    Little over a month had passed after returning from the Greenscape, a realm where nature was the dominant force and no form of industrialism had ever taken form. It was within this world that Solmar had seen a vision of perfection, of a world where humans had not gotten the chance to ruin much of the planet, kill various forms of life by pushing it towards extinction and having the audacity to build cities, factories or other facilities where there was once nature in abundance. While he had gotten over his initial hatred towards humanity and managed to slim it down to a more general dislike, there was still a lot people would need to do if he was to ever have his faith in humanity as a race restored. After all, there was no other species, aside from demons, where doing things for the sake of earning greater social status and lining their pockets with currency was as prominent as it was with humans. Luckily for him, Solmar had met a lot of people so far that actually sought to do the right thing for this world, and not just to earn more money and comfort.

    Where he had always been very picky about the jobs he took on, there were however also many eager and foolish mages out there that would do just about anything as long as it meant they got to earn their precious jewels and get recognized by the “Magic Council”, which was a governing body he had never really managed to understand properly. In nature, there were no councils of any kind. All there was, was an alpha that oversaw a pack and made the decisions while the others followed until the alpha was too weak or old to lead, in which case he got replaced by another. Clearly enough however, people seemed to like the idea of it, which was why many of them wanted to fall into their good graces. This had never been true for Solmar. He had always done things the way he believed they should be handled, doing the things he believed needed to be done for the sake of nature being able to thrive and the little people who dwelled in villages on the outskirts of society could continue to live with nature in a way that was different from the cities.

    But to get back on his earlier train of thought, he knew how some mages would take on any job without fact checking the origin of the job first. No one thought about the bear they were hired to kill, and how it might have lived in the spot where their contractor had built their summer home, which had become a temporary den for a curious mammal. No one thought about the monster they killed when they ventured into the Monsterlands because someone had built their farm too close, and now had their entire farmland uprooted or turned into a breeding ground. No, all people cared about in this world was currency and status. Through it all, corruption slowly took root in this world while people merely turned a blind eye to it. That said, most of them were actually blind to it because of how well it managed to hide itself while moving under the “watchful gaze” of the mages of this land. Due to the industrialization, many people would not notice it when fish gradually grew bigger, no longer edible and more aggressive towards other species.

    While such things would make things harder on fishing communities, it was not really something a mage would be concerned with as it might just be some kind of sickness or something caused by pollution. At least that was what people thought. Solmar however, was one of the select few who had seen some of the minions of corruption, being one of the few that had come into contact with some of these agents that sought to spread their filth and feed upon life itself. And that was exactly the reason why, for the first time in many, many years, Solmar found himself within the vast rainforests to the east of the country. Being quite used to spending time in forests and having a way with animals, he had nothing to fear from the poisonous plants he encountered along the way, nor from the predatory animals. In fact, some of them had quite some interesting things to say whenever he asked about the local “guild” known as Rakshasa. When he asked a panther, which had initially tried to attack the mage before it figured out that he could actually communicate with him, he claimed that most of them that he had seen in passing were quite naturalistic.

    Only being able to tell the young black haired mage so much, the least the large black feline could do was to point him into the right direction before going away to hunt for new prey. Pointing him towards the ancient ruins he could see through the dense foliage, it was not long before he made his way into the place. From what he could tell, he was at the very least somewhat impressed by how they had not built an entire new guild hall in these lush forest lands, but had decided to occupy the ruins that were already there. That in itself showed that they cared about nature a bit, though the fact that they were known as an “eco-terrorist” group to some and as a “dark guild” to most within Fiore meant that they might not appreciate it when a stranger invaded their guild hall without being invited. That said, he figured that once they heard him out properly, they just might reconsider trying to kick him out, though he would welcome the challenge. If they did prove to be violent, he’d be able to get an accurate reading as to what these people were capable of, and whether or not they would be worth bringing into the fold. For the time being though, he would first try announcing himself.

    Yooooooooooooooooooooo, Anyone in here? You have a guest!

