  1. Hikoru nodded as she said she was glad she didn't do it alone. "I have to agree with you. Back when I did it, I had someone come and help me with it. However, it took him as long as it took me, as he hadn't put any points into Martial Arts." he said with a chuckle. "I completely ran out of energy by the end of it, but we made it through." He spoke with a small smile, remembering one of the hardest missions he had to partake in. He got a ping and he saw his trade menu pop open. He read it, and just shook his head, denying the trade and giving her the item back. "There's no need to return it. Use it when you need to, but don't feel obligated to use it if you don't want to." He said with a warm smile. He looked and saw the town in the distance, and he sighed. "Alright, we're going to a place that may be a bit... sketchy at first. But, I can guarantee your safety, and i'm sure Rex would be happy to see another young face around his... establishment." He said with a chuckle. He lead the small girl to a bar near the edge of town, looking a little dinged up around the edges. The name "The Rusty Dagger" sat on a sign and was a bit crooked. He opened the door, and all eyes were on the group. Hikoru put on his persona and glared at them all, the thieves, Info Brokers, and people who could possibly be apart of Laughing Coffin, all of them met here when they needed a good drink. Rex, the bartender and shop owner, didn't care who you were as long as you had cash and you behaved yourself. "Rex, a cup of Joe and a cup of Cocoa for my young accomplice." He said in a slightly authoratative voice. Rex nodded quietly and went in the back to get them made. He sat down and offered a seat next to him at the bar for the girl, and turned his back. "Nobody will mess with you as long as your with me. These people fearfully respect me, so thats why I may seem a bit... cold." He said with a chuckle. "But this is where some of the best stuff in all of Aincrad is. Trust me, i've been to almost every bar and shop in the game."
  2. Hikoru nodded as she agreed and they started to walk down the mountain. His cloak billowing in the breeze, he saw in the corner of his eye that Rithe was sneaking glances at him. Curious, he felt his eyebrow raise a bit. "Something on your mind?" He asked simply, then focused forward. He saw that the scenery hadn't changed much. He could see the giant staircase leading upwards towards the third floor. He had climbed those once, out of sheer curiosity of how it felt to be a frontliner, clearing floors. He gave a small sigh in memory. It had been a long time since he had done that. Before he had truly become stronger than what he once was. He had been in this young girl's shoes once, and he never forgot that feeling of true terror, of feeling as if he stood no chance of surviving. But now he stood at the top, one of the biggest DPS players in the game, because he pushed himself forwards with his allies, his brothers and sisters in arms. They had all truly come a long way, and he was glad to have these memories, even if some of them weren't the best. He knew that the boss raid would be soon, and he would have to fight side by side with them again, but for now he could enjoy the feeling of calm, and enjoy the game for what it really was, a work of art.
  3. Hikoru watched as the girl punched the rock. He had done some calculations, and he realized that his punch should be good enough to finish it off. Hikoru breached in deeply, and took another pose, trying to find the comfortable style that he was going to use. His eyes narrowed as he studied the rock, focused intently on every fractal point where he had made devastating blows. The boulder has a few weak points, but the biggest seemed to be in the lower part of the right side. Strange to him, but he didn't think about it too much. He breathed in deeply, then charged forward, leaping and doing a spin in the air, landing on the ground with one foot and the other kicking right in the weak point, splitting it in half and sending the top part a few feet up. He quickly leapt up and met the rock, sending a punch straight through, and turning the rock to pixels. He landed quietly, and let go of the breath he had been holding. He turned to the young player with a smile. "There we are, I think the quest popup should appear." He said confidentally. He looked at his hands proudly. He had grown, and become stronger than that day. He signed as the memories came and went, and he looked at the girl. "I could go for a nice cup of coffee. How about you?" He asked in a sorta-goofy tone. ID: 105159 BD: 3+3= 6 Hit! Hikoru used Punch! 1+4+1+9 = 15 Damage!
