BANG! A loud bang is heard at the door. followed by muffled cursing. BANG. More muffled cursing. After the 3rd BANG there is no cursing just a revving sound. Suddenly the air is filled with wood splinters and bullets. An oval shaped outline is made with the bullets and with a Final BANG The green eyed mobile turret rolls in and over to the closest electrical outlet where he plugs in.

"Well you got your self into a real jam this time Rick!" His sleek white body would be imposable to spot if not for the bright green iris. "HA! But nothing you can't handle, just place one wheel in front of the other two and have them all accelerate at the same time and speed and you'll get up this mountain in no time at all!" His voice would cut though the sound of the storm perfectly clear from a great distance. "Snow or no snow, Temple building here..." Rick's loud self motivational speech was cut short by him running into a snowdrift. And then there was quite on the mountain top. Quite except for the winds that the snow around it. And the steadily louder growing sound of machine guns cutting a way out for rick. With a triumphant "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" the mobile turret continued on his way.

"I see you." The robotic turret falters in its progress for a split second. "Gah, I have got to get that fixed! Stupid preprogrammed greetings. Hey a monster! If i show up with that things pelt I would look even better! Ooor I could give it to any ladies I might meet..." The Turret kicks it's self into turbo and speeds after the wolf, who by the time Rick had finished speaking had moved out of his sensor's range. It was a good thing he was an expert tracker.

Still following the monster's tracks, Rick rolled forward. As he rolled he continued to spout more insults at the monster that had evaded him for so long, "Insults" being questionable for he had used up all the good ones and had to start making up new ones which probably sounded more silly then insulting. "It's pointless you adopted, water gargling, grass eating, kilter grated, moo muffin! Why don't you just give up already!" he shouted into the virtual wall of snow. His loud voice caused some snow to tumble around him but hardly slowed him. Soon though he was able to detect forms of organic life ahead of him. An involuntary "There you are." was sounded as he rolled over to them. He starts to fake coughing and then says "Uhh I mean hello there, the names Rick! You wouldn't have happened to see a monster pass though here, would you?"

"I just don't fancy having it happen again, however likely it is. And what the hell is a tetchy?" he shot back at Cináed, "And if I'm in danger of falling off, I'll just grab onto you. Either we'll both go down or you'll save me. Isn't that a wonderful prospect?"

He was only joking. Well, mostly joking, at least. Sahlie followed after the other teen, walking in the cleared path. He didn't fancy any other accidents; it was better to be safe than sorry.

A scowl came across the trickster's face as he caught sight of the landslide. "Well, that's just great. How long is this detour gonna take?" he asked Anaiya, annoyed that it would take even longer to climb the mountain.

All the while, Casren's phone rang, furthering Sahlie's bad mood. He opened his mouth to snap at the other male, but caught himself and took a few deep breaths. "How does your phone even work up here, and who could possibly be calling."

Over the blizzard and his annoyance, he failed to notice or hear Rick.

Entry 133. Fuck detours.

"Signal in a snowstorm?" Cináed raised an eyebrow at Casren, "I need to swap to your provider."

Anaiya shook her head, "We've no choice but to press on. Don't worry yourselves too much, it'll take more than a little snow to stop us."

When Rick arrived, Anaiya turned to face him... or it with surprise. "Ah, hello Rick." she said. The doctor had limited experience with the more technologically grounded denizens of Terra, and as a result was somewhat taken aback.

Cináed took the initiative in her stead as she faltered, smiling to the turret thing. "Hi! I'm Cináed, er, nope. No monsters here. Just a weird winged blue guy, and a wolf, and us. You wouldn't happen to know a different way to the temple, would you? The main road is blocked, as you can see."

The blonde turned to prod Sahlie in the side. "Cheer up!" he said brightly, remaining cheerful despite the weather. "Or do you want me to hold your hand and be your personal radiator to make your climb more comfortable, Mr. Irritable?" Cináed laughed, shaking his head.

"A wolf?"

Casren had found the source of the noise, and had finally fished it from where it was in his swathings. Triumphantly, he read what was there. An e-mail, of some sort, from some...Oh hell. He fumbled with the damned thing, and was so frustrated that the world wolf completely took him off guard.

The phone plummeted into the snow. Fabulous. He looked up, more people. Great. More introductions.

"Casren," He sighed, descending to fish his phone from the snow. Blast all of this.

