You make your way back to Jormungandr, pacing across the entire ship, eyes darting out for your target. .And you find them."Raziel, what do I do?" You ask her."Okay, okay," Raziel said, as you and her sit in her cabin on Jormungandr. "Calm down. What's going on?"
>>20441231"Err... um... well... Kristoph just told me that Leon is, um, interested in me, and I don't know what to do!"
"Err... um... well..." You say, your cheeks burning. "Kristoph just told me that Leon is, um, interested in me, and I don't know what to do!""Oh." She said, and sat there for a moment, thinking- you can tell she has no idea what to say. "Well, uh, How do you feel about him?"
>>20441231"The guy who humiliated me in front of everybody is, at least according to Kristoph, interested in me."
>>20441341>"Well, uh, How do you feel about him?""I think I need a few days to cool off, to be honest, after that duel."
>>20441341I am not really sure. I know barely a thing about Leon.
>>20441341"I'm not sure. He seems okay, but that whole duel thing really... I don't know."
"I'm not sure. He seems okay, but that whole duel thing really..." You shake your head. "I don't know.""Then. . just act like Kristoph never told you." Raziel said. "I mean, you're. . probably going to run into this sort of thing quite a bit. You're young, attractive, impressive, and a queen to boot." She shrugged. "I can't really help with this much- my experience with this kind of stuff didn't end up very well. Just. . put it off until you *do* know."
>>20441451"Yeah... I think I'll just ignore it for now."
>>20441451"Thanks, Raziel. Would you be willing to join me in my cabin for some tea? We could to about things. Like... not duels."
>>20441451You're probably right. I've noticed a disturbing amount of blushing people around me, these past few days."
"Yeah... I think I'll just ignore it for now." You say. "Thanks, Raziel.""You really should ask Marigold about this sort of stuff." Raziel said. "Yeah, I'm a hundred years older than her, but most of that was spent chasing after my brother.""Would you be willing to join me in my cabin for some tea? We could talk about things. Like... not duels.""That wasn't a duel. That was just sparring." Raziel said, and then smiled "But yeah, we could talk. If, uh, it's not too much, I'd like to hear more about Arcturus. That squirrel creature was . .interesting."
rolled 61 = 61>>20441582Let's just teleport the two of us to our cabin. I don't think Ishelda is in the mood to face anyboyd else right now.
>>20441582"That's fine. I'm kind of surprised squirrels don't exist here really. They were near ubiquitous in Arcturus."
>>20441609Let's... let's just walk. There's no need to go completely overboard and teleport
>>20441582"I could ask Kaliel to make one."
"That's fine." You say, as the two of you walk to your cabin. "I'm kind of surprised squirrels don't exist here really. They were near ubiquitous in Arcturus.""Well, Arcturus doesn't have trolls, or wyverns, or anything like that, if I recall correctly." She said. Something occurs to you while you serve yourself and her some tea."You know, in all my time here, I've never seen a dog or a cat." You say. ". . I've heard of cats." She said, tapping her finger against her chin. "From Azariel, about the kalak home realm. But there aren't any here. They're like. . small, domestic lions, right?"You nod."Then. . what are dogs?""Domestic wolves." You say. "Larger, with great floppy ears. . "While you sit there, back to back against Raziel, the two of you start discussing your own homeworlds, despite Raziel not knowing her homeworld, other than what Azariel had told her.". . I wish I knew more about my mother." She said finally, eyes closed. Her empty teacup clattered against the saucer.
>>20441707"Please, tell me what you do know about her. I know very little of my mother as well."Tell her about the dream we had. We can leave the daemon bits out, although I think Raz won't care.
>>20441707Give her a hug. "have you thought about using that ritual to find out about him?"
>>20441707Hold her hand without saying anything.
>>20441743Seconded. Give her hand a squeeze and say nothing.
You set down your own tea and hold her hand. She responds by giving your hand a squeeze, and then she takes a deep breath. "Azariel doesn't know anything about her. Or my father.""Have you thought about using that ritual to find out about her?""I have." She said. "But I can only use it once every few days, and my magic will be weakened for days afterward. Rituals are exhausting things. I can't risk it, because if something goes wrong, I'll need all of my power. And then I have to summon Uriel without a focus, which is going to be difficult..."She frowned, and closed her eyes."I liked things better when I was just in my crypt, alone but for my work, learning about the past."
