PostSubject: Escape From Underworld Battle Arena [plot]   Sat Apr 26, 2014 2:58 pm

((Takes place Sunday, week 16))

Seven people find themselves lying around a cold boxed cell with titanium walls. On one side where a wall should have been were instead iron bars glowing red with heat. A set of iron bars crossed over the opening both horizontally and vertically, leaving leaving only enough open space between the bars to fit a hand through.

Everyone was clothed in their casual attire and their weapon was lying on the ground nearby where they could see it once they awaken. The only oddity was a thick metal collar around their necks, each one with a little monitor at the front glowing a bright red.

Jacob groaned, stirring slightly. There was a dull ache in his ribs, they didn't feel broken. With a grunt he forced himself onto his hands and knees. He tilted his head to one side to straighten out the kink in his neck, only to find the collar fastened around his neck. Panic struck him, he reached up and clutched at the device
"No" he gasped, he gritted his teeth and tried to tug the device free, but it was to no avail. There were other bodies in the room, all breathing, all wearing the same collars that he was, suggesting that they were all in the same boat. "Everyone ok?" he wheezed, clutching his ribs and wincing. Something was wrong, he shouldn't have been in as much pain as he was, admittedly it wasn't too bad, it was more the shock of taking the injury in the first place that had him rattled.

Aurelia slowly cracked her eyes open to return to a cold room that didn't feel familiar to her. Rubbing her forehead, she slowly raised herself into a sitting position. "How much did I drink last night?" She hummed to herself, her mouth apparently unwilling to move yet. As her eyes began to focus, she quickly realized that something was wrong. She shook her head, tearing away at her tiredness and looked at the room more clearly. One, two, three...six other people in a room with some glowing bars on one side. "What the hell...?" Aurelia's voice was quiet. She slowly slid a hand onto one side of her neck. The foreign object surprised her into mild shock, and as she looked for a way to take it off, she found none. She was swearing to herself when she heard another voice speak up.

"Huh? I'm doin' fine over here. You don't sound so hot yourself, though. Where are we?"

"No idea" Jacob grunted, lifting his nose to the air, using his wolf like sense of smell to try and figure out where they were. There was nothing familiar in the scent of this place, save for the overpowering scent of blood and death from just beyond the cell "something's not right" he muttered. He got to his feet, retrieving Jernulv and walking over to the only other person in the room that seemed to be awake. He stood over the girl,s and gave her a brief smile, before offering her a hand to get up.

Nero awoke as others did. Looking around, he could see his weapon next to him. Everybody else had their weapons as well. From this alone, he could tell that they were not necessarily imprisoned, for what jailer would be foolish enough to leave them with their weapons? Seeing a wolf faunus tugging at a collar around his neck, Nero became aware of the one around his. Similarly, he pulled at his, but he quickly decided that it'd best be left alone.

He grabbed his weapon, stood up, and walked towards the iron bars holding them in. Without touching them, he peered out beyond the bars. There was nothing meaningful that he could see, but he couldn't help but notice the familiar stench of blood and sweat.

The world was a blur of light and pain for Alicia, sounds swimming around her head and blurred light stabbing painfully at her eyes. Her head pounded with every heartbeat, and she didn't dare move yet.
It took her a moment to muster up the courage to sit up, slumping uncomfortably against a cool metal(?) wall. Her wings splayed out to either side of her, laying limp on the floor, twitching with the horrible discomfort of mussed and bent feathers. Her vision swam when she opened her eyes, and a voice, saying things she couldn't understand, made her clutch her head in pain, ducking it between her drawn-up knees.
When finally her vision stopped swimming, she squinted around the room, absently checking herself for injuries. But instead of broken bones, she found a thick metal... collar around her neck.
That sent her into full alertness, ignoring the gut-wrenching pain in her head as she clawed at the thing, trying to find a way to get it off and finding none. She glanced around the room in a panic, seeing that there were... six other people with her, and red hot bars to one side. All of the people -one she recognized and five she didn't- had the same collars. There were also weapons scattered about, and she snatched Hiljainen as soon as it came into focus, clutching it like it was the key to immortality.
Suddenly angry, she ignored the others in the cell and stood, having to lean on the wall a moment when the sudden motion made her dizzy.
"Okay what the &@$# is this, some kind of sick joke?!" She screamed at nothing and no one in particular.

