Myranda: "We would be most grateful if you could help. However many have tried, but they have had mediocre results; you see Princess Rokarr, while we do have the means to lower radioactive reactions, it is quite hard for as to follow the patterns of the radioactive waves that travel through Remelax's wind. It is as if at one time there is radioactive activity in the northern hemisphere and suddenly it vanises and re-appears at some other place of the planet - if however we had the means to predict where that wave of radioactive heat appears we could vanquish it, but we have come to the conclusion that they're randomly generated"

Rosdax's eyes turned back to their normal purple colour and he nearly fainted, crewmember Alina who was sitting next to him held him as soon as she could.
Myranda: "Private?"
Rosdax: "Sorry ,I don't know what happened to me, pherhaps it's the climate of Remelax"
Alina: "You should get some rest, all these maintainance duty you were concerned with during the travel dried out the energy off of you"

Rokarr: "Im not sure if Kilysa has shown you yet but we have what we call Energy Harvesters, They can sense radioactive energy, absorb it, & feed off of it. they are typically over 94 meter in length, we could have some of them live here for a limited time a soak up the radiation when it is active, but only with proper permission of course."

Kilysa to Rokarr, covert messeges: "we have never encountered radiation that acted like that, it may cause the Harvesters to mutate."

Rokarr to Kilysa covert: "Rokarr yes I hope so, we still need to become stronger ourselves to contend with the strange events & nations in this galaxy"

Rosdax's eyes turned back to their normal purple colour and he nearly fainted, crewmember Alina who was sitting next to him held him as soon as she could.
Myranda: "Private?"
Rosdax: "Sorry ,I don't know what happened to me, pherhaps it's the climate of Remelax"
Alina: "You should get some rest, all these maintainance duty you were concerned with during the travel dried out the energy off of you"

worker drones run up with several medium sized leaves filled with a sort of liquid

Kilysa: "If you need energy these may help, its a thin sap like juice that will give you a boost of energy for long periods, its not like some substances that spike up & crash suddenly, it gives you an even boost that is very consistent for several hours, my last calculation was 200 ml would provide extra energy for about 8 hours depending on want the consumer is doing, also if any of you wish to rest in the pods in one of the Sleeping chambers"

Myranda to Rokarr: "It seems like a good idea and trust me; myself and all of the other descendants of old Remelaxians would want nothing more than to be able to return to our ancestors' planet, and we would be more than grateful for that. But, to be honest, I'm sceptical too ...this kind of radioactivity is abnormal  ...some kind of anomaly caused by a combination of forced climate change and the megatons of bombs dropped by the sieging fleet. I think we should contact my lord on the matter - What do you propose?"

Rosdax to Kilysa: "Thank you for your concern kind princess, however I'm a soldier of House Martael and I'm no stranger to hardship; I shouldn't have let myself to succumb to weariness in the first place  ...as a matter of fact, I already feel much better."
Myranda: "Wellspoken private, but you look awful and I need you alive  ...I order you to accept princess Kilysa's offer and go to sleep right away."
Rosdax: "As you command captain."
Rosdax bowed towards the princesses and his captain before drinking the substance and being driven to the sleeping chambers.

Rokarr to Myranda: "I'm certain the Harvesters can handle it, we've introduced them to various forms of radiation even in their infancy, but yes consult your house leader first before making any moves."

Kilysa analyzed Rosdax symptoms, it seemed that the mask drained those the user takes control of& possibly the user themselves.

Rosdax arrived in the chamber the soldier drones sleep in, all over the floor, walls , & ceiling were large slit like openings, Rosdax could see several soldier drones crawling in or out of them, finding an open slit in the wall Rosdax crawled into a small room 260 cm x 260 cm x 1.2 m high, that seemed to be made of very soft organic material.

