[WIP] Story

Post by Proxzki on Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:15 pm

In an expanse we begin in an isolated city whose electromagnetic barrier prevents ever-present gas storms from suffocating its citizens. At all times of the day there is an orange tint over it due to a star casting its light over the gaseous weather. Crime is somewhat rampant, but local law enforcement does its best to keep it in line. Recently more and more military personnel from the country's capital have been moving into the city, causing the people to become rather uncertain of its future. There have been rumors that special forces operatives have been called in, but no one knows for sure.

One such operative sits alone is a dilapidated bar on the outskirts of the city. Blood from brutal bar fights spattered on its walls and staircases. Its dim lighting reminds her of home. Across the counter the bar tend is studying her, appearing to commit her appearance and form to memory while stroking a long white beard.

Ruzia:It's impolite to stare, y'know.
Bartender: Oh, my apologies. It's just been a long time since I've seen a Volkian outside of her home town.
Ruzia:Don't have any capture glass? It'd last longer than your memory.
Bartender:Oh, you want to bring age into this? I'll have you know my memory is fine. I bet your next drink that I'll recognize that boy you rescued a while back before you do.
Ruzia:Who?
Bartender:Exactly.
Ruzia:I was kidding. He was just lucky I was entering Serabi when the storm hit. Now give me that drink.

She immediately snatches up the bottle when he has placed it on the counter, greedily taking in the contents before placing it back down half full and resting her head on the table.

Cammy comes up to the bar, wagging his tail sort of sluggishly and appearing a bit drowsy before sitting down.

Cammy: Could I have a glass of water, please? I'm so tired.

Bartender:Of course. ^ ^ *fills a glass and places it down for him* So you're tired? What's got you so exhausted?

Ruzia just blinks while drinking a bit more of her beverage.

Bartender:*eyes widen a little* You're from the depths? Well damn, no wonder. I hear it's really nice down there is you're a survival-type of guy.
Ruzia:A little dangerous for you to be up here isn't it? With the government being so suspicious and all of migrants.

Bartender:*turns to Silas* Well we've got quite a selection, you name it we've probably got it. We do get imports from the depths, which it looks like you're from too, to be honest.
Ruzia:Don't see many many bottom dwellers. Looks like a lot's gonna be going on in this city soon. We've got military coming here, drug runners and gangs, and now Moles. Go figure. *takes another drink from her bottle*
Bartender:I haven't had such a varied group here in a long time, for sure. I think you guys have driven away about a dozen prospective customers. Not that I mind, I don't do this for the money.

Ruzia:Good. So how's it going down there these days? Are there actually towns? I figure it's all just a bunch of spread out camps struggling to survive off of random fruits and vegetables.

Bartender:*to Silas* Depends on what he wants, of course.

Cammy: There are towns. A lot of your moles showed my town how to build farming equipment so the food stock of my hometown's doing better than ever with the new machines. Before, we did it by hand.

Ruzia:*talking to Cammy* Hm. Well that's nice.

The bartender sets a drink down for Bone Breaker and begins cleaning out a mug.

Bartender:Well people up here are gonna hate you up here too. You two bottom dwellers better be careful when leaving. It's not just the government that wants you guys out of the picture. Some people are just plain racist. Hell, you should be careful too, girl.

Ruzia:Heh, trust me, I'll be fine. *finishes her drink*

Ruzia:Yeah. There's a bit of a problem with that in the cities.
Bartender:Mhm. Mostly it's due to propaganda, the other racists just think they're better. It's usually not a problem cuz foreign species usually stay put in their own towns. Save for people like Ruzia here. Once her people come of age they go out and search for better opportunity. Most go into the military though.
Ruzia:That sounds about right. *eats some ice from one of her empty glasses*

A few soldiers walk in, covered in dust form the gas storm outside the city.

Soldier1:Damn it's cold out there!
Soldier2:Don't gotta tell me twice. At least some other chumps get to freeze their asses off on patrol duty. Just ain't worth minimum wage.
Soldier1:*raises his goggles as he walks up to the coutner* Hey Sammy, got any leads on some outlaws? Or at least a nice deal of the day for us?

Bartender:Always have deals Robert, but no leads today. All of'em were taken care of the Volkian here.

Soldier3:You don't say? She's not a vigilante or anything?
Bartender/Sammy:No, she's got emblems of rank, she's clear.
Soldier2:So what are you, missy?
Ruzia:-.- I'm special forces.
Soldier3:So the rumors about spec ops are true eh? You weren't supposed to tell us, right?
Ruzia:It's not a big deal. Everyone'll know eventually.

Soldier1:So, uh, Sammy. Why you got circus animals in your den?
Sammy: They're paying customers pretty much.
Soldier1:*laughs* Man, you're funny. You know they don't have any rights up here.

Could you at least show me a way back underground? Or are you just gonna be an asshole and let me die of thirst and starvation out there because my race is obviously so inferior to yours that we'd all might as well bow down to your vast superiority and suck your dicks while we're at it. *crosses his arms*

Soldier3:We're simply soldiers. Only special forces agents know how to access the Depths. Also, you've probably heard by now the government wants you all dead anyway.
Soldier1:Pretty sure we'd be assholes and let you die out there.
Soldier2:So're we gonna kill'em here and now or what?
Soldier3:That would be up to the ranking officer here.
Soldier1:You mean the girl? Shit, there's gotta be some loophole here.
Soldier2:Well, judging by her collection of bottles I'm guessing her intoxication kills her credibility.

Ruzia:>,>

Soldier1:You're all pussies, we should've already shot'im.

He pulls out and pistol, and by the time he has it centered on Cammy's head, a small knife tears it from his hand and impales it into a wall.

Ruzia:*relaxing against the counter* I might be drunk, but I can still fuck you up. If you don't wanna leave without killing them, I'll add your blood to the other spatters on the walls.

Soldier3:You can easily be indicted for murder. Even with your status. You're interfering with law enforcement.

Ruzia:I don't mind. I've dealt with trash like you back home.

The soldiers draw their weapons, and the second soldier calls for backup.

Bartender:Oh boy...*goes upstairs*
