(Actually it was quite of smart of you to do so, I tried in paper with calculations while I was constructing the puzzle. Congratulations, that's exactly where the source is - now you can understand why I used the word "angles" so many times and I insisted on it. Have Kilysa do the calculations to find the hypothetical 90 degrees angle and you can start digging.)

Alina to Sivtress: "Yes, it is the very definition of fun!"
Myranda rolls her eyes.
Myranda to Tegedar: "It's not exactly our 'inside-out' we still have a layer of skin that protects our inner organs from exposure"
Alina to Tarakith: "In more ways than you can imagine!" *winks at Thiror*
Myranda facepalms.

Thirty Azgorlanor-class warships bearing the 'two battling dragons' of House Valxaryen come near the Formics. Martax-Admiral Molitor Arvanen engages communications with the Formic Queen: "Salutations, I am Martax-Admiral Molitor of House Arvanen, appointed head of the Throne Fleet. I presume you're the species known as the Formics and that amongst you is your most honourable Queen Zagara, Talmyr of the Formics? Before I can welcome you and lead you to the Unburnt One, Talmyr Myrsa of House Valxaryen, I have to demand your password..."

(Sweet, I bet your like "finally", yes i see now what you meant by angles now, i was thinking of something like tremors moving underground which is why the harvesters dug the first Trench. Ok ill she shall return)

 ( its funny, I didnt mean for this to happen but,  Kilysa is actually gaining various titles since she is the one responsible for awakening the psionic gene in the Chrymerions which in turn was one of the causes of the chain reaction that changed the Galactic map & other items. Her name is just destined to have titles with it. )

The Krith pick up on Myranda's reactions to Alina's answers.

Sivtress still practices her smile.

Rynza starts talking to Myranda psionically: "Dont be alarmed its me Rynza, I didnt want to embarrass you, but we were concerned for a moment seeing your eyes almost spin for a moment & we wanted to check & see if your ok. You can just speak in your mind I will know what your wanting to say."

Tegedar: "Ah forgive me, I had the idea of nothing but jelly covering your body, but yes skin makes more sense."

Tarakith's wings fold out as she mimics Alina's wink: "what does this eye motion mean? & I was thinking if you had wings as I & my cousins that you being light & flexible may help you fly faster"

Valgorr slowly mimics Myranda's facepalm: "Such a strange movement"

XerKhon: "What is your culture like?"

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

Zagara: "Greetings Martax-Admiral Molitor, Yes we are Formics & I am Swarm Queen Zagara, & I believe the code your seeking is "Somandraqish"

(It wasn't terribly easy, so I expected a small delay to its solution.)
(if you play your cards right she may gain another title, or knoweledge...)

Myranda tries to speak inside her mind but various thoughts come across and form sentences of their own (No, I'm perfectly fine - And now Rokarr's niece is reading my mind - damn, my daughter hasn't called me for days - err I'm not that fond of smiling for no good reason and what I did was a facial expression of dissaproval  ..I'm less than social when it comes to my relationships with others, unlike Alina - I miss Lyr - I'm not good at this Rynza...)

Myranda shakes her head a bit and responds to Tegedar: "Erm, yes of course, my paladin propably meant that our skin has a rather soft feel in contrast to your exosceletons  ..we aren't made literaly out of jelly."

Alina to Tarakith: "It's a secret signal towards a friend, short of like a nod"
Thiror: "When you wink at someone it can mean a lot of things, in this case it was a hint to me regarding my knoweledge of Alina's flexibility  ...errr, which I observed during an incident we had while hunting the Remelaxian Fire Ants and nothing else that happened prior to that, Captain Myranda."
Myranda makes a rather dissaproving morphasm "I really don't care what you two do in your spare time lieutenant. However I demand your professionalism."
Thiror: "Yes of course, captain... and Honourable Tarakith, I guess it would indeed help in aviation to be light and flexible  ..that's why most avian species of Shyr share these two attributes. Can you fly?"

Myranda to Valgorr: "It's another sign of dissaproval. For example; It's what frustrated captains do when their crewmembers can't stay serious for a single moment..."

