There's No Way Out

There's No Way Out

(REVIVAL) Trapped in a new video game, a group of 5 adventurers from all over the world are forced to find their way through the video game, to the end, and to the life they left.

Introduction

Greetings, Summoner... What name will you carry to the Battle for the West?




Welcome to the fields of death. Create your champion.




An excellent choice. Godspeed upon the grounds; your death may be more than you think.






A voice is what welcomes you to the fields - one that welcomes you, and allows you to begin your journey towards a final battle. Though not extremely popular, Aramnia has a history of more players than they ever expected to sign up. Pleased with their success, they added a new patch to the original game; one that they said would enhance the game play itself.

In a beta testing, 5 people were chosen to create a group in the game, in order to adventure towards the Final Battle and to see how well they performed within the patch. What they didn't know was that this wasn't the same game - they were, indeed, within the game itself.

Aramnia is an unforgiving territory; once the players leave the beginning stages, they will truly have to fight for their life every step of the way if they are to make their destination, and make it out of the game.

Will they succeed? Or will they be another Summoner lost in the woods, claimed by the grounds of Aramnia itself?

(OOC: Sorry there's not much to it! I'm trying to multi-task with some of my school-work, and I'm trying to focus on everything. So please ask any and all questions!)

8:32 p.m, Kuo Suites, New York City, U.S.

Marina laid her head on her desk, yawning. She had just finished another long meeting - her father had given her another presentation to create, forgetting how much she dreaded them, or remembering and deciding to keep her from going to her school again. "I'll start it soon… I promise. Can I just go?" She wasn't sure if she even wanted to go to school at that moment, she had been in at least three meetings throughout the morning and she was tired of it.

She just wanted something else to do with her days. She wanted more than all of these meetings, endlessly lining up in her schedule. Maybe, when she finally got home, she'd get to working on the dress that she had been wanti-

"Marina, go home and sleep, sweetie. They really put you through the ringer this morning." Her friend Anna put a cup of coffee on her desk, giving her friendly smile and a chocolate muffin before going to wander through the office once more. Marina gratefully grabbed her food and coffee, needing no excuse to stay any longer.

Her father saw her leaving, but even as he yelled at her to stay, she knew he wouldn't fire her. After all, Marina was her father's best worker, even if she was his daughter. She may not like business, but she had the unfortunate habit of being good at it.

The train ride home was uneventful, and as she took the steps out of the metro station, the night air filled her lungs. She smiled, breathing deep, and decidedly walked towards her apartment door. After work, it was always nice to get home and breathe the night air, and just…relax. It seemed she never had the time to relax anymore.

Opening the door slowly, she found her Eledise sitting just behind the door, barking happily. Marina pushed her way past the puppy and closed the door, leaning down to hug Eledise. She was sitting on a package, and had to be pushed off it so that Marina could read what it said.

"Marina Kathleen LaRousse… Huh. No one uses the full thing anymore." She stared at it, but put it on the counter so that she could give Eledise her dinner, before turning back to the package. "Haven't ordered anything. So what…?"

She tore off the white package, and found her beta disc of Aramnia, complete with a letter from the company which was immediately thrown away. Her computer - always running, even when she left - was in the living room, and she quickly loaded her game, excited that she had been chosen. However many betas she had signed up for, she was never actually chosen.

"Come on, come on…" Marina breezed through the character creation screen, as she always did, quickly picking whatever looked nice and going with it. What came out was Favorin d'Aegis, a celestial being who was taller than she could ever hope to be, happily standing in the battle arena with her golden staff. She watched quietly as Favorin moved around the screen, randomly practicing spells and smiling the whole time.

Marina looked down at Eledise, and gave her dog a loving pet. She knew that she would be too absorbed in this game for the next few hours at least, and the poor dog never got much attention anyways, when she wasn't home. Her boyfriend never gave outside of what was necessary to anyone. Her eyes flitted back to the screen, and she pressed 'Enter World' with a happy laugh, before seeing black all around her.

Gezel


4:32pm, Anchorage Alaska, US

Gezel had been driving all day to get home. She had been at Mount Everest for a week hiking trip to the top. She had been saving up for the trip for awhile, and she was a little sad when it was over. It was a bittersweet parting for her, for now she knew she would be able to climb the himalayas. Hiking and climbing mountains was her career. She would go up and take pictures and videos for documentaries and companies advertisement. She was hired a lot for the simple fact that she was young and fearless. SHe could handle the climbs and wasn't afraid to explore.

