There was a place, known to a very selected few, built deep underground. A place full of gnomes, called the Lair of Thoughts. For many years, the most controversial ideas ever thought of on Krynn (some which caused the idea-makers to be hunted for their crazy and potentially dangerous ideas) were built upon here. It was home to the MissingSockGathererthatDefiesSpaceandTimebyaFractionVersion1.5, the OverpoweredSteamControlledOvenforKids, and the frighteningly most popular AutomatedSelfPleasureProviderSpecificallyMadeForGnomesVersion6.8.

It was also home of the fabled space-travel-vehicle, a modified version of the one that had been used centuries ago. In fact, it had been modified to the point of no longer looking anything like the original. This wasn't a bad thing, however, for some of the gnomes who worked on it came from the legendary City of Lost Names, and they were known for actually succeeding in creating fully, or at least partially, functional inventions.

The space-travel-vehicle was now of sleek, smooth design... at least to a gnome it was. To any sane person it would look absolutely mishappen(sp). It was a spherical shape, made mostly of wood. Some of it, however, was steel. Several gnomes had happened to get a hold of random pieces of armor, which explained why there where family crests, symbols of the Knights of Solamnia, and symbols of the Knights of Takhisis littered randomly along the body of the vehicle.

The gnomes had also discovered a rare resource that is much more powerful and easy to use than steam. It was a thick, black liquid that they called "fuel", which was short for the name of the gnome who discovered it; Fuelondomthegnomewholovedtousetheautomatedselfpleasureproviderspecificallymadeforgnomesversion6.5. They only used it for the space-travel-vehicle, since it was very difficult to find.

The gnomes had never actually used the vehicle to enter space since the last time, since there was no way of testing it without leaving Krynn.

But, this day, excitement ran through the entire underground lair. Gnomes were running frantically in all directions, preparing for what would be one of the most important days in the history of Krynn.

To one gnome, this was the most important day of his life. He was Aldmore, whose lifequest was to reach further into space than anyone else. He was short for the average gnome and had a stubble of a beard on his chin. He preferred to keep it short, since it constantly got in the way of his blueprints. His head was bald and made a dull shine. He was one of the gnomes that came from the City of Lost Names.

Aldmore was in the space-travel-vehicle, double and triple-checking that everything was in proper order. He fixed some misplaced labels and made sure that the buttons and knobs were attached correctly. He tested some cranks, bolted some gears, and fixed some chains. After about the twelth time around, he was satisfied and left the vehicle.

Just outside of it, gnomes were everywhere preparing the equipment for launch. If one looked straight up, they could see that the lair had opened a large, wide vertical tunnel for the ship to go through. Sunlight poured through the opening, causing many gnomes to wear sunlight-blocking-goggles that were made for this such occasion. Each gnome would have been blinded otherwise, due to being underground and devoid of light for so long.

Aldmore had quickly slipped on his goggles and sat at a table to write more notes in his personal lifequest-journal.

OOC: I know there had been a book with gnomes going to space with... I think Kitiara... not sure. So this is obviously not original. But, I didnt think anyone else had ever posted anything like this in the forum, so I thought I would give it a try.Why do humans worship god?

One of the only people in the Lair of Thoughts who was not gnomish by origin, and was crazy enough to enter the hush-hush, doesn't exist *wink, wink*, place was Astella, the Renegade Magius, formally of the Red Robes.

The human lady was in her late fourties, but seemed to not be aging at all, still looking to be about twenty years old. This was due mainly to an invention of the gnomes that they tested on her. It was an anti-aging, anti-winkle, steam-powered laser. Surprisingly, it worked remarkably well. Her long, wavy black hair was kept up in a bun as to keep from anything happening to it. Her eyes, which seemed to hold a too much wisdom for someone who appeared so young, were a deep hunter-green.

Astella smiled and shook her head, looking down at Aldmore while shielding her eyes from the sun, so unused to light. "Are you sure you know what you're doing, Aldmore?" She asked huskily, her voice being the only other thing that seemed in any way aged about her. Kilairiandralsilvantaslik..