>>20441802"You... you don't enjoy our company. . .?"Then hug her.
rolled 22 = 22So when will we summon silly hat?
>>20441802Hug, "I'm sorry I showed up and made things difficult."
>>20441802"Find out about your mother. Uriel can wait, it's not like he's going anywhere."
>>20441847Anyone have an objection to this?
>>20441892Could you jog my memory why we wanted to talk to him? Or was it just the apology mentioned last threat?
>>20441901Just the apology, as I recall.
>>20441892Nah. Is good. Apologizing to Uriel primarily seems like a whim, anyway.
>>20441908In that case, I'm okay with it.
>>20441901It was just an apology. We already know what he was up to, and he's not relevant to the current plot.
You turn back to her, and she's facing away from you, staring at the wall. . so you hug her tightly. "I'm sorry I showed up and made things difficult." You say."No, it's. . It's fine. I was the one who showed up on Jormungandr, stalking my brother." She said, sighing. "Find out about your mother." You say. "Uriel can wait. It's not like he's going anywhere."". . Ragnarok went somewhere." She said. "But thank you- I will. What did you find out about your mother?"You stiffen, and she can tell.".. Ishelda?"
>>20441932Sigh, then tell her what we found out. (We already told Kristoph, so there's no reason to not tell Raziel.)
>>20441932"It is... complicated. And confusing... and a bit scary as well."Spill the beans. Raziel is a good friend. She will understand.
>>20441932Tell her what we told Kristoph. And then tell her that Mother barred the Demons from Arcturus "until the day she died."
>>20441932"I… I'm not sure. She wasn't originally from Arcturan lands, she came through a portal, but… I couldn't make sense of what was on the other side. And I saw speaking with a demon, saying it was no kin of hers."
"It is... complicated. And confusing... and a bit scary as well." You say, and then you tell her what you'd seen though the spell."Until the day she died. . " Raziel said, thinking. Her voice was carefully neutral. "Maybe. . Maybe there's more to demons then we think. You said that sphere on the other side of the portal whispered something to you, right? What did it whisper?""Arakoatoa." You say. "And what exactly was on the other side?"". . I . I couldn't make sense of it." You say. "It was all color and light and glass."She was quiet, and just squeezed your hand again. "If I do the ritual again for you, you should be able to find out more."
>>20442095"That can wait. I would very much prefer it if you tried to find out about your mother first. I don't want you to delay that for my sake."
>>20442095"I want to find out more, but at the same time it scares me."
>>20442095"Probably. But find out about your mother first. My heritage isn't immediately important. At least, I hope not."
>>20442095"You first. You've been waiting longer than I have."
"That can wait. I don't want you to delay finding out about your mother for my sake.""But I still would." She said. "It's up to you.""I want to find out more, but at the same time. . it scares me.""Because of what you've already seen. . or because you're scared of what you'll see?"
rolled 7 = 7Hey guys we should kill ourself so we will know who the hell is Arakota.Or if you want to be borring summon it here.
>>20442157"Both. It's not going to change who I am, but... Well I really don't like the idea of being part demon."
>>20442175Considering how the Arakota has the power to completely destroy souls, I'm gonna say no to fucking with it/them.
>>20442157"I know you would, Raz. But I don't want you to. It's not going to change who I am, whatever my mother might have been or still is, I am still the same Ishelda. Queen of New Arcturus, bestest friend in the world."
rolled 27 = 27>>20442157this>>20442165and because I've had my turn; no I want you to search for yours and I'll be there to give you s hug when you snap out of it.
"Yes. It's not going to change who I am, but... Well I really don't like the idea of being part demon.""Your mother wasn't a demon." Raziel said. "You told me she was chastising the demon, not acting like one.""I know you would delay it for my sake, Raz, but I don't want you to. I've had my turn."In response, she hugs you back and starts to say something... Just in time for someone to knock on the door.You stand, try to regain your composure, and open the door. the mousey, red-eyed human version of Kaliel stood there. "Ell told me to tell you that we've arrived at Ursae province." She said, looking from you to Raziel and back.
>>20442259"Thank you Kaliel. We'll be up in a minute."
>>20442259Hug Kaliel too
>>20442259"Thank you, Kaliel. I just needed some tea, and the chance to talk in private with your sister. You know, after what happened.... She was so kind to entertain me by asking about Arcturus, my old home. To help me get my mind off things."

