Asgardried: I am not nuts, but I do have nuts. I have a variety of nuts actually, is that what you want for lunch? I would recommend something more filling myself.

((Joint post between Admiral and I.))

Asgardried Lounge

Raschel: What's wrong with her? *looking at the holoprojection at Viddall and the infinity Blade facing off* What is that? That isn't a Sith, is it? That almost looks like a lightsaber...

Valda: Whats wrong with whom?

Raschel: With Idun...

----------

Cargo Bay

*K'Warra stands in the open entrance to Guy's ship, watching the two combatants*

K'Warra: This ought to be entertaining.

*The Blade moves away from Viddall's strike and then rapidly back inwards, swinging his sword to catch Viddall's blade. Viddall ducks within the blades stike, bringing his pommel down hard against the blades head, while he uses the rim of his shield to bash against the blades right arm.

The Blade appears unfazed by Viddall's strike to its head. Moving unnaturally fast, it brings its sword backwards and strikes the Aesir's shield with the edge of the blade. Viddall in a whirl of motion, brings his blade across the top of his shield in a downward cut. The runes along the shield flash red, as metal lines from the shield flow out and wrap around the blades sword.

The Blade dodges, moving its entire body to the side in an impressive contortionist feat, out of the arc of Viddall's strike, then rips its sword free with a cut at a different angle. It twirls in a circular motion before leaping into the air, bringing its feet down on the edge of Viddall's shield and slashing downwards with both hands, lightsword charged with a sparking field that tints the white weapon a black-blue color.

A shimmering red field surrounds the top of Viddall, appearing just before the blade landed repelling the blades sword. Viddall drops his shield low while thrusting at his sword upwards, runes in the swords fuller glow a bright orange, flames appear on the sword. The blue field around the Blade's sword bursts as it hits the red field, but seems to wash over Viddall without harming him.

The Blade "catches" the sword point, stopping it and holding it a few inches from its cupped left hand, staying, impossibly, balanced on the shield. The flames form inside an invisible bubble.

K'Warra watches the battle, eyes narrowed*

K'Warra: I think I'm figuring this out. Two minds... One for the magic, one for the sword.

*The Blade strikes at Viddall's sword arm with his own in a strike designed to remove the limb.

Viddall gives slight smile. The rim of his shield morphs into a series of spikes ramming into the Blade's foot. Another field forms near Viddall's sword arm, tentacles run out from the field up along the blades arm twisting and griping the arm. The blade of Viddall's sword is now fully inflamed as Viddall pulls back and slashes at the Blade's knees.

The Blade doesn't react to the spikes impaling its feet. It slashes its sword through the field of tentacles to deflect Viddall's weapon. Blades extend from its wrist and spin, slashing away the tentacles, but the tentacles wrapping its upper arm remain.*

K'Warra: Tentacles? How very... Japanese. But have we a checkmate?

*For each tentacle that is cut, two more go after the Blade's limbs. The spikes impaling the blade's feet grow large and expand, while spikes along the shield's bottom drop to the ground, on the grought the seem to melt and form another sword blade lifting into the air and flying towards the back of the Blade.

Viddall drops his sword low, bringing it around onto the Blades wrist*

K'Warra: Checkmate.

*The Blade leaps upwards off the shield and away from Viddall's sword, slicing through the tentacles with its arm blades, striking away the shield-sword with his own sword. Viddall quickly stabs upward into the Blades gut, twisting the blade as it entered the Blade's flesh. Viddall then pulls his sword upward, helped with the motion of the Infinity Blade slices most of the Blades midsection open.

The Blade falls roughly onto the deck of the Cargo Hold. Viddall quickly steps forward swinging his sword low at the Blade's neck, severing its head. Stepping back the runes on Viddall's shield glowed red as the spikes retracted back into teh shield and the flying sword melts and is reabsorbed. A ripped matrix of circuitry and electric sparks lie exposed in the Blade's wounds, clear fluid and blood running from them.

K'Warra claps*

K'Warra: A few clumsy tactics, but you made up for it with the ending. Bravo.

Guy: *from inside his ship* Remove its limbs, and put your sword through its eye. Take no chances.

*The spider robots swarm over the creature again, slicing through its armor from the inside, sending charges of energy into the exposed wounds.

