Airship Rising Dawn - Training Room
Garm | Lucifer | Rodem | Teri <-- Very true, wouldn't be much to a panther, now would it?

"If we could go to the infirmary... I think my hand could use a bit of work"

The Cleric gave a small nod, "Of course... Wouldn't want your hand to stay like that. Garm, come on."

And so, the trio quietly wandered to the infirmary, a calm silence falling over them as they went.

"To rebuild Aperture science. they have countless facilities there and since i took Viscus, we have all the data on the cartel. We know how to build up and do what you want. I know you can lead others to great things. You deserve more than to just be a floor manager, and i want my own thing, but i lack the skills to lead it. Thats why i'm asking you to join me." she said to him.


"....Is that right?..." Wesker said, somewhat shocked at Dani's brashness in taking on the Cartel.
Even if she had Viscus on her side, the matter remained of the Cartel's current power, Viscus's attack on other leading Defense Contractors was prove of that.
"....While the offer is tempting, I must decline...." He said, shattering Dani's hopes.
"...I mustn't also tell you that the Aperture Science Reboot Code, to have the lab repair itself, is 1099, the Moon Base Teleport Code is 1994, that there is a spare Mainframe full of un-recorded Biological Weapons in the CEO's office behind the fish-tank and I most CERTAINLY mustn't tell you that the contact number of yours truly is 555-G0DT13R. I mean, that would lead to all kinds of nasty leaks of information of this facility..." He then added with a smirk on his face as he pushed up his glasses.
"While I might not be able to leave right now, I assure you, there is nothing I can do to assist your mad scheme..."

Lucieon | Rugal

Luke smiled, his teeth were white and straight, and the twinkle in his blue eyes intensified, "Find me, and I'll drag you into the depths of hell with me." Then before Rugal could say anything more, Luke pulled his hand from that captain's grip and turned to return to his room, "but hopefully we won't have any trouble, Sir Captain. And, one last thing," he raised his hand into the air to how him his orange tattoo, "do well not to think too lowly of me. Murder, cannibalism, grand theft, political corruption, I've seen just as much as you have."

He smiled to himself, after all, I'm just as human as everyone else.


Jenny was resting in one of the bed after her attack when Teri and Lucifer came in.
She sensed them enter and woke herself up to greet them.
"Hmmmm...Hey, you two...I just can never seem to get out of this room..." She teased as she sat herself up and wiped her eye a little.
"So is it gone?..."


"Best get my spot warmed up when we get there then. And that's "Sir Captain Bernstein" to you!" Rugal responded with a grin, clearly Lucieon made a good impression on the King of Fighters.
When he showed off his tattoo, he scratched the side of his face to bring attention to his Bionic eye.
"This eye has seen a lot indeed, but there'll be time your eye test soon enough. I'll enjoy working with you, Mr. Lucieon..."
Compared to the usual gang on this ship, it was nice to meet another of his kind to break the mold.

"That is a real shame." she said catching on quickly. "I mean, now i most certainly won't be able to create a power suit to use, that was only possible with your help. I mean can't make use of titanium, nano muscle cloth or any sort of compact high output power core if i got a hold of them somehow. I mean, access to the microscopic labs would be pointless since you're not getting involved. I also wouldn't bother drawing any plans for machines to be made for me if i passed them along to someone. I'm right buggered." she said smiling at him. Things were going to be good.

"Yeah...Not like Viscus could assist you with those, He's basically me but a AI. And it's not like my Motivated Staff get names wrong on delivery forms, send orders to the wrong place. But you know what's REALLY unlikely? someone getting out of the base using the Delivery Pods..." Wesker added, not telling Dani how to hotwire a pod and not telling her which guards to get past and NOT telling her about the blind spot in Camera Surveillance next to the Stairs in the Storage Room.
"...Just be clever about your moves and actions, if you start your own organisation, Rugal will be watching..." He finally warned, Dani having plenty of Memories of him of all people.

"Yes, i understand the risks. You should head back, i'll discuss plans with viscus about things." she said and laid back on her bunk.

She closed her eyes and entered a state that looked like sleeping. Meanwhile, inside of her, she appeared before viscus in a tiny interrogation like room. "Well Viscus. You're going to be locked in here until we get to aperture. But, i would like to make some ties on you. Just a few safety precautions." She said. "You ok with this? Or are we going to have to do this the hard way?"


