002 | Tokyo In Trouble

Who: Everyone!
What: Surprise! There's a disaster on the Near Shore.
When: Late at night (February 24, 2016) into mid-afternoon (February 25, 2016)
Where: The Meeting Hall of the Heavens AND various places around Tokyo
Summary: A nice little greeting for the new guests and an unpleasant surprise for the older ones~

A sudden, loud blast of noise persists throughout the entirety of the Heavens. It sounds much like a war horn of ancient times being played at a decibel that is meant to shake the very core of every being within its range. No matter how much you might try to block out the noise, it remains ringing in your ears deafeningly, and somehow you find yourself compelled towards the Meeting Hall - the place where you were first introduced to the Heavens and what you have gotten wrapped up in.

Anyone checking their phones will notice a large, bright red alert flashing at them - 'EMERGENCY! REPORT IMMEDIATELY!' It seems that the Heavens have taken to using modern technology for their messages as well.

Once you have reached the Meeting Hall, you will find that every wall has turned into a sort of television screen, displaying various streets and buildings in Tokyo, everyone one literally crawling with ayakashi both big and small. A voice that you recognize as Amaterasu's - though you would never be able to describe it properly - rings throughout the halls.

"We need your help, brave gods, loyal shinki. A rift the likes of which we have never dealt with has opened on the Near Shore. We must end the ayakashi who are harming our dear followers. Please come to our aid in this time of need."

Meeting Hall

The once garishly decorated Meeting Hall looks very much like the base of operations for an army at war. There are gods gearing up with shinki and man-made gear as well and plenty of gods and shinki saying prayers before they head out to battle. Everything you might need to make yourself feel safe during a fight has been provided, including every type of weaponry. But, of course, only shinki wielded by a god can actually destroy an ayakashi.


In the main hallway, there is an innocuous door with a small, nicely written sign that reads "Gentle Counselling". Inside the door is a small room with a few sweetly smiling shinki inside who are willing to listen to your problems and answer any questions you might have. They are also here to help out any gods that are having a hard time dealing with knowing about how their shinki died and any shinki that is having trouble coming to terms with the fact that they are dead.

February 24

The rift that has opened is so vast that there is literally nowhere in Tokyo that you can go without encountering a rampaging group of ayakashi. Everything is utter chaos and there are creatures everywhere for you to fight. Let's just hope that you can get out of this dangerous battlefront mostly unscathed.

February 25

Towards the middle of the day, it will seem that the ayakashi are becoming fewer and further between. Things seem to be calming down a lot, though they are nowhere near normal yet, especially since the rift is taking longer to close than the Heavens would like. Fortunately, no new ayakashi have escaped into the Near Shore from the rift since this morning, due to a barrier that has been placed around it. Still, the ayakashi seem to be really hell-bent on getting away from you all now rather than fighting...

In Summary:
  • There are a ton of ayakashi on the Near Shore that need to be destroyed.
  • The newbies are getting one hell of a welcome as a result.
  • Seek counselling if you need it!
  • Go kick some evil ass.
  • Comment to the first thread to get a randomly generated number of ayakashi to face.
  • Mods will gladly play out any ayakashi interactions where requested.
  • Try not to get killed~

[Gintoki, the brave soul that he was, turns just in time to see the dragon --

Just in time to fling himself to the ground, cover his head with his arms, and let out a shriek that shouldn't have come from a grown man.

And he'll stay there, even when the dragon is past him.

. . . he may not even get up. He definitely didn't want to.]

[Once he's made sure the ayakashi's been KO'd, Yuya returns to Gintoki's side to examine him. The dragon tilts its head side to side, obviously confused, before Yuya leans his head down to nudge Gintoki's shoulder with his snout. (Although he's careful not to poke him with the sharp tip.)]

Hey, are you okay? Helloooo? [Hopefully he didn't just kill a god by scaring him to death. Is that even possible?]

[He's fine. He might have gotten the pee scared out of him, but he's fine.

Nope, looks like things are high and dry. He'll sit up, only to half scoot/half crabwalk away from the dragon. ]

Hnn -- hey? Oi, do you phantoms talk too? Or maybe you're something else?

[Everything is monsters.]
ridethathippo: (Peace out!)

[Ewwww, no dragon-ride for Gintoki then.]

Huh? --Oh. Nope, I'm not one of those. I'm a shinki! This is my 'weapon' form....Heh, although I'm not much of weapon, right?

[Yuya shoots the man a big smile. An attempt to seem friendly.....................]

pachintoki: (what's wrong with you)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-04-05 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah-aah, I . . . okay, so you're a shinki? Whose?

Uhhhhh you're more than enough for a weapon. You're a giant dragon, you know? That's good enough for Dr*gonball.

[He'll stand up and dust himself off, tapping one foot on the ground to fix a boot.]

So you can kill these monsters just fine, then?
