Outside Chel'el'sussoloth: The Mushroom Forest

Outside Chel'el'sussoloth: The Mushroom Forest

Postby Ravinous » Tue Oct 26, 2004 5:12 pm

Purpose: ((This place is created for gathering both Alchemy Supplies and a place for new playes to Adventure.))



=====Setting======

The celing is pitch black, spare the small illumination of blue lights from the glowing fungus as moss that grow hear. Large mushrooms loom over head, some giving off a pugnent moist smell of mildew. The floor is mossy and slick, small lakes and ponds form, giving this place and almost swamp like quality if compared to the surface world. Incects chirp and the sound of larger creatures can be heard.

Spiders are in abundance, from the very small, to rumors of even larger ones. The aura of this place is calming at times but this is subdude due to the smell and sounds echoing can cause anyone to get lost if they travel too deep into it's hypnotic glowing depths.

It's actually thanks to the glowing fungus that this place has trapped many a traveler. It is a maze of illumination, beauty, and deciet.

Gion faced the entrance of the forest. The blue illumination of glowing mushrooms seemed to make it glow as bright as a full moon on the surface. The sound of running water and chirping insects filled the air as the shadows of the fungus and stalactites loomed over the parts not lit by the blue light. Occasionally a swift shadow would move in the distance, but it's shape was distorted by the low lighting.

"Well Illithar, welcome to the Mushroom forest," he said with a grin. "Careful though, there are things almost as bad as full grown demons here..."

Ashuran stepped up besides the merchant, brushing his hood back and looking around the scenery, his eyes carefully scanning everything.
calmly he reached back, loosening the straps holding his kite shield in place, making it easier to grab and done it in a hurry.
"i had better go first."
he took a few steps, positioning himself betweem the merchant and whatever threats might be in front of them, while he looked sideways through the corner of his eyes.
"wich way are we going?"

"We head in straight, not straying from the path," he said. "Some of the holes made by the water, moss, and fungues here are very deep, so falling in with armor would be certian death here."

He continued in pulling out his longsword just in case. He also scanned the surroundings for anything that might serve him medically, or in other possible matters.

He picks a few sulfur shelf's from a rock and tosses one of the flat platter shaped mushrooms to Illithar.

"These make a good snack," he said. "They have a surface bird like taste and texture, just don't eat the middle, it's kinda like eating... how to say it, wood."

He picks a few orange glowing mushrooms, they smell like fruit, and look good.

"Ah, jack-o-lanterns," he said. "Good for clearing the system, but only if mixed with few other goods, otherwise you got a good way of poisoning the stomach. Great for pranks, since it's not likely to kill you, just make ya vomit.

He continues to rummage and pick the fungus.

((Yes, I did some mild research, some don't grow underground, but I thought with the forest being full of other species I would mix it up a bit... plus I now know their is such a thing as a Jack-o-Lantern mushrooms >.>...))

Ashuran looked at the mushroom for a second, then handed it back to Ravinous.
"im not hungry right now."
he turned back to the path and continued to scan the darkness for any signs of predators.

Gion takes the mushroom and places it in a sack.

"I don't know why your this jumpy, it a rutine gathering," he said, now picking some Deathcaps. "Though it is nice having some insurance from danger."

The forest seems to go quiet suddenly, the chirping of insects stops. And the smell of rotten meat fills the are. There is a clacking, like that of two stones being hit together, with a slight, but somewhat high pitch clicking.

Shadows are moving from mushroom to mushroom...

Gion looks about.

"Odd, they shouldn't be this close to the edge of the woods," he said, looking around the at the shadows, which were distorted by the lighting of the fungus. "Looks like it's not such a rutine trip."

Ashurans reached over his shoulder and grabbed the hilt of his sword while his eyes followed the movement.
"spiders? is there any chance they will attack?"
he sniffed the air, his nose wrinkling slightly from the stench.
"it smells like something dead is nearby...maybe the came to feed on the carrion"

" I don't know, the spiders here are meat eaters," he said. "Usually only the larger incects, but still..."

He looked around agian, constantly straining through the shadows. The clicking got louder, and the stench stronger.

"But if they do attack, don't fall into any water around here, it's deep, and they'll probally take advantage of that."

"don´t worry, if i fall in the water, i would be dead by then anyway."
he drew his sword from it´s scabbard and reached back with his other hand, grabbing the shield and quickly donning it.
the blade almost shined, the blue light reflectin of the flawless, razor sharp edge.
Ashuran turned towards the direction the sound came from, straining his eyes for the first glmpse of whatever was aproaching.
"judging from the sound and smell, we have a big one coming this way..."

The ground now shakes and the mushroom stocks wave. A long black spine like leg, at least 6 feet high, falls forth from the darkness, 8 black eyes come forth as a giant maw clicks than opens and screeches at the party.

It's body was shining black, hairless, spare a few sharp spured hairs on the tip of its legs. It's outer skin seemed like a hard shell, a distinct red mark on it's back.

((Think a very big and hungery Blackwidow))


"Um, well," Gion said, now putting away his longsword and pulling out his great sword, for obvious reasons. "Do, uh your, stuff?"

Ashurans eyes narrowed, taking in the creature.
then he loosened the straps on his kite shield and dropped it to the ground.
it would be no use against something this big.
he grabbed his sword with both hands, getting into a fighting stance, holding the sword vertically besides his body.
"i suggest you stand back"
his voice was calm, his face betraying no sign of fear.
in fact there was a hint of eagerness.
suddenly he dashed towards the spider, tilting the sword to a horizontal position, holding it slightly behind himself as he ran.
putting all his strength behind the blow, he swung the sword in a broad, horizonal arc with both hands, aiming for the spiders two front legs

"Alrgiht," he said, standing back. "I'll give magic support then."

The swing of the sword almost caught the large spider off gaurd, it reared up, but not without it's right leg being cut at the tip, sending greeen blood and small peices of spider muscle across the cavern floor. It screeched with a defening sound, high pitched that it could make the ears ring.

It landed back, but then lunged with it's fangs, spitting a clear liquid from it's mouth...

gritting his teeth as the high-pitched noise grated at his ears, he continued forward, changing direction to avoid the acid.
he mostly succeded, a few acid splashes hitting his cloak and eating right through the fabric, although doing no damage other than a few scorch marks to the armour beneath.
using the momentum of the swing, he positioned the sword at his side again, similar to before, only at the opposite side.
he twisted his hands shortly, getting a more stable grip on the hilt, then swung it upwards in a diagonal arc, aimed for the rearing spiders belly.

The sword slashed across, orange sparks hit acrossed it, as though it were full plate, the sword was deflected by the thick exoskeloten. The spider reared up agian, an stabbed it's large front left leg at Illithar, screeching and clicking loudly, it's acid dripping from the mouth, but now seemed to be building up pressure for another spit.

Gion was smashing death caps rather quickly into a fine powder with a rock and a piece of parchment.

"Keep em busy a little longer!"

as the giant claw-tipped spiderleg came crashing down on him, Ashuran threw himself forwards.
evading the spiders strike, he landed on his stomach, sliding past the head and under the spider, the pieces of armour not covered by his cloak ground against the rock, sending sparks flying and filling the air with the schreech of metal.
as he ground to a halt, Ashuran pushed of with his arms to get up.
the weight of the massive armour worked against him, but 15 years of physical training and the stress of constantly wearing the armour had strengthened his muscles.
with an awesome display of both physical and mental power, he got to his feet quickly, grabbing his sword firmly.
aiming upwards, he thrust at the the spider again, this time aiming for the joint connecting the upper body and the abdonmen.
