Hohotaro; a young lad, hopes held strongly within his chest and a high degree of optimism with his chances in the dungeon. Solomon; a seemingly solemn man who exuded a sense of elegance and responsibility known by those who held a job of the night. This pair of Imuchakk, challenging the dungeon, soon found themselves sinking through the door they had just touched. The sensation of falling throughout a vast amount of space suddenly overtook the two. They were surrounded by a brilliant golden light; easy on the eyes, and simultaneously filling the tension in the air with a sense of excitement. Before they knew it they would find the golden light suddenly disappear, only to be replaced by a sight some may find even more beautiful than what they had just experienced.

The sight of a large blue orb, dotted with green. Many people, upon first seeing such a sight, would be filled with a sense of awe. Regardless of what the two Imuchakk initially felt, they would be able to note that the surrounding skies were filled with the light of stars.

The sphere before them spun. As it spun, lights that shot out into the sky moved as well; it seemed these lights originated from the surface of that object in the distance. As the light engulfed the two, the brightness blinded them and a buzzing sound was heard.

It was not long that the two found each other in such a state. The noise and the blindness faded, leaving only the sounds of birds in the background. The scent of flowers, trees and animals permeated the air around them. Their recovered senses showed them a scene of being in the center of a forest. A path seemed to head forward; it was not paved with stone, but rather packed dirt that one would find in a well-traveled forest trail. The path itself was rough as small rocks and sticks were scattered across it.

The thick canopy and low branches would make alternate means of travel tricky, but not impossible. The two Imuchakk men would find themselves in front of a split path. One continued onward; it was well-worn and traveled. The other was set off to the right and seemed to be rarely used. Just as they were able to consider the off-path, a squirrel came running through the bushes while being chased by a fox. The fox stopped chasing it ten meters short of Hohotaro and Solomon; it seemed it would only stop for a few seconds, and would shortly bolt away from them.

"Woah! This is so cool! Whoooohooo!" Hohotaro is really enjoying the inside of the dungeon. He don't know what the spinning blue orb is but he thinks that it's very beautiful specially the stars that surround everything like a clear cloudless sky. He was actually kinda sad when he found himself standing on solid ground with the sound and scent of the forest permeated around him.

"That was awesome can we do that again?!" Hohotaro exclaimed stretches his arms out into the sky.

Hohotaro looked around and he was amazed by the majesty of the forest. Hohotaro never seen something like this before he just see some group trees in the plains and his home Imuchakk but never where the trees occupies most of the landscape.

He steps forward and he was surprised by a sudden appearance of a little creature that was followed by what looks like a wolf but small and red and incredibly adorable. Hohotaro reaches for a dried meat in his pack and offered it to the fox but it bolted away from them leaving a disappointed Hohotaro. He than stands up bite on the dried meat himself and looked at Solomon.

"What do you think Mon are you feeling adventurous?" Hohotaro  still chewing on the dried meat in his mouth, points at the direction with his thumb where the fox runs off to, the path with thick canopy and low branches. "Should we follow the cute mini red wolf and take the more scenic route?"

Solomon was first surprised by the golden light that surrounded them but that surprise immediately turned to excitement then to awe as he viewed the large blue orb, dotted with green in front of them. He couldn't fathom where they were taken or how there could be such a place inside the ancient tree, before he could walk around to look at the wondrous place he was then blinded by bright light to only open his eyes finding himself yet again somewhere else, he would look around and behind himself in amazement, "What his going onnnn?" he would question himself.

He would notice the forest around him, he would look at the beauty of it and look to how Hohotaro reacted as well, only to see him chewing on dried meat. "You may want to get rid of that as we are in nature something may be drawn to it if not properly stored." Solomon watched the fox run as well and noted its direction, he loved many beasts but he also knew there were some to be feared. "That is a fox, I have learned of that beast through the locals of Reim...but yes lets take our time to enjoy the views of this mystical place, we will probably not have the opportunity to view such a wonder again." they would then travel down the path with the low branches shoving them out of the way as Solomon did not wish to disturb or destroy such nature that has yet to be affected by men, or so he thought that and he had no reason to do so. He would have Hohotaro travel in front of him slightly as he was shorter then Solomon which would make it easier for him to travel if he did not have to wait for Solomon to move around all the branches.

