//EVERYONE (I'll be using this tag for various reasons, so try to keep an eye out for it whenever it shows. You are currently in the realm Sheol. From what the Aliquot guild has gathered on this place, the realm is a mixture of both deserts and grasslands. There are strange plants and animals that can be found in Sheol, which researchers would love to gather samples of to get a better understanding of this world, but to the guild's dismay, Sheol is also under the control of enemy forces. They call themselves The Sealers and ever since Aliquam first ran into them, they have been harassed and attacked by them. While Aliquam wishes to explore and gain knowledge of the worlds around them, The Sealers aspire to ensure that no civilization expands into other realms, despite the fact that they span across many realms it seems. They posses much more advanced technology than Aliquam, but with trying to cover too many fronts at once, The Sealers can't defend their claimed realms very well due to needing to spread out their forces. @Arra @zombiexander @Firebird Zoom (Nova) You are apart of "Team Barren." You've been tasked to assist in the rescue of a research team that was dispatched to this location. Your squadron commander goes by the name "Amalga." He's human who's real name is Jeffery Thompson, has light brown straight hair and is fair skinned. Amalga is armed with a shotgun and has a rather advanced looking rifle on his back, but it seems to be very worn and old. Either way, it's something that would probably be more appropriately found on a Sealer soldier. He also wears light armor that has a strange insignia on the chest piece. You are moving in as a distraction team while Team Odith is to extract the captors. The land around you is mostly grasslands now, but the floor is still coarse from all of the desert sand. "Why don't you guys tell me a little bit of something about yourselves?" Amalga asks, seeing that they aren't doing much other than walking at the moment. @Firebird Zoom (Kora) @BlueShard @themushroomlord (Tennin & Rith) "Team Odith" is what team you are on. You're the team that has been ordered to rescue a team of researchers that were sent here to better understand the realm. There are six to find, three of which are believed to be captured by the Sealers. Your team leader is Dirk, an arkisu covert op who is capable of shape shifting into other people. Dirk is tall, probably close to six and a half feet tall and is well built. He has black and dark grey fur with dark red markings on his face and hands. He holds no weapons that can be visibly seen on him. The arkisu hasn't spoken to anyone since he was assigned to this team, the only reason you know his name and anyone else's is from the mission debriefing role call. It's been an awkwardly silent walk this entire time as nobody has said anything to each other yet. Not even how they plan to find the captors. Perhaps trying to start a conversation to see what everyone is going to do is in all of your guys' best interest. @Roland Weiss @TechnoCupcake @HunterC1998 (Ian) You aren't actually supposed to be here, but there technically aren't any rules that say that you can't be. Your "leader" is Max, a yellow, white, and orange furred arkisu who believes there's one person apart of Team Odith that is here to kill one of the people who they are supposed to be rescuing.@Roland Weiss Max, full name Maxwell Eevs, is one of the people that has helped with exposing a few criminals you've gotten arrested in the past, and he usually doesn't ask for much in return. He's been trying to make a name for himself in the guild, which is exactly why he has asked for you to assist him; if the two of you can get enough evidence to catch which ever guild member is trying to kill the other, that'd be pretty big. The only problem is that Max is usually more organized than this and omitted a few details to get you out here, such as that he has no idea who the killer is and the target they're supposed to be protecting, that of which you just found out. Although this mission is already a bit of a mess, Max hasn't been wrong once with his claims, so perhaps he's on to something.@TechnoCupcake The arkisu is simply a "friend" of yours that let you have a place to stay when you first arrived in Aliquam, and helped getting you into the guild. Now he wants you to help him with this mission they weren't legitimately tasked to do. You aren't sure who the other humans are. Probably just some of Max's friends.@HunterC1998 (Ian) You weren't really here to help Max with his mission, but after you found out that your father was on the team that called for help and couldn't get on the team that was tasked to save them, your second best option was joining Max who promised that if they do find Bill, they will do what they can to help. @WarSarah @Dragonclaw @KingSalamander You three were here with three others to research this realm, but were ambushed by The Sealers. You've recently regrouped, but neither of you can find or contact the other three at the moment—Alehna Lee, Bill Stone and Gharshyl Hsok—and are still being searched for by your attackers. For now, you've lost them, but that may not last for long. One of you sent an S.O.S awhile ago, but you haven't gotten any response yet outside of a message that said they received your call and someone was being sent to your location very soon. You're in the middle of nowhere by the looks of it, just a bunch of sand and not a whole lot of vegetation anymore, and since your team leader Alehna was captured, you can't be given any orders on what you all should do. @HunterC1998 (Bill) @Jareix Cryvix Unfortunately, you all have been captured and your weapons and items have been taken from you. Your team leader, Alehna, is with you, but is currently out cold and very injured. She did what she could to distract the attackers so everyone could run, but was couldn't fight long enough to stop you from being captured. Alehna is a vakair with the similarities to an orca, one of the most common sub-races to vakair, and are largely natives of Aliquam. She is about average height and is clearly very tough with how well she did trying to distract a majority of the attackers for as long as she did. You all recently have just been tossed inside a cell. Alehna was stirring a bit, but not seeming to regain consciousness yet. There's only one person guarding their cell, and all of your guys' belongings can be seen across the room. The guard is a green gaseous wikkat with no brand located on their face, so it's sometimes easy to lose which direction they're facing. They posses a spear that they've laid on a table, but the table and its contents are out of reach from within the confines of your cell. The cell you've been tossed in is pretty old looking, moss being found covering the floors and walls and water seems to continously drip from the ceiling, despite the fact that this realm has been extremely dry ever since you've been here.
