Seeing the cyborg point at Alexander and not understanding what he said, makes him realize that he really needs a universal translator.

Radecliffe looks at @Palach and says, "Maybe you should ask this guy why they want the ship back so badly? There must be a reason they're ready to get into a fight with a dragon over it. Just sayin." Radcliffe shrugs and looks thoughtfully at the others before retreating back into the shadow of his cowl.

Palach peers quizzically at @Radecliffe, then back to @Aexander Petrov. He turns again to Radecliffe and offers an assurance, in American. "Nobody is fighting dragon over boat. Nobody is fighting dragon at all. Is boasting. Russian behavior. Means nothing unless shooting starts. We find out who owns the boat and what it is for. If it has no owner, is fair to get boat. We saved it. If they take it, we get payment for saving it. Is only fair." He turns to Alexander and translates what he just said, adding in Russian: "This is fair, yes? You or your master carry weight in this town. It is not good to repay service with anger. We have saved the boat for faster transit down the river. If it is decided that the town has a right to it, then we can work out a fair trade for what we have done to save it."

Listening to @Polach and his recommendation, Alexander is nodding his head in agreement. "Eto kazhetsya razumnym. Nikto ne khochet drat'sya, yesli etogo mozhno izbezhat'. Drakon kazhetsya druzhelyubnym, i yesli lodka spasena, u vas yest' prava." (This seems reasonable. Nobody wants to fight if it can be avoided. The dragon appears to be friendly and if the boat is saved you have rights.) Alexander looks at his master for agreement.

Bryan looks to Palach. "Could you translate please? We found this ship sinking in the river, so we saved it. We do not claim that this is our ship, we merely used it for transportation. We have been in this country for a short period of time, but it is already obvious that you are honorable people and excellent hosts. If you have use for the ship, would it be any trouble to provide us with some alternate form of transportation? We are looking for a Thief named Nemo, and after we find him we will try to return to our land. He is known to consort with Shifters and other beings capable of teleportation. If you have any information regarding him, we would greatly appreciate it."

Looking at the dragon, Alexander is reminded of a time when he was younger. He had a pet dog. That pet dog followed him everywhere. Alexander loved that dog and that dog would follow him everywhere. One day, the local warband came in to resupply, unfortunately this was an unruly warband who thought they owned everything (and in a sense, they did). While Alexander was in town that day, the warband thought it would be funny to make Alexander dance like in the old American westerns. The dog didn't like this and charged the warband. As it was expected, the warband shot the dog and laughed and wrode off, leaving Alexander to deal with the aftermath.

Alexander was crushed. He was left on his own, standing there with a new hole in his heart. Another reminder that life in Russia is hard. Alexander had to take his dog back to his house for 5 miles. When he got there all covered in blood, his parents came out and saw the blood that Alexander was covered in, saw his tears and saw the dog in his arms.

This was one instance that is etched in his mind of his parents rushing to him and just holding him while his emotions came rushing out like the snow in winter. All he remembers is his father holding him closely consoling him, something that did not happen, but it felt good. After several minutes of releasing all of the pent up emotions he had endured for the last 5 miles,Alexander saw that his entire family was there for him. His brothers picked up a shovel and started to dig the hole, his sisters took the dog and made the dog presentable. After an hour of digging and preparing, the local preacher came riding on a mule.

"Alexander, the town is sorry for what happened, and we wish there was something we could do. If you don't mind, I would like to say a prayer on his behalf." Alexander quietly nods yes to the preacher. The service its self was short but everyone was there. The preacher probably gave a nice speech, but Alexander doesn't remember because he didn't really hear what he was saying. When it was all done, His brothers started to put the dirt onto the dog, thus closing this chapter of his life out.

In the fields outside of the town, with this foreign party and dragon, Alexander sniffles and a tear runs down his face in memory of that dog.

Believing he sees Alexander regretting his harsh words towards Thursday, Steelbrok gently pats him on the shoulder. He gives him a smile of encouragement too :D

Steelbrok debates whether to offer Alexander a beer again, Alexander seems the puritanical type so he decides not to (and after all, there aren't many left).

Par listens carefully to what is being said. His mystic awareness allowed him to understand some of what was being said. But even then it was a lot of words and not all of it was clear enough to him to be certain of what was being decided.

Eventually he cannot help it and has to ask. "So, hat is going on. Are they taking the ship from us, or are we using it to hunt the Thief?"

What a Ship Show
  • City of Kazan
  • Horror Factor: 2
  • Conditions: Overcast.
Out of a Boat
After much miscommunication and many people talking at once, things settle down a bit for the group. The presence of Alexander, who seems to represent someone everyone in town respects, also helps the local authorities breathe a little easier. On the matter of the boat’s ownership there are some rules regarding those things, and it seems the group may have a legitimate claim.

