    Crash Site

    "Ah, right. I sure hope he knows what he's doing, does he by any chance know calculate the correct chemical balance of the cloning machine? It's likely an imbalance in the centrifuge is the reason it's offline." The goblin explains before going off to look at what probably are the mana cells and shakes her head. "Is there any chance a mountain and a island are nearby?"

    [Crash Site - Kirk]

    "Low attention span suggests low intelligence!" The robot tells the drow as it starts to chase him with the broom. It moves slowly enough for him to get away and open the door though... where a small goblin-like creature with a back shell jumps at his face.

    "Akwi-piki!" It exclaims and attempts to grapple on to his face and pull his nose.

    He might have got a glance at the room before the little creature attacked him though. It's by far larger then any of the other rooms and looks like some kind of mess hall with tables and chairs thrown all over the place.

    There is also a large machine there which he might not be able to look much closer at due to the goblin in his face.

    Kuko shrugs at the first question. "More likely than I do. You lost be at chemical balance," he says. Technology is more a fascination for him than it is an area of expertise. "And your on a mountain, but I don't know about a lake."

    "Son of a-" Kirk is cut off by the small goblin assaulting his face. The drow takes a couple stumbling steps backward as he tries to tear the goblin away.

    Crash Site

    "Great! Gather the clones and.. wait, you said the other clones were dead. That could be a problem..." The goblin says with an thoughtful expression before turning to look at Kuko again. "You don't know where I could get some decent help around here do you? Like that elf boy."

    [Crash Site - Kirk]

    The goblin will attempt to tear off some of Kirk's hair before he can get it off him and then run away in the direction of the machine.

    The machine looks like a black dome with a small door that makes it look like a little house. Attached to it however are various tubes filled with strangely colored chemicals and some sort of control panel that the goblin-creature currently is running for.

    If that's not enough, he can feel a broom poking the back of his head. "I'd suggest you leave before you further embarrass yourself." He hears the robot suggest in it's monotone voice.

    Hair doesn't tear out quite that easily, thankfully, and Kirk is going to do whatever he can to stop it from continuing with that. Assuming the goblin still lets go and Kirk doesn't have to try and stab it to death, he looks around the room.

    His scowl becomes even more pronounced when he's prodded. He spins around and tries to yank the broom out of the robot's hand.

    Kuko smiles brightly when she asks for help. "Look no further! Just like I said, you landed in front of Clan NO. We're a mersen-airy clan, which means we help people with their problems." Someone here still doesn't quite get what mercenary actually means. "I can take you to the boss, Dipsnig, and he can pick out clan members who can help."

She sticks her nose out first and then her muzzle and sticks her tongue out for some air, then she pushes with her back paws to get her the rest of the way out. She's having a great time...

    Thecla's pushing results in the pile of cubs shifting and the pups themselves land on the floor, Morry still on top. They seem to be pretty confused about this development.

    Viima, meanwhile, pads over to Karalgen to greet her.

    There is usually some loose hair though but no matter, the goblin creature runs away as Kirk grabs the broom from the robot. "Thief! Your behavior could be traced back to your genetic and upbringing which means it's likely your family were thieves as well!" The robot exclaims.

    As he looks around he will be able to see a ladder leading straight up. Other points of interests would be the large double-door to the right and the various curious tools which are laying around on the floor. Otherwise it's the large dome machine which takes up most of the space in the hall which now the shell-goblin is doing something with.

    Crash Site

    "Excellent! Let me just get my note book..." The goblin says before she runs off to get a note block and a pen for herself. "Now lead on!" She says before putting on her helmet once again.

    "We should probably collect my clansmen first," Kuko says scurrying toward the kitchen. "Then I can take you to the boss. It would be irresponsible to just leave him." And rude.

    "Yes, my family was full of backstabbing, murderous, thieves and otherwise vile people." Kirk snaps the broom over his knee and tosses the pieces to the side.

    The drow urns his attention away from the bothersome robot ans talks over to the double doors. Once there he'll try an push them open to see what's on the other side.

    To say that Dipsnig barely reaches Nalhiir's knees would be an exaggeration, probably. He's about 120 centimeters tall.
    The goblin frowns a little when he heads Sigil cant but manages to work out what Nalhiir is saying quickly.
    If it's mercenaries you want, you've come to the right place. Why don't we sit down and talk about the details?
    He gestures to the several armchairs located in the room.

    Upon looking a second time, Nalhriir realizes that the goblin is not quite as short as he first appeared. Nalhriir is tall, but he's not that tall.

    Hearing Dipsnig's offer, Nalhriir bows slightly and indicates for the mercenary leader to lead him where he will. "I take it yer the top blood o' the group?"

