    Job Details:
    How many players can join in a topic?: 2-5 players may sign up per topic, but you may not have multiples of your own characters in the same topic. There is no limit on sign-ups, meaning everyone will have a chance to do the event. You may only do the event job once per character.

    How much do I need to type?: As it's a job-based event there is a set word count based on the highest ranked player! Luckily these are much lower than would normally be needed for the exp being rewarded!

    D: 500 words per player.
    C: 1000 words per player.
    B: 2000 words per player.
    A: 3000 words per player.
    S+: 4000 words per player.

    Where: Anywhere in Earthland!

    Synopsis of Event/What's going on: Throughout Earthland strange magical portals have been appearing, these portals give off a cold sensation and contain colourations of red, green, and icy blue; tones representative of the holiday everyone has come to know and love, Christmas. Something strange is occurring within Santa Claus’ domain and the normally happy and kind population of the realm have transformed into creatures of evil and started to invade Earthland believing they are the cause of the problem. The Magic Council has initiated a state of emergency continent-wide and is asking for the help of mages to find out the cause of this invasion and stop it, they would prefer all mages participating to approach the winter invaders with a talk-first approach though if violence is necessary; use it.

    *Any mage who came at the behest of the Council will simply be fighting until the monster's boss has been slain. Dark Mages have been offered an alternative route with completely separate enemies (since you wouldn’t want to directly aid the Magic Council); they can instead take these opportune moments of chaos to aid the monsters in destroying the towns whilst avoiding the Rune Knight’s law-abiding grasp!


    Light Guild: Monsters/Enemies: (All enemies must be rolled for, including the boss. Whether you decide to destroy the threat or help them back through the portals is up to the individual team. At least one of every enemy must be dealt with before you can turn in. You may add in more enemies without rolling if you so wish.)

    Weak;
    x3 - 5 Santa's Helpers:  The normal three foot happy and giggly elven helpers are no longer how you imagine them to be; they are dressed in a way that would make you feel like you were looking at a negative photo of them. Armed with candy cane swords and frost covered snowballs, these people, though extremely cute, are not to be underestimated as they deal 25% rank damage if they hit you. They require 10 hits to take down.

    Normal;
    x2 - 3 Polar Bears: These white furry bears when reared on their hind legs easily reach nine feet, though naturally tame creatures, the chaos and confusion has driven them into a rage-induced frenzy. Bites and scratches deal user rank damage. These require 15 hits to take down.

    Strong;
    x1 – 2 Christmas Trees: These large fir trees stand fifteen feet tall and are covered in decorations like tinsel and baubles with presents underneath. The baubles can be launched from the tree, akin to a pistol, which deal 50% rank damage when hit by them, the tinsel is able to completely immobilise an individual for a single round if captured within its snare. The real threat of these beautiful looking trees however is the presents underneath as you never know exactly what you are going to get. These can range from full rank damage, debuffs (max allowed for passive of char rank), AoE damage, elemental damage, a single round of immobilisation, or damage over time to 2.5x the characters rank. They do however take 25% more damage from fire so longs they are not covered in snow or frost. These trees take 25 hits to take down If confronting one of these monsters, you’re required to roll a die from 1-6 which will determine what kind of dangerous presents lurk beneath the roots.
    — 1. User-Ranked AoE damage (to the whole team).
    — 2. One round of immobilisation.
    — 3. Full Spell-Rank Damage (just to you).
    — 4. Transformed into an animal (of your choice).
    — 5. Temporarily drained of all mana for two posts.
    — 6. All your clothes disappear.

    BOSS;
    Santa Claus:  If you haven’t realised by now, there can only be one coordinator of a grand-scale attack such as this one. You guessed it, it’s the man in red himself; Santa Claus. Why you may ask is a good question and one easily answered, he is sick and tired of all the darkness in the world and has decided the best way to prevent it is to end it. Santa, like the Christmas trees has an array of attacks, however, unlike the christmas trees some of them may be positive effects. (To find out if you get a good or a bad effect you roll a normal dice. Damage can either be made into healing for the team or is dealt as damage to Santa at the lowest member of the teams rank damage e.g. If rolling an even number like two, you’ll receive a positive effect and your team will be healed by the lowest member of the team’s rank damage (i.e. I’m B-Rank and the lowest rank member of my team, I roll an even so the team would heal by 80HP; the reverse is true for an odd number whereby instead of healing, you’d be damaged by the roll). Santa is accompanied by 1 of each type of enemy and he himself requires 35 hits to take down.

    Landing near the base of the mountain in Era, Leona dismounted her faithful griffin and dispelled it. She was the first to arrive on the scene. She was waiting for allied mages from Silver Wolf, Fairy Tail, and West Fiore Trading Company to arrive and help her deal with the latest threat to Earthland. Working with her today would be Yuvon Mu-Myu, Song Talea, Garnet, and Adalinda Ortinbras.

    She knew Yuvon and Song from her guild, but she did not know anything about the Fairy Tail mage named Garnet. She also knew very little about the mage from West Fiore Trading Company named Adalinda. Leona was sure to learn more about their abilities and magic today when they clashed with the invaders from another dimension.

    According to reports she had read, the invaders came through portals from another world and were terrorizing locations all over Earthland. The Magic Council itself had called upon Leona and the allied mages to travel to Era, discover the reason for the invasion, and stop it, preferably by peaceful means. That was a tall order for a single mage, but Leona had backup for this job.

    Wearing her green-and-gold outfit with backpack and Argent Gloves, Leona also carried her Nightshade Machete. She was looking to take an easier job after the adventure in Silent Glaciers, but when the Magic Council called, there was no putting them on hold. The blonde waited for her job partners and wondered what enemies she would be going up against this time.

    Ah, the cold season had fallen upon Earthland. In the late month of this blessed year, the merry aura increased by tenfold, and many stories were told. Yes, there was something traditional about this month - yes, indeed, the month of a holiday that many Fiorian civilians celebrated when the snow began falling. Despite the lack of too much snow for the moment, it was still the more reasonable to mark another annual celebration. Yuvon, on the other hand, was content in just knowing about the celebration instead of celebrating it himself, since his mission of knowledge was laid ahead of him. So much to learn, my benevolent friend…

    It also sparked memories. Snow, cold air, dark sky… exactly like the time when he first put his footsteps in the guild areas. Could you imagine just how long ago that was? That sentence echoed in his head as he was warming himself up with a cup of hot cocoa and a book down in the library. While Leona was out for a mission at the Silent Glaciers, he watched over the corridors and guild territories with a tentacle casually floating around.

    In the meantime, this book caught his interest more and more. It was about celestial bodies and the physics working behind them… he planned to widen his arsenal of spells by utilizing space-time manipulation. According to this text, the introduction to black holes followed:

    “It is classified by several archmages that a black hole is an object whose actual radius is smaller than its bound radius. This term describes a radius where an object’s attractive force is so strong that no other object is able to escape it - not even the object known as light. A certain theory constructed by Merlin points to the real explanation of how objects of masses affect the world around us - by causing bending change in the space with its weight, one can imagine a pool ball laying on a latex carpet. When the ball is laying on it, the ball seeks further down due to its mass, until it has created a sort of crater - this effect explains the bending of spacetime around us according to Merlin’s belief.”

