Complete the chunin exam!
Malk and Zeke are ready for the chunin exams. The exam is sprung on them when they are not suspecting.
Malk and Zeke wake up in a dark room. They call out and recognize each other's voices. Malkeru channels chakra into his sword and is able to weakly illuminate the area around them, enabling Zeke to find his way to him. They find torches along the wall of the room and use those, then find their way to the door. They enter an illuminated corridor and start to approach the door at the end, but they find that no matter what they do they get no closer to the door. They recognized it as some form of genjutsu, but individual attempts at breaking it failed, though did weaken the illusion somewhat. After trying to hit the genjutsu with some ninjutsu of their own, they finally flared their chakra in unison to break the genjutsu. They were then faced with a pit of lava between them and the next door and a plaque giving them some advice for the next portion. Malkeru entered the pit of lava, much to Zeke's consternation, and appeared to be consumed by it. Zeke followed and found his friend completely unhurt.
They opened the door and entered the next room, which appeared to be a chessboard with blue and red tiles, and another plaque with another puzzle. Malkeru decided this one was for Zeke to solve. The two sat around and discussed it for some time, then Zeke decided to try and cross the tiles, but he sustained heavy injuries to his feet. Malkeru then decided to channel chakra to his feet and walk on the walls, bypassing the tiles entirely. Zeke followed suit and then Malkeru carried him into the next room, which was empty and had another riddle for them. This they solved by extinguishing all the torches.
The door to the next room opened into a blindingly bright room. When they entered, they were attacked by a bipedal stone beast. Malkeru was caught off guard and also laden down with Zeke, so the initial attack struck him. The two then faced off against the beast, which shrugged off physical attacks but was fairly susceptible to jutsu. Malkeru created an initial wound with a fireball, and then Zeke finished it off.