Alina to XerKhon: "Well, we have dances and parties and competitions and.."
Myranda: "Well, yes, all of these are correct, but our culture is quite vast so we better start with the main ideals of our society which are 'love, family and honour'  ..besides, Frontierers' culture is quite different from other Colonial Ghashyr cultures and definitely different from Shyrite, homeworlder culture."

Admiral Molitor: "Affirmative, I welcome your greatness, Unburnt One and Talmyr of the Formics, Zagara, to the system of Taurgha Talmyrengal - the Imperial Heart - and the planet that gave birth to our species, Shyr. Follow the main ship with the green light on its tail, it'll lead you to the landing point in the capital of 'Datha en Valxes' which is located in the continent of Urva, the slightly arid mass of land in the southern hemisphere shaped like a tooth, which you can see from up here."
-Admiral Molitor transmits landing data to the Formic ship.

After reaching the ancient city of Datha the Formics can witness from their spaceship the fire-fountains and the red banners of House Valxaryen adorning the Highest of towers and buildings, as well as myriads of Ghashyr commoners on the ground and balconies that have gathered to watch the event of the century. The Formic spaceship is led to land in a wide plaza, high above the ground and meant for spaceships. A few meters away from the landing point, on a large bridge with statues of old Emperors, stands a delegation of the highest Ghashyr officials headed by Steward Rysannox Galgatyen - before them their respective guards all clad in heavy Arsazezyn armour, bearing the banners of the dignitaries' Houses and Offices. Behind the delegation rises in all its majesty the most massive building-complex in all of Datha; the Mourning Halls - quite different in style from the sand-coloured buildings of Datha, its colours range from grey to black and many frescos depicting various scenes of Ghashyr history can be seen in its large windows.

(if you play your cards right she may gain another title, or knoweledge...)
(lol, & so it begins :-P )

Rynza: "alright thats good, ah I see I will let the others know, not to worry Myranda, if it makes you feel better Formics never speak in a audible sense in our society & most of the time we dont speak face to face. We will be sure to respect your minds privacy."

Rynza gives Myranda a brief smile.

Tegedar: "Im guessing that Ghashyr dont need to molt, & your skin just grows & stretches with you through your growth cycles."

Sivtress: "Tegedar I dont think molting is something to discuss with others"

Tarakith: "ah I see, secret signal, could be a nod or hint."

Some of the Krith snif the air briefly.

Sivtress: "based on the pheromones your giving off im guessing both of you are mates?"

Tarakith starts fluttering her wings & hovering in the air, Sivtress & Rynza join her for a few moments then all 3 stop & fold their wings back into their skeleton shell.

Valgorr: "hmmm interesting"

XerKhon to Alina: "Dances, im not familiar with this word."

XerKhon to Myranda: "It seems somewhat similar, although all in the Swarm are family & our hierarchy is less complex then Ghashyr "

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

Zagara: " Thank you Admiral, Ill follow in a Battle ship instead, these Hive carriers are a bit too large to land in a city"

One of the middle Hive Carriers opens one of its side ports as a battleship comes forth & follows the main ship into the strange planet as, Zagara converts the landing data transmitted & shares it with her daughters.

The Formics look upon Datha admiring the architecture & the fire-fountains. As the battleship lands 4 Energy Harvesters & various other types of formics crawl out of their chambers & out of the ship standing on either side looking at the creatures several meters away. Next one port on the ships left side opens Zagara & her daughters walk out accompanied by 3 Hive Guardians, 12 Soldier Drones, 3 Siege Drones, & 3 Havok Drones. They stop a moment looking around at the statues & design of the plaza & the Morning Halls behind the Ghashyr officials. Zagara & her group walk towards the Ghashyr officials.

Zagara projected an aura of calm & peace.

Zagara: "Greeting noble dignitaries Shyr, I am Swarm Queen Zagara, as you would say Talmyr of the Formics."

