This event will conclude on 4/1/2014, so you have a good while. Please have fun with this!
Location: Ikana Valley
The valley walls stood high before the troupe, baring much of the wind and lightning that flashed without abandon in the skies above. Below the yellow soil was drenched in the rain, causing each step they took to be laden with muck. Ryukyu walked with his hand trying to block the rain, searching for his father with what little eyesight he had. The storm was much to strong for the man to even glimpse at the landscape around him. His nanny Twitch strode in beside him drenched but looking comfortable. "My father, Twitch, can you locate him?"
The Ringmaster's voice was raspy, nearly hidden by the howl of the wind that circled around the great walls. The orange Zora looked about carefully, taking in the sights and smells of the abandoned valley. It was only the troop's Dodongo caravans that strode the streets of the mining town. "Not even a soul walks these streets."
She yelled above the thunder. Ryukyu cursed under his breath, swearing about his father's wandering tendencies and about his lack of sight. "Fear not my child, your father will return."
The hermaphrodite seemed very sure of herself as she smiled at nearly blind man beside her, who gave a shy smile back at her. "Alright then,"
Turning he began to address the troupe. "With this storm we will not be able to set up our tents and ready ourselves for our appointed show, hide yourselves among the Dodongo and the caravans! Our brute animals shall keep us safe from the horrors that lurk these streets at night."
Ryukyu saw the leaders of the factions ordering their members to seek safety at their assigned Dodongo, the green haired man caught a glimpse of a familiar shape with two heads, he called to her. "May, Fey! Hurry collect your sodding cloths and find shelter under Yalissa!"
He waved at her and began to follow her, before realizing that he was missing a familiar Zora at his side. "Twitch?"
Ryukyu hollered back behind him; the weather was getting bad now. "I have a bad feeling Ryu."
Her voice was low and quiet. Ryukyu wasn't even sure that he heard her right, but she was beside him once more and giving him a pat on the back quickly departed to the Truth factions caravan where their leader Yela waited for her, Ythreln stood a bit a way from the Truth caravan. Ryukyu could make out the shape of his best friends face, no words where spoken between then and they departed for their designated caravans.
Both had the same feeling: something was not right with this valley.
The foreboding Stone Tower rose high above the storm claiming its space in the valley, its history of bloodshed seemed to cause the very air to be thick, to make the rain feel more like blood.
~~~~ "I do not remember having such a agreement."
The Ringmaster folded his arms as he addressed a cloaked figure, the Garo symbol was faded but very clear on the hunched forms garments. "I think you heard me wrong. "I remember quite clearly our agreement.
The raspy voice murmured, the cave they where in did not seem to even let a sound from the storm outside leek into its damp interior. "We few of the kings servants remain to guard the tower... To keep that curse locked inside." "Remnants. Remnants of a curse. Obviously you have not been doing your job. People still die here, this is still a cursed place."
Anger seemed to be coming from the Ringmasters form, as lanky and breakable as it seemed. His hat was drenched by the rain and his face was glaring down at the small and old figure. "Our gods... Our gods are angry, we are no longer her favorites... She has cursed us..
" "Kotaku has not forsaken you you old ninny!"
Clearly angry now the tall man grabbed the other man by the collar and hoisted him up as easily as a child's blanket. "They why have monsters begun to rise once more?"
The response was nearly silent. Both of them stood quietly for a moment before the Ringmaster set the Garo down and turned towards the cave entrance. "This storm,"
A grimace traced across the ringmasters lips for a second. "My pets, my son!"
Ryukyu was not sure who heard it first; the scream of a miner. The storm was still raging outside the caravans, but sticking his head out in fear he looked about the darkened streets. Nothing was out there at first, but then he heard Ythreln holler a warning. Suddenly a outline reached his vision; a man wrapped in soaking bandages moved towards them slowly, followed by a cloaked figure with a familiar cloak. It was one that Ythreln wore occasionally; then it hit him, it was a Garo.
It was to late though, the monsters where upon the caravans before anyone could even think.
This is a main plot point in the story
