(OOC: Yay people are posting again....I'm guessing Illeana's AFK for a while huh?)

Umuku looked at Xenophobia then at Surv, Umuku smiles and relaxes a bit. "Heheheheheheheheh, ah, *Sigh*, I guess we both want to live to see another day. Allow me to, disarm, first." Said Umuku as he compressed the fireball in between his hands, until it blinked out of existence. "Now, *Relaxes arms to his sides* What is that?*Points to thing Surv drove.* How does it move? AND, would you be willing to take us to our appointed destinations, for payment?" Said Umuku slyly.

((OOC: Sorry! I haven't had a chance to get online for a while. Only reason I've managed to get online now is because I bought internet while I wait for my flight at the airport (I have two hours before it comes in and I get to board.) I've been really busy. >.<))

Illeana listened calmly to everything that Umuku had to say to her. She was about to reply when the...wait, Velociraptor? She did a double take and then decided that she wouldn't question it. She kept herself quiet, letting her claws come out and her eyes go a glowing amber as the weapons were raised. She hated fighting, but if defending these people got her what she needed, then she'd fight all that she had to. As they decided to lower their weapons, she lowered her claws and let them go back to normal, but her eyes stayed glowing amber, a sign that she wasn't far off from full transformation. She looked at Umuku and answered his question about the car before Ace got a chance.

"That's a car. It's used to get from point A to point B. It's faster than a lot of the older ways, though still not really that necessary."

She said not even trying to hide her dislike of newer technologies. She didn't know why, but she got a chill up her spine at the way Umuku mentioned the destination and payment.

"I suppose it couldn't hurt, might help me track down some of my old cohorts and find out what happened here" Ace responded as he holstered his weapon. "I've got a couple of weeks before I have to report back to duty anyway.  And not necessary?  You try traveling a thousand miles in a day without one."

(OOC: BUMP POST!)

Good, Anyways. And with my telekinetic ability, I can increase my endurance and speed by moving my legs. Plus my shoes...

Xenophobia clenches a hand into a fist, rising into the air, shoes pulsating fire and flames.

Anti-Gravity/Rocket Plates. They allow me to do many Video Game-esqe techniques, like jumping while midair. Combine my telekinesis and my shoes, I can cross thousands of miles within a span of a day depending on the weather and where exactly I land to run.

Ace removed his gas mask and helmet but kept the flak vest and the rest of the gear in place.

"Man I hate breathing in that thing, so before we take off, might I ask exactly what the nature of this little venture is?  And for the record, it moves by burning gasoline in a compression cylinder which ultimately rotates the driveshaft, and the gearbox takes the rotation of the driveshaft and applies power to the wheels. And before we take off I'm going to need to get more of.  I propose stopping by the old SCP station and seeing if my access codes still work, as there should be fuel there, and maybe find out what happened to this place.  There's four of us, and this thing seats five, so who want's to get a move on?"

"I do, To the horseless carriage, also known as a 'car'. Take us to this place that Surv mentioned oh creature of metal." Said Umuku as he headed over to the 'car'. As he walked towards it, "Surv, This little venture your 'car' is going to take us on is going to be one of learning. Seeing as I am in need of learning the skills of Xenophobia and Illeana." He raised his right hand in the air doing some sort of gesture with it. A bird cawed and flew from one of the buildings, landing on Umuku's shoulder. Umuku reached the vehicle and turned towards the three of them.

"I am telling you now though, I am not, a good person. Upon arrival to our first destination, I will tell Xenophobia what he is to retrieve from the guild of thieves we are going to. The two of you are welcome to help him in any way. Just don't expect much, *sigh* trouble to come from this." Umuku chuckles a little bit. "I will tell you all a little more about the guild of thieves though. They are, were, fanatical worshipers of Olidimarra, the god, or goddess, of thieves. They will steal anything and everything for the right price. I once had them steal a grand jewel for me, an orb, wouldn't be surprised if it's been stolen by them or some, hero out on a quest or something. *sigh* Ah, Orb of Dragonkind, I believe it was red, might have been black. Don't quite remember what that book said it was. Any way, that will be our first stop, I will direct you to it.........Surv, do you have a map or graph showing the lay of the land with you, I'd like to look at it while we go get, fuel was it, for your 'car'. Never going to get used to that word." Said Umuku as he stood by the door looking at it, trying to figure out how to get into the 'car'.

(OOC: Yes, I'm going to use quotations for the word car when ever Umuku uses it in this RP. It's a word that is foreign to him, it will take some time for him to even get used to saying it. as well as some of the things that Surv said, any who. Let's get this show on the road, To The GAS STATION!)

"You thought the car was amazing then you're going to love this, get in"

Ace opens the passenger side door for fear that Umuku would've broken something trying it himself, and then proceeds to enter the drivers side and activates the GPS that is suction cupped to the inside of his windshield.

