  • At first, people ruled the land and they alone ruled. Cities were constructed everywhere, wars were fought and treaties were signed. But one day, as if the Earth intended to return all of what humanity built back to nature, monsters and beasts of all types out of nowhere overran each city in waves of overwhelming numbers and left each one in ruin. Only one city was strong enough to defend from the relentless attack thanks to a combination of magic, technology, and 50 meter high walls. They were all that was left of humanity... Them and possible survivors on the outsides of the wall. It's been several years since then and life within' the walls have been manageable. But with the rise of overpopulation, lack of food and water, and looming beasts that threaten what little they have left of society, risks will need to be taken. Perhaps with some help from a particular from a substance that turns monsters to Mamono, they could take back what was once was humanities. Of course being only a recently discovered resource many tests will have to be conducted first...

    ---

    The Last City is a steampunk/fantasy setting.

    You can be human, monster, or mamono. If human you're options of introduction are already been born and have lived in the city or have arrived at the city looking for sanctuary. If you choose monster it's the same as the human's options. Mamono's options are you're either looking for sanctuary or have been experimenting with DE, been monitored after turning, and been allowed to become a citizen of the city.

    Most monsters will be controlled by me but if you'd like to add your own you may if you ask me ahead of time and get the OK. Also if any of you like to control a monster that just been turned into a mamono that was originally controlled by me, go ahead.

    For why monsters are allowed to live in the city. Monsters that have gained a sense of humanity have proven themselves to the city and have been allowed to live inside. Plus this will cause some interesting conflict inside the city since monsters are the reason why humanity is in danger.

    The city name is Zelous.

    And finally, no overpowered characters.

    • Chris langley had been borm inside the city of Zelous, thankfully. Monsters had overrun all the towns and states as the world had now been switched from ruled by humans to now being ruled, somewhat. Truthfully, life was quaint and dull, yet at the same time there was always the fear of being attacked by them. While the city was the most technological of its' time, there were some monsters near the wall, so there was always a monster's presence. Dragons of myth, horse-like creatures of old, and beings of legend and lore sprouted up in such a short matter of time. And they were out for blood.

      However, like many who lived there, he lost ones dear to him. His mother volunteered to help defend the city, only to end up in their clutches and lost her forever. His father, driven to discover and see if there was a new safe haven for the overpopulating city of humanity, but he vanished without a trace, leaving Langley alone.

      But not all was lost. A new resource called DE could shift the tide over for the human race, allowing the possibility for monsters to become more civilized, turning them into mamono...however, it was largely untested, and the side effects were unknown besides being turned into more humanoid beings. But many believed it was humanity's saving grace. While Chris was afraid of the outside world, he was also willing to help, and signed up to help secure and transform the creatures so that the world could become a better place for all. He only hoped he wouldn't get shredded in the process...

    • It was early in the morning when Chris had to get up and get ready for the first day of monster hunting and capturing. An old friend of his was waiting for him outside his house, a fellow Monster Hunter, Finn.

        Loading editor
    • (Um, do I name the friend or...?)

        Loading editor
    • (Whoops. Changed it.)

        Loading editor
    • Chris got up and did his daily routine, the shower fist, hygienics second, and meal third before getting dressed to begin his fist day of training, seeing his old friend he made during the time spent in Zelous.

        Loading editor
    • "Finally ready I see. " Finn said, already in his armor and all. Finn at the time of the monsters attack lived outside of the city in a near village with his family. Him, his brother, and mother along with some others made it out, unfortunately, his father did make it out of the attack. He rarely speaks of what happens on that day for obvious reasons.

        Loading editor
    • "So...where do we start?" Chris said, apprehensive of his first day. "So that's standard issue armor? Or is it reserved for more talented individuals?"

        Loading editor
    • "We're heading to the military branch of Zelous. As for my armor, I had it custom made." He replied as they started walking. "How was your morning?"

        Loading editor
    • "Went regularly enough I suppose. Took my shower, got dressed, the normal routine. Although I'm wearing civilian clothes right now, not geared up for battle such as yourself." Chris replied back, then sighing. "The outside world...I take it things have been going somewhat smoothly, although there are...casualties. Just like my mother and father..."

        Loading editor
    • "As far as I've heard nothing that needs large concern..." He said as the two headed down some stone steps. "First day on the job... Maybe we'll be promoted to captains." He joked.

        Loading editor
    • "Pfft. Like that'll happen. The only way we'd be able to pull off something like that is if we'd capture a monster, and a BIG one at that. They'd probably start us off small, the higher ups." Chris said, smiling at the silly, yet uplifting notion. "Speaking of...how large has the testing gone on monsters?" Chris continued, as the military infrastructure was in sight.

        Loading editor
    • "Yeah... But it be fun being able to set up our own squads and all. Then again I should be taking this more seriously, right." He said with a shrug. "As for the testing, get a load of this. They've been testing the DE on Goblins since they're pretty easy to come by. So far out of the five tests, 100% of them turn out female, cute females from what I heard. Along with what I've heard they're a bit.... Frisky. Trying to get into the scientist's trousers." He said with a laugh.

        Loading editor
    • "Darn right it is, being a leader and all that. But the trousers? Could it be a side effect?" Chris chuckled a bit, as their walk continued. "Or maybe the goblins just had a taste for getting into pants."

        Loading editor
    • "That be a side effect I wouldn't mind... Pants Goblins..." He gave a muffled laugh as they arrived and groups of people stood around all new recruits. The two of them would spot Finn's brother, Caius. "I see my little bro made it."

        Loading editor
    • "Your brother? I thought only one of your family were enlisting." Chris replied, seeing Caius as the orientation was almost at hand.