    “It also points to how other objects are affected by what is commonly known as gravity. If the pool ball created such a deep crater, then close-located objects such as a smaller ball will roll down to the crater and hit the pool ball. This effect can explain how the pool ball’s gravity attracts the smaller object towards its core. This depends on the pool ball’s mass in the end - the bigger the mass, the deeper the hole and the greater the force of gravity it has.”


    “With this in mind, one can imagine the existence of an object so heavy and concentrated, that its crater lets nothing escape it. We know that a smaller ball could roll up from the crater with other forces’ help - for instance a helping finger to pick the ball up again. However, if the crater is exactly 90 degrees deep, then the smaller ball will aid exactly zero, and it will find itself trapped forever in the gravity of the pool ball. This is what is commonly accepted to be the description of a black hole that lets nothing escape its grasp the moment you enter its bending radius. At that point, it’s simply too late.”


    Oh, what was that? A message was sent to the Librarian in form of a letter given to him by a nearby tentacle. It was from the Magic Council, and it warned of hostile activities with magical circles appearing and spawning havoc-creating beings from another world. Yuvon was no longer in his chair reading the book - he had simply teleported away, on his way to Leona.

    He had a hunch, because as the Guildmaster, she must’ve gotten the message too. In the middle of her already existing mission at Silent Glaciers? She most likely needed a helping hand. Popping out of a wormhole in the mountain of Era, he saw Leona right next to him. Not many words were needed from him at this point.

    “Magic Council sent me a call. I assume yours truly should aid you in exterminating this threat, milady?”

    Adalinda




    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    Adalinda wasn't sure entirely what to make out of the information she had been given about this whole ordeal that was happening around Earthland, really. Just that it wasn't too great. Her children had been born not too long ago, and already all hell was breaking loose in the world again? Of course she would have to deal with this, being a mage and all. She wasn't one for holiday season, barely even birthdays, but she knew the significance for others, and tried her hardest to not rain on their parades over it, even if they were being rather over the top.

    She takes a deep breath as she crumpled up the paper and gave Yuudai a quick kiss before she had stormed out of the house and transformed herself to a rather large metallic looking dragon. Her paper she had been given told her she had a team, already created by the Magic Council, to go meet up with in Era. The only bit that peeved her, was the fact that the Magic Council didn't make it sound like it was all that voluntary to go out and take care of this issue of random portals with invaders... again. Guess since she did it a few months ago, they thought she'd do it again. But  She let up a growl and takes to the skies after a little purple cat had climbed onto her back. Her powerful wings bending the trees as she launched herself up into the air, soaring free among the clouds.

    The dragon closes her eyes as she enjoys feeling the air rushing past her head with how fast she was going, leaving Tolgalen behind her at a rather fast pace. One of her most favorite parts about being able to become a full dragon at will. 'You're welcome, child...' The male dragon inside of her head grumbles at her. A throaty chuckle comes from Adalinda as she rolls her eyes. 'Thank you, Veles.' She snorts at him, of course she'd give credit where it's due. She wouldn't of been able to do this before otherwise. It didn't take her long to fly over into Fiore and straight to Era, in which she landed outside of the city to transform back into her normal human self. She had put her hands behind her head as Tamaria walked beside her as her short neko self, wanting to help out more and not be too much of a burden. "Here, just keep the sword. You use it more than I do anyways." She says to the cat as she hands over her dragon-like sword. Tamaria grins to her and hugs the sword to herself. "Thank you Ada!" She beamed happily.

    She closes her eyes for a minute, trying to pinpoint where her comrades were. She felt some magical presences and smirks to herself. She was pretty sure the two magics she sensed were part of the team. She and Tamaria walked up casually towards them in their white, West Fiore Trading Company uniforms. Adalinda's was a pantsuit, while Tammy's was a skirt suit to make herself look older. Both of them sported their companies pins on the collar of their uniforms for all to see. When the two arrived at where another pair were, Adalinda grinned to herself and clears her throat and hoped she sounded professional enough with the words that followed. "Hello. I'm Adalinda Ortinbras, of West Fiore Trading Company. And this here is my exceed companion, Tamaria. We're both from the trading company together." She looks between the two before she raised an eyebrow. "I'm assuming you both are here as well to figure out what's going on here fully, right?" Already her ears were twitching as she was trying to pick up the noises she was hearing. She also didn't want to be snuck up on, so she was already on alert for something to come up from basically any which direction.

    Music: It's just a Crab Rave, bro

    It was one of those days, when Garnet just wanted to stay indoors with a nice cup of hot cocoa. And that was precisely what he was doing. He had a cup of the aforementioned hot cocoa, surfing the web on his phone as he laid under his blanket. As per usual. He was looking for some clues on his brother's whereabouts, but he couldn't find anything. It felt vexing. Though on the other hand it could mean that Crystal was safe and sound back home in Inkopolis and that Garnet should just worry about himself. But he just had that weird feeling that he couldn't shake off. Somebody else besides himself fell victim to whatever had happened that put him in this world. A strange world of magic and wonder. Garnet was glad that he at least had a nice place to stay. He very much enjoyed being part of Fairy Tail. Who knew? Maybe one day he would have a hard time parting with the people whom he had met.

    Garnet swiped through a few more articles, until he came upon a rather interesting one. The headline said: 'Strange subtance found, disappeared the next day'. It definitely sounded promising. The ink that Inklings produced always disppeared after a certain amount of time, as some stuff in the air basically ate it away, so that made it perfect for the Splat Battles. He opened the article. It said that in the capital Crocus a strange, yellowy substance has appeared around sunset the last day. According to the article, it covered a large section of a side of a building and good chunk of a street, but the culprit is unknown. Then when they wanted to clean up the substance in the early morning the following day, it had mysteriously vanished. Garnet did his best to zoom in as much as he could on the suspected ink, but he couldn't say for sure. But what he could say, was that it definitely looked like something worth following the next time he saw something similar. The Inkling bookmarked the page as he heard a knock on his room's door.

    He couldn't exactly yell the whoever was behind the door to come in, so he reluctantly got from under his blanket and walked to the door. Garnet opened the door, ready to invite whoever was there, but there was nobody. The Inkling peeked from around the doorframe, but he didn't see anybody. He was about to close the door, when he noticed something on the floor out of the corner of his eye. There was something on the floor. Garnet bent down and picked it up - a piece of paper. It seemed that it was put there with a purpose. With a shrug he closed the door. The Inkling quickly skimmed through the paper. It was a message from the Magic Council, something about portals with invaders from another world. That gave him hope that he would one day see home again. He shook his head. That wasn't the time to be sentimental and Garnet kept on reading. He was supposed to go to city of Era and provide assistance. Supposedly there would be other mages involved aswell, which made him feel relieved. Garnet still hadn't completely grasped the concept of magic and forging his weapons on the fly, but he knew that he would get it down, eventually. That being said, he needed to head out. He wasn't going to dishonour the Guild that gave him shelter in this wide, unknown world.

