It was a city like no other, and no other city suffered such destruction, not even from the war. . .
Years ago; a land that seemed forsaken by the hard city-shell that shielded it. Its shinobi were tough and capable, showcasing skill beyond their peers simply because of what they had to endure, the process of building some small part of the future right now. Manufactored in factory smoke that congealed into particulate iron infused with light, it left an impression that lasted longer than the steam clouds cut to ribbons in the rain. It was a landscape of steel windows and renovated horizons, old stone ziggurats burnt and welded and coded into something new. There was little that could not be found along its winding architectural insanity, buried by the endless procession of storms that blew freely drifting water into an oppressive anchor of darkened sky. The men and women who made this Hidden Village their home held it to be a place of near sacred beauty, but those who'd braved the wilds outside knew the truth. It was no different from the massive capricious child that was Ame No Kuni. It was merely an extension of that untilled abandon that sheltered it, nourished its growth, allowed it to grow into a gray smear through the borders of its neighboring nations.
Now, around every corner is brutality and darkness, despair and things too terrifying to classify.
The torture labs that were its most infamous feature are long gone; but what they contained...what could survive the destruction without perishing in the nothingness left behind, those things are now free. Strange beasts and stranger men, things that defy logic, or exemplify it to such a degree that their mere presence eradicates all other life.
These are the Wastes of Amegakure. This is what the village has become.
* The Ame No Kuni Gates lead here, in fact; this is all there is of Amegakure No Sato. The rules of this thread are simple. Each person to successfully pass through the gates enters Amegakure in this thread. Your goal is to make it to the Ruined Tower alive.
When this thread is entered, 2 Random Encounter Die Rolls will be performed in accordance with the number of PC Characters entering. The enemies you will be facing, are the remnants of the defunct Amegakure Torture Labs.