        Loading editor
    • "And that's where you're wrong. I tried to convince him not to since it was heartbreaking enough for our mother having one of her children enlist but he wouldn't budge. He's got his reasons." He said with a sigh before smiling. "Guess I'm going need to look after him now just like when we were little."

        Loading editor
    • "...Well, who knows what'll happen. Maybe your little brother may end up being the big brother out there. Just don't go and embarrass him, dude." Chris said back, as the notification that orientation was about to begin. "Here's hoping we make through this unscathed..."

        Loading editor
    • "Whaaaaaat? Meeee? Noooo?" He said and went silent as orientation started.

      The head of the Monster Hunters, Malstar went up to the podium with all of his glory. Nearby stood some other notable figures, one being Klarx and the other bring Atar. Both well-known captains and both having tremendous combat prowess. Malstar would start speaking...

      "I thank you all, recruits, for joining our endeavor in taking back what used to be ours. It takes courage facing down these monsters that threaten our livelihoods. For today you all will be hunting Rhinoceroaches. Divulge the information on Rhinoceroaches from your monster manuals. You'll all be split up into three squads and the goal is to capture six; two from each squad. This whole thing will be supervised by Klarx and Atar. Good luck to you all." He said as he stepped away from the podium and Klarx approached it.

      "Alrighty, all you line up shoulder ta shoulder and we can get this underway."

        Loading editor
    • "Well...best do as he says." Chris spoke, whispering to Finn as the recruits began to line up."Rhinoceroaches? Those buggers can get pretty large..."

        Loading editor
    • (Hummm...I’ll decide soon if I want to join)

        Loading editor
    • (Your welcomed to join!)

      "They sound like they're get big." Finn said as the recruits start to get split up between three squads. Finn would be sent off to one of the groups while Chris was taken by another. Caius was sent over to Finn's squad.

    • Name: Burden.

      Age: 27.

      Species: Monster. (White Scaled Saurian.)

      Origin: Outside of the City.

      Family: Emerald, his pet Bubble Slime. (Not yet turned into Mamono.)

      Personality: Naive, Carefree, Kind.

      Skills: Some magic, fast healing, good at running away.

      (Is this an acceptable character?)

        Loading editor
    • The squads would then be ushered over, their attention directed back into the podium.

        Loading editor
    • (Yes it is.)

      Atar would step up to the podium. "After we get together our gear we'll be heading out of the West gate. Stay with your squads at all times. That is all." He said and headed over to Klarx, starting a discussion. At the moment the captains were asking for volunteers to either handle the shock rods or net launchers. Shock rods were the main way of subdueing monsters and didn't take much skill to handle. The net launchers were heavy and took accuracy. Or Chris might just want to use a sword or bow. The choice was his.

        Loading editor
    • Chris pondered the decision, and since the Rhinoceroaches were agile bugs, slow reload times were costly. He despised blood, however he was willing to witness bloodshed on another's hands, so long as they weren't his. He grabbed a shock rod and stood by the others who were waiting outside the West entrance to the untamed outside world. Gulping, he only spoke a single sentence. "May mercy be with me..."

        Loading editor
    • Luckily he got one of the four shock rods. "Alright, open the gate!" Atar said to the workers and slowly the massive gates to the outside opened up. The city was mostly surrounded by fields which meant for the most part they couldn't get surprised by any hostile monsters. Sadly Rhinoceroaches didn't reside in fields, they resided in forests. The three squads would head out, each with one cage cart towed by horses to help transport the Rhinoceroaches led by a captain. It was time to face the outside world.

        Loading editor
    • "...So, this is the outside world..." Chris shuddered a bit as everyone was outside, the large doors closing behind them as they delved from grassland to forest.

      Species: Human

      Age: 32

      Origion: Outside Of City, moved into city.

      Family: None

      Skills: Gun enhancement magic, short point warp magic.

    • As Burden walked, he could see something in the distance... A wall? One that was ginormous and sturdy looking? Could it be!? Sanctuary?!

      (Also, thought I should mention. Monsters with a sense of humanity obviously survive easier on the outside. The main difference between a monster and a human living on the outside is that primal monsters won't actively plan and seek out to kill sensible monsters unlike humans though are still quite hostile to both.)

      MEANWHILE

      R would get a knock at his door. Outside a Dwarf stood who in advance told R that he would be getting him in the morning to bring him to the top of the wall to look over the wall's defenses.

      MEANWHILE

      "Remember." Their captain started. "Surround, net, subdue." He said as they started towards the forest. Caius seemed to have opted for using a sword. Maybe this be a good time to read up on Rhinoceroaches if he had his monster manual on him.

        Loading editor
    • "Surround...net...subdue...right." Chris muttered silently, as any creature was bound to go buck wild against hunan presences. "Might as well read up about it..."

      Chris then opened his book that he bought before signing up, reading up on the Rhinoceroach, since it was common knowledge for a person to know his adversary before the engagement.

      (Tried looking for info on the beast, but only a small piece of info was there. Not enough for a full detailed explanation. I'll leave it to you what the Rhinoceroach bio details.)

        Loading editor
    • Burden, topaz dagger in hand, stared at the massive walls. He had heard of this place from a Lamia friend of his, and deciding that it would certainly be better then hunting the mindless beasts that prowled the ruins he resided in, had gone in search of the city.

      Behind him a small aquamarine blob followed. It was Burden's closest companion, and had been with him for years.

      "C'mon Emerald, let's go!" He said to his companion, walking over towards the City in the distance.

    • R yawned as he got dressed. Another day another paycheck. Once he grabbed his rifle he stepped outside and went to work on inspecting the walls. “Right...As an Ace Mercanary it’s time to get to work.”

