Mission Report

Sat, Feb 17, 2018 ((Sep 5, 2021))<br/>
Team: Lyndi (Aslene), Jane (Cael), Shiro (DragoN), Isabelica (Basil), Proud (Aunne), Kromrak (Sielic), Sylvena (Dae)

Raptor Blue readies as they travel through the Sylvanaia to Arborea. Kromrak asks for aid and Gatriel arrives. Bron is from Arborea and chooses the battlefield. The team emerges on a peninsula in the midst of a thunderstorm. Caterina and Cahgiss expected to join the Conspiracy Armada in Gevoka and they’re disoriented. The team battles the arcanist and dragon with a variety of tactics. Caterina brings in mechadead vultures. Jane crushes Caterina against a wall with a focused ”Tsunami”. Sylvena finishes her, and Caterina falls down into a stone shaft into the ocean. Cahgiss surrenders and bargains. He agrees to do no harm to followers of the Covenant of Chain Breakers and to do one good each month, for as long as Jane lives. The team says good-bye to Bronislav. Bron sends them to the Tardigrade in the midst of the battle in Gevoka. Raptor Blue helps finish the fight, which is decisively in favor of the Allies. The Allied Fleet splits up to pursue the surviving Conspiracy ships, salvage the Conspiracy wrecks in Gevoka, secure Sigil Space, and strike the Risen Valor (the mechadead factory ship). However, at Innistrad they find only orbital debris burning up. Some ships remain to investigate. Later, the team leads grounding Adinzar on Amonkhet. They start the Hekma Net as a foothold against the undead horde, and they start the Black Pyramid Conspiracy to keep Adinzar safe. Lyndi and Shiro join Cyrus and Draco inside Adinzar.

== Details ==

* Jonas McRaven (Lizarfolk tynker), Kenson Ferdinand (Tabaxi rogue), Drog and Krika Barkek (Ogre farmers), Ester Maitland (Aven monk of the Sovereign), being looked after by Res (taciturn Elf-kin ranger)
* The Tardigrade is bearing Sylvena 2 as Caterina to the space battle. Max Witkey is aboard Bronislav. The Temerity was subsumed into Seeds of Calamity and Ruby Bridges has hidden her new vessel is Ravnica space while she finishes rebuilding it. The Horochanz and Skyblue 9 are on route to the space battle (but they couldn’t jump with the Tardigrade).
* Max: Caghiss the Insatiable is an ancient Red Dragon. He has powerful natural armor and fire breath. He has immunity to charmed, frightened, poisoned, and fire. He has some arcane abilities, including Fireball and Dimension Door. His moniker comes from his appetite for meat and power. He’s Caterina’s partner, through the Githyanki alliance with Tiamat.
* Max: Caterina Berrett is a Githyanki arcanist. She was an apprentice of Nicol Bolas, who taught her expert-level necromancy. She has custom Mage Armor, making her harder to hit. She has immunity to charmed, frightened, and necrotic. She has an artifact that gives her magical regeneration. Caterina has been trying to form a grand Conspiracy, including the Fated, LRC, and Orzhov Syndicate. She wants to attract other Githyanki to follow her instead of the lich queen Vlaakith.
* Proud Flame: **At the moment (As time permits) before emergence, Proud will cast Angelic Guardian.
* Jane Irwin: Fey Crown
* Isabelica: Belica is short resting for spell slots
* Kromrak seeks aid and Gatriel and Sujo arrive
* Proud Flame sidles over and steals a Kromrak hug. Because. Good hugs.
* Max: Aborea: Larger than life, Arborea is a place of violent moods and deep affections, of whim backed by steel, and of passions that blaze brightly until they burn out. Its good-natured inhabitants are dedicated to fighting evil, but their reckless emotions sometimes break free with devastating consequences. Rage is as common and as honored as joy in Arborea. There the mountains and forests are extravagantly massive and beautiful, and every glade and stream is inhabited by nature spirits that brook no infringement. Travelers must tread lightly.
* Jane Irwin: (txt to Nails: About to engage The Bitch. Don’t you die over there. You’re the best boss slash uncle figure I ever had. Tell Brother Iron the same.
* Jane Irwin: Jane will spend some of the ten minutes concentrating on the bracelet and “feeling” the traces of Caterina.
* Jane Irwin: Jane revels in the storm for a moment, feeling the power of nature and hearing the roar of ocean. It makes her skin, her feathers, tingle with power.
* Shiro 2.0: Shiro’s glamor armor changes from it’s normal bronze gold colors to have bright streaks of black and the raptor blue symbols appear on his shoulder pads. His helmet clicks several times and stylized claw-looking bits slide into place, sharpening his appearence into an intimidating look. The cannons also gain the black streaks, though they gain teeth ornaments instead of claws. The ecosystem is ready for war.

