OOC: I'm not sure what you meant by medallions, since my message had no mention of it. I can only assume that is since I'm a member of the Ebonstryfe, and already allowed into such places.
6 Winter 514
Clyde had been interested to hear of the problem in lake Ravok that had occurred since his leaving. A lake monster of all things... Now though it appeared he was to be a part of the solution to said problem, which only made sense with his past services to Ravok.
He'd made quite a name for himself as a mage on his last Ravokian quest, the one to Syliras, where he had single handedly taken on a large part of a horde of yukmen. His magic in all its ferocity and power had made it possible for many of the expedition to survive. Other expeditions his work had been less reported, and had not been seen by so many people, and so was not as well known a story. Even if his later endeavors had actually been more impressive.
Now he was once more acting as a member of the Ebonstryfe, using his skills and his knowledge of things arcane, of djed workings, and would aid Ravok once more.
He'd recieved a letter directly from Aemeli, a high ranking Druvin no less, who worked within the black sun.
And so he had set out to prove his worth, armed in his skills arcane, and several products of magic. He wore his plain clothes, as he did not want to risk damaging or fighting in his finer things. But over his plainer clothes he wore a fine pair of robes with the emblem of the Ebonstryfe plainly laid upon its chest. It was a work of Magecrafting, lighter and more durable than a normal pair of robes, as strong as some armor.
In his hand he held Cha, his Magic Staff, a item that never left his side. It was a instrumental tool of his magic, a conduit for his djed, and something forged with djed by his own hand. It was nigh indestructible, with the powerful enchantment laid upon it to increase is durability. And its base form had been pretty good, being izentor crafted by an isur of some percentage. As its namesake Cha, which meant blue in the Ancient Tongue, it was blue. This had nothing to do with its enchantments, instead being its natural hue, as it was made of Vian Wood, which was a rare wood found only on Mura.
So armed and prepared for what came before him, Clyde set off across Ravok, to the place of the meeting. For a moment he felt a odd sense, similar to the one he often felt coming from deep within the scar on his chest, the mark of Chaos made by Rhysol's blood, reverberating within Cha. But the feeling passed almost as soon as it had begun, and Clyde was sure he had simply imagined it.
Clyde could not help uttering a short rhyme to himself, something he'd been doing increasingly often of late as he did magic. It simply felt... Right... And so he did it, with a small odd grin on his face.
“And so another journey begins. To stop a threat of tooth and fins.”

Clyde was not overly upset or undone by the sight of the Dhani. He supposed after one went to bed after sleeping with a woman, and awoke to find a tiger in her place, little so far as aesthetics could so startle him. With these at least he was fully awake, and had time to register and understand it, before setting at the matter at hand. Plus he had been informed of their being here before he came.
Their reptilian nature was of course different from a kelvic, but the difference between their appearance and human appearance was no less different than a kelvic shifted.
Or at least, such was the logic in Clyde's mind, whether or not said logic was true for all or even most.
It was in fact the human inhabitants that startled him more. Clyde was somewhat surprised to know he knew all the others more or less. Nolan the poisoner, Anna his cousin, and Val the Nitrozian that he had once spoke of Magecrafting with.
It did appear that perhaps Nolan knew the Dhani, or the Dhani knew him, a bit of a surprise, making him wonder how they had met or been acquainted.
His thought on such things was broken however, when their white eyed organizer appeared, the Druvin Aemeli. Clyde had not met many Druvin in his time, but certainly she was the first female one he'd met. Clyde wondered why that was, if there was perhaps a reason why men were more commonly made Druvin... Perhaps some quality men had that made them more likely to become one? Or perhaps some quality men lacked which woman did not, that thus made the men more likely... An interesting thought, one that perhaps merited some study and investigation.
As with Anna, Clyde could feel his connection to Rhysol within the Druvin, but with her it was stronger, clearly since she had more marks and thus was more strongly tied to him.
"Welcome, for those of you who do not know me, I am Aemeli, Priestess of the Black Sun. This is Acolyte Stephin Xeres, who will be acting as Chair for this meeting of our two cultures."
“You have been invited here because you have skills which we deem to be indispensable to this endeavour. By Leth's rising, it is our hope that Ravok's way of life will no longer be threatened by the mister in the depths of the lake.”
And there it was, their reason for coming, the danger in the deeps of lake Ravok, a unheard of thing in the normally peaceful place of the lake. Clyde did not doubt that Rhysol himself knew of the beast, and likely permitted it... Or perhaps simply was disinterested enough to not personally take care of it. Depending upon how he saw the monsters existence, it could mean he was duty bound to destroy it, or duty bound to not...
Next was the introductions, explaining who was whom via the acolyte.
“Yseuse is an Elder of our Dhani guests, and Celsia and Vesse are members of her family.”
“Clyde Sullins, a Mage and member of the Ebonstryfe with the added honour or being our Sahovan Representative. Annalisa Marin, also a decorated Mage, and Voiding Instructor at the highly esteemed Institute of Higher Learning. Valerius Nitrozian, a member of one of our most affluent families and Co-Owner of the Nitrozian-Moletta Sanitary Station. And, finally Nolan Parnell, poison crafter and Owner of Ino Vations.”
The acolyte paused, perhaps waiting a moment in case the Druvin wished to speak, or perhaps waiting for an indicator to continue. Clearly he was not used to acting with a Druvin looking over his shoulder.
“Now, I would invite you to share knowledge of the matter... please do not hold back; today is a day where the wealth of knowledge must be evenly distributed.”
Clyde was unsure who would speak first, and was in no great hurry to do so. But after a few moments of silence, it seemed perhaps he should step in, take the lead of sorts. Or at least get what he had to say out of the way, so that others could react to it and discuss it. At the moment he felt he had little to say about dealing with the monster, but supposed if nothing else he could give a synopsis.
“So, we are here to generate ideas upon how to deal with the monster in the lake. Clearly we are here for our varying skills and abilities, which allow varying outcomes and ideas from each of us, and to perhaps combine said abilities.”
“On my front, my magics, I'd say I would be most useful either as a Reimancer and Glypher, or as a Magecrafter.”
“We could take what would best be termed the "brute force" method. Making weapons or such to attack it, lightning bolts that could level a building in one shot, discharged from a device. Or other such magically created elements which could be carried forth and used to attack the monster. All one time use, and so a decent number of them would need to be made, assuming such would even kill the beast.”
“Alternatively with Magecrafting, if a piece or bit of the monster could be acquired, a weapon against it could be fashioned that would be its bane. Since its in the water, perhaps a harpoon or a spear or some such weapon would be best... It would be costly, but such a weapon could perhaps be made, if said piece of it could be acquired. Another brute force method. Said method would be time consuming, as such a device to be made would take days.”
“For using in tracking it, perhaps some device or compass of sorts could be enchanted that would lead us too it, point to it, though that would also require a bit of the monster. It could likely be made quicker than the aforementioned weapon, but could be useful in tracking it down.”
“As for other methods... I have spoken with Nolan here at length about poisons. Perhaps if he likewise could get a portion or piece of the monster, he could make some form of special poison that would affect the monster specifically, and not harm another. Though my knowledge of such a thing is a bit limited, so I would leave it to Nolan to further theorize on such a possibility.”
Clyde paused for a moment, pondering if he had anything else to say, before shrugging.
“Since a few of those would rely upon certain materials being acquired which I am uncertain if we have or could obtain, I will leave you all to ponder said ideas and their viability, and any modification or aid you could perhaps give in making said idea work better. Without further information that is all I can say at this time.”
