The man looked confused at Shana question. "It is a horse my lady." The Embrie bowed his head, as if the 'magical' beast was not to her standards. "Please forgive me. It was the horses I was provided to give to you."


Gaul agreed with Paqu about the knives. Alot of people tried to take his life while on patrol always had something of a shank. Non of them were very good quality, but they sure tried their luck all the same.

The embrie looked at the wolf and noticeably shrank back a bit to the large beast as she started into him. The wolf didn't act any differn't then she might have around other such steeds. But these horses certainly felt like the Jaal creations that sometimes wondered around with their owners in Chel or more now Raven.


The embrie looked to Asiliy. "They have been with us as long as our history has recorded it... They watch over us and guide us through our troubles. They are our gods."




It became apparent to the group that this temple wasn't all that peaceful and humble as Dorge or the others, made everything appear. Young apprentices practiced in large groups on the clean parade grounds. Kicking, punching, and chopping. They did it all in cue with the other and made everything appear to be a like a dance.

Then there were the posts father away from the grounds... they were in clear view to a balcony at one of golden capped towers. Gaul saw similar things in one of the more extreme sides of the Kyorl sects. A lashing post. Now Gaul just had to figure out if it was for devotion or punishment.

Shana shrugged, these people clearly believed that these animals were normal, no point getting agitated for now. She felt it should have some sort of ability unknown to her, but it was mundane enough to these people that it went without mention. Nevermind, I thank you for the loan sir. Much appreciated.

Shana ground her teeth, these gods of theirs were ancient ones, apparently. Millennia old elves were something one shouldn't trifle with. Their powers were the stuff of nightmares and butting heads with them was akin to running face first into landslide. We best tread carefully around them boss. They sound like the sort who don't take small slights laying down. Asilly seems the type to know noble manners, letting her talk to them is for the best.

Paqu would mount his wolf and ride with the others, looking at the strange horses. He would ride along slowly as he looked at the training monks. "Saw something like this when I went to Nuqrath. Their dialect sounds like a drunk with a mouthful of sand trying to sing so I couldn't understand a word of what clan they were." He would keep riding on, nodding to Shana, "Aye, sounds like a plan. Don't antagonize the goblins."

It seem of a pattern she has seen many times as they made there way to the temple and of hearing the monks speak of this dark elfs that live here and hearing them call then gods it not the first time she come upon a location such as this a dark elf or light elf that had survive the fall but did not go underground. They would find a group of human's or other races and rule over them ether as a tyrant or a hard but just ruler but this in this temple are a different sort since they were the ones that caused her mother resurce to fail that could have had a chance of stopping the fall from happning. "Look if you will everone stay outside here of the temple I go alone to talk to this dark elfs..... if anything happen well run." She said to her group for a lot of problems are about to happen and ether it will result in a lot of people getting hurt or the dark elf leaving in pieces

The ride over to the Temple's stables was a close one. Gaul could have guessed it was built with that in mind, so the visitor's coming to this palace/temple of worship in all of its glory. "They do seem to be those types... I'm starting to wish I found some line of work that didn't get involved with them anymore."

He had his fill when they took the fight to the Nids and honestly wanted to be as far away from politics as possible... but it seemed destiny always wanted to drag him back down. "You can't go in there alone." Gaul said as he dismounted his black horse as they arrived at the stables.

Gaul probably wasn't the only one to notice that the golden eyed horses didn't stay here. Yaks and other types of mountain ponies seemed to mostly kept here.



The sight of the large wolf, certainly caused a stir in the beast of burden and the bald headed stable hands alike.

"Lady Asiliy. If you please.. I can escort you to the main chambers while your loyal cohorts can get comfortable. We shall see to you that your housing is better then the hutt we stayed at in the village." The robbed Monk that escorted them waved for the great courtesans to follow him, while Paqu, Shana, and Gaul seemed to have their own escort waiting to take their mounts.

Shana gaveba brief sigh Yeah, I guess I wouldn't be doing my job If I let you walk into dangerous places alone. Very well, I'll join you lady Asilly. She bowed her head and stood at Asilly's side when she dismounted her wolf.

Paqu would dismount Sasha just before entering the stables, walking in with her and putting her in an open stall. He would pat her side before she laid down in the stable, noticing that there was potential meals nearby. "Behave girl." The Wolf would rest her head and close her eyes, feigning sleep as her rider walked out. He would follow the others, "There's no fuckng way I'm staying out here to get my throat slit, if it's coming to that." he said careful to say it so it was only heard by the group. He would stay in his 'escort' formation, the same distance away from Asilly as Gaul was, mirroring him even if his armor wasn't the same.

Asilly would follow the monk after getting off her horse looking back at the other but only letting out a sign when they were coming with her she did not want them to get cough in the middle of this but she would turn her attention to the monk. "I have to ask this dark elf when they came here what did they bring was it just the cloths on there back or books and resurce materials?" She asked then as she was lead to the main chamber of this place to speak to the dark elf anger slightly coming off of her.

