Situated within the cafe were two men, out of the ordinary from what one would consider a "regular" person due to their manner of dress and overall demeanor throughout their stay here was odd. Still, they weren't disturbed by the others who frequented this old and well-reputable establishment. Christopher sat, reading from one of his books while Vithimiris stood guard by him, keeping an eye out for the would-be takers of their earlier request.

"I'm not sure if they're coming..." The snake-like voice from Vithimiris spoke up, turning his gaze from beneath his mask to Christopher.

Without even glancing up, Christopher grunted and turned a page. "They'll come, just give it time. It's not like this place is that easy to find...trust me. They'll be here soon..."

“So you can’t seem to make heads or tales of this either, Tequil? I’m surprised.” Vegeshin crudely commented with a jovial chuckle; a man with the means to tease his mentor. “I’d figure with all that infinite wisdom you happen to possess, you’d know if this was some sort of ruse.” That haphazard smile of amusement wouldn’t erase itself from his countenance, and yet he managed to relent in the mockery of the man who sought to oversee his perpetual growth.

“Indeed, in all my infinite wisdom, I can’t quite find the capacity to understand such a trivial, boresome, mystery.” Tequil quipped in return. “Oh my! A strange letter addressed to me! It has coordinates for an interview with a man by the name of Christopher! Is he a dangerous man? Does he, perhaps, intend on bringing me harm!?” Tequil continued, prattling on with a mocking gesture of his hand, the back of it placed upon the crown of his head-piece as if he were impersonating a damsel in distress. As prim, and proper, as Tequil often came across, there were indeed times in which he’d stoop to ridiculously low levels if only to jab at Vegeshin in return. “A man of your caliber shouldn’t fret over the likes of something so petty. I doubt your elder kin would go to such pathetic extents to lure you into some sort of damning scenario.” He finished, offering a wave of his stave so as to illuminate the large crystalline piece situated at its top.

“Mn. You make a valid point. But suffice it to say, I tread the line of caution. He’s fooled me on multiple occasions. I can’t afford to let him fool me again. He very well could have found success in his last attempt on my life had that estranged pit of liquid not restored me. Still, it came with a price.” He explained, his arms now crossed beneath his chest as his eyes fell shut.

“Ah, yes. Woe is me, and my plight. Forever cursed to relive my life from late twenties onward. Such an arduous, trying, bane to my daily existence.” Tequil retorted, his eyes having rolled in the process. “You lament far too much for someone meant to be a shining beacon to those who look up to those gifted, and heroic, like yourself. Enough, I’ll be sending you there now. You’ll arrive in your necessary attire, and perhaps something a bit more quaint, and concealing, to wear over it. I presume what constitutes as quaint, in most fashionable senses, will likely fit right in.”

And with that Vegeshin’s figure fell prey to the all-consuming light of Tequil’s capacity to transport individuals to wherever he so pleases; be it a location he can visualize within the crystalline ball of his stave. Shunted throughout space, with time being relative in the grand scheme of things, he found himself thrust upon his feet lightly, but with enough force to lightly buckle his knees, at a mild teeter and a wobble in his balance. As Tequil had mentioned, he’d been freshly clad in a different attire than he’d previously been wearing. He now sported the casual getup he often wore in times of duty consisting of his usual violet and black top, his white bottoms, and the ankle wraps and footwear. The quaint addition simply happened to be a slim fitting, regal appearing, blackened duster with a hint of professionalism attached to it. Not something he’d have chosen himself, but it didn’t much matter he figured. With a last glance down to the summons, he glanced back up at the establishment with a squint and a quirk drawn into his features. This had to be the place; Tequil didn’t make make mistakes.

“Still. Why the hell did it come my way…” He murmured, a huff having followed closely after. As he wandered his way in, passerbys wouldn’t have found trouble in hearing him muttering further on about how quests weren’t his forte.

