Dawn Rises

It would take no less than three days, and three long nights of travel. The Chrafei were ever present, high above in the day, and near at hand at night, where the glow of their feathers lit the way for the travelers who followed the path fate lay before them.

It is dawn of the fourth day, and you have all arrived at the wasted strip. A long and grueling travel by horse over the mainland, but those had to be abandoned on the second day, as you took a small airship out across the open air to Isla Garnach, where the strip resides. Below you is the breath, the pink and purple misty clouds, colored by the light of dawn into orange and yellow mists and strips. It is a beautiful thing, the breath, called so because it is believed to have been the breath of the gods that raised the skylands above the wasted world.

The sun rises, and reveals to you the shore of the island, covered in broken and bleeding bodies and corpses. There are thousands upon thousands of soldiers, all dead, or dying. The bodies lead up the strip towards a narrow pass, where a few hundred warriors still fight against a single man.

Tolend Dathar.

Truly if the gods can be reborn as human, then he is a god of battle. Though his armor is bloodied, rent, his weapon and shield broken in multiple places, still does he stand. A bastion for the last hope of Asylia, the final barricade against evil. When all others have failed and fallen, he yet stands to protect the princess.

And behind him, overwhelming the dawns own light, is the princess herself, beautiful as life, and just as fragile. Even from the distance can her eyes be made out, a light to cut through darkness down in the very soul of the people.

The captain of the ship you have comandeered has seen the corpses, and he begins barking orders to his men. He intends to turn away, to abandon the princess and her guardian.

CĂ©cilia was a little starved for a nice shower as they rode and eventually flew in the direction they were heading in. She looked over the railing of the airship and down at the clouds below them. Such a marvel of technology this was, as a kid she had seen ships like these flying over the kingdom. They were like massive metal birds of the sky and she always wanted to see the world from above...

It was as beautiful as she had thought, pink and purple misty clouds...Along with the light of dawn slipping through it...It was a nice sight, however as they passed the clouds and arriving above the shore that's where her smile faded. Thousands of soldiers, dead or bleeding out...There stood a single mas using a very narrow entrance for a stretigic position. If she remembered what her parents taught her, this maneuver was called a bottleneck, to funnel the enemy numbers throw a narrow space. Very useful when you face more enemies, using more well trained troops to plug the hole and dealing more damage to the enemy. And here one man seemed to hold his ground, but he looked like he has perhaps minutes of life left. There behind him, the figure of the princess! Heavens above she still lived!

All they had to do was land, but soon she heard the captain of their ship yelling orders to...abandon the princess!? She would have found a way to get off the ship however she saw no means to safely get down without falling from the sky and turning into a red stain on the ground. She ran to the captains cabin while calling out for the others. "Everyone! Please assist me! Head to the captains cabin! We have to speak some sense into him!" She called out before looking to the captains cabin and calling out to the captain.

"Please sir! Please land the ship! The princess needs our help! On my name of the Naudé family it is our duty to the late king to save the princess! I humbly ask with all my heart that you let us off. You can leave after we get off the ship. But please! Land the ship!"

The sheer size of the queens battleships in the western skies, couldn't be unnoticed - even by somebody as dense as Aryun. It is then, the boy noticed the chimera still hovering there, as if to show maximum disrespect after insulting him a 'wandering lady'. Though he was still standing there pointing the wooden stick to the east, his attention on the chimeras was redirected at the baron:

"That's east, child. West is the other way. In any case, Image
"O..Oo...Obviously this is the east!"
the boy is right. We must not delay. My apologies, Lady Cecilia, but you will have to carry the child with you.
" Aryun was astounded and embarassed about his disorientation at the same time. Astounded by the amount of insults, pointed towards him at the same time: first the chimara, showing maximum disrespect and now some old noble geezer, calling him a 'child'. Unforgivable: "O..Oo...Obviously this is the east - i just wanted to test the orientation sense of my future travel companions" - he changed the direction of the wooden stick to south. "Still i would prefer to go with Ashley" - it seemed nobody cared: the baron offered Cé-ci-li-a Na-u-dé the horse of his guardian and moved on.

"We may have an easy enough time of it in the plains, but keep a sharp eye and don't spread out, not all earth is as solid as it may appear" - Ashley wasn't even there anymore, riding ahead. What should the boy do? - He jumped on the horse, sitting back to back with the noble woman, puffing his cheeks angrily.

It was a long journey - two days by horse. After two days, they had to leave their horses behind. Especially Ashley made quite a drama about leaving his behind. It seemed he was really picky and he truly believed, he could talk to a horse - but the thing surprised Aryun even more, was that the horse seemed to understand and reply: "No way.." - the boy cleared his eyes. Though, his surprised expression changed into an expression of awe and excitement upon seeing a flying ship. It seemed his companions were about to get on the ship: "Awesome!"

Upon the ship lifting off, a sight opened before the boy - he Image

never saw before. Giant land masses were floating in the skies, surrounded by mystical arrangements of differently coloured clouds. "What kind of sorcery is this? -This is beautiful!" - Aryun leaned forward way too much, nearly falling out of the ship a few times. Flying sure was freeing, letting Aryun feel at ease as though he was light like a feather. It took a while for the boy to live out his excitement - restlessly running around the ship, looking at the surroundings from different areas. If one would mark all places the boy had been on at the ship - the whole ship would be marked three times. After some time, Aryun seemed to get a bit more accustomed to traveling in the skies, finally getting quite. All the excitement and running around drained his energy very fast. After looking for a quite corner, he dropped on the floor, snoring slightly. He was awakened few hours later by Sis Nada screaming around: "Everyone! Please assist me! Head to the captains cabin! We have to speak some sense into him". He raised himself, still sleepy - as he saw Sis Nada running to the captains cabin: "Are we already there? Wozzup Sis Nada - you need to land the ship? " Aryun looked at the island they were howering over. The sight of dead and injured soldiers lying around didn't faze him. Seeing a single soldier fighting off the masses however, impressed the boy. Aditionally he seemed to be a knight of the late king - the boys eyes sparkled: " Decided! - We're landing! Ladies and Gentlemen, please hold onto something!" - a smile appeared on Aryuns face, as he shot one of the ships engines with an ice splitter. This caused the ship to incline towards the isle, falling right at the battlefield. With some luck the crashing would squash the masses of dark clothed soldiers. Nearing the ground the boy jumped from the ship, rushing off towards the knight.

