Shae smiled a bitter, rueful smile as he looked, at last, upon the face of the man that killed his mother. strange, I never thought he would look so... so normal. Natural even. Like anyone you would meet in a tavern. I wonder if I should continue on this mission to slay him... I wonder if he’s just a normal person who accidentally got embroiled in circumstances beyond his control? He crossed the laboratory, and as his eyes left the scrying pool the image vanished, and became again, a clear cool dish of water. His steps ceased at the altar of The Moonlight Elves, in the northern corner of the room.

“Pan?” Shae summoned his Moonlighter, needing a moment of divine inspiration. “Pan? I need your help.” Wordlessly Pan appeared in a puff of blue smoke. His silver hair swirled about his body and his eyes glowed a cool, transparent blue. “Shae, my friend, how nice to see you again. What do you need?”

“I have found the man that kill Ashevra. His name I do not yet know, but his face...” Shae again summoned the image in the pool. “His face is somehow familiar to me... as if I knew him in another life...”

“Indeed you did. And you shall know him in many more. To find him in this life, though, you must go to the Basted Bugbear Inn, here in Palanthas. There shall you know him.”

Shae whirled and disappeared out the door, into the cold night.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Basted Bugbear

The sign hung rusty on an old pike, squealing crazily in the winter torrent. As Shae entered the premises the patrons silenced, noting his black, swirling robes and the pendant of Chaos that graced his throat.

“Can I... be of any help to yer, magus?” The innkeep inquired nervously.

“Nay, good fellow. I am here seeking one whose face is of this likeness...”

Shae’s arm twitched and the face seen in the scrying pool appeared to hang in the tense silence of the Inn. As the colours solidified the collective patronage of the Inn gasped...

((OOC- why did they gasp? I leave it up to you to answer that question...))


"So what do you do for a living sir?"
"Uh, I like eggs."
"Eggs eh?"
"Eggs."
"Is that your full answer?"
"Yes. Eggs!"

A girl with black hair and blacker eyes shrunk into her seat, instantly knowing the face. Trying not to whimper too loudly she glanced about, certain she was not the only one... This man was a regular to the Inn...Murders are like peanuts. You just cant stop at one. Well I cant anyway!

The dark robed figure sat in the back of the room. As the other magus walked in he slunk even further into the back of his robes, so as not to be noticed. He despised his white robed brethern and didn't think to much more of the red robed. But he associated with them when he had to. but he avoided the black robes as much as possible. They looked out for them selves, and somtimes that ment getting in his way. and he did not enjoy that to any degree.

He watched closely as the other mage made what he wanted known. Simon couldn't beleive it. He was going to get himself into trouble poking around too much. But it was none of his concern. He sat back and watched what was to happen.

Richard strode into the BugBear tavern. He loosened his magic sword. (Some of you know the history about my char. from other threads so i shall not go in depth with it.) He strode up and sat down on a bar stool.

" I'll just take a mug of ale." He said taking off his cloak. Richard glanced around the room and noticed two mages. Interesting patrons tonight......"Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Shae smiled as noticed the girl shrink back.

“You there, girl, what do you have to say?”

As she shrunk away further he frowned.

“I know nothing.” She simpered. “I am innocent... knowledgeless...”

Shae grabbed her roughly by the arm. “You will tell me or you will experience the worst pain you have ever known.”

He dragged her to the bar and slammed her head against the smooth wood. She screamed. "Get him off me!"

Simon made a quick movment with his hand and the man that was harasing the woman at the bar was stopped short. His arms and legs were powerless.

That should slow him down a bit. Simon thought to himself.I've walked into the fires of Hate, stared into the eyes of Pain, fought off

Am'rahil (Amra for short) turned as the man's hold upon her was released. "Oh, thank you! May I ask your name, Savior?"

Simon looked at the woman, and nodded from under his hood.

Shae broke away from the spell and strode to the two.

“What business have you to interfere in this? The girl has some information. I need it. It is a fair transaction. Bugger off.”

With that he tried to backhand Simon. His hand froze in mid air.

“Let me go, Damn you!” Shae tugged at his arm, to little avail.

