Metakirb

Tundral wastes

Head north from the Castle Town of Linness and you'll reach the ocean, continue north and eventually you'll reach these frozen wastelands.

At the southern edge a boat lands, A woman in a mask walks off the boat, seemingly unphased by the extreme cold.
Who

Elyea has no such resistance to the cold but soldiers on none the less, still helping Ary walk if need be.
Metakirb

Ary still needs the help, though it does earn Elyea a glare from the woman.

Quit helping her. She needs to get stronger, babying her won't do it.
Who

Elyea glares right back.

"She's hurt! Shut up."
Metakirb

You keep babying her and I'll crack more of her ribs.
Who

Elyea's eyes narrow at her.

"Don't you dare even touch her."
Metakirb

Or what? I intend to make her stronger. You're holding her back.
Who

Elyea just glares, holding back the urge to turn her in to a ferret or something.
Metakirb

Let go of her.

Elyea may notice she has a crystal, like the one sodan broke to cause an Antimagic field, in her hand.
Who

Noticing the crystal she reluctantly lets go. Not taking her eyes off that woman for one second, doesn't trust her.
Metakirb

Ary stumbles a little, but manages to start walking. They'll still be walking when it starts getting dark, and the woman seems to have no intention of stopping to let them rest.
Who

Elyea doesn't mind, quietly muttering some truespeech to keep her and Ary going.
Metakirb

Which gets her another glare from the woman, she doesn't say anything this time though. Shortly before Dawn a small village comes into sight.
Who

Elyea's still fresh as a daisy due to the spell, Ary should be too.
Metakirb

Other than her cracked ribs. They're led to a house near the back o the village, The woman shakes the snow off her coat and heads inside.
Who

Elyea follows, looking around once their inside.
Obscurejones


A helmeted man is sharpening his ax with a stone.
Who are they?
Metakirb

The blue haired girl's the one I told you about. The other's her friend who refused to leave her.

The hosue is fairly warm inside, a few chairs scattered about and possibly a fire going at the back of the room, there're also some stairs, leading up to what's probably a bunch of bedrooms.
Obscurejones

... So why not just knock out the friend?  She looks like she weighs less than scrap of paper.
Who

"I could kick your ass."

Language! What would her mother say?
Metakirb

She could be usefull. Speaking of usefull, make yourself useful and prepare another bed for her.
Obscurejones

He gets to his feet, standing about a foot taller than Elyea and Ary.
Alright.
He heads upstairs, bringing his ax along.
Metakirb

What exactly did you bring us here for?

You're here for training. Your friend's here because she wouldn't go home.
Obscurejones

After a few moments he returns.
Right, beds are made.  Sure you don't want me throw the little one out?
Who

Elyea glares.

"Call me that again, I dare you."
Metakirb

She nods.

She managed the walk, though with some magic. Show her friend to her room. Ary, you're sharing with him, since you're training together from now on.
Obscurejones

He gestures for the girls to follow him.
Metakirb

Ary follows, still clutching her side.
Who

Elyea follows her and she's going to help her walk whether she likes it or not!
Obscurejones

He first shows Ary to the room they'll be sharing.
Get some rest.  You'll need it.
That done he close the door on their room rather deliberately cutting Elyea off from Ary.
Metakirb

Ary makes her way to the bed and lies down, feeling too cold to not sleep fully clothed.
Who

Elyea's not impressed.

"I know you're up to something."
Obscurejones

He tilts his head slightly.
I'm up to nothing.  ... Well I suppose I'm on the second floor so I am up.  Relatively speaking.  And I have a purpose... Alright I am up to something but only coincidentally.  Now shoo.  Blue needs her sleep, little one.
Who

She's older than Ary! Elyea's had enough, focusing her effort she lets out a few laboured syllables of truespeech and that fella's axe should start to corrode and rust real quick.
Obscurejones

It doesn't.  She can't see his face but it's a smirk so thick you can hear it.
Go to your room little girl.
Who

"What?! How is that even?!"

She acquiesces heading to her designated room with much grumbling.
Obscurejones

He laughs and heads back downstairs.  Looks round for his sister.
Metakirb

She's by the fire, sitting and staring into it.
Obscurejones

He sits in front of it, on her left.
So.  Why're they here again?
Metakirb

Sodan found my mistake. It's only a matter of time before he realises that there's armor to go with it. So we need Aryna and you strong enough to stop him.
Obscurejones

But she's a god isn't she?  What can we do to strengthen a god?
Metakirb

If she was that good then she wouldn't be here with broken ribs. She isn't using her power, she wants to reach her natural limits before moving to a gifted power.
Obscurejones

... That's infantile.  We're training her to think, then?
Cocky little bastard isn't he?
Metakirb

Oh? I think it's admirable. She wants to reach her full potential with her own power. Using another's power is like using a crutch.
Obscurejones

But it is her own power.  It's not like someone's propping her up.  It's inherited but so is anyone else's natural aptitudes.
Metakirb

She shrugs.

