  1. Northern Delights: Help Wanted.

    It had been a long month since the Blood Moon had passed. Unnuk was thankful the Yura had made it through the ordeal safely, her shop however...that was another story. She had been forced to close her store down for most of the past month due to damages to the merchandise, and the storefront itself. Today however, she was about to complete her final piece of work. She hung the "Help Wanted" sign on the door and then flipped the closed sign to Open. She unlocked the door and made her way behind the tea counter, waiting for her customers to begin showing up.
  2. Northern Delights: Help Wanted.

    "Welcome to Northern Delights!" Unnuk called as she stood up from behind the book counter. Yura lay in his usual spot, and even as she stood and spoke her right hand never stopped petting between his ears. As the wind from outside carried the scent of the newcomer over to them however the fox's ears perked up and he looked at his owner. She in turn looked back at him and shrugged before saying out loud: "It's not a big deal Yura." "My name is Unnuk, I am the proprietor of this store. Are you looking for books? Perhaps you're here to try one of our exotic blends of Labrador tea? I am the only one in the area that can make it after all." She said with a friendly wink and a smile as she stepped out from behind the counter. Adorned in a simple white blouse, a pair of dress slacks, and an asymmetric white fur sash around her waist, that was small on the left side but swooped down to her right knee before returning to her left behind her, she cut a rather striking pose and figure. (Sorry, I've been gone from home a lot. Works been having us do 10 to 12 hour days and weekends have just been one event right after the other.)

    Sorry my post is a little short, but not much to type until we get rolling

    Wonderful. Just one more question before I post. For the sake of time line how long after the blood moon event would you like this to take place? I was thinking maybe a month after, but if that is to long for your character's timeline let me know and I can adjust it to be sooner.

    Wonderful. If you want me to I can start up the thread if you would like.

    (OOC: Once you're done with the blood moon, feel free to come by Unnuk's shop. She could always use some help, and if you can convince her she can even provide some housing. That fact that you are both a type of shifter might help you get along. )
  7. BLOOD MOON - Empire State Building

    Unnuk had finally managed to recharge a good portion of her power from what food was left in the service cart. She made her way to the door and saw the girl she had seen from the mouse along with another man. Both looked like very good people to have down here with the civilians. "Hey! Can you guys hear me?" She called out. "If you can take the service elevator down one floor. It'll put you in here with us. The wolves shouldn't be a problem as long as the door closes before the catch up to you! If you don't wanna risk the ride I suggest climbing down." She called out as loudly as she dared. She didn't want to draw to much attention to the area. The gunshots were already bad enough.

