  2. A Meeting with the Toy Maker Fox

    A Ship? “To be fair, I don’t believe in following a sole religion really.. I’m a researcher who happened down this path by coincidentally, but so far he seems to have my best interest.” Sugn turned back to face the lovely Duchess to see her scribbling something on parchment. “I don’t believe he want’s to impose on anyone’s plans, to be fair he is the one that told me to come here… I sought knowledge and power, now I live in an abandoned temple and you have come to me with the position to either contribute in your plot of world domination or I’d imagine parish if I stand in your way.” Though I don’t believe death is an option for me at this point. “By the way, when shall we begin this quest…” He stood blocking the entrance of the room wondering if Aurora had seen what was inside. "I believe time is an important resource and one not to waste."

  4. The Motley Crew

    Zafira took her empty bowl back to her tent. She entered, the dog followed her and lay down with a sleepy yawn on the comfortable blankets spread around. The muffled sound of Aiden and Ira talking drifting into the tent. "Oh no you don't!" Zafira scolded, "We have to pack up!" He ignored her and she pulled on a pair of brown leather pants and green shirt. She began stuffing the items in the tent into her pack. The dog refused to move off the blanket that he deemed was his. She tugged on it to no avail and he lay there laughing at her. She put her hands on her hips. "Fine!" She said, sitting down and brushing out her hair, "I'll just pack you up with the tent!" She finished brushing out her wild curls and tied them back with a leather thong with bells attached to the end. She didn't know why, but she liked them, they made her feel calm, like she was at home. It felt good to get out of her messy clothes, but she found that if she looked poorer than the thieves and pick pockets they left her well alone. She tossed her brush into the bag and, noticing the dog had shifted, grabbed the edge of the blanket and yanked. He rolled off it with a huff and she laughed at him while stuffing the blanket into the bag. "Serves you right!" She laughed. He barked at her. "Well Pardon me, My lord!" she said with a dramatic bow. He perked his ears up and made a huffing noise. "I am not calling you My Lord." She said putting on one of her knee high boots, "And I know that isn't your real name!" She went to put the other boot on her foot and he grabbed a hold of the toe, tugging on it. "Give it!" She commanded, "Give it!" He didn't, he continued to pull and tug and growl. Zafira gave one strong heave and he let go, causing her to tumble out of the tent, laughing at tricking her once again with the same ploy. She fell through the opening gap and tumbled quite gracefully, boot in hand. She glared at the tent for a moment before laughing at having been tricked again. The dog emerged, carrying the bag in his mouth and he put in on the ground next to her and slobbered on her face with a wet lick. "Alright -" She conceded, putting on her other boot, "I'll call you My Lord for now! But don't expect me to make the others do it." He barked happily and pranced away to Ira, sat next to him and wagged his tail. She rolled her eyes at him and made quick work of her tent, packing that away in her bag, hoping it didn't get lost. She crinkled her nose, it still smelled like fish. She noticed Ira's stuff scattered about, it was taking him twice as long as any of them to pack up his stuff. She sighed, how could a military man be so unorganized? She approached and began to help him pack his items, organizing them as she went, giving him a side long look and a wink. "At this rate - " She said with a cheeky grin, "The sun will be down before you have it all packed up, and we will have to take it all right back out again!" She grunted as she lifted his heavy helmet and looked into its dented, rough looking surface. It spoke of years of a hard life, she recalled hearing him say something about being on the losing side of a war while she was in her tent. She wasn't about to ask though, likely it was a sore subject for him. She watched him pack haphazardly for a moment before tossing the helmet into the bag. "Alright Gargoyles." She dusted off her hands, "Lead the way!"

  8. A Pirate's Life Ain't So Bad

    @ButAHumbleBard You're turn now. @Eclipse And I had asked this before, but got no response evidently. But are the Silver Swan's guns basically classic pirate-style gunpowder cannons? I don't know if you imagined them being something different like magictech cannons, or a more World War-era gun, or something else entirely. It's kind of important since gunpowder isn't reliable on Terrenus according to lore, and I would write out any post of mine in accordance if the guns are gunpowder-based. I know we're not on Terrenus's shore anymore, but we're still close enough that I think it counts.

