  1. I am good to have Austin and Yokiko have a follow-up date, probably just going out for coffee and a show, and discussing the doings of their respective bands. He wouldn't just want to get info from her, but if she asks, he'll answer her questions. I'm game to do this OC in a series of posts either all public, or PM for ease of response and so it doesn't get lost somewhere. Or simply handling it off-camera, as time permits.
  2. As the meeting broke up, Theo summoned his generals and Knight Captain. About an hour later, Yuuki found herself face to face with Knight Captain Daizo, "Miss Yuuki, I'm here to help you. I've got ten of my men and three loads of apples per your request to Lord Carnaro, We are at your service." Elsewhere, Tori and Ryan were sortieing against the Imperial Air force. It was several hours before they returned, The Banshee looked like it would fall apart, nearly all the armor was melted away, indeed, an entire arm was gone, and the Beam Rifle destroyed. Tori was hurt, and suffering from Mana depletion, and it was Ryan who ended up carrying her piggyback to her room, for her to be tended to. "Their airforce is gone completely. This will be a ground war from now on." Was his summation of what happened. The next day He would meet with Vesper to go out and start the guerilla attacks, needing a night to recover himself after the ordeal of the Banshee.
  3. Theo looked to Yuuki. "Whatever you need to get ready. I'll have Knight Captain Daizo get you the supplies and an escort for you. Preparing traps like that will help alot, especially if we can get them to come that way alone. Still I'd like to establish some fields to the North and South, if only because they'll move right into them once they discover the original set." Ryan considered that. "Damn. I'd not thought about that. My own energy replenishes over time faster than most, so I'd have been perfect as a Mage, except that I can't use any form of magic." The truth was far more disturbing and something he didn't want revealed. He'd gone along with the illusion spell, but he'd known what she was doing. Magic had zero effect on him, good or bad. It was one of the reasons he was unsure just what the abilities the Gamemaster was using were. "Okay, so we cannot go with that idea. Damn." Izona chuckled. "There is a way to go with that plan, if you want. I'll have to talk to you and Vesper privately though, it's not something that Everyone should know." Ryan shook his head, "No here's fine, those of us at the table I trust and since it's just us, and our lives, we can do it here." the Celestial sighed. "Very well. Using the blood of a powerful individual, Vesper can summon various chaos and shadow beasts. She can use those to harass the enemy flanks, just as you wish. Because your power regenerates, you can go with her, and enable her to keep summoning. The kick is if you're caught, it will be the end of any chance for peace. I can Teleport the two of you there, so you can harass them for the remainder of their journey here, and recall you on the last day, so you can both recover and prepare for the battle." Ryan looked to Vesper. "Could work, what do you think? I'd still need to go with Tori first and take out their airforce, otherwise they'll know what we're doing." Theo and Siluca looked on in confusion and fear. "You're talking about Chaos beasts...setting them loose..." Ryan looked to him. "Any mage with the darkness or chaos aptitude can do it, that's what I'd read in one of the books in the former duke's private library. You cannot have light alone, you must also have darkness to distinguish it. We're simply using all the options we have. Because she summoned them she controls them, same as any elemental that gets summoned."
  4. Theo shook his head. "We don't want to kill Princess Marina. Siluca learned that she's waging war to complete the crest, subjugating everyone under the Empire, so that Elias doesn't have to. She still loves him, though she'd deny it if pressed. We have to crush their morale, hopefully without killing too many, or losing our own soldiers." Ryan, abit exasperated, sighed. "Theo, man, you don't ask for anything easy..." Ryan looked at the map. "Tori and I will handle the Dragons. Swordancer mode will be more than enough I think, if I put some real power to it, and Tori's okay with letting me try that again. If we can make them focus on a land battle, that will limit their options. So we'll head out soon, and do that. While we do, Yuuki, you set your traps, and prepare. Vesper, if you can turn invisible right? We can drop you near the edge of their formation, and you can send Therion to pick off their sentries. Doing that will keep them off balance, it's a nasty unconventional war tactic, but nothing saps morale like an enemy they can't fight back against. How does that sound?" Izona smiled, and looked to Vesper, "oh she can do far more than that, something that will really get their attention, still there's a risk. If she gets caught, it could well backfire on us."
