OOC: Hi and welcome to this story, it takes place not too far away from Qualenost. Travel the dirt road and you'll find an Inn, stay if you like and have something to eat. Leaving might or might not be an option. It's your choice so give into curiosity and try this story it on for size.

Gyira sat in silence behind the bar table cleaning a mug with a filthy washrag. Sunlight streamed in through the front windows lighting the flooring, which was covered in an eerie ancient fog. Sighing Giyra placed the mug back on the table and slung the rag into a nearby pail on the floor. Tired and weary she left the bar and entered the back kitchen to wash some dishes.
" Three months........its been three months and it already feels like three years." she murmured, picking up some dishes from a basin and placing them into the sink. Hunching over Gryira stared back at her reflection in the murky dishwater. Her orange eyes were blood streaked and tired, the eyelids sagged with the rest of her pale face, wrinkles appeared here and there across her forehead, neck and cheeks. Her hair had lost its blue luster and hung limply in dull black tangles. It hurt to look at herself, to look upon her lost beauty and youth. And to think that it all happened in three months!
Droplets of tears burned down her cheek and dripped into the stale water causing little ripples to appear. " I should have never left my home! " she sobbed; her shaking hands clutched the side of the sink. "I should have never left, but it’s too late for that now isn’t it? You just won't let me leave."
Sucking in her breath, she let the rest of her sadness slip from her body. Straightening herself Gyira desperately wiped away the remaining tears, she wouldn’t go back to feeling sorry for herself, she had no right to.
After all the suffering and pain she had caused, brought about by her selfishness she would not allow it. She took one last look at the sink then headed back to the bar. The dishes could wait. Gyira picked up the soiled rag from the bucket and sat back behind the long bar table, picking up the mug that she had left she began to clean it once more.
The sun was almost overhead, which meant it was nearly noon. Customers would come in soon like they always did, and she would wait, as she always did, wait for some sort of release. The wood planks of the inn creaked, the sodden walls groaned against the shrouded light and the inns weathered door hung on by a single bolt in the doorway as a gray fog continued to seep in through its cracks. Out in front an old sign hung on an oxidized brass pole. It had already revealed signs of wear and tear, bits of paint peeled from its surface while the wood flaked off in rotting pieces. A faded picture could still be made out against its rough wooden surface; it showed happy dancing sun with a smiling face holding up the words "The Shining Glory Inn" Beyond the inn a dirt road lead away from its steps heading into the forest and out to Qualinost. Many travelers would soon flock towards the Inn, but none that would likely make a difference. Gyira's fate had been sealed; and she doubted if any one powerful enough could change it....

Kylana was exhausted. She had been riding all night and all of the previous day to deliver her message - that goblins were indeed massing on the borders of Qualinesti. The elflord to whom she had delivered the news had not been happy, and had refused her lodging and nourishment, sending her back out into the wilderness to gather information on troop numbers, weapons, and travel routes with all haste.

Only a few more miles, she told herself half-heartedly, just a few more miles and I can rest.

Her beloved horse, Fiera, had dropped dead on the trail the previous night. Kylana grieved for the loss of her friend, the pain in her heart synonomous with the aching of her body. Her finely-made travel clothing - bodice and leggings made of beige leather and white wolf fur and matching fringed boots - were worn with wear, stained with the dust and mud of the road. Blonde curls, which hung to her waist like a lion's mane, hung limp and tangled, her normally bright aqua eyes lackluster.

Just a little longer...just a few more....there!

There! Only about a half mile distant down the road, a dilapidated inn sat tangled in overgrown weeds. The stable was worn and ill-used, the paint peeling, and a strange fog had suddenly sprung up, giving the inn a creepy appearance, but to Kylana, it looked like the finest manor in Palanthas. Her spirits lifted, her steps quickened as she readjusted her leather travel pack over her shoulder.

Just a little further, she told her battered body.....just one more step....and another....and another.....

She opened the door to the inn and stepped inside, closing the door behind her. Weak from hunger, thirst, and utter exhaustion, she collapsed onto the floor, unconscious.Peace and terror all in one, My future life has just begun.....

