You are Purps. Amnesiac Starborn, blessed of Minerva, The Purple Firefly, Saviour of Grinnsmon and really fucking tired of Rono Pass.You were doing your job pretty damn fine until some hunchbacked fuck decided that his "MAAAAASSSSSTEEEEERRRRRR" needed to be consigned to the family crypts. Now your flesh has been torn apart and you've been saved by some young guy who just radiates this cold fury Honamurei says you too have.The beasts have yet again been cowed as he stands with both hands ready to click his fingers. A wide semicircle of wolfmen backing off slightly as the aplsha's heckles rise. Uncertainty has bought you time.Your arms are a mess, your left arm wont move; something important must have been torn from the chunk of shoulder that was bitten free.

>>781766>>781763>>781762Your muscles scream as you get your right arm to bend. You put your hand flat off the ground and push. Your stomach sounds like the tearing of a dog eating meat, but you manage to get your legs under you. The corners of your vision darkneing as you satgger forward and sway. Walking towards the man in blue coat, you draw your saw. "Thanks. But I'm not the kind of woman who'll let someone else fight for her."You inhale and spit a thick globule of dakr blood into the rock floor as the man looks over to you with startling blue eyes, "I know Purps." Ok, dude knows your name. "There's a set of seals in my right pocket. Slap one on your saw and these things won't be getting up." He continues seriously.You reach into his pocket and find a bunch of small square plates.

>>781796>> Apply seals
>>781833>>781800>>781799You wedge the saw between your legs and with one working arm you rub the stone against the flat of your buzzsaw. You feel a little buzz in the air and for a brief moment your saw seems to glow white.A series of clicks ring out and explosions deafen you. The man jumps back and you force your barely funcitoning legs to follow his movements, you throw out your saw and it buries itself into an oncoming Wolfman where you rev it until he burns away into white mist."Well, looks like time for some revenge."

The Wolfmen charge at a barked command from their alphas, and your saw immediatly claims three heads as you let it loose in a wide arc.The purple flame surrounding you seems to cauterize the worst of your wounds, though your left arm is still hanging immobile, you get a foot up to a chraging wolfman. Rolling back to let his momentum throw him through the sotne altar, a mix of dust, stone fragments and wolf blood floting through the air as you meet your next foe with a flurry of blades.Their numbers are working against them, explosive magic knocking them back, down or to pieces as they bunch up. preventing their overwhelming numbers form coming into play against you, the smell of blood driving them stupid.An alpha tears it's own packmates apart to get at you. you can detonate or flame breath at any time > [FRUSTRATION] CQC (Close Quarters Claw)> [GRATITUDE] Time to see what metal's around> [GLEE] Orbital Strike> Write-In

We've had tastes of boss fight, horde fight and small crowd fighting now so I think it's time to ask how you've enjoyed fighting.
Ok since everyone is shy tonight I'll assume combat is perfect and no changes need to made in anything. Writing.

You get to witness the process of a claw being deconstructed by a spinning metal vortex close up and it is hauntingly beautiful. You send the saw spinning into the crowd and resist the urge to giggle as abunch of limbs are slashed off into white mists. A bunch of Wolfmen are launched into the air in pieces by the explosion and you climb up the alpha facing you's arm. You run up and launch it, as your muscles burn. You inhale as you ascend, countless red bloodthirsty eyes tracking your flight. You feel the fire flowing down your throat, invigorating your tired and wounded body. Your lungs expand to take in the concentrated boiling death that is Minerva's Lantern.As some more bold wolfmen jump and others begin to move to where you should land you exhale and in a blistering puprple torrent of divine flame -> Roll 1d20+2 18+ Instakill

Your wounds burst open in the air and only a few wolfmen go down.You fall unconcious in mid-air, thankfully. Vision is a memory, as you don't even hear your ally screaming or feel yourself be mauled and consumed.

