Ferdinand flinched then started trying to find a way upward. He wasn't really built for climbing so they were a little limited to a path they found. Ferdinand was lucky that Rubblus lived on a d.eath mountain with the same heat problem as he had been given a fireproof elixir and didn't catch fire when they passed the danger zone. (Though, technically Lynels have a resistance to elemental problems so while he would not be immune he would've taken longer to combust anyway)

Eventually they ran into another one of those flying machine things only this one was being followed by a goron. Yunobo. The boy was on his way to help Rudania retrieve the broken one as Rudania knew that one might not have been broken to the point of complete unsalvageability. 

First Ferdinand tensed at the sight of the drone then when Yunobo turned the corner with it the lynel screamed. And Yunobo screamed. They both screamed at each other with Yunobo's shield popping up and Ferdinand looking like he'd run the moment he was done screaming. The fact that fire was coming out of Ferdinand while he was screaming didn't really help to calm the situation.

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo

Raleona smiled, coming out with a pot of steaming stew as Jessa left to put Maxilar in his stall so he could rest in his dirt pile. 

"Don't worry, once I learned we were going to have a Goron visitor, I did my research. We have a few Gorons in town visiting for the festival. They have their own events they like to contribute for when we do things outside the walls so the Voe at the Kara Kara Oasis Bazzar can participate with their wives. I was able to ask them for advice on what to provide. They said Rock Stew was a popular dish back on Death Mountain. I've had some on the stove for the last few hours actually." Raleona assured the Goron, glad she had plenty of Goron Spiec in stock at the moment while her daughter came back after dropping off Maxilar, her backpack no doubt stashed in her room to be emptied by her mother later. 

"Mom likes to keep guests comfortable. We even have a stash of raw rocks for when Goron stay with us. They range from marble to sandstone so we have quite the variety." Jessa confirmed with a smug grin as she got food for Trixie. 

"I used a combination of sandstone, rock salt, obsidian, basalt, and lava rock to get the flavor right. Those were the rocks the Goron trader I spoke to recommended. Those might be his personal tastes, but I'm sure we can adjust the stew if you have a different preference." Raleona agreed, going back to the kitchen area to check on the stew before coming back. "Oh and Jessa, the meat will be ready in about 15 minutes. Go ahead and freshen up if you want to before the festival." She told her daughter. 

"Thanks Mom. I'll be in my washroom if you need me." Jessa called, waving a hand over her shoulder as she ducked into her own room to take care of what needed to be done. She so needed a bath right now and to wash her hair as well as redo the braids in her bun anyways

Grumf the Goron and Floofy the shadow kargarok

Grumf said "I'm not too worried about being dirty because...I'm a Goron. Given the rolling thing we do we're never entirely dirt free but I'll at least make sure I don't stink or have dirty hands spesificly or something." he then went and did that allowing Jessa's turn to be first for any cleaning related aplliance that needed to be shared. Grumf's version of freshinging up was probubly a lot more simple then Jessa's given the tiny amount of clothing he had and the fact that his hair wasn't long eather. If anything the biggest thing he did was change Floofy's diaper which then required him washing his hands for obveeus reasons.

Rubblus ~ Male ~ Alternate Goron

¤ Rubblus ¤

Rubblus stuck closely behind Ferdinand during the entire climb, halfly to motivate the Lynel to keep moving and halfly just in case... Ferdinand started sliding during the steeper bits. Thankfully it never came to him having to catch the Lynel.

Rubblus was glancing around, not recognizing any of this landscape at all (and by golly he should know what the place looks like. He's gotten border patrol duty several times before) when Ferdinand suddenly screaming grabbed his attention.

He quickly saw several things. The drone, the young and very oddly colored Goron, and of course Ferdinand's fire-screaming.

"CUT THAT OUT!!" Rubblus barked, clasping one hand on Ferdinand's shoulder and using the other to try and clamp the Lynel's mouth shut. "Stop with all of the SCREAMING!" he snapped, casting Yunobo an initially disapproving glare that turned into one of perplexment at Yunobo's shield-trick thing.

Ferdinand shut up at the attempt to cover his mouth but was sort of frozen in ether fear or just confusion. It was impossible to tell from looking at him.

Yunobo stopped screaming and after a moment of shock asked "IS THAT THING WITH YOU?!" looking at what to him was the weird colored Goron and pointing at Ferdinand as the thing.

