The Main Hall

Wild West Diego, Beast Tamer Extrodinair VAwa0YC


Diego and Yakuroro would find themselves in a familiar situation, as they both were transported through space to a new and strange land. The stars passed by at a fast rate, threatening to create a sense of vertigo within the two. The sights stopped, suddenly turning to pure darkness. Their senses for sight and sound picked up nothing.

This seemed to go on for a short period of time, before the environment that they were in began to focus into view. It was a cavernous system, molded through what seemed to be running water that had long since dried out. About the cavern were clusters of stone, various shapes and sizes, that floated in the air. Those that had traveled into this dungeon would note that walking seemed more difficult for them, and that the air itself seemed to be thicker.

A sound could be heard from down the hall, though the echoes had made it unintelligible. If the two followed the only cavern hall down, they would come to an open space. This space had three entrances, each hall leading off to its own separate plot. There was an entrance to the diagonal of them on the right, an entrance straight ahead, and an entrance on the diagonal on their left. From here, the noise that they had heard was much clearer, and it could be heard from each hallway.


The noise:

Swirling chaos surrounded Diego as he was ripped from the fabric of reality and thrust into a new dimension. Even though he had experienced this once before, it still took him by surprise and panic threatened to overcome him. He steeled himself and opened his eyes to see a rush of stars whooshing past him as if he were traveling quickly through space. Diego looked around to see if he could find any of his party, when suddenly everything went dark and silence reigned.

A short time later, he was dumped into a cavernous system. Diego landed on his butt and let out a relieved breath. He had made it into the dungeon. He turned around to see Madam Trixie who proceeded to lick his face with a purr. Zanzibar warbled out in protest at the weird entrance they had just experienced. Diego smiled and quickly gave each of his pets some skritches before standing up.

He finally spotted Yakuroro and Akatetsu nearby, "Guess we're at the point of no return."

Diego strung his Determination and removed an arrow, laying it across the shaft of the bow in preparation. Glancing around the cavern, Diego noticed that various rocks floated in the air above them scattered around the chamber. He took a deep breath and nodded towards the magician before proceeding onwards. Every step seemed to take more effort than normal, something he found curious.

From further within the cavern, Diego could hear muffled noises that wafted through the rocky passageways to finally reach their ears. His eyes scanned for danger as he continued onward, the earlier excitement of reaching the dungeon now gone and replaced by total caution. It was one thing to rush to the dungeon, it was another thing to rush through the dungeon, heedless of the danger.

They followed the cavern hall further and soon came to an open place with three passageways, left, right and center. The voices were clearer now, but they echoed off the walls, making it hard to determine which location it came from. Diego paused to decide which path to travel, briefly looking up at Yaku to see if he had any suggestions. Finally, the Fanalis boy decided to go with his instinct and pointed towards the left path. If Yakuroro had no objections, Diego would lead the party down that path. Trixie pushed her way ahead of Diego, a measure of protection for her master, putting herself between Diego and any threats.

((When did transportation to a dungeon turn into warp speed from star wars?))

Yakuroro found the entrance to the dungeon starkly different from what he had experienced and thought to be standard. Instead of the golden tunnel of light bringing them to a view of a beautiful blue planet, there were only the distant shimmer of stars rushing past in a seemingly endless void of black. It was far less stunning and a bit disappointing for Yakuroro as he muttered to himself, "The last one was prettier..." as he floated in dark nothingness.

When his perception of the world around him faded into focus, the Imuchakk found himself lying on a hard floor staring up at a cave ceiling. Yakuroro was gathering his bearings when Akatetsu's face hovered over him and blocked out his view. The Chimera was making a concerned groan but lightened up when Yakuroro showed he was fine by reaching up to pat the beast. "I'm alright, Tetsu."

With a groan, the Imuchakk got to his feet and found his bottomless gourd on the ground next to him. Hefting the magic tool onto his back and grasping his staff in hand, Yakuroro turned to see Diego and his beasts. The Imuchakk nodded back and together they proceeded. Yakuroro would have no complains about the boy's choice in which way to go once they reached the crossroads. The sound of singing seemed to be coming from every path so there wasn't much point in stressing themselves with a choice. Something told Yakuroro they would all end up leading to the same place sooner or later anyways.

Instead, the Imuchakk was more focused on keeping an eye out for any artifacts or texts in hopes of finding something worth recording or collecting for his research. The magician had largely ignored the past dungeons that had arisen, but now that he was in one again, the researcher in his soul was hungry for knowledge.

((The same time that I didn't realize dungeon transportation was limited to only one way, lol. Warp speed, captain.))

An old man, sitting upon a floating chair of gears, gazed into a crystal ball as two individuals were being transported into his dungeon. He raised an eyebrow as one of the two that were being transported had made a comment of how he preferred a prior experience over the dungeon here. Narrowing his eyes, he looked over this group closely. "Is that... A King Candidate? Yes. It is... And a beast master, as well. The both of them." He leaned forward, watching both groups as they had gone through their different parts of the dungeon. It seemed as if the King Candidate were looking for... Something...

Shaking his head, he simply watched as the two made their way to the main cavern, and were posed with a multiple choice for going down various paths. "Will Fate support this group, or will it force them to follow the wrong road... Hmmm, it certainly does make things interesting when it works in that manner..." The old man continued to stroke his beard, watching the developments as they took place.