    Shortly after, Garnet was sitting in a train en route to Era. He was dressed in a white, thick sweater made by one of the most popular designers of Inkopolis - Toni Kensa, that reached almost to his knees. He put on some black leggings and his black punk boots that he always wore. To top it off, he wore a black facemask with a squid pattern on it, to protect his nose and mouth from the cold. The train ride didn't take terribly long and before he knew it, Garnet was stepping off of the train in his destination. The question was to then find the rest of the group he was supposed to be with. The Inkling sighed and pulled out his phone. He would find them, sooner or later. Thankfully, it seemed that the former was the truth, as he come upon a rather interesting group of individuals. Three women and one man. He didn't recognize any of them, but he recognized the uniforms that two of the ladies wore. If he remembered correctly, they belonged to the Trading Company or however it was called, that was allied with his Guild, Fairy Tail. The Inkling would walk up to them as he put away his phone and wave at them, as a form of greeting.

    This winter wasn't quite as lonely as her first one away from Songs home city. Back then the only thing she had was herself and a search for something outside of the little box she had once known. The adults in charge of the orphanage were the closest thing to parents the girl could recall experiencing. They did their best to feed them, even to skipping meals themselves. They would reboil bones and things for soup until nothing was left, find way to make good even donations as poor as vegetables already partially deteriorating. Even if they were too protective, it had been out of love and care. Her brother had been the same too, though experiencing the outside world had helped him ease up. Back then part of her had wished to see everyone again, before it had set in that it would be unlikely to see any of them ever again. But this year she had a guild, and her brother back. Christmas as a holiday wasn't something she grew up with, but the foods and gift giving was something that got her interest. In this world outside the city nobody seemed to care about her ability to create luxury quality silk, she was free to use it to create things and exist without negative consequences. There were not a large number of unspoken laws that kept everyone in their pre made roles in life. This was a freedom the youth thrived on. This is why, when a state of emergency was declared? She had no issue signing up to help. This was how she ended up traveling so far to do her part in whatever this chaos was.

    Talk first, try to do things peacefully, use your brain. This was something she liked about the job, even if it was a state of emergency. The counsel gave the option to do it peacefully. She could have the chance to try to solve things differently. How would her guild leader want to handle things? It was something the spider could ask soon. The desert built arachnid child had her red shirt on and a stuffed back on her back, just in case unforeseen weather popped up. While not being able to see the blond adult, the Small Talea could feel where which one Leona was from the unique magic of the person, as well as the scent they gave off. She started to wave, giving a gleeful smile. "Hi Leona! Hi strangers! I'm Song Talea! Everyone here is for the emergency thing, right? I hope we can help solve it. Killing enemies a lot easier for me than talking things out, but I'll try to help." This made her youth very apparent. An adult probably would have been less likely to be quite so blunt, she herself had lived most of her life speaking very differently. Most of her life had involved her being unable to share large important things to her most important details. Ever since gaining freedom over her person, she still had not yet learned to ease up on the blunt honesty. At the least she was friendly, even if her hyperactive hand waving and bounce in her eight legs were not so long after saying that killing was easier for her than trying to change people's minds.

    Who were the other three people? She wasn't sure. She had seen squids, but not squid people. She had read about dragons, but had never met one. Safe to say, she lacked a lot of experience. Who was everyone? Well, who knows. What were the names of the people she was supposed to join to deal with this? Honestly she only remembered Leona and that they were not all from her guild. Oh! Was she supposed to say her guild? Would they feel as clueless as her? There was one good way to solve any confusion in her own mind, so she just did it. "I'm from Silver Wolf." Arms went down after waving, but only half way. The girl wanted to be ready for anything that she might smell or feel coming. One of the things she could recall in training was the need to surprise, to not be caught by surprise yourself.

    It seemed like the group was all here, so it was time to get going. The crisis was not going to resolve itself. Leona had not worked with many of these individuals before. She had worked with Yuvon and Song, but that was a long time ago. She had never worked with Adalinda or the Garnet fellow before today.

    She was also slightly distressed at Song's cheerful declaration that killing enemies was a lot easier for her than it was to verbally negotiate with them. That sounded a bit too much like Leona herself. She always found it easier to let her weapons do the talking... that tendency was something that she had been trying to change with mixed success. She managed to talk down the goblin and the Vulcan in Clover Town but had just killed the Red Sand Bandits in Desierto because talking them down would be a pointless waste of time. After their leader was taken and hanged in the Tri-Council city, they saw no point in negotiation and fought to the end.

    The worst part was that Leona had forced their backs to the wall. Then she thought about it a little more. Who was she kidding? They were outlaws who wanted to kill, torture, and live a life of consequence-free banditry. They saw that their lifestyle was catching up to them and tried to delay the day of reckoning by casting their lot with slavers instead of simply giving up their bandit ways and running somewhere far beyond Earthland.

    Leona felt conflicted. Was there another way to resolve the Desierto issues and help the Blue Sky Clan in a way that did not involve killing? Probably not. The bandits were men with prices on their heads and knew it. They would do anything to avoid the hangman.

    Leona shook off the lingering feelings of conflict and focused on the present. The five mages had a job to do. She began to talk with the mages.

    "We're here to stop a continent-wide invasion of Earthland. The Magic Council wants us to find out why the invasion's taking place and stop it." Leona said to everyone.

    "The Council would like a non-violent resolution to the problem. They'd like us to talk the leader out of their actions." Leona continued. She swore that she could hear Ghost Kasim laughing at her.

    "You who bathes in the blood of bandits, talking to others about peace?" He asked mockingly.
    Leona ignored it and continued speaking.

    "If we can't talk them down... then we force them out. The only restriction is to keep property damage to a minimum. Since there's forest everywhere, we'll have to be careful with Fire Magic." Leona counseled. Again Ghost Kasim laughed at her.

    "Why bother with words? Use a weapon instead. It suits you." He snarked. Leona again ignored him and tried to rally the other mages. She would cut to the chase.

    "All right then. We need to find a portal because that's how they're getting here. Once we find the portal, we try to talk them down and if they offer violence, we shut them down." Leona outlined a rudimentary plan of action to her teammates. She was not much of a leader and it was starting to show. She had told them things that they already knew and did not have much of a plan for how to stop the attack on Era. In the future she needed to find and take some leadership courses because might did not make right. She might have been the second most powerful mage in Silver Wolf, but power alone did not make for a leader.

    Leaders knew how to work with people from different backgrounds and with different personalities. Leaders knew how to unite them and get them to work towards a common goal. Leona was not one of those leaders. She was a good fighter and devoted to the job, but she was not a leader of mages. Becoming Guild Master of Silver Wolf was the very first time she had ever had the opportunity to lead people.

