    High above the treetops of Fiore hung a massive airship. It cloaked the landscape in shadow like a whale-shaped cloud. Sun glinted off of its metal sides. For a few miles around, a loud but not deafening whir could be heard as the lacrima motors kept the craft hovering in place. This ship mainly used carbon dioxide to stay aloft, pulling it in from the decks and externally and pushing out oxygen in return, much like a plant would. Unseen from below, a massive forest covered the top level. An invisible energy shield kept out the wind and kept in some of the oxygen produced by the ship so that an ideal environment could be maintained for the plants and inhabitants. Thoroughly engineered to be self-sufficient, this craft was a sight to behold. This was the S.S. Endeavor - an airship that belonged to Dagda MacLean.

    The Tetsukazan man had encountered the ship resting deep in the Phoenix Mountains. He’d nearly run into the thing due to its cloaking disguise that made it blend into the forest. It had been left by a mysterious member of his race with very little information as to why. The grounded airship had no name. Dagda had tried to fix it up by himself with varying success, so he had reached out to his friend Percy Dagger to help. The two worked together to get the ship up and running again and upgrade some of the old tech within it.

    During that time, as he discovered what all the ship was capable of, an idea brewed in Dagda’s head. It had been just a wisp nagging at the edge of his mind for a while, but now, the giant ship that could carry many people was the final puzzle piece. He was the kind of person to value the balance between advanced beings and nature. It was something that ran deeply in the culture of his people back on Tetsukazu. There was a delicate structure of life that had to be maintained, and yet not everyone cared. Not everyone was concerned about the destruction others caused, and he hadn’t noticed any large groups in Fiore that worked together to combat this issue.

    However, there were a few individuals Dagda had met on Earthland who seemed to have similar values as he. Though he’d met them at different times and places, they always rose to his mind when he contemplated this idea sparking in his head. In the captain’s quarters of the ship, he’d spent hours before bed thinking, plotting, researching. He’d scribbled down notes and mentally explored all the upsides and downsides until he was confident in the solidity of the idea. A name for the ship had come to him as he wrote down the last detail - the S.S. Endeavor. That’s exactly what this all was: an endeavor. Hopefully the name would make the former captain proud, wherever he was.

    Dagda desired to gather together people who valued the delicate balance of the natural world. Though he had only met a few, there ought to be more people out there who would be willing to join a group such as this. Originally the plan had been more of a small task force, but blossomed into something greater: a guild. Those who hunted monsters could be part of a team that extracted dangerous creatures and relocated them. Others who were more inclined towards natural spaces could work to research and preserve environments. All would work together to maintain the balance and correct one side when it overstepped.

    With the help of his friend Lazar, an old man who ran a medical supplies shop in Magnolia, Dagda had designed and printed some flyers. These papers were posted up on bulletin boards in the town and spread out to other towns. Dagda himself had gone to as many places as he could, spending hours tacking and taping his flyers up. The text printed on them spoke fairly vaguely of a banquet being held by Dagda to gather those interested in natural preservation. It stated a date, time, and location as well. This method was truly a shot in the dark, but it was the best way he knew of to get the word out as far as possible.

    In the navigation room, Dagda paced apprehensively. Each step rang out with the dull sound of boots against tile. This day had been long coming, the preparations had kept him up many previous nights. His dreams had been tumultuous, though none of them could be recalled exactly. The titan was putting his all into this day. His future in Earthland depended on how everything went.

    For the tenth time in the last hour, Dagda raised up the little control tablet to check that the shuttle pods were ready. A few taps on the screen led him to view the external lacrima-cam at the bottom of the ship. The pods stood on the ground below, as ready as they had been the last time he picked up the tablet. A little distance away lay a lake. He’d instructed anyone who saw the flyers and was interested to come to this area for the meeting. So far nobody had appeared yet, but it was still a while until the time he had designated.

    Dagda may have been a skeptic, but he was hardly ever a cynic. Hope beat in his chest along with his anticipate heart. People had to have seen the flyers. There would be some arriving, there just had to be! Too many people existed in Fiore for the turn out to his banquet to be empty. He knew he wasn’t the only one who held these values, he had met a few others before. But until the cameras notified him, the only thing to do was pace and hope. He briefly wondered where Percy was on the ship, but he knew the two-toned man would appear eventually.

    The self-guiding pods on the ground below were large enough to carry five people each up to the top tier of the S.S. Endeavor, called the Arborium. Made of mainly metal, the little contraptions were externally painted white and a gorgeous blue color. Glass covered the outside of the open hatches so the passengers could see out. There were enough pods for any attendees to take one up alone or wait for a larger group to go up in one. Either way, the pods would dock on the highest deck.

    Upon entering a pod, people would hear a little automated message play.

    “Welcome to the S.S. Endeavor! Thank you for your interest in today’s banquet event. We will be departing shortly for the top tier of the ship and will be landing in the Arborium, where the banquet will be held. There is food and refreshments available once we arrive.”

    "Say, Basin? You don't happen to know anything about flying whales, do you?" Lily asked her companion that question as she looked up at the giant thing flying high up in the sky, its shadow large enough to be mistaken as the omen of a storm. She'd done quite a bit of travelling in her time and seen quite a few things, but whatever was up there was new to her.

    Her companion, the earth guardian named Basin, didn't audibly reply. Ze lifted zirs head to look up at the whale, but ze couldn't recall anything like it either. Of course ze had even less experience with the outside world than Lily, having spent most of zirs life guarding the same location until Lily came along and convinced zir to come and explore the world with her. An eventful adventure it had been so far, but flying whales hadn't come up yet.

    "I thought so, I just wanted to be sure." Lily didn't need words to understand Basin's reply. The dryad was comfortably seated on the behemoth's back, the moss that adorned zirs body serving as a blanket to soften the edges of zirs cold hard exterior. "It's flying right above the meeting place though... Do you think it's related?" While the leafclad girl pondered the presence of the sky whale Basin lumbered onwards, zirs massive stone-shapen body relentlessly moving towards their destination. While ze was also curious ze'd leave it to Lily to think about that for the moment. Questions could be asked and answered after.

    The two had been wandering about, as per usual, when they'd come upon one of the bigger towns and decided to move through instead of around. While Lily had a stronger interest in civilization than Basin neither of them was opposed to exploring a new settlement. After all even if they'd already learned about the civilized folk there still was a lot more to learn, and every group of people tended to have their own cultures and habits which you couldn't learn from others. It was while they were wandering through the town, most of the inhabitants giving Basin a wide berth, that they came across a flyer. If it wasn't for Lily reading everything she came across they would never have found out that it was an invitation for a gathering of people interested in preserving nature.

    Given that Lily was a dryad and Basin an elemental, both of them had sufficient reason to attend and see what it was about. Ever since the Rakshasa guild had been disbanded due to most of the members leaving to do their own thing they hadn't been able to find any large gatherings of people who prioritized the safety of nature over their own needs. While Lily didn't blame people for having a strong sense of self-preservation -it wasn't like self-preservation was unnatural or abnormal after all- it was a bit sad to know that if something did get out of hand the best she could hope for was that she could call upon some of her friends and hope they'd respond in time to help out.

    So yes, a gathering of people who were interested in preserving nature was worth checking out. With some luck they'd make some more friends there who would be able to help out when there was a catastrophe too big for Lily and Basin to handle on their own. Libbier was a reliable friend and ally but the more people available and willing the better.

