This is the running RPG adventure over at Nintendo Arcade.
To see it in it's RPG form, there is a link to NA in my sig.
Destinon: A pistol- wielding man looking for his sister
Leon Tros: A rogue carrying two knives and tonfas.
Xiile Tros (pronounced "Zee-al"): A blind thief, Leon's brother
Katrina, Ana, and Rusty: Three travelling werewolf siblings
Dean Calzazack: Destinon's long time rival
"Destinon! Help!" "Destiny! Come back here with her!" Just as he said that he got knocked unconscioud by a club. :Back To Reality:
"No...no..come..back..don't...Ahhh!" Destinon sits up from his slumber. "Oh, it was just a bad dream..." He walks over to the pond where he set up camp. "Don't worru sis, i'm coming..." He got his sword and started to proceed through the Swamp....
He walked until a man with white hair and foggy grey eyes jumped out from a tree.
"So you must be the Wandering Assasin, huh?" *chukles* "My name's Leon Tros, and if your lookin to build your clan, I'm the best around these parts." He said as he spun his combat knife on his finger.
"Well, i could use some help on my journey." "What, and where you headed?" Leon put his knife away. "Well, i'm lookin for my sister, and tryin to find where the Wandering Assasin's clan's Base is. Havn't had too much sucsess with that..." "Well, well. Lookin for your sister eh? I'll help. On one condition." "What?" "I get to keep any treasure we find along the way." Destinon made a discontent look and answered. "i guess so." and Destinon and Leon shoke hands....
Leon was planning to give at least half of the treasure to his brother Xiile so he could stop begging for a while. As they trudged through the swap Leon led the way and cut down hindering vines with his knife and they chatted. "So whats the deal with your sister- why did they take..." but before Leon could finish his sentence a pack of at least 25 Bokoblins surrounded them very quickly. Leon grapped his tonfa's and Destinon unsheathed his sword.
Destinon and Leon chewed their way through the mass of bokoblins and when the there was but one left, as both men began to charge it, there was a loud snap, and it's head fell off. Leon recognized the sound at once and began looking around feverishly. About 25 feet behind the group was a man in a large cloak sitting on the ground, winding a whip and attaching it to his belt. His face and body was covered, but Leon had seen him before and began to smile. "You know this guy?" Asked Destinon. "Do I know em? I used to live with him!" Announced Leon. The man in the cloak stood up and revealed his identity, "Its been a long time, Comrade..." Xiile said.
The scene of Xiile's appearance
Leon ran over and atempted to tackled him but Xiile stepped out of the way and Leon missed. He got up and slugged him in the arm. "Where you been all this time?" Leon asked Xiile. Destinon noticed how sivlery and lifeless his eyes were. "Whos your friend?" Asked Xiile. "Is he someone I can trust?" "My brother, this is Destinon. Xiile- Destinon, Destinon- Xiile." Both men shook hands. Xiile said nothing for the rest of the afternoon. As it got dark the party set up camp outside of the Trilbey Highlands and contunued learning about each other. "So as I was saying before- Why did these people take your sister, and who are they?"
Destinon looked at the ground and started to explain his story.... "These people call themselves the Wandering Assasin's, they are the reason my parents are dead.... Their seven of them, three girls, three guys, and a Demonic looking person that stands as their leader.... When i was 10 they came and destroyed mine and Destiny's village.... I'm not real positive why they kidnapped Destiny but i did hear them scream, "Capture the Beast!" It still is confusing to me.... I'm lookin for these guys for the revenge of my village, and to save my sister! Nobody will Stop Me!!!"....
Leon gazed into the distance. "That's quite the story" he replied, practically speachless. Leon took one last swig of the wine he had left and fell asleep. Xiile still sat there and stared with his lifeless eyes into the fire they had made.
Destinon wasn't paying much attention to Xiile, he finished his wine in the bottle. Xiile stayed lookin at the fire, "What's wrong Xiile?" Destinon asked while smashing the bottle on his head....
Katrina, Ana, and Rusty were walking along wordlessly in the swamp about half a mile from the other three. The only sound they heard was the squish of their feet in the muck. "Hey... I smell a fire... Wonder if they have any food?" Ana muttered. "Well, let's go impose on them. Which way, Ana?" Katrina asked, chuckling. Ana took off toward the fire with Katrina close behind Rusty's only response was to smack his forehead as he started to run and sigh, "My sisters... Scare me with their lack of common sense. These people could be enemies!" When they got close to the fire, Ana was the first to step out. The large, blue-eyed wolf quietly sat 6 or 7 feet away from the fire, staring at the flames waiting for someone to notice.
