Mistaken Destinations! (zenke, Orgoth)

Post by Jun on Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:54 am

Rex sat on the back of a wagon, legs dangling off the edge. He was wearing the black with silver trim version of his nobility clothes, but it was looser and easier to move in than his white with gold trim version, and he had his sword on his back. His scythe had gotten damaged, and was in his bag, fully extended with the top section and bottom section actually separated. Though not completely, the chain keeping them connected was all messed up...it would take a hell of a blacksmith to fix it. He got roped into helping out a small, four wagon caravan, escorting it through the free lands. He didn't ask where they were going, just that they needed help getting there. And so he offered.

"There it is. That's where we're heading, boyo." Rex travelled to the front through the wagon's narrow path inside and peaked out the front. To see a huge, walled city that was fortified. There was no way a direct assault would move this beast of a city. "That's...impressive. What is it?" The young Asentari couldn't hide his sense of awe of the place. The man chuckled. "This is Mith Silvanus, capital of the Kingdom of Mondolin!" It took a few minutes for what the guy had said to register in Rex's mind. And a loud "EEEEEHHHHHHHH!!!" could be heard through out the surrounding area.

Inside the fortress city, Rex looked very pale, but was given some coins for the escort, and directions to the best blacksmith in the city to take his scythe. He wasn't even sure if he was allowed in here! None the less, he explored the city as he followed the directions, thanking the gods that his eyes were hard to see that they were Asentari eyes. The sights and sounds were even more impressive. Eapara was busy, sure, but it paled in comparison to this. He found the place, Toral. That name sounded vaguely familiar, and he didn't know why. Walking in, his huge white bag slung behind him with his left hand holding onto the draw strings, he looked around. Place was empty of people...but it was clear that the armor and few weapons were very high quality.

He went to the counter and rang the bell. He looked sort of like a fish out of water, but that was more out of nerves than anything.

Lilian was in the back workshop making calibrations to her crossbow, her brown hair tied back. She wore a light leather jerkin that extended below the waist, and light pants, and leather boots beneath. The jerkin was nessassary in the workshop to ovoid burns from flying sparks. Lilian was just about finished when she heard the bell out front, and went to investigate, since Lukas wasn't home and her father was most definitely up to something in the far back of the workshop.

Lilian went out the front, where she found a young man who appeared to be no older than her with a large bag. He wore expensive looking clothing, with a longsword across your back. Lilian quickly scanned him up and down as she removed the jerkin and hung it up, reaving a short sleeved shirt underneath, allowing the cool air of the shop front to settle on her skin. It was hot back there, even with the cooling enchantments she'd placed around the room and the special air vents her father had built.

"Hi there!" she said, waving with her enchanted metal arm reflexively. "Welcome to Torals, best blacksmith and enchantment workshop in the city. How can I help?" She asked him, meeting his gaze with a soft smile. He was quite a handsome young man, but there was something about his eyes that made her linger on them as she waited for his reply.

Andreas Toral pushed his goggles up and mopped sweat from his brow. He was buried away at the back of his workshop, working on a gizmo that sprung into his mind over breakfast. It had been a particularly quiet day in the shop in terms of customers, so Andreas had given most of his staff the day off. The weather was conducive to outdoor relaxation, and Andreas liked to let those working for him get a bit of rest when he could. The rigorous demands of being the leading supplier of equipment to the Mondolin military, as well as the Knights of Mondolin, meant that the opportunities for rest were few and far between. Normally this would cause the workforce to become dissatisfied and restless, but such was the respect that Andreas commanded through both his skill and his character that those he employed in his shop were happy to do it.

Taking a swig of water and downing tools for a moment, Andreas decided to take a quick break from creating crazy things in order to check in on his daughter. Lilian was not quite as skilled a smith as her father, having dedicated her life to following her mother's footsteps in becoming a Knight. Still, she inherited enough of her father's raw talent that she was still adept at Andreas' chosen profession. Coupled with the fact that she was also already an accomplished enchanter, Lilian had the potential to surpass her father in the field of invention one day, and Andreas for one was looking forward to that day.