Gaul felt Paqu's problems. He worried about what might be lurking around this place... everything seemed to be falling into place a little too fast for his liking. Would they be used for a power play? Pawns to a tipping point... or were they afraid of the change someone like Asiliy could bring to this place.


The monk looked up at Asiliy and blinked. "My lords have always been here my lady. The Temple you see before you has always been here." He looked genuinely confused by the comment, "Please come with me." He waved his hand for the drowlath woman to follow.


Gaul motioned for Shana to go with Asiliy. As it would probably be less of an issue, if only the women go and visit the ruling class of dark elves here. Old dark elf culture was really unkind to most men. He had some serious doubts that they lost that to the isolation.

That left Paqu and him to fend for themselves as they were also ushered away. The man leading them down the halls showed them that this place was built with tall fae creatures in mind first and the little goblins second. The rooms Gaul and Paqu shared at least gave them separate beds.


But for the ladies. The main entrance was as grand as any Illharess could afford. Lush carpets, colorful birds of paradise, and marble stone walls so polished one could see their reflection. At the end of this hall stood the grand masters themselves. Three dark elf figures stood tall, their eye's staring at Asiliy and Shana as they approached. "I never had thought many of our race have survived the collapse... But I guess if anyone could do it, it was your family." Queen Dasyra said as she folded her arms.

Shana traveled with Asilly towards the leadership with a firm grip on her blade. She felt very uneasy with being in the presence of ancient ones. She doubted that she could do much besides die if she displeased them. Shana's frayed nerves ached at her without end, she needed to break up the tension.Be real careful, yeah? Have you ever spoken to royal before?

When they entered the main courtyard of the ancient ones, Shana felt herself being over awed by the splendor all around her. This was a royal family, sure as sure, and she could tell that they held themselves in VERY high esteem. When she finally caught eye of the dark elf leaders, she was taken aback by their size. She had heard they were tall, but even Ebinoth and Idra'nel were smaller than them. Being dwarfed even more than when she was around her sibliglngs didn't make this meeting any less intimidating on her.

Shana didn't know much about noble etiquite, but she knew how to take a knee. She knelt before them and gestured to Asilly I thank you for this time in your presence, your lordships. Before you is the leader of our expedition, lady Asilly.

Paqu sighed as he got into the room with Gual, pacing around anxiously. "I don't FUCKING like this." he said still pacing around. He looked like a caged wolf pacing around, looking for a way out. He tried to take his mind off of it, examining the room now, looking at the beds, "Sharess' tits. I've seen smaller orgey beds in the Dome."

Asilly looked at Dasyra her anger was gone for the moment as she would step a little bit closer to the three of them as shw would then speak up as she takes notice of Shana but would turn back her attention to Dasyra. "Of course we survived my mother had a plan for are race to survive and thrive but things have change..... and I havw to ask how did you get here and survive those moments.
..." She says as she would step closure to were she is all but a few feet from her. "And we're my mother resurce the one you took before everthing went to hel and just to tell my mother is dead she was mudered.: she says to them.

The room was bigger then Gaul had thought and if the tall ceilings were not a telling sign, the painted pictures and memorials along the walls and roofs told them everything about who was really in charge of this place. But he never saw an armed man or woman in these halls... Just the humble looking monks and their troops of students.

Gaul at least kept his cool as Paqu looked like a wolf waiting for his turn to be put down. Not that his pacing wasn't justified, as the windows were barred and the only way out was the entrance they came into the suite. "Calm down, I don't need you freakout on me just yet.. They might just let us out just yet... They didn't seem so eager to disarm us." He wouldn't allow himself to be disarmed, nor could he think of a way to convince someone like Paqu to do so either.

Not without Asiliy's empathy that is.



It was hard reading these very old elves. They seemed interested in Asiliy and almost nothing else in the room. They didn't spare the glance towards Shana and the respect she showed to them. But it was probably the best she could hope for... catching their attention probably wasn't the best of ideas.

"So I see." Said Queen Dasyra as Asiliy was introduced. "But was your mothers plan to give birth to sickly pale skinned males, and blackened skinned women. I'm not impressed... but I did not expect to see you nor your late mother. The cataclysm.. So your arrival has caught my attention and so here I am. Why have you come?"

It seemed the Queen wasn't normally in the grand temple and she seemed to have no taste for it with the tone of her voice.

Shana stood up and kept silent, the imperious voices of the highborn grated at her nerves. Asilly held herself up well before them, she could handle the talking.

"You'll bloody know when I 'freak out'." Paqu would say as calm as he could. He kept pacing around the room before he punched a wall, "For fucks sake! I know the old customs were a lot more harsh towards men then they are now. Sharess' tits I wish Myr'inil were alive and with us now. She can spot trouble from a mile away." He let out a growl before he stopped pacing, starting to take notice of the murals, trying to distract himself with them as he studied the paintings.
