    "Well, we could go to the Black Dragon's... Foods pretty good there, at least the stuff that ain't poison." Jasper says, giving her a light kiss on the cheek before rolling onto the ground, reaching out to try and hold her hand in his.

    Jasper glances up at the stars, then back down at Legion, his grin distinctly mischievous now. "Yeah, or.... We could find out what the cuisine's like on other planets. I've always kinda wanted to that. Just pick a star in the sky and go there, see what it's like..."

    I sincerely hope he's joking and understands that stars are not, in fact, planets, but giant clouds of fire and lava. Otherwise he's probably going to get himself killed.

    Legion, thankfully having been a student of modern science, gives Jasper a little smirk. "Uh... probably really cold. And dark. Sorta hard to breath." She's finding it hard not to make fun of him. The laughter creeps into her voice.

    "Well, yeah, but- but I'd go to one of the bright ones! Those can't be cold, because, well, because they're shiny!" Jasper says, trying to sound scientific about it. Not easy, considering he was born in civil war times, and doesn't really have much academic knowledge. He can drive a car or operate a computer, and he can certainly use modern firearms, but scientific theory is well out of his field of expertise.

    Legion breaks down in a short fit of giggles. He sounds like a toddler who got too big for his britches. "Those... those are a little too warm, actually. I'm pretty sure we'd just burn alive." She smiles at him. "You don't know much about space, huh?"

    So he marches up to Lord EtherAin confidently, unless any of the servants come across him first. Either way, he'll address whoever he finds, "Jakob requires a large axe. I have idea that will aid us in the coming fight."

    "Leave! There are more guarding this village, and they'll be here soon!" The leader shouts, and Fade might notice vines growing out of the ground around his feet, trying to grab him and hold him in place long enough for reinforcements to arrive. The others have stopped firing though, as their bullets are obviously having no effect.

    I never said I grap it and I can't really ready anything simular in my post so that doesn't happen. The spell she uses changes the target of a spell which means changing the direction of the spell without provoking the effect of the spell.

    And Fade avoids the veins in an easy way. He just goes on walking through the leader silent.

    I could nitpick on this, but I will not.

    The giant should have no trouble grabbing her... if her can do so through the large amounts of supernatural flame around her.

    The chakram guy throws one of his weapons at fade, and the fellow with the generator fires a large arc of energy toward him. The girl with the spiked boxing gloves throws herself into the giant shadow. She is much stronger than she looks... and obviously has a lot of experience killing things. Even things may times her own size.

    EtherAin Manor

    Jakob is a bit thick, and doesn't notice any discomfort the Lord may be experiencing. He's used to dealing with overt emotions, like uncontrolled bloodlust, or the satisfaction that comes from being the last to stand upon a field of broken enemies. You know, everyday stuff.

    Unless impeded, Jakob will comandeer a servant, (by picking him up by his shirt) and ask for directions to the armory. Assuming he gets the axe without trouble, he'll leave the Manor to begin chopping at the surrounding forest. Of course, if any of the other mercs or the Lord wish to say something to him, there is ample time before he attempts to leave.

    He is... efficient at this. Depending on how much time is left before the fight, whole acres could potentially be cleared in a semi-circle between the two Estates.

    ((Also, how close was the edge of the forest to the walls of EtherAin to begin with? Just for my own visualization purposes.))

    Approaching is a man, five foot ten tall and built like he was carved out of stone, dressed in an austere business suit, shiny black combat boots, sunglasses and a paisley tie. His face is a mass of scars, his teeth capped with metal due to decay, black hair clipped to a buzzcut. At his side, worn quite visibly, is a SIG P226 pistol, a machete slightly better concealed under his jacket. In short, he looks like a professional killer, because that's exactly what he is.

    What is less apparent is that the man is dead as a doornail, a fact well hidden by a tiny gold lapel pin in the shape of a four leaf clover pinned to his downturned collar, which is enchanted with a powerful illusion to conceal his undead nature. No one likes zombies, after all, not even the intelligent ones.

    Scanning the area for hidden snipers as he walks, the killer for hire strides up to the gates and knocks politely, doing his best not to look too eager to murder people. Funny thing about mercenaries is, people expect them to kill for money, but also expect them not to be complete psychopaths. It's right hypocritical, it is.

    River

    "True, but it'd be darn funny to mess with some aliens, maybe carve symbols into their crops or something." Jasper's doing much the same, trying to make out patterns amidst the jumble of tiny, far away stars. "Do you think they've named all these yet? It would be pretty cool to have a pair of stars named after us. Much better than a tattoo with your name on it, in my opinion. Although I have always wanted to get a tattoo..."

    "I think a tattoo would help with the whole... grizzled thing you have going." Legion gestures at him vaguely. "As for stars... I doubt it. But I wouldn't know which ones to pick." Since I'm not sure on the time of day, we'll say it's evening. Mary studies the motes of light curiously.

    Somewhere around dusk, probably, when the stars are just starting to show.

