Topaz Gypsy and Minty

As her two allies were conversing with each other, Paz gently pulled Westra out of the way of the playing dragons. After she turned herself back to the conversation, the duo had come back and knocked Paz off of her feet. Fortunetly, she was able to somersault when she hit the ground and semi-gracefully landed on her feet.

 

She turned to watch the two and smirked at their antics, but suddenly stopped when she remembered her earlier conversation with Minty.

 

Giving her a pointed look, the dragon got the message. She walked over to Gemina and Hurricane and started chit-chatting with them.

 

'gooood ridance.' Paz mentally narrated.

(( Wow! Page 4 already! I will introduce y'all to the next round soon, but I don't want to start it quite yet. I am saving the spot I was just about to open up for someone who requested it, so I don't want to move on too far without them. We are getting a new competitor to join us, so expect someone new to show up soon.))

((is it better to have more people in your alliance or less? I know in the Hunger Games, statistically, the smaller your group is the better. After all, everyone wants to win and the more people in your group the more people there are to betray you. Especially when your into the final rounds. On the other hand, you cannot hurt one alliance member without the others trying to take you down. You have more protection, especially in battle. And, it would help in the last round to have more people in your group. BUT, the more people in your group, the more noisy you are thus alerting the enemy... Hmmm. Is it better to have a large alliance? Or a small? Or none at all... ))

(( I think it would be good to have less allies in the earlier rounds, and perhaps have more in the last round. If you want, we can get another ally, or we can just stick with Ivy and Xander being allies. Like Navlyn said, 3 would be a good number.))

((I get the feeling that both Xander and Ivy are lone wolfs. Their alliance will probably push both of them out of their comfort zones. And we gotta stick with what our characters would do, not us. Which is one of the hardest parts of roleplaying. So, I think we should keep the alliance small. It I'm good either way.))

Xander and Banshee

A loud, booming horn sounded, signifying the for the rider to move on to the next stage of the trial. ( like the one they use for dragon racing ). Xander looked towards the sky and saw the overseers on their dragons, waiting for the competitors to join them. The horn had interupted their handshake. He snapped his fingers, causing Banshee to stop chasing Nightshade and perk his head up at his rider. Xander motioned for the two dragons to come. Banshee bounded over to him and allowed him to climb on.
-
" Let's stop by that tree right quick." He whispered to the Flightmare, pointing to a tree that stood out like a sore thumb in the nearby forest. Banshee launched them across the field of grass and stop by the tree. Xander stop up on Banshee's back, reaching up to grab something. He grabbed the hidden bow, then slung it across his back. " There."
-
Banshee flew after the overseers, glancing back to see if his new friend was following.
-
They were lead to a dirt covered battlefield, plain and empty. There was nothing in sight, and trees surrounded the empty field. " Welcome to the second round of the trial, riders. In this stage, you will fight off hoardes of enemies that will be coming at you. You must make it to the other side of the battlefield to move on to the next round. You may use your dragon in this round to help you, but don't use it to just avoid the fight. As in, there is no flying over the enemies or burrowing under the field. You must fight if you want to move on. Any questions?" Astrid explained as the group landed their dragons.
-
Xander dismounted Banshee, making sure he had everything he needed. All weapons he needed were on him. He waited for the other competitors, watching to see what they would use for this stage. He looked around for his ally, seeing if she would join him. If they were to combine forces, they would get to the other side of the field a lot quicker and perhaps be the first ones to finish.

Rogue and Spartan

Rogue mounted Spartan when the horn signaled the next round. She flew after Xander and Banshee to the battlefield. Astrid explained the statistics of round. Rogue could feel electric spasms coming off of Spartan. She brought put jer bow from its leather case and strung it, slinging her quiver over her left shoulder. She checked her dirk blade before resheathing it. She had taken off her knife belt for the first round, and now she buckled it back on, her throwing knives on one hip and her longer, lethal dirk on the other. She scanned over her other weapons she use for this battle. Spartan flexed his claws and shot off zaps of electricity, eager for the coming battle.

