    You look around the celebration you are having for your command staff, and are immediately off-put by the fact that BlackBird and Laelith are standing off alone from the rest of the group. You make your way over to Blackbird "I am horribly inconsiderate" you begin "I seem to have forgotten to congratulate you on your wedding BlackBird. How are you enjoying life as a married man thus far?"

    The Orc of the Old Clans laughs before responding "It is not a problem Commander, and thank you for your help in finding me my firstwife. She is a good wife, and will bear me a child soon, hopefully a son. Though I do hope my secondwife or thirdwife will have more, practical, skills than this one; she can scarcely cook, or clean..." BlackBird seems to find that particularly funny, strangely he has no drink to speak of that would explain his finding that fact so incredibly funny. "How can I help you though Commander?" he finally struggles out.

    "Care for a drink?" you ask nonchalantly, motioning for BlackBird to follow you "And I was merely curious as to how you are adapting to life in my maniple."

    BlackBird smirks, and replies "It is enjoyable, the safe times are far longer than those with meaning, but I am enjoying having comrades again. And is it wise for our whole band to be drunk at once? What would happen if enemies were to fall on us then?"
    >> Maximus 11/03/10(Wed)21:21 No.12671003

    Hey, I worded it a little better by only mentioning enemy armies. At first I was going to say the enemy period but then I thought to myself "Hmm. Assassins/spies.". Regardless, I know what you mean, heh.
    >> Pax !uGYNBMPzOs 11/03/10(Wed)21:34 No.12671151
    Now you feel that it is your turn to laugh "We are in the heart of the Empire friend, our band is the entirety of the Degnarian Legion... we can afford more than one night of drunkenness as a group, at the least I would hope." you reply as you walk up to the bar, this one very large, and without a tender. In victory you felt you could afford the extra for that luxury. "What would you like to drink then?" you add, pouring yourself a glass of dwarven whiskey, you find that you have acquired quite a tongue for the drink, even though it isnt your mystery brew.

    Blackbird sniffs the lip of the bottle in your hand before responding "What your drinking, then."

    "So you truly feel that battle is the only time that matters in life then?" you ask, genuinely curious.

    "Of course not, I'm no barbarian" BlackBird replies "But combat is the only time one can test his mettle, and thusly his worth" he pauses to take a sip of the drinnk you just finished pouring for him "And what intelligent creature could bear to live on not knowing whether or not he is worthy of his life?"
    >> Maximus 11/03/10(Wed)21:37 No.12671195
    "But is a persons worth entirely determined by his mettle in combat? A smith may be horrible at combat but he could create weapons that slice through the heaviest armour when used by warriors like yourself. Is his life less worthy simply because he cannot use that weapon himself?"

However we are soldiers and we will be able to once again test our mettle soon enough. Until then" you reply, raiding your glass "To friends, to victory and to the Empire!" all in the room raise their glasses as well, draining them as one. In the confusion at the bar that ensues you are pushed away from BlackBird, who you see enthralled in a conversation with... Degrian???

    I'm not sure we ought to do that. I doubt we'll be able to use them to much effect in the plains. And until we hit a fortress I doubt they'd be of much use.

    And the praetorian we spoke to seemed to indicate it would be a lot of our territory that would be taken. Meaning we likely don't want to punch holes into our own cities since that'll make holding them again a lot more painful and cause damage to our holdings. Although I could be wrong.

    As the group evens back out to its original groups, you make your way over to Laelith, who is currently nursing a glass of wine, and looking quite uncomfortable; downright refusing to look in Cornelius direction, at the mirror behind the bar, and now that you are close, you notice that she is averting your left arm. "Ah, Commander, how long do you expect me to stay here?"

    Comfort her, and assure her that there are no hard feelings. Hold up our left arm and smile, and tell her that we don't hold it against her at all, and that she has earned our trust. Try to lead her over to Kyria and Jayne, putting an arm around her and physically herding her if required.

    "Well, since your part of my retinue now, until I see you enjoying yourself with the captains you'll be working with." You reply as warmly as you can without sounding like you'll give on the issue.

    "How can I enjoy myself when they all most likely still count me as a foe. I doubt that they are all as forgiving as you/" Laelith replies, taking another sip of her wine.

    "Well, i can think of two of my captains who I can guarantee have already forgiven you. One of them I dont think is capable of holding a grudge" you reply, taking her arm and leading her over to Jayne and Kyria "and the other wasnt on particularly good terms with the man who stole my latest idea for a dashing scar when you fought us, so I doubt she's horribly angry with you." you finish, holding up your burn-scarred left arm. Laeliths mouth gapes at your distortion of time and history, and she barely manages to collect her face by the time you reach the pair in question.

    "As long as she doesnt out-dance me." Kyria responds cheerily, you barely repress a laugh, no small feat after having seen Kyria dance.

