Glory to Alainn!

You are Cathal Rathais, one of the chosen elite, the 13th Legion, scouting a world 4231 years after your country won the Grand War and placed itself in cryostasis to allow the planet to recover.

You have assumed the false name "Ace Locke" for your hunter identity. So far, only close friends and allies know your real name.

You are back in California again, on the artificial island of FEATHER.

"Find anything interesting?"

"Yes, she can turn organic materials to stone, but not organic once more. All organics are fair game for transitioning."

"Wait, we did turn a creature in a metal box into a bigger one..." Alleria adds.

"Right, an organic component is needed to convert inorganic to organic. It's horrifying to watch."

"This coming from the guy who planned existential horror for his ex-boss." Alleria smirks.

"Right... um, can I possibly use your beach? It'd be nice to use one without monsters..."

Jeremy looks at you somewhat horrified, "What beaches have you been using?!"

"Underground one, last time. It's noth of our estate in an underground city. You should study that place. It's where Artoria came from."

"Oh, I will. Thank you for notifying me." Jeremy nods.

"Anything here on Earth we can help with?" You offer.

"Ah, not really. the Fae are too much to deal with, and the other Labs are too far to launch an attack. You can relax Cathal." Allreia responds.

You look to Sam, she miles back.

"I'm headed to the waterfront. I just got a new swimsuit, so I want to catch that summer sun... erm, on Earth."

It looks like you're left alone once more.

You head to the armory. To be fair, this interests you a bit, since you have little idea of what exactly FEATHER is using.

Upon arrival, you find Almeda waiting near the gun racks, "I was wondering when you'd show up. It looks like most of these weapons are magnet-based. Gauss rifles. The heavier ones are railguns. There's a lot of rapid-fire weapons here that operate on similar methods. Lots of electricity..."

She leads you to another rack, this one containing a set of Jeremy-made guns. You've seen enough to know the style. Except this time, they are labeled. Atomic disruptor, matter reformatter, Implosion cannon, Material disassembler. All of these sound horrific.

"These are the weapons used to destroy the world?"

"Ah, no, that was mostly something called a thermal bomb. They have nuclear weapons in this world too, but apparently they are illicit for some reason. Possibly the radiation."

You frown, radiation was one of many reasons Alainn went into stasis. That and environmental recovery. So Earth wasn't radioactive. All that destruction was from a different kind of bomb... Cleaner... and somehow larger.

"I wonder if Jermy can make more..." Almeda ponders.

"I hope not. We don't want our world looking like this one."

"Of course not." she agrees, "I want to test one of the guns, but I also want to check out their vehicles..."

You take Almeda to the firing range. Together you try your hands at shooting some of the guns. The FEATHER weapons have a bit of a kick to them, but it's nothing you can't handle. It still feels a bit different, considering your weapon has no kick at all.

Then come Jeremy's guns. These prove devastating. You are a bit terrified to imagine a team of soldiers with these. You disintegrated several targets with just one of these guns.

After returning the guns, You and Almeda look to each other.

"Interesting weaponry, right?" She starts.

"Quite. Terrifying too."

"I know."

"So, Almeda... Would you be interested in going to the beach with me?" You ask.

"Hrm, maybe. Although I wouldn't mind walking around a bit with you. Perhaps see what someone else in the group is up to?"

"I visited most of them, they went to the beach..."

"Oh..." she sounds a bit disappointed, "I would have liked it if you'd gone with me. Is anyone left to visit?"

"A few..."

"Well, whatever you decide, I'll come with you!"

You head of with Almeda to the highrises of the administration district. IT's much like the city on the mainland, with shops lining the bottoms. Eventually you chance on Vivianne and Clark in a library of sorts. Clark appears to be debating with Vivianne and reading.

"No, no, that's WHY fae need to exist."

"Your entire argument is based on the assumption that the warped fabric of reality fae create is supposed to be the natural order. I disagree."

"You don't understand it at all! It's supposed to be like that!"