    Among dryads Lily's stance on the civilized species could be considered controversial or progressive, depending on who you'd ask. it wasn't that she liked the idea of life being trambled and stomped out by a single large group which would pave over the world with stone and metal. However on the other hand she also didn't think that declaring all out war on the civilized species was the right answer either. As it stood her preferred path was to try and learn more about the humans and the other creatures that preferred to live in constructed buildings rather than nests and lairs while taking steps to at least soften their worst excesses. If she knew enough about how they worked and what they needed she might be able to find a way to protect all other lifeforms from the civilized folk without having to resort to wiping out or even severely diminishing the settlement builders.

    Of course part of that might also be that she wasn't exactly the most powerful dryad around, although she had been blessed with a lot of latent talent and potential. If she tried to face the civilized world head on she'd certainly lose, so even if she wasn't inclined to minimize the amount of damage to both sides she wouldn't have resorted to that plan. She could be a bit optimistic and reckless, but that didn't mean she was completely stupid.

    So her current position was mostly one of observation, only taking action against the most extreme forms of harmful behaviour from the civilized people. And even then she tried to destroy that which they used to inflict such harm on the world around them rather than killing them outright. Their tools allowed them to perform amazing feats but simultaneously they were also dependent on those tools. A trade off that might be worth it considering how effective civilization had been over the years, but it was still a point of weakness that could be exploited by someone clever enough to think of it.

    Right now, on this day at this point in time, however, Lily was communing with the jungle that the guild Rakshasa had made its home in. Sleeping inside one tree allowed her to feel pretty much the entire jungle through the roots which burrowed deep into the earth, and from the roots to the earth to the roots of other trees. If the creatures living on the surface knew what the world below a jungle looked like... They'd look at those tall trees towering high above and think how that was only about half of the actual jungle. Then they'd probably become very unnerved.

    It looked like the jungle was doing all right though. It was ancient, overflowing with primal magic and untouched even by the most stubborn forms of civilization. The closest thing to civilization were the amazon tribes which had managed to make their home amidst the trees, and frankly those didn't behave much differently from the other animals. Other than that the trees remained gigantic and resilient towards pretty much every type of attach through sheer size and hardiness, the floor of the jungle was a permanent war between various plants and fungi which tried to take as many resources as available, and especially among the animals there was a constant dance of life and death as the predators chased prey and the prey either defended itself or ran away. And only one side could win that conflict, and through victory the right to survive...

    The dryad helped out here and there, but knew better than to try and save every little unfortunate critter. The cycle of life was necessary, even if she had a rather soft heart. For dryads maintaining the health of their surroundings was important for their own health as well, and one of the worst things you could do was try to keep every herbivore alive no matter the cost. You could destroy an entire ecosystem that way.

    She'd have pondered on this concundrum some more, the balance between keeping creatures alive and not disturbing the cycle, if she wasn't alerted that an outsider was moving towards the guild. She could feel the ground trembling under their steps, a faint tremble that you'd only catch if you were listening with the roots of the trees rather than your ears. The stranger moved with confidence and no hesitation, and if Lily had to guess she'd say that their footsteps were those of a pretty strong person. You could often tell someone's strength by the way they walked, from several small variable.

    Remaining inside the tree for the moment the dryad homed in on the outsider, silently observing their arrival while considering what to do. She highly doubted she needed to alert the guild master, if this was important he was attentive enough to pick up on it himself. She could go out and greet the outsider... and figure out what they wanted. If they wanted something bad she'd have to be able to quickly react.

    The call for the outsider for anyone from the guild to show themselves made up her mind. As Solmar yelled into the tunnels that led into the depths of the Rakshasa guild hall he'd get several seconds of silence before a voice answered him, originating from some of the numerous vines which had done a good job of reclaiming the ruins from the palace that had once dominated this part of the area.

    "Give me a moment, I'll be right there!"

    Lily was true to her word, the dryad moving through the network of plants before exiting it, stepping out some thick roots and having her humanoid body form itself. She'd decided to reform a bit into the tunnel so the outsider wouldn't be surprised, and so she'd have a better chance to react if things went down. Not that she was sure she could do much if things went south: the outsider was a lot stronger than herself, that she was certain of.

    Solmar would see a rather short girl walking towards him from the depths of the ruins, her skin the rich brown of an oak tree, her eyes a vibrant green with sclera the colour of amber resin, and green hair which looked more like foliage than hair, including a yellow lily on her head. To top it all off she was wearing an outfit made of leafs, with the divided skirt at the bottom showing that she wasn't quite so silly as to think that a normal dress was a good idea in a jungle.

