Scenario: You are stuck in a large prison cell somewhere. You've been locked up for so long you've forgotten the location of the actual prison. Escaping isn't an option. Everyone has tried, everyone has failed. In the confined cell, your days are spent fighting your enemies and nurturing alliances.

Timeline: You can't remember. The days are measured by your daily ration of curdled porridge.

Mission Objective: To hold onto your sanity.


*Hooded gives the rest of the prisoners his daily snarl. Walking to the bars, Hooded drags a large manacle attached to his foot and slides a tin cup annoyingly back and forth along the metallic bars.*

*THM sits near the back of the cell contemplating his situation once more. He has done so every day since he got here. He looks up and sees The Hooded One clinking the can and blocks out the sound. THM then turns back to his thoughts*
(OOC sorry again Hooded One for the similar name. I had no idea when I came here. *bows* I am sorry. Please do not be offended.)

The skinny redheaded man sat in the coner of his cell. His hair was long and dirty. His face had a bear of the same deep red color. The beard had an almost wild look to it, as did the man himself.

He looked up as the cup rattled against his bars. He was human of that there was no doubt. Yet his green eyes showed an age no human should ever see. Whie his face looked young, maybe 30, it also looked tired and somehow older than it should.

His clothes were torn and half rotten. He sat twirlig a small rod-like rock in his fingers.

The rock keeps me sane he thought. It's all I have left

He sat there unmoving, except for his hands, which never seemed to stop.

Tolkanin Faznin is perhps the closest to insanity. Ech day, the kender spends countless hours trying to figure a way out. When she tires of that, she talks to the prisoners. Today, she gets done contemplating if she could eat through the wall and what that would taste like, probably not very good but better than the porridge. However, she is brought out of her concentration by The Hooded One and searches her pouches. She soon finds wht she is looking for and runs over to paint a smiley face on his ball and chain.

In a dark corner, in the northern most part of the prison, a man sits catatonically in his cell. He stares blankly into the hallway, watching his prisonmates slowly loose grip of reality. 'How sad it must be for them,' he thought to himeself, 'to not have the company that i do.' He retreated back to the voices in his head. The ones that he swears that only he can hear.

*Hooded pauses his tin cup symphony for a moment. Turning around and seeing the catatonic man happily talking to himself. Hooded steps on his foot deliberately as he does his daily tour of the prison cell. Stumbling by the skinny red bearded man, Hooded spots the rock.*

"Well well, you kept that rock well hidden Red. I used to have one just like it." Lies Hooded. "I think I've let you borrow it for long enough. Time to hand it over Red."

*Hearing a skuttling noise behind him. Hooded spins around to see the kender drawing something on his manacle.*

"How many years have we been stuck together kender? After all this time, you still don't listen when I tell you to not draw stuff on my manacles." Hooded says annoyed, aiming a kick vaguely in the kender's direction.

The red headed man looks up at hooded and then at his rock.

Why are there always bullies in theses places? he thought. why don't they just leave me be

As the kender distracts Hooded he slams his hand into the wall. Chucks or small rock and dust fall to the ground.

With a nod he picks up a hand full of dirt and begins filtering through both his hands. Repeating the process over and over again.

"Aww, come on!" Tolk protested, deftly dodging Hooded's vain attempt. "I was bored and running out of things to do and it wasn't a bery pretty manacle anyway but now it is and it will remind us to be happy and smile and love one another and hey, cool!" She runs up to Red and the Interstesing Rock, "That's really neat, where'd you get it? Can I see it? It's so pretty! I wonder if it were used for magic. You know, it would be very advantageeous if they captured a mage and threw him in here. I bet he'd know how to get us out! He could blow down the walls or melt the bars or something. Then we'd be saved by beautiful gold and silver and copper and brass and bronze dragons, and they'd take us to places where it's lush and green with sparkling rivers and little homes with smoke coming out of the chimeny and there's be lots of fun little trinkets--that's what I've missed the most, are fun little trinkets." With a sigh, Tolk skips off, and that's when both Hooded and Red realize that neither one of them are longer in possestion of the rock.

*THM sits eyeing the prisoners again then a guard comes to the door of the cell. He walks into
the room and grabs THM by the robes.*
"You're coming with me punk"
*Hooded eyes the guard with no fear as he's dragged away to
be "questioned". The guard mumbles something about this taking 4 or 5 days to do.*

A kender sits in one of the corners of the cell.
He is covered by a blanket of plaid,and scattered around him are maps of every type known to man and kender.
It is hard to know if he is sleeping or not.
Eiether way,it's obvious he is not totally awake.He is not even totally sane.
He is not even sure of his own name.

08/27/2000 7:18 PM

Squatting in the corner of the cell, Autumn giggles and fingers her collection of dead rats. Carefully and lovingly she wraps each of them in a finely woven blanket of her red hair which she has recently removed from her head.

"For you, and you, and you, and you," starts passing out the rats to her cell mates, a broad smile gracing her bald head.

Hums a yuletide song because everyday is Yuletide to Autumn. Begins decorating the kenders with colored mattress thread.

"Pretty pretty," pinches each of them on their cheeks.

Hi. I'm happy.