"This little device can tell us where we are, where we're going, how to get there, and what's nearby.  I'll just need either an address, or a latitude and longitude."

Umuku is amazed to see the little square thing on the invisible barrier light up. "What type of magic is this?! It's like nothing I've ever seen before." It takes Umuku a few moments to realize what Ace had said. "Um, 'address', 'Latitude and longitude'? I studied the scrolls of provectus paludis Monasteriense, I'm only going to say this once, and only once, I don't know what your talking about!" Said Umuku kind of flustered at that. He then brings out the map he had rolled up in his sleeve, He unrolls it and shows it to Ace. "I want us to go here *points to a spot on the map, an area in the middle of a forest, looks to be a small village there.* This is the area I want to go to. After we get 'fuel' for your 'car', Also, I must admit, this seat is comfortable, what is it made out of?" Said Umuku curiously to Ace as he sat down in it.

As he doesn't technically have eyebrows, Ace cannot do the eyebrow raise, this does not prevent him from of course trying.

"Brilliant, just like a land nav on a training day.  Oh and by the way, Latitude and longitude are the Cartesian Coordinate system that encircles the entire planet.  If you know the latitude and longitude of where you are, and where you want to go, you can establish your bearings and set a heading."

It takes Ace a few minutes to gauge approximate distances and orientations of the map to their current location.

"Alright, this should be accurate to within a couple of miles, and for the record it's made of cloth, aluminum, plastic, and foam.  Now just relax what's about to happen is normal"

Ace pops the seat forward so that the other two can get into the back seat.

"Interesting, very interesting." Said Umuku as he watches Ace do what he did, he then looks over to Xenophobia and Illeana "Are you two coming, since Surv has allowed us use of his 'car', our trip will go much faster. Seeing as you all have been telling me that this thing will go much faster than a spectral steed. Any who, come, let us go to our first destination, the place of your *Points to Xenophobia* appointed trial." Said Umuku with an evil grin on his face.

Illeana climbed into the backseat and mumbled something to herself.

"Oh it'll go faster alright. Just try to not kill us, eh?" she said to Surv, patting him on the shoulder before ducking in and buckling up.

"This outta' be interesting."

"One more to go" Said ace as he idly glanced at his gauges, as it wasn't moving the turbocharger wasn't registering anything, the gas gauge was sitting 3/4 tank, and he did always keep a spare 2 gallon jug for emergencies.  They should be fine, no need to keep the guy from his business.  Something in the back of his mind told him that this was more than just a "Holiday" and even his command knew it.

Xeno sighs and gently floats into the vehicle, landing with a slight plop against the seat.

Let's go.

Ace leans the seat back to it's normal position, buckles in, and starts the engine which roars to life, he barely gives it a chance to idle back down before putting it in gear and taking of in the direction indicated by his GPS in conjunction with Umuku's map.


"If you don't mind my asking, Illeana, what is it that you dislike or think is unnecessary about a car?"

(OOC: as our dear friend 'Gale Fox' put it, BUMP POST!)

As the four of them traveled towards their appointed destination, Umuku couldn't help but wonder a few things. [What alchemical concoction did he use to make it go so fast?] Umuku looks out the window, [I know what glass is, I have a few panes of it back at the tower, but.] Umuku runs his hand along the dashboard. [What ever this is made of, is something I have no knowledge of.] Thought Umuku as he laid his hand in his lap. [What worries me more than that is, I believe that Xenophobia had said he was an 'alien', but the amount of shear power he has presented before me this day. Worries me, that he might be some rogue sorcerer in disguise. Trying to steal away my powers from me, or trying to find my tower and rob me of all it's items of power.] Umuku again looked out the window, his brow furrowing as he thought. [Also, Illeana, she seems so much like, a, tamed wild animal so to speak. Able to hide her true ferocity under a visage of peaceful actions. She may be some lackey of some other magic user, who may be also trying to steal my items of power. OR, she may have been sent to be rid of me, seeing as I am now awake, and my powers are returning.] Umuku clenched his fist and wisps of purple flame gently arose from it. He looked at his hand for a moment, watching the tiny flames dance around on his fist. He then unclenched it and the flames dissapated into nothingness. [And what of this character beside me, Surv, He, is a mystery at this moment in time, appearing with this thing, this, 'car'. Granting us passage in it towards the trials of the two behind me. I must keep an eye on him, just in case he tries to usurp me when we reach my tower. After, the trials of the two.]

"*Sigh* Soon, soon we will arive, soon your trial, Xenophobia, will begin." Mumbled Umuku to himself as he continued to look out the window, trying to remember what he had read about, about, his enemies that might still be alive in this day and age.