    The blonde would have to find any dormant leadership qualities if she wanted to get her teammates through this job. She would have to step up and take charge. However, that would be easier said than done. Adalinda and Garnet came from guilds with stronger and more experienced leaders. Who was to say that they would accept her taking charge?

    "You will lead them only to their deaths." Ghost Kasim snarked. Leona sighed. This was going to be a tough job.

    "We're gonna need to think about how to find a portal. They just won't leave one out in the open because that'd be too easy to find and shut down. Where would you put a portal to another dimension?" Leona asked the group in order to glean ideas from them and get them involved in the mission. Using their intellects would be a good idea. This would be a job that would require intellect as well as muscle.

    Re: A Harrowing Holiday

    Post by Yuvon on 26th December 2018, 7:21 am

    The team was quickly gathering around the small area in the forest next to Era. After Yuvon made his presence known from his own, slimy portal, a pair of West Fiore Trading Company members arrived and greeted themselves to them. “A pleasure to meet your acquaintances. I’m Yuvon Mu-Myu, a Silver Wolf wizard,” he greeted back to them. Per his own experience, they were allied with the WFTC, so that stood to reason with their allies in this crisis being from the same guild. This particular circumstance also strengthened the possibility of capable wizards from another guild to aid them in their cause. He would have to trust his hunch and deductive thinking to prove himself right, a claim that only time would tell.

    The next arrival was that of a small person, stating the obvious as his height was the first thing that caught Yuvon’s eyes. Waving back, the librarian considered finding out how that could be - in this day and age, dwarfness was a rather rare occurrence among humans in Fiore. Despite realizing how offensive it could be to assume all kinds of things from his allies, Yuvon had a lust for knowing exactly what, why, where and how. He just couldn’t help it, he needed to know about this interesting, little person. Time, as always, would likely help him finding out the new figure’s origin and physiology.

    Next up was Song Talea, a guildmate of his and Leona’s. With her cheerful greeting, she was more than ready to help stopping this country-wide terror, even with her rather violent comment that many could relate to. The feeling of violence and offensive action being the easiest to choose was not something new to the librarian - this wasn’t based on awareness for one’s choices in life, but more like a trigger and response that came first to mind, even if there truly was a calmer solution to a case or problem. Perhaps, it was simply natural to people of high power to resolve to that power in times of need. They were all renowned wizards in each their unique, baffling brilliance, and they all held their deep tales and moments of aiding and helping with what they excelled at.

    Today, they were going to put that psychology to the test. The Magic Council had stated very clearly that a peaceful solution with less collateral damage was preferred given the exact time and holiday. It was still Christmas, and they didn’t want the entire nation to pee in their pants on Christmas. This holiday was still to be celebrated, even if terror knocked on the door. However, to negotiate with them, they would have to find them first - and given their little care in discretion, finding terrorists in the midst of their actions was easy. They did use magical portals located at strategically preferable positions, so that their terrors could reach the population with little warning. It was assumed by the librarian that a portal would likely be near a gate to the city. Because of the vegetation surrounding Era, it was difficult to assume that just any tree could hold the portal.

    Swiping a hand across the air, Yuvon manifested a 3D map over Era and its surrounding shrubbery in the blink of an eye. With a further insight in the structure of the location, he concluded: “Since they’re bent on entering the city, their portal must be somewhere near the only gate into Era… here, around the main road, train station and trees. They’d likely prevent people from escaping so quickly, so the portal might be near us, already.” He awaited their responses and suggestions to the case, given that these portals had the chance of functioning differently than the types of portals that Yuvon was used to.

    According to a report, some assaulters used candy canes as weapons… but that didn’t help Yuvon, since he was more affiliated with magical sensory rather than the physical - well, except for the tracking of human bodies thanks to that stupid heritage of his.

    Adalinda




    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    Adalinda wasn't sure of this new person who appeared after her. She still at least smile and be polite to them by giving them a nod. When another person showed up, a spider person at that, Adalinda had given a curious look before she nodded to her. She shouldn't of been too surprised about another species, despite her working with other species already, like a shrimp dragon, and lamia. Tamaria fluttered up on Ada's shoulder, despite being in her neko form, and waved to the two of them. Adalinda didn't seem to mind the weight of the cat girl on her shoulder, not even when she shifted to cross her ankles while she sat there. "Hello Song! I'm Tamaria, and this is Adalinda, we're both from West Fiore Trading Company. And..." She put a hand to the side of her mouth to act like she was whispering to the other girl. "And if we're honest... Ada's the same way, all fists, no talk." She snorts as the dragon slayer rolled her eyes. "I am learning how to 'just talk' too you know..." She pouts a bit to her, but instantly looked to Leona with a smile again.

    She turns her head to fully pay attention to Leona as she begun to talk, but she also kept her ears out for danger as well still. At the comment of 'a non-violent resolution to the problem', the slayer takes a deep breath. Tamaria was giggling and glanced to Adalinda. Though she could give her companion some credit, she was actually getting better at talking to others... slightly. She crossed her arms over her chest as she watches the other mage, face twitching as this job would actually be rather hard to to for her... places usually did get damaged if she was the one to be involved. She could try to not do so though... As the other mage finished up, Adalinda couldn't help but smile to her and held up her thumb a bit. She felt like the guild master of the fellow guild wasn't too confident in herself, but she felt she did fine. "I volunteer myself to be a guard, or tanker, of sorts in case things go south and we have to result to violence. I am an Iron Dragon Slayer, and I do use my fists more than anything." She holds up a hand and clenches it into a fist as she grins slightly. "I'll try my best to help out wherever I can." She glances to the others, seeing if they had any other type of fighters among them.

    Tammy raised her hand. "I can attempt to talk if no one else can, but I can also fight along side Ada as well!" She says as she pats the hilt of her new sword. "I think if anyone has any healing spells, that would be useful as well... Unfortunately for us, Ada's weakness is taking all the damage she can, with no way to heal..." Ada makes a face to her Exceed, but she was right though. She was a charge into battle and think second later person. She glanced over to Song, and raised an eyebrow, wondering how this spider girl faired magic wise as well. She glanced over to the other mage as he created a map for them to all look at. Tammy had put a hand on her skirt and used her wings to hover above it and look at it from above them all while being out of their way.

    "I could take an areal view to see where it's coming from! I'm pretty good at being a scout." "You may have a sword at your disposal... but you're still defenseless, cat." Adalinda slightly grumbled as she looked to the map. "I didn't see any portals on my way over here leading to the gate... But... that's assuming it was already opened, and doesn't do an open then close type of deal... I heard that they do have a tree for the holidays set up in a park in Era though. If they're to show up around the holiday stuff." She points out as she bit her tongue lightly. Maybe having Tammy fly up quickly and scout ahead would be a decent way to find out where the portal was, or at least where it seemed to be wherever the mass of whatever is supposed to come out of them. She then tapped her chin before she looked up to Leona. "Did the Magic Council say anything else about the portals? Like if they specifically said that they showed up outside the areas only? Or could they possibly open within it? Could cause panic by showing up right where people are outside." She shrugs her shoulders, putting her two cents in on that bit before looking at the guy with the map again, then glancing to the other two for a brief moment.