    There is something quite amusing about how Ker can go from bragging about being a powerful, undead demon of sorts, to asking someone out for coffee and pie. XD
  10. Tavern of Legend: Season 2

    "That sounds like a great idea.", Rachel said promptly, genuinly thinking that travelling with somebody will make things easier(travelling somebody who doesn't want to ruin her life). "I want to find my friend more, my father, well... we'll see.",she grabbed her spellbook,lowkey hugging it with her arms. Rachel froze out of the sudden, she didn't know what to do."He's right, but...", she looked at the illusion, she somehow knew it was impossible for him to be here,"It's not like I am the top priority for him right now.", she thought."Stop it... now.", she had enough of this demon's schemes, even if he can read minds, he wasn't up to date with the events that happened in Rachel's life and that made Rachel think that the demon was a pathetically try-hard.As the illusion stopped, Rachel felt easy once again.

  14. Tavern of Legend: Season 2

    @Slatheok @Rolynight The demon looked toward Rachel, knowing how to scare her. "Allow me to give you an example. Let's say youreally sitting here and... would you mind looking at the door for me... ahem, as I was saying, let's say you're sitting here when suddenly..." A'rrazaah made Rachel see her father break down the doors and turn towards her, but he didn't move. "... Your father arrives. You don't want that now do you? This offer will greatly help avoid that." A'rrazaah's head turned to Slatheok as soon as she said the word, "mages", and the image that Rachel saw was gone. His eyes were filled with determination. This was the best news he's heard all day. His speech grew quicker in speed as he turned toward her. "MAGES?! What did they look like? We're they helpful? Did one if them wear green? Did one of them say his name was Trevor?" He stopped himself for a moment and calmed down. "Apologies, but this man, Trevor he's... an old friend... and I have unfinished business with him."
  15. Home [Martial Town]

    The home of Guin, a young adventurer living in Martial Town slums. A small middle floor studio apartment Guin has managed to repair or otherwise clean the run down apartment into a livable environment. Few in amenities it has a tub, an old mana impulse stove, a ice enchanted fridge and an old twin sized bed. For the occasional company she keeps a small table with three chairs in the center of the room. It is not heated, and while it has electricity it is far from reliable and frequently goes out. Guin enjoys being home, and can often be found winding down after an odd job or adventure. All in all it a simple home on the outskirts of Martial Town, a deeply dangerous area that rarely has visitors. Guin does not own this apartment, and instead rents it from a faceless multinational housing corporation - any defaulting on the rent means she is quickly evicted, for Martial Town has limited tenant protection laws. [OOC - This is a hub thread for my character Guin where I will roleplay her in between quests/jobs/adventures, it is open to visitors - if you'd like to interact with Guin at her home throw a knock on her door!]

A highly simplistic action the user pushes down on the lever, dropping a solid block and opening the breech of the rifle. Originally designed to allow excess mana to vent between shots during impulse fire this updated design now uses self contained Dreyse Mana Cartridges and instead allows the user access to the breech after dropping the block, allowing one to extract and insert another cartridge. Guin's own Granduer was bought for self defense, and while in relatively rough condition it functions with little need for maintenance. It fires a small, light recoiling .22 caliber, 30 gr. (1.9 g) round traveling at 2,300 ft/s (700 m/s) and impacting on the target with 322 ft·lbf (437 J) of force. It is hardly a powerful cartridge, and while certainly capable of killing it is more suited to killing small animals and other such targets. Guin carries the rifle with her at all times, slung over her back with enough slack to allow her to shoulder it from the sling. [Outfit] Guin only has a single set of clothes, a layered series of clothing designed both to keep her warm and protect her, at least to some extent. The base layer is a simple dark teal dress with a blue, white and yellow striped pattern at the bottom and black lace after that. Over the dress she wears black leather 'magitech bike' jacket, the thick leather and flexible armor at the elbows, shoulders and back giving her some stab and impact protection. Over top that she wears a loose footing dark blue overcoat, and over top that she wears a shoulder length hooded poncho made of merino wool, designed to protect her from rain. Finally over that she wears a patterned scarf. Her legs are covered by black leggings, and ankle high black adventurers boots cover her feet - a set of armored 'magitech bike' gloves cover her hands, allowing her to strike people with added force without fear of damaging her hands.
  20. The King's Feast [NS0]

