• Donation Drive: We're looking to pull in enough donations to cover the server expenses for August and September ($140). Rest assured that the website will remain paid regardless of whether we meet our goal, but things will be financially tight for us until about mid September. Any donations that come in, in the interim, will really help ease things for us. See donation information for further details as well as information about our donation process. Thank you!

    Avenpeak Mountains

    Blearily, Cinaed opened his eyes, Jason's voice echoing as muffled, unclear noises in his ears through the haze of slumber. The cold ached in his bones, damp snow clinging to his hair and clothes. He was used to the chill by now, but this was worse. He wondered how long he'd been lying there. He...

    "Coming from," Val answered. "On our way out to distant parts to do good, I'm sure it's a story you've heard a thousand times before. And yourselves? You mentioned you were travellers. What's the journey?" When Castala brought the mead over, Val gave her an appreciative nod, though his eyes...

    Amarathia The Queensway

    "I've never been good at this game," Val murmured, shaking his head. "Amarathian games all have far too many layers for my tastes." Despite his complaints, he seemed happy enough to join in. His eyes flicked over to Castala and Isaiyl, but his mouth merely quirked upwards in a smirk upon...

    Amarathia The Queensway

    Val gave Castala an appraising look as she walked over, raising an eyebrow at the invitation. She and her companion looked like the sorts that would happily fleece the group for everything they were worth, but thankfully for Val, that wasn't a particularly large number right now. Maybe that...

    "What, the inn?" the man managed to quip in response before the creature lunged. He ducked down as it did, using the cover of the counter to force it to bound over his head and give him time to retaliate before being pounced on. He deftly plucked up another of the orbs of light and flicked it...

    Val let out a good natured laugh at Abel. "It's no matter. I'm not bothered, but others might be. I simply wouldn't want to see you come to harm for not knowing, aye?" He turned then to Isaiyl, offering the windrider a grin. "Consider yourself forgiven. This close to the city we've little chance...

    Amarathia The Queensway

    Val chuckled again, shaking his head. "Ahh, let's head inside, I'll explain over a drink." Taking a moment to leave Soris in the care of the stable-hand, Val gestured for Abel to follow him into the inn. The interior was rustic and simple, and relatively busy, but Val managed to find them a...

    Val blinked, taken aback by the gesture, and left stunned for a brief moment before he recovered himself and gave a small laugh. "I think we're going to have to have a talk about the er, connotations of certain affectionate gestures in general society later, Abel," he said, grinning and shaking...

    Amarathia The Queensway

    The sun was low in the sky by the time Val and the rest of his party arrived at their first stop, the town of Andoril. One of the closest towns to the capital, it was a prosperous settlement with high walls hailing from its earlier years, when the lands around it had been far from safe. Whilst a...

    "No need," Val called across to Kian. "Isaiyl is handling our scouting, and we're better off riding together if something undesirable does happen upon us. For the first few days that shouldn't be an issue, since we'll be within more heavily patrolled lands. With luck, we'll have no incidents...

    Amarathia The Queensway

    The Queensway is the large, branching main road out of Amarathia City that cuts through much of the more civilised regions of Amarathia. Regularly patrolled by the Amarathian military and watched over by the windriders, the road provides a relatively safe route of travel to many of the nation's...

    "You'd have to make the trip across to Auredine," Val answered. "And be ready to pay a lot of coin, or else earn the favour of the Arbor Watch or an Ellunae - easier said than done, as an outsider! There's not many from outside the forest that find favour in those parts, these days." He frowned...

    Val raised an eyebrow at being nuzzled, but wrote it off as the star simply not having the same sorts of boundaries that most mortals did. He cast a glance back at Abel when he peeked forwards. "My cloak? It was a farewell gift from home, of sylvani make. Never found one better since. They weave...

    Val chuckled, grinning back at Abel. "Not at all. It's perhaps a little friendlier than I'd normally get with someone after just a day, but needs must, eh?" He patted the star on the arm, then turned back to face forwards. Close as he was, Abel might notice that Val's cloak was surprisingly...

    "Isaiyl sent word to me that he's going to scout the road ahead for us on his griffin, so we're all here now," Val smiled and nodded his head to Amma. With Nesta safely returned to the stables, the hunter walked back over to Soris, his own mount, and nimbly slung himself into the saddle. He cast...

    Val frowned at Kian, shaking his head. "If you're going to be joining us, you need to show a little more maturity than that," he warned, his voice a touch sterner than it had been before. "You're lucky she didn't rear, or kick. Either you or Abel could have been seriously hurt. I won't tolerate...

    Val winced, stepping around the slightly perturbed steed to lend Abel a hand in getting up. "Try a little less momentum next time..." he advised with a chuckle, as Kian launched into his garbled explanation. "Let's focus on getting you on the horse, first," he suggested. "Try not to swing so...

    "You've ..." Val paused, and sighed. "Of course you haven't. I could probably have guessed that. Right..." He rubbed at his temples briefly, glancing over at the horses. "Well, we have a little time before the others show up. I'll see if the stablemaster has any horses that'd be suited to a...

    Val turned at Abel's enthusiastic greeting, smiling upon recognising him. "Morning, twinkle-toes," he replied with a grin of his own. "You're looking ruffled today. Long night?" When Kian emerged, his eyebrows rose to see him drenched and miserable. When the boy relayed the circumstances of how...

    Val nodded with a sombre expression, watching the door after Abel had gone for several long moments before turning back to her. "Yes! Well, let's hope none of them catch ear of it, eh? I can't see many eccentric academics taking much interest in an expedition like this, present company excluded...
