    @SAF @NyxieRina

    Here we go--our epic martial arts adventure starts now!

    It is a dark day in the martial world of Hisui--the master of The Path of the Legendary Lands has been found dead, and the school's prized secret art, the Resplendent Mist Manual, is missing. If mastered by one with a pure heart, the martial world will prosper. If mastered by one with an evil heart, the martial world will enter a dark age. It goes without saying sects good, neutral, and evil are all scrambling to find the scroll, and learn its secrets.

    But a band of heroes, alongside a group of six best friends known in the martial world as the Six Guardian Spirits, are seeking the scroll for another reason--deliver it to the closest scholar's sect for safekeeping. In their research as to who could've slain the master of The Path of the Legendary Lands, they learned he was attacked not by one assailant but twelve--a group of twelve evil fighters known as the Dark Zodiac.

    In order, they are Golden Chu, who is the leader, Onyx Tauros, Jade Raikou, White Buneary, Stellar Dragonair, Sapphire Arbok, Cerulean Ponyta, Silver Dubwool, Mythic Infernape, Imperial Combusken, Youthful Arcanine, and Pearl Emboar.

    The Dark Zodiac mainly wander the world, stirring up trouble wherever they can. But they do have fortresses of their own, filled with minions, traps, and puzzles to confound all comers.

    Worried rumors fly across Hisui, and Pure White Village in eastern Hisui is no exception. Many are worrying that one of the sects that train around the village and White God Mountain could be next. Others worry the Dark Zodiac are in league with yokai. Still others wonder if there is anyone brave enough to challenge the Dark Zodiac.

    It is here the adventure begins...

    Oyama Fumiko It's not just the master of The Path of the Legendary Lands who had died in the hands of the Dark Zodiac. A warrior in his early twenties, Oyama Natsu, and his Lucario were also killed during the onslaught. This spurred his younger sister, Oyama Fumiko, to be an impromptu detective. "Impromptu" because she hadn't even dreamed to be one when she was a kid. Together with her Hawlucha and Natsu's Decidueye (Luchabull and Junaiper, respectively), Fumiko started her own research on who might be responsible for her brother's death, eventually leading her to Pure White Village.

    Kokuo Nagisa Meanwhile, on the other side of the village, Kokuo Nagisa and his Smeargle, Emina, had just finished a mural on a villager's outer walls. He had no qualms about painting murals as long as he's getting paid for it. That, or it's for an emergency, though his "emergency mural" looked more like a messed-up, vandalized version of graffiti than a mural.

    While he's at it, Nagisa decided to ask his current client about the Six Guardian Spirits. He opened up a scroll with his own take on the group painted on it: a phoenix, a dragon, a Raikou, a Delphox, a Beautifly, and a Deerling, all drawn with black outlines. He also wrote "The Six Guardian Spirits" under the whole drawing to avoid possible confusions.

    To Nagisa:

    "They say the Six Guardian Spirits are very powerful heroes." the woman smiled when she saw the sketch. "They have traveled all across this land, and battled many a terrifying foe. There are rumors they're here in town...Ruby Phoenix and Golden Delphox call this place home, after all."

    "Ruby Phoenix and Golden Delphox, right?" Nagisa signed after passing his scroll to Emina. "Have you -- or anyone -- actually seen them?" he asked the client.

    Little did he know that Fumiko (who had just arrived at the village) was listening to the conversation. The Six Guardian Spirits? What's with them anyway? she mentally wondered.

    To Nagisa:

    "Ruby Phoenix you can often hear before you see him." the woman explained. "He may seem like a traveling musician with a flute, but this belies a highly skilled actor, swordsman and tamer of Pokémon--if he cannot fight himself, he has his faithful Pikachu, Arashi."

    "Golden Delphox may seem like a dancer from a far away land, but her dance is deadly to the forces of evil! Her dancing ability makes her an agile fighter, often running in circles around daiken wielding brutes."

    (daiken--the equivalent of a greatsword in this world)

    Luckily for Nagisa, his hearing was still A-OK despite his muteness, so this info would still be handy for him. He thanked the woman with sign (after getting paid, of course) and walked away with Emina who had already finished rolling the scroll by then.

    Fumiko though, was still curious. So she decided to tail Nagisa for now.

    Kadae Sen

    The village had been the first one she'd seen all week. She smiled as she trudged towards it, careful to mke sure her sharpened scythe did not scrape anything it was meant to. When she set out on her impromptu journey she had no real plans as to where to go. Just a direction and a wipl. And while she didn't mind living it rough it was a blessing to see civilization again. Her two Pokémon shared the sentiment, seemingly cheering as they neared the city gates.

    But now that she was in though, she was lost. It looked way different than her old town and she wasn't sure where to begin exploring. Going off the same idea as last time she picked a direction and walked. Hopefully she'd encounter a market place soon.


