Team Blackwater

The student rubbed his nose, scowling indignantly at Melethia, though it looked much softer compared to earlier. It looked as if he was recalling a distant memory. "...Yeah, yeah. I remember her collection. Huge, and barely touched. I was the only one who bothered to actually read any of them. Why?"

Team Blackwater

"Auntie" Jenny felt the need to calm things between Melethia and David before things got out of hand.
"Calm down you two. Yes sweetie, We can go to the shops, but remember, we are on a budget." She said before taking her hand and walking down to the market, letting David follow as they passed by several street traders.

West meanwhile knew where he was going: Blackwater Hotel, to the bar.
As he did so, he checked his own funds: 32.23 Euro and he could only use the loose change: 2.23 Euro
....Mmmmm...Wonder if this place has poker?... He thought as he walked off.
Hey, J. If you can, keep tabs on us all in case we see Solitaire...
That can be arranged. If any of you see our target, don't talk, "Think" it... she sent to West and the others as she monitored the thoughts of everyone in their group, though she had a hard time reaching Pandora due to her Dark Typing.

Team Rock Ridge

Rugal did his best to figure out what Devon had put up, finding out when he heard the Trader cry out.
"Traders?...That's...actually better. Just what happens when the non-bandit people find out it's not real?..." He asked as he awaited their reaction.

The townspeople one by one left the safety of their homes as the caravan wheeled in, each being careful in case this was a cruel trap.
The local shopkeeper was the first to reach out to the traders, though he was hoping it'd be free as he had been robbed several times over the last week.

So due a an unforseen change in plans, Ninjamedic is unable to GM and, Thus, a new arc will be formed.
That being said, I have arranged for a replacement Arc that will still use the Western Theme so we are still getting our money's worth.
We at AA apologize for any inconvenience caused and hopefully my post will fix all that.


Rising Dawn Ruins: Several weeks later

After completing the Mission for the Lightbringers and clearing Rock Ridge of the bandits that plagued it (Off-screen), The Heroes (And odd Villain) of the Rising Dawn returned to the ship, ready and raring to go back home...
Only to find that the ship was in the exact same state as when they left! No repairs were done at all! By the AI's, the Imps or by the Termi-Dillon's Nanomachines.
As the group wondered why this was, one of the Ship's AI's, Dimitri, appeared before then on a damaged Hologram projector, his Butler avatar now covered in grease and his clothes filthy, flanked by several of Devon's Imps that were holding wenches and spanners.
"Good Evening, Welcome Back!...Errr...We have a problem..." he nervously stated as he attempted to clean himself up a bit.
This channel was completely open for Justin and Glados to patch into.

"Put Simply...We CAN fix the ship...just...we lack the means to do so. Thanks to the Crash and the Warp, major damage was done and I'm not just talking about broken windows or computers, though...those too are broken...*Ahem* First, The Hull..."

The AI brought up a copy of the ship's blueprints, several parts of which were marked red for damage or missing completely.
"First, We do not have enough Metal to repair these breaches in the ship's armor, let alone replace the sections lost on re-entry. In order for the ship to take off and travel through another Warp, it's hull must be stable. As you can see, this is not the case. So we need Iron for that...Lots of in several tons..."

He then brought up another blueprint, this time of the Ship's warp drive.
"We also a new Power Source for our Warp Drive, which was naturally wreaked in the crash. Without it, we will not leave this realm anytime in the present....we just won't...Now, This mightn't be too much of an issue, I've scanned a few possible subjects that might do the trick, so hopefully we can get this one sorted."

Finally, he brought up a picture of a strange plant.
"Finally, we need a special air-tight adhesive to reseal more delicate parts of the ship, such as the windows. Now, this mightn't seem like a major issue, but..."
He didn't finish, opting for a little animation of the windows falling out and causing dozens of stickmen to be sucked out to their doom, like an Airlock breaking in a Space Station, to explain what the big deal was.

