Aleith|DM: The Vacuous Orb from B briefly becomes unplugged
Aleith|DM: Escaped!@
Aleith|DM: As does the other orb
Gerald: "Anyway."
Zane crosses his arms, looks incredibly unamused.
Zane: "Fuckin’ really?"
Phyllis . o O ( Let's just … leave this last alone. )
Gerald: "Man I offered to give you a gun multiple times, you were the one that didn't wanna learn how to use superior killing implements " because they're loud "."
Zane: "They are loud. And heavy. And what in the world makes you think I cant use them?"
Garrett‘ . o O (I’d say let's just…) He gestures away from himself with two hands. (…push it into the grand nothingness? But that would mean getting close.)
Gerald: "Oh yeah 'cause your dainty little half orc arms can't handle a little recoil…"
Gerald‘ then starts flying out of the whirlwind.
Ernst: "More importantly, where the hell do we go from here?"
Zane: "I know where you sleep, boy."
Aleith|DM: The roaring wind from the web vortices becomes a deep rumble, and the Voice of Rot speaks. "What have my precious little eyes found for me? Ah, I witness the last lords of a dying land. Come, foes, if you can."
Gerald: "Coaltongue, first and foremost."
Garrett: "Let’s check on the other surviv…ors."
Zane: "…"
Gerald: "OH."
Gerald: "Man!"
Aleith|DM: The vacuous orbs start to wink out, one at a time.
Garrett: "Rot! You snake-faced bastard!"
Gerald: "Ahahaha."
Aleith|DM: Two of the boulders begin to crack.
Ernst: "I imagine we have to deal with that asshole while we're still on this plane."
Gerald: "Did he forget that we kicked his ass *before* you took up the rites…?
Voice of Rot: "At the end of time, I await you. Our homeworld has withered, but I cannot kill it until its last champions have lost either their lives, or their will."
Aleith|DM: And then those boulders break up entirely.
Aleith|DM: And 4 more crack up
Zane is on the move as soon as the first orb drops, moving south and dancing nimbly along the webbing as he advances towards that hole in the west. The Arsenal shifts into a whip and Zane begins snatching and pulling people to safety.
Ernst: "Well, at least someone is wary of executing their plans with us around."
Garrett‘ snarls as he kicks away from the boulder underneath him, flying above it, daggers still at the ready.
Gerald: "Buddy I have literally got a bullet with your name on it."
Voice of Rot: "Come, scions of Kelland, inventors of civilization. Contest against the harmony that is rot, and be witnesses to the completion of my destiny."
Gerald: "Tell us where and we’ll be there as fast as possible."
Garrett: "I've promised someone your tongue but I'll deliver your head!"
Aleith|DM: Those boulders break, and all of the remaining ones crack.
Zane: "I think the skull we keep, to mount in the throne room."
Aleith|DM: As you escape to the large asteroid to the west, the howling wind dies down, and the remaining boulders disintegrate, sending the webmaster into the void of space.
Garrett: "…so, yeah. The Coaltongue."
Aleith|DM: The crew cheers as you make it to the ship, including the couple handful of refugees who managed to make it to the ship with you.
Garrett: "Headcount, everyone. If anyone's missing or dead, please, please let us know."
Garrett‘ . o O (Bein’ dead around here's a bad thing to be…)
Captain: "Your Majesty! All hands are accounted for, miraculously, and the refugees are mostly okay, but the ship's levitationals are damaged."
Gerald‘ nods to Ernst and goes to start inspecting the machinery.
Captain: "The engineers have done what we can, and it can make some distance, but it’s attuned to the power of the Ghost Moon, Baden, Your Majesty. They say it's too far away now to provide power, and we'll need to find some other source here. Otherwise, we can't fly too far before needing to recharge for several hours."
Aleith|DM: Ernst can verify this.
Phyllis is silent as she mulls over the Voice of Rot's invitation.
