(OOC: Wow, it has been a while since I posted.)

Malion stood there in shock at the mess. The huge mirror before him had shattered. And worst yet, three of the peices had vainished.

The half-elven vampire couldn't believe, that this had happened again. He straigned up his coat nervously.

Why did the mirror have to break again? I might not be able to put it together again.

The Mirror the vampire stared at was called the Mirror of Eros. Using it, one could make a person fall hopelessly in love with whom ever they chose. Malion normaly used it to draw in his favorite source of food, young women. Young Maidens seemed to have fresher blood. But, the real pleasure was the game of manipulating their feelings with Mirror.

The one drawback was that the mirror had to be used sparingly. When used for an evil purpose, it would suffer increasing strain. And once again Malion had foolishly strained it to the breaking point.

He knew he had to find it. Not because it was his toy. The Mirror when broken could destroy the whole land. Malion had an idea where each piece would go, and he would no doubt have the power to regaine them, but there was one problem.

The broken peices of the mirror couldn't be touched by the likes of him. No, they could only be touched by someone untainted, someone who believed in the world.

"Servent!!" He shouted. A small, tired woman ran up the stairs.

"Y-yes, milord?" She said in a small voice.

"Get out a peice of pen and paper. Send out a summons for mighty warriors and wizards to appear. Send out as many as possible."

When I have a sufficent amount of canidates here, I will then test them to see if any are untainted. If I fail, both good and evil shall fall.

But, what are the chances of finding such a heart?

OOC: Sure has been a while Silver....hehe....anyway....i'm thinking of joining cause i have a new char that i want to use....yes yes....another one. But i was going to see if any others join in before i post an intro. He's a mental dominant. Basically he has the ability to dominate other people's minds. He cannot read thoughts, and using the ability gives him a whopper of a headache. The more trained the mind, the more difficult it is to dominate. For example, a mage will have a trained and intelligent mind, therefore making it more difficult to control. An ordinary human would not pose too much of a problem, but then there are those who may have a chance of resisting. Vampires, just soo you feel safe Silver, hehe, cannot be dominated, even half ones, they are very stubborn and it would take too much effort.

If the char sounds alright, i'll post an intro, and also if more people join in.Come see my site : http://pub63.ezboard.com/bthedream60488

In the bones of the earth does my mind lie secure,

OOC: I've been thinking about a vampire charecter myself - looks like this would be a good place to drop him in. If haveing another bloodsucker running around is ok by you that is Silver? I'll post IC if you give me the OK."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

OOC: Might as well post an intro....i can always change it if you want Silver.

IC: Pykrus moved along the road with a certain.....practiced....grace. His feet could moved swiftly when he wanted them to, but he never really had the need, nor the wish. Physical exertions often tired him, even at 26. He was more interested in exercising his mind. And what a mind he had.

Slightly long, dark hair fell across his eyes, reaching his shoulders. Deeply tanned skin shimmered in the moonlight. Piercing blue eyes darted to the corners of the soft, velvety blanket of the night. The darkness clouded around him, cloaking him in shadow.

He was not a secretive man by nature, infact, quite the opposite, particularly in his younger days, when the sun had kissed a less strained face. The pains of a decade marred his otherwise clear skin.

Someone jumped out from the underbush. "Freeze buddy.....had the purse over!". Bandits, he hated them....it was bandits that had killed his little Loture. Bringing his eyes to meet the man's, they took on an almost glazed look, hard as ice. "Fall to your knees." Pykrus pushed the man. He felt the sharp stab of pain at the front of his head as the bandit fell to his knees. "Take your knife.....and slit your throat.", he pushed, the pain came. The bandit drew his knife, and swiftly cut his own throat. As his last breath was drawn, Pykrus placed a hand over his own forehead and rubbed it firmly. He would have to rest a while. Sleep off the headache. Forcing people to kill themselves had always been one of the harder feats of Mental Dominance. Sighing a breath of regret, he pondered onwards.Come see my site : http://pub63.ezboard.com/bthedream60488

OOC: hehe...perfect...I have a character who is perfect for this :)

BIC: Ayeka reined in the black mare...NyteHart tossed her head and stood rock still as Ayeka slipped down from the saddle. She stared at the carnage before her...she had heard rumors of the Cursed being in this area...

she knelt down, her long silver-blonde hair falling loosely over her shoulders. Her Blue/Violet eyes swept the sceene...too much blood..

