[BR-F25] Paving the Way to Floor 26 [Shadow, the Malevolent]


Recommended Posts

Nerves wracked the woman as she scrolled through her inventory and stats. A perusal deemed it satisfactory, though not after a bout of paranoia to double check. The culmination of all her effort lied on this very day. A woman who worked hard on the field would dedicate that drive for a better purpose, for all her effort was worth. Though the alternative was to sulk without her loved ones nearby, she would reinvent her purpose here. If her sister would rest for the entirety of her time here, her conscience would not allow her to watch, idle. Clearing these floors meant she would aid the other some way. The sooner these floors cleared, the sooner she would see her sister conscious.

 

At the root, Haine was softer than she let on. Though she braved a strong face to her love, anxiety plagued her mind that day. What if she passed on that day, or worse, more of those she held dear? She would hold her badge as Firm Anima's assault captain to the best of her ability. It was the first time all captains would partake.

With Kiluia in stride, the woman arrived at the point of the rendezvous. Living up to its intel, the room was shrouded in ominous air. Nary a trace of light was in the room, save for the dim lanterns lining the interior. The room was filled with others, in clusters handing out rations for battle. She squared her shoulders and entered the fray.

Silver hair flowing behind her, she stepped into the area amidst the other frontliners. The last time she had seen them together had been at the meeting. That had gone fine enough. She was hoping to herself that they still had no idea who she was. Her and they didn't get off on the right foot in the previous boss battle she had participated in. Her eyes searched the area, finding several familiar faces. However, she spoke to none of them. Instead, she make her way, participating in a few of the buffs that were provided for them. She couldn't help but notice Hikoru hadn't shown yet. Perhaps he was hiding?

She found herself alone in the corner of the preparation area. The boss meeting informed them that the boss was named the Shadow. She wondered if that would negatively impact her. Either the shadows would work against her or maybe they would boost her. It was almost like a toss of the coin. She activated her hiding skill, sinking back and becoming one with the shadows.

The blonde warrior stepped out onto the battlefield. A worn white cloak draped over his silvery armor. In the center of his armor, a pillar fragment lay imbedded in casting light around his body. He pulled the cloak's hood off of his head and revealed the his features in full. His eyes scanned the battlefield that he had fought on. The Shadow had fought the six of them on this battlefield, demonstrating a small portion of his strength. He had toyed with the Penguin Rangers until they had decided to escape. Orgoth ensured their escape and now lay in the clutches of the enemy. He brought his hand to touch the new pendant that wrapped around his neck, a symbol of twin axes crossed. It was the drop he received from the boss raid

Fire rested in his eyes, tempered and waiting for the moment to unleash. A hand on the hilt of his blade, he stepped over to @Baldur who seemed to be speaking with Shield. "Ready for this?" He asked the pair. "This will be the toughest battle we've faced." Of course, he had no doubt that they would prevail. They were stronger than they would ever be. Buffed to the maximum, numbers far greater than every previous boss raid. This boss was about the understand the collaborative power of the players.

It was a long time coming. Itzal had taken a great deal of time to craft the raid party several debuff consumables. And while he himself was carrying several, he still had plenty of evasion and accuracy debuffs he could hand out for players to use on any creature the boss decided to use as a puppet. On top of that he had purchased several consumables from a merchant organization, and was informed that someone would be bringing feasts for specific consumables. With those, and his house buffs, he should have little trouble with this boss fight. Even if things went south, he had a teleport crystal in hand. As he expected everyone else to have as well... He couldn't believe that this time he was the one arriving late. Usually he was among the first to arrive, but he ended up preparing a little too close to call. At any rate, he was arriving now and that's all that mattered at this point. Moving quietly with his stealth skill active, he entered the area everyone had gathered. The darkness helped him blend in, his black armor fitting perfectly with the environment, as he scanned who was here. Baldur, Macradon, Shield. Oscar. Bahr. Mari. Calrex. Hidden. Morgenstern. And now himself. There were a few others he hadn't come to know just yet.

