Shiba was moving swiftly across the fields on her horse, she did not speak much to her daughter. It was going to take them a while to get over to the desert from this arear.

Lily stopped suddenly. Feeling that something really didn't feel right. It had been bugging her for a long time and now she could point out on what it was. It was the precense of Geoffrey.
The undead wolf marched through. Slowly it moved towards his mistress. It Blue eyes looked loyally at her.
"So what has he done to you? Poor Geoffrey" Lily said and stroked carefully the even more dangerous beast. Now without weak points but still sharp teeth.
Take it as gift, mistress. I saw him waiting so long for you that I couldn't hold myself to renew his life, or more the remains that was still left I would say.
"You again! Can't you leave me alone for once! Let me do my job or do I need to try to kill you first!?" Lily said harshly. Her voice filled with anger and a bit of guilt.
"Hey, take it easy gal. I'm just her to point out some things for you. You are really dense are you by the way. Sartor is on the move again. Cant you feel that the triforce of Power has appeard again?
"Again.." Lily stuttered.
And by the way, you should pick up a friend in a farm somewhere here, It would be intresting if you did anyways.
The precense Dark Link had in this place dissapeard. He was gone, and only Lily and the undead Geoffrey was left. Broken Lily wandered towards some random farms. She didn't know why, but the thought of Sartor in full spirit broke her heart somehow. She needed to fix this for him. He would have done it easily, and now she needed to in his place.
*To farms and cows!*

Visculus and Aliana trekked across the fields, passing by travelers and the like as they advanced upon their destination, the Faron Woods.
Visculus glanced over at Aliana as they traveled, she was a few steps ahead of him, skipping happily. "Why do you want to go here, anyway?" He asked, wondering why they were going to the Faron Woods in the first place.
"Well the forest is really fun! It's big too, great for adventuring. There could be treasure and monsters and caves and dungeons in there!"
Visculus sighed, hoping they wouldn't get lost. As they reached the edge of the forest, Aliana dashed inside, overcome with excitement. Visculus rubbed his eyes, and relunctantly followed her into the woods.

*From the Great Bridge of Hylia*
A horse carrying two passengers galloped in a mad dash from the direction of the gret bridge. With them was a rolling Goron and another horse carrying two riders. The white mare ran along the center of the field, ignoring the dirt paths in order to take the quickest route to the woods. Rupert carried a small frown on his face from discomfort.

Durain rolled along behind everyone, feeling like the odd man out. As there were 2 horses, carrying 4 people, and then there was him, and only him...

*From the Southern Streets*
Mike ran out of the gates, and saw the 2 Iron Knuckles tripping over eachother. The former president then walked in, and stabbed the evil minions' heads for about 30 seconds. Then, he then made finishing stabs on them, but then a horde of bokoblins and bulblin were charging from the southern streets. Mike then boosted his way out of here in a hurry to run from the horde.
In the fields, Mike just walked, and decided to eat a piece of bread that he had in his pocket. So, by the time he was done with his bread, he was right next to the forest. Mike decided to just walk in.

Zerius and the poe continued along the path. The night wore on and he didn't want to be caught in the sun. He left for Hyrule castle, sensing strange auras there.

Gary kept running at a slower pace. While he couldn't get tired he COULD have a heart attack if he ran from Clocktown to Hyrule.

*from the lost woods*
Arun left the forest hanging his head and looking towards the earth beneath him. He had to find someone else to be around with, the feeling of being around people that are more than acquantinces was a very new one, and now that he's felt it, he didn't want it to go away. He'd have to find someone else.
He grabbed the hood of his cloak and wrapped it over his head, then slid his hands into his pockets. The wind made the long black cloak flutter, and he quickly decided to pull his hands out and cross his arms instead. Arun raised his head and looked at the sun, squinting and even being a bit blinded. Even though it was out, the heat from the forest was gone, and in the fields the cold wind reminded him of the dank cave he once lived in.
Arun shivered slightly and placed a foot infront of the other, as if he hadn't walked in a long time. Then, he slowly began to walk back to Hyrule Castle to try the tactic he used a while ago. It had seemed like a week, but it had only been a day..

*from the Inn's Outside; Ordon Woods*
It took Althalos about half an hour to leave the forest, so they were making a good time, they could probably arrive early at Kakariko Village.
But then, the knight was struck by the monstrosity that stood out in the horizon, leaving the knight speechless as he saw an unusual building or creature stand high and mighty above a what seemed ruined Castle Town.
"What in the goddesses name has happened? Who did this to my beloved country's capital? Oh, I could have never expected for the villains to have done so much in such a little time. And here I was thinking that the group that ambushed us at the forest was the worse we'd see in a long time." He seemed to have forgotten all about Kakariko village and just stood there, looking in disbelief at what happened.

