Title: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on March 10, 2013, 04:06:41 pm
The creature floated through the depths of space. Disconnected from the reality of our universe, it relied on its minions to bring it sustenance.
But all that would soon change. It had thought of a way to ensure it would never need work for its food again...

Nick felt his eyes flutter open. 
"Thank the gods, he's waking up." A female voice said.
"Is that really the best way to phrase it?" A male voice asked.
"True." The female corrected. "Better to say he's becoming lucid."

Looking around, Nick found himself lying in a bed in a simple but pleasant wooden house.

"Urgh, my head..." Nick said, as he gripped his head, and looked around.
"Where am I?" Nick asked with a frown, seeing the house, but not understanding why it was there, or rather, why he was there.

"That's...a complicated matter."
The female speaker sat down next to him. "where your body is right now...well, that would be a hospital. In a coma. You were hit by a truck."

"But here..." the male said, "well...I guess you could say this is the subconscious. Not yours, though. It's more...collective. All the humans, when they dream, each create a small part of the dimension known as the Dreamlands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamlands). We're currently in your personal part of the Dreamlands, which is sealed off from the greater human hive-mind."

Nick blinked, but nodded.
"Well, I was warned to be careful, didn't listen; so this makes more sense to me than it probably would to others." Nick said, as he sighed, but was intrigued.
"So, anything I think up happens here?" Nick asked, wondering just what this entailed.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on May 14, 2013, 10:59:51 am
"Not exactly." The girl began. "Why don't I start at the beginning?"
"When you hear the word Nightmare, you think of showing up at school with no clothes, or being chased, or something, right? But that's wrong. Bad dreams are a normal part of the human mind. A Nightmare, on the other hand, is a living, sentient parasite. It infects your brain and eats your thoughts, causing severe bad dreams as a side effect."

"Everyone is infected." The boy continued. "In general, the Nightmares are fairly harmless. We're able to keep them from causing any real damage. But sometimes...well, you know the Old Wive's Tale 'if you die in a dream, you die in real life'? It's partly true. If you die in the Dreamlands, you basically become a vegetable."

"And," the girl resumed, "according to the communications we've intercepted, that's what the Nightmares are aiming for. It's an exponential growth thing. If they take over your mind, they can force open the Gate of Deeper Slumber and enter the greater Dreamlands. From there, they can take over all the other patients at the hospital. Then the doctors. Then the friends and family of the doctors, and so on."

"We're not sure why they're getting so bold." The boy concluded. "They've never tried anything like this before in the history of humanity. But they apparently got tired of just infecting humans, now they want to take over humans and use you as livestock."

"I see... So then, what, am I to just stay here and wait for them to just catch up to us?" Nick asked with a frown, not thinking that was the best idea.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:17:04 pm
OOC: Um...OK...I think I remember what I had planned for this. :P

IC: The girl shook her head. "We're here to protect you. I'm Samantha, native of your brain (hi), junior priestess of Nodens the Hunter."
The boy bowed. "I'm Leon, born in Ulthar, moved here when you were five. My job is normally to prevent you from being hypnotized or something like that, but the main point is that we're both skilled fighters."

"Better yet," Samantha added, "is the fact that this is YOUR lucid dream. Which means you can alter reality. The Nightmares have already destroyed about 20% of your personal Dreamlands (that's not bad, don't worry - most people lose about 30-40% of their personal Dreamlands to Nightmares and suffer no ill effects), so you won't be able to control everything, but still, for all intents and purposes, you're Superman."

OOC: heh. =P

-==IC: Nick==-

"What's the status on defences to start, while I learn everything needed, then? What are the weak points of these things, if any?" Nick asked, wanting a read on the situation before rushing headlong into something.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:27:38 pm
"Nightmares don't have any one appearance or anything." Leon said. "They're all custom made."
"As for defenses..." Samantha said, grinning. "For starters, the building we're in now...you've seen Home Alone, right?"

Nick smirked, and nodded.
"Watched that movie so many times when I was yo- ... Oh, that probably explains that." Nick said with a chuckle.

