    Some other time: Courtyard

    Kirin is in the courtyard, working out. She has to if she wants to keep any muscle on her body... "Use it or lose it" is very literal for her.

    This is made more difficult by the lack of exercise equipment in the keep. She needs to do calisthenics, so she does.

    Specifically, inverted push ups.

    She doesn't even make it look hard.

    [Forge]

    When Wenomir enters the forge area, he may notice that things aren't built the same way a normal forge might. The forge itself is made of a darker material, and burns hotter than just about any other forge he would have come across. The anvil Harnel is working on is wider than normal, and Harnel's hammer glows in his hands. The whole place seems like it'd be inhospitable for most people, given how much of a hotbox it is.

    Obviously, for Harnel, this level of hit is entirely comfortable. "Oh, hello Wenomir. Something I can help you with?" He's breathing heavy, as someone who works hard is wont to do. The metal he was working goes into a barrel filled with water, off to the side of the anvil which lets of a grand hiss of steam making the whole place feel a bit like a sauna.

    [Some Other Time - Courtyard]

    "I've never seen you working out before," Kirin will hear a voice behind her

    "Oh!"


    Kirin will get down from her hand stand. "I need to do it more, truthfully. My body will burn my muscle if I let it. Hey, do you have any equipment around? Like, barbels or anything? Calisthenics are way too easy for me; I need to find something harder to do."

    "Honestly? I've noticed how easy it is for you to move. You don't even look that heavy, but you're lighter than you look." one of the benefits of being a trained warrior; you learn to read people, "I've got something in the armory you might find useful." He'll wave for her to follow, and head into the armor, which is across the front entrance from the forge. Kirin will have been in here a few times, obviously, and it's a bit of a mystery as to what Harnel is talking about.

    "Huh? Oh, sure." She puts her arms out, so that she can be lifted.

    Now, Keo looks about 80 pounds: very underweight. Of course, she basically has some dense muscle instead of any fat at all, so that might put her at 85 to 90? She weighs a bit over 40 pounds: Glaringly obviously too light.

    Harnel will lift her briefly to test her weight and looks appraising, before placing her back on the ground, "Yeah, I've got a way to fix this."

    Harnel will go into the armor and reach into a box that had been sitting under a pile of weapons, "For the most part, I train with weaponry. given the size of it, it keeps me in shape, which is hard to do for someone as strong as I am. But whenever I want to do more normal exercise , like pushups for example, then these are what I use." after a bit of digging, he manages to pull out several bands of adamantine, which he then puts around his wrists, forearms, biceps, thighs, ankles, neck, forehead, horns and several down the length of his tail.

    Honestly? these things look like they weigh dozens of pounds together, and by now kirin knows adamantine weighs about two and a half times as much as steel does, "I can lift over three thousand pounds, but I only weigh three hundred, which leaves for a lot of problems when I'm running for exercise and the like. No way could I fly with all this on, obviously." Harnel, despite the ludicrous weight of what he's wearing, is moving almost normally, "I could make a set for you if you like, just not so heavy."

    It might occur to Kirin that this is how he must have trained for the use of heavy armor.

    Harnel nods, "Show me your claws, please," Harnel puts a hand out, showing Kirin the wicked blades that tip his fingers and thumb. They, of course, are also on his feet. He intends to take her hand while the claws are out so her can look them over, judge how strong they are, and how much damage they could do if applied.

    Kirin shows her claws. They're not too big, but moderately sharp. They could probably cause surface damage, some bleeding if used right, but they aren't really very dangerous. In the hands (no pun intended) of an amazingly skilled and dextrous fighter, they could be lethal...

    Of course, if they're only half as heavy as they could be, it would damage their effectiveness a bit. They could get going faster, but they still don't have enough effective mass to be fully effective.

    He looks them over seriously, and will turn Kirin's hands if she lets him, looking very appraising, "I can teach you how to be an effective fighter. If we're going to do that though, our first objective is to teach you how to properly use you claws. You can't always have a weapon on hand, after all."

"Now, I've heard that often, only the edge of the axe was made of steel. Usually the rest was iron, but I think we could put something exotic there."

    It quickly becomes obvious that Kirin took a few lessons a couple years ago, before she was made super-light, and that she's become rusty since then. She knows the basics, but not much beyond that.

    However, she's fast. Not having as much mass as she should (or something) and having a well-honed body means that she can move very fast, indeed... she could definitely move faster with training, though.

    "Mithral is a very lightweight metal, about half the weight of steel. Basically, it's magical silver, in terms of appearance and effect. The crystal is odd; it's got a sort of resonance to it. it's very strong, but brittle, so it probably wouldn't stand up to really excessive use; I think it'd be better as a dagger or another light weapon than something long. Helliron though? I honestly don't know. The stock I have was a wedding gift from Terrowin, and I haven't gotten around to asking him it's properties."

    [Courtyard]

    Harnel has fought fast moving enemies before, and staying entirely on the defensive allows him to block whatever Kirin throws at him. For the most part, he's occupying himself by recording where Kirin strikes for.

    Wenomir nods and rubs his chin.
    "Hm. Not sure if mithral will work. An axe hilt can't be too light, or it won't have enough force behind it. Helliron might work. If only for the delicious irony when I use it on Terrowin's fellow cultists," Wenomir says. They still have a score to settle with the Cult of Dalachrech. "Maybe we could try to find out its properties on our own."

    Mainly the face. A bit at the kidneys or other things that you pick up in simple classes. She sometimes specifically swipes at the hands, something that might be useful in disarming the enemy. Not really dangerous against Harnel's scales, though.

    A sunny day Cessie have decided to take a walk outside the keeps walls, an earth elemental have put down her two children at a smooth spot of land where one can keep an eye on them. The sorceress herself is sitting on a chair she have placed on the ground and is reading a book about algorithms.

    As she is slightly distracted by her book, she let's the elemental help her keep an eye on the twins so they don't crawl away somewhere. Right now the two seem to be enjoying themselves however as they are busy trying to chew on the blanket Cessie have put out underneath them.
