Chapter 3: Botana and Beyond
 Group admin 
It had been a long and tiring morning for the Agori: after they had taken leave of the Helgran Village, they found themselves having to traipse all the way through the great Helgran steppe lands. The midday sun beat oppressively on their backs and the tall grass chafed at their thighs; the Agori on foot had to lift their legs high into the air in order to navigate through this dense, leg high forest; even Pontel’s cart had difficulty navigating through the dense foliage, jolting violently against the course terrain. There was also great care not to tread in anymore anthills, given that a few of the members already had to stop in order to brush off these resilient and hostile insects.

Spirits were generally low, and an atmosphere of exhaustion was palpable amongst the group; very few people spoke, but instead merely huffed upon every exertion; the only voice that sounded joyfully over the others was Beowulf, who sung at the top of his lungs in a deep, quivering baritone.

“…Sixty bottles of beer on the wall, sixty bottles of beer! You take one down and pass it around, fifty-nine bottles of beer on the wall…!”

Merimies sighed long and deeply; getting off of Botana was supposed to be the easy part of the mission…

"Will you shut it Beowulf!" Joven griped almost pleading with slender warrior.

"you've been singing that song since we left Helgran! and by this time we gotta be at..." Joven looked around not recognizing any of the terrain surrounding him, he turned to Merimies "where are we exactly?"

Tuhinga sat in Pontel's cart, exasperated. He was tired, and hot. Very hot. "Urgh," He moaned, "I can't stand the heat..." He looked over at the others and asked, "Any idea how much farther?"

Pikau hiked his Backpack up higher and ploughed on, trailing behind the others. The ants hadn't bothered him, due largely to his excellent skill at avoiding them, but the sun and his Pack were. This wasn't his first long hike, but it was the first with so much equipment to carry.

He had hoped a herd of Gukk would pass by, but no luck. Pikau sighed. His favorite part of journeys was watching all the creatures you'd find along the way, but that seemed impossible with the large company stomping and huffing and scaring everything away.

Pikau resolved that if he wanted to make any discoveries on the Mainland, he'd have to be well in front of the thundering mob that was his companions. Taking a deep breath, he hitched up his giant Pack again and forced his tired legs into a jog, pushing ahead in the crowd.

"you've been singing that song since we left Helgran! and by this time we gotta be at..." Joven looked around not recognizing any of the terrain surrounding him, he turned to Merimies "where are we exactly?"

"We are... *huff huff* ...nearing the inner precipice of the... *huff* Eastern Steppes... *huff* ...Master...!" Merimies finally answered, exerting a great amount of energy in doing so. He spent even more energy pointing towards a faded line of trees in the distance, themselves rippling under the heat.

"You see that... horizon off in the distance?" he continued, "...we need only pass through that dense of foliage... *huff* ...and we will have passed over into the Terengua region... we will have yet more travelling to do after that... *huff* *huff* ...but hopefully the climate will be slightly more... *huff* ...hospitable... *huff huff*"

He turned around with great force to nod at Tuhinga, to affirm whether he had answered his question also.

Meanwhile, Beowulf was still booming away at the back of the crowd; great hikes such as these seemed to be very familiar to the jolly giant, perhaps even fun to him.

"Okay that's it!" Pontel said, being bored out of his mind. Jumping of the cart he told his Caneen to stay on its current course with the group. Yelling he said, "Beowulf, can't you sing somthing else?! You have already been through three million bottles of beer on the wall!!" Pontel got an idea, he ran and grabbed a barrel he had in his cart, hooked some chains up to it, and the attached the other ends of the chains to a pole, one chain coming off each side of the poll. Pontel called his Trelek down off the cart, upon which it had been resting the intire time. He put the metal pole in his Treleks mouth, so the barrel would be dragged behind him. "Now," Pontel said up to the occupants of his cart, "if I don't return from this, you will either find me at the docks.. or you will have been saved the trouble of having to bury me." With that Pontel got into the barrel feet first, the hole in the barrel facing away from the Trelek. Pontel moved the lid back in place, but left it slightly open for air. He pounded in the barrel.. and the Trelek took off full speed tunneling, with Pontel in a barrel being pulled into the Tunnel behind the Trelek...

The Trelek bury up out of the ground a ways in front of the cart, Pontel soon following. Pontel looked slightly green as if he was going to be sick. "That was worse... much much worse..." before Pontel got back into the cart, he had to get all the dirt off of him, once the dirt was finally removed he got back into the cart and took the reins, Oclavis now on the far left.

The caravan of carts and trailers formed a long, wavy line. Anake, somewhere in the middle but still close to the front followed behind Beowulf. He nearly started singing with him, sitting there, bored out of his mind.
"You know, beowulf has a point. The most important part of survival and adventure is your attitude. If your mood is crap, so is everything else you do." stated anake

Pikau's jogging has placed him much closer to the cart, and he catches the girl's statement.

"Actually," he wheezes, "the color of the armor doesn't matter too much for people, because any extra heat is lost before it hits the skin. The problem is the armor--" Pikau stops to gasp for air before rushing to catch up to the cart. "No airflow."

“One bottle of beer on the wall, one bottle of beer. Take it down pass it around, your outstanding balance is three thousand Gil!”

For the first time, Beowulf had finished his ballad during a march. Despite the feeling of accomplishment, the completion of the beer song leaves a hole in his heart, one that cannot be filled by simply resuming the song, nor satiated by the prospect of combat against the Tar. He needed another long tale to tell, one even grander than the beer song. Perhaps the fate of Nate the Snake would be an apt successor.

Beowulf’s musing is cut short as he noticies the terrain begin to change. The steppe grass had begun to give way to sand, and the faint sound of gulls chirping was carried by slightly salty air. Invigorated, the warrior marches ahead of the group, climbing atop a dune to get a better view of his surroundings.

