Ancient Secrets Call (Open)

Post by Rihzome on Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:04 am

Wheeling through the sky, so far above he must have looked like a dot to any one on the ground, Rihzome had a broad smile on his maw. In the last few months, a combination of sandstorms, illness and a twisted ankle had kept him firmly grounded in the twilight palace, but finally, none of those could stop him. Letting out a roar that quickly faded to nothing in the largely empty sky, he seemed almost as joyous as a hatchling. Spiralling around, letting himself by carried by winds and the occasional loop-de-loop, the large, black scaled dragon cut through the air far more easily than a creature his size should have.

And what, pray tell, had him in such a good mood? Adventure, of course! He had finally deciphered the location of an ancient temple, around from the dawn of the Ki'Sha, if not predating it, built by a race, a civilisation, long since wiped from the face of the earth. What waited to be found? Ancient magic? Artefacts? Texts? Any of the three would be a treasure in its own right, and the thought of finding even a single one sent shivers of anticipation up his spine.

Curling downwards after a few hours, the sun nearing its zenith, he landed softly on the shore of a large oasis, one of the largest in the Muh'az desert, and cast his gaze about. It was one of the most frequented as well, due to the large size of the oasis, and the density of plants and animals that lived close. Hmmm. Rest here for the day, and continue on this evening…  He mused to himself, glancing around, finding a rather nice spot between two large trees, which would block out most of the sun's rays during the latter afternoon. Setting down, he pulled out journal and a pencil from a satchel that had been tightly bound to his side (to stop the loss of anything in his flighty antics), and jotted down a few details about the place he was staying, before closing the book and tucking it safely back away. Stretching his wings, he glanced upwards at the sun bleached sky, before diving into the surprisingly deep and clear oasis, content to spend a few hours, if not more, in the warmed water.

Slicing through the air, Vortex was not happy, nor was he upset in any way. He was simply calm... And a little bit bored. There were still plenty of things he had to learn and find out about his new home in the Ectan Mountains, and his neighbors, but he being himself, was apt to disappear every now and then. He wasn't lost, but he sure had no clue as to where he was going. He continued and a level pace, about what one would expect of him.

The masked dragon's mind was scattered at the moment, as it commonly was. He couldn't shake the feeling that there were more of his kind out there, and yet he couldn't shake the feeling that he was the last of his kind. The thoughts had been troubling him for the past couple days, and he was becoming desperate for an answer, thus being his primary reason to commit to the isolation of the sky.

He had been flying over the ocean for quite some time, and, was a bit sore to begin with. Land was not so difficult to spot, and in a quick dive, he skidded to a halt on his paws, barely making a sound. It was a rather large oasis, probably somewhere in Verula. Taking a glance around, spotted a much larger black dragon in the water, unidentifiable from Vortex's angle. If He did know this dragon, it certainly wasn't identifiable due to the water covering most of their features, as well as the fact that he was behind them. Not knowing if it were hostile or not, he moved a little closer, staying still as he contemplated getting it's attention.

With his eyes closed, and his belly towards the sky, Rihzome floated, quite peacefully, on his back, wings spread widely to either side, as he enjoyed the sun. He didn’t like that warmth, not at all… but it was almost enjoyable with a cool pool to soak in. Not as good as a hot spring in the depths of a Ectan winter… but pretty close. Drifting in an area between sleep and waking, it was trivial for the black dragon to sense the approaching being. Normally others were easy enough to see when he looked, but this individual… well. He didn’t seem to be thinking… clearly. It was like a large, dark blotch on a white background, easy to see, even without looking for it. Cracking open a single eye, he watched approaching dragon for a minute or so, as he drew nearer, before he dived down, out of his line of sight, more than likely landing at the edge of the oasis. He hadn’t been able to discern much, but he seemed to have… something metallic on his head, that had been glinting in the sunlight, and smaller than himself, how small was hard to tell. Might have been ¾ his size, might have been a ¼, but he was smaller.

Relaxing for several more long minutes, in which he heard no shuffling, nor any splashes, he called out without moving. “I do know you’re there.” Stretching his wings out a little further, he simply enjoyed the water. “It’s a bit warm, to be honest, but it’s quite a nice reprieve from the sand. Feel free to join me.” He added, lifting his right paw to show the silver and sapphire anklet, just in case this dragon was from the Stormcallers, or knew what the silver and blue piece of appeal meant.

