Kylana Starglow walked into the King's Arm Tavern in central Palanthas, worn and weary. She had been searching everywhere for her lost friends, to no avail. She'd posted her notice and asked around at every tavern in Solace, Haven, and most of Palanthas, and no one had seen them.

Kylana sighed and walked up to the innkeeper, who was busy polishing pewter mugs. The inn was nearly empty at this time of day.

"Excuse me sir, but I am looking for a group of people," she said quietly, a friendly smile on her face. "Do you think you could help me?"

"Sure, young lady," the innkeeper said, putting down his dirty bar rag and a mug he had been polishing.

"I'm looking for a short-haired kender. He's the captain of a boat called the Cursing Dwarf," Kylana started.

"Hmmm, a short haired kender...we don't get many of those around these parts," the innkeeper said, his face darkening, "and if we do, we throw 'em out."

"I'm also looking for a half-elf by the name of Ku Y'leh Starlite, and a girl named Jury, who has a hawk companion," Kylana added. "And a dark human clothed all in black by the name of Logrick. Have you seen them?"

"Yea...I've seen me..." came a soft silken voice from a dark corner. Jury looked up, miki sat on her shoulder. "how have you been Kylana?" Jury stood, still dressed in her usual theives garb...all black. Her long chestnut colored hair was pulled back in a simple tail, and bushed the small of her back.Look beyond the coffers

"JURY!" Kylana exclaimed, her eyes as wide as saucers, a sunny smile on her lips. "Its great to see you! I've been great....traveling here and there, helping clean up the goblin problem they've been having on the Palanthas road." Kylana lowered her voice. "I think I may have found the bandit gang that killed my parents."

Kylana gestured to the innkeeper. "Bring us two glasses of your finest wine." She turned back to Jury. "So what has happened to our former companions?" she asked as she sat down, smoothing a wrinkle in her skin tight beige leather leggings. Her long silver and golden hair, the color of sunlight, cascaded down the back of the wooden chair she was sitting in.

An evil-looking dark-robed old sorcerer walked into the place. He had the looks of someone totally evil, the type of person who eats children for breakfast, cook kenders for dinner. A powerful aura of magic radiated from his body. For decades, he had plotted world domination, for decades, he had worked hard to make sure he would achieve this grand goal of his.

After taking a few steps, he suffered a heart attack and died. "I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire! EMBODIMENT OF COOLNESS, LOVER OF EASY WOMEN! And... I'm out of cash." -Eliar Swiftfire in 'The Future Fellowship'

OOC: Looks like this is shaping up to be a silly adventure....yay!

BIC:

Kylana jumped out of her chair and looked down at the mage who had fallen unceremoniously at her feet. His face was ashen and he wasn't breathing. She leaned down, checked him for life signs.

"He's dead," she said, looking up at Jury with a look of shock on her tanned face.

"Dead?" shouted a shrill voice. "I wonder what he has in his pouches!"

Amburrtail Tusslemop had thrown open the front door of the inn at the moment that the mage had grabbed his chest and fallen to the floor. She had watched in abject facination as he keeled over on the hard wooden floor. Her good friend, Kylana, was standing over the body.

"Hey, no kender allowed!" shouted the innkeeper angrily, grabbing for Amburrtail's mahogany colored topknot. He missed by inches, and she ran over to view the corpse.

"I've seen some marvelous dead things before," she started, her wide eyes straying to the mage's pouches, "goblins, draconians, even a dragon or two....but I've NEVER seen a dead evil mage! You know, Uncle Trapspringer once killed an evil mage all by himself. It was right after he and his new wife went to the moon....or was it before? Anyway...."

"Amburrtail, what are you doing here?" Kylana asked, her eyes narrowing. "I thought you went home to Kendermore."

"I did," she said, smiling. "You know, there's not much to do there anymore. The new mayor is boring. Anyway, I thought I'd come find you. You and I always had so much fun together!"

As Amburrtail spoke, her hand was rifling through the mages many pouches of spell components and magical paraphernalia. She withdrew her hand from the pouch, a small golden rod and a platinum ring studded with sapphires in her small hand.

"Wow!" she exclaimed. "Would you look at this?"

"Put that away!" Kylana said. "It could be dangerous....hold on a minute, what's this?"