Aurelia graciously accepted Jacob's offer and grabbed her weapon laying beside her as she stood up. She grunted out a "Thanks" before doing some quick stretches. It was then when somebody started to scream in the cell. Aurelia jumped up having been surprised by it and instinctively made her weapon into a staff and pointed at the source of the noise. Realizing that it was a woman that didn't seem to be hostile, hesitated for a moment before she retracted her weapon and sighed. "Hopefully the other three actually wake up from that."

Tiru groaned and sat up, giving himself a minute to take in his surroundings. He was in a metal cell, with the Lights next to him, and a thick metal collar around his neck. In the cell were six others, all complete strangers to him. Where one wall of the cell would have been stood a series of crisscrossing metal bars. He could only guess that they were superheated due to the red glow that they gave off. Without a word, Tiru got to his feet, picking up the pair of blades in the process and checking them. They showed no exterior damage, and when he ignited them, they performed as they always had. Why would... Who leaves a person in a cell with their weapons undamaged, let alone seven? Shaking his head, the grey wolf deactivated and sheathed the pair of blades on his belt before leaning on a nearby wall. "Well. This is... Anyone have any idea what the hell is going on?"

Emerald had been awake since the first few people started waking up, he just hadn't opened his eyes. When he awoke, he immediately felt the cold floor underneath him, and the metal collar around his neck, so he kept his eyes shut. Well, I'm not in the dorm, that's for sure. Did you even get back to the dorm last night? I'm not sure, I can't remember last night. Can any of you? No. Nope. Nah. Not one bit, compadre. Thought so. Well, I have a collar on my neck. Maybe you just got drunk and met a woman who is into some pretty weird stuff. You know I don't drink. Just an idea, I'm trying to lighten the mood.

Ignoring Almandine's annoying brainstorming, Emerald opens his eyes just enough to see in front of him, yet closed enough so someone wouldn't notice they were open unless they were staring at his eyelids as he opened them. Seeing Caritatis and Răbdare in front of him, he thinks, Well at least I'm not defenseless. Why would someone leave you your weapons? I'm not sure, yet. Let's start hacking and slashing! Why would I do that? Because there are others in this room. Amethyst was referring to the humanoid figures that were past Emerald's weapons. They were too far to give detail for the limited vision that Emerald's eyelids were allowing at the moment. I won't attack unless given reason to, but I'll quickly get up and equip my weaponry once I open my eyes furthe—

At this point Alicia started screaming. Emerald thinks, Well, looks like you're not the only one in this situation. Seems like it. Maybe you all met a woman who is into some very weird stuff. Will you quit it with that joke? Odds are, probably not. In one fluid motion, Emerald opens his eyes, grabs his weapons, putting Caritatis in its sheath and equipping Răbdare onto his right hand, and stands up. Looking over the other cellmates, Emerald notices the collars and the hot-bar wall. He thinks, So we're all in the same boat here. Can we still fight them? No. Dag nabbit.

Answering the questions in the room, Emerald says, "It's obvious we've all been kidnapped, thought the reason for it I'm not 100 percent sure on." Looking down at Răbdare he continues, "Since we've been given our weapons, we must be here either for an experiment or for someone's entertainment of us fighting something or someone." Sitting down against a cold wall he says, "I'd recommend saving your energy and not screaming. You never know when you might need it." In his head he hears, I hope we get to fight something! I'm gonna guess we aren't getting any food soon, then. Oh great, we'll leave the team alone again! Bianca, Terra, and Adhira will be worried! Could you be any more boring with your explanations? Shut up.

Alicia ignored the neutral activity around her as her anxiety built. She was in a cage. A literal cage. And wearing a collar like some sick version of a pet. The bars looked superheated, she was trapped with six other people for who knew what sick purpose, with no idea how she had gotten here. The pounding headache suggested a head injury, but she hadn't found any swelling, so maybe she'd been knocked out with chemicals? Hell, the last thing she remembered was leaving campus in her full combat garb -which was still on her, thank god- and then waking up here.
Her feathers puffed up and her wings twitched, and she had a chance to see just how bad of a condition they were really in; there were bent and even broken feathers, and most of them were out of place, laying where they didn't belong and causing her great discomfort, even some pain. Her tail feathers weren't much better. Well, there had definitely been a struggle, her feathers looked like they'd been rubbed the wrong way with a brick. Or maybe she'd been dragged?
It was then that another voice joined the neutral background, and without thinking, Alicia whirled on him, detaching one of Hiljainen's blades and holding it out like an axehead without the handle. "Don't you #$@&ing try to tell me what to do, asshole!"
Her eyes were blown, and her head was pounding with nauseating intensity, and she could only hold her blade out for a moment before she came to her senses and put it away, turning away and mumbling profanity under her breath.
Knowing she had to calm herself down somehow, she sat back where she'd been laying moments before and spread one wing out, just far enough to start working her feathers back into place. The process was therapeutic for her, and yelling wasn't helping her headache anyway.

