((OOC: I've noticed more newbies, so, anyone under 150 posts, or who just would like to contribute (Dark master? Crimson? (Has he returned yet?) Tolk, Kalia, ect...) I'll have this be a guided game, of course this means brittish humor from Douglas Adams and Cindertanin's constant "This world is lying, I know it hates me!" attitude (in a week I read all the hitchiker books so I'm now briefed in funny stuff!)

I'll be using 2 characters (mwahaha, 2 pawns to toss into the lawnmower, I mean plot...) One, Cindertanin, of course... and two, not Paedon, he died, in my novel... kinda... well anyway uhm... (thinks up a name) Evan Jedrex, half-cousin to Ford Prefect, hitchiker of the galaxy, (Remember to bring your towel)

I'll begin the setting in "The Stuck Pig." A tavern in my novel, it's got a red carpet and features meaty meals, nice name though right? Cindertanin is talking to an oddly dressed man, (Evan)))

"So you're telling me you're from another planet and this one is not whatsoever advanced in any ways." Cindertanin said glareing.

"Well of course it isn't you people don't even bathe." Evan said, a little too loudly, "And believe me it's not hard to notice."

A whirring sound came by as Cindertanin caught an arrow in mid flight over to Evan. "Next time I don't stop it, so mind your tongue." he said.

"Fine, fine, be that way, I'll just keep my nose to myself." Evan said shrugging."With the slightest twitch of my magey hands, I could explode you completely dead. And it would be messy so there! " Black mage, 8-bit Theatre.

I might as well post my character: Kara Lenners, in her early 20's, has dark gold hair and brown eyes, is human. That's all I can think of for now."Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago.

Sorry Ontarys... but I figured it's be good for the new ones.

That setting sounds all right to me. And Kara has no secret powers to speak of, she's fairly normal. Thoguh she does have a mysteriously background... she never speaks about her past. Other than that, I'm ready!"Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago. Then you will realize, as I did, that it does no good. No one hears you, sobbing in the night alone."

OOC: Right...hmm....lets see....who to use......might as well make a new guy.

Ach dammit, had to edit, i never saw your post slyknife, my char was going to be a cleric, ain't no clerics during war of the lance...soo.....white robe mage will have to do i guess. Jalanaulasala, but just call him Jalan. 302 years old, silvanesti elf. Silvery grey eyes and golden blonde hair to his shoulders.

Jalan ran through the forest with the speed and agile footing that was bred into every elf that lived. Blood ran from a cut on his head, running into his eyes, staining his once gleaming white robes. He had nearly spent himself. They had cam out of no-where, fast, strong, putrid smelling and vile.....Draconians. A few magic users and the rest weilding the blade.

He had been travelling back to Silvanost, preferring to ride horse back. They ambushed him, his horse slain. He fought them, mainly the magic using bozaks(not sure if it was them that used magic), killing one of them, but he was overpowered and so made a dash for it. Casting a haste spell to quicken his steps.

He reached a road, no forest covered the other side. He would have to make a stand here. Hatred filled his veins. Hatred for the vile and corrupted spawn of the Dark Queen. They emerged from the trees. They leered at him....but no magic users. Good he thought, these shouldn't pose a big problem. Leaping into the air, he chanted, never faltering, and rained firey lightning down upon them, burning, charring, scorching, cracking, splicing.....more came, and in return, more magical lightning, fire, wind and ice.

Eventaully only he stood, dripping with blood and spit. Covered in green blood spilt by him, mixing with dirt. Tears filled his eyes. Such dark times, would they ever see the light again. Pain racked him from behind. The mages, he had been a fool to believe they had gone. He fell to his knees and then his belly, lying unconscious in a pool of his and the draconians blood. His last image was an ugly, snarling reptilian head leaning over him, then all was black. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,
til the tallow be dust and death's teeth gnash
this one be mine.....

OOC: Um..yes there where clerics in the War of the Lance...um...does GoldMoon ring a bell...they where there...just very few in number..

A silver bolt tore through the Draconian's head...the gleaming shaft covered in Blood. The Creature fell without a sound. two more bolts followed the first...each finding their mark with ease. Kistalansla readied her crossbow, another silver bolt readied to fly. She turned, and finding no other targets, lept down from the tree that she was hidden in.

Raised by the Kagonesti, Kista was silent as she walked to the fallen silvanesti mage. She rested her hand on his chest, feeling for the life within him...He was alive...but barely. She whistled, and a large grey wolf trotted out of the brush. the wolf's head reached Kista's hip, and she smiled warmly at the creature.

you wish to walk within him healer? Kista stared at the wolf, and nodded, her lavender eyes reflected the Wolf's yellow ones. Yes Jaren...he needs help she sent back. Jaren licked her hand and whined.

Then walk with me healer.... Kista's eyes locked with the wolf's, and her mind spun dizzily to the left, and dropped down. She could see the man's wounds from the inside out..and the sight chilled her even as the wolf fed her his strength. There was little time...hurry... She could almost see the words burned into the flesh as she worked. She directed the flow of plasma to the slashes, pulled together the platelets and antibodies...She pulled the skin into cleaner lines, the flesh knitted and smoothed.

Jaren pulled at her...but it had only been mere minutes...and she resisted strongly...she had to help this man...there was so much to do...the wounds where still ragged...not completely healed....but the Grey shadow gathered force, and snapped at her, breaking her hold on the internal world and yanking her back. there was a tearing sensation, and a shocking sense with loss of dimension, of depth...and then the roaring in her ears separated into sounds.

Jaren barked, his yellow eyes bright. Kista's eyes seemed to hold a yellow cast to them for a moment before it faded. "Thank you Jaren...You honor me..." She sat back, and tore into one of her travel packs of food...she would eat quickly then gather materials for a fire...and wait for the mage to waken.When you hear Temptation call-

IC: Jalan stirred. He felt groggy, his head pounded without relent, he could smell an animal nearby. He shot up, eyes wide, the Bozak mages.....were....gone. In their place, a woman stood, beautiful, graceful. The beast was beside her. His head spun, he got up too fast and fell back down, grabbing his aching head.

"W...who are you?" The words to a spell faded, he had no strength to cast even the simplest of magicks. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

OCC: Oaky can I be a human barbarian who was raised up near Ice wall?