  5. Izona shook her head. "no, you'll be able to cast your magic, so will Siluca, and any other mages Lord Theo has. By maintaining the spell, and doing nothing else, I can ensure it remains that way."
  6. Ryan nodded. "Sure, we can set up several lines of traps on their main avenue of attack, and slow them down." Izona chuckled. "The Empire has perhaps five Magi stronger than the pair of you, who possess more than one affinity. Quite a few at your level but only a single affinity, mostly fire or air." Her smile was rather wicked, and she nodded. "Absolutely none at my level though." Theo thought about that. "As much as you've trained with magic, is there a way to set a Magical trap that cancels magic over a vast area? If we could take out all their spellcasters with one shot, that would remove their artillery capability, as well as some of their medical recovery ability." IT was a real ruthless strategy, and it surprised many. Izona nodded. "I can do that, but It would be all I do so long as I maintain the effect, assuming you want our allies to still be able to use their magic, and I would need a very capable defender, as i won't be able to move much while doing so." Ryan nodded. "I'll do it." He looked to the three women he came with. "This will be your fight to win then, We'll just make sure you've got a fair chance."
  7. Introductions and greetings made, they finally head inside the main part of the Castle, and Were shown to their rooms, where they'd be staying, and then on to the Council Room. While not the official audience hall, this room allowed Theo to be frank, and them as well, and with so much to catch up on, It was agreed this was for the best. Once everyone was seated, began the tale, Starting with the subjugation of the surrounding Lords. Because Ryan was having Theo take the surrendered Crests, his own legend had grown immensely, In just a short month, he'd become known as the Indomitable Swordsman. Tori was the Mistress of the Steel Sky. Which brought a flush of anger and embarrassment to her face when it was said aloud. The two of them were responsible for the early victories, Allowing Theo to build and train his own Army, preparing them to engage the larger powers. It was the Kingdom that had first approached them, With Crown Prince Elias coming to parley in person. It was at this parley that they learned a welcome truth. Elias was still in love with Marina, The Crown Princess of the Empire. Spies had been sent out to ascertain her feelings, and reported it was the same for her, but her duty to her people forced her to Fight for dominance. She would defeat all other lords, and be crowned Empress, so that the war abhorring Elias would not have to fight. Theo himself had promised to make Elias' wish a reality, and in exchange for Official recognition and support, The new nation or Sarnarium was created It was sandwiched between the Empire and the Kingdom, but accounted for nearly eighty percent of their shared border. Currently the Imperial army was on the March headed for Sarnarium, but they were still a week's march out from the border. Theo was marshaling his forces, along with those of his subjugated Lords to take the fight to them. Of greater concern was the Imperial Mage Academy, which had tried to forcibly recall all their Magi from the Kingdom and Nation of Sarnarium. None had answered, but they were still well outnumbered. Izona smiled. "Most Imperial magi can use one school of spells at best. All of my protege can use at least 3, and in exchange for abit of research assistance from Tori and Ryan here, I will lend you my own Magic, Lord Theo." The two of them looked to each other, and nodded. "Deal, so long as it's nothing weird." Theo nodded, and then continued. "It is our hope that we can deal with the Empire and force them to sue for peace. If we can triumph, then I will cede my crest to Prince Elias, who would then be crowned as Emperor of a united Empire." "What about Lord Vorn?" Came a question from Yuuki. "He's deceased. The dragons were a pain in the ass, but once Tori and I handled them, it turns out the rampant oppression of the people caused them to rebel, and the military, seeing their dragons slain, simply melted away. In the end, Theo himself was the one to fight Lord Vorn and take his life and crest." He pulled out his phone which drew Izona's gaze. "We've got two of the Objectives accomplished now, since you two learned Magic. with two more in reach. I think the 5th will end once we finish number six." Ryan gave a smile and sat back down. "So that's where we are. The Empire's marching here with two hundred and fifty thousand troops, and we're preparing to fight them with around seventy thousand. They've got dragons, golems, wyverns and other beasts, as well as more Magi than us."