Upon hearing mention of his prey Rick's sides popped open to reveal his guns. "Where is it?" He swivels around be doesn't see the wolf. Failing that he turns back to the group, "Ahh I see you guys have gotten lost and are now suffering from mountain madness! Do Not Worry! I am a trained adventurer and not one of your disillusions! Please do not eat me. I know that in your madness filled minds that I may look like a nice juicy steak but I am in fact, not a steak. Now then if you will follow me, I will lead you to safety!" Rick turns around and rolls back down the mountain, his quest for the wolf pelt on hold.

Casren sighed, loudly, audibly, on purpose.

He was honestly tired of all of this. Tired of this trip, these people, and most of all the snow. It wasn't the travelling, it was the constant reminder from nature himself that he should turn back now. Bowls, appearances, gravity, slides, wolves? No.

He descended into the snow, brushing off his phone, and dully staring at his feet. When could they get on with it already? He was tired of this. Bored.

Meanwhile, back at base - or rather, simply a few feet away, Sahlie was as irritated as Casren, for similar reasons. He was pretty sick of it all, the snow, the climbing, the mountain, unexpected surprises, the cold, and the snow. Well, there may have been some redundacy as far as his annoyances went. Most of them had to do with the goddamn mountain the group was on right now.

Finally realising the turret was present, Sahlie turned to it. At this point, he was not surprised at anything they encountered. As such, the trickster simply sighed and nodded, more to himself than anyone or anything else. "Sahlie," came his curt greeting, mirroring that of the others. The damn thing presumed he was crazy. He really, really hoped he was. At least mountain madness probably didn't bring about whatever Rick was. It was too ridiculous to be false.

Even at Cinaed's prod, his expression was still negative, though his mood did lighten as he rolled his eyes. "Yeah yeah, hold my hand, please. While you're at it, carry me up to the temple, wouldja? If you could, you could look into marketing yourself as a heated ride. Probably make pretty good business for people who decide to go into cold places."

At this point, he had forgotten his previous irritation at Casren's phone. After all, it probably wouldn't do any good to worry about it, and the damn thing certainly wouldn't be a help, unless S.O.S. went this far out.

With that, the teen went back to trudging after his companions, who were now following the turret. Named Rick. Just because he wasn't surprised, didn't mean he couldn't be amazed at the pure ridiculousness of the situation.

Entry 134. Following a talking lump of metal. Really wish I had a journal now.

"Right. Mountain madness. What? No, nevermind." Cináed laughed slightly awkwardly, shaking his head. He decided it was better not to ask. Juicy steak, what? This was a strange robot... thing.

He and Anaiya exchanged a glance, and the doctor shrugged her shoulders. "He seems to be going in the same direction as the wolf," she mused, "Perhaps it was an omen, and we ignored it. Alas. It's in the right direction, at least. If I had to make a judgement call as to where we might find an alternate route, that's where I would have taken us."

Cináed nodded, "Alright, then! Let's go."

The still-cheerful teen bent down to grab Casren's arm, pulling the vampire to his feet determinedly. He used his free hand to snatch up Sahlie's arm as well, and set off at a brisk march after Rick between the two of them. He was determined to infuse them with some of his enthusiasm.

Anaiya shook her head with a smile and followed after the group.

It was only a couple of short hours later before the group approached the temple itself. It seemed their journey was finally coming to a close.

A short time later, another group arrived in the courtyard from the mountain trail. They were a ragtag band, consisting of a robot, a pair of teenagers, a vampire and an older woman. Anaiya, the healer woman who had taken the lead when they came closer to the temple, turned to look at the rest of the party with a smile. "Here we are. The Patronus' temple in all its glory. I hope you all find the resolution to your dreams here."

She inclined her head towards them respectfully, "I must get these medicines to the proper recipients. If you need me, I'll be here until tomorrow. After that you can find me in Windcrest, in my home. I'll no doubt be seeing you again soon."

And with that, she strode away towards the temple. She frowned faintly as she noticed the soldiers present, but trusted in the Patronus enough to not worry for her safety as she passed by and disappeared into the building.

Cináed finally dropped Casren and Sahlie's arms to wave after Anaiya as she left, "Thanks for all your help!" he called. The blonde teen spun on a heel to grin cheerfully at the pair, crossing his arms behind his back as he walked backwards. "See, that wasn't so bad, was it?"

