Jin smiles up at Laenid as she takes her hand.

After the girls leave she closes the door, and has Celia, Sadhana and Ylrhea follow her back to the kitchen while Celine goes back to playing with Honey in the living room. Getting back to the kitchen she sighs tiredly while taking the dishes to the sink. She rinses them out before sitting down at the table with Celia, Sadhana and Ylrhea. Folding her hands in front of her she looks up at them, "Before I get into what we found out in Lysse...I needed to ask you something. Did...did you guys know that there was a copy of me out there?"

In case you were wondering if you knew since it was so long ago, you do. For the reference post, you can search for "evil exploding box of rainbows" it's on that page where you were at the tower and asking about things coming out of the shards.

"I think that's it," Toni says before standing up. "Thanks for the info."

She looks at Laenid, Hitome and Jin. "Ready to go?"

"Anytime." Sadhana replies with a smile. "It's good to see you like this," she says to Toni. "Looks like you're finding your element again."


"I suppose, but it's still quite different than my old life," Toni remarks as she and the group walk out the door.

"We may have heard something about that. Why?"


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

She nods, "Well....I know that things have been crazy these past few days, so I'll try not to be upset about not being warned about it. It was just....kind of a shock when she showed up while I was in Lysse with the girls. She just landed in front of me, saying how she heard I had escaped and wanted to see it with her own eyes...I just...I didn't know what to think, and before I had time to process anything...as usual, she was telling me that....that my parents were dead and giving me a letter my father wrote to me on his death bed, and that's when I pretty much lost it and started calling her everything except an Aasimar, accused her of stealing my life and that if she ever showed her face again I'd kill her." She pauses to wipe her eyes and unclench her fists that she had balled up on the table without realizing it.

She kind of shrugs as her shoulders slump, "So, then she told me how she has five hundred years of battle experience on me and I don't scare her, how she lost everyone she ever loved aznd her son hates her for trying to defend their home from someone trying to take it from them, and how I was a reminder of everything that she lost. Plus....she looked almost exactly like me except older, with black wings, and eyes that were red and glittered like rubies....though there was no spark in them anymore, and as Gwen pointed out after she left, that she seemed really sad. That's part of what I needed to tell you about, along with asking you to deliver a letter I wrote to her after I had time to read the letter from my father, and tell you what Ard told us when we saw him in Lysse." She says before taking a break to catch her breath.

She then looks over at Celia, "I'm sorry I didn't say anything to you sooner. I'm not trying to ignore you, I just have a lot going on in my head right now and I'm trying to remember everything I need to tell you guys before you leave." She says, sounding a little shaky and more tired than she has in a long time.

"That's a lot to process." Sadhana says, resting a hand on Arista's shoulder and squeezing gently. "I can only imagine what it must be to meet the person who lived the life you were supposed to. But it sounds like she had more than her fair share of suffering as well. Do you know where we're likely to find her?"


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

She nods, "She told me not to step foot in Ilneas, so I can only assume that's where she lives. I think it's in the direction you were already headed, but it's somewhere that you have to go anyways."

Arista then explains everything that Ard had told her and Fae, and how one of the pieces they needed to defeat the dreaded old one was suspected to be in Ilneas.

She then takes the letter out from her father and hands it to Sadhana, "That's the letter my father wrote to me right before he died. Apparently they were taken ill, and the other Arista....I guess she would be like my older sister, she stayed and took care of them after Philla just left them there to do whatever the hells it is she does. She didn't tell them who she really was until they were about to die." She shakes her head, "Anyways, since you need to go that way...would you mind taking this letter to her for me? I believe you have like forty three or forty four days left to figure things out before those stars align and something possibly bad happens." She pauses to take out the letter she wrote and sealed with her family crest and hands it to Sadhana after she has a chance to read the letter her father wrote, "I know this is a lot to dump on you all at once, and I'm sorry we don't have more time to go over everything...but I know you need to get going."

