The waves crashed against the rocky side of the small Island, fanned by the winds and carrying the smells of the salty water up to the top of the Tower, which stood alone on it. Gleaming in the midday sun, its rays striking the walls causing them to glint and shimmer. The Tower of ‘Ocean’s End’. A testament to the works of the creatures of the sea who inhabited its great expanse. Mainly the sea elves, lending the magical skills to craft the Tower. Its walls were made of solid pearl, so when the sun hit it, violet, green, silver and gold sparkled into life.

A single spire it was, rising from the rock and soaring high, its tips brushing the clouds. The top of the tower…a platform from which three spikes protrude and bend upwards until their tips touch. The same design occurs at the centre of this platform, but held in the centre is a large orb of pure enchanted pearl. It is this that is the towers main defence against those that would wish to plunder the riches within it. Not only of gold and priceless gems, but the knowledge of the secrets of the Oceans and seas. A record and history of the sea elves is held here, most likely the most accurate and reliable source of information on the apparently fabled race of elves.

But one person knows that they exist. Daumien. Gaurdian and Master of the Tower of Ocean’s End. An Irda. Brought here before the change occurred and his race became ugly and twisted. Hearing of the great tragedy he was glad that he spent his days in the tower, conversing with the sea elves who kept him updated on numerous happenings within the world of Krynn.

He wore a robe the same colour as the Tower walls and spoke a language of magic every wizard of the three moons would have given his soul to understand never mind use. But, such a magic is not learnt, but is one the Irda are born with.

Several attempts had been made to capture the Tower of Ocean’s End, but with the power of Pearl Orb, he fended them off. Once or twice a dragon even dared take the tower. A pathetic attempt but he died fighting Daumien. His staff was wooden, again crafted by the sea elves from the bow of a sunken ship….and studded with small pearls all over, each enchanted with spells of warding and protection to the wielder.

But…as can happen, disaster strikes. The Pearl Orb was stolen… how….Daumien didn’t know…it was impossible to do so…sea elves guarded the waters around it and he would know if anyone tampered with the Orb. But somehow it was taken…right under his nose so to speak. Now the tower would be defenceless…sure he was powerful…all Irda are, but a lone Irda would be pitiful against the forces that are constantly pitted against the tower.

He would have to venture out into the world of the lesser races and find whoever took it. The journey did not appeal to him…he preferred to stay here, but he was the Guardian and it was his duty. Walking down to the rocky shore, he whispered into the wind. The waters churned and swirled, a head poked out. A sea serpent…he stepped onto its head and ordered it to the mainland.

Kynia reined in Kyel as she stared out at the water...surprise evident in her eyes. Kyel's muscles went rigid, as the Kal'lendral (Ancestral Spirit) companion's eyes locked onto the sight of the sea serpent...with the Irdra on it's head. Kynia widened her cobalt eyes and rand a hand through her silver hair.

She raised her hand in greeting, and slipped off Kyel's back. "Greetings Guardian....what brings one of you to the mainlands?" She asked soflty, straightening the silver and cobalt crystal circlet on her brow that signified her station as the Empress of her peoples...She once again was visiting the continent of Ansalon...

Kyel snorted in distdain, and pranced up to her, nudging her shoulder. "I am Empress KyniaStarr, Ruler and guide for my people, the Kirioyal...decendents of the Guardians of the eastern sea...Is there something wrong?" she asked, her arm draping around Kyel's neck.When you hear Temptation call-

Daumien regared Kynia with earnest.....then smirked. "I am Daumien....Guardian and Master of the Tower of Ocean's End....far out to the east of here, on the sea.....i must say i didn't expect to see one such as yourself....Empress...here on the mainland of Krynn....and yes unfortunately my reason for being here is wrought with trouble."

"I do not know if you have knowledge of Ocean's End, few of the lesser races do, but one such as yourself may....if so ....they Pearl Orb, the Towers most sacred treasure and its main defence....has been stolen...i know not how...but i have came to find it." He brushed sand from the hem of his shimmering robe. He let his staff go....noting that it stood by it self.