Ivy and Nightshade

The long low warbling sound of a horn interrupted Ivy mid-handshake. She automatically jerked back to look for the scorce of the sound. One of their overseers, Astrid was balanced on her Nadder. It was time to go. Ivy cupped her hands around her mouth, immitaiding a Triple Stryke. Nightshade dropped the tree she was playing with, looked at Banshee then bounded over to Ivy. Ivy mounted her dragon and followed Astrid over twords a wide open, empty dirt field. Already she was planing and organizing her attack. There was some trees and the edges of the field, if she kept to those, it would offer more cover and they would have to fight less enimies.

 

Based on Astrid's description, they were to preform close quarters combat, rendering her how and her throwing knives useless. Ivy landed on the ground when she caught Xander watching her. She turned and looked him in the white eye holes in his mask. She almost looked away to carry out her plans when she remembered that her was her ally. And because of that, she had to share her schemes. Discreetly, she gestured twoards the forest. If her and her ally could get over into the tree line, the going would be easy.

 

Ivy slid off her bow and quiver, she handed it to Nightshade then leaned in and whispered something to the dragon. Nightshade cooed and grabbed her weapons and flew off. Then returned a few seconds later having safely stashed them on the otherside to be collected after the challenge. Ivy arranged her weapons, she kept her intricate dagger and her rather bland broad sword. She headed for Xander and stopped Infront of him.

"Still got those bombs?" She stated.

Xander moved a part of his cloak aside, revealing one whole side of his belt loaded with grenades. " Of course. I always have them on hand. You look like you have a plan."

"Yes I do and It looks like you've got a plan." Xander nodded revealing a hole beltful of them. Ivy smirked.

"Good. We will need the distraction." Ivy turned her gaze back to the forest. "If we can get into the treeline, it should offer us cover. And we will have minimal run ins with the enemies."

'Whatever they may be' Ivy thought ominously.

"Hey, I'm almost fifteen, and I pretty strong for my age," she replied to her new friend, "so what's you're name?"

Before she could reply, the horn sounded for the next round.

It was a battle.

This would be easy.

VexyLu was trained at martial arts.

 

((Just putting it out there, VexyLu is a very talented martial artist, so I want her to come a good place, but she came first last round. Could she come about third? If she does, I promise she won't do so well in the next rounds. (I'm really sorry she is scoring so high)

Anyway, sorry I can't RP a lot, I have limited data atm.))

As they headed to the pit, the three new allies and their dragons stood in one section of the ring, waitng for the trial to start.

 

"Anyone have an idea for a plan? Weapon wise, we all have axes of different styles, and I know you, Westra, also have a slingshot that might be of more use then your axe. Does that help much?"

Westra

"Yeah, my slingshot should help. But I think this guys might help more," she said as Geminia walked towards them. "He has this amazing gel that he can spill all over the ground that is highly flammable. If one spark touches it, the whole thing will be in flames and will become a wall of fire. Geminia is also fast. If he can he around some opponents and spill some flammable material around them and set it on fire, they'd be traped." She suggested. "What can your guys dragons do?"

At Westra's question, Paz gave another whistle, which sent a dagger-like projectile towards her fast she managed to catch in her hand.
"Spine shots and fire that would melt rock."
Aiming for a random tree, Paz let the spine fly.

"How 'bout Hurricane, besides the obvious?"

Stormy and Hurricane

Stormy first assessed the obvious- the weaponry on herself. "I have an axe, and a..." she reached down into her belt and drew out two daggers. "Two daggers. Oh, wait." She reached into her armor and systematically removed three more. "And that makes five...no, six, there's another." Stormy reached into her boots. "Seven, eight...er, I think we're pretty well stocked up on daggers." She probably looked rather frightening, pulling weapons out of her clothing.

 

She looked over at Hurricane, who breathed a bout of sparks at the collection of Riders. "Hurricane's lightning can temporarily disable someone's speech, or even bodily parts if we're lucky. I've been working on storing up voltage in multiple ways. We should be good on his part." She waved her hands at the large dragon. "Plus all the spikes and stuff." Hurricane nodded his large head in agreement.