Tolkanin Faznin runs up to the other kender and starts rooting through his map collection. Maybe he can find a way out!

*Hooded grabs his ears as Tolk raves on and on. Falling to his knees, a contorted expression crosses his face. Just before insanity creeps in, the kender gets distracted and skips off happily. Recovering quickly, Hooded stands up and turns his attentions back to Red. His daily bullying of Red being one of the highlights of the day for Hooded. Putting his face inches away from Red, Hooded talks to him through clenched teeth.*

"Where's my rock Red? Huh? Where is it huh? HUH? HUH?" Hooded says in an angry voice, but walks off happy, his chest swelling with pride after the bullying of Red.

*Seeing 'Rat-Chick' try and hand him a rat. Hooded slowly backs off. Not wanting to attract any more attention from the bald rat lover. Even amongst the other diseased prisoners. Rat-Chick sure looked bad. Seeing Tolk spot a map collection, Hooded drags his manacles over to investigate.*

"Look Tolk. Another one of you." Hooded says pointing to the strange looking male kender. "Hmm, I think I'll take those maps." Hooded says reaching for the maps.

He was tired incredibly tired. He all but ignored Hodded as the man yelled at him.

How long have I been in places like this? he wondered how long have I been in This place?

He watched hooded go and bully the kenders. The man was angry, probally at the world. He couldn't hate hooded though, for he'd once been much the same. If hooded lived in places like this long enough the anger would fade, then die all together.

All emotions die He thought.

His mind began to concentrate on the little things, stealing his thoughts. The feel of the drt in his hands, The slight "Clinking" noise behnd him. The feel of the slight draft on his face. The stench of the place, which one gets used to quickly enough.

His head turned to the door.

Then He did something noone can remember him ever doing, he spoke.

"They are coming"

Tolk steps over the collection of maps and smaks the other kender upside the head; "Hey! How long have you been here and not told me?! Get up! Help me figure a way out of this place! Here, I'll show you what's in my pouches!"

Joe_Ghostbuster
08/28/2000 5:09 PM

The kender dimly notices the hooded man and femlae kender coming toward him.
He doesn't mind the female kender, but when the human starts touching his maps,he gets angry!
Touch my maps! I'll teach you!
The words to a spell come to the kenders lips.
"Ankar tusa karte!!"
Nothing happens.
The mystery kender breaks down and starts crying, his blanket pulled down.

*Hooded picks up one of the maps at random. Looking up in surprise, Hooded notes the kender's attempt at a spell. The pronunciation seemed correct, but the anti-magic binding the prison obviously stopped the spell from taking effect.*

"What sort of kender knows magic?" Hooded spits, half surprised. Half disgusted. Hearing Red talk for the first time ever, Hooded spins around.
"Well, this certainly is a day of firsts. Who's coming Red?" Hooded says, a slight quiver entering his voice. "Not the little ones again?"

The kender hears one of the humans, a red headed one, say something and another, the one who took his maps, reply.
His voice has a tone of fear,The kender notes.
perhaps it was them.No, it couldn't be, they are long gone.
They are! I am sure of it!And yet, that tone of fear...I must wake.
The kender stands up, ready for what he knows are coming.
I will fight,without my magic if I must, but fight I will!
And the cell doors open, and out come those few know, but all who survive remember.
Some might mock them,but not for long.
Them.Kender Death Knights
(OOC:Ok, I know everybody's luaghing now, but Death knights are horrible, kender or not.And remember, spell-proof cell...)

The catatonic man shifts his weight slightly allowing the rat to fall into the pile of dead rats at his side. He had always liked the rat-chick. All the voices in his mind did too.

*Seeing the male kender stiffen, Hooded feels cold sweat coat his body. The first sound to invade the cell was the clanking of armour, second came the deathly giggles. Hooded rushes over to Red and imitates him. Juggling dirt from hand to hand, maybe they won't notice me thinks Hooded desperately. Seeing several death knight kender milling about outside, seeing their hoopaks made of bone Hooded pushes himself closer to the wall. Then the cell door is opened and 6 death knight kender enter. Hooded shivers.*

So they come. the kender thought.
Them, who put me in this magicless cell, who took from me my books, my powers!
"I will fight them!"
Saying the last out loud,The kender prepares to battle the death knights.
Taking out a spoon from his pouch, the kender ignores the Death Kender marching towared him, and prays.
"Fizban in all your wisdom grant me power to banish these, despite my lack of faith, I will return to your ways, I promise this!"
feeling power running through his veins once more, the kender --Ghostbuster!-- turned to the Death kenders.
"Begone foul fiends!Begone from this plane, er I banish you!"
"BEGONE!!" Ghostbuster shouts, and one of the Death Kender vanishes.
"BEGONE!!"another one.
two more go the way of the others.
But there are still 5 more, and Ghostbuster is tired.

*Hooded clenches a fist in triumph. The living kender was distracting the dead kender. Hooded lets his head fall in disappointment when he sees the kender tiring. Hooded stands and lifts a manacle as a makeshift weapon. Glancing at Catatonic, Red, Tolk and Rat-Chick. The last of Hooded's hope fades.*

"Killed by kender. How glorious." Hooded spits bitterly.

