    "My name is Schismic Rift, or Shyss for short, and with me are Chaos Dance, Ferrum Pango, Patient and Marr." Shyss said indicating to each of the ponies in turn. Once Captain Saltwind had greeted everypony, Shyss continued, "Now what do you mean by fares? We were told that this boat had already been payed for?"
    Captain Saltwind pulled out a small book from his pocket and flicked to a page just past the half way mark. After a quick glance he shrugged and placed the book back into the pocket he pulled it from. "It seems this trip has already been paid for.If you'd all please follow me, I'll give you a tour of the boat."

    OOC: Can somepony else give the tour of the boat, I named it and I feel like I've done too much just by doing that.

    As the group walk into the boat, they are unbalanced to start off with but got used to the slight rock of the boat.
    "As ye see here is the main attraction, this is a place which you guys can see everything around you, water mainly" He laughed at his own joke and everypony looked a eachother awkwardly.
    "
    Anyway if ye follow me down these steps ill show ye your cabins"
    Ferrum is rather anxious about whether his sleeping quarters will be comfy or not.
    "Im kinda regretting not bringing my bed" Ferr said as he walked down the steps

    "These here are the cabins. Two to a cabin, I'm afraid, so sort that out among yourselves." The cabins were a simple affair. Two beds, one port and one starboard, a chest of drawers/desk affair between them and a porthole to one side, with a curtain. The beds were quite comfortable, as evidenced by Chaos (who jumped onto one) and there was a small bookshelf in the cabin, with three books on it. "Looks fine to me. Anything else?" Marr asked.
    "There's a recreation room, too, which I'll show you to in a second. The meals are free, if not exactly delicious, but we get good reviews. You eat in the cabins, and dispose of your trash in this wastepaper basket."

    "Two to a cabin, eh?" Shyss sighed, she hated sharing a room with anypony, it usually resulted in some form of debate. "So who goes with who? I'd suggest Me and Marr, Patient and Ferrum," She turned to Chaos, "Since you're the creepy one you also get to be the lucky one, until somepony new arrives, if that even happens. any objections?"

    "I object to being called 'the creepy one!" objected Chaos.
    Nobody listened to him, because this is Chaos we're talking about.

    "I will be where ever any one needs me I do love studying history in my youthful years my mother would take me to the archives she made sure I was well aware of my kinds history even the one that were restricted for some unknown reason I never found out how or why my mother had access to them either way I loved learning that why I am on this adventure to study another place and what the history behind it" he then turned to face Ferrum "I do no object to the arrangement of the cabins I am sure me and Ferrum would get along fine" he said with a calm voice while facing Ferrum.

    "OK, so that's the plan. Me, Shyss and Patient go to the archives or whatever, and Ferrum and Chaos can go and be sociable." Marr was quite pleased with the plan, as it involved Chaos being out of sight. She was not feeling charitable towards Chaos at the time.
    While all this was going on, Captain Saltwind was looking distinctly puzzled. "Archives? Are you seriously planning to go to the Arcadian Archives? You'll be lucky to even find the subject you're looking for. The place is practically a city on its own. It's outside the city gates on the inland side."

    "Trust me I've been to bigger Archives than Arcadia, but chances are you're right. If Arcadia Archives are as big as you say then it'll be separated into levels, and I have the feeling we all only have the civilian access." Shyss said with a little smile, she had a plan to get at least herself, and maybe Marr, into further reaches of the archives. She could theoretically get Patient further in, but that could prove painful.
    Shyss chuckled to herself as she unloaded her saddlebags into her cabin, she'd relay her plan to Marr once the boat sets sail. She turned back to the others who had joined her on this trip, "I'm going to get myself some rest, I've had a long journey and my entire body feels heavy and sluggish. Somepony wake me when we set sail."

    "Of course Shyss I will have a nice sleep" Patient said then facing the others "So what do you all want to do" he said.

    "As long as you dont go on about history im fine" Ferrum said with a little smile, he never understood history and realises that he probrably never will. he is happy he has Patient as a roommate (or a cabinmate) since they could have a lot to talk about.
    "I like socialising better than looking through archives or whatever you guys are on about. Also I havent really met Chaos much so that should be fun." He says with a smile, he has to keep smiling, its the only way he can get through leaving his family for a few weeks.

    "Ferrum, you are officially my favourite person in the boat at the moment. Although you seem a little too happy for your own good." Chaos said with customary lack of respect. Marr wasn't too pleased and was going to correct him when she noticed something.
    "Hey, where's the Captain gone?" Marr asked, looking up and down the small corridor. Saltwind was nowhere to be seen. He'd probably gone onto the deck to check something, or just decided to leave them be. "I guess there's nothing much to do otherwise. Shyss can go take her rest and every pony else can do whatever. I'm going onto the deck, personally."

    "Im going to stay here and get some shut eye, after the journey from Ponyville to here was tiring" Ferrum lay down and tried to get to sleep, he understands that there shall be people talking but he didnt mind, he didnt really want to get some sleep, he just wanted to rest for a while. However after 5 minutes he becomes restless and climbs out of bed.
    "I cant get sleep, im going to the deck with Marr" Ferrum stands up and starts walking towards the deck.