The AI shook his head at Dani's idea of "Safety's"
"In case your memory units are corrupted, that was exactly the reason why I seeked your help in escaping! And if I was going to attack you from the inside, I would have done it already..." He explained as he glared at Dani.
"...Look, even with Wesker help, even before Rugal, AIM was one of the most dangerous forces on the planet, I should know, I built it. But with Rugal at the helm, it's not a matter of if, but when. All my calculations show that."

"This room isn't the idea of safety i have Viscus, this is." She said as chains came up and bound him. Walking forward, the girl looked over him. "This won't hurt, it will just give me a few extra bindings to you." she said and stabbed her hand into his body. Fro where she stabbed into, his colorings changed and expanded to look like aperture's colors and symbols. "It ties me to you and grants me rights over you. Long story short, i can yank on your leash at any time." She said and released him.


Viscus was...Less then pleased by this arrangement, but like he had a choice in the matter.
"...I have no choice but to comply, but once you get your organisation off the ground, I will push for a re-negotiation of this deal. By then, I'm certain you will have mined my data banks and found several other AI Cores in the remains. Like you, I have my own goals and being in here isn't one of them." He said as he glared at her, the last few days were a massive fall for him, first getting beaten by those low level AI's on the Rising Dawn, now this.

Airship Rising Dawn - Hallway outside Med Bay
Aftan | Akane | Gabrielle | Devon

Devon exited the room to watch Ella run off when he saw the three Knights walk near him looking like they'd been through a war zone. Still in that same uniform, he approached the three. "Mind if I help you three clean up? It'll only take a second." Before they could really get a word in edgewise, he casted the Prestidigation on the three. It felt a bit like a brisk scrubbing, but the end results were clear - the three had been cleaned off without too much difficulty. Any damage to their clothes hadn't changed, but they were certainly clean!

Airship Rising Dawn - Main Hallway
Lupito | Slindis | Lucieon | Rugal <-- I doubt well fed if Bruiser was only castrated!!

Slindis walked with Lupito and overheard the tail end of the conversation, feeling an odd, tainted presence on the ship. As she approached Rugal and the new undead merchant, she became fairly cautious. After all, she'd just fought the odd shadow creature.

She came closer to the two, and both merchants could feel the Aura of Good emanating from the Paladin. "Excuse me for asking, but who is this? Someone that claims to be a new member of the ship?" A low growl started to come from the rather large wolf at the drow's side, and he clearly didn't feel comfortable with either merchant for differing reasons.


Rugal turned to Slindis after his talk with Luke.
"Oh him? Lucieon, just waltzed in like everything else around here. A Merchant by trade, One of Red Mage's old friends, the ones that didn't want to kill the Gods, seemed to have cleared him. I'll be watching him, that's for sure..." He explained as Lutipo Growled.
"...Seems like your friend isn't keen of him. Still, I know his kind, He'll keep to himself figuring out how the hell everything works. Still kinda surprising we don't get more Tech-savvy visitors these days..."


"Viscus, i'm not an unforgiving asshole. Earn my trust and i'll let you off the leash. You'll have all the freedoms you wish from the start as limiting you only hampers any abilities you could offer me. You'll have enough rope to hang yourself so to speak. But only once we get you installed in the aperture systems. You'll be running the facility, with my ties to you allow me to control it as well." Dani said to him. "So it also lets me do things i otherwise couldn't while in this body. You can do whatever you please, so long as you follow orders and work for the goal of us, you can have a very long leash." she finished on and began to work on designs infront of him.

Lupito | Slindis | Lucieon | Rugal

Luke stopped when Slindis addressed him... it was strange, but he could feel the aura of a paladin, something he had very bad experiences with. There was a undead paladin back in Cataclama, who used to invade him at every twist and turn, trying to steal back the humanity that Luke had supposedly stole from him. It always ended badly for one of them, and the last encounter ended with both of them plummeting off castle battlements back into the lower city.

The wolf also unnerved him, legends spoke of a great Grey Wolf that protected the forests outside of the city, one such he had slain, and ensured the smell of wolf-blood still stained his armor even after a hundred or so years. So Luke answered very tentatively to the Drow Paladin's question, "Eh..."

At which point Rugal kindly answered for him, and Luke was greatly relieved. yet he still felt obligated to defend his character and answer the holy warrior's question, after all, with this many soft humanities stored inside his body, not even the best passive detection could have pegged him as undead, "My name is Lucieon, but I go by Luke, Luke of Great Fortune is my preferred title... but everyone calls me Lucieon of Surplus Gold. I'll be procuring repair material and funding for this adventuring party in absence of it's original proprietor. And don't worry, I'm definitely not evil."

