03/17/2001 2:42 PM

A message posted in every town reads:
To those interested,
The Thorn is looking for new recruits to the order of silver robes. A newly sanctioned order of mages, headed by the Thorn is looking for new young talent. As a silver robe, your number one goal will be magic (like all mages). The only difference is that you will be sworn to protect it at all costs.
Silver robes can pull magic from all three moons. Those inducted (who have already passed their test) will have full access to the Silver Tower and it's resources. The Thorn will train new silver robes until he feels they are ready to take on their own apprentices. To apply, visit the Thorn at his home, the Silver Tower.
Sincerely,
The Thorn

"Hm, always wanted to join a guild."

Dylar teleports to the gate of the silver tower and knocks."The light at the end of the tunnel may only lead to darkness, but also at the end of that tunnel there will be...ME!"

"Well, I already practice just about all the magic, and silver would go with my eyes, I guess I'm in!"

Wynter walks up to the door and knocks.

"Why hello, Dylar!""I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood."

"Welcome to my home," says the Thorn. "I take it you are here to become mages of the silver robes? Please come in and make yourself comfortable." He leads them upstairs to the library, the nicest room in the tower.

Wynter sits down in one of the many comfortable chairs. "Oh, that's nice," she says outloud, exclaiming her comfort."I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood."

"I enjoy reading in here, so I like to be comfortable. Now, what makes you interested in becoming a mage of the silver robes?" asks the Thorn.

Wynter Firecaster
03/20/2001 3:25 PM

"Well, I heard that you may practice any form of magic, all of the three moons, and you fight to protect magic. I already do both of these things and silver would go with my eyes, so I was all for it." Wynter leaned back and enjoyed the chair some more."I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood."

The Thorn extends his hand, accepting Wynter into the order. He moved his other hand from above her head downwards, and the mages robes turned to silver.

"Welcome to the order. As my apprentice I will offer advice to you and some guidance. You have free access to the library and can ask me anything. All I ask is that you protect magic to the best of your abilities, any kind of magic. Anything else Wynter," asks the mage.

*Aleximi teleports to the front door of this....place. Knocks twice*
"Even though we've had our problems.... I hope we can work them out for the understanding of our magic? So..umm.... mind if I learn more with you all? This IS.... a new order,too, right?"

The_Thorn
03/27/2001 1:25 AM

The Thorn eyes Aleximi. "My order is new compared to the others, but for me, it seems like it's been around for a lifetime. I have no problem with you wanting to join, my only concern is a recurrence of something one of my agents told me about. Something about making a deal with Fistandantilus. If it's power you crave, I can give you that, but that is not what the order is about. This order is set up to protect magic. Do you understand so far?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

"I have traveled the world many times over, looking for new ways to use may magic and to strengthen it. I live through my magic. Without it I cease to exsist. I live for new experience of magic and will protect it at any cost. Your new order is apealing to me. Are the doors to your tower closed? OR are you still accepting new recruits?"

Wynter Firecaster
03/27/2001 8:54 AM

"Thorn, I only ask one thing of you for the safety of all those who I may come in contact with. Please, sir, never send me on a mission with Aleximi. He may not come back...alive." She left the tower, giving the Black robed mage a hard, cold stare.

"This is what you get for placing me in a dragon orb, and jutting a sword through me. Don't expect me to be nice to you, unless my life is staked on it." She waved her hand and teleported away from the Silver Tower.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

The Thorn smiled. Rivals, he thought, that had never happened before. It would be interesting to deal with.

Addressing the new mage, "My doors are always open. Do you have a name and do you understand what the order is about?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

03/28/2001 2:56 PM

Tiver walked up to the door of the Silver Robe's Tower his hoopak in hand and his manner colorful with his hair cut just below his ears. Though Tiver liked the way his hair was he truely did miss his topknot, but as he told himself it will grow back. Tiver's friend Whisper, the mist wolf, was at his side as stopped infront of the door watching the two mages talk. Then Tiver counted again seeing Alex.

"Alex... ummmmm, Alex your here I thought you went to the Dark robes?" Tiver said quickly not noticing his hands was moving in and out of his pouches. "So what brings you here? I was just on my way somewhere oh yeah I was on my way to... well somewhere." Tiver said with a smile as he bent down eyeing a ring that fell to the ground picking it up and sticking it in his pouch as he turned to the other mages. "Now what was I here for? Oh, yeah I was wanting to know if any of you seen an elven Silver robed mage with a shadow like staff? Anyone seen him?" Tiver Neehigh

The_Thorn
03/28/2001 8:43 PM

"Well, Triton, the order is set up to protect all magic upon Krynn. If you can pledge that, then I have no problem letting you into the order, although I would like to know a bit more about yourself."

"My kender friend, I don't know who you speak of. The only elf in my order is a her. Is it Wynter that you seek, for she is not here right now." The mage smiles brightly at Tiver. He had seen the kender pocket several items fro the tower, not knowing that the only way to take something from the tower was to have it given. A powerful spell, placed upon the tower by the Thorn's master, Kistar, had done this for just the occasion that a kender would stop by. Once the kender left,everything would return ro it's rightful place. This also helped to deter thieves."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Master Mage Aleximi
03/28/2001 9:13 PM

Aleximi smiles kindly at The Thorn and nods his head in acknowledgement.
"I believe I do understand, Thorn.... but if I do anything wrong in your order... let me know. I don't want to be a burden.... and yes, I do seek power but I also seek to protect my,err....OUR magic from those who oppose it and so forth. Teach me, oh wise one."

The mage continue to smile, glad to be free of the Dark Master Mage Fistandantilus. "Now...ummm.... where shall I go? and what shall I/we do next?" Aleximi chuckles realising he's as clueless as a newborn Kender in a nest of Dragons.

03/28/2001 9:58 PM

After much debate, the Thorn decides. He waves his hand from head to foot, changing Aleximi's robes to silver. 'I have nothing I require of you right now. You are free to go as you choose. You may want to stay and check out the library upstairs. I will check up on you to make sure you are upholding your part of the bargain. Also, i may call on you from time to time if i need your assistance. And feel free to come back to the tower anytime (this can be done by posting at the silver tower thread, that's how you get in touch).""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Kalia walked in and placed her hand on Thorns' shoulder. She smiled at him and laughted softly.

"See I told you I would come...So...what do you think of changing this white dress of mine silver? I hope you all don't mind a Dragon joining your ranks?"

She smiled and brushed her silvery hair out of her face, her golden eyes lit from within from her mirth.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

Master Mage Aleximi
03/29/2001 12:33 AM

Aleximi nods and walks up the stairs toward the Library. On his way, Aleximi has one of those Huma and his Silver Dragon visions for some strange reason. The mage falls to the ground, terribly weakened.... he looks back and notices his spirit-cousin "How beautiful she is...." Aleximi spoke in a low tone that most PEOple can't hear.

Staff of Magius in hand, Aleximi Majere tries to stand up and continue up the stares as though nothing happened, hoping no one heard or saw what just happened. Aleximi smiles remembering the vision..... the final act of love between Huma and his Love... a Silver Dragon....

*cough*
"Weird.... this cough has lessened since my possession..... but....shouldn't I be weaker and worse now that HE'S gone?.... I wonder....." Aleximi spoke to himself, and as he wonders... he thinks he hears an evil laughter in the back of his head.....

"Thorn you ask infomation about me. I am a student of magic. Magic flows through my veins instead of blood. To protect magic is to protect myself. I am drawn to your tower like a kender to a adventure. Everything else is unkown. Do you ask the shadow what he hides? Do you ask a gnome its full name. Neither shall you ask Triton about himself. Just know this Thorn if I swear myself to you and your silver robes then I shall not fail you. If you ever need a hand or a spell I shall be there with a spoken spell."

Tiver_Neehigh
03/29/2001 10:28 AM

Tiver sat there on the ground at all the mages feet his hands slowly at work as he stood up, and adjusted the heavy sword on his back. Turning to the mage in the door he said "Thank you very much Sir Mage," he said with a frighted and puzzled look on his face.

Tiver shook his head and sighed as he reached over and patted Whisper on the head. "Well, Kalia it was great to see you again since you dissappeared that one day and thanks for healing me, and for you Alex you take care of yourself."

"Bye everyone!" Tiver said as they turned and walked off everyone could hear the wolf and Tiver agrueing about someone named Aldra.

"With you pledge,"says the Thorn to Triton, "and my experience with you," he says to Kalia, "I think you would both make fine additions to the order." With the same movement he's already made twice that day, the mage changes their robes to silver. "The spells that you will be able to cast from all three moons will come to you. Most can't be found in a book, they are just given. And many don't obey the laws. One of my very first spells healed with a silver light, something I wasn't aware that sorcery could do."

Turning to Kalia, "I'm glad you took me up on my offer. How have you travels been since the last time we saved the world? Any headway on you quest?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

03/30/2001 12:00 AM

Looking up to the imposing Silver Tower, Yuric wondered silently to himself, "will he even care to see me? Will he even recognize me? Does he even know I exist?"
Regardless of his doubts he approched the tower, knowing it neccessary to speak to the Thorn regarding the Silver Robes. He was determined to discuss the differences in their lives, determined to evaluate the Silver Robes, and, most importantly, determined to speak to the man that could possibly justify his entire life.
Brushing his shoulder-length raven hair down over his eyes, Yuric spoke a single word and began his flight to the top of the tower. Knowing that to make an impressive impression was to aid his cause, Yuric uttered another arcane phrase. Without hesitation or fear of repremand, he passed through the wall into the Thorn's private chambers.
"It is good to finally meet you. We need to speak a while," Yuric stated to the Thorn.

The_Thorn
03/30/2001 1:17 AM

"Hello...brother. Long time since we talked. You look like you've taken the years well. What have you been up to?" asks the Thorn, now distracted from Kalia with this interesting turn of events."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

03/30/2001 3:35 AM

Upon seeing the mage enter through the wall, Triton steps into the shadows. Hands appear from his robe, and they start to draw arcane symbols in the air. He did not know if this was friend or foe, but he did know his promise to the master of the tower and that was enough.
He began to speak the arcane language he was acustomed to, but words he never knew. His silver robes began to sparkle like silver when struck by the sun.
A silver but opque circle formed in front of him, and shot over to Thorn. The circle engulfed Thorn completely.
"A protection spell so this is what this new order offers me from the start I am pleased," Triton whispers to himself.

lordyuric
03/30/2001 12:50 PM

Yuric laughed half-heartedly. He knew their was no need for protection. This was his brother and he wished him no harm.

"So, you go by the name 'the Thorn'? Interesting choice," Yuric stated. "Have a seat, I have quite a story to tell."

"I have spent the last many years in a land known to it's natives as Crinn. A group of men and dragons began to form while I was there. They called themselves the Whitecloaks. These men sought the destruction of all magic, claiming it was in the interests of the people. Most commoners sided with them, as they too could not control the magic. I founded a group known as the Blackcloaks to defend the magic of Crinn. You see me now, still wearing my Blackcloak, the last Blackcloak. A great war was fought, and it appeared that we won. However, so much damage had been done to Crinn that it was no longer inhabitable. When we used our magic to rebuild the lands, something went wrong. At first no one understood what it was. One night, in a dream, the goddess of magic spoke to me. She told me she had been weakened during the fight and was dieing. She told me to leave. I planestepped and ended up here. All attempts I've made to return have been in vain. So I have decided to come to you. Not to don a silver robe, as I will always wear my Blackcloak, but to warn you and help you. Do not let the magic of your Silver Robes go unchecked, as the Whitecloaks did not harm the goddess of magic, we Blackcloaks did. I learned then that it is possible to drain too much magic, and with that will come an end."

