Episode 5: Bolts & Nuts & Interviews

Rest and Relaxation is adjoined with the respite of responsibilities. Our heroes have left to take in their downtime by catching up with friends, replenishing their items, upgrading their airship, taking on additional missions, and hiring new crew members!   Wait... this is considered downtime?! Masami and Iliren went to rent a boat to go fishing in the Eternal Seas, learning more bout one another and strengthening their kinship. Meeting with old friends and catching up with work until they're needed for crew interviews.  

The Missions Never Stop...

  The Commanders have taken another mission, aiding the STEPP military in tracking down and destroying a rogue construct that left the desecrated land of their former base. They found the construct in an abandoned outpost near the black veil that surrounds Fuhrendierr. Upon fighting the construct, they learn it was capable of enslaving the souls of its victims to use in combat. But with luck and good fortune, the commanders were able to put down the construct before it could do any more damage, freeing the innocent souls it had claimed.   While most would be relaxing in a 5 star hotel, Dai and Silas had taken upon themselves to take on some high IQ missions. Using Masami's temple, they teleported to Buulta in order tackle the mysterious sword reforge quest. Instructions were left behind in a riddle by the sword's creator and the smallest mistake could be the death of the average man! But through trial and error, they were able to forge the blade anew and earned respect by the hiring nobleman.   Upon their return to the Seven Springs, they made a pit stop in the frontier town Petraglaus, where they were asked to safely solve a mysterious wall with text and pictures. Two heads are always better than one, and the two solved the ancient text in half the time- revealing a new tunnel for the miners to explore!  

Welcome to the Team!

  Weeks later, as promised by Katrun, potential crew members were found that she deemed capable for crew roles. While she wasn't able to find someone for everyone, she found the best of the best (be it price or skill) and left the final decision to the commanders.
