A small, thin, robed warrior, his flowing, red hair lifted by a light breeze, descends a leaf-laden hillside. Other than an abandoned well, nosigns of inhabitance make their appearance. The red-haired, brown-eyed figure's sandals crunched on the fall leaves. Ittou Bushi, a lonely wanderer, pauses in his walking, his hand flying effortlessly to his sword's hilt. At once the silence is broken by seven shurikens gliding from a stand of trees. Ittou's sword glints as it flashes out, returning the shurikens to their owner. A scream rings out from within the grove, then, silence. The sword slides back in to its sheath. And he walks on...

He sighs as he walks on, wishing there were no bounty on his head. Shards of memory pierced him yet again, his family, his home, his life, all so distant. Sadness had creased his face, a sadness he bore with him at all times, except during battle. Though he was a pacifist, at times he yearned for someone to fight, to forget everything for a few sweet moments, let his body sway with the movements of his sword and his opponent's. When he was a boy, he had yearned for combat, begging his parents to allow him to train as a warrior sooner. Now, he knew how foolish he had been, for it was this combat that was the cause of his sadness. He walks on...

As he nears a settlement, a man in a watchtower shouts,"It's Ittou! Get inside! IT'S ITTOU!!!!!" Mothers clutching babies and leading children scurry inside, until only the guards remain. "Halt! You are under arrest under charges of- Hey! I said halt! Stop! Don't piss me off!" Ittou sighed as he unsheathed his sword. "You've caught me in a bad mood. I might kill one of you. You, the one that's mouthing off, come and face me."he said in a commanding voice. The man came forward and unsheathed his sword. "Heh...you ain't so tough. I'll take you on right now!" He called a war cry as he rushed at him with his sword out. Outstanding technique, Ittou noted, as he dodged to the side like water, and in one smooth movement, severs the sword at the hilt, just above the man's hand. "I suggest you all leave, as if I were still the killer I was, you'd all be dead." The man stared in disbelief at his useless hilt as Ittou sheathed his blade.

After the cowardly guards fled, he walked through the town, the silence only broken by the sobs of children, hushed by worried hands. Only then did Ittou notice a defiant young woman standing in the middle of the road, two faces peeking out from behind her robes.
"You will NOT kill my babies....and I am willing to risk my life for them, if I must." she stared at him unmovingly. "You think I'm still who I was.......but no one ever understands I'm not a war-hungry menace to society anymore. That's why I wander. Even if I were.... who I was.... do you think I would slaughetr innocent babies? Look into my eyes.... do you see a coldhearted killer?"Their gazes met. His deep brown eyes pierced her, seeming to stare into her very being. Her gaze still did not falter, but her expression changed slowly. "You..... you could not be Ittou..... your eyes.... Ittou killed my family, but you cannot be him..." He stared into her eyes once again. "Your father... Shubo.... he was a fine man... sadly, I am the one who killed him." He reached for his sword, untying the belt, then extended it toward her. "Now, kill me." She backed away, surprised and unsure. "What? What do you mean?" "I said kill me. Do it now. It's what I deserve. Avenge your father." "No..."she said, her eyes full of fear."I couldn't kill an unarmed man-""LIKE I DID SO MANY TIMES!" He suddenly exploded in fury,"DO IT NOW. PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!" He fell to the ground, sobbing, offering the sword up. "Please." Then, she turned and ran, her children tagging along behind her. The smallest one hung back a little. She turned around, her crimson cheeks moved slightly as she uttered the single word. "Thanks." Then she turned and ran, and he was alone...

