    Post 108
    Job Title:
    Demon's Call

    Rank:
    B Rank

    Player Requirements:
    2x C Rank or the equivalent (minimum)
    Maximum 4 Mages

    Job Requirements:
    7,500 Words Minimum
    10x Rolls Minimum

    Job Location:
    Hargeon Town

    Job Description:
    Located deep within the bowels of Hargeon, buried under time itself a door has recently been unearthed due to the chaos caused by the tentacle monster's attack on the port town of Hargeon... Behind this door is an entire world where crystals make up the bulk of the light sources, with the other source being lanterns, candles, braziers, and other forms of fire. Inside this world lives a strange form of being, clad in black with razor sharp teeth and terrible grins to show them off. These creatures have indoctrinated several humans, those too foolish to have left the door alone, and caused them to steal something precious from one of the more wealthy citizens of Hargeon who was lucky enough to be outside the disaster zone when the tentacles came crashing down.

    The one who had his item stolen has asked that any mage who desires fair pay for exploration, and possibly bloodshed galore delve into the depths of whatever hell lay beyond the door. Entering this door, you will have no prior knowledge of what lays inside unless you have an ability that would permit such a thing. The world you find, as described above, is filled with glowing crystals, glowing plants, and dark figures that dart in and out of your line of sight so quickly you can't track it... Nearby you see a stream of glowing water, along with several other streams equidistant from each other, all flowing in the same direction. If you follow the streams, you'll notice eventually that they all seem to be converging since they're all moving towards each other, but all still equidistant from each other... Eventually you come to a large stream that's shallow but wide where all the smaller ones converge leading into a cave system. This is where you'll begin encountering enemies as you're attacked from behind and every other directer, even below as you go deeper and deeper into the caves...

    Those who can sense demons will notice that these creatures are in fact demons. If for some reason a Demon Slayer can't sense these are demons, they'll notice that the demons are taken down much easier by them than any ally they have with them... The demons here take double damage from Holy/Purifying magic, as well as Holy Heal spells. Light magic does not have this effect unless it is Holy/Purifying light magic. ((These enemies do not have HP gauges. It is up to the RP'r to come up with a sensible fight for each enemy. Any references to blocking does not require the use of a block dice, it simply means the RP'r is being told that the creature will block some attacks. If you roll a boss it is counted as 2x Strong. The boss will automatically spawn at any point you want after you roll 10 dice.))

    Enemies:
    Weak: Demon
    A very large creature, standing 30 feet with 10 foot wide shoulders. Its arms are as thick as tree trunks, and its claws are a foot long. It doesn't seem particularly intelligent, but it does known how to swing its arms with a high degree of accuracy. It has moderate (20mph) speed, and isn't too keen on blocking attacks. Countering all its negatives, this guy is extremely durable...

    Normal: Demon
    This one's only fifteen feet tall with four foot wide shoulders. They're faster than the other one, better at fighting too. This type dodges your attacks and blocks, unlike the larger version, and will even display a degree of unholy/corruption magic that's non-elemental. This magic can be consumed by God Slayers (all types). This creature is twice as fast as the larger version, and has just a bit more durability than it does. This creature will use its claws, and a strange type of jagged bladed weapon...

    Strong: Demon
    This one is a bit smaller at 10 feet tall... It won't attack you initially, and while fighting it none of the others will attack you. You'll be constantly hearing whispers in your head, hundreds upon thousands of them all trying to pull you into insanity... While fighting, this creature has more speed than the "Normal" demon (60mph) and twice the durability. It can use a variety of magic, but nothing too advanced. The weapons this one uses are its claws and a sharp sword that it seems to be adept at using...


    ~~End of the Line~~
    Entering a massive chamber, the sound of drums can be heard... lining the walls are hundreds of demons of varying sizes... Many of them are small, impish looking things with sticks in their hands that are being used to slam the drums. Others are a mix of the ones previously fought... and in the middle of this chamber is a six foot tall demon. On the opposite of the chamber is a pedestal with the stolen item.

