    Abyss Heights - Pit of Despair - The Strength Test Begins
    Uus


    The slime would enter the bar, listening and hearing the cusp of the end of the man's speech. Prove yourself, join the quest, save the miners. All things Uus could do. Though why, why was this abomination of slime-hood here? Not only that, but she was a marine fledgling-become-captain. A marine slime was in this bar, looking to join this expedition.

    Her reasons come down from her General. General Geist Payne, or GG for short, had sent Uus out into the world to discover what she should fight for as a soldier. A brilliant man, but extrodinarily cold. Uus followed his command, and it got her here. Listening and watching the bar patrons, she would step forward, skirting past Reggie and Sentai Pink, the bar would look at her.


    "Eheh! Maid! Maid! Gimme a beer!" the drunk stammered, thinking Uus was wait service.

    'Uus will give you beer... but only if you shoot Uus. Uus need show worth!? SHOOT UUS IN HER FACE!"

    A drunkard of a man would storm up to Uus, claiming she was a maid and wanting her to service him. This was common, as Uus dressed in maid clothing made from firefighting gear. Not to resist flames; it was solely so she did not destroy her own clothing. This aspect was still a secret, but she did indeed look like a maid. In fact, she looked like such a maid, no one could honestly tell she was a marine under another's command.

    Shaken by Uus nearly tackling him, the man would draw his flintlock, firing.

    The bullet would go straight through Uus's face and head, a clean head shot. What would kill a human, the slime merely chuckled as her head reformed where the hole had punctured. Uus would smile, the man firing more bullets, only for Uus to slam her fist into his face. Slime would enter his nose and mouth, suffocating him. The man struggled until he was unconscious, lack of air bringing him to a slumber. He dropped to the ground, and Uus would recover her hand, looking around the room and then at the man who wanted to hire her.


    "Uus is like monsters of abyss. Unknown. Fierce! Uus cannot be of any less use."

    Moving away from the center, Uus would find a quiet wall where a dumbfounded man held a glaive in his hand. Uus, hissing at him, would grab his glaive and relieve him of it, making the man run in fear. She liked glaives.

    The newly appointed Marine captain had made it to Abyss Heights. It was the capitol of criminal activity after all, and a man with a mission such as he would wound up being here regardless of his position or not. He needed to rid the the world of it's infection. Walking to a bar of sorts, not only was there a large gathering but he had also heard gunshots. So he chose to investigate. He picked up a flyer off the ground as many people were turned away. Everyone here were most likely criminals. But even so, if a crime is not committed in front of him, he will not act. These people may be criminals but they are also fathers, sons, daughters and mothers. They have families, some they support with their endeavors. Not all criminals are evildoers, but every evildoer is a criminal. Whether it is someone within the Navy or even higher, if they commit a crime they have fallen and must be eradicated from this world. His face was full of contempt as he entered the bar. He was dressed akin to a firefighter more than a Marine. But the air around him was commanding. As soon as he stepped in the bar, the air within the building would shimmer like the air above a granite road on a hot summer's day. The heat was sweltering, however for one Slime maiden along the wall probably wouldn't feel a difference but he didn't know this. His eyes scanned the room as he entered. His protective fireman's jacket draped his shoulders, similar to how the Marines wear their own coats.

    The heat was contained only within the bar, the inhabitants should start sweating even though it was room temperature not too long ago. It could simply be because of the large crowd. Which to most would find it unbearable, causing the crowd to thin if only a little. Sitting at the bar, he would order a shot of Hennessy, brown and bitter. Dropping the beri needed to pay, the bartender was not able to lift them or even touched them as they burned into the counter. The smell of smoke soaked the air. But the could have been the smoke from various smoker's within the tavern. Sitting there, he twirled his finger around, The brow in the cup would swirl before being lifted to his lips. As he turned on his stool, he scanned the surroundings. A few individuals stood out. A boy in a red hood, a maiden composed of slime, A loli in a skin tight suit, and a man with a singed-feathered coat. He ordered another shot, picking up the shot glass lit aflame from the heat of his hand, the alcoholic contents and the oxygen within the air. He took a swig, keeping his eyes on the crowd. It would gradually get hotter from there on out, the heat emanating from the man slowly.