The night passed, and Ittou was awakened by raucous cheers. He soon discovered he was blindfolded. "All right, punk, I'm taking you in for the reward money." a deep voice rumbled. "But you havn't earned my bounty yet." Ittou replied, discovering to no surprise that he was without a weapon and his hands were bound behind his back. He jumped up, bringing his hands under his feet, and faced the opponent, for he could hear him breathing. "Oh, so you wanna die first, huh?" The unknown bounty hunter's sword pierced the silence as he brought it out of his sheath. He brought his arms up and was dealt a devastating blow in the chest, crunching his ribs with an audible grinding. Ittou listened to the sword whistling through the air and caught it by the hilt, slicing his bonds and carefully removing the blindfold. The sword was, in fact, his own, and he dashed toward the bounty hunter, and, as if he had teleported there, appeared behind him. The sheath slid off the man's waist. Ittou took it, and said sincerely, "There's a doctor over there if you need help with those ribs." He chuckled,"I guess I don't know my own strength." He knew his strength perfectly well, of course, but if he could fool himself into laughing for a little, it was well worth lying to himself. He sheathed his sword and walked soberly out of town.

Just outside of town, there was a river. Spanning the river, there was a bridge. Under the bridge, there was a troll.

It was not a big troll. In fact, in troll standards, it was a real runt. Hardly more than five feet tall, and dressed in crude garments made of ill-cured leather that stank and looked extremely unfashionable, even by peasant standards.

The troll's name was Mogi and he had long ago made a pact with the villagers to earn his keep by protecting the village from marauding kappa traveling in the river.

Ocassionally, he would also eat one of their dogs when they weren't looking.

Today, he was minding his own business, and taking a well deserved rest after fending of a horde of depraved baby killing river kappa when he heard Ittou tramping over his bridge.

He roared in fury. "What idiot wakes me from my well deserved rest after a day spent fending of a horde of depraved baby killing river kappa? Is that you Hito, you miserable cur?" He was clambering onto the bridge as he spoke, dragging a very welll worn axe along with him.

Meanwhile, a group of river kappa swam stealthily towards the bridge under the cover of darkness. They intended to avenge their fallen brothers by killing the troll, before sneaking into the village to kill some babies in a depraved manner.

The depraved baby killing kappa, who were both:

a)depraved baby killers

and

b)kappa

weren't in the slightest bit interested in such civilised human pleasantries such as greetings and introductions. Instead, they surged up from the river in the manner that depraved baby killing kappa are wont to do and charged at Mogi, Ittou and Rand, stabbing furiously with a vicious collection of tridents, pitchforks and butter knives.

Instead, they surged up from the river in the manner that depraved baby killing kappa are wont to do and charged at Mogi, Ittou and Rand, stabbing furiously with a vicious collection of tridents, pitchforks and butter knives.


Mogi grunted briefly in surprise as the river kappa showed themselves. First some stranger had come tramping over his bridge and disturbing his rest in the middle of the night, then another stranger had appeared out of nowhere to introduce himself.

Now, a horde of depraved baby killing kappa had come boiling out of nowhere. Well,this evening was just full of surprises.

He lifted his axe and swung mightily just as the first of the kappa leapt onto the bridge, one massive blade slicing cleanly through the neck vertabra, lifting the ugly head clean off its body and leaving two jets of blood spouting furiously from severed carotids.

He headbutted another kappa, grinning in satisfaction as he felt its' skull crunch and give way. Then he lashed out with a fist that conected solidly with a third kappa's gut, busting open its kidneys.

Evn as it sank to its knees coughing blood he sidestepped the mad swing of a fourth, then lashed out with one foot and crushing its kneecap with one well aimed kick.

Then three more kappa jumped him from behind, and he grunted in pain as he felt their deadly butterknives sinking through the leathers he wore into the soft flesh of his back. Grunting in pain, he shook them off witha roar, two of them falling back into the river.

The third was not so lucky, ladning heavily on the rough swan wooden planks of the bridge. Dazed and winded, the creature looked up helplessly as Mogi savagely brought one booted foot up and then crashing down on the creatures head, splattering bits of brain matter all over the place.

This proved to be a mistake. The bridge, already well worn from years of neglect and shaking form the heavy traffic and fighting, promptly gave way under this latest abuse, depositing Mogi into the river...

OOC: Guys, I'm really sorry I wasn't here, but I'm back! Yay!