Hohotaro and Solomon would both find the trail to be a difficult one. Moving across the less traveled path, often times they would find themselves having to go around or over large trees that had naturally fallen. The difficulty of moving through the path would be ranked as the highest, without monsterous opposition, as the winding and turning of the forest's path brought them across hard ground to follow. Eventually they found themselves at a stream of water; many animals, such as deer, foxes, squirrels and even monkeys, were resting and drinking at the river. There were also plenty of freshwater fish, and it seemed like there was a bear further down the river slapping them onto the shore.

Stones within the river that broke up its path would allow them to move across without worry of being caught in the rapids; though for Imuchakk such as themselves, such a thing would not be worrisome for them even if they did get caught in the rapids. These waters would be nothing compared to what they were used to, back home in their own lands.

Even with all of these twists and turns, the fatigue would only be light. Not only were the men who were moving across the ground of Imuchakk decent, naturally muscular and filled with the vitality of stamina, but they were trained warriors both. Fairly equally they had developed their own personal vitality. But the trails would continue.

OOC:

Feel free to interact with your surroundings at any point in time. You are welcome to hunt if that is your character's desire. I may be providing information about the later paths you guys could be taking, but feel free to insert anything you guys want to do as well ^_^. Any hunting or foraging for plants and the like would be considered successful, unless you attack the bear; then I will rp that part out.

Hohotaro was not even out of breath after the hike he's just amazed with the magnificence of the jungle around him. When they reached the clearing with a stream of water he immediately wanted to take a dip to relax and recuperate.

"So Mon, what do you say? Shall we rest here for a while?" Without even waiting for Solomon's reply Hohotaro strips down and expertly dives with no splashes into the water then appearing floating on his back.

"Oh Fishies!" Hohotaro sees a school of freshwater fish splashing around underwater. He grabbed one and throws it at the bank. Then he grabbed another and another. After a while Hohotaro have a small pile of Fish on the river bank.

"Hah~ That was refreshing." Hohotaro collects his fish using a wide banana leaf and wrapped it around. He put his pants back on and sat a little ways away the bank and collected some dried leaves and started making a small fire.

Coming out of the winding path of trees and difficult terrain you could see a smile on Solomon face even as he exited as in Imu it would never happen to cross such a terrain of nature and trees. Coming out into a clearing Solomon could see a stream, it looked so refreshing obviously to Hohotaro as well as he didn't even wait for a reply from Solomon before diving in as he started to say, "We should take the time to relax and remove any fatigue we may have before we come into contact with something dangerous.", he would watch as he tossed fish out of the river and picked up the occasional one and shoved it into his pack. He would do quite obviously so it wasn't as if he was stealing it, he was storing some for later as it might come in handy for the both of them. He would then shove his pack to the side as he would dive in with him to assist with the fishing, as he dove into the water and came up he saw the bear in the distance and smiled before diving back down assisting with the fish.

Solomon coming out of the water with Hohotaro, "I agree it was quite refreshing, I wish there was more places like this around Imu." you could see that Solomon had caught just as many fish as Hohotaro but he also split the pile in half, he would wrap the ones he had previously put in his bag in banana leaf so it wouldn't make a mess in his pack, and the one half in banana leaf as well, he would leave the rest out as he would cook it in the fire Hohotaro created to eat for the both of them, this would at least get some sort of food in there belly for the journey and as they ate they would converse with small talk about the goals and direction after the dungeon, but Solomon would also keep an eye on the direction that the bear was as he knew that most beasts of that size would attack based solely on territory and threat.