    Mizushima Tokujiro

    The journey was rougher than Tokujiro had expecting (how was he supposed to know Sevipers made their homes in the tall grass?) But eventually the young mage made it to the village. He heard rumors that the Guardian Spirits lived here and he was here to make his case to join them as a warrior!

    He fixed his pack, making sure that his partner Phione was resting soundly and wandered the villagem Surely someone as powerful and important as the Guardian Spirits would stand out easily and hed be able to impress them just as well!

    (You'll be able to hear the boys before you see them--especially Ruby Phoenix)

    Just then, a throng of excited people began making their way to the town square. The whispers in the crowd signaled that Ruby Phoenix and Golden Delphox were going to perform one of their theatrical showcases. Ruby Phoenix knew a large amount of the theatrical flute repertoire, and would play some of them while Golden Delphox performed her enchanted dance. What tips they earned, they donated to the poor.

    (I think @NyxieRina might wanna watch this thread...)

    Both Nagisa and Fumiko was taken aback by the enthusiastic citizens. "Eeeh? Ruby Phoenix?" Fumiko squealed when a random citizen told her about whatever was happening. "That's right, miss. Him and Golden Delphox are in town now. Don't wanna miss 'em out~" they briefly explained before making a mad dash to the town square. Fumiko turned to Luchabull, then to Junaiper, and soon followed the crowd when both Pokémon gave her a nod.

    Little did she know that it was Nagisa's turn to overhear that. Speaking of the devil! he mentally mused as he made his way to the town square.

    (Sorry. I had class)

    Sen was stopped by the sound of the bustling and enthusiastic villagers. She was confused, did she come during a festival time? She asked a nearby civilian what was going on. "Ruby Pheonix and Golden Delphox are holding a show! You don't want to be late!" Hm. Interesting. She knew vaguely about them and didn't know they performed as well. Maybe she should take a peek, if only to see those heroes in action.

    Tokujiro was in a similar state. His eyes shone when he heard that. Yes! He was right! They were here in the flesh! Performing? Well, he was skilled on his flute, maybe he should enchant them with his excellent playing as well. Wouldn't that be a treat!. He made his way towards the Town Square, barely stopping until he made it. He squeezed in between all the peasants, trying to get front row seats to see the spirits

    In the square, a black haired boy in a majestic dull red robe with gold trim tested a few notes on a well loved side blown flute with phoenix designs and a red tassel. "Ready?" he asked as his companion, a blonde haired girl in a glittering gold dancer's costume, stretched in a patch of grass.

    "Let me stretch first, and I'll be ready." the girl replied as she did another stretch with her left leg

    As soon as Nagisa could see the stage, he was shoved to his side by someone trying to squeeze into the crowd. If he weren't mute, he would've yelped at the first push. Instead, he turned to whoever had pushed him aside and angrily signed, "What the heck is that!?"

    (I'm leaving who had pushed poor Nagisa up to interpretations. But one thing for sure: it wasn't Fumiko.)

    He was so close! Tokujiro could see the crowd thinning and the two performers on stage. Just a little more to the front seat!

    Suddenly he was facing another boy almost his age, angrily making hand gestures at him. At first he was confused. Who was this weird dude making weird motions at him? Until he belatedly realized that he was signing. Unfortunately he didn't get any of the characters. Whoops.

    "Uh, what? I didn't catch what you were signing." He said, a little irritated. It must be important to make him get his attention like that.

    Oookay, now that's awkward. At least the other guy knew that Nagisa was signing. Otherwise, he would've struggled to get his notebook and write on it. Plus, Nagisa could've repeated his angered signing earlier, but now that he's calmer and managed to stand up, he decided to rephrase it instead: "I was mad when you pushed me like that, sorry."

    (I'm ready. Don't really think Nagisa's interaction with Tokujiro would affect the show anyway.)

    (Just woke up sorry)

    @SAF

    "Huh." And that was all there was to say. "Sorry I guess." Tokujiro didn't really see why he got stopped just for that. No one else seemed to complain.

    Not really sure what else to do he just turned away from the signing boy and to the stage. He didnt want to miss the opening act looking somewhere else.

    (Eh. No need to be sorry. Just take your time, okay?)

    So the other guy had decided not to make a fuss of this minor inconvenience and turned his attention to the stage. Nagisa too, turned his attention to the stage with Emina riding on his head. The show was about to start, after all.

    Same goes with Fumiko who somehow managed to get lost of Nagisa's track. She ended up getting herself comfortable with Luchabull riding on her head. Junaiper? He simply stood by her side.

    (To host: I believe both Nyxie and I are ready to move on.)

    (will leave what Ruby Phoenix plays to your imaginations for now...)

    A heroic note rang through the sky as Ruby Phoenix started the tune "The Whirling Divine Delphox".. The song seemed appropriate to the whirling mass of ribbons that Golden Delphox weaved and whirled through. Every step, every jump, every spin--each step was all expertly timed to her faithful partner's heroic song.