Diego and Yakuroro would shortly find themselves within a hall that held three blue lizardmen, toiling away at a wall. It looked as if they were beginning to work on expanding the place, and they were doing quite well for themselves, as well. Ocassionally, a red lizardman would crack his whip to add punctuation to the tune they were carrying, though he seemed quite pleased with their progress. "Yesssss. Show thossssse buffooonssssss whosssse bessssst. We'll take firsssst at thisss rate! A sssmarter promotion... Will be in order!" The miners were doing a fairly good job, striking the right places and at a good rate. Each individual blue lizardman was three meters from the closest companion, with the red lizardman walking away from Yakuroro and Diego, one meter from the center blue lizardman.

((After speaking OOC Diego and I have decided it would make the most sense if I posted first for this round of posts.))

The left path seemed to lead to more cave even as Yakuroro and Diego ventured deeper into the dungeon. This was very different from Marax's interior making the Imuchakk hmm to himself quietly. So not all dungeons were alike? This was of interest to the Imuchakk as the last dungeon he was in had exquisite architecture and great open halls that almost seemed to go on forever. It was disappointing that there were no such grand handiworks here as he had hoped there would be. Perhaps if he cross referenced the design to those found across the real world he might learn who made these dungeons. But the fact that they found themselves in a seemingly naturally made cave meant that close of that nature were around. Thankfully there was some degree of culture up ahead based on the singing.

As they approached close enough to lay eyes on the lizards Yakuroro held out a hand for Diego to stop and observe. Truth be told, when Yakuroro entered Marax he never actually laid eyes on a single dungeon beast even once. The invisible men were taken out by Zadi long before they became a threat, and the beast that tried to attack them in the midway fell to its doom before they could find out what the shroud of darkness surrounding it was. As such, he didn't know that such creatures had the potential for hostility and judging from the way they were speaking, they had some degree of intelligence.

Leaving everyone else behind, Yakuroro would slowly approach the group of Lizardmen and when he was roughly 5m away, he would call out to them. Based on what the red one said, they were in a hurry to meet some sort of quota. Foolish as it might be, Yakuroro's words were meant to offer assistance in this task hoping that they might receive help in return. "Where there's a whip~" Yakuroro spoke up before continuing to join in their song in a friendly manner, "There's a way~" Assuming the whip struck again, Yakuroro would begin speaking in time with the singing, "Greetings, my friends~" The magician would give a slight bow. "Perhaps we can help~"

Diego could hear the voices clearer the further they followed the path. The rock walls soon opened into a chamber where he found the source of the noise. Three blue lizard-like creatures were singing merrily as they used pickaxes to carve into a side of the wall. Behind them, a red lizard watched over there work while whipping in time with the melody.

He came to a stop at Yakuroro's signal, watching over the scene before him. So far the lizardfolk did not seem hostile nor did they seem to have noticed the groups entrance. Diego lowered his bow as the Imuchakk walked on ahead and hesitated a moment before following behind. Trixie prodded along at Diego's side and came to a stop with him a few feet behind Yakuroro. Looking around the large man's left side, Diego waved towards the lizardfolks with a friendly smile on his face.

"Hiya!" If the lizardfolks proved hostile, Diego was ready to react with the bow already in his hand. Until then, he was of the mind to give them the benefit of the doubt. The creatures in Caim's dungeon had been aggressive from the start and besides the huge Tengu in the Chamber, none had displayed the ability to talk. His curiosity was piqued by the beasts to say the least.

In contrast to the first group, the second group had made the same decision together. "Hmmm. Interesting. This group would try for diplomacy as well. Both groups have a strong guiding hand from Fate... Yet... This decision seems to be backed by a purity of kindness, and not from a calculated decision. Let us watch as their trials unfold..." The Djinn was pleased with their commitment to the same approach, yet kept those thoughts to himself.






The lizardmen stopped in place, looking towards Yakuroro and Diego. The red one, their leader, spoke to the group of lizardmen, halting them before they could move forward on the two. "Wait. They have resssspect." The red leader walked forward, in front of his group, and spoke to Yakuroro and Diego. "Yessss, you may help. We are guardiansssss of the way. Thisssss issss a trial. Yet you approach ussss, and assssk to asssisssst. Thisssss issss the deal. We will fight, and if we win, you will work in thesssse minessss with ussss for the next ten daysssss. If you win, we will tell you where the next door isssssss."

Without awaiting an agreement, the three blue lizardmen moved forward at the behest of the red lizardmen's body langauge; he had moved his tail to point to the three of them, and point towards Trixie, Akatetsu and Yakuroro. The red lizardman followed behind them, with the intent to support his allies if any attacks occurred to strike them. The Lizardmen attacking Yakuroro and Akatetsu would strike out with their Mining Strike, a horizontal blow. Trixie, however, would be attacked by a Mining Blow in an attempt to harm the tiger.

The red lizardman's support would include his Whip Crack, and if he was attacked directly he would clash against it with a technique, Whip Vortex, which would create a sharp movement around his body in a cone shape, tapering wider from his head down to his feet.

Diego listened to the lisping lizardman's bargain keenly and found it to be a fair deal. Even as the blue lizardmen moved forward, he nodded his head with a childlike grin on his face. He was up to the challenge of fighting these unknown lizards. They had proven not to be hostile, but they clearly settled matters with strength. While Diego considered himself to be the weakest among his friends, he had spent time training since the Brotherhood of Ash and he was here to obtain more.


"Deal!" He raised his bow, nocking the arrow he had prepared and sent it flying four meters behind the red lizard, after judging everyone's position. This arrow was a new one he had learned to craft since he and Yakuroro's last battle together, one that created a big Bodda-Boom. He had sent it far enough away that the resulting explosion shouldn't hit his allies, but at the same time hit the lizardmen, if not the lizardman holding the whip at the very least. It would also be within range of the wall that the blue lizardmen had been digging previously. He did offer to help them after all.