Myranda to Rokarr: "I'll do as such right away"
Myranda made the preparations to communicate with her lord, by putting down and adjusting her holograph device. After a couple of minutes the holographic representation of Lord Martael, half-naked and slightly annoyed, as well as part of his surroundings appeared.
Myranda to Lord Ator: "My Lord, I'm terribly sorry, I'm sorry to interrupt your majesty in the middle of the night  ...I actually forgot about timezones, but this message is of outmost importance, our guests will inform you further, but it seems there has been found a way of actually removing the firestorms from Remelax thanks to the good will and knoweledge of Princesses Rokarr and Kilysa."
Lord Ator: "Princess Kilysa and Princess ...Rokarr, I ask your understanding for my unfitting presentation, especially from Princess Rokarr who I meet for the first time. These are great news, your in-"
Sultry background female Ghashyr voice: "Atry, I'm waaaaitiiiing~"
Lord Ator turned back his head and muttered as silently as possible: "Shhhh! I'm talking to some ...err, foreign dignitaries from afar, now, go back to bed!"
Lord Ator to Kilysa & Rokarr: "Sorry for this intermission from my  ..uh, courtesan. As I was saying, your intention to help end the firestorms of Remelax is admirable and if your abilities are actually capable of doing that ...well then, myself, House Martael and my subjects would be more than grateful and ...generous if you managed to do so, but alas! There have been some recent complications that I would personally inform you about tommorow if it wasn't for paladin Myranda's urgent message; due to some illogical suspicions raised within the Empire regarding House Martael's relations with your kind, certain restrictions were placed in order by my liege, so, I'd ask of you to continue our cooperation as is permitted, only in a more ...careful manner."

Rosdax crawled to a rather hidden spot inside the room and being quite curious he pulled out a nanomechanism, a material identificator, quite expensive and rare equipment for a mere military engineer on a scout mission. Upon the first revealing data Rosdax was shocked "this  ....this ship, it seems as if it is an alive organism, the indications are completely crazy, and by the eternal fire! The possibilities are tremendous. *sigh* Why do I always get the mad missions" he thought to himself and layed down upon the room's "wall".

Rokarr: "Think nothing of your presentation, only a small number of Formics even wear clothes."

Kilysa: "Lord Atry, ah Ator, please forgive us we did not mean to interrupt your.... coitus rituals. I assure you we will be careful"


As Rosdax layed down the chambers temperature seemed to adjust trying to find the most comfortable setting for him.

12 Hive Carriers commanded by Unar & Lafash stop by Remelax coming back from their exploration mission in the Gamma quadrant, they briefly spoke to their sisters making sure they were ok & then warped away back to Rith'Essa relaying messages to their mom.

Swarm Queen Zagara was preparing her fleet to join Kilysa & Rokarr in meeting the Ghashyr Queen, she had several of the new hybrid-Formics with her

Lord Ator quite ashamed by his presentation looked at Myranda, obviously angered by her mistake and then back to the princesses with a serious and determined look in his eyes
"I'm glad you understand, I would never allow myself to dishonour you in that way if it was in my powers to not do so. Anyway, I will allow you to try and rid Remelax of radiation, if you succeed you may ask anything from me and my House   ...even pherhaps land on the surface of the planet, provided that the ones holding the land will swear an oath of fealty to me."
He bowed his head and addressed everyone present.
"Captain Myranda, if the princesses proceed with their plans you will report to me everything step by step ...do  mind to inform me before you do so in private, this is your second strike   ...Princesses, I wish that you will find enlightment for your kind intentions and I wish you luck in your endeavors on behalf of all Frontierers."
--
Rosdax shut his eyes and tried to rest as the most peculiar and frightful thoughts were crossing his mind "Well, Rosdax my boy, you have made it in the battle of Qor'maalch, survived the killer-plants of Mercura and withstood forty-six visits of your mother-in-law ...a bunch of ant aliens is not going to scare you!" he thought to himself and fell asleep.

