    Dragon Knights Go! [Eldritch Quest]

    The smell inside the fleshy cavern was something mythic. Tears welled up in her eyes as it seeped into her wrinkled nose. When the suggestion came to leave the dragons behind, her heart sank a little. A glance back a Nethious showed that he agreed that he wouldn't fit much farther inside, even with his smaller size compared to the others. He nodded, turned and lept back into the air to defend the opening lest they be cut off from each other. The fireball held by Reyna gave her a little comfort but it was still too dark for comfort. With her bladed arm at the ready she followed the other two, eyes trained to the rear of the group. It was hard to distinguish what was flickering shadow and what was some creature poised to jump out and slaughter their little group. Damn if only they had some more light, she thought to herself. As the thought came to her, a blue light begin to emit from her arm. Looking down she saw that the magitech circuitry imbeded in it had begun to glow a cool blue. "Didn't know it could do that." It wasn't much more light, but it was something. A crawling feeling spread across her skin suddenly as she heard Luther's voice, something didn't feel right. Her suspicions were confirmed when she heard Luther give a warning and saw the mass crash down between him and Reyna. Blades drawn she began to run towards the creature but felt her feet being tugged at. The same as Luther she was held fast by fleshy tendrils grasping at her boots. Unlike Luther though, she had weapons which weren't as unwieldy. Freeing herself took only a moment with her razor sharp blades. With her feet constantly dancing around she began run towards Luther while avoiding being grappled again. This floor was going to make things difficult for them. Her mind spun back to her time in the Military. On one particular mission they had been ordered forward to clear and prepare a site to move to. Along the way they had to cross a stretch of land that had become filled with thick mud. Their small party was able to find a path but that wasn't going to help the main force as it moved across. With no time to wait for the mud to dry, they had their mages use whatever they could to burn and harden the ground in from of the force. Liandri called out to Reyna. "Sear the flesh of the ground!" Leaping to the side she was able to skirt the charging beast and put a gash down its side with her bladed arm. She knew the damage she had done was minimal but it might be enough to pull its attention to herself and away from Luther long enough to get free.

    Jo's distaste for his hounds was stronger then most. Others just gave them a wide berth and went on their way. If that was her feeling though then he could respect that. Nodding his understanding, he snapped his fingers and pointed to the ground. The two hounds moved over and sat beside him with no fuss. As she went on to explain the details of their mission he pulled a pipe from his jacket, packing it with a dark, deeply pungent tobacco. He began to puff away happily as they figured out who's job was who's. "Always enjoyed a good scrap up with the locals. I guess I fill the roll of the muscle." He glanced over at Isacc the large, hooved, slightly awkward creature. "Well maybe not the entire roll, but the hounds and I will have your backs too." Taking another long pull on his pipe he let the smoke roll out lazily. "Shall we have a drink to seal our little deal?" He waved the server over, ordering a round of good strong liquor for each of them.

    Magitech circuits whined as power flowed into Liandri's arm. With each slash of the blade she felt a strange disconnect from it. She had no feeling from the arm, but the weight of each blow registered in her shoulder and down her back. As the magitech worked its strange wonders, her swings became faster, more precise, a deadly dance further enhanced as she pulled a dagger from behind her back. Both hands began to move in tandem, sinking into the stinking alien flesh before rending it apart. Pausing for a moment to watch as Luther and the other dragon knights drove into the wave of enemies, forcing them back. Not for the first time that day, she broke into a smile. While there was still many too kill, there was now an opening leading to the main course. "Any idea how to kill the big one Nethious?" She asked via mental link. She had never heard of a mental "shrugging of the shoulder" but in this case she guessed thats what it was. The head, the heart, or the eyes are a good place to start. Nodding in agreement she gazed at the beast, formulating the best approach. Groups of the swarming monsters began to fall back and form a shield, blocking the way to the largest among them. So they truly were just fodder to occupy the time of the city's defenders. "We don't have time to deal with those little bastards." in her mind an almost hesitant mental image formed. "You are worried Nethious? What troubles you?" As she asked her question a clear picture formed in her mind. Not just an idea like most of the mental links, but a full moving image. It showed her, Nethious and possibly two other dragons and their riders slipping somewhere that Nethious wasn't too fond of, using it as a means to travel past the swarms and get to their main goal. "I trust in you Nethious." It took a moment to concentrate and to grasp at her link with Luther and Reyna, but she was able to convey the same image and plan to them. Nethious would pull them all into the Shadow realm, using it as a means to bypass the smaller swarms before returning to their normal plane much closer to the main target. All in a mater of seconds.

