Alex quickly remembered something, "Uh yeah! Hold up!" She sprinted below to a chest where she kept all of her things. Alex had sold most of her things but she did keep some stuff.Alex unlocked the chest and rummaged through some supplies. She grabbed a helmet, her old claw blades and a staff that she had taken from a treasure mound. It was very sturdy.
"Well, it looks like we're all set. Let's get going."
The group heads out, keeping low profiles & crossed the ocean. As soon as they reached land, they could see that half the land was covered with purple haze.
"Hm? What's this?" Ryuu was confused, he had never seen anything like it.
"Let's check it out."
The group went closer to the purple haze, they were 5 steps away from going into it & suddenly the purple haze moved by itself.
"What the?! Run for it!"
All of them started running but the purple haze was moving fast. Soon, the group was caught by it & now they found themselves into a whole new world.
"..........Where are we?" Ryuu looked around & the place was floating in the purple haze.
"Guys, we need to get out of here. Let's split up; Rob go North. Yuri go Left. Alex go South & I'll go West. If anyone of you find something, just report back here. If you find enemies or creatures or anything on the way, you know what to do."
All of them headed in their assigned directions.
"Hmm.. I don't see anything here.. I guess--"
Ryuu saw a weird machine glowing red. He went closer to it to see what it exactly was.
"Hmm.. I should report back."
NOTE: So, now you're on your own. It's your choice what you want to do. If you want some action too, you can post that you found the machine too.
As Rob headed north he noticed some type of machine glowing red and when he turned to leave the machine spotted him and went to attacking him, he used some kicks and punches and when that didn't work he used his his fire power and burned the machine down "This is bad, there is nothing here but more machines, I better leave before more of those come here" he said as he went back
Yuri was walking around and noticed two huge door at the other side of the room but also saw two machines guarding the doors "This could mean something better report back to the others" she said and in a flash she headed back
Alex ran south. There was nothing of great interest to her so she let her guard down slightly. That was a mistake. Not much later she came across a machine. with things guarding it. She was able to disappear before they attacked her but it was a close call for her. Alex decided she should stay invisible.
"Strange..." She looked at a compass, she was facing directly south. Then an Idea popped into her head. Quickly Alex ran West in a line until she was facing directly Southwest. There she saw another machine.
"Double strange..." Then she ran back east until she was exactly halfway between south and east (In other words, perfectly southeast) where she saw a third machine.
"Triple strange..." Without a second thought, she ran back to meet the others.
Alex dropped her invisibility. She knew her companions knew she had arrived but they couldn't see her.
"This whole place is crawling with machines. I saw a lot, almost everywhere I explored, there were machines out the wazzooooh!" Alex exclaimed. "I think we should just head to the exit. We still have an empire thing to take down and this might slow us down."