Emerald tilts his head when Alicia threatens him. Alright a fight! Feisty, ain't she? Clearly doesn't understand advice when it's given. Great, not an hour and someone already hates you. Emerald responds as she turns around, "I didn't realize that giving helpful advice was called being an asshole. I'll make sure to remember that." He hears in his head, That sounds sarcastic. Are you being sarcastic? Drat. No fight. I WANT TO FIGHT! Quiet, you're giving me a headache.

Tiru shrugged upon hearing the boy's theory on what happened. That... Actually makes a lot more sense than it should. He was about to open his mouth to reply, when one of his cellmates began screaming bloody murder, only to be shut up by the boy who had offered an explanation. Shaking his head, Tiru then opened his mouth to speak. "So, this is all basically some sick game?" he started, before drawing the Dancing Lights, inspecting them once more. "I guess we'd better play till we can figure a way out of this." he said, motioning to the superheated bars with Aurora and his collar with Boreal. Wait... Superheated bars? The hotter a metal is, the more malleable it is... "Hmm... Would it be wrong to assume that those bars would be relatively easy to cut through? Superheated metals should be far more malleable than normal..."

"It's not a sick game," Nero muttered to the others while still looking outside the cell. "These are the Death Games." He turned to the rest of the group. "It's a real and profitable underground industry, and I doubt the people running it would risk an investment like us simply cutting through their malleable superheated bars." Nero knew this from his own experience, but he neglected to tell the others this history.

"Death games?" Jacobs ears pricked up, something familiar striking him. When he had participated in the Grimmskull tournament, they'd made him wear a collar to weaken his semblance to make for a more entertaining fight. "If you're right, that means these are probably Semblance inhibitor collars" Jacob grunted, tapping the collar around his neck. He hefted Jernulv onto his shoulder and trudged over to the bars. With a snarl, he swung the axe hard into the bars, the weapon rebounded with a loud clang the attack ineffective despite the force he had applied to it. "And it doesn't look like the bars are malleable" Jacob added, turning to the other wolf."

Alicia looked up from tending her sore wings, narrowed eyes flickering between Jacob (who she was not exactly excited to be locked up with in the first place) and another guy (Nero) as they speculated about what this was and why they all wore collars.
Rolling her eyes, she glared up at them both. "'Death games'? 'Semblance inhibitor collars'? Does none of that resonate as a 'sick game' to anyone?"

Matthias stirred as he came to his senses. His ears were ringing, and he had a massive headache. As his vision began to focus, he noticed that he was not alone. Noticing that everyone else bore a strange device on their neck, he checked his to discover what felt too much like a collar. Very funny, asshole. Collar the faunus. Quietly, he picked up Pride and Prejudice and strapped them onto his wrists. Attempting to not draw attention to himself, he turned around to face the wall closest to him and gave it a slight knock. Damn. Sounds pretty thick, although it wouldn't hurt to try. Pulling his goggles over his eyes, he readied his left gauntlet and fired the flamethrower in an attempt to weld through the wall. He stopped firing almost immediately, as the wall appeared to hold firm. "Welp, I tried," he said with an exasperated sigh. He collapsed to the floor and watched as the others attempted to think their way out of the situation.

Upon hearing Alicia's comments, Nero looked at her. He was gripped by a sudden combination of abject contempt and patronizing pity for the winged faunus. He wanted to say something in response, but he decided that it was not worth the effort. Nero turned back towards the cell bars and continued to look outside in anticipation of what was to come, a degree of sweet reminiscence coloring the general apprehension.

Emerald, having no care of any consequences says, "Sick game, it may be. However, we have no way of knowing where we are or who is keeping us." He leans back against the wall and puts his hands behind his head. "So we might as well sit back and wait until something happens," he says, closing his eyes. He hears inside his head, Sleep? No. It's best to be ready when something happens. Aww. You're certainly being antagonizing today. Can you blame him? Being trapped in here certainly isn't the best thing to wake up to in the morning.

