Caspian crossed his arms over his chest and shifted his feet to get comfortable. "We steal, raid and attack whoever for whatever riches they have." He used his thumb to point to himself. "As leader, I lay claim to any and all precious jewels and valuables unless I'm feeling generous." He remarked his smile turning into a smirk. "Make no mistake, The Crystal Vipers are more than just your average bandit group. I plan on making us so big that not even the crown can touch us. I'll most likely have contacts in the castle. So how does that sound to you shapeshifter? Want to join for a chance at riches, glory and power?"

Caspian smiles as he takes hold of her hand and shakes it. "Welcome to the group although, you might need to prove yourself to the others." He said before lowering his hand. "Nothing big just a few of the rough ones will try and intimidate you." He said with a casual wave of his hand.

Jay grunted, taking his mate’s hand. “I don’t know Love, but if any threats are in their words, somebody’s losing a head.” He said, clenching his free hand into a fist as fur and claws grew out on it. He was very protective of his family and his kingdom, and wouldn’t bow down to any sort of threats.

Luna lightly patted his arm. "Come let us see what they want." She said hoping this would all be okay. Luna leads Jay to the throne room and greets the Firewell nobles and guards. They were clad in the royal colors which happened to be orange, black and dark red. "Welcome to Silverwood, I trust you travel was peaceful?"
A man with dark ginger hair steps forward and speaks. "We ran into some trouble but we took care of it." He said in a rather haughty tone.
Tyler puts his hand up in defense. "I'm just saying. Shall we take a few guards as well?"

He smiled at his wife and nodded, still walking with her as they got to the throne room. When they talked to the foreign envoy, Jay’s eyes narrowed at the mention of trouble. “What are you talking about? What kind of trouble?”

Selene sighed and said," fine, but I would have you know I am one of the top mages in this kingdom so you should have a little more faith."
Lulu smiled and said," thank you Mason." She then closed her eyes causing a magic circle appear under them and quickly rise up teleporting the pair. However, they appeared about five feet in the air and upside down.

(Sure the more the merrier!)
Tyler blinked forgetting how high ranking his sister actually was. "Right right, I forget you are a pro with magic." He takes a deep breath and sighs. "If we teleport, I better have everything still attached to me!"
Mason and Lulu arrive in the throne room though they end up crashing down. He grunted and turned to look at Lulu. "Are you okay?" He questioned.
"Just bandits and lesser beings. You know how it goes." The man said before a cruel smile appeared on his lips. "However, they made the mistake of running into us. Let's just say we left them scorched on the roads." This caused a few of the others to laugh and the guards to look at each other knowingly.
(Thoughts on what their intentions might be? I have a idea but wouldn't mind hearing your thoughts. Mainly trying to get a possible plot going)

(No ideas at the moment)
Dante had found his way to the throne room, looking at the foreigners with obvious disgust as he settled in. When they described what happened to bandits, he snorted before muttering "Must you be so inexperienced as to find joy in such unimpressive kills?" He had wanted to say weak, but refrained. He studied them before speaking normally to Luna "Mother, why are they even here again?"
Post by AshLightning on Jan 12, 2019 20:10:32 GMT -5
Jay nodded slowly. He’d had encounters with the bandits and other riffraff in the past. He then heard what Dante said and turned to the young man. “Dante hush. Don’t be rude to our esteemed guess.” He said, glaring at his stepson. He then turned back to the envoy. “Please, do tell us why you’ve come.” He said respectfully.

Mason rises to his feet and clears his throat. "We should leave but I suppose we ought to wait." He remarked straightening himself up.
"I am going to keep it simple. Our esteemed and dearly beloved king Julius Winchester seeks to expand his kingdom. As you know Firewells is always growing and we need room to expand. We know Silverwood has lots of land that would be perfect for us. We need food to feed our people and metal to defend ourselves. Give up some of your land and the king promises to give you lots of money and valuables plus some of our best slaves!" The man said before waiting to see what they would say.
Luna frowned once he started talking. She glances at Jay before looking back at the man. "We do have a lot of land but some parts belongs to the peasants and to the creatures of the forest." She explained feeling worried.
Tyler smirked as he dusted himself off. "Times a wasting! Let's get going then dear sister!"

