    Default [Nexus] Random Places and Plots 5

    This is a thread for plots not large enough to need a separate thread, or locations that don't fit anywhere else. If you'd like a location permanently indexed in the first post, PM me.

    Longer lasting or more serious plots might fit better in the Srs Plots thread. Lulzy plots go here. If you aren't sure which thread fits your plot best, then just pick whichever one is less busy at the time.

    Rules:
    1. Use [Location Tags] or [Plot Tags] on your posts.
    2. Each Location or Plot is under the control of its creator.
    3. Play nice.

    Sadei points up ahead. "I can see a cave in the front of the rock. They might get in through there."

    And it might be easier to get inside now that the guards have been dispatched! Dispatched guards are much easier to get around.

    "I don't see anyone else close. And I don't think the people up high heard anything either."


    How nifty!

    Sadei turns her attention to the young caster lady!

    "Probably just because there isn't anywhere to find a focus in your home!" Agatha replies. "After all, you can use Shaping without a focus. So if your world doesn't have them then no one would ever know about it."

    Huh...

    That...

    Actually makes a lot of sense.

    Agatha leads Hildur into the abbey and up to the second story of the building.

    Must be where the library is.

    "Tera is kind of grumpy," she warns. "So we have to be quiet."

    Hildur nods at that explanation. It did make sense to her. She did still doubt it a little, but she won't actually say that.

    Once they reach the second floor, and Hildur is warned to be quiet, Hildur just nods again and falls into silence as they keep walking.

    Sister Agatha tip toes into the library and hunts around for the librarian.

    Which is to say-

    "PSSSSSST!" not so quiet whisper! "Sister Tera!"

    The Nun in question glares around a corner of Agatha. And the older woman totally looks the part of a librarian, too!

    "Hildur wants to read some books on Air Shaping!" come on Agatha... that isn't quiet at all...

    Tera points at a nearby shelf, then gestures at Agatha to leave. Agatha just shrugs and walks off out of the library!

    ...

    Which lives Hildur to find her book. Apparently on the shelf that was just pointed at?

    Hildur finds it funny that Agatha can't see to be quite, and it's hard for her not to laugh, but she manages to remain silent. Rather than thanking Terra for her help, she just smiles at her.

    Then she walks over to the shelf that was pointed at, to see these books on air Shaping.

    Terra doesn't smile back.

    She doesn't seem like a terribly cheerful person.

    Anywho!

    Books!

    There are lots of books here on Shaping. Some on general theory. Some on famous Shapers. Some on crafting and working the various foci. Some one specific elements of Shaping...

    [Harnel's Birthday Party]

    Harnel sits back and thinks for a moment. How to answer this?

    "She was a girl named Devony. She was young, about seventeen, I think, but she seemed interested in me. Blue eyes and short, curly brown hair, but it ddn't turn out well. In fact, it turned out very badly" His chair moves back onto it's back legs, the front supported by Harnel legs and tail, "We got to talking in a pub one night when we were staying a little town called Reimus. Tomwise wanted to stay in town for a while to do some research the vampires we were hunting at the time, so we had a bit of time to get to know one another. Eventually, she managed to trick me into taking my hood off, and saw that I was a half-dragon. She didn't scream, or panic like some other people would have. She just sort of stared at me, then asked me what it was like to have scales. I think that's the first time I really considered having something with her."

    "But... Well, we were in a dangerous profession. Vampires are intelligent, and knew we were after them. so they got to us through weaker links. Devony was turned before the week was up. When we got to her, she said she didn't blame me. Somehow, I doubt that, but it was kind of her to say. My understanding is that she went back to life as it was beforehand, working on a ranch during the night and getting blood from the cows rather than from people. She seemed happy the last time I saw her."