>>20442339Nah, that's a bit too silly, I think.
>>20442300I agree. We need more hugs. We're a queen, so we take them.
rolled 5 = 5>>20442348yup and hiding how she feels in The Silly is a trait I associate with all of the main characters in exabytes quests
"Thank you, Kaliel. I just needed some tea, and the chance to talk in private with your sister. You know, after what happened.... She was so kind to entertain me by asking about Arcturus, my old home. To help me get my mind off things.""Good to hea-." She said, and took a step back when you suddnely hugged her. "-um."Raziel chuckled at the shocked look on Kaliel's face."I, uh, still don't have my balance yet." Kaliel said. "Please try not to jostle me."
>>20442394"I promise not to do it... If I get to ruffle your hair, again."Anyway, time to get out there again. Show the world who queen Ishelda is. Onwards, to victory!
>>20442394Pout a little.

>>20442540Not with a roll like that we can't.
You pout a little."I promise not to do it... if I get to ruffle your hair."She frowns, but nods. So, gleefully, you ruffle her hair."That feels so weird." She says, frowning. "Like my crest is going all topsy turvy."You laugh, and make your way back above deck, where the lizardmen and arcturian archers peer down at Ursae. The knights, who have presumably been here before, simply sit down, talking with Leon. Ell waves, and points you to the airship tower- it's still under construction. One of the workers wave, and point you down to a temporary, raised platform near the plaza. You make your way down to the plaza, and High Lord Ursae is standing there, his beard was longer than you'd seen last time, and braided, tied with a strip of leather."Good day, friend!" He called- Ah, right, Ursae was never one for formality.
>>20442576call back"Good day, Ursae!"
rolled 99 = 99>>20442576good day Ursae, how is the province?
"Good day, Ursae!" You cry, and wave back, as Jormungandr shudders into place, and as the gangplank lays itself out, toward the raised platform. You climb off. "How is the province?""It's been fairly well. Sorry the tower wasn't done." He said, chuckling and clapping his hand on your shoulder. "A lot of our manpower was more focused on getting the new province all ready. So when we heard you were arriving, we built this big thing. The healers are in the cathedral right now- they're about to start ringing the bell to cure the latest trollsick."
>>20442668I fucking hate you.
rolled 96 = 96>>20442700suck it bitch>>20442699trollsick?
"Trollsick?" You ask."Oh, well, we have a bit of the adventurer's guild here, and they've been hunting down trolls for a few coins of gold each. Inevitably, one gets stung by a thorn. The court magician of old found out that troll venom is magical in nature, and so we simply ring the World Key, and it cures them." He shrugged. "They still need care after that, but it's much easier to care for them when they aren't actively dying. I was part of the Healers once upon a time, you know. Still have the white robe, I think."
rolled 18 = 18>>20442766I seeyou should wear it around sometime and see who recognizes you. might be a refreshing bit of fun after a long month of running a province.will you accompany us to the cathedral? I'm eager to meet fellwinds new friend
"I see." You say. "You should wear it around sometime and see who recognizes you. Might be a refreshing bit of fun after a long month of running a province."He chuckled, and nodded. "Two, actually. I've been sending pigeons to Manisla and keeping things stable there until they elect a high lord. I didn't know the hobgoblins freeing their slaves would amount to an entire extra province.""Will you accompany us to the cathedral? I'm eager to meet fellwind's new friend.""Jeanne? She's a kindly girl." He said. "This way, your majesty."He hummed as he walked- your companions came, but the soldiers didn't, instead peering around the city from the Jormungandr.You enter the cathedral, the very moment the bell started ringing- there were several unconscious men lying on the pews, and white-robed men and women stood near them, binding their wounds and putting on poultices. You see a few whispered healing spells between each ring of the bell- it doesn't seem to be working well, but they do it nonetheless.In the very back, you see Fellwind, his white hood down, as he rings the bell. Sitting down near the back, hugging her knees, was a woman in layers of leather armor, and way too many belts, covered with pouches. She had light hair, and freckles covering her face. Neither of them seem to notice you.
rolled 12 = 12>>20442918"pardon me lord ursae"envelop our-self in a setting apropriate equivalent of a "somebody else's problem field" and walk right up to stand in front of fellwind.when he's done ringing the bell we drop it and say hi.
>>20442918let them finish their ringing, then walk over."Hello Fellwind."
rolled 40 = 40>>20442994damn rollovers!I do dislike my erratic luck most days...
>>20443014You wasted a 99 and a 96. Maybe if you hadn't been wasting them, you'd be able to cast worth a damn when it counts.
You wait for the ringing to stop, and then Fellwind rubbed his hands together, stopping the ringing of the bell."Hello, Fellwind." You say. He turns back to you, and nods."Hello, Ishelda. I heard you created your own kingdom. How's that going?"The girl grabbed Fellwind's hand and pulled herself up."Stop being so awkward, Rik." She said, and then looked to you and gave you a grin. "Hi. Pleased to meet you. I'm Jeanne." She held out her hand, as if to shake, and you see that her hands are covered in small nicks, and old blister scars. Her knuckles are the worst, with hard calluses grown up around them.
rolled 41 = 41>>20443104pleased to meet you Miss Jeanne, I trust you've been keeping Fellwind under control? >>20443064I roll for everything in case the number is needed. and besides there is more to the game than the casting of spells.
>>20443064Don't try to argue. Others have tried it before you, all of them have failed.
Shake it we arent some barbarian we are magician
"Pleased to meet you, Miss Jeanne." You say, and take her hand. "I trust you've been keeping Fellwind under control?""Hah, I would if he needed it." She said and nudged him with her elbow. "Other than his 'talent', if you can call it that, he takes care of himself most of the time."
>>20443104Shake her hand, ask her opinion of tea. Hug Rikar. Then Jeanne, too.
>>20443225Seconded, except hugging Jeanne. Bit too early for that. Hugs are for friends, and fluffy things. Not potential friends who aren't fluffy.
You give Rikar a hug, and then grin. "What's your opinion of tea?""Tea? Is that the, uh, new thing that Cerulean province does? Some kind of drink?""It's arcturian, technically." Fellwind mumbled."Oh. Whoops, heh." She said, grinning. "Well, I can't form an opinion on something I haven't tried." She said, and shrugged. "Come on, Rik. I want to see the airship.""Right, right." He said. "Shall we go, lady?"
rolled 41 = 41>>20443222"glad to hear it; I trust you don't get airsick?"look to fellwind"I do hope you mentioned all of the weird stuff to her so she won't freak out at every little thing"

>>20443314"I think so. Unless any of my crew have business here in Ursae"And we have found somebody we can introduce tea to. All the wonderful kinds of tea she doesn't know. She's at our complete mercy, she shall become our apprentice in teaship!Start giggling.

>>20443373Ruffled Blunderbuss tea.
"Glad to hear it; I trust you don't get airsick?""Well, I haven't had many chances to ride airships, so I can't say I know." She said, chuckling. "Except for the demon, but that doesn't count."The three of you make your way back to the cathedral's doorway, and you notice that Kristoph is looking up at the bell, where the World Key hides. . and then shakes his head. The rest of you make your way back toward Jormungandr. "Seeya, Ursae." Jeanne said, waving to the high lord. The high lord chuckles.
>>20443415(Verb) Noun Tea>>20443418"A demon, you say? Sounds like a story."