Viddall quickly dissects the lifeless body before stabbing the sword down into the Blade's eye. Drawing the sword from the Blade's skull the flames disapate from the blade and Viddall sheaths the sword.

The silver device on the Blade's belt glows blue. Tendrils of light crawl across the dismembered body, leaping to cover each of the disconnected techno-organic pieces. The body twists and vanishes in a flash of blue light*

Valda *with a small smirk*: Don't worry, it isn't catching.

*Valda watched with interest as Viddall and the infinity blade fought, finally it was over*

Asgardried: Intruder no longer amoung the living, tonight Blade steaks, get them well they are freshed. Only thing left is to slam a door in Sir Vin's face. Oh, Cargo bay is now unsealed, and I'm going to fly into a star. Lunch in five minutes.

*As Svafa and Idona enter the lounge, Idun's eyes glow again before returning to normal. She then slumps in her seat, slightly pale. Valda looks at both Svafa and Idona before, opening a cabinet and pulling out a silver pitcher. Pouring the contents into a tankard, Valda hands it to Idun*

Idun *before drinking*: Thank you.

*Svafa and Idona continue pass the lounge and head aft to the cargo hold. Shortly after they pass, Vidar, Ragnar, and Heimdall enter the bridge*

Vidar: Well we are safely away, so everyone can stand down.

Cargo Hold

*Viddall just shrugs at K'Warra, before his eyes breifly glow again and return to normal.*

K'Warra: What? Nothing to say? No bows to take? *He walks over to Aren's ship and wrenches open the doors, which have been blaster-welded shut together*

K'Warra: Well, hello and welcome back, Ellela, Gortick, Matt, and... *looking at the ork with an evil glint in his eye* ...funny, I could swear we've met before. But you must forgive me, I can't remember your name...

*The ork's eyes widen and she reaches for a sword that isn't there*

Sir-Vin *at asgardried's comments of slamming a door in his face* "I won't bet the farm on it."

*Sir-vin changes his direction from the cargo bay and walks to his quarters, with a smirk, he walks with his right arm at his side and his elbow at a 90 degree angle.

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Viddall: Bows are taken after work is done and over a tankard of mead and some good food.

Svafa: Nice fight Viddall.

Viddall: Thank you m'lady.

"I don't mean to sound terribly alarmed as I've been gradually learning that your ship can actually think for itself," Elaina said, "but if my ears aren't playing tricks on me, the ship is talking about flying through a star? Now, I understand I know next to nothing about the ship, but..." A look of extreme concern came to her face. "Can it do that?"

"Well, if we die, we can blame the ship," Tanara chuckled, seeming definitely less concerned than her sister.

Asgardried: Of course I can do it. The question is should I? I seem to recall no one was inside me when I flew through the last star, something about the massive amount of heat and radiation making it deadly to be inside me... Guess we will find out soon enough, Since if you all look out the nearest window you will see our destintaion. Lunch will be served in three minutes...

*Outside the a large Blue Giant filled the viewports which tinted just slightly allowing for everyone to look at the star.*

Asgardried: So anyone ever see a Star's core before?

((Yeah... but doesn't mean the doors could open all the way.

Basically that's my ready-made excuse for why Gortick/Ellela/(Matt?) didn't participate in the fight, since "Admiral and Redwing wanted to finish the scene in one day" doesn't really work in-story. ))

Lounge

Marin: *to Heimdall* Blades aren't supposed to be made. The Blade magic appears in people, any people from anywhere in the world, and the Blades recruit from those potentials. It keeps the Blades connected...

Raschel: *looking at the faces of the Aesir present* Is it... serious?

Chere: I'm thinking the best thing to do here is ignore everything the ship says.

*Cody stares at the star with a kind of awe on his face, eyes flickering green*

*Gortick exits Aren's ship and sighs in relief*

Gortick: Phew. You wouldn't believe the fight we just got through. The orks? Elella brought them.

Elella: She was dying...I couldn't leave her...haven't enough people died today?

Gortick: You're forgetting they tried to KILL US. *He turns to the Orks* Right then, let's be having you!

Vidar: I wouldn't recommend that child. The ship doesn't like being ignored, and if you upset it then it will start playing with you... You just need to learn what the ship is serious about and what it is joking about.