I hope that's okay, there was just too much information to write it all out. If you go back to where Cyna, Sienna, Tesia. Rhy, Arista, and them wentg to Lysse for the girls flowers, you'll see what Ard told them. That's what Arista just went over with you. I just want to make sure we don't forget about anything. She'd also tell you about that guys wife that went to the Rimespire mountains like 10 years ago and never came back.


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

I felt bad about not giving you the actual information, so here is the letter that her father wrote to her so you don't have to go searching for that.

If this should ever find its way into your hands, Arista,

I was never a very good writer, but your mother's vision has begun to go. I barely have the strength to make the pen meet the paper. We are not long for this world and it is only now that we are learning the truth. Firstly, your mother apologizes for how she treated you growing up and I

I failed you and Theon. There is nothing else I can say but that. I am truly sorry for not protecting you both.

This other Arista Your sister, not your real one, but this one that came to us, loved us. She took care of us after Philla left. Please don't be mad at her should you meet her. The kindness she showed us was more than anyone could expect from a stranger. She gave up a chance to leave with Philla and stayed even though the sickness here became worse. I hope that she found happiness. We were never alone. Please take comfort in that.

Your mother and I love you, Arista. I hope that whatever happened to you that you are happy. I hope that Theon is happy too. My heart cannot bear to believe that you are both truly gone.

The letter ends without a signature, simply a line of ink trailing downward.

Okay, so that letter didn't copy and paste the way that Henry wrote it, so if you want to see it in it's entirety, then go back and look at page 1222, but that's up to you.

Okay, this is all the information we got from Ard, so you don't have to look for that either.

Once in the other room, Ard pulls out a weathered notebook. "I'll get right to the point. I know that Cthulhu's time draws near. There exists a stone tablet on Zahvroma with the power to banish Cthulhu. It is called the Elder Sign. There are only a handful in existence, but one happens to be in the Grey Plains...where the gates to R'lyeh lie in wait. While you could combat Cthulhu, you would most likely lose your lives. The Elder Sign is perhaps your best chance at success. However, you would also need to know the mantras to activate it. For that, you would need to search out the lost paladins of Iomedae. Rumor has it they inhabit a haunted town..."

Ard looks around the room and scribbles a name on a piece of paper, handing it to Arista. "I daren't say the name...there are those who would seek to ensure Cthulhu's arrival and triumph. The death cults grow bolder each day and the last king of Lakarra supports them. While Lysse remains under protection...things happen not far from our walls."

The paper reads "Ilneas".

Ard shakes his head. "I can't offer more than rumors. In the last age, an expedition headed by the Church of Iomedae came to Zahvroma and managed to get pretty far inland. What happened to them is a mystery, though people have claimed to see their spirits wandering the countryside. The town is about twenty miles from Chalandra's domain to the northwest. Though the necromancer, Tichran, lays claim to the area, the dark elves stick to the underground. The surface..."

Ard shrugs. "Who knows what you'll find there? As for the Grey Plains, that is where the body of Malfeliax fell after he devoured the shard of the sky. It is a barren area where the bones of devil, demon, daemon and humanoids alike make up the ground. No one dares to go there, perhaps that is why I believe the Elder Sign is still there."


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

Ard shrugs. "The Dark Trail...Some believe when those stars line up, that our world becomes connected to others. I don't know if that's true or not, but, with Great Old Ones and mysterious shards falling from the sky, I guess anything's possible. Those stars should line up in about forty-seven days, I think."

This was what Ard told Tesia that she later told to Arista....and I think everyone else when they came over at some point or another, anyways...Arista would tell all of this to Sadhana plus the bit about Madgar the leather worker in Siphas who's wife, Floria, went missing five years ago, not ten when she left for the Rimespear mountains on "business" and never came back. Floria's daughters name is Polly and Madgar said that he met her while saving her from some bandits that wanted to do "unsavory' things to her. She has a scar on the back if she doesn't believe that he sent you because only she and him know about it.

I really think that's about it as far as what she would need to tell you, and there are forty five days left to figure out things and stop Cthulhu or whatever.

I hope that's all okay. I know it's a lot so I'm really sorry, but I didn't want you to have to go searching for the information.

"That's a lot to take in," Ylrhea says. "You could have offered us coffee or tea first."