Arriving home she sighed in relief. Her driving was done and she could go in and relax. She parked her car and all but sprang out of her car. She grabbed her mail and bounded up to the door almost tripping over the package there. It was labeled "Gezel Ann Grim". She picked it up and took it inside with her. Rifling through her mail she tossed the adds and sighted at the bills. "I didn't sign up for any of this adult business, twas all thrust upon me." she said to herself giggling. Setting them down on the counter she picked up the package from where she set it down on the floor.

Feeling an instant nudging at her legs she looked down to see Magic, her pet cat, and picked her up. "Alright you attention whore lets open it together. Maybe it's my new camera I ordered." She tore open the package and just stared at it for a second. It was a disc with the word Aramnia on it and a letter. She quickly glanced over the letter and just as quickly threw it away still trying to remember why she would have a game sent to her. She scratched Magics ear and then it clicked. "That's right Magic, Dan signed me up for the beta testing of the game, telling me I need more inside time." she laughed.

Grabbing the disc she walked over to her computer and booted it up. Within moments it was on and ready. She had to have a fast computer to edit and go through her photos. She placed the disc into the disc reader and waited for it to load. Starting up the game as Magic jumped into her lap she sighed. "Here goes nothing, wish me luck Magic. Wait I should text Dan let him know I got chosen and to come one in when he gets here." she said shooting him a quick message and turned back to the computer and started up the game. She had never played a game like this before so she took her time creating her character letting her imagination run wild. Her end result was Analia, a melee fighter. Pleased with her work she pressed enter world and everything went black.

Coming aware of her surroundings Analia patted her lap with the feeling that something should have been there. Shrugging it off she lifted her sword to finish polishing it up before she went into the arena to strengthen herself. She held Kill Rune close to her lovingly. It was a gift from her father when she set out from home in search of adventure. It was her familys sword and she wouldn't part with it until death took her or a young one of her own, when she had them, was worthy of it. Sighing she looked around town. She was waiting on something, though she couldn't put her finger on it.

"Huh." Elliot sat down on the couch and stared bemusedly at the white package on the table. Picking up the note left to him on the table, he quickly scanned it to figure out just what that package was.

"Bro, I kind of lost the letter which came with this thing, sorry about that." Elliot read aloud, frowning. There was a letter? Dammit, he really wanted to read the thing... Ah well, it wasn't like he could do much about that. Continuing, Elliot read on "I think it's the game you were going on about, though. The one you applied to beta test for. Or it's that package the teachers were going to send to you. If it's the game, congratulations..."

Lapsing off into silence as he continued to read (it was amazing how tiny his brother's handwriting could get), Elliot gave up reading the whole thing and placed it to the side. He'd read it later, after he was done checking the package out. Ripping the white wrapping apart with his hands, Elliot grinned when the game cover came into view. Yes!

He quickly took off the rest of the wrapping and deposited them on the table, placing the brand new game box next to it. For a moment, Elliot just stared, transfixed. It was the first time he had ever gotten a chance to beta for someone before, and he wanted to savour the moment. Then he shook his head and grabbed a pen, hastily scrawling thanks. It's your turn to buy dinner. on the back of the note his brother had written before gathering the remnants of the wrapping and going to the kitchen. Elliot quickly dumped the wrapping in the bin and placed the note on the fridge with a magnet, grabbing the new game and heading straight to his room directly afterwards.

Gripping the box in his hand, Elliot walked to his room and closed the door behind him. Taking a seat at his desk, Elliot switched on his laptop and opened the box, carefully taking out the Cd and placing it onto the computer's Cd drive. He didn't want to damage it, after all. Within ten minutes, Elliot had uploaded the game and was making his character.

Right, what should I do for my character? he quickly scrolled down the list of options, deciding to take care of his character's (right, he needed a name... How about Liotche? That sounded cool.) looks first. Elliot had already decided what type of class he was going to play in - a tank, for now - but what would his character's appearance be?

He was already playing a redhead in another game, so... Blonde. With green eyes, he'd always liked the colour. Hmm, that looked pretty good... Wait, what if he made the guy small? A sudden image of a midget earning the ire of the enemy flashed to mind, and Elliot grinned at the thought. Definitely doing that, it'd be really funny. he clicked on the height adjustment button, decreasing his character's height.

Right, body structure and appearance was done. Now off to clothes and weapons. Elliot didn't waste much time here. While he had been searching for Liotche's appearance, Elliot had also made sure to check up on the clothing and weapon options. He had already crossed out the outfits and weapons he felt wouldn't fit his character, and now only had a few designs left. After some deliberation, Elliot chose the outfit and weapon he wanted and looked at the final picture, checking to see if he wanted to change anything.