'... That's a lot of daggers.'

 

Taking stock of what she just learned, Paz came up with her most reasonable conclusion.

 

"Yeah... We should be fine."

Brynakha and Draugr

Viking
Name: Brynakha
Gender: Female
Age: 18
Appearance: 
Personality: I think it'd be a bit more fun to find out
Weapons: A bow made from the old scales of my Razorwhips, and two gronkle iron axe blades on the ends.

The arrows for my bow are hollow, and they're the thinner spines that my Whispering Death and my Screaming Death drop. After I hollow out their spines, I attach either flint, jasper, or just gronkle iron to the end in order to spark the fuel inside. The arrows with the jasper on the end are filled with Monsterous Nightmare gel. The arrows with flint on the end are filled with Zippleback gas. The third type of arrow is tipped with Gronkle Iron and is not hollowed out, forming a normal arrow.

-
Dragon
Name: Draugr
Gender: Male
Species: Howling Wraith (Sand Wraith x Woolly Howl Hybrid)
Age: Roughly the same as the handler, probably a bit older
Appearance:  
Personality: He's a bit rough around the edges, and he loves to play pranks, but he can be serious when the time calls for it.
Extra: His fireblast coordinates with whatever he consumes to make his fire, either sand or water. His shot limit also follows whichever he consumes, but if he does use both the shot limits are split in half (AKA 4 sand blasts, 3 ice blasts)

 

-----------------------------------------

 

She was soaring through the air on the back of her dragon, and she was quite irritable at being so late to the tournament. 

"See what you do? You just had to stop on that island, I told you to go before we left. Ugh." She grumbled, glaring down at the gray and black speckled head of her beast. He rolled his eyes back towards his rider and made a snorting sound, which Bryn didn't appreciate either.

"I promise it'll be fun! You could use this time to meet some more riders." Astrid had said to her in order to get her to go, and she owed the other girl a favor. Fantastic. 

As if her thoughts had summoned her, Bryn heard Astrid's voice explaining the challenge, and she patted Draugr on the head. "Let's go, boy, we can still do this." She encouraged, and he made a rather grumpy sound, but she knew that the scaled beast was excited. Unfortunately for her, as she soared down she noticed that pretty much everyone was already in groups, and that did not bode well. Serves me right for being late. She thought to herself, and then shrugged. Ah, well, it'll just be me and Draugr against the world. She gave the dragon another pat on the smooth part of his head just as he landed delicately beside the other riders and their dragons. 

Bryn was pretty much ready to go, but Draugr was a tad tired from the long trip. No matter, they would be fine. 

__________________

 

 

     My name is Brynakha, and I got quite a bit of dragons - 40 in total - on my home island, Tryggr.

     To tell a bit about myself, I quite like to experiment and create new things from my dragons' leftover scales or spikes that fall out, including my bow made from the old scales of my Razorwhips, Bruni and Snarlinga, and gronkle iron that my gronkle, Fiskr, provided me with.

     The arrows for my bow are hollow, and they're the thinner spines that my Whispering Death, Orindi, and my Screaming Death, Jarmr, drop. Sometimes I use their teeth as well. After I hollow out their spines, I put soft bird feathers, color coded, on the ends and depending on the type of arrow, I attach either flint, jasper, or just gronkle iron. The arrows with the jasper on the end are filled with Monsterous Nightmare gel, provided by Bal. The arrows with flint on the end are filled with Zippleback gas, provided by Tven 'n' Ri. The third type of arrow is tipped with Gronkle Iron and is not hollowed out, forming a normal arrow.

 

     What? You want to know more? Well, I can't tell you all my secrets, but on my island sanctuary for dragons and animals alike, I live and handle it alone.

My dragons that are pretty much just residents on the island are more like a wild pack and they're handled by my rescued Singetail, Svidar, who is extremely loyal to me.

