Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor wiped the sweat off his brow before jumping down off the rock to kill some more Ants. “If you guys wanna chime in to help out feel free at any time. We will probably be doing this for another couple hours.”



(Alric Cantrell) This is bloods territory boy, what you doin’ here? Why you wearin’ blue? You want some die? >:C


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris chuckled at Ryoku’s words, “You guys are doing fine. I mean, you know I would help, but I was told to watch this one, here.” She said as she motioned to Orph


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell watches Ryoku slay insects for a while in deep reflection, “It seems like you’re doing a good job of it captain!” Alric lifts a small flask to his lips and takes a small sip of iced tea whilst remaining on his rock.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel scoffs as she looks toward the giant ass ants and shakes her head. “This isn’t what I signed up for…” she mutters in a low tone. Since when does a book-keeper get their hands dirty!? She sighs softly and nods. “I /suppose/ I could help out by supervising? Maybe I might poke one of the dead ants with a stick.” She sits down and slides off of the rock and heads toward the swarm of massive insects.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Make Ryoku do all the work while you sit in the sun and sip tea. Yessss.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris shook her head at the group, they really were a motley crew, weren’t they? She looked at Orph with a raised eyebrow,and silently handed over some tea without comment.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Kitah. “Why are they killing the ants?” he peeps.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris hummed, “Well, we were paid to. The ants are causing a problem for the workers around here, and none of them are trained or equipped to deal with them. So they called us.” She explained with a slight shrug, “Drink up, don’t wanna overheat out here.”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor returns panting, covered in sweat. “They seem to be pushed back to the river at least. I regret not bringing my spear.” Sighing lightly to himself.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa takes the cup of tea in both hands and looks down at it.
Orphaniel Bunansa takes a sip.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor catches a glimpse of someone running behind his team in the encampment. “Uhhh guys?”



Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Ryoku Hellvalor.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh smirks, sneaking behind the people as they suddenly seemed distracted by the man who had approached. Reaching up onto the rock an taking a mug someone left sitting and quietly slipping away.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris caught the tone of Ryoku’s voice instantly and her relaxed stance changed to alert, “What is-” She cut herself off at the soft sound of metal on stone, and turned her head slightly.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell sneezes, “Darned cats.”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh kneeling down and sipping from the mug, watching the people on the rock.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor walking over to the sound that was made, examining the cup. He looked at the others by the fire. “Either of you see who did this?”
Ryoku Hellvalor chats with Blayves.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel had only made it half way to the ants before shaking her head and turning around. “So much nope right there..” As she approaches the rock, she climbs back up onto it and sits down.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor looked towards Alric. “Did you have to tell spooky stories tonight?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) And then Orph gets carried away by ants.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh grins to himself, shaking his head, a hand patting on the rock for anything he could reach while they were distracted in the other direction now.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell questions Thursday Rye.
Alric Cantrell: Did you steal our provisions!? YOU THIEF! GUARDS!


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel: You will die!
Evie Meliel: IMPOSTER!
Evie Meliel slaps Thursday Rye.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris huffed, “Hush, use your da-nged ears.” She hissed, not liking that she had to curb her language around the child, as her ears twitched as she tried to focus on the sounds around them.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa scans the area around Kitah Lunaris.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell looks around.
Alric Cantrell questions Blayves.
Alric Cantrell disagrees with Blayves.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh rolls his eyes at everyone else’s actions, stuffing what he could into his pockets.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel: You better run!
Evie Meliel flexes her muscles for Thursday Rye.
Evie Meliel gently pats Orphaniel Bunansa.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell nods to Blayves.
Alric Cantrell disagrees with Blayves.

Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Evie Meliel.
Orphaniel Bunansa sees Evie Meliel and blushes with embarrassment.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel: Who’s kid is this?


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: Upon hearing Evie, Orphaniel looks back at Kitah.
Orphaniel Bunansa: Orphaniel has never seen Evie Meliel before.


 

Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor hands over something to Blayves.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell shows Blayves his utter disappointment.
Alric Cantrell questions Ryoku Hellvalor.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor shrugs at Alric Cantrell.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell disagrees with Ryoku Hellvalor.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell hurls something at Xavier Ruairidh.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh ponders to himself who these people were. They looked like they might be geared for combat… or hunting. But apparently they had zero sense of their surroundings. This was almost a little too easy.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) We’re a ragtag band of morons. \o/


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor catches a glimpse of white hair like his own. Standing out even in the night
Ryoku Hellvalor looks at Xavier Ruairidh in surprise.


(Alric Cantrell) Guhhhhhh, where’d he go boss?
(Orphaniel Bunansa) xD
(Xavier Ruairidh) which way did he go George? Which way did he gooooo?


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor charges over to where he spotted the imposter wondering what he was doing



Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris followed the sounds that she was just barely able to pick up, then catches Ryoku’s look of surprise, “Evie watch Orphaniel for me, Orph, sweetie, you’ll be safe with her, okay? I’m going to go help Ryoku.”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell watches Ryoku from a distance after realizing that the intruder (Not imposter) had been spotted, he readied himself for combat if need be.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Kitah Lunaris.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks back at Evie.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh he hopped back from the sudden charge, dashing backwards and cursing.

 


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor kept his knives drawn in high alert. “What are you doing here? Hey! wait theres more ants over there!”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel glances up from Orphaniel as she catches sight of Ryoku running by. Then the sounds of Kitah telling her to babysit!? WHAT THE ACTUAL ????! Now a babysitter. “I don’t get paid enough for this shit.” she mutters as she looks down at the kid. “Who are you?”


(Xavier Ruairidh) “Hey! who are… squirrel!”
(Orphaniel Bunansa) “What are you doing here– Ooooh shiny!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Evie Meliel and panics!


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel disagrees with Orphaniel Bunansa.
Evie Meliel: Why don’t you go over there and play in the dirt or something, kid?
Evie Meliel is a terrible babysitter, that is for sure.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor jumped into the ants to keep them from entering the camp


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh blinks at the sudden lack of focus on the man and backs away to a rock.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor looked back at the intruder of their camp for a moment. “You almost ran right into these things…. you might have been in a bit of trouble.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris could not believe that Ryoku and the others were focusing on ants, rather than the man that had not been here earlier, and clearly did not belong in the camp, based on lack of clothing alone. She slowly crept closer to the dark-skinned Miqo’te, “Who are you.”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh crouches down, glaring at the people suddenly in front of him, grinning and baring his fangs. “Who needs to know?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “M-my name is ‘Orphaniel’,” Orphaniel stammers to Evie.
Orphaniel performs an Eastern greeting for Evie Meliel.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell quite unsure of what he was supposed to be doing Alric turned his attention to the ones closest to him which happened to be Orphaniel and Evie.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris bared her own fangs, showing the male that she too was a Keeper of the Moon, “It’s not polite to ask a Lady her name after she’s already asked yours.” She said, voice feigning politeness, but her bared fangs promised retaliation if she was not satisfied.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel kneels down and pokes Orphaniel’s cheek, then his nose. “I’ll just call you, Orphan.” She says with a nod as she rises up, towering the small boy. “You should uh.. Build a sandcastle or something. You know, while the grown ups do grown up things.”


(Alric Cantrell) I’d do grownup things ;x
(Evie Meliel) Lol >.<


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor came up behind the other white white haired Miqo. “There’s no getting away, it might be best to make this easy on yourself.” Taking a ready stance


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Evie Meliel.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh chuckles, raising a brow at the woman. “Yet you ask while baring weapons… and they say I’m uncivilized.” glancing at the man behind him now.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell something hit Alric as he stood there watching Evie and Orphaniel interact, after Evie told him to go build a sandcastle or something Alric interjected. “Evie, what are you doing all the way out here anyway? Aren’t you supposed to be in the ki– I mean office?” Alric snickered.


(Alric Cantrell) I’m dead
(Alric Cantrell) Rest in Pepperoni Alric ;o;


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris smirked slightly, “Well, it’s only natural to be prepared, I mean, you were sneaking around, what’s a girl to think other than underhanded and dastardly things?” She said with a raised eyebrow, “And I never called you uncivilized, I merely said it was impolite to answer a question with a question. If I wanted you dead, I would have already made an attempt at your life by now.” She pointed out.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel narrows her eyes as she glares at Alric. “You’re lucky I have to babysit right now.” She glances down at the small boy before her, then back to Alric. “I will be certain to deal with you later though. Don’t you worry your precious little head on that….” She hisses.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa plays with his hair a bit awkwardly as he is given the instruction to build a sandcastle. He stands there staring at Evie, unsure of what to do.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh stands up straighter, looking around, seeing he was surrounded and shrugs “You had extra food just lying around. Was a shame to let it go to waste.”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel stares down at Orphaniel with a blank expression on her face. “What!?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows a bit of fear on his face and backs up. He looks around, trying to find sand on the ground suitable for building a sandcastle with…


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor thought to himself for a moment, how it was when he was first discovered from after his tribe was taken out. He had a bit of a thieving spree himself. “So… you’re just after some food? Well hell, all you had to do was ask. Perhaps all of us might not have given who you asked..” Crossing his arms instead, lowing his guard just slightly


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell chuckles. “I’m not scared, I’m never scared!” he then looked at Orphaniel. if you would like. I could create some water for you to build a sandcastle with. You’ll have to wait for the ice to thaw… but it’d be water.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks up at Alric in a bit of confusion, but then he nods slowly.
Orphaniel Bunansa: It is very clear that Orphaniel does not know what to take seriously.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel watches as the kid wanders around. “Come back over here!” she -barks-, demanding the child? return to her side. “Instead of building castles with sand you clearly can not build with… Why not just roll around in the dirt and give Kitah something else to do later when she’s done over there..” She smiles as kindly as possible, offering a nod. “Sounds fun, yes?”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris was reluctant to be so generous, often times her mind would travel back to her own time after the Calamity, when she had had to rely on her wits and skills to survive. And being lenient and kind to strangers stealing was not a good way to survive. But she would let Ryoku take the lead.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell clears his throat. “Stand back little one. This is going to be slightly dangerous.” Alric closed his eyes and chanted softly under his breath before releasing a burst of ice magicks.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Evie Meliel.
Orphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.
Orphaniel weeps in sorrow before Evie Meliel.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel: Now look what you did, moron!


