    SwollenMan has come out to play...

    Post by Talis on 6th December 2018, 6:50 am

    Job Title:
    Defeat SwollenMan

    Rank:
    B Rank

    Player Requirements:
    B rank, or 2 or more C Ranks; 7,500 words per player; needs 2-5 mages maximum; Players can only do this job once

    Job Requirements:
    You must defeat the legendary SwollenMan and his cultists. Take any lost children back to the village.

    Job Location:
    Any place with mountains

    Job Description:
    Recent rumors have cropped up of children going missing in the mountains. Around this same time, families and friends have noticed that there is an ongoing trend belief in an evil entity named SwollenMan. A report has come in of various groups of children and very young mages alike falling prey to the myth of the evil and omnipotent entity named SwollenMan. A grotesque, globular and obese man wearing a pin stripe suit and lacking any facial features, this entity is said to kill by the dozens all around the world. Some youth have grouped up despite their parents warnings,and begun exploring the mountains and forests to find SwollenMan. The rumors were propagated by various believers and cultists who claimed to have seen the SwollenMan and in sudden understanding of his all powerful greatness, have chosen to protect the entity. Discover the connection between myth and fact, explore the mountains, and put an end to the rumors, the cultists, and SwollenMan once and for all.

    Enemies:
    Weak:
    Lost Children x10: Lost in the mountains, these children which have survived on their own have become wild and violent. Fairly easily subdued, these children need to be taken back to their families at some point, but beware. They like to kick, scratch, and bite and are extremely hungry. Feeding them will subdue them but if you get close to one of the little buggers, they will probably attack you and deal D rank damage.

    Normal:
    SwollenMan Believers x10: These believers are those who have heard the rumor of SwollenMan and are obsessed with tracking the entity down and seeing him for themselves. They believe that if they can find SwollenMan and appease him, then they will be protected from his heinous appetites. They carry various types of weapons and despite being a bit unhinged, they know how to use the weapons at an average level. Mostly, they are dedicated to their journey and will fight any who seek to hinder them or any who plan to go after the entity. They carry swords, staffs, and bows and quivers. They deal C rank damage each, but the main issue is that there are so many of them and they don't seem to be able to be reasoned with. They do not use magic and they are not mages. It takes 1B rank hit to take 1 of them down.

    Strong:
    SwollenMan Cultists x6: These cultists are like the believers, except for they are mages and are much more adept. They are proficient, intelligent, but obsessively insane. They will die to protect SwollenMan and fight vehemently to bring victims to SwollenMan for his insatiable appetite. You learn from them, and the small group of sobbing children with them, that SwollenMan is an entity that eats people and that is why he is so fat. The cultists are not very good at working together, but they are strong. If you set the children free, they will run around in fear and can end up targets of the cultists.

    Two of them are requip mages, with weapons that deal B rank damage and armor that can block two B rank hits. They take 5 B rank hits to take down.

    Two of the cultists use lightning magic, and focus on paralysis attacks and debuffs that reduce or improve abilities by 1 rank. They take 3 B rank hits to take down.

    Two of the cultists are summoners which summon magical beasts, monsters and spirits to help attack. The cultists can each summon no more than 3 summons at a time which deal C rank damage each. These cultists take 3 B rank damage to take down.

    Boss:
    SwollenMan: This entity is old and very large. Standing at 5m tall, he appears to be a very fat man with a huge waistline, and plump arms and legs. Where his face should be, is a blank featureless slate and the only way to tell which side of him is really the front is by observing where the front of his black and white pinstripe suit and tie is. SwollenMan is quite powerful to fight and has many strange abilities that define just where all those rumors come from. First, the area where SwollenMan is filled with a thick dense fog, likely some spell to reduce easy travel and make capture inevitable for children. The fog stretches in an area around SwollenMan for a radius of 30m. SwollenMan doesn't appear to be holding any weapons but he has the following abilities to attack with. SwollenMan takes 10 B Rank hits to take him down.

    Teleport spell:
    He can teleport up to 10m before making an attack and prefers to hide in the fog and teleport behind his victims. This is an unlimited ability unless SwollenMan plans to also attack and then it has a one round cooldown.

