Hullo World!

It seems the spring has brought us not just a wave of good weather, but also a shower of great new changes to the site. On top of our Spring Appreciation and Mothers Day Letters events, which will run through the season, but we also have a number of equally awesome changes and shops for all you lovely folk, from our equally awesome and lovely staff.

It seems a mysterious shot has opened on the edge of town. Specializing in what were once only seasonally available items, the Events Shop will let players exchange their hard earned Event Tokens for magnificent items ranging from magma weapons, to speacity cookbooks, to a fan item representing some of the sites strongest characters. As a special Celebration of the stores opening, all members who post in the celebration thread will receive a special bonus, so make sure you check it out before time runs out!

Within the workings of your roleplay here, make sure you check out the newest section of the Misc. Info section of the rule book, Creative Freedom and You This section outlines the sort of freedom players have here at HxHRPG and the varying types of adventures one might find in a thread.

Saving one of the best for last, the Hunter Exam Hunter Exam system has been fully revamped. What was once a fairly large and very lengthy system, is now a much more direct and streamlined adventure for the characters who want to test their own mettle in becoming some of the select few who call themselves Hunters.

While that’s it for now, there are a few more massive projects coming down the pipeline soon, including the much anticipated Group/Faction System, and some changes to the Nen System!

The harshness of the terrain was unmerciful from the moment the airplane landed. The HPE volunteers had the unfortunate luck to have come in the summer when the desert, in which Gyren was located, was at its hottest and most driest. The blazing mid-day sun scorched the earth beneath it, leaving the blacktop of the runway the equivalent of an oven as the 5 members of HPE disembarked from their lavish, air conditioned jet. Waiting for them would be a long black limo, and 2 men dressed in white and blue suits standing just beside the vehicle.

"Good heavens!" Remarked Ambrosia, 39, the leader of the new arrival of volunteers. She was a heavy-set white woman with red hair gorgeous blue-green eyes. Aware that it'd be hot she only wore blue jean shorts, which looked very uncomfortable, sandals, and a white shirt with a blue vest. She walked down the few steps towards the waiting limousine.

Following behind her would be a dark-haired, slender woman named Meg, 30, who was dressed in a khaki shorts and matching white shirt and blue vest. "Wow, never expected it to be this bad!" She said, using her right hand as a visor to look off into the nearly barren distant landscape. "It's like we're in hell but worse..."

After Meg came the twins, Richard, 24 and Luther, 24 from York Shin. These two were nearly identical except for the tattoos of the letters "R" and "L" that corresponded to their names placed beneath the right eye for Richard and left eye for Luther. "Mother and Father are going to pay for making us come here with such mediocre means!" They said in tandem, echoing in such an annoying manner that it made Meg cringe even as she scurried into the cooler limo. Finally, came Lance and Gonu, the youngest of everyone.


With everyone finally in the car, they began to drive over the coarse highway. Small bumps and slight turns were abundant so nobody was ever really still.

"The drive will take a few hours, so there are beverages and snacks in the compartments along the right side of the cabin." The driver said, speaking of the obvious bar-like set up that most everyone couldn't help but stare at since they stepped into the spacious car.

Lance arrived coming out of the plane with a clothes that matched the terrain he had a shirt on with long thin sleeves and thin layered pants that also matched the color of the terrain he had bought a ballistic vest which of course matched the color as well. He wore on his head a head wrap which again blended in covering his entire head and face only leaving his eyes open but to which he wore goggles to see in the sun and in case sandstorms struck. Lance looked like a full fledged soldier but this time he wasn't fighting for his country he was here to help people affected by war going on around here to which he heard was extremely violent. Lance had his rifle slung over his shoulder to where it was right in front of him but he was not holding it his arms were resting on it as he walked out.

