In contrast to Hraine's more pronounced reaction, Ashley doesn't seem too fazed as she suddenly becomes aware of the newcomer's name. Perhaps she didn't register how she heard it, and just assumed it had been spoken... Regardless, she nods. "I see." she replies, then turns back to Hraine, also somehow failing to notice his reaction to Atropos.
"A bit spare? I haven't found any here yet... How long have you been wandering, and how many did you see?" she inquires, hoping that there's at least some indication for more places to go around here.
She doesn't seems to care about his reaction.
Atropos points at places of interest silently, shooting tiny beam to serve as a kind of pointer to the locations.
Hraine seems a bit confused by Atropos, especially since she seems preoccupied in her own world, giving a slow blink and looking unsure if he should even talk to this strange, floating woman, before glancing at Ashley.
"I've been wandering for about an hour, and I think I've found just three towns, so far, and they're quite distant from one another."
Ashley nods to Hraine, acknowledging his reply. She then glances at what Atropos is doing, noticing the pointer-like nature of the beams. She can't help but remember a laser sight on a certain fellow marksman's weapon... After a moment of consideration, she turns her attention back to Hraine.
"Those beams she's making... Do any of them point in the direction of one of those towns?"
She doesn't answer, and tilt her head to the side.
"I can't say for sure," Hraine admits, looking bewildered, "she doesn't seem like the social type."
"Besides, one of the towns is well within walking distance. We could check for scanners there."
Ashley seems a bit annoyed that she can't verify her guess, but shrugs and moves to lock her RPG into place on her back. It might occur to those present that she'd been aiming that thing around rather haphazardly for a while, and given the dynamite she dropped earlier exploded in her face, that probably wasn't safe...
"Hmm... Pity I cannot confirm that. Oh well. Lead the way, then?"
She glance at the RPG and silently point at it.
Nyriss is presently seated at the bar of the Silver-Blood Inn, downing a mug of mead.
Nyriss might take note of a strange purple-blue glow outside the Inn, moving about slowly.
Markarth, Silver-Blood Inn
After placing the now-empty cup upon the bar's countertop, Nyriss rises from her barstool when she notices the strange glow just outside the inn.
"Hello, what have we here?"
Brushing her bangs aside to reveal her cybernetic eye, the cyborg half-dragon proceeds to scan the glow as she approaches it.
The scan reveals that the glow to be originating from an artificial(?) lifeform just outside the Inn, who is currently wandering about the area aimlessly, as if they were simply exploring. Perhaps it would be best to investigate?
Upon receiving the results of her scan, Nyriss decides to walk out of the Silver-Blood Inn before approaching the newcomer.
"Neat place, ain't it? Never thought I'd find a steampunk-ish city in what looks like something outta the Viking Ages myself."

Well, Nyriss would find that the newcomer doesn't really look human at all. For one, his skin colour is distinctly a purple tinge.
Another? His hair, which seems to have been set on fire, although given how he seems unbothered by it, is probably a normal aspect that he has.
And, finally, his hands, which seem fairly mechanical in nature, with visible joints and mechanisms.
"...Hello," he eventually greets with a blink, appearing surprised, "I wasn't expecting anyone here to be present."
"Alright... I'm guessing this dude's either a cyborg like me or a full-on android... who somehow has a head of Hades-style hair."
Nyriss' cybernetic eye moves about in its socket as she examines the newcomer.
"Well, don't you worry, I ain't here to cause a ruckus or anything. Got a name?"
"I'm Hraine. I'm just taking a look around, really."
The humanoid still seems surprised... and he soon blinks, taking note of Nyriss' cybernetics, and his eyes widening a little.
"...Are you also an automaton, or?"
"Plenty of me's still flesh and blood, so the word you're looking for here is 'cyborg'. Just call me Nyriss."
Nyriss raises an eyebrow at Hraine.
"Is... everything alright with ya, dude? Because you still look like I just magically grew two more heads or something."
Hraine seems to deflate when Nyriss mentions that she's simply a cyborg, looking a bit disappointed at that fact, although he does nod a bit.
"...Well, I was a bit excited to meet who could be a potential fellow automaton like I am."
He shrugs, running a hand through his crackling hair.
"Someone who could help me trace my origins, if possible."
"Hey, if it's fellow automatons you're looking for, I do know about a few. One of them's a guy named... What'd they say he was called again?" Nyriss replies, thinking back to when she first heard the name before snapping her fingers. "Oh yeah, Platinum. He's a robot who was built by this really smart scientist, so maybe he could help find out where you're from."

There's a loud whine of feedback that echoes from Raven Rock to the entire island of Solstheim.
Dr. Eggman's voice then blares out, as if over a loudspeaker. "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Beware, denizens of the Arena! As I speak, my latest and greatest creation is on fast approach toward Skyrim! I will get revenge for the humiliation Albert and I suffered at the hands of Galeem and Dharkon, when nobody offered their aid - and for your betrayal, Snively Robotnik!"
Death Egg Robot - Sonic Generations OST
Involvement in this event is decided on an invitation/request basis.
Hraine shrugs a little, looking somewhat uncertain, and peering at Nyriss for a moment.
"I suppose I can go look for him at some point and see what he can do... if he can even figure out who created me. Having no memories and no distinct marks or sigils makes recognition hard."
Lucina, Morgan, Peri, Sakura and Donnel lurk near the Velothi Mountains. Both Peri and Donnel have shovels, whereas the rest carry some signs.
Haha, you were right to pick me up for this, I know how to dig stuff better than anyone !
Haa, ye farm too ?
Huh ? No, I bury co... oh, oh, oh right ! Yes, I love farming !
Lucina sighs for a moment, while Sakura cringes.
How close are we, Morgan ?
We're clo... errr, we're a minute away !
Between the island of Solstheim and the mainland of Skyrim, something begins to move. The water begins to stir and evaporate into steam as a massive shape moves beneath the wave. The shape rises out of the water, revealing Shin Godzilla.
The Kaiju is covered in technology, massive vents expelling clouds of steam as it cools the beast. It begins to move towards mainland Skyrim, each step followed by a shake of the earth.
Eggman descends from on high in his signature Egg Mobile. He thrusts out a hand toward mainland. "GO! GO FORTH, AND WREAK HAVOC!"
Silver Sonic, Robo-Sonic, and Mecha Sonic all fly in, hovering around the cybernetically modified Shin Godzilla like a personal escort.
"He's supposed to be really advanced, so at least give him a chance. I think I overheard someone mention that his maker's lab was somewhere around that area, by the way, in case you need a place to start."
Nyriss points to the region of Whiterun Hold.