Coldfire stepped through the forest very quickly almost to the point of a sprint he had seen some Draconian Tracks and was sure that there were to many for him alone to fight off. He also saw other tracks light quick ones. He figured the Draconians must have been chasing someone. Then he saw a fire quickly he moved out of sight. Coldfire slowly came into view and saw an elven white robbed mage lying down covered in a blanket. A very atractive elevn women and her wolf watched over the man.

OCC: Coldfire was born in icewall so he is used to the cold. He has an eagle thats called Swiftwind (the eagle is out scouting). He has red air and blue eyes. He has scruf but know full facial hair. He has big think boots a white short sleaved tunic and has a heavy fur cloak and a light cloak. His favored weapon is the battle axe but he also carries a longbow and a longsword.

"I will slow the Draconians down so you two can get a head start."
Coldfire went back into the forset and began to set up traps and snares. A brown and black eagle came down and landed right next to Coldfire.

"Ah, good your back. Did you see anything?"
The eagle dropped a medolin, it had a five headed dragon on it......

Cindertanin heard comotion a mile from the taven and looked up.

"You see something?" Evan asked.

"No heard it, I'm not entirely human remember?" Cindertanin said standing.

"Not entirely mortal either." Evan said, taking the food with him and throwing a coin on the table as they approached the sound.

Cindertanin's eye's went wide, "I know that wolf..." he said with a smile."With the slightest twitch of my magey hands, I could explode you completely dead. And it would be messy so there! " Black mage, 8-bit Theatre.

OCC: Just forget I said anything Amber.

Coldfire just finished setting the traps and snares, he takes the medalion from Swiftwind and examines it further. It seemed to belong to a cleric or a wizard.

"Grave danger looms ahead of us old friend."
"Braaaak."
"Come we most hurry if we are to catch up......" His sentence was cut of by the sound of a trap going off and a draconian falling into a hole. Coldfire started to run for the cover of some high bush but was stopped by the curved blade of a draconian straight through his left shoulder.

"Ahhhhhhh! Son of a Gully Dwarf." Coldfire bashed the draconian on the head and pulled the blade out with his right hand. He crenged at the stinging pain it brought. Hearing more coming Coldfire started to run but he saw a group of about six draconians and hobgoblins cutting him off.
Coldfire throws the curved blade he stole and it goes straight through a draconians head. He turns and starts to run up to the path. He can hear the suprised screams as the fools are caught by his traps. Swiftwind flies low by his side, "Did you find any place safe Swift?" The eagle flys high and begins to fly toward a tavern.....

"Uuuurgh..." Kara groaned, rubbing her aching head. Easily, she propped herself up onto her elbows, blinking rapidly to clear her misty vision. Darkness surrounded her, the only dim light present being tiny, glowing white spots on the polished smooth black surface on which she lay. When the ringing in her ears ceased, she looked around, wondering sluggishly where she was. Silence blanketed the chamber, a silence that seemed unbroken for millenia. As her eyes adjusted the the darkness, Kara made out a ring of stones surrounding the polished rock lake. No, she corrected herself, it wasn't a chamber. Faint stars sparkled overhead, mirroring the pattern of white points on the black rock lake. Vaguely, Kara realized where she was--she was in Godshome! How did she get here?

Stiffly, Kara got to her feet, and nearly slipped back into a supine position when her feet skidded on the slick surface. Feeling her way for the unseen exit of the Boulder Ring, she sqeezed through. Eventually, she traipsed through the Southeast Past and emerged in Misted Vales, a vale perpetually shrouded in enveloping mist. The tiny drops of the mist tickled her nose, cooled the air. White stretched in all directions, revealing nothing. "How'd I get here in the first place?" Kara thought.

It took her until morning and noon before she found her way outside the Misted Vales."Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago. Then you will realize, as I did, that it does no good. No one hears you, sobbing in the night alone."

((OOC: Uhm, okay, lets just say that Amber talked to some guy in the tavern, and that everyone'll get back, IC for in character OOC for out of, you can use parenthesis colons anything to emphasize the fact of the in and out of character codes. Best way to do this is write in third person, (characters name, he, she ect...) and haver their thoughts like in Dragonlance novels. Good luck ask if this isn't clear))

Cindertanin lept from a tree stabbing a draconian in the back with his ancient dagger. The effect of this was the draconian slowly shriveling up, insread of turning to stone, the dagger of a Demon Assassin drained the life from those who were stabbed by it and put it into a vial at the hilt of the blade, the red accrid fluid is what sustained a demon's life. The others who saw this fled, because though in a group they might have killed him, Demon's have the effect of Dragonfear when they surprise an enemy.

((OOC: Okay basic looks, Cindertanin looks about twenty (used to look 15, but I aged him) he has black spiked hair and is very pale and about 5'10" he's slim, but muscled, like a short elf. His eyes are solid black, because, well, he's a half-demon.

The story behind this is to become one you're hit with a weapon coated in demon's blood, and from that it poisons you and in two minutes you die, Cindertanin when this was done to him h was sitting on a windowsil, in a tower..., he was hit by an arrow and then after a few seconds struggled to pull it out, and then fell, he died after a minute and didn't get the purplish skin and extreemly evil powers, but he makes a nice assassin.

He is cynical, because he was changed as a child and never got to have a chance to live out his live, he instnatly matured and studied combat, assassination, and then the usual courses. He knows a few scattered bits of magic, nothing past the test though.his dagger is a demon's assassin dagger, and it has a few odd enchantments, and if crimson were here, he'd help me explain the list.

Being a demon he can levitate, but being partly human, he has to drink the accrid fluid often, because he runs out of energy easily.

Cindertanin wears a black longcoat, made of leather, no enchantments on that, he has a pair of very baggy black pants that he can easily move quietly in, also he had a black t-shirt with a few holed in it, he can heal himself by drinking the red fluid also. he has obsidian coated glasses made by the gnomes of mount nevermind, so his eye's are covered so he doesn't scare children.

I've had this character for a year now (not on the consortium though) and I rescently killed him off in my novel, so I can use him here!... again. Well lets continue then))"With the slightest twitch of my magey hands, I could explode you completely dead. And it would be messy so there! " Black mage, 8-bit Theatre.

