Quest:
Quest Name: Burning the Spiders Web
Quest Category: Episode
Player Participants: Cygnus Kabetogama (+0), Brood X. Bach (+0)
Planned Location(s): Spider Miles
Summary: After Cygnus accidentally destroys part of an exotic fruit market he becomes hunted by members of a local gang who operate in the area. As he fights off the men who continuously track him down he encounters a new friend and ally. But before Cygnus can leave the island he must settle the score between himself and the man who has caused him grief.

Spider Miles, The city itself is one giant factory but as Cygnus walks through the large  marketplace he can barely keep track of all the various foods and spices he smells around him. Compared to his home back on Zou this bustling market full of food and busy looking people seemed very panicked and chaotic but somehow just a little bit familiar.

As he continued through the market the comments from passing humans did not escape the dogs ears. People are louder than they think they are and Cygnus has become used to people fearing or hating him without even having a conversation with him, All of the remarks made about him had to do something with his appearance, Which ranged from plain facts to insults said to get him upset. While Cygnus might not appear very intelligent he has always been observant and able to get a good read on people's emotions.

Unexpectedly, It wasn’t the occasional insult that caught his attention. A ways in the distance Cygnus could see a short looking old man standing in front of a large cart. About a dozen men stood around the front half of the cart, All of them wearing dark suits. As the Mink walks towards the cart he can see that it holds various exotic looking fruits, with the most noticeable one being a large bluish green watermelon.

Cygnus approaches the cart slowly, careful to not bump anything as he squeezes through the crowd of smaller people. By the time he is about 25 feet away he can feel the eyes of the suited men on him, The largest of the guards staring at him more intently than the others. The old man on top of the cart however was much more friendly in comparison. The man was small in stature, about 4’6” tall and looked surprisingly toned for his age. The old man cracks a smile and makes eye contact with Cygnus, “Hey there son! I bet a large man like yourself needs to eat a lot of food, Why don’t you look around and see if you want to buy anything”

Cygnus stayed silent for a moment before laughing, “Grororo, Alright I guess I can look around just a little” The guards that were gathered around the cart created an opening for the dog to take a look at the cart. Cygnus picks up the blue melon that caught his eye earlier and asks the man, “How much is this thing? I've never seen any fruit like this before”. The old man reaches into his pocket and puts on a pair of gold colored glasses before responding, “That is one of my favorite products! I brought these watermelons all the way from the South Blue. I can’t go lower than 8 million berries on one of those, They are very rare”.

Upon hearing the price Cygnus is shocked and tries to put the watermelon back but unfortunately in his haste he hits the melon on the edge of the cart, Causing it to fall on the ground. Cygnus, immediately feeling dread and anxiety build up tries to apologize to the old man.

“Hey listen man that is my ba---”

And a second later Cygnus feels immense pain in his stomach before he is sent catapulting into the shops of the neighboring merchants. As Cygnus tries to collect himself he hears the sounds of screaming and people running from the area. Confused, He looks up and sees about half of the merchant's guards running towards him, With the other 6 men walking away with the old man. The canine thinks to himself, “It seems I won’t be able to talk my way out of this, Maybe I should back off and think of a plan”. That plan lasted a solid second before Cygnus thought of a better idea, “Ah who am I kidding? There are only six of these guys, One of them has to be able to explain what just happened”.

After deciding to stand his ground against the grunts who are currently running towards him he draws one of his swords and takes a defensive stance.

[Episode] Burning the Spiders Web. Empty Re: [Episode] Burning the Spiders Web.

OOC: (-eh is a cough; -ee is a weeze)

In order to further bond with his crew, Brood took one of his newer crew-members, the ever ravishing Erudite L. Graves, the Hangwoman, with him as he took a tour of his homeland. Brood always hated growing up on Spider Miles personally, but his love for the people there had always been on the stronger side of things. that was the primary reason that he allowed himself the opportunity to trek it back home and inject a little cash flow into the economy. While his original goal was to take this land over and rule it, it didn't fit into the larger schemes that Brood needed to undergo in order to form his criminal empire. As a result, this was the very next best thing. Brood had to learn to focus on the things that truly mattered to him and as it sat right now, the only thing that mattered was eating.

