"Accck, you doorknob of a kender, 'careful wit that hammer."

"Sorry Wedge. It slipped."

"Slipped you say?!?!? Nay, 'ay knew ye did that on purpose!"

"I said I'm sorry!"

You were walking down the street and around a corner when you see the strangest sight you have ever seen. A dwarf balancing a kender on his shoulder as the kender hammered into place a sign. All along the alleyway to the far end, (where there stood the doorway of a disreputable tavern), was a long line of gnomes, dwarves, and >gasp I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

OOC: I'll join just let me think of which character I should use. And 1 Q: Do I have to be a gnome, kender, or dwarf. Its fine if yes but I just wanted to know. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

OOC; I'm in for definate, but same question as above, do I have to be a Dwarf, Gnome or Kender charecter?"Ah, they have a cave troll....."

07/23/2002 2:21 PM

OOC: Same question as the two above...I'm trying to decide whether to use my kender character Kylie Tusslemop or be different and use my half elf, Kylana Starglow and her kender companion Amburrtail- Kylana is quite fond of kender, after all.

OOC: GAAAAH!!! You can use anyone, even your kitchen sink. LOL! Kenders and their friends are always welcomed in this thread :D :D :D I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

"I'm telling you Kylana, this is the best inn in town! Tavern brawls, renegade mages, mercenaries...you name it, they've got it! And its real cheap to stay in for the night!"

"I don't know Amburrtail," the half-elf female said. "This inn doesn't sound like a great place. The woods charge us nothing to sleep in them."

Amburrtail frowned, her mahogany topknot drooping seemingly in sadness. "Aw, come on! You never want to have any fun! Come on, its right around this corner...."

Kylana and Amburrtail rounded the corner into a small alley...and ran smack into a crowd of gnomes, dwarves, and kender. Kylana quickly gathered her pack and money pouch and held them high above her head. Standing at 5'9", extremely tall for a half elf, she was almost twice the height of the assembled crowd.

"My goodness!" she exclaimed. "Since when do dwarves, gnomes, and kender convene in the same place? Gnomes don't like to leave their inventions behind, kender would get bored and wander off, and dwarves won't have anything to do with the other two."

Amburrtail's eyes were wide with wonder. "Wow! Look at all the kender! I wonder what they have in their pouches!"

The mismatched twosome were immediately set upon by a large crowd of kender, all of whom remarked at Kylana's height, fondled her short sword, plucked the string of her bow, and wanted to know what Amburrtail had in her pouches.

Kylana left Amburrtail to her newfound friends, who were all passing around balls of string, shiny rocks, pieces of colored glass, and a fine ring or two. The half-elf walked over to where most of the crowd was gathered, and she couldn't help but giggle at the sight. A kender was sitting on the shoulders of a sputtering, angry dwarf, trying to hammer a notice onto the wall.

"Excuse me," Kylana said, tapping the kender on the shoulder. “What is this ‘miraculous ale barrel’ that you are looking for?”Peace and terror all in one, My future life has just begun.....

The kitchen sink wandered around the corner, amazed to see such a congregation of Kender. Then, without warning a rather large foot landed on top of it, crushing it into porcelain dust. The foot belonged to a Minotaur, and a very big one at that. Looking decidedly out of place among the comparitevly tiny Kender he walked past the the sound of a dwarf swearing. After a few more steps he noticed and incesant yammering in his ears, on closer inspection it turned out to be a Kender, the collar of it's shirt hooked on one of the Minotaur's massive horns. The Minotaur removed the Kender, the looked at the sign it had held,

"What the heck? Bottomless Keg of...... Are you people ins....wait, stupid question. It is an....interesting goal though.""Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Gaia looked up as she wondered along, and was more than surprised to see a large Swallow trying desperately to fly with a coconut held between it's claws. The swallow gave up after the second flap and landed exhausted in a pile of fine white dust that lay on the floor, the coconut making a small mushroom shaped cloud as it fell.

The cleric of Mishkail looked around her, wondering where she had ended up. She was more than surprised to see a large gathering of kender, gnomes and..........dwarfs?! All of them yammering about a "bottomless keg of ale"?! A group of kender saw her, and noticed the pouches she kept hung around her waist in true kender style, aswell as the large sized hoopak she carried at her side. Time spent traveling with kender, especially her best kender friend, Taylor Magetaunter, had caused quite a few kenderisims to rub off on her. The kenders, seeing a large friend in the young cleric, rushed over to her and began to yibber about this and that and nothing in particular.