    This one is shaped exactly like a human, and seems to be wearing some sort of oriental styled combat robes. It wields a weapon made of pure unholy energy but for some reason even God Slayers can't consume it. This one can speak directly into your mind, and just like fighting the 10 foot demons, it sounds like hundreds of thousands of people whispering to you. Unlike the other type, this one can hold full blown conversations and will offer you a single opportunity to turn back and leave without the item, even let you know you can take some of the water from the stream as a token from the land and tell you what it does. It appears to be civil enough to grant you this... it won't tell you what the item is, or why he wants it unfortunately. If you take the water and leave you will gain no EXP, but you will gain the vial of Living Water. If you choose to stay, the demon will attack.

    Boss: Demon
    A stated, it's 6 feet tall and looks like a human. Aside from the aforementioned sword, it also has two inch long claws that are every bit as sharp as any sword a master swordsman can make and be proud of... It uses very high level magic with a massive variety of effects from damage to crowd control to healing. It has the ability to increase its speed to move so fast that it seems to be teleporting, and is even able to unfold a pair of leathery wings and fly. Once defeated the other demons will vanish, but you will have a gut feeling that he's far from being dead..

    Reward:
    Normal B Rank EXP

    The first time you complete this job you will be given two things:
    1 - A set of Strong Rank armour.
    2 - If you took some of the water from the glowing stream, you will have a vial of Living Water. Each time you complete the job (once a month max) afterwards, you will be awarded with the vial of Living Water only. This item has a 1 use only effect; meaning that you have 1 use per vial period. Once used, that vial is gone and you do not start the next thread with it. You can take some of the water even if you decide to fight the boss... just scoop some in a glass on your way out.

    Effect: When someone dies, you may use the Living Water to resurrect that person with 50% HP and 50% MP. All of their spells will be on a 2 post cooldown, any spell that was already on cooldown will have its cooldown increased by 2 posts. All passive effects will be 100% inactive for 2 posts. If you are the one who dies, someone else must use the item on you.

    It had been a bit since Johann had last visited Hargeon Town but there he was again. He had completed all kinds of tasks around here, even before he joined the West Fiore Trading Company, from getting a brand new passport to help making potions, and met all kinds of interesting people. Now, he was here again, watching the city come closer and closer from the railing of the Company's trade ship he was on. He did not come back for fun and games, however. The Company had specifically asked him to fulfill the request of an important client who had an item stolen from him under mysterious circumstances, and Johann took the job, hearing rumors of a strange door and something dangerous that lies beyond. He usually paid no mind to rumors or anything of the like until he could see things with his own two eyes, but this time it was different, and he had a strange feeling about this.

    He pushed that aside as the ship got closer to the docks and eventually stopped. Johann stepped off the ship and onto the stone of the docks. He had gotten used to the travel at sea through the work he did for the company, and he was glad that he had gotten rid of the initial uneasiness one could sometimes feel while on a ship. He of course could've just teleported himself to Hargeon, but he was representing the West Fiore Trading Company on this job and thus had been told to travel with some of his guildmates who were sent to deliver goods to Hargeon. Additionally, in his representative role, he had put on his white-grey suit that doubled as one of his company uniforms with the symbol of the company where he always wore it, right above his heart in the form of a pin on his suit. He, at a reasonable pace, walked down the dock area and into the city, trying to follow the directions that he had been given, unsure of what to expect or who to find ... .  That was until he reached what looked like an excavation site, covered in all sorts of rubble with a large set of stairs leading down.

