(Max Characters per player is two [NPCs don't count but they can't be part of the party]. A short description and 'gear up' would be nice with your first post [If you can RP it that's great, if not a short bio is fine]. There is a chance to get gear from the Town before the 2nd chapter, as well as to swap out characters, or join/leave easily. PVE [if any] will be simple, roll if you want to, don't need to)

Memories


The Airship slowly circled around the small Nal'Sarkoth mining colony named 'Slag Town'. Workers in the open pit mine that doubled as the dock for airships were scrambling to clear the landing area of a slow moving mining golem and it's heavy load of ore, a red flag raised at the tower next to it to let the ship know they weren't ready. The tallest buildings in town were 4 stories high, and people were gathering on roofs and balconies to gawk at the incoming airship. The stone buildings were made from the rock that was brought up from the deeper mines and slag from the foundries. Whatever wasn't stone was crammed with tiny farms, even rooftops had a few gardens in them. The golem cleared the final ramp to get out of the mine and trudged along to the foundry, as a feral scrambled up the flagpole to remove the red flag and replace it with a green one, clearing the Airship for landing.

Labran'che kneeled on the floor of the cabin he shared on the airship. The blue eyed Ssu frowned as he looked at the eight Vloz'ress masks he had laid out on the floor. He exhaled and started picking them up, putting them in his pack one at a time, "Jor'ah." a goofy looking mask with a W shaped mouth slit and crescent shaped eyes. "Imas'hin." A large mask that was more like a full face helmet, a pair of big puffy lips puckered up to a kiss carved into the face, screen covering the eyes. He picked up a pair of masks now, an ear to ear grin carved in one, the other had a frown and teardrops carved in it. "Phar'ah and Phar'is...or was it Phar'is and Phar'ah?" He packed them away, "That's right, they liked to switch a lot." He picked up another one, a smiling mouth full of needle like teeth with a tongue hanging out the side. "Ran'rah," he'd tuck it away, then he'd pick up the mask that was in the center. Black colored steel, a realistic feminine face, pert lips drawn up in a slight smile, an eye mask carved in the upper half of the face. The Ssu would stroke the mask's cheek softly, as a tear ran down his own, "Ari'yana..." There'd be a knock on the door, "Oi, lad, ya ready yet?" "Just about." "Hurry it up, were coming in for a landing." Che would put the mask in his pack before picking up the other two masks, the one he normally wore, the Insane Grin. The other mask was Pure Anger, his old mask, a snarling face with a bare slit for the mouth and eyes. He tucked Anger into his pack and tucked Grin in his cloak. He'd put his pack on and walk out of the room.

Paqu'ette stood in the hallway the ship, leaning on his spear as he waited for his Nephew to come out of the room. He wore old Sarghress heavy armor that was painted black with the old Dutan'vir Stag outline painted on his chestplate. A pack stuffed with raider gear was on his back, covered with a large heater shield. He ran his armored fingers through his mullet, a bare hint of red dye in his light blond hair. "I should really cut this fucking mess." The door would open and Che stepped out, slightly taller than his more muscular and imposing uncle. "I need to talk to you about having a Go Bag packed and ready boy. I know ye don't got any equipment other than them chains and that cleaver. That and yer costumes." Che would bend down and pull a folding sickle out of his boot, "Forgot one. 'Sides, what's wrong with my chains?" He stuck it back in his boots, "Well, maybe we can get ya properly kitted out when we get into the town. The Lady offered to pay us whatever we wanted for that book of yers." He'd tap his armor with the shaft of his spear, "And I could use something that's not 17 years old." The pair of Ssus would walk down the hall.

Asilly was within her room packing up a large pack with a variety of items several books and notes along with a few clothing for later changing if need be within the room sitting at the table within the room is Anna waiting for her mother to get done. "So could you tell me why we have to go to this place? Ever since you spent some time with that che person you seem a little more worried then normal." Anna said to her as she get up and heads for the door. "Let just say some thing have change..... and there someone here I am to meet someone that by what che has told is dead and he did help me get something that belong to my mother before she was killed...." She tell her as she get done packing and head out the door with her going down the hallway to the exit to were she pass che and paqu not wishing to waste time she keep on walking seeing to talk to then later once they get into town.