A small smile lit up on Vortex's maw as he heard the response to his presence. He did not know what the silver and blue anklet meant, so he mostly ignored it. He didn't know either if the other black dragon was hostile, but it gave off the impression that it wasn't. His tail flicked back and fourth a few times as he thought for a moment, slowly padding forwards and into the water. He wasn't surprised by how warm the water was, and simply kept still, floating atop the surface. His mind wasn't any clearer, if anything, it was more scattered. Without any splash, he dove beneath the surface of the water, the warm liquid coating his scales. Surfacing quickly, he looked over at the larger dragon, water dripping off of his mask. "And how did you know that?" He asked, genuinely curious. "Either way, thank you."

Letting out a low, and slightly amused chuckle, Rihzome replied, not completely truthfully. “I was just lazing about here, and I saw you off in the distance, before you dived. I just naturally assumed you landed quite near here, and judging by the fact that you didn’t enter the water or go hunt or something of the ilk, I simply guessed that you were… watching. More than likely sizing me up as a possible threat. I can’t blame you of course, perfectly logical thing to do. Can’t be sure of anyone out here, this close to Ki’Sha borders.” He muttered the last part, as he continued to float and enjoy the water. “Of course, I have no guarantee that you aren’t Ki’Sha, with scale colour like that. So tell me, what brings a dragon of your… colouration out this far? Black isn’t exactly the best colour for surviving in the middle of a sundrenched wasteland.”

Nodding a bit nonchalantly, Vortex was still a bit suspicious, but brushed off the feeling. It was a natural instinct of his to be cautious of larger dragons. "Ah, I see. Well, I am not Ki'Sha, if that is what you are asking. I don't belong to any tribe." He answered calmly, not motivated to move from his spot. "I, well, I was a bit lost in thought, and flying usually helps me clear my mind..." He trailed off, shaking his head a little bit in attempt to shake the excess water off. The sunlight was nice and warm against his scales, but he preferred colder temperatures. "No, black is not the best colour for surviving out in the desert, but I do enjoy how peaceful it is. Also, if you don't mind me asking, what brings you out here?"

That, however, was question Rihzome had no trouble answering truthfully. “An adventure.” He stated simply, at first, before smiling up towards the sky. “My job is to study, catalogue and preserve the ancient world, be it in artefacts, writings or spells. And that, my friend, is why I am out here. I recently got my hands on a rather old scroll, which documents the location of a temple somewhere out in the desert, near a place cheerfully called Death’s Maze, which predates even the Ki’Sha.” He sounded extremely excited, like a child on their hatchday.

The afternoon sun finally getting to the black scaled male, he rolled himself over in the water, pushing himself to standing as his paws touched the bottom. Careful to move slow, as to not startle the smaller dragon, he unfurled his large wings and lightly beat them, sending waves and droplets of water across the surface of the water. As he did this, he finally got his first good look at his… companion. Simple black scales, 40, maybe 45 feet tall, and wearing an odd, metal mask. Raising an eye-ridge, it quickly lowered. Probably some facial injury… poor thing. And he doesn’t look half bad. He mused. Slowly making his way towards the shore, he shook his paws off, quickly stepping across the hot sand, and flopping into the shade, where he had left his satchel, still watching Vortex, just quietly watching his movements and body language, as if trying to already memorise the small dragon.

Vortex couldn't help but think he had heard the name Death's Maze before, so he kept it in the back of his mind. Shifting a little in the water, the masked dragon stayed completely still for the moment. He watched the larger dragon exit, keeping a watchful eye on them. They were much larger than he was, and had little nicks along his nearly identical black scales. He noticed the raised eye ridge, most likely because of  his mask. It was quite common for others to wonder about his mask upon first glance, and he didn't blame them for it. "Sounds like fun." He chuckled lightly, moving towards the shore a little bit after Rihzome did. Pulling himself up, he let the water drip off of him, instead of shaking it off. Personally, he wished he had something adventurous to do, but didn't say anything. Nothing stopped him from approaching the shade and sitting on his haunches, minding the larger dragon. "It isn't every day you come across something like that."

A quick judge of character, in most cases a good one as well, Rihzome determined that this dragon didn't seem all too dangerous… and even if he was hiding it, the fact that he was closing in in half his size would make any conflict quickly resolvable. Shuffling sideways a little, he offered a spot of shaded and vegetation covered ground to Vortex. "It's a far cry better than sitting on sand." He chuckled. "As for fun… Well. If you think it is, feel free to join me. Another set of paws wouldn't go astray on something like this, and you will be handsomely rewarded upon our return to the Twilight palace." He told the black dragon, smiling warmly.