*from the faron woods*
Cecillia had spent some of the time talking about the things they saw on the way, but as they moved she was getting more and more into the subject how much people underestimated herbal cures. It was perfect and yet so few seemed to understand how good it could be, most just wanted to use magic? But was not nature itself magic? "and I really think that...why did you stop?" the young witch noticed that Althalos was not walking next to her and that he seemed to have stopped walking.
The blond girl looked where he was looking and her eyes widened a little, she had never seen Hyrule town or the castle before, but she knew that it was not suppose to look like that! It was not like anything she had ever seen before...like a twisted tree...or something? Was that the castle? What had happened to it? "What is that thing? I have never...." she noticed that Althalos was just looking at the sight, she sighed softly and bit her lip...what was she suppose to do now? Cecillia walked over to Althalos and slowly stepped infront of him. "Hey...we need to go, I think that now more then ever is your work to help your...group" she said, her voice was gentle and she could guess that he was very confused right now.
*From the faron woods, a while before or after Cecillia and Althalos*
Faron stopped when his journey arrived at the outskirts from the woods, he had never been this far away from home. So it was not a surprise that he found this moment to be very special, so this was what the land outside looked like? It was...well not as impressive as he had imagined in his mind, just like a very large clearing. No forest? How did people live like this? The little kokiri scratched the side of his cheek with a finger and he examined the field, still safe among the trees. He did not see any tall people around, so that was good in a way, he did not like the idea to run into people right after leaving the forest.
It took the boy more then half an hour before he had gathered enough courage to take the first step out from the forest onto the soft grass of the open field. But it was less hard then he had made it seem in his head, with a small shrug of the shoulders Faron began to skip out on the field. The journey to Hyrule town was not short and it became longer when the little boy just HAD to stop and examine things on the way. So many things here did not exist in the woods.
He did not think how odd the castle looked, after all he had never seen it before so maybe that was how the Hylians liked to have there buildings? It looked creepy, but who was he to judge what the tall people liked? As he was getting closer to the city itself he became more nervous then he had been leaving the forest. After all he had never been in a stone building and even less an entier town. With just...tall people in it. Faron stood in the small garden before the town itself, he shifted from foot to foot as his eyes examined what waited for him. But this was odd, why did it look so much like the ruins in the forest? He had imagined buildings to be a little more...well intact.
The kokiri picked out the leaf compass he got from the deku tree and examined it, well it showed that he had to walk inside. With a deep breath of air the little child began to walk the stairs up to the castle gates. He could feel the little fairy hidding inside of his pocket, that made him feel more safe as he was not alone. His anger towards the little creature was gone now, it did not matter.
*To south Hyrule town*
Dragonheart Legacy - December 13, 2010 10:32 PM (GMT)
Althalos took a while to move again. Cecillia was right. He wouldn't accomplish anything with standing here staring at the monstrosity in Castle Town. "Let's move on. If I am to ever try to do anything at the town, I will need help from other templars." He then started to move again, heading to the *East Hyrule Fields*
DornKoon - December 15, 2010 07:20 AM (GMT)
Cecillia nodded a little, then she followed the paladin towards the east field.

*from Faron Woods*
The inn owner was having a nice trip. Ever since he made his big decision, he didn't have a time like this to rest. Now he saw everything clearly with his eyes, not someone else's. He also breathed the sweet scent of the fields, something he did not do during that time. He looked past the fields, towards the twisted structure that loomed above the doomed chasm that was once Castle Town. And the infamous roots, that seemed to be expanding slowly but surely.
He was making a good time on this trip. Another thing he missed. His old travels around the world. He had seen much, yet he never stopped to think back on it, or just enjoy the small things in life. Being like this was a wonderful break for him. He should do it more often.
He should check on the other fields, after all, just one out of four sides wouldn't tell him much about the damage.

