The Cat's Out of the Bag

April 20th, 0165AL (2021)


brian2gk4.jpgBrian: It seems no one has used this gate in awhile...

laurbl7.jpg Laur: That would be correct.

They began walking forward, into the forest.

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: So, what do you think we will find?

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: Isn't that what we're supposed to find out?

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: Just guess something other than trees, and then we can see if it is here.

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: Oh. How about... some sort of ruins?

ltblacktb7.jpgLt. Black: I say a mineral deposit.

laurbl7.jpg Laur: A road.

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: Okay, we got ruins, a mineral deposit, and a road. Brad, what...

laurbl7.jpg Laur: No, I found a road.


They walked over to where Laur was standing, and just past some thick trees, they came to a gravel road, which stretched out into the hills in both directions.

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: I think we should follow it, but stay to the side in case someone comes.

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: Which way?

brad2ye7.jpgBrad: There is nothing coming up on the life signs detector, nothing of interest at least.

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: This way. And keep scanning.

He pointed off to their left, where the road went downhill.

laurbl7.jpg Laur: And I guess there will be a town.

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: Brad?

brad2ye7.jpgBrad: Cars.

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: And I say farms.


After walking for about half an hour, they came to an intersection. Laur looked at the sign, but since the only thing on the sign were squiggles, it didn't help much.

brad2ye7.jpgBrad: I'm picking something up on the life signs detector, down the other road. It's right on the outer limit of the detectors range.

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: Then were going that way.


After walking for another 15 minutes they came to a small town, and they saw a person standing out next to a fence, who looked up as they approached.

thuggq6.jpgPerson: Hello

He walked over to them, but hung back when he saw them.

thuggq6.jpgPerson: I don't mean to be rude, but just what are you?

laurbl7.jpg Laur: We're explorers.

thuggq6.jpgPerson: No, I mean what are you... Are you Muphridian?

laurbl7.jpg Laur: No, I'm a zuke.

thuggq6.jpgPerson: Oh. I don't think I have heard of zukes before, why don't you come over to my house to talk? Also I'm Karun.

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: Okay.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Do you know anything about the muphridians?

ltblacktb7.jpgLt. Black: Yes, some live where we come from, but there is also the Muphridish Empire where most live. And you look oddly familiar...

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Where is it, and who do I remind you of?

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: It is on the other side of the galaxy.

ltblacktb7.jpgLt. Black: You look like someone I saw on the planet Amanz.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: I've never heard of Amanz, and how did they get here?

brad2ye7.jpgBrad: How did who get where?

thuggq6.jpgKarun: The muphridians, how did they get here?

laurbl7.jpg Laur: How do you know they got here?

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Everyone on Aroh knows they came here, it is how we got here.

laurbl7.jpg Laur: Is Aroh this planet?

thuggq6.jpgKarun: yes, and this town is Treevard. Do you know how the muphridians came here?

brian2gk4.jpgBrian: They have starships that can easy travel across the galaxy.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Is that how you got here?

ltblacktb7.jpgLt. Black: No, we come though the stargate.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Stargate?

There as a low rumbling in the air, which quickly faded. Brad walked over to the rear gate, while the others stayed near Karun's house.

laurbl7.jpg Laur: It is a method of quick transportation between any two planets, as long as both planets have a stargate.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Where is this stargate?

majzargolfne1.jpgMajor Zargolf: It's in the forest, not too far from here.

thuggq6.jpgKarun: Oh, you mean the Ring?

ltblacktb7.jpgLt. Black: Yes, I think.


There was another, louder rumbling, and a small ship appeared from over the trees, and hovered over where Brad was standing, and a greenish-white light appeared around him, coming from the ship. Someone who happened to be driving by also saw this, and they spun out and nearly hit a tree from the shock of it.

To be continued... after I return from Florida.


Due to time issues caused by track and my upcoming trip to Florida, I was unable to make an update for Myoria this week. So instead, here is the small town of Treevard.


gabry85: Which beach did you go to?

s_olah: Thanks for the comment!

Smarty218: Glad you like it!

Schulmanator: The Blikorani are up to whatever Mloret's Blitkarni tell them to do, as the Blikorani are the ships. You'll see what it is though... if you haven't already.

crushedcar: Thank you for the comment!

zelgadis: So that's what you meant. Yes, it was just the nukes that did it.

palin1288: Indeed. And it could be more than one...