Once inside, he took a glance about and, after sifting through the various mundane lot, settled his gaze upon two unique looking individuals. Almost immediately, he found himself unable to answer a forever lingering question that continued to prod at his mental fortitude time and time again. In such a vast, wildly amalgamated, macroverse, the idea of so many mundane individuals existing in one place whilst only a few, particularly eccentric, characters seemed to be dotted around. Often times, he found himself of the idea that it should be very well the opposite. He shook the thought from his mind as he slowly began his approach, taking care to shift, and weave, through bodily obstacles. Despite having such a possible nonchalant attire, his vibrant violet-purple locks and lavender colored eyes would likely draw attention, if not the unique facial markings that adorned either side of his visage.

He didn’t say a word, though. Be it far from him to address a stranger who sought the help of another through such means.

#, as written by Davien
Davien slipped his way into the threshold of the doorway for the Cafe. Unconsciously, effortlessly, and expertly, he bobbed and weaved between the much tall patrons, muzzled upwardly turned to take in the view of peoples beer bellies and nose hairs, a view that could only come from being so short. The small Mishqua found his way towards one of the walls, where he could relax. His tail twitched in annoyance as he tried his best to undo the broken zipper on the jacket he was currently wearing, finally getting it to force its way past the broken tooth in the line as it came undone with a familiar "zzzip" sound.

He produced a small piece of paper, probably from a magazine or textbook of some sort, having typed letters on one side and not the other. On the blank side there was a smattering of crude block letters, barely arranged correctly with keywords misspelled.

"Kristofer, , multey versal cafay, Danger Muney!!"

He refolded the piece of paper carefully, as if it were some sacred artifact, and put it back in the ratty jacket that adorned him. Davien found himself frustrated with his immediate surroundings, as he usually did after a while. Staying put for too long went against every one of his instincts, and wherever he had heard this rumor, something deep in his gut told him to jot the information down. It may very well be his ticket out of this place. But where to start the search for this... Davien squinted at the paper again, green eyes dilating as his ears folded back slightly. "Kristopher...." He sounded out the name, realizing it was a fairly common one for humans. Hopefully it would be easy enough to spot such a person in the cafe based around more than his name.

Scanning the room, Davien once again decided to rely on his gut, watching the other patrons demeanor and attire to try and suss out the more likely suspects. Sitting a bit farther away from the more townsy looking folk were two individuals, one reading a book and the other wearing a full face cover. Hm. It was at least worth a shot, the Mishqua thought to himself. Walking along the wall, he made his way over to the Duo, and stood in front of the table they were currently sitting at. He smiled nervously to both of them, as his ears tucked back slightly with anxiety. Producing the small almost illegible note, he gingerly unfolded it and put it in front of the two men, turning it 180 degrees to face the men.

"Em..." He said just a bit quietly and anxiously. "Excuse me. Are either of you Christopher?" He said with small, toothy and inquiring smile, softly ringing his hands together. "I am here to help?" He said, looking up and over the table at the two. "I promise, I look like not much..." He said, his accent and grammar muddying up his last few words. "But I can be useful if you let me." He said with a nod, waiting for their reaction.

Christopher's eyes darted around, catching sight of one man approaching. Vithimiris lowered his head slightly, on-edge and keeping a close eye. Saying nothing was usually not a good sign, however he did not act...instead keeping his cool, and merely narrowing his eyes from beneath the mask. Another figure was brought to Christopher's attention as well, this one a fox, and he was looking for...well, them. Good! Good...

"I am Christopher," He spoke up, coughing and eyeing Vejeshin once more. Presuming him to be here for them and not here to cause trouble, he continued. "I'm assuming my advertisement for exploration caught you two's eyes?...Ahem, yes well. Forgive my lack of professionalism. But I will cut straight to the point."

Pulling out a map, Christopher laid it atop the table before them, pointing to a mountain among the map. "This right here," he began again, "is a place of great mystery and intrigue for me personally. Not so much the political matter that took place here." Christopher pointed to a place marked as "Valley of Shadows" and huffed. "Some danger, fighting if you will, exists there. It's best to avoid it. Instead, we're aiming for a far more mysterious - and maybe even sinister location. It's not listed on this map, however there's a rumor of great power residing somewhere within this abandoned fortress."

