There is a pub in the fair city of Palanthas.

There is a window in that pub.

There is a sign on that window.

It reads:

The Death of the Gods...

The Gods have left, but why? Because they had no choice. To contact one who knows the details of their disappearance-

The bottom of the sign has been torn off.

The pub is called

Armeathes Arms.

It is open and doing business. There are about 30 customers currently patroning the premises.

WELCOME

*A figure falls from the rafters in the ceiling. A customer falls down dead with a dagger sticking out of his throat. Hooded stands and stretches, making it apparrent he's been hiding for some time. Walking over to the bar, Hooded walks to the bartender.*

"So who do I speak to about the god's disappearance." Hooded asks in his usual rude unfriendly tone.

A man sitting alone in the corner looks up when he recognizes a voice. He is clad in a brown robe with a silver cloak over that. He takes note of the two visitors and the goes back to his book.

*An elf sitting next to the man who just died wipes a splash blood from his well worn travel cloak, and gives Hooded a dangerous glare, his pointy ears twitching in agitation.

You should try to be a little bit cleaner about such buisiness...the elf says casually, as he gets up and walks towards Hooded. He nods at the man in the silver cloak and gives the kender a suspicious look as he tightens his money pouch to his belt.

"I couldn't help but overhear your question." The elf says to Hooded. "Where have they gone indeed...?"

Leana Nightbreeze slips quietly in unnoticed.

"That's a question I would LOVE to know the answer to," she sings. Noticing Hooded she smiles a charming, wicked smile.

"Oh, this could be SOO interesting."

*Hooded does his best to ignore the kender. A hand reflexively rests on his money pouch. Hooded takes note of the brown robe reading a book and turns to scowl at the elf. Offended at having his stabbing technique critisized.*

"I have come here to find answers." Hooded says to Fireflame.

*Turning to see Leana, Hooded feigns shock.*

"So... we cross paths again Nightbreeze. How did you survive this time? I thought you were dead?"

The brown robe looks up again at the new commotion. He recognizes more faces and sees a couple new ones. He flips through the book to the middle, makes a note of something, looks up again, and then goes back to reading where he was before.

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/04/2000 12:39 PM

"Oh, I have my suttle little ways of getting around," Leana says slowly.

"What brings you here, Master of Darkness?" she asks in mock reverance.

08/04/2000 5:19 PM

*Hooded's upper lip curls reflexively into a sneer at the mocking statement.*

"Business." Replies Hooded coolly.

"How interesting."

08/05/2000 9:32 PM

*Hooded looks around the tavern again. The brown robe at his table seems familiar. Hooded can't quite place the face however. Turning back to Leana.*

"We're probably here for the same purpose. I came to find out about the old gods."

Indeed, that is why I'm here. Well, and of course I came for the adventure.

Kit smiles to herself.

"The Old gods... ask him, I believe he may have some ideas..."

She points to the brown robe sitting in the corner reading.

The_Thorn
08/08/2000 11:48 AM

The man in brown senses something and glances up. He notices that someone is pointing at him and many people are staring his way. He casually marks the book he was reading and closes it. He then reclines back in his chair to wait for the inevitable.

The_Hooded_One
08/09/2000 3:07 AM

*Hooded regards Kit for a moment and turns to the brown robed figure. Walking over to his table, Hooded sits down uninvited and pauses theatrically before talking.*

"What news of the old gods?" asks Hooded.

"There is plenty of news of the old gods. But I don't believe that's the question you really want to ask me, is it?" asks the man in brown.

The_Hooded_One
08/10/2000 4:33 AM

"Enough! I didn't come here to play verbal musical chairs." Hooded spits angrily and snaps his fingers, causing his dagger to appear immediately into tight grip. "Eeny, meeny, miny mo." Hooded says and walks towards Kit. Deciding to satisfy his frustration by killing someone.

The Thorn hold up his hand, stopping the dagger in mid flight. He rotates his arm causing the dagger to spin. It picks up more and more spped, becoming and blur. The mage then points to the wall behind the bar. The Thorn makes several sweeping gestures with his hand and the dagger starts to carve something in the wall.

