Upon Celestial Tiger: Chapter One

Post by Kooshie on Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

A small, fast space yacht. The last owner named it Celestial Tiger.

Three small bedrooms (with bunks), one bathroom. Very small storage hold. combined dining/living area. Everyone's going to hate each other by the end of this road trip.

The ones in the bubbles ended up over a cliff edge, and fell several hundred feet to land on rocks. Oops?

The mixture of bubbles, bullets, and rocks proved to be effective. The creatures probably got few, or any, bites in at the group before being killed or driven back. They were vicious, but by no means accustomed to fighting a group of trained soldiers and magic users.

"fall back!" Luka shouted as the animals began to retreat, they needed to take the opportunity to escape, before the survivors regrouped and decided to attack again.

Shane and Helen would guard the rear as Starr turned to leave the area again. None of them wanted to stay here.

Tala nodded at Luka's advice, and stayed near the back of the group, occasionally turning and shooting at any of the creatures that came too close. Ethan stayed near Starr.

The creatures kind of followed, but were definitely losing enthusiasm, and more tailing the group than directly attacking at this point.

Shane didn't want them following the group back to the more populated paths, so he flew at the group, screeching at them to try to get them to leave them alone.

Starr would stay close to Ethan as they headed back tot he ship.

The monkey creatures fell back more at Shane's screeching, and as the forest thinned, they turned back entirely and vanished back into the underbrush. It seemed that open terrain and people who fought back didn't appeal to them much.

Tala looked back. "They seem to be leaving. Excellent!" she said approvingly. "All my crew shall receive offerings of food that is junk in reward!"

Starr stopped to catch her breath as Shane and Helen returned to their humanoid forms then came up to the group again.

Luka let out a relieved sigh, holstering her gun again and hugging herself. That was awful.

Swarm recombined. "We are sorry we could not do more."

"You did what you could, and there is nothing more a captain can ask," Tala told Swarm. She looked at the others, "Is anyone injured?"

Ethan shook his head. He'd escaped without a scratch, yay.

Starr had gotten scratched on her arms, though she wasn't too worried about them, they weren't deep.

"We are fine" Shane said as he and Helen rejoined the group. Their scales and defenses had kept them safe.

"I'm alright." Luka checked herself over though, just in case. "what were those things??"

"Excellent. It seems we have once again prevailed in the face of adversity," Tala said, pleased.

Shane wouldn't have seen much information about them, just that the creatures were called 'shrub-rats' by the locals and that they should be avoided.

Shane relayed what little information was in the brochure and frowned, shaking his head. "What do they do when those things grab a tourist?" He wondered at the lack of security here.

Tala shrugged. "Mayhap we should speak to someone before we return to our ship."

Luka frowned. "Maybe they don't care about the safety of their visitors." She looked annoyed.

"We should definitely tell them we were attacked" Shane said with a frown. "At the least they should have better warnings about the things than just 'run away' from them." He was not happy with that.

The group headed back toward the visitor building near their ship. There were a couple of rangers there, one Terran while the other was two legged with four arms. They were talking together cheerfully.

The rangers looked up from their joking as Shane came over. "Hey man, what's up?" The four armed one asked.

"They should drive the disgusting things out." Luka spat. Ecology be damned, hostile animals should be shot or contained gah. She fell silent as the rangers approached, trying not to stare too hard at the multiple limbs of that one man.

Shane looked at the rangers then pulled out the map, pointing to about where they had been "We just got attacked by those creatures here."

"Those creatures?" The Terran asked. "You mean the shrub-rats?"

The four armed guy swore. "It's not even the season for them to be here!"

"Well they ARE here, in large number." Luka snapped.

"Darn," the Terran sighed. "Guess we'll have to start warning people to stay in the open areas again. Are any of you hurt? Usually the bites don't get infected but you never know."

"Starr got scratched, I think everyone else was quick enough to not get hurt" Shane said, looking to the group again then back to the rangers.

"Good, good," The Terran said, relieved. "Shrub-rat bites hurt like the devil, let me tell you. Thankfully they're a picky species, they usually stop trying to eat non-indigenous species after a few bites."

The other ranger nodded. "Yeah, when the rats are in season, all us native rangers get to take a few months off duty so less edible rangers can work."