    • The Dwarf, named Ricktor, walked with R. "How was your morning?" He asked and gave a yawn as they started their daily routine.

      MEANWHILE

      As Burden traveled towards the wall, he'd see that monster activity became less and less the closer he got to the wall.

      MEANWHILE

      Rhinoceroach

      Family/Type:Beetle/Bug

      Habitat:Forests

      Disposition:Hostile, territorial

      Diet:Omnivore

      Loot:Rinoceroach shell, Rinoceroach meat

      Despite the name having roach in the name they more resemble beetles and with that comes thick and strong exoskeletons that are tough to get through. They rarely are alone, most of the time with two or three others and have no problem calling in others if the nest is close enough. Use heavy weapons to shatter through their armor or piercing weapons that can go through the exoskeleton. Despite their large size they can also fly so watch out for any that are at a distance as they can close that distance and go in for the kill. Also, bring some backup in case the Rhinoceroach call in its own.

        Loading editor
    • Chris sighed as he closed the book, as the team delved deeper inside the jungle. He could hear sounds of various creatures, including sounds of audible rustling as the squads became more tense about their surroundings. "Wonder what the Rhinoceroaches are going to be for..."

      "Here's hoping." Ricktor said as they got on the elevator and it started the climb up the 50-meter wall. "Wanna go out for drinks after this?" This wasn't an uncommon question coming from Ricktor.

      MEANWHILE

      As Burden approached, she could see that the giant gate wasn't open. A watch guard sitting within' the confines of the walls was looking out one of the windows. He'd catch sight of Burden. "Oi! State your business!" He said, standing up with a rifle in hand.

      MEANWHILE

      "Experimentation, meat, domestication." Caius said, overhearing Chris.

    • "They have a surprising amount of meat inside the shells. As for the shells themselves, they can be made into weapons and armor. The backs are too sharp to be ridden on but they can be kinda trained like hounds." Caius replied.

      "Alright, stay there then." He said as he went out of view, probably to ask a higher up.

    • Name: Nicknamed - Monarch / Real name is not known.

      Age: Early-Mid 20's.

      Species: Human (Presumably male.)

      Origin: Born somewhere outside of the city.

      Family: Whether Monarch still has family is not known, though he seems to have a pet crow named 'Corkscrew' that usually sits on his left arm or either shoulder.

      Personality: Although not much is known about Monarch, he seems to care about the people close to him, though if given the chance, will avoid a fight. In this sense, he is a bit cowardly. Likes to talk to people from the outside about their experiences. Would give his life to save Corkscrew.

      Skills: Can sense footprints (tracks) on soft surfaces. Is able to run at increased speeds for a short time (This requires large delays to recharge, however.) Is able to use Corkscrew to relay information to him on enemy locations.

      (Heya, was looking to join. Is this a good character?)

    • “Drinks eh? Sure. Always can use a drink.” He nodded as he began inspecting the walls and defenses.

        Loading editor
    • (Uh, we'll just overlook the mistake, King. And that's a fine character, Addiction.)

      After a bit of time the gates would open up to Burden a bit and two guards stepped out. "Inside, hurry..." They also eye the slime that sat beside Burden. "And is that creature with you?" Seeing as it wasn't attacking they weren't alarmed.

      MEANWHILE

      Caius thought for a few moments. "Depends. Tyrants can get bigger than their regular counterparts. Queens usually get to the size of an elephant. A regular Rinoceroach usually are around the size of cows. Now a Tyrant Queen Rinoceroach... That would be big."

      MEANWHILE

      "Wonderful!" Ricktor said as they made it to the top. He'd walk over to their main defense against massive monsters. A giant, energy railgun. These fine things of top engineering fire high speed and high damaging energy shots that can pierce straight through several Dragon and then some. Sadly two things hinder the giant killing machine: Slow charge time and the energy it needs to fire a shot. Three shots can be fired in total during one attack, the saved up energy it already has inside, redirecting all energy within' the city to the railgun, and using backup energy that the city saves for rainy days. Four railguns sit on top of the walls, one facing each cardinal direction. It takes quite a long time to travel around the wall even with the cart system set up around the top of the wall, taking about half an hour between each railgun.

        Loading editor
    • "Its with me. C'mon Emerald, follow me!" He said to the slime as he entered though the gates. Emerald followed behind.

    • "...gulps*. I-I see..." Chris replied back, frightened a little by the prospect of a larger than life Tyrant Queen Rhinoceroach, before hearing some buzzing sounds. "Is that...are those...?"

      Chris readied his shock rod as the slightly afraid rookie readied himself for anything.

        Loading editor
    • (Alright, thanks. Is there any specific way I should introduce my character?)

    • (Well him discovering the city's existence is something. Or more interestingly he could happen upon the squads that are out capturing Rinoceroaches.)

      The guards would step aside to let Emerald and Burden inside. "Do we really have the room to let a monster and his pet in?" One guard asked the other.

      "Regardless if we do or don't, every being seeking sanctuary are allowed entry." The other guard said and turned to Burden. "We'll be escorting you to have you gain citizenship. We'll also need to have your pet Bubble Slime be sent to the vet."

      MEANWHILE

      The Chris's squad would happen upon two Rinoceroaches. They both seem to be fighting over something and we're to busy clashing to notice the squad approaching. The captain would give the hand signals for 'Surround'.

      MEANWHILE

      "They do indeed." Ricktor said as he checked the barrel. "Though takes a hell of a long time to just check one. Takes almost an hour to make sure everything is fine and dandy."

    • Burden couldn't help but want to scowl at the inability of the guards to get his gender correct. Of course, he shouldn't expect anything else, since there wasn't much difference between males and females of his species, and he had been told his voice didn't really convey his gender to others.