IC: Out of the corner of his eye, Ittou saw Mogi bravely fighting the depraved baby-eating kappas, then as he squished one's brains, the bridge broke. "YOu two get the kappas! I'll get Mogi!" He then sprinted as fast as he could, about 40 MPH, which is pretty fast considering he wasn't pissed off or on steroids. Silly athletes.... Anyway, he jumped in and swam quite fast for an ant toward shore. Once Mogi was ashore, Ittou joined the others, decapatating the last kappa before the other two knew what happened.

Mogi blinked. One minute he had plopped smack dab into the middle of the river while surrounded by hostile kappa, and the next, he was back on dry land, and all the depraved baby killers were dead.

He scratched his head in amazement. "And I ain't even drunk!" He thought to himself.
Woefully, he surveyed the ruins of the bridge that had been his home.

"Well, now what do I do?" He asked no one in particular.

"Well, you could always find another bridge," a sweet, melodious voice called out.

The owner of the voice, Sharina, was haning upside down on a branch of a nearby tree, her ash colored hair streaming down and framing her face. She flipped off the branch and landed neatly on her bare feet, making hardly a sound.

She walked up to the trio, her lambskin leggings making soft whispers in the air. Her vest was lace up the front, and a small pouch banged softly against her thigh. Her green eyes danced merrily.

"That was quite a fight," she said, and bowed before the warriors. "I am Sharina. Guardian of these woods. Sorry to see your bridge collapsed, Mogi. Who are your two companions?"

"That was quite a fight," she said, and bowed before the warriors. "I am Sharina. Guardian of these woods. Sorry to see your bridge collapsed, Mogi. Who are your two companions?"


"Wow!wowow!Wowow!" A child-like voice exclaimed just as the women finished her question, interrupting any chance the group of warriors had to answer .

A young female kender appeared from the nearby trees, face brightly lit up with joy, running towards the them. As she ran, her knapsack, which sounded like it was full of spoons or something, kept banging repeatedly her side and the hoopak she carried gave out a whirling sound. Clad in a mismatch of a green top with red leggings, she's not exactly a welcoming sight after a battle, than again, no kender is.

"Have you ever seen anything like that? My oh my! It was fantastic! Those kappas never had a chance! Their brains were splattering all over the place. And that headbutt, ohhh, that must have been painful! Too bad there weren't more kappas. Than again, it would be great no to than we wouldn't have this nice meeting right? Right? By the way where yer all from? I'm Shanas and-"


Her vest was lace up the front, and a small pouch banged softly against her thigh.


"Hey, that pouch looks like it might drop or something. You know, you should always carry a knapsack like mine, much safer I tell yer. You wanna let me keep it for yer? Lots of people let me keep their stuff in here, though I wonder why none of them have ever asked them back."

"Well, hello, everyone. This group has suddenly grown very large."He laughed a little. "I'm sorry, I nearly forgot to introduce myself. My name is Ittou Bushi." He bowed low, and his soft red hair parted like water, revealing his scar. He soon realized this and quickly stood back up.

Mogi the troll blinked at the newcomers that had suddenly appeared out of nowhere. Funny, he never knew the forest near the village had a Guardian. In fact, he had never noticed that there was a forest near the village. A few piddly trees yes, but not a full blown forest with mossy tendrils dangling dwon from branches like green clouds.

Maybe he could move into the forest and hunt rabbits and deer. That would, he supposed, probably be better tasting than dogs.

"Name's Mogi" he said to the self-proclaimed guardian of the forest. "I don't suppose you'd be looking for a gardener or something in your forest? I could work hard, in exchange for somewhere to sleep and a few rabbits and deer every now and then. It'll be worth it. I have many talents."

The troll drew himself up to his full height, declaring proudly. "I can bash things pretty good with my axe. And I know how to set traps for dogs and rats and things. I can also bash things pretty good with just my fists alone. I can sing too!"

He then began a horribly loud and off-key rendition of a bawdy drinking song he'd once heard in the village tavern.

"Oh, the buxom lass of Kincaddy,
She had breasts like melons,
bigger than those in any nursery.

Her lips were full and red,
and her butt-"

That was when he saw the "child", talking cheerfully at a tremendous pace.

