Outside Frost Cavern [Mountain Path] | Dawn | (21)

A courteous nod was Rae’s silent response to the dark hound. The poor dear’s situation was more akin to hell on earth than she’d wish on almost anyone.
Even though her ears heard the conversation, her musings were louder in her mind than the outside conversations.

"We can't just hide and get a check. Someone's bound to pull a stick out of their arse and cast it to the wind. These are undead, fighting them will be tough. Dark Types to..we should be good against them techniques wise.. Maka. How many are in your pack?"

Luckily piecing together what she missed was rather easy and like everything she showed attention in, she was immersed in thought. She hummed, turning Arkturus’ words over again and again in her mind as her inner strategist took over.
"There was about thirty in the pack, but half of them never came back from the cavern and I've been by there so many times. The sole Mightyena survivor responded. "Still the one I call an evil spirit is an outsider that came into my pack and cursed my pack into what they are. I remember him having evil red eyes unlike the young one there." The material at Rae’s midriff pulled tightly, clutched in her cold fingers. Not yet had she imagined some of the Mightyena could be youngsters. I can’t put babies down if it comes to that…

"I think if we work together we'll be able to win. Besides they block our way off of this mountain." Drake’s confidence… sadly wasn’t contagious. She nodded at the cocky reptile but she wasn’t feeling it.
A deep breath filled her lungs with air - and with that, a bitter cold burn. Odds stacked against them, confidence was one of their only assets. Fake it ‘til you make it? More than one person once said a lack of belief is the best way to fail. Maybe they were onto something. The snow kind of gives Venge and I home court advantage... Although the Mightyena had that too.

"Talk about timing, looks like its either now or never." The Charmeleon pointed out. The sun indeed was just about to break over the horizon, making stealth significantly less viable when it did.

"Will you be able to fight with us?" Kolven meowed to the Mightyena. Rae’s sympathetic eyes fell onto Maka, wishing for a way to save him from the awful deed. Kolven continued, "They were your friends and family. You shouldn't have to watch that, and I'd understand if you can't."

“Venge, Swords Dance.” The girl whispered to her companion, bent over to keep the command secret. Maka didn’t need to hear an order to prepare for slaughtering his family. They were too far gone, just like Starry. This was mercy killing. She wasn’t a murderer.

Seems that the first thought was out of the question but like so Jack was able to adjust to other tactical points. "We can't just hide and get a check. Someone's bound to pull a stick out of their arse and cast it to the wind. These are undead, fighting them will be tough. Dark Types to..we should be good against them techniques wise.. Maka. How many are in your pack?" Jack knew that and of course he was right with Finn being an ass and alerting the undead to their position. Problem is that Finn is such an angry fox for some unknown reason. Other than that maybe Maka can spread some light on how many they'll be facing. As Maka talked to them to tell them how many there are Jack continued to think in his head on possible tactics to dealing with them. Each of them might be different from the other which would make them have different weak spots. One thing did catch his attention. An outsider that was not from Maka's pack has control. Considering that the options was limited in a small sense, they would need to be careful as undead mightyena are more fierce and tricky.

There was Drake though that as mentioned has pride issues, but Jack considered that part which Drake's species was known for. "Drake I think that you might have to settle down a bit on that. I know you want to fight, but we have to do it smart or we could be in big trouble." What the charmeleon said next had put the time of having any surprise to a halt. Well there goes the stealth approach. Looks like they'll have to take a different approach."Will you be able to fight with us?" After that he had said something that felt as if it was an understanding. Jack felt the same way, but it was up to Maka on that decision. Finn did get a little upset from what Ark said, but this wasn't the time to go at him. Jack then heard a whisper coming from Rae, but he didn't pay much attention to what she said. Yet the idea to be ready to fight was always on the command. With a simple spark of electricity, Jack was ready to fight. "Be ready guys, once the sun gets high enough we would be completely exposed and hiding with the snow won't be simple anymore." Finn nodded and pulled the stick out holding the flame close to his chest.

The Braixen had a lot of issues, but he wasn't about to make them suffer and ruin their escape. I maybe an asshole, but I won't be the reason to hate and want those to wish death upon me. He was many things but a backstabber and a killer was something he wasn't. However, he felt that Maka was likely to unable to fight, but even then he didn't know that. If both Maka and Drake gang up on him, then it would be most miserable time of his life. How he would think it was out of his suspicion. A promise though was to be kept and he'll tell everything though getting hit by Jack was still a possibility.

