The Verdant Wilds is a massive jungle bordering the western side of the Mourning Sea. Steeped in mystery and danger, the Wilds gain their name from how unexplored they are. Much of the wilds are still unknown and only the boldest of men try to explore their depths.

Thick brush, deep cut valleys hidden from view, powerful rivers, and massive stone formations all work to hinder progress in traveling the wilds. Though it is believed by scholars that the wilds were once the center of civilization and although ruins have been found in some places, any hard evidence of what the scholars speak of and what riches these ruins may hold have gone undiscovered.

Shion walked down the uneven path not far from one of the few horse trodden roads going through the jungle. She hoped to find a small town or someplace to stop and rest, she was getting tired of camping and needed to re supply.

Shion stopped at a river and sat down to rest. Even though she was tired, Shion placed her bag next to a tree and stretched. She stood up on a rock and slowly moved her arms and hands practicing what her old martial arts teacher taught her. An old meditative movement that helped relax the mind from negative thoughts.

"Your not fluid enough" a man sitting next to the river startled Shion as he lit a metal pipe. He took a few puffs and soon started to chuckle "Like you have a stick up your ass."

"What would you know......my master...." Shion trailed off some

"Look girl, your master taught you well if you can remember the basics of that little dance.......but you, my dear, are hesitating" the man stood up and walked toward her, his red hair and red kimono stood out from all the green nature. The man stopped not far from Shion "My name is Kashi Jumon......just call me Kashi....." Kashi blew some smoke in her direction and she quickly waved it away coughing.

Shion watched Kashi and noticed the as he smoked, the metal turned red like it was hot as he held it. She raised an eyebrow and could not help but ask "Isn't that...hot, I knew some people who used pipes and sometimes when they light it, the end is too hot to hold.....even though most is wood."

"Girl....before that why dont you introduce yourself...only fair" Kashi said.

Shion felt somewhat ashamed for not introducing herself "I'm sorry....my name is Shion, its nice to meet you" after she gave her introduction Kashi laughed confusing her.

"I was just joking young lady.....no need to introduce yourself to a stranger" Kashi said chuckling. Shion sighed kind of glad it wasn't anything to serious.

Kashi stood there for a second thinking before he spoke up again "How about you come to my place, beats sitting out here in the jungle......plus I bet your hungry" when he said the Shions stomach growled "Come, I will feed you something for your troubles." The old man started to walk away not looking back at the girl. Shion hesitated at first but when her stomach growled again she followed right behind him.

Shion followed Kashi for a good hour before she stopped and stomped her foot "Where are you taking me? I could of found a town by now if I was not following you and what if your a cold blooded killer....you could be leading me into a trap or something."

Kashi simply smiled and pointed to a shack on top of a waterfall "The next town in any direction is a day or two away....you need a good amount of food and water to get to one....especially if your not used to traversing through this forest it will take its toll on your body very quickly" Shion sighed and nodded her head understanding and Kashi started walking again, they went up to the shack and she noticed how good it looked for a small shack. Some moss on the side where the water was but the shack itself looked new.

"Not what I expected....maybe this will do some good to rest" Shion said relaxing some more.

They both entered the shack, a fire pit in the center and a pot hanging above it. Kashi motioned Shion to sit down as he walked to a shelf and grabbed some vegetable he had and tossed them in the pot. He the poured some water into the pot "I hope you like veggies young lady, thats all I have right now" Kashi leaned down and with his hand he seemed to of lit the small brush in the pit and started a fire with just his hand shocking Shion.

"Huh...how.....you didn't even use anything to.....how did you do that? Shion was completely shocked and dumbfounded, she knew people could use magic in the world but always thought people needed some form to use it but the man in front of her just created a fire from his palm. She scratched her head and waited for Kashi to explain but at the same time her stomach growled and she became more worried about getting some food.

Kashi chuckled as the pot started to heat up "Not everything needs magic my dear, some of the natural elements can be used if you know how to use them" he grabbed a metal spoon and it soon started to turn a bright reddish orange and soon melted.
"Instead of using the dancing flames, I harnessed its heat.....after a while I can melt metal, heat up food, use it on weapons for more of an effect and of course if used in a burst....create a small flame based on how much I build up" Kashi stirred the soup he was making with a new spoon.

Eric stopped near the rapids and looked at his map, “Let’s see…if I keep moving north then maybe…no, they would lead me over a bunch of cliffs…but west is no better…”, Eric lowered the map and look around, “Where in Solaria’s good name am I?!” exclaimed Eric as he looked back down at his map, then up at the sun, “It’s going to be dark soon, if what those hunters said was true, then I’ll be in trouble if I get caught in the dark” said Eric, his stomach growling.

“Well, I have some bread from that kind old lady from the last town, if I ration it, it should last till I find a village”. Eric took off his backpack and reached into his bag, “It still smells so go-“, Eric stopped suddenly as he slipped on the wet rocks, sending his backpack and the bread flying into the air, landing in the rapids. Eric stood up and saw his bag in the water, “NO, I can still-“began Eric as he slipped again. He looked up and watch in horror as he watch his bag and food go over the waterfall.

Eric stared at the waterfall, completely dumbfounded, “Wha…what just happened…” said a defeated Eric as the sound of his stomach growling echoed from his belly.

Shion could not really take the smell of the soup, it was making her to hungry so she walked outside to get some fresh air. "That old man is doing that on purpose.....but the water fall here gets rid of the smell, thank goodness for that."

Shion walked up to the cliff and sighed glad she found something to eat. She stopped taking in the sights when she heard a faint voice "Huh?" She looked around and saw Eric. Shion was confused for a second but did not say anything waiting to see what would happen as she watched him noticing the defeated look he had.

The sound of Eric’s empty stomach filled the area as he was trying to process what just happened. “I guess…I’ll have to go…hunting…”said Eric in a defeated tone as he turned around and looked up and saw a young girl staring at him. They looked at each other for a second, and then suddenly, Eric stood up straight and cleared his throat. “Hello young lady, I fear I might be lost, do you think you can point me in the direction of the nearest village, I seem to have…misplaced…my belongings” said Eric as he tried to hide his embarrassment. “Oh, where are my manners, my name is Eric Walton, a Holy Knight of the Order of the Golden Sun” said Eric with a slight bow.

Shion bowed in respect "The order of the Golden...Sun? I don't think I heard of that before......oh....my name is Shion Li, Desciple of the Serpent style way, it is nice to meet you Sir Walton." Shion was not much for politeness but since this was only the second stranger she met she did not want to be rude. "And about the village, it may be wise to just ask the man in the shack for some food since the next town is a few days away according to him.....and I can help you find your belongings."

Eric smiled, “Thank you for the offer of helping me find my things, Ms. Shion, but I fear…”began Eric as he looks towards the waterfall, “Those belongings of mine might be a lost cause” finished Eric as he looked back at Shion with an awkward laugh. Eric looked around; looking for the shack, “You say there is someone else here as well…and the next town is a few days away…no wonder I’m lost” said Eric with a sigh, “So where is this man I can ask for food and directions?” asked Eric with a smile.

"He is cooking in the shack right over there" Shion pointed to the shack next to the water and smoke coming out from the top "He is making soup....may be rise to wait till he is done since it smells good and your stomach may eat itself" she joked as she looked down at the river below the water fall.
Shion wondered something as she started to walk back to the shack "May be best if we go ask him now before he finishes though......he is weird in my opinion."
