[Countryside] Time to competently engineer premium lutran capital [Ellie]

Winter, Era XXVI

There was a lutran lotholt that had made its dwelling in what could generally be considered the territory of Moonstone - along the River Laroo, at any rate, so perhaps it was a split between Moonstone and Centripax. Either way, Sliucha had encountered them a few times, and had found herself recently wondering how they had been doing. The village had bounced back from a meteor strike that had wound up doing a fair amount of damage, and had a successful holiday feast that Sliucha had helped with.

Even if they weren't strictly her responsibility, and she wasn't expecting anything out of them in terms of providing for the province, Sliucha couldn't help but want to know if they were doing all right.

So! She found a nice patch of time that she could dedicate to this, rearranging her schedule as needed. Her people knew where to find her, if there was really any sort of emergency, she could always return to Ziel Aerca. She brought along with her an entourage of half a dozen dorin bodyguard and, with them mounted on horses and herself riding a wagon carriage, they'd make their way towards the lotholt.

Chief Bigtail had a problem. Well, he had a lot of problems, actually. He reasoned that it was because he was chief of the biggest lotholt in the empire(he really did need to finish The Great Counting), and that being such an important lutran meant that he had to deal with problems that ordinary lutrans didn't have to deal with. Like big lightning rocks falling out of the sky and crushing his hut. Or being invaded(yes, invaded!) by the insufferable Wetpaw Lotholt during primehiems, and all while there was no fish.

That, however, had been four years ago, as best he could reckon, and in the time since then, he had only had to deal with regular problems. Easy problems. Now, though, he had a real problem.

As Sliucha and her entourage of well-armed dorin arrived, there was a stir. Lutran pups, squealed and ran to and fro, caught between the fear of the dorin and their insatiable curiosity. The adults cried out in alarm, gathering their fishing spears and huddling around their huts, jabbing the points in the direction of Sliucha's band. "Go away! Go away nasty doggies! Shoo!"

Chief Bigtail heard the commotion and sighed. Rolling himself up from the floor of his hut(he'd grown a little pudgy in the last few years...well, pudgier) and stepped outside to survey the scene. Oh, great. Dorins.

He thought about just sinking back into his cabin and letting his people deal with the intruders, but, then he felt something jabbing him in the ribs and his wife's voice screeching in his ear. "Go on! Do something! You're the chief!"

"Fine fine fine! Stop....stop poking me! I'm going!" Stepping forward, he raised his hands to halt the procession and, with his best, most authorative voice(it barely shook at all! uh huh), greeted the dorins. "Stop! Go away! We don't need no more trouble! Go on! Shoo!"

Oh.

Sliucha remembered them being way more friendly last time. Maybe something had happened? She felt like something had happened. Surely the lutran would remember her? It wasn't as if she'd really changed all that much. Just... two new tails. And also her tits were massive now. And she looked much prettier. And this time she had all these dorin bodyguards.

Okay, actually, the more she thought about it, the more she could understand.

"Chief Bigtail?" Sliucha called out, hoping that things wouldn't descend into violence. She didn't really like hurting people very much to begin with - a bunch of cute lutran, even less so. Even if they brandished spears and all. Just look at how pudgy the chief had gotten!

"It's me, the governor of Moonstone. From before? I helped with the Primeheims festival?" Maybe that'd help jog the memory? "Is everything all right?"

A general murmur ran through the village as Sliucha called out to the chief. Some thought the strange elf looked familiar, but, others said it couldn't be her. But, at the moment, it seemed that their concern wasn't on the governor, but, on the scary dorin accompanying her.

Chief Bigtail looked hard at Sliucha...then took a few steps closer and looked even harder. Another step brought him uncomfortably close to her dorin guard, and a hush fell across the lutrans as they watched their chief(he was soooo brave!).

Finally, he stood straighter, put his hands up in front of his chest as if he were holding two very large melons and blurted "Wowza! Governor lady got biiiiiiiiiiig....." At that precise moment, an elbow to his side cut him off as his wifey scowled at him.

Chief Bigtail rubbed his aching ribs as the rest of the village erupted in laughter, the tension seemingly broken as they lowered spears and began swarming forward. Sliucha's ears were bombarded with a hundred high pitched voices.

"Are you going to save us?" "Will you make big sparkies again?" "Puffy is sick again!" In moments, it all blended together in one very annoying cacophony.

Chief Bigtail, for his part, stood there with a giant smile on his face. Things were looking up! Just look at all those big, mean and scary dorin the governor brought with her. His problems would soon be no more! Well, some of his problems.

Pushing his way through the crowd, he raised his hands and shouted to get the villagers attention. When that didn't work, he stuck a thumb and finger in his mouth and let loose with an ear-splitting whistle that left nearly everyone's ears ringing.

"Governor elf lady! Are you hear to help us?"

"Oh, so you do recognize me!" Sliucha exclaimed happily, bouncing around in what was perhaps a bit of an exaggerated fashion as the "biiiiiiiiiiiiig" features wobbled along with her. She really was rather pleased, though, that it wouldn't wind up any more complicated than that. There was a certain level of relation that had been built from her helping them prior, and that would hopefully help smooth things along, you know? Very different from trying to approach them as a stranger.

Either way, it did seem like there were quite a few things that she could take a look at. Which was good and bad. Good because she was here to help! Bad because, well, obviously it was best if things were just good for the lotholt and Sliucha didn't have to do anything. But the important thing was that she was here now, and she was here to help as best as she could.

"Of course!" Sliucha thumped her chest with a fist. "Chief Bigtail and all of you are good friends, after all. And friends help out friends all the time, it's just the right thing to do!" She wanted to establish that she wasn't trying to usurp the chief's authority or anything, hopefully all the lutran could understand that. It wasn't the governor swooping in to solve all their problems, it was their pal Sliucha coming to help them. It was a subtle difference, maybe, but an important one to make, she felt.

"Now, what can I do to assist?" Besides see to Puffy, it seemed.
