[PP - F16] Small Steps Forward [Boss Raid]


Takao

Recommended Posts

It looked like the remaining clan members were being spared. Players seemed to be having a rough time coping with the lost of their two allies. As the blue clad warrior apparently did nothing, the Tengkorak Clan members directive kicked in as half of them decided to attack the player. The rest remained there in order to prevent the other invaders from desecrating the remains of their shrine. It seemed that now, as the players were apparently divided, they were having much more trouble in dealing with them than in fighting their deity. As the first group of clan members attacked, their HP had decreased almost four times as much from an unknown force to them.

The leather of Takao's gloves creaked and whined as he tightly gripped the handle of his sword. The steel rasp of his sword leaving its scabbard filled whatever silence had been made by Calrex and Macradon's inaction, and jaded eyes were set upon the figures of four monsters. "Players won't be coming through here to get to the upper floors." Takao said, addressing Hikoru while he slid his feet apart and held his blade up. "At the end of the room, there's a warp gate platform. When it's activated, they'll be able to teleport directly to the settlement and won't have to go through the labyrinth." His voice was dry and monotone, as it had been for quite a while now.

The steel of his sword began to glow a bright blue with the activation of a sword art. Even if the deaths of the minions were ultimately inconsequential to the overall progress of the raid group, something was keeping him around. He wasn't sure what exactly, although he hated to see things go unfinished. So he had no intention of leaving until each of the six remaining monsters were properly slain. As such, Takao relinquished control to the system, and subsequently slammed the tip of his sword into the ground. Electricity rippled out like a wave, consuming four of the six figures and chewing away at their health until the bars lingered in the red.

So, now it was Zandras turn again. Not much have happened to the clan, except the full group was nearly dead. She looked their healthbar. She cursed her weapon for having such crazy weak AOE. She wouldnt be able to take them out, not even with that small health left. So she focused on the half group instead. She had calmed down enough to leave Teayres action behind. Would be plenty of time to think that over at ablater point. She started to rjn towards the closest clan member. But then she remembered something that would be more usefull. She took up the horn she had attached to her hip. She filled her lungs with air before she blow the horn. The loud sound echoed thru the room, much louder then such small horn would be able to do. When the sound had faded out, all of the clan members was stunned and unable to move."Now, go get them

@Ariel - The Crowned Lion!" She shouted to the blonde.

The blonde let out a sigh of relief as no one was planning on attacking Teayre, or her by association. People decided to do the most logical thing and attack the remaining mobs. Seeing as Macradom had recovered more than half his HP considering his tank-ish build, he would be ok. She reached for a different kind of crystal and used it exclusively on Teayre who appeared to be unresponsive. She looked at Calrex as he seemed pretty annoyed about a promise being broken... it wouldn't take a genius to figure out what he was referring to. But that was something the two had to sort out later. Pleased with the now green-ish health bar of her sister, Ariel looked at the remaining mobs that and gritted her teeth, tightening the grip on her rapier. "I'm tired of all these things." she muttered before taking a step towards the clan members that remained to protect the exit towards the 17th floor. In the same time the system reacted, recognizing the <<pre-motion>> for the charge sword skill and with its help, the blonde sprinted at a dazing speed towards the 4 half naked men. This time she will pay them back for chaining her and preventing her take on the monkey. A feeling of exaltation assaulted the blonde's body as she performed the simple Sword Art, performing two angular slices that start from right to left, then left to right; while her blade emitted a bluish blue arc horizontally. Only two remained... Hopefully she wouldn't have to dispatch them as well.

For not posting within the 24 hours time limit, Teayre and Hikoru have been skipped and receive 15 Damage.

The clan members seemed happy, odd as it may seem they truly believed that upon death, they will be reunited with their deity and get to eat bananas at its table. That is why the expressions of the four clan members, that got hit by the brunette one handed sword user and then by the blonde they deemed fit for a maiden sacrifice for their god, remained unchanged throughout the hits they received and even as they exploded in the pixelated death animation. That and the fact that another twin tailed girl had used a paralysis inducing horn on them. Only two of the proud Tengkorak Clan remained. Two members that had yet to die and rejoin with their deity and their friends and family. The would've acted, slice and cut at the blue armored player that did nothing this turn and at the player that first attacked the now dead group but they were bound by some unseen force... like lambs awaiting to be sacrificed, like they had planned to sacrifice the blonde girl that killed four of their brothers. Even when realizing it themselves and despite all that, they too.... were smiling.