After cooking all the fish and getting some warmth and comfort by the fire he would put it out before continuing and would set the half of fish he collected in the banana leaf close to where the bear was previously as to feed it, Solomon loved animals but he understood greatly about the food chain and if he was seen he may be attacked so he would not get too close or within view of the bear as he dropped it, then would return back to Hohtaru. "Lets continue onward, we can enjoy the beauty of the vast place as we travel." He looked forward to traveling and seeing what more this place had to offer, he would start by the stream in search of another path they could possibly take.

As Solomon searches for another path they could take Hohotaro watches the wildlife around them. He notes what berries and fruits the animals are eating and takes some for himself. He put aside the berries in his little pouch to save for later.

"Oh this one is sweet." Hohotare eats one of the berries. "Mon do you want some? I have a lot here. I don't know if they're poisonous but... the animals around here seems to like them so I guess it's fine haha!" Hohotaro laughs as he pops another berry in his mouth.

Hohotaro likes animals, actually he plans to have a pet, probably in the near future. So as they move forward whenever there are birds or monkey that approaches, Hohotaro absentmindedly give them berries and fruits.

Though Solomon would see the bear looking in their direction, on occasion, the creature never approached them, instead staying its distance. Strangely enough, after it had caught a decent amount of fish, it placed them into a picnic basket, before passing it over to a much smaller bear who did its best to hold the thing. Aside from that, their own fishing and foraging would prove to be fulfilling and fruitful. The two would find the fish quite delicious after having cooked them, even without the need of seasoning their catch. The feel of the water was certainly fresh and cleansing, as well. The berries felt as if they restored lost stamina, rejuvenating the two from their walk so far throughout the woods. Hohotaro and Solomon would soon find themselves moving forward without any harassment from the local creatures...

The path continued to wind about, left and right, and felt like it would continue to go on for some time more. Just as the feeling of monotony was about to take hold, there existed a strange scent throughout the air. It was a somewhat sweet, yet soft scent that was a stark contrast to the general smell of the forest to this point. An almost inviting scent, to be truthful. Their continued trek would have them arrive at a opening in the canopy, underneath of which existed a large field of an array of flowers. Butterflies, bumble bees and a few other insects seemed to flutter and buzz about their busy lives.

There was still more path to follow, even if the flowers seemed inviting to admire...

OOC:

Keep in mind that each participant is supposed to only get 1 post between proxy posts, lol. I don't mind the last one, because it made a bit of sense for Solomon to react before you just up and left, but try to avoid that if possible.

"I don't understand what's so bad about dungeons." Hohotaro wonders as he follows Solomon towards the winding path deeper inside the forest. "I mean... Look at this place. Everything is so beautiful and so peaceful. If there's no treasure on the end of this road I might be tempted to just live here." Hohotaro continues to admire everything around him.

"Maybe I can take Ruririko and Kirara here. I'm sure they would love it." Hohotaro reminisce about his sister and his friend back in Imuchakk. Hohotaro shakes the thought out of his head when he remembers that this is still a dungeon. A dangerous place that is infamous all around the world and he would not want to put his little sister in danger no matter how beautiful this place is. Remembering this Hohotaro became uncharacteristically cautious.

After a while Hohotaro and Solomon is welcomed by a sweet smell in stark contrast of the earthy smell of the forest. They continued forward and they left the canopy of leaves and was now in front of a field full of flowers.

Hohotaro looks around him. If he see the animals follow him through the field of flowers he would stop and admire the scene. But if the animals became cautious and refused to enter the field Hohotaro would become suspicious and will try to cover his nose and mouth and hold his breath until they are out of the field of flowers.

Eating some of the berries as he traveled through the brush which he found quite delicious but he would not eat many as he was already quite full and refreshed from the fish. And as they both traveled forward he eventually caught wift of something sweet it smelt almost like that of nectar, they would come out to see what he had smelled which was a wide field of flowers he could see the different bugs that were pollinating the flowers, he immediately wished to go over and pick some of the flowers for later, they would be good use for some of the men and women he might meet due to work, but he noticed that Hohotaro was being quite cautious and it looked as if he were holding his breath, so Solomon would do the same but he would be somewhat playful as he would then push Hohotaro as they traveled further into a bed of flowers, then run for the end of the flowers.