Yuric considered how to phrase his final statement. He understood he was a guest here, but he knew, too, that unless the Thorn listened to him, this land stood to face a far greater disaster. Directness seemed the only possible way.

"I am here to help and to study your men. I swear to you by the magic itself, there is a traitor either amongst you or moving to join your ranks. The traitor will be exposed within a tenday."

Yuric let his words linger. He didn't expect the Thorn to be pleased with this revalation, but hoped he was a good enough leader to understand the threat posed.

Kalia_Majere
03/30/2001 4:07 PM

Kalia stepped forward resting her hand on Thorn's shoulder. Her golden eyes swept over the man who called himself Yuric.... Cautiously she brushed her silver hair away from her face.

"Yuric is it? Well Yuric...for ones like me...I am magic...to protect it is to myself...as well as our new friend here... My magic stemms from my soul, my very being..I do not pull magic from the world...I can use my own abilities to cast, and conjure..." she paused for a moment to deminstrate.

She held her staff in front of her...then let go..the staff stood up on its own accord. the wood and the platinum dragon claw disappeared, leaving only the Amethyst crystal behind. The crystal itsef began to shine with a bright white light, so bright that the amethyst color was gone.

The light surrounded Kalia too, blotting out her form to all....when the light faded, a Dragon, 1/4 of her Normal size, stood where the woman once did.

To all the dragon was bright as the light around her. Crystal scales, each one faceted and perfect. four sets of horns crowned the Dragons head. A diadem of platinum encircled her neck, and in the center was the Amethyst Crystal. The dragon folded her Large Irridecent FEATHERED wings to her side. mumbling two spells, the dragonfear faded, and a shadow fell over her scales muting the bright light reflected by them.

"I am magic...to destroy it is to destroy me.... and I am not ready to leave this plane as of yet...there is much for me to do here.

03/30/2001 6:52 PM

"Thank you Kalia," says the Thorn. "I know that you are not the traitor, but it troubles me that someone would try to do this. Although, it is to be expected. I just hope it is someone who wants to join and not someone who has."

Eyeing his little brother, he replies, "If you are warning me then I thank you. If you have come to watch over me, I appreciate the kindness but I can handle this problem. I suggest that you set up a new life here, make some other contacts, for I won't be here all the time. As an ally, you can stand by my side anytime.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

03/31/2001 3:06 AM

"Brother, your confidence is hardly reassuring. Remember, their is a fine line between confidence and stupidity. 'Ware the ones closest to you. I to not know who the traitor is, but the shadows tell no lies."

"Kalia, your showmanship is fine, however, it is just that. I understand that the illusion of grandeur is mighty indead, but do not dissilusion yourself with it. No magic stems from within. The gods give as they see fit and take as they see fit."

Yuric inhaled slowly. "I apologize for my tone. I do not mean to upset you," he apologetically said to Kalia. "I've just seen power corrupt too many. I have found only a single race more hungry for power and magic than humans. The dragons, as you, are the most power-hungry race in general. I try not to insult or belittle you, and I understand I do it pourly. Just keep yourself in check. Understand that my brother taught you and blessed you with a gift from the gods. Look to him always as a superior, not an equal. But do not follow blindly, for he, as I, as all setient beings, may be led astray."

"Enough of the lecture, I am due to talk you to death soon. Brother, shall we drink to this reuniting? I've many fine Elven wines and Dwarven ales. And, if you're really feeling either gloriously happy or unbelievably stupid, I've still three flasks of a brew from a Cloud Giant that'd knock a Dwarf from his feet."

"Let me ask you this you can you tell me how this 'traitor' betray Thorn or is it the order of the silver robes he betrays?" Triton thinks a second before speaking once more this time in a low and thoughtful tone. "Yuric you have not been here long and already you have disrespected our entire order. Do not judge what the shadows hide if you do not walk them or know its secrets. You see I have walked the shadows for years and I will walk them for years to come, does that make me evil. Understand I walk them for the advancement for my art. You see magic to me is my life's blood. I do not use magic to abuse. My ambitions are great but not that great if they were sir blackcoat then I would not have joined this order to protect it. I do not mean to disrespect you. You are the brother of the master of this tower and from what you have told me very powerful, but things here are different. Now if there is a traitor then he will be weeded out over time lets not make a fuss over someone who may not be here now. Now it is time to celebrate our new order."

03/31/2001 6:35 AM

A rippled went through the air, Wynter appearing the room. She saw the three mages and the miniature crystal dragon in the room. "I never leave some place special to me without something to protect it," she said as a small ring appeared in her hands. "I left it in the tower before I left. Don't let me stop you from drinking. In fact, may I have a drink myself? I find traveling is very tiring."

"I heard about the traitor. Thorn, I swear on the magic my father and I hold sacred that I will not betray you. If you need any proof of me, I'd gladly dive into the Abyss to defend the magic I hold dear. I will take on any mission you deem me worthy of, with," Wynter paused a moment,"with whoever you believe I should be sent with. I am in your service always." She inclined her head humbly. Her staff glowed with an eerie orangish light, showing its gratitude as well.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

04/01/2001 9:15 AM

All of a sudden a bright, irredecent light swamped the room, leaving the inhabitants dazed, blind and confused. As the light began to dim the magi and the crystal dragon stared suspiciously at the cloked figure that seemed to seep out of the light. They all stared, unsure whether to attack frist and ask questions later, or whether to let the new-comer declare their business.

The cloked figure took two steps towards the Thorn before removing the hood which hid the inhabitant from view. The material fell from a mane of shining silver hair. Almond shaped eyes held the Thorn to them as the Wilder elf removed the cloke from her shoulders. Tattos adorned her, a dove outlined on her cheek, a half sun/moon design adorning her right shoulder blade, a dragon snaking ornately from her left wrist to the top of the arm.

Her liquid silver, mirror-like eyes roamed over the companions, lingering on the form of Yuric a little longer than the others, seeming to apprase him with one glance. The stranger turned back towards the Thorn, and for the first time since she arrived spoke in a soft, melodius voice....

"Greetings Master Thorn, I have come to join your order."

Yuric laughed to himself.

"'Tis rather rude to enter without permission or announcement, lady."

Yuric sighed.

"So much for that drink in piece."

04/01/2001 4:59 PM

"I would ask which lady you are talking to, but I am not stay long. I must continue with my business elsewhere. I don't think I need to leave my rings this time," she said, slipping the ring back on her finger. "The tower is in good hands. Good day, lords and ladies." She bowed and waved her hand again, teleporting with a wave of ripples.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

"I am sorry, Lord Yuric, allow me to introduce myself," the wilder elf smiled as she kept his gaze fixed, "My name is Mirror. You need know nothing else about me apart from the fact that I wish to, also, become a protector of the magic." She bowed then, her eyes returning to those of Yuric, holding them fast.

04/02/2001 2:03 AM

"Know nothing of you? Ha. I try to leave blind faith to the priests. And the gods know we've enough priests running around. However, you're not my business, you're my brother's. And I will stand by him in his decision." Yuric laughed as the Mirror's gaze held fast. His skin simply grew over his eyes making for a rather displeasing appearance.

"Brother, ware my words, the shadows spoke."

"I know I can do this, girl. I can, can't I?" Michael questioned his determination to his dog. "I've got to do this. Magic is all I have left. And I'm no good at it."

Michael Palin was taller than the average human, yet incredibely scrawny. His ebon hair made his pale complexion extremely prodominant. The boy was barely 15 years old when his father sent him to the tower. He knew that if he failed here, he would spend his life wandering, as a failure.

"Oh please, please let me join Mr. the Thorn," he murmured. "No, no, that'll never do."

Michael knocked on the door and made sure his dog was properly leashed, then waited for a reply, still unsure of how to ask to join.

Triton turned to face Thorn with a forced smile he spoke "I do not mean any disrespect to you lord of the tower."
He then turned to face Yuric. "Remember blackcloack you are but a guest in this tower. Mirror is but a magic user who wishs to keep things a secret. In a world like this, this is a safe thing to do. Even though you try to fight everyone remember you can easly become the one everyone fights. Watch your toungue and I think you owe Mirror an appology she did nothing but try to join the order which I am apart of not you. You see me and Mirror are alike just different ways of going about things. I hide things in shadows because that is how I work. She uses mirrors to blind the truth from everyone. What that truth is we may not know, but as long as we know that she is going to protect magic and our order and not cause chaos to it then I say we take her and welcome her like we should and not doubt her because she lacks trust in us."

04/02/2001 12:16 PM

"Thankyou, my Lord Triton," Mirror replyed as she looked back at Yuric, her gaze steady. He saw himself reflected in her liquid eyes and turned away instantly. Mirro then turned her attention to the Thorn.
"I am sorry, Master Thorn, for not trusting you, but I have my reasons which are personal to me. All I want is to protect the magic from the evil that I feel is approaching. I hope you do not judge me from my actions here tonight." She bowed in reverence to The Thorn, her eyes returning to his as she did so..........

"This is a lot to consider," says the Thorn. "First, there is an untrained mage at my door. Triton, would you be kind enough to let him in. Second, Yuric, I believe you entered my tower unannounced and by magic so I believe you owe Mirror an apology. Finally, in light of the recent information I have been given, I must consider applicants to the order carefully. For your request Mirror, I will sleep on it. You are all free to stay in the tower. It is magically protected, so harm won't come to you through magical means here. Now I will retire for the evening. I would have that drink brother if you would join me. And Kalia, I would also like to speak to you in private.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

"Thakyou, Master Thorn, for your honesty. Knowing that i have not endered myself to you because of the way I made my entrance and my behaviour since i arrived I can understand why you feel the need to think carefully before making your decision. I shall await here for your decision." Mirror said as she placed her slender elven form in one of the many high backed charis that littered the room.

04/02/2001 10:04 PM

Yuric now laughed whoe-heartedly.

"Brother, I mean you no harm, as you well know. However, I am not one so quick to trust as yourself. I have seen a world destroyed because I trusted. Pray the gods that it doesn't happen here. Ah, yes, the drink. We shall have that now."

Yuric began to walk across the room.

"Showmanship is fine and all, but you need not show your 'oh so wondrous magic' to the likes of me. And the shadows will keep me updated on all of you." Yuric said in a rather nonchallant manner.

As Yuric rested his arm on his brother's shoulders, he whispered in his ear, "it's not Kalia I don't trust, it's those other two. The shadows are avoiding them."

Triton spoke a single word and vanished to reappear at the entrance to the tower. He took a step back to look at the silver tower. The glory of the tower was unknown to him until then. My magic rest and depends on this place he thinks to himself. Then slowly turning around, he took a look at the young mage who was walking up to the tower. With a smile he awaits his arrival.
"Many years ago I was just like him. I wanted to become a magic user so bad I would have died. Now it looks like death may come to me from another means. It doesnt matter now the only thing that matters is this newby to my art," Triton said but only to himself.

Mirror
04/03/2001 10:34 AM

Mirror sat alone in the large room, thinking.

"Why does he not trust me?" she mumbled to herself, "None of them seem to." She stood up and began to walk around the room, looking at interest at the many magical spellbooks on the shelves, collected from years of tireless dedication. She sensed powerful protection spell on all of the books, so, wisely, she did not touch. "If only they knew what I had been through, if only they knew how much I have suffered for the love of my art!" She began to let the hard exterior shell that she had built around herself drop, ever so slightly. Yuric's words had stung her deeply. "Showmanship! How dare he!!!" she began to seethe, "I am not the one swanning around this place like some kind of Hero of the Lance!"

