Banished Legacy [Rich & Eteru] Empty Banished Legacy [Rich & Eteru]

on Mon Nov 16, 2020 1:07 pm
Along the edges of an etherway within the south eastern parts of the galaxy, along the outskirts of several civilisations but not passing into said territories, masses of asteroids of near planetary sized carelessly meander through the ether drift.

On one of the larger asteroids, nested deep in a cloud of ether, was a crashes vessel. A massive star ship of an intricate design, largely magical in its construction though all power from the vessel has ebbed away after the many eons waiting to be found. The vessel itself was buried halfway into the rocky surface, the rear end still visible though charting the dense debris field and strange magical storms would be treacherous for any smaller ship or ill prepared science ship.

That being said, vessel was nearby, a Ketch from the House of Vengeance, a small faction that is relatively unknown to the major civilisations out in the eastern galay besides murmurs and chatter from merchants stating they would jump in to save merchant vessels being ambushed by pirates. Often painting them as righteous aliens with a grudge against salvers and pirates alike.

The Ketch hung above the asteroid, its shields and point defense weapons fending against the strange magical storms and larger chunks of debris drifting too close to the ship and any Skiff's they send down to the ruined vessel...

The dense hazards of this asteroid field made setting up a gravity lift site or a transporter site has been ill advised. All the chaos of it would damage their ship and likely kill anyone who went down... So they would construct a semi-long term base camp so they could gather up useful materials, salvage and whatever intel they can from the wreck.

So the Baroness incharge, Dycan Bron, took it upon herself to lead her people in the search of this vessel...

-----[Makeshift landing zone]-----

Amongst broken rocks, shades of brown and maroon after an area had been carved out in the rockface to make setting up a base easier, a mishmash of cargo crates and defensive emplacements and sensory equipment were set up to make sure that they would not be jumped by opportunistic pirates, Apex aggressors or just hapless scavers thinking they were easy pickings.

A heavy presence of Foot Soldiers littered the defensive emplacements, keeping watch as Skiffs landed to start dropping off excavation teams and precious materials on their long haul home back to the Flotilla.  Amongst the teams was the leader, the Baroness incharge.

Standing some 10ft tall, a tone muscled form barely hidden under a light blue bodysuit below her armoured plating and what appeared to be a heavily furred black pelt around her neck and draped down across her shoulder,  doing well to obscure the hidden weapons and special gear she kept on her person during away missions like these. She looked up, being dwarfed by the immense craft still some ways away from them since building the camp too close would make evacuating incase of emergency inconvenient.

The Baroness turned to the Journeyman responsible for setting up the camp, greeting her with a respectful bow. "My Baroness, I have the teams ready to start the operation. Would you like me to prepare a squad for you before you depart inside?"

Her azure eyes study the Journeyman for a moment before giving a slow nod, her gaze returning to the odd ship in the distance.

The description is pretty accurate... A vessel of a similar design was where our Kell of Kells received his gift and brought back a miracle to our people... I hope to find another piece of that miracle back to my Kell with this mission.

"Journeyman Obsan. Begin the operation!" With a single declaration, the anxious crews quickly scramble to work, moving in Skiffs to land atop the structure to look for a way in that way while teams move on foot to find a way inside along the bottom.

The frontier has always appealed to the ancient heart of a Tesom. The long roll of abyssal silence. The ceaseless flow of ether through the void. A cosmic clock in which one tick will span countless generations. A yawning abyss of time. Only a few could ever hope to grasp a glimmer of that weight. Of just how long it truly is.

A Tesom or rather the only Tesom, Ananka gazes out into the swirling patterns of the Ethersea. A normal scenery to her by now. For she has been sailing this new sea of stars for roughly two millenia. Having arrived with other lucky few from another universe, Auinozoaun.

For all of her titles, for all of her conquests, for all of her milestones. Outliving creation itself made them all pale in comparison. She is proud of the legacy she paved in Auinozoaun. And knew that her late father would be proud of her.

