The land they were in was formless and barren but this served only to remind the eye that it was not their home. Behind them was the plateau, before them the vast open desert and before them the distant mountain range.

They took a little care in being stealthy, knowing that time was against them. Nevertheless they still took care not to silhouette themselves against the night sky giving way to a murky dawn.

Although they arrived together there were no firm bonds except the loosest of agreements and a vow not to break the common-code.

It was more a way of life for factions such as these, indeed back on the world of Terra there was much to left to explore and plentiful areas to still spread out to.

Watcher Owesion was the leader of his group, The Soliters; kindred to the Aesir and Vanir. Owesion was Way-Captain for the mission and one who commanded over the other two groups as well.

He cast oceanic eyes at the two other tribes on both sides of him.

On his right were his kindred-cousins - The Vril, those that descended from the Aesir ancients. With the Unity War being long since over and there had recently been a lasting peace forged between they and the Soliters being of their kindred the Vanir.

Unfortunately for me I can't limit it to one forum, the internet forums as a whole are a small drop in the ocean as it is without exclusively going onto on forum alas. :plane:

Chapter 4

[size=150]The tunnel led out to another widened chamber. This one was larger at around two hundred and fifty feet long. There were deeper deep shadows and several thick towering pillars. About halfway inside there was a raised section causing them to gaze upwards at the splendor within.

They were still at the bottleneck point and Ghone wisely stopped to take in the area.

There were illumination points of blue flame again here, clearly some crude and proto-form of Vril-ya, for only that could burn for ages and ages without extinguishing. The steps led to a larger monolith pillar that stretched up to the lofty cavern ceiling. There at the pillars base was another of the sacred orbs.

All that power, only a short distance away.