He had spent all morning with the woman and it was starting to get to the point in which they were if they didn't eat, they might succumb to hunger pains. Which was not the kind of situation you'd want a ravenous candy man rumored to engage in cannibalism to be. He had a very simple goal in mind, send off this woman to do his bidding while he tried to find a nice place for the pair to eat.

As a result, Erudite found her way to the food stalls the very moment the large canine fellow found himself being hit in the stomach. As the man seemed to make his last stand against what appeared to be local ruffians, Erudite decided it was in her best interest to just hang back and watch. though she didn't exactly appreciate the idea that this seemingly innocent fellow was about to be jumped by a force much larger than he was.

Perhaps that is what spurred her into action, or perhaps it was just a way to relieve her boredom after being forced to endure the shenanigans that her captain put her through. With a sparkle in her eye, she immediately pulled out her braided leather whip and cracked it at one of the six no-good beatniks that tried to impose their will upon the good boy. The whip hitting one of the men with enough force to send him crashing into the very food stall that they seemed to have protected. She'd run up, standing beside the large dog mink and flashed her own fangs at him momentarily. The tattoo on her forearm being that of the Primetime Pirates. "We don't usually work for free, but you seem like you really need the help. Name's Erudite. My Captain is around here somewhere." If this man was knowledgeable about the North Blue, he'd know.

Because everyone up North knew of Brood X. Bach.

"I hope you know how to use those swords. Especially if you're picking a fight here. You never know who is backing who on this shit stain of an island." She cracked her whip and brought it over her head, letting it twirl around like a lasso all the while. She really hadn't enjoyed her time here just yet and she was more than likely capable of determining what potential this man had, if any. It was clear that they came to this island for another reason beyond merely fixing the economic struggles of the people, or attempting to live through Brood's glory days. They needed to find a brand new shipwright. Especially since Desmond didn't understand a damn thing about the Dead Air and how complex all of its functions were. She didn't want that knucklehead fucking around with her baby anyway.

It had been made clear to the woman early on that if she found anyone who could fight, however, to bring them along as well. They needed to recruit more grunts and this place was full of rowdy lowlifes looking to make it out of perpetual poverty. She wouldn't assume that this mysterious man fit that bill, but he wasn't completely unarmed and he did drop into a stance that was indicated that he was trained in some way. Whether he was trained by his own hands or not, was a different situation. All that mattered now was surviving this onslaught and hoping that no reinforcements showed up. Erudite was a hell of a fighter, but she was also extremely lazy. She just wanted to sit around and get plastered all day. That was the life she dreamed of. This was fine at least.

At some point the patience of the attacks wore thin and they charged yet again, though this time she'd target two of the remaining men, leaving three for her newfound furry friend to deal with. Using her specialized whip, she'd toss it at the ankle of the man nearest to her, jerking it back and causing the man to fall backwards, who instinctively reached out for his ally causing the pair to both tumble to the ground. She'd then cartwheel forward, slamming her feet down equally upon the crotches of those men that charged her. A smirk befell her face and she'd stifle a laugh, before looking over to see how the retriever dealt with his own opposition. She had to analyze him anyway, so it was a good thing that she was just that much faster than he was. Not that she'd always be this superior.

As Cygnus stood on guard, waiting for the small group of men to attack, He heard an extremely loud cracking sound followed up by a set of lighter footsteps compared to the men directly in front of him. As the blue skinned woman stood next to him he noticed the tattoo on her forearm. While Cygnus had only been in the North Blue for a matter of weeks, everyone in the North knew of Brood X. Bach and the Primetime Pirates.

After hearing that the help he was receiving would not cost him any money he let out a small sigh of relief. The question about his swordsmanship made him realize he doesn’t even know what he is capable of. But as soon as he opened his eyes again the woman had already brought up the lasso again and was twirling it above her head.

In the short time between Erudites words to Cygnus and the second wave of attacks the golden dog thought to himself about the opportunity that had just presented itself to him. For someone like Cygnus being a part of a large crew is a dream come true, Especially one where he is allowed to have as much fun as he wants.

The large dog also thought of how wrong this entire situation had gone. Cygnus could not believe that he destroyed something that he cannot fix. If it had just been the cart he destroyed he could have built an improved one in an hour or so. But then again, maybe if he hadn’t destroyed the rare watermelon he would have never met a member of the Primetime Pirates.