"It really isn't is it? I will admit though, I've had the scroll that tells of the location of this temple for… ohhh… 100 years now? Of course, something this old wasn't just written in a known language. Some now dead dialect I believe was called Holder… Keeper… Something that involves taking something and looking after it. Translations without at least a few sources to cross-check are sketchy at best, and as far as I could find, it was the only viable scroll I had. I mean, I only found the location of the temple. There was still a solid several hundred words on it." Rihzome shared with the other dragon, before glancing up. "I don't believe we ever exchanged names. How rude of my… My name is Rihzome, Scholar of the Stormcallers. A pleasure to meet you…?"

Smiling a little more, Vortex shifted over onto the vegetation next to Rihzome, silently agreeing that it was better than sitting on the sand. "I'd be delighted to join you." He replied, his eyes flicking from the other dragon to the sky. He did not care for reward, as it would have little to no meaning to a rogue like him. Twilight Palace... It sounded familiar.


It took quite a bit of willpower not to react upon hearing the term Keeper be used in such a context. He almost blurted out a question, but stayed silent for the moment. He knew Keeper better than he did Universal, and the language tied directly to the Kor-Maroth; his species. The very reminder of them set his mind racing, his original thought process coming back to mind. Maybe, just maybe, He thought, I could find an answer. If there were really more out there, and he hoped there were, that he could find some sort of indicator at this temple. Snapping back to reality as he realized he had been so lost in thought, his tail snaked around himself, running over his forepaws as he tried to act like nothing was wrong. "I'm Vortex."

With a smile on his maw, Rihzome curled up, resting as the heat slowly grew, his energy leeching from him. "And I'd be just as delighted to have you join me, Vortex." He replied with a smile, and oddly enough, a yawn. "Terribly sorry, but the warmth… well. It always makes me a little tired." He admitted, glancing up at the sky. "I plan to set off shortly before the sun sets, and make my way to the Maze tonight, seeing as I know roughly where it is already. Would that be agreeable with you?" He asked, knowing that some were… unused to the cold temperatures the desert could reach under the cover of darkness, which, for one like himself, was little more than comfortable. "And... if this temperature isn't to your liking, I could lower it a few degrees... only if you would be okay with that, of course."

Spending a few more minutes curled, the larger dragon eventually rolled onto his back, stretching out and going limp, rubbing his back against the ground. "So… have you eaten lately Vortex?" He asked, knowing how easy it was to miss meals when so deeply lost in thoughts.

Shrugging a little, his shoulders rising and falling, Vortex looked over at Rihzome. "That's a good time for me; I already slept a few hours ago." He said affirmatively, noticing the yawn that escaped the larger dragon. He knew the temperatures that the desert nights could drop to, and was perfectly okay with them. "The temperature is fine by me." He couldn't flush the thought that of this temple was only a hundered or so years old, perhaps there were more, hiding somewhere; only time would tell. The heat was a tad bothersome, but nothing unbearable.

Watching Rihzome roll over, he contemplated it himself, his tail uncurling and flicking back and fourth. "I've eaten lately for my standards." He replied with a chuckle. "Which, if you need to know, is last night." He spoke truthfully, as he wasn't usually hungry except at night.

Shaking his head, Rihzome tutted. “Last night? That simply won’t do!” He replied, as he picked up his satchel, the bag easily large enough to fit… well, anything really. Rummaging through it, he pulled out a large, greaseproof parcel, setting it in front of the smaller male, as close as he could reach without getting up, but not so close as that he was up in his face. “Roasted lamb with thyme and rosemary.” He told him, gesturing to the parcel. “Feel free to eat as much as you want. Not like I don’t have more than enough in here…” He chuckled.

Leaning back down again, Rihzome reached once more into the satchel, pulling out a leather-bound journal and a quill, probably from some feathered species of dragon, that the only logical thing that could produce a feather large enough for him to hold properly. Putting pen to paper, he glanced every now and then over at Vortex, as he seemed to write, every now and then pausing, and seeming to sketch something instead. “You asked me earlier how I knew you were there. Telepathy.” He answered simply, without looking up from whatever he was working on. “But I didn’t technically lie. I did see you flying overhead and landing, and that was the reason I assumed you were waiting off on the shore.”

Sighing quietly, Vortex bent his neck down and took a whiff of the parcel. It smelled exactly like what Rihzome had described, lamb with thyme and rosemary. He wasn't particularly hungry at the moment, but figured it would be rude to reject the offer, so, carefully removing the exterior packaging, He picked up the edge of the large slice of meat and took a bite, savouring the taste. It had a bit more rosemary than he would have liked, but he didn't complain. Taking a few more bites, he finished chewing before responding, "Thank you."