If he noticed anything wrong he would immediately stop to assist Hohotaru but if not he would wait at the end patiently smiling and waving, as he would watch a rabbit near by.

There were no animals that followed Hohotaro through the field of flowers. In fact, there were no animals strictly following them; after they had left the river, most creatures tended to stay away from each other unless one was hunting another. Solomon picked some of the flowers without consequence; there was no sudden rush of bees or anything of the sort. As they continued to pass by the peaceful scene, Solomon would attempt to push Hohotaro into the field of flowers. If he fell, he would find that no harm became of it.


As they continued to walk through the forest, their feet would put the two back onto a familiar track. The scenery was once again similar to the one they had experienced in the beginning, before they had chosen the split that brought them to where they currently were. Before long, however, another opening in the scene before them appeared. This time, there was a winding road that moved forward and split to the left which lead into a village, and the right which lead behind a hill. From their point, they could just make out the sight of some clothed people digging, and a pile of bodies covered in fur clothing lying on the ground, motionless.

Hohotaro wasn't expecting the push from behind and fell flat on his face among the flower bed. Hohotaro lifts up his head with a mouthful of flowers and a face full of dirt. "That stupid Mon-key..." Hohotaro mumbles.

Hohotaro charge towards the stupidly smiling and waving Solomon that is watching a stupid bunny across the stupid flower field. Hohotaro jumps in an attempt to do a flying kick to Solomon.

If he dodged the kick. Hohotaro would hit face first hugging a tree nearby and say. "I just looove nature." as he slips downward.

On the next few moments Hohotaro is focused on hatching a devious plan to get back at Solomon. But after a long walk with nothing exciting happening the rage soon dissipate and would be replaced with boredom.

"Are we there yet? I think I've seen that tree before." Hohotaro walks beside the tree and points at a wet spot on the base of the tree. "See? I've already marked this spot."

And indeed it was the same place that they were before but this time Hohotaro sees a new path winding behind a hill. "Hey Mon have you seen that path before? Do you think we should go there? Yeah we should go there."

As they walked closer to the newly discovered path Hohotaro also sees a group of people with shovels seemingly burying their dead. There was a split second where Hohotaro was overcome with sympathy but it soon turned to excitement for seeing new people after a long walk of nothing but tree and dirt and a muscular Imu escort as company.

"Hey Mon. Do you see that? Those are people right? People Mon! People!" Hohotaro shakes Solomon with a crazy look in his eyes and shoved him aside trying to shout at the guys with the shovel. "Hey you guys~~!"

Solomon would crouch down to take a closer look at the bunny, somehow luckily evading the incoming kick from Hohotaro, then laughing at him as he hit the tree. "Are we where yet?" Solomon replied Confused, "we have no idea where we are or where we are going." he laughed "see, as I said we have no idea where were going." he would say as Hohotaro pointed out that they back tracked.

Solomon shrugged as he was asked, "Sure why not, lets explore as much of this place as we can, maybe we will find something valuable or something wondrous." Solomon would see a village appear as the walked forward and then some clothed people digging, "hmmm.... we shou..." he began to say being interrupted by Hohotaro, but then would immediately shove Hohotaro's head into the ground as he noticed him shouting out to the crowd of people.
If he successfully did so without grabbing the attention of them he would say, "As I was about to say, we should get a closer look without being spotted, how many villages do people know of that would be found in a dungeon that has been told to many is very dangerous."

They would then attempt to get closer with any cover they could find.

The people looked towards Hohotaro and Solomon after the formed yelled out to the diggers. Immediately, the two who were digging dropped their shovels and ran in-doors. Even though Solomon had attempted to quickly hide the actions of the contender, covering for the man with what Solomon may have thought of as folly, the damage had already been done. A flurry of activity was seen from the village; a ray of light reflected off of some sort of metallic object. More rays of light began shining off as a number of people gathered in the center of the village and ended up moving to the edge of it. As they approached closer both Hohotaro and Solomon would be able to see that they were not people at all; they were Bear-men. Bipedal bears, equipped with both armor and weapons. Some had swords, others had war-hammers, and some had axes.