Mae strapped on the last few bits of her well used, but solid and strong white Sarghress armor. Slipping on her belt, where her sword and dueling knife waited for action. The half breed hoisted up her pack, and marched down the hallways of the air ship. To join up with the rest. Finding Paqu and his degenerate ex Volz nephew Che, at the main entrance. The smaller but solidly built woman said. "What book are we looking for again?"


The ex Kyorl was Sharpening his spear one last time as he was listening to his Mae and daughter. He was last of them to leave the air ship that was meant to go on this little trip. Bringing up the rear, his black armor was reminiscent of his old templar style armor, if just a bit lighter like the Sarghress types. His sallet helmet placed on his head while his current trusty sword waited at his hip.

He lifted the visor up watching their surroundings. Everything seemed quite.

Paqu was about to say something when he noticed Asilly, but she was gone before he uttered a word. When Mae came up behind them he'd turn and start to salute out of reflex. "Ma'a-...Miss Mae? Forgot you were on board." "We already got the book," Che said flatly, "You're getting paid to protect Mistress Asilly." Paqu raised an eyebrow, "And I'm here to kill the person she's gonna meet with in a few days." Che would follow Asilly, no doubt heading for the town's Inn. Paqu looked to Mae, "Mistress now?" He shook his head, "Boy's been getting weird and serious lately. But aye, that's the job, protect the woman from anyone trying to kill her." Paqu would smile a little when Gaul came over, fully armored. "Did the boy convince you to come along or was it the woman?" he'd clap Gual on the shoulder, "I'm sure your daughters and Mae've's friend will be alright without us. Welcome to the group, Brother." He'd start walking down the ramp, past dockworkers that were unloading supplies from the ship. "Let's get us some real food."

Asilly would keep walking until she had gotten off the ramp and towards the edge of the colony getting a good look of the place before she turn and sees that che has follow her and Anna. "You know I was going to get you later...... look I need you to keep a eye on Anna go to the others if you like I going to get a good layout of the place and were the inn is to this place." Anna would look to her mother then to Che her mother has been a bit more on edge of late been in her room for hours on end during this trip and along with this she has been studying that book she had gotten during the rest of this trip. "Are you sure mother I don't like the idea of you moving around this city alone I sure che would not mind to go with you." Asilly let out a sign then speaks up. "Anna I be fine do as I say right know all are live are at stake." After she says this she head off into the town.

"Asiliy huh... Right, anyone in particular we should be keeping an eye out for?" The half breed said, as she adjusted something on herself to fit more comfortably. Probably had a little too much to drink last night during the flight. "And just who the hell are you going to kill?"

Mae seemed wholly indifferent to the exact details. But did take a note about how Che was treating this.


When the tall ada eyed male came over. He watched Asiliy, Che and Anna move ahead of them. "Asiliy's asked me." Gaul said joining his duter friend side, and the half breed Mae's side aswell. "If I needed to be everywhere my children were, I'd just lock them in their room and keep them unhappy." He couldn't physically be everywhere at once. And his children would grow up and do their own thing without him being there.

"Have you been here before for food." Gaul asked, and Mae just shrugged. "Not me, all human food has something going for it."

Che didn't answer Mae as he came up to Anna and Asilly, he paused and was hesitant at first. He wanted to stay by her side or at least have Paqu standing next to her and sneering at anyone looking at her wrong. "Yes Mistress." was his response and he looked to Anna. Hesitating again, "I...I could use some new armor and maybe a weapon or two. Your mother promised that she would pay for new equipment, could you help me with that, please?" He'd watch nervously as Asilly headed off. Muttering, "She should at least have Uncle escorting her. He loves that sort of shit and he'd only be getting drunk otherwise."