She rolled the bandit over, and noticed that the thoat was slashed, the knife was still loosely gripped in the man's hand...Ayeka sighed and stood, Shaking her head. she walked back to NyteHart and swung back up into the saddle...The large white wolf trotted over to her from the nearby treeline.

"Jennah...stay here..." she said softly...and the white wolf faded back into the forest. Ayeka turned the Mare's head and passed through the open gates of the town...For all those still in grievance for those events one year ago...
You are forever in my prayers....and always within my heart....
Love goes on....Blessed be.

A young vampire madien arrived shortly. " Hello Malion. I am Lady Aliaon. I have come to help you." she said, with a very enchanting voice. " Please, came rest your self. I will help you." She said, taking off her black cape, revealing a long, lacey dress. " Please , sit."" Let's Roll!" Todd Beamer, Flight 93

Pykrus entered the town. His head still ecohed with the pain, but it was less now. He needed a bit of rest, that was all. A flyer blew across his feet. Reaching down he picked it up, then held it towrds the torch light close by. An odd expression crossed his face. An smile almost. e stuffed the flyer into a pouch then proceeded to the nearest Inn.

Coming to it, he swung open the door, and headed for the Inn Keep. He seemed to be an honest looking man, open face and a sort of cheery smile. "What can i do fer ye......a room for the night, we got plenty.", Pykrus nodded, asking the price. "Two steel, they are mighty fine rooms sir, its a bargain for the room.", Again he nodded. Taking out two coppers, he pressed them into the man's hand. "Here are your two steel my friend....", he pushed, a little. The Inn Keep looked at the two copper, a look of confusion crossing his face. Pykrus pushed again, and the Inn Keep nodded.

"I'll have Lucy bring you dinner, you look to be a little hungry.", he put the copper into his waist pouch, and showed him to his room.Come see my site : http://pub63.ezboard.com/bthedream60488

Sitting at a table in the far corner of the Inn, was a young man of about 20. He had short slightly curly black hair, and deep twin orbs of black that resembled Nuitari for eyes. He was broad in the shoulders, with a slim waist and handsome features.
He was well built, that was sure. A good steel sword was strapped to his side, as well as a dagger on his chest and in his boot. Kethril was a mercanery, and a good swordsman. His skills were unmatched in duel, and his blade was as sharp as his wits.

Since he was young, he had been tought his sword skills by his father, a veteran to the War of the Lance. Now, he was out on his own, to find himself a cause to fight for. He had found himself in this town, where there was rumour of a feud between two great houses, and they would pay well for mercaneries of experience and skill.
But he was disappointed when he arrived, to find that the rumour was just that, a rumour. That was two days ago, and he had been here ever since. But little did he now, his life was about to take a turn, for better or for worse....

OOC:I'll follow DarkMaster's example.

IC: Maelus smiled enchantingly at the woman in front of him, she giggled slightly and hugged him close. Thus she didn't see his face as his jaw opened far wider that it should ever have been able, his canines growing long untill it seemed that he would not be able to close his mouth on them. Then he bit, his slanted eyes buried in her hair as he drained her of her very life. After a moment he tossed the womans corpse aside and threw his head back, blood flecking his long teeth and his mouth.

He looked around - the town was, as usual, pretty much deserted at this time. The vampire jumped, landing smoothly on the roof of the inn. His Brother was nearby - why did he make himself so darned hard to find? Their sister - physicaly weak by vampire standards but a powerful mentalist - had had another of her visons, something very very wrong. And something connected to that darned mirror of his........"Ah, they have a cave troll....."

Karlo held out his gloved hand as a black falcon landed smoothly on his protected wrist. In the falcons mouth was a small mouse on its way down.