 

     My main dragon? I have a peculilar dragon, that's for sure. Oh, his species? He's a hybrid between a Sand Wraith and a Woolly Howl. He doesn't really have a classification just yet, but I call him a Howling Wraith. 

    Oops! Almost forgot, I do have a pet Terrible Terror named Odaell, or Troublemaker. I often just call him Sinni though.

Xander and Banshee

(( Welcome to the roleplay! Round 2 will start soon.))
-
Xander saw a new face join them, a girl on what appeared to be a hybrid. He examined the dragon, judging by its features, he determined it as a Sand Wraith and Woolly Howl combination. However, it looked more Wraith than Howl. ' Hmm, interesting. She looks like a worthy opponent.' He narrowed his eyes underneath his face, before placing his hand on Banshee's snout with his other hand on the Flightmare's chin. Banshee flashed his neon green markings brightly.

(Thanks!)

---------------------------------

The first one to notice the duo seemed to be a boy in a mask, and Bryn made a small sound in between a 'tsk' and a click of the tongue to get her dragon's attention, and the scaled beast turned his head towards his rider before running his muzzle along her shoulder. She scratched lightly under the small row of horns trailing from his eyes, and offered a small smile to the masked man, even if it was more of a smirk. That's pretty much the only kind of smile Bryn knows.

Draugr's gaze, however, was on the flightmare. He tipped his head sideways slightly, to allow his rider to scratch in juust the right spot, and also to pose an question to the Flightmare. When the other dragon lit up and flashed his green markings, the hybrid shook his head free of Bryn's hand and fluffed up his scales in a small ripple, showing off his woolly howl side before they lay flat again. It seemed to be a reply of the same caliber to the flashing green of the Flightmare, he was just saying hello from across the field. Draugr's not one to turn down a challenge of any kind, even if it's just a greeting.

Ivy and Nightshade

Ivy perked up at the sound of wingbeats. She creened her neck upward just as a odd looking SandWraith soared overheard. She watched as a new dismounted her dragon. Banshee, flashed a few stripes in welcome, and the odd Sandwraith raised its... fur? That was when Ivy understood. This dragon must be a Woolyhowl hybrid! Intresting... Suddenly Ivy had a flurry of questions. Like, 'How did that happen?' 'What are it's powers? Frozen  Sand?'

 

 

Nightshade cocked her head at the intresting dragon. She looked back at Banshee and lolled out her tongue panting. Nightshade looked to Ivy and licked her lips before letting her tongue slid out again. Ivy offered her dragon a smile.

Brynakha and Draugr

Bryn seemed to have attracted a bit of attention from some of the other competitors, and she nodded towards a smothering smokesbreath rider that she seemed to have peeked the interest of. However, she - er, Draugr - also called forth the interest of the female who seemed to be paired with the flightmare rider. She didn't know any of these people, however, and she slid her gaze over towards Astrid. She got no reply from the Viking she did know,  so she let out a plaintive sigh and decided to take her chances with the Flightmare and Triple Stryke riders. They seemed to be a tad more welcoming, or at least more intrigued, than the Smokesbreath rider. 

 

When Bryn started walking forward, Draugr shook out his scales in a flurry of fluff before he trotted after his rider in a good natured walk. He ended up bouncing right on past her, though, and came to a sudden stop in front of the Triple Stryke and the Flightmare, before he raised up on his hind legs and plopped down into a sitting position. He offered them a very toothy smile, before he swiveled his head around to watch his rider approach much more slowly and come to stand beside her dragon. "Pardon him, he's a little excited. He doesn't get to meet new dragons very often. I'm Bryn." She nodded respectfully towards the pair, and then glanced around to survey the others as she reached up and laid a calming hand on her own dragon. A Nadder, two Skrills, a.. Cavern Crasher? She's only ever read about those, and heard the tales from the gang. What an interesting find, indeed.

