Arrival to the Arios island

'Why am I on thissss sssship?' A sudden thought came to Xanasss mind as he stood on the wet deck looking at the endless body of water. Sails flapped as the small boat made unnoticeable progress through the murky waters. It has been a very long time since he left his clan and ventured into the 'civilissssed' word of mammals but it felt as if it was just yesterday. Him, arriving to the city of Nexus Prime, joining the Brotherhood of Steel. The test that he had to pass to prove that he was worthy to serve Aslan. How naďve he was then, the maw split in what only could be called smile, but many mammals took this as a sign of growling, as some of the sailors, quickly moved as far from the standing Saurid as possible. But against all odds he passed. His paw moved to the amulet that he was given to him, after a first test he had to endure. "Aslan is pleased warrior…" the words seemed to ring out. What was he now a paladin warrior, not many could tell the first time they met him, to think about it nobody knew that particular piece of information, except his teachers and fellow brothers, the brothers of steel. So the main question was still unanswered "Why was he here?" The question seemed to materialise in his mind once again as if waiting for an answer. To think about it the answer was rather simple, Xanasss wanted to get away, from mammals, quests, adventures, tests and just relax a bit, to get all that happened to him in these few years sorted in his simple mind. To simply put it just get away from everyday problems his mission was still undone so returning to his home land in Caemelyn province was out of question, right now, he didn't even know if he ever see familiar faces again, of his fellow lizard warriors.

As if someone was waiting for him to answer the question the small ship seemed to tilt and Xanasss caught a small glance of his destination the Arios island, it was a perfect place to get away, while it was out of the way in the sea, meaning that visitors were quite rare and so wouldn't annoy him in any way. "Arios straight ahead" shouted one of the sailors as he confirmed the Saurid's destination. From a distance the island appeared to be a large green blob, it was very difficult to miss it among all that body of water. There was nothing unique about it just an ordinary island, meeting his requirements nicely. It was just a stroke of luck that this ship appeared just in time as the lizard was making his way along the shore, travelling from the city of Nexus Prime. When he ventured out Xanasss didn't have an exact destination, it was a whim that guided him along the shore. But soon after he crossed a border into another province this boat appeared, intrigued by what lay behind the horizon the Saurid boarded the small vessel. It was the first time that he travelled on the sea and the first experience was a bit frightening, but his determination, took over at that point, and after just few days on board of the vessel were enough to get used to the thing mammals called boat. His second test took place on the boat, but compared to that boat this was just a wooden chip, moving across the large expanse of water. The though about having some rest from every day life, came while he was on board, enjoying the scene as the red disc of one of the Suns moved bellow the horizon. 'At leasssst thissss place issss not touched by sssso called civilissssation' the lizard thought to himself as he really started to enjoy the sounds of water beating against the side of the ship. It seemed the sailors finally accepted him, even though they were still nervous, but it was still just a bit annoying when the captain refused to let him on board. When Xanasss asked for a private audience, the captain's face went white, but in order to appear brave and stoic in front of his crew he had no choice but to agree. After what seemed five minutes, the captain, reappeared as a changed man, finally allowing the Saurid a place among the few people who wished to travel to the island. Many sailors were surprised at the sudden change, and nearly all of them believed that some kind of magic was used, on their captain, after all who knows what these savages are capable of. Xanasss paid no heed to those people and didn't try to convince them otherwise, to the captain he just explained that he, despite his appearance was in service of Aslan, the captain was sceptic but a few extra crowns convinced him otherwise.

Xanasss shook his head and his thoughts fled him, now that the boat moved in closer the Saurid was able to examine the isle the mammals called Arios. Straight away the lizard realised that the whole island was covered by tall trees, resembling a forest inland. If he was right trees were quite rare on the island and if they were there the people who lived on the island should have cut them down ages ago, unless they moved in quite recently. This amount of trees just didn't go well with the mammal's population. It was either a city or a forest, together they just didn't exist. But here it was a small village located among the trees and it was real. 'Either thesssse people are friendssss of nature, or there issss ssssomething elsssse involved' the thought came to the Saurid's mind as his eyes continued to examine the strange place. It seemed even here he was met with some puzzle that just had to be solved. Agonisingly slow the boat finally made it to the dock and as the sailors secured the ship, along with the sails, the few people that were present on the boat started to make their way off the ship and into the middle of the village to be finally lost among the few numbers of the population present. As Xanasss stepped on to the dock his forked tongue detected the now familiar smells of nature. This island was certainly untouched by the civilised word of mammals and he was glad that the ship appeared just when it did, destiny it seemed was unpredictable.