"Hmmm....travelling here may prove awkward....i would bring attention....unwanted attention....especially from the conclave of wizards....it wouldn't surprise me if it where they who took....the entire conclave would have the power enough to do such .....possibly.....anyway i had best disguise myself."

Lifting his arms, his robes stirred. Light surrounded him, engulfed him. Once it vanished, he stood, his features altered, he looked as an elf, his greenish skin and black hair...replaced. The beautiful Irda now stood as a lesser race, an elf was the lowest he would commit himself to being seen as. A human would have been out of the question.

Lowering his arms, his attention was drawn to the horse. Something familiar....ah....he smirked to himself and turned from the beast. He walked converse with him later. He turned then to Kynia, "Are you ready to leave?" Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Rue continued on the unmarked trail toward the fabled tower of the east sea. He had heard about it from an aquatic elf one of his friends back home. He wore a heay cloak and had a traveling backpack. He only wanted to see the tower but who knows if the tower even is real. Rue had his cloak unhooded because he could hardly fit hit over his horns. His minator traveling partners had left him to go on his own.
Then as he kept walking he saw to figures an elf and a Kirioyal. He only knew of the Kirioyal by legened but she looked like one.

"Excuse me do you two know of the tower of the east sea?"

Daumien observed the stranger, another lesser race, he sighed. "What is it you wish of fabled tower of Ocean's End, here to try and plunder its vast riches are you? Well i'm afraid that can't happen.....now if i were you i would run on home....."

He turned his back to walk away with Kynia, then stopped, and slowly turned to regard the stranger once more. "What is your name lesser....i mean eh...friend...." He wasn't entirely sure how the lesser races converse, he made a mental note to ask Kynia when he had the chance. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Kynia turned to the newcomer, her silver hair wiping around her wildly in the sea wind. "Greetings Sir Minotaur...Why do you search for a tower of mere legend?" She asked, as she sung up onto Kyel's back. The stallion trotted forward, meeting up with the Minotaur in a few strides.

"I am KyniaStarr...Or Just Kynia...this is Kyel...and that..." She paused...unsure what to call him...she certainly couldn't use his Guardian name.... Kyel snorted at her thought. If he's one of the true Guardians...I'll eat my Iron shoe.... Came his mental retort...

Kyel!! She stared at him shocked...she had never heard him speak that way. Sorry Empress...but I mean it...He's not of the true Guardians....only those who help the Kirioyal as the Companions are all that are left of the true Guardians...he is only an Irdra...we parted ways many many years ago. Kyel tossed his head, and neighed, his blue eyes locked on the Irdra.When you hear Temptation call-

"Do you know something Clarance, sometimes, I wonder why I go anywhere with you I really do!!!!"

"Because we're friends Tempest, why else?!" the kender retorted, skipping happily at the side of his barbarian companion, his red/yellow plaid trousers, green waistcoat and purple shirt dazzling to behold. Yet, not dazzling in a beautiful way, but dazzling in the get-me-off-this-flying
-citadel-ride-before-I-say-hello-to-the-spiced-potatoes-I-ate-for-lunch way. His topknot bounced gayliy with each skip. "Besides, it's not my fault if folks will insist on being so careless as to leave priceless pieces of jewelery laying about. It's luck I came along really! Rerox only knows what would have happened if someone else had gotten hold of them!"

"That mage didn't seem to think it was lucky! He seemed to think that he hadn't left them laying about either! He seemed to think that he'd left them safe in one of the pouches that he kept about his waist!" Tempest retorted. She was a 20 year old barbarian woman of the Teh'Ku'Ru tribe. Her hair, that used to be long and brown, was now shorter, only just brushing her shoulders. She found it much easier to manage at this length. Her large, hazel eyes, one of the outstanding, but not in any way that anyone could put their finger on, features of her face, we're sharp and glinted with a playfulness that was hard to not find contagious. "In fact, I think you we're very lucky that he was only a low level mage, or you might have found yourself turned into a frog or something!"

"You know, I've never been turned into a frog before! That sounds like fun!!!!" Clarance said, panting slightly from all the skipping. "I have been turned into an earwig before, did I tell you that story? It all began when.........."

