    People run as the fires chase them. The small city is nothing but ruins, leaving behind memories and a group of Zodiac Knights working against the destructive God. Aestus flies above the fighters, throwing shots of fire at them before having to regain her strength.

    Aleksei got a reaction from Zashiii in Not Your Average Damsel in Distress Call   
    Killian had known Delaney spoke with Milorian about allowing an outsider in. She believed it was an inappropriate move considering the call for help was a rather delicate one, but because there were no limitations on assistance Aolis was tolerated. He held no grudges against the elf, and neither did Delaney, she was simply looking out for the Mythal name, and it's delicate reputation - as is her job. 
    Thankfully, Del is not the sort to be sour towards someone who has done nothing towards her and has been very courteous and curious about the other elf. A master at discussion, she picked his brain, forced him to entertain her though he didn't look too annoyed by it so maybe force isn't the correct word. Nonetheless, Aolis has meshed into their party with subtle ease, and it's with high hopes that he will stay that way for the entirety of this investigation. Killian doesn't want to do Del's dirty work, and the last thing she'd like to do is send a notable partner of the Mythal House home. 
    When they were handed the letter, he peeked over Del's head and looked it over. He noted her gloved finger tap the initials; then he watched her straighten her shoulders and look forward - there it is. She and her Lord are connected to the mind; the moment she saw the initials, she asked Austere if it rang a bell who would then ask his wife. It was easy to tell when the Seeker is having a mindful conversation, she goes silent and still, almost uninterested in the events. Hopefully, Austere's wife can say something about all this.
    "Do you think she'll know?" He finally spoke up, interested in the silent conversation.
    "We will know soon enough. I had passed the initials over to Lord Austere; he believes his wife may know the initials."
    Suddenly the room erupted with activity, peppering this entire event with the right amount of gravitas fit for a dramatic play. They followed Illyana to the courtyard, but Killian and Delaney did not get manipulated by the rushed maneuvers and the high of hope. 
    "We'll be too late," Delaney said.
    "Ask about ships that have left with any precarious cargo. The person may have been smart enough not to use their initials again, but maybe they let something else slip."
    Killian spoke after Delaney, filling the space before they all rode off.

    Kaori instantly melted into a pile of loose giggles, playfully shaking her legs away from the tickling at her ankle. All these familiar faces and voices made the little girl excited and not at all satisfied being high above the events unfolding between everyone. To avoid the tickles and the remove herself from her lofty perch, the little one shifted and instantly disappeared, leaving her father's shoulder empty.
    The trick was one she had learned when a group of older children was teasing her, and in a moment of childish emotions, she just disappeared before her assailants and stayed that way for hours before her mother found her. It had taken her mother some time to calm Kaori down, so she returned to being visible; the emotional effect upon her abilities had then been noted. In time, she learned to use her skill to hide from people or play silly tricks on the adults, often landing herself in trouble. Now, she wanted to remove herself from her father's shoulder so she could reappear right in front of Ozu.
    Impatiently she tugged at Ozu's leg, demanding that he kneel to her height so they could speak. Once he followed her orders, the toddler smashed his face between her small hands and held him close. Not a drop of shyness within her tiny form, the little one stared at him with wide-eyed wonder; his reflection happily embedded into her golden hues. 
    "For you!"
    And with all the strength of a toddler, she forces his forehead against her's, pressing the floral note on her forehead to stamp itself upon his skin. A small puff of flower petals would erupt from the content, leaving the heavy scent of a blooming garden behind as they disappeared from sight and touch. Pulling his face away, she examines the red mark on his forehead with a critical approach. Assured that he was now blessed, she kisses the mark, forcing it to disappear and once it does a trickling of warmth would flow through Ozu's veins. It was a blessing both from Kaori (unbeknownst to her) and Celine (the motivator behind this moment). 
    "A gift for Ozu!"
    Releasing him from his hold, she patters back to her father's side and takes his hand.