Luke backed up sheepishly before disappearing around a corner.

Airship Rising Dawn - Medical Bay
Charlie | Jenny | Lucifer | Melethia | Teri

Having heard the commotion from earlier, a young elven girl entered the Medical Bay from the ventilation shaft. "Hmm, the stuff I looked at said the stuff in here was supposta be be really good, but there's not really all that much to be wowed with... I mean, they've got chemicals, but what's that supposta do? None of it's got the kinda punch for what I need it for." A quick look around the room showed her a man that she hadn't seen here before, and something about him felt... well, it was hard to place for the young elf, but it was normal for her, which told her that the man decidedly wasn't normal. She also saw Firebrand in one of those odd chambers and looked the chamber over from where she was.

Airship Rising Dawn - Medical Bay Corridor
Aftan | Akane | Gabrielle | Devon

Devon sighed. "Well, Aftan, she's trying to push me away for some reason. I tried asking her what the issue was, but I couldn't get much of anything. And Gabrielle, sorry about interrupting the recreation time. I didn't mean to ruin anything for you." The man looked a bit dejected in the Yokai Academy uniform and more than a bit lost as well.

"Other than that, the day's been a normal one for me since I joined the ship here. Right now, I'm just looking for something to do."


Viscus let out a dull electronic sigh, out of one prison and into another.
"....Very well. Just know that this is not a permanent arrangement, Though I will comply..." He answered defeatedly, Already starting to work on a way out of here, if he could arrange for Rugal to be killed, he could get out of this.
"....Also, you dropped a "0" in the Blueprint layouts for the Office Room East Wall."

"Oh go blow it out your electrons." Dani said checking the designs.

"Everything is fine, i didn't forget." She said then looked at him. "I don't understand why you're not happy with the arrangements. You can do whatever you want in a laboratoy facility larger than aim's bunker. I only care if you help me out with my goals every once in a while. If you're truly not happy with this, then i'll let you go after you restart all the systems in the place." She said rather calmly and sincerely. "i'm not a control freak."


"That will have to do." Viscus coldly answered, Dani learning the downsides of dealing with a Killer AI with no emotions like her.
"Even if the Lab is larger then AIM's and completely self-sufficient, The Cartel still Controls over 60% of the global Firearms Market. Admittedly, I was responsible for that..." He explained as he showed some footage of Strike Teams he sent out to attack Defense Contractors during the opening stages of the War with Tomoya, leaving AIM the sole remaining seller to the US Army.

"That's why i'd like to have you on my team. I don't necessarily plan on taking over the worlds economy, but rather crush it with a new one of my own." She said, moving onto designing her suit.
"And Viscus, how easily can you slip in past their detection programs? I mean the ones in this bunker." she asked him.

Chapter 5 Intro: The Game of Battleship and The Five Kings.

Archangel Michael.
Location: Jupiter | Small Fire Angel Fleet.

The Archangel of Fire had readied his small fleet, although he knows that this simple and small army is not enough ot defeat the much larger and evil fleet. Michael knows that his army has superior technology, but he doesn't have the numbers to overcome the battle. Clenching his fist the Archangel knows that many other people will be sacrificed so that the Earth... no, so that life may be saved.

"So be it... I will ask. No I have to tell them!" Michael says to himself as he let the embers of hope and power consume him and take him to where the heroes roam in his spiritual form.

Some space travel later. Rising Dawn. (I'm doing this so we can advance the plot)

The spirit of the Archangel of Fire formed like a raging inferno in the Rising Dawn hangers, the spirit emerged from it's hiding spot and boldly headed towards the war room (We have that right?) of the Rising Dawn. The groups or people who saw the spirit could only see a human figure made of a raging fire, the figure also had wings which spread across the hallway.

Surely those curious enough would find themselves before the Archangel either yelling or asking or something else. The Archangel had already made his way into the war room and grabbed the intercom.

"Umm... ahem. Good morning everyone, we need to have a meeting in the war room ASAP. We need to end this business with Tomoya...

An unknown voice announced itself over the speakers of the ship. The Archangel sat down on the couch and began to wait for most or all of the crew to come in. Then he would tell them that they must form an army to rival Tomoya's fleet so they can end this once and for all.

"I wonder if I should time them... " The Archangel Michael smiled as he was glad he came in his spirit form instead of his actual form. Then the first tall man entered the room.

