[Dark World Event] || [The Evil Realm] || [Open] || [2/3]

Characters: Anyone who signed up for the Dark World Plot! Look at tag list for more details.
Setting: The 4th and 5th of March. Located in the Cursed Floors + Ganon's Tower (Floors 6, 7, 8, 12, 62, 65, 68, 70, 73 and 79 + Floor 75).
Format: Most likely action but left at the players's discretion.
Summary: Your character somehow got trapped in the Forest Floor of the Tower-- And it looks nothing like the Forest Floor the characters remember. It's the beginning of the Dark World. Some floors look pretty different from what they did before, some nearly identical. The only way to get out is to go through the dungeons that make up this Dark World.

All characters start out in the Dark Forest, then as they go throughout the forest, they magically walk into one of the three dungeons (the one they have been assigned to). By exploring the dungeons, they will acquire one of the three Pendants that lead to the Core of the Curse, from where the cursed floors can be ended. However, Richtofen is there and happy to make sure that won't be that easy.

Mingle threads are simply for Mingle, whereas the exploration of the dungeons, puzzles, etc happens in the Exploration threads. OOC information here.

Warning: While your character may survive fine and all, the dark world is a dangerous place with lots of monsters and puzzles to solve. Characters may get harmed or killed, but that is left to the players's discretion. Characters going through the water of temple may lose their patience and sanity.

Arrival in the Dark World
Here are simply listed the three different ways your characters may have gotten dragged into the Dark World. Note this can be a combination of many of these ways, feel free to pick how your characters arrived in!

• The character may simply have been present on the floor when Ganondorf cursed it. That's really… Bad luck? If that is how it happened, the character would have been immediately transported into the Dark Forest Floor. If they arrived before the 4th of March, they would have been unable to leave this floor for three days. Which may be pretty unnerving.

• The character may have been caught by a floormaster or wallmaster somewhere throughout the tower, and cast into the Dark World. Floormasters and Wallmasters are gigantic and creepy black, red or purple hands that come out from either the floor or the ceiling and take characters to another part of the tower, point in case the Dark Forest.

• They character may have found one of the black doors of Mordor leading into the cursed floors. Out of luck, a creepy black hand similar to that of wallmaster could have come out of from the door and have dragged them in.

• The last option is the simplest, Ganondorf hided in the shadows and cast a spell on you that teleported you right into the Dark Forest. This option is mostly directed to those who have past history with Ganondorf or who are known to be close of Princess Zelda, Link and Tetra.

[ Following the battle against your own dark self, the trials and puzzles you solved, you are back in the maze you were in earlier-- However, the maze is slowly being submerged by sand falling from the ceiling. It is not too dangerous though, if you manage to keep up with the sand before long the maze will be a plane surface covered with sand.

And in the middle of this sand covered floor appears the Pendant of Courage, quietly floating above the sand. The Pendant shines lightly and unlike anything else in the dark world, it feels as if positive energy radiates from it.

Maybe trying to get it is the final thing to do in order to find the exit from the dark world? It looks fairly easy. ]

[How she made it this far was a testament to her will, and perhaps her inner strength, to persevere. Not that she hadn't made it this point without incurring some serious damage. Her left arm was broken, elbow bent unnaturally inward, along with several ribs and three fingers of her right hand. Muscles of her legs ached and each breath into her lungs burned. But she was standing and that had to mean for something.

Eyes move upward, staring at the shower of sand that poured from the ceiling, spilling onto the temple floor and slowly rising around her feet. Clearly if she didn't move she'd be buried alive, so Elena walks slowly, placing each foot atop the stand to rise with it, a perma-frown on her face. She was going to find sand everywhere for the next few days if she survived this.

When the sand finally stops and the floating green stone becomes visible, her objective is made clear. She had to obtain the stone. That had to be the key to their freedom from this deathtrap. Her steps are carefully placed, the thoughts of quicksand on the forefront of her mind, as she moves closer to the stone.]

[Elena will be interrupted by a voice, which first addresses Luffy, and then everyone else in the room.]

