elsewhere, Kron has been slowly, and with inexperienced carefulness, himself to Mazra, the truth about himself, how he has never been in any sort of committed relationship, that the only women he has known have been the Chumlies of Malva

But Mazra has been different. he explains, because even a brute like him has noticed his effect on her, that she would destroy all she was just for the chance to be with him, that his simple assurance to take her away from that was a gift beyond her wildest dreams

and to go back to his ways after this would destroy her, so there is only one option, as he holds her close

qalay'

until jIH Hegh pejatlh pagh be' 'ach SoH

'ach, latlhpu'vaD maq Hegh lay' pol qej "bang"
vaj neH tlhIH bang until Hegh 'Ip jIH
pong batlh kron reH ghaH HIvDI' muSHa'ghach.


he knows Mazra can't speak his language, but her wide brown eyes show she understands his vow, so he moves onto the vow she does understand, that of passion, and survival, the only true affirmation of life in the face of the almost certain death that lies ahead tomorrow

and keep everyone else in that tower of the castle awake into the wee hours of the night by the sounds of lovemaking.

Xiphos


Xiphos was trying to relax and enjoy the party, he had checked on the thashers and made sure that they were being looked after even though they had been torn between entering the castle or staying outside with room to run if necessary. In the end they kept wandering in and out of the castle helping themselves to the feast.

Perhaps he was being too cautious wearing his helmet but he felt that the lifting of the siege was too easy and any time the other boot will fall and the King will show his true colours. About to take another drink of the local beer Xiphos felt his helmet being lifted from his head, spinning round his hand already clasping the hilt of his sword he was greeted by the sight of a grinning Amethyst floating in midair holding his helmet.

Ysariel wrote:She grins, floating into the air as her hyperdrive starts up. "If you want it, come and get it!"

She flies out of the window and lands on the castle wall, holding the helmet in the air with one hand like a trophy.


"Oh it's on girl." Xiphos says with a grin running after Michelle and without stopping to check jumped out of the window. Spinning effortlessly in midair Xiphos landed like a cat on the castle wall still smiling.

"I will take ... " he started to say before he paused suddenly seeing Michelle outlined by the moon in front of him, her long pink hair flowing slightly in the gentle breeze that had sprung up from nowhere, she looked like an angel eyes shining yet somehow looking vulnerable at the same time.

Acting on instinct Xiphos stepped forward towards Michelle and bending down he kissed her deeply on the mouth. After what felt like forever he opened his eyes to look at Michelle, unsure whether he had misread the situation but thinking it was worth it.

After assuring their allies that the team would definitely be joining in the fight to kick Blader in the nuts, Natah did two of the things he did best... he drank heavily and partied like it was going out of style.

Natah smiled as he sampled yet another of the local brews. Kron was off with his new lady-friend, and the love birds seemed to be well on their way to admitting to each other what everyone and their dog had picked up on.

Natah plonked himself down next to Beacon. "Looks like you're my party buddy tonight Shiny. we had better show the locals how its done: eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life! Or however that saying goes."

Amethyst

Amethyst can't help but grin as she watches Xiphos land on the castle wall with a flawless somersault, while she stands with one hand on her hip and another holding dangling his helmet dangling by the chin straps. But as he takes a step towards her something changes in that fraction of a second. The chill of the night air melts away, and there is only him and her. Her scent fills the air between them, he is close enough she can feel the warmth of his body. She's mustered up all her bravado to come here and face the fear of rejection, and he's walking to her with that look in his eyes and he's going to he's going to --

When they part lips Amethyst's heart is thumping hard and fast enough that surely he can feel it too. Something bumps against her armored boots: Xiphos' helmet. She hasn't even realized she's dropped it.

Michelle dips her head slightly and looks up at him, a mixture of relief, embarrassment, and above all, joy. "About time," she mock-scolds. But she's smiling. She can't stop smiling.

She kisses him again, with only the moon as witness.

Beacon:
[Nathaniel 'Nate' Jackson]
HP: 1
LP: 2

Once things had been settled Beacon made sure to return his cacti friends back to their gathering place, promising to visit them again after Blader had been dealt with. He made a mental note to talk with Kron about talk to his tribal allies about no longer using the cacti as fire starter.

