Not doing anything in his previous post, just searching ruins and occasionally defending himself from a Khaine trap probably.

Zyata


"And you're telling me this as if I'm not aware."

"But why are we still doing it? Is she trustworthy enough to give you useful help and not the whole 'doing the quest made you stronger and that's the help, the power was inside you all along' thing? Those are super annoying. I tried not to go on quests any more after that experience with them." Zyata wondered aloud, trying to divert the issue. She wasn't the most observant person, and hadn't noticed Titanica had noticed, but rather than admit that, she was gonna keep running her mouth until she found away out, or dug herself a hole straight to hell. ~I hope she doesn't think I think she's dumb or something. I just didn't notice a difference between grumpy and grumpy because fetch quest. Er... Wait, that doesn't sound much better now that I think about it... Uhhhmmm.~

"We're not alone... Change of plan... we're going for the goat first."

"You can make portals? Awesome! Why were we walking everywhere?" Zyata dropped the Griffon wing she had been tearing off in surprise. Sure, the portal looked a bit questionable and like it'd probably take her to some bleak hellscape, but she already trusted Titanica with not squishing her and that seemed to have worked alright? What could possibly go wrong?

"Follow me."

"GERONIMO!" Zyata entered the portal much as she had entered the hot spring, with perhaps overwhelming enthusiasm. ~I'll land on my feet, cause cat. Right?~

"Oww..." Zyata rubbed her ass a little, not expecting as short of a drop as it had been, but she was walking it off fine. She was probably about to complain a little more when robo-raptors showed up. A smile took her face! Time to show them what for... Ok wow, that's fast.

Not trusting herself to get a solid bead on a weak point in their armor with their speed as they approached, Zyata shifted her rifle to her front, the barrel resting between her relative meager breasts, with one hand while the other drew her spear as she ran forward towards the swarm. Her eyes scanned back and forth.. for something, and with a smile she seemed to have found it as she picked a target.

Even with the reach advantage of a spear and a downhill momentum advantage, it was kind of dumb to attempt to charge when you were a 80 kg tiger-girl vs a god knows how much robo-raptor. Even if the spear did breach its armor, sheer momentum would lead to her being crushed under its weight like a child against a boar.

Which was, why instead of attempting to spear the robo-raptor, she used it more like a quarterstaff, thrusting the shaft horizontally into its outstretched teeth and claws as she slid under it. The friction tore up her back with the extreme speed and the rockiness of the mountain, but what was a few more stripes? But more importantly, it also tore her rifle strap, which began bouncing up. Letting go of the spear, she twisted as she slid, the ground falling away from her as she jumped a tiny cliff, and she sighted down the rifle in mid flight. The raptor machine slowed and turned, its speed momentarily zero, and Zyata had her shot, the anti-material rifle finding a chink in its armor and tearing its insides apart violently.

Once again, the cat landed with horrible form as far protecting herself went, but her gun was held high and safe. But, the landing zone was less good than she had hoped. She had been trying to break out of the encirclement but the enemy seemed to be numberless and she found herself isolated in their midst, without her melee weapon. And they had grown ice weapons and... That looked like the windup for a projectile attack. Zyata leapt away in an undignified, almost on all fours, scrabbling to a nearby shale rock outcropping. On the plus side, seeing she was being fired at from all angles, any missed shots had a decent chance of hitting other raptors. On the downsides, regular bullet shots probably bounced off these things unless they hit a weak point, and she was being fired at from all sides. Reaching the shale, she fired two round, one smashing its connection to the cliff, and another to set it moving faster, as she slid her way down the mountain, struggling to stay atop her little mini-avalanche that could hopefully get her out of the encirclement and not get buried underneath it.

"And gotta stay low.. I don't need the left arm if I don't have my spear anyway. And the other one feels like a flesh wound, barely hit me, I'll be fine." She tried to psyche herself up through the pain. She was damned lucky or quick to act to have not died immediately in the hail of ice bullets from every direction, but she wasn't fast enough to evade all of them, and had already been shot once in the left upper arm, and once near her waist, fortunately a few inches above shattering a hip. Even her gun had been hit, but she didn't have time to check the damage.

