    James Eredas versus New Challenger

    [Canon Encounter] Finding Fuererkonig was no small feat. However, the Daemonslayer had taken a vested interest in the artifacts and events of Whispernight before, and he had access to resources and connections far beyond most could reckon. The sound of footsteps, the tinkle of metal rolling across the stonework floor. "You could take the power of a dozen of those, and it would not let you win, Pretender" came the familiar voice to interrupt the Rage King's thoughts. James approached at a slow and steady walk, after the minions had left. It was not clear where he entered, but he was dressed appropriately enough. There was none of that custom, master-crafted armor, the Daemonbane set that he bore at the battle of Last Chance, nor any sign of the nodachi, instead he was all clad in black silk and dark leathers, garb for infiltrating, with pouches for specialized trinkets and tools. A longsword lay belted at his hip, and another curved sword lay sheathed across the small of his back. The Daemonslayer suppressed his aura, and with all of these details working together, it allowed him to get this close. over 30 paces away. "A portion of me wants to see you take its power, then humiliate you. But I guess it must be difficult being so weak on your own that you must resort to such false hopes". James had figured him for the type to be using shortcuts to gain power, a coward and a weakling, and here he was, the Rage King proving him right in spades. "How's the arm?" he stopped at roughly 20 paces away and goaded him further.

    [Wind Court] To the beyond

    Felix Steiner-Davion was showering when the call to assembly came. He always did so after a rigorous training session. Although he was married now, he was still considered by many to be the Noble of the Rajput Brigade. At one point he was an Agnivanshi, a Rajput commander, but now he was wedded to Nesoi Leifa, a beautiful, powerful, yet spoiled lady as one of her grooms, both consort and protector. He was an older warrior, though he still appeared extremely handsome and young, with silvered hair and keen, regal features, a result of both fair luck and the curse of the Calling itself, granting him feminine features that would not be out of place on a boy on the cusp of manhood. Had it been purely his choice, he would have preferred to remain in the Rajput and win his own accolades there, but it was not. Politicking was something Felix disdained even though by all accounts and mannerisms he should have been good at it, though it was politicking that had led him to his life as part of the military elite as it was. There was no helping it. He was still bound to his fate, and as he finished the shower and dried and dressed, Felix put on the ever-present mask of nobility that had never been cracked before, even in the heat of battle. At the very least, he could still keep his famed prodigious sword skills honed and his body tempered, as much as for his own sake as it was for that of his honored wife. Soon, he stood across from Lady Nesoi, and next to another one of her grooms, Sanguine he believed his name was, and bowed to his lady. He was dressed in red and gold robes, and his signature dual curved falchions lay belted to his waist. "Welcome back my darling" he addressed her politely and warmly. There was no need for anything else. She would direct and speak, and he would follow.

    Mapping the Depths

    James trusted in the strength and abilities of his companions, charging forth to meet Praetorian in combat. The Daemonslayer sped up as he closed, pushing through the creature's last defensive perimeter of ravenous spiderthings as though the chhittens were naught but dust caught in the wake of a howling wind. The blow was titanic, a single punch like a hammer blow, strong enough to crush almost anything in its path, the impact of which seemed to make the very air around the two of them shake. But Praetorian trusted in its armor, and the only evidence that the strike did any damage was a small crack in the front of its enruned chest-plate. Almost completely undaunted by this mighty blow, the creature finished casting its final summon, slamming its halberd down on the ground once more, the sickly energy it gathering dissipating and washing over the immediate area. The earth rumbled, and from twenty paces away the ground split apart to reveal new nightmare to contend with. It only bore a resemblance to the chhittens through the shape of its head, much magnified in size. Standing so tall it nearly reached the cavern's ceiling, twice the height of a man, the new beast bore three sets of arms, each ending in scythe-like bony protrusion. Powerful muscles rippled under a a toughened carapace on its upper body, and drool dripped from its maw, as if it slavered the impending meals. The beast was so-called Chhitten Alpha, a Magus. As if to herald its arrival, this lord of the underworld opened its maw, jaws distending unnaturally wide and unleashed a howl of incredible volume at the adventurers, like the screech of its lesser cousins, but much deeper and guttural.

