Aniir, Apostle and Aide to the Grand Marshal

Aniir was swept away by the man, in the opposite direction of what she believed the direction the Grand Marshal's office was.

"Isn't the Grand Marshal's office that direction?" She said pointing over her shoulder.

"AH, but it is." Kaiden said whimsically. "However, you and I have someplace more important to be at the moment." He was steering her towards the stairway which led to the fifth floor where his quarter just happened to reside.

"So about that name..." He said into her ear, seductively.

"Aniir..." She said nervously, glancing over her shoulder.

You can always add me in game and troll for my arrival!

((This is absolutly perfect! Il work stuff with that, and contact you once I'm over. Mind if I keep the trinket even after giving the book back? Who knows if I could use help in a sticky situation. Also, as for the name and title, no biggie XD Nobody asked mine so far, which has made my raise an eyebrow a bit))

BUT if you and others feel that the RP does not need it, I can change the post to events less major and more character related than plot related, but I still intend on showing off a bit of the Xyphernati RP side with my posts! Up to you guys though. ))

(( Just to give you a heads up on what I am thinking of, think conspiracy alongside betrayal, to eventual death perhaps of my character, but in the end the RP will not need to end, rather a new beginning. ))
I would like to make this abundantly clear to everyone. Leona is staying in the NMR's keep. I have plans for the main storyline that require this. I only have one rule!

((I'm absolutely fine with you keeping the trinket, and you're probably right in thinking that it could come in handy sometime.))

I was on my way back from the NyandeLegion after securing some cargo for him for one of the machines he is making when the bandits shot down the zeppelin"
Andersworth scoffed in his throat. "Very well, Lukan," he said, as he motioned for one of the nearer soldiers over to them, "Stay low, and try not to die. After we secure your zeppelin, you will return with me and speak to the Ambearsador." When the man arrived, he took up a position to watch Lukan. Letting out a roar, Andersworth leaped over the rocks, running towards the bandits. A couple of them had fell and others were looking tired. His brothers were relatively unharmed, although some of the bears had some cuts where they had been grazed by bullets and cut with the bandit's swords.

Remembering how long it's been since he was in combat, and the demeaning task of making some tea for the Ambearsador, Andersworth charged up at the bandits, catching one in the stomach with his claws, channeling his magic through them and bypassing the chain vest..and the rock he was hiding behind, actually. Unfortunately, some of the bandits started to recognize his cloak. It was made of a special material that seemed to exist but not exist. You could tell it was there, but at the same time, it was hard to really see it. He's worn it since he became a knight, as it wa- ...Andersworth looked down, apparently he got distracted thinking about the past and some bandit tried to stab a sword through his armor.

Chuckling deep in his throat, he looked down on the average sized man, who was, in turn, staring at his completely bent blade. Forming a fist, Andersworth knocked the man to the side, and stared about him. A couple of the bandits were struggling to stand, but his brothers were going around and knocking them out. "Right, remember to keep as many alive as possible, we need to figure out where they keep coming from, and that means we need to interrogate them." He said, then started walking down to Lukan, "as for you, you get the honour of heading to see the Ambearsador. And don't worry about your cargo, my brothers will stay here and, when we get to the keep, there will be more sent out to retrieve it."

Holding out a paw, Andersworth started drawing on his magic to teleport them both to the throne room as soon as Lukan grabbed hold.

((No problems. Im actualy nowhere near the Imperium's area, so it's not gonna happen anytime soon. Also, we may be much more advanced in the story once it happens, because right now I have very little of my actual "personnal NPCs" squad with me and/or available at the Keep. Most of 'em are deployed through areas with missions il RP as the story unfolds.))

You guys are free to continue your plan in the Nyandaregion, as Morello did approve of this.
((I won't really argue with this chapter, since you made it explicitly clear that you'll use the poll to shape future events for this chapter. And I don't really want to call an all out accusation at rigging the poll, since that would be baseless.

But for future chapters, shouldn't you base yourself more on the actual RPer's actions, events and texts? The biggest issue I have with the current poll is how two options can literally contradict themselves in simple votes, yet they will work out in an RPed context: NMR has the choice (and it's winning, despite the fact that from the actor's point of view so far it's not a very explored possibiliy) to assault and suppress the NM before to conducts an alliance with IsC, and the IsC has the choice to ally themselves with the IsC, which obviously must happen before they are eradicated. What happens if both of these options win?))

((EDIT: I don't want to be overcritising or saying your doing bad work, I certainly wouldn't have pulled off such a nice thread. But some of the execution does concern me, and considering nothing's perfect, there's always room for improvement.))

((2nd EDIT: Upon closer inspection to the poll, both parties' interaction with the Nikasaur Manifest is winning. So what happens? Does the NMR wipe TNM? Or do they form an alliance with IsC and live? This is what I meant.))
