Opale leaves the meeting room and gather with teh other of the Terran group. "Hi. My name is Opale di Senzio. I'm a wizard, but I must warn you that I'm not the flashy type of spellcaster. Fireball, Missile of force or dark energy ray, that's spell I cannot use. My speciality is more the subtle way. Illusions, charms, boosting effects. I have a nice array of spell in that way."

Michael appears, wearing an iron-grey breastplate worked with a black pillar on the left breast. His shield is likewise of black iron.

He carries a heavy black hammer and a wickedly curved knife at his belt.
"Michael Grannion, Commander of Sela."

He sits easily in his armor.
"I am not a nice person. I am quite comfortable with that."

Zack is happy to note that he has met, at least briefly, with most of the group and actually provided the arms and armor of most.
"I'm Zack Grimm," he says to those who are new and then points to the man besides him. "This is my younger brother, Ducane."

Zack is a human man close to six feet in height with dark hair and a light complexion. He wears dark clothes and has a finely-crafted scythe.
 
*Andric Lenton arranges a meeting with the Terran group later that afternoon. He arrives leading a plain bespectacled dark-haired woman of thirty-something in a gray robe wearing Fallonese colours.*

"Greetings, friends. I would journey with you myself, but my duty as a Councilor of Fallon will not allow it, and I'm not sure if I would be strong enough to be of any assistance to you all in any case--you seem to have access to powerful magics from what I hear of you, far beyond what I know. I found Ms. Aclives among the Fallonese representatives. I must admit that I am not terribly familiar with her, but I'm new to this, so I don't know everyone yet. However, she was the only one among us here who had mastered magics strong enough to compare to those of you in this group and who was willing to accompany you. Are you in need of any mundane equipment for this mission? If so, Fallon will provide it, though I would imagine that you may have that covered since you are all such mighty heroes. Ms. Aclives?"

"My name is Ayanel Aclives. You can call me Aya. I should be a good complement to the magics of Ms. Opale, from what I have heard. I specialise in the direct magics, and the subtle enchantments are my weakness."

"Excellent. Ms. Liore agreed to come and give some more specific instructions on the general vicinity where the shard should be. Do you have any other questions in the meantime?"

"Please to meet you, Mistress Aclives." tells Opale to Ayalen

She then add for Andric Lenton"For mundane equipement. Maybe we wil need some. I can quickly think of food, water, climbing equipment and light sources, as if I understood well, we will go underground. But we will see to give you a more precise list as soon as we know more about our business. Also, we might need some spell. I'll see with Ayanel to see if we have all we need."

She then come back to Ayalen. "Once we know what we will meet, I suggest we look at the spells we have access and maybe share the ones we will think usefull, so to give us a better flexibilty to the coming task."
 
"No offense, Ms. diSenzio, but I'm afraid we don't have time for a girl's night out swapping stories, spells, and secret family recipes, though I'm not averse to one of those after we get that shard as soon as we can and beat the cultists to it. Instead, I'll teach you how to understand my arcane formulae and you can teach me yours, and then we can just prepare spells off each others' books."

"Ms. Aclives, are you sure?"

"Yes. It could take months to finish all that scribing."

"Alright then, I'll leave that to the Wizards. If you make a list of all the equipment you need, we will make sure you have all that you need."

On entering the room Hulgyr gives the people he already knows a smile. After Opale introduces herself he replies "Hi Opal! I am Hulgyr. I am strong and have a big sword. I hit bad folk with it. Also have a shiny armor. Zack made it real good!" After Michael makes his introduction, Hulgyr add "Michael just grumpy. He's a nice guy!"

"Good heavens! I had not realised until now that we had an orc on the team. You should beware, sir. I assume by your presence here that you must have good intentions, but there has been word of an evil Orc Shaman amassing power in the northern lands. Some might assume that you are connected with him, considering that most other orcs are evil."

Michael had been impressed with Ayanel Aclives, but it's a little deflating to find out she missed the 7 foot tall orc in full plate.

"I have at least some food, some climbing gear, and some light sources."
Michael pats his bag.
"Likely not enough of each, but that will depend on how much time we need to spend rummaging around. We'll need warm clothes and a thick blanket or two: it gets cold underground. Possibly also mining gear, though I can help a little with that as well."

"Hi I'm Eternity, nice to meet you Ayanel, and you too Opale, Zack and Ducane. Zack, you made Hulgyr's plate? Very nice work. I should have come to you with my mithril shirt and shield too. With regards to supplies, I require very little. Kailie would've eaten a lot if she could've come, but we had to leave her in Orussus." says the Elan.

"I havn't met Hulgyr before, but I am well aware that appearance is something that can easily deceive people. I know some humans who could sell there mother to have more gold while I have met some kobold who wanted to establish a peaceful and collaborative cohabitation with humans. I don't necesserly trust every ogre or goblin I meet, but I know there is a way to be cautious with people without letting my jugement tainted by prejudice." replies Opale.

(OOC: That wasn't Ayanel. That was Andric Lenton. He's a bit naive. Ayanel Aclives is in grey.)

"Well, since Rayne Liore is not here yet, I'm going to head out and gather supplies, by your leave Councilor Lenton. It's more efficient and will save us time in the long run--as long as enough people are here to hear the information, they can tell me later on the road. We're going to have a long time on the road, I think, so explaining that will give us something to do. If I understand correctly, most of you left your horses in Orussus. Give me a count of how many need horses, and I'll go acquire those too. Councilor Lenton, if you could give me our funding?"

*Ayanel heads off to purchase supplies for the trip. Some time later, Rayne heads in.*

"Hello everyone. I have more information for your ears only to help you narrow down the possible locations of the Shard. Far to the northeast, in the Lands of Earth, lies an area of strong terran influence and energy, where ley lines are strong. In the midst of the Wendigo Mountrains is a peak known as Dragonfang Spire which contains a descent deep into the Underdark. It is hypothesised that the shard is somewhere down there. Exactly where, no one knows. But beware--the strong energy in that area, when progressing even further underground, becomes a powerful radiation that has a tendency to scramble certain sorts of magics, including dimensional and divination spells."

Eternity adds her name to those in need of a horse. She could travel as a brooch again, but would prefer the company on the long journey ahead.

"Do we have a map into the Wendigos?" Michael says quietly.

"If they're as bad as I've heard, horses may be superfluous after a while."

"I'll need a horse too. Thanks.

Dragonfang Spire, I'm not familiar with that. I'm not great in geography. But I have a few basic knowledge about the underdark. Dimensional magic? What do you expect for behavior for such spell. I have learn the dimensional hoping spell you used in that tower of yours. Never knew the whole story, my cousin and his friends have been very evasive on the subject and I think I should not know why. But still, I was thinking to use it if we need to quickly escape or jump over chasm."

"Dimension Door? That's short range enough that the amount of interference will probably only shift you by a matter of feet. Attempting anything on a larger scale than that could get you stuck in a wall and killed."

"You have heard correctly. Unfortunately, they are also extremely far northeast, deep in the lands of Earth, so the horses will be essential to make good time there."
