Forest Near Torturehouse

Zane had initially accepted the plan, but Defender had another portion of it to speak.

"Vigil, if you're a close-range fighter what we could do then is use you as bait."

The first part of the plan made Zane look at Defender with a mix of worry and intrigue, wondering where he was going with this.

"When Sword and Shield and I get their attention with our attacks, they will come in our general direction, you can come out quickly do an attack or two or even taunt them to get them to follow you. While you're heading back into the forest we can attack them with more long-range attacks and they will again try to find us, then you can come back out and get their attention again. If we can keep up this routine we can lead them from the base, bunch them up, and circle around them. They will be so occupied with trying to find us in the forest that we can head back to the base and help Calamity. It's really up to you if you want to do that, but we can move them along just the same and still go around them. And... that's all I've got, see you later."

Zane agreed. If they could force the Ancients away from Calamity, they might all be able to help him out when they searched for them in the forest. The only problem Zane might see is if not all the Ancients chose to follow, and later on surrounded the torturehouse. But that was unlikely. Ancients were mindless footsoldiers, no voice of their own. It is only if Silver Tribe members were here that the plan would fail.

Defender headed for another part of the forest, as Sword and Shield headed to another and prepared his Surf attack. It flooded over a group of Ancients that patrolled close-by, taking them out with one blow. Zane marveled at the strength of the Snorlax, but he shouldn't be surprised. He is, in fact, a Gold Tribe member. A few seconds later, from another section of the forest, a ball of water in the form of Water Pulse hit another Ancient. The plan was set. As they released their attacks, Calamity ran off sneakily towards the entrance, and soon was out of sight. Zane silently wished him luck.

The plan called for Zane to go out and bait more in, but others were already moving into Defender's and Sword and Shield's old postions. By now, though, they would have moved. Then Zane saw it. The set of attacks actually baited out quite a bit of Ancients, a few dozen already heading their general direction, with others slowly figuring out what was happening as well. Zane leaped forward, taking on a group of Kabutops right closest to them, ramming into them with an Iron Head. The attack came so quickly and with so much force that the Ancients could do nothing but look as the attack crushed them. The Ancients now were directly in pursuit of Zane, who after that attack began to retreat back into the forest thickets, depending on his brothers now to take out the rest of the rather large group heading towards them.

"Let's hope this will work." Zane thought.

Gladius Clipeum


After sending the huge wave of water to the Ancients, Gladius moved to another position, far from where he sent the attack. After he attacked, he saw Defender threw a blob of water to the oncoming Ancients. He, too, moved away. The plan was actually working. Gladius saw Vigil moved in for a kill. He used Iron Head on some Kabutops which immediately felled them. They had no chance to think, anymore. This is all going to well. Let's hope no Silver Tribe member appears. Vigil disappeared among the forest. It was Gladius cue to send another attack. This time, he is going to use Earthquake. He stomped the ground with all his might, shaking it, creating several fissures on the ground. Because of his amazing strength, the shaking reached the group of Ancients and several were knocked down. Gladius, to be sure of his hit, hit the ground with his fist, sending another Earthquake towards them. This time, more Ancients fell.

He moved to another position. Some Ancients were busy thinking what was happening. This could give Gladius some time. He concentrated on the flowing geyser somewhere in the area. He could still manage to control it, theoretically. He still had not tried it. Gladius imagined the water to retreat back to the ground, and erupting be----

BOOM! The ground behind him erupted. Gladius had no time to congratulate himself. Like he did earlier, he used his hands to direct the water towards the Ancients. 500 Ancients were too much of a number. This battle will last long. Gladius switched position again.

Calamity is nowhere to be seen.

Penance Malum

Penance couldn't believe that so many had fallen for the plan. After he and Sword and Shield released their attacks a plentiful amount of ancients headed toward their old positions. Vigil suprised Penance by following the addition to his plan by getting face to face with a Kabutops with an iron head attack and heading back into the forest. Penance noticed some of the ancients pursing him and Sword and Shield starting heading toward Vigil. It was time to get their attention again.

Sprinting toward another part of the forest Penance formed another water pulse and fired it at the ancients cloest to Vigil, then he took a deep breath and fired off the loudest screech he could at the group. While he was trying to hit the group with his water pulse and screech it didn't really matter if he did, he just needed to redirect their attention and give Vigil enough time to find a good place to strike again. He turned his attention to the ancients that were at his old spot and sed confusion yet again, grabbing hold of a kabutops and flinging him at the rest of the group and fired off a water pulse to keep them on his trail. He couldn't risk having that group head back to the base. Just as he was about to move he felt the earth rumble and while it wasn't strong enough near his position to cause him harm it did cause him to stumble.

Twisting around Penance saw that the ground had opened and some ancient had fallen in. Soon after that another wave of water came roaring out of the forest and crashed into their enemies. Penance hadn't seen Sword and Shield battle before but was immensely glad that the snorlax was on their side. Penance regained his balance and retreated further. As long as they kept this up they could very well lead the ancients into the heart of the forest and just leave them there. If they led them far enough they would have enough time to free the prisoners and have some reinforcements by their side. Despite sprinting at full speed and knowing that his enemies could very much kill him if they caught him the golduck couldn't help but feel a little pride at the effectiveness of his plan surface in his mind.

Penance had not seen Calamity since they had started and assumed either the absol had managed to get inside amid the chaos, or was still outside waiting for more ancients to leave. Penance could barely see the outline of the base from his spot but he readied a water pulse and sent it flying toward the building. If he was lucky enough he would be able to hit an ancient or even the building itself and get another group interested enough to leave their posts thus having less guards to worry about when they went back to the base and for Calamity to have less obstacles to sneak around.

Penance yet again retreated and awaited Vigil to once again act as the bait. At the rate they were moving the ancients it would only a few more cycles of their routine before they would be able to slip away and help Calamity.

Forest near Torturehouse

As Zane retreated back into the security of the forest, Sword and Shield did the rest. The Snorlax gathered up his strength and released a massive Earthquake on the Ancients closing in. All they could do was stand in place as the attack quickly eradicated them. The fissures were indeed powerful, and Zane marveled at the strength of the Snorlax. But, that was to be expected. He was a Gold Tribe member, after all. He then finished off another batch with a geyser of Surf.

Quite a bit were taken out, but they were nowhere near done. Defender struck at a few more with water pulse, and the two changed positions once more. It was time for Zane to assume the bait role once more.

As he went out, though, he noticed something. More than half of the outside-patrolling Ancients were coming this way. Zane muttered something silently under his breath. The plan would have been more successful if pockets of the Ancients came at a time. But now, a good two hundred or so were on approach, ready to weed out the three of them. This would relieve pressure from Calamity to sneak in much easier, but it meant that the three of them were in a bind. With nowhere left to hide, Zane hid back into the forest as the Ancients started pouring in. Zane thought of what to do. He could try sneaking passed them here, but there would be no way to fight off the out two hundred or so next to the torturehouse, not to mention the others inside. In the end, if would probably be better to have them hide in the forest, and slowing start picking them off, but will they be able to hide effectively? Defender might not have that much of a problem, but Sword and Shield and Zane would.

With nowhere else to turn, and options running out, Zane broke the cover of a thicket and rammed right into a group of Ancients. From a distance, he saw Defender hiding not to far out. He silently motioned him on.

"Go help Calmity free the others! Sword and Shield and I will cover you!" He said, as he used a Thunder Wave at an Omastar.

There was no way Shield and Sword and Zane could effectively sneak in, so it was up to Defender and Calamity now to sneak in and save the others.

"Good luck." He said softly to Defender, who by now probably couldn't hear him.

