Marine101 Wraith of the Pirate King Arc 4: Baaijing
April 5, 1815 Baaijing
Episode 2: Dangerously Fast! Into the Lavender Plains
Anthony was walking in the Lavender Fields with cautions, out here danger can come at you from any direction. Once he got to the village he saw a person standing alone, this probably was Ming-Hoa his grandfather mentioned. Once Ming-Hoa saw him he was quite relieved that someone came to help them in their village, things are getting hectic so they need all the help we can get.
|Oh thank you for coming I know that the marines are quite busy, Lavender Fields have been taking most of the trouble when the warlord began to attack. His men have been destroying our homes to clear us out of this place, he has someone out here controlling them yet I don't know who it is. He is hiding somewhere for that which I know is true, we're going to need a few clues to help us with this matter. Although we are in trouble doesn't mean a marine cant help us out, first were going to have to fight someone to get a good clue. I happen to know what enemy you can start with, down the path closes to us are warriors called Piaw Chong Poison Throwers they aren't that far. However I must warn you that they are deadly so you must be extremely careful, hopefully you have your friends with you to ease your troubles. Once you get the clue bring it back to me for examining it, then we can continue on looking for the leader out here. However you cant do it while your talking to me, go fight the poison throwers I will be right here waiting for you.| Nodding Anthony left the area to find the poison throwers.
Anthony has to be very careful dealing with these guys, they are not only fast but deadly as well. It wasn't going to be long before he finds then, yet I have a feeling that they are going to find Anthony first. As he took on step he was almost hit with s poison dart that hit the ground, sure enough he found the poison throwers ready for battle. They were a type of musketeer making things a little tougher, yet with his brigade he was able to even the odds greatly. After a good two hours he was able to defeat them all, he found a small note on them, although he wasn't familiar with the language he thought was certain that Ming-Hoa might know what it is. Going back to him he gave him the not to examine for a moment, although it wasn't the beat clue he knew that this was only part of it.
|Although this isn't the best clue its a great start for us, you see Anthony this is part of the clue that we need. Its talking about the leaders hideout somewhere near the end of the path, however where it says specifically is still unknown to us for now. Yet that doesn't mean we wont be able to catch the guy whose been causing trouble, now its time for the second part of the plan getting the second clue. I know who you can fight to get the next clue and it wont be easy, for I saw the Hong-Long Night Dancers walking around down the path. The bamboo forest make its a bit shadowy so you have to be extremely careful, they are quick as lighting and will hit you before you find out. If you manage to get something off of them come back to me soon as possible, I want to see if the clues match up to the person were looking for now. Well you better get going now I'll make sure no one follows you around, but you have to be careful about those fighters your facing.| Nodding Anthony went off to find the Night Dancers.
These guys weren't his favorite fighter to deal with at the moment, yet you have to face a swashbuckler once in a while when you enter a new world. Finding them wont be very hard for Anthony, it might be the other way around for him this time. As he took one step he heard a faint sound coming towards him, he jumped out of the way in the nick of time as he almost got hit with a sharpened sword. These guys were fast so Anthony has to be extremely careful about this, yet with his friends this should even the odds for him at the moment. After a good two hours and fifteen minutes he finally hot something on them, it was a strange medallion that fell on the ground that moment. It had weird marking on it that he didn't understand at all, Ming-Hoa might have a better time explaining it to him. Giving him the medallion he looked at it very closely, he knew it had a strange marking on it.
|Hmm these markings look familiar my friend I know it, this medallion you gave me could belong to the person controlling things out here. There isn't anyone else you can fight out here my friend so were in a bit of a dead end, wait what is this piece of paper sticking out of the medallion? Ha I knew that they were hiding something in this little thing, it isn't even a medallion its a secret box hiding a message from the leader. Well I guess we have our man now don't we, Di-Yu-Huo is hiding somewhere at the end of the path so your going to do some walking. He is a fast fighter so you have to be careful with him young one, when you do defeat him bring him back here I need to know what the warlord is planning. With that information we can easy plan for the warlord this time around, this pirate person you've been talking about might be helping him out as well. Well my friend you better get going there is no time to wait, the villagers and I are behind you all the way.| Anthony smiled as he headed off to find Di-Yu-Huo.
Going to the end of the path Anthony found the secret dojo as it looked deserted, at first it seemed like no one was there at the time. Once he went inside that changed really quickly as his men can preparing for a battle, with his brigade he is sure to even the odds but they still have to be careful about him. After a good tow hours they final were able to defeat Di-Yu-Huo, yet Anthony wasn't ready just yet to take him off for the moment. He went back to the village with him tied up heavily as the people came to see, as Di-Yu-Huo looked around it knew that this wasn't a good idea to run away. If he did the villagers will surely do a number on him, trust me he doesn't want that to happen at all. Ming-Hoa came up to him ready to ask him a question, whatever this person said will most likely help them in the next part of his missions for Anthony.
|Di-Yu-Huo its over my friend your little game is up. we know your working for the warlord that's trying to overthrow the emperor here. Now I know he is somewhere hidden from our sites at the moment for now, yet you must have some information on him that my friend Anthony would love to use during his adventures. So I will give you one chance to tell us what you know about the warlord, otherwise Anthony will have no trouble talking to you more dangerously. So you do have a choice but if I were you I would choose my option first, but if you want to fight Anthony again be my guest he'll be a lot of trouble for you.| Di-Yu-Huo looked at them snarling.
Although he didn't want to speak about the warlord he had no choice, so without complaining he spoke to everyone including Anthony.
"The warlord wanted to take over this place ever since he was banished, this land was his to rule but the people never respected him. However this time he will get revenge on all of the people who refused to join him, with the help of a pirate he will be able to claim what was rightfully his in the first place. Oh I haven't told you all how he got banished well let me tell you a story, when the warlord challenged the emperor he wanted the sacred item that he held in his possession. However the emperor refused to give the sacred amulet to anyone who wishes to cause harm, that's when he fought the emperor to get the amulet. However he did lose and with that he banished him from the lands forever, yet he's trying again this time with a pirate who came here a few days ago. We've did much progress out here for the moment, yet with the marines here we will most likely lose a lot of it. Well you've just ended our quest for power we wanted, such a sad faith when a person of good intentions get's into our affairs heavily. I hope that helps you out marine for its all that your getting from me, you'll pay for this later my friend I swear mark my words." Anthony saw the emperor's guards take him away from the village.
Ming-Hoa was happy with what Anthony did today with his help, yet even he knows that his job isn't done just yet.
|Well Anthony I have to hand it to you your tougher than you look, although he's out the way doesn't mean were done out here just yet. I have a feeling that the second in command is controlling things to keep you waiting, however he doesn't know that you have taken out on of his men. If he is close by then I suspect that one of his goons is in the Emerald Outpost doing harm, I have a friend there that might need some help himself. His name is He-Ping his family lives in that area they might need some help, yet I wouldn't send you there just yet its gets dark a bit early here and the enemies love the dark. There is a rest area you can rest for the night, it isn't far from here you can rest up and get ready for the morning. Thanks for all of your help out here my friend, I hope to see you again out here if your not on your missions.| Anthony left to rest up for the night.
Patrick closed the book on another chapter since it was time for him to go to sleep, what will happen to Anthony is yet to be seen...perhaps waiting will be are best solution.