Xander and Banshee

The new girl walked over to Ivy and Xander, her dragon bounding past her. The hybrid stopped in front of Banshee and Nightshade, standing up on its hindlegs then shifting to a sitting position. "Pardon him, he's a little excited. He doesn't get to meet new dragons very often. I'm Bryn." Introduced the nonfamilar rider.
-
Xander wondered why she was allowed to be late, completely skipping the first stage. He stared blankly at the girl, then moved his eyes back to her dragon. He had scales that fluffed up like Wooly Howl fur "scales." He had tail fins at the end of his tail that resembled a Howl's as well. Xander just nodded when the girl introduced herself. She appeared to be older than him, probably a little older than Ivy. Banshee sniffed the hybrid curiously, before huffing and shifting to a sitting position as well, tail curled around his rider.
-
( And if we are ready, I'll have the second round start.)
-
The familar sound of a plasma blast being shot and exploding in the sky sounded. The battle had begun!
-
(( Alright, you can have Ivy run to the cover of the trees and begin with her plan, Xander will just follow and tag along.))

Stormy looked up at the latecomer. "Heyo, I'm Stormy...uh, oops..." She pulled yet ANOTHER dagger out of her armor and awkwardly set it next to her collection of others. "Sorry about that. Anyways, it's a pleasure. Mr. Grumpy over here, the big titan Skrill, is Hurricane." She gave the Skrill a scratch behind the horns. "Welcome to the Trials."

Ivy and Nightshade

 "Pardon him, he's a little excited. He doesn't get to meet new dragons very often. I'm Bryn." The newest rider announced. Ivy narrowed her eyes at the girl, she had  a slim frame like herself and appeared to be a bit older than her. Suddenly there was a loug bang, Ivy twisted around to see the ending sparks of a plasma blast. The battle had begun. Ivy looked and Xander and nodded before taking off. She seperated herself with most of the riders, before stopping, only half way to the trees.

 

She stood her ground there knowing that if she ran all the way to the tree line, her plan would be obvious, the enimes could follow and so could the riders. She'd rather loose them in the chaos of battle. Ivy just hoped that Xander got the message. Xander had kept pace with her, Ivy stepped out a bit and then turned sideways pressing her back against her ally's. She had never fought with a partner before but she ahd seen vikings train this way before. She had Xander's back, so there would be no sneak attacks, as long as Xander had her own.

 

Once the fightning truly began, they would slip away in midst of war, using a bomb or two as a distraction if needbe.

 

Nightshade landed on Xander's flank, her tails raised, at ready.

Topaz Gypsy and Minty

Following Stormy's introduction, Paz stated, "And I-"

 

Ok, should would have stated something if Toothless hadn't signaled for the second stage to begin.

 

"-You know what, We'll finish intros later. Nice dragon and good luck!"

 

Turning to see the other riders pile of daggers on the ground.

 

"I'd state the obvious and say that you should proabably pick those up- I just did. *facepalm* Sorry."

 

After giving Stormy help, she gave a whistle that translated to, "Ready position. Wait for my command."

 

Readying her axe, Paz also took a stance along with her new allies and waited for Chaos: Part II

Brynakha and Draugr

The boy just nodded at her, and his dragon seemed to be a tad huffy at the overexcited Draugr, well, that was just too bad. Bryn patted her dragon softly on the side and ran her hand along the ridges above his eyes, it always seemed to calm him when she did that. The female of the duo was no better, so, apparently she had misjudged and this pair was not as friendly as they appeared, but no matter. 

 

Another girl, a skrill rider, did speak to her though. She raised an eye brow in question as the girl pulled some knives from her armour, and the sound of it also attracted Draugr's attention. He turned his head sharply to her and tipped it to the side slightly as he watched her awkward movements, as if he was curious as to why she didn't notice the daggers in her armour earlier - or why they were there at all. Bryn offered the other rider a small smile, patting the shoulder spikes of her dragon to indicate that he should sit down normally, and he complied. He was much more easily accessable at this height, with all four feet on the ground. "It's a pleasure to meet you as well, this spikey beast is Draugr, but you can call him Ghost. He responds to either." She offered this rider a respectful nod, right before thanking her for the welcome. She hoped she wouldn't get welcomed with daggers, though. 

