Next 629

Hidden deep within the Alps lies a long forgotten canyon. Only a few ancient scrolls and mystical tablets tell of its location. Surrounded on all sides by the titanic peaks of vast mountains it has remained isolated for century after century. Massive storms drive away aircraft and protect against satellite imagery. Its lethal inhabitants stave off most unwanted visitors.

The site is known to the Arcani as the legendary Nest 629. Home to several of the most radical Strigidae, occasional resting place to Asteria and her ilk, and weak point in the fabric of the universe; entry into the Astral plane is much easier here.

Courtyard

Here the Orochi clan takes up residence, due to their ancient alliance with the Arcani they act as caretakers and guards. 629 offers them a refuge against their enemies and a safe place to lay their heads. In exchange they protect the neigh priceless location from outsiders.

Orochi Clan

Dozens of Orochi shinobi live and train her; the harsh environment of the Alps provides the perfect surroundings in which to forge hardened warriors while the isolation allows them to train their deadly techniques in peace.

Dojo

Hidden techniques are passed from grandmaster to master, from master to disciple in these silent halls. Asteria herself trains here, instructing her handpicked pupil's inside these halls and hurling great bolts of lightning with her lightning bending Yoso style.

Preternatural Strigidae clash for rank, during these contests all outsiders are forbidden under pain of death to protect secret techniques from prying eyes; though great study is dedicated to the pattern of bloody footprints after the fact. It is said two of the Orochi's secret strikes were discovered by this method.

Rules:
Its not as strict as Gothic but I'd prefer to avoid Superman tier powerhouses.
If you come here to battle that's fine, but remember to sell or I will be forced to ask you to leave.

I was about to come and destroy your base, but then I caught wind of The Asteria Plane.

No way I'm going near that.

@arquitenens: You're more than qualified to destroy...things.

@strigidae_23: (Okay...I'll stick to H2H - Count this as my leaving beat-up gift :P)

The recent acquisition of an Arcani Intelligence Computer led to the fortunate discovery of this mystical, long forgotten combat orientated Dojo.

Being home to the most iconic and radical Strigidae it is only custom Myrmidon would soon visit, indeed, Myrmidon was soon going into hiding yet he found pleasure in combating such martial art marvels of the Arcani and decided a quick trip and attack upon the Nest would be a fun and challenging experience. He may even kill one or two. Finding the location was not that hard due to having information previously, the journey towards of this mountainous location however was hazardous but one who can survive the trip to Reisho can survive a trip to this Nest, clad in his usual attire iconic to the Myrmidon he simply strolled into the courtyard, undoubtedly he'd be recognized as a threat immediately.

@myrmidon_:

"Myrmidon."

Ivana stood in the center of the courtyard. Rainwater pooled under her feet and trickled through the grooves in the cobblestones. Golden trim glittered against the ebony of her armor. A helmet lay in her hands, strong fingers cradling the priceless artifact.

Scouts had warned her of his approach. The Orochi were prepared, red clan shinobi dotting the rooftops like drops of blood against the sapphire sky.

The 23rd stared at the red mask of their ancient enemy for a long time. Then she spoke.

"Are you so weary of life that you would come to this place?"

Also, that pic looks like someone slapped her really hard. Or burned her face with his/her hand.

@strigidae_23:

His face turning as he swept the area his studious eyes slowly locking onto the figures surrounding his position, creating a silhouette of red to contrast the sky. His gaze than averted back towards of Ivana.

His hands slowly retracting backwards, pulling out his Blades of Division before placing them onto the ground with a respectful bow, not coming up just yet as he peered towards of the wet ground his back bent, the rain drops pelting his back rhythmically massaging it "strigidae - I challenge you" He looked up back his arms taking up a simple boxing stance, his right foot first "Me Vs You - No weapons, no abilities, pure martial arts" He awaited a response.

@arquitenens: Either or. Maya got killed by Electra and anyone who dies to a jobber loses like ten billion cool points. Plus she has the same power as Taskmaster. Grrr. F you marvel.

Look wise, I don't know, this sounds bad but I prefer Caucasian looks for my characters.

@strigidae_23: GASP! You r-....I'm kidding. There'll be enough of that.

They killed her already? Elektra's a jobber? Huh.

@arquitenens: :-P I'll probably have to delete that lol. But if I had any photoshop skills she would have a different out of costume look.

Yeah, she actually died twice. Once to Elektra, then again to someone else. And yeah, Elektra exists to job for Daredevil and his villains. I swear she's one of the least effective martial artists in Marvel; back in the Dane Battle Challenges she use to get priced at like one to three points and even then no one would take her.

Ivana's eyes fell upon him, impassive. Her voice filled the courtyard, "I accept." She removed her blade, her bow and her utility belt, placing them upon the ground behind her. Her helmet slipped back over her face and sealed around her neck. Raw information scrolled down the display as she stepped forward, slipping into an ancient Arcani stance.
