Ancient Vallo Journals - posted late evening

[ooc: feel free to handwave anyone having an ancient vallo journal~]

Hey, can we get an update? Just a little nervous.



Also, on our end, I've been told that it's just more angry vegetation coming through the portals. The portals also are moving around the island. But if you're dealing with plants much like these over there, just wondering if people are still captured and all of that.

Is my wife Anyway--thank you.

I hope these things work

To anyone who can see this: This is Rowen Hashiba. Me and 7 others have been captured by a bunch of sentient monster-trees.

With me are:
Sam
Dorian
Ashton
Tessa
Laurence
FCG
Tommy

I managed to get out -- I'm going to get my armor back and fee the others before the trees eat us.

SEND HELP!



[A few minutes after posting, Rowen is able to shoot one of his arrows into the sky above the encampment to alert the Mountain Rescue and Wild Vallo people where they are]

I know we hate these fucking portals, but there better be one because there is not a chance in the hells that both my fiance and sister disappeared right in front of me and it can't be fixed.

Added later:

No place better to start a list.

Julian, I know you're more than capable of cooking, but if you need any help in the kitchen with Silas gone, I can offer some.

I'm not going to ask for anyone to share anything over the last week that they're uncomfortable with. But I would appreciate it if no one talked about my more unique Warlock abilities with people outside of this house in light of these recent events. I have no desire to foster an even larger sense of mistrust here.

But speaking of mistrust, Will, are you the reason Mina refuses to go to the park?

Hello. Does anyone know anything about slime specimens? I was talking to Dr. Bellner tonight and he had one on the ship, but it went missing. He said it was under control but I don't believe him.

Kit seems to think that's a bad omen, a slime specimen going missing on a spaceship. I think we should keep an eye on the labs if we can.

Has anyone been able to establish communications back home? I'd like to check in with my brother when we can.

Hi, everyone. I’m sure you’re all aware of the very recent round of vanishing friends and family again. The DOA has received reports from Vallo PD of a rash of locals disappearing again as well. It looks like we’re dealing with another portal, likely the one I’m sure we’ve all seen hovering over the mountaintops.

I received word from Keith Kogane a few minutes ago that he’d taken the Black Lion up to take a closer look through the portal. He reported seeing nothing more than stars and darkness but received readings of a lack of oxygen as he ventured out farther.

It is the DOA’s belief that, much like last month, the missing are on the other end of this new portal. With that in mind, please reply if you meet the following criteria:

  • You would like to be a member of the rescue team.
  • You have a usable spacecraft and are open to transporting teammates through the portal.

  • We’re going to move on this as quickly and efficiently as we can. Those who reply should report at 4:30 PM with packed bags here: [mountain coordinates].

    If it isn't too presumptuous, I would request tomorrow evening off and away from my duties at the home. Is that acceptable?

    It's been a very long time since I've been to China and this is obviously the furthest away I've been, but seeing my daughter running around in a dragon onesie while eating jiaozi and longevity noodles makes it feel closer than ever before. It is definitely one of the better Lunar New Years that I can remember, which feels pretty fortuitous for the year itself.

    That being said, I hope everyone enjoys prosperity, dumplings, and happiness going into the new year.

    VALLO PRIME, RESCUERS, & FLIPPED REBELS
    Full disclosure, I am not a full-time employee with the magic department at the DOA, but so many of us are gone and you are stuck with me, delivering good and bad news. Hello!

    The good news is that thanks to the brilliant researchers in both our Vallos looking into where Bronislovas's resting place might be located on the other side of the portal, we're pretty damn sure of where it is, between his notes, so many books, and what info we got from Beketh. The thought is that it's within a cave system in one of the mountains by the city. Here's a map, for your reference:

    [pretend there's a cool looking map here with probable mountains highlighted]

    Unfortunately that's more or less all we can do on our side for now, so it's up to all of you fine people over there to pick up the trail. If we can do things, we'll do it, just let us know.

    And now the bad news: the portal is causing some oddities. The portal monsters from a few months ago are back, seemingly being created by or summoned by the portal itself. If you have fighting skills of some sort but aren't already involved with defense, please reach out to Evie and Kara and they'll get you sorted as needed.

    The other odd thing is that the area around the portal seems to be, for lack of a better way of putting it, turning into what we can only assume the other side of the portal looks like. Buildings are suddenly in disrepair and there's a lot of graffiti talking about your Revenants and how disliked they are, missing people posters, that kind of stuff. This started yesterday and the area affected has only grown today, so it would appear we're on even more of a timetable than we thought.

    All right, that is all I have for the moment, so...go team?

    Testing, testing. Are you getting this? We're using my connection to the Black Lion and the quintessence tech in my arm to form a bridge between the networks. Basically, we're playing telephone through a giant sentient spaceship. Stop by and thank him for me? I'm sure he's stressed by all of this.