    "Are you the one the West Fiore Trading Company sent here?" a voice rang out behind Johann, and he turned to see a somewhat chubby, half bald middle aged man of small stature standing there, looking at him with intrigued eyes. "I'm Mr. Scepter. I'm the one who put up the request for the job with the Company. Finally you're here". Johann, before doing anything else, gave the man a respectful bow before giving him an answer. "Johann von Weiss. Indeed, I am the one the company has send to your aid. What is it I can assist you with exactly ? I've heard rumors ...". The small man seemed to be a bit traumatised, stuttering as he spoke "Nice to meet you. W-Well it's a little complicated. You see" the man continued "I've funded the excavation of these ruins here, I'm a merchant, you should know. But ... " the man seemed to be in distress as he told of what followed "We've found something ... strange ... e-evil down there. We decided to seal the place for now, but it seems that something has been stolen from me ... I can't tell you what that is just now, I need to be discreet, but I need you to get down there and find it for me. Y-you'll definitely notice it when you see it ." Johann was a bit annoyed with the man who refused to give him more info than that, but he made an effort to hide it "Very well, good sir, I can't promise you anything but I'll try my best." The man went on one last time "I-I hope so. Should you succeed I'll make sure to reward you, and the West Fiore Trading Company will get a new trading partner, does that sound like a deal ?". The man stretched out his hands for Johann to shake, who, upon hearing the word "reward" grinned broadly, taking the man's hand. "Deal" ,  and with that he prepared to make his way into the ruins ... .

    A large man, wearing bronze plate armour on its hip a broadsword, on his broad shoulder's hung a crimson cloak trimmed with fur. His face was crowned with red hair. The patrons of the inn went quiet, a man like this was seldom seen. "Mead and meat!" Said the man to the innkeeper, well he flung some coins on the bar. There was a sense of relief in the inn and the patrons began to chatter again.

    Gangting had entered Hargeon town at dusk, riding on his chariot. He had nothing to do with so he thought that he should return to the most visited place he knew, Hargeon town, in hope that he could find work there. He searched for an in to stay at for the night and use as his base of operations.

    Gangting took a seat in the back of the common room, away from the burning hearth, where most of the customers were found. There he received his order of supper and the refreshing mead. He ate his food without any disturbances and washed it away with mead when the door flung open. A cold breeze went through the room, in the door opening stood a man in ripped clothing. He held a mace his right hand and there were flames in his other. The man screamed at the innkeeper for the jewels. A sailor stood up to confront him but jumped away from a fireball and backed off. The innkeeper grabbed behind the bar for the jewels.

    The room was silent after the one brave sailor drope away as a dog with his tail between his legs. The silence was interrupted by a tankard that got smashed on a table. The giant redhead stood up with his tankard and walked to the door. He stood there, looking into the eyes of the intruder, doing nothing. Nothing happened for a moment until the criminals knee's weakened and dropped his sword and his flames disappeared as well. He fell on his knee's, begging for mercy. The giant ordered a refill at the bar and walked back to his seat in cheer. He drank for free that evening, the innkeeper would realise before the midnight that he was better off being robbed.

    Gangting opened his eyes, it was dark around him. And good that it was, his head pounded. He smelled the alcohol on his breath. "Great." He said and looked around him. He was sitting on large stone slabs, covered with a thin layer of sand. He placed his hand against one of the walls to feel how the room looked. "This isn't where I should be," He felled the tremors of a person approaching and saw a glowing light come from one of the many doors in the room.

    Johann pushed open the great stone doors at the entrance, revealing a semi lit hallway before him, a set of stone stairs leading down into the cold twilight of the ruins. Their echoes bouncing off the walls, he began walking down with steadfast steps only to arrive at some sort of chamber a minute later. The place was dark and he could barely see his own two hands before his eyes, the air was wet and stale, and the whole place had a dark and somewhat sketchy atmosphere to it. He stepped forward, sand and dust crunching under his feet, sighing as his left eye turned completely black and the pupil started shining in a bright red. He closed his right eye so he could use the infrared vision of his left to see, scanning the surroundings when he heard someone approach from behind.

    He, all within the fraction of a second, utilizing his incredible speed, drew his weapon, turned around and pointed it at the unknown figure, almost dropping it in surprise when he saw just who exactly had found his way into these ruins, quickly sheathing the blade with a grin spreading across his face. "G-Gangting, my friend. You here ? What drives you to this place ? Did you hear about the job and came here to investigate ?" the man kept talking in excitement and didn't realize that he had completely forgot his etiquette. "But where are my manners, old friend ?" Johann now raised his hand to his chest and bowed forward before standing up straight again "How have you been, it must have been months since we last met" he asked the other, eagerly awaiting answers from the brutish man before him, looking at him with his grey left and still black and shining red eye.
