hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

The lead crewman indicates one of the three with him.  "Cerulia there will show you the way maam." Then he and the other two direct Xandius up the spiral stairs.

The room Xandius enters holds two chairs, an odd apparatus in front of a large window and a very large bearded man.  The man looks irritated.  He turns to face Xandius and the mood does not soften.  "You have been identified as a stow-away on this ship.  Explain yourself."

::Aurelueithil watched the airship soar over the city and out of sight. Her lightly tanned features reflected a frown, as she turned her head and headed back to the Fellowship Hall. What was worrying her, why did she feel some sense of confusion over this whole voyage. The Hall felt a bit empty, though there were still signs of life, and she retired to her favorite corner in the common room, curled her feet up underneath her, and rested her head in her hands. A shiver ran through her body, "Something, is not right."::

Xandius shuffles into the room, puffing somewhat from the exertion of climbing the stairs.  He takes in the room as he recovers and the captain addresses him.  A few more puffs and Xandius then smiles at the imposing figure before him.


“Helllooo there.  You must be the Captain.  I am Xandius the wise.  But you must know this if you wanted a private-wait, did you say ship?”


Xandius does a quick once over of the room and view of the window.


“Oheehee,  you are a crafty one.  You think you can fool old Xandius.  But I know that ships are on the water, like ducks.  If  you said this was a duck, I still would not be fooled.  As ducks smell really bad, except when they are cooked.  If you don’t pluck them first, then they smell bad as you cook them too.  You’re welcome.”


Xandius makes a face as his stomach growls.  He gets down on his knees and pulls out his coin purse.


“You will have to forgive this old monk, Captain.  It has been a good time since my last meal.  I only pray I have enough coppers to get something filling.”


Xandius pours the contents of his purse on the floor and begins sorting.  Copper stacks begin to form as silver, gold and platinum coins are ignored and pushed aside.  The murmur of disappointment and something about fake copper can be heard as Xandius leaves about two thousand gold in higher valued coins.  Xandius grunts as he stands.


“Those pesky kobolds fill their chests with so much fake coin, it is almost not worth cleaning them out for Stormreach.  Captain, could you tell me the closest place to get food?  Preferably with pea soup?”

Jeatra was still grinning even as Stormreach disappeared behind the horizon. Her hand squeezed Lyrica's in excitement as she spun around happily.

"Can you believe it! We're really going on a trip!” Briefly she glanced around for her cat, only fearing for a second that he might have fell off. But there he was, sitting on one of the deck’s railing looking perfectly calm grooming one paw. Still, Jeatra gave him a brief scolding look for remaining in such a precarious position. With a small meow of complaint, the cat leaped off onto the deck, finding a small corner to wait in.

With a small sigh of relief, the Halfling turned back to her songbird, smiling brightly. “Exciting isn’t it?” Tilting her head, she added. “You’ve been quiet, Lyrica. Are you nervous?”

Versatillas returns to the deck of the ship after having dropped off the excess bulk of his things on his bed in his room.  The spiked helm he always wore gleamed a sickly black and green in the sunlight as he walked around the deck, careful not to let his white robes get caught on anything and pushing things aside with his long staff.  He found a seat out of the way, back against the railing in the sky.  He tried to guess the path that they would take on their journey, but it was only something to keep his mind busy as he watched and smiled at the life around him.  Death is fascinating, but it doesn't hold the same wonders and chaos as the life around him.  He made sure to keep a weather eye on the area around them.  He wanted to make sure everyone was safe and the fun continued.

Seemingly staring off into the distance and enjoying the view, his mind is truly far more active than one would assume. "What could points offer dragons that they would even think of dealing with him, and for that matter, what could he ever have that would make the elves and dragons both deal with him at the same time? I can only hope he isn't dealing with what I think." murmuring more musings as to the actual nature of this trip to himself he resolves to ask Points just what he is planning at the first possible opportunity.