OOC: /smooth move

"Well, picture that, but with the addition of spiked walls, laser rifles, and flamethrowers."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: Blade on August 02, 2013, 07:40:47 pm
-==IC: Nick==-

"Also makes sense." Nick said with a nod.
"How susceptible are these walls to attacks, though? Could they withstand heavy damage?" Nick asked, still wanting to scout out the situation.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:45:19 pm
"It looks like wood, but it's actually just a thin layer of wood over a not-yet-named black stone. Completely indestructible, and nobody is quite sure what planet it's from." Leon answered. "Not even made of any known elements. It's been nicknamed 'Cthulhuite', or 'Tuluite', depending on your accent."

"That's good then. Are there any weak spots? We have to make sure that nothing can infiltrate here that we can't handle if we're swarmed, of course." Nick said, just wanting to double check.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:48:52 pm
"The windows." Samantha said. "But most Nightmares can't fly. They're usually designed for ground combat."

"Sadly," Leon interrupted, "this house is the only well defended area of your Dreamlands. If you'll give me a moment to draw you a map?"


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: Blade on August 02, 2013, 07:50:58 pm

"Go ahead." Nick said with a nod, as he looked around the room they were in, to take note of it's layout.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:54:27 pm
"Here."
(http://www.smfforfree4.com/gallery/mln/0/322_02_08_13_7_53_37.png)


Samantha raised an eyebrow. "Your art skills stink."
"I had one minute, a pencil, and fingerpaint. Let's see you do better."

"Alright then. So, looks like that river might help us in defense at least a bit." Nick said, and then thought for a moment.
"Does this power of mine apply to building stuff, or the like?" Nick asked, curious about that.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 07:59:35 pm
"I have no idea. Your powers in your own Dreamland are mainly a matter of skill, not actual limits. In the Dreamlands proper, of course, you'd have no power at all."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: Blade on August 02, 2013, 08:02:23 pm
-==IC: Nick==-

"Hmm, I see..." Nick said, as he nodded, and looked at the map once more.
"Then I think the proper bet, would be to recapture the entire Dreamlands here first." Nick said with a smirk on his face, and then looked to the other two.
"You two in?"


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:04:21 pm
Samantha picked up a flamethrower, and Leon a rocket launcher. "Do you even need to ask?" He said.
"We'll follow your every order, boss." Samantha added.

"Right then... Let's take back the land that is ours." Nick said with a grim smirk, if that was even possible.
"I'll likely need some training in the way this world works, but otherwise..."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:17:11 pm
"the laws of physics are roughly the same. You're stronger and faster, but even though you're asleep, you'll still need to eat and sleep."

"That makes sense." Nick said with a nod.
"Any special equipment that works more here than in the real world, that might help us get the upper hand?" Nick asked, as he wasn't sure of that either.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:24:54 pm
"A lot of technology- and all flying devices-won't work here. The Other Gods don't allow it."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: Blade on August 02, 2013, 08:27:11 pm
OOC: Dang it, you saw my idea without even knowing of it. =P

-==IC: Nick==-

"Well that's not good. Hopefully we won't need aerial mobility much, then..." Nick said, as he rubbed his chin in thought.
"Are there other ways to get around that?" Nick asked, as there likely were non-technology methods of the same thing.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:29:24 pm
"Even hang-gliders don't work. And most electrical vehicles are...iffy. So if you want to fly, you have two options: Nightguant, or Shantak-bird. And you don't want either, trust me."

"I'm guessing grappling hooks are right out, then..." Nick said, as he sighed.
"Well, if we're lucky, the nightmares at least won't be fast. That said, i'm not really the luckiest person, since I'm here and all." Nick said with a chuckle.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:33:53 pm
"Grappling hooks would work if they don't go too high...and if there were any mountains in your personal Dreamland." Leon said. "And some Nightmares can be VERY fast. Some are immobile. It varies."

"WEll then; this might be interesting." Nick said, as he sighed.
"About how many trees are there in the nearby area?" Nick asked before figuring out the next plan of action.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 08:41:05 pm
"Within a ten-mile radius, there are 671 trees." Samantha replied.

"Any of them close enough to each other to practice Nightmare killing techniques?" Nick asked, trying to assess the situation further.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 09:08:00 pm
"Best place for that would be the Forest of N'Jk. (Though it's technically a rainforest). Too far away, though...it'd be a 50 mile walk just to get to the border, not counting the river we'd have to cross."