And yes the ship is serious, we will be flying into a star very shortly, its very intersting to watch.

*Heimdall takes a seat and looks at Marin*

Heimdall: There are always ways around things and exceptions. Those things may have started out alive but were enhanced or possible othery ways.

*Svafa, drawing her sword*

Svafa: Hold on Gortick, you are not going to bring enemies onto this ship. Unless of course you mean for them to be executed.

Exterior

*The Asgardried closes upon the the star, runes hidden upon the hull begin to glow a dark red color, at first slowly pulstating, as the ship came near the blue giant the pluses of the runes quickens.

Then the ship plunges into the swirling hot gases of the star heading for the core. THe Asgardried shudders from violent internal winds of the star as passes through oceans of gases. As the ship nears the stars core, the hull takes on an liquid appearance to it.*

Asgardried: Hey your still alive, wonder what will happen when we penatrate the core...

"I think at this point, we're all wondering that," Elaina quipped. At Vidar's comments, she seemed to relax. If those words were all that one of the Aesir cared to give, then they couldn't be overly concerned with what would happen to them. And if they weren't, Elaina would just relax. She could tell when an event was above her level of understanding and this was one such event.

"Vidar is right," Tanara murmured softly, staring out the window. "It is interesting."

OOS: You're right. Elella's line there sucked. *Edits*

As for Gortick, once again he's speaking British. "Let's be having you," is a phrase traditionally associated with the British Police Force, telling a prisoner or convict to move.

*Idun, stands and walks over to Elaina*

Idun *quietly*: Elaina, be mindful of the actions of others. If there was any type of danger, Vidar, Heimdall, and Ragnar would not be relaxing here in the lounge. For now relax and enjoy the show, You'll be going back to your training with Idona soon.


Heimdall *to Marin*: There is little to like, We very well likely just added a new enemy to our list. All we can do is prepare as best we can, speaking of which, Svafa is pleased with the progress your making.

Elaina nodded, smiled and relaxed completely. Armed with this new information, she was convinced there was nothing to worry about. The sisters' eyes were locked on one of the windows. Thoughtfully, Tanara addressed the ship.

"Asgardried," she said, "I'm curious. How often do you get the urge to do things most people consider utterly impossible, but should have no concerns in doing while inside you?"

Elaina laughed and shook her head. "Good question."

Asgardried: Often.

Vidar: The ship sustained damage during the rescue, so its repairing itself, otherwise we would not be flying through a star.
------------------------

Exterior

Just before the Asgardried breaches the Star's core, the hull takes on a translucent quality. The swirls of gases can been seen now directly through the hull, with pulses of light. The the asgardried is past the core and the translucents fades.

"Amazing," Elaina murmured, all concern for her safety completely forgotten. Tanara was curious.

"Is the star a method of repair or a shelter to use while repairing?" she wondered.

Cargo Bay

*Guy exits his ship, walking slowly towards the group*

K'Warra: So, introductions all around. *indicating the Aesir* Here we have Ancient Warriors Numbers One through Three. I don't know their names, but it doesn't matter, since they don't like talking to strangers anyway. Next we have Gortick and Ellela, the sentimental amateur Jedi you can thank for saving you. The sleeping man is Matt and the blind man you see limping towards you is Jonathan the White Hat. Or as he likes to be called on weekdays, "Guy". You two, if I'm not mistaken, are named Jeramine and Kiri, and I could've sworn we've met before. *He taps his chin* Isn't it about now that the two prisoners give their captors a reason to let them live?

Jeramine: *baring her teeth* I don't care what you want to do with me. But I'll kill you before I let you touch my sister.

K'Warra: Surely you're not trying to make me laugh.

Vidar: Both actually. Stars are very nice safe havens.

Cargo Hold

Svafa: If they know something then they had best tell us now if they want any chance of avoiding execution. In fact I think since K'Warra has such a nice friendship with them and knows them so well he should have the honor of extracting such information as he sees fit. If they die in the process I'm sure we can all forgive K'Warra.

K'Warra: I have to admit, I have a few questions I've waited a long time to ask. Happens when you're kept in a cage for months on end being moved from place to place with no one telling you what position on the game board you're in. So, what's the big secret, Jeramine? What's this mess all about?