(OOC: Marc suddenly pops out of nowhere and proceeds to dance around Leandra, "Yay!!! Flaafy Dragon! Flaafy dragon!...Uh...OOPS! :) :) :) )

Khery catches the young woman before she even strikes the floor. Gently carrying her to a nearby table he stares down some of the inn's unsavory characters. The young man softly wets one of his towels and dabs the girls forehead.

"Inn keep, one room and put it on my tab!"

With that, Kheryl gently lifts her, carrying her up the stairs and into one of the inn's many rooms. He then slowly laid her on the soft bed. His eyes wanders to her face, a smile fleeting along, then, disappearing.

"I know I recognize her but... I just can't remember where...." I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

The floor boards of the inn suddenly rocked as a cloud of smoke appeared. A woman, dressed in an outlandish white lab coat appeared, her green hair streaked with smoke. She removed her goggles and looked around, her eyes trying to focous on her surroundings.
"Darn.. Looks like I botched it again.." She muttered looking down the beaker she held. She looked to the woman behind the counter.
"Exucse me but you wouldn't happen to have some Alkaline mixed with justa hint of Neon would you?" She asked expectantly, her purple eyes shining with hope.
"I Really hope you do, coz otherwise im going to be stuck here for quite sometime..." She looked around, wondering if she could ever find this drab place comfortable. She hoped the woman would repsond positivly.. although she had her doubts about this place.. it appeared to be as backwoodsy as the complex on Freija was...

Kylana’s sleep was restless and feverish. She tossed and turned, tearing and twisting the bedclothes with her wild thrashings. Her cold sweat soaked her ruined clothing, and she often screamed out unexpectedly. She was only moderately aware of someone caring for her, dabbing her face and neck with cool water when the fever rose, holding her when she
was thrashing, and soothing her when she screamed. This continued for two days, and finally, on the third night, the fever broke. Kylana slept soundly, and opening her eyes the next morning, did not recognize her surroundings.

Opening her eyes, she saw a man, his back turned to her, preparing cool towels over a washbasin in the corner. She deduced that this was the person who had cared for her through her fever.

“Who are you?” she managed to say, her musical voice hoarse from screaming and lack of water. “Where am I?”Peace and terror all in one, My future life has just begun.....

Rue walked quickly through the forest in order to reach any village or inn to deliver his message that goblins were going to attack almost any place in their way. He could handle goblins but there were to many of them for just one minataur to handle. He knew he was being followed by goblin spies and was probably going to get killed in his sleep that is if he did sleep. He hadn't stopped for three days, he drank and ate while he walked.

He was tired from running, 'This is not what a minataur should be doing.' Rue thought but he needed any army the elves would never side with him and he was all the stood between the countryside and the goblins. He had already convinsed several inns and villages to join in the fight but all twenty of the people who went with Rue either died or got captured.

He was all that was left of a Rebel group of about four hundred or so. Finally he broke out of the forest and seeing an inn he started to jog toward it. When he reached he turned to see a group of goblins advancing.

Rue pushes his way inside, "Any of you that can fight or that want to save this inn better get reading. Goblins are going to be attacking us in a few seconds!"

A young woman had been sat in the corner of the inn, as close to the fire as she could get. Her face, as was the rest of her body, was shouded in a thick, heavy red robe, with dark mahogany runes etched around the hem and the cuffs, pouches hung around her average sized waist and bounced against her hips as she stood up and walked over towards the Minoautr.

She dragged her left leg slightly, as if it had been hurt in some kind of accident. As she reached the size of the beast, all could see that she was short for a human, for that is what she was. She barely came up to the creatures waist. She straightened her posture, letting her eyes rest onto those of the minoatur, who visibly shrank back from her gaze, for the iris of her eyes looked to be white on first inspection, yet with a closer look, one would be able to see that they were in fact, many coloured. They were multi-faceted. I was like looking at two crystals, glinting in the sun light.

"Do not fear, Sir Minotaur, the goblins will not attack this place." she said, her voice soft, calm, cool, lilting and entrancing.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

A young woman runs into Rue. " Oh, i am sooo sorry, mister." She turned around and face Rue. She was beautiful. She had dirty blonde hair and the greenest eyes around. " Hi," she said blushes at the sight of Rue. " I am Myairoung- Mya fro short." she blushes redder. " Um, uh, would you like to sit down? You look very tired."

