The smokey, warm home of the wood miners guild. This is a thriving secondary industry, with the center of town being devoted to an elevator that descends into a large cavern in which a strange form of fungus grows that possesses many of the same traits of wood. The majority of the town works at some job related to the Rhook fungus, either in the mining or the processing of it. They build and sell beautiful Rhook furniture, carts, and other wood-based paraphernalia here. A number of auctions are held here, with the items often bearing a smokey scent or bit of ash - explained as having been recovered from the ashes of a recent fire.

All visitors must report to their customs entry, an easy diversion given that it is the only entry into the town. Provision of an adequate gift will result in their tin visa being stamped with a series of lines that looks like the rings of a tree. The police here are marginally more relaxed about proof of identification, but they are sharply on the lookout for arson and any property-related crimes. There is a smokey scent hanging in the air and a whole section of the city is little more than a warm, charred cinder. Questions about this earn the explanation of a dark mindset overcoming half the residents of that area only two months back and it worsened quickly into strife. One night, the area went up in flames and many of the residents perished with their homes and nearly the whole town was lost. Since then, they have been careful about fires and changes in personality both, with many residents currently residing in jail until their foul tempers dissipate.

[If anything it is the swords that automatically catch Prussia's attention. He doesn't have one himself, because in the last few centuries guns have really been more his style, but he will never lose his love for a good blade. Wooden ones in this day and age--okay he doesn't know exactly what age it is here--stand out. His little yellow bird chirps easily on top of his head while he reaches out and touches one of the hilts without a care as to whether or not the person carrying them minds.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Crack!)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-14 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Kaine still wasn't used to people being able to sneak up on him. Even though he knew he had lost his spider sense in all of it's fucked up forms over a year ago, he still half-expected it to give him some sort of advanced warning when someone was trying to sneak up on him. The little bird, however, was just as good, as Kaine spun on his heel as soon as he heard it chirp that close to his ear.

Okay, whoever this was, he was far too close. More importantly, judging by the position of said guy's hand, he was trying to take his stuff. And Kaine, not being known for his patience and understanding, did what felt right. He attempted to punch the guy in the face.

[Prussia was more surprised by the guy spinning around ready to punch him than anything. It was like he expected him to try and steal the damn swords or something! He dodged, but the fist still caught his cheek--the guy was fast--in a graze. Damn that that hurt! His little yellow bird was chirping loudly, fluttering in the air and above Prussia's head. He brings a hand up to his cheek, glaring.

He brings up a hand and waves it rapidly as if asking "What the hell?!" No sound comes out of his throat, but it's obvious he's angry.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Every wound you gave me I'm going to--)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-15 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
[What the hell was this guy angry for?!] Don't touch my stuff.
cantbewalled: (Whatever)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-15 04:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[One of these days Prussia is going to need to learn a better way of communicating, since waving his arms and pointing to his eye and then back towards the guy probably doesn't help explain much. The little yellow bird drops back down onto his head with a squeak and Prussia huffs in annoyance. He holds up a finger, a common signal for "hold on!" before reaching into his coat to pull out the notepad he had to carry around nowadays. He really does get tired of writing notes.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (I just want to run)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-17 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Was this guy really trying to pretend he wasn't doing anything? He had felt the guy's hand on his backpack. But more than anything, he was weirded out by the fact the guy hadn't said anything in his defense. Kaine tensed when the man reached into his coat, more on instinct than feeling in actual danger, but relaxed when he saw the notepad. Wait... was this guy mute?]
cantbewalled: (Serious)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-17 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[Of course he wasn't doing anything worth getting punched over, asshole. But at least he yelled at him in English so he wouldn't be writing everything out in German. He holds up the notepad with his fast and therefore kind of sloppy handwriting.]

I was only checking out the swords, dummkopf! Be glad I don't get offended so easily!
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (No. No Way. Never.)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-18 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
And that's how you do it? By snatching it from people's bags? And you're surprised I punched you? [Yeah there was no apology in there.]
cantbewalled: (Fuck that)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-23 08:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[The little bird chirps loudly in displeasure and Prussia is just getting really annoyed. It's not like it was a big deal, what is this guy freaking out about? He scribbles a bit more onto the notepad.]

I wasn't going to take it out. Just seeing what wood it's made of. Who cares to steal a fake sword?
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Scrutinizing stare)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-23 09:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Draws one of the swords from his bag, but doesn't offer it to Prussia. He's still deciding if he should hit him with it.] It's whatever wood they use here. Designed to last.

And people have stolen less for less.
cantbewalled: (What is that?)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-23 11:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Prussia is getting angry--rather unfairly, really--but he doesn't storm off. Oh no, he wants to get the last word. How dare this guy act like he's some thief? He doesn't even know him! His writing gets larger, but kind of illegible.]

Only a pathetic shit would steal a shitty ass sword that can't even cut. Like a fancy stick!

unobtainableredemption: hand (Sting of Kaine)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-24 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Kaine lashes out before he can really think his plan through, smacking Prussia in the head with the wooden sword, before sweeping his arm back, using the sword and his momentum to knock him back on his ass. Taking a step forward, he brings the tip of the sword to Prussia's throat.] I don't need it to cut. I can just crush your wind pipe instead.

