The Crystal Isles Info:
The archipelago of the Crystal Isles is located between the Near lands and the Proximate Isles along the main marine trade route from the Jade Kingdom to Daunton. There are 18 different islands of varying sizes with port cities and towns of varying size. Each island has the name of a different type of crystal prevalent on that island.
Bloodstone is the biggest island, home to the small but bustling, cosmopolitan port city of Sybar. Sybar is governed by the well loved Count Varis, a figure looked up to by the majority of the other island rulers. Bloodstone is also the location of a Portal Gateway that has fairly recently attuned with the Isle of Opposition. It is controlled by an organisation that has influence throughout the Crystal Isles known as the Crystal Masons, a no nonsense organisation that ensure the satisfaction of their clients and the safe arrival of their goods. Despite being a longer journey than porting directly from the Jade kingdom, this route has over the last few years become increasingly popular as merchants are able to exploit the rich and varied resources available throughout the Crystal Isles and also enjoy a fair priced, safe and trouble free port to the Isle of Opposition.
Nearby is another large island, Elestial. It is fairly well knowing that upon the island there is ongoing tension and escalating disputes between the residents of the town of Crystal Brook and the fey of the nearby Sildaine Forest. Crystal Brook is an agricultural community with a booming coffee bean and tobacco trade. The town's ruler is Lady Anya Tamora, a fair but stern woman who has sanctioned retaliation against fey incursions and is doing her best to protect her people. Orlando, her son, is brave and honest, but he has shown no interest in rulership since his father died a decade ago.
The ancient Sildaine Forest is home to an elven village that runs alongside the Crystal brook as it runs through the woods. Usually a tranquil and abundant woodland realm has been disturbed by strange weather and creatures, not to mention incursion from the nearby town of Crystalbrook. Carric, Lord of the Sildaine, has established edicts to keep nonfey out of the forest and tax those passing through on the roads. But even his youngest daughter, Juliana, a curious, determined and daring young woman, is among those reluctant to follow the decrees.

Streetwise DC 8; Requires Active Roll
The sun has risen over an hour ago, and still you sit waiting within Bloodstone Hall within the confines of Count Varis's palace, with little else to do but stare impatiently at the gouts of red and white that mark the dark green walls. A nervous castellan let you in, nodding vigorously as you spoke your purpose as if to say, 'Yes, yes I know.' He then left you wordlessly with these other folk before a table full of fruit, cheese, fresh bread, smoked meat and steaming hot coffee, most of which is now gone but for the crumbs. Apart from the others ushered inside with you, you have seen no one since.

"...like Poseidon himself pried me sails of tha' mast and next thing yer know, tha' bilge-sucking gypsy woman's ship sped ahead like she had a hun'red hands on deck!"
And so, Themes relates his tale of how the great pirate tribe lost a race to a young woman to the ragtag group that gathered.
"And me uncle Guntar! Blabbering blubber-mouth! He couldn't see a trap if it dressed itself in a purty, frilled white-gown and pranced in front o' his fat face!" Themes spat.
"And she was! Little lass had a mug so smug, I'd have cut her face off meself if I weren't so upset aboot' tha' sails..."

Zuri sat at one end of the table, listening politely to the Genasi weave his nautical tale. She smiled at all the right spots, and chuckled quietly at the man's conclusion. It seemed the sociable thing to do.
She held her fingers cupped loosely around a mug to keep from moving them around in anxious motion as she considered the others who were waiting for Varis.

"I think an open, honest approach would be better than trying to sneak up; my cousin was a sometime horse-thief, and he told me that if the horse spooks, you will never catch it. These unicorns are intelligent, by any standard, so if they see us sneaking and decide we're up to no good, we might as well quit, because we'll never catch them." Sabynha was still working out in her mind, just how this was going to work at all, but she tried to sound confident.
"Follow me, friends, and try to look... 'unthreatening'."
Sabynha began walking from the forest edge and into the meadow, with her arms wide, and unthreatening. The peace-bond on her blade was clearly visible, and she walked slowly. The vistani called upon everything she knew of her heritage, and spoke as eloquently as she could muster in the fey tongue of her ancestors, "vedui' vanya shee-rokko lye ier sinome e' seere."

Gray's idea of the least threatening possible: a tiny fox! With that idea in his head, he waits until they're far enough away that Robin might not see him transform, and then shrinks down into his tiny furry form. After that, he trots up to Sabynha and paws at her legs in an attempt to get her to pick him up. After all... one less humanoid would be much less threatening, and a bard with a cute pet could only gain them bonus points with the unicorns! He tried his best to look as cute and cuddly as possible.

The unicorns' heads snap around and lock onto the approaching group from the moment they emerge from the treeline. The larger of the two young unicorns instantly careens in front of the smaller one and lowers its head and shakes its mane. The other disappears from view and reappears ten feet further away. At which point Sabynha begins speaking to them in the elven tongue, her voice enchantingly compelling even to those who do not understand the language.
The aggressive unicorn raises its head to regard the group anew. The skittish smaller one trots forward, but as it is about to pass its protector, the larger one rears up onto its hind legs and brings its hooves down hard onto the earth.The smaller one stops still and a voice is heard which those who speak elven understand.
The other unicorn nips at the larger one's neck but it merely shrugs it off and paws the ground aggressively.