Rudania told him [Yunobo! It's the Goron who broke my drone!] as he could see what was up through the drone that Yunobo had just been following. Yunobo however didn't really think that was the big issue at the moment. This guy was walking a LYNEL towards Goron city! Then Yunobo noticed something that somehow made this whole thing even weirder "Wait....is...is that lynel....pink? Goro. I didn't even know they came in pink." he asked.

His shield was still up through the whole conversation.

Rubblus ~ Male ~ Goron

¤ Rubblus ¤

Rubblus gave a snort, then gladly boasted to Yunobo "You probably didn't know that they came in Pink because the pink ones are never used for anything more than bait. This one, however, was just extra oblivious on the wrong day. Don't worry. He is my prisoner. This one wouldn't try anything, anyways."

Noting both Yunobo's calmness with the drone thing floating above him and also.. shield, Rubblus had several questions of his own at the moment. "Are you aware of that.. red glowing globe surrounding you? What is that?" he asked.

Yunobo the Goron

It took a moment or two for how calm this guy was talking about having a lynel as a prisoner to sort of move out of the way in Yunobo's mind enough for him to register the question. When he did he said "Wha-Oh! That's Daruk's protection. Goro. It's a rare ability that sort of runs in my family. You're....where are you...from? Goro."

Yunobo already had a bit of a hunch about what was going on here because of how weird it was but he wasn't about to jump to conclusions. This couldn't truly be another Grumf case could it? That artifact was lost. Did these folks touch something bad in their world too? Yunobo thought this HAD to be a time when he was jumping to conclusions. There HAD to be some sort of normal explanation for this. But...how had this guy not heard of Daruk? Was he some sort of weird Goron version of a hermit? That would explain why he might dye his back rocks too....if they were dyed. Yunobo just couldn't think of another reason they would be that color. Grumf's back was....NO! He was NOT going there! Not yet. Not without exploring all other possibilities!

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo

Jessa came out her hair still damp but in the braids in her hair already had the beads in place as she tied her long hair into her usual bun with the loose braids. She sniffed the air and checked the sky, seeing it was still a couple hours until sunset and the start of the Summer Nights Festival. 

"Hey Grumf, if you want to wash your hands, the bathroom's free. Dinner should be ready soon." She told the Goron, seeing Floofy still eyeing Trixie's chicken dinner. "I'll get Floofy something to eat so he doesn't try to steal from Trixie. She gets pretty food aggressive when someone does that." She added, going to the kitchen and getting another cooked drumstick from their cooling box. It was another Sheikah tech invention that allowed them to store food at perfect temperature. They could always reheat over the fire if they needed to or wanted something warm.

Grumf the Goron and Floofy the shadow kargarok

As he walked to the bathroom Grumf said "Probably a good idea. We wouldn't want a less friendly version of a food fight happening. I mean, you've seen Floofy be a thief before. He's not above it at all." 

Floofy wouldn't care that the food was cold though on first nibble he would pause for a moment startled by the temperature difference before he would then figure out what was up and continue eating what was given to him.

Jessa laughed at the memory as she got some cooked meat from the skewers in the cooling unit and heated them up for Floofy on the stove before taking it off the metal skewers to give him the meat. 

"Yeah, he snatched a bun right out of my hand! I didn't even notice until I went to take a bite!" She recalled as she set the food in front of the crazy looking bird. 

"Here ya go Floofy. No stealing from Trixie. She doesn't like that. She will attack if you do." Jessa warned the bird, giving him a warning glare that would send Rudania running.

Grumf the Goron and Floofy the shadow kargarok

Given Floofy was the sort of creature that would actively pester Vah Rudania in revenge for Rudania's distaste for him/attempt to step on him when they first met the glare didn't do much. In fact he didn't even seem to be listening as he was entirely focused on investigating and then eating the food he was given. Luckily a distraction was better then a verbal no when it came to Floofy anyway.

Grumf came back from the bathroom a little while later and noted "Is it just me or is basically all Gerudo stuff fancy? I don't know if that's just for the festival or what but there's a lot of fancy stuff in this town."

Rubblus ~ Male ~ Alternate Goron

¤ Rubblus ¤

That actually wasn't as weird of a question to Rubblus as it might've been to Yunobo. You see, where Rubblus comes from, the Gorons had conquered alot of different territories surrounding Death Mountain, which meant that there were several other Goron villages outside of the one set in Death Mountain. In fact, the Goron occupation on death mountain could really be considered more of a city at this point than a village.

