((OOC/background info/profiles thread is http://www.iwakuroleplay.com/showthread.php?t=5970 ))At first it looks like two flares are shot from the line of trees. The resounding noise would probably have startled the contestants if they haven't already gotten their bearings. If they were to look closely, they would see that the two flares are connected by a large steel bar - the sunlight bounces off of it for everyone to see. As the flares go up into the air, a monstrous sound fills the air. It begins as a slow rumble and then as the noise peaks in volume, the contestants realize the sound is of thousands of people cheering. The flares hang suspended in the air for a second, the flames dying out. Suddenly, the flares bloom with life, becoming alive once more. The whole contraption hovers in the air and suddenly a hologram appears over the steel bar, almost like a flat screen television. A person appears, sitting against a black back drop and poor lighting. A giant golden pendant hanging from their neck catches the spotlight briefly. It is hard to distinguish whether it is a male or a female because the figure is so streamlined. The long white trousers, the white shirt, ,and the white jacket with coat tails adds a touch of class, along with the fedora hat (it has a bright purple feather on the side) and a long brown cane which the person holds in their hand. Not surprising the figure looks reminiscent of a pimp and hides their face with their hat by tipping their head down... It speaks to the contestants, the voice coming out modified. "Contestants, I have some bad news to give you. Unfortunately, my audience is becoming very impatient and now wish to be entertained. As I'm sure you know, from their excited cheering. So to make sure things will be sped up, and for my audience's entertainment, I going to... Heat things up for you." The earth moves beneath their feet and a whirring sound rings in their ears.... " Before we begin, I would like to give you some valuable information. I'm sure you know that it is currently fall and it's going to get a bit nippy once darkness hits. And by the by, it is now about 4 o'clock so you'd best find shelter soon and make some friends.I'm going to count to three, that's how long you have to get ready. Oh and please don't forget your care packages. I'm sure you're going to need them." The whirring noise becomes louder.... "...1"Suddenly circles in the earth open up, five in all. "...2"Large contraptions rise out from these circles. A rectangular pack sits on the platform it rises out of it, with a short tube running out of it which connects to a long, slender barrel. The entire weapon is supported by a bi-pod, the barrels pointing towards the tree line, the weapons resting near the feet of the contestants. "...3"A terrifying hiss and a jet of liquid is propelled from the barrel. Half a second later, the liquid is lit, and a pillar of flame erupts from the barrel, extending up to 10 feet in front. Five flamethrowers are in use, igniting whatever is in its path.
