Chimera now realized the time for combat had passed, and would only take the time to answer the djinn's questions to the utmost honesty. The questions were quite simple, but they would have usually required a touch of tact to answer for the sensibilities of the average man, but to a divine being such as Buer, perhaps such things would only muddle her true intentions.

"I knew not to steal from the bears since I was certain it was a test, even before my companion had mediated the terms of our passing. However, I do regret killing the pixies. I had intended on sparing even the mantis men, but they were clearly past reason. I killed the pixies with my inexperience, I have never wielded any sort of magic tool before and I had only aimed to get rid of the remaining mantis, but the tools power exceeded my knowledge and expertise, which also answers my follow up questions. It was never my intention to kill any of them."

Chimera eyes focused on Buer's as she stood quietly for a moment, thinking of the best way to phrase the final question. "Before I answer the last question, I must give you some foundation. My companion has a tool to speak with foreign beasts, and has seemed pretty keen on using it. He had mediated with the bears, he attempted with the mantis, and he spoke with the pixies. Zadi has tried to spare us from as many battles as possible it seems. However, when Zadi and I met with the.... 'Spriggan' was it?" She recalled the aberration of roots that formed the semblance of a man, quite powerful. "Zadi, who had typically reserved himself to diplomacy, had committed to fighting, thankfully so. Therefore, I knew we must fight because I trusted in my ally. I can't imagine that we would have survived if we had let the ent and its hounds had taken the initiative."

She was always purposeful in her actions and decisions. Hopefully now that she explained herself, the djinn would see her own perspective in a better light.

Chimera and Zadi seemed to have sufficiently answered the first question that Buer threw at the pair, but that didn't stop the tension in the air, even as the bow lowered. The tension stayed for Zadi knowing that Buer still hadn't made up her mind about the two dungeoneers. When asking her next set of questions, Zadi could tell that Buer was unable to read thoughts. Why ask when you already know? Aside from honesty being key, there was not obvious reason to ask these questions with a neutral tone aside from the lack of information. Therefore, Zadi could tell that Buer knew half of what the two were thinking. Their actions being that very half, the other needed to be distinguished through the answers that Chimera and Zadi gave next. Chimera, for instance, made good on her part. Zadi liked the answers. However, now was Zadi's turn. Hopefully he wouldn't screw up with his tone and body language. Truth is key, but conveying it is difficult when tension is thick.

"As Chimera said, I have this charm here that allows me to communicate with foreign species as if them and I are speaking, hearing, and sometimes even seeing the same language. With that in mind and the bears not completely hostile, the two of us communicated and I found out that the bears treasured the golden figures. As a developing civilization, I thought it would be rude to steal. I also didn't wish to engage in combat, hehe."

"As for the pixies, Chimera explained it best from her view. I could also tell that she was putting her all into defeating the unreasonable mantis people. As the pixies were an accidental casualty, I felt it would be cruel to kill the rest as they didn't pose a direct threat. Thankfully they could, like the bears, be reasoned with and so didn't necessarily block our path."

"Your last question is difficult to answer, or at least tough to explain. From the previous experiences between the bear, mantis, and pixie people, I could tell that the root hounds were unwilling to reason. With the 'Spriggan' being the root hounds' master, as it seemed, I could further tell that reasoning was not possible. Sometimes battle is the only way to communicate feelings, though the Spriggan's continued onslaught didn't yield any positive communication either. At least not from our perspective."


Zadi talked a WHOLE lot with only small pauses in order to catch his breath. Zadi's body language attempted to stay neutral while his tone was monotone with a sprinkle of inflection defending on if the topic was lighthearted such as the mediation with the bears. However, body language and tone aside, hopefully Zadi's actual answer was 'good enough'.

Buer looked upon Chimera and Zadi in turn as they spoke, taking in their words. "I see. So you acted under the idea that you were being tested... While it feels a bit weird to hear that, this means that you have a decent amount of self control. And the honesty of your aims and what you did seem refreshing." The Djinn creaked her neck left and right, staring at Chimera for a small period of time with a look of contemplation. She spoke, revealing a shocking truth. "To be honest, I intended on kicking you out of my dungeon. You killed one of the Pixies, who did not show hostility towards you... Then you also concealed who had done the killing when the remaining pixies asked why it happened..."

Waving her hand towards her left, a rush of magoi and energy created a powerful orb. The field oozed the pressure of power. "Since you are already struggling to control the power you have recently gained, I do not believe it is appropriate to entrust my full strength to you. However, you mentioned sacrifice... Entering this magical field will temporarily disable your new tool. But in exchange, you will receive a new strength. One of the forest, though you will no longer be able to appear as a human any longer. Money is considered a form of power as well; you have my blessings to grab a bag or two. The choices are yours to make." She would wait for the two to make their decisions, and would then release a wave of power when they began gathering some of the gold; she would not let them take it all, afterall.

The wave of power enveloped the entire floor and entered their bodies, followed by their minds. It clouded their actions in the dungeon; only a few vague things could be recalled, such as them being in the forest and passing through challenges. While they failed to get the Djinn at the end, they were able to gather something for their efforts.

And Zadi was still able to recall the Torran texts he had seen on the walls.