    Anyway, assuming someone is reading this, on the other side of the portal is a parallel Vallo. We've made contact with a group of Outlanders here and confirmed that they are alternate versions of some of our lost people. Most of them have lived here for years and some have different memories of their home worlds. They've formed a rebellion against another group, made up of more of our lost people. They call themselves the Court of Revenants and they're the reason this message is filtered as best as I can get it.

    Please be aware that Council members might look like someone you've lost, but they have apparently taken control of this Vallo through force and terror. There is a stalemate between the Council and the Rebels because any physical violence here creates what they call Echoes - spectral enemies that attack anyone close by and only stop when the fighting stops.

    Now I'm sure you're wondering where our Outlanders are. I've been told the people here suffered a violent headache and a flash of memories that then faded when the portal opened on this side. It can't be a coincidence. I suspect our people are tangled up metaphysically with their counterparts. I have no idea how to separate them. If you have any theories, please don't be shy.

    As for the rescue team, everyone is accounted for and safe. Our focus right now is planning a recovery mission. A few rebels were taken captive just before we arrived. Keith is We will get them back. In the meantime, please feel free to use this post to brainstorm and reconnect. Since I know it'll be a question on your minds, here is the list of the captured:
    • Ashton Greymoore
    • Dorian Storm
    • Keith Kogane
    • Luffy
    • Nancy Wheeler
    • Noctis Lucis Caelum
    And a list of the Council and their allies:
    • Caleb Widogast
    • William Laurence
    • Henry Townshend
    • Kellach Donnallen
    • Ostyia Rabalska
    • Teddy Kaplan-Altman
    • Billy Kaplan
    • Abigail Blyg
    • Lan Xichen
    • Lee Thompkins
    • Joshua Rosfield
    • Julian Blackthorn
    • Ronan Lynch
    • Serefin Meleski
    • Silas
    Anyone not on either of these lists should be able to see and respond to this post. Okay, enough rambling. Time to see if this actually works.

    I understand there have been happenings this week, but I ask forgiveness as I talk about myself as today marks the end of my first week as a teacher of music, a sentence that I would have never imagined saying at almost any point in my life. As unexpected a change of pace, though, it's a real good one. It was a rewarding week and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes moving forward.

    Though, for the record: if any of your young ones come home with songs that might easily get stuck in your head, I apologize in advance.

    I can't pretend to understand the mechanics of what brought me to Vallo, but your holiday traditions were diverting, at least. From what I understand, the point now is to get through the winter until the thaw. Are there any more upcoming holidays that I should be aware of?

    [ Filtered to residents of Blackthorn Manor ]

    Did any of you see fit to make resolutions, if I might be so curious?

    And secondly, when would you wish the holiday decorations to make their departure?

    I'm fond of the holiday desserts I've discovered here so far. Maybe a little too fond. Luffy, come eat the rest of this chocolate pecan pie before I make myself sick.

    A question for the rest of you, if you're bored and want to help a man out. What dessert would you recommend I try if you only had one pick? I have a soft spot for chocolate and citrus, but I'm willing to try anything once.

    Does anyone have any toddler-friendly ideas for Christmas or Solstice celebrations? We've only been able to do things at home or with Julian and Emma in the past few years, because we've had to keep a low profile, but that isn't as much of a problem here and I'd like to take the opportunity for us to go a little overboard this year as a family.

    Also any tips to get a "cool" teenager to wear a matching "decidedly uncool" family sweater.

    FILTERED AWAY FROM TSC:
    Has anyone experienced having ah- two spouses, here, from two separate times?

    To explain a little further; Will and Jem were connected and shadowhunter partners before I met them. I had a connection with both of them, and ultimately became engaged to Jem. Circumstances out of our control separated us, but with his blessing, I later married Will. This was a hundred and fifty years ago. We had a full and happy and wonderful marriage with him, until he passed.

    I'm immortal, so I continued on as I am now, but grieving. It took decades, but Jem was healed and we were able to be together again, we married a few years ago and now we have Mina.

    They are both here, and I am very lucky, make no mistake, to be lucky enough to have them. Will is from the early days of our marriage, and Jem is from our current time - they're both very happy to be with each other again, as we've always loved all of each other, bonded as family. But it is becoming a little awkward and I haven't figured out how to breach the "who am I married to" topic in terms of intimacy with them.

    I know this place is strange so if anyone has any advice, I welcome it.

    I have been here a few days despite not introducing myself here, but I don't think I can be blamed. My daughter has been the best distraction and I've been trying to make up for a month away in the few days I've had. The jury is still out if I've succeeded, but I'm perfectly content to continue trying either way.

    I'm James Carstairs, though everyone calls me Jem. My family has all been here, some for a while and one for a while, and I'm sure they're all acquainted with some of you already, so hello and thank you for being kind and welcoming to Tessa, Mina, and Kit. And Will, of course, though I know we're both guilty of being recent arrivals.

    That said, I'm sure that I have plenty of time to go before I can call myself settled, but I'm wondering: for those who have been here a long while--or those who haven't, I'm not picky--what would you personally say are some of the first things you should do or see here? I'm lucky to have had several from home who could point me in some directions, but I'm curious about opinions beyond my people.