He almost grins as hooded starts to copy his movements. He'd been afraid. The anger was gone for a split second it had died and been reborn from the fear. Even now h could taste the emotions all around him. The fear was so sweet.

He remembered the taste from so long ago. It had made him so strong. But now he was denied the srength but not the taste. That is what was driving him insane. That and being forced to eat actual food again.

With a casual movement he threw a knife at hooded's feet and dove past the kender into the hallway.

He kne he'd never escape but he had to try this time. If he didn't try he'd go insane. He began sprinting arond the corner. He slowed and slipped into the shadows as best he could and moved quickly. He was alert as he could be after eating the food for so long.

Just then a human guard came around the corner. Red grabbed the guard and held another thin stone to the man's throat. He cold taste the fear. The guard's bladder emptied itself as red spoke.

"Time to die human"

The guard slumped to the floor. Red stood still taking in a deep breath. The guards Terror had caused hi to pass out. It had tasted so good.

He suddely realized he felt strong again. Not as strong as he should but still stronger than before. He was out of the cell and while still hindered e could feed. The thought held him in place for a second.

Suddenly he felt hatred and rage. He thought hooded might be near by he opened his eyes to see 50 human guards.

"More food"

He cracked his neck and waited.

*Hooded grabs desperately for the dagger and holds it lovingly. Not as well balanced as his old dagger, but it would do. Turning around, Hooded decapitates a kender with an end through the loop manauvre and makes a dash for freedom. Feeling a skull cracking thump to the back of his head. Hooded crashes to the ground and rolls over. Looking up in terror and as a skeleton kender stood over him spinning a hoopak with taunting efficiency...*

Two giant, pale green hands come out of the shadows. The arms are lean but still muscular. The two hands engulf the heads of two of the death knights. Then, in a motion like clapping, the two heads of the death knights are smashed together, shattering the skulls into a million tiny fragments. Slowly a big lumbering form shuffles out of the shadows.

"I do good?" ask the half ogre. "Me help tiny person and cloth man."

The half ogre stands about 8'2". He had to stoop to fit inside his cell and the halways. His matted brown hair was thinning on the top. It looked like a small bird had taken residence in it.

The large oaf grinned at his new friends, showing many crooked yellow and brown teeth. His bulbous nose looked like it had been broken several times. The only charming feature were his crystal blue eyes, which sparkled with a childs innocence.

*The guards come and throw HE into the cell. His robes are torn and burned in spots. In other spot they are blood stained and worn out, however his hood
remains over his head and his eyes flicker red dimly. He slowly tries to get up but falls over again. He drags himself over to the side of the cell and props himself up.*

08/31/2000 3:17 PM

Red slowly backs into the cell. He looks at hooded on the ground and smiles at him.

Somehow Red looks more alive than ever. He looks like he's tasted freedoom again. The guards slam the door shut behind him, cursing him softly.

He quickly steps on the knife still in hooded's hand, insuring the guards couldn't see it. Then as they leave he looks at hooded.

"Give it back" he says softly, cooly. --The Dark Beserker

The catatonic man watches the scene before him unravel into chaos. What his jailmates had never known was that he was once a powerful mage long before he lost his marbles. He has since lost the gift of working magic, but before that loss, he stored enough power into a plain amulet he wore around his neck. His long unused arm went to his chest and grasped it. All of a sudden, the huge pile of dead rats transformed into a squirming mass of undead rodents. The rodents ran to the undead Kender death knights and started chewing on them, surrounding them until every last topknot was covered with vermin. The catatonic man eeked out a grin, then resumed staring into space.

"I don't think so Red. Don't go getting all bushy tailed on us now. There are plenty of choice granules of dirt around for you to shuffle."

*Hooded flips the dagger into the air and catches the blade into a throwing position.*

Grog grabs Hooded by the back of his neck. He lifts him several feet off the floor until he is face to face with the ugly half ogre. "Give the orange head man back his toy," he growls. "Quit making other people feel bad," and the Grog drops him to the floor and shuffles back into the shadows.

"Alright Cut-purse, come up with a decent escape plan and I'm in. Until then..." Hooded sits against the wall and flips the dagger up and down.

Red nearly laughs as he realizes Hooded though he meant the Dagger was magical. It was best to let them all think that. They were getting their hopes up to escape. It wold taste so good.

He Smiled. "Of course you're right hooded. The dagger might just hurt me in here. Go a head keep it."

He walked back to his corner and sat down again.

"take a left out of the cell and not 100 feet away is a stairway. That's the way out."

He picked up a handfull of dirt and breathed in deeply.

"Yes, an escape plan... another escape plan. You were out for several days. Where did the guards take you?" Hooded asks before the man jumps out of striking distance.

*Watching the kender, Hooded notes his ability to use clerical magic. A possible point for future exploitation Hooded notes. Turning suspicious eyes onto Red.*

"A stairway you say... hmmm... do you have any sort of voodoo psychic connection with this dagger?"

Red looks up at hooded.

"Yes I saw the stairway before the guards cut me off. I think it goes both up and down."