* Shiro 2.0: There’s a shower of sparks when Cahgiss bites Brutus, scraping against the shield that hovers above the cannon’s form. It flickers and a few of the joint bolts pop loose to bounce off the dragon’s teeth, leaving Brutus heavily damaged, but it rights itself shakily and lets out a roar-like robotic sound.
* Isabelica: Belica’s hands glow as she rushes to gentle repose only to slowly realize Caterina is gone
* The Covenant of Chain Breakers is watching
* Proud Flame: Chain: “A creature like a dragon – however evil – is still a part of the world in a way we can’t fathom. And.. he knows everything. So, y’know. Why kill more than we must? ”
* Shiro 2.0: Shiro watches the dragon with a steady gaze, mostly wariness but with a great amount of curiosity. How much could an anicent dragon’s spirit power?
* No harm to the Covenant of Chainbreakers followers, one good deed per month, for Jane’s lifetime
* Mechadead vulture fell down again when Caterina died
* Vultures destroyed, down the shaft
* Bron stays in Arborea
* Proud Flame goes over and hugs the gryphon ’cause good hugs. *nod*
* Isabelica: Belica will curtsy to Bron before he leaves and gives him any healing he needs

* The Allied Armada triumphs at Gevoka, scattering the remnants of the Conspiracy Armada

* At Innistrad
* Night’s Embrace
* Meori Sunfist (she/her, Elf), Commander
* No Risen Valor. Only orbital debris, burning up

== Closure ==

* Adinzar grounded
* Hekma Net
* Ruins of Naktamun, Luxa River
* In Adinzar:
** Aedin, Relentless Understanding, and Nicol Bolas
** Draco, Cyrus, Lyndi, and Shiro
* Ruby Bridges makes a body for Perfidy
* Proud Flame: Proud, to Lyndi – will just hug her. And he’ll grin. “Every bit of this. Of /me/ – is your fault. You remember that when I’m out there making a mess. And you know what? You need me to go a-vengencing, you just tell me.”
* Sylvena: Sylvena hugs both Lyndi and Shiro, more warmly than she has been in the entire time they’ve known her, and says, “We will keep you safe. We will save you one day. I swear it to you.”
* Proud Flame: “And you know what? We got time.” He winks at Sylvie. “No worries. We’ll take eterities if we need to – but we’re better thatn /that/.”
* Sylvena: Sylvena nods. “Even if it takes a thousand years. A thousand thousand.”
* Jane Irwin: Jane sniffles mightily, and tries, poorly, to hide it. She hugs Lyndi and Shiro fiercely, and leans on Proud, staying close to him, after they leave for a while.
* Shiro 2.0: Shiro hugs them back fiercely, with nearly his full force. It would probably break the bones of lesser beings. He seems amused more than sorrowful, however, looking forward to the prospect of centuries of time to learn and improve.
* Isabelica: Belica finally is able to let Almudena flourish again, outside of the gem. It assists with New Amonkhet and the Black Pyramid Conspiracy and Almundena becomes a center of good necromancy in the universe, one of its major exports being stable incorporeal spirits that act as Belica’s agents across the universe. One day, when Belica is old and her child has returned from their acension, she passes her divinity and leaves into the multiverse with Lum, off to find her peace.
* Shiro 2.0: When Shiro is saying goodbye, he takes off his helmet and smiles toothily. He gives each of raptor blue a small orb the size of a marble that has the raptor symbol on it. Whenever it’s near something operating with Shiro’s code, it glows ever so slightly. “You’ll never be in the dark when in Sigil, I can promise you that.”
* Shiro 2.0: Chikara is spotted in several locations, most commonly on ahmonket but she seems to hitch hike and follow some if not all of the Raptors at least once. She likes to stay with Proud’s traveling party the best however, scanning the occasional advanced network with interest.
* Proud Flame: Proud is the bouncy one – always showing up wherever the group needs him (often without announcement) – it’s the RV all over again, only now it’s universal. ANd where the Raptors go – he’s never far away.
* Sylvena: Sylvena shows up at complete random, with no announcement. Half the time, it’s Sylvena 2. She never tells you.
* Kromrak 2.0: While Kromrak is away, Karmork stays aboard the Tardigrade and assists Proud and any others with their goals and missions. Kromrak assists when possible.
