Orochi's pocket realm

A pocket realm created by Rhias long ago, now inhabited by her student, Orochi.

Orochi has turned a major part of this small realm into a large manor-like building, containing many libraries, magical artifacts. Every room has a use for Orochi, only one room ever goes unused. One belonging to Rhias herself, long ago.

Orochi appears outside with Arachnia, she walks inside, removing her labcoat.

I'll make somewhere for you to put your things and assign a construct to you, ask it where to find the room and anything you need.
Who

She seems rather impressed, looking around and taking it all in.

"What are you?"
Metakirb

Me? I'm Orochi Kushinada. Chosen student of Rhias, the true crystal guardian. As for what I am, I'm just a regular human being who worked hard and earned every last drop of my power.
Who

"The Crystal what?"
Metakirb

Wow, really? You knew she was a goddess but nothing more? Hand your stuff to the contruct and follow me.
Who

She nods, handing over the stuff and motioning for her to lead the way.
Metakirb

She leads her into one of the libraries, this one is packed with information around the guardians compiled over hundreds of thousands of years. She walks over to one shelf and picks out one specifically on the Crystal guardian and puts it down by Arachnia.
Who

She pretty much just skims it, she gets the gist anyway.

"Interesting."
Metakirb

Rhias, the real one, was my teacher.
Who

"And what do you want to do with her replacement?"
Metakirb

I intend to return Rhias' powers to her, so probably kill her.
Who

"Just leave the killing to me."
Metakirb

Just hold off on that a little. Goddess or no, she's still just a little girl. If I can't work out how to split her from her power, then you can go all murder on her.
Who

"No, we kill her either way."
Metakirb

She's a young girl. She's not dying unless she has to.
Who

"She's not, she's a bundle of divine power that happens to look like one."
Metakirb

She's a fifteen year old girl who was given her power at about the age of five, without any input on it from her at all.
Who

"I don't care. She's dead either way."
Metakirb

Killing her right now won't get you anywhere.
Who

"It will if I do it right."
Metakirb

You need her power, correct?
Who

"I need her sacrifice."
Metakirb

Right now, sacrificing her would be the same as sacrificing any regular person. Her power is in her realm.
Who

"Then how do we make her get it?"
Metakirb

I need to work that out.
Who

"Well get to work then!"
Metakirb

Orochi raises an eyebrow.

Ordering me?
Who

"Well why aren't you doing anything?!"
Metakirb

Because I don't take orders from you and do things at my own pace. Feel free to explore or ask that construct i assigned to you to show you where anything is.

She gets up and heads out.
Who

Arachnia sighs and turns to the construct.

"Right, may as well give me the tour."
Metakirb

She'll get shown around, every room seems to have a purpose, she'll get shown past a kind of prison room, but not shown inside.
Who

"Hey, what's in there."
Metakirb

The construct doesn't say anything, she can tell it to stop and check.
Who

"Hey, what's in there?"
Metakirb

it doesn't reply. It doesn't look like it can.
Who

In that case she moves to open the door.
Metakirb

It's unlocked, inside is an angel woman, chained to the wall.
Who

Well...that's odd. Arachnia'll follow the construct for the rest of the 'tour before seeking out Orochi.
Metakirb

Orochi appears to be enjoying a bath.
Who

In that case she may as well leave her be for the time being and goes to set up a shrine to her goddess in a spare room.
Metakirb

She won't be disturbed.
Who

After constructing her shrine and offering a lengthy prayer to Lolth she goes to find Orochi once more.
Metakirb

This time Orochi appears to be practicing with her sword.
Who

"You have a prisoner?"
Metakirb

Yeah. Her name's Leukor. She's an angel, and I just need to talk to her.
Who

"Right, mind if I kill her when you're done?"
Metakirb

One track mind aren't you? She's cybernetic, you probably wouldn't get what you need.
Who

"I know, my queen enjoys a sacrifice none the less."
Metakirb

I'll find you something to sacrifice later.
Who

"What sort of sacrifice?"
Metakirb

I don't know. Somebody you can kill.
Who

"Good. She will not tolerate the sacrifice of non-sentient beings in Her name."
Metakirb

Of course she won't.
Who

Arachnia glares, her hand resting on the dagger under her clothes

"You wont use that tone talking about the Spider Queen."
Metakirb

Really? You want to go there?