Cydone


Cydone raised an eyebrow as what looked like a girl, maybe a machina from the looks of that torpedo, decided to attack the three of them, or well, specifically that archangel guy 100 meters away. But still, in a battle this big, that was pretty close cohesion From Antaeus's shoulder, Cydone had a clear line of sight to the girl, but maybe she hadn't seen them? How'd she miss the 10 meter tall rock guy. Maybe he just looked to big to be a person and got mistaken for a building.

With one hand, Cydone swung his blade, sending forth a horizontal waveslash at Utada. The other reach out to increase the inertia of the water in front of the torpedo, making the water in front of it an immovable wall. He wished he could have done so closer to Utada so it'd blow up in her face, but even his reflexes weren't that good including cast time.

Cassiopia



Swept off with Jubilee. And the Kraken. But the Kraken would probably be dead soon from the abundance of bullets passing through its internal organs.

Zyata


"There's the mountains. I believe the Rocs and Goats can be found there, yes?"

"Yeah, though we might find a Roc try to prey on some elephants, or possibly you if you size yourself around elephant size. Finding them in the actual mountains might be a pain as they're rare and like being near the top. For rarer, more secretive predators with out of the way hiding spots, a lot of times it's easier to track and find their prey than the creature themselves. Then we make it show us the way to it's nest after we beat some sense into it!" Zyata responded, with some vigor and a punching motion as she talked about the beating up part. Zyata was happy to share her hunting expertise. Such as it was. Most of the time she was scavenging from fights but hey, you can't be an Amazon without going on at least a few exotic creature hunts. Sure, she'd never lead one, but she trusted she probably wasn't forgetting anything important.

Speaking of important things she didn't want to forget, there was the fact that this whole quest seemed unnecessary.
"So, you chose to grab this stuff for Hoho instead of anything else. I can understand you not being into girls for the kissing, but.. Still, it seems like you're letting her get one up on you and all. She's like, supposed to be the Alchemist of Genesis right? Even if she did need this stuff, couldn't she just magic it up? She's summoned way more magical stuff out of thin air before, from what I saw in her lab/dungeon/maze thing. And her willingness to go with a kiss, well, it's obvious from that she didn't really NEED the contract, she just wanted you to dance for her." Zyata was wondering if Hoho was stronger, or maybe possessed positional power, like, lots of irritating things she could do even if Hoho couldn't beat Titanica. All the little torments an alchemist of Hoho's skill could inflict on someone seemed pretty intimidating. Or maybe it was something else?

And then a dead griffon dropped out of the sky a few meters from Zyata, splatting some blood over her lower legs. Looking around, she couldn't see any source. "What is with today and chicken dropping out of the sky?" Zyata shrugged, before turning to Titanica, "Say, are you in a rush? If not, I'd be down for cooking some Griffon and seeing what that tastes like."

@Lmpkio

Cydone


"You've got a bit of.. Uh, crab?, on you partner.." Cydone was currently climbing up onto Antaeus's shoulder, a bit concerned about the crab that was latched on. With a quick slash/draw/throw/thing, he sent his sword hurtling through one of the crabs arms, slicing through the shell at a weak joint, before the pull of a wire sent it through the other arm and finally back to Cydone's hand. The two claws still seemed to be latched onto Antaeus, but the crab was left armless. "Well, tough luck Mr. Crab. I'm sure they grow back with a lil patience.." He tipped his hat at the crab. ~Well, ah hope that's not literally true, would be terrifying.~ He though to himself.

"Got any plans, partner? I could wave a net around to look, that's as good as I got. How bout you?" Cydone kept a weather eye out for danger while he hitched a ride.

Cassiopia



"Ooof.. Man, they always thrash so much when they get shot. So glad I don't suffer any pain from physical trauma." Cassiopia was bounced around a little by the Kraken's motion, but she had affixed her self rather firmly, and continued firing and shredding its internal organs inside the mantle with her gunfire. The guns wouldn't be much use out there, so no reason not to burn through her ammo here.

While Cass probably should have been escaping, her senses weren't quite acute enough to notice what was going on in relationship to the environment outside as she was tumbled around. She could tell her other bits that had been knocked away by the Kraken's clubbing were getting farther, but that was a very imprecise and vague sense.

Zyata


Zyata was not overly hopeful about how this was going to turn out, what with Hoho's general disregard of her save as a talking point against Titanica, and how Titanica responded to her question about a Tiger equivalent of Titanica's Saurian claim with a glare.