  8. Izona smiled "Of course, take us to your new home." What followed was Yuuki chanting the aria for her spell and their teleportation to the castle gate. "Spirits of Life and Death, Shapers of Silent Fate Hear my Call: My Allies and I Need to Return to the Shelter of Friendly Walls! Take Us Up and Bear Us Away in your Grasp, Past Danger, Past Fury, All of Us Gathered Here: Our Safe Passage Through the Howling Void, I Entrust to You, Void of All Fear. We are Your Children. Take Us Home. Spirits Hidden High in the Sky and Deep in the Loam. Order Sign! Towngate!" The magic symbol shone brightly on the ground beneath them and the spell began and enveloped them Preceded by a massive shining magical symbol, The castle guard was alerted and quickly roused to stand ready for whoever was coming. Ryan came at a run, along with Tori who took to the sky in the Banshee, as Siluca and Theo were running behind Ryan. When three forms took shape Ryan still hadn't drawn his blade, and he smiled. "It's about time they finished. We've got so much to catch up on." There was a flash of white light and Yuuki and Vesper were there with a woman he didn't know. Still she had a set of wings seeming coming from just above her hips and a halo of light. "Cool, a Celestial. Nobody told me we had those. I guess that means demons are a thing here too?" The two natives looked at him with shocked expressions, and then a look of almost resignation. "Does nothing Faze you?" "Sure, just nothing like this. besides they're friends." Flabbergasted the duo motioned for the gates to be opened and together they went out to meet them. Having learned a new trick herself, Tori brought the Banshee in low, and then unsummoned it, walking up slowly behind them. For Vesper and Yuuki They were both very aware of the look in Izona's eyes, having been subjected to her intense curiosity and scrutiny for a year. It was up to them if they wanted to warn the other two, even as the quartet strode to them. "Come in my friends, Welcome back home. I trust your training was successful?"
  9. Izona smiled. "Well you two have come along so well, I think your friends will be really surprised." Izona finished cooking and had sat down to eat, making her own decision. "When you leave here, I will go with the two of you. I have studied you, but there are two others from your world. Perhaps studying them will let me get the last information i need to find a way off this world before the death of all its magic." It was a bold declaration on her part, Something that didn't seem like it would ever have happened at first.
  10. With the lord beaten, soon his remaining forces were headed home, he would be brought to Theo, where he'd surrender officially. Theo held no grudge, and granted him a subordinate crest, to rule his former lands in Theo's name. Needless to say, the Standing army of the dukedom was beside itself. They'd never seen two people defeat twenty thousand, backed by Wyvern riders. The dead Wyvern was taken, its bodyparts useful for crafting weapons and armor, and as magical catalysts. Theo pulled the two of them aside later, and thanked them. "I've never heard of such power, but my friends, thank you for protecting this land and its people. More than that, you showed them that what I want isn't endless bloodshed, but justice. I am not foolish enough to think there won't be blood spilled on this path, but with you at my side, I know there will now be much less. Word of your battle will spread, and most will be very reluctant to react without thought and consideration." At Izona's home, the trio ate, speaking of simple things, and then it was back to training. At least now they knew why she always seemed to be staring at them. She was watching how they used mana, how it acted, and trying to see if it was compatible. She knew they were not quite ready for Level Four and Five spells, so she continued with the third tier spells, and increasing their mastery up to that point. What this served to do was to lessen the load on them, making the spells easier to cast, and surprisingly, she was able to to teach them how to activate the spells without the full incantations, which while cutting the power of the spells, let them fire them off much faster than any other mage. Izona smiled at them. "Well, it has been a year. I've taught you what was safe to within that time. I'm sure you're both ready to return to your friends. Why don't we go out, get cleaned up, and then I can bring you to them, and you can catch up?" Izona hadn't changed at all in the entire time they were there, which in and of itself seemed odd, and gave credence to her self stated otherworldliness.