Elliot had chosen a knight motif, which left pretty much only one costume design, solving the dilemma of what outfit to choose. The weapons had caused him a bit more difficulty, but the moment Elliot had seen the broadsword he knew without a doubt that it was the weapon he wanted. It was pretty huge and a bit too elaborate for his taste, but it was the only design Elliot could find which matched Liotche's appearance, and now that he looked at the overall picture Elliot had to admit it wasn't really that bad. Still could've been less elaborate though.

Pleased with his character, Elliot stretched and cracked his knuckles. "Alright, let's go." He muttered to himself, and he clicked on the button labelled"Enter World".

7:32 p.m. New Orleans Louisiana, U.S.

His ears were filled with a wall of sound as his headphones produced staccato melodies accompanied by accented lyrical tones. And although his head was busy bobbing up and down in time with the music, his ears managed to detect a muffled knocking. Taking off the phones Mike peered at the door to his apartment with a raised brow. He certainly wasn't expecting visitors, he lived alone after all. Naturally he needed to investigate.

He looked through the peephole only to spy the same distorted vision of a wooden door on the other side of the hall, surrounded by a bland beige painted wall that was slowly being peeled off by time. Opening the door he was greeted by a small brown box covered in stamps, and a large sticker with something written on it. Mike squinted a little before he realized it was his full name penned by someone with terrible handwriting. Shrugging, he brought the package inside.

It certainly wasn't difficult to open, though Mike was quite curious about its contents since he hadn't ordered anything, and gave him a mild feeling anticipation. When the prize was finally revealed, the man had to stare at it for a moment, trying to decide whether or not this was real. He knew he signed up for the game, but to actually be chosen for the beta was at best a one in a million chance. Mike's jaw dropped a bit in astonishment, “Awesome!” he proclaimed.

He hadn't been this elated in a long time, and just couldn't wait to pop this sucker in. When the game loaded up his jaw became ajar once more, he had seen screenshots but they didn't do it justice. Mike's PC was built to handle most games, however it was no monster, yet with the graphics he was looking at he would have expected crap for framerate. “Must be optimized pretty well,” he muttered.

Mike spent quite a bit of time on his character tweaking everything just to his liking. He chose a member of the “Daefling” race, as he had always been attracted to “outsider” characters to play. As per usual he rolled a spellcaster, being that it was a new game he went with what was most familiar.

Not wanting to waste a second longer he clicked “Enter World”. That's when all sensation in his body ceased.

"Funny... I remember the Temple being on the left last time." Favorin stretched her arms above her head, yawning. The Arena was busy as usual - all of the new people, including herself, coming through only to find their way into the wilds - and she could see everyone's life path in front of them.

...Since when have I been able to do that? She thought for a while, and finding no logical explanation, decided to wander through the Arena herself. After all, what good was a shop without gold? There was nothing she could do for now, as she had spent all of her gold on a small snack earlier. "Celestial beings sure do get hungry...."

It was a glorious mess. She could see through the Arena's windows - layered in three levels, with windows like doors every three feet - the bright blue sky, waiting for her to reach up and return home. Though Favorin doubted that anyone would be waiting for her if she returned home. Everyone had left; they had let her alone, with her staff, and with a future before her.

Out of all the futures she had ever seen, the one she had never known was her own. No matter who in her clan shared her ability, they would never tell her the future that she held. None of them could have seen them. Whatever had she done, that no one else had, that could prevent her own life from being shown?

She was lost in her thoughts, stumbling around the townspeople, waiting for a purpose. Nothing had ever seemed right to her; she had always been waiting for someone to show her the path. And now, she had no one.

"I need something to get around faster." She would not be able to find anything, she knew, but couldn't a poor girl hope?

Favorin looked up just in time to stop herself from running into another woman. She stopped, staring at her hair, trying to puzzle what she was about. Her hair reminded her of a phoenix - long and running, with a fire-colored tint to it, Favorin felt a small envy come from the shade.

She looked closer, trying to see what she could not see. The halo around other people's heads - the one that showed their future, their past, their present - was gone. Missing, just as mine...

"Why are you here?" she whispered, leaning on her staff to get a closer look at Analia.

Analia looked up startled out of her semi trance, up at the woman in front of her. She studied her a minute hearing her whispered question "Why are you here?" It was an odd question for someone to ask her out of the blue. The sun had come out of cloud cover by then and her hair was shining, giving it a fiery look. She noticed the girl staring at it.


