    Default Pirates of the Aether III: Epoch of Epics

    The Lady's Gambit

    The ship hovers, heavily damaged, over the island. While the surface was buzzing with activity over the night, it now lies quiet. Anjou's cruiser, The Inevitable, floats nearby, it's blue banners flapping merrily in the light breeze.

    Standing with the rising sun behind her, Anjou looks perplexed. She takes a moments to think about what she just heard. She raises a finger to speak again, but quickly puts it back down. "I assure you I mean you or your captain no harm. I've been under a lot of stress lately, and I fear for the safety of your crew. I consulted the Eidolon, and I received an ill omen..."

    Stoneforge marches onto the deck. "I heard someone was suggestin' that we salvage what we ken from the ships down below. I put togetha a couple o' dingies to git ya down there, if anyone want ta volunteer."

    "Master Stoneforge, good man, that's exactly what I was looking for." Bellamy takes the list with a smile and looks over it, ignoring the holier-than-thou Anjou. It was probably unfair of him to judge the warrior like this but something about goody two shoes types always bugged him. Someone else could worry about omens and dodgy dreams. Bellamy had some scrounging to do and that meant killing the undead.

    "I think I'll fly myself rather than take your dingy though, if you don't mind. I remember the first time I met you and you nearly dropped one of your experiments on my head."

    Aimari, having caught wind that the captain wished to speak to her again, makes her way up from her cabin back to the deck, taking a moment to look down at the island still crawling with undead. Her anger rises ever so slightly, eager to be unleashed onto the pale dead flesh of the wights once again. But she does nothing, instead moving back away from the edge of the ship to head to the captain's quarters. On her way, Aimari gives the strangers' ship a somewhat annoyed look, clearly not fond of its presence.

    Walking past one of the strangers speaking to someone of the crew, Aimari finds her way to Kieran's quarters before knocking on it briefly, standing silently in front of the door.

    Aimari enters silently, closing the door behind her before turning back to Kieran.

    "I am doing well," she says, listening silently again when he speaks of negotiating with meldshapers. She isn't especially interested - negotiations weren't really in the area of things that fit her abilities, unless they turned sour and ended up as violent confrontations. As he asks her about going back to the docks, Aimari nods. "It would be pleasing," she replies, no hint of joy in her voice despite her words.

    Kieran has a strange expression on his face.

    'Aye, I can always rely on you Aimari'.

    He rises.

    'Ye ken, ye're nae so much older than me little girl would be. An' yet so often have ye saved me life or me ship. Like las' night'.

    'I ken so little about ye...yet after all we've been through, I'd trust ye with me life in a heartbeat. Dinnae ye think that's strange?'


    Kieran shakes his head for a moment.

    'Sorry...nae mesein today. Didnae sleep too well maybes'.

    He offers his hand.

    'Thank ye fer savin' me life again, Aimari'.

    Kieran straightens himself.

    'This willnae do, will it?'

    Then a thought occurs to him.

    I wonder if any of the folks we rescued last night would be any use fer raidin' the docks. Fer sure, some o' them may want revenge. 'Tis curious how it moves some people...

    With a knock on the captain's door Bellamy arrives. Barely waiting for permission to enter he pops his head in the small cabin and beams at the pair, "Oh sorry, captain. I thought you were alone. I was just going to let you know the plan for the raid. Master Stoneforge is preparing some dingies and has given me a list of what he needs. All we need is volunteers to mount the expedition. I thought that you might like to make the announcement. It'd be good for the crew to see their captain. I'll go, of course, as it's my plan."

    Aimari isn't sure how to respond to Kieran's words about her youth - she's always known of her talents, of the burning power within her soul. The thought of the captain having a daughter almost her age isn't unusual; she'd heard him speak of his past enough to know that he was a father. In the past, this had intrigued her, but the lack of active rage that he showed soon led to a ceasing of her observations - he lacked the instinctive understanding of the truth that had allowed her to grow into her power, that would allow an outsider to tap into the original source of all power. At his question about the unusual nature of his trust, Aimari shrugs.

    "You know I can be trusted to keep my oath, and you know that I will not miss an opportunity to unleash my hate on our foes. That this conflict has recently become personal is...of little relevance. But I have yet more reason to continue this conflict. Whether unusual or not, your trust is not ill-placed," the mage says. As the man offers his hand, she takes it, knowing the gesture but unsure if it was the usual method of repayment for saving a life.

    "I do not know what one would consider a suitable response in this place," Aimari replies, as Kieran himself seems to come to the same thought as she. At the knock on the door, she turns towards it, nodding to the small head that comes into view as it opens. "I volunteer," she says as the small man mentions finding people for the expedition.

    Before Bellamy enters, Kieran smiles at Aimari.

    'Aye, I ken'.

    He turns as Bellamy enters.

