Sprout wings, I will!

One fine day, I found a baloon-airship that had been crashed into the shroud around Gridania.

It was quickly confiscated by the authorities.

But it was then, when I made a very unlikely encounter.

An Ixali birdman approached me and asked me, if he could have parts of the crashed airship.

I totally didn’t mind as it was not my airship.

So I followerd the Ixali into his stronghold. This surely was no attempt to lure an innocent 15 year old girl into a trap, right?

Of course it wasn’t! The green-blue Ixali can be trusted. They invited loads of adventurers to help them.

They actually formed the “Ecuhatatlaltlall Nine”, a group of Ixali who separate themselves from the extreme Garuda praying bridies.

Also, they are very hated and regarded as scum by the other Ixali. D:

Only I stood by their side to defend them.

Then, they asked me a huge favor. They needed an airship engineering expert. And I was to search for one.

Information is best obtained from Qiqirn merchants. If you provide them with fish or cling-cling, they give you all the information you need.

I found out that Tatamaru was the best airship expert in the area so I approached him with the hiring request of the Ixali.

His assistant was very defensive and didn’t want me to talk to Tatamaru.

As fellow Lalafell, of course he lend me an ear.

He even came with me to Sezul, the Ixal boss, and discussed with him some Airship designs. o.O

In the end, they spent hours discussing plans, designs and everything about the project.

Sezul told us, that the dream of his Ixali was to sprout wings and fly.

As their wings were kinda non existant, they needed an airship.

Tatamaru and me were chosen to help them.

My choice was very obvious.

I joined the Ehcatl Nine and did the dirty work for them in order to craft airship parts and deliver them to the airship building crew.

I stole parts from Qiqirn merchants…

I crafted at crafting facilities provided by the people around Fallgourt Float.

Little did they know I was making parts for the beastmen!

After a full week of hard work, we finally saw progress in the airship.

Tatamaru was satisfied.

His dream had always been to design and build his own airships, so he gladly joined Sezul’s team to make his dreams come true.

And there it was, our very unfinished but beautiful airship ö.ö <3<3<3

I shall work hard in order to provide materials for its completion.

Dear other adventurers, please support as much as you can! We gotta sprout wings and fly!
