    Default Decker's Hell [Plot]

    Update (Aug 6, 2009): This thread is now an open thread rather than plot. If you have a character with a reason to be in hell and a way to get there, then you're welcome to turn up.

    ===================================


    ((This plot takes place in one of the nine layers of Hell. If you would like to join, PM me, but you'll need a character who has some connection to Hell or reason for being there.))


    ===================================


    After having half her soul drained by Jaren the Incubus and then being stricken with a Love's Pain spear aimed at Darkcomet, Decker should have been killed. But she can't die. Instead, she was sucked through a portal into one of the planes of Hell. And the valiant Butler jumped in after her.

    This is a place of Evil, a desolate expanse of pits and ravines and the rubble of war. Armies of devils are encamped under the red skies, in readiness for war. A fortress which appears to be made of amber dominates the land. Through the murky translucent walls, shadows can be seen within.

    In a richly furnished room within the fortress, a portal opens and Decker and Butler fall out, landing on what is, close up, a stunningly beautiful rug, soft to the touch as it is hand woven out of hair and fur of many different colors. Only from further away can it be seen that the colors form scenes of horror and torment and war.

    By the time Decker lands, she is in her devil form. And in this form and in this place, she can no longer block the memories of who and what she is.

    She slowly sits up, then looks at Butler, reaching towards him and gently stroking his hair. "Oh, Butler, why did you come?" [/infernal]

    Well valiant is one way you could word it I guess.

    Butler does not understand infernal. Fortunately he's seen Decker's devil form once before or he'd probably be going ballistic asking her where she took Decker to. Being in a rather nice place with hell, the scenery isn't all too shocking yet, either.

    "What happened ma'am? You seemed to be in pain ma'am. Was it Jaren, ma'am?" Butler pulls close, concern etched on his face.

    The feathered cloak, which fluttered down through the portal as well, is sort of absorbed into Decker's devilish wings, making them soft, white, and feathery instead of bat wings.

    Decker realizes she was speaking Infernal, and switches back to Common.

    "No, it wasn't Jaren," Decker says. "I don't know what it was, but there was no taste of demon about it. Something Vile."

    She pulls her hand back from Butler, and though she doesn't resist him drawing closer, she doesn't return the gesture either.

    "You don't belong here, Butler. You're too pure for this place.

    "Pure ma'am?" Butler looks confused. Such concepts as pure and impure are beyond him. He knows nice and not nice. Most everyone he meets he groups under nice automatically. Decker invented a third category, extra nice, just for her.

    "But you're alright now ma'am, right?" This is the question he really wants answered.

    Butler looks around. "What is this place, ma'am? Is this your home ma'am?"

    "I'm still injured, but I'm healing," Decker says. "We're in Hell. This is my heritage."

    Heavy steps can be heard approaching the room, and there is a knock on the door.

    "Hell ma'am?" Looks like a room to Butler.

    Then the door knocks. "I'll get it for you ma'am." He'll go to open the door and, if succesful, give his customary, "Good day sir. How may I help you today sir?" replacing sir with ma'am as necessary. Ah, it's good to be back at work.

    Butler B. Butler. Hell's butler.

    There is an imp at the door, whose voice sounds like the crackling of flames. "Welcome home, Lady Dekaros. General Baalzatar wishes to see you. And he desires you to bring your companion as well." [/infernal]

    Decker looks at Butler "We need to follow him, Butler. My father wants to meet you." If Butler could read the expression on her goat face, he'd probably see that she looks unhappy.

    And presuming Butler comes along, they will follow the imp straight into deadtime.

    Yes, even the Lords of Hell can't banish deadtime oozes.

    "Father ma'am?" Butler looks a little worried. He's been through a situation or two like that before. Of course, not with demons and devils. But he then puts on a smile. Surely her father must be great if Decker's so nice. "I'd love to meet him ma'am."

    Butler follows Decker and the imp straight into deadtime.

    Decker flutters her wings, and the feathers drop off from it, forming into the feathered cloak as they land. Decker picks it up and puts it around Butler's shoulders. "Be careful," she whispers. "This is a dangerous place. I don't know how, but I will get you out of here. I swear."