"Oh hey!" the troll protested, "get back to your bed!" he said absently. After all, he did have a duty to discharge, though with his home gone, he supposed the contract could probably be considered void.

Mogi had already been heading towards the kender, meaning to escort the "child" back to the safety of her home when Ittou spoke up.

"Oh, hello, manling." He said absently, not really paying attention. They all looked alike to him, and their names were all funny sounding.

Now Mogi. That was a name to be proud of. A simple, strong name.

12/04/2004 6:05 AM

Sarina glared at the kender, and cluthched her pouch tightly. One could never trust a bloody kender. That was a known fact. She smiled at Mogi, and nodded.

"Aye, you could live in the forest, and take your leisure at hunting small animals and the deer. I'd be wary of the deer during mating season though. They get a bit crazy."

"Wow! You're really great at singing! Have you ever thought of performing in my village? You'd be the star attraction of the local tavern! Everyone would love you, especially with the axe of yours. Yeah, that axe would get everyone's attention. You know, that axe reminds me of a dwarf I once knew and he'd-"

The kender spun around to face Ittou.

"Hey, you look familiar, have we met? You know, you look just like my uncle's cousin's brother's nephew, yeah, the one who got into trouble with some merchants. Yeah, that's the one, you look just exactly like him except that he always goes around wearing this ridiculous leggings that made him stand out like-"

The kender noticed that the forest guardian was closely guarding the pouch, increasing her curiousity of what lied within.

"Woooah, must be something special inside it yes? Come on, you can tell us. Its not a secret right? Or is it? Is it dangerous? Come on, let me take a peek?"

"'Ere now, stop bothering the nice lady, and follow me back to the village. I'm sure your parents must be worried about you." Mogi said, laying a restraining hand on the kender, whom he still mistakenly thought was a child.

"Unhand that child, troll!" called the cracking, screechy voice of a boy experiencing puberty. A thin lad clad in an overly large, somewhat dirty town guard uniform came rushing forward from the direction of the settlement. An equally large helm obscured his hair and sides of his head, but what could be seen of his face was marred with pimples.
Bright(almost disturbingly bright) green eyes glared defiantly at the troll.

"You're under arrest for the... err... the being of a troll" A sweating hand fumbled to find the hilt of the teen's sword, "Come peacefully, I dont think you'll want me to use force."

"You're calling me a child?!"

The kender asked, voice growing a bit louder than before, obviously dissappointed with the term. She folded her arms, sulking. She took a deep breath before continuing,

"Look here young one. I've been walking around in circles for ages, long before you were born. Well, count to think of it, not too long, but i guess you can say its quite long because i had to run away from that cook who said i took his spoons but i didn't and he chased me all the way back to Hylo and I was tired and he was tired so that's why i told him to come back here and he wasn't having all these excuses so he chased me again to i don't know where and i think that should be the time YOU were born and i kept running till i reach this garden which had this lovely looking apples and, and-"

Sharina sighed, and shook her head. What a motley bunch this was. A kender, a troll, a teenager trying to be a man, a person singing awful bar tunes, and a warrior. Oh well, she'd seen her fair share of strange things before....she supposed she should be used to it by now.

"The forest has been hidden...until now," she told Mogi. "I didn't want the villagers or the depraved baby eating kappas finding it."

She looked over at the teenager, holding his helm, and glaring at the kender. She shook her head again. Youths often were foolish.

"Let him see your helm," she said. She turned to the kender. "And if you try to pocket it, I'll let him punish you. Understood?"

Mogi sighed. "look, there's no city within a mile of this village," he said, turning to point it out to the youth. Then he stopped dead in his tracks.

Because where the village had been was a city. A huge, bloody city with iron -forged walls soaring hundreds of feet high. And the tops of which suddenly blazed with brilliant light.

There was a steady whupp-whupp-whupp sort of sound, and a dark shape flew over the walls towards them, the noise intensifying as it neared.

A single brilliant shaft of light probed the ground before it, as if looking for something.

"Someone tell me I'm drunk," the troll moaned.

The youth shot a look at the troll that clearly stated that he probably was drunk.

