Damian Gerard|Returning to Magnolia



Damian nodded at the mention of Master Jamie being in a meeting with Jack. He'd also seen a new face to the hall head to her office, likely another guild master he hadn't yet met. He would have to speak with her later then, which wasn't a problem, it was mainly a status report on the relations at the borders. As for Sam..."If you're worried about her, then perhaps I should let you go find her. We'll have plenty of time to catch up later." Almost as if to punctuate the later, an official entered the hall and, after looking over the assorted faces for a moment, approached Damian. The two exchanged words for a moment before the S-Class mage nodded and the official left. "That's our que to get headed out. Hopefully your mom and dad will bring you to the match, it's going to be wild."

Standing, his voice boomed out just loud enough to get everyone's attention. "Phoenix Wing S-Class, time to head to the arena for preparation and to get the match underway. Everyone, I hope to see you there!" And with that, he headed for the door to wait on the others. Once the four of them were together, they all headed out and followed the official towards the Arena Indominus.

As Elena ran off to find Mark, Jane simply chuckled and shook her head. Nabbing a drink from a passing waiter, the Energy Blade mage sauntered over to the resident battle-hunter and took a seat next to him. "Quite the gathering here, isn't it? See anyone that piques your interest?" The announcement that the S-Class were heading out caught her attention and she turned back to Belius with a grin. "Seems you'll find someone this way the quickest. Come on, we can walk and talk."

James Avelane|A Pupil's Arrival



"There will undoubtedly be some amount of swordplay between the two, Cody, but this is an exhibition with all of them, so a magical show is much more likely. As for seeing the skills of other swordsmen, it is indeed a good habit to form, though forms and styles vary widely between styles of weapons, as Damian will likely showcase given the wide range of swords he can wield." He followed Cecillia's gaze to the other Exceeds and shrugged. "They are young, much like their partners. High energy is to be expected."

Many of the voices, however, were cut short by Damian announcing that the Exhibition Match was soon to begin and that the S-Class mages were leaving to go prepare for it. James himself smiled softly in anticipation and he finally dismissed his helmet, though he didn't dismiss his armor, though the energy wings that came from the back of his chest piece settled into more of a cape formation. "And so it begins. Shall we all head that way together?"

Jake Ronan|Dinner for Two



Jake smiled softly and pulled Pyrrha into a loving embrace. "I don't care if you don't have anything fancy. It's not about the people around us, it's about us. And besides, I've never taken you to a restaurant next to the sea, so consider it done. Let me go shower and get cleaned up and then we'll go."

Jack Goran|A Meeting of Masters, Old and New



Jack took the candle and appraised it with a knowing eye. The wax certainly contained magic, though it was different from magic he knew. "I agree, the candle is exquisite. Though with our being neighbors, you can count on seeing me visit on occasion." When Jamie suggested that he handle getting the communal board set up, he grimaced slightly, but nodded, mentally beginning a checklist of what he'd need to acquire for all three guilds who's masters were currently present to use and access the board.

"It will certainly take some time to get everything together and arranged, so there is no rush to get other guilds to agree. I have to make sure things will work just for the three of us first anyways." A commotion caught Jack's attention on the lacrima surveillance that Jamie used and he raised an eyebrow as her S-Class gathered at the front door. "Is there an event today, Jamie?"

Hunter Jorgenson|Call of the Wild



Hunter shook his head as the Oni and the hot head went at it, but nodded to Silver to come along. "Seems no one else is in a hurry to come along and I don't want to go with less than four, five or six is ideal, but this should be a simple enough job. Hot-head and Enma, get your gear for desert weather. Silver, you too. I'll meet you guys at the train station." And with that, the Dragon Slayer was on his way out the door, though he didn't specify why.
Damian Gerard|Fenixtear Guildhall



Damian nodded at the plan and followed her into the kitchen. However, he couldn't say he was entirely prepared for what he found waiting for them in the room. As she asked him to get the counters and the various ingredients taken care of, Damian nodded and moved with no undue amount of haste. His mind was already running over how long it would take the two of them to get the totality of the mess cleaned up enough for functionality versus full usability and, if he was honest with himself, the numbers weren't great either way. Still, as he sorted out spices from herbs and found their appropriate homes in the cupboards, he was already enjoying the work.

After a few minutes, the worst of the mess was at least sorted and he was now getting them all put away, or at least the ones he could salvage. Some of them had needed cold storage and had been out too long to be used again. I'll offer to go grocery shopping later some, replenish some of the perishable ingredients that are readily available locally. Finishing up, he turned to see what else needed done and check to see Ria's progress. If he was honest, he was almost positive that the rush was going to start soon.