"...So...Any Questions?..."

"...So...Any Questions?..."

Caim and Angelus took in this news quietly, but the dragoness was the first to speak, "Well, we have an objective in mind. That's a start. But do you know anything else about these items, aside from them existing?"

Dimitri perked up, finally having something viable aside from bad news to bring, and disappeared from the display for a moment, a map now taking his place. However, his voice remained,

"well, I was able to garner the location of the Crystal! It's right here, on this spot on the map. As for the other two items; I'm afraid I've general locations to give you."

On the map, a blinking red dot appeared far to the north, and two purplish areas appeared to the East and West, with a cave icon and flower icon respectively.

Teri, noticing her AI looking dejected, spoke up, "Hey, at least we know where one of the items is! We can start there... Right?"

It was Caim's turn to speak, the new information mulling in his mind, "Alright, so we know where one item is. That's fine, but should we all go at once, leave some to guard the ship or split up in the three directions? I know myself and Angelus could cover a long stretch of ground on our own."

Cadolbolg, perched on his father's head, Ton Ton taking his familiar spot on Devon's shoulder, yawned, and spoke up as well, "But we've only a hunch for the other two, father. Who knows how long it would take to find them if you and mother went on your own."

Thus, with all the opinions thrown about, Ton Ton decided to cast his lot in as well, "Sorry to play devil's advocate, Cadolbolg, but perhaps your parents have a point. Perhaps not going entirely on their own, but they could still scout ahead for anything new or interesting. I know Ms. Angelus can fly very fast..."

As they all spoke, Teri looked to her staff and asked quietly, "Your two cents on the matter, friend?"


Rugal was the first to cringe at the idea of staying another moment longer on this rock.
While the work at Rock Ridge wasn't that hard, it was however unpleasant as he recalled having to unblock the Prison Toilet and other nasty things.
Blood and Gore? Sure.
Bloodily Waste? Hell no.
"...Well...That is unfortunate...A Plant and a Crystal sound easy enough, I'm more worried about the Metal. Several Tons? That could take years to find or purchase and don't even get me started on transporting it..." He said as he wiped his glasses.
He overheard Caim and Co. talk about heading out, he added "Well, if you want the Crystal, go ahead. I guess that leaves the Flower and the Metal..."
Turning to Slindis, he asked "So...Hiking or Mining?..."


West meanwhile was ran ragged from all the time in the heat and was just thankful to be back.
"Well...If no one objects, I could stay and watch the ship..." He mused, praying that the AC and Mini-Bar was repaired.


Jenny was in a bit of a sad mood after giving Cid away to a farm and this didn't really help matters.
Oh no...Blade would be worried sick... she thought as she looked around the group.
"Well...If we head to a settlement, I guess I could "Ask" around and get a more precise location..."

Rugal, Slindis

Slindis thought about it for a moment then responded to Rugal. "I say we head to the field." She nodded at West's request and gave him a quick handshake,

Sadei, Teri

Well, we can communicate with everyone here, can't we? Splitting up would allow us to cover a lot more ground. The time in rock Ridge had done a good deal to cheer Sadei up.

Cutie Bruisers, Devon

Devon looked to Ton-Ton and smiled. "I'm thinking the mines would work for where we go, but I'll be sticking with you, Little Buddy." He was glad that the Tonberry wasn't sitting on any of the areas attacked in the training, but he knew that he was in for more.

Melethia, Jenny

The young girl looked around and thought for a bit. "Miss Jenny, what about heading to those mines?"

Rugal, Slindis, West

"Fair enough. Just a spot of gardening, can't be that hard." Rugal answered back as he re-equipped his glasses.
"Right...Well...if you need me, just use the ring thingys. I'll see if there is anything I can do on this end." West said to Slindis.
Now for what he REALLY said
Right...Finally get a vacation now... He thought, not happy he lost all his money in Blackwater.
Thus he made his way to the bridge and reclined on the captain's chair, just about ready to take a nap.
Besides, odds where some shit was going to happen that'd make such a mundane task extremely difficult.
"Okay...who's going where?..." Rugal then asked, silently hoping for some alone time with the Drow.