Folded up in her hand with the ring and the gold rod, Amburrtail clutched a small scrap of parchment with something written on it. Kylana unfolded the note and read it.

"These items have been construed as dangerous and hazardous to the general population of Krynn. Please take them to the Tower of Wayreth with all haste so that they may be catalogued and locked away for safekeeping. Sincerely, Par-Salian."

Kylana looked up at Jury, all the while keeping a hold on Amburrtail's hands so that she would not 'search' the mage's remaining pouches. "Jury, what do you make of this letter?"

Jury stared at the message. "well I'd make it out to be just as it is...they should be delivered to Wayereth.....as much as I hate that place...." She muttered, as Miki cawed for emphasisLook beyond the coffers

OOC: Whoa, I can't believe that a dead character spawned by my random insanity became somewhat of an important plot device here. Good luck to y'all."I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire!

"This is insane I tell you insane!!! You won't succeed! Nooo!!! ARGHHHHH!!"

"Quit acting like a baby. I'm quite sure this would work. You do know that the mages of Wayreth are still ticked off after you torched half their tower with that 'Interplanar Gating and Demon Summoning' experiment you did a week ago."

"Dammit Marc, I would never forgive you if someone finds out about this. You're dead screwed!"

"That coming from a guy wearing red robe and a pink bow tie? Yeah right!"

Kheryll (aka Mertonius) turned vivid red as he looked down on his 'new' change of apparel. The Irda mage (formerly lich) was fuming mad after finding out that he left some important documents in the tower after his failed experiment and the Conclave. But being banned for a month is just too loooong a time for him. With the 'aid' of his friend Marc, he found out that the 'Queen of Mages' pageant is due three days from now.

Marc clapped his hand in appreciation.

"Good thing your an Irda, 'Kharil'. You look positively mahvelous. Absolutely mahvelous!" The young chronomancer giggled so hard he snorted in his Mountain Dew and out it spurted from his nose.

"Oh that's great Marc, you almost stained my dress! And I had a hard time trying to find a match for this tie too."

(OOC: If you're trying to imagine how he looks like. Think a teen Little red Riding hood with a big pink bow tie. Now imagine an Irda in that get up. He could pass for a fairly good looking 'she'. Damn, can't stop giggling. Tis Mertonius we're talking about here!!!) I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

Mirror wandered around the tower of Wayreth. She had decided to drop in to rest and recouperate since her last adventure, and to try and add a few more spells to her collection. She had only been there a few hourse so far, and instead of feeling rested and recuperated, she only felt bored.

Yes, bored!

She walked down a spiral staircase to what she hoped would be somewhere more interesting that the place she had just been, another library! This tower is full of them, she mused to herself. She conceded that she had spent to much time on the road to be able to stay in a place like this for any length of time when all of a sudden she stopped, because she had just bumped into something, or someone.

Whilst walking along, musing on her current bored state, she had unwittingly walked straight into a ver familiar looking Irda dressed in a red robe and a ....pink bow tie?!!!?!! The thing that was even stranger was that this particular Irda was male.

"Oooookay, I'm not too sure what I've walked into here, but you are one messed up puppy!!! And I know I know you from somewhere, but the pink bow tie is putting me off a bit! It's distracting me from being able to think at all!!!" She said, starting to giggle. The giggle then turned into a full belly laugh, and the kagonesti silver robed mage fell on the floor, rolling about with laughter, tears streaming from her reflective eyes.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

A great yell was heard from outside the tavern where Jury and Kylana as it was followed by the clatter of armored men tackling something to the ground.

"I swear I was only holding it for him!" The squeeky voice yelled to the guards as the colorful short haired kender backed away from the dog pile of guards. "I have no idea what you mean of calling me those names, but I am quite insulted!"

"How do you explain the two flasks in your backpack?" The guard screamed furiously as he kicked and punched his way out from the bottom of the pile. "I will have your hands you small %$#@!, Stinky *#%$@!!!, No topknot wanna be %$$#@!!, %@#$! !%#*@, %$#@!%%#@!#, and Then I will kill you!!!!" The guard yanked his sword from his side then charged the bewildered kender.