Christopher cleared his throat, and rolled up the map after a few moments of pondering over it. "I'm willing to pay a handsome amount of coin to anyone who wishes to join me on this expedition to the mountain. Pay in advance will be given - half of what will be earned - however bailing will ensure you won't be paid the rest. And...I don't know how dangerous this path will be. It may be easy, or it may be a death trap. I'd rather err on the side of safety and have help with me."

Perhaps his sullen appearing silence hadn’t been the correct means to approach the two, but the reality of the situation deemed it to be appropriate, in his opinion. Subjective reasoning, of course, and yet still apt for the situation at hand. He’d presumed the two to be the ones he’d sought, and he’d been proven correct in his assumptions the moment a bipedal fox being took to conversing with them. And so he continued in silence, simply returning the unwavering stare from the masked individual whilst waiting for Christopher to explain his piece.

His eyes darted immediately to the map pulled out, scanning it swiftly and adeptly, keeping keen ears open to listen to the accompanying details offered. Mention of a Valley of Shadows, and the idea to avoid it, instead placing focus on an abandoned fortress. He had to stifle, even bite back, a chuckle at the comment that despite having a map, the location they’d be aiming for didn’t even appear upon it.

Then the matter of money seemed to rear its head. Compensation always had to be involved. Perhaps the foxkin could use it, but Vegeshin had no earthly desire for it. In any situation involving compensation in the form of payment, he’d always denied it; outright refused it. It didn’t seem right, most oft. He figured now would be a better time than any to finally speak up, and the calm, low, tone of his voice broke through.

“To err on the side of caution would be wise, of course...yet. You’ve no other intel on the location, in question, other than rumor and myth?” Vegeshin questioned initially, sidling up closer finally to point at him as he rolled up the map. “You’ve a map, but no definitive idea where the location may be on that map?” He added with a light chuckle. “Or does that come after one either agrees to, or declines, the offer?”

Shrewd; an accurate word, but a far cry beneath what Vegeshin could be defined as. He existed on a plateau far above a simple word such as shrewd. Perhaps he read into things far too intently, and in convoluted and complex ways; be that fact. Still he, too, erred on the side of caution. Toed it indefinitely.

He waved a dismissive hand. “I don’t need payment. I’m a man obligated to his purpose. Some call me a hero. Others a vigilante. Yet others, the obscure term paragon.” He began. “I can’t deny the fact your parchment found its way to me. That said, I’ll consider this a duty of mine, and not a job.” His lids closed for a moment of brief respite, his resonating tone falling silent for just as short a moment. “Although…” he began, opening an eye. “While my services are free, they may be a bit excessive for something like this.” He mentioned with a light grin.

If there came a moment he’d have to display just a fractional margin of what he held capacity for, well, be it bound to astound.

The door to the Multiversal Café opened, and a young woman in a leather garb with a large oak staff stepped in. She walked over to the bartender and said in a thick accent, "Do you know where I could find a man by the name of Christopher?"

#, as written by Davien
Davien did his very best to listen along, nodding when the others did and pretending he understood the multisyllabic words better than he did. Gleaning from the conversation what was going on, he hopped dexterously up onto a nearby chair to look at the map with everyone else, remaining silent as he absorbed what was going on. Hrm… Abandoned… Davien had definitely heard that word before. Then Davien heard it.

“Handsome amount of coin.” Daviens ears perked towards the man who said the phrase, eyes lighting up and mouth opening with excitement. Davien didn’t have the largest understanding of why he needed gold, but he knew he would be powerful if he had some. Especially if he had a lot. From what he had seen of humankind, the yellow metal controlled entire kingdoms, and perhaps, just maybe, Davien could make his own. His tail twitched in anticipation of this daydream, but he knew at least in the more grounded reality of the situation, he would at least be able to afford rent, and eat non-pilfered food for a while.