Xiile mearly stared at the fire for a moment longer. He opened his mouth to answer, and then he closed it. and then looked up to see Ana revieling herself from the brush. "And what business have you here?" He asked the wolves.
Destinon, with the blood driping down his head turned around and noticed the Wolf. "Lets see here.... Two girls and a Guy, Am i right?" Destinon stood up and started towards the Wolves...
Xiile stood up and then stopped. The wolves were not making sound. He couldnt find them. Careful not to step on the fire, he removed his cloak ready for a fight, not knowing the wolves brought no hostilities.
The wolf said simply, "We're not gonna fight you. My siblings and I have been wandering for weeks. We're quite hungry, as our food ran out three weeks ago. So, what I'm asking is... Would you kind souls split some food with us?" Katrina and Rusty crawled out of the brush after her. "D***it... I think I ran through some poison ivy back there," Katrina growled. Rusty just walked over to a tree and hit his head on the trunk a few times, saying something in a language that sounded like a wolf snarling... Literally.
*NOTE! Katrina and Rusty are werewolves, yes. But they're currently in their human forms.*
Xiile broke a loaf of bread that had been sitting on the fire. "Please do," he said and handed them the bread, now knowing their location, "What's your name and your, no offense, the names of your snarling siblings? Your werewolves, arent you? I can tell by the snarl."
Destinon looked at the Three and wiped the blood off of his face, "Well i haven't seen werewolves in a while, So what are you three doing traveling out here?"...
Leon was still asleep with all this going on.
Ana smiled, which was quite an interesting sight. "I'm Ana. My sister is Katrina, my brother, Rusty, should stop smacking his head on that tree before he gets a concussion." Rusty stopped hitting his head and grinned sheepishly. "So," Katrina said, taking the bread and breaking it into three pieces, " we were chased out of town. Again. We stole something as our food had run out, and the f***ing morons chased us out, this isn't the first time we've been run out of a town at swordpoint. And everyone wonders why I typically dislike humans. You three seem OK, though. Thanks for the bread!"
Leon woke up at the smell of the bread. As his eyes focused in one the werewolves he instinctively drew his tonfa's. "Put them away" said Xiile, not looking up from the fire, "They are friendly."
"No problem." Xille said to the were wolves while he sit back down. Destinon looked at his forehead, it was bleeding pretty bad. "What did you do?" Katrina asked while chewing a little piece of the bread. "Smashed a bottle on my head, don't do it, it hurts..." "I'm sure" Rusty said. "So you three were run out of town for stealing some food?" "Yeah, but we needed it, we were hungry.".......
"Be hungry no more. If we ever need to steal some food, that's my specialty... so, we're lookin for some help in finding Destinon's sister. You in? Food, adventure, TRESURE..." he added.
The three chatted amongst them selves for about a minute. "Alright we have come to a decision..."
Katrina said with a smirk, "Personally, you had me from the words food and adventure. But my siblings... Are more cautious than me. But, we're up for it!" Rusty and Ana nodded.
The next morning, the group awoke to find that their fire had spread. The sleeping mats were on fire, as well as the rest of the camp They...
...Rushed for the nearby brook to collect water and quickly put out the fire. Xiile bearly said anything the whole time and stayed calm. Leon looked in the bags of food and found their suppy exhausted. "We need food" he said as he massaged his stomach. Without a word Xiile got up and started heading to Hyrule Town. Everyone quickly followed. "How are we going to pull off this job?" asked Rusty and Ana in unison."Well be regonized by every shopkeeper there" "Who says we have to be seen?"Said Leon confidently."20 years of begging and pickpocketing did us somegood" Xiile scoffed. The party continued to stride towards Hyrule Town with a bit more bounce in thier step.
While the group made camp, Xiile slipped into town with his cloak covering his face and stumblin like a drunken blind man, well, the latter is true anyway. He bumped into 3 people and stole 200 rupees before he even sat down to "beg." He made enough money to feed twice the people in the party and even got some free food at the Bazaar. Rusty ate 3 times his ration, but the group was full in time to move on. Nothing is quite as energizing as a hot meal and a sense of adventure.
Destinon, who isn't a good thief had some sucsess during this stealing period. He got about 120 Ruppee's and two knife's. He didn't pay too much attention to the knife's though. He asked Katrina, Ana, and Rusty, "Do any of you guys want these?"
Katrina said, "I'll take them both, if that's OK with Rusty. My steel fans are getting kind of dull. Any objections, Rostislav?" she finished with a grin, using Rusty's full name. Rusty smiled, and said, "Keep 'em, Katrina. My magic works enough for me!"