Aldmore turned away from his journal and glared at Astella. "Do I know what I am doing?! Of course I know what I am doing! Thisismylifequest! I have been working on this for... well, formywholelife! You see how excited everyone is! They've been waitingforsolong to see us launch this!" He yelled excitedly, jumbling some of his words together.

The gnome stood out of his chair, gathered his things, and walked off to meet with some of the other gnomes who would join him in space.

Aldmore soon entered a room that had a single round table in the center. There were several chairs around the table, each with a name labeled on it. He proceeded to sit in his personal chair, then waited patiently.

OOC: If anyone would like to play one of the gnomes that would be flying into space along with Aldmore, feel free to. If not, I will have to add 'em in.

BIC: Astella shook her head and sighed. "I should have expected as much from a gnome," she muttered to herself. "I've been down here for so long, you'd think I'd learn to get along with them better!" She then hurried after Aldmore into the meeting room.

"Ya know, you're not the only one who's looking forward to this! We've all worked towards this, not just you. Even if I'm not a gnome and don't have a lifequest, this is a big thing to me too!"

There was a loud explosion down one all and then a small figure flew into the round table room hitting the wall and groaning as he hit the ground. "I told you not to press that button Smitly," Coins ran in after him. He helped Smitly up,"So I think it's safe to say back to the drawing boards?"

Smitly pulled his goggles off,"Why of course not, sure we have to change the name from a thirteeninchrulethatwouldcauseahugechangeinsociety to some sort of gnome cannon device. Now where are we, rats. It's time to go already, and I was hoping to bring the 13 inch ruler along for testing."

The two looked at Aldmore sitting in his named chair at the round table. The mage was behind him. "Well now Smitly I guess we can worry about the 13 inch ruler when we get back," Coins walked over and sat in his marked seat. The soot covered Smitly walked over and sat in his seat.

"So, the time has finally come?" Coins said.

OOC: Smitly is half thinker gnome half regular. Jumper his kender partner) is currently with Coin's son and Smitly's alternate deminsional self. Coins's is a copper dragon but loves gnomes and their machinery. He isn't as crazy as a gnome but he is very simialr to one. I don't care if the other gnomes know if Coins is a dragon or not.

"Ah, Smitly! Coins!" Aldmore greeted them, "Do you know how much behind schedule we are? This meeting was supposed to have started five minutes ago! This is catastophric! This could very well mess everything up. We will start immediately, and if the rest decide to show up, too bad for them."

He quickly rummaged through his piles of paper sitting in front of him on the table. After a few minutes of rummaging, Aldmore yelled, "Drat! What did he do with the procedure list? IspecificallytoldBinkinstoputitinmyfile! Thatstupid---"

Another gnome came running full speed into the room, his whole body drenched in water, his long beard dripping. He had a paper in his hand, which was flailing wildly in the air.

"Aldmore! Ialmostforgottogivethistoyou!"

The gnome ran over and slapped the paper on the table, splashing water on Aldmore. He quickly sat in the seat labeled 'Binkins'.

Aldmore wiped his face with his hand and mumbled, "Bout damn time..."

After trying to read the water-smudged ink, he shook his head. "Well, thanks to Binkins, the procedure list is now illegible..."

Binkins opened his mouth to say something, but before he could, Aldmore said, "Idon'twannaknow, Binkins! I just suggest we all suit up and get prepared. We will be leaving before nightfall."

Astella sat down in her chair muttering something about how crazy gnomes were, and she wished she'd never taken up with them. When Smitly and Coins came in she smiled... not at Smitly, but at Coins... the only other almost-sane individual in the room.

"Hey Coins, you keeping him under control?" She asked playfully, a grin spreading across her winkless face.

When Aldmore began sputtering about the procedure and Binkins gave him an illegable copy, Astella rolled her eyes. "What would you crazy little men do without me!" She sighed, exasperated. She pulled another copy of the procedure--a dry one-- out of a waterproof folder and placed it in front of Aldmore. Kilairiandralsilvantaslik..