The port workers send for the local magistrate to help sort out the details, however, she is a few days away hearing cases in another town. In the meantime, there is the matter of Alexander’s master.

Mystic Kuznya Fanya Yurievich
Outside the din of the town, Fanya Yurievich sits at a campfire. A massive tent billows in the wind nearby. It has fantastic carved poles and pegs suggesting it is somehow magical. The old Kuznya stares into the flames as his apprentice approaches with the group. He doesn’t look up, but acknowledges everyone. His words sound American but don’t match the movements of his lips, like a badly dubbed Quick-Flex martial arts vid. It is likely he is using magic to speak.

”Tell me, did the she-devil send you?”

I assume you understand he means his ex-wife the Romani woman and you agree
, ”Her prophecies are never wrong. Except one, she said she foresaw me leaving her, but this is not true. And yet, I guess it is because I sit here in the cold with no one to warm my bed.”

”Prophecies, oracles. Dangerous business. Yet, here you are. Tell me of your business and why it brings you to me.”
Recap
For a benny, quickly recap why you are here to see him in your own words. Alexander, just take a benny for the dog story and use this as a chance to get caught up in character.”

Palach stares at the kuznya, a little lost in the talk of prophecies and love. He makes no attempt to hide the truth of who sent them, despite her instructions. "My presleduyem vora so sverkh"yestestvennymi sposobnostyami. My ne smozhem ostanovit' yego zlyye dela, yesli ne smozhem svyazat' yego. Nam skazali, chto vy mozhete sdelat' magicheskiye kandaly, chtoby uderzhat' yego v etom samolete." He translates for his non-Russian speaking associates: "We are chasing a thief of supernatural ability. We cannot stop his evil deeds unless we can bind him. We were told you could make magical shackles to keep him on this plane." He continues speaking to the kuznya, though he elects not to translate for his friends. "Kak tol'ko my ostanovim etogo vora, vazhno, chtoby ya vernulsya s etimi lyud'mi v Ameriku."
Translation
Once we stop this thief, it is important that I return with these people to America.

Yes I know it is a player character and I can read his sheet. But so far Par is very consistent about doing this when he encounters people. He is just super curious about everything.

Palach shrugs, not entirely sure how to answer @Aexander Petrov. "Mozhet, on demon? No on voruyet predmety dlya povelitelya demonov. Rezul'tat budet oznachat' katastrofu. My derzhim yego zdes', chtoby on ne vernul eti predmety svoyemu khozyainu. U nego yest' sposobnost' puteshestvovat' mezhdu izmereniyami."
He is a demon, maybe? But he is stealing objects for a demon lord. The result would mean disaster. We are keeping him here so he does not return these objects to his master. He has the power to travel between dimensions.

“Well, your worship,” heck, Steelbrok thinks, looks like the old man is like the mayor around here, “It’s like this:

I was back in good ol’ Blighty, doing my bit for King and Country when the thing you folks here in the future call the Cataclysm happened. Next thing I know I’m pulled willy, nilly a hundred or two years into the future! Now, I’d never have believed in time travel if you’d asked me but when you’re set to consorting with demons, dragons and other beasties on a daily basis you have to be a bit open minded, don’t you?

So, I ended up with these here Tomorrow Legion people (1), here, because they were trying to make life better for people and defend against the bad guys. A proper bunch of Merrie Mean – and Women, he nods towards Makenna, they are.

So, we goes off to stop a magic ring falling into the hands of a Dark Lord (Steelbrok thinks to himself that this sounds like the plot of Lord of the Rings 7 but tries to put memories of that awful sequel aside). Seems some magic thief got there ahead of us but we were close enough to get caught up in, well, I suppose you’d say the wake of his magic transport spell and here we landed in lovely, lovely Russia.

Well, as soon as we arrives it’s raining monstera and demon bears, so Velma and Vera here (he taps his trusty vibro sword and rail gun) got a bit of a work out. We trailed him to a barn but some were a bit too slow on their trigger fingers and the thief poofed away again.

We rounded up the farmer’s animals and said hello to some of the local warlord’s boys. Even they agreed the thief was a bit nasty so they gave us some wheels and off we went.

Now it turns out the guides the warlord sent with us weren’t too trusty and bit of unpleasantness happened.

The we went down a really deep ice chasm to meet with your good lady ex. She gave us a bit of info on this thief and recommended getting some magical thingumajigs to stop him poofing away like he does.