The sound of the fighting of the forest drew scores of Ancients towards Sword and Shield's and Zane location. Zane nodded to the Snorlax, ready to take them head on.

Penance Malum

As Penance waited for Vigil to head back out again he couldn't help but a feel a rumbling sensation from the ground. Assuming that Sword and Shield had fired yet another earthquake Penance continued to look through the forest to find Vigil. When he turned around his eyes widened with suprise as he saw a vast amount of ancients heading their way. Penance quickly retreated as he couldn't help but feel a sense of guilt overcome him. He had lured in too many ancients with those last few water pulses he had thrown and had ruined the rhythm they had started. If they could pick off a few here and there they could possibly still continue the plan, but even that thought was quickly washed away as more ancients entered the forest. Dammit, we should have stayed together, maybe Vigil was right, Penance thought as he continued to retreat from the growing crowd.

As Penance continued to retreat he spotted a clearing up ahead and caught sight of Vigil who was motioning at him, "Go help Calmity free the others! Sword and Shield and I will cover you!" Vigil shouted as he turned toward an ancient and fired off a thunder wave at it. Penance nodded his head at his brother and scanned the area. He managed to see where the ancients were gathered and made a wide birth around them using whatever cover he could to sneak by. Since they were focused on Vigil at the moment Penance managed to sneak from cover to cover, trying not to create too much noise or too much movement.

It took some time to circle around them but eventually he managed to make it back to the silve base. Crouching behind some bushes Penance peered out and grimaced. There were still a sizeable amount of ancients hanging around the entrance. Penance couldn't see Calamity anywhere so he assumed that his brother managed to get inside safely, but now the task was to distract the ancients long enough to get inside to help.

Looking around Penance noticed some sizable rocks farther in the forest. Concentrating on the rocks Penance grabbed one with his confusion attack and flung it at a tree creating an audible thump as it struck. Penance peeked back out to see if the ancients had fallen for his ploy. If they hadn't the only thing Penance could do was try maybe one more time or even head out and attack them head on, but that was especially risky considering he had no one to back him up and if he got himself surrounded he could just consider himself dead.

Krystal walked throgh empty streets in Silver City. She'd had a pokemon teleport her there shortly after the incident in her volcano. The absol had lost control, and apparently Shadow, her former second in command, was not able to use mind control as well as he said he could. The absol had turned on her. It had been gradual, he would take an extra second or so before following instructions, but it got to the point of himtrying to find ways around the task he was given. Eventually the mind control snapped and the absol was in full control again. Krystal had killed him herself. Just a failed experiment in her eyes. Who knows, she might try again some other time.

A piece of paper fluttered in the wind, an old newspaper informing about the invading Silver Tribe. Krystal smilled. Gold Tribe was weak, they were not ruling their territory as they should have been. No, they allowed others to take power, the oh so noble pokemon. But Silver Tribe had beaten them in their weakness, and thus the rein of the golden pokemon ended, and a new age of government was ushered in. The paper continued to blow sideways across the street and into an alley, out of sight. Krystal continued onwards. She was supposed to be at the meeting of the Sentinels and Auron. If it had just been a meeting of Sentinels, Krystal probobly would not have gone, but with Auron.... Auron had given her the power she held, sho Krystal saw herself in debt to Auron and only Auron. She did not care much for the other Sentinels. They did not care much for her either. In fact, most of the Sentinels didn't like each other for one reason or another. Some found friendship in each other, but all were resented in the council by one or another. Even Auron did not have all supporters in his Sentinels, although whether he knew that or not, Krystal didn't know.

As she approached the citadel, the two guards at the gate stood to attention, saluted, then quickly opened the gate. Krystal paid them no mind. They were minions, drones, and heavily replacable. Everything was replacable in Krystal's eyes. Men could be replaced, cities could be repaired. Only the leaders were not replacable. Knowledge was not replacable. The archways were decorated with the Silver Tribe insignia. That was the one thing that she respected with the Sentinels, their leadership. Each one woulnd't be there unless they could command and had a drive for power, and Krystal was no exception.

The huge doors that led to the throne room opened with old damagesd hinges, creakiung open, as Krystal made her way through them into the throne room. She was supprised to see that most of the other sentinels were already there, save one. The walked to her seat, and then took a look around at the Sentinels gathered. Her eyes locked with Frost's for a moment, then both looked away. Neither liked each other, but last time there was fighting at a meeting of Sentinels......well, Auron wasn't happy. Most of the others Krystal did not care for, but the typhlosion, "The Inferno", she respected him. He had incredible power, and knew how to use it, and Krystal respected that.

Krystal's mind wandered as they waited for the last Sentinel to arrive.

Gladius Clipeum

The trio seemed to be succeeding in keeping the ancients busy and Calamity free to infiltrate the torture house. Gladius was starting to feel exhaustion; sending four consecutive area attacks really takes a toll on every Pokemon. Gladius stopped for a moment, and simple circled around the area, trying to regain his strength, waiting for another opportunity to strike. He saw Vigil appear again. But something seemed wrong. Instead of the usual number of Ancients that needs to be distracted, almost all of the remaining Ancients are heading for Vigil. He saw the Bisharp stopped for a moment, before retreating back to the forest. A few moments later, he heard a barely audible command by Vigil to Defender.

"Go help Calmity free the others! Sword and Shield and I will cover you!" An Omastar fell to a Thunder Wave. Afterwards he saw Defender near the entrance of the torture house. There were still many Ancients guarding the area. Gladius roared, and hit the ground again. The ground shook. A few more fell but that was not enough to secure Defender an easy entrance. Gladius only have moments to think. He burst out of the bushes, imitating Vigil. He grabbed the nearest Ancient and used Smack Down on it, sending it flying and crashing it with the nearest Ancient. He ran back to the forest, and circled it, hopefully confusing their adversaries. He bumped against Vigil.

"So it returned to the original plan? Split-up?" Gladius said to his brother. An Omastar appeared in front of him, but he was ready. He crashed against it with a Wild Charge. "I hope we know what we are doing."

Forest near Torturehouse

Zane saw Defender nod towards him, and then quickly move off towards the torturehouse. As the Ancients enclosed on them both, he stood side by side with Sword and Shield as he spoke to him.

"So it returned to the original plan? Split-up?" he asked.

"It appears so, to no fault of ours, though." Zane replied as the Ancients closed in.

"I hope we know what we are doing."

"So do I...so do I." Zane said softly, almost to himself. The Ancients were all around them now.

Zane started to move. He struck a Cranidos with a Night Slash, the attack ripping through his armored hide, and caused him to fall back. As to Kabutops charged at him from behind, he met their blows with his own powerful Iron Head. Zane could hear bones crack as he impacted with them. They were tough Pokemon, he was tougher. An Armaldo and a Cradily both attacked at Zane from the front. Using his superior mobility and agility, Zane jumped across their attacks, and struck at them both with Aerial Ace from above. The lightning quick attacks hit their mark, precisely. Both of the Pokemon fell back, but even more came. Zane fought them off, some individually, some one at a time as he flung different attacks towards their directions. Momentarily paralyzing an Omastar with a Thunder Wave, he moved in for the kill against two Bastiodons, who were charging at Zane now. Taking both down with a Night Slash, another attack hit him from behind, coming from an Archeops in the air. Zane struck another Thunder Wave at it, causing the Pokemon to fall close-by the downed Omastar. In unison, he attacked both of the down Pokemon with Iron Head. Panting a bit, Zane struck a stance, and only saw more coming. It was a seemingly endless wave of Ancients. If Defender and Calamity didn't free the others soon, Zane and Sword and Shield might not be able to withstand them all.