[ Ishtar somehow made her way into the mess and didn't even know what was going on anymore. She had to run away with Shion but somehow she ended up losing the boy and traveled on her own for most of the time. Eventually, however she ended up here, and she didn't feel like fighting anything really. She was just tired and upset about the whole ordeal from earlier.

Everything was slowly becoming irritating as she made it further down the path.

It surprised her more that she saw Elena. Seeing that she was the type of person to help no matter what, she moved towards the blond. Sidia had not been sheathed since she had drawn it. It was rare that Ishtar even had her weapon out for this long. It seemed like even someone like her, would eventually lose it. ]

[ The sand kept flowing at a steady pace. At some point however, in spite of the sand pouring from the ceiling, it appeared the level of the ground remained the same, fairly stable.

And Elena's fear would be justified-- When she would found herself mid-way between her starting point and the pendant, she would feel the sand trying to absorb her, the quicksand actually trying to drag her toward the pendant... Except at this rate, she would be drown under tons of sands before reaching the pendant.

Remaining stable would be hard and these quicksand would only try to drag her down faster if she tried to go back or struggle. ]

[It didn't matter who they were, it was obvious they weren't fighting alongside whatever or whoever was making this happen. He'd do what he could to help, even if it meant putting himself in harms way. He'd been in worse spots before, and sand was nothing he hadn't had to deal with before.

He took one step forward, as if throwing a baseball, casting his arm out toward Elena and the Ishtar. Calling out was the best he could do, not intentionally trying to hit them or attack. Hopefully, he thought, that they understood.]

notastain: (Arriving on the scene!)

Sorry I'm late!

[...and suddenly there is an angel running and hopping along the shifting sands. Pit can't fly, but he's light on his feet and he can at least glide a little as he hops along toward the pendant.]

Careful, guys! I think there might be a Moldorm here!

[It would make sense; those things usually appeared in Zelda games where there was sand.]

[ At this point anyone approaching from the room's center would feel, much like Elena, the sand trying to absorb them, trying to drag them toward the pendant. However before long the pendant would be swallowed by the sand itself and the center of the room would become black as if something was about to come out.

The whole ground in the room would actually shake, and it would last for roughly one minute. People staying clear from the area near the center wouldn't be drawn to it. ]
savedbyasong: (no it's not happening.)

Elena! [It was getting harder to stay back, and soon Shion was being drawn nearer to the centre wit the others, towards the blackness... He could see Ishtar as well, and others...]
provenworth: (Yelling | Stop that right now!)


[personal profile] provenworth 2013-03-22 05:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[This was bad. Oh so bad and why the hell did others have to get involved? She'd been doing just fine when, no more than past the mid-point, everything when to shit. The sand beneath her slowly pulling at her ankles and calves, pulling her down and, oddly enough, towards the pendant. The woman - she'd seen her before, perhaps? - who had tried to join her in the race to their possible escape was just as trapped as she was, being sucked into a potentially horrible death of suffocation.]


[Something whizzed by her head, air hissing as it went past, grabbing with her good arm to whatever the offending thing was.]

An arm??? [And then an idea hit her. Turning to look at the other woman, she gave a whistle and then tossed the extended arm her way.] Catch! Use it to get out of the quicksand! And you! [At which point she then points to the boy with wings] Help her out of the sand and then get that pend-

[And there went that idea. The sand had successfully beaten her to the floating green gem, which left them SOL. To make matters worse, the ground had begun to shake and, much to her dismay, did nothing to stop the sand from reaching the middle of her thighs. That she would figure out on her own. So long as the others kept back an -

That voice! Oh no... Her stomach dropped as she turned, fearing that her suspicions would be realized. Which, unfortunately, they were.]

Shion! Its fine! Just keep back for now!
notastain: (Wait what?)


[personal profile] notastain 2013-03-23 01:12 am (UTC)(link)
[Pit tried to keep up his hopping routine, but with how quickly the sand was picking up, it was proving futile; he was light on his feet, but unfortunately with all the floor ice cream he's eaten, not that light. It's not long before he's sinking too, fumbling to try and get out of it, wings flapping as if that was going to help.]