"Boy's been tight lipped about that. Keeps claiming whoever it is is already dead." Paqu would shrug. "Nidra'chall types, if either of them are to be believed." He wrapped both arms around his comrades, "Whatever they have here will be better than that fancy Val junk we've been eating on the ship. No offense to Vals, but that shit's all presentation. Give me a good thick ale, a loaf of bread, and a seared hunk of meat. And aye, surfacer food is simple and filling. I must have eaten at least two pounds of those creamed kirsu eggs and crackers last night at the party and I was still hungry." He'd grab his spear again and walk with his companions towards the inn. "Grey Squad, advance!"

Anna watches as her mother dissappear after walking around a group of building she let out a sign to were she hears che talking to her about a promise that asilly has made with her to get him some new gear. "Sure mother gave me a good amount of money this morning I guessing this is why to get you something new from this place...... also I do have a question for you." She says as she crosses her arms and speaks up hoping to get some answer about were her mother got that book. "Lately once my mother got that book she has been studying it for days until we got here I even found her past out at are room table after staying up for a good 43 hours...... I also took a little look at it my self and the first page I land on is about the nether realm and demons but the information within is beyond anything I seen before. It had information that on demons that I could only assume ether came from a Vloz or someone talking to a Vel'akar...... then the there the next one what this about curing the taint?" She asked him after she got done what ever he and her mother did on there last stop it has put them in a whole new world of trouble.

"Its always those types with her. So much for them being dead in their own war." Mae grumbled as she felt like she was getting underpaid for tangling with them so damn much as of late. The half breed Mae made a nose that was similar to a cat that didn't want to be hugged, but didn't do anything about it either really.

"Val food and surface food will pretty much be the same thing. Or at least over lap seriously." Gaul said as he continued on and followed behind Paqu's lead into the inn. The patrons gave them odd looks, but no one seemed to want to cause the well armored, and armed elves any serious trouble as they bowed their head back into their own business.

Che looked at Anna, then tried avoiding eye contact, "She said the book was her mother's, she gave it to my old Summoner in the Vloz'ress, Ari'yana. They were in contact or something trying to find a cure for the taint, your mom mentioned something about her mother wanting to go to wherever Sharess went by..." he sighed as he tried to remember the details, "By like, detaching your aura or something and passing through a gate to the other side." He quickly looked up and made eye contact with Anna, "She said she wasn't even gonna try that madness." He hesitated, "But she was gonna try curing the taint. Ari'yana got in contact with her recently, she wasn't tainted and said she found the cure." Anger started to well up within the Ssu, "Except Ari'yana died right in front of me 20..30, I don't even remember how many years ago now." He pulled the mask out of his pack and showed it to her. "The reason why I'm not on the boat spanking a Val's ass is because the Real Ari'yana would want the taint cured. And this faker needs to die, slowly. Slower than the Cunt who killed my mother and Ari'yana." Che would try to calm himself down, "Can...can we go shopping now?" The former Vloz was almost like a child at this point.

Paqu would chuckle with the 'growl' from Mae at being hugged, "As I said, presentation." He'd look around the Inn with a smile on his face, grabbing a table near the bar with enough seats to accommodate Anna, Che, and Asilly if they showed up. A server came by, "Bring me a glass and a keg of ale...actually make it a pitcher." he sighed, "Promised the boy I'd cut down. And what have ye got ta eat in these parts?"

Anna looks at him explaining the events and why they were here and what her mother is doing her eyes go wide after hearing about the idea that her mother have a way to find the goddess...... "to go were the goddess went..... that is madness so your friend ari'yana is dead yet someone is using her name? And you plan on killing this imposter I see...... and then there the curing of the taint you do know that if she can cure the taint that a lot of people are going to agree with it but other will want to kill us all......" she starts to walk after hearing if they could go get some new gear and weapons. "Also who not to say there people here that already want to kill us but waiting for the right moment...... we need to find my mother after shopping then I guess we start making plans to run for are lives." She tell him at this point fear has taking her over for there are group of people who would literally kill for this information or just because it about demons the nids, black suns, or even the Kyorl.

Mae sat down in the chair and leaned back. "Shouldn't we be with them if were protecting them?" It was a little late to ask that particular question now as she was sitting down, but she was curious why the other three wondered off without them.