"Such an odd question but I shall answer it. To put it simply I'm here to battle in the arena, to grow a little stronger and sharpen my skills before setting out on my journey." she held out her hand to the curious looking woman with the staff. "The name is Analia. And you are?" She tilted her head to the side slightly still trying to size the woman up, to see what she hoped to gain, and maybe, just maybe, make a friend of her.

Favorin didn't quite realize how rude she had sounded until Analia responded. She blushed, backing up slightly, though there was nothing to do - she had to finish the conversation she now started. Of course, if she did something rude enough, would the other walk away? She wouldn't know. Unless she tried. But should she try?...

"I... That's not what I meant. Forgive me. My manners have failed me, spending much time in solitude." She stared at Analia's hand, and once she determined what she was supposed to do, slowly shook the other woman's hand. What a curious custom.

"Perhaps we have set off on the wrong edge, my friend. I am Favorin d'Aegis, formerly of the Stars, but I find myself with mortals today." She pondered for a second, trying to look for something else to say. "You are setting on a journey, you say? What destination do you have in mind?"

If she was lucky, maybe she would find someone else who was destined to be in the Battle for the West. The concept seemed nice to her - after such a long time that she had wandered alone, if she could truly find someone else who would fight with her, and for her.... Someone who would walk besides her, laugh with her...

Someone she could trust.

Someone I could call a friend.

She shook her head softly. She wouldn't get her hopes up. She quietly reminded herself that her future was a mystery, and for all she knew, she could die by a wild goat stabbing the next morning.

But, just maybe...

Analia smiled, her hope of making a friend had risen even higher, like the Himalayas. Wait a minute? what are the Himalayas? she pondered a moment to herself. Turning her full attention on Favorin her smile widened and her golden eyes sparkled "Ah a celestial one, It is a pleasure to meet you. I don't have much experience with magics but I have always wanted to see it done. As for my adventure, I'm not sure yet, I had planned on going wherever the wind would take me as they say."

She looked around and up at the sky thinking of something else to say. Maybe she would accompany me, it might be fun, heck she might even have a destination or quest. Taking a deep breath trying to gain confidence she spoke to Favorin. "Maybe you could join me? It might be fun even. You can pick where we go, I don't mind." she said all in one breath.

Liotche snapped out of his daze, straightening up and glancing around him. He was surrounded by people, and he seemed to have been about to walk straight into a cart directly in front of him. Liotche turned around and began to walk around the cart, bringing a hand to his throat as he did so. He could've sworn that there should've been something hanging from his neck, but all Liotche could feel was his collar. Shaking it off, he turned and moved forward, his hand reaching down to touch the scabbard of his sword, Pep.

Liotche was finally out of his village, off to see the world. However, he needed more training, so he was off to the arena, which was somewhere in front of him. He still wished he had a shield, but for now, his scabbard would do. Liotche looked down at his sword, frowning. He had doubts about it when he saw the scabbard, but then he noticed that if he pressed the gold and blue shield thing on the scabbard, the yellow hexagons going down the scabbards faded away, causing it to look much plainer and less eye catching. The person who made the sword had apparently thought the same as Liotche did and had made it easy to disguise.

Pep was currently in it's disguised form, and strapped to his side, the only heirloom he had. Liotche looked up and snapped out of his thoughts, increasing his stride. He had bee walking for quite a while now, and he could see the arena in the distance. Liotche eagerly sped up, ready to begin his training and become a better swordsman.

"Maybe you could join me? It might be fun even. You can pick where we go, I don't mind."

If she had a heart, it would have stopped at that moment. Truly? A mortal had requested the company of a celestial? She could think of nothing that would convince her, had she been Analia, to ask for her company. However, she was not going to say no, for she needed the company if she was to ever survive the battle.

She lifted her staff, and whispered an old phrase of her clan. It was meant to say something like "My wish is now yours," and was said when there was a promise which they were to make. Out of her staff, there was a silent shower of stars, falling through the air like glittering snow. She smiled, and looked back to Analia.

"I am going to fight in the final battle. The Battle for the West." She rested her staff against the ground, using it to help her walk for a few steps. "It has been long ago fore-told that we must win this Battle in order to maintain the realm in which we now live. We must win, or else we will loose all that we hold dear to us, and the realm will be fallen to shadow, if any of us remain standing."

Favorin took another few steps, turning around to face Analia. "If it is truly your desire to follow me, I will not say that you cannot. Know, however, that the road we will take will be long - and I fear there is no turning back, for it will be dangerous. And, of course, if you should so choose to follow me, we will need others to follow us as well."

She smiled softly, her eyes glimmering with the promise of adventure that she had always wanted. "Will you follow me, Analia, and find the adventure you have so longed for?" She held her hand out, smiling warmly.

