    Setting

    [​IMG]

    On The Edge Of The Continent's Massive Grassy Plains, Not Far From The Forested Mountain Range, Settles The Trade City Of "Lac Quin". The City Holds No Formal Armed Forces, Holds No Alliance To Any Major City, And Is Self Sufficient In It's Daily Workings. The Small Guilds Within This City Provide It Protecting From The Beasts Of The Plains And Forest, As Well As Any Bandits Or Armed Force Looking to Overtake The City. Governed By The Leaders Of The Three Most Prominent Guilds In The City, The Town Remains Secure And Stable. The "Shadow Eclipse" Guild Is One Such Guild. Each Member Of The Guild Takes Missions And Jobs Of All Kinds From The People of The City, Commissioned To Them. This Could Range From A Simple Lost Item Job To Slaying A Bandit Leader In His Own Camp. While Other Guilds May Be More Specialized, The Shadow Eclipse Guild Remains Flexible And Reliable. With Each Guild Member Being Offered Free Lodging Within The Guild Hall, A Member Is Expected To Complete At least Enough Jobs Every Month To Pay For Their Room, Beyond That, They Are Completely Free To Accept Or Deny Jobs As They Wish. However, When An Job Is Issued Via The Guild Leader, That Job Is Mandatory.Thought The Guild Knows No Specialty, They Hold A Strong Sense Of Loyalty And Honor. Disputes Between Members Is Kept In-House, And Dealt With As Such.

    Laurayne Settles Back In Her Chair, Leaning Back On Two Legs With Her Feet Crisscrossed On The Table As She Listens To Yet Another Man Try To Convince Her To Let Them Station Troops Within The City For "Protection". About Halfway Through A Sentence, He Was Interrupted By The Chair She Was Sitting In Thudding Back Flat On The Floor.

    "Listen Here Admiral. We Have Never, And Will Never Allow Any Armed Force To Station Themselves Within These Walls. If You Wish To Do Business Here, By All Means, Feel Free. Peruse The Vendors, Browse The Shops, Hire A Guild For A Job, Whatever. But As Long As You Remain Allied With Any City Military, You Are Not To Carry Weapons Of Any Kind On These Streets. Likewise, The Use Of magic Within The City is Under Life Or Death Basis Only. We Protect This City. The Proud Guilds Of Loc Quin, And I'll Be Damned If Some Hoity Toity Military Man Is Going To Come In Here Causing Trouble."

    With That Said, Laurayne Finally Paused To Take A Sip Of The Milk She Had Herself On The Table, Never Removing Her Eyes From The Clearly Perturbed Admiral Of Loc Quin's Closest Navel Capital, The City Of Tides Aqu.

    When She'd Set Her Cup Down Again And The Admiral Had Not Continued, She Motioned For One of The Newly Promoted Capitans, Mitsurugi, To Escort the Admiral Out Of The Guild Hall.

    "Mitsurugim If Youd Be So Kind As to Show The Admiral His Way Out..."

    Hearing the command given Mitsurugi turned around towards the table and walked over. "Admiral right this way please." he said politely. The admiral outraged mumbled under his breath, Mitsurugi was able to hear it but didn't openly acknowledge it. As he escorted the Admiral out he wondered about what the man next to him had said a moment ago, 'What's he planning to do?' he thought, Mitsurugi grew up without any type of military. Born in such a small village the military only ever came for fish or for rest, all they had for defense was a militia. 'I should tell Laurayne what I just heard then we can figure this out.

    After reaching the entrance Mitsurugi stopped the Admiral, "Have a good day sir" he said as he bowed. The admiral turned away from him and grunted as he stormed off. Gathering himself Mitsurugi went back to the table where his leader awaited, ready to report. "My lady as the Admiral was leaving I heard him mutter something under his breath." He said hoping to get her attention. "He said that this won't be the last time we see him and his military, he said and I quote 'We'll have this city someday soon, whether you're here or not.' I am wondering what he means by this m'am?"

    Laurayne Waved Her Hand To Brush The News Aside.

    "Don't Worry Too Much About It Mitsurugi, You're Still New Here, But I'll Have You Know Over The Years We've Had to Fend Off Advance After Advance From All Types of Militaries."

    Laurayne Leaned Back in Her Chair Again, Relaxing As She Stretched out Her Bored Muscles. She Knew Exactly How She Looked At The Moment. If You Thought She Was Laid Back, Undisciplined, Lazy, Arrogant.... You Might Be Right. However, In Her Downtime, She Enjoys Being As Relaxed As Possible To Make Up For Her Strict Training And Guild Affairs.

    "He Is Just The Latest Mouse Stumbling His Way Into Our Den. When The Time Comes, We'll Confront Him, Give Him A Spanking, And Send Him on His Way..."

