The Curse of Power

Coke, in a marketing campaign, advertized that 6 lucky coke drinkers would find a free week long vacation for 2 to the Hawaiian Islands. The 6 bottles with the lucky caps were sent to random locations around the world. The winners are booked in the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua, Maui. What starts as a peaceful tropical escape would turn a few select individuals into the only ones capable of (what else?) saving the universe.

More than 6 people may play, just post a signup so I can approve it or tell you what you need to change. For the first 6 people who sign up you will need to give the following info

Name
Age
Nationality and Home Town
Who you brought with you (its a trip for 2 after all)
A skill you excel at
An item of your choice

You are normal people, not 20th level wizards or fighters. Death may result as a result of doing something completely stupid, but other than that you may chose to do as you will. Deformation or unfortunate mutations may result from poor sportsmanship.

The first 6 will all start out in their hotel rooms, after just having received a phone call telling them that Coke has supplied an island tour guide to take them on a tour. He will be arriving in the lobby in 30 minutes.

Re: The Curse of Power

As you enter the lobby, you notice a man wearing what must be cokes idea of a sailors outfit standing around with a clip board and the "Coca-Cola" logo on his shirt. You can see the pool from here, as well as the ocean beyond. By their standard of dress, you can tell that the people who move about with their activities of checking in and out, going to and fro, are all quite affluent. An older man wearing a golfing getup is greeting by a friend and leaves, leaving a newspaper behind. There are internet stations along one of the walls, as well as a very elaborate setup in the lobby. Plush chairs and a large plasma flat screened TV. The coke man approaches you with his clipboard, which contains picture photos of all the contest winners, along with their information.

"You must be...let's see....Remy? I'm Connor, I'll be your guide today. We'll give the other folks about 15 more minutes and then we'll get in the van and head down to the docks for the boat tour. Make yourself comfortable, but not TOO comfortable, we won't be here for long."

Re: The Curse of Power

*Remy quickly goes over to 1 of the internet stations, taking advantage of the time that he has now to check his e-mail and send some e-mails himself, knowing that he might be a while till he gets back here*

*just as Remy is busy Roy comes down the stairs as well and walks over to him, passing by the coke man on his way over*

Roy: "so, a boat tour, sounds interesting enough in these parts" (note, conversation between Roy and Remy will be in dutch unless otherwise noted)

Remy: "yep, we might get to see some of the local population and some of the animals, might be interesting"

*Remy quickly finishes up his e-mails and walks back over to the guide, 5 minutes having passed in the time it took to check his e-mails, and stands there waiting for the rest of the people to arrive*

Re: The Curse of Power

It probably would have been a good idea to vary your skills a bit, but if you want to keep those, I won't stop you. If you want to change, put it in your next post. I'll assume everyone is down in the main lobby even though only flapjack said he was. Also, any firearms will be confiscated rather quickly by authorities, so until someone says otherwise, we'll say you have nothing. I'll modd you there to speed things up.

Andy and Trisk arrive with their traveling buddies/friends/counterparts. They arrive barely in time and the coke man is obviously growing impatient.

FLAPJACK:

One of your friends mailed you some weird article about some alleged chinese secret service agents going awol. No spam though, thanks to the great email filter.

ALL

You all pile into the van and after a short trip arrive at the docks. You see an elegant glass bottom boat tied to the dock and the excitement builds. Connor walks straight toward the boat and then turns to one on the other side. It's a small charter boat that looks like something out of "Gilligan's Island" and it has the name "SS Minnow" painted on the side. Connor hops aboard

"All aboard thats coming aboard! None of you get sea sick very easy do you?"

Re: The Curse of Power

ooc maybe only this


:smith:

/ooc

You all pile into the Minnow as Connor shoves off, radoing in to harbor patrol as well as checking the GPS. He explains the history of the island as you go

"The demi-god Maui is a household name from Tonga to the Society Islands, to the Marquesas to Hawai'i. Something of a trickster, Maui had a place in his heart for mortals and is celebrated throughout the Pacific for such feats as giving fire to humans (after stealing it from its supernatural guardians) and fishing the islands of the Pacific from out of their watery depths.