She stopped in her pacing and seething to rest at the window. The scene before her was truly beautiful. Having looked upon the true beauty of nature she closed her reflective eyes and breathed deeply, exhaling through her nose. She always felt more calm when looking out upon nature. As she opened her eyes she subcounciously traced the outline of the dove on her cheek. She looked out of the window and saw Triton conversing with a young man. She could see the magic strong in him, yet it was untamed.

"Looks intersting," she said softly to herself, the hard exterior now back firmly in place. With one soft word she was outside with the two, listening intently to what they were saying......

"Welcome to the silver tower. Leave your bags here I shall make sure they are taken to your room. My name is Triton. The lord of the tower Thorn has instructed me to see you in. If you would take a step closer and we shall go to your room. I will have water and food sent there. Once you are ready you can join the rest of us for drinks. Now close your eyes this transportation spell can leave you dizzy for a second if you dont."
Trition looked at the new arrival and started his spell.
"It is getting dark dont worry I shall answer all of your questions once we are inside you had a hard trip I think you deserve to relax," Triton stopped the young mage from talking then they disappeared.

"Th.th.th.thank you Mr. Triton. I'm no.no.no.not as bi.bi.bi.big as you." Michael stuttered. "Mr. Thorn, is he ni.ni.ni.nice?"

The boy shook with fear and frustration. He was so frightened at what would happen to him should he fail. He shook his head to remove the fear, realizing he must stand confident.

"Thank you for the food and drink kind, Mr. Triton. It is much appreciated. Must we hurry to speak to Mr. Thorn, or could I have a moment to rest after my ardous journey to reach the tower?"

The boy could feel the confidence growing as he listened to his on voice. And he sure did want that rest. He had trekked eleven days on foot to reach the tower.

Triton flashed Micheal a warm smile.
"Don't worry everything will be fine as long as you have faith in your art. Remember we were all once at your stage no matter how powerfuil we beome. As for Thorn he is a honest and just man. Dont worry he will treat you right. His brother is the one you will have to watch out for. Take as long as you
want. If you do not come down tonight I shall cover for you. I will make food and drink is sent up to you as soon as they can. For now rest . Welcome
Michael to the tower of the silver robes enjoy your stay, I hope you are here for a long time."
Triton spoke his word of magic and left the room, to reappear next to Mirror. A large smile graced his face.
"That kid is going to be someting he is nervous now but from the looks of things he is on the right path, all he carries with him are spell books I wish I had
his dedication at his age."
The silver robbed mage was quiet for a second and looked away from Mirror. "I hate to say this but I think we may have to stick together I can use an ally."

04/03/2001 5:03 PM

Wynter sat in the library reading a book that she found very appealing...Every Spell Having To Do With Fire. She sat at a desk in one of the towers comfortable chairs(in which, Wynter had a nice smile on her face) studying the book and practicing the not to extravagent ones that wouldn't burn down the tower. She wrote them down in her spell book so she would have them later and continued reading through it.

She became distracted after so long, thinking of the traitor who was or soon would be in the ranks of the silver robes. She knew her inner self, and she would never betray the magic gods for some god that only wanted power, or any other reason. She shut her spell book and the book in front of her, leaning back in the chair. She opened her pack and placed her spell book back in it and sat in the chair, quietly thinking to herself.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Yuric sat alone in his rooms after the drinks he shared with his brother and Kalia. He had spoken for quite a time with the two of them, and the two of them seemed happy together. Yuric wondered if the two realized what they shared. He could not remember his brother looking at a woman like that since very early childhood. He wished the best for the two of them.

"Shades of blue, Shades of red, open the way!" Yuric began.
"Shades of white, Shades of black, show me the day!"
"Shades of green, Shades of brown, let me see!"
"Shades of yellow, Shades of violet, what will be!"

Yuric sat back and watched the shadows play out on the wall. It seemed that there no longer was a traitor in the midst.

"Strange." Yuric muttered. "I should report this to my brother immediately."

As he watched the end of the shadow dance he understood. There was not a traitor anymore. There were two.

04/03/2001 11:24 PM

"I was thinking the same thing aswell, Lord Triton." Mirror said, agreeing with the mage, "For some reason they all seem mistrustful of me, though they have no need to feel that way," Mirror hated to feel like an outcast, and Triton could tell that the strain of all this was begining to get to her. For only the glimmer of a moment, he could see her eyes fill up and her lip begin to quiver. However, she was not going to let them win that easily, and put the hard exterior back in place.
"Thankyou, Lord Triton, for extending the hand of friendship to me, I am very much grateful." Mirror then smiled at the mage, and felt a lot calmer within herself. "I hope you do not mind me asking, but Yuric seems distrustful of you also, why is that?"

04/04/2001 12:03 AM

"To tell you the truth I dont know. Ever since he got here he has been here he has been giving me that funny look."

Triton took a second before talking again. "There is something about you that I know we can connect on. We have something in common that is unkown to both of us. I see we will work along together really good."

04/04/2001 1:36 AM

"I'm not sure what to do Kalia. I've been so tired lately and this news about a traitor is overwhelming. Should I have one of the trusted scout for who it is or could be?" he asks. "But I am glad you came. Even if it is in this time of troubles. It seems like whenever we meet up something happens. For once I just wish we could have some peice and quiet.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

04/04/2001 10:24 AM

Mirror blushed at the praise of the mage, and smiled a she spoke, "I got that feeling too, and I'm glad to have met you. All this talk from Yuric about traitors has got me on edge though. You don't think the Thorn would refuse me enterance to the order do you?" Already she was becoming more relaxed with Triton, as if she had known him a lot longer than a few short hours. "I so want to join!" she said, "I can feel some evil brewing, and i want to protect the magic that i know it will try and steal from the world, that is all!" She turned away from the mage and looked out of the window once more. "However," she said slightly degectedly, "I get the feeling that if Yuric has his way he'll never let me in, though I know not why!"

chaos_dragon
04/04/2001 1:21 PM

"I have not been here much longer than you. I have a feeling the only reason I wear this silver rob is because I beat Yuric here. To have you with us would be a great honor to me, I just hope Thorn see it the same way. He is a wise person as I have noticed in the time I have been here. Hopefully he will think this through and accept you into our ranks. I would talk to him for you, but I dont think that will work especially with his brother arouind." Triton stood silent a bit then looked down and Mirror.
She is not hidding much from us, Triton thougtht to himself. She is more trying to protect herself from being hurt. What she has to hide is neither dangerious to us or the world. I hope Thorn sees this.
"Come mistress lets take a trip to the library I have been wanting to take a look through the spell books," Triton said as he extended h is arm for Mirror to take.

04/04/2001 1:57 PM

Yuric looked up from the book he was studying as the pair entered the library.

"Greetings Triton and Mirror. I know I have been rather rude as of late. Forgive me. I will not stand in the way of either of you joining the ranks. It is not my job. And, if one truely wants to protect magic, I would be bringing about great harm to the world were I to stop them from doing so. Enjoy your studies." With that, Yuric resmed his reading and let the two on their way.

04/04/2001 3:03 PM

Wynter, lost in her own thoughts, looked up and saw three more people in the Library. She shook her head, as if trying to clear it and spoke. "Why hello! I didn't notice everyone come in. I was just studying here." She took the spell book she was reading and placed it back on the shelf, grabbing the one next to it: Every Spell Having To Do With Fire 2.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

04/04/2001 3:52 PM

"I'll be back," says the Thorn to Kalia. The mage headed to the library, where it seemed everyone was congregating.

He entered quietly, trying not to disturb the others. He went over to where Mirror and Triton were sitting. The Thorn cleared his throat to get their attention. "I have made my decision about you Mirror." The mage waved his hand and Mirror's robe changed to silver. "You will be under Triton's care, as you two seem to have some connection that even I can't miss. Triton can fill you in on all of the benefits and I'll talk to you both later."

With that, the mage leaves and returns back to Kalia. "Well, there's one problem taken care of.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Triton gave Yuric a nodd, but he could not forgive him totally. His mouth spoke one thing but his eyes another.The sound of someone clearing their throug stole Triton attention who turned to face the one who was now behind him. To his suprise was Thorn.
"Thank you Thorn. I just want to make sure you know you can trust me. I have pledged myself to you and I do not back down on it. Mirror she can be trusted as well. I am plesaed that you have gave me the chance to show Mirror into our order. I will not disappoint you.
Congrats Mirror," Triton said the last part with a smile.

Mirror
04/04/2001 11:06 PM

Mirror possitively beamed as she looked down at her silver robe. She giggled to herself and spun around, acting like a child playing dress-ups. She walked over to Thorn and bowed respectfully, "Believe me Master, I will not let you down. Thankyou." She walked back over towards Triton, the huge smile still on her face. Before she spoke to him, however, she turned towards Yuric, who looked up at her. She held his eyes fixed, grabed her robe at the sides as if to show it off and curtsied to him. She could see that although he was smiling at her, his eyes were saying that he still did not trust her. She turned away from him and gave her attention back to Triton.

"Well," she beamed at him, "What do you think?" With that she gave another twirl..

04/04/2001 11:16 PM

Triton looked at Mirror and thought how her eyes matched the rob perfectly.
"Beautiful,"Triton answered. To see that smile on her face warmed his heart.
"Yuric do you still think she will be a traitor to the silver robes?" Triton asked with a smile.
He then turned his attention back to the gleaming Mirror. A wave of his hand and a spell later, Triton held two glases of wine, one he offered to Mirror.
"A toast to the most beautiful silver rob yet."

Mirror
04/04/2001 11:23 PM

"Why, Thankyou, Master Triton," she smiled, taking the wine glass offered her, clinking glasses with him and then taking a sip of the fine liquid. She blushed at his praise and noticed that he was not affraid of looking her in the eyes. That was a rarety for most people, for when they realised they could see themselves reflected in them, they usually avoided them. It showed that altough Triton had his secrets, as do all people, he was basically a honest person. She felt drawn to him, and could not work out the reason for this......
"I hope you do not mind me asking this, but I feel seen as we are going to be together for a lot of the time, I would like to know more about you. Please, will you tell me about yourself?"

Aleximi appears out of nowhere and stands near his cousin, Kalia. He looks her directly in her eyes and sends her... and The_Thorn a telepathic message only mind readers and them, could hear.

"What would you like to know?" Triton asked with a smile. "Lets talk some place a little more comfortable though where we can have a drink and a bite to eat. I will leave the place as well as the spell up to you." Triton extended his arm, which was hidden in his silver, velvet robe. The pure silver strands gleemed in the light and the black runes along the hem was the perfect contrast.
His eyes went to Mirror's eyes. What beauty is in her eyes and yet what a mystery. To read eyes that reflect your thought is impossible. At the same time I have a feeling she doesnt want to anything.

04/05/2001 1:25 PM

Mirror blushed slightly under his gaze and took hold of his hand which had been extended to her. She smiled at him, "I don't think I need to tell you that it is easier on the stomach if you close your eyes!" She uttered a few simple words in the arcane language of magic and they wer whisked away by a simple teleportation spell. They arrived in a small clearing of trees in the grounds outside the tower. The stars and moon were bright, and Mirrors eyes danced when she looked upon them. A wodden table and chairs were waiting for them when they arrived, along with a decanter of the finest elven wine and two glasses.
"Does this setting suit Master Triton?" she asked.Mirror.

04/05/2001 1:57 PM

Triton looked at his companion with a smile across his face. "This is beautiful almost as beautiful as some here." the mage replied.
As they took a seat, Triton poured the wine in the two glass and handed Mirror one of them.
"So Mistress Mirror what would you like to know about me?"