    Order of Force Majeure: Dawn Komturie

    "Lots of rules and regs for those where I'm from. Which is actually nowhere near here" he added cryptically. Mark glanced at the bike again, picturing riding one, wind in his hair, selfie to send to his colleagues back in Sigil. They would be jealous. Hell, he was a genuine Frontier Craftsman now, out on the fringe of what he called the civilized world. "Being that I am, Mark Kang, Craftsman for the Order of Force Majeure, I'd say belief isn't the point. The law itself is." The Craftsman pulled out a red and delicious-looking apple from his pocket and held it up for Stello to see. "Look here". He tossed the apple up, and caught it coming down. "What do you see?" Mark went on, before his new friend could answer. "There are many constants in the world. Life, death, taxes. Gravity", Mark flipped the apple back up and caught it again for emphasis, "There are many belief systems in the Force Majeure, but we're not really religious. Some are more philosophical then others. Can be called strength of character, can be called coping mechanism. Master Yodsuwan is a great source of inspiration for many in the Force Majeure, and many take after him in an effort to find purpose" He stopped playing with the apple, and pointed at himself with a jerk of a thumb. "As for me? I practice law. It pays well" And with pots of coffee and circumstances willing, the law was something he could manipulate as well. @LastLight

    Mapping the Depths

    Selene was so agile. So quick. So... living... Horned Beast despised that. She was a bird, free to fly and fight, and so, the undead warrior would just have to clip her wings. Pointing at Selene with its mobile arm, Horned Beast's eyes burned brightly with unholy power, the feeling of which surged throughout the battlefield, and the ground underneath her began to shake. The knightess would find her advance halted by the sudden protrusion of great, jagged pieces of bone, erupting beneath her feet in her path. As it's skeletal fingers turned upward and closed in a grip, a great deal more curved structures sprouted all around her, and would enclose her in a wicked cage of bone. If it was successful, Horned Beast would then advance upon the trapped Selene at a slow pace. It had no facial features, but its triumph would be evident as the towering skeletal warrior plucked her sword from its elbow and regained the use of its claymore, tossing the woman’s sword aside as though it were a toothpick. Dan was faring well. His agility made him extremely hard to hit, and as he actually managed to dodge and counterstrike Might's attempt at a dual exchange, the undead seemed to stagger, a clear gouge seen in the side of the creature's helmet. As the Bird of Hermes feinted to get in close, Might adjusted his grip on his war maul. By shortening his reach, spreading his hands across the weapon as though it were a short staff, he could increase his speed, whipping the handle of the weapon across his side to knock away Dan's air cannon by the hand. The blast would be discharged to the side, scattering stone, breaking rock, and smashing a few unlucky chhittens into a pulp. Knocking aside his attack would not hurt Dan, but Might abandoned any semblance of a stratagem at all now just to attempt to bear hug him. Time to get up close with this supermodel. Death by war maul. Death by crushing. Death was death, and Might sought to take Dan to it. Shrieker's screech terminated in something slightly higher pitched, marginally more painful, but much less nauseating. The Jinsoku powered through his sonic scream at great cost to himself, and as a result, sent the lighter fallen knight flying as it attempted a counterstrike, slamming into the ceiling of the underground cavern and leaving an imprint carved of its own body as it fell back to the earth. Though Shrieker lay unmoving, the light had not yet disappeared from its body. However, it was perfectly vulnerable for the moment for a finishing blow, if the young martial artist could manage it. --- [James/Praetorian post to come]
  6. @Vansin [Hope you don't mind] The older woman pulled Helena onto her shoulders and fled. There was something about the power of desperation, and fear that lent strength to even those old bones. She would collapse eventually, but in the face of Ruska's self-sacrifice, the elven stranger's determination, and her daughter's miraculous survival in the inferno, could she do any less? At the very least, it was one small thing Tirkas did not have to worry about. A meager consolation with the force that was bearing down upon him, to be sure.

    The Wild Hunt (Semi-Closed)

    The first thing Isaac asked when viewing the reports for their latest hunting quarry? "Do we have big enough boat?" The unicorn was simple enough, and the wyvern, while extremely powerful and deadly, was still an easier target in the air then anything in the sea. Flying was something man had more mastery of then swimming. For his part, Isaac tried not to look out at the waves too much during his time on the vessel. He didn't know if he would get seasick, and right now was not a good time to find out. At any rate, when the call for battle eventually came, Isaac jolted awake from his bunk, and rolled to his feet with a cat’s ease. Hefting up his rifle, and picking up a strange looking container, much like a waterskin, the gunner reported for battle onto the bridge to await any special instructions. He had a new weapon to test.