Orochi leans on her greatsword.
Who

"You'll give her the respect she deserves."
Metakirb

Or what?
Who

Her gaze narrows as she draws her dagger.

"Or I'll make you."
Metakirb

You'll make me? The only thing you'll make me do is laugh at how out of your depth you are.
Who

She draws the dagger and charges towards Orochi. No one talks to her like that!
Metakirb

Orochi grabs her sword and brings it up infront of her, holding it diagonally across her body in a reverse grip.
Who

Arachnia charges forward, trying to duck under Orochi's guard and slash at her with her envenomed blade.
Metakirb

Orochi moves swiftly to the side and swings her greatsword across at Arachnia's head, shifting her grip on it to a regular grip.
Who

Arachnia ducks down, trying to sweep a leg out and trip her.
Metakirb

Orochi jumps back, then forward, swinging her sword overhead at Arachnia.
Who

Arachnia steps to the side to avoid her sword, slashing at Orochi's arm with her blade.
Metakirb

Orochi rolls aside, though the blade grazes her arm.
Who

Arachnia dodges back, waiting for the potent spider venom coating her blade to take effect.
Metakirb

Orochi throws the metal snake head weapon she has, it extends into a chain and tries to wrap around Arachnia before the poison kicks in.
Who

Shocked

Well that came out of left field, surprised as she is Arachnia is entangled by Orochi's surprise weapon, struggling against the chain to break free.
Metakirb

Arachnia's going to have a hard time breaking free, it's an incredibly strong chain. Orochi on the other hand collapses as the poison kicks in.
Who

Well looks like that's going to give her time to get out of the chain binding her then.
Metakirb

It'll be very difficult, but doable.
Who

Splendid! Arachnia walks over to Orochi once she's free, attempting to kneel down next to her and hold her dagger to Orochi's throat.
Metakirb

Orochi appears to still be paralyzed.
Who

"What was that you were saying about me being out of my depth? You're lucky I still need you to obtain the godling for sacrifice."
Metakirb

Nothing from Orochi.
Who

She moves to make a mark on her face, nothing that's going to leave any lasting damage, she needs her after all. Equally though she doesn't want her to forget this.
Metakirb

As soon as the mark is made it fades away.
Who

She shrugs, walking away to head back to her shrine and pray.
Metakirb

Orochi gets up as soon as she's gone, walking over to retrieve the metal snake head.

Was that all she had?
Who

Crazy woman, talking to herself. Then again Arachnia's no better, she's chanting at a statue right now.
Metakirb

Orochi wanders off to read.
Obscurejones

Jared tries to appear and look for Luekor.
Metakirb

He'll appear just outside the room she's in.
Obscurejones

He knocks.  Insistently.
Metakirb

No response from inside, though someone walks up behind him.
Obscurejones

He knocks again, grumbling under his breath.   A tendril of ooze lashes out of his jacket at whoever it is behind him.
Metakirb

Knocking appears to be getting him nowhere.

The person behind him avoids the tendril with minimum required effort.

You want the mechanical girl?
Obscurejones

I'd like to speak to her.  Bored.
Metakirb

Hope you can fix her then.

Orochi throws a key to him.
Obscurejones

He nods and unlocks the door.  Walks in.
Metakirb

There's Leukor, chained to the wall on the other side of the room, looking very battered and broken, several wires and parts lying across the floor around her.
Obscurejones

Jared glares at the world in general and goes to give Luekor a cursory examination.
Metakirb

Alot of the damage is superficial, but some wires are going to need reconnecting before she's able to do anything.
Obscurejones

He looks for other damage to repair before he repairs her ability to move.  No need for her to wriggle around.
Metakirb

The damage is pretty much limited to her ability to be activated, he could probably rip out a few more wires if he really doesn't want her moving.
Obscurejones

He frowns and connects the wires.
Metakirb

She starts up, looking around in a bit of a panic.
Obscurejones

He waves.
Feeling alright?  You were disconnected.  Everything working?