"Boring"


Maxwell uttered this word while looking up at the orange sky, It was sundown, His favorite part of the day, Maxwell sighed as he glanced at his watch. "5:22...". Maxwell stood up, looking around for his bike. As Maxwell pedaled home he thought about what he was going to do when he reached his destination, "Ugh...I can't shoot, My bow is in the shop for repairs" A few hours ago, Maxwell used the bow as a club to fend off delinquents after school, "Such a drag...Is was their fault, they swung first..." Thought Maxwell as his brown 2-story home came into view.

Something was different though, There seemed to be a package at his doorstep. Confused, Maxwell parked his bike into the garage and zoned in on the package, "Obviously, This couldn't be his fixed bow, However Maxwell decided to bring the oddly decorated package inside.

His parents were asleep. "Typical..." muttered Maxwell. Maxwell silently closed the door as he walked upstairs to his room. Maxwell let out a sigh of relief, as he grabbed a pair of scissors and went to work opening the box.

"Maxwell Arcus" Maxwell read out loud, "It's pretty unprofessional for it to be handwritten", but to be honest, this whole situation is unprofessional. Maxwell tore open the box, stunned at the disc that resided within it. "A video game?", Maxwell glanced at the desktop computer sitting on top of his desk, "Video games are for little kids" Thought Maxwell, But Maxwell quickly changed his mind as he stared at the packet of math homework that was located across from the computer. Maxwell pushed the packet aside thinking "Well, I will do it later". Maxwell inserted the disc into his computer, and started the game

"Character creation, Huh.." Muttered Maxwell as he chose the features on his champion, He scrolled through the classes until one caught his eye, Archer, Maxwell quickly clicked it and customized his character, just putting on the things that looked good. He then named his champion Arcedies Silverfang. He then let out a sigh of relief and clicked "Enter World". "Things just got interesting" Said Maxwell under his breath, as his screen faded to black.

It was slipping from him, whatever it was he knew it was important. The more he concentrated trying to recall it though the further it got away from. All he knew for certain was the feeling of everything being simply wrong. Tyrin's face visibly seemed to strain from the effort, but eventually the feeling had nearly dissipated completely to the point where Tyrin now wondered why he was standing in one spot for no apparent reason.

Wait, where was he standing anyway?

Tyrin looked around, seeing simple folk going about their business around a massive elliptical structure- the Arena- he remembered. That's right, he'd heard that this place boasted a great market of items such as spell tomes. No, that's not... he pondered. Why did that feel more like a justification than a reason? Like he was remembering something wrong. Yet again however this feeling subsided as he began to browse the area, though trying to be discreet of course. After all Daeflings weren't exactly welcome in most places.

After a while Tyrin found himself disappointed by the selection of wares most of the vendors had, nothing of interest to him. He did however two individuals that seemed to stand out from the crowd. One was a fiery haired woman that seemed particularly well armed for a simple patron, more likely she was an arena participant. The other with her though, seemed to hold herself much differently, like she was in alien surroundings yet had an odd eagerness about her.

They seemed to be holding a conversation, though Tyrin couldn't make out what was said. It was just as well he supposed, not really his business anyway . Rather deliberately he walked around them, as although he couldn't be sure, they seemed like adventuring types. And adventuring types were often curious of mysterious figures that took a full moment observing them.

Smiling Analia took her hand. "I shall follow you, to help and I'll have the adventure I seek." looking around her eyes finally rested on a knight looking fellow. "Come on, I think I found another we can recruit to your cause Favorin. Who better to help than someone who looks like a knight!" she said excitedly and pulled Favorin with her towards Liotche.

Catching up to him sh tapped his shoulder. "Umm excuse me might we have a word with you?" she said smiling. She had her path set before her and there was no way she was going to give it up now.

"It's cold..."


"I may be resistance to the snow, But that doesn't make me unable to feel it" Arcedies studied his surroundings. He seemed to have forgotten something he shouldn't have. Arcedies looked to his right, faced with the katana lying beside him, He then looked up at the sky, Poorly covered with a blanket of white, The moon was barely visible. Arcedies reluctantly got up, "If I am going to meet new people, I might as well get rid of old habits". "Niveus!" called Arcedies as a blur of black knocked him back into the snow, he faced the hyperactive wolf and said "Time for breakfast!"