"Lets get moving, you crazed bastards..." the youth muttered irritably, and started shuffling back towards the city.

Wait a minute, maybe it was 'Reorx's socks!'? Yeah that's probably it, it sounds better doesn't it, socks compared to moustache? Anyway,"

Sharina walked up the the young guard, and slapped him across the face. She glared at him, and was barely restraining herself from doing further damage to him.

"Young one, I'll have you know that I have been guarding this forest for centuries, and never has there been a vile city, such as the one that magically appeared. It's always been a peaceful village." Sharina said coldly. "Well, except for when those damned depraved baby eating kappas show up. That usally happens about once a month. They never learn."

She walked away from the youth, and stared at the city. She didn't like it, or the way it had just showed up. What was going on? She glanced at the guard, and narrowed her eyes again.

"This city didn't show up until you did," she said. "Tell me, are you a god? Or a sorcerer?"

The youth glances up, taking his first notice of the flying machine with its searchlight.

Gasping in horror, the youth dives and rolls behind a nearby tree. Tearing off the guard uniform, he flings it into the river, as well as the helm that he seemed to treasure such a short time ago.

"No more stalling," came a voice deeper and richer than the annoying teenage voice that the 'youth' had previously been using, "we're going to the city. Now."

"And why," Mogi asked patiently while taking a few easy practice swings with his axe, "should we do what you say?"

Nevertheless, at the same time he kept an eye on the flying object, which was almost upon them.

"And why," Mogi asked patiently while taking a few easy practice swings with his axe, "should we do what you say?"



Eyeing the axe moodily, the 'youth' lets out a small sigh. Quickly, he reaches down into his boot, uncovers a dagger, and, in one fluid motion, sends it singing through the air. The dagger manages to slice through the already corroding handle of the troll's great axe, severing the axe head from the grip.

"And why not?"

Sharina had had enough. She looked at Mogi, and motioned towards the forest.

"You, the warrior, and," she sighed, "the....kender......may come into the forest with me. I'll cloak it once more, and we won't need to worry about this crazy person here."

She walked back into her forest, not bothering to look at the youth. She seemed to melt into the shadows, as she waited to see if anyone would follow her.

The kender giggled, "Wow, did you just reached puberty or something? Boy that was fast! I never realized you can change in an instant, and what a timing too! It must that flying windmill...oh well."

She skipped forward to retrieve the dagger that efficiently severed the axe Mogi was using. "I'll keep this dagger for you, if you don't mind, since you wanna throw it away. Maybe because it's too sharp for you, right? Yeah, who needs a sharp blade like this? I'll just throw it away in my pocket..."


She walked back into her forest, not bothering to look at the youth. She seemed to melt into the shadows, as she waited to see if anyone would follow her.


"Hey you, wait up. I'm coming along."

Shanas skipped merrily towards the guardian, her ponytail swaying sidewards as she skipped. When she reached to the spot where the guardian stood, she turned behind, pointing to the flying object.

"Hey, don't you wanna wait for that flying windmill? I bet it'll look great in your forest. Just imagine, tree-tree-tree-tree-FLYING WINDMILL-tree-tree-tree. You'll be the envy of all the forest guardians. I'm sure I would be the talk of the town if I had a flying windmill in my backyard."

Mogi stared in disbelief at the stub of wood left in his hand. It wouldn't even make a decent club, since the wood had mysteriously rotted. It was, Mogi thought, just part and parcel of a really mysterious and unnerving day, or night, rather.

He perked up right after that however, when the guardian made her offer for refuge. A home and food was something that Mogi would never pass up. The offer seemed only a temporary one, but the troll would take watever he could get.

So he tagged along with the kender, whom he had finally recognised for being what she was, after her indignant outburst at being called a child.

There was a benefit to being a non-marauding, non-violent, honest and hardworking troll. You didn't have a copper to your name, and not a single valuable. So all things considered, he was completely at ease walking beside the kender.