    OOC: If Tamaria is used for her ability to fly to scout for the portal, I give permission for people to use her before my post to find it (just give me a heads up in dm/discord).

    After Garnet there was one more person to arrive at the scene. Or rather.. A spider person? And Garnet thought that he was weird enough. The spider lady seemed to be a rather gleeful individual. She admitted that she was better at killing than talking. While Garnet would like to say that he was about equal in both departments, he was very well aware that his current speech impediment posed quite the obstacle. Garnet did catch the name of the spider lady, as well as the name of the Guild that she belonged to - Silver Wolf. One of the two allies of Fairy Tail. The Inkling was glad that he would get to know people from outside of his own Guild. The cat lady also introduced herslef and the other lady and commented that Ada also preferred the violent routes. It was getting less and less likely that they would be talking their way out.

    As it seemed that everybody had gathered, one of the mages present started to explain the situation that they were in. Or rather, the world was in. The jolly invaders from another world. The mages were tasked with resolving this issue peacefully or force, if it came down to that. That was pretty much what Garnet knew already from the Council's message. Though he still patiently listened to what was being said and theb subsequently asked. The Inkling himself had no idea as to where the portals could appear. This whole magic and portals and wizardy stuff was still a concept that he was wrapping his head around. Of course, there were mentions of magic back home, but it was all serving as a metaphor. Now that it was very much real in this world, was still a bit baffling.

    Garnet did feel saddened that he could only offer common sense, instead of actual magical expertise. Thankfully for him, the other mages that were present had plenty of advice and ideas and strategies. The masked man manifested a map of the city of Era with a swipe of his hand. It looked pretty cool, something that Garnet could have used a few times in the past. The Inkling would step a bit closer to the map, taking in the layout. He was never in Era before, so this map would help him to better orientate within it. The masked man then suggested that the portal must have most likely appeared near the city's gates. Garnet was unfamiliar with how portals actually worked, so he wouldn't and couldn't question that line of thinking. The uniformed women, on the other hand, seemed to have observed a few things.

    Ads had volunteered as a guard if sorts, while Tamaria had volunteered for the talking, but also noting that she would not stray away from combat. There eas also a mention of healing magic, but that was beyond Garnet. He was afraid that at such rate he wouldn't be able to offer anything to the group. He still hadn't fully grasped his magic and he couldn't speak the language in which the people conversed in. Thus he couldn't properly do either sides of the task. Tamaria also offered that she could scout from an aerial point of view. An another thing that made Garnet feel that much worse about himself.

    However, Ada raised a few points, for which Garnet actually provide at least something for. He would take his squid shaped phone out and type out a message in now a familiar fashion. He didn't really know anybody from the gathered group, so he had to pick out one person to show the message to. The masked man. He had this certain smart and nerdy vibe to him. With the message typed out on the screen, the Inkling would come up to the masked man and show him his phone. Aerial view sounds like it would save us a lot of time. The portals could practically open anywhere, no? My Council message didn't specify a single spot. Garnet probably shouldn't assume things, but he had gotten into the bad habit of it as of late. It was most likely the lack of practical everyday knowledge of this world that he simply just didn't have.

    Post by Song Talea on 3rd January 2019, 3:01 pm

    Song smiled to Tamaria, giving a bit of a wave. The youth felt excited to meet new people, even if it was on a job that possible meant killing. "Hello Tamaria! It's nice to meet you." What she didn't expect was the whispering, but it caused more than a few a few giggles. She didn't know Tamaria yet. The girl wasn't even fully aware that she was talking to a cat. Still, this new person was fun so far, it made the situation feel a little less tense. It sounded like the big lady, named Ada? She had the same sort of issue. The girl didn't know Leona had the same issue since it wasn't outwardly spoken, she couldn't read facial expressions, and hadn't known the woman long enough to know that yet. So to the girl? Ada was the first adult she had heard of with the same issue. "I didn't know adults had that sort of problem too, I feel a lot better now. Were you born to kill too?" She wanted to try something peaceful, but if she thought like herself? There were no ideas. Leona didn't seem to have more than hers. Property damage?

    Right, that was something more likely to happen outside her home. Why was she surprised? This was an area with people around, not just a random patch of wilderness. The younger Talea decided against thinking any deeper on that. Instead she focused on talking strategy for figuring out what to do when facing them. "I have one healing spell? It was something I wanted to try to figure out how to after me and my brother both got hurt during the no light thing some months back. Uh, it might buy us time in talking if I set up some traps maybe? I have one trap that slows people down and another one that temporarily stuns them. That could buy us some more talking time? Or I could put spells on you so attacks hurt less Ada. Also, uh, what's a dragon slayer like?  You're the first one I've ever met, I think." She wanted to be useful in any way possible, but also be ready for anything. The youth lacked the experience to be able to predict what might happen in battle as accurate as some others might. She was as eager to try not killing, though not for selfless reasons.

    The desert spider still had fresh memories of the years of training. Running away didn't change the years of training with others that had powers so much like hers. In a village where your magic decided what your job would be, hers had been killing. The youth had been working to change though, this could be a good test on her efforts. When the topic of Tamaria being a cat came up. The idea of talking and cat just didn't really click to her as two things that could go together before that time. A genuine look of shock struck through her body. Songs blind eyes were wide and leg movements stiffened. This quickly gave way to excited movements in the legs though, expression changing back to normal. "You're a kitty Tamaria?! A kitty that can think and talk and fly and things? You're so amazing!" There were not too many instances where her blindness was obvious.

    If you ever asked her about color, an expression someone was making, to read something without touching it, all things that didn't actually ever come up in conversation. This was just one of those instances where it became more apparent she couldn't see the world. She could feel it, hear it, sometimes that felt like sight? But in the end, it really wasn't. Of course now that she met someone like the cat, she would be more aware when meeting other talking cats. There were just some things she needed experience, or touching someone to figure out. Others, like color, she would never understand. Though of course, the topic couldn't remain on one thing forever. Leona had brought up the portal, Yuvon suggested where it was most likely located, and then Ada brought up what sounded like the best solution. Well, it was probably the best solution? The youth gave a bit of a shrug. "It doesn't matter to me who flies up and looks for the portal, as long as someone flies up and looks."

    Post by Leona Jarnefeldt on 4th January 2019, 7:36 pm

    Leona listened to Yuvon, Ada, and the others and their counsel tended to agree on one point. Someone needed to scout the area by air and tell the other mages what was going on. The blonde fully agreed with that line of thinking. As a mage able to summon wind-based creatures, she was qualified to scout the area. In a situation dripping with irony, she was a wind magic user who was afraid of heights.

    But there was an easy solution to that particular problem. Leona did not have to go herself if she could send her summons to do the work for her. They could communicate with her telepathically and vice versa, eliminating the need to scout in person and run the risk of being knocked off her mount and falling to her death if the invaders had brought air cover with them. She could send her owl summon and have him escorted by her harpies.