In the final seconds before the attackers began to run at him again Cygnus stabbed his sabers into the ground and took off his short cloak, which he would then wrap around his waist, revealing his golden brown fur to anyone that was left in the vicinity. Cygnus wanted all of the men who inconvenienced him to remember exactly what he looked like. The canine would then pick up the sword to his right, holding it in a reverse grip as he prepared to throw it towards one of the three men that were focusing on him.

As he watched Erudite attack the two men his eyes could just barely make out the sudden movement. This display of speed gave Cygnus an idea and he readied himself to attack. As he threw the sword it traveled like a dart through the air despite being so large, It hit an attacker right above the knee causing him to fall over and let out a pained scream. When the other two men looked back for a second Cygnus picked up his second sword and sprinted towards his remaining two opponents. While running it was now apparent to see that static electricity was beginning to run from his chest and arms to his blade. This made it no surprise that when the retriever clashed swords with the second attacker that the man was suddenly electrocuted and seemingly knocked unconscious.

Although the final attacker had just seen all of his coworkers completely outmatched he was still showing absolutely zero signs of backing down. All this did for Cygnus was make him even more excited, This must have been the man who was able to send him flying so far. Seeing that the final guard was approaching him unarmed The Mink sheathed his remaining sword and remained completely still, waiting for an attack.

When the man reached him mere seconds later Cygnus still did not move as the man yelled loudly and punched him. Immediately after being hit however, Cygnus’s entire mood changed. The once happy looking dog suddenly looked angry at first but then a look of sadness and disappointment was clearly visible in his eyes.

“You created all of that buildup for an attack like that?” Cygnus said with pure amazement, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself.” Electro then began to build up in Cygnus’s right arm as the dog winded his arm back and punched the overdramatic man. The impact from the punch created an audible snapping sound as the final bodyguard flew into the old merchant's abandoned cart.

Cygnus caught his breath while walking over and recovering his first sword, which was still stuck in the first guards leg. As Cygnus took the sword ought he unsuccessfully tried to whip the blood left on his blade. After a few swings the dog gave up and sheathed his sword before looking over at Erudite, “I don’t suppose it will be easy to identify these men from the other gangs in Spider Miles?”

While it would indeed be hard for someone like Cygnus to identify the gang there was a clear symbol found on the bands all of the members wore on their left legs.

(OOC: It didn’t flow to describe but the symbol is a blue triangle with the number 3 emblazoned on it)

OOC: (-eh is a cough; -ee is a weeze)

She watched the canine in action and his movements were sloppy, though not amateurish. He had a long way to go if he was going to be a great swordsman in this world. Which, given her over-all strength, was something that she could easily speak on, not that she'd tell him directly about such a observation.

She didn't know the canine personally and he also didn't come across as being the most friendly of individuals given that he didn't even acknowledge his own name to her. The lack of honor wasn't all that strange though, she was a Pirate after-all. Might have been a bad idea to tell her his name this early on. It was a situation that she found to be totally forgivable, even if it did irk her to a small degree.

Granted, they were a little hard pressed given the current situation that was playing out between the pair and the aforementioned thugs.

As the man posed his questions to Erudite, she flourished her braided weapon with a finesse reserved for professional entertainers, whipping out with unrelenting force as the knotted end of the whip came smacking right into the closest goon's stomach. She had accomplished this feat so fast that the following three swings of her wrist might have seemed to be one fluid motion. Allowing for her opponent to be hit in several more locations, leaving a combination of welts and bruises on the opponent just moments before the other reached her.

She managed to hop back, narrowly avoiding the diagonal descent of her opponent's weapon. Looking over at the man with a look of pure elation. Raising her fingers out towards the man, she snapped her finger, causing the water in his body to send him flying backwards, head over heels.

"Why, bless your heart. I reckon I don't know much 'bout the gangs on this here island, darling. What I do know, however, is that our enemies should probably be laid out before any idle chit-chat." She'd give a wink towards the dog and it was clear that her accent suggested that she wasn't your average Fishwoman.

The strangeness of how she talked was likely attributed to her past, though it wasn't something easily discerned by those who had yet to travel the vastness of the world. For she spent most of her natural born life in the Ballywood Kingdom. Though what she did there and why she ended up here in Spider Miles was a story for another time. For now, she wanted to make short work of her opponents that stood before her. A task that she achieved handedly moments before. She didn't help the canine with his foes, however.