      "Of course. Emerald, why don't you go with these men?" The slime slowly makes its way over to the guards.

    • (Whoops, that was a typing mistake. Been corrected.)

    • Monarch sat quietly beside a small fire, occasionally checking the sky for Corkscrew. After some time, Corkscrew returned and landed on Monarch's shoulder before hopping to his arm. "People?! Hmm, interesting." He comments to himself, stamping the fire out before preparing his things. Monarch was quite excited to meet actual people. It had been a while since last contact with real humans. Then again, he couldn't just blindly walk up to them...

      Taking a small drink from one of his canteens, Monarch started to walk in the direction of the patrol, making sure to stick to whatever could provide cover as he walked.

        Loading editor
    • One guard would take the Bubble Slime one way and the other guard would lead Burden another way. "You can pick up your Bubble Slime after we're done." He said as they walked. Burden could see that the city looked quite advance with machines every which way. The smell of food in the air and people walked around going about their business. Much different from the life outside.

      MEANWHILE

      As the squad surrounded the two Rinoceroaches they'd realize that humans were in the area and face the squad. It would seem they were fighting for food. They let out high pitched roars at them as the recruits moved to let the people with net launchers get a good aim. Though it looked like they were going to pounce at any moment.

      MEANWHILE

      "Yeah, I know." Ricktor said as they finished up looking over the first railgun. He'd get into the cart and wait for R.  "Well at least we get one damn fine view to admire when we're up here!" He said, looking out towards the outside world.

      MEANWHILE

      It looked like the people Crockscrew found were quite the ways away. After a bit of walking, he'd see them. They looked to be soldiers surrounding two Rinoroaches, most of them men with sword and wearing proper armor. The net launchers and shock rods looked advanced too. Seeing that they had a cart it looked like they intended to capture the two creatures.

        Loading editor
    • "I hope their aim strikes true, or else we're in for an infestation..." Chris said inaudibly to himself, as the ones who had Net Launchers had their sights set since the element of suprise was lost.

        Loading editor
    • “Woah... These people have advanced tools, Corkscrew. They know what they’re doing.” Monarch speaks to his crow companion as he observes the situation. “Maybe they have a place to go back to? Do you think they’d accept us?” He continues to speak to his crow.

      Monarch soon found a slightly elevated point with a bush and watched the group curiously, being sure to keep Corkscrew quiet as to not reveal their position.

        Loading editor
    • The recruits with the net launchers would take aim and fire, one of the beasts getting caught in the heavy net but the other Rinoceroach flies out of the way at one of the soldiers but luckily a second attempt with the net launcher catches it from doing any major damage. It was time for Chris and the other people with shock rods to come in and subdue them. So far, so good.

    • “Yeah, one hand you got the crowded city behind us, and in front of us open plains with some woods. Best all day secery anyone could ask for...” He sarcasticly spoke getting into the cart after seeing everything was in order.

      “Still, home is home if you stay in one spot for More than a day. “

    • "For Zelous!!!" Chris let out a shout, powering up the Shock Rod as he and the other rookies in his squad zapped them as the subduing process began, being wary of the potential danger for reinforcements for the two entangled Rhinoceroaches.

        Loading editor
    • Monarch continued to watch as they captured the Rhinoceroach’s, waiting till they were subdued before revealing himself.

      He’d then hide behind the bush before deciding to let Corkscrew fly and try to spot anything else nearby. After Corkscrew took flight, Monarch started watching the group of hunters once again. Corkscrew would start circling high above the group.

    • "Well, you gotta at least admit the night sky here is breathtaking." Ricktor said as he pulled the lever which started up the cart.

      MEANWHILE

      The other recruits joined in on shocking the Rhinoceroaches into submission. It takes about 5 or 6 good shocks to knock the two out. "Alright, move these things into the cart." The captain commanded as he took out a map and gave it a look over.

    • "Yes sir!" Chris shouted in unison with the other recruits in his unit.

      Finding and subduing a couple of Rhinoceroaches was one thing. Getting them on the transport was going to take a little more effort...

      "Alrighty then...mental note: never assume a bug is light. Ever." Chris grunted as the strain of team lifting a two creatures on to the wagon was evident.

    • "Uh-huh. So, how exactly do I get citizenship?" Burden asked, following behind the guard.

        Loading editor
    • Seeing as as the group had managed to subdue the creatures, Monarch found it fitting to reveal himself. Maybe this could lead to sanctuary.

      “I’d be careful with those things. They don’t like to stay down.” He warned whilst stepping out from behind the bush. Onviously, judging by his look, he was not from the city.

        Loading editor
    • “Eh...When you see it a bunch of time soon the novelty wears off. But I’ll admit, it looks alright.” R replied.

        Loading editor
    • "Thanks for the tip. Obviously monsters...Ugh!" Chris replied back, thinking it was one of the recruits, still struggling with the Rhinoceroaches as the group almost hot them both in. "In case you haven't noticed, they're heavy. Wily, too."

      Chris felt them move about a little as the creatures somewhat resisted the attempts to be brought into the transport. Casting a glance at the owner of the voice, he found out quickly that he wasn't even part of the unit.

      "Uh...who are you? You don't seem friendly..." Chris spoke once more, activating his shock rod. "Speak your intentions. I don't want this to end badly for us both."

        Loading editor
    • “Woah! I thought you would be excited to see another human.” Monarch says, sounding confused and a little disappointed. Though this was hard to recognize, as his mask, well, masked some of the emotion in his voice.

      “I am not here with bad intentions. I only seek refuge, and when I was told of your presence by my pet, I realized this might be my opportunity.” Monarch Continues to speak, a masked sincerity in his voice.

