The Legend of Okoto

Postby Vezyon » Tue Oct 13, 2015 9:16 pm

Chapter 1:
Ekimu stood, hammer in hand, gazing out at the wondrous city that he lived in. He was in the doorway of his forge and had just finished a good days work in making masks. Makuta was still inside, tinkering with some mast or other, comparing his with ones that Ekimu had made, looking for flaws in his work, trying to find out why his were loved less than Ekimu’s. Ekimu smiled at the thought, little did Makuta know that the secret lay in the Mask of Creation he wore, Makuta wearing the Mask of Control therefor could not hope to compete. Makuta had tried many times to use his mask to control the villagers, trying to make them love his masks. but all he could succeed in was ending up with mindless slaves. so he released them and tried making his maks better, but he didn’t realise that his masks were the best they could be already, and that Ekimu had simply cheated in a sense to make his better. There was always a competition between the brothers, and when Ekimu inherited the Mask of Creation from his father he told nothing about how he used it to his brother as a way to amuse himself. From inside the forge came an exclamation of disgust and and distinct clang of a mask being hurled against the wall, Ekimu smiled again, then walked down to his house. The next morning was Ekimu and Makuta’s day off from their work, and they spent the day with the villagers. Makuta had only a few supporting friends among the villagers, and with them he went to the Crystal Caves, far below Okoto’s surface. Ekimu however had many friends, and he spent the day walking through the city and talking to them, and peace was over the island. But sadly, it was not to last, a shadow fell across the island, as terrified eyes looked to the sky. Hanging suspended above them was a great airship, and from it was falling many canisters. Now the people of Okoto were a peaceful sort, and had never dealt with anything worse than the occasional Scopio or rampaging animal, each element had a Protector who was a villager designated to watch over the people of his element, and they were the only ones who knew how to fight, except for the Arena champions like Slicer or Basher (for the champions were given promotional names to use in the Arena). When the canisters hit the ground they opened and out came hideous spider-like creatures. They were called Skull spiders, and they attacked the city in force. At one Tahu, the Protector of Fire summoned the other Protecters, Gali, Pohatu, Onua, Kopaka and Lewa. He also summoned the Arena champions to aid the defence. Ekimu was not idle, he grabbed his hammer and helped the Protectors and champions, but they were fighting a losing battle, for the sheer numbers of the Skull Spiders out matched the skill and determination of the city’s defenders. Makuta at that time came back from the Caves, and seeing what was going on he took out his hammer and attacked the rear of the army of Skull Spiders. This distracted them enough for the defenders to regroup and redouble their efforts, driving the Skull Spiders from the city. The airship was long gone, but Ekimu swore he would find who sent it, and make him pay.

Chapter 2:
Ekimu left soon after, going in the direction the ship was heading when he last saw it. Makuta stayed in the city, making masks, and trying to find Ekimu’s secret. The Protectors however, began classes, teaching the villagers how to fight, for their defencelessness when the Skull Spiders attacked was alarming, and they needed to be able to defend themselves.
Ekimu was in the middle of a vast ocean, sitting inside a small boat he had made for the trip. He looked around, he had been traveling for days and Okoto was lost to view completely, and all he could see was water in every direction. should have brought Gali with me, but it’s too late for that now he thought. After days more of traveling he began wondering if he was moving at all. He was getting ready to give up when a storm struck, it raged with such a ferocity that Ekimu’s little boat was nearly smashed to splinters by the tremendous waves. Should have brought Gali AND Lewa he thought as a wave the size of Okoto crashed down upon him. The Ship capsized and Ekimu was thrown into the sea. He sank to the bottom, unable to swim. He felt his lungs fill with water, then he blacked out and knew no more.

Ekimu awoke on the shores of a strange island. He lifted his head, coughing and spluttering. When he was able to breathe again he looked around, he was on a sandy beach, with a lush jungle nearby. He stood up, brushing sand off his mask and started walking into the jungle, looking for something to eat, for he was weak with hunger. He soons found a Madu Fruit tree. He ate a few of the delicious fruits as his meal, though it was hardly enough. He moved on after he was done eating, hoping to find some clue as to where he was. Before long he came across a chain link fence, and on a big sign in the middle of the gate was Makuta’s symbol. Ekimu frowned, inside the fence was just more jungle, but he was suspicious now. He pulled out his hammer and smashed a portion of the fence down, then went forward to see what his brother was up to.