*Enter the mage*
Miathan had approached from the coast, and headed through the land to Hyrule Castle Town, and now he saw there was no castle town, only a massive darkness. "Hmm...", said the mage. "Haven't I read about this somewhere? It looks awfully familiar...". The mage had probably read about Sartor, but his mind was a little drifted off at the moment, focusing on the latest book he was reading, an interesting work on alchemy, how it would be used to alter appearances of humans. It was an interersting subject. Mayhap a little barbaric, but if he could make it work, what fascinating experiments he could do!
He began to think what to do now, when he saw some civilians approaching the time, armed with bows.
He raised his hands above his head. "Gentlemen, I wish not to fight you!". The civilians asked if he worked with Sartor, and Miathan shook his head. "Sartor you say? Isn't he the Chaos Lord?". After a little explanation, the peasants lowered their weapons. "Say, my fine sirs, you don't happen to know of an inn? I am from Holodrum, and the long trip here has made me hungry and tired". The men with bows had come to try to raid what remained of Castle Town to get revenge on Sartor, but changed their minds. Instead, they took Miathan with them in their carriage after some introductions, and the mage smiled to himself, satisfied. The start in this land of legends had not been too good, but he had learned something new, and now he was about to go to an inn where he could sleep, which he liked. He was also thinking about what he knew of Sartor, whom he had read about before.

Sitting in a corner, nervously scratching the back of his head, the alchemist was worried. He had to fled the town, abandonning his research, his notes. He would have to start over again. He did not liked to be outside, he felt uneasy with people. Worst of all, those two elements were now together.
He was at a lost. Miguel stood far from people, already being shy and nervous, the people around him were feeling down, desperate, sad. Hyrule sent into the void. Atleast he had brougth his last book, with his last research.
''Homonculus, perfect being.'' he spoke to himself.
The perfection was not in the power of the creature. But in his innate abilities. No need to drink, to eat, to even sleep. Mana was everywhere, every living and non-living object were having their share on mana. Of course, spells were made out of 80% mana and 20% of an element unless it was pure mana. Elementless.
Thing like an iron sword, a stone and other non-magic, and non living object had a single percent of mana. Else, they would be immune to magic. But their mana is not enough to withstand more then a regular object.
Water, earth, wind, fire. All the elements were made out of it. The true source of life. But, the will of non-violence, should be educated into the homonculus.
Closing the book after reading his notes, Miguel felt a bit better.