        Loading editor
    • "By signing papers and getting a job." The guard replied to Burden as they arrived to at a building and went in.

      MEANWHILE

      "Well, it's something coming from you." Ricktor said with a laugh as they were halfway to the next railgun.

      MEANWHILE

      The captain was busy looking at the map and noticed Monarch. "Hey, you're not apart of the squad..." He took a glance around and heard he was seeking refuge. "So you've been living on the outside I take it? A survivor for when the wave of monsters came?"

        Loading editor
    • "...You wish to seek refuge?" Chris pondered knowing the outside world was a hostile place, as some people could be unfriendly out here. "...If you've got good intentions, please speak your name, call your...pet real quick like so that it can do whatever it's doing at the moment, and please help us with these bugs. By helping us, you'll have secured at least a security check for any dangerous cargo, and if cleared through, you'll be granted citizenship, provided you follow our rules."

      Chris sighed, knowing first impressions were always the hardest when dealing with outsiders.

      "Sorry about that. It's just that there are...less friendly people out here who loot what they can, as well as from us. Hopefully you can prove you're an alright sort." Chris spoke once more, apologizing and stating the reason for the sudden wariness.

        Loading editor
    • "That sounds easy enough. I was a bit scared that it would be something terrible, like 'Kill a Queen Tyrant Rhinoceroach.' And that I'd die a horrible death instead of being granted sanctuary." Burden says to the guard as he looks around the room.

        Loading editor
    • “Yes, I’ve been out here as long as I can remember.” Monarch comments in regards to the captains questions. He’d then turn his head to look at the other soldier.

      “People call me Monarch, and my pet...” Monarch looks up at the sky, quickly spotting his crow. He’d then lift his left arm out, waiting. After a few moments, a crow swoops down and lands on his arm. “She’s called Corkscrew.” He answers with a smile that’s hidden by his mask.

      “It’s true. People out here feel hopeless and desperate, so they they resort to... Well, I’m sure you’re familiar with their methods. I assure you, however, I am not like them.” Monarch further explains before listening to see if Corkscrew had spotted any threats nearby.

        Loading editor
    • “Eh...It’s not that impressive...Jeeze...I guess it’s better than looking behind you every few minutes outside these walls. Still, ain’t keeping my hopes up...” R sighed idily tinkering with his rifle.

        Loading editor
    • "So? Can you please help us load these up?" Chris replied, now starting to ease up a bit at the newcomer. "Offer still stands, if you agree to the check-up and all that."

        Loading editor
    • (Ill be gone for a bit. Ill be back shortly.)

        Loading editor
    • “Yes, of course. I’m coming down now.” Monarch states before slowly making his way down to the group. His free hand was up to signify he didn’t have anything in his hands, because the other was occupied with holding Corkscrew.

        Loading editor
    • Corkscrew would see that there were Rincoeroaches in the area but none of them aware of the squad or Monarch. "You help with us we'll escort you to our city. You can gain citizenship there." The captain said, motioning to the bugs that were being transported into the cage cart.

      MEANWHILE

      R and Ricktor would arrive at the next railgun. "Alrighty, onto the next one." He said, getting out of the cart and headed over to the giant machine.

      MEANWHILE

      "We have the Monster Hunters to handle any monster-related activity." The guard said as they entered the well-furnished building. The room looked to be a waiting room and another guard stood on watch by the entrance. The guard that escorted Burden to the building rolled up a cart. "Place all of your possessions on this cart of inspection, please. I guarantee that all items will be returned undamaged."

      Meanwhile, at the vet's, an inspection of a sample of Emerald's slime took place for any disease or anomalies.

        Loading editor
    • “Thank you. I can assist by being your eyes of the land.” Monarch explains in a relieved and thankful tone. Afterward, he whispered something to a Corkscrew before sending her into the air.

      “Please don’t let those things wake up,” Monarch then says, looking at the two captured Rhinoceroaches, “there are more of them nearby, and they might be drawn here by their screech.” He’d explain whilst looking around the surrounding area, all the while keeping his hands by his sides and away from his weapons.

        Loading editor
    • Chris gulped, hoping the Rhinoceroaches would stay asleep.

        Loading editor
    • "Don't worry, the cage-carts have a rune placed on them that prevents sound leaving the cage. Also, do you know where these other Rinoceroaches are?" He said as he took one last glance at the map.

    • “That’s a relief.” Monarch says with a relieved sigh. He’d then slowly walk over to the captain before looking over the map. After getting a grasp of where they were, he pointed out the spots on the map where Rhinoceroaches were located.

    • (I'm back.)

    • The components looked fine. Ricktor would head over to the barrel and take a peek inside. "Oh... Well now." R hears him say. "Looks like some birdies decided this be a wonderful place to make a nest. Remind me to write a report to animal control about this when we get down off of here."

      MEANWHILE

      "Alright. We're heading East to catch a few more Rinoceroaches." He then turned to Monarch. "So... That crow. You can communicate with it?"

        Loading editor
    • "East? Um...what lies East of here? And please don't tell me there's a Tyrant Queen Rhinoceroach..." Chris said, knowing now that a single one of those regular insects was dangerous in and of itself. "Any other creatures we need to be wary of in that direction?"

    • “Birds nest?...Guess that means this gun has not been used for quite some time then. Still, everything looks to be working.” R spoke as he closed it up.

    • "Even my clothes?" He said, referring to the green robes he wore. He placed his dagger into the cart, and a few little trinkets he had collected over the years, such as the fangs and claws and scales of some of the creatures he had hunted.

        Loading editor
    • “Yes, we understand each other quite well. She’s been helping me survive for some time now. Having a second pair of eyes in the sky is quite helpful.” Monarch explains whilst petting Corkscrew. “She’s saved more than once.” He then states with a small laugh.