Taking the dry copy of the procedure, Aldmore scratched his head and mumbled, "Erm... uh... thanks."

Then he began to read aloud:

" 'First we must clear the launch area of any objects and or gnomes. Then we must make sure there is enough fuel in the tank. Make sure our suits are properly worn. See to it that the thingamajigs are attached to the whats-its...' Of course this is all for the pre-launch. I believe we have the majority of this covered. Now for the actual launch... 'Crank the engine, to make sure the fuel moves smoothly into the booster-rocket-tank. Set the ignition in its proper position and ignite. Maneuver the rocket to set the ship in the wanted direction. Oh... and before all that make sure each passenger is properly strapped in at their given locations.' "

Aldmore set the paper down and asked, "Well, any questions?""Why do humans worship god?

Yet another large explosion sounded, this time followed my a high pitched shriek.
"Getbackherewiththatyoudamnedthief!" Came a gmoish voice, rather harried from running. One of the two figures ran inside of the space travel machine, hiding from anyone who might see him The other, Gnomish walked up to his comrades.
"HelloAldmore,Coins,and Smitly." He eyed the human woman and bowed, removing his slightly be-sooted hat.
"Miss." Heb owed. "Charmedtomakeyouraquiantaince. I am Rockquetfulediscovererandexplosionartsspecialist.. You may call Me Rocket.." Quickly spinning on a heel, he turned to his comrades.
"Youwouldn'tbelievewhathappened!Ihadjustfinishedmodifyingthekenderremovingbylunargravitationalpulldeficewhensomeonecamebyandsnatchedit!" HE took a deep breath, and tried to slow down for the ladies benifit.
"That someone came into our secret hush hush don't tell chamber, and now I can't seem to find him!"

That figure was noneother than the hero of the sea war, Bini Throttlebottom, slayer of the sea dragons.
He sighed, leaning against one of the crates inside the strange spehre like machine. He walked up to a flashing council and his eyes widened.
"So pretty.." He muttered. He reached out to touch a button that said something to the like of lunch...
"Well Maybe I shouldn't... Ronin told me never to touch foreign objects again.." He glanced aaround and continued to walk around the strange looking ship. It was so much bigger then it looked from the outside. Bini was impressed. He found al ittle corner and scrunched himself down.
"Maybe I'll take a little nap.." He muttered

OOC: I believe the Book was Darkness and Light from the Preludes sextet. Kitiara and sturm and a group of gnomes traveled to one of the moons.. which is rather confusig.. coz wouldn't Lunitari get really mad? :P

Astella gave the dragon a knowing smile and nodded her head. "Yes we do, I guess some things you just can't change, huh?"

After her brief exchange with Coins, Aldmore went over the procedure, which all present knew by heart. The renegade mage started to fall asleep, and would have truly done so, if her head had not begun to drift towards the table, waking her.


Aldmore shook his head at the sleeping gnome. "He needs to lay off the sugar... we are running out because of him."

"Well, I think everything is in order. I just need to double-check everything outside, and we will prepare for launch." He stood up and left the ship.

IC: After quickly greeting Gerri, Aldmore ordered the crew to get to their places.

Everything outside of the ship had been in order, and the countdown was about to begin. Many gnomes had gathered around the ship at a safe distance. They were all very excited, talking loudly to each other, debating on the outcome, and drawing sketches for a new ship if this one just happened to blow up.

Aldmore went over the check list, each statement followed by a "Check!" by one of the crew. A gnomish voice could be heard outside of the ship counting down the launch, "15... 14... 13...". The ship had begun to rumble, and the crew quickly sat in their chairs and strapped on their seat-belts.

"5... 4... 3... 2... 1... LAUNCH!"

The entire underground lair shook as the ship's rockets burst. Flames shot from under it and the ship flew out of the hole through the lair. The crew watched as they moved higher and higher into the sky.

They now were no longer on Krynn."And you will shed tears of scarlet..."