He cocked his head to the side and looked at Hooded and the others. "No psychic connection.. I just forgot that the magical properties would be cancelled in here"

it's now or never he thought

"Look if you want to escape consider this, The guards are a concern, of course, But who sent the Kender Death knights? And what else is out there? I've lived in places like this for a long time.. some creatures exist only in places like this. Sometimes, those creatures are why you don't see guards too often. You'll have to ready for those creatures too"

*Hooded looks concerned at the two chattering kender. One magical kender was bad enough, two would be a scenario only the cruelest of torturers could think of. Turning to Red.*

"Hmm, you're a surprise at every corner Red. I never thought of that. I actually haven't seen any guards. Guardians yes, the strange creatures that pour in the porridge, but no official looking guards." Hooded says deep in thought. Turning to HiddenEvil. "You were out of here for five days, why? Where did you go?" Hooded asks suspiciously.

"I suppose that is my little secret. But I will tell you anyways.
I was brought up three flights of stairs. They blindfolded me but it's not hard to tell flights of stairs.
I was then dragged through what must have been three..maybe four corridors. But then, the most important thing, I could swear we went outside. It might have been just an outdoor corridor but I felt the sunlight against my face.
After that I was taken to a dark room and tortured. But i need not go into detail about that. If that helps good. If not too bad."

DarkBeserker
09/02/2000 8:31 PM

Red doesn't look up, nor does he stop his digging.

"Oh there are guards. Around 100 I'd say. But they are the least of your concerns. They can be bribed, killed, scared, or threatened."

Red is about wrist deep when he stops and removes his hands. In the small hole a stone floor can be seen. Covered by the dirt, dust, grim and everything else that's built up over the years.

"I've lived here long enough to know of the other creatures.." He looked up directly at hooded. "They will eat everything about you. Your emotions, your soul, your flesh, and your bones."

With a sigh he pushes more dirt, making the hole bigger.

"I remember when the foor was new" he mutter in the merest of whispers

"I haven't been in Kendermore for quite a while." Tolk replies. She plops down sadly in the ground. "I've missed a lot of things since I've been here. Don't get me wrong, I was thuroughly pleased to be thrown down here; what a perfect oppertunity to test my lockpicking and escape skills! But I've found that I'm not as good as I thought I was."

Shaken from his dark thoughts by Tolks sad pondering, Ghostbuster luaghs.
"I have no doubt this cell was kender proofed a long long time ago, when he (nodding at Red) was first put here."
"I too was put here a not small amount of time ago, but I know, now that Fizban is with me, that others of my clerical order walk among the people."
"There is even one in this very prison."

"Hmm, I should remember that. In fact, I can't remember anything before getting thrown in here." Hooded says, just realizing a chunk of his memory has gone. Turning to Red. "They won't get me Red. No way. I won't crack." Hooded says with only a slight tinge of doubt creeping in. Hooded walks over to Tolk and pats her shoulder. "Yes." Hooded says sagely, "you are a disgrace to kenders. You should give up now." Hooded says enjoying the insult. Drawing energy from it. Hearing the kender cleric talk of another of his order. Hooded spins around, scanning the other prisoners closely.

*'What cruel god would thrust me in here with such unsavoury company?' Hooded thinks bitterly.*

He never looks up and whispers just loud enough for everyone to hear, "I know a way out."

It was true he'd fond it years ago. Before any of the others arrived.. well at least any of these ones. They had made a minor mistake when building the cell. Red had seen it and has been hidding from everyone ever sense. --The Dark Beserker

Hooded's comment did it. Tolk had been carefully holding herself back, but his comment broke the dam. Tolk began to cry. Sitting on the ground with her head thrown back, she bawled as loud as she could, all the years of sadness finally pouring out. All she wanted was to be a good kender! And she had been, but then she had come *here*! All over! All ruined! This was something that neighter Ghostbuster *or* Fizban could fix. She had better just give up. She continued to wail.

The Catatonic man, for once since his terrible accident with magic, fouced his eyes on the others in the cell. He had heard the word "Escape". So, they planned to leave this accursed place. He quietly listned to thier plans.

Ghostbuster goes to Tolk and hugs her, trying to calm her.
"There there,Its not that bad,we'll escape, we will!"
What a horrible place this is, to turn this happy kender lady into a depressed afflicted kender.I cannot wait here for rescue, I must help her escape!
Turning to Red, he asks; "Where is this way out?"

"The ogre shambles out of his corner over to Tolk. He gently picks up the weeping kender from Ghostbusters hug. He craddles her against his big chest and tells her, "it's okay little girl, there is nothing to be a'scared of. The bad men won't hurt you. Grog won't let them."

Red lookd directly at hooded.

"Because I don't like you. I'd rather watch you grow old and die in here."

With a sigh he looks at the others. "But It's time we get out of here. All of us."

He stood up slowly.

"They are most likely already planning to kill us all. They sent or let the Kender death knghts in. They didn't come out and I was spotted outside the cell. We're too much of a risk now, they'll kill us all."

He turned around and looked at his corner. If you looked carefully you could actually see an outline of where he always sat.

"There is our way out. They built the cells in existing caves. There are gaps between the walls of the cell and the cave."

He looked at them all carefully.

"In this corner there's condinsation on the lower walls. Most lkely from water. I think there's an underground river here."

Red carefully looked at the half-ogre.