Meanwhile, the blue lizardman came after Trixie who stood at her master's left. When the pick-axe wielding lizard raised his weapon to strike the tiger, the white spider upon her back would let out a warbled cry before discharging a Webbed-Net towards the aggressor. The sticky web would be aimed to wrap around the creature's hand and the weapon it was holding to hopefully throw off the attack.

Trixie saw the attack coming and was about to react when she heard Zanzibar's cry. After several battles, the tiger and spider had learned to synchronize with each other. Trusting Zanzibar's attempt to distract the lizardman she moved in to swipe at its abdomen with her Metallic Claws. The sharp protrusions from her paw could cut through tissue and muscle with ease, most likely more than she needed to defeat the creature, but it would ensure the threat was put down. Any threat left standing was another that could harm Diego and that was all the reason she needed.

The proposal the red lizardman made was an intriguing gesture to Yakuroro. Thankful that it was not made in song, Yakuroro cast off the pretense of singing his words to the creatures. But what they said was a bit confusing. Why would they accept the offer of help if their job was to fight people as part of some trial? Yakuroro didn't have much time to ponder the details sadly. The blue lizardmen were on the approach readying their pickaxes for battle. Not aware of any spells he possessed which could defeat these reptilians without dealing them excessive harm, Yakuroro decided that he would fight them with the same barbaric means that they were employing. Before the Imuchakk could take action, there was the loose of an arrow followed by an explosion which startled the magician, but he still managed to keep his wits about him long enough to will his borg to silence for the incoming attack.

Instead of being repelled by a hard shell of magoi, the Lizard's pick axe would swing into Yakuroro's raised right arm. A dull thud sounded and a mild pain radiated from the impact point through the Imuchakk's limb. He had stepped forward so only the handle of the weapon would meet flesh, but the primitive tool was sturdy and it would likely leave a bruise. From this position there was no chance to properly aim a spell from the staff held in Yakuroro's right hand so instead, he lunged forward into the lizardman with an uppercut to the beastman's stomach. "Tighten your stomach!" The Imuchakk warned as his fist sought to drive itself firmly into the lizardman's gut...or at least where a gut would normally be on a human. While Yakuroro lacked the incredible strength of most among his kin, his punches could still break bones should he attack with full strength. For this reason, he would try to use less force than he was fully capable of imparting C-tier strength behind his attack.

Meanwhile, Akatetsu had come to stand to Akatetsu's right once Diego and his own beasts approached. He found the lizardmen to be curious things and was interested in observing them more before the sudden and unexpected skirmish began. As one of the blue scaled lizard-folk moved towards him with a strike from his pickaxe, Akatetsu responded by simply ramming forwards to tackle the reptile with his bone covered skull. The pickaxe would dig into the flesh around Akatetsu's neck just past his skull and succeed in drawing a bit of blood. But the damage would be negligible and paled in comparison to the bone breaking force his carbonized skull would carry.

The old man grasped his chair and leaned forward at the sight of the battle that he was watching within the crystal ball. "Leongarddra. Come. Watch alongside me. Allow me to show you what had just taken place..." The old man's chair floated forward, landing on a platform. Moments later a shadow engulfed the old man, the shadow of an incredibly large being.

It watched from the side of the old man's shoulder, listening to the exchange between the contenders and the creatures. When the explosive arrow had went off, the creature laughed with a deep and rocky voice. "Master Gremory, surely you cannot fault him. He is but a child."

Gremory cast a sidelong glance to Leongarddra. "You must constantly be aware of your strength, and what you are capable of. The real question is if he simply did not know, or if he did not care about the outcome. That, we shall soon see."




Diego's Bodda-Boom flew somewhat true, but during its flight it was partially intercepted by the Lizard Foreman. His Whip Crack struck out at it, knocking off a piece of the arrow which would make its resulting explosion slightly less powerful. The Foreman, however, did not realize exactly what that arrow was meant to do; he only believed it to be troublesome. A bit of intuition and reasoning had given him that much. When his whip had impacted the arrow, the arrow exploded. Diego and his group were safe from the explosion, yet each of the individual lizardmen had been caught up within that explosion.

They had only a short moment to scream as the flames from the arrow made quick work of them, engulfing them completely and making roast lizard. Their dead bodies lay upon the floor, medium-rare. Something shone from the body of the red lizardman from within his pocket. If one were to check, they would find a small golden bracelet. A closer inspection on the interior of the bracelet would show words for the Toran language that say 'communication' upon it. There did not seem to be any magical circle on the bracelet, however.

Further down the hallway was a split; one that went to the right, at an angle somewhat backwards, and one that went to the left at an angle away from them.

The actions of battle Yakuroro and Akatetsu would have taken would never see fruition. The premature detonation of Diego's arrow had catastrophic results and when the explosion cleared, Yakuroro looked in horror as the several lizard men were reduced to charred heaps of now dead flesh. "No!" The Imuchakk shouted running forward to kneel by the red lizardman's side. Taking the corpse into his arms in a vain hope that the beast was still alive. "Oi! Hang in there!" Yaku pleaded, but to no avail. The red lizard remained unnaturally still and did not respond. In truth, Yakuroro was not emotionally distraught over the loss of life. He was more so upset over the loss of potential information these creatures could have provided. While it seemed like they employed slave labour, something he did not condone, they surely had their own culture. It was a tragic loss that he lost the chance to learn more about them as well as the chance to receive their help in proceeding through the dungeon.