Wynter saw the two mages teleport out of the room and smiled. She sat in the comfortable chair with her legs curled up to her chest, her heavy leather boots on the floor and a silver anklet on her ankle shining through the room. She thought to herself how she had never experience love in anyform but family...for the father she never knew until her tests and for the Kagonesti that was like her sister. She shook her head to clear her thoughts and returned to her studies, still sitting curled up and the thought of love still close to the front of her mind.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

04/05/2001 11:06 PM

Yuric laughed to himself. Not for the look of ecstacy showing abviously on Wynter's face. Not for the new mage so obviously concentrating too hard to send a telepathic message. For the two mages teleporting around as if there were no limit to their magic, as if there were no worries in the heads. He knew better though. Knew the two needed to talk alone for a reason. Knew their were two traitors.

Yuric smiled slightly as he leaned back in his chair. He looked to the quietly day-dreaming elf, then glanced at the still concentrating mage.

"SO," Yuric yelled, breaking the mage's concentration, then lowering his tone. "You do notice the absence of two of you, right brother? Not that they are required to be in your pressence at all times, but two that know each other not, teleporting around together. And being all too quick to discuss themselves to each other, but not yourself or myself."

Yuric let his words linger. He did not know that these two were traitors, but it seemed less than difficult to discern.

04/06/2001 2:58 AM

"Traitors, yeah. So little brother, have you found a place to stay yet? Met anyone? You know, you seem just as eager as they did to avoid my questions," says the Thorn."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

"I would like to know as much about you as you feel able to tell me. Where do you come from, how old are you, do you have any family and the such like, if that is alright with you of course." She gently twirled her index finger around the rim of her wine glass before moving it up to her lips to taste the sweet liquid.

A young red robed mage walked up to the door of the silver tower his staff tapping his way up the stone road to it. Feeling as though being watched by some outside by the door he stopped his head bowed down as his long silver hair hung out from the hood as he leaned on his staff.

"Greetings, I wish to speak to the master of this tower when he may spare a minute to hold me in his audience," the young red robed figure said hopingly not to the wall since becoming blind was not new to him.

"Is your master busy, or is he not?" Tiver Neehigh

Triton took a sip of his drink and smiled as the warm liquid ran down his parched throught. His smile quickly turned to Mirror.
"There is not much to tell. Ever since I was born I had the urge for magic. It is like I am made of it. I want to get stronger in my art and protect it because it is near and dear to me. I want to protect everything that is near and dear to me," Triton moved closer to Mirror to make sure she got his second meaning."

A voice broke in from behind

"Just enter, Thorn probably knows you are here already," Triton responded to the red robed wizard.

Mirror looked into Trtion's dark, welcoming eyes. She instinctively moved closer towards Triton, as if some deeper feeling were propelling her towards him. *What am I doing?!* she thought to herself, *I have only just met this man, and yet I feel much more for him already than I feel I should at this stage in our aquaintances. My heart is beating like Rerox at his forge and I long to know more of him. What is this feeling?* She could not draw away from his gaze, as powerful and intoxicating as it was. Before she knew what she was doing, she bent her head towards him, her lips slightly parted, waiting to be kissed.

Just then, a red robed wizard interrupted, and they drew apart from each other as Triton responded to him. She sat back in her chair, looking down at her wine glass, her cheeks a bright crimson colour.Mirror.

Triton turned back from the red robed magic user, to face Mirror. He could see her blushed face under her robs. His eyes turned to her eyes, the eyes he could not resist. The stars reflected perfectly in them, he thought to himself. The mage not entirely knowing what he was doing, put an arm around Mirror's delicate shoulders and pulled her close. His eyes closed as his head leaned towards her. The thing I have been wanting ever since I laid eyes on her is here, Triton thought to himself.

But I have yet to see any actions that would lead me to believe there even is a traitor," says the Thorn.

A red cloaked elf walked up to the door to the Silver Tower. Elven chain mail rattled under his cloak and his long sword clanked against his chain mail. He saw out of the corner of his eye the two silver robed mages kissing in the forest and he smiled, softening his steps so he wouldn't disturb them. He knocked on the door waiting with another red mage.

"Hi! I'm Justin Swyftsword. Trying to join the silver robes, too?" he spoke quietly, waiting for the Thorn to answer to door."Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

She opened it and jumped at Justin, engulfing him in one of the biggest hugs ever. "Justin, I haven't seen you in so long! How has life been treating you? Come on in, you too, sir! Thorn is in a complicated situation but I'll keep your company. Come on up to the library. It seems everyone is meeting up there, besides Triton and Mirror, as you probably saw."

As she led them up the tower stairs to the library, Justin felt an overwhelming happiness. Wynter was a very beautiful elf, a factor definitely noticed by Justin, and he had known her for a long time.

"I see you have been relaxing here," he said, indicating her feet. "And you have been a finder of treasure!" He saw the silver anklet that adorned her ankle and he saw her smile. They went through a door and found the library. He saw the many silver robed mages and Wynter's leather boots with a spellbook by a desk. "Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

She felt her own hand move to his neck and begin to gently caress the nape. as she let her hand wander, she began to feel his mind locking with hers, felt it caress her's, just as she was caressing his neck.
Suddenly vivid pictures burst into her head. She was being pinned to the ground by a strong human body, unable to move, tears streaming down her face. She struggled, and felt one of the strong, ham-like hands push on her neck, making it oh so difficult to breathe. She pulled awat, from Triton, a look of pure terror on her face. He tried to approach her, ask her what was wrong.
"I'm sorry," she cried, tears streamind uncheacked down her cheeks, "I'm sorry, I can't," she cried running off towards the tower.Mirror.

Triton stood in the groove outside of the silver tower his face reflected his minds thought puzzlement. He did not know weither to let her by herself or to run after her. In frustration he shoved his hood off of his face to reveal his braided hair and light brown skin. His dark eyes moving in all directions. Finally tired of sitting there without Mirror, the silver robbed mage ran into the tower. Upon entrance to the tower he saw two old friends talking, enturpting there hug, the mage blurted out. "Which way did she go?"

By the time the Thorn had made it to the door, noone was there. Instead, Mirror went rushing past him tears in her eyes. Wynter was embracing a new mage, one he hadn't met. Then Triton came bursting in, demanding to know where Mirror went.

"She went that way," said the Thorn, pointing up the stairs. "Who is you friend?" he asks Wynter, thinking that his order had become a giant babysitting organization."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

She flung herself onto the hard matress and buried her head into the pillow, sobbing uncontrolably. She thought she had gotten over it, it had happened years ago! She cried at the memory and she cried at the tgought that she had pushed Triton away. She had wanted to tell him about it, but she wasn't sure if she would understand.

Triton ran through the halls and up the stairs as fast as he legs could run. His robe flutered behind him, like a cape. Ignoring Yuric, thinking he would deal with him later, Triton ran to Mirror's door. He scolded himself silently because he should have known she would head here and a quick spell could have saved him a lot of time. Thinking that knocking would not work because she may not open the door, he tried the door which was open. The mage stuck his head into the door to see Mirror laying on her bed. He could hear her sobs which made his heart contract in pain. He then entered, the only sound was the robe wisping across the floor. Then taking a seat next to Mirror's lying body, he slid his hand through her hair to comfort her.
"I am sorry Mirror," Triton said quietly. "I did not mean to do this I know I should not have moved so fast. If you want I shall leave you alone."

It's not you at all." she sat up and put her arms around him, burying her head into his chest. "It's just that us being together like that made me remember something, something that Iwould rather soon forget, believed I had forgot." She sighed, holding on to him tighter. She wanted to share with him her ordeal, but he would have to be the one to ask her, she could not, dared not, offer the information.Mirror.

Triton looked down at Mirror who was clung to him like a daughter would a father. "Mirror, I will understand if you want to keep this your secret, but please tell me what happened, maybe I can help?" Triton hoped what he said was true, he had a uncanny urge to help, even though he didnt understand it fully.

Mirror
04/10/2001 12:45 PM

Mirror looked up into Tritons deep brown eyes and said "OK, I'll show you. Close your eyes and try to empty your mind of all thought." She gently placed her fingertips on his temples and began to concentrate. Suddenly, images began to form in Tritons head. He saw Mirror, as a younger elf madien, a broard smile on her lips. He watched her as she ambled down a quiet path in a dense forest. Suddenly the image changed. Mirror had been ambushed by three human males, their breath smelling of dwarf spirits. He watched helplessly as they beat her again and agian, and then savagely began to rape her repeatedly. Then the picture changed again, and Mirror was once again on her own in the wood, lying bloodied and bruised on the path, alone, left for dead.
Mirror took her fingers off of Tritons temples and looked at him, fresh tears already in her red rimmed eyes.
"You see," she explained, "You are the first male I have been near since that day, and it just brought it all flooding back. I'm sorry." She said, the tears now flowing freely.Mirror.

Wynter Firecaster
04/10/2001 1:39 PM

Wynter quickly let go of Justin, as did he. She straightened out her robes and fixed herself. "This is Justin Swyftsword. He is a good friend of mine and of my other friend, Autumn Silverbow. He wants to become a silver robed mage. Allthough right now I believe Triton and Mirror would need help more than anyone. Well, maybe they don't," she said, hearing the conversation in Mirror's room as if she was there. She noticed Justin's hand in her's and thought to herself how it happened. She looked to Justin and saw him staring directly at her, but quickly withdrew his gaze. Wynter giggled.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Triton sat quiet for a second. He looked away from Mirror, so she could not see the battle against the rage waging in his head. Once he was once again the master of himself, he turned to face her. He wipped away the tears running down her face, and opened his mouth to speak but nothing came out. There was nothing he could say. He longed to make her forget everything and to make her smile once more, but he could not figure out how. Instead of talking, he held Mirror tight in his arms with a promise to himself that he would hold her until the tears ceased coming.

04/10/2001 6:00 PM

"Do you think he would make a good addition to our order?" asks the Thorn to Wynter. "For if you do, he will be your charge. As for Mirror and Triton, they will work out their problems their own way. And we shouldn't make matters worse," says the mage, loud enough for his brother to hear.

The Thorn went over to stand next to Kalia. "Would you care to go for a quick stroll outside. Maybe things will settle down by the time we return.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

04/10/2001 10:27 PM

Mirror sat there, cruled up in Tritons strong arms. She hid her face in his chest and cried into it. She could feel his hand gently stroke ker hair and was grateful for his company. She didn't want him to leave her tonight. She looked up into his eyes and held him there in her gaze. she slowly inclined her head towards his and let their lips meet in a gentle kiss. As she withdrew from im she smiled slightly.
"Thankyou Triton."Mirror.

04/10/2001 11:24 PM

Triton held on to Mirror tighter with his free hand. His other was in her hand running through her silver hair.
"Shhh," Triton whispered into Mirror's ear. "You have nothing to thank me for. I am sorry to bring such memorys back to you. Relax now Mirror, that will never happen to you again I promise on my magic and the gods who give it to me. Relax now and we will talk later. Today has been hard on you. Do you need anything or are you fine here like we are?"

04/10/2001 11:31 PM

Mirror looked up into Tritons eyes. She smiled at him. "Everything I need is right here." she breathed, her voice husky from the tears that she had shed. She lay back in Tritons arms and closed her eyes. The rhythmic beating of his heart soothed her troubled thoughts and she could feel herself begining to drift off to sleep.Mirror.

Yuric smiled broadly. "To'che, brother. Well met though."

With that, Yuric laughed as a bottle of Elven wine and four wine glasses floated quickly to the Thorn and his present companions. He then pulled another glass from his pouch and poored himself a drink from his flask of Titan's ale.

