KMega6KMegacharacter and Silent talked for nearly an hour about things they never did in IRL.
The public tournament they were in, who they were and what they did in-game, and how their current situation came to be. They also talked about their individual plans for the time being.
In truth, they could have talked even longer, but KMega suddenly felt uneasy as he thought about what Astrid7Astridcharacter felt considering he was spending time with another woman. However, all KMega knew was that this island is ‘his’ domain and the extension of Astrid’s. There was also a small area under them where Eastguard was originally that was granted to him through his Dukedom. Thousands of new inhabitants consisting of former companions lived in this Fallen Hill like area. Unlike Astrid, they were abused and enslaved. If KMega had to guess, the actual number of companions who were probably treated like this is only a fraction of that number. Silent, among others, had started taking quests to help free these companions, causing hostility towards their former owners. To KMega, this meant two things; headaches and a** pains. Deep down, KMega swore to himself he was going to kill that Bishop the next time he sees him.
While Lazar ran around like a male rabbit in a pit of females, KMega assumed that Astrid went back to the lair to make sure no one entered uninvited. To the few NPC’s he knew, he informed them that there will be an assembly later to address the confusion.
He then went to the church to get a soup line started.
When KMega saw Berry with multiple sets of wings and without her disguise, he was rather shocked. She was angry and joyful when she saw him and said, “By the high heavens, where have you been? I needed to inform you of the developments hours ago. The longer we wait, the more likely chaos will ensue.” (Berry)
KMega blinked and scratched his cheek in confusion.
He didn’t know when, but he couldn’t stop himself from doing such cliche mannerisms.
“I went over to the Silent Merc guild and hired them as temporary guards and do odd jobs. We then went to some of the business owners to see about pitching in for a soup line.” (KMega)
Berry blinked. She honestly didn’t expect that he was trying to get ahold of the situation.
“Fair enough. Now, since this situation happened on your behalf, the gods seem to think that you should get some support from the church, but they’re as late as usual. There is still a lot of cleanup to do after the demon war, after all. First, I wish to discuss the island…” (Berry)
To summarize, the island is roughly a large half-sphere about ten to twelve square miles long. In the center of the island was a square mile of blank space being developed into a town. Outside of it, there is a little more than five square miles of farmland and about two miles of woodlands. It’s Spring right now, but since Summer is just around the corner, they needed to start planting wheat and corn. The population went from a mere 160 to over 5,000 overnight. A lot of the people were scared and confused since they want nothing more than to find a nice place to hide. Most the population were adults, but there are some children who were companions or the children of them and their abusive owners. The people that weren’t companions were stuck with helping them and about to be attacked by the players that went after their freed ‘slaves’.
It also wasn’t entirely his contribution that led to this situations, but he did pay for the island himself.
As for the finer things about the island, like how it floats or how to control it, these are things the church handles. KMega kept to himself and didn’t pursue it any further, but he did ask how to get down when he wants to. Along with the portal at the Dark Sky Brood, they can now transport down below with the formation in his lair. He did ask them to put it in a more public area since he knew that dragon4dragonspeciess don’t like strangers strolling into their homes uninvited.