OOC: Its slyknifes thread, but i don't think it would be a preblem for you to join, this is the Newbie Adventure after all, apart form the not so newbie people being in it....hehe.

IC: Jalan still ached from head to toe, the elf woman had healed him, or so he thought anyway, he hadn't had to time to ask and introduce himself properly. As he leaned on her, she was suprisingly strong for an elf maid, usually they are as delicate as a flower, but this one was string of spirit as well....he wondered what knid of magic she used to heal him...was she a cleric, had the gods returned to ask the elves their forgiveness for leaving, he would have to wait and see he supposed.

IC:

Taking precautions, Kara skirted the evil city of Neraka without being spotted. But if she didn't quicken her pace, she would surely be caught. For long hours she traveled, her mind too occupied to properly sort out why she was on Krynn. She knew well enough where she was, but why had she ended up in Godshome?

Greatly fatigued, Kara was thankful when a town came into view. Dragging her sore feet, she found an inn where she could rest and think things through while getting a bite to eat. She slumped into a chair in the corner, almost knocking it over. A barmaid ambled over to her, a flirtatious sway in her hips for the admiring male patrons. In an impersonable tone, she said, "What would you like, honey?" Kara said anything would do, and the barmaid bustled off to comply.

While waiting, Kara pondered. She knew Krynn quite well, as well as any young inhabitant of the world. But for the life of her, she could not remember why she had ended up among the constellations of the gods. She knew quite well who she was, but she also knew that this was not where she had wanted to be. Something had wrenched her from her desired course and brought her here, bereft of her ability to shape-change and her powerful magic greatly weakened. On Krynn, she couldn't even call herself a mage. Perhaps, in due time, this mystery would be solved. In the mean time, she could catch up on events transpiring on Ansalon.

A young girl, short and dark hair with grey eyes, held Kara's attention. She seemed slightly out of place among the usual number of ruffians populating the inn today, making her easy to pick out. Mildly, Kara wondered why she was here. Not that anything was strange or out of place, Kara was only curious. (You silly dragon), Kara thought to herself, (it takes very little to interest you, doesn't it? There's nothing special about this young girl, you only imagine there might be.) Yet..."Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago. Then you will realize, as I did, that it does no good. No one hears you, sobbing in the night alone."

Coldfire's shoulder was getting worse by the minute, his cloak was getting soaked in blood and he didn't have time to stop the bleeding. He hopped that he could catch up to the elves before he fainted.

Swiftwind was leading him to a tavern but it was far away, to far away. He wouldn't make it in time to heal himself. He felt his legs getting weaker he wouldn't be able to run much further, then he saw the elves tracks.

He ran as fast as his wounded bleeding body would carry him. Finally he caught up with them, they were trying to find shelter through the dence forest.

"There....is a tavern...some ways up the hill. We might.....be able...to make it."

Coldfire thought that he could stop here for a moment to dress his wound, he pulled off his cloak and felt the cool sting of the night air on his wound. Coldfire grabbed a vial of a strange pale green liquid he took the stopper out with his teeth and poured it over the open wound. It made a slight sizzle sound and and made Coldfire cringe. He then tore off a piece of cloth from his cloak and rapped it around the wound.

"Hi, how are you? Um you reckon I could sit here? There's no one here that I know, I'm kind of... Lost.All that I am, all that I can ever be, is what you perceive me to be.

Kara kept her strange brown gaze on the girl before her. "Yes, you are quite welcome to sit. I'm a bit confused myself, though I know where I am. My name is Kara Lenners." She did not extend her hand, but her tone was not altogether cold either. "If you don't mind my asking, what brings a pretty flower like you to a filthy animal house like this?" Kara cast a scathing glance at the drunken oafs slamming their ale mugs on the stained, wooden tables and singing bawdy, off-key tunes. Kara returned her gaze to the girl, holding her steady in her eyes. Her expression spoke of nothing, a calm mask worn to conceal any hints of emotion that might give her thoughts away.

Just then the barmaid passed again, and Kara flipped her a couple copper pieces. "Bring my guest here something to eat, and make it quick.""Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago. Then you will realize, as I did, that it does no good. No one hears you, sobbing in the night alone."

"I didn't steal anything you thick-headed cretin! Well it was his fault, anyone could've mistaken their knightly blade for his! I did him a favor taking it, it's rusted! I was going to hop on down there and replace it, you know that... Will you put me down you warty mule? 'ey! Hey! What're you doing!" Two bouncers, flushing a deep red under their dour expressions, hoisted a wriggling kender between them and threw her unceremoniously into the mud, slamming the door behind them.

Lyra Wooplelance pulled herself out of the mud, trying hard to slide her visor up again, staggering around blindly. She had fallen in a jumble of clinking metal pieces, covered head to toe in shining armor that weighed almost as much as she did, and waving a sword that caused her to topple forward slightly. She finally pulled off the helm, and without use of a topknot, red curls fell down past her waist in wavy sheets, bright green eyes looking slightly hurt. "Fine, I'll just find another tavern then..."

She walked down various streets in search of somewhere to get a decent meal, and her eyes settled on an inn that looked worse for wear. Smiling happily, she marched in "knightly fashion" to the entrance, her face flushed and back aching under the weight, but she carried herself proudly and nobly (as she imagined every knight should).

Seeming anxious to find an empty seat, she passed near Amber, pausing to admire a beautiful silver brooch she wore, and stopped in wonder as it came loose off her neck and landed in his pouch...And death will come on wings of song,

Amber noticed the motley group...

"Hmm, I wonder what's going on there. Would you like to sit with us?" She called. Suddenly reconsidering, she turned to Kara. "You don't mind do you?"

The question her companion had asked remained unanswered. Ambrose was relieved at this series of events. The last thing I need is for them to ask. I'd have to lie. She shuddered visibly, the thought appalling to her. All that I am, all that I can ever be, is what you perceive me to be.

Distracted from her question, Kara eyed the newcomers. "They are welcome, but I'm not paying for everyone's meal, I have nothing more to spare." Getting up wearily, Kara grabbed a few upended chairs and stationed them at her table, should the newcomers wish to sit with some of the only sober people in the inn. Among the drunken ramblings, war was a popular topic. Kara absently wondered at this, but now her full attention was riveted on the entering group."Weep, Palin, weep as I wept once, long, long ago.