Tiver stood there blinking as the guard charged on to him. He was completely taken back by the dark shade of red the man's face had taken. Also still Tiver was trying to figure out why such a man would use such profane language. Tiver just smiled and shook it off as he came to his senses, and ran into the tavern quickly. Tiver smiled as he pulled a small crowbar from his vest, and pulled the nails out of the board infront of the door. Pulling it slightly back Tiver let out a puff of air as he finished just in the nick of time.

"Come out here kender and..." Whack! The loud and swatting sound echoed throughout the bar. It looked as if everyone in the bar cringed at the same time though it was the blank stare upon the guards face that amused Tiver the most as he started to laugh.

"I believe you were saying something Sir?" Tiver said rolling on the floor as he noticed two very familiar people. "Hey I know you two. Ummmmm?" Tiver said scratching his head. "Wait! don't tell me, I may have gotten older but I never forget a name." Tiver smiled to the everyone else as he started to rattle off some names. "Kyle.... wait not it at all... Defendant?... no but it has something to do with that oh yeah I remember Jury and Kylana, and who's this?" Pointing to the other kender as just as quickly starts trading off stories and items.

OOC: Its really hard for me to rp here right now with my recent problems in my life right now. So as you have seen I never really come on any more. I do miss rping with everyone and I wish I could do it more. Maybe I see everyone again some time laters though for right now Tiver is being put out to the pasture. Well, Its been real.... or would it be real? Hmmmm?
"Why didn't you warn me about this?" Urgit in a weakened tone.
"I wanted to surprise you." Silk replied looking awfully pale.
"I will never drink again. Oh, excuse me." Urgit spat out as he leaned over the railing of the ship. -Silk and Urgit, King of the Murgos

Tanis arrived in the center of the town square in a shimmer of magic, his black cloack fluttered slightly in the wind an his piercing eyes scanned the area with a kind of reserved regality. He extended a hand and the door to the inn swung open dramaticaly, then Tanis walked through the door with an imperious stride. Just as he emerged into the inn, his ominous prescence about to burst forth and quell the spirits of those within, a plank of wood sprang up from the floor, smacking Tanis square in the centre of his face.

After a moment or two Tanis regained conciousness and opened his eyes, a blurry image of two female humans, or were they elves? the ears kept on blurring, and two snack.....*ahem* Kender. Tanis stood up rather groggily and sat down at a table, reaching out to remove a couple of his magical rings from the hands of one of the Kender."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

"Gahhh! Tis Mirror! Hide me Marc! Hide meeee!!!" Mert panicked like a kid cought swiping cookies from a cookie jar. "Gaaaaahhhh!!! urkle??"

Marc's hand clamped hard on Mertonius' mouth as he quickly explained the situation.

"Uh, Mirror. This person is not whom you're thinking of..Uh, this is my sister...Uh...Kharil. Yeah, Kharil. She's gonna join the mage pageant. Yeah, and uh.... win it too!...Right dear sis?"

Before 'Kharil' could respond, a cry went up amongst some of the judges...

"Hey! One of our judges, the black robe mage, is missing!" I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

Mirror sat up, stifling her giggles as best she could, and wiping tears from her almond shaped reflective eyes.

"Hi Marc!! Good to see you! Don't try fobbing me off with that rubbish about this being your sister 'Kharil'! I'm not as much of a gully dwarf as you look! Mert, honey, why are you wearing a pink robe and a...a......red........." she couldn't say any more, because she disolved into a fit of giggles and continued to giggle unitl she heard the cry go up that one of the judges was missing.

"Holy batwings Marc, we'd better find where that judge has gone! And don't forget to bring your 'sister' with you! Where should we start looking?"Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Meanwhile, back at the King's Arm Inn........

Kylana looked up from reading the note as she heard the door to the inn crash open. A black robed mage fell to the floor, hit in the head by a board wielded by a kender...a kender without a topknot.....

"Tiver!" Kylana exclaimed. She wasn't sure if she should be happy to see her friend or appalled at what he had done to the mage. She decided on the latter and ran to the mage's side.

Tiver apparently hadn't noticed, and continued on with a "Hi Kylana!", a wave, and a smile, rushing over to greet Amburrtail and trade treasures from their pouches.

Kylana turned back to the mages with a grim look. "Goodness, this place is filled with Black Robes tonight," she muttered under her breath. She bent over to help the mage into a chair. "Are you alright, Sir Mage?"