Jeremaine: ...Are you serious? *Her eyes flick over the others in the room; Guy, Orthos, Ellela, Gortick, Svafa, Viddall, and Idona in turn* They haven't told you?

*After nobody says anything*

K'Warra: Haven't told me what?

Jeramine: The idiot quest these people are following.

K'Warra: I don't think they needed to tell me that. I figured it out nicely on my own. *looking at the others, still silent* Though they never bothered to tell me for what.

Jeramine: *speaking quickly* A weapon. Something that can destroy anything, everything - grants power over life and death. That's why we needed you and the reality shifter - in case they got there first. They won't tell you anything? I will. Only protect my sister from them. I swear it on the fire of the Underland.

Lounge

Marin: That's encouraging. Thank you. *She is silent for a minute* You know, I never would've pictured me as a sword-swinging fighter. I guess desparate times... and all that.

((For Admiral, because he complained about Drago not being scary enough.))

Tarsis, the Renari Mountains, Tavada Gap.

*The pass between the two mountains was over a mile and a hald wide. 5,000 spearmen in mail shirts stood shoulder to shoulder in five ranks, their shields locked together, spears down. Behind them stood 3,000 longbowmen, each with 30 shafts driven into the ground in front of them. The right flank of the formation was hard up against the mountain side, on the left flank stood two hundred swordsmen, in mail shirts and helm with mail veils, each weilding a two handed sword with a four-foot blade.

Between the infantry and the left side of the pass, 400 cavalrymen in heavy mail-and-scale armour, behind then 90 horse archers in leather breastplates. In the centre of the formation sat 12 men on huge warhorses, each wearing full face helms, scale shirts, greeves, bracers and green cloaks. In their centre sat a man in black armour, his cloak the colour of dried blood, engraved on his helm were two serpents-dragons, wings spread, caught the act of breathing fire down on theirs victims.

A young leutenant turned to the black garbed General.*

Leutenant: Lord, we cannot hold them. Our scouts say there are at least 15,000 spearmen and 2,000 cavalry.

Drago: In four hours Ironwall will be here with 12,000 spears and 6,000 archers, we must hold till then.

Leutenant: We won't hold. two hours lord, let alone four.

Drago: We'll hold, we have no choice.

*The ground infront of the Agamari army was covered in long grass, and slopped away gently to the plain below. In the distance the enemy were beggining to mass.

((BD: Um, no. I don't recall ever complaining the Drago wasn't scary, nor do I really care...))

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Svafa: He never asked...

Lounge

Heimdall: Rarely do we picture ourselves as what we are going to be.

Asgardried: True very true, never imagined I would have a wedding inside me.

Heimdall:What did you imagine yourself as?

Exterior

*As the asgardried leaves the star's core its hull returns to its normal state. The ship rocks gently as hit hits more turbulance on the way out. Finally it leaves the star, the hull still glowing blue, with red runes along it, and what appeared as drakes racing along the outside. This all quickly fades as the ship moves away from the star.*

((OOS: Admiral, just an FYI: He did ask. [True, he never asked Svafa, but still]

BD: I'm not sure anyone ever complained about Drago not being scary...))

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

*Jeramine's eyes flicker*

K'Warra: Why would I ask, when I can find out in a way as amusing as this?

Guy: We aren't going to kill you, or your sister, unless you try to attack us. *to Svafa* Once I retrieve my ship, I can separate from you again and keep these two prisoner aboard it. It's possible they can be of use retrieving Aidan.

Marin: A diplomat. My father was one of the greatest our nation had... and I always planned to, well, follow in his footsteps.

((Ah, I stand corrected. It was late at night. What I meant to say was, "Admiral has complained about Drago being nothing more than a drunken barbarian and yet he seems to think he's something else."))

((BD: Again, never complained and I don't care if Drago is a great military commander, or a drunken barbarian. The Aesir see Drago as little more then a drunk, and that probably will not be changing.))

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Svafa: They have already attacked us Guy. There only hope is to tell us everything they know right now or they will be killed. I am also very content in allowing K'Warra his choice in how slow and painful their death should be.

*To Jeramine* You have as of now ten seconds to begin to talk. You may begin with who are your masters, why they are attacking us, and what were their plans with the ones they captured.