"You... but arn't you-"

Dark Tomoya.
Location: Blackhawke | Archangel Armada | Around the Moon.
Weather: Black lightning.

The Dark Archangel now Demon Prince had retired to his chambers, he had already made his plan. Take out the whole world with a black hole generator (This is so we can make things exciting, but don't worry it won't do anything practical) which he had his science (Deus Ex) team make when he was away in Alaska.

Demon Prince Tomoya looked over the Earth once more and sighed.
Right now he just despised the place.
He wanted it gone.
He wanted his goal.
But that puny planet is all that stood in his way.

"They need to die." The Demon Prince simply said as he relaxed and meditated for a few more hours until he would ready for combat.

His armor would be polished with blood.
His shadows lusted for evil.
And his wings slashed the air like butter.

All of him waits patiently to kill again.
That's what it said to him.

Storm-178 (Un-armored).
Location: Rising Dawn, War Room | DC, America.
Time: 11 Am.

Storm smiled as he leaned against the wall next to the archangel. "Yeah I know... bodyguard to an evil archangel. Hopefully I got that smell off." Huffed Storm as decided to look outside and waited for the rest of the crew to come in. Hopefully no one would recognize him and that the smell from the short shower he just took eradicated all scent of evil, angel, dark angel and Tomoya on him.

"Don't worry, I go all of that corruption out of me. I'm with you guys now... but I think I know what is behind all of this." Said Storm said he looked towards the spirit of the Archangel, the angel was now interested in what the spartan has to say. The two started to discuss everything they had learnt until the first few came.



After his shift of menial labor, fencing instruction, and general morale boosting (his throat still sore from having to sing as much as he did) was ended, Inuart wasted no time in hurrying to Furiae's side to deliver the bracers of the serum.

Upon arriving to the med-bay, breathing a little heavily from running from the performance hall, the young woman looked up from a book she was reading and gave a light gasp of surprise,

"Inuart! Goodness, you've nearly made me jump out of my skin!... Is something wrong?"

The bard shook his head, a smile still wide on his face as he approached, the bracers extended towards the young woman, "See these? They're loaded with serum to keep that 'other' side well away! We just need to refill them every so often. Now, it is a temporary measure for now, but Cortex already said he was devising a cure! Don't you see, Furiae? You can live a normal life again! No Goddess Seal, no worries about doing things for the 'better of mankind', none of that!"

He moved to gently attach the bracers to his lady-love (at least, in his eyes), the woman wincing faintly when she felt the needles inject in her skin. Afterwards, Inuart continued rambling about what could be done in the future, to which Furiae nodded silently as he went. However, what the man did not notice, that the woman did, was a large, purple, brutish looking man being wheeled, curses lacing his every sentence as he was laid on the bed.


Furiae couldn't help but wonder what had caused the man so much pain, and felt a mild pang of sympathy for him. Oh, if only you knew, princess...

Airship Rising Dawn - Medical Bay
Charlie | Jenny | Lucifer | Melethia | Teri

She looked over at the man and started rifling through the chemicals there. "Well, Mister, I'mm just lookin' for some stuff here. Nothin' too interestin' to ya. Just some reagents and acids, ya know. Stuff to try out. Used up lots of my stock there in that last fight against those cultists followin' those kinslayers."

After a search where she takes various medical chemicals which could easily be turned to more vicious means, she turns to Charlie. "So, whatcha doin' here? I haven't seen ya here before." She looked at the man, taking in all the details she could with her eyes.

Airship Rising Dawn - Medical Bay Corridor
Aftan | Akane | Gabrielle | Devon

Devon shrugged. "For starters, just call me Devon. Honestly, you've probably done a lot more than I have, and I haven't earned anything of the sorts yet. However, I will take you up on that offer. I get the feeling there's a lot I could pick up from you two, even if it doesn't involve destroying Chrysalis at Call of Duty." Heading off to keep him busy would probably be the right idea, and that meditation later would help him keep calm.


As he and Slindis conversed, Rugal heard the call from the Intercom.
"What?...Ugh, Again? Just a few motion senors or at least some mobile alerts! Does anyone even know who that is!?...*Sigh* Come on, I bet it's going to be important..." He sighed as he led Slindis towards the Meeting.
End of the war, huh?...I best make that Supply request... He thought as he ordered another drop pod with a special request.


