Three days later...

Nuln - home of the Imperial Gunnery School and the Empire's College of Engineers. Five huge bridges that spanned the River Reik and it's tributaries criss-crossed the city and the citizens that did live here did so under smog-covered skies.

Having ridden into the city a day or so earlier, Merrik cupped a gauntlet against his mouth in an effort to avoid inhaling smoke as he trotted into the city. He continued along the cobbled streets and main alleys as he attempted to make his way to the Gunnery School, where the newly--arrived forces of the Empire were staging.

Andrew walked along the cobbled-stone streets of the town he'd been carted off to. Nuln he'd heard it been called. His T-51b's helmet filtered the smoke in the streets, but made a Darth Vader like noise every time he breathed. His gear was far more advanced than any one else that had followed them. Except for that one Lia girl, and her suit with it's energy shields. At least he thought it was energy shields, he'd never really asked.

As he thought of that, he noticed another glance in his direction. His armor, from a reasonable distance, looked like some really fancy platemail armor. Until one got up close enough to see the tubes and lights and joint-servo's. His weapons off-set this, being of the Laser variety, they looked for more advanced than the 1500's-esque firearms the people here were toting about.

He'd never participated in a large-scale medievel battle before. Of course he knew how to use a sword, and how to combat one due to fighting Crimson Dragoons, but he wasn't sure about this... hell, the only reason he had even followed along with the conscription was because this looked like a fight for survival, not for greed.

There were at least a couple thousand people here. Andrew had no idea what tactics with melee weapons was like, especially on large scale. Although he was pretty sure that 'squad' tactics in that form didn't exist. Of course, that didn't mean he couldn't command modern armies. He wasn't very experienced in that scale, but he was good. Hell, he'd led the Strike Team in Anchorage and rallied the defense of Big Town against Super Mutants. And he'd advised Colonel King during the Yangtzee Campaign in China, winning more than a few battles.

"Well... where do I go...?" The Knight mumbled lowly to himself, hoping someone could come up and prod him on the shoulder, giving orders.

Amongst the city of Nuln, thick, grey smoke lingered like a stagnant, putrid smell. Citizens hacked their lungs out into the air too, the bacteria mixing with the cloud of sickening intent.

Just barely, in a small gap in the blanket of industrial waste, a few purple sparkles added a tiny amount of colour to the pastille greys and blacks. The sparks began to divide and grow, rather slowly to begin with, yet speeding up rather quickly. Some fused together after floating around in their unique way, flashing another shade of purple as they went.

Before long, the gap in the cloud seemed to have been replaced by an outstanding mixture of purple and violet smoke. The purple patch could be compared to that of repaired blankets: An odd scrap of material meant to fix up a split, rip or hole.

In an instant, the purple smoke tendrils shot downwards, spiralling faster and faster as they soared downwards. Many folk ran into shops and hid behind stalls as they plummeted down towards their obvious destination; The main street was clear of human life at this point, citizens running for their lives at the sight of whatever this thing was.

As soon as the smoke hit the floor, a miniature explosion occurred. Iridescent purples and pink contrasted and blended together, all at once. Several screams sounded out to accompany the detonation of the tendrils, yet they were mostly muffled as they attempted to penetrate ear drums and bounce off of the dry cobble stones.

When the violet smoke settled, something quite odd seemed to have happened. Instead of a large crater, wrecked buildings and a clutter of debris lying around, a lady dressed in a trench coat stood in the middle of a pristine street.

Her auburn hair whipped slowly in the breeze, blowing it back to reveal her stunning ice blue eyes and her angular facial features. Atop her head lay a pair of small eye goggles, which provided her hair with an effective head band which accompanied her free flowing hair and plait nicely.

On the woman's back, a mostly gold rifle lay, unmoved by the wind. The Sniper was almost as tall as the woman from barrel to stock, though it lay harmlessly pointing toward the ground without posing a threat. On the right side of the rifle, which was currently facing away from the small of her back, beautifully etched purple handwriting read the word "Lividity".

Looking past the newly arrived female, a few citizens peeked from behind curtains and over stalls, fearful for their own lives and the lives of their families. The woman turned her head to the side and observed this sign of fear, to which she bowed on one knee.