Seeing the feasts, Itzal moved out of the shadows behind @Oscar's stand and took his serving, chuckling at the "literal pile of diamonds" that was evidently edible, and nodded to Oscar silently before walking back over to the corner, once again becoming engulfed in shadows. As he ate, his face still hidden behind the shadowy mist generated by his hood, he continued to observe the players. Most of them didn't seem to be bothered by the ominous and rather depressing atmosphere, which was both good and bad. Itzal himself, had been operating in the shadows long enough to become accustomed to this. However his mind was currently set to a more analytical, focused, and 'at the ready' mindset as they were about to fight an incredibly powerful boss. Itzal would also be using his surprise attack mod for the very first time. Against a shadow. He feared that because it was the shadows itself by default, that it wouldn't be affected by 'stealth' readings, but if that was the case that was fine... He didn't have vanish yet after all. It was going to be a 'one and done' deal. He would however, be able to apply debuffs to his opponents, as well as use his DoT sword.

Once he finished eating he stepped into the light again. "I brought some debuffs with me to use against the boss. I have incarcerate, misperception, hypnosis and lullaby. Specifically, I have several of lullaby and hypnosis. The reason I brought more than two is so that we can use it against any puppet the boss might use. I can't carry them all inside however, so if anyone wants to take one, preferably one of each per party, we should have enough to use it on any and all enemies it throws at us, while still saving some for the actual boss itself. If you want one, just approach and I'll hand you one of each." With that, he looked at @Baldur and Oscar in particular, since they seemed to be the ones most organized and somewhat leading the group at the moment, nodded to them, and stepped back into the shadows, continuing to wait for everyone to arrive.

The flock of Frontliners was getting big, quite large. Parties were going to be filled out properly, perhaps not full parties of 6, but maybe a few with 6 and some with 5, that should still be adequate enough to tackle this debacle. Looking around himself and trying to centralize himself by his designated part, Macradon would stick his banner into the ground and unsheathe his sword. “Frontliners, the time is slowly approaching for the boss raid, let’s show Cardinal and Kayaba what we are made of! Let’s show him how determined we are to beat his game!” he called out and got into a defensive stance to activate his Parry skill. 

“This battle will probably be fierce, but I’ve seen what the frontlines can do if we work together, and I am very sure that we can work together today. I have seen all the work, all the preparation being spread around, shared among everyone present today. 
It fills me with joy that we can all cooperate, especially after the ruckus that was the 23rd boss raid. There might still be personal wounds between some of you, I know I have some, but let us put those selfish thoughts away, and let us all work for the betterment of the citizens of Aincrad!
This will mark the first fourth of our journey, and even though it may feel like one long slog, it should not dissuade us from pushing forward. Let’s all do this together!”

he called out, hoping that his words would get to someone at least.

 The gathering of the beasts of the game had been bought together for this moment. He was hardly even worth the time to be considered being near these people as he was potentially if not the lowest level person here. It did not bother him at all as he was not here to prove anything to anyone but to be with his guild leader and friend, Raidou. The summoning of him relatively shocked him a bit as he was unsure as to why he was being told to come join them in a fight but he was not going to question the judgement of a man he knew for so long.

Upon arrival, Raidou had already managed to get to him. “Yo.” He greeted. Of course, with the amount of people here and the priority of the floor itself, the tension seemed pretty lax he thought as he was given an antidote and a potion to consume. Without a second thought, he tucked the antidote away and consumed the potion that was given to him. If Raidou had said anything to him, he missed it. He was more or less absorbing the view of the people he didn’t know. What an interesting sight to behold really.

More players had gathered, which was encouraging.  The deadline was looming now.  Chatter persisted among the individual groups, but notable groups were breaking out based on guild affiliations, old friendship and rivalries.  Freyd lined up with the rest at the immense buffet provided by @Oscar, waving the mad giant of a man a quick British salute, recalling their recent exploits against the pirates on floor 16.  Their ballistic finale was the perfect culmination to that particular bit of mayhem.  It had taken hours to get the tobacco leaves off afterwards.

A few other familiar faces stood out in the crowd.  He and @Crozeph had worked together against the Lich champion on floor fourteen while he hunted down clues to discover the leader figure behind the Sundered Spire.  He offered him a small vial filled with something akin to the cold void of space. 

“For Zajcica,” he offered quietly, “To help her keep us safe, and maybe just herself as well.”

His curt summons from @Hidden in the aftermath of the Battle of Cratered Lake had proven to be an interesting challenge.  Turning his back to her while facing Blood Bane had been a careful risk, but the lack of punctures said something about her character... or maybe just her aim.  Approaching the last place he had seen her, he made no overtures and did nothing to single her out.  Instead, he simply left a small phial containing a red liquid on a nearby bit of ruined, sculptured stone.  A small tag was tied to it by a string with a plain message: 

‘To Hidden.  Because you took off the cloak, and tried words instead of knives.  Enjoy. – Freyd.’