It was hot very hot Lance had never fought in a desert before but it seemed like fighting in snow except it was hot as hell and not cold like your ex's heart. Lance looked at the people he was arriving with they did not seem like the volunteer time who would go into a full fledged war zone but he had no right to judge thinking upon his past actions. Lance got in the limo and once they started driving he got uneasy he heard they use IED's here alot and would often blow up tanks or convoy's in half. But what really rattled Lance is that they are driving in a limo such a big fat target to shoot at he thought to himself looking out the windows every now and then.

The drive would take a couple of hours the driver said Lance didn't like to be in this death can and decided to distract himself a bit by talking to the fellow passengers in the limo with him making small talk with them before he arrived at his destination.

So far the group of five, not including the driver, have been travelling for about an hour and a half and the drive was unusually painful. Not only was the road they were driving on a piece of shit highway with many war wounds that made it seem like they might as well have been riding in a dune buggy on the sands. While Richard and Luther were steadily playing eye spy, and in between rounds would occasionally argue that what the other had "spied" was stupid for choosing something so ridiculous, Meg just listened to her music from her phone with her white earphones in she covered her eyes with a bandanna from her back pocket, and Ambrosia.....we'll she was just talking to everyone thinking that they were listening; she was foolish to think so.

In the distance, Lance could hear explosions, though someone with Lance's specific hearing and history could understand that it was probably low grade explosives such as TNT or other types of stick-based explosive. It was most likely the sound of mine workers trying to open a vein of ore.

The trip was fairly boring, aside from the slightly common sounds of explosions echoing around, there wasn't much to do. Suddenly, as Lance sat in his seat, the car hit a bump and nearly swerved hard, taking them off road before skidding to a stop some few yards away from the highway.

From the front of the car, they could hear the driver yelling "Shit! Got damn roads will never get fixed!" He slammed his hand against the steering wheel and voiced his hatred for the economy of his country. After having calmed down he opened the window separating him from the group, "I'm going to change the flat tire, it'll be awhile and I'll need to turn off the car, so if you'd like there are fans located in the compartment just underneath each of your seats. Also you're all welcomed to leave and enter the vehicle as you please." Finished he gave a warm smile and closed the window before leaving. He walked around the car, popped open the trunk and began to work on the car.

"Good grief, barely here for an hour and we're already stranded in the middle of nowhere." complained Luther.

Richard slapped Luther across the back of the head, causing his brother to flinch and glare in anger. "Shut it up Luther! You're too complacent and annoying to deal with right now.....just get the hell up so I can grab that fan he was speaking about earlier!" He commanded as he and his brother got up and began to attempt to lift the seats chair. "It better be an industrial one too..." He added as he struggled.

Meg, glaring at the boys disgusted, huffed and decided to attempt to lay down, she was awakened during the chaotic struggle to maintain control of the car after its right rear and front tires popped. "Idiots......spoiled idiots." She muttered under her breath.

Surprisingly Ambrosia hadn't said much but just gripped her seat for dear life and held her breath until her face began to turn blue. She was terrified, she had only done this because she thought she could make a difference here but after arriving she had to deal with the heat as well as the very real possibility that they might be attacked at any moment by some rebels thinking that they were political envoys sent to bolster the city's militia. "Oh goodness! please god let this not be the place I die!" She closed her eyes, clenched her hands together in front of her face and lowered her head as she lost herself in prayer.

Lance was more worried that someone was going to blow them up or start taking pot shots at them from a distance so Lance exited quickly and decided to help the driver with the tire Lance saw him struggling so he decided to do it himself since he was stronger and faster but listened to what the man was saying. "So whats the situation could you fill me in, your a local what's really going on here I don't trust newspapers or the news they tend to get things mixed up only the people know whats really happening." Lance outside pricked his ears up and kept a guard up incase anything was about to go down.

Lance wondered about the people inside they don't seem like the type who could be of any help here this isn't the place for people who don't want to be here this is a place for people who want change and change is not a easy thing to get sometimes it requires blood to be spilled Lance knew that better than anyone.