Yakuroro gently lowered the foreman to the ground in solemn acceptance that the strange being's life was over. As he did, the magician noticed a light coming from the lizardman's pocket and curious Imuchakk hands investigated. It was a bracelet, and careful examination revealed an inscription upon one of its surfaces. "...Communication..." Yakuroro muttered to himself using his knowledge of the ancient language to read the text. Not sure about the meaning of the object just yet, Yakuroro began to examine it as he stood and scolded diego for his actions without looking at the boy. "A bit dangerous of an attack for creatures willing to help us...don't you think?" He then gave pause to his observations on the bracelet to turn and look the fanalis youth in the eyes, "These reptiles did not deserve death Diego. If innocent humans stood in the path of you and Jagang...would you treat them with the same mercilessness?"

Yakuroro was unaware of the boy's innocent intent behind the attack or that it was the red lizardman's own actions that led to its death. Based on his understanding of the situation he began to fear that Diego was becoming corrupted by his path of vengeance. After Diego responds, Yakuroro would look back the the bracelet and resume his examination silently. The Imuchakk and his chimera would follow behind Diego whenever the boy decided to push onwards and left the decision of what path to take up to him.

Diego had intended for the explosive arrow to deal more damage to the wall they had been mining than to the lizardmen, but the interference from the Red Lizardman's whip led to disastrous results. The four lizardmen perished in the resulting explosion and it seemed that no harm had come to the wall. Still, his allies seemed unharmed so they had only lost the potential for information. Madam Trixie and Zanzibar's attacks also did not have a chance to go off before the explosion.

Diego stared at the charred bodies laying before him with pain in his eyes. He hardly noticed Yakuroro shout out, his mind focused on the results of the arrow. Never having actually used one in combat, he now had a healthy respect for the degree of destruction capable. If it had been closer, his friends could have gotten hurt. Diego admonished himself before Yakuroro even began to chastise the boy.

Still, the deed was done and he had made his choice. The lizardmen had wanted a fight, whether that deserved death or not, was not a question in the boy's mind. Sparring with Ilirran had shown the Fanalis a different ideology of strength, during the time they had spent together. The leopard-headed Imuchakk had asked Diego, Trixie and Zanzibar to fight with everything they had during a spar, finding it disrespectful not to. Diego understood that philosophy and applied it to the challenge that had been given by the Red Lizardman.

Yakuroro would turn to find a resolved Diego staring back at him. The resolve in his face would change to surprise, hurt and then anger at the mention of Jagang. "I didn't mean to kill them! I had hoped to hit closer to the wall to help them and at least injure them. The red one hit it with his whip."

He turned away from Yakuroro to look around the room, "I don't see what Jagang has to do with this, either! I want to kill him, not innocent people! Even if they stood in my way, I'm not him."

Diego sighed and shook his head, "Let's go." He motioned to Madam Trixie to follow him and headed towards the right path to see where it took them.

Gremory and Leongarddra simply watched on as the two spoke, and made their way forward. While he was judging those who entered, not every movement and every action was under scrutiny. He was simply working on getting a better understanding of those that had come to challenge the trials...




As Yakuroro and Diego traveled the path, Yakuroro would find that the object split apart at one point. The object itself was fairly new, only fifteen years of age. The culture behind the item was actually a combination of both Heliohapt and Reim, in nature. There were designs that one could find on artifacts of Reim, and the particular mold was actually a Heliohapt-type mold. If he examined the connector that allowed the artifact to become a solid bracelet, he would have the opportunity to notice that there was, in fact, a magical circle on the object; simply not in plain sight. As the two continued to move, the bracelet twitched in his hand. After continual research of the object, it would be possible to determine that the bracelet could activate with a very minor amount of magoi, much like the Magic Carpet. Should Yakuroro activate it, he would note the sudden presence of 4 individuals; a particularly heavy one behind him, further down the way they had originally deviated from. A moderate one ahead of him, and two moderate ones further to the right of him, one of which being more distant than the other.


Almost at the same time, they had reached a split in the cavern; one going forward, and another going right. Down both ways, Diego and Yakuroro would be able to catch sight of a red lizardman. But it seemed as if neither of them had quite caught on to the two, yet, as the one to their right was patrolling while the one straight ahead seemed to be leading another group of blue lizardmen.

It seemed as though Yakuroro's investigations yielded rather peculiar findings. The item in question had traits of Reim and Heliohapt evident within its design and craftsmanship and yet ancient Torran inscriptions. On top of that, it had a well hidden engraving reminiscent of the magic tools in Yaku's possession. Curious, the magician wore the bracelet on his left wrist and allowed a subtle sum of magoi to flow into its metallic form. As they came to the fork, the Imuchakk found his senses assaulted by a strange sensation. There were...presences around him in various directions. Looking ahead, Yakuroro could spot what seemed to be the source of some of the detected beings. Or was he simply detecting the bracelets they wore? Yakuroro quickly removed his supply of magoi to the  bracelet fearing that the lizardmen could sense his presence as well but not before taking notice of the heavier one back the way they had come.

"Diego..." Yakuroro whispered as he turned to look back. The direction of the larger presence was different than those of the red lizardmen ahead. Yakuroro wondered if this meant there were many in one place or if something akin to their leader was present down the path they had decided against. "We should go back the other way." The Imuchakk spoke with a grin, his excitement rising at the prospect of perhaps speaking to some kind of lizardman chieftain. Hopefully another fatal accident did not occur to prevent him from having a good talk with the creature.

Yakuroro became engrossed in this fantasy that he would be getting to talk to an older, wiser lizardman. For some reason the believed that there would be much to learn by going down the path they had almost over looked. "There's something interesting!" He exclaimed in hushed excitement before hurrying back down the path they'd come from only to turn down the one they'd skipped. Akatetsu trotted along behind his father and growled curiously not really understanding how Yakuroro knew that there was something of note down this other path. As the Imuchakk turned the corner and began down the new path, he slowed his steps and powered the bracelet once again, eager to test its limitations and capabilities. Would the sensation get stronger as he got closer? Would the "lizardman elder" he seemingly expected to find be surprised to see them, or would it be able to likewise sense his presence? There were many questions and Yakuroro hoped that this path would lead to answers.