  11. I'd be fine with a return within a day or so of the fight against the Bear. I do question whether that would render all the talks on the Keys, and the actions Sean and Abel took to prevent further unlocking moot, and whether we'd all retain the memories of those talks and actions. I will admit that I, the player, never liked that whole aspect of things (keys are aberations outside the original irregulars), but it certainly added some real drama to what the Irregulars were doing, and hammered home their ability to affect the whole world. There are still so many unanswered questions about Keys in general, admittedly I would like to explore that before we go Scarlet Witch with "No more Keys." Another thing for everyone to consider, the Sara who pushed for those actions was Pandora in disguise, Meaning that was something "She" wanted to happen, and we potentially have a chance to correct the mistake we made with our course of action. God only knows what it might change, but it's something to talk about, to be sure. Also if we did that, would that create copies of us, or would we be essentially superimposed over the Us of that time? I am confused, in what would actually be so chaotic about what you listed, as we didn't fight Pandora on Earth, and outside the project I don't recall anyone knowing about her. Goals 1) Global Advancement- Abel seeks to continue gathering and educating Keys, hoping to help them reach their full potential, both for their betterment, and to the betterment of the entire world. He also plans to work alongside Sean and others advancing Earth's technology and societal levels, helping humanity rise from endless war towards Enlightenment and the Stars 2) Exploration, Eventual Colonization- Both in this Universe, and others. Abel's been to other planets, but he wants to continue seeing new ones, and the Gate technology is still there for humanity to use. In addition, Abel wishes to continue exploring the multiverse with Jeane, starting with the Underverse. This wouldn't be some exclusive deal, Other Irregulars would certainly be welcome. Eventually he'd like to have humanity be worthy of joining the Sentient races of the universe in colonizing new worlds. Yeah, full on Star Trek. Another facet of this is that while the titans are dead, their subordinates aren't (Possibly) and they could still be out there, so The Irregulars and humanity need to be ready for that potential meeting. 3 Mastery- Abel knows he's lacking in some aspects, and seeks to become stronger. Refining his mind, enhancing his powers, Just as he wishes to enable others to reach their potential, he seeks to do the same for himself, striving for excellence, To always continue learning and growing, and fighting against complacency and stagnation.
  12. Izona chuckled as yuuki stepped in to help cook. She was getting things together to make something simple, a spicy chicken curry. The fact the preparations looked the same as in their home wasn't lost on either of the two apprentices. Izona had Yuuki get the rice going. Soon enough everything was ready, and the meal was surprisingly good. "To answer what you didn't ask earlier, I can't show you the spell, because I can no longer perform it. More than that, It was never something written down, it was something only I could do. I had hoped this world had such magic, or that someone here might create it, but in all my time here, I have yet to hear of such, or meet someone like that. Then Siluca comes by wanting me to teach two young women from another world the magic of this world. Of course I would agree, I want the chance to study you, to see if the mana you possess has the same capability as mine once had." She looked over to Vesper. "I learned Light magic from the Sage of Conviction, a Archmage from before the founding of the Grand Magic Academy. From there, I traveled around, searching the other archmagi, and learning from them. I've learned from all levels of magi, As different people have different views, and each has helped my mastery of Magic grow." ------------------------- The Lord Spat out a string of curses, even As Ryan moved, closing the gap in a moment, and batting away the Lord's sword. His blade against the Lord's throat, even as the Lord fell to his knees, yet So precise was Ryan's control that he didn't even nick him. "Surrender, or die." Above Tori was lining up another shot on one of the flying Wyverns, andthe lord nodded, "I surrender." The soldiers all fell to their knees in defeat. Ryan lowered his sword and pulled out the phone. "Tori, put the gun away, just knock out the rampaging one. This is over, they're beaten." She did as she was asked, and it took a single punch to lay out the riderless wyvern. The