Nobody greeted them when the ship has docked but this was just as good, Xanasss didn't like to be noticed despite his unusual appearance. So standing there on the end of the dock, the Saurid started to methodically check his webbing, the habit that was like a second nature to him. The 50'' katana was securely, wrapped and attached at the back. Two pouches of throwing stars, followed by four throwing knifes, were also securely attached to the left strap. The right strap boasted a 20'' long knife that was also securely wrapped and sheeted. After a quick check of the numerous pockets around the waist, revealed a few bits of food, money and a flask of water. 'All issss there' the thought came to the lizards mind as he tightened up a few of the straps, so that it fitted nicely on the big torso of the Saurid. The Suns made their way towards the horizon, and so in anticipation of a warm bed and a hot food for the night Xanasss quickly made his way further in to the city looking for some place to rest and eat. 'I will have to examine the issssland tomorrow morning, no point wandering at night in the place you not familiar with' and so with that last thought in mind the Saurid made his way across the village looking for a place to rest, ignoring the glances that were directed at him. All these years spend with mammals the lizard was used to being different and he liked it.

OOC: Quite a few bunnies here, better watch out next time. Fortunately, they aren't really that major. So, I'll let you go.

IC: Yes, to a visitor, wandering at night in a strange place can be dangerous. Yet, for a place filled with a dense forest, every villagers in Arios would know that there's nothing else to see or visit. It's supposedly a boring village... during the day time only.

Night

The amazement! The excitement! The energy! The magically-enchanted high-rising fire that lights up the whole village! The dances! The drum beats! Everything is filled with life, power, momentum, restlessness... It's like a celebration of life here... well, maybe exaggerated a bit, nevertheless, this is the night time of Arios.

Villagers are dancing around the high-rising fire. They dance wildly, freely and without worries! Yet, each dancing step carries the gracefulness and beauty to the area surrounding them. Of course, this is normal for the villagers who have been doing this nearly every night, but then, for a new visitor like Xanasss, the dance movements combined with the power of the drum beats and fast paced music, it becomes apparent that he is attracted to the astounding beauty of this culture that hasn't been involved in the politics of the civilized world.

Xanasss can see the kids encircling him with innocent smiles. After a few cheerful giggles, the kids ran off and they kept on their little game of tag.

The smell of the forest is always refreshing and the lizardman can most certainly feel his stamina returning.

OOC: My appologies, now that I have clarified a few things up, there shouldn't be a proble, at least I hope so.

IC: The night seemed to descend quickly on this strange island. Thanks to the monstrous trees, the village was enveloped by darkness long before the three Suns of Telah made their way over the horizon. As the lizard slowly made his way further in to the small village he noticed, that something was definitely wrong. If he was right mammals had to go to sleep, when the dark descended, that what lizards usually did, or most of them anyway and seen other soft skins, in Nexus Prime going to bed, when the dark, descended, that what made this particular encounter so unusual for him. 'Issss it ssssomething the mammalssss did often? After all they were called the pray rassse for nosssing' but some how the Saurid doubted, there was something else to this event, than the mammal thing. Despite his sound reasoning the amount of people was steadily increasing and the lizardman could see that the foundations for the fire have been laid down in place, a great fire at that. Finally fed up with speculating Xanasss tried to stop the first mammal he came across to try and clear few things up. "Excusssss me" was the first sentence that was said to each soft skin he tried to stop but all of them, looked at him with huge round eyes, fled, or couldn't say a word in the best cases. The Saurid was used to that particular reaction and thought that this was due to his appearance, the thought that these people probably reacted in the same way to all foreigners, where they were humans, elves or orcs, hasn't occurred in his slow mind. So his questions still unanswered, the lizard decided to find a place to sit and see how this would unfold.