Now, in a fresh and young universe, she is one of the few to attain the privilege of starting a new legacy. A chance that she would be utterly foolish to let it slip between her fingers. Now, there was a period of pondering in the beginning. Of what should be her new goal.

This galaxy, Hoshizora was also young. Never has she seen such a young batch of civilizations for a long while. It rather fascinated her. For once she found herself motivated to just simply explore. To see what riches this galaxy has to offer.

For a time she kept herself busy. Things became interesting in the last thousand years. A power rose in the east, taking on a disciple, and became involved in affairs that have been going for a long time. Then one day she was brought forward to him by her own disciple.

Even before she ever laid eyes on him she had felt his presence across the stars. Hard not to when someone like herself has seen and experienced many things to feel it. Transverse to places that none could ever imagined, witness cosmic beings that represent abstract ideas, traveled through lands of death and arcane. In which she met even stranger things.

Lincoln Zvonimir. A slumbering leviathan in a sea of plankton. She could feel the power behind his eyes. Glimpse the things he could do. It was the power that her power had sought to balance the universe. And here he was, using it to enhance their activities in the bedroom.

Her now former disciple was right. He bore no ambition. That even with all his power at his beck and call he wasn’t blinded by it as another person would. Humility is a decent trait sure, but this was too far. He needed someone like herself to serve him. To show him the things he is capable of. Thus it was only natural she did just that. Cementing their union in acts of passion.

In the weeks that followed she had stuck around Lincoln. Getting to know others like herself who have seen the potential within Lincoln. Then they gradually split off. Some heading back to their usual routine and others seek out opportunities to bring fame and glory to Lincoln. Even beings of great power, such as her late father, needed servants to carry out his grand plan. Especially when someone like Lincoln is young in his development, meaning his capabilities are nowhere near a silver of his power.

As such she had set off into the stars with a newfound purpose. While her lord may now have a personal army on his payroll from the Zerg. It never hurts to accumulate more assets. On this frontier she searches for anything that could serve as a good boon for them. A fairly easy endeavor, it’s not the first time and certainly won’t be the last in finding resources.

Seated within her personal starcraft she has been flying around the outskirts of civilization. A few blips pop up on her radar. A cluster of asteroids it seems. And what appears to be aliens trying to unearth a buried ship. It wasn’t that noteworthy to her. Lincoln deserves much more than old scrap metal.

Of course she knows the importance of leaving no stone unturned. Shifting gears she shifted course to the cluster of asteroids. On her right gauntlet a red stone gave a glow. A red aura washed over her ship. Turning it invisible to that ship's sensors.

Landing silently on one of the different asteroids she left her ship. Fairly capable of breathing in the raw ether. She cloaked herself invisible as well before she teleported over to the asteroid of importance. Getting on top of a rock outcropping to overlook the makeshift landing area below. For now she will wait and watch the aliens to see what they’re up to.

All on the asteroid were not aware of the new arrival just yet, Ananka's stealth tech being far more advanced than the amalgamated and scavenged tech of the House of Vengeance regularly employ since churning out new tech from their Forge ships eats up plenty of resources that should go into fleet upkeep.

From what she could observe from her vantage point on an outcropping away from the base, she could see at least 11 teams of these aliens that consist of around 15 people each all scouting the hull of the vessel. Three of the teams looked to have grouped up and started to breach into the main superstructure from an airlock they found, likely a maintenance airlock.

The entire vessel reeked of magical energy, the strength of it was minor though. To quantify it, it has the magical strength of around a hundred human mages, so not truly powerful but still a headache if it decided to be volatile. Though their was a presence with the superstructure, different to the magic energies out here...

Though in observing that, a new Skiff was coming in. Landing only one new alien. This one was large like the female leader, but clearly it was a male of the species. This one harboured magical energy, a strong affinity that was remarkably like the presence within the ship. It would seem that this individual may be whatever is within the ship...

As the strange male was dropped off, the Baroness looked back to see them in surprise. "Fabled Guard... Yuta was it? Why have you left the ship? I thought you would just be advising us on our quest?"

