Seth and Ayla arrived at the North Tower. He was expecting to find the sibling careers. With one hand on his weapon, and the other holding up a Jabberjay.
Seth spoke loudly to the Jabberjay for all to hear.
“Requesting backup! Arnie, Ox, Derrick, Rosa, Alicia, Olive, the Careers and Tristan Danio are in North Tower Level 4. Use the hovercraft remotes you all bought and get here as soon as you can.”
Seth sent the jabberjay flying out the window to relay the message. He then addressed the Careers.
“We don’t need a bloodbath here, Schuhmachers. We know what you must have done to Mave and Jessie and Rosie. But there’s eight of us and we’re all armed and well-equipped. If you try anything you will be utterly destroyed. And as you know, Ayla and I are the best fighters in these Games. So if you want to live I suggest you stand down and we can talk this through.”
“Tristan, I don’t know what plans or allegiances you have, but I highly recommend staying out of this.”

Stepping out of the hovercraft, Tristan took in the already tense situation before him. Leaning back against the craft's metallic frame he smiled at Seth.
"I've got no nets in this lake, Judkins. You and Farrow seem to be searching for those two; though from what I've seen it'll take more than a while before the rest of your crew arrives."
Tristan scratched his right arm where a series of fishhooks formed a gnarled tangle.
"Whoever's alive when you're all finished, try not to be too hurt! Gonna need your help to get farther up, and I'm not looking forward to carrying anyone."
Hey, Schuhmachers! This is our only chance to thin out their giant group before they get here, and I'm no fool. Once they take you two down, I'm in the same net! Throw the first punch, and I'll back you up.
Hey, Judkins and Farrow! I'm hurt bad, those two will tear me apart like they did to the others. Hit them first and I'll join the fray to take them down quickly.

Ayla stepped out of her hovercraft. She saw Seth and Tristan. She turned to Seth and smacked his arm "Damn it Seth! I thought you were going to drown in the lava. You barely made it onto that hovercraft." She then turned to Tristan "Hey, good to see you. Don't worry, you're not our concern! Where did you come from, and what was it like there? And oh my god, what happened to your arm?!"
She looked around for the careers, but she couldn't see them. "Seth, how do you know that they're here?"
"Don't worry Tristan, we've got your back on this one, sounds like a plan!"

"Are you kidding me?" Anton strode towards the group. "It's been hard enough for me and Ingrid to gather food and take care of each other. And it's not my responsibility to 'carry anyone' through these games." He snarled and shot an eye at Tristan and then returned his attention to Seth. "It's not my fault they didn't know what they were getting into when they volunteered."
Anton took a couple steps back towards Ingrid and then called back. "Don't get me wrong, it's a nice show of muscle. But...really?" He gave a short laugh. "I know your whole group got separated but," he gestured widely towards the direction his jabberjay flew, "that jabberjay is only flying to one place. Not to mention spending all your sponsors' money on hovercrafts?" Anton laughed again. "I'm sorry, but this is the Hunger Games. You're all not gonna fly out of here together forever and love each other in peace." Anton paused, staring at Seth and Alya in confusion until he sputtered, "But, whatever. That's not my problem. You guys go do what you want. I, unfortunately, now have to prepare for your 'bloodthirsty' team mates with my sister. Thanks for that."
Anton gave a bow and slapped Ingrid on the shoulder. "Come on, we have to get food for today."
Anton flashed small grin and a wink at Tristan when he heard his whisper. "It'll be at the last minute."

Seth’s Jabberjay returned and reported back on the alliance’s conversation. Seth whispered the message to Ayla.
“Hey Ayla. The jabberjay told me Derrick and Rosa are on their way now but I told them to keep quiet until either the careers attack or the day is about to end. There's no sense in picking a fight so don’t strike unless provoked, in which case all four of us will take them down. Also, don't fight the Hog.”
Seth whispered more quietly now. “Ayla, I said that just to scare them. I’m hoping they heard that and it will keep them from striking first. I don’t know if anyone is actually coming. Ox and Arnie are debating if they should risk it, but we might be on our own. I scared off the quail hoping that they might not have enough food to survive or bribe the hog muttation. This will force them to use up their actions to kill the hog. Save your energy until the end of the day. We can take them out if they spend a couple of their actions. But if they don’t kill the hog I think we can afford to bribe it. It's impossible for me to run from it.”
Cal Mensen: I believe you edit the post. You can either rewhisper to everyone (too much work), or copy and paste the whispers into public text. I'd imagine you'd want to give some sort of symbol or notation that they were once whispers.

Cal Mensen: Same here, part of me wants to allocate some time aside to building a new one in a different setting. It'd be easier to devote time to if there's a shard interest.