When Lance exited the car and approached the driver, his presence spooked the man causing him to jump. "Yeezus! Kid! You gave me a start lad!" He proclaimed. After calming down he continued to work the jack to lift the limo up. The sun beat down on them and even though it hadn't even been more than a couple minutes, the heat would already get them sweating. And if they were looking for any comfort in some breezes, they would be severely disappointed as the occasional breeze would be dry and assail them with course and stingingly hot sand. "Of all days....today has to be the one with the sandstorm brewing." After loosening the bolts on the back wheel the driver sighed reluctantly before stopping what he was doing and looking at the ground while contemplating. He then turned back to Lance. "Listen kid, all I know and need to know is that there are rebels within our city, wreaking havoc.......things aren't great but they're stable now with them rebels, kids die in the streets, entire families end up slaughtered like sheep all for what? a just cause? And what is that? man kid, volunteers are a godsend but don't go prying into business like ours......you'll just end up screwed in the head."

After finishing his short rant the driver removed the flattened tire and rolled up the new one. The driver lowered the limo and moved the jack to the front of the car, the look of frustration across his face was all too real. Suddenly, the driver perked up as he and Lance could definitely hear the sound of a car driving, by the growing sound it was safe to assume that it was somebody coming from the opposite direction they came from. Thus leaving them with the choice to either assume that its someone bad or someone good, would they try to wave them down, or would they just hide inside the limo and hope that whoever it was would leave them be.

The old man said softly to himself in a worried tone. The surprising look of surprise mixed with some worry gave away his true thoughts at the time and with Lance being the only one able to see them, was stuck with a choice.

Lance muttered under his breath hearing the man "I am screwed up in the head..." Lance helped him with whatever he could before hearing the sound of a car coming by, he and the driver perked up and saw it coming down Lance had no idea who was inside, they could be good guys but could also be bad it was a straight 50/50 chance. Lance opened the door to the limo and said in a commanding voice "Shut up and duck down we have a car coming no idea who it is so lay down and keep your head covered this could go bad." Lance closed the door and told the driver to say hidden behind it.

Lance crouched down before crawling to remain unseen sunk into the sand a few feet away blending in. He brought out his sniper and aimed it at the very close car coming now near the Limo. Lance used En and made sure it reached the Limo and the other side of the road he was using this as his way to aim if they were out of view and stopped to check he would be able to shoot them even if he couldn't see them. Now Lance waited to see what they would do he hoped they would not stop and just kept going.

Within the limo just moments after Lance gave out orders and slammed the door;

"Who the hell does he think he is?!" Luther spoke absently and in an annoyed voice as he stared blankly at the door with a look of disbelief on his face. "I-I don't really know what's gotten into that brat but who is he to give me orders?!? Richard?! Are you just going to take this?" He complained, now turning to his brother for backup.

Richard rolled his eyes and leaned on his hand as he stared out the window the the fan now in his face. "Just shut up Luther, there's no point in giving him our attention." Richard said. Ignoring his brother's complaining, Richard closed his eyes, yawning in his boredom.

The others as well ignored Luther's ranting and complaining, rolling their eyes at him or just continuing their crying; in Ambrosia's case. But Luther wasn't taking it well and began to turn red with frustration and anger. "Damn you all! Especially you Richard!" He yelled punching Richard in the arm.

"Hey!" Richard cried.

Luther looked angrily at everyone, his blood began to boil like a spoiled child and he began to tear up.

Meanwhile outside...

The driver, having decided that hiding was also a better idea than staying out in the open, had hidden on the opposite side of the car, curling up into a fetal position alongside the front right wheel of the limo. By the time he was in position, the unknown car came into view. The car was a jeep without a top that was being ridden by 5 guys, one driver, one passenger, two in the back seats and on extra in the rear compartment with an adjusted seat where the spare tire should've been. They all wore masks that looked like they were designed by sand men (Star Wars) and their attire was the same however the only difference was the fact that they were carrying assault rifles.

"An unidentified vehicle, Limo model, stopped and jacked up in Sector C." Said the man in the driver seat.

The one in the back jumped off the back of the truck with a fairly large rifle, by the scope and stock as well as the bi-pod it was easy to see that what the person was carrying as a high class military grade sniper rifle.

