Rystil Arden said:"Okay, I'll start. My name is Alicia Thalask. I'm from Hendrallia. I'm afraid I'm not much of a fighter, and I can't use any magic worth mentioning, but I can try to help organise the team and keep our spirits up, and I hope to do the best I can to ensure our success. Not only is this mission crucial to our safety, but the honour of the nation of Hendrallia rests on our success. I know it might not mean as much to you, but my nation's honour means the world to me. I hope we can do Hendrallia proud, and each of your homelands as well. How about each of you introduce yourself in order? I'm looking forward to meeting you all," she looks at everyone in the eyes as she speaks. Those with keen eyes might notice her lip quivering just slightly as she addresses Nura and Ximix, but if so, it is barely noticable.
*Alicia raises an eyebrow.*Ximix said:Ximix sits at the table with a glass of wine untouched at his elbow. He watches and listens, and when there is a lull he seems to realize that the others are looking at him to speak.
"I am called Ximix, and am originally from the war-torn region of Rivenblight. I left my home in search of knowledge for myself in Gliran's name, and perhaps someday for the help of my own homeland. I know nothing of glory, nor care to. My capabilities lie with healing in these circumstances, though I can also use lesser arcane items should that be needed. I am not a fighter, nor am I stealthy. I will stand with you and advise and heal as I am able through the gifts of my lord Gliran." His speech stops clipped, as though he is embarrassed to speak so much, and he lowers his gaze to his wine.
The cleric sits in his rich blue-purple vestment robe, a heavy looking dark-blue metal disk embossed with a longsword over an open book hangs from his neck. His features are atypically Elven, sharp nose and tipped ears revealed from his long hair which is bound back from his face severely by cords... his eyes however are a soft gray, and his stare seems to be distant.

"Rivenblight? I trust that you do not share the opinions of your representative?" she asks with a measured and carefully cool tone.
Ximix said:The following is ROLE PLAYING, not REAL LIFE, please don't take this seriously, I am not.
"Huh? No, It isn't over just on say-so. Just because he isn't a cultist does not mean that he is on our side. For instance, I don't suspect Sage Thiliaerin to be a cultist, but there's no way I would let him into our group for this mission, as he has stated that he wants to sabotage us," Alicia tries to explain patiently, but she is clearly a bit irritated with Jallembo, "I'm going to need to know that he's on our side here and not Rivenblight's side--the side that will be trying to stop us and cause us to fail. Considering that his nation is actually literally against us now, that is not too much to ask, and there's really no room to debate over whether or not it is. This has nothing to do with Hendrallia being against Rivenblight and everything to do with Rivenblight being quite literally against us. I'm sure Ximix understands that too. He is, after all, the one who said that if anything he says or does causes a problem, we should tell him. Let the man talk. IF he is truly with us, I am sure he can convince us of it with his own words."Amaury said:Jallembo frowns as he hears the words and the conclusion of the Hendrallian girl.
"Hey! Stop there! Are you doubting Ximix's words?? I know Ximix.
We've fought together and he's always been loyal to the group and to Life generally
speaking. Plus, we've all gone through this lie detection magic thing. He was not excluded
and I see no reasons why political matters between two countries should fore-judge of
Ximix's attachment to this cause.
That the loss of some of your family affects you is understandable but not to the point of
doubting Ximix's intentions! Judge him on his actions!..." Jallembo says in a growingly
He adds: "Now, I hope this issue is over and that you can start giving us
some information about this shard and mission!"
OOC: I and Jallembo have no clue as to who this Alicia is, whether she has some authority
or else. so i play as she's just a NPC who's been selected to guide us. if I misunderstood, let
me know and i'll correct - maybe...
