TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 24Opening the flap, Takeo stepped out into the village and was greeted, much to his surprise, by a crowd that had gathered infront of the storage hut. Every single one of them had a look of curiosity and horror on their faces. He had never seen so many cheetahs before and there looked to be more than what the village looked like it could physically support.
As he looked into the gathered crowd, he could see all the warrior cheetahs that had helped defend against the Shadus cheetah assault and along with other slimmer looking cheetahs. Their breasts were portruding out, making bulges on their robes so, the human had guessed these were the females of the group. With the females, were much smaller cheetahs with clean fur of varying colors and fairly big eyes.
Movement had caught his eye and Takeo saw Hunter and Prowlus shoving their way through the crowd.
"Back up!" Prowlus ordered. The cheetahs did so without hesitation. Prowlus and Hunter stood right next to Takeo and Prowlus looked back

Dempsey, Spyro, Nikolai and Richtofen nodded together and said their good-byes to the villagers.
"You be careful do you understand me? I will not tolerate anything bad happening. I will desecrate your corpses if you die." Toran growled, but a sad twinkle in his eyes. The humans and the purple dragon nodded.
"We will old timer," assured Dempsey. "We will."
The group turned to the main crowd that had gathered. The crowd erupted into applause and roars of hope as the group took to the air and headed to the Well of Souls.
Lenin took the three humans rather easily. He seemed to have gotten much better and stronger. Spyro seemed to have gotten stronger as well.
"Guys..." Spyro began. "I must fight Gaul alone..." To his surprise, he only received nods. &

"Very well. What should I tell the others?" Ignitus looked over to the other dragons. They were all at the table, eating meat, cheese and talking to each other about different things, like their childhoods or things they would like to do when the crisis is resolved.
"Tell them I left to explore the lands. It's not the full truth, but does include some of it." Takeo looked at the others as well, then back to Ignitus. "It'll do. I don't want them wanting to follow me around."
"Very well. Be safe Takeo." Ignitus said. Takeo nodded and went out the main doors of the Temple.
"Hey, where's he going?" Kiah asked as she watched him leave.
"Out. He's never really gotten a chance to explore the lands since he first got here and he wants to do so."
TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 7Scar had a difficult time trying to keep up with the others. They had to wait for him on six seperate occasions and Zaroth was starting to lose patience. Takeo had wondered if there was some sort of injury that Scar had. It looked like it, because he kept left front paw up as if it was broken.TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 74 years ago in Settings More Like This
"What is wrong?" Takeo asked. The grey dragon looked up at him.
"Nothing, just sprained my ankle that's all." Scar winced as he try to set it back down, then he quickly pulled it back up. "The apes often tortured me to amuse themselves. My ankle hurts because they broke my legs and made me walk. Then they healed my wounds, but left my ankle in pain."
"We could fix it with those red crystals your kind is so fond of." Hunter suggested. "Problem is, I don't see any around."
"I won't slow anyone down, I promise." Scar said firmly. He set back to his limping while the others watched with conc
TLoS: World at War Ch. 39"Well, as I said, we're travellers. We're heading to Warfang." said Zoidius. He didn't feel good about lying, but had he told them the real reasons, the villagers might not want them to stay, and they need the rest.TLoS: World at War Ch. 395 years ago in Settings More Like This
"Warfang is quite a long ways away. Where did you come from?" asked Kala, lying down on the grass. The other dragons lost all suspicion and gathered around the three visitors. Some of the hatchlings came up to Nikolai and sniffed him.
"You smell funny..." squeaked a hatchling with sky blue scales.
"That would be the vodka...I think..." Nikolai took a deep breath. "Yeah, that would be the vodka."
Zoidius and Dempsey sat down on the grass with Kala. "We were held captive by pirates." said Zoidius with a false shudder to build sympathy.
"More pirates..." growled one of the adults. "They're expanding pretty rapidly."
"Hush up..." said
TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 9Takeo awoke from his sleep, his vision blurry and his head throbbing. It was very late as there were no lights coming from inside the Temple and outside the window, the stars were twinkling. He absent mindedly grabbed his Eviscerator and checked to see if it was loaded. After confirming, he felt a bit sheepish for having gotten into this habit of constant checks with the Eviscerator. He took off the upper layer of his leather clothing, leaving a white undershirt he wore with his normal uniform.TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 94 years ago in Settings More Like This
Digging around in his backpack, he was shocked to see the food he and his other human cohorts had stolen from the pirate ship during their imprisonment had not molded or gone stale. He layed the food out on the table and sorted through it, finally grabbing some odd colored bread. He sniffed it, but smelled nothing wrong with it. He squeezed it and it crunched with the freshness of it coming out of the oven.&

"Let him go!" ordered Cursed Zoidius again.
"Wha...? What is this...?" Toran began. His only answer was a charge from Cursed Zoidius. Toran yelped in surprised and tried to kick Cursed Zoidius off, but he was pinned on the ground. Zoidius's strength had increased by a factor of five and Toran couldn't match it. Dempsey then rolled away and onto his feet when Toran was taken down. He ran up to Nikolai.
"What the fuck is this?" he asked Nikolai and watching Cursed Zoidius.
"How the hell should I know?" Nikolai responded. "I've never seen something like this."
Toran grunted in effort as he tried in vain to escape. Cursed Zoidius growled and lowered his head to Toran's.