 

"Ah, yes. I am from Death Mountain, born and raised as a matter of fact. Are you from one of the villages further down the mountain? ...Might explain your.. er... Different appearance. I knew it was a bad idea to branch out. I suppose it can't be HELPED, but it's clearly not good for us to be in such a cool climate down there." Rubblus said, scratching his head thoughtfully as he eyed Yunobo. "Say.. do you know what's up with the flying machines? There's one right next to you, if you didn't already see that." he asked, pointing up at the drone.

Yunobo the Goron

Yunobo stared at the other Goron. "Um...." he started.

Rudania helpfully added [I DID sense something very similiar to what happened before Grumf showed up....if that means anything.]

Yunobo visibly flinched then turned towards the drone and said "G-Goro! THAT ABSOLUTELY MEANS SOMETHING! BY THE G.ODS! HOW CAN THIS HAVE HAPPENED TWICE IN A ROW?! Goro! HOW?! WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT COUL-"

As Yunobo ranted Ferdinand slowly edged near Rubblus like he was going to try to hide behind him or something. Rubblus might be scary but what appeared to be a mentally challenged Goron was much worse.

Yunobo stopped himself, took a few breaths then said "Ok. Before I answer that I have to ask. Did you two....touch anything...weird today? Goro. Not like the flying thing by me. A different weird thing. Goro."

¤ Rubblus ¤

Rubblus was aware of Ferdinand's inching, but as long as he had a hand on the lynel, he wasn't too worried about him getting away. What he was more worried about was this clearly sick young Goron.

 

"No, I haven't touched anything out of the ordinary today. Frilly-boy here's been catching bugs." Rubblus answered, before adding "Do you need to sit down or something? You don't.. seem well. At all. Why are you all the way out here?"

Yunobo said "Actually, you might need to sit down. Goro. I'm about to tell you something that might sound a little....crazy. But I swear that it's true because it already happened to a Goron and his weird monster pet once before you."

Ferdinand didn't argue because he wasn't about to do that with a crazy person. He just sat down on the ground.

Yunobo then said "You...may have....slipped into an alternate version of Hyrule from the one you're use to. Goro."

"WHAT?!" Ferdinand piped up freaking Yunobo out a bit because as he said "Oh! I...didn't know he talks ether. Goro. That's actually a little reassuring."

¤ Rubblus ¤

Rubblus stared at Yunobo for several moments. He hadn't sat down when offered to.

 

".....Slipped.. into an alternate Hyrule? How is that even possible?" Rubblus asked, arching an eyebrow. It did make a little sense, actually. It would explain why this very Death Mountain-ish area was so off and so clearly not the Death Mountain he knew. His expression then suddenly hardened, and he looked back at Ferdinand. "Wait a minute. YOU. You said your teleportation is finicky. You didn't try to teleport and ended up doing it wrong, did you!?" he interrogated, raising a closed fist threateningly.

Ferdinand put his hands up defensively and whined "AAAAH! WORLD JUMPING IS NOT WHAT I MEANT BY FINICKY! I SWEAR! I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO END UP IN LAVA OR SOMETHING!"

Now a little concerned for the lynel's safety after hearing it speak and seeing it cower Yunobo said "I-It might not have been him! Goro. I don't really have an answer for what it was but can we maybe...work this out....peacefully? Goro. As I said before you're not the only person this happened to. There was another Goron with a monster bird. He said he'd messed with some sort of artifact that did it. Goro. That's why I asked if you two touched anything weird."

Finally by this point Yunobo's shield wasn't up anymore as he wasn't as threatened by the lynel after that disturbingly familiar display. (Familiar in that Yunobo was also easy to freak out so he knew the feeling that caused the loud fast talking he just heard from the lynel)

Raleona smiled as Floofy continued to investigate, bringing out food for both her daughter and her guest to enjoy. The rock stew was still steaming when she set it on the table. 

"It all depends on the person's design preference. Most of these are family heirlooms passed from mother to daughter in my family or gifts from my husband Shima over in Kakariko over in the East. That's why it's sort of a mix of cultures and why we have so much Shiekah tech like our cooling box and such. Not everyone can afford a cooling box after all. I personally prefer a lot of color, so does Jessa. You may have noticed that in the little room she set up in Vah Naboris for her little hideaway there has a lot of color and practical use," Raleona commented, smiling at the young Goron. "Now eat up before the food gets cold. I'm sure Nabu is eager to see Jessa and the two of you want to go with Maxilar to check out the festival tonight." She told the two kids as Jessa immediately dove into her spiced meaty rice balls. Those were the girl's favorite after all. Jessa had one in each hand and was eating them - or rather trying to inhale them.