>>20443450FUCK. I meant (Adjective) Noun Tea.FUCK.
"A demon, you say?" You ask. "Sounds like a story.""Well, back at the wall, I was one of the people working on the catapults and ballistae." She said. "Suddenly, there was a breach, and demons poured out. The big shield ones, the bladed ones, even the winged ones.The hobs and trolls got most of them, but some imps got past the lines to the workers. They seemed to home in on me, and a winged demon grabbed me and tried to take off. I got tugged pretty far, and it bit me, but I tried to punch the thing until it let go. I, uh, accidentally killed it. Hit the neck just right or something, I dunno. Landed on it, and it mostly broke my fall. I ended up on the inside of the wall, and I thought I was completely *dead*. But it turns out that breach was the last, and the demon portal was closed."
>>20443475"I'm glad Azariel managed to do that in time to save you. Too bad it cost him his life."
>>20443475"Well, that was convenient timing, then." Smile mysteriously, and somewhat sadly.
rolled 99 = 99>>20443475>>20443475how fortunate, and that explains the old bruises on your knuckles. sometime you might get to thank the spirit of the being that closed the portal with his own sacrifice
>>20443489Leave out that last bit
>>20443531No monotreme, use tact. Come on. It's rude to bring up physical deformities, whether they be caused by injury or birth.
>>20443547I'Ve got to agree with this.
>>20443547Also, the event in question was over two years ago, that would not explain the bruises.
>>20443547She's a healer in a city of healers, presumably she could heal it if she didn't want to keep it as an awesome memento of holy fuck I punched a demon to death with this hand. I don't see why she'd be embarrassed.
"Well, that was convenient timing, then. I'm glad Azariel managed to do that in time to save you." You say. "Too bad it cost him his life.""The bird guy, right?"Fellwind nods."Yeah, I wish I could thank him. The hobs never really deserved to have to fight off those things- not to thank him for myself, but for all of them.""His spirit's still kicking around." Raziel said. "I can summon him once it gets dark, before we get too far away from New Arcturus.""Really? Cool." She grinned, and held out her hand. "I'm Jeanne.""Raziel." Raziel responded.
>>20443575Huh, she's a healer as well? I think I managed to miss that.
>>20443576Well, do we still have to pick up somebody?
>>20443580I got the impression she was before she was hobnapped, but maybe I'm just making that up because I can't find it in the archives.
"Are you a healer too?" Raziel asked."Nah. You don't see a robe on me, do you? I did get training from them, because they teach freely and stuff, but I never took the vow or anything, so they didn't teach me the magic. My hands aren't suited for magic anyway. The work gnarled 'em up."You feel a twitch of dire magic from Fellwind, but he closes his eyes, and it fades."Don't go getting angry, now, Rik." she said, patting his shoulder. "The hobs just did the only thing they knew to do.""Right, right." He said. "Sorry."
>>20443647They're not very good healers if they can't heal your hands to teach you.
>>20443647If you want I could try to heal them, though my friend back in New Arcturus might be better at it. I'm not going to guarantee that it'll work, but it might be worth trying.
rolled 44 = 44>>20443647"What's wrong them? I could... try to fix it, if you like."Rollan to do so, if she says yes
>>20443647Let's give them a tour of the ship. And ask Rikar about the details of his vow.>>20443692Maybe damage done by demons can't be healed very easily? Or maybe she chose to keep the scars as some kind of memento, or badge of honor.
"They're not very good healers if they can't heal your hands to teach you."She looked at them. "Well, they offered, but that feels cheap to erase my history like that. And I don't really want to be a healer- I considered going back up to Sirius, or even running for High Lady in Manisla, but then I ran into Fellwind at the cathedral."
>>20443715I bet that shocked him.
>>20443715"What's your history, if you don't mind me asking? Did you grow up together, are you distant relatives?"
rolled 85 = 85>>20443715"Well, perhaps we could... restore the flexibility, without changing the outward appearance?"
>>20443715Oh ho. You'll have to tell me more about this over tea. I think you'll enjoy tea parties, they're one of my favorite activities.
You give them a quick tour of the ship- Fellwind knows most of it, but he follows, regardless, as Jeanne stares, at awe, at the various glowing crystals."You have a lot of magic stuff here." She said, eyes wide. "Can you show me that tea stuff?"You nod, and quickly set it up."What's your history, if you don't mind me asking? Did you grow up together, are you distant relatives?""My da' was a shipwright up in Sirius." She said. "So I learned his trade, but he said that wasn't a place for a woman. So I went down to Venus to build warships for 'em. Met Rik when he was stationed there, as a soldier. We had a brief fling, and then the hobs nabbed me. I spent a few years with the hobs, the portals closed, I went back to Venus. Some new High Lord had taken over, and he'd stopped the ship building- so I didn't know what to do with myself, and started wandering. Ended up at the cathedral, met Rik again.""I bet that shocked him.""It did." She said, and sipped her tea- with the pinky extended, as you taught her. "But he's completely changed since I first met him. His talent's been getting a lot worse lately, though. Stronger, maybe?"
rolled 72 = 72>>20443808you know, I never noticed a talent when we traveled together.what is it?
>>20443808"It seems like that's the case for a lot of people. Hmmm, I wonder if the talents are simply getting stronger with age, or if there's something afoot."What was his talent, exactly? Getting really angry isn't that impressive, unless you triple in size and turn green.
>>20443808Alright, guess I'll stop trying to "fix" her hands."I never learned much about his talent while he was traveling with me. What can you tell me about it?"
"It seems like that's the case for a lot of people. Hmmm, I wonder if the talents are simply getting stronger with age, or if there's something afoot." You say, putting a hand to your chin. "I never learned much about his talent while he was traveling with me. What can you tell me about it?""It's . . not really a talent. More like a curse." Fellwind said. "I'm like the orcs."". . Like the orcs is an apt description." Jeanne said. "He gets angry, he gets glowy, and rages out. The one time he got *real* bad, one of the knights had to fight him off. While he was raging, his wounds healed like *that*." She said, snapping her fingers. "Like a troll."
>>20443909Ooh, what colour does he glow?
>>20443909"Strange. At least you have it mostly under control."
>>20443909I would hate to see you have to do that Rikar. I'll do everything I can to make sure you don't have to aboard my ship. It doesn't sound like something you enjoy.As for Talents getting stronger I'm not sure if it's a personal thing where some are improving with age or if it is a more wide spread thing. I don't have enough cases of people's talents getting stronger.
>>20443909"Interesting. Perhaps you would do well in one of their tournaments?"Make a note to mention to Grayson later, about "smelling" dire magic from Rikar
>>20443909Maybe we should get some advice from the orks on how to deal with that talent? I'm sure they can help him cope with it.
"Ooh, what color does he glow?""White. Like pure, sparking white. Except the sparks fall upwards. Very magic."You suddenly remember the time you ran into the demons, and had created what you dubbed a 'wrath elemental'. It looked. . exactly the way she's describing it."Strange. At least you have it mostly under control.""Mostly." He said. "My vow helps with it a lot.""Can you tell me more about the vow?""It's not much." he said. "It's just an oath never to harm, always to heal. Because healing magic can be used to really hurt people, if done right. It can be. . reversed. We're only supposed to do that with rotting flesh, though."