Cindertanin felt odd waiting for his friend to speak, though was patient.

Evan was already back at the tavern, drinking something strong, because he hated being sober, it was, as many know, a disgusting habit."With the slightest twitch of my magey hands, I could explode you completely dead. And it would be messy so there! " Black mage, 8-bit Theatre.

Jalan stumbled into the tavern, bleary eyed, he found it hard to keep his eyes open, he was exhausted, the spell casting had really drained him. He needed a bed....even a human bed would suffice. He was famished aswell....but that could wait until he had slept. Taking a small bag from his belt, he looked around for kenders, then handed it to the elf maiden. "Here. Could you pay for food and a bed for the night, i need rest, and i can see you need the food...." Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Coldfire made sure that the group could go on without him even though they were just elves, times were changing and he didn't know where his allies lay.

"It might be wise to stick together, where are you traveling to?" He asked the elf maiden and white robed elf.

"I was planning on heading to Neraka to find out some information but if you can, I would like to come with you to the Tower of High Sorcery." Coldfire then assisted the elves to some seats by two people seemingly some of the only sober people, in the room.

Evan in a drunken stupor came out of the tavern and while seeing an elf drag a white robe to them he hastily made slurred greetings to everyone around the area, including the embarrased Cindertanin.

"You'll have to excshushe my friend he'sh shy." Evan said.

"You'll have to excuse my cohort, he's an idiot." Cindertanin said walking over to Krista, "If everyone will follow me this seems to have worked out nicely, I am in need of a few... adventurers, I have a bone to pick with a Dragon Highlord, and if any of you do I'd be glad to leave enough of him left for you to be picking at him."

((OOC: That's cool Coldfire seems like a well set plainsman/barbarian.))

"Well to begin, I should tell you his name, Dragon Highlord De'Gaul is the only one currently over Ariakas right now, and for a good reason, he was the mage who rediscovered a tome that allowed him to create Draconians, the main force of the Army Of Takhasis. Though he's not all that powerful he's a resourceful little bastard, and yes, he's by Wayreth forest.

Mostly I have not been able to slay him myself because I... am of the dark energies he wields, if he has the chance, and the time, he can gain control of me and my brothers, and that is why he must die now because no force can take out a demon clan wehen it is backed by so many armies.

De'Gaul is weak to a few things, one of them is the love of beauity. I think we can exploit that, though only if we run out of idea's. There's a new building constructed out of magic that is beyone the Tower of High Sorcery, I need to visit there for a small talk with Par Salian anyway, so it'd be a good idea for you to follow.

The one thing I can warn you of at this time, is that we may cross paths with someone who wears the robes of blood, who we should not interact with, it would be a disaster for this continent if we did." Cindertanin said, thinking about Raistlin, who took the tests as Cindertanin watched in the room where they were held, Par salian allowed him to witness and relate it back to Astinus, because both of them were ageless. Cindertanin could tell every detail, without faltering, and because of Raistlin's importance, this was necessary."With the slightest twitch of my magey hands, I could explode you completely dead.

The room had a bed at the side, a small writing desk with a chair, and a cabinet oposite of the bed. Coldfire took off his fur cloak, boots and tunic.
"Good night little friend." Swiftwind sat on the writing desk fluffed his feathers and closed his eyes.

Outside, she lay down her bedroll, and lay back, staring at the stars. "Wonder what tommorow will bring Jeren?" The wolf snorted and mental images of draconians, goblins, and dragons flashed in her mind.

OOC: Very funny Eliar but I didn't mean to take your name. I wanted something that had to do with ice since Coldfire grew up in Ice wall, I was thinking of blue fire since fire is a main element and blue is cool color. But cold just sounded better so I put them together and made Coldfire. Now Swiftwind since he was an eagle I wanted to think of something fast plus he could fly and wind is an element that pairs with flight. I was also thinking of other names I heard before, I thought of Riverwind. I was then thinking of a word that represented speed, swift. So I got rid of River and added on swift which makes Swiftwind.

Cindertanin stood outside of the inn until dawn, he, not ever sleeping, didn't find it necessary to get a room. At dawn he waited at the table for the others, for breakfast and conversation. Evan was up earliest, coming down and sitting on the opposide side of Cindertanin.

"Couldn't sleep again?" He asked.

"Can I ever?" Cindertanin said, "Demons do not sleep, and a half one doesn't either."

"But you don't age, nor die." Evan said reassureingly.

"Yes, but I still hurt." Cindertanin said ordering food for his friend, "And we die, merely not of illness or age, but we can be killed, I've just gotten lucky these thousand years.

The same stars that blanketed Kista and Jalan as they slept, had allowed Kirrain to travel through the night. It had been early evening when his father had found out about his love for a peasant girl. The ensuing argument left Kirrian with no choice but to leave his lavish upbringing. Throughout the night he had slept sporadically, waking when he heard strange noises, and moving on hastily. It was morning now, he was hungry, and desperately in need of a clean up. A short distance away, he saw two figures entering a building, hoping for a hot meal, he hurried his pace. As Kirrian opened the door to the Inn he saw a small gathering of customers. Taking a seat he motioned the barkeep to bring him some breakfast. He sat quietly, eyeing the other patrons, and considering his unclear future.

((OOC: Up to me? Ha, yesterday I went fishing on lake erie (I live one mile from it and they had me go to a port 2 hours away, by freeways, not residen tial roads) and waited for 7 hours on the worst boat in the harbor and in seven hours I caught... (dramatic pause) NOTHING! If I hadn't brought a Douglas Adams novel I might have tried to spear the fish with a spork!!!! Anyway yeah I can't be trusted to make many decesions, okay of the two newb's,

Dark Elf: Uhm, read the thread involving new character advice (one or two) and then read some threads that haven't finished, (I suggest shattered Haven, ecause that was nciely done by Kalia) and get a feel for the system (oh and please write out the words you and others like it, abbreviations don't feel quite right with a few of us here (I guess me most of all because I never seem to use them.)