~Well, at least they're both wearing clothes now and, damn it, nope I can't unsee it... They barely cover anyway. Gah, I feel like a naive little Maiden all over again. Keep your cool, nobody wants their prey to just surrender without a hunt!~ Zyata raised a hand over her eyes, before then biting into her arm with a little growl to clear her mind. "Gwarawrrar."

~Come on, focus, the hunt.~ Zyata mentally tried to sych herself up as she stumbled out of the pool, grabbing her stuff but not having time to put it on as she hurried after Titanica to try and keep up. Without any magical drying off powers, she indeed lived up to Hoho's jab of 'wet pussy' as she chased after Titanica, dripping wet as she followed Titanica. "As far as Rocs and Goats go, we're probably looking for mountains near a savanna to have the best chance of finding both, I think I know a place. Kraken would need an ocean but I'm afraid I can't help with that one very much, Mmm-? Vaa-? Do you have a preference on like, polite form of address or is Titanica fine?" Zyata offered what help she could, before stumbling on Titanica's name. She heard some of the higher ranking folks with other factions were real finicky about titles. And well, with how much Titanica had a power advantage, Zyata wanted to stay on Titanica's mildly more amusing and helpful than annoying side. And with how much of a talker she was, she figured she needed all the help she could get on that.

@KoL@Lmpkio

Cydone


"You alright there partner?" Cydone glances worriedly at Antaeus, watching as he sunk with all the grace of keeling horse. Casting his net at Antaeus, Cydone figured he'd cast some inertia reduction so that Antaeus'd have a soft landing with the aid of something to grab. However, he noticed when a small bit of his net melted. Or, well, at least that's what it looked like to Cydone's not particularly chemically trained eyes.

Cydone started spotting the slightest hints of the wraithlike jellyfish and.. "Nope, nope, I don't do ghosts. I'm out. See you later, fellers." Cydone applied a very slight amount of deceleration to Antaeus as he used him as an anchor to pull on with his strings. Cydone pulled out his sword with his hand that wasn't busy pulling on the string and slashed in front of himself nearly a dozen times. The normal "windslash" effect was more of a "waveslash" in this environment, a frothy mix of gas and water caught up in it, but nonetheless, he cleared the way in front of himself as he headed for Antaeus. The water around him flowed out of the way far easier than it should, letting him keep up speed. Just before landing on Antaeus' back, Cydone reduced his own inertia and that of his waveslashes so that they would land lighter than a feather.

Of course, with all that fancy manipulation going on, he forgot to do what he originally was intending and lighten Antaeus' landing.

Cassiopia



"Um.. Uh oh..." Cassiopia muttered, a bit panicked as everything went black and her skin tasted the ink around her. The disadvantage of being able to taste and eat through your skin was that you could taste through your skin. At least she didn't have a biology to speak of to poison by most poisons. ~Man, I'm like the only demon trying to be sneaky and I'm the first one attacked.. That's just my luck. :( ~ She despaired and moaned internally, as she was battered around with clubbing tentacles. Her gelatinous form easily withstood the blunt attacks, a few bits getting spattered away, balling up protectively around her Necrolimb armor that wasn't quite as resilient to physical trauma.

Without much ado, she was eaten. It was after the eating that most of the ado occurred. Just past the beak, before she could reach the potentially dangerous stomach, if the being's acids were stronger than hers, her Necrolimb's blade and grasping arms shot forth, stabbing into the "esophagus" of the Kraken and anchoring herself in place very painfully.

~These won't do much damage out and abroad in the ocean, but fired inside an enemy might do some damage. Let's ricochet some rounds inside the mantle.~ Cassiopia Necrolimb armor unfolded a few heavy machine guns barrels from Cassiopia's torso. Unlike the Machina, Cassiopia didn't have the industrial knowledge or base to swap out or mod her weapons for the fight, being a scavenger rather than an original creator. But her weapons could still fire in wet conditions (seeing they were frequently fired from inside her body), even if the bullets normally wouldn't travel very far underwater at all. But inside the Kraken, pretty much anything they traveled through would be damaging the Kraken, and its protective/bouyant mantle would serve to cause the machine gun rounds ricochet inside it's soft fleshy bits. She fired, lighting up the inside of the Kraken.