    "As long as she doesnt keep stealing you away from the rest of us I think I could do that." Jayne replies, mischif in her eyes. Laelith balks, but you leave her with the pair and make your way over to the table Uurist, Sansa and Buckmoore are drinking at. Its time to start REALLY enjoying the night.

    The next morning starts late... very late. You are one of the first out of bed still. After eating, cleaning yourself, and dodging Sansa's offer of a glass of her hangover cure; which Laelith inexplicably accepts when she emerges from the bathhouse connected to the command staffs barracks, you decide its time to get to work.

    The first thing you do is saddle Spite, picking over the soldiers who didnt make it back to their bunks will be good training for him. After that you collect the two chests, and strap them to your Uursans saddle, the beast is doing an admirable job of waiting, but you can tell that he's getting impatient. Riding Spite through the city proves to be an excellent training exercise for the uursan, as you have to subtly direct it away from more than a few nobles who seem to think the fact that they ride horses to your uursan makes them better than both of you. The trip to the Imperial Treasury is a short one, netting you 40000 dragoons in personal funds, and making you wonder whether you missed a few of Khalless' chests.

    As you make your way to the Anvil district you find yourself faced with more choices than you wish, as barding is a common service offered by blacksmiths. How much are you willing to spend, what metal do you want used, and how fast do you want the barding, its appearance. the possibilities baffle you as you look down the hill into the heart of the main smithing district in town.

    from what she told you, it depends on the mount and if it is properly trained and conditioned for what you give it, they are incredibly durable creatures and with proper training they can bear almost anything.

    Steel, reliable, cheap, the bare minimum.

    Meteorite: stronger than steel, and MUCH more resistant to heat, but heavier and not cheap to use do to the heats it needs to be heated to.

    Mithia: slightly weaker than meteorite, lighter and more malleable. Its main advantage is that lightness, so it int much good for barding on an Uursan the size of spite, the fact that elfs prefer to work with it more than any other race makes it hard to get in the Empire

    Adamantium: The strongest, heaviest natural ore. Intensely rare, but impervious to rust, corrosion, and most other forms of wear. expensive as hell though.

    Kextraeita (Dwarven Steel): the strongest material known to the world. Only Dwarves know how to make it, and they are loathe to share its secrets, they almost revere the substance, but it is nigh impervious to any sort of damage, doesnt weigh much more than Mithia, and can be made to cover more area with ease.

    so, what kind of barding are you looking for then, and how high end do you want to go?

    Finding a smith that will work steel is easy, but you can only five that are willing to tackle barding Spite. One has a well kept, tidy shop, and seems flooded with work, and more interested in the money from a job as large as yours.

    the second has a messy, small shop and is very eager to take on the challenge of your large mount

    the third isnt very busy, but claims to do excellent barding.

    the last two are across the street from each other, and when one claimed he could bard anything the other said he was full of shit, and could do a much better job

    "No, you cant." he replies promptly, writing down measurements as he goes.

    After a few more minutes of silent work you pipe up again "Something seemed to be on your mind before, might I inquire as to what it is?"

    The smith writes down a final measurement and steps away from Spite "I was wondering if you purchased this uursan from house Garlian, theyre the only local house I know of that has the breeding stock for such a large creature." he responds.

    "I contract almost exclusively with House Garlian, apprenticed with their house smiths in fact. Its not very often one gets to work with such a beautiful creature as this, with them going 'out of style' with most of the Noble Houses.

    The best deal you can find is 500 dragoons per item, set or not. Once the item is identified, you would need to pay extra to be told how to work it... but you suspect once you have a positive name and use the archives could yield some form of instructions.

    The night before the trial you set yourself up in the courtyard, brown glove on your hand. Everything seems easier wearing it, you drive a full dozen spikes up from the ground, and return them without breaking a sweat; your previous best was a mere 6 over the course of a few hours. You eventually tire of stone spears, and decide to try something else. Once again you try to pull the earth apart, and after a few minutes of struggling, you hear a deep rumble, and a loud crack... looking up you see a deep gap in the earth a few feet in front of you, 3 feet long and 1 across... but its progress. After a few more attempts at opening and closing these gaps, you decide to try the mystery gloves... but which one to start with?

    You decide to try the white glove first, unsure of what will happen you remove your training glove, close your eyes, and slide on the white glove.

At the end of 'there' you can feel your consciousness being pulled towards the spot you are focusing on, pulling your senses even further out of allignment.

    "well, if you insist I'll let you try it on. but could you at least sit down... and don't scream please?" you reply, putting a hand on her shoulder as you sit down, pulling her with you.

    Sitting cross-legged across from you Jayne looks apprehensive now, but still determined to try the glove on. "Protective of your ladies clothing, aren't you?" Jayne asks playfully as you situate yourself across from her. Jayne slides the glove onto her right hand, and instantly gasps, loudly, fear suddenly filling her eyes.