  11. BLOOD MOON - Empire State Building

    "☶ I'll open up the gateway then. You and the others pass through and I'll stay here as a distraction. " The other mage responded to Unnuk's suggestion. [unnuk] Alright...[/unnuk] Was all she could manage to say. She figured staying up here alone would be suicide but their wasn't much she could do to stop him, and if he was a strong as she thought he might be, he could buy the people on the deck time to escape. Just then she head the sound she had been fearing most. The barrier shattered, the kinetic barrier breaking into thousands of shining pieces. She was immediately glad she had boosted her speed, and that she had summoned the bear. The wolves poured through the doorway, a seething river of teeth, fur, and fury. Her bear spirit swung its massive claws back and forth, throwing wolves off the edge of the building, as she darted back and forth slashing and cutting where she could. The knife sadly wasn't real silver, just highly polished, so all she could do was slow them down while the healed. Behind her the other mage was moving the citizens through the barrier, but it was a bit slower than she had hoped it would be. She wouldn't give up though. Jumping back behind the bear for a moment she sheathed her fighting knife and removed her three bone handled throwing knives. Each enchanted with a returning spell. From the cover of the bear she through the first one, then the second. As she through the third knife she called back the first to her hand. Throwing that one she called back the second, repeating the process over and over, juggling the knives, calling them back into her hands a moment after the sunk into their target. Once in awhile she missed, but the wall behind the wolves caught the knives, keeping them in range for her to call back. She was, at this moment a machine gun of blades, her enhances speed allowing her to through faster than her regular body ever could. One wolf made it past her bear, she rushed forward and slammed into it, driving her shoulder into its solar plexus, her speed granting her extra force to drive it back. Her blades sinking in under its ribs. A scant moment before its claws landed on her she back peddled and recalled her blades. They weren't great for stabbing, but they did in a pinch, and she was definitely in a pinch at this moment. Howling the wolf stood up on its legs. It rushed her, its muzzle covered in spittle and blood. She charged it back and at the last moment she drops to her thigh and "baseball" slides under it. Swiping her daggers at the tendons of his legs. The wolf, as it feel kicked out at her, slamming into her rib cage. Stars spun in her vision, and before she could correct herself a hand grabbed the back of her shirt, pulling her backwards. "☶ I said get through the portal! " The other mage said as he threw her through. Her last thought was to call all her daggers back to their sheaths. The last vision she had of the rooftop was of her bear spirit beginning to fuze out. He couldn't actually be injured, but too many swipes through his form would dissipate him. Then, everything went dark. She landed with an; [unnuk] Umpf! [/unnuk] The sudden shock of the hard floor bringing her back into consciousness. She looked around, the basement was large, but other than a freight elevator and a single door she couldn't see any other way in. Thankfully the power was still on. [unnuk] Bar the doors. Put the heaviest stuff closest to the door. [/unnuk] She ordered, with as much authority as she could manage at the moment. The people began moving to pile whatever they could find in front of the two entrances. She cancelled her speed enhancement. To much longer and she'd be acting like a cat. She already had a craving for heavy cream that wouldn't go away until she indulged it. Back on the roof her bear continued to fight, swinging and biting for all he was worth. The spirit knew it was going to fall soon, but he had been summoned and given an order, and he would follow it as long as he could. The little huntress had entrusted him with this task, she had placed her faith in him. His thoughts faded away as another wolf charged him, He roared his fury and leaned in to clamp down on the wolf's neck, his powerful arms ripping into the soft tender skin and fur of his belly. As he attacked another wolf tried to bite his leg, its jaws passing through his form. He threw the corpse of the dead wolf in his mouth to the floor. But there was always another to take its place. The next wolf came and he raked his claws across its muzzle. Knocking it to the side as he followed up with another swipe, connecting with the side of another wolf's head. Again he cocked his head back and roared up to the blood red moon. The blood that passed threw his body energized him but he was taking more and more hits now. For each swipe, each bite he gave he received three more. The bear was aware of the other human on the roof with him, but he couldn't spare the attention. The human seemed to be holding his own against the onslaught. His magic strange and foreign to the bear. Normally he would try and sniff it, he and his kin loved to learn. Now though...with his energy leaking, and his form fuzzing in and out he made his last moments count. He reared up on his hind legs, taking two big wolf clearing swipes before dropping back to all fours and beginning his final charge. He used his immense size and power to push and knock the beast back and to the side, some falling, others managing to catch themselves before the plummeted to their deaths. As he reached the door his body began to twinkle light stars in the night sky, and with one last roar of fury he winked out. His spirit returned to the ancient astral plane of his people. Back in the basement Unnuk shuddered as she felt the bear spirit return to his home. Such a large and powerful spirit passing back into the veil always caused a ripple through her. [unnuk] Let's hope the doors hold...or that they don't find us. [/unnuk] She said out loud, as she looked around. A few minutes passed and she found a craft services cart, a bit of food still on it. It was cold but at this point she would take whatever she could. She ate quickly and as cleanly as she could. She felt the energy surging through her body as she quickly metabolised everything she consumed. Her body craving the energy. Feeling almost back to regular she pulled her summoning bone from her coat again. This time bringing forth a dozen mice. [unnuk] Spread through the vents and anywhere else you can. If the wolves come down this way, Run back to me and raise the alarm. [/unnuk] She would normally pay them honor like she did with the bear, but they were lower in the hierarchy than she was, so it wasn't absolutely necessary. The mice scampered off to do as she ordered, and after about five minutes had passed she sat down in the lotus position. She trusted her spirits but she wasn't going to put a mouse's speed against that of the monsters above. She closed her eyes, and began to breath with long slow meditative breaths. Her senses expanding to alert her to all the wild-life within her range. All but 2 of the mice were in range. Starting with the closest mouse she joined her astral self with his, piggy backing onto his senses. The world suddenly becoming different as she saw, smelled, heard, and felt what the mouse felt. Back in the basement it would look as though she were asleep. This particular mouse was in the air vent directly across from the basement door, and she could see through his eyes that at the moment nothing was threatening them. She repeated the process with the other 9 mice she could reach. Each set of eyes and ears showing her nothing but calm and quiet. Except for the last mouse, which revealed a woman limping down the staircase. Unnuk mentally cursed, and using her Animal Empathy she encouraged the spirit mouse to go to her, and lead her to the basement. The mouse hesitated but eventually scampered down and began tugging on the female's pant leg. It's little blue and purple body of light a stark contrast to the dimly lit staircase. (OOC: Reference for the mouse https://www.pinterest.com/pin/121456521178017513/ ) She left the mouse to do its job. It would do all it could now to get her to follow, but if she didn't then it was on her. She kept flicking back and forth between the mice she had left keeping a constant surveillance up, and mentally praying to every God and Goddess of her pantheon to keep her, and these people safe.

