Scathe was following near Gorgon and behind them Quickchange, all in their alternate modes as they trundled through into the city. As they did it was not a city like any normal ones, there were no skyscrapers, the roads were broken and only partial and the houses were small little dwellings. There were no obvious automobiles or street lighting, only old wooden lantern holders outside the dwellings.
With Gorgon leading the way some of the others followed on foot, Triton, Rampart and Roadranger, who had now released his weapon just incase, showing for the first time a maybe more serious side. They dscanned for life forms, but so far, nothing...
++ INTERNAL WARNING ++
WARNING! STASIS LOCK IN 2.5 MEGA-CYCLES! REVERT TO ALTERNATE MODE!
Gorgon scanned the cityscape. The only readings he was getting was from his fellow Destrons. Gorgon rotated his turret and looked down all the side streets he passed. He slowed when he came to a crossroads. First he looked straight ahead, then to the left, then to the right. He then rotated his turret and looked behind him at the other Destrons.
Rampart transformed to his Cybertronian mode as the group of Destrons reached a pass that split into two different directions. One path broke off towards a dense forest, the other towards a mountainous area. "There!", growled Triton, "That mountanous region to the rest will be perfect for our ambush!" and with that Triton finally transformed into his super tank mode.
Gorgon acknowledged and turned his turret to the forward position as he set off, making his way towards the mountain area. Gorgon knew that from up there, they would have the advantage, the Cybertrons wouldn't be able to shoot back. Gorgon looked over at the dense forest. He wasn't worried that the Cybertrons would hide there, as he and the other Destrons would obliterate it if they needed to.
Rage heard the commanding orders, he quickly but quietly rode his way up to the side of the mountain. He thought that the Cybertronians would have no chance because they simply weren't sophisticated enough to handle the raw power of the Destrons.
"So, Boss, I forgot to tell you this but I just found this out on a scan check, I know a way where we can get stronger, you see if we transform back to our bot mode we will change, we'll change into a beast version to evolve ourselves to better our survival on this planet, but not only that but we will also gain much more strength and power with this ' "upgrade" '. Our physical appearance will change but we will remain mentally the same, personally I think it would be for the better because we can more easily defeat the Cybertronians and we will be able to rule this planet forever without staying in our alt. mode for a long period of time."
Rage transformed back to his bot mode while saying this. He walked towards Triton,
"What do ya think Boss?"
Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen ------------------------------------------- ! Out In Theaters Now !
"An excellent idea Rage", replied Triton, "But not until we get to the cover of the mountains, then, those that wish too may"
Rampart scoffed and thought to himself, "Hmmph, Triton will never give up his alternate mode! If there is animal or wild creatures on this planet then I'll take the most wildest savage beast this planet has and then we'll see who's giving the orders!!
With Scathe, Quickchange and road Ranger in tow, they continued to follow the broken path away from the small dwellings of the village and the forest to their far side and began their journey towards the mountains...
Reaper kicked open the door to his escape pod. It had jammed on landing and needed a good deal of effort to open. When he stepped out, he saw that he was on the edge of a forest. Nearby was an old abandoned city. High above, there were a number of white birds flying. Reaper decided that it would be easier to go for the city. At least there, if he got a call from the other Cybertrons, he would be able to pick out a landmark that would be easy to spot. If he went deeper into the forest, he could well end up getting lost.
Reaper felt a wash of energy crackle over his armour. He cursed to himself. He knew that could only mean one thing. High levels of Energon. Reaper decided that he would need a new disguise while on this planet. He looked up at the birds flying over head. One of them would make a good alt mode. He waited for one to fly near enough for him to scan it. Once the scan was complete, he automatically transformed into his new Beast mode.
Reaper transformed back into his robot mode and made his way clear of the trees before transforming again and taking flight. Reaper close up above the cityscape. It was a mess, it looked like there had been nothing there for a long time. Reaper landed on one of the taller buildings and folded his wings behind his back. He looked around the area for any sign of his fellow Cybertrons.
For Reaper, even the tallest building in the small city was only a substantial enough to get a limited view across the continent, as the buildings weren't all enough, this being the largest.
To one side the dense forest blacked his view off from seeing any further back, but a thin trail of smoke trickled from the middle of the forest, like wise to his west from another location but which was far away in the distance, barely visible On the outskirts of the forest he thought he saw more trails but, couldn't be sure. Moving right around in his alternate mode he spotted a river in the distance and could clearly see smoke and a visible disturbance.
It was the nearest to him, or he could travel a little further and head for the smoke in the forest, but had to calculate for the wind now picking up and the time it would take to get to that point in the forest compared to the river not so far away..
Reaper took off again. He climbed higher to try and get a better view of the area. After circling the ruined city, Reaper saw that the trail of smoke by the river was much closer than the others. Reaper flew over towards the river and began following it, hoping that there was a Cybertron at the end of the trail, and that whoever it was would be alright.
OOC: Please wait until tomorrow then continue in the Moon River thread, this will have allow plenty of time to have flown there, (Given you have wings now and it would take longer than whatever Cybertronian mode you had.)