"Say, what's yer name again?" He asked the kender, "I think I forgot in all that confusion there. Are you going anywhere interesting? I might go with you. This place just won't be the same now that they have a city here, them city folk just have no manners, always screaming and throwing stones and carrying on like that. And the noise! Village people are so much more civilized, once you manage to get them out of their hiding places, that is."

The kender stared at Mogi for a brief moment, touched by the troll's interest in geting to know her.

"Wow! This is the first time someone actually asked me what my name was! Most of the time people just give me a name before I got a chance to even introduce myself."

The kender smiled broadly to Mogi before continuing.

"Usually I get these funny long names like 'Thieving Demon' which doesn't describe me at all because I don't have horns on my head and I don't steal too and also a name like 'Hey Give Me Back My Pouch You Two Legged Female Kender Or I'll Chop Your Head And Slice Your Heart Out!' which is pretty long and so difficult to memorize." The kender sighed when she recalled how difficult it is to memorize these long names especially when you're chased by half the town's population.

"Shanas, now that's the name my mother gave me, which is far better than the ones I get from city folk, though I can't say the names the village people gave me are better."

Shanas pointed to the forest guardian.

"I think I want to follow that forest guardian over there. It'll be interesting to see a forest guardian's house. Wonder how it looks like anyway?"

Shanas lifts her hoopak into the air, before exclaiming cheerfully "Let's go to the wonderful world of the guardian's forest! Wopeee!"

Shanas nudged the troll's hips with her elbow, requesting him to agree on her statement.

"Oh, I almost forgot, and we have that flying windmill too!"

12/18/2004 6:09 AM

Mogi thought about that last statement. It had brought up a point that he hadn't considered before. "Lady," he addressed Sharina, "I don't know much about magic, but if you are going to cloak the forest, won't the people in the city be surprised to see a forest suddenly vanish from sight?"

"Vanish?"

Shanas gasped as she shifted her focus from Mogi to the forest guardian.

"You're going to make the forest vanish? With us in it? Oh goody! I've never vanished before in my whole life cause you need magic to do that and I don't have magic at all. Maybe a bit though, well that's what they said when I somehow caused some pouches to disappear into thin air only to appear in my pocket, hehehe."

"You know, surprisingly enough, I don't care what the people in the city are going to think or feel," Sharina said moodily. "After all, that used to be a village, and then some sorcerer turned it into a city."

The guardian looked at the kender, and shook her head.

"The forest will vanish only to those on the outside. We'll still be able to see it. And no, we are not taking that flying windmill with us."

They were illuminated in a bright circle of light, and some authoritative type called out to them from above.

"Halt!" Who dares trespass on the lands of our city?"

At that moment, a pair of enviromentalists appeared, one a lawyer as well.
"You!"
"Yes, you!"
"Trespassers!"
"This forest is a-"
"-Federally Protected preserve! You are trespassing!"
"We need your names-"
"-social security numbers-"
"-and the name of your lawyer."
"And take off that stupid troll mask."
"And those ridiculous midieval outfits."
"The midget too."
"Not midget, Mitch. Little person."
"Right. Paperwork!"
Their unfortunate secretary, Daniel, who came behind them, lugging several articles of very heavy luggage, muttering epithets. He paused for a moment to push his small round glasses up, and one of the enviromentalists grabbed the briefcase he was propping himself up with, sending the secretary to the ground beneath a pile of bags.

He snapped open the briefcase, and he grabbed a pile of paperwork, brandishing it at the troll. Mitch grabbed more paperwork, and shoved it towards Sharina.

Daniel, still buried beneath a pile of luggage, swore violently, trying in vain to dig his way out.

This was it. This was the last straw. Sharina had finally lost her temper. She shoved the man in front of her, and stepped backwards into the forest.

"How dare you intrude upon this sacred land? And how dare you just appear out of nowhere in your sorcerous clothing?" Sharina raised her voice and her arms. "Inhabitants of the forest, hear my plea! The time has come for us to fight for our home."

From out of the forest came a multitude of creatures: Commando squirrels, depraved baby eating kappas, cow ninjas, deer snipers, and many more too numerous to name. They swarmed out of the forest, and enveloped their guardian, protecting her.