    Fog spell:
    For 30m radius around himself, a dense fog is created limiting sight and movement, and as victims will discover sound is limited as well. This allows SwollenMan to be nearly silent in his stealthy attacks.

    Fear aura:
    He can release an aura within 15m of himself that causes victims to feel an intense fear. If victims stay in the aura's range for a post length duration, they have the chance at becoming paralyzed with fear. This aura is a light grey and blends in well with the fog. Can deal D rank damage from contact, but the debuffs linger for two rounds once outside of the aura.

    Poison aura:
    He can release a poisonous aura within 10m of himself that causes victims to feel an intense burning sensation and suffocation. If victims stay in the aura's range for a post length duration, they have the chance at becoming nauseated, dizzy, and lose their sense of sight temporarily. Can deal D rank damage, but the debuffs linger for two rounds once outside of the aura.

    Black Tentacles:
    From SwollenMan's back, when he is ready to attack, enormous black tentacles with a 15m reach grow and slam victims. They can hit targets, wrap around targets for a grapple, and drag targets closer in to be consumed by a hidden mouth on SwollenMan's blank face. Being squeezed can deal C-B Rank damage.

    Bite attack:
    A hidden mouth on SwollenMan's blank featureless face. When ready to feed on a victim, or if in extreme danger, the entity may resort to biting which deals B Rank damage.

    Reward:
    B Rank experience
    Strong(+) Weapon of your own customization (found abandoned in the mountains or on the body of a cultist), and 10K Jewels.

    Not too long ago, there have been rumors of little kids going missing in the mountains. Mia was not going to lie, she felt sorry for them, they didn’t ask for be going missing, and that no matter how careful parents are going to be, they will be going missing regardless. Mia has decided that she wanted to take care of this individual, and that if someone doesn’t then who will.

    Quickly, she announced that she was going to take the job, and funnily enough, one of the newer members has decided to join her on this job. Mia doesn’t know the guys true intentions as to why, but it was really nice of them for wanting to also do this job. Nonetheless, it got Mia pumped up and ready to take on the challenge.

    She has heard of the many stories regarding SwollenMan and what he does involving children. She heard of his appearence too, and it was just vile. According to the stories, he was rather podgy and well dressed… his face shows nothing ordinary, in fact, it doesn’t even look like a face.

    Of course, this will not only be Mia’s first job with Apollo, but it will also be her first job with her exceed Momo. Momo didn’t want to be left alone in the guild, she wanted to be with Mia. She was an exceed after all, and Momo felt it was her job to take care of Mia as she journeyed on her path of being a hybrid slayer.

    “Now remember Momo, if you spot any danger, you are to stay behind me. Do you understand??” She cautioned her little Exceed as she flapped her ear-like wings. Momo then nodded and then flew straight into Mia’s arms, cuddling her tightly.

    “Will you be fine, Mia??” Momo asked the slayer. “It seems just a bit dangerous… I don’t want you hurt, your family won’t be happy at all.”

    “Yes, I will be absolutely fine, sweetie. Do not worry about me. I know quite a lot about being a mage now, and besides. I want to take down this SwollenMan, I want to do it for the kids and I want to do it to help everyone stay safe. Right now, this is my primary concern.”

    Momo nodded slowly as they seemed to understand what Mia meant by that and then managed to sit comfortably on her shoulder, wiggling their little legs and arms all over the place.

    “How are you feeling, Apollo?” Mia asked her companion, the one who wanted to help with the job. “Where do you think we should start?? I don’t think I have been on this mountain before personally.”

