    And they were off! Taika withdrew her scanner, Shayera set off to look around and window shop, and Zim... well, was being Zim. There was no point in arguing the ingenuity of an Irken invader. It didn't take long for them to find items of interest, either. Within the minute Taika had found a very intriguing artifact: a key. Or, rather, a very basic one. It had gems for eyes and the key's snout and teeth were fashioned of bone. It also displayed crude metal framework, perhaps for decoration, and it was fairly modest in weight. Perhaps too heavy for Taika, though. Shayera, in the meanwhile, had found what appeared to be a worn shard. There were pictographs scratched in and it was glazed, mayhap over a fire long ago. Ceramic in nature, hmm?

    And then, there was... Zim. He found a smelly, old boot. A recent one.

    That was perhaps the most important item found of them all.

    -----

    Dices rolled:

    Taika: 10 (A key, because all RPGs have annoying, little keys you must collect)
    Shayera: 8 (A shard! Piece of a map?)
    Zim: 2 (A smelly boot. What more do you want?)

    The trio had set to searching, and their search did not go unrewarded! The weird one, still not fit for a name, or even a Zim-Nickname yet, had found a key. That was useless. What would a KEY unlock on a JUNGLE planet? A jungle DOOR? The Winged woman had found......a shardy thingy. Pffft, that was useless too. Wasn't even fit for giving someone a splinter!

    And Zim found................a smelly boot. Zim's eyes got wide as he held the boot up as if it were a treasure. He grinned widely as he overlooked what he had. This may LOOK like a boot, but surely, this was not a REAL boot! Maybe, perhaps, it was a weapon DISGUISED as a boot? After all, he doubted that the aliens here wore boots. He cackled and waved the boot at the others tauntingly.

    "I found a boot! And YOU guys have STUPID things! FINDING THINGS VICTORY FOR ZIM!" He cackled wildly.

    It was a good thing she had brought along that scanner. They had found some interesting things, and rather quickly, too. Taika held the key she had pulled from the ruins up to inspect it; the gemstone "eyes", flawless deep purple star sapphires, sparkled faintly in the half-light. The dark metal curled around the ancient artifact contrasted sharply against the white of bleached bone. This key could be useful... if not, she would hopefully be able to keep it.

    Shayera had found something significantly plainer, but no less fascinating, not by any means. It appeared to be an old shard of some sort of ceramic, engraved with strange and mysterious images. It could be part of something useful, perhaps a map... Taika made a mental note to look at it in more detail later; just then, she thought to place an inconspicuous marking beacon in a moderately obscure part of the surrounding ruin, so they could find the location later.

    Now, Zim's find... was worrying. Somewhat fitting for him, Taika thought, but that can't mean anything good... can it? A recently dropped boot meant that someone had passed through here a short while before they did. On a planet like this, they had no way of knowing whether that someone would be hostile or not. The team would have to be careful.

    Ugh! Just then, Zim decided to yell that his dirty old boot was better than what everyone else had found. If Taika had had feet big enough for the job, she would have squished him. He had no respect for ancient history, nor did he seem to have any real sense of value beyond choosing the largest, most destructive weapon he could lay his grubby little claws on.

    Taika stored the key in one of the suit's built-in storage compartments and floated in place, waiting.

    "Would the aliens here even be wearing boots?" Shayera wondered, casting a glance upon her shard, trying to make some sense out of the markings. It looked like a worthless piece of junk upon first glance, but artefacts of unknown civilisations were precious. The woman didn't care much for it, but she was concerned at the possibility of others having already been here--and recently, judging by the smell.

    "Keep your ears and eyes sharp," she suggested. "This place might have more than nasty indigenous surprises in store for us."

    Each with their interesting finds, the group began to share what they had unearthed. A key, a shard, and a boot. Yes, very important finds indeed. However, whereas Taika and Shayera were calm and dignified about it, Zim... was Zim. He shouted and raised his voice, holding up his precious treasure with victory and triumph.

    Not one of his better ideas.

    Flash!

    An icy blue streak zipped through the bush, then another, and another! Wild animal calls whooped in the air, communicating to each other about their latest meal. What were they? Where were they? How many, and how big? Suddenly three native creatures, unknown, sprang from their hiding and cornered the adventurers. Their drooling jaws snapped madly at their heels, edging the three closer and closer to a corner. Yes, these animals were smart, and they knew how to hunt. With their growls and their grunts, they talked to one another and thought about how to divide their prey. Seemed the adventurers would have to defeat these creatures to continue.

    With a snarl, one of the predators bares their glistening fangs and makes a mad dash for Shayera! In just a hop, skip and away it leaps at her and rakes her with its infantile talons!

    Now he'd really done it. That accursed bug had managed to bring a group of ravenous alien creatures with his infernal yelling. If the ruins were damaged because of this, Taika would be very mad at him. Well, there wasn't much use sitting around and waiting when under attack. First, they had to find out more about the pale blue predators trying to back them into a corner. Taika had been the only one to bring along a scanner, it seemed, so it fell to her to begin analyzing the creatures. As one of the beasts narrowly missed Shayera, Taika leveled the scanning device at the foe; within moments, a readout appeared with data on the deadly alien animals. A single command later, the information was transmitted to the other combatants' suit computers, along with a personal note to avoid damage to the surroundings at any cost. Precious historical sites such as this demanded a clean battle.

    Action: Scan [Reveal information about the opponent. Takes one turn.]

    With a hiss, Shayera stepped back. It didn't penetrate her armour, however, which was a good thing. She hefted her mace, not wanting to go for the blasters just yet, and rammed the weapon right into one of the animal's faces.

    Attack first, ask questions later.

    Zim gave Shayera a small nod when she suggested that they be on the lookout. Quickly stashing his boot-that-was-not-really-a-boot-but-really-a-powerful-weapon-most-likely inside a large pocket in his suit, Zim preemptively held his weapon up in the air, currently set on heavy duty cannon. And no sooner had he done this when a pack of large blue....turtle...thingies bound out of the woods and began cornering and attacking.

    Zim let out an insane and excited cackle. Finally, aliens that weren't cowards! Aliens that wanted to FIGHT! "AAHAHAHAHAAAA! BLUE TURTLE THINGIES OF DOOM, PREPARE TO MEET YOUR MAKER!" He yelled, still cackling as he aimed the weapon at one of the creature's eyeless faces. "BOOM, HEADSHOT!"

    "SKREEEE!"

    Two of the snarling beasts flipped over their muscular feet from the attacks, but as they quickly rose back up it was clear that these little beasts were not deterred just yet. There was another series of barks and the predators spread out, hissing and keeping their eyeless heads low, feeling their prey out through their primal senses. As they prepared their next plan of assault to down the team, Taika's scan completed and the creatures had been successfully identified.

    As soon as it had finished, however, the creatures let out a unified roar and proceeded to charge at Shayera once more, intent on pinning her to the ground and ravaging her body!

    The ugly blue creatures - Mukrash Pups, the scanner called them - didn't appear to be having too much luck with accuracy at the moment, luckily for the team; Shayera had managed to dodge even a combined attack from the three beasts. Still, they looked tough - Shayera and Zim had only managed to make a relatively minor dent in the animals' thick hides. Much of Taika's magic was still locked by insufficient levels, although she could heal in a pinch. For now, a good old-fashioned battering would have to suffice. Her staff floated off the suit's back and into a combat stance, then flew at the creatures and delivered a strike to each before returning to its owner. Thwack! Thwack! Thwack!