The Fabled guard kept his gaze directed up and out of the camp, he did not answer immediately though he did once he paced himself over to the Baroness. "I apologise for coming down unannounced, this is very much your quest. My Kell had wished me to merely watch over you and assure your safe return... Though for a moment I could have sworn I detected a magical presence other than the ships dormant energies. I could be incorrect with all these magical storms about... But I still say we should be careful proceeding. Their may be other parties around."

The Baroness looked sceptical of the twitchy light bearer, though she was not a fool to not listen to wary council. Out here they would be targets for smaller craft and pirates who know how to use the terrain. Though that is why she set up this base site, so they have a way of detecting sudden uninvited parties. "You worry too much Yuta. How about you accompany me inside? With your help we may be able to find our prize faster."

The Fabled Guardsman gave a soft sigh as he took the faceplate from his helmet, breathing in the raw ether around them with a look of relief on his face. "My mission was just to observe your progress... But I suppose some light participation can be overlooked since this mission is of great importance. Lead the way." With a hearty laugh, Baroness Dycan started to walk with the Fabled guard in tow towards the vessels breach point the teams had made. Eager to move inside and start to plunder what would be useful to the House of Vengeance and their future.

The sight was fairly interesting in comparison to other mysteries that Hoshizora has given to her in the past. The general chatter was typical of a race so young. Using a term such as magic to describe the invisible intricacies of the universe is a staple of their understanding so far. She can’t blame them for using what is an easy word to describe things that can’t be understood with their level of technology.

There wasn’t much of a need to make herself known just yet. With a ship this big she can very easily undertake her own investigation. Power ran up her arm as a stone activated. Taking a step to slip through the fabric of space to transport herself inside the ship away from the air lock.

She wasn’t too concerned about herself. Having had gone through numberless derelict vessels in the past. Her thoughts are however are on the group that just went inside the section with the breach. Using the advanced tech in her helmet to keep tabs on them. Who knows, they may prove to be possible worthy subjects. That was enough for her to keep paying attention.

The group that just entered the breach had around 45 members, though those quickly broke down into smaller groups of at least 5 all scrabbling off into different parts of the ship. These teams mostly consisted off 3 Foot soldiers, 1 gatecrasher who were demo experts and 1 Gladiator who were taking leadership roles for this operation. Usually they are close combat fighters.

There was one small team to note though, a team that stuck together likely out of familiarity. The Gladiator was larger than most of the others of her outfit, being around 8ft tall to their usual 7. Around her was the normal team build with the other Foot soldiers and the Gatecrasher of a similar build but only around the 6ft mark. The Gladiator was leading her team through some broken down maintenance halls towards a security checkpoint, the others around her moving to check for other lifesigns in the ship.

"We have nothing big on radars Ma'am. We are picking up some strange signals, but that could just some asteroid dwelling beast. There are afew but they're weak, either sleeping or small lifeforms..." One of the veteraned Foot soldiers reports as she keeps her rifle steady down the hall towards a set of large metal doors.

The Gladiator nodded wordlessly before she looked to a side space close to the metal doors, seeing that it stretched into two different rooms. Raising her scattergun in one arm she motioned for them to move slowly with two keeping watch. Stacking up at the T-junction her and the Gatecrasher breach in both directions. One room had a security terminal and several other terminals within, with the mummified remains of a human skeleton within. "Urta, get that door open... Garth. Get this body ready for last rites and tell a team to come cet them. We'll leave them out in the hall."

One of the Foot soldiers, Urta, came in after the leader to start working on getting the blast doors open. "Yes Ma'am..."

The Gladiator stepped out into the hall, the Gatecrasher walking out from behind her. "Likely not the only body we'll find Krella. What do you think these humans were doing out here?"

Krella looked back down the hall to see one of the Foot soldiers wrapping the body in fabrics to get them ready for last rites, her eyes narrowing as she made a Insect like chittering sound with her mouth. "Unsure... The way this ship crashed... And the damage it looked like it had out on the hull suggests it was shot down. Just like the last ship our Kell found. Someone really didn't like who lived here... Who's team is heading to the bridge?"