Chunk! "Bulls-eye!" yelled Arcedies as the deer was brought to the ground in one swift motion. Arcedies snapped his fingers and the beautiful silver longbow faded into particles, "I caught a big one!" pridefully exclaimed Arcedies as he triumphantly strolled over to his prize, picked it up and headed to his campsite. After cooking and cleaning the specimen, The meal was devoured in minutes by the help of The white haired man and Niveus. Arcedies, licking his fingers after the meal, Got up and threw the leftovers to his wolf, swung his pack over his back and headed down the mountain.

Arcedies watched in awe as sights he never seen before came into view, Bridges, Grass and people stunned The white haired man, Finally reaching the big city. Arcedies then climbed onto a nearby building, Niveus following closely behind, Arcedies was awe-struck at seeing all these exciting things, However a small group of people caught his eye, "Two knights...and a type of person I have never seen before, Wow the city does bring interesting people". His eyes drifted away to a large Colosseum. Curious, Arcedies jumped down from his hiding place, landing with a loud thud and pointed to the rocky structure, People that were walking back and forth glanced at him as he exclaimed
"I have found my destination, Large rock thing, Here I come!"

Liotche examined the items the merchant had displayed with a frown. He had finally reached the arena, and since this was his first time there Liotche had decided to check out the vendors before entering for training. He was curious to see what they were like, and he wondered if they were like the shops in his village. So far, it seemed like they were, but there were less wares to choose from, which was understandable. On the other hand, Liotche could find items which he was pretty sure he couldn't find in shops.

Such as this necklace, for instance. Liotche stared down at it, frowning even harder. It was a pendant in the shape of a spiral which seemed to be made out of sparkling dark blue rock, smooth and cool to the touch. It was attached to a large steel chain, and it was really pretty. Liotche was pretty sure that if he had found one at a shop in his village, he would've seen if he could've afford it and bought it to give to his brother as a birthday present, his bro always liked shiny things like this.

Wait. He didn't have a brother, he was an only child. If he did have one, Liotche wouldn't be here trying to improve his skills - he would've been back in the village staying with the guy. Dismissing that train of thought, Liotche straightened up and turned away, wandering away from the vendor into the crowd. He had no reason to buy a necklace, and it didn't suit his tastes anyway.

Liotche had onto taken a few steps away from the stall when someone tapped him on the shoulder. He turned around, curious to see who it was. Maybe it's someone I know?

Nope, it was only two girls, one with a broadsword and the other with a staff. Liotche had never seen them in his life. Maybe they wanted to ask for directions to the arena? Well, he couldn't help them there, he was new to the place as well. When the girl with the broadsword smiled and asked whether they could have a word with him, Liotche blinked in surprise. "Um, sure." He said, wondering what they wanted.

"Come on, I think I found another we can recruit to your cause Favorin. Who better to help than someone who looks like a knight!"

Favorin let herself be dragged along, and as she followed Analia, she couldn't help but giggle. Such a care-free place to be; and to have friends, it was such a joyous place to be. It reminded her of a life that she used to have; one that she never truly had the chance to do what she wanted to do, and now she had the chance to do what she wanted to do.

Haven't I always been able to? I left the Heavens on my own whim... When have I ever not been able to? She shook her head softly, and continued to run after Analia with a smile on her face. When at last they met the knight, she couldn't help but giggle as his history flashed before her. She saw the small child running alongside his grandmother, and she bowed deeply to him, rising slowly.

"Um, sure."

"We have a...quest. A quest that we are both destined to go on, one that I fear is crucial to this realm. For if we fail, the realm will surely fall." She looked to Analia for a moment, and back to Liotche. This was the reason that her clan never sent her on negotiations. "I look at you, and I see that you, as well as us, have no destiny set."

"We cannot do this quest alone. While I first thought I would be alone in the Battle, there are many in this arena, that would join us in our quest. I extend the peace to you, dear knight - our quest is to travel to the Battle of the West. This will set the destiny of the realm. While there will be many tribes who may join us in the fight, champions are required to do what they cannot."
She smiled at him, her head raising slowly with an old pride. "I can see that you, too, are also longing for an adventure. After all, who of us in this arena are not? And thus, I ask you, friend, will you join us in this Battle? I cannot promise you will walk away from it. I can, however, promise you that it will be an adventure worthy of the stars."

She did not mention that she had no wish for adventures anymore; a small part of her was longing for the home that she did not know of. One in which she led a different life...

Liotche raised a sceptical eyebrow at the girl with the staff when she talked about a... Complete-Destruction-Of-The-World quest, but listened to her without a word and considered it seriously. His face gained a serious frown as thoughts about what she said ran quickly through his head, and he stood there, silent in thought.