Melethia, Jenny

As West when AWOL, Jenny answered Melethia.
"Well...Just, obviously a Mine would be rather well know, especially in this part of the world. Just if we get back to Gunsmoke or one of the other settlements, I could use my-" Skills in deductive reasoning "-to pin point the location of the mine." She explained, sneaking in a bit of telepathy in that statement.
"Still, not sure how much help I'll be once we find it. I mean..." She stopped, motioning to her stick like frame.
"...I guess I could use Telekinesis with a pickaxe..."

"One option for the iron is steal a locomotive. Those things are usually made of the stuff. Another is probably steal raw iron from some mining operation. Those are probably easiest options for acquiring the iron we need," Matt chimed in.

"-'m satisfied with that, I think. Shame abut the old man, though."

"Yeah, but it was his time. He was alive for almost 1400 years."

Boss shrugged. "The tree's still alive. That's what matters. I think. Not a hundred percent sure, but...yeah, that was odd."

Edge shrugged too, and stopped. "Well I'll be damned."

Boss looked forward. He and Edge were holding a dozen six-packs of beer. "Oh. Hey guys." Boss said. "Anyone want some Beer?"

Kate peered over Boss' shoulder.
"Sure, if there's any going."


He nodded at Matt's suggestion.
"Yes, However, would we be able to steal one without getting some unwanted legal attention is the question..." He said as Boss, Edge and Kate showed up.
As Boss offered some beer, he said "No thanks, we have other issues to attend to for the time being..."


Slindis spoke up. "I've already stated it before, but something about the field's calling me. I can handle it well enough with Rugal." She whistled to Lupito, and the wolf's fur brushed Rugal's elbow as he got near.

Cutie Bruisers, Devon

Devon thought about it again and realized that with the current split that Caim and Angelus wouldn't have any kind of healing. Sure, they could most likely handle themselves, but it would be a lot better if they had a backup if things went south.

"Caim, I don't mean to be rude, but would you like some backup? I know you can handle yourselves just fine, but it'd probably be a lot easier if you had someone to back you up. As he awaited their response with Ton-Ton perched on his shoulder, he thought about the way he'd negotiated with the people in the AIM base and stopped a good deal of bloodshed before Bruiser happened.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri

Melethia cheerfully looked at Teri holding the staff and noted that it was exceptionally made. "Sis, where'd ya get that staff? It's really well made, and it feels familiar for some reason..."

Sadei, Teri

Teri, that girl... I don't know why, but I think I know her. Sadei tsked as she tried to figure out if there was anything to that thought.

Slindis, Rugal, Luptio

"Right then, shall we be off then? our target is to the west if I recall." Rugal asked, somewhat glad that no one else decided to go flower picking, aside from her mount but they seemed to be on good terms these days.
Still, you'd think that they'd have a jar or two of this "Glue" on them if it was that important... He couldn't help but think as he glanced over to the others.
"Keep your rings on you in case any of you need help. It might be a while if we are all splitting up, but it'd be better than nothing at all."

For the record, the group is splitting up again like when one group went to Rock Ridge and the other went to Blackwater City, there are 3 groups, one looking for a Power Crystal, one looking for a source of Metal and one looking for the Plant to make the airtight sealing agent. Pick whichever you want, all of them have their own special encounters.


Cutie Bruisers, Devon, Caim, Angelus

"Caim, I don't mean to be rude, but would you like some backup? I know you can handle yourselves just fine, but it'd probably be a lot easier if you had someone to back you up.

The duo looked to each other, and then a silent conversation went between the lot of them and they nodded, "Very well. Since it's just you and the children, passenger arrangements shouldn't prove difficult..."