    Pits of Despair
    Yukiko - Yami Bakura


    Shortly after settling in the bar, a black strong-looking male stood on top of a table. He was the head miner and the one responsible for the operation. His name was Krew. He clearly had no intentions on bringing useless meat shields. Everyone had to "audition" for a spot and with the way Kamina's head was right now, he wasn't interested anyway. He knew his name of course, that was something he could remember from childhood but where were the writings that belonged on the empty pages missing the book that is his head?

    "Oi, show us that gun isn't just a shiny relic -"

    The unfortunate fellow went to reach for Kamina's piece and on instinct a gun shot echoed throughout the bar drowning out part of Sentai Pink's introduction. Cohin fell face flat on the floor, a puddle of blood forming around his head.

    "Kamina..."

    His voice wasn't raised much as to interrupt The Hood but people uttered it after him starting from closest to him and a few others. Long story made short his introduction was done. Kamina's attention wasn't even on the dead Cohin but on the barrier formed by Sentai Pink he could see through use of his third eye or Mantra. He wasn't aware where he had learned his handling of the gun or his enhanced senses he didn't know could be attributed to haki but he was very capable of applying it, apparently.

Krew, as he was called, was the Miner Chief, and the one in charge of the operation. The selection method was a simple one. All one had to do was state their name, and showcase what would make them a useful person to bring along. After a few rather lackluster attempts were made, it would be time for her to shine. She stepped forward. After doing some crazy posing, she would announce her name and display her worth.

    A name...? Call me Sentai Pink. As for my worth to the team... I am the force that protects the weak. I shield all from harm. You seem like a pretty strong fellow! Go on then! Give me your best shot!

    She would then cause a transparent barrier to appear in front of her. It would look similar to glass, but it was actually an unbreakable shield. Should the chief oblige her request, he would note her worth quite well. Despite her odd behavior, she would definitely be invaluable down in the unknown depths.

    As the bar was getting filled up, the barman was just serving a customer sitting on the far right of the bar. The individual was a young, wearing black pants and a red hoodie. He had just been served today's special, which consisted of a cherry pie and a glass of beer. As he was eating his meal, the kid heard the announcement made by the man. Curiosity got the better of him. He turned his stool to the left, now he was facing the man standing on the table. At first, he thought it was quite rude of him to be standing on a table. But then he saw the huge crowd that had come here for him.

    "Well, it seems that I finally found something to do."- the kid mumbled as he looked at the crowd.

    Seeing a girl stepforward to introduce herself, the hooded kid knew that things could get very interesting. Nefarious thoughts came through his mind.
    In a quick movement, the kid stood up and walked towards the man.

    "The name is Reggie, but you can call me "The Hood". I am a ressourceful person and your announcement peaked my interest. I feel like I can do alot of good for your team. "

    However, Reggie wasn't fully honest with the man. Or more accurately, his intention weren't as noble as he made it seemed.

    Abyss Heights - Pit of Despair - Tryouts
    Hype, Yuki, Yami, Bbomb, Reiji and Ellie

    Krew, standing atop a table, welcomed those who thought themselves fit to set forward and prove their worth. The first was a female, presumably, dressed in an odd pink garb. She introduced herself as Sentai Pink. She then urged Krew to punch her. There were several things wrong with this encounter. First, why was she wearing that odd pink garb?? Second, what kind of name was Sentai Pink?? Third, Krew wasn't a fighter. Lastly, why the hell would Krew punch a female for no reason?? The miner was puzzled to say the least. He simply stood, rubbing his bald head in bewilderment.

    "Well... um... I don't fight... and uh... I don't hit women... So........ Yeah, if you can protect us from rubble and cave-ins, then we good."