Jenny was once again awoken by Micheal's message and yawned as she pulled herself from her bed.
"*YYYYYYYYYYYAAAWWWWNNNN*...Well, guess I best make a appearance..." She groaned as she took a moment to steady herself before making her way to the meeting.
Ugghhhh...War is hell... she thought, her mind tired from the events of the last few days.


"zzzzzzzz-WAH! I'M AWAKE!" David panicked as he he suffered the mother of all hangovers.
"...Shit! Shadow and that Injection!" He thought as he got dressed and waded out of his room full of empty bottles to find the Merc.
He wasn't about to let himself get beaten by that Angel again!

AIM: Viscus

Viscus perked up at her mention of "Crushing" the World Economy, compared to Rugal's "Conquering!"
"I designed them and as good as that copy of me you planted is, there is only one Viscus." He said as he brought up a map of the Bunker and got to work on creating a means for Dani to escape.

AIM: Bruiser

Inuart and Furiae watched as Bruiser was forcefully sedated, enough to dull the pain and more then enough to shut him up.
He was rather badly mauled by Rodem, even his tough skin was torn up by the Panther's Claws and Teeth.
He took rapid pained breathes as he shook his head.
"He..Can't...He Can't do this to ME! Ohhhhhh...I'll show them...I'LL SHOW THEM ALL!" He shouted as held his hands over where his manhood used to be.
"...Yeah...Just like that...Heheheh..." He lingeringly laughed.
He was going to make Rugal rule this day...

"Good, I'll need you to get some parts manufactured for me. Also, i'd need a list of those who have recently got on Rugal's bad side in the cartel. That's possible, right?" She asked him, slipping along blueprints for machines and objects beyond human comprehension and ways of thinking.

Command Room.
As Bison was watching over the screens of the command center, someone walked into the room. He was about to turn, but then heard that dreaded voice. "Suuuuup." Said the crimson fucker.
Bison turned around to see alucard standing there with his hands in his pockets.

AIM: Viscus

"I can arrange those parts, but there is no need for the list..." Viscus said before sending in a request under a dummy corporation ran by the Cartel, He found most of the Production lines barely notice these things.
"...But I need names of people who'd Angered Rugal..."
"Then you need the entire Roster at this base, he's not keen on anyone..."

AIM: Bison

Oh for the love of...
"Hello Alucard, break anything expensive today?"
Bison deadpanned as he attempted to get on with his work, the screens bringing up the aftermath of the Battle for Washington DC.
"Tell me, What exact position did Rugal appoint you? I'll try and find something for you to do."

Inside Dani.
"I'm talking about anyone who has angered him and been dealt with. anyone still alive that would hate him inside the cartel." She said. Meanwhile, she was also running simulations of how the most effective way to deal with anyone in her path.

"Oh, nothing, you know; Just a few priceless vases. They had some weird tasting chocolate milk mix in them. For some reason, there were pictures of cats and dogs on them. What kind of fucking company makes animal themed chocolate milk?" He said then heard the second question. "Dafuck if i know. i just take walks and fuck bitches. Mainly the big tittied police girl." He added quickly.

AIM: Viscus

"There is Bruiser the Machoke, he was recently castrated by him about a hour ago..."
While this was big news to Dani, given that Luna was part of her, it was clear this meant little to nothing to Viscus.
"Perhaps this was a response to past transgressions against the Cartel. He seems to have been enraged by the process."

AIM: Bison

"....You drank Rodem's Chocolate Milk!?..." Bison said in horror after hearing that.
"Ohhhh man...if Rodem is unhappy, Rugal is unhappy, if Rugal is unhappy, people die..." He explained, revealing to Alucard that Rodem actually had some sake in the operations here.
"Just...Get him a steak or something, didn't get much meat off Bruiser...."

She perked up at this news. "He'd probably be right buggered up now. He cares about his lower package more than life itself. Hopefully i can pick him up in a bit." She said, thinking of allies she could make. "You can have access to my wifi ports to send orders and such." She said and went back to planning.

"Rugal? kill me? there's only one person who can stop me. I can't seem to remember his name though... what was it? Mr. McDoesntexist..." Alucard said and leaned on a console, hitting a number of buttons and setting off a number of alarms.

AIM: Viscus

"Noted, though knowing Bruiser, he'll make his own trouble without any prompting from us." Viscus explained as Bruiser swore revenge in the Medical Bay and Viscus was pretty sure how.