Saiya frowned, her silver-white hair falling loosely around her shoulders. She wore a short tunic-dress of white leather... The wind tosled her hair revealing the pointed ears of her race....The Kagonesti. Her almond shaped emerald eyes where sharp as she spotted the inn.

"There!" she said softly as her mount, a huge Silver furred wolf raced forward. The Wolf, Moro was the size of a Decent sized horse, and she twitched her ears attentively toward Saiya and stopped. Saiya slid down from her back and she hugged her friend. "Ill get us some supplies and food okay Moro?"

Moro nodded. "Fine with me Saiya" came the growled reply. Saiya spun as an Arrow slammed into the door. She turned to see the troop of Goblins heading their way. "Moro!!" she cried, and Lept back on the Wolf's back. She pulled loose her Spear, and waited for the first of the Goblin ranks to approach. Moro growled and raised her head in a full throated Howl, while the furr on her back and tail bristled madly.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

Gyira looked up from her place behind the bar table. She dropped her rag as she watched a tired blond traveler burst through the door dropping to her knees, and then to the floor. Just moments before her delicate body made contact with the misty floor a young man stepped in close behind the young woman catching her. Blond curls poured over his arms as he gently carried her to an empty table, dabbing the woman’s face with a wet towel, He looked over his shoulder at Gyira

"Inn keep, one room and put it on my tab"

"Of course sir." Gyira nodded slowly, but made no move to ask the strangers name or record his request. Silently she pointed towards the left staircase, motioning that there were empty rooms in that direction. All the while her tired eyes focused beyond the old opened doorway. Bewildered, she makes out the figure of a minataur headed towards the inn. Quickly she dashed towards the door. Only to hurriedly jump out of the way of the frantic running creature. Breathing heavily the minataur grabbed the side of the door and manages to speak.

Any of you that can fight or that want to save this inn better get reading. Goblins are going to be attacking us in a few seconds!"

"Goblins…now?…during this time of day?" Gyira thought to herself "This might work in my favor."

Squeezing past the enormous beast she stepped outside. Scanning the strained forest
"They’re not here yet bu-"
Gyira’s thoughts were unexpectedly interrupted, the silhouette of an animal appeared on the road heading towards the inn at a steadily rate. She could make out the face of a female elf with shining silver hair riding upon the back of a large white wolf. Gyira sucked in her breath as the wolf stopped in front of the inn, she had seen many of them roaming around the forest, but none that looked as large as this one! The silvery haired elf stepped down from the wolf, hugging the creature; she turned and walked towards the door were the slightly stunned innkeeper stood. Gyira kept her eyes on the wolf, but noticed something moving in the trees beyond. Like lightning, a silver flash shot from the woods.
Fwwwwwht!! ….And hit directly above the door inches over Gyira’s head.
Seeing the arrow the elf maiden spun around and leapt back onto the wolf, loosening a spear from her side she poised herself for battle as a troop of goblins could be seen marching towards the shining glory Inn.

"This might or might not work…" Gyira sighed removing herself from the front of the inn and stepping inside to the safety of its rickety walls. "You there! Elf woman!!" She shouted waving her hands to catch the girls attention. "If you don’t want to get caught in a blood bath with those creatures then you will come inside NOW!!" Gyira turned around, facing the others who had come to the Inn. "That goes for the rest of you, stay within these walls and don’t step out, no matter how close those goblins come, or how bad the situation may seem. Do nothing!"

Saiya turned, her silver hair flying around her...she turned and yelled at moro in her native language, the wolf growled once more then dashed through the door, trying to keep close to the walls, and not trample anyone.

"I thank ye!" Saiya said as Gyira slipped inside after her. She turned to Moro, who limped a bit. "Moro! Are you alright?" The Wolf lowered her head, and raised her front left paw... I'm fine, just cut the pad on a sharp rock...I'll be fine Saiya... came the wolf's reply perfectly understandable by any in the room.

Saiya frowned as she saw the goblins get closer...and lay back against Moro's shoulder. "My name is Saiya WolfDance....This Is Moro...I am a Kagonesti...she...is...well My guide...who are you all? seems we might be stuck in her for a bit..."