Off we goes again until we came up to a big river. We found a ship that was sinking and spent blood, sweat and lubricating oil to set her aright and bring her to safe harbour. All salvaged and proper.

And here we are and we’re being accused of being thieves and pirates.

Oh, apparently if the thief gives the magic rings to the Dark Lord, it’ll be very bad for the world. Now I’ve been through one Cataclysm and I’m not keen on going through another. So, best thing is we get help to take down this thief, throw the rings into the nearest volcano and then I think it’s time to head west. I swore to bear true and faithful allegiance to King Harry’s heirs and successors and I reckon this Arthur I’ve heard about is the nearest thing. So once we’ve saved the world I’d like to go offer my sword (and railgun) to him.”

“And one last thing, your flunky here,” he gestures at Alexander, “ said some unkind things to young Thursday here. You might want to talk to him about good manners.”

Thursday seems to partially pay attention to what @steelbrok says before zoning out for a bit. After a moment when he finishes talking, Thursday follows up with a "Uh - Yeah, what he said." Not sure if he was paying attention at all, but he did know when the metal man stopped talking to add his part.

Fanya Yurievich listens stoically as the group recounts their tale. After the last person finishes speaking he remains quiet for an awkwardly long time then starts to chuckle softly. Before too long his soft laugh begins to amplify until it reaches a full on belly laugh echoing into the night.

"You come north on a boat seeking a demon thief!? You seek the nightingale. To slay the beast that destroyed Kiev with only its voice?" He stops speaking so he can laugh some more, "And you wish to bind it to this world to kill it forever, then ride off into the sunset set like cowboys?"

He stops laughing only long enough to take a swig of vodka from a bottle.

"Very well, it is time my apprentice flew on his own."

Still guffawing he looks to @Aexander Petrov, "To finish your initiation I quest you to assist them in their task. To bind a demon like the Nightingale will require shackles and chains made from silver and blessed in a holy place. You can make them young Petrov and this wooden man can bless them but you will need holy ground to do your work...and silver."

He chuckles again, "American bogatyrs! Stranger things I have not seen."
Quest
You need silver to make shackles and chains
A holy site
and a ritual done by Petrov and Par to forge the bindings
It takes some time to explain the process. As he does a delegation from the city comes to the meeting place, apparently the magistrate for the local warlord will be in the city tomorrow to arbitrate the issue of the boat.

Cowboy? I will have to ask the wooden man what that is. At this time, Alexander notices that Par is made of wood. There is much to learn from this one, Maybe we might be able to learn more from each other. So we have a metal man and a wooden man. odd combination. I hope the translator is willing to teach me their language, it would make all of this easier.

"Spasibo za veru v moi sposobnosti khozyain. YA ne podvedu tebya." (Thank you for your faith in my abilities master. I will not let you down.)

Alexander will look at the resident translator.

"Pozhaluysta, rasskazhite ostal'nym. YA nadeyus' rabotat' so vsemi vami, chtoby pobedit' etogo demona. Chto do tebya, moy yazykovoy drug. YA by otsenil eto, yesli by vy nauchili menya ikh slovam? YA byl by schastliv nauchit' kogo-nibud' yeshche, osobenno derevyannogo, nashim slovam, chtoby my mogli luchshe razgovarivat' drug s drugom." (Please tell the others. I look forward to working with all of you to defeat this demon. As for you my lingual friend. I would appriciate it if you could teach me their words? I would be happy to teach anyone else, especially the wooden one our words so we can speak with each other better.)

Alexander will offer his hand in friendship.

Palach seems nonplussed by Fanya's reaction. He does his best to translate back and forth between @Aexander Petrov and the rest of the group. At the extended hand, Palach smiles and reaches, clasping the smith's hand in his own. "YA budu schastliv nauchit' vas tomu, chto znayu. Eto tol'ko nekotoryye. Nadeyus', ya ne skazal im, chto vy dolzhny byt' nazhivkoy dlya solov'ya."
I will be happy to teach you what I know. It is only some. I hope I haven't told them that you are to be bait for the nightingale.
With that, he laughs his own belly laugh, a noble effort to match the kuznya. His laugh is cut short as the delegation from the town arrives. He turns to face them and offers a nod of acknowledgement.

Par listens to the old man as he speaks of what must be done while considering the interaction. Then he asks in American. "So I am not learning Russian as fast as I need to. But did he just say the Nightingale destroyed a whole city with his voice?"

Then as @Palach provides the translation confirming what Par understood. "I guess I better get to know this Smith and perhaps we need to practice before the." Offering his hand to @Aexander Petrov. "I am Par. I think we need some practice, and do you have any idea where would could get enough silver?"

Then to the others, "Maybe we can trade the ship for the silver?"
