OOC - Hi all, first post back since 2005 glad to be back...

IC - Leynore approached the guard with his hand clutching his visa still inside his pocket. As he got closer he took the visa out and held it up in front of the guard, "Serale" he said nonplussed. Leynore had other things on his mind such as 'where is Nemic?' 'Where is my love?' knowing however that Nemic had vanished and that he probably would never see her again. This was affecting Leynores mind and he would never be the same again

Astalder walked closely by Leynores side, always looking for danger.
Beleger and Voronwer were slightly further back, falling behind whilst playfighting, then realising that Leynore had moved further away, ran to his side.

OOC - Just noticed that the MOD's have gone so please ignore, can't remember how to delete post

J'lyara Austerfield Jones is a benevolent Adventurer
Early winter, Kalendryas, Just as the Sherian War is Ending, Era XV PF


It had been a taxing trip from Diana. Not only because she'd had to be separated from her husband for the first time since regaining her memory, but because she'd had a first hand look at the devastation of war. Her time in the Sherian wastelands had been emotional and eventful and she wasn't likely to forget any of what had happened for some time to come.

Her life had changed, drastically changed. She was no longer the woman she'd once been. The only constants that she could cling to was her love for Palacrisis and for her family. Her hair was still a fiery mass but the conflicted woman who had last passed through the gates of Taralon was no more. In her place was a woman at peace with her purpose in life, a woman determined to do right by her blessed, unborn child.

She may would have been recognizable to the guards had they been around during the time she was living in Taralon, for she'd been Assistant to Prefect Restrivi for a time, she was married in a lavish ceremony to the then Thane of Taralon, Palacrisis, and it was discovered that she was the granddaughter of the highly respected Taralonian Baroness, Bela L. Austerfield, and daughter of the infamous formerly missing Austerfield daughter, Lady Marae Austerfield.

As it was, she wasn't admitted entrance right away but had to stop for her Visa to be scrutinized and questions asked of a woman and her party traveling through the countryside at a dangerous time such as this. She explained that she had pressing business and personal affairs to attend to within the city. She explained that she was returning home.

Eraisuithon Gil'dae is a benevolent Adventurer
Kalendryas 10

The blond haired agent of the Sylrosian Lord Protector of Imperia should of very well been irritated. He had traveled for well over thirty brightenings across the wide expanses of the empire, through rain, sleet, hail and snow, and had come to the Confederation of Sherian and the gates of Taralon in particular knowing that there was war and rumors of war abound. He knew that there were tens of thousands of grotesque beasts just waiting to launch an assault on humanity, and the danger of traveling alone through the countryside was beyond any he had experiences. The dark alleys of Imperia did not measure up to all of this.

But he was not irritated, or scared, or even worried. He was young, and adventurous, and thoroughly consumed with excitement at the very notion of what he was doing! Trekking across the empire to achieve some great goal, furthering the will of his master in far off lands! So much more exciting than standing to the side of a rising politician.. although he did not altogether mind the pallid elf to whom he swore allegiance. Indeed! For now he was serving him, like none other could do.

He rode on horseback on the very horse of his master, a swift and beautiful stallion whom had been gifted the name Mor'nar. To the gate guards he issued a simple reply with the presentation of his visa. Alwyn Bristow it truthfully read. Human, born in Imperia. Twenty three eras. "My master sends me to these lands on business.. He wishes not to abandon the Confederation in it's darkest candlemarks!"

The gnome stood about 9 and a 1/2 inches tall, his clothes were faded though they once had been fine, his hair was greying, and the scar over his right eye (rat bite) had subsided, barely visible amidst the wrinkles and worry lines. As he walked his gait was still strong and indicated that he had once been athletic and agile. He smiled a knowing smile and his eyes shone with a bright mischief

Looking down at his old visa - stamped by Lord Rothchild so very long ago - the gnome could feel tears welling up in his eyes as he remembered all that had transpired since he first set out from the wilderness outside Taralon. That was ancient history to most and everything had changed since then, Allysa was no more and even Lord Rothchild had passed. He had been there when Valarian had been raised by the Aethergem and yet even he had gone on. He'd been away exploring unknown lands and then had come home to settle only to have this blasted war interferring with his peace.
He'd helped the gnoba of his sisters grandchildren relocate to a safer place with a supply of water and feed and then had decided to leave them and seek answers here in Taralon.

Gye'ron was barely able to stop his beige horse in time. The officer was in a hurry and wasn't willing to spend much time talking. He threw his visa and military ID down toward the guard that was blocking his way.

"Daekin Gye'ron Val Oriden, I need to report to Imperatis Avornmagor immediately." His horse was wheezing and didn't look like it had much more in it.

The guard looked at the visa and MID for a second before tossing them back and began to say something about Gye'ron's manners, but the officer had already kicked his heels into his exhausted horse and shouted out, "Ayah!" and was gone before the guard could finish.