    Take her hands and talk to her, tell her we're here and don't panic.

    hows about NO?

    who knows what she's seeing?

    she could be flipping the fuck out silently in her head and we wouldnt know it.

    Oh come on, we didn't go insane from a few seconds of exposure. We told her it was dangerous and she's a big girl. You can obviously hear the "real world" while looking into the mists. It should be fine.

    did you forget the snickering we heard earlier?

    what if whatever was fucking with us is ripping her sanity apart right now?

    do you really wanna risk killing or making jayne a vegetable?

    be on the safe side

    Taking hold of Jaynes hands you calmly say "Jayne, I'm right here, directly in front of you. If you speak clearly and calmly, and avoid any word that could be considered a command, nothing bad should happen." (I hope) you add to yourself.

    "Wh-What is happening?" Jayne asks, her voice trembling.

    "I think you are looking into the Arcane Mists. That glove is a training aid for mages, I found that one, a Purple one that I dont know the use of, and one for each of the major schools of elementalism in one of Khalless' chests. Anything you do right now could have... strange, results." you reply.

    Jaynes voice levels out "It has a certain... serene beauty to it once you acclimate to it." Jayne pauses for a moment, no doubt enjoying the show her words are creating... suddenly she starts shaking again, taking the massive breath that would come before a scream, and you can feel her body temperature fluctuating and pulsing wildly through her hands.

    >act quickly...

    Calm down Jayne. The arcane is neutral and should yield to the power of the user. Just keep cool and don't panic.

    "Jayne, whatever you do, dont scream." you say rapidly, trying to move your right hand to her shoulder or mouth, but find it locked in a vise-like grip. At least she isnt screaming, but her eyes are wide in fear "From what I understand, the Mists have no will of their own, they exist to obey, an unclear command, or an abundance of emotion could be taken as any command." you continue, scraping your mind for more information to keep her mind busy with; you try to pull the glove off of her hand, but her grip has your hand at too great a disadvantage. "Jayne, I'm going to take the glove off now, I need you to loosen your grip." you explain calmly.

    Jaynes grip holds just as tight "Dont leave me." she pleads, frightened.

    "Of course not" you reply, at that her grip loosens enough for you to yank the glove off, pulling her towards you. Before you are aware of what is happening, Jaynes arms are locked around your shoulders, her body frigid from whatever command she gave.

    Well what? Obviously we hold her close until she calms down, and if she can't move we carry her to her room.

    Also, we should most likely tell her "I told you so" with a smile.

    "I did try to warn you." you say teasingly, returning the hug, Slowly you can feel her body heat returning to her.

    "You actually stayed standing with that glove on? It felt like my mind was locked in my body, and I couldn't control anything but my lips... I, I could feel everything in the courtyard, when I was talking about how beautiful it was... and there was a stiff breeze and, then..." Jayne struggles to describe her experience, but cant seem to find the words.

    "I wouldn't be able to describe what happened to me either." you reply as her body stops shivering, although the cold sweat that had covered her body during her... experience now causing more shivering than what happened to her; you have always been told that you throw off a lot of body heat.

    "Wh... what did the other glove you were wearing do?" Jayne asks, shifting her body in your arms.

    you focus a bit, and raise a spike out of the earth behind you, and directly in her line of sight. Jayne gasps for a response "Yes, I know. I have a feeling that things are going to get very strange in the world before long. Now lets get you back to your bed, its freezing out here." You offer kindly.

    Jayne scoffs, rising "Says the man who has been sitting out here for gods know how long topless and motionless." apparently feeling a bit more herself now. "And I dont think I'll be able to sleep for a good long while after what you just showed me." she rel=plies while shaking out her limbs.

    "I have another glove that I dont know the use for, if you want to try that one as well.." You reply jokingly, rising to your feet, thinking that you know where this is going.

    "You have a strange sense of humor Justinian" Jayne replies, stopping to look at you again "Care for a spar? Nothing better for getting to sleep than some physical exertion."

    Unless you have significantly more on under that bathrobe than I think, you would be risking a different kind of pride than you are normally accustomed to when sparring.

    "Wouldn't sparing in a robe be a bit... cumbersome? And I don't think you want to loose two sorts of pride simply to burn off all the adrenaline you just built up so that you can sleep." you reply, cocking an eyebrow.

    Sansa replies by shrugging off her robe, showing what are most likely her underclothes for when she is wearing armor, enough to protect the barest scraps of her decency, but its there nonetheless (>think sports bra/compression shorts made of softish leather) "Disappointed Justinian?" Jayne asks dropping into a fighters stance. This is going to be fun...

    Intentionally. We don't have any idea what girl we are going for right now. I think cuddling with her after a near death experience was walking the line already. Logic dictates that getting laid was a few well-placed lines away.