    Shyss cleared a small space between the two cots in her cabin and then sat down in the very center of the room, placing her Rift Grimoire on the floor in front of her. She opened the book to page one-sixty-four and started to read out the incantation inscribed there. It was all written in a dead language, one that nopony could actually read or understand, however those who have trained to tap into the Rift can, with the help of Rift Magics, read the dead language, without understanding it, and still cast complex Rift spells.
    This particular spell was relatively simple, more importantly, it wasn't very taxing. The only thing this spell required was time, and she had the best part of three hours before the ship set sail, and before Patient came to get her. What she was casting was a simple pathfinding spell, which should allow her small and vague glimpses into the future. Most of the information she receives won't mean much to her, but she felt the need to cast it because she had a bad feeling about this endeavour.
    As the incantation drew to a close her horn lit up with purple energy, and soon it engulfed the entire cabin sending out a magical shockwave, which might have been noticed by nearby unicorns, providing they are adept at sensing magical energy, or simply just if they were paying attention. Shyss didn't really care if anypony noticed it, but she didn't want to raise too much suspicion.
    It didn't take long for the room to be filled with a sufficient amount of energy for her transportation. She was grateful for the fact the door only swings inwards, it meant the magical energies that filled her room held it shut, preventing whoever it was on the other side, who was currently pressing themselves against the door with a lot of force, from getting in.
    Shyss soon felt her spiritual self become separated from her physical embodiment and then get pulled into the vast emptiness of the Rift. She knew she didn't have long, Marr or somepony else was bound to break the door down very soon. She followed the path that she had laid down before herself as she traversed possible the most dangerous part of the Rift, but it was a part Shyss was used to, and a part she understood, and therefore it wasn't as dangerous to her as it would be for less experienced Rift Walkers.
    As she walked she saw images flash before her eyes, first was the Arcadian Archives, secondly was Marr, dressed in a Draquolian Robe, thirdly was glowing crystals, and finally came a waterfall. She could feel something strange about this waterfall, the whole air around it seemed to be vibrating. Then she heard a loud smash, and was suddenly dragged out of the Rift and placed back into her own body. She turned around to see who had broken through the door, but collapsed and fell into a fitful sleep, before she could make anypony out.

    Ferrum walks across the deck to Marr and noticed she was watching the horizon, he couldnt blame her though it did look nice. Ferrum stood next to Marr and leant on the side.
    "So, whats up with Chaos? Part of your family or a close friend?" He wasnt expecting somepony like Chaos to be hanging around with Marr, especially when it looked like Marr could only just tolerate her.

    "Chaos is... a friend. I honestly can't say why, other than I kept having this feeling I'd seen him somewhere before. He's a nice guy, just a little, well, inept." Marr sighed. "It's beautiful, isn't it? The horizon, I mean." The sun had only risen an hour ago and red streaks still mottled the sky. A few hazy shapes indicated islands. "I've always liked the sea and the sky more than the land. I remember when I used to go down to the beach sometimes, and just listen to the waves. Do you like the- what is that?" Marr felt a slight pressure in her head, which was crescendoing into a crushing pain.
    "Can't you feel that?" Ferrum shook his head, obviously mystified. Marr knew that such a feeling was caused by a huge influx of magic in the near vicinity, and by concentrating despite the pain, the magic originated from below decks, near the cabins. "Come with me, Ferrum. I've got a bad feeling about this." Walking down below decks, Marr walked towards the cabins she had been near only a few minutes ago. As she neared her and Shyss' cabin, the pain reached its peak, forcing an incoherent grunt of pain from her despite having felt much worse in her time.
    Marr pushed against the door, which gave a fraction of an inch, but appeared to be sealed somehow. "Help me with this, would you?" asked Marr through gritted teeth. Throwing herself against the door, with Ferrum and presumably either Patient or Chaos following soon after, she pushed until her legs threatened to buckle, when suddenly all the resistance, as well as the pain in her head, stopped and she tumbled, along with her helpers, into the room, where Shyss was sprawled unconscious. "Anybody know what do do with her? Looks like she's fainted from overexertion."

    Patient came rushing up to them "What happen!" he said to Ferrum trying to help out and trying to remain calm as much as possible just like his mother and father had done in these cases.

    "I dont know, me and Marr were just on the deck and she had a bad feeling, we opened the door and saw Shyss unconscious, by the looks of things she hasnt just tripped and fell, this is what her magic has done to her. However all things considered it might be her way to get to sleep easy." Ferrum runs to Shyss and checks to see if she is ok. He put his ear to her mouth.
    "Well she is breathing, thats a good sign. You guys have to remember that she is a very weak unicorn with a lot of power, at the moment she is unconscious so all we can do is wait for her to regain consciousness and see how she goes from there, but all I can suggest for now is to leave her alone and let her rest on the bed. But dont worry guys, she cant hear you, she cant wake up". Ferrum is glad that he knows how to deal with situations like this its something one might find common at a blacksmiths

    "Okay I agree but I might suggest we take turn to watch over them both just an case anything goes wrong in their recovery and we should get a wet cloth to place on their foreheads to keep their temperature cool" Patient suggest to him as he was helping him with them both.

    "There's an idea, Patient. Chaos, go get a wet cloth." Chaos ran off, presumably to find a cloth. Marr was thoroughly pleased that Shyss was not dead. "Better get her onto a bed, then. Ferrum, you might need to help me with this, being as strong as you are." Marr tried lifting Shyss' limp form onto the mattress, and thankfully Shyss was light enough that this went without any trouble. "That's about all we can do until Chaos comes back with the cloth."

    Ferrum helps to lift Shyss and place her body on a bed , she was very light actually which helped a lot.
    "Well... im going to lay my fat head down for now, not because im going sleep but because im lazy" Everypony laughed or at least chuckled to what Ferr said. He was glad that he came with this group of friends,
    "So, anypony got and stories to tell or somthing, we have a long boat ride to arcadia, and we have no form of entertainment. No scary stories? Or stories about the past that made you laugh?" Ferrum hated boats and is trying to pass the time quicker.