Kirrain; well I must say you have a nice grasp on writing, my only suggestion is more paragraphs, other than that feel free, but the door has to close now, because we're about to start, glad to work with you.

I'm checking Dragons of spring dawning's map now, uhm we're in...uhm Does Haven sound good to everyone? Seems close enough to Solace and I couldn't find it in the map of Time of the Twins and the one in spring royally bites... *scowl's at evil undetailed map!*))

Cindertanin looked out the window onto the streets of Haven. Seeing the sun begin to rise he answered Coldfire's question. "Yes we are prepared, be sure to make yourself ready, a trip that won't be as long, though tedious, awaits." Cindertanin said seeing Evan wince, "Does the hangover hurt much?"

"No I get them a lot," Evan admitted, "so we're going to a mage tower now? Well I'd not like to do that sober."

"You do nothing sober Evan, I mean that." Cindertanin said in a too genuinely sarcastic voice.

Finally we got out on the water but we had to wait who knows how long to go out to the ocean. Deep Sea fishing is so fun, the first time I caught nothing but the second time I caught like four fish.

"So do you think that mage will really led us to the tower?"
"Keeewwwh."
"Yes, I'm sure your right white robes are the good ones." Coldfire took off the banage he had put on the wound last night, it was healing well because of the herbs he put on it. Coldfire figured that the others would not be long.
"Kahaa."
"Yes, you must be hungry. Some of my food wasn't enough, well make sure you come back by midday." Swiftwind started to flap his wings and within moments started to fly off of Coldfire's shoulder.

Kista ate lightly...knowing how magic usually affected her stomach...the true Arcane magic of Krynn anyhow...her magic...magic of the mind and earth...it never bothered her.

She turned and walked from the tavern...she would wait for the rest outside. She walked to the small grove of trees just outside the inn.. and smiled as she rested her hand on the sturdy trunk. her hand felt warm as she touched the rough bark...and a faint gold/green glow enveloped her hand.

tiny green sprites with golden wings lept out of the tree trunk...and flew around her happily...their tiny voices filled with laughter and happiness. Kista laughed herself as three settled down on her shoulder. Jeren yipped excitedly and turned in a circle, playing with four of the sprites. A twig snapped behind her and she spun, her face a mask of surprise, as the tiny sprites fled back to the tree that was their home as well as their life force.....Look beyond the coffers

Kista swallowed hard...and Jeren growled softly. Kista remembered how many of the silvanesti...the people of her birth, had treated the nature mages of her adoptive people....but she stared into his eyes...and found no malice there...just a curiousity...and a deep desire to learn....the downfall of many mages...

she managed a weak smile. "Power is all around you Jalan...spirits of the earth, water, air, fire, and even in light itself....each has a multitude of influence on our lives...and each has their own life force and multitude of spritits to protect...

The earth has rock gnomes....no where near the gnomes we know of...fire has flame faries...water undines, air has syphs, and light fairies. the little creatures you just saw where sprites...they are a combinations of elements...earth for the ground that the tree makes it's home and food, and Air for the each breath of wind that rustles the leaves." she smiled wistfully

"you won't find these in places that are tainted...tainted earth, stagnant water....spirits won't abide to live in them. they can help and will help those who ask...I have spent many lonely hours with them...they have been my friends for many years." She paused noticing the skeptical look in his eyes. "don't believe me? Hows this...." She stopped, and raised her hand to her lips...and said soflty.

"Sylph, gentle spirit of the wind...Cease all movment...so that sound does not exist!" Her hand raised and a blue/white syph hovered there in her hand...and abruptly there was no sound....though kista moved, and so did Jeren...no sound was made. She lowered her hand....and the wind breathed again....and sound rushed in with a burst of birdsong from the nearby tree.Look beyond the coffers

The one who rules their hearts and minds

-The night before-
The red robed woman listened in silence as she sat in the corner of the inn. THe group seemed to be forming quite nicely.. and she didnt see how it would be of anyones benifit for her to join the party as of yet..... They were leaving in the morning for the tower of high sorcery... She licked her dry lips.. To her right sat a Kagonesti elf.. her hair darker than deep brown pools of her eyes.
"The tower of high sorcery? I didnt think just anyone could enter there.." The elf smirked looking to her companion. Varna rolled her eyes.
"Cyanide please..." She whispered. "Im trying to listen.."
Cyanide rolled her eyes. At least the sorceress wasnt calling her by her elven name.. the name she had casted off....
"I'd imagine the sorcery towers would have alotta loot.. mebbe we should acc-" A glance from Varna cut her off.
"This could be to our benifit after all." She whispered. "They are avoiding a red robe... Im sure we could work this to our advantage however.."
Cyanide rolled her eyes. "Why not just doft your red robes for something more fashionable?"
Varna almost smiled. "I have worked hard to attain my rank.. i refuse to hide it. We will meet up with these people.. we'll follow them when they leave.."
Cyanide rolled her eyes. This was going to be a loooong night.
-The morning-
The two were up bright and early, waiting for the group to reconvene. Varna had packed the night before and Cyanide always traveled light... Now it was only a matter of time..."Wars and dark knights and evil dragons. They would come and they would go. Dirty dishes would be around forever."

OOC: Flandrake, I think it's funny that someone starts a newie adventure, then when we take some interest and decide to participate, you become upset that the story and participants dont conform to a certain set of rules. You dont offer any help or advice for us beginners, you just become irritated that we have joined in the fun. Dont you think that since this thread is called Newbie Adventure 2 that it should be a place where newbie's can be introduced to this type of roleplaying? At the same time since we are learning the ropes cant there be some leniency in the unspoken rules, who cares if it's the fourth page, nothing has hardly happened. I put some thought into my character and decided to join in the best way I could, within 2 or 3 posts you have made this experience completely unenjoyable. If your objective was to get rid of the newbie's in this thread, then you have done a wonderful job, I will not be continuing.

IC: Kirrain was famished by the time his food arrived, he polished off his sausages and toast so quickly that hardly a breath was taken. With his growling stomach quieted, he sat a fiddled with his fork for a moment, life seemed so unclear to him now.

It was after a few minutes that he realized nearly all the other patrons had left the Inn, he had been completely distracted with eating when the other's had left, and now he sat alone. With nothing else tying him to this place, he paid his due's and left the Inn.