My personal favorite island is Niihau though, due to its being untouched by the modern world even to this day. It is privately owned, but we have permission to tour it today, so I hope you all brought your cameras!"

He checks again for a weather report, which comes back excellent. He checks the GPS and heads in the direction of Niihau. The warm Hawaiin sun is complimented by the occasional dolphin swimming alongside the boat. Suddenly a call comes in over the radio.

"Sudden storm coming in from the west. All mariners please report position, number of persons aboard your vessel and type of vessel you are navigating. All vessels should return to safe harbor immedietly."

The sky grows dark and ominous as the wind starts to pick up and a light rain begins to fall.

Connor turns to you as he picks up the radio "There are lifejackets under the seats. Put them on while I..."

Before he can finish a bright flash of light illuminates the sky and the accompaning thunder is deafening. The rain falls so hard that vision is limited to only about a couple hundred yards or so. The waves swell larger by the moment, rocking the boat while the wind begins to push it to the port side. Before anyone reaches the lifejackets the boat is picked up by a monstrous wave and crashed into a reef. Remy and Roy are thrown from the boat and can be heard for only a few moments before dissapearing. Trisk and Adam both fall, hitting their heads on the side of the boat, knocking themselves out. Connor scrambles drag them into the cabin. As he shuts the door, another wave capsizes the boat. The undertow prevents Andy and Hannah from surfacing.

FLAPJACK
You stuggle to keep your head above the water as the current carries you against your will in an unknown direction. Every once in a while you see Roy's head bobing up and down in the waves, gasping for breath. After what seems like an eternity, you feel sand under your feet and only have enough strength to walk to the beach before passing out. When you awake, the weather is calm and Roy is lying on his back in the sand 10 yards down the beach. He's awake, but still rather shooken up. To your left and right are more beach, which curve out of view in both directions. In front of you there is a forest of palms and other Hawaiin vegetation. The rest of the group and the boat are nowhere to be seen.

ADAM
You regain conciousness in the cabin of the Minnow, which has run aground on a sandbar. Adam stirs as you survey the situation. The radio lies off the hook, the GPS appears non-functional. To the starboard side of the boat lies a small island. The water between the boat and the island is quite shallow, perhaps knee deep. Connor is nowhere to be seen, nor are the others.

SLICK
You are about to give up and give into drowning after the boat capsized when Hannah grabs your hand. You can barely make out a steep wall of sand that has a tunnel opening which is sucking Hannah toward it, and you as well. The current in the tunnel is quite strong, and you quickly surface in an underground cavern. It's hard to see, but a hole in the cieling provides light to the room. The weather appears to be calm above, but you can tell the walls will be impossible to scale. Some pieces of driftwood and other random things lie around the cavern room. Besides the way you came in, a dark, lightless tunnel going deeper into the cavern appears to be the only other possible method of escape.

*flapjack quickly struggled up, using his backpack to support him while he did so, then walked over to Roy to check on him, and possibly more important, his mobile phone for if it was still working, they would certainly be able to send a distress call and possibly even find their location*

The phone appears functional, but doesn't seem to be connecting to anything. Roy is fine, but your current location is still undetermined.

Andy gets up and dusts himself down. he coughs and spits out a small minnowfish and laughs.

Andy: lets go hannah
hannah: god its dark,
Andy: yeah but i came prepared.....