Sword Art <<Meteor Break>> Activated / <<Charge>> Activated (11 Energy Used / 52 Remaining)

There were no exhales meant to calm his nerves this time, no logic or rational thinking that Calrex had to try and plan his approach. His mind was nearly blank at this moment, merely taking in all of what was happening around him. Ariel had struck again, following Zandra's paralyzing horn, the very horn that was given to her after the floor twelve raid.

His hand tightened around the Grand Blade II, as if he were trying to crush the handle in his grip. His eyebrows furrowed as he saw the smiles on their faces. Were he his more rational self, he would have completely disregarded it, as the creatures standing before them were mere AI. There was no ulterior motive behind their actions, just strings of commands. However, in this moment, he was not his rational self.

"Wipe those ******* smiles of your faces or I'll cut them off myself..."

Lunging forward the Ultramarine Knight triggered his <<Charge>> skill and rocketed forward at the closest clan member, simultaneously triggering <<Meteor Break>>. While the golden glow iconic of his Sword Art was there, it seemed more dull, as if lacking the luster from before. As he slammed his shoulder into the monster's gut the sinister blue light in his eyes remained locked on its face, as if waiting to see a change in its expression. This remained with each and every single one of the following ten strikes that came.

His attack complete rather than leaping back to place a significant distance, Calrex merely stood up, turned his back, and began slowly walking back towards the group, as if to goad the creatures into attacking him.

His reckless swings would go everywhere, not really hitting anything. His body wasn't responding to anything at all. After a few seconds of his mind going blank, he quickly snapped out of this trance like state. He would stop his random reckless moves for just a split second as he would get his concentration back on, his eyes determined to clear this floor. Nothing else was on his list of things to do. Cleaving 6 heavy times one the last two cultists, Macradon managed to slay the first, deleting it from the presence of others while also leaving the last cultist very damaged.

The death of its companion, didn't sadden the last remaining clan member. He wasn't even mad at Macradom for aiming at them, he gave his friend a death in a flashy way as all his clan members. But most importantly, as their god! it was sure that it would end up in the place as the monkey devil. He looked at Cal that apparently was unpleased with his joy. The last survivor of the Tengkorak clan smirked, and went to attack the tank... will he manage to deal some damage to him? Well no something to be worth mentioning. Still he swung his hammer and brought it against Calrex's armor. The sound of hammer against metal resounded through the room, similar to the echo inside a working blacksmith's shop. That one hit rebounded and the red HP bar of the clan member lost another chunk. He looked at Calrex's helmet as if defying him, he showed the man that he attacked a broad smile.

The battle was coming to an end, and only one of the original eight boss minions remained. Macradon struck it hard, yet it stayed on its feet, and even struck out at Calrex in one final attempt to deal some negligible damage. As the ape-man smiled broadly at Calrex's helm, Takao approached from Calrex's right side and reached out with his left hand. After gripping the monster by its throat, the glowing yellow sword held in his right hand was thrust forward through its stomach. The remnants of its red coloured health gauge were depleted, and the monster burst into pixels. With the last of the minions defeated, Takao shouldered the flat of his sword and slid it down into its scabbard. He turned his head and wordlessly glanced at Calrex for a moment, then switched his gaze to Teayre for another moment, and then finally turned back forward. Another new floor was to be opened, with an entirely new spectrum of challenges ahead of them.

The last of the Tengkorak Clan members had vanished, engulfed in the same flashy death animation as the rest of the humanoid NPCs and the monkey Floor Boss. The path towards the 17th floor was now, truly clear to be crossed. At the end of spiral staircase with 48 steps awaited the new floor. The clearing of a new floor, a reward for all of Aincrad thanks to the brave raid members that risked their lives, some of them even dyeing in the process even if not by NPC hands, to fight for being one step closer to clearing this floating castle. A pop up window appeared in front of each of the raid members inside of the room, almost all had received the same message, all but one.