Not finding a place to sit Xanasss found a place out of the way and stood, his claws crossed on the chest, his form totally unmoving. The only signs that told you that he was a living creature, where his eyes and tongue moving. Eyes: examining every detail around him and tongue: taking in the body heat and the smells, of the passer-by's, as well as his own surroundings. Not long before all of the three Suns made they way, over the horizon the fire was started, as Xanasss has predicted this fire was not going to be some small, thing, used for cooking, but a really big one, that the Saurid guessed, was going to be used to celebrate something, 'but what?' the thought came instantly as the lizardman continued his throughout examination of the strange going to be celebration. As the fire was getting warmer, the music started to play. It was still unsettling for the lizard to hear music, on the celebration day. The Saurids rarely used music, only to drive armies during battles, or give a signal, but it was rarely used during the celebration, if not at all. The lizards way of celebrating, was eating, food, telling stories, showing off the trophies gained in battles, refreshing memories, but not dancing and singing like this mammals did. Of course they danced, but they where ceremonial dances performed, on the special occasions, such as coming of adulthood, mating, death and the birthing of new generations. These soft skins seemed, to dance and sing, just for the sake of it. Never the less Xanasss seemed to like this music, it seemed to be a bit different, from the one the mammals, played on the main land, it was strange but it sounded somehow familiar as if he heard something similar, very long ago, he was not even sure if it were his own memories, but never the less he remembered. As he tried to pinpoint the source of that particular memory he was suddenly interrupted by a bunch of kids who surrounded him laughing and after a few seconds of running around his huge torso, run of to play somewhere else. It seemed the children where the same everywhere, no mater what their race were, he was actually, struck by another memory, little lizards, just a few month from being hatched from an egg, running around, playing, with their mini weapons, full of energy as always. 'Yessss no matter what their rassse issss all children are the sssssame' if the Saurid could smile he would have at that point but he didn't, the lizard, just continued his examination of the little celebration brewing, his stamina slowly returning to an original state…

OOC: Your Bunnies...

"Excusssss me" was the first sentence that was said to each soft skin he tried to stop but all of them, looked at him with huge round eyes, fled, or couldn't say a word in the best cases.

IC: Whether it's a celebration or a non-celebration (aka for the heck of it), every villagers possess the passion and flame to dance. This nightly event is just spectacularly awesome, not only visual, but also audio and sensual.

It's very true that Xanass' stamina is recovering, yet, is this good or bad for him? That means his body will be adapting to the new environment and culture. It's just pure joy and innocence that Xanass is experiencing. There is warmth and comfort in the heart despite the cool breeze that circulates within the village area.

Beautiful... just magnificently beautiful. Although the majority is composed of humans, there are always other races around, including dwarves, elves and so on. Yet, they seemed to be in harmony. They share the joy with everyone and the other.

A paradise of innocence? Perhaps it is! Isolated from the rest of the world, locked inside their own little village and not need to worry about the corrupted and complex society... that's the characteristics of the village - Arios.

The heavy pounding and music continue and constantly at a fast pace. They always provide the boost of energy as if some arcane is working.

Several hours has gone by and it shouldn't be too long before the suns begin to rise. Yet, the fire is still high rise and everyone is still energetic. Just... wow!

The memories...

OOC: My appologies Guru, please point them out in the future, so I know what to avoid. Thanks. I hope that what I wrote below, is not a bunny, concerning the memories of the Saurids.

IC: The Saurid soon begun to notice, the beauty of the dance the mammals performed, even though the lizards had little to say about beauty, when dance was involved, Xanasss couldn't deny, that the celebration was awesome to say the least and it was not a surprise that the Lizardman actually begun to enjoy it. Even though his senses reacted according to the situation, the Saurid didn't want to get used to this strange culture, he decided that this behaviour was totally due to the remoteness of the island, he didn't want to return to the main land, being changed by the strange culture. As the fire cracked, understanding came to the lizard's mind. The nagging he experienced earlier on disappeared, as his memories were triggered, by the awesome celebration, as the long forgotten memories reappeared once again…

...his eyes opened, to see the bonfire burning as the all mammals, dracons and lizards, danced together around the big inferno, the music was strange and the mammals were dressed in some strange garb, but the celebration quite closely resembled the one the mammals performed on the island of Arios. The only thing that was unchanged were the Saurids, they were a bit bigger, than those Xanasss seen before, but they still, wearied the familiar, bronze daggers, and held the spears, still proud of what they are. The Saurid understood this was past, long forgotten by the mammals, but still held by the lizard, even though, they became quite foggy as the eons passed by. It seemed long ago these ceremonies were common, not just on the island, bat all across the land, that now was called the Aelyrian Empire the time when all races lived in harmony, 'the time before mammalsssss sssstarted ssssivilizing the world,' came and angry though as the vision fled…

Xanasss understood because this island was so remote, the civilization didn't have time to reach here yet, but like it did then, the Saurid knew that the same fate was waiting for these peaceful mammals. As the realisation came the lizard's mood deteriorated, as he looked on the mammals, his eyes full of pity, as he waited for the Suns to reappear on the horizon, the calibration, braking off to be continued on another night. It seemed the fate has played a cruel joke on him once again, the celebration that seemed so joyful before, now was a mere puppet show to the Xanasss troubled eyes, it seemed these mammals had to learn their lesson, but not yet, not this night, and maybe not for millions of nights to come, but it will hapen sooner or later, the Saurid hoped it would be later, so that these mammals can enjoy their lifes just a bit longer...

