Selva Oscura

Selva Oscura is the forest that directly borders Last Bastion and its gigantic defensive wall to the northeast. As its name would suggest, the forest is immensely dense, dark, and rumored to be haunted by the residents of Last Bastion. The forest is legendary for its immensely tall trees, towering nearly 100 meters into the air, with massive brush that blocks out nearly all sunlight into the forest. This gives the forest the impression of nearly eternal darkness, no matter the season or time of day. As a result, all who wander the forest have drastically reduced sightlines, being unable to see outside of short-range. Mythical beasts are said to reside within Selva Oscura, beasts that feed off the residents of Last Bastion should they be foolish enough to venture into its darkness.

As Nana and Raven arrive in the heavily forested landmark, Nana felt her sight become reduced as an unnatural darkness seemed to take over the surrounding area. As the sight of everything was reduced, Nana channeled chakra into her gauntlets ready for a fight should anything leap out at her. As they pinged the location back to her of Raven, she felt uneasy venturing into this forest. while she was a veteran and capable warrior, as well as her faith in Raven, this situation unnerved her.

Do you feel that?

Raven followed Nana into the forest, which, as if turning off a light switch, went dark neigh instantly. Raven had no issue seeing Nana, although the women didnt have her eyes, Raven was unsure if the Women would even know her where abouts, so Raven made a point of staying close. Wandering through the tree line, it was eerily quiet as well, like a single leaf hitting the canopy floor could be heard throughout the entire forest. Slightly unnerved, Nana spoke out, about feeling something. Not entirely sure what the women was worried about, Raven spoke

You mean the feeling of impending doom and dread? Or are you just scared of the dark?

Theres an unnatural darkness here. Something cloaks this forest in darkness to the naked eye.


Nana stepped on a twig and it broke, sounding like a thicker branch that echoed through the forest. It was quiet, as Raven spoke out and Nana replied to her, a shiver stretching down Nana's spine as if a foreboding warning.

I dont think we are alone... Theres stories in old texts about this part of Tobusekai, about monstrous and strange creatures that hide and prey on travelers through their forest. An interesting story, but I wonder if there is any truth to them.

Nana's hand brushed over trees as she wandered through them and even though this darkness was unnatural and it was a dangerous place, Nana couldn't help but enjoy to peace and quiet that the forest brought out, the solitary inner peace of being at one with oneself. Closing her eyes, Nana focused on her breathing, allowing her other senses to take over as she wandered deeper into the forest, taking in each sound, the smells of the freshly grown leaves and composing dead falled leaves, the cycle of nature at work.

Raven was mostly brushing the women off, she was worrying about nothing in reality. Raven would be able to see anything of danger coming from halfway across the forest, which was why when Nana spoke, Raven peaked slightly. Had she really not noticed? The way she spoke, it was dawning on Raven that Nana hadn't noticed the creature slithering through the treeline, stalking the duo. Slightly amused, Raven spoke.

Thats because we arn't alone Haha. You really havnt noticed that huge worm looking thing thats been stalking us for the past hundred meters? It's kinda creepy, looks like some kind of worm with legs and wings. Doesn't seem all that threatening though, i could kill it if you want?

Raven was mostly shrugging off its presence, she knew how strong she was and some lowly failed science experiment wasnt going to make her shudder

This post marks the start of my mission using the following story board elements:

-Fight someone(thing) stronger than you

Summary:
After exploring the forest a bit, Nana and Raven are assaulted by a local creature, which proves to be a powerful foe.




Nana knew there was a sense of foreboding for a reason. There was a reason that not many creatures were around. There was a reason as to why people feared to come into this forest. Raven spoke confirming the suspicions that Nana had point out the creature stalking them. If it was stalking them, then it had some level of intelligence or adept at hunting, and wasnt just a mindless beast defending it territory.

Nana stopped and flicking her her toward Raven to move forward, she ushered Raven past her. As Raven moved forward, once she was out of the way, Nana centered herself for a moment, and with a simple twist and a powerful strike, Nana pounded her fist into the ground with a powerful controled shockwave that decimated the trees behind them, creating a clearing as the Worm Creature was revealed.

Well lets see why people fear coming to this forest. Ill let you take the lead, and jump in when I can see an opening.

(1000m Panchi) 100m Punch
Type: Offensive
Rank: S-Rank
Range: Short
Chakra: N/A
Damage: 80
Description:
This technique is both terribly simple and terribly dangerous. The user concentrates their chakra into their fist and simply lands a devastating full punch blow on the target, sending him flying to at least 1000 metres away from where the user is (if nothing is in between). In most cases, if successful the technique is fatal. In addition the technique can also be used to defend against solid ninjutsu attacks such as Earth. If the user punches the ground, the chakra released from the huge strength the technique packs will produces a massive shockwave that shatters and crushes the earth up to mid range, leaving behind an enormous crater. The technique is so powerful it can be used against boss summons or gigantic enemies with no noticeable result change.

Note: Can only be used by Sakura or Tsunade bios.

The battle had ended in the Duo's favor, and with the Khezu dead, Raven allowed herself to heal the wounds she had sustained. Few broken ribs, lots of cuts, but overall, still alive. Turning to Nana, Raven spoke.

Well, that was fun, wasnt it? What now? We could spend our time claiming more landmarks, getting into tedious battles, or, we could cover more ground if we split up, meet back at the hideout i built in the last landmark in a few days?