      “Would you like me to send her up as we head south?” Monarch asks, continuing to pat Corkscrew as he turned his head to face the captain.

        Loading editor
    • (So, ready for another day of RPing on this scenario?)

        Loading editor
    • "Means we haven't had to deal with any giant monsters lately." He said as they headed for the next cart to head over to the next railgun.

      MEANWHILE

      "What lies East of here is more Rinoceroaches. Not queens or tyrants." He said towards Chris and turns to Monarch. "No, that will be just fine. For now, just follow us."

      MEANWHILE

      "No, keep your clothes on. Now..." He picked up a couple of papers from the cart and handed them to him. "Try to fill these out before you're called in." About three papers asking for first, middle, last name, birthdate, birthplace, skills, any family, etc. A whole bunch of questions. Luckily she had a comfy couch to sit down on and a table with a pencil lying on it to write with. The guard then pushed the cart into another room, disappearing from sight.

      (How's the RP for all of you?)

    • (I'm enjoying thus far. Not that I've been around for long, however.)

      Monarch nods before having Corkscrew hop onto his shoulder. "If that is what you want." He says with an almost disappointed tone. He'd then look at everyone and their clothing. "Such strange attire."

    • Burden, having no last name of his own, decided to take the last name of his Lamia friend, Morgana Lynn. He left the middle name blank.

He began to list his skills in hunting, magic, and evading confrontation, and put Emerald for his family.

    • "Actually, what if the bugs are smarter than what we thought? I mean, it'd be a good idea to have eyes in the sky. Monarch's bird also seems well-trained, so the bjrd may be able to sense things we don't." Chris said, putting his two cents in despite the possibility of being scolded at.

    • She had escaped.

      The scientists always looked for her in the dampest spots of the city, searched every area that would be considered marsh-like. Hell, they had even put up wanted posters for a missing experiment. But they never thought to look beneath the ground. In their own sewage system.

      The Mucus Toad sighed as she stared up at the pipes and street drains. She had become accustomed to the dark, and had learned to see quite well. She only wished for some cleaner water, and maybe some better food besides cockroaches and the occasional scraps that fell into the sewer. I hope... that this won’t be the rest of my life...

        Loading editor
    • The sewers were, for the most part, quiet except for the sound of people walking and talking on the surface. So far sewer proved a safe hiding spot. But the living conditions weren't the best, that was for sure. Just what was she to do next?

      MEANWHILE

      Soon a woman walked into the room Burden was in from a hallway and looked over at him. "Alright, I'm ready for you. Follow me please" She said and walked back into the hallway, heading towards one of the many doors.

      MEANWHILE

      The captain sighed. "We've been dealing with these sorts of creatures for years now and so far they haven't proved very smart but if you insist." He then looked back at Monarch. "Alright, use your crow to keep an eye from above."

        Loading editor
    • The Toad decided to do the one thing that really entertained her: to watch the surface world from the drains. Even though she was afraid of them, the humans were so interesting. She vaguely remembered when she was a vicious beast, one that attacked boats and fisherman that got to close to her lake. But now... she had found a growing curiousity pertainign to them.

        Loading editor
    • "You got it." Monarch said, sounding rather excited before having Corkscrew land on his arm. He'd then whisper something to her, and she quickly flew high into the sky. After reaching a certain height, she'd just do wide circles around the group, occasionally cawing.

      Monarch stopped every time Corkscrew made sound, presumebly to listen; giving updates on the situation around them.

        Loading editor
    • Burden followed the woman. "What do I do now ma'am?" He asked, looking around as he walked.

        Loading editor
    • As Ricktor and R got closer to the next railgun they could see the guards stationed at it looking over the wall down at something.  "Hm... Wonder what they're looking at over there. Probably trouble if it involves the outside."

      MEANWHILE

      The toad could see the humans in the surface going about their business. Talking to each other, some merchants selling items, vendors selling delicious looking food that probably equally smelled good but was covered up by the overbearing stench of the sewer. She could also see other races going around and doing the same but none of them being her own race.

      MEANWHILE

      The woman would lead Burden into a room and took a seat behind a desk. "Now you tell me what kind of work you can do." She said as she got out more papers.

      MEANWHILE

      So far, nothing bad. Just some Rinceroaches. After the group walked for a small bit of time they'd come across three more Rinoceroaches. The captains would give the command and the recruits would start to get into formation.

        Loading editor
    • She sighed, watching with mixed emotions as the surface world thrived. She had been used to eating giant bugs and fish when she was feral, but now she longed for human food. She longed for her lake. And, strangest of all to her, she wanted a mate. Of course, she wasn’t even sure if male Mucus Toads could reproduce with her, or if they even existed still. But she still yearned for the touch, the life of the outside.

    • "Well, I have some skill in hunting. I am great at finding things and people. And I used to clean up the Ruins i lived in. So I guess work related to those things?"

    • The surface world went on without noticing her. She'd suddenly hear a distant banging and talking in the sewers.

      MEANWHILE

      "Well, there's a big market for hunters. Your skills also sound usable in the monster hunter branch of our military." She suggests.

    • "So...what exactly is your armor made out of? Nothing I've ever seen before, thats for sure. Although I guess ours is foreign to you as well, I guess..." Chris spoke, after a duration of traveling, asking Monarch about the foreign abnormality.

    • “After living out here for so long, I’ve designed my own armour.” Monarch explains happily, excited to speak to someone else. “I suppose this mask is what caught your attention first, yes?” He then asked, as if he had dealt with this question before.