Raleona smiled, pleased that her dish came out well. 

"I had one of the Goron merchants help me set the base flavors. They were my taste testers this morning and of course I compensated them well for their time. I don't think they objected to free food. It took me several tries to get the flavors right." The older woman admitted, smiling at her goron guest. There was a loud honking barking noise from outside and Jessa looked up from her rice balls, rolling her eyes. 

"Sounds like Nabu's getting cranky that we haven't come to see him yet. He can probably see Floofy when he sticks his head out the window. We better finish up and go see him or he'll bark like that all night. He's done it before when he demands attention. Nabu can be such a diva sometimes." Jessa told Grumf, earning another honking bark from Nabu outside as if he heard her. There was one other thing about Nabu that most people didn't know about other than his handlers in Frelly's family knew about. There was a loud shout of protest from the direction of the stables and a loud crrrack of wood. Jessa sighed. She knew what that meant: Nabu escaped. Again. Sure enough, the Sand Seal poked his head in the window, barking like mad when he saw Jessa. She rolled her eyes and went to the window. 

"Hey big guy, did you break out of the pen again, you silly thing?" She asked, the large tusks on her reddish gold mount the only thing keeping him from getting his full face in the large window as Raleona laughed her head off. That earned a happy bark from Nabu as Jessa rolled her eyes again. 

"I will take that as a "yes" I suppose. As you can see, we have new friends staying with us this festival." Jessa told the Sand Seal, earning a curious cross between a rumble and a honk from the creature. 

(time for a little Sand Seal mischief!)

Grumf found the seal issue incredibly funny and he nearly shot stew out his nose laughing which of course resulted in a coughing fit followed by him explaining that he was fine through the coughs. Floofy walked right over to investigate the other creature curiously.

Nabu seemed just as curious about Floofy as Floofy was of him. The Sand Seal honked a greeting at the alien looking bird, tilting his head to one side to show off his mane. Jessa couldn't help but laugh at his antics. 

"Looks like Nabu might be making a new friend." The girl noted, smiling as the Sand Seal flopped back and forth on his flippers as if doing a little greeting dance - which was what he did as a pup when he met Jessa when they were both younger. She'd had him for ten years. Sand Seals could live to be about 40 in the wild and 80 in captivity where they were well cared for.

Floofy bobbed his head back and flapped his wings twice with a honk to return the showing off.

"I have to agree with you on that one. I'm probably safe in assuming that Floofy doesn't usually like new people or creatures so fast! But Nabu has this weird effect where he can instantly get people to like him. Of course, that depends on the person or creature." Jessa agreed, smiling. She'd already finished eating at this point and got an idea. 

"Hey Grumf, I gotta get Nabu here back to the pen so Frelly doesn't freak out too much about him escaping again. Why don't we let him and Floofy play while we go check out the festival? That should keep the two of them out of trouble for awhile." She suggested, figuring that Floofy would like playing with someone as big as Nabu - the big lug was probably slightly bigger than a Goron anyways. Maybe even heavier and a good wrestling buddy for the Shadow Kagarock

"Trixie will remind us about that. She's good about that sort of thing. Come on, let's get this big doofus back where he belongs, shall we?" Jessa replied, smiling at Grumf as Nabu barked happily like an oversized dog. Jessa led the way outside and he pounced, tackling her to the cobblestone underneath. Jessa yelped in response. 

"GAH! SERIOUSLY NABU?! Do we have to go through this every time I come home?" She asked the big ol' Sand Seal, earning a happy honk-bark as if he was saying "You don't pay attention to me, you get flattened!" in Sand Seal. He did let Jessa up after about a minute though, nuzzling her with his muzzle, hugging her with his fins. "Yeah, I missed you too, ya big ol' clump of brown sugar." Jessa replied, kissing his big ol' snout and scratching under his chin.

"Just found out why Floofy likes him." Grumf half joked after following Jessa out with Floofy. Only half though because Floofy has been known to tackle him randomly too. In fact Floofy was intently watching with a few head bobs. Grumf hoped he would hold off on jumping Nabu until they got the two where they needed to be as clearly Floofy was thinking about joining that game.