"A toast. To the glories of love." Yuric lifted his glass and promptly drained it.

04/11/2001 12:15 AM

"To love," says the Thorn, his eyes meeting with Kalia's. The mage took a drink of his wine but didn't finish it all."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Triton held onto Mirror until sleep claimed her for the night. Gently, he laid her to rest in his bed, and pulled a sheet over her. Once he was sure she would be comfortable, he walked out of the room shutting the door softly of course.
The dark skinned mage walked down the hallways with his hood over his head concealing his thoughts from all. He walked until he came to Thorn Kalia, a new mage he didnt know yet and the person he came to see Yuric.
Triton's fist clenched tight, his eyes usually calm blazed in anger.
"Yuric you have gone to far this time. I have taken your insults and your miss trust all night. You stain my good name even though you know nothing of me, but this is too far." Triton threw his hood back off of his head in anger. His eyes staring into Yuric as if they could cut through him. His voice was low but had a deadly edge to it. "You know nothing that is going on between Mirror and myself and your sarcastic comments about it will not be taken any more."

04/11/2001 2:54 PM

Yuric promptly removed yet another fine wine glass from his pouch. He filled it and his own with the Titan ale. He lifted his own glass high as the other floated to Triton.

"Alright, then a toast the unknown. To what the future holds for us." Yuric once again drained his entire glass.

04/11/2001 2:58 PM

Mirror's sleep was troubled. She could not, for some reason drift off into the dream world. Everytime she was almost there she would smell dwarf spirits on a humans breath and be back to where she started. Finally she gave up trying and opened her eyes. She saw that Triton was no longer there and felt a feeling of sorrow, almost desperation enter her heart. Where had he gone? She remembered the soft touch of his hand, the warmth of his body and the strength in his arms as he held her tight. She her heart ache even more because he had now gone off somewhere, and was no longer there to hold her. She scolded herself for being so selfish and decided that he could not have gone far. She went off in search of him, her silver robes rustling gently around her ankles.
She walked until she heared raised voices, one of which she was sure was Triton's. She began to quicken her pace and turned the corner to see Triton confronting Yuric about something that he had said to do with her and Triton. She hung back and decided to listen before letting herself become known to all present.Mirror.

OOC: Hi, I'm Beth's(Autumn) brother Wayne and I'm taking over her Justin Swyftsword character. Just thought you should know.

Justin had to think of the past few minutes, which seemed to have slipped his mind. He didn't want to let go of Wynter and so he held on to a part that wouldn't seem too odd, her hand. Her deep silver eyes seemed to intrance him, as did his sky blue eyes for her. He saw a mage he didn't know come down the stairs and confront another mage he didn't know. He heard a Triton and Yuric. He placed everything together and then stepped forward, knowing if he had to use them his warrior skills were ready. "Masters, please. This is a place of magic. I do understand you are angry for what Yuric said about Mirror and if it was Wynter hear, he would be against that wall at this moment," He stoppe, hearing him spill the secret he had kept ever since he met Wynter. He drew his hood over his head and hid himself there."Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

"Wynter, now you're talking. She's not so 'secretive.' Not so 'oh I can't tell you about myself even though you have reason to doubt my motives.'"

Yuric turned away from Triton and walked over to Justin. "So, you're names Justin, eh? You joining my brother's fair group too? No need to answer, it's really none of my business, but you protect my brother like you protect Wynter, and I'll be happy. Triton's been watching my brother too, listening to his mind and the sort. He's trouble, you watch that one. And Mirror seems to be rather disturbed in the mind." Yuric leaned over and whispered in his ear "Too many Dwarven ales I think." He resumed his banter about the Silver Robes. "Kalia, she's a good person too. You should trust her too. Anyway, boy, I'm fairly new to the tower, so Triton's all about having me killed or the likes. I warned you about him, remember? It's best that you watch us all, I guess, for Wynter's safety and my brothers'. Would you care for some Titan's ale?" Without the slightest wait for an answer, Yuric pulled another glass from his pouch and poored Justin a glass of the Titan's ale. "You seem like the kind of man who can hold this."

It was about that time the others present noticed their glasses all missing. Yuric nodded and said "They come back to me after you finish. Helps me avoid thievery."

Yuric turned around and looked up to Triton yelling "where were we my boy?"

04/12/2001 2:19 AM

Triton sizzled he was so angry at the total disrespect from Yuric. The nerve of him, thought the mage, he knows nothing about me and he dares to judge me.
Triton took a step closer to Yuric looking him straight in his eyes, then swung. His fist flew through the air connecting with Yuric's jaw and sending him flying into his brother.
"You do not know me, or Mirror and I already warned you."
Triton's second hand came out of his hand a ball of bat guano with sulfur in the center. The mages started his spell, a very deadly spell.

Opening the door the young red robe made his way to where everyone was hearing now that something was about to go wrong. Tiver Neehigh

04/12/2001 10:45 AM

Mirror ran forward in between Triton and Yuric. She could not bear to see Triton lower himself as to fight such a low life. "Stop!!!!!" she yelled. Triton stopped in mid spell cast and Yuric looked up at her with an ale fuzzeled look in his eyes. She walked towards Yuric, her eyes hard, uncaring, and yet hurt at the same time.
"You really want to know about me?" she said, her face inches from his. "You really want to know about my life? Well, here you go then!" She grabbed hold of Yurics head and performed the same kind of mind meld as she had with Triton earlier, only this time she made sure he felt all the pain that she had had to endure over the years. He saw her as a child, her mother died when she was young leaving her and her sister to deal with an abusive drunk of a father. He watched as time after time she was beaten. He then witnessed the ridicule that she had to go through growing up, not only because of her natural ability for magic, but for the fact that she was an elf, and an elf with strange eyes at that! He looked on as she cried herself to sleep every night. He then watched her as she grew up, the beating and ravaging she had suffered at the hands of the three drunken humans. he then saw the reason she had come here, searching for friendship and some kind of purpose in her life. He then watched the way he had acted himself towards her, his cruelty and hurtfullness aparant to him now. He felt everything she had felt over the years. He felt the hurt, the pain, the severe loneliness and he began to quietly sob.
Mirror let go of him and stumbled backwards, exhausted, only to be caught by Tritons strong, powerful arms.
"There," she said weakly, "Happy now?"Mirror.

04/13/2001 10:42 AM

Yuric looked up and smiled. "Now, you're doing it. Now you finaly start acting as if there is some sort of life in you. For once you let down your facade of being an almighty wizard and accepted that all of us have weaknesses. For that, I am proud of you. But remember that always. ALWAYS. You are a mortal and you can be hurt. You must quit parading around as if your magic is the ultimate. Once you accept that, and quit thinking you're the best, you can work together in unity and protect the collective of magic rather than your individual magic, which is all tha a fiar number of you have been doing. Work together, and you may be able to reach your goals after all."

Yuric looked at his brother and ruffled his hair playfully, "And I'm sure you thought I was just doing this for some giggles. Ale doesn't affect me, people just seem to be quicker to speak their follies to a drunk."

With that he bowed and turned to leave for the library.

Mirror began to shake. She was drained, she was tired and more than that she had just let her guard down. She had let a total stranger veiw all of her life. She had let that person see things that she hadn't even shared with Triton as of yet. She turned around to face Triton, buried her head in his chest and cried.Mirror.

Triton glared with his anger filled eyes until he disappeared from his sight. Then held Mirror tight against himself. His eyes went up from Mirror to everyone in the room. Triton slowly looked at everyone, then spoke a word of magic and he and Mirror were gone.
The two mages appeared in Triton's room once again.

The_Thorn
04/13/2001 1:53 PM

The Thorn's anger was rising, not at anyone in particular, just at the fact that in his own home things were getting out of control. "Oh man, could things go any more wrong," he said to noone in particular.

"Okay, lets get started so I can talk this walk that I've been looking forward too. First off, Justin, I would enjoy having you be in our order." The mage waved his hand, changing the robes to silver. "You are in Wynter's care and will answer to her. She can fill you in on what I expect of you being part of our order and it's perks if you will."

"As for our new guest," said the Thorn, addressing the blind red robe, "make yourself comfortable and I will speak with you in the morning. Hopefully by then I might have sorted out this mess with my brother and Triton."

Turning to Kalia he said, "Are you ready, because I could sure use a break from all of this.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

The Thorn offered his arm to Kalia and escorted her outside. He took her outside and began to show her different sights, the old abandoned forge that was next to the tower. He also told her about the special race of elves that lived in the surrounding forest that protected his tower. After a while he fell silent, enjoying Kalia's company."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Wynter watched as everyone left and gave a warm smile to Justin. She walked over to him and placed her hands in his hood and ran her fingers through her hair, then removed his hood. She saw the embarrassment in his eyes and she gave him a kisson the forehead. "If someone talked like that about you, they would not only be up against the wall, but a fireball would be burning them in someway!" She took hold of his hand and led him to the top of the tower.

04/13/2001 11:34 PM

Triton took a seat next to Mirror, and gently wipped the tears off of her face.
"Please dont leave me. Without you I could not last here, not with Yuric doing things the way he does. Mirror you are my strength. Showing your emotions is not a weakness. Just relax and everything will be allright. I promise you everything will be alright." Triton held Mirror closer yet, and did not let go until her tears ceased falling.
He hated that his actions resulted in Mirrors. If he would have controled his temper she would not have did what she did. Its to late for that he finally decieded.

04/14/2001 12:27 AM

Mirror felt her tears seace to fall as Triton held her close. She nuzzled into his chest. "I'm so glad you want me to stay, because I don't think I could stand being without you now." She raised her head and lightly kissed im on the lips. She broke away from him and smiled warmly. "I'm begining to feel things for you that I have never felt for anyone else before, and I don't want to loose you." she nuzzled back into his chest and sighed as she listened to the beating of his heart.

She looked up at him again, and saw in his eyes that he meant it, and wasn't just telling her what she wanted to hear. "Could this feeling that I get when I am near you, could this be..........love?" she asked him. Innocence was apparrent in her eyes, and he could tell that she had never felt anything like that before in her life. She blushed again at her stupidity for asking such a question of him, but she needed to know...........Mirror.

Justin bowed to Thorn before he departed. As Wynter drew her hands through his hair, he closed his eyes and enjoyed the feeling. When his hood fell, his eyes were still closed but he faced Wynter and stared into her eyes. They went to the top of the tower, Justin's now silver cloak fluttered in the wind. They stodd of top and Justin grabbed Wynter around the waist and pulled her close. "I've missed you so much.

Triton looked to Mirror, into her eyes. His smile grew as did his heart. "My dear that is not the question you ask me but yourself. What does your soul, your heart say to that question? Do not freit because I too asked that similar question. I asked the gods for someone to share my life with and my prayers have been answered a lot better than I expected." Triton paused before he continued. He still looked directly at Mirror who was holding him tighter and closer yet to him. "This may have come with a cost my love because I may have cost both of us our robes in this tower. Sorry Mirror, but my temper got the best of me. To hear him talk of you in such a mannor was more than I can stand I am sorry for my actions." As Triton neared the ending of his words he looked down and away from Mirror in shame.

04/15/2001 8:12 AM

Mirror reached up and turned his head back towards hers. Her heart, she believed, had known from the moment she had seen him the answer to her question. "Do, not feel that way Triton, for what you did back there was no more than what I did. I was actually secretly pleased when you hit him, and a bit flattered!" she said blushing. "And, as for our places in the tower, that is in the hands of the Gods alone. But none of that matters now. Nothing matters as long as I am here with you. I love you Triton."Mirror.

