The shuttle lands softly on Tython's surface, Nym jumping out and landing lightly, despite his armor. He left Vergil on the ship, but he doesn't need him to use the suit. "Shiva, stay with the ship."

She nods as he sets out. "Do you actually know where you're going?"

He shrugs. "Nope. But hey, gotta start somewhere, I guess."

"Good luck," she says, shaking her head and having a seat against the ship. This is going to take a long time.

Nym starts walking away from the shuttle into the overgrown underbrush. Everything he's read about Tython tells him that it's not a particularly cheery place. Which probably means that he'll run into trouble at some point. His motion tracker's set up to not register any sort of lifeform unless it's above a certain size, so it's fortunately not useless. He tries to stay relaxed, however, whistling to himself to calm his nerves. Raptor was right. That actually does work pretty well.

In the distance, Nym spots a mountain range and a Temple between the mountain and a river. To reach there, he needs to pass through a small valley currently in front of him. It looks like a road or cleared path cuts through the dense forests, albeit very small. From the forest a gentle melodi emanates as birds sing from the valley.

Nym follows the road, looking around and taking in the scenery. It really is a peaceful place, on the surface. But in the back of his mind there's a strange feeling. Not necessarily oppressive. It's hard to describe. He does his best to ignore it and makes his way through the valley, the melodies of the birds helping him to relax a bit.

As he enters the valley and the song from the birds become louder and louder until Nym slowly begins to go into a somnolent trance. He can now see the birds on the branches, more and more of them gathering around.

Its also now he notices that skeletal remains through the path he is standing on, from the wildlife and seemingly also humanoids.

The song while louder and louder to the point of being deafening, makes Nym enjoy the melody all the more.

The skeletal remains put him on alert, counteracting the relaxing aura of the melodies around him. Nym reminds himself to keep his wits about him, and the pressure in the back of his mind exerts itself once more. This place feels wrong. Small wonder few people live on Tython nowadays. They'd probably go mad. He powers through the valley despite the melodies of the birds in the trees, forcing himself to ignore them. The skeletal remains are sharp images in his head, and he uses them to remind himself not to fall into a lull.

The Hook hawks become more and more aggressive, with some of them flying closer and closer to him. A few dozen now begins to land in front of him, still singing and encroaches on him further...

Nym draws Stinger with his left hand, the rapid-fire pistol probably a better option against the creatures. He fires a warning shot to see if he can scare them off, but gets ready to move. Now that the threat has made itself clear, their songs do nothing, and his mind is about a clear as its going to get. He's ready for battle.

When he fires his blaster, the ones immediately around him backs off, but soon dozens off them come at him from all sides, those that come close enough begins to peck into hos armor, the rest flying all around making it hard to see. One of them tries to peck one of Nyms eyes.

A swarm. Nym moves quickly, dodging and rolling to keep the beasts from completely overwhelming him. His shots are no longer warnings, and each one is able to down one of the creatures. But Stinger isn't going to work. There are too many. He draws Talon in his right hand, one blade of the Force pike extending and humming its own little tune as its vibration cell activates. With each swing he cuts through swaths of the birds, ducking and weaving to avoid their attacks, prioritizing the evasion of any moves made towards his head. His armor holds as he fights, but that fact probably won't hold for long. Hopefully they'll back off when he's killed enough of them.

Nyms hopes are answered as the birds withdraw, leaving the path out of the valley open. With the song stopped and the birds gone an eerie silence bealls the valley.

Looking down on the ground, Nym can now also see several set of tracks of humanoid footprints moving back and forth from the dense forest and unto the path, all converging and leading towards the temple.

At the same time, Nym gets the distinct impression that he is being watched...

Nym waits a moment as the birds leave, catching his breath. Hopefully they'll stay away. He holsters Stinger and deactivates Talon, moving on. He sees the tracks and looks to where they lead. Hopefully the route they create is safe. With a sigh, he keeps going, following the footprints.

With the birds gone, the silence in the forest is stark, and it more than anything else is what sets Nym on edge. He tries to stay relaxed, but he can't help but feel like there's something following him. He stays sharp, ready to move and fight if more beasts decide to stop stalking and try to go for the kill.