At the feast given by the King he watches as most of his allies go their own ways - Kron with his lady friend and Amethyst and Xiphos disappeared out a window, hopefully to have that talk Amethyst had said she was going to have with the swordsman.

Smiling as he sat at the table with his mask tucked into his belt while he ate and drank, Beacon couldn't help but feel like they were on a good place for the moment. It was at that point that Natah sat down next to him.

Natah wrote:Natah plonked himself down next to Beacon. "Looks like you're my party buddy tonight Shiny. we had better show the locals how its done: eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life! Or however that saying goes."


"Sounds good to me Bendy." Beacon says as he toasts his teammate then takes a long drink from his glass then gets up from his seat. "I'll leave the drinking to you as that young lady over there looks to be in need of a dance partner and I'm pretty sure I can help her fix that." Moments later Beacon is on the floor dancing with one of the prettier girls who is laughing along with him.

"Shine on you crazy meatbag." Natah chortles in return before corralling some locals to introduce them to the concept of a Keg Stand.

Have Fun Storming the Castle

As a sign of thanks for your help, the King of Castle Tomak decrees the Cacti will never again be used for fuel, and they shall be safe in his lands forever more. He assigns a small group to escort the Threshers back to their lands as well.

You travel with some of the forces of Castle Tomak, the remainder left behind to keep the crystal arsenal secure. You reach the Highlord's keep. If the siege of Castle Tomak looked bleak, this looks insane. An army of Vorlick twice as large as the one used to seize the castle stands guard over the castle, led by five groups of Elementals.

Everyone remains at their HP level unless it is lower than starting HP. Everyone gets an HP for their Interlude.

Natah looked over the scene and said. "You know I'm really starting to hate this Blader Guy. Okay plans, we need plans. Plans are good. Does anyone have a plan?"

Xiphos
HP: 3 > 4
Condition: Happy


Not even the size of the army outside Blader's castle could wipe the smile from Xiphos's face, he had never felt so happy and his only regret not realising a lot earlier.

Still holding Michelle's hand Xiphos's eyes narrowed in thought "Natah do you think you could tunnel us into the castle without any of those elementals noticing?"

Amethyst

At the sight of the army Amethyst closes her fingers around Xiphos' a little more tightly. Her forcefield tingles.

But she is not backing down. She has one more reason to make it back home alive now.

"Natah, that trick where you walk all of them off a cliff would come in really handy now," Amethyst suggests, only half joking. She looks at the five groups of elementals. She should've known Blader would clone them, too.

"There's got to be some way Blader's controlling the clones," she thinks out loud. "I don't think a villain would just trust in their loyalty. There has to be a way he's forcing them to do his will..."

"I wish that trick would work twice, but with this many of the elemental goons walking around it would be too easy to be found out or for someone to countermand any order I gave. It might come in handy on a small scale at some point." Natah said.

"As for digging in unnoticed, that's a big maybe. Five of those rock heads to dodge makes it a lot harder, but not impossible."

"If Blader is anything like Mongul," Kron says, "Or Malvans of his ilk, then his arrogance knows no bounds. we could perhaps just walk up to the castle gates, demand we 'surrender' to himin person, and he'd let us through because he'd need to gloat to the only force Warlord could send to stop him

"At which point we beat him like a cheap drum."

"You know, this guy might just be that big of an egotistical Jerk for that to work." Natah said. "Although if we want to be extra sure we don't get swarmed on sight we could send one of your Vorlick buddies as a messenger. I mean we've seen these clone armies aren't too bright so they probably won't attack another Vorlick unless provoked or ordered to."

"And if you guys need to smuggle your gear or weapons in unnoticed, I mean on the off chance this guy isn't totally stupid, I can smuggle them in." He thumps his chest compartment.

Xiphos
HP: 4
Condition: Happy


"That could work." Xiphois said thoughtfully "Do they use parlay flags at all here? If they do it may give the messenger a better chance of delivering the message in one piece."