Myranda felt relieved "Thank you, your excelency"
-
Thiror to Tegedar: "That's a very accurate presumption; we are born with our skin and it grows along."
-
Alina to Tarakith: "Yep, only it is reserved for people you feel more relaxed with. I once winked to a general after she managed to get our battalion out of guard duty  ..and I got guard duty!"
Myranda: "Private! Don't make me order your restraintment..."
Alina: "Sorry captain, I just meant to use an understandable example, captain."
-
Thiror to Sivtress: "Well..." *looks at Myranda*
Alina: "It's more of an ...army friendship with benefits."
Alina tries to change the subject and responds to XerKhon "Well, a dance is when you move your body in rythm for your own amusement - we usually do that on celebrations..."
Myranda to Xherkon: "Yes, though this is not that indicative of our Frontierer ideals and traditions...  As I was about to say; Love stands for the love between two soulmates, be it friends, offsprings, or a married couple and our mission to care for them and protect them. Family stands for our duty to stand besides our own close kin and our Lord's kin -our clan- upholding thy name, in our case; Great House Martael. Last but not least is Honour, our most important of values, since only through following an honourable way of life one can find the path towards enlightenment."
-
The Ghashyr look amazed as the Krith demonstrate their abilities.
Thiror: " 'ery impressive!"
Myranda: "And you can fly long distances?
Alina: "Could us Ghashyr gain the ability to fly on our own, pherhaps?"

-
--

Upon Zagara's introduction all the followers and guards of the dignitaries kneel, while the dignitaries themselves bow their heads in respect, Rysannox a middle-aged male Ghashyr wearing the ceremonial Golden Armour of Stewards opens his arms wide and the fire-fountains' fire takes the shape of majestic dragons flying around the bridge and the surrounding buildings, while the masses beneath start chanting the Reign of Light as music begins sounding throughout the city. Rysannox makes exactly five steps to symbolise the five steps of divine hospitality.
"By the Light in the Darkness and the Eternal Fire that burns within our souls, the gates of the Mourning Halls shall cease their mourning and open up for you, Guests of Gods."
The gigantic gates of the imperial palace start opening slowly while their colour changes from black to a white crystalic, as sunlight through lenses falls and interacts with organisms on them.
"Welcome Talmyr Zagara of the Formics to the beating heart of the Talmyrox, may your reign be enlightened and eternal. You have before you Echopalad (Steward) Rysannox of House Galgatyen, Sanqor (Lord-Attorney) Selyna of House Malqamrax, Caepatax (Marshall) Govis of House Asunmal,  Arimsyrox (Economic Minister) Sarxaxa of House Ymbrel and the rest of the high council of Shyr ...If you wish to follow me I'll lead you directly to the Unburnt One."

Tarakith: “signals between trusted friends, makes sense if you have no psionic link with them”
-
Sivtress: “ Army friends with benefits, never heard of such a thing, how does….”

Rynza: “Sivtress, let’s not get into any private details.”

XerKhon: “Dances, we may have to explore this one day.”

Xherkon: “ Love, duty, & Honour”
-
Tarakith: “Yes but we will be able to fly much greater distances when we have fully matured.”

Valgorr: “With the right genetic modifications it seems very feasible.”

-_-_-_
Zagara & her daughters watch the fire dragons fly around the buildings very intrigued as this capability. 

Rokarr: “The gates almost seem to have organic properties.”

Zagara & her daughters give slight bows to the dignitaries.

Zagara: “It is a pleasure to meet you Rysannox, Selyna, Govis, Sarxaxa, & the rest of your council”

As Zagara & her unit follow the dignitaries into the heart of Talmyrox she looks at the magnificent alien architecture & details it holds.

Alina to Tarakith: "Well, yes, we can't talk in private through telepathy  ...so when others are around we Ghashyr use signals."
-
Myranda looks at her crew and turns to Rynza "Yes, that would be wiser"
Alina performs a dancing move "I'm sure you'd like it too"
Myranda: "We try to abide these three as much as possible, though sometimes they may conflict with each other..."
-
Thiror: " 'ery impressive  ...and ya can fight on air as well, I presume -quite an advantage!"
Myranda: "You surely are blessed!"
Alina: "Lovely, I'd give all of my belongings for even a day of free flying!"