They formed a concave semi-circle at the entrance of their village, as if blocking Hohotaro and Solomon's free reign of passage. A larger bear and smaller bear stepped forward, and the entirety prepared themselves for battle in case of any hostile movements from the contender and companion. The larger bear seemed to be some sort of warrior, whereas the smaller bear looked to be capable of magic. They watched the two stoically.

"Hey you- oomph" Hohotaro for the second time in this dungeon kisses the dirt yet again. He flailed around till Solomon released him. "Hey what's the big idea!" Hohotaro heard the shovels fall and see the people run inside and Hohotaro was blinded by the ray of light from the armor of the people that comes out of the village forming a barricade in front of the entrance trying to protect it.

"Now look at what you did... You spooked them." Hohotaro dusts himself and stood up cautiously walking towards the group of people with hands up trying to show an act of pacifism. Hohotaro speaks in a semi loud but calming voice. "It's ok! I'm Hohotaro. We meant no harm."

As Hohotaro moves closer towards the people he noticed something is strange. Just then he realized that they are not human but bears with armors and clothes. Hohotaro was stopped in his tracks with this strange sight.

"Uhm Mon. I think they are bears." Hohotaro looks towards the bears again to examine them better and notes the tools and weapons they are holding. "Yeap they are bears. But not just ordinary bears, They seem..." Hohotaro paused for dramatic effect and stares directly at Solomon's eyes for exactly 5 seconds before saying. "Smarter than an average bear."

Hohotaro is a little scared but he tries not to show it. He just fought a bear on the plains and he had a hard time beating it. And that bear is naked and bluntly speaking, it's stupid. Compared to this seemingly intelligent armored bears with weapons and shields and everything, Hohotaro would like to not be on the bears' bad side.

Hohotaro closed his eyes coughs and puts on his best serious face before he turns toward Solomon saying. "Imuchakks are hunters. But we only hunt what we need." he puts his right hand on Solomon's left shoulder. "There is no need for us to antagonize these majestic creatures." he then gestures at the motionless and lifeless bears on the ground with his other hand. "It's clear that they are in mourning." Hohotaro clenched his left fist and put it on his chest looked away and closed his eyes dramatically. "Those that shows respect to the dead also have my respect." Hohotaro put both hands on Solomon's shoulder and look straight at his eyes. "What say you brother? Let us leave these creatures be and follow the path where there will be no more bloodshed and suffering."

Hohotaro turned his back from Solomon and smiles satisfied with the little speech he gave Solomon. Two bears steps forward. Hohotaro thinks he recognize them, he seems remembers them by the river fishing earlier but naked. This gave Hohotaro an idea.

Hohotaro takes out the fish inside his pack that is bundled with banana leaves. He put it on the palm of his hand and walk closer to the bears but not close enough to make his movement feel hostile. He then put the bundle on the ground and opened it up showing fresh fish. He picks up one and lifted it to show the bears and put it back in the bundle. He did this out of sympathy for the bears' loss, it may not bring the dead back but... well... they're bears they might like fish...

Assuming that there is no attack from the bears. Hohotaro stands up and walked backwards a few steps before turning and following the other path that leads behind a hill. "Mon... should we hunt again? I think I'm in a mood for some barbecue."

Solomon could only shake his head and face palm himself at Hohotaro's actions, "yep there bears.." he twisted his head slightly as he looked onto the sight of an interesting creature. He was very much interested in getting a closer look at them, and their village but by the looks of it they were not too friendly to guests.

"hmm I guess we can leave them alone, as long as they don't come after us, and we can check the other path but if its a dead end we will have to pass through their village somehow." Solomon was quite surprised by what Hohotaro had said as he has not acted that way before, at least not in front of him. "If we have to come back though we have to choices, either you go talk to them and see if they try to kill you, or we go threw them. I understand loss, and they may be more intelligent bears but it does not mean they have lost their trait of being territorial, never underestimate nature and the creatures within it." He would keep a close eye on the bears as they backed up to take the other path to see where it lead, he would remain cautious and alert of his surroundings in case of a attack.