    Once she was close enough to see the stranger with her own eyes Lily waved and called out to them. "Ehm, hello!? Sorry, we don't get a lot of visitors. I'm Lily Ambrosia, but could you please tell me what brought you here? I'm guessing it's something urgent." If it wasn't something urgent she'd have a hard time believing he bothered coming all the way here. For her part she studied Solmar a little bit as she stepped up until she was mere feet away away from the man, her expression one of friendliness combined with curiosity and maybe the smallest amount of wariness at having someone on the guild's doorstep with no idea why that person decided to come here.

    Lance didn’t necessarily care for humans, but he did tolerate them. To him they were more of his play things rather than his friends or his equal. After all, they are the ones destroying nature and setting life’s natural forces in disarray. When it came to settling matters between nature and civilizations though, Lance cared about nature overall and will drive nature out of towns if that means that it will protect them in the long run but if the town were to try and threaten to hurt the forces attacking it then he would help with the destruction of the town. As a force of nature himself, his top priority was the protection of what nature the world had left. It was for this reason he had joined the guild in the first place.

    He was returning from a trip outside of the guild on this day though and he was pondering about the jobs he recently went on. When he entered the jungle though it was almost like a breath of fresh air. Around him, even more life sprung up from the ground as he walked. Pumpkins, squashes, and an array of red yellow and orange flowers covered the ground around his feet as he walked and returned to normal when he stepped away. This is the power that the spirits gave him: The power of fall. He was also a very playful person as heart, so it manifested into a magic that he was able to pull pranks people with. He was wearing his normal attire, his white Kimono and black uniform underneath. His hair was let down today so long, yellow-red hair flowed behind him as he walked.

    When he reached the guild hall he heard talking. One of the voices were asking someone why they were here. This made Lance raise an eye “A stranger?” he thought to himself, his smile growing wider and more mischievous. He ducked behind a nearby tree and chuckled to himself. In a puff of smoke, a yellow squash appeared in his hand, oozing with a slimy substance.

    One of Lances favorite things to do in his free time was to cause misfortune or despair to others as he saw other people as his toys rather than other people.

    “One” he whispered as he gripped the squash.

    Two” he tossed his hand backwards, getting ready for the toss.

    “Three! Sticky Melon!” he exclaimed loudly, lobbing the slimy squash at the stranger that had appeared in their jungle. He howled with laughter as he watched what happened next.

    wc: 443

    Sticky Melon:
    Sticky Melon:- C Rank
    Description: Creates a large yellow melon from the ground to be thrown, shot or stepped on like a land-mine. It has a sweet aroma, but if hit by an enemy… the melon explodes with a sticky yet sweet sap that clings to you. The result of the splash makes enemies harder to move.
    Category: Offense
    Type: Single-Target, Debuff
    Cost: 30 MP
    Range: 120 Meters
    Speed: 120 MPS
    Duration: 5 Post
    Damage: 60 HP
    Effect: Sticky Melon does damage upon its initial eruption-- however when it does, the target is coated in a sticky juice that weighs them down, lowering their speed by 55% for the duration of the spell. If nothing else, funny to laugh at.

    Shortly after taking the first step into the ruins, he was greeted by the first he believed to be a resident of the place. Activating his almost undetectable magic zone that allowed him to better read magic power, he made sure to stay on top of the situations. After all, these people were dark mages that belonged to a dark guild, though they seemed like the kind that would be useful towards his ends. That said, they were known for a few things to him, one of these being that they wanted to keep people from getting stagnant while also caring about nature. If the corruption was to continue to fester, there would not be anything to keep from getting stagnant, nor would there be any nature left to care for and enjoy. While it might have sounded a bit weird, the woman Solmar saw was more or less what he had expected of a nature-loving guild, even if it was one that was aligned with the darker spectrum. In a way, she had a lot of things in common with the treefolk from the Greenscape that he had met, yet was still different in some ways.

    You are correct in assuming I’m here for something important Lily, though I was expecting this place to be better defended and somewhat more… crowded. Is this not the Rakshasa guild hall?