As the Formics and the welcoming delegation enter the Mourning Halls the doors close behind them and all sounds and sunlight are lost, giving their way to an imposing silence and low lighting from rare blue Paxyen crystals that reflects in the greyish Arsaz(metal) floor - in the left and right infront of them lies a long hall with giant engraved columns and frescos in the walls with cold colours depicting the first 100 Taggaren Emperors of the past in their moments of greatness. In the end of the long hall there is a large dome with an azure fire fountain and in the middle of it rises the titan sculpture of "Azgor Tal", the personification of the one true Light. Rysannox bows and utters "Most great power of Light, enlighten us all" Selyna, Sarxaxa and most of the dignitaries do the same  ...Govis and a small group turn towards the left where the statue of a gigantic burning dragon is placed and kneel while chanting silently "Fireborn, Firetorn, Fire will forever burn" Selyna looks down on them with disdain as they do.

All dignitaries then enter the massive Throne room; The roof (a dome) above depicts engravings and sculptures of Ghashyr fighting the forces of darkness -portrayed by various demons-, the leading figure in the top of the dome instead of a weapon holds a torch with a very bright blueish light that enlightens the gigantic room. Above the ground hover the Arsazezyn models of all the planets that are, or once were, part of the empire. In the right and left 'waterfalls' of azure fire are sprouted out of Dragons' and demons' sculptures' mouths and fall in small bottomless pits.
In the end of the room there is a stair with 50 steps that lead to the Imperial throne where the Empress sits wearing her imperial armour and laurel, the whole Mourning Guard clad in their black armour standing besides her, while another 50 steps right above the Imperial throne stands the Firetongued Throne; a rather simple metal throne covered in gigantic flames that 'lick' the wall in the back, in which the emblem of House Valxaryen is engraved - two dragons bonding.

The Empress rises from her throne and all Ghashyr kneel and bow their heads, Rysannox adresses his liege: "Myr of Myres, Unburnt One and seed of the Dragon, may your reign be eternal. Your divine greatness, I bring before you your honoured guests; Zagara, Talmyr of the Formics and her kin"
Empress: "I am Myrsa XIX of House Valxaryen, Talmyr Talmyroxen Ghaen Shyryen, Lady of all Ghashyr and this hall. I welcome you to my humble home."



(terms; "Myr": King, "Arsazezyn": most expensive metal in the empire)

Tarakith: "It makes me think ive stories of the Elder seasons of our own history before Formics awakened to psionic beings"

-_

Rynza & Sivtress look at each other a moment as they speak secretly:

Rynza: "Sivtress thats not something to discuss with strangers"

Sivtress: "I know I was just curious, ive never heard of friends doing that, I thought only mates did"

Rynza: "For us yes because we form permanent links with our mates, but not all beings do & their ways are different"

-_

The Krith watch Alina taking note of her dance moves with curious looks on their faces.

Tegedar: "Interesting, you said this is used in celebrations & ceremonies, is it synchronized or follow specific patterns."

-_

XerKhon to Myranda: " Formic's believe that such things while in one sense have a permanent aspect to them, in another they tend to change depending on circumstance."

-_

Tarakith: "Our grandmother & aunts are good at it, but we have not practiced flying & fighting nearly enough yet."

Sivtress: "Blessed, what does this word mean?"

Rynza: "We've never thought of flying as being that special, since Ghashyr can travel through space developing mechanical wings should be quite simple."

-_
-_
-_

As they walked the Havoc & Siege drones sniffed at the Ghashyr close to them as if they were trying to figure out if these new creatures were food or not.
 
Zagara, Rokarr, & Kilysa study the engraved columns depicting past Taggaren Emperors, viewing the fire fountain the Titan sculpture the Formic Queens speak among-est themselves as to not disturb the dignitaries as they prayed & chanted.

Kilysa: "I suppose this is the most powerful Ghashyr that ever lived"

Rokarr: "I was thinking that, but that reference that Rysannox just used, power of light, Ator said something similar, I think this is a deity of some sort perhaps similar to ours."

Kilysa: "It would seem that not all Ghashyr follow the same deity, seems very strange."
 
-_

After entering the Throne room the Queens spoke openly for all to hear.

Kilysa: "Those engravings above must be important battle of your history, what sort of evil looking creatures are those?"