****************************************************************

Silver City Throne Room

The figure of the last Sentinel arrived. He was a Mienshao, known only by his title "Scar". He was silent and quick as he made his way to his seat. The 8 Sentinels had gathered, awaiting the news from what to do.

Suddenly, the seemingly inanimate Auron appeared to awake, and speak. His voice was cold and seemingly...distant. It was as if when he spoke, he was there, but he was "there". It was a shadow of the former Auron, the once heralded Gold Tribe member.

"The 8 Sentinels....are gathered....your instructions...." He said, as he eyed them. "...Beserker, Scar and Ignitus will provide escort for the General and Gold Tribe members....being transferred here....make way to the torturehouse there quickly...I sense...something unpleasant occurring...." His voice trailed off. Beserker spoke loudly.

"As you command, Auron."

Without acknowledging Berserker, he continued to speak. "Noxious and Sentry...you have a task in Eternity City that requires attention...information will be given there..."

Noxious and Sentry bowed as they began to depart. Auron addressed the last group now.

"Frostbite, The Deciever, The Inferno...I have an important task for you..."

His voice was low, yet mysterious and still quite frightening as he relayed the plan to the three of them. Soon, the Sentinels slowly began to depart for their assigned tasks, as Auron sat on his throne. He neither spoke to them, nor gave any more parting words.

Eventually, the great throne room was empty once more, and only Auron remained, a Pokemon beyond that of natural strength and power. A being now, they say, no other Pokemon can kill. He sat alone, nobody or nothing to have in his company, except for a strange crystal on a necklace around his neck...

"Well, it looks like I shall have to leave my mission to Poseida alone for now." Levin said. He and Frost had just received their secret orders from Auron, nobody knew what they were going to do, but it was known that it was a mission of pure destruction - just the kind Frost loved. "I can't wait, honestly. Nobody cares about your stupid little escapade to spy on what has already been destroyed." Frost replied. "Well, that was uncalled for." Levin answered, teasingly. "Nothing is ever called for, sweetie. You of all people should know that." Frost said, grinning. She had a very good recollection of the two's past. She knew everything about him just like he knew everything about her. That is, almost everything. Frost grinned again at the thought. "Now go on, old man, your petty rabble won't wait any longer." She said, referring to his army. The Deceiver scoffed, and was on his way. Frost decided to prepare as well. Before going, it was best to check up on the torturehouse to see if there was any unfinished business.

Indeed, there was. A lowly farmer, went by the name of Churchill, was still ready to be imprisoned. He'd been awaiting his grim fate for at least an hour now. "So, peasant, what did you do?" Frost boomed in the great main torture room in the house. A Machoke pushed the farmer out of the shadows, revealing his face. The farmer was no farmer, just a boy. "A farmer's child?" she teased. "Y-yes." the farmer replied, in what appeared to be an Irish accent. "He-" a Machoke began, but Frost cut him off. "Shut up, guard, I want the boy to explain his actions." she chided. The guard stepped back into the dark. The torturehouse, as always, smelled of death, the boy, a Snivy, flinched at the smell, deathly afraid. "I-I stole s-s-some celery from-m the g-g-uy n-next door." the poor boy stuttered. "Mmmhmm, and do you know who 'the guy next door is'?" Frost said, in a seemingly nice voice, which made the Snivy a little less afraid. "He has powerful connections, boy, and that's why you're here. To receive punishment." Frost teased, still. "Oh n-no, p-p-p-please! I-I'll repay him!" the boy half screamed half pleaded. "Yes, I'm sure you will." Frost said. She grabbed the Snivy's little arm and guided him to a simple wooden table. The table was made from weak wood, and it looked like it might break any minute. It was little, but it had several markings in it, like an axe had been lodged in it many a time. There were also blood stains on it, like everything else in the cursed room. "What-what will you do t-to me?" the boy started to resist Frost's grip, but she only tightened. "You'll see. I'll give you what every bad boy deserves." Frost giggled, she laid him on the table, sine he was too short to reach it, she had to lay him on it whole. "Now, extend your hand." Frost instructed. The boy did so, reluctantly. Before he knew it, Frost drew a butcher's knife from under the tale and held it high, she descended it upon the boy, who shut his eyes in terror. With a swift stroke, Frost cut off the boy's hand. The boy screamed out in pain, however tiny his voice was. Tears rolled down his cheeks. "You see, Churchill, this is what happens to naughty little boys. Because deep down in your heart, you know you deserve to be punished." Frost whispered. She then turned to the Machoke. "Take him to the holding cell, I'll deal with him later." she ordered. The Machoke rushed to the boy's side and picked him up, he then threw him in a cell at the end of the room. This cell was significantly larger than the prison cells, it was known as the holding cell. Frost put people in here when she was too busy to decide their fate now.

Before long she was back at the front ready with troops of her own. Frost approached Levin and Inferno. "Come boys, let us proceed. To Freedom, to . . . Liberty."

Hanso "TrueStriker" SharpEye
Torturehouse
No clue in Hanso's mind where in Valkaria he is...


If they hadn't chained his arms to the back wall of the cell, he would have tried to escape. Hanso bent his head to look at the chain that held his left arm flat for...the eighteenth time? He'd lost track of how many times he had looked down at his chains, looking for a weak link or trying to figure out how he could cut them with his arm-blades. Whoever had ordered this to be done was smart, though. He couldn't turn his arms enough to get one blade to strike the chain on the opposite arm, and none of the chains were above his elbows where he might have cut through them. Not to mention that he didn't think he could teleport out of this horrible place. He had no clear image, or idea, of what the torturehouse's surroundings looked like.

Hanso had wandered too close to one of the Silver Tribe's strongholds for his own good. He had been seen by one patrol of Ancients, then led them on a long chase before running into another group of Ancients. Every time Hanso struck down one Ancient, another Ancient or two would take its place. Overwhelming numbers wore him to exhaustion. Hanso had fainted...then woken up in the dark cell with his arms chained to the wall.

Hanso sighed, shaking his head. He did not know which torturehouse this could be, which meant that he had no image of the outside, which meant that he had no surety of surviving a teleportation outside to a nearby location. The interrogation he had gone through soon after waking up here had sapped enough of his energy that Hanso wasn't sure he could teleport to someplace far away with a surety of survival. And the food they'd given him just recently hadn't been filling.

Maybe he should try it, anyways. If that interrogation was anything to go by, then Hanso felt sure they would do worse next time, even if he didn't know much about the locations of other members of the Gold Tribe. Hanso began running through different scenarios, searching for a way where he could put his teleporting skill to good use.

Slap of an Ancient


As soon as Gladius had launched his Surf attack, I was off.

I ran through the forest, watching as the battle took off. It was only a moment before most of the Ancients had started attacking the area where the Surf had come from, so I slipped by while most of them were distracted. Even though many had ran off in the direction of the fight, there was still quite a few near the entrance. I needed to find a way by them without revealing myself.

I sat in the forest for a few moments, preparing myself with a series of Swords Dance. You could never be too careful, especially when invading a heavily guarded torturehouse. After a little while of thinking, I came up with the best plan that I could.

I stood up and glared at the Ancients through the bushes, copies of myself appearing all around me in the cover of the forest. They all ran off in different directions and began firing off attacks at the Ancients. Of course, the attacks would do nothing to the Ancients themselves, so the copies simply hit the areas near the Ancients, which was enough to grab their attention. The Ancients near the entrance ran off, and I ran into the doors. A moment later I broke the Double Team, slowing to regain my energy. Normally Double Team was no problem, but when I forced all of the duplicates off into different directions, making them perform different actions . . . it took a lot out of a teenage Absol.