Chapter 3:
Inside the fence was just jungle, as Ekimu had first seen, so he walked on. After an hour or so he saw a building through the trees. He kept going until he came out into a clearing, in the middle sat a large factory, but it was dormant. Ekimu stepped up to the front door, and once again he saw Makuta’s symbol, but this time it was scratched out as with huge claws. He looked about, there were signs of a struggle all around, the grass was dead, single claw marks covered the ground, and there were bloodstains all over. Ekimu, turned back to the door, pressed his ear against it, and listened. He heard nothing for a moment, but soon he heard what he expected, the sounds of some huge creature behind the door.
“Oh brother,” said Ekimu “what have you done?”
He instantly regretted the voicing of what he felt, for apparently the creature behind the door heard him, and started bashing against the door. Ekimu backed away, hammer in hand, the monster had made a giant dent in the door, and it was only a matter of time before it gave way. WIth a final slam the door fell out, and from the factory stepped a nightmare.

Chapter 4:
Ekimu backed away, hammer ready, from the doorway there stepped - or crawled rather - something out of a villager’s dreams after he‘d eaten too much Scorpio meat. It had 6 legs, with a claw at the edge of each, 8 bulbous eyes stared out from it’s hideous face, while mandibles that dripped with venom moved grotesquely. With a snarling roar the monster leaped at Ekimu, who leaped aside just before the creature landed. when it died it turned rapidly, using two of its limbs to weave a net out of a whitish substance that came from it’s rear. when it finished (which took only a few seconds) making the net it threw it on Ekimu with a terrible speed. The substance was sticky, and was strong beyond anything Ekimu had seen before. While struggling to get free Ekimu processed the situation. the monster attacking me is some sort of spider, and the substance is it’s webbing. Makuta had created it, or at least had a hand in creating it. he thought but wait, spider….. the Skull Spiders that attacked the city, were those Makuta’s creations too, or someone else’s? and if Makuta’s….. why?
all these thoughts passed through it mind in a second, in which he managed to get partway free, whole the spider closed in, mandibles frothing venom. With a last desperate struggle, EKimu got free, and stood on his feet, strands of web still clinging to him. The spider gave another roar and charged, and Ekimu swung his hammer. The tool collided with the spider’s hideous face and it was flung several yards away where it landed sprawling on it’s back. But like lightning it flipped back to it’s feet and charged again. Ekimu waited until the last second, then sidestepped, the spider propelling itself into the wall of the factory, temporarily stunning it. He broke into a run, heading for the beach he woke up on. On the way he tripped on something, .glancing back he saw it was the discarded carcass of a villager. Ekimu kept on running, and had made it to the jungle when the spider recovered, and with quick stealthy movements, began to stalk Ekimu through the trees. after several minutes, Ekimu stopped, he knew that somewhere, those eyes were watching him, waiting for the time to strike. also he remembered that he had been shipwrecked, and there was no time to build another boat with that monster on his tail. he turned back, and bolted to the factory, hoping to barricade himself inside an inner room and then have time to come up with a plan before the beast broke in. He had just made it to the front door when the spider came out of hiding, charging with terrifying speed. Ekimu stopped, and grabbed a wooden beam from the rubble that lay near at hand, and threw it. It hit the monster right in the eye, gouging it out. The Spider stopped short, writhing in pain, shrieking and frothing. Ekimu ran inside, and entered the first room he found, a laboratory. once inside he shut and locked the door, then piled up desks and equipment and everything in the room against it. one table wouldn’t move, so Ekimu swept all the beakers and tools and equipment off, all but on empty bottle that is, for it refused to move. Ekimu shrugged and went to move the table again, but it still would not move. He stopped, there was something beyond the obvious here, he tried, to pick up the bottle, but that didn’t work, so he tried tipping it is several directions, it still didn’t move, until he tipped it the right way, and it moved. The table moved aside with a section of the floor, revealing a ladder down into a tunnel. The spider creature had recovered somewhat, and was now in an animalistic murderous rage. It pounded on the door, and after a few pounds it started to give way. WIthout another thought Ekimu climbed down the ladder to the tunnel, and the table and bottle returned to their original places. THe door gave way the the Spider burst unto the room, scanning it with it’s 7 eyes, it’s quarry was not there, it moved all through the room, and found no one. That made no sense, this is where the meal went, where did it go? the monster roared in frustration, and left the room. Ekimu had reached the bottom, and the stood there, leaning on the ladder, trying to piece together in his mind what he had learned, and trying to think of a way to get home, and when he did, he was going to have a long talk with Makuta. hefting his hammer to his shoulder, he walked on through the tunnel.
