• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    The Wandering Light nodded, and after finishing her glass, stood from her seat at last. Zeraora Luz was tall when she stood upright, and with such a striking appearance besides, it was hard to imagine how she'd avoid attracting attention as she traveled. Still, she pulled her cloak over her...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz's face bore a forced grin that was halfway to a grimace. "Y'ain't wrong, big fella. Alright. I'll mentor them, then." She made it sound like a threat. "When I said y'all were wildcards, I mean that I can't honestly say I know what'll happen with ya. I won't take a chance on somethin' I...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz nodded, still lost in thought, and tapped her claw against her whiskey tumbler. "You're wildcards – inimitable, at that. You're a– a band, a posse, you're not any of you alone. And you're not here forever – least in theory, 'cause I know at least one angel who ain't fucked off home when his...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    "Salt and fuckin' sand," swore Luz, quietly, shaking her head at Koa's description of the powers. "...Damnit, I need another drink." Luz gestured to Gerome, and sighed, before turning back to the Wayfarers. "You're just gonna come out an' say all that in a public house?" she asked, her voice...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz's amber-clouded eyes widened, and her paw tightened around her glass enough that the Wayfarers could hear her claws scrape against it. "No kiddin'?" she said, in a low voice.

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    The Zeraora's expression flickered. There was doubt there, and concern... "Radiance... ain't meant to 'counter' Shadow. They're just... opposite things happenin' to a 'mon's soul. Light; darkness – explosion; implosion – wildfire; avalanche. Radiance unchains your aura while Shadow locks it up...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz stared into nothingness as she nursed her whiskey, and the Wayfarers spoke. They sure did talk. At last there was a pause. "You don't wanna watch it happen if you can help? Then do something to help." Luz's voice was not soft, but neither was it angry, or cold. This was advice. Or a...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz' expression settled into a kind of hard, weary indifference. Her voice grew quieter. "I'm over three-hundred years old," she said, calmly. "I'm tired. In case you can't see too well yourself – I'm blind. I've been doing this long enough that I've seen more people pass away than you've ever...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz's mouth twitched, flicking her whiskers. Her true emotion couldn't be known, but it certainly wasn't happy. She didn't say anything immediately, just 'watched' him, one claw lightly tapping the table again. "It's what I've done all my life," she said, at last. (Which was not, technically...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz listened to the Wayfarers tell of what they'd accomplished in their time on Forlas, and gave a laconic "Alright," to Odette's walkdown and a "Thanks," to Nova's purchase of a whiskey. He was correct – it was her drink. She took a long, relaxed sip of it as she considered what they told her...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Luz' ears perked at Nova's mention of Escarpa. Flattened down again at Odette's huffing. "Do I look like I'm here to thrill anyone?" said the Zeraora, drily. Her cloudy eyes, dilute with amber, drifted in the vague direction of Odette's face. They never quite fixed on each person she looked at...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    The Zeraora chuckled. Her lip pulled back over sharp teeth in a humourless grin. "It'd be foolish to give Radiance to a gaggle of strangers I know nothin' about, darlin'," she growled. She went for her glass again, shaking her head. "'Mutual aid'," she muttered to herself. "Gotta have...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    The Zeraora's ears flicked again to listen to Gerome, and then to yet another new voice. Sounded like a tall biped, sharp claws on the floor, confident stride. Confident voice – direct, clear. Luz's paw clenched, and her mouth curved into a slight, mirthless smile. "Huh." She took a drink...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    The Zeraora turned to face the kid who'd just spoken to her, her ears pricking for the sound of his voice, dog claws on the wooden floor, anxious breathing. Then towards the sound of a drink being poured, of coins on the bar, of a different voice – adult body, heavy, with talons and paws. A...

    Threadmarks: [Ch04] ~ A Lantern, Carried

    You could find any number of solitary strangers, hunched over a glass of something strong, in just about any saloon bar in the frontier. It was less common to see a Zeraora, her fur a striking silver-white, clothed in a simple cloak and duster, nursing a whiskey. The other patrons, not that...

    Sonora looked sceptical, but gave the notion some actual thought. "Guess I could ask around. If there are more monsters like this out there... maybe you could try asking the Escarpa. Their warrior scouts patrol this region better'n anyone. Or the rangers... They ain't so bad." She wiped her...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Sonora stiffened, ears flattening against her head, then visibly forced herself to relax. "Guess with king bird under lock an' key, I can speak a little freer about it," she said, softly. "Most of 'em weren't even real criminals, just suspects fer this or that case, drunks, outta-towners who'd...

    Frontier Town The Wanderin' Zera

    Sonora gave Odette a small nod. "No problem. Always happy to lend you folks a hand after what you done fer my crew and this town. Don't you get killed, now, y'hear?" She shot the Mawile a wink, before resuming her surveillance of the bar.

    Sonora chuckled drily at Odette's inelegant attempt at a compliment. "Very coherent," she drawled. "Thank you kindly. And I'll wish you and yer crew better luck'n last time if you really are gonna crawl up Blaguarro-way askin' fer trouble." She turned to Lyle and pawed her chin. "Well, I...

    Sonora chuckled at the exchange, seemingly genuinely charmed at Gerome's answer, then interjected to answer Felin's question. "Blaguarro's a shithole mining town northeast of here. It's one of the larger Commonwealth settlements in the frontier, but it's not such a great place to live or work...