@Macradon had fought with their group against Hrym, Hel and Fenrir, and proven his prowess under dire circumstances.  He hadn't crossed paths with @Cordelia since their skirmish with the Spires second force outside of Coral, just before the lake gave way.  All received subtle, cowled nods of respect and recognition.  It wasn't his way to make a big show of things.  There were plenty of others here who excelled in that department, and he was quite content to leave it to them.

@Mari was there too, with @ChaseR lingering nearby.  He offered them the same courtesy, though tensions were particularly strained with the latter after recent events.  Despite what the boy thought, he bore him no ill will and hoped that there would be time to settle things once the dust settled.  @NIGHT was there too.  The quiet woman had graciously and unexpectedly invited him to complete the Easter Dungeon.  He still wasn't quite sure why, but appreciated the gesture nonetheless.  She got a smile, along with the customary nod.

Handed healing crystals by @Baldur, he accepted them graciously, offering a short bow to the man for his foresight and generosity.

Logistics handled, he joined the rest of his guild.  All four captains of Firm Anima had rallied to the front lines.  It was a first, and worth commemorating.  Moving behind the inseparable pair of @Haine and @Kiluia Seiko, black-gloved hands gently tapped them on the should from behind.  Freyd stood between them on purpose, though a step behind.

"Haine, I was going to save this as a wedding gift, but I would rather know that you have it in hand before we face today’s battle.  Let its light serve you well against the shadows and always help you and Kiluia find your way back together when you are apart."  Holding out his hand, he summoned a rich wooden-hafted spear tipped with a white metal, glaive like blade and tip.  It seemed a weapon worthy of an angel and very much at odds with his own countenance.  Handing it to her, he pressed firmly on her shoulder to offer faith, hope and reassurance.  Kil got a slap on the should and an apologetic shrug.  “I thought it best to do everything I could to keep her with us.”

Lastly, Freyd took his place beside @Raidou, the guild’s leader and foremost of the vanguard.  No words needed to be shared.  Each knew the others’ thoughts and will.  All affairs were in order, and promises made, and yet he held out an unexpected gift for his opposite.  

“Take it,” he offered with a gentle smirk.  “The name was too appropriate to pass up.”

Freyd Partakes of the following offered by Oscar:

A Bottle of Cooking Oil [2 EVA Feast] 
Tom [2 Protein Feast] 
A Literal Pile of Diamonds [45 MIT Feast] 
Blue Cow [2 ACC Feast] 

(Primary stat block updated on original post)

Freyd gives the following item to Haine:

Radiance of Harmonious Dawn (T3 Perfect Weapon (2HAS) - Bleed 1, Holy 1, Burn 1)
Acquisition ID [167288c] | Roll ID:  168787, 168788, 168789
A vibrant, gleaming white-tipped spear set on a perfectly weighted hickory haft.  The haft itself is inlaid from one end to the other with Celtic knots in gold filigree signifying the unbreakable bond between the weapon and its bearer and promising flaming wrath and fury to those foolish enough to stand before it.  The spear blade glows softly and emits a soft, soothing warmth in the presence of any ambient light source.

Freyd receives from Baldur:

Flash of Rejuvenation [Consumable](x5) Perfect Tierless Crystal | Instantly heals 30*Tier HP to the entire party
[144790-3] [145147] [145150] [145150-1] [145150-2]

Personal preparation before arrival:

Zandra blinked a few times as the first light stroke her and woke her up from her beauty sleep. She sat up in her bed, stretching her arms high in the air as she yawned. She rubbed the sleepiness away from her eyes with her fist. She left the bed and went up to the window. As every morning, she stood there for awhile, watching the waves of the sea rolling in on the beach. The view always gave her calm. She followed up the fresh breeze by taking a shower. The hot water rolled down her skin as her mind travelled up a few floors. Today was the day she would meet him again. Will he rember her? Probably not, after all he is just an NPC. But it was quite an entertaining fight they had been having. It was her favourite kind of fight. Together with four of the players she actually trusted and would rely on in a dangerous situation. Today it would be more people, but that also mean each individual didn’t really mattered as much.

After half an hour she left the shower and putted on some clothes. She went up to her potion shelf. Started with a bottle with red liquid. She felt her teeths get sharper and hartrate increased. Followed by a green potion that hardened her skin in a dragonscale pattern on her elbows and knees. The neon-green salve made her teeths drip with poison, the yellow salve made her blood immune to dot damage. Finished off with another red potion that increased her health a bit, some food as well as a scale to increase her defence. ‘’Well Zita, I guess we are ready now.’’ She equipped her gear, putted some backup gear in her battle-ready inventory. Lastly, she grabbed her banner before leaving the house and going towards the fight of the month.

