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~

Meeting Hall

[He still wasn't quite sure what was going on here. Well, other than the fact that he was apparently dead, anyway. With everyone milling about and weaponry being offered freely, there were more than a few opportunities available to him right now, but not all of those opportunities were being weighed evenly in his mind. The weaponry was one thing, but finding his god was entirely another, and saying prayers was right out. Prayers sent out into the ether were about as helpful as doing nothing at all. He had a gut feeling that he had settled on that long before he had found himself in this situation.

Besides, he didn't have the right to wonder about that sort of thing now, did he?

In the end he helped himself to a sword—a large enough one to make someone wonder if he could even wield it, even—and went right back out with the flat side of the blade resting on his shoulder.]

[It hadn't taken him long to figure out that he couldn't defeat any of these ayakashi on his own. Really, the best thing to do would have been to either find his god or at least find a paired god and shinki to fight with. Unfortunately, working together had never been something he had been good at. That still stuck even though he couldn't remember any reasons about why that might be.

His injuries were piling up little by little this way, but he made no effort to try anything else.]

[Ross hadn't bothered to give chase when the ayakashi started their retreat. He didn't get out of those fights unscathed after all, and to make things worse he didn't have much of anything to dress his wounds with. Even with that in mind, he was a little closer to the barrier than he should have been, although it wasn't clear why just by looking. Maybe he was keeping watch. Maybe he was on the lookout for anyone who might get trampled during their escape.

Or maybe he just thought it was funny to watch the ayakashi flee with their tails between their legs. That one was...slightly more possible than the other two options, to put it lightly. The sardonic look on his face left little room for interpretation.

He held his hand over one of his wounds, but nothing happened. Still no mana. Or at the very least, not enough mana. He probably just gave himself away if there was anyone nearby who could sense magic, but he didn't seem to be in a big hurry to get out of there.]