    Basin's large and persistent strides soon led the two of them to where the pods were standing proudly on the ground, their white and blue metal surface prominent amidst the green and browns of the forest. Sliding off of Basin's back Lily approached one of them, studying it from up close and tapping the surface. "...This is metal, isn't it?" It was a rhetorical question, but Basin still nodded zirs head as ze came closer to look upon the pods with zirs one blue eye. Ze carefully reached out and tapped the pod as well, a solid sound emanating from the contact as stone and metal met. The dryad didn't seem very concerned but nodded as she next focused on the glass. "I don't know much about these things, but it does look well made. And this is glass... There's space inside as well!" She rested one hand on the side of the pod as she looked at it, then at the shining sky whale above, then back at the pod, then at Basin. "This is the place where the meeting is supposed to be held, isn't it?" Basin nodded, having retreated zirs hand for the moment. "Nobody else here yet... I don't think the sky whale is a whale. Metal shines, doesn't it?" Again Basin nodded. "Do you think that these pods and that thing above and our meeting are connected?" A pause, and then a shrug from the earth guardian. "Maybe we should wait for someone else to arrive? They might know more about this kind of thing."

    Peering back inside the pod Lily frowned. "Do you think you could fit inside one of these things? It looks kind of small." Lily herself had the stature of a short human, so for her it wouldn't be a problem. Basin, however... The earth guardian was easily the size of several people, big enough that ze could carry several people on zirs back without any issues. Leaning over Lily to look inside as well Basin studied the insides of the pod, then shook zirs head. "Yeah, I suppose you're right. Even if you did fit inside how would you get in there to begin with?"

    "You are seeing exactly what I am seeing, are you not, Poppi?" Mathis asked the Artificial Blade.

    "I don't know about Poppi, but I sure as hell am seeing the same thing," Malos added. "Something like that wouldn't be out of place in Alrest. What do you reckon it might be? Urayan? No, it's got metal. It's not Ardanian either... point is, it looks like it could easily be something either of them would have floating about in their navies."

    Mathis nodded. "Endeavor, huh? Certainly, it is different from the technology of Alrest, yet there is some sort of resemblance within its architecture. Plus the intent of aiding nature... certainly the one sending the message cannot be Urayan, can he? I doubt there are any other citizens of Alrest within this land of Fiore. If there were..."

    Malos scoffed. "You'd be in a bit of trouble, wouldn't you?"

    Mathis shrugged. "Perhaps. The people seem to be receptive towards me during my returns the continent. Yet there are also many things that they are yet unaware about my self with, and perhaps seeing you as an ally..."

    The black haired Aegis shrugged. "If someone's managed to remember you from before the war, they'd have to be a Flesh Eater like you or somehow managed to live to two thousand years. It's unlikely."

    Poppi finally spoke up. "Calculations complete! Poppi is ready and prepared to bring Master to the top of the S.S. Endeavor whenever Master is ready! Malos is not allowed to join, however. Malos is too heavy."

    Malos laughed, clearly amused. "I always forget that you have all that sass. Be careful with it, you might get into some more trouble. Not just with Mathis, but with whoever you run into."

    Malos waved and left, fading into specks of dark purple light. Poppi grabbed Mathis under the arms, her feet turning into rockets, and blasting off towards the whale like ship high into the air. Mathis was honestly impressed with how well manufactured Poppi was. None of the parts were things that he made, yet they all worked together so well when he put them together. The modular feet, the impressive AI, everything. Of course, there was always the interesting conundrum of her appearance and mannerisms, but they were things that Mathis was too afraid to mess with in case he accidentally broke something within the systems, lowering her abilities.

    After a silent minute, Mathis found himself no higher to the ship, rather beside a pod stuck in the center of the lake. Mathis gave a confused look towards the AI, who merely shrugged and responded, "Poppi noticed pods from earlier that bear similar reading to the ship above. It's likely that the ship's owner intends for potential goers to come to the ship via the pods. Plus, it can mean Poppi gets close to Master!"

    This only made Mathis more concerned, but upon taking a look himself, it was much as Poppi said. Thus, he entered the pod, hearing a voice blare. “Welcome to the S.S. Endeavor! Thank you for your interest in today’s banquet event. We will be departing shortly for the top tier of the ship and will be landing in the Arborium, where the banquet will be held. There is food and refreshments available once we arrive.” Strange place this was, but perhaps it could provide a similar experience to that of Silver Wolf in a more convenient environment. Of course, he left with Leona's permission, yet he could not help but feel lackluster about the situation. Nonetheless, he waited within the ship, ensuring that he kept space away from Poppi as she tried her best to snuggle up with the Flesh Eater. Soon enough, Mathis would find  himself in a familiar, yet foreign environment.

    Post by Percy on 12th September 2020, 10:12 pm

    Today was the day.

    While the entirety of the massive, whale-shaped ship was empty and awaiting the new members Dagda nervously hoped for, there were two exceptions. One was obviously the leader of the new guild, Dagda, and the other was the now resident grease monkey, Percy Dagger. In the mid-level of the ship, on Floor II, were the dorms. Since he'd helped Dagda get the S.S. Endeavor up and running-- and perhaps in even better condition than it had ever been in-- Percy had been given first choice of the dorms. Once he decided to leave Fairy Tail and join, that is. Initially, this had just been a favor for a friend that turned into a truly fun and rewarding project that he admired, but things changed quickly. His time at Fairy Tail had come to a screeching, painful halt. After a dark guild attacked with a dragon that destroyed the guildhall he'd been inside, his hospital stay and pressure from his family had removed him from the guild he tried to call home. The banged-up young man had taken to hiding in his high-tech, industrial type apartment with the outer wall of windows so he could at least admire the view from his cage of existential gloom.

    Percy would have been content to continue hiding in his room alone, nursing his injuries, but that seemed petty. His friend was excited about today. Percy was officially joining today as well. Though his family had been somewhat persistent that they didn't want him to join another guild nor did he need to, Percy had always been rather stubborn once he made up his mind. Fairy Tail hadn't been a good fit. He couldn't keep up with the mages, and they were so busy he hardly got the chance to observe them and their magic, which had been nearly the entire point of being there. He'd deeply embarrassed himself more than once, and in the end, proved to be the liability at least some of them thought him to be. His pride was as bruised and broken as his body, but still he persisted. Meliora Vitae presented a much better fit, where he had a purpose in keeping the ship running smoothly, as well as could actually use his existing skills in both Rehabilitation & Research and the medical bay. He would still be able to observe mages and their magic, as well as magical beasts. Yes, this was a much better fit. He'd better get his butt out there for the banquet if he ever hoped to make those friends he kept intending to make.

    Metallic whirring echoed through the empty hall as he made his way to the end where the elevator was. A normal person would still be on crutches for the broken left leg, but considering his job within Dagger Corp, he was using the self-designed exoskeleton-like brace that would allow him to walk without assistance and without putting pressure on the damaged limb. It was a prototype design, so it was still too slow for his liking and left him with an unnatural limp, plus it wasn't sleek enough that he could hide it beneath his black slacks, so it had to be worn on the outside. Still, it was better than outdated crutches, not that he could have used them anyway. His right arm also bandaged and cast up nearly to the shoulder, so having it in a sling like it was would have prevented the use of crutches and landed him in a situation where he couldn't move unassisted. Scrapes and bruises about his face rounded out the visible wounds from his unfortunate incident, though many more were hidden beneath his clothing. Using is good arm to press the Arborium button in the elevator had him hissing in pain, feeling the broken ribs shifting around. It was absolutely true that Percy shouldn't be up and moving, but he'd been in no mood for reasoning on the subject. All he knew how to do to keep sane was move forward as quickly as possible. That and he had very little regard for his own well-being.