He didn't pay the fee so, she merely watched after kicking her opponent's asses.

The moment that he either won or lost his short engagement with these scrubs, she'd smile towards him once more, showcasing the fangs that she held in her mouth before she pushed her long hair out of her face, tucking it behind her long pointed ear.

If he had known his races, he could tell she had human features despite being a fishwoman and that would indicate to the good boy that she was a mixed breed.

"Now the best way to figure out which of these gangs has you on their shit list, we have to just ask the right people. which means you oughta head on down to the one place where shot-callers like to gather. The marina. Granted, that's all you'll get from me. I do wish you luck." She'd wave at the man with a large smile on her face. A final smile showcased itself on her face as she knelt down to loot the bodies of the men she injured.

She had to get paid somehow.

Sun Jan 31, 2021 5:21 pm
Cygnus’s ears perked up as he listened intently to the Fishwoman, Was his temporary ally a member of the Fishman Tribe? The dog had never seen one before so he could only theorize to himself. But right when the friendly mink thought to ask her for himself he remembered what had happened to the previous men who had angered her. Not to say that Cygnus was overly afraid of the women but after spending some time out of Zou he had definitely become more cautious and wary of strangers.

As the canine got ready to set his sights on the marina he turned around a final time and spoke to the fishwoman, ”Thank you for all the help Erudite”. The dog would take a few more loud steps before turning around and remembering his manners, “Oh since I think you are trustworthy I should probably tell you my name”. Cygnus looked up to the sky and smiled to himself before continuing, “My name is Cygnus Kabetogama, I am a warrior and shipwright from Zou”. After the retriever was finished speaking he would begin jogging down to the Marina.

While Cygnus made his way to the marina he could not help but wonder if any of the other members of Erudite’s crew were on the island, surely they all traveled in one big group like most pirate crews. Although the usual thoughts like this that Cygnus had were less frequent due to the fact that he had even more eyes on him as he traveled through the small streets of Spider Miles. The feelings of fear and even hatred the dog could feel projected towards him by certain people was very obnoxious but the dog could not stop and waste time when he had a score to settle. It was unusual for the swordsman to hold grudges like this but after being suddenly attacked even after giving an apology he was at his limit.

The mink did not even notice that he was at the marina until he stopped to smell the air. Cygnus kept his nose to the sky for a couple seconds as he discerned what exactly had caught his attention. The smell that had caught the dog by shock was in all actuality just a standard pastry shop. Due to how strong the smell of freshly baked food was to Cygnus it seemed likely that the establishment was right across from one of the docks that made up the large marina.

The golden’s stomach now growled, “I suppose a little snack never hurt anyone, I mean it’s not like that gang is going anywhere”. While the retriever began to stomp over to the source of the food he saw another small group of men with the same emblem on their legs. One of the men turns around as Cygnus’s footsteps get louder, “Hey that's the dog who destroyed the boss’s fruit let’s bring him back and get paid!” Cygnus almost didn’t even notice the three new attackers until they were right in front of him. The happy looking dog suddenly stopped as one of the men unsheathed a small knife, reaching down Cygnus picked him up as though he was a bag of garbage and began to absentmindedly swung the smaller man around, hitting the remaining two goons in the process.

Cygnus smiled as he walked up to the entrance of the shop and looked for a door. After a couple seconds of confusion the dog looked down and realized that he was unable to fit inside of the pastry shop. The retriever sighed and sat down, leaning against the wall while he stared out at the many large boats in the marina. The dog was lost and had no real plan on how to find the gang members or get his food. It would seem unless a miracle happened the golden would need to wait for more gang members to show themselves or the previous three to wake up.

-⁂-

She decided it was in her best interest to merely follow the man for a time. To ensure that he didn't get in any more trouble. She came to this conclusion due to the fact that he finally introduced himself and it seemed as though his laid-back attitude was a refreshing change of pace when paired up against the rest of the members of her crew. She hadn't been a crew member all that long, but she most certainly had it in mind that she'd like some variety aboard her baby, the Dead Air.

She took her time tracking the man down, of course. Observing where he was going and what he was doing. Making sure that no one was harassing the poor man on his way to apparently get some grub. She heard he was a shipwright and such knowledge was good to know, especially since the big dumbass Desmond decided that he wanted to stop working on ships and start working on music.