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh snorts loudly “”Yes… because asking always works out so well. Everyone in this world is so kind and giving.” Sarcasm dripping from his words.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell: YOU WHAT!?
Alric Cantrell questions Evie Meliel.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel glares at Alric. “Go with the others. You’re doing nothing more than making my -job- with the orphan harder!”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell laughs at Evie Meliel.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel is annoyed with Alric Cantrell.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa sobs, clearly confused about the instructions given to him and seemly afraid of repercussion.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell “I’m a bit useless outside of combat anyway, so have at it.” Alric turns his attention back to the group by the rock.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Orph wasn’t crying because of Alric, but because of Evie.
(Evie Meliel) Evie is blaming anyone but herself lol
(Kitah Lunaris) Lol


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel mutters under her breath as she turns to Orphaniel. “No crying… SHHHHHHH!” She kneels down and taps the ground with her index finger. “Sit here and maybe draw in the dirt or something.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris heard what was said, as she split her attention between the group behind her and the two in front of her. She heard Orphaniel crying and honestly wanted to kill everyone around her, at the moment. She hissed under her breath and shook her head, “You two got him? Clearly I’m needed elsewhere.” She said as she glanced over at Orphaniel again, taking a step back, still facing the stranger.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor sighed some to himself before conceding to his point. “Yea I know … how that is. Nobody being generous at all. Tell you what, Feel free to share with our food and stay the night if you wish. But I’ll ask one thing…” He had a bit of a curious smirk on his face. “Happen to be proficient in any type of combat?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa wanders towards Kitah and away from Evie. It is obvious whom he would rather be around. He looks up at Kitah, and seeing her watch the others, he too watches and listens to them.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh raises an eyebrow curiously at the man, contemplating the offer a moment. “Got a bow?”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris hissed, “I swear, ask his name, Ryoku.” She grumbled under her breath before she put her daggers away and turned to Orphaniel, “Hey, hey now, no need to cry, I’m sorry I left, but I had to make sure things were safe for you.” She soothed, voice taking on a far more kind tone than before.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel rises to her feet once more and folds her arms across her chest loosely. “Huh… ” Watching as the kid moves away, she glances at Kitah. “You know… You should tend to Alric, he scared that thing enough to make it cry.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Evie is bad with kids. \o/
(Evie Meliel) HORRIBLE
(Kitah Lunaris) LOL, omg
(Xavier Ruairidh) that thing?
(Kitah Lunaris) Kitah is just like, “I… what? -_-”
(Evie Meliel) lol


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is annoyed with Evie Meliel.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor heard his asking for a bow, he walked over to the guards they had at the fire and borrowed their bow, Walking back he had nearly handed it to this man before he gave Alric a nod, almost asking him to be ready just in case. “Feel like giving us a show on some of those bugs over there?”
Ryoku Hellvalor hands over something to Xavier Ruairidh.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris stared at Evie blankly for a moment, before making a mental note to never leave a child in her care, ever again, “I’ll… do that.” She said after a moment.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell “A marksman eh?” Alric examined the Miqo’te “Well, if you intend on becoming a member of the Blood manes, you’ll need to get some clothing as well. Cant have a half naked man running around in ragged clothing and sullying our imp– imp—” Alric chuckled “Who am I kidding we don’t have a name yet!”
Alric Cantrell bursts out laughing.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel offers a nod and a forced smile. “Good.. I could hardly stand to listen to it whine and shit. Almost made me want to hurl it at the ants to feast on.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Thanalan ant adoption party \o/
(Alric Cantrell) You will be assimilated.
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Resistance is futile.
(Alric Cantrell) ONE OF THEM
(Orphaniel Bunansa) xD
(Xavier Ruairidh) antsimilated?
(Alric Cantrell) Wait, you’ll become King from Hunter x Hunter, DO IT


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh takes the bow and tosses the quiver over his shoulder, eying both the men questionably and shrugs. What’s the harm in shooting a few insects? And now that they armed him, at least he had something to fight back with.



Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor eyes him suspiciously at his hesitation


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris raised an eyebrow, “You must have been a delightful child. He’s a kid, not an animal that piddled on your favorite carpet.” She said, tone even, even as she began to pat Orphaniel’s back and shoulders soothingly.
Kitah Lunaris tries to comfort Orphaniel Bunansa.



xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh tossing the bow over his shoulder now. “Satisfied?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa twitches at being touched, but stands still. “I’m sorry…” Orphaniel says in a low, quiet voice to Kitah.
Orphaniel performs an Eastern greeting for Kitah Lunaris.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris kept an eye and ear out on what the boys were doing, but she focused on Orphaniel, “Why are you sorry? You didn’t do anything wrong, it’s okay, no need to cry.” She caught the flinch, and kept her hands to herself at that point. She could read signs.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor nodded some to him. “How would you like to keep that bow and earn a living? I was in your shoes once, I just went about earning….. or not earning money the wrong way. You want better living conditions? I can put those skills to work.”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel rolls her eyes and shakes her head. “I was and still am quite -delightful-.” She states matter-of-factly. “Orphan had a wonderful time with me, I assure you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa turns away and watches the three men. He seemed to read into it as a responsibility.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh narrows his eyes. His expression distrusting and unsure what to make of the man. “And you would hire me just like that? You know nothing of me nor I you.”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell “What better way?” Alric asked Xavier questioningly, “Shall you betray our trust, I’ll not hesitate to fell you where you stand, its honestly as simple as that.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris sighed, “Ryoku does that,” She called, “He adopts people. Like strays, often enough.” She was poking fun at Ryoku, but at the same time, was trying to get Orphaniel to relax or something, she hated it when kids didn’t act like kids, having to grow up too soon was a curse.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor smiles some at him and introduced himself. “Hey I’m Ryoku, I just kill things for a living. I guess when you look at it like that, its not so much better then stealing. But hey, my conscious is clear.”



Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell gazes upon Ryoku Hellvalor in deep reflection.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks Kitah’s way, acknowledging her words. He returns to watching the others.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh turns his head to the man with glasses. “And what if you betray my trust? Shall I offer the same and just plant an arrow between those eyes?” Looking back and Ryoku. “Well at least I know your name now…” pausing a moment. “Xavier.”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor thought to himself for a moment. “Xavier… Xav… Ahh! X!”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell narrowed his eyes as Xavier responded to him. “Think it luck that you’re standing now, instead of sneaking around looking for more food. Had Ryoku here not found you first…” Alric shook his head, “What’s done is done. Im assuming Ryoku is going to bring you in so I look forward to working with you.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris sighed once more and turned towards the males, “I’m Kitah, by the way.” She said, “And no one said you couldn’t try, should your trust be broken.” At Ryoku’s words, she sighed again, “I swear to the Twelve, Ryoku…” She grumbled as she pinched the bridge of her nose.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor hearing Kitah’s protest behind him he turned his head back, dropping his guard. “Whaaaat?”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel nods. “So this is Ryoku’s thing?” Tilting her head, she looks at Orphaniel. “Where do you find those things? I must have one!”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Evie wants an Orphaned Lalafell Minion \o/
(Alric Cantrell) so she can go tell it to play with electrical sockets?! D:<
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Probably
(Kitah Lunaris) *Dies*


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell slaps Ryoku Hellvalor.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel moves in closer to Orphaniel and knees down, again poking at his face. “Do they sell these things in Ul’dah?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) As a matter of fact, they did. /cries


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell slaps Ryoku Hellvalor.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh sighs and shrugs his shoulders. Just what the hell was he suddenly getting himself into? “Just meeting me and already changing my name.” Shaking his head. “Whatever.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris shook her head, “Nothing. Nothing at all.” She told him with a slight smirk, “And while we’re recruiting him, it’s a bad habit to let your guard down.” She said.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is annoyed with Evie Meliel.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel pokes Orphaniel Bunansa.


(Alric Cantrell) So Alric is a bit of a dick, but he means well… if you cant tell, he is super protective of the manes.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa squeals at being poked on his face and falls onto his butt.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor continues to look back at Kitah. “Huhh, What do you mean, he wouldn’t hurt me”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris “Evie, please don’t poke the child. He will grow up one day.” She didn’t mention that he’d still probably be at her hip level at best, being a Lalafell, “And yes, human trafficking can be found in Ul’dah, but I would suggest against it, as it is a crime.”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell slaps Ryoku Hellvalor.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor looking back to Xavier. “Would ya buddy, I mean there is way more food where that came from… trust me”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Alric: “You know what would be better? If Ryoku was wearing the chocobo costume. Evie would be literally choking the chicken.”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel peers up at Kitah. “You suggest I -don’t- buy one?” Lifting a brow, she glances at the boy. “So, what you’re saying is… You would rather leave a poor, helpless, little thing to the ones selling them to a possible savage beast than for someone like… Let’s say, ME! get one?”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh punches Ryoku in the arm just because it was said he wouldn’t hurt him. “Fine… food for work. Fair enough…”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris raised an eyebrow, “While he might not, being a mercenary and letting your guard down is the quickest way to die.” She pointed out, a sliver of genuine concern coloring her tone.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Kitah with an expression of disapproval at something she said.
Orphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris glanced at Evie, “Judging by the way you’re treating him, I’d say it’s be the choice between bad and more bad. But that kind of behaviour is frowned upon, and often taken care of by the Brass Blades.” She pointed out.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel shrugs. “I’ll take my chances.” She nods, as she rises to her feet again. “I want this one. I wonder how much I can get him for.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa motions angrily at Evie Meliel.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor feeling the punch on his arm he smiled more and returned the closed fist hit to his own arm. “Thats the spirit. We’ll kill some more bugs in a little bit, we’re actually getting good pay for slaughtering these pests.” He walked over to the others by the child.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel smiles at Orphaniel Bunansa.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris gave Evie a blank stare, “He’s not for sale.” She said, tone even, as she moved Orphaniel behind her slightly, “He’s under the Mane’s protection, as well as the Free Company’s protection.” She said calmly.