    With time, Percy did just as Dagda expected and turned up. He used his grease monkey ship permissions to access the navigation room, where he assumed Dagda would be. Sure enough, he was pacing inside with a tablet in his hand, watching the area newcomers were to reach for pick-up. Mustering up his best, most cheerful expression, the quiet young man pulled his crack lips into a smile. "Well? How many have we got?"

    “What the heck is that?” The redhead squeaked, her large blue orbs widening as she noticed the large flying object in the sky. It didn’t look like any animal that Sienna had ever seen before and seemed rather odd. A curious creature for sure and as the curious girl headed in the direction of it, she pondered about just what she was getting herself into. Her decision to come had been so sudden that she was still in a bit of a daze and she didn’t really know what was going to happen next. She’d never considered joining a guild before and had little knowledge as to how they worked. Her life had been spent exploring the vast forests of her home, Sakuramori and she was what people might call a child of nature or as some liked to call her, a witch of the wilds.. That wasn’t to say she hated humans or anything, just that she’d spent more time with animals than humans. Still, her mother had been sure to teach the girl all she’d need to know to survive among the latter and had encouraged her to travel. She couldn’t remain in the forest forever, after all.

    How had she come to learn of the guild? Well, a mysterious flyer had managed to find its way to her and had been enough to arouse her curiosity. To protect the balance of nature was a cause that she could certainly get behind and had been more than enough to inspire her to make the long journey. Oh, she had made more than a few wrong turns and getting lost was something that she was pretty good at but she had got there in the end. Sienna knew that she could be of help to this new group and was pretty sure that she had the magical power to help if things turned a little messy. She hoped that wouldn’t be the case but the flyer had spoken of dealing with more violent species of animal, which Sienna had met her fair share of. More often than not, she’d been able to use her natural gifts to simply talk her way out of a fight but some animals were so consumed with fear and anger that they’d refused to listen and attacked her, much to her dismay.

    As her gaze turned from the flying object to the ground, the redhead tilted her head as she saw a group of sphere-like objects littered upon the ground. They were strange looking things and she didn’t quite know what they were but rather than be cautious, she simply wondered up to one and knocked rather firmly upon it’s odd feeling surface. It was rock hard and a shiny gray colour and after a moment or two, it made a funny noise and would suddenly open up, revealing a rather nice looking interior. It was so strange but the girl didn’t hesitate, scurrying inside and taking a seat, having a hunch as to its purpose. Yet, when the door started to close, she would swiftly be back up again, pushing the door open.

    “Not yet please,”
    she said brightly, “Someone else might want to join us for the ride.” Sienna had no idea if the strange object understood her or not but it didn’t move, remaining still with the door kept open.

    Kyran shielded his eyes as he looked up at the massive whale-like contraption. A wry grin stole across his lips. Perhaps bringing his personal longship would have been more prudent. Not that he minded a little trip into the air. It appeared that several pods were available to bring people up onto the S.S Endeavor. Marvelous contraptions he'd explore later. While he had no head for machines, Kyran's boundless curiosity demanded a look at the inner workings.

    Another smile, this one wide, filled with joy, graced his lips. His curiosity was free again. Free to explore. Free to learn. The burden of shouldering a guild was now no longer his. He would mourn the lose of his first real home. However, he wanted to hand the reins of responsibility to someone else for a while. Let his battle lust and thirst for knowing take over. Perhaps bring the twins on an adventure or two.

    That stray thought brought to mind an image. One of Kyran flying with twin bundles under his arm, a mischevious smile on his face. Behind him was Gaia surrounded in motherly fury. Kyran chuckled at the image. It all depended on if he could join this guild. Given his lack of social skills it might end before it even began. A sobering thought.

    A click of his heels sent a spiral of wind about him. His black cloak fluttered, the hood pushing off his head. As the demon slayer rose into the air, he wondered if it would be rude to fly into this banquet. The pods had been specially prepared after all. Who cares? You were Alpha first. This Guildmaster should bend knee to you! Medea spat. Her tail was bristling. Kyran took that as a clear sign it was the right thing to do.

    He cancelled his flying spell and stepped up to one of the pods. "Exquisite..." He murmured, brushing his fingers along the metal. Stepping inside triggered some kind of message. Sounds fancy Eae chimed in. Erebus remained silent as Kyran sat down. At least one of his house guests were behaving. Ahriman sat curled in the corner of his mind. He murmured about strong opponents and fighting. Typical for the demon wolf. Kyran ran his hands nervously over the seat. What would the other people at this event be like?

    Looking up at the skies Lily saw other pods rising up towards the metal sky whale, confirming her theory that there was a connection between the two. Furthermore it explained to the dryad and the guardian that these pods were meant to act as transportation. Lily smiled as she looked at Basin [color+#228b22]"Looks like we were right!"[/color] Basin nodded, sharing Lily's feeling of triumph, but then pointed at the pod and made a small gesture which to anyone else might have looked meaningless. Lily, however, had a lot of experience reading her friend and companion by this point, and frowned as she folded her arms and looked at the pod thoughtfully. "But that doesn't help us if we can't figure out how to get you inside, does it?"

    Basin was capable of altering zirs size, but there were limits to how big or how small ze could become. The pod, regretfully, appeared to be too small. Motioning for Lily to step aside Basin lumbered up to the metal shell, opening the door and carefully pushing zirself inside. Moss and dirt and rock fell from zirs body as ze tried to make zirself small enough, but even when the elemental became as small as ze could become without it limiting zirs abilities ze couldn't fit inside... especially since Lily would also have to fit in there together with zir.

    "I could find another pod if needed, but I don't think it would help..." Even the optimistic dryad had to conclude that this wasn't going to work. Basin pulled back, closing the pod and turning to face Lily, at the same time recollecting the dirt and rock that ze had dropped during zirs attempt to fit inside the metal vehicle. The two of them stood there silently for a while, considering their options, when Lily clapped her hands together. "I know! Maybe Saku and Nepo can help!" Stretching out her arms she closed her eyes, concentrating as her left arm turned damp and began to drip with water while leafs sprouted on her right arm.

    The water that seemed to be flowing from her wood-coloured skin on her left arm at first dripped down, but then began to defy gravity, all of it gathering on Lily's palm. Forming one large sphere of water it first took on several amorphous shape: the water turned a more vibrant blue, and magic began to pour from the sphere. Within seconds the water had all been consumed and instead Nepo, the hippocamp, was sitting on Lily's hand, looking around with curiosity while his aqueous body shimmered like the surface of a lake.

    The leafs that grew from Lily's right arm kept growing, branches shooting out from her limb to sprout even more leafs. While at first the growth was wild and uncontrolled it would steadily become more organized: the branches formed a skeleton, and the leafs formed skin and scales. When Lily retracted the branches back into her skin Saku was sitting on her arm, his tail swaying back and forth before he quickly climbed on top of her head.

    "Sorry for disturbing you two, but we need to get Basin all the way up there." Lily pointed up at the S.S. Endeavour with her free hand, Nepo and Saku following the finger towards the airship. "Given that ze's kin of earth ze's not very good at flying. I know it's not really what you two are the best at either but together we should be able to figure something out, right?" Using her free hand Lily rubbed Nepo's head behind the sea creature's fin-like ears.