    As Apollo would walk with this girl who had asked for anyone's help with the job she was doing, he would give a deep tired sounding sigh.  this would be his first official jobs as he joined back with the Guild and he was already kind of regretting it.  not because of the person he was with for the job itself but because of his own personal issues at the current moment however the person he was with wasn't exactly helping.  he would drown out their conversation while they walked as they were just talking about something along the lines of if they would be okay and this that and whatever they were talking about, he could care less his only concern was getting through this preferably with her alive.   Bearing this in mind he would slightly adjust his red time and then shove his hands in his pockets he would start to think about it a bit more.  Apparently rumor had it that these swallow man I've been going around it and kidnapping young mages or doing something with them and they've been disappearing.  They were now tasked with dealing with this issue because no one else one.  Apollo would quickly snapback to reality upon hearing his name and asking about how he was doing and if he knew anything about the mountains they were going to.  He would just looking at her blankly for a moment, wondering why she was asking such a pointless question to him.  Matter if he was okay or not okay with any of this how he was truly feeling as it was already here and it wouldn't affect their job in any way.  she want to something spiteful mean but he held it in, he  has to try and be civil so for now he would fake it the best he could. Then take a deep breath before answering pulling out one hand in his pocket and rubbing the back of his neck.  "I'm just fine..." Is tone sounded a little sarcastic though pull back quite a bit trying to be friendly.  Give me the answer to answer her second inquiry. Though he had to understand she had done any research on this at all.  Furthermore he hoped he didn't have to babysit this one.  "Yeah supposedly mythical creatures use this mountain as a home so it would not surprise me if we found them fairly soon.". He would say knowing he had his gun tucked away behind his coat just in case.  ". So why don't you tell me what you can do... Before we gets jumped by all these creatures". he sounded like he could care less about what you could actually do as with his archiving magic he could easily look it up and figure it out for the snap his fingers was a sign of distrust and as of right  now. however he took a moment to think about it you should probably tell her his magic as well in the same that agonizing question of what what can you do.  So before she could answer the inquiry he would answer. "I use a variety of defensive base spells, And archiving Magic...so I will be ready to save you when you need it..." his tone sounded like regardless of what what happened he would have to save her anyway what he was sincere when he was asking and telling regardless of his attitude or remarks.he would then patiently wapit for her to answer his question putting his hands back in his pockets.

    Looking at Apollo, he seemed a little annoyed at the young woman and her exceed. Mia didn’t pay much attention to it though, she had much better matters to attend to than Apollo’s attitude. On the bright side, he seemed to be curious about what she can do exactly, she was a little worried about that question though. He might not like the fact that she was both a demon and a dragon slayer… Then again, he could be nervous because of Swollenman, it wouldn’t surprise her if he was. Swollenman sounded like he was one hell of a guy.

    Nonetheless, she decided to tell him just exactly what she can do, he did tell her what he can do after all. Both of his magic was also very interesting.

    “I can dish out pure damage and some spells. I can also empower others through dance.” Mia smiled softly as she answered him. She wasn’t sure how to react when he said that he was ready to save her for when she needs it, but she can also do the same for the both of them.

    Not too long after she answered that, a rustling and some footsteps were heard. This caused a fight or flight trigger in Mia’s system and she immediately got herself ready to fight. Her exceed done something similiar and flew behind her master nervously.

    “Who will it be, who will it be?!” Momo asked.

    The footsteps revealed to not be one, but quite a number of people. They didn’t seem to be pleased at Mia’s, Momo’s, and Apollo’s appearence and they seemed to be ready to attack the trio. That assumption was quickly revealed to be correct and they started to charge at the trio.

    Quickly, Mia summoned a bo staff made of pure flames and charged straight at them, she charged them straight down by jumping in and then spinning, spinning her bo staff around elegantly. They were all on the floor, but they looked like they weren’t done yet. They all got up in sync and attacked her. Mia dodged it just in time by jumping however, making 2 of them attack themselves. Mia then smacked the both of them a few times with her staff and they then went down.

    Two down, eight more to go, Mia was ready to take on another few. She also wasn’t sure what Apollo was doing, she was that focused on taking down the enemies that were right in front of them.

    Continuing with her bo staff, the girl then started to incorporate dance moves into her fighting, she was spinning, she was burning, she pretty much did everything she could to take down her enemies. Soon after, she got another three down and landed on the feet breathing heavily, the last enemy took a somersault and a few other tricks to take down.

    “Bloody hell.” The girl mumbled under her breath as she continued breathing heavily. She was reminded of the time when the clan invaded Sakuramori with the intention of bringing her and her mother down. She wasn’t going to let that get to her though, what was happening now was less intense than what happened at Sakuramori, those were just countless and countless of enemy clan members, ready to kill her and her mother.