    Krew was already annoyed, but he needed guards, and the silly woman stepped up. Next a man with a red hood stepped forward. he introduced himself as Reggie, and then reintroduced himself as "The Hood". Obviously nicknamed after his clothing, much like the pink gal. Reggie, however, wasn't so kind as to even show off any talent. He simply said he felt as though he'd be a good fit.

    "Look, Reggie. I honestly couldn't care less about how you feel about your skills. Do they hold up or not?? I've seen a lot of folk come through here actin tough, and a lot of them are taking the big sleep in the abyss. For ****'s sake, is there any real talent here?? ****'s got me so annoyed, I'm burning up in here."

    The first two applicants obviously annoyed Krew, but the next one would change his attitude, if only briefly. Next a humanoid blob of sorts dressed in maid garb would step up. She introduced herself as Uus, and egged another man to open fire in her face. One could be sure that the man had a different idea of shooting a woman in the face, regardless, he'd oblige. The bullet, passing through, ricocheted off the wall and hit the barrier created by Sentai Pink, much noted by Krew. This is where Uus would truly shine, as not only did she live despite being punctured through the head, she proceeded to drown the man using her own blobbiness. It was quite a sight to see. During all of this, Krew was so excited that he merely ignored the gunfire and the ridiculous heat, as they were relatively unimportant.

    "See, that's what I wanted to see. Uus, was it?? Yea, get your jiggly ass over here. You can definitely handle your own, and from the looks of it, you won't have a problem with the many dangers of mining. You're in."

    Out of the bunch, it seemed Krew had only found one definite asset, and a few prospects. Tryouts didn't do jack as far as recruiting would go. The slime was an asset, but the task at hand would call for more than one guard, which left Krew with a couple of choices. He could go ahead with the plan, hoping Uus and Pinky could do what was necessary, or he could just grab a couple of others and basically use them as meat shields.

    "Okay, umm. You, You, you and you... Come with me."

    Krew's finger pointed at several who were within the bar, hoping they'd come join him at the table. Should Uus have moved over to Krew already, those at the table would include Sentai Pink, The Hood, Kamina, and the weirdo with the firefighter's coat. The latter was chosen purely because Krew could steal the coat in case of a fire. With a handful of potential, and only one surefire guard, Krew would climb down from the table, speaking to the group in a low tone.

    "The plan is simple. We go deep down into the abyss and mine for power crystals. We need only a few to continue powering this dump we call a home. Your job is simple. You get me and my team down there in one piece. You bring us back in one piece. You get paid. Simple enough. Any questions??"



    The Green Finale -
    Tor

    The Green Finale. A dangerous forest filled with many creatures and living things that aim to kill or consume a man. It was not a place where men would travel, at least not often. Be it the omnivorous trees, or the poisonous plants, or even the monsters and beasts of gigantic proportions, one's life was certainly at stake upon entering the forest. Which brings us to Tor. Tor traversed from the city, all the way to the forest. His two week journey did not take long. Being mostly robotic, Tor did not need much rest, nor much sustenance. He simply trekked to trek, which is how he came upon the forest. The cyborg Karateka would stop in the forest for one reason and one reason only. To practice Kata.

    In nature, one can allow their mind to relax openly, their spirit roams freely, and they can truly feel peace. Kata was not just important exercise for martial arts, but it was great for meditation. If one focused only on each movement, each breathe, each individual moment; they could rid themselves of the grand scheme, the vast worries, and the fear of shortcomings. Kata and Meditation was Tor's primary goal in the forest, but upon doing so, he'd stumble upon something more.

    Tor caught sight of something inspiring. His quest for the perfect Karate brought him upon an interesting sight. A vision of two spiders, one cute,
    the other brash, but both swayed beautifully together. They were in sync. Both Spiders differed, but in this one instance, they were connected,
    united even.

    "This is the perfect Karate. A display of beauty and beast. A Karateka is neither too hard, nor too soft. A Karateka adapts to his surroundings. A Karateka adapts to his opponent. Light cannot exist without the darkness, nor can the dark exist without the light."

    His inner thoughts projected verbally, Tor made his presence know. If not for his voice alone, the Spiders could see the large cyborg mimicking their swaying movements with a burning passion.

