Mkay. Literally nobody has come back, but I’ll start this while I can.
This is the new Rift. It is six years after Extinction's death. All past major characters are either non-canon or dead. During these six years, the map has changed.
Anyways, the deal is simple; major earthquakes and magnetic behavior has shifted the Rift around and threw different regions into new locations. Many places from before are gone.
1. Deserted Plains: A lonely flatland. Some of the major rivers were buried by sediment, creating the Plains. This area is home to dozens of different species of Stegosaurs and Hadrosaurs, but the apex predator here is Proceratosaurus.
2. High Jungle: A mystical aura waves in the High Jungle. It is said to be the site where Jasper held his last stand against the dreaded Ridley. Smaller predators such as Masiakasaurus live here alongside larger herbivores such as Muttaburrasaurus.
3. Mount Kratakota: A massive mountain that was created by the earthquake that killed Jasper and Ridley. Many dinosaurs usually die here. The dinosaurs that live here are only those that come from Late Cretaceous North America, with the exception of Cathartesaura, which comes from Mid-Cretaceous Argentina.
4. Ruined Castle: The ruined Mount Luckyone crumbled, leaving behind the volcanic shaft. Sinraptors, Deinonychus, and hadrosaurs inhabit the area. And yes, the Goddamned Bats still live here.
5. The Swamp: Kaiser Greedy lived here years ago before his army was crushed. Even now, danger rings in the air. Mostly home to Spinosaurs, Troodontids, and crocodiles.
6. Sandstone Seas: This used to be a huge ocean millennia ago. Coral and sea rocks can still be seen here. Few dare to enter the Sandstone Seas, lest the sun dry them to a husk. You can find some Brachylophosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Lesothosaurus, or Triceratops here, but I’d say about 60% of the dinosaurs here are Velociraptor.
7. The Mountains of Nothingness: Before, this was the dreaded Blizzard. Now, it is a mountain range. The temperature, while still cold, is now warm enough to support life. Mostly home to Cretaceous Argentinean/Jurassic North American/Jurassic European dinosaurs, like Amargasaurus, Apatosaurus, or Juravenator, though Chaoyangopterid(I don’t know how to spell it)pterosaurs live here as well.
8. Hell’s House: An active volcano. Every week it erupts, killing thousands. The only animal that lives here is Tropeognathus.
9. The Y-Knot/Watering Hole: This is the figurative and literal center of the Rift; animals gather to gossip or to trade, hunt together, fight, etc. Hundreds of various species live here.
10. The Wasteland: A swamp surrounding Mount Kratakota. Home to ceratopsians and tyrannosaurs.
11. Xavi River: Formerly the Steam Stream, this river runs boiling hot during the day, but cools down to barely above freezing at night. Nobody lives in the river per se, but they live around it. Spinosaurs can usually be found here.
12. The Boneyard: Thousands of dinosaurs are buried up here on this plateau at the top of Mount Kratakota. Paragon himself died here. Only small carnivores and hadrosaurs live here.
13. Voodoo Forest: The two Twin Towers crumbled, allowing the Fire Woods to grow at a very fast rate. Bad things always happen here, hence the name. For the most part ceratopsians live here, but there are Megalosaurus and Dilophosaurus as well.
14. The Sea of Something: A small sea full of something. Mostly full of plesiosaurs and mosasaurs.
15. The Coral Walls: Coral reefs, just barely covered with water. That's why they are called "Walls". They are also home of Ichthyosaurs and the Almighty...Start playing this in the background...Henodus.
16. Lone Isle: Home of some seagull-like species of prehistoric birds and insects. But the creatures aren't the interesting thing here, it's the mountain's peak, which is made out of a electric crystal meteor that slammed into the Rift precisely 160 years ago. Due to erosion the meteor was sharpened to look like a natural mountain peak...if one considers an electric yellow mountain peak something that can look normal. Because of the height the crystal is on, it attracts very bad weather--there are maelstroms and thunderstorms for all but ten days of the year.
17. Flat Green: No one lives here. It's too small...and flat...and...green.
18. Ravine Nest: A huge ravine where different species lay eggs or give birth. It's divided into two sections--the southern side is occupied by the Outlaws and the northern side is populated by Neutrals and Rebels.
19. The Titan Home: A very strange place. From the ground rise hundred, if not thousands of skeletons belonging to some...massive animals. They look like a big herd of Titanosaurus, all of them two or, rarely, three times bigger than the average size of the normal Titanosaur. The skeletons are halfway in the ground, allowing the rib cages to be used as homes for the many Spinosaurus living here. Only the Outlaws' side is present here--the other Spinosaurus have gone to Mount Near-Isle or to the Neutral/Rebel side of Ravine Nest to avoid being attacked.
20. The Geysers: A couple of hot geysers in the middle of nowhere.
21. Mount Near-Isle: Underwater mountains that could nearly be islands, due to reaching just a couple of meters below the water surface.
22. The Sinkhole: A sinkhole.
23. Vulkaan Eiland: Nothing much going on here. Home of mostly seagull-like prehistoric birds, insects, Kentrosaurus, Deinonychus and Pteranodon.
24. La Palm Tree: An island, just over three square meters, on which is growing a lonely palm. The only visitors this island have are misguided birds.
25. Another Flat: Another flat island no one wants to live on. This one has some trees, though.
26. The Shadowlands: Ceratosaurus and Tarbosaurus. That’s all I can say. Many enter the Shadowlands, but nobody leaves.
27. Leave River: The fast-flowing river that goes through the High Jungle. It is rather cold, but the water is surprisingly soothing. This is because the River of Ice and the Sparkling Creek merged into one river.
28. The Lowlands: Miles and miles of ash. Very few trees, a lot of ferns. Underneath the ash is a vast mud pit. Dozens of sauropod species and theropods live here.
29. Granite Quarry: It may look like a nice vacation spot, but the skeletons suggest otherwise. This is a massive predator trap, full of tar pits and cacti. Nobody lives here for obvious reasons.
30. The Blood Snake: A lake running with blood. The lake and river combined give the appearance of a snake.
31. Lake Lake: A lake.
32. The Nightmare: An extremely deep trench. Nobody except for one can make it down here without being suffocated and crushed by the sheer pressure of the water above.
You must be completely accurate with your characters. The only exception to this rule is the Spinosaurus, in which case I will accept either the bipedal or the quadruped version due to the controversy surrounding it; however, should you use the quadruped version, it must be 100% aquatic.
Small mutations such as being slightly larger than average or having enhanced sight are allowed, but for every strength, there must be a flaw, i.e. a Gorgosaurus with enhanced hearing cannot see as well as a Gorgosaurus without enhanced hearing.
Major mutations such as the ability to spit acid or a Juravenator lifting three tons are not allowed.
Psychopaths are allowed but don’t go too far with that.
Nothing futuristic like robots, electricity control(hey, Noonyeyz), or building advanced stuff(chains, guns, swords, all that).
Character development is highly encouraged.
You can do stuff like do flips or some humanoid things, but, again, don’t go too far with that. Don’t have them be furries(scale-ies?)/borderline-humanoid reptiles.
You can injure other characters, but you cannot kill them without their owner’s consent unless the target in question is a minor character.
Your dinosaur characters cannot visit the Dragonairian Islands, and your draconian/human characters cannot visit the Rift.
No curses or magic or that stuff.
Natural disasters can happen, they should be fairly common in the Rift, but they cannot happen extremely frequently(i.e. an earthquake happening the day after an electric crystal meteor shower).
Anything NSFW such as sex will result in the character(s), and possibly the RPer, being banned.
Overpowered characters can and usually will result in me(or someone else...usually me) killing them.
Certain dinosaurs, such as Mosasaurus and Ankylosaurus cannot be used as characters, but can be found in the wild. The Tyrannosaurus rex and Quetzalcoatlus species are extinct and can neither be used nor found in the wild.
There is a limit of seven major characters per RPer. No limit on secondary and minor characters.
All major characters should be introduced like so:
Name: Mecha Santa
Gender(Biological, not mental; I don’t want to deal with a herd of “transgender male lesbians” attacking me): Male
Age(First in that certain species’s years, then convert it to human years): 40 Desmatosuchus years(20 human years)
Appearance(You can add a picture if you want, but a written description is a must): All gray.
Personality: None to speak of.
Dislikes: Whatever isn't food.
History(Tell us about your character’s backstory): He woke up one day. He grew up. That is all.
Gender(Biological, not mental; I don’t want to deal with a herd of “transgender male lesbians” attacking me): Male
Age(First in that certain species’s years, then convert it to human years): 16 Dilophosaurus years(4 human years)
Appearance(You can add a picture if you want, but a written description is a must): A very dark blue, with red scars all over his face, golden crests, and a white underbelly.
Personality: A fairly depressed individual. This mostly is due to his tragic backstory, which involved his the death of his entire family(as well as the pack of Baryonyx that raised him).
Likes: His very few friends, and finding even the tiniest shreds of hope in the eternal oblivion known as the Rift.
Dislikes: Graciliraptors, the never-ending apocalypse, "Salty," whatever that is, and being told what to do.
History(Tell us about your character’s backstory): Adder is the third youngest child of a batch of five hatchlings conceived by two Dilophosaurus. His mother was killed by his father before Adder hatched. After this his father went insane. He cannibalized Adder’s two unborn siblings, intoxicated Adder’s older sister, drove his older brother to suicide, and became a wanted outlaw before he was captured and executed. Adder was eventually raised by a pack of five Baryonyx, and under their care he learned the skills he knows today. When he reached the age of 13 Dilophosaurus years the pack tried to kill him, as is their custom. He managed to overpower the pack, but refused to kill them. As a result, Adder ran away and lived in isolation from the rest of the world in the Mountains of Nothingness. Two years later he returned to his pack, only to see that they were all killed by the "Salty." To this day Adder makes daily visits to the Watering Hole in the hopes that he can prevent his depression, to no avail. He did manage to make friends with four fellow Rebels that provide him with just enough care that keeps him well away from the desire to kill himself, though his hatred for those that kill innocents or important people will never subside. These four Rebels fight against the Outlaws in an effort to restore peace to the Rift. And yes, I know that I made this description extremely dark and edgy, even by my standards.
Territory(Say where your character lives): Deserted Plains/Watering Hole
Class(Good, Neutral, Outlaw, Evil): Good, though he can verge on being Neutral.
Importance(Major, secondary, or minor): Major
The vast herds of Amargasaurus graze through the Watering Hole. It's uncommon to see them down here; they're normally around the Mountains of Nothingness.
Their red and yellow sails flash like police lights in the night sky. They seem like cows, with their bovine hoots. Stupid cows. Really stupid cows. They're also pathetically slow.
Deep in the undergrowth Adder watches the herd. He eventually strikes, sinking his teeth into a juvenile. He drags it as far away from the herd as possible and feasts. However, just as he begins eating he realizes he has walked into someone's lair. The inhabitant inside awakens, with a red eye piercing the darkness, and Adder runs away.
As morning rises, the herd leaves, and Adder goes back to the Watering Hole. As Adder makes his daily trek, he looks around at his world. It is apocalyptic; a bloodbath; a massacre; ghosts and reapers scavenge the world, looking for survivors. In a world where death runs rampant and freedom is all but restrained(irony), you should always be careful, for destruction lurks around every corner with abated breath.
He takes a drink, and sees the wildlife; an Ampelosaurus uprooting and eating trees, two Falcarius swatting at each other in a fight to the death over a termite mound, three Lythronax prowling the coast, looking for tasty survivors, and thirty Graciliraptor brawling and killing each other over a Medusaceratops carcass. Adder shuddered at the sight of the Graciliraptors; they'd wound your legs and neck, then leaving immediately, leaving no trace of the attack except for disproportionally large pain. Once you fell from your injuries, they'd strip your eyes from their sockets...
Then the skin from your flesh...
Then your flesh from your bones...
Then your bones from your organs...
Then your organs from your life...
Then finally your life from your body, all while you're still alive. Adder knows that recently carnivores have been in sheer abundance, whereas herbivores' numbers are slowly diminishing. Some species, such as Ankylosaurus, Titanosaurus, Machairoceratops, or Utahraptor are near extinct, while others such as Tyrannosaurus rex or Coelophysis have disappeared completely. It is all the result of the apocalypse; a mass genocide that has existed since the beginning of the Rift's removal from the Earth's timeline and will never end. The days are a drought sawing away at the lives of many, while the nights are a nightmare; a shooting range for carnivores.
When Adder looks up from his thoughts, he notices a certain someone at the other side of the lake.
Appearence: A dark Cyan blue. He has a weird little mutation in two of his teeth, the teeth that gives the kaprosuchus their greek/latin name is long and deformed. It looks like a big long tooth with a second ingrown tooth inside it. This helps Lucious with gripping onto prey, but i guess every good thing comes with a bad cach. His front left leg is skinny, shiveled and nervless, he feels not pain in this weak little leg and because of its bad balence, he strugles to chase prey around.
Personaity: A patient, caring croc who never holds a grudge, like to some form of leadership within his group.
History: Son of Pike, the oldest Lucky bitten before the new generation overtook his former glory. Long ago, he made peace with two passing millipedes whom he recodnised has the children of his enemy. Long ago, Pike made peace and helped the two to get back to the mountain before the bats could be released...
Five years later, pike mated and had a litter, the eldest being Lucious. Lucious grew up having speach difficultys and a deformed appearence due to Pikes choice of mate...
These animals know nothing about inbreeding, sorry it had to come to this. Lucious soon got over his speak problems, but never gained a normal body shape, he became the target to bullying and eventully made friends with a Terror bird who has a keritin disease, a Giant bat [Seperate species to the Giant venomous mindless bats and their pygmy cusins] and a Titanoboa.
Welcome to the story of the animals who dont have normal lifes lie you and me.
Adder hisses and walks up to Lucious. He knows Lucious, he's one of Adder's only friends.
Adder begins to speak. As usual, he's very silent and controlled.
Oh, and he has a very slight French accent. Don't ask why.
"Hello, my friend Lucious. I would assume that you would know of the strange Amargasaurus stampedes recently?"
Lucious doesn't respond.
"Hm. Maybe not. Anyways, it seems strange that the Amargasaurus herds would migrate down here. Normally they stay in the Mountains of Nothingness, but now they've been destroying our habitats! Someone must probably be behind this..."
"Aye. I don't get i--"
"THERE'S A FUCKING ASSASSIN ON THE LOOSE OR SOMETHING! Only a mass murderer could get the sauropods down here, right?"
The two stare for a second, and Lucious speaks.
"Well, I guess there could be someone behind the stampedes..."
Adder nods and thinks back to his childhood. He never gets an answer, because soon the Ampelosaurus and two Falcarius run away from the Watering Hole, with the three Lythronax and Graciliraptors following. The foliage shakes violently.
Lucious waddled off to the side, not giving a care for what was happening around him. He placed himself on a warm rock, sumberged his tail in a small puddle and closed his eyes, completely ignoring the fact that Adder was speaking to him.
Becoming aware of Adders presents, he remains still, but says "What is it Adder? what could be so important?"
The trees snap and a posse of carnivores(and some herbivores) files out. A Graciliraptor, two Proceratosaurus, a Huayangosaurus, a Lythronax, three Styracosaurus, and a Dryptosaurus.
In the Rift there are two alliances: the Rebels and Outlaws. Lucious, Adder, and their friends are part of the Rebels, who try and stop the Outlaws' lust for destruction.
The Dryptosaurus, the leader of the posse, begins to speak. He has a heavy American accent.
"'Ere ya traitors are! Ya too 'ad us snoopin' all aroun' tha wateri' hole, ya too did!"
Adder snarls, and Lucious crawls up to Adder's leg.
"Now, mind yaselfes, bruthas. 'Be a shame to return back hom' withou' ya dead bodies fo' we had to mutilate ya Rebels beyon' recognition!"
"Wow, this gang looks so intimidating. I could kill you all without a sweat," Lucious says. He looks over to his puddle.
"Oi, Lucious, shut up. We're gravely outnumbered, and I don't see ourselves surviving this fight. Yes, we've triumphed over many a posse of Outlaws, but that was because Lone Chieftain and Bastion were here. They've since been executed."
The posse stomps and roars. The Lythronax start forward in an attempt to kill Lucious, but Adder suddenly throws it to the ground. He turns towards the Dryptosaurus, yelling "Nobody touches my allies! And if you're an Outlaw, nobody here takes kindly to Outlaws!"
The Dryptosaurus picks him up and tosses him in front of the three Styracosaurus in the back. They stomp their feet and bellow in sync, then throwing him into the air with their horns before launching him at the Huayangosaurus, who swats Adder into a tree. Lucious begins to panic, and Adder can't keep fighting forever.
Fortunately, a sauropod roars in the shadows, its ghastly silhouette scaring off those who draw near. The posse packs up their shit and retreats, vowing to strika another day. The sauropod steps forward next to the two dazed Rebels, and suddenly it's not a sauropod, it's two Rebels standing on top of each other...
Name: CinderSpecies: AnhangueraGender: FemaleAge: 16 Anhanguera years(3 human years)Appearance: Light blue, with red eyes and a white skull-like face(I know, basically a pterosaur version of Lapis). She likes positioning her black head feathers to look like a hood, and she wears a pearl necklace with a Juravenator skull.Personality: She tends to be overly excited about things. I guess you could say she’s more of an optimist than Adder. She’s very smart and makes up for her lack of strength or durability by analyzing her foes, seeking their weak points.Likes: Her friends, fighting against the Outlaws, and eating.Dislikes: There isn’t a lot of things that she hates, but in particular she seriously hates being disrespected. She also hates tyrannosaurs.
History: She has no parents, but her adoptive father’s name is Charizard, a Cearadactylus that served in the Great War and in Butch’s rescue team. After Glove’s death, Charizard married and had three children. He found an Anhanguera egg in his nest, but hatched it and named the newborn Cinder. One day, when Cinder was 8 Anhanguera years old, Cinder’s nest was burned to the ground by a gang of Chasmosaurus Outlaws. Cinder’s three “siblings” and her “mother” burned in the fire. Charizard set out with Cinder to avenge their losses, but the gang struck again and decapitated Charizard in front of Cinder’s eyes. Since then Cinder has lived with Adder, Stalagmite, and Lucious near the Watering Hole.
Territory: Watering HoleSize: ⭐️Class: Good
Name: StalagmiteSpecies: Sauropelta
Gender: MaleAge: 18 Sauropelta years(24 human years)Appearance: Stalagmite is VERY blue. He has a blue body, a blue/purple back, and a dark blue head. His eyes are a lighter shade of blue(Ancile 2.0, I know.), and the spikes around his shoulders are very large and long.
Personality: If Cinder could be considered a mystery, and Adder an enigma, then Stalagmite would probably be a mysterious enigma. Not much is known about him, since he rarely talks and keeps to himself. He’s good friends with Lucious, but they tend to fight over very small things, such as food.
Likes: His allies, Lucious in particular, food, and warfare(but only if it’s for a justified cause).
Dislikes: Pointless fighting, people interrupting/stealing his food, pranks, and sauropods.History: Stalagmite was born without a mother or a father to take care of him. He lived in complete and utter isolation in the Mountains of Nothingness for most of his life, until he reached the age of 10 Sauropelta years, where a volcanic eruption drove him away from his home. He found a Sauropelta herd to live in six years ago, but he had an encounter with Kaiser Greedy, who nearly killed him. Kaiser then proceeded to tear apart Stalagmite’s herd. Due to this Stalagmite has been mentally scarred for life, having no parent figure to raise him. Eventually he joined Cinder, Adder, and Lucious as Rebels.
Territory: Watering HoleSize: ⭐️⭐️
Adder wakes up. "C-C...Cinder? You're alive! I thought you were killed!"
Stalagmite grins at Lucious in his little puddle. "aye. you okay, brother?"(Stalagmite will always speak in lowercase bold, by the way. Just imagine him speaking in a Rattlesnake Jake-like accent.)
Lucious looks up. "No, I'm fine. These Outlaws have been attacking the two of us a lot recently though..."
Adder nods. "Without you two, the Outlaws see us as easy targets."
"THIS WHOLE THING TOTALLY SUCKS! I don't know why the Outlaws even exist!" Cinder stomps the ground.
"indeed. our world is apocalyptic now, we must take sides or die. those who do not side with either the rebels or the outlaws will be purged, corrupted, massacred. we only chose the rebels because we felt it would be right to see peace once more..."
Adder nods again. His eyes twitch from rage. "I only wish to see our world free from warfare...But these Outlaws just keep fucking it up!
Lucious sneezes, "Ah, maybw they should all just go stuff emselves" He dives into the now deep puddle and startes splashing mud everywhere. Adder backs off slightly in disgust as mud smashes near him "Seriously?"
Lucious head pops out that water "Well, i was going to slash mud the moment the outlaws showed up, and my plans havnt changed" he dispears under the water again and mud splashes everywhere, as the water soaks back into the earth and mixes in with the dirt, all you can see is a little mud brown croc twisting and rolling in the sludge.
Adder rolls his eyes and stares at Lucious rolling around in the mud.
"Anyways, we wanted to come here and warn you both about the Amargasaurus stampedes," Cinder states.
"recently the herds of Amargasaurus have migrated down here and wrecked our habitats. there must be someone behind this; they can't just walk down here by themselves."
"I know. I came here to warn Lucious."
Lucious stops rolling around and looks up. "Who?"
"Yeah, you. I warned you about the Amargasaurus."
"tHeRe'S a ******* aSsAsSiN oN tHe LoOsE!" Lucious mimics.
"Good. Great. Fucking beautiful." Cinder shakes her head, her makeshift "hood" falling apart. "Here we are in a warzone and nobody even cares."
There is silence.
Adder picks up some food. A fish for Cinder, a Quagga leg for Lucious, three ferns for Stalagmite, and a small crocodile for Adder. "Enjor this food while you can, this might be our last lunch ever. All the food goes to the Outlaws, so in the rare case that we do find food, make it count."
Everyone solemnly eats their share. Stalagmite eats some of his food, stops, eats again, then stops, before eating again.
"Are you gonna finish that?" Lucious asks.
"for the last time, yes! i am eating all of my food!"
"Well, excuse me! It appears that you can never make up your mind; always starting, stopping, then starting before stopping again!"
"is there anything wrong with savoring one's food?"
"I would really expect you to shove it all down your throat in an endless chasm of gluttony."