[The group of men walk up close to Orphaniel and Kitah, with Alric being closest to Orphaniel, looking down at him.]


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Alric Cantrell and panics!


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell looks at Orphaniel Bunansa in surprise.
Alric Cantrell plays dead for Orphaniel Bunansa.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Alric Cantrell.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel laughs. “You’d be surprised what people will sell.. If the price is right.” Her laugh fades and nothing more than a smirk is left behind as she peers down at the boy.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor had a bit of a confused look before he let them know he was not too sure what was up with the child. “That is basically Jorun’s responsibility, and I suppose now Kitah’s helping with things too.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks extremely angry with Evie and punches her as hard as he can in the stomach.
Random! You roll a 156.


(Evie Meliel) oh god poor little Lala >.<


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh walks up behind the others, looking at the group and eying the man pretending to be dead. He shrugs and walks past them, stepping on the man’s back as he walks.
Random! Xavier Ruairidh rolls a 379.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris shrugged, “I like kids.” She said evenly, “And Jorun asked me to watch over him. I take such requests seriously.”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor gave a smirking glance at Kitah as she said. “Like kids huh, will remember that.” He paused on the thought for a moment before he looked over to Evie. “What about you, fond of children much?”


Random! Evie Meliel rolls a 340.
evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel -oofs- as the child swings and nails her in the stomach. Leaning forward, she lowers onto one knee and hisses at Orphaniel. Just out of reaction, she reaches out and grabs the kid by his ear and yanks him toward herself. “If you /ever/ do anything like that again, I’ll cut you from ear to ear.” she mutters with a low growl in her throat.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Evie Meliel and panics!
Orphaniel Bunansa squeals as he is yanked by the ear.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor nods at Evie at her exchange with Orphaniel… “I’ll take that as a no”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh growls and spins around “Hey! Leave the kid alone!”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris steps forward, “Hey now, you /did/ tell a child you wanted to buy him.” She pointed out, eyes narrowed, “Let him go.” She shot a glare to Ryoku as if to tell him to step in, or she would.


(Alric Cantrell) creates a vote to ban Evie from the kitchen.
(Xavier Ruairidh) and the orphanage
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Restraining order \o/


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel shoves the kid away from herself and rises to her feet. “That I did.” She laughs softly. “I will still make an offer for him.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is pushed away and falls over, crying.


(Evie Meliel) Lol
(Evie Meliel) Evie isn’t /thaaaaaat/ bad


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell pokes Evie Meliel.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris swoops down and picks Orphaniel up, not caring at the moment that he didn’t like being touched, and just cradled the boy to her, gently shushing him and patting his hair, “Hey now, hey now, it’s okay.” She said as she bagan to sway slightly, rocking them both, just like she used to soothe her younger siblings all those years ago.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Orphaniel doesn’t even.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell questions Ninihra Nihra.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel smirks, watching Kitah’s actions. “And this is why he’s such a cry baby. Being coddled entirely too much.”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell “He is but a child,” Alric glared at Evie. “In due time yes, he shouldn’t be coddled as much, but he IS an orphan, whom has never truly known a parents love. You must take that into consideration.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris didn’t even bother to say anything to the other female, Kitah recognized the signs of trauma in someone, she’d seen them in herself enough to know. And Orph was still a child, and should have been treated as such, not like an object to be bought and sold, or treated like meat at auction.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel rolls her eyes at Alric. “Still yet… He will end up just like you. A pansy.” Evie’s just a bitch.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh walks up to Kitah and reaches in his pocket, pulling out a wrapped sweet he had… acquired… some days ago and holding it out to her and Orphaniel. He didn’t say anything but giving her a small shrug and a softer look than he had been.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell slaps Evie Meliel.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor wonders how Evie would do had the child been her own. Shrugging some to himself he drew his daggers and returned to the bugs. “These things wont kill themselves.” Giving a smirk towards the ladies which could easily be taken towards the entire group given where everyone was standing


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris blinked in confusion, but offered him a slight smile. Honestly, anyone who was nice to kids couldn’t be all that bad, though she would reserve true judgment until she actually knew a little about the male, “Thank you.” She said simply.


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell bursts out laughing.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel glances around the camp. “So.. I suppose I’m finished babysitting?”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh nods a welcome at her and looking at him, giving the kid a thumbs up and a toothy grin.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris smiled slightly, “Permanently, Evie.” She said with a shake of her head.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel smiles brightly at Kitah. “You sure? I’m available to babysit any time you need!”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh smirks, thinking the ants around here might make better babysitters.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa receives the treat from Xavier and just looks at it for the moment.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris looked at Orphaniel, “Have you had candy before?” She asked, genuinely curious, “It’s sweet.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods to Kitah. “Of course!” he peeps.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris chuckled slightly, “Sorry, honestly haven’t been told much, other than to watch you, so I didn’t know.”


Alric Lodestone FaceAlric Cantrell grumbles. “These damned insects.”


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel slowly moves toward Orphaniel and leans forward. Glancing up at Kitah, she returns her gaze to the kid. “Candy is good, yes?” She whispers while reaching out and snatching the candy.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh mutters quietly “And people wonder why I have trust issues.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Evie just stole candy from a baby.
(Evie Meliel) Evie is a bitttttch


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris looked over at him, as if to say she agreed completely, “I’ll get you some candy when we go back to the Free Company.” She promised.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa just watches as Evie steals the candy right out of his hand. He doesn’t seem to be in a position to resist or to complain.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor pouts some to himself. “I want candy too.”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh pulls out another piece of candy and holds it out to Kitah “Don’t let her get this one.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris grabbed the candy and placed it in the pocket of her pants, “We’ll give this to you later.” She told Orphaniel with a smile, “When it’s safe from candy thieves.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) What did this RP devolve into? xD
(Xavier Ruairidh) those that like kids and those who don’t and whoever wants candy
(Evie Meliel) Lol
(Xavier Ruairidh) and the mercenary group falls into inner turmoil over candy
(Xavier Ruairidh) screw money… we want to be paid in candy now


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel tilts her head. “Those candy thieves… Dangerous people, they are.” Nodding slowly, she glances at the remaining few. “I suppose I should head out to Ul’dah and find the orphanage there, buy one of these… ” She points at the kid.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa disagrees with Evie Meliel.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor smirks some at Evie. “Well now I suppose I know another way to pay Evie for her work.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel glances at Ryoku. “You could just let me take this one.”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris Kitah raised an eyebrow at them all, but shook her head, “He is not in charge of Orphaniel, I am.” She reminded


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa whispers to Kitah. “She will just sell me back to Master Atoya if she finds out…”
Orphaniel expresses his worry with Kitah Lunaris.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor laughed out loud at Evie. “Trust me I have far more I can give you at the office. Just stay out of my drawers”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris glanced at Orphaniel and shook her head, “Don’t worry, I’ve got you.” She whispered softly.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel peers down at Orphaniel. “You want to go shopping with me?” she says in a low tone, ignoring the other comments made.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Orphaniel will kick your ass.
(Evie Meliel) Lol
(Evie Meliel) Evie will cut him!


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris took a few steps back, “I think we should be returning, don’t you?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa just frowns at Evie.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor Lets hand this in, I don’t mind giving X here some of the cut to get him a taste of the spoils. I’ll uhh let you handle the hand in Kitah. You know me and money.”


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh sighs and shakes his head, giving a shrugs and a glare at Ryoku with a look that ask what the hell he was just roped into.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris the look of complete exasperation on Kitah’s face said it all, “Yeah. Money and you are not friends.” She said, completely deadpan before she looked at Orphaniel, “Ready to get out?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Ryoku: “Shopping spreeeee!” \o/
(Evie Meliel) Gonna go lala shopping
(Evie Meliel) TO ULDAH
(Evie Meliel) Got to be a lala there that wants an abusive mother
(Orphaniel Bunansa) They probably wouldn’t be a kid >_>


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is still in Kitah’s arms as he nods quietly.


evie-lodestone-faceEvie Meliel glances at the rest of the group and waves. “Going shopping now. ”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Somebody stop her by grabbing her by the tail. >:C
(Evie Meliel) Lol


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh rubbing the back of neck “Well this has been…. entertaining.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Kitah Lunaris in deep reflection.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris gently pats Orphaniel Bunansa.
Kitah Lunaris gently pats Xavier Ruairidh.


xavier-lodestone-faceXavier Ruairidh consoles Kitah Lunaris.
Xavier Ruairidh gently pats Kitah Lunaris.


[The group part ways, with Kitah, Orphaniel, and Xavier returning to the free company estate.]

Date: 2017-12-26
Location:
«Horde» free company estate

Players: Jorun Iwata, Orphaniel Bunansa, Firkmann Lalaralza


[The morning after “Jorun, Firk, and Orph: Surgery and Dinner”. Jorun enters Firk’s and Orph’s room to wake them up. He begins with Firkmann, sleeping on the Glade Canopy Bed…]


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Outta bed, you big oaf!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is not in the main part of the chamber, presumably instead inside the small bedroom.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks around. “Where did the little one sleep?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Under Firk
(Jorun Iwata) LOL


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza mumbles hearing someone beckon him as he slept. “Five more minutes,” he grumbled.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “C’mon, get up. You got work to do!”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza rolls over facing away from the awakener grumbling incoherently.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is annoyed by Firkmann Lalaralza. “Fine, you better be up by the time I’m back out. I assume the Orph slept in the small room?”


[Jorun enters the small bedroom in the corner of the private chamber to find Orphaniel.]


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is sleeping soundly like a babe.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata lightly pats Orphaniel Bunansa on the shoulder. “Rise and shine, Orph.”


[Orphaniel stirs, opens his eyes, and looks at Jorun.]


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata smiles. “Morning. How was the sleep?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa stirs a bit and sits up on the bed.
Orphaniel Bunansa just nods at Jorun, with his eyes barely open.



Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Take all the time you need. I’ve got an oaf to wake up.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Being left alone, Firk soon sat up rubbing his eyes. Now hearing Jorun waking Orphaniel. Getting out of bed as Jorun opens the door. “I’m ready for work.”