{Copy, coming down.} Turning to the Unggoy, he nodded before heading for the ramp back down. "Sounds like we didn't get the fun objective. Squad lead says back to the split." Obviously the walk back down the ramp was going to prove far less dangerous and the trip back out of the room, but that didn't bother the SPARTAN-IV. It gave them time to strategize and re-establish contact with Aviza's team, though he wasn't sure that they'd answer if they were in the midst of a fire fight. Reaching the bottom of the ramp, Ryker took up a position looking down the hall from the door way. "That sure was an awful lot of fight for some food stuffs. Are we sure they're nothing special?" It wasn't an uncommon thing for things like food stuffs to be used as IEDs, especially with the peacetime they were in and the shortages some sectors were facing.

Then again, if they'd been rigged, suppose the Innies would have detonated the stash then and there and there'd have been no firefight like there was. Still, perhaps having a bomb removal team come through and check wouldn't hurt in the post-operation. "Ready to move when you are squad lead."
Damian Gerard|Crocus City Proper



Damian hummed thoughtfully as he walked through the doors, nodding in thanks to Ria without any conscious thought and heading for a table. "I'd have to do some scouting around to find a good spot, but I'm all for teaching someone how to fish." Carmilla trotted over to her spot by the bar to keep an eye on the door while Jaëger followed the swordsman to where he sat down, thinking. As Ria moved past him again, mentioning that the kitchen should be clean just in time for the next rush, the young man snapped his fingers.

"Steak! I'll make a steak dinner. Haven't done it in awhile, but I cooked frequently enough anyways." Standing, he follows Ria. "I'll help ya clean and cook for the next rush if I can get your help with making a steak dinner for the guild. Well, steak and some potatoes."
Damian Gerard|Returning to Magnolia



Damian chuckled as he sat down and ordered a slice of apple pie. "And you know that for me, price is not an issue. You're my goddaughter, Amelia, the least I can do is spoil you. And regardless, it was Penny's idea, so talk to her about price." Thanking the person for the slice of pie, Damian takes a bite before continuing. "Anyways, how's things been? Been about a month since we last talked, so I'm a touch behind."

Jane Addeson|Within the Fabled Hall



Jane shrugged and let Karn explain their unique situation before speaking up herself and answering the ones that she could. "Well, to be fair, the guild's reputation is always on a knife's edge for the most part. We got the white knights like James and Damian that keep us from sinking under completely, then those of us like myself who are known to get the job done under any circumstance, albeit with some...small, extra damage to the surroundings." This drew a small chuckle from the energy blade mage and then she addressed the drinking. However, as she was about to continue, the young shapeshifting mage had a water induced panic attack and quickly excused themselves from the area, drawing little more than a shake of the head from Jane. I'll have to thank him for the compliment later then.

"Well, that's unfortunate, but probably the best way to handle that. Anyways, I think Mark might have something to say about that. He may not be much for words, but that man is a steady drinker and I'm about ninety-five percent sure he's drunk nearly double his body weight since he joined up. Fair warning, before you rush over there, he's not a big fan of unexpected conversation. In any case, we've got a few people looking into ways to separate two people into one," She takes a cup of juice from a passing guild member who was acting as a server for the day and takes a sip, "so I'm sure someone would help ya if you talked to 'em."

James Avelane|A Pupil's Arrival



Herb gathering, huh? Seems like a simple enough task barring the unforeseen." Joshua, however, was quick to shift to answer Amaya's question and so he turned to his pupil, who had once more lost himself in the combat drills and neglected the Light of the Protector. Not that the Paladin blamed him, being new to the magic and all that. James had grown up learning to wield and cast his magic, even before it had progressed to the Light of the Avenger. Keeping on top of all of it was in his nature, between his magic training and his being raised to become a knight of the realm. "There's nothing to worry about, Cody. We can go over them later. For now, why don't you take a break and enjoy the company of your friends and guild mates."

Jake Ronan|Winning the Bout



Jake chuckled as he took a drink of the water that was brought over to him. "Ah, too late for that. Lets say we head out to Hargeon here in the next couple of hours, have some fresh caught fish?" Jake knew she wasn't necessarily a fan him spending a lot of money on her, he enjoyed doing so, since it was really just sitting in his account before. Not to mention that Hunter had this job under control, so there was nothing for him to worry about.

