    Aleksei got a reaction from Wade in to the Oath I'm Sworn.   
    The elf folded her covered arms across her lightly protected chest; her stance is thoughtful as her audience awaits her demands. The trolls have been reliable with their information, keeping their promise to answer questions when asked, and being honest - as honest as a troll can be. With a pinch of salt, she rolls this trolls honest words around, wondering how far she is willing to risk her safety and those that had followed her. 
    Somewhere within the depths of the Emerald Graves, a witch has made her home. Not bound by the law of any kind, the treacherous creature has begun stealing items from nearby towns and abused anyone that comes near her. It's a bit unusual considering that witches aren't known for being so forward, though times have changed and what she knows means very little. What matters is the issue is taken care of and fast; in a few days her brother will be leaving to attend a meeting that will decide how Ursa Madeum turns. 
    Ly will not be set aside, not anymore. Milorian can't keep her from the world, not when he can't depend on the rest of his siblings. Wyne and Ronan have already ruined their relationship with Milo, too much hate and pain and revenge have kept the brothers at arm's length with the Lord of their House. Lyrei has yelled at the men, treating them like the children they are, trying to get them to see the reason of some kind. It's been futile, which is why she is here, speaking with a troll about a witch, and trying to decide if she's going to risk her timid freedom or go back home.
    'So, what are you going to do?'
    Lyrei smiled at the voice in her head; Austere has been her accomplice in the night. Without him, she would not have been able to sneak in and out of her home.
    "Sounds like the Tombs are being infiltrated. It looks like I'm going to have to go underground."
    'Be safe and quick.'
    "Of course!"
    The woman waves her small gathering over and begins to outline her plan to them. These men and women were not part of the Seeker order, but their abilities are none to frown upon, and their loyalty thus far has been unshakable. Time isn't on their side, they will have to be quick to either dispose of this witch or begin moving her out of the Free Marches, and it needs to be done before the sun hits the horizon.

    Aleksei got a reaction from Wade in Ylia, the Blossom.   
    Name: Ylia City
    Moniker: The Blossom
    Population: ~6,000
    Protection:
    Seekers - ~500
    The Seekers are the military body of House Mythal. They are highly trained and highly religious individuals who use their devout abilities to protect their House and the people within. 
    Fleet - ~100
    Eagleships are the most common vessels of the Sylvus fleet. Armed with broadside Hawk Talon batteries, these craft are huge, sleek and streamlined, making them both fast and deadly. They are able to out-race even Bretonnian Corsairs and are far more maneuverable than any ship on Valucre. Their hulls are made from a single curved mighty starwood tree, grown specially for this purpose by Master Shipwrights of Sylvania Those shipwrights lovingly tend groves of starwood for a time equal to many men's lives. They sculpt the shape of the trunk as it grows, working with the wood to maintain its strength and integrity. They then carefully select the strongest, most flawless of these magical trees before they are uprooted. Mighty spells are then used to keep the plant alive and the masts are actually branches grown out of the trunk that will become the hull.
    Its sails are works of art in themselves, woven from the hair of several shriven priestesses and spiderwicked in a tapestry of enchanting beauty and finally ensorcelled. Trunks are bled just before the ship is launched and the sap of the living tree is tapped and allowed to flow out and over the hull. The resin is hardened until it is a strong as steel and remains watertight. The ship is then blessed by the Phoenix King himself and allowed to go to sea.
    Government: Governance of the city is shared by an order of Arcanists and wealthy merchants.
    Arcanists: 
    Merchants: 
     