    "It's called "rugged handsomeness" m'lady, and it's part and parcel of bein born in the wild west." Jasper says jokingly. "And the main reason I don't have a tattoo is because I can't decide what to get. Maybe a rabbit kickboxing a snake?"

    Unless impeded, Jakob will comandeer a servant, (by picking him up by his shirt) and ask for directions to the armory. Assuming he gets the axe without trouble, he'll leave the Manor to begin chopping at the surrounding forest. Of course, if any of the other mercs or the Lord wish to say something to him, there is ample time before he attempts to leave.

    He is... efficient at this. Depending on how much time is left before the fight, whole acres could potentially be cleared in a semi-circle between the two Estates.

    ((Also, how close was the edge of the forest to the walls of EtherAin to begin with? Just for my own visualization purposes.))
    If not interrupted by a PC, he commandeers the servant, finds the axe, and gets to work clearing the area around the Manor.

    (Well, it was kind actually ON some trees, as well as being next to some trees, so it was pretty damn close.)

    Quinn is slightly confused by Lord EtherAin's question.

    "...fair for what?"

    Quinn doesn't seem to fully understand what a mercenary contract is.

    Or what a mercenary is, for that matter.

    "Yes!" Molodai proclaims, throwing her arms up a little, clearly quite excited to get started.
    The Lord nods at Molodai before raising an eyebrow at Quinn. "For the Mercenary contract."

    The Lord shrugs with some annoyance. "Just like they don't know much about my own guard, I can't be sure of much information about their guard. We've been fighting so long that such precautions are natural."

His face is a mass of scars, his teeth capped with metal due to decay, black hair clipped to a buzzcut. At his side, worn quite visibly, is a SIG P226 pistol, a machete slightly better concealed under his jacket. In short, he looks like a professional killer, because that's exactly what he is.

    What is less apparent is that the man is dead as a doornail, a fact well hidden by a tiny gold lapel pin in the shape of a four leaf clover pinned to his downturned collar, which is enchanted with a powerful illusion to conceal his undead nature. No one likes zombies, after all, not even the intelligent ones.

    Scanning the area for hidden snipers as he walks, the killer for hire strides up to the gates and knocks politely, doing his best not to look too eager to murder people. Funny thing about mercenaries is, people expect them to kill for money, but also expect them not to be complete psychopaths. It's right hypocritical, it is.
    Pity a lot of them are complete psychopaths. After a few moments the door will open, and the wizened elf will peek out to see who it is. "You're here for the Mercenary contract?" He asks in a voice at contrast with the ugly sort of look.

    "Well, duh. Not like there's any other reasons to be in this pisspot back end of the woods, is there? And considerin how you've been goin about advertising, I doubt you have a single merc capable of finding his own *** without a map, much less helping you outta whatever hole you dug yourself into, so you should be glad I'm here." The undead mercenary winks, sticking his foot in the door and holding out his hand to shake. "The name's Danish, cause me parents assumed I would grow up to be as sweet as me namesake, and I'm a professional killer for hire."

    "That might work. Our emblem was a burning pig with wings, and somehow I doubt that many people have a tattoo of that." Jasper grins, tracing an incredibly poorly-drawn pig in the dirt as he thinks. Art is another skill that he never particularly acquired.

    If they wish to stop him, they'll have to make it a walking conversation, because he's already on the move.

    Alright, well he'll begin a routine of grabbing a tree in one hand, swinging the axe once diagonally to the base of the tree, and hauling the ruined trunk off the ground, leaving a stump and a crater behind as he hauls his new projectile back to the Manor, to be stacked by the wall with the others. He does this tirelessly and without pause until he's called upon. The exact amount of trees cut will depend on the amount of time left before the fight, but there should be at least one to two acres of cleared land between the house and the edge of the forest.

    The land left over is torn and ragged, and should be difficult for a troop of soldiers to travel over by design.

    ((Bladescape, it's up to you to decide how much time it will take before fighting breaks out, but Jakob is expecting a servant to interrupt him at the first sign of hostilities.))

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    "Soooo... what do I do?" Molodai asks, waiting for orders.

    Legion laughs. "Hah! I think it fits." She watches him draw the pig with a lighthearted smile. "And you'd be surprised. Where do you wanna get it?"

    "Hmmm... I dunno... Maybe my shoulder?" Jasper says, adding wings and a poor imitation of fire to the piggy sketch. He thinks for a moment. "Why don't you decide?"

    Legion gives a dry chuckle, rolling over to put her arms around him. "Mm... Okay. But don't complain when you've got a flaming pig tattooed on you butt." She may or may not be joking. Hard to tell.

    Quinn is deeply confused.

    "...Do you need me to give you [Reasonable sum of money]? All I have are these."

    Quinn magically conjures a few gemstones into the Lord's hands. They appear to be worth about 3/4 as much as the reasonable sum.

    The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. This sentence is false. I'm lying.