    30 minutes? That was all they had? The task seemed insurmountable with the forces currently at their disposal. She shook her head, dissapating the negative thoughts. Now was not the time to question, now was the time to act. The mental link with Nethious sparked in her mind. She wasn't armed with any sort of ranged weapons, nor was she a spell caster like some of the others. What she did have was her arm though. It was an interesting piece of magitech that she had acquired when she had lost her real appendage. It was also her chosen weapon these days. With her arm hanging down, she formed the mental commands that would activate the arms "spells" or programs as the creators had called them. These programs did a few different things, first they allowed her to use her arm as any normal person or creature would use their arm. This wasn't difficult for her to do most of the time, but if she activated the combat protocols then things got tiresome rather quickly. Concealed along the forearm section of the arm was a metal blade that slid down from the wrist with a soft ringing noise of metal passing metal. The sword was literally an extension of her arm that made her extremely deadly in melee combat. With his rider prepared to attack, Nethious began to power his way forward towards the sky terror, following closely behind Reyna and Athari. Nethious pulled up short as Athari released his powerful breath weapon to avoid being caught in the same blast. His powerful wings beat down causing him to swoop up, gaining altitude. As they lifted above the mass of creatures his wings folded back, for a moment they seemed to hang suspended in the air, Liandri's stomach lurched up into her throat with the sudden momentum change. She let out a gasp that turned into an adrenaline fueled laugh. No airship could hope to match this! Dragon and rider turned in the air as they began to plummet down towards the shifting mass of creatures. Nethious tucked his wings back allowing gravity to pull them towards their targets. Their momentum slammed them into the uppermost level of creatures. Claws raking and tearing at flesh, sword flashing out and stabbing into the misshapen bodies of the swarm. Nethious fang filled maw tore into the creatures sending blood and ichor flaying back into Liandri, causing her to laugh all the louder. They left nothing but death and chaos in their wake. When they were squarely inside the swarm, with no sight of open air Nethious began to breath. Ashy black shadow stuff poured from his throat, purple energy crackling through in great pulses. Each creature touched by the breath began to shiver and quake before starting to claw at themselves trying in vain to remove the shadow stuff stuck to them. The sizzle of flesh could be heard faintly over the cacophony of the swarm. All they accomplished was tearing themselves apart though. As they died and fell, their bodies colliding with others. Those that found themselves in contact with the shadow stuff found it to stick to them, unable to be removed. These too began to claw and tear at themselves. It was a cascading effect that continued as long as something came in contact with Nethious heinous weapon.

    Watching the other two riders mount their dragons, she looked to Nethious. The slightest bob of his head told her that she was welcome to do the same. Kneeling forward allowed her to climb up and take a seat near the base of his neck. Shadow material oozed from beneath the scales around her, wrapping itself around her thighs, holding her firmly in place. As the shadow formed, a thought came to her, as eager as she was to fly with a dragon, she had no idea what she was doing! Her heart quickened at the thought of Nethious rejecting her due to her abilities. Her flesh and blood hand began to shake as she imagined walking away from him. Then a feeling washed over her. It felt warm and comforting, it invited her in to stay. Do not fear little one. I will worry about flying, you just think what you want and I will help the best I can. She looked up to see Nethious craning his head to look back at her. She saw what she thought was a smile forming on his great dragon features. This made her smile whether it was true or not. "All right, I trust you." Looking up she saw the others taking off towards the sky terror. "Lets go join our comrades and see what we can do." Nethious nodded and unfurled his wings.While the other dragon's wings were leathery and sounded as such, Nethious' wings were almost silent. There was no rustling of scales or hide against one another, he was quiet. Only the sound of his sharp talons and tail swishing the ground seemed to generate any noise. Shadow stuff swirled as he began to beat his wings, lifting his bulk from the grounds. It was mesmerizing to watch it move and spin as the wings lifted up and down. She could feel his great muscles shift and move beneath her. It was strange to be atop this creature of such vast power. Nethious let out a great reverberating screech that filled the air and stung her ears. She looked towards his head and saw it pointed in the direction of the sky terror. They were still a ways off from the main group of dragons, but she saw what had caused him to let out that shriek. Two great clouds of something left the central mass of the creature and began heading towards the city. It almost reminded her of the massive Starling flocks she had seen before. The way it moved and twisted didn't seem like it was a singular creature but thousands of much smaller ones. Shall we little one? Nodding her head she thought her reply. "yes lets go hunting." Remembering her place as a subordinate she sent a similar thought directed towards Luther. "Orders sir? Shall I engage?"

