PostSubject: The first step[closed]    Sun Apr 23, 2017 6:21 pm

Her first steps toward the gate she was unsure.

Having to never fight anyone in her life she was doubtful she could return home, since to pass the first level.. well.. She took another glance at the gate an uneasy feeling creeping up her skin. Claire had to battle with the gate keepers.. to return back to her family, back to her loved ones. She smacked her own forehead, shaking away her feelings of unease. She had to be confident., that was the first step in winning a battle.. to have confidence and unwavering determination. With a deep breath Claire calmed herself down, she glanced at her cross one of the very first things that she was given when she started out her journey and let out a small smile. She wouldn't fail, God was with her, he would always be watching her. God wanted Claire to return home, to her family, her loved ones.

She didn't have great fighting abilities but she had strategy, she had confidence she would be able to outsmart this gate-keeper.. after all, all they were apart of some computer programming, they wouldn't know much about fighting right? And despite that, they didn't have God on their side, Claire did. With a smile she rushed towards the gate

she was ready to leave.

By the gate, there was a lone tree. Branches and twigs jutted out of the biomass, but they seemed to curl downward, reaching the floor. Yes, they were connected to something, a figure. The figure moved. It stretched, snapping sticks and treebark. Its skin was half human, half...tree. Its limbs were long.

It sighed, and turned to the girl. Its face was that of a man, facial hair mingling with vines, half the face covered with a skeletal frame. Was that his skull, or that of a deer? It was too close to his face, grafted to the skin to tell. The figure cracked his fingers, more splints flying off, and groaned. "I take it you aren't here to chat," he grumbled. She was smiling; he tilted his head. Then, he smiled too.

"I won't go easy on you," he said with a mellow murmur, getting into a fighting stance, bringing forward massive tree-branch limbs.

Claire did have her suspicions about that tree.. but she figured nothing of it, that was until it moved. Her eyes slightly enlarged before she narrowed them, she wasn't expecting the gate keeper to look so. She studied his face some more trying to think of the correct term... intimidating? she supposed.

Claire stayed silent, she couldn't chat and fight at the same time. Her confident smile vanished from her face as soon as he smiled.. 'this man..' she was surprised when branches came towards her and she quickly jumped to dodge them. He wasn't that fast.. maybe soon she'll have a opening for a attack.

As she dodged, the man recoiled. "My name is Richter, young lady." he said silently. Each step brought forth a snap from somewhere on his body, but he didn't seem phased by it. "I am the most powerful mage on this Level, a wicken in conversion," he said, wincing. "What are you, a cleric? I've always hated clerics. They're mages without the drive." He swung his limb at her again, but this time, his small fingers shot out, turning into vines, reaching to constrain her.

The gatekeeper, he seemed to have manners. He called her lady, and told her his name. It was only respectable that she told him her own. Maybe as they chatted she could think of a better plan. "Claire.." She muttered giving him a glare, as he tried to intimidate her by calling himself the most 'powerful' mage.

She leapt up again to dodge his attack, ignoring his statement. Clerics did have drive! They had to have strength in order to protect and heal, how dare this mage doubt her. Her eyes widened when the vines spurted out, she quickly deflected the vines away with her cross.

She had to start playing offensively... but she needed to plan out her attack.

"Rrgh." The mage retracted his vines, but quickly brought them outward again, this time with both hands. They clasped around her cross, and he pulled, the gatekeeper trying to pry it from the girl. "Without this, you're useless, I'd think." As his vines pulled at her 'weapon,' he moved further, his joints rigid and popping, his stride slow. He was going to take his time. Maybe have fun with this.

This was bad, with this gate keeper being a long ranged fighter Claire couldn't get close to him without having to deal with his branches or vines.. Her eyes widened when he grabbed her cross, she held onto her cross with all her might, there was no way she was going to let him have this!

She pulled with all her strength she cant let him have her cross.. she had to win this tug-a-war just this once! Thats when she realized something. It seemed that the branches were apart of him.. like a second set of arms, if she attacked his vines and other limbs.. she could win!

With one hard tug she managed to pull her cross away from his vines, some ripping in the process. She then quickly attacked at his branch.

