    (PP-F3) Maze of the Minos <<Search for the Hoya>>

    Benjamin tried to hide how much he was shaking as they got closer to the center of the maze. The adrenaline had worn off from the last fight, and now he was beginning to fill up with nervous energy as they focused on getting out of here in one piece. "I can't believe that you get into fights like this so often- I haven't done any big quests with all this combat before. Mostly it's just gathering and making things..." he said as he thought back to his last few quests into the wild. "I'm never going to complain about those walks being boring ever again." "Actually, once we get to the center we could just teleport on out. Though that's expensive, so I suppose we can use the same strategy as when we came in, and just pick a route towards the edge of the maze and follow it." he pondered as the three of them walked on their path. "Once you see something that looks like the center we can figure it out from there- we don't know what it will look like until we get there." @Dazia

    "I... think so? We should be getting somewhat close to the center by now with both of those minotaurs down, though I have no idea how many we actually have running around in here. For all we know there's a whole herd of them running around in here." he said before pausing. "Actually, are they called a herd? No no never mind, that's not important." He looked over in the direction that Dazia had pointed and considered it. Seemed like the best way to go was the opposite one they had come from. "OK, we have a path to go in. Um, though I will let you lead again, seeing as you're the one who kicks monster butt out here. Me and Yinangi will back you up from the back." He blushed a bit at this, but really wouldn't be much help if another monster came from the front. His skills were mostly the healing abilities that he had and the large amount of items that he could craft, not his swords. @Dazia

    "Y-yea.... I'm glad it was. I got a bit worried there when you were hit- I thought you might be in some trouble. Guess I should have known you'd pull through." Ben said as he breathed a sigh of relief. "Usually I like playing the support in these adventures, but this game makes me really nervous when it's my friends getting injured like that." He looked over at Yinangi, who was still behind him, to check if she was still there as well. At least everyone is in one piece. Though they were still in the middle of this weird maze. "Um, so gals, I might need a little help re-orienting myself after that fight. I kind of lost track of which way we came from." he said as he looked around for any familiar landmarks, hoping that they hadn't gotten themselves lost again. That would be quite bad if they had to wander around here any more than they had to. @Dazia

    Ben breathed a sigh of relief as Dazia's strike dug into the back of the Minotaur, taking a huge chunk of health off of it with a single blow, and allowing Ben to dance around as it tried to keep track of both of them at once as he put more blows into the huge bulk presented to him. Each of the strikes with his dagger didn't do much damage each, but it ticked the monster down to the red in its health quickly enough. Ben's smile quickly faded as that helped the Minotaur made up his mind, and smashed it's huge club towards the back of the maze, catching Dazia off guard and slicing off a chunk of her health as she was tossed back. Ben gritted his teeth at that- no monster was going to hurt his friend like that, and get away with it. Dazia... please be OK. he thought as he struck again, trying to pull the enemy in his direction again. -------------- +2 EN at turn start ID# 105793 BD: 5+1=6, HIT Ben uses Round Accel sword art (BD 5+1=6) Hit!

    Ben kept himself and Yinangi quiet and still. Dazia hadn't given the signal yet... it looked like something had gone wrong. Yinangi, stay here and don't move. I'll be right back. Ben told her as he crept out of the alcove. His weapon was readied, but shaking a bit. His hope that it was just his nerves was dashed when he came across the sight of the second Minotaur, it's massive bulk towering above Dazia as she pressed against the wall. Without thinking, he threw himself into a run at the monster driving his weapon deep into its back as he let out a wild scream. The monster bellowed back, swinging wildly to try and return the favor, only to find that Ben's sword art had slowed it down. Ben quickly took a few steps back as the enraged beast turned its full attention on him. At least we have it surrounded now... he tried to joke with a shaky laugh. Though I will mention my healing abilities can't actually be used on myself... --------------- Combat: (Combat die roll ID 104108) Ben uses Side bite sword art (BD 5+1=6) Hit! Minotaur is Stunned!