Glancing between his food and Rihzome, Vortex noticed the dragon writing something. He didn't care much what it was about, he wasn't too nosy... sometimes. Nodding as he listened to the explanation, it made a bit more sense than before. They were a Telepath. Vortex himself was a partial Telepath, and had met a few before. Most of them were a bit more... Stand-offish than this one though.

Flashing Vortex a smile, Rihzome inclined his head. "That fact that you're eating it is thanks enough. I enjoy cooking it just as much as I enjoy knowing someone is eating it, and possibly enjoying it." He replied, before returning to his journal. "I mean, it's useful and all, telepathy, but honestly, it's kind of a pain sometimes. Always knowing where people are, the scattered thoughts that make their way to you, feeling how others are feeling… Out here, largely alone, it's bearable. But even in the Twilight Palace, it's sometimes painful. Figuratively, of course. Not physically or mentally." He prattled on, having a tendency to simply… speak to those who would listen.

Blinking, as if surprised, Rihzome looked up from his journal, at Vortex, and then back to the journal, holding it up as if to compare something. "Good enough." He shrugged, closing it and placing it back in the satchel. "You never told me much about yourself, Vortex. Surely you must have something you don't mind sharing? A story to pass the time mayhap?"

Taking one more bite of his food, Vortex finished and then placed the meat back in the opened packaging, leaving it there. Listening to Rihzome, he nodded slowly in understanding. He thought again to his species, only thinking for a moment as he looked up at the sky. There wasn't much special about it now, but he knew what lied behind, the secrets that must be kept past death.

Sighing a little, Vortex shrugged. "There really hasn't been much in my life worth documenting." He lied, hoping that he wouldn't be forced to reveal his identity. "I mean, there's the occasional adventure or whatnot here and there, but regardless, nobody ever listens. They all seem wrapped up in their own problems, always running back and fourth." He paused, seemingly thinking for a moment. "My thoughts aside, there isn't much. I mean, everyone has their own story, but I, well..." Trailing off, he tried to think of anything to say but came up blank. "Never mind. I'm not fond of talking about it." He looked away, a bit embarrassed and a bit saddened, as his past always left him. Snapping back to reality, he looked back at Rihzome. "Sorry, I'm just not the most interesting of those you may meet."

The sound of flapping wings could be heard in the distance until eventually a lone figure was still drawing closer until it is reveal to be a wyvern of a fair size, just another rogue among the wild.

Koal has been flying for a good while trying to seek out things to do with his life, so far his efforts have ended up as being dull, but of course, anything can be dull when you effort the more populated areas, Koal is after all an outsider and thus has always had trouble trusting dragons he had just met.

The old wyvern spots the Oasis, the very sight of water reminded him that he hasn't had good drink in a long while. Tilting his body and wings a bit, he makes for a landing near the edge, soon landing with a loud thud due to his body's size, he hasn't noticed the two other dragons yet.

Rihzome watched closely, a small, saddened smile on his maw as he shook his head. “Vortex… If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in all my years of examining and exploring ruins, is that the more unassuming and less interesting something appears at first glance, the bigger secret and surprise it holds.” He replied, reclining and resting lightly against the trees behind him. “Regardless, I will not pry. If you don’t wish to speak about your past, so be it. I know the pain unwanted and scarring memories can bring…” He finished softly, his gaze drawn towards the sky.

He head sensed the newcomer far before he could be heard, his mind a bright point slowly moving closer. “It seems we have someone joining us…” Rihzome murmured, to no-one in particular, before lifting his head to smile at Vortex. “It seems we have a newcomer joining us…” He told him, as he relaxed further, not wanting to seem hostile or aggressive towards the other male. Lounging around and watching the wyvern as he landed, his black scales blending into the shade, he called out, in a friendly tone. “Hello there, Wyvern!”

Re: Ancient Secrets Call (Open)

Post by Caramina on Sat Apr 08, 2017 8:57 pm

Caramina had a soft green scarf, the colour of which matching those of her eyes and the mane that ran down her spine and tail, wrapped around her neck, and it flapped in the wind as Caramina's wings rose and dipped in repetitive motions, propelling her forward. It was slightly colder than usual today in the Stormcaller lands, and while Caramina loved the cold, her body did not; going without a scarf today would definitely result in her catching a cold. She'd made up her mind to enjoy the cool fresh air today, instead of being tucked in the corner of a library, flipping through the age-yellowed pages of old dusty books; and now she was headed out to rogue lands - because she was also hoping to meet a new dragon -, the subtle shifts in the appearance of the land that stretched out below her hinting at the change of territories. It went from smooth, even and scattered with buildings and dragon-grown plants to sloping, uneven lands, the number of structures slowly dwindling to zero, rocks taking their place. It also grew hotter, and Caramina huffed angrily at herself for not foreseeing this. I should've known... Idiot, idiot.