Tempest had learnt to shut herself off from these types of stories. She continued to walk, making the right sounds ("Oh, really?!", "Wow, how interesting!") in what she hoped we're the right places!
She took a deep breath in and the sea air filled her nostrils. She exhaled loudly and rejoiced in the sensations. She slowed her pace to enjoy the scenery a bit more, but was distracted when she heard Clarance shout,

"Hey, look, there's Kynia!!!! KYNIA!!!!!!!" And off he ran.

Tempest looked up and noticed her old friend, seated on the back of Kyel. She beamed brightly and ran after her kender friend. When she got to where Kynia was, she noticed that Clarance had stopped to examine a minotaur that was standing with her. She left the kender to his own devices for the moment and went over to Kynia.

"Hello, friend, long time no see! How are thing with you?!!!"

OCC: Oh sure make me deal with a kender grrrrrrrrrr.

Rue watched the kender as he slipped his hand into his backpack and pulled out a small axe, it was one of his nicer ones: it had brown handle carved by great woodworkers and it had ruins carved all throughout it, the blade was very sharp and had no chips or scratches on it.

"I think that axe belongs to me little one." Rue said as he picked him up by his vest and held out his hand so the kender could give the axe back.

OOC: Um I hate to say this, but an Axe ment for a minotaur ...wouldn't that be a bit heavy for a kender to try to carry away...they usually take small things...easy to put in a pouch or pocket.


BIC: Kynia slipped of Kyel's back and hugged Tempest. "Tempest! Clarence! It's good to see you...I haven't seen you since I returned home, to free my lands!" She smiled, as Kyel neighed and tossed his silver mane. "Kyel is happy to see you too." Kynia looked at Kyel funny as she caught an undercurrent thought.

I am Not a beast of burden! We Guardians chose this form to better protect and guide our Chosen.

She stared at him for a long moment...wondering just what was wrong. then she turned back to Tempest and Clarence. "What brings you out here?" She asked, still giving Kyel odd looks at times.In your dreams magical thoughts

Clarance looked up at the minotaur in bewhilderment as he was dropped bodily on the floor by the beast. The giant then presumed to take up an axe throwing stance at something that could not be seen. He thought he'd seen everything, but a mad axe wheilding minotaur (and not mad as in angry!), was another first. His pose looked so comical that Clarance could not help but start to laugh. And once he started, he couldn't stop. Soon he was holding his belly and rolling around on the floor, large gaffaws coming up out of his throat and tears streaming down his face.

Tempest heard the laughter comming from the kender, and turned around to look at her little friend. She decided that it was probably better if she didn't know, and carried on her converstaion with Kynia.

"Oh, we were just travelling round, see what we could see. We almost settled down in the village back there, but Clarance decided that he was going to start keeping a few things safe for people, and we had to leave."

She walked over to Kyel and started to gently stroke his long mane. She sensed that the animal wasn't happy. "What's wrong with Kyel?" she asked Kynia. It was then that she noticed the elf standing off to the side, looking as if he could not even be bothered to speak with lesser mortals such as this rag-tag band of people. "And who's the good looking stiff over there?" she asked.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Kyel arched his silver neck, mane and tail flowing in the sea wind. His blue eyes locked on the Irdra...his enitre frame taut ready to spring at Kynia's motion.In your dreams magical thoughts

The sound came again, Rue knew something was there but he didn't know what. He saw Clarence laughing on the ground, and then the sound came again.

Only Rue was prepared for what happened next, five trolls came out from the wood and started to circle the group. Rue threw his axe and hit one right on the forehead. He pulled out another axe but this one was ment for close combat..... "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Kynia and Kyel turned their heads around at the same instant. Kyel snorted as though fighting such creatures as these where below his worth, but he reared and pivoted on his hind legs, and plunged forward, just as Kynia drew her sword.

Kyel trampled one beneath his silver hooves...while Kynia's slender sword slashed another nearly in two. A third lunged at her...and before Kyel could react, Kynia's blue eyes locked onto the creature...He froze in midair, Kynia's power keeping him there for the barest instant, then he was flung back, slamming into the sand....he didn't get back up.