Jack Goran|A Meeting of Masters, Old and New



Jack rubbed his chin thoughtfully as he accepted the tea that Jamie offered, taking a moment to pull out a vial of green flame and add some to the tea, the flame dancing upon the top of the liquid without issue. "The primary issue, as it were, is that most of our requests are of the monster hunting variety. We've built something of a reputation as a specialist guild in the field and so we're highly popular for it. Suppose having a Dragon Slayer as an S-Class does somewhat build a confidence towards us in that regard. Though...Hold on." Pulling his phone back out and taking a sip of the flame topped tea, Jack taps a couple of different things and then some documents print from Jamie's printer. It had been a gift from him to her and it had made many of their more urgent conversations easier to exchange information with.

Standing and retrieving the documents, Jack hands them to Priscilla before retaking his seat. "I've already informed the clients that I've forwarded these jobs to you and Wolven Pyre and to expect to hear from either you or your members upon job completion. I hope that's sufficient for the time being. And these may not pay well, but should your members do well, these are the kinds of clients who get your guild's name out there." Jack had handed the Guildmaster of Wolven Pyre three jobs, all paying about 500,000 jewel total, that seemed easy enough. One was a delivery job for some wine from a well known winery, the Betalo Winery, to various locations and paid the best at 200,000 jewel, plus one bottle to the person who makes the deliveries. The second job was only paying 150,000 jewel, but was helping for ten hours a day for three days at a lumber mill run by Despardo Inc. Some of their workers had fallen ill and they figured magical help could help make up for it.

The last job was also 150,000 jewel, but was the most intriguing. They needed someone to retrieve some historical magic items and bring them to the Museum of History in Crocus. It also included a reward in the form of a magic sword from amongst the items retrieved. As Jack had said, all three were well known for recommending guilds who do well to other potential clients, and with these three jobs, it was clear the Dragon Fang guildmaster had essentially handed Priscilla the keys to the kingdom in a way.

"As for a communal job board, we'd have to accept some of that new digital age tech to make it work. Simply put, it would take too long to get everything to all of our guilds traditionally. And I would still prefer to keep the Monster Hunting with us, at least until we can corner and get a look at one of these new monsters."

Hunter Jorgenson|Call of the Wild



Hunter just sighs as Ash comes in and immediately sets to trying to rile up the other members of the guild. While he was always ready and willing to brawl with all comers, he didn't feel an incessant need to belittle anyone else just to burn the losers. "Right, that makes two, I need either one more A-Class or I'm taking our two support mages. Can never have too much support, even if we aren't expecting trouble. So hurry up and speak your peace, otherwise hold it."

Spartan Lucas Ryker


The sudden barrage of SAW fire was more than a bit annoying for the SPARTAN IV as he was forced into cover once more, though at least this was more the kind of suppressive fire that kept him from getting a clear shot. Since he was on the high ground, the shots had less chance of hitting his shielding, but he couldn't get a clear line of fire. So, swapping the SMG for his DMR, he braced and waited. Eventually, he could hear the sound of the Mgalekgolo's cannon charging and he knew he'd have his chance soon.

However, as he went to relay an idea he had to Grikgar, the cannon fired and the Unggoy opened fire with his pistol. "Well, I can work with that too." Popping up with his DMR already tucked snuggly into his shoulder, Lucas opens fire, first putting a bullet through the head of the SAW gunner before shifting to pick off another designated rifleman thinking he was sneaky from the doorway. {Heads up, Squad Leader, they're taking cover in the hallway beyond...well, it looks like another hallway at least. I know they're using the door way.} A couple of AR rounds ping off the SPARTAN-IV's shielding and he ducks briefly before popping back up and returning fire, missing the intended head shot and instead putting the bullet through the insurgent's shoulder.
Damian Gerard|Crocus City Proper



Damian nodded as he followed, his right hand absentmindedly stroking Carmilla's back. "Ya know, Crocus is a beautiful city, but I'd still almost rather be back on the border, in the wilds. You ever see a night sky without the light pollution before Ria?" Something important to keep in mind about the young mage is that if he wasn't thinking about a tactical approach to walking down the street, he was simply enjoying the sights to be seen around him. This was likely to catch someone's interest some day, but that certainly wasn't his concern.

"And there's so many more birds out there, and better fishing holes. Not to say the streams around Crocus aren't nice, but there's...there's not much variety to the fish. I'll have to take you and some o' the guild out there, maybe the border o' Bosco. That's some nice fishing."
Jack Goran|A Meeting of Masters, Old and New



Jack shook his head as he took his customary seat whenever he spoke with Jamie in her office and sat back, voicing his agreement with Jamie. "Indeed I don't believe any of the other masters will be showing. While we are all reliant on each other as much as the townsfolk that supply us jobs and payment for them, most of the other guilds are content to keep to themselves if they can. So it falls to us to share information and pass along what those who don't come hear." The Fire God Slayer then turned to Jamie, knowing that Jarvis would be by with tea for him soon enough.

