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?

Points exits the cabin and turns aft. He passes the spiral staircase and several cabins before exiting on the Aft Main Deck.  He looks up and waves as he sees the Captain move back into view through the Bridge window.

The Captain nods and everyone on board, regardless of where they are, clearly hear his voice.  It sounds like he is standing right beside you and is clear and concise. “All hands, we have cleared the beachhead and are now 'feet wet'. All those interested, please report to the forward main deck for a tour of the ship. Sir Sykes, you are free to launch your perimeter patrol. Set Watches, man your weapons. That is all.”

Crew begin to move with more purpose and you may notice that gone are their tight dress uniforms.  They have been replaced with short leggings, bare feet, horizontally striped short sleeved shirts and bandanas. They move with purpose and that purpose is no longer the passengers or their gear.

Moments later at the back of the ship, there is a loud screeching cry and a large dark shape flies aft of the vessel. A few miles back the shape banks and turns to the port side.  Those with goggles of minute seeing might be able to make out some details but the shape quickly blends with the sky and is lost from sight.

Points moves back forward and smiles to himself chuckling. “… and so it begins.”

Nklos had tried to stay quiet.  He saw that most of his friends were more interested in the view of the city than he was, and those who were not occupied with the view seemed engaged taking care of friends or lovers.

This suit him just fine.  This was the excitement Nklos had been looking for.  This was a chance to spit in a dragon's eye.  To meet the family in Aerenal that wanted his head so badly.  All that being said he could not get his mind away from the city.  Probably how it always is though, worrying about the other side of the coin.  He was sure that Dravago would be able to handle a greater share of the care for Oli.  Besides Lilly wanted to help with that...

Other things had bugged him though.  The notes Eildre had passed him a week or so before.  He had not  come much closer to finding a permanent cure for Amber.  New friends he had hoped would join on the expedition were no where to be seen.

Nklos stepped down off the railing he walked steadily deep in thought.  As he circled around Zoltando, attempting to not interrupt his view or thought.  completing his second or third circuit around the ship.  With a shrug he decided that it did not matter yet at this point.  He would teleport into the city in a day or two to check on things.  Until then he should just enjoy the ride.

"Hmm.  Man your weapons."  The words of the captains announcement catch Nklos interest.  Sounds like something to look for.

::In the Fellowship Common room::

 

::Taking a deep sigh, Aurelueithil let her shoulders slump, and in doing so, used the slight forward movement as momentum to roll forward into the center of the common room, twisting her body like a cat’s to come up facing the corner, her emerald eyes flashing, two slender, deceivingly delicate short swords appearing in her hands, the thigh sheaths camouflaged against the fine armor that hugs her muscular legs adjusting to the loss of their contents.  With honed senses now operating on adrenaline, she examines the corner and the cause of the movement.::

Jeatra quickly tugs on Lyrica's hand, her faith brimming with excitement. "A tour! I hope we'll get to see the whole ship!" She grinned, turning away from the railing just in time to miss whatever shape had appeared and vanished in an instant.

What Jeatra was most interested in though was seeing the more secret areas of the ship. Casually she glanced around at the other people on the deck hoping that none of them could read her mind. After all, she thought, it wasn't like she was really interested in stealing anything. She just wanted to get a peek and satisfy her curiosity.

Deriaz panics for a slight moment on hearing "feet wet", but realizing he was still on dry wood, he relaxes. His interest began to fade again as he returned his gaze to the water rushing below, until the call for weapon manning reaches his ears. "I assume that means no tour," he rumbles to himself.

The warforged makes a note of the crew's costume change, but files it away thinking it was garb more suited for air travel. It made sense to him -- the clothes looked a bit more comfortable, less clothing getting caught by the large amounts of wind. . .

 He contemplates asking one of the nearby crewmen about a quick direction to the cargo hold, but his throughts are rattled at the screeching noise. His eyes pulse once as he looks around, trying to find the shape. Making out nothing of recognition, he turns to Points.

"Where do you want me?" Deriaz asks, shrugging the shield on his arm.

::Chuckles lightly at Jeatra’s enthusiasm over a tour, continuing her impromptu tune, only to let it trail off as the sight of the large shape vanishes off into the distance. Squinting her eyes, Lyrica was unable to make out what it had been, “I am going to see what is going on by the main deck.” Holding her pipes in one hand she heads towards the bow of the ship, watching the men work and keeping her ears open for sign that the crew is doing more than just ‘manning the weapons”.::

He wasn't sure what it was that was bothering him, but something was.  Maybe it was just the tone that Points used with him, or the relatively cold shoulder he got, but Teldyn felt very hurt.  He looked back to the others, and when he overheard that all the bunks were full, he sighed and looked over the side of the boat a moment.

Then a few soft words later..., he was gone, standing in the kitchen of the familiar guild hall.

Versatillas smiles.  This is the moment he's been waiting for.  Finally, with everyone gathered around, he heads for the fore deck of the ship to join them on the tour.  Nothing but smiles he hesitates looking around at the call to arms and the shriek.  Trying to identify the sound he shrugs after a moment, if he's heard it it's either not dangerous or he hasn't fought one for some time.  He waits eagerly for the tour, nothing but grins.

A small smile flits across Aluatris' face as at last the call for the tour comes, only to fade just as quickly when the captain continues with a call for arms. Hesitantly, she makes her way to the deck. Her hand creeps towards the hilt of her sword as she arrives at the appropriate deck, then pauses and pulls away. Was she expected to be armed and ready? Or was that perhaps a specific group of people? Her eyes narrowed curiously as they stopped flashing back and forth between the hilt and the captain. Were they already in such danger that they needed to man their weapons?

Then she noticed the crew. Their demeanor had changed with their clothing, that much was evident. But why... that was harder to tell. For the first time since she stepped foot on the airship, she felt a twinge of fear. Something was definitely afoot.

'What have I gotten myself into...?'

In the corner of the Fellowship common room a panel stands open in the normally solid wall. A tall bearded human in purple and green armor is coming out of a side tunnel into the room. When he hears the slide of drawn steel he throws up his empty hands and shouts “Don’t hurt me!”

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

Points looks at Deriaz and pats him on the arm. “Don’t worry Big Blue, standard practice when entering or leaving a port.  Pirates are often watching the ports for undefended craft.  We’re just taking the precaution of being ready for them should they be so foolish.” Points pulls on Deriaz’ arm.

“Careful, that hatch there…” he points to the large slatted platform on Deriaz’ right, “That goes straight down to the lower holds.  Fall down that and you might go all the way out the bottom. Just stand here with me and you’ll be fine.”

Seeing more people come out on deck Points waves them over. “Come on over here folks.  Gather round.  We will start the tour off in just a moment.  We want to give everyone a chance to get here. It would be a shame for them to miss it.”