The plains had been kind enough to them, Ashley was pleased with their progress. When it had become clearthey would need to take an airship for the last leg of the journey they had shifted course and made their way to more civilized territories.

Ashley had removed everything he could shoulder and made sure the rest was secured. "Right, you know the drill." He patted he animal softly, "If I'm not back in three days head on home. Don't go getting yourself into any trouble." The horse reared its head back with a huff. The beast wouldn't be boarded in a stable, it would keep itself out of trouble in the surrounding country and return to Ashley's home if the man didn't return in a timely manner.

Once they boarded Ashley found himself a comfortable spot as far from the rails as he could and settled in. It wasn't so much a fear of hights as an unease about the contraption itself. Ashley had never thought much of airships. It was a relief when they had finally made the isle, though the scene that awaited dulled the sence of relief quickly.

The captain was preparing to come about, and in all regards Ashley could hardly blame the man. CĂšcilia pleaded for the man to land, at least to let them off.

"Let down the cargo line captain. You needn't even land." Was what Ashley was about to say when the sound of an engine clattering broke through the air. Ashley turned and to his horror saw that Aryun had apparently taken it upon himself to "land" the ship by shooting an ice shard into one of the engines.

"What the hell are you doing?" Ashley yelled as the ship lurched. "We're already tempting fate on this contraption and you have to go and start breaking things while were FLYING IN THE AIR."

At this point self preservation took over, both Ashley Clark Gable and Tom Catti prefered their chances against all the armies in the world over a crashing air ship. He made his was quickly towards the rail, reeling as he leaned over unecpectedly. Seeing the cargo crane he hurried over and kicked the crack latch open, letting the line fall loose in the wind. He swung one leg over the rail. "Sweet dirt, I'm coming back to you." Ashley mumbled before grabbing hold of the line and swinging his leg over. "This one goes down!" He shouted towards CĂšcilia and Niccolo. Then he was gone, letting the line carry him swiftly toward the ground as the ship followed.

He felt more comfortable holding that rope falling quickly towards the earth than he ever had on the airship. He rolled swiftly when his feet touched the ground, it was certainly not the first time he had used a rope in such a manner, though repelling from towers and fortress walls was somewhat less harrowing. As he came back up to his feet a blade was already drawn and at the ready.

After shooting one of the engines, Aryun put one foot on the rails - trying to adjust the distance. With one engine still running, the ship was falling too slow for his taste. But at least it was landing at all and like this, there was time to jump before the crash. Aryun pointed out the target location aiming with his thumb, as he heard some panicking voice coming from behind.

"What the hell are you doing? We're already tempting fate on this contraption and you have to go and start breaking things while were FLYING IN THE AIR." - Ashley desperately sprinted towards the cargo crane.

"Why, landing obviously... " - Aryun scratched his head - he couldn't understand the commotion. It was a long moment of thought, before the boy could grasp the situation. He narrowed his eyes, putting on a wide evil smile: "Do i smell fear, horse whisperer? Stay here, would you! Go down with the ship, facing the wind standing on the front line rails - like a real captain! Arrr... " But Ashley already fled the sinking ship via the rope of the cargo crane. It was a pretty amusing sight, how the ranger made his way down faster than the ship itself. Seeing Ashley rolling around upon landing, Aryun shouted from above while standing on the rails, preparing to jump: "Arr...Prepare yourselves, landrats! Horse whisperer you distract them since you're already down, while i make my way to the knight - can't have a real hero fall here! HeHeHe... "

"Decided! - We're landing! Ladies and Gentlemen, please hold onto something!"

CĂ©cilia hear Aryun's voice and before she could react, suddenly the sound of an engine being blow up rung in her ears. She suddenly tripped and landed on the floor before the trajectory of the ship began to make her fall to the bow of the ship. She quickly reacted and grabbed a nearby railing.

"What the hell are you doing? We're already tempting fate on this contraption and you have to go and start breaking things while were FLYING IN THE AIR."[/color] Was what Ashley shouted as they were on a crash landing. She would have possibly said something along those lines, but right now she was focused on trying not to fall down.

[font=myriad]"Oh Gods above...Mom...Dad...please watch over me on this journey to redeem our family name and avenge our king...for our teammate might kill us all by mistake!"
CĂ©cilia spoke to herself as she carefully made her way to the side of the ship and was prepared to jump off now. Not the best way to enter the battlefield bit it was certainly a flashy way.

She did say she needed help, but when she meant help to land the ship she did not mean to get help to crash land the ship!

Baron Niccolo had been arguing with the captain, trying to convince him to abandon his foolishness and actually land the ship when Aryun had blown out one of the engines. Unfortunately the explosion had rocked the ship and sent the Baron crashing down to the main deck.

He was disoriented and began clumsily making his way around, seeking a safe way off the ship, even as the rest of the crew and the captain ran about in panic and fear. He managed to spot cecilia and rush over to her as she prepared to leap off the ship. "you seem better prepared at this so, just tell me when would be best." He said, his voice only slightly shaken in spite of the event.