Simon laughed quitly.

" That is the wrong way to ask for information. You should do it more plesently next time. You will get better results. Now i suggest you bugger off, before i lose my temper."

Simon released the magical hold. But kept a imobility spell ready in his mind. I've walked into the fires of Hate, stared into the eyes of Pain, fought off

Amra smiled, relieved. Then she turned to Shae.

"I have no information for you. Leave me be."

With that she turned back to Simon.

"Take me away... please. He scares me."

She batted her long black lashes and a little tear budded in the corner of one eye.

"Please."Murders are like peanuts. You just cant stop at one. Well I cant anyway!

Shae’s arm twitched and the face seen in the scrying pool appeared to hang in the tense silence of the Inn. As the colours solidified the collective patronage of the Inn gasped...

((OOC- why did they gasp? I leave it up to you to answer that question...))


OOC: And so, I appear to answer this question.

IC:

"That face... IT'S HIM!!!" One of the patrons cried.

Shae frowned. "Who?"

"That... that loudmouthed, stinkin'... what's his name again? Fastfire? Quickflame?" The innkeep frowned.

"Swiftfire. Eliar Swiftfire."

All heads turned towards the entrance when they heard the voice. Everyone gasped in unison. Except for the heroically heroic Shae, who looked grimly at the newcomer.

"Hey, why gimme this sorta reaction, y'all? Don't you miss me?" The spiky-haired mage grinned.

"GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!" The innkeep yelled in panic. Most others echoed the same thing.

"Why? I'm here to sing! And I'm singing it for free!! Ya know where have I been during the past few days? Ripping off... I mean, WRITING a new song to share with y'all!!!" Eliar said in exasperation.

"Oh, my virgin ears." An elf maid shrieked, before falling unconscious.

"That's rude." Eliar frowned. Looking a little hurt. "Ha! I never contradict myself, actually."

Straea
05/29/2003 1:34 PM

Yet another stranger appeared, almost right behind Eliar. This one was decidely female, with huge...uh, eyes and firm....arms. She flung her shoulder length red hair out from around her face. Straea had arrived, to make her mark on society.
"Hey! I think we could all use a nice tall mug of ale, and a good song! I think I heard this gentleman," here she choked back a laugh, "say that he had, er, written a good one recently. Let's hear it!"
She made her way over to a table, sat down, and looked at the fallen elf maide.
"Hey, if she's tired, then maybe she should go to bed!"Oh, I'm sorry, is this yours? You must have dropped it. You know, it's a good thing I found it for you. Here you go.

"Aha! Great to see this beautiful lady here who ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDS that I'm about to sing something so wonderfully wonderful here that it'll end up being in the pages of history. More ironically, this song's from me, a non-Krynnish! Cool huh?"

"That guy's crazy." A man nearby said.

"Uh huh." A minotaur agreed.

"And lemme begin, with my infamous song first!!!" Eliar looked up at the ceiling and sang in a horrifyingly horrifying voice that sounded like a thousand of frogs croaking.

'Clear blue sky,
Make me wanna die,
Grab some pie,
Before I say goodbye!'

Eliar paused for dramatic effect, expecting everyone there to give him a standing ovation.

"SEE? I RULE, MAN! Now, here's my great song, I call it 'ELIAR SWIFTFIRE THE GREAT ver.25225 (the Eliar remix)'!!" "Ha! I never contradict myself, actually."

Straea
06/04/2003 11:20 AM

Straea wiggled her pinky finger in right ear, grinning broadly. Then she pulled out a green rose from somewhere in her clothing and threw it at Eliar.
"Wonderful song, although your singing voice does leave much to be desired."

"She's just as crazy as that guy is," said a voice behind her.

Straea tilted back in her chair, and looked for the voice's owner.
"Maybe I am, maybe I'm not....you'll never know!"

And with that she toppled over in her chair, having leaned over a bit too far, and landed with a loud THUD on the floor.

"Anyone got a band-aid?"Oh, I'm sorry, is this yours? You must have dropped it. You know, it's a good thing I found it for you. Here you go.

eswiftfire
06/05/2003 9:43 AM

"Hah! Here you are, my dear!" Eliar said, happily giving Straea his pink band-aid.

