This will be a story where you are to find the
'Elder Dragon' which is a supposed statue of the
first Dragon. It is said that anyone who finds
this statue and prays to it will be cured of all
ailments (SP?) forever. This will begin in a
tavern in New Haven. The tavern is called Home of
The Silverscales. Start any time you want. To
start the quest, talk to the Dragoness named
Airiana, she will tell you all you need to know to carry on. ATTN: Need ATLEAST
three people to begin quest.

IC: Airiana Half-Silver stands behind the
Dragon-sized counter, she had all the usual guests,
a few drunks, a couple of Dragons, and a lot of
mischeif-makers.

The Thorn approaches the door. To find the Elder Dragon would help magic and the rest of the world quite a bit, thinks the mage. It would also make a great chronicle. The mage, clad in a brown robe with a silver cloak, heads towards the door of the tavern. He leans slightly on a plain looking oak staff. The Thorn opens the door to the tavern and peers around. Seeing noone of interest in the bar patrons, he heads to the most intelligent looking person in the bar, the bartender. He sits on the far end of the bar, his back leaning against the wall so at any time he can scan the entire room. he decides to strike up a conversation with the unusually beautiful bartender. "I am the Thorn," says the mage, "and I am trying to find the Elder Dragon. WOuld you have any information to pass on to me about this?"

A kender enters the bar. He doesn't seem like an ordanary kender, with his plaid robes and serios expression. If anyone knew his thoughts, they would know him to be un-kenderlike.
To find the Elder Dragon and its magic would surely help me in the building of a new, entirely safe realm for all kender.But should I mix with others who might take the prize for thier own?
Ignoring his suspicous inner voice, Ghostbuster Lillypad waits for the barmaid to answer before joining Thorn.
(ooc: if Ghostbuster Lillypad seems differant in this thread, it is becuase I want to develop his character from "simple,kender borower, founder of stupid order" to a more reall character)

ooc:sound reasonable. You know you can always pretent to be someone else once in a while.

*Leana walks in quietly, leting her silver robes swirl around her feet as she pauses by the door. She nods in respect to her teacher before sitting at the bar*

Could I have some elven wine, please?

Aestas_Tamwe_Jume
08/17/2000 4:56 PM

Aestas looks at leana suspiciously....


"I smell.........the FINGERPRINTS OF SCUM!" she murmurs under her breath, over and over. ;)





"Ariana (sp), can you further explain this phenomenon? I am not sure I understand completely. Is this related at all to the Abernathis dragon?"


She nods to Thorn, smiles to Ghostbuster, and tries to stay away from the Fingerprints of Scum.

The_Thorn
08/18/2000 8:13 AM

The Thorn greets Leana and tells her they need to speak sometime soon at the tower. He then turns to the kender. "Come sit by me, little one," says the Thorn, pulling a bar stool out for the kender to climb up on.

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/18/2000 1:20 PM

*Leana nods at the meeting proposal. Sipping lightly at her wine, the silver mage joins in the conversation*
This quest could further the cause of the silver robed order...As well as feed my own ambition. Please, tell me more.

Joe_Ghostbuster
08/20/2000 7:22 AM

Ghostbuster decides that the shadows have done enough for him in one night.
"Yes, do tell us about this 'Elder Dragon'." "Is it related to the one that legend has it that Huma killed?"
(ooc:Thorn you have a very 'patronizing the kender' thing here, and I suggest you stop it.)

Just as the door opens. a man walks and stands at the bar.

"BARKEEP i hear there is a quest starting to find a statue of the elder dragon i wish to join"

(but depending on who the statue resembles then its use will be intresting)

"you there" looking at thorn "are you on this quest i am Borac Foxfire i hope you fight better than that kender sitting next to you"

Joe_Ghostbuster
08/20/2000 2:46 PM

"Enough!!" shouts Ghostbuster.

"I may hold myself back from using my arts on a fellow magic user, but It would be no problem to quell you!"

"If you would join us in this quest, I request you treat us equally!"

"Speaking of which, we have yet to know anything about this 'Elder Dragon'."
Thus saying, Ghostbuster turns to Airiana.

Agreed on both counts. I don't go on quests with bigots, and I don't go on quests I know nothing about. What in the Abyss are we getting ourselves into?

