    Homesteading Old School's a really neat thread. Be sure to submit it for canonization when you're done! :D Also, @Hurttoto if you have time, mind posting in the Silver Skies thread? Forgot to ask but @notmuch_23 you still in for Silver Skies as well?
  4. Interlude: Seb and Carina

    For all the disaster it had gone through, it was surprising Lunaris had at least one decent, intact coffee shop. As usual, though, there was still something wrong. Carina hurried through the streets of the city, hands in her pockets, pointedly ignoring the sky. Not today. Today was a break day. She wouldn't be riding the air currents of this pocket dimension, wouldn't be jotting down notes, wouldn't be analyzing new organisms in Dr. Mortimer's abandoned lab (the last she had checked, there was a "On Vacation" sign nailed to the door, so she'd proceeded to help herself to the tools inside). Her shoulders even felt disturbingly light from the absence of her knapsack. She shook the thought away, taking a deep breath. No, today was a break day. Lunaris was looking rather nice lately, in fact. Thankfully the latest chaos was happening far in the Mountain Quadrant this time. Instinctively, her thoughts turned to her discoveries - the stone-carved prophecy Athena had found, the caverns running under Taen, the- She ground to a halt, realizing she had almost passed the coffee shop. A quick glance inside showed Sebastian already at one of the tables. Carina glanced at her watch, wincing. Late again. Quickly, she entered, taking the seat opposite him. "Hi. Sorry I'm late," By habit, her gaze wandered - there was a handful of other patrons, nice, homey wooden decor, and, oh, a menu. She picked up the menu, waving a waiter over. "I'll have... well, whatever's drink's your bestseller here." She glanced at Sebastian. "Have you ordered?" She turned to the waiter. "Make that two of your bestseller." She put the menu down with a soft sigh, folding her hands on the table, and finally allowed herself to stare at the silver rip in the sky. "So. How has Lunaris been, Governor?" she asked dryly.

    If you can make a plant into a slightly more animal-ish plant, we can canonize it. At the moment I'm still bogged down with school and can barely squeeze out replies, but I'll look into that possibility... December-ish? When we have Christmas break. ^_^
  6. OOC: Silver Sky

    *pokes OOC* hallo guys. No pressure on posting, but let's get this Silver Sky event running again ^_^ I'm leaving the thread along for a while before posting another conflict post regardless of who has or hasn't posted, if it helps move along the plot
  7. The worm that walks (Into the desert)

    Carina nodded, shifting her shoulders so her pack straps settled more snugly. "All right then." She eyed Tafili for a moment; the man was a good ten inches or so taller then her. Carina made a mental note to order some sort of flying transportation from mainland Terrenus. She could carry most people with her flight, though it probably wasn't appropriate to keep dragging them around. This type of traveling risked broken wrists and all that. Carina moved behind Tafili. She leapt into the air in one swift movement, grabbing him under the arms and bearing him into the sky. A few minutes later, the pair dropped a few kilometers from the western edge of the desert. Carina glanced at Tafili, red hair now thoroughly ruffled. "I hope Guest's fine. The winds tend to be very strong up high." "Anyway..." Carina stepped away from the man, raising a hand over her face to shield it from the glare. "We're here." The land around was a vast flat expanse, stretching far into the horizon. Taen's twin suns were less than halfway above the horizon, and each rock and tuft of dry grass threw long shadows. To the west, behind them, the desert was rocky, the ground holding just barely enough moisture that the soil could still be loosely called "dirt" and not "sand". Here and there, stunted shrubbery and the occasional cluster of cacti cropped up, and Carina's eagle eyes caught the occasional shiver of movement in the ground that told of an insect or reptile making its way through the rocks. To the east, after a sharp drop downward, was the canyon lands. The tops of the rock formations were smooth and flat, almost resembling a shattered piece of pottery. Perhaps a long time ago, there had been rivers here; in the canyon themselves, sandstone and compacted sediment into a complex maze of hollows and ridges. Now, Carina could hear the faint whistling of the desert wind as they danced through the faraway caverns. Carina nodded, pointing in that direction. "We can start looking for Guest's worms there. I haven't tried exploring the depths of the canyons yet. I... don't do well in underground places." she said, remembering her last expedition. "But the actual reports of the giant worms are further east." she pointed further, to a tan band that spanned the eastern horizon. "Those are what I call the dunes. She turned to face Tafili. "Do you or Guest have any comment on the matter?" she asked, digging into her pack. Carina produced a swathe of cloth, then busied herself with wrapping it around her head. "I'm going to assume you're human enough; if you don't have any water-retaining abilities, you'll probably need one of these to ward off the heat when the sun rises." As she was reaching into her pack for another cloth, the sound of paw against gravel made her freeze. Carina turned around, squinting. Near a patch of cacti, several forms moved, plodding towards them. The scientist groaned, handing the head cloth to Tafili. "Desert Wolves." she explained, eyeing the figures in the distance. "They probably won't attack, but there's a chance they might be desperate enough to chase us down. It's best we get moving." She started trudging towards the canyons.
  8. Wow, thanks for the likes! Waking up to 11 notifications surprised me, lol.

      Yh'mi's lore is just that good :D

    Rolling for The Worm That Walks in the Desert
  10. OOC: Silver Sky

    Alright, I basically just restarted the posting order. I'm bringing in more conflict in the next round. (This is also my first time using a dice system to determine outcomes so apologies if 19 is supposed to mean overwhelming success and the success I wrote out was... less than overwhelming )
  11. Silver Sky [Taen & Yh'mi Worldrift Event, Part 2]

    Dice Roll: 19 Steel dug deep into rock, slicing through the ink-black tendrils that wormed their way through Taen's soil. As Lante continued sawing, the spray of black liquid increased in volume, dousing all within the vicinity. The dark ichor's fetid stench seemed only to excite the Chhittens, which pressed on with their attacks more furiously. The small creatures' movements became more reckless, almost taking on an air of desperation as they charging straight at the adventurers and paying no heed as their broodmates were cut to pieces by both blade and gunfire. Slowly, though, the geysers spewing dark liquid from the ground subsided. The Elder Tree's limbs shuddered, their wild flailing growing slower as the foreign magic that had taken hold of it loosened its grip. Chhitten corpses littered the ground - as of now, only a handful remain standing. Finally, the Elder Tree grew still. Its pallor remained pale and sickly, death staining its surface grey. The vein of blackness running through the ground underfoot drew back - at least, for a while - leaving the crack it had created still glowing a faint grey. For a moment, it seems as if the party had a moment to catch their breath.
  12. Dice Rolling Thread

    Rolling for whatever's going to happen in my revival post for Taen's Silver Sky event 20-sided die result used for results of players' attacks
  13. OOC: Silver Sky

    Almost forgot: @NUMBER N1N3 , you still up for this? I'm posting in a while. Sorry for the delay, everyone!
  14. Taen HQ

    Still gonna catch up to the silver sky thread. Can you go ahead and start it? Also @Sétanta the Hound how are you? Still want to do that thread between setanta and Carina?
  15. Taen HQ

    @danzilla3 Heyo. Tafili can just ask questions or stuff, then I'll have the new post with them in the desert after flying, and I'll start using our nifty new dice system to start generating conflict and stuff. Sorry for the late post! I'll try to reply faster after that. Also, is Totenborough still gonna be a thing or nah? Also, want to have some chill thread with Seb and Carina maybe just sitting in a coffee shop or wandering through town and griping about how much they hate their jobs (governing a city in a land regularly plagued by world-destroying events and mapping said super dangerous land, respectively)?