  12. BLOOD MOON - Empire State Building

    Unnuk stood at the "front" of the observatory by her bear. Breathing slow and steady. She watched as the barrier shimmered and a wyr's paw reached out towards her. With her enhanced speed she flung her blade out, slicing up the creature's arm from wrist to elbow in one smooth strike with her silver blade. The wolf withdrew its arm and howled as the barrier became a more solid surface once more. She hated injuring them, but at the moment it was them or her. This time she was choosing herself. ⦓ How long can you keep the barrier up? ⦔ She called out as she checked on her bear. He was breathing heavily, ready and almost itching to fight, but they had not actually crossed the barrier so he wouldn't attack until they did. Seeing the desperate look on the faces of those around her Unnuk shouted out to the other mage ⦓ Should we try the basement? Their should only be the service access door once we are below ground. It might make it easier to defend these people. I doubt we can make it on the streets, and even if we did...we'd just be over run in seconds. ⦔ She wasn't even sure they could make it to the basement, but it was a better shot than anything else. Best case they only had to defend on small door way, meaning dealing with one wolf at a time. Worst case they all, or most of them were attacked or bit on the way up. Even still, if they could save some lives it was better than fighting here and everyone dying like sheep caught in a pen.
  13. BLOOD MOON - Empire State Building

    Unnuk shook her head and looked up at the man speaking to her. "He will hold off many...that is the strongest spirit my people can summon. Once I get my strength back he, along with my silver knife will be able to defend that doorway. For a time at least...Their numbers...they are so many I doubt we can hold out forever even if I had access to more power. What about your barriers? Can you focus and strengthen specific areas? Or is it a general cover all?" Unnuk got up to her feet. Her energy was returning on its own...but slowly. She picked her knife up, and moved to stand next to the bear. Her body shimmering with blue green light, like that which made up the bear, as she spoke an invocation in her native tongue. Bringing about speed. She had gone to St. Louis to visit one of the few remaining zoos. She had managed to sneak in and make physical contact with most of the animals there, giving her many new powers. This time she was invoking Cheetah. For his great speed. She could have called on a stronger animal, but strength didn't matter as much, when you where half the size of your opponent and they had claws and fangs. While she only had skin, and the clothing she wore. No, she would dodge and dart around, making small nicks and cuts as she went through their lines. The silver would do most of the work. But she hoped it didn't come to that. With any luck at all the barrier would hold, or the Great Bear would occupy them enough for them to realize that they should move on to easier prey.
  14. BLOOD MOON - Empire State Building

    Unnuk found herself at the top of the Empire state building on this particular night. She wasn't here for the full moon like the others, just as a typical tourist. However upon seeing the blood red moon and hearing the cries of the wave of lycanthropes, lost in their bloodlust she knew in her heart the night had taken a serious turn. "☶ LISTEN UP, EVERYBODY. If you see one of these papers, DO. NOT. TOUCH. IT. They should keep the deck safe long enough for the beasts to lose interest. " She heard a man shout. She turned to look at what he was speaking about, and wished once again she had been gifted with the second sight so she could see what he was talking about. She believed that his powers were real though, not suspecting him of being a pretender like some scam artist might try and do. No scam was this elaborate or required this many participants. But she also wasn't going to leave matters to him alone. She was forced to make a tough choice. Guard the ledge overlooking the city, or guard the door. She doubted they lycans would be able to climb so high up an almost sheer surface, but she did figure they could easily make their way inside. From there it was a simple matter of using the stairs to get to the heavily populated area. "I need everyone to move. Clear a circle!" She shouted, drawing a silver knife from her coat. Most of the crowd either heard her, or saw the knife and gave her the distance she needed. Then she sat lotus position and drew the blade across her palm. With her other hand she produced a Scrimshawed claw from a bear. She wiped the blood across the engravings and it began to glow softly like the norther lights. She placed this at her feet and began to chant in her native tongue. After a minute the claw's glow began to shift and whirl its way to the door. There, just inside of the magical border the other mage had created a truly great and massive polar bear stood. It's body wasn't truly physical, but it had a physical presence, and was able to interact with this side of the veil. Switching back to English she bowed over the claw and began to speak, her voice radiating with a hint of power. "Great Bear! I Unnuk, you humble and faithful servant do lend you a taste of my life force. In exchange I charge you with guarding these people and this area from the wolves that now prowle outside our door from now until the crimson moon closes its mighty eye. They seek to hunt and to consume the flesh of man, but in this they shall fail, for no wolf can stand up to the might of the Great Bear. He that is second only to the creator of us all, Nulliajuk . Do you accept my trade?" The bear did not speak, but instead lifted his head to the sky and loosed a silent but fierce looking roar. Rising up onto his hind legs as he did so. His roar ending the bear landed upon his forelegs once more, the observation deck shaking slightly with his strength and weight. His ever watchful eyes turning back to the doorway with a determined expression upon his muzzle. Her deal now accepted Unnuk felt strength drain from her limbs. Bear was always tough to bring out, but he would be worth it this time. She then turned her attention upon the people around her. Some staring at her in shock and awe. "Does anyone...have any food or water? I need...to recover...some of my...strength." She asked, her voice just barely loud enough to be heard, even in the stunned silence of the on lookers.