    Bringing a hand up to his face to grab his chin as if he were pondering on something, he thought about how he had been quite certain that these ruins were supposed to be the guild hall. Maybe he was merely in the wrong portion of the place, or maybe they had their base located underground or something. As he slowly paced around the room to get a better look at the architecture, it looked as if he had completely forgotten about Lily being there in the room with him, though this was not the case. Even as his thoughts were somewhere else entirely for the moment, he was completely up to date on whatever went on inside of the room. In fact, his ability allowed him to be aware of everything going on in a rather wide range, the ruins being but a small portion of it. So even as he was admiring the old ruins, he was aware of what Lily was doing, as well as the person approaching from outside of the ruins. Not thinking much of it as he did not sense any hostile intent, he turned his attention back to the woman.

    I came to see if your guild was truly all that it was talked up to be, and to determine whether it would be worth recruiting you into the fold and protect nature. It is quite in need of people right n- Hold on for a second.

    Extending his arm to the right, a white flame came forth from it that enveloped and ate the strange squash that had been thrown at him by the person outside. Due to his magic, sneaking up on him was quite hard, while the person counting down, shouting and laughing out loud outside of the building did not seem to really be trying to conceal his actions either. With his magic doing the work for him, he could tell that the squash that had been thrown was actually an offensive spell, though it was one he had never seen before. He knew of people that could make fruits with their magic that possessed healing properties, people that could make poisonous spores and people that could manipulate trees or plants, though he had never seen a spell quite like this one. Part of him wondered what would have happened if he had allowed it to do what it had been tossed in for, just to see the full extent of this strange type of magic. But since that much was out of the question now that the final remains had more or less been devoured by white flame, he turned his attention outside.

    Hey! That squash you threw, what kind of magic was that?


    (686 // 1707)


    fire stuff:

    Name: Demon-Slayer's Volley
    Rank: A
    Category: Offensive
    Type: Multiple Target, Single Target
    Damage: 75hp (100hp as Single Target)
    Range: 225 meters
    Speed: 165 meters per second
    Duration: 6 posts
    Downside: -
    Description: This spell fires a series of small balls of fire and light magic, firing them either at various different targets or having them converge on the same one. These balls do not move very fast, but make up for their lack of speed with increased mobility as their trajectory can be controlled until they hit a target or expire. Due to the sheer brightness of this attack, a blinding effect can occur every post, but opponents that were affected in their last turn cannot be affected by it again.

    Libbier was never one to care much about rules. Not that she didn't follow them, she just didn't feel like there was much sense to most of them. Like, why should she not be able to punch those annoying bastards that kept pestering her for whatever reason, especially those that joked about her height. If it wasn't for her love for sweets, Libbier would most certainly prefer to keep adventuring around the world at her leisure, exploring lost ruins, large mountains, dark caves, and deep jungles. If there was something that loved as much as sweets, it was to live free and at her own pace. Unfortunately, this world was not one that allowed for such freedoms. After all, how would she pay for sweets if she didn't work? Even if there were some sweet fruits that allowed Libbier to recharge her sugar levels by a decent amount, nothing could replace chocolate and the like.

    As such, Libbier joined the known guild of Sabertooth to earn some money. But as if to mock her, something awoke inside her during that time, and it became slightly hard to finish jobs that required more finesse, without her other size not making a mess out of things and getting a pay cut as a result. This made very hard to have three meals a day without cutting on desserts. Furthermore she had to pay for Nero's, her exceed companion, share of food, which wasn't small since he had to eat a lot due to his body being absurdly large of an exceed, and he did not cut back when it came to sweets either, although he does have better restraint when necessary.

    That's how she ended up on Rakshasa following a rather simple meeting with the guild leader after she decided to leave Sabertooth for a guild that didn't mind the chaos caused by her other side. Still ever since that time, Lib has only done some odds jobs as the guild was situated on a rather isolated area with no easy access to confections. Very good fruits tho. The room allocated to her small and only had one bed, after all, being a member of Rakshasa did allow her access to one, but Nero was her 'pet' and unfortunately, he couldn't sleep in a box. As such the rule of thumb for sleep hours was that Nero would sleep on the bed, and Libbier would sleep on Nero. Pretty simple, and comfortable for all involved... well... not so much for Nero during summer.