Davien heard the part about Danger, and couldn’t really be bothered. If it was a death trap, the sneaky vulpine would be sure to wriggle his way out somehow. The others? Maybe not.. But that was not of his concern. Besides, the purple haired one looked as though he was simply doing this for fun, which surprisingly put Daviens little mind more at ease. His excitement could no longer be contained as Christopher wrapped up. He jumped atop the table next to the map pointing a heroicly posed finger out the window as his tail wagged. “To the Valley of Shadows! The rest of our lives begins there!”

Christopher was surprised, not just from the responses he was getting but by the new arrival of another as well. "I am he." Was his only response for the woman, he was already busy explaining everything and now listening to these two, he didn't feel like going over this all over again, so he opted to convince himself she had been paying attention, and that it'll all be okay.

Towards Veji, Christopher adjusted his appearance to look more 'official' despite the fact that he was anything but, and puffed his chest out a bit in faux pride. "I know precisely the direction we're heading, the signs to look out for, and what everything entails. Trust me. I have hunted mysterious and mythical locations many times. I only go after ones I'm sure are real." Regarding payment, he waved a hand dismissively. "Very well. We'll discuss it in more detail afterwards if things change."

Turning his attention to Davien and the new woman, he nodded to them. "Yes, yes indeed...no. Wait. No. Not to the Valley of Shadows. We are searching for a treasure...of sorts, somewhere near the mountain that's close to that valley. But we should avoid the valley itself."

Pulling his spellbook from his bag and activating an effect which was apparently pre-written into the tome, a inky blue portal of sorts formed in mid-air within the cafe, revealing itself to everyone. "Alright. This was made before, and is attuned to the location in the mountains where we need to start if we are to make good progress. Follow me through, and we can begin..."

Saying this, Christopher stepped through...

...and stepped out the other side safe and sound, arms outstretched as he took in the nature around him briefly. "Ahh...excellent...it is safe, you guys!" He shouted this out through the portal, awaiting the other's arrival.

So the man appeared to be confident in where he’d planned on journeying, at least he could find some sense of comfort in that. Not entirely, of course, in lieu of the man’s sudden need to present himself in a more profound nature; alluding to one of two things. Confidence, or lack thereof. Regardless, knowing full well the caliber he sat comfortably in, Vegeshin found little concern as to the where, the why, or any threats. He could, likely, deal with the lot of it as it came up. His primary goal was to keep the lot of them as safe as he possibly could, no matter what trials were faced and he’d do just that.

“Fair enough.” He silently replied, before following the man through the enigmatic portal that lay before them. At this point, Vegeshin casually began to toss caution into the wind. The man, in question, that he’d taken this job from seemed far from the type to collude with his elder sibling. He didn’t fit the mold, and so the lavender hued mixed blood allowed himself the pleasure of dismissing his uneasiness.
Humor could be found, though, in the fact that Vegeshin had promptly followed the man through, and so upon Christopher calling out that it had been safe to cross; Vegeshin couldn’t help but stare at the man with a blank expression. “As I can see, yes it is. Wouldn’t it have been a bit more...Mmnn…” He began, then faltered and allowed his words to fall away, waving a dismissive hand in the fellows direction. “Nevermind.” He added with a sudden chuckle.

He allowed himself a swift stretch, limbering up a mild bit, before feeling out his surroundings. Sensory perception of all five senses seemed normal, with his sixth sense of sorts, Ki Sensory, responding as normal as anywhere else. It did, truly, appear to be safe, at least according to what he could perceive. “Quite the sight to see. It’s not often I travel outside of civilization here on Terra.” He murmured to himself before turning to Christopher. “I’ll be but a moment; that said if you’ve anything important to say, remember it and relay it to me when I return to the ground…” He mentioned.

To the ground? Indeed. Without hesitation, nor a second thought, he left the surface and began to rise upward into the air. Levitation, or flight. Various individuals considered it various different things. He knew it as Bukujutsu, or the ability to manipulate one’s Ki so as to allow themselves flight. His goal seemed merely to be an extended reconnaissance of the area. His eyes could only peer so far in the current vicinity, with trees and other flora and fauna acting as hindrances. He’d only be a moment, though, and left the floor to Christopher so as to not hold up any important conversational pieces he might happen to have.