At her attack, one of the vines snapped, disappearing in a barrage of pixels. Richter yowled, his HP zapping above his head. "Cheap cleric tactics," the man snapped. Having reached her, the massive gatekeeper grabbed the girl by the neck, the remaining vines retracting once more into fingers. "You sully the good name of magic. Die!" taking the girl, he slammed her into the ground, as hard as he could. Her HP dwindled. The man fell back.

"You interrupted my meditation." He rose his hands, including the missing finger, out of the group, massive thorny vines came, shooting upwards and traveling into the open air. "To hit me a few times with a cross!?"

Her smile returned, she did some damage! And by the sound of his pain.. it did a lot! Claire let out a scoff when he dismissed her tactic as some cheap cleric one, couldn't he just admit that she was smart? She let out a gasp when the vines wrapped around her and when he had grabbed her around the neck, strangling her.

Struggling she dug her finger nails into him, and did the best she could to kick him around, then suddenly.. she was slammed into the ground. Claire let out a groan and a cough, her breath becoming shaky as blood seeped from her noise. She felt herself becoming weaker she needed to heal.. and fast. She still laid on the floor and her hand reached for her cross.. all she needed to do was to touch it..

Her finger barely reached it, but she quickly felt some strength come back, it was just enough to move out of the way for his attack. Still she stumbled as she moved, almost hitting the floor again. She couldn't push herself when she was healing.

So she could use magic after all. Richter smiled, but it wasn't a cocky one or a mean one. It was almost proud. "I see you do have some magic skills," he commented. The vines suddenly sunk back into the ground, and the man backed up. It seemed like he was almost about to surrender, when...

He rose his hand, and suddenly, the tree behind him began to shake. It rattled, the branches lurching, leaves falling around it on the ground. Then, it rose. Feet made themselves out of its roots, and the tree began to walk. It stomped up behind Richter, sending shockwaves across the ground. Richter put up his hand, and it stopped.

"I'll let you pass," he said, intentionally pausing for a moment. "If you defeat my golem here. Make it fall, and you will be granted victorious."

The smile that appeared on his face.. was he trying to trick her? She didn't let her guard down as the vines seemed to retreat. Her gaze questioned Richter, why did he underestimate her so much? Just because she was a cleric didn't mean she wasn't able to fight, she hated labels, she hated when people assumed the best out of you. She had high expectations of herself and she wanted to make sure that she met them. As he rose her hand she thought he was preparing an attack she blinked as the ground shook and glanced behind her to see a large tree, moving towards her.

She almost laughed, defeat a large tree? That seemed simple enough. She chopped down trees all day and this tree would also fall. She smiled confidently, for some 'powerful' mage she was expecting much more. "Ill have this thing going timber in flat seconds." She muttered and dashed towards it to attack.

The tree was slow. Though it had no face, it seemed to turn towards the girl, and with calculated movements, it thrust a giant foot at her. Its upper branches bore down like spindly arms, its fingers reaching out, seemingly at nothing, seemingly ready to catch whatever it could. Richter watched from afar, his arms crossed. Did she just make a corny one-liner? Did this dufus really think she was going to beat this thing?

She had spirit, at least.

She wasn't very sure how she would beat this tree, she had no form of blade with her and saw nothing sharp around that could inflict some damage. It was going to be tough since this thing was basically a faceless robot with no feelings, she shouldn't be holding back.

She dodged the fingers of the tree and quickly weaved around it, taking her cross and slamming it straight into the middle of the tree like you would do with an axe.

The tree splinted, the cross daggering into the side of the tree, bits flying off and the trunk getting cut into by the force. However, it was a shallow mark; the tree golem roared, its voice empty and deep as a lion's. It flung its foot, a coil of sharp roots, straight at Claire's gut in recoil. Meanwhile, Richter had returned to the base of another tree, and seemed lost in meditation.

Claire took a pretty bad hit, her hp lowered and she breathed heavy.

But at least she did some damage, with her healing cross she wouldn't be able to die, she wouldn't let herself no way. Since this was a tree she was fighting she knew how to take care of it. She looked at it's root's her eyes narrowing. If she pulled them out.. it would die.

She quickly moved latching herself onto the trees roots and ripping them away.