The Thorn placed his arm around Kalia's shoulder. It was nice and peaceful now that the mage didn't have to concentrate on the others problems. "I'm enjoying this, how about you?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

He waved his hand and soft, slow music was played by the wind. He began to sway back and forth to the music, as did Wynter. She placed her head on his chest and there the two Silvanesti danced atop the Silver Tower, under the moonlight, not having a care in the world but eachother."Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

Triton held tightly never wanting to let go.

"Mirror," Triton a second, the smile slowly vanished from his face. "We should get to sleep soon, I have a feeling tomorrow will be a long and hard day.

After his long ardous hours spend studying his brother's veritable armada of spells, Yuric felt it was time to to a break. He rose from his chair and noticed the absolute silence around him. It sounded as thought he was the only living or unliving creature in the tower. He pulled his black cloak around him and decended the stairs to the base of the tower. Upon opening the door to leave, he realized the sun had set long ago. He simply shrugged to himself and began his wlak into the neighboring forest. He spend many long hours wandering those woods and was bothered never by it's inhabitants, although he could tell they were following him. When the moon began to set, he began his journey back to the tower. He entered near sunrise and went back to his studying in the library. The man left not a single trace of his passing. And to his knowledge, not a single person had been in the library during his absence.

Eventually the Thorn and Kalia made their way back into the tower. "I bid you good evening miss," says the mage "But I must retire for the evening. Good night."

Mirror saw the light extinguish and felt Tritons body close to hers, and as she felt his lips begin to caress hers, she realsied she was no longer scared of him or any man any longer. Being with someone as kind and gentle as Triton had made her realise that all men are not like the ones that had attacked her. She surrendered to him completely.

*NIGHT PASSES...................*

When she awoke with the sun beating down on her back through the window, she was greeted by Triton's face as he slumbered peacefully next to her. She pushed her lips aginst his ever so lightly and just looked at him, drinking in every detail of his face-the beautiful eyes that now were closed, his nose, slightly wider than a white humans, his soft gentle lips that had travelled all over her body the night just gone. She let an index finger gently trace the muscle definition on the top of his arm as she looked at him and basked in the feelings of love that had welled up inside her.Mirror.

The young red robed mage woke early that morning not able to sleep much last night. Sitting up in the bed the mage reached over taking the grey scarf with arcane writing on it and wrapped it over his eyes. Sighing deeply he reached over pulling the robe over his body as he stood up. Then pulling the hood of the robe over his head he reached for his staff and walked to the door. The unseen servent was already there waiting on him to take him to the study.

The unseen servent escourt the blind mage to the study finding him a place to sit. "Sir, would you like me to bring somethig to eat and drink for the morning, Sir?" the unseen servent said.

"Yes please, bring me a glass of hot berry tea, and some bread, cheese and eggs also some fruit."
"Yes Sir, I shall bring that right back for you and the master will be here at any moment this morning to speak with you."
"Thank you," the blind mage said nodding to the what was nothing but air. Tiver Neehigh

Wynter awoke to sunlight shining in her eyes. Only an hour had passed sinced she bid Justin goodnight, and it seemed that 5 minutes ago had she fallen asleep. She got up and placed on her silver robes, barely seen white ruins going around the bottom, sleeves, and the edge of her hood. She left her hood down today and brushed through her light brown hair. Her hair went to the middle of her back and she made sure it didn't grow longer than that. She placed her hair inside her robes so that she could pull her hood over without a hassal. Accomplishing this, she opened the door and headed for the library, seeming to be the place where they all congregated to study and eat. She opened the door and sat down in the chair she had before, vividly expressing her comfort and kicking off her boots at the first moment.

A servant came by and asked her if she wanted anything. "I would like a glass of elven wine, and some fruit please. Thank you, my good man." The servant disappeared out the door to fetch her food. ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Triton awoke to a empty room and a feeling of dispare raced through him. MIrror was not there. A thousand thoughts ran through his mind each one worse than the one before it. Thinking he needed answers but he would rather have Mirror. He threw on his robe, and ran out of the room. He keep going until he saw Mirror.

Mirror turned around and saw Triton running up to her. She had decided to go to her own room and organise it more, put he own stamp on it as it were, before going into the library to join all the others. She watched as Triton approached, a worried and concerned look on his handsom face. She knew that he was worried about what had happened the previous night, worried that she believed that he had taken advantage of her. She smiled broardly whilst walking over to him. She stood close to him, their bodies almost touching. She looked up into his eyes, his image reflected perfectly in the mirrored surface of her own optic orbs and she reached a hand up and gently cupped his cheek, feeling the soft skin on her fingertips.
"Thankyou, My Love, for last night." she said as she tip-toe up so that she could press her lips against his in a soft, gentle, loving kiss.Mirror.

Justin lay in his bed. He hadn't fallen asleep at all, but he had the ability to stay up for the rest of the day. He watched the sunlight slowly filter through his window and the sun rose. He stood up, replacing the armor and cloak he wore the day before with normal leather trousers and tunic, placing his silver cloak over it. He latched his sword to his side and placed his spell components on his belt, opening the door and heading for the library. He walked past Mirror and Triton, smiling at them and giving them a nod of his head. He continued upward and entered the library, his gaze searching the room until it reached Wynter. He strode over to where she sat and sat in the chair beside her, expressing comfort at the moment he sat down. He looked at Wynter and she looked back, he deep silver eyes covering Justin with a light he had never seen before when he looked at himself in those eyes. He took this as a good sign.

"Goodmorning, m'lady." He took her hand and gently brought it to his lips, kissing it."Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

The red robed mage food was brought quickly as the unseen servent set the tray of food on a table next to the mage. The mage nodded as he reached over taking the plate of cheese and eggs with buttered bread and began to eat. Setting the plate to the side the mage reached for his glass of hot tea taking a long drink. He set his glass to the side reaching for a piece of fruit as he scanned the room listening to everything that was happening around him. He just smiled to himself as he took a bite of the fruit.Tiver Neehigh

Seeing Justin sit down and kissing her hand, Wynter smiled and bowed her head. "Goodmorning, m'lord." The servant who brought her food appeared in the room and placed it in front of her. "Thank you, good sir."

He bowed and left, leaving Wynter and Justin to sit there. She picked up a strawberry and ate it, pouring wine for both her and Justin. She moved the plate between the two of them and they ate the great breakfast of fruit.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

"My dear, lets go and get a bite to eat, I suggest in the grotto, it should be beautiful this time of day," Triton said to Mirror as he held her close.

04/22/2001 11:33 PM

Mirror thought about this for a while "OK! I am feeling rather hungry myself actually!" She walked down the corridor, arm in arm with him and began to think.
When she had seen him running up to her looking so scared because she had not been there when he awoke, she couldn't help but feel good about it. After all, he was worried that she hated him-she was flattered that this mattered to him. Yet, now, especially after last night, he seemed a bit cold, a bit withdrawn. She could not understand it.
She pushed those thoughts away and realised that everyone else was meeting in the library for breakfst. She stopped in her tracks.
"Um, Triton, maybe we should go and have breakfast with the others. We are all a group here and I would like to get to know them better. I don't want them to think that I don't like them. What do you think?"Mirror.

The two walked down the hall way and into the library, sitting in seats next to each other. Mirror looked over at Wynter and Justin and smiled a hello at them. She held Wynters eyes and winked, suggesting with movement of her head that she'd done well there picking Justin. The servant enterd the room again, and asked Both Mirror and Triton what they would like for breakfast.
"I'll have a selection of fruit and some Tarbean tea-what would you like Triton?"Mirror.

04/22/2001 11:51 PM

Eventually the Thorn roused from his sleep. He had slept hard, not even dreaming. He took his time waking, laying in bed for several moments just thinking about the events that took place yesterday. His ezpectations were surpassed, but he still had doubts. The mage rose and cleaned up, donning his silver robe.

After a while he made his way out of the room. He was still in time to catch breakfast. Instead of using the unseen servant, he did something he found himself commonly doing in the tower, he fetched his own food from the kitchen. The Thorn pondered this on his trip for food and realized that he did this because it kept him in touch with his mortality and made him appreciate his ability to use magic that much more.

After making some eggs, the silver robe headed upstairs to find his pupils, and more specifically, to speak with the red robe. He located them in the library, which seemed to have become the new place to congregate. He had always prefered the lounge on the back of the main floor, but ths would do. He went over to the new mage and sat down, waiting for the other to speak first."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Justin gave Wynter his most charming smile and ate a few of the fruits on the plate. He saw Mirror and Triton come in and Mirror making some sign to Wynter, but Justin couldn't tell what it was. He continued to eat and stared into Wynter's eyes, hoping to find a glint of sorrow in them. He didn't know why he hoped, but something inside him told him to look for it. It wasn't there. As the sun rose slowly, he sat eating in silence with Wynter and then it hit him. He would have to leave her again, just like before, and sorrow would be echoes in the deep silver vastness. He could never hurt her in anyway, but he knew he must. His cousin and the world called him to battle: sword in one hand; sorcery in the other.

They finished off the wine and the breakfast and started talking of past adventures. When they had stopped for a moment, he looked over to Mirror and Triton and signaled with his head for them to come over and join them. "Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

The red robe mage smiled as Thorn sat down as he took another sip of his tea then placing it on the table in front of him. Being polite he waited for him to finishes with his breakfast before talking to the silver robe. The reb robe then smiled hearing the plate of his eggs being placed on the table.

"Greetings Master Thorn of the Silver Robes, it has been along time since I have seen you, and I must admit you have done well with yourself. I wish we had more time to speak of the past with you and Kalia, but there are more important matters to speak of."

The red robe mage removed his hood showing the features of an elf as he reached back removing the wrap of cloth that covered his eyes. The elf's features were pale, but his images was somewhat ghostly and haunting as a cold chill floated in the area of Thorn and the elf. The elf stood up as he bowed to Thorn then speaking softly. "You may remember me old friend for I am Aldra Windwalker, and I have been sent to reform the Council of Wizards. As I left you and Kalia with the message back at the tower everything must be balanced, and I have been sent to do so."

Aldra opened his eyes as a eerie white light glowed from them because his were forever scarred by the light of the staff that Kalia used against his body while Nilrem was using it. Aldra closed his as images of war filtered into the mind of Thorn, but the war was of magic as mages choose sides against each other destroying one another. The red robes were seen walking away from the battle disappearing into the night never to return. The end of the battle was shown with three figures standing across the battlefield as the magic errupted destroying one another destroying the magic upon Krynn.

"That is all I can show you, but you have seen what is to come," Aldra sat down replacing the wrap of cloth to his eyes. "I see you have many questions friend."Tiver Neehigh

04/24/2001 10:41 AM

The Thorn did have many questions. It had been sometime since he and Kalia had tlaked to Aldra. Suddenly the questions just spilled forth. "Where have you been? Where did you go? How come you didn't tell me last night? What kind of council are you talking about? How can we stop this? And who were those three at the end?""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Kalia was perched atop the tower, her dragon form lightly balanced, crystal claws clutched the parapets of the tower. She lay there, shimmering feathered wings soaking up the morning sun. in her mind another dozen questions ran through her mind. she knew who the red robe was, knew it the moment he walked through the door.