Caim clapped a hand on an unoccupied shoulder of Devon's with a smile, "Besides, in the lull that Angelus needs rest, we can resume our training... Ton Ton, you've been a harsh master, haven't you?"

The Tonberry raised an enthusiastic knife, "I sure have, sir! Just like you asked me to be!"

Cadolbolg grimaced and nodding, knowing full well the list of exercises Ton Ton had put him and Devon through whilst working in Rock Ridge.

"Drat that knife!"

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

"Keep your rings on you in case any of you need help. It might be a while if we are all splitting up, but it'd be better than nothing at all."

That was when Rugal heard a familiar voice in his PDA, "And I will be able to help all of you sir. Your signals are very familiar to the Rising Dawn. As we speak, I am uploading the map location to your various electronic devices..."

As her AI did his work, Teri gave a wave to Rugal with a smile, "Of course, Dad. We'll be alright. Now, you two do the same, okay?"

Turning her attentions back to Sadei and Melethia, she was both surprised and amused that both had the same thing to say. With a chuckle, she said, "Well, she was chilling out in Mum's sack of stuff before I got ahold of her. Mum thought I needed a weapon, so here we are. I'm not very good though... She can talk, you know. Now, lemme ask if she'd be alright with that...

You heard her, Sadei. She's thinking the same things you are. Maybe a conversation between you two would bear some fruit? It'd certainly pass time between here and the mines..."

Boss scoffed. "Suit yourselves, then." Boss appeared to drop the beer he was carrying, but it remained suspended in mid-air.

Edge shuffled his armfuls of beer. "Yeah, I've got this. Don't bother relieving me of my burden."

"So what are we up to now?" Boss asked. "Anything interesting?"

"I just-" The Hologram said. "I literally just-how did you miss it?"

"Late to the party." Boss said. "At least I'm not super-late this time."

The Hologram sighed "Fine. TO SUM UP! The Blacknoah is broken and needs to be repaired, but we don't have the materials to fix it. We need several tons of iron, a power source for the ship, and the materials to make an airtight adhesive which is to say-" The Hologram showed Boss the strange plant. "This thing. Did you get all that?"

"Loud and clear." Boss said. "Where do we start looking?"


Matt was searching the hangar of the Rising Dawn for something to help him steal a locomotive. After searching for awhile he found something that just might help him. A large exosuit that looked like it was designed for lifting heavy loads. The question would be if it could several tons worth of iron. Matt got in and started powering it up. The screen in front of him came to life and started giving out readings about the exosuit.

As far as Matt could tell everything seemed to be in the green and began to experiment with the controls. He found them very responsive and started walking the thing outside. Feeling the ground shake, a few looked around to see what was causing it. They saw Matt in a 20 foot tall exosuit coming towards them. "Anybody want to help me steal a locomotive?" Matt asked with a large grin on his face.

Top of the Ship
"Well, let's go." Soul said with a Witch in dark purple with paler skin than a standing right beside him. There was a tap of her staff and a flash of dark light as they were surrounded in a black orb and took off.

As Matt walked towards the ship, he noticed a woman sitting on the shoulder of his mech. Ofcourse, he would be the only one to see the girl out of anyone in existence. She simply sat there, looking off into the distance; extremely gothic in appearance.

Matt saw the woman sitting on the shoulder of his mech and was a little surprised. "Hey, you mind telling me why you're up there?" he asked her sounding a little annoyed by the situation.

Glados raised an eyebrow and lowered her gun, as the Quantum AI in front of her bowed, showing respects to her. "He's an interesting bot that's for sure."

Justin grabbed Termi-Dillon by his collar "Listen, I don't recall Dillon ever writing a villain when I was around, is he still a hero? Are you a hero?" feeling relieved he wouldn't have to commit fratricide if this look alike gave them any trouble, he decided to play a little bit of bad cop. "Answer bot" he said giving the Termi-Dillon a small shove, Glados glaring disapprovingly.

