PseudoGM: When last we left off, the party had just returned to the past from the future, riding on top of a rocket powered sled and rapidly moving in the direct of Yu'Bue.
Lyra stands atop the cannon of the sled, looking ahead "This is slightly ridiculous, so you know"
Soahc: "I think in our line of work, if our situation isn't ridiculous, we're not doing our job."
Alder has cut up tires placed around his shoulders, some black oil/warpaint painted underneath his eyes, wielding a firearm from the future, and has a random chain snaking from his belt to somewhere else.
Chrysanthemum: "Even for our line o' work, this'll make for some impressive stories."
Alder: "We arrive on a chairot of sound and fury, hurtling towards righting wrongs!"
Soahc: "Now warm up the cannon that isn't supposed to exist and let's do something stupid for the right reasons."
PseudoGM: Before too long you're caught back up to the blockaid you ran into before - though it's all but been abandoned now. Seems like they're probably moved on and headed towards where the barrier is supposed to be errected, if you're remembering your history correctly.
PseudoGM: The log barricade isn't really up to the task of halting a rocket powered sled, though, especially with a bit of gunfire support tearing into it, and you speed past it in moments.
Lyra look at the barricade they smash through "I really hope we're not late"
Alder: "We can't be- that's what the time travel was for!"
PseudoGM: And after a short few tence moments you can see some sort of procession in the distance - a carriage, and couple of knights on horse back surrounding it with - headed in the direction the soon-to-be-barrier.
Alder: "Did we give this thing like some sort of… lift?"
Lyra: "Don't think so…" she looks ahead "But if we find a bit of elevation and give it a little boost I may be able to steer us for abit"
Alder: "So long as we don't collide!"
Alder: "Wonder if we can punch through the barrier with this big one alone!"
PseudoGM: The Knights - mostly human from the look of them - look bewildered and slowly start drawing weapons as you rapidly approach, but none of them really looks like they know what to do.
Lyra: "Want to try? If you steer that way we can get right past them and towards the barrier and try our hands at it"
Lyra: "If my count of days since we arrived was correct, however… We might be able to get them before the barrier's erected, if the historical records are correct"
Lyra: "You know what I like that choice better, towards that log, full speed, we're jumping past them and stopping that barrier!"
Alder adjusts the rudders!
Soahc tries to aid with magic! And science! And determination… well, not so much those last two.
PseudoGM: Little turn here, little ramp there, rocket's still going at full power… the sled clear the carriage with ease and continues sailing above the trees for a good number of meters before crashing back into the ground and barreling away, leaving the knights and whomever else was in the carriage completely confused.
PseudoGM: After that there's a few patrols of Hundred and the odd Mystic here or there, but you basically just blast past them - no one from this era is really prepared to deal with anything moving this fast or dangerously - though by the time you hit the Mystic's base camp, the rocket's starting to die a bit. You manange to clear it though, and as the sled skids to a stop, you can see a single lone
PseudoGM: Mystic shroud in robes, flanked by a handful of Hundred preparing some sort of large magic circle.
Chrysanthemum: "Gahahahahah!"
Lyra does not gives him time to continue with his preparation, even if he's going to monologue in a moment. As the sled skids to a halt she jumps off of it and fires a shot at him midair "Hold it!"
Chrysanthemum: "Wish I coulda seen the looks on their faces."
PseudoGM: There's a few shouts before the Mystic stands up, turning around and lowering his hood. "…How the devil -"
Alder aims the cannon and fires it at the circle-in-making!
Chrysanthemum: "Luckily, I can see this guy's!" He slams his fist into his open palm.
PseudoGM: There's a scowl on his faces as he waves one hand to deflect Lyra's first bullet, then the other hand as a small barrier forms around the sled's cannon, forcing it to fire directly into nothing more than its own barrel and more or less exploding it.
Alder flies back from the blast, rolls along the ground, roll roll roll to a stop next to Lyra.
Lyra falls on the floor in a ready stance, she snatches a bullet midair with her mouth and then turns to growl at the mystic, that was just a distraction anyway "So are you coming peacefully or are you going to do like everyone else we met up until now and try to fight?"
PseudoGM: "Gods above and below. You idiots just can't help but get in my way, can you? How did you even get back here? The jester with you doesn't look like he has the chops to perform time travel rituals." The Mystic sighs while narrowing his eyes at Alder.