[Everything happened really fast and all Prussia got at first was pain and the shift of gravity as he falls flat on his back, eyes blinking up towards the sky. Then he realizes there is a sword at his throat, but it's still fucking wood and nowhere near a threat. Instead he's more surprised by how quick that all happened. This guy has got fire and Prussia likes it.

He reaches up just as fast to grab the sword, putting pressure on it enough that the wood creaks, but not enough to shatter it right there. He's laughing, but there's no sound to it, just the twisting of his face as his eyes squint and his cheeks go red from him smiling so broadly. The little yellow bird chirps and flutters around in a circle before dropping down to the ground beside him.]
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (You can't be serious)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-26 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Pulls the sword back on instinct; for the price he paid on them he wasn't about to get them ruined so quickly by some crazy mute guy. Once safely in his bag, he looked back at the aforementioned crazy mute guy and he was... laughing? Why was he laughing? And why was it so creepy when he laughed like that? Kaine snarls at first, believing the laugh was at his expense, but it fades into confusion when he feels that his assumption was off, even if he couldn't place why.

What the hell was up with this guy?
]
cantbewalled: (Flashy)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-26 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
[With the sword pulled back and out of his face, Prussia is still laughing, but manages to sit up and clap his hands in applause briefly. This guy at least knew how to use the thing, even if he still thinks wooden swords are cheap when you could always get a real one. But at least he's not a weakling, even if he did take a cheap shot at him when he wasn't prepared. Next time Prussia wouldn't let down his guard so easily!

He pushes himself up to his feet, nodding to himself about his decision and then he pats his pockets, only to realize he doesn't have his pen and paper, because it had been in his hand when he got knocked to the ground. He looks around on the ground and a chirp directs him to his little bird, sitting right on top of the notepad. But where the hell did the pen go?

He looks over to the guy and motions with his hand, as if he was holding something to write with in his grip. He caused Prussia to lose, it so help find it, damn it.]
unobtainableredemption: Scarlet Spider (Shut up! I'm listening)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-26 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Did the guy honestly expect him to find his pen? Fuck that, it wasn't his problem.

...Though he had to admit, he was curious to learn what this guy's deal was, and with him apparently being mute and all, short of the two of them learning sign language or playing charades, there was only one other way to figure it out. With a sigh, Kaine places a hand on his head, as if he has a headache, and "asks" the local spider... bug... things to find it for them.

He points to where one of them finds something.
] Next to that guy's stall, in the bush.
cantbewalled: (My beer)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-27 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Prussia raises an eyebrow at the guy's gesture. It reminds him of weird things "psychics" do to try and convince you they can talk to the dead or see your future. But then he mentions the bush and Prussia looks over in that direction. Leaning down he picks up the notepad and snaps his fingers twice, then motions in that direction. It may not look like much, but the little yellow bird chirps in response and shoots off quickly, diving into the bush. It's barely a minute later before he pops out with a flutter and a call of triumph, the pen in his talons.

Prussia grins and claps for the bird, who flies up and sweeps down to drop the pen in his hand before settling back in his hair. He flips back open the notepad and writes down a quick message before holding it up. For all that work one might think the message should be long or detailed. Instead all it says is:]


Not bad, Heißsporn Hotshot.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Now before it... it molests that bull)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-27 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Cute, the bird could do tricks.

Kaine arches an eyebrow at the German. That... was German, wasn't it?
]

So glad I kept you entertained. Now what was it you were going to say?
cantbewalled: (Kesesese)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2013-12-27 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Prussia gives a broad shrug and writes a quick message.]

Find a better way to kill with that thing that bludgeoning someone! Wood isn't going to hurt everyone.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (Scrutinizing stare)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2013-12-27 05:56 pm (UTC)(link)
It's for practice, you idiot. The last thing I need in my suite right now is a real sword. [Something tells him May and/or Peter (...but more likely Peter), even with their spider sense, would probably wind up cutting themselves.]
cantbewalled: (A lot going on)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2014-01-02 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[There is eye rolling because that's no excuse. This isn't Japan and it's not a sport for little kids.]

You want to practice, don't cheapen it with a fake sword. Whoever gets cut deserves it for being stupid. Best kind of learning.
unobtainableredemption: Kaine (They'll be coming for me)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-03 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
If I wanted your advice, I'd ask for it.
cantbewalled: (Asking you a few questions)

[personal profile] cantbewalled 2014-01-13 08:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[Humans are so touchy about being told the right way to do things, Prussia just doesn't get why. This guy should be grateful someone is setting him straight! But Prussia just throws up a hand in the air because you can't teach some people and it's dumb to try.]

unobtainableredemption: Kaine (I think it's perfect)

[personal profile] unobtainableredemption 2014-01-16 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Besides, I don't need a sword to fight. I prefer to use my hands. [And, now that he has them, stingers.]