If that was enough to kill it, she'd open the beak, reclaim the parts of herself that had been splattered away, and begin zombifying the Kraken.
Sapphire Pink



Pink hesitated as Deva's words reached her brain, looking up at Ruxen's face, then back down at her foot. Then at her own hands as she let go. "Whooah. I think you're right. I'm full. This is.. Huh." Pink normally drained people's negative emotions more or less instantly, where her main gate was how much emotions they had to eat, rather than transfer speed. When drawing from someone like Ruxen, that meant that in just a few moments, Pink was fuller than she ever been before. She patted at her stomach, which had no sort of physical indication of what Pink had just 'eaten'.

"Ah. Um. I'm sorry." Pink's brow furrowed with manual effort as she apologized to Ruxen, and she said the words with very mechanical pacing. It seemed to imply her thought process was not actual regret, but that she understood this was a thing people said to be polite to each other. "That was very rude of me, thank you for putting up with me." She rose and bowed a little. This part seemed more genuine. Pink was much better at positive emotions (such as thankfulness) than negative (such as regret or guilt).

Then Pink seemed to be puzzled with herself. She was full. This was new. Her only real 'need' was fulfilled. "Ah, what to do next? Maybe I'll do an art? That's a thing people do when their needs are met. Oooh, or I could learn how bows work, so that if someone wants one I can be one. Mmm, yeah, that will make people happy, people always like having better weapons!" Pink started wandering off in a sort of daze, before finally figuring out something to do and acquiring some purpose to her steps.

Cydone


"Nothin' for it but to dive in, a'suppose." Cydone stood at the edge of the water. He didn't reckon there was much anyone could do from up here, so best to just head for the objective or something. And so he did.

Cydone glanced around at the deep sea around him, through his strange little head bubble of air that had been provided to him before leaving. "Hmph, makes me feel like one of them crazy spaceman Machina. One decent dispel and I'm a drown'd man." Shaking his head warrily at the locale and the spell that allowed him to breath in it, Cydone was rather distrusting anything that wasn't familiar or created by his own hands. "Guess we'd better get movin'. A net for fishing as good as I got. Hope someone else has better." Cydone began swimming forward towards the ruins, weaving a net with his Kandata Strings, for combing through the city in search of the staff.

Cassiopia



"Will you be alright? You look kinda fire themed." Cassiopia stretched a little, as futile as the motion was with her physiology, as she questioned one of the other demons present, Khaine. Still the Necrolimb armor she was wearing could use the stretching.

Whether he responded or not, Cassiopia cannonballed into the water, figuring the answer wasn't too important. Either she'd be strong enough to claim the prize for herself, or she wouldn't. Whether the demons as a faction won or lost wasn't important to her.

~Well, this is kinda weird.~ Cassiopia found herself sinking, though not very fast. ~I bet I'd be buoyant if not for the Necrolimb armor. Guess I should shapeshift into some sort of aquatic creature. What's the most succubi-like aquatic animal? Eh, I dunno, I'll just roll something quick with good nightvision. Maybe a Mako?~ Cassiopia shapeshifted into one of the general fast swimmer fish types, pulling the Necrolimb armor inside of herself for reduced drag, and started swimming.

~Well, if I was a super scary magical beast, and was hiding the staff, I'd hide in the super scary chasm. Guess I'll check there first.~ Cassiopia made sure she had some decent camouflage dark top and lighter bottom with illuminated spots to mimic the lights above as she descended. Sure, it was no Machina optical camouflage, but it had served fishies well for as long as there had been fishies.
I'd like to submit one last ability for Cass. Thought I was neglecting her slime side a little.

Omnivore- As a slime, Cass is capable of eating anything, including rock and metal, given enough time to dissolve it and break it down, as she's not as acidic or caustic as some full-"blooded" slimes. That said, while she can sustain herself on anything, she can only increase her size as full slimes do by eating things that also appeal to her Succubus nature. Her maximum mass is currently x8 of her normal, and without continued feeding, she shrinks back to normal size (aka, between battles, returns to normal size). When sized up to her maximum, which takes a fair bit of feeding, she's not very subtle about her slime nature, even with her prodigious shapeshifting, as her succubus traits are spread a bit thin at 16'8". Ignore the oozing.
@KoL You've allowed spider-sense precognition abilities (which is what his is described as) on Tatiana and Artoria. They're both gone now, so no worries.
@KoL Huh, weird, you've given preview-esque abilities out like candy before. Is it mostly the doubling up on dodge that's making the issue?
@thewizardguy It is crazy, silly, and terrifying. Well done.