"Please excuse me while I take a break so that I don't have to take lessons on how to eat from the likes of y--"
All three look up from their food, and sees another posse of dinosaurs. This is their life; forever hated, forever hunted, forever despised. They are constantly attacked by various gangs who seek their bodies, allowing them to continue their destructive methods undeterred.
The same Dryptosaurus from earlier steps out of the shadows. Behind him are a Gallimimus, a Einiosaurus, a Hylaeosaurus, two Monolophosaurus, two Sinusonasus, two Gryposaurus, and a Lascovaugus.
"'Now we go' al' four o' ya togethe'! Don' worry, this time it'dll only hurt a lot!"
Cinder coughs lazily, knowing that they possess almost no threat.
Lucious, however, thinks otherwise.
"We are gravely outnumbered," he grumbles, in a call back to Charizard.
The others chime in as well.
"When are we ever not gravely outnumbered?" Adder asks back, clearly having fun roleplaying as Butch.
The four step back.
"ready? they interrupted my food! nobody interrupts my food and lives!"
All four charge forward at the posse, ready to shave a head or two.
The war never ends; it always continues year after year. When you're only a band of four misfits going up against a posse of brutish carnivores, you must always be ready to die, and should you ever die you must make it a worthy death...
I would appreciate it if Lucious's words were bleeped, [Censored] he has a good mouth.
Lucious eyes move over to his puddle "Maybe, this could be fun, I want the galli"
If we are outnumbered, then maybe its time for a few of Lucious friends to show up...
Looking at the large number of outlaws, it is ovious they can not fight them all.
Lucious looks within the trees behind and grins, one of the branchs turns, silently reaching down. And before you knew it, one of the monolophosaurus receaved a bad end and was heaved into the trees with massive force. A large titanoboa with the texture of the forrest picked off one, now its time for the battle to commence.
Age:3 years, full grown
Appearence: Textured like the steriotipica bark.
History: Grew up with titanoboas, like a titanoboas, the way a titanoboa should be raised. Good luck hiding from him, Titanoboas he thermal sygnatures. He dosnt reallt talk much, and when he does, its nothing special. Hates the "Pick a side thing" But is an allie anyway. Patient, crancky and very boring, snakes dont have interesting lives, get over it.
Adder runs directly at the Dryptosaurus. Tch. Outlaws...These Plains beasts in particular are a ruthless, crazed bunch. They never fight with honor and will fight to the death. But they are not the only ones.
He makes a bold lunge at the Dryptosaurus and breaks its arms. The tyrannosaur screeches in fright and bites Adder's neck and hurls him up in the air.
I trust Cinder, Stalagmite, and Lucious with my life.
Behind him Lucious crawls up to the Gallimimus, breaks one of its legs, and runs. The Gallimimus hops after Lucious and eventually catches up to the croc. It raises its working leg, prepares to slash him, and rears back its head.
Lucious takes this opportunity to jump on the Gallimimus's neck, eventually cutting the jugular and spilling its blood onto the ground.
My friend Lucious is a very lucky one; his father is a mutant, and despite his flaws Lucious is a very gifted brawler. His tactic of going for the throat and legs is almost always more than enough to wipe out the competition. It is very great that we are allies, for he can probably do everything I cannot.
Adder regains his concentration and punches the Dryptosaurus. While he is stunned, Adder stares at Stalagmite and Cinder.
Cinder was one of my first rivals and the deadliest enemy I have ever fought by far. She nearly killed me fifty times over, as did I.
A Monolophosaurus slithers up behind Stalagmite, and prepares to kill before Cinder knocks herself into it and into the jaws of the Titanoboa.
“hey, it was right where i wanted it to be!”
“I’m certain.” Cinder swoops back to the ground and throws herself at the nearest Gryposaurus, knocking it backward into another.
But eventually we found a cause, and became allies. For this I am glad. Cinder is always studying and analyzing her opponents. I’m sure she could kill me right now without a second thought.
As she takes off, she is attacked by the Lascovaugus. They trade hits, and suddenly Cinder pulls out two daggers made of Sinraptor teeth and throws them. One dagger causes the pterosaur to flinch, which causes him to fly directly into the second dagger, which impales his heart. He falls to the ground in a bloody streak as Cinder flies back to Adder, screeching merrily.
Stalagmite was also encountered by me during my time as a Rebel. He was another Rebel and thought it would be best to become allies. At first, I was disgusted by his brutal fighting methods, and rejected him, thinking him a buffoon.
Stalagmite slams his tail on the ground, but the Sinusonasus he is targeting dodges out of the way.
“Ha! Too slow!”
He doesn’t care and swings again, successfully shattering the Sinusonasus’s jaw into a million pieces.
“ha! don’t care!”
Eventually we put aside our differences and became trusted friends, allies, and brothers. As with Cinder, I am also happy about this...
The second Sinusonasus runs away from Stalagmite, who stomps on her tail. “where are you going?”
He looks quickly at the approaching Hylaeosaurus and Einiosaurus. Stalagmite swings the Sinusonasus into the Einiosaurus’s face, and uses its horn to snap off the Sinusonasus’s upper body. Blood splatters into the Einiosaurus and Hylaeosaurus’s eyes, and they crash into each other, prompting them to fall into the Watering Hole.
“we’re just starting to have fun!”
...because Stalagmite is one of the most gifted fighters I have ever seen.
The Dryptosaurus catches Adder in a necklock and begins to clamp down. Adder retaliates by slashing the Dryptosaurus’s jaws, forcing it to let go. He then does the finishing honors by cleaving off its head.
This is our world. It is a bloodbath; it is the home of hell.
The mooks are all dead; they managed to destroy one of many posses that have threatened them. All four are very bloody and bruised, and they retreat into the undergrowth. There, they see the inhabitants of the Watering Hole return.
Everyone looked around, in case they missed someone and to see if everyone was still on their feet. They see Lucious dragging the galli into the mud and dumping it there, a waste of food, unless your a croc.
"Last lunch we'll ever have, pshh, nonsence, look at all the food, outlaws are just as common as fast food complexes" He laid back in the dirt, as if nothing had happened at all and then looked to the Giant snake hanging in the trees "How long have you been there Rover?"
Rover sounded like a snake, deep and slow "I jusssst got heeerre beforee theeey sssshoweeed up"
"Well, maybe we would be getting more food if our allies were here. But no, Lone Cheiftain(Pentaceratops), Bastion(Hylaeosaurus), and Impaler(Triceratops) are all dead, which means that we can find not as much food as before. Who knows when we'll fall and become food for the Graciliraptors.
Adder looked around. Stalagmite was in relatively good condition(ankylosaurs have a large amount of fat to live off of), but Lucious's face was basicaly shrinkwrapped, as were his legs. Cinder's body was almost like a bent stick, as she went for days without decent food. Even Adder was not in his best condition; the skin on his neck was beginning to peel, he lost a finger a few fights ago, and part of his tail was shaved off.
They continue to eat their way through the fallen Outlaws. The four(er...five) then store the carcasses in a very unreachable place.
No sooner do they finish putting away the food does Adder yell "AMARGASAURUS!"
The herd stomps back into the Watering Hole. With boundless strength and might, these five need to hide...
This time the stampede ends quickly and nobody is killed, thankfully.
The sun starts to set, and crickets start chirping. Rover starts a fire, and all five huddle around it, where they slowly eat the carcasses of the Outlaws(Stalagmite just ate more ferns). Almost everyone told each other jokes and laughed about their recent victory.
Adder doesn'y join in and slowly eats his food--very slowly. He didn't blink, he didn't laugh, he didn't look up.
"You look tense," Cinder says while eating a Hylaeosaurus stomach. "Relax and enjoy life like the rest of us!"
Adder shakes his head. "Never let you guard down. That's for your own benefit. Our world never stops the attack; it's only the very few of us against the very many of them. I don't want to stop and be foolish and naïve only to be killed a minute later..."
Night falls, and the five get some well-deserved rest. Stalagmite sleeps at the bottom of the tree, and the other four sleep on different branches.
At midnight, Lucious wakes up. He's hungry. He walks to the carcass pile and sees...
Appearance: Dull blue, with several gold rings and necklaces that he stole from the Rift’s inhabitants. He has a small collection of thin black feathers on his chin, forming a small “beard.”
Personality: Very intelligent and scheming, gladly stealing from all and having sympathy for none.
Likes: “All that glitters,” at least in his words.
Dislikes: “All that lives,” again in his words.
History: A renowned thief who is known for killing Lena. He was seduced by the prospect of joining the Outlaws and driving the Rift to extinction, and under the observation of the "Salty" he soared to being the fastest creature in the Rift, is exchange for durability. Like wyverns.
"Get outa here" Lucious stare down the ornithimimid, he walks over to the puddle and hops in, drags out a dead gallimimus and beguins to feast in front of his eyes, im not quite sure, but i think Lucious was purposly teasing by eating a muddy dead galli befor the theif, yet, keeping an eye on him...
"I don't have to if I don't want to," he calmly retorts back, and for once does not kick Lucious in the face.
He kicks literally everyone in the face. And don't be fooled by his skinny appearance; he has one hell of a kick.
The two stare at each other for some time. After a few seconds Adder and Rover jump down next to Lucious, ready to back him up. Lucious starts again. "You're the one who killed our friend Radnad, huh?"
"Yeah, I did. That blasted Corythosaurus didn't stand a chance against me...And I'm sure you three won't, either."
Lucious basiclly ignores whatever threats are being thrown and is tugging at the brown muddy flesh. Adder scoffs at the words of the ornithimimid, its funny after all when an ostrich threatens a croc, dilo and a giant snake.
Rover-"u ssso sssuree, I wouldnnt beee sssurprissed if the corythiosssaur was a lucky shot"
Bandit-"it was skill, I can reassure you of that, and if this is really going down, I might as well do some leg streaches first"
"I got it" intrups lucious. "Anyone wanna go with me" he is holding the with bone of the dead galli in his hands. Adder waves his hand a lottle in disaproval. Lucious offers it to rover, "ARE YOU SERIOUS? Not now"
So one still stand, lucious offers it to the bandit. For this, if helix says yes, I will actully flip a coin to get an answer. 50 50, lets test some luck
The Great Bandit smiles maniacally. He snatches the remains of the Einiosaurus carcass, devours a little bit, and starts to walk away.
Before he leaves, he gives a sinister grin to the Rebels. "Be happy I have not decided to capture, or worse, kill you. A real shame too...For your skulls would make a fine addition to General Bonesaw's collection."
And with that he runs into the night.
The three just stare at The Great Bandit. Finally Adder speaks.
"They've spotted us...They know where we live...This can't be happening...This can't be happening...This can't be happening..."
At least we can have peaceful disputes in the midst of violent events...
Age: Adult (20 velociraptor years, became adult at 16)
Personality: Grandson of Shadow, son of Resseona and a lucky bitten male, Wraak is raised well. The only thing passed down to him from his grandpa are the coloring of the feathers and that he easily gets angry and little too agressive.
Appearance: Blackish-gray feathers with bloody red on the arms and on the tail. Has a few scars on his face.
History: Hatched not too far from Ruined castle, along with two siblings - one sister and one brother. His brother died young, but his sister is alive. She is a combination of Shadow and her father - gray feathers with Shadow's bloody red markings. The only way you can guess she is daughter of Resseona is by looking at her from sertain angles, in which she has the specific brown color of her mother.
Resseona was a really good mother. She raised Wraak and Ela (Wraak's sister's) well. But at the age of 13, their pack got too close to Ruined Castle. The bats folowed them a kilometer or two in The Sandstone Seas, and killed half of the velociraptors. Between the killed were Resseona, Wraak's father, Telemolon and Colossal. Bolona was missing for a few years, and Rey was the only one from Shadow's childs to survive. He is currently living at the Y-Knot. From there on Wraak didn't behave as well as before and went with his siter to Rey's home to live a few years there.
"General Bonesaw. I saw the five Rebels. They would not give me any food. But I at least know of their existence. Tomorrow...We strike?" The Great Bandit meets his fellow high-ranking Outlaw and has a discussion.
"No, I feel that maybe we should wait for a little...Meeting. When we meet in person with them, we will capture them."
This is General Bonesaw; he needs no introduction(though I will introduce him later); a bounty hunter who keeps the skulls of his victims as trophies. Ironically, though, there is no military among the Outlaws, and so the title "General" is technically a nickname. He's not the leader of the Outlaws; he doesn't even lead a posse. The latter is justified in that he prefers to work alone to hunt Rebels.
The Great Bandit tells Bonesaw about the Rebels's names; he overheard their conversations.
"Captain Cardinal is dead, I saw the Dilophosaurus eating him...Should we replace him?"
"Absolutely. Fetch me Gloom, and I will brief her on her next mission. Those Rebels...I will have their skulls if it is the last thing I do!"
He glances over to his collection. Impaler the Triceratops, Radnad the Corythosaurus, Sledge the Shunosaurus...The skulls of Rebels lay side by side on a wooden pedestal.
Bonesaw laughs as he writes a new name into the pedestal: Adder the Dilophosaurus. He scratches an X on top of the name, and the two howl at the moon in joy of the massacres that will ensue tomorrow...
The tree line nearby feezed in movement as someone brushed past. Whats his name, Stalagmite gets defensive and charges at the attacker.
Lucious yells out that he stops immediately, and that he is making a mistake.
Stalagmite is obviously confused, whats so bad about fending off a mighty big Terror Bird.
The terror bird had a ugly complexion, hideous in appearence, he started forth, waddling right past cinder and toward the group. Then he spoke, "my word, is this really your choice of friends Lucious"
Lucious had a bit of humor in his voice "saddly yes, they are quite aggressive since we are part of the allies"
"And Rover, still slidin?"
"Asss much asss a sssnakee can sssliidee, old frieend"
Leaning over by lucious, he whispers "whos the dorky looking armordillo over there?"
"Aha, and the saurpelta?"
"Uh um, Stalagmite"
"Oh, Ohhh, two with the same name" Yes, he just called Cinder a dorky armordillo
Species: some terrorbird, kelenklen or something, idk, the big one.
Appearence: mostly dark grey. The front of his beak is scrunched and looks like it was squashed back partway down his face, making it partly wrinckly. He has a keritin defect that has him grow an extensive amount of keratin on his beak. He has stripes of yellow around his body, alittle like prehistoric park.
History: picked on for his appearence, he grow up with his little deformity in desturbence. He refuses to take sides, outlaw nor allie, he dosnt even like being called a neutral. Has a mean sence of humor and probably the sharpest beak on the island, because of his disease, he uses a sharp stone to sharpen his own beak, he feels no pain in his jaw.
"Not great," Adder grumbles. "The five of us--or maybe the six of us if Mr. Drift-Wood Whatever decides to come with us--we're running away. The Outlaws...They. Will. Kill us all if they find us here."
The six stand there in silence.
"okay, so we have nothing over the outlaws, and i mean nothing. they have everything we do and more, their numbers are much larger. unless we are a bunch of suicidal misfits, i say we run..."
"Indeed," Adder agrees. He doesn't like Drift, but he still accepts Drift as an aquaintance. Neither of them have any beef for each other.
"Here, have some food I spared you." Adder throws Drift some Hylaeosaurus meat.
Darn it, the joke was the wrong way round, ill fix it.
"Well, i'll follow to catch up with my old mates... and Adder. But i can hunt for myself thank you verry miouech" Pushing the leg back, like it was toxic, of cause, he was stirring Adder, looking for a reaction, most of the time, he got one.
"With that, the journey comenced, predators of all strengths, shape, form and weaponry, Stalagmite was there too. Nothing was cooler then a group of dangerous animals, and Stalagmite" Drift was comentating on the actual journey, picking on one of the animals whos name was Stalagmite, although Drift confused Lucious into calling Both Cinder and Stalagmite, Stalagmite Purposly.
Adder doesn't respond, mostly because he doesn't want any arguments between him and Drift.
"Mkay. I have one very tiny rule for you. You can make jokes about us, you can pull pranks on us(but please don't pull pranks on Stalagmite), you can do anything. But overall just respect us/don't hurt us, and we won't hurt you. How does that sound?"
Appearence: Gray with Shadow's bloody red on the wings and tail. If you look at her from certain angles she looks brown.
"Arghhh...Morning...I mean, night, sis" - said Wraak.
"Mor...Night" - Ela was very sleepy.
"Old habits, huh? Hehe, your mother, Telemolon and Shadow were always like that, when they started sleeping at the day!"
Wraak and Ela stared at Rey angrily. They didn't like being reminded of their mother.
"What is up with you two? If you can't handle some exercise, how then do you hunt?" - Rey was very strict.
"If you were running around in a forest, that you don't know anything about, chased by Dilos, for hours, only to run from Proceratosauruses through the Deserted plains you would be tired too! This is a challenge even for a lucky bitten!" - protested Wraak.
"You didn't say anything about a chase when you got here!"
"Yes, because we were tired and fell asleep at the cave's entrance!" - said Ela.
"No, you didn't! You started talking about running in circles and triangles or something in that matter, then you barfed all over the walls! I haven't slept that night, so i can clean it up!"
"Sorry, uncle. We probably didn't mean to. You can sleep and we will go for food." - said Wraak.
"OK, but be alert. I don't mess with the people outside of my cave if they aren't my prey, because there are some very nasty thing going on here. Be careful!'
Rey's cave is located at the eastern end of High Jungle
Wraak and Ela are out around the Watering hole when they notice what is happening between Midas and the Rebels, but they don't hear anything. They approach the Rebels.
"What is going on here? Do you need help?" - Wraak asks.
"No, we don't need help. What we do need, however, is for you two to get out of here now. If the Outlaws catch us, they'll not only kill the six of us, but you two as well. So unless you don't value your life, I recommend you run as far awa--"
Adder is cut off by snarling.
Six Proceratosaurus drop down from the trees, their teeth glowing silver in the moonlight. Their gray feathers and red eyes made them look like wolves, and they snarled and howled like dogs.
The six run in a circle around the group of eight, but suddely stop and make the circle larger. Two figures run into the formation, one being The Great Bandit, the other being a blue, larger, female Proceratosaurus.
Adder recognizes her.
"Oh, it's you."
While The Great Bandit and Lucious start arguing, Adder stares at the Proceratosaurus.
"We found you, huh? 'Cause good old Midas over here told me! Ahuhuhuhuh...AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Ha. Eheheh..."
"Look, I don't like you, and I'm sure you don't like me. But can you please let us live for now so that we can get the fuck out of here?" Adder pleads.
"Sorry. Bonesaw's orders. This time...We'll kill you off for real! I want to..." she stared directly into Adder's eyes "...analyze you! And take your skull...then maybe your life!"
God, she sounds like a psychopath. "Uh, no, you will not take anybody's life, and if you think about doing so, you'll get punched so hard you fly into Hell!"
"So, what, are you going to leave us alone?"
"Naw, that would be too boring!"
"You know this weirdo?" Cinder asks.
"What, none of you heard of Gloom?" Adder answers back. "My worst enemy, bane of my existance ever since she captured my father Kragok, feared nocturnal assassin?"
"Listen," Gloom says. "We don't want you, Adder. We want your friends! We'll tie them up to a tree, dump oil down their throats, and set their bodies on fire! And what do we do after that, Midas?"
The Great Bandit stops arguing with Lucious to answer the question. "We eat 'em!"
"Oh, great, now I have to deal with three gangs coming after us. Nice. We're moving out for sure," Adder grumbles. "Oi, Lucious, you get the Ostricho-Mime, and I'll get the psychopathic little girl, sound good? Everyone else, get the Proeratosaurus!"
"Outlaws?TF are these?" - asks Wraak - "Ela, go get Rey, I'm gonna help these guys!"
"I am NOT leaving you alone!" - answered Ela.
"I'm not alone, now go!"
As Wraak was saying that he jumped on one of the Proceratosaurus' back and started scratching and biting. He was thrown off and almost stomped. He started jumping around, it looked almost like he was dancing. He was scratching like crazy - the legs and abdomens of some Proceratosauruses were covered in blood. One time he was able to reach one the enemy's eye. Wraak stuck his long nail deep into the dino's eyeball. He heard a scream of pain. He was kicked and thrown out of the battlefield. His arm was fractured. Wraak got up and climbed the nearest tree so he can watch the battle and look out if more of them were coming.
"What do you Outlaws have against us, anyways? We don't do anything wrong, and in the words of my creator's History teacher, we don't do anything stupid. If anything, we prevent you Outlaws from doing anything stupid!"
Adder slaps Gloom in the face, who proceeds to slam Adder into the ground.
"Could use some help right now..." Adder looked around. Cinder, Stalagmite, Rover, Lucious, and Drift were doing a pretty good job of beating up the Proceratosaurus. Lucious stops attacking the Proceratosaurus and runs to Adder. Both of them start attacking Gloom and The Great Bandit as much as they can.
The tide suddenly turns, however, and Gloom grabs Adder. She dunks his head into the Watering Hole and holds him there as she hacks away at him. Adder is clearly dying over here, Lucious is getting kicked in the face repeatedly by The Great Bandit, the others are still fighting the six Proceratosaurus...
Drift was sort of standing in the middle of the action the whole time, considering he hasn’t picked a side, he was just enjoying the view. The scene was beautiful, Rover was immobilizing a protsaurus whatever while staligmite was slapping him hard across the face. Lucious was rodeoing on the back of a galli, amazing sight.
He walks over to a small bush next to a rock, squashes down the bush as a cushion and rested his back across the rock, he looked to is side, a small picnic basket sat next to him along with a radio. He pulled a serviette out and stuffed the corner down his his top under his neck. He started flicking through the radio stations and settled for an opera song that matched the action. The picnic basket has a small chicken and cheese sandwich, a bottle of wine and a wine glass. He lefts the sandwich close to his face and looks toward the view, taking a nice big bite of the juicy chicken. He places down the sandwich and takes the wine and rips out the cork. He sniffs the essence coming from the bottle and pours a glass, drinking it in favour of its flavour. He looks at the action, the allies [and the raptors] as getting their buts handed to them, quite literally, each being taken down and overpowered. Drift removes the serviette and starts walking off, then he stops, in a deep inner argument with his conscious.
All of the above is a joke, I’ll be doing a lot of that with Drift.
The bandit has Lucious on the ground, foot on his neck, Rover has one guy holding his head and the other holding his tail, everyone was down and being held still, they have lost this battle.