*From East Hyrule Field*
Behind the large crew of Hylian refugees, more refugees poured into the field! The night had been long for everyone. So long that the morning sun was about to rise. People were tired, afraid and overly stressed. Most of the citizen were still breathing and moving, but there had been a few sad losses in this emigration. Old and sick people had reached their limits and dropped dead in the woods. The morale Raynar had inspire hours ago had waned off, and they were now too ill to listen to any more speeches. They only wanted to eat, to sleep, and be under a safe place. The Hylians still held faith, though. The red monsters that were escorting them were losing strength as their summon master was getting more and more tired.
Along with the refugees, the merchant called Syndellius was crossing through on his caravan. On it sat several passangers, seemingly of outmost importance, and resting.
The young man Cody was just as tired as everyone else. But he was happy because they were closing into his homelands: Faron Woods. It seemed to be the Kokiri boy Faron favorite spot, too. It was fun to see they had some similarities.
"Where exactly are we taking them? I don't think they can wander much longer...", he asked Faron while observing their surrounding. It had been a long marsch, with several disruptions, and these citizen were far from trained soldiers. It wouldn't be long before they would start complaining and perhaps go on a strike.
The Zora sorcerer Dart overheard Cody but didn't comment on it. These Hylians didn't even know what true suffering was. They had lost their home hundreds of time throughout history and yet they never learn. As soon as disaster struck, the people are replaced by the next generation, and they forget. It's as if they have forgotten how to take note and remember history.
But even in their dire situation, Dart was still curious how they would solve all of this. Could they truly gain strength enough to defeat Sartor? Whatever means, time was running out.
Not that he cared, really. He wasn't getting paid to save the world. As a matter of fact, he remembered that he have been giving out freebies far too long now.
With a swift wave with his hand, he desummoned his creatures, and let the soldiers take full care of the people. It was no longer his problem.
After that deed done, Dart was also getting tired. He hoped somebody would tell them to stop so they could set up camp and sleep.
DornKoon - April 8, 2011 04:11 PM (GMT)
*from the east*
Faron was watching the nature as they moved, he did not look back towards the castle and tried to avoid the weird tentacle...roots here and there. It looked like a large very ugly tree of some unknown kind. It made very umcomfortable and he wanted to avoid being that right now. The little kokiri looked at Cody when he talked, he then looked at the survivors from the town...it was true that they would not last long if forced to walk to much. "Well I know a clearing in the forest not far from the edge, it is very nice and has running water and even trees with apples in them. My people know about it, but only the brave dare to go that close to the edge of the forest." he explained slowly. It was hard to say for sure...where in the forest it was from here, he had to be inside of it to know.
"I think we should go there, I could not take you to my people because against our laws to take in outsiders. No hard feelings, but the kokiri is not..." he tried to find a good word. "I mean we do not understand the large world, we do not think alike or act that much alike. The term you have to "grow up" is weird, we do not grow up." he sighed softly and looked up at the shy, following the movement of the clouds. "I mean....it's over there!" he had just noticed a few trees that he remembered, it was easy to do so because it was two trees that had grown together and almost looked like two people hugging. "Over there we will find apples and water, it will be great to rest...and the forest will protect us." he looked to Cody and smiled brightly.
SSB Shadow - April 8, 2011 06:43 PM (GMT)
Cody couldn't help but feel slightly mistrusting to the Kokiri boy, and didn't share his joyful spirit.
"If we are not welcome here by your people, why did you suggest us to go here to begin with?", he asked him, getting the feeling Faron was being hypocritical. "In any case, we have no choice. Dangerous or not, we must stay."
The people massed themselves over there and stopped. Camps were set up and people could finally rest out. Horse and other cattle were placed some distance away. People went to sleep, covering their homes with shades since the sun was rising up on the horizon.
Cody jumped off of the caravan and decided to take a rest out on the wild. So he sat down near a tree with dry grass underneath, and then closed his eyes. He wasn't going to fall asleep immediately, so he wasn't completely unconscious yet.
Dart also climbed off the same carrier. He brushed some dust off from his robe and fixed it proparly. He then lied down near a small campring and joined in with the other sleepers. He would take a snooze for a few hours.
Lab-R4T - April 8, 2011 07:02 PM (GMT)
Miguel noticed a caravan getting in the camp, strange. Kokira and Zora init. Rare sigth for one that used to live in his laboratory, like a cloister. He looked at the people about to go sleep. How many will? Some migth not, after all, sorrow and despair are unresting companions. Others would be sleeping like babies, drained and tired of crying their past good-byes.
The alchemist would almost be back to zero in his researches. And thanks to numerology, zero was the sign of end, and new beginning. When there is nothing (zero), when we start to build over (zero). Miguel felt that his researches will, later on, change the world. Why? Because he was so young. He had still around forty years left. If in nearly twenty years, he was a prodigy of alchemy, what can he do in twice as much?
He went at the forest limits, to sleep under the cover of leaves... After he wrote some more notes. He looked at the people around. If only he had made his first homonculus to help them...
They want someone strong, someone protecting them, someone to trust. With this inspirations, he was wrting down elements for his will-be first creature. The basic design, well physically looking like a goron... But...

