Thread PL: 1,000 | Rayne paused, glancing up at the ancient structure which soared far, far into the heavens. It was named 'Senbyo Tower' as far as he knew - but other than that the Clan's information on it was scarce. Laughable, given the proximity between them and the divine structure, but most of the ones in power were gods fearing cowards who would rather just give it a wide berth rather than attempt to establish any sort of connection with it. Today, that shall change. Not for the Clan, but himself. If none else would go the extra mile, Rayne would do it himself. There was the tower, of course, and above that was a... sphere like something.
Thinking it best to start at the bottom, the human quickly made his way to the base of Senbyo Tower, staring up the at now looming structure before him. A bit... bigger in person, it seemed. There was the option of simply flying up to it, of course, but... hm. Rayne rolled his shoulders, leaping up before latching onto the pole of the tower. If he didn't HAVE to fly, he wasn't going to. Of course, a climb this high would probably give him a... proper work out, but he'd endured worse in training.
According to some old, sourceless and almost certainly false legends Nashi had looked into, the underworld was supposed to be as far below the surface of the Earth as the top of his Tower was above it. Nashi also knew that the Lookout was as far above the Tower as the Tower was the surface… so, logically, didn’t that mean that as far below the underworld as the underworld was to the surface existed a super-underworld?! No. In any case, the surface, the Tower and the Lookout where the only things that had that neat little relationship, which meant that the top of the Tower was so far away that it definitely wasn’t visible from the surface, and the Lookout twice as unseeable! So if anyone was seeing the Lookout from the surface, it was prolly a clou— wait, no, the Tower went higher than the highest of the clouds, that couldn’t be it... Anyway.
Nashi did all the things Nashi was wont to do. He woke up, tended to the senzu bonsai, greeted the folk who happened to be for any amount of time on the Tower or Lookout, practiced with his Power Pole, shuck his Dragon Radar in case it miraculously started working again, destroyed the universe and maybe not that last one. All in all, a perfectly standard day— the standard day was rather pleasant, luckily.
… Though, still. There were grave threats on the horizon, and he needed to be ready for them.
Looking to his invisible watch, Nashi saw that it was time to disregard the serious training he should have been doing and instead work on his World Record for Getting to the Top of the Tower without Flying™. Nashi got to the surface with ki-enhanced falling (which is where you fly downwards except with a cooler name), all without noticing anything or anyone peculiar on his Tower and at the speed of 18 a lots per time.
When he got to the bottom, it was a simple matter of jumping really, really, and I mean really really quickly. The jump had enough power to make a crater where he jumped, but he did it too quickly for the ground to realise it was supposed to be all crater-y.
If he noticed anyone climbing his Tower he’d cancel his jump with flight, the sudden de-acceleration causing the air to crack loudly. ”’Sup. You here for the Senbyō?”