To his suprise he saw what appeared to be a small adventuring party gathered near a cluster of tree's. Although usually shy, he decided to walk over and introduce himself, what did it matter, he had nothing to lose and no one left to care for.

He stood a few feet from them now and took a deep breath "I am Kirrain, I overheard your conversation earlier about travelling to the Tower of High Sorcery, I am willing to offer my services any way I can".

You usually are a good guy, they are bad, this means... ATTACK!

IC: Jalan walked through the grove of trees where everyone was standing. "Right, everyone, stand in a circle, transporting near a healf dozen people won't be easy, so please excuse the turbulance on the way over." He smirked to himself and stood in the centre of the small circle. He raised his arms and closed his eyes. His hands weaved into complexe symbols and gestures. His hands must have dislocated to make some of them. The words came, spidery, unintelligable to those around him, save those who understood such a langauge.

Small coloured orbs spun around the group, faster and faster, until they were soid lines. Still he chanted, faster. Magic filled him, the siblime pleasure and exquisite pain. Their feet began to leave the ground, and then ....they were gone. His eyes saw the corridors they travelled, paths of light and colour, he saw the silver moon, guiding his power, the red, as a beacon, the black, his eyes did not see.

Jalan appeared, on the ground and unharmed, but were where the others. A second later, they appeared, crashing out of thin air, to land heavily on the ground. "Oops, my apologises, slight delay...oh well.....Welcome to the Tower of High Sorcery at Wayerth." Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Kirrain hit the ground with a dull thud, his breath came in short gasps and wheezes. After a few moments he stood up and brushed himself off, he looked around, the others were all there.

He waited patiently as the others collected themselves. "What are we doing here" he thought to himself. As far as Kirrain was concerned the tower had nothing to do with Dragon Highlords, but what did he know, he had thought little of his prior problems, and that was a welcome change.

Cindertanin entered the tower as Jalan explained some of the rules. He then went to the room of Par-Salian.

"Old one, I have come to explain my next actions." Cindertanin said, bowing his head.

"I've heard, you cannot attack De'Gaul, Paladine warned against it, it will cause an upset in the fragile balance of the world." Par-Salian said.

"You, of the white robes, should understand that it may be the necessary thing to do to protect the balance itself, Takhisis is coming back old one, and I'll help stop her, like it or not." Cindertanin said turning.

"Paladine has not sanctioned your actions, you'll listen to me, or I and the conclave will stop you." Par-Salian said threatiningly.

"I sanction my own actions." Cindertanin said magically lifting Par-Salian off of his feet and pinning him to the wall, "And do you think what that old fool believes makes a difference?"

"Great One are you injured? How dare he...i bring him here in good will and he attacks my order.....i shall see to it that he is properly punished Master..." After seating the Master he turned to exit the room. "No..." though old, his voice still demanded authority. "Leave him be....he has his reasons...but i have a task for you Jalan...."

In her arms she held several books with red binding. Varna stopped infront of the group and began apparently speaking to them.

They most certainly would not endorse an artifact of this stature..

Coldfire walked away from the halls and his room and any mages he happened to see. The mages looked at him in disgust as he walked by them. Coldfire knew better than to start a fight with every mage in the tower so he paid it no mind. He was bothered by the two people who had asked them if the group was going to the de'gaul region. He didn't like either of them one bit. First they follow us and then they expect us to travel to the de'gaul region and help them find a runic. Coldfire had many things on his mind and wondered if this group was worth it.

Cindertain was he would show him to another Dragon Highlord to kill. Coldfire had lived through this for too long he wanted the dark forces to be defeated and if he had to join with these people then he would. Coldfire went down to a quite area and began to meditate.

Kirrain was tired of waiting, he had been offered a small room when they had arrived, and now he was becoming impatient within the confines of these quarters. "I wonder how long we will be staying here" he muttered to himself.

He paced back and forth, counting his steps, every six steps he turned on his heel and repeated the process. Giving in to the fact that whatever they were all here for was going to take some time, he sat down and inspected the draw on his bow. Throughout his youth his father had tried to teach him the finer points of close combat weapons, those lessons always ended in his fathers bitter dissapointment.

The bow, on the other hand, came as naturally as breathing. His human eyes spotted targets that none but elves could see. Each draw of the bow seemed powered by a man twice his size. His arrows hit their targets with deft precision. He had dedicated all his efforts and time to mastering this weapon his father had referred to as "the elven stick".

Kirrain had heard footsteps outside his door, and followed the others into the courtyard. They had discussed their plans for a short while, then left on foot to avoid attracting attention.

At the front of the group Jalan stopped suddenly, his face somewhat paler than before. Kirrain could not quite hear what was being said, but he guessed it was not good.

He stood near the back, waiting for someone to inform the group of their travel plans.

"Darken Wood? Hmm I have heard many thing about that place. Most of us should be afraid."

Coldfire looked back and noticed that Kirrain had a puzzled look on his face and Jalan was a white as his robes. Coldfire walked back to tell Kirrain that they were going to the Darken Wood.

She paused and looked at Jalan...something odd in her eyes. "Be thankful that though this path may be dark....it is not the darkest path on Ansalon...."You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

Although Kirrain had heard tales of Darkenwood, the tone of Coldfire's voice sent a shiver down his spine. "Are you sure this is such a good idea" he said, "What is keeping close to Cindertanin going to accomplish".

Not wanting to appear a coward, he bit his lip and silently accepted the chosen path. Had Coldfire and the others noticed his brief moment of apprehension. "Bah, even if they did, what does it matter, I am going to see this through till the end" he thought.

He thanked Coldfire for the information.

Cindertanin chuckled, "Darkest paths?

Cyanide shuttered, her ears picking up at the mere words... Varna put a claming hand on her shoulder.
"It is a test.." She whispered. "We will find what we seek." CYanide looked to the others. they weren't going to be couragous than her. No one was as brave.. At least in her mind.
"I suppose we'll go to then." Varna smirked. "Finally! This is the elf I bound myself to." Varna smirked at the thought. PErhaps bind wasnt the correct word. She had chosen the elf over others as atravleing companion.. Lunitari had commanded it. "Destiny commands it... you and the elf.." She had been shown an orphan girl. had appeared at the orphanage and there had been many... She had found Cyanide, the eldest of the bunch of 'children' The girl had been 200 years of age..