Aleith|DM: In the meantime, someone might want to think about attuning an icon of some kind to Urim…?
Garrett: "Pretend I don't know what's going on and give me the shorthand of attuning icons and what it means."
Garrett: "It's been a loopy couple of months."
Zane swings down from the edge of the ship and winds a few strands of golden webbing around his hand before climbing back. "Urim."
Phyllis: "It'll take a few hours. Longer, if we're offworld or don't have a strong connection to it. It means we can use it in the axis seal ritual."
Zane passes the strands to Phyllis.
Phyllis: "Plenty of gold around here for the purpose, though it doesn't necessarily have to be gold."
Zane: "Actually that reminds me." And he leaves the ship again to gather up shards of the Dreaming. "
Aleith|DM: The shards aren't enough to form an icon.
[OOC] Garrett: looks like we need some FAE BLOOD
Zane doesnt know that, he's just trying to be helpful!
Gerald‘ also starts up the Vortex Array to do a huge sweeping scan so they know where they should be going, before helping Ernst adjust the engines for this new plane of existance.
Aleith|DM: It’ll take several hours to repair the damage to the ship to get it operational for the first flight anyway.
Phyllis: "Since we're on Urim, this should only take an hour. Should probably figure out an alternate plane to attune the ship to, in the meantime."
Aleith|DM: You probably could if you can make an icon for a plane with Air energy.
Garrett: "Then… something closer… hm."
Aleith|DM: As you're finishing up with the icon, Phyllis, while Gerald is running the Vortex Array, and Ernst is looking at the engines, Zane spots someone approaching the ship-a lone hooded figure, moving with cautious vigor towards the ship, leaping from boulder to boulder.
Phyllis: "Known planes are Avilona and Perlocus."
Zane: "Incoming."
Garrett: "How many and did you kill it yet?"
Zane: "One and no."
Gerald: "Do you *want* me to…?"
Garrett: "Ehh… let's at least take a -look- before it's a red mist."
Gerald‘ glances over, already putting his rifle into sniping position.
Zane: "I was going to at least see who it is first, yeah."
Garrett` heads over to the side raiing and peers over.
Phyllis looks up from attuning a set of mage cuffs. "Caution, not paranoia."
Aleith|DM: She’s still about three miles out, but you manage to see her through the spyglass.
[OOC] Garrett: that's still within gerald's kill zone
Zane: "Well, well."
Aleith|DM: The wind stirs around you as a woman's voice whispers, "I am Calily Buen of the Kinava monastery. I know disaster has befallen you. Will you promise my safety if I come to render aid?"
Zane: "If you come in peace, you are welcome."
Aleith|DM: Pick a direction to scan first, Ice.
Zane: "I'm gonna go meet our guest. If she kills me, shoot her."
Zane hops over the edge of the ship amd moves to intercept.
Garrett: "Just so you know, I'm rooting for you."
Gerald‘ has no idea where the fuck they are, so he’s going to start with the nearest thing that looks like a landmass they can see from here and then scan around them clockwise, and if there's nothing in visual range then starting due north.
Aleith|DM: You can vaguely see things in the distance over a dozen miles out with a spyglass, but there's stuff in each direction but south and south-east.
Aleith|DM: It's about 15 minutes later as both of you meet roughly in the middle. She jogs lightly up to you, wearing loose-fitting sand-brown clothes that cover everything but her face, and even that is shrouded by a hood, strands of gray hair drifting out of it in the breeze. She carries a staff, clearly worn from great use, and when close enough to make eye contact she pulls back her hood to reveal the face of a woman far older than her agility would suggest.
Zane: "Zane Bieito. It is unexpected to meet a lone traveler in a place like this."
Calily: "Welcome to the Gyre, traveller. I have a bit of salted fish, if you like, from what I call an Amrou Hunlow Snapper. You should ration what food you have, as there's very little to be found here."