The_Thorn
08/22/2000 10:38 AM

The Thorn assesses the situation. "I meant no disregard," he says to Ghostbuster. "Unlike many other people I am fond of your kind, and I hope to see some of magic skills in the near future. However, are barkeep with the information we seek seems to have disappeared and with out that there is no quest," he says looking at Foxfire.

Furanthas
08/22/2000 4:21 PM

"Airiana my friend. Tis a joy beyond words to see thee again. I'm sending this message from a town out in the mountains of B.C. I bring good news, Within a couple weeks I will be back on for good again. And we can catch up on journey's and tales of all kinds. But I must go now, But remember the heart-emerald always has my power there if thine needs it."

"So long for now my Dear friend. My secret will always be safe with you."

From your Blood bond brother.
Furanthas of both bloods.

Leana_Nightbreeze
08/23/2000 10:46 AM

Hmm, you may be right, Airiana doesn't seem to be around.

*Feeling guilty about her harsh greeting, Leana walks over to Foxfire holding out her hand*

Sorry, I hate starting out on the wrong foot, My name is Leana Nightbreeze. Could have yours, sir?

Joe_Ghostbuster
08/25/2000 12:29 AM

"I have waited long enough!" Ghostbuster shouts.
"That Barmaid had better appear soon, or I will go on this quest without her help!"

"Patience my friend, or barkeep may be finding the information we need to start our journey. In the mean time would you like to see something extraordinary?" asks the Thorn.

Borac
08/27/2000 9:20 AM

"Please forgive me i had to use a telaport spell to get here on time and i am a bit tired Leana let me get a round in when that barmaid gets here as a small token"

Borac
08/27/2000 9:30 AM

"Please forgive me i had to use a telaport spell to get here on time and i am a bit tired Leana let me get a round in when that barmaid gets here as a small token"

*Takeing hold of leanas hand* "my name is borac foxfire a pleasure to meet you shall we sit down"

Borac
08/27/2000 9:42 AM

Borac Takes hold of leanas hand "please forgive me i have just used a telaport spell to get here on time my name is Borac foxfire"

"And as a token let me get a round in to make up for my rude behavour when that barmaid gets here"

Joe_Ghostbuster
08/27/2000 2:33 PM

Ghostbuster goes up to Borac.
"I will forgive you Foxfire,even though you have not apoligized to me."
He smiles. "I do hope you will not feel the need to buy me a drink."

The Thorn smiles seeing that everyone is now getting along. He glances around the bar to see if he can see the barkeep anywhere.

Airiana
09/08/2000 7:12 AM

OOC: Sorry everyone... I didn't actually think
this RP would get off the ground...

BIC: Airiana summons up all drinks that had been
called out as she walks behind the bar, her eyes
resting upon each person for a second or two.
"The 'Elder Dragon' was the first, therefore, he
resembles all Dragons..." She says, looking
around at all of the people wishing to go
on the quest. "How many of thee wish to go on
this quest? It would be most helpful if I knew
how many to prepare for..."

~~Airiana

The_Thorn

"I will go," says the Thorn. "I could learn much from this trip."

marcus
09/08/2000 11:34 AM

"And i will as well because i didnt come all this way for nothing" said marcus pulling up a chair.



**To all role-players sorry for that little screw-up with borac i dont know how that happend**

Ghostbuster stands.
"I will come."
"I hope I will not have sat for hours for nothing."
(OOC:Everybody who posted here wants to enter the quest, no?)

** Airiana looks around the room at all the people who wish to go on her quest. ** Three wish to go, that is good. I hope thee all realize this shan't be an easy task… It will require every bit of strength in you. **She looks around once more. ** I will not be accompanying any of thee on this journey. I will give each of thee a map and a riddle that will help thee figure out the location of the 'Elder Dragon.' This will be given to thee in one week's time. Until then, I suggest thou prepare thyselves.

{A blue flash of light blinds all in the dim lit room, as the light dims a form can be seen standing face towards the eligant and beautiful Airiana. As their eyes adjust they make out robes of silver and gold and can see that this stranger is a young male human, well built in the upper body with golden hair that resembles dragon scales that spike from front to back.}

"My dear friend, tis been to long."

