Welcome to The World of Gaia, Adventurer.

You have come at a most dire time. The land is steadily falling into much strife with each passing turn of the sun. Plague spreads across the Kingdom of Skyfall, sending many men to an early grave. It is close to claiming the King and along with it, the Crystal Crown. The Noble Houses of Markett, Traeger, and Edenhelm are all laying claim to the throne with political savagery and causing much dissent in the land due to chaos. Civil war is drawing more near as tensions rise between the Houses as Skyfall may soon be left leaderless from the death of their Beloved King Lesym Tharcey Edenhelm. The denizens of Skyfall are left to ponder who will rise up while the elderly, the young, and the frail are stricken with the plague. Clerics scramble in order to find a cure but none has been found, only a road to an untroubled death through medicine.

In the isolated Kingdom of Mahark, inside The Exalted Mountains, the Dwarves still dig as deep as the earth will allow. It has come to light that they may have dug too far. An artifact of great proportions had been unearthed and revealed in the depths of the mountains. Not even the lore of the Dwarven Lords recite such an article in the Tales of Mahark. Details of the artifact cannot be uncovered as any who travel too close disappear and are never seen again. Dwarves ride as fast as their steeds will allow in order to reach the Neluthien Kingdom. They seek to speak with the elves and collect their intellect on the matter, even if they must begrudgingly pay a hefty fee of precious mithril arms and armament.

Meanwhile, Kingdom of Neluthien remains as silent as it always has been, hiding many secrets inside the Elwendil Woods. But if one were a Child of the Woods, they would speak of the Elven War raging within the depth of the forest. All stake claim for ultimate rule as the Vallade House and the Ithlond House attempt to grasp absolute power. While most denizens follow the Old Ways and the Vallade, their are some who whisper of how Ithlond's ideals are more agreeable. And as the treachery between the divided Houses, the Diviners begin to speak of ill omens and a shadow which is extending its arm out for the Kingdom of Skyfall, intent on swallowing all life on Gaia.

So tell me, Adventurer, are you adamant in your decision to step foot upon the soils of Gaia's Realms, or have you now grown enough conscious to believe that it is best to turn your back on this world?

The consequences of destroying the level would be witnessed immediately. The loud sounds of gears turning would be heard. And then the sound reversed as if it was counting down a time limit. The grate on the other side of the door would lift and reveal the way into the next room. But, there was immediate danger as the floor fell away in pieces.

Hot and dense air would immediately be noticed and a strange red glow filled the room. There was magma beneath the floor and would kill any that fell down instantly. There was no choice but to go further due to the only hope for an exit laid at the end of the dungeon. A small path of floating squares were left, but great leaps would have to be made in order for them all to cross before the grate closed.

If they did not work together, they would fail.

Inside the Dwarven Stout during the middle of the night, something began to stir inside of Ebony’s room. It came to her in the form of her twin sister, glowing brilliantly and alighting the room in a warm and comforting luminescence. There was a song to be heard. It was something familiar, sung by a familiar voice, gentle and comforting as a lullaby.

“Ebony,” came the call from the specter and it held out a hand towards the girl, “Come to me. Take my hand.” The lips of “Sol” never moved and her voice sounded like a ghost’s. The stone in Ebony’s possession willed her towards the illusion, wanting the girl to go to it.

Ebony lifted her head from her pillow, staring at the image of Sol. Her eyes widened, taking hold of the Water Stone that she had kept at her side while she slept. It couldn't be... she knew it was trying to deceive her, trick her. Yet the Water Stone wanted her to go...

She might have done as the illusion had asked had it not taken a form that was so dear to her. "Why do you look like her?" she asked angrily, in a hushed voice. "What do you want me for?" This only led more credence to the other Sol's words that the stones were evil.

“We choose familiar songs, voices, and bodies when presenting ourselves to our Bearers. It is for comfort and ease of mind. Tell me, Ebony, would you have wanted a strange face with a strange voice coming to you in the middle of the Sleeping Hours?”

It still held out its hand towards her, smiling as Ebony’s lover would smile. Soft and gentle.

Ebony wanted to reach out, thinking that this was all a dream and that when she took hold of the hand, she would awaken back in her world holding the real Sol's hand. She shook her head, staring at the floor away from the illusion. "I would have preferred if... if you didn't take the form of someone I missed so much." She tossed the sheets off of her. "What do you want? 'Bearer'... are you some sort of spirit of the Water Stone? Are these stones really instruments of the 'Colossi'? I'm not going to do anything with this until I'm absolutely sure of everyone's intentions with it..."

There was melodious laughter and it filled the room. The image tilted its head to the side and its hand was still held out as if holding it so still did not fatigue it.

“All your answers will come but my power to remain here fades with every passing second. We are weak, Ebony. That is why we need your help. Gaia needs Night. Needs the Sleeping Hours to rest. I have seen into your mind. Seen your world. Gaia needs to be like yours but cannot unless you help. The Mother is unbalanced and cries for Darkness.”

“Now. Come. Please. Will you help Us?”