    The two small companions looked at Basin, then at each other, then at Lily. Lily looked back at him, although Saku's position meant that the best she could do was tilt her head back and try to look him in the eyes. Another moment of silence fell as all four of them considered the dilemma until Nepo made a sound most reminiscent of a whale, albeit with a higher pitch and faster. Saku responded with a bird-like chirp, Lily laughing as she realized the two of them had a plan. "All right, you two take the lead, I'll do my best to help!"

    Both the little companions jumped onto the ground, Nepo running over to where Basin was standing while Saku began to run circles around the rest. Nepo tapped Basin on the leg and then pointed over to an empty spot of ground. The earth elemental looked over, then nodded and followed Nepo's directions, Saku following even as he kept running circles. Once Basin was in the right place Lily followed, standing in front of the guardian as she concentrated to get a feel of what her two friends were planning.

    Nepo climbed on top of Basin, standing on zirs head where he began to produce an impressive amount of water. It cascaded off of Basin's smooth stone body, splashing onto the ground and drenching it even as Lily watched it wash over her feet. At the same time plants began to shoot up in a circle around the three of them, following the circle that Saku had been running. Realizing what she was supposed to do here Lily raised her hands, aiding Saku in growing the plants and forming them into a sphere. Soon the four of them were surrounded by a net of branches, vines, and leafs, leaving plenty of windows but encompassing them completely. Even Basin's bulk was accounted for.

    Where Nepo's water reached the edge of the plant cage rather than flowing out it stopped as if it had hit a wall. With the cage complete Lily redirected her magic to flow through Nepo, enhancing his ability to generate water. The almost supernaturally clear liquid gushed forth as if from a waterfall, the water level rising until first Lily was submerged, then Basin, then Nepo and Saku, who were both standing on top of Basin's head.

    With the preparations complete all four of them focused on their respective element: Basin focused on the patch of dirt which served as the base of the plant cage. Nepo focused on the water that filled the spherical container. Saku focused on the plants themselves, holding them together. Lily, serving as the nexus of all three elements, combined the powers of the other three as slowly their improvised vehicle separated from the ground and began to float into the sky, slowly at first but steadily gaining speed as it headed for the sky whale waiting above.

    Basin felt a bit embarrassed about all this: the only reason this much effort was necessary was because ze was both huge and kin of earth. Because ze wasn't meant to be in the air they had to expend so much energy helping zir float. However since they did have to reach the airship ze didn't mention it, instead focusing on holding the base of the magical transport together so it wouldn't crumble.

    Reaching the airship above Lily inhaled the water inside the plant cage, her hair quickly growing until it reached all the way to her waist. The same happened to the plants and the earth, Lily's hair growing wilder and with several flowers sticking out of the foliage. With their vehicle done the four of them headed into the ship, looking for the banquet hall or anyone who could help them figure out where the actual meeting would take place.

    "Good grief." With a large sigh, the brown haired man watches the mechanical creature fly through the sky. Actually, it probably wasn't even a creature. This was truly the epitome of technology during this day and age. Without saying another word, Krishna Gandhi uses his pencil as he quickly writes down in his notebook.

    Was this the maximum potential of Meliora Vitae? Where could their research take them? Honestly, Krishna's interest was clearly peaked by just the simple showing of the flying metal ship. The real question is would he still join the guild?

    All Krishna knows about the guild is that they seem desperate. Whoever the guild master is must be eager for some company. Hey, Krishna isn't exactly complaining. This was finally his chance to do something as a young adventurer.

    Upon entering the available pods, the voice from the intercoms made the man slightly jump from the shock. Due to his family riches, he has experienced similar technology like this yet this still seemed different. Without waiting for another person, Krishna allowed his pod to arrive at the ship.

    During his time waiting, all he could think about was his next course of action. He knew he couldn't trust anyone in there and he also knew they wouldn't share the same goals as him exactly. Still, this was a guild and an actual commitment.

    But no matter! Krishna should not be distracted from the book he is currently reading. If he can learn how to channel his inner energy into actual magic. He knows he is too weak to do anything, though he does have some hand to hand combat to back him. Still, he knew he was weak compared to this world. So how much power will it take for him to complete his goals?

    It was a sunny and beautiful day to go out to be alone and at peace. The vast field of vibrant green grass was filled with a minute amount of birch trees and shrubberies. Lush forests and a scenic view of the mountains could be seen, and the bright blue sky helps make the atmosphere feel warm. The lack of wildlife and noise makes it perfect for Fitzgerald to ‘meditate’, as he would put it. A cool gentle breeze swept across the land and brushed the wolf man’s fur. He closed his eyes, lost in the feeling of the winds touching his fur. A moment’s respite from his prep for meditation, however, as he continued fiddling with his paraphernalia once the breeze ceased to be. He focused on the task at hand, connecting his headphones and launchpad to his laptop. He turned it on, and it quickly opened up to reveal the desktop with a DJing app on maximize.


    He wore his headphones over his head, making sure to get it to his ears. One press is all it took for him to get started on his ‘meditation’ session, as he pressed a button from the launchpad. A respective sound is played, visible only through his headphones. It didn’t take long for him to get lost in the music as he continued to press more buttons, each creating a different sound. The sounds altogether created a melody. There was rhythm. There was harmony. It was music. He glided his fingers through his launchpad and continued to press keys like it was a piano, lost in his own creation. He concluded his jamming session with a soft sounding note from his launchpad, and he felt accomplished. He finished up and put away his headphones next to his laptop. He laid down the soft lush grass, and sighs. He closed his eyes as he let the breeze brush his fur, and though he looked relieved and relaxed, deep down, there was an inner turmoil that’s been plaguing his heart. He pondered on what his plans would be.

    “Why am I still alive…?” He mumbled to himself, looking up the clouds in the clear blue skies as if imploring them to give him an answer. But the great azure heavens were deaf of his query, as if mocking him. Nothing but silence was heard around him. He closed his eyes once more and remembered a promise he made to a noble wolf man before his passing. His memories of that incident were vague, but he knew it was his fault why the wolf noble’s bloodline ceased to be.

    “This is all my fault.”

    Shadows loomed over him, and he was aware of it. He opened his eyes to find not a giant cloud, but it looked like an airship, or rather, it looked more of a large flying base flying overhead. He paid no mind to it, he appreciated the shade after all. His peaceful idling was interrupted as a flyer decided to force itself on the wolf man’s face. He pulled it off him, seemingly annoyed at the litter, however, the contents of the flyer piqued his interest. It detailed an event where a banquet is held for like-minded individuals who are interested in preserving nature, and conveniently, the time and venue of the location is written on the flyer. The S.S. Endeavor, it was named, and the location of the event. Pods await for potential guild recruits to help them get to the air base, as it is written on the flyer. He may have a shot to redeem himself; a second chance granted upon him by the highest deities, if even existed in the first place. He stared at the looming giant mech in the sky, and it clicked to him that that may be the venue of the banquet, and there were instructions on how to get there.

    Wasting no time, he packed his things to his backpack and went for the pod nearest to his location. He was pretty lax when he was on his way to the pod, and he assured himself the pods aren’t going anywhere until the time comes. That’s what he was thinking, or perhaps it needs a special criteria? Whatever, he shrugged the thoughts on his head. It didn’t take long for him to find one of the pods. As described, it had a white metallic exterior with brilliant azure accents, a little more saturated than Fitz’s fur color probably. He noticed from a distance that the pod’s doors were open, and spotted what he assumed was a young woman with long, reddish pink hair, extending her arms in what he assumed to be an effort to prevent the door from closing. He thought she may not have knowledge of how machines work which is, honestly, quite cute.