>>20443991"I think I know what why the fire is white. It's... well it's rage. I've made elementals out of it before."
>>20443991Well it looks like you have some connection to Wrath. It resembles an elemental I made out of Wrath once, I was very annoyed at the time.Is the vow magically binding?
"I think I know why the fire is white." You say. "It's... well, it's rage. I've made elementals out of it before. I was very annoyed at the time.""That makes sense." She said. "I. . guess. I don't understand magic much. I just build ships. And punch demons, I guess."You nod, and turn to Fellwind."Is the vow magically binding?""No, no it's not." He said. "But the abbot makes sure only to teach people who takes oaths seriously." He said. "Because. . if something big enough happens that we're willing to forsake the vow, then it's big enough to use healing for harm."
>>20444082"If you'd like, I could try to make something that would suppress that rage."
>>20444082"That makes sense."
>>20444082Well I hope nothing like that ever happens.>inb4 it does
>>20444082Jeanne I want you to know you're a valued guest aboard my ship so if you need anything please don't be afraid to ask. I'll introduce you to everyone after some tea. Don't worry about the bear, Grayson is the gentlest, noblest bear you'll ever meet.
>>20444102IF we make a suppressor, it shouldn't actually suppress the emotion, just the talent.
>>20444129Obviously. We should probably test it out on an elemental first too.
"That makes sense." You say. "I want you two to know that you're valued guests aboard my ship, so if you need anything, please don't be afraid to ask.""Of course." She said. "If I have any problems, I'll bring them to you.""I'll introduce you to everyone after this." You say, sipping at your tea. She mimics your movement. "Don't worry about the bear. Grayson is the gentlest, noblest bear you'll ever meet.""You mean the one that was snoring and rolling around on his back in the flowers? It seemed very dignified." She said, chuckling.Soon enough, after tea, the sun slowly set as you introduced Fellwind and Jeanne to everyone.>Wat do?
>>20444238Go find a bar and get shitfaced.
Onward to the next place we're picking people up! Or failing that, to the other continent!
>>20444238Do we need to pick up people in the orc lands?
>>20444238Time to train, your highness.
"Well." You say, watching the setting sun, as Jeanne scratches behind Grayson's ear. "How about we move on to Sosaria?""Sosaria? We're going there?" Jeanne asked."Technically, we're going past Sosaria, to the ogrish lands, but we're stopping on the way." Ell said, shrugging."Fair enough." She said. "In truth, I don't care where we go- I just want to have an adventure with Rik."Ell reattunes the control crystal, and the compass, and Jormungandr sets off.". . .Let's train." You say."Of course, lady." Kristoph said. He drew his own blade. "Since we're on the ship, let's not try to disarm each other- sending a sword into the sea is a good way to lose swords."
>>20444387Can Jeanne teach us unarmed combat? Just an case we do get disarmed at some point in the future.
>>20444387I'll try not to. Though I could probably retrieve it with little trouble should it come to that.

But first, I need to check up on something.""Okay, I'll wait." He says.You look down to your ring. . and then look *through*.Your vision blurry, you see, Feegul in a small room, spear by his side. He looks to one side, and then the other, and then he looks out the window, where the other kobold warriors train."They're quite competant." A deep voice said, rumbling the room. Feegul looks to the other side, and there's a very large ogre standing there, three horns on his head and two eyes. A maul sat on the ground next to him."They are." Feegul said. You try to communicate through the ring, but nothing seems to work- apparently it's too far, or there's something blocking you.You pull away from the ring. The kobolds and Feegul are okay, and they're with some ogres."Are you ready now?" Kristoph asks, and you nod.He swings his blade down toward you, and you slip out of the way, spinning as you move, and the training begins.You grab his arm, pushing the sword in it away from you, and the tip of Rikar slides up against the underside of his armor plating. Put a bit more force into it, and you could pierce his heart.For a moment, both of you freeze, panting. Kristoph frowns. "Beaten by a girl." He grumbles.One of the lizardmen start to clap, and the other crew starts to follow up.