Alder raises a finger up from his prostrate position on the ground.
Chrysanthemum calmly hops off of the exploding cannon platform. "A magician never reveals their tricks, even I know that."
Soahc: "A true magician never reveals his-"
Soahc: "…GODDAMMIT!"
Alder: "Thff wheff yorff wronff, buffy!"
Rudri lands and prepares their glove. "I don't think just one disappointment is enough for you today.
Alder crouches his legs up underneath him and pushes up, wobbling to a stand.
Lyra: "Looks are decieving I imagine"
PseudoGM: The Mystic places a hand to his forehead with a groan. "The lot of you are jesters I see. Well. I suppose I'm going to have to simply settle for killing you all now, aren't I…?" The Hundred accompanying him seem to have regained their barings at this point and move to intercept the party as a defensive line.
Alder: "I'll have you know that it wasn't the magic, or the jewel, or this new mode of transportation that's important…"
Alder: "It's the friends we made along the way."
Alder: "…that we sort of left to die in the future?"
Lyra: "Well"
PseudoGM: "I'll take that as a 'yes'."

PseudoGM: Truffle shuffle, Rudri?
Lyra: "I will be happy to tear you apart
Rudri: Quicken 2.
Soahc: "Many of which said things we didn't bother to try to understand, like, " oh god, oh god, why are you doing this? " or " Pineapples don't go there, stop trying! " or my favorite, " THERE'S TROUT IN PLACES TROUT SHOULDN'T BE! "."
PseudoGM: "Oh please, as if I could stop at this point any more than you could you uncooth stuffed animal."

Chrysanthemum: "Sometimes y'just gotta knock some sense into the Mystics. We learned this the hard way."
Alder: "You can change your socks but you can't change a person!"
Alder: "Unless it's into a corpse, I suppose!"
Soahc: "and then you can use it for a puppet show!"
Alder: "(I had that line on deck when I was still drinking the Mystic punch, but never got to use it until now.)"
Lyra shakes her head, she hops up in front of Chrysanthemum "You can, perhaps you lack the wisdom to" she falls on fall fours and spread her wings as white light gathers on them and a magical circle appears in front of her mouth. After a moment a powerful blast fires towards the Hundred Bodyguard as white particles blast off backwards, scattering on Chrysantemum [Blessed Arrow]

Lyra takes a deep breath, and starts walking slowly over to the fallen over mystic "Finally, heaven and earth, grant me strength. Because I am in fact about to pass out"
Alder: "Haa… haa…"
Rudri: "We've literally escaped the grasp of time. Did you really think we were going to fail at the last hurdle?"
Alder: "-Someone- doubletap him because it could be a trick."
Soahc obligingly sets the Mystic on fire.
Lyra looks at the fallen foe, then looks at Alder "He can teleport, do you got a way to prevent him from doing that in case… We…" she looks "take him into custody"
Lyra: "Which I imagine isn't the case
PseudoGM: You can hear the sounds of another battle behind you dying down - when you turn you cna see a few Knights putting down the last of the Hundred in the area… and another Knight, in bright goldne armor and weilding a gigantic glowing blue sword levels it in Alder's direction. "HALT, FIEND!"
[OOC] Soahc: Okay guys I am super hungry right now, so unless we're doing another fight, I need me some foods.
Alder: "Wrong Mystic, wrong Mystic!"
PseudoGM: "…Eh?"
Alder waves a hand at the burning pile over yonder.
Lyra turns around "Wrong Mystic, in fact" she points to the burning body "That's the one"
Alder: "If you want him alive, you better put it out quick- but I assure you, you don't have the means to keep him."
Lyra: "Ah, that must be Excaliber- Though I admit I forgot your name"
PseudoGM: A look of confusion momentarily washes over his face before noticing the other downed Mystic. There's a long pause. A glance back at the group. "…One of the defectors?"
Alder nods. "Even got knighted by the Princess of Mels!"
Alder: "…sort of! We got paid!"
Lyra: "Something… Like that…" she says weirdly when Alder comments
Lyra: "But yes, he's a defector, I think. He's been helping us for a while"
Chrysanthemum: "He's one o' th' good ones."
PseudoGM: "What a bizzare turn of events." A moment to deliberate with the glowing sword, followed by the knight in shining armor hurling it at the Mystic. It begins to shift and morph mid air, eventually turning into a snake which coils around the Mystic as it crashes into him.