  18. Northern Delights Grand Opening

    Unnuk stood just inside the door to her shop. It was finally time. Two weeks had passed with the shop open for short stents. Earning her just enough money to cover the cost of today. Everyone who visited would receive a free cup of tea, any blend they desired. She had Yura upstairs to keep an eye on things. He would warn her if anyone tried to pocket anything without paying for it. She had taken out a few adds, so she was hoping for at least a somewhat busy day today. WIth a heavy sigh she lifted the blind covering the large window of her door, revealing the open sign behind it. She was relieved to see there was a small crowd outside waiting for her to open. With a smile she opened up the door and pinned it open with the stopper. " Welcome to Northern Delights. I am Unnuk and it's a pleasure to see all of you here today. I shall serve tea, and then those that are interested are welcome to stay for the tour, or you are free to wander the shop while you enjoy your tea." She moved behind the tea station, all of her boilers fixed and ready to work the overtime today would bring. She worked hard to serve her customers, smiling the entire time as she brewed cup after cup of hot tea. Labrador being the most popular, due to the fact that only the Inuit new the secrets to brewing it safely.
  19. A new city to call home

    Unnuk stood on the Fort Lee side of the George Washington bridge; with a deep sigh she overlooked the massive island that was to become the home of her and her fellow tribesmen. They had pulled over for a short break before entering into the city, mostly to stretch their legs before the long process of crossing Manhattan and entering into Brooklyn where she would, for the first time in as long as she could remember, be living on her own. Well...not truly on her own, the rest of the tribe were moving into the other apartments in the building, but she would have her own private space for once, and that was more than enough for now. The first few months had been rough. She set aside every bit of extra cash she could, and had finally earned and saved enough to open her store. She had taken the F train all over the city to find a location with good potential but hadn't found a single one to her liking. Two weeks passed before she heard about the doctor's office at 368 9th St. closing down due to the owners passing. A mere four blocks from her apartment Unnuk went to check it out. The location was more than she had hoped for. Two stories tall and located on the corner of 9th St. and 6th Ave. it was located by many restaurants which would help bring in customers who were either bored, or waiting on reservations. It took another week but she eventually made the building her own and set about making it her shop. The first floor was a coffee house decorated in the handmade artwork of her tribe along with some of their traditional tools that had survived the trip. The second floor was turned into a "New Age" supply store offering herbs, stones, and the other various tools needed to practice a pagan faith. She also had a sign posted offering various rites and rituals to perform for those in need. Unnuk sat up from her daydreaming, it was a particularly slow day, but she didn't mind because it was still early. Barely past noon it wouldn't pick up until about one or two when people would come in to drink coffee on their lunch break. Absentmindedly she reached down and scratched Yura's head smiling as the little white fox slept in warm spot of the counter created by the ray of sun that shone through the windows. He didn't wake up fully, but shifted so her fingers landed behind his left ear. "Good boy." She whispered softly to him, as she stood to make herself a cup of chamomile tea with honey and cream. She also refilled Yura's bowl with water and a few ice cubes before sitting back behind her counter again, happy to pet him as she waited for someone to enter her store.
  20. A new city to call home