"Journeyman Obsan was assembling a team of Operatives to handle that... I think his name was Lannek Scela." The Gatecrasher answered, watching as the metal doors starts to screech open slowly, time doing them no favours.

"We have a member from a larger clan amongst us? Along with that Fable Guard from the Badlam Clan we have famous blood amongst our clanless numbers." She says aloud as a fabric wrapped body was propped up against the wall behind them. The team reassembling as the large doors opened up to what looked like a massive interior space ... Surprisingly an interior shield was still active, keeping a atmosphere within...

The team stepped inside, the most surprising of all is that they could hear the chirping of avian lifeforms with the sight of them zipping around overhead. "I think we found your lifeforms Footman... To think life was still existing here after so long."

It was a sight to be sure. A ship like this wasn’t something one would see in Hoshizora. Perhaps this place could be promising after all. Remaining aware of the group that have also entered this spacious part of the ship. She went off to do her own exploration. Taking note of anything that looks worthwhile for further inspection.

The place could very well serve a variety of purposes for the greater cause. However the issue at hand is dealing with the other explorers of this large wreck. Normally it would have been a simple feat as sweeping dirt off the floor. Now that her goals are no longer self-serving she has to think ahead. So she can’t go about this as she used to.

In the end it seems she would have to cross paths with them eventually. That too is not a concern either. Holding those thoughts off for now she continues her survey of the area. Giving closer attention to anything that she found.

A number of mummified remains littered this once pristine atrium of sorts, rather large in taking up a good bulk of the ships interior space from the looks of it... Likely some sort of mobile paradise for some occult group. From Ananka's investigating, being able to see afew more teams make it to lower levels of this atrium area in the distance.

On the upper levels, across the large interconnecting walkways, were large rooms filled with what a live ship needed. A hydroponics bay, that the birds have fully taken oven in a large colony with fruit bearing trees that they seem to live off of, to a large entertainment suit with more than afew arcane apparatuses of different purpose gathering dust. Afew other large rooms that contained a library and even a museum of sorts full of cultural artifacts... One of which was a painting of a race of these humanoids, seeming to be Vulpine in nature conquering a people of another race... Though in the sky was a depiction of a multi headed serpent looming above. There were other magical artifacts within on display, though few were in as good condition as the painting.

The distant sounds of the teams did not seem to grow any closer, the younger races seemingly content with exploring for the time being. Seeing as they likely believe that they are the only ones here, they have no sense of urgency.

Though she does feel the presence of something in the room with her, it wasn't alive... Though it was deathless. "It's been quite some time since we have had a visitor here, though you are not like the young ones below." Chirps up a featureless humanoid figure. Seems to be whatever these people had n place of artificial intelligence, an arcane approximation anyways.

It’s rather odd for the remains to be mummified and not already picked apart by the wildlife. Indicating that perhaps they weren’t around for very long. Keeping up her pace she gave the other teams a wide berth in her exploration. Whatever this ship may be it has some importance for so many to come here. A shame she might have to shake them out of here like rodents. Of course that would warrant if this place was valuable enough to do so. It won’t do if she brings home a lackluster find.

The library and museum were very much a lovely find. Given her lifetime she greatly adheres to the importance of history. So much has been lost in the closing chapters of Auinozoaun. Terminus Respite, while by no means lacking in its archive, is a drop in the ocean compared to how much has been done in Auinozoaun across the eons. With the stars first fading away an uncountable amount of nations and cultures went away with them.

A spell of nostalgia befell on her. It felt like yesterday when she first took off from Angelarium. Ascending into a new firmament. It was a thrilling moment. Not many have done what she did. As she mused she looked over the artifacts. She spared no visible reaction to the sudden appearance of the humanoid construct. Looking over to it in a nonchalant manner. “So it seems. A pity it has been left untouched for some time.” She casually remarked. Looking over to the picture with the hydra like figure. “I take it you’re a part of the ship systems?”

