    [Skies Over Watch ==> Cessie's World]

    Some of the Watchmen may see a winged figure flying away from the Tower. Some may even recall that this is the direction the sky ship took when leaving for Harnel and Cessie's wedding.

    The figure is currently dressed in some of his more lax clothing, though fit for cold weather; fur lined coat and cloak being foremost. the longcoat is enchanted especially; normally it's made so that a normal individual can wear it without dealing with holes in the back, but it adjusts for the wings that Harnel has.

    On his back, under the cloak is a rucksack with everything he needs for the next little while, or even may need; rations good for two weeks, a large tent, one hundred and fifty feet of rope, a bag of rubber balls, a collapsible twelve foot pole (comes in two-foot increments), a grapling hood, a periscope, a hacksaw, a bonesaw, a crowbar, a shovel, three sacks, four changes of clothing, two of which are fit for nobility (and all of which are shaped for a being that doesn't have draconic wings and tail), chalk, a lantern, lantern oil, a large bag of sand, dice of various sizes and shapes, three swords, two of which are greatswords made of adamantine as well as Conflict, an adamantine dagger, a mirror, a pound of soap, several logs of cedar wood, pitch, a cooking pot, spices, flint and a tinderbox, the softhand gloves he got from Azik, an adamantine suit of chainmail, a suit of platemail (shaped for a human), and finally a watch.

    Why yes, it is a bag of holding. Why do you ask?

    In any case, Harnel will pass through the waypoint between Cessie's world and the Nexus at this point. If anything wants to stop him like Libra did the first time, now is it's chance.

    No entities comes to greet him as he passes through the portal, instead he's greeted by a icy wind which cuts right through his clothes. There really is no kind of clothing that protect you from this weather and this wind.

    But something have changed from his last visit to this desolated wilderness as there is now a zeppelin tower constructed near the portal and as he get's closer a loud voice cuts through the air.

    THIS IS THE NORTH GUARD, YOU ARE NOW UNDER HESTOPIAN LAW, SURRENDER AND GET DOWN ON THE GROUND OR WE WILL FORCE YOU TO!!!

    Oh my, that's not good.

    Harnel doesn't even bother looking for the source of the voice, knowing that it's probably being projected via magic. Instead he touches down on the ground in front of the zeppelin tower and waits for the ever so obvious "Guards surround the suspect" thing that always seems to to happen when you're threatened by guards in a new area. He also concentrates, bolstering his innate magic resistance; hopefully that will be enough if someone tries to restrain him beyond physical means.

    Honestly, this just seems so... common. Still, Harnel was expecting to have to travel for days to get to Hestopia, not appear inside it directly. He can't help but wonder what changed.

    As soon as the half dragon lands he is indeed surrounded, but not by guards, but by various elemental types. A group of air elementals block the air ways while a group of large white colored earth elementals attempts to restrain him physically, grabbing both his wings and arms. What kind of stone these elementals are made of are hard to see, but they feel very cold and aren't especially gentle in their approach.

    Oh, well, isn't that pleasant?

    Harnel just sighs and reaches into his rucksack, before drawing Conflict and another greatsword out of the bag. He'll hold the swords out, showing that the elementals shouldn't get any closer. If they do, they're liable to be cut apart. It occurs to me that the bag being able to hold the greatswords would be fairly remarkable

    "I'd rather be civil and talk face to face with a living person, you know. I've never been a particularly big fan of mindless elementals, and I happen to be a nobility. Maybe we can talk and avoid things getting messy on either end. I imagine you don't want to deal with the paperwork and problems that'd come out if my claim ends up being true."

    Diplomacy roll!

    PUT THE SWORD DOWN NOW AND YOU WON'T BE HARMED!!! The voice repeats while the elementals are getting just outside the reach of his sword, creating a literal choke point around him.

    "Call you elementals off and I will! I'm not here for a fight, but I won't let myself be threatened. I've complied with your request to come to the ground but this has to work both ways if we want to avoid a scene." Harnel says, still holding both swords out.

    The elementals back away quite a bit but appear ready to jump him if he makes any sudden moves. A brief silence follows before the voice speak again. PLEASE APPROACH THE BLACK PLATFORM TO YOUR RIGHT!!!

    The circle of elementals open up a bit, allowing him to move to the right, in the direction of a large black platform which have been put in the middle of the snowy tundra.

    Harnel will - slowly - sheathe the swords back into his rucksack, and begin to move in the direction of the platform, not really paying much mind to the elementals now that their master has ordered them off.

    As he does this, he pulls the Softhand Gloves out of his pack, and begins pulling them on. As he does so, his body will take on a more neutral appearance of a human being. His wings recede into his back, and his tail disappears into his tailbone, the clothing closing up behind the disappearances. Even the wrappings he had over his draconic feet change into a pair of boots for his new human feet. As for his face, it remains much the same, but now his face is lacking the draconic features he had before; no more scales, no horns, no slitted eyes. He is recognizably the same to those who know him, but the blue-eyed, black haired man standing there now is pure human, at least as appearances go.