As Diego proceeded further into the cavern, he looked back to see if Yakuroro had followed. He cast a curious look towards the Imuchakk who was fiddling with a bracelet, studying it intently. Diego shrugged and left Yakuroro to his fascinations while he kept an eye on the path ahead. The Fanalis held his bow in one hand, while his other stroked Trixie's neck.

Finally they came to a split in the path, another choice to be made. Diego peeked around both avenues to see what would be ahead. A red lizard could be seen at the end of each path and Diego peeked his head back quickly to avoid being seen. Yakuroro's whisper drew Diego's attention to the magician who wore a grin on his face. Diego was confused by the Imuchakk's excitement, but when Yakuroro took off, he followed behind.

Diego occasionally glanced behind them to ensure they hadn't been followed or overheard, as Yakuroro led the party back into the room they just came and along the path they had ignored before. Diego inquired quietly, "What is it?"

His eyes dropped to the bracelet that Yakuroro had been studying and raised a brow. The better question to ask may have been, how did he know there was something? Diego continued to watch his friend carefully, hoping to gain insight to the Imuchakk's actions. Yakuroro slowed his steps and If the Fanalis had been able to see the Rukh, he would have been able to confirm that the bracelet was a magical tool. Instead, Diego only had a gut feeling that came from his experience with his own Beast Tamer's Bracelet.

Gremory seemed somewhat pleased at the progress of the second group. He smiled as they turned back down the course. "Leon... Look. The blue one, though he is already a King Candidate, he is wise. I suppose the child was smart to bring him along into the dungeon. They immediately changed course to the appropriate direction..." Gremory drummed his fingers, watching as they approached their next trial. He hoped this proved to be fruitous.




It did not seem that either of the lizardfolk that were down the halls in the two directions had taken note of them. It was likely that the effect lead to each of the other objects, and that it was an active effort to check up on the others around them. Before long, both Yakuroro and Diego would approach a lizard-like being who was differentiated compared to the others due to the set of wings on his back. The bracelet was upon this particular creature's wrist, and he watched the group round the corner to him as if he were expecting them.

If they chose to approach him, he would watch them with a wary eye. Unlike the prior hallway that had lead to each individual location, this one was slightly smaller in size; it would not be a simple matter to go around the creature, as the hall was only approximately 2.5 meters in diameter, and curved off to the back after five meters. It spoke to the group. "I am the trial master of this floor. I will give you two choices, in order to delve deeper into this tower. You may choose to fight me in combat, or in wits. If you choose wits, then you must answer a question I bring up to you... Yet there are rules to answering my question. The two of you are considered a team, so if one answers incorrectly you are both incorrect." The dragon seemed to watch the two, suspiciously, yet did not make any hostile movements so long as they didn't.

"My question is multiple choice, meaning you must select from a number of choices available to you. There is only one 'right' answer. The only words I will accept is 'one' or 'two', and you only have 10 seconds to answer. Discussing the question, or saying anything other than the words 'one' or 'two' will mark your answer as invalid." As if not even needing to think on the question, the creature asked away. "You find yourself in a tough spot, and your friend is about to fall off a cliff and die, but your life-long beast partner is losing a battle against another beast and is about to die as well. You only have enough time to save one, as they are too far away from each other to reach both of them. One: Save your friend. Two: Save your beast-partner. You have ten seconds. Once those ten seconds are up, you may choose to explain your choice."

As they walked down the pathway, it opened up into a small chamber with a large lizardman sitting in the center. It had large wings that were folded at its back and it stared at the Fanalis and Imuchakk that had arrived as if it had expected them. As Diego studied the creature, he noticed a bracelet on its wrist of similar design as the one Yakuroro had been tinkering with.

When the winged lizardman spoke, Diego was surprised to hear that the Half-Dragon had no traces of a lisp and his words betrayed a hint of superior intellect compared to the previous lizardmen. He listened to the creature's words carefully, understanding that the half-dragon was more interested in a battle of wits than fighting, at least at the moment. Diego noted that he and Yakuroro would have to provide a similar answer to win this challenge, without discussing it. He turned to the Imuchakk, watching his features carefully as the question was asked.

The half-dragon inquired on how they would react when faced with a situation that would either have them lose a friend or lose their beast partner. The question evoked a number of emotions on the Fanalis' boys face as he considered his response deeply. Diego tried to imagine the scenario in his head where he would be torn between saving Yakuroro or Trixie. While he knew Trixie longer and shared a deep bond, he had also grown attached to Yakuroro. The Imuchakk had become a role model to Diego, displaying intelligence, courage, and strength. Yakuroro also seemed to have an ability to make any problem seem easier with just a bit of talking it out. In the end, Yakuroro displayed all the qualities that Diego cherished in a friendship and Diego would be torn to sacrifice that.

On the other hand, Madam Trixie had been there through many dark times that Yakuroro had not been a part of. She had been his only friend in a lonely world, after losing his family. They had huddled together in the woods, sharing each others warmth and suffering from hunger together when he did not have enough money for food or a bed. In battle, Trixie showed great courage or reckless abandon, depending on how you looked at it, just to protect him. She would rather take a life threatening wound than see Diego suffer. The idea of that brought a tear to his eye and the idea of losing her threatened worse.