"Do you want to go to Halfpocket's, Jin?" Toni asks. "Or would you like me to talk to Rajni first?"


Female Kitsune Unchained Summoner/ 11 Fort +6, Ref +6, Will +10

She kind of shrugs, "Whichever is easiest. We can go to whichever place is closest and go from there. Is that okay?"


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

She nods and looks down, "Yeah....I know, and I'm sorry. Did you want something hot to drink? I have cookies...." She says, feeling bad about dumping everything on them at once like that.


Female Gnome Rogue 13; Mythic Tier 3rd (Trickster) HP: 115/115; AC: 26, FF: 19, T: 17; Fort: +8, Ref: +16, Will +7 (+4 vs fear); Perception: +19; Init: +8

"Maybe some tea," Ylrhea says. "I'm still full from breakfast, though."


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

Getting up from the table she fills up her tea kettle and puts it back on the stove to heat up again. Looking back over at the table she asks Sadhana and Celia, "Did either of you want something hot to drink?"


Toni nods. "That's fine. I think we're closer to Halfpocket's than home."


Female Kitsune Unchained Summoner/ 11 Fort +6, Ref +6, Will +10

She nods as she follows behind Toni while holding Laenid's hand, "Okay."


Human Summoner (Unchained) 10; HP: 81/81; AC: 14, T: 10; FF: 14; Fort: +4, Ref: +3, Will: +9 (+2 vs Emotion spells and effects); Init: +0; Perception: +9

Laenid smiles and squeezes Jin's hand.

Jin smiles up at Laenid and squeezes her hand back.

"So....just for a chance to gain access to the information on where the tablet of the Elder Sign might be, we need to head to a place that seems like a nexus of the domains of three of the remaining necromancers, on the way to face a fourth." Sadhana lets out a breath, the strain of trying to conceptualize the scope of what lay ahead clear in her voice. "And somewhere along the line of getting to Wayvaire and freeing the Nymphs, we'll most likely come up against Theon as well, and have to defeat, and hopefully redeem him.

Taking a deep breath she looks back at Arista with a grin," anything else, maybe an easy one like reigniting the sun." She says with a rye chuckle, clearly using humor to cope with the nearly unimaginable tasks ahead. "Oh, uhm yeah....tea would be good."


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

Arista remains quiet as she waits to see if Celia wanted anything.


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

As she waits to hear if Celia wanted anything to drink, she sets some spoons out on the table along with some sugar, honey, cream, and lemon, so they could pick what they wanted in their tea. Sighing as she waits for the water to heat up she looks at her friends with tired eyes. The stress apparent in her voice she says, "I know it's a lot, and I'm sorry I can't be there with you....but there is so much going on here that needs to be taken care of. The Lords of Covington being one of those things....hopefully they'll be intercepted before they actually make it here, but I'm not above kicking some snobby noble ass. Anyways, all I can tell you is to be careful while you're out there. If anyone comes back with more than a scratch, I'm never staying home again." She concludes with a slight pout to her voice.

She wanders back over to the stove to wait on the water so they couldn't see the pained expression on her face.

"It's not like you're staying here by yourself," Ylrhea points out. "If anyone shows up here to start some trouble, I'll be kicking some ass right along with you."


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

Ylrhea's comment makes her smile as she snickers slightly, "Yeah, I know you would. I'm sorry....I don't mean...I don't even know what I'm thinking right now. I've just been feeling so tired." She says while pouring the hot water in the mugs, "Celia, did you want anything?"

"Sorry, yes. Some tea please." The cleric replies.

"Don't worry, we'll have some additional support out there. Mirrin and Magestria are coming with us. Besides, it's good to know that home will be in good hands while we're away." Sādhanā says with a smile, looking from Arista to Ylrhea.


Female Gnome Rogue 13; Mythic Tier 3rd (Trickster) HP: 115/115; AC: 26, FF: 19, T: 17; Fort: +8, Ref: +16, Will +7 (+4 vs fear); Perception: +19; Init: +8

Ylrhea sips her tea and nods.

