Contests always made them a little nervous, and this was the weirdest one yet. The hall was filled with strange creatures, many of which Silver had never seen before. Many of them were terrifying combinations of flesh and exposed bone. They couldn't help but wonder how the creatures came to be that way. Were they born like that? Cursed with powerful magic? Whatever the case, they made for some tough competition.
Silver looked down at the ball of smoke they had brought with them. It was a strange creature that they never were able to really figure out. It seemed happy enough, though, so they just let it do its thing. If they were honest, they had no idea what to expect from a 'Freak Show,' so they showed up a little underprepared. "Well, what do you think?" Silver asked Squall. Its vacant gaze didn't give any hint as to what it was thinking. "Me, too," Silver said with a laugh. They ushered Squall out onto the stage and hoped for the best.

The contest hall needed a lit of modifications to be able to host the next contestant. Ashe had, on occasion, brought a ploathor as a contestant in previous contests and he'd gotten things set up beforehand. Now, all they had to do was draw back a section of floor and it revealed the large tank of water underneath. It took up half the show ring, leaving enough of a place for Ashe to stand and walk around the edges of the center tank. The water appeared to be a dark blue, and occasional waves hinted at something hiding in the depths. Ashe stood at attention and waited, watching. Then he turned to the audience and addressed them.
"Ladies and gentlemen! Meet the one and only, Cezar the Pliathor! His looks may be quite scary, but don't fret! He can't reach you clear over there, and he's stuck in this tank! But do try to be quiet. If he's startled, he might slime you..."
And with a mighty groan of a beast from the depths, the two headed pliathot reared out of the water.
[Male orbaru please]
If I had a heart, I could love you, If I had a voice, I would sing. After the night when I wake up, I'll see what tomorrow brings.
Riku: I appreciate that.

Silver: Yea over time I realized that people either ignored or resented a lot of the lore anyway, so I've mostly just figured, eh, if you want to play, do what you want. I'd rather have you around than yell at you for your plot points.

Alma: If it helps, this version feels like it changed/removed a lot of the old fluff and is a great deal more free-form now. Could probably make up whatever to make your OC's reach the city and fit in somewhat so long as they aren't from something like Halo.

Yang: i feel like its a real challenge to bring in OC's when the Story-story of the labs is a big 'ol question mark; i get the idea/Sense of the labs' story; to make beasts that are Cool and Powerful, but beyond that its all '? ? ?' ; to me atleast :B

Kadin: Hah, same, I still haven't finished Kadin's intro back to the labs plot area thread even tho I've been back for months now
Apr 12, 2021 7:26:36 GMT -6
Silver: To be honest, I write most of my prologues much later, if ever haha.
Apr 11, 2021 21:52:35 GMT -6
Riku: A lot of my pets have prologues that need to be written still.....but I could technically write those later as flashbacks in the plot area.
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:34 GMT -6
Riku: I look forward to seeing stuff come about. Long-plans for six months to a year or two in the future are things I'm open to!
Apr 11, 2021 21:06:00 GMT -6
Riku: I love Alma's ideas for the boss fights. I'd really enjoy participating, but I just don't know if I'm currently qualified with my very little actual training experience and lack of muse lately...
Apr 11, 2021 21:05:30 GMT -6
Kadin: ... Heck, I should train up SEVERAL teams of gallor, lol
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:31 GMT -6
Kadin: I'd like to train a group of vulti or other pets up in the future, but I'll probs run the fights with my currently trained pets, too, until those others are trained up
Apr 11, 2021 20:07:09 GMT -6
Noa: I doubt anyone is gonna want to tag team with me anyhow XD
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:25 GMT -6
Noa: I'll probably be solo-ing the Pit ones, at least... Mostly because I'm not as interested in the points as I am in gaining levels on specific pets. And since my PLs are so high, I'd bring down the point earnings, so
Apr 11, 2021 0:13:16 GMT -6
Riku: Maybe that can be one of the 'bosses'. Like a group of Vulti.
Apr 10, 2021 19:49:54 GMT -6
Jack: Yeah I really liked the idea.
Apr 10, 2021 19:12:13 GMT -6
Alma: I really like the idea of pack instincts coming into play with a pack of beasts that can be seen as thematically linked to a boss. XD
Apr 10, 2021 19:08:50 GMT -6
Alma: I figure most players will want to solo through a few fights with their stronger pets first, if for no other reason than to make the fights go faster, but I'll probably ask around for that sort of team again later.
Apr 10, 2021 19:07:49 GMT -6
Jack: I'm thinking of throwing a couple of Sarane at the Wiurn, but I'm liking your ideas you posted! I'm totally game for it, to be honest.
Apr 10, 2021 16:47:58 GMT -6
Alma: Anyone have any plans for their teams?
Apr 10, 2021 16:41:06 GMT -6
Alma: The boss system looks pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing more fights in it.