    Butler frowns, but nods deciding to trust her, letting her put the cloak on him.

    "Your father can't be all that bad ma'am." He'll smile at her reassuringly. Or ignorantly. "I'm looking forward to meeting him ma'am." He's not really sure why they're whispering.

    The imp leads them into a room where the devil Baalzatar sits at a richly carved desk in a chair covered with leather. Demon slaves scurry about the room doing various tasks. One is chained against the wall, flayed and partially disembowelled, probably dead.

    Baalzatar gives Butler a contemptuous look. "Did you bring him here as a consort or a sacrifice, Dekaros?" [/infernal]

    "He doesn't belong here, Father. Send him home, and I'll stay this time." [/infernal]

    "You'll stay? Really?"
    He looks at Decker closely. "You've lost something, haven't you? You always were a careless girl."

    "It doesn't matter. I can lead your armies without it. Let him go."

    "If I thought you could be trusted, I'd consider it," Baalzatar says. Four devils armed with spears approach the pair and attempt to drag Butler away from Decker.

    (entire conversation in Infernal. Poor Butler)

    Butler smiles as they arrive. When a lull in the conversation occurs, Butler will bow and smile at Baalzatar. "A pleasure to meet you sir. I'm Butler B. Butler sir." Then Butler is approached by armed guards. He's very easily dragged away. He looks a little concerned. "Um... is this really necessary sir? I meant no offense sir. Honest sir." This as he's being walked away.

    Butler is dragged down to the dungeon, which the narrator is active in too many threads to describe.

    It's a dungeon. In hell. Probably not nice. And there are lots of demons locked up here.

    Poor Butler.

    There is one demon that may catch Butler's interest- possibly just because it is in the cell next to him, or possibly because it is quite small and rather harmless looking, and thus unlike most of the other demons, wouldn't scare someone out of their wits.

    This demon looks almost like a pixie- it has tiny little translucent wings, vivid magenta hair and eyes, and a humanoid body that appears to have been smoothly sculpted out of clay- no details marring its surface.

    The demon flutters over as close as it can to Butler's cell, peering at him curiously.

    Butler is not really scared of the devils themselves for some odd reason. Now the things said devils can be seen doing or have done and their scary weapons is a different story.

    Butler will bow to the pixie-like demon. "Hello sir. A pleasure to meet you sir. I'd ask if there's anything I could do for you sir, but I'm a little restrained at the moment in that regard sir." Butler uses sir here, but he really doesn't know. He usually goes with sir when he's not sure or it's a robot or something.

    "Yes sir." He can't help it much. It's pretty hardwired. Even when shouting in surprise he adds sir and ma'am.

    Butler will shake his head. "I don't know sir. One minute I was meeting Decker's father sir, and the next I was thrown in here sir. I think he doesn't like the idea of me and her being together sir. I've seen it once or twice before sir, but never to this extent sir."

    Butler looks back. "Oh this sir?" He'll turn back and give the demon a warm smile. "Decker gave it to me sir. It's the cloak she wears a lot sir. She's quite the wonderful swanmay sir."

    Butler has on shorts and a mithril bell collar in addition to the cloak. That's about it.

    The demon gives an exasperated sigh.
    "Short version: Demons and devils don't like each other. They're killing each other off. It is called the Blood War. Baalzatar is a big general for the devil's side, and I'm a demon who got captured, which is why I'm stuck in this cell."
    It sits down next to the wall.
    "Well, not so much stuck, really. I could get out if I wanted to, but once I'm out of the cell, I don't have a way to escape from there. If there were some way to get out of Hell... it might be worth it."

    Butler nods, not really sure why they're fighting, but not really pressing the issue either.

    "Oh don't worry sir. I'm sure they'll let us out sooner or later sir. Decker said so sir." He gives the demon a reassuring smile.

    "They'll let you out maybe. I'm going to be rotting here until I have no more information to provide, at which point they'll execute me."
    The demon glances at Butler.
    "And they might just kill you anyways."
