    (rated E10+ for fantasy violence and frightening images)

    Our adventure across a fantasy Kalos starts now!

    The people of Cielore knew very well when spring was in the air--thousands upon millions of colorful diamonds suddenly appeared all across the land, and just as many caravans from all over the world came to seek them. It wasn't just the native Cielorians that searched for the diamonds--Wakunese refugees that now considered Cielore their adopted home, and travelers from Sabia, Galaria, and elsewhere all came to experience the grand diamond hunt for themselves, in remembrance of a great hero.

    Among the many caravans setting out for the long annual journey to seek diamonds and reach the royal capital of Illumis was a blonde haired girl in an elegant red plaid runeblade's costume. "Are you sure you want to travel with just two people, neighbor? Her Majesty recommends that a caravan be at least four people..."

    "I'm sure, Calem..." the girl replied. "If someone wishes to join my caravan in a town, I will happily welcome them if they have at least some character..."

    It's been about a month since Fiore first moved to Croquis. That one month period was just enough to get acquaintanced with their neighbors in the small (?) town. Two of these neighbors being Calem and Serena who, in Fiore's opinion, could be easily mistaken as a couple or something due to their closeness to each other.

    Anyway, the big day came. The day when many caravans set out for the long annual journey to seek diamonds and reach the royal capital of Illumis. Aunt Coco had already arranged for Fiore to join a particular caravan -- Serena's caravan -- beforehand. So now, donning one of their aunt's favorite black-purple robes (see here) refitted for a young masculine build, the Sabian youth made their way to the caravan he was supposed to join with. Not without beckoning their two Pokémon to come along, of course ("Lissa! Laslow! Come on, guys!").

    (Croquis is a small-medium sized town--it does have a small theater as some kind of attraction)

    Serena smiled as her companion for the long journey arrived. "Are you ready to go?" she asked as she carefully set a well loved mandolin case in a nest made of blankets to protect the instrument inside.

    "Yup," Fiore nodded to their companion for the journey (also with a smile) as they lugged their bag into the caravan. Not that much in the bag -- just a Cielore map, Aunt Coco's notebook, a set of spare clothes, and... a memento from their home country. Their Quaxwell, Laslow, then climbed on the caravan, followed by Lissa the Eevee (who simply hopped from her human's head) before joining the two themself.

    Once sure that she and her companion had everything they needed, Serena carefully climbed aboard into the wagon's driver's seat. "Good luck, neighbor..." Calem smiled. "Arceus' favor and protection be with you all."

    "Don't worry about us--you have your father's Scroll of Knowledge--so if you don't know which way to go, he will do what he can to help." Serena's mother agreed.

    "I made sure to pack that." Serena assured her mother. The enchanted scroll was a gift from Lucien--if anyone with an evil heart tried to read it, it would look blank. But if Serena or an ally read it, she could read her father's messages, even though Lucien was currently at Queen Diantha's side in Illumis.

    (Yep. Sorry for the delay -- just in time for the spoopy postfest. ;))

    Unbeknownst to Fiore, Aunt Coco was already with Serena's mother by the time he got settled in the caravan. "Lissa! Laslow!" the redhead lady called out which was quickly responded by Eevee and Quaxwell heads popping out from the caravan and directed to her. "Take care of Fiore for me, okay?" Laslow merely nodded in response and Lissa cheerfully waved a paw to her human's aunt.

    Fiore, meanwhile, had their face turned beet red at the whole exchange. Auntie, please...

    With that, Serena gave the reigns a flick, spurring the six Ponytas to make their way onto the main road leading out of the town. Some of the townsfolk stopped what they were doing to wave goodbye to yet another caravan departing on the long journey.

    Too bad Fiore didn't notice the neighbors waving goodbye -- he was still burying their face in their hands due to the embarrassment earlier. So much that Laslow had to console them as the caravan moved.

    Lissa, meanwhile, was still happily waving at the townsfolk.

    Even Serena had to find the waving Eevee cute.