    Shaped from the dunes around the marshes of the Turquoise River, Ylia City is a beautiful seaside hotspot that has adopted a channel system due to the past desecration of the land. The charming city has homes designed to be individually different, painted in soft pastel colors of ochre, pink, and turquoise and features shutters with wrought iron balconies with roofs of terracotta tiles. Arranged into four small islands, Ylia boats colorful homes are linked by bridges over the waterways and surrounded by gardens facing the canals. Ylia serves as a port for boat owners, who park their boats in front of their houses; an abundance of trading happens in the active markets scattered about the city.
    Just outside the city is one major road that leads travelers from and to Senaria and Ylia, with small trails and other minor roads branching from it. The canals are used most often by people to get to and from their homes, shops, and markets that speckle the city. Travel by foot, boat, or water taxi are the primary forms of transportation within Ylia due to the "lagoon city's" overall structure. 
    Ylia is called The Blossom, for it has bloomed beneath the tender love and care given to it by the Mythal House and its followers. The city is shaped by the backdrop of green, fertile fields which have assisted in developing the city to what it is today. The economy has grown with the exchange of rice, wine, fish, also a variety of wools and clothes made by the people of the Mythal House. Wooly bugs and halla inhabit the surrounding fields, keeping the city an active delight of wonders. 
    Culture is rising in Ylia, attracting the attention of many who have no place to call their own to settle down. What historically was a city of little contrast has grown into a vast melting pot, allowing the inhabitants of the city to be free with their beliefs and teachings. There is no true religion within Ylia, though the banners of the Dred Wolf do decorate most homes and businesses. In truth, with the city continuously active with the comings and goings of many merchants, there is just no room or need to settle on only one culture. Overall, the multicultural identity of the city truly leaves a mark. 
    Ylia is made up of four small islands: MAP
    Egron: MAP
    Notable Places: 
    Red Eye: 
    An obelisk of hewn red crystal jutting from the center of the Ylia. If close enough you can hear a tranquil song emanating from the obelisk; merchants and seafaring people leave offerings to the obelisk, believing it will bring them safety and wealth. Could be true.
    Cweyna's Pottery: 
    The workshop of a female human potter named Cweyna, who was once a great wizard, but retired to marry and raise a family. Her pottery is lovely and well priced, but for a few extra coins she will make you something under the table.
    The Cursed Sword: 
    A grand adventurer's inn, kept by a sphinx named Ningal. Certain quests and jobs can be found here at the inn, along with a few scrupulous people and their bearings.
    Ithon: MAP
    Notable Places:
    Kyne's Blades: 
    A modest weaponsmith's workshop, built within the walls of an embattled stone tower. It’s said the smith to this workshop is a young elven man who guarantees he can make anything within a single day time. 
    The Honest Merchant: 
    The shop of a female human weapon merchant named Anor, within which a magical spell prevents lies and falsehoods from being spoken.
    The Crossed Blades: 
    A fanciful adventurer's tavern, built within what was once an aristocrat's manor. While the structure is fancy and high maintenance, the individuals inside are by far the most jovial and down-to-earth in Ylia.
    Falione: MAP
    Topaz Borough: 
    Overgrown temple ruins, said to be haunted by the spirits of those slain upon its altar. All who come near are said to disappear or are left insane, but the idea of treasure hidden within the ruins keeps them active.
    Ardulf's Masonry: 
    A large stonemason's workshop, said to be guarded by living gargoyles. These gargoyles will speak to people and if they like a person, they will point them to certain treasures scattered around Ylia. 
    Inyand: MAP
    The Stacks: 
    A single storey half-timbered building, the home and personal library of a male human sage named Ered. He specializes in the study of legendary heroes and battles.
    The Singing Thief: 
    An elegant dwarven inn, which serves magical potions in addition to beers and ales.
    Ylia Notable NPCs:
    Heva: 
    Female Human Peasant (Evil). Heva is common in appearance, with thin auburn hair and light gray eyes. She wears modest garments and a wide-brimmed hat. Heva is cursed with a maimed hand.
    Gralphye Ginte: 
    Male Human Peasant (Evil). Gralphye has a square face, with silver hair and brown eyes. He wears plain clothing and several small tools hang from his belt. Gralphye lost his reflection to a nymph.
    Jorga Kumidotr: 
    Female Dwarf Assassin (Neutral). Jorga is fey in appearance, with thick white hair and brown eyes. She wears leather armor and wields a short sword. Jorga dislikes anyone smarter than her.
    Elys: 
    Female Human Artist (Good). Elys has black hair and bright amber eyes, and small ears. She wears fine clothing and a silver holy symbol. Elys is thrifty and sensitive.

    He had his opinions about Hildebrand's decision. It would mean that they would become outsiders, in a sense, and whoever followed would now be beneath the rule of that House: their laws, their order, and their decisions. Whatever assistance the House may need will now come at a price. Those choosing to stay beneath the decided government have the responsibility to work around this pebble. Whatever reason behind the decision, malicious or not, the Hildebrand House has now caused more issues than what is necessary. Considering how the whole meeting has gone, Milorian really can't be all that surprised. 
    Thankfully, it is not a failing House. He believes they will flourish enough and probably go about their way, before quietly slipping the knife between the new ruler's ribs. The elf won't make them out to be enemies just yet, but they have now earned a cautious title. Scheming is the flavor of the day when it comes to such grand decisions being made concerning change. 
    Comfortable with marking the Hildebrand House a possible threat, Milorian returned to the rest of the conversation. And then the words were taken away from him when the suggestion of King was planted with his name. He understands the implications of this title, especially the lack of power it came with underneath the new proposed government. Though it isn't power, he finds himself yearning or needing, it is an opportunity and with opportunity comes wondrous benefits. Right now he is being handed a broken system where it was a struggle to get any of them to agree on much, and a few have already shown they can't "play" nice. This disfigured farce of a rule will surely be his undoing.
    Above him, he heard Primera smother a laugh; he wonders if it's at him or the situation.

    King? Well, he has been called worse by better people.

