I am reminded that we should make it a priority to purchase these things once we hit up the first city we see

1) Sealing stones
2) summoning gems
3) foci of missing elements

and hire some professional instructors to come with us (summoning, sealing, additional MS training)

I would like get a nether combat expert, preferably a Duskian. A Kyorl wouldn't really fit because of our views on "purity", utter ignorance of Sharess and a few other things.

Chances of us finding much less hiring an MS instructor willing to come to the surface is slim. A Duskian even more so since they're all so busy fighting Kyorls and reclaiming their home territory. If we want to learn summoning, our best bet the old fashion way, trial and error. Anjhi took the time to copy some notes on traditional summoning back during her Orthobae days. I suggest we go through her old notes, may not be much but it's a start.

For anti-nether combat instructor, on the surface, our best bet is either Ys or Machike, free but sponsored by Snad and Sargh respectively. In my opinion, Machike is not the best option due to the possibility of the Sarghs pressing us into their service to fight their wars. Ys is a free colony but is sponsored by Snad, and she's a whole nother can of worms. In-game, Ys is probably the better choice to find an nether combat teacher, meta wise, there's a chance we attract Sharen and Nid attention.

Duskians are in Nuqrah'shareh XD And finding an MS instructor in an established surface civilization is not hard...

Lets keep an open mind here, and keep metagaming out of our decisions as much as possible. Machike is an option, but the Sarghs left us on a sour note and last I checked they think we are allied with the Sharens--we can still repair relations if we must. Ys is a perfectly fine alternative. It's 1000x better than a dinky Nal outpost; it's closer to a major underworld city than any of the other options (which means stronger trade options), and full of Chelian refugees we can interact with again after how many years of seeing nothing but Nalsarkoths

I think you got Duskian confused with the Dutan'vir there Goblin. Duskians are from Nuqrah'shareh, a group that is politically neutral group similar to the Kyorls in that they hate the nether with a passion and have sealing arts: http://wiki.drowtales.com/index.php/Dusk [EDIT] - As, Dalvy! Dalvy! beat me to that, heh. Not ganging up on ya here Goblin. ;)

However, the point is still the same, getting someone to train us in such things is gonna be very hard if not impossible so far in the game unless some other opportunities open to us in game.

Boy I am having some duuur moments today... ^^;

It is ambitious to find someone out here in the wilderness, but it's worth a shot. Anjhi, for all her short time at Orthorbbae, is still a newbie in terms of skill. I think it would serve her and the clan's specialists to find someone to hire and continue the collective training.

Actually we have a relic that is a sealing gem..that is highly unstable that contains nether. If you want to train sealing. This is the best bet we got. Besides we need to transfer the nether into another safer container and then not have to deal with said demon once that relic containment breaks for good.
A survivalist should not be a pessimist, he should always be positive, happy and enjoying life more than anyone else because he understands that each minute of peace we have is precious and unique, and he never takes it for granted.

But Anjhi still has some knowledge and skills with summoning, that's better then nothing and at least we have something to go on. Learn as much as Anjhi can teach while we search for a real expert.

P.S. I don't keep track with the dozens of clans and too lazy to fact check. (DON'T JUDGE ME!! *upset* , JK :P )

We could try that... do we know how to use it? What happens if the gem shatters, since it's unstable? I think we should use that as "advanced" training, for in case it shatters and we need to reseal the nether

Answer to your first question, no we do not; said relic is a staff with a broken gem on the top. Second question, nether will be release or even a demon maybe if it shatters and all hell breaks loose. I remember when we first found it, someone tried to chuck it into the lake. It was the first time we dealt with something nether related and we were all nervous about it. So we had it locked up in an underground vault to be dealt with at a later time.

Well then...

Let's not consider using that relic until we are skilled enough to handle it. Don't want to create a disaster in the middle of the colony.

We did found a second relic along with the damaged nether staff, a mana bracelet that "unleashes tremendous amount of power" or something like that, vague description given by the GM (Thalar at the time). We're not sure how it unleashes said power as we never tested it, reason why we didn't is because it drains a lot of mana from the user; so much that it would most likely kill the user. And since we had a poor mana environment back then, we were warned not to use the bracelet unless you were willing to die just to find out what the bracelet does. We also had this relic store in the vault for later studies or when our colony built up sufficient a mana pool. Though some did advocate we take the risk and test out the bracelet, funny enough, those same people wanted others to take the risk. So now that that's brought, we can test out the bracelet once we return home, best that a MS with a large mana reserve be the one to take the bracelet for a spin.

Actually that relic bracelet will not kill the user if said user is in a mana rich environment. Our current home city mana environment is rich enough to ensure that the user of such a relic would not die. Of course, the problem then would be to determine a zone where the test would be made to then determine how much mana is expended on said zone to determine how much the rate of destruction this relic unleashes. I know someone who is willing to do such a test and won't mind if she loses her character.

Is that someone a mana spec? cause otherwise it wouldn't matter; test might fail with an untrained before any info could be yielded from it
