I am now all animes

Arcadia's a wonderful place to live. From the Ko-Sak colony of Fuji, you get a lovely view of the planet's indigenous jungles, and Konohana-Sakuya luxuries and security make sure that your vacation is one to remember.

BUT gently caress THAT

You're a long shot from Fuji, friends. I mean, if you squint, the dented, rusted ATV you just fell out of maybe kinda resembles the city possibly, but otherwise it's jungle all around. At least you're not far from the settlement you were supposed to meet your contact in. That part's good.

Oh, right. I forgot. There's that other ATV full of marauders that are out for your blood. That part's not so good.

"We don't take kindly to Ko-Sak dogs like you, around here!" The driver says as he hops out and pulls a shotgun from under his seat. Probably not the best place to put it, but now's not really the time for a firearms safety lecture. These guys seem to think you're working with Ko-Sak. That's not good. There's four of them, and four of you. Pretty nice odds, if I say so myself. Well, while you're here, why not dust yourselves off and warm up a bit?

as THE BEAST QUEEN (Mors Rattus)

Hey Eina, you should be very familiar with these jungles. Where are your beasts to help you now?

as THE LEGACY (Kumaton)

Well well. Looks like the old man's come out of retirement. Thought you got out of the business long ago. What makes you think you can kick it with the new generation?

as THE LOOSE CANNON (TheTatteredKing)

Jesus Christ, look at you. You're more unstable than anybody else on this goddamn ball of trees. Are you gonna behave? What am I saying, of course you're not!

as THE AUTONOMONK (Comrade Gorbash)

What's the Wuclang Secret? Come on, you can tell me!

Prepare for combat and roll initiative! Roll a 4dF and I'll suss everything out.

Omri knew what he was getting into. It was gonna be dangerous. He would have to go against other hunters, the wildlife, people with better and newer firepower than his Clydesdale and whatever guns he could procure. There's one thing that kept him calm, though - all these kids, the ones looking for the Motherlode, the ones covering the jungles - they're all working off the rules Omri wrote. He was the one who tested the tactics, he was one that plotted the strategies. And, of course, he kept the best ones for himself.
When he went to Ko-Sak and was assigned to this group that he had never heard before by a overly-enthusiastic Izanagi employee and shuffled onto a rusty ATV (couldn't they afford better? Whatever.), he didn't know what to expect, other than that none of the guys around him had half the experience as he did, or, for that matter, knew who Omri was, as he was wearing a brown cloak to cover up his tattoos. You couldn't call Omri humble.
There's a young kid covered in teeth and fur, an even younger kid that looks like a walking junkyard, and a well-prepared merc covered in stuff that she doesn't look sane enough to operate. Yep. Sounds about right.

Of course, that has to go to ^#$@. The ATV gets bombed, and Omri gets thrown out the back. The cloak comes off in the tumble, revealing the hides of extinct animals and the tattoos covering his body. The next thing he knows, he's face-to-face with a shotgun.
With a somewhat-smile, somewhat-scowl, Omri pulls out the recoiless rifle he has strapped to his back, since he still doesn't trust all that instant constructing tech all the kids have nowadays. Without thinking, he pulls out a ballistic shell from one of the pouches on his chest, slams it into the cylinder, and levels it at his attackers, hoping that this'll keep his assailants away - or make them start attacking him. He missed getting shot at.

You're not on IRC, so a reminder that you're on this job for Izanagi, not Ko-Sak.

Communism will help more white people than anyone else. Any equal measures unfairly provide less to minority populations just because there's less of them. Democracy is truly the tyranny of the mob.

"Oh hohohoho!" Tami let's out a belly laugh after she settles upside down being thrown from the vehicle. "No dull moments, yes? Will be fun vacation!" With a wild grin she gets to her feet and scrambles to her precious weapons. She cradles her shotgun in her arms. "They come for a big kiss from Lola? Their mother should warn little boys about girls like Lola." She shoots in the air to punctuate her joke. She huddles beside the wreck for cover. "Nah, even better idea!" She attempts a whisper but manages only an indoor voice. She pulls out the launcher from the case she left in the back. Her eyes grow wide and hungry as she caresses the weapon. "Little men must not have car to hide from me with. Ohohohoho."

With a whine of protesting metal and the sharp pop of breaking plastic, the half-crushed and bent door of the ATV peels open. Using the leverage of the robotic arm, Riza launches herself out of the wreck, landing in a combat stance alongside her companions.

"I don't suppose we might talk this over first? No? Well then - time to bring the ruckus!"

Eina grins. If these men don't recognize her, it's their own fault - this is her jungle. "Are you sure you want to do this? Don't you know who I am?" Of course, she only has on her fur and spear now. She doesn't have her entourage with her - because they're out working. Above, Turtak the Skysnake has been scouting ahead, while Hara the Bullymong was out gathering food for when they made camp. (Hara can run fast enough to catch up once they stop.)

Eina does not fall out of the ATV so much as vault, spear in hand, to land ahead of the others, the hide cloak she wears billowing dramatically. Turtak dives, shrieking, to spread his wings wide behind her, as she has trained him to do. (She has learned that looking terrifying is the first duty of a fighting queen.)

"I AM EINA, QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE! Who wants to whet my appetite?"