Several words appear, then several more. Finally the dagger finishes it's sentence, drilling itself itno the wall at the bottom of a question mark.

Why does everyone believe the gods have left? is what it reads.

Fireflame
08/10/2000 1:17 PM

"Well put", says the elf as he approaches the table, carefully stepping over the pile of wood shavings from the wall.

He sits down opposite the brown robe and chuckles silently to himself at the apparently very agitated Hooded one. Thinking to himself that he can almost see the red haze clouding over his eyes in a viscious battle rage...

The elf introduces himself as Qualensife to the brown robed mage. "My closer freinds used to call me Qualen..." his scentence trails off, hinting at a dark and dreadful past...

He gestures over at Hooded and leans in closer to the brown robe; "He should learn to control that temper of his." he whispers.

Kitiara2
08/10/2000 3:44 PM

Kit smiles.

"Yes he should... I'm not in too good a mood at the moment Big Fella. Cool it or get out..."

She turns to the brown robe.

"Will you tell me? I was told you would come by one wearing a ring of gold and obsidian."

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/10/2000 7:57 PM

A ring of gold and obsidian?

*Leana comes to sit close to her master*

You knew about? Typical. You search for years and the answer's right under nose the entire time...

The_Thorn
08/11/2000 8:58 AM

"The ring of gold and obsidian, that would be my former master Kirstar. She trained me and when she left our plane I took over her role as head of our order," says the mage. Turns to Qualen,"my name is the Thorn, and this is my apprentice Leana" (waves to the mage sitting next to him). Turns to explain to the group, "the gods are not gone. They have taken a new form. That is how I can still cast my spells. I draw on the power from the three gods of magic. The gods are here on Krynn. That is what I have been doing lately, journeying around and observing people. I believe that some of the gods do not know who they are, or have mistaken who they are. I have been trying to identify them. I believe I may have found one but I'm not certain."

The_Hooded_One
08/11/2000 7:09 PM

*Hooded hisses at Kit.*

"Make me leave sword-wench." Hooded says with a dismissive wave and turns to Thorn. "Interesting, the gods in disguise, who is this suspect god?"

"You mean to say that the gods are roaming the world now, but can't remember who they are?" asks Qualen. "How did they come to be thrown out of the heavens? And if they were thrown down, who now reigns?"

He looks over at Leana, and is comforted by her confident disposition. He smiles at her as he looks her over carefully, admiring every inch of her exquisitely beautiful frame.

The_Thorn
08/12/2000 9:34 PM

"Another fellow mage has discovered that the time lines and cosmos have aligned, allowing being, including gods, to travel from plane to plane," explains the Thorn. "I believe that their natural affinity with our plane would lead them back here. As to answer your question oh hooded one, I believe the god in question is the one known as Pyranthas."

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/13/2000 8:21 PM

Pyranthas...

*Leana tries to focus on what she's heard about the...dragon, was it? Her eyes move back to Qualensife, her thoughts shifting from the elusive gods to the more firm figure in front of her*

Kitiara2
08/13/2000 8:38 PM

Well that makes you...a renegade. And you draw on three moons... as would a mage of takhisis... A mage of the thorn...

*Kit's voice fades to a whisper. She looks at hooded*

Oh, where have you been?

The_Hooded_One
08/14/2000 4:15 AM

*Looks at Kit.*

"What?"

*Turns to Thorn.*

"Who is this Pyranthas?"

*Leana glances again at Qualensife*

Do you know anything about him? I can't say I do...

The_Thorn
08/14/2000 12:07 PM

"Some may call me a renegade, madame, but I am a wizard of the silver robes. As for Pyranthas, he believes he is the son of a god. He is Templar, and can draw energy from seemingly nowhere. He is also very old, not being able to remember when he was born," says the Thorn.

He looks around at those at the table and a little smile crosses his face. Young lustful people, oh to be younger, thinks the mage.

Fireflame
08/14/2000 5:21 PM

"I can...cannot say that i have uhh... heard of Pyranthas either" Qualen manages to say between glances at Leana. His pale elven features are somewhat darkened as he blushes and looks down at the table, pretending to examine the grain of the wood as he regains his composure...

