Malcom set the two of them down on the ground before taking in handfuls of sand as he caught himself before standing on his feet and shaking off the dizziness.

"F*** that bites, at least we didn't land in the middle of the ocean", he commented as he rubbed his forehead.

Well this was an interesting three-way attempt at opening a single door, although perhaps justified given the looming threat of deadly gas. First Trizzick tried to hold the door open for the other two, only to have Blackburn attempt to kick the door open, and then finally Malcom headbutting the door.

Trizzick had already dodged out of the way when Blackburn kicked the door, quickly following behind Malcom when he cracked the door open with his skull.

"How chaotic," the Moth mumbled, looking around. "Well, either we're outside and free or this is an illusion. I sincerely doubt our captors would let us go just because we selected the correct door once."

He looked back at the exit they had just come from, seeing if they were kept inside a building, or if this door seemingly connected to no other structure.

Blackburn squirmed from Malcom’s grasp and straightened his coat. “T’is a fine predicament we find ourselves. Stranded ‘pon strange waters, nary a map nor ration a’twixed us. I’ve me flintlocks and shot t’spare, but if me powder be damp, then me brace serves no purpose. ‘Least ‘til the powder dries.” He turned away from the beach-head, looking inland. “S’pose cunning and speed’ll serve us for vittles. Though I’ve not a light on my person.”

Travis dodged one of the hyenas and quickly brought his blade down on it, taking it's head off. Should have known, he thought to himself. Whenever someone shows up injured like this, there's usually a reason, and most of the time, the attacker would still be in the area.

*** Team 1 ***

After dispatching the hyena Travis' saw a new popup.
Hyena Defeated
LEVEL UP
To open your status menu to distribute your unspent stat and skill points think 'status'.
As soon as he saw this he suddenly got a feeling of power welling up inside of him. Kelsey got the same notification and feeling. Meanwhile Spade was struggling with the other hyena. As the hyena kept pressing down on her khopesh. She threw a punch directly at the hyena's left eye. The hyena yelped and leapt off of her, taking the initiative she jumped up and swung down at the hyena as hard as she could, lodging the khopesh deep into the hyena's side killing it within seconds. She turned to the others and grinned before collapsing in exhaustion.

Trizzick would see... absolutely nothing. The door along with the room were gone as if nothing was ever there in the first place. He would notice something else though, walking along the beach were 3 massive golden colored crabs, easily as tall as a person.

"What the hell is this s***...?" Travis asked no one in particular. He thought status and waited to see what happened.

"It appears we're in much more danger than I first anticipated," Trizzick said, staring at where the door once was. "We may be the playthings of some greater unknown." The Moth then pointed at the golden crabs with his staff, "Given that our captors have already tried to kill us, I would assume that the crabs over there are not friendly. I recommend we keep our distance." He nodded towards Blackburn, "Given that my powers were tampered with, I suspect that your guns were too."

Blackburn sneered at the large gilded crustaceans. Without a word, he drew the first of his pistol pairs, took aim and pulled the triggers. He was rewarded only with a damp ‘plak’, as hammers met the wet powder. With a dissatisfied grunt, the pirate holstered the pistols, only to draw the next pair. Again, he was awarded an ignominious slap of useless gunpowder. Stubborn as he was, Blackburn drew upon his last pair of pistols, trying them again. When no thunderous clash met his efforts, the raccoon swore loudly.
“Me blade was confiscated, as it were, by me treacherous crew. Patience would see me powder dried, but t’would seem these glimmering beasts seek to make a meal of us.” Blackburn gestured at the crabs, looking a little worried at their stature. “I wager the two of ye don’t have a spare blade a’tween ye?”

"who needs blades when your hands crush stone", Malcom said before rushing towards them, bombarding one of the crabs with two heavy kicks before grabbing it by one of it's claws and slinging it into the second crab.

*** Team 1 ***
Upon Kelsey thinking the phrase a message would appear in her view
Unable to fulfill request.
Reasons:
Insufficient power
Goals not met

Travis would see: See attachment




*** Team 2 ***

Despite Malcolm's attempts to kill the crabs they were unharmed as a field of blue energy covered their bodies, completely negating all harm. One of the crabs calmly walked up to Malcolm and in its claws was a small wooden box, the crab held the box up to Malcolm as if it wanted him to take it. The other crabs also calmly walked up to Trizzick and Blackburn holding out small boxes of their own.

"I cannot believe that your first instinct upon seeing another creature is to choose violence," Trizzick said, irritated. "I said I assumed they were dangerous, and to keep our distance. Not to attack them unprovoked." He sighed, "I suppose knowing that these creatures are invulnerable is valuable information, although alarming in of itself. We may as well take the boxes, I don't think 'no' is an answer here with their power and the lack of ours."

The Moth took the box, then started examining it for anything possibly dangerous. Then, once satisfied that the box wasn't rigged with some kind of trap, slowly opened it whilst keeping it away from his face at arm's length, unless he had indeed spotted something suspicious.

"Well... this is awkward...", Malcom said as he accepted the box. "Oh and excuse us two S***kickers for not being P****** after getting gassed like bugs... No offense intended", Malcom said leering over at Trizzick as Malcom took the lid off his box.

"Oh and Blackburn, catch", he added as he tossed the pistol he handed him earlier back.

Blackburn, with box in paws, could only watch as the pistol buried itself slightly into the soft sand. “Well, I suppose the powder’s ruined now.” He used a boot to dig the gun out, but returned his attention to the box. It seemed of a simple make, with nary a trap set within. Shrugging, the pirate opened the box, throwing the lid wide. “I must apologize for the hostilities. Yon beasts bear great resemblance to the aurucrabs of the Lesser Cantuk Islands. Lost many a body to them back in me rum-running days.”