Before him, laid the vast expanse of the northern beach, perfectly flat and white, save for the glittering crown of the port of Terengua. Enthused, he turns around to shout the good news the the rest of the party.

“I can see Terengua from here! It’s still a ways away, but we’re nearly there!” To eager to wait for his companions and unfazed by the distance already travelled, he marches on to the coastal city, his long strides carrying him faster than even Pontel’s cart.

He was about to grab his Pack when Pontel and Beowulf begin speeding up. "Oho, is that a race? And you didn't invite me?" Leaving the Pack in the cart(no sense making his competitors' job easier), Pikau breaks into a dead run, and begins to barely outpace the other two.

"No. Mages tend to fight unarmed because it is possible to direct energy with your hands. It isn't necessary though, your mind is where the power comes from and is directed. You might consider ward spells, they're easy to institute and can be put on your weapons and armor before battle. A well placed ward might deflect an attack or keep you from harm. Malaclypse, one of the founders of our order, was so heavily warded that any damage done to him would be inflicted on the attacker. He was murdered many times only to have the murderers die themselves."

Jovens spirits were lifted with Beowulf's discovery of the nearby village and that Beowulf had stopped singing, and thus he began to pick up his pace.

He had only been to Terengue once, and all he could remember was his distaste of boats, Joven was not one to enjoy going on to a large wooden bowl surrounded by water..... especially since he can't swim.

Darian sat at the port in Terengua village. His thick, muscular legs hung heavily off the side of the decking. After arriving to Kahkan and being briskly turned away, he feared he had missed his shot at this venture, and had dashed any chance of saving his family. However, after tirelessly hitching rides (with or without the riders knowledge) and a lot of running, he had finally made it to Terengua...with no sign of the party Krickarr had sent off.

Darian sighed heavily. Had they gone off without him? The salty air full of bustle was certainly better than that of the foulness of garbage and burnt rubber he was so used to at 'home.' With another shake of the head, he decided he'd stick around just a little longer, surely he would have heard if a dozen or so agori passed through and left Botana.

The party were now heading ever closer towards the Terengua shore, abandoning the tall grass for a softer, sandier terrain; clouds were beginning to float on over from the shore, promising shelter from the sun's blistering rays.

This change of environment served to lift the Agori's spirits, though Merimies walked with apprehension: he had not visited the Terengua village in a very long time, not since his migration into the Nightmare Woods, now so long ago. The village remained intensely familiar to him, yet the thought of retuning filled Merimies with bitter hate. He felt nothing but contempt for the lowly Terenguans, an ugly reflection of what he truly was.

This is not to mention the reason why he had left the village in the first place, the dire event that has remained etched in his soul ever since: the day he first drew blood. For these reasons and more, Merimies wished for quick and easy passage off of Botana, with as little required interaction as possible.

After a few more minutes of quiet trekking, the crew finally reached the gates of Terengua, which were and always have been open; the village was entirely wooden, a large, sprawling catwalk suspended slightly over the sand. They needed only to navigate through the village to reach the world-renowned, forever bustling Terengua Docks.

Merimies' tone suddenly reverted at the sign of this escalating aggression, and sought to diffuse the situation;

"Master Beowulf, please!" he beseeched the towering warrior, "we do not want a situation here... put him down, and we shall resolve this calmly!"

After Beowulf's reluctant compliance, Merimies turned to Rakau:
"What is this 'Black Top' that you speak of? We are departing to stop the impending Tar of Sur'kosh... I do not know if it is this disease that you speak of, or something else entirely." he said curtly to the lean Agori, sincerely hoping that it was the latter, and that they would not have to share a boat with this madman.

Pikau winced at the sound of cutting rope as if he'd been cut himself. He fell to his knees, holding the shredded pieces of his whip. This whip had been with him for more years than he'd been at the Ha'shuan Gardens, and had helped him tame hundreds of animals. Now it was useless.

"The Tar takes many forms," Merimies began, in a somewhat performative way as to hopefully scare Rakau off, "though its profanity is instantly recognisable- it takes an Agori's body and twists it, breaks it, melts it in a grotesque masquerade of mutilation. Whatever nightmarish, unholy form it takes, you can be guaranteed that it will be dripping with a black, oily pus that enshrouds any one of these abominations... one touch and you shall become like it- suffocated, contorted and ripped asunder. Be wary, for this is not any random sea creature that we speak of... this beast is to be tackled by warriors alone!"

"Ah, that'd be Black Top then! Onward! Let us destroy Black top together! To the boat you land lubbers!" Rakau said in an adventurous voice

(OoC: don't leave em behind :P)


Beowulf looked down at the pair of false legs he now held. A mixture of emotions churned inside him. On one hand, he had sworn to use his strength for the general good. On the other, he was beginning to take a dislike to Rakau. Slowly, he looked at the other members of the party, a devilish light emanating from his eyes.

“My vow as a warrior of the people says I must serve the interests of those who cannot defend themselves,” he announces. Suppressing his urge to chuck the legs into the sky, he looks specifically at Merimies, and with a devilish smile, plucks up a spider that had been lounging on a web on the roof of the nearest building. He carefully rests the insect inside one of the legs, before wrapping them up to prevent its escape.

“Now that that's out of the way, I’m going to go see if I can give Pikau a hand with repairing his whip. Having killed many leathery beasts myself, I do know a thing or two about whipmaking. Or at least, about recognizing which types of leather catch the eye of whipmakers as they try to scam you out of your catch.”

Merimies caught sight of Beowulf sliding the spider into the disembodied legs; it took considerable effort not to break into laughter or smiling, but nevertheless, Merimies kept his composure; if there was one thing he had learned in the strict halls of Kahkan it was self-restraint.

