For Spacious Skies

Share
duelingdragons
 The group pulls out their map to decide where to go next. Rere votes they plot over the North American continent next, as there is alligator meat and other more familiar foodstuffs there. Also, she says she wants to make a pitstop in the Carolina swamp equivalent to look for something. Mackenezie is curious as to what she wants. Rere tries to be evasive, but Mackenzie persists, wanting to know what in the world the swamps have that’re worth being mysterious over. Rere reluctantly says that she wants a venus flytrap, but won't go in to why, other than that they're cool. Eli buys the "it's cool" logic and decides to pick one up for himself. Mackenzie is not entirely convinced that an unexplained interest in gardening is a very good reason to pick a destination, but Rere argues they're going to go over that area (and everywhere else) eventually anyway, so unless anyone else has somewhere they want to go more, they might as well humor her. Besides, gator meat is supposed to be really good. Mackenzie agrees that hunting alligators does sound like fun, and is sold on the choice with the promise of spears and nets and bait and things.

Down in Cuba

  Fortunately, those in Heaven are not the only ones watching for the group's flares. The Master, Teacher, Herald, Judge, and Attendant appear in a whirl of darkness. After a moment to assess where they are, the Abyssals move swiftly to stand beside the member of the group whose cast matches there's. Rere sighs and begins grimacing preemptively, but gives the Herald her hand. Omar tries instinctively to pull away from the slight pressure of the of the Teacher's hand on his shoulder, which has no effect other than to  cause the Teacher to grin, switch hands, and hang on more firmly. Eli pouts as he watched the Attendent take his place beside Mackenzie, and glares disapprovingly at the Judge, who glares right back to his momentary shock. Tess bats her eyelashes at the Master in a mock-flirtatious manner, who responds with a wink as he puts a hand on her waist.

Into Cusco

Share
duelingdragons
 The group arrives at the capitol city, a large metropolis called Cusco. They find a public house called Direwolf Paw's Inn, and arrange to meet back again that night. The dark stone buildings are larger than the town they came from, but in a similar style. For a large city without the benefit of magitech in its construction, the city is surprisingly clean.

To the Americas!

Share
Imperial Dragon
The ship meanders towards the Americas. While Eli and Mackenzie are on watch, Eli spots a pod of orcas shadowing the ship. Eli points out the "fish" tailing them to Mackenzie. After a five minute argument about the meaning of the word "fish" they decide to wake the others, some of whom are rather crabby about being woken up on account of big fish OR sea mammals. The group cautiously takes the ship down to investigate, Eli acting as spokesperson. The Orca say that their "leader" wishes to talk. Guessing that this is Leviathan, the group says they will wait. As the group waits for the orca messengers to return, the Herald wanders out and asks for permission to observe the meeting, in part to ensure their immediate safety and in part because he wants to be able to assess where Leviathan's alliances lie. The group is doubtful that Leviathan would have anything to do with Friendly Heart, but nevertheless agrees.

new world, new religionCollapse )

As vaguely humanoid creatures with stubby wings fly towards the ship, the group takes action. Ancient Tree takes evasive action, Omar finds the binoculars Mackenzie made and reports that the creatures look vaguely like Octavian, though the lumpish creatures with their reptilian skin and hornlike protrusions don't have his grace. Stuart and co. head downstairs to avoid being spotted when the Herald confirms the creatures are demons, and defensive charms are readied. The Herald explains that such demons are occasionally used for hunting missions, but occasionally they are also tasked as messengers as the group debates whether to try to figure out what they want or just start shooting. The group decides to send a messenger imp to ask their business while still taking evasive maneuvers. When the demons respond by ceasing their pursuit, the group cautiously brings the ship closer.

Omar returns to his room to find a pale pre-adolescent girl sorting through his scrolls. He glares at the girl, who is an Exalt of significant power to his sorcerer's sight, as she calmly explains that his catalogueing system is inefficient, and that she's fixing it. Omar's incandescent rage is soon heard over the subvoc, and Rere and Eli comes rushing in. Omar coldly demands to know who she is, and orders them all out when he notices that Rere is trying not to laugh.
Take a look. It's in a book.Collapse )

Teacher: Since they weren't around after they died.
Rere: Usually...

The group splits up the latest cool loot. Eli claims the armor-like robes, Omar the sorcery sword and globe, Rere the cloak and bow, and Mackenzie the daggers and armor (though she considers the armor to be mostly for show). Just as the group is setting out on another raid, Badger returns. Eli delightedly offers him a drink, and Badger settles in. The group gets back to the treasure hunting. Mackenzie wants to bring the jeep but the others argue it draws too much attention. Grumbling, she throws bags at the others to handcarry anything they find back. Read more...Collapse )

Rere tries to open the hanger door with essence but it remains stubbornly shut. Mackenzie examines the vehicles while Rere and Tess make terrible "loot" puns and play irritating songs at each other. The group finally leaves the vehicles behind for later and moves on to explore the rest of the ruin. The last room on the right is another meeting room of some sort fairly similar to the first room they explored, with intricately carved walls and an unadorned stone table. While not as self aggrandizing as the tomb they explored near the Czar's city, it becomes increasingly clear that the carvings are for heroes only, no trickster legends need apply. The second meeting room has a door at the far end that opens into a long hallway with evenly spaced open archways that lead into little barrack-like nooks. The carvings are cruder and plainer.

April 2nd, 2010

Omar checks his book inventory, and finds nothing out of place. Rere continues to prepare for learning necrotech and sets to work on jewelry making with some help from Mackenzie. The Teacher checks in to see how Rere is doing, and after she receives a non-answer and cheerfully interprets it as a positive report on her student's well being she explains that there are rumors in heaven of a push on the side of the Emperor to retake the capital and crush Quiet Forest's forces. The Teacher says this is likely a bid to draw the group out if hiding. Rere says its a pretty good plan, if that's the case. The Teacher says they're planning on reversing those plans, and says she'd like to talk to the group as a whole.