    She lifted her face to the air and inhaled deeply, filling her lungs with the humid air wet with strange magic. He saw footprints; she smelled change; something was lurking within the shadows, but she could tell that there was nothing malicious to note. This island had once been part of the current world, and now it struggles are being repeated over and over again, making the land unreliable and dangerous. She could feel time ticking by, causing her skin to rise and her blood to pump; the longer they stay, the more she will become sensitive to the unique circumstance of the island.
    Luck was being gracious with the pair. First their survival against the pirates and now this woman, not just any woman at that - the Head Priestess. Instinctively the Seeker stepped to Grant's side, keeping her right shoulder layered over his left, ensuring a protective spot to set him aside in case of danger. If magic is what's meddling with his current abilities, she can't risk him getting close to things that could make his situation worse.
    "It's a pleasure to meet you Yun Visal; I am Delphine, a Seeker of House Mythal."
    Understanding that they are in the presence of someone historically significant, the elf bowed at the waist and gave a soft introduction. Yun is their key to success, and they must treat her as such.
    "My companion and I are in search of something here on the island. Could you perhaps assist us?"
    They still need to operate under the assumption that anything on this island is first and foremost a possible danger. Yun can't be excluded, Delphine won't allow it, and she's sure Grant feels the same. They don't want to make an automatic enemy out of the woman, not when she is a lost piece of history standing right in front of them, talking and smiling as if it were a reasonable thing to do in her condition. If she is here, there is a chance there are more and less friendly appearing individuals, and speaking to her could lead to other issues down the road.

    Aleksei got a reaction from Mickey Flash in a fortuitous meeting   
    Primera could see the outline of the gentleman before her; lines of dark green and blues carved him; the magic flowing through his veins made him glow softly against the darkened backdrop. Blind eyes flicker with amusement at the sound of her title flowing from his ink dipped tongue - smooth, regal, correct. As far as minor opinions go, she can tell this gentleman has a need hidden behind his coolness, making him utterly unpredictable in various accounts. 
    "You are great company to have in such dull times, King."
    The woman gestures for him to take a seat, making the conversation more relaxed and more comfortable. Tonight they will be exchanging their wants and needs and how they will both obtain them; in a way, they will also be losing some very precious aspects of their livelihoods. She has many things within her power, such as money and fame, items that could get her much, but they are nothing in comparison to the better valuables at her disposal.
    She and her husband have raised four children together, and they've all grown into their own with predetermined determination - a curse, in her opinion. Her sons work to obtain her throne while also going on their adventures that bring forth silly problems. Her daughter has proven to be a better candidate to rule over Renovatio, but her naivety has made the young lady susceptible to the hatefulness of the world. Primera sees too much of herself in her daughter, so perhaps her motivations for this meeting are more self-centered and sinister than they first appear. 
    Once he was comfortable, she withdrew the correspondence between them and placed it before them. "I am sincerely interested in your situation. I understand that stability is the order for the day and I believe I can give you and your people such."
    The Kingdoms of Renovatio have had their problems, but in comparison to the various other places across Valucre, such problems are nothing. Prosperity has never been a complicated item to obtain for Primera.
    "I would like to hear in your own words what you wish of me. What exactly can I provide you, and what will I gain in return?"