Rubblus slowly looked over his shoulder at Yunobo, furrowing his brow in a slightly confused manner. He didn't quite get why the kid was being so sympathetic to a LYNEL. But nevertheless he lowered his fist after Yunobo had driven his attention away from all of that.

"Well how are we in this 'alternate hyrule' then? Something had to have caused it. Maybe it's that big lizard we saw earlier. There's a giant lizard living in your Death Mountain, you know." Rubblus said.

Jessa laughed as they headed back to the stables, Nabu taking the lead and doing his little seal walk as he barked happily. Jessa rolled her eyes in response. 

"Yeah, my big dork is an attention hog. But I love the big dork anyways. I don't get to spend much time with him when I'm visiting Dad, obviously. I didn't get to spend time with him between coming home from Kakariko then going to the Palace. I've had Nabu since he was a pup. I was helping Frelly with the animals and his mama wouldn't take care of him for some reason. I offered to foster him and he sort of imprinted on me." Jessa explained, giving her big ruddy colored friend a pat on the rump as they approached the paddock that Frelly was working on repairing. 

"Hey Frelly! Nabu got out again." Jessa greeted the other woman, glad to see she got the paddock fence up so quickly.

Yunobo laughed then said "Sorry, it's just. Vah Rudania wouldn't do a thing like that even if he could. Goro. He's friendly. In fact you asked why I was out here? I was going to get that drone you smashed. Goro. That's what we call those flying things by the way. Drones or sentries depending on who you ask. Goro. They belong to Rudania. He can see through them like extra eyes. Goro." he sort of thumb gestured at the drone hovering over them.

Ferdinand said "T-The flying things belong to the LIZARD MONSTER?! Is he mad at us now?!" to which Yunobo replied "Eeeeeh. More annoyed really. It's not the first time someone broke one of those because he got one up in someone's business. Goro. He'll forgive you rather easily if you just apologize."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grumf added to Jessa's call "And we brought a play mate I hope doesn't creep you out!"

Frelly noted "I expected as much when I didn't see him. In fact I was about to go looking for him. You saved me a lot of time." on the topic of the sand seal then sort of looked Floofy up and down before noting "Should I even ask?"

[HEEEEEEY! Rude!] Sent Rudania letting out a roar that could be heard from where the group was in an attempt to show that he'd heard that.

Yunobo said "Aaand now you might want to apologize for saying that at some point too. Goro. He IS inteligent. He can't really talk the way you and I do but he understands what we say perfictly. Goro. I would know because I'm sort of...mentally linked to him....all the time. It's uh....It's a long story. Goro."

Ferdinand said "This just keeps getting worse!"

Jessa laughed and rolled her eyes, giving Floofy a pat on the shoulder as Nabu went back into the open paddock to join the other Sand Seals, a large female that was a dark crimson color eyeing Grumf curiously, but otherwise the other Sand Seals ignored them. 

"Yeah, he came over to my house while we were eating dinner. And as for Floofy and Grumf, it's kind of a long story that I'll have to tell you later. It has to do with my visit to the palace earlier this week. He needed a place to stay and Shadow Kagarock aren't exactly fire proof, so I offered to let them stay at my place." She explained to Frelly, leaning on the paddock fence. 

"Floofy's the new playmate by the way. He plays nice with Trixie, but he needs someone he can really roughhouse with. So I offered to let Nabu play with him. The hope is the two big lugs will be able to keep each other out of trouble. Would you mind checking in on them from time to time? Make sure they don't get into too much trouble or break out again." Jessa added, gesturing to the two creatures. Another Sand Seal barked at them, earning a piece fo fruit from a nearby bucket from Jessa in response. "Hey Trilla! Good to see you too big girl!" She greeted the Sand Seal. It was one of the rental seals, smaller than Nabu, but still a good size even though she was only 20 years old

Frelly said "I think I can handle that given I have to check up on the seals anyway. Anything I should know about the Vure you call a Shadow Kargarok?"

Grumf said "He's a bit of a trouble maker but there's treats in his saddle bag. If he starts being a problem it's better to distract him or tell him no and then put his attention elsewhere then it is to expect him to take a no by itself."

Frelly noted "So that IS a saddle. You ride that thing? Impressive that a bird can lift a Goron."

On the mention of the saddle Grumf decided that he should remove it for now so Floofy could play completely unhindered. He set the thing off to the side a bit not terribly worried someone might try to steal it as it wouldn't fit much other then Floofy anyway. Once that was done (and after taking off the bird diaper since they were outside now) he said "Alright Floofy. Have fun with your new friend and be good, alright?" giving the bird a pat himself.