"Much has happened since our last meeting..." Ignitus noted a bit dryly. The smile vanished, along with Takeo's. The human nodded in affirmation.
"Yes. I trust you've been kept up to date?" Takeo asked, looking up into the dragon's red eyes. They twinkled in minor amusement.
"Of course. You don't believe one such as myself would be foolish enough to ignore the news of the lands?" Ignitus chuckled.
Takeo smiled. "I guess I should've known better."
"I also know about what happened at the Well of Souls. Some of the prisoners that escaped relayed the news. Dragons, in fact."
"Really?" Takeo said, raising an eyebrow.
"Yes, four of them. They are resting further in the Temple now."

"Man fuck you, I'll make out with my guns whenever I want to." Dempsey growled. He kissed his guns again, though this time more to spite Richtofen instead of actual happiness.
Richtofen sighed and looked at his upgraded MP-40.
"You know, you need a proper name. MP-40 doesn't seem quite right, from this moment henceforth, you are now zhe Afterburner." he proclaimed.

The two of them kept quiet and followed the group, maintaing a distance of around a hundred yards. The apes limped and lumbered through the field, many of them having blood stains on their armor and torn cuirasses. Despite the fog, Takeo could make out around twenty apes.TLoS: Warlord Takeo Ch. 54 years ago in Settings More Like This
"Damn! We can't even raid villages anymore!" one of the apes growled, limping and patching up a cut on his hand.
"Malefor is displeased with our failure at defending the Well of Souls, there are rumors going about that he replaced us big apes with little Grublins." another one said.
What's a Grublin? Takeo would have to ask Hunter at a better time.
"Bah! They no good fighters! They weak bugs and get squished easy!" said the first ape. They were silent from then on and drastically slowed down their pace. One of them finally collapsed from blood

Most of the citizens were asleep, though there people occasionaly sitting in their houses and looking out the windows or preparing food inside.

Takeo looked at her inquistively. He realized that he no idea of how long she was in captivity.
"When did the apes capture you?" he asked.
"Oh, maybe about a month before I was rescued by your friends." The amber dragoness replied, opening her eyes and looking at Takeo. She seemed to have

"I don't know! Quit asking!" Spyro replied impatiently with a clack of his teeth. It has been two hours since their battle with the statues and the path they were walking along seemed to have no end. Richtofen was starting to groan as well.
"Zis had better be vorth it!" Richtofen's boots were killing his feet and he had longed to massaged them.
Spyro could see that Takeo was starting to show signs of irritation both from the endless path and Sparx's constant whining. By some miracle, Takeo had shown incredible patience, until now. His face was starting put on a sour look and he would occasionly put his hand on the pommel of his combat knife, looking as if he would take it out to kill someone with it.
"Hurry up!!! I want this to end!" came another whine from Sparx. Takeo pulled the knife out completely and was ready to slash Sparx's wings off, until the gloved hand of Richtof

Takeo stood up and stretched his back. Hunter was still sleeping softly in the grass ten feet infront of him. Takeo looked around then looked into his gun to make sure that no bullets were jammed in awkwardly. A warrior must always make sure his weapon is in shape for battle. To his surprise, the Arisaka, now known as the Eviserator was in perfect condition and ready to go. The Chronicler's magic must have made his gun abosulutely perfect. The Arisaka has had a poor maitainence performance since it was first built in 1898.

"Wait...how the hell do you know where it is if we're in some sort of empty space?" he asked.
"For the past hour or so, I've been scanning with my mind crystal for any other life out here. About twenty minutes ago, I detected the minds of some dragons from the village I mentioned."
Dempsey looked confused, but said, "Hell, I don't care anymore. This entire world has been fucking insane ever since that teleporter sent us here." Zoidius merely smiled and continued on. Nikolai's Dreadwing followed him. Nikolai had grown quite fond of the Dreadwing.

"God dammit..." he growled. "The Colt is the only thing I have enough ammo for and I really don't think I can stop hordes of these fucking monkies with it."

"Oh mein gott..." Richtofen muttered, while taking off his hat and wiping his brow. He then gripped the Wunderwaffe in his hands and slowly moved forward. He kept the hat off as he made his way through the heat. There was the occasionaly bush that was on fire and it left Richtofen wondering how his own corpse would look if he was to die and his body is to be left there. He shrugged the thought off and unscrewed the cap to his canteen. He took a small sip. To his dismay, the water had warmed considerably.

The sun was half-way above the horizon, painting the land in moderate golden rays of light.