This left their ship without anyone to do repairs and given that this big doggy was capable of handling himself against people that didn't seem all that weak themselves, she wanted to see just how far that strength went.

It could lead to a potential alliance.

Seeing the man rag-doll more thugs brought a smile to her face. She figured that she'd go and eat with him now that he cleared the way and followed him after a short while. Much to her shock, he was too large to fit inside of the ship. Which caused the female to stifle a laugh. Approaching him, she waved to get his attention.

"Now there is a problem lots of fellas don't have sugah." She'd giggle momentarily before placing her right hand upon her hip, which she popped out for emphasis. She'd look the mink over before sighing to herself. "If'n you're hungry, we can stop on down by the open grill to the south. But you're fixin' to need to deal with your problem as soon as you can sweetie."

She figured he was smart enough to comprehend exactly what she meant by that. If he didn't deal with his issue he'd cause more criminals to target him. Since it would make him appear as though he was nothing more than easy prey. She didn't often do things pro-bono, it was against the crew motto. But she could work something out with this man if he was willing to put in both the time and the effort. It was their job to make deals, especially when they didn't get contract work in. Given that the captain had yet to set up their crew as an official privateer service... taking these on the fly contracts were the only way they made any money.

They weren't pirates after-all.

"Say... I reckon we could strike up a deal honey. You come fix up my ship for a little while, and I'll help you get rid of your little gang problem once and for all. Might be a bit sudden, but if you're really from Zou, you must have built...or been on one hell of a vessel to make it here alive." She beamed a smile at the man and smacked her hands together.

Looking over towards the horizon, she could do naught but smile as she thought of where she could go with her ship. The places they would see and the chaos they'd bring for the sake of her crew. Those were the things that drove her forward. It had been so long since the last time she set sail with a crew. Joining up with Brood gave her peace... but she had more ambitions to uncover. If she could follow this path, then perhaps it was best to pay it forward to someone whom she saw potential in.

"You don't need to go decidin' on an empty stomach now. Let's catch a bite first." She'd lower her hand towards the larger man, to help him stand regardless of if he needed the help or not.

She wasn't even sure if her hunch was good or not. This guy could have been just another joker making his way to mediocrity.

[Episode] Burning the Spiders Web. Empty Re: [Episode] Burning the Spiders Web.

The big dog was only allowed to sulk for a moment, Cygnus heard footsteps slowly getting closer and as he looked up he saw the friendly fishwoman, Erudite. The Mink listened surprisingly attentively, After all it was only natural that he should pay attention to someone that helped him out. When the woman mentioned that there was an open grill south of where they were the Mink’s face formed into a very apparent smile.

More importantly, The swordsman had to concentrate heavily when Erudite gave the retriever an offer. The deal seemed very fair to the canine, and in some ways appeared to even be a no brainer, which was convenient for the slower witted young man.

(Mini Flashback)

Back on Zou Kabetogama had always been naturally talented at building things, whether it was weapons and armor or even small boats the mink had studied all of it closely before he attempted to sail in the New World. But after his near death experience after only two days of sailing the seas he took the first chance he could to leave and flee to the Blues. In a lot of ways the golden dog was more talented at creating than just mindlessly swinging his blade.

During the two weeks it took the merchant’s ship to reach the North Blue Cygnus was given the opportunity to learn more about ship building and maintenance. The old merchant’s head bodyguard had happened to be a former shipwright. With the resources Kabe had coupled with the fact that he was unable to leave the lower decks of the ship due to Marines escorting the merchant the dog vastly increased his knowledge related to repairing large ships.

And the minks' new skills did pay off. Following Kabe’s arrival in the North Blue the canine did make almost all of his money through selling equipment, be it swords or small fishing vessels. In a way it was amusing to think that one of the few times his clumsiness showed itself would lead to him meeting some of the biggest names in the North Blue.

Kabe looked up from the ground, making eye contact with his potential crewmate. The mink takes Erudite's hand, allowing himself to be helped back up to his feet. “Hmmm. I like your thinking, No one should ever make decisions on an empty stomach Grororororo!”

After standing up fully, Cygnus looked back down at his new friend with an embarrassed smile on his face, "Uh you wouldn’t happen to know what way south is would you?”

It seemed as though it would remain a mystery if the duo was going to make it to the grill without encountering any trouble on the way.