Everything was in order. As the paladin awoke this morning, she knew the date: It was time to clear this floor. Looking at her new gear along with the armor she had proudly donned for awhile now set upon it's rack, she couldn't help but contemplate how well she would do. She might be one of the toughest people in Aincrad, but that didn't make her invincible. She wasn't quite at the level she hoped she could reach before this all began, but time was ever so limited. Level 68 would have to do for this fight.

She wasted no time getting ready and heading to floor twenty-five. This would be her first time on the floor, which was pretty much just a massive maze of nothing. She couldn't see herself spending to much time on this floor later down the line. Soon, she would meet up with everyone else, ready to face the horrors that the scouting party had endured beyond the boss room doors.

Morgenstern would be her partner tank. Every other tank she knew, she was put with the one that she knew the least. That made her nervous to say the least. She had no idea how he tanked or if they would even get along at all. Before she could find him though, Baldur came to greet her and Crozeph. Wishing the both of them luck, then imparting them both two extremely rare and impossible to get Safeguard potions. Yuki immediately got defensive. "B-Baldur-dono, I can't take this! This is so extremely rare." His insistence made it difficult for her to deny however. "Alright.. I'll keep it. If I don't use it, you're getting it back, if I do use it, I'll pay you for it." She wouldn't allow herself to take so much for free.

Now, Yuki would turn to Crozeph and give him a long, solemn look with a soft smile. "Do what you can to keep yourself safe, okay? I know were in the same party, but I still can't guarantee that I can block everything. We aren't the only ones that need to make it out of here. If things go south, use your safeguard and teleportation as soon as possible. I'll have to stay behind and make sure that everyone else can make it out alive. Once everyone has made it out, I will join." Her words were harsh, but true. If the need to stay behind arises to give someone and opportunity to flee, then Yuki would be there until they could make it.

Finally, the paladin could find herself standing next to Morgenstern, her tanking partner. Through a bit of argument, she had been pushed into the spot of main-tank over him. From what she knew, he was a lot more experienced in the floor boss raids than her. It was nerve wracking to think that he might be upset that she was placed ahead of him for the tanking position, but she didn't even know his build. Waving the man down, she would smile as she approached. "Oi~" The paladin started and stopping next to him. "I am your main tank then? I hope that I don't cause any trouble with my inexperience. Please go easy on me."

There was very little reason to be a glutton. NIGHT knew this, and yet the buffs had to keep coming. One portion was a lot -- excessive, even, the word ringing in her mind with a blur of red sweeping past her vision, her sights landing on that familiar blinding white mop.

All she could do was munch on the fluffy marshmallow bit in the palm of her hands. A tear at it with her teeth, as the player continued to look around the room in indifference. All of them had to be barking one speech or another at each other, almost as though they thrived off the sound of their voices.

She hated it. But even as she ate she knew it might be the last she would hear from any of them. Best go out quietly into that deep dark, the player mused. One final gulp was enough to empty her grasp of that sweet treat.

As people came and joined the gathering crowd, a few players added in a buff or two that hadn't been in his list of supplies. Shield took a portion from Yuki and one from Raidou, adding them to his slowly shrinking pile. Before he left Yuki's side, however, he took her by the shoulder and pulled her aside. 

"Yuki," he said, his tone urgent but patient. "I do not like that you're playing main tank today. It's not that I don't think you have the stats. This is just the wrong floor for a greenhorn to be jumping in with both feet." He pulled open his menu, setting up a transfer window and sending over a brand new shield that he had just found while adventuring with Zandra. "I know you use aura enhancements to add to your defenses. Consider this an investment in your survival. If you feel the need to repay me someday, we'll discuss that later." With that, he sent the item, gave her shoulder a gentle, 'off you go' kind of shove before turning to look around the gathering to find his guild again.

"@Mari," he said, giving his fellow pillar a nod and opening up another window. "I have some things for you that you requested." It had been a while since their uncomfortable meal together. It was hard to look at her in the face now. He knew that his ideas would feel like a betrayal of trust to her, but in his mind, he didn't see any other choices. He remained silent on the matter and sent over two spears. "Both are interesting, though not what I was hoping to find for you exactly. I hope they serve you well."

