I have Rebuilt the Kwandrivia Roleplay World, there are new national banner and a simplified layout that is easier to use and has less subforums. I have also skipped the Civil War Idea I had and just made the new layout with that in mind.

The Laurentia Empire has now split into two nations, the Anglia Empire and the United States of Laurentia.

Into the Depths of the Furnace: Zegakiah & Alexis

Anyone wishing to either see the Supreme Commander, or become a State Alchemist will step into the large walls that enclose the Helm Fortress. Here the Supreme Commander sits in his seat of power well above the citizens, he commands over his military and makes sure his people remain safe.

ΣI continued to follow the guards as they continued to lead us deeper and deeper into the fortress. The more I saw of it, the less I liked it honestly. By the time we were within sight of the Fuhrer, I had lost interest completely, and my eyes remained straight forwards towards the Fuhrer. Avanni and Vayu were quite they opposite, the more they say, the more their eyes moved and mouths hung open. It was probably my fault they never got out much, however, they didn't seem to share my disdain for closed and heavily guarded spaces. I only nodded to the guards who spoke, feeling it was better to keep quiet for now, and not give them an excuse to question are motives again.Σ

☼I continued to gaze around as we made our way through the fortress, Silvano at my side. I also shared Zegakiah's weapon's awe and amazement for this place. I almost wished I could live here, it was indeed so beautifully crafted...so orderly and regal. I keep within a few feet of Zegakiah at all times however, definitely not wanting to get lost again. If I started to stray at all, Silvano would give me a gentle nudge to keep me on track. I didn't speak to the guard either, but just gave them a very bright smile, figuring it was best to leave Zegakiah to do the talking.☼

Once they reached the Fuhrer whom was sitting under his shaded table in the courtyard, the guard escorting the two would step back 5 feet and stand firm. The Fuhrer despite looking busy, would turn his attention towards the two and smile.

"Good to see you two, I've been expecting you. Just for the record, what are your names" He would say with an accent that was very European.

ΣUpon approaching the Fuhrer, I lowered myself into a deep bow of respect. When straightened back up, I spoke calmly.Σ

"A pleasure to meet you, Fuhrer. I am Zegakiah, and these are my companions Vayu and Avanni..."

ΣI said, gesturing to the man and the jaguar beside myself. I then remained silent, watching the Fuhrur calmly, yet with anticipation. It was a big deal to be in front of such an important leader, I didn't want to screw that up.Σ

☼I curtsied along with Zegakiah's bow, remaining polite and silent until Zegakiah was finished. Then I spoke, using a sweet of a tone as possible, yet making sure to remain polite as well, not wanting to appear snotty, as I might have in front of others.☼

"My name is Alexis, and this is my partner Silvano. It is indeed an honor to grace your presence, Fuhrer."

☼I finished, my hands on my hips, as I watched the Fuhrer, my pearl white teeth showing out from my wide smile.☼

"Ah, my name is Bernd Gehry, Fuhrer of the Helm Islands." the Fuhrer would say placing his hand upon the table, from which he would draw some patterns with his index finger.

After that, the table would glow, and from there, the ground around the table would shift and shape until two chairs made of stone formed.

"Two seats if you wish to take them" he would say pausing after that before resting the hand he was using to draw the circle below the table.

"Let me get down to things. Recently, people have gone missing, 12 at least, all workers in the Polderstokes. I need you two to head into the furnaces and check things out. Temperatures are extreme, so suits are needed if you don't have protection yourself." the Fuhrer would say waiting for them to respond.

ΣI listened intently to what the Fuhrer said about the mission, making sure not to miss any details. Once he finished, without moving over to the chairs, I spoke again in a calm, respectful tone.Σ

"Suits would be appreciated, we need not waste energy unnecessarily. Is there any additional information you can give us about the workers, the Polderstokes, who or what might be doing this? Any information would be appreciated and is very valuable when going into such situations, especially for those like us who aren't familiar with the area."

