Zalex Jumped as the, the thing started to speak in one of the common tongues, or barely speaking it. More or less hiding right behind Nefertiti now. This was all too much and in the distance he could see more coming down the path towards the guild. Two of them members he recognized from the guild. The other..humanoid seemed to speak in tongues. Reaching out to his mind Zalex could just see glimpses of a hellish landscape being compared the beauty of Niniva and the rather wonderful landscaping around the guild hall.It was a slight annoyance to UV that this civilization spoke English, as the robot required slightly more time to process this language's grammar into eloquent sentences than it did for Russian. Disregarding the astronomically small chances that a common language existed between itself and a completely foreign universe, UV began to translate its previously recited monologue into English before a stern, slightly electronic voice thundered from behind it. [br][/br]
"Yдерживать!" the walking suit of armor shouted, hastily approaching through the foliage, wielding a spear which was pointed directly at the half beast, half woman. "Опусти оружие, сейчас!"[br][/br]
<:: They don't speak Russian, Pyotr. ::>[br][/br]
"What?" The man barked into his radio.[br][/br]
<:: They can't understand you. They speak English. ::> UV was entirely composed in the situation, unlike the heavily breathing Pyotr, who clutched his gun with white knuckles. <:: Why don't you drop your weapon, instead? We are the intruders, and shooting isn't a very good first impression. ::> [br][/br]
With that last inaudible remark over its radio, UV turned a bit to glare at Pyotr. Abakumov returned the hostile gaze for a second or so, ensuring the beast with the spear never left his peripheral vision. Robbed of his speech, the Earthling refused to lower his weapon, plagued with wariness of this new land.[br][/br]
Hissing silently in a mechanical manner, UV's circuits boiled with impatience, and did its best to maintain a neutral disposition. It spoke now in English to the opposition, pausing unnaturally as it warmed up to the language for the first time.
<:: Apologies for my... Friend he is new to this land as am I I am UVUB-1 we... Are... From a distant. World. ::> UV blinked at the disjointed sentences it spoke. Surely to an unexpecting listener the spectacle would be frightening to hear, as its failure to synthesize normal human speech created an abomination that didn't deserve to be considered a sentence. Ashamed of itself, it floated in silence, entirely unsure of what to do next for the second time in its existence.
"We've got an interesting bunch of people with us. Though I've only really talked with Henry, the guy from earlier, and Ms. Rose. I think you two will do fine with us." He reassured them. Well, Henry was a bit more irritable that day but Roland really didn't blame him. Roland didn't exactly have the immaculate patience he usually did - after flying for a few hours straight, he wasn't exactly in his 100% currently. "Just sign your name on the paper. Ms. Rose will be quite pleased to have more members." He shoved his hands inside his pockets. "You could join me for some food once you guys claim your rooms."
When it came to signing the paper, Parfa shuffled over to Helios with a feathered quill dyed as colorful as her garb, whispering, "Er, I know this part, Helios," she pointed at where she was to sign, "but what do the rest of these paragraphs say?" she frowned at the paper.
After the signing, Parfa was surprised to learn that they were going to have rooms. "I'd like to eat with you, Roland. Where can we find the rooms? And, lodging and food is free, right?" she clarified.
He perked up at the idea of free food and a room to stay in, his grin turning into a pleased smile as he started to imagine all of the books he will stuff in his room. Along with treasures and items from the different adventures he’ll go through.
“I will join you as well, sir Roland.” Helios politely nodded his head. “What sort of quest did you do, sir? A-ah, if you don’t mind me asking?”
Calla approached her guild hall, many at her doorstep and could sense a few inside already. As tired as she was she walked up to the steps of the hall, Giving a smile to Roland and those he spoke with as well as Nefertiti, glad to see she arrived safely. Though it seemed she and Zalex are with some strange new beings. She strode pass them and opened the doors, "Naria" She said to the cat and picked up the delicate skeleton. "You were supposed to help, not hiss." She chuckled a bit and turned to Zalex and Roland. "Naria will get you your payment." She set the cat down and the tap of it's skeletal claws echoing as Naria trotted to her office. Using her magic she put away the delivery with a snap, though visibly she appeared tired herself, making the spell seem taxing. "You should head back Mr. Wingard It's getting rather late."<:: Is that so? ::> UV floated forward, seeming to have fully grasped the English language in the short time since its last sentence. It spoke down to Zalex, not a hint of gratitude in its voice. <:: Shelter here would be invaluable. We would be willing to provide services in exchange for the goods we need. ::>
Pyotr, after his attention was brought back to Zalex, thanked him for the gift and information.