    As the half-dragon steps on the platform a complex web of black metal instantly appears around Harnel which then is covered by a force shield. He will find this to be practically impossible to bypass as his magic resistance won't be able to help him past the web.

    Moments later a fog surrounds the cage he's now in and a group of stern looking men and women dressed in white camouflage clothing starts to approach him. Surrounding them are countless of defensive spells which mostly obscures them. It's hard to tell if these soldiers are mages or soldiers however considering they are all armed with swords and other weapons and are wearing the same of white clothing, with only badges on their shoulders differentiating them from each other.

    "Who are you and why are you here?" The speaker asks firmly as some of the others moves around the portal and the platform.

    Harnel won't struggle against the bindings, just sighing, his face taking on a bored expression, "Harnel Mithar. A friend of mine had her ability to bear children stolen by winter fey. I came to get it back. The portal from the Nexus must have been unstable; there wasn't an airship tower the last time I came through. Unless it's a recent construction? I haven't come to this world in months, after all."

    "We have had no confirmation that anyone would be using this portal." The officer replies. "Unless you have anything to support your claim you have to wait until we can get such confirmation from our agents." She informs the half-dragon as the rest of the group seems to have disappeared within the mists once again.

    "I've got my wedding rings - both of them - but beyond that you may have to take me at my word," Harnel says going over to one of the force-field walls and pressing a now human hand against it. He tests the texture of it, and wonders how well it'll stand up to Conflict if worst comes to worst.

    "Then why didn't you report the fact you were going to use the portal first? Our agents should know this procedure by now." But apparently Cessie haven't found a need to inform Harnel about this new development in Hestopia.

    "Perhaps by dint of the fact that My wife and I aren't your agents? I'm Harnel Mithar, and my wife is Cessie Mithar. We've received no information regarding any sort of confirmation before traveling through the portal." Harnel says, crossing his arms. He's glad for the fur coat he brought with him, given how cold it is here.

    "I'm afraid I have to correct you there sir, Cessie Mithar is one of our agents and she have not reported that her husband is going to use the portal today. She should know this." The officer replies, having shown not emotion at all during their entire conversation.

    Harnel chuckles and presses a hand to his forehead, "Of course..."

    "I didn't tell her about this trip; she always objects to me doing adventurous things, and this is too important for me to let her talk me out of it, so I planned for the trip in secret. Still, you should know my description then, right? You saw what I looked like when I came through; I'm wearing a pair of gloves that make me look human, because I know Hestopians aren't terribly comfortable with half-dragons."

    "I'm not going to involve myself in your marital disputes but our procedure demands that I should at least contact her for confirmation of your identity. The security around the portal have tightened to met the dangers on the other side. I hope you understand." She informs Harnel.

    "I'm sorry, but there isn't really. We have no other agents we believe could confirm your identity or whereabouts. The instant we have confirmed it though you will be free to go as soon as you sign some documents." She explains to the half-dragon.

    The officer smiles faintly which is her first real expression during their entire conversation. "You don't say? But we'll go ahead with the confirmation, just wait a minute."

    It takes a couple of moments until Harnel hears the familiar voice of his wife. Harnel?! What in the void do you think you're doing?!

    Are you implying this is my fault somehow? Why would I have told you about that? I never expected you to go to Hestopia on your own to risk your life. Cessie replies as the officer looks at Harnel.

    "I am," Harnel says, flatly, "Can I come out of the cage now?"

    Because maybe I might want to get you something from your homeland sometime? Maybe I might want to bring one of our children here? Maybe I want to see what it's like in this world without expecting my wife to hold my hand through everything? I'm not helpless, Cessie, and I'm here to get something for Zelia.

    You're saying you would bring one of our children there without telling me about it Harnel? If you ever had mentioned you had interest in traveling to Hestopia I would have told you. I never imagined you would go there without telling me first though. The sorceress replies.

    "In a minute, would you be so kind to put all the items you have on the platform first? It's very important none of these items get out into our world so we must confirm none of them are gone once you return."

    When they were older, sure. If nothing else, I want them to have a diverse knowledge base. Maybe learning about Hestopian culture first hand, for instance. You know very well I've been interested in coming to Hestopia, Cessie; I told you about it before.

    Harnel complies, taking everything out of his rucksack. There's... far, far more than should fit in the bag, even if it is a fair sized bag. The swords alone are too large for it, "Obviously, if I return with less of the food I have here, then it'll have disappeared for a reason."

    Yes, but coming there without telling me about it? I'm not sure how you expect me to tell them you are going thorough the portal without me actually knowing you're going through. He can almost hear her roll her eyes.

    "Obviously." The officer repeats as she writes down every item in his inventory.