" Tino, you lucky bastard! Your pigging out and i havent eaten in two days! We are going into town to get some dinner." Karlo got up from the stump he was sitting on. His bright red hair, shoulder length, was blowing in the windy night. The moon was bright and revealed the mans large beard. Karlo was a falconer who carried a sword and was an expert fighter with his sling. He wore no armor, just a long sleeved shirt for the cold night. He was a well built man. He taught Tino to assist him in fights. Tino did things like take the enemies weapons from them. He also had very sharp talons and used his sharp beak to tear the flesh from men.

The two made their way into town, recieving many strange looks. Not many falconers wandered in these parts. Karlo and Tino walked down the street and noticed lots of noise coming from a nearby inn.

Karlo entered the inn with Tino close to him. He got many threatening glances. He looked around and saw a man in the corner with a sword at his side.

" Hey Tino, maybe we can make a deal with that guy for dinner!" Karlo began pacing towards the man in the corner.If your expecting a kick in the balls and you get a slap in the face, its a victory!

(OOC: People posted!? Hurrray!! I guess I have to be checking at least once a day now.

All the characters are fine, including the vampires. I am a bit overwhelmed by all this.

Oh, some info on Malion.

Typical vampire, light brown hair, green eyes, tall, thin, dresses cool, is real handsome, blah, blah blah. Also real evil. Deserves to die, killer of thousands blah, blah.)

Malion looked at this intruder in annoyance. "Who are you? And what gives you the right to barge in here?" "There is no greater joy than to be reborn with every heartbeat." Belldandy.

" Hello my man!" Karlo sat himself in a chair across from the man at the table. "So, what does a guy have to do to get some food in this place?" The man remained silent. " Oh, i see. You dont make deals with strangers eh? I can fix that. Pleased to meet ya. The names Karlo, and this is my loyal falcon Tino. Who might you be?"

Pykrus ate his dinner in his room. He has always preferred to eat alone and in silence, people often disrupted that silence, but he was luck this night. Having finsihed it, he sighed slightly, strecthed then stood up. Opening the door he walked down the short hall, then turned to descend the stairs. A few glances were stolen his way, but no more. He carried no weapon that they could see.....his mind was his only weapon. Well....that and his useful fighting techniques....but he hadn't needed them in some time.

Entering the lounge area and spotting an empty table, he ordered a mug of ale and some cheese. He watched as the world went by him, the comings and goings of the people entering and leaving. He tried to eavesdrop in on as many conversations as he could, but the general noise was slightly to much.

The look in Malion's eyes was one of pure disgust. Then it turned into amused arrogance.

"Empress who rules all the vampires I know? I am afraid we don't get much news out here in the "boonies" as you would call them. Plus if you are what you say you are, you would know that it is stupid to dispatch a whole army."

He walked over to a cabinet and pulled out a bottle full of red liquid. On the bottle hung a black ribbon.

"Plus, I have no interest in any politics of vampirekind or in dominating all of mortalkind. I merely made a mistake that could destroy the world and wish to stop it. Not out of compassion, but because I don't want to be destroyed, especailly by something I did."

He uncorked the bottle and took a long drink from it.

"Now tell me why I should even consider any help from you.""There is no greater joy than to be reborn with every heartbeat." Belldandy.

Ayeka teathered NyteHart to a post, making sure that the mare could tug loose if she needed to. She belted her sword and walked into the tavern. She kept her cloak up, it's deep midnight blue color made her golden hair gleam even more golden.

She signaled to the barmaid and handed the woman five steel pieces....and was rewareded with a bowl of stew, a glass of wine, and a room key. She sipped at the wine, slipped the room key with the number 3 engraved on it into her pocket, while she settled down in a chair in a far corner of the room, content to have her back against the wall....

Jennah...this place is crawling with the Cursed.... she sent to the huge wolf...She heard Jennah's mental howl ripple through the mental link she teneded to call the PackSong...They are too close to you...I come The link thickened....and Ayeka sent a sharp NO! And the wolfs mind retreated back somewhat while Ayeka's blue/violet eyes searched the room, a pale gold tint glinting when the light hit them just right.For all those still in grievance for those events one year ago...