"Now who is trespassing?"

Mitch The Enviromentalist was unfazed by the hordes of depraved baby-eating kappa, commando squirrels, cow ninjas, and deer snipers.
He waved the paper in her face.
"Now you're going to get it! Do you not know that experimentation on animals is ILLEGAL in this state??? Clearly you have tried some mind-altering drug on these poor animals!! SUE HER! SUE HER! SUE HER!"

Random Unnamed Enviromentalist, Rando for short, picked up the chant.
"SUE HER!"
"SUE HER!"
"SUE HER!"
"SUE HER!"

Daniel the abused secretary finally managed to get up from under the pile of luggage, pulling twigs and dead leaves out of his spiky dark brown hair. He stopped to wipe off his glasses as the enviromentalists began their chant.
Holy crap. Here they go again.

He put his glasses back on, and stared in shock at who they were suing. Instead of a smutty-faced polluter, or tie-and-suited-experimenter-upon-animals, they were attempting to sue a woman in some sort of midieval outfit.
Daniel stared at her, eyes wide in awe, barely noticing the commando squirrels, depraved baby eating kappa, cow ninjas, and deer snipers that surrounded her.

depraved baby eating kappa


Mogi, who had felt an incredibly painful headache hammering away at him as the night grew progressively weirder, brightened up as he saw the depraved baby eating kappa.

Now there was something he could handle.

He reached out for the nearest weapon he could find, in this case, Daniel's briefcase. "i'll borrow that for a moment sir," he said as politely as a troll possibly could. Then proceeded to bash kappas on their heads, a flurry of paperwork fluttering viciously about him in a storm of papercut inducing lethalness.

Meanwhile, the "flying windmill" had decided the sitaution was more than it could handle. Especially after one of the deer with twitchy hooves had accidentally sent a 7.62 smacking into the bulletproof cockpit screen.

"This is Alpha-Zulu-Seven-Oh-Seven! We're under attack by ferocious deer! Request reinforcements!" The pilot radioed ahead frantically even as he brought the whirlybird about.

The radio crackled to life. "Taggart you miserable maggot! Have you been drinking again? That tears it, get your ass back on the gro-"

The rest was lost in a flurry of static as a squirrel death commando took a flying leap from the treetop straight into the rotor assembly.

"Millenium Hand and Shrimp!" The squirrel squeaked defiantly before blowing itself up, tearing holes in the fuselage and crippling the craft.

12/27/2004 7:30 AM

"Moggi!" Sharina yelled. "Leave the kappa alone! They're on our side for once!"

The forest guardian sighed, and, ignoring the hyper, little men yelling at her, she climbed up onto a branch of her tree, and watched at squirrels attacked anything and everything that moved and looked evil.

Avenging_Angel
12/27/2004 7:56 AM

The enviromentalists shrieked and yelled at Sharina. Rando took out a walkie-talkie, and called someone.

Daniel was having a really, really, really weird day. He gaped at the troll that took his briefcase, before turning his gaze back to the beautiful guardian of the forest.

The walkie-talkie crackled off, and a park ranger humvee drove up.
"Oh, thank god you're here! This woman has been genetically experimenting on animals!"

The park ranger lifted up his hand, quieting the babbling enviromentalists, a walkie-talkie in one hand.
"Now, now, I'm sure they can explain themselves....."

Rando snapped and started yelling at him.
"This is in clear violation of the park's Ordinance 7, clauses 2-5, you are in no-"
He broke off as the park ranger zapped him with a taser.......which looked like a walkie-talkie.
"But-"
Zap
"Hey, stop that!"
Zap Zap Zap
"YAAAAAAAAGH!"

The park ranger stopped tasering the enviromentalist. Mitch the Enviromentalist stared at him warily, then gestured to the helicopter.
"Then who's that??"
"Park ranger border patrol."
"Border patrol?"
"Yeah. Hey, BOB!" the park ranger yelled at the helicopter.
"But-"
Zap

Daniel was extremely confused.
"But what are you going to do with-"
Zap
"Agggh!"
Zap Zap Zap Zap

More park rangers climbed out of the humvee, all armed with walkie-talkie tasers, and began to subdue the commando squirrels, deer snipers, depraved baby-eating kappa, and cow ninjas. Daniel ran around in the background being chased by the head park ranger waving a taser.