{the figure bows with a great respect, do to one of such radiant beauty. Raising his face to meet hers she see's the eye's that only she has seen. Silver with that speacial touch of gold. The mans gaze lower's to her neck to gaze at the gift that began to shimmer with green,red,blue,and white light's. Those lights as if alive and of their own free will begin to float towards the stranger, eventually gliding right into his heart. A look of sorrow and joy paint his face now.}

"I see that the problem with your father still remains unsolved. But above all that to see me is a joy to stop the greif for a moment. Tis beyond words how good it is to see thee's face again."



"Power comes with Discipline."

Joe_Ghostbuster
09/13/2000 12:05 PM

Ghostbuster stands up.
"A week?We came here and have been waiting for hours for you to arrive, and now you tell us to wait a week?"
"Give us your riddles if that is all you have, and then let us go!"

(OOC:Unless you mean a week real time?)

09/14/2000 3:33 AM

**Airiana looks at Furanthas with a knowing look, he saw into the Heart-Emerald… no words needed to be spoken. A wide smile stretched across her Silver/Red Dragon face.**

"Blood of My Blood, it has truly been too long since last we met. I wondered where thee were… Yes. The matter with my father is unresolved… though I wish it were not so…"

**Airiana's Silver eyes filled with tears momentarily. Then, noticing this, she quickly swiped away the Red tear that ran down her scalely cheek. **

"I have missed thee beyond words, my friend. I do hope thou wilt tell me of thy journey… but first, I must speak with those who wish to quest…"

**Airiana turns to Ghostbuster. **

"A week I require to gather the rhyme and the map for thy journey. If thee do not like this, then thou wilt consent to leave my tavern, posthaste!"

OOC: Ghostbuster, this is real time… as I said before, I didn't expect this RPG to get off the ground… I gotta make up the riddle… please excuse the inconvenience… Teachers assigning over ten assignments a night… hard to get anything done. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience.

BIC: **Airiana turns back to Furanthas.**

"Come. Let us sit. Tell me of thy travels. I am eager to hear thou's adventures.

~~ Airiana

Furanthas
09/14/2000 10:06 AM

{Seeing the tear of crimson wiped away from her lovely face turned furanthas's eyes a deep blue. Smiling softly he turns ands walks to two chairs that have materialized out of thin air. Gesturing for his dear friend to sit and relax. After she had gotten comfortable he to sat, his gaze into the fire as if lost in it's almost liquid dance.}

"Well my journey was one of great endurance. A test of all my skills and ability's."

{Speaking a quick word as soft as the breeze that drifted through the room. the very room began to fade to nothing and all within were falling deep into a dark abyss of nothingness. But soon a light appeared below, soft at first but as they fell the light grew in brightness. Eventually the light turned so bright all the darkness was gone, from the light colours began to form. As if in a painting all watched in awe as a world formed about them. They were in a world were the sky burned red with a blue sun burning in the sky. The land was dark purple and there was nothing as far a the eye could see. But as if a god had ripped the very ground up from out of this barren land, there before them was a giant crater in the surface.}

"Do not be afraid or doubt what is happening. This is only in your mind's... adventures. I have learned on my journey that the mind has the power to create queit wonderful things."

{Lifting his hand they all watched as a dove of the purest white fromed from a single flower pedal in his hand. The dove spread it's wings and took off into the vastly open sky. About a quarter of a mile away the dove began to change again but this time into a giant black dragon, that banked hard and began surging towards the small group. The dragon breathed in deep and blue out a giant cloud of its deadly acid right above the few of them. All except Furanthas and Airiana raised their arms in protection. But the acid didn't burn and sizzle their flesh in fact it soothed the skin. When the adventures looked again they saw that the acid had turned to a soft snow fall. The snow falling gracefully from the now empty sky.}

"Tis only hard to realize exactly how much it can create."

The_Thorn
09/14/2000 11:07 AM

The Thorn watches the newcomer with some interest. He knows that both the bartender and the stranger exude an aura of power, both very similar but with some minor differences. He thinks to himself, this mission may be suicide but I must try to complete it because it could help the cause of magic much. He stands and turns to his new companions. "I will be back in shortly under a week, there is some other business I must attend to, I will see you then," he states as he vanishes into the shadows.

marcus
09/15/2000 2:09 PM

"See you thorn" as borac turns back to the others "Lets see in one week we are to return here well it gives me time to prepare at least good night everyone"
"barkeep i see your back i will take one of you rooms for the week" throws some steel on the counter and walks up stairs.