"But, why is he here??" she murmrered softly to herself.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

04/24/2001 2:36 PM

Aldra smiled as he heard Thorn's questions leap from his lips quickly almost at the speed of a gnome talking. " Well, friend the only thing I can tell you about where I have been is that I have did alot of traveling. Where I went is again another thing I can not tell you though you may already know. The reason I didn't tell you last night that I can not disrupt what is to happen I can only watch, and it seemed you were a bit stressed by the things that have already transpired. You must begin a council to discuss what is to become of this war for it is the mages who will decide the outcome of it all." Aldra reached down taking a sip of his tea then setting it back on the table thinking of the next question. "I know of no way to stop the action that have already been set forth into motion. Though you do not know it last night was only the beginning of the war to come friend. Those three figures in the end... trust me those are not the only ones left after the destruction though they are the ones who deaths will destroy magic forever." Aldra took another sip of his tea and then look at his friend as his eyes glowed beneath the cloth he had tied over his eyes.

Sighing deeply seeing his friend deep in thought over what is to come knowing that Thorn would try everything to change it. Aldra saw clearly what was to happen since now the action of others last night shall bring forth the very end of us all. Aldra shook his head thinking wanting to help Thorn, and even though Aldra knew what was to come the war had already begun. "I'm sorry friend for bringing such ill news." Tiver Neehigh

"And so the path is layed out before you brother. 'Tis but a simple decission to make. You've no need of a council, and no one to trust for the formation of one. Be that your fellows are trustworthy, for soon, we march to combat. And it won't be combat that can be prevented, for mages set on domination will march against us soon enough." Yuric stated in a matter-of-fact tone. He rose from his chair finally noticed by the other inhabitants of the room.

Triton quite eating a piece of fruit he stole off of Mirror's plate at the news just brought to him. As everyone else in this table, his mind manufactured questions at a brisk pace. He didnt want to ask the red robe though, everyone else would ask him. Triton would find out in his own way. As soon as he could get away he would use magic that may not be his now that his robe has changed.
Mirror would have to come with him as well. He would need her for the spell and a interesting spell it will be.
"Master Thorn, I am sorry for disturbing you, but I must retire to my room,"
now he bent down and whispered to Mirror. "Come to my room as soon as you can I need to speak to you."
Triton knew Yuric was watching him as well as everyone else in the room, but he didnt care. His thoughts now on his spell and the components necessary.

04/24/2001 10:20 PM

Mirror sat there, trying to digest the information that had just been given to her. She heard Triton's whispered request and decided that she needed to think about things before she went to talk to him. She thought about the war-white robes against black, the reds walking away and leaving us to it. Fair enough, their robes had now changed colour, but she used to belong to the order of white robes, Triton to the order of black. What if, for some reason, they reverted back to their original orders, what if she had to fight against the man that she loved? In her mind she told herself that she would not do it, yet, in her heart, she kew that she must, for the sake of the magic. She scolded herself for being so silly, she didn't know if any of this was going to happen. Still with a worried look on her face, she excused herself from the Thorns presence ans wentup to Triton's room.
"You wanted to talk with me, my love?" she questioned, greeting him with a kiss as she entered. "Ha Ha

"I always have allies. The best allies in fact. Most can use some kind of magic, many have no allegiance to any order, and those that do, will fight to preserve magic. We must contact them. I will need everyones help to seek these people out. I was actually warned about this earlier by another but I ignored him. Now he must be found. Someone must find me the kender, Ghostbuster Lilypad. Another needs to find me Pyranthas. Someone should see if they can locate two of my other pupils, Wynter and Aleximi. We need to get Kalia back in here. And finally I must contact Cai'de. These are trusted allies. There are others we can reach but they would be wildcards and I must think more on them," says the Thorn. "Once we have assembled them here at the tower, we can mobilize.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Aldra saw Mirror and Triton closely as his mind raced at what his new vision was though it was no vision at all, but Aldra did realize who the last three of the mages was left. Aldra smiled knowing that the war was far from now though the time of planning had begun with the actions of last night. Aldra only wished he could tell Thorn of the three figures that stayed to do battle. Aldra looked at Lord Yuric knowing that he saw the same thing though maybe it was not that clear for there was a traitor in the Silver Robes, but that traitor was yet to be born.

Aldra opened a book that was given to him as he read each passage with care soaking up the knowledge making sure that everything was connected correctly. Aldra saw the truth now that there was not one, but three traitors though each one had their loyalty to no one, except one of the silver robes. Placing his book back in his bag by the chair. He tried to act as nothing happened, and everything was just as it was and nothing more.

"The idea is wrong my friends about not having a council, but if that is what you choose Thorn I can not stop your actions. Also the summoning of others may also be a wise choice, but I fear the outcome. As I said I am only hear to watch, and if I can advise on the best course of action." Aldra took another sip of his tea setting the now empty glass on the table. With a wave of his hand the glass was full again. "Now, shall we send for the others," Aldra said as he lifted the glass to his lips taking another sip of his tea. Tiver Neehigh

04/25/2001 1:30 PM

Wynter flew from her her chair and was quickly followed by Justin. She walked to Thorn and spoke in urgent tones, knowing she must leave in an instant to find the people she had in mind, only if Thorn agreed. "Master, I have a request. I know two who would be glad to fight. My silver dragon Kyron, well not really mine but anyway, and Justin's cousin Autumn. Autumn has some magic and Kyron too. I will also search for Aleximi. Since Justin is in my care, I will take him with me. We can find them much faster with Autumn and Kyron. Oh, and one more thing. May I borrow a few spell books from this library? I am going to expand my power as much as I can within the time soon to come."

Wynter Firecaster was used to war. She had fought in the War of the Lance and many minor battles between races. She knew how well people fought and knew the exact ones to find. Justin was at her side waiting for Thorn's answer. With a blink of Wynter's eyes, her pack and pouches were on her. Her staff, having disappeared over night, was nowhere to be found.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Triton hurried to his room. He wanted to hear what has being said but he could find that out from Master Thorn later, now he had to find out what he could.
Upon entering his room, he went straight to his bed and pulled out a small chest. Runes of protection were carved on the chest to keep it away from others especially kenders. Triton spoke a word, and the mage lock was gone. He opened the chest, and gently lifted a crystal ball out of it. The ball was clear as water, but when looking through it the seer can only see the darkest black, the black of evil magic. Triton's old magic. The crystal had a base of a black dragon which was circled around so that the crystal fit snugly in the middle. He sat the crystal gently on the table and went back to the chest and pulled out a small velvet bag. In it the components he would need for the spell.
As he walked back to the table, Mirror entered. He could see she would rather be in library but only came out of love. Triton smiled briefly at this.
"My love I need your help. This is the crystal a dark cleric gave me for the service I did for the dark queen years ago. I dont know if I can still use its magic since I dont follow the path of darkness but I am going to try. I may pass out so I will need your help. If I do Mirror you must break the trance. If you dont my soul maybe lost. I will only processed once you agree with me."

Justin stood beside Wynter as she spoke. She thought of this and placed it into words before Justin flew out of his chair. He was thinking the exact same thing. Though he didn't even know Aleximi, he could find him. Justin had everything he owned on him besides his armor which he could retrieve quickly to leave. He watched Wynter with an aura of authority surrounding her, one that he thought made her look even more beautiful. He looked at her face and her eyes and finally saw it...the echoes and lines of sorrow. She had seen a lot, he thought, and now she will see more. At least i won't have to leave her sooner!"Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

Aldra smiled seeing the the two mages wanting to take action, but Aldra could see the pain that echoed in the mind of Justin. The time would come when he would have to choose between leaving or staying.

"Thorn the order of the Silver Robes has yet been here that long, but I see that when called they are ready to act. Thorn you will have to learn all the rest on your own, and I believe the rest shall come easy."

Aldra took a book from his bag holding it out to Justin. "You will need this when the time comes. Study these spells careful and also be careful for the spells in this book are powerful. When the time comes you know the choice you will have to make Justin. Will you take this?" Aldra held the red leather bound book before Justin. Tiver Neehigh

"Thank you my love. You are the only one I can trust to help me with this." Triton said grimly. He then opend the black velvet bag and poured the contents in his hand. Triton bit his lip in pain as the dimand dust bit into his skin. He practiced the arcane words in his head. Once he was sure he had the spell perfected he chanted them. He spoke the long enchantment slowly the repeated it faster. During the second chant, the crystal started to glow a blinding yellow. Triton repeated the words again this time he poured the dimand dust over the crystal and the bright light vanished. The crystal was calm, but the dragon's eyes showed red and a small tinge of smoke left his nose.
"What do you want trator?" the dragon asked Triton but not out loud just in his mind.
"There is a war brewing between mages show me what you know?"Triton ordered. Even though the dragon was in his mind, he spoke the words outloud to the frieght of Mirror.,
"That infomation is no longer your concern trator.."
"I am your master I control me now tell me what I want to know before you are destroyed," Triton's voice was choked with anger.
"The black mages fight for total control of magic. They fear the white and their grow for power. The reds will refuse to take part in the battle because they are netural in all things and to take sides would disrupt their robes and anger their god. With the new order of mages the black will try to take them out first because they can use any magic they see fit and they will try to battle them first. The black robes fear that the silver and the white shall join forces. That is all I know trator."
"That is good because you will survive another day."
"Not good for you master because you will not escape my relm. The blackness you left shall engulf you and make you our own."
Triton could feel the dragon pull him in. His soul was being pulled painfully out of him to leave a wanting nothing behind.
Triton screamed in pain and tried to fight the dragon but he could not. His magic was drained and next his sould would be.
"Break the Crystal Mir-" Triton quite screaming, he didnt have the strenght left.

Triton slumped tothe ground, lifeless. Mirror rushed over to him and cradled his head in her lap.
"Triton, speak to me my love!" she cried, tears coursing down her cheeks as she gently stroked his braided hair. She felt for the life beat and found it, although it was weak. "Please, say or do something!!!" she wailed as a tear splashed down on to his cheek."Ha Ha

Aldra stood up feeling the power of the dark magic being casted as it sent a cold chill down his spine. Aldra looked to the stairs that lead to the rooms above a deep sigh escaping his lips as he sat down. Everthing told him that he should rush there to help, but his fate was already decided and he could not help that.

"It seems that even when one dawns the robes of a new color one always goes back to the ways he first learned I believe. Is that not right Lord Yuric of the Black Robes?" Aldra looked at him though his eyes only saw that of a vast and empty darkness beside Master Thorn.

Aldra looked at Thorn as he spoke his voice hollow and haunting as the words echoed off his lips. " One shall be born with tears of a land and will cast away the darkness with light, One shall be born into nothing and seeing only the balance of what is to come before, One shall be born into death covered in darkness and then will reborn into evil. They shall come for they are the end." Aldra sat back in his chair not a word other than his quiet breathing that was soon seen as him just sleeping. Tiver Neehigh

As Mirror sat in Triton's room, the broken dragon Orb laying in shards on the floor, cradling Triton in her arms, gently rocking back and forward, the tears flowing in torrents down her cheeks, Aldra's words reached her, and echoed in her mind as he spoke.....


. " One shall be born with tears of a land and will cast away the darkness with light, One shall be born into nothing and seeing only the balance of what is to come before, One shall be born into death covered in darkness and then will reborn into evil. They shall come for they are the end."


She was scared, she wanted answers and she wanted Triton to wake up and tell her everything was going to be alright. She prayed to all the God's of good, of light, of healing. She prayed to them for answers, for help, for strength. Suddenly, without her even realising, bright white light eminated from around her, and for a few seconds, her robes were back to the pristine whit colour they once were. As the light dimmed, she began to feel calmer inside, and noticed that Triton's breathing had become rgular and he no longer looked in pain. She dared but hope....."Triton?............""Ha Ha

"All is not as complicated as it seems." Yuric said. "Trust in the Thorn and he'll lead you. I you can't do this as a group, you can not do it as individuals. This will not be a war of heros and fame. This will be a war of legends, where few will survive and those who do will forever be scarred and glorified."