"Moggi!" Sharina yelled. "Leave the kappa alone! They're on our side for once!"


"Eh?" The troll eh'd in doubt. "After all the weirdness that's been happening, I was actually kind of expecting that..."

He dropped the briefcase, only to be zapped by a park ranger's taser.

"Ow!" He said. He glared at the man. "Hey! Stop that!"

The ranger zapped him again.

"Ouch!" Mogi flexed a msucular arm. "Huh, such a tiny sting won't threaten me, little man."

Then a horde of rangers surrounded him, tasers flashing successively.

"ohh, ahh , owwie!!!" The poor troll moaned, limbs twitching convulsively.

AT the same time, the crippled chopper, which had been fighting a losing battle with gravity, finally succumbed and crashed, raining sharp and pointy bits of flaming metal everywhere in a bright explosion.

"Don't worry! No one died. Look, you can see their parachutes!" Nobody in particular said, pointing into the distance.

The park rangers had made a collective effort to try and bring the troll down. If one taser was not enough to do the job, than a whole lot of them probably would. One by one, more park rangers joined the fray into trying to subdue the troll, each poking the troll with a taser. As the troll moaned and it's body reacted in a convulsively manner, they intensified their effort, hoping to finally pacify the troll.

"We've got him now boys! Come on! Everybody zap him!"

A female child-like voice suddenly responded by asking a question which sounded honest and innocent.

"How do I zap him?"

The park ranger replied without looking, although the voice sounded a bit strange.

"Just poke the darn taser at him! Don't you know anything?"

The child-like voice replied, sounding a bit embarrass at her lack of understanding of the contraption.

"Ohhh, sounds simple enough."

The park ranger, surprised at the answer, turned to face the questioner, who was an ever bigger surprise.

"What are you waiting for, just zap the-. What the...Who the hell are you?"

In front of him, stood Shanas, the female kender. Standing no taller than his hips, the kender gave him an innocent child-like smile that reminded him of his 5 year old daughter. In her hands however, was a taser pointed directly at his face.

"Owwww my face wowowo..."

"Hahahehehehhohohoho! This is fun! Look at you! Your face is twitching! I didn't know that a man can move his mouth and his nose in so many different ways all at the same time!"

Clearly, the kender was having a ball of a time watching the park ranger's face reacting to the taser. She wasn't going to stop there, after all, it'll be great to see more of them doing the same thing. She shifted to the other rangers, who were so focused in subduing Mogi, that they were caught by surprise by the kender. In a span of a few seconds, all them were rolling on the ground, each holding either their face, stomach, buttocks, or any other spot that a kender would love too see twitching.

"Hahaha. Look at his moustache! It is ALIVE! Hahahaha. Hey Mogi, this one is for you."

Shanas poked the taser at Mogi's ribs, just out of curiousity to see how a troll would react.

"Hey Sharina! There's plenty more of this thingys! You wanna come down here and help me poke Mogi? Hehehe, this is fun. Come on! Just look at Mogi go!"


AT the same time, the crippled chopper, which had been fighting a losing battle with gravity, finally succumbed and crashed, raining sharp and pointy bits of flaming metal everywhere in a bright explosion.


"Whoah! That flying windmill has some of the best fireworks I've ever seen!"

Arms flailing, the ogre sprawled back down again, the last of the fleeing cavemen stomping right over Mogi's groin in his haste to leave.

Satyr ran towards the crowd, holding his arm high in the air. It, like his other arm, was completely covered in fur, and instead of a hand, it ended in a long, curved blade, covered in ancient writings. As he ran, the wind flung his short blonde hair, which covered his body, straight back. He jumped high in the air and landed in the center of the gathering of people. He looked around, lowered his arm, and looked at the people who all seemed to be staring at him with a puzzled look on their faces.