Meanwhile in Shyr the Empress and all Great Houses of Homeworlders were preparing for the great event, while the capital city of Datha was dressed in the red banners of House Valxaryen and illuminated by ceremonial fire-fountains, only used during the enthronement of Emperors. Furthermore, one-tenth of the Throne's Fleet was ordered to take positions around the Ghashyr homeworld as a security measure.
In the 'Mourning Halls' palace a council was called by the Empress; many nobles were there, as well as priests, ministers and the majority of House Valxaryen, all of them puzzled and anxious to get answers regarding the recent events.
Empress Myrsa: "By the power granted to me from the flames of Azrax and my divine birthright as a daughter of the dragon of Datha, I Empress Myrsa XIX of great house Valxaryen have a most important announcement to make to you that will answer your questions as to why I ordered the city to prepare for celebrations; My loyal subjects, as you already know we have contacted alien life, the ones called Formics, inside our dominion  ...what you don't know is that the Formic Queen and her daughters will be visiting Shyr to enact the beggining of our official relations, as such I order you to restrain yourselves to avoid any unfortunate events, since we don't have sufficient knoweledge on the aliens' intentions, or culture - you're therefore ordered to act with calmness and avoid contacting the aliens in any way other than official protocols. The council is dismissed."
As Myrsa left the throne room and headed towards the Moonlit Quarters a male Ghashyr dressed in green and bearing a Moon-shaped pin in his cape approaches her: "Unburnt One, are you sure that meeting is a good idea? These 'Formics' could be laores in oscax clothing for all we know  ... my House's informers say that the Martaels have been asking them favours."
Myrsa smiled and responded calmly "Don't worry my dear Nevihdor, I already know first-hand about Ator's plans and he will regret his choice quite soon ...it's the Formics I'm not sure how I will deal with, as this situation demands tremendously careful handling.   ...make sure that my brother is occupied during the visit - and don't call me Unburnt One, we're alone."
Nevihdor: "Sure Unbur-..love, I'll take care of it as soon as possible, my father has plenty of work for your brother."

Rokarr: "You do not dishonour us at all, you simply allowing us to absorb the radiation is a great help. Though we may have a request if the endevour is successful."

Kilysa: "As this is your home world we will not ask for land here, im certain your people will want to reclaim there own, we may ask to collect a colony of any insect species you have."

Rokarr & Kilysa: "Thank you Lord Ator"

---------------

Rokarr secretly starts a conversation with Kilysa as they speak with Ator.

Rokarr: "Looking at these creatures hierarchy makes me wonder what mother is going to do with the hybrid Formics, as they are half Chrymerion they will want to engage in a more humanoid like society, things will be changing quickly, but anyway what was the conclusion of the data you collected while scanning the planet?

Kilysa: "This planet has great potential, the radiation is different for the most part from what we have encountered but has a few similarities which lead me to believe that our Energy Harvesters could not only absorb the radiation but grow stronger from it giving themselves & our ships more power & capabilities, but due to the volatility of this radiation the Harvesters will become feral for a time until they molt so we will have to clear he planet. Before I realized this planet belonged to another species I was thinking it has great terraforming potential, but we will need to speak with mother & the Ghashyr Queen before we go that far, but for now we will collect the radiation."

Rokarr: "Very well, be sure to do no more then that until we speak with mother, From what Ator stated more internal conflict is brewing among the Ghashyr so we need to stay clear from it as much as possible for now, mother should be here soon & your ship is almost ready, so we should go ahead & send out Harvesters to start collecting.

Myranda & her crew feel a rumble like giants are walking by the ships, Rokarrs other ships land in other areas of the planet opening to allow the Harvesters to walk out & start their hunt.   
---------------

Zagara's fleet of 20 Hive Carriers passed by Unar & Lafash, they noticed a change in their mother, her presence was very majestic, a sense of calm & peace swept over them as she shared everything that transpired while they were gone, she would teach & train all her daughter in some of the new abilities she has gained if they are able. Unar & Lafash continued their way back home while Zagara proceeded to Remelax.