Andy gets his lighter and cigerettes out which by now are drenched, he throws the fags away, sighing abot the fact he cant have a fag and wipes the excess water out. he tries to light it but is unsuccesful. he opens thew gas holder and watches water fall out of the canister part. "that might be why...." he puts it back to gether and lights it. he and hannah walk down the poorly illuminated tunnel

Re: The Curse of Power

ADAM
Adam, during his scouting around, discovers that the boat has a small hole in the starboard hull towards the bow. The water to the island is just barely knee deep, and crystal clear, with only a few darting fish visible in the water from the boat to the island, about 100 yards away. From here you can see some coconut palms and a waterfall amidst the trees beyond the beach. In your search for items, you find all the standard emergency equipment, including a flashlight, emergency flares, life jackets, a telescope, and a first aid kit. Yo

SLICK
After some ingenious work to get the lighter working, you proceed down through the tunnel. At the entrance, some strange engravings are carved into the right wall. As you continue, the only sounds other than that of your own footsteps come from the small subterranean creatures scurrying about in blindness. After a short distance, the tunnel divides into two tunnels, branching off to the left and right. Engravings can barely be seen in the dim light above the two tunnels. The one to the left, as far as you can tell, appears to ascend, while the right one appears to descend deeper into the labyrinth.

Re: The Curse of Power

You wade towards the island and almost step on a sting ray, who fortunately swims away before you get your foot impaled on the barb. When you get closer to the trees you can see that the waterfall, which is now only about 10 yards in, has a cave behind it. Just like on those Disney Jungle Cruise Tours, you could see the incredible...backside of water! There are a few coconuts lying on the ground. In addition, there are some footprints heading off to the right, down the beach, though the islands natural curviture prevents you from seeing anyone.

Re: The Curse of Power

After a short distance of following the footsteps you encounter Connor, walking back in your direction.

"Trisk! There you are. I'm not quite sure where we are at, but I'm trying to find some way to either send a message or patch up the boat so we can get underway. Something seems to be interfering with the electronic equipment. See if you can locate the others, I'll meet you back at the boat. Any questions?"

SLICK
You only walk for about 10 yards into the tunnel when you run into a large metal, circular door blocking the path. The only other thing nearby are two oblong crystals, one on either side of the tunnel, being held in place vertically by some holders protruding from the wall. Hannah reaches out to touch one, but finds them to be immovable. However, when she tocuches them, the crystals light up, casting a blue light around the tunnel, making the lighter you are carrying innecessary. Behind you you can see that the rest of the tunnel is also illuminated.

Andy looks at the lights and sees it illuminate the whole tunnel. him and hannah start to walk back to get a better veiw of the tunnel behind them, so maybe they can find what they were looking at before.

As you start to walk away from Connor, he yells out to you
"Hey, you might want to check back the other way. I think I heard voices near the waterfall".

SLICK
The markings you saw in the walls, now properly illuminated, seem to be, from what you can tell without a translator, directions to things connected to the tunnel. Inscriptions with an arrow point towards the way you came in from, and 2 more point in the direction of the split in the tunnel. Above each of the tunnels are some more inscriptions. You notice the tunnels are rather smooth, almost too smooth to be caused by nature alone.

No one answers, but there seems to be a tunnel in the back of the cave. It appears to be self illuminated, as a blue light illuminates some strange engravings on the left wall of the decending tunnel.

Re: The Curse of Power

Andy and hannah walk towards the left part of the fork and start to look around. Andy watches the walls illuminate as he walks, he notices some more writings as he walks and sees a large room...

SLICK

The room you recognize as the one you came in from, with the pool of water leading out. The current is still strong, but the lights that came on seem to have turned other things on. Namely, a door has opened revealing a large computer. Hannah runs over and unknowingly places her hand over a circular scanner while she looks at the computer. The scanner lights up and scans her hand. The main screen comes on, and a persons face appears. He looks at you, says a few unintelligible words, and then switches to english.

"Ah, yes, greetings. My apologies for bringing you here in such a rude fashion, but it was necessary. More will be explained to you later, but if you will return to the tunnels that lead up to the surface and down further, you will see that I have removed the security door. Inside you will find your destinies."

As he says this, a lot of commotion is heard and seen going on in the background.

"I am truley sorry I do not have time to explain more to you right now, but you see we are in a bit of a rush. This is a pre-recorded message. By the time you get this, I don't know where I'll be. I trust you will be able to figure out what you need to do and stop the invasion, thus saving the world. Power can be a great help and blessing......and also a great curse....use what you find wisely. You may only take one each. You will understand more when you arrive, goodbye"

Re: The Curse of Power

SLICK and ADAM

You run into each other at the junction where the cave forks up to the left and down to the right (for slick....for adam it would be straight, or to the left a tunnel goes down...you know). You continue together down into a large lighted room. Stalagtites and stalagmites decorate the room, while a hologram projector in the center comes on.