Floofy showed no signs of listening to the words specifically. But he knew what the saddle being taken off meant. Run around time! When Grumf backed away from him Floofy darted off to explore the area before he would attempt to start up a game.

As that was happening Frelly approached Jessa and playfully said "You can never help yourself from spoiling them can you."

"Nope!" Jessa replied, a smug grin on her face. All the Sand Seals in this stable knew her. She used to come over all the time for riding lessons when she was younger. She watched a few startled Sand Seals dissapear beneath the deep sand of the paddock for a moment before popping up again to investigate what Floofy was up to before Nabu decided to tackle him. 

"And there goes Nabu with the roughhousing." She sighed, rolling her eyes at the antics of her Sand Seal. She was pleased to see Nabu playing with Floofy and the other Sand Seals joining in on the fun. 

"We'll be at the opening ceremonies of the festival. Let us know if these two cause too much trouble for you, OK Frelly?" Jessa told the Sand Seal handler, smiling at her friend as they got ready to go

Grumf the Goron and Floofy the shadow kargarok

"Can do." Frelly replied watching Floofy give a honk in startle before getting all competitive and trying to return the favor to Nabu.

Grumf said "Floofy's going to love that. Really he will. He loves wrestling as much as the Gorons from my home love sumo wrestling which is so important to our culture that we'll even use it to see if we think someone can handle specific jobs. Cuz...you know. It's not really good to give someone of a race not usually as strong as a Goron a job that might hurt them unless you have some proof that they can hold their own. Anyway, I have no idea what the highlights of these festivals are so...I'm sort of just going to follow you if that's ok."

"That's fine with me. As for the wrestling thing, sometimes the visiting Goron will challenge the Gerudo warriors to Sumo matches. It's actually kinda fun. I nearly beat one of the traders once myself, but I ended up getting thrown into one of the fountains." Jessa recalled, an embarrassed smile on her face as she led Grumf into the main festival area. 

"As for the festival, sometimes we let visiting merchants from other cultures add in their own events. Wrestling for the Gorons, horse races for the Hylians, that sort of thing. I'll be doing a combat demonstration myself with my chakram." She told Grumf, patting the weapons attached to her hip. The jewels on the hilt sparkled, almost seeming to glow from within as the sun began to set behind the distant mountains that bordered the Gerudo desert, signifying the start of the festival

Grumf the Goron

Grumf laughed then said "So you can actually go toe to toe with Gorons huh? Even if you didn't win that's really impressive. I mean, I don't know about here but where I come from Goron's are famously strong and while I don't know, yours don't look that different so I assume it's the same. Makes me almost tempted to challenge you myself."

Jessa laughed at the idea of Gorons being any different here than in Grumf's world. She smiled as she watched the opening ceremonies from the edge of the crowd in the village center. 

"Yeah, I may not be as strong as a Goron, but I don't say no to a challenge. There's a kid back in Kakariko that makes everyone puzzles if you ask him to. They're really good ones too if you need something to do when you're bored. I'll ask one of the Goron if they're doing any of the wrestling challenges this year. Maybe some of the Rito visitors will provide music. I know a Rito Vai that does amazing things with her msuic. She can sing, dance, play multiple instruments, you get the idea." She agreed, Trixie darting ahead to greet a Goron. He laughed, reachiing down to scratch her behind the ear before darting back to Jessa. In fact, it was the same Goron who beat her last year. 

"Hey Jessa! I was wondering when you'd be back! They said you were called to the palace!" The Goron, a big Voe named Mokola, clomped his way over to greet them. "And who's this with you? I don't think I've seen him around before." Mokala added, the tatooed Goron noticing Grumf for the first time. 

"Hey Mokala, it's always good to see you! I just got back a couple hours ago actually, Nabu escaped again. As for this big Voe," here she gestured to Grumf. "If you saw a weird looking Vure around, it belongs to him. It's a creature called a Shadow Kagarock named Floofy. His name is Grumf. Grumf, this is the Goron who threw me into the fountain last year. His name's Mokala. He comes here to sell the spices they make up at the Death Mountain villages. He most likely helped Mom make that Rock Stew you had earlier." Jessa told him, earning a laugh from the big Goron and a slap on the back that sent her stumbling. 