[Jorun turns around to see Firkmann standing right behind him.]


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks at Firkmann Lalaralza in shock!
Jorun Iwata: “You’re awake… Good.”
Jorun Iwata says back towards Orphs room “Come on outside when you’re ready, Orph.”
Jorun Iwata: ‘”C’mon, oaf.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Stop calling me ‘oaf’. I have a name.” Firk sulks dragging his feet.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa continues to rub his eyes as he exits the door, but immediately begins to shiver and hold his arms.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata hands Firkmann Lalaralza an apple. “Here’s breakfast. Get to cleaning this yard.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata leads Orphaniel Bunansa to the fire pit.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa follows.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza takes the apple. “Wait, yard work?” he speaks up as Jorun walks away. “I stayed here to help make the world a better place.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata glares back at Firkmann Lalaralza. “You’ll get the opportunity to prove yourself. For now, get to work.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza wallows in self-pity.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Go ahead and warm up by the fire, Orph.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) You can start by making the yard a better place
(Jorun Iwata) yeah
(Jorun Iwata) 😀


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa responds to Jorun by finding a place to sit and watching the fire. He looks back at Jorun and Firk here and there to see what will happen.



Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza starts to do some snow shoveling along the walk. Silently mumbling to himself as he worked. Smirking to himself throws a shovelful in Jorun’s direction. “Oop, sorry!” Firk said trying to contain a laugh.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata staggers before Firkmann Lalaralza.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata smirks confidently at Firkmann Lalaralza.
Jorun Iwata: “Oh, yeah?”
Jorun Iwata hurls a snowball at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza tries to duck but is pegged in the face with a snowball, falling backwards. “Oof!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata bursts out laughing at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa laughs at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Not so tough now, huh?


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza rubs his face. “That hurt…”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) “Next time I’ll put a rock in it!”
(Jorun Iwata) >;(


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’m glad it did, now back to work!”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza goes back to mumbling and working.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa watches Jorun’s face, expecting something from him.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata tosses an apple to Orphaniel Bunansa. “Catch.”


Random! Jorun Iwata rolls a 479.
Random! Orphaniel Bunansa rolls a 103.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The apple comes close to Orphaniel, but he can’t reach it, let alone catch it.
Orphaniel Bunansa: The apple thunks onto the grass. Orphaniel gets up to retrieve it.
Orphaniel Bunansa holds the apple and looks up at Jorun, clearly expecting some sort of instruction.


(Firkmann Lalaralza) Orphan goes to pick up an apple, puts out a fire. Can’t do anything right.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata hangs his head in shame. “Sorry, I’m a terrible throw. Eat up.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks down at the apple a bit and then wipes it in his shirt. He begins to take a bite, but it is clear his baby teeth are not made for a whole apple. Still, he does his best.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata giggles. “Need some help?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks down at his apple.
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa holds out his apple to Jorun in both hands.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs the apple. “Oaf, get over here!” he yells towards Firkmann.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza hears Jorun and walks over. “What is it?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Break this apple up for him with your big oaf-like hands. I dont ‘ave a knife on me.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Firkmann Lalaralza.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk takes the apple and smashes it against a wall.
(Jorun Iwata) He beter not >;(
(Orphaniel Bunansa) “Sweet Candyapple has logged out.”
(Jorun Iwata) lol
(Jorun Iwata) SMASH HER AGAINST A WALL FIRK


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza takes the apple and a knife out of his pocket. Cutting it with ease in his hand, and no cut fingers. “And… there.” He hands the now-apple-slices to Jorun neatly laying in his big palm.
Firkmann Lalaralza hands over something to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is surprised at Firks usefulness. “Go ahead and give them to Orph.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Alright. Here Orphie,” giving a smile he held his handful to Orphaniel. “Here you go, a cut apple for a banded child.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa accepts the apple slices, but he has trouble holding multiple slices at a time. So he pulls out his shirt and drops the slices into it, and returns to his seat.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks at Jorun. “Are you gonna make me do some other kind of work soon?” he asks between bites.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata “Of course not. You’re still injured. In fact, is there anything you’d like to do to help you feel better?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Like what?”

 


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is puzzled at Orphaniel Bunansa. “Hmmm… Like, anything you like doing for fun?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza listens to Orphaniel speak and Jorun’s response. Soon enough Firk wanders to the other side of the yard.
Firkmann Lalaralza spots a training dummy.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “What am I s’posed to do for fun?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata yells at Firk from across the yard. “Hey, what do kids do for fun these days?”


[Firk out-of-character is a level 9 Pugilist fighting a level 70 training dummy statue. In spite of the statue being huge and immobile, he misses his punches and kicks almost every time.]

(Jorun Iwata) wow
(Jorun Iwata) you actually have to hit it
(Jorun Iwata) stop missing
(Orphaniel Bunansa) xD

[Firk lands a hit or two.]

(Jorun Iwata) oh
(Jorun Iwata) get em
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Also, that Jorun question xD


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza flails about playing around, not fighting it seriously. “Why are you asking /me/?!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: ” I… uh.. don’t know. You grew up with siblings and such. What did you guys do for fun?”
Jorun Iwata scratches his head looking puzzled.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) “Why are you asking /me/?” “Because you’re the only other child here!”
(Jorun Iwata) lol


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza stops playing around a moment. “I threw them into trees to fetch apples. Tossed them into ponds. Usual kid stuff.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Firkmann Lalaralza.


(Firkmann Lalaralza) Firk had best childhood! \O/
(Jorun Iwata) his siblings didnt


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata shakes his head. “I dont think that’s gonna work.”

 


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa expresses his worry with Jorun Iwata.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Well, he withstood the last time I threw him into a tree. As long as the pond is deep enough Orphie would be fine.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza shrugs at Jorun Iwata.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann Lalaralza and panics!
Orphaniel Bunansa: “I can’t swim!” Orphaniel peeps.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Why dont you try teaching him a bit about whatever combat technique you’ve got going on over there?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) You’re gonna get the orphan punched
(Jorun Iwata) >.>
(Jorun Iwata) i hope not


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “/Me/?” Firk asked, “It’s just pugilism, nothing special.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk: “Me? I can’t hit the broad side of a training dummy!”
(Jorun Iwata) it’s too high level XD


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata sighs “I’m just trying to give the young Orphan something to do.”

 


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Do… do you want me to punch the wooden man?” Orphaniel stammers.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I-If you want to, just thought it would be fun.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shrugs at Jorun Iwata.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Why not bury him in snow? I used to do that as a kid.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “You sure I’m s’posed to punch the statue?”
Orphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann Lalaralza and panics!
Orphaniel Bunansa disagrees with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza looks at Orphaniel, seeing his hesitation. “You’re not going to hurt it.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’m not requiring you to punch it, just thought it would help keep your mind of everything youve been through.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “I don’ wanna punch it.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.
Jorun Iwata: “Then don’t.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa stretches.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza sighs. “You heard the kid. Snow pile it is!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa look at Firkmann Lalaralza and panics!
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Noooo!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata hands a snow ball to Orphaniel Bunansa and whispers, “Throw it at the oaf.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa receives the snowball in both hands and looks at it.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “I won’t… get in trouble?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata shakes his head. “No, it’ll be funny.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Is he going to hit me back?” Orphaniel whispers.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Maybe, but it wont hurt. Its just cold. You can hide behind me if you don’t want him to hit you back.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza holds his hand to his ear. “What are you two whispering for?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata bursts out laughing at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks down at his snowball again. He pulls his arm back far and throws with a lot of effort.

Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa expresses his worry with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: The snowball flies into Firk’s forehead landing throughout his hair. “Oh ho! A wise guy, huh.” Firk bends down scooping up snow throwing it around Orphie.

Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata sports a large grin when he see that Orph is enjoying himself.



Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza tries to dodge but it way too bulky. Being hit once more. Then bend down again for more snow and throwing it in Orph’s direction. Going to the ground quickly making a snowball pile.

 


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is hit with a snowball again.

Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata smiles.
Jorun Iwata: “Have a good day liitle guy?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “How ’bout you Firk?”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk can hit running orphan with a snowball, but not a stationary stone statue
(Orphaniel Bunansa) with his own fists
(Jorun Iwata) lol


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza lays back on the floor. “I did. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything other than work. Three years of it.” He started to doze.
Firkmann Lalaralza falls asleep beside Orphaniel Bunansa.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa listens to Firkmann before turning to Jorun.
Orphaniel Bunansa whispers to Jorun. “What’m I gonna do about my clothes?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata ponders.
Jorun Iwata: “Hmm… I guess you can leave them by the fire before you go to bed so they can dry. We’ll have to go out to get you new clothes tomorrow.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk still looks like the Krampus lurking behind me
(Firkmann Lalaralza) Must not push into fire. Must not push into fire. Must not push into… What, I’m not thinking about pushing an orphan into a fire. Don’t be silly.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza snores softly.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Firkmann, are you going to get new clothes too?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza is asleep. Therefore, doesn’t hear nor answer Orph’s question.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks at Orph. “I’m sure we can get him some too.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa begins to doze off next to the fire.


(Jorun Iwata) orph can just start falling asleep and i’ll send both of you to the bedroom

FFXIV RP Transcript | “Jorun, Firk, and Orph: Surgery and Dinner” | 2017-12-25

Date: 2017-12-25
Locations:
Shirogane, «Horde» free company estate

Players: Jorun Iwata, Orphaniel Bunansa, Firkmann Lalaralza


[After the events in Scorpion’s Crossing, the group parts ways and Jorun takes Firk and Orphaniel to Kugane by airship, and then to Shirogane by ferry. The three arive on the dock.]