    The day had started in the same as many, Libbier and Nero left to finish a simple job and buy sweets before returning to take a nap. They were both sleeping soundly when Nero heard something. It seemed like someone had come to the guild and was calling them out. Which was strange considering the nature of the guild. So he got up... or tried to.

    "St-op. Moooooving.", grumbled Lib who was still half asleep on Nero's chest.

    "Hey, I think we have visitors.", Nero said, trying to catch her attention.

    "Hmmm.", Lib squirmed, before starting to daydream, "Maybe a baker came to sell sweets."

    "Yeah. I seriously doubt tha- hey, HEY! WAKE UP! YOU ARE DROOLING ON ME!", Nero shouted as his fur became wet due to Lib's delusions, then the grabbed her by the scruff of her neck and pulled her out of him.

    Getting up, Nero held Lib on one hand while trying to shack off his fur clean. Somehow Lib was still half asleep even while being held in that position. But he eventually gave up, his once shiny black fur was now too sticky for comfort, he had no choice than to wash it off, so he kicked Lib with the promise that he would have some strawberries cut and ready for her when she returned from checking the front door.

    So Lib was slowly making her way to the front door, yawning as she went. Until she heard an explosion.

    "Are we under attack?", thought Lib as she began to run, now fully awake.

    As she sprinted, Lib activated her Left Eye of the Dragon to improve her chances in case the enemy used some tricks.

    When she arrived, she saw three people, two of which she was able to recognize as fellow guild members, but the third person she did not know. The strange thing was that for an attack, everyone seemed to be way too calm. Not to mention the aura around the newcomer was definitely not normal. He was strong.

    "What the hell is going on?", Lib asked before complaining, "I was trying to sleep!"

    The man who had entered their guild hall looked like he was rather cautious of the place himself, which put Lily a bit more at ease. It didn't mean that he didn't mean any harm, but at the very least he was behaving in a way which didn't disallow for the possibility of a positive outcome. Wild animals often had to threaten and posture when encountering strangers, and it certainly didn't mean that they were dead set on hostile relationships.

    That said Lily was still keenly aware that she was the weaker one here, and that if she had to equate this to a meeting between two strange animals she was the one who would have to submit in a battle of dominance. Fortunately as a dryad Lily felt more like a tree. As the stranger asked about the state of the guild hall the green-haired girl first gave a little shrug, then nodded in response to the actual question.

    "This is the Rakshasa guild hall yes. I think if you wanted to talk about defences you'd have to ask the guild master, but most people don't make it through the jungle. From what I've seen even most magic users have some difficulty with it." Inside the jungle Lily's observation abilities went far and wide, so she could see how for most people the jungle was a nearly impenetrable barrier. It was little wonder, given the raw primal power that flowed through the earth and the roots of the trees.

    She watched as the stranger appeared to have become more interested in inspecting the room than speaking to her, the dryad still looking rather curious but unsure of how to proceed. She still didn't know who this man was and why he had come here, other than that he was interested in Rakshasa. She was opening her mouth to ask when she faltered and looked to the side. Through the ground she could hear the faint tremors of people moving about, one of them heading towards where she and the stranger were and the other... somewhere inside the guild hall, and slowly beginning to move.

    When the stranger spoke up once more she jerked in mild surprise, having become distracted by the movements of her fellow guild mates. At his words she frowned, puzzlement beginning to overtake her mind before surprise came back for a second round as the next turn of events was the stranger blocking a pumpkin thrown at his head. She had been aware of the guild mate outside but not of their intentions, although the flying pumpkin certainly did a good job of identifying said guild mate.

    "That's Lance. He's a bit... well, he likes to entertain himself." She didn't actually know Lance that well yet, but it had already become obvious to her that he had both a strong mischievous streak and was either apathetic or oblivious to the wants and needs of others. While she couldn't exactly fault his playful nature she just hoped he wouldn't go overboard with this stranger.

    And there was also the other guild member to consider... "Sorry, I have to go meet the other one. And we might have to alert the master if I'm understanding you correctly." With that said she hurried over to the entrance through which Libbier would be arriving within seconds. She could tell that the girl had begun to run, and she guessed it was because Lance and the stranger had been using magic.