The server told them it was a borsch with a loaf of bread. "I'll take a bowel and two loafs of bread." The ex Kyorl said, "And a cup of Ale... I think a keg is a little early for me."

"Me too. A bowl and some bread." Mae said as she also ordered a drink similar to Paqu's size. "Since when did you start cutting back, the cutting. Last I heard you say that you killed the keg." Its not like the water here was safe to drink by comparison.

"And her looks, other than the eyes and not being tainted she described Ari'yana..." He clenched his fists, "I know...she knows. The Nids don't want a cure because then they can't control the tainted, the Kyorls don't want a cure because they have sticks up their asses. They'd probably burn us all for Heresy just because of that passage in the book about being able to do what Sharess did and bring her back. If anyone can do what their savior did she's not really a goddess now is she?" He would walk to an outfitter's store for relic hunters, pulling his hood down so he would look less Vloz like. The Vloz looked lost in the shop, "Uncle Paqu usually does this kind of thing...Don't know how I keep losing the stuff he buys for me." He'd look at the weapons first, finding a small one handed ax and picking it up, giving it a few swing. "Can I help you?" a shopkeeper almost materialized out of nowhere. "Uh...yeah, just not sure what I need help with." "First time relic hunting?" "No, first time bodyguarding where the client is paying the tab." The female shopkeeper smiled, "I see, well lets start you off on protection." "Speaking of which, do you have any sealing stones?" "I'm sorry?" "Sealing stones, for demons. Client's real paranoid about that." he'd get closer to the shop keeper and point to Anna, "Some kind of traumatic experience as a kid. Her last Sealer split from the group in the last town, but hey, that's how I got the job, thank Goddess." He held up his arm and pulled his sleeves down to expose a small sealing stone hanging from a strap on his wrist. "Never leave home without it, but she thinks it might not be up to the job of protecting her." pointing to Anna again. "Hmm, not much demand for them anymore but I do have a few in the basement for emergencies. As for more, tangible protection..." She'd lead them to a sets of display armor, "Locally crafted, we can even direct you to the smith who can do a proper fitting for a discount." "I prefer cloth or light armor personally. Hiding behind Templars and the like, but it is the Lady's decision after all." He'd turn to Anna, "She should choose."

"I'll have the same, two breads and a bowl." He'd stretch out on the chair, "We probably should, figured she'd come straight here. Bit surprised she ran off without us, but I guess the boy's not the only one acting weird." He'd sigh, "Me and the the boy don't mix too well when I'm drunk. I don't want to drive him away so I told him I'd cut down, been mostly keeping that promise." He'd fill his glass and take a few sips, "And I could still kill that keg, maybe his friend too, if I felt like it." he said with a smile and a foamy mustache.

She listen to him about who would not want the cute the nids for sure with out the taint they have no way of controlling large groups since there is a way to cure themselves. And the Kyorl are to deep into there beliefs and it would true they would burn us all if they found out about the cure and especially about the idea of going and find the goddess it would shatter there whole world. She keeps this thoughts to herself as she walk with him into the shop as he browse around she stand near the exit letting him get what he need as she thinks about what to do after here. However her thoughts are broken when che talks to her about what he should choose she let out a sign as she speaks up. "I say it whatever you wise to choose what be best for you to use i got the money to pay for it..... also I think will be need those sealing stones how many do you have dear?" She asked the shopkeeper for if the nids do find then that almost means nether demons will also be showing up.

"Yeah I have noticed that between you two." Mae said as she remembered once seeing Paqu with a meat cleaver stuck over an apparent misunderstanding. The half breed took a swig of the human ale or what ever they served up here, it wasn't the best shes had. But Mae was never one to complain when grog was the drink of choice in the underground.

Not by taste mind you. It was just dirt cheap.


Gaul also took a modest drink of the ale. " Its not like Asiliy doesn't do something like this without an escort all the time. She's very 'old' as she likes to tell me. I'm sure if she was expecting trouble here, she would have asked for us to come." As the food was served up, the bread was a darker more black looking thing. But it wasn't burnt tho, as Mae found out as she peeled a peice apart and dipped it in her soup.