I took a deep breath and resumed running, making sure to stick to the shadows and remain silent. I passed multiple Ancients that, luckily, did not notice me. After a few more moments of running, I had to stop and regain my sense of direction. I was in unfamiliar territory, with almost no prior knowledge on the area, and I needed to make sure that I didn't get lost. After I did a complete three-sixty, I started down another passageway that I believed was the right one.

And as soon as I turned the corner, I ran right into a wall, or perhaps a boulder. I took a step back and realized that it was neither - it was a Carracosta and Armaldo. Crap.

"INTRU-" the Armaldo began, but I cut him off with a Night Slash to the face. He stumbled backwards, hitting the wall and tripping to the ground. If it had not been for the fact that I was about to fight, more than likely for my life, it would have been rather comical.

"Let's not waste time lying down on the job now, Ulric," the Carracosta said as he glared at me. He raised his fin, swinging it at me from my left. I jumped backwards just as his fin would have made contact with me, so he ended up hitting the wall, creating a rather large hole as the stonde crumbled away.

Right, I thought, Carracosta have insanely strong jaws, and deliver extremely powerful slaps with their fins. I looked over the tortoise quickly, As long as I avoid his shell, I should be able to hurt him, but as for the Armaldo . . . , I glanced at the bug that was now getting back to his feet. His shell is a while other story. I will never be able to break past that, which doesn't leave me too many options. I jumped, kicked off the wall and used Night Slash on the Carracosta, striking the area on his neck that his shell didn't cover.

As I landed, I turned and used Psycho Cut, hitting the Carracosta in the stomache. I watched as the tortoise collapsed, not unconscious but at least stunned for a while, and I was about to turn on the Armaldo, but then I felt a tremendous amount of force on my rear end. I was sent flying, and once I landed I barely had time to say "Ow," before the Armaldo was looming over me. As he reached down, I felt the hair all over my body stand up as a faint electric current ran through them.

"Pathetic," the Armaldo muttered as his claw closed around my waist. He lifted me into the air, bringing his other claw up to slash me, and suddenly the faint electric current was amplified a thousand times over. A bolt of lightning formed and struck the Armaldo, causing him to cry out and stumble backwards once more. He fell down next to the Carracosta, paralyzed.

As soon as my feet made contact with the ground, I was off and running once more.

((OOC: Let's go, Defender~! :P))

Penance Malum

Penance gritted his teeth as he saw only a few of the ancients leave to investigate the noise he had made and there were still a good number loitering around the entrance. Rubbing his bracelet for another dose of extra luck Penance charged up a water pulse and threw it right at a Omastar. He quickly charged up another and threw it at a Kabutops as he sprinted throught the forest to another position. He found a new spot and readied a confusion when he saw the Kabutops he hit was striking out at the other ancients. Thank you water pulse, Penance thought. There had only been a few times when the confusion effect from water pulse kicked in and thanks to his good luck charm this time had been one of them.

The other ancients had looked slightly confused at the Kabutops' actions but started moving in to restrain their confused ally, and that was the opportunity Penance had been waiting for. The water type ran as fast as he could, making sure to pass behind the acient crowd with his eyes fixed on the entryway. He was soon inside and he placed his back against the stone wall panting not only from the exertion but also from the anxiety that had welled up inside him. He was inside a base belonging to the mortal enemies of the gold tribe which meant the odds that there were at least one or two silver tribe members in here were very high.

Penance quickly recovered and ran down the stone hallway. As he ran Penance began to relax. He thought a torturehouse might have mutliple passages or even a complex layout, but nope, there was only this one hallway and no signs of... damn it. Penance slowed to a stop as he came to an intersection of three passages heading in different directions. Taking a deep breath Penance once again rubbed his bracelet, thinking that it would give him a hint in which direction to go. He felt it move slightly forward. Opening his eyes Penance ran down the hallway in front of him and continued running down the hallways pausing every now and then to consult his bracelet.

His hope rose when he took yet another turn and soon came upon a Armaldo and a Carracosta. The Armaldo was lying on the ground while the Carracosta was getting up and looking pretty angry. It charged immediately and Penance barely had any time to dodge to the side. The Carracosta turned and slapped Penance with a fin causing him to tumble. A gold tribe member never stays down and Penance quickly rose his eyes glowing a bright blue and he grabbed the ancient with his confusion attack and slammed it against a wall. The ancient staggered up looking winded as Penance let out the loudest screech he could muster. The sound waves slammed into the Carracosta as it covered its ear holes with its flippers trying to block out the noise. Penance took that extra time to fire a water pulse at his enemy but it barely did anything to the enraged ancient as it opened its mouth readying a water attack, but Penance wouldn't let that happen. The golduck's eyes flashed a white color as he disabled his foes attack. The Carracosta looked suprised when it couldn't fire off its attack but it quickly recovered and ran at the golduck. Penance jumped off to the side but the Carracosta turned and grabbed the golduck's arm in its jaws and delivered a powerful crunch. Penance cried out as the Carracosta swung him around before throwing him at a wall. Despite the beating Penance still got up and threw another confusion attack at his foe. This seemed to be the Carracosta's limit as it groaned before it fell to the ground with a loud thud.

Not wanting to stay around to see if his little brawl had attracted any other challengers Penance ran down the passage. With the Armaldo and Carracosta obviously having been beat up before hand by someone else, Penance assumed Calamity had been the one to cross paths with them. Pennace rubbed his bracelet silently praying that Calamity wasn't too far down the passage.

So everything boils down to this. Gladius and Vigil were back to back defending their own lives from the oncoming horde of Ancients. Vigil started attacking from his side. He is a quick battler, taking down several Ancients with a one-two flourish. Gladius needed to do his thing. He faced the Ancients, defiantly. he could feel the power surging through his body and, literally, electricity begun flowing through his very veins. He could feel little sparks emit from his body. Even though it would normally hurt a Snorlax, Gladius could feel no pain. This is my own Wild Charge. Soon enough, a Kabutops came rushing at him. he faced the Kabutops head on, Gladius' hands on the Ancient's forehead. The Kabutops fell in a slump. He heard a heavy thumping sound behind him and saw a Carracosta. The Ancient raised its fin and lowered it at an incredible speed. Gladius just ducked in time.

"Woah!" Gladius shouted. The Carracosta raised it fin again, but Gladius was ready. He punched the Carracosta under its head, which knocked it out. The charge in his body died down. Something grabbed him from behind, then another one. And another. Soon, Gladius could feel the heaviness from his back. He roared. He tried to reach that something. He managed to grab a claw. He pulled it and saw that it was an Armaldo. Gladius smacked him down to the ground. He shook of the remaining Ancients. He tried looking for Vigil, but he couldn't find him. This is good I guess. Gladius used yet another Earthquake. It took down the Ancients in the immediate vicinity, but many more were coming. And Gladius is getting tired. He reached for the nearest Ancient, a Rampardos, and used it as a bat, hitting each Ancient with Rampardos' sturdy head. It seemed a barbaric strategy but it was working. But not for long. the Ancient seemed to understand what was happening and was dodging the blows. They started attacking from above. Gladius could not do anything except duck, and an occasional grabbing of an Ancient. Sweat began pouring from his forehead.

"C'mon Calamity and Defender. We need you now already."

Near Torturehouse

Zane was back to back with Shield and Sword, surrounded by Ancients. At that moment, he couldn't recall a more tougher fight he's been in. Sure, individual fights with Silver Tribe members were tough, but a constant barrage of Ancient after Ancient was physically and mentally exhausting. You had to constantly be on your toes, or you'll be surrounded with no way out.

