Several hundred kilometers from the Forest, near the monastery of Gen

Stretching his arms above his head and letting out a laugh Defender looked about him the land was quiet with out a man insight the land in harmony about him. This place seemed less likely to need him. And yet he liked it it... Seemed to be what he was striving for a place with out the need of one such as he... One to fight to protect the Workers, Learner, all of them.. But until then he must go and do what he does.

As he continues on he see that an encampment is near by. Unsure as to who it might contain Defender loosened his sword and mace before shaking his head and pulling the Axe from his back and bringing it to his right shoulder. "I know not who they are nor if they are enemy or friend.. But they still may require my... Touch." He says to himself as he heads towards the encampment.

Anger boiled through Learner.
What do you know old fool,he thought,but managed to keep himself from actually saying it,with an effort.
He smiled pleasantly
(in mind) :Li will reward me when I restore the ancient's machines,and then we will see what will become of you.

He bowed submissively,careful not to spill the load of books he carried,"I apologize Librarian,and to you as well."He sighed repeating the bow to Wanderer.
"I am sometimes..over enthusiastic."He forced his grin to stay on his face.

'I have noticed that about other inhabitants of the city Li.' Wanderer chuckled. 'Do not worry. Unfortunately, I know not a jot about languages beyond those I learn on my travels, so unless the tongue you seek is still spoken somewhere, I'm afraid I cannot help you.'

At Kan's encampment

As the Sage watched the men, he noticed yet another presence, quickly he cast forth small non-lethal projectiles made of the surrounding water taking the attackers attention away from him. Slightly injuring the attackers gave the Sage a chance to step back to see what this presence may be.

His premonition was correct and from a ways away he could see a man decending the mountain carrying with them an axe.

It's too soon to be using this much energy on such simpletons he thought to himself If I am so lucky as to have this man be a friend it would be of great help.

Learner nodded,"Well thank you,I suppose I will discover what I seek when Li wills it,no sooner."
Looking at the piles of language and history books in his arm as if remembering them he added,"Well I best resume my work."
He found that he didn't have to force his grin to Wanderer,but when he turned towards the Librarian he felt his face might break from the effort.
"I will be in my home,do call me if you need help with anything."He extended the offer to Librarian and Wanderer,but secretly hoped neither would take him up on it.
He still had a long way to go with his research.
If the old man would let me access the Older documents more frequently I know I could...
Learner realized he had stood in place a bit to long and cleared his throat.
"Right,well I'm off then."he said and made a slow,somewhat dignified(as dignified as possisble when carrying a third of your own weight in books)escape towards the door.

IN THE TOWN OF LI...

The Artist reached the top of the spiraling stairs and Opened two large golden doors leading to her quarters. In the uppermost room of the Library, the only one at that level, the residents of Li had constructed a room just for her, and had adorned it with gold, jewelry, silk, and other things that they believed such a girl would like. She plopped down onto her large, red, soft bed, and lay there, her eyes open, looking up at the ceiling.

Down in the lobby, the Librarian scoffed as he watched the learner tredge out of the room. He shook his head. "Children these days..."

"Ah yes, anyway," he looked to the Wanderer. "You may retire upstairs if you wish. It's the room at the very top behind some golden doors. You can't miss it."

IN THE ENCAMPENT OF KAN

The followers of Kan started to circle the Sage, not noticing as the Defender came near. Their circle wasn't quite complete, yet they all raised their swords.

One of them spoke up. "But you do not look like the Scholar of Xun... What business do you have here?" He looked at the Sage warily.

At that moment, they saw the projectiles being shot. Some cowered, and others looked back, and still others mumbled. "He missed... thank Kan!"

The Sage knew he was limited on energy and could only use simple attacks on these enemies. Taking up a defensive stance with his staff, he quickly called forth a small amount of water from the near by sea and flung it toward his attackers in hopes that it would slow them down. All the while watching the on coming stranger.

There was sudden screaming heard from outside the town of Li, audible to most of the people in town. The streets bang to bustle as the merchants closed their shops and ran to safety. It appeared as though the east entrance was under attack from some of Kan's followers.