OOC: Um Kracha if the elf was 200 hundred years old then the elf would have left on its own. They reach maturity at age 100 or is it 99. Anyways its one of thoughs two. So that is just a little thing I noticed.

And in the map inside Dragons of Autumn Twilight it says that Darken Wood is east of Haven. Which is south of Solace and north of River White Rage. And also Tiefling wouldn't be the term: A Tiefling is a race that has deamon ancestors, so they still have some power but not as much as a half-deamon would.

Kirrain chuckled, "Wiggling ears" he joked, "Do you expect our enemies to die laughin...." Suddenly Kirrain cut himself off, something was not right, he had no idea how he knew, but he told himself to follow his instincts.

"I hate to interrupt, but I think we should be on our way". He looked to Cindertanin and Jalan for a quick decision. He knew not whether any of the others sensed danger, or whether they believed him, he only hoped the urgency in his voice was convincing.

"Brother, it's been a while." Cindertanin said looking to the tree's.

"Not that long if you'll remember, I have a warning, it, is guarded more heavily than our lord assumed." Equetanin said quickly, "And I am not the only thing that lurks here." he added walking away.

"Right." Cindertanin said, "Good to know, thank you again." With that he looked to Ambrose, "It's not that dangerous, just a few sensitive area's of the forest, I'll lead, I'm a bit more experienced because of my age you know." Cindertanin said.

Evan pulled Abbrose aside saying, "Well he is old you know, he does look barely old enough to drink, ahh bless a good ale... oh, sorry sidetracked, though he is a Half-Demon you know, he doesn't age.

Coldfire foolowed close behind Cindertain. He had felt the dark feeling too but he didn't care. As long as he could fight he was strong and fearless. He took out his dagger and began to sharpen it with a wet stone. His thoughts trailed to the last time he was at Solace. He could smell the spiced potatoes from the Inn of The Last Home.

The tree and the scroll exploded, the dagger langing in a tree behind Coldfire, embedded in it. Cindertanin went and pulled his dagger out of the tree.

"Anyone want to take a guess what that scroll was?" He said looking at Evan.

"What the? Son of a hell, what the bitch was that?!!!" He said completely out of it from his near sobering experience.

"I said guess." Cindertanin said, taking a drink our of the inner pocket of the longcoat, "Here, get drunk on me, for being such a fool you earned it."

The road seemed to make them all weary, for hardly a word had been spoken lately. kirrain longed for the comfort of a warm meal and a soft bed. "How much longer will we continue to travel" he thought to himself. This day seemed an eternity, it had been hours since the Orc had run out of the woods, exploded in front of them, and caused them all to be somewhat puzzled. Would this day end as he hoped, or where there more surprises in store for them? He put one foot in front of the other many more times, day dreaming of Shrii, the peasant girl he had loved like no other.

After sleeping soundly all night, Kirrain awoke to the sound of crying. He sat up and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. He sat on the edge of his bed for a few moments and gathered his thoughts.

"Yesterday had been such a strange day" he thought. He had seen an Orc explode right in front of him, travelled for miles, and finally arrived at the fabled Inn of the Last Home. "What would today bring" he thought.

He stood up and gathered his things. Apart from the soft crying there was little noise in the Inn, he assumed most were still asleep. He made his way back to the main part of the Inn, where he had eaten the night before. looking around he saw Coldfire eating breakfast. A few barmaids scuttled around, wiping tables and cleaning dishes, they were obviously expecting the morning rush.

He approached one of the barmaids and asked if she could make him some sausage and bread. After a few minutes she emerged from the kitchen, looking flushed, with his sandwich in hand. "Here you are, courtesy of the man with the dark glasses". Kirrain thanked her and made his way outside so he could enjoy the morning.

Her voice trembled and she slumped to the ground, unconscious. Her skin began to shimmer, almost as if something beneath the surface was glowing. Her face relaxed and her skin dried. Then, without warning, she vanished into thin air, leaving a depression in the ground where her body had been.

"What happened?" she asked, a tremmor of fear in her voice. then the hairs on the back of her neck prickled...making her shiver. "She's still here..." she muttered....her afinity with spirits attracted all sorts... "Ambrose?" she whispered softly.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands
and the rabbit from the cook
you can walk through a gauntlet of far seeing eyes
if you hide as a tree in the wood
you can talk to the deaf and hear from the mute
deception will save where the sword arm fails
if you work with your heart and mind

Coldfire whatched as each one of the group exited the inn so they could see what had happened. Coldfire finished his breakfast and paid for his meal. He got up and walked out ready for another day of traveling. Coldfire walked up to where the others were standing, "Are we going or not?"

"No not yet, something has happened to Ambrose.....", he reached out with his mind and magic, sensing her, feeling her, ........Ambrose can you hear me....its Jalan, what has happened, where are you?" Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,
til the tallow be dust and death's teeth gnash
this one be mine.....

I can hear you... Jalan felt a silvery cord pulling him towards another realm. Don't let it take you, Fight It! Jalan! It's the Curse! FIGHT IT! Pull me Back or I will die!All that I am, all that I can ever be, is what you perceive me to be.

Sylphs cried out to Kista, their musical voices filled with panic. Kista looked up and they seemed to focus in a line from Jalan... Her hand reached out and seemed to feel something tingle against her hand, and she closed upon it...pulling with all her strength.

"Jalan! Help me!" she cried, as she stumbled forward the cord pulling her too.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

Kirrain watched in awe as Jalan and Kista struggled to help what was once Ambrose. He wished he could help, but this was beyond his realm of possibilities.

OOC: Oh well.....i'll just do it again.

IC: Jalan had spent too many years training himself not to panic when under pressure.....the cord may have had him but he wouldn't let it take him. His voice rose in a chant....his voice like a clap of thunder as the magic took it and carried it across the unseen barriers of mind, soul and magic. Lights flashed and dazzled......the wind surrounded him, throwing everything around him into chaos.....but he was lost in the magic. His eyes danced the lines of power, wild and taxing.