Rokarr: "This must be the planets in there empire"

-_

At the end of the room Kilysa was tempted to fly up the stairs but she decided not to knowing that mother & her sister would not approve. 

Zagara & her daughters bow slightly for a moment as the Ghashyr Empress rose from her throne.

Zagara: "Greetings Myrsa, thank you for having us as guests, I am Swarm Queen Zagara, & these are my daughters Rokarr & Kilysa. I believe you've already spoken to Kilysa, I hope her crash was not a disturbance."

Alina: "I don't know much about our history as my captain does, but you Formics remind me too of old tales about the God-Kings my mother used to scare me   ...she once told me that if I lied, the ghost of Torax Taggaren would know it and speak to her in her mind"
Myranda: "As if an emperor's ghost would care if you lied about stealing biscuits"
Alina: "Well, it scared me then captain  ...and ghosts could exist, I had.."
Myranda: "Oh please private, not this again about your paranormal experiences on Sizur Minor"
Alina: "Ok..." Alina seems quite grumpy.

-

Alina to Tegedar: "Sometimes the last, sometimes the former, sometimes both  ..it really depends on the dance! Would you like to dance?"

-

Myranda to XerKhon: "Well, certainly, some try to balance them out, some put the one ideal over the other  ...it's rather complicated"

-

Thiror: "If oy weh' ya oy'be train'n e'ery dai  ..it moss' be lamar rejuvanat'n!"
Myranda: "It means you're gifted. Me and my crew are amazed by your capability to fly on your own  ...Thiror, I know you're excited, but please speak in a more comprehensive accent, no one in here is from Lampad"
Thiror: "Oy'll.. err-I will do as commanded cap'n."
Alina: " We can fly through mechanical means, yes. But having natural wings?  ...we'd be like dragons!"

-~-
-~-
-~-

Govis seems rather annoyed by the Havoc & Siege drones sniffing them, he gets infront of the dignitaries thinking that being the most imposing of the Ghashyr he would cause the drones to stop acting in such a way.
-
Rysannox: "Dear visitors, above our heads is the 'Eternal battle of the forces of Light and Darkness' made by ancient sculptor Xerys Armaryn on the orders of Emperor Naridax IV Taggaren, the evil looking creatures and their minions are the personifications of Darkness; the one demon holding a half-eaten Ghashyr is Bulimia for example, while the figure on the top holding the Torch is Prophet Marlach - may his light never go out" he then turns to Rakorr "That is correct."
One of the lesser dignitaries that had chanted to the dragon statue looks at a particular part of the giant scene were a few Ghashyr slay a dragon and he mutters very silently "Saints forgive us..."
-
The Ghashyr all rise with a move of Myrsa's hand.
Myrsa: "It's good to finally meet you Talmyr Zagara and your other daughter, Rokarr ...and of course to see again Kilysa, in person this time. Your daughter's crash and the introduction of your species provides many opportunities in my opinion, but I would lie if I said it hasn't caused controversy amongst my kind   ...may I suggest a group walk in the gardens, so we could discuss about the future of our peoples' relationship?

Sivtress to Alina & Myranda: "Ghosts, what are ghosts?"

-_

Tegedar looks at his cousins for a moment: "Dance yes, ill try it, I believe I remember the sequence you demonstrated."

-_

XerKhon to Myranda: "Yes indeed"

-_

The Krith look at Thiror a moment trying to decipher what he was saying.

Sivtress to Myranda: "Ah I see, thank you for your compliment."

Rynza to Thiror: "Ah yes we nearly forgot to ask you all about the worlds your from, whats planet Lampad like?"

Tarakith to Alina: "It is feasible that Ghashyr could bind their dna with these dragons you speak of & take on some if not all their abilities."

-_
-_
-_

Govis moving away triggered the Siege & Havoc drones primal hunting instinct, a deep rumble from the Siege drones & a deep hiss like sound from the Havoc drones could be heard as they were about to charge at Govis thinking he was potential prey trying to get away but Zagara instantly had them go back in formation & no longer bothering the dignitaries.

Kilysa: "Ah I see, Formic's are so use to sharing memories & thoughts we havent really considered creating such magnificent art forms."
 