As Freyd took to his shoulder, a palmed crystal in his clutches. "Whatever happens..." Raidou let the sentence break to pieces, for it need not be spoken. The object broken as it slid down his weapon twisting the light it held via the pillar fragment to what appeared infrared. The weapon already dull drained even more into an abysmal sharpness, it grew heavier. Fitting for it would over him that much more to throw around. "I apologize in advance if your faced with that call, but not a single one of them will fall first. I hope you understand." he offered the whisper as he fiddles with his glasses, on most days he was giving and thoughtful. He would offer a hand or an object to aid in their efforts, play his part and leave without a word. But not today, today he was taking the right to be selfish.

Itzal watched people continue to arrive, @Zandra being one of them. He was about to send her a message when he decided to just drop by. He walked over to another player who brought even more feasts, and took the foods from his area. As he ate them he walked over to her and greeted her. "Zandra." He said. when he was close enough to where only she could hear him he nodded to the food. "I recommend having some. Good food, and it will give you a lot of stat buffs. The edible diamonds is interesting also. Tastes kind of like cereal. I'm going to use the hide skill so that I can trigger surprise attack once we're inside, so I'll see you in there." Itzal continued on to the corner where the shadows hugged close to him. Within the darkness he ate the rest of his meal. At this point he was stuffed, but he didn't feel the sluggish, negative effects of eating too much. One of the very great benefits of this game. Sighing, he drew his sword and kept it in his hand, ready for when they jumped into the big fight. So many consumables... But would it even be enough? He hoped so...

His slender frame moved slightly to turn to see who had grasped his shoulder. A blink was given to Freyd who had appeared behind him. Interesting. He hadn’t noticed him before and normally he was able to sense people a little bit better. No matter. It wasn’t like it was a stranger went and poked him several times to grab his attention. A slight smile crossed his lips as he waved at his fellow captain. “Yo to you.” He would look at the man. It was when @Freyd - The Whisper in Shadows spoke something poetic which seemed to garner happiness within himself. When presented with a weapon for Haine, he was amazed at it with a bigger smile.

“Well that is on hell of a gift.” He look over the spear and looked at @Haine to gauge her reaction. It was when he noticed his Guild master presenting feasts along with the others. He took a sigh and noticed how many they had to consume. This was getting real extremely quickly. A look gave toward their small group as they hung around relatively within ear shot range of each other. “Cheers, I suppose.” He spoke as he started to gather the food and consume them. @Raidou

Out like a light. Cardinal knew her routine by now, and it was with ease that she slipped into the shadows even in plain sight of the other players. They seemed not to care, anyway. Perfect for someone of her stature, thriving in the darkness -- out of comfort, she drew Jack's Executioner from the ether, watching the shadowy tendrils unravel before her, her fingers finding comfort in its worn and tattered grip.

Maximum durability. Polished to a tee. In it she could barely spot her reflection, especially under the low light conditions. Her eyes narrowed, inspecting her weapon's edges. A prayer, mouthed to the system, hoping that it would give her strength and luck in these trying times.

NIGHT lowered her blade after a moment. Her empty hand was pulled together in a fist, the ball of her thumb rubbing her palm. One last reminder to herself -- a promise unsaid, but equally known to the both of them.

At the end of the day, she had to come home.

Only a small breath escaped from beneath his helm before Calrex shook his head, "Its been a while, maybe I'm getting a little shaken up. Gotta catch my breath for a moment."

Placing both hands on the sides of his helmet a small sliding noise could be heard before the bluenette revealed his face beneath, pulling his protection off for a moment. He closed his eyes and gave a sight, only to open them and see that suddenly there was a person in front of him, swiping furiously on his inventory, "Eh...can I help yo..."

Moments later a metric pile of items hovered in the air in front of him, causing a bead of sweat to form against his head while lifting his arms to receive the feast items and healing crystal, "T-Thank you...this means a lo..."

"...and he's already moved on to another person. Well...nonetheless this should help..."

Finding a spot to sit down he picked up each of the feast items and began to munch them down, seeing the various reflective icons appear beneath his energy bars at the edge of his vision, "Good...maybe this will help after all. Great to know everyone's done their best to cover for all the participants. Maybe I can put a little more confidence into how this battle might turn out..."

Looking over at @Macradon as he bit into his own Peep feat, the bluenette felt a queasiness in his stomach from the traumatic memory, before looking down and seeing that the last thing he had to consume was also from the same event, "Ugh...you've gotta be kidding me."