She tossed her silver-white hair over one shoulder and everyone could now see that it was braided with silver wire, crystal's and white feathers.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

"I fear nothing mage! And you I do not wish to rest now when the goblins are coming at us. Okay start covering up the windows and lock any doors." Rue ran toward the nearest table and lifted it up and pushe it up against a window.

"Are there any people in the rooms upstairs? if so go warn them of the coming onslaught...." Rue's words were interupted by a goblin breaking through a side window. Rue flung out a throwing axe and threw it, it hit the goblin straight in the forehead. "I'm Rue." He ran to another table and closed up the hole the goblin had made.

"We might have to fight in close quaters. Hurry up no time to waste!"

Rue drew out another throwing axe and started to help bare more windows. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

Moro growled suddenly as another Goblin scrambled through a broken window...Her Jaws snapped before anyone had a chance to react...and literally snapped the creature in two.

She shook her head, and pulled her lips back, grimacing at the taste of goblin blood. Loathsome creatures! She snarled as Saiya rolled a table against two of the windows. Moro leaned against it...her weight holding it in place.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

"Uh, hello miss. I'm sorry I didn't hear you. You're awake now..."

Marc smiled sweetly as he set a small trencher of food in front of the girl. His flushed a beet red as his hand brushed hers. "I'm sorry, I haven't introduced myself. My name is Marc..."

But before he could go on further, a goblin crashed into their room, swinging a blunt scimitar wildly, screaming an inane war cry.

Marc deftly pulled several throwing daggers from his vest and threw it at the creature, striking it so hard that one shred through its arm.

"What are those things doing here? Are we under attack?"

The red robe sighed and pulled back her hood, swallowing back her ire, but with difficulty. She revealed her fce, and the eyes were not the only thing that was strange about her. Her skin was a soft hue of silver, and her hair was a stark mass of black that hung to her shoulders, glints of metalic red showing through the darkness every time she turned in the light.

She went over to the open window that the goblin had tried to come through and shut it hard. "Would you people listen to me please?! Stay inside the building, keep all doors, windows, everything shut, and no goblin, or even a dragon will be able to harm you?! Now, are there people upstairs?" she asked the misstress of the inn, who nodded in the affimative. The starnge red robe nodded once, spoke a few words of magic and appeared a few moments later in the room that was being occupied by a young man and woman, a corpse of a goblin lay on the floor. She sighed heavily again and went over to another open window and pulled in closed with force that was unconciveable in such a short frame of a woman. Keep the windows closed, and no one will get hurt. Now, could you please follow me?!" She said, staring at the two, tapping her foot with irritation.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Kylana flushed bright red all the way to the tips of her pointed ears. A young man and woman sharing a small room in an inn - she knew what it looked like, and she was embarassed. Worse yet, during her fever, she had either torn her clothes off or they had been removed for her to cool her fever. The strange red robed mage had seen her lying in bed in her smallclothes. Kylana was so mortified that she could not even look the mage in the eye.

She quickly dressed in the ruins of her clothing, strapped on her short sword, and slung her bow and quivver over her shoulder. She followed Marc and the Red Robe from the room.

“I-I’m sorry,” she whispered blushingly to Marc as they followed the mage down to the common room of the inn. “I didn’t mean for this to look like....what it looked like.”Peace and terror all in one, My future life has just begun.....

The woman with the green hair stared dumbfounded as the girl whipped past her and ran outside. She pushed her glasses back up her nose with her index finger and scratched her head.
"I... Guess not." She blinked. These people were strange. What had she gotten herself into? She decided to step back to where the woman had been sitting by the fire place.
"Once the ruckuss settles down.. Ill start inquiring as to where I am... For now though maybe it would be best for us to stay here.." She said petting her pocket. A small squeek affirmed he was still with her.