K'Warra can determine your punishments if we do not believe you are being honest with us.
---------------------------------

Lounge

Heimdall: I see. Svafa is having you concentrate on the marshal aspects of being a swordswoman, which are more important to your survival. However, there is more to being an Aesiran swordsman or woman then just fighting. One must not just know how to use a sword, but when and when talking is better than fighting.

If you still want to be a diplomat don't give up, just because you know how to fight.

((No, you haven't hit a nerve. Just telling you I never complained. Its not my place to complain about how your character is as long as he isn't violating something or something doesn't fit. *IE suddenly he becomes a god*.

If your going to the trouble of showing me Drago is a great commander or what have you. Thats fine, but if your trying to do so my opinion of Drago changes well my opinion doesn't matter. Keep in mind that while the Aesir are my creation, they are not me. So where I may think one thing the Aesir by their nature may think another.

Why are you so interested in having the Aesir on Tarsis?))

((Oh, okay, its just sometimes your post seem a little abrupt, mind you you can probably say the same about me. I'm not going to any trouble, I wanted to show this for a while, I just needed an excuse. As to having the Aesir on Tarsis, aside from everyone hating their guts and wanting to kill them, there's more than one reason for this, they're going to get a bit of a shock.))

((Oh, I'm faily confident this one will shock someone, if it doesn't shock the Aesir it'll definately give Admiral a bit of a jump. ))

*The Enemy army begin to advance up the pass, 12,000 orcish infantry, man-beasts seven feet tall in chainmail with shields and axes, behind them came 3,000 crossbow armed orks, also armoured. Behind these came two thousand black garbed hell riders with lances. As the enemy aproached the Agamari checked bow strings, eased swords, and lifted shields.

The twelve houseguards in the centre with Drago shifted in their saddles, and strung their recurve bows.*

Drago: *Adressing the troops.* Men! Today the enemy is at our gates, beyond this pass lie our heartlands, beyond this pass lie your women and your children. If we fail today then your sons will die and your wives and daughters will be raped be the monsters you see before you.

Hold the line, for four hours. Spearmen, hold your ground, be our wall. Archers, mark your targets and slay them with the rath of Donar! Horsemen, let your charge be such that the very earth shakes!

Let no man die save on his feet with his weapon in his hand and his wounds in the front and may the great god Tyr send us to the halls of the Holy Dead!

*Drago's speech is greated with a chear, and then the Agamari begin to sing. As the enemy advance continues the singing rises and falls, now a battle song, now the melancholy lay of dead heros.*

((Darnit BD, why did you have to use "ork"? I used the misspelling specifically because I figured eventually someone would introduce the stereotypical 100% evil orcs, and I wanted to keep them separate... ))

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Jeramine: You think I don't know that you know this already? I have no masters. My sister and I were hired by Syndicate agents. We were to obtain one or more of you for a magic-extraction ritual, so some other idiots could duplicate your quest. Also, some of the Shadows wanted to kill him *pointing at Guy* but that wasn't in my contract.

----------

Lounge

Marin: Why do you say that? I have no nation, no home anymore. My future, if it goes as planned, will be to erase all this once we get the Time Matrix. If it goes wrong I'll be dead. I could entertain old dreams, but it wouldn't change anything.

((BD: Hate to inform you I tend not to be shocked by text. Now if say you somehow managed to suck me into the computer and land me into PTH, then yes I will be shocked. That aside I doubt it))

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Svafa: Do you know why the shadows want to kill him and why don't you pretend I don't know anything and tell me everything they told you.

------------------------
Lounge

Heimdall: You do have a home Marin, among us and this ship. As far as why I say that, I have lived a very long time and been through a number of prophecies, the end results are not always what you expect them to be. Besides that, we have twenty odd years left to finish the quest. At some point in that time we may very well need to use diplomacy to achieve our objective.

There is another possiblity, what if after we reset everything we retain our memories of what happens. Similar things happened when my father died before.

Asgardried: Cargo Hold

Jeramine: *in a disgusted tone* They want to kill him because his brother and sister are Shadows and they feel he betrayed the family, not to mention he was very trusted as Shadows go and has dangerous information. Why do you expect that I know everything? I'm a sellsword. I took this job because the Syndicate outbid everyone else. *looking around at everyone in the room, trying to read their faces* You want me to lead you to where they took the slave? Fine, I don't care. My contract is obviously up.