"Stupid creatures...after dealing with the Menace that plauged my lands...and dealing with a Demoness that promised to destroy my friends and people...what makes you think you have any chance with me?" She snarled, as the fith met her eyes.In your dreams magical thoughts

"I know who Gerlosh is, he is a powerfull Ogre who only seeks the most rare and powerfull magical items." Rue then walked over an picked the troll up, "Why did he send five trolls to get an item?"

"We heard that the tower of the east sea no longer had the crystal, we could make it in without getting killed by the defenses."

"Who are you?"

"A servant of Gerlosh, a soilder sent out on missions."

"I believe we are now done with him." Rue says then throughs him up against a tree, you can hear the bone craking sounds as the troll hits the tree.

He whispered a few words and transformed back into his original form. The proud Irda stood there, radiant in the fading sun. The beauty of an Irda was beyond any words uttered by the mortal tounge.

"This is my true form.....i am Daumien, Irda Master of the Tower of Ocean's End....and yes the Pearl Ord has been stolen.....it would appear that this....Gerlosh has an idea of who may have taken it....such news could only have come from some sort of source.....do you know the way?"

Kynia nodded at the Irdra...though she was half, she had no disguises to dispell...her beauty rivaled that of the Irdra near her...but it was an etheral beauty, not celestial. Her long silver hair and dusky skin made her seem almost more beautiful in her own respect than the Irdra.

She shethed her sword, and Kyel pranced forward a few steps. "I hope you know...because the Guardians guard treasures long forgotten by the people of this world...Treasures that only the gods and Dragons remember...If it has been stolen...then Krynn is in dire need of help." She said, her blue eyes dark. Her silver hair flowed gently in the wind, revealing the platinum circlet that rested on her brow, an odd, multi-colored gem rested in the center. The gem seemed to shift through the seven colors of the rainbow...varying paces...from agonizing slow, to speeds so fast that one could barely recognize one color before the next took it's place.

"we should go...before anyone or anything else finds us." She said, and Kyel nodded, his silver mane flowing wildly.In your dreams magical thoughts

Clarance looked up at the huge minotaur. He had been in awe of the way the minotaur moved against the goblins, and had decided that he would make a very good person to have as a friend. Not for any other reason apart from the fact that Clarance could then tell everyone that he had a minotaur as a friend.
He listened to the giants comments about roasting him. "Although that does sound like fun, sir, it might also prove fatal. I've never been roasted before, but i have roasted things before, and they tend to get all burnt and charred, especially if Tempest is roasting them, and seen as that might not be a very good thing to happen, maybe you shouldn't roast me.
"By the way, how rude of me, I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Clarance. I would tell you my last name, but I've forgotten it, and it has changed so many times, that I can't remember which was my original one. You see, it all happened when..................." He happily skipped off after the Minotaur.

Tempest looked in awe up at the Irda male that stood before her. Never before had she seen such beauty. If only he wasn't such a stiff! she thought, I could quite easily see myself falling for him........ She waved those thoughts out of her mind, or at keast made them retreat into he recesses of her subconcious, and turned up to Kynia.

Kyel turned his shining blue eyes to Tempest and locked with hers. No...Guardians are like me...Irdra who split off, wanting to do more in the world than stand idly by while it destroyed itself. He is Not a guardian....we Guardians are the Ancestors of the Kirioyal...a race of beings that are the halfbreeds of Irdra and Star Elves of the eastern lands.

Kyel's form shimmered, and a second form superimposed iteslf before the silver stallion. A blue skinned Irdra with silver hair and bright blue eyes stood before them all, dressed in silver and white silk. The form was transparent...not fully materialized in this realm.

I am a Guardian, some of the Irdra in the west consider us rouges...but I consider us the Compassionate ones...the ones who don't stand aside and watch chaos wreck havoc in our world...." Kyel smiled...and the shimmering form of the Irdra Guardian faded from sight, and Kyel nudged Kynia affectionately.

Kynia smiled and patted the proud silver neck, and sat up straight. The two looked like a noble pair, Kynia in her blue and white silk tunic and breeches, long white linen cloak...Her long silver hair and cornflower blue eyes, and dusky complection with the sparkling circlet on her brow....Kyel with his blue and silver tack, blue saddle blankets, and silky silver coat, Mane, and tail.