    Leona raised a hand and called out the words.

    "PHARAOH SUMMON!" Leona called out. Ramses the owl appeared and flapped his wings above her head before landing on her right arm, making sure to land on the protective metal of the Argent Glove. Now it was time to call out the harpy sisters.

    "O FABLED HARPIES, O SISTERS THREE! LEND YOUR STRENGTH UNTO ME!" Leona recited the chant. They appeared at her feet and took wing in unison.

    "Oh, hey girl! We're not under attack already, are we?" Sylvia asked.

    "Like, I'm surprised that we're not. We're usually called when there's fighting." Daphne commented.

    "I'm glad that we don't have to fight just yet. Fighting all the time is pretty stressful." Sandy chimed in. Leona was inclined to agree with her. Everyone present would have to fight as soon as the portal was spotted.

    "I want you guys to escort Ramses around and help him spot a portal. Some enemies are using the portal to get into our world and terrorize people. Once you spot it, let me know immediately." Leona told the harpies and Ramses the owl. Ramses turned his head around and looked Leona in the eyes while his chest faced forward. That was more than a bit creepy, but it was what owls did.

    "It will be done!" Ramses said before he took flight. The harpy sister trio followed him into the sky and together the quartet began searching for signs of the portal. Searching by air would be a lot quicker than having to coordinate and keep up with five people searching the forest on foot. It was also low-risk... if her summons got killed by invaders they did not permanently die, unlike the mages with her. All Leona had to do was wait a little bit and call them out again and they were as good as new.

    "I'm sending my summons to search around from the sky. If anyone else has any summons or any other aerial surveillance, now's the time to use it." Leona suggested to the other mages. Adalinda had already brought out Tamaria, but it was not Leona's place to command someone else's summon or pet. She would remain in place until her summons spotted something of interest and relayed the information back to her.

    "Nothing yet." Ramses tersely reported via telepathy.

    "Same here." Sylvia chimed in.

    Leona did not like the sound of that. What if all the enemies had already gone through and the portal was left as a distraction? Leona hoped that was not the case and that there was still time to stop the attack before anyone got hurt.

    "Is there anything else that we can do to find the portal or any enemies that may have already gotten through?" Leona canvassed the group for more ideas. It pained her to lean so heavily on the group when she was supposed to be a Guild Master, an individual who planned out the course of her guild and made decisions for an entire group of people. She was supposed to be a thinker, but at the moment she had no good ideas to offer. Right now she could only ask for ideas from the others and act on them.

    Dealing with her intellectual shortcomings could wait because there was no time to mope. There was a job to be done. The Magic Council needed their help and they would do everything they could to complete the job. Leona's thoughts were interrupted by her summons suddenly talking to her. They had spotted activity!

    "I have spotted movement in a clearing not too far from your current position!" Ramses declared to her.

    "We see it too! Stay where you are! We'll come that way and guide you to it!" Sylvia added. Leona was ready for this moment.

    "I've found some activity, guys! Get ready!" Leona informed the other mages.

    "Get ready, Leona! They're heading your way!" Sylvia updated Leona.

    Whilst scouting the map laid in front of him, Ada did mention a point - it was just as likely that the invaders mentioned by the Magic Council could have put a portal inside the town rather than outside of it. They were located in the woods right outside the outskirts of Era, so if the enemies were as deceiving as needed, they could have tricked them all into thinking that they would be spawned into this world at this spot rather than somewhere else. It was an infamous thought that the enemy would outsmart them, though… Yuvon felt threatened by the possibility.

    A curious comment from Song was caught by his hearing - his oddly average sense of hearing, that was. She noticed the magic that the respectable lady Adalinda possessed and mentioned that it was her first time ever meeting a Dragon Slayer before. Now, Yuvon himself did hold knowledge of the Dragon Slayer Arcana that existed in this plane of existence, and it had always fascinated him how magic began to look more and more like an actual, constructed piece of artwork or tool. It had a specific design, and in this case, it also harbored a specific purpose - to imitate and surpass dragons. He would remember to lecture Song in a short session of info and trivia about Dragon Slayers later.

    Unless if she got all the knowledge she wanted from- no, no… Yuvon wanted to teach her. Just something! Knowledge was never satisfying!

    The plan was sufficiently explained as most from the group came up with the same point; somebody had to scout by air, since the higher element was preferred as a scouting post. Tamaria, Adalinda’s cute, little friend, was adept in flying by Yuvon’s own judgement and observation, and it didn’t take long before Leona sent out her parade of summons; an owl and three harpies. Whether if she noticed it or not, Yuvon undoubtedly memorized the magical signatures required to spawn these particularly feathery creatures; truth be told, it was the first time that he memorized a summoning spell. The closest thing to that which was in his memory already was the bow from the octopus massacre…

    His mask was always in place, so little adjustment was needed when he looked up at the flying warriors who soared out to get a spot on one such portal that was explained in their request. Sadly, if the portals didn’t emit magical signatures, then Yuvon had trouble finding one without a blood or flesh sample… yes, truly that wasn’t in his favor.

    But what felt like fate spinning the wheel a little faster, his Guildmaster warned them of activity. It must have been close as Yuvon readied up his hands. Bright magic particles covered them, warming up his arcane activity and readying him for any next action that was taken against him.

    He heard roars in the distance. It was dry, loud roars that came from bears. Were those really bears? They looked like none of the pictures of bears that Yuvon had read in his library. They were way larger and more ferocious in their looks than the ordinary, white-furred polar bears that he was familiar of. They came rushing through the shrubbery and tore down trees that weren’t already decorated in Christmas decorations akin to those trees that they accompanied. These weren’t capable of being negotiated with… that was a pain.

    He clenched his fist and released a black stone that came flying like a dart, cutting around in a prism-like fashion to push the trees back. Despite successfully pushing the trees back, the bears were infuriated. One of the presents from the trees also landed in front of Yuvon, and fearing the worst, he stretched out his hands to form a barrier. The next thing that happened was a big, pink cloud of smoke that covered him entirely…

    Adalinda




    The Iron Dragon Slayer


    The dragon slayer blinks a little at the spider girls question. Was she born to kill TOO? Slowly she shook her head. "N-no... I wasn't..." "Adalinda just likes to fight, it's her preference, more than a 'problem'. Only when she fights the wrong thing... is it a problem." Tamaria snickers to her. She nods a little to her when she hears about the healing spell, knowing she may need it, or not. The traps would be good too she thought. She was about to say something, when she was asked what a dragon slayer was like. That's right... some don't know... She then smirks some. "They're people who posses the power to slay a dragon. Some are taught by a dragon themselves. Others gain it though a lacrima, and some both. I was raised by one and have a lacrima, and I even have one in my head..." She sighs a bit. Veles was going to have a big head over this. 'Should tell her that I make you stronger than the average slayer too. Heheh...' He snorts to his host, but she softly shook her head before she clears her throat and smiles to the group again.