"W...what's happening? No one ever mentioned flying!" He exclaimed, grabbing hold of a bolted down chair.
"T-this is nuts!" Pulling himself down and strapping in he turned to Aldmore.
"Which moon this time Aldmore?"

"Well... we could go to the planet called Reorx's forge I believe.." He said. And it woudl only take us.....
He tried doing a calculation in his head.. "It would only take us two years!" He smiled proudly not realizng he had forgotten to carry a one somewhere along the line and it was really more like 10 years..

"I-it's the thief! It's him!" He pointed. The small Kender floated helplessly, still asleep even after take off. He floated and bumped heads with Gerri.

Astella rolled her eyes as she floated her way back to the control panel where she pressed a single button, returning a degree of gravity to the bridge. She adjusted herself in the air just in time to land on her feet, and heard the thud and crash as the others landed.

Sighing, Astella walked over to Aldmore, cuffing him lightly. "You ninny!" She growled. "You can't throw him off! You want to destabilize the whole ship? Do you want to crash back on Krynn, dying before you can even calculate how fast you're falling?! He'll have to come with us." She said, then looked at the kender appraisingly.

Coins continued to mantain the ships controls but was rather interested by the prospect of a kender aboard. He stayed in his seat remaining belted down. Smitly was taking notes on the lack of gravity when Astella activated the switch returning gravity. He dropped down and rubbed his rear end in pain.

"That kender could alter the whole mission. But Astella is right we never installed an inspace airlock. Gerri and I can put something together. But first I should go test some of the machines and get cleaned up," Smitly knew that Astella would take care of the kender so he didn't worry too much about it.

Coins finished setting course and set the ship on a sort of cruise control. "Hey, Rocket whats the engine status?" He was interested in knowing about the kender but knew he had other things to worry about first. So many questions so much edge of your seat action! What will happen next?!?

"The engine itself is fine.." He said. "The fuel's runnin a little on the cool side though.. we should probably add somemore coal."

"M-my name? It's it's Bini Throttlebottom. I'm awfully sorry for causing any trouble, but would you please not throw me out? It looks awfully scary, and besides I can help!" He space swam over to one of the buttons.

Aldmore ran over to Bini and slapped his hand. "NEVERpushabuttonifyoudon'tknowwhatyouaredoing!"

He turned to the rest of the crew and said, "I need our course set on that red planet immediately, lest we overshoot our mark and something drastic happens. And the inspace airlock sounds great, so you should get to that as soon as possible."

"PLEASE MR GNOME! DONT THROW ME OUT THERE!" He shouted, his eyes filled with terror.
Rocket piped up. "Shudap you. Aldmore can do what he wants. You tried to steal his Automated Self-Pleasure-Provider Specifically Made For Gnomes Version 6.8." He had to consciously slow his speech down.

The kender hadn't done too much harm, except for eating a better portion of the rations. The airlock wasn't quite done, which Aldmore constantly became angered at each passing minute the kender remained on the ship.

A sudden lurch in the ship signified that they were entering the planet's atmosphere. They would be on the planet in minutes.

"Where're we gonna put him?" She asked, pointing to Bini. "He'll need to be strapped in too, but it's not as if we have another chair to put him in..."

Rocket flutered and unstrapped the kender "You'll stay in here. I installed some straps onto the bed, just incase." Rocket couldn't let it be known that he had secretly befriended the Kender, and allowed him ot steal his seat. He had been planning on this for quite sometime.

The ship landed with a jerking thud, sending red dust in the air. Complete silence followed, except for the breathing of the passengers. Even the kender was quiet.

Aldmore slowly unstrapped himself and looked out the window. The dust from the landing had settled, and the most magnificent dessert could be seen. All around was red sand, red mountains in the distance. The rocks were red as well. No water flowed among the rocks. No clouds floated in the sky. No birds flew in the air. No rodents scurried on the ground.

It seemed like a lifeless, barren wasteland.