Christopher lead his group through the Collenham Mountains for about an hour or so, braving the wilds and yet...strangely enough not coming across any vicious fauna like Christopher expected. Odd...to make things stranger, as he neared the site he was directed to he could feel a strange...pull. This lead him through the Mountain Fortress and just into it, as they approach he spoke up.

"Past this point, it is up to the rest of you if you want to stay. There's something strange...something off. I won't let you strangers get pulled into undue danger - not ones beyond perhaps even my own comprehension." Pulling the rest of the money from his satchel he'd move to offer it to those who had taken the quest. "If you wish to stay, it's not bound by the contract so I'd still take the payment. But either way, you're free to make your own choices...thanks for getting me to here."

Vithimiris grunted.

Whether or not the others would stay, Christopher would approach through the entrance, seeing the door and...stunned. There were already people here? He suddenly felt a lot less special.

Kanto was still a little wary and unsure of Flynn's sniffing and prodding, but he stayed close to her, his tail swishing in contemplation. Being dragged across reality? The description itself did no favors to quell his apprehension. But he had come this far, and Flynn seemed like the friendliest creature he had met in this place.

Kanto watched as the transformation took place across the room, heart racing just a bit as he mustered up some courage, keeping close to Flynn as she asked a question about drugs.

"Kanto has not done this... But he will stay close and move swift!" He said with a nod, offering his wrist to the dinosaur as she had requested, looking at her third blinking eye.

"All right then," Jennifer sighed. "If we're going to take a vacation to where I think we're going, we're going to need to stop at my house for supplies. That would be near Ridgecrest City, and the place is crawling with shadow dudes of all types...it's why I ran to this fortress in the first place. Casren, Sara, and, uh...Flynn? On me. Let's see if we can't slip past their perimeter. The light dragon dude makes me think they aren't quite as strong as before. If it comes to a fight, we might be able to break the line, but we're done for if we're surrounded, so we'll have to move fast."

She put her bag back up on her shoulders. "Back to the main gate. We got a long way to go and not a lot of daylight."

Flynn took Davien's hand with a raking trill the small feathers of it silky soft, "rRrRrRrRr! Your rabid gunners are your problem. We have a way out to follow the elf."

Her head lowered to move her feathered tail curled around him to make sure he knew when to slow down so he'd keep pace. As they neared the ripple in reality left behind Flynn's soft melodic humming followed along with ticking coming from darker corners. The world didn't as much get smaller, though there was likely that sense of vertigo, but everything seeming to rotate in place at some strange angle difficult to properly express. Externally Flynn and passenger got flatter the closer to the Elf's last spot before slipping out of reality entirely. Nothing but a lazy lensing of light as if a small disquiet pond hovered a crater in midair.

The inside of the path lost all sense of time in the endless astral plane reflecting on the soul of the one that passed through it. A chaotic place for the unprepared there was never anything to focus on for long before the hall of mirrors shone a new memory. Except for the black feathered sapien in front of him. Occasionally veering up, or even stopping to smell for the trail in painful looking sharp angles. Below them both the hall of mirrors seemed to prefer memories of footprints as if her own desire to trail Yvandir smashed a toe-claw into the memory and held it there. In all Flynn was the island of calm the panes lurking between her feathers fending off the emitted hazardous will of an astral plane.

It was the loss of the contiguity of time that would be the deepest hazard. When the mind lost its place in the inexorable deep that was the Astral plane. While it might perhaps seem that their trip was still ongoing it was Flynn's ardent voice calling for Kanto's attention that was the present moment. He would have to engage with the present moment than the past.

Sara looked to Jennifer "Well i'm trained for stealth missions and with my Psionic powers I should be able to detect any hostiles and if we are careful... and lucky... we should be able to get in and out quick and quiet."