Diego knew he only had a few seconds left to choose an answer and he wracked his mind for what he would choose. Then an idea struck him, what if he should be thinking of not how he would answer, but how Yakuroro would choose to answer. That thought ended quickly when Diego realized that he was not sure how Yakuroro would respond. So, it came down to Diego giving the Half-Dragon his honest answer.

'3...2....1...' Diego counted down the seconds in his mind without providing a response. The lack of an answer was the Fanalis' boys answer, he could not choose between those he cherished. The idea of having to either sacrifice a friend or his pets was not an option. He would find a way to save both, even if it meant his death. Diego started at the lizardman with determination in his eyes, waiting to see how he reacted.

If the half-dragon asked for an explanation of why he did not answer, Diego would reply softly, "I can't choose between those I care most about. My friends and beasts are too important to me to consider sacrificing one or the other." Madam Trixie let out a purr and rubbed her head against his leg, sensing that something was troubling the boy. Diego kept his eyes on the half-dragon to see if his answer was accepted.

As the larger looking Dragonoid came into view, Yakuroro's eyes lit up and he became filled with a child-like wonder. This excitement only grew when the creature began to speak man's tongue quite fluently. This made the magician's heart soar at the implications this held. Just how civilized were the upper portions of this reptile culture? Where did they learn Reim and Heliohapt craftsmanship? Or the Torran Languange and how to create magic tools? Yakuroro began to think that perhaps there were even fellow magician's among their ranks, what a glorious thought indeed. Yakuroro had many questions for the Half-Dragon but before he could get them out a slightly vexing challenge was revealed by the beast. It was initially exciting to hear that they could choose to opt for a test of intellect rather than brawn. Yakuroro felt a refreshing contrast from this dungeon in regards to how Imuchakk society ran. Never before, save in Magnostadt, had Yakuroro felt like his mind was really valued higher than his flesh.

Yakuroro found it hard to accept the condition that he could not speak anything other than one word answers until the quiz was over. He had so much he wanted to say to the Half-Dragon but sadly it would have to wait until after the quiz was over. The Imuchakk listened to the explanation and the question from start to finish and once ended, his face contorted into an unpleasant frown. The idea that one of these answers was "right" made Yakuroro feel a bit disappointed in the Half Dragon. What kind of culture did they possess which made either of the choices more reasonable than the other. The question was a paradoxical demand to choose between two loved ones and let the unchosen perish. What kind of person would accept such terms?

Yakuroro looked to Diego and then to Akatetsu and found himself unable to decide between the two. In his eyes there was no difference between if Diego had died or if his Chimeric son did. Both experiences would likely be unsettling and one distinction in particular bothered him. Akatetsu was not a life-long partner for Akatetsu and both the lives in question belonged to "friends" meaning that both answers were essentially the same thing. Looking back to Diego, Yakuroro him thinking intently on the answer he would choose. Seeing this, Yakuroro decided that he would trust the boy's innocence to find the "right" answer. Yakuroro's detachment from others made him poorly suited to answering this riddle. Hopefully Diego's longer bond with Trixie would somehow give him a better perspective on how to proceed.

But the fanalis youth did not answer. Yakuroro was surprised that he just remained silent up till the end allowing them to fail with no answer given at all. He was almost positive that he would have opted to save his beast companion. But surprise gave way to a smile as Diego expressed why he had chosen the unlisted third option. Yakuroro readied his staff and looked to the Half-Dragon once again with a smirk and stated his own feelings. "You heard the boy." Yakuroro placed a hand on Akatetsu as he exclaimed, "Our beasts are our friends! There is no distinction between them! If it came down to it, we'd try to save both. There's no way we could decide between the two." Akatetsu then roared in agreement, "Gyarwar!"

The old man chuckled. "Leongarddra, by intent or by accident, both groups have performed admirably. I'm curious on who all caught the nuances in the question provided. Either way, I'm impressed at the performance so far." A warm smile crossed his face.

The beast lumbered around to the front of the old man's chair, no longer watching from over his shoulder. The sounds made from his movements were purely from the various collections of jewelery attached to the creature's pants. "Old man, next is the trial by combat. Show me what they're made of..."






The half-dragon let out a deep rumbling laugh. "Yes, that's it! That's the spirit! The correct answer to the question was to not speak at all. Neither answer can be considered 'right'. I approve... Ah, blue-haired one. You have an inquisitive look about you. Is there something you are curious about?" The half-dragon seemed to be in a fairly good mood, and would spend a moment of time with Yakuroro to answer any questions he could. Once a certain amount of time had passed, the half-dragon would interrupt any further questions. "It would truly be wise to continue on to the next floor. Best of luck, to the both of you. Oh... Keep in mind, in life you may find yourself in a difficult position. One in which you must make an impossible choice between saving one loved one or another. Where it is impossible to save both. While neither answer is right, you may have to make such a choice..."

Once they walked past the half-dragon, and continued down the hall, they would find that it wound to the left. It continued until the winding of the hallway got sharper and sharper. Finally, they arrived at a portal. Touching it would bring them to the next room...


OOC:

Yaku, if you have any questions, feel free to ask the half-dragon that series of questions and then continue onward to the next room. I'll post a reply to those questions, to the best of the half-dragon's capability, at the beginning of the post and then post the new room's description once you touch the door.

P.s. (Consider this post to have been made on the 13th).

Yakuroro couldn't say that he was disappointed the battle he was expecting did not take place. The purpose and deeper meaning behind the quiz became apparent soon after the Half-Dragon began his explanation. The Imuchakk immediately felt an appreciation for Diego's presence in the dungeon. Had the boy not been there, Yakuroro would likely not have given the slightest thought to the lose of a "friend" in comparison to Akatetsu considering how few of them he actually had. The magician may have even said answer "two" simply to ensure that Akatetsu did not feel unappreciated. This really was what a "friend" was, wasn't it? Yaku thought to himself as he turned to Diego and gave the youth a smile in celebration of their success. Despite being younger and fairly naive at times, Diego could teach Yakuroro lessons he never really had a chance or interest to learn throughout his own life. They could support each other in ways that were not possible between passing strangers that do not place trust in one another. "Great job Diego!"