The_Thorn
08/15/2000 8:23 AM

"Not many people have. He lives on a small island where the last remaining temple of the Templar is," states the Thorn. "He is currently recruiting a small army for a war that he senses is impending. I have been keeping taps on him, offering mage services when necessary, which isn't very often I might add."

The_Thorn
08/18/2000 8:14 AM

The Thorn gazes around the room, noting how many of the patrons have become quiet and are now listening to his stories and explanations.

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/18/2000 1:10 PM

What is...to be done about it...What will we do?

The_Thorn
08/22/2000 12:57 PM

"I suggest that for now we just observe. They don't appear to be in any danger at the moment. I think the time that we should take action or start worrying is when they start to realize who they really are," answers the Thorn.

Fireflame
08/22/2000 7:10 PM

"What is that supposed to mean?" says Qualen. "Are we just supposed to sit around and wait for war to break out???

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/23/2000 10:34 AM

Well we couldn't kill them, we can't make them mad, in fear they'll remember themselves and release their wrath upon us. But I can't support just waiting either. In my mind some action must be taken, but beyond that, I can't offer anything.

*Leana sighed and leaned back in her chair*

Fireflame
08/23/2000 4:42 PM

Qualen looks aroud at the group, then back to the Thorn. "You must have a plan if you know of this god...or else you wouldn't have mentionned him! What do you suggest?"

"I agree with Leana, we can't kill them because, as you stated earlier...they have an army gathering, but I think a small secretive strike force could really improve the matter at hand."

The_Thorn
08/24/2000 8:21 AM

"Well, as for a plan, my plan is to eventually put them all back up in the heavens where they belong. As for how I'm going to go about doing it.... I've just been trying to be their friends, making sure they don't get into too much trouble," says the Thorn. "I believe this is our best bet. If we befriend them, when the time comes, there is a better chance they'll listen to us."

Kitiara2
08/24/2000 8:00 PM

Well this all is most intriguing, but why must we know? Why was I told of your coming?

Why-

*Kit's voice fades as she looks at Thorn.*

You are him, aren't you? Please, please don't take me! I don't want to go! Did you hear from the govenor? Oh, I don't wanna gooooooo!

The_Thorn
08/25/2000 11:42 AM

"I'm sorry, I believe you've mistaken me for someone else. Please calm down young lady. I intend you no harm. I am here to help educate. For the world to learn, specifically about magic. Sometimes in my study I come across other important things that need to be taken care of, such as the gods. At one point I believed that I might be one of the, perhaps the god Gilean, since I have no recollection of my past. I no longer believe this, having researched Gilean's behaviors."

Kitiara2
08/28/2000 7:39 PM

Nooo... don't take me... he'll... rape me... uh... NOOOO. Gilean ! YOU are Gilean!!!

The_Thorn
08/30/2000 7:55 AM

"Calm down child, there is nothing to worry about," says the Thorn. "I am here to protect you and I'm sure my apprentice will watch over you too. There is nothing to worry about. Maybe you should drink something to soothe your nerves, tea perhaps?"

Kitiara2
09/04/2000 9:13 PM

No, no thats all I wanted to do, I swear I never meant to kill him, he agreed it was for the best! Oh, please. Ask Astinus, He was even there. And Fizban, although he wasn't sure where he was! PLEASE!

*A dagger cleaves Kit's side and she screams*

The_Thorn
09/05/2000 6:01 AM

The Thorn looks around to see if he can identify where the dagger came from. He thinks about the murky character called the Hooded One but can't prove that this is his handywork. The Thorn stands up and shouts several directions to those around him. The lay the young barkeep on the table and the Thorn slowly removes the dagger. He then casts a sleep spell on the victim, insuring that she will feel no more pain until he is done. The mage has Leana remove Kit's shirt where it has been torn. He tells the elf to apply pressure to stop the bleeding. Once it does, the Thorn uses a thread and needle to sew the wound closed. He then proceends to wrap the wound so it won't become infected. He gets several of the regulars who are staring dumbfounded to tell him where Kit sleeps and he carries her limp body to her bed. After placing here in bed in a comfortable position, the Thorn finds a chair and pulls it up outside of the door and starts reading his book.