He was glad to see the appearance of Aronamus at this time- he was worried the poor archer had been lost in the ensuing confusion, but fortunately his tracking skills were to be commended.

He eyed Beowulf as he bounced from person to person, socialising with all of them with great fervour; though he was initially wary of the great brute, based on his boisterous entrance back in the Kahkan Village, he found himself beginning to warm to this tan-coloured warrior.

"I need to replace this." Pikau states flatly, placing the ruined remains of his whip on the counter, "Either a new whip, or the tools and supplies to make one will do."

"Whip, eh?" The shopkeeper scratched his chin in thought. "Yeah, I might have some things in the back" He turns and disappears into a dimly lit backroom.

“You find a new whip yet, eh?” Beowulf says relatively quietly, an oddity for the normally boisterous warrior. Pikau turns to watch as Beowulf strolls around the tannery, occasionally stopping to examine a boot or jacket. He picks up a pair of hiking boots and partially inverts them to show the seams to Pikau.

“You see the stitching here? The way it’s just popped through two pieces as it goes along the edge? It might be fine for showing off at a party in Ha’shuan, but it’s gonna fall apart quite quickly if you try and actually hike in it.” He reverts the boot and returns it to the shelf, next to its mirror twin. Still looking through the store’s wares, he continues to critique the quality of each good.

“Poorly attached buttons, weak seams, and this,” He pulls a jacket off a mannequin. Peeling apart a layer of leather towards the bottom, he rubs his finger along the dried sinews. “Still slightly moist, suggesting that it’s both a new item, and that whoever made it was too eager to sell it to let it tan properly. Great if you want parasites and leather rot.” He returns to browsing through the shelves while still talking to Pikau.

“You know, I worked for a tanner for a while. Was never great at it, but he gave me an eye for recognizing poor craftsmanship like this, an I know enough to tan a hide better than some of these. In fact, the quality of these goods reminds me that I’ve got a buckskin on me from a kill a while ago. While I’d normally sell it off to a tanner better than me, or this one, I’d happily give it to you if you want. I’m sure the two of us could turn it into a mean whip, and hopefully less prone to unwarranted cutting.” Beowulf flashes a friendly smile to Pikau as the shopkeeper returns from the back room, carrying a number of his whips.

“Well, I’m off to the nearest tavern to stock up on party supplies for the voyage. Lemme know which whip you decide on.” With that, Beowulf exits the store, humming a marching tune as, despite his height, he vanishes into the bustling streets.

Pikau is wondering how Beowulf can conceal an entire buckskin on his person when the shopkeeper plops the whips down on the counter. "There ya go, best in stock."

With eyes honed by Beowulf's commentary, Pikau studies each whip. Some are better than others, but all are of inferior quality. He was about to ask for just the tools, please when a tap on his leg distracted him, and he looked down.

A young Agori, possibly the shopkeeper's son, holds up a black whip. "Pick this one, I made it myself and it's the best whip in the whole world!" as Pikau takes it, the clearly mortified man hurries from behind the counter and shoos the kid upstairs. "I told you it was naptime, go back to bed!"

"Don't mind that one," he says, returning, "It's the kid's first try, and hardly good enough for a discerning Agori such as yourself." Pikau looks down at the whip. The braiding is sloppy and it is entirely too short, but overall the whip isn't bad. Turning to the door, he swings it forwards, ending in a resounding crack.

"I'll take this one, and a few tools." Pikau says, winking at the little kid still standing on the stairwell, his face practically beaming with pride. Paying the stunned man, he heads out of the store. It wasn't a good replacement for his old Whip, but the look on the kid's face was well worth it. He'll have to ask Oclavis if Terengua has a library to find a book on whip making though...

The hunched Merimies spots Pikau emerging from the wooden hut with the child's crude whip; walking up to him, he nods towards the tatty rope and chuckles darkly.

"I see you have found yourself a new weapon, Master Pikau," he stated, bowing slightly, "while it is not quite as fine as your previous, if I may be so prudent as to say, I am sure one as resourceful as yourself will put it to good use."

Merimies observed the crowd from afar, once again retaining his self-imposed distance. Despite his hatred of the salty Terenguan Air, he made sure to savour these final moments on the Island of Botana; once they stepped foot on that wooden boat, they would not see their blessed home for a very long time. For some, the mariner's son was certain, they would not see Botana ever again; for himself, he knew that nothing lay ahead but death...

Merimies' dire musings were cut short at the sight of a muscular Agori sat forlornly by the dock: this powerful, red-and-black figure looked distinctly out of place amongst the mud-caked dock-workers, despite his visible affinity for the hard life. Merimies remained in his place, his gaze masked under the tatty, moth-eaten hood; he silently wondered whether this stranger was here to join them on their journey.

"I installed a plank on yer ship! Now don' worry, I found a nice lil stop on the top deck, I bought the supplies an all, so you now are a proud owner of a plank!

It had been what felt like simultaneously hours and only moments since Eraba had unsheathed her sword from her back. Both combatants were bruised, particularly Eraba, who had no formal schooling in fighting, only what she had learned from experience.
Eraba had been attempting to read the grey agori's style of fighting but had so far only reached the level of understanding equivalent to, he liked to be in close and used a combination of slashing and punching attacks to put his sawblades to use.
Eraba had so far managed to stay ahead of him, with a few glancing blows off of her leathery armor. As she focused too much on thinking, she forgot to watch her whole body, and instead fixated on blocking the blade swipes. Pontel eventually realized this, and suddenly feinted and swept Eraba's legs out from under her.
The black agori hit the ground hard and Pontel had a boot on her stomach, ending that round.
"You think too much," he said, tired but jovial.
Eraba swore. Not only was she a failure as a mage, but also a cut-rate fighter. Pontel holstered his blade and offered a hand to the dark agori. She took it, standing up, when anger at her failure flashed in her, and everything went black.