Tanis blinked a few times, then looked at Kylana,

"I am fine. I have however developed a distinct dislike of Kender. Never liked the little sods, they get stuck in your teeth."

Kylana stepped back shocked, but Tanis appeared not to notice as he carried on,

"And I am most certainly [b]not[/b] a Black Robe. I am a Shadow Dragon, and I am called Tanis.""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Tiver blinked wondering what happened to the guard that was supposed to step on the faulty board in the floor and catch it in the face. Though much to his surprise another black robe met Tiver's hastely trap. Though the guard was on full charge and would have been knocked back clear across Krynn right now. The curiosity swelled up inside the kender as he carefully poked his head out the door. With a glance to his right he found the guard. It seems as though he had ran himself in the wall the building because his helm slid down his face and over his eyes.

With an amused chuckle the kender walked back into the tavern picking what things he could off Kylana and the Black robe and handing them to the other kender as he started talking to both of them.

"You never can tell about these old run down taverns and their loose boards. You should really watch where your going you don't want to mess up anything in that head of your's." Tiver said as he climbed on to the table and started knocking on the black robe mage's head. "Does it hurt here or here?" Tiver said with a smile as he looked at the apparent large red line that ran down the black robe mage's face.

"Kylana I think someone should kiss it and make it better, but I really don't know where I left that gully dwarf of a friend of mine at. In quite honesty I think you stood have take a look at that because it is far to funny not to be shared with other people." All time Tiver was using this to distract everyone else from what he was pocketing into his pouches and giving to Amburrtail.

"Oh, how rude of me I'm Tiver Neehigh kender of many titles and lines of lineage that even relates me back to the Majere's as being the long lost illegitimate fourth cousin on the aunt's uncle's side of the marriage brother-in-law's twin half sister, pending blood test, gradma's husband's brother sister married to a distant and questionable side of the father's family that is to say the least..." Tiver stopped for a second thinking of what was next.
"Ummm, where was I at?" Tiver said with a smile as he started over. "Why didn't you warn me about this?" Urgit in a weakened tone.
"I wanted to surprise you." Silk replied looking awfully pale.
"I will never drink again. Oh, excuse me." Urgit spat out as he leaned over the railing of the ship. -Silk and Urgit, King of the Murgos

OOC: Jury is kind of fashioned after Kitiara...though not as cold...and not a true fighter...but a theif, and a con-artist when she wants to be...


BIC: Jury had sat back down and watched the proceedings carefully. Miki watched also, his black eyes watching with a hidden inteligence. "A shadow dragon huh? interesting...Shadows are new to krynn...just like those Crystal dragons that live far north of here...seems our home is changing faster everyday."

Jury held the piece of parchment in her hand. "So what do we plan to do about this?" she asked.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

"Why don't we check out that tavern where the mage was last seen, 'Kharil' ?" Marc queried the young 'woman' beside him.

"Are you insane? What if some pervert tried a pick up line on me while in there? I do have have rarefied taste you know...."

Marc quickly clamped on his mouth before he could say something he would regret and with a wave of his hand transported him, 'Kharil' and Mirror to the tavern where the mage was found dead.

"Eeeek, there's a kender under my skirt!!!" Kharil screamed shrilly as 'she' apprted, unfortunately, on a kender(Tiver). With an angry, red faced expression, Kharil slaps the poor unfortunate soul as 'she' pulled away from the smirking little fiend.

(Kharil's mind: Good thing I wore those girdle of gender change, or I would be more in trouble...) I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

Tanis snapped his fingers and the ring and rod appeared in his hand whilst Amburrtail's pockets got noticably smaller.

"Hmm, pretty powerful for the work of the lesser races. Where did it say they were to be delivered?""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Mirror looked up at 'Kharil', and decided that maybe she was wrong, but she did look awfully like Mert..................., any way, she was distracted when she heard Marc say that the black robe was dead. She stood there, in overly exaggerated shocked silence to let the the news have the proper effect on her two companions.

"Holy dead black robed mages Marc and 'Kharil', what do we do now?! WHo will help to judge the beauty pagent now?!"

There was another moment of shocked silence between the three, which Mirror used to thank the gods that this was actually 'Kharil' and not 'Kheryl'. She didn't know how she would have reacted to seeing him again..............Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