    Abyss Heights, The Pit of Despair- Sentai Pink
    She had just asked the burly looking chief to attack her, when he refused. He gave out two reasons, and she was okay with one of them. Her opinions would be kept to herself though. Moments after her failed attempted at a display, would a rather interesting... thing? take the spotlight. She instructed a man to shoot her, and so he did. The bullet passed right through her, and impacted with the barrier she had produced for her failed demonstration. Her abilities were demonstrated, just not how she had planned. After the bullet had been stopped in its tracks because of her barrier, she would speak up once more.

    Unbreakable are my defenses. The only thing I cannot safely protect us from are gas based attacks and anything else which does not have a 'force' to it.

    She would then go on to listen as the chief praised the display of the odd goop creature. She too thought it was a nice display. For now she had one less she needed to concern herself with protecting. Of course, should it be needed, she would also protect Goopy. While her mind should have been on the selection process, she was confident her confirmed to be at least bulletproof defenses, would earn her a spot. Thus, she was more worried about the next pose she would do. She wouldn't have much time for thinking about this sort of thing once the mission had actually started. She thinks, and thinks, and then decides on a rather showy acceptance pose. Sure enough, she was one of the ones the chief pointed too when calling out those who had passed the selection test.

    She lifts her left foot up, and then forms a barrier underneath it. This barrier was a special one. For it was one of her Grasshopper platforms. A barrier that had its tensile strength altered, making it very springy and bouncy. Placing her foot down, she is launched in the air and towards the table where the chief was currently residing. Whilst airborne from her little stunt, she performs several flips. Landing in front of the chief in another interesting pose. After making eye contact with him, she spoke up once more.

    Excellent choice!

    She would then listen to him go into detail about the mission. The plan was indeed simple. Those selected just now were to accompany the miners into the depths, and ensure they make it back alive. She would do her utmost to ensure the safety of the miners. After getting a look at the city earlier, she is filled with determination to give the people of this place a little more hope. When asked if she had any questions, she had but one.

    When do we start?

    Krew was impressed by Uus, remarking on her ability to not be liable for certain death. That was the first step in any interview process: don't become a liability. Offered a seat at the table, Uus was quick to accept, plopping herself to a chair with a resounding squish.

    The plan was simple. Go down, go with people, get stuff, come back, come back with people, come back with stuff. Whatever these crystals were,
    they were valuable. Uus could certainly experiment with them, conducting energy trials, so she would need to plan to take one for herself. Easy enough, she'd think...

    Waiting, she would look at the other members, holding onto her glaive like a staff as she sat. The pink one would accept the plan, and Uus would look at Krew and nod in agreement.


    "Payment, exploration, and civic duty. Uus accepts."

    Regrettably, Uus would not notice the temperature change too much, the room going from normal to a bit warmer in her standards. She'd also not have paid attention to the man who had died to a bullet wound, but I am sure someone was trying to test their metal as well but got overlooked.
    Hopefully, these people were dependable, because the only other one that listened to Krew was the pink one... and she flips everywhere. Uus was perturbed by that.



    Tor - Paf

    The massive cyborg would see the dance, himself watching and soon imitating. Paf would see this, her golden eyes widening with curiosity. The large spider and Paf would begin to sway, moving towards Tor as they all swayed. The result would be a trifecta of swaying, limbs moving in unison to form a waving circle. Ebb and flow, motion of side to side. The dance would continue for a minute before the large spider would stop and Paf would jump, leaping and landing atop the much larger spider.

    Sixteen eyes stared at Tor, Paf and the big mount both taking in Tor and his value.


    "Paf sees metal man. Metal man is big... but is he of worth? What is metal man's value?"

    Speaking in the third person, Paf would ask Tor what his value was. What was the cyborg's worth? Perhaps too personal of a question, Paf's eyes would remain wide with eagerness, looking and taking in Tor's persons. The big spider did not care, as it was a spider who was now just getting its webs ready, but it was still there. Tor could see that one, at least, might not attack; it couldn't eat Tor.