When Eraba's eyes focused again, she was on her back again and Pontel wasn't in her field of vision. She sat up and looked around. Pontel was laying against the far wall, slumped to the floor. Eraba got up and limped over to him. She shook the agori's shoulder, and his eyes focused with a flutter.

"What happened?" she asked.

(OoC: I needed to get some character development done, after this little thing we can spar with different weapons or have Pontel be taught about spells and such.)

Pontel closed his eyes, holding his hand out, stressing as hard as he can to try and get a bit of light. He was trying as hard as he could, the room around him was still pitch black. A small flicker of light light up on his palm, looking back up to with a wide smile on his face he lifted up his palm up. Then his face turned to pure horror. When he lifted his palm, it lit up what was behind Eraba... it was a large shadowy figure behind her, with three dead skulls hanging limp, but there eyeless sockets seeming staring at Pontel. Pontel jumped up, yelling for Eraba to look out he jumped at the shadow, ramming his blade into it. The shadow was gone, his blade cutting into the wall, Pontel's heart was racing again.

"Of course my friend, magic is exhausting at the best of times, if it weren't everybody would do it. Good job."
Eraba held out her palm and, as she had a thousand times before, willed the energies of the universe, those that would heed her call, into it. At first she felt nothing, but gradually something new started. In that instant, Eraba was somewhere else, standing in total void. Shapes moved around her, short ones fell to their shadowy knees at her presence and whispered adorations in hushed tones, and taller ones stood, moving like shadows around a campfire, tilting their heads at unnatural angles, watching Eraba, examining her.
As quickly as she left, Eraba's mind snapped back to her body and she almost fell to her knees from the shock of it.
Pontel stared at her hand in disbelief.
"What in the worlds was that?" Eraba whispered.
"It was like what I did, except... the opposite." Pontel whispered back, "Where there should have been light, there was nothingness. It was unnatural, the darkness."

Merimies observed the crowd from afar, once again retaining his self-imposed distance. Despite his hatred of the salty Terenguan Air, he made sure to savour these final moments on the Island of Botana; once they stepped foot on that wooden boat, they would not see their blessed home for a very long time. For some, the mariner's son was certain, they would not see Botana ever again; for himself, he knew that nothing lay ahead but death...

Merimies' dire musings were cut short at the sight of a muscular Agori sat forlornly by the dock: this powerful, red-and-black figure looked distinctly out of place amongst the mud-caked dock-workers, despite his visible affinity for the hard life. Merimies remained in his place, his gaze masked under the tatty, moth-eaten hood; he silently wondered whether this stranger was here to join them on their journey.


Darian turned to see a stumpy little man, a tattered cloak wrapped around his head in a messy fashion. He grew uncomfortable as they both just stared at each other for a few moments. He and his band of strange companions seemed like just the right group of freaks he was looking for. He huffed and stood up to approach the man. As he walked towards him spared no hesitation:

"Fortunately Master, you have arrived just in time: we are about to set sail on the Harbour's Pride, the great boat just yonder," Merimies gestured to the boat that the stranger had been sat beside, "to the Mainland, where we will find a cure to the rampant infection known as the Tar.

“I’m sorry Mother, I’m sorry I let you down...”

Beowulf weaved his way down the streets of Terengua, one arm mounting a crate on his shoulder and the other coaxing a bottle of dark brown liquid. While he sang happily, his mind raced, paranoid about his preparations for the upcoming trip. He recounted all the contents of the crate as the port drew near.

Rope? Check.
Firestarters? Check.
Medical supplies? Check.

This practice of counting, Beowulf knew, was not because he feared forgetting something. He never forgot anything. His concern was for his party members. They weren’t hardened, professional warriors like he was used to: they were farmers and inventors, women and children. Peasants all around, too used to their normal lives. The fight against the Tar in Helgran had nearly destroyed the more reckless of them, and Beowulf doubted they’d survive a more overwhelming attack. He supposed that, as the best trained amongst them, it came to him to help train them.

“Just by my left brain, just by the side of Tin Man...”

He saw the Habor's Pride preparing to set sail. With a heave, he tossed the crate into the air, sending it gracefully to soar onto the deck. Twisting a hand around the rope to the anchor, he began to shimmy his way up, occasionally taking a sip from the bottle he held. With a flip, the warrior jumped onto the deck, next his crate, to the awe of the deck.

“Lemme let you in on a secret, kiddo,” Beowulf said as he wrapped an arm around Pikau. “One part cacao powder, two parts yak milk, and a liberal handful of raw, unadulterated cane sugar. I call it ‘chocalate milk.’” With that, Beowulf laughed, before picking up his crate to bring underdeck.

“Oh, I almost forgot, Pikau.” Beowulf produced a small cone of paper, before placing it atop Pikau's head and fastening it in place with a thin, elastic strap. “Got my party supplies.” Another laugh, and Beowulf disappeared into the hull of the ship.

Quoting Dark Aeon
“I’m sorry Mother, I’m sorry I let you down...”

Beowulf weaved his way down the streets of Terengua, one arm mounting a crate on his shoulder and the other coaxing a bottle of dark brown liquid. While he sang happily, his mind raced, paranoid about his preparations for the upcoming trip. He recounted all the contents of the crate as the port drew near.

Rope? Check.
Firestarters? Check.
Medical supplies? Check.

This practice of counting, Beowulf knew, was not because he feared forgetting something. He never forgot anything. His concern was for his party members. They weren’t hardened, professional warriors like he was used to: they were farmers and inventors, women and children. Peasants all around, too used to their normal lives. The fight against the Tar in Helgran had nearly destroyed the more reckless of them, and Beowulf doubted they’d survive a more overwhelming attack. He supposed that, as the best trained amongst them, it came to him to help train them.