You roll your shoulders, ready... and then it begins. Kristoph takes the blade and does a long sweeping attack, using his blade's superior range to it's full benefit. You parry it with Rikar, the shortsword not jarring at all, due to the fact that it all but ignores the force put into Kristoph's blow. Almost faster than he can react, you bring your sword up- But not fast enough. He whips up his longsword and catches your edge with the blunt of his blade, backing away.You continue attacking, but he came up with a tactic that seemed to work- he would back up, staying out of the range of Rikar, and using his own longsword's range to keep you from even getting close. It ends up almost a battle of attrition, and he's definitely taking the brunt of it. .And then his back hits the edge of the ship. You bring Rikar up to bear, parry away his sword-And then he grabs your wrist with his other hand, mirroring what you'd done to him, and puts the edge of his blade to your neck.He starts panting, and takes off his helmet. "You try something like that in armor like this."
>>20444745"Heh, much better. I'll try not to make that mistake again."
rolled 38 = 38>>20444745stick our toung out at him. "you could try wearing lighter armor"
>>20444745That's precisely why I don't wear armour like that.
>>20444745I'm but a little girl, armor such as yours would simply not be appropriate. You did well my knight. I would enchant your armor but I don't think that would necessarily work well with your unique talent. We could look into more advanced metallurgy when we have the time, see if we can lighten the load that way.Pat him on the head.
"Heh, much better." You say. "I'll try not to make that mistake again. But that's precisely why I don't wear armor like that.""If you had a longer weapon, though, you would've won." He said. "Or magic.""You did well." You say, and pat him on the head. "I'd enchant your armor, but I don't think it'd work well with your unique talent.""Probably not." He said. "But I wear this heavy armor for a reason- it may be heavy, but there's nothing like steel for keeping your ribs intact. but that's because I fight like a knight. You fight like. . I don't know. Like you're dancing or something.""The style almost looks like it could be elven." Kiyara says. "But we use spears."". . I use a sword." Ell said, looking to his inactive golem suit. "Theoretically.""Yeah, but you fight like a knight, too. Or those demons with the big swords." Kiyara added.
>>20444844"Well, in that case I'm glad to have such diverse friends and sparring partners around."
>>20444844"Are you any good at fighting, Kiyara? I'd be interested to see the style."P.S. I wanna fight the golem.
rolled 48 = 48>>20444844hey ell, what all does the suit do? put it on I'd love to see how you fight...or would anyone else like to try fighting me? I'm a bit out of practice, spent the last couple of years too busy queening...
>>20444844Well it would hardly do for me to fight like a knight, I'd have to be taller and wear plate all the time. The helmet alone would just not work with my hair. I suppose I have Redglare's training to thank, I learned to fight in whatever way felt most natural to me.
rolled 19 = 19>>20444844The voices in Ishelda's head command her to summon a big block of carbon, spin it into the finest thread with magic, weave it into armor, and then cover it with resin.Bam, carbon fibre armor.

"Hey, Ell, what does the suit do?" You ask. "Put it on, I'd love to see how you fight.""Well. . it ends up with a lot of collateral damage, mostly." He said. "It's charged with as much power as a large airship, and puts all of that power into being strong. The sword alone weighs as much as is physically possible, even made denser with magic- it's charged to stay lighter, right now. But. . it's a bad idea to do here, on a ship. Maybe if we find an island, we can set down and test it.""And then we could rematch." Leon said. "With magic, this time."You look down over the edge- nothing but dark seas.Suddenly, the door belowdecks slams open, and Kaliel comes out, holding something in her hands...... A squirrel. It chitters, and she's grinning widely in the gloom.

"You managed to make it based on just seeing me transform into one once. That's amazing. It chitters and everything.""It won't be exactly right. . " She said. "The body's right, just not the mind. I had to base it off of a few rodents, and then teach it to climb trees. . "She hands it something, and the creature takes it in both paws and starts nibbling at it- a berry, it looks like."I, uh, didn't know what squirrels eat, so I made it omnivorous.""So fluffy!" You say, and then you hug Kaliel.She looks like she's going to protest for a moment, and then gives up and hugs you back, as the squirrel leaps onto her shoulder and continues nibbling.

>>20445183It's not licking. It's a kiss, it's a display of affection. The location of the place kissed can indicate the level of affection being shown.
"No, you're just so cute. I can't help it." you say, and giggle. "It's a kiss, it's a display of affection. Don't worry. The location of the place kissed can indicate the level of affection being shown.""O-oh." She said, nodding, and clumsily trying to get out of your arms. The squirrel chittered angrily as Kaliel's shoulder shifted "Okay. Is there anything else from Arcturus you'd want me to make?"
>>20445270Well you could try cows and goats, not right now of course, but when we get back to New Arcturus after this they could make good livestock.