Lord Ator raised his eybrows upon listening to Kilysa's request: "Only Insect species? Of course, how blasphemous of me to consider material wealth and not an act of Illumination. I vow to provide you with as many colonies as you can fill in that spaceship of yours if you succeed!" He then turned towards Myranda "I task you to bring a specimen of Remelaxian fire ants as a sign of goodwill to the Princesses."
Myranda: "As you command my Sarmo˘r!"
Ator: "Farewell for now princess Rokarr and princess Kilysa, may the Light illuminate us all!"

Back in the 'Mourning Halls' in Shyr the atmosphere was quite heavy, a young male Ghashyr in the private quarters clad in well-polished arsaz armour approached the Empress filled with anger "Sister, I swear to the eternal fire and whichever gods our idiot subjects believe in; If you try to get rid of me another time by using that Aval boy-toy of yours, Nevihdor, I'll slit his pretty throat like an emaron. His father just tasked me, the Prince, with solving a dispute between the Fergrangals and one of their subjects! But I'm not outraged about this   ...Uncle Martox and the rest of our House has already grown tired of your disrespect towards your own family, but your decision to welcome these ..these  ..these psychic ants to Shyr is hubris!"
Myrsa: "I guess you, uncle Martox and the rest of our House has a better idea? Pherhaps bringing our fire-whips out and teach these aliens we know nothing about a lesson on Ghashyr hospitality, no?"
Malkhor: "That would be preferable than allowing those monsters to set foot on our own homeworlds!"
Myrsa: "You're an idiot Malk, thank the gods I was born before you; If we did as you wish we could invoke the destruction of our entire species, for all we know. And if you dare insult or threaten me again you won't be able to use that tongue of yours to whine about your duties anymore. Enjoy your trip to Ruhath, little brother!"
Malkhor: "You will reget this, 'unburnt one'..."

( 'Mourning Halls': the Ghashyr imperial palace, 'Aval': derogatory nickname for members of House Galgatyen, 'emaron': a Shyrite animal used as cattle, 'Unburnt One': honorific style of Ghashyr emperors/ the Ghashyr version of 'Your Majesty' )

Kilysa: "Thank you Lord Ator"

Rokarr & Kilysa: "Farewell for now"

------

Zagara's fleet arrive above Remelax she psionically greets her daughters as shes landing & they share with her everything that has happened, withher are  6 of her grandchildren, 3 Krith Queens & 3 Krith Warlords.


-
Krith_Queen: but with a orange or tan coloration like a younger formic queen
-
-
-

-
Krith _Warlord
-

The mechanical components of Kilysa's ship start powering up.

Kilysa: "Ah yes the ship is ready"

Zagara walks in but even Kilysa & Rokarr are a bit startled, Zagara's eyes are black as any other formic Queen but her pupils have a light blue glow around them. there is a aura of peace & harmony around.

Kilysa: "Mother what happened?"

Rokarr: "Your powers have increased greatly, you have changed."

Zagara: "I have alot I must share with you but later, greetings Myranda & crew I am Swarm Queen Zagara, my daughters have already told me how you meet, & the situation of your world, I assure you the Energy Harvesters will accomplish their task, it is what I originally designed them for, though it will take about 4-6 months judging by the planets size & number of Harvesters my daughters are using, Kilysa will your new friends be joining us? we have an appointment to keep."   

The Krith Formics observe Myranda & her crew closely & then audibly speak to them as if they were still getting use to speaking with there mouths, the Krith Queens introduce themselves first: "Greetings we are, Tarakith, Sivtress, Rynza, XerKhon, Tegedar, & Valgorr"

(Krith is the name of the Hybrid Formics created from Chrymerion DNA)

Myranda puts back the communication device in her sack and  turns to Alina Orgon and Thiror Askranlach "You heard Lord Ator, I want you and  Lieutenant Thiror to organise a hunting party and capture alive six Remelaxian Fire Ants including a Queen as soon as possible. You may use the ship to transfer them here."
Alina and Thiror: "Yes Captain!"
Thiror immediately opened up a hologram of the planet through his mobile holographic device and gave the order "Locate lifeforms: Taraxynsceres Paeren Remelaxen". After the results came up both started making weather calculations and wore their Arsazesyn heat-armours, asking permission from Kilysa and Rokarr to leave the ship.