"ENOUGH OF THIS MADNESS!" Shae, who shall not be mistaken as Straea, and was supposedly the 'hero' of this thread, roared in a heroic manner seen only from heroic heroes with a score to settle. 'YOU! YOU MURDERED MY MOTHER!!!"

"Who? Me?" Eliar looked blankly.

"Yes, you!" Shae drew his enchanted sword he had taken from some generic dragon's cave and lunged towards Eliar.

"Oh my, I must be the bad guy again? Oh well." The spiky-haired mage waved. The enchanted sword, which might also be a legendary one, melted immediately."Ha! I never contradict myself, actually."

The elfmaid awoke from her (feigned) faint once she realized that none of the gorgeous males in the room were paying any attention to her. She has deeply hurt. Especially when she heard the newcomer with the spiky hair refer to that hoochie mama with the red hair as "this beautiful lady." It hurt her tragically beautiful heart.

Dardiosnvuidstajkdcaha Hoifhuiviheuhr Unprononsableelfinnaame stood up in a huff. She then strolled over towards the action, hoping to a find a new cause to faint into the arms of a nearby male...preferably human or elven, she thought, seeing a nearby minotaur give her a lecherous look.

OOC: Yes, validating my membership in Thread Enders Inc. :D"Of course you're dying. We're all dying. Where the devil else do you think we're headed?"

Catch-22

06/09/2003 2:40 AM

"Hey! The Elvish babe is awake!" Eliar pointed at Dardiosnvuidstajkdcaha Hoifhuiviheuhr Unprononsableelfinnaame. "Yo, baby, I always have a thing for Elvish chicks, in fact..." He took out a piece of paper from his pocket. It was a list:

Top Ten Things I want to do before I die

1) Blow up the world (Done repeatedly...)

2) Host a talk show (Done.)

He looked through the list until he reached no. 10...

10) Threesome with Kagonesti twins.

"Oh wait... there's only one elf here. Nah, forget it then." Shrugging, he placed the list back into his pocket.

Shae, being the heroic, angst-ridden bastard he was, lunged forward and punched Eliar in the face hard when the spiky-haired mage was still distracted.

"Ouch." Eliar answered wittily being losing consciousness."Ha! I never contradict myself, actually."

Straea
06/09/2003 9:56 AM

Straea picked herself up off the floor and put the pink band-aid on her bump. She smiled as the boo-boo disappeared. Then she looked at Shae, standing over Eliar's crumpled form.

"Hey, what are you going to do to him?" she inquired loudly.

"Not that it's any of your business," the jerk snarled, "but I'm going to kill him."

"That's not very nice," the red-haired mage replied, frowning. She pointed a finger at the nasty hero and shouted, "IMOBULIS!"

Nothing happened. Straea shrugged and grinned again.

"Funny, it worked for those Harry Pothead kids...."Oh, I'm sorry, is this yours? You must have dropped it. You know, it's a good thing I found it for you. Here you go.

07/04/2003 8:48 AM

Harry Potter flung the door open and stepped into the inn. "Did someone mention my name? I'm going to sue your butt off!" He whined, pointing at Straea. "No chance in hell I'm going to let someone from a forum dedicated to some non-too-famous fantasy series defile my name! I'm Harry Potter, damn it!"

Shae grunted. "I don't know what in the Abyss are you talking about, child. I am here to avenge the death of my mother!"

The world famous bespectacled mage walked towards Shae, took out a hardcover copy of the Order of the Phoenix and slammed him on the face, hard.

Shae crumpled onto the floor. Groaning.

"DON'T INTERRUPT ME!" Harry Potter shrieked, giving Shae a kick in the ribs.

"YEAH! DON'T INTERRUPT HARRY!!!"

A large portal opened, thousands of self-proclaimed Harry Potter fans (mostly children) swarmed out, they righteously tore Shae into pieces.

The sky turned dark...

As it started raining Harry Potter books... mostly hardcover ones.

In the end, Ansalon was buried by gazillions of Potter books and was conquered by Harry Potter and his maniacal fans.

The End