-_

Kilysa: "Hello Myrsa."

Rokarr: "Greetings"

Zagara: "Ah I see, well im sure we can solve such, Yes a walk is most welcome."

Alina: "Some say they're the souls of the deceased that watch and judge the living!"
Myranda: "...ghosts are just stories to scare children. Souls unite with the great Light of the Cosmos -Azgor Tal- upon carnal death, or are lost with the cold wind of darkness if they were not enlightened."
-
Alina to Myranda: "May I?"
Myranda: *sigh* "Yes, you may..."
Alina happily gets a small device out of her military bag and orders it to play music *music starts playing*
Myranda: "I'd prefer something more  ...appropriate, private."
Alina: "Awww, well whatever..." *Alina changes music* "This one's called Vuscar, it's a traditional Urvan music genre and dance. Whatch my steps; when I go left - you go left, when I go right - you go right, when I go front - you go back, when I go back - you go front ...well you get the point. Now, when we change course you grab my hand and waist and we make a turn!" Alina gets closer to Tegedar and restarts the music. "Let's go Tegedar, Paeryn!"
-
Myranda makes a rather subtle smile.
Thiror: "Nay, Lampad's ah system; I'm frae planet Arshynor in the Lampad system, which 's ah warm, fertile, tropical farm-world - we grow the most food o' tha Empire ...after Shyr 'course! I got tae the Frontiers as ah me'cenary, but I was made ah Martael paladin 'n now Doth's me new home."
Alina: "If only there was a way..."

-~-
-~-

Govis had his hand a few inches above the hilt of his firewhip, while trying to appear calm to ease the tension with the drones. Upon Zagara's intervention he exhaled, feeling relieved that he wouldn't have to use force.
-
Rysannox to Kilysa: "Each one is unique in the Light, noble Myr - I'm sure your species excells at many things we don't."
-
Myrsa: " 'Hello Myrsa'; I haven't been adressed in such a vulgar way for nine years! That's quite refreshing..."
Myrsa turns to Rokarr: "Welcome Queen Rokarr. I sensed your presense in Remelax yet unfortunately I had not the opportunity to converse with you."
Upon hearing Zagara, Myrsa waves her hand and the palatial guard with the majority of the dignitaries return to their positions - only six Mourning Guards come close and stand behind her along with Rysannox, Govis, Selyna and Sarxaxa "Good, then let us proceed. Walk alongside me if you may, fellow Talmyr Zagara."
Myrsa starts walking towards a large open gate that leads to a long, covered stonebridge - in the end of it can be seen the Imperial Gardens; a vast open area surrounded by the high dark walls of the Mourning Halls palace, all covered in lush flora from all over the empire and with colourful bird species flying around.
"As I said before Talmyr Zagara, I consider your revealment to be full of opportunities for both of our peoples' ....I'd wish to know your opinion and wishes regarding coming across my species..."

(terms: "firewhip", the melee weapon of choice of most Ghashyr)

Sivtress: “ah I think I know what you speak of, they are bursts of energy sometimes from planets or from an individual source or being.”

-_

Thr Krith look at each other & then the Ghashyr as the music plays.

Tarakith: “thats very interesting.”

Valgorr: “ I think I like this, this is music.”

When the music changes the Krith look at the device a moment.

Rynza: “there seems to be various types of this music, I wonder how many?”

XerKhon: “It seems to have an effect on the mind, to what extent does it effect.”

Tegedar: “Vuscarr”

Tegedar became nervous when he realized he would be making physical contact with Alina.

Tegedar: “oh were going to be close & touching, ah hmmm eh okay…”

Tegedar’s skeletal structure was very smooth to the touch yet hard. His frame is dense & powerful, even so he took great care to be gentle while dancing with Alina. He’s movements were alittle stiff due to nervousness but he was able to follow her lead, though he was cheating a bit in using his psionic’s to track her body movements, at the 2nd turn he accidentally picked her up off the ground slightly with his telekinetic’s still holding her hand & waist not even realizing it.

XerKhon & Valgorr let out small snickers, Sivtress: “don’t worry it will be your turn soon enough.”