*From the place thing forest camp thing place*
Still on "Mr. Red's" back, Sam looked at the group. There was a lot of talking and stuff going on, so the little girl began to tinker with her hookshot. Last she used it, it had gotten all wet... More range would be nice too.
DornKoon - April 8, 2011 08:54 PM (GMT)
"Here and there, I never said I would take you to the land of my people. I just said I would find a safe place for you in the forest, the woods are large and I know many places outside of Kokiri land" he replied in a matter of fact way, he shrugged his shoulder a little and let out a small yawn, then he sighed. "Here is not even close to my people." he slowly climbed down from the wago and stretched himself a few times, just to make sure his body was alright. It did not sting as much as it had done before, so that was a bonus.
He watched Cody as the man walked over to rest, well he could use some sleep. Faron also needed to nap a little, but he was not going to stay at the camp...he wanted to sleep in a tree. After a quick search he found a good enough tree and began to climb it, clearly he had done this before as he reached the higher parts fast enough. "I knew it, an old owl nest...perfect" he commented at a large hole in the tree, he removed the old owl dirt and replaced it with soft leafs. "Bad for them that they are all so big" he commented to the fairy inside of his cap before he crawled into the hole. Of course people could still call to him if they wanted to talk, but Faron needed to take a nap in order to regain his strenght.
Sesshomaru - April 8, 2011 10:58 PM (GMT)
*From the Untread Path*
A burst of light came from the distance and a figure emerged from thin air. A young woman, donning long, lavender robes, looked about at her surroundings. Where had she appeared? She had only meant to escape Sartor's incoming attack, though it seemed her magic had been enhanced through close proximity to another piece of the Triforce. What happened to the Sages?
Zelda took a moment to catch her breath after the teleportation, and her eyes quickly drifted to the wagons of the familiar faces of Castle Town refuges. Glad to see her people were safe out of harm's way, she rushed to the group ahead.
Approaching a wagon holding a man draped in red clothes with a small child on his back, Zelda bowed out of habit. "Excuse me, travelers, but would either of you happen to know the state of the Sages of Hyrule? They had been engaged in a battle elsewhere on the field and... I fear for their lives in the presence of the Chaos Lord.'
Lab-R4T - April 9, 2011 02:17 AM (GMT)
At the flash of ligth, Miguel dropped his book, startled. He got it back looking around, fearing to look stupid. But he quickly dismissed the fear when he saw what, or more who appeared. The most beautiful woman he ever seen. Just like he felt his feet floating almost, towards her he heard the people telling who that mystic woman was, he froze solid. But, rigth behind her, it was to late to back step now, nervosity was holding him there.
She was hyrule jewel, her guide in dark times, living inspiration to all Hylians. He would kneel, by weakness if her eyes set their gaze on him. But at that single moment, he was in admiration with one of the godesesses's chosen.
D - April 9, 2011 04:58 AM (GMT)
*From North Hyrule Fields*
As if in response to Zelda's very question, a circle of Light Magic appeared on the ground behind Miguel. Thin walls rose from the circle, forming a dome. When the magic faded, the forms of the Sage of Light, Kyrie Saradon, the Sage of Spirit, Kole, and Kirren were visible.
The Sage of Light was holding his medallion, but even then, the glow in the object faded, and he pocketed it. Holding a sphere in his hands, Rupert shook, sobbing and gasping for air. The sage looked up slightly, realizing they had arrived far from where he had intended. However, when he saw Zelda, he guessed that she had summoned the remaining sages and that explained the failure in his teleportation.
Ijokish tried to stand, but collapsed, his energy drained to its last reserves.
SSB Shadow - April 9, 2011 11:26 AM (GMT)
((If people don't mind, how about a fast-forward to morning so everyone can rest up and be ready for action again? The guys battling Sartor should probably dead-tired too to start debating about Hyrule's future anyway... =D ))
Several hours later, around noon...
The exiled people of Hyrule have had a decent night's sleep. Most were not used to be seelping outdoors so awakening men and women (and some children) rose with complaints about the lack of comfort, as if that would soothe their problems and accomplish something.
The day was cloudy and gray, with some hint of winds. It was cold and it would most likely rain later on in the evening.
In higher order, a debate was starting on how to deal with the refugees, taking place in a large tent. Several members were summoned to discuss their next move, and asked a briefing from the Sages and Zelda on what has happened and what their next move would be to defeat Sartor.
Cody woke up like everyone else. His tummy began to growl in its usual fashion and he felt the need to feed. So he joined along with some women to gather apples, in order to snatch some for himself. He remembered the time when he didn't mind eating this all day long. The life in the city had made him a bit spoiled. He now felt this little wouldn't satisfy him that much. Where was the milk, the bread, with bacon and sausage?
Come to think of it, that didn't sound healthy at all. For his new lifestyle, it's probably for the best to cut off such food from now on.