    As Libbier voiced both confusion and irritation that dryad put her hands up in a placating gesture. "Sorry Libbier, this man showed up and Lance decided to greet him by throwing one of his pumpkins, which... I don't know his name yet but he burned it." She looked over her shoulder towards the stranger. "I don't know exactly why he's here yet but he's mentioned wanting to see if we could help him protect nature. Could you maybe find Suijin? He should probably be the one asking questions but I'm not sure if leaving Lance alone with the outsider is a good idea." While she meant no offence towards her lively guild mate there was no denying that his chaotic personality could be problematic at times. Such as when a very powerful mage was standing on your doorstep and you had no idea what he really wanted.

    Listening to the explanation regarding the guy called Lance being someone who liked to play tricks, it reminded Solmar of the Halloween festivities of late. To him, Halloween did not have a whole lot of meaning, though the origins of the costumed parties meant a whole lot more to him. After all, during that time of Samhain, the boundaries between worlds were a whole lot weaker than they normally were, which brought with it a good deal of trouble. Using this period to cross between worlds, spirits and fairies were up to all sorts of mischief in Earthland, which was why he had gone around to put a stop to a good deal of them. As the king of the fae, or at least king to be, he had a certain amount of authority when it came to beings like that, as well as their darker cousins. But to make a long story short, the guy reminded him of the more mischievous fairies that would go around hiding things, get stuff dirty or cut people’s hair while they slept. But that wasn’t exactly a bad thing.

    Everyone was different after all, that much was something he had come to figure out once he started spending more time among other humans. Where the girl called Lily seemed to be one who would provide him with the answers he sought, the guy called Lance would rather lob pumpkins at him, which was quite new to him. Normally, when people sensed the difference in sheer magic power alone, they would think twice about bothering him due to his looks. At times, people had seen him and figured he was some kind of dark mage, though that was obviously far from being the case. But speaking of people being different, it wasn’t long after the initial explanation had been provided to him that yet another person had seemingly just stepped out of bed and into the conversation. Being quite loud about it, she too did not seem to care a whole lot about the gap in their power, which was somewhat refreshing to say the least. Taking note of the magic she used through his own magic, copying it was not that much of a stretch as his yellow eyes lit up.

    My oh my, what an interesting spell this is! In a way, it is quite familiar, though your spell works through the eyes, while mine is more of a… feeling, I guess you could call it. You’ve got a different color about you when compared to the others, which likely means you’re a bit stronger… but not strong enough to be a guild master… What color am I though?

    Keeping the spell active for a bit as he looked around in wonder, turning his gaze between the three mages that had made their presence known to him up until now. He imagined that the girl who’s magic he had copied would likely experience it as odd to have someone else be able to use the same magic she did. Things like these were exactly the kind of thing Solmar pulled a lot, though never really intentionally. He liked to know how magics worked, particularly the magic of others and magic he had never seen before, which was something his own magic was uniquely equipped to do. In a way, it seemed that this Libbier girl’s magic was quite useful for actually seeing magic with one’s eyes instead of doing so the way he did. All in all, him using spells other people possessed gave rise to how many believed that he possessed all forms of magic, or was at the very least capable of using them himself, which was both true and false. But that was not really important now, as he had come here for a reason. And no matter how annoying it was that he wouldn’t be able to question people about their magics in depth at this point, it had to be done.

    But uh, yes, do go and fetch your guild master for me if you would. I imagine it will make a lot of things a lot more clear for all of us. After all, time is not really on our side, and the world withers as we speak.

    It seemed a lot happened while Suijin was away and he only just got back into the Rakshasa temple when he did. Though Guild Master of the group after the leave of their first Master, Indra, he had been busy doing jobs and other duties outside of the guild to keep their reputation strong and seek out other supporters and patreons-- that and causing his own trouble.

    It was there in the Watering hole and waterfall where he was now, easy to find to the other members since they knew where the Water Slayer would like to frequent. The muscular, blue haired man was under a waterfall, washing himself and meditating as he tried to embrace the nature around him.

    Up till then, he had no clue about the stranger in the jungle... but he would be with the other's appearance to seek him out.

    (Short and sorry just juggling a bit, but officially entering now)