-_

Rynza to Thiror: “Arshynor, similar to Rith’Gard, though it is also a forge world of sorts, me’cenary, wait mercenary, I thought mercenaries were like pirates, but you don’t seem like that.”

Rynza looked into Thiror’s eyes, an uneasy tension seemed to be growing in the area.

Tarakith to Alina: “Don’t lose hope, theres far more possibilities then you may know.”

-_
-_
-_

Kilysa: “Forgive me Talmyr Myrsa, I did not realize just was vulgar & disrespectful.”

Rokarr:” Yes I sensed your presence as well, I understand though, a Empress is the center of her empire thus she is quite busy, im sure we will have some time to converse.”

As Zagara starting walking next to Myrsa the Soldier drones follow behind Zagara as Kilysa & Rokarr lead the rest of the unit several meters behind.
The formics enjoyed the Gardens, it almost reminded them of some of the Gardens Niadra was growing on Rith’Gard.

Zagara: “I agree Talmyr Myrsa, there are many opportunities between Formics & Ghashyr, when I look at Ghashyr I see a young species filled with potential , it would seem you are reptilian in nature making Ghashyr the first sentient beings of that sort we have come across, . My hope is that our species can become allies, friends even. The Formic species is going through some rapid changes, thus I wish to learn as much as possible from our allies so we will be prepared for what is to come. What are your own opinion & wishes in meeting Formic’s?”

Myranda: "Well, some Ghashyr would put it like that, but while it is true this this is some short of natural phenomenon, as is Light  ...myself and the majority of the Ghashyr consider that our world was not made in vain, or by chance  ...there has to be a meaning to all of this; and the birth of Light, the reason we all live, must be something more than just a random event. We all carry the Light within our souls and it is our duty to keep it bright."
-
Alina to Rynza: "Lots, thousands  ...Shyr is a big planet, and so is our empire."
Myranda looks at Alina and turns to XerKhon: "Well, music affects most individuals positively, bonding them and guiding their feelings, however, not all Ghashyr like the same music - I'm not that fond of modern music".
Alina: "I like them all!"

Alina was confused a little by Tegedar's very solid exterior, nevertheless she thought of it as amazing to actually having a first contact with an alien species.
She let out a small cheer as she was lifted by Tegedar, and despite being surprised she kept her rythm "Heh, You're a quite fun dance partner Tegedar!"
-
Thiror responded quite straightforwardly, yet calmly, to Rynza: "I know that look very well, yo' highness - it will follow me a' mah life fo' sta'ting off as a poor boy that fought nay fo' honou', but fo' gold to sustain 'is family  ...Oy fought fo' House Ma'tael fo' gold once, yes, yet Oy ne'er was ah criminal; Oy fought such bloody basta'ds a' mah loife..." Myranda looks nervously at her lieutenant while he signals him to tone it down with a subtle move from her hand - Thiror smiles and bows his head a little "As fo' Arshynor, ya should visit it   ...I'm sure ya would love its massive flora 'n humbleness, yo' grace."

Alina responds to Tarakith while dancing: "I hope so!"

Myrsa to Kilysa: "There is nothing to forgive, dear Queen - you're not a Ghashyr, therefore our protocols are not known and don't apply to you ...besides, I admire straightforwardness more than I do titles." she then turns to Rokarr "Of course, I'm quite keen to be properly acquainted with all of you."

Myrsa to Zagara: "It is most great that you think likewise, our two species could profit from an alliance, however we must be delicate regarding our moves  ...as for what we wish from your species? I'll have to be honest and say; a stabilising factor, a trade partner and information. Now, fellow Talmyr, the response to 'what we think' varies, as do opinions of individuals throughout the Empire, I personally consider your species quite civilised, even though peculiar. Also, I'm not sure if you're familiar with species such as mine, but we're not reptiles; we're Erveryn, we give birth and breastfeed our young."
Myrsa felt rather insulted by Zagara describing Ghashyr as 'young', but she keeps a calm and friendly tone in her voice "What would you wish to learn in particular about our species?"