Andreas entered the main workshop and looked around. The place was quiet. His other child, Lucas, was at his uncle Xander's house, hanging out with his cousin Max while he had some downtime from his duties as a Knight of Mondolin. But Lilian was missing too, and Andreas decided to go and check the storefront. Maybe she was dealing with a customer. He always forgot that he couldn't quite hear the counter bell from the back workshop. He'd been meaning to make a better one, but like always he got sidetracked all of the time.

Emerging through the doorway out to the storefront, Andreas found Lilian introducing herself to a boy who was carrying a white bag and had a longsword strapped to his back. Andreas waited politely until Lilian finished, and then introduced himself too, smiling jovially. "Sorry to interrupt. I didn't hear the bell. I'm Andreas Toral. Welcome to my little shop, kiddo." Andreas reached over and ruffled Lilian's hair in a gesture of annoying affection designed to embarrass his daughter. "I see you've met my baby daughter already." He chuckled before continuing. "So, what brings you to this neck of the woods?"

A young lady with a metal arm came out from the back and started to speak to him, introducing the shop and making a bold statement. That was backed up by the merchants he had helped earlier. Then a man came out as well, and had overheard, introducing himself. Andreas Toral, the shop owner. The girl was his daughter apparently. Setting his bag down, the blond reached in. First came the "head" of the scythe, fully extended, connected by a very messed up chain. Then came the main shaft, followed by another length of very messed up chain, and the last little bit. The entire weapon was black, including the blade.

Laying it on the table, he spoke. "The merchant I escorted here said much the same. My scythe could use some repair. Just watch where you grab it and stuff...it's a six sectioned weapon that's collapsible and the end there flattens out into a blade. My mentor's friend gave it to me as a present and has served me extremely well...I'd really like to have fixed if possible..."

He was fidgety and nervous. Only a certain blacksmith in Lower Edia had even touched his weapon, and that was only because it was him that made it. But Rex had no choice here. He was a long ways from home. Though he did notice the girl staring at him. "What? Do I have something on my face?" Or could have been that his accent was weird. Which was possible. While he was more fluent than other Asentari in basic, it was still his second language. And he had heard that even their accent seemed more...old world. He hoped that didn't give away his origin. The last thing he'd want is to start a diplomatic incident.

Not long after Lilian greated the boy, her father came in and introduced himself, in his embarrassingly affectionate manner. The boy explained about his weapon and she could see her father's eyes lighting up as he beheld the weapon. She wondered how many replicas of the weapon he'd end up working on by the time he'd repaired it. He noticed she was staring and called her out in a partially rude manner, asking if he had something on his face. She gave him a cheeky grin. "Yeah, a nose and a little bit of baby chin hair." she replied.

But she kept looking at his eyes, and finally asked, "Where abouts are you from?" There really was something strange that she couldn't place, though maybe she was just imagining things. But asking straight out seemed to be the best method, assuming he answered at all. She doubted her father would pay to much attention once he got his hands on the scythe however.

Andreas was intrigued when the boy produced a very intricate weapon from the sack he was carrying. The weapon was a scythe of some description, jet-black in color. It appeared to be collapsible, though the chains connecting the various interlocking parts together had suffered considerable damage. Andreas was immediately enthralled by the weapon, immediately studying the various parts and mechanisms. "Fascinating. It's a very interesting piece of equipment. I wonder if I could do something similar maybe..." Andreas produced a small piece of parchment from his pocket and immediately scribbled some notes on it with a sharpened piece of charcoal.

Andreas was so absorbed in his study of the weapon that he almost didn't notice the secondary conversation that had commenced between Lilian and the boy. The boy asked why Lilian was staring at him, and Andreas snapped back into the current situation. He looked from his daughter to the boy to try and see what she was staring at. It was then he noticed the boy's eyes. They were slit, like a snakes. The only people he knew that possessed that trait was the Asentari. Andreas tensed almost unconsciously. While he had pretty much put to rest the circumstances regarding death of his wife during the Human-Asentari conflict, his daughter's feelings on the matter were still quite raw.

Lilian asked where the boy was from, but Andreas tried to strategically change the subject. "Sorry, I was lost in thought there. I'd love an opportunity to have a go at repairing this. It really is an impressive weapon. It shouldn't take too long, provided there's no hidden surprises, Mister, um... what was your name friend?" Andreas didn't know for sure if the boy was an Asentari, but he would rather not allow another conflict to break out in his shop.