The bear-men were certainly suspicious of Hohotaro's actions, and watched him carefully as he approached with the food. As he lay it down, they did not move an inch and instead simply continued to watch. Even after Hohotaro backed away from them, they did not move forward to check the food itself and left it sitting there. After a second thought, Hohotaro would have the opportunity of realizing that these two bears were not the same ones he had seen at the river; one bear was certainly smaller than the other, but both bears were over a meter tall. Back at the river, there was a bear that was easily over a meter tall but the other bear was certainly shorter, like a child.

The contender and companion, Hohotaro and Solomon, continued exploring without allowing the setback to deter them in any manner. Continuing around the hill they would slowly make their way up a set of stairs that were, at first, hidden from their view. At the top of these stairs was a portal that looked similar to the one from the entrance; it would likely lead them to the next room. If the two looked out across the scenery, they would be able to see the route to their right that they had come from, and it looked like there was another road beyond the bear's village that lead into the forest as well.

Hohotaro saw that the bears are very cautious and ignoring the fish he laid out for them. After he got a longer look at the two bears he noticed that it was actually not the bears he saw by the river. The smaller bear by the river is smaller and seems to be like a child.

Before Hohotaro continue on towards the winding path he took back his bundle of fish. "Well it's your loss, it will surely be a waste if I leave it here and these guys are not going to take it." Hohotaro mumbles as he placed the bundle back in his pack and walk slowly backwards cautiously before turning and continuing towards the winding path.

Hohotaro and Solomon reached the end of the path and what they see is a portal like device like the one they entered from. Hohotaro looked out to the scenery and sees a village at a distance with a path going towards the forest. 

"Mon. Want to hike over there? Haha!" Hohotaro laughs. "Just kidding!" Hohotaro thinks that he don't want to disturb the bears anymore than they did. They seem to have a lot of bad experience on dungeoneers to make them that cautious. Even refusing free food, that is inconceivable for Hohotaro.

"Should we enter the portal? If its like the one by the gate then all we have to do is touch it." Hohotaro reached out his hand and touches the portal. "I hope it'll be like the last one that was awesome haha!"

View user profile
Solomon watched as Hohotaro grabbed the fish back that he had offered to them then looked at him awkwardly when he noticed him watching and gestured a motion of why, then shaking his head he would reply to him, " I think we should avoid the bears at the moment if we can." As Hohotaro was beginning to ask if they should enter Solomon did not even wait for him to get through his first words before dashing past him jumping into the portal. He remembered what the last one was like with the amazing lights and the ability to teleport them elsewhere, he did enjoy where he was last but the curiosity excited him to see where the next portal may take them. You would be able to see that Solomon could barely contain the smile on his face, he couldn't wait to see the scenery it would supply him with and the other creatures he may face.

Hohotaro and Solomon; the Imuchakk duo. As they touched the gate their sight suddenly encountered a haze as the bright and vibrant colors of the forest drained away. The haze jumbled everything up, and produced a sense of vertigo within those who witnessed it. The sight of the Main Hall faded away, instead replaced with something rougher and darker than what they had been exploring up to this point. Before they knew it, the two Imuchakk would find themselves standing in an almost completely different environment.

The Midway

The "room" they were in was quite dark, but a faint glow permeated throughout the location. As their eyes grew accustomed to this new environment, they would take note of the multitude of roots that spread from one side to another, back and forth, and even reached down... beneath a body of water. The reason they could see so well? This was undoubtedly attributed to the glow of the luminescent moss, illuminating the room much better than the fireflies floating about the air ever could.

The body of water was a clear river which ran across the base of the wooden ground. It was deep; too deep to see the bottom of. Yet, at the same time, the waters were incredibly calm, though it seemed to be flowing. The surroundings would soon be recognized as that of a giant structure of roots, likely from a humongous tree. Atop of one such root structure were several home-looking structures standing upon stilts. Though these buildings seemed well maintained, there was not a single movement in sight; no sign at all of the owners of the homes.