"I am not here to hurt you, young ones. I am here for reasons I do not understand." she spoke, her head tilted to the ground with closed eyes, "I am not evil, you have my word."

"Whoa!" Merrik yelped, reigning the horse in quickly as a woman phased into existance in a puff of purple smoke. His sword was halfway out of its sheath before he reluctantly lowered it.

"You almost got yourself killed!" he rebuked as he calmed down. "Who are you?"

"I am Taron." the girl replied, smiling a little as her cheeks went pink. Once again her aggravating, humble and shy personality was kicking in. Why she couldn't act sociable around anyone, regardless of gender, was beyond her and most others. The only person she could ever really talk to directly was Queen Amethyst, though, it was different when said person happened to be the ruler of the land.

Red Saber, one of the reinforcments sent through the portal, stood a short ways from Merrik's spooked horse. She was certainly attracted by the excitment, and also, there was some good looking clothes and tailors near here. She was quite interested in that, but it would have to wait until after this. Innocent people were, after all, at stake.

"Centurian, what is the matter? This woman is not of your Empire?"

Merrik turned his horse as he glanced back at the newest arrival.

"Clearly not." he snorted before turning back to Taron.

"I must ask that you accompany me to the Imperial Gunnery School. There, my superior will decide what to do with you." he quipped to Taron before moving off at a slow trot. The Gunnery School was still a number of blocks away.

"Erm." Taron shyed away, averting her eyes from both the man and woman, "Okay."

"For such a beautiful girl, she is timid. Oh well, as I always say, a pretty boy is good. A pretty girl is even better. One must appreciate beauty in all its forms, though art must never be distrbed. When possible, of course." Red Saber made her little comment passing by the girl, before adjusting her hair, and moving on, behind Merrik.

As Taron listened with open ears, her eyes softened and her cheeks turned from pink to red. She smiled a little awkwardly after that, following the two to said "Imperial Gunnery School".

Eventually, the streets widened out into a vast space, where a huge, multi-story building sat. Nearly a mile long, with black smoke spewing from multiple smoke stacks and the sounds of cannon fire coming from within, the Imperial Gunnery School looked, in some respects, more similar to a cathedral then a modern factory.

Merrik continued to ride towards the building, where a vast crowd of soldiers was going in and out of the building. Here, it seemed, was where the army was being marshalled.

A feminine figure, clad in red and black, stood with two engineers, discussing the potential ways to modify a weapon for the better. Modify may not be the best word, she was attempting to convince them that they could improve the design. The weapon in question had nine rotating barrels that could devastate an enemy, but it was prone to explosion that would result in death of the operators and any within the vicinity.
The Quarian sighed and looked to her left, thinking to herself, "These guys are so hard headed."

Thom's head raised as Merrik, accompanied by two woman, entered the room. One he knew, to some extent, whilst the other was unfamiliar to him. She wore a trench coat that reached her shins, which were fit snugly into a pair of high, black boots. Underneath the coat, the girl's attire consisted of a black chain-link shirt with a white top to hold her breasts. Around her waist, a dark leather belt held up her long black pants.

The mage wandered over to them with weapons at hand, admiring the golden weapon on her back. It's colour fit with the clasps meant to fasten the coat, dim light glinting off each shiny surface.

"Who is this, Merrik?" he asked, looking between the man and new woman. He found it somewhat amusing that her eyes dodged his as they threatened to meet. She seemed shy. Probably new to her trade, judging by her actions and appearance.

"She seems rather shy. Obviously not one of your warriors." Thom pointed out, rather rudely and mockingly. The girl looked at the floor, her timid eyes hardening just a fraction.

The robed man seemed to be of an ignorant and arrogant nature. He spoke with a tone that defined him as one to brag about his prowess. To her, this man was pathetic in his own way. Then again, she was the shy, timid one; But Taron wasn't, as Amethyst's servants would say, an ass.

In her mind, she discussed the topic of the man, sensing something of a magical essence around her. It wasn't emitted by him much, but rather the weapons he carried, particularly the staff.

"They call me Taron." she said quietly, eyes trained on the floor still, "Amethyst's royal protector."

"Well, Taron." Thom said, his tone defining his personality even further, "I've never heard of Queen Amethyst. Who is she?"

