Another RP! and this time, dont ruin it please. It takes me a bit of time to think of whats going to happen...err...you know what i mean.
~IC~

Xreona ran down the streets, laughing. The fat guard that was chasing her had stopped some time ago, panting for breath. She pulled her hand out of a single pouch and looked fondly at her stolen prize. It was a silver rattlesnake, with rubies for eyes and diamonds for the fangs in the open mouth. The rattles were sapphires. She was highly impressed by it, and put it back in the pouch.

"THERE SHE IS!!! GET HER!"

Xreona turned around quickly and saw two knights in much better shape running. SHe sprinted off into the crowd of the marketplace.

"STOP! THEIF! KENDER!"

She wheeled suddenly and scowled. If there was one thing she didnt like, it was being called a kender.

"I am not a kender! I am HUMAN! GET IT STRAIGHT!"

The two knights stopped in their tracks. They looked at the 12 year old girl in front of them, yelling like a mother. "Uh..excuse me?"

She pointed a finger at them. "I am NOT a kender!!!!"

THey looked at eachother, and one of them grabbed the girl. "Give that back!"

She grinned at them. With the agility of a cat, she dug her long nails into his hand and bit down on his fingers. He dropped her at that, and she ran like hell.

OOC: You like? Lesse, we need an antagonist, preferably a mage whos artifact that was, and a couple of friends. The Mage has to be black or red robed. That's all i'm saying.

Geiren paced back and forth, his black robes swishing with the movement of his legs. His eyes glittered blood red, similar to the red runes running down the sleeves of his robe. His fists clenched and unclenched, his teeth grinding.

His apprentice sat on a chair in the corner, frightened and worried.

"DAMN YOU, TEREN! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO WATCH THAT ARTIFACT!", Geiren yelled at his apprentice. Teren flinched and squirmed in his chair.

"My apologies, master. I had only meant to leave just for a few minutes, I..."

"I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE NOT TO LEAVE THAT SPOT UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES, UNLESS I SAY YOU CAN! TO THINK, A LITTLE GIRL GETTING BY THE GUARDS AND STEALING IT! A LITTLE GIRL!", the black robed mage screamed.

"But...!"

"GET OUT OF MY SIGHT, FOOL! I WILL BE SURE TO GIVE YOU A SEVERE PUNISHMENT!"

Teren's eyes widened, knowing exactly what that meant. He stood shakily, staring at his master, then wildly ran out of the room screaming, only to be burst into flames in the hallway. A few seconds later, and there was a pile of charred bones on the ground. A servant quickly cleaned it up, with a calm face.

A man glanced distainfully down at the servant scurrying away with the ashes and bones. That's the second this year... the third, perhaps? Without a second look, he swept by, his red cloak dusting away the last of the remains.

Whirling to a stop just outside of the wizard's door, he leaned casually against the wall, letting his cloak float to a stop over his black leather armor. The fabric concealed the pouches, daggers, and other implements of his trade that he kept there so well that no observer would see the slightest object under it. He stared past a stray lock of black hair that had dropped in front of one of his ice blue eyes, waiting for the mage.

After a moment, he felt a familiar tug and was pulled bodily into the room by an unseen force. The wizard's voice was still full of malice, "And you! Why can't you ever knock and come in!?"

Sederas allowed himself a slight smile as the wizard set him down. His voice was a calm and conversational as Geiren's was enraged. "You always seem to prefer your way of inviting me in.

"I heard about your... problem. I know I'm expensive, Geiren, but I would have thought you'd tire of these little thefts by now. You know that's it's because the people whose fees you're willing to pay are pathetic.

"But for the moment, that's irrelvant. Do you want me to find your precious trinket or not?""Eyes that fire and sword have seen,
and horrors in the halls of stone,
shall look at last on meadows green,
and trees and hills they long have known."

OOC: Um, Sylvan, my mage's name is Geiren. Teren was the guy who was turned into ashes. Sorry if that conversation confused you. :D

BIC: Geiren breathed slowly, his rage calming down. The fire in his eye's faded, and the runes on his sleeves seemed to dim.

