OOC: C'mon people....we need to get the rp'ing goin' here!!:P:D

Basically this is about an ancient order of humans, with special, rare gifts, who formed a order known as the "Nighthawks". They were formed to go on quests, to the Underdark, and battle the drow advances. One of the "gifts" is infravision. Either the new members were parented by two Nighthawks, or were taken away as children, when they showed the proper "talents". They would always leave a paper behind explaining that they would see the child again in 5 years, unless they proved inept.

(this is set long after the last FR book). A new leader has taken control of the drow, named Darken Wildclaw. He is a brutal leader, and even priestesses of Llyr are afraid of him. He has thrown down Llyr as the godess of the drow, claiming that she has only brought disaster. Now they worship a new goddess, Jarilkai, a death-goddess. All the high families were over trown by the underlings, and now to be a priestess of Llyr means death. Now they have Necrolans, drow trained in the religion of Jalikai, and with the ability to raise the dead, but not as Zin-carla, but only their bodies.


Darken is raising an army to take over the surface world, but first he intends to unite the underworld. He is battling the deep gnomes, in an attempt to become the master of all the races beneath the world. What he intends to do to the mind flayers, the Illythid, is unknown. We have heard rumors that he is developing a new weapon against them. Your task is clear: mabilize a unit of the most highly trained of we Nighthawks, and lead a strike team to the Underdark, and find out how much has been conquered, what of this new weapon, and you will be given a list of drow leaders to attempt to eliminate.

My prayers are with you,

~Doreid Kelerom, scribe of the Nighthawks We all are faced with choices: choices that we regret, choices that we hate, and choices that we fear. But somehow we make these choices, and life moves on, because in truth, the choices make us.

interesting topic angel...but i've only read a limitted number of books on the FR (and that's like several years ago) and most of them were only centered around drizzt's du urden and his little cast of cassie and that barbarian and the dwarf...(shows ya how poor my memory are.)
anyway just throw me some titles related to this thread and i'll try to drink them in and hopefully we can start something here so the forum would not stay "dead" as everyone says it is. :)"Searching... yet not fully grasping the concept of limitations."

I haven't read the actual Icewind dale trilogy, but I've read "The legacy" and all the way up to "The Passage To Dawn" I read the ones where Drizzt was still in the underdark, the Homeland series, I believe.

I read the icewind dale trilogy, and given my age at the time i've read it it was merely just reading it for the moment as oppose to reading it for the memories...if i make any sense at all..anywya i know a little bit of something about the drows and the underdark, although i don'think i read the homeland series.
Up to the legacy and passage of dawn..well i had found that they were a bit of lacking...how shall i put it...the emotimons that salvatore's prior books had...so that pretty much ended it for me there.

give me aweek or so whenever i have a chance to escape my hounded reality of studies to even lift up a fantasy book...to refresh my memories of FR, alrite? i'll post really soon enough..and try to "improvise" also.

OOC: Here we go.

BIC: Airin's dreams were troubled. he was running from something, but he didn't know what. Some sort of beast was chasing him. And it was nothing that he had ever seen or heard of before. He ran through the forest, and stopped short at the top of a ravine. He knew that he could lose it if he went over the ravine. He jumped into air, and fell. He managed to get up while the dark waters surged around, threatening to pull him underneath, to darkness.


Suddenly something landed on him, and soft color exploded in front of his eyelids as his head made contact with a rock. It knocked him so dizzy that he barely had time to notice that the thing was chewing on his arm. as he opened his mouth to scream, nothing came out. In the dream, that is.


Airin sat up in bed grabbingthe sheets, a dry scream wrenching from his throat. As always, he couldn't remember his dreams. Or nightmares. He just knew that they were something that he didn't want to remember.

They had started when he was a child, after the nighthawks had taken him. And with the new incursion to the underdark coming down, they were getting worse. He climbed out of bed. It was very early in the morning, but someone would be up. Perhaps he could find out who else had been selected to the underdark, he mused as he walked down the steps.Queen Catherine has finished the War in Enroth, and has reurned to her father's kingdom, Erathia and found it in turmoil.

"Today midday, you are called to attention by the venerable Elders to the chamber of warfare. Everything will be discussed then."

Eryla was the fifth human to be chosen for the assignment in the underdark…who the other four are was still a mystery. The elders had promised to explain everything at the group meeting and eryla had no choice but to believe them. She tightened the broad supple belt around her waist revealing a slim curved form. Her shirt was adorned with spaghetti straps, the sleeves ending in a flowing array. The creasted sheath of her dagger was attached to the belt at the lateral of her body, and pouches of herbs and powder, hung from coarse strands at the front. They were required for her healing class and served as an annoyance most of the time.
Her leather boots stretched just beneath her knee, molding to its healthy sinewy flesh.
A long spandex skirt trailed to the floor, both sides slit to the thigh. The cloudy gray eyes gazed at the parchment posted at her door and read it again, this time a sly smile crossing her face shadowed by thick coffee hair.