☼As soon as the seat appeared, after marveling at such powers, I seated myself gently into one, whispering a word of thanks. I then remained silent as Silvano stood behind my chair, leaning against it. We also listened intently, soaking in the details of the mission carefully, so as to prepare for what lay ahead in the Polderstokes. My eyes turned to Zegakiah as he spoke his question, and then returned to the Fuhrer once my mission partner was finished.☼

"Suits will be provided before you enter the boilers, as for when this happened, it was at night, during an hourly inspection, several times people just up and vanished, never reported in for their breaks. As for what the Polderstokes are, they are the power source of the Helm Islands. They are massive boilers that generate steam and then condense that steam into SteamSphere's which are portable power sources for the things that keep their country running. I don't have any information on the person or thing that is taking people, but I do know it would be a threat to the Polderstokes and it needs to be gone" He would say.

ΣI listened intently to the information the Fuhrer provided, nodding when he finished, and waiting a moment before speaking a reply.Σ

"Very well, I think we have enough to go off of, despite the limited amount we know. If possible I would like to enter the Polderstokes before the night shift begins and find a place to hide out. Once there, we can wait for night to fall and scout out the area during that time...maybe we can catch whomever or whatever is doing this in the act and stop it. If we have your approval, that is..."

ΣI finished, politely waiting for the Fuhrer to reply to the suggested course of action that I proposed.Σ

☼I listened to the conversation unfold in silence, despite wanting to say something. I was normally very vocal in social situations, however, I had very little strategy experience, thus was a little out of my element. My eyebrows raised in surprise after Zegakiah gave him plan, impressed to say the least at the strategy he came up with. I turned my attention back to the Fuhrer again once the plan had been revealed, also waiting for an answer.☼

"Thank can be arranged" The Fuhrer would responde pulling a time piece from his pocket and checking it.

"You two have a few hours until the day-shift ends and night-watch begins. Why don't you too relax and get prepared. There's a room at a hotel in the Homesteads I'll have prepared for you, it should be ready if you need it. Oh and when the time comes, a single Worker will meet you at the gates to the Polderstokes, he'll see you inside but no further" the Fuhrer would say.

((Going to do a time-skip here to get things rolling...))

"Thank you very much, Fuhrer. We will report back to you once we have information regarding the situation...or have apprehended the culprit."

ΣI said with a bow, before turning and heading out again the way we came, heading in the direction of the hotel that the Fuhrer spoke of. I only paused so that Alexis could follow, and from there we made our way to the Homesteads for a little R&R, before it was time to really start the mission we came for.Σ

((~TimeSkip~))

ΣIt was about an hour and three quarters later that the two of us were back on the street, having taken our rest at the hotel and received our suits. We were now heading to the Polderstokes, suited up and heading to the gates, a little early, not wanting to miss the worker whom we were supposed to meet. I walked in silence, as usual, pondering our mission and the angle we were taking. A few moments later we arrived at the gates and stopped, waiting for the worker to appear and let us in.Σ

☼I walked beside Zegakiah as we made our way towards the Polderstokes gate, Silvano walking behind me as usual, following in silence. I remained silent as well, at least until we got to the gate. It had been too long since we spoke to each other, I was starting to get antsy.☼

"Its been an interesting day so far. I'm glad that your quick on your feet, otherwise we wouldn't have gotten this far. And I can't wait to see what lies ahead."

☼I said, as though thinking out loud, though still expecting an answer back. Meanwhile, I fingered the arm of my suit, the soft material some sort of alloy between high grade metal and light cloth. I was indeed durable, yet very light, and breathable. Seemed that the people of Helm Peak were quite advanced, technologically speaking...or perhaps they were very good at trading. Either way, the suits still needed something...a color and design flair to be sure. Maybe some diamond shapes and sparkles! Their plain gray-brown exterior now was too...plain, for my taste.☼