>>782411>>782374>>782310>>782306>>782266"Fuck" Yes Quite. The Dealer is no longe royu and another person stitched together. Now he is in fact a small blonde child with teeth the size of daggers and eyes as balck as a pit. The green irises glowing out of them seem to stare right into your soul, which being only a soulright now they probably do. He sneers dismissivley as he goes back to his business with some kind of serpent with the head of bird and five tails. You cant help but wish he would talk to you. But you use this time to look around.The leather chair in which you sit is comfortable yet simple in it's uniform blackness. The beautiful stained wood reflects your red eyes back at you. But you swear the grain of the planks make up faces in all states of distress, the language The Dealer is speaking to the serpent in is incompihensible to you.The walls seem to be some kind of solid liquid and through the ceiling you see Minerva and Ovtayvius, as well as the moon which you now know to be named Darna. They're so far away, orbiting a small blue ball. You look down at your body and find you're still in the state you died. Oh. That would explain why... yeah not even thinking about the right side of your head right now.> Walk Around> Speak to The Dealer> Try to contact Minerva> Write-In

We're resuming tomorrow at some point. I'm beat and it seems kinda quiet on the board tonight. A Discord member just started up a RWBY questif y'all looking for somewhere else to go.You don't have to go home, but you can[t] stay here!Remember:

>>783038>>782956>>782941>>782712>>782700>>782683"No deal." You say. Which causes the snake demon to kind of bristle and hiss. You don't think it'd attack you, plus the weird plumage that begins sticking out the gaps in the scales has you intrigued, so you begin scrathing behind the thickest parts like he's some kind of housepet.He is not in fact a housepet, so when he snaps at your face you are very much releieved to see a hand made of marble crush the demon's throat in a brutal grip. Some spittle hits your face as the serpent protests in a series of gasping chokes. She is a guest. Whilst you are merely a petitioner. Attacking any of my guests again will carry a fate more grisly than your archaeon could dream up.The serpent demon strikes The Dealer above the cheek with it's tail, but the marble hand's grip doesn't loosen even as the skin around the impact cracks and shatters. Falling to ground in marble snowfall.Instead he grins a bloodthirsty smile and the serpent is enveloped in pink energy before disapearing in smoke.

But in the end your curiosity is overwhelming; "So who is the guy in the blue coat?"His chuckle is low, long and protracted but it rises in volume even as your vision starts to return. Oh dear. How did you not recognise Luc? You are Luc Maddison-Remy. Attendant and Son to Captain Matthieu Remy and you are fucking furious. Your fingers hurt from clicking so much and your throat hurts from all the swearing, cursing and screaming. You are now a teenager, which is great and all but you just watched your best friend, crush and teacher die to the jaws and claws of these abominations. Tears are pouring down your cheeks as you are surrounding by blood and meat knitting itself back together.

Shes immortal, the best we can do for purps is get rid of everyone. Body aside, what better way to prove yourself than annihilating a horde of were wolves.
>>785582On my way off but I'll add this. Luc and Honamurei just know she came back from the dead once. Not even Purps knows she's properly unkillable yet.

>>788779To be taken seriously
You take your time, anticipating the rush of both your foes and ally. Unsurprisingly Honamurei dashes in and claims three heads with her sword as you're lining up. The fourth beast hesitates and for that you line up and explode it's skull out form behind it's eyes with a headhot from beind.The fifth wolfman runs, but finds itself cut off by Hona and staring down the barrel of her gun as it lights up.You reload and begin putting down the Wolfmen Honamurei decapitated with body shots, wandering between the pews.You run your hand through your non shaggy hair and try to swallow your grief. Purps' body is not in a good state, you sink into what's left of the closest pew. Ignoring the chunks of Wolfman meat sharing the pew with you."Are you okay Luc!

>>789384>>789065>>789053>>789044"She'll be okay right? She came back once, she can do it again!" You say as you look round at Hona practically begging. She just looks at you as you sit there, tears in your eyes. Her face is retsrained grief. "She'll be okay? Tell me, tell me she'll be okay.""Shhhhhh Shhhhhhhh" Hona says as she takes your head in her arms, pulling you close. You sob into her chest and punch the pew. Trying to convince yourself she'll be okay whilst Hona refuses to say anything beyond shushing gestures.