This would be interesting as we all are revealed amongst eachother….. she mused, taking up her bow and arrow, her chosen weapon. She had practiced numerous of other weapons, the sword and saber, the staff, whip, and axe-all did not measure to her taste. It was the bow and arrow that drew her attention, its sleek strength and comfortable holding position enticed her. She was the best targetswomen in her class, always aiming direct marks. Her sharp eyes made it easier for her to accept the gift of "infravision" and her keen sense of direction always led her classmate out of quagmires. Respected, admired, adored, she was all of that and more in her class of female who she came to call as family. For she had none unlike everyone in her class, her parentsboth pureblood nighthawks had perished in a mission to the underdark, where they came upon an ambush led by a group of drows. This show of courage and the bestowed honor that her parents had received was an incentive for her to persevere and break away from their shadows and create a new identity other than consitently being regarded as "their daughter". And all her hard work paid off. She had finally been chosen.

BIC: Airin walked along, and spotted a woman, vaguely familiar. Eryla? he wondered. "Eryla?" he asked tentitavely. His main pleasure from being a Nighthawk was his earth-sight: it allowed him to temporarily leave his mind, ad speed through the earth, seeing tunnels and walls. Darknees still affected him, but like all Nighthawks he had a little night-vision.Queen Catherine has finished the War in Enroth, and has reurned to her father's kingdom, Erathia and found it in turmoil.

She immediately caught sight of Airin, a tall lean boy of her age. He was in a different sect of the Nighthawks, trained as a full fledged warrior. She knew him briefly from an assignment they once worked together as the chosen leaders of their sectors. It was enough time to produce a level of admiration and respect between the both of them.

There was an air about him that was different from the last she saw him. Dresseed in hunting clothes consist of a simple green tunic and earth brown trousers, he had a serious expression on his face and Eryla took it as not a very good sign.

As she edged closer, he called out softly to her…in an uncertain voice.
Flashing a warm smile, she greeted him, “Hello Airin, it’s nice to see you. It’s been quite a while.”

"So........ You were chosen as well? It's good to see you. I was..heading to where we are supposed to be briefed this morning." He walked down the corridor, and then suddenly was struc with an image, that came from a dream, him hurtling down this corridor at full speed, being pursued by drow. He knocked on the door, and a voice calmly spoke "Enter." he slipped inside, and took stock of the other members. There were 8 in all, including himself and Eryla. Doreid who had sent him the summons hovered in a corner, with his ever-present quill and parchment.


"You all know why you have been called. A new leader, Darken Wildclaw has taken control of the drow, and now intends to rule the world. And he's getting dangerously close to ruling the Underdark. You 8 have a mission: to see how deep the loyalty runs to him, to see how powerful the drow are, and how close they are to conquering the Underdark. Have no illusions: there is a very small chance that you will all return, alive or otherwise. If any of you return."Queen Catherine has finished the War in Enroth, and has reurned to her father's kingdom, Erathia and found it in turmoil. Now the choice has come.....

OOC: Angel, I had hope that I made myself clear in the other thread that there is to be 5 nighthawks on the assignment…the reason I prefer five as oppose to 8 is because it would be a lot easier to manage because sadly, it appears that we are the only two who would be rping this story. Unless you’re thinking of killing several of the nighthawks off earlier on in the expedition…hmmm…maybe that’s a thought...then nevermind what I said.

And I’m also somewhat confused as to how this “talent” of airin works because one moment im speaking to u and the next moment im not. :) I will reply as soon as u clarify it and also tell me whether we are using 5 or 8 nighthawks…

race: human
skin color: pale
Weapons: staff, two prong daggers.
Further description: Waist-length raven hair that is always bound in a braid around her head. Small curls falls on the front of her blouse, flowing over a knee high slitted skirt. Her dark brown eyes contain flecks of gold when observed more intently, and thus, unbeknownst to others, provide perfect vision and ability to quickly adapt to lighting conditions. Belonged to a more discrete sector, different from that of eryla’s. Her chosen weapon is a polished mahogany staff because she does not want to run the risk of endangering a life…yet just for precaution sake, strapped on both side of her thigh are sharp prong daggers.


IC:
I’ve no illusions, Eryla thought grimly…But I will complete the mission and return with pride and honor intact. And with my life.
The elder spoke more of the matter, but eryla’s mind drifted off in anticipation…only soon to be interrupted by airin’s sharp glance.
“This mission will start at dusk…you all know what the assignment is…to obstruct any plans they have to surface and to deliver them crippling blows if possible. I want Darken’s subcommander’s head by the time the season turns.”

The black pommel was made out of a large onyx, ornately carved. The blade was made from dark gray steel, and was spotless. She glanced over the others: she identified Airin and Eryla. She smiled. Airin. The walking arsenal. She looked foward to theis mission to the underdark keenly, but she worried about what else besides drow lurked. Cave horrors, deep gnomes, mind flayers, and countless other dangers. She had also heard that these "Necrolans" could raise the dead. She shivered at the thought of skeletal hands scrabbling at her blade as she sliced through them.Queen Catherine has finished the War in Enroth, and has reurned to her father's kingdom, Erathia and found it in turmoil.

The chosen nighthawks filed out of the dimly lit room, one of them, a lightskinned girl, by the name of Jess, Airin the ever so arrogant male, Danira, half-drow and human--she would be extremely useful because of that, Eryla mused...and someone else she did not know of.

He must belong with Airin's sector, eryla thought as she observed the way they exchange looks of contempts toward one another. But whatever rivalry they might have, it must be left behind once they embark on their mission. Eryla would make sure of it, because she wanted to come back alive and had no tolerance for childish competitions.
