Cammie arrived just in time to see her companions, err, packing up in a way. She patiently waited for the fledgling conflict to completely de-escalate, then followed her companions back the way they came.

As soon as she couldn't hear the drill rig anymore, Camelia spoke up in a hushed tone. "No can do, Dawn. I went to the elevator and was able to contact our employer, told him about the offshoot. He basically told me off and that that's not why we were here, that they'd send guys in due time. So unless you want to deal with him, stick to, and I quote, 'assisting him in providing a third-party analysis to these horrible accidents, nothing more.'" She wasn't exactly angry when she spoke about it, but a keen ear would've spotted the displeasure.

After a moment passed, Camelia glanced something move through the barrier of trees. She wasn't quite sure what it'd been - a metallic glint, followed by a large, dark speck before it vanished from view. Whatever the metal was, though, was also definitely in the hands of the opponent.

Well, he was doing something so as far as she was concerned, her strategy was still viable. She could still wait. ...For now.

Maena had received the message. Yes, it warned the recipient that death was a very real possibility. However, Maena had yet to face and was also completely free for the time being. This was a better opportunity to increase her skills as a Huntress than anything else she'd seen posted anywhere, so she was taking it up.

Soon enough, she was at the safe house's coordinates, all her supplies brought with her, plus a few extras - a hat, a waterproof cloak, another cloak that's meant to protect from the sun rather than the rain. She wasn't the first to arrive, though, so quickly walked next to the others already present. She entirely failed to notice the abnormal number of animals in her vicinity.

Why do you people keep asking these questions I don't have an answer to

The girl(?) started practicing again, swords coming and going. The chains followed suit after a small while, less jabbing like before and more swinging, much like Anna herself did when she attempted to wrap her own chains around an opponent.

...Again, there it was! Some sort of low, barely heard  hum was coming from the swords! It felt odd somehow, like the noise didn't actually belong to the metal constructs. But suddenly, one of the chains veered off course and wrapped around its owner's right hand, seemingly against her(?) will as the practice seemed to come to an early end.

As the swings abided, the low hum was replaced by a soft, high-pitched series of much more audible harmonics that again seemed to defy the material they emanated from. What wa-

Anna's train of thought brutally crashed to a halt as the person made a turnabout, ripping an almost silent "Eep!" out of Anna's mouth. Her semblance stopped and she withdrew slightly, head pointing down to hide her face behind her locks of hair. Oh gods, oh gods, she'd seen her. What would she do now? What should she do now?

Gingerly, Anna pressed herself against the door to make it open a tiny bit more then puled her semblance. The girl - for her face was definitely feminine - stood there staring, a curious look on her face. In the meantime, Anna stood there for several seconds, mind and body frozen.

Anna was roaming the corridors of Beacon, looking for a good place to train. That's right. For once, she wasn't going to hole herself up in the library for the entire day. She was going to practice.

Not that she really needed it, what with her semblance and all, but there were some things she wanted to work out too. Throwing knives, generally refining her skill at manipulating her chains and, first and foremost, trying out the idea she'd had after the switcheroo. Mauve's weapons had been brutally efficient for her. This is why she was quietly walking forward with two 2-foot long steel plates in her arms, although her chains jingled a bit around her armored forearms every now and then.

As she was stepping past an ever-so-slightly ajar door, the clangs emanating from within stopped before turning into some loud, nightmarish screeching the likes of which she had never heard before. Not exactly knowing if something was wrong or not, she rested her head on the door and used her semblance's second stage. Even like this, her field of vision to the inside was rather small, but she was clearly able to see a small, possibly? feminine figure using chains coming out of her back to assault a helpless wooden dummy.

Now yes, chains coming out of someone's back were a mildly odd sight to witness, but the weirder thing to Anna was the chains themselves. They weren't just rattling, it was like the chains were emitting another, entirely different sound that she just could not quite put her finger on. The odd sound faded, though, leaving her to 'look' in wonder as to what exactly that had been.

As Camelia kept walking, she rapidly started to glance the other side of the arena between the trees. Barely. She couldn't really make out what the environment was, but there were trees.

Now, what would she do? Keep going forward or stay still and wait for them? On the one hand, the trees provided some cover but that rapidly diminished as the distance closed, not to mention they'd hinder direct combat. On the other hand, moving outside basically meant she'd turn herself into a sitting duck (with a shield) to anyone out there. Not to mention she knew nothing of the lay of the land beyond what she could see.

Deciding to take the second option, Camelia crouched behind her shield, keeping her sword in hand. The only thing that could be seen from the other side of Orion was her head going from the bridge of her nose and up.

The first thing Nathan had done upon entering the event was hold in his instincts and stride directly towards the large 'RAFFLE'-indicating sign, wrote his name on a slip of paper and unceremoniously deposited it in the tumbling contraption. Afterwards, though, he let loose and meticulously inspected every sign, item, exposition and other that fell under his gaze.

While the things that usually interested him - materials research and weapons research, namely - weren't exactly all that advanced, he still took the time to read through all the blurbs an look at all the objects that were on display. That being said, he was through with them relatively quickly owning to their small numbers.

That doesn't mean he didn't enjoy the main attraction, though. Nathan had little, if any, experience either working on or with prosthetics, never mind researching them. Thus he learned of many, many, many things, absorbing the knowledge so graciously provided like a dry sponge soaks up water. He gave a go to the exhibits he could fumble with and happily questioned the demonstrators as to the prosthetics' capabilities, operation, feeling and any possible hindrances, from sleeping on your back to taking a shower. Seldom did his eyes look so bright and alive.

Alas, even that much had its limits - after several hours, he'd exhausted all he could do short of the 'queries/hunters' booth. As he approached it, the line for queries stretching for about a dozen people, he headed to the hunters side and waited a respectable distance from the guy already there - seemingly about the same age as he was, named Smokey Emberstone from what he overheard.

I have quite honestly no idea.

Alright! Time to get back into the action. It felt like forever since Camelia had... um, well, let's say 'since the last battle'. It'd been remarkably more tame than the destructive bout against Sam, since once she got her opponent in a gravity field, they'd basically just collapsed onto the ground and decided to surrender instead of getting jabbed with a sword until their Aura dropped enough.

Taking Orion out with her left hand and half of Unity with her right, she carefully began to step forward between the quite decent trunks. Nothing you could hide behind, but definitely mature trees. There was little underbrush as well, making her think that this was a curated forest rather than a natural one - not that that actually meant anything. It was a tournament environment. Those trees might be 3D printed for all she knew.

While the Sun didn't directly reach the forest floor, enough light went through the leaves to allow for clear vision. As she moved, she kept her eyes and ears alert - she had no idea what she was up against. Quietly, in the honestly quite relaxing surroundings, her thoughts died down until nothing but awareness remained.

Handedness of my chars in order of signature (unlinked or uncoloured names not counted):
L, R, L, R, R, A, R, L, R and finally Mark with R.

I've literally never thought about the combat implications until this moment but I can't really find anything it affects.

ToD, hmmm? Yeah, that could work. Short and straight-to-the-point, universal, had the merit of allowing others to choose whether or not to respond. "Sure, I'm up for Truth or Dare. Not gonna be asking questions, though."

Is that a question about the V4 board as of now or how it originally was?

I'll shove in Maena. She hasn't exactly been getting much action lately, sadly enough.