other two landed, and Ryan stood there. "Have your men return home. Send the riderless wyvern back with the two you've got left. There's probably enough rope left for you to have them carry it in a sling together." Quickly the lord issued orders to that effect, and the remaining soldiers did as they were bid. The lord was still kneeling, and Ryan was standing there with him. Tori was using the banshee to help rig the sling to carry the unconscious wyvern. "Why spare them?" "My lord has his own aspirations. Killing your people would only make them harder to achieve. If You'd have at least been civil when We first met, None of them would have had to die. We pulled the trigger, but you have the order that made it necessary. Still, we don't want to kill anyone if we don't have to, so there's no good reason for your men to die. There will be other battles, and now that your title and lands belong to Lord Theo, your men may be called upon to defend them still. All the better then that they live through this encounter." "That is not the way things are done here..." "And I'm given to understand you've only known constant war for at least a century. This way, well, Most of your men live to return to their families, to protect their home instead of attacking others. Which do you think they would prefer?"
  13. "I only know of One who left one world for another, aside from you and your friends." She smiled "And that would be me. My old world perished, and I alone was able to escape it, by making some sacrifices. The spell that let me come here was a one shot spell, then mana of this world is simply incompatible with it, so here I've remained all this time. I learned this world's magic, nearly all of it, to pass the time. It's actually pretty inferior in many regards to my world's magics, but It lets me keep the charade up as a unique "Ancient race" from the world's prehistory." She just smiled, after admitting to essentially conning the whole world as to who she was. "I'm hoping that after training you, and within the knowledge you gave me, there's some way for me to go to another world. I've learned all I really want to learn from here, and I'd rather not be stuck here if there's no magic." She looked at them both with a more ominous smile. "And now you know the price I ask for learning the higher tier magic." --------------------------------------------------- Elsewhere, The battle against the wyverns continued, with Tori finally freeing herself from the final wyvern, stabbing it, and knocking it away. Once clear, she drew the beam canon and fired, the shot taking the head and neck from the wyvern, leaving two more flying ones, and the grounded one, which was currently engaged against the Lord's remaining troops, rampaging as it was riderless. The Lord traded blows again with Ryan, and it was clear to see Ryan was just toying with him now. "Look man, you're a lord, you gotta put on a brave act for your people, but you're beaten. Yield now, and you walk away with your life at least. Hell, Lord Theo may even grant you a subordinate crest to continue ruling your lands in his name."
  14. With all three remaining wyverns in the air attacking, her sudden maneuver did shake two of them, still, the one she stabbed didn't die after the second stab, even as they rocked into the air. The other two wyverns ascended trying to catch the metal titan, while on the ground, Ryan traded steel with the Lord himself. The Lord was a good swordsman, and used to fighting with his battle ability enhancement, but Ryan's was literally like a second Skin, and he knocked the Lord back, nearly halfway across the circle. "Come on, man. You're a Lord, you've got a master crest's ability buff, and You're still only this good? I was hoping to fight a real swordsman." his words were meant to enrage, and they did, as the air was filled with the Lord's invective against Ryan, even as he came in hard for another series of attacks.
  15. "You're not grasping it Vesper. Here in the real world, it's been two weeks. Each hour out here, was a full day in my dimension. You've both been training for six months and change already, and we're about halfway done." Izona answered her patiently. "I could train you longer, but you both said only a month out here was allowable. It would be at least that to get you both into fourth and fifth tier spells, so I'll do what I can to use the rest of time to see you master third tier spells." she seemed quite happy with herself, even as she moved to the Kitchen to start cooking. "Any requests for meals? I can make pretty much anything here in my kitchen. Maybe you'd like to get a bath? the third door on that hallway to the right. It would be good for you both to relax abit."