Afterward, he casually walked around in the camp, watching the people do their people things. He was just a low commoner so he wasn't invited to the big meeting that was taking place.
"La, la, la...", he murmured, kicking some rocks on the way.
Dart had slept a little longer than everyone else, which was a grave risk since it could upset the employer. But in his sleep, he couldn't mind that. Once he woke up an hour later, he stretched himself and climbed off the wagon. His butt was sore of sitting so long and he was hungry as well. He ate from his usual rationpacks, feeding on dry jerky and water. Once he was done, he observed the climate and the people. He had learned that weather was unpredictable, so he never liked to assume it. When it come to mother nature, they were underneath in that level.
In any case, once he was done eating, the Zora sat down on the ground and took out his book about the Tokay history. He found their technological wonders to be fascinating although their passion was out-of-this-world. Their rise and fall reminded so much of the fabeled Babylon or Atlantis (whatever those were, he had no clue).
Sesshomaru - April 9, 2011 07:09 PM (GMT)
In the night before, Zelda had been told about the duel between the Chaos Lord and the Sage of Shadows. Rupert was devastated beyond the means of speaking clearly, and Siegfried had also encountered some sort of mental anguish that none of the others wished to discuss. Kyrie was able to offer her view on the whole fight, though herself seemed upset that she wasn't able to strike Sartor down in the time previous to the duel. Sehkon was now gone, and though Zelda neither knew much about him nor knew a great deal of his power, she could feel that their side had lost a powerful asset. The Sage of Shadow was fighting to destroy Hyrule; the premise made her shiver. She felt a sorrow disconnected to her professional persona as a Sage and a Princess, though the pushed the feelings aside quickly.
A meeting was held the next day with all of those present at the duel invited to provide their input on the next fight. She hadn't seen Rupert the entire morning, though Siegfried and Kyrie had been able to make it in time. The former city councilman was also invited as Zelda knew of his role as a role model to the people of Castle Town, and several other important figures from Hyrule Castle were scattered across the tent.
"So... Clock Town too, then?" Zelda asked, an obvious sadness apparent in her eyes. She was strong, determined, though also very sympathetic. The harm of others was nearly unbearable, and the Triforce was often the only thing that allowed her to keep a straight face in times of despair. "Do they at least have refuges, or more that we can take under our wing? You simply can't mean-"
"All of them," a soldier said, the emblem of the Hyrule Royal Family on the chestplate of his armor. It was obvious he had worked in the castle before it was taken over, and the fact that he was able to flee was a miracle. "Reports have said... that they're all dead, milady. They say it was... Ganondorf."
Zelda paused, her face straining to not show horrified shock. She knew that Ganondorf was not the threat he was told to be in the history books, at least without his piece of the Triforce, yet her mind drifted to the thought that this man could in fact be the same Ganondorf she had traveled with only weeks before. By the stories the warlock seemed to be far more similar to the Evil King of lore, though she had a feeling that this threat was connected to that hooded figure from before.
"And Gelamfortis? How many people can they hold?"
Bootman - April 9, 2011 08:18 PM (GMT)
Siegfried had spent the night in deep thought, something unusual for him. Was he too weak? Was that the problem? His first real friend out of temple was just taken, body and soul. In large part to Abbadon resurfacing, but mainly due to his inability to strike down Sartor in the first place.
No... It wasn't power that was the problem. Sartor was older then could be conceived. He had surely seen all of Siegfried's styles many times over... and would probably know any others that he could learn... Then, there would only be one answer...
He put that aside for now. The martial artist wasn't clear on what a Sage was, and what he was supposed to do, but was informed that he should attend the meeting.
Kyrie left after having explained her view on the battle to Zelda. She managed to make it out of sight of the camp before collapsing and screaming. She hadn't used her demon powers so much since... no, she couldn't afford to think back to those times.
Most of the night for Kyrie was spent crying and screaming as her body and mind settled with all the problems they were facing. Nothing she ever did was ever enough... all of it was doomed to fail from the start. That was the last thought that went through her head before she passed out on the grass.
Kyrie came back to the camp the next morning, knowing that there was something important she had to bring to the meeting.
The Sage and the sorceress sat around the table. There hadn’t been much need to speak from either of them, until Gelamenfortis was mentioned. Siegfried looked up at the mention of the name of his birthplace before even registering the question. The Sage thought for a moment on it.
“Probably everyone, Ms. Zelda. It’s really big. And worst comes to worst you could always set up tents in the garden. Plus maybe they could learn how to fight while they’re there. Most of these people probably couldn’t even beat a sewing student. Heh.”
Siegfried’s laugh was dry. Obviously he was just trying to raise the mood, though the loss of Sehkon made it hard.
Kyire hadn’t the slightest clue what they were talking about, but decided to wait to present her finding.