    Aleksei got a reaction from -Lilium- in They call me Remmington.   
    "Problems, they never cease to amaze me."
    There was a small shift in the blue-eyed, golden-haired woman's countenance. For a fraction of a second, the true master behind the puppet appeared in all her glory of blackness and mirth. The bit of memory fluxed before the intruder slipped back into the skin of the young noblewoman with eager hands. Such spoken problems had interrupted her intrusion, causing her to lose a mite of focus, yet not enough that the facade was completely away. She needed to keep the disassociation intact, not wanting to risk the creature dying beneath her fingertips to remember perhaps the faces and voices surrounding her. 
    "Remmington, what an unusual name. Wouldn't you agree?"
    She asked her partner with a minor smile sweeping itself across her pink lips. Often, names mean a great deal to these creatures, like a title of power or endearment - a least, a collar. It made the woman curious if Remmington is just a simple cover for the truth. 
    Shuddering against the sensation of forceful memories, she pushed forward to invaded what she assumes was the breaking point. Blood pooled in the dip of her own ears,  pooling sweetly before dancing down her neck to collect at her collarbone. The feel of the sticky stuff kept her anchored to the real world around her as she perused the streets of the Manabai'wok's memory that shone brightly against the bleakness of its memories. This was not what intended to obtain, but something told her that it was vital to watch the scene. So, in this strange dreamland, she wandered the streets: Renovatio, celebration, lots of people, too much drink ... 
    "Hm, it would appear our little beast was involved with ... mmm ..."
    Words faltered as she sped forward, sifting through all the unnecessary details.
    "Worried, carried away, something's wrong - wrong, so wrong. Where are you? You're leaving me. You're ... disconnected. Gone?"
    The words spoken were not in her own voice, but the voice of the withering creature held hostage. 
    "Evaristus," she said, voice cracking. "Stop, stop, stop! No, please. Alone. Hurt. Failed."
    And that is enough of that; the intruder thought as she snapped that line of memory in half. Too much of a romantic herself, she could not risk getting involved with those lingering feelings left behind in the dusty corners of Remmington's heart. But that powerful connection to a ghost(?) explained why the obtaining of the creature's power was providing to be a nuisance. Abandoned, but certainly not forgotten, and that means what she wanted from the animal could only be partially taken. Damn hearts and their love proving to be a complete hindrance to the things she wants the most. Alas, so be it - fighting for whatever seems to be the best way to live life. 
    "I need you to draw a circle of containment around us, please. It appears there's a bit too much emotional turmoil inside this husk, and I have to pick up the pieces."

    Aleksei reacted to vielle in [GS] Vita.   
    SUMMARY
    After the destructive event of Nu Martyr, Samael travels southwards to Oo’Xora accompanied by the Paragons Ephah Ivanenko and Rami Barzegar. As the boy struggles with his loyalties concerning the Cult of Power, the trio witness the slow fading of the region’s flora and fauna, and so take it upon themselves to investigate the cause. They find out the Grand Kommadant’s plan to release Nehalen from the influence of the gods, and determine that the seraphim Vita is the one responsible for the slow death of the land. After their first encounter with the crazed goddess, Rami is struck down in battle and buried. Filled with vengeance, Ephah and Samael plan to wait out until Vita is drained of her powers enough for them to confront her once more. This time, they win against the seraphim, and she asks that Samael carry her essence in his amulet, thus allowing him to absorb a portion of her powers over water, earth, spring, and life. The land is released from Vita’s strangled and poisonous hold upon it, and in the aftermath of the battle, Samael and Ephah are approached by a mysterious stranger conscripting them to kill yet another god.
     
    MINOR SUMMARY
    Samael leads his companions in search of the seraphim Vita, who they hunt down and kill at the cost of Rami Barzegar’s life. At the god’s death, Samael absorbs her essence and powers. 
     
    NOTABLE CONSEQUENCES
    The god Vita is dead, and Samael has absorbed her essence and her powers onto himself. A strange anti-plague (backlash from the death of Vita) is unleashed upon the region of Oo’Xora, stimulating rapid plant growth to the point of hazardous levels enough to threaten nearby communities within the area.  
    OPPORTUNITIES
    The land is still poisoned from Vita’s influence and will require some tending to. If left unchecked, the anti-plague will grow, spreading further and further until it threatens to overrun the villages and cities of Oo’Xora with overgrown flora and fauna.

And then the words were taken away from him when the suggestion of King was planted with his name. He understands the implications of this title, especially the lack of power it came with underneath the new proposed government.

Right now he is being handed a broken system where it was a struggle to get any of them to agree on much, and a few have already shown they can't "play" nice. This disfigured farce of a rule will surely be his undoing.

    King? Well, he has been called worse by better people. 
    "If there are no objections, I am happy to take the seat as King."