*The kender cleric goes up slightly in Hooded's estimation. Breaking stone down would either kill or exhaust the two smashing at it. Leaning back lazily, Hooded notes Red is also not joining the demolition team. Making a note to keep an eye on everyone, but Red especially Hooded picks up a handful of dirt and throws it at the female kender, waking her up.*

"Consider that a small amount of revenge for all those disgusting pictures you've drawn on my manacles over the years." Hooded says to Tolk. Looking at the multitudes of smiley faces on his manacles with an irritated grimace to his face.

Red watched the two digging and for a moment looked sad. then his face returned to it's normal lifeless expression.

He glanced at Hooded and slowly slowly made his way to the other side of the room. he made it to the far corner just as the wall exploded.

He had always known that causing a break in the wall would cause the water to force its way into the room. He also knew the force at which it woud do it would likely kill anyone nearby. It wouldn't kill him.. but the years it would take to recover, just weren't worth it.

Sowly the water stopped it was about knee deep to the humans in the room. He chuckled and looked at Hooded.

"How good of you to wake the Kender and save her life!"

Tolk had given Hooded a 'too-bad-I-don't-care-anymore glance, then had turned her attention to the smashers. Then, when the wall broke and the water flooded in, she sputtered and coughed and tried to keep above. The water (freezing cold, I presume) came up to about her chest.

09/06/2000 6:14 AM

Once she has regained her bearings, Tolk glances around for Ghostbuster. "Ghostbuster? Hello? Ghost? Where are you? Ghost?!" Her calls become frantic as she desperatly searches for the other kender, her friend.

Joe_Ghostbuster
09/06/2000 7:16 AM

Ghostbuster had noticed a break in the wall and had backed away,expecting the wall to fall.
He didn't expect almost being drowned by the icy water that swept out.
He was swept into a wall, hit his head, and lost conciousness.

*Hooded looks at his manacles and then at the torrent of water flowing into the cell. Suddenly understanding Red's plan. Hooded glares at Red. If nothing else, this was far from over. Walking over to the kenders.*

"Friends. How would you like to practise your lock-picking skills? Wouldn't that be fun! Tolk, you could restore your kenderness, only if you can get me out of these manacles though." Hooded says, trying to keep the desperation out of his voice.

Tolk believes that Ghost is in no condition for such a task, and immediately gulps a large breath of air and plunges beneath the surface. Taking out her tools, she works at the manacle for a little bit before being forced to come up for air. After a loud intake, she dives back under and works for a little while longer before successfully popping the lock. She is all smiles when she emerges again.

Hidden in a shadowed alcove, Red smiled. Already hope and fear were in abondant among the prisioners. And now he could also see hopelessness setteling so fast.

It would be a good feast. He really should have told them that this was a way out of the cell but not an escape. Magic would barely work ot here and none that would teleport them out would work. This place was still shielded.. but here he could feed.

He knew that no matter what way they went they's find skeletal remais of frmer prisoners. With the shackles still around them. Weapons to be had.

In time he'd head back to the cell and the guards would come and reseal the wall, beat him savagly and hrow him back in the cell.

It had all happened before. It would all happen again. But for now life was good.

"Hey! Weapons!" Hooded says excitedly. Equipping himself with a quaterstaff, Hooded walks back to the prisoners, unusually jovial.
"This quarterstaff is no sub for my old dagger, but..." Hooded pauses and squints his eyes at Red. "What are you smirking at Red?"

*Hooded begins to spin his newly found quaterstaff in some amazing-to-behold manauvre, while scowling at Red.*

Red pays little if any attention to the monsters. His obvious confidence draws the others towards him.

Then suddenly some might realize not only had Red ignored the hill giants but the Giants had made sure Red was well past them before springing their trap!

He breathed in deeply several times and kept waking. The taste was so sweet. His strength was growing by the second. He briefly thought about turning and ripping hooded's head off. Bt he didn't and banished the thoughts.

He'd keep them alive for a while to feed as best he could. Cursed damnping field!

thrust to the throat. Collapsing the hill giants
wind pipe. Overwhelmed by numbers however, Hooded
feels a massive hand close tightly on both his arms.
Being bodily lifted by one one hill giant while
hit with hard punches from another. The hill giant
walks down the hallway and throws Hooded into the
usual cell like a rag doll. The hill giant chuckles
deeply as he walks off. Wiping the blood of his face,
Hooded slips a key he stole off the giant into the

Red looked at the Kender at his feet and laughed.

Tey'd already feed him greatly. he felt stronger than he had in ages. Everything was good here and now.

He'd first thought that bing caught and imprisioned was the worst thing that could happen to him. But he'd feed better than ever in the first few prisons. Then they'd moved im to this accursed place!

Even here he'd found a wa to feed, to survive. it was a wonderful trap down here.

With a grin he knew how to feed even better. He pulled a small chunkof stone from the wall and threw it a Giant. The stone smashed halfway into it's face and it crumpled to the ground.

One of the remaining giants relieved itself right then, knowing true fear. It turned and ran.

Praying with all his strength for the first time, not to Fizban, but to Paladine, the Shining Warrior.

He grinned at the little one at his feet and knelt to help her up. He gentle brushed her off and smiled at her.

"Now go on to your other little friend."

