This entrance corridor leads along the ground floor for a good few hundred Bio until it reaches the central staircase. At the entrance itself, light barely enters before the shadow overpowers it. A series of corridors off to the side all contain either rubble, or the far-off red lamps of Rahi eyes. Kraata slither across the floor in all directions, though never close enough to you to do any damage. The corridor is 'illuminated' by a row of dull purple lightstones down both sides, though none do much to reveal the nature of the hallway around them.

"Wow, I know you said that this place used to be on fire, but this looks like one of Radiak's rampant flames." Said Solek.

"If any of you manage to grab a kraata, toss it my way. Id love to test the rahkshi gun."

Nuara hurries in after the others, but before she reaches them, a kraata slithers over her foot. Kicking it off with a panicked flail, she curses with surprising vulgarity before smiling meekly at Imatron.

"It got away." she apologises, lighting a sphere of plasma upon the tip of her haliberd to give a little extra light.

"You know, if you want, I can lighten up the density of the shadows around here to make it brighter." said Solek.

"That kind of elemental expendature'll draw unwanted attention. I don't want to run into anything, right?"
She shudders as another gust of air blows down a side tunnel.
"Besides, I don't want to be able to see what's down those passageways."

"If you insist." Solek continues walking down the seemingly long corridor.

Still facing the entrance, Nuara backs after the others, constantly and cautiously checking every corner as she passes.

"Wish Zahnok was here..." she mutters under her breath. "Or my cowardly brother." she adds, joking to herself.

"Or you could just blow out every living organic life form before entering, Makuta don't count, what with being Antidermis and all that." said Solek.

"'Blow out,' Solek? Not sure what you mean." Nuara answers without looking back.

"I'm no Toa of Air - not that stupid and reckless. At least, I hope I'm not." she adds, almost tripping over a chunk of melted metal as she walks backwards over it.

"I suppose, in retrospect, our demolition attempts could have been more thoughrough. We wouldn't have any reason to come back."

"If Solek is as powerful as he says, and assuming the local phsyics arent supressing his powers, maybe he could do you the favor of vapourizing the place?" Imatron said, more or less joking. His eyes begin to shift as he searches a memory, and taking a more serious tone; "Though I have seen one legitimate toa of nuclear energy before, perhaps Solek was destined to be another such toa before the leeches..."

off topic: I have to make a Toa of Nukes now.

"Torix is the only thing standing between this place and a Nova Blast." Nuara admits. "She says the 'scientific advancements' made by Mutran may work to our benefit. I don't care, I want nothing more than to see what's left burn with the rest."

"What?" she temporarily turns, smiling. "I don't have much of a capacity for elemental charge. My Nova'd be only twenty Kio or so in diameter."

"Eh, well, at least you won't kill a whole fourth of a planet... like this guy," said Valeia, pointing at Solek, "But I still don't recomend encouraging him to try."

"Again with the world-destroying powers? I thought someone like that would be a little more careful, more responsible. Knowing my abilities, though, going Nova would probably get me fourth-degree burns all-over... Gotta say, If you're going to steal someone away from society and forcibly change their element, at least do it right. I mean, whoever heard of a Toa of ice getting frostbite, or a Toa of plantlife with pollen allergies?"

"He is. He runs out of elemental power just as fast as I do, but I think his armour's insulated or his Kiril deals with it. I suppose I could have created better armour, but I was a little distracted during my transformation. I can handle higher temperatures than most, but plasma's too much."

"Tell me when to stop. Don't wanna fall into the stairwell."

"Mata-!"
The end of Nuara's statement is cut off by the hiss of plasma, melting not only through the fallen chunk of roof, but the floor underneath it, also.

Clamping a hand over her heartlight, she falls against the wall beside her, breathing irregularly. After a few moments, she struggles for words.

"That- ...I..." still hyperventilating, she pushes herself back up onto her feet, gripping the halberd's handle tighter than before.

"Two years ago, Solek. I thought the dust - okay, the roof - would have settled."

"But I suppose you're used to this kind of thing, aren't you?" she suddenly snaps "I bet the Great Solek eats places like these for breakfast! Let me tell you something: I'm never going to get used to this. These things don't make me stronger, 'cause each time I leave with more scars, less living friends and another recurring nightmare!"


I apologise for the "Great Solek" bit, but I'm trying to stay in character. She's terrified, so she's lashing out like a cornered animal. I don't mean it, and nor does she.

*Konk* Imatron knocks once on Nuara's head from behind with the end of his staff, not enough to do any harm, just enough to almost hurt.

"Get ahold of yourself before I have you sedated, an angry toa is hardly an effective one."

Nuara stands stunned for a few seconds, before sagging her shoulder and hanging her head.

"Sorry, Toa. I-" she struggles for an appropriate apology. "It won't happen again."

"Dont worry, we can tell your especialy stressed to be here, you just have to keep yourself from slipping too far into your bad memories. You cant change what happened before but you can be ready to keep it from happening again. If you do everything you can now then youl have no regrets later."

Imatron begins searching for the closest pathway in the rubble of the room.

"Hm, I see a way back up, or should we dig a way through the rubble to see if theres a lower level we can access?"

"I'm not leaving empty-handed." Nuara confirms. "There's a central staircase at the end of this hall, and from what I understand, Torix's camp is on the lowest landing."

"Hang on..." she pokes her head through the doorway, looking immediately towards a melted hole in the far wall. "Yeah, this is how Takal and I broke in last time, which means..." she pulls back, directing the glare from her haliberd down the corridor "...It's not far to the stairs."

Valeia was soon lost, but heard Nuara talking about stairs and finding them, and walks in her direction, but trips halfway there. "I think I found them!" she yells.

Mind where you're standing - the staircase'll get worse. One of the wall supports collapsed when I was on my way out last time - took out a good chunk of the stairwell in its way down."

"And don't get distracted and wander off at the landings. I haven't been in even a quarter of this place before. I don't know what else is in here."