"Sederas, Sederas... How did you come to know this by now? Is word out on the streets? I really could not use this right now...", Geiren said, "Or have you been spying on me?"

The mage then took off his hood, letting his white hair fall to his shoulders, over his pointed ears. He pushed his hand through his hair in thought.

"Alright, then. I need you to find this artifact of mine. I would expect you knew what it looked like, you seem to know everything here. But, I also need you to do something else...", he muttered.

Sederas looked at Geiren with those cold eyes, calmness over his face, like always.

Geiren glared at him, then sighed. "You will kill the girl..."''may the fleas of a thousand reindeers rest upon your genitals''

Jury sat back, her long auburn hair braided in a thick coil that hung to the middle of her back. She wore dark, somber colors, black, blues and greens... Her outer tunic had several concealing locations, and each had at least one dagger within. She had laid several coins on the table, and was quickly brought a mug of ale and a bowl of the stew.

She looked up as she heard shouting outside, and stood up to see what was going on. She watched out the open window as the girl ran from the knights, and wondered where she was going.I'll be right there

IC:

Geiren glared at him, then sighed. "You will kill the girl..."


The tall man shrugged nonchelantly. "If it makes you happy I can make that happen. The price will end up a little higher of course, but considering her age it shouldn't be a major issue." From within his cloak, Sederas produced a small sheet of parchment and proffered it to the mage with a wicked grin.

As a mercenary of unparalleled skill, Sederas had many trademarks, but his most famous was his contract style. Every employer he had ever worked for had given him a drop of blood on a blank sheet. Sederas would vanish, complete his mission, and reappear, naming his price at the end of his duties. There were rumours that no client had ever been displeased by his services. There were other rumors that said that no client whom he had failed had lived very long."Eyes that fire and sword have seen,

Geiren calmly took out a dagger, then made a small cut on the tip of his index finger and put a drop of blood on the paper, which then magically formed into his signature. The mage smiled at this.

He had known this man was skilled, and that he rarely ever fails his jobs, but there was something about this girl. Something...

"Be quick, Sederas. I would rather have this artifact, and the girl's scalp, in my hands in two nights after this. If not... well lets just stay I will not only be going after her..."''may the fleas of a thousand reindeers rest upon your genitals''

Jury had stepped outside of the tavern, the sun playing with the auburn hilights in her hair. Her green eyes watched the girl dissapear into the crowd, and she looked up.

Miki cawed and tilted his head to stare back at Jury. The crow cawed again.

Follow her Jury sent, and the crow dived low to the ground, then climbed high, following Xreona.

Jury turned, and walked straight into one of the Guards. He stood there, arms crossed, glowering down at her. "well, well. If it isn't the Black Phoenix....you have some nerve showing your face here." He growled, as he grabbed her wrist in a painful grip. He twisted her arm up, and she blanched with the sudden sharp pain. "I'm watching you." He sneered.

"Let go." She said, her voice velvet wrapped steel. His grip tightened, and her eyes narrowed in instant concentration.

The calling card that always startled the guard away from the area that she was in, surrounded the Guard's hand. The black flames, shaded from deepest black to palest grey, gave no heat, nor consumed his flesh. With a startled gasp, he let go.

He stared at his hand in astonishment...the flames had vanished when he let go of Jury's wrist. His eyes narrowed and he looked up.

Jury was gone.

He looked up and down the street frantically, and Jury struggled not to laugh. Her dark cloak kept her nearly invisible in the shadow of the Alley. She watched him look for her, then become lost in the crowd. "He'll never learn..." She laughed, and then moved into the crowd herself, following the crow.

OOC: I'd like to join in this if you dont mind.


IC: Dallas stood on the roof of a building. He was a man in his twenties. However, he looked very aged. He had a long brown hair and a beard to match. His baggy patched up pants revealed his years of poverty. Dallas gained a his reputation of being a crazy bum when he started running around naked in town square and shouting out protests. All his life he fought for the rights of the poor. He was extremely strong, though his frail body doesnt look it.