    Unnuk stood with him, concerned at first, then he made his way out, rather quickly. She frowned and fell back into her chair. She was extremely confused. She mentally called Yura up with her, and the two of them sat there, her hand running softly down his back as he stared up at her. "You wanna go for a run later?" She asked out loud in the fox dialect. Using one of her basic powers to vocally speak to him. "You know I'm always interested in going for a run....but can we do it outside the city this time? I'm not a fan of all the traffic we had to deal with last time." Yura responded back. Unnuk nodded and went downstairs, two more hours and then she would close the shop. This week was all short days anyway, just to start gathering interest before her grand opening.
  21. A new city to call home

    "That is closer to what he is, yes and I must admit that it is partially because of Yura that it is so cold downstairs. Though he only causes about a ten degree difference. The rest is sadly poor insulation due to the buildings age. As for Yura's other magics...well there is his télépathie to consider. He may yet manifest more powers, but only time will tell. Truthfully it matters little to me as he provides me with good company, and even better conversations." She took the final sip of her tea and leaned back in her chair. " If you don't mind answering I would love to ask about you as well. Tell me, do you merely have the second sight? Or do your abilities manifest themselves in other ways?"
  22. A new city to call home

    Unnuk shifted uncomfortably for a moment. Having someone see that much about her made her feel rather strange. "So you are a seer then?" she mused. She sat down across from him at the table and took a rather long pull off her cup of tea, almost draining it before setting it down in front of her. "I cannot confirm or deny your assesment of my powers. I must apologize as English is not my first tongue, nor is it my second tongue for that matter and I am...unfamiliar with the word. I can tell you however that your evaluation of Yura though is a tad off. He is a friend but not quite a fox spirit. He is culturally closer to what many others would call an... ela..men...tal." She had to sound the word out carefully, having had few occasions to use it before.
  23. Northern Delights

    Welcome Upon entering her shop customers are greeted by a friendly voice welcoming them to Northern Delights. She sits behind the counter top across from the door, softly petting a rather large arctic fox, who looks at each customer as they come in before slowly blinking and laying his head down. The inside of the shop is fairly chilly on the ground floor and as such she wears fairly warm clothing all year around. The First Floor The floors are made of a dark hardwood, and the table area in the center protects them, via the use of a dark green area rug. The single bathroom in the store is unisex and located underneath the upper portion of the staircase which leads to the second floor. Behind the long counter on the right are various containers of herbs and spices. The chalkboard overhead contains over 45 different types of tea, and tea blends. Most given such names as Immuni-Tea, and are given a brief description of what is in them and what they help with. Large shop windows keep the store well lit with natural light during the daytime, and during the night large overhead lights light the floor with their soft glow. Giving the store a warm, and welcoming feeling. The walls are decorated with artifacts and paintings from her native lands, and when asked about them she will happily explain what each is. Items of particular note: -- A block printed set of paintings containing an Owl, a depiction of a journey, and an image of people being chased by a bear. -- A large seal skin drum decorated around the borders with various fangs and claws, and its single drumstick made out of a rather large bone --A glass display case, tightly locked and hung up behind the counter containing the cash register displaying three Ivory bladed knives, each with a scenic image carved into the blade. The Second Floor Customers are welcome to eat and drink their tea on either floor, both offering tables for them to do so, or to socialize at. Upon heading up the staircase the store takes a sudden change. The pleasant scents of herb and spice give way to the soft power of blended incense and books. The upstairs in notably warmer than downstairs and has similar windows to achieve the same soft warm lighting. In the upper right corner of the store are various religious books for sale, mostly containing modern new age books. One shelf however is protected by bulletproof glass and is heavily locked. A note just below explaining that these are rare and expensive books, and are not for sale to the average person. Across from that sit several display cases. Most containing modern ritual items needed to practice the pagan faiths. 7 day candles, athames, various stones, stick and cone incense, and statues of various gods. Once particular cabinet however is dedicated to her people and their craft, and while a sign says none of the items in this cabinet are specifically for sale, interested customers can speak to her about having similar items made by a member of her tribe for them. It should be noted however that these items are not cheap as they are hand crafted and made of raw materials that were then worked in traditional methods to become the item seen by the customer. Across from the staircase in the center of the far wall is a small alcove. This area is used by local bands whom Unnuk allows to play in her store on weekends, and during the weekdays is used for poetry, or small class lectures depending on what day one arrives. The walls are decorated with simple brush painted nature scenes and the northern lights.