Myrsa leads the group towards a small grove with an ancient statue of a small dragon in the middle and two ghashyr warriors fighting with each other in its feet. Two small water channels flow next to the path.

Sivtress: “oh that’s what you were talking about, I was thinking of the physical manifestation of psionic & other energies. But yes Formic’s do recognize the existence of a supreme being.”

Rynza: “That’s fascinating.”

XerKhon: "very interesting.”

Alina’s skin reminded Tegedar of Chrymerions but softer & less dense.

Realizing he had lifted her off the ground Tegedar gentle but her back on the ground.

Tegedar: “forgive me I didn’t realize….., oh really, being a fun dancer it good.”

Tarakith: “ I believe Tegedar is the first Formic dancer”

Valgorr: “Tegedar Warlord of the Dance, hahaha.”

Rynza relaxed again listening to Thiror

Rynza: “ Fear not Thiror, no matter what your origins have been, you have obviously upheld your dignity & honour improving yourself & your family, I will be sure to visit Arshynor 1 day.”

If Kilysa could smile & blush she would have.

Zagara: “May I ask why the delicacy? , Im certain we can set trades & information, what are the sort of items you seek. I imagine Formics are quite strange & peculiar to see for the first time. Ah forgive my mistake, your appearance reminds me of a flying reptilian species we came across on another planet long ago, Erveryn, very interesting ive never heard of that, so far every species we’ve meet gives birth, im starting to think that laying eggs maybe rare among sentient races. I wish to learn about Ghashyr history, technology, genetics, & culture. Also I would like to collect samples of any creatures similar to Formic’s that you may have, I believe you call them insects.”

As the group walks up to the small grove with the ancient dragon statue & two ghashyr warriors. Kilysa & Rokarr converse with the dignitaries.
Kilysa: “Those flying creatures you worship, are you decedents of them? I would very much like to analyse one.”

Myranda smiles, feeling slightly embarassed for her misaimed preaching: "Oh my mistake, nevertheless it is good that you 'have seen the Light' as well"
-
Alina: "Oh, I didn't mind, it was fun and felt nice! And being fun is what is best in life."
Myranda: "Well, that is a little stretched   ...knoweledge too can lead to near-ecstatic feelings."
-
Alina and Thiror smile upon hearing the teasings of Valgorr.
Alina: "The rest of you should try it as well"
Thiror: "Oy'll have to agree, dance 's tha best way to bond wi' Ghashyr"
-
Thiror: " 't's noice o' ya tae think as such, ya highness! Many Ghashyr don't   ...if ya e'er visit Arshynor, be sure tae seek tha hospitality o' House Askranlach; say Thiror sent ya!"

Myrsa: "As I mentioned earlier, the opinions of Ghashyr differ, so it'd be wise to not provoke the most negative of said opinions. Regarding our dealings in trade, we'd be more interested in building up trade routes for general goods and set tariffs on them ...as for information? A list of the other species you have encountered and their locations, as well as your species' location, would be a good start; You know were we stand, it is only fair that we should know as well. Understandable, our cultural relations to the extinct reptilians species of the Dragons might confuse some - There are others similar to the Ghashyr you say? Quite intriguing."
Myrsa starts making moves with her hands while responding to Zagara's demands to put some emphasis "Well, our history is a long one and quite complex - I could summarise it if you so wish, however I'm not a professional historian. Now about technology; We'd willingly share with you part of our knoweledge, as long as you share part of yours with us. Our culture differs from planet to planet, continent and even nationality, we're a species of individuals you see. For more on these subjects, I would estimate that a visit in the palatial library would be far more fruitful. ...As for biology, we're anthrax based living organism, like you, that live in oxygen-based atmospheres, give birth and are composed of individuals and two sexes."
The empress is slightly confused by Zagara's last request "Insects? Certainly, I will be glad to help you collect information on your relative species that inhabit the Empire".

Govis to Kilysa: "No your grace, we are not related biologicaly to them   ...the Dragons were the Saints of the Eternal Fire, they helped our people understand what was already taught by the first fire-shamans of our kin, but their fire burnt out during the 'Ascend of the Light'."  Govis, Myrsa and two guards bow their heads and mutter "Saints forgive us".