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Well, here we are you two. Shirogane, home of our ragtag group of adventurers.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Jorun and shivers a bit. “Are we in the Shroud?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “No, we’re very far away from the Shroud. We’re in a far eastern Hingan Island.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You’ll be safe here.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Do you really think the kid will be safe here?” Firk spoke not really knowing the area.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata places a hand softly on Orphaniel Bunansa’s shoulder “I promise there’s nobody here that would hurt you. The only person I don’t trust on this island right now is standing to my right.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “If we are in La Noscea,” Orphaniel says in a tiny, quiet voice, “then I don’ think we are safe at all…” He gives a worried expression, and begins to hold a bruised left arm.
Orphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “We aren’t even in Eorzea, nobody could possibly know whatever troubled history you have. If any of those Brass Blades did pick up our trail, they will have to go through plenty of my men to get to you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “C’mon let me show you around, you can be the judge of how safe it is here if you don’t trust me.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods slowly.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks back at Firkmann, watching him a bit.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks at Firkmann Lalaralza ” You okay with that, big guy?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Yeah,” Firkman looks away, “I hope we weren’t tracked, but I’m not sure. I just feel off about this.”
Firkmann Lalaralza gazes upon Orphaniel Bunansa in deep reflection.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa pats at the tattered bottoms he is wearing. Old bruises cover his legs and his arms. His face appears fine, however, and his shirt looks new.
Orphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “When we arive at the estate house, I’ll make sure all your wounds are properly treated.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa performs an Eastern greeting for Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.
Jorun Iwata: “Shall we be on our way then?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I’m sure I’m just imagining it though, don’t worry.” Firk said more to himself. “As soon as I see where we are headed the better.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shrugs at Firkmann Lalaralza.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks back at Jorun expectantly.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’ll walk you through the market, you can see how friendly everyone here is.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa stops to look at all the festive decorations.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grins “Oh, you like those?”
Jorun Iwata: “Today’s the Starlight Festival.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods slowly. “I don’ get to go outside anymore. I don’ think I saw any of this since I lived in Limsa Lominsa…”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Everyone exchanges gifts and eats huge meals as friends and family.”



Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Have you always been alone? Never celebrated any holidays?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Some of my masters had decorations and lots of fancy food…”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Masters? Did you never have any family or friends to spend time with?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks a little somber and pensive as he shakes his head silently.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata saddens by hearing that. “That’s going to change very soon then, today even!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa appears stiff.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “hmm shall we continue?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa climbs the stairs one step at a time.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Need some help?”
Jorun Iwata: “I had the same issues when i was young. Wish i had had someone to help me back then.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “See? Plenty of friendly people from all over.”
Jorun Iwata points.
Jorun Iwata: “They’re from the cold reaches of Ishgard.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “People from Ishgard are nice people?” Orphaniel peeps up.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Uhh, well some of them aren’t too fond of outsiders.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa fails to understand Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Most of them can be the nicest and most helpful people around.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “C’mon, something i wanna show you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann Lalaralza and panic!


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza scoops up Orph in his brutish arms carrying him up the stairs. “Here.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata breathes in a deep breath feeling the cold air in his lungs.
Jorun Iwata: “Isn’t it beautiful?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Letting Orph down at the top of the stairs he continues on following silently.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I usually spend hours out here just fishing or meditating. It’s very tranquil.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “In the cold?!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “It’s not normally this cold here, it warms up a lot in the summer moons.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa seems to be having a hard time enjoying the view, as he holds his arms and shivers.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata slightly touches Orphaniel Bunansa’s cheek. “Oh no, you’re freezing out here. I’m sorry, i was’t even thinking. Lets go warm up inside.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa has resorted to finishing the stairs on his hands as well as his feet.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Almost there, I promise”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Getting impatient again grabs Orph partway up the stairs. Bringing him up.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “just carry him up these last ones, Firk. He’s freezing out here”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I should just toss him up there.” Firk grabbed Orph again making a motion as if he was going to throw him. “Here we go!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann Lalaralza and panics!
Orphaniel Bunansa cries out. “Noo, noooo!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata Runs toward Firkmann Lalaralza, ready to use his famous headbutt again.” Don’t you dare.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa squirms in fear, struggling to get free.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “He’s bruised and freezing. Do it and i’m turning you into the Brass Blades.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Stops and sighs, “Fine…” Sets Orph on his shoulder, “It was just a joke.” He smirked starting up the stairs with the child on his shoulder.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods, glaring at Firk.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris waves to Jorun Iwata.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa is annoyed with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris waves to Firkmann Lalaralza.
Kitah Lunaris waves to Orphaniel Bunansa.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Home, sweet home. Let’s get inside.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Here?” He kept the Orph on his shoulder walking in.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Welcome. I hope it is to your liking.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Do you like it?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa begins studying the area around him with an unusual amount of effort, as he walks about with a slight limp.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “It’s a lot nicer than the barracks,” he mused.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa kneels down a bit and looks under the seats.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You see something?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shakes his head.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks around.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I told you, nobody here that wants to hurt you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa returns to Jorun. “What do I haf’ta do?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks at very puzzled. “Wh–… You don’t have to do anything, you aren’t a slave. I’m not sure why you think i would expect anything from you, I’m the one that just wants to help you.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa scans the area around Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Are you feeling any better, do you nee something to eat?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “What is going to happen to me?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I cant force you to stay here. You can leave if you want. If you stay I promise no harm will come your way ever again.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Looks about the room finding a decorated tree, messing with branches. Soon enough almost tipping it over, grabbing it before it could, some ornaments falling to the floor. “Sorry, sorry,” he says walking from the tree, after putting them back on haphazardly.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around. “Are you going to take me to an orphanage?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata glares back at Firkmann Lalaralza angrily.
Jorun Iwata: “If that’s where you want to go. I don’t think that would be very safe for you though.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: The safest place for you is inside these walls. I told you I can protect you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “I… s’pose I should stay here. For now.” Orphaniel sighs deeply.
Orphaniel Bunansa performs an Eastern greeting for Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Thank you, Mister….?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Jorun. Just Jorun is fine. No honorific needed.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Jorun.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza sits on the chair stretching out his legs to the couch placing his dust covered boots onto the nearest cushion. Dirt falls off his boots onto the white fabric.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa performs an Eastern greeting for Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is frustrated with Firkmann Lalaralza. “Now for you, I am going to put to work. Start off by cleaning that rug!”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “What?” Firk said, noticing a pair of eyes glaring his way.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “If you wanna stay here you cant just trash the place. You’ll get three meals a day and a cot if you put in your fair share of work.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Takes his feet off the couch setting them on the floor. His hand wiping the dirt onto the floor, merely smudging a bit of it into the fabric.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You may even be offered job opportunities in the field to earn some gil.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa returns with a wet cloth and an annoyed expression, proceeding to clean the new smudge in the sofa.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I’m fine with that, but… Wouldn’t me wandering around tip off that the boy is here?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs Orphaniel Bunansa arm gently pulling him away from the stain “You’re injured, you don’t need to clean up after him!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa turns around and nods to Jorun.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You just wouldn’t be allowed to take work in Eorzea, Firk. The Brass Blades looking for the boy have no presence here.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Firk holds out his hand, “I can clean it, it is my mess.”
Firkmann Lalaralza hands over something to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza tosses the rag onto the sofa and sits onto the rag, covering the smudge. “There, all clean.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks stumped.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata disregards Firkmann Lalaralza’s childish behavior. ” So uh… I don’t think I know what to call you young one. What is your name?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Orphaniel Bunansa, Mister Jorun.”
Orphaniel Bunansa performs an Eastern greeting for Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You don’t need to be so formal, Orph– Orphaniel. That’s an odd name, how did you receive it?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Nobody knows my real name, so my first Master called me ‘Orphaniel’. They said it was a mean joke. Then, later, they started calling me by Mister Bunansa’s name too.”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “How did you get /your/ name?” Orphaniel asks sincerely.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “M-my… parents gave it to me.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Oh, right!” Orphaniel says sheepishly.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza gets up leaving the rag behind. Walking towards the fireplace.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “What is /his/ name?” Orphaniel asks looking towards Firkmann.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Hey! If you don’t want to be referred to as the names your cruel “masters” called you, we don’t have to.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “That big oaf over there I believe is called Firkmann.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “You mean ‘Orphaniel’?” Orphaniel thinks. “I dunno. I don’ know what you would call me…”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza turned slightly hearing the child ask about his name, “It’s Firkmann, Firkmann LalaRalza.” His eyes narrowed as Jorun. “I’m not an oaf.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Lalaralza?”
Orphaniel Bunansa bursts out laughing at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza cringes with pain before Orphaniel Bunansa.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “That’s a weird last name for a big oaf of a man like you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “I think it is a Lalafellin name!”
Orphaniel Bunansa laughs at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata bursts out laughing at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “It’s a family name,” he huffs.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Firkmann is a biiiiiig Lalafell!”
Orphaniel Bunansa motions joyfully to Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata can’t stop laughing. “You’re kidding me, right?! How does an oaf have a Lalafellin name?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “My godparents,” he said simply. “Quit calling me an oaf.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks amazed.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Clean the couch and I’ll consider it.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Your parents are gods?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “No, no. A godparent is a good friend of your birth parents,” he tried to explain, heading back to the couch.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firkmann was an average kid, but no one understands…


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa doesn’t appear to understand Firkmann. He looks down and lifts up his shirt, fingering at a nasty bruise on his tiny stomach.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata gasps at Orphaniel’s wounds.” I need to make sure you’re okay. Come with me.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Grabbing the rag once more he actually tries to clean the couch clumsily. “Anyway, they brought me up. As well as a Lalafell can raise a Roegadyn boy.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “That must have been an interesting childhood,” he says as he walks away
Jorun Iwata: “Sit up in the chair.”
Jorun Iwata grabs some healing items and bandages out of the container in front of him.
Jorun Iwata: “So tell me a little bit about how you got so injured,” he says as he goes to wipe some of Orphaniel’s wounds with a clean washcloth.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Master Atoya beat me really badly…” Orphaniel says with a worried expression.
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Is that who you’re running away from?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: After a bit of struggling, Orphaniel takes off his shirt.
Orphaniel Bunansa: The shirt is new, and the bruises and cuts seem really bad on his torso, arms, and back.
Orphaniel Bunansa nods.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “I was feeling really bad a lot lately, and I wasn’t feeling like I could work. I think I was sick. So I started to hide from work, but Master Atoya found out…”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is scared for Orphaniel’s health as he sees how wounded he is.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “I didn’t know you could get sick from being sad though!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “What kind of sickness was it?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “I don’ know. I was feeling weak and tired, and I was hurting sometimes…”


[It became clear that Orphaniel was suffering from depression.]