"Of course she’s wrong" Gyira sighed, turning face to face with the red robed mage. Her tired orange eyes lit up as they once did when she was young. "I don’t know what you think you can do that will help shield us from trouble in any way, but whatever your idea is, I suggest that you disregard it. This broken down Inn doesn’t need to be protected, it can do that itself." Gyira stepped back. "The Mage are too full of themselves." She spoke aloud "And assume that nothing is beyond their power…Well let me assure you that this situation most defiantly IS. Just stand back and let things take care of themselves." Gyira walked up to the Kagonest elf Saiya and the Minataur Rue, who were holding the front door and windows shut. Her tone softened "Thank you for trying to stop those creatures from coming in, but that wont be necessary. Just please lead everyone else to the open space behind the bar, there should be enough room for all of you." Gyira motioned them to move. "Please do it quickly so that I can let the Inn deal with the goblins." I dream of the night, I dream of the moon.

Saiya and Moro looked at each other for a long moment, then the huge Wolf's ears flicked back and she sneezed. Saiya smiled and they both backed away from the table that kept the goblins out of the inn. Saiya lept over the counter of the bar, and Moro lay down in front of it, her huge emerald eyes watched the door with interest.

Marc stared at the mage that gestured to them. He 'thinks' he recognizes her from somewhere but...

Not since his arrival to this inn, working as a cook and assistant to the inn keeper, he has no apparent recollection of anything beyond that. The inn keeper, before leaving, indicate that he was suffering from 'amnesia'. Whatever that high sounding thing is, it was suppose to be bad.

"Uh... What is actually happening around here? I'm just a simple cook and employee here..."

And Leandra, I was actually implying that the Inn would do the defending all on it's own! I was gonna go into this long speech about how I had been trapped here for what seemed to be an eternity blah, blah, blah, and that the main purpose of the inn was to keep all those that were inside it, inside it for ever and ever and ever!!! Then I was gonna leave it up to Leandra to do the rest!
The only reason I felt sure in my course of action, was because what I have just said is what has been implyed by Leandra's posts, no?!

Ok were having a teeny tiny lil misunderstanding but it can be fixed!!:D

Mertonius…..how could your char Khery become an assistant to the innkeeper when he didn’t imply that at the beginning of the story?
Flandrake....Mirror didn’t introduce her chars name yet, all we know is that she is a red robe mage.
AND Mirror...sorry the story actually doesn’t go like that, I was kinda expecting everyone to think of it as a "trapped for eternity" story, but it's really more of a...well if I tell it now then it wont be a surprise. This is one of those stories were it convinces the readers that it is one thing; then greatly surprises them in the end because its another. As for you char which was still unnamed in the story,
I thought that she walked in through the front door like the rest of the group and was claiming that she could protect the inn and stuff. That’s why I tossed Gyira on her.
I re-read the last post were you first introduced you char and now realize that you planted your char in a corner of this rickety old shack at the beginning.

BIC:

Kylana's arched eyebrows knit together in frustration. Instead of ducking behind the bar where the green haired woman ordered her to go, she marched right up to the woman and looked her in the eye.

"Who are you to order me around?" she asked angrily. I will go where my instincts tell me, and my instincts are telling me that I shouldn't be skulking behind the bar like a common tavern wench."

She drew her short sword and marched toward the back door. She turned around to look at the assembled crowd, who all had eyes as round as the top of an ale mug. "I'm leaving!" she pronounced, "Frankly, I think you all are insane!" Her eyes rested on Marc. Well, maybe not ALL of them were insane.....

She threw open the door with such force that it banged into the wall. The stupid goblins were concentrating on breaking down the front door - they hadn't even thought to guard the back. Kylana started to walk out the door...and was pushed back by some invisible barrier.

"What...what is this?" she asked suspiciously. She turned to Gyria. "Why can't I leave?"

"Well that’s because I put a giant glass wall around the back of the inn." Walking over to the invisible glass barrier, Gyira pulled out a handkerchief and polished away the smudge that the woman left when she walked into it. "Your welcome to use the front door, but its bombarded with goblins, so get behind the counter!" Impatiently Gyira pushed the elfmaiden back to the bar. "Good that’s all of you, now please keep your legs and hands at your sides at all times." Quickly she ran over to the two front windows opening each, then to the front door, unlocking it and pulling it wide open with incredible speed. The goblins poured in almost immediately, but not before she could jump in behind the bar herself. Squeezing herself between the wolf and the mage.