He waved her away like one would a child. He was not however condesending, meerly being gentle.

Red chuckled. There just wasn't any way out of this place. It'd all been tried before. He'd tried much of it himself.

He was amused and glad to see the kender still running around. If they'd gone back to the cell he couldn't feed. So now he wold eat for a while longer.

Watching the kender run off he tried to recall what had last been down that way. He came to remember the awfull smell of decay and death. Yes.. the Stank breast was down that corridoor. The two poor kender were doomed magic or no magic... If the beast didn't get them.. it's lich master would..

"Tolk, stay behind me.I'll aproach the creature."
Praying for a light, the kender cleric watches the creature recoil slightly from the holy light but not enough to hide itself.
Its a Stank!A summoned demon from the Abyss!Its effected by my spells, but not enough, it requires pysical power to defeat it!.

He looks thoughtfully at the Stank."What we need is Grog, or another Ogre."

*Hearing the hill giants run past. Hooded scrambles back to the hole in the wall and looks out. Seeing no one except Red. Hooded notices the difference in Red's features, seeming more substantial than the thin prisoner Hooded was used to seeing. Although Red is some distance away, Hooded addresses him in a quite voice. Knowing he will hear.*

"I cannot see the others Red. Do they stand a chance of escape?"

Tolk suddenly gets a determined look on her face, and steps out infront of Ghostbuster. "Yeah, I do have an idea." She takes off her pack and removes the elven blade, then closes the pack and lifts it by one strap. With the dagger extended in one hand, and the pack swirling in the other, Tolk carefully sidesteps away from the others. She only hopes that her incredible deftness has not died in the isolation of the cell. She swung the pack around more and more, faster and faster, until she suddenly let go. With increased velocity, the pack rocketed through the air and struck the side of the creature's head. Tolk quickly assumed a battle stance, both hands on the dagger and legs prepared to move at the twitch of a claw . . .

"What now bully? hidding?"

Red laughs.

"There is no escape only Death. It seems the little ones have choosen to take the only way that there is out. DEATH!"

Red voice carries far so all can hear. As he once again laughs the giants back away clearing a path straight to hooded.

After bashing the last of the giants, Grog slumps against the wall. He is exhausted, never has he felt so much anger. He sees fire head say something to his friends and they take off down the tunnel. Grog sets down the rock that is slick with blood. He washes most of the blood off of his hands in a small puddle. He looks around the area and notices that one of the giants had a club. He picks it up and slowly shambles down the corridor after his friends, noticing for the first time a big gash on his left leg.

Ghostbuster looks up at Tolk's couragous deed.
"Tolk, you have set an example to us all!"
Summoning his plaid and silver studded hoopak, Ghostbuster sticks the pointy end into one of the Snark's four feet.
"OUHHH!!!" is the sound that greets both pack and hoopak hitting at the same time.
The Snark advances on Ghostbuster and Tolk, oblivious to Hidden Evil's presence.

Suddenly a wave of power hits the prisoners. IT IS TIME TO VISIT THE TOWER. Grog hears the voice in his head. He doesn't know where the tower is but if he can get out maybe he can find the tower. With renewed strength he runs into combat swinging his club.

HiddenEvil
09/19/2000 12:53 PM

*Hooded looks at Red and slumps to the ground.*

"Yes Red. I have lost all hope. When death finally comes, I will welcome it." Hooded says and slinks back into the cell.

*Out of sight, Hooded stands up and almost skips over to the door. Unlocking it with the key he stole, Hooded exits the cell and locks the door behind him. The others were creating a great distraction and would hopefully cover Hooded's own escape. Looking for the stairs described by HiddenEvil. Walking out, Hooded prays he won't meet up with his cellmates again. But somehow, he knows he will. Hearing a strange voice say something about a tower, Hooded's brows furrow in thought.*

Red hears the voice and screams in joy.

"IT's about freaking time!"

Red breaks ito a ru down a side corridoor, laughing all the way. Of course there was a way out and the Kender was heading in the right direction but there was a better way to the exit. Red new these pasages all to well.

Red finally made it to the small stone blocking the exit. He pulls it out with ease. He laughs because the half ogre will never fit through the small hole. Small red can barel squeeze through himself.

*As HiddenEvil raises his hands, lightning bolts and powerful bolts of energy leap from his fingertip and slam into the creature. The creature shrieks in pain but a strange voice interupts HE's chanting and he losses his train of thought. He drops to the ground with a light thud. Rolling up quickly he sees Red running and then looks at the kender. Realizing the kender are fighting for a lost cause, HE runs past them, dodges the creature and, shrinking himself a little, follows Red through the hole.*

*Hooded walks through the unguarded hallways outside the jailroom. Seeing a manhole, Hooded drops through in front of Red.*

"Hey Red. Thought you might have an escape plan." Hooded says and snaps his fingers. Bringing his dagger instantly into a tight grip. "Where do you... think you're going?" Hooded turns to see Him appear out of the shadows. "Well well. This is quite the party." Hooded says and turns in Red's direction to see where he is heading.

ooc; Grrrr! I had posted the most beautiful of kender antics, but somehow it didn't get posted!!!! Well, here's about as much of it as I remember, though it is a little late in the game;

After Hidden's bolt had fizzled off, Tolk took a running start and launched herself, landing on the skank's back. With a powerful kender thrust, the jabbed the dagger in the creature's neck and brought it down. The skank cried in agony, then curved its head and grabbed Tolk by a topnotch and hurled her to the wall. She was caught up in the sheer excitement of the whole battle, and as she rose, leaning heavily on one leg with blood pouring over her face from a gash on her head, she also wore the largest kender smile anyone had seen on her since she arrived.