Sword and Shield was holding his own, his strength was quite impressive, but even he couldn't hold on forever. If Calamity and Defender didn't free them soon, Zane and Gladius would be overwhelmed by Ancients. Two more Kabutops charged for Zane from behind. Feeling the weight of their legs from the ground, Zane on instinct jumped into the air, and struck at them with an Aerial Ace. The two fell back, and two more took their places.

"Ha..." Zane managed to get out. He was tired, and the endless wave was getting to him. He exerted another push of energy and release a Night Slash on another Cradily. His breathing was heavy. His feet shook. His arms hung at his sides. More Ancients closed in. For a moment, Zane felt as if he couldn't fight anymore, but then energy seemed to fill him again as he remembered what he fought for. Zane screamed as he went ballistic on a number of Ancients around. He rammed right into a Bastiodon, taking it off guard and finishing it with an Aerial Ace.

Next, he did a mass Thunder Wave on the immediate surrounding Ancient, giving himself a moment to breathe before more came in over the paralyzed bodies of the others.

"C'mon Calamity and Defender. We need you now already." He heard Sword and Shield say.

"They'll make it!" Zane said. "We just need to hold on!" Zane ran forward, using an Iron Head on an Anorith before it go a chance to attack back. Zane shot a look to the torturehouse, where he hoped to see them. Still no sign. They must have gotten inside already. Hopefully, they find the General and their brothers and sisters before it's too late.

*****************************************************************************************

En Route to Torturehouse

The 3 Sentinels sent to secure the torturehouse, Scar, Beserker, and Ignitus, ran at a steady pace, for the moment silent. Beserker was notably the slowest of the group, so the other two purposefully slowed down a bit so that he could keep up. They knew he wasn't meant for running anyways. Berserker could be heard panting behind Scar and Ignitus.

"Hold up, you two! You're going to...fast damn it!" He puffed, breathing heavily. Scar, a Mienshao, shot him a glare, but didn't speak. He merely kept the same pace. "Did you hear me?!" He yelled again.

"We have slowed down too many times for you already. If you do not hurry up, you will be left behind. I feel that our presence at the torturehouse will definitely be needed."

"What makes you think that?!" Beserker the Aggron asked.

"Intuition." Scar replied coldly.

Ancient after Ancient they came, and Ancient after Ancient Gladius knocked out. More sweat was pouring from his forehead but, he knew he could still hold on a little more longer. He felt drained, but he promised that he can fight until his very last. He employed different strategies, carefully switching when he felt that the Ancients were beginning to understand what he was doing. Gladius kicked an Armaldo to his left and punched a Bastiodon away to his right. Suddenly, he was grabbed to the air. He saw three Aerodactyls and an Archeops bearing his weight and dragging him to the air. He couldn't use any attack, since he is held onto his limbs. He tried shaking his body, but the Ancients' grip tightened. Gladius could not believe it. He is a Snorlax, a huge Snorlax but this Ancients could carry him! Whatever happened to his weight!

"Vigil! Help me!"

Krystal had been running for a while. Beserker had been falling behind, and she and Scar had to slow down so that he could keep up. It was irritating having to slow down for him, and they were delayed enough already. While in the city, Krystal had suggested that they find a pokemon that could just teleport them there, but Scar had quickly dismissed the idea, saying that "Teleporters are unreliable. we will go on foot." Ridiculous. Men and their refusal to just ask for help, and accept the ideas of a woman. But no, they had to be so high and mighty, they'll just walk. Krystal panted. Despite having to slow down, it was still a workout. The air had taken a colder turn. Fall was underway, winter was soon coming. The crisp air stung her lungs, and made small clouds as she breathed. The cold wasn't uncomfortable for her, being a fire type. Ice and snow didn't bother her, and she loved how clean the snow could look. And her enemies often had a harder time coping with the cold as well, giving her the advantage.

After hours of running, Beserker spoke up. "Hold up you two! Your going too... fast damn it!." He panted for a moment, breathing hard. "Didn't you hear me?"

Scar replied with chill in his voice. "We have slowed down too many times for you already. If you do not hurry up, you will be left behind. I feel that our presence at the torturehouse will definitely be needed." Silently, Krystal agreed with Scar. Maybe they should just leave him behind, they would certainly get there faster. If what Auron had said was true, that there was something going on there, the faster they got there the better.

Krystal missed what they said next, but Scar increased his pace, so Krystal did the same. Beserker swore again behind them, but also picked up his pace as best he could, chugging after them like a freight train. It was another hour before they could see the torture house. They slowed their pace as they came over a hill that overlooked the torture house from a distance. There was some thick woods on the other side of the field where many Ancients were converging, at least a hundred, if not more. Even with the great numbers of troops, whoever was on the other side appeared to be holding their own. An only one group of pokemon could hold their own against so many ancients. Just as Krystal was thinking it, Scar voiced her thoughts, spitting out the words as if they were a curse, "Gold Tribe."

As they surveyed the battle below them, Beserker came over the hill, panting and groaning. Scar and Ignitus payed him no attention, until he groaned and said, "I think I'm gonna..." And indeed he did. Krystal gingerly stepped away from him as he puked his lunch out onto the grass. As soon as Beserker finished emptying his lunch onto the field, Krystal spoke up. "Its been quite a while since I fought anybody decent. Lets go show Gold Tribe that we are in charge here." Scar nodded, grinning evilly, while Beserker grimaced, no doubt still exhausted from running all the way. Nevertheless, all three charged into the fray, prepared to show Gold Tribe who was boss.

As Zane fought a few more Ancients, he was interrupted by the screaming coming from Sword and Shield.

"Vigil! Help me!" He yelled. Zane turned to see Sword and Shield being holstered into the air by three Aerodactyl and an Archeops. Zane moved quickly, using a nearby Bastiodon as leverage to knock himself into the air, and jumped right on the back of one of the Aerodactyl. He charged his body and used a Thunder Wave on the Aerodactyl, the Ancient falling out of the air and onto the ground. The others still attempted to take Sword and Shield. Zane jumped from the falling Ancient onto the Archeops, using a Night Slash on its face. The Pokemon yelled, and loosened his grip on the Snorlax. The other two Aerodactyls, unable to keep holding onto the weighty Snorlax, let him go and dropped him back onto the ground with a giant thud. The two remaining Pokemon went now for Zane, who prepared to meet their claws with a Swords Dance. Zane could feel his blades sharpen, and met the two attacks of the Pokemon with a full on Iron Head. Fused with the new attack boost of the Swords Dance, the Pokemon fell out of the sky.

Zane went to check on Sword and Shield briefly, helping him up quickly, before again be surrounded by Ancients.

"Ready for Round 2?" He asked Sword and Shield, and dived forward to fight more Pokemon. He was weary, but for some reason, he wasn't feeling it at much at the heat of the moment. Perhaps it was the Swords Dance he used, or perhaps it was something much deeper. His pride.

A nearby Kabutops managed a Slash on Zane's back, who was busy fighting with a Rampardos. Screaming in pain for a moment, Zane knocked back the Rampardos, and turned to use a Night Slash on the Kabutops. He could still feel the tingle of the Slash on his back, but pressed on, trying his best to ignore the pain.

****************************************************************

Near Torturehouse (Silver Tribe)

The three Sentinels were on a hillside close by the torturehouse, indeed to the suspicions of Auron and the Sentinels, the Gold Tribe was there.

"Its been quite a while since I fought anybody decent. Lets go show Gold Tribe that we are in charge here."

Scar nodded, then saw as what he believed another Gold Tribe member entered the torturehouse.

"Heads up. I saw a Pokemon enter the torturehouse. We don't know how many are in there. Beserker, you deal with the ones causing a commotion near the forest. Ignitus and I will head into the torturehouse and see what we can find."