    Order of Force Majeure: Dawn Komturie

    The Dawn Komturie was nearly complete. Or rather as complete as it would be. As the Force Majeure's first major base on Valucre, it would always be undergoing changes to meet the needs of the growing organization. Its construction was accelerated in recent months, thanks to the increased profile granted by the actions of its members, in defending Terrenus, and ventures on other continents. The citadel was capable now of housing roughly a company of fighting men, support personnel, infrastructure and vehicles. The Citadel even had a few sleek-looking airships docked, bearing similarity to many designs made by those of the Imperium of Kadia. Inside, the fortress's entry level, the warm welcoming chambers, conference rooms, and assembly halls steadily gave way to a strange, but oddly fitting mesh of classic stonework in a modern layout, white marble and sandy limestone crafted offices and training rooms. There was a large cafeteria, well-stocked and well-prepared to feed many mouths. If heading down from the entry level, the stonework then gave way to concrete and ceramics. Dark granite and reinforced support columns pierced through large halls filled with training rooms for every form of combat, armories, and barracks. The layout was circular, with a large space in the center, and the room there was off-limited to all but the highest Knights and Force Majeure Custodes. If heading up, steel and glass replaced most of the materials that were immediately noticeable, resulting in a more well-lit and airily locale. It was ideal for embassies, or approved merchants to take up residence, and the higher levels were also connected to the double-layer bridge that connected the Komturie to the rest of Predator's Keep, a rather scenic route by all accounts. The Dawn's exterior featured multiple weapon emplacements, large cannons on a turret, with numerous anti-ordnance measures nearby. The most common sight however, was that of a Custode Guardian. Ever patrolling or standing vigil around the fortress, the main line of defense was easily visible. Although each Guardian's full plate armor seemed to differ slightly in design, or heraldry, they still looked uniform, if only due to the posture of their drill, and their iconic halberds in hand. It was one of these many Guardians who first found Stello, and after studying him from a distance, called it in. The call was intercepted by the Mark Kang however. The Craftsman assured the Guardian that he would see to Stello, if he was suspicious or not. The esquire had spent long hours in the office, and a stroll outside would do him some good. Stello would find a rather professionally dressed, and handsome young man calling out to him from a few paces away in greeting. If there was no sign of hostility, the Craftsman would walk up to, and abruptly sit down next to Stello in the shade. "Hows it going?" he asked rather casually. "Is that your bike" he pointed at the contraption nearby. @LastLight

    The Wild Hunt (Semi-Closed)

    Isaac helped Miss Blonde to the beast, if she allowed it. If not, he offered his rifle to use as a walking stick. That amount of wear and tear wouldn't diminish the weapon any, and quite frankly, her display of power astounded him. "If you can do that did you really need us?" he quipped with a bit of awe in his mirth. Sure, he fired a literal thunderbolt from his gun, but the boss was somethin’ else entirely. The Oriental mercenary called dibs on a bit of the wyvern’s hide (there was plenty to go around), and would also look for the beast’s fire gland. If there was such a thing. He had heard that such creatures could produce their flames from some sort of chemical-producing organ within them, much like a snake possessed venom sacs. From this the wyvern, he would take some bones as well.
  12. Quick question. When is this occuring, in relation to the Terrenus ANT meeting. Two, the Order of Force Majeure will be sending Knight Tenkai Matsumoto as its representative, played by @Tenkai Matsumoto, so you can replace my slot on the list with him.

    [A.N.T.] Main Thread 2: The Treaty of 597

    "For the reasons Empress Rozharon expresses, the Order of Force Majeure believes a mandatory tax to be an unneeded and undesired measure, especially since the contributions given are voluntary and so varied. I also hardly need to point out the absurdity of taxing a Knightly Order whose income is nonexistent compared to that of a landed noble and state like yourself. Please keep that in mind, after you are done using my contributions as a prop", the last few words went unspoken out loud, but the look on his face was hard to miss, like a marble edifice cracked by the weight of severity. James didn't miss the fact that Lord Uldwar called him Regent now, instead of Master as he did earlier, as if the landed title meant more than his role as a warbringer. Lord Uldwar attempted to use his forces (for the second time now too) as a prop while diminishing him. It was an obvious ploy, and it annoyed the Daemonslayer greatly. "The Force Majeure also believes there is no need for an inquisitorial group. This is an open forum, and there is no need to play cloak and dagger or conjure suspicion where there is none." There was plenty of suspicion really, on the part of many parties. It was not conducive to the nature of the meeting they were undergoing though, and therefore James played it down to make his point. Who would oversee such an inquisitorial group? What would keep it free from corruption? It seemed as if House Uldwar wished for a way to extend its reach and influence into matters that were, quite frankly, none of their business. Ambitious of him. But if they really wanted such an entity in good faith... "If oversight for the aid is a must, then I'm sure the ones best able to handle that are the Order of the White Hand themselves." A martial organization with no political leanings was best.
