Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

The confidence instilled by her findings in the garden overrode any dismay at leaving the study empty-handed. However flimsy Mr. Flynn's strategy may seem, it also seemed to be working. Part of her, the part that still refused to believe any magic was at work in her, didn't like that-- didn't like b...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

Chuffy and Johann set off with the group. Johann kept quiet, feeling like an outsider and a fourth wheel. Or is it fifth wheel? Cars have 4. Am I just the last or an extra? Thee German pondered this for awhile until Willow exclaimed something and drew his attention. "Neat! I've never seen one of tho...

Re: [Prologue] Hitting Home

The rage filling Camilla as Niall ran off to recover the magical device she had just cleared to a safe distance was immeasurable. She couldn't deny that there was a good chance he was correct, but he'd also undermined the entire team's safety. She didn't notice the men of her squad taking slow steps...

Re: [Prologue] Hitting Home

Camilla charged over and punted the cube out of the alleyway. She paused just long enough to watch it land and feel certain there would be no explosion before turning to Cormac. "Good thing it was." Then she walked back to the police officer and reiterated: she was offering the services of her squad...

Re: [Prologue] Hitting Home

Camilla curtly supplied answers before retaliating with her own. "The entire guard? Absurd. Coups are power plays for politics, religion, or abuse. So unless the entire guard is comprised of separatists or converts, you've got a bigger problem. But that's for important people to resolve. Point us to...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Jane nodded, a little miffed that she hadn't had the wherewithal to hold her tongue until they'd left the lion's den. As they walked, she quietly added, "To be fair, I've got a sinking suspicion the little tourism gal already has the scent."

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

Johann smiled at the triclops. "I bathed today, if that's what you mean. And Chuffy did too!" He gave the dog a good scratch on his flank then presented the flowers to the end of his skull. Chuffy breathed deep then tilted his head, as if processing. Johann was distracted by the instructor. "That wa...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Feeling pretty confident that she had what she needed, Jane retreated to the confines of the museum and sought out Mr. Flynn in the library. She found him there as expected, trawling old tomes for clues. "Mr. Flynn," she murmured. "I've definitely got something. In the garden, there's some statues: ...

Re: [Episode 1] A Practical Morning Exercise

"Oh." Johann smiled sheepishly. "Sorry Mrs. Flynn, the schedule says Mrs. Erikson. I'm Johann Krieger, nev-- novice norco-- narec..." He huffed in frustration and tried more slowly. " Nov. Ice. Nec. Ro. Man. Cer. " he beamed. "There, I got it! Sometimes I have trouble with long words." He scratched ...

Re: [Prelude] In the Pursuit of Knowledge

Jane thanked the guide with a smile and watched them depart. Might as well start at the bottom. She moved east, inspected it with mild interest and then headed for the sundial, which stood between Felix and Paul. After some scrutiny, she pressed on, intending to gather all the data before jumping to...