What he was thinking was: Why me? I come here to train and then set out to get better at using swords and then some chick approaches me to recruit me for a quest to save the world. And what does she mean, 'I have no set destiny'? She can see destinies? What the hell? Maybe she's a scammer or something, Mrs Johnson always told me that the city has lots of conmen out for your money or worse. The whole "fight with me to save the world from evil" thing sounds fishy, but Staff Girl seems genuine...

And then he thought: ok, let's say it's true. That means that something evil is coming and that it's really powerful and that she wants me to join up with her to defeat it, since there're restrictions on the tribes or something so they can't do it. I'm just a guy with a sword as old as the times trying to get better at using it, so there's a higher possibility that I'll die if I do this, joy of joys. However, if I don't do it there's a higher chance that the world as I know it is gonna change for the worse. Hmm. Tough decision.

Well, she was asking for his help and if there was evil coming to destroy the place, his village would be affected too, which Liotche wouldn't stand for. And he was planning to travel (not searching for an adventure) to improve his swordsmanship anyway, so it would probably help him if he travelled in a group. And she did say that it would be exciting, which meant that there was a higher chance of increasing his skills...

Coming to a decision, Liotche looked up at the two girls with a sigh. "You really need to work on your sales pitch, but I'm in. You'll probably need more people, though. You want to try that guy next?" He asked, pointing at a person dressed in a robe. (Basically, Tyrin).

Analia smiled brightly. "It couldn't hurt. Oh, by the way, you have a beautiful sword." she grabbed their hands and rushed towards the man in robes that Liotche pointed out. Excitement was on her face as she approached him and tapped on his shoulder.

"Excuse me sir, might we please have a word with you?" her golden eyes were shining and the wind had blown her hair to the right. She let go of the two in her party's hands and extended her hand. "I'm Analia, just hear us out please?"

"You really need to work on your sales pitch, but I'm in." She blushed softly, knowing he was right. Again, the precise reason her clan never sent her on reconnaissance missions... "You'll probably need more people, though. You want to try that guy next?"

Her eyes had just found Tyrin, but Analia was faster. "It couldn't hurt." Favorin let herself be pulled along, not wanting to cause any problems, though she felt that Analia was much too energetic for her to handle. Perhaps when they were fighting down a river, against a horde of orcs, her enthusiasm would be appreciated... but she would rather find one of her elders sitting atop a pillar of reason at that point.

Beyond that, she watched Tyrin carefully, trying to see what he was watching. As far as she could tell, he had been watching them first, but she could make no such judgement yet. "Perhaps you may be of interest to this quest. For I can see that you have already taken a budding curiosity in us." If she had any chance at all, she would leave the talking to Analia.

The morning had already scared her well enough. She had found two people to join her quest in what seemed to be just short of a few minutes, and while they may all be there to search for an adventure, she had highly doubted the chance that so many people randomly join them. Then again, many things had been confusing her of late...

Damn, Tyrin mentally cursed. He had been right of course they definitely had to be adventuring types, no other kind of person who looked like they do would bother. The man wasn't looking forward to turning around, for as soon as he did they would give him the “look” once they had an unobstructed view of his face. It didn't matter if it was a farmer, a priest, or a small child, the reaction was almost always the same. Tyrin just had that effect on people.

He turned, and the gaze of man with clearly inhuman eyes fell on his inquirer. His expression was that of expectancy. “Very well, what is it that you want?” he asked. He half expected them to “pardon” themselves before quickly finding something that was infinitely more intriguing that holding a conversation with a demon man. “And before you ask, no, I don't eat babies. That would be disgusting.”

She watched carefully as Tyrin turned around. Something about him told her that he was not interested in speaking with them, though she would hold her ground against him, knowing that while he may not join th-

Wait. He's...kind of like me.

"Forgive me, friend, I had not meant to offend you." Almost immediately after he had turned around, she dropped into a bow, her knees just about gracing the ground. She arose slowly, listening to him. "And before you ask, no, I don't eat babies. That would be disgusting."

Favorin hid a disgusted look herself, frowning. "That would be beyond disgusting. An inexcusable act for those of us who breathe and claim to stand for good." She blinked softly, watching him. His history made her suck in a sharp breath, the soft heart that her clan had claimed to have suddenly wounded.

"You have no reason to trust me... I see that you hold hatred. The stars have blessed you with the strength to carry through this. You will no doubt be of great help in our quest." She was whispering softly, barley aware that she was speaking. Her voice trailed off into a soft mumble as she lowered her eyes, speaking of the magics she had learned, while forgetting that she was to be working on recruiting.

"I am on top of the world!"