Is it out of his good heartedness of does he have evil intentions? Whatever the conflicted ideas possess within the mind of the lizardman, no one might want to bother as there should be more important things in their own lives than to bother about the difference between the civilized and the uncivilized.

Whatever this unique culture maybe, from Xanasss' point of view, this may be uncivilized, yet, where does one draw the borderline between the uncivilized and the civilized? The only difference it makes would merely be from the viewer's perception and experience.

It's nice to be reminiscing the past. Those joyful moments... indeed, they provide the nutrients to a healthy mind.

Day time is about to arrive as the Xanasss glimpses the beautiful radiance of light begin to pass through the tall and dense forests.

The fire begins to die down and people are leaving. Tired they might be, but their bodies are used to this... after all, it's part of their culture and they have lived in Arios for their whole life.

Xanasss should realize that he hasn't slept for all day and night after the trip. Better get some rest or he might wander around a bit while feeling the fatigue.

A place to rest...

Standing his primitive mind in turmoil, Xanasss had time to glimpse the beautiful radiance if one of the Suns, passing through the tall and dense forest of the strange island. As if waiting for a signal, the fire begun to die down and those who were involved in the night celebration, tired but happy started to make their way, towards the hovels, they called home. The strange memory was still on his mind, but looking at the tired faces the Saurid was suddenly reminded how really tired he was. 'I have to find some plassse to resssst' the thought came unbinding, spending a night and a day, strolling around, begun to take its role on the lizard's body as well as mind. As he remembered the fading memory once again, the though of asking some of these mammals for a place to sleep, somehow didn't appeal to the tired Lizardman, right now he wanted some time alone.

His thoughts turned inwards Xanasss propelled himself across the village, it seemed, that the village was becoming once again, it seemed the mask of boredom, was always worn by the villagers, during the day time, the true face was only revealed during the night, during the time of celebration. Still oblivious to the outside word, the Saurid unconsciously made his way towards the northern part of Arios and by the time he examined his surroundings, he was in front of what seemed to be a fairly unused path, leading further in to the forest. 'Perfect' came the thought to the lizards mind it seemed he found his resting place, but first he had to make sure he was quite far away, from the village, so no one can disturb him. It had never occurred to the Lizardman to question, the origins of the path or where it led, he just wanted to have some time alone, away from mammals and dense forest along with an unused path seemed to be the best place to get away, or was it? He had no knowledge of the black dome; he simply arrived here to get away from his everyday problems, even though it would be just for a little while.

So without a second though Xanasss proceeded along the path, until he was completely surrounded by trees, when he was sure he was far enough from the village, the Saurid turned right and preceded another couple of meters from the path. Unbuckling his webbing, and propping it against a nearby tree, the lizard started to borrow through, the soil, intending to rebuild the exact copy, of the mound the Lizardmen used to live in. Xanasss knew that this task, will not only take the most part of the morning, but also the rest of the strength that was still left in him, but the end result was worth it…

The lizardman saw the black dome, but was it much of an appealing structure? Yes, it's black, and it's covered with weeds and probably different kinds of wild plants. Trees, of course, also surround this magnificent location.

The place is most certainly quiet, after all, the villagers know this place all along and there's not much left of interest for them.

The lizardman can now have a peaceful rest...

OOC: I don't know how else to continue for now. The Black Dome isn't exactly opened to the public yet and this village, sadly speaking, is still in need of a very logical strategy to, while not overpopulating this small village, but also to make it attractive and appealing. You, as a PC, can help out.

Might I also point that you have to change your profile, I mean with just two posts you couldn't have all those possesions and skills. I am not trying to be pain in the a** but rules are rules...

Leaving Arios

OOC: Here it goes Guru, just make shure you stop Xanasss before he get's to the docks, he is quite eager to leave it seemes...

