To the Garden of Wisdom
After having a discussion about the state of affairs and concern over Rele’s insistence that the best course to take the nation was the course of action, Rock had arranged the Princess’ escort to the large foot prints just south of the rocky valley encompassing (and protecting) the vast Kingdom of Lacroa. The journey there was slower because, well, not everyone has an enormous flagship to ride on, but they still approach the grounds within a day of travel through passageways only they know. He had instructed Cavalier to keep to the rear to make sure no foe or wild beast crept up on them unannounced.
“Do you know why these tunnels were constructed out this way?” Rock inquired without necessarily addressing either human in the party. Just from his tone, it was clear he already knew the answer, but he glanced back at them.
((pardon me as I make assumptions errywhere- totally up to you how Rele wants to travel so I’m using the word escort lightly here X’D;; ))
Cavalier glanced over his shoulder, then towards the princess, before returning to the front, where Rock was. “Not really.” Akir snorted, not sure of the safety of the area, even though he walked amongst the princess and Rock, with his rider on his back.
((The humans have horses, I’m assuming Rock can fly. Unless he has a horse similar to Entango?))
Rele pushed her hood back, looking up at the stone and trees surrounding her. Slowing her horse as the party neared the tunnels, she looked to the knight and shook her head. ”I was under the impression that they were like this in case of a needed evacuation or something similar.”
(( yeah, he’s good with animals but I don’t personally see Lacroa being much of a kingdom of mechs… he’s fine enough flying. Also I totally give up managing quotes, tumblr really wont let me reply to you properly for some reason :T;;))
“Yes, that would be a logical surmisal, mi'lady. However, the Kingdom itself has actually picked up and moved in rare, dangerous times in its long history. The giant which stomped through here not only threatened our ancestors, he destroyed the town and the awful sight of him drove the late King Revil mad.” Rock had been here a few times to escort, so finding the clearing with ancient structures came to no surprise to him.
((also last note: basing all of this on the original Knight SD Gundam series :> ))