        Loading editor
    • "Um...that would be a yes. So...and pardon my asking once more...but why do you seek sanctuary? You're clearly more capable of living by the land." Chris asked once more, as he took in the information given by Monarch.

        Loading editor
    • “Well Unless it’s the main gate I don’t think it’s humans they are looking at...Or they are...Whatever the case let someone get ready.” R raised his rifle and chambered a round inside. “If it is hostile at least I won’t have to worry about wasting ammo uneccecarily...”

        Loading editor
    • "Of course. Basically, your job would be going out and hunting wild animals and monsters and bringing back the loot and meat. Food is a constant need here in the city so you're almost always guaranteed to sell at least half of your stock the first day you set up your stall to sell. You can also set up your own prices to how you see fit." She explained to Burden.

      MEANWHILE

      "Hey, did you forget were out monster hunting, recruit?" The captain scolded as they had already subdued the three Rincoeroaches while they were talking. "You can talk on our way back to the city, now go help those bugs into the cart."

      MEANWHILE

      "And here I thought it was going to be another quiet day." Ricktor said with a bit of a chuckle as he loaded his own rifle. Once they arrived at the third railgun, Ricktor got off and headed over. "Hey, just what are you all staring at?" The guards looked towards him and R and their gaze goes back down to the outside of the wall.

      "Uh... There's a Owlbear down there... Staring... Since this morning." One guard spoke and down below an Owlbear was indeed staring back up at them, unmoving.

        Loading editor
    • R walked to the edge of the wall and looked down. Must have been something...Why else would they all be staring?...Ok, maybe they were bored but there was a good chance it was trouble.

      Of course looking down there was an owl bear down there. “That it?...Well if it’s staring then maybe it’s either curious or a monster spy if that’s what you decide...” He commented

      "Speaking of experimenting, have you heard about DE experiments going on?" He asked R.

      MEANWHILE

      "Well, that's the next topic. So can you live anywhere or does it have to meet certain requirements?" She asked Burden, pulling out even more papers.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had to survive in this harsh land.” He explains, looking at the land around them. “Judging from how you said it, I take it you have some sort of large sanctuary?” He then asks, a curious tone in his masked voice.

You must've had sone serious odor control if you managed to survive out there within those first few moments. I remember when my parents were around, they told me of the Wave. They told me that it was instanteous, like a flashing blur. Five of the world's biggest cities fell within minutes of the breach, and soon after, every city and settlement in the world came under threat of the monsters. Zelous was the only city that was well aware of the problem of it surging forth. The other countries and regions didn't listen, and when it happened, it was too little, too late. Now it's all ruin, left for scavengers and the like to loot for any remaining valuables. If only the warning was heeded..."

      Chirs gave his two cents before listening more to Monarch's story, siddenly realizing that being curious as he was, now was kind of impolite to quip in. "Sorry...didn't mean to interrupt. Please, continue."

      Soon the two would finish with railgun 3 and onto the cart to the final one. Ricktor would be whistling as they rode towards it.

      MEANWHILE

      She'd see the two humans. They'd seemed to be fixing pipes and some large machine. "It's so damn nasty in here- Aw shit." One of the two guys said as he lifted his foot and looked at the bottom of his shoe.

      “Eventually, I found a cellar and made my home there. Not that it lasted long.” He continues to explains as his hands remained fists.

      Chris had never seen a creature like it before, at least not in public news.

      "...Think its friendly? It looks birdish...!" Chris spoke again, suddenly having an idea. "Monarch, could you get Corkscrew to see what it wants? You seem to communicate well with her, so maybe you can find out what it wants? Birds of a feather and all that."

      "Ever wonder if alligators are down here? Like really big ones?" One of the guys asked as he fixed a pipe.

      "Dude, fuck this job if there is. Like hell I'm sticking around if that's the case."

      "Just toss it to me. I'm actually making progress here." Benvolio said and the guard would do so.

      "Also, be aware that she's wanted. Escaped from the DE labs."

      "Ah... I see... Alright, got it." The guard would leave and Benvolio offered the bottle to the toad woman. This just got so much more complicated for him...

      MEANWHILE

      "Ah, I see... So where were you during the Wave too?" Ricktor asked while looking up at the sky.

      MEANWHILE

      "No, no side effects at all. Well, have a good day." The vet said with a nod as Burden left.

    • Burden looked for a park on his map, he needed to do something to pass the time until night.

    • “Outside, hired into multiple bands of militia to fight and shoot anything not human. Always kept moving place to place when things went to shit which usually happened.” He replied as he attached a new part to the weapon.

    • She took at gratefully and drank a little more of the contents before pouring it on her head and body, smiling as she finally felt clean. Of course, sinc she had escaped from the facility, a lack of clothing never seemed to bother her.

    • Benvolio didn't pay much mind to the lack of clothes. "Alright, just come with me." He said, taking her by her hand and starting to lead her out of the sewers.

      MEANWHILE

      "Ah, I see... So, R, does that stand for anything?"

      MEANWHILE

      He could see a couple of park area's darted around the area. There was one fairly close by to him.

      MEANWHILE

      They were sent to unload the Rincoeroaches into a pen. Finn's group would arrive with not the bug monster but the Owlbear from outside.  "Hey, Chris, check out what we caught!"

      MEANWHILE

      "Well..." The captains started. "I guess you could head to the vets first."

    • Now trusting him completely, the Toad held his hand as she walked with him.

        Loading editor
    • Burden and Emerald made their way to the nearest park.

        Loading editor
    • "Finn, that's the thing we tried talking to! What if because of your act it tries to eat us! Its hungry!!" Chris replied, startled and somewhat panicky about the creature besides the Rhinoceroaches.