    It was Tamaria's turn to be caught off guard by the spider girls question of her being a cat. Then she realized the spider girl couldn't see. She should have realized sooner. Tammy giggled softly. "I'm an exceed, actually. Not just a cat." "But you look like one to everyone else." Adalinda points out. The two looked to the others for a moment before they noticed the silent guy typing something, on what she assumed was an iLac, and showed it to the guy who made the map. She raised an eyebrow before she heard Leona speaking again. She blinks at an owl was suddenly there. That wasn't something she was expecting, especially the harpies that she summoned forth. Adalinda couldn't deny that she was rather impressed with this. Tammy giggled as she holds up a thumb to Leona's comment about aerial surveillance. "Great! Now I can work better with you guys by not having to go too far." As to Leona's next question, Ada coughs slightly. "I can probably see about smelling out things that don't seem like they belong... maybe?" She shrugs her shoulders. She honestly wasn't sure as she didn't know what typically WAS from around here and what wasn't.

    As the guild master of the Silver Wolf guild said that there was activity and to get ready, Adalinda's mouth twisted into a grin. She was ready to fight. "Ada, remember, violence as a last resort! Okay? And even then, try to not harm the enemy in case it causes issues." The cat reminded her before fluttering up a bit, to see if she could spot the portal from there, herself. At the sounds of the bears, Adalinda was already working on making her way in front of everyone in the direction. Those roars didn't sound too friendly. "Company..." Adalinda simply said as she felt her blue eyes lock on the direction of the bears. She quickly moves her hands to slam them down into the ground to summon a couple iron snakes to go after the bears. Their spikes were retracted, so they wouldn't do much harm to the creatures though. She then clenches her hands and a couple of war fans were in her hands. These would hurt the bears though. 'What? Not just going to roar at these things?' 'Hell no! The city is right behind them! Minimal property damage, remember?' Adalinda hissed a bit as her skin suddenly turned to an iron grey and looked rather scaly now. Prepared for damage. "Unless you have some way to stop me now, I'm going in." She says before she quickly darts forward, letting her fans be behind her. She quickly had made her way to the bears. She didn't count how many there were, but there was a bunch. Was it a good idea to charge in on these things? Probably not as when she got close enough, another bear managed to sneak around her and smacked her a bit to the side.

    Adalinda growled a little as she let her glare gaze over the polar bears. No way was she letting some bear beat her up. She chuckles and winks as the bear that had smacked her, suddenly couldn't move. "Stay boy." She chortles as her snakes were yanking it's hind legs down to keep it in place. The distraction was enough for Adalinda to jump over and smack at another with her fans. They were all already mad from Yuvon's magic he had done, now she was just adding fuel to the fire. Maybe she could distract these things for a while, practice her magic on them to let the others get to the portal. "Leave the bears to me, unless you want to play with them too?" "Ada! You can't fight all these bears on your own! Stop being stupid!" Tammy cries out as she holds her own sword. The fire in it might be good to use on the trees, but she was scared she would be hurt by the trees, especially since they had these bobbles on them that flung out. No! This wasn't the time to get scared of fighting! She had to be strong, just like Adalinda. She quickly rushed down at one of the trees, lighting the scabbard on fire, and glares. Hopefully these trees could burn like a normal one! When she saw the box poof on the masked Silver Wolf mage, Tamaria instantly felt hesitant on going after the trees. Maybe Ada should go after it instead... Especially since she didn't know what that pink smoke did to him... Let Adalinda deal with whatever those presents do instead.

    It didn't seem that the message he had written was taken into consideration. Garnet gave a sad bubbly sigh as the spider lady Song agreed with the idea of aerial scouting. The lady of whom Garnet still didn't know the name of summoned a group of harpies along with something else and the Inkling took a few steps back in awe. Could he possibly do the same in this world? Three, quite vocal, harpies and an owl made an appearance. The lady instructed them in their upcoming task and the group took off into the sky. The Inkling felt incredibly useless, surrounded by the mages, all who had many different capabilities. Only Garnet had none.

    It only took a few moments before the summon lady warned the rest of the group about incoming danger. And soon enough Garnet could also hear it. And it didn't sound too pleasing. Rather sizable, white and furry beasts emerged and roared. Garnet couldn't say that he was familiar with them, but he was sure that he saw something similar to them before... Ah, of course. Mr. Grizz. That damn bear-shaped radio and the most shady contractor out there. But he paid quite well. This issue with festive invaders, however, was not a paid job, sadly. The white bears seemed to be quite furious and the group responded in accordance to that. The woman named Ada jumped into the fray. Her magic seemed to be metal-based, as she summoned metallic snakes and weapons. She then took care of one of the bears, telling the rest of the group to put their focus elsewhere. With a corner of his eye Garnet noticed the masked man get enveloped in a pink mist. The Inkling didn't want to know what was going to happen to him.

    Ada left a portion of the work for the rest of the team. Garnet just wasn't sure if he was going to be able to even do anything. Let alone do something meaningful for the team. The Inkling put away his phone and quickly scanned the area. There were the bears, the trees.. and a whole bunch of little elves? A snowball suddenly whizzed by Garnet's pointy ear as he backstepped in surprise. Maybe he could follow the trail of elves and see if the portal was on the other side of them. Yeah, that sounded like an idea that could help the group. It also seemed like something Garnet would be able to do.

    The Inkling would weave in between the hail of snowballs. One or two hit their marks and they hurt a bit because of the ice they were encased in, but he felt much worse pain before. He hid behind the trees and tried to manouver around the long stream of festive elves. They lost him, but some of them seemed to know that he was still there, somewhere, lurking about. Garnet wasn't the best at sneaking, but he had to do so a few times before. Though he usually did that in his squid form, but that was currently out of the question. The Inkling tried to stay as close to the elves as much as he could afford to, without them seeing him. There was really a surprising amount of elves who were making their way towards the rest of group of mages that Garnet was there with. He wasn't sure whether or not he was supposed to go back and give them a heads up, but the elves didn't look too threatening. Technically they were very much threatening to Garnet, but he reckoned that the other mages were far stronger than him. He didn't even know what he was going to do if he found the portal. The whole idea started to turn real sour real fast.

    It was interesting watching everyone work to get things done with their different skills. Her guild leaders bird friends were able to find the enemies location. When Tamaria and Ada spoke again though? Song gave a bit of a frown, pouting. "You could have just said no, don't act like I was born with a problem!" Of course any rational adult would know that this wasn't what either of them were trying to say. The spider was a child nearing puberty though, certainly not at the age where rationality was at its finest. Still, it was unlikely that this was exactly the finest of times to down talk a young girl and explain things in a way that she would better understand. As for the rest of the information? She was hoping to hear a bit different, she wasn't sure what, just... maybe something that wasn't in a book? "That... sounds exactly like what a few books say." She tried to hide her disappointment, but it was written on her facial expression. It was easier to control her voice, it was something she picked up in herself and others. With faces though? It felt a bit like a guessing game until she could get her hands on the person's face. At the least it seemed she did know what a slayer was, just had never met one. Meeting something or someone in person was different in person. She couldn't see things, but feel? Most definitely. A lot of the times it felt a bit like books were lacking in information that would help her identify in ways without going up and groping someone all over. She didn't mind doing that, but knew others seemed to mind for whatever reason.