"Actually, I was the ONLY Goron who was able to help Raleona make her rock stew! I hope it turned out OK. I know we used my favorite rocks, but I hope you liked it." Mokala replied, the big Voe grinning like an idiot as Trixie bounced off his big belly. She always did that with Goron she knew, it was sort of a game with her.

Grumf confirmed "Oh, the stew was good! I may have changed a few small things up if I was making it but I liked it enough I wasn't about to complain." then he turned to Jessa and said "So, I take it you don't mind the smack on the back greeting too much. I actually use to do that until someone snapped at me for scaring them. Decided maybe that wasn't something I should do to strangers if I wanted to give a good first impression. Hylia knows Floofy made that h.ard enough by itself sometimes without me doing things to mess it up."

"Yeah, I'm kinda used to it from the other Goron that come to visit." Jessa admitted, playfully punching Mokala in the shoulder in response as he laughed, pulling her into a headlock. 

"I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the stew! When Raleona told me she was hosting a Goron visitor, I jumped right in to help out! I've known Jessa here since she was barely 20! She'll keep you and your pet Vure out of trouble. She even helped me learn Gerudo and how to pronounce things properly." Mokala told Grumf, giving Jessa a bit of a challenge as she managed to wriggle free of his headlock and tried to do the same to him. From their playful roughhousing, it was clear to anyone watching that the two were long-time friends from the way they were behaving. 

"And in return, Mokala here taught me how to wrestle!" Jessa agreed, laughing as she climbed onto the larger Goron's back to avoid another headlock before wrapping her legs around his neck and trying to take him down that way instead, which succeeded. He tapped out and got up, letting the girl perch on his shoulders for now. 

"You know, wrestling matches are starting tomorrow. You two should sign up. I know someone's entering a certain skeletal horse of theirs in the race the night after." Mokala commented, giving Grumf a critical look. He could tell the Goron had been in the ring before. It was a popular event at the Festival. "And I know Jessa's doing her chakram demo tonight. That's always fun to watch. It's amazing what she can do with her weapons. It's like watching a dance or something."

Grumf said "You know....I think I will sign up. See how well I still hold up after a while of not wrestling. I've never been the best but I'm not the worst eather and it's all in good fun. I'm also interesting in watching that cha.....whatever those weapons are called. Thing. Sorry, I've never met someone with those before."

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo

Jessa laughed, resting her elbows on Mokala's head as she usually did when he let her sit on his shoulders like this. 

"They're called Chakram. It's pronounced "Cha-khr-AHM. They're a weapon often used in the East by the Sheikah. They're also commonly known as ring blades because of their shape. I'm the only Gerudo to use them. Most of my Gerudo Sisters prefer using spears or swords. I like to be different and use something else. So I went with the traditions of my Dad's side of the family since I'm also half Sheikah." Jessa explained as she smiled down at Grumf as they walked the festival with Mokala. 

"It's true. Took me awhile to figure it out. I still get the pronunciation wrong sometimes, but Jessa doesn't make fun of me for it. And she always scolds the little ones when they do." Mokala commented as Jessa leaned over to grin down at him as one of the kids from earlier ran up. It was little Sotako from earlier. 

"Hey Jessa! Lady Riju asked me to remind you that your chakram demonstration is in half an hour! You should start heading over to the combat demonstration over in Kara Kara Bazaar! Everyone's already heading over there!" The little girl called up. Jessa responded by flipping over and landing in a catlike crouch in front of her. 

"Thanks Sotako. I'll head over. I just need to grab Maxilar and check in on Nabu and Floofy. Shouldn't take us more than five minutes." Jessa told the little girl, ruffling her hair and sending her back to her mother so they could go over to the Oasis. Almost everyone would be going. 

"Speaking of Sand Seals. Grumf, how do you feel about your first sand seal lesson being tonight? It'll be a good way to keep an eye on Floofy and Nabu if we bring them with us to the Bazaar. I can ride Maxilar. He can easily keep up on sand." Jessa suggested, glancing back at the smaller Goron.

Grumf said "Sure. I'll give it a go. Might default to rolling for actually traveling somewhere if I don't do well or it ends up more trouble then it's worth though. I can roll pretty fast and I'd rather take more time to learn another time then crash into somebody. So....I'll give it a go but no promises on me being able to get far. Hey, sort of unrelated but I'm curious. When you call someone Sister do you mean you literally have a lot of sisters from a different dad or are you using it the way we Gorons call close friends Brother?"