Still he chanted. His hair whipped wildly.....the cord was taking Kista....he couldn't allow it. He spoke faster.....the sweat soaking his white robes. He brought his hands down in a cutting motion.....attempting to sever what ever the cord was.....after several attemots at this.....the cord shuddered under the magic of the mage....but still it resisited him.

He was running out of options. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,
til the tallow be dust and death's teeth gnash
this one be mine.....

Jalan felt the cord pull forcefully, and then scarily it gave a bit, just a tiny bit. As small threads snapped and the cord became a string, weakening, so too did Ambrose's call. Jalan could tell tell he was losing the battle.

Into the puddle of blood, apparently out of nowhere appeared scraps of the silvery green tunic Ambrose had been wearing, bloodstained and stiff with sweat. Small tufts of short dark hair (Obviously, mine) drifted to rest in the blood, and those with some sense of other Planes heard a soft screaming sound, ragged with pain.All that I am, all that I can ever be, is what you perceive me to be.

Kista cried out. "NO!!!" she didn't know this girl, but she had to do something....her hands tightened on the cord as it wrapped itself around her wrists. Her eyes sought out Jeren, the Wolf was pacing round them, his yellow eyes dark as he growled softly.

can you take me in??? jeren!! Please!! She cried out, her mental voice filled with panic. the wolf raised his head, yellow eyes meeting violet.

You risk your live chosen.... the wolf whined but then did as she asked....Kista's mind spunn, reeling out of control...and though her body struggled with the cord, her mind found the frey in the cord.....her mind pulled them together...pulling as forcibly as she could.

hang on Ambrose!!! Don't Let go!! I wont!! Kista screamed as something started to buffet her...making her cry out in pain....Jeren's howl filled her mind as the grey sheild around her thickened......In the Valleys of Fear,
Do I walk with my head high;
The weakness that threatens,
My courage belies.
And when it is courage
That fails me aw well
It is hope and my faith
That save me from Hell

Ambrose
08/07/2002 8:59 PM

No, let the cord break. I will die, and you will be better off without the Curse. Let go, Kista!

Ambrose screamed louder and then suddenly, all the wind froze. Her mind, finally terrified into action, controlled the situation enough for her not to be swept away by the pull. She realised how much she wanted to live.

"I am here! Can you hear me calling out??" Her voice rang clearly through to the people on the Prime Material Plane, (that is, Krynn) sounding strong and forceful. "I think... " She now sounded as though she was embarrassed. "... This is going to sound stupid, but I think I am stuck..."

Jalan, are you okay? Kista, you can let go, I've got it. I will be okay, I think, as long as I can work out some way to get... unstuck!!!

Ambrose didn't realise that the situation wasn't as stable as she thought it was. All that I am, all that I can ever be, is what you perceive me to be.

Kista's body trembled and Jeren Howled....

Chosen! came his mental voice...filled with pain and fear.

NO! I can't...something isn't right....I'll not let go till i know she's safe... her thoughts echoed through the air, given form by Jeren's mournful howl.In the Valleys of Fear,
Do I walk with my head high;
The weakness that threatens,
My courage belies.

That fails me aw well

"I fare well for now Ambrose.....what is this magic....the likes of it i have never seen.", he struggled......No....something is still wrong..., further did he push his arcane art.....he had not yet reached his limitations, but soon he would. "I would advise you all to cover your eyes and hold on to something."

Closing his eyes, he once again took up a chant, ancient words uttered in the days of the Age of Might......he felt his ears bleed....his muscles strained. Light poured from his very pores. The words appeared alomost visable as he traced runes of such ancient power in the air. The wind buffeted him more and more....no longer was he in the eye of a swirling vortex.....he was the vortex.....a creation and release of magic, strong enough to shake the foundations of the earth....windows shattered and wood splintered. Glasses cracked as the wind and sea howled in his ears.

Shouting words of command......"Lasto bethilion gimbiltux, Lasto bethilion yullume, Lasto bethilion illureea, huldrenra umtarious juteras kinftyulion!!......", his voice resonated throughout the common room. There would be a hefty bill after this was over. The air shimmered. Sparkled as translucent lights danced over his skin and spread out, dissappearing into a hundred planes.....the majority found Ambrose.....with a relentless ferocity, the lights attacked the cord.....helping to un-snag her from her bonds. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,
til the tallow be dust and death's teeth gnash
this one be mine.....

Ambrose suddenly materialised on the ground, slumped, blood pouring from her mouth, nose and strangely enough from her tear ducts. she was unconscious, her eyes wide open and (usually grey) now shining with an unnatural silver light. Patches of her hair were ragged and her skin was torn and encrusted with blood. Little of her clothes remained, less of her hair and flesh.

*moans*I dont expect you to understand, or to agree, only respect my right 2 believe. So I'm different. Oh please, when did that become a crime? Dont commit your random acts of pity around me. So my face was blown off when I was 3. Nothing here to see.

Kistalansa's mind spun again, and she was pulled away from that silver thread...her mind once again her own, she stared at Ambrose, and blanced at the girls condition.

Jeren slid up to her, the wolf's yellow eyes loked on Ambrose, his whining keened above the girls moans....

Kista reached out, hoping to help all she could.In the Valleys of Fear,
Do I walk with my head high;

"My magic cannot heal her.....perhaps Kista's can.....i am too exhausted....take care of her for now while i rest.....someone had best pay for these damages....", he looked around, seeing no offers.

Cindertanin snapped out of some dazed state, looking to the cord going back to it's realm he yelled out, "Not running without meeting me are you?" he said grabbing onto it as he went through the dimmensional warp. A lous crackling was heard and a gate reopened and Cindertanin walked out.

"No pun intended, but there is no way in hell I was about to let that get back here." Cindertanin said smirking, and taking out a vial from his daggers hilt, it had a glowing red liquid in it. "This won't taste good but it'll help her recover." he said throwing it to Jalan."If you have to ask why my knife is also in his back, you're not paying attention."

Jalan regarded the vial, whispered a few strained words and watched as the vial glowed a faint red. He smirked and opened his, winching as it slipped down his raw throat. "My thanks....now....where to now....obviously after Ambrose recovers....." Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Cindertanin looked... she wasn't in terrible condition, the drink would heal her, but she'd be unconscious for a little.