His voice seemed a little less harsh now. The girl stood and raised her head a little, yet her eyes still avoided his. Thom smiled and chuckled a little,

"I understand you are shy. There is really no need to be. I barely know anyone here either."

"Heh. Yeah." Taron said, biting her bottom lip with the very tip of her front teeth. Her eyes softened once again, her ice blue eyes now consoling. Instinctively, her finger twiddled with the loose hair that formed her fringe. This was mainly due to procrastination; Finding things to do took her away from eye contact without making her look like a jester with the inability to move their head.

Dismounting his mount at a temporary stable, Merrik strode inside the Imperial Gunnery School, where, thankfully, them men were being assigned their arms, armour and posts within a sound-proof room. Well, relativly soundproof - he could hear dull BOOMs from beyond the rooms walls, indicating that the Empire's artillery were getting ample testing time.

He strode up to one of the desks, where a begrudging paymaster sat, and gruffly added, "Merrik. acting Captain. I was summoned here earlier-"

The tired paymaster waved a hand towards another door. "The General has been expecting you, Captain. He needs to see you as soon as you are able to."

Nodding, Merrik darted past the recruitment desks into the adjacent room, clearing his mind for the upcoming discussion.

"Queen Amethyst is the head of the monarchy of my world." Taron smiled. Purple flames flickered and coiled around her hands in an instant, tangling with the other tongues of magical fire. She carefully took the rifle which was on her back and pulled it over her shoulder.

The weapon seemed like an upscale version of a Sniper Rifle, yet it performed an extremely peculiar action: The iridescent violet flames raced over the rifle in her hands, covering it from stock to barrel. A mixture of bright white, pinks and purples blanketed the weapon, merging together to form a small explosion. It caused no harm to anything or anyone, yet instead of the golden rifle, a two handed, ornate purple sword almost as tall as Taron fit snugly in her hands.

"The protector of the Queen wields Lividity."

"Hello. You are not reinforcments, thus, she's not with us. I am one of the reinforcments, by the way." A woman stood, a single hand on her hip, as she looked the few of them over. They were certainly a livid little group

But then, the likes of this place was weird. Despite all that smog, it was certainly fresher than her world- even here. The people here were different, the technology was very low, but the knowledge of magic was high. Certainly high, anyway, though she had yet to see any true magic.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Red Saber looked at a few of the war machines, mild interest piqued by the weapons of war. It certainly wasn't pretty....but it looked effective, very effective. She wouldn't be to quick to judge capabilities until it was a open battlefield. Hopefully their Legate wasn't utterly incompetent. She could hope.

"I like it. You seem powerful in your magic and weapons." Thom smiled, "I'll be on the roof."

Thom disappeared from the area, only to appear on the roof moments later. He sat on a pile of slate he had arranged, making himself comfortable. Looking out, he could see a woman dressed in what seemed to be denim shorts, plus a white shirt and black jacket.

She was equipped with her own arsenal of weapons too, much more modern than the rifle that belonged to Taron. In an instant, Thom was in front of the girl, shielded in yellow light.

"Hostile?"

In the instant he had come in front of her, the high tech plasma rifle was aimed at the center of his robed forehead. She made sure to keep it there, just in case he got rowdy. She could play a little vanashing act herself, if she had wanted, but that was a waste of prana, and there was no point.

He was obviousily friendly, and it would be idiotic to make herself look like the enemy.

"If I was, then I would've shot you five minutes ago."

"Possibly. But you would have missed." Thom joked, chuckling to himself, "Come with me."

He lead the newcomer up the mainstreet, to the building the soldiers were residing in. He opened the doors and lead the girl inside, once again meeting up with Taron and Red Saber.

"You guys could have a slumber party, though I doubt you'd use pillows in a fight." he sighed, teleporting out in an instant.

Lia turned back to the engineers, "I am going to go over this again..." and so began the long process of trying to convince said engineers that she could help improve the weapon. She went on for another ten minutes before it broke into an argument again. She gave up, "Have it your way. I'll just let your gun blow up in your face." She turned to walk away and noticed the sudden appearance of the pair on the roof. They quickly went inside and she made for the building, intent to see what was happening.

"Alright. So who are you all?" The woman leaned a little at the side, annoyed to be herded. She wasn't about to get devilish and use anything in her arsenel in a stupid way, however. Yet. Yet, of course.