"we had better go...I don't like staying here." she said, as she calmed her mind for whatever tasks may lie ahead.In your dreams magical thoughts

Rue knew that they were hiding something but he knew he would have more luck with Kynia than Daumien. He then thought of the barbarian and the kender.
"So Tempest, how do you know Kynia." He thought that he might be able to get some information out of this women.
'Sooner or later they have to slip up. Kynia caught herself just in time but I can still get information from Tempest and maybe even Clarence.' Rue thought as he turned to give full thought to the conversation. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Tempest streched as she walked along, pushing her arms against the heavens, her shoulder length hair, curling in waves at the bottom, swirled slightly in the light breeze.
"Oh, me and Kynia go way back!" was all the Minotaur got out of her.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!

Since Rue couldn't get anything out of Tempest he started to take point after Kynia went ahead to scout.

'I might be able to get some information from that kender, they always have loose tounges. No, I wouldn't be able to live with myself if the kender thought I wanted to hear him yak and yak. But I need to know something now and Daumien doesn't want to even talk to me. I guess I have to ask the kender.'

Rue sighed and slowed down a little bit till he was side be side Clarence, Rue swallowed hard, "So how well do you know Kynia and Daumien?" Rue knew he would regret this later...... "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Daumien treded heavily upon his staff. He could hear the minotaur asking about him from behind but paid it little heed. Night would come and they needed shelter. A spell would sort that. He supposed he would have to share it with the lesser beings....but minded it not too much....he had 't had any company , save the sea elves, in many many years and it was comforting to have this minor change.

Clarance looked up at the Miotaur, swinging his topknot to the side as he did. "Well, as Tempest said, we know Kynia from way back! But we only met that other pretty man just now. He's quite rude really, isn't he? A freind of mine used to have a cousin who had an uncle like that. I suppose that would make him his father wouldn't it? Or maybe his Fathers brother? I don't know! Anyway, he always used to act the same way as Daumien is acting, always snooty and not very friendly. Well, that was, until one day................."

Clarance was in his element now, and swung his hoopak happily at his side as he told the minotaur his story.



Tempest looked towards the sky and noticed the quickly decending sun. She realised that soon, they would need to make shelter, and wondered where they were going to find that from while walking along a beach-sand on one side, ocean on the other!
She looked off in front to where Daumien walked. She noticed how heavily the Irda leaned on his staff, and wondered if he might be unwell
She walked over to him, "Excuse me, Daumien, are you okay?"Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

Rue sighed, Clarence was telling one of his kender tales. He looked at Tempest, she was trying to talk to Daumien, 'Good luck.' thought Rue.
As Clarence was talking away the sun fell faster and faster. 'Hmm Kynia should be back soon then we can make camp.' Rue was used to ruffing it, he loved the outdoors.

Expecting that the others would be thinking the same thing about camping, Rue said to Clarence,"Tell me about it later." Rue sped up to where Tempest and Daumien were, "I sugest we find a place to camp for the night. Also it would be good to gather some fire wood while there is still some light out. Kynia should be back soon, I could go ahead a track her down if you wanted. So what do you say." "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

"No....she can take care of herself....she has great skill and knows how to use it...." He regarded Tempest with a strange glance.....but his eyes hid a truth known only to the sea....." It is none of your concern lesser being......." He winched a little....." But thank you all the same.....yes we had better find shelter.

Coming to a group of nearby trees, Daumien stopped and raised his staff in both hands. He began to chant, whispering silently words of magic known only to the Irda....contained within his blood. Small beads of light encircled him then spread to the trees. They began to bend, twist and turn to their wielders will. Soon the trees formed a shelter, thick and strong. "There.....shelter."

Rue had seen magic several times, he could even cast a few spells himself but could never even begin to do something like what Daumien had done.
"Very nice, should I go hunting and gathering or can you conjure up some food too?" Rue had no problem with hunting for these so called higher beings. Rue felt that Clarence could annoy Daumien, Kynia, and Tempest. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Kyel stepped out of the tree line...Kynia on his back. "Hey guys...I figured you'd find this place....It's pretty quiet around here now...but that don't mean a thing once the sun sets..." She slid from Kyel's back and he nudged her shoulder..