There was instead a certain tension which began to slowly build upon the silence of the room. An eerie sense began to prey upon the two, as if eyes were boring into the back of their skulls, a weight and pressure unlike anything they experienced in the first room was leveled towards them here. There was a stairway to their right that could lead upwards, if they wished to take that route and investigate the buildings on stilts. Otherwise, they could choose to take a dip in the water or try other novel means of exploring this underground expanse.

The beautiful scenery seems to fade in front of Hohotaro and it was replaced by a dark and dank environment. Hohotaro is visibly disappointed with the portal, he have hoped for a more visceral and exciting transition but all he got was a very basic fade in and fade out.

"Well... that was disappointing." Hohotaro said as he looks around the new scenery before him. "I had hoped for a more boom and woosh and vrrrrrr." Hohotaro looks down and shakes his head. "Anyway! What's that..." Hohotaro crouch down to a glowing  plant on the ground. He poked it and his eyes widened. "It's not hot but it produced light. What kind of magic is this."

Hohotaro gathers some luminescent moss around him and started covering himself with it until he looks like a glowing swamp monster. "Hey Mon look!" Hohotaro taps Solomon "Can't you say that I have a glowing personality?" Hohotaro points at Solomon with both his hands with and arching one of his eyebrow. "Ehhh? ehhhhh?"

Hohotaro keeps the glowing moss on him and started looking around the place they appeared. Hohotaro sensed something looking at him but he can't seem to figure out where the feeling is coming from. "Hey Mon... Do you have a feeling that something is clearly into us? Like they want to get to know us if you know what I mean." Hohotaro looks at Solomon knowingly.

"Anyway... are you hungry? All that walking makes me a little peckish haha." Hohotaro laughs as he sets up camp just beside the calm river. Hohotaro tries to look what's in the river to see if there are any fish in it. He can't see anything, he doesn't know if it's just dark or there are really no fish in there.

"Oh I know!" Hohotaro have a fun idea. Hohotaro took a stone as large as his fist and covered it with moss completely and carefully dropped it in the river careful on not disturbing the surface too much. Hohotaro stares at the stone excitedly to see what happens with it, if it reach the bottom or maybe see some fishes in there. If nothing happens and the stone just disappears covered in darkness Hohotaro would get bored and move on.

Hohotaro put his pack aside and took out his bundle of fish. "Hey Mon do you want some of this?" Hohotaro started the fire and cooks fish on a stick.

"Hmmm interesting" Solomon would say as he looked around coming out of the portal, it took a moment for his eyes to adjust. "I was expecting something a little more bright... I guess." Even though that is what he said, he still would admire the new surroundings around him and the glowing plants, at least he would admire what he could see. Solomon would let out a quiet laugh as he watched Hohotaro playing with the plant, "Just because it gives off light does not mean it is because of magic, like fireflies and such."

"Many things could be watching us, and it would be too dark to spot them out at a distance, but you have a good idea lets just take light with us everywhere, yea it makes us easier to spot... but things that live in this area are probably use to looking into the darkness." He would then go find a piece of his own and wrap it around his waist, before following Hohotaro to the river where he would begin to set up camp, "Do you think it would not be better to set up camp somewhere with a little more light or at least coverage so nothing can pop out at us?" As Hohotaro went to the river Solomon laughed as he pulled out some fish from earlier that he packed away, he would begin to cook the fish without Hohotaro noticing right away. After cooking enough for himself and for Hohotaro he would then cook three more then toss them as far as he could the way they came from and in two other directions as far as he could. He would hope this would appease what ever may be around them. This would allow Hohotaro to save the fish he had caught from earlier as well, he believed it would be a good idea to have enough food to get through the entire dungeon with.

Hohotaro would find the task of gathering the moss to have been fairly easy. The large moss-covered stone struck the water, causing ripples to appear and disperse. The weight of it caused them to be rather large, however the sight of the light illuminating the depths would detract from the sight of the ripples. There seemed to be holes, or perhaps tunnels would be a more appropriate description, nearing the bottom of the water.