    But With That, One Of The Ear Atop Her Head Twitched Slightly At A Small Inaudible Thump Outside The Wooden Window Of The Room. Knowing The Recruit Could Hear It Too, She Waved Him Off Before He Moved.

    "Maybe Sooner Then Anticipated, But it's No Matter. The Sooner The Better. You're Dismissed."

    Mitsrugi bowed before he left, the noise he had heard intrigued him but it was nothing of his concern at the moment. He decided to head towards his room and get his equipment, he was going to go fishing at the local lake. When he reached his room he found a large box on his bed. When he took the lid off he saw a note on top of whatever was in it, the note read:
    "Mitsurugi, your father and I are so proud of you making your own way in the world. We know that you are in one of the guilds now in Lac Quin, that can be a dangerous job but we know you will be alright. Please if you need anything don't hesitate to write to us.

    The village elder has told us that the military was spotted recently around the area and that bandit raids are going on frequently. Please be careful you're all we have in the world that we value.

    Love, your mother Aya

    P.S. The fisherman in the village have heard rumors of a sea monster somewhere around your end of the continent. We know that you want to help others like you did for our village. Here are some ointments and fish traps that we thought you could use on the job."

    Mitsurugi put the letter down on his bed and proceeded to pull out the ointment and fishing supplies. These weren't just regular traps that his village had made but were sort of buoy traps. You place a large slab of meat on a hook on one end of a chain which goes down into the ocean, connected on the other end of the chain was a buoy with a bell and a lantern. When the chain is pulled hard enough the bell rings and the lantern lights up.

    "These must have cost a fortune." he said as he placed the three traps he had received onto a rack on his wall. "But this sea monster rumor is troubling, I must ask around town and see if any traveler has heard anything." Mitsurugi closed the door to his room not even caring to go on his little fishing trip at the local lake anymore, and headed for the local tavern.

    After The Meeting, Laurayne took A Stroll Threw The Streets Of The City. She Stopped By Her Favorite Weapons Stalls And Paid Some Greetings Before Walking Up the Steps And Sitting In Front Of The Door Of The City's Second Most Powerful Guild (She Refuses To Say They Are Evenly Matched With Shadow Eclipse), The Jade Lotus Guild. After A Few Moments, A Woman Wearing A Blue Corset That Showed off Her breasts And Hip Hugging Jeans, Emerged From The Door And Sat Next To Her On The Stoop.

    "And What Brings The Ever Busy Leader Of The Shadow Eclipse Guild To Our End of The Plaza?"

    The Woman Chuckled And Hugged Laurayne For A Moment, Who Returned The Short Greeting.

    "Hey, It's Been A Bit Tivvy. Got Some News."

    At That, The Other Woman Got Noticeably Flustered.

    "Ugh, I Told You Not To Call Me That Anymore. I'm A Guild Leader Now Too You Know. Call Me Tivona Already!"

    Laurayne Just Chuckled Before Looking Her In The Eye With A Much More Composed Face.

    "Seems The "Mighty Admiral" Is Making His Move Soon. Have You Gotten Things Ready?"

    Tivona Almost Looked Offended At The Question.

    "You Know I Do. No One In This Entire City Can Make A Deal Like I Can. We Have Four Frigates On Loan To Us From The Maryweather Shipyard And Crews To Man Each. You Aren't Concerned You'll Need more Though?"

    This Time it Was Laurayne's Turn To Look Offened.

    "My Dear Tivvy, You Know Now One In This World Puts Up As Much A Fight As I Do!"

    With That, Laurayne Sprang To Her Feet And Winked At Her Friend Before Dashing Off Back To Her Guild Hall.

    Upon Arriving, She Relayed To The Hall's Secretary, A Younger Girl Who Knows How To Relay A Message Better Then Anyone In The Guild, Either By Radio Or Messenger Hawk.

    "Lana, Send Out At Notice. I Need Three Members Skilled At Ship To Ship Battle On The Sea."

    "Yes Ma'am!"

    Once Mitsurugi made it to the tavern he asked a couple of weary travelers if they had heard any rumors of sea monsters in the area lately. Most of them had mentioned how they had heard something fishy going on right off the coast. There were rumors that the military fleets were moving and that the local traders and fisherman were being harassed but nothing about a monster. As soon as Mitsurugi had given up hope an old man approached Mitsurugi while he was at the bar.

    "I was out at sea on my way here from a city far west...and about half a days ride from here we heard some strange noises coming from around us." He said, he took something from his pouch and placed it on the bar in front of him. "When we got here I searched the outside of the ship and found this scale...whatever it was it was giant and it was searching for something."