Sara did a check of her rifle and other gear and nodded. "Ok I'll stay cloaked behind you just lead and I will follow. I can use my powers and suit's tech to render myself unseen even by magic and anti stealth tech. Anything tries to attack us...they will be dead before they know I hit them."

Sara then once again vanished from view not even a shimmer of her was seen.

The Aschen team continued to work hard setting up the pallet with the laser drill, while a pair of scientists that dropped down from the ship above began taking close up photographs of the door itself, along with installing anti-mana charges.

"Solis, you're to take the data gathered here back to Langara, where the data will be analyzed and a course of action chosen." The Radio chirped.

The Aschen woman nodded, extending her hand to take the data recorder from her science team.

"Alright, I need to take this back to the Empire." She said, taking the device.

The scientists nodded, before fanning out and taking additional photographs.

Looking up, Erin watched the Aschen vessel disappear without a trace, it's stealth systems engaging, then she touched a device on her wrist, a swirling vortex of energies engulfing her, allowing the woman to seemingly disappear without a trace.

"This," Casren gestured to the Impervious Door, "Is a great puzzle that we've all, somehow, been elected to complete."

"I," The vampire pointed to himself, "Am Casren Bistreo, and it's a pleasure to meet you despite the circumstance. A pleasure to meet a-" He turned, realizing more people had disappeared, but the idea of the drill was still in motion.

Casren sighed and looked after those headed to Ruula. Though he had arrived here with Jennifer, he really wasn't much looking to go traipsing back through the mountains. Casren wasn't hungry, and he wasn't cold, and if anything he was overwhelmingly curious about what was behind The Impervious Door. He gave it a long stare.

Wait, was it looking at the drill?

His earlier scouting hadn’t truly been met with astounding results, albeit he had noticed something quite interesting in the distance. And that had offered a profound impact upon arrival to the door. They were not alone. Others had gathered at the door, rendering this quest of Christopher’s quite null, in a handful of aspects. Events had seemingly transpired in their absence, important information likely missed out upon before their arrival, and even Christopher himself made it quite apparent that they, those who'd joined him, needn’t proceed onward if they found it unnecessary.

And Vegeshin found it just that. Unnecessary. Quite the collection of individuals had gathered, some having already left for whatever ongoing tasks were required of them. Some remained. An Aschen vessel loomed overhead, and then suddenly did so no longer. Various individuals dotted the area, despite many having left, and it left Vegeshin rather disinterested in the happenings from then onward. His task had merely been to bring individual A to location B. And that had been fulfilled; contract completed.

Before any could question the lavender eyed, violet tressed, individual, he casually defied gravity. “Keep your pay, Christopher. As I mentioned earlier, t’was an obligation to fulfill. Stay safe, and enjoy your further adventures.” He offered with a mild smile and a two fingered salute sort of wave. With that, he made his departure so as to not get drawn in to the convoluted nature of such an event. His duty remained to act as a paragon, not an adventurer.

"I shall stay," Havasikaji said in her thick Solinus accent. "I have nowhere else to go. Thus, I shall stay here and do what I can to assist."

The emerald eyes of The Impervious Door flashed, washing the cavern green with light.

"UNITED ARE THE EYES"


The door spoke as the bright light faded, the eyes returning to a subtle green glow.

#, as written by Sepokku
Integra appeared in a swirl of silvery light, nanite swarms pouring out of the rift he'd created and settling like a gloss on his jacket. Eight undead monstrosities, each an amalgamation of different creatures sewn together, then augmented with cybernetics, stepped out of pitch-black rifts of pure night. With a free appendage, they each saluted their Captain and fell into formation behind him, their various weapons at the ready.

It was crowded here, much more crowded than it had any right to be. "Ello, ello, my duckies! My name is Once Dread Pirate Captain Integra Blackheart, no relation, and I'm here to fulfill the prophecy." One of the servitors dropped a cask of femtites, which rose up and surrounded the Captain creating an imperceptible swarm of femtometre sized robots that formed a bubble around him. "I trust we are all ready to begin?"