    'Aye, good work Master Bellamy. I've been thinking, perhaps there are some amongst those we rescued last night that would welcome a chance tae have their revenge on the beasties'.

    'An' I wonder if there are any amongst the 'shapers that would join with us in our endeavour - it's somethin' tae consider'.


    Kieran motions to the door.

    'Let's get to it - Erin should have the list o' the things that we need shortly'.

    Kieran walks out onto the deck. Noticing Erin and the Anjou, he calls out to the latter.

    'M'Lady, seek ye out me?'

    "It was only tha' one time, lad... I think," mumbles Stoneforge. He gives a hearty laugh and a big grin.

    Anjou does a curtsy. "I am pleased to see you again. I am afraid I spied an ill omen for your journey ahead. The ground is crawling with evil and chaos. It's almost palpable," she says. "I pray you heed my warning. I know you have no reason to trust me, but I speak the truth. I swear by the Eidolon..."

    One of refugees from the island places his hand on Anjou's armored shoulder, interrupting her. "Excuse me, miss, but we have a good idea on what to do. There's an aerodome on the south end of the island. One of my buddy's checked it out with a spyglass when the sun came up. It looks like one opened it up to let out the ships out. That might mean those blasted critters never got inside. There's bound to be some parts you can scavenge."

    Anjou gingerly remove the man's hand with her index finger and thumb. "T-that may be the case, but you may not like what you find down there."

    Anjou looks sheepish. "I can not send any of my men down there to die..." She takes a few steps to the side of the ship. Looking at the sun, she adds "I will aid you in your salvage mission, if that will make things go more quickly. If we're lucky, the dome may have kept out the undead."

    "Let's hop to it, then!"
    Stoneforge ushers the crew to the skiffs. "How about the cap'n and his trusted lieutenan's take this one... for purposes." The first one is in pretty good shape. Obviously the good parts were invested in it.

    Anjou eyes the other small boat. It's made of rotten wood, rusted nails, and halfhearted prayers. "I guess I'll get into this... excellent vessel." She sight, muttering, "The Eidolon tests me this dawn." You are sure she sits squarely on a loose nail in the poorly constructed death trap, but she barely flinches.

    Everyone shuffles into their respective ships. Master Stoneforge gives a swift, sloppy salute as the smaller craft are lowered off the side of The Lady's Gambit. The winds is light and the sky is clear. The ships glide until the engines start with a rumble. The sun reflects off the aerodome's dome as you make your approach. It is comprised of large, sliding segments that fold away to let ships in. Arranged around the dome are smaller landing pads.

    The peace is broken as a large bolt flies past Kieran's head. "Constructs!" screams Barry.

    "But why would they be on? There ain't anything to shoot at?!" Jerry looks like he's about to wet himself.

    Positioned around are anti-air constructs. Resembling overgrown arbalesters, theses are usually used to fend off pirates and leviathans. They flings bolts at The Cruel Hand of Fate and the Marshmallow.

    Erin peers over the side of the ship, looking for the constructs with his sharpened senses. As they begin the attack, he grasps at the sword on his back for a moment, and then calls out to the others.

    "Keep the boat in the sky, we'll need a way back. Let's see if I can't give them a target."

    With that, Erin stands up and leaps out of the craft, tucking his wings into his sides until he'll need them to catch his fall. As he does so, he draws his sword, ready for the inevitable combat ahead.

    The Aerodome

    You manage to steer the ships onto a small docking pad. The Marshallow shudders and shakes up the crew. The two shipmates who followed you to the surface complain loudly. "ARGH! Why, Marshallow?! You're not soft at all! What have you forsaken us?"

    The crew of The Cruel Hand of Fate, have a soft landing. The rotten wood of the wretched hull crumbles to protect your bodies from the landing. After touching down, it immediately collapse. Anjou sits, bewildered, amongst the debris. The guard golems stop shooting at the ships now that they have been "shot down."

    Before you is a passenger door into the the aerodome. It appears to be closed.

    Bellamy and Bruce land near the broken Marshmallow. Despite his size the giant bat lands gracefully with hardly a sound. "Everyone alright in there?" he calls out as he slips out of the harness and slides to the ground.

    "We'll need to disable those constructs before we take off, unless they only target people coming in."
    Current status: Back to normal. If you can call this normal.

    I now cycle 22 miles a day. If I stop posting it probably means that someone ran me off the road. Watch out for cyclists. We're squishy.

    Kieran takes a quick look around.

    'Alright, report in? Any casualties?'

    Looks like the Marshmallow bought it...that's going tae make things difficult...

    "Looks like nothing more than heavy bruising Captain."

    Erin counted himself lucky to not be one of the members of the fallen ship.

    Anjou looks a little shaken up, but she quickly regains her composure. "I'm fine. If any of your are injured, I can attend to you.

    The deckhands complain loudly. Anjou gives them a cursory glance and says "Your wounds are only superficial. Now, what do we do about this door?"