"What systems are still functional, yes." The amorphous Arcane intelligence states as they place their hands behind their back, standing by the side of this interesting visitor. "I control most of the systems now since the other constructs collapsed a long time ago. A crashed ship has no need for engines, weapons, navigation and shields. So everything is funneled into environmentals, life support, archived data and hydroponics. Plus some automated golems to keep things repaired... Though that doesn't help with my projectors"

Despite the faceless visual Ananka could still feel its gaze on her as it tilts to look at her. "Though enough about me. Is there anything I can help you with?"

Upon some thought she then spoke to the construct. “Would it be an issue if I were to transport both the museum and library elsewhere? It would be a shame if I were to leave all this to the whims of those below. I know of those who would make better use of these. Beyond that I like to know about the history of the ship.” It did mention it had powered to the archives so it was safe to assume it would yield valuable Intel.

If granted the green light (Granted she didn’t need its permission under normal circumstances but felt it was too little to make a fuss over if it didn’t) the red stone within her right gauntlet shone. The contents within both rooms gave off a scarlet sheen before disappearing without a trace. The contents being safely stored away. Most weren’t too noticeable to be of use directly. Regardless she knows there are other ways to squeeze use out of them. For instance they could be used to start building recognition with the Aztecha company. Ties are often more valuable than gold after all.

The constructed... Looked surprised, at the very least it put effort into making its body language reflect the tone of its voice "All of it? That would be quite the feat. Though as long as they are preserved I have no real quarrel with it. One less task for me to undertake for the time being until I am of use once more."

With its green light, the constructed watches and senses the contents of the library and the rest of museum vanish from the premises. Quite a notable shift in space, something that was very noticeable by the other party's magic user. "My word, you're quite skilled to have moved so much at once. Some of the artifacts were not something that could easily moved..."

Though now the construct looked back to Ananka with her question, it seemed to go silent several seconds. Likely putting together an explanation that would not bore the visitor enough to disappear as quickly as she came. Though the intelligence did have other guests that could be entertained, the younger races were not as knowledgeable as they were inquisitive. This one could better grasp the knowledge then those below.

"Well I suppose I should start at the beginning. My creators were a race known as the...-" A moment flashes with the constructs form fluctuating uncontrollably before it corrected itself, while it's voice was an inaudible groan before it seemed to continue like nothing happened. "-A splinter faction of the population that submitted the the Athailian 'saviors' as they liked to call themselves. We sought to preserve our culture, so we set off into space. Ignoring the warnings of the foolish aliens." It looks like time has left much more than the constructs projectors in disrepair... A good portion of history seems to be lost here. Though the contents of the library and what could be gleaned from the artifacts she recovered should piece together the missing pieces.

"In secret we constructed vessels, hiding away our plundered treasures we had won in glorious combat against the unworthy. What you have recovered were just some of the relics of our victories. Though others, like that painting, depict the founding of our righteous order. And others tell of our glorious mission given unto us by our lord."

"These vessels were referred to as 'Vault ships' the pinnacle of our arcane technology and military might. They would house our artifacts, safeguard our next generations and serve as beacons of the true way to live." The faceless construct took a moment to look around at the bodies around them. "Or at least. That is how it was supposed to pan out. We were to gain strength and test the Athailians for our god. Though they found us first, chased us across the cosmos and made sure we could not test others as we have many times before... There were survivors but as per the final protocol they all initiated the ritual like I mentioned before." The Construct mentioned no such thing.

Once upon a time she would have been amused by the display of shock at the sight of her power. Now however she felt nothing from the praise. But for what it’s worth. She does prefer the acknowledgment of her prowess. It makes things go by quicker when one can understand the chasm between her and them. Standing in her way is a moot endeavor. Especially when they try to stand between her and her goal.

Ananka simply gave a light shrug at the remark. “Reality can be whatever I want.” Storing small things like the relics and tomes was a small feat for her. If she wanted to she could have done more. Yet she felt there was no need for it. She has long learned to preserve her strength, no matter how little. One can never be too cautious in a wild universe.