“Just by my left brain, just by the side of Tin Man...”

He saw the Habor's Pride preparing to set sail. With a heave, he tossed the crate into the air, sending it gracefully to soar onto the deck. Twisting a hand around the rope to the anchor, he began to shimmy his way up, occasionally taking a sip from the bottle he held. With a flip, the warrior jumped onto the deck, next his crate, to the awe of the deck.

Pikau just stares.

Then, dragging his pack from Pontel's cart, pulls out a pencil and draws a dragon wrapping around the hat, lest the cone be mistaken for some other kind of cap.

Hiiro was curious and asked. "Excuse me, Merimies? Do you need help with something?"

Ramses and Stronoff were still training.

"I do not need any help thank you, young Master Hiiro," Merimies turned to the broad-shouldered Helgran Warrior, "but now, let us board the Harbour's Pride before we are left behind...!"

Thus, the two Agori made their way onto the boat, while Ramses and Stronoff abandoned their training to follow. At the top of the ramp, Merimies stepped aside in mid-bow, to allow Hiiro and his compatriots to go on ahead.

After boarding, Merimies made his way to the forecastle of the ship and gripped the rail, looking out into the quivering Botana shore; the setting sun was dipping into the horizon, casting out an array of colour across sea and sky alike. The clouds were silhouetted in purple and rimmed in gold as the final vestiges of light were retreating to the underworld in a spectacular burst of gold at the sea's vanishing point; it was a beautiful sight indeed.

Merimies' eyes narrowed, despite the shelter from the light that his hood provided; it was unclear, but he swore that he could discern storm-clouds appearing over the horizon; this would certainly not be good for sailing if Merimies could confirm his suspicion, but the dazzling glare of the sun made it too unclear for a proper judgement.

He looked away, not wanting to blind himself- they would just have to hope for a safe journey to Zanarkand.

"Apologies for asking, it's just you looked troubled about something." Hiiro said after they got on board.

Ramses and Stronoff can on board as the red agori tried not to think about the sea to avoid sea sickness.

Darian sat hunched over at the front of the ship. He had been on this boat for a while now yet he hadn't interacted with anyone other than that Merimies man. He eyed the rest of his party to find someone he could interact with.

Of all the colour characters, Beowulf stood out. He remembered him as the one with that weird brown liquid. He seemed like a worthy opponent to Darian.

Darian confidently marched towards the agori. Beowulf had his back turned to Darian as Darian attempted to put on a more relaxed demeanor by leaning against a large wooden pole.

"So, you're Beowulf...I heard you have some 'chocolate milk'."

Beowulf turned to the murmurings of this daring agori.

Beowulf looked quizzically at the stockily built agori, before bursting into laughter.

“Fight? For chocolate milk? I may be an uncouth hermit, but I thought y’all would be more civilized than me.” He tosses the bottle into the air, sending it sailing over to Darian. The brawler catches it in a mighty fist, and while suspiciously glaring at Beowulf, takes a sip of the brown liquid.

Much to Darian's surprise, Beowulf was honest about the ingredients of the drink. The bitter cacao stung his tongue, before being soothed by the creaminess of the yak milk. Darian looked away from the drink to watch Beowulf mix a handful of brown powder in another bottle of milk, swirling the contents until they became an even brown. “Now, I recomend enjoying the treat while you can. This milk's not gonna keep for another day or so, and I plan to finish it all before then.” He raises the bottle as though toasting to Darian, then downs it in one long chug.

“Now, if you do want to fight me, I’d be more than happy to oblige once we've all settled in. In fact, while I’m at it, since so many of you have been keen on sparing or learning to fight properly, I’ll be offering free lessons to any who desire. ” Pivoting on his heels, Beowulf resumes his attempt to enter the hull of the ship, before pausing.

“Say, you wouldn’t have happened to assume my chocolate milk was alcohol, now did ya?” He looks at Darian before laughing again. “Aw, I bought everyone a keg of beer too. I’m not so much of a drinker myself, but I figured the rest of y’all might appreciate it. Thanks for showing me that there's at least one Agori here who would appreciate a pint.”

The sky turned to Amethyst as the sun finally ducked down the horizon line, the last vestiges of light lingering ahead. Finally, after what seemed like an arduous wait, the anchor unhooked from the submerged sand and the Harbour's Pride began to drift idly away from the port.

Merimies turned around, looking back at the thick lines of Agori at the docks, cheering the heroes off toward their destiny. His eyed lingered on the crowd, so swelled with emotion they were that it began to affect him too; he turned his back to them, swallowing the lump in his throat like a bitter pill.

His shaded eyes instead turned to the darkening horizon, trembling with the vitality of the ocean. Looking up, he could see the clouds far clearer now, darkened as they were by the impending rain. His suspicion was correct: a storm was coming. It was very far off at this stage, he had plenty of time to warn Oclavis' crew, once he could find the old sea-captain.

For now though, the light was fading, and night was approaching.

Stronoff went to search for the captain for the layout of the ship so he can patrol unawared of a mysterious figure walking toward the room where Ramses and Hiiro.

The figure was a Agori wearing a ship crew uniform (or armor). "Excuse me, are you Hiiro and Ramses?" He asked.

"Yes, why?" Hiiro asked cautiously.

"I thought that you would like some tea for the trip?" He offered.

"I would love some," Ramses accepted the offer with glee. "It's been a long time since I had a cup."

As the two brothers talked for the moment as the agori got the their cups ready he secertly placed a purple powder in their tea as a small grab small cube of the powder and suddenly it died from eating it. Meaning to the brothers unawareness that it was poisoned.