Then they see a large rock, a boulder, rolling their way, the distractions gives Adder an open window and he takes it, kicking someone in the bhind which leads a chain of escapes. Drift stands on the boulder running backwards to push it along, he was talking as he went. Opera music was still playin in the background, the boulder bumped up as he ran over his target, then again, the again. Then the music stopped, he looked around and the bandit was holding the cord to the radio. Drift was unpleased “You dare turn off my tunes” The bandit pulled a small ipod from his feathers “If we do this, we do it to some real music” Ipod shuffle and away we go. The bandit pressed a few buttons and then “Call me maybe came on?” The bandit was obviously embarrassed, trying to turn off the music “That’s not mine, I don’t know how that got there” Drift grew a dim smile “Sure sure, might music man, Hey Everyone, Our DJ Likes Girls Music”
Hahah, why is no one laughing?
“Ha, here we go, take a bite of this” the bandit snarled
Starts playin the meme song “Never gonna give you up”
GOOD LORD I WAS LAUGHING FOR FIVE MINUTES STRAIGHT
Adder finally recovers and does a flip out of the water, in the process kicking Gloom in the face. Gloom screeches and labds directly onto The Great Bandit. Lucious takes the advantage and pounces, leaving them both as fodder for Drift's ridiculously powerful beak.
He slashes The Great Bandit with his jaws. Rover slaps a Proceratosaurus in the face, and Stalagmite stomps on two at once. The kings have returned.
Adder then slams The Great Bandit into a rock, breaking an arm. Both he and Gloom get up and run.
"Grrgh...I can't keep up! I'll flee for now!" Gloom swears revvenge on Adder.
The Proceratosaurus gang runs, with the exception of one, who doesn't survive.
"Whew. THAT was the toughest fight I have ever gotten into," Adder declares. "Mkay. Tommorrow we have to move out. Goodnight. Get some rest, everyone, you all deserve it."
"Neither. Unless you want to be brutally maimed and left for dead as food for the Outlaws. I'm not doing this to make fun of you. I'm doing this for your safety.
"How about this: if you become a Rebel, great. But if you become an Outlaw, you may never see me, my friends, or your friends ever again...On the bright side, we won't attack you. So, I'll give you some time to think about it. Please have an answer by tomorrow? I'm sorry, I really don't want to fight you. Goodnight."
With that Adder jumps into the tree and falls asleep.
The Great Bandit, Gloom, and one of the Proceratosaurus returns to General Bonesaw's lair.
"General...We have failed in our mission. The Rebels were just too strong..." The Proceratosaurus starts talking.
Bonesaw cuts off the Proceratosaurus. He lunges forwards, slamming him into a rock. The unlucky victim screeches as Bonesaw slices away at his minion, punching him in the face, stomping on his legs, chomping on his arms.
"Shut you mouth; all I need from you is your cooperation so that I can eradicate you! You disgusting filth of a dinosaur on this disgusting filth of a planet!"
"One word and I'm going to make your life hell." Bonesaw bites the Proceratosaurus's neck, breaking some bones.
Bonesaw ties the Proceratosaurus to a stake. He then forcefully dumps oil down his throat, and throws a flame at him, exploding his stomach and organs.
"Sheezus christ, Bonesaw, at least give the poor fucker a chance at life!" Even The Great Bandit is horrified at Bonesaw's brutal killing(strike that...torturing/slow and painful death) methods.
"Only the Outlaws deserve to live on this planet. The Rebels, with their shrivelled and blackened hearts...They are all in agreement. To destroy us and our aims for a better world. Our views are the only correct ones, and when we unite, we will change the world not for worse but for good. Those who do not believe the same must be purged!"
"So, what are you gonna kill us?" The Great Bandit is trembling with fear.
"No, fool, I'm keeping you and Gloom alive. But just this once...Next time there will be no mercy."
"I have been nice today. Pray I do not send both of you directly to Old One Eye the next time you screw up."
Both of them scream internally. They just saw Bonesaw kill his own minion, one can only wonder how Ol' One Eye kills people...
"Tomorrow. Hunt the Rebels down wherever they are, and kill them. Do not have any sympathy for them. In this world...we either kill or be killed!"
"Your forefathers?Well, whatever, no problem. It's only what's right."
With that Adder falls asleep, and the others follow.
Naturally Cinder is the first one to wake up the next day.
"Woohoo! Ready for the big move today?" Cinder does a flip and lands on the ground.
Adder makes a half-assed attempt at a flip and falls on his face.
The others wake up and descend the tree like a normal animal would do.
"So, where are we moving now?" Cinder asks Lucious, Rover, and Adder.
"Hhhmmm...Wee ccoullddd mmoooovvveeee too thee Hiigh Jjuuunggle, bbuuttt thheerree aarree tonnss off Maassiakassaurusss, it iss nottt guaranteeed that wee willl bee sssafee theeree. Thhhheeee ooottthhherrr ooopppptttiiiioooonn iss ttthhhe Deesseerrtteed Ppllaainns..."
"We could always try the Sandstone Seas if we're really desperate, which we're not, or the Mountains of Nothingness, but good luck finding your way around up there," Adder adds(no pun intended).
"So that leaves the High Jungle and Deserted Plains, huh?"
Everyone stops and takes a vote. Adder does not take part in the vote, which means that there are five voters and not six.
Cinder and Stalagmite vote to stay in the Deserted Plains. Drift, Lucious, and Rover's votes depend on what Jaigantic wants.
Appearance: His skin is completely black, with a few red tints here and there, not from skin, but from blood. He has a skull-like face and black eyes with very tiny red pupils. The feathers on his neck are dark blue; they are very long and give off the impression of a cape.
Personality: He has no allegiance to politics and no mercy to Rebels, but no hatred to Outlaws. Bonesaw is well-known and feared for his sadistic torture of his victims, and his vast hoard of trophies. Everyone steers clear of him unless necessary, even the Outlaws, lest they suffer the same fate as the skulls in his lair...
Likes: Watching his victims die slowly and painfully.
Dislikes: The Rebels, his fellow Outlaws, his Proceratosaurus gang, and those that do not agree with his beliefs.
History: One night, a Shaochilong Rebel named Crowned Dragon invaded a small den. He tried to steal some food stored at the back of the den, but was effortlessly killed by none other than Bonesaw. Bonesaw shaved off Crowned Dragon’s skull and kept it as a trophy. Since then he became a high-ranking “commander” of the Outlaws, hunting down the opposition with occasional help from his gang of six Proceratosaurus, though he prefers to kill Rebels alone.
Territory: Mount Kratakota
General Bonesaw’s collection, in chronological order(all of these are Rebels except for Red Baron, Nightshade, King Brock, the Bounty Hunter, the Predator, and the Shadow Lord):
Crowned Dragon the Shaochilong(killed in the time between the first and second year)

Radnad the Corythosaurus(killed a day before the night the new RP started)
Nightshade the Tyrannosaurus rex(killed the same night the new RP started)
Wraak didn't notice when he fell asleep. When he woke up, he felt pain in his fractured arm, but ignored it. He noticed that the Rebels are arguing, he jumped off the tree and got closer to them.
"Morning! Sorry if I interupt your discussion, but I have some serious questions. Firstly, I would like to know who these guys from the night are. Secondly, if you don't mind I would ask why were they fighting and for what." - said Wraak. - "And I won't accept the "They are the Outlaws, get out of here" answer!"
Oh, wow, that's nice, I try to edit a post that I published on a computer and edit it on a phone and now the whole thing got butchered.
"I'll tell you what's going on. The Outlaws are a group of corrupt animals. They seek only to destroy us all so that they can own the Rift all for themselves!" Adder speaks to Wraak.
"That's why us Rebels exist. We try to stop the Outlaws from tearing apart the Rift...They seek Rebels and massacre us, and they seem to target us in particular...Mostly because of what our fathers have done to their numbers..."
"Who?" Wraak asks.
"Our fathers...You do not know them? Ancile...Charizard...Paragon...Kragok...They have done justice to the Outlaws...Kaiser...Extinction...
"Do you see why the Outlaws attack us? It is because they wish to take this world for themselves, leaving none of it for others!"
Wraak still doesn't get it.
"The gang from the night...That is only a fraction of their population. I feel that they would probably sic the entire population on us...They kill anyone affilated with the Rebels. So I recommend you leave for your safety. And your arm is broken...You're in no condition to fight off posse after posse like we have to."
"OK, got it. I actually have heard of Ancile. My grandpa, Shadow, have known him. They weren't friends, but weren't rivals also. I haven't heard the others. You may ask if have lived under a rock my hole life, and I'll say I lived under a corral." - said Wraak - "And also, Shadow has fought someone called Grim, who wanted to take over the Watering hole. He is an Outlaw, right?"
"Wow, I am very stupid." - said Wraak after a moment - "I demand for things, when I haven't even said my name yet. I am Wraak, brother of Ela, our father is Greon, our mother is Resseona, daughter of Shadow and Nelenia, sister of Telemolon, Colossal, Bolona and Rey."
Then he finally realises that he is talking way too much and stops for a moment.
Lucious and Rover dont even vote, they dont need to, neither can survive in the desert, so that leaves little choice. High Jungle it is. Drift was still half asleep, his alarm went off, beep beep beep beep beep *SMASH* "why on earth do i have an alam clock"
Lucious looked over to Drift "You gonna vote on where we go?"
With his claws in his eyes, rubbing away, he responds "I don't need to, you guys are comming with me to the crumble of the Lucky mountain"
Everyone was somewhat surprized, one does not simply venture cloes to the remains of that mountain, the bats are not a friendly as they use to be, and the giant Onycs tend to venture in and around the remains, and they are very aggressive, as useral. "We can't go there, they would kill us before the outlaws do"
"Tch...Fine. We're going to the Ruined Castle. Be on your guard," Adder finally decides.
Our heroes(Drift=Anti-hero?) begin to make a long and arduous trek to the former Mount Luckyone...
Gloom and The Great Bandit march east with their posse. Behind them are a Stegosaurus, ten Bambiraptors, two Tenontosaurus, three Deinonychus, a Troodon, three Pachycephalosaurus, an Austroraptor, and two Megalosaurus. The great posse massacres anybody they see; should one dare to walk in their path, the posse brutally mutilates them without ceasing their advance. Anyone who dares dance with these devils will meet a devilish demise...
A passerby sees the posse and runs as far away as possible. Once the Rebels settle down next to the Ruined Castle, the passerby walks up to Adder...
...and says, "Glory, Adder, long time no see!"
Adder looks up at the voice.
Age: 20 Iguanodon years(20 human years)
Appearance: A tan Iguanodon with blue and green stripes.
Personality: A very smart individual, he always calculates his opponents and looks for their weak points. Due to being raised by actual parents, he learned a number of skills(he even speaks some French!). He also has a strange obsession for whacking things with his head.
Likes: Warfare(but only for a cause), whacking things with his head, and food.
Dislikes: Pointless fighting and the Outlaws.
History: The oldest of our main characters, Randall is often known as the wisest in the group. This probably owes to the fact that he actually had a father to raise him. He taught Randall a number of efficient techniques, both in and out of battle. When Randall was 10 years old his parents were captured by Gloom and were executed at Mount Kratakota. Since then Randall lived with the Rebels.
Territory: Deserted Plains
"Hey, Randall! How have you been?"
"I'm doing fine, I just escaped prison," Randall says, looking off to the side. He had a Yorkshire accent. "A year ago they captured Radnad and me. We got thrown into prison, and Radnad was executed three days ago. I managed to escape, and I spent a few days looking for you."
Drift and Rover slither up to Randall, hissing and hooting angrily. They seem ready to kill Randall, mistakening him for an Outlaw, but Randall punches them aside. "Man, all these years I've spent in prison and this is what I come back to?"
Adder and Cinder shrug. "Yeah, I guess," Adder mumbles.
"i am very sorry for all of this, our friend lucious decided to bring his friends on this trip..."
"I don't know why they decided to come with us, given that Mr. Drift over here decided to kill us! But whatever, they're also Rebels," Cinder tells Randall.
"Oh, that's good. So who's the chunk of wood over there?"
"Um, that's Drift."
"And the Kelenken?"
"Hm, they have the same na--Wait a minute..."
"SHIT ACTUALLY THE KELENKEN IS NAMED DRIFT AND THE CHUNK OF WOOD ROVER HOW COULD I MESS THAT UP! Oh, and the Velociraptor's name is Wraak."
"It's fine..." Randall comforts Cinder. "Anyways, I came here to tell you...THE OUTLAWS ARE COMING! You can't stay here; they'll spill your guts and leave you as food for the Proceratosaurus! I saw Radnad get executed that way! And why are you staying at the Ruined Castle, anyways?"
"Well, I might as well come with you. The Proceratosauruses saw me fight, and I have an unusual coloring for a velociraptor and they'll remember me. I'll tell my uncle and sisiter and I'll catch up with you" - said Wraak, and did it. Short story short.
Scraping your own mouth with a rock...That's gotta hurt.
"Well, at least the eight of us are situated here...Here's hoping the bats don't kill us..."
"Whadya mean, Adder, the bats won't kill us!" Cinder yelled this happily like everything that came out of her mouth. "We can always do well in this world if we--"
The eight stop and look at the source of the sound.
Gloom and The Great Bandit charge out of the bushes with their posse running behind them. It's eight on twenty-five.
"We've got you cornered now...Ahuhuhuhuh..."
"Gloom, you know something?" Adder asks the Proceratosaurus. "With your obnoxious attitude and creepy laugh, it's a wonder how General Bonesaw hasn't killed you so that this world can be ridded of your presence."
"And it's a wonder how you're not dead yet!"
"Perhaps it's because we're actually competent at what we do? I can't think of any person that could waste their entire life trying to kill one person and not succeed. And how did you even know we were moving here, anyways?"
"We stalked you through the Plains!"
"Of all the things you could be doing with your life you decided to stalk us to death. When this is done, let's see who will face death next."
"Enough whining!" The Great Bandit splits up the two. He then walks back into formation with his three Deinonychus. Adder could tell that from the way the Deinonychus were reeling and staggering they may have eaten too much fermented fruit and become drunk. The only thing worse that fighting three dromaeosaurids is fighting three drunk dromaeosaurids.
Randall stared one of the Megalosaurus down. The Megalosaurus had red skin with white stripes and black eyes, like a cardinal. "It's The Betrayer...The one who captured and killed Radnad...I won't ever forgive you!"
"Well, enough of revenge!" Lucious tells Randall. "We have to fight off this posse now!"
How would the iguanadon compare him to wood when he dosnt know his name?
Rover litrally looks like wood.
Drfit has no nerves in his beak, as i stated earlyer, he has a keratin growth disorder, he has such a powerful bite because he sharpens his beak.
Drift is looking for an easy way out, he spots one, the three deinonychus and the austroraptor seem like an easy target, break open the formation and jump over the revean, SOME of the others can follow, not everyone can jump a ravean. There is a unstable stone bridge they can cross, but for now, we need to deal with the following evil doers.
As they are cornered, you can here the posse mummble to themselves indervidully. Drift remains still, in formation, yet still scraping keratin from his beak with his left foot. The austroraptors mummbles something in the distance "The bird is mine"
Drift instantly retaliates "Bite Me Bucko" he is trying to push the austros buttons, maybe he can get one so eager to kill that the formation breaks. The expression the austros face was pretty convincing that Drift was going to have an easy target to fight. Then, a great face off "Kill them" the brutal forces collide.
The austro launches at Drift "Time to PAY" Drift makes a quick reaction and lifts his foot up, his legs enough to block the austro off so he cant reach, the austro thrusts his head and claws around, trying to pry the foot out the way. Drift moves his head back in disgust "Time for a mint" Offending the austro greatly. "Ok, NOW YOUR REALLY IRRITATING ME" Drift is highly enjoying himself. "Stop yelling, your blowing more of your fishy breath at me, get back" as he says get back, he jumps and with both legs fly kicks the austro back, knocking him out.
"Okay, I get the one on the left and you get the one on the right," Randall tells Adder. The third Deinonychus is being beaten up by Rover.
"No, I get the one on the right and you get the one on the left," Adder argues back, not realizing what he just said was completely redundant.
"That was LITERALLY what I said."
"Whatever! I get the one on the left, you get the one on the right!"
"Cela me semble bien!"(Sounds good to me!)
Both of them whack heads and charge at the drunk carnivores. Adder sidesteps the dromaeosaurid and attempts to slash, but his target jumps out of the way and runs in a circle, screaming his head off for no reason. Eventually he trips and belly flops on Adder.
Adder rolls on his back and kicks the Deinonychus in the face. It flies backward, and Adder bites down onto its neck for good measure. The Deinonychus roars at the Dilophosaurus and makes a run for it in the form of an extremely retarded fast-paced waddle.
The second Deinonychus jumps over Randall in an attempt to confuse him. But nothing confuses Randall; he calculates the Deinonychus's position and lands a perfectly-timed tail slap to the face without even looking. The Deinonychus gets right back up for more and jumps on Randall's face. He roars and slams directly into Wraak, who pounces on the Deinonychus. The Deinonychus dislodges itself from Randall's face, and the Iguanodon headbutts the Deinonychus into a tree.
Adder and Randall do a fistpump and run towards the Stegosaurus with Lucious.
Wraak takes the left flang, attacking the Tenontosaurus and a Megalosaurus. He fakes a jump and goes under the Tenontosaurus' belly, while the bambiraptors are still on top. He made long, deep scratches. Blood was all over him. Wraak deepens the scratches. The Tenontosaurus screams and falls on one side, breathing heavily. Wraak jumps into him and feels great pain. He forgot about his broken arm. He almost fainted. The bambiraptors are coming towards him. Wraak was able to break one's skull with his claws, a kick was able to puncture the second attacker's lungs. The third bambiraptors got close to him and, seeing Wraak's broken arm, attacked it. Wraak fall of the Tenontosaurus' corpse (he died from blood loss), which saved him from being eaten by the Megalosaurus. The headless bambiraptor fell close to him. The Megalosaurus looked around and spotted Wraak. He got up and dodged the bite, jumped and climbed on his head. The next moment the Megalosaurus screamed in pain and started blindly running around. Wraak hold on to his life and stayed on top. The Megalosaurus tripped on the Tenontosaurus' carcass, slamming his head on the ground and breaking his neck. Wraak fell off and broke the same arm, he broke before on another place. He cut open the Tenontosaurus and fell unconscious in it's inners. This was his first major fight along with the Rebels and he was half dead. This time luck was on his side, he knows that and promises himself that he will train more if he wants to fight better.
"Well, I have been fighting along them two times now" - said Wraak's consciousness, when he regained it, reffering to the Rebels - "The Outlaw's leader, or the leader of that group of Outlaws should have seen me by now. Well, I have no choice I guess. I hope they woun't find Ela or Rey."
Drift was fighting off the Troodon when he suddenly is jerked backwards. Randall turn around and sees Drift. "Oh, glory!" Randall yells in fright. The Outlaws caught Drift!
The Betrayer had grabbed Drift by the neck and was hauling him into the undergrowth. Adder and Lucious run to help Drift as Randall fights the Stegosaurus.
Adder tries to attack The Betrayer from behind, but is thrown onto the ground. He then swings his face into Lucious, throwing him against a rock. The Betrayer punches Adder in the face repeatedly while Drift begins to bleed severely...
Wraak wakes up. He hears screams outside and slowly and painfully get out of the Tenontosaurus' inners. He sees a Megalosurus beating up Drift, while Adder and Lucious try to help him. Before he can go closer the Megalosurus starts attacking Lucious and then Adder. He makes a run for it.
"Hey, you, the Megalosurus! Bet you won't believe I just killed your friend! Come on, look!" - said Wraak, trying to get The Betrayer's attention off of the others.
Drift, sharpended his beak for a reason, it would be a shame if he only kicked people. Drift blood spills over the ground, but lets not give in now, he turns his head and full on slices the arm off his attacker.
The Betrayer swung his head at Drift, only to get it cleaved off by none other than Adder.
Suddenly screaming and howling filled the area. Lucious and Adder ran out of the undergrowth, both of them hauling Drift. "You...you bothered to save me?" Drift is surprised by this act of kindness.
"Yeah, I'm really sorry about that. I know you probably didn't want my help..." Adder looks away.
All three look at the warzone. Everyone freezes as a figure rides out of the dust.
It is none other than General Bonesaw, leading a giant Lambeosaurus with blue-green skin and a massive head crest.
"LIGHT 'EM UP, TOMAHAWK!" The Lambeosaurus, named Tomahawk, charged forward with its head down, crushing skulls and ribs as it ran. It turned around and slammed its head into Rover, flinging the snake ten feet into the air.
(NOTE: Please do not kill Tomahawk.)
A gang of four Proceratosaurus followed behind Boensaw; if they aren't hunting in a group of six they're hunting in a group of four. Behind them are a Staurikosaurus, an Allosaurus, and two Dromaeosaurus. It is clear thay the Rebels definitely cannot win this fight; it's six against a vast army deadset on killing them. Do not even attempt to resist, for they are out for blood...
Age: Adult (50 triceratops years, became an adult at 23)
Territory: Xavi River
Appearance: He has brownish-green skin, with big scars on his back. On his left side the letters T, G and B are carved out in his flesh in that order. His right horn is split in two, as his name suggests.
Personality: Isn't easily angered, calm most of time, which makes him a silent murderer and, in rare occasions, a mute killing machine. But that is only when he is further from home than he wants to be. When he gets home he is caring, loving, etc.
History: Born near Xavi River, he is very fast for a triceratops. He mated when he was 24 years old, which is really young for the triceratops near Xavi River. He has 3 babies, now near adults. When he was on vacation around the Watering hole, the Outlaws killed his mate. Thats why he joined the Rebels. After that his life was harder than ever. He didn't want to abandon his kids, but he wanted revenge. He left them for 2-3 months, while he fought the Outlaws. When he returned, he saw his whole herd killed, their bodies still fresh. The only survivor told him, that a female Velociraptor from the outlaws attacked them along with a pack of Deinos and Proceratosuruses. Before he passed, he told him that the Velciraptor's name was Bolona. After that Exedra is searching for Bolona, so he could kill her.
The letters on Exedra's side are The Great Bandit's initials, from when he captured and tortured him, so he would tell the place, where the Rebels where hiding. He was able to escape, but the letters and his split horn are easy to recognize.
"What is going on here? Lucious? Cinder? Adder?" - said Exedra. He didn't expect to find them here. He looked at the two armies and noded. - "You can't stay out of trouble, huh? I guess this is... GENERAL BONESAW!"