>>20445270"No. Not right now. You've already made me incredibly happy by creating that squirrel. Let's try not to make me too happy, too fast."
>>20445270We need a kitten. Kittens are the cutest. It can be white. It won't exactly be a kitten because Kaliel made it and the mind will be wrong as well and maybe it will escape when we're not looking and call itself by the name it heard before it left - "Ishelda".

Fellwind said."Our farmers have goats- when they end up eating the galadriel's light, they sometimes turn into dire goats. Much larger." Kiyara said."But other than that, I can't think of anything in particular. You've already made me incredibly happy by creating that squirrel. Let's try not to make me too happy, too fast. There's no telling what I might do.""Yeah. . " She said. "We wouldn't want that.""Maybe a dog or cat. .""Cats? I have a cat." She said. "Back at Sardriel's tower, I mean, and very attached to Dariel She's tiny and fluffy and striped. I made it after Azariel explained them to me."

Just saying but we should ask how Bubbles is doing.
>>20445381Agreed, and what's Kell up to?
>>20445410>Kell stayed back at New Arcturus, to serve as Marigold's bodyguard."Fluffer than Dariel?""Of course not." She says. "Nothing's fluffier than Dariel. At least, until a few years from now. Then he won't be fluffy.""You'll have to show her to me some time. What's her name?""Her name is Sio." She said. "Neiriel named her. I'll show you when we get back."You nod, and turn to Ell."How's bubbles doing?" You ask him. He shrugs."No clue." He said. "He asked to be given to Kyvann, right before we left. But that's fine, I can still see magic without it.""You can see magic?" Kristoph asked."Yeah, it's like. . in the air and everything." Ell said. "Before, I couldn't even see ambient magic. .but now I can.""Can you see. . " He said, closing his eyes. "This?"Ell is perfectly silent for a moment, staring up at the air above kristoph. ". . How are you *doing* that?""My talent. It's gotten stronger." Kristoph said.
>>20445443What does the anti-magic field look like Ell?
>>20445443Can you form the AntiMagic field into the shape of a sword or something, Kristoph?
"What does the anti-magic field look like, ell?""Well, normally, magic blows around the air like currents, blowing with the wind as it wills." Ell said. "You're a strange nexus of purple stuff, Fellwind over there has his heart beating with white sparks, and Grayson is brown and earthy. . but Kristoph's power is. . I don't have a word to explain it. It's like. . it's not a color. It's an un-color or something. Shaped like a bubble."

>>20445470It seems like everyone's talents are improving. It could be because of everyone growing and changing as a person, but I'm thinking there's another cause to all of this.I wonder how Grayson has improved.
>>20445470"Interesting. Hey Kristoph, try and focus it onto your sword. I bet that would be a powerful combination."
"So far, it would seem *everyone's* talents are getting stronger. Growing with age, it seems, and augmented by emotions, like love and anger, for example.""Or honor." Kristoph said."It could be because of everyone growing and changing as a person... but I'm thinking there's another cause to all of this."Jeanne looked up."The demons." She said. Everyone looked to her. "Like, the hob battlecasters knew that demons ate magic, right? They'd make lures, and spelltraps that just gave off magic and coax the demons to breach right there. What if, when the portal closed. . .they stopped eating magic?"
>>20445519"Maybe. It's certainly feasible."
>>20445519"I'd guess we are in for some very interesting times if that's the case. Good thinking, Jeanne."
"I'd guess we are in for some very interesting times if that's the case. Good thinking, Jeanne."She grinned, and nodded."Hey, Kristoph, try and focus it onto your sword. I bet that would be a powerful combination.""I'll try, I guess." He said, and focused.". . You're not doing that too well." Ell said. "You still have a bubble. It's just. . stretched, now.""Thank you for your helpful information." Kristoph said, sarcastically"You're welcome." Ell said, grinning. You have the feeling that he's perfectly sincere.Kristoph sighed, and suddenly opened his eyes. "I'm exhausted." He said.Ell chuckled again. "Hey, ladies, if you want to cast spells on Kris, now's the time. Magic is passing through him normally, now. I think his resistance is gone."
>>20445608"Huzzah!"Poke him in the ribs with magic.
>>20445608It'd be rude to. I think we should let him get some sleep. He can take a nap alongside Grayson, I think Grayson would be willing to part with some of his well earned advice about napping.
rolled 74 = 74>>20445608Oooh oh uh hmm.... Hmmmmmmm..............Make his hair wave and look like fire? The same colour his eyes are?
>>20445630Seconded. He sparred with us, and helped us improve. Kristoph deserves his sleep.But I'm kinda curious of Raziel is going to do something.
"It'd be rude." You say. "He can take a nap alongside Grayson, I think Grayson would be willing to part with some of his well earned advice about napping."Grayson, however, was not napping. He was standing straight up, staring directly at Jeanne, his eyes serious. For a moment, he wasn't the fuzzy, lovable, noble bear you'd seen before, but a wild beast. And then it faded, and he looked away."Hmm. . " Raziel said. "I have something.""Uh. . " Kristoph took a step back."Kaliel, help me remove his armor."". . What?" She asked.She grinned. "We're turning you into a kalak."Kristoph froze for a moment, and then ran below-deck.
>>20445608Muss his hair with magic."Go get some sleep Kristoph. I never thought I'd be saying anything like this, but you don't have very much magical stamina yet. You need to practice a lot to do anything really cool with your talent.
>>20445687Snicker, turn to Jeanie, "What was that about?"
>>20445687Ask Grayson what happened there.
>>20445687I assure you Kristoph it's fun. They're going to turn you back, probably.Then visit Grayson, give him a hug and try to communicate with him. If something is up with our closest companion we need to investigate.
"I go down normally, you go through the outside." Raziel said, and Kaliel nodded. "Transmute through the wall."Kaliel leapt off of the ship, sliding through the shield, and turned into a kalak, wings spread. Raziel leapt down below deck.You snicker, and then turn to Grayson. You give him a hug. "What happened there?""I. . . don't know." Grayson huffed, in a low tone. "Something is wrong. Something with the cycle. She was right. Too much magic, here."
>>20445751You still haven't even told me what the cycle is so I don't think I can help there.Does Fellwind's talent smell of Dire magic to you?
>>20445751"Here specifically or just in general?"
>>20445751By here do you mean the world or the ship?I know that you once told me your duty was to make sure the cycle continue, could you try to explain it to me?
>>20445751"Could that be my fault?"
>>20445751I'll fix it. It's what I do.
"Here specifically, or just in general?""In general." He mumbled. "Talents are getting stronger. Magic, more powerful. More dire beasts will appear. Weather will turn strange. Portals to other realms will open. . I do not know how I know these things.""Could that be my fault?""Yes.""I know that you once told me your duty was to make sure the cycle continued.. could you try to explain it to me?""No." He said.