Pontel’s cart was parked on the top deck of the Harbor’s Pride. He was lying on the cart’s bench, still wide-awake, wondering if these strange nightmares would keep plaguing him. He had his night vision lens in one eye and the distance lens in his other eye. He lay there, pondering, watching the approaching storm…

A ways away from Pontel’s cart, a small black-clad Agori lifted itself out from a crate. It crept along the dark ship, sneaking its way around the crew and other Agori, over to Pontel’s cart. Thinking that Pontel was asleep, it snuck up to the back of his cart, and peeked into a small crate. It was filled with small pouches… Curious as to what they were, it reached in and grabbed a couple of them…

Pontel thought he heard a rustle behind him, turning around he looked at the back of his cart, forgetting that he had different lenses in each eye. His vision was completely off, closing one eye; he looked through the night vision lens and saw a shadowy figure stealing from one of his chests. That chest was full of his exploding pouches. Pontel jumped down from his cart, and charged at the thief with both of his blades spinning…

The black clad Agori saw Pontel stir, and was able to pocket the pouches it had pilfered before Pontel jumped down. It sprinted a short distance away, and spun around to face the charging Pontel. While the thief turned, it pulled out two long Katanas. Pontel, seeing it’s blades, halted for a second. They stood there, sizing each other up. Pontel was the first to make a move, charging at the thief with his blades raised high, swinging them at it. The thief, being small and agile, dodged the attack, sending Pontel’s blades tearing into the ship’s deck. The thief kicked Pontel in the back, sending him rolling away.

“I don’t want to hurt you, but I will if I must.” The thief growled, it’s voice feminine.

Pontel quickly recovered, and stood up, his blades at the ready.

They stood there, facing each other, poised for action. All around them Agori were waking up and begging to gather…

As Kae lay defeated, clatter and smashing was heard from within the ship. The sound of a heavy body mounted the steps upwards was heard from within the ship. The agori looked around in anticipation to see who would exit. The trap door flies open and a strong hand mounts the edge of the opening. What results is the pathetic form of Darian limply dragging himself up out of the hole. He finally pulled himself out and lay there for a few moments. He stood up and swayed a little as he pointed at the already incapacitated Kae.

Surely this threat sounded both funnier and more effective in his head...

Pikau had been taking a much-needed nap when the commotion started. He was getting better at sleeping through the scrapes and arguments the other members of the party got into, but the squawks of the wounded kakau jolted him out of his rest.

Skirting around the fight(there seemed to be enough cooks in that kitchen, plus he still didn't have a proper weapon), Pikau began tending to the injured bird.

Rakau said pointing down at Kae while holding on to the riggings with his other hand. "Ahh we need to lighten the mood! Ill tell you all the tale of 'The Leaky Boat'! ... or was it cauldron..." Rakau said, now in debate with himself on which it was. "Aha I remember! Of course it was boat, how could I forget that.

"Hello Miss Helma," Tuhinga said politely, "It's nice to meet you. Keipet here has told me all about you." He smiled. "I have a question that I must ask, though, on behalf of another friend of mine, Pontel. He has been seeing a strange, shadowy, three headed creature. It seems to appear when ever he attempts magic. Keipet told me you may have some knowledge as to what the creature may be?" Tuhinga questioned.

"Well, I heard about shadowy creatures, this one sounds awful, just tell your friend to stop trying magic."

He bid Keipet and his mother farewell, and made his way out on to the deck. He saw a rather small, black clad female Agori tied to the mast. "What happened?" He asked the surrounding Agori.

You think you can hold me prisoner! No one has ever succeeded in holding me captive, and no one ever will! She shouted at the nearby Agori.


“So, your name’s Kae, eh?”

A mighty Agori stooped over next to the thief, balanced in a crouch as he studied her. “Kae the thief...you seem to expect us to know you?”

Kae scoffed at Beowulf. “That’s Kae the Infamous to you. And you are?”

Beowulf ignores Kae’s question. “Kae the Infamous...so you must be quite reknown on Botana, not that I, a meager hermit, would know. But truly, it must be a privilege for us to be in the presence of someone as famed as you, right?”

Kae starts to beam with pride in her fame, before Beowulf interrupts. “Of course, if you’re so well known, you must be utter garbage at the thieving itself.”

“Uh, excuse me?” Kae is taken aback by the warrior’s statement.

“Well, if you were good at being a thief, that would mean you are good at not getting caught; not having your identity found out. However, you seem to expect that a very large number, assumably every Agori, to know your name. This would mean that you have likely been either conclusively identified as the culprit, which means that your modus operandi has been distilled to a set of quantifiable, recognizable parameters to fit the crime to a pattern seen in your thefts that were caught, and/or you have been caught for a significant number of thefts. Given the definition given earlier, you cannot be good at being a thief.”

Kae opens her mouth to retort, but is cut off as Beowulf leans into her face.

“Let me tell you something Kae. At this moment, we are maybe 50 miles away from Botana and even further from any land. There are no life rafts or shipbuilding materials on this ship, courtesy of our conscientious shipmaster Oclavis, and our destination, Zanarkand, is likely thoroughly overrun by Tar in a best case scenario. Even if you can escape from the rope binding you currently, you cannot escape back to Botana any time soon. Given your established criminal ineptitude, I can assume you would do terribly fighting alone against an ever present Tar. Your best bet at survival is to quell your rebellious desires and cooperate with our efforts to find a cure for the Tar. After all, the sooner we find a way to cure the Tar, the sooner we will return to Botana.”

Beowulf straightened himself, still looking down at the thief. “Now, Kae, you asked my name. I am Beowulf the Unchallenged, He with Inhuman Might. I do recommend that you cooperate and avoid any further trouble, as, whether or not it is true that we could not restrain you for an extended period of time, I can guarantee that, should the mood fall upon me, I could play volley ball with your severed head before the next fastest Agori could stop me. Anyways, it has been a pleasure meeting you, and I am excited to welcome you to our party.” Without consultation, he reaches out and snaps the rope binding Kae. He makes his way to Darian, ignoring the stunned Agori behind him.