I dont see us winning this directly, drift thought in his mind. "Well, it was great meeting you all, but ahhh. Oh, would you look at the time, I got to flee" he turned tail and bolted toward the ravean. And with legs like a machine, he lept right over. He skidded across the ground on the other side, holding his wings out for balance. He turned to the armys on the other side and walk toward the stone boulder bridge. I know what many of your characters are thinking, coward. But you couldnt be more wrong. He lifted his leg and placed it on a pol log placed like a lever on the side of the bridge. All he has to do is push it down.
Get over, I doubt most the outlaws could jump that, our allies can cross, any outlaw that comes over the bridge while our allies are still on the other side, he will duel them off.
I was going to make Exedra female, but I always imagined a male something with that name.
"We finally meet, General Bonesaw" - said Exedra with digust - "Your subordinate have done many things to me and my family. Now I'll have my revenge! I'll carve out my initials on your body, I'll kill your family! And not only yours, Bolona's and The Bandit's too."
"That ain't gonna happen, Trike!" - answered the General.
Without saying a word, Exedra charged at General Bonesaw. He almost dodged the attack, but Exedra's left horn left a big scratch on his tail. Exedra turned and knocked Tomahawk off his feet. Then he felt pain in his collar - Genral Bonasaw bit off a huge piece of it and kicked him in the stomach. Exedra was enraged. He stomped, jumped(almost), kicked, swing his tail and bit all over.
Unless they used one of those cow brand things, I don't see why/how anybody would carve their own initials into their victims. You might as well paint a bullseye on their flank and throw darts while you're at it.
The two factions brawl, but suddenly in the midst of the fighting Lucious is knocked into the ravine. Adder jumps in after him and they both fall through the infinite abyss, the walls glowing with a million holographic copies of animals at once...
When Lucious and Adder wake up at the bottom of the ravine, they see that there is a massive cave system. Both of them shake off the dust and search the tunnels for a way out...
Drifts pan didnt exacly work, considering that half the Posse can jump, even if its a large jump, and very large jump. Time to work. Some random guy charges, and falls, bleeding and down. Someone else charges, and he lifts his foot claw in a stop motion, "Just a sec, i need to this first" The charger is oviously confused but stops nonethe less. And with that, Drift begins sharpening his beek, again, the protowhatever cringes at the sight of it, but then relising the disadvantage a sharper beak would have on him, he charges anyway. Drift throws the stone, head shot, 10 points, then opens his mouth and snapps shut on the animal, thats a kill, 20 points.
Kicks some guy, 5 points, escapes a dead grip, 7 points, fly kicks, 8 points, pushes someone down the revean, 15 points.
Lucious looks around, he is sore after the massive fall, he looks up, the sun barly glaring down at him, then a shadow passes over, he freaks out and jumps out the way as a protosaurus falls and splats right where he laid.
"Th...They threw me in...and you jumped after me..." Lucious tells Adder about the situation.
The cave flickers and a Bambiraptor falls in.
Immediately after a horde of a dozen Stegoceras arrives in the caves. The caves belong to the Stegoceras, they dominate this system. They know the tunnels by heart and are well-adapted to searching for plants and mushrooms in their dark habitat...
"Give me a hand here," Adder looks at Lucious. Adder knows that he can't take a hit from these beasts to save a life, and he knew that Lucious's thick hide could shield him a little.
The two knock heads and charge. Adder jumps to the side, unintentionally smashing a Stegoceras's head. Adder gained 40 EXP. He then jumps on another Stegoceras's face, rips it off, bounces into another one's head, knocks it into yet another, throws another at a rock, it is impaled on the spot. Four dead in one move, 160 EXP, hooray, you unintentionally killed four at the same time, Adder grew to Level 2, well done.
He kicks one in the face, slams another's face into the dirt, literally kicked another's ass, broke yet another's neck, 10 EXP, 30 EXP, 1 EXP, 40 EXP, 50 EXP, Adder grew to Level 3, he ate a young Stegoceras whole, 20 EXP.
"They're running--they're running, look!"
The Stegoceras jumped off the walls and bellowed and grunted and shrieked like Tusken Raiders. They retreated into the darkness. Twelve lowly Stegoceras outlaws are no match for two young but skilled carnivorous Rebels.
Now for the bigger problem; getting out of the ravine.
Bonesaw kicks Exedra into Wraak. He then runs away, back to Mount Kratakota. Tomahawk, Gloom, and The Great Bandit follow, leaving the posse behind.
Two hours later, Bonesaw stood glaring down at Tomahawk, who was kneeling before him.
"I...I MUST HAVE THEIR SOULS! I MUST SLICE THEIR THROATS, DEVOUR THEM ALIVE, MAKE THEM SUFFER! EVEN THEN, MY RAGE WILL NOT BE QUELLED! I--" He dropped to the ground, screaming violently.
Bonesaw chuckled. "You have done well, my pet."
He turned around and slammed the iron gate, essentially locking up a sentinent being and keeping him as a pet.
And he does this on a regular basis.
He walks down the corridor, inspecting his pets. An Apatosaurus, a Gorgosaurus, a Gastonia, and a Dryosaurus. All treated in an inhumane manner, locked up and starved. All being used as pack animals, as slaves.
He eventually reaches a door. He opens it and enters the room.
Oh, boy! It's an execution!
There is Gloom, standing in a corner, smiling and drinking Edmontosaurus blood(her favorite drink). There is The Great Bandit, talking as fast as he could, attempting to flirt with Gloom and failing--horribly. There is Drip, a Gorgosaurus with a black hood and red eyes. There is a bunch of elites partying like there's no tomorrow, because for the four captured Rebels in the center of the room, there is no tomorrow.
From left to right there is a young Paralititan, a Styracosaurus, a Pteranodon, and a Eustreptospondylus. Bonesaw runs to the captured Rebels and yells, "LET THE TRIAL AND EXECUTION BEGIN!"
The Styracosaurus is first. He is held on trial for the death of a young Austroraptor. He cannot defend himself, and the "jury" is heavily biased. Everybody unanimously votes to kill the Styracosaurus; one by one they pile on him and rip his skin, muscles, and organs.
Next is the Paralititan. One by one the Proceratosauruses jump on his face. They drench their claws in oil and slash away, ripping him apart. The Paralititan goes mad from the pain, and starts yelling, "I GOT YOU! I GOT YOU!" Eventually Gloom walkes forward and tosses a flame, burning the sauropod alive. His head falls off and burns to a skull, and his body slumps to the ground in a bloody heap as the head keeps yelling, "I GOT YOU!"
The Pteranodon is hung from the ceiling, where three Allosaurus throw darts made of tyrannosaur teeth at his heart.
Finally, Drip sharpens his teeth on a slab of obsidian. He marches forward and snaps the Eustreptospondylus's limbs and neck into unnatural angles, before his heart is ripped, bloodied, and exploded.
The executions conclude, and everyone marches back into their barracks to rest.
Gloom and The Great Bandit sleep in a tree. "Man, those four Rebels definitely got what they desrved, right, Midas?" Gloom looks up at The Great Bandit and smiles.
He says nothing. He looks up at the stars, horrified. He cannot join the Rebels, but he has no allegiance for the Outlaws. He only became an Outlaw...Because he killed Lena in self-defense...Then Bonesaw discovered him and he was forcefully drafted...And yet the Rebels despise him with a burning passion...But he eventually decides what to do tomorrow.
Exedra almost stepped on Wraak. The Velociraptor quickly jumped out of the way. He looked at the bleeding Triceratops.
"Hey, your legs don't hurt, right? OK, could you bring me to the battlefield, so I can pierse some eyeballs?"
As he was saying that he jumped on Exedra's neck and they charged at the enemy. Wraak jumped on one of the Allosauruses, struggling to keep himself standing as he piersed one of his eyes. He was thrown off and bitten on the leg by a Proceratosurus, who's skull he punctured with his strong claws, stronger that any other claws of a Velociraptor, because of that he was lucky bitten. He was losing blood, but managed to, once again, jump on Exedra for safety, while he finished the one eyed Allosaurus. Wraak fell unconcious for a minute or two, then woke up. Exedra was screaming as two Staurikosauruses cut his belly. He didin't have the strength to move. The next time he woke Exedra was piersing a Proceratosuruses skull and stomping a Staurikosuruses carcass.
Appearance: Dark brownish-grey with red eyes.
Size: Fully sized adult Velociraptor.
Personality: Calm and patient.
She joined the Oulaws for unknown reason to anyone who knows her before she joined (for now).
Bolona was standing at the shore with all her followers behind: Lorion the Styracosurus, Etara the Proceratosaurus, He [He] the Protoceratops, Moloc the Brontosaurus, Lata and Tiri the Gallimimuses and Pebble the Oviraptor, General Bonesaw's sergeant. They where around where the number 14 is on the map. They have stopped for the night and for food. Pebble found some turtle eggs and now the three carnivores where eating.
"What's the plan for tommorow, Bolona?"- asked Etara.
"We have killed the three Machiroceratopses we had to, our first need is to bring the skulls back to Mount Kratakota. Maybe after that we will be promoted and will be free to search for Rebels ourself. But tommorow is tommorow. We need sleep, the battle was long and some of us have taken quite the scars" - she said looking at He, who's tail was half missing and at Lorion, who lost some collar spikes.
"Promotions! I love these!" - said Pebble - "Do you think I am going to be promoted to a General? As you know, no one of ours has taken the Sandstone Seas!"
"If they are going to make anyone General of Sandstone Seas, it's going to be a Velociraptor" - answered Bolona. - "And, to my knowledge, I am the only Velociraptor serving the Outlaws. But even if you are promoted, you should change your name to something more fierse then Pebble. Imagine you just attack a group of Rebels and someone says "Oh, it's General Pebble again!""
"Hm... I guess you are right" - answered Pebble with a cold tone after everyone stopped laughing.
After that Bolona, Pebble and Etara climbed on top of Moloc and fell asleep.
Finally, I'm not the only person playing villain...
But man, that's a lot of minor characters running around in one group...
"Go. Attack the Sandstone Seas and the High Jungle. Our rations are starving...We need more food. Steal as much meat as you can. Do not come back until you do."
Gloom and The Great Bandit nod silently. The former is a psychopathic little girl; a girl more machine than man, the latter is a thief who only serves under Bonesaw because he literally has no other choice...
Both of them turn around and walk away. As they do, Bonesaw inspects his troops. He turned away from Proceratosauruses for the most part and began to use Ceratosauruses. They sound like hyenas, constantly laughing as they bare their teeth and howl at the moon. With their inhuman sounds, they don't seem like dinosaurs so much as mindless beasts with only one function programmed into their brains: kill.
Bonesaw yells over the laughter. "EVERYBODY! LISTEN UP. I KNOW THAT ALL OF YOU ARE STARVING. AND IN THIS NEXT MISSION, SOME OF YOU...no, MOST OF YOU...WON'T MAKE IT BACK. BUT STICK WITH ME...OUR LEADERS...AND YOU'LL NEVER GO HUNGRY AGAIN!"
A small "villiage" is situated at the center of the Sandstone Seas. Half of the Ceratosaurus attack the High Jungle, the other half, Gloom, and The Great Bandit attack the villiage.
Gloom sends everybody after the inhabitants. "Go. Gather as much meat as you can find!"
Then she leaps at a Brachylophosaurus, slicing open its throat. "You know, why even be limited to only gathering what we need, Midas, when we can eat all of it! But naw, I don't want this one, it's got a skinny ass..."
Next she kills an Einiosaurus. "That one has no thighs..."
And then a Velociraptor. "Now that one has a stupid look on his face..."
And then a Thylacleo. "Aw, this one was expecting a child! I shouldn't have killed her..."
Nevertheless she eats all of them.
The Great Bandit looks to the side. "Eat everything, if you get exiled by Bonesaw for your greed and gluttony I won't defend you..."
Gloom doesn't listen per the norm. She locks onto a young Apatosaurus. "But holy shit, am I hungry!"
She then begins to dig into the carcass, and gets back to the mission of collecting meat. "An old brick laying in the sun all day...Scaring everyone else from a potential meal...I don't give a shit, I'll eat this raw...We don't need a FUCKING salad either!"
The Great Bandit rolls his eyes, and when nobody is looking, he walks away, to the Ruined Castle...
"Adder, Lucious! Come on, where are you?" - Exedra joined the searching along with Wraak on his back.
"Hey, Trikey, go to the ravine, I want to check something" - said Wraak.
"My name is Exedra Splithorn" - answered Exedra and started walking - "From what I heard the others call you your name is Wraak, right?"
"Yeah" - Wraak was looking in the ravine, but couldn't see anything. - "I don't see them."
Then Exedra noticed that Wraak's arm was very bad condition. It had stopped bleeding, but was clearly broken it two places.
"Umm...your arm is broken... a few times."
"Huh? Oh that. It is, but I'll ask someone to fix it in position later"
The two started searching again, away from the ravine.
Bolona woke up. She was used to sleeping at night, like her entire family. It was early morning. Pebble wasn't on Moloc's back and Etara was snoring. She slided off of the giant creature and found Pebble eating a massive Triceratops egg. When she got closer Pebble pointed at a nest, filled with confuci eggs and continued eating. After their quick breakfast they woke everyone up. Etara was able to catch small things like compsognathuses on the way and all the others in the group where herbivores or omnivores and also coukld eat on the way. By the time they got to the river that is passing throught High Jungle (why don't we call it Leave River?) it was noon. They stopped to drink and in the late afternoon of the day General Bonesaw, Gloom and The Great Bandit led the meat collecting invasion in the High Jungle and The Sandstone Seas, they got to Mount Kratakota (I keep saying Karakota) to find it empty.
"Well, that's strange..." - Bolona was confused.
"Hmm...Yeah. It is." - Pebble was too.
"Well, I think we should not bother our tired heads now." - said Etara.
"Yeah, lets go to sleep"
Everyone was tired and they slept to the next day's morning to find...[ to be continued ]
"Oh well, looks like we might have to try something else," Adder grumbles.
First he starts screaming for help. "HEEEELLLLPPPP! I'M DYING OVER HERE! A KAPROSUCHUS IS KILLING ME RIGHT NOW(even though he really isn't)! I'M A TEENAGE DILOPHOSAURUS AND I HAVE DEPRESSION! HEEEEELLLLLPPPPP!"
(I'm trying to show that Adder has more personality than being depressed.)
Lucious rolls his eyes.
"Okay, Plan B!"
"What's Plan B?"
"I have no idea..." Adder looks up at the sky, then crumbles to the ground in a defeated pose. Now it's Lucious's turn to think.
"What do you need?"
Two Sinraptors with iron tails and electric crystal horns block the cave that Bolona's followers were sleeping in front of.
"We would like to see..."
"Come with us. What brings you here? You know he is much less forgiving than the likes of Bonesaw or Mandible."
"We would like a promotion," Pebble tells the guard.
The guards say nothing. They know how he will respond...
After what seems like ages, the group finally reaches the end of the massive tunnel blasted into the top of Mount Kratakota. The person they want to meet makes his way out of the shadows.
A very old man is he, with parts of his tail and some toes missing. He walked with a shuffling gait, and he has no eye, but the guards know that should you anger him, he would see you as fast as he would kill you. And despite his old appearance, he lords over Bonesaw, and thus all of the Outlaws.
This is Old One Eye.
"Yeessss?" Old One Eye is a very old and wise adventurer that served in the Great War and in a seperate division of the Grandfather's army.
"We would like a promotion!" Pebble asks Old One Eye.
He stares at them. "No."
Everyone stares at him angrily.
Old One Eye turns around and slaps the wall behind him. It caves in, revealing the mural behind him.
To the left was a Lambeosaurus and a Gorgosaurus. In the center there was a Proceratosaurus, a Velociraptor, a Lythronax, a Tenontosaurus, an Austroraptor, and an Albertosaurus. To the right there was an Apatosaurus and a Struthiomimus. On the very top was some...shadowy thing...Chains and blood splatter was drawn behind the shadow.
"Do you see this? I ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH LEADERS. AND WHY SHOULD I PROMOTE MORE IF THEY ARE JUST GOING TO DIE?"
He looks at Pebble sadly.
"I never really cared for you. Or you(He). Not even you, Bolona. I don't care for ANY OF YOU. I DO NOT CARE FOR THE LEADERS! I ONLY CARE FOR THE DAY THEY SUCCEED AND WE GIVE THIS MISERABLE ROCK THE FUTURE IT DESERVES!"
"The Future. The sun will never shine...the wind will never blow...plants will never bloom...We will keep killing each other until one stands."
He stomped the ground and slashed the walls, leaving huge streaks.
"AND THAT ONE WILL BE ME! YOU WILL NOT BE ANOTHER LEADER IN MY FLOCK, AND IF YOU DO, YOU AND ALL OF YOU WILL BE EXILED FROM THIS RIFT; BE A PACK OF LOWLY WOLVES, SCAVENGING ON THE KILLS OF OTHERS! And if I see you again, all eight of you will die."
"We apologize, Master." - said Bolona. - "I am sorry for this fool. He is obsessed with leading a bigger group. Please, excuse him."
"We would like to ask if you have any orders for us, Master" - continued Bolona after a two-second pause.
"Leave, fools! I am not giving you orders! If you want something to do, ask the General" - Old One Eye angrily looked at them, which was enough for them to turn around and fastly walk out of the cave system.
"Good work! Really good work, Pebble! If you weren't under Bonesaw's protection I would've cut your throat and throw your guts in the ocean! Because of wining for promotion, now we can't show our faces to The Leader without being killed afterwards!" - Bolona was very pissed off.
"Hey, you wanted promotion too!" - protested Pebble.
"Yes, but I wanted it from The General, not from Old One Eye! You know he doesn't give promotions that easily, but you asked the guards to promote us! Not you, us, which pissed him off even more! Now, listen to me. We will find The General and give him the skulls. He will give me orders and you are staying with him! Am I understand?"
"You won't talk to me like that!" - Pebble was angry.
"I will! The General told you that, unless I do something stupid, which I didn't, you did it, YOU ARE UNDER MY COMMAND!"
They were going to argue for a while, before Lorion told them to shut up and come with them to find a place to sleep for the night.
The Great Bandit eventually finds the group of Rebels. He starts forward. "Um...I was exiled from the Outlaws...They will probably want my hide...I did not want to hurt any of you. I was forced to do all of this...Because I killed Lena the Therizinosaurus...She tried to steal my treasures...And Bonesaw observed this and drafted me into his army...I beg you all to forgive an ally turned villain."
Gloom comes back to Bonesaw with a nice heaping wagonful of meat. "GOOD."
Bolona and her group walk into Bonesaw's den and offer him the skulls. "These were freshly killed," he states. He places them one by one on the shelf: Hook the Machairoceratops, Loki the Machairoceratops...Then he stopped. He laughed and placed the third skull on the shelf...
MACH THE MACHAIROCERATOPS.
Everyone stands still. They look off to the right. Gloom stood perched on a ledge, motionless, silently eyeing them, but below her was Vulture, Bonesaw's right-hand-man.
Vulture is an Austroraptor; he specializes in night missions, and he never fails at his job. He is licking his claws; he always licks them after sharpening them on a slab of stone, which he does daily. He has purple and black feathers, with the ones on his head styled into a fedora.
"Well done, Bolona. You have killed our foe, Mach. From now on, Bolona, I shall bestow upon you the name of Lieutenant..." He thought for a moment.
He turned to the others.
"You see this shit? I NAMED THIS SHIT. I GAVE THIS SHIT NAMED BOLONA A NEW TITLE. YOU BETTER RESPECT HER."
Lucious looks to the walls of the ravean. He leaps forth, claw entering any small gaps and cracks and starts climbing the wall, his left arm is doing well, despite the mutaion. He was finding great difficulty, he looked down at the Adder below, Adder wasn't very happy "I can't climb verticle suurfaces darn it" Lucious looked back up, "Neither can i" Moments later, he found himself and a small ledge, the ledge onyp sat a couple meters off the ground, so it shows how badly he was progressing.
Did you get permission to use and kill Mach?
Well, everybody from the past RP is dead sans Bolona and Rey, so I thought we might as well kill him off.
Adder looks around. "I might be able to climb up...Remember that technique I call 'The Jumping Talons?'"
He tries jumping and bouncing around on the walls in attempt to pull some kind of wall jump, but it just doesn't work. At least he chips off some of the walls.
"Maybe we could use the Stegoceras carcasses' intestines as ropes...Oh, wait, we ate them all."
Lucious begins to make good progress, but Adder is forced to just climb the walls...The rock walls are very unstable. One mistep sends you all the way back down to your demise.
Nevertheless Adder makes it to Lucious's ledge, where they notice a skeleton. It looks like...
"My god, is that really him?" Lucious is awestruck by the skeleton.
The skeleton looks deformed and pulverized, a Spinosaurus with a crushed skull, multiple broken bones, and...crystals for teeth?
"It is..." Adder looks at the Spinosaurus skeleton. "What was his name, Doom? Oh, wait...I think I know...GRIMDIANA BONES(amusing shout-outs)! No, wait, that's not it..."
They start climbing again. But faint tremors can be heard in the background, it almost seems like an earthquake is coming...With the deaths of thousands of animals six years ago the Rift suddenly began experiencing an increased amount of natural disasters...
The new lieutenant stepped back without saying anything. She didn't expect the new name, but was alright with it. The name was cooler then what her parents had given her. After that she approached General Bonesaw.
"Sir, I want to ask you for permission to remove Seargent Pebble from my group. He caused trouble all the way to here and even angried The Leader, by asking for promotion when I ordered him not to ." - said Bolona.
Appearance: His spots are dark blue, the other parts of his skin are dark grey.
Personality: Cold blooded predator, but kinda nice around his friends.
History: Born in (Insert the name of the ravine from my Aquatic Expasion). He was very aggressive and when his teeth had grown, he killed five of his eight brothers and four of his five sisters. Everyone, except his brother Poseidon, who, for the first 25 human years of his life, was his only friend, left him. Then, a Velociraptor named Bolona, who somehow was able to briefly understand Oceanic, thanks to her father, told the the whole Sea of Nothingness what was happening on land. Her translator was Catchy ('member that guy?) who was the first Aquatic Outlaw, but he died shortly afterwards, when exploring the caves of (Insert the name of the ravine from my Aquatic Expasion). After that, The Ocean had to choose a side - Outlaws or Neutrals or Rebels. Most Para-Clercis, Megalodons, Mosasaurus and Spinosaurus joined the Oulaws, rising their own Admiral in the name of (Leaving that one to Jai/Helix). The other half was split in two - most of the smaller creatures, such as Henodus, Itchy, etc. remained neutral. The Rebels were conceived of mostly Plesiosaurs, some Spinosaurus and other big creatures. Pluto and Poseidon joined the Oulaws, as most of the others of their species. There they made good friends. Pluto is now captain of a ship, constructed of six Megalodons, five Itchys(?) who are brave enough to fight for the rebels, two teenage Para-Clercis and three Mosasaurus, who are his lieutenants. Poseidon is lieutenant in Captain Zuro's (Megalodon) "ship".
