Every town has outskirts, and the flowery fields of Eribank's make this an excellent spot for picnics.

Tod, looking quite uncomfortable, stumbles into the locale. He bends down to scratch at various bug bites on his person, then carries on with a chagrined expression.

"Hey there. Short guy. You look thirsty, come over here," beckons a very tall woman, leaning on an enormous battleaxe. On the picnic blanket beside her lies a humble meal, with two other guests.

One of them is a tall young woman, the other a very small framed young girl. "Hey Lya, is that guy okay?" "Huh? Oh, yeah, should be fine. He looks like he could use some food. Or maybe a shower, but I'm not one to judge."

"Okay?! No, I'm bloody well not okay, not in this weather with every species of insect deciding to feast on my flesh like... like..." He cuts off, blushing, and bows instead. Mid-bow, his facial expression freezes and he tries to straighten back up as if nothing had happened.

Act casual, act casual... "Yeah, so, uh, sure, whatever y'all say, sounds cool beans to me, uh-huh, totes. Food's good, yo, and that, uh... I am, like, so thirsty and... not to offend, but that beverage is tempting."

The tall woman stares at him. He attempts a smile in return, which ends up looking like a grimace of pain.

"Uh..." Rachel appears at a loss. Lyanna pulls a canister of something out of her labcoat. "Maybe use some bugspray? Or sit down before you fall down. You're little, but you could crush Rache if you fell on her."

Rachel rolls her eyes.

"Don't be ridiculous, Lyanna, he's smaller than she is. Look at him swaying in the breeze. Or is that heat exhaustion?" The woman walks over to Tod and pushes him toward the picnic blanket. "Drink."

Tod's knees buckle, and he takes a few desperate gulps of the ice water. Before long, the cup is empty. He refills it and has another sip, more politely this time. "My apologies. Your hospitality is much appreciated; my indecorum is remiss and oh look there I go again, incapable of casual speech." He pinches the bridge of his nose. "What a sight I must be. Laugh it up, go ahead, do as you wish. I know I'm making a fool of myself."

Lyanna reaches out and lays a palm on Tod's forehead. "Heat exhaustion seems most likely, but there are a few diseases whose only symptom is the fever this guy seems to have. But, looking at his skin I'd just say he's been out in the sun too long and his brain's showing the aftereffects."

"Are you hungry?"

"Hungry? I don't... I can't tell, to be honest."

"My name's Nabooru. Here, have some fruit." She hands a bowl of fruit pieces to Tod.

"Lyanna Albright." "I'm Rachel Albright, nice to met you!"

Suddenly, an odd, leaf feathered owl lights on Lyanna's shoulder. She strokes him on the head lightly, and feeds him something from her pocket.

Tod watches, but decides not to comment.

Nabooru takes a large bite from a leg of meat and swallows. Pointing to the poster nearby, she asks Tod, "You here for the bounty too, kid?"

"Pardon?" Wait no, that doesn't sound casual enough. "Say what?"

Nabooru squints at Tod, but ignores his odd speech quirk. "Shades been sighted around an old haunted area of the fields. They're offering payment for some kind folks to clear the place out. Consider it a... public works project."

Lyanna nods. "I was hoping to get a good look at one. I'd like to see if I could come up with a use for their remains."

"Hmm... Shades in large quantity... You don't suppose it could be another Shard?" Tod feels a shiver of fear and excitement. Perhaps if he finds another Shard, he can redeem himself from his failure with the last one?

"Possible. And all the more reason to hunt the monsters down. You in?"

"Without a doubt. ...But would it be terribly rude to ask that I finish a meal first?"

"Go ahead, we can wait!" "Yeah... Just finish up. We're not specifically in that much a hurry, are we Nabooru?"

"Not at all, kid. The Shades aren't going anywhere. It's more important you don't faint mid-battle. You a mage?"

"...Healer. Druidic origins. Magical voice. I've a few speeches that inspire some sort of divine inspiration in those who hear it. I also have a wind tome I've been practicing with. I see your weapon, an axe. You have a sword. What about you?" he asks, looking at Lyanna. "Your familiar?"

"Nah, Archimedes doesn't fight, he's just a pet. I generally fight with this." She pulls her knife from the sheath on her hip and flicks the switch. Visible electricity runs through the blade.

"I've got fire magic too," Nabooru reassures. "We're plenty equipped."

"...Yes, surely this will be enough." Tod takes another bite of food.