IC: The lizard opened his eyes, it was dusk, his tongue that flickered out for just a moment cough the familiar smell of wooden smoke, it seemed the mammals were rested and were ready for another night of celebrations. Xanasss decided that his night he will spend recovering from his long travels, he didn’t want his organism to get used to a different cycle of days. The Saurid momentarily closed his eyes, search for anything, out of ordinary in his body, finding only a small tiredness in his body he was satisfied, that would be gone in the morning. The pull was still there nudging as usual, but nothing out ordinary, what was the nature of the pull he didn’t know, not yet. It seemed the birds went quite as the night gave way to the creatures that dwelled at night, his tongue catching only the small wisps of carrion creatures. They would not disturb him; his smell was strong enough around here to drive even most persistent creatures away. His smell was a smell of a predator like them. They would find an easier quarry to catch closing his, Lizardman went in to a light slumber waiting for the morning to come…

The sun hasn’t come up yet but the Lizard was already up, sitting on a log gazing at the glimpses of the sky that could be seen through the trees. The day promised to be great, promising a lot of sunshine to come. Munching one some of the cold rations, the lizard’s gaze moved towards the black dome, which was still surrounded in the morning mist. ‘I haven’t heard anybody travelling there’ the thought came quickly, but his mind abandoned the thought of visiting the strange structure. Some how he had a feeling that mammals stopped visiting that place for a reason. The pull became stronger it seemed, where only a day ago he wanted to relax every from the ‘civilisation’ now Xanasss wanted to go home, to his mould, that’s why he left the brotherhood. ‘I just hope the strange structure the mammals named the boat are still here.’ The Saurid finished the last of his rations, stood up and buckled on his webbing, it seemed the longer he wore the strange thing he designed himself, the more used he became to the weight of all the weapons, hanging from it. Buckling the straps in front, Xanasss make sure he left nothing behind, and getting rid of his tracks the Lizardman made his way back towards the settlement, intending to board the floating structure as soon as possible.

Entering the village, the Saurid’s tongue picked up the smell of smoke and food, the smell of the celebration that has broke up an hour ago, it seemed the mammals never got tired, dancing at night and sleeping at day. Xanasss wondered how these soft skins managed to work during the day as he heard the noise of the tree falling. It was another puzzle that would be unanswered, as the lizard quickened his pace eager to get to the docks…

OOC: I'll make this short.

IC: So there is a ship. Fortunately... He just realized that he stayed at Arios for nearly 2 days. However, he should've recalled that the ships that access between Arios and mainland is more like on a random basis.

Fortunately, the ship was there...

What is his plan now? Only Xanasss knows. However, he realizes the rich forestry and fishery resources on this island. It can be an extremely profitable place if... if he can find some connections.

OOC: Guru Xanasss will not do it for money he doesn’t have the mind to think of building the bridge and have profits from selling the wood and fish. If he needs money he will fight to get them, the Saurids make poor businessmen, even though the tribes have some trade between them. I am sorry for being pain in the a** but I don’t see Xanasss as a prospering businessman. The way you could do it is some villager asking Xanasss to find rich people, to build a bridge. Xanasss will do that. What I had in mind is sending rich PC to the island, to negotiate the benefits of investing the money, Xanasss serving only as a messenger…

IC: Soon the ship came in sight, it still amaze Xanasss to see such a heavy structure floating on the water, to come and think of it, it still amazed the Saurid to see so much water, water that was full of salt. The lizard was glad that the ship was still here, he didn’t want to spent any more time on this unique island, it brought back old memories, memories of the young world, ‘world free of civilissssation’ the thought came with the same ferocity as before, as his measured strides took him across the village, his target getting gradually closer…

He has no visible sex organs, and his underside is a lighter shade than the rest of his body, which is tiger-striped and green and brown in colour, enabling him to blend in such areas as forests, jungles and grasslands, with ease.

Perhaps Xanasss would choose to leave Arios as it is, a place so far from from the corrupted civilization. Anyway, Xanasss leaves the forest-filled island and the innocence of the living. He returns back to where he came from - the Mainland.

Leaving the island

Xanasss stood on the deck, his paws resting on the side boards as his eyes surveyed the island which was gradually recessing behind a horizon. The black dome reflected the rays of the Sun's of Telah as the small forms the Saurid identified as mammals, became small dots. The day promised to be sunny as no clouds marred the sky overhead, the sea was quite as the boat slowly rocketed, going up and down on the waves that caressed the hull of the wooden structure. The pull became stronger as the boat came closer to the main land, the Lizardman decided that he had no choice but to leave the island, there was an unbearable longing to get home. Have he relaxed on the island? Maybe but from now on his look on life wouldn't be the same, and Xanasss regretted it.

The island soon disappeared behind the horizon as once again the boat was alone in the wide expanse of nothing but water. The sight disturbed the lizard as he gazed into the spot where the island was a moment ago. Moving to the opposite side, the Lizardman, surveyed his destination the main land, 'yessss the life wouldn't be the ssssame' the lizard straightened his uniform and tightened a few straps on his webbing as the boat docked. Nodding to the captain, the Saurid disembarked and with the last look at the sea, broke in to a mile eating run, the city of Arkdun as his target…