Climbing a small house in the outskirts of the Arena was nothing compared to climbing all the way up here, On the top of the large Colosseum. He felt the cold breeze on his neck and made a smile. Arcedies looked down at the people inside, "Hmm...It seems people take things very seriously here" "Ah what would Pops say if he saw me up here". A flashback of his father scolding him for doing something unwise in the past scarred his mind. "Yeah, He would probably not be very pleased. But who cares, He's not even here.

Arcedies looked outside into the distance, The mountains where he was raised came into view, "Wow, Getting this far is a task only someone as amazing as me could achieve, Not Bad, Not bad Indeed if I do say so myself". Arcedies decided to lay down. While on his back, He looked up at the blue sky covered with clouds, The sun shone down on the armor he was wearing. He looked at Niveus, The black hound was in a deep slumber. "The sky looks more beautiful here then in the mountains..". Arcedies quickly got up and exclaimed "Wait I forgot, I should probably meet new people, instead of just look at the sky as always" Arcedies thought about how he promised to himself to make new habits. Arcedies looked down inside the Colosseum and said "And what better way to make new friends then in combat!"

Tryin's stance betrayed genuine surprise by the reaction he got. That baby comment was meant as a snide remark about a common phrase he was used to hearing about himself. However not only did she take the comment for what it was, she saw the truth behind it. In fact she seemed to have an innate ability to see through him as well. Tyrin hadn't had a person disarm him like that since...Mother...

A closer look at her revealed something he felt he should have picked up on earlier. Though of human shape, she clearly wasn't that. Her speech, her posture, even her eyes were a dead give away. An elemental perhaps? No, their attributes are far more overt. Certainly isn't elvish. Thinking on it, the man found it best to readdress them.

With an exhale he spoke, “I... I mean, lets try that again. They call me Tyrin Raxius. No doubt you've gathered I'm a mage either wise you wouldn't approach me for a quest. You'll have to forgive my lack of manners, most people I meet offer me very little of that.”

He paused for a moment before continuing, “You have my attention, although I'll need more specifics about this task before I agree to anything. Also, if I may be candid, what exactly are you? I've seen many different races in Aramnia, but haven't encountered an instance of your kind. I can tell for certain it isn't human.”

(OOC: So sorry this is late! I had a really busy week-end with band. :c I wasn't really home too much to post this. Sorry again!)


Perhaps I have found more friends than I would have originally asked for. Ancestors bless me, I never would have thought...

Favorin gave a smile to him. She was more than happy that he was considering joining her, as she knew that she would need his help. Such powers would be invaluable to her, and while she did have such herself, she knew that above all she needed someone to be like her. She needed his help more than anyone else's.

"They call me Tyrin Raxius. No doubt you've gathered I'm a mage either wise you wouldn't approach me for a quest. You'll have o forgive my lack of manners, most people I meet offer me very little of that." She bowed her head in accordance, knowing many stories of the mortals who would walk over their own mother's corpse before lending aid to others.

"...Also, if I may be candid, what exactly are you?"

Favorin stiffled a giggle. She had certainly never heard anyone be so forward, let alone one who did not know of the celestial beings. Though, after such a long time in the heavens, is such a concept so bizarre? Certainly not. Humor me, Tyrin...

"My elders have blessed me with the name of Favorin d'Aegis. My race is known by many names; celestials, star-walkers, or simply spirits of another kind." She sighed softly, deciding to explain the quest herself, knowing how horrible that would be. "Forgive me for being indelicate with this, as I fear I was never meant to be the one to speak. I was not granted with such gracefulness.

"Our quest is one of great peril. I cannot say that you will make it alive; for not even I can see that future. It remains hidden to us all, as does the outcome of this Battle - The Battle for the West, the one that will mark all of our lives. For if we fail,"
she paused to gesture around at the Arena, "This will no longer be. The shadows will take this land and if there is a soul alive to see it there will be much peril.

"I cannot say that I know how to lead us. I cannot say that I know where this quest will take us; or when we will fight. All that I know is that we will fight alongside the many tribes who have sworn themselves to this quest, and that we will need all help we can get."
She looked at Tyrin. Truly looked at him - staring into his eyes, she bowed her head softly. "Will you join us? There will be no hatred should you decline; I daresay, I find myself want to return to the stars."

Analia smiled and held out her hand to Tyrin. "Hi, I'm Analia. It's a pleasure to meet you! Even if you don't decide to help us." her golden eyes were warm and friendly as they always were. Her excitement was a contagious thing and she was practically exploding with it.

I'm making frends. Real friends, that I can call my own. she thought to herself, her smile never wavering. This is almost as good as my new camera I'm waiting on. wait, what is a camera? she thought to herself.