  4. Hikoru waited in the shadows quietly, waiting for the right time. Soon another Council member fell to the other groups, and he chuckled to himself as he knew that they had this fight in the bag. Already they had two left, and the three left didn't seem much of a threat. He studied the remaining council members as he re-adjusted the grip on his dagger. He looked at the one with the Tarot Cards in their hand. His eyes narrowed. Thats the one that made him feel uneasy at the start of the fight, and he needed to get a little payback. He adjusted his stance, steadied his breathing and heart-rate, then charged in, leaping seemingly from nowhere and appearing behind the council member, a dagger protruding out of their chest on the other side. He felt a small chuckle form. "Did your cards see this in the future?" He finished his sword art, the leapt into its face. "Because I feel like your predictions were wrong about me." He spoke, then gave a final kick to the Tarot-Card user's jaw, sending them spiraling into the left-most wall. He landed without a sound, retreating and disappearing from sight in his group, knowing that they wouldn't be able to hit him unless they looked for him. ID: 105112 BD: 8+3-1=10 Hit! Hikoru used Swarm: 21+5+2= 28 x 14 x 1.15 = 451 - 0 = 451 Damage to Durares
  5. Hikoru shook his hand a bit more to try and regain some feeling in his hand as the young girl took another punch, dealing a small portion of damage. He just chuckled to himself. So this is how Jomei felt on that day he decided to do this. He just sighed and switched his stance, reversing it to punch with his right hand instead of his left. He didn't know how this would feel, or if it would even be seen as his Martial Arts attack, but he would find out. He wound up his shot, clenching his fist tightly as he punched forward, a shockwave of air around is hand shook and reverberated as he hit the rock with another sickening crack, another large gash going into the rock from where he hit it, and it looked as if it was going to crumble if he hit it another time. He shook his head as it still shook a bit from the hit. He wasn't used to this feeling, as he had only practiced on slimes, not something that had some real molecular structure to it. He sighed and stood back a bit, making sure to stay loose, not to tense up, to stay focused. ID: 104665 BD: 7+3= 10 Hit! Hikoru used Punch! 1+4+1+9 = 15 Damage!
  6. Hikoru watched as the young girl punched the rock, looking a little worried about how quickly he left. He mentally sighed to himself. People never understand how stealth works unless he explains it. He curled up his fist tightly, then sprang forward, attacking the boulder head on and punching right in the center. huge cracks formed in the rock as a crater surrounded where his hand was. He pulled back as a few bits and pieces of the rock chipped and cracked from where his hand was. He shook his hand a bit, chuckling to himself. "Yeah, just as hard as I remember. A little easier to deal damage to it nowadays. Weird though, I was expecting my Sword Art to activate..." He said, a bit curious. Did the Quest change in his absence? He took a mental note to add it to the file, and turned to the girl. "Good solid punch. Think you can do it for a little while longer?" He asked, curling up his fists. "Because we may be here awhile. I only get one good hit like that, not multiple. Let's make the most out of this and get a good workout." ID: 104654 BD: 7+3=10 Hit! Hikoru used Fist! 21 x 1 = 21 Damage to Boulder
  7. Hikoru watched as the young girl went into the hut, where she falls and stumbles into the hut, and the door is closed. He waited quietly while he thought about whats already happened. It was a fairly quiet way up, but she seemed cold, even though she didn't tell him that. He decided that he would need her in top condition for her to work. He started to scroll in his inventory to see if he could find anything. He heard the door open and looked up from his inventory, to the girl hiding where the mark should be. He didn't take any notice to it as he opened his inventory again. "The Boulder is nearby, trust me just take a look, give me a minute though..." He said as he continued to look through his inventory. He finally found an old piece of armor that he hadn't seen in a long time. The sketch of a white lion on the inside of the hood brought back both good and bad memories. He grit his teeth and looked away, finding where the girl went and giving a short whistle. He then tossed the armor to her, doing his best to throw it light enough to not hurt. "Here, try this on. It should be a bit warmer than what your wearing now. Sorry it's not much, but im sure it'll work for now." He said, then he looked and saw the boulder, and pointed. "There it is, now, i'm going to disappear for a few seconds, but I promise i'll be back in a flash, okay?" He stated, before putting up his cloak, and backing up into some nearby shadows, becoming engulfed and activating his stealth. He felt his cloak activate due to the snow falling and melting against his skin, the tiny amount of water adding up and soon it shimmered and he became opaque compared to the mountainside. He readied his fist, and prepared to attack the boulder. ID: 104645 LD: 5+7+4= 16 Stealth Rating Giving Rithe the Following Item:
  8. Hikoru double and triple checked his map, and made sure the road they needed to take was the shortest route. The younger player said she got lost using the navigation. He nodded and muttered a few things to himself about the roads, until he closed it, satisfied with how it came out, and it turns out there was a slightly shorter route, only 45 minutes compared to his hour travel. He set the marker onto the road and soon he saw the marker on the road. He sighed and un-equipped his dagger. He knew he wouldn't be needing it. He looked at his bare hands, and tightened them into fists. He could do this. "The navigation system can always take a minute to learn. It's mostly learning how to check your markers and make sure they aren't changing while your moving. That can happen on floors your new to, as all the quests are trying to get you to take them at once." He said with a chuckle. "Anyways, lets get moving." He said, and started to walk onto the road, his companion following. as they travelled to the peak of the mountain he did his quest at, the temperature started to drop as snow and ice started to appear on the trail. His <<Survival>> Skill activated, and soon his body gave a small hum of red over his skin, keeping him warm enough to be comfortable. He had no clue if his companion had this skill, and he looked over. "Are you warm enough? Because we could be here for awhile, and the temperature only gets colder from here." He said, a bit worried. He remembered how cold he was, and he knew it made it difficult to punch a rock. He soon saw the cabin of the older NPC that was there. He motioned toward the snow-covered steps. "Go ahead and knock, that's what starts the quest. She will put some sort of mark on your head with paint. I don't remember what color or what symbol, but it goes away after the quest is over. It's sorta like a marker to see that players are doing this quest." He instructed her. He crossed his arms and waited for her to start the quest.
  9. Hikoru listened as the girl asked for help in Breaking the Unbreakable, a quest he hadn't heard word of in awhile. His mind brought him back on the day he did it himself with another frontliner named Jomei. It took them what felt like an eternity, but they finally defeated it, and he earned the Martial Arts skill, his knuckles bruised and battered but the victory was his. He sighed and looked at his hands, which he knew had the power within him, and he had the ability to use a few ranks of the Martial Arts skill. He nodded to the young girl. "Sure, that's not a problem. Now, I will have to find the location real quick..." He opened his HUD and his map appeared, completely filled out and showing him every blip he had marked. He looked for the right marker, and found the quest area where he last remembered it, on the top of a mountain. He toggled it, and soon a small marker appeared in his vision. It was a ways away, but it wouldn't take them long to travel there. Maybe this time there would be a staircase up, instead of having to climb the sheer cliff like he had. "Alright, there. It's in this direction." He said, pointing towards the blip. "It should take us maybe 45 minutes to an hour of walking." He said with a sigh. "Ready to get your cardio in?"
  10. Hikoru listened and nodded as they spoke their minds. He sipped on his coffee quietly, and pondered over their words. He sighed as he just chuckled, and shook his head. "You know, for a long time I thought what I wanted to be was strong, able to hold my own with the rest of the frontliners, be seen as a strong ally, that's what I thought I was. But, I guess I was wrong..." He smiled. "To be strong is one thing, but to be happy... That takes a lot..." His smile started to fade a bit. "The only people able to make me happy were Ariel... Who betrayed me... and.... Vale... We, were very close, and I almost asked her to marry me... But, she broke contact with me. She, isn't even on my friends list. I know she's not dead, ever since I noticed she was gone, i've gone to the monument every day, making sure her name wasn't crosses out..." He sighed sadly. "I don't know what happened, or if I caused her to be angry at something I may or may not have done... But, I don't think she wants to see me again... And it hurts, but i've accepted it..." He chuckled. "I guess another curse of a Unique Skill is being forever single, but I don't think that's it, as Calrex has Teayre..." He sighed and just shrugged a bit. "Sorry, i'm getting into more personal stuff of mine. Lets change the subject a bit." He sighed. "I really don't know what to talk about that isn't depressive at all however, it's been difficult not to be in my situation..."