"I am someone who restricts the flow of such things for the sake of preventing a bleedoff from dimensions. No they are not, and fae don't exist on many planes. So I doubt they represent nature at all."

"We're connected to it, we feel it, what it wants to be!"

"What you assume it wants to be. I think you project your desires onto the world."

"And what you do is much different?"

"Mine is very different. It drives to insanity and corrupts the land, much like yours, except mine operates on darker terms... But that's only an attribute humans give..."

You approach the two.

"Ah, Cathal, Almeda, welcome." Clark smiles and looks back to his book.

"Wha- how do you know their real names?!"

"I know many things. Secrets and knowledge are what I represent." Clark smirks at the fae.

"We were having a discussion over which is worse for reality, fae or eldritch corruption>" Clark smiles, "I feel you are both aware of which?"

"Eldritch, obviously. With all the tentacles and miasma, and... it's just ew."

"I have the same opinion of turning things into colors so vibrant they hurt the eyes and saccharine-sweet locales."

"Erm, riveting. What's that you're reading?"

"Hrm? Oh, this is... Kafka. I rarely get the chance to read human tomes that AREN'T magical foci. Also read some Junji Ito. Absolutely hilarious comedy. The spiral one is especially good." Clark nods.

"He's called every horror novel he picked up so far a comedy, save for a few of the ones I like..." Vivianne sighs.

"What you like is terrible."

"It's a bestseller!"

"Anything interesting?"

"A few interesting things. A lot of the work in FEATHER is delegated to divisions. They function without Alleria just fine, which is why she's able to leave. I also found some maps of the world here before the war... And I discovered a lovely tea shop."

"Also, can you tell us which is worse to deal with? Yucky, tentacled Eldritch stuff or bright and cute faerie stuff?"

"They aren't idiots, Vivianne. We've faced both and one was objectively far worse."
>Faerie
>Eldritch
and...
>Can I see the map?
>We're going to the beach, do you want to go too?

>>1865280
High Fae, Deep Eldritch both are terrible.

They're both terrible, but in different ways.
>Can I see the map?

>>1865280
They are both horrifying. Appearance is just cosmetics and irrelevant, it's the warping and subversion that makes them terrible and frightening

"Both are terrible."

"Hey! You have to pick one!" Vivianne stomps a foot in frustration, "I want to win my 20 gold!"

"Hey, they didn't choose yours. You owe me."

"They didn't pick yours!"

"I said 20 if they don't pick yours, never anything about mine." Clark's smile widens.

"THAT'S NOT FAIR."

"Um, sorry to interrupt, can I see the map?" you ask.

"Oh, certainly. I got a proportional one." You look at the map. None of these landforms look anything like your world. It just seems so... alien.

"A-answer for real!" Vivianne demands.
>Neglect to answer.
>Fae
>Eldritch

"We are going to the beach soon, if you'll join us..."

Vivianne pouts, "I'll go, but I want to hear your REAL answer this time."

Clark shrugs, "I am pretty much done, we can go to the beach."

You seriously want the man who is best friends with Cthulhu on a beach? He'd rather keep reading wouldn't he? Also isn't salt deadly to fae or am I wrong?

"Fine, if I must choose, fae."

"Eh?!" Vivianne balks.

"YESSSSSS, you owe me 20 for sure now, Fae."

"NOOOOO!!! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO SAY ELDRITCH!!!" The faerie cries out.

"Right, so the beach, is it? Come along Vivianne. You can buy me ice cream."

"I don't wannaaa...."

You wave and make for the beach first. The sun is warm, and the waves of the inner beach calm. You are separated from Almeda while she gets into swimming attire.

The swimming gear from Kantrel is distributed to your party, with yourself getting a pair of trunks.

Jeremy, Alleria, Lily, and Vee arrive lastly. They already are wearing outfits, although Jeremy is still wearing his coat for some reason.

The girls from your world have swimsuits you know, skin shows, but... then there's the Earth swimsuits, which are rather revealing, practically underwear.