Territory: When not somewhere fighting is on the Outlaw's side of (Insert the name of the ravine from my Aquatic Expasion).
Size: ☼ ☼ ☼
1. I won't start using the character until The Aquatic Expansion is ready.
2. I think good names for Aquatic battle units will be:
3-5 creatures: Seagull
6-15 creatures: Boat
16-45 creatures: Ship
3. Ela is no longer a major character if she's registered like one.
That's fine, I changed Ela to a secondary character a week ago, I think. If not I'll change it now.
It turns out that this is a Sinraptor, the apex predator in the region. Lucious is terrified and completely beats it up.
"Sheezus christ, Lucious, you didn't have to KILL IT, IT WOULD HAVE LEFT ON ITS OWN!" Adder is not amused.
"It was either that or we get eaten," Lucious says, looking down at the Sinraptor that he just killed. "I really didn't want to kill a Sinraptor...I think it knew more about us than we do ourselves..."
"IT'S! A! SINRAPTOR! They're like bears! They're not smart, they can't climb trees, they sleep all day long, and they eat sick-sackin'-shit!"
"So, are you--"
They are cut off by a roar in the cave.
"Good job, Lucious, because you've killed Boo Boo, Yogi Bear is now on the warpath and probably wants our hide!"
"Ah, yes, I would love to remove Pebble from your group. In fact, I never even appreciated him..."
Bonesaw turns to Pebble. "YOU ARE LIKE A STONE(no pun intended)! I TRY TO TELL YOU SOMETHING, BUT YOU NEVER LISTEN! I BANISH YOU TO THE VERY WEST OF THIS WRETCHED WORLD, WHERE YOU WILL LIVE AND DIE ALONE AND WITHOUT FRIENDS!"
Vulture laughs. "Cross the Leave River and go into the High Jungle, where the Masiakasaurus will hunt you down like a jackal. Or perhaps climb up to the Mountains of Nothingness and commit suicide by Gorgosaurus? I don't know, and I DON'T GIVE A SHIT! WE NEVER CARE FOR YOU, PEBBLE! NONE OF US CARE FOR EACH OTHER! WE KILL THE REBELS, THEN WE KILL EACH OTHER! And it's all in vain...For only Old One Eye will make it on top."
"What about everyone else?" Bolona/Lieutenant Dark Wing asks.
"No, you seven are fine. In fact, I am rather impressed with your skills, I must say. Your next mission...heh...I know he is gone...Find The Great Bandit, that wretched traitor...and KILL HIM. NO MERCY!"
The seven leave, but Bonesaw stops Pebble.
"NOT YOU! TAKE ONE MORE STEP IN THEIR DIRECTION AND YOU WILL BE EXECUTED!"
The snarls of starved and bloodthirsty Proceratosaurus and Ceratosaurus fills the lair.
Pebble walks away, but Bonesaw stops him again.
"Wait, come back! I need to tell you something!"
So naturally he turns around.
"Yes, General Bonesaw. My brilliant, shining, glorious Gener--"
"General Bonesaw will suffice, or I will never get my point to you. I wanted you to come back so I could tell you to NEVER COME BACK AGAIN!"
"No...You...You lead the attack...The Chasmosaurus Clan...I remember. You lead three Chasmosaurus to burn down my home and decapitate my father...I couldn't do anything to stop it...I...honestly like beating you up...I need you to join the Outlaws once more...So I can kill you more times over again...I hate you!" Tip: DO NOT try to ask for redemption from Cinder while she's grieving over a lost friend. It's not going to end well.
"Yes, but that was the mission! I never knew you before it happened, I didn't like what Bonesaw told me, but I had to do it because I literally had no other choice! It's going to be better now...I need redemption from you...They will be hunting me down...And you guys as well...We need protection! And...I'm going to tell you a major plot made by Outlaws...Tomorrow night, when the Rebels gather...and Commander Yellow Jacket, the leader of the Rebels, gives a speech to the Rebels...Gloom and Vulture...will assassinate him!"
"I don't care! You killed my family, and I don't care if you die or not! All I need is for you to DIE ALONE!" Cinder begins to lose herself. "I HATE ALL OF YOU OUTLAWS, ALWAYS DISRUPTING PEACE IN THE RIFT! YOU DROVE US FROM OUT HOMES, YOU SLAUGHTERED THOUSANDS...YOU--" She collapses on the ground, breaking into tears and inconsolable sobbing.
"Please...I ask you...I need to be protected...Please, allow me to join you Rebels again...I want this Rift to be converted back to its good days, when warfare did not exist..."
Everyone thinks about whether to accept The Great Bandit into the Rebels.
Thanks for leading Lieutenant Bolona Dark Wing to Wraak!
"Well, we got rid of this annoyance!" - comments Lorion.
"Yeah, we did, but now we are one less" - answered Bolona.
"Don't mind it! We will find someone to take his place" - Etara was happy that she was on the way to a kill.
"Umm...do we know were are we going?" - asked He.
"I heard that the Rebels are close to Ruined Castle, where they fought the General and The Bandit there, close to a ravine." - Moloc added.
"Okay then, what are we waiting for? Let's go until there is some daylight!" - Bolona was excited too.
I change Wraak to being uncouncious and Exedra only slightly scratched on the belly by Proceratosauruses. I won't edit my posts above.
Exedra stepped closer to The Great Bandit. He didn't hear the conversation he had with Cinder.
" 'Member me, bitch?" - Exedra said and to his side to show him the letters TGB on his back - The Great Bandit's initials. - "You probably didn't expect me to be here, judging by your face. Ready to have your brain stepped on and spread out on the ground? Your lungs filled with your guts and your hearth - piersed by my horn and left there as a throphy?"
In that moment they feeled the ground rumble. Something big was sprinting through the area, and it was coming closer. Finally, a giant Brontosaurus appeared behind a hill, along with a Styracosaurus, a Proceratops and two Gallimimuses. From the Brontosaurus jumped two smaller creatures - a Velociraptor and a Proceratosaurus. They got closer and the Velociraptor shouted:
"Well, well, well, what do we have here? The Rebels, huh? And if that isn't The Great Bandit! This will be a great fight! Prepare to be slayed by Lieutenant Bolona Darkwing's posse!"
Bonesaw didn't know about Wraak, but oh well. It was a coincidence.
Prior to this mess...
"I think we should accept The Great Bandit as one of our own, he must be true to his word," Randall tries to reason with everyone. Being the smartest one in the group, everyone considers this.
Cinder stares at The Great Bandit. "I...I'm sorry...Midas...I forgive you...I just want Adder to come back..."
But after they consider forgiving him, the posse charges down the hill.
"Hmph. They must be after me. I will fight alongside you all...Just this once..." He looked at Exedra. "I am very sorry for torturing you...But don't think we are allies yet. We must stick together...For our survival!"
He turns to Bolona. "Do you see all of these guys? I stand with them! And tell Bonesaw that he's a sociopathic bitch for me!"
They stare each other down. Suddenly...
"Hold it, hold it! Don't you know fights aren't fights without me!?"
Everyone turns at the voice. Then Etara throws a sucker punch at Stalagmite, who saws at Etara's arm. The fight is on. Vulture runs to join the Outlaws.
"I thought you were back with Bonesaw," Bolona asks Vulture as they chase Randall.
"Naw, I left Pebble with Gloom! They tied him up and he's going to be executed soon! I hope we can get home fast enough to see it happen..."
Pebble is tied up by thick ropes and bound to a tree. Six Proceratosaurus run in a circle around Pebble. They snarl and pounce, attempting to rip the Oviraptor's face off.
Adder looks up at the commotion up above. "More Outlaws? Jeez, I'm starting to regret this...Cinder's going to kill me."
They stare at the shadows, and another Sinraptor, much bigger than the previous, pounces out of the tunnel. This one has brown skin with red eyes, a green head, and purple stripes.
Lucious jumps back and points at the Sinraptor. "It...It's Devil Thorn! The Demon of Revenge! He's come to collect our souls!"
Adder stares the Sinraptor down. "Shit..."
The Demon of Revenge is said to be a massive Sinraptor living at the bottom of Mount Luckyone, feeding on Extinction's sacrifices. He himself ate Extinction as he fell to his death.
And he has come back to eat Adder and Lucious...
There is no fighting this one, so start running!
Both of them back off, but Devil Thorn is faster. He jabs at Lucious, scraping his tail. The two run through the tunnels, attempting to outrun the predator.
"Wait, is that...this isn't him, it can't be...I saw him die..." - she thinks to herself.
"Hey, don't stop" - said to her Vulture.
At this time Lorion dashed at Stalagmite and broke one of his spikes with his horn. Stalagmite turned and slapped him with his tail on the head, stunning Lorion for a couple of seconds, enough for Exedra to pierse his left leg and leave a long, deep wound to his side.
Moloc tried to hit Cinder with his head, but misses. It wasn't a wasted try, however, because she almost fell to the ground.
Bolona gets closer to Randall and jumps onto him. He tries to throw her off, but she just stabbed im with her claws, so she could stay on him safely.
Etara jumped on Exedra and started scratching and biting, so he couldn't thrown her off. Eventually, he did and stomped her legs. He left her that way, helpless as he was charging at Moloc. He dodged his tail once, twice. The third time it hit him and send him half-concious and with a few broken ribs on the ground.
Lucious Runs as fast as his three sain legs would allow, the tunnels dip with light then dark then light then dark, as holes and burrows from overtop show the small detail needed to navagate through while running. Before you know it, a loud screech was heard, it echoed through the caves like a depressed man with a trumpet. "Darn it, the bats"
They stop, for if they go further, they would shorly perish. The sinoraptors appears behind them, and the two turn to look at the threat behind. "The bats it is"
And with that, they sprint back in course, with a raptor getting ever nearer and the screeches getting ever louder. As they ran, Lucious was mummbling a plead to himself "Please let them be small, please let them be small" Then, they stumble apon the inner chamber, the inner heart, the room that was the inside of the mountain, so very changed and disrupted. Along the ground bones scattered and chitin of moths sat. And fighting amunst themselves was The Onycs, not just any, the larger cusins.
Every pair of eyes in that cave turn to the intruders, and the humming screems of hate will out their breathless lungs. "What do we do now?"
Lucious is pretty close to losing it, of all bats, it had to be these ones "I say we go back the way we came, the raptor should understand"
Moloc is annoyed of Cinder. She pecks him endlessly, as he tries to get her to fly.
Lorion sees Exedra, as he is on the ground gaining conciousness. He starts to rise slowly with pain, falls on the ground again and gets back up. He turns to face Lorion, the two lock horns. Exedra is slowly pushed out of the battle from Lorion. Then, to his enemy's surprise, he moves and lets Lorion to make a step forward and pierces though his side. The flesh was warm and bloody as it slided around his horns. The blood from Lorion's hearth splashed on his face. The Styracosaurus screamed and fell to the ground. Exedra too fell unconcious from the struggle.
Bolona dodged a few kicks from The Great Bandit and jumped backwards.
"I will kill you! You and all your friends you have here!" - Bolona said in blood freezing tone.
"Continue dreaming!" - said Randall and punched her again.
The lieutenent jumped on The Great Bandit's neck thore off his feathers before being forced to jump off for her not to be killed by Randall's tumb-spike.
The Sinraptors never give up the chase, as if dealing with Onics wasn't enough, it smashes through the wall and follows them...
The two of them run out of the heart and into the tunnel, with the Sinraptor right behind them, thankfully the bats do not follow...yet. Once they get to a room full of light a small tremor hits. It triggers a rockslide and stalagtites to fall from the ceiling. Several rocks trap the Demon of Revenge's head in the rocks, but it manages to grab Lucious's shriveled leg. More focused on Lucious than its own predicament, it tries to drag Lucious under the same rocks that he is trapped under, and Adder grabs Lucious's other leg...It's a tug of war...
"Arghh...We've lost them again!" - said Pluto in an angry tone.
"Really? Well, thats bad" - commented one of the Megalodons named Tukulo (male).
"Shut up! I didn't order you to talk!"
"Should we search for them, Captain? We think we saw them go in Coral Walls' direction" - asked him the Itchys, who's names are Lomy, Tory, Groul, Makto and Femy (female, female, male, male and female).
"Yes, and go fast" - answered Pluto. - "Trik (male Mosasaurus, Pluto's first lieutenant), come here!"
"You didn't have the time to tell me - what did Recam, the Captain of 4th Frigate tell you before we were called to hunt these Rebels?"
"Well, he said he is very impressed with my battling skills. He thinks I am ready to teach some inexperienced Mosasauruses in a Seagull Flock, if you can do without me" - said with excited voice Trik.
"Hmm...Very well! I'll talk with him after we get back!" - Pluto wasn't sure that his lieutenant was ready for that promotion.
"Thank you, sir!"
Half an hour later Lomy came screaming:
"Captain, Captain! We saw them! The others encircled them!"
"Great! Moir (male Mosasaurus, Pluto's second lieutenant) - get Tukulo, Siro and Plier (all male Megalodons) and get them from the south. Lily (female Mosasaurus, Pluto's third lieutenant) - get Rema, Coly and Mira (all female Megalodons) and attack them from the west. Me, Trik and Lomy will attack from the north! Rend and Bor (two young male Parahelicoprions) - you stay here. GO!"
Ten minutes later, they saw the group - one Plesiosaurus and two Itchys encircled by three Itchys and one bloody corpse.
"Oh, no! They've killed Tory!" - Lomy said.
"ATTACK" - shouted Pluto.
Then he himself swimmed to the Plesiosaurus and bit off his head. Siro and Plier took one of the Itchys and the second one was killed by Lily and Coly. They kept the heads and ate the corpses of their enemies.
"What will we do with Tory?" - asked Lomy.
"We'll tie him to Trik and burry him home"
Tukulo got some seaweed and Makto tied the body up. They arrived home two hours afterv they left with the trophies from their hunt. Pluto watched Tory's burrial ceremony, which was very plain - the Itchys just pushed him in a cave stream that leads to God knows where. After that he visited Captain Recam.
"Captain Pluto, good to see you!" - said the Frigate Captain. - "I wanted to talk with you about your first lieutenant - Trik. He is very good battler and a very good teacher, from I can see when he is not around you!"
"A good teacher, sir? Well, maybe, but I haven't noticed anything special in him as a teacher in my Schooner" - Pluto was puzzeled.
"Well, apparently not in your Schooner, but when he isn't on a mission he teaches the youngest of his species of some simple battle techniques and tactics. We are missing these types of leaders who can teach and most importantly, stand the young ones, who won't easily get frustrated and kill the youngs before they become good fighters."
"I understand. Then, I hope he will do his job well, sir. Should I tell him to visit you?" - asked Pluto.
"Yes, please. I also heard that one of your scouts was killed, right?"
"Yes, sir. Tory was brave and died in battle. I need someone in his place and also someone to replace Trik."
"OK, I will send lieutenant Coralby to help you with that. Goodbye, Captain!"
Pluto easily found Trik, who was playing with his younger siblings.
"Congratulations, Trik! Captain Recam officially decided to promote you to a Seagull Flock Leader. Go visit him so you can choose your recruits!" - Pluto was happy for his first lieutenant, but he kijnda didn't want him to leave his Schooner - Trik was his first recruit and they became good friends and he was also a perfect battler and tactic.
"Thank you, sir! Thank you, thank you! I am going right now!"
After that Pluto met with liutenant Coralby, who was strong and very scarred old Plesiosaur who took him to the barracks. There, Coralby showed him a young Itchy named Ira and a teenage Plesiosaur named Leric.
The day had almost ended and Pluto got to his cave to sleep - it was a hard day for him. The next will also be - he had to choose a new third lieutenant from the Megalodons.
Dawn goes down to day, and day goes down to dusk. The sun sets, and the two forces are still clashing. But suddenly the Outlaws blindside the Rebels and attack them all from behind, knocking them out.
Night falls, and the posse hauls the Rebels back to camp with ropes. Once they get back, they write notes and give them to a Nyctosaurus flock.
Bonesaw sees a Nyctosaurus drop one of the notes at his door step. "A party? They caught him? Brilliant!"
He leaves his den with Gloom, forgetting that Pebble is still inside.
Adder slashes the Sinraptor's face, and jerks Lucious away from it. The Demon roars, pulls its head out from under the rocks, and stomps away in defeat.
Hours later, they escape the ravine by climbing out of the hole blasted on top of them. "Well, we finally got out, and...where's everyone else?" Adder looks around.
He looks at the ground and sees footprints leading to the High Jungle.
"Ugh...Good fucking lord."
Lucious and Adder follow the footprints to the Jungle, where they see a party. Cinder and Wraak are being hung from a tree by their wrists, some Masiakasaurus are riding on Randall rodeo style, Drift was tied up, a muzzle over his mouth and his feet locked up by shackles, Rover was also tied up, Stalagmite was flipped over, some carnivores were drinking blood in skulls and broke the skulls using Exedra's horn, Exedra was unconscious, The Great Bandit's limbs were tied together, there were tons of Outlaws partying, there is Gloom in the corner, there is Bonesaw, there is Tomahawk, there is Drip, there is Vulture, there is Bolona...
Adder and Lucious stay hidden and observe. They try to discuss a plan to save their friends.
Don't currently have time to write a story for the aquatic thing, but I'll get to it when I do.
Bolona is looking at Wraak. She recognized his coloring on the battlefield and when they captured the others, she fixed his hand in position. She looked at him again and saw that he was a lucky bitten - larger than her father.
"He must be Resseona's son Wraak" - she thought to herself.
After they got to the High Jungle, she kept staring at Wraak as he was unconscious. She tied him up unintentionally careful, so his hand could be in place. Bolona was thinking about her father and how he was killed - hunting for food and captured and tortured to his death by some Rebel leader, when the Rebels where stronger, so he could find the Outlaw's hideout. But her father wasn't an Outlaw and nothing came out of it, except for Shadow's death. When she heard of it, she joined the Outlaws, so she could get her revenge. And Wraak reminded Bolona of Shadow.
"What are you staring at? Is he your friend?" - said Gloom as she was coming towards Bolona. She knew Bolona didn't understand why does the Outlaws wanted to destroy the world and she only joined for revenge and always teased her about it.
"No. He is my nephew. He is a son of lucky bitten and my sister." - answered in cold tone Bolona.
"Hehe...If you'll miss him too much you may want to skip the execution"
I thought in the previous RP Shadow killed himself in a fit of grief and rage?
"We'd better save them fast, before the executions begin," Lucious suggests.
Adder slips into the darkness and climbs up a tree. Upon seeing a Stegoceras hiding in the tree, he stabs it. Blood shoots out of the Stegoceras's mouth as it falls directly onto a Nodosaurus.
Before anybody notices, he jumps to the next tree and saws off a branch, which falls and slices off a Parasaurolophus's head.
By now the Outlaws are beginning to notice something. Adder works faster, slicing up whatever and whoever gets in his way. He kills two Arthroleuras, knocks out a Triceratops, cuts up a branch, kills three Gallimimus, cuts up another branch.
Finally he gets to Cinder. "Hey ho, look who's here..."
Wraak and Cinder look up. "Hey, Adder's back! How was your day in the ravine? But seriously, help a good man out here."
Cinder smiles the biggest smile she's ever had. "ADDER! YOU'RE ALIVE! I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD!"
When she yells this everyone looks up. "Whoops."
Adder cuts the ropes holding Cinder and Wraak, and all three fall to the ground.
"Okay, Wraak, you get the Gorgosaurus(Drip) in the corner. And tell Lucious to free Stalagmite and Drift. Cinder and I will deal with these devils!"
The Outlaws part in two, and Gloom walks up to the two of them. Behind her were five Deinonychus, all drunk, all pickled, all bloodthirsty. Maybe if there were two or three you could scare them off so long as you were prepared with some good weaponry, but not if there were five, plus a Proceratosaurus, and were drunk.
"Another day of smashing heads. I love today! But promise you never disappear like that, Adder," Cinder looks enthusiastically at the enemy.
The same can't be said for Adder. "Another pointless conflict is about to begin. Sigh..."
LordHelix990 wrote: I thought in the previous RP Shadow killed himself in a fit of grief and rage?
Well, I did that just so there was an end of the story. Also I wanted to have a reason for Bolona to join the Outlaws.
"OK. I'm ready" - said Wraak while cracking his neck. He climbed on a tree and from branch to branch, before anyone could see him he was on Drip's head. He shouted to Lucious, before wispering to the Gorgosaurus - "Well, what do we have here? These are some nice eyeballs, you know. It will be a shame if someone destroyed them"
As he was saying that he felt pain in his back. He turned and was pushed from Drip's head by Bolona. She jumped on top of him and tried to held him to the ground. Wraak was stronger and kicked her in the stomach, then opened a shallow scratch on her side and again climbed on Drip, who was charging at Stalagmite. He used his healthy hand to pierce Drip's eye. The Gorgosaurus screamed and thew off Wraak, who was attacked by He. The Protoceratops almost cut off his tail with his sharp beak-like mouth. While enraged Drip kicked He, opening his belly.
"HEY, RANDALL! What should you do when you're being attacked by theropods?"
He stops, drops, and rolls, killing all of the Masiakasaurus. "Whoa, why didn't I think about that?"
Drip slams his tail frantically, nearly breaking Wraak's other arm, but also flipping over Stalagmite. He roars and slams his spikes into Drip's leg; two feet of keratin piercing into flesh. Drip limps away, but not before slashing at Lucious. Exedra suddenly snaps awake and stabs a Corythosaurus.
Now for Rover and Drift.
Wraak and Exedra take on the Deinonychus as Adder fights Gloom and Cinder frees Rover, Drift, and The Great Bandit.
Wraak was still preparing to attack, when Exedra screamed and ran over two of the Deinonychuses, heading towards Bolona. She turned and slided below him and made a run for Wraak. Before she could get to him, one of the Deinonychuses fell with pierced eyeball, skull and brain. Bolona ran to catch Wraak, but was thrown agains a tree by Exedra's horn. Another Deinonychus who was close to her didn't have that luck and his body hanged on Exedra's split horn. Wraak turned to Exedra and the last survivor made a scratch across his eye, before being stomped by Exedra. The Velociraptor screamed.