After the party had finished this Thieving period they started to make their way to the Kokiri Forest. "Why are we heading here?" Leon asked. "I think we are looking for something." Ana answered. "Think!?!" Destinon lashed out. "We have no idea why we are heading here...." Xiile answered while Sighing.....
Up in the bushes, the party heard a noise. Each one drew their weapons, and prepared for battle. Rusty tore through the bush until a man appeared. He was lying on the ground, dying. His shirt bared the insignia of the Wandering Assasin's clan. "Destiny..." Destinon whispered under his breath, "WHERE IS DESTINY!?" He raised his voice at the man. "Who is... Destiny?" The man stuttered out. Destinon was furious, "The girl! Your boss has her!"
From left to right: Wandering assasin, Destinon, Leon, Ana, Xiile, Rusty, and Katrina
The life was leaving the man's eyes. "Death... Mountain... but..." Destinon's heart was pounding ever faster, "BUT WHAT?!" The man laid his head back on the ground, "Ganno... Gannon..."
The party put away their weapons. They stood for a moment, in silence.
Destinon broke into a run. Death montain was in the distance.
The party started to follow him, hoping to find what they were looking for. Just before they reached Death Mountain, one of the Wandering Assasins intercepted the party. Detinon drew his sword and the party readied themselves. The battle has begun....
The three werewolves prepared for battle, but Leon held them back. "This is his fight." he said and leaned against a tree."Lets see if his anger is getting the best of him..."
Destinon ran towards the Man, and started to swing like crazy. He missed every swing. The Man swung back and got Destinon's arm. "Oh geez, he can't keep his anger in, he is gonna lose." Katrina thought while looking on in Discomfort. Destinon was losing, and nobody coul do anything....
Xiile sat and listened. It sounded like Destinon was losing.
The man knocked Destinon's sword out of his hands, and put the Knife to his throat. Just then, a Whip-like sword came and stabbed the Man threw his stomach. The man was dead. Destinon looked up and said, "Well if this can't get any worse." The Party looked up towards the other Person. Destinon said, "Dean Calzazack." Dean replied, "Destinon...." Leon looked on in amazement....
Dean jumped from his perch to the site of the battlefield and began to pace back and forth. "Where is she?" Destinon asked. Dean knew who he was talking about. "Oh, the little girl is not hurt." Dean suddenly charged Destinon at full speed. Destinon barely dodged the oncoming sword. Dean turned to face Destinon again. "That is wonderful, you have improved." Dean struck for Destinon's legs, but Destinon jumped on top of the blade and pinned Clazazack to the ground, his sword at his throat. "You dont tell me where she is, you die. She hurt, you die. If by chance you do tell me where she is, Ill think about letting you live." Calzazack smiled and hit Destinon's blade away. He rolled lightning fast out of the way and stood up. "So noble," he said, "but nice guys finish last..." Calzazack jumped back to his perch and walked out of sight.
Dean Calzazack vs. Destinon
Destinon clenched his grip, "Bastard, always running from me." Leon, Ana, Rusty, Katrina, and Xiile walked up to Destinon. He didn't notice them, he turned around and jumped back, almost like he just got freaked out. "I almost forgot you guys were here." Leon said in amazement. "Nice job, you didn't give up." Ana Clapped, as did Rusty and Katrina. Xiile just grinned. Destinon sheathed his sword. And the party continued forward....
They persued Calzazack up the cliff from which he had stood, which was a bit of a challenge for Xiile, being blind and all. When they reached the spot, they found a cave entrance in which a deep blackness lurked.
Destinon sprinted in, Leon tried to stop him, but was Unsucsessful. Ana ran in following with Rusty and Katrina. Leon went in, but Xille refused. Leon left Xiile there, to guard. "Destinon!" Rusty called out. "Where is he?" Leon asked. Just then they heard sword's clashing at a High speed. They got a better look..... Dean and Destinon were going at it again!
Everyone began to grope around, looking for somewhere to hide. Except Xiile. To him, this darkness was as clear as day. His whip lashed out and caught Dean in the foot. Destinon put his sword to Calzazack's throat and began to make a cut. "I'll ask once more," Destinon said," Where... is... my... sister?"
Calzazack winced and blurted out, " The top of the mountain! Gannon has her at the top of the mountain!" Destinon took his sword and scratched a "D" into Calzazack's cheek. "Something to remember me by." He said, and then knocked Calzazack out.
Calzazack Under Attack
The group started to climb the Mountain, struglling to get to the top as the Winds picked up. "AHHHHHH!!" Katrina screamed as the winds lifted her off her feet. Xiile caught her. "Th-Thanks..." "If this keeps up we won't be able to make it to the top!" Leon yelled out. Destinon had a Determined look on his face, almost as if he was in a Trance. Just then Dean poped up in front of the group. "You just don't know when to quit, do ya Dean!?"