"It's sort of a respect thing in the way that Gorons call close friends "Brother". It's a cultural thing. In the eyes of Hylia and the other Goddesses, we're all seen as sisters of one mother. It sort of brings us closer together as a people." Jessa explained, pleased that Grumf was willing to at least try. 

"We'll have to get you a large shield. You can use mine. I'll opt for rolling over sand seals thank you very much. My last time I rode one? I made the mistake of going for a wild yellow one because he looked like a Goron. Dang thing threw me into a rock wall on a sharp turn! I've tried since, but I'm just not very good with the things. I will admit it." Mokala told the younger Goron, sort of clomping along after them. He was pleased to see Maxilar eagerly pawing the ground in his stall, earning a pat from Jessa and from Mokala. "Hey Max, good to see ya boy!" The goron greeted the Stallhorse, earning a happy nicker. 

"We'll be heading out Max. Let's get you saddled up then we can go grab Nabu and Floofy." Jessa told hte stallhorse as Trixie darted into his stall and yipped happily as she wove in and out of the anima's legs while Jessa put his saddle and bridle on, not even stepping on the fox's tail as she did so. It only took her about a minute to set everything up while Mokala produced his shield. 

"Here, you can use my old shield for Sand Seal riding. It's a little worn, but it should still hold a Goron." Mokala told Grumf, handing him the large shield with the symbol for Din's fire embossed into the rim of the metal in a continuous pattern.

Grumf said "Ooooh. Worn or not this is pretty. And...kind of fitting. You know, given the fire related symbol." looking over the sheild he continued "Now, I'm not entirely sure if I'll be saddling Floofy up when we get him. It's helpful to have it on him but at the same time it wasn't all that long ago since we took it off so I might just let him follow us without it.....then again the saddle does help people figure out he's tame. ....See the delema I have?"

¤ Rubblus ¤

Rubblus glanced around when he heard the roar, thinking it was just the volcano or something but the way Yunobo framed it made it seem like it was something Rudania did. He crossed his arms, getting a little bit annoyed with all of these 'apologies' he was apparently racking up to some giant lizard monster. Instead of immediately apologizing he instead said "Mentally linked? So it reads your thoughts and that stuff? Do YOU get to do the same to it?"

Yunobo confirmed "Yeah. It goes both ways. Goro. Which can be awkward sometimes."

Ferdinand said "That's....creepy. Really really creepy. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be insulting or anything just....yeesh."

Yunobo replied "It's ok. It sort of freaked me out at first too. Goro. He won't be doing it to you if that helps."

"It does actually." Said Ferdinand.

Rubblus was still having a hard time figuring this all out. He also wasn't quite sure of why Yunobo was being so nice to Ferdinand but he ruled that one down to the kid's earlier mention of not having much experience with Lynels. "Alright, alright. Clearly there are a great many things that need to be explained here-" he started to say, then a question suddenly struck him and he couldn't help but ask it. "Wait. Rudania uses those machines as eyes. How can he do that?"

Yunobo said "Goro. I....think they're just sort of part of him or something." He looked at the drone for assistance and said "Is that right?"

Rudania replied [Close enough.] knowing anything technical would just be confusing as it even confused him a little.

Yunobo translated "Rudania says close enough."

Ferdinand said "The machines are part of the lizard monster?" and sort of edged away from the drone a step because now he sort of thought it might be gross even though it wasn't a literal flying eyeball or something.

Yunobo said "Can you maybe... NOT call him a lizard monster? Goro. You know his name now and he's listening to this whole conversation. Goro. It's a little rude."

Ferdinand said "SORRY! I'M SORRY! IT JUST SLIPPED OUT CUZ I'M STILL KIND OF SCARED OF GETTING EATEN OR SOMETHING! .....THATJUSTSLIPPEDOUTTOO!!!!"

Yunobo explained "Vah Rudania doesn't eat people. Goro. He can't. He's a machine and doesn't have a throat. ....Funny enough this is the second time I've had to explain that this week. Goro."

Ferdinand stared at Yunobo. Then said "W-Wait. A machine?! SOMEONE BUILT THAT THING!?"

"Yes." Yunobo confirmed continuing "I had to answer that question this week too."

Ferdinand was horrified because immediately he thought this was likely for a planned invasion or something and didn't like that he was a non-Goron in this world right before that was clearly about to happen. He kept quiet for a moment to avoid saying anything that might upset these clearly dangerous people.
