• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

[Tier II] Raguda City Gym

Bluberry Bat

Mostly Ghostly
Raguda City Gym
Badge: Psypher Badge

Raguda city is, at best, the seedy neon underbelly of the region – nestled within the belly of an ancient, fog-covered, long inactive volcano, and forever free of sunlight. Instead, the buildings, lamps, and even streets themselves are laced in a variety of bright neon coloured lights, reflecting off the obsidian cave walls and giving the environment a pulsing glow – whilst the bass from the numerous clubs rattles the streets underneath your feet, giving it an unsteady rhythm, as if the city were an entity in itself. The services and products offered here tend to speak for themselves, and the naturally dark alleys only lend themselves to this.

Nestled in the centre of all this is a huge, circular, multi-tiered structure – laced with so much light, text, and adverts (in multiple languages) it makes your head spin. Inside, the music is at ear-splitting levels, and the bass rumbles your insides in a disconcerting – if not invigorating way. (And you hope to yourself the residents are absolutely sure this volcano is very, very inactive – it feels like it could set off a seismic event at this point.)

It takes some time of wandering around to find what you’re looking for – the standard issue league signs posted within and meant to guide challengers are largely covered up with spilt drinks (you hope), graffiti, and band stickers. Asking the bartenders or club goers isn’t too plausible, either, given it would be impossible to hear each other. (ordering drinks even seems to be a complex hybrid sign language here)

Winding around the centre of the club – a sprawling neon marquee in of itself – a spiralling staircase finally raises you to the top level. The music isn’t being pumped into this room directly (though it’s still very much present from the downstairs), and by now it’s almost a deafening silence. (Or actual deafness; you can’t tell any more.) The floor is covered in a layer of fog, and shadows are cast as the light from the city below filters in through the window encircling the rounded room.

The leader stands at the far end across from you, occluded by the light from behind, with only enough definition to their face to make out the outline of a fine slasher smile; as if beckoning you to make the first move, if you dare~