"Greetings. Allow me to introduce myself. First of all, my name would be too hard for you to pronounce in your language, so you may call me John. That would be a suitable equivilant. My time is limited, so I will be brief. I am an Atlantean. Our civilization is on the brink of destruction due to a misuse of the power we were able to harness. We scientists were able to, in part, harness and use the elemental powers of earth, fire, wind, and water, as well as influence the hearts of others, and even time itself. You stand in the remains of a smaller research laboratory. I stored away in this place the lesser versions of these powers, but they are still to be handled and used with caution. I must warn you that there are some that are seeking these powers out. Do not flaunt them around as if they were ordinary. Use them for good, but try to be inconspicuos. Now. There is a greater labratory that contains the full version of these powers. You must get there before anyone else, and do whatever is necessary from preventing those items from falling into the wrong hands. I realize this is a major undertaking, and will not hold it against you if you simply leave now. But by taking any of the items, you accept these responsibilities. I previously mentioned you would only be able to take item each, but seeing as how there are not enough of you to carry all 6, Hannah and Adam may each take one, while Andy and Trisk will be permitted to take 2."

Behind the hologram, 6 pedastals are illuminated. 5 of them hold the elemental rings, and the other contains what appears to be a wrist watch. John continues

"I have equipped this program with automated answering software. If you have any questions, please direct them to the hologram after choosing your equipment."

The rings are all set with different colored stones, each containing emblems of some sort. The earth ring is green with a picture of the globe, fire red with a flame, wind white with strange lines, water blue with a water drop, and spirit/heart marked with a heart. Each sits on its own pedastal, which also contains the rings emblem markings. The wristwatch is yellow and has a couple buttons on the right side. No special emblem is on its pedastal.

Re: The Curse of Power

After picking up the watch, Adam is prevented from grabbing the white ring by some strange force. The rings that Trisk grabs (fire and spirit) can be felt eminating massive amounts of power as the elements seem to flow through them. But what do they do exactly? How do you use them? John re-appears.

"You are probabaly wondering about the functions of those objects. The watch is a particle accelerator. Basically, when you switch past the normal time mode and stopwatch mode you will go onto a screen that says HT at the top. This is short for "Hyper-Time". When you enter this mode, anything you are touching at the time will enter it with you. All else around you will be moving so slow it will almost seem to stand still. The rings are part telepathic. Get a clear mental picture of what it is you want to happen (as long as the elemental pertaining to the ring is concerned) and point it towards the target area and call out the elements name, beit earth fire wind water or spirit. The spirit ring will enable you to change the moods of others, communicate with animals, as well as minor thought transfer. "

John hands the other rings (earth wind water) to Andy and Hannah.

"I have taken care of the others. They are safe back at the hotel. You now have a quest. After making these element and time controlling devices, the scientists of Atlantis researched further and created even more powerful equipment. Unfortunately, such power is not easily controlled and our entire nation was destroyed by our own creations. However, these items were not destroyed. A prophecy was proclaimed before our destruction.

"A time shall arise in that some shall arise to take the very powers that now threaten our great nation. They shall find the hiding place in the great sea and the fate of the very world will be at hand, for they shall not be able to control the power within the gloves. The world shall then meet the same fate as Atlantis unless the few chosen ones who shall possess the rings can defeat them."

The time is now, my young friends. A small group of spies from a great nation are now searching for this power. You must not permit them to obtain....The Curse of Power. Go now. Begin your quest. Use the powers you have been given to help others. Keep it secret, and do not abuse it. When this hologram turns off, the teleportor in this room shall activate. Speak the place you wish to go, and there you shall be. Farewell."

At this moment in the hologram, a lot more comotion is heard, metal flies around like paper, and finally a great explosion ends it all.