Mountainside | Dawn | 56

"There was about thirty in the pack, but half of them never came back from the cavern and I've been by there so many times. Still the one I call an evil spirit is an outsider that came into my pack and cursed my pack into what they are. I remember him having evil red eyes unlike the young one there." Thirty in this pack? That's a large pack by even his idea of a big pack.. the food and resources they had must of been incredible to support that many adults and young. The well built Luxray didn't flinch or baulk at the idea of fighting so many. With Fifteen down roughly.. that meant that at least half remained and some of them were kids. Some would call him cold if they knew.. but Ark at that point didn't consider them children no more.

Just threats and mercy killings. He counted their numbers.. the trainer would of had to have at most six pokeballs with her, the rest plus himself that were combat capable numbered six.. their odds weren't great. They needed to get creative.. Arkturus took in all that was around them, snow, some wood.. more snow. What does snow turn into when heated? Water! "I got an idea.. two really. One is more ballsy than the other, though I'll let you lot decide which is which. When they come for us, melt the snow around us.. Myself and Jack can dump a great deal of electrical energy into the water which is really conductive. It'll at least fry some of them, stun them.. jar up the body some." He says with the first idea. It wasn't the greatest he could think of but it did show the potential for using the environment to their advantage.

"The second idea is we charge them. Hard. They'd expect us to cower, not charge them with everything we got coming at them. Probably the crazier of the two but it is something. A more act of desperation than anything else." He looked around at them, waiting for their thoughts.

Outside Frost Cavern [Mountain Path] || Dawn
Clover 61 || Kolven 38


Kolven tried to hold the Mightyena's gaze, but looked away when he did not answer. He had known such a question would be harsh, insensitive even though he tried to be gentle, and the lack of reply spoke volumes of Maka's struggle. I'm sorry. All they could do was to make it as painless as possible for the lost. Giving a respectful not the cat turned himself back to his sister. The female was back at the hunk of meat, tearing and shredding it to pieces as she ate vigorously. "Loading up before the big battle?" He mewed in a whisper, and while his voice tried to be humorous the darkness in his gaze was more telling.

Clover did not answer him. For once she could feed, and no one would tell her otherwise. Her whiskers twitched with a sense of jubilation, with such strong glee that the cat could almost say she felt normal for the first time in her recent memories. It was overwhelming, and before she could make sense of the emotions her teeth smashed down on a frozen bone. It was too thick to crack beneath her bite and broke the trance she had fallen under. Eye widening, Clover took a step back and licked her chops as she tried to reset her thoughts. What was going on? Letting her red eye slide to the side she could see Kolven staring at her, his gaze sullen and claws digging into the snow. He was upset.

With a soft, curious mrrrow, Clover inquired this glance, but Kolven was the one not to answer this time. Instead, he just took a step forward, and curled himself between her and the meat. "You'll need to be careful," he whispered right into her ear fur. "Don't be afraid to hide if its too much." Undead usually left other undead alone, but Kolven could not trust the natural cat/dog rivalry. I'll keep you safe, he promised, burying his face in her cold, shaggy fur. I swear to it.

But to do that they had to put down their enemy. Ark's plans both seemed fairly solid but the tom cat did lean toward one rather than the other. "Stunning them all might be better," he agreed to the first idea. "We don't know exactly how many we're dealing with, and charging them might end.. really badly, if our calculations are off." They were already dealing with multiple Mightyena each as it was. Charging into that could easily be suicide. "Plus I have Thunderbolt as well, so I can add some electricity to the pool."

Outside Frost Cavern [Mountain Path] | Dawn | (22)


"Be ready guys, once the sun gets high enough we would be completely exposed and hiding with the snow won't be simple anymore."

The horizon was lit by the cresting sun— until now, that had been a sign of safety, a reason to breathe easier. How many nights had she stared into the morning sky, relief in its light because she had survived to see another day?
Now that comfort was an enemy, exposing them against the snowy terrain as prey for rotters.

Rae’s back straightened up with an absence of the pain usually accompanying her less than ideal sleeping arrangements. The cottage really was a dream despite the thick ill will in the air. All she could remind herself of is the chance of reaching a shelter far better at the base of the mountain, lest this entire plan would begin to feel like a mistake.

"I got an idea.. two really. One is more ballsy than the other, though I'll let you lot decide which is which. When they come for us, melt the snow around us.. Myself and Jack can dump a great deal of electrical energy into the water which is really conductive.  It'll at least fry some of them, stun them.. jar up the body some." Rae hummed at the lion’s plan. The scent of frying rot was almost vivid enough in her mind to smell and until Arkturus spoke again, she was certain this was the riskier of the two plans. "The second idea is we charge them. Hard. They'd expect us to cower, not charge them with everything we got coming at them. Probably the crazier of the two but it is something. A more act of desperation than anything else."