The abnormalities of the lecture were suspicious. The telltale signs of someone or something wanting to keep hidden are clear. Giving a small huff she responded to the construct, “I’ve heard of old tales similar in nature. Once one lives long enough they can see the patterns around them. And I can glimpse one such pattern here. Before I continue is there someplace where we can continue this discussion? No doubt the younglings will take note of my flexing.” It would be a small annoyance after all to be interrupted by children.

The construct turns their head o the side, no doubt seeing through other means of surveillance where those of the younger race were scurrying around before giving a suggestion of where they can speak in private... The number of places they were allowed to go or could access places that were not either caved in with refuse of made inaccessible thanks to rocks were limited. Though these new aliens had only discovered 8% total of the ship.

"The Bridge will suit our needs. The ones below will not be able to reach there within the hour. It will take them a full day to reach it on foot without some assistance. Shall I open a portal there?"

There were some other places the Construct could have suggested, but her directives forbid her from revealing the ritual site. It was the last chance of the creators after all and jeopardizing it meant automated deletion.

The construct told her one thing. But the shadows told another. Its synthetic lines enshroud a secret untold. One dripping with the ghost of bloodshed. Another piece to the puzzle of this once slumbering mystery. Ananka kept her nonchalant posture. There was no desire in her to pick at the lock. At least not yet anyways. She needs to glean the value of the unspoken truth to determine the need to do so. These tend to harbor interconnecting threads to other things. And one must know getting into it is worth the effort. “The Bridge it is then, we may use a portal.” A needless gesture. But one she felt to concede.

The Bridge is a good place to head to for any ship. It’s the place where authority rests and dictates the rest of the ship as if it were a brain. If she ever wishes to follow through her half formed ideas of closing her hand over the ship. That would be the place to do it. Her thoughts went back to the young below. She could imagine them crawling around. Chittering among each other in curiosity and fascination. Perhaps a bit ignorant of how the walls were whispering. But all children are like that. Her love, Lincoln, is still young in a sense. While by mortal standards they consider him a fully grown adult. But to the ageless eyes that peer between the stars. He’s very, very young. In that light she felt protective of him. He’s like the children who tread over once quiet soil below her. Still not wise enough to see the truth in things. So very vulnerable.

With her agreement, the Construct hastily opened a site to site portal to the bridge for Ananka, once through the shimmering silver doorway with it closing behind her she would step into a blackened room that would slowly light up with what little life the husk she now stood in could spare. Leaving the younger races to scamper and explore the history all around them... Though one amongst them was more wary than the rest.

The bridge was largely hexagonal in shape, with it in a descending pyramid architecture with the command chair at the top with three descending rows of command consoles, tactical controls and defensive system overlays all below it in descending order of important. With officers at the top and lowly orderlies at the bottom. This roomed lacked any skeletal or mummified remains unlick the rest of the ship.

As the consoles flickered on, the featureless construct once again appeared before Ananka, arms behind their back as they looked down upon the bridge. "Here we are. We should have plenty of breathing room to speak before worrying about being interrupted... I believe you had more to ask?"

Banished Legacy [Rich & Eteru] Empty Re: Banished Legacy [Rich & Eteru]

Yesterday at 7:12 pm
Ananke breathed in the sterilized air. Her gaze swept over the empty bridge. Its seats and stations sit in silence as it has for many years. “Just recite to me more of its history, of its culture and stories.” She sauntered around the bridge. The old sense of sonder flickers within her as she muse on the sort of souls that once manned these stations. Every living being is unique, a one of a kind event that can never happen again.

She also ponders on what she has learned thus far. There’s quite a bit of history within these hulls. And from the sounds of it. Its history is not a clean one. Perhaps it would be best to hollow it out. Give the intestines to Aztecha for them to comb through. While she repurposed the rest of the carcass for other possible uses. Perhaps as a special place for private affairs. Working outside the line and hiding it is always a tricky specialty to master.