    She might be a fellow recruit who’s also after the event. He stopped hesitating and walked towards the pod. She was… shorter than him. Judging from the interior of the pod, it looked like he would occupy at least two seats. Can he even fit in there? His big stature proved to be a detriment in most cases, such as this one. “Excuse me… are you here for the banquet as well?” He said as he looked down on the young female.

    Deciding to leave Sabertooth had been as easy as any of the other places he left with little warning. It was a nice enough place, and the giant tree guild hall was been comforting to him, but the rest of the guild didn't click as well as he'd hoped. When he found the notice for a new guild, it'd certainly caught his eye. Reading a little more about it, and he was easily sold. It lined up perfectly with Omera's teachings, focusing on nature and the conservation of life and environment. This was something he could get behind.

    Icarus didn't exactly follow procedure, though. Since he was already flying to the guild, he saw no reason to land and catch a pod when he could just land on the main deck. As he approached, the blonde marveled at the whale-like ship with the healthy forest growing on top. With a low whistle, large red wings flapped and sent him in a slow, wide circle around it. Impressive! He loved being in the air, so spending time on a flying ship was just as attractive as his winged trips.

    Once his brief surveillance was finished, he swooped low and passed through a barrier easily. He'd taken a chance there. It would make sense for a ship like this to have some sort of defences in place to keep out intruders, but at least today, it did not. Landing easily onto the deck, he lifted the wind visor from his eyes, paused, and peered around. There were very few others in sight, milling about in uncertainty. It looked like he'd be joining that crowd, since he didn't want to miss orientation because he wandered off into the ship's forest and got lost. Everything was absolutely massive but at least the air was crisp as Seven's unpolluted air. Should they speak to him, he'd gladly lump in with the mystified herd, otherwise he'd remain chilling on the outskirts with his hands in his baggy trouser pockets, waiting for someone to appear and give directions to this supposed banquet.

    Pimwadee Chakri


    Moving on.

    Pimwadee had thoroughly enjoyed her time at Silver Wolf, but she had come to Ishgar to travel and explore. And there was something else, she had also hoped to find a means of purpose. She didn't just want to learn, but she wanted to make some kind of difference, to have some kind of positive effect on the world around her. This she had become sure of since her worth with Ling on Shadow Island. Ling who was no longer at Silver Wolf, a sweet goodbye as he left to do other things lingered in Pim's mind for several days. She felt a little without purpose for several days, not sure how Silver Wolf fitted into her plans to explore. She enjoyed the guild and getting to know the people there, but it didn't fill that space. Lately, she had felt an almost sensation of void, as though there was something important ahead but she wasn't sure what it was or how it would make itself known to her. At least that was until she found the flyer advertising Meliora Vitae.

    Like Silver Wolf, it was a space for those who wanted to preserve the world as it was, the aid it the balance of humanity and nature. The very thing that had caused her so much anguish since her travels. The more she learned about it, the more she felt like this was the path she was supposed to take and so she had given in. Bidding a kind thank you and farewell to her guild, she would leave the cold slopes of the mountains and travel to the designation [place for those interested in joining the new guild. She arrived at the place where the transport pods were situated, seeing the crowds that had gather Pim was sure she had found the right place. Stepping inside the pod, surrounded by faces she didn't recognise. She smiled politely at them, the fabric of her Lhukian clothes to cover a little more of her skin as she did so. The white fabric two-piece was much better suited to this weather than the snowy mountains she had frequented lately, but she was still very much a sore thumb sticking out amongst the others here.

    Yuki did not consider themselves to be keenly interested by conservation efforts, but they had still taken a pause at the bulletin board this morning. A certain flyer related to that topic had attracted their attention. Upon arriving at the scene, they realized they might be a tad bit late to this party. Already, several pods were floating up through the air until they reached what looked to be the venue for the banquet: a floating airship. Keeping their movements unhurried, Yuki slipped into the nearest pod with an open door, not bothering to check whether it was already partially occupied.

    The situation would turn out that Yuki was alone. Perhaps that was for the best; although the yokai spirit could muster an endless amount of energy in the right situation, today was not the best day for them. Some mixture of traveling this long distance and not yet breaking their fast was slowly wearing on them. Yet this banquet was a lovely detour and promised a highlight to an otherwise dreary day. Just as they were taking a seat in the pod, a minute crackle of static came through and a voice filled the air.


    “Welcome to the S.S. Endeavor! Thank you for your interest in today’s banquet event." Yuki closed their eyes and nodded along, noting the name down vaguely should it be of any further importance. "We will be departing shortly for the top tier of the ship and will be landing in the Arborium, where the banquet will be held. There is food and refreshments available once we arrive.” Remarkable. Whether the food and refreshments referenced were the banquet itself, or if there was to be a more formal luncheon or dinner type event, Yuki was thrilled by the mention of food. Their posture straightened up a tad bit as they considered the possibilities. From outside the pod, they caught a glimpse of a pod on the ground through the glass. There appeared to be three or more individuals within, and they shuddered at the concept of sharing a space with so many.

    These transportation units were not so cramped; they were rather roomy, actually, but Yuki would have hated to start off this lovely banquet with a feeling of discomfort. There was sure to be time to meet other like minded or intriguingly different individuals later.

    It wasn’t any secret that Tabitha had been a big advocate to loving nature. Sadly, growing up in a modern setting of life didn’t let her feel as though she were not thrilled to learn about something note forming in the winds aimed for the very purpose of preserving that which she loved. As the Sinisterre had no other allegiances or issues aside from any family related tasks, this would be a great way for her to hone her skills and prove herself to more than just herself. Besides, this could very well help more than just herself in the long run, so there wouldn’t be any issue with her going about known as someone close, but not really there. Not so much in work ethics, though. Overall though, she was in a happy and chipper mood to come to a banquet that was free! All she had to hope was that the food wasn’t of.. common quality. If anything was different as opposed to the spoiled palette of the cat girls tongue, she would know it right quick and in a hurry. The only exception was with fish. So long as it wasn’t from a can, you couldn’t really mess up fish!

    Now having a mouth watering appetite for everything having to do with aquatic life, Tabitha came towards the location where she believed she had to meet the group up for this banquet. Why she had to come to them at first was a wonder, but the travel through the areas to get here was simply a joy not to pass up. Enjoying the scenery around her while she approached the area at hand, she could see through the spacing of trees in front of her a large metal structure of some sort. Weird.. why would an airship be on the ground? Moving closer and through the thicket of forestry, she had found that this was not the ship, but rather some kind of large object. Was she looking at a dud bomb? Wait, could it explode!? No no... the fact someone would do something like that away from an inhabited area made no sense. At least now she wouldn’t have to worry about trying to escape a bomb blast... again.

    sniff sniff... sniff

    “Wait... that smell...” Eyes narrowed as she had caught a whiff of something she didn’t like... canine. As she stepped around the object, she examined it more and it quickly became clear that she was looking at just a rather large pod of some sort. Well, at least that was a relief. The cat girl would pause in front of the pod. There were multiple of these and with one being partially occupied as it was, that same canine scent carried heavier towards the one she had looked at. “Tch.. I guess they’ll let any ol’ mutts in here...” With a small scoff from her muttered comment, she would move towards the next available pod, waiting for it to open and hearing it play an audio message into the pod. At least the banquet part sounded much more fancy and upper scaled than just a free meal. Once inside the pod, she would seat herself down, paying no mind to anyone else that may have been inside.