"Where are they?" exclaimed the leader of the group with anger and rage as he tore a man in two with his broad sword. "Where is that Wanderer!? I'l be sure to tear him apart!"

They stormed through town wreaking havoc as they passed toward the lift.

Obsession

Learner walked into his house,located not far from the library,and with a relieved sigh set his load of books on to a low table next to the fire place,not there for light or warmth as his house was in the high part of the city that utilized many of the simpler technologies of old,but he felt a strong connection to Li when working near fire.He added some wood to the already burning fire and sank to his knees with his back to it.He looked sadly at the portrait of his parents on the opposite wall of the room.The dancing shadows causing there faces to change expressions slightly.
"I will make you proud.."he was beginning to doubt he would,but he kept telling them anyway.He had discovered a few things from the old tome,and with some guesswork,some of his inheritance,and alot of nagging of the Smith into helping him,he had invented several impressive things.
But they were TOYS! Toys compared to the awesome machines of the ancients.
Nearly crying at his own ineptitude,he prayed for Li's forgiveness."Be patient with your loyal servant my goddes."
He whispered.
Sighing he slid his most recent notes in front of him and opened a few books.

Before long the group of men had reached the strange lift. None of them knew it was a lift and much less how to operate it. Suddenly it began to rise as the leader stepped into the center. All of the men behind him simply jumped off the lift but he remained firm as he could see it was taking him to another level of the town.

The lift had reached the top and the library was now in sight along with the rest of the town in the background rising all the way up to the summit of the volcano.

Amid the sounds of battle, the Artist suddenly felt a strange force moving her. She got up and left the room, walking as if a zombie. Her state of mind was very calm, though she did not know what was going on. She figured that it was a dream of some sort, and that must be good, for dreams were often good inspiration for art. She traveled down the stairs and headed to an exit in the back of the library. There she started up the trail to the peak of the volcano...

The flames from the fresh log seemed to dance wildly as the Learner finished his sentence. The whole room seemed to flicker with the flames as the small gizmos laying on the near by bed and floor began to fidget as though they were being played with by some ominpresent power. The flames seemed to whisper softly.

"Follow the girl." it slowly spoke fading in and out "Go with her."

The voice suddenly went silent as the flame consumed the fresh log making it ashes instantly.

The minute the sling had begun to move the Wanderer had dived to the side, and now he rolled, dagger in hand, a quick survey of the area telling him his attacker had gone the other way, and that he had mere splitseconds before another missile was flung at him.

For a moment Learner didn't move,then a sense of purpose unlike any he had felt before flooded him.
"As you command," he ran to the chest and flung it open,grabbed his guantlet and thrust his right hand into it,hearing the clasps clicking into place.
He thumbed a lever with his left hand,popping the raised portion of the guantlet open,veiwing the three bladed projectiles within.He slammed it back down,satisfied.
Grabbing a pouch of replacement blades and hooking it on to his belt he ran for the door,Li hadn't told him to join the battle,but he would kill anyone who tried to stop him from following her command.
He somehow knew which girl she spoke of,the one he had seen in the library,Artist,she used to live there.Apparently she had come back.
Not even thinking to gather his notes(something he had never failed to do before no matter how desperate the circumstances) he charged out the door and ran towards the Library,hoping she was still there.

The staff of the sage went straight into skull of one of the followers of Kan. He fell to his feet, blood pouring down his bare chest to the ground.

The group split almost in half, 9 heading for the Defender with their swords drawn, and 12 continuing after the sage.

Three of the ones in the front of the Sage jumps at him, swords drawn.

The ones near the Defender were a bit more cautious because of his appearance. They held their swords out at him, attempting to keep him at a distance. One of them leapt at him with a stab aimed at his stomach.

Near the library in the town of Li -battle between Kan's followers and Learner-

The leader was still busy with his attack on the wanderer while some of the followers of Kan made their way up the hill in an attempt to help their Leader. Just as two of them reached the ledge on which the upper city rested they saw a young man running out of his home. Instantly they directed their attention to him and began to fling stones in his direction.