When given leave to ask what was on his mind, Yakuroro's eyes narrowed slightly and the nature of his smile became a bit more sly. Like a viper sizing up a meal. "Yes, I do have questions. To start, these bracelets. Assuming the others are crafted like this one, they are made with styles from one country and tools from another. In addition, they bear the language of a lost civilization and magical enchantment. Where did your people learn to produce them?" Yakuroro held up his left arm to show off the bracelet as he spoke before letting it rest as he continued on to his other inquiries. "I also would like to know about the culture and history of your people. You seem to be in higher social standing than the lizardmen we came across earlier. What is your role in their society and how did your people come to be?" Yakuroro had other questions in mind, but he thought it best to be brief assuming he had yet to be interrupted. "Are there others higher up than you deeper in the dungeon? A reptilian leader perhaps? Is there anything you can tell be about them and their responsibilities?"

When his curiosity was sated or otherwise interrupted, Yakuroro would heed the Half-Dragon's suggestion to proceed with haste and nodded to Diego before advancing onward. At the end of the winding hall he would approach the portal with caution and make an aloud inference, "I think this doorway might be like the gate of the dungeon...once we enter, there might not be any turning back. Are you prepared for anything?" Upon getting confirmation from both Diego and Akatetsu, Yakuroro would then reach out and attempt to pass through the portal first.

Diego pumped his fist into the air when the half-dragon said that they had answered right by staying silent. Yakuroro's praise of the Fanalis earned a grin that stretched ear to ear. It had been a hard question, a hard situation to fathom and Diego was glad that it was over with. He listened to Yakuroro proceed with a multitude of questions regarding the bracelets, the lizardmen's society, and their social structure. He listened idly to the questions and their answers, curious to learn the information as well, but still fascinated by how excited the Imuchakk was to gain knowledge. Diego had never seen the scholarly side of Yakuroro before and it impressed him. No wonder the magician seemed so smart, he dedicated himself to the pursuit of knowledge.

Finally, the half-dragon interjected by suggesting they move along to the next floor. Diego started to walk away when the half-dragon continued by pointing out that while the question had been hypothetical, it could become a reality in the future. This thought scared Diego to his core and the horror at having to choose came back in a flash. He touched the fur along Trixie's neck to calm himself down, realizing that if that situation arose in the future, then he would have to do everything in his power to help both. If he couldn't, Diego had to hope he knew which choice to make.

Diego turned to the half-dragon, balling his right hand into a fist and placing it into the palm of his left hand, and gave him a bow. "Thank you. I had never considered that I may have had to make a choice like that in the future. While I don't think I am ready to make such a decision, you helped me realize that prospect. I appreciate the lesson you taught me."

With that Diego flashed a smile to the half-dragon before skipping away, "Come on~ Let's go see what's next!"

They traveled up a winding staircase before finally reaching a door. With a nod to Yakuroro to show he was ready, he waited for Yakuroro to touch the door before following behind him. What awaited them in the next room?

The dragon looked at Yakuroro pensively as he considered the questions, answer each one as they came up. "We learned to produce them in the City of Mirrors. The ways are taught by the Djinn of this dungeon, and the language... Well, that is not information for me to provide." He stopped and listened to the next question Yakuroro had to ask. He explained that their people, specifically, began as the blue lizardmen he had seen from before. As they grow more learned, they go through a metamorphosis to a higher capacity of intelligence. He continued to explain that this was the only trial floor that contained the lizardfolk, and that outside of the trial floor he acts in the capacity of a guiding figure for education. He explains that everything from within the dungeon was created by the Djinn. As for the last question, the Half-Dragon paused. "Higher up than myself, in the reptilian family? No. But be wary; the next floor will be a test of strength, not wits. Do not attempt to speak to the beasts who will fight you there."


Once the two had touched the gate, they were transported to a vast expanse of space, wherein they stood upon an open platform. The platform itself had rails, and lead to a staircase. The strange thing about the staircase, however, was that the incline became extremely sharp and bent at a seemingly impossible angle for them to walk on. If their eyes followed the stairway, they would see a long floor that lead to a door that was partially covered in what looks to be some sort of mist.

If they were to walk up the stairs they would find that gravity switched its pull at the moment of the angled staircase. A small sense of disorientation would rush towards the two from the sudden change of up being down, and down being up. As soon as they took a step upon the pathway a single bipedal creature stood up from within the cloudy mist and began to walk towards them.

It held wolven features and was moving in a manner reminiscent of a predator approaching its prey. There was a keen intelligence behind its eyes as it sized up its opponents.

As the previous room faded away, Diego emerged into a realm vastly different than before. A three meter long platform stretched through an expanse of space. The Fanalis gazed in awe at the glittering stars, colorful nebulas, and was that a planet? He walked over to the edge nearby and looked over the railing to see below them. Diego was amazed by the formations galaxies made in the distance.

The half-dragon's words rung in his ears and snapped him back to the dangers of the dungeon. This floor posed a test of might, he couldn't afford to be distracted. He skipped back over to walk next to Yakuroro with Trixie on his other side. He prepared an arrow as they walked towards the staircase, ready to strike out at any foes that appeared. He paused before the staircase, noticing how it bent at an odd angle. He let out a breath of air and continued up the stairs, hoping he didn't fall.