    Leave the Future in the Past, We're Living in the Present now, Baby!



    Clanking of a hammer pounding metal together could be heard ringing around the laboratory. A black haired woman, wearing a white lab coat over a grey striped blouse and a black pencil skirt that went down three fourths of her thigh, was working on assisting her peers. They were working on a side project outside of work. Bleeps and bloops and other strange noises came from computers around them as the banging ensued. A couple people were at computers as they were taking in more numbers. The banging stopped momentarily as shuffling came from inside before purple eyes peered around the edge of the opening of the machine.

    "Alright, I think that hole is patched for the machine finally. Want to crank it up to see?" She calls out just as she was working on getting out after seeing one of the peers nod. “If you guys want to have me help more, you should seriously consider making it bigger for me to be able to properly get in there. Six feet tall isn’t as small as the rest of you turds.” She teases as she moves her foot just right. To her luck, her foot got caught on a stray wire and she felt the panic and fear instantly smack her. “Don’t start it ye-ah!” Without checking to be sure that the purple eyed woman was out of the machine, the people had turned it on and it went on without a hitch. Screams were heard as someone else in the lab realized she was in the machine still, and a spark zapped from the inside just as the two at the computer were scrambling to shut it off, just a second too late. Where the woman had been, nothing remained.



    Without warning, the world suddenly went into a kaleidoscope of colors as she was suddenly falling through what she felt was a portal of sorts. This was not supposed to happen. The machine was supposed to revert plants back to a time in their life where they could have thrived, even fossilized plants, not transport people! Or was she possibly dead? ‘No, I’m still with you. We’re alive.’ Tears welled up in the black haired womans eyes as she smiled to that. It wasn’t her time yet. ‘What do you think happened, Veles?’ ‘Not… sure myself? Whatever happens, I’ll stay with you.’ ‘Would be lonely without you.’ Just as she said that, she felt herself being sucked in one direction. It nearly felt like she was being ripped before she felt cold and quite literally thrown into darkness.

    A scream escaped her lips as she was thrown out of the darkness and into a bright spark. After that spark, she was quickly slammed into something metal, and hard. A groan escaped her lips as she realized she was on a ground. Slowly she moved to lift her head up. Before her was a young redheaded man that made her purple eyes grow wide. “D-Dad?!” She stuttered out before she instantly was throwing herself back against the otherside of the metal contraption. Her quick assessment told her it was a traveling pod, and one she felt she was familiar with? She quickly let her eyes go on the man before her. ‘Something’s off about him… he’s younger.’ ‘You think!?’ ‘See what’s going on?’ “Where are we heading?” She demands as she looks up to the top at the glass of the pod. ‘It’s the Endeavor.’ What the hell was going on…? Her face would show that she was obviously confused about this, but she was also guarded.

    Lyretich took relaxed steps to the described place in the flyer he had picked up a few days ago. The flayer was inviting people to a banquet being held by someone named Dagda for those interested in natural preservation. The young male was a big lover of animals and all kinds of creatures, and banquets, as they are a place to meet new people and possibly make some friends. A smile of excitement appeared on Lyre’s face as he neared the stated place, his eyes opened wider at the sight before him – a huge flying object in the sky above the ground and some weird looking things on the ground. It looked like there were already some people on the spot. Hopefully, he wasn’t last.
     
    The little contraptions were externally painted white and gorgeous blue color, luckily some of them were already open, probably because someone was already in it, lessening the internal worries Lyretich had, being alone in an unknown place is always more nerve-wracking then with other people. As he stepped inside the object, he saw a girl already seated down. Her hair was black with a white strand along the right side of her face and apparently emerald green eyes. “Oh! Hello there!” Lyre greeted the girl with excitement in his voice while looking into the emerald pair of her eyes: “Are you here for the banquet too?” He kept on his monologue while he was settling down.

    Dagda turned as he heard Percy’s voice, looking towards the doorway. There he saw his young friend approaching, assisted in his movements by the brace of his own design. A quiet whirring spread around the room. The machine seemed to function well, albeit slow, but still had to remain above the clothes.

    “Percy,” the titan greeted. He couldn’t help the sympathetic smile that crossed his face. The scientist looked like a mess. The bruises and cuts that Percy had acquired were in the process of healing, but were still a harsh sight to see. A cast still covered most of his arm and the limp the brace caused was more noticeable than not. Dagda knew he was probably still in a lot of pain. While he was worried about his friend, he’d tried not to be smothering with his concern. He didn’t want to damage the young man’s pride by seeming like he pitied him. More than anything, he felt empathetic. Going through such a large and traumatic injury had to be tough. The first few days since Percy had come to the ship after his injury, the titan checked in on him frequently. Now, though, Percy had kept to himself a lot and spent many hours in his room, and Dagda left him alone for the most part.

    It was good to see Percy up and moving, though. Some movement and interaction with others would be good for him. “Nothing yet, but I’m hopeful. How are you feeling?” The question was casual as Dagda glanced back at the tablet, though there was a layer of concern.

    Just then, there was movement on the lacrima cam display. People had started arriving around the lake. “Look!” Dagda walked over to Percy and tilted the tablet so he could see. His grin widened. People had seen his flyers! They were here! Hopeful excitement filled his body. Maybe, just maybe, this endeavor would work.

    There were people of all kinds approaching the pods, one even accompanied by some sort of stone creature. Dagda couldn’t wait to meet them all. They started filing into the pods, some taking off right away with just one or two people while others waited for more people to join before departure. He watched on the lac-cam as the pods flew upwards. Their destination had been set to the Arborium.

    “Let’s head to the deck,” Dagda suggested to Percy. It was probably best if they were there when the pods landed. Assuming the young man would agree, he would take the lead, heading to the door of the navigation room. Mid-step he remembered that Percy was walking slower at the moment, so he slowed his own pace. As the two walked, he would stay at his friend’s side, not wanting to leave him behind.

    When they reached the Arborium and made it to the center, they would come upon the center of the deck. There was a clearing here, paved with neatly cut stone. In the middle sat an elegant fountain that continuously poured water, filling the space with a gentle trickling noise. On the bow side of the courtyard, many tables had been set out and covered with tablecloths. Closer to the fountain were more tables, these sprawled with dishes and trays of food. All of the food had removable lids to keep it covered until the guests arrived. Right next to the fountain sat a small podium-type piece, where Dagda intended to address the people once they arrived and settled.

    Unsure of where exactly to stand when the arrivals began, Dagda decided to linger around the podium. He fetched a glass of water from the refreshments table and returned to his place, setting the tablet down on the podium. Earlier, he had decided to wear something formal but not super fancy. A dark button-up shirt covered his top and black slacks adorned his legs. Glancing to Percy, he would give his friend an eager smile. All of their work had come down to this day, this moment. He was certain it would pay off.

    The pods began to rise above the edge of the ship, their whirring engines carrying them over the Arborium. They would move to the edge of the courtyard, a short distance from the tables. A gentle and secure landing would be assured before opening the hatches with a hiss.