Glancing over at his two compatriots, Mac and @Mari , for a brief moment, Calrex gave a small sigh, then lifted up his part of the feast, "Well...down the hatch..."

The yellow sugary bird disappeared into his mouth, and the Ultramarine Knight had to stifle a gag for a brief period while swallowing the feast before he gave a sigh of relief, "Alright, that's the last of it. As long as it doesn't decide to come jumping out of my gullet for whatever reason..."

The last of the requisite goodies had arrive.  Freyd made the rounds a second time to ensure that he hadn't missed anything.  Noticing that Hidden hadn't collected the little package he'd left out, he returned and collected that as well.  Leaving it out would simply a waste.  Someone was bound to need it as some point.  The last of his buffs in order, the Whisper busied himself sorting out his battle-ready inventory and ensuring that he had what would be most likely effective.  Going in blind was less than optimal, and there were too many possibilities to cover.

Taking a walk about the room, he set his gaze upon every detail, wondering if it might offer some insight.  Game designers were a tricky and perverse bunch, often leaving subtle clues to the dangers ahead in the most inconspicuous of details.  You just had to know what to look for and where.  He knew neither.

Everyone clung and dug through the varied meals and consumables and with this moment of silence between them. You could taste the unrest in the air, it lingered on some making it obvious it was their first time in these sort of affairs. But that turbulence would do them no favors, the words offered by @Macradon were needed. The man played that very same part that he had prior, in the strangest of dreams. Perhaps merely his impressions of the man had filled in the blanks for him. He was reticent and curious, if again any word spoken would have an effect. To them he was a stranger, the wanderer that arrived out of the blue and offered aid but not sure of from where. This breeds the very same instance that it had in reality. This slight insecurity or last wishes, the safety measures were warranted but the premise was setting up for failure.

Crozeph felt less worried as the players began pouring in, quite ironic for someone like him who gets nervous in large crowds. As Yuki gave him instructions if things turn too deadly for squishy players like him, Crozeph nodded. Talking seems to be not part of his mood, he could only watch as the others prepare. There were items that were laid down and everyone began partaking and so Crozeph knew he had to at least take a piece for him. He also took something from Meteor Yeet who was probably giving something "oh, yeah I'll give this to her." The first one was the feast that Yuki made from what he gave her, an item that he got from the dungeon with Night and the lost boys. There were a few more and he still has a few more space in his inventory.

He kissed Yuki on the forehead and slid quietly in the crowd, trying to partake of the feasts without getting unwanted attention. So many familiar faces, Night, Freyd who gave him something for Yuki, Macradon, and the select few of Jacob's Ladder who can handle the fight, maybe"This should be enough..." he thought as he continued to take buffs for himself.

Crozeph consumed feasts from:

Post Action: Parry

Time moved slowly, and all the while, Shield's breath remained steady. He had exhausted his options. He had banged his head against walls for weeks. If he wasn't prepared now, he would never be prepared. Reaching to his hip, he undid the snap that held his hand axe in place and felt its heft fall into his palm. It was a good, solid weight, but not overly cumbersome. He took a few swift swipes, feeling the balanced speed and power behind the simple weapon. Then, he let it fall to his side, though his elbow remained slightly cocked, under slight tension, ready to move and react. Mentally, he was preparing for the fight to come. In his HUD, his <<Parry>> skill activated.

It wouldn't be long now. He turned to address the member of Jacob's Ladder. "This is the big day. We've spent a lot of time and energy preparing for this, both on and off the battlefield. As a guild, we've come a long way in a short time. We may not be fighting all together in one group, but that's a good thing. We want the impacts of our good work to be as far-spread on the front lines as possible. Support your teammates by doing your job and doing it well. By doing your job well, it will give the others the freedom to relax more and do theirs." He glanced around at each of them - at @Mari who had sacrificed so much in spite of her pain, at @Calrex who had been such a staple of the front lines and a lighthearted kinsman in hard times, at @Crozeph, who had come in later than some of the others but was just as much part of the team.

Finally, he looked to @Baldur, the man with whom none of this would have been possible. Shield wasn't one for sentimental words. That was more the samurai's department, but he was appreciative for the wisdom and warmth that he always brought to the situation. It was a deficit of his that Baldur more than made up for in the guild's leadership. He brought down a heavy hand onto Baldur's shoulder. "You are all powerful, and I have faith in each of you. Now go and do good work."