Pykrus was growing anxious.....he had tried pushing several minds in the tavern....he hadn't been able to penetrate them.....some to a lesser degree, others greaters, and all of them seemed to leave a taste of Iron in his mouth....save one....the woman...sitting by herself. He watched her, there was something drawing about her....he could almost see the threads of a mental power drifting around her head.....

He stood up and walked over to her.Come see my site : http://pub63.ezboard.com/bthedream60488

"Of course I wan't blood. But, on my own terms." He chuckled.

"You are quite amusing Miss. Or is Lady? Or Empress? I never seem to know what to do with royalty. Its such a bother actually.

Yes, I have broken my mirror. But, it awes me that you know of it. One would have to be very old to even be able to sense the mirror. I thought the only ones who knew about it were me and an old "ally."

He took another long pull of the bottle.

"So tell me exactly what it is you want and how you will aid me."

"Well, I don't know about that. 2000 years ago I was involved in the Empire. Though I don't remeber if we called it that. But, I quit because I found the shifts in power too fickle.

One moment your someones favorite, the next moment they will do anything to destroy you. You have to constantly work to keep that power. I have found that it is better to devote your energies towards pleasure then power.

Oh, I am not defying you. I just don't want to get into that battle."

He looked annoyed once again.

"Besides, you have reminded me why I hate all our kind and most mortals. Something is on the loose which could destroy us all good or evil. But, you care more about your petty alliances.""There is no greater joy than to be reborn with every heartbeat." Belldandy.

Ayeka felt slightly sick with the proximity of all the Cursed ones within this place...she sipped wearily at the wine, in hopes to hide her queasyness.

She glanced up and saw someone heading her way...and she quickly looked away...Human...with a spark of power....

Wrong place to be...this place meant death for any Human.... she thought absently as she sipped her at the wine once more, her twilight colored eyes drifted back to the stranger...her curiosity dragging her mind, and her eyes back to him...kicking and screaming....or was it actually her curiosity...???

She shook her head sharply and stared at the man in shock...and stood, her eyes locked to his...peircing and questioning... without a single word, she snagged the man's arm, and dragged him outside....loath to speak her own name within that place.

Once outside, she spun on him. "who the Hell are you??? and what was that all about in there???" she hissed, her eyes taking on the gold cast of her ancestry.For all those still in grievance for those events one year ago...

He looked down at the hand holding his arm. "Let me go Lady.....", he pushed for all the good it did....he could feel himself slipping in through the tight cracks, pushing his way in. This one wasn't as hard to penetrate, but i took a damned lot of effort, he could feel the ecoh already humming at the back. He would pay for this effort

Maelus could smell humans in high numbers in the tavern below him - though they had a strange tinge to them - prahaps Malion had Ethralled them. No vampire ever Turned large numbers of people, not for at least a thousand years. Unless you counted the 'empire' as they called themselves - a rag-tag group of too-young vampires between Lordtony and Houlden, a distance barely enough for the territory of a vampire of Maelus age. They were young upstarts, but nothing to worry the old ones like Maelus, they frequently decimated thier already meagre ranks with wars for leadership - and they were not careful enough in thier feeding, witch hunters were starting to head towards the area.

Ah! Two humans had just left and were standing outside the inn door. Maelus crouched, extended his fangs and leapt down at the unsuspecting couple.

Then a familiar scent caught his attention - Malion!

The prey forgotten, Maelus exploded into a cloud of mist and sped off towards his half-brother's Airie. The two humans oblivous to the Change occuring not a foot above thier heads, and unwitting as to thier brush with death."Ah, they have a cave troll....."

OOC: Im not gonna wait at a table for more than three f-ing days for a reply. Dark Sage where are you?

IC: Karlo got up from his seat taking Tino with him. He walked over to the man behind the bar and asked for a pint of beer. The town was greatly entertained by him. He had weekly shows at the field, where Tino would perform great tricks and he would teach the people about falconry. He got many greetings and kind comments at the bar. People in the inn threw chips up in the air for Tino to catch. In the midst of the excitement, Karlo noticed a man and woman leave the inn.

" Hmmm......Come on Tino, Its time to leave!" The hawk swiftly landed on Karlo's extended arm. Karlo walked towards the strangers.If your expecting a kick in the balls and you get a slap in the face, its a victory!