The scent of cooking would permeate in the air, giving Hohotaro an idea that something was happening close by. Before he knew what was happening, however, a cooked fish went flying above his head and splashed into the water. The only logical person to have been capable of the feat was Solomon. Unlike the stone, when the fish struck the water there came a loud rushing sound. As if it were being sucked up, the water was draining at an incredible rate; if Hohotaro looked, he would be able to see vortexes coming from the holes, making them the apparent cause of this.

The whole thing was over in a flash, before either of them would have a chance to truly jump in and swim towards the vortex (though they would be able to jump in and swim for a short while). In the distance, approximately 60 meters ahead, a portal appeared; it was very similar to the portal they had seen when they had been warped to their current location... But it was located beyond two sets of homes on stilts that sat atop branches.

Furthermore, the holes seemed to emit an ominous pressure. Traversing the newly-formed ravine, or following the wooden stairs to the stilted homes would be the two predominant choices available...

Hohotaro dropped the glowing rock and he saw the tunnels under the water that looked really promising. While looking at the river he shouted for Solomon. "Hey Mon! I found tunnels! Let us go for a swim and look whats inside after we finish eating." He smelled something nice coming from behind him. He turned around and see a fish sailing over his head. Hohotaro tries to grab it in mid air but he missed and the fish plops right into the river.

The place starts to shake and Hohotaro hears like a draining sound. "Oh no! Oh no! The earth god is angry I waste food! Mon! Help!" Hohotaro looked at the river and there is a vortex coming from the holes he saw earlier. "What is happening! Now the river god is angry!" Hohotaro didn't have much time to panic till the river becomes completely dry and turned into a ravine.

After everything calmed down Hohotaro looked around and tried to get back his composure. "Heh can you believe that? That's just acting. That's what would happen if you're with someone that is not as manly as I am." Hohotaro slaps his chest and let out a tiny roar. He then grabbed his pack and some cooked fish Solomon prepared and started eating.

"Well that settles it. There is no fish in this river." Hohotaro looks down at the holes from earlier. He feels nothing, well maybe he feels a little bit of excitement on what new things he can see in those tunnels.

Hohotaro slides down the ravine careful that his glowing swamp monster suit wouldn't get ruined too much. He looks up and wonders why Solomon wasn't coming with him. By then Hohotaro had the time to really look around the area and about 60m from where he was before there appears a portal that looks like the one they just went in located behind some huts in stilts.

Hohotaro slaps his palm on his forehead. "Well I guess we're gonna have another adventure..." Hohotaro shouts at Solomon. "Quick Mon! Come down here! I found treasure!" Hohotaro lies to try to make Solomon follow him down the ravine. "And there are gorgeous ladies! Quickly or I'll have to take them all for myself! Treasures and Ladies Mon! It's a paradise down here!" Hohotaro continues the charade. "Oh ladies please I'm only just one man!"

After a while Hohotaro thinks he tempted Solomon enough he continues exploring the ravine. While eating the fish Mon gave him, Hohotaro wanders towards the hole where the vortex originated. Hohotaro went inside the tunnel and started exploring with the help of the light that's coming from his glowing swamp monster outfit. "Well... I hope there are no monsters in here."

Solomon stood and walked over to the river edge as Hohotaro went on about some river god, he would listen to him talk and boast about being a man and acting, but Solomon acted on a daily basis being a male escort, so he would be able to tell that Hohotaro was not acting. He would watch as Hohotaro slide down the ravine, he would hesitate as all the water just disappeared to somewhere it could easily come back or something could be in the holes, something of some sort had to make them he thought.

Solomon could hear as Hohotaro tried to convince him to come down and he knew there was no possible way their would be women down there but treasure there was a possible chance, but he would after a minute or so passed when Hohotaro entered the tunnel head downwards mostly just to make sure he was ok especially as he was there to assist him in finding treasure. But he definitely did not get a good vibe from the tunnels they were entering.