"What have you got in your pouches?"

"Where did you get that big hoopak from?"

"Can you do some cleric magic on me, my topknot has gone lank and lost it's lustre!"

"Then try washing it you stupid doorknob!" came the loud retort as the said kender was pushed out of the way by a female dwarf, her grey hair swinging in it's sensible pony tail with annoyance as her heavily booted feet clomped her way over to the overcome Gaia.

"If they continues to bother you lass, just kick 'em in the backside, always works for me!" said the dwarf jovially, demonstrating her refined technique on a kender that was trying to look in one of Gaia's pouches. The kender thought that, although a bit rude, being kicked up the backside was a lot of fun, and propmtly came back for another, if you would be so kind Misstress Dwarf!

"Oh, don't worry Misstress, they weren't bother.........." Gaia tried to interject.

"Get out of it you stupid doorknob!" the dwarf said, shoving the kender to one side and extending a small, callused hand towards Gaia.

"My name is Hagather Rockbreaker, pleased to meet you!"

Gaia took her hand and smiled warmly as she shook it. "I'm Gaia, and I'm a cleric of Mishkail, glad to make your aquaintance! Now what is this about......"

"A bottomless keg of ale?" Hagather finished, "I don't know lass, but I wouldn't mind finding it myself, that I wouldn't!!!" she said, letting rip with a loud belly laugh that made her ruddy face turn a deeper shade of red. "It say's on that sign that we should speak to people called.....Biggs and Wedge.....strange names! And what, may I ask, are you doing with that oversized hoopak?"

Gaia was about to answer, but couldn't get a word in as Hagather had already gone on to the next converstaion. Well, she would have done if she could have started it................

"BIGGS! WEDGE!!!!!" she shouted, "I want to talk to a MASTER BIGGS and a MASTER WEDGE! Where are you two, I can't see a bloody thing through all these kender! Get out of my way doorknob!" she added kicking another up the backside. Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

OOC: Looks like fun! :D


Shyiree stared curiously at the parchment “Hmmmmm....

"Adventures wanted. Must be willing to work for low wages. Plenty of adventuring opportunity. Treasures and items galore. In search for the miraculous 'Bottomless Keg of Ale'. Seek out Duncan Wedgedriver(Wedge) or associate Rollando Biggsby(Biggs)."

Treasures and items galore! Those words jumped right out of the parchment and danced around her head. Treasure! Glorious treasure. "Ohhh think of what nice things I could buy for myself!" she quivered clasping her hands together in delight. "A fine tailored cape, a pair of beautifully soft deer skin boots, a mini toy action gnome flinger complete with gnome for my gnomes N'ventions collection!" Thoughts of collectable action figures and fine clothing were enough to convince Shyiree that this adventure was well worth her time. Especially with the lure of riches and rare items. Being skillful rouge herself, she was already equipped with the best traveling cloths and carrying packs that stolen money could buy. Moreover, from the looks of her attire one could safely assume that she was indeed an expert at her trade.

Double knotting her pouches and securing her sack the half elf ventured into the crowd of kender’s and dwarves. She knew well enough not to leave her items unattended to with kender’s walking around. Though she had her things, all tied up in a bundle she made sure to cast a small spell of protection, just to be safe. One could never be too sure. Even if they were a professional thief. Stepping quickly between the activity of the crowd she made her way along the alleyway to the side of the Inn, were a kender and dwarf were arguing. From the names they called each other in their quarrel, Shyriee was sure that these two were the ones who had posted the sign.
"S’cuse me?" she gently tapped the dwarves shoulder. "I saw the parchment that you posted back there and was wondering what your requirements were. My name is Shyiree Nimblewind and I would like to sign up for your adventure!"
I dream of the night, I dream of the moon.
I woke from this sleep, but far much to soon.

OOC: I wonder how Biggs and Wedge will decide who to bring? Hmmmm.....ah...no.....ummmmm......Yeah....no. Blast it I don't kow which character to use! I'll decied later but count on being joining by tomarrow. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

The dwarf's eyes swelled at the sight of the people (specially the minotaur) that congregated in front of the tavern. Signaling to Biggs he motioned all those interested inside. After a few minutes of scufling, tossing and either manhandling some of the kenders out of the tavern (wherein Biggs was also occasionally thrown out by Wedge, "Ti''s only an accident, he wasn't truly intending to throw me out like that," said Biggs as he made his way inside again), the red faced dwarf finally cleared the inside of the tavern. There were also several other kenders left, a handful of gnomes and a few hill dwarves along for the adventure. I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

Hagather dragged Gaia over to a couple of chairs, Gaia'a hoopak flaying round her head wildly through the force of the dwarfs' tug. The two sat down, (Hagather with an intended thump, Gaia with a shocked how-did-I-get-here thump).