W-woah! Not cool, this is not cool!
savedbyasong: (whaaa)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2013-03-24 11:06 am (UTC)(link)
[He really was trying, but keeping back seemed to be no longer an option and soon he was sinking into the sand as well.]
dark_world2: ([02] Sould Beast: Seele Molgera)

[personal profile] dark_world2 2013-04-02 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Following this there would be a five second calm--

Then suddenly a gargantuan sand worm would erupt from the sand in the center of the room and fly around this floor: Soul Beast: Seele Molgera. Trying to attack Molgera as it was flying around the room would have no effect. However as the beast was no longer in contact with the sand, they could realize the sand was normal, meaning they coudl easilly get away from the room's center and avoid the quicksands.

However before long Molgera would dive back into the sand and disappear. At the center where he dove, a sand whirlpool would create, the quicksands now drawing everyone toward the center of the room with more strength than the quicksands from before. ]
notastain: (Don't get in my way!)

[personal profile] notastain 2013-04-03 12:21 am (UTC)(link)

[Pit took advantage of the stilled sand, digging himself out and struggling to get away from the center before it started up again. Man, this was so not fair; he missed out on the Gamecube! He doesn't know this one!]

[If there were ever a contest to become the poster child for what it would look like if you sent a human being through a washboard after being lacerated by a machine-gun that shot syringes at high-velocity, Luffy would take the prize.

Even after being taken through the ringer, Luffy was still standing on both feet, the grin gone from his lips as he entered the sand-filled room. His eyesight wasn't hindered, and he immediately focused upon the floating pendant. His toes curled, his fists cracked from over-useage, his body aching from the onslaught of the previous floors.]


[He stood silent, merely staring at the lingering pendant for what seemed like an eternity in a few fleeting seconds. He wasn't the most wise when it came to these sorts of incidents, never truly looking before leaping, but he felt the turbulence more so than ever. His bones, the hairs on the back of his neck rising. Whether it was adrenaline or not wasn't his concern, but calling out to whatever was waiting for him to move toward the precious item was.]

"Come out and fight me. I don't know what you are, why you're doing this, or how.. I don't give a damn about any of that!"

[It would set him back a number of months. He knew the risk, and he was ready to pay the price. As his skin turned a deep hue of pink, and as the smoke rose off of his flesh, Luffy knew that one thing was for certain; it was now or never.]

"The only thing I care about is kicking your ass! I WON'T BACK DOWN, I WON'T RUN AWAY! SHOW YOURSELF! SHOW YOURSELF AND FIGHT ME!!"

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2013-03-07 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
[There comes a chuckle from all sides, though nobody is visible.]

Aren't you just the angriest little thing? I wouldn't look so tough, child!

[The voice - the same one that could be heard back in the forest - gives a cruel laugh, one that's grating and on-edge. When Richtofen speaks again, his tone is laced with disdain.]

But then, I suppose that's why you're in the courage dungeon, hm?

[His tone shifts, and now he seems to be talking to everyone who has made their way this far.]

So, how were your battles, everyone? I thought they were very entertaining, myself. You all looked so wunderbar attempting to hurt yourselves, oh, it was funny!
gomu_ningen: Angry/Screaming (Angry/Screaming)

[personal profile] gomu_ningen 2013-03-07 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[His words aren't angry, they don't raise any louder than a casual indoor voice. His speech is like that of a disappointed parent scolding their child with stern words.]

"You just goin' to keep talkin' or are you going to come out here so I can jam my foot so far up your ass that you'll be tasting nothing but toes for the rest of your life?"

[He remains standing in the doorway, his eyes still fixated upon the pendant. The only other echo is that of a few droplets of blood falling to the floor from his limbs.]

"I don't care what you do to me, but if you hurt Colette I swear you're going to regret ever messing with my friends. Now show yourself. Now."

[ While the discussion between he and Richtofen happened, Luffy could see afar from his position what was happening to Elena and Ishtar--