"To answer the inevitable question, I was on the phone with Grane. In the desert regions, a convoy came under attack from a monster that had never been seen before. A contingent of Rune Knights, along with two of their prototype magitech armors, were sent to investigate and remove the threat to the trade routes. The Knights have not reported in, so a specialized request was sent to us."

Ammy Silver|An Emergency Request


Dragon Fang's guild hall was always loud and always busy, but when Ammy spoke, everyone fell silent as she approached the job board. "This is an emergency request from the Magic Management Council, and Master Jack has made it an S-Class job with permission for A-Class to accompany and support granted. Whoever is to go is to leave immediately and report back upon arrival and upon discovery of the condition of the missing contingent of Rune Knights and missing suits of Magitech armor." She then returned to her usual place at the bar and without hesitation, one of the other S-Class took the job.

Hunter Jorgenson|Call of the Wild


The Jade Dragon Slayer, without any kind of hesitation, approached the job board and pulled off the emergency request, reading it over. "Emergency Request: Mysterious Black Beast and Missing Knights...Alright, yeah, I'll handle this." He turned to his guildmates, all of whom were still silent and smiled his customary mischievous smile. "So, who wants to go save the Council's flunkies with me?"
Damian Gerard|Returning to Magnolia



As the band dispersed and went back to their daily lives for the time being, Damian offered an overly flourishing bow before heading off stage and over to his charge, miss Amelia Averyonna. Over the last couple of years, she and him had spent extensive time together even as he trained in Iaijutsu and Kenjutsu and she had enjoyed listening to the band's jam sessions and recordings when that was where he was to be found while Penny took care of her things. Checking that Andor was still secure in its sheathe after the performance, he joined her at her table, nodding and greeting a couple of other guild members. "You look like we might have woken you up. While I would normally apologize, you do realize how late it is, right?" Damian grinned and then produced a box of chocolates from the pack that he'd left sitting nearby and sliding it to her.

"Penny and I had to make a quick stop on the Isvanian border before heading back home, so I grabbed you a box of their famous chocolates. Hope you like 'em."

Jane Addeson|Within the Fabled Hall



As always, Jane had greatly enjoyed being on stage, shredding on guitar and the energy of the guild hall. When Damian had suggested they surprise the guild with the band's performance, she'd been iffy, but agreed. After having done so, she was glad she'd gone with the idea instead of against, as many in the guild were still talking excitedly. However, Jane had not missed the young mage known as Percival Grungust turn from a man into a woman named Elena Rainor. Moving quickly, the energy blade mage met her and appraised her. "You know, I had always thought something seemed off, since there were rumors about a Phoenix Wing mage partying at night, but to see you actually exist...Well, I think we need to have a talk with Master Jamie or Jarvis, whom are indisposed with a guild masters meeting."

James Avelane|A Pupil's Arrival



How the paladin had gotten roped in to playing bass for a band comprised of mages, he still wasn't sure, but Damian HAD made quite the convincing pitch to do so, and he already liked playing the instrument. Not to mention he and Damian swapped off being the singers, along with Jane. Once they had finished the one set that they'd all agreed to do, James had left the stage and originally intended to head back to his table to keep reading over his ancestor's journal, but the sight of Cody coming in earlier had him wanting to check in on the young man.

However, by the time James reached his pupil's side, Joshua had also walked in and seemed to be interrupting something between Cody and Amaya, which lead to a sudden tension as the paladin spoke, though why it happened was unclear. "Cody, Amaya, Joshua, good to see you all. Cody, how did your morning exercise go? Did you work on your incantations for your Light of the Protector? And Miss Amaya, how did your training camp go?" He waited a moment as he appraised the overworked muscles spasming lightly that he could see with Cody's attire before turning to Joshua. "And your job, Joshua? I trust you didn't overextend yourself any."

Jake Ronan|Winning the Bout



Between Pyrhha's encouragement and the fact that Hunter wasn't all in on the fight for once, Jake came out on top, knocking the Dragon Slayer into the edge of the ring for a ring-out victory before he went to join his girlfriend. As he approached, he stretched his arms to their fullest and then let them fall to his side, sliding into the seat next to Pyrhha. "I might have won, but we're still going somewhere expensive, I can swing it. What are you feelin' tonight? Steak, fish, shawarma?"