After bringing over the other cups of tea for Sadhana and Celia she sits down at the table. After Sadhana is done reading the letter that her father wrote her she takes it back and sticks it back in her pocket. Making sure Sadhana has the letter for her sister she says, "I don't know if you'll actually see her again, but if you do...just make sure she gets that letter okay? So....I was wondering, do you think you're going to need to take Theon's sword with you? Since his spirit seems trapped in the sword I didn't know if you would need it with you or not. Sarenrae already told me to have faith and that I would see my brother again soon, so I'm just kinda trusting in that at this point. Aside from Marie, her family, and Andres....he's all I have left...if there's anything left of him." She finishes a little softly, regretting that her last words spoken to her mother had been in anger.

After washing her own hands, Rajni tries to find her mama to see if she needs help with lunch or if it was already done.


Female Gnome Rogue 13; Mythic Tier 3rd (Trickster) HP: 115/115; AC: 26, FF: 19, T: 17; Fort: +8, Ref: +16, Will +7 (+4 vs fear); Perception: +19; Init: +8

"I'm sure Sadhana and the others will find him," Ylrhea says.


"Afternoon," Halfpocket says as the Summoners and the Midwife walk into his store. "What can I help you find today?"


"You're back just in time, Rajni," Asha says as her daughter walks into the kitchen. "Lunch is ready. Is Juhi going to eat too?"


"Yes, mama. I'm here," Juhi says, coming into the kitchen behind Rajni.


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

Arista nods, "I know....it'll all work out somehow, and I'm not trying to sound like the rest of you aren't family to me...because you are. It's just...no matter how much the rest of you mean to me, or thed others in this town that mean so much to me...it's just not the same. My parents are dead, and I can't take back all the awful things I said to my mother before I left the last time. The letter helped a little....but it also made me feel extremely guilty. Theon said it wasn't my fault when I talked to him....but I can't help how I feel...but I can't do anything about that now.... I don't know....I'll just shut up now." She says, stopping herself before she becomes more emotional.

"We're going on a camping trip and need some supplies. I'll need a large tent, ten days of trail rations, a few extra pillows, a couple of heavy winter blankets, an extra bed roll, a couple of mess kits so we have stuff to eat with, and then...do you have something we can get to cook with over an open fire?" She asks while looking around curiously. She hoped she wasn't forgetting anything.


Female Fetchling Ranger 6 HP: 51/51; AC: 20, T: 16, FF: 15; Init: +7; Fort: +7, Ref: +10, Will: +1

Rajni sniffs the air, "Mmm...thank you mama, it smells really delicious. I think we worked up a good appetite."


"Were you wanting a pot or a pan? Or both?" Halfpocket asks in return.


Female Kitsune Unchained Summoner/ 11 Fort +6, Ref +6, Will +10

She thinks for a moment, "Ummmm...both?"


Asha smiles. "It's just chicken curry, rice and some bread."


"My favorite," Juhi says, sitting at the table.


Female Gnome Rogue 13; Mythic Tier 3rd (Trickster) HP: 115/115; AC: 26, FF: 19, T: 17; Fort: +8, Ref: +16, Will +7 (+4 vs fear); Perception: +19; Init: +8

Ylrhea smiles at Arista. "I know it's hard to have faith, but we've made it this far."

She then turns to Sadhana. "You better get going, love."


Female Aasimar Warpriest 12; Mythic tier 3rd (Marshal); HP: 102/102; AC: 25(28), FF: 19, T: 14; Init: +5, Fort: +12, Ref: +7, Will: +15; Perception: +9

She just nods.


Female Fetchling Ranger 6 HP: 51/51; AC: 20, T: 16, FF: 15; Init: +7; Fort: +7, Ref: +10, Will: +1

Rajni sits down at the table with her little sister and smiles, "It doesn't matter what you make mama, it always turns out wonderful."


Halfpocket gathers Jin's order. "Let's see here...that'll be forty gold, all in all."

Derika waits until everyone is finished eating and the big burly looking warrior guy comes back from getting their rooms. Looking over at Barclay she says, "If you got other stuff to do Sir Barclay, we can show them around."
