    (another lil Doriax ficlet, this one has spoilers for episode 6)

    Dorian felt like the world was spinning, he was very low on health and his head felt light as he stumbled over to Dariax before slouching against a wall, holding his side as he bled out from a wound left by the beast.

    Dariax immediately came to Dorian’s defense, blocking with his body and telling the beasts to attack him instead. Dorian, of course, was barely hearing this through the blood pumping through his ears, his clothes were stained red as the large gash in his side pulsed under the futile pressure of his hand.

    He felt the world go dark, and in a moment where the beast's attention turned to Orym, Dariax turned and placed his hand over Dorian’s on his wound, placing the other on his shoulder. Dorian felt his life being restored as the healing magic coursed throughout his body.

    He took a deep breath as he stood upright again and looked at Dariax with earnest gratitude, “thank you,” he whispered, still trying to regain his voice.

    “Don’t mention it,” Dariax whispered back sweetly before turning to blast the beast with a Sacred Flame, standing in his defensive position before Dorian once again.

    Dorian felt his face flush, Dariax might view Dorian as the leader, but Dorian saw Dariax as his hero. He was always so strong and protective of others, making sure that- above all else- they were safe. His loyalty was unmatched by anyone Dorian had ever met. He heard Dariax hit the beast, announcing he’d set its genitals on fire with a deep giggle, and Dorian took a moment to wonder why he found that as endearing as he did.

    But there would be time to question these emotions later, to wonder why Dariax’s sweet voice made him feel butterflies in his stomach, to wonder why Dariax’s hand over his made his heartbeat faster, and why his breath caught in his throat as Dariax looked intensely into his eyes as he healed him. But right now, they were being attacked by a multi-headed dog, and they really needed to focus on that right now.

    Finally starting to catch up with Exandria Unlimited (wanted there to be more episodes out before I watched more). I’m at the start of episode 2. It makes way more sense why Liam’s character would go to the Fire Ashari now... I was confused at the end of the first episode. Like how are a bunch of level 2 characters gonna get all the way to Vasselheim?? But it totally makes sense for them to have an outpost to watch over the weird elemental stuff left over by Thordak in Emon.

    Dropping these here to help me keep track of the EXU through-lines. Honestly not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but me.

    Thordak/ Plane of Fire Connections:

    Poska found this group of adventurers and sent them to the harbor, where they found a boat from Issylra. Pyrah is in Issylra, and that’s where the portal is that Thordak used when he entered Emon in Campaign 1. Orym’s last memory before a week-long gap, was standing at the edge of Thordak’s Crater, seeing footprints leading from there to the Scar of the Cinderking. We know that a contingent of Ashari at Thordak’s Crater were all but wiped out in a coordinated attack at the Crater around the same time. And we know the heightened elemental energy from Thordak’s influence was getting worse for months leading up to that. Then someone, presumably Poska, rode past the group the night they fled Emon. We can assume that person went to the Scar of the Cinderking, and channeled that energy to create the Oh No Plateau using a rune from Niirdal-Poc.

    Other possible connections:

    In Campaign 1, Raishan devised a way to free Thordak on the Celestial Solstice and ended up releasing him at Winter’s Crest. Lolth, speaking to Dorian, said that she needed a champion, wanted Poska, but didn’t have time for Poska to catch up. It could be that another one of these cosmic events is approaching, and Lolth has plans to use it to let something through from another plane.

    Thordak's essence left an unusually large impact on the Material Plane because of the Soul Anchor attached to him by Allura & co., which was made from the heart of a Primordial Titan of Flame. The Runes of Niirdal-Poc are "older than the gods." The primary beings we know of from that time are, again, Primordial Titans.

    Now, the split between the Prime Deities and the Betrayer Gods happened, because when the Primordial Titans attacked the newly created mortals, the Betrayer Gods sided with the Primordials. Given all this, it’s possible that Lolth and a Primordial from the Plane of Fire are working together.

    We also know that Future!Fearne was sent by Lady Elmenore the Unforgiving High Warqueen of the Burning Vale, another possible fiery ally of Lloth.

    Time and Darkness:

    When Fearne tries to think back about the past week, she has a glimmer of insight that time gets weird in the Feywild. Around the Feywild gate, we see time get weird as bread aged from fresh to stale to decomposing in moments, Opal’s sneeze froze in mid-air, the noon sun and the moon shared the sky. Then, there’s Future!Fearne herself. Who say’s, “I’ve killed you already” to Fearne, but "I've never killed you before. This will be fun" to Fy’ra. Fy’ra, who Dorian saw pulled into darkness in a memory. Fy'ra, who was in a dark place before arriving at the gate. Maybe the same sort of oppressive, unnatural darkness as the interior of the Blightstar, the darkness that swirled and slashed Fearne across the arm. Dark figures who disappeared on the docks, who reappeared outside the warehouse and offered everything inside in exchange for the Circlet. This group was very different than the multitude of ordinary city-folk who were with Poska later. How many groups are after the Crown?

    Am I crazy or was the woman in purple attacking Ted actually Poska? It sounded like her and she's been shown to have interest in powerful objects that she can utilise. Having someone who can give you magic would be a massive boon to whatever her goal is, plus it sounds like Ted is extra special. It could be that the Syngorn pack and Poska are working together for some unknown goal right now. We never got confirmation that the elves were formally affiliated with Syngorn, so who knows what they actually are.

    So, Poska goes to search the planes while Syngorn go after Opal who has Ted within her. They wanted the crown at first but discovered the greater prize in Ted after the elf read Opal's mind. I also think they're interested in gates to different planes, which is why the elves turned up at the gate to the Feywild and the elemental tear in Emon won't close. The new mountain that appeared could be an ancient gateway to the fire plane, which is why it was marked as 'a place of burning' and Mister turned into an elemental. The two parties want to harness the magic from them in some way and maybe Ted is the key as she seems to be between planes. They got all that residium to increase the power from the gates exponentially through some form of ritual or to capture it maybe. That's also why the group were fighting between the planes first time round perhaps. Who knows, but I don't think Syngorn and Poska are separate entities at this point.

    so i’ve been wondering for awhile if exu is in fact going to go beyond the promised eight episodes and honestly based on how aabria framed fy’ra rai’s departure from the group, i feel like that’s almost certainly the case. idk if they wanted to run the first eight to see the response before committing to doing more, or maybe anjali had other commitments and they decided to wait for her to be able to join them full time, or maybe they wanted to wait until they could film live all seated around the same table for once. idk. but i definitely felt like the seeds were being planted in this episode for this to be something more long-running than just this one mini-arc.

    Ok so Orym's definitely a Battle Master (we saw 2 new maneuvers in that chase scene), and Fy'ra Rai seems to be a Way of the Four Elements monk based on some of her combat moves, so does that mean the only subclass we don't know is Dorian's?