"Hmm. Maybe focus on that after we've established a better place to take refuge, then." Nick said with a nod.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 09:12:12 pm
"Ideally, we'd be able to arm and train the locals..."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]

"Then that's what we should do. We could also barricade places so that they'd be harder to breach, much like this place." Nick said with a nod.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 09:18:09 pm
"The issue with barricades is that we'd never be able to get any more of the black stone."

"Hmm... Is there any way we could make up for that in any way?" Nick asked, as he wondered how powerful some of these nightmares could be.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 09:24:30 pm
(Samantha): "We could...no, the Gate's closed, that wouldn't work."

Nick sighed again.
"Well, then, let's just focus on getting to the village alive, first; maybe they have ideas."


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 02, 2013, 09:49:01 pm
"OK...it's a 65-mile walk. Longer if we go around the river."

"Then let's just go through..." Nick said, but paused.
"That said; don't you think I should have combat training, for if we run into nightmares on the way?"


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]

Post by: The Truth on August 04, 2013, 02:53:21 pm
Leon leaned out the window. "Ugh. Giant venom spitting spiders. The grunts of the Nightmare army. I'd suggest a large boot, but flamethrowers will have to do."

Nick gripped the sword in his hand, getting a feel for it.

Giant spider creatures swarmed over the plains towards the house. Spotting Nick jumping down, one of them spat a strand of webbing.

Nick dodged to the right quickly, and then kicked off from the ground, attempting to stab one of the spiders in the head quickly.
Of course it had to be spiders.

Nick, however, jumped into the air quickly, as he attempted to do anything to disintegrate the spiders no matter what.
I will not let them, of all things, win over me... not now... NOT WHEN I STILL HAVE YET TO SEE EVERYTHING. Nick mentally yelled out, as he attempted to cover his body in energy effectively; just enough to destroy the spiders.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on August 05, 2013, 06:19:58 pm
The spiders burst into flames, hissing angrily.


(Leon): "Awesome! Remember, you're in control, don't let them win!"

(Samantha): "Leon, there's a spider on your head."

"Oh, trust me... I won't let them win... I will kill the whole bunch of them." Nick growled, as he dashed forward, even quicker than before, attempting to slice his way through the spiders that were in his path, his eyes growing colder by the second.

OOC: For fun, have someone try to stop him after all the spiders are dead. =p

Nick turned his attention to the proper person to focus on, and threw his other sword at said person, resummoning the two shortly after that.

OOC: He's just not realizing the fight's over. =P Get him to realize, and all will be fine. ::) Or, alternatively, as you seem to be doing, give him a new opponent. =P

Nick was speechless, and then slowly stood up, his eyes returning to their normal look as he blinked.
"Who are you...?" Nick asked, even as he rubbed his head.

The man stood before Nick in full Pharaoh's garb. "I am known by many names. The Black Pharaoh, the Bloody Tongue, The Thousand-Faced God. I am Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos!"


OOC: Theoretically, Nyaruko COULD be one of his forms. He has at least two canon female avatars (The Red Lady and the Bloated Woman, if I recall correctly)

"I'll have you know that form is considered utterly horrifying among the beings of Yuggoth."

OOC: It's true- it's mentioned in the books that he has different forms to horrify different species, meaning humans are considered unspeakably horrific on some worlds.

"I don't think of you as an equal. I realize there's a large gap in our power; though I also talk logically, and I also think that deep down, there might not be as much to separate everyone as we think." Nick said, placing his hands behind his head, contemplating what had happened.
"That said, it is very nice to meet you; chaos can have many definitions after all... And I think you saw something interesting in me; which is why I haven't died yet." Nick noted, even if he was unaware of the fact that he had tried to attack Nyarlathotep.

"I wonder, should I appear to you in a form more suited to the Crawling Chaos? It might be amusing to see you mad...but no, I shall be merciful, for you may yet be of use. The Nightmares are a nuisance, killing those that I might otherwise make my slaves. And yet, they are too insignificant for me to devote my time to seeking their God. So I will leave you to the task of exterminating them."

"Well, I'm not sure how I went from being choked by spiders to there; but he introduced himself as Nyarlathotep, we talked for a bit, mostly about how I'm a little crazy in how I talk to people, and then he gave me the task of destroying the nightmares." Nick said, as he sat up, and looked around.
"Man, his power definitely is way beyond mine; look at where that sword..." Nick said, and blinked, as he frowned.