 

The girl with the Nadder seemed to want to speak, just as Toothless decided to start the race. "For Thor's sake." She growled, slapping the stirrups of Draugr's saddle into place before she leaped up onto the back of the startled hyrbid. She turned towards the Nadder girl and offered her a smile and a salute. "Thanks, good luck to you guys as well!" She said as she clicked her tongue a few times and her dragon took off in a bounding leap towards the chaos. Bryn was remarkably fast getting her bow out, and she started shooting at the crowd. She was aiming for helmets and such of that nature, though, because when her unique arrows struck one, they typically caused sparks which then made the arrows catch on fire, causing quite the raucous.

VexyLu

The second round started.

This was going to be fun...

 

VexyLu ran as fast as she could- she was first in the arena.

Her plan was to run straight through the enemies, as they didn't bother her.

As she approached the first one, she started running even faster.

When got about five meters away, she leaped high into the air, twisted her body, and did a flying round house kick.

She hit the guy hard, right on the right sid of his head.

He collapsed, unconscious.

VexyLu laughed. This was so much fun!

More people approached her and she took them down, one by one, with her smokebreath by her side blasting them.

The next one that came got a right hook in the temple.

The third, a hip throw, on top of the forth.

The fifth a hand in his neck's pressure point.

The sixth, an axe to head.

VexyLu continued making her way through them, towards the finish line.

The seventh, a front kick to the stomach.

The eighth was by himself. VexyLu had some time to blow, so she did guilitin (if that's how you spell it) choke on him. She released his limp body and moved on.

Madrielle and Akyra

"Madrielle," she said, smiling heartily at VexyLu as she released her grip from the handshake. "I hope you're as strong as you say, or you're not going to make it!"

 

The viking turned around, looking towards the horn sound that she had heard. Akyra seemed interested in something, and she followed the dragon's gaze.

 

"Hm. Newcomers?" Madrielle scrutinized the new riders that had shown up. "Hah! The more the merrier. It'll make it more rewarding when I finally win!"

LIKE A BOSS!!

(( There are basically hoardes of enemies, preferably Outcasts and Berserkers, coming at us from the opposite side of the field. We have to fight and get to the other sidr of the field to move on to the next round. Oh yeah, and no taking out like twenty of them in one post; that would make your character seem OP, no mary or gary sues please. Your dragon can help you, and you can slow the other competitors down like in the last round. Again, it doesn't matter which place your viking places, it doesn't effect them in any way.))

Xander and Banshee

Hoardes of enemies started flooding the battlefield, carrying various different kinds of weapons. Xander followed Ivy to the trees, but she suddenly stopped halfway there and got into a battle-ready position. Xander understood what she was doing and simply nodded to her, putting his back to her's to cover her back. Their dragons stood at their flanks, getting into fighting positions as well. Nightshade had her tails unbraided, her stingers raised. Banshee landed on the opposite side, green markings glowing brightly, preparing to lunge.
-
Xander removed his bow and pulled the string back, preparing to launch an arrow. The tip of it was coated with his Flightmare's unique green mist, which would paralyze the area it hits on contact immediately. One man decided to be the first to experience it. Xander released the arrow, watching it fly through the arrow and find its spot in the approaching man's upper leg. The enemy growled in pain, dropping his weapon. His leg started becoming immobile, paralyzed. Banshee took this as his moment to strike. He lunged at the man, jumping onto his shoulders and pinning him to the ground under his weight, clawing and biting at any exposed skin. Once the man appeared to be out, the Flightmare hopped off and threw himself at his next victim while Xander shot his paralyzing arrows.

Westra   Toothless had began

Westra  

Toothless had began the battle. Westra ran besides her companions as they raced onto the battle feild. Westra took out her slingshot and launched a pebble at a man who came to attack him. It threw off the man look enough for Westra to get to him and hit him with the handle of her ax. She watched as the man fell to the ground unconscious. Westra looked back at her teammates. "Did you see where are of the other trial members went for then I can send Geminia after them?" She asked.
