On a beautiful day in Athentha. The floating islands were casually floating like they usually would. Suddenly there was a bright trail being seen in the sky if anybody were to be nearby. It emerged from the beginning and disappeared like a shooting star would.. It was somehow very fast but people can see it for about 5 seconds before disappearing into nothing. Meanwhile Nesy was in the sky with a blackbird looking-spacecraft that zipped through the clouds of the area and as the spacecraft did it's gradual decent towards the planet. The aerodynamic effects of the space-craft was almost powerful but it's metalic structure prevented it from blowing up while it was zipping through the thin air like a bullet. It appeared as a shooting star in the sky and the spacecraft's trail disappeared from sight. There was a black dot in the sky trailing closer to the floating island in the distance. Eventually the flying thing would disappear out of sight as it landed on the floating island and the spacecraft went idle. Suddenly the airlock of the spacecraft flung open and Nesy would walk up to the roof of the space-craft and he eventually slided down the front and hit the ground on his 2 feet. Who is this being? Nobody knows. It is time to find out who this multiversal being wants. Once in for all.
OOC notice (March 3, 2019): This is a hub thread for the base being set up at the Furthest Point, a hill in the middle of the Broken Plains. For now it serves as an interaction point for the players involved in the Furthest Point battle threads, but it will eventually become an open thread for anyone who stops by the fort after it is built. They had survived. The night was deceptively calming, the crackling of the fires driving away the unnatural silence of Yh’mi. Normally, adventurers in Yh’mi would avoid building numerous fires, in case they drew dangerous creatures from far and wide. However, this time round, Yh’mi already knew where they were. Cutting down their own visibility would only make it more difficult to spot enemies. At least the fires would keep the Wispered at bay. Those tiny insects invaded the bodies of unwary travellers, devouring them from the inside out. Under the warm glowing light, the two surviving wagons were being unloaded. The dry rations and first aid materials came off first, then the tents and sleeping bags, the group needing to replenish themselves and rest up before the hostile land made their next move against them. The Order of the White Hand had made sure that each wagon carried a variety of food, medicine and building materials, to maximize their survivability if they got attacked. They had a routine of hoping for the best and planning for the worst. Fidelitas portioned out the food, just barely enough to keep the fighters from going hungry. If they had managed to keep even one more wagon from falling, their resources would not be so tight, and perhaps they could even have stripped the Saevion meat and barbecued that for a satisfying meal. They were all going to suffer for their failure, but he would tolerate no complaints. When the next morning came, they had to start to build the foundations of the base, basic walls and traps to fend off any hostile creatures. The next dispatch of warriors from Inns’th would bring the mercenaries their gold for completing the mission, if they survived till then. The silver lining was that the group had felled one of the most dangerous creatures known in Yh’mi, the Chhitten Magnus. That was telling of the battle prowess of the team that was amassed. By a stroke of luck, the colossal creature’s foul gut spilled a variety of sturdy weapons and armour from previous unfortunate adventurers. Fidelitas himself had picked up a fine spear that had not been too damaged by the Magnus’ acid, and had wrapped it with cloth. It with this package that he now headed towards one of the fires, and took a seat beside a dark knight. “That was impressive fighting,” Fidelitas told Gormaric, while unwrapping the spear and starting to clean it up. “Your blade, can I take a look at it?” The obsidian-coloured sword had stood out among the rest, and it intrigued the paladin. @EpicRome23
This is the Mil Dot Lunaris: a firearm store that the kind of items that Americans could only dream of, and ammunition types most people don't even think are possible. Outside, there is a switchback staircase in the front leading up to the front covered porch, which continues to the left and right sides beyond the trees. Wooden tables and chairs provide places for people to sit and eat. The front wall is mostly wood-framed windows, surrounded by profiled trim and cedar shakes. Suspended rope walkways also connect to the porch at different places.The windows themselves are triple-pane ballistic polycarbonate, three inches combined, with argon pockets. There is a ramp to a freight elevator on the loading dock for people who can't or won't ascend the stairs, as well as deliveries. A large sign stands on the front roof, with the Mil Dot logo (and name) laid in very white oak with dark ebony. The inside has two areas; the public area, and the private area. The public area takes up 70% of the volume and reaches through the supports all the way up to the underside of the roof decking. The back roof has the same windows as the front wall, and the same density. During most days, the only light needed is in the cases. All of the walls have cedar paneling, all of the lights are warm white LEDs connected to a direct current system, and rock maple covers the floor of the store portion. The eatery is separated only by the line where the maple flooring meets the yellow cedar. The same wooden furniture sits in this area that sits outside, and a wall from floor to ceiling separates the public and private sections. The freight elevator opens up from the "private" area on this wall in a way that does not allow the public free access. Restrooms flank the elevator shaft. The cases that line the back and left sides are heavy, with teak-covered metal frames holding heavy ballistic polycarbonate panes. Rifle racks and heavy cabinets sit behind them, with register terminals between banks of cases. Sharp-eyed observers may even notice the ample tinted camera domes, the Browning M2 and Mark 19 emplacements and firing slots up on the walls and roof sections. The private area is just for people who work here, which includes the kitchen, storage areas, office, utility spaces, and where Thurgood and Aveline live. The only coatings applied to any of the wooden surfaces, inside or out, are clear varnishes and resins, all designed to show the wood's natural beauty. Overall the structure is actually stronger than the trees supporting it. Inside the non-window walls is not just insulation and wiring, but heavy ballistic fiberglass and polycarbonate panels that combined can stop a .50 BMG full-metal jacket round. There is a full inside-outside water deluge system and chemical foam nozzles for fire supression (as well as flame-retardant varnishes and resins), large-scale greensand and DE filters and UV disenfection for water with two cisterns in the "private" area of the roof underside. A 10,000-gallon septic system with integrated grease trap remove waste from drainwater before returning it to the jungle. 80 individual 100-watt solar panels stick above the canopy to charge forklift cells in the utility area (that has ventilation to prevent hydrogen buildup). The forklift cells then power everything else either directly, or through a three-phase pure sine inverter. The Mil Dot accepts lots of different currencies, but the most prominent is this metal exchange: 1 oz of Tin = .25 USD 1 oz of Copper = 2 USD 1 oz of Silver = 10 USD 1 oz of Gold = 50 USD 1 oz of Platinum = 100 USD 1 oz of Rhodium = 500 USD. These do not reflect prices in the real OOC world. Now with Out Of Cartridges (OOC) thread!