The crew suited up in their gnomish-made space suits. Lucky enough for the kender, there were a few spares brought along.

"Well, it doesn't look like we should have too many problems as yet... We could probably even breath in this atmosphere without too much of a problem... does anyone want to find out?"

Coins glared at the draconians like creatures. He hated draconians in their esance, born from the eggs of his kind, he would not be taken lightly by them. But he noticed something else he whispered to Smitly,"They speak common, that must mean someone pherhpas their leader is from Krynn."

"Your right, do you think we should ask them?"

"No, we will have our answers in time, I'm going to speak with Aldmore." Coins walk to Aldmore and told him of his suspitions. So many questions so much edge of your seat action! What will happen next?!? Stick around to see if the war will turn as last hopes and final alliances prove to be all that's left.....

The creature stared blankly at the gnome. "Draconi-what?" He asked, his common accented. "We are Avarati." The creature turned to it's cohorts.

"Draconian.." He whispered to them. Shrugging he spun back on one clawed paw.

"We are to escort you to meet the ruler of our planet." He said coolly. "Please, follow us."

Astella did not like this, not one bit. Not only were there draconians on this distant planet, but the renegade mage was being ordered around by them. This could not end well for either party. She didn't take orders from these pushy little gnomes, not from the Conclave, and certainly not from draconians.

She sent a frosty glare at the lead 'Avarati', as it had called itself. "Who is your ruler and who are you to be ordering us around?" She asked haughtily, already thinking of a defensive spell she could use, if needed.

OOC: Oh yeah… ^_^' Would Astella's magic work on this planet? I mean, she doesn't have the three moons of Krynn or anything… Whatcha think, Undead? E-mail me when krackah and you've worked out what you want to do so your fellow DM'll know what's going on, will ya?

Geristadt reached out, grasping Astella's hand, and palming her a wand. "I don't know about you, but I think you might need this Astella." Geristadt looking concerned.

"If things go awry... I hope you make it out alright." Gerri said, with selfless concern. Geristadt reloaded his musket, and put on his magic glove of storing, which held a few secret weapons of his, and was bright pink.Seeing bands play for 3 hours on a saturday night $5

The Avatari listened to the group for several moments. Raising a hand to silence them he began.

Finding none he continued.

"As you are intruding upon his land, he has decided to give mercy to you and invite you to his castle for food, and merriment."

Astella scoffed. "Ebony the Great? Who in the name of all the Gods is that, pray tell? And because we are intruders... he wants to invite us to his castle... 'for food and merriment' as you put it?" At this the woman rolled her eyes. "Well, if you say so... guess we don't have much choice, eh?"


Geristadt reached out, grasping Astella's hand, and palming her a wand. "I don't know about you, but I think you might need this Astella." Geristadt looking concerned.

Astella squeezed Gerri's hand a moment in thanks and hid the wand in her robes. This was going to be some adventure...

OOC: Dont bring our problems in here. You have noticed the lack of posts I have made, right? I just don't want to be in this one anymore. It doesnt appeal to me any longer. I apologize if I was a bit rude, that was uncalled for, but yeah... I no longer find this one interesting.

Just keep in mind if it affects people here then we should worry about it. I'm not saying it affected this but if in the future...you know what I mean. And I think the same goes for anyone whther it be you, me, anyone.


Also I don't really have much time to continue with this between FF2 and soem other threads and school it's kinda hard. So I'll probably be pulling out.

The best men always pull out so soon before the climax... in literature I mean ^_^.

Well, I'd love to RP Geristadt anywhere, and Arianna, I'm sorry that Gerri didn't get to show his crush for your literal gnome any better than a hand holding.

'Twas fun whence it lasted, maybe we can do another gnomey adventure eh Arianna? Undead? Et cetera people that elude my dead mind?

Well I'm heading to Solace for a while, both literal and metaphorical, if anyone wants me to join a campaign, mail me, it's accurate to the thing under my Avatar, also I'll update my messanger info now!

(Also if anyone just would like to talk, I'm a good listener, and a good friend)