Rusty quickened his pace of climbing. He reached the top and helped the other's make the final footholds. He then pushed Destinon to the ground. "It's my turn," he said, "Ive had enough of these games."
Rusty transformed into his werewolf form. Dean pulled out his sword. "Rusty no!" Destinon yelled standing back up. Leon lunged and pulled Destinon back. "Don't, he's had enough of Dean." "I know, but he has no idea what he's going against." Rusty ran towards Dean. Dean tripped Rusty and went for a stab. He missed and Rusty stood back up, panting and growling. Dean did a hotshot smirk, only to make Rusty angrier.....
Leon was getting really annoyed with Dean at this point and charged Dean, Tonfa's drawn. They clash for only several seconds before Dean had Leon backed up against a cliff. "Youre not worth it" he said and knocked him out with the hilt of his sword.-Leon dreaming of his past after Dean KO'ed him-
Leon was lying in bed. He was only 7 at the time. He was awoken by quiet shouting in the main room of the hut that was his house. He quietly got out of bed and peeked out the crack in the door. The room was lit by the small fire in the corner and 3 men were standing in the center of the room- one was his father. Little did he know that this was the last time he would see him. The other men were different. One was dressed in red with odd wings on his boots and the other in a grey cloak. The men were talking in a hastened fashion.Leon could only make out several words.
"Working... *murmur*... partners... *murmur*... Ganon." Said the man in red.
"Let us take this outside" said Leon's father. He walked over to his sister, Leon's Aunt, and kissed her on the forehead. "We are going to the swamp... we will be back momentarily"
Leon got back in bead but did not sleep that night, for there was something about the man in read that troubled him.-End of Dream-
Leon woke up only several minutes after Calzazack had knocked him out. He hardly remembered his dream but one thing lingered in his mind. The man in red was Dean Calzazack- and Dean Calzazack murdered his father.
At this time, Dean was holding off both Destinon and Xiile. Leon looked around, he didn't see Katrina, Ana, or Rusty. "What did he do to them?" Leon thought. Dean knocked Xiile back, and watch as Destinon and Dean clashed in a High speed battle.......
With the swords making so much noise, it was easy for Xiile to keep track of where Calzazck had been, but not where he was right now. He was to fast. He lashed out with his fists to no avail.
Xiile kept tryin, and eventually struck Dean, it wasn't hard enough to stop him though. Xiile threw a hard one, that hit Destinon, it shifted his attention allowing Dean to get a Bad cut right across Destinon's Stomach......
At this point, Leon jumped in. He couldnt take it any longer. "What happened to my father?!" he yelled at Calzazack. "So you finally figured it out, eh? Your father was charged with treason against the Wandering Assassin's Creed! Us in the Wandering Assassin's Clan rubbed him out!" Xiile and Leon were speechless. Fortunatley, this gave Destinon the chance to attack.
He lunged forward and got Dean right Through the Stomach. Leon looked down at Destinon, who fell to the floor at the same time as Dean. Katrina, Ana, and Rusty, came climbing back up the mountain. Leon yelled, "Where were you!?" "He knocked us off, we were climbing back up."
The group ran for the path leading upwards to the next peak.
Leon bent down, and lifted Destinon on top of his Shoulders. "He really did a number to himself." Xiile kept on walkin. Ana noticed Destinon's sword had been left behind. "H-h-hey! His sword is still back there!" Nobody heard her. "Oh, well. Looks like i'm going to have to get it." She walked over to the sword, and ryied to pick it up. It wouldn't budge. "Geez, how does wield this heavy thing so easily!?" She kept on tryin, but Dean stood up, and prepared to strike. Ana didn't notice Dean.....
... as he grabbed for her ankles. Blood was seeping down his torso and forming a lake at his feet. He covered her mouth before she could scream and...
A strange giant lifeform, that look as a blur, to Ana. Swooped down and Chucked Dean off of the mountain. The figure looked at Ana, and then flew off...
The whole team had seen that. Everyone stood mezmerized for a moment.
"That, thing was huge!" Leon yelled. The lifeform, who still was in viewing ranged, looked at Leon. It started to fly towards Leon.....
Leon dived to the left, almost in time. His leg recived a huge gash, accompanied by a large *snap
*. His leg was broken and useless.
Xiile leaped up, and tried to slah the giant Lifeform. He missed, and the lifeform threw his hand at Xiile. Xiile got shot back. The lifeform laughed and flew off. Katrina, Ana, Rusty, and Destinon checked on Xiile and Leon.....
That's it for now. I will update it daily. This post has been edited by Destinon on Aug 25 2006, 05:37 PM