Before the two Princesses could respond the Formic Queen made her presence known. All of Myranda's crew kneeled and bowed their heads, as is customary when a sovereign lord is present amongst Ghashyr warriors.
Myranda to Queen Zagara: "Unburnt One, your greatness' presence illuminates us all  ..I am the captain of 'Asalya', Myranda Lorinvax, paladin of House Martael and the Frontiers, I speak on behalf of my crew and lord and I welcome your royal excellency in planet Remelax. May your reign last an eternity."
The rest of the crew remains kneeled while Myranda turns to the Krith Queens "Your presence means a lot and honours my species and lord that you decided to visit our worlds as well, Queen Tarakith, Queen Sivtress, Queen Rynza, Queen XerKhon, Queen Tegedar and Queen Valgorr. My crewmembers are lieutenant Thiror Askranlach (Thiror gets up, salutes the queens and bows his head in respect) private Alina Orgon (does the same as Thiror) and chief engineer Rosdax Amys who currently recovers from a biological mulfunction and is not present.
...However, and I hope I'm not offending you, I could not help but notice your appearance is vastly different from Princess Kilysa and Rokarr and you also speak with a physical voice  ...you almost seem like Ghashyr!"

(ooc: forgive me I just realized the way I wrote my last post did not explain this very well, but XerKhon, Tegedar, & Valgorr are Krith males, aka Warlords, but ill just be more specific in the future)

Zagara gave a slight bow in respect.

Zagara: "Unburnt One, im not quite familiar with this term, it is my pleasure to meet you Myranda Lorinvax, & your crew Thiror Askranlach, Alina Orgon, & I suppose ill meet Rosdax Amys later after he has awaken."

The Krith Queens & Warlords look at each other a moment & then their Grandmother & Aunts.

Queen Tarakith: "No you do not offend us, Yes indeed we are different, our Grandmother introduced DNA from our closets allies species who is an humanoid race transforming us into a hybrid of Formics & Chrymerions giving us the ability to speak Psionically & Physically, as well as others."

Warlord XerKhon: "Ghashyr, gauging the difference of Chrymerions & Ghashyr it seems possible that they are related, in fact they could be one of the races that spawned from the Chrymerions ancestors."

Warlord Valgorr: " I think your right brother lets take a closer look"

Valgorr raised his left hand & Myranda & her crew start levitating in the air, Zagara raised her first right hand causing Myranda & her crew to gently land back on the floor.

Zagara: "VALGORR, you know the rules about using your powers on others, I will be dampening your telekinetic's for a time to teach you manners, please forgive my Grand children, their development is new territory for our race, they are nearly at the end of their first puberty cycle, I realize at 2 meters in height they may seem fully grown but they have at least another meter & a second puberty cycle before they are fully grown, It seems my arrival interrupted something so please dont allow me to keep you from your operations."

(OOC: Don't worry we'll ignore it and presume something went wrong in translation, ie; Formicss'word for a monarch could be only female which would make sense, considering your species nature)

As Myranda was about to respond to Queen Zagara and the Krith, she and her crew lifted in air causing them much surprise. As she landed she fixed her tunic and turned to Zagara and the rest of the formic delegation "Your greatness, Princesses, Krith Warlords and Queens: I'd prefer if we were left in the gentle care of Remelax's gravity, thank you, now were was I..   ...ah certainly! Unburnt One is how we Ghashyr call our Emperor, the one that sat in the fire-tongued throne and was not burned from the flames of Azrax, it short of means 'divine' which I'm sure is an appropriate style for your greatness, considering your long reign that your noble daughters have mentioned. Queen Tarakith, this is an incredible scientific feat you speak of, Princess Kilysa mentioned this before, but I had to witness this with my own eyes to understand how marvelous this is"
Myranda turns to XerKhon "I don't know of this Chrymerions species you speak of and how they could be related to us; all scientific evidence proves that we naturally evolved from primate mammals in our homeland of Shyr   ...I would not rule out a coincidence, considering the vastness of the world we all live in, but it is an intriguing theory."