Knocking down tables and chairs in a crazed frenzy, the goblins made their way closer and closer to the huddled group. Finally as they were just a few step away from them, the Eerie mist that had floated atop the inns floor parted just in front of the serving bar, enough to reveal a large circular seal, of grinning sun with sharp teeth. Instantly the rest of the mist turned a deep crimson and without warning materialized into hundreds of small red imps. Each crouched down on all fours donning long sharp claws, red scaly skin, long pointed ears, and a mouthful of black needle like teeth. Chaos erupted in the Inn after that moment. The goblins who had thought that they were going to plow through the tavern, were now running for their lives, screaming and struggling; Desperately trying to escape from the Inn, and the little devil like creatures who had slept in its shadows waiting for visitors foolish enough to stop by. I dream of the night, I dream of the moon.
I woke from this sleep, but far much to soon.

The imps leaped upon their prey, teeth ripping skin, crunching into bones and chewing on live flesh. Lapping up every drop of goblin blood as if it were a delicious brew. Hundreds upon hundreds emerge from the mist, like a plague of locus. Until the mass of wriggling, howling goblins were covered in a sea of red scaley creatures. A group of goblins that had escaped desperately ran towards the safety of the forest, but another swarm of imps subdued them, dragging their bodies back into the Inn to finish them off.

The imps covered every inch of the shack, from the kitchen all the way up to the guestrooms. Everywhere except for behind the smiling sun seal were the large counter stood. The muffled screams of the goblins soon died down, leaving only the sounds of the feasting imps, crunching, chewing and slurping. Then …as soon as they appeared, the imps stopped, dissolving back into the red mist on the floor. The red fog turned back to its dark gray shade covering the seal. Within seconds it hovered over the floorboards peacefully as it did before when the seven strangers had first arrived. Nothing was left behind, not a drop blood or scrap of flesh or bones, Not even the weapons remained…. Except for a pile of de-nuded goblin skulls, stripped clean of all muscle and meat, which sat in the middle of the room.
"Well!" Gyira sighed heavily, not bothering too look back at the group "You know I never get tired of seeing that." Grinning she hopped back over the bar and headed to a closet at the side, grabbing a broom. "But I do tire of having to clean up afterwards. Anyone want to help?"

I dream of the night, I dream of the moon.

Saiya stared at the carnage before her in horror. She was happy that the goblins had been gotten rid of, but the way it had done chilled her to her soul. She clung to Moro, who also stared around the room, her Emerald eyes narrowed, her fur on her scruff bristleing.

"What mannor of a place have we wandered into?" The huge wolf growled.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands
and the rabbit from the cook

deception will save where the sword arm fails

The green haired woman stood dumbfounded. The lady certainly had a temper. She blinked.. and watched as the imps ate the goblins. she heard a woman state something about never tiring of the scene...
Kinky.. She thought. She giggled to herself at the thought of something like that being kinky.
"Help? Umm.. I suppose I could.." She looked to the mess and cringed.
"Brave up Crys." She thought. She swallowed a growing feeling of nausea. This was going to take a will of iron and stomach of steel.. Or was it will of steel and stomach of iron? She couldnt remember... She shgrugeed waiting for a response, idly pushing a strand of green hair out of her eyes. "Wars and dark knights and evil dragons. They would come and they would go.

"Well.." she glanced back at the large wolf, and equally large minataur. "Some people used to call this place home, that was, until I arrived here. Now its just dust to ashes and ashes to dust." A chuckle escaped her lips. "But oh!..what a glorious Inn this used to be!" Leaning against the broom she grasped the top of its handle, her head titled as her eyes gazed down at the ancient fog, then slowly rolled back up to meet the groups stares. Her chapped lips stretched in a faint grin." I however, would dub this site a graveyard. For all the poor souls who have fallen at its doors. You know, I’d love to tell you more but I do have a mess to clean up. If anyone could just lend a hand.."

"Help? Umm.. I suppose I could.." a young woman dressed in an unbefitting white coat stepped forward.

"Good!" Gyira walked over to the woman with the green hair and grabbed her wrist, directing her to another door at the far end of the room, just at the side of the bar, camouflaged by dirt and dust. " I would really appreciate it if you hold this open for me." She motioned opening the door by its brass holder. A small gust of stale wind blew up from its dark hidden depths, which seemed to seep out in veins across its entrance.

