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~

Feb 24th!

N-no thank-you!

[He'll freeze, but then he's totally not listening. Yeah, the only thing scarier than these mutant phantoms is probably this crazy woman with a gun. So he'll turn around, about to run away until he crashes head on into the ayakashi.

He'll fall on his butt, but then he's wildly swinging a wooden stick - high tech weapon - so the thing doesn't try and eat him, huge mouth hovering ominously.

Watch him get eaten Bishamon? Y/N? ]
dominatriarch: ([!!] | Help me to see again)

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-03-23 12:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Of course not! She didn't come out here to see the newer gods get eaten up by ayakashi. Not on her watch! She'll give chase of course but it'll take her a while to catch up to him.

Until then, be satisfied with a lion suddenly coming around and pulling you onto his back so he can drag you to safety... or at least away from the ayakashi about to turn you into lunch. ]
pachintoki: (hnnnmmh)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-03-24 05:08 pm (UTC)(link)
[a lion?? Seriously, who had a lion?? What was up with these gods? He definitely wasn't a god.

but. . .maybe, could he get a lion too. . .

Okay, no, Gin-san, focus, there's danger around. He'll pull himself up on the lion so it doesn't have to work as hard, letting it do it's cool lion-y thing and save him. What if he gave it a pat? Was that okay?

He'll give it a few pats. Yeah, he really wanted a lion.]

Thanks, lion-san.
dominatriarch: ([...] | I want you to make me)

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-03-26 12:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[ At that, Kuraha will just head to the nearest rooftop and set Gin down away from the rabid ayakashi. That should be enough for now.

He'll nod back and take a step back as his master finally catches up to them. This time, the pistol has been put away and she now has a giant sword resting on her shoulders as she approaches. ]

Good save, Kuraha.

[ She'll turn her attention to Gin now, evidently less threatening (?) than earlier. ]

Are you alright?
pachintoki: (okay everyone)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-03-26 05:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's pretty easy to be less threatening when you aren't pointing weapons at people, Bishamon, though the giant sword isn't helping too much. But Gintoki will carefully get off the lion, giving it just one more pat. He liked animals, after all.

Luckily, Gintoki is much more used to people hauling around swords and other dangerous weapons, so as long as it isn't pointed at him, he's better. He'll, uh, just hold onto his wooden stick here. Yeah, that's cool. He's looking cool, right?]

I, you know, there was, I mean, I could've taken that one, so like, I didn't need that. [sorry lion-san, he didn't mean it. It's just that he's completely out of his element right now, fighting a bunch of things he can't kill yet.]

Thanks, I guess, though. [trying so hard to be nonchalant. It didn't help that she was beautiful. But he knew better; she's bound to be a pretty scary woman with a weapon like that, right?]

I-I can teleport now so like, I'm fine.

[And with that he'll blink out of existence. Only to--

Reappear. In the exact same place. He. . . totally meant to do that. Yeah. Smooth Change the subject, change the subject. . . .]

Who are you, anyway?

dominatriarch: ([heh] | Before this hits the ground)

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-04-01 12:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[ JFC don't you remind her of someone... kind of. But what else can she say about the sudden disappearance and the abrupt thank you and the apparent tsundere of his approach?

But hey, at least he's being a nice little diversion from the entire afternoon of kicking ass and taking names. ]


[ That... should be enough of an introduction. She's still trying to make sense of this guy after all. But hey, she'll regain her composure after a half second. That just sort of... caught her off guard in its ridiculousness. ]

And you are?
pachintoki: (hangover or just your voice)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-04-05 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[He looks distracted, like he's still trying to figure out why the teleporting didn't work. But he'll look back at Bishamon with an unimpressed, dead-fish look in his eyes.]

Sakata Gintoki.

[He'll recognize that name, being Japanese himself, so he's not too surprised now at the large sword, the lion. Seems like this Bishamon actually was a lucky god. Goddess? ]

. . . you sure don't like look your statues, Bishamonten-san. I guess it's good you came along, anyhow.

[He'll rub at the back of his neck some . . . ]

I think I'll just leave the rest of those things to the pros.
dominatriarch: ([?] | So don't you let me down)

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-04-08 12:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes... I.. do get that on occasion.

[ Once upon a time, her armor made her look more like a man. Sadly, those times were the statue building times.. but she doesn't really need to explain that right now.

Maybe a different time and if he asks. ]

But onto more important matters. Will you be alright? We can take you back to Takamagahara if need be.
pachintoki: (what the ever living %$#@ are you doing)

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-04-08 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, the heavens told me. . . I mean, I'm supposed to be the god Inari.sama. So I'm okay, but I don't have one of those special weapons and those things keep following me around.

Is that what they normally do.

[He'll tap his stick on his shoulder while he talks to her, expectant. She probably will notice the up and down look he gives her. ]

So, like. . . is this the kind of thing the gods are wearing these days? I'm not really into that. . .[He'll scratch his cheek absently.]

I mean, I guess I could be but. . . you know, that's not really gonna work when you've got weapons to swing around? Is this an online game or something?

dominatriarch: ([<3] | And don't you hesitate)

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-04-10 01:16 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Inari...? Well that makes yet another god she'd not expected to be replaced so soon. Just what is going on here? ]

Yes... it usually is. If you don't have a shinki yet, I'm certain an opportunity will present itself for you to find one eventually.

[ Because a god without a shinki won't be able to protect themselves properly.

There's a pause though at the online game thing where she actually looks slightly confuzzled before managing the smallest chuckle and a murmured 'Tsuguha, that isn't polite'. ]

If you mean what I'm wearing... this is the form one of my shinki takes. I've found it easier to move around with, to be quite honest. You probably won't be able to find anything quite like her as each shinki's form is unique so... I wouldn't worry so much.
pachintoki: (you're so embarrassing)

what is punctuation

[personal profile] pachintoki 2016-04-28 05:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[He'll rifle a hand through his fluffy hair again, a sure sign that he's a bit frustrated. But he's also too lazy to really get too worked up about something he can't really control, yet.]

Having a shinki sounds like a pain, you know. Who wants to babysit someone, even if they are a weapon or clothes? This whole picture is wrong.
dominatriarch: ([...] | If you could lead the way)

punctuating is overrated

[personal profile] dominatriarch 2016-05-01 12:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[ If only you could see how things are like in her collective shinki-space right now. Kinuha can only hold Tsuguha back so long. ]

I wouldn't call it babysitting. Once they've gotten used to it, they're more than capable of taking care of themselves.

[ There's a pause though. ]

But you wouldn't be wrong in thinking there are things wrong with it.

[ Like how some of them died. And at such a young age. ]