    With the elite impaired, Dan decided it was safe to allow his crazy to show a little, to lessen the pressure, so to speak. Theoretically, it would also help, as Dan has learned that sudden changes disrupt an opponent's flow. The elite threw its feathers at him, and Dan Dodged them all, despite the small margin for error. When he looked back up at the elite, it was a little unnerved. All of a sudden, the kid's grin was widened to an unsettling degree, and his eyes were full of sadistic madness. It didnt want this psychotic child anywhere near it, and threw feather after feather at him to kill him. Dan evaded them, almost like he was dancing. He kept coming in at random points and slashing into the elite, his movements still so smooth it resembled another step in his 'dance'. Dan saw that he had thoroughly creeped the elite out, and dove at it, again catching it off guard, and slashing the upper portion of its head off. Dan turned to the last one, who held out both hands to him. "Hold! I know that fighting you is pointless. The last one is injured, you are untouchable, that one has a massive death shooting weapon, I concede. Just.... Make it fast." Dan thought. "I'll do you one better. I already got all the other pumpkin monsters as familiars. Lemme take you, and complete my collection. I'll let you live if you serve me as a companion and guardian." The elite responded instantly. "Yes! Agreed! Agreed!" The elite knelt. "I pledge myself to you, young master." Dan was happy now. He had one of all the pumpkin monsters now. That made him the Pumpkin King. Dan snickered. Leo would love to find this out. He saw the one Aveline was fighting, and briefly considered stealing the kill, but then he thought better of it. While he could, and probably could away with it, he had two friends here now, and he wasn't going to leave them behind for a kill steal.
  21. [Quest] The ever-crumbling palace

    Realizing that the gate in which they had all come from suddenly disappear in a moments notice. "My you were'nt kidding around I see, this place really does change around" he exclaimed That is when three massive doors suddenly appeared on another wall "wow, I suggest we take the western door yet I will not move until everyone else has displayed their door of interest, for we must stick as one!" He said with a proud voice then he stared at the rest of the group to hear their decision.

Cattlewrangler by trade Guin's father spent most of his time on the 'Life Preserve', grinding out an honest living while Guin's mother worked odd jobs when money was tight. Hardly a glamorous life, but one which any would envy if they could see the future. Life continued at this pattern for 9 years, until unrest struck Palgard - with it came opportunity, and despite himself Guin's father could not resist and ignorning the imploring of his wife and child he took to the streets with the rioters, hoping to carve out a better life for his family. Instead he found only death, like so many others snuffed out without a second glance - leaving his family to fend for itself. Some model of order followed when the military took hold, but without skills or wealth Guin and her mother were forced to the outskirts of the growing Martial Town. The nefarious borders proved soul crushing, and despite herself Guin's mother could not resist the temptations of the drugs on every corner - it did not take long for her to vanish, dead or worse and leaving ten year old Guin truly alone. Where many children would wilt, crumbling on themselves and wilting Guin instead began to struggle - working any odd job she could get, doing her best to pay her rent on time, fill her stomach and even buying an old rifle to defend herself. This resilience marks all of Guin's young life, and while the last two years have been hard the cute, quiet flower remains - no matter how dirty the swamp gets.
  24. Magically Captive

    Zenih took the plate, rinsing it and then drying it with a rag before putting it away. "They all seem nice enough, and I think your dad is warming up to me" he said, giving a smile, "It was nice.... To eat a meal like that. You have a great family." Then he chuckled, "What'd you think? Do I make a believable healer?" He asked with a grin
  25. A Religious Robbery [Class B Quest]