Suddenly, he felt his stomach flip and felt like something had messed with his orientation, but he didn't fall. At the top of the stairs, Diego took a few steps before coming to a stop as a wolven creature started to emerge from a cloud of mist. Heeding the half-dragon's words, Diego clicked a command to Trixie to heel while he sent an arrow towards the werewolf. He followed up with three more arrows, adjusting his aim with each if the creature moved to account for its trajectory.

"Hooo~ I was expecting the city of mirrors the reptile told us of, but this is equally impressive." Yakuroro said in appreciation of the fantastical view around them. It reminded him on the first time he entered a dungeon and part of Yakuroro wondered if the two spaces were linked some how despite this one being rather different in its own right. The path seemingly made of stone was one difference in particular that stood out. "We should heed the warning our lizard friend gave us Diego. Stay on your guard." Yakuroro reminded Diego of the danger they were told to expect in this trial of strength before proceeding onwards.

As they approached the stairs, Yakuroro let himself get wrapped up in thought trusting that the many keen eyes their group had would notify him of any threats. Between the fanalis boy and all the beasts, it would be surprising for a foe to catch them by surprise on a path such as this. Instead of being vigilant about spotting enemies, the magician was busy thinking about what the Half-Dragon's words meant. The first part of the dungeon was a trial of wits? The second a trial of strength? What did this say about the Djinn resting at the end of the path? Yakuroro's experience in Marax was beginning to feel like an illusion in and of itself. Did he end up facing similar tests without ever realizing it? Perhaps that was fitting for a Djinn who claimed to embody mischief and deceit, but the Imuchakk still almost began to worry that the metal vessel on his left hand were merely a mirage that might fade away at any moment should he fail to pass future tests. Assuming of course that trials even could continue on outside of a dunge-

"Oof!"

Yakuroro had stepped onto the stairs still lost in his own mind and found the abrupt change in gravity to be quite the...trip. His footing on the stairs had changed as a result and led to the Imuchakk falling forward into the stairs. Rubbing the sore parts of his body that had been lightly hurt by this tumble, Yakuroro looked around and realized the gravitational adjustment they'd gone through. "Magic of the seventh type?" He muttered curiously to himself as he stood and advanced along the stairs further. By the time the ascent had ended and they were back on flat ground again, Yakuroro realized due to his fall that now was not the time to visit ones mind palace. There was unknown danger at every turn of this dungeon and the Imuchakk was beginning to respect that.

This allowed Yaku's focus to be on what was in front of him rather than what was at the front of his thoughts. The Imuchakk spotted the beastly figure as it emerged from the distance mist. "That door looks like the way forward...and it appears to have a guardian..." Yakuroro said as he readied his staff and held a hand out to let Akatetsu know to stay behind him. The werewolf was still rather far away and while it was approaching at a steady pace, it didn't seem like this needed to become a close range brawl. So long as the fight could take place at range, Yakuroro's magic would be a far superior choice of action. But patience was key to hitting a target. While Yakuroro had a spell with the range to strike the werewolf now, he did not know how fast the beast was or if it could see magic. Instead of being too hasty, the magician simply aimed his staff towards the creature and waited for it to get closer.

As Diego loosed his arrows, Yakuroro would keep his staff aimed towards the werewolf, watching the speed it made to dodge and keeping the act of aiming itself as an ever present state so as to not alert the beast when he was ready to cast a spell. Yakuroro would wait until the Werewolf came within roughly 20m of them before muttering a command to the rukh under his breath. "Resonance Wave..." A vibrating orb of magoi would be generated at the tip of his staff before flying through the air towards the monster at 25m/s. Hopefully Diego had finsihed firing all four of his arrows be this point so the were wolf didn't dodge what it couldn't see based on an attempt to dodge what it could.

"Gremory... That is a devastating magic. I would like to request my special blade for this battle. At the very least, these two foes will not be easy opponents. The large creature stroked its chin, thoughtfully, as it watched the short fight unfold before its eyes.

Gremory drummed his fingers on the chair. "Fair enough. You have permission." With a wave of his hand, the entire platform rumbled and shook. A large crashing sound echoed throughout the space that Gremory and Leongarddra existed within, yet that sound would not reach the candidates within the dungeon.

A rather large blade came flying from beneath the platform, to the side and straight into the air. The movements followed the Djinn's commands, which he accentuated through hand motions. With a sharp motion pointing towards the ground by Leongarddra's feet, the blade made a fast descent and lodged itself next to the creature. The blade and hilt, together, stood at 3 meters tall. "You haven't... Shortened the blade, have you? I dislike a weapon shorter than myself." Leogarddra tested the sword, swinging it a few times over. Gremory did not respond. The beast seemed satisfied, however, and did not push further.

The two continued to watch the events unfold before them.






The beast approached as Diego fired off his first arrow. It spun to the right and began running towards the group. The second arrow came forth, which it spun back to the left to avoid. Unfortunately for the beast, Diego had already anticipated its movements. The third arrow struck the beast's shoulder, yet it seemed to not dig too deeply into the body of the creature. When it noticed this, it did not bother to dodge the fourth arrow, allowing it to strike another part of its body with equal degree of effectiveness. It snarled, partially in delight, that neither of the two had posed it much of a challenge.

Yet its movements, shortly later, brought the creature within the distance Yakuroro was waiting for. Yakuroro's spell traveled through the air, and the werewolf did not have the opportunity to dodge it. The spell landed, immediately taking effect, which were almost as comical as they were horrendous. The creature sunk to the floor, as if it had suddenly become a puddle of goo. From various orifices it's internal matter, mostly liquified, began to leak from its body. The way to the entrance was clear...