The_Thorn
09/21/2000 10:52 AM

Grog clubs the Skank like he was playing a game of kenderball. The skank flies across the room and smashes into it head first. The half ogre turns to his friends. "We must find tower," he mumbles.

09/21/2000 4:42 PM

*Hooded spins the dagger into the top of his boot. After resheathing it, he looks up at Red.*

"I reluctantly agree Red. Anything to get out of here." Hooded says and looks up. A small platinum light seems to twirl above himself and Red sporadically. Recognizing clerical magic of good. Hooded snares at the kender cleric. "Take it outside Fizban Boy."

"Smart move hooded. And I thought you didn't have any brains"

Red was the only one that coud get them out, he knew that. He smile. This place had too many secrets, too many traps, too many monsters.

Red stepped to one of the cell walls and pushed a brick forward. He quickly ran to another wall and pushed on a seond brick then stuck him hand into the indent and did something no eyes could see.

A section of wall opened.

"It's up a ways you should worry. There's a cavern full of undead we have to pass." with a glance at the Kender, "Divine magic has a way of NOT working in there too"

Just then 15 trolls leap out at the Party, letting Red past.

Grog is tired, and he must find this tower. Hearing people talk about outside he follows the voices. He is quiet this time, silently dissolving in the shadows. He moves around the party who is suddenly battling the trolls. Grog hates the smelly beasts but they are not his target. He finds who he is looking for, fire head. The ogre slides up to Red. his hand shoots out in the same move he made on the Hooded One. He clasps Red by the throat and bellows, "Grog must reach tower. Show Grog how to leave now!"

He is emediatly energized, he feels closer to his god.He passes it to Tolk.
He runs forward, recognizing Red's voice as he taunts Hooded.
"No Evil one, you will not have our despair!"
Saying a prayer to Paladine, he jumps after Red, melting into the wall until he grasps a hand and teleports himself and Red by the power of Paladine into another place.
The place is a shrine to Paladine, in his aspect as the Platinium Dragon."Here your powers are weak, and my powers more powerful, Dark One.And while we are still in the prison,here there is much less despair for you to feed on."

"Ohh,haha!Well, buh bye!"And he dissapears, after making sure to focus the power of the shrine on Red and maybe do something to rid him of evil.
He appears in front of Tolk, still luaghing."Oh, that was funny!Come on Tolk,Grog."He takes each by the hand and teleports them to where hooded is."Now,haha!,the way out is thata way!"
He sets off, still giggling.

"Paladine, it's been a long time since one of yours has been so stupid. Then again you do have a kender cleric!"

Red gets up and cracks his neck. He takes in a deep breath. The kender might very well have trapped him here, but not for the reason's the kender thought.

"All this hope and FAITH! I could feed forever. The strength I am gaining"

Red smiled and walked over to the dragon. He whispered something in it's ear.

"Well Pal old man, I think It's time I leave your little Temple and play with some more people."

Red suddenly turned into a rat, and with one more grin to the Dragon, he scurried through a crack in the wall.

For many people and gods have tricked the Platinium Dragon,and many have tricked the Shining Warrior. They are fighters,defending from evil.
But no-one has ever tricked Fizban,and no-one, no-one,has ever tricked a kender.And the hat still smiles.

She began to wonder what it would be like to kiss him, as she had never kissed another kender besides her parents. It was a very intriguing thought to her, and she became so involved with the idea that she forgot to watch where she was headed and flipped head over heels on a rock.

"Some kender. Can't even keep ya footing. Your parents must be ashamed." Hooded says and turns to the kender cleric. "Where is this promised exit? If this is a trap Baby-face..." Hooded waves his dagger around for a while in a threatening motion.

The Guards arrive at the cell. @0 burly humans enter leaving 10 behind. They see the hole in the wall and run through it.

The 10 guards outside don't notice the door is open a crack and they barely watch it. The cell was empty after all. For when they arrived Red was nowhere to be seen.

Most of the guards were afriad but soe of the newer ones had too mch confidence. Red almost laughed as he saw the guard he'd trrorfied earlier.

Red slammed into the door with all hs strength bursting open, knocking over 3 guards. Suddenly he was visible in the doorway holding a rusty short sword.

The guard he'd scared earlier screamed and ran. Three of the guard backed off after this. Two of them rushed red with their clubs. The last guard stood still in fear.

Fear. Fear was creeping into each of the guards, Red was insuring that. All the fear he'd absorbed since his mock escape attempt was now being instantly poured int these 10 guards.

Red would escape.

"Wait, I hear something!" Tolk says, hearing the guards enter. "Ghostbuster, whatever you do, it had better be now!" She looked directly into his eyes. There was no way she would allow herself back into the cell alive. Too long had she been keyed up, and her mind coulnd't take much more. This was her last chance to see the sun, and she depended on her kender friend to help. Her eyes pleaded.