"It appears abandoned..." The person said in a feminine voice, giving indication to her gender. She took out some sort of mobile device and held it up, by the beeping sound it was an electronic scanner. "There's all sorts of activity inside, it might be rigged......and its cool inside, it hasn't been off-road long. It could be a trap." She said, stepping back to the jeep.

"Then lets get ride of if." Said the big stocky guy in the back seat, he stood up with a grenade launcher in his hands and aimed it at the limo. "Time to clear the road..." He said in an attempt to be cool, everyone in attendance shook their head.

Suddenly, Luther burst out of the limo. "Hey you stupid fuck! How dare you tell me to shut up! Do you know who I am?"

"What the shit!?!" Everyone burst out screaming simultaneously, then immediately everyone in the jeep pointed their guns at the limo.

Lance saw the people and examined them with his en through the shapes and items they had on them Lance knew who had what on them. Lance shifted his rifle to the big man with a grenade launcher an aimed at a grenade for the launcher strapped to his chest in case he had to shoot this way he could hit the grenade and kill all of them in one go maybe. But Lance waited to see if they would just leave like he hoped but instead they all pointed there guns at the limo due to one person causing ruckus inside Lance was furious but now was not the time. Lance had to think of a way to avoid being shot at and avoid getting everyone killed. There was one way Lance could think of he stretched his aura and avoided the limo wrapping around it and released a malice towards the group of unknown armed men. Lance put pressure on them as if there very lives were about to end if they pulled the trigger something warning them not to shot at it. Lance was ready for the worst but being in his aura should stop them and slowly being in it longer would cause them damage this should be a good scare tactic if not lance was ready to pull the trigger and blow than man to smithereens.

The first one to react to the aura was the sniper woman, she suddenly gasped and took a step back, she nearly even dropped her rifle in shock. Luther, who was just standing by, watched in amazement and shock at the reaction from the woman. He mouthed What the F**k and shrunk back into the limo and closed the doors. However, even as the woman was the only one who reacted so fast, it seemed as if she was just merely overtaken momentarily.

"Shit! So one of them is a nen-ster! Must be rebels!" She announced angrily taking off her rifle and pointing it towards the limo. "I thought I was just imagining that field of aura but shit I guess my initial feeling was right....."

The two in the backseat as well as the passenger stepped out the car. The big guy moved towards the truck first. "Rebels......tired of them, rats all of them! Now those cloaked guys! Wiping out entire crews! Now those are the guys are real opponents!" He boasted as he nonchalantly grabbed the door to the limo his fingers dug into them like a hot knife through butter then ripped it off like it was toilet tissue. "Well look it here! Little rats!" He laughed.

Inside, Luther met with the masked face of the big soldier. Richard, Ambrosia, and Meg stared in shock and fear as the guy grabbed Luther by the shirt and pulled him outside. Luther was too afraid to even speak, and Ambrosia did all the screaming while meg and Richard just stared.

"Can I stuff a grenade down his throat?" The big guy asked.

The one in the passenger seat, a tall slender guy with long black hair approached and put a hand on the big guy's shoulder. "They're not rebels......they're the relief volunteers, obviously. But I'd take precaution about the little guy behind limo he seems to be the one with the aura, probably a hunter or something." The guy walked around the back of the limo and peeked around at Lance. "Are you a rebel?" He asked, slowly reaching to his cloak and opening it, flashing a fairly cool looking pistol.

"I was thinking the same about you." Lance got up slowly and keep his hands on his rifle just incase they are lying to him he subsided his aura but kept the en field up just to make sure things didn't go bad Lance cautiously walked towards the car and leaned against the trunk of the limo. He looked at all of them gauging them abut before speaking again "It's pretty hard to tell who is who here how do I know I can trust you?" Lance kept his finger on the trigger ready to spray a load of hot lead at them all lance answered the slender mans question with a calm and brisk tone "I am a mercenary, and you are?"