((Well, since Mastah pretty much has archived and given up on Raynar...))
The sergeant ((or whatever rank he was)) slammed his fist onto the table when Kyrie made her statement. Joke or not, he didn't like it.
"You're making fun of our people at this time!?", he roared out in fury. His head turned to the Princess of Hyrule.
"Your Highness, this is a serious situation. Your offensive have failed and we have barely any manpower and resources left to make another attack. If we are to make a move, it better have a good plan. Attacking the castle will be too risky at this point."
"...Mmyess...", the secretary murmured, and took notes on his piece of paper.
"Do we have any more intel about Sartor!?", he asked, glaring at Kyrie and the crew. "You fought him, didn't you!? Does he have any weaknesses we cam exploit!?".

Faron spent all night sleeping in the tree, it was nice and he was sleeping like a baby. He woke up early like he always did and spent some time to restock on his deku nuts, since he had given the once he had to Cody earlier...not sure if the young man used them or not. When he returned other people was starting to wake up and so he was trying to keep an eye open for the woman with golden hair he meet earlier.
The little kokiri was also present at the meeting, mostly because he was the only one of his people present to be at such a meeting. He did not like meetings like this and mostly he just sat to the side from the others, seemingly cleaning his boomerang. Just to show good manners he had taken off the cap, this revealed the blond bush that was his hair. He did not care to be as clean as the hylians, there was no reason to be it in the forest, he had a mouse living in his pocket and a fairty presently inside of his other pocket.
He did not get much of what the people said, it was not his world...Ganondorf who? Gelamcheese? Chelomartis? No he did not say anything, with the risk to seem stupid about talking about a subject he did not know anything about, but he could guess this place was far away...and he knew a few things about travel as he did it daily in the forest. "Excuse me...but it would still depend on how much your willing to push the others...uhm...Zelda was it?" he commented, taking word for the first time since the meeting began. He stood up...mainly to get a little higher...not that it made much difference. "Not to say that what...this...guy said was nice, it is never nice to hear bad things about our own peoples, but the fact remains that most here do not have the skill to fight and in so...how good would they do if forced to travel to long?" he made a pause to examine all the others.
He had done some thinking and knew that he had to help, after all if this Sartor person was able to end the world like he claimed, then the forest would also be gone and even if he did not want to mix his people into everything...he could still act on his own in order to help them. He was also thinking that maybe the deku tree could give them some answers what they could do in order to find a way to stop that...Sartor person? But he was held back by the fact that he did not wish to take any of these people into Kokiri land, but maybe he could use the leaf he had been given earlier to contact the father?

Miguel turned around to see a man and a woman appeared, they seemed transported by some magical transportation spell.He moved aside and let Zelda approached them. He felt bad, he wanted to help, but...he could not, he didn't even have the courage to ask anything.
He went to sleep, sad about his uncomfort around people. He needed to make some potions for his courage. To help him, and others. He decided to go gather some herbs in the forest. Once he got back, he took a snack, an apple, ask for a bowl, and a fire. Any thing that could substitute his instrument.
The drink gave a feeling of courage, like some alcoolic drink but without any effect,except having an awful taste. He went to sleep afterward.
At the meeting, he listened people discussed. All of them, so energetic, he felt worse. But his potion only last one hour. He wanted to appear well in control, but still. He drank it in one shot, and stood up, feeling the effect of his potion kicking.
''If you allow me, i am Miguel Daragos, alchemist. People knows that whatever they had, they lost it. And with the appearance of our dear Princess. People will follow her whatever she decides.
The people, they will do their best at what they do. I migth work some potions that you may need if you want me to. I am yours to command your highness.''
He felt happy, to talk without inconveniance. And to tell the princess, that he, was giving himself to the best of his capabilities.

Zelda took in all the words of those around her at once before speaking, and her mannerisms would likely seem as though she had ignored all but those she would address first in the conversation. In spite of this appearance, the Princess was ready to face each of the statements accordingly. Looking around a moment for the Spirit of Light, Zelda continued when she saw no signs of Rupert.
"I have no desire to forge an aggressive sort of action while my people lie exposed," she began, taking a deep breath before her next statement. "I do not wish to make immediate action to search for the source of, the solution to, or a connection with Sartor's power at such a fragile state. We must head to a place where the people will be safe while those of appropriate status search for the answers to these questions.
"While the forest may be safe for the Kokiri people, the lack of security in knowing whether my people will be accepted does not bring enough solace to risk tiring them in case they are denied proper living requirements. Castle Town has all but been removed from potential shelter, Clock Town has fallen, the Fortress in the Desert and the city nearby are both in the stages of recovery, and few other locations have the sufficient resources to house such a large group of people. We will head for the academy at Gelamenfortis, and we will do our best to keep to this goal until we reach our destiny. Even if man on the side of the road claims to be the Hero of Time and reveals proof of this claim without a hint of doubt, he shall not stop to hear plea for his assistance. We leave within the hour.
"Young alchemist," the Princess continued, turning her attention to the man beside her. "I thank you for your offer. You will be informed immediately if the need for your skills arrive. If there are any wounded around the camp, would you see to healing their pain?"
Lab-R4T - April 10, 2011 12:18 PM (GMT)
He listened to Zelda, asking humbly for his skills. It was such an honor. Helping the people, in the name of their princess. He bowed to here. ''I would simply require ingredients near the forests. I could dress up a list and burrow a few items to substitute my alchemic tools.''
When he heard about the incoming departure, he nodded.''In that case, we will have to wait Gelamenfortis. I will need volunteers if there is a lot of wounded to find enough ingredients for all.''