    Aleksei got a reaction from King in once upon a time   
    "Do you think he'll be angry?" She sheepishly asked while drawing little lines on the carriage door with a well-manicured finger. 
    "Oh, no, not angry," Delaney said, her smirk drawn high into a smile. Milorian is blinded by the fact that Ly is his sister, crafting him into a very ignorant individual when it came to her. "Furious! Ly, you'll be lucky he won't send you to Misral to dig ditches."
    The elf looked at her hands, red and sore from outside activities not meant for a woman of her caliber. The calluses on the pads of her fingers were tough and rough, ruining the once soft appendages that had only touched lotions, rose-scented waters, and silk. There were even bruises scattered about her frame, creating constellations that have yet to be traced, and they are the main reason she chose to wear such an elaborate dress just to play guard to a carriage.
    Her moment of defense was broken by a most amusing scene that caused her to pause and watch. Blinking rapidly, she slowly opened the door, careful not to disrupt the glorious atmosphere created by stumbling and now bleeding figure. From her position, she painted this wonderful man with a limited brush; the lines were clean, the colors profound in their simplicity, and the reasoning behind the painting is intrinsically pure. Handsome is such a simple word to describe a man, your mind instantly goes to a perfectly enhanced figure carved from marble, with a nose perfect and eyes spaced romantically, hair coiffed and a smile that could melt the sun. That is handsome.
    He is not handsome.
    The closer she got to the bleeding man, the more her laughter spills from between her red lips. By the time she reached him, she was nearly bent over in laughter, unable to stop herself even though she understood it was rude to laugh at another person's pain. He had fallen with so much grace and glory; the entire situation was ridiculously humorous. 
    Without offering condolences, the elf reached up and began to wipe the man's nose, staining her fingers in the process. Delaney was close by, giving both men an apologetic smile. 
    "Are you okay? You took by far the most dramatic fall I've ever seen in my entire life," the elf said, her laughter slowly subsiding. "Look! You've ruined your glove!"
    Looking upon him, her earlier evaluation was not changed. He is not handsome - he is utterly indescribable. A man carved from the cosmos, shaped by the very gods themselves, put upon this earth to be a victim to her lingering and curious touch.

    Grant smirked and threw up a mock salute, "Yes Ma'am."
    The wildlife on the island had taken note of the couples presence, and were making their displeasure known with a cacophony of hoots, chirps, and howls. Ignoring them, he pressed forward into the brush; forging a path for Delphine to follow. At first the vegetation was so thick that he was constantly tearing away low hanging vines and small bushes, but eventually the jungle opened up. While the canopy of trees blocked out a great deal of light, most of the plant life was now above their heads; leaving them free to walk unobstructed. Not long after emerging into the more open space, the prince noted something, and knelt down.
    "Footprints," he reported, "Pretty fresh, hours old at most."
    Rising, he turned to Delphine, "I didn't think anyone would be on this island. Wonder how they're surviving when the island goes underwater."
    "Pocket dimensions."
    Snapping forward to face the sudden presence, he was greeted by the sight of a middle aged woman wearing the ragged remains of a robe. As he looked at her, she seemed to flicker and distort, like a piece of damaged film.
    "There are spatial anomalies all over the island," the woman spoke calmly as she slowly moved forward, "Self contained of course, they don't lead anywhere... but you can take shelter if you use the right one."
    "Interesting," Grant kept his tone even, "But right now I would be more interested to know who you are."
    The woman laughed, "Oh, forgive me. I rarely meet anyone new, so some of my social skills are a bit rusty. I am Yun Visal, Head Priestess of The Church of Three."

    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.

    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

    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.

    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. 
    "My brother Austere Mythal will take his place a Lord of our House."
    King? Well, he has been called worse by better people. 
    "If there are no objections, I am happy to take the seat as King."

    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."

    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.

    From the skies fall meteors, tearing through the surrounding jungle and dispersing any civilians near by. Lighting strikes in various areas, causing small fires and thunder rolls, shaking the ground and cracking it here and there. Ophiuchus has hidden himself somewhere within the jungle, mourning his strength and dying in rage.

    Aquarius has begun to flood the surrounding area, forcing the inhabitants of a nearby town to evacuate. The growing fog has begun to freeze the enormous forest, making it difficult to breathe and move around; the rising waters are poisoned by the bodies of dead animals and individuals who did not outrun the flooding.

    The freezing rain came with a companion: wind. The heavy flow of wind caused the trees to slap against one another and make the cold air extremely bitter and painful against the skin. The workings of a storm are just now beginning as Aquarius shifts beneath the depths of the freezing body of water. Minor waves lick at the intruder, hoping to make travel less than comfortable.
