    The Great Quest For Aden's Body

    Post  Susan Evensong on Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:10 pm

    Your party has been gathered in a makeshift labratory in the woods, certainly much smaller than the one Susan usually resides in. However, the place is stuffed to the brim with various boxes covered with gleaming buttons and emitting a strange buzzing sound. Every box seems to be hooked into what appears to be a small metallic platform which is producing a strange hum as well.


    Susan is leaning over one such box whispering to it almost affectionately before noticing the group and looking up with a sheepish grin.

    "About time you all showed up, who exactly is joining us on this particular excursion?"

    Aden grins at Susan before looking around and starts poking a random machine.

    With an annoyed growl Susan walks over and grabs Aden's wrist.

    "If you enjoy having that hand attached to your body, I highly suggest you don't do that."

    He stares at Susan in confusion before shrugging and step back.

    "Whatever you say, Cupcake."

    "The number of people who almost blow themselves up with my equipment is nearly endless." Susan mutters irritably under her breath before shaking her head and grinning at Aden.


    "Well, I think I've tracked down your body. Or... the version of you that still has a body, luckily, I had a hair sample...." Susan begins to launch into a rather long winded explanation before catching herself.

    "Now, do you think you're ready to go get it, or have you started to enjoy your newfound humanity?"

    Aden takes a giant steps away from the machine and eyes them warily. Upon hearing Susan talk about a hair sample he gives her a quizzical look and lightly touches his hair, wondering when she got one. Pats Val as goes back to watching Susan.

    "I am ready now! I want my old body back!"

    "We were trapped on a ship together for two months, Aden, one where we shared a room no less. Of course I had the opportunity to collect samples."


    With an amused smirk Susan steps closer and pets Val as he naps on top of Aden.

    "Very well, we will need to stand on top of that metallic platform...." Pausing she pulls two odd metallic necklaces covered with strange inscriptions, at the center of each is a button. One necklace possessing a red button and the other possessing a green button.

    "You have to wear the red one. Upon finding your body we'll need to somehow get him into the green one. Be warned, if we fail to find your body the process may... backfire... and I cannot guarantee how you will end up."

    Aden stares off into space for a bit before he recalls those two months and nods. He takes the necklace and half heartedly listens to the explanation while flipping the necklace around but when he hears the consequences he nearly drops it.

    "What kind of consequences can I be dealing with?"

    "Well you won't die... most likely... but the thing is designed to get you a new body.... and a new body you will get with or without finding your actual body.... I just don't know what type. I cannot promise that it will be as... appealing as your current form."

    "That will be amusing if he turns into an orc. I'd like to see how he seduces people in that form." Val chuckled and slipped down onto Aden's shoulder.

    The thought of Aden being an orc flashed through his mind and he shuttered.

    "I don't want that," he whispers quietly to himself.

    She shoots Val a mildly annoyed look, his comment while potentially accurate certainly wasn't helpful.

    "We'll do our best to avoid that eventuality. However, it is not too late to change your mind if you would like. In either case I will be here to help you
    ."

    "No, I want my old body back. I would like my longer lifespan back, please." He looks down at the necklace with a bit of worry. "No pain, no gain right? Or something like that."

    "Nothing truly worth having can be obtained without risk." Susan attempts to smile comfortingly before standing on the platform and motioning Aden forward.

    "Well?"

    Sighing, Aden stands where Susan wants him.

    "Lets get this over with."

    "It isn't as if I'm looking forward to this journey either." Susan frowns slightly as she pulls out of her remote and is about to press the button when she suddenly pauses.

    "Oh damn, I forgot I invited some others along to help us out. We really should get started but just in case they come along later.... ASTRIX!"

    Hearing her shout a metallic monkey wearing a labcoat shuffles into the room.

    "Astrix dear, let the others through if they happen to wander in, will you?"

    The robot salutes smartly before scurrying off into the next room again.

    "Very well, let us be off!" With a broad grin Susan finally presses the button and the two (plus a fox) vanish.


    Your skin tingles as you vanish, almost burning as dizzying colors swirl around you before you land unceremoniously in a heap in a large wooded area. What appears to be a massive temple is the only building for miles.


    "Oh fuck me..." Susan mutters under her breath upon seeing their location.

    "Oof!" Escapes Aden as Susan lands on him. Rubbing his back he gives Susan a small glare as he looks around the area.

    "My other self better not be a religious freak."

    "Sorry." Turning red and scrambling off of him she stands and examines the temple.

    "I suppose there is only one way to find out..." She murmurs before looking back at him.

    "By the way, the gods aren't likely to be very... pleased with us for entering this relm this way. Cameron used religious means so it probably didn't cause as much of a stir but science tends to... break rules. So try not to unduly piss of the god of this temple, eh?"

    Aden looks up at the temple and sighs. He just knows it's going to be one giant hassle. He turns to Susan and grins.

    "I shall try but make absolutely no promises. Pleasing people especially gods isn't exactly my forte."

    With a sigh Susan shrugs.

    "You are nothing but trouble, however, it is your body on the line, so do as you wish. Just bear in mind there may be consequences. Now how would you like to get in, Sweet Cheeks?"

    "I will be on my best behavior!" Aden grins at Susan before shuttering at the thought of becoming an orc.

    He goes up to the base of the temple and looks it over. "Do you think this place is booby trapped?"

    Aden isn't really sure if there are any traps or not, but he does see a set of doors guarded by a somewhat nervous looking pair of guards.