        Loading editor
    • “R stands for easy to remember.” He replied casually. “I’m not a fancy person, if it’s easy to remember it’s good enough for me.”

    • “Thank you, sir.” Monarch said, sounding rather relieved. It seemed they didn’t like to be apart from one another. “Where is the vet, if you don’t mind?” He’d then ask, his sounding rather calm now.

        Loading editor
    • Soon they'd leave the sewer and see the three guards. "So... Are we taking her back to the labs?"

      "I, uh, don't think so. Send a message to the DE lab that I found their missing... Toad? I'm going to take her to the doctors."

      "Alright... Well, we'll let the labs now." One of the guards said with a shrug. Benvolio then took the time to take off his armor and then his shirt, giving it to the toad. "Here. Put this on. I can't have you walking around naked."

      MEANWHILE

      At the park, children ran around, playing and various pets walked around going about their business.

      MEANWHILE

      Actually... Looks like the Owlbear ended up eating all of the Rhinoceroaches they caught. Plus Atar was there, watching it. "It's fine! We got permission to catch it." Finn answers.

      "I wouldn't even trust you catching Rinoceroaches. How did you get permission to catch an Owlbear?" Caius said with a laugh.

      "First of all, we caught more of these bugs than you... Just that it got hungry. Second, we had the help of Atar."

      MEANWHILE

      Ricktor shrugged. "If you insist." He said and was silent for a few moments. "What kinds of creatures did you encounter out there?"

      MEANWHILE

      "I'll have a guard escort you." He said, waving one over. "Take this man here to the vets than to get citizenship."

    • The Toad looked at the shirt with confusion, then tried putting it on, only to find herself caught in the fabric. It took a few moments of wild thrashing and flailing for her to put it on backwards. Her mucus seemed to make the shirt stick to her skin, which made her breasts pop out just as much as they would without it.

        Loading editor
    • Benvolio stared for a few moments. "Nice view but not helping." He said with a sigh and waved over another guard.

      "What going on- Wow, uh..." He was left speechless upon catching sight of the toad. 

      "Yeah, I know. Go get me a coat big enough to cover up her chest and her lower area." The guard gave a nod and headed to somewhere. Benvolio then looked towards the toad. "Well... You're cute at least." He said, looking at the bright side of putting up with all of this.

    • “Things that attack you either by tearing you apart or tearing your clothes off then rape you until the end of time. Things like that.” He replied,

        Loading editor
    • The Toad had heard that word before. Kyoot... that’s... that’s a word of affection! The Toad smiled unconsciously and stared at herself, not really sure what was so kyoot about her.

        Loading editor
    • "Wait, wait, wait... Rape?"

      MEANWHILE

      "Did... Did she understand me?" He thought as he saw her reaction. He shook his head and once he got his hands on a coat, slipped it on her. "There. That should cover you up fine..."

    • “Don’t ask me, I heard stories saying they saw two figures literally naked and bouncing on each other. I am busy making sure teeth are not ripping out my neck.” He sighed as spoke left his mouth.

    • The coat seemed to work for for now. It felt heavy and a little claustrophobic to the Toad, but if humans wore this stuff every day, she might need to get used to it.

    • Burden made his way over to a bench and say down, letting Emerald lay on his lap. He then let himself enjoy the scenery.

        Loading editor
    • Ricktor scratched the back of his head. "The outside world is way stranger than I expected..."

      MEANWHILE

      Benvolio then started to lead her through the city, holding her hand to make sure she didn't get lost. The sounds of talking were all around and the smell of food from vendors filled the air.

      MEANWHILE

      The park was quite peaceful... Much of the opposite of the outside world. It was pleasant.

        Loading editor
    • Burden took this time to look back on his earlier life with fondness, mainly ignoring the parts of it where his friend would consume humans after draining them of their... Fluids. Instead he focused on the times where she didn't do that, and on the times where he would enjoy a successful hunt.

    • “Thank you so much, once again, sir.” Monarch says with quite the grateful tone. Corkscrew then rubbed against Monarch’s helmet, which was met with Gently pets. It seemed they were ready to follow.

    • R simply shrugged. “Well if it happens it happens...” He soon put together the rifle and examined it. “Damn...I can already tell it won’t fire...”

        Loading editor
    • The Toad smelled and heard it all as she glanced around, finally getting fresh air and a good look at the surface world. It was beautiful.

        Loading editor
    • People would walk around in the park. Some people would get up and go and others would arrive. Many races and faces went around. Occasionally a man or woman would sit down next to Burden, also enjoying the sunny day.

      MEANWHILE

      The captain nodded and went about his business. A guard would approach Monarch. "Just follow me, sir." He said, starting to lead Monarch through the city.

      MEANWHILE

      "Want me to take a look at it?" Ricktor offers.

      MEANWHILE

      "Hungry?" Benvolio said towards the toad. Considering she was so thirsty he thought to ask.

    • “Nah...I was trying to build a special chamber, instead of chambering a round every time, it can hold much more ammo while having the magic device...But it seems that it’s not quite ready...” He spoke.

    • Burden would take notice of every person who sat beside him, and make sure to remember them. He was surprised by how peaceful it was when compared with the outside world.

    • "...Well, who's going to...oh no. NO WAY." Finn looked at Chris with a smile, who just had an idea for the Owlbear as it was called. "That thing's too huge to be a PET!"

    • "Ah, I see." Ricktor says as he leans back, stretching.

      MEANWHILE

      Yes, much more peaceful than the outside world. He'd sit there for however long he wanted. Though he should keep in mind that he needed to eventually head back to find out where he would be housed.

      MEANWHILE

      "Pet? Uh... We're not sure what to do with it. There's been some conversation to send it up to the DE labs between the captains."