"Either way, they were attacking the village; we were just defending ourselves basically. We should eventually get the gate opened again, once we have a better grasp on the situation, to prevent more things like this from happening."

~~~~Floor 3~~~~
The floor here was covered with snakes as well.
In a golden and emerald throne in the centre of the room, sat...a teenager. She wore a green and gold tunic over a white and gold dress. Her hair and eyes were emerald green, her skin was an odd shade of gold, and she wore a golden serpent around her head. Thousands of snakes crawled all over her body, occasionally poking their heads out of gaps in her clothing to glare at the visitors.

OOC: Yig is not angry, so she's in human guise. Try not to annoy her, unless you want a boss battle. :P

Nick seemed surprised at Yig's appearance, but nodded.
"Hello there." Nick said kinda awkwardly, as the last time he had talked to a god of sorts, he had been rather unsure still. Now he just plain didn't want to mess up, as it wasn't just his life at stake.

OOC: You volunteered to save the children. Plus, Yig isn't a nightmare. Never said she wasn't letting them have free-roam of her territory.

"Want to see?" Yig smiled widely and opened the jar fully. It was full of the exploded corpses of at least a dozen children. "My babies crawled into their mouths, and reproduced in their bellies, until there were so many that...pop!" She licked up a bit of brain matter. "Serves them right for killing one of my babies."

Something happened in that moment.
I will kill ALL of them!! Nick mentally yelled, as he grit his teeth, adjusted the grip on his swords, and dashed forward, attempting to slash out at Yig quickly, his eyes a blanker version of what they typically were.

Yig's body exploded into a huge cloud of snakes.
"You DARE harm my children?! Suffer the Curse of Yig!"

The snakes hissed angrily, but for all the ones he burned, more slithered into the room.

Nick wasn't sure why, but what Sam called out simply served to have more cats appear. It was like her reactions were causing them to appear instead of Nick calling them, which was not going to go well, since there were beginning to be a lot of cats.

Yig shrugged and bit off the mouse's head, tossing the rest of it to her snakes.

"Ah. Delightful." She stood up higher, stretching to be easily eight feet tall, and slithered over to him. She handed him a native-American flute. "This will symbolize your vow to aid me.

"Oh, my apologies." Nick said, making the connection between Mr. Cat and the cat-person, and carefully picked up Mr. Cat, and placed the kitten in front of the cat-person respectfully.

Of course, Bast had already vanished by the time Nick bowed.
Sam straightened. "Aw..no more kitty."
Leon sighed. "Why are we meeting so many gods lately?! Even if they are minor gods, we still shouldn't be seeing this many."

"I'm not sure... It's certainly different." Nick said, not sure about that, though he seemed disappointed about Sam not having the kitten anymore. Nick then shook his head, however, and inwardly frowned.
Why am I getting disappointed...?

(Nyarlathotep): "Care to go for a third god in one day?"
(Sam): "EEEEP!" Sam and Leon threw themselves into a kneeling position so quickly they both fell on their faces.

Nyarlathotep cackled madly. "Tell me, Yuusuke..." He morphed into a perfect replica of Nick's mother. "Don't tell me you're not the least bit curious...HAHHAHAAA.a..." He spun around, morphing into the Bloody Tongue (http://davidjrodger.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/sota-nightmares-resin-statue-nyarlathotep-black-variant.jpg). "Aren't you interested in why the Nightmares want YOU? Why there are so many gods in your dreamland? Hahahhahahahaha!"

"Ahahahahahahah..haha...BWAHAH AHAHA! Oh, this is PRICELESS! He still hasn't remembered!" He transformed into Sam. "Oh Yuusuke, I wanted to tell you, but I can never admit our love!"
He then morphed into Leon. "I can't tell you! I need to be able to manipulate you! It's the same reason I lied about the sword!"
He morphed into Yig. "They told ME everything, but not you!"
He turned into a robot. "Yes-tic-...they-tic-...AhahahhahhahaHHAHAHHAHAHA!"

Nick took a step back, obviously slightly unnerved now.

"What do you mean about the sword...?"

"... If you don't want to talk to me after everything that's happened so far, and the whole sword thing, that's fine too..." Nick said with a shrug, understanding that she didn't want to talk, but likely incorrectly assuming it was because of how he had been acting that day.

