An old place, out in the woods beyond the city

Post by Suibhne O Finn on Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:31 pm

Suibhne makes his way back to his main haven after the meeting with Becks, smiling at the way things turn out. He switches his cloths for a very dark, very long robe and cloak, a hood attached, and sturdy boats. He heads out of the city, beyond the ways, taking familiar but secret underground pathways, heading into the woods and an old forgotten temple after the directions given him by the salubri.

The wind blows thru the cherry blossoms. The temple is in surprisingly good shape...there is a sense of both peace and foreboding.

You feel as though watched.

Pause, take in the scent of the blossoms. In a relaxed, slightly amused tone, speak, "I can sense your presence, whomever may be watching. Come, join me under this lovely tree. I can wait."

This beautiful white furred nine tailed fox walks into the area. Jumping into a pile of petals, this woman? Pops out.

Suibhne takes off his hood to reveal his blue tinged white skin, replies in the same tongue. "Not so much lost, fox spirit, but in search of enlightenment. I came to this ancient place because I was directed here with that in mind."

Sit down again, "no intrusion, I value any new encounter and opportunity to learn. Tell me, you say that the temple rarely gets visitors. That is a shame, it looks fascinating. Is it just forgotten?"

She looks at you oddly.
"Have you been sleeping the sleep of old ones? Much has changed in the world. Most do not dare venture outside the walls though that was true enough before for the ghet of Cayne. I am Kitsune, werefox. I have no quarrel." she puts up a hand.

Suibhne nods, "I am one of the stolen, partially cainite and partially fae. I have been asleep, as you say, from time to time, but as a naturally born immortal, my mind and body do not require those periods of rest to the same extent as the mortals. Also, I have only relatively recently come this far east from my birth nation. It is the changeability of mortals which concerns me these nights though and the seeming disappearance of the kue-jin."

At these words the silence is broken by a howling wind, swirling the petals in the air, your companion yips, turns into a fox and runs off.
Forming into a man this steps forth.

"You dare speak of us, gaejin?"
He asks haughtily his head high.
"What pray tell, have you to do with the kuejin?"

"I dare many things kuejin. The disappearance of your kind has, I think, caused an in-balance in the mortals."

He chuckles.
"Hassss it? I see you are a creature very much concerned with balance."
He considers.
"And what would you consider to be the solution to this imbalance as you put it? Will you be the one to, bring balance to the force?"

"First I would need to uncover the reasons for the disappearance of your kind. Then, determine if it was a natural or unnatural occurance. Then explore the possibilities of amendment."

He frowns.
"I don't much care for your serious mein. Do you not know? It is the kinjin using their disciplines that disrupts the flow of chi. We stood as guardians of the jade kingdom until the Emperor opened the gates to the outsiders. The one you people called Saulot spoke of the outside world and the kindred in it. It was only a matter of time until the ghet of Kayne would over run the earth, bringing corruption in their wake. Most have retreated to worlds beyond this one. A few of us remain as we feel it is preferable to walk this world. Does this answer your question, (chinese word for half breed) ?" he leers.

Suibhne considers the words, "but that is merely a pro hoc ergo propter hoc argument. Left unchallenged the kin-jin would grow in population until naturally culled again by the mortals. The kin-jin are part of a cycle; the kue-jin were a balancing force. Why did the kue-jin not increase in number to combat the imbalance? This, I think, is the equation that needs resolution."

Suihbne adopts his old scholarly pose. "Let me try to explain. Each variety of supernatural being - the unnatural in your words - has a place in the wider cosmology beyond their own individual view of the world or their place in it. I have studied what mortals called the big picture. You have to think beyond your small picture. We are all put of a cosmic jigsaw puzzle and, even with one piece missing ultimate destiny cannot be fulfilled. I came to the revelation that my being stolen must have played some wider purpose and I came to believe that it was to understand a higher truth."

Suibhne raises an eyebrow in bemusement. He waits a moment to see if the werefox will return and, if not, carry on toward the old temple.

"Done and done."
Wow You perhaps should have known better.
Must have been your over confidence at work.
Sparkling silver and gold shiny particles stream forth from your orrifices into a ball which it takes.
Suddenly the world is a duller more banal place, what is the point?, you've seen it all before..even as your knowledge of the natural world and its processes expands and you gain insight into enlightenment. Perhaps the chase was more gratifying than the finding?



You  gain the state of enui and the flaw lazy. You may work towards removing these issues.
However,
You also gain lore Golcanda 3 as enlightenment fills your mind its so clear now as well knowledge science is raised to 5.
Golcanda seeker merit achieved.

The Kami swirls in the air smiling.

Suibhne narrows his eyes, frowning then smiling as the knowledge filters into his consciousness. "It seems that I have indeed. I have gained and learned an important lesson. You have my thanks kami spirit."

It nods, you are taking this better than it anticipated.
"Enjoy."
It leaves a small toy represenation of itself behind for you.
And swirls off leaving you alone with your thoughts.

...
...
...
You hear a growl. You see four sets of eyes in the darkness, wolf like but bigger than any wolf has business being.
Your lycanthropy lore indicates they are in a dire wolf form.
What you can tell, their fur patterns and coloration seem to be the dreaded Red Talons who hate man.
But they have not yet attacked.
One moves forward the others do not move but are in a formation..

Suibhne picks up the toy, smiling. Then turns to address the Red Talon, "I seek knowledge for the sake of my people; I protect the interests of the fae; I advocate for the mortals in the immortal courts."