    For the most part, the travel was uneventful. Besides, the town of Centbassin (so named for its hundred enchanted pools) was not far away. Aside from the hundred pools, there was the famed Galifeu Tower, named for the gold Combusken figurine at the top. If there were any diamonds in the town, it would more likely be in the tower--as the town's mayor found hiding a diamond in one of the hundred pools too dangerous after some caravanners drowned or came close to drowning.

    (If I have to guess, Centbassin would be north from Vaniville Croquis, somewhere between that and Aquacorde Quarellis. Did I get it right?)

    Now that they had recovered, Fiore took a look at their Cielore map to find a dot labeled Centbassin not far from Croquis. The map -- Fiore's one, at least -- also came with Aunt Coco's notes about each towns from her own diamond-seeking days. According to the note, the town of Centbassin got its name from the many enchanted pools to choose from. Laslow surely would have a field day here.

    (Not quite--the XY locations will be visited out of order, since I'm using real France as a base for the map. The first real XY location you'll reach is Dendemille Town)

    Since any diamonds would not be in in the hundred pools, if there were any diamonds to find at all, it would probably be in Galifeu Tower, Serena figured. If conditions were good, they would reach Centbassin in two days.

    (In that case, I'll need to get a map of France first...)

    Aunt Coco's notes Back in my days, diamonds were actually hidden in the pools. I was lucky I could send my Dratini, Nowi, to retrieve a diamond in one of the pools, but I've also seen people being way too reckless just to nab one. Why, they swam to the diamond's place on their own only for some to drown and/or came close to drowning -- and an onlooker said that's not even the first time it'd happened.

    Some time after I left Centbassin, I heard the mayor there decided to change the diamonds' location. Galifeu Tower, perhaps?

    (Btw, can we please skip to the town so @Pirate Captain can join ASAP?)

    (That was my plan!)

    The sun was starting to set when the caravan arrived in Centbassin some time later. Despite many a sign proclaiming that a diamond was waiting atop Galifeu Tower for seekers, the sun going down meant that their first attempt at a diamond would have to wait until the morning.

    Cele arrived at Centbassin after hearing she was to late to join when they actually set off. She had to plead for a fast Pokémon from one of the villagers to get to the next town. Luckily one of them had it so she could get there in time
    It was dark as she wondered around in search for the caravan.

    Eventually she saw two people who seemed to travel. Cele slowly walked up to them . "Uh are you uh searchin for uh the diamonds?" She felt nervous however at the same time she felt tired.


    (I am slightly basing my character off from Karina of the game Rune Factory 2)

    As soon as Fiore got down from the caravan, they stretched their limbs while Laslow helped Lissa down. It sure was a tiring trip. Not that long, just tiring. So much that their limbs went numb by the time the caravan had arrived at Centbassin. I mean, sure, Fiore had noticed the signs directing people to the Galifeu Tower, but it had to wait until everyone was properly recuperated.

    And then the Sabian youth spotted a lilac-haired girl dressed in black (@Pirate Captain cmiiw on this one) heading his and Serena's way. "Yeah?" Fiore was not sure whether it was enough an answer. "We just got here, though."

    "Were you maybe looking for a caravan to join?" Serena asked the girl as the innkeeper brought the Ponytas to the stables to rest for the night. "You can always join mine...."

    ''I see, yes I would like to join. If you two do not mind. I...'' Cele started as in her mind she was more. ''I am forces to join though'' she gave a small smile at them. ''I am Cele, what is your name?''

    (CMIIW, Correct Me If I'm Wrong. Specifically, correct me if I got my description of Cele wrong. ;))

    Yep, the premise of more people in the caravan sounded fun. The caravan being originally consisting of Serena and Fiore totally made sense when Serena offered a room for one more caravaneer right here... right?

    "Sure!" Fiore smiled brightly. "I'm Fiore, Fiorello Volt-- ow!" they introduced themself to the new girl, Cele, only for their Eevee to land on their head for some reason. "Ugh, sorry about that. This girl here is Lissa..." the blue mage said as they got their Eevee settled, then continued with a pat on their Quaxwell's shoulder, "...and the ducky guy here is Laslow."

    "I'm Serena--nice to meet you!" Serena smiled before Krystal joined her. "and this is my Braixen, Krystal."

    [Hello!] Krystal smiled.