    Mitsurugi picked up the scale and examined it. "This is strange, I haven't seen a scale like this in years. Old man where did you say you heard that noise?" Mitsurugi turned looking for the man but couldn't find him. As soon as Mitsurugi was about to sit down, a hawk came into the tavern through the messenger bird keep.

    "Mitsurugi. Message for you from the guild." the tavern master said as he handed him the message. "Well," he said with a look of worry on his face. "Time to get ready for battle."

    He showed up at the guild headquarters with his spear in hand and what little armor he did wear on. 'Now let's see who else shows up.' he thought to himself.

    Laurayne Walked Back Into The Guild Hall At A Brisk Pace, Looking Around the Main Gathering Room.

    "Lana, What Happened? I Asked For 3 Members, Only Mitsurugi Is Here?"

    "Ma'am, You Asked For Members Who Would Be Good In A Naval Battle. Currently, Mitsurugi Is The Only Member We Have That Isn't Currently Out On Another Job With Any Experience On A Ship." Lana Said Matter-Of-Factly As She Flipped Through Paperwork In Her Hands. "Actually, It Seems The only Other 2 Members Still Within The City Right Now Are Those Two New Kid Recruits We Picked Up. I Highly Doubt They Have Any Experience On A Boat, Let Alone Fighting."

    "That's All There Is, Huh? That Makes it more Complicated." Laurayne Said, Scratching Her head In Thought. "I Guess I Don;t Have Much Of A Choice Then. Prepare The Recruits. They;re Mages Right? Their Magics Should be Useful For Something Out There."

    Lana Was Started At The Order. "Ma'am! With All Due Respect, Don't You Think Sending Two Recruits Out For Their First Mission To A Military Battle Is Asking Too Much?"

    Laurayne Just Smirked. "Lana, You've Been Here A Few Years, So You Should Know. In All My Time here As The Leader of Shadow Eclipse, How Many Times Has A member Come back Injured When I Was With Them?"

    "..... I Understand Ma'am. Just Don;t Push Them Too Hard, Their Still New To This."

    "Yeah Yeah..." Laurayne Said Chuckleing, A Smile Covering Her Lips At The Anticipated Battle. "Robin! Leo! Get Your Green Asses Out Here, We Have A Mission!" She Yelled Out To The Guild Rooms Upstairs.

    Leo heard his name and stiffened from the spell book he was studying. He put a book mark in the page he was in and went to the door, poking his head out slightly. Buddy, his Cat like companion, scurried up his body and also peered out the door and down the hall. Leo saw the guild leader with a odd expression upon her face. "A mission?" he thought to himself.

    "Be.. Be right there." He quietly yelled back.

    "What are you yelling about?" Robin asked as she stretched out and yawned.

    "The lady, she says she has a mission for us. But I dont want to..." Leo was interrupted.

    "Its not up to you. They are feeding us, they are giving us a safe place to live, and best of all, they are showing us how to really use our magic effectively. If they ask us a favor in return, we do it! Understand?" Robin barked as she put on her boots and prepared herself to meet with the leader.

    "Yes sis..." Leo said as he lowered his head and also got prepared to go out.

    "I hope it is something really fun. They have been teaching me this new technique with fire, and I am really excited to try it out on some slob who really deserves it." Robin said to herself chuckling.

    After getting formally dressed and ready, Robin started jogging down the hall and practically flying down the stairs. Leo shuffled behind her at a fastened pace with Buddy firmly mounted on his shoulder. Robin casually stood before Laurayne, "You called for us ma'am?" Leo found his way to behind his sister grabbing onto the back of her shirt and partially hiding behind her. While his head was pointed to the ground, his kept eye contact with Laurayne. He has trained himself to keep eye contact with those speaking with him, "baby steps..." he thought to himself.

    Laurayne looked Over The Two, But More To The Girl.

    "I Like Your Attitude Kid! You Look Like One Who's Itching To Show What Shes Got.Still Pretty Green, But You got Guts And Potential. Your Brother Though..." She Looked To The Boy Next. "He May Be Powerful, But Hes Got Some Issues In The Self Esteem Department Doesn't He? You Should Be On The Same Ship Then."

    She Turned To Mitsurugi next To Speak. "I Want You To Fill them In On The basics of Being On A Boat. Crash Course In Balance And Aiming. We Have 2 Hours Before The Ships Head Out. I Suggest You Be Ready."

    "Thanks ma'am, Leo doesnt really do so well on his own, he is quite dependent on me. That and I really dont want to leave him either. I am so excited to finally get out there and pull our weight around here. You wont be disappointed with us." Robin announced.

    "But sis..." Leo started.

    "Not now!" Robin whispered sternly back at him.

    Robin turns to Mitsurugi after Laurayne speaks to him awaiting his instruction.