Was all Siegfried said. It seemed that he wasn't even listening to anything that didn't directly concern him or wasn't said by Zelda.
"Do to the constant training and battles, and it's secluded nature, Gelamenfortis keeps a large supply of herbs and ingredients. In fact, some of them don't exist in the rest of the world according to Zelda [I'm referring to the Silver Leaf tea thing]. Yander is normally pretty busy making potions and stuff, so we always have an overstock."
Siegfried then dropped his head back into a hanging position and waited for something to address him, or his only friend currently at the meeting to say something.
Well, there was Kyrie... but he wasn't sure if she counted.
Speaking of Kyrie, she waited impatiently for the unimportant talks of the plight of the Hyrulian people to end so that she could start the important topic. The defeat of Sartor.

Rupert had spoken very little that night. He had stood around with the others quietly as Zelda was being filled in. He had left with her the orb in which he and Sehkon had viewed visions depicting Sartor's past. After everyone had separated, he fell asleep near a campfire circle near the light of the flame.
The next morning, Rupert could not be found where he had fallen asleep. The Sage of Light was silently walking some ways from the edge of camp. His eyes were slightly bloodshot as he watched the sun rise over the horizon, its light not reaching into the dark clouds that covered the center of Hyrule. He didn't look away as he heard someone coming up behind him. "Sir, you are the Sage of Light?" a voice said behind him. Rupert shut his eyes now, nodding slowly. "Your presence is requested at a meeting in Her Highness' tent."
"...Very well. I'll... be there shortly..." he said slowly. He stood still for several minutes after the Hylian soldier ran back to the camp. Then the sage opened his eyes, and turned about, heading back towards the camp. Suddenly, quicker than he realized, he already found himself in the tent (he didn't teleport; just spaced out while he walked). Kyrie looked impatient, Siegfried distracted, Zelda worried, some boy talking about helping people's wounds, and Rupert tired. They all looked nervous though. Rupert himself said nothing.

The kid frowned a little at the comment said by the woman with blond hair, the princess was she? The woman that the deku tree had told him would help him find...something, he did not know what that something was. He was a little tired that whenever he talked about the forest people just assumed he talked about his forest...the kokiri forest was just a small part of the large forest. There was more then enough forest for everyone many times over.
It was not his people, so he could not tell them what to do. But he felt a strong...fear against leaving Hyrule, he had just left the woods for the first time in his life and now people talked about going to...some unknown place he never heard about? If he left...then. The kokiri lowered his gaze, slowly twisting the cap between his hands. Galemattias? "I...uhm...have to go" he suddenly said and stood up, before anyone could stop him he was gone from the tent. He did not stop until he came outside of the camp, there he just laid down with his face resting against the grass. He closed his eyes, maybe it was a mistake for him to do this?

Kole had had a good night's sleep, but due to all the trauma of the day before, when the group was fighting Sartor, he had slept a bit longer than normal. As he raised his head to see what was going on in the impromptu camp, he saw Faron walking away. Curious, Kole decided to follow him.
He saw as Faron laid down. He saw Faron's face, as if he was about to give a great sigh. So he walked up to him and asked, "Hey. Is there something wrong?" Kole sat down next to Faron, relaxed. Maybe he could get the kid out of his funk.
Sesshomaru - April 11, 2011 06:27 AM (GMT)
Zelda prepared to respond to Miguel's statement, though turned and allowed Siegfried to chime in. She offered a look of sympathy impulsively once he was finished, though turned to the alchemist once again out of politeness. "Well, whatever you have with you will work for now. It would be best if everyone was in the best of spirit and health for our travels through the woods and into Termina. Thank you again for such a kind hand in our hour of need." She bowed to Miguel before her eyes drifted over to Rupert.
"To those present at Sartor's victory over-" Zelda said, pausing before she finished her statement. It was difficult to think of what had transpired just a day ago, even if she wasn't present. "Fellow Sages, Kyrie, could you three please come with me? We should speak before we set out. Meet me in my tent... please." She bowed again, though it was apparent that this was forced formality in a situation where she wished to be more intimate. Before any others could speak, she was out of the tent.
Crossing the grassy fields, Zelda saw several children playing only a feet outside the meeting tent. Their eyes shot to her, and both of their smiles grew in intensity. The only girl child present giggled uncontrollably before rushing off to another part of the camp, the young boy children running after. Zelda smiled warmly as the moved away, though her happiness soon melted away. She thought of the prospect of failure, and she couldn't bare thinking of letting these people down. Continuing to her tent, she entered and sat on her bed, putting her head in her hands.
