I logged in a couple of weeks back, took one look at the new enhancement trees and logged back out... Haven't been back since! Can't be bothered to figure out how that works right now.

Xandius opens his eyes.  The rejuvenating effects of a restful sleep course through his old muscles.  He puzzles over the sense of motion he feels even though he is laying down. 

He remembers the night before chatting with someone, marveling over how high over the city the structure he was looking at was.  Getting there was remarkably easy.  A guard challenged his presence, but soon went cross-eyed after a few well phrased words of wisdom.  Or perhaps his name was on a manifest of people authorized to come aboard.  The guard cautioned Xandius about the edge, but otherwise no longer hindered him.  Xandius thanked the guard and produced more words of wisdom that the guard seemed to have difficulty fathoming.  On to the pointy end of the structure Xandius went.  For a few hours Xandius marveled at the view of Stormreach, surely meditating here would bring enlightenment beyond compare.  The crew of the ship making preparations became accustomed and then bored with the presence of this blathering old-timer.  When a few brisk breezes caused Xanduis to seek shelter under a nearby tarp that covered some coils of rope, Xandius vanished from the crews sight, and then left their memory.  Sleep took Xandius as it always does, with little warning and in whatever position Xandius currently is. 

Xandius gets up from under the tarp to stretch and welcome the daylight.  He wavers slightly as that strange sense that he is in motion continues.  Xandius notices some familiar faces lower down on the structure.  He wanders down to those on the deck and smiles pleasantly.  "Helllooo there my friends.  Have you come up here to enjoy the view as well?  Let me tell you it is equally pleasing at night."

As the city-scape rolls away beneath them Lyrick turns occasionally to glance at any of the unfamiliar voices that echo out across the ship; trying to commit their faces to memory.

Is it just me or are even more passengers showing up now that we have set sail? How is that possible?...Hells, who cares. I wonder when that tour is going to start; kind of anxious to get underway and to put some more ground between me and Stormreach...

As the golden beam of the Harbor beacon and the steady throb of the lighthouse come into view Lyrick spies the usual haunt of Lysander Whisperwind below, a few guards continuing to mill about questioning the card-shark.

Keeper take that bloody little troll-spawn...Well, I shouldn't leave without a parting gift at least...

With a wry grin Lyrick leans over the railing and spits over the edge of the airship...

Upon seeing Xandius, Deriaz tenses up at the new face. Having not seen the face before, his mind immediately sprang to worry, but when no one else makes any form of concern or surprise, he relaxes. The warforged does the usual salute to the newcomer. "Hello there, new face. Deriaz Ironfist, or whatever nickname you wish, at your service."

He releases the salute after a few seconds, then glances over to the railing. The sight of the golden beam from the Harbor statue sent a shudder through his body again. She wasn't kidding, he thinks to himself. We really are crossing the ocean. . .

Cautiously, he takes a few heavy steps towards the railing -- enough to let him peer over the edge, but stay relatively safe on the deck by being a few feet away from the railing itself. He stares at the ocean, then glances up to the elemental ring. How long do these things fly? Can they run out of energy? What if it rains? His mind races, continually worrying about how the airship works, and the odds of the ship plummeting out of the sky into the water. Jaggie may have promised to not let him go under, but his mind began chanting his usual fear. Don't want to go under. Don't want to go under. . .

"Uh, Points?" he says, taking a few steps away from the railing to the center of the deck, but with his eyes still glancing between the ring and the railing. "What was that about a tour? I wouldn't mind that. . . Not that I don't enjoy the view, of course. . ."

Points smiles at the interchange between Valianna and Versatillas. He didn't think the old drow had a heart.  Just another data point for the list.  He guages the impact his speech has had on his passengers and friends.  It is while he is examining each person that he notes the 'new arrivals'.

A crewman hustles up to him and tells him something quickly in hushed whispers.  Points notes the 'additions' and issues some instructions. The crewman rushes off.

At Deriaz' comment, Points looks over at him with a smile. "Of course, Big Blue...  I'll be back in a moment and we can get started on that.  I just have a few details to iron out and we can have a look around."  Points smiles at Valianna and motions for her to remain here.  He then heads below decks.

A short time later, four of the crew approach Sokoya and four more approach Xandius.  They are all smiling, very polite and standing just out of reach.  They do not appear armed but they are not relaxed either.  One asks "My captain bids you greetings. Will you please come with us?"