"For some reason it always closes on me. It’s somewhat heavy and none of the furniture I have can keep it open. Just keep in place till I’m done." Leaving the woman by the door Gyira went back to the middle or the room and began to sweep the skulls in its direction. Tossing and tumbling across each other as they one did when they were alive, the skulls rolled past the open door and fell to the darkness below. Several seconds passed before the sound of their impact could be heard. Loud *clops* signified that there had been other skulls…. many, many other skulls piled at the bottom of the cellar floor long before. "I think it’s quite odd…that those little red nasties don’t bother to eat the heads." She sighed sweeping the last of the goblins remains into the cellar. " Its even more peculiar, since the….how should I put this?…Brains… of the victims they’ve eaten remain inside the head. It somewhat says something about them doesn’t it? Maybe they don’t like the taste."

Stopping she turned to the green haired woman. "You can let the door go now thank you."

Smiling vaguely Gyira walked back to the large counter, moving past the broken chairs and tables to her previous spot were she had first sat at the beginning of the day. She set down the bamboo broom and tucked back a strand of loose dull black hair, past her ear. Smiling ever still she leaned forward, propping her elbows on the long table, resting her worn face upon her hands. "Well now." She spoke. Her orange eyes moved over each face, searching for reactions, probing for thoughts.

"Now that I’ve done all of you a favor, its time that you pay me one in return."

Gyira watched the minotaur head for the door. He was bold, considering what had just happened in the in the Inn and looked like the type that answered to no one. nevertheless she wouldn’t just let him leave without a fight.

“You know that’s very selfish of you?” she sighed. Lifting her face from her hands, she stood strait up. “ Considering the fact that I just saved your life; and everyone’s in this tavern. And not particularity from those goblins…. but from the Imps. Those little red monsters would have made a meal out of you instead along with the goblins if I had not decided to intervene. The favor that I am asking is not just for me, but also for the lives of other future potential victims that will come waltzing into this accursed place. If you leave, you’ll be walking out on them. I know that I may not seem to be a sincere or trusting person. But even so, I’m asking you for this favor. I’m asking you and the others to help me!!”

Kylana watched the scene with detached interest. She was still a bit shaken by the encounter with the imps and goblins, and the minotaur's ire just increased the tension in the room.

She stepped between Gyria and Rue, her hand on the hilt of her shortsword. "Enough arguing. We owe it to this woman to help us out. She saved our lives twice over....would you just throw that away?"

Kylana marched up to the minotaur, standing boldly before him. Even at five foot nine, she still only reached the height of his chest, but she stood before him, bold and unafraid, a look of annoyance on her face. "Quit complaining like a little calf! I've spent the past week running nonstop from those goblins. Before I had the good fortune to find this inn, I spent two days with no sleep, no food, and no water. I had to push my horse so hard that she died on the trail. I've spent the last three days in bed with a fever that nearly killed me." At this she glanced over at Marc and favored him with a small smile. "I was lucky enough that I had someone unselfish enough to look after me. And here you are, whining like a baby cow that's lost his mamma! GROW UP!"

Satisfied with her speech, the half-Qualinesti elf turned toward Gyria. "What can we do to help you?"Peace and terror all in one, My future life has just begun.....

He had grown to respect the other races for what they could do but he still found them annoying and thought he was the better race. He looked down at the blood nosed man and kicked him aside.

Gyira smiled vaguely; at least the half elf had some sense. More that the agitated minatour. “Well at least one of you is willing to lend a hand.” She sighed folding her arms at her sides. The minatour had stopped at the door but only for a while. Gyira stared for a moment at Rue. “It would be in all of our best interests if you at least stayed to listen to what I had in mind.” Her gaze lingered down towards the floor were the primeval haze slept, small swirls of red wisped threw its gray cover. Looking back up at Rue and Kylana she spoke. “The situation here is more than it seems.” She stared past the two looking at the others.” The rest of you have been silent. Before I say anything, it would make things much easier to know for certain whether or not you are willing to oblige.” I dream of the night, I dream of the moon.