The Termi-Dillon Focused his scanners on Justin, It was like he deliberately trying to start a confrontation. he began to think and let out a laugh, it was a strange noise it had a metallic synthesized sound, to some extent it was a real laugh as opposed to just playing something that more closely resembled one.
"Your trying to play on my emotions, I'm an AI I simulate emotions based on the situation."
He was actually bluffing, he may not be as emotionally charged as a human or someone supernatural like Dillon who's speed and strength may have amplified at the cost of increase of pain and emotion. However there was no need for Justin to know this, the TXD however could guess that Glados could see through this bluff however the key to winning this gambit was to act like you had the upper hand no matter what.
"I'll trade information for information, What do you have to offer."
He kept his eyes cold luckily as a machine not showing facial expression was much easier.

"Matt! Buddy! What's up?"

Boss was hanging onto Matt's cockpit, holding a beer. "Thirsty?"

"Hey, do you know who this girl is that's sitting on the shoulder of the mech?" Matt asked Boss as he took the beer without looking and started drinking it.

Boss's smile faded. "I say that as someone who can see the true nature of things, including ghosts and spirits. There. Is. No. One. There. No one. Nothing. Not a ghost, not a spirit, nothing that can be touched or seen or sensed. There is nothing there that I can perceive in any way. I even asked Edge, to be doubly sure." Boss teleported another beer into his hand, and offered it to Matt. "Are you OK? Did something happen to you? When did you first see this girl?"

Matt quickly ran his hands through his hair to make sure nothing happened to his head. He sighed a little in relief when he didn't feel any pain and his hands didn't have blood on them. "Well I don't have any head trauma so that's good. Other than that I don't what caused it. I got in the mech, powered it up, walked it out here then she just suddenly shows up," Matt explains before quickly chugging down the beer. "I haven't snapped have I? The last time that happened I tried to crash my ship into a mountain for no reason. Crew had me restrained for a week after that," Matt said to Boss.

Boss stroked his short beard thoughtfully. "I don't know. You seem fi-"

"My two cents?" Edge said, now standing on top of the mech. "It's useless to worry about it if you have. Just stay calm, focus on the job, and try and remember if it talks to you; what it says and how it says it. If you feel like your perception is being warped, stop whatever you're doing and ask for confirmation of whatever it is that's bothering you. And stay calm. Above all else, stay calm. Panic won't help anyone."

Boss nodded. "I think that sounds good. And I'll stay with you to make sure any freak-outs are contained."

Matt nodded. "Sounds good. And thanks."

Boss jumped off the mech. "SO! Matt, Edge and I-"

"Fuck you, I'm gonna get plastered." Edge said, grabbing a six pack and walking into the ship. "I think I've earned it."

Boss sighed. "Fine. Matt and I are gonna go look for some iron. We need a lot of it, and between the three of us, we should be able to get all we need. How are we gonna divvy up the other jobs?"

Slindis, Rugal, Luptio

While the since blinded Rugal was unable to see the mech that Matt had taken, he could sure as hell hear it
"....Very well...Just if you get the Police or even the Army on you, try to avoid leading them back to the ship if you can help it. That Railway near Gunsmoke should have one passing on it as some point. Good luck." He said before using his PDA to get a Westard bearing.
"Right...Onward..." He said to Slindis and Luptio before marching off to pick the flower.
Knowing our luck, it'll have some special curse or something on it...

Teri, Melethia, Jenny

Jenny laughed somewhat nervously as Matt got his Mech out.
"Ummmm...I don't know if it'd be that easy..." She cringed at the idea of stealing, though Rugal seemed rather okay with it.
"...Well...We best set off too, hopefully before he steals a train..." she said to her "Team" before heading East towards the Area Waypoint Dimitri had set up.

Cutie Bruisers, Devon, Caim, Angelus

Devon shook Caim's hand, and he both looked forward to the training while regretting the grueling amount of effort it would take. "Just don't go easy on me, okay? I know you haven't yet, but I really don't want to get lazy here when it comes to this training. Besides, maybe I can try using the shortsword that Slindis gave me. It's no offense to that blade you gave me, of course, but it really does belong to you."

