Asteria heads out from the House in the early morning and walks through the plains, clad in her usual mithral armor. Once she arrives in the Daggerhills, she can be seen setting up a tent, a camp fire and setting up a small perimeter for security reasons. Once she finishes with that, she slips into the tent and changes into her riding clothes.

As the sun rises in the sweltering heat, she slowly steps out of her tent and smiles. Her brown eyes wander the steppes of the Dagger Hills, stopping when she sees the other tents.

She wanders towards the other camp fire set up there and before Teslia and Tubbs rise for the morning, the warrioress cooks them breaskfast on the campfire: a simple meal of meat, cheese and bread. She also tends to the horses, feeding and watering them before grooming them.

If anyone else wanders by the Dagger Hills and takes notice of her and the camp, her behavior with the horses is quite loving, kind and gentle. She whispers into their ears as she grooms and rubs them down. She nuzzles one mare in particular and smiles to the creature. She seems to be having a whole conversation with the mare...even if a bit...one-sided.

"Wonder if they will let me name ya...Hellsbane! What'cha think? Oh, I got dumped yesterday...eh, it wasn't fun. I think I might be goin' through a mid-life crisis..."

She goes on talking to the creature until the sun completely rises in the morning.

Hearing that the undead army marches through the Daggerhills, Asteria immediately takes up arms in the early morning and fights her away across the Shadowdale plains. She heads into the Daggerhills to warn Teslia and Tubbs about the incoming undead army. The warrioress may seem in an absolute panic, clearly worried for their well being and also asks several others to help scout around for the two, and also asks them to keep an eye out for the mare that she's grown so fond of.

"Warrioress,"  Tubbs thundering voice calls as he jumps from an arriving wagon.  "Calm yourself.  You will find your battle lies elsewhere."

Teslia's long, flowing hair settles as her proud mount prances high. It's jet black, silky main has been braided with ivory beads, it's tail tightly braided the same. The almond coat shines brightly as the mighty woman sits atop, proudly surrounded in carefully stitched hide armor and a towering sword upon her back.  

She scans the horizon as Tubbs unstraps his own jet black horse from the wagon, it's mighty clydesdale feet beating the ground, and mounts it.  He holds a hand down to Asteria and looks to her with a stern look.  "You ride with me."

As she hears the thundering voice echo across the desert sands, Asteria straightens and sighs in relief. She turns towards the arriving wagon and smiles warmly, relaxing as she replies to the familiar voice of Tubbs. "As ya say! Good ta hear, though." Then, murmurs to herself. "Tempus knows I have enough battles ta fight as it is."

As Asteria spots Teslia on her mount, she smiles and waves to the other woman. She admires the horse for a moment and chuckles to herself as she sees the horse's mane and tail have been braided. She also seems relieved that the young woman carries a sword with her and she greets her warmly before turning her attention back to Tubbs.

She watches where Teslia's eyes scan the desert horizon, nodding to herself. Her brown eyes seem to calm as she turns to watch Tubbs mount the large, proud black clyesdale. She smiles wide, watching the creature and looking up at its rider. "Gladly." She takes the pro-offered hand and swings her legs up and around the large beast to mount up behind the man.

He pulls her up behind him, her legs gripping the horse's powerful, bare back.  It’s heart beats like a war drum, it’s coat black as darkest night.  The horse’s head is held high, a loose loop of reigns around the animal’s snout with no bit.  “You have much to learn, Running Rabbit,” he says to Asteria over his shoulder.  He bellows across the camp, “Caravan, disperse!  We meet the next crescent moon!”  

The small encampment bursts into a flurry of action, tents breaking down, loud voices calling, wagons being hitched.  Teslia raises a hand and points to a cloud forming in the distance, her horse lets out a nervous neigh.  Tubs turns quickly towards where she points, his face grows grim.  “We ride west,” he says to the three.  Placing two fingers in his mouth, a piercing whistle cuts through the bustle, the two horses Asteria had rescued raise their heads.  Tubbs gives his mount a subtle squeeze with his legs, it reacts.  Raising it’s front legs high and kicking.  It’s hooves scatter the sands as they fall, Tubbs, Asteria, Teslia and all their mounts tear off at a full gallop.

The wind flies through Asteria’s hair, the powerful animal moves and breathes beneath her, responding to Tubbs every move.  He leans forward and holds her arm around his waist as the sands blur with their speed.

Asteria grips the horse's sides with her legs and she grins, clearly never have ridden a horse bareback before. She lays her hand on the horse's flank, closing her eyes as she feels the creature's heart beat march to wardrums. She opens them and observes the bit and bridle Tubbs uses on his mount. Her brow furrows for a moment, clearly impressed. "I guess I do." She admits. "Although I never thought of m'self as a rabbit." She snickers. She startles a bit as Tubbs shouts orders to his caravan.

In puzzlement and yet, admiration, she watches the whole caravan pack up and move out. She watches the mobile city of tents collapse and wagons pulling out. As she hears Teslia's mount neigh, she lifts her head and frowns when the woman points to the rising cloud. "Scorpions." She nods to Tubbs and glances to the west, hoping there are no dangers in that direction. Asteria glances to her rescued horses, seeming amazed as they respond solely to the whistle. As they tear off at a full gallop, she holds onto Tubbs for dear life in fear of falling off.

Still, she can't help but let out a joyful laugh as they speed across the desert. But, she still pays close attention at how Tubbs controls the horse without a bit and observes when he uses a tight or loose reign. But, for a moment, it's obvious she loses herself in the feel of freedom and wind whipping around her. She watches the powerful hooves kick up sand and dirt, thundering across the earth. She was definitely meant for this.