Jay glanced at Luna when she looked at him and he nodded, having the same thoughts as her. He turned back to look at the messengers. “As my wife has explained, much of the land belongs to our kingdom’s peasants and the wild creatures. Do you have any idea of which land you would like?” He himself had a few ideas of lands that were as of yet uninhabited and unexplored, but was said to have much metal and resources.

Dante snorted at Jay then scoffed at the foreigners. He then smiled approvingly at his mother when she seemed hesitant. "We shouldn't give up our land just because you firebreathers say so. Not at first anyway." He looked at Luna again. "We can't give anything to them, mother. They literally just walked in here expecting us to say yes to their arrogance."

Lulu looked at Mason and said," wait I want to see what is going on." She then pointed to a spot near his parents and slowly tried to walk over there without getting in the way to much, and failing because she was walking right between the two groups.
Selene smiled and said," The right this way baby brother." She then lead her brother to one of his many carriage.

"All we want is the large chunk near the southern border." The man said placing his hands behind his back. He glances at Dante and narrows his eyes. "I would watch your tongue boy! Be lucky we are trying to be peaceful." He growled before looking back at Luna. "You ought to control your boy!"
Luna narrowed her eyes not liking this man's tone. "That's my son your speaking to and he has every right to speak his mind." She said with a hint of a growl in her tone. "As for the land, I'm still not sure." That land was a valley that connected to a small cluster of mountain ranges. There has always been something about that area that has driven Firewell to want it so badly. She noticed Lulu and motioned to her. "Lulu what are you doing here? Come here at once!" She answered not wanting her daughter to be anywhere near these brutes.
The man narrowed his eyes even more and for a split second fire seemed to appear from his hand. He had to restrain himself but he was finding it hard to do so.
Tyler tells the stablehands to prepare the horses before climbing inside. "Nice and cozy!"

Dante glared daggers as the man dared to try and silence him. His mother beat him to any response though, and he grudgingly withheld any reaction. When he saw the flicker of fire though, he actually drew his weapon, the special metal glinting in the light. "Go ahead, firebreather. Try something. This blade can cut through dragonhide like nothing. I'd like to see what it could do to you." He wasn't necessarily looking for a fight, but he was angry that the man dared show even the tiniest amount of magic in his mother's presence, because it meant the rat wanted to use it.

“That’s enough. Everyone, stand down.” Jay said, eyes like daggers as he glared between the Firewell envoy, his eldest stepson, his stepdaughter and her protector. “Magic allowance- Zero.” He said, voice having a loud, magical echo. Something on him emitted a powerful aura, and then a ripple of anti-magic coursed out from him and surrounded the room. “I forbid any magical use in this room from this moment forth.” He said, to which the sphere resonated and all magical use in the room was immediately halted. ((It’s part of his crown, a low-level spell letting him negate magic within a certain range)). “Dante, sheath your sword. Lulu, come over here. I want to ask you something.”
Post by Smokey Feather on Jan 12, 2019 21:57:40 GMT -5
Dante ignored Jay, keeping his sword out. "It's fine where it is. Your fancy crown can't stop these fools if they pull out an actual weapon." He had calmed down a little though, so Jay could at least give him props for that, though it was only because no one could use magic now. They were all on equal ground. He simply watched as Lulu walked up, giving her a slight smile before turning back toward the people from Firewell.
Sonal bought a necklace from the market and decided to wear it home, but tucked it under the collar of her shirt in case any thief came by to steal it. She started to walk home with her guard close behind her.

~Duskheart~: Wikipedia is actually decently sourced almost all of the time.

~Duskheart~: It USED to be more sketchy. It's good for finding sources now.

Moonlight: ^ yep. It used to be a lot more unreliable than it is now.
Apr 18, 2019 11:43:40 GMT -5
Moonlight: it's not like a fandom wikia that can just be made and edited by anyone lol. There's tons of moderation. though I do agree about WebMD, there are better places for that for sure >_>

Smokey Feather: Winter Hawk misophonia is hatred of sound basically. You get at the very least highly annoyed by sounds that most don't consider annoying more of less. Chewing, tapping, breathing, etc. I'm putting it simple but it's a little more complex xD