Points arrives in the hall outside his quarters and finds a well armed group of crewman waiting in the wings.  He nods at the yoeman and they move into position.  He approaches the door silently and listens for a moment. Again, with barely a whisper of steel on steel, he unlocks the portal and weapons appear in his hands. Throwing the door wide he looks in quickly and stops at what he sees, a large comfortable looking chair and...

"Teldyn? What are you doing here? ...In my room?!?"

Teldyn looks rather unconcerned at the large gathering.

"I'm rather enjoying the view.  Its been a long time since I have been on an airship."  His smile is genuine, and he seems completely indifferent to the steel that is bare in his prescence.

"We really need to work on communication.  I always seem to be the last to know that anything happens around here.  And as to your cabin..., well, it was a guess.  Since no one was here, I just planned on waiting till someone came in.  I'm surprised Vers didn't say anything.  I'll be more than happy to relocate myself, just point me to a spare corner of the ship."

He smiles, a disarming look.  He seems jovial.  He gets to his feet, and with a snap of fingers, the chair simply vanishes.  "Since you brought so many men with you, I assume you wish us to relocate.  Lead the way, captain."

Points motions for the men to lower their arms and steps up to Teldyn. "What do you mean the last to know?  We have only been planning this trip for months... oh right, perhaps if you had been any where near the... why am I explaining to you? ...and you haven't told me why you are in my room. I mean Vali could have been changing or we could have been... involved. You just don't pop up in someone's quarters. We will have to have a little chat sometime about privacy and personal space."

He looks to the yeoman, "Please see this gentleman to his own quarters."

Turning back to the elf, "Teldyn, I am not the captain.  Captain Cirrus is. He is not so... understanding.  Please control your urges on this ship.  It is good to have you aboard, but next time... come on the deck like everyone else. Showing up here unannounced and in our private quarters, was rude and impolite.  I would never enter your lab in such a manner."

Sokoya subconsciously moves slightly behind Jaggie as the crew members approach.  She has a little skill in reading an audience and these people, despite their smiles, are apparently not altogether pleased with her. 

The drow looks up at the warforged nervously.  "M-miss Jaggie?  I am not being here to causing troubles... please do not be sending me back?"  She glances back at the crew, then at Jaggie again, thinking that four people to escort one young girl seems a little excessive.  What did they think her capable of? 

Swallowing her nervousness, her natural charisma automatically comes into play as she straightens her shoulders and makes a very proper curtsey to the crewman who addressed her.  Trusting in Jaggie to make sure nothing happens to her, Suki's smile lights up her delicately-beautiful face as she nods to the crewman.  "I am being happy for meeting your captain and returning his kind greetings, sir.  Please be leading the way."



(Quezan?  Join??  Oh gods...   And no, Suki is not of wooable age, before you ask!))

Teldyn frowns, his features losing their jovialness.

"Honestly Points, had I stepped in on something you think I would have just stayed here watching?  I do have some level of decent behavior.  And as to antics, you make it sound like I would try to attempt to blow up half the ship just to see how the explosion would go."  Teldyn looks like there is plenty more he would wish to say, but rather bites his tongue.

Shaking his head, Teldyn turns, making a doorway next to himself, and walking through it, stepping up onto the main deck of the airship.  Without turning back, he closes the door, and leans against the railing, looking out over the landscape.

((Points left a small airship behind for stragglers OR there is a glut of teleportation rods on the market.))

The crew all smile and seem to visibly relax.  One even offers his arm to the young Drow.  They don't walk far before they enter a doorway and spiral stairs leading up and down. Indicating that she should go up, the one crewman follows.

Sokoya eventually enters an enclosed space with two seats and a strange console.  The man in one of those seats is old and weathered.  He looks at the drow with obvious claculations running through his mind. His thoughts reach a conclusion and he smiles broadly.

"Welcome aboard.  I see that you were with friends, and Master Points has asked me to speak with you while he attends other matters.  I am Captain Cirrus, Master of this vessel. I am sure that it just slipped your mind, but we are in the habit of taking payment for transport.  Can you pay?"


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

Points looks at the elf and watches as he leaves in the unorthodox manner.  Turning to the yeoman, he sighs. "Now, I'm the bad guy... Just... keep an eye out for him and help him get settled when he is ready."

Points looks at the ceiling and rolls his eyes.  "It's going to be a fun trip..."

He smiles to himself and shakes his head before heading back on deck.  Almost absentmindedly he returns his blades to their sheathes, out of sight and out of mind...