    Harnel stops there, listening to the sound of the forest around them, wondering whether he should have stopped well before where he did. As it was, he probably killed the mood of the entire party. leaves rustle in the wind and a bird calling can be heard a little further to the south. That was something he'd been holding onto for a long while, and when he started talking about it, it all just came out. It felt... surprising that there was some closure he felt around Devony being happy. Like that made it better, despite what she was turned into.

    He's almost fallen into a trance-like state by the end of that. Cessie, Sakura, and Adir may get the feeling that part of that was him talking to himself more than them, like he needed to hear it.

    Info dump tiiiiiime!

    There's plenty of information on Air Shaping. Its history, its practice, its practical application, uses for Gossamer, suggestions for honing one's skills...

    All sorts of stuff to look into!

    So.

    What is it that Hildur is looking up first?

    Because there are lost of options.

    So many options!

    And so many of them interesting options!

    Hildur decides that she'll look up the practical applications first. She'd rather like to know exactly how she could use this new ability of hers.

    Rot removes his blade from the monster and gives Marciano a frightening grin. With this latest affliction, the vampire has a distressingly large amount of flesh missing and bone showing. He doesn't seem too bothered by this.

    "I like your monster. It put up a good fight."

    He stalks over to the small man to assist him with the crates.

    Air Shaping, the Practical Applications!

    The book is pretty darn long.

    And somewhat rambling.

    It covers a huge range of uses for air shaping! Helping to move ships or even carts with sails. Turning mills to grind grain. Creating air-bubbles to stay under water indefinitely. A fast method of sweeping.

    Very powerful users of Air Shaping are capable of even more amazing feats! Changing the weather by blowing clouds around. Using blasts of air so intense they can shatter stone and metal. Even flight with a properly formed Focus.

    But those are all very advanced tricks.

    Cessie had already heard about the vampires at some point, she didn't know he had gotten romantically involved with one of them though.

    She will attempt to take his hand and give it it a slight reassuring squeeze and wait quite before suggesting, "....so it's your turn now isn't it Harnel?" She says gently, figuring it might be best to change subject now even if it was good he got to come out with this.

    Because the book is so long, Hildur only skims through it this time around, as she has a lot more books to read. But what she does catch is very interesting to her (like shattering metal and staying underwater.) Hopefully she could take all of these books to her room.

    Hildur closes that book and decides to look through the one on honing her skills next.

    Adir stares at Harnel a second after his story is finished, his smile long since gone. He props his head up on his hands, being a little more dramatic than is strictly necessary. "Man, Harnel, you sure know how to bum people out."

    His gaze drifts to Sakura, hoping this next truth or dare will lighten the mood.

    She looks at Dipsnig like he just grew a third eye. What?! NO! My husbands down there! I'll stay out of the way, follow me! I know the way. Get in the elevator. The lower cavern is below. She gets into the elevator and motions for the others to get in. Er....not the big rat. The lift can't handle the weight. It would break. Well...we could try...but if you think the lift can take it then fine...It's a rather old elevator. She waits for the group to decide to see if the giant rat would break the lift, or take a chance that the lift will support their weight.

    Harnel grins, "Nope."

    Harnel is actually a pretty good dancer, and would have said, "Sure, but it has to be me," but Sakura chose Adir to bring her down a bit, so there's no reason, in the half-dragon's mind, to give her any help.

    Dipsnig rubs his face in frustration. He's probably goint to knock all of Marciano's teeth, one by one, just for how much of a pain in the ass this whole fracas is.
    Alright, whatever. You want to get in there, you're free. I'll warn you though - if you try to help that slimeball who cheated us out of our money, you'll be held accomplice. He looks at Furt. And I guess we'll need to have him wait here. I'd rather not have the elevator break.

    Furt, being mostly a dumb beast, isn't aware of all this nonsense chittering's meaning, between his leash-holders and this new-thing he's probably not allowed to eat-maim.

    And until he gets an order, he's just going to sniff, burble and growl, wondering when they can finally get moving towards the scent of the filthy half-thing.