Wait, chin hair? He was growing some! A quick check with his hand proved that he wasn't. Pouting and giving her a playful glare, Rex spoke. "Don't get my hopes up like that." Even Kronos can grow a little bit, but he still only had to shave twice a year it seemed. Unlike some other Asentari. Then came the question, and then Rex started to look a bit worried. Luckily, he didn't have to give a vague answer or lie about his origins thanks to her father. Who seemed to have caught on. Impressive really, considering his eyes and the lighting.

Shooting him a grateful look, Rex answered. "Rex von Broven. It does have an enchantment, but all it does is absorbs offensive magic and sends it back...if you swing it, otherwise it stores it for a little bit then disperses it harmlessly. There shouldn't be any other tricks attached to it. I can only imagine how long it took to make it initially and how much it cost my mentor's friend...only the chain isn't made of divinium..." If there was, they were new.

"Don't suppose you have a time frame? If it's gonna take a day or more, I could use a recommendation on inns...I've never been here before..." Hopefully there was no other questions...let alone something pertaining to his origin. He had to give the man some credit for noticing and strategically shifting topics.

Lilian sniggered as he inspected his face with his hand. He seemed pretty dissapointed and she couldn't help laughing at him. However he never answered her question, and her father also swiftly changed the topic, though he tried to hide it behind his enthusiasm for the weapon. At the mention of enchantments however, Lilian forgot all about his strange eyes and moved to inspect the blade.

"Ooh now that's more my style." She said examining the weapon. "Who enchanted it? I'd love to compare notes. Also have you considered trying to have the chain removed and replaced with an enhantment! It would cut down on weight, make it easier to store, and maybe even improve the reach. Plus this will never happen again, unless the handle gets messed up." She barraged Rex with a rapid stream of words, all enthusiasm. She also started to scribble down notes, comparing with her father. "I might be able to do something like that for you, but I'd probably need to study the enchantment already on the weapon. Without knowing anything about it I might mess something up and the next time you activate it..." She looked at him, pausing for dramatic effect. "Boom!"

Lilian looked at her father. "In the mean time we could replace the chain with Aurilium!" She said. "The reduction in weight wouldn't be comparable to an actual enchantment, but it would be far more efficient than steel." Rex asked about a timeframe and Lilian shared a glance with her father, and somewhere to stay while it was being fixed. "What do you think, Papa a day?" She asked. She looked at Rex. "eitherway, there's an Inn down the road. I can show you where if you want." She said. She was smiling, but she still had questions for him, and it would be easier to get answers from him without her father interfering.

Andreas let Lilian's bit of teasing slide, and chuckled when the boy acted disappointed with the lack of facial hair he had grown. "Maybe someday, kiddo." Andreas was relieved then when Rex told them about his weapon, as the mere mention of enchantments immediately seized Lilian's attention. Lilian began to hyper-verbalize in a manner eerily similar to her father when he was intrigued by something. Andreas smiled when she began comparing her notes with his. He ruffled her hair in the way she hated but could do nothing about.

Lilian mentioned Aurilium for the chain in order to cut down on weight, pending an enchantment. Andreas nodded, and began rooting under the desk until he produced a large book. He opened it and scanned it rapidly. "That's a good idea. I would've suggested Divinium but I don't have a shipment arriving until next week." Rex then asked for a time-frame, citing the need to organize lodgings until the weapon was mended. Andreas stroked his chin in thought. Lilian suggested showing Rex to an inn, and he nodded in agreement. "Good idea. I'll take a look at the weapon while you two are gone. I'll have a better idea once I examine how the chain is attached and such." Andreas scooped up the weapon and smiled warmly at Rex.

"Alright. I'd say go and get yourself set up. Come back to me when you're sorted and we'll go over what needs to be done. Deal?" He turned to Lilian and nodded at her suggestion. "Yeah I'd say the One-Winged Angel is probably the best bet. They're cheap enough while still being decent quality. You should try the trout while you're there if you get a chance. It's smoked in Mith Verdanus and it's really tasty."
