    Re: Terror in Old Edo!

    It would take them twenty minutes to make their away across the winding path towards the forest, the scenery at first serene, until they neared the end where they'd come across what seemed a broken down road sign to what was likely at one point a quaint little woods town outside of the forest. "It's terrible...." Tachi said sadly as the entered the hamlet, "This place used to be so bustling and full of happy kitsune and other magical creatures who were able to go in and out of the human settlement to get things for themselves; for those who weren't afraid to venture out into human areas. Now it's basically a ghost town.... all the shops are boarded up...." As they would pass the closed shops they would hear a rattling noise, if they ventured to search, they would find a pair of skeletons standing outside of the boarded up temple. If they wished to enter or investigate the building they would have to contend with the undead sentries standing guard.......

    Perfection is humanly impossible. The more you reach for it the farther away it grows. Failure is inherited to our species as a whole. But punishing ourselves and beating ourselves up for it helps nothing. The best any decent person can do is try, and try, and try again. And try to get better little by little day by day.

      “Miss Sakuya…” Ritsuko herself was feeling a bit threatened by the sight, the mere sight of the ghost town sending a bit of dread to the ever stoic maid, “Everyone… be careful.”

      Her sense of dread grew by a lot the prospect of a fight drew near. Not because she had to fight, but because their mistress was there. If she saw them fail was something Ritsuko didn’t want but there was a worse fear in her mind… if their mistress fell because of them…

      The maid breathed deeply, trying to calm herself as they looked at the unnatural sentries posted there. Seemed the group would be deciding if they wanted to check out the place or not… so she spoke her stance clearly. “Whatever the group decides… I’ll follow.”

        The blonde elf was having a great time, looking each inch of the forest really starting to forget any fear, as they havent found any dangerous creature, the time to reach the town come. Aria awe in surprise of find so well builded town, she was expecting something more natural like a cave or a most hidden town between the mountains. Well, maybe they are hidden in a safer place, please dont worry miss Tachi, i bet than all are fine she add trying to calm the whole group, as they continue walking for a while.

        After a moment, a strange noise take them to a place where two strange squeletons looks to be guarding a place. Do you know them Miss tachi? Maybe these town guards know where are the townpeople

          "Either that or someone opened the old front gate. I think being re-animated towns folk might be the better of those two really." Komma said as she looked at the two skeletons, twirling her chainsaw katana around her. Looking rather eager for a fight (though she wouldn't admit that she wasn't actually great at fighting, not bad either though).

          "Regardless its probably best to lay them to rest rather then let them sit around here don't you think?"

            Yumiko was a little torn as to how to treat the undead guards. Unless they were willing, undeath was normally a torment for ones soul and being brought back to life was a worse curse then anything. As such, she had to voice her opinion. "If I know anything about death, which isn't all that much, undeath might not be the best condition for these two. I say we put them down peacefully and allow them to rest properly. It isn't natural."

              The mistress was silent for a good few moments as the maids began speaking, discussing on how best to handle the situation, before finally speaking out, "Either way, I would advise we exercise caution. However, I seriously doubt those two are natural or friendly. This whole place seems to be under siege and I am getting an otherworldly vibe to it that I didn't use to on the few times I ventured near here. Miss Yumiko, do you feel like you can get a clean shot at at least one of them? Ritsuko, she won't be able to finish both of them at once, so you may want to prepare to use your powers to repel the other. After that we must proceed slowly and even more carefully, I doubt that they're alone...." She said before looking to the tanuki, "Miss Tachi, stay behind us." "......Okay...." the tanuki whispered softly with baited breath...

                “Understood.” Ritsuko replied curtly at her mistress’ orders, concentrating her attention at the 2 unnatural skeletons that guarded the place. “I’ll take care of one of them.” She said, feeling her mind psyched up and ready for the task.

                “After you.” She said as she glanced for a moment at the gunwoman on the group, whether Yumiko missed her mark or not, the silent maid would fulfill her task, tackling the other skeleton to clear the way. Her mind deviated for a moment, though; as she watched the place… perhaps there was an object out there she could use to heighten the probabilities of wiping out her target? Perhaps even both?

                (Is there a chance I can use Intelligence for this? If not just the appropriate stat for attacking.)

                  With the sudden tactic to take down the unknown old people of this unknown town, Adria just shrugged her head for a moment and make a little sigh bafore prepare herself to use her weapon to defend anyone if possible, ready to place her self at the front of the others once the attacks of the maids had ended and the corpses were close enough of them to make distance attacks.

                  My Mistress, I... i really dont had wounded someone, but i will try my best to repel them if all goes wrong. Answer Adria who knows than she could have problems defending someone else than is not her, as the training giving to her has made her invulnerable to the pain and tireness at battle, but she really is unable to hurt even her foes.

                    "I will do as you ask, Mistress. If my luck holds and the wind is good, I should be able to take them out in one shot each. But for now, I will focus on one of them. May my aim be true!" She said with enthusiasm as she took aim at one of the skeletons. She stood completely still and slowed her breathing. She aimed down the iron sights of her weapon, knowing her weapon was loaded and ready. With one of the skeletons heads in her sights, she gently squeezes the trigger, the rifle making a loud 'bang' as she fired.

                    (Use Skill to make the shot. If not, use strength.)

                      Revving up the engine on her chain-katana Komma took up a defensive stance, seemed the mistress wanted her to keep the skeletons from reaching Ritz and Yumiko, the boom of the elf's musket drowning out the roar of her weapon for a moment, now she watched and waited to see what the skeletons would do.