"But why? Leon's just watching, and while I get the name thing, you're just petrified of the mere reference to him, and I don't understand why, unless it's because I was summoned and the stuff that just happened..." Nick said, sighing as he just didn't understand anything.

(Sam): "The part of the desert nearest the forest is Yig's territory, so that might be safest. No point chancing a trip through the Ruins."

Leon groaned and ran after him, Sam right behind him.

The ruins were freezing cold, and amazingly vast. Nick had landed on the top of a large angular building. On all sides, more buildings were visible. Piles of sand and rubble blocked off most of the subterranean city, but the largest building was still accessible, both via the streets, and via large bridges that connected the structures. Many trapdoors were visible on the street below.

Nick finally noticed the keyhole, and looked around to see if there was a key nearby.

There was not.
"I bet they kept all the keys in a central place." Sam said. "Maybe like, whatever their version of the front desk was."

"Might a skeleton key work?" Nick asked, as he tried to summon exactly that.

OOC: ...I'll allow it.

IC: The lock clicked open. Inside was....not paper per-se, but certainly something close to it. It was covered with more Yithian text.

OOC: What? It could just not have worked, but it was worth a shot, and did work. =P

-==IC: Nick==-

Nick pulled out the papers, and put them away.
"Possibly good, though I wonder if there's anything else..."

OOC: Is there? =P

The box was empty.

The wind began to pick up.

OOC: Speak more clearly then. :P

IC: The other shelves were empty save for some rubble. Another staircase led down to the bottom floor, where one of the trapdoors was.
(Sam): "Yay. We got paper. Let's not push our luck."

Nick, however, either didn't hear her, or chose to ignore her, as he proceeded toward the stairs.

Sam followed nervously.

OOC: is this going past the trap door, or to a room near it?


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on December 01, 2013, 04:54:08 pm
OOC: It goes to the room with the trapdoor.

Nick looked around, once inside the room.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on December 01, 2013, 05:00:09 pm
There were a number of empty shelves, some rubble, and the trapdoor.

Nick looked through the rubble, and looked to see if the trap doors had any windows or anything.

It didn't.
There was a symbol on the trapdoor.

"..." Sam stared into the trapdoor as the cold wind howled.

It was pitch black.

Nick then dropped down the trap door, and attempted to make out anything once down there.


Title: Re: Dreamer [RPG] [G/PG]
Post by: The Truth on December 01, 2013, 05:45:17 pm
There were dark tunnels going ahead and behind him. The wind was stronger behind him.

Nick, thinking it over for a while, headed forward, where the wind wasn't as strong.

Post by: The Truth on December 01, 2013, 11:24:14 pm
The wind began to rush towards him. The path branched out. To the left, the tunnel sloped gently downwards. Wind could be heard there too, but it seemed to echo, like it was coming from a distance. To the right, the tunnel continued straight ahead. The right tunnel was deathly quiet.

Up ahead was a circular chamber. A ladder led up to a trapdoor, and safety, however, the ladder looked as though it might collapse at any moment. Wind rushed up behind Nick.
Off to the side was another door.

Not trusting the ladder, Nick dashed toward the door to the side quickly.

In this dimly lit room, a set of stone stairs led towards another trap door. However, before the stairs was a deep chasm, so black that Nick could not see even a few feet down. A tiny bridge jutted out across the chasm, barely wide enough for a human to crawl across. From deep within the chasm, hurricane winds howled, buffeting the entire chamber.
In the dim light, Nick could make out horrific images carved into the walls, and menacing statues on all sides.

Sighing about his luck, Nick moved over to the bridge, and then crouched down, as he began to crawl across it, holding on as best as he possibly could with all his ability.

Post by: The Truth on February 03, 2014, 09:42:52 pm
A huge blast of wind came up from the chasm. The bridge shuddered as tiny cracks appeared all over it. More wind rushed up behind Nick. The light flickered, and the paintings and statues seemed to dance grotesquely.

Nick frowned, but tried to go slightly faster across, while also trying to not fall off.

Small pieces of the bridge began to fall off.