    Kyran jumped as a woman suddenly appeared in the pod. She slammed into the floor as if falling from a great height. Magic swirled around the redhead as he prepared for potential battle. As the woman lifted her head, she spoke. "Dad?" Then she leapt up and backed away. Kyran mirrored the movement. Unfortunately, it caused the pod to take off. The door closed while the pod gently lifted toward the giant ship.

    Kyran's mind was racing. Another child? It wasn't possible. Claudia claimed only Ava had resulted from their tryst. Besides this girl looked nothing like Claudia. Plus Kyran hadnt touched anyone but Gaia since Claudia. This girl couldn't be his. He eyed her warily. Could she be like one of those girls like in his books? That thought made Malinda perk up.

    The snake slithered forward in his mind. Sssshe ssseemsss interesssting. What issss her name? Where did sssshe come from? The demon's interest deepened Kyran's suspicion. He dropped his magic and held out his hands placatingly. Malinda tried to speak but he shoved her back. There was no situation where the snake would influence him away from Gaia.

    "Uh, you hit your head pretty hard. Um..." He swallowed hard. How to approach this next bit? Kyran slowly lowered one hand. The other scratched the back of his neck. "I'm happily married so I don't have any interest in being your 'daddy' either. We're heading to the Endeavor. I'm sure there are a few people there that might want to be your daddy. These flyers were put everywhere. They could have attracted all kinds. But thats not for me."

    The pod stopped at the Endeavor. The door hissed as it opened and a pleasant voice told them to disembark. Kyran carefully moved to exit the pod. His back never faced the woman once until he was out. The pod had brought them to a beautiful courtyard. Tables were set up with a fountain dominating the scene. It took Kyran's breath away. Inspiration poured into his mind simply from this vision.

    The redhead advanced to the food tables near the fountain. He noticed a small podium with a rather large man near it. The formal wear of the man made Kyran look down. He'd taken the opportunity to dress down. A white button up with black slacks, his black trench coat thrown over it. Worn boots covered his feet with fingerless gloves adorning his hands. He felt bad for the getup now. Being professional didn't come naturally to him even after a short stint of being a guild master.

    His hunger forgotten for the moment, Kyran approached the man. He felt a need to be at least a little professional now. A hand was held out toward the man. "Are you Dagda? I'm sorry if you aren't. My name is Kyran. I wanted to meet the captain of this magnificent vessel." The redhead looked around, still appreciating the vast machine. A wonderous work that made his fingers itch for a quill or pencil. "I've been around many flying vessels but this one... this one is absolutely magnificent. Its a pleasure simply to behold it, let alone stand upon its deck. Are there any others like the S.S Endeavor? Or is this the only one of its kind?" His curiosity was peeking from the bag he'd shoved it in. He felt it settling back into his bones like an old friend returning home. Hopefully, the man could assuage some of it.

    The pod's movement was remarkably smooth, soaring through the sky straight as an arrow without the slightest hint of turbulence. Perhaps ether was involved in this? Truly the mechanisms behind this machine were strange, but impressive nonetheless. Poppi, too, noticed it, pulling off a hatch despite Mathis's warning and began to fiddle with some of the wires. "Poppi wishes to see if she can reverse engineer some of these to improve Poppi's own systems!"

    Mathis sighed, leaning back. "That is all well and good, Poppi, but you must take into consideration that these pods are likely to be used on many occasions. I doubt that this ship has an unlimited supply of pods."

    Poppi dismissively waved a hand. "Poppi is not concerned. If Poppi breaks something, Poppi will fix! And if Poppi breaks thing before arriving on ship, Poppi will help Master onto the ship!"

    Her promise was cut short as the pod docked with the ship, soon letting the Blades free from the missile sending them upwards. Mathis looked around. An artificial environment? No, it seemed unlikely. Much of this area seemed truly natural, living trees painting across the ship's hull as it soared. "I would assume that normally this would be an immense drain on resources were it not providing for itself," he mused to himself. "Perhaps the ship runs upon the circulation of air from the trees? Would not be too dissimilar from an Urayan craft. It is markedly not Urayan, so I believe it is apt to say that the ship is not Alrest craft, as unlikely as it would have been either way. I do not suspect many from Alrest to travel this far. It is a long journey after all." He slowly made his way towards where it was evident this "welcoming party" was to be, already seeing a few people nearby. One of them looked remarkably familiar.

    "Ah, it is a pleasure to see you once more, Kyran-san," Mathis said sternly. "It certainly has been some time." He turned towards the giant of a man in front of him. "I will assume you are MacLean-sama. I am Mathis Lora. It is a pleasure to meet you as well. If it is not too much of an issue, do you mind if, following the banquet, I investigate some of the inner workings of this ship? I am curious to the mechanisms behind it."

    It had been a few weeks since Cassiti’s fateful meeting with Dagda Maclean in Minstrel. Much had happened to Cassiti during that time, though most of it had simply been getting further exposure to the modern people and cultures of Earthland. She had eventually made her way into Fiore, which seemed to be the hub of the continent’s activity. There were a great deal of people that lived in the country, and most of the cities that she had visited so far had been so crowded that it had been all but claustrophobic for her. The Avalonian wasn’t used to being around so many people at one time, and not just because the population of her own home was only a few hundred. Cassiti had spent most of her life so far in all but total isolation, occasionally seeing people from afar but never having any real interactions with anyone but the priestesses that raised and educated her since birth. Naturally, a country that had thousands if not millions of people living in it was quite the cultural shock.

    But that certainly wasn’t a bad thing. For the most part, the people she’d met were exceptionally nice, and very understanding of her as a foreigner. Most people struggled with her thick accent, but there was little Cassiti could do to help with that. She was about as fluent in the common tongue as she was ever going to be, but nothing would shake the roots of her speech. Nonetheless, most people were very good about answering her questions, guiding her toward things she was looking for, and helping her understand concepts that she’d never needed to worry about before, such as the use and importance of currency. Luckily, Cassi had yet to actually need jewel for anything. She had plenty of supplies to feed herself for a while, and she was always more than content to find a quiet spot to rest in the embrace of mother nature at night. While a lot of things that people used money to obtain were certainly interesting and desirable to her, they were things she could live without.

    During all that time, however, her interaction with the exceptionally tall man with dark hair had been ruminating in the back of her mind. He’d had a kind aura, and she had been quite moved by the way he had dedicated several days of his life trying to help an injured horse in a herd that had staunchly denied his attempts to approach them. He’d shown patience and persistence, despite his worry about not being able to help the beast in time, wanting to do what he could even if he didn’t have magic or any other sure means to heal the animal’s injury. The horses had come to her of their own accord when they’d sensed her in the distance, drawn to her through her connection to her goddess. Once she had been there and reversed the injury on the animal, she had calmed and reassured the herd enough to let Dagda approach, and it was from that conversation that the man invited her to the guild he was in the works of forming.

    She had liked the idea of the guild immediately, but needed time to think the offer over, unable to rashly pledge herself to anything without being sure that it wouldn’t put her in a place of compromising her faith and responsibilities as an Oracle. Given that the guild wasn’t quite ready to launch at the time anyway, her request to think about the offer had been received and more than reasonable. The problem had laid in the fact that she had no means of remote communication, but Cassi had faith that if joining his guild was the right thing for her to do then they would cross paths again, some day. And ever since that meeting she had given the matter great thought, coming to the conclusion that not only would joining Dagda’s group not cause her to stumble in her path, she came to believe that it would actually give her more opportunities to do Aryannrhod’s work.