“Now you, friend, have had a bit too much for one night. I’d recommend finding a good place to pass out, one from which your impending hangover may be slightly lessened. He reaches out for Darian’s shoulder, intending to steer him back to civilian quarters.

Pontel said coldly to Kae. Pontel walked to the railing of the boat, the wood now getting slippery from the rain. Lightning could be seen all around. Pontel likes watching it, it calmed him. But then something cuaght his eye, silhouetted by the lightning. It was a large creature, its hollow skull like heads lit up from the light, it was floating over the ocean, waves lapping at the bottom of it. Its heads hung limply at its sides. It was far off, hard to judge how far off due to it only beeing water as far as the eye could see. And once the lightning stoppes near it, it was lost in the darkness.

Merimies was drawn out from deep within the ship by the sound of commotion; he would have aided in the fight if this Kae figure had not already been incapacitated. He listened from afar to the intruder's brash boastings, Darian's drunken mumbling and Beowulf's long-winded ultimatum; if he followed their conversation correctly, it seemed they had yet another unsavoury character forced into their company; he sighed.

The old man's eyes remained fixed on the shadowy Kae, intent on examining her every move with the utmost scrutiny. Her form was illuminated by the gentle sprinkling of the midnight rain, accentuated briefly by the intermittent flashing of far-off lightning; forty seconds later, the soft rumbling of thunder.

The storm was gradually ramping up, but for now it remained only a distant promise; Merimies continued to watch Kae.

Slowly, the activity on the deck died down as the Agori each began returning to their cabins. All was quiet, yet Beowulf could only stare at the wall across from his cot, eyes wide and alert.

“They’re not ready.”

Beowulf didn’t bother to see if this foreign voice belonged to anyone nearby, he knew what it was. “Hush, I’m trying to sleep.”

The oppressive darkness grew as the thunder outside the ship faded. “They are not ready, and you will not be able to train them in time. You can only lead them as lambs to the slaughter.”

Beowulf remained facing the wall. Slowly, he reached a hand aimlessly into the darkness, as though reaching for something in it. Yet there was only air.

“And where were you during the attack in Helgran? They did fine, and they’ll do fine on the mainland once I train them a bit.”

Beowulf states into the darkness, and the darkness stared into him. Slowly, the shadows drew back, once again letting the faint starlight enter the cabin.

“They are not ready, Beowulf. You are optimistic, but such must be tempered with rationality. If Helgran was any indication, the mainland will be a cesspool of darkness.”

“Don’t worry about it. We’ll be stopping in Zanarkand to search for clues about the mainland, and that should give me plenty of time to get them ready to fight.”

The shadow lingered in the air, before dissipating, content. Beowulf was left alone, starlight reflecting of an iron-clad fist.

“I will find you, Master,” he says as he rolls over, finally dozing off. “I will find you.”

A sleepy Beowulf opened one eye to investigate the noisy disturbance. It quickly found its culprit; a large, Tar-infected Razorfish hung its ugly maw above his head, teeth inches away from turning the warrior's face into an appetizer.
~~~
As soon as Rengar had called his alarm, a mighty quake rocked the boat, flooring the agori. Scraps of the Razorback are flung away from its entry hole, and a fearsome voice emanates from within the ship.

“AIN NOHBUDY WHO EATS BEO'S PRETTY FACE! NOHBUDY. Well, not without taking me to dinner first...”

Groggily, the warrior returns to his bed, too tired to address the gaping hole in the ship’s wall. Fortunately, his room rested high enough above the lapping waves that he was not at risk of drowning for his negligence.

“What are we supposed to do?” She says while finding Squirmy.

"Don't touch it, and try to kill it. I have seen these things in the wild, and while not aggressive usually, their scales will rip a hole in the boat if they even brush it! That one is infected is even worse!"

Quoting Toa Gaim

"Y-Yes sir..." Hiiro replied shaken as he remembered the time his mother scolded him for getting into a fight with the school bullies even though he was trying to protect one of the kids who was being pick on, but he shouldn't used his head first to solve this peacefully instead letting his anger get the better.

"Don't worry, I doubt that Hiiro is that kind of person since I had trained him to show restraint." Stronoff assured him. "Though until he recovered, I'm still curious why would he try to poison the two and more importantly how did he know Hiiro and Ramses names?"

Rubbing his bruised face from Darvy's well placed kick, Merimies rose from the ground; he looked down at the unconscious sailor in Stronoff's hands, and then up to Oclavis, locked in debate with the white warrior while Hiiro shuffled awkwardly.

"Master Oclavis, I shall confess that I know as little as you about the incident, but I'll let it be known that this sailor engaged in combat with me, which I do not imagine he would have done if his intentions were pure; that is all I shall add." Merimies bowed.

Oclavis' response was cut short by the rocking of the ship, and Rengar's frantic cry to action; the crew hurried over, dropping the limp Darvy like a rag doll. However, once they had made their way to the edge of the boat, a cluster of bloody, Tar-Clogged chunks flew into the air. They skidded to a halt, examining the dark blood frothing up in the ocean. It seemed that whatever was happening here had been quickly resolved.

Returning to the other side of the deck, they noticed the slumped body of Darvy beginning to stir.

"Ah," Merimies sounded, motioning towards the sailor, "I believe now that some answers may be obtained...!"

Tuhinga, wakened by all the commotion, came up to the deck of the ship. Glancing around, he saw Maikuku standing a short distance away. Perhaps she knows what happened. He walked over to her and said, "What happened? That was quite the commotion."

Kae, glancing around, sees a group of Agori gathered a ways away, one of which looked rather old, and wore a tattered hood. He looked as if he may be the one in charge. Kae walked over to the group, and tapped on the afore mentioned Agori's shoulder none-too-gently. "Hey old man," She said, her voice dripping with venom, "You in charge here? Give me more information on the "mission" that that fool Beowolf spoke of. Are you really going to try to find a way to stop the Tar? You all must be daft."

Quoting Dark Aeon

“Growl...”

A sleepy Beowulf opened one eye to investigate the noisy disturbance. It quickly found its culprit; a large, Tar-infected Razorfish hung its ugly maw above his head, teeth inches away from turning the warrior's face into an appetizer.
~~~
As soon as Rengar had called his alarm, a mighty quake rocked the boat, flooring the agori. Scraps of the Razorback are flung away from its entry hole, and a fearsome voice emanates from within the ship.