"So, recap. We have no connection to our semblance. We are being forced to participate in this sick game, or I assume we die anyway. I agree with him." Tiru said, motioning to Emerald with Aurora before sheathing the Dancing Lights. "Wait till we find out more about our situation. Then we figure out a way out of it. Can't do too much about this now." It was then that Tiru saw a burst of flame from the corner of his eye, noting that the last of them had finally woken up. Note to self. Metal has a high melting point. Likely Titatium, or some form of alloy. Bars are as sturdy, but can retain heat much better. Definitely an alloy.

Opening his eyes, Emerald says, "Alright. What's with you people already assuming the collars affect semblances? Where is your proof? One guy made a random assumption, and you went with it. Did anyone actually try using their semblance?" In his head he hears, You could summon one of us, and see for yourself. I'm not wasting aura. Come on! I want to get to some fighting! Why won't you? If your so set on questioning it, why not try it yourself? Don't you remember what happened in Wonderland? We trusted someone's random idea, and they were wrong. I don't want to have to deal with that again. Hearing no response from his 'advisers', Emerald waits for his cellmates to answer.

With her mind still a bit dazed, Aurelia was having a some trouble following the conversation when something caught her ears. "Wait, the death games? I got caught by those mother-" Her voice trailed for a bit as she began to plot against her kidnappers. After setting up a skeleton of a plan, she decided to chime into the conversation. "While it is true that the optimal choice is to sit here and wait, I imagine that we could try to break the bars even if it is a reckless move. Perhaps somebody could even test the semblance hypothesis on breaking the bars!" Aurelia said that last part half-jokingly before shrugging as if she were all out of ideas after tossing out that one. She put a finger between her neck and the collar again curious as to what it actually did. She would do it herself* but she was more interested in the abilities of the other prisoners. There are a couple that seem to be similar to my age, but the others are relatively young. Surely they must be pretty decent if they got thrown into here.

Matthias's ears perked up. "To be fair, my semblance won't work in here anyway," he chimed in with a shrug, pulling his goggles down to his neck. Sick game? Weapons in our cell? Now that I think about it, this can't be a jail cell. "I thought we had just been arrested, but you people think it's some kind of 'death game', huh?" he added half under his breath. "I might be able to break through those bars. If I froze them, they might shatter from the severe temperature change," he suggested. The gears in his mind continued to turn. C'mon Matthias, think. Where were you last night? Or was it two nights ago? How long was I out anyway?

Tiru paused, weighing his options. They could stay here and gather a bit more info... Or get the hell out then and there, venturing into an unknown structure and hoping for the best. Wait? Or get the **** out... "Once we have better idea of what is going on, then do it. If the bars don't shatter, they would under a few bursts of D-EM fire." Tiru said, drawing Boreal and shifting it into SMG mode. "If we go through with this, there aint no turning back, though."

Alicia half-listened to the conversation around her and gave an exaggerated sigh. "If no one's going to test anything, then I'll do it."
Her preening, which was nowhere near done, had caused several feathers to fall out, collecting on the floor beneath her. She chose a small pattern one (AKA it had some structure and wasn't just a down feather) and picked it up, holding it like a pencil. She aimed at the opposite was and tried to 'charge' it with momentum using her semblance. However, she felt a weird blockage, like trying to sneeze but not being able to, only in her core, strange as it sounded. When she threw the feather, instead of speeding forward like a dart, it travelled barely a foot before it was caught by it's own light weight and drag and floated gently to the floor again.
Frowning, Alicia snapped her fingers angrily. "Well, one of you was right, Semblances don't work in here. I have no way of knowing if it's the collar or not, though."
Caught up in some emotion between ire and disappointment, she glanced around the room to the others trying to find a way out. One guy had tried burning through the wall or something, and Alicia had very nearly chastised him for using fire in such close quarters. Oh, and now it sounded like another guy was warning them against trying to escape.
Turning to the guy (Tiru), Alicia raised an eyebrow and chided, "No turning back? Just try to break the bars, dumbass, If there's a chance to get out, then I don't think anyone wants to be on here longer than they have to be." Besides, she was not looking forward to whatever might happen when their kidnappers returned.

Tiru glared daggers at the girl before shaking his head. "Sensing a bit of hostility there. Don't really appreciate it."She has a point. But if this somehow works and we get out, we keep moving or we're fried. The grey wolf then shifted his gaze to Matthias, motioning toward the door with Boreal. "Let's get to work. I'm ready when you are." With that, the grey wolf drew and shifted Aurora into SMG mode with his free hand, keeping both guns trained on the bars.