"Perhaps...Yes!Thank you Paladine,becuase of you I have the strength!"
Ghostbuster suddenly starts to grow,become larger,more menacing,more...golden.
And Ghostbuster the Gold Dragon roars in the joy of his powerful new body. He fires a great ball of fire at the ceiling of the jail,making a great hole.
Picking Tolk up in the curl of his tail and Hooded and Grog in his claws,the Golden transformed kender flys out from the prison,into sunshine,and onto a nearby grassy hill.
When he lands and transforms back into a kender there are tears in his eyes,and he hugs Tolk happily.
But then his eyes turn back to the prison,and he mutters,"Red is still in there.But I don't think he'll stay there for long."

The group is knocked out, when everyone awakens and opens their eyes. They see everyone sitting around in the same cell as usual. The once gold dragon, suddenly a kender again.

Meanwhile Red was somewhere deep in the prison's corridoors.

After dealing with the first 10 guards by either scaring them or killng them Red had run into a second group. It was only 5 guards and he was sure he could deal with them. He'd rushed them, his rusty sword stabbing at them.

He'd killed one when his arm started to feel like it was on fire. He was bleeding! One of the guards had an obviously Magical sword! At that mment for the first time ever Red knew fear. Not just the taste of it, he felt it himself.

He'd turned and ran into the deepest levels od the Prison. The guards had caught him and savagly beat him withfist and weapon hilts. Red fond himself bleeding everytime one of the weapons it him.

The guards tossed him into one of the small dark and wet cells on the lowest levels. Theses cells killed people. Few ever came out of theses cells alive.

He'd never felt such pain. Red thought the guards had wounded him enough to kill him. several rats scurried over Red as he laid curled up in a corner f the small cell.

Remembering the fresh air of outside, Hooded closes his eyes and tries to remember the sensation of breathing fresh air but can't. Was it an illusion? A dream? Or did it happen? Hooded doesn't bother to work it out. It doesn't matter. Hearing the kender's talking back and forth, Hooded regards them through squinted eyes. Picking up the jist of the conversation, Hooded stands up and walks over irritably.*

"For the gods sake you abomination of a kender. You finally get a good idea to kill yourself and you can't even do that properly. Hurry up, get on with it." Hooded says annoyed and throws Tolk the dagger that used to belong to Red. "Slit your wrists. Not much pain that way."

"No, Damnit!"Ghostbuster shouts at Hooded.
He throws the dagers well out of reach."You may be the bully here,but leave her alone!"
He then returns to Tolk,hugging her,cudling her, saying over and over that she didn'tneed to die,that she deserved to live!

Tolk is no longer capable of speech, and lays in Ghostbuster's embrace, sobbing gentally.

Grog walks over to where Red lays in a heap. The ogre picks up the evil man and stares at his battered face questioningly. He then drops Red uncerimoniously back to the floor. He spits on the battered man and turns back to his shadows.

Ghostbuster barely glances at Red's battered form.He is concentrating all his clerical power on one thing,healing Tolk of her madness.
Paladine,help me!Heal this lovely little kender woman!
As light seeps from his hands and travels down Tolks body,her head is enshrined with silver shine.
Help her Paladine,Help her!And Ghostbuster pulls more power into Tolks healing.

Tolk had cried herself to sleep, where in the depths of her sub-concious the dreams of dark places where there light never reaches were blotted out by the greatness of Ghostbuster's power. The dark creases and lines about her face gradually diminished, making her seem more her real age. Her ragged, fear-chocked breathing regulated, and for a brief moment she was still. Then, her eyes opened, and she looked around as one looking in on the world for the first time. Her head was clear, adn she looked to Ghostbuster. "I know you . . ." She said, "But, where am I?"

*Hooded looks at the battered form of Red. Admiring the unknown torturers skill, Hooded bends down for a closer look.*

"I like the work the torturer has done to your hand. It's so malformed now. How did he manage to bend that bone to such an angle?" Hooded says and watches Grog spit on Red. "I thought you guys were buddies?" Hooded asks Grog. Not interested in the ogre's reply, but the days were long in the cell and the time had to be filled in somehow.

A calmness and accpetance has replaced the wild, frightened animal look in Tolk's eyes. "At least now we aren't alone." She says quietly.

"We aren't alone."Agrees Ghostbuster,and kisses Tolk.

Tolk returns the kiss, the feeling of loneliness and desperation that had been growing in her began to subside. She even said to herself that whatever it was she did to be thrown in, she was glad she did it. Then, something came to her. "Wait!" She started searching through her pouches wildly, then pulled out a ring. "It's a transportaion ring, I'm sure of it!"

Grog stares at the group from the shadows. Only a faint outline of his body can be seen. He realizes that the crazy man that didn't try to escape with them has quit talking to himself. Grog needed some help.

*Hooded goesand gets his tin cup and slides it up and down the bars. Making a repitive annoying clanking noise. Seeing the ring.*

"Where did you get that ring Cowering Kender?" Hooded asks Tolk. The ring did seem kind of magical, but it was hard to tell in the magic nullifying cell.