He didn't notice the soldiers, having turned around, and so missed the tension in the air entirely. "What happens next, then?" he mused aloud. "Do we wait for a welcoming committee?"

The robot turns back to address the others "SEE! I new you guys had it in you not to succumb to the MOUNTAIN MADNESS!!" His voice took on a weird emphasis when he said that.

Casren blinked with tired eyes at everyone, and gave one of his signature sighs. His phone was snow logged, he was cold, it was disgusting out, and for the first time in quite some time, Casren Bistreo was legitimately exhausted. Despite all this, Casren couldn't help but faintly smile in relief. They had made it. They had braved the storm, and the snow bowl, and that weird event...That weird event.

A chill shot up Casren's spine as he remembered the warning, staring at the doors to the Temple. And then the soldiers. He had grown used to soldiers following him everywhere lately, and hadn't noticed them at first. Well, he noticed them now, oh did he notice them.

"It appears we won't have to wait."

"I hope so too, or we'll have climbed up here for no reason," the teen mumbled softly at Anaiya's words, sighing and stopping along with the rest of the group. As she prepared to leave, he raised his hand in a small salute of gratitude. "Thanks for saving me and all. See you around."

His hand made a small thump as it collapsed to his side. Sahlie moved his eyes up to meet Cináed's and his eyebrow shot up. "I don't even think that dignifies an answer, Mr. Toasty."

Upon Casren's comments, he turned to stare at the soldiers. "Well, I always enjoy a good welcome party. Assuming I stay alive the whole party. By the way, I thought this was a temple, not a barracks. I mean, that's what they say. Wonder what's up with the army here."

Of course, he was exaggerating a bit, but it was a valid question. What were soldiers doing here exactly? What were they doing exactly? Apparently those questions would be answered soon.

"So what now, team?"

A team of Aschen medics brushed through the people gathered at the temple while heading towards the Barracks. On the stretcher was a young soldier, no older than twenty crying for his mother, half of his face missing and his arm and leg torn apart. There was also a deep gash in the man's side, his intestines hanging from the gash while the Medics tried to stabilize him.

They shoved past Arrow and Rhea towards the Barracks, two Soldiers moving behind them, caked in blood and smelling of carrion and entrails.

Another bad omen.

Casren stared, his mind hot with disbelief. Some force of the universe was discouraging this path, at all costs. The man was bloodied on the stretcher, was his end near? Who were these soldiers? Casren could swear he had smelled that scent before. Aside from the familiar waftings of mortal blood, of course. It hit him like a ship smashing to Terra. What were the Aschen doing here?

He looking to Sahlie and shrugged.

Rynhart approached the new arrivals with pointed purpose as he separated from the gathered onlookers in the courtyard. As he came to stop before them he briefly looked them over before nodding his head towards the temple steps.

"Come," he offered.

He headed up the steps without so much as a glance back, seemingly assuming the group would follow him. There were still a large number of Aschen soldiers idling within the courtyard, but the soldiers seemed to be for the most part not paying the temple residents much mind and he didn't spare them a glance either as he strode past with the new arrivals at his back.

Cináed raised an eyebrow at Sahlie, "Mr. Toasty?" he questioned, folding his arms with a smirk. He followed the others' eyes, then, to the soldiers spread out across the courtyard. His smile dropped into a faint frown, "Huh, I certainly wasn't expecting this sort of thing here." he remarked a little uneasily.

He lapsed into a momentary silence until Rynhart approached, at which point he blinked in surprise. "Come..? Are you in charge here..?" he started, but by that point the man was already walking away. He stared after him for a few moments before turning to the rest of the group. "Well, I guess that answers our question. As vague and mysterious as expected, I guess!"

With a beckoning gesture for the others to follow, he hurried after Rynhart into the Temple proper.

Casren followed after with a considerably less amount of enthusiasm. As he took in the temple, the soldiers who went unacknowledged, he wondered. Something, he could not say what, was not right here. The warning from the dish still quaked the fibers of his flesh. It was a threat to his very vampyric fate.

Who was it on the edge of that depression? Time had frozen and the voice had echoed sound over the mountain-scape. What divine being dare speak such definitive statements? It was troubling, indeed. A warning from the Gods? Vague and mysterious indeed. This mountain had produced nothing good, it had crushed his hopes and dreams under an avalanche of soul defiance.

Casren nodded and marched onward after the others, ready to be lead almost anywhere, so long as his questions would be answered.