"History isn't written by losers though. Which means you'll forever be remembered as evil if you lose. If you win, you decided you were right in doing so and forced it upon others. You decide which you prefer morally. I'm sorry brother, but I fear this is not my war. I do not believe in the cause. As with Aldra, I will watch and if I am needed, I will assist you and you alone. Less the reasons for this change, I do not see myself interveining."

Wynter Firecaster
04/26/2001 1:16 PM

Wynter turned to leave but she stood there, slightly confused and also seeing things oddly clear. Everything seemed to swirl around her, only choice words going into her memory. She repeated to herself, "One shall be born with tears of a land and will cast away the darkness with light, One shall be born into nothing and seeing only the balance of what is to come before, One shall be born into death covered in darkness and then will reborn into evil. They shall come for they are the end."

She nodded to Thorn and then slowly turned to walk out the door. She turned once more and looked at the red robe called Aldra. "Master Aldra, you speak in riddles I do not understand. I do not expect I am supposed to understand. I trust in both of your jugdements, Thorn and Aldra, and whatever you need of me, just say the word and I will be there to help. I will tell Kalia that you need to speak to her, Thorn. My the Gods protect you." She turned again and left the library, heading down the stairs to the outside door.ROUS - Rodents Of Unusual Size

Justin stood there and his hand in voluntarily went to the red leather bound book. He took it and bow humbly. "I will study those within my level, and I will progress, sir. Thank you kindly." He placed in the book in a pack concealed by his cloak. He then slowly followed Wynter out the door to start their search for Autumn and Aleximi."Knowledge is a right of all, not a privledge of few."

Triton's woke with a shock. He did not expect to enter this world again, atleast not with his soul. His entire body ached, his mind was weak and he felt darkness coming on. But there was a bright light keeping the darkness away. The light brought him closer and he could feel love it in. The love drew him from the darkness which he was once apart of one of which he enjoyed living. But that darkness wanted him dead. That darkness didnt like those who left them. That darkness would kill him.

Triton could not open his eyes. He could feel Mirror stitting besides him.
"Thank you my love," Triton said weakly. "I need to rest. We have a lot we have to do tomorrow. You should sleep as well I will need your help and your love to help me tomorrow."
Triton passed out again, this time his sleep was not filled with dragons demons and things only the queen could dream up.

Somehow, Mirror managed to put the mage on his bed, undressed him and covered him up. At least he was alright. She thanked her Gods with a heart that sang. She was still worried about him, however, and pulled a chair up next to his bed and sat there, watching him, her hand clasped around his. Soon, she felt exhaustion creep over her, and her head fell down on to the bed as she slumbered. "Ha Ha

Wynter looked at the roof of the tower and saw Kalia heading down into it. "One less problem to worry about."

She heard Justin come up behind her and stood there in the courtyard. She whispered a word that seemed to fly away with the wind. A shimmer of light on metal shone in the mountains aways before them. A roar spilt the air and a silver dragon shot into the air. It flew with great speed toward the tower and circled in the air, preparing to land. The scales were a beautiful silver, the wings like silver see-through robes. She landed, an aura of authority already adorning the dragon's body. She folded down her wings and bowed her head, speaking, "Good morning, master. You called for my services?"

Wynter smiled and, seeing Justin's amazement, walked him to the dragon. "Kyron, Justin. Justin, this is Kyron. Some call her Silver Lightning. I prefer her dragonname. She will take us to the borders of Silvanesti where Autumn is. Then, we will use magic to find Aleximi's whereabouts, then we will fly and get him. We should be back in a fortnight at least. Shall we?" She climbed onto the dragon's back, the saddle already there. She lowered her hand and pulled Justin up with her. "Oh, Kyron, one thing. You don't need to speak so formally. We've known each other for a very long time. Might as well talk how we always do."

Kyron turned her head and replied, "I was trying to impress you friend. You ruined my plan, so now I have to drop him in midflight!" The dragon laughed, more like a roar to Wynter's ears. She knew Kyron's sense of humor, and knew the exact look on Justin's face.

Mirror awoke with a start at the sound of a dragon's roar outside of the tower. She lept up from where she had been keeping vigil by Triton's bedside and looked out of the window. She smiled to herself as she watched the two mages exchange words and climb onto the back of the silver dragon. She noticed that Justin held on a little tighter than was really necessary, and her smile grew broarder. She instinctivly turned to where Triton still rested. She walked over to him and placed her palm gently on his forehead, feeling to see if he had a temerature. He did have a slight one, and she fetched a damp cloth to place on his brow to try and bring the fever down. She sat and held his hand again, talking to him the whole while, not knowing if he could hear or not.
"Triton, please get better soon, I don't think I could survive in this place a moment without you. You are my strength, and in times of need I know that you will always be there by my side. Or at least, i hope you will. All this talk of a war brewing between the different orders is scaring me. Inevitably, a dog always returns to it's master, will the same be said for us? I used to be a white robe, you a black. I could not stand having to fight against you, and i know that if the future of the magic became involved, I would do all I could to protect it. But I don't want to have to fight against you, I don't want to have to do it!!! I pray it will never come to that!!!" She brought his hand up to her lips and kissed the knuckles gently. "I love you, and I want us to be together for the rest of our lives, but our paths are so different, would our relationship ever work? I wish I knew!!! I praise the Gods that they have brought you into my life, yet now that I have you, I don't want to ever let you go." she fell silent, her eyes becoming misty through filling up with tears. She shook herself and decided she had done far to much crying in the pst couple of days, and if she was not careful she would turn into a nervous wreck! She made a decision to remain strong, and the shield she had held around herself when she first arrived was back in place again. She got up to refresh Triton's wash cloth."Ha Ha

Justin stood in amazement at the Silver dragon. It slightly scared him. He didn't like heights, especially scaled heights. When Kyron spoke of throwing him off in midflight, he instictively held on to Wynter's waist tighter and breathed deeply, trying to calm down.

"Why me?!""Man, if I were Sturm's child and I was a knight after he died, I would be strutting around in my Solamnic armor saying 'I'm Sturm's kid, man! I could take that stupid Neraka butt of yours back to the Abyss where it was spawned if you don't shut up!'"

*In a hidden medow within the Darken Wood forest... a simi-heartbroken Aleximi sits practicing some new and more powerful spells to take his mind and body away from the pain. Suddenly his eyes flutter open in shock*

"They want me... I shall wait for their messenger before I act though. I must learn of what all I have missed these past few months."

Kalia sitfened, and turned her head southward. she folded her wings close and tilted her head. A familiar presence itched the back of her mind. a Friend, a close friend.....she straightened a bit, and Roared loudly, a clear clairion call that echoed from all around her.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

The trip was quicker than both Justin and Wynter thought. Wynter thought they would use the conventional method, flying. But Kyron had a whole different plan in mind. She teleported them to the borders of Silvanesti, where an army of elves we hiding in the trees. Kyron sounded a call that made them all jump. Wynter quickly ducked away into the trees and ask the sentinel there where Autumn was. He pointed to a tree father away. "I wish I wasn't in my robes. I could fly through here easier."

She dodged through the trees and ended up in a tree near Autumn. Justin, apparently, had followed and they caught her attention in an instant. "Magic calls, my good friend. We are here to bring you before Thorn. Who is your second in command around here?"

Autumn pointed to a younger Qualinesti elf and Wynter noticed he was right beside her. She spoke with him and the three left back to Kyron.

"That was fast." Kyron let them on her back and thought how she was going to fit four magic-users on her back.

"Worry about that later, Kyron! We have to go to Darken Wood. Yeah, I know you hate it there! But I can feel Aleximi's magic there. Don't give me that look Justin! I don't know how but he's there, trust me!"

Once again, Justin reluctantly got onto the dragon's back and they teleported to the meadow in Darken Wood where Aleximi practiced spells.

"Hello, Aleximi." Autumn greeted him, both a grin of mischief and happiness spreading across her face. Justin leaned over to speak into Autumn's ear.

"This is him??? Well, that's weird. Didn't he hurt Wynter various times over??" Justin saw Autumn nod and a fire burned in his eyes. He knew he shouldn't be getting angry but someone ran a sword through one of his closest friends. He told Triton that if someone hurt Wynter he would be hurting them in some way, but he withheld that promise for the time being.
"Man, if I were Sturm's child and I was a knight after he died, I would be strutting around in my Solamnic armor saying 'I'm Sturm's kid, man! I could take that stupid Neraka butt of yours back to the Abyss where it was spawned if you don't shut up!'"

Triton opened his eyes weakly. The first thing he noticed was Mirror next to him asleep. She held his hand the entire time, which made the mage smile.
"Mirror,"Triton called out in a harsh voice.
She woke with a jump; her eyes looked at him with joy for waking up for being alright.
"Go and get Thorn we need to speak with him,"Triton said before Mirror could speak.

Aldra now sat all alone in the study (I guess) as Thorn and Yuric walked off to chat alone for a moment. Aldra looked around as he moved his hand his glass floating to his hand as he lifted it to his lips taking a sip of the tea. Moving his other hand the book in bag lifted up to his lap opening up at the page he left off at. Aldra hated to wait for anything and needed something to take his mind off all the things that happened today.

Feeling the old warmth of his old black robes Aldra thought of just killing the mother and father of the three children so this war would not take place. His mind raced of old feeling, but as soon as they came he shut them out. Going back to the thoughts to the path he now followed calmed his head. Tiver Neehigh

Mirror looked at Triton, the joy obvious in her face. She put the hard exterior back in place, however, when she heard the tone of his voice. Why he had to be so harsh with her, she didn't know. This was all the thanks she got for saving his life and looking after him. Her face hardened with the hurt that poured out from her. Knowing that Triton sensed what she was thinking, she got up, brushing the imp of sleep from her shoulder as she did so. "I'll go and get him, my love." she said, a faint hint of hurt mixed with the love that was evident. As she walked away, she saw him lower his head to look at his hands, braids obsuring his features from sight. She placed her hands over her stomach protectivly and with a few words of magic transported herself to the library, where Thorn and Yuric stood together in quiet counsel, leaving the old mage to his books and thoughts.
She was half tempted to walk over to him, ask him more about his vision, ask him what her role in all this was. She took a step towards him and then, something stopped her. She turned back on her course and walked over to Thorn.
"Excuse me Masters ," she interupted, eyes to the floor, hands still resting on her stomach, "Triton would like to talk to you Master Thorn, we both would." At the last she raised her eyes to his, letting him see the fear that resided in them. She felt the old mage behind her stop reading and look at her, his eyes seemingly boring a hole right into her soul. "Will you come?" she said to Thorn, banishing the old mage from her thoughts."Ha Ha

Triton tried to sit up to look strong when the master of the tower entered but that was harder than he orginally thought. After much effort he pushed himself up on the wall behind his bed and then Mirror walked in with Thorn behind her. Thorn took a look around the room and at the broken crystal spread across the floor.
"It was a dark orb, a dark cleric gave it to me after some work I did in Neraka. But that is not important now," Triton explained in a weak voice.
"Thorn I need a favor. I need Mirror to come with me to a she will not want to go to. I need your permisson to take her away from your tower that is if she will go with me," he looked to Mirror at the last statement. "I am sorry my love for acting like this but these times are going to be hard and we have to prepare. You plan to fight evil and to truely know what evil is capable you must see what evil itself. And that is what I plan to do. To show you my past life my life of darkness. Together we will ride the shadows until the day the battle starts then we will return."
Triton leaned back. His strenght gone from talking and he awaited their answer. His eyes on Mirror with a gentless that only love can lend.