"Eeeaghrtaaaa...it hurts...you will pay for that!" - he said and kicked a passing Proceratosaurus in the stomach, before slashing his belly and letting his innerds to scatter on the ground. - "You will too!" - and then he did the same with one bambiraptor. He went berserk, killing everything in sight - a bambiraptor, a proceratosaurus, a compsognathus, another two bambiraptors...It seemed like that continued for hours, but it was only two minutes. He saw Bolona running towards Adder.
Adder simply slaps Bolona, being about 200 times more massive than her, but is cornered by Vulture, who is about his same size.
"No...Please not today...I know that I'm sucidal, but please don't kill me like this..."
"HI!!!" Cinder popped up from behind and bit Vulture, scaring him off.
Cinder flies away and breaks off Rover and Drift's bonds. She comes back and drops a spider into an Agustinia's ear. The Agustinia rampages over everything, trampling a majority of the Outlaws. Bolona is stepped on, but escaped, just barely avoiding death.
Adder walks into a corner and observes the war zone. The Great Bandit did a jump kick from above a tree, missed an Agustinia, and faceplanted in the ground. Randall was punching everything while there were two drunk Deinonychus on his head. Stalagmite was beating up Lata and Tiri. Rover was immobilizing Tomahawk while Drift was slapping him. Exedra was locking horns with a Pentaceratops. Cinder and Wraak were rodeoing on Moloc's back. It's AWESOME.
He plops himself down on top of a tree, and pulls out his phone. He jams it into a boombox, presses Shuffle, and...
...One Direction came on? "I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT GOT HERE! JUST--" He tries again, skipping to the next songs, only for them to be "Never Gonna Give You Up," the Sonic the Hedgehog main theme, and ten minutes of some guy screaming. "THIS BITCH EMPTY!"
He kicks the radio onto the ground, diconnects the phone, and throws it at Gloom. "YEET!"
Moloc swings Cinder off of his back. She flies directly into Adder's tree, which is surrounded by a massive horde of Outlaws. Naturally everybody hates Dilophosaurus; they are feared and loathed as bringers of misfortune. Adder sings a song about how much his species is hated.
"Dilophosaurus can't be trusted,
Dilophosaurus's heart is rusted,
Dilophosaurus has no class,
Dilophosaurus is an--"
"Um, Adder? There are kids here, you know?" Cinder questions Adder's self-depreciating song.
"Oh. Well, I might as well say it. HEY! EVERYBODY! DILOPHOSAURUS IS AN--"
He is interrupted once more by an extremely loud bellow. Randall had jabbed Moloc's jugular, broken his front legs, and punched out his heart. Moloc looked high at the air and toppled over, crushing dozens of Outlaws underneath him.
Bolona grumbles as she sees her posse being torn up. Lorion was impaled, Etara was back at the Ruined Castle, He was gutted, Pebble was exiled, now Moloc is dead...Now there is only the Gallimimus twins, Lata and Tiri, two optimistic and airheaded fools who couldn't hurt a fly.
Bolona thinks about what to do to Adder and Cinder at the top of the tree.
To start the aquatic expansion. Hopefully "Trsshe/"Trisha(Jaigantic's scrapped Plesiosaurus character) can join us.
Tomorrow I leave the comfy confines of my home and visit France, Italy, and London for three weeks. With all of the terrorist movements going on, I may not come back alive...Just kidding. I just love to make everything dark and macabre.
Man, I'm starting to miss Noonyeyz...
Allen swims and does barrel rolls in the ocean. They were after him. Hunting him. Seeking his brains. All to sacrifice to THEM.
He begins to lose his mind. He sees three Protosphyraena swimming dangerously close to him. A Spinosaurus was launching them at Allen one by one, and he isn't alone. In addition to the Spinosaurus, there is a decently sized Schooner(a group of Outlaws consisting of nine to twenty animals). The Schooner consists of the Spinosaurus, two Dunkleosteus, four Protosphyraena, a Kronosaurus, two Platecarpus, three Henodus, five Pachyrhacis, an Ammonite, and a Dakosaurus. They chase him through the reefs, through trenches, throughout caves, above the surface, even through Rebel territory when necessary. They keep following Allen no matter where he goes. Eventually he locates a small cave in the sea floor of the Sea of Something. He takes a nose dive and bursts through the cave. The Kronosaurus attempts to follow him, but fails, and temporarily gets his mouth stuck as punishment. The Outlaws turn around and swim all the way back to the Nightmare.
Allen eventually emerges from the cave, and swims back to the Coral Walls. He manuevers through the sleeping Henodus; one touch would send them into a bellowing and screeching frenzy. Allen finds his den, and attempts to sleep, but can't, because he's awoken by his friends outside.
(If any of you want, you can create an aquatic character to be one of the friends, I will control the other one.)
Wolf read what Helix had been writing, leaves the spoon filled with ice cream, cracking his hand and preparing to write this:
Pluto was awaken by a courier Itchy:
"Sir, Captain Recam commands you to go to his office, right now!"
"Thank you!" - said Pluto, now fully awaken. There must be a reason why Captain Recam would want him to visit in that early hour. The sun hasn't rised yet and Pluto stumbled in the dark to find Recam's office. There where four other dinosaurs - Trik, now officially a Seagull Flock leader, a Megalodon, who Pluto recognized as Lepril, Caprtain of 14th Brig, a Plesiosaur and an Itchy. After him in the hall entered a Parahelicoprion and after him Captain Recam.
"Well, we are all here! I am sorry for awakening you this early, but we have orders from the Admiral. Many Neutrals and Rebels are crossing the Nightmare to begin a new life or regroup and think of a plan how to stop us respectfuly. Their main ways from getting out of here are between Vulkaan Eiland and La Palm Tree, between La Palm Tree and The Gaysers and between Lone Isle and Another Flat. We need patrols there. Captain Trevor of 7th Frigate already send some of his Brigs to Lone Isle and Another Flat. Captain Lepril and Seagull Clupo (Plesiosaurus, a Seagull Flock leader) will patrol around the Gaysers and La Palm Tree. Captain Pluto, Seagull Trik and Seagull Ret (the Itchy) will be around Vulkaan Eiland and La Palm Tree. Go get your crews and I expect you to be gone before sunrise! Oh, and Captain Pluto, take the young ones please"
Pluto swim back calling Lory, who was his courier. She awakened all the others and they started preparing for the journey. The Captain swim close to Tukulo and said loudly:
"From this day Mr. Tukulo is officially the third lieutenant of 21th Schooner from His Terror's fleet!"
Everyone looked at Tukulo and started flapping their fins. Fukulo was a great warrior, but not that well diciplined and Pluto figured out that being a third lieutenant may improve his behaviour. After that they along with Trik and Ret send out on the way to Vulkan Eiland.
He goes outside and sees his friends waiting for him: a Geosaurus and a Trinacomerium. "I wanted to drop by and ask if you're ready to beat up the Outlaws tomorrow!" The Trinacomerium is very excitable, a perfect contrast to the subdued Allen.
"Maybe...Maybe not...I'm afraid I can't talk with you right now...If Don Morris sees me outside this late at night he's gonna--"
"HEY! ALLEN! GET YOUR ASS BACK INSIDE THE CAVE!"
"You'd better go now!" The Trinacomerium and Geosaurus swim away.
Allen swims to the back of the cave and sees Don Morris. Morris is Allen's adoptive father; an Archeleon who was a war-scarred veteran. He was very strict, and simply cannot go a day without hollering at somebody.
"What's the rule about leaving our cave at night? DON'T. Not if it's 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM!" Morris reminds Allen about their rule.
"Sorry, Morris, the Outlaws were trying to kill me! Do you want me to die or not?"
"You're not going to die if you don't go outside. But you will if you leave at night. You know the Outlaws like to kill young Rebels at the later hours! And yet you still decided to leave, after I done told you not to leave the house!"
"The Outlaws scared me out of the house so that they could hunt me down! It's not my fault!"
The two stare.
"Sorry. I understand that there's a really awful thing going around recently. The Outlaws, I think they're called? They've been destroying our populations on the land and in the seas."
"I know. I try not to get involved in it."
"That's a good thing. Go to sleep, Allen."
Allen swims to his room and closes the door.
Vulture attempts to grab Adder's neck and pull him to the ground, but Adder kicks him. Vulture falls out of the tree and swears revenge. "I underestimated you just this once, Adder. Next time, you simply die."
With that he leaves, and everyone follows him. The Rebels look at each other as if to say, "What the fuck just happened?"
Nevertheless everyone is free and not tied up, and they trek back to the Ruined Castle.
"That was awesome! You just hopped into the tree and threw the phone at Gloom and that made a distraction for Randall to kill the Brontosaurus and--"
"Yeah, I guess. Is there a day that could be any bloodier than this? When I jumped down a ravine to save Lucious, fought off a Stegoceras posse, ran from a Sinraptor through the Ruined Castle, walked all the way there to save you?"
"I guess not."
"So I'm going to be staying with you guys now. Forever. No abandoning you, and making you extremely worried. I guess by saving Lucious I ended up causing more trouble for you than I did Lucious or me..."
"Hey everyone! I'm joining the Rebels now. Where do I stay?" The Great Bandit walks up to Adder.
Adder stares at Cinder, who stares back with a stupid expression. He puts his hands on Cinder's head and whispers. "KILL ME NOW."
"Not so fast, buddy" - said Exedra with lingering tone. - "Lucious, do you remember Colt the Kentrosaurus? He was chased by the Outlaws who he had supposedly betrayed. We helped him. He killed many Outlaws along with us. One night, he killed half our posse, before me and Stalagmite were awaken by Polty's screams. The poor Procoptodon had his lungs pierced before he died. When he saw me getting up he ran. The three of us chased him for two hours before catching him and we tear him apart, plate by plate, spike by spike, piece of flesh by piece of flesh, organ by organ, bone by bone. It cost us eight of our friends. I don't want this to happen again."
"Wow...That's dark...really dark..." - said Wraak terrified.
"It is. That is why I don't trust this Outlaw piece of Gallimimus-like crap."
Bolona was running with difficulties along with the other Outlaws.
"Tiri" - she shouted. - "Tiri, get your ass over here and help me!"
Tiri did what she was ordered to and continued running.
Regardless everyone sleeps for the night. The Great Bandit jumps up to Cinder, who is sleeping on a branch. "Hey, is this branch taken?"
"Don't know...This is Adder's branch. Ask him, not me."
"Um, Adder? Can I--"
Adder poked his head out of the branch above. "NO."
Adder dropped to the branch, and grabbed The Great Bandit with his claws. "I SAID NO! I NEVER CARED FOR YOU, AND I ABSOLUTELY HATE YOU WITH EVERY INCH OF MY MIND! CAN YOU KILL YOURSELF NOW SO I DON'T HAVE TO DO IT FOR YOU?"
The Great Bandit doesn't respond. "I have tried to be nice, and asked for redemption. None of you gave me what I wanted; a family. You killed thousands of Outlaws, you could cause the ecosystem to collapse on itself. You're no better than me. All of you are a bunch of dirty, pathetic cowards trying to make big names for yourself. Now you will allow me to sleep on this branch, or else I will rat out your location, and all of you will die within the hour."
Adder and Cinder shrug.
So The Great Bandit gets the luxury of sleeping in the tree, while Adder and Cinder huddle at the bottom of the tree, shivering from the winter air.
Cinder wakes up before anybody else does again. "Early to bed and early to rise, makes me healthy, wealthy, and wise!"
Adder wakes up immediately after. "Early to rise and early to bed, makes me healthy but socially dead."
Cinder laughed. "Oh, Adder, you haven't changed at all since we first met."
"What, I haven't changed from the angst-ridden Dilophosaurus who tried to kill you a year ago?"
"I mean, not too much..."
They remember their argument with The Great Bandit. "I think I remember a story...Did you ever hear of the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise? No, wait, wrong one. Did you ever hear of the tragedy of Lizard Eater the Allosaurus? He was a friend of mine. We were very close friends...One day, he betrayed me. He stabbed my back and left me to die at the hands of...Salty...Then...I escaped...he committed mass genocide on the Machairoceratops and drove them to near extinction...My grandfather was a good friend of Mach, believed to be the last Machairoceratops.
"The Machairoceratops have been returning, but his parents exiled him...He swore revenge and retreated to the Shadowlands. He returned a year later with a massive army of Tarbosaurus and Ceratosaurus...Stalagmite, Randall and I had to fight them all off...We chased Lizard Eater down to Hell's House, and he committed suicide by jumping into the volcano.
"I never looked back onto him with pleasure...He was a Rebel...But he died an Outlaw...A thief...He deserved to die...Some other friends followed him...My friends Razorback the Dacentrurus...Axe the Juravenator...Vicious the Lythronax...He was the reason why I became suicidal. I lost all of my past friends to betrayal, they left me in private and attacked me when I least expected it...It's why I never socialize with anybody I don't know...It's why I tried to kill you in a fit of rage a year ago...It's why I tried to kill myself a month ago and left you in tears...The Outlaws...They've been controlling me. They manipulated me into the misanthrope you know as Adder. They're just a bunch of parasites. I should be dead..."
Cinder was listening to the whole thing. "I...I'm sorry, Adder...I know you've been through a rough life. I've been no better. My parents were killed, my adoptive family was murdered by the Chasmosaurus Clan...
"...But I can't get myself to hate the Outlaws. They're good inside, you know that...They must have been held in line by fear and not respect..."
Cinder recognizes their calls. "Oh, no! They've come back!"
Surely enough four Chasmosaurus charged into the area. Cinder recognizes them as the same ones that killed her father. They were holding flares and torches. They had white skin, white hoods, white frills, white heads, and black eyes. One by one they threw the flares and torches on the ground near the trees, burning them down. Animals charge out of the fire like crazy; an Ampelosaurus almost crushes Stalagmite.
The Rebels wake up and try to run from the Chasmosaurus and fire. But since they went a day without food yesterday, all they can do is amble...
"The Outlaws are trying to destroy the world" - said Exedra with his deep, creepy voice. - "The Rebels are trying to stop the Outlaws. That's it. There's no evil, there's no good. There are just points of view."
"Why would the Outlaws want to destroy the world they are living in? That makes no sense" - Wraak added.
"There is a legend, that has been like a religion to the Outlaws" - said Exedra. - "If you wonder from where I know it, there was that very old Velociraptor in The Bandit's torture chambers. She knew all about the Outlaws and why they do all the things they do. She sing to me that song:
There was once a perfect world,
world full of perfect creatures,
world full of happiness and life.
There was once another world,
another world of evil,
world of pain and death.
They combined together,
and the war began.
The evil and the good fought,
but one should be the dominant.
"What is right and what is wrong?"
said the spirits of the dead.
"There is nothing right and wrong"
said the oldest voice from under the earth.
"You shall let them fight,
'til one of them stands alone on a mountain peak,
lookin' at the empty world,
seeing the ghosts before he dies.
The side who dies last,
shall return more powerful than ever!"
"But where should it return?
The world will be destroyed."
"All the ghosts combined together,
would recreate what was lost.
In that new world will dominate the winner.
When the world is either full of good,
or competely evil,
it shall never recreate again."
The gods have made their decision,
either one should stand.
The dead's ghosts shall watch from the stars.
And one day, the world would never recreate.
That is the Outlaw's mission - to stop the world from recreating, making place for another more perfect one, where we won't exist. Every time they win the war, when they have the last stand, they get closer to their goal."
The Clan spreads out and a figure runs in. "I would say sweet dreams to you all...But there may not be any left."
"I heard your entire tale, you two-headed witch(Adder). That tale of Lizard Eater...Yes, he was a great guy. Betrayal...That fills me up with passion and bloodlust! And you decided to wangst about it just because you got betrayed."
Vulture slaps Adder and turns to everyone else. He chips Exedra's horn, kicks Wraak in the face, and bites Cinder's neck. Then he looks at Adder again and punches him before he can react.
"SUCK IT UP, EMO BOY."
He circles Adder and Cinder. The Chasmosaurus Clan shake their heads and bellow at the Rebels. "I think that the Dilophosaurus here is a complete loser. He's a pathetic fraud, a guy too weak to betray his own kind and eat their flesh. And that is to say nothing about how he and his Anhanguera friend screeched like a fool as we caught them on that one day and cut into their hearts again...and again...and again..."
"YOU TRY AND TURN THEM AGAINST ME! I can kill you right now, right here!"
Vulture laughs, but is met with an arm with four claws.
Sea gulls too, i see a seagull captin somewhere above, a flying land animal.
Rover, Drift and Lucious didn't do much of sleeping. They just spoke, Then Drift brought up a little thought "You guys need a break, its a none stop rally of violence, take a vacation, tell everyone to go their own ways for a while, they can't follow everyone"
The brands its way into their minds, a vacation, a holiday, a break. that would be nice.
In the deepest of the sea, the deepest we know of right now, this very moment.
A tusoteuthis swims graciously in the open water, he has his eyes faced up in case of predators above. Then, he reaches the bank that leads to the shallower water, the light, dimmly above. He follows along, grazing his tongue against the sand as he does, and then he stops, pausing as he feels the water treating him unwell, the inplesant vibrations of movement. He turns his whole body so his tentacles face forward and seazes something small.
He pulls it in and whilst squeezing it, he shoves it in between the birth place of every elongated arm, the beak. Tasty.
He continues forth, reaching an area he would much like to avoid, the bottom of a reef, down the reefs lays rock and stone and sand, all forming pockets and caves. One foul move and a liopleuodon could have one hell of a successful ambush.
So he avoids every cave he sees, memorizing the path he normally takes. Then, the water turns black as he empties his sacks, and speeds forth past in momentary fright. A pair of jaw snaps out the ink, teeth long and sharp and empty handed, a failed ambush.
He settles down, in the reef above, in a small cave belonging to a himself.The cave can fit no threat bigger than himself, considering the squeeze he made to fit through.
Name: English=Sudget [Oceanic=Seu-dge-eat]
Species: Giant squid tusoteuthis
Appearence: Black-navy blue with dark red [Simular to Arks default colour]
Since tusoteuthis is the thought ansestor to the vampire squid, it would quite possibly not be hugely incorrect for it to have a few spikes on its tenticles like the vampire squid [No blood sucking]
Personality: Naive and quick reflexes, Oceanic animals are not as mentally complex to that of land animals, they are quite simple [Don't start massive endless killing sprease and resultless wars with endless murder, most of the time at least]
Yeah, I was hoping that the aquatic expansion would have less fighting than on land, but fighting nonetheless.
I thought only squids and invertebrates had simple minds, meanwhile the stuff like Allen and Pluto are almost like the creatures of the land...They have fully-functional minds and they're actually smart...Meanwhile the squid just goes where it has to go...
"GET BACK HERE, YOU FOUL PIECE OF FILTHY BIRD RECTUM," Vulture threatens to kill Drift, to no avail, because he, Lucious, and Rover are already making a trek to the Sea of Something or wherever Jaigantic wants them to go.
So now the group was reduced to six(Adder, Cinder, Stalagmite, Wraak, Exedra, and Randall) plus The Great Bandit. Cool.
Nothing like walking out of a battle as your friends suffer.
"I could use a break as well...But I don't have it as easy as Drift because everybody hates the Dilophosaurus--" Adder is punched by Vulture mid-sentence.
"Yeah, well, you know what, Garter Snake, or whatever the fuck your name is? My species is hated too. And I don't complain. I use that hatred to kill my enemies!"
The two circle each other. It's basically the battle of two edgelords; one is a depressed nihilistic teenager who has six/seven people to support him, the other is a sadistic Austroraptor who has a Clan to help him in combat.
One Chasmosaurus steps forward. "Howdy, Exedra."
The Triceratops and Chasmosaurus square up as well. Eventually everybody pairs up; The Great Bandit gets one, Exedra gets one of his own, Stalagmite gets the third one, Randall and Cinder get the last one, and Adder, Wraak, and Vulture are together.
And with that the rumble begins, with everyone dogpiling on each other. The Clan always dominates and stomps their faces. Vulture kicks Adder up against a tree. He then drenches Adder in oil, then rips at Adder's face. "I honestly thought you would be more of a challenge than this...But I guess I can't blame myself. Just by looking at you I can see that underneath your weak exterior you're even weaker on the inside."
He lights a fire. "Nice and hot. This won't take a second."
Vulture steps on Adder's neck and prepares to set him on fire. "Don't worry...This will only hurt a lot!"
What is Vulture doing with the fire, like, is he holding a lighted stick or what?
"Lomy, Makto, check if there are any more around, we'll burry the corpses" - said Pluto.
They were attacked by fifteen Rebels, seven Plesiosaurs and eight Megalodons. They killed them all, but not without sacrifices - Core and Parp from Ret's Flock and Mira, Leric and Groul from Pluto's Schooner.
"We are almost there, we should not stop" - said Pluto after the burial for their warriors and before suset they arrived at Vulkaan Eiland's Outlaw base camp.
The first thing Allen does the next day is slip out of Don Morris's house. He swims over to Vulkaan Eiland, where he met with his fellow Rebels. He only said he wasn't involved with them because he didn't want to get kicked out of the house by Morris.
There was the Trinacomerium and Geosaurus from last night, in addition to a few Protostegas, a lot of Edestus, two biolumniscent squids, a Dunkleosteus, three Liopleurodons, two Ammonites, and an Opthalmosaurus. They stand their ground when they see the approaching Outlaws.
I will introduce my own Frigate Leader a few hours from now.
Wraak jumped and kicked Vulture in the hand. The Austroraptor droped the torch on the ground withoit lighing up Adder. He bit Wraak, who jumped on top of his head and without success tried to pierce his eyes.
"You little piece of shit! Get off and fight!"
"Haha, not gonna happen, bitch" - said Adder, while punching him in the face. - "Wraak, if you ganna do anything with his eyes, do it now!"
The Outlaws outnumber the Rebels by a vast margin; I think before I said it was 7:1. Even if we kill a hundred Oitlaws, they will be easily replaced. That's why Bonesaw and Old One Eye don't care for their minions; they're easily replaceable.
I will lay off on the Outlaws for some time and focus a bit more on the Rebels. Maybe for a Rift day or a Rift week we focus a bit more on the interactions and relationships between the Rebels; I'm already trying to build a small one between Adder and Cinder. But this will all happen the next Rift day, after on this Rift day I do a little something with a few of my characters.