"Stunning them all might be better," Kolven suggested. "We don't know exactly how many we're dealing with, and charging them might end.. really badly, if our calculations are off." The tom’s thoughts mirrored her own, she would definitely agree the latter was an act of desperation and would easily end in casualties if that was their first choice. The vile image of so many broken bodies lay in the snow, a gruesome slushie, turned her stomach. And so began the gears in her mind turning.

Her icy fingers cupped her chin in thought. “I’m also in favor of the first option,” she said. “The electricity essentially would provide a barrier if timed correctly. If we stun them, our sweepers like Venge could reduce their numbers fast if the electric attacks aren’t sufficient enough to kill them.” Her hands slid to her decidedly slanted hips, producing just enough warmth from friction that the chilled digits were something like comfortable against her cotton shirt. “And if that should fail, we give it all we got to fight our way to safety.”

"I got an idea.. two really. One is more ballsy than the other, though I'll let you lot decide which is which. When they come for us, melt the snow around us.. Myself and Jack can dump a great deal of electrical energy into the water which is really conductive. It'll at least fry some of them, stun them.. jar up the body some." Ark's idea had ticked well for Jack since water is a huge conductor of electricity. Likely Finn and Drake would be able to melt the snow to where it can become a trap for them to use their electric attacks on. Vendetta would be able to help out as well with the trap laying. However with Finn and Drake still at odds with each other, it would be hard for them to cooperate with each other. The other idea though was a last resort in case which even Jack would call a high risk one. "The second idea is we charge them. Hard. They'd expect us to cower, not charge them with everything we got coming at them. Probably the crazier of the two but it is something. A more act of desperation than anything else." Finn crossed his arms acting like he didn't care, but in his own way he would go along with it to at least help them survive. Drake was fired up and excited to help make the traps, but Maka was silent. Jack went over and talked with Maka. Finn however was looking around with the sunlight now exposing them. "Looks like we can't use the snow for cover anymore, just bloody perfect, them blokes will be able to see us." The Pikachu looked at him with an angry look that said shut up. Last thing they need is them to come to them before executing the plan.

When Jack looked at Maka though, he seen the mightyena not in fear, but it seemed he had his eyes closed and was saying something incomprehensible to Jack as if it was another language. Guess he should leave him be to let Maka think it over. "Stunning them all might be better," That would reduce the threat significantly if they did that. If Maka does fight though he'd likely go after the leader if Jack had to guess. "We don't know exactly how many we're dealing with, and charging them might end.. really badly, if our calculations are off." That is true, if they mess up just once and it would become a deadly encounter with most of them either infected or dead. So they had to come out of this unscathed and everyone accounted for. “I’m also in favor of the first option,” So far there wasn't any objection other than to option B which was a last resort. “The electricity essentially would provide a barrier if timed correctly. If we stun them, our sweepers like Venge could reduce their numbers fast if the electric attacks aren’t sufficient enough to kill them.” Rae then voiced out the last resort option. “And if that should fail, we give it all we got to fight our way to safety.”

Jack looked around to see where they could set a good place for a trap. He eventually got sight of a good place to set it. "Down there, It might leave us exposed, but if we can get a large pool around us it should be able to take multiple undead mightyena down." As for timing on when they'll have to get into position and for the fire types to get out of range. Ark and Jack can conduct such high amounts of electricity that it should take most of them out depending on the radius of how surrounded with water they're in. "Drake, Finn and Vendetta should be able to make that radius for us." Then seeing what Clover was doing it did remind him that most of them hasn't eaten anything yet. Cooking anything right now was a bad idea as the smell of cooking could give their position away quickly. Jack then went to listen into the distance hearing small cracks of wood being stepped on. It was far enough for them to get the trap done and ready. "Once we get out there we'll have five minutes to make a big enough pool. Since we lost the element of surprise now, we'll have to bait and trap." Finn however wanted to make a competition out of it. The idea though was dumb and it could expose him to being even more reckless. Just before Finn ran out Jack stopped him just as quick. "Fine, I'll stick with your plan." All the more reason to punch him later on. Now for Clover, Jack was thinking of something that Clover can help out with as well as Kolven. "Clover, Kolven. What would you both like to do?" Asking them for what they're best at would be a start.

OoC)) Given on how big the pool of water is from the melted snow will affect the electrical kill zone to the mightyena.