She looked at him oddly and nodded slowly. The stallion turned his head to the group, bowed it, and then turned and melded back into the treeline.

"So...Tempest...want to help me hunt before it gets too dark?" she asked, hefting her vallenwood bow.Look beyond the coffers

"Hunting? I thought such might have been beneath you....your Majesty.....but i suppose such is a necessity for you all.....i will eat no meat....i shall look around for some vegetation....perhaps fruit. "

He turned to Rue...." Conjured food lacks body....taste is distilled.....i conjure food only in emergenices when food is short...otherwise i do not exert my abilities into time wasting activities.....i hope that answers your question." Daumien entered the shelter and say down...he needed to meditate a little before eating. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Tempest caught the slight undercurrent in Kynia's voice, something was on her mind that she needed to share, but it had to be done in private..........
"Of course Kynia, I'll come with you!" she smiled broardly, unsheathing a small hunting knife that she kept in her boot. With a slight backwards glance at Daumien (sp?), and a raised hand to tell Clarance that he wasn't invited on this small adventure, she left the group with Kynia. When they were far enough away, she turned to her friend,
"Kynia, what is it?"


Clarance looked after Tempest as she left with a almost hurt look on his little face. She'd left him here on his own! However, this was soon forgotten when he noticed something shiny hanging out of Rue's pack. He went over to the minotaur and was about to pull whatever it was free when the beast grabbed his hand roughly. The kender, taking all this in his stride looked up at Rue grinning.
"What's that?" he asked with childlike curiosity.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

"It's mine thats all you need to know. Now if you want you can come with me to see what Kynia and Tempest are up to but only if you be quite."
Rue quickly glanced over his items to make sure nothing was missing and then plunged into the forest. He found their tracks easily but since his father was a ranger he picked up several things in fact thats who trained him mostly. Rue quickly found his way through the forest and found Kynia and Tempest. Rue kneeled behind the cover of some brush listening.

OOC: Useing your super Irda senses I'm sure you'll sense Rue but whatever. Hmmmm what should I have that shinning thing be? Could just be a gift from my family or it could be something magical. I'll think about and toss it in later. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Kynia studied the deer tracks before turning to Tempest. "I don't know...but you've noticed how Kyel has been acting...It worries me...He said something about Daumien (Sp) not being one of the true guardians..."

Kynia turned her pale blue eyes to the darkening sky... "the Kirioyal are decendants from the Irdra and the Star Elves of the Eastern continents...we are all that are left of that race...Kyel is not wholely of this world...now even more so after the incedent in Gilean's temple."

She pulled a arrow tipped with steel and edged in a silver feather. She notched it, and drew the bow back, her eyes locked on something ahead.

"Kyel is truely an Irdra of the past...his true form died in a near-cataclysmic event....one that Ansalonians call the "Cataclysm" the effects of that which the Gods did to punish punished those who didn't deserve that punishment.... Kyel died all those years ago...to be reborn in a body of a Stallion ment to protect and serve me as best he can...the Irdra of that time vowed to protect their children...knowing that mistakes of the past can remanifest themselves in the present and future..."

Kynia let loose the arrow...and they saw a stag leap forward from it's shelter only to stumble and fail in the next instant. "I saw something in a dream the other night....it was that dream and kyel that led me to this beach...the dream was of a Grey Gemstone...the Irdra of the west and southern seas kept it....they knew of it's power...but...as the Irdra of the Great and distant pasts....didn't learn from their mistakes....and Shattered the gem...and awashed the land in blood shed.

I woke from the dream nearly screaming...I was scared...I must make sure that this "pearl" isn't found by the wrong hands....if the Irdra are truely protecting it...then we must ensure its safe return...if this dream pointed to that pearl...I doubt it...this was no pearl in the dream...and what I sensed was that this is in the future...far beyond our influence...but something tells me that this pearl is no less important..."

Kynia walked up to the dead deer...and she looked at Tempest. "but it is good to see a familiar face again." And she smiled.