Still with an upset stomach, Beserker nodded, but seemed to get rejuvenated from the thought of fighting Gold Tribe members again.

"It's been a while!" Beserker yelled, heading down the hill to meet them, as Scar and Ignitus headed the other way.

(OOC In terms of strength, A Sentinel is about the same strength as a Gold Tribe member [being previous members of the Gold Tribe], but a Sentinel is probably a bit stronger. Greiger and Nakuzami should try to hurry up to avoid prolonged fights with them as well.)

Sainan Chuiseishu Arashi & Penance Malum
Calamity & Defender - Gold Tribe Members
Torturehouse Interior
Ancient Freedom


As Sainan ran down the seemingly endless corridors, he heard a loud screeching sound from the area where he had just battled the Armaldo and Carracosta. Why would there be screeching? The Armaldo should still be paralyzed, and if the Carracosta had managed to get to his feet, what reason would it have to screech? Unless it was alerting more Ancients . . .

. . . That was when Penance rounded the corner and nearly ran into Sainan. "Defender?" Sainan questioned as he took a step back, "What are you doing in here? Did something go wrong?"

"Oh, well, plans sometimes tend to fail, and sometimes they tend to go disastrously wrong." Penance chuckled uneasily, "Let's just say that we need to free the others now! Vigil and Sword and Shield are holding off the Ancients, but they don't have much time. You didn't happen to come across the prison already, did you?" Penance asked hopefully.

Sainan sighed, "Sadly, not yet, but I think we're getting close." With that, Sainan turned around and began to run once more. He glanced back every few moments to make sure that Penance was keeping up, occasionally slowing down to allow the Golduck to keep pace.

The two Pokemon rounded another corner and came upon a small room at the end of the corridor. At a glance the room would seem unimportant, but upon closer inspection there was a large group of guards, and behind the guards was "The key." Sainan glanced at Penance quickly. "Let's take out the guards, grab the key, and free the prisoners."

Penance nodded eagerly, "You got it!" he whispered. Looking among the guards Penance noticed a Kabutops as he readied a Water Pulse in his hands. "At the count of three let's take them by suprise. One . . . two . . . now!" Penance threw his Water Pulse at the Kabutops and grabbed an Omastar with a Confusion attack, throwing it against the wall.

"Jiyū no tame ni! Meiyo no tame ni! Kin-zoku no tame no!*" Sainan yelled as he rushed the Ancients. There were nine in total; one of each species. Sainan leaped into the air and launched a Psycho Cut, sending three of the Pokemon stumbling backwards. However, they quickly recovered and rushed Sainan and Penance.

The Rampardos ran at them both with a Head Smash, the Kabutops attacked Penance with a Giga Drain and the Archeops flew in towards Sainan with Acrobatics. Sainan launched a Thunder attack, knocking the Archeops out of the air, but as he did so the Rampardos focused its attention on Sainan, ramming him with Head Smash with incredible force, sending the Absol flying down the corridor.

Penance staggered back from the powerful Giga Drain, but he quickly recovered and let out a Screech at the Ancients. While some reeled back from the noise, the Carracosta managed to dodge the attack before it ran right at Penance, opening its jaws wide and Crunching down hard on Penance's arm. The Golduck cried out and struck out with psychic energy, throwing his foe against the wall.

The other Ancients had managed to recover from his Screech and about half of the force headed his direction while the other half headed toward Sainan. The Kabutops readied its scythes and struck out with a Slash attack, managing to draw blood from Penance's arm. The Carracosta rolled up into a ball and began to roll right at Penance, but the Golduck managed to use Confusion to redirect the Ancient at a stone wall. The Omastar opened its mouth as white spikes flew out and began to slam into Penance. The Golduck could only hold up his arms defensively as the spikes embedded themselves into his skin. As soon as the Spike Cannon ended Penance grabbed the Omastar with another Confusion and flung him down the passage.

Sainan stood once more and ran back down the corridor, readying his claws as the Cradily, Aerodactyl, Rampardos, Bastiodon, and Archeops all rushed towards him. The Armaldo was out of sight, but after a moment Sainan looked up and noticed something rather odd that should have been painfully obvious. The Armaldo had its claws dug into the ceiling, holding itself up right above Penance as it readied an attack.

"Defender, look up and defend yourself!" Sainan yelled as he slashed at the five Ancients before him with Night Slash. They were stunned for less than a second before they all rushed Sainan and bombarded him with a flurry of attacks. Sainan managed to leap out of the carnage, but not before he received a few gashes in various places. He had leaped towards the wall, before he turned, placed his feet on the wall and used the momentum from his initial jump to launch himself over the Ancients. As he did so, he loosed a wicked blast of Thunder.

Penance looked up as he saw Sainan high up in the air, unleashing a huge blast of lightning in different directions. There was no doubt that if that blast hit him he would be out like a light. The Golduck barely dodged a bolt that nearly hit him, and as he fell to the ground he saw the Ancients get shocked the powerful attack.

All the Ancients, save the Cradily, cried out as the Thunder attack struck them and Penance could only watch, awestruck, as each Ancient fell to the floor with a loud thud, leaving only the Cradily, Rampardos, and Bastiodon standing. The Cradily was the only one out of the three that looked like it could still survive a few more attacks. Grinning, Penance formed two Water Pulses in each hand and threw them at the Rampardos and the Bastiodon. That was the last straw for the two as they soon joined their allies on the ground, leaving only the Cradily standing.

"Time to end this," Sainan growled as he ran at the Cradily, his claws poised to shred the Pokemon to bits with the extra power from the Swords Dances that the Absol had previously performed. He leaped at the Cradily with a Night Slash while Penance held it in place with a Confusion. Sainan slashed at the Cradily wildly, and in a moment it was sprawled acrossed the ground, along with the other eight Ancients.

"Now that that's over," Sainan walked over and retrieved the key. A moment later, the Absol and Golduck had disappeared down the hall in search of the prison cells. It only took a few more moments before the noise - and the smell - of the prisoners became apparent. Sainan sniffed the air for a moment before he began to lead Penance down a series of passages.

In no time at all, the two were entering an area filled with prison cells. After a brief moment to take in the scene, Sainan was running around and unlocking cells. It wasn't long before they were all open, and while Sainan was incredibly glad that he had just freed all these prisoners, he was extremely disappointed . . . his father was not among them. He cursed at himself silently; he should not have gotten his hope up.

"Defender, we have to go rejoin the others," Sainan stated as the freed Pokemon congregated in the corridor. "Everyone, we have to get going, immediately. It shouldn't be long before the rest of the Silver Tribe hears about our little jailbreak." Sainan sounded deadly serious as he addressed the others. He glanced at Penance once more, and in a flash all of the Pokemon were weaving through the halls, right out of the torturehouse and into daylight.

That's when Sainan noticed the sentinels. "Crap," the Absol muttered, a lack of better things to say.

((OOC: "For freedom! For honor! For the Gold Tribe!*" Or . . . at least, that's what it's supposed to be. Blame Google Translate, lol.))

Gladius Clipeum, Gold Tribe


Vigil helped him get down from the flying Ancients. "Thanks!" He fell with a loud thud! which comically caused some nearby ancients to stagger. Gladius immediately stood up and used a Wild Charge again on some Ancients. The wave seemed endless, but he could feel that the end is near. Very near. Gladius estimated that it has been almost an hour since Calamity entered the torture house, and Defender followed. They would have located the prisoners by now.

"Ready for Round two?" Vigil asked. Gladius simply roared in reply.

