    Default Unknown Battlefield [Out of Town]

    Somewhere in the cosmos, where Verdandi and Aesa hail from, there is a plane. On this plane there is a continent... and so forth until you get down to a certain battlefield. The two armies, who we really are not concerned with (NPC Motto- We eat dirt and like it!) are currently fighting each other. Neither is giving ground, and it seems like it will simply be a battle of attrition. As both forces are the same size, this will most likely lead to mass slaughter.
    Two individuals, however, are fighting hard and in a manner worthy of song and legend. Above them, Verdandi hovers, holding her arms across her chest.

    Iames appears next to her. The force of gravity promptly begins to affect him, with the result that Iames barely manages to restrain an entirely undignified and mood-spoiling yelp of alarm before he buoys himself with psionic power and floats back up to where Verdandi is. He joins her in watching the men, and also waits for her reaction to his arrival.

    Verdandi does not even seem to notice Iames. She appears extremely focused on the two combatants. Her eyes are judging and her face stern. Apparently she has little or no reaction to any other people around her, dying or not.

    Iames ponders whether or not to break her concentration. On the one hand, if he broke her concentration, she might miss out on a crucial moment of the fight. On the other hand, if he waited for the fight to finish, there probably wouldn't be time to talk to her.

    One of the men, wearing a dark red cape, swings his sword at his adversary with brutal force, while the other takes the hit on his shield and savagely kicks at his enemy, the wolf pelt on his back flapping oddly. Verdandi has her eye on the first of the two.

    Iames tries to look at their alignment auras.

    One of them, the man wearing the wolf pelt, is chaotic neutral. His foe in the red cape is neutral evil.
    Red cape grunts and takes the force of the kick full on, but still swings his sword in response. The pelted warrior bellows at him as the sword slices through a weak point in the numerous hides and scraps of leather covering him, and flings his shield at him while dropping his sword. He charges the red caped man, his eyes feral and enraged.
    Verdandi watches them both, certain that someone was going to earn the right to valhalla this day.

    A portal opens up next to Iames's arm, and he hands Vera's sword through to himself. The portal then closes, and Iames decides to break in now. I brought you your sword, he says, offering her the hilt.

    Verdandi does not start, but smoothly turns to look at Iames. Her eyes narrow in concentration as she barely recognizes him. Iames? She glances back at the combatants to make sure they are not done fighting.

    Iames's relief that she recognizes him wars with his realization that she almost didn't. Yes, it's me, Vera. I urgently need to talk to you. If you can hang around after they've finished fighting for a while, it can wait until then, but if you'll have to leave immediately, then I need to talk to you now.

    I- damn it all, Iames. Make this quick. Verdandi keeps an eye on the two while giving him half of her attention.

    Knowing speed is off the essence, Iames attempts to open a link to her mind and directly transfer the information about her sword flickering and growing dim, his and Aerin's worry, and finally his arrival here to take her back.

    If that doesn't work, then Iames says this: When she got up this morning, Aerin saw your sword flickering. She came and told me about it, and I got worried, since you told me that I the magic left your sword it meant that you were forgetting and that I should come get you. So I came here to get you.

    You came to get me? Verdandi does not seem to understand this.

    To bring you back to Town, you know, with me and Aerin? Don't you remember?

    Verdandi bites her lip, thinking about it, while she finally takes her sword. Her name is very, very dim on the blade now.

    Iames hesitates, then floats around in front of her and kisses her passionately, sending his love and worry to her mind.

    Verdandi almost pulls away, but seems to remember a little. She kisses Iames back hesitantly.

    Iames lets up a little, kissing her gently, now. He pulls away and looks at her hands wondering if she's still wearing the ring he gave her as a token of their engagement.

    The ring, if she is wearing it, is covered up by gauntlets. Verdandi glances back at the two men who are still fighting.

    Iames glances back as well, then tries to capture Vera's gaze. Do you remember going to the pond, Vera? Iames asks. Do you remember our first night together? He looks into her eyes, willing her to remember.

    ((Note: Iames is not using any kind of power here. At least, not on purpose. ))

    Verdandi shakes her head, watching the two men fight. She pulls out of Iames's embrace to get ready to swoop down if she needs to.

    Iames's expression grows saddened. Do you remember anything about us? Our engagement? Hookah Hank's? Aerin's arrival? The SMBR? Any of it?

    I remember everything, but it is all so vague I might as well say I do not remember. Verdandi focuses on the red caped man as he begins to lose the fight more and more clearly.

    Is there anything that you can remember more clearly than the rest, or is it all equally fuzzy?

    Its all vague to me. The red caped man is brought to the ground, and his adversary begins to position himself for a killing blow. Verdandi stretches her wings out and almost imperceptably starts to drift down.

    With a snap, the pelted warrior breaks his foe's neck and howls his victory aloud. Verdandi picks up the battered body, but instead of holding the actual body, she seems to have taken the man's soul. She begins to fly up and away from the battlefield.

    Aerin comes through a portal in midair and immediately flares out her wings. She sees Vera flying away and flies after her.

    Iames hangs back while Vera picks up the body, then follows her.

    Verdandi looks back at them in confusion. What are you doing? Her voice is oddly distant.