    Mitsurugi bowed his head slightly and turned to the two new recruits before him.

    "Alright, there are many tricks to avoiding seasickness which is one of the many important factors in any ship to ship battle." He said waiting for a chuckle of some sort but glad to see that they were both listening carefully. "Now there is only one thing that I want you to do, stay on deck and keep yourself busy, the more you are doing the faster your body gets used to the motions." He exclaimed and closed his eyes.

    "Now after you have that out of the way everything should be easy, since you are magic users your aim will be a bit off which can be a problem, the trick is a bit of the same for archers, instead of trying to aim for one person or one precise spot I want you to aim at one small area. With the back in forth of the ships if you aim like this correctly you will hit your mark every time."
    Mitsurugi opened one of his eyes to see if the children were still listening.
    "Alright, sea sickness = check, Aim = check, now last but not least...defense."

    Mitsurugi continued his teaching which involved many ways to defend a ship when under attack, including watching for boarding parties and what to do if they board your ship, he taught them how to tell where the wind was blowing and a couple of basic what to do's if your ship was being bombarded.

    "...and finally," he said as he gasped for air. "stick close to the experts."

    Once finished Mitsurugi got a couple of bottles from behind him and threw them to the kids in front of him.

    "Don't drink too much of that or you will be sick." he took his own bottle out and drunk a couple of sips from it while keeping an eye out for Lana or Laurayne.

    Robin catches the bottle as Leo steps back and lets his bottle land on the floor. It landed with a thud as everyone held their breath until they were sure it didnt break open. Robin took a sip of the drink and immediately made a face as she forced it down. She capped the drink and awkwardly thanked Mitsurugi.

    "Leo, this stuff isnt for you. Hand Mitsurugi his bottle back." Robin ordered.

    Leo picked up the bottle and handed it back to Mitsurugi with his head bowed the whole time, but eyes on Mitsurugi.

    "Thank you sir." Leo barely whispers.

    Mitsurugi held the bottle in his hand but kept his arm extended, "It's for the seasickness it's a home remedy, it tastes terrible at first but after a while you get used to it. Are you sure you won't be needing it?" he asked politely.

    Leo looks over at his sister. Robin shakes her head.

    "No thank you. I should be fine." He stammers.

    "He has his own home remedy if you will. He is a healing mage." She says before taking another drink. She still shows signs of forcing the drink down, then shakes it off. "Ahh..."

    "Oh, well in that case." He says as he puts the bottle in a pounch behind him. "My name is Mitsurugi Moto," he said as he extended his hand towards the brother and sister while smiling. "I am a Captain in the guild, and I guess we'll be working with each other today."

    Leo takes a step back and hugs Buddy like a teddy bear. Robin steps forward and extends her hand and shakes with Mitsurugi.

    "Im Robin, and that is Leo. We. We Dont have surnames." She says look back at her brother. "Leo is... Shy. And I know he doesnt look like much, but when the action begins, there is no one I would trust more to keep me up. He is really good for his age. I am more the novice. But I can hold my own too. It is nice to meet you Mitsurugi."

    Robin looks over at Leo, "say hello duffis!" she ordered.

    "Um, hello Mr. Moto. Its. Its nice to meet you." Leo stammered out.

    Laurayne Looked Everyone Over And Clapped Her Hands For Attention, No Longer Showing The Laid Back Takeing It Easy Leader From Earlier.

    "Alright, Time For The Briefing." She Turned To Lara Who immediately Nodded And Laid Out Paperwork On The Table For Everyone To Look Over. The Papers Showed Information Regarding The Navy Forces Of Aqu, Ship Types, Styles, Weapons, And Even Names Of Personnel. Lana Was Very Skilled At Trading And Obtaining Valuable Information Threw The City's Networks And Guilds.

    "This Is Going To Be A Naval Battle Aboard Ships Against The Military Navy Of Aqu. They Are A Force Of !0 Smaller Boarding Ships And 4 Larger Ships With Large Cannons On Board. We Will Be Engaging Them With 4 Ships On Loan To Us From The Merchants Guilds. These Guys Think That They Can Come Into Our City And Take Over The Place." She Smirked. "Were Going To Give Them A Harsh Reminder Of Just Who They're Messing With!" She Pounded A Fist On The Table. "Were Going To Punish Them And Send Them Home With A Message. No One, I Mean NO ONE Pushes Around The People Of Lac Quin While We Still Draw Breath!" Her Lust For A Good Fight Showing Clear.

    Mitsurugi looked at the information placed before him and asked "Will there be any other guilds out there with us?" not worried but more with a look of wonderment. He looked at the blueprints of the ships that they would be using looking for spots of weakness where the enemy would try to board. "There are a lot of those boarding ships, what are our plans to deal with them?"