    The Marine in the fireman's jacket had wandered into the bar to see if crime would pop off. But they had all happened before he stepped in. In any case, he was chosen to be apart of the crew to help the miner's in and out of the depths below. It was the Navy's duty to protect the weak, as such he obliged and made his way towards the table where the female flubber, a pink ranger, an anthropomorphous flamingo, and the red hood had been motioned to. Because Krew had done this the crowd would start to disperse. He had chosen his crew, the others were unneeded. With the Heatman making his way over, the heat emanating from him would travel over to the table as well. It was unbearably uncomfortable.

    Sitting down, the air in front and over him would wave. However, to everyone else. This man wasn't sweating at all, even under all his gear. He was nonchalant about everything so far. Krew asked if any questions were in order, Uus mentioned payment. This marine was curious about something, but he'd figure out he'd meet whatever it would that would cause the miners trouble anyways. So he simply just mentioned "When do we leave?"

    Yuki, Ellie, Reiji, Yami, BBomb, Hype

    The protection crew gathered, Krew would go over the basics of the job at hand. Not many questions would be had. Uus accepted the job without delay. It was a simple job, and she was definitely up to the task. The odd Sentai Pink and the weirdo from the bar both had the same question regarding when they'd start. The other two males, Hood and Feathers, would both remain silent, not contributing much to the conversation. Krew would stand up from the table, business was just about done, save for the last questions.

    "I take it you all accept then. Sounds good. Tomorrow morning is when we'll set out. Last thing we need is to be stuck down there during the night hours. That's when things get really sticky. Anywho, my crew and I will be waiting where the river ends. We'll be dropping right down into the abyss from there. Get some sleep, get your stuff prepared. We got a long day ahead of us."

    From there, Krew would leave the table and the bar, heading out for the night. The hired men/women would be left to their own devices for the night. They could use this time to get to know one another, or prepare for the mission ahead. They could get rest, or they could stuff their faces with terrible bar food. The choice was there. All that mattered was that they made it to the meeting point the next day.

    The next day arrived, and Krew waited at the edge of the river with his crew. The normally black male was adorned in a metal suit, holding a massive hammer with him. Around him, he was surrounded by a robotic crew of metallic miners. Should the crew follow the river through the city, they would eventually meet up with Krew at it's end. Next to the edge of the river was a large tank-like vehicle.

    "Time to get to work. We're gonna ride this baby down 1000meters. That's where the big finds are. I hope y'all ready now. Remember, your job is to make sure me and my crew make it down, and make it back up in one piece. Now let's get going."



    Green Finale
    Tor and Paf

    Nature and Machines are normally against one another, but on this particular day, the large metal man would come to meet a pair of spiders. The trio swayed for a moment, before the spiders would stack atop one another. The spider on top looked toward Tor, the cyborg Karateka. The spider, Paf, would acknowledge the metal man and then pose a question toward him. What was Tor worth?? Little did the Spider know, this was a question Tor asked himself many times. He stood still for a moment, his swaying ceased. The orbs that hovered around his neck began to orbit, one after another they moved. Tor pondered upon the question, and upon completion, the orbs stopped, and the massive man bowed.

    "I am Tor. I have no worth, no value."

    A simple question was met with a simple response. Tor, in his eyes, had no worth or value. He believed he could not be evaluated, because he is not a complete product. A work in progress, Tor aimed to complete himself through trials and experiences. Meeting this Spider in this forest would be such an experience. Tor raised his head after his bow, his eyes focused on the spider. He stood sturdy, adding more to his previous statement.

    "Until this fist of mine is complete, I am of no value."

    Tor was not sure the spider would truly comprehend what he was saying, but he did not regret saying it. Tor was an honest man, an open book. He did not keep secrets or hide his intentions or feelings. He firmly believed in the concept that a Karateka must first know himself before he can know his opponent. Transparency with one self is the first step to seeing through an opponent.