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs a bottle of clear bottle of alchohol from a med kit. “That doesn’t sound good. I assure you I’ll get you any medical help necessary.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata opens the bottle taking a small swig, and offers some to Orphaniel Bunansa. “Take a small drink of this. It’ll dull some of the pain you’re about to have as I clean and suture these wounds.”
Jorun Iwata: “Firk! Come hold his hand.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) There’s an operating table for sale right now in my Animal Crossing game. Too bad it’s in the wrong game!
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Operation: Orphan Edition!
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk says that the electronic game has the sound of crying.
(Orphaniel Bunansa) It’s the Feel Bad Game of the Year! (TM) \o/
(Jorun Iwata) You just made me drop my controller xD


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Master Atoya put me in his infirmary, and said he was going to make me work again when I got better. But I didn’t feel like I was going to get better. I thought he would kill me for sure! So I ran away as soon as I could…”
Orphaniel Bunansa weeps in sorrow before Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa takes the bottle from Jorun and looks at it.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: After a while Firk quits procrastinating on cleaning finishing the smudge off. Hearing Jorun call for him he walked over. “Alright.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Firkmann Lalaralza.
Orphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’m glad I was able to get you out of Thanalan. Who knows what your master would have done if he found you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza holds out his hand to Orphaniel with a look of sympathy.



(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk: “Here! Hugging this doll will help you feel better!” It’s a live cactuar.
(Jorun Iwata) omg


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Well if you dont want to drink any its fine, just be prepared to feel a little pain.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann’s hand and then back at Jorun. He then looks at the bottle he is holding and takes a drink. He grimaces and coughs at the taste of the liquid.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs the bottle and pours some on to the washcloth. “This is going to sting, no way around it. I dont want these cuts getting infected.” Jorun begins wiping the deeps cuts with alcohol-coated rag.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: Orphaniel hisses slightly and grimaces at the sting, but he stays as still as he can.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata continues disinfecting all the cuts. “Okay, now for the part that might hurt.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Jorun Iwata and panics!


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs the needle and thread for one wound in particular that needs to be closed up to heal properly.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa stiffens in anticipation of being pierced by a needle.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata takes another swig of the alcohol. “I promise you this will be worth it in the long run.” Jorun begins, to the best of his ability, closing the wound shut.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa jerks around a bit while Jorun is working.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Firk, try to hold him a little still, yeah?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza keeps Orph’s hand in his. As soon as Jorun asks him to keep Orph still he puts his big hand on the childs shoulder, effectively keeping him still. “Better?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods “Just one last stitch. Not so bad, right Orph? You handled the pain like a strong little Lalafell.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa breathes deeply and exhales.
Orphaniel Bunansa: He looks away from the needle and towards the workers behind the counter.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Aaand done.” Jorun ruffles Orph’s messy hair. “Good job, lil’ guy.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks down at the stitched-up wound, studying it a bit.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Can I touch it?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “NO!… No, don’t. Need to keep it clean. In fact..” Jorun grabs the bandges and covers the wound.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa touches the surface of the bandage after it has been applied.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Be careful with it.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods to Jorun.


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Do the band-aids have Batman on them?
(Jorun Iwata) I sure hope so!
(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk says no, that they have wayward hatchlings on them
(Jorun Iwata) Even better


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’ll have to do that all over again if the cut re-opens.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa ‘s stomach begins audibly growling.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata senses something amiss with Orphaniel Bunansa
Jorun Iwata: “Hungry?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: At the moment of Orph’s stomach growling Firk’s had followed suit.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “What do you like to eat?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Fish and chips!”
Orphaniel Bunansa motions joyfully to Jorun Iwata.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Lalafell.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Hmm okay, I’ll see if I can find something you’ll like. Wanna go sit at the table?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Firkmann Lalaralza and panics!


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Lalafell?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza smirks. “Joking.”
Firkmann Lalaralza laughs at Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “No food for the oaf.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Aww come on. I missed the meal before being dragged to escort him.”
Firkmann Lalaralza staggers before Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Fine, you’ll get some scraps.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shows his concern to Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa scoots carefully off the chair, trying not to stretch his torso too much.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Why don’t you find a seat by the fire? I’ll get you two some grub.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “As long as it ain’t field rations,” Firk said. “That stuff is dryer than Thanalan sand.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata wanders to the cellar to prepare the meal.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza sits at the table banging his knees on the table. “Ow!”
Firkmann Lalaralza clenches his teeth in pain.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa laughs at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata sets the platters of various foods on the table. “Dig in.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa whispers to Jorun. “Am I sitting in the right place?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You can sit in whichever seat you want.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “But only after everyone else has sat down, right?” Orphaniel whispers.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “No. Whenever you please. And you don’t need to whisper.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks amazed.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “But what if I take someone’s seat?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “These seats belong to everyone.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Firk: “I know how to keep that from happening.” *Plops Orph into a highchair*
(Jorun Iwata) Lol


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza without thought or hesitation starts eating, half-heartedly listening. “So what are you guys? Sellswords? Rogues?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “So I hope you too like the meal. There’s plenty of fresh vegetables and meats to eat, all with noodles and a warm broth.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa points toward a tray of sliced ham.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata grabs a plate and hands it to Orph. “Help yourself to as much as you want.”


(Orphaniel Bunansa) Tiny orph, big table.
(Jorun Iwata) I was going to say xD


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “We do plenty of sellswording, as long as it’s for the greater good. We look to make this world a better place, for people like young Orph here.”



Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at Jorun in curiousity.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Are you like, the leader or something?” Firk asked just before stuffing another piece of meat into his mouth.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “One of the founders. My word holds power in these halls, if thats what youre asking.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa listens quietly as he perfectly cuts his meat with a fork and a knife, both in their proper tiny fist.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Firk had been eating with just a knife the entire time.
Firkmann Lalaralza: “I suppose I can do that,” he pondered. “So, Orphie, I know very little about why I was hired to escort you. What’s your deal?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa disagrees with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I too would like to know why they sent so many Blades after you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Master Atoya won’t let me go,” Orphaniel says in a near-whisper. “I think it has somethin’ to do with the alchemist…”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “He might do anything to get me back!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “For now, he has no idea where you are, thankfully. What did the alchemist do?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa points at a baked popoto towards the center of the table.
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You want the popoto?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “You don’ know about the alchemist?” Orphaniel asks in surprise.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “No, should I?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “He /is/ the popoto,” Firk said with a smile.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Har har. Enough jokes you oaf.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “A long time ago, I lived in Limsa Lominsa,” Orphaniel begins in his tiny voice. “The alchemist kidnapped me and a lot of other orphans because he was trying to make an ‘elixir of eternal unaging’. He used the elixir on us until it worked. Then he gave us all away…”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “I think, maybe… um… that was twenty-five years ago…”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Many of my masters knew the alchemist. They want to keep me because of him, I think…”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “But the alchemist ran away and nobody knows where he is.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “S-so…. That means you don’t age?! You’re older than me!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks amazed.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “What was the alchemist like?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Was he mean to you?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa shakes his head. “I don’ think he was mean. I think I just remember being confused and scared. I think he was skinny and tall and had tan skin. But I don’ remember almost anything. I was really little. I know they said I was the littlest one there, and sometimes people called me a baby.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Why did he give you to such mean masters?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “They weren’t mean at first! Master Bunansa was quiet and a little scary, and he made me do stuff I didn’t want to do, like steal from other people. And Master Cecil was nice…”
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “But I don’ know what happened to the other orphans.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I hope they’ve found safe places to live.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Firk sat there trying to process the information, though in parts he made a face like he was puzzled. So much so he quit eating to listen.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: After a bit of retrospect, Orphaniel continued aloud. “My first masters made me beg a lot. Everyone always gave me lots of money. Then when I got smarter they made me steal from peoples’ houses and pickpocket.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “So they just used you as nothing but a slave?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Master Cecil didn’t make me do that stuff. We lived out of the city in tents and we fished and hunted and cooked and stuff!”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “But when I was taken to Ul’dah, I wasn’t allowed to go outside anymore. They taught me to dress up really nice and to behave, and they made me take care of the house and cook and play music and greet guests and stuff. Master Ingus wasn’t so bad, but Master Atoya was terrible!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Nobody will ever treat you as bad as Master Atoya did again. You’ll never be somebody’s property either. As far as I’m concerned, you’re a free man… or child?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Jorun Iwata in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “They’ll prob’ly just find me and take me away again. Maybe not to Master Atoya, but to someone else!”
Orphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Nobody’s coming here for you. You can relax, youre safe.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “They got those traffickers in Limsa and in Ul’dah that will come and take me away again.”
Orphaniel Bunansa points at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Not if I can help it.” Firk said.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa questions Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Good man, Firk!”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa disagrees vehemently with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Firkmann is probably jus’ going to bring me back to Master Atoya!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “No, no. I think the oaf has a heart or you would already be back there.”
Jorun Iwata: “He didnt have to hide you when he ran after you at Scorpion Crossing.”
Jorun Iwata: “But he did.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “He threw me into a tree!”
Orphaniel Bunansa is annoyed with Firkmann Lalaralza.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “He kept you hidden from his comrades.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Maybe he wants all of the gil for himself!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “He could have easily overpowered us both by now.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa doesn’t appear to believe Jorun.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza tries to speak for himself but, is cut off a few times. “If it was all about money I wouldn’t of came here.” Firk looks away. “When I first picked you up with my unit, I just saw a little bruised child. I tried to stomach just delivering you to Atoya.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa frowns at Firkmann.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “But… in the end I can’t do that. What would my parents think, and how would I live with myself?” He sighs. “I know you can’t readily trust me– I get that. But I would have kept my name from you if I wanted to just run off.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa ‘s frown softens towards Firkmann.
Orphaniel Bunansa looks back at Jorun for confirmation.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “See? He may be a oaf, but he means well.”
Jorun Iwata nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “I guess so…”
Orphaniel Bunansa takes a bite of steaming popoto.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Jorun, where is everyone else?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “They must be out adveturing and keeping the realm safe for little orphans like you.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa smiles, and that smile turns into a giggle.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “Mister Firkmann, are you really a Lalafell?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza goes back to eating, listening to the conversation again, poking into food with his knife and stuffing his face. “Hm?” Firk looks over with a full mouth.
Firkmann Lalaralza swallows, “No, I am a Rogadyn, but the family that raised me was Lalafell. But I’ve said that already.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa laughs at Firkmann Lalaralza.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Are you an orphan too?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I guess you can say that. I was given up at a young age– Ma said anyway,” he said recalling memories.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Why would they do that?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Firk thinks a second, “Ma said that my mother was alone with nowhere to turn. So Ma and Pa took me and raised me among their children. I didn’t know I wasn’t a Lalafell ’til I turned eight.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks amazed.
Orphaniel Bunansa gazes upon Firkmann Lalaralza in deep reflection.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You must have been bigger than the other children. Took a while to notice, huh?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: Firk looks at his food. “I was only a little taller, when I hit my head on the door jam. Ma finally told me.” He scratches his head in embarrasment.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa laughs at Firkmann Lalaralza.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Your… mother told you you you were not a Lalafell when you hit your head on the door frame!”
Orphaniel Bunansa bursts out laughing at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “It isn’t that funny. I kept getting bumps on my head.” Firk looks up. “I honestly only knew of my mother after that so I didn’t think any different. I just figured I was one of the kids.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa beams at Firkmann Lalaralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Just a much bigger one,” Firk added.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Much much bigger, you oaf.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Now that Orphie and I said our words… ‘Jorun’, was it? Mind sharing your story now?” he snorted, lightly hearing oaf again but kept smiling.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Just a normal Lalafell, not some oaf of a Lala or a mis-treated orphan. Grew up in Ul’dah, with just my mother. My father died in the Calamity. I frequently got into trouble, until I found myself working with the fine men and women in this compnay of adventurers.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza returns to eating, “Ul’dah huh? I’m originally from Limsa myself. We moved to Thanalan when I was eighteen.” Firk says still stuffing his face.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks at FIrkmann in surprise. “You were born in Limsa and moved to Ul’dah too? You /are/ following me!”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “You sure do eat a lot. Yeah, I was a bit of a street rat in Ul’dah. Grew up learning how to be a pugulist. Beat plenty of people up in back alleys. I got into some serious trouble and left for Limsa and joined up with the local rogues.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks amazed.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I wasn’t a Brass Blade back then,” Firk waves his hands infront of his face. “I was running with a guild back then. We called ourselves that anyway. We were just some dumb kids playing rogues.”
Firkmann Lalaralza: “My stomach is bigger than yours.” Firk said.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “My guild mates and I lived by a strict code and stood up for the underdog. Aye, that it is.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa listens intently.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Anyway, after a bit of trouble in the ‘guild’, I left them and became a Brass Blade. Three years of that and one Orph later and I’m here.” He finishes the last of the food on his plate.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa laughs.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I’m glad I’ve met you both. Glad to have you here. I hope you enjoyed the meal.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa nods to Jorun Iwata.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata smiles at Orphaniel Bunansa.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa performs an Eastern greeting for Jorun Iwata.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Thank you, Mister Jorun.”
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Oh!” Orphaniel exclaims. “Mister Jorun, where am I gonna sleep tonight?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “I have; thank you. It was a hundred times better than those lousy rations.” Firk said.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “I think there’s a room you might like to stay in. Shall I show you?”
Jorun Iwata: “Do you mind bunking with the little Orph for now, at least until he feels safe?”
Jorun Iwata: “Mr. Firkmann?