You need sleep too you know.
Obscurejones

He sighs and heads upstairs.  Slips into his and Ary's room as quietly as he can, setting his ax by his bed.  Looks at Ary's bed.
Idiot.
With a quiet laugh he settles in for sleep.
Metakirb

The three of them will be woken at dawn, Ary gets up, shivering, still clutching her side.
Who

Elyea looks about for who woke her, grumbling about it being far too early.
Metakirb

It's the masked woman, Elyea'll find a thick fur coat lying by her bed.
Who

"Who are you?"

Elyea quickly gets out of bed, eyeing the fur coat suspiciously.
Metakirb

Somebody Ary once knew. I don't expect you to trust me. But I'm trying to keep your friend alive.
Who

"If you know her, you'll know she doesn't need any help."
Metakirb

I know what's coming. I made the sword, I made the armor that goes with it. If Sodan finds the rest of the armor then Ary does indeed need help.
Who

"What's so special about the sword?"
Metakirb

It's forged with the pure hatred of an abandoned goddess. It's corrupting and devastatingly powerfull.
Who

Well that shut her up.

"Oh...is there anything I can do to help?"
Metakirb

Don't hold your friend back.
Obscurejones

The masked man runs outside, forgoing a coat.  Swings his ax expectantly.
Metakirb

Ary looks for a coat and doesn't find one, then heads after him, shivering.
Obscurejones

He nods his head to her.
So, what do you use as a weapon?
Metakirb

The sword that Miss Rhias made for me.

She draws it slowly, he may notice it looks unfinished.
Obscurejones

He frowns and walks over to get a closer look at it.
That's no good.  I mean it's fine if you want to use it when you're on your own but you might want something a little sturdier while we're training.
Metakirb

It's lasted me well for years.
Obscurejones

I'm sure it has.  But I doubt you've been sparring with someone as focused on breaking things as I am.  Just let me run and get you a practice sword for today.
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Obscurejones

He sighs and shrugs his shoulders before swinging his ax up and at the blade of her sword.
Metakirb

Normally Ary'd try and block it and counterattack, but two broken ribs and being incredibly cold aren't doing her any favours, she tries to block but misses completely.
Obscurejones

His ax slams into the blade of her sword with inhuman force.
-----------
Al, Birdie, and Nerin land at the coast.  Birdie won the race.
Who

Birdie crows in victory stalking forward still on the hunt for Elyea.
Metakirb

It's knocked clean out of her grip, before it hit's anything mask woman grabs it.

Good, I wanted her working on her unarmed skills.
Obscurejones

He grins beneath his mask and swings his ax at Ary's head.
-----
Al follows the stalking Jabberwock.
Metakirb

Ary stumbles back and falls into the snow.

Try not to kill her.

Nerin follows Al.
Obscurejones

He shrugs and whips a booted kick at Ary's head.
Metakirb

She's kicked in the head.
Who

I assume eventually they'll reach where ever it is Elyea is located, takes a while though a believe.
Obscurejones

Does Ary stay conscious?
-------
When they do Al begins stalking through the village looking for Ary.
Metakirb

She stays conscious, rolling away and pulling herself to her feet.

Al may see the fight in progress.
Obscurejones

He throws out a hand of force that throws the masked man into the nearest wall.  There's a struggle but the man stays pinned.
Metakirb

Huh?

Masked woman sighs and approaches Al.
Obscurejones

Ary, are you here of your own free will?
Metakirb

A word, Al?
Who

Birdie charges forward as he spies Elyea. They sort of meet in the middle with Elyea wrapping her arms round his long neck.
Obscurejones

Al throws a blast of divine force at the masked woman.
Metakirb

She makes a dismissive gesture and redirects it. She walks up to him, lifting her mask slightly so only he'll be able to see the familiar face underneath.

She's just training
Obscurejones

He laughs and pulls the masked young man off the wall.
... Fine.  Just let her write home every few days, okay?
Who

Elyea walks over to the two of them, riding on Birdie.
Metakirb

She nods.
Obscurejones

Elyea, will you be sticking around here?
He starts bouncing the masked man off the ground.
Who

She nods.

"As long as Ary's here."
Obscurejones

Groovy.  I'll let your mom know.
He tosses the masked man into the stratosphere.
Catch.  Or scrape the meat pancake off the dirt.  Nerin, take us home.
Metakirb

Nerin nods and ports Al and herself back.

Masked woman catches maked man.
Obscurejones

He whirls around looking for Al to rips his head off.  A few of the tattoos on his arms flush deep red.
Where is he?!?
Metakirb

Gone, get back to training.
Obscurejones

He whirls and charges Ary then, swinging his ax wildly.
Metakirb

She throws some snow at his mask, hoping it'll still obscure his vision.
Obscurejones

He stops and shakes his head, trying to throw off the snow.
Metakirb

It gives Ary the opportunity to close in and throw a punch at his Gut.
Obscurejones

He doubles over and then drops to his knees swinging his arms in a wide arc trying to catch her.
Metakirb

She's caught, not having moved away, broken ribs and all.