  11. Hikoru walked along the second floor, his inventory filled with the needed supplies for his Info Brokers. They had run low and somebody needed to run for them at their supplier on the 2nd floor, and he has picked the short straw. It had cost him a pretty penny to get the high quality supplies that they used, but they would last them for another month. He had decided against wearing his hood up today, as it was mostly people that didn't know his character. His steely gray gaze still landed on some and they looked away, but he knew that his face could be a bit intimidating to some. He was used to it by now, but he wished it wasn't like that. He was still trying to complete the design on his new wardrobe mentally, when he was stopped by a younger-looking girl. She spoke up, but she seemed to be visibally shaking in his eyes, the terror easy to read on her face. She seemed innocent enough, but by the look of her armor, he could tell she was a low-levelled player, probably Tier 1 if he wanted to put money on it. He nodded as he looked at the time. "Uh, sure, I suppose. I have a few hours to kill before I have to deliver... Anyways, what can I help you with?" He asked. Usually, he wouldn't do that and be on his way, but he needed to take the right steps forward, and try to be more open and helpful to players. He shrugged off his fears of being ambushed, as he could easily escape and get out of the area. He awaited a reply quietly, trying to look a little friendlier than before.
  12. Hikoru x Shadow Doors
  13. Hikoru watched as Ratar was quickly taken out, but not before a last hoorah. He threw some sort of potions, and a green blob, along with a large mist coated the first party. He knew that it wouldn't be good for him to be caught up in that. He looked at the remaining council, and knew that he could get more damage if he went back into the shadows, as much as he didnt want to. He breathed in deeply and pulled up his cloak. He hoped for the best as he retreated back behind his group, who were all gaining hate and gaining their attention. Since most of them had more hate, they would talk the most damage. He had a safeguard in case any of the creatures tried to hit him with an AoE, but he felt like it wouldn't matter, except the one that can seem to ignore hate, so he would avoid hitting that one until later. For now, he decided to try and strike the one that seemed to be the biggest threat to the bunch, the one with that card deck. He crouched down low, making sure to stay out of the way as he waited for the oppertune strike to hit their foes. ID: 103556 LD: 9 + 7 + 1 = 17 Stats:
  14. Hikoru waited for the doors to open, and the council appeared. Pretty soon two of them locked eyes on him, staring into his soul as they had seen him. His worst fear had been realized: the Bosses had the ability to detect for stealth. Luckily for him, the other three hadn't seen him. Hidden spoke in his direction to attack the one that held a dagger on his belt, and used it effectively. He nodded silently, and waited for her to strike, then went for his own attack. He leapt into the air, flipping and appearing behind the large elf. He stabbed from behind into his heart. "It seems I have a fanbase. Maybe you should try harder, because you don't seem much to me." he spoke, before he finished his sword art, then kicked the creature in the face. "Know your place, you prick." he spoke as he landed the final blow, essentially using his face as a springboard and backflipped to the group, landing next to Hidden and the rest of the group silently.

  15. Hikoru received a few items from Zandra, and he got up from where he was and accepted the items. He nodded in appreciation, then chugged the items at hand. He also brought out the Trolls blood he found, and he gagged a bit thinking about it, but he drank it. The blood actually had a bit of a sweet, but tangy taste to it, and he was a bit suprised by the taste. He finished it off and looked back to where he was. He had found a decently quiet area compared to the others, and it was near the group he would be fighting with. He nodded to himself a bit proudly, then made his way back. He had been able to stay in stealth, so it seemed the the potions had floated away and been drank on his way back, but he knew that the others would know that it was just him, doing his thing that everyone knew he did. Consumed +45 MIT Potion, +3 DMG Potion, Safeguard, and +2 DMG Trolls Blood