Moving shapes, in the shadow of a large tree, caught her attention. As she tilted her wings and started to descend, her third eyelid - transparent and thin, but keeping away the wind that would've caused her eyes to water by now - slipped down over her narrowed green eyes, which was focused onto the dragons in the shade. She recognised Rihzome, and a delighted smile slid across her face. There was another black dragon with Rihzome, and a red wyvern. They were all standing near an oasis, a clear blue circle of shimmering blue liquid, small ripples crossing across its mirror-like surface as the wyvern began to drink. Clearly he had not noticed the others yet. She angled her wings and shifted direction, beginning to spiral down in circles and eventually landing right next to Rihzome. She brushed her wings lightly against his in greetings, and offered the masked dragon a smile.

Vortex stiffened for a second as he understood what Rihzome had said. It was indeed, very true, as there was a bit more than a facial wound hidden beneath his mask. "Perhaps." Noticing the newcomer, he turned his head to the red wyvern, making a small nod in greeting, hoping not to appear hostile. The wyvern was around the same size as he was, and was covered in red scales.

The masked dragon did not notice Caramina at first, but did quickly after she landed. Smiling in return to their greeting, he silently pondered if the others were with Rihzome or not. He determined it was probably a coincidence, but waited to say anything.

Koal's head raise when someone spoke to him, he was slightly startled, but what drew his attention the most was the arrival of a white scaled dragoness.

"Well, this is quite unexpected.." Koal whispered to himself at the sudden increase in dragons, perhaps he was more tired than he though. Taking a look around, he made a mental count of the dragons so far. A white one with wild green hair, a black dragon, another black dragon although more of a Midnight.

There is no response at first as Koal resumes drinking from the oasis. Once his throat is nicely perched, he turned around to give them their attention.. So far, no hosilitiy, but it'd be best to be on the caution.

"Forgive me for not noticing you three earlier." Koal said with a slight head bow.

It was a surprise of the most welcome kind to Rihzome when he sensed an all too familiar mind closing in, his gaze drawn towards the sky to search for her. A smile breaking on his maw as he saw that familiar silver form, and that odd yet beautiful green mane, he waited patiently, watching her spiral down towards him, landing gracefully next to him, as usual. "Hey Cara…" He greeted her, wrapping a wing over her and pulling her close, in his own greeting, giving her a fond nuzzle and a smile. "Whatcha doing out here sis?" He asked, gazing around the trees, and beyond, to the desolate wilderness. "I don't mean to pry of course… just seems a little unusual…" Happy to see her regardless, he couldn't help but smile wider and let out a chuckle. "I can take that if you want, and keep it safe for a while." He told her, gesturing to the scarf that adorned her neck with a paw. "Not exactly the best attire… but I think you knew that already. Did someone forget?" He teased, before suddenly switching to a much more serious demeanour. "Sorry if that sounded, you know, rude or anything…" he added, unused to the idea of having a sibling, unsure if that little tease was rude of just a sibling jab.

Rushing to cover up his rudeness, he turned to Vortex. "Um… Caramina, this is Vortex, Vortex, Caramina." He introduced them, acting as if Vortex was a long-time friend of his, before turning his attention to the red scaled wyvern, a small, warm and friendly small on his maw. Inclining his head, he replied, "There's no reason for such formality my friend. We're all equals out here." Lifting his head, he continued. "My name is Rihzome… May I ask your own, Wyvern?"

Lifting her head above its normal position, Silhouette caught a whiff of her beloved and a friend of hers as well. Scales as black as the night almost shimmered, were it not for the fact that she was ebony black. Opening her dark wings, with the silvery flaps of skin...Silhouette pushed off the ground and beat her wings a bit to get a proper altitude. Once there, she began her trek to find out what is going on. Releasing a strong screech, she hoped it would reach Rihzome's ears...if it did,
that would be great...though, she would not know unless she heard his melodious calls. Her heart raced at the thought. There were others with him, and this excited her. Doing a spin, like a spinner dolphin, she moved swiftly towards the smell. The shadowy wyvern was still releasing her unusual screech, now out of joy rather than searching. Ah, the clouds can release a beautiful bliss inside a dragon's body. Can't it?

[Sil, you need to get your character approved before you can rp, but I won't delete your post. Keep it there; we'll all wait for you until your app is approved.

However, if anyone in this rp doesn't want to wait, you'll have to delete your post and re-send it later on when Silhouette is approved.]