>>20445922How do you propose to burn marble?
>>20445851"...I kinda wanna annex it."
>>20445922They shall know the price of being shinier than our kingdom. Ezekiel, summon the meteors. >>20445940Really hot fire, or Magic.
>>20445851How do you even keep this schedule? You've only missed 2 days in the past 4 months. And it runs in the perfect time slot of 7pm-1am in Britland which means it must be at some awkward time in the middle of the day for an American, which I assume you are by the spelling.
rolled 11 = 11>>20446000here it's 1PM to 7AMat least in the center portions of America
rolled 72 = 72>>20446031shit thats wrong.1PM to 7PM
>>20446031I think you mean 7PM.
>>20446031>here it's 1PM to 7AMBut the threads aren't 18 hours long.
rolled 78 = 78>>20446046but wouldn't that be amazing?
>>20446000Normally, it ran from noon to 5-6 for me. And now it runs from 11 AM to 4-5 PM. Also, I'm sure I missed more than 2 days.And to answer your question, it's because I have no life in particular, and I'm also quite insane.I'm not quite sure why I haven't burned out yet- I was close, near the start of SCQ, but that passed quickly.
>>20446057Just like a marathon runner <3Now eat your oats and do your squats.
rolled 34 = 34>>20446057variety is the spice of lifea change of venue is what you needed.>I'm also quite insane.lots of us would like to think that, but are you really? like psychiatrists and all? just curious...>those times you live on the west coast, or in alaska 2 hours behind me or so...
>>20446052Nope. Exabyte wouldn't have any time for planning or anything but questing and sleep and the quality would deteriorate massively.>>20446057>Also, I'm sure I missed more than 2 days.Well I didn't include the breaks between quests, because that's not missing them. But I went through suptg and counted the archive dates. I may have missed one or two but it's certainly not a big number.>11 AM to 4-5 PMWhen do you have lunch?
>>20446126Listen.I've done a hundred and ten quest threads, or thereabouts, once a day every day, with few notable breaks.You can't tell me that's not the actions of a madman.But no, I'm not really insane. That's just tongue-in-cheek.>>20446131Usually right before I start, or I make some fingerfood instead and eat during. I don't eat a lot.
>>20446163You probably do have some mental health problems. Maybe you should go get diagnosed to get free government money.
rolled 43 = 43>>20446163nah, it sounds like the actions of someone with a hobby or routinefor the last 5 years I have gone out at 9 o clock every night rain, sleet, and even occasionally hail. and walked 5 miles staff in hand. I'm not a madman, I just have nothing to do of an evening and no social life; plus the moon is normally nice and bright. SO you can be a madman if I can be a lunatic.but I see your point yes
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein
>>20446316He's not expecting different results though, is he? He just likes doing the thing.
>>20446335Then he is not insane.
>>20446346According to a physicist who knows jack about psychology and was just making an amusing remark.
rolled 27 = 27>>20446406modern psychiatry is a load of crock anyway. just for pushing pills for money and pacifying the people of a country.
>>20446423Oh, psychiatry has ever been anything else?
>>20446335>>20446346>>20446406>>20446423>PROFESSIONAL OPINIONS THAT REALLY MATTER!
>>20446423I still think a guy who runs around screaming and scratching at walls and killing people is insane even if he doesn't do the same thing and expect different results, so >>20446346 is a fallacious conclusion.
>>20446432I'm a trained psychiatrist physicist brain surgeon rocket scientist, fuck off if you don't like it.
Well I'm sure Exabyte has less voices in his head then Ishelda, and she can approximate sanity.
>>20446485I'm the only person in the entire world more qualified and experienced and trained than you, and I'm also your boss. You fuck off.
>>20446553You can't fire me, I quit.
>>20446568In that case, I'll turn into a jet and bomb you!
>>20446568Good luck finding another ridiculously specialized practice!
>>20446581Good job losing the second best person in your company over a stupid internet fight, genius. It's not like I'm replaceable, you already said you were the only one better than me.
