Clyde and Xii keep busy as an outpost is built.

While Sylira is by far the most civilized region of Mizahar, countless surprises and encounters await the traveler in its rural wilderness. Called the Wildlands, Syliran's wilderness is comprised of gradual rolling hills in the south that become deep wilderness in the north. Ruins abound throughout the wildlands, and only the well-marked roads are safe.

A Rock in a Soft place[Xii]

Clyde's general job entailed keeping the base of operations safe in case of any great threat. Currently that was the sight of the main construction, holes being dug, trees being felled and cut, walls going up around the selected area for the outpost.

However day to day there weren't that many threats to the base. They were far enough from most cities to not be in danger of running into other people, let alone bandits who preyed upon trade routes. They were far enough from the bogs and marsh that more Vinumia were unlikely.

Hunters kept most of the predators at bay, and serving as food. There weren't that many threats to face, which meant Clyde had a good bit of free time in general unless he was called upon.

On this particular day Clyde was a bit up the coast, away from the base and out of its sight, on a "scouting mission." This basically involved Clyde wandering about a bit away from the base, checking for any approaching threat.

But since there were other guards on watch and out scouting, this ended up more as Clyde going for a walk.

He'd invited Xii along for his jaunt, as they made their way along the beaches which in this area were a length of coast covered in a multitude of small rocks, pebble beaches as some called them. Though they weren't technically pebble sized, most were big enough fill ones hand, and an occasional one was a bit bigger. All of the smaller ones close to the shore were smooth and rounded by the wash of water onto the coast.

In some places it was less of a pebble beach, and more of a small boulder beach.

As he walked along, occasionally Clyde would pick up a rock, look it over, and dissatisfied with some quality of the stone toss it along the coast bouncing a few times before coming to a rest.

“Alright Xii, we're looking for some good rocks. Solid, good sized, about the size of my fist or so. Oh, and also looking out for trouble, scouting and such. But first rocks.”

I am actually in RL a super intelligent hamster from Rhode Island, with a 7 year plan to take over the world.

Update 6/2/18- 1:10AM EST: His 7 year plan a success, and several weeks ahead of schedule, Clyde leaves to oversee the world he has taken over.

No new threads after end of Spring 518-Will still be checking for PM's occasionally, but focusing on a new character.

Graders note: :
Please be aware Clyde is a master Magecrafter. He therefore should not be gaining full xp(or possibly shouldn't gain any at all) for simple tasks related to this magic, such as low level MC items, particularly for repetitions of creations he has done before. Feel free to contact me if unsure of a instance of his magic use compared to his skill level.
