Keldicket was still unsure of Deslic's motives and determined it best to query further.

"Forgive me Deslic, for I am only vaguely familiar with the Mages Waste incident. But more importantly, I am interested in why you bring it up. Xiaur is indeed troubled in ways some other Nations have been fortunate wenough to avoid, do you think financial aid would help? Or maybe military aid? Or aid in reconstruction and irrigation? Or do you speak of something more directly related to the Wastes? I must make it clear to everyone, if we are to resolve any problems, the problem must be put forth to some extent. So Deslic, if you would be so kind as to continue..."

"Truthfully, I am not the leades of my nation, I am only the leader of the Deathwalkers, one of the 12 orders of magic that rule my nation. Thinking of that, I am more or less saying that an offer of anything you just stated Keldicket would help greatly improve your nations standing within Xiaur. But to warn you, the military aid would be stationed, most likely, around the Void." He smiled slightly, maybe now they understood his postion, he had no real right to represent Xiaur here, only the DeathWalkers.

Keldicket nodded in comprehension.

"Thank you Deslic, I believe we understand your viewpoint better. And I will also add, everyone here is free to exercise as much representation as they feel, as of now, this is a free forum for all voices to be heard, whether or not your Nation's government will approve of proposed plans will remain to be seen, but the only restrictions that should be enacted here are self-restrictions. And all meetings will be primarily confidential from those who do not attend, unless mandate is wrought within these halls. As for Xiaur, I can not promise anything Deslic, but I assure you that Kahame may indeed be interested in the alliance and trade such assistance could provide, and I also assure you the leaders of Kahame will look into the matter. Does anyone else wish to continue on the topic of assissting Xiaur, or does anyone else have a seperate topic to bring up?"

Keldicket once again nodded in Deslic's direction, in the brief period of time they had conversed at this Council, Keldicket had come to a much better understanding of Deslic and his trust and repsect for him grew exponentially.

Ayame had no manners, and as she stepped into the council building. She was in full armor, as usual, and her huge sword was against her shoulder. "And where were the other nations when Xiaur needed help to begin with?" Ayame spoke as she stepped into the large chamber. She obviously still held a grudge, dispite not being Defender when it happened.

"I'm glad to see you here Deslic." She smiled, moving over to him, and taking a seat beside him. "I wonder though, would the other Nations be so willing to even step foot in Xiaur? It has been long since we last saw a diplomat. Do you fear the locked up enemy? Or perhaps to you fear us? Weakend though we may be?"

Ayame did not mean to be so hostile, but it was frustrating to live in a land that once prospered and now was falling to pieces because they faught a powerful enemy alone.

Admiral Kiai handed the palace guard the scroll containing the seal of the Liang Emperor. The guard looked at the document breifly before returning it to the Sky Navy Admiral and opening the doors for his entry.

Walking in, Kiai moved to take the seat designated for the Liang Nation representative. He had apparently missed part of the discussion, but figured he'd catch up fast enough.

Taking herself by surprise, Tessarya rose at the entrance of the armoured lady. "I can speak only for myself on this, but I fear none in Xiaur," she said clearly and strongly, fixing her gaze on the Xiaurian. "And I would not call any Nation 'weakened'. Diplomacy may have been cast aside to deal with more intimate problems within nations- for how can a diplomat carry out their task when their own Nation is faltering?"

Keldicket was shocked at the utter negligence and rude attitude the newcomer, Ayame had. He felt he needed to deal so accordingly.

'It has never been the responsibility of other Nations to deal with the problems of our enemies and even right up to, in many cases, our allies. That is why I have summoned this Council, this will be the source of change in old Isis politics. No, no Nations came to the aid of Xiaur in difficult times, but it was not our responsibility to send aid nor diplomat. But I will say outright, I will personally attend any Nation that will have me if the meeting is for the sake of Isis. But such errors in way were of the best, we are all here to work together, and to iron out our problems, as a whole.

And I must add, you ask us if we fear you? I think most are not. But I will say this, it is not well to speak of peace while lashing out with a fiery tongue and bearing armor and sword as if attending war.

If we, any of we, are to accomplish anything for this continent, wemust put aside the past, at least here, and stride for the future. We must negotiate peacably and respectably. Now, who wishes to take the floor?
'

Keldicket stepped back towards his seat, but did not sit yet. He would wait to see whom would speak next.

Ayame shook her head. They had misunderstood her completely. "No. There is nothing from the people of Xiaur that I believe you should fear, rather the void, and the enemy we hold captive in our land. For eons we have lived with the void as our neighbor, and even now, as this council rises I hear only one offer of add, and I thank you sir."

Ayame had a foul temper, but she could not help it, it was just how she was raised. But she was sick of talking now, she had obviously upset many there, but she didn't care. "I am through speaking." She said.

Although having only just arrived, Kiai decided that he needed to at least attempt to calm his fellow council members. "Please! This is no place for aggresive actions, nor aggresive attitudes!"

Standing up to draw attention, Kiai's eyes moved between Ayame and Tessarya, pausing pointedly upon each. "Ayame if it is aid that Xiaur seeks, then ask for aid. This is not the place for harsh words."

Turning his attention to Tessarya, Kiai shook his head gently. "Nor is it a place to release unspent pride. We are here to attempt to solve the problems upon Isis, both political and economical." Kiai's eyes returned to Ayame. "As well as dealing with our mutual enemies."

Shifting his stance, the Liang Admiral looked around at the council members as he spoke to the general audience. "Even though our veins carry different blood, we meet this day as brothers and sisters... Let us keep it that way. If not for the sake of peace between us, then let it be for the sake of all of Isis." His speech finished, Kiai sat down once again to await the responses of his peers.