“AIN NOHBUDY WHO EATS BEO'S PRETTY FACE! NOHBUDY. Well, not without taking me to dinner first...”

Groggily, the warrior returns to his bed, too tired to address the gaping hole in the ship’s wall. Fortunately, his room rested high enough above the lapping waves that he was not at risk of drowning for his negligence.

Pikau and the kakau fell back as a shudder rocked the boat. "What is it now!?" He shouts, dashing back up to the deck.

"Well, it seems I'm late again today." he states, surveying the winding-down commotion around him.

“There was a tar attack that ended up to be a disappointment.” She says, putting away her claws.

Squirmy is grumpy that this is the reason that his playtime was interrupted.

Davy slowly woke up and noticed the goup present and near the edge meaning that he had nowhere to run.

"How nice of you to wake up," Davy panicked as he turned to see Stronoff standing over him. "Now care to explained on why were you trying to poison my student and his older brother?" He asked in a menacing and demanding tone. "If you're lying and I will know if you're lying!" He pointed his spear at him.

Davy immediately giving into pressure. "Alright! Alright, I'll talk!" He summited. "I was doing a job for my boss to get them poison, but I had to make sure that doses were enough to stunned so I can bring them to him that he reward with a large sum of money." He explained. "This is the second time I have to poison someone from Ha'shuan Village."

"Who was the first?" Stronoff demanded.

"Some retired warrior lady, name Ishtar was it?" Davy answered. "Whoever she was, she'll be soon a dead goose without a cure."

Hiiro became enraged and grabbed Davy by the callor of his suit. "That woman you'd poisoned was my mother Tell me who told you or so help me I'll-!" He roared as he raised his fist only to be stopped by Ramses and Merimies pulling him back.

"Brother please! Control yourself!" Ramses begged as they pulled Hiiro away from Davy.

Oclavis pushed his way past Hiiro and Ramses, "Darvy, how could you, I've known you since you were a kid, I put my trust in you, I saved YOUR FREAKIN LIFE! and you would do this to me. You know where the life boat is, now get of my ship, NOW!" Oclavis grabbed him by the neck and shoved him in the direction of the life boat. He was gone in a flash. Kae ran up just to late, "Can I go with..."

"Captain Oclavis sir!" One of the crewmen appeared. "We found Darvy in one of the cabin closet out cold with his equipment stolen. When he woke up he said that someone was planning to frame him with the poison."

"Wait?" Stronoff asked. "If the real Darvy was found in the closet, then who was it that we caught." When they realized it was too late that the imposter was gone in the life boat.

Merimies was pulled away from the affair concerning Darvy, wheeling around to face the svelte Kae.

"-no, I am not the one 'in charge' Ma'am," Merimies responded, his gravelly voice somewhat cold beneath the cordiality, "I am merely a humble servant of Lord Kahkan, he who sent us out on this grave mission. As for an elaboration, Madam Kae, we are venturing out to the lonely isle of Zanarkand and, in turn, the Mainland. There, we hope to find a cure for the rancid Tar of Sur'Kosh. You may call us fools Ma'am, yet you shall bestow great wrath upon your head if you defame the word of Krickarr, Lord of Kahkan...!"

"What makes you think there even is a cure?" Kae scoffed.

"Nothing is undying, Ma'am," Merimies rebutted, "all things have their bane... no, not even the Gods are immortal...!"

A brief pause, before the old Agori checked himself.

"...perhaps I should alter my wording: we seek the source of the Tar, the foul wound from which this infection was birthed. From there, we may ascertain the origins of the beast that so ravages our land- knowing this shall help us in the combat against it, I can assure you."

"If you wish not to aid us in our adventure, if indeed you haven't the nerve for our expedition, you are welcome to either swim back to Botana or set up a new home on the Mainland; I am sure none will lament your absence..." the Mariner's son chuckled darkly.

Far on the island where the ship was heading lie the life boat left by the fake Darvy as he took off his disguise revealing a black and green Agori with a menacing appearance.

"So my settle approach backfired and using the idiot crew member as a scapegoat went down the drain." He said to himself in a calm manner. "Too bad the captain and those fools realized too late." He grinned. "Thankfully my bread crumb touched a nerve on the mommy boy Hiiro. Now it's a matter of time until I catch him and his brother before I get the big score of my career!" He laughed evilly.

Rakau had finished his tale, he went back down to his legs and hoped in, not noticing that the planks upon which he stands were quite weak. "Well then!" Rakau started, angered by that fact no one listened to his tale. "You just won' get anymore tales! You hear me? I am NOT-" upon saying the word 'NOT' he stomped his metal foot... collapsing the planks under him. He landed with a softened thud on the bed, he was not alone. Pikau was in the bed as well. "Well thats just jolly! The floor was weak! My bad." With that, Rakau stood up, and went to the door to leave...
(OoC: im am just leaving it so you can have Pikau talk to him if you want, or just have him leave.)