Wraak kicks Vulture off of him. Vulture begins to walk backwards, and keeps glaring at Wraak and Adder. He begins to recite a story that has become like a legend or a dream to the Outlaws.
"Long, long ago...Two races lived on this planet: the humans and animals. One day, a war began. It was World War III...The Gene Bombs wiped out all life on the planet and returned it to its unspoiled beginnings."
He starts walking in a circle.
"The new planet began once more as the past, doomed to suffer and serve the same path it had taken before; doomed to suffer and serve the next World War III; doomed to suffer and serve the Gene Bombs; doomed to suffer and serve its own suffering and serving self once more. But have you considered an alternate world, except you don't exist?"
"That's what we want now. We will murder your leaders. We will decimate your populations. We will fight for the one true world. And we will win. Once we are all dead...Old One Eye and the spirits of our deaths shall recreate the world again...and he shall rule over it as a god. Do not attempt to resist; the skulls shall prove your ideals wrong and you will die. And you...Viper, Mamba, Garter Snake, Adder, Emo Boy, Zor, whatever you are...if I see you again...I will kill you. I will kill you just like I did your father...We burned him at the stake, spilled his guts, removed his crests, hung his corpse outside of Bonesaw's lair, and ripped his eyes from his sockets, not necessarily in that order. Next time we meet...Adder...I will murder him. All while you can only watch...And next...I will murder your friends! And your allies! And your world, all while you can do nothing about it! Learn to grow a backbone and stab your kind in the back. It makes the grass grow, it makes the world spin, it moves time forward! Betrayal is only a natural thing, you should know that."
With that Vulture walks off into the dust, setting the forest on fire and burning up whatever gets in his way.
Being the absolute embodiment of hyperdeath throughout the Rift, he licks his claws. Nothing like sharpening and licking your knives after a good battle so then you can slaughter more opposition. He looks around at the bloody, flaming battlefield, comparing them all to him.
He takes a good look at himself. He didn't kill only for food, not only for pleasure, not only for instinct. But for chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. And that makes me feel great.
One swipe of his fingers can disembowel a Styracosaurus. One swipe of his toes can puncture thick hides. One swipe of his jaws can rip flesh from bone. Yes, he was legitimately batshit insane, and good at everything, and stronger than his opponents. It is a wonder why he doesn't just go slaughter Old One Eye already.
His army gathers next to him and start licking their claws as well. The Angered Deathbringer, the Infected Bloodgorger, the Corrupted Corpsecrusher, the Hungering Fleshripper, and the Forsaken Bloodwing. All mindless, all chaos(I need to stop typing so fast and end up writing "chaps"), all evil, all death in dinosaur form. An Austroraptor leading an army consisting of a Deltadromeus, a Titanoceratops, a Dacentrurus, a Monolophosaurus, and a Dsungaripterus can and will slaughter anybody who gets in their way. He looks at his army; the Deltadromeus, the Deathbringer, had half his face ripped off from a clash with Adder. The Titanoceratops was missing a horn from his jousts with Exedra and his ceratopsian kin. The Dacentrurus had coated all of his spikes with hot metal. The Monolophosaurus wore a massive horn instead of a crest. The Dsungaripterus's beak was hideously deformed and mashed into an axe. All of them, standing side by side, ready to conquer the Rebels.
Later...A few days later...They would kill them all.
"Go. Return to Mount Luckyone, my beasts. Find General Bonesaw...AND KILL HIM."
They stomp off.
Soon Vulture sees that a young Edmontosaurus walks up to him. "Oh, hello. What's your name, little child?"
"Let's be friends!"
Vulture looks at the Edmontosaurus sadly. "I...I'm afraid that's not possible. Because..."
He jumps on the Edmontosaurus's face and rips it off. It screams, summoning its parents to the scene.
"YOU'RE GOING TO DIE!"
And sure enough after he devoured the Edmontosaurus's face he devoured the heart. He throws the parents onto the ground and squeezes the blood out of their organs, then breaking every bone in their body.
"I will leave all three of you here. I'm not that hungry. Oh well. Nothing like promoting chaos in the landmasses."
He walks back to Mount Kratakota to kill Bonesaw.
Bonesaw is sleeping inside his lair when the six enter the den. "In the name of chaos, General Bonesaw...You will promote me. You are under arrest, and promote me to General."
"DON'T 'WHY!?' ME, YOU PATHETIC SLUG! I AM YOUR TRUE MASTER, AND YOU SHALL ACCEPT THAT. I AM THE ONLY DIVINE GOD, I AM THE STRONGEST ONE HERE, YOU KNOW THAT! NOW YOU WILL EITHER COMPLY WITH US AND DIE, OR YOU DIE AND I MAKE MYSELF GENERAL!"
"THAT WON'T HAPPEN!"
"YOU TRY AND DEFY ME!"
And with that Vulture jumps on Bonesaw's face, crawling around wherever he can. Bonesaw attempts to throw Vulture off, but Vulture thinks otherwise.
Eventually he comes up with an idea.
"Here. Kill me."
He jumps right into Bonesaw's mouth and shoves himself down his esophagus. He rips Bonesaw's throat from the inside out and digs through Bonesaw's brain, into the brain, devouring the brain...
Bonesaw's temple bursts, and Vulture jumps out. "HAND ME THE OIL!"
They throw him some oil, and Vulture digs back into Bonesaw, spreading the oil around. He sets Bonesaw's body on fire, and jumps out.
Bonesaw's eyes begin to shoot flames, and he spits sparks and fire from his jaws. His teeth fall from their places, his chest splits open, and his limbs fall off one by one. Eventually Bonesaw falls, his limbless corpse spitting fire from every orfice.
"So uncivilized...Let's inform him."
Vulture crawls to Old One Eye's lair. "General Bonesaw...Is dead. I saw him get killed by the Rebels...We salvaged his flaming and bloody body. I took his place as General."
"Brilliant. You are now General Vulture in our Outlaw empire.
Vulture kneels. "What is thy bidding, my master?"
"Tonight, find the Rebels. Hunt down the Commander. Retreat. I'm pairing you up with Gloom. You know the drill."
Everyone turns around and walks back to the Ruined Castle.
It is about 5:00 PM by the time the Rebels get back home, and the meeting was scheduled for about 6. Everyone gets ready for the discussions between the Rebel leaders and subordinates that would ensue.
The Great Bandit stays off to the side, trying not to cause any conflict between him and the Rebels.
"Okay, so are we all ready? Lucious, Rover, and Drift aren't going...Stalagmite and Randall are here, Wraak and Exedra are here, we're bringing The Great Bandit just for the hell of it, and...Adder?"
Nobody can find Adder.
Adder slips out of the shadows, almost like he was walking through the wall. "It's showtime."
With that everyone left the Ruined Castle and marched over to the Swamp.
Hundreds of Rebels sit in the audience in tense anticipation. They know that they have been holding off the Outlaws fairly well. Suddenly Adder steps back; he sees a Monolophosaurus in the trees.
He blinks. It appears again in another tree. Another blink, and it's gone.
Cinder looks at Adder.
"I think I'm seeing things..."
"It's fine, you may have tended up a lot though. Relax. A shame Lucious, Rover, and Drift can't be here."
The meeting begins. Commander Yellow Jacket walks down the aisle; a yellow Edmontosaurus with green gashes and a sharp beak. Next to him is Major Batterhull, a red Scutellosaurus. Behind both of them are Fire Tooth, Thorn Tail, and Wind Talon, an Aucasaurus, Shunosaurus, and Tropeognathus respectively. These three lead different divisions of Rebels; our characters serve under Thorn Tail.
Yellow Jacket begins his speech. But unbeknownst to anybody in the audience, a figure slips up behind him. "Sweet dreams in Hell...Bastard. Send me a postcard!"
With that the figure jumps out and latches on Yellow Jacket's face. The Rebels rise to help him, but eleven Monolophosaurus jump out from the trees and attack the crowd. Dozens of Rebels are murdered.
Major Batterhull attempts to knock the figure off, but Gloom immediately runs in and skins Batterhull's arms to the bone. She then slits his throat, spilling his blood. She then runs off. The figure on Yellow Jacket's face jumps off, revealing itself to be no other than Vulture. He kicks Yellow Jacket to the ground and stomps on his skull, then ripping out his tongue. He would do more, but there is no time, so instead Vulture runs off into the distance with Gloom.
"Stop them! Stalagmite, Exedra, I think you should stay back and check on Yellow Jacket. We're going to hunt down those two assassins!"
Adder, Cinder, Randall, Wraak, and The Great Bandit charge out of the area at a dead man's run. Everything slips in and out of the astral plane, and nobody can concentrate; Randall keeps smashing every tree in his way, Cinder forgets she can fly, and Adder can't even run in a straight line.
Exedra nods and runs over to Yellow Jacket. His tongue was ripped off and on the ground, he had horrible scratches on his face.
"Stal, do you think he would live?" - said Exedra.
Stalagmite didn't say anything, both just stared at the Commander.
Don't worry, Helix, Yellow Jacket is left to your mercy...if you have any...
Wraak was running like crazy. He was used to long distance runs, but wasn't a good runner and wasn't able to maintain good speed for too long, but he wasn't lagging behind either.
"They are probably hiding somewhere...or..." - he thought. He saw that the others couldn't think much and said - "Cinder, go over the trees and try to see if they are ahead or behind us. I'll go through the trees' crowns to see if they're hiding there!"
He did his part and after a few trees he saw Gloom running against him. She saw him too and Wraak was able to knock her down of the tree's crown. He was jumping down when he heard Cinder shout "I saw Vulture! He is behind us!"
Helix, is your Frigate Captain going to be the leader of the Vulkaan Eiland region or not?
Yellow Jacket looks up at the two Rebels. He nods, and the two don't respond. He dies. No flashiness or anything. He just dies.
If they had just nodded, then maybe Yellow Jacket would have understood that the Rebels and the world weren't doomed. He would have known that there would be hope, that there could be a good future. But in the end they were both too powerless to do even that.
"THERE THEY ARE! ARREST THEIR ASSES!"
Vulture escapes on a Parasaurolophus, and retreats to the West. Gloom and her posse of Monolophosaurus and Camarasaurus fell trees, creating a ring that traps the Rebels.
"Whoa, whoa, hey! Time out! What do we have here! Oh! Ahuhuhuhuh...Isn't it Adder and his Rebel friends! Except there's even less now, for some reason. Who would think they would follow us out here? And want to know something, if this is really going down? I captured Kragok, sliced off his crests, dried his corpse outside of Bonesaw's lair! I sent the Clan to murder Cinder's father...I executed Radnad, and I helped Vulture kill Bonesaw! Now on my long list of victims...You will be next!"
The Frigate Captain will not be leader of Vulkaan Island. It is currently unclaimed and anybody can take it.
I just looked up the running capability of Velociraptor, and apparently there's no way Wraak could outspeed Adder or The Great Bandit. Dromaeosaurids were one of the worst runners on the planet, as they could only hope to run in short sprints, and they're not even overwhelmingly fast, either.
Oh, well, editing again. I didn't think that dinosaurs who probably had to chase prey for long distances weren't able to run!
"OK, that's it! Move your asses out of here so we don't have to do it ourself!" - Wraak was very frustrated, he didn't expect to be chased by Outlaws every single minute when he joined the Rebels - "I didn't sign up for this shit!" (What movie is this phrase from?)
"Cool down, little one!" - said Randall. - "Adder" - he whispered, - "what do we do now?"
"Are you able to push the trees to the side?"
"Probably. Should we fight or flee?"
"Flee. We don't have a chance agains so many of them."
Pluto looked around the Vulkaan Eiland's base camp. The Outlaws there weren't in good shape.
"I'm Captain Pluto of 21st Schooner from his Terror's fleet. Report!"
"Sir, we were attacked...many times this week. The Rebels...are getting stronger!" - said one really bad scarred Itchy.
"Who is your leader?"
"Captain Tremor died today by his wounds. We don't have anyone to replace him with." - said one Plesiosaurus.
"I was given orders from Captain Recam of 4th Frigate to patrol the region. Looks like you should join me and my support! Trik, take the Mosasauruses, Ret, take the Itchys and the Plesiosauruses, I'll get the rest."
And that way Trik ended up with ten Mosasauruses behind him, Ret with sixteen Itchys and three Plesiosaurs and Pluto with two teenage Spinosaurs and three adult Parahelicoprions. After that, they went to sleep.
The Rebels run all the way back to the Ruined Castle, but Gloom silently stalks them.
Once they all sleep its back to normal; Cinder and Adder sleep in the same branch, Stalagmite Exedra, and Randall sleep on the ground, Wraak sleeps in the highest branch, and The Great Bandit sleeps at the lowest branch.
Gloom discovers them, and jumps high into the branch with Cinder and Adder. She prepares the slice off Cinder's head, but Adder suddenly wakes up and shoves Gloom off of the branch. She falls ten feet to the ground, where everybody is alerted and wakes up. The Great Bandit jumps down as well.
Gloom charges forward, attempting to devour Cinder. "I will have you head if it is the last thing I do!"
"Just running to Cinder will be the last thing you do."
The Great Bandit trips Gloom, who is sent flying into Adder's foot. Adder kicks Gloom back to The Great Bandit, and he rips off her skin, devolving her into a bloody mass on the ground.
"You...You know you can't defeat us. The Skulls...Will destroy us all...And what will you do anyways? Go back to Vulture with my skull in my hand!?"
"No, I'll do even worse!"
With that Gloom's six Proceratosaurus drop into the area. They pull her along, they drag her into the dirt, they pull her towards their hell. She attempts to fight back, but is no match for six. These seven sins disappear down in the depths of Tartarus, never to be seen again, where they all will suffer incurable punishment. Gloom is no more in this Rift.
"I have killed your archnemisis," The Great Bandit states at the other Rebels. "I have done you favors, I have tried to redeem myself, I have killed my own kind alongside you. Is that not enough for me to join you as a fighter for peace? Is it not enough for me to join you to restore the Rift to its pristine condition?"
"Hrr..." - Exedra rumbled. - "Didn't you heard the story I told you about Colt? I don't trust the ones who for whatever reason were on the enemy's side! Neither should anyone else, if they don't want their back stabbed!
"Exedra, just stop! Alright? Stop!" - said Wraak. - "The Bandit saved us from death! Be a little thankful!"
"That doesn't mean we should trust him! He killed his own kind, blah, blah, blah! If he wants to kill us, nothing will stop him! NOTHING!"
"Yes, I knew about Colt. That traitor...I had nothing to do with him."
He jumps into the lowest branch on the tree, only to fall back onto the ground. He backs up into the bloody trail left behind by Gloom's body.
"Yes, I've killed Lena. I've killed Prometheus, I've killed Two-Bit, I've killed Rash, I've killed dozens, if not hundreds, of Rebels. But that doesn't mean anything anymore. Can you not see through my skin and see the difference between a man true to his heart like me and a traitor to his friends like Colt?"
(Continue the argument below, I'm skipping to the next day after whatever happens. For continuity reasons The Great Bandit will not be mentioned here.)
They bury Yellow Jacket and Batterhull in the graveyard located in front of the Ruined Castle. In front of the dead man's cave where Extinction was devoured. The Rebels bury their dead bodies next to the souls of the other casualties of the endless apocalypse...
There are the gravestones, sitting left to right, in a line, signifying the corpses of the dead. Sledge the Shunosaurus, Impaler the Triceratops, Swift Foot the Gallimimus, Ancile the Stegosaurus, Kurt the Kaprosuchus, Alpha the Deinonychus, Shadow the Velociraptor, Bertha the Tenontosaurus, Oni the Utahraptor, Trey the Dimorphodon, Lena the Therizinosaurus, Butch the Magyarosaurus, Radnad the Corythosaurus...
They read the messages on the graveyards:
"Hold my fermented fruit and watch this, Impaler."
"He's dead, Swift Foot."
"Why did they have to die yesterday..."
"I long for death's cold embrace..."
"You've just murdered an old man, how does that make you feel?"
"I'm dying for my family."
"Make sure my son survives and becomes a great fighter..."
"Why did it have to be Proceratosaurus?"
"Grim! Don't betray me now!"
"A father to his men."
"Rest in pieces."
When Yellow Jacket and Batterhull are buried in the dirt, there is no message. Nothing. They are but stones with the names "Yellow Jacket" and "Batterhull" scratched into them. The stones are planted into the ground, and the two leaders' bodies are laid in the holes.
There is no talking on the way back. Everyone leaves the graveyard in silence; the three faction leaders are mortally wounded, their leader is dead. There is no hope in this world. There is no release in this world. There is no end in this world.
"Colt was also true to us all... that's what we were thinking, at least. He was true to the day he betrayed us and killed many of ours, and before that he killed Outlaw after Outlaw, some of them great commanders, so he could get to us. I am not trusting you, Midas, I never will" - said Exedra with a cold, threatening tone in his voice.
"Exedra, I know you have your reasons not to trust him, all of us have, even me. But I think we should give him a chance" - said Wraak.
"The Velociraptor is right. If you are so paranoid about me being a betrayer, why not leave a night guard?" - asked The Great Bandit.
"You could easily kill anyone who stands in your way to completing the mission General Bonesaw gave you. You play on his whistle. You forever will" - Exedra wasn't giving up.
"Fine. I am not able to convince you but I think the others are more likely to accept an ally, right?"
The Great Bandit looks at the characters I own(I'M SORRY I JUST BROKE THE FOURTH WALL I'M GONNA YELL AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH okay I'm done). Cinder smiles and waves, while Stalagmite and Randall look at each other, nod, then look at The Great Bandit and nod again.
Adder slinks off to the side. "Um, Adder? Are you going to let him live with us?"
"Wha-ju-The fu-Sh-shi-a-h-j-slippin' diggin' ding-a-dong-a-long-WHAT!? You--You want me to live with him!? I-I-I-I don't want to do that!"
A Troodon Outlaw runs up to The Great Bandit. "You have to die now!" He jumps at Exedra.
"Fuck off." The Great Bandit kicks the Troodon into the ditch, where there is a very audible and disgusting squelch sound.
"You know what? You're right. I think I can give him a chance," Adder smirks for the first time in a while.
Well, back to after Yellow Jacket's funeral. By the way, I moved Stalagmite and Randall into secondary characters so I could accomodate a few more major characters(currently have three: Adder, Cinder, and Allen).
Adder eats an Asutroraptor egg. "A shitty source of food...For shitty people like me..."
Everyone eats everything they can, due to not eating anything for the past two days. They were already starving prior to the beginning of this new RP(WELL THERE I GO BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL AGAIN), why must they always suffer this, all they do is exist, and yet the Outlaws always target them in particular...
"So, where's Lucious?" Cinder looks up from her meal and sees nobody. At least they're having fun, wherever they are. They don't have to deal with a crapsack world like we do.
"Nowhere in particular. Hopefully not dead. I think the main reason why we even moved here in the first place was because Drift wanted to make a pilgrimage to the Ruined Castle. Maybe he wants to sacrifice me to the Goddamned Bats."
As they finish eating, they see some of their ally Rebels enter their territory.(Dammit, Wolf, I was making a character named Colt. Oh well.) There is Sobek the Geosternibergia, a former Outlaw that was reformed into a loyal Rebel. There is Meleoron the Staurikosaurus, a Staurikosaurus with a metric crapton of anxiety. There is Hammerhead, a nihilistic Linheraptor, and a very old Ampleosaurus with an iron tail named...Johnny.
"How have you guys been?" Cinder recognizes them as fellow Rebels who also serve under Thorn Tail.
"Okay, I guess," Johhny says in a sarcastic tone. "No, we're absolutely horrible. Creeper chased us all the way here, he's been working with Vulture recently. Hey, have I told you that Bonesaw died and Vulture took his place..."
"I knew that," Adder interrupts. "Gloom boasted about it before we killed her last night."
"Oh dear..." Hammerhead groans. "Somebody must have screwed up royally, because now Thorn Tail is on the verge of death and Yellow Jacket is dead, Batterhull is also dead, Fire Tooth hates our guts, and Wind Talon is an overall jerk, I feel only Thorn Tail could possibly take Yellow Jacket's place as leader..."
"What's the use of feeling that Thorn Tail will survive and take over as leader? Nobody could possibly rally the hundreds of us together to rise against the Outlaws. Only the Reaper ends up winning in the end," Adder states.
"Vulture retreated on a Parasaurolophus to somewhere. He said he would return with a mob greater than any before, I think? He didn't say much after he assassinated Yellow Jacket."
"The world hates our guts," Hammerhead adds.
Sobek, the former Outlaw, steps forward. "Have any of you seen Bolona, because she killed my family last night. Even I, a former Outlaw, have a family. As I attended the meeting she killed my children and my wife to survive the shock of that huge fight two days ago."
"Last time I saw her she was running away with two Gallimimus after I killed Moloc," Randall states helpfully.
"And I was singing a song about how Dilophosaurus is an--"
He gets interrupted again, this time by Meleoron talking as fast as he can. "Um, has anybody come across Mandible? He's been claiming lives like the Grim Reaper and crushing our territory."
"When did the Rebels ever have territory? Everything's been sent to the Outlaws. They've been stealing land, food, water, and animals from our ecosystem."
Meleoron eats a fly. "We should find out soon. I think Mandible and Bolona have scheduled a rumble with us several days from now. I got this information by sneaking into the Outlaw homeland(Mount Kratakota) while the assassination took place."
"Thanks, guys. You can stay a bit longer, if you want."
"No, we can't. Creeper is on our tails, he is hunting us down wherever we run. There seems to be an invasion in the seas recently, and there are more Coelurus appearing around here...The appearance of Coelurus is never a good thing."
Vulture marches through the Shadowlands while humming "Kidnap the Sandy Claus." He walks by massive skeletons, one of which is a Quetzalcoatlus.
It's Eagle. The last Quetzalcoatlus. They are but extinct.
He keeps walking and observes that a lot of Ceratosaurus and Tarbosaurus are gathering by the edges of the valley. Some Camarasaurus, Spinosaurus, Chasmosaurus, Ophiacodons, Monolophosaurus, Coelurus, and Boreopterus, too. He smirks and sees that they are his ally Outlaws.
"Alright, everybody! Shut your ass-flapping mouths and listen up! We! Will destroy the Rebels! We shall sneak into..."
The Outlaws stomp to Vulture's side, and join him alongside his gallery of five half-dead abominations. "Well, that was so easy I almost feel guilty."
"Are you asking for me, Sobek?" - said Bolona as she was entering the graveyard. All the Rebels looked at her viciously and prepared to fight off a possible posse. But she was alone. - "I won't spill your blood in a sacred place like this. Neither should you."