Ebony thought about it for a second. She imagined that the Sol from this world would be ready to kill her if she knew that Ebony was following the Stone's directions, but part of her felt that this world of eternal sunlight was unnatural, wrong. Perhaps this world needed night after all... Ebony knew that she didn't care for the constant sunshine.

Sliding to the edge of her bed, she nodded. "Very well. What do you need from me?" She held out her hand towards the image of her love, biting her lip and hoping that its reasons for taking her appearance were truly to comfort Ebony and not to trick her.

The stone’s projected image took Ebony’s hand and smiled that sweet and gentle smile. The room faded away and the girl would feel the sensation of her feet leaving the ground and suddenly traveling a great distance across the land. Green passed beneath and then gold before being replaced with green and blue. The rapid movement stopped and they both stood on an island in the middle of the Empyrean Sea. To the south one could see the beaches of Siv’en, the continent that held the Kingdom of Skyfall.

The image of Ebony’s Sol released the girl’s hand and pointed to the water.

“Go into the water. Allow it to greet you. It shall give you what you were destined …”

Ebony looked around, staring at the ocean that surrounded the island. She looked to the illusion of Sol, giving that familiar smile. She looked to the water, then said, "Very well."

She took slow steps down towards the water, taking a minute to actually set foot in the water. She continued to advance slowly, constantly glancing back towards the illusion. Ebony kept going until she was waist-deep in the water. She remembered the monsters that had lived in the water in the Crystal Tower and began to wonder if any guarded whatever she came here for. Still not sure whether or not trusting the illusion was a good idea, Ebony asked, "What now?"

The image of Sol disappeared as soon as the girl set foot in the water. It duty had been done. The waters of the Empyrean Sea were warm and welcoming. They were oddly pliant to the Bearer of the Water Stone, making her wade into the sea more than easy.

Something shimmered beneath the water. Treasure or something greater perhaps. The stone in Ebony’s hand willed her to reach down for it. It wanted her to have whatever it was beneath the water that had been hidden so long ago; cast away.

Ebony stared at the empty beach, wondering how exactly she would be returned back to civilization. She felt the Stone telling her that something waited in the water, something for her... as she set her eyes upon whatever laid beneath the water, she wondered if taking it would help the world as Ry'nn and the illusion believed or threaten it as that woman Sol had thought.

It was too late to turn back now, she knew. Ebony knelt into the water, keeping her head above the surface as she reached for and took hold of the shimmering object.

[color=black]Ebony’s hand wrapped around a most powerful and legendary staff:

Maelstr the Waker Staff
Maelstr is one of the seven legendary weapons that shaped the world of Gaia as it is today. It was wielded long ago by a woman known as The Gate Keeper; Solara Siegmund. It hums with a great power over the water element. It is a staff that gave Gaia the Emyrean Sea and had trapped a great foe within the sea.

The staff is made from a strange material of which the knowledge has died with Those Who No Longer Roam. It is approximately three feet in length and it is not made of metal or wood but of stone. It is not heavy as one would assume but very light for its Bearer. One cannot become the Bearer of Maelstr unless it is won fairly in a dual or if it decides to give itself to another.

The staff is colored several different hues of blue and green ranging from sea-foam and almost white to midnight blue and almost black. The colors are ever swirling and changing as the sea. It almost seemed as if a part of the sea is trapped within the staff itself but maybe it is a trick of the eye …

The staff will take whatever form that the Bearer wishes and is extremely malleable to their mind and Will. It is a very compromising weapon and yielding but as with the sea, Maelstr can be very fickle and rage unexpectedly. The staff grants elemental power over water and not just in being able to manipulate it. The wielder is able to conjurer water at his or her whim through the use of very little Will. The power of the Empyrean Sea lays at the hands of the Bearer which is great and powerful.

And yet there is always weakness that comes with weapons of power. The Bearer will become far more susceptible to fire magic and if used for a very long period of time, even the sun’s rays will become too much to bear. Maelstr also bonds very strongly with its Bearer’s emotions and eventually, their emotions will become one entity, and Maelstr will have partial control over its Bearer’s

Lifting the object out of the water, Ebony looked at the magnificent staff she held. This had to be what she had come for, what the Water Stone had led her to. She started out of the water, walking through it almost as if it were air. "This must have some power over water," she said to herself, staring at the staff. She looked towards the ocean, looking around the island. "Now, how do I get back? Which direction do I even go in?" Ebony decided that she should have asked that before she had taken the staff; now, she wasn't sure how was the best use of the staff's power to get herself off of the island.

Pointing the staff at the water, Ebony tried to manipulate it. She tried to push aside the water, make some sort of path. She closed her eyes to concentrate, and when she opened them again, she was startled to see that the water was parting wide enough for her to walk through. Even if she could do such, Ebony thought, would she even need to? Perhaps she could even walk on the water, or have it propel her... the possibilities with this magical artifact seemed to be unlimited.

Saxom was left standing on the dock, rope in hand. He rolled his eyes with a sigh. Some people…

Well, the sooner he started the sooner he finished. He gripped the rope tightly and hopped of the dock. His body flew through the air as he swung on the rope, bringing his knees to his chest. When he felt the bottom of his feet impact the side of the ship he started his climb.