::Shaking her head, Lyrica smiles. “Nay, not a bit nervous, wouldn’t be much a songsmith if I was. Just taking everything in, making sure I do not miss a minute of the exciting journey.” Her hazel eyes sparkle with excitement, but she cocks her head as she notices the disturbance between the strange old man, the young girl and the crew, then shrugs as they vanish beneath the deck, too far away for her to have caught any of the conversation.

Returning her attention to Jeatra, “It is a grand little ship, is it not.?” Her smile shines as she takes the small but delicately crafted pipes Jeatra had gifted her with a while back, and plays them softly, running through a simple scale or two then improvising a tune to play off the faint buzz and crackle coming from the trapped elemental, the faint noise of the passing breezes and the creak and moans of the ship itself.::

The cook, a dwarven woman of gross proportion and strong disposition, starts to bluster as soon as she sees the Halfling woman enter her galley. She stops when she sees the wine. She smiles when she sees the confections. She tears up when she sees the spices. When the Halfling leaves, her tears fall silently before the spice box.


        *****                 *****                 *****                 *****


There is a slight sound and motion behind Aurelueithil.  She prefers this corner because it provides a wall at her back and none may approach unseen.  Therefore, someone unseen behind her can only mean…


                                *****                   *****                   *****                   *****


The Captain looks at the monk before him, clearly wondering if this is an act or if the man truly is this daft.  Finally he speaks, “This is an airship. You have not paid for passage. That makes you a stowaway.  We are entitled to do with you as we see fit.  While we cannot kill you outright, we can, however, let nature do the job. As we are now over water, this would involve dropping you from a height into the waves. I would estimate a one hour swim back to something resembling shore. That would be a death sentence in itself as you barely managed the stairs…”

He pauses, thinking. Looking the monk over and the pile of coin he left sitting there. He is clearly counting it. “You… these other coins are worthless to you? Well then, the fare is about worth what you have in that pile, worthless or not. You… monk, be sure to enjoy your trip, and see the cook below.  She will feed you.  I do not know if it be Pea Soup, but it will fill your belly. You will make sure not to share your wisdom with her. She is young and intolerant, but she makes a good stew and keeps my crew happy. Do not upset her and we will get along fine.”

He motions to one of the escorts.  “Take this gentleman below.  Make sure he is settled properly in a cabin.”

The escort hesitates. The Captain looks at him quizzically for a moment. “Well?”

The escort stands up straight and eyes front announces “… Sir, all of the cabins have been filled, sir.”

The Captain thinks for a moment.  “There is a room just forward of the Aft Battle Deck. Hang him a hammock.” Looking at the old monk, “It is that or staying in the hospice.  We have no other beds that I am allowed to use.”


                                *****                   *****                   *****                   *****


Points ushers out the crew and closes the cabin door behind them.  Taking a moment for himself he breathes deeply, closing his eyes. Suddenly his blades are in his hands and weaving a deadly pattern through which not even a gnat could have flown safely. Just as quickly as it starts, the blades are gone and Points again breathes deeply.  He notices something odd and opens his eyes before looking down.  He finds a tear in his robe and sighs before looking at the ceiling.  “Really? Now?”

Shucking his robe he takes a look around and decides that he has ‘played the part’ enough for today. He will mend the robe later. Leaving it draped over his desk for now he pauses by the window.  The vista that greets him is nothing but clear sky and open sea.  He smiles at some hidden secret and then notices he is nearly naked.

He moves past the bed and crib and laughs out loud before he moves to the bureau and retrieves some more relaxed clothing with bloused sleeves and pant legs.  Donning them quickly he returns to his robes and pulls several items out of their many hidden pockets. His gear secured Points stops before the mirror.

He looks over his face, hair, shoulders, arms, and then down the rest of his body.  There is a faint shimmering of the image around his face and he quickly reaches up to it.  Smoothing some of his features, he again examines himself.

Satisfied he smiles and in a deeper more ominous tone, “The game is afoot…”


This concludes this thread.  Join us for part two of the Aerenal trip “Points of Interest”…