Alana Hybrid is unknown and forgotten
TS: First Cycle of Ioannes, Season of Summer, Era XV (pf)

Alana let out a slow and heavy sigh as she approached the north gate. Wearing a red summer cloak she shifted her arms carefully so as not to drop the bundle in which she held. Moving forward she stopped before the guard and listened to his words. Nodding and smiling softly she careful freed up one arm and reached into a side pocket pulling out her visa. Smiling to the guard she slipped the visa back into her side pocket, repositioned her arms to support the bundle and moved onward into the city.

TS: First Cycle of Imperos

The large vagaran stood a head taller than most of the others in front of the gates waiting to be admitted, and in his mind he sized each of them depending on thier looks and some shown character.

He underestimated none of them though, as only a fool gave a true accounting of someone he had never met in battle before, and most were dead after.Thus far, he had been the victor in nearly all his encounters, and those he had not won he had escaped from. Barely alive usually, but still escaped.

As he reached the guards he handed them his visa, and since nothing should have been amiss, he should also have been admitted without trouble.

A new life, a new start, and titus antonius was off to find it. He threw the cowel of his cloak over his head, and rode out of the city. the embattled province had been the place of his death and rebirth, and now, now, he feared he would not see it nor his inhabitants, and friends again for some time.

he briefly showed his visa to the guard at the gate, and rode off into the distance. full gallop, intent on his destination.

The fifth brightening of the Month of Junctior, in the Season of Autumn, Era I of the Celestine Mandate, Era XV Post Fractum

A much darker skinned man rode back into Taralon, angry, and hurried, heading back into the city he had left.

He flashed a military visa at the guard,

it would Identify him as Cencoris Teig O'Maolain. And if that guard knew what was good for him he would allow him to pass quickly.

He rode for darkblade fortress at a full gallop.

Straylor arrived neither by land nor sea.

In Hawk Form there was little that escaped his piercing amber eyes. He shrieked once, something he couldn't avoid out of the exhilaration of being in such a magnificent form. It was a sound of rejoicing and a signal to other birds of prey -- beware. In an instant, the seemingly average bird could transform into anything from a griffin to a primus wolf, is Straylor was feeling extravagantly fancy.

Without bothering to pause at the gates, Straylor continued to observe the fallen capital beneath him. The war had taken much from its populace and he could almost smell the stench of defeat lingering in the air. For the rest of the Kingdom, war was a history. But for Sheria, it was the opening chapter of her most recent story. If hawks could sigh, Straylor would have done so. Instead, he emitted a low, sad screech.

Arrival

Despite the warm, bright sun of midday Sora approaches the West gate with caution, watching the guards with a hard look, doing her best to ward off troublemakers. She notes the strength of the gate and the fortifications, approving her selection for a safe city to make a living in. After a few moments pause she continues towards the guards by the gate and, after a human passes through, has her visa checked and enters the bustling city. She glances around, and then begins wandering around the city as she tries to commit landmarks and streets in her mind.

Timestamp: Early Evening 40th Brightening of Junctior, in the Season of Autumn, Era I of the Celestine Mandate, Era XV Post Fractum.

Kavene had heard of many things that were happening in the region. The one that caught his eye the most was the fact that its leader, Redbeard or something or another had a lot of problems on his plate, and was trying to fix one of them by providing vasts amount of capital to the people in the city who were trying to increase the economy, the Merchants and craftmen. He also heard that Redbeard was raising an army.

Kavene needed money, and could help was raising an army! It was perfect! Little did he know, that the consequences would be more troublesome than he could possibly imagine, that he could potentially be hunted down like a dog.

The katta continued to walk to the gates never the less, in ignorant bliss, thinking of only building another golem workshop, and building more golems! He walked up to the guard with a grin on his face, his golems in tow behind him.

"Hello!" explained the heavily armed, yet friendly katta. "Im here on business, I heard there was work to do, and I have things that will make that work easier!"

He motioned to his golems then waited to be let through.

Early brightening, 45th of Junctior, Autumn, Era XV

The western gates of Taralon loomed above them and Niven suddenly felt nervous. She had no reason to believe that the wagon party wouldn't be let into the city. But they weren't here for the reason that they were going to tell the guards. Niven glanced at the boy beside her and gave him a smile showing confidence she didn't have. She drove the wagon right up to the gate and hen they were in earshot of the guard, she leaned over to Jirael and said, "Take out your visa, Sweetheart." Niven looked down at the guard and took out her own visa. Her dog, Juno poked his head out of the back of the wagon to see what was going on and barked once to alert all of his presence.

"Serale!" she said. "My ward and I are looking to settle here," Niven told the guard as she handed him hers and Jirael's visa's, explaining just in that sentance why the names on the visas wouldn't match. She sat back and waited for the guard's response.

Idoc arrived along with his employee Dante Asunder and his faithful companion Rupert, after the ship arrived outside of the city Idoc motioned Rupert to follow him.

Idoc was here on serious business he had his claymore sword on his back along with his dagger on the side of his waistband. Idoc looked down at Rupert and grinned, "We're here fella." he said placing his hand on the top of Rupert's head.


Idoc and Rupert waited for his employer Dante to step off the boat they had arrived through the docks, Idoc remained silent and followed Dante out of the docks and into the city.
