Those were the warning words given by Pedagogue Vi’van himself. This small group of clerics heeded the words of the Pedagogue, slipping away on their dragons under the guise they were fetching more water to ensure the buildings were fully doused. In reality, they gathered those they knew they needed to. A few of the clerics had their dragons send private messages to the dragons of a couple of other would-be-defectors. Those that didn’t truly support of follow the Leadership anymore, but had resided in the Dragon Ward so far. A few took the chance, but some were too afraid to flee. So the group remained small, around a mere five dragonriders in all, but it made it easy for them to slip away without notice among the chaos of the aftermath of the attack on the ward.
A few betweened to a rendevous point, while others slipped into the other wards to gather friends and families. Some were quick to leave, already looking for a means before, while others had to be convinced that a war was coming. Some went, and some stayed behind, but the riders took with them those that would come, meeting with their comrades at their meeting point. It took a several days, the riders camping at their private place outside of Walled reach, gathering up those that would come with them. After over a sevenday though, it was time to move on. They couldn’t hide out in the wilds forever, and Vi’van had told them where to go.
Their group didn’t grow larger than what their greens and blues could carry, with no one carrying with them much more than themselves and just a few personal effects they could take quickly. The dragons were loaded with their passengers, and then with a signal, they rose up and jumped between.
Moments later, New Atricis Weyr opened up beneath them, and a bugle from the watchdragon alerted the Weyr to their presence, and also alerted the Walled riders that they were recognized. Down, N’iel and Viridith led the group, landing them in the Weyr Yard, the most neutral area of the Weyr, so as not to be seen as a threat, just to be safe.
”We come seeking refuge,” N’iel called out to those that gathered to see what was going on. Viridith called out similarly as well.
”May we please speak with your leaders to request asylum?”