When he slid over the banister onto the deck of the ship he lay flat on his back. “Aha, I did it!” He laughed loudly, trying to make a spectacle of himself to entertain the others. “Although I dint have much choice really! Fallin to my death woulda put a really dent in my life plans!”

"What have I gotten myself into, out of the frying pan and into the fire..."

Koufan slid further into the crow's nest, only the top of his hood visible from the deck. He was surprised that he'd been able to remain inconspicuous for so long, considering that humans were so distrusting of others. He chalked it up as a point for alcohol, nothing more. Especially considering how the woman had reacted the last time she'd seen him.

He closed his eyes and listened to the conversation below, however, wondering why she was choosing to set down in the Empyrean, rather than anywhere else.

Medya made a face at Jess as she turned back towards the other side of the boat. "I'm not talking to myself, I'm talking to..you know, what, never mind. You probably wouldn't understand it, even if I did explain it. Have fun with your man over there." Of course, all of this was mostly under her breath. Medya strolled towards the crow's nest, figuring she'd take the high view. She liked high places, and thus flew up towards the 'nest. As she reached the peak, she noticed a hooded figure, who she didn't recall boarding. Then again, original drunken Medya had been in control, and so she didn't remember much, period. "Hey there, stranger. What brings you to our wonderful ship?" Along with this overly sweet statement, Medya - Dee - prepared her both of her arms with the dark and light energy she used to fight.

Axinn gazed upwards towards his fellow Alneh. He had no clue who he was here for. But who ever it was, it was the Highmourn family's will, and he would not interfere. A smile crept to his lips, almost tangible. The wind felt glorious, he had to admit. He missed the storm of the Alneh Sanctum. Powerful, long-lasting, destructive, and yet beautiful.

"Good. While I have no intention of leaving any time soon, I do have a horse to attend to, and I really don't have associates that would come check on him if I was absent. As you said yourself, Jess Thresher, people do not take kindly to my kind."

Koufan pulled himself from his thought as the woman landed beside him, a pair of wings slowly fading away from her back. He thought she seemed familiar, something in the way she held herself, but he couldn't place it immediately, and thus it was put from his mind.

"Just a vagabond, nothin' more. Tryin' tah see the world a'fore my years catch me." He adopted the accent quickly, hoping to cover his native Alneh accent and keep himself above question, though it wouldn't matter much if his skin showed. He scooted over, making enough room for her in case she decided to sit with him.

"Yer free tah join me, if'n yah wan'ned to."

The first mate released the helm and began to shrug off her weaponry. Various smoke bombs dropped from inside the sash tied loosely around her hips. The sheath to her short sword came next and then Jess took off her gun holster. Unexpectedly, the pirate also released O’ulre and allowed it to fall onto the pile near her feet.

Honestly. Where did the woman hide everything? A few more knives dropped from underneath the sash as she took that off as well and hung it from the helm. Jess Thresher—notorious Gaian pirate—was left unarmed and only held a bottle of rum.

A faceless crew member came to her side and took the ship’s control with a simple gesture made from the woman.

“Don't ye worry. I shall get ye close t' th' border,” Jess said to the man in red and waved a dismissive hand. “I got business t' attend t' first afore we land at sea. Medya! keep a weather eye out. This one be new at th' helm!” Without even turning her eyes onto the Alneh at her side, Jess started to grope for a piece of his clothing at chest level as if attempting to grab him.

Dee-Medya stopped gathering her energy as the man began to speak. She seemed to recognize him, at least, drunken Medya in the back of her-their head said that he was familiar. In any case, his statement along with the recognition probably counted for something. She gave Koufan a wink. "Sorry bout that. I thought you might've come to hurt someone on the ship. What a ridiculous idea, eh? But a vagabond, huh? I can appreciate that." She stretched a bit before throwing an answer back to Jess. "Yes, yes, Mate Jess. I will do exactly that! Don't be too loud down there, now!" Dee-Medya gave a small snicker and settled down next to Koufan. "Hey, you don't mind keeping watch out for me, right? I'm gonna take a break. It's been a hard night." With that, she lied back against the wood and immediately fell asleep.

Well, there was his opening and the chance to succeed. Why wait? As Jess busied herself with Axinn, he made his way up the stairs to the helm. The moment the two would step away from the pile, he would spring into action. He just hoped the fall wasn't too long, because he planned to jump right over the edge after he grabbed that damn weapon.

For now, though, he leaned against a crate and watched Jess, Axinn and Saxom and waited for them to move off away from his prize.

Axinn almost snickered, as he had no clothes on his chest to grab, aside from the diagnol belt of throwing daggers. He helped guide her hand however, as he had nothing better to do. His mind was eerily calm, considering how most of his race would react. If the Cloak was watching him, he had no doubt that he was disgusted with Axinn. Not that he honestly care however. Anniversary of Birth. Time to celebrate. Make merry. Or in this case, as a human would say, 'Make Jess Thresher.' His smile only grew wider.