Dallas looked down and saw a little girl being chased by the city knights. He rooted her on as she got past one of the guards. He got nervous when she was caught, but sighed in relief when she bit the knight and got away. Dallas laughed.

" Good girl." The bum mumbled to himself. Now it was his turn. After all it was friday noon. This was the weekly protest time for Dallas.

The bum took a stick he found on the roof. He then jumped off the tall building, unexpectadly catching a long clothes line with the stick. He held onto both end and began zip-lining down to the street below. He came in fast and when he was close enough, he gave the bitten knight a kick in the back. Dallas let go of the stick and flew to the stone road. It didnt hurt much, he did this every week and has grown used to pain.

All the townspeople gathered around to watch the scene. They found much enjoyment in watching the crazy bum fight the guards off.

Dallas ran around in circles shouting.

" The alleyways of these streets make this city!" Dallas shouted as he kicked a guard in the groin. He never killed any of them, just brought them great pain.

Dallas ran as the bitten knight recovered. He never liked fighting the knights. The crowd laughed and cheered. They began chanting Dallas' name.

Dallas saw the little girl ahead of him as he ran.

" Hey there! Dont worry the guards are gone! Let me see what you stole!" Dallas shouted to the girl. He was very excited. Theives were his favorite people in this town. They always stole from the rich, which was good in Dallas' point of view.If your expecting a kick in the balls and you get a slap in the face, its a victory!

OOC: NO worries, guys. SOrry for the delay, i was in Hawaii.

IC:

Xerona looked at the man standing in front of her suspicisoly. "Hmm....I dont know...You wont steal it, will you?"

SHe giggles childishly, once again revealing that she's only a little girl. Before he answers, she heard a twig crack and immediatly cocked her head that way. PUtting the stolen artifact away, she moves over the the spot, quiet and lithe as a... (OOC:...umm...) something very quiet and lithe.(OOC: what's quiet and lithe?)

SHe notices another step in the stone road. Immediatly, her faces hardens, and the little girl dissapears only to reveal a theif that is one of the best in the world.

"I'd show you," SHe says to the man, her voice serious, "But i might get caught or killed." With that, she scrambles off, the only sound heard is teh shocked man's breathing. Her voice again, seemingly comes from everywhere. "After all, i'm only a street rat."

Only glancing at the black bird that was tailing her, she memorized it's appearance, and ran off into the crowd. Half of them, noticing her short stance and lots of pouches automattically assumed she was a kender, and made a path. Swearing, she ran down teh empty street.

Senderas sweared. She had noticed him.

Xreona took the split second to look behind her. She counted 1...2...3..., two girls and that twig cracking guy. Noticing that both girls had smiles, she ran into the nearest tavern.

"What in the Abyss is a girl doing here??" a warrior whispered
"Is she allowed to drink?" A dwarf asked
"What's in her pouches?" Asked a curious mage
"Hey! A KENDER! I'm Toehead Hornfoot!" Yelled the local kender (ooc: LOL!!! LMAO!)

Xreona promptly punched the kender in the face for calling her a kender and immediatly hid behind the bar. The two girls werent far behind.

IC: The matronly woman behind the bar of the tavern stared down at the small girl who joined her and promptly hid from view. The woman crouched and stared at her for a long, silent moment.

"Little one..." she muttered, her voice was as coarse as her rough hands had become from work, and yet at the same time as gentle as a morning breeze. "I don't know why you're hiding, but you might want to use a little more caution, eh?" She grinned a bit and stood upright again, giving looks of death to any who attempted to ome behind the bar.~Shade and sweet water~

02/05/2003 8:52 PM

The woman smiled down at the girl and nods gently, whispering back.

"Of course I won't tell darling." She glances at the statue and raises an eyebrow delicately. She looks at it carefully, something about it.... "Where did you get that little one? Is that why there are people after you?" She motioned for her eldest daughter to come and take over the working of the main bar and leads the small girl out into the kitchen through a swinging door.~Shade and sweet water~