Caim had been in contact with the two mini pact partners for the training, so the training with Caim involved again would be something to behold. Above all, the Bard had never taken a knee even when he clearly should have. There was more than a few times where Ella had to drag the worn out man away from the training.

"Anyway, thanks for having me along. I'll try not to slow you down here." He looked over to Ella and asked her if she wanted to head with him before he chatted to the Imps in that guttural tongue, sending them off to Teri's group.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

As they started along the Path, Melethia looked over to Teri. "Sis, Could I take a look at the staff? I mean, ya can do more than just swing it like Wheathair would. Ya just gotta think about it right!"
The staff was a bit unwieldy, but after a bit of time in her hands, Melethia managed to get a feel for it. After a few movements with it, she handed it back to her sister as the Imps popped up near Teri and gave her a salute.

"Yeah, there's a lot there that you could do with her.. Would ya want to try something with me and miss Jenny when ya get the chance? She caught up with the Gardevoir, keeping pace with her as she could hear the footsteps of a few others.

"Miss Jenny, the train thing is a good backup idea. Still, I like the idea of checkin' that mine. Ya gotta be careful, but there's lotsa stuff we can get there!"

Slindis, Rugal, Lupito

SLindis got on Lupito as they headed out towards the flowers and chatted with Rugal. "I'm honestly not too comfortable with them taking a train, especially with the attention it'll draw. The mine should be able to pan out a bit more, and like it or not, Melethia knows good materials better than most anyone else on the ship and why it's good. Some mother I am, right? Here she should be more concerned with proper schooling and having a good childhood, and yet here she is with more blood on her hands then men three times her age..."

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

"I don't doubt it, I just hope that if they do attempt to steal a train, they don't get into a fight..." Jenny said as they moved towards Gunsmoke's neighbour, Peach Springs.
"That being said, if it stops us from having to mine out ALL of that metal and lugging it back to the ship. Mmmmm...Wonder how much Iron goes for around here? And how much we all have..." She mused as the imps flocked around them.
"Whoa!...Well, I guess we have help..."

Slindis, Rugal, Lupito

"...Indeed...Still, At the very least, she has your honor and values. All the more reason to get back to "Normality" and out of this backwards realm..." Rugal said as he managed to keep up with the Drow and her mount, even in the desert heat.
"On the Train Issue, I'm certain that there would be more to it than just walking into a mine and helping ourselves to it's sole resource. I wouldn't be surprised that either option would bring up some hassle. On top of that, if we have to pay of our Metal, we might not be able to afford it without selling every still functioning piece of tech on our ship."

Slindis, Lupito, Rugal
The black ball followed them, floating up high in the air, almost too high to see. Soul was plotting and planning. The heroes were going home no time soon.

Matt blinked and her face was directly infront of his own. ofcourse it startled him a bit. "Who are you?"
"You can see me?" she asked him with a rather monotonous and cold voice.

"Yes... but that doesn't explain who you are..." he responded.

She tirlted her head and looked at him again, cold and dead eyes. "Death." was the answer he got.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

Melethia grinned. "Oh, if they're goin' for the train, I'm sure they've got a way to break down the metals there. Only an idiot wouldn't if that's what they were planning. Plus with the help we have here to get the stuff out, we've got ways to get the stuff back. We can grab some of the metal through paying, but it's got to be the right price." As they approached the town, they could see a few vendors. Possibly one of them would have metal for a good price?

Slindis, Rugal, Lupito

Slindis shrugged. "If you're worried about not getting the metal, don't. She knows all about metals, including the quality we need and the right price for it. If nothing else, I'm sure with the people there, they'll find a way." Having cast Endure Elements on the small group earlier, the heat was more like a pleasant spring afternoon rather than a hot summer day.