Aleith|DM: Starting to the north-west, Gerald, your scan turns up empty in the immediate area, though the Vortex Array faintly detects magical energies of life and time coming from beyond it. Turning your spyglass towards there,all you can see is plundered ruins.
Zane smiles. "I believe we have food on the ship, if you would care to join us. I suspect my friends and I will have… many questions."
Calily: "I am more than happy to supply the information. There are a few dozen more of us to the south-west, at our monastery."
Zane: "And you all… live here? In the Gyre?"
Calily: "It's not like we have much choice. I was seventeen when our world died, scoured in fire by the Demon of the West Wind, but we survived by flying on paper wings."
Calily: "When the smoke cleared, my fellow monks and I found ourselves here, and the only remnants of our world was a scorched forest."
Zane turns and starts heading back to the ship. He's not deliberately putting the old lady through her paces, but she's getting The Assessment. "Huh."
Calily: "Shortly afterwards, we were raided by the Golden Legion, who took slaves from amongst us, but left enough to nurture the forest back to health because they desired regular tribute in the form of lumber."
Zane: "Interesting."
Calily: "With not much to eat, they gave us enchanted rings to sustain us without food. An act of efficiency, not mercy, but it let us devote ourselves wholly to asceticism."
Calily: "Our master, Chyak San-Cho, guided the monastery to enlighted detachment, where the goal was to be empty, like the air. In the wake of our world’s death, we endured without purpose, looking inward and awaiting our own inevitable deaths. Fifty years later, only a few dozen of us still survive."
Zane: "Seems an odd way to live, just waiting to die."
Calily: "I don't quite feel the same. I have ranged across to all the worlds the Gyre has that I could reach, and even brought back the occasional game animal to feed my fellow monks."
Zane nods. "That is more like it."
Calily: "A few months ago, several new planes crashed into the Gyre, jostling us from our routines."
Zane: "Yeah. Our world has been… Well, it's a long story." He pulls a flask out of his coat and offers it to her. "Drink?"
Calily: "The Legion sent scounts to investigate, but found them devoid of potential slaves. Not wanting to return to their plane, Egalitrix, empty-handed, they came to our monastery, and took Master San-Cho, in a bargain to save his students from the same fate."
Calily: "Please. Thank you." She takes a drink gladly. "Even though my throat isn't really parched, it just feels different to actually take a drink like this."
Aleith|DM: To the north, Gerald, there's energy of note, suggesting it's altogether desolate. Indeed, with a spyglass it is possible to see that it is more plundered ruins, which appear to have been abandoned for ages. The array detects minor energy of fire and time coming from the plane north of it.
Calily: "Our master's sacrifice has inspired the other monks, where my own pleadings failed. Even now we are preparing for a strike against the Golden Legion, to attempt to rescue our master. If not, we will make a final stand against the forces of destruction."
Zane nods. "There is a simple joy in things. I run, for example. Sure, it has practical results but I enjoy the act itself." He takes a drink and tucks the flask away. "If you are going to fight the Legion, we should ally our forces. We have a bone to pick with them as well."
Calily: "We would welcome your help if you could find it within yourselves to help. But either way, I will be happy to tell you about the place you have been stranded in-Oh, thank you! Can we head to your ship then, and I'll tell your about it."
Calily pulls out a map, showing quite a number of planar motes scattered about the Gyre. "And I can tell you what I know about each of these."
Zane: "Of course. You'll want to meet the others anyway. I'm not the leader, just the guard dog."
Aleith|DM: To the north-east, Gerald, there's frustratingly no energy of note. Visual inspection reveals it’s just a field of dead motes, barren rocks of a world torn apart by the churning edge of the Gyre.
Aleith|DM: And finally to the south-west, Calily's plane registers air and life energy. You can just make out a forested hill in the distance. The plane beyond it shows traces of fire and water magic.
Gerald` makes sure to write down the results for Phyllis to inspect and likely plan around later.