"What are you doing here? Is this some kind of trick?" - asked Exedra.
"I am visiting my father's grave. I don't see any trick in that" - answered Bolona. - "Wraak, come if you want."
"Don't do this, Wraak, she is going to kill you" - said Sobek.
"I won't spill my family's blood on my father's grave, Sobek, you wouldn't too!"
Wraak got closer to Shadow's grave. This is what was written on it:
You won't forget me, you should avenge me.
To Yellow Jacket,
dear battle friend,
who tortured me to death,
Shadow the Velociraptor
Read Helix's post below and then the follow-up, which is what I have written here:
"Well, Shadow is avenged. Yellow Jacket died painfuly enough" - said Wraak after two minutes fo complete silence.
The minimalist message is carved onto Shadow's gravestone:
my friend yellow jacket...
go to hell.
That's all. No death note, no "Goodbye, cruel world!", no essay, no speech. Just "go to hell."
"No...Why did my father have to die...What did Yellow Jacket have to do with this...Why must my life fall apart...Next thing I know Ela and Rey will be killed by the Outlaws..."
"I will tell you what happened, little one. One day...Shadow was knocked into a coma. The animalistic abomination we know as Grim slapped him, breaking his bones, and he sent Shadow's own army after him. One day, an autumn day, Shadow recovered, at the cost of gaining amnesia. He forgot about me, that he had children, that you existed. He felt that life had no meaning. He became suicidal...And recalled that the evil forces had put him into slumber, where he floated aimlessly in the void, riding with the lost souls of the night.
"He joined the Rebels with what little strength he had left. Shadow was a brilliant fighter. One day, however, he was seen helping Colt the Kentrosaurus and Sobek to kill Exedra's gang of Rebels. He and Sobek escaped, never to be seen for quite a while, as Colt was brutally slaughtered at the hands of Exedra, Lucious, and Stalagmite. This witch you call Adder...and his goth girlfriend...They reported to Yellow Jacket about the incident.
"Yellow Jacket was shocked, seeing that one of his strongest commanders had massacred one of his own kind. Not long after this happened, the war came. Ancile died. Hope died. Your mother and aunts and uncles died. Shadow didn't know what to do; his family and life were crumbling at the seams around him.
"He joined the Outlaws...He became a well-known commander. One day, at the Battle of the Granite Quarry, Shadow was defeated in combat by Major Batterhull. Batterhull carried Shadow's unconscious body to Yellow Jacket, who interrogated him about betraying the Rebels. After this, he died. Yellow Jacket drove his fist through Shadow's brain, and hatred through the Outlaws, and ripped joy from the world. I have never looked at Yellow Jacket the same since.
"This is why I joined the Outlaws. I did not believe in the Perfect World. I did not believe in the Future. All I wanted was revenge and wrath...All I wanted was blood...I did not think about how you were alive...I got in an argument with your uncle Rey. Rey forced me out of his family, and he protected you from the Outlaws. He robbed you of your childhood, locking you up inside that one cave, sculpting you into this disgrace, filled to the brim with anger at nothing and never bothering to socialize."
She stopped speaking and looked up. Sobek was staring ahead, recalling the entire tale. It was true. All of it. He had assisted Colt in killing Exedra's friends, he did watch Shadow get defeated by Major Batterhull, he could hear Shadow being killed by Yellow Jacket.
Meleoron's eye twitches and he eats another bug. Johnny and Hammerhead shake their heads in disgrace. Randall stares in disbelief, Stalagmite stands his ground and gets defensive, Exedra does not react, Cinder starts crying, and Adder snarls, hoots, and hisses, preparing to kill Wraak if necessary.
(Skip to after Bolona leaves. Wow, after all that buildup, Bolona just leaving was pretty anticlimactic.)
All of the Rebels stare at Wraak. Adder gets up close and jabs a finger at Wraak. "You...you...you...you...YOU...YOU ABSOLUTE FOOL! How could you possibly let your aunt reveal your grandfather's backstory!? If you weren't in the same Rebel division as me, or if I hadn't depended on you for survival, or if I hadn't been friends with you at all, I would have killed you right now! You want that!? YOU WANT ME TO SLIT YOUR THROAT THE SAME WAY I DID YOUR FRIEND AXE THE JURAVENATOR!? YOU WANT ME TO KILL YOU AND MAKE SURE YOUR SOUL NEVER FINDS A BODY TO INHABIT!? YOU WANT ME TO STITCH YOUR MOUTH AND THROAT CLOSED SO YOU CAN NEVER TALK AGAIN!?"
"I want to know my family's story. That won't change my point of view. My grandfather turned to the Outlaws for whatever reason he had. From I heard he was probably crazy. That my grandfather and aunt are Outlaws won't stop me from being a Rebel" - said Wraak. He was still shocked from the story and talked really quiet.
Adder calms down. "My family was torn to pieces by the war as well...My father murdered my mother, and he left me for dead. Half a year later he came back, saying we would have to run away, but he was killed. I spent the next few years with the Baryonyx Clan...Vicious barbarians...Having mercy for none and revelling in death...
"But I think I know some things about your family. All I know...One day...the Baryonyx Clan forced me to kill a Stegosaurus with one eye and three spikes. I spared him, and he told me his name was Ancile. He told me a story...The story about a strange Deinonychus, the story about a Megalania sacrificing himself for the sake of his Arthropleura brother, the story of a Machairoceratops and Titanosaurus searching for the rest of their kind, the story of a Velociraptor who lost his family...He was a good man. But there were things out of his control...He took the nlame for it. He never recovered from his misanthropic state. He was the misanthrope, the malcontent, the miser. He was Shadow. I knew there were good things inside of Shadow, but he died known for one thing; his anger. It runs in his family; Resseona was very hot-tempered, Colossal and Telemolon seemed to be fueled by gluttony and envy, Bolona fights for hatred, even Rey is very temperemental. It's not your fault, Wraak, but it's not your grandfather's fault either. It's nobody's fault...And yet it feels like somebody orchestrates this..."
"I remeber that name...Ancile...I think Rey have been telling me about him. Anyways, you are right. It's in my family's blood to be hot tempered and angry. I am actually the calmest from Shadow's line. My mother said it's because of the lucky poison messing with my genes and feelings. She didn't want me to get angry. She though I'll end up like my father" - said Wraak with nostalgic tone.
"Your father?" - asked Adder.
"He was a lucky bitten - one of the many from our pack, because we lived close to the Ruined Castle. When he was bitten and he realised that he wasn't going to die he was very happy. But one day his mother and father were killed by The Goddamned Bats. He was anraged. In a few days his feathers became gray. He lost his mind and was killed by the bats" - said Wraak. - "I will always remember his look - like his mind had snapped out of reality. Two years later my mother and my uncles, except for Rey, were killed by the bats too. Me and my sister lived with him for a few years. It's like someone had cursed my family."
"Dilophosaurus doesn't have it any better. Our specie sis widely hated for reasons unknown, but it may be in particular to how many casualties in the Great War several years back were caused by Dilophosaurs. From that point on we have been seen as symbols of death. Maybe that's why everybody tries to kill me."
"So...Uh...Do you...uh, want to go on vacation somewhere so the Outlaws don't find us?"
"Sounds cool! Well recover from all the freaking beating we were served, we'll eat as much as we want!" - said Wraak excited.
"Yeah, that'd be awesome!" - added Exedra.
"So, where should we go?" - asked Randall.
"I'll go for the beaches north of the Lowlands" - suggested Exedra.
"Hm, yeah, sounds great!" - Wraak said.
Making a little bit more details around the Lowlands area. Just small edits so it doesn't look that...strange and dead. I won't add any locations, I'll just make one of the beaches not that flat and will make some mountains around the Lowlands
Everyone packs up whatever they want to bring and makes a very long trip to the Lowlands. It takes them a whole day, and by the time they finally reach their destination it's the next morning.
"More flatslands. Which means more predators. And hence more Outlaws. I think. Yay."
Hopefully we don't get beaten up here.
In the Lowlands there are almost no trees. There are only ferns, and even then they are not very common. This is a nesting ground, where there are slightly more ferns and one or two trees. All you can see is dirt, laying on top of a mud field, rocks, mountains...
Two Argentinosaurus walk by in the background, followed by three Carnotaurus. No life at all otherwise.
"Well, there's always the beach and mountains to the north...But this is going to be our campsite. Riight next to these nests.
Adder climbs to a branch near the top. "This one is mine. Anybody not named Cinder is not allowed on this branch unless they want their throats ripped out of their necks."
"It's pretty good out here! The water is great, come on!" - said Wraak.
"OK" - Exedra stepped in the ocean and immediately when he felt the cool water around his legs moved a little bit further and sat. - "Ahhh...relaxing!"
Everyone got in the water and stayed there for an hour and a half. Then they stayed ashore a couple of hours, playing and doing stuff. After that they went to sleep - Exedra, Randall and Stalagmite layed on the ground, Adder and Cinder climbed on Johnny, Sobek stayed on the ground, Wraak, Hammerhead and Meleoron slept on Exedra and The Great Bandit couldn't fall asleep the whole night. Around midnight Wraak woke up and prepared to go for a walk, when he noticed The Great Bandit standing and watching the sea by himself.
"What's up Midas? You can't fall asleep?" - asked Wraak.
Damn. I could have seen this earlier; what if this wiki came in a free app that gives you notifications on your phone when somebody adds onto this?
"The sheer thought that even when we move here temporarily...The Outlaws could potentially be after us still. They will stop at nothing to hunt us down, me and Sobek especially. The armies march down the mountains and into the flats at unprecedented rates, they kill anybody who resists. I fear that one day they will discover us and execute us all on the spot..."
He holds out a relic. The relic is in the shape of a gear with sharp edges. "This is a relic I have taken with me on all of my explorations and executions. I stole it from the depths of Old One Eye's home and stored it away where nobody could find it. And for good reason; one day they could find this gear, the only gear in the world, the keystone from the past Earth. They could abuse it...To create cannons...To create pollution...To create guns...The world would go awry."
He paces back up to shore and sees that everyone moved position. Johnny moved a bit farther from the sleeping ground, Adder and Cinder climbed to the top of a dead tree, and Hammerhead...what?
Hammerhead lay in a pool of his own blood, doubled up and still. He had committed suicide. The Great Bandit could tell; he had jumped from the very top of the tree when nobody was looking. The blood keeps crawling around on the ground from an open gash, and it reached more...blood...
It reaches Sobek's body, who is mutilated beyond compare. His head lay in a limp pose, with his scalp removed, his beak sliced clean off the bone, his head turned inside out. One wing was broken at a 270 degree angle, the other was missing. Both of his legs are gone, and his body is completely hollow.
Adder stirs and sees Wraak. "While you were gone...The Deadly Duo and Bolona...They attacked us. We scared them off, but they killed Sobek, and Hammerhead committed suicide in a fit of grief and rage. They retreated far into the west, and I could not tell you anything other than that..."
The Great Bandit holds Adder up to his face. "We WILL kill the Outlaws! We're going to go off to the Sandstone Seas! I remember Bolona and her followers would be hanging out at the Granite Quarry or somewhere around that. She's gathered more, and they're stronger than ever." He pressed Adder's face against his. "We GOTTA WIN THIS FIGHT! FOR HAMMERHEAD AND SOBEK!"
Adder starts to sweat. "Too close, too close. Okay, okay. Holy fucking shit."
"We should take a few others with us."
Adder looks around and picks four. "Cinder, Wraak, Exedra, and Meleoron. I can trust the other three(Stalagmite, Randall, and Johnny) to not destroy our campsite while we're gone."
So they woke up Cinder, Wraak, Exedra, and Meleoron, saying they would have to hunt down the Outlaws in the Sandstone Seas. All six gathered what they needed and march to the Seas, in a march that takes them quite a while.
"Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos."(What movie is this from?)
General Vulture marches through the Mountains of Nothingness, rallying Outlaws as he moves. Behind him are a Tenontosaurus and Albertosaurus(will do their character introductions later). Their names are, respectively, Lieutenant Creeper and Colonel Mandible. Their army behind them consist of dozens, if not hundreds, strong. About half Ceratosaurus, many Coelurus, a Spinosaurus, three Camarasaurus, two entire rows of Ophiacodon and Boreopterus, the Deathbringer, the Bloodgorger, the Corpsecrusher, the Fleshripper, and the Bloodwing. All of them stomp through the west and to the Deserted Plains...
Thorn Tail, Fire Tooth, and Wind Talon have a discussion, bringing along their chief advisors: Ker the Pachycephalosaurus, Nix the Achillobator, and Silver Stone the Pterodastro. All of them argue, sometimes the arguments get physical. But Thorn Tail prevails over them both no matter what.
"Let it be done, then, that--"
General Vulture walks through the entrance at a slow pace. "Oh, isn't it the revered Master Hunter. What do you want?" The leaders mistaken Vulture for Hunter, a former character from the previous RP and a Rebel Leader who died one year ago, but the leaders don't know this.
Vulture says but one word. "Nothing."
He suddenly does a flip through the air and lands directly on Silver Stone and slices Ker, killing them both. The other four are startled and swing their weapons.
Vulture doesn't stop there. He kicks Nix through a tree and into the jaws of the army. Wind Talon backs up and attempts to slash at Vulture with his beak, but Vulture instead feeds Wind Talon a meter of Austroraptor; he shoves his arm down Wind Talon's throat and rips open his throat from the inside out.
The leader of the Flames, Fire Tooth cringes in sight at the sight of Vulture, shielding his eyes from the dragon's glare. The swords flash thrice; Tooth's legs and head fall to the ground.
Thorn Tail starts to panic. "The...Yellow Jacket is dead! You have killed our leaders...I thought you--would leave us in peace--"
Vulture kicks Thorn Tail in the face and burrows into Thorn Tail's bloody yet alive body, devouring him from inside. "My words were a bit mixed up. I said I would leave you in pieces."
BTW, did you get my reference, it was in a previous post: "I didn't sign up for this shit!". It may appear in many movies, but I think the one I am referencing is the most popular one.
"I think I know where Bolona is heading to!" - Wraak said. - "She probably is gathering followers in The Sandstone Seas. We have to stop her or we will have a mob of Velociraptors destroying everything in sight."
My computer just decided to stop updating me on the talk here, unfollowed, refollowed, see if that works for now.
Meanwhile, on some tropical beach, Drift, Lucious and Rover are seated, laid back on beach chairs, with sunnys on and a tropical coconut shake by their side. The sun, warming their skin, tanning it even. Lucious had to take regular dips into the water, the sun drys the skin very quickly.
A big wave, throws many fishes to shore "Dinner and a scene"
The reality of the scene is just them laying on the beach.
The sun, glisters through the water, the only light comming from the entrence of the cave pocket. The squid sits on of his tongues by the entrence to sence any comming prey. A shadow overcomes the cave, making it darker, and then it disappears and the figure enters the cave. A little Orange Plesiosaurus comes in, with darker stripes covering the body.
"See me, don't eat" states the little creature.
The squid pulls his tongues back "I see you, how be you?"
"Well, have you any meal?" the plesiosaurus shakes his head at the question, she was truly hungry.
With that the squid moves his collosal body over to reveal a nearly completely eaten corpse of a marin reptile, it was nearly picked to the bone, the pieces left to small for a giant squid. Small fish swam around it, feasting on the left overs. The plesiosaurus went into a frenzy, snapping and fish and taking bits of meat from the corpse.
BTW, did you get my reference, it was in a previous post: "I didn't sign up for this shit!".
Something's telling me that Samuel Jackson says this, but I'm not sure.
The Rebels arrive at the Sandstone Seas by the time dawn hits. Bolona and her followers climb down the hill into the field with the rising sun.
Allen and his friends observe the Outlaws taking over Vulkaan Island, but decide to attack them later when their numbers are much bigger. They swim all the way to the Coral Walls and claim it for their own.
"Heh, do you really think you can defeat us? You are only nine, and not a very good condition!" - said Bolona. Then, all of the sudden Exedra turned and started running. - "Why don't all of you run like him? You don't have a chance!"
"Bolona, stop it! You shouldn't fight on the side of the Outlaws! If they win the war, the world will be reset to one evil place - torture, pain, exhaustion!" - said Wraak.
"What The Outlaws believe I don't care, I want my revenge, Wraak, and I'll get it! Join me, Wraak, and we'll avenge our ancestors!"
"No...aaah!" - Wraak was grabbed by Caplo. The Pteranodon pecked him and he fell unconcious. Adder jumped and almost scratched Caplo's leg.
"Wraak!" - Exedra shouted from behind Bolona's posse. The ground started shaking. Ten Triceratopses were running towards the enemy. They clashed. Exedra got the first kill - Tiri's corpse was thrown in the air. He stomped a Velociraptor, pierced a Brontosaurus' skull. After him Lata was on the ground, being flattened by the other Triceratopses, ten of the Velociraptor were either stomped or on someone's horn. He heard a scream. A Triceratops from the enemy's side killed two of his, before being ripped apart. That happened with the other one too, he was able to kill three of his kind, and himself was killed by Adder. Cinder killed one of the Brontosauruses, Stalagmite took out two Velociraptors, Randall too. The last Brontosaurus was Exedra's kill. They were all blood-stained. The only survivor was Bolona.
"Well, you win! I didn't expect that from you, Splithorn! I really didn't!" - as she was saying that two Nyctosauruses picked her up. She was going to Granite Quarry to meet with Vulture. She lost her posse, but the desert was full of Velociraptors and if she trained them, it would give her great advantage.
"Is that what I think it is?" - said Pluto.
"It looks like a big group of Rebels, only they are so badly organized!" - answered Lily.
"We beat them all, but they will not stay back for long," The Great Bandit declares. "A Velociraptor leader must kill herself should her pack lose the battle; if she comes across any more Velociraptors and they know of her faiures, and yet she still does not die, they will do it for her."
They turn around and move back to basecamp in the Lowlands and take a rest. But right when they fall asleep...
A small gang of Mapusaurus Outlaws charge into the site. The group clashes, and after a one-hour battle they flee. But the battle is not without its consequences.
Meleoron is hung from a tree; while sporting his trademark stare, no less. They had ripped out his eyeballs, leaving behind empty black portals into the void. His mouth was fixed into a toothy grin, and his head was split perfectly in two. His arms and legs were sticks, shrivelled rods of skin and no bone or muscle. They blended in with the choked and starving roots of the tree, signifying that danger lurked. But the tree was too late; Meleoron was hung on its horns. Black ooze leaked out of Meleoron's eye sockets and his mouth sprays blood everywhere...
Johnny is missing an arm but will survive. Everyone else is alive and well.
"They killed Meleoron, too...Why must this always happen to us?"
Vulture sees Bolona running back and throws her against a rock. "I wanted you to kill the Rebels! I equip you with an extremely strong posse, I equip you with the strongest claws and horns, I gave you some of my breakfast, and you STILL disappoint me!"
Creeper and Mandible watch in a corner, observing the spectacle. Their army waits behind.
This is Bolona's camp; she moved here after the first posse was killed. And she is commanded to meet with Vulture here.
Vulture smirks and sees that Bolona is not the leader she looks like. "I'll give you one last chance at life...If you tell me the location of Adder."
So Vulture tries something else; he shows her his zoo.
Locked up are an Apatosaurus, two Chasmosaurus, a Brachylophosaurus, an Agustinia, a Shuvia, three Ornitholestes, five Arthropleuras, and a giant prehistoric ape. Vulture sends Creeper after the Apatosaurus; Creeper charges forwards and destroys the stome bars holding back the Apatosaurus in one headbutt.
Bolona's surviving followers step back. The army runs as far away as they can.
The Apatosaurus moves forwards. Vulture says one sentence. "Tarr...Attack."
The Apatosaurus is without mercy, being a mindless beast like Tomahawk. He swings his tail at a torch, setting the tar pits and cacti on fire. He then headbutts a cliff and slashes the fire, starting rockslides and killing everyone of the locked up animals and Bolona's followers. In fact, he destroyed everything except for Vulture, Bolona, Creeper, Mandible, the army of Vulture, and Tarr himself.
Tarr roars as a rock formation falls to the ground, creating an explosion of tar.
"Please! Stop! Fine! I'll tell you everything about Adder! Just spare me! Please!!!"
"I'll spare you all right. Just quit your whining, and you live."
"I only know they are heading to the Lowlands, I don't know where exactly."
"Good enough" - answered Vulture.
Wraak was dropped off at the Watering hole. After a few hours he woke up. Caplo was staring at him.
"You are awake. Good." - he said and continued to stare. Wraak looked at him. He waited until the pain in his head was gone. He jumped and bit the Pteranodon's throat, killing him. He recongnized where he was.
"Might as well visit Rey and Ela. I have a lot to tell them" - he thought.
He got closer to the cave. When he looked at the entrance, he froze. Everything was covered with fresh blood. Corpses of Dimorphodons where everywhere. He entered the cave. There, on the ceiling was hanging a body - Rey. Wraak stared in disbelief. He got out of the cave to serach for Ela. A trail of dead Dimorphodon marked the way she was running. After a few minutes he got to a clearing. There, on the ground was Ela, breathing heavily and bleeding. Wraak got closer to her. She looked at him.
"You...uhh...are here" - she said. The pain in her voice was easily recognizable. - "They...uhh...ki-killed...Rey..."
"Who did this?"
"He was..." - Ela coughed blood. - "...was an Austro...uhhh...Austroraptor...his name...his name was...Vulture..."
Ela took one last breath and died. Wraak stood there. One minute, two minutes, five minutes. He Got up and carried his sister's body to the cave. He carefuly put her in her corner where she slept. He did the same with Rey. After that he sealed the cave. In a rock in front of the blocked entrance he wrote:
If you read this, know that I am going to kill you,
I will kill you and all the Outlaws.
You cause destruction to our world,
I will avenge every single creature that has been killed by the Outlaws,
EVERY SINGLE ONE!
Remember that, Vulture, next time you kill someone's family.
He backed up. He stared at the rock the rest of the day, the whole night and the day after. By that time his feathers became dark grey, then lighter and lighter, before becoming silver. Wraak looked at his wings and carved out in the rock another word to his name - Silverwing. From that day on to the day of his death he was Wraak Silverwing. He got up. He walked to the beach and started running. For two nights and one day he got to the base camp, It was midnight and his feathers were shining on the moonlight. He got closer and closer...
I'll skip a few days with Wraak for obvious reasons.
