The Axis of Glorious Retribution Day Four!
Team Axis is thankful for the quiet after the storm. The warm rays of the sun much appreciated over the howling winds of the terrible squall. Realizing that several of his teammates are in need Lightfufu wastes no time, and immediately begins problem solving.
Awakening inside the cave Stalkerfufu notices he is now completely alone, the native as left him and there is no trace of a trail. Tending to his wound Stalkerfufu successfully cleans and bandages it. The wound causes a slight amount of pain but at least he isn't injured anymore. Looking around the cave he notices that this cave isn't purely natural there is evidence that the cave walls have been worked. Using some of the embers from the fire the native left and sticks and underbrush stalkerfufu puts together a small torch and goes deeper into the cave. The deeper into the cave he goes the more the stone around him becomes worked, transforming into a hallway with imperfect 90 degree angles. Finally he reaches a arch way with two pillars carved out of the walls. A stone figurehead of a Lionphoenix carved at the top of the arch way is posed to look like it is jumping down on anyone who enters. Continuing past the archway the cave opens up into a large room with a 30 foot stone door at one end and a stone alter in the middle. All around him on the walls, ceiling and floor are pictographs of man shaped pictures worshiping the the Lionphoenix and as the pictures progress a giant bat like man creature is depicted destroying their village. The alter is stained blood but by the looks of it is very old and well preserved. In the alter is a ornamental dagger, carved with similar symbols as those around you. When you touch the blade your skin instantly frosts, it does no damage but if you had left it there it would have. There is one large symbol carved into the door and you get the distinct impression that it is a warning.
Lightfufu warms up with some katas then gives a rousing speech and heads out mounting a rescue search of stalkerfufu. Looking at the map he see's the symbol of the cave believing this to be the best place to start his search he heads south. Spending much of the day to reach the cave, Lightfufu arrives and notices the vestiges of a fire. Using his fire magic to create a torch Lightfufu heads into the cave and catches up with Stalkerfufu.
BeckyD overwhelmed by her sickness and injury spends her day laying on the ground, one of the Lizardshark cultists tends to her wounds with a "high as fuck healing salve". Suddenly she feels all better in fact not only that but manages to have a rousing conversation with one of the lizardsharks and a grasshopper. The grasshopper bounces away saying something about being late to a band practice and the lizardshark has to get back to his dark rites so that his bloodthristy god won't shred his soul and use his innards as play things. (BeckyD is now uninjured and unsickened).
The Goop takes to the jungle searching for more potent chemicals and exploring deeper into the jungle. With his small platoon of Lizardsharks he makes his way farther inland. Encountering but making quick work of Monkeyspiders and Montypythons. Chewing on the memory enhancing leaf he remembers his first day of "Defense against the Awesome arts" when his teacher saw potential in him and decided to reveal himself as a practitioner of the awesome arts and take The Goop under his wing. The Goop remembers his first spell "Fuckis Upis" a spell designed to totally fuck the enemy straight up. Towards the end of the day they come across a trail that when followed leads to a native village.
Jeremy spends the day innovating now that the forge is up and running. Jeremy creates nails and screws, bolts, saws, drills, hammers, and many other advanced tools. Now he is able to create all sorts of structures and objects. Also looking at the brown nuts that explode he comes up with a simple design for a non-lethal gun that fires the nuts. And creates one such item.
Your team ends the day with: -1 healing salve, advanced tools, frost dagger, pop nut gun.