    That I am, yes, Dipsnig says as he sits in an armchair and motions to another one in front of it. Name's Dipsnig Razortooth. I've been running the place for a few years. Now, what is it that you need us to do?

    Nalhriir takes the proffered seat, and Dipsnig will see his wings recede back into his body so he can sit comfortably. The shadowy creature takes up an attentive position behind Nalhriir's right shoulder.

    "Pleasure t' meet ye, Dipsnig. Me tag's Nalhriir, and as I've mentioned, I need ye t' provide me some bodies.

    Before I get into too much detail, though, how much do ye know o' the greater multiverse? The planes and the Great Wheel, an' all?"

    Taking up the two pieces of the shattered broom the robot gives them what appears to be a sad look. It then turns it's head towards the drow currently attempt to open the doors.

    "I wouldn't-"

    It starts as the doors, possibly thanks to Kirk's effort, suddenly open by themselves causing a large number of rocks and ruble to fall out upon him.

    "-do that."

    Crash Site

    Kuko can hear a loud rumble from down below as he heads down, probably just in time to see the rocks fall.

    "An great idea, if that elf boy don't know how the clone machine work I wouldn't trust him with it." The goblin exclaims as she climbs down after him.

    Not a whole lot, I'm afriad, Dipsnig says. I've never concerned myself with metaphysics, much less metaphysics of other worlds. His homeworld is not connected to the Great Wheel.

    An expression of disbelief flits across Nalhriir's face, how these people could live in ignorance of what was all around them astounds the planar.

    "In that case, I might jus' give ye the long an' short o' it, as knowin' specifically what I want isn't necessary."

    Nalhriir pauses and pulls a flask out from underneath the folds of his cloak. He takes a swig and stows it again.

    "Anyways, I was doin' me own thing in the planes when I get shoved through a portal that had no business existin' where it did. So that portal up and dumps me in this Nexus, which leaves me stranded here 'til I can find meself a door out."

    "That's where ye and yer jinkbashers come in. By all accounts this Nexus seems t' be a demi-plane o' some sort akin t' the prime in nature, but more malleable. Lookin' fer doors in a place this big could take a body centuries an' he still wouldn't've found a tenth o' the buggers. So my proposal is simple, I hire out any and all o' yer guild t' keep an ear t' the ground fer any mention o' portals or any signs o' activity. I can show 'em what t' look fer if they need it."


    He stops again, as if considering something. Almost absently, the flask makes its way back into his hand and he takes another drink.

    "Come t' think o' it, I've got another job fer any of yer cutters that are 'specially wise t' the workin's o' the planes, if yer willin' t' take a second contract fer me."

    Oh dammit. Kirk throws himself backward and lands with an awkward roll. He narrowly avoids the rocks, but not without hurting his shoulder. He gets to his feet, muttering a curse or two as he does so.

    Dipsnig rolls his eyes inwardly. Another guy who's surprised noone in the Nexus knows how his homeworld works. Oh well. His money is as good as anyone else's.
    Keeping an ear to the ground is easy. Our members go to places and know people. The other job might be a little harder, depending on what it's about. Give me the details and I'll tell you if any of our members has the knowledge you need.

    "It's like this, I lost me memory a few turns back, and I was goin' about findin' it again. What that led me t' was a young dazzler tellin' me that he'd found me on someplace called the ordial plane."

    Nalhriir grins suddenly, "If ye've never heard o' it, that's cause it don't exist, not that any cutter's come back and said it has, leastways. But seein' as it was the only lead I had, I went about lookin' fer this plane."

    "So now I'm stranded here, and if this place has near as many doors as I think it does, one of them ought t' lead t' the ordial plane. That's what I want that second group fer. I need some bodies to help me root out all knowledge o' this time mephit o' a plane. Be it in spell-slingin', information gatherin' or plain experimentation, if ye'll pardon the pun, I need cutters who can help me chase all this down, an' help me get me memory back."

    I think I have a member or two who's got some experience with this sort of thing. I'd have to ask them whether they feel up for it, but that should be no problem. Of course, if I understood you right, that contract would start once you actually find this Ordial Plane, Dipsnig says.

    Dipsnig's ears twitch. Anyone familiar with goblin expressions will know what it indicates he's thinking deeply.
    Yes, you have. This is a little more problematic, but doable. We don't have many scholars here, but there is one member with such leanings. She might help you.

    [Beast Pens]

    The pile of pups untangles itself into five separate wolves. They all seem pretty amused by the whole situation as well. Thecla is definetly a great new playmate.

    Viima, meanwhile, swishes her tail. She wants Kara to meet her old friend over there.
