"I guess I'm in but- what on this green Earth is happening to her?" Cyril turned toward Clay.
"Did you not hear her? She literally just said it!" Azoth said angrily.
"I think that was a rhetorical question, Azoth. Oh, speaking of rhetorics, we're not gonna have to do the thing, are we?" Ymir asked.
"Not until we need to for threatening people, or something."
"Good. It feels weird to be tall, still."
"If everyone else is in, then I'm in as well. A pleasure to be working with you."
Suddenly, the woods woods would ring with the sound of soothing lute music, and a melodious voice could be heard throughout the trees:
"O magnum mysterium, et admirabile sacramentum, ut animalia viderent Dominum natum, iacentem in praesepio! Beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt portare Dominum Iesum Christum. Alleluia!"
"Is that the demon you were talking about?"
"Uh... dunno. I can't really tell if that's another demon or... anything, really," Azoth said.
"Maybe someone else is showing up to our assembly?" Ymir added, unsure.
As per usual, Allora would ready an arrow, turning in a circle to attempt to find the source of the music. "I swear, all these surprises just keep coming..."
(Three high school girls, one with ginger hair, standing at 157 centimeters, one with brownish-gray hair, standing at 159 centimeters, and one with dark blue hair, also standing at 159 centimeters)
"Huh...? Um... who are you guys?"

Selago looks around at everything and everyone. One person, two people, three, four, five... "I'll... I'm going back to the town. Anyone else want to come?"

"A band of adventurers looking to destroy something these guys claim to be a great evil, why do you ask?"
"Break it down, Luna!"
Suddenly, the sound of beatboxing rings throughout the forest, as an ethereal voice begins to.... Rap.
"Oh what a joyful mystery, How wonderfully sacramentous, To learn some ancient history As we crescend on the pentamentous"
"Pentamentous?" the beatboxing stops briefly as the first voice questions.
"You know, like pentameter. Freestyling is hard, okay?"
Just then, two figures enter the clearing, finding themselves at the pointy end of Allora's arrow.
"Whoa, whoa, don't shoot!" The first figure; a tall half-elf with pink hair, and eyepatch, and a long red cloak; raises her hands. "We come in peace!"
The second figure, a small, floating horse-like creature glowing with blue and purple and black, hides behind the first. Those knowledgeable in magical creatures would recognize it as some sort of faerie.

Azoth paused, by this point baffled by how many people were arriving to the clearing. "How many papers did you put up, Ymir?"
"Not that many... I'm just as confused as you are," Ymir replied.
Allora would retract her bow. "Sorry... I've been on edge for a while."
She looks towards the rest of the group. "This is quite the party we've amassed... Could be useful when... Ah, nevermind. It's not important."

"I guess that's useful, for now
But if you wish to remain useful, you shouldn't stay in peace for too long"
The half-elf crosses her arms and raises an eyebrow, looking around at the assorted gathered people.
"What are you all doing out here, anyways? Don't you know there's monsters in the woods?"
Raising his shield and axe
"They will not remain for very long!"
"We- uh... my friend and I got lost?" Ymir laid his arm around Azoth's shoulders.
"What are you doing?
"Just play along..."
The helf narrows her eye in suspicion. "Uh huh. And the rest of you?"
She smiles at Thorson's display of recklessness. "I like you. Come to think of it, I could use a barbarian in my party..."
Selago struggled to look at the half-elf. "I... I was on my way to t' castle town. I 'erd a commotion down 'ere, so I went to go 'ave a look." He spoke rather quietly compared to before.
"I'm adventuring in these woods and came across this group of people." Allora would reply.
She'd notice the half-elf's appreciation for Thorstone's... odd charisma. "You may not need a ranger, whoever you are, but I could be useful in other ways."
"Seriously though, why don't we just tell them? We could use more party members!" Azoth whispered to Ymir.
"They've got a faerie on their side and I have no idea how demons do with faeries! Or, if we're making a stupid spelling joke, daemons?"
"Actually, we're not here because we're lost," Azoth started out loud. "We're here because-"
"What? It's not like we're gonna die here. If we get into danger, we can just do the thing."
Cyril, having been quiet through most of this, spoke up. "What thing, exactly?
"None of your business, coat guy," Azoth retorted.

"That is actually our business, Azoth." Allora would reply. "If you want us to help you, then we need to know your capabilities."

The half-elf seems to be trying ti piece together what's going on from all the disjointed conversation.
"Well... It seems you're all capable of handling yourselves. Except that guy," she nods to Salego. "You must be some sort of adventuring party, right?"
"I've been looking around for a party myself. But I can't join you if I don't know what your quest is," she admits.
Azoth's expression fell into a frown "But-"
"If you don't tell them, I will," Ymir started.
"No, no, you'll end up messing it up! You barely even know how it works!"
"Well, neither do you, Six-Weeks!"
"Ugh! I've had it with us arguing, just let me explain!" Azoth turned to the group. We can sort of... combine into one vessel, I guess. Share a fused body, if that makes more sense. We become one being.... and we get taller, but that doesn't really matter."
Allora would look to the two children. "Interesting... Regarding the question, these two were telling us that because of some negotiations, there's been multiple deaths in the neighboring kingdom, caused by the ruler there. If I understand correctly, we're headed there to attempt to overthrow the kingdom."