    Full Summary: A hex witch offered Dan, Frederick, Jasper, and Benjamin a magical reward of their choice if they broke into Biazo Abbey and retrieved one of Archbishop Twizzens personal items apiece. The four arrived, and with use of various instruments and magic, infiltrated the Abbey. Frederick left, deciding this was not his cup of tea, and using disguise, lying, a boyfriends name, and a bit of fighting prowess, the remaining 3 disguised themselves as clergymen of the Abbey. They reached Twizzens part of the abbey with little incident, and the three thieves cleaned him out. After Dan left his calling card, one of the clergymen caught them, and a massive fight involving multiple clergymen ensued. One of the attacking clergymen triggered Dan, resulting in the maiming of several clergymen and the death of at least one. The remaining clergymen were injured in varying degrees of severity. The three thieves escaped the abbey, leaving pandemonium behind them, returned to Casper, and gave the hex witch one item apiece, keeping the more valuable things for themselves. They retrieved their items, and went their separate ways. Minor Summary: Dan, Benjamin, and Jasper break into Biazo Abbey and clean out Archbishop Twizzen's personal abode in exchange for magic items from a hex witch. Opportunities: Join a Biazo Abbey Relief Group to help the clergymen recover, and to better shore up the defenses of the Abbey to prevent this from happening again. Take the bounties posted for the 3, or bring any information regarding them to the nearest Gaian church or nearest authorities. Virtually nothing is known about them except what they look like, a basic idea of how they fight, and the one that is a teen boy claims to be named "Leo". Hunt one or all of the 3 thieves outside of the bounty and bring them to Archbishop Twizzen for a sizeable reward. Alive, if possible.
  26. Draconian Heights

    Arashi trudged through the snow up to the mountains, hearing a draconic figure in the distance. She was pretty resistant to the cold as it didn't affect her much. She didn't look dressed for it, only wearing a blue T-shirt on her upperhalf. Arashi ran through the snow, being careful not to slip over and fall into it. Approaching the area, where she smelt the draconic beings, she lost her footing and fell face first into the snow. The draconic being was face first onto her ground, her crimson red tail with black markings on it and her horns the same color were visible as well as her crimson markings on her body. The musclar draconian sighed as she got up, brushed the snow off of her light brown hair and the part of her face that covered her multicolored eyes that were crimson red and dark blue mixed together. Arashi had a bunch of battle scars across her body, the one most notable was the right side of her cheek. Along with that she a crimson V-shaped marking on the bridge of her nose. Arashi adjusted her dark blue scarf with a flame colored ice blue on it, brushing off the snow from her black sneakers and dark green camo colored pants. "Ughh. I hate snow. This is annoying as hell."
  27. A Religious Robbery [Class B Quest]

    Dan grinned, and the 3 thieves left, leaving the Abbey in total chaos. Once they arrived in Casper, the three of them made directly for the hex witch. They entered her little house to find that little had changed. Which made sense, as they weren't gone all that long. "My my, you return? And unscathed too. Well done." "Yeah." Dan grinned and brought out the framed picture he stole from Twizzen's room. "And we bring goodies." The hex witch's face sprouted a smile as she saw the picture, and the other two items the others brought out. "Yes... Yes, good. And, as requested-" The hex witch brought out Dan's amulet. One she said would make him resistant to all physical attacks. Dan took it and put it on while the hex witch brought out and handed out the items the other two requested. "A pleasure doing business, young ones." Dan turned to walk out of the house. "Well, see ya guys. Maybe we can team up again on another job some other time. Been a pleasure." Dan walked out of the house, satisfied. He had robbed a place supposedly impenetrable, walked off with an amulet that makes him resistant to all physical attacks, and a small fortune, courtesy of Archbishop Twizzen. Not bad for his first heist in this plane. [Fin]