Gladius exhausted his Wild Charge, and begun charging up another Surf from the still-erupting geyser. He sent another flood towards the Ancients, did another Earthquake. A good number fell. Vigil had a Swords Dance boost, Gladius saw. If he is not that tired, he could of course have used Belly Drum which would bring him to his maximum power. But, of course, he couldn't. He would become more vulnerable to attacks and easier to fall. If there is no more hope, then I would probably will.

However, a strong sense of foreboding was felt by him. He Smacked Down a Carracosta, and used its body to swing around to clear the area around him, to give him some time to rest. He relaxed a bit, as the nearest Ancient is still a few yards away from him. That's when he looked up. And what he saw is not the most welcoming sight ever.

Alex Ares the Aggron was coming their way. He was better known by his title, "Berserker." And he is a Sentinel. Now, things got serious.

Replicus "Speculum" Decendas
Gold Tribe


Replicus paced about in his small, cramped up cell. His shoulder still hurt after numerous attempts to break the door down, but he hadn't given up hope. He had been pretty discouraged about the fact that he'd nearly given up before. He had to trust his Gold Tribe instincts, get outta here, and win this war.

Unfortunately for Replicus though, his plans were running out fast. The room was pretty small, it had only one door which Replicus couldn't open no matter what. There were no windows. The Ditto had thought about some kind of ventilator or shaft in the room, but unfortunately that was locked as well. There was no way out, until somebody from the outside managed to break in here, fight through hordes of Ancients, get the key, and then try to free them. This all was, of course, a suicide mission, and either a really brave or really stupid Pokemon would come here with anything less than an army.

But completing such impossible, suicide missions was the Gold Tribe's specialty. Replicus hoped that the Gold Tribe had actually infiltrated the torturehouse and embarked on the suicide mission. But he couldn't entirely leave his escape to chance, so he started formulating plans again, thinking about every little detail of the room. Maybe he could use something to break out? He closed his eyes, lost in thought...

He jumped when he heard some Pokemon outside chatter loudly. How did they get out of their cells? Then, almost as if somebody wanted to answer his question, a key clicked inside the lock of his own cell. Replicus pushed the door open, and saw an Absol opening all the doors to the cells, and the prisoners rejoicing, savoring their new found freedom.

"What are the odds?" Replicus thought, smiling to himself. He was pretty glad he had been rescued and not killed. He was pretty sure the Pokemon who had come to rescue him were actually Pokemon from the Gold Tribe, so when all Pokemon rushed out of the torturehouse, he tried to converse with the Absol. He seemed to have a companion called Defender, which seemed a lot like a title of a Gold Tribe member.

"Hey, you from the Gold Tribe by any chance? My name's Replicus Decendas, title Speculum." Replicus said, but then he noticed that the Pokemon's attention was directed at something else. Replicus turned around to see the three sentinels racing towards them. One of them, an Aggron, also called Berserker raced towards the group of Pokemon.

"Crap" The Absol beside him muttered. Replicus chuckled, and said, "Just what I wanted to say..." before he raced towards the Sentinel, bracing himself for combat.

Torturehouse

As General Hazone and Kirvir spoke, noise was suddenly being heard outside. Hazone leaned over closer to the door as he spoke.

"Did you hear that? Something is happening outside." Hazone's voice was questioning, yet also hopeful. Something, hopefully something good, was attracting the attention of the Ancients.

The noise grew closer and closer, until he heard the unlocking of the metal of the torturehouses. People were being freed! Another second later, their cell door swung open. Hazone was amazed. He looked upon their rescuers. One was an Absol with blue eye. He was a bit taller than most other Absols. The other, a Golduck with a bracelet on his left wrist, made with various colored rocks. But it wasn't those appearances that mystified Hazone the most. It is the other ornament that they wore. Even in the darkness of the torturehouse, the ornaments shone brightly. The Absol carried it around his neck, the Golduck on his bicep. There was no mistaking it.

These were members of the Gold Tribe.

Hazone eagerly left his cell followed by Kirvir as the two freed other cells, and led the prisoners out. Among the other prisoners was a Ditto and a Gallade. Those were two he did not know. The other dozen or so were soldiers of the Alpha Alliance that fought under him in Gold City.

He heard the Ditto speak to the Absol, acknowledging that he too was in the Gold Tribe. Hazone could not believe at that point that there were so many still around. It was quite a welcoming sight.

As they made their way out of the torturehouse, the group stopped. Hazone placed a hand in his face because of the bright light, something he had not seen in a very long time now. As his eyes adjusted, though, he saw around the large number of Ancients present. But there were three figures around that made things worse. Three Pokemon all Alpha Alliance soldiers were familiar with. One of them headed down the opposite side of the hill, where two other Pokemon were fighting off hoardes of Ancients. He couldn't tell who they were, but Hazone guessed they were also Gold Tribe members. There were two now, however, that headed towards them. One was a Mienshao named Scar. Another was a Flareon named Ignitus. Both were Sentinels.

The Ancients were slowly gathering around the opening of the torturehouse as well. Hazone spoke to the Absol and the Golduck.

"I suggest we find a way around them. The escapees of the torturehouse are in no condition to fight an army of Ancients, much less two Sentinels! We have to get out of here, noble Gold Tribe members."

Near Torturehouse

As Zane took a short rest from fighting the Ancients, the nearest one a few yards away, he noticed Gladius looking towards a hill. Zane looked as well to see what caught his attention.

"Damn." Zane said under his breathe. He knew the Pokemon. Long ago, before the war between the Gold and Silver Tribe, he was once known as "Armoid" and was one of the veteran Gold Tribe members. He was also once Zane's friend. Now, he is known as Beserker, and is a Sentinel.

"What luck! Two Gold Tribe members in one day!" Beserker yelled as he made his way down the hill. He motioned for the Ancients to stand back. The Ancients complied and moved to form a circle encircling Zane, Gladius, and Beserker.

"Give me a challenge!" He yelled. From the corner of his eye, Zane saw the escapees of the torturehouse. He whispered to Gladius.

"Sword and Shield, we have to find a way out of here. We're in no condition to fight him right now. Besides, it looks like Calamity and Defender pulled through. We have to get out of here and get everyone back to Liberty Town."

As Zane said this, Beserker was seen preparing an attack. Zane looked to the left and right. Ancients were all across. Zane assumed a stance.

"We have to think of something." Zane said to Gladius. A second later, Beserker fire a Flash Cannon right at the two Gold Tribe members.

Gladius Clipeum


Berserker, once known as Armoid, finally reached the area where Gladius and Vigil stood ground. Gladius remembered a few battles where he worked with Armoid and, from experience, he knew that Berserker is a formidable foe. As the Aggron approached them, Gladius saw him snicker. He was confident of battling the two of them and has complete reason to do so. He is, from Gladius' estimate, three times stronger than Gladius and Vigil combined.

"What luck! Two Gold Tribe members in one day!" Berserker shouted. The remaining Ancients formed an unbreakable circle around the combatants. "Give me a challenge!" Berserker circled, waiting for the Gold Tribe members to make the first move.

"Sword and Shield, we have to find a way out of here. We're in no condition to fight him right now. Besides, it looks like Calamity and Defender pulled through. We have to get out of here and get everyone back to Liberty Town," Vigil whispered. Gladius looked to where Vigil pointed. Gladius saw Calamity and Defender, along with General Hazone, a Breloom, Replicus, and other members. He also saw that, despite Replicus' look, all were too fatigued to battle any more, let alone a Silver Tribe member. Gladius knew that Vigil is right. They need to end it quickly, or escape. However...

BOOM!

Gladius was hit by a Flash Cannon by the Berserker. He fell down. "Aargh!" He tried standing up, but he was too much tired to do it. He let himself lie down, feeling the soft mud, resting. If he was not that tired, he could mount a challenge, but the skirmish with the Ancients took the toll out of him. In an instant, he had a flashback of his mother, his father, the dead Gold Tribe members, and Vigil still fighting alongside him. Gladius tried to stand up once again and, though still shaky on the knees, managed to stand up.