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Lalaralza: “Yeah, I suppose I could, I have no where else to go.” Firk said reflecting on the events of the day. “If you don’t mind though, you can call me ‘Firk’.”


[Jorun shows Firk and Orph to their room in the free company estate, where they sleep until the morning.]

2. Describe your defending action as well as the repercussions of what the attacker did to you.
3. Describe your attack or other move.
4. Roll (for effectiveness of your attack).

So it will look like this:

Random! Orphaniel rolls a 599.
Orphaniel blocks the kick.
Orphaniel strikes back.
Random! Orphaniel rolls a 700.

Random! Ryoku rolls a 100. (It is compared to the 700 before.)

Random! Orphaniel rolls a 900.

[Continues.]

I messed this up badly at first, and fixed it 2/3 through. Sorry.

[Nearby Ul’dah and The Goblet, at the Scorpion Crossing settlement in Western Thanalan…]


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris: Is anything we do necessary?


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor: All that… dragoon training came in handy though. Holding up back there Kitah?!


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: A small Lalafellin child dashes into the gates of the Thanalan settlement and quickly ducks behind a pillar. Shortly after, several Brass Blades enter the settlement.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor pants lightly from all of the slaying.


[Among others, a male Roegadyn Brass Blade named “Firkmann” runs out to the settlement, apparently looking for the child.]


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza looks around.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata notices a small child dashing around and investigates.
[Jorun finds Orphaniel hiding.]
Jorun Iwata looks Orphaniel Bunansa in the eyes. “Are you alright?”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa motions to Jorun to be silent, with an expression of distraught and fear on his face.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata closes his mouth mid-sentence.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris is quiet as she watches her commanding officer investigate the Lalafellan child, preferring to not really get involved in such things.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor takes notice of the Lalafell seeming a bit skiddish.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa looks around, seeing [the] several strangers staring straight at him.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor: “All alright there lil guy?”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata tries to calm Orphaniel Bunansa anyway he can.
Jorun Iwata: “Ryoku, quiet. Theres something amiss.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The tiny Lalafell crouches down, looking around towards the Brass Blades, and then back at Ryoku. “Shhh!” The Brass Blades are questioning a merchant in the distance.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: “Where did that short pint go?” Firkmann looks around followed by a few fellow Brass Blades. “I’ll be so dead if they found I lost him,” he said more to himself than his comrades.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa sees Firkmann looking in his direction and scoots a bit to the right, further behind the pillar.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor Crosses his arms stepping to the side of the scene keeping a watchful eye, letting his officer handle the Lalafell. He had an uneasy feel from the large one before him. He stayed ready just in case any word was given.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Looking over to a red haired Lalafell. “You there. I’m looking for a lad about your size, all blue, blonde hair.” He noticed a patch of blue along the pillar but paid it no mind when his fellows didn’t mention it. “We are of the Brass Blades, That young’n is a ward of Lord Atoya.” His voice firm but, his eyes shifting from person to person infront of him.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata motions at Orphaniel Bunansa to stay here.
Jorun Iwata: “I’m sorry, i havnt seen anyone fitting your description. Me and my free company members are just here for the cactuars.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris looked around with sharp eyes, glancing between everyone but the little Lallafel in blue, so as not to give the boy away. She crossed her arms over her chest and merely waited, standing ready.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The Brass Blades who were questioning the merchant turn about. An officer points towards Kitah and Ryoku, speaking something to his subordinates. They jog over to the group of travelers. “We are looking for a Lalafell child who has run away. We have deemed you suspicious.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata looks around and whispers, “Ryoku, Kitah, be ready you two.”


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris raised an eyebrow, not wanting to start a fight, but more than willing to finish one if Jorun gave the orders, she uncrossed her arms, “By what reasons have we been deemed as such?” She asked.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: One was a Hyur man and the other was a Lalafell, both swordsmen.
Orphaniel Bunansa: “Your glances and manner of hiding give you away,” the Hyur replied.
The Hyur continued. “It would not do to arrest you for questioning. The child is here, and to take you would be to lose him.”
Orphaniel Bunansa: The Lalafell chimes in. “Don’t be gettin’ yourselves in trouble now!”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor had a smirk creep over his face as he was growing far too tired fighting cactuars. “Most of us are fully battle-oriented mercenaries, quite skilled with our trade. I am quite bored with our mission but it seems things might be spicing up some.” He gripped his spear from behind his head and awaited any further instruction. “Fancy yourselves any talent?” He now was simply being goaded by the idle threats. He never was one to simply ignore a challenge.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Hearing his fellow officers speak to the band of travelers “I was questionin-“. He hushed himself as one of them gave him a look. With a hard gulp, he steps to the pillar slowly.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata disregards the brass blade questioning him and motions to Kitah and Ryoku to pack up the catuar needles. “These Brass Blades seem like they would go to any lengths for this child, for whtever reason that is. Let’s not let that happen.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: “We may not be much of a challenge for you, but we are paid to do our jobs. Lord Atoya will hire better if we fail.” With that, he places a hand on the hilt of his sword.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris shook her head at Ryoku. She should have known that’s what he would do in this situation, but she just shrugged a shoulder. “I don’t know about you, but we were minding our own business, merely passing through, and I don’t recall any hiding. But if you want a fight, just know: it’s doubtful you will win.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Hey there no need to draw your weapons, we’re here on official free company business.”
Jorun Iwata pulls out the order of 500 cactuar needles.
Jorun Iwata: “See? Ryoku, show them the needles.”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor loosened his grip on his spear, waiting to see if diplomacy might get them any ground.
Ryoku Hellvalor pulls out the amount of needles he had collected thus far… “I got about…. really??? Only 93?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Peering around the pillar trying to find the Lalafellin child. Now circling the pillar slowly.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor is glancing over at the big man approaching the child. His grip tightened on his spear once more, waiting to see if they would have a fight by default.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa sees Firkmann and backs around the pillar towards the open. The officer sees him and shouts. “Firkmann, get that child!”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor leaps towards the child and takes a defensive stance.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Ryoku, Kitah, on me!


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The officer continues. “Blades, take them for questioning!”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Grabbing the Lalafellin child, he quickly rushes towards the Goblet. “Don’t resist. Hold still!”


[Firkmann runs off carrying Orphaniel away while the others engage the Brass Blades.]


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Alright you two, ready to put these pesky Blades down?’