    The problem was whether or not she would be able to find him again. Luckily, her faith had been rewarded. She had been passing through a town, looking for any local churches to visit, when she found a flier advertising a feast being held by Dagda himself, requesting an open meeting for any and all that might be interested in the field of natural preservation. And luckily, she’d found the flier with enough time to actually make it. After getting some quick guidance from the locals as to the general direction of the location on the flier, Cassiti hopped on her horse and started making her way there.

    It wasn’t a terribly long flight. Kismet was a strong mare, dun colored with black mane and tail, black hooves, and a slight black coloring on her muzzle. She had powerful wings adorned with feathers that matched the coloring of her flank. The horse was the only kind with wings that she had ever run into on Earthland so far, and there had been no mistaking for her that the gentle but dangerous creature had been sent by her goddess to aid her on her pilgrimage. It had found her during her journeys and had not truly left her side since, only letting Cassiti stray into cities and towns for a time before eventually finding her again when she left.

    The Arborium came into view after only twenty minutes or so of flight, the great ship hovering in place out in the distance. As she got closer, she could see its top was almost entirely plan life, like a miniature forest atop of a field of metal and glass. The S.S. Endeavor was unlike anything she had ever seen before, the very sight of it taking her breath away. A cluster of smaller ships rose up to meet it from the surface, which must have been the transports that Dagda was providing to those that needed assistance getting onto the ship’s deck. Since Cassiti didn’t need any help with that, and presumed that trying to bring a winged horse inside a smaller, enclosed ship would be more of a burden than anything else, she simply made her way straight to the deck on her own.

    Kismet touched down gently in a small field of grass just outside of the treeline, in full view of the podium and the area that had been set to greet the incoming guests. The mare stretched her wings briefly before tucking them back against her sides, giving Cassiti the room to carefully and gently dismount. “Asante, Kismet,” she murmured softly to the beast, petting the horse’s head before offering her a fruit in gratitude. “Tafadhali subiri hapa kwa sasa.” The mare accepted the offering, the fruit gone within only a few quick bites before she started chewing on the grass in the field, her tail idly flicking away any flies that thought to try for a nip on her flesh.

    Cassiti walked slowly toward the spot were people were beginning to disembark from the shuttles, clearly a little uncertain about what she was doing. She knew no one here, and likely would not aside from Dagda himself, but he was up at the podium already talking to another person with him so unless he saw her and wished to come say hello she would not bother him for now. Instead, she carefully went to stand amongst the others gathering in the area, looking awkwardly and shyly at the sizable group. She pulled her cowl down so that she could see better, the white and gold cloak hanging gently from her shoulders. She had dark brown skin and black hair that was done up in thick braids with gold bands. Deep emerald colored eyes scanned the area cautiously. She wore a black long sleeve shirt that left her midriff exposed, and a tight fitting pair of matching black pants with a white belt that hung loosely around her hips. Standing at slightly over five and a half feet, she was somewhat shorter than most of the people present.

    Not entirely sure what to do just yet, Cassiti merely stood off to the side by herself, glancing around and taking everything in as she waited for further guidance on what to do next, or for someone to approach her if they wished.

    Krishna slowly walks out of the well engineered pod with a book still placed on his hand. Turns out Krishna was just completely distracted yet still vigilant at the same time. It was rather amazing to a see behemoth like him easily moving around and dodging obstacles while also reading a book. It was something one would see in a very weird sitcom or in a Guineas Book of Records: when would Krishna fall down or bump into someone?

    Probably never. He was way too good at this skill of subconsciously reading. The only way he can bump into someone is if another person purposely rams into Krishna. At that point, the only thing that will happen is the wrath of Krishna.

    What was even weirder was how Krishna was ultimately listening in to the conversations. He was noticing how Dagda was a gigantic man like himself. In a way, it felt like Krishna and Dagda were two sides of the same coin: yin and yang. Maybe there will be something that can result from that comparison.

    Other than that, Krishna didn't really participate as much, he was simply just there. In a way, he was the polar opposite of what a guild member usually is, as he just didn't want to talk to anyone. As of right now, what mattered to him was the rather interesting book he was reading.

    With the four of them having arrived on the ship and with their self-made vehicle put away Lily looked around with visible surprise as they found themselves in the middle of a forest. It wasn't too densely packed, but nevertheless it was a forest on top of a giant flying metal device. She could feel that the ground was made out of dirt so the trees and flowers had something to secure their roots with, but she was left with the question of who had made this place and why they'd have gone through the trouble of covering the top of the airship with so much green.

    "I guess that means they're serious about preserving nature, right Basin?" She turned back to look at Basin, who had also been studying their surroundings. There wasn't a lot of earth here, but nevertheless ze felt fairly at ease with all the dirt and plants around. Although the fact that they were airborne still left zir a bit out of zirs element... At least the airship was large and sturdy enough that ze didn't have to deal with constant reminders. Nodding towards Lily to show agreement with her words ze pointed towards where other people were gathering. This time the dryad nodded and began to walk. "You're right, we should go greet the others, While we were flying up I saw some of those metal spheres take off so there should already be a couple of people here."

    Basin followed closely behind as the plant girl walked towards the clearing with the podium and the other preparations for the banquet. Nepo and Saku both remained seated on Basin's shoulders, letting the big earth elemental do the walking while the two of them looked at their surroundings. From Nepo's perspective there wasn't nearly enough water here, but Saku was quite pleased with the amount of green. And unlike Basin he had no issues with the airship being, well, airborne.

    Reaching the clearing Nepo suddenly jumped off of Basin's shoulder and dived towards the fountain, the hippocamp eagerly swimming through the water while releasing happy sounds reminiscent of a whale. Saku remained on Basin's other shoulder, looking back at the trees which gave way to the paved clearing. Lily giggled as she saw how happy Nepo was to have a source of water to swim in, but then turned her focus to the people who'd already reached the clearing before the four of them. "Hmmm..." She'd never met Dagda, so she didn't actually know who the man in charge was here. Slowly walking towards the fountain she looked around at everyone else, studying their faces with large green eyes. Who should she approach first?

    Basin remained at the edge of the clearing, zirs large stone feet resting squarely atop the pavement. The tables that were spread out made it difficult for zir to advance without knocking something over, and ze wasn't the kind of person to get in the middle of things anyway. Instead ze studied everyone from a distance, zirs single large blue glowing eye going from face to face. Basin wasn't exactly the best at figuring out different faces among fleshlings: earth elementals were so fundamentally different that whether someone had a big nose or not rarely register. For the moment ze relied on more reliable signs, such as skin, hair and eye colour, or differences in stature. There was one big person, one smaller person with vibrant red hair, a person with pale hair, a person with wings, and a person with dark skin. They probably found each other very different even when Basin had to resort to the most basic of traits to tell them apart. How many more would arrive before the meeting would begin?

    Lily meanwhile spotted someone who drew her interest. Or at the very least, was carrying something interesting. Of course she wanted to get to know everyone here but this person in question was reading a book even as he walked into the clearing and joined the rest of the club. The dryad had learned how to read but she still wasn't well-read. As such she instantly locked onto the tall, dark man holding a book, walking over to him until she was standing right in front of him. Of course the fact that there was more than a foot of difference in height meant that Lily had to crane her neck to look at his face. In fact she might even still be hidden behind his book as she piped up with her usual cheerful tone of voice.

    "Hello there! What are you reading?" Lily had never been very subtle.
