Beast Hunters - Chapter 001: Shadows

"Aw, c'mon now, it ain't that bad being with me. Besides, we have to work together in order to save this town from those ugly goblins." Blazrin nodded to Vala and her suggestion. "Your friend has a point. Burning these flowers could definitely bring out those critters from hiding. I can use a little bit of fire magic but I'll leave the spells to your girlfriend. I can withstand the heat tho'! So I should be okay in the middle chopping those goblins apart."

Blazrin reached out behind him and placed the small backpack near Vala as he unsheathed his huge axe from his back. He held it above the two easily with one arm and gave them a cocky smile.

"I'm okay standing inside the ring of fire or near the exit to pick off any runners. I'll make sure none escape my axe or your spells. Oh, by the way!" Blazrin pointed to the backpack. "Just in case things get hairy, I packed some nifty tool you can use."

“You got it mate!” Jack rushed over towards the trees. “Damn beast won’t know what hit’em.”

“Yeah, that sounds like a good idea Vala—” Excalik paused for a second. “Huh? Don’t say things out of nowhere.” He protested when Blazrin declared Vala as his girlfriend, with a slight blush. “You stay in that circle, and I’ll provide cover of your behind, yack. Unlike you, I’m pretty fast. Physically and mentally.” He turned to Vala. “Let’s make that happen. If the Monster Hunter said is true, then those buffoons will come running to see what’s up.”

Monster Hunter and Bronson approached the town, and the scent is even worse than before. They were several areas of dedicated spots for Goblins to expel their bowels, out in the open and the like. “Filthy beasts. Their scent leaves with disgust… and deep hatred to have them slaughtered like pigs.” Monster Hunter uttered, noticing a few scouts were speaking to one another. “Seems like they’re making a transition with another pair. That’ll give us time to start the burning, Sir Bronson?”

Eleanor hoisted herself off of Jack's shoulders into the nearest tree, slinging a rope coil off her shoulder and testing the springiness of its branches with her hand. "Alright, this one's a good spot. Hoists 'em high enough to get their heads cut off or blown to smithereens! Whichever you'd like." She tied a small knot on one end to the branch before lowering herself down and turning the other end into a noose-like snare and affixing it in place with a wooden tension pole she whittled with her knife. "I'll make these and you cover 'em up with some grass and something that'll lure 'em in. Sumthin... shiny? They look like the type to go for shiny things," Eleanor said before jumping up into another tree to set up more snare traps.




"Is it a habit of yours to assign people such arbitrary terms, Mister Blazrin? For one thing I am a lady that is a friend, not a little girl. Now can we get to work without distractions, lads?" Vala grumbled before jumping down into the ditch for cover. After designating the pattern in which she can burn the flowers and grass, she aimed her staff in the sky to unleash a steady stream of embers that drifted in the air down onto the grass. Falling like snow, they slowly scorched the flowers for a controlled burning. Eventually the ring of fire was connected; smoke began to billow and the scent of burning plants filled the air.

"Okay, ready your weapons!" She called out to the two in a hushed whisper before hiding behind the log.

"Filthy wretches. Let's start slinging oil in their favorite hangouts while we have the chance. Connecting the oil trails with one thin line down the street can help us wall them off in smaller packs." Bronson said, pulling out several glass canisters of flammable oil to hand the Monster Hunter. "Wouldn't want them overrunning the place after all."

Blazrin seemed confused as to why Excalik seemed so hostile towards him but paid no mind to it. Once Vala set up a controlled fire, the man gripped the hilt of his axe tightly, carefully waiting for any goblins that might show up to the burning flowers. His usual goofy persona turned serious, nearly in direct contrast to what Excalik and Vala have seen. He was able to stick very close to the flames, being very tolerant of the heat.

Okay, time to teach these nasty goblins a lesson. Maybe once we chop them up, they'll think twice before coming over to hurt others...

[Near the Town]

“Right. Let’s do this…” Monster Hunter grabbed the canisters of flammable oil as they snuck around of the town, using the brick wall as cover to avoid detection. Seeing areas where there were little to no Goblins, the Monster Hunter sling several oils to certain spots. One of them being a food storage unit that was left unguard, a bar and a shaft that contain items. They overheard footsteps, causing them to duck to avoid being seen. Several Goblins, that wore strange attire that isn’t fit for fighting, came rushing towards the Field, being alarm by the smoke clouds in the sky. “Vala and the others did their part… That’s three of them heading out.” He turned to see the reactions of other Goblins towards the build up of the fire, but they were more concern with the food in front of them.

[Field of Bloody Flowers]

Excalik held onto his dagger, looking for enemies after Vala burned the flowers as he hid in the ditch. “Killing people just to get to the flowers. Monsters truly don’t have much thoughts to themselves other than their instincts, huh…”

Three Goblin Scouts ran towards the field, seeing the ring of flowers set ablaze. They discuss among each other in confusion, wondering why the fire was created. Another, scratching its jewels, attempt to play off the job by telling the other two to put out the fire so they can go back and enjoy the feast.

“Alright… we should take them out together, so they don’t scream. Let’s attack on my count… 1…2…”

[Near the trees]

“Something shiny… like gold.” Jack rubbed his chin, pondering if he had anything on his person to use such thing to lure these beasts to their trap. Snapping his fingers on an idea, he’d opened his mouth and ripped several golden teeth cleanly. “Should this be sufficient?” Jack asked Eleanor. “It made of pure gold and shine quite good when the sun rays hits it.” He covered the traps with grass and placed golden teeth on top of it. “That should do it…”