    Gerikan saw something flash across the woman's face as she looked at the hounds. He couldn't quite place what the emotion or thought was but it was only for a moment. Looking down at Riken and Horek he saw their eyes narrow in her direction. Then someone dropped something resembling meat on the floor and they were off. A deep sigh escaped him. "You're going to get a bone stuck in your gullets!" He called after them. Shaking his head, he turned to look at the most recent arrival to their motley little band. Gerikan let out a low whistle as he craned his neck back to get all of the creature into his view. "Gods yer a big fella eh?" He gave the large hoofed creature a second look over before returning his attention to the woman across the table. The woman, Jo, didn't seem too keen when the book was brought up. In fact she looked downright miserable! Something didn't quite feel right, but that was where the best sorts of adventures started from. She looked even less friendly as she outlined the compensation that would be provided to each of them. He didn't care much for the money, he was in it for the adventure and danger that usually came along with it. The money was a nice little bonus, it kept him in drink, a bed, and sometimes bought him a little company to fill said bed. Then the man with the large pack began going off about some sort of contract. While able to read and write, Gerikan was never one for contracts. Glaring at the man he let his distaste for such things come to light. "Contract? Liability? Im all fine to help, and if my health is on the line then that's my business. Now here I was thinking this fine lady was my employer?" He pushed the contract away from him without signing and turned his voice back to Jo. "No disprespect, but the fuck's he on about with this contract business?"

    Gerikan always felt that urge to keep moving. No matter how nice a place was, it just never felt like home. His legs yearned to always carry him somewhere new and unexplored. Working aboard ships helped sate this thirst for adventure, but even then he would feel the need to jump to land and wander around discovering something. His latest bout of wanderlust had sent him into a lovely little hole called The Bewitchen' Marsh in Vechynacht. It was a charming place filled with puckering holes of stinking muck and beasts looking to drag him under the fetid water, it was perfect. A nose nudged his hand. Looking down he saw the happy face of his companions, two very large wolf like creatures, his Storm Hounds Riken and Horek. Riken was the larger of the two, his thick coat much darker then his brothers. He also had a large scar running down the side of his head. Horek was the color of ash. Both of the hounds had glowing blue white eyes that sparked every so often. Their mouths glowed with the same color, back lighting sets of vicious fangs. Both had their tongues lolled to the side as they panted in the thick, muggy air. Instead of saliva though, their long pointed tongues seemed to drip liquid lightning that fizzled and hissed as it hit the ground. Horek had been the one to nudge his hand. His was of demanding a quick scratch behind the ears. Gerikans hand, with its long pointed nails, was obliged the hound. As he scratched away, the thought, Happy, filled his head. This was Horek's mind in his. He could communicate basic needs and wants with his companions. The more complex the thought, the more strain it put on his mental state. Usually he would just speak out loud and the meaning would convey itself through their telepathic link. "Come on, I don't think we've got much further to go." Horek gave a low howl that seemed to reverberate and buzz with electric energy. "Yes and then dinner." They continued walking along the path that wove its way through the marsh. Riken and Horek bounded around him sniffing and pawing at sticks and various plants. Every now and then, one would disappear into the thick mist, chasing some unseen animal. Buildings began to materialize out of the mist, forming the outline of the city he had been seeking, Penumbra. Why anyone would build a home out here was beyond him. The hounds fell into close formation behind him, surveying the area with their keen senses, ready to jump to their masters aid if trouble arose. From his coat pocket he pulled a scrap of parchment with a location and some details. He was here to help search for a book, but first he needed to find a tavern, which was becoming quite the pain in the thick mist. Finally after asking a few paserbys and getting a few mumbled curses thrown his way, a signpost directed him to his destination. Stepping inside he found the interior to be only slightly more cheery then outside it. As far as taverns went, it wasn't much better or worse then ones he typically found himself in. As soon as he entered the room, Riken and Horek's eyes locked onto a pair at a table farther in. Sitting at the table was a woman, and a man who seemed to be having trouble with his over sized pack. Riken gave a muted growl, his eyes narrowing. Trouble, was the thought that came to him from the hounds. He would be on his guard while dealing with his contacts. His boots thumped on the wood floor as he approached the table with the pair. No one seemed to notice him as soon as they saw his hounds. Their side of the room became much less crowded very quickly. When he was next to the table he gave a command to the hounds, who sat down, still not removing their eyes from the female. "You the ones who need help finding a book?"