Lyra: "Heaven and earth- Excaliber please be really careful, alright? Anything happens with you and we're having another war on our hands a few decades from now"
PseudoGM: "Still, who am I to say no to a helping hand! I fear we might not've reached them in time if it hadn't been for you stalling them. … Was that your staggeringly quick carriage that passed us, as well?"
Chrysanthemum: "Sure was!"
Lyra: "Yes it was"
Lyra: "Ran out of fuel, sadly
PseudoGM: The snake raises one eyebrow at Lyra. "Psh, I'm fine."
Rudri: "… not sure you can call it a carriage, but."
Alder: "Yes, yes… that… is a long story in itself."
Alder: "You probably won't be able to reactivate it for a number of centuries."
PseudoGM: "Utterly bizzare. Well, thanks where it's due in any case good sirs!"
Lyra: "Good, either way…"
Lyra: "You have no idea what a really convoluted trip this was"
PseudoGM: "Haha. Mine wasn't quite straight forward, so I can imagine to a degree at least." The knight smiles, as he strides up and seizes the Mystic, with Excaliber still coiled around him.
Lyra: "Now, I've half a mind to stick with you all until you return home, just to make sure nothing goes awry"
Alder: "That is not a half bad idea" !
Alder: "Plus we could use the fresh horses and a few droughts to keep us hale."
PseudoGM: "In any case… This should do wonders for the war effort. I've heard this one here," He gestures towards the group with the Mystic in hand, "Was the one directly commanding all their armies."
Lyra: "Wouldn't surprise me"
Lyra: "Given his raw importance to the war effort… Let's just hope the mess with Yue'Be is resolved when we return…"
Alder: "He's a sneaky snake, for sure." Pauses, then turns to the coiled snake. "Forgive me."
PseudoGM: "Ah? Yes of course, we could certainly supply you with some horses and supplies. With the good work you did here, I can only imagine where they've got you going next. Imagine it'll be worth assisting you get there, though." The Knight grins.
PseudoGM: Excaliber makes a strange shrug like motion at Alder. "None taken."
PseudoGM: "Lads! Rustle up these folks some spare horses and supply!" Those that aren't busy tieing up what's left of the Hundred give a shouts shouts of acknowledgement and begin doing just that.
Lyra: "Don't actually get one just for me, if that wasn't obvious… I'll… Be happy if you have some sewing supplies avaiable" she looks at the caravan that the man just called upon "That sure was a trip…
PseudoGM: "Hahah, well I can check and see but I don't think many travel to battle with needle and thread… maybe one of the sturgens? In any case."
PseudoGM: "I'm going to get this lout squared away, just ask the caravan for anything you need before you leave." The Knight flashes the group a salute, before throwing the snaked Mystic over his shoulder and wandering off.
Alder exhales a breath he didn't even realize he was holding as the man leaves.
Lyra sighs, and starts heading over to the caravan "Maybe we should really get going? Even I feel like resting now"
Alder: "The escort back sounds like a good idea, even as tired as we are."
Alder: "Then… then we see what the present is like."
Alder: "Which will hopefully be more than the sum of its equasion."
Rudri lets out a long sigh. "Hopefully…"
PseudoGM: The caravan doesn't mind too much if you ride back to the capital with them - all the various knights and the hero spend most of the time recounting their various war stories now that they've got a few new pairs of ears to talk off, and promise to recommend your entire group for commendations of valor and the like.
Chrysanthemum: "C'mon! We've come this far! And if there's still somethin' we missed, well…"
PseudoGM: They've got a few magicians traveling with them, who take turns keeping the Mystic far too exhausted to do anything for the duration of the trip back, and is them summerily placed in a secure anti-magic cell so they can try him for his crimes.
Lyra is happy to hear! She doubts they'd believe anything such as their tales of time travel, so hardly worth sharing (unless someone feels like they'd enjoy it, they're not keeping secret)
Alder listens to their stories, and laughs and drinks with the best of them, probably to his detriment…
PseudoGM: With the way some of the exagurate it might not even be that far out of place, but.
PseudoGM: Either way, the trip back is largely uneventual, and the hand off of the prisoner happens without mishap.
Rudri resumes their perching atop Chrys' shoulder. Not a lot for them to do!