Ji wasnt suprised by the shouting erupting from the chamber, he was much moreso when Admiral gave them the good one-two, and everyone hushed. Ji had, in a fond way, looked upon the Admiral. He was in his best when the situation was bad, which was also why he was a good Tactician. Ji took a seat quietly, thinking of a speech if one was necessary soon.

Deslic turned to the one that said all Xiaur needs to do was ask for aid. "If you had arrived a little earlier Kiai, you would have heard me asking for aid from other nations, but alas, I must agree with Keldicket here, we need to work together if we are to get anything done here."

Deslic turned to Ayame "I thank you for showing up here Ayame, but I must ask you to give me your swors dear lady. As a fellow member of Xiaur, I will see that no harm comes to the weapon or us," he leans in a little closer so only Ayame sould hear him, "You of all people should know that noe one can touch the sword, or us while I still have my gaurds that no one can see." He held his hands up carefully waiting for her to hand him her sword.

Ayame shook her head. The sword had been her fathers and she rarely was seen without it. "Very well Deslic." She sighed. "Hold onto it, keep it safe." She laughed.

Her eyes found the other council members. "Forgive me for my harshness. All I ask is a little support for Xiaur."

After glancing around at the council members, Kiai stood up once more. "Liang will offer aid, but we will require a condition in order to opperate effectively so far from our home ports." Looking down for a moment, the Admiral tried to organize the demand into an easier to swallow format.

"For our air fleet to effectively opperate and offer protection and support, Liang will need at least one fully operating Air-Dock Spire upon Xiaur ground." Kiai shifted his gaze between the two Xiaur representatives, wondering which one would object first.

(Profile of Liet)

Liet entered the great hall, leaning heavily on his gnarled staff, and marvelled at its beauty. It easily matched and surpassed the decadent beauty in most of the Dimurgian guildhalls he had seen in that corrupt country. &#8220;Let&#8217;s see if this place is just as corrupt&#8221;, Liet thought briefly to himself, before limping slowly towards the seats where the representatives sat. There were several high ranking officials already seated, taking part in discussing what obviously had to be the problems of Axilias neighbouring country Xiaur, and among them he thought he spotted a familiar face: Gabriel, the self-proclaimed ruler of all Axia and Axilia, the one responsible for butchering one of his talented teams of hunters of knowledge. His purple robe darkened fast when it sensed Liets suddenly aroused feelings. Noticing it, the old man blanked his mind, causing the robe to go comfortably purple again. &#8220;No need giving away any more information than necessary&#8221; he thought, and seated himself beside the Liang.

Quickly catching up to the debate, Liet rose, saluting the room with putting his right clenched fist up high, allowing the robe to fall down to his shoulder and revealing his house-tattoo. &#8221;I salute you all with wishing we all were flesh and blood. May clean water and unwarped shadow never evade you. I am Liet el Hûl of clan Hûl of the Blended Twilight, and my voice speaks on behalf of the Head of Hûl. If it is help that Xiaur wants, our clan stands at the ready to aid in any way we can. Our War Chief are willing to send some of our finest followers of the Way of the Warrior to our glorious neighbours. Our Shamans are eager to enter The Spirit Realms serving Xiaur. Our Hunters of Knowledge would be more than willing to aid you in the search for knowledge about the Devourer, the one whose minions warped our land into his land. Our hatred for our common enemy are equal.&#8221; Finishing up, Liet sat down, picked forth a strap from one of his pockets and tied the robe up above his right arm, so that his mark of power would remain visible. Closing his completely black eyes, Liet extended his attention and waited for the next speaker.

Raisie listened attentively, if you could call it listening.

She was not actually manifest to anyone in the room. In her true elemental form, she was nothing more than a breath of air stirring the dust. But when she had heard of the First Council in her adopted nation of Arthis, she had been curious enough to attend.

She knew that her own people, of the Elemental Plane, were scarce among the mortals and known as little more than myth and legend, but she still wondered to herself why no one ever thought of calling on them for aid.

She hovered in the light of a stained glass window, causing the brilliant patterns to dilate and waver ever-so-slightly. But she remained silent, waiting for the right time to reveal herself.

"A spire will be built. If that is what is required then I will have it done. I have but one goal for the time being, and that is to strengthen the relations of Xiaur and the other nations." Ayame bowed her head to the Liang Admiral.

"Liet el Hul, I selute you, and I admire you for your gracious offer. Which, the nation of Xiaur will accept. What help we can get, we will take." She smiled. "And truely this will benefit the nations of Axia and Axilia, as well as your clan. We accept your generous offer, and will accomidate you as seen fit."

Keldicket was glad to see accomplishment in the forum he had started, of course it was the work of a far greater number of individuals who had make the current situation work.

"Ayame, Deslic...I am of little more than counsel to the Chieftains of Kahame. You all know the Gunrag, they are strong warriors and great friends, but I hold it to my own beliefs that they are of opinianated stock, but more importantly they are not at the moment entirely united. For me to promise the aid of the nation would be to lie to your faces, the tribes of Kahame are seperate, though strong as such. At the moment, all I can offer this...

Safe harbor for all Xiaur citizens here. If the Void becomes a significant issue, this building's grounds may well serve as refugee.

I can also send numbers of the Nareel High Spies of Kahame. I am their elder and they will heed my orders. They make for moderate warriors and fine scouts. Otherwise, I offer only prayers in my faith, as I am sure we shall all take to our respective faiths.

Now, what other issues haven been pressing on our fine continent?
"

Keldicket had caught wind of the uneasy news. He had heard of the laziness that was overcoming Isis, the inactivity that spread like the plague amongst its members. The nations struggled because the citizens did so little, and the leaders could do little help short of enslaving their citizens. Nonetheless, the proud old Nareel had not abandoned hope for success in Isis.