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris Kitah shook her head, “I’m always ready for a fight.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The Lalafell and Hyur Brass Blades take out their irons and attempt to arrest Jorun and Ryoku first.
Orphaniel Bunansa: Another Brass Blade comes from the opposite gate to attack Kitah, while the officer confronts Gladion.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor charges in full speed using his spear to propel himself off the ground and through the window. Landing beside the large man he used the dull side of his spear to try to knock the man out possibly with a blunt attack.
Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 606.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata readies his blade and puts on defensive stance to keep Kitah and Ryoku out of harm’s way.

Orphaniel Bunansa: The Highlander Hyur attempts to push Jorun down with sheer force.
Random! Orphaniel Bunansa rolls a 7.


Kitah Lodestone FaceKitah Lunaris frowns at the Lalafell, throwing out a simple ‘Jolt’ spell to keep him back. If she was successful with her hit after she threw the spell, she would move further back so as not to harm her allies while casting.
Random! Kitah Lunaris rolls a 223.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor challenges the Hyur with his own strength, attempting to tackle back if he was able to overpower him and get him down on the ground.

Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 922.

Random! Jorun Iwata rolls a 303.


Ryoku Lodestone Face[Ryoku was supposed to roll here, but I got confused a bit and forgot about how the system worked.]
Ryoku Hellvalor: Getting his spear caught during this maneuver showed the Hyur had some talent after all, and he got a bit spun around due to the strength difference. He saw the elbow coming for him as he dipped backwards to avoid it, his foot coming up to land a kick to the back of his head while springing backwards.
Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 751.


Orphaniel Lodestone Face[I was supposed to roll here, but I got confused a bit and forgot.]

Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 70.


[Firkmann runs back to the settlement gates to engage the fighters. Orphaniel is nowhere to be seen. Firkmann taunts the opposing side, laughing particularly hard at Jorun who is cuffed and on the ground.]


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceRandom! Orphaniel Bunansa rolls a 472.
Orphaniel Bunansa: The Midlander Hyur catches the spear and stops Ryoku’s action. “Firkmann, godsdamnit. Be worth the pay we give you and help me with this miscreant!”

Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 372.

Firkmann Lodestone FaceRandom! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 274.
Firkmann Ralza: Firk saw the blade slashing in his general direction, but unable to fully stop his momentum as he moved enough to keep his cut shallow. He hissed slightly as it connected, and stepped back to pull his sword.


Alric Lodestone FaceRenji Hyuuga Renji strolls was on his way to Horizon to meet the rest of his party at the Waking Sands when he heard a commotion during his travels just outside of Scorpion Crossing. He approached the area where the commotion had been coming from and noticed a fight between people whom he did not know. Renji, seeing a two-versus-one and having a penchant for fighting, decided he’d join the outnumbered man and attempt to help, though he know not what the skirmish was about. He crouched down with a hand on his hilt, the other hand on the sheathe of his blade. After a moment he dashed along the ground, moving with astounding speed, as he performed Hissatsu: Gyoten. Instead of using his blade, he swung the pommel of his hilt toward the back of the the larger of the two men’s head.
Random! Renji Hyuuga rolls a 331.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor: His dagger struck true into the stomach of the Midlander, stabbing moderately into his body. Not entirely life-threatening but surely something they would need to adress promptly. Ryoku turned his full attention to the large man before him.

Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 233.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa: The Midlander is moderately wounded from Ryoku’s attack and begins to turn around. “Firkmann, you have this in the bag! We will return to our posts!” The Midlander and the Highlander give Firkmann a Flame Salute and run off.
Orphaniel Bunansa: Jorun is still cuffed and on the ground.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata is left unguarded. He stands up rushing towards Firk, ready to give out another well-deserved headbutt, hoping he doesn’t get punted again.
Random! Jorun Iwata rolls a 919.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceRandom! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 800.
Random! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 903.
Firkmann Ralza: Noticing Renji running towards him, he turned towards him and moves his shield with enough time to block the incoming pommel, all the while keeping his attention on Ryoku’s charge. Firkmann lifts his foot above Ryoku’s blade and makes it hit the dirt as he brought his foot down on it.
Random! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 459.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRandom! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 325.
Ryoku Hellvalor tries to pull his hand back but gets it caught in his boot slamming down. The impact shot pain through his arm causing him to let go of his dagger, but he rolled out of the placement. Reaching over and grabbing his spear off the ground, he did his best to grip the rear of the hilt while making a firm thrust towards Firk’s chest.
Random! Ryoku Hellvalor rolls a 942.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceRandom! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 83.
Firkmann Ralza: The little Lalafell charging hit between Firk’s legs, making him stop the fight holding up his hand at them backing away. “Ow, you little!” He slumps down obviously hurting. His foot now leaving the blade in the dirt. His voice gently higher than before, “time out, oww, low blow…”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata bursts out laughing at Firkmann Ralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceRandom! Firkmann Ralza rolls a 574.
Firkmann Ralza: Firk tries to grab the spear before it struck him, still reeling from the shot to the nuts. Only enough time to pull the strong spear to his shoulder rather than square in the chest. “Argh…”


Alric Lodestone FaceRenji Hyuuga: As Renji’s pommel bounced off Firkman’s shield Renji noticed a blur of red dash passed him and nail the Roegadyn squarely in the nads. He forced himself to stop the chuckle that the comedic sight forced upon him and failed. Renji stepped back watching the Miqo’te thrust his spear at the Roegadyn. Noticing it was two versus one and the Roegadyn was in serious danger, Renji swung his blade toward the stab aiming for the wooden part of the spear, attempting to sever the head of the spear away from the handle of the spear in an attempt to save the large man in his dire situation.
Random! Renji Hyuuga rolls a 205.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor spear was stuck slightly into Firkmann when he saw the samurai making a swing to stop his own. Curious as to what was going on he sprung backwards trying to gain his bearings. “Okay, hold up… I see this is getting out of hand. Brass Blades… it will be best if you withdraw, this fight is lost.” It took much of Ryoku’s restraint to not continue the fight– since once he draws blood, it is very hard for him to stop his assault.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Firk groaned gently in pain from the Lalafell headbutt earlier as the action seemed to die down. Finally able to stand, he held his arm as soon as the spear got removed. “I’m fine with stopping this.” He tried to keep his legs from trembling as he stood. “Just give me a second…”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Sombody get these damned cuffs offa me!”


Alric Lodestone FaceRenji Hyuuga: Renji raised an eyebrow. “Brass Blades?” A frown came across his face. “We’re stopping so soon? I know not of these Brass Blades, I simply saw a fight and attempted to join the outnumbered side. I misinterpreted the situation– hence the reason I attempted to slice your spear in half, Miqo’te.” Renji sheathed his blade. “What was this all about anyway?” He asked as he looked to the shouting Lalafell who was cuffed.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Firk walked over to the complaining Lalafell, pulling out a set of keys. “Here, hold still,” he said as he grabbed the middle of the cuffs lifting, the little man with them and unlocking them at Firk’s eye level. He let the Lalafell drop as soon as the cuffs loosened.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata falls to the ground. “Gah! Th-thanks, I guess.”


Alric Lodestone FaceRenji Hyuuga continues to appear confused.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor put his own spear back onto his back while picking up his knife off the ground. “We’ll they seem to be after this Lalafell… Come to think of it… where did little guy get off to?” He shifted his attention to the samurai. “Thanks for the help back there. We were simply trying to keep someone they were after from being captured. It was obvious they could not defend themselves in the situation.”


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Firk was your name, yes? Won’t your fellow Blades punish you for this?”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor reached into his bag, grabbing an X potion and approaching Firk with it, offering it out to him. “If you find yourself in a position where you need some protection, we might offer some…” Opening one eye towards him with a smirk “For the right price.”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: Firkmann was not paying attention to the red-haired one, but he did from then on. “Give me a moment!” he shouted as he walked off towards the Goblet. He soon returned with the squirming blue-clothed Lalafell under his big, brutish arm. “I suppose they would be a little upset. But,” He paused as he looked away, dropping the blonde child nonchalantly at Firk’s feet. “This little lad gave me a re-think, methinks.”


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa hides his face in his hands.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “The little ones safe? Firk, whats going on?”


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: “I didn’t want to miss out on a fight so I put him in a tree.” Firk scratches his head.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa rises to his feet, looking about the strangers with an anxious look and studying their faces.
Orphaniel Bunansa: Bruises are visible on the tiny Lalafell’s face and limbs, though they don’t appear new.


Alric Lodestone FaceRenji Hyuuga Renji sheathed his blade and looked between the three. “I attempted only to join in a skirmish. I love to fight, and I fight for fun– which may seem to be against samurai way.” Renji chuckled. “But I assure you I meant not to harm anyone, only to sharpen my skills to be as sharp as my blade. However, I failed.”


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor approched the samurai, asking him his name before wondering what he was doing out here. But he quickly was answered. “Still helped. I’m not sure how that would have went if you didn’t mix things up with that entrance,” he said with a light pat on his shoulder followed by a smirk.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa remains silent.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “What did you and your Brass Blade buddies to this kid? Why did you hide him and not just punt and cuff him like me?!”
Jorun Iwata questions Firkmann Ralza.


Firkmann Lodestone FaceFirkmann Ralza: “I suppose that makes two of us. I was supposed to bring him to Lord Atoya to collect my pay. Then I accidently dropped him and he escaped. I gave chase and you know the rest.” Firk said still scratching, “If I don’t do it, I am fired. Or quit– not sure which…” he said trailing off.


Ryoku Lodestone FaceRyoku Hellvalor: Feeling as though he was being watched some, he took a look around– only to find his buddy from his old mercenary group. “Yo, what giiiives!”
Ryoku Hellvalor waves to Y’tahka Tia.


Orphaniel Lodestone FaceOrphaniel Bunansa slowly backs away from Firkmann, seeming to hope he doesn’t notice.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata nods to Orphaniel Bunansa.


Y_tahka Lodestone FaceY’tahka Tia nodded to Ryoku, watching the scene play out. If he had to, he would step forward and intervene. But for now, he was content to watch.


Jorun Lodestone FaceJorun Iwata: “Well, I dont think we’re gonna just let you kidnap an innocent child.”