"There is no way we can escape unscathed Vigil. We still need to mount a fight. Freedom is just beyond Berserker and these Ancients. We need to continue fighting," Gladius determinedly said. "I will still fight." Gladius is ready to give his all. He used Belly Drum, draining most of his remaining energy. "It is time to get serious," Gladius roared, and charged at Berserker. That seemed reckless, but that is all Gladius can do. Attack, and think later.

Penance Malum

Penance could barely keep in his joy as they ran through the base. The only things that could stop them were the ancients they had kept outside, but they were small fry. With so many gold tribe members and alpha alliance members here to help they could push past the mob relatively easily, head over to help Sword and Shield and Vigil with their own foes, and then head back to Liberty Town as heroes! When the group made it outside Penance hadn't been expecting to find two pokemon that were not ancients. Sentinels he thought. He hadn't been in the gold tribe when these silver tribe members had left but when they had returned he had heard plenty about them from his brothers and sisters. Just based on what he had been told he could identify the Mienshao as Scar and the Flareon was Ignitus.

"Crap." He heard Calamity mutter. While Penance wouldn't stoop to using cuss words he could agree with the general feeling that his brother was conveying.

"I suggest we find a way around them. The escapees of the torturehouse are in no condition to fight an army of Ancients, much less two Sentinels! We have to get out of here, noble Gold Tribe members." General Hazone said. Penance silently agreed, but someone else, a Grovyle, was already heading toward them no doubt attempting to face them head on. If what the General said was true than the Grovyle wouldn't last even a minute against the two sentinels.

"Cover your ears!" He shouted as he let out a loud screech at the two sentinels, hopefully the Grovyle had heard him and managed to leap out of the way. If his screech could just daze the sentinels for a few seconds they could at least have enough time to get into the forest and have more time to make a plan to get to Sword and Shield and Vigil and make their way back to Liberty Town.

Hanso had already discarded a few plans. Teleporting straight out of here wasn't the best idea, and fighting his way out of the building would depend on whether he ever got the chance to use his armblades. Also not the best idea, partly because of his current condition and partly because there would most likely be more than a few Ancients. Hanso glanced down at the armband, worn on his right upper-arm, that bore his Gold Tribe emblem. How had he let himself get caught, anyways?

Hanso's train of thought was interrupted when his ears caught a dim sound. Screeching?... He hadn't heard any of that before. Had someone been able to break in? Why hadn't I done that? Hanso thought. His hopes were realized when he began to hear talking outside his cell and, in time, a key rattling in the door's lock. Within minutes, Hanso was out of his cell and among the other prisoners that had been freed. He identified the other Gold Tribe members by the insignia that their ornaments bore. Of course, who else would free prisoners from a torturehouse?

"Everyone, we have to get going, immediately. It shouldn't be long before the rest of the Silver Tribe hears about our little jailbreak."

It was the Absol that had unlocked Hanso's cell. As the others began leaving the room, the Gallade let them pass before taking up the rear, watching his sides and back as they moved through the corridors. One reason why he did so was because, during his interrogation, one of his legs had been a victim of torture. It still hurt, and Hanso was left limping. Why weren't there more Ancients? A jailbreak like this should have roused all of the guards, unless this place was only scarcely guarded.

In time, they had left the confines of the torturehouse. After his eyes had adjusted to the sunlight, Hanso pushed his way forward to stand near the other Gold Tribe members...and wished he hadn't been able to see yet.

"Crap," he heard the Absol mutter. A Grovyle, from the looks of it, then said, "Just what I wanted to say..." before rushing at least one of the Sentinels.

Hanso was in full agreement. There were huge numbers of Ancients and three Sentinels, one of which was about to square off with two more Gold Tribe members, with many Ancients forming a circle around them. And the prisoners and rescuers were now being surrounded by more of the Ancients.
At least now Hanso knew where all the guards were.

"I suggest we find a way around them. The escapees of the torturehouse are in no condition to fight an army of Ancients, much less two Sentinels! We have to get out of here, noble Gold Tribe members."

That was a Dragonite speaking. Personally, Hanso felt like rushing in and fighting his way out, like the Grovyle. His leg wasn't in a condition to do so. The Gallade edged closer to the Dragonite and the two Gold Tribe members, wincing as his leg complained. Watching as the Golduck let loose a Screech, Hanso quietly said, "I could probably teleport a few of us out at a time." It wasn't much of an idea, but hey, the Dragonite had asked for a way out. In his own condition, teleporting was the most Hanso could do at the moment.

The crisp grass crunched underfoot as Ignitus and Scar charged towards the prison. Beserker had gone off to fight the other two Gold Tribe members by the forrest, while they ran towards the prison to stop the prison break from occuring. Ignitus quickly ran through what she remembered about the prison here. She knew that one of the generals of the Alpha Alliance had been imprissoned here, as well as a large number of rebels who had opposed them. Most notably a ditto who had caused quite a bit of trouble. If they had to engage all of the prisoners in a fight, there could be trouble. Then again, if there was one thing the torture houses where good for, it was breaking a prisoner down both mentally and physically. The prisoners would be weak and scared, and might not stand up to much of a fight. The Gold Tribe members on the other hand, they would be tricky. Ignitus was confident they the two of them could overwhelm the Gold Tribe members, but with all of the prisoners on their side? Difficult. If only there was a way to sepparate the Gold Tribe members from the other prisoners, or at least cause mass panic among them. Then the fight would become much easier and they might be able to end this quickly. Ignitus quickly scanned the area, looking for any advantages in the quick few seconds before they the battle began. The prisoners would be looking for escape, and the forrest a few hundred meters away from the prison would be a prime option. As the two Sentinels ran, Krystal quickly explained to Scar, "They will want to go to the forrest. I'll cut them off, you attack from the front." Scar nodded and they split up. Ignitus quickly used a flame charge, and as she did so, an ear piercing sound eminated from one of the prisoners. Pain erupted in Ignitus' head, her head felt as if it would split apart. She faltered, but continued running. Although the noise was painful, it would not stop her. She looked back and saw that Scar too was grimacing at the pain, but continued nevertheless. Focusing back on her task, Ignitus poured more energy into the flame charge, igniting the dry long grass between the prison and the forrest. The grass really was perfect for burning. The autumn had left them dry with very little water, and the cool air was perfect to fuel the flames. She continued parallel to the group of prisoners and the forrest, then started to loop back to attack the main group. It seemed as if not all of the prioners had been prepared for the earsplitting sound either, which was now slowly fading, and many prioners that were already weak had their heads in their hands. It really was perfect for her. The noise had caused confusion among the group, which would make any fighting easier for her. As she sprinted over to the group of prisoners, her flame charge now starting to end, she noticed a dragonite, weary, but still noble looking. It must be the General, she thought. She immediately targetted him first, and any Gold Tribe members would probably be around him to protect him. She quickly used superpower, and charged into the group throwing the confused prisoners left and right, like scattered bowling pins. Scar, too, had gone for the General and leapt from pokemon to pokemon taking them out. She reached the group first, seeing a group of Gold Tribe members surrounding the General. "Ah, good. I needed some good practice." She eyed them down, looking for any with weaknesses. She eyed a particularly aggresive Grovyle. "Ah yes, some of you will burn quite nicely." Then she unsleashed a flame thrower at the group, then used shadow ball a few times while the enemy was blinded by the wall of fire. She couldn't see either, but she hoped that at least a couple of her shadow balls would find targets.