AIM: Bison

"Huh? Oh yeah? Well what about the rest of u-DON'T PUSH THAT!" Bison shouted before Alucard set off the Fire Alarm, The Attack Siren and the Self Destruct Countdown all at once.
Panic filled the base for a second until Bison shut them down and said over the intercom "FALSE ALARM, GET BACK TO WORK!"
Turning back to Alucard, clearly annoyed, He then asked " good is your mental shielding?..."

"Mental shielding?" Alucard said, now eating a chicken wing from a bucket of Kfc that he now had. "If you mean my mind. *schluck chew chew swallow* Then don't go there. You'll get eaten alive." He said, shifting and hitting a few more buttons, not really caring that he did. The vampire stuck a full drummy in his mouth and pulled it out, bone as clean as a whistle.

And with alucard's history and the amount of people he absorbed, his mind was a minefield. Not only his memories, but a completely and utterly shattered mess of memories from thousands of souls. Certainly not a place you would want to mess around with.

Rugal, Slindis

She chuckled at Rugal's comment as they proceeded. "You talk as if I have any control who gets on this ship or not, Rugal. I don't know exactly what this meeting's supposed to be about, but I have to say this is the oddest command structure of any group I've ever been with. Honestly, does the command shift over each day of the week? And they wonder why they're always reacting to the events that are happening..."


He heard the call come over the intercom, but he was far more interested in the current message that appeared with a small laptop without the folding screen. He pushed a button on the keyboard area and a holographic screen popped up with the coordinates of where it would be warped in along with the unit loadout. Like always, the massive carrier would be manned with androids build specifically for combat, and they had been modified to withstand EMP blasts.

The units on the ship were myriad, ranging from standard machines that would be well-suited to a regular pilot all the way to machines that would be directly linked to the pilot's movements and benefit greatly from the use of Ki. With a few exceptions, there was a machine for every person on the Rising Dawn should they choose to head out, and supplementary AIs would help those not so used to piloting machines.

Rugal, Slindis

"I'm guessing that's the case, I mean, that's how I came to be captain!" Rugal pointed out the irony of the ship's security.
"Still, While they are unorganized, You would be wise not to oppose them. While that lack in punctuality, they make up for in results. I've yet to see them fail to defeat whomever tries their luck..." He said, recalling just how hard it was to defeat the crew here.
"Yeah...real heroes here..." He trailed off, All these powerful people and his men were either backstabbers or-


"-STUPID IN-COMPLIANT FOOLS! THAT WAS NOT A REAL DRILL!" Bison shouted as alerts like "Missile Strike" or "Lets do the Time Warp again!" started to flash across the entire bunker while Alucard enjoyed his KFC.
"Grrrr...If I can survive what goes on in Doom's mind, you shouldn't be a problem!" He growled as his eyes glowed purple.
He then attempted to enter the mind of the Vampire and at the very least get him to stop being such a idiot.

And back to Rugal

Snapping out of this trance, He then asked "Tell me...Are you..."Happy" here?...", curious as to if she was going to stay with this madmen after this War was over.

Rugal, Slindis

She looked over at Rugal as they continued making their way down to the meeting area. "Honestly, I don't have much of a connection with anyone on this ship other than a scant few, my daughter and Teri being among them. You know how it is when you travel so much: not many know what's happened, and it's easier to keep the information to yourself. Still, at the end of the day, something's going to happen and there will be the need for someone competent to get the job done. I just wish they would get over the petty quarreling sooner so we could be more proactive. If I'd worked with people like that back home, the place would have fallen much sooner."

She was clearly frustrated as she continued. "Yet they can always count on those Khyber-taken resets of theirs, which means they're free to drag their feet while the death count soars! It doesn't matter how skilled someone is if they're consistently late to the fight, and that's what's happening here! I'd rather work with a less skilled group, because they'd know that they have to move before things go to Khyber, and they'd not automatically assume that there's some contrived warping of time that will stop every flaw they make! It happened with that blasted Red Mage, it happened with that blasted Daniel, and it's happening again! The pattern will keep repeating itself, mark my words. and when they prove to be a bit later than usual, there won't be a chance to reset their errors."

Rugal, Slindis

"...I see...." Rugal answered as he considered her answer to his question.
"...I guess this sort of environment wouldn't suit Melethia all that much either. While she has her mothers spirit, She can't grow up like this, going from warzone to warzone..." He added, sneaking in a silent complement to Slindis as he did.
He really did seem to care.
"Once this is over, I say we make it u-"
"...Sorry, You should bring her someplace less...."Viscous"..." He corrected himself, hoping she wouldn't follow up on it.