Lyra just finds a comfortable place to be carried on because honestly? She's tired
Alder does his best to stay upright in a horse, though he's likely fine after a night's rest.
Lyra: "Hrm… Out of our jet sled I think we better find some other transport to the town"
Chrysanthemum pets Rudri between the ears contentedly, trading stories along with Alder and the others. He's got lots of them!
PseudoGM: They did say you were free to keep the horses to get to your next location.
Lyra will take advantage of that! Time to head back to the shrine!
Alder pats his horse on the neck. "You might get to meet some of your great-great-great-great-great-grandbabies when we get to the present!"
Alder: "(How long do horses live naturally, anyway?)"
PseudoGM: While not quite as fast as the rocket sled was, it's certainly a great deal faster than walking all the way out to the boarder from the capital would have been. Can you even imagine?
Alder: "(It's kind of different when the only 'horses' you know are Nightmares crafted from demonic pacts.)"
PseudoGM: From gossip overheard by other travellers and merchents as you ride, it sounds like a lot of the fighting is starting to die down all over the place as the alliance continues to overtake the Mystics.
Lyra: "(As long as humans, if memory serves me)"
Chrysanthemum: "(How long do -those- horses live?)"
PseudoGM: And at town, it seems like the small little community of Hundred that you helped established it still getting along well - possibly even better now that it seems like the end of the war is in sight. You get a good number of acknowledging nods and waves as you ride in.
Alder: "(Hmm… give or take a few centuries, though if they gorge themselves on aether and become too powerful…)"
PseudoGM: And the path up to the shrine is as clear as it's always been back in CE600.
Rudri: "So… what're we all going to do if we get back and the Yue-to succession crisis isn't even happening?"
Alder thinks, hand to chin.
Alder: "An -amazing- buffet of all the nation's culinary delights!"
Alder: "Enough to make me bust a button of my suit!"
Lyra chuckles "At the minimum whatever we were doing before we got on this mess"
Lyra: "I need to go back to Young Master at some point, anyway"
Rudri: "… the Yue-to issue -was- what Chrys and I were doing."
Lyra: "Oh… Well"
Lyra: "I imagine we can find something else for you to do!"
Alder: "I think there's a more pressing question, to be honest," he begins, as he ascends the shrine stairs, and stands before the altar.
Soahc ascends as well, Gem taken out of his robes.
Alder: "…"
Alder: "…why did they call it 'Flower Ark'?"
Lyra stares at Alder
Lyra proceeds to do roughly nothing else of note for a while
Lyra: "I don't know"
Soahc: "Hope blooming across centuries… nah."
PseudoGM: Some things man wasn't ment to know. … At any rate, Soahc's ritual goes off without a hitch, and you're back in [CE1000] in short order. Immediately, you notice the lack of tanks and make shift military camp ground around the town. As you decend from the mount, there's a shout from one of the locals - the Elder in fact - who waves towards Soahc. "Oi! You find whatever it was they
PseudoGM: lost up there, then? "
Lyra: "We definitely found something"
PseudoGM: "That's good, great! Hate to sour the experience any and make folks less inclined to come back next year."
Alder heads down the way and gives the Elder a firm clap on the shoulder.
Alder: "My friend, here's to them visiting for millenia."
PseudoGM: "Hah! Here's hopin'."
Rudri sighs just a little bit. "Still… dunno what to do from here…"
Lyra: "If you feel like travelling just to know places"
Lyra: "I'll be going back to Young Master now, i am fairly certain the Academy could find something to use your time on"
Soahc: "..and I've got stuff to do here."
PseudoGM: "Aye. Those jewels ain't gunna polish themselves, Soahc." The Elder clasps him on the shoulder.
Soahc: "Oh, vague innuendo. How I have missed thee."
PseudoGM: He rolls his eyes. "In either case. Glad all seemed to enjoy the ceremonies, so be sure to come back next year!"
Chrysanthemum grins. "I'll be sure to!"
Rudri glances up at Chrys. "You've been at this way longer than me. What… do you think?"
Lyra: "I've got a feeling I will"
Chrysanthemum: "I think… things're gonna be all right." He grins. "Been meaning to swing by the Academy, so maybe we can head that way. Hit up some history books. Gwahahah!"
Chrysanthemum: "Always monsters that need huntin' somewhere, after all!"
PseudoGM: There sure are.
PseudoGM: And better that than a war! Good Job, Heroes.