    Reggie

    Hearing the demands of Krew, Reggie understood that a demonstration was in order. He hated doing a demonstration, as he believed them to be unnecessary. But he had to comply, so Reggie against his better judgment took a glass on a nearby table. He applied his most potent poison on it. The glass quickly melted into some weird liquid. Dropping what was left of the glass, Reggie looked at the man.

    "I believe that my demonstration should suffice."- he said as he looked at Krew with a smirk on his face

    During that time, Reggie had forgotten about the other contestant. It was both a gift and a curse of his. He somehow spaces out a lot, making forget sometimes that they are other people around him. As Krew pointed at the people who were accepted, Reggie remembered of their existence.Hearing that he was accepted, Reggie smiled and moved out of the bar at that very moment.

    "See you tomorrow then.

    Reggie loved to keep things theatrical. As he walked out in the street, Reggie decided to roam through the town.

    The new day, Reggie was the first to arrive. He had found the location by following the river. As he saw Krew standing there in his metalic armor, Reggie started to chuckle seeing the man with his metalic crew. Looking at the vehicule, Reggie felt like in a trance. He kept on walking towards it, like if something drawing him towards it.

    The parties were dismissed, and Uus was finally out of the slightly out of ordinary heat wave that wasn't common for that area. Being in a massive cave system, it was often quite damp and cool, and this area wasn't too far off. More pressing thoughts would come later, once she 'slept' and awoke for the next day.

    Second to the meeting, behind the man with a corrosive touch not unlike a particular slime breed's own, Uus would see the watery river of the meeting a a plethora of machinery that was to come. Krew was doned in a power suit, there was a tank, and there was a few miners. Seeing the metal suits and the tank, Uus would place a hand to her chin and tilt her head. Hopefully, those random uncontrolled heat waves would not follow the retinue. It would be dangerous if the main contraption overheated.

    Boarding the tank, Uus would not make a spectacle of anything. Instead, her eyes honed in on the abyss and its darkness. She'd been there for a bit, Uus, but what she had been doing was a fruitless task. Something was deep in that cavern of mystery, and it was really fast. Fast enough that Uus gave up, going for this mission instead. Stupid loli spiders.


    "Uus is ready. Hopefully, Uus is not only one ready for work from master."


    Spoiler: To Yami as a GM
    You will want to add, to your bio, the corrosive perk for poison if you plan on melting with said poisons. Even Kinjite.




    Tor - Paf
    Simple as the question may have been, its answer was certainly meant to be more complicated. Too much for Tor, as he would answer he had none. No value, no worth, nothing; a man with nothing to live for and nothing to care on. Paf's eyes would thin, as if Tor had directly slapped her face in insult. To have no worth was to be worthless.

    The spider of who Paf was atop would begin to skitter nervously under Paf, feeling the tiny one's claws dig into its own carapace in agitated annoyance. It's eyes would glisten, sweat would bead, and it looked up to its tiny dancer with worry. An instinct would tell it fear.


    "Worthless? Useless. Nothing. You waste Paf's time with your value."

    Clawing at the hairs atop her head, Pad's eyes would widen as she glared. The tiny spider girl girt her fangs. To be a nihilist and yet to join her, to be made of metal, it left Paf confused. She couldn't comprehend this man existing, especially if he had no reason to exist.

    "So worthless, better worth if... balanced. Parts useless to you, maybe give to others, others with value. Take your negative, give world..."

    Paf would leap from the spider, sailing through the air and smacking against a wall of vegetation on the cavern side. Eyes looked wide at Tor, a thin smile that would die as it had come. Tor was hearing words of someone rationalizing uselessness, and the end result seemed to be negative. The tiny spider was planning something, but her inability to speak full sentences made her hard to follow.

    "... positive value."

    Skittering away, Paf would round a corner and disappear from Tor's sight, but not his electromagnetic field. Faintly, he could sense the spider, and she was moving fast.
    Where she was going was confusing, as it was circular; something silken was coming from her backside. Webbing, but not set up to trap, or anything for that matter. The spiderling would leave Tor's radius, but the web only mean she was always going to be watching.

    Always close to 'balance' him.