Myranda turns to her crew "You listened to her greatness, return to your task"
Thiror: "Right Away Captain! We'll return once we've found the requested six Fire Ants"
Alyna: "Yes of course! Permission to speak?"
Myranda: *sigh* "Go on private.."
Alyna: "I loved the levitation! We had a machine back in Doth that-"
Myranda: "Enough, learn to set your priorities straight private, now go"
Alyna: "Yes Captain.." :C

Zagara looks at Valgorr a moment who looks embarrassed

Zagara: "Valgorr, apologize..."

Valgorr: "Forgive me Myranda & crew, it was not my place to invade your space like that."
 
Zagara: "Ah I see, no need to give an old one as me such a title I am not divine I assure you, but thank you for the gesture, if I may ask what is this Azrax?"

Tarakith: "We find your species fascinating as well, though similar you posses unique features of any species we've encountered."
 
XerKhon: "Interesting, we would like to learn more of your species in time of  course."

Valgorr looked at Alyna with a almost excited expression realizing she enjoyed his actions.

---------------------

As Myranda's crew went about there mission they could see a Energy Harvester in the distance absorbing a firestorm through the spikes on its back but it immediately started acting a bit wild & feral letting out huge deep growls but it only lasted a few moments, Kilysa was actively calming them down psionically, so far only 5% of the radiation as been relieved.

The Formics spoke secretly to each other deciding that as soon as Myranda's Crew returns Zagara & her Daughters will leave to meet Empress Myrsa & the grandchildren will stay on Remelax & oversee the Energy Harvesters.

Myranda felt somewhat awkward that a foreign lord apologised to her, a mere paladin-captain. She bowed her head gently while looking towards Valgorr "Your excellency I didn't mean to insult you, it's just that most Ghashyr feel rather uncomfortable when they don't have control of their bodies, most..."
Myranda then turned immediately to Zagara "Unburnt One, being divine for us Ghashyr means first and foremost being the most wise, the most pure and of the highest stature, not necessarily a supernatural being. Ah! Azrax, Emperor Azrax Taggaren the Saint, he was the Emperor that constructed the Fire-Tongued Throne and performed the first Enflamed Enthronement by setting the Eternal Fire on the throne made of Arsazezyn and sat on it while it was covered in flames; he remained unburnt and was crowned Talmyr, god-king, Emperor of the Ghashyr. His fire still burns the Fire-Tongued Throne and all Emperors have to pass the aforementioned ritual to be considered rightful and pure."
Myranda to Tarakith & XerKhon: "I guess this is natural, considering every planet in the universe is different   ...Even we colonials, consider Shyr and Shyrites, to be different in comparisson to us." the captain then noded condescendingly to XerKhon "I'll make sure of it, Lord XerKhon!"

Before the crew got out Alyna turned her head for a moment and smiled at Valgorr.

Thiror and Alyna gazed the Energy Harvester as it was absorbing the radiation, suddenly the firestorm started vanishing as it usually did after a short amount of time*.
Thiror: "Ok private enough sightseeing, let's get to work! Where are the Fire Ants located?"
Alyna: "North-East continent, shall we take our ship?"
Thiror: "No, I think our HydTra(hydropneymatic transporter) will be able to carry Six Fire Ants, they weight around 50 kg each..."
The two crew members hastily get on the old vehicle parked next to the Formic spaceship, and head off towards the location of the Ants.

*(It's a puzzle, you have to solve the puzzle in order to clean Remelax from radiation. I'll give you a hint: the firestorms have a source and if observed from space they move as if they were orbited by Remelax.)