    An exceed? She hadn't read about those before. "Ohhh..." But this of course was not a train of thought she could finish. Instead of exclaiming her curiosity to know more, there were elves, bears and... trees? The girl was stunned in shock for a moment, staring at the thing that was mobile christmas trees. What didn't make them less weird? That one tossed a gift that... wait, "Yuvon are you naked?!" A snowball hit her, but the girl hadn't quite noticed due to still being in somewhat of a surprised state. There's nothing like a blind child re confirming that someone was just stripped bare by a gift tossed by a pine tree. Then of course when her mind started working, it was to wonder how you try to talk and rationalize with bears or trees. The girl slapped herself in the face, trying to get herself back to the chaos at hand. "Breathe!"Another snowball, this time too close to the slap for her to notice it. That's right, when your world is always a blank canvas, most of what you have are a bunch of questions and a little information that helps you draw out what you think is going on. Now, what was happening? Yuvon was naked, pushed back some trees, and irritated large bears. A bear bit Ada, she was around the bears. More pushing them back maybe? Her traps would affect the enemies, but also anyone close enough to be effected. She could boost her own speed, but what could she do with it? Well... Where was the chance to talk? She didn't see it anywhere. Not in the snowballs flung at Garnet, nor the box tossed at Yuvon, or the bears going for Ada. So... Song gave into her instincts. She quickly made and wove together black spider silk. When it was completed, her hand begun to glow.

    Taking in a long deep breath before rushing towards who looked to need it the most. The desert arachne touched Garnet with the speed boosting spell before rushing off herself. If only she had a strength boosting spell? Something to figure out later. What she did next? For now she rushed towards the fray, weaving white threads together until a spell was created. The white holy blade shot out from her hands, hitting one of the christmas trees. Then again, when have trees ever been hard to hit? Of course, it would only be a matter of time until she was attacked. She was just hoping it would be something like a fist, flying attacks... flying anything were out of her range. This was around the time another snowball hit, finally causing her to weave clear silk strings together, creating a spell shaped like a small ball. She used it on herself to heal before starting to try to find the source of the snowball attacks. This... was easier said than done.

    Leona dispelled Ramses and brought out the griffin in his place. As proud as the owl was, he was simply not suited for combat. The griffin was much more suited for combat because he could move quicker and hit a lot harder. The team would need combat-capable summons because enemies were everywhere and they greatly outnumbered the team by a considerable margin. The five mages had to deal with bears, elves, and a Christmas tree slinging presents that exploded and had random effects... in Yuvon's case, it somehow made his clothes disappear and left him naked.

    Leona spotted Garnet among the elves, who mostly ignored him except for the odd snowball lobbed in his direction. She wondered what he was up to but did not have time to talk. He needed help because it appeared that he did not have magic just yet, so she sent her harpies to help him.

    "Give Garnet some cover and avoid killing the elves if you can help it! Just knock them out!" Leona telepathically instructed the trio. They flew over the mass of elves and began dive-bombing them with their talons, causing the elves to scatter and turn their attention from Garnet to the airborne threat. They began lobbing snowballs at the harpies, who easily flew out of their range and dodged when necessary. Now that Garnet had a distraction to help him, it was time to turn to the more immediate threat, namely the polar bears menacing the mages. There were quite a few of them running about, including two that found Leona.

    It was time to go to work. Leona punched one in the chest with a Mach Straight, then hit it with a Hurricane Punch that connected with all twelve punches, knocking it down. Its colleague rushed at her and she jumped just in time, landing on its back and standing for a count of two then dismounting with a forward flip. She spun around upon landing and threw a Smashing Crescent spell at it which hit but had little effect on the burly quadruped. It only got angry... it roared and stood on its hind legs, raising its paws and swinging them downward with all its might. Leona jumped to the side and felt the wind generated by its paws rustle her hair.

    The blonde mage hit back with a Gale Cannon that hit it in the face but only staggered it. Its friend had gotten up for more and swiped at her with its heavy paw, which Leona barely avoided with a backwards jump. The griffin swooped in and gouged the bear with its talons before flying out of range of any retaliation, which gave her an opening to attack. Leona took full advantage of it. She raced in and hit the bloodied bear in the face with a flurry of punches, then used Sky Hammer to bring her heel down on its head when it lowered itself after receiving five consecutive punches to the face.

    The Sky Hammer kick knocked its face into the ground and knocked it out, leaving her facing another angry bear. It charged and tried to tackle her but only hit air because the blonde jumped forward and over it. She landed and used a Wind Bullet spell to hit it in the backside, propelling it forward and out of the way, which was good because another bear hurried to engage her. Leona faced the new threat and dodged its diagonal paw swing with a timely duck, then hit back with a Mach Uppercut that hit it under the muzzle. It roared and swiped back, grazing the edge of her skirt and ripping it but somehow missing her leg by the slimmest of margins.

    "I like this skirt!" Leona yelled indignantly like the bear actually cared about what it had just done. The griffin swooped in and gouged the bear's back with its claws before flying away, leaving the bear to stand on its hind legs and roar defiantly before Leona slammed into it with a Zephyr Charge, knocking it over onto its back. It rolled over and was soon coming back for seconds... the angry blonde was happy to oblige. She fed its appetite for pain with a Mach Straight, a flurry of three normal punches, then a Hurricane Punch to the face which hit with all twelve and knocked it down for the count.

    Leona took a moment to breathe before she was hit in the face with a snowball packed with ice. The blonde was not happy after the polar bear ripped the edge of her skirt and now an elf was laughing at her. She would show those annoying elves what they had gotten into. She cast a Wind Blast in its direction and knocked down it and four of its friends who were preparing to launch a volley of snowballs at her. It was Leona's turn to laugh at them as they struggled to get back to their feet.

    Her humor at the reversal of fortune was short-lived as another polar bear charged her from behind and knocked her down with a tackle to the backside that propelled her forward. Leona landed and rolled over just in time to avoid getting her back ripped into by its teeth; the griffin flew in and distracted it long enough for Leona to roll onto her stomach and get to her feet. Now she was staring down a polar bear and trying to think of a way to bring it down quickly, preferably without killing it.

    Leona started off with a Fast Ball to the face and followed up with a Wind Bullet that knocked it down for a moment. She was about to attack it again when another bear joined the fight, forcing her to back off and face two angry bears instead of just one. She had gotten in over her head, but she could not back down now. The Magic Council was depending on her. So was the team of mages that she was nominally in charge of.

    "It doesn't matter how many of you there are!" Leona defiantly challenged the bears before using a Wind Blast to knock them back. Her harpies were still giving the elves a hard time and her griffin was coming around for another pass, which meant that the blonde was effectively alone against two bears. Now would be a good time for a teammate or two to help out.