Gyria’s face turned into an angry scowl. “On second thought, I’ll just be blunt. I’m not really giving anyone options to leave or stay. I need your help and you’ll give it to me….or I’ll let those monstrous little beasts consume you! Right now I’m too desperate to let any of you go.” Pulling herself to full height, she walked over to the Minatour and slammed the entrance door. Bits of dry rotted wood and paint fell from the ceiling above as if offended by her sudden anger. Cautiously she glanced up at Rue as she marched back to the front of the counter to face the group. She breathed in, heaving a sigh. “ You trapped here.” She stated simply. “Not trapped meaning that you can’t step outside, but trapped meaning that the Bakkei, the red things you saw, will hunt you down, drag you back, and devour you.”

Silence.

Gyira quieted momentarily as if to choose her words. “ It’s happened countless times before to goblins and human alike, or any one else unlucky enough to fall prey.
I’m sorry to say that many people have died amidst the fangs of the Bakkei. Either because they did not answer my call for help or because they failed in attempts to assist. There is a way out though, for you, but not for me. Moreover, I will help you to escape if you succeed in helping me. If you do not, then well, you wont be the last bunch of skulls that I’ll have to sweep into the closet.”

Gyira's hands fumbled as the wolf spoke. Anger glowed undauntingly in its green eyes. With a nervous glance, she caught the Minatours infuriated expression. She wondered how long it would be before he would lose his temper and break her in half. “It won’t matter what might happen.” She thought. “I must use them for my purpose"
Clasping her hands behind her back, Gyira smiled vaguely. She attempted to focus her gaze on Sayia, away from Rue and Moro’s angry glares.
“Oh I'm glad that you are willing! This is the first step towards your freedom… and perhaps mine.” Her voice lowered a bit. “What I need from you is to retrieve, for me, an item. More of an artifact actually. Its square shaped-blue.”

Speaking up, Gyira drew her hands from behind her back and shaped an imaginary box in the air.
“ It opens with a steel latch in front and the top lid is curved like a chest, except it’s about so small.” She held her hand five inches from the bar table behind her.
“The outer rim has carved letters on it, in dwarven. You would think that it was crafted by dwarves if not for its simple design. On the bottom of the box in the very middle is another carving but much, much deeper, of a web within a circle.”
Gyira became a little anxious describing the item, she stared at her hands eagerly, her fingers grasped the air as if they were actually curled around the box she spoke of.
“I don’t know what material it is made of, but it …it feels like stone and is warm to the touch.” A slight smile stretched her lips. She looked up. “ The outside is nothing fancy really. It’s quite humble looking.” The smile faded. Slowly Gyira dropped her arms to her side and stood straight up. She hoped that this would be the last time she had to explain to anyone, what she wanted.

“A while away from this Inn is the old road, its south from here. It follows to the ruins of Pax Tharkas, somewhere near the coast were this ancient city meets the new sea is an underground temple. You will find it in a large clearing. Twin arched columns mark the spot. The columns are destroyed from the middle up; but the rest is intact and you will recognize their identical bases. The artifact is located in that temple. If you can bring back what I ask for, then you are free to go.”

Gyira turned and walked into the back kitchen, she swiftly returned with a scroll wrapped with a leather thong. Cautiously she stepped past Moro, taking care not to brush against the large wolf. Standing in front of the group Gyira held the scroll up.

“ This is a map of the temple. It is much like a labyrinth inside and you will need it in order to find your way out. Sadly it does not show the location of the box, but I am sure that you’ll have no trouble finding it.” She stretched her arms out farther.

Moro snorted and met Saiya's placid gaze. "foolish quest...but if we must we must..." the huge wolf growled as Saiya climbed onto her back.

"when do we go?" Saiya asked softly, her short silver hair covered her eyes as she asked the question. the crystals and white feathers glinted and chimed softly in the gentle breeze that ran rampant suddenly within the inn.

Why do you do this Mistress? you can free everyone here in an instant?

Saiya rested her hand on Moro's head Because, I choose to see how these mortals will find their way out of this... she sent back, her emerald eyes betraying nothing of their silent communication.Deep in the night the wind blows cold, and in a Heartbeat the fear takes hold. Deep in the storm there's a place that's soft and still, where a road waits to be taken if you only will. The voices inside you can lead you so astray. Belive in what you dream don't turn away.