The weather starts taking a turn for the worst as stormy clouds form with the air becoming thick with the smell of ozone in the air, hampering visibility. The path Nym was following suddenly just fades into dense jungle as if the path never existed to begin with. The path behind him also seems to have disappeared. Without having a chance to find his bearings Nym hears the undergrowth rustle as a lizard like predator lunges at him with sharp fangs and claws. In the moment, Nym also senses more movement from the corners of his eyes.

In the ensuing fight a horde of these creatures all lunge at him, those that miss their mark seemingly blend back into the surroundings as if they possessed their own stealth field, scurrying up the trees to lunge back down upon him from his blind angles.

Nym grits his teeth as the path fades and the rain starts falling. His right hand is on Talon, and as the undergrowth rustles Nym darts forward, moving out of the way of whatever creature just tried to attack him. He draws his pike's blade once more, activating it and using it both as a tool to cut through the undergrowth to keep moving forward towards the temple and as a weapon to tear through the swaths of creatures attacking him. These creatures aren't as dangerous as the birds, their attacks weaker, but more numerous. His armor can hold against them for at least a decent amount of time.

As Nym rushes through the underbrush he litterally hits a wall. A cliff wall infact. As soon as Nym tries to circumnavigate it, another pops into existence by tearing through the earth infront of him as if trying to box him in. Nym is once again assaulted by wildlife, this time in the form of acid spiders. As they attack him they threaten to corrode their way through his armour. As these strange occurrences continue the storm above them becomes more fierce, rain pouring down

Nym growls as the obstacles present themselves. What the hell is going on? The spiders attack, launching globs of something towards him. He narrowly avoids one projectile but takes another on his arm. His armor's integrity starts to drop dramatically; acid. Nym rushes forward, carving through the spiders before they can do any more damage. He has to get out of here. He separates Talon and sees what happens if he tries to carve through the stone wall that had shot up out of the ground. If any spiders show up, he prioritizes eliminating them, as they are by far the most dangerous creatures he's encountered.

Suddenly lightning starts to strike the area, in a strange way its seems to creeps along the ground kindling Nyms feet just as the stone walls breaks.

As Nym is almost thrown though the stone wall as it breaks, he finds himself in a clearing, still some way from the temple. In the clearing is a small camp, with a tent and a lit fire. An old man sits in front of the fire meditating. The storm seems to pass.

Nym stands still for a moment, both blades still out, ready for a fight. The wildlife seems to have receded, for some reason. He looks around, turning to see if there's anything else waiting to surprise him, before addressing the old man. He slowly re-couples Talon and hooks it to his belt, but doesn't drop his guard, keeping his right foot back in a cautious guard; everything else on this planet has been trying to kill him. "Who're you?"

Description

The Sleight of Hand approaches Tython, its stealth systems fully engaged. Nym paces back and forth on the bridge. "You're sure we won't draw any attention, Raptor?"

The pilot scoffs. "That route I took to get here is obscure as it gets. Used to run it when I was freelance and feeling real lucky. You felt the strain on our dampeners? That wasn't for show. If you don't know exactly what you're doing, you'll get torn apart. Fortunately, I knew exactly what I was doing."

"Actually," Vergil chimes in, "I had to make some minor adjustments to-"

"Hush, Vergil," Raptor snaps jokingly, shrugging. "Point is, we're here incognito. Not like anyone ever visits Tython anymore anyways. Not sure why you wanted to come here in the first place."

Nym looks at the holoscreen projecting the planet, narrowing his eyes. "Long story. Shiva and I are going down there. You're sure the shuttle won't make too much noise?"

Raptor nods, looking up. "Elize managed to come up with a good way to mask emissions. You ought to get her designing starships. She's really good at that."

"I do my best," her voice replies.

Nym shakes his head, a small smile on his face. "Alright." He turns to Shiva. "Let's go. Everyone else, stay sharp, and warn us if there's any trouble."

"You got it," Raptor replies, sitting back.

OOC: Just me and... whomever Headhunter tells me will be participating.