"Still, we should be nearing it, correct?It was a bit of a distance, but we have made a good bit of headway here."

Matt's eyes shifted nervously when the girl said she was Death. "You mean like the grim reaper or a personification or is it just a name? Also could you move out of the way a bit, I need to see where I'm going," Matt asked her a little nervously.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

Jenny's group soon entered Peach Springs, a smaller and less diverse place then Gunsmoke but slightly more welcoming and a LOT cleaner, both visually and in the "Shifty bad guys" Sense.

Unlike Gunsmoke, their appearances stood out a bit more as this town was mostly filled with Humans.
Jenny looked around and said "Right...Looks friendly enough...I think...Now...where to start asking?..."

Slindis, Rugal, Lupito

Rugal nodded as he pulled out his PDA and went to check the map.
He then realized what a useless gesture this was, cursing the ones that blinded him.
"Here. Just check it under "Maps". Should be the first on the list." He said before handing it up to her.
Going that, she found their destination.
And with that, the Catch of getting this Flower...

Looks like they would have some climbing to do...

The girl looked at him and for a split second, he was staring at thousands of lost souls, searching for a way. "Can we play a game? I like games." she said to him. Another blink of the eyes, and she was siting next to him, defying gravity on the side of the mech.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

Jenny looked around and said "Right...Looks friendly enough...I think...Now...where to start asking?..."

Teri shrugged at the question, and gave a somewhat stern look at Melethia, whispering quickly: "The train shouldn't even be an option! Stealing a vehicle is a crime! Granted, I've done some bad things myself, but I'd rather not add any more sins to the list as it stands... That beings said... You're the metal expert, Mel. What should we do?"

As she said this, she gave a friendly nod to the imps following the group around, and gave Garm a friendly pat on the head. It was nice to do this quiet task, as opposed to constantly fighting for one's life...

Caim, Angelus, Devon, The Cuties

Caim's face extended into a calm smile, as he took in the wind in his face. A nice flight in the sun did his soul some good, even if there was another on the dragon's back, and currently clinging to him for dear life. It was hard to ruin Caim's mood in times like this. In a similar vein, Cadolbolg and Ton Ton flew at around Caim's level, and gave friendly wave to the bard, "Holding up well, Friend Devon?"

"Sure is invigorating, isn't it!"

In the meantime, Angelus flapped her wings again, and allowed the thermals to keep her at her altitude. Even if their world was destroyed and was a crapshack to begin with, she had to admit it was nice to fly from place to place whilst living there...

Cutie Bruisers, Devon, Caim, Angelus

Devon wasn't really used to flying like this, but if Caim wasn't worrying, then they had to be doing okay... He still stuck close to Caim, of course, but it could be a good bit worse.

"Heh heh... it's certainly something that I have to get used to..." It was clear that the man was more than a bit nervous, but then again, this was only his second time flying on a dragon. It wasn't something someone instantly became accustomed to, after all.

Melethia, Jenny, Teri, Sadei

Melethia shrugged. "Hey, if they can make it work, I'll take it. It's a loss that can be afforded, unless ya want to be stuck here. Honestly, we're short on supplies and you're worrying about the means behind one way to get it? I'd say the blacksmith, people. They need ta get their stuff from somewhere, right? Find that, we'll get some good quality steel here."

Sadei chimed in again, talking to Teri in a confused tone. Teri, I know that I know that girl from somewhere... She's got some real nasty streak in her, but it's on the edge of my mind!

Slindis, Rugal, Lupito

Slindis informed Rugal about the climb they'd have to take and pulled up a topographical map in the PDA for their approach, evaluating what would be the best approach up the mountain.

"We're going to have a good climb here, Rugal. I can see a few paths we can take, but I'd rather avoid the gullies. If we get any kind of rain here, that's the path the water will take down the plateau. Plus, there's also Lupito to watch out for."

With that, Slindis began the zigzagging approach, and Lupito led up the rear to ensure Rigal didn't lose his way.