OOC:

This is the last post. Please make your exit post. As mentioned in the post, you will not have a solid recollection of what took place within the dungeon with the exception of the acts of obtaining anything from the dungeon (including; the sights of the Torran words that Zadi came across, the gold, the ring Zadi has and the Dungeon Beast xform if Chimera chooses it).

If you guys pick up some gold, make sure to let me know OOC if you pay the taxes to the Balbadd government or not. I will not reward a player unless they say whether or not they are avoiding the payment of taxes. It does not cost you OOC Huang. There will be a 50k Huang reward for making it to the Chamber.


-Warning. Choosing one of the following will restrict you from using the item you bought from Zadi until you are at 3070 XP; 1000 xp from the time of this post-
Chimera, you are approved to obtain the Dungeon Beast form of this dungeon. You may choose one of the following:

Dungeon-Beast Transformations

  • Winged Being

    • Perks:

      • The player obtains a pair of wings, which provide the function to fly at 10 m/s.
      • The player loses disadvantages of their prior race.
      • The player may register 1 ability using the Intelligence guidelines based off of the theme of the dungeon. This ability takes up a secondary specialization ability slot, and follows the tier restrictions of that specialization.


    • Downsides:

      • The player can only jog at 3 m/s, run at 5 m/s and sprint at 7 m/s.
      • Face-claim must resemble whatever beast is being used.
      • The player loses advantages of their prior race.




  • Spriggan

    • Perks:

      • Missing limbs may be 'grown' back in the same manner that one would 'repair' a weapon.
      • A blow that would normally be fatal, such as a stab to the heart, would not be considered fatal. Except for the disadvantage listed below, the only way to completely kill a Spriggan is to bisect their head.
      • Loses all disadvantages of the prior race.


    • Downsides:

      • Must have the face-claim of a Spriggan.
      • Fire attacks, if they strike the Spriggan, are considered 1 tier stronger and automatically gain the 'burn' status effect of the same tier. B-Tier and higher burns deal C-tier damage instead of D-Tier, and spread .5 meters in all directions of the body. This may kill a Spriggan.
      • Loses all advantages of the prior race.

Chimera smirked as she heard the djinn's own brand of honesty. It was unfortunate that her lack of knowledge of her item was the reason for her failure. Despite wanting to obtain the djinn, perhaps this new strength would be better suited to her. Chimera wasn't one to have empty words, she knew the sacrifice would come with the bonus of new found power. Perhaps the sacrifice could be turned into a positive.

She stepped into the portal, as she felt the magic of the portal permeate through her powers altering her body  in an unimaginable way. The flowers beneath her grew in the aura of the magic, and wrapped around her ankles, as her body began to grow into a sort of amalgamation of nature; vines, bark, and flowers. Chimera looked to her palms, which were literally layered leaves, still having few distinct lines from how the leaves overlapped. Turning her forearms and wrist, seeing a layer of bark to protect her skin. Her senses remained intact such as hearing, sight and touch. Her new hands ran through her once silky hair, only to feel the roughness of her new hair. It was definitely wooden, but had a bit of leeway. Segmented vines, covered in bark.

She looked down her body, and noticed that her bosom filled out a lot more. After she was done being distracted by the resemblance of cleavage she noticed the outline of bark that contoured her body. It traced her spine, and covered her collar bone, lining down her chest, and beneath her ample breasts. Covering her abdomen, and lining her legs and joints, with a lot of leafy texture for her skin.

Chimera was interested in taking a gander at her face, but it would have to wait. She bowed to the djinn as she went to pick a bag of gold. She wanted to remember the situation, but she didn't have a writing utensil, perhaps she could use her body manipulation abilities. However, cheating Buer with written information seemed a bit unfair, but it was something to keep in mind for next time.

As she grabbed a bag of money, Buer's magic has teleported her out of the dungeon, with money in hand. She was a new person and vaguely recalled a few things of the dungeon, but she wanted to make sure to pay her taxes on the gold her had earned so she could keep her future with Balbaad intact.

OOC: Taking Spriggan. Paying taxes. Magic tool is sealed. Exitting.

The djinn was honest about her opinion concerning Chimera and Zadi. Zadi felt rather disheartened and frustrated that such a slip-up could have caused the two of them to be kicked out prematurely. Zadi thought about what HE could have done aside from 'not lying'. Perhaps not given Chimera the Light Bomb without testing it out himself? Worst of all, Zadi didn't know how to use it. His lack of interest in such a weak offensive item garnered him negative results. Thankfully, he learned from this and decided to test out tools before giving them away to another person. All the same though, the djinn was nice enough to let Zadi and Chimera not only live, but granted them more power. For Zadi, that meant money. For Chimera, power meant her strange new transformation. Something that Zadi hadn't seen before surprised and interested him greatly. She look like a feminine Spriggan...very feminine.

In the end, Zadi just took a bag of gold, left the dungeon with Chimera, and payed the taxes towards "Balbadd" knowing that said funds would inevitably be gambled away and "given" to the proper Balbadd in the future. Balbadd got "its" money, one way or another.

OOC: Paying taxes. Exiting.

[EXIT]
