@Stormdragon

EDIT: Aw, I was to late! :( Can I still keep playing tomorrow?

(Should we ping or not, btw?)

With new resolve, Samael started his search through the bits and pieces and leftover inventions left from previous festivals, looking for something he could use as an engine. A huge car engine caught his eye first, but there was no way the tiny fae would be able to haul the large thing around; he would have to find something smaller. Some more searching brought him two more possibilities, and after some thought he decided on (A) a little case that looked like it would hold four small battery-sized objects - it was light and easy to handle and would probably suit him best, seeing as he would need to construct something easily portable if he wanted to get it back to his designated exhibition stand in time.

You sure can still play! If you're still after the RP category you are allowed to miss one day of RP.
No need to ping unless you have a question for me ^^ I make sure to read every post!

[center][b]Day 3[/b][/center] The faire is now brimming with the energy of a crowd, the events are all in full swing, and it seems like half the population of Sornieth has crowded into Lightning territory. You can see a lightning storm crackling above the building through the glass roof. It’s a beautiful and terrifying sight to see the dark clouds suddenly ignite with lightning. You see some movement in the clouds, is that a group of dragons flying through the storm? “Hello young one.” You jump at the sudden deep and crackly voice by your shoulder. You turn to see an old Tundra, who is more machine than dragon.

Silly kids decked out in the best lightning-harvesting equipment. So much danger, but so much energy to harvest up there in the clouds. Ha, not my cup of tea, but it sure works. Takes years of dedication to fly up in the stormclouds like that, and it really is a bonus if you’re born from Lightning, or even Earth.” You can hear gears whirring, and the light crackle of electricity coming from the old tundra. “You an inventor here? Good luck, I’ve seen some impressive stuff around here. Good luck impressing my grandson.” He walks away before you really have a chance to say anything to him. His grandson? Did he mean the coatl who greeted you earlier? You glance back at the Storm Dancers. If only you could harvest some of the energy from the clouds that easily. No matter, your easiest option now is to go outside to hunt for a power source. You’re likely to find something brimming with energy in this lightning-charged landscape. After a couple of hours of searching you find four items, which are you going to use?

"So there were [i]hamsters[/i], after all! If only I'd known." However, having not picked the wheel, he moved on to the other possibilities. He dismissed the jellyfish as too dangerous, not wanting to get stung. He was also pretty sure that his golem gauntlet wouldn't agree with the water. That only left the electrified almonds and stones. "I guess it comes down to which ones would power my engine better. Neither of them really fit, but maybe if I..." He mused. "Yes, that should do it! If I can modify the engine to convert these into energy, it should power my invention! The stems seem to already facilitate energy transfer from the bulbs, so linking them to the engine shouldn't be too difficult." Having found his solution, he quickly gathered up as many almonds as possible. [b]Y) Almonds[/b]

Flux returned from his painfully long search with four items and singed talons. He had underestimated how much electricity these contained, but that wasn't going to stop him from entering. Maybe. He stared at the items he held. The jellyfish would be extremely hard to handle, especially out of water. It was too dangerous to harness electricity from a damp object. The lemming was all fat and, as much its fur stood up, it didn't seem like a good source. If the almonds were edible, they wouldn't be that helpful. Flux chucked an almond in his mouth and flew back slowly, carrying several of the X) [item=Charged Tungsten].

Xen had stayed up late preparing plans for his newest engine. He kept it close at hand all night as he slept on Ursa's back in the storage room. He'd always preferred to stay on site for such things, better to be completely engaged in one's work than to worry about living situations. Ursa seemed surprisingly fine as well surrounded by the old (and occasionally sandy) equipment.

The golem sounded off again in the morning and with a quick glance at his tiny engine Xen realized exactly what he would need in order to power it. He tucked the item into Ursa's collar, lept up, and zoomed out of the storage room to the hall. He paused momentarily to look up at the storm dancers, his own inner lightning buzzing through his frills. There was a brief compulsion to head out and join them; but he had work to do. His frills flattened in surprise when the old Tundra spoke.
“Hello young one.”

Xen turned and began analyzing the dragon at hand. Habitually he pulled out a piece of paper and began writing.
Robot. Wiring. Aged. Birds. Covered. Mesmerizing. Study desired. A
He scribbled a bit as the dragon spoke, picking up the conversation but unable to contribute too much to it. He must have been old, but most dragons felt that way to Xen. He stuck the paper to the back of the tundra as he wandered off. He'd find the review later and be pleased, Xen was sure.

Outside.

The idea was simple, his power source had to be small and efficient, potentially rechargeable, and easily amplifiable if it was going to work. The solution, in that case, was obvious but it became a matter of finding a specimen. Xen scoured the sands for forty two minutes and thirty seven seconds (according to the Golem) before finally finding a single sample of Y) High-Voltage Almonds growing in the scrub lands nearby. It wasn't much, but it was really all he needed for the prototype. He harvested what he could, gave a cursory glance around just in case, then headed back to begin the real work.

This was going to be excellent.