    (OOC- go for it. That sounds fun.) They walked through more of the turns in the maze, Ben's feet getting tired as he did so. He was really nervous and strained as he walked, watching each turn for new dangers. When Dazia went to scout ahead, Ben nodded in agreement. Good luck. We'll stay back here waiting. he whispered as she left, sliding back into one of the alcoves to stay hidden. He signaled for Yinangi to come back there as well instead of just looking out there. The minotaur's steps grew ever closer with each second, Ben held his breath, trying to stay as quiet as he possibly could. He could hear the thumping of his heart, the slight shake as his weapon vibrated in his hand, and even his familiar hiding under his scarf. At least he was hiding quietly. He really hoped that Dazia could pull this off- getting themselves knocked around by another minotaur would be way too risky this far into the dungeon. @Dazia

    Ben looked down at Kasier, finally lightening up a bit. She was opening up now, which at least meant that she wanted to talk. It was an improvement at least. Well, I'm not sure that's the way I see it. We are playing an RPG after all- it just means that the tougher things get, the more we have to grind to ease up the difficulty again. Not an easy task- eventually we would be trading weeks of our lives for just the slimmest boosts- but it can be done. he said with a brave face. Even with the cowardly PKers around- and they are cowards who mostly to attack players much lower level or alone- we have a lot of good people on the front line, risking themselves to push us on towards the top. I've seen the strength that players show here- not from themselves, or their own ambitions, but from the goals they have together. As guilds, and friends, working as a team. @Kasier

    Ben stopped moving towards her for a few seconds, trying to find the words to say. That's... a lot. I haven't actually seen any of the things the PK guilds have been up to. Just the names of the monument of life that keep appearing. Ben sat near the cliff, still away from the edge and too her side as he thought about all it took to bring him out of the town. I haven't been out in the world long enough to have anyone I really care for- or even know- die yet. Seeing that many people at once... he shifted around, trying to think how he would feel losing a friend in here. I wish we had someone in town we could talk to and help everyone get their heads sorted out. But right now we just have our friends to watch our backs. Maybe... instead of being out here, you should think about talking with some of them? @Kasier

    Ben watched as the girl by the cliff sat up. She was still looking very melancholy, but was at least talking. I, um, well I don't know, but I don't think the game was supposed to be a death game from the very start. I mean, with all the money that was poured into making it, there was probably a lot of people who were trying to make a nice beautiful game before the whole thing got hijacked. I mean, um, sorry, I tend to over analyze things a lot. he said, just putting out the first things he could think of to try and keep her attention. As Ben spoke, he started to scooch up to the ledge with her. It was still really scary to get there, and he didn't want to look down at all, but the other choice was leaving someone on the edge by herself, and he wasn't about to do that. Especially when it looked like she was going to start crying. Well, how about you tell me about your fears then? It must be pretty bad if it's worse than a cliff like this... he said with his voice breaking a bit, still not looking at the big scary drop. Please? @Kasier

    [PP-F06] <Deforestation> Trial by Fire

    He gave Shield a nod. Yea, I would like to try and make a difference if I could. There's too much trouble as it is, and everyone wants to be the hero. Seems like nobody wants to be the guy helping make sure the heroes get home safely. And that's especially true now that I have some friends out there fighting. Ben leapt back when the large cat-like animal burst out from the area, charging at Shield with it's first attack. It took him a few seconds to register that he was supposed to be doing something here. OK, um, I got it Shield. I'll hit it from the side. he said with a bit of trepidation. It may be wide open, but it was still a huge monster that he didn't want to get anywhere near. And as he swung his blade at the monster's open side, a huge bloom of fire erupted from the attacks that were bouncing off Shield's armor, knocking him off balance and pushing Ben back. He gathered himself for another charge at it, hopefully more successful next time. Battle Ready Items: Combat: @Shield

    Benjamin had started to regret his decision to explore the sixth floor once again. It's not that he didn't need the materials, but the mountainous area that looked like it could have all the mats that he needed so far had only proven to have a lot of exercise. He let out another frustrated sigh. As he passed over the next ridge though, he spied a girl sitting on the edge of the cliff. It was a look he had seen too many times before in the Town Of Beginnings- someone who had been staring off the side long enough to think about jumping. He had seen a lot of players try and talk others down from those thoughts- sometimes successfully- but it didn't look like there was anyone else around here today. He approached the area she was lying at, trying not to look too threatening. With his dirt covered clothes, covered in rocks and burrs from the climb, he probably didn't need to bother though. Hey, um, hi there miss. Are you OK over there? he asked, a worried look crossing over his face. It's a nice view here, though I'm not much of a fan of heights myself.

    The time has come

    I would like to help out as well, even if I am really low level myself. I do have healing abilities if that will help- and tons of uncommon items from my crafting that nobody will buy from my shop. Hopefully I can be an asset.