The dwarf looked around her and studied the rest of the occupants with interest. Then she came upon the minotaur. "What's a Minotaur doing in a place like this, surrounded by kender?" she asked, a guffaw on the edge of her lips at the thought of a kender loving minotaur.

Gaia also took in her surroundings, and smiled once her gaze lighted on Biggs and Wedge, "So, masters Biggs and Wedge, what is this adventure you are proposing and when do we start?!" she asked, her voice loud and clear.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!
Winston: I hate Jello!
Venkman: Ah c'mon guys, there's always room for Jello!!!!!!

OOC: Oooh...to be a kender roleplayer again.

Wait, did I say that out loud?

*flees before someone recognizes him*That which is Joe's is given unto Joe. That which is not of Joe's shalt be given unto Joe. All that is, all that will be, shall be given unto Joe. For his is the hand that guides the world, and his is the heart that rules it.

The minotaur stomped in, stooping almost double to get inside the inn. He nodded to Mirror and sat down next to her.

"So you're back in circulation huh?"

Across the room there was a ferocious hiss and a huge snake slithered across the floor, a Kender hanging on to it's tail and yelling happy things about fairground rides. The snake flicked it's tail send the Kender flying across the room. The minotaur grinned,

"Knew they'd manage to 'find' the pouch with Vect in."

He looked at Hagather,

"Ah yes, my name is Terjon, and you would be?"

OOC;I'm assuming that this takes place after the 'Triplets' thread, so Terjon has met Mirror."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

07/26/2002 9:44 AM

OOC: Well seeing as how you guys don't have a gnome yet I shall use mine Smitly! and where would Smitly be without his crazy couterpart (not really) Jumper the kender.

IC: "Hey Smitly this sighn over here says that there is a bottomless ale barrel!"


"Yes really! I think we should join in on the adventure!"


"Yeah and...."

"OkayletsgofindthisBiggsandWedge." Smitly found that the entrence was too crowded so he decided that they should go through a window keeping Jumper out of sight so the wouldn't be there all night finding out what each other had in thier pouches. He pulled out his ten foot pole and stuck it in the ground. He then rumeged through Jumper's pouches to find several inmovable rods.

"After about ten minutes Smitly made a 'ladder' and the two went up and opened the window. They gathered their gear and jumped inside.

The two landed on the ground with a thud.

"Hullo, I'm Jumper Bango and this is Smitly! How do you do?" Jumper said as he extended his hand. "Do, or do not, there is no try' -Yoda "Empire Strikes Back"

OOC: cool i can use my charater lockjaw or should i use my gnome charater

a small axed wielding gnome goes on his daily walk and notices the crowd.
"wowhihowareyouguys!" "whyyouhere?"anadventurewowit'sbeen6yearssencemylastadventure." sayys pygmy all too fast so he waits in line almost being trampled by people.

once he got inside he hid his pouches (which were found quickly by a kender who found it by mistake.)"hmmmsurearelotsofpeople." and goes and sits on a chair."i'm not the light but the darkness in which surrounds it." - me

Wedge stroked his long black beared after getting rid of all the extra kender/gnomes/dwarf who where just nosing around.

"Ack, getting this place up and 'running 'gain wou'd add years to me. May Paladine have ye head Biggs!"

"Hey, at least we got what we wanted. We have our party again. And, who is that guy trying to run away? Hey!"

Biggs the kender immediately grabs Joe and gives him a hug.

"Uncle Joe!!! Hey everyone, this is Uncle Joe, who once travelled with my friend Mertonius, not actually travelled but, they were great friends right, uncle Joe? Is Uncle Mert with you right now? Really, Is he here? Hey, why are you squirming like that, wow, a new pouch, what is this, hey, this map looks exactly like my map to the bottomless keg, wow, there is even that pie splotch that Wedge spilled on after he dunked that beer over me last night. Amazing! I guess, I better keep this uncle, you might lose it."

"What is this world coming too???" Asked Wedge to the gods. "What 'ave I done to warrant this? WHYY???" I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc
