Whisper nodded to Telgar. "He's as light as a feather I could carry him anywhere on Krynn before I ever got tried." The wolf said with a slight smile as his eyes searched around them.Tiver Neehigh

"I don't know whether to trust him or not. I do believe he has more information that he is keeping from us. It is odd. We have no clue whether to trust him or not but we follow him like a bunch of hungry dogs looking for food. Well, such is life."

She ducked beneath a branch and saw the light ahead of them signifying the end of the forest. "Well, we are almost there."This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

(ooc: I'm just trying to give Thorn a chance to jump back in cause we kinda forgot about Brom before :(. So if he wants to continue with this quest he can but i have a feeling he doesn't want to, I don't think he has been reading this thread. We'll soon head back and catch up with the others.)

Katyr and Wynter arrived back at the entrance to the forest but couldn't see Brom. "I'll try calling him" said katyr and she called his name loudly several times. When there was no response she shrugged "Maybe we should wait awhile and see if he comes back here" she suggested to Wynter who nodded. The two sat on a nearby rock and enjoyed the sunlight which now streamed through the trees.

OOC: I'm here Katyr. I've been following all the threads I'm in. But I can't always be a main character. Sometimes my talents in the storytelling are better used in a supporting role. And who knows what kind of possibilities open up in the story now.

Brom heard someone calling his name. The gnome looked up from drawings. "Yes. Who is it? I'm right here," he called back. Brom stood and dusted off his trousers. He quickly rolled up his papers and stuffed them in his pack. "Hello, where are you?" he called again."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

Katyr
05/30/2001 6:42 AM

(ooc: Thats what i like about your characters, they aren't always lawful and they aren't too overbearing :) )

Katyr saw Brom come up from behind some bushes carrying his papers as usual, she tapped Wynters arm "there he is!"she said and pointed. As he stuffed the papers into his pack she hurried over to him "Thank the gods you're alright! where have you been?" she helped him dust himself off and realised that she had been really worried about the little guy. "Why didn't you follow us into the forest?"

Wynter_Firecaster
05/30/2001 5:38 PM

(ooc: Thorn is just the man all around.)

Wynter walked over to the gnome and knelt down to look him in the eyes. "You are the greatest of all the gnomes I know. If I could give awards for such things, you would have a million. But I ask the same quest Katyr does. Why didn't you follow us? I think you will have to deal with the affects but I am not sure."

ooc: yeah, autumn and i are gonna be gone until June 10. if you reach the city before then, could you please not get to any treasure until we get back? we both have something up our sleeves that will be pretty kewl.This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

"Well," started Brom, "I stopped for a breather and when I looked up everyone was gone soIjustpulledoutmysketchesandstartedworking. NextthingIknowyouguysarecallingmynameandIfoundyouhere," stated the gnome excitedly. "So where is everyone else?""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

Katyr
05/30/2001 11:14 PM

"We came back to find you, everyone else kept going and we will meet them when we catch up" she looked at the sun and frowned "Speaking of which we had better start moving, if we hurry we can catch up with them in no time." Katyr and Wynter started off then stopped, went back and grabbed broms hands "Lets go" said Katyr.

Telgar
05/31/2001 1:40 AM

Telgar lead Whisper and his passenger into a sun lit glade. A small stream trickled through to vanish amid the undergrowth at the edge of the clearing.

"OK whisper lets see what we can do for our friend here"

Walking over he gently took Tiver from the back of the wolf and laid him down beside the stream.
Taking a small rag from his back he dipped it into the water and started to wipe the kenders head.

"I am no healer as you can tell. Hopefully the other two have found Brom and are heading back this way. Perhaps you would go see if you can find them…………."

Suddenly heat shoot out of Telgar's pack. Opening it up he pulled out the glass tube.
Reading the note inside he dropped his head into his hands and cursed fluently for a couple of minutes.

05/31/2001 10:31 AM

Whisper looked at Telgar as he read the note, "What is it Telgar? Is something wrong?" Whisper continued looking at Telgar his gaze watching his movements closely. Tiver Neehigh

05/31/2001 10:49 AM

Brom took Katyr and Wynter's hands and waddled along. He commented about this and that, not really paying attention to where they were going. "So when we get to the city, we get some treasure right?" he asked, slow enough for the other two to understand him. "Cause I could really use a little of the money to help rebuild my tent and make a couple of adjustments on it.""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

Telgar
06/01/2001 4:08 AM

Smiling ruefully Telgar looked at whisper.

"It would appear that our pursuers have some how move ahead of use. My men encountered them a couple of miles from the city. They engaged the enemy a few hours ago and it would seam that both sides suffered heavy casualties, but the pirates have managed to break through and are getting ready to enter the city.
We had best move quickly. But what to do about Tiver?"

Tiver_Neehigh
06/03/2001 4:59 AM

Whisper looked at Telgar not really that excited about the news. "I'll continue to look after Tiver," Whisper said looking back hearing the rest of the group coming. " If you want me and Tiver will stay behind while you make way to the city to take care of what ever you need to do. Trust me we'll be there in time for the fight." Whisper looked down at his friend Tiver. "He'll be fine with a bit of rest, but right now his isn't going to move until he wants to. So, continue on without us for now we'll catch up." Tiver Neehigh

Katyr
06/03/2001 5:13 PM

(ooc: remember don't make it to the city until Autumn and Wynter come back on the 10th. they have some ideas up their sleeves.)

Katyr, Brom and Wynter had journeyed for about an hour through the forest when they could see the others in the distance. Brom hadn't seemed to be affected by the forests magic like they had and she was glad of this. Katyr called out to Telgar and Autumn to let them know they were coming. she couldn't see Tiver anywhere but she saw Whisper so she knew he wouldn't be far.

Soon the companions were all together again. They greeted each other warmly then sat for awhile so Katyr, Brom and Wynter could rest. Katyr watched over Tiver and saw that he rested peacefully, somehow she knew he would be okay. After awhile Katyr turned to Telgar "Telgar you seem a little troubled has something happened that we should know about?" she asked.

06/10/2001 7:40 AM

ooc:hey, everyone, I'm back! I don't know about Wynter but if you read the apology thing, I say screw that damn fool, i'm playing RPGs until the day i die!

Autumn looked back and forth on their trip through the woods. Things were troubling her. When Telgar announced that the pirates were ahead of us, her worries were confirmed. They were trapped.

"Well, I guess we have a good fight ahead of us," she told herself.Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Wynter_Firecaster
06/11/2001 1:45 PM

"Autumn, is something wrong?" Wynter asked, trying to find out the elves problem.

ooc: I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

"Just wary of what is to come. Strange things are afoot in this forest."

ooc:I'm confused. where is everyone at?Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Tiver_Neehigh
06/12/2001 1:19 PM

Recap of story: So far we found out that the pirates are ahead of us attacking Telgar's posse (heh, posse). We are also still in the forest, and both of you just made it back with Brom I think... When you make it make you see Katyr taking care of a downed Tiver. Whisper is telling Telgar to go on without them, and I think thats it of then Tiver is out cold from something that touched him.

----------But now on with the story---------

The ghostly figure waited in the shadows of this haunting forest. It's damp, cold musty smell creeped all over your bodies as it felt as though something was trying to hold you there forever, even after death. The fire like eyes stared from the shadows his mind screaming for she did not know how these fools was able to resist her fear. A smile then crossed her lips as she looked to the fallen kender as her bone like hands rubbed together. She whispered to herself quitely so no one could hear her. "The Kender will be my pawn, and he will be the one to kill off that fool." She smiled as a haunting laughter leaped from her lips, and echoed with a hollow sound that raised the hair of strongest or largest of the creatures in this forest. The laughter seemed to circle around the party as a mist like figure circled around each person with hands that tried to grab at your very soul. Then the mist floated away into the darkness of the forest the laughter following it slowly.


OOC: I just thought the story needed a jump start again hope it worked. Tiver Neehigh

Wynter_Firecaster
06/12/2001 4:17 PM

ooc: thanks good Tiver!

Wynter's head flew up at the sound of the haunting laughter. Her fists clenched around a staff that wasn't there and she watched as mist hands floated around everyone. She threw up a shield spell and the hand couldn't reach her. The others stared in sheer horror at the hands and she saw Tiver wake. The hands disappeared and she finally found her voice.

"Is everyone alright?"This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

Katyr
06/13/2001 12:05 AM

Katyr gasped for breath "I think so, what the hell was that?!" she saw Tiver was slowly gaining consciousness and went to his side "Tiver's back!" she told the others.

Telgar
06/13/2001 3:26 AM

Ooc sorry I haven't been around for a while. Works been pretty hectic lately so I have only been managing one or two post's here and there.

"Ok people this is beginning to creep me out. What do you all say to getting the hell out of here? The city can't be that far away now"

Telgar moved over to Tiver.

"how are you feeling?"

Elven_Ranger13
06/13/2001 7:12 AM

"I'm all for that!" Autumn looked aheadand saw nothing and looked back and saw nothing. "We better go soon. I feel something is going to happen if we don't."Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Katyr
06/13/2001 11:45 PM

Katyr hurriedly grabs her pack and nods "yes, lets get going before something does happen!"

Wynter_Firecaster
06/14/2001 7:54 PM

Wynter nodded and stood with the group, awaiting the sign from Telgar to leave. This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

Telgar
06/15/2001 5:38 AM

"Ok if we are all ready lets go"

Leaving the glade the group moved deeper into the wood. The feeling of menace continued to follow them as the felt their way through the dense undergrowth.
As they crossed a small stream Telgar looked up and let out a small sigh of relief. Through the break in the canopy he could see a large cliff face, halfway up the face he could make out the remains of a once grand city.
"there she is" he cried pointing


Ooc
sorry but I seam to have run in to a brick wall with this one. If one of you lot would like to take over for a bit it is fine by me.

Elven_Ranger13
06/15/2001 9:39 AM

ooc: I hope you enjoy this one.

The group exited the woods and laid eyes on the old city. Autumn stared in disbelief. Though it had been deserted for many years, lights were still lit in the windows. She looked in fear around her and saw wagons and horses by the gates.

"Looks like we were beaten to it." As she spoke, an arrow whizzed through the air. She moved just in time for it to hit a tree behind her. She looked around and saw the pirates lining the first story of the city. The footmen stood at the gates, awaiting their arrival.

"Well, let's get to work!" She drew her bow and notched an arrow. She picked out one of the archers, the one who shot the arrow at her. She pulled that string back and fired. A scream sounded and then a thud. Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Wynter_Firecaster
06/15/2001 9:56 AM

Wynter gladly stepped forward and spoke a few words in magic. She waved her hand, encompassing the footmen, and a fog arose around them. "Now is our chance to stike the footmen. Anyone who can fight with a bow stay and fight the archers!"This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

Tiver_Neehigh
06/15/2001 10:26 AM

Tiver told everyone that he was fine its was just that he thought he was hit by the ogre chieftain again, but Whisper didn't like the way Tiver looked. Tiver's body was pale as snow, his eyes were almost white looking like something was trying to cover them up, and he acted mostly as if nothing had happened to him. Whisper knew that his smell was different it was something more evil then he had ever felt in a long time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tiver looked at the place they had come in awe, but the shadow figure in the window was what he was really looking at. Orders were shouted loudly as a fight broke out. Tiver shook his head as he setup his bow as a arrow made a thudding sound in the ground next to him. When Tiver looked to see who his attacker was Tiver saw the same shadow like figure reach up, and drag the man to the ground. It looked like the man tried to scream but nothing happened. Tiver pulled an arrow from his quiver as he aimed it near a group of archers. Letting it fly towards them Tiver watched as it exploded into a harmless purple color that outlined the archers and everything else around them.
Whisper headed off into battle leaping into the air taking a few of the footmen down to the ground with him. Whisper rolled over one as his teeth clamped down on his neck. Whisper shook his head violently before he felt the man stop moving. With that done Whisper moved on to the next person.Tiver Neehigh

Katyr
06/15/2001 10:14 PM

Katyr drew her sword and, using the fog to her advantage, snuck up behind one of the footmen. She drew one of her daggers and slit his throat before he could even scream. He slumped to the ground and Katyr snuck off to her next target.

She heard a noise behind her and spun around to face one of the footmen who had drawn his sword and was pointing it at her. *so much for the stealth idea* she thought to herself as she stood to face him in battle. He lunged forward trying to drive his sword through her middle but she moved to her left and swung her sword in an arc that sliced deeply through his side. He fell face forward and quickly bled to death. Katyr could see her companions through the fog fighting their own battles, they were imensely outnumbered "We won't be able to hold them off much longer, we need a plan, we need to regroup!" she screamed to her friends as she drove her sword through the neck of an opponent nearly beheading him.

"Here, I came up with something," piqued Brom. He unrolled a scroll on the ground right in the middle of the melee. "See this right here, this is twenty arrows. We fire them all right here," he said, pointing at a different place. "Then after firing, warriors move in here and here. Then, a wizard casts a fireball here and the warriors should be able to push through here. After that, it's up to someone else, cause I don't know the city."

The gnome scratched his head for a moment. "It looks like if the fireball went here instead of there, we might have access to the main road. Then would could head for that big building there," he stated, pointing to the largest building in the ancient city above them."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

Elven_Ranger13
06/16/2001 8:23 AM

"It just might work, Brom. When we get through this, I'm going to give you half the money of my treasure so you can rebuild your inventions!" She smiled and fired another arrow into the line of archers.
Autumn reached into her pack and pulled out a new quiver. She strapped it over the other and pulled a few arrows out. "This is a quiver blessed by a cleric of Paladine. Watch." She waved her hand and all the arrows were notched on the string and she pulled it back. She picked out 5 targets on the wall, fairly separated. She let go of the string and all the arrows flew towards one of the targets. Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Wynter_Firecaster
06/16/2001 1:56 PM

Wynter smiled to herself. Good ole clerics, she thought. She spoke a few more words of magic and waved her hand again, sending ten fireballs into the oncoming footmen. "Well, Brom, let's get this set up if it's going to work!"
This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

Telgar
06/18/2001 2:48 AM

Telgar fought his way over to the rest of the group. Panting he tried to stem the flow of blood for a gash in his forehead.

"Brom's got his papers out I see " he shouted smiling "that must mean you lot have got a plan. So then where do you want me ?"

Katyr
06/18/2001 5:11 AM

(ooc: The way I look at it is we attacked, got overwhelmed, retreated back to the forest to regroup and plan. The footmen haven't followed or attacked because they're afraid of the dark forest. Is this okay? also Thorn I like Brom's plan and this following post is just a way of letting people know where they'll be and what they'll be doing, also it moves things along so at Broms signal we'll start the attack.okay?)

Katyr tore off a length of bandage and wrapped Telgars head stemming the blood flow. She had studied the scroll and was satisfied with Brom's plan of attack. She began to rally everyone into positions, an old mercenary trait from her days as a General "Okay archers, I guess that means Autumn and Tiver, ready your arrows and wait for Brom's signal." She turned to Tiver "If you have anymore of those magic arrows or exploding cards you may have to use them."

She then addressed Telgar and Whisper "We'll attack when the arrows have reached their target, we have to cut down or at least push back as many footmen as possible. But stay together don't get seperated." She turned back to Autumn and Tiver "At this time you have to provide cover for Wynter as she prepares to cast the fireball, if she targets the area Brom mentioned we should be able to push through and reach the largest tower which would provide the best vantage point for both attack and defence for us. This is where Autumn, Brom and Tiver take up arms and join Telgar Whisper and myself as warriors to push through to the tower." She smiled at Wynter "I've never directed a mage in battle before but I have faith that you'll know what to do here." Katyr looked at all her companions with grim determination "We have to reach that tower.... and this could be our only chance."

Katyr turned around and studied the area ahead of them. When they had retreated back to the opening of the forest the footmen hadn't followed, she didn't know why but she guessed it was their fear fuelled by rumors of what the forest possessed. She felt confident about Brom's plans and the excitement of an upcoming battle pulsed through her body. She had been quite overpowering with her friends in trying to organise the battle plan but she believed that was neccessary. She just hoped she hadn't overstepped her mark.

Telgar
06/18/2001 5:56 AM

Telgar smiled as Katyr took command of the little raiding party.

"well it sounds good to me………." He was cut short as a ragged group of men hobbled out of the trees. Most were wounded to some degree but all were near to exhaustion. Telgar grinned sadly and walked over to a large man in the lead of the group. Clasping hands the two talked animatedly before Telgar walked back to the group with the men in tow.

"let me introduce Aldar my first mate. This sad lot are all that is left of a crew of hundred, they will help and I am sure we can use an extra twenty sword arms."

Ooc just trying to make it all sound a little more realistic. Number wise.

Meanwhile in the city.

The hook paced up and down the outer wall or at least what was left of it. He was so close to capturing them but no once again they slipped out of his grasp .
They must be desperate indeed to attack a well-deafened position, well the next time they won't get away that he promised. And to make matters worse those cursed sailors who had been attacking his men all the way here managed to escape the ambush he had set for them. Not a lot got away but that was not the point none of them should be alive. The thought to himself as he glared out over the forest.
Soon it will be all over and he would have himself a little fun with the females before he killed them.

Elven_Ranger13
06/18/2001 7:57 AM

Autumn smiled and nodded, preparing another 5 arrows for firing. "Well, Brom, whenever you are ready. Tiver, are you set? Wynter, I don't really have to worry about you. You could fight a battle against 50 people and still win with that fireball."It's not the game you play but the how you play it.

Tiver_Neehigh
06/18/2001 10:48 AM

Tiver listened to the plans as he took out a bit of thin string from his many pouches and reached into four pouches before he ever found his cards. Taking the string Tiver tied the cards to the shafts of the arrows. The arrow heads of the arrows glowed a bright yellow color that was almost blinding to look at. "You know I saw something weird in that city guys... it was some kind of shad..." Tiver stopped speaking as if he didn't even start talking in the first place. "Well, I'm ready to go fight when ever everyone else is." Tiver smiled picking up the five arrows in his hand the other one holding his bow.

Whisper was strangely kept away from Tiver almost even growling at him when he came near the wolf, but this wasn't even affecting the little kender one bit. Whisper walked up around the rest of the group as he nudged Telgar's leg, "Be careful Telgar and watch your back because that isn't my Tiver." The mist wolf whispered up to Telgar making sure Tiver couldn't hear.

The ghost like figure sat in a hidden hall way where he could watch Hook closely. The ghastly creature reached beside him pulling the arm of a dead soldier up to his mouth taking a nasty bite. "Him! he wants my magic. No one can have my magic, my magic is mine and no one else's. I'll have that little kender take care of that thieving group, and then I'll feast on their flesh." The figure bacame incorpeal as a wicked laughter echoed through the city as the ghost went floating throughout the city looking for another soldier for this one had grown to cold for its liking.

Tiver Neehigh

Wynter_Firecaster
06/18/2001 1:24 PM

Wynter watched Tiver oddly and felt a strange enigmatic creature within the city. She looked up but couldn't see anything. She felt a magical artifact calling her from somewhere in there also. "Whisper, take care of those fighters. I feel something bad will happen," Wynter spoke, trying to get Whisper to know that she also noticed the strangness of Tiver.

She turned to Autumn who awaited her to answer. "Don't worry, we will make it through to the city if that is as far as we get," she replied, smiling.This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout. I'ma do thing my way, it's my way, my way or the highway.

"Everybody ready?" asked Brom. "Now," shouted the gnome. He awaited his part in the whole scene."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

Elven_Ranger13
06/20/2001 7:43 AM

Autumn spotted her targets and let the fire arrows fly. She notched five more and shot. She then grabbed normal arrows and shot down the row, waiting for Wynter to cast her fireball. An arrow whized by her head and landed on the tree behind her. "Anytime now, Wynter!"It's not the game you play but the how you play it.

Telgar
06/20/2001 8:21 AM

Telgar looked down at whisper.
"He is acting a little strange but unfortunately we will not have the time to work out what is wrong with him, we will soon be given the signal to attack. Look there's the signal"

Drawing his sword Telgar rushed at the defenders who were being peppered with Autumn's arrows.
Looking to his side he saw one of his old crew take an arrow in the chest, with a grunt the sailor tumbled to the floor.

"Stay together lads" he shouted as he crashed into his first opponent. Parrying the attack he used his momentum to knock his opponent to the floor. Leaping over the prone defender as one of the other attackers killed the man on the floor, he engaged the next, running his sword cleanly through his gut.
"push them back" he shouted over the oaths and cry's of pain

where is that fireball he thought to himself not risking a look back to the forest.

Wynter_Firecaster
06/20/2001 9:12 AM

Wynter cursed and reached into her pouches. "Uh, we have a slight problem! I can't make a giant fireball without my staff! AND WE LOST THAT!! So I got another plan!" She spoke a word 5 times and five fireballs shot from her hands. She grabbed more components and shot again, five more in the exact same spot. "That's the best I'm gonna do!!!!"

Autumn tossed her a sword from her pack and Wynter began to run like nothing else into the melee, Autumn, Tiver, and Brom following."..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say."

Tiver_Neehigh
06/20/2001 1:37 PM

Tiver fired the five arrows he made into the large groups as a bright yellow explosion errupted with screams of horror as many men grabbed their eyes and others tried to fight off the draconics that appeared out of nowhere to attack them. Screams where heard all over as the other four cards went into effect after the flare arrows exploded infront of their attackers. Tiver put his bow away as he drew the dragonslaying sword from his back. Sword was larger tha he was, but he was still able to weld it in battle. Charging into the smoke, illusions, and fire Tiver blacked out from everyone as he soon started attacking anyone that was even close to him.

Whisper tried to stay close to Tiver, but lost him in the smoke. Whisper also found that he more problems of his own when he found a few swords swinging at him. Whisper thought to himself that he would have to attack faster and kill even faster.

The ghostly figure watched from the shadows with a newly found soldier in his hands. The hold spell he had the soldier in was working great since the ghost could watch the life from the soldier fade away. "Now, now Tiver attack all who wish to have my magic."Tiver Neehigh

Elven_Ranger13
06/20/2001 3:49 PM

Autumn put up her bow and followed behind everyone, drawing Dragon's Bane as she went. She spoke the word to activate the poison and made sure Brom was in front of her at all times. She cut down many people as they made their way to the east tower. She tripped over a body and a soldier ended up on top of her, trying to kill her with a dagger. She drove her sword through him and got back up. "Where is that bloody gnome!?"

ooc:Hey, I'm going out of town once again and I'll be back monday night. make sure Autumn doesn't get into any trouble.
It's not the game you play but the how you play it.

06/20/2001 11:56 PM

Katyr led a small group of Telgar's men through the battle. Though she couldn't see the others through the smoke and illusions she could still hear them "Keep together! Head for the tower, we're almost there!" she yelled to them, her voice somehow carried clearly through the melee to their ears.

The footmen were falling quickly and many had started to abandon the battle in fear of Tiver's illusions and Wynter's fireballs. Katyr fought with one of Telgars men at her back but she had to keep moving forward when an arrow fired from the barracks pierced his throat. She saw Autumn fall beneath a footman and went to help her but then she saw the glint of Dragon's Bane as it sliced through his middle and knew she was okay.

Katyr kept going and saw Brom standing alone, she reached him and grabbed his hand. Using energy she really didn't have they pushed forward till they reached an alcove where the towers entrance was.
She dived into the alcove dragging Brom with her and lay panting and exhausted in the cover of the alcove walls. Her arm throbbed and was soaked with blood where she had been struck with a soldiers sword, the wound was deep but at least it wasn't her sword arm. She bound the wound and winced in pain when she tightened it.

After a while when she had her breath back she studied the tower door. It was a large heavy oak and iron door bolted with a padlock the size of her fist. she looked closely at the lock and could see a small shiny pin inside the keyhole *damn its trapped!* she thought to herself.

"Stay here!" she told Brom and he nodded. She slowly poked her head around the alcove wall and strained her eyes trying to get a glimpse of her companions. She needed to find Tiver to unlock the door and quickly.

She Thought she saw Whisper and headed towards him. When she reached him he had his jaw locked around a man's throat and with a deft twist of his head he snapped it clean. She got in close to him and they fought back to back "Whisper, the door to the Tower is locked and I'm pretty sure its trapped. We need to find Tiver, he's the only one who can open it!" she yelled to the wolf.

Telgar covered his eyes as the fireballs exploded near by.

"One last push lads" he shouted as he swiped the head off one of his opponents. Forcing their way through a thin line of defenders the small unit entered through the outer wall of the city and headed towards the largest tower.

Turning Telgar ordered his men onwards as he caught sight of Tiver standing over the bodies of the fallen.

"Tiver" he shouted as he ran over "head towards the tower we……." He stopped short as Tiver turned towards him, a dangerous look in his eyes


The hook watched in frustration as the attackers broke through his first line of defence, cursing he took up his weapon and headed towards the fray. Stopping himself from just diving in he took stock of the situation; a grin grew over his face as he watched a group of six men head towards the largest tower.

"So that's the plan is it" he said to himself smiling. Assembling a group of warriors he headed towards the same tower.

Tiver eyes were cold and black as his body was covered in the blood of those who fell under the swings of his sword. His body almost seemed controlled as he slowly stalked over to Telgar. Looking up his black eyes staring almost through Telgar he opened his mouth slowly. "You need me where Telgar?" His voice was cold and raspy, and seemed to slice through the air like an invisible dagger in the hand of an assassin. Tiver glanced over to the door where Brom, and the others were. "Is that where you need me?" Tiver tilted his head a bit his grip on his sword as white as a bleached skull.Tiver Neehigh

06/25/2001 5:32 AM

Taking a step back Telgar glanced over towards the others, who were trying to hold off the footmen.

"yes…….Tiver that's were we all need to be" he replied slowly edging away from the kender. Something was seriously wrong with Tiver and he was not sure he wanted to know what.

"are….are you ok?" he asked fearing the answer

06/25/2001 11:14 AM

With a twisted smile the kender shook his head yes, but clearly sadi no. With the same piercing gaze Tiver smiled again as he turned walking towards where everyone was swiping his sword to whom ever got to close to him as he made his way to the door. Tiver smiled to the others by the door as his blood covered body slowly walked up to the door. Whisper growled at the kender, but held himself back from attacking the Tiver. Tiver only propped his sword up next to the door as his little picks went to work on the door. "Just hold them off a bit longer, and then once this door is open we will find my magic!" Tiver yelled all his attention fixed on the locked door. "We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Autumn drove her sword through one of the footmen and watched cautiously as Tiver unlocked the door. "Katyr, keep an eye on Tiver..." she whispered but stopped as he spoke. He would never say something like that, she thought. As Tiver finished picking the look and was about to open the door, she slammed her body against it. "It's a trap. DO NOT open this door until Wynter can figure out what's behind it."It's not the game you play but the how you play it.

Tiver_Neehigh
06/26/2001 1:22 PM

Tiver turned to Autumn a wicked smile twisting upon his face as his black eyes looked strait through her. "I can tell you excactly whats behind this door," Tiver said with a giggle as his hands gripped onto the lock to pull the door open. "Now Autumn be nice and help me with this," Tiver said glancing back to Autumn as she held the door shut. "Autumn please help me, I'll let you see my magic if you help me find it behind this door." Tiver started to yank on the door harder trying to get it to move. "Autumn help me please. I need your help opening this door." Tiver dropped the handle as his hand moved down to his sword picking it up slowly. "Now Autumn, be nice, and I won't kill you." Tiver face darkened quickly as his sword went swinging to where Autumn was leaning up against the door trying to make her move, or either kill her.

Whisper was to busy as three footmen had surrounded him swining their swords at the wolf to try and hit him. "Brom! knock Tiver out, or something!" Whisper yelled as he finally got the footmen to back off him a bit.

The shadow figure paced behind the door waiting for it to be open, and when it would open it would be free. The freedom it only wished for as the figure walked slowly back to his throne as a group of skeletons awoke picking up rusted weapons, and shields lieing on the floor. "We shall our freedom with the help of the kender, and that foolish thief will see his and his friends lives destoryed by the hand of a Kender!" The shadow figure spoke quietly to some unseen thing in the room. "We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

"Hold on, let me get something." She bent down and an arrow flew past her head and landed in the door. "Well, I'll just not do that." She placed her hands on the door and spoke words silently. The door glowed in a fierce green. "Something magical is behind this door. Open it slowly and we will fight this, whatever it is.""..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can.

Brom's arm swung automatically at Whisper's request. He nailed (almost literally) Tiver in the back of the head, dropping the kender to the ground. "Gee," said the gnome, "I hope I didn't kill him. He talked to me more thenanyoneelse. Well,exceptforKatyrwhenshewaslookingforme. Oh,andtheheadoftheexplosionsguildwhenthefourteenthlevelblew. Butthatreallywasnotmyfault.

06/27/2001 12:30 AM

Katyr tried to fight off the approaching soldiers with Whisper. She realised that they were trapped in the alcove and that there was no way they would survive going back out onto the battlefield. They had only one option and that was to enter the tower. "Wynter open the door quickly! we'll have to take on what ever's behind that door, we don't have much choice!" she yelled behind her.

Katyr quickly glanced behind and saw everyone stand back as Wynter began to open the door. She yelled to her friends "Whisper and I'll hold them off, everyone get through then we'll follow".

06/27/2001 7:58 AM

Autumn stood back from the door and charged into the fray. "You think that you and Whisper can take these on by yourselves!" She sliced her sword on an oncoming footsoldier and foot with Katyr and Whisper.It's not the game you play but the how you play it.

06/27/2001 11:05 AM

Whisper closed his eyes as he chanted a few words as a white light surrounded him. The footmen stepped back a bit as a elf in silver armor appeared in the middle of the circle. "Trust me we can handle these men." Whisper said as he unsheathed his broadsword while taking a nasty hit from a large footman. Though Whisper all of sudden felt the same fear crawling out from behind that door as it was being opened. The fear was like what happened in the forest, but it wasn't filled with illusion though everything seemed to slow down around him. "Wait! There's something evil behind that door don't open it." Whisper yelled but it was to late the air was filled with a horrific laughter followed by a shriek that almosted deafened the ears. Whisper continued to use this time to take out what few oppentants still wanted to fight him.

Tiver took the blow to the back of the head, and was out like a light for a few moments. Though, Brom noticed that Tiver started to move around again as the door was being opened.

The shadow figure began to take on his true form as the door was being opened. His body nolonger a shadow but was covered in darkened robes that seemed to faded away from the years. His hair was as white as a bleached skull that was thick still after so many years. His eyes were hollow, and lighted by a dark fire that seemed to pierce through the very body of darkness. With a smile the figure begin chanting as his voice bagan to rise. The door started to glow a eerie dark blue as the scraping sound could be heard as the door started to open on it's own. The old looking mage smiled as his laughter followed. "I am free of this curse!" "We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

Telgar
06/28/2001 3:02 AM

Telgar found himself cut off from the rest of the group as he stood watching Tiver walk towards the tower.
Charging into the footmen he finally fought his way clear just as the tower door was being opened.
Breathing heavily he glanced around taking in the situation. The first thing he saw was Brom standing over the prone from of Tiver a hammer in his hand. The second was a strange ghost like elf fighting where Whisper was a moment ago and the third was a strange old mage laughing as it stood behind the door. A sense of fear and foreboding accompanied the laugh as the mage took a step forward.
Telgar fought to hold off the fear but many of the footmen were now breaking from the fight as they yielded to the nameless terror they all felt.

This is all my fault, should have never brought them here. He though to himself as he struggled to approach the door. Upon reaching the door he looked aback, most were staring wide-eyed at the apparition; other's were still fighting. Behind the footmen he could make out the large form of 'the hook' rushing to the fight.
He watched as Katyr cut her opponent down and turn to look through the door.
Winking at her and offering a smile he dive through his sword swinging at the mage, behind him the door slammed shut.

Autumn turned from her target to many of the undead that came at them. "Well, this should be fun." She spoke a new word and the sword began to glow and sing a song of death. She stood with her sword hanging down and her hand clenched in a fist.
"Love lift us up where we belong. Where eagles fly on a mountain high.

Tiver laid there a knot slowly rising on the back of his head as body tried to move though Brom had dealt Tiver a blow that he didn't see coming. With that Tiver land there as the color started to return to his body and his eyes turned back to there playful, but now glazed over look.

Xander ran to where the door was knocking many people out of his way. "Telgar wait!" Xander yelled as he saw the man jump past the door and the skeletons pile out. With the skeletons out Xander noticed that they rushed out quickly not looking to the people behind them at the door. Xander tried to get through the skeletons to help Telgar, but for some strange reason the doors shut behind him when he jumped through. Xander only raised his sword as it started to glow his eyes closed as his mouth moved quickly. Then all of a sudden a few of the skeletons around him exploded into a fine dust as he made he way to his friends to help them out.

Telgar
06/29/2001 3:05 AM

Ooc No problem Tiver, but feel free to throw any thing in.

Telgar heard some one calling his name but his mind was made up he could not let this strange mage get outside, for some reason he had a feeling the creatures power was less inside the tower.
The skeletons that had managed to get through the door rushed towards the living still fighting outside. Attacking anyone who was near.

Crouching in the darkness waiting for his eyes to adjust. He could hear the fighting continuing outside.
All of a sudden an eerie laugh echoed through the room. The old torches lining the walls burst into life, cursing Telgar shaded his eyes and looked around.

The mage stood in the middle of the room, more skeletons lined up behind him.

"Foolish mortal. Do you really think you could hold me here? Soon you and your friends will join me."

For once at a loss for words Telgar moved towards the mage, his sword raised.

The mage slowly raised his hand pointing it directly at Telgar's chest.

"Good bye" it gloated as a burst of energy shot from it's outstretched hand.

Pain that was all Telgar could think of pain and a strange felling of flying. Something solid stuck him in the back quickly followed by snapping sounds, then bright light and sounds of fighting.

Crashing to the floor Telgar rolled and came to a stop at Wynter's feet. Smoke rising from his chest
Looking up threw pain filled eyes Telgar smiled.

"That did not go as planned" he rasped before passing out.

Through the shattered door the mage took a step into the sunlight into freedom. With a wild cry he motioned the skeletons forward, charging straight past the treasure hunters into the footmen.

The hook pushed his men away as he struggled to get to the front line of fighting. As he broke through he saw a small army of undead rushing towards him.

06/29/2001 9:37 AM

"DAMN IT! Autumn, We need your healing! I'm going in!" She slowly stepped over Telgar's body and ventured toward the mage. "What are you trying to do? Who are you fighting for, us or them?" She said as she saw the skeletons run straight past her. Their movement was like she was walking with the wind and when she stopped, it was a gust that only blew for her. She removed her hood and stood, her silver eyes defiant toward this mage. "Die, you damn mage."

"Sholi Voliat," she spoke as her hand slowly rose into the air. A ball of holy bolt shot from her hand to the mage's chest, sending the undead against the door.

OOC: Telgar, do something with the mage so that doesn't work. It would just be cooler if it didn't."..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say."

06/29/2001 9:58 PM

Katyr's muscles ached and burned from exhaustion, every so often she looked back over her shoulder towards the door and her friends. She saw Telgar smile at her and she guessed what he was about to do. She mouthed the word No but he just winked at her then threw himself through the door which slammed behind him.

She continued to fight alongside Autumn and Whisper, who was now in the form of a elven warrior. Fortunately more than half of the footmen had abandoned the fight out of the fear of what was behind the door. Unfortunately Hook and his bodyguards had joined the fight and were cutting straight towards the three, not to mention the wave of undead that were floating closer their cold arms outstretched reaching for the companions.

Katyr yelled through the noise of battle and the moans of the dying and undead "We can't keep them off much longer! we have to fall back or do something!"

"Guys, we've passed the test of darken wood, but these footmen haven't and I don't think Hook and his men have. What if we try and lead them into the woods, let the spririts deal with them. It could buy us more time to regroup and go after Telgar and Wynter. What do you think?"

The mage fell backwards hitting the remains of the door, which finally gave up all hope of staying attached to the wall. As the mage stood up the door crashed to the floor.
A large gapping hole had appeared in the mages chest, white light streaked from the cavity racing across his body. Slowly the lights vanished and the hole began to close.

"Fools" he shouted, "now you will all die"

Waving his arms and shouting out strange words of magic he steeped forward.

Katyr continued to fight when she was knocked of balance. Looking down she saw one of the footmen she had previously thought dead begin to stand up.
All across the battle there was screams of fright as the dead began to move.

The hook could not believe it his own men who should be decently dead were attacking the rest of his men. Falling back he made a run for the ruined wall.


Ooc Tiver if you have been released form your 'possession' you can not remember anything of the attack, when you try you only get an image of a large hourglass.

07/02/2001 7:10 AM

Katyr picked herself off the muddy ground and gazed around her in terror.
"They're coming alive again!....the dead....th..they're alive!" she screamed in panic and disbelief.

She watched as the undead started attacking those that were on the same side.

She noticed that they hadn't as yet seen the three companions.

She saw their one chance.

She fought the panic that was clouding her mind and vision and yelled to Autumn and Whisper.

"This could be our only chance to escape, now while Hooks men and our undead enemies are fighting. Follow me, we'll get the others and head into the tower. Maybe we can somehow bar the door or find an escape route inside. Either way we don't have a whole lot of choice."

The two nodded and followed her as she ran towards the alcove and the tower door. They found Brom and Tiver and the group ran into the tower where they found Telgar lying unconcious on the floor and Wynter standing and staring at something at the back of the room. Suddenly a maniacal voice resounded from the back of the room

"Fools, now you will all die!"

07/02/2001 11:10 AM

OOC: Sorry for being gone for so long. I had a family thing I had to go to. Anyways, I am back now and ready to continue.


Whisper ran with the others falling in behind the door where everyone else was. "Quickly everyone come close to me," Whisper said as he slammed his sword into the ground his mouth moving in a silence. Then as the laughter started a white glowing circle formed all around them.

"This will protect us from any undead entering for right now, but I do need time to heal Telgar and Tiver. If you can do this we should be at full strength again." Whisper grabbed Telgar and Tiver sliding them beside him as he knelt in between them both. "Just give me some time, and use any light, fire, or holy magic you have its the only thing that will really harm undead. What ever you do don't leave this circle." With that said Whisper laid his hands on both of Telgar and Tiver's chests as he started pray silently to his god. Then a white covered his hand as it filled Telgar and and Tiver's bodies completely then faded away as almost all of their wounds became healed. Whisper smiled as he saw both of them start to move a bit though they both still looked sore. "Has anyone ever seen what happens to an undead when you try to heal it?" Whisper said with a sly smile as he lifted his sword from the ground it glowing a bright white. "We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

Brom hit Wisper in the back of his head with the hammer while he was leaning over Telgar. He slowly turned and moved towards Katyr, hammer ready to strike again. It was at that moment that everyone realized that Brom's eyes were all black and there was a large bloody tear along the left side of his body. The undead gnome opened his mouth in a silent plea but no sound uttered forth."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Autumn, catching Whisper's idea, smiled and spoke, "It's pretty funny to see an undead heal. Any takers?" Autumn placed her hands near a undead knight trying to get into their circle. She began to speak a few words and her hands glowed with a blue light. The skin and muscle began to replenish itself on the knight and as it slowly came back, the knight turned to dust starting at his feet. Autumn smiled. "By Paladine's nose, I'll be damned!""Love lift us up where we belong. Where eagles fly on a mountain high.

Katyr kicked the hammer from broms hands and sent it flying across the room, she dragged whisper behind her and stood in front of Tiver, Telgar and Whisper. She drew her sword and prepared to lop Brom's head off but only if she really had to.

She called to Wynter and Autmun "Broms undead and trying to kill us, and he's inside the circle. Any suggestions?"

Brom (or what was left of him) continued to advance on the group. He removed a screwdriver intending to use it as a weapon. He opened his mouth again but no words came out. Only a moan."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

07/03/2001 3:48 AM

Ooc sorry people but I have confused myself; I am just going to assume that you are all in the tower now.
Ok just to set the scene and really to recap. The tower you are all in is a watchtower on the outskirts of the city. From your position you can see a stair way at the back of the room. Other than the way you came in that is the only exit.
The mage / Litch ( SP ) is out side the tower having followed Telgar out when he was thrown through the door.
I think that is where we are at, with the exception of the injured parties' etc.


The mage watched in amusement as the small party rushed into the tower. He almost chuckled as they dragged the Gnome in with them. One of their party, the mysterious elf raised a shield to fend of the undead that followed. This did make the mage smile as he probed the power of the shield. It was strong but for one such as he it was only a minor nuisance. Looking around he could see that soon there would be no one left alive out side the tower except for a lone minatour ( sp ) fighting on one of the city walls. Stepping thought the shattered doorway so the party could see him; the mage raised his hands and began chanting. Darkness began pooling around him.

"Slepios." Wynter placed her hand on Brom's head and he collapsed. "He's only sleeping." She watched as the mage began to cast a spell. "Hey, Whisper, can you make this shield like, I don't know, 100 times stronger! Well, I got a plan. It may not work though. But it's worth a shot. Xander, are you done healing. You're power is needed elsewhere. Healing from long distance, just like shotting a fireball. It's a trick someone taught me. Autumn, since you are just a healer(ooc:no offense, man!), you can heal me and I'll take that power and shoot it at the mage. Xander, just speak your prayers and add the word for shoot. It's different in many people's magic. Alright, do we have a plan? Katyr, watch Brom. If he wakes, hit him on the head or something. Don't kill him though.""..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet.

Brom had become undead and the sleep spell had no effect on him. The gnome swung at Wynter with the screwdriver. It stabbed her in the arm and Brom pulled the makeshift weapon free. He lifted his arm, ready to strike again."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

She then began to speak in the spidery tongue of magic from the three shot a ball of mixed light. It hit the mage in the chest and slowly began to heal him. "Keep praying! It won't work unless you keep praying!" She began to speak again and slowly spoke louder as the mage began to die."..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can.

The mage readied himself to realise his spell when he was struck by powerful healing magic.
Raising his hands to his face he watched in awe as the skin on his hands began to flesh out with renewed life; his smile turned to a scream as the new skin began to disintegrate. Turning the mage tried to run he took but one step before his legs vanished in a cloud of dust. With a final scream he fell to the floor the impact shattering the rest of his body. As his dark robes settled on the floor darkness seeped into the cobblestones.
All over the courtyard and in the tower the undead dropped to the floor.


Ooc don't get to confident you might not have seen the last of him…………………….

Brom's body collapsed with the rest of the undead just as he was about to drive the screwdriver into Katyr."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

Autumn fell back slightly and regained her balance. She stood up and looked at the mage disappear. "Well, let's get out of here before another one comes. How are our friends down here," she asked looking at Telgar and Tiver. She looked around for Brom and saw he wasn't anywhere, then remembered the horrible ordeal they just had with him and his screwdriver. "Brom's gone forever, isn't he Wynter?""..Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say."

Xander sat back holding on to his sword looking to Autumn then to Tiver and Telgar who were moving a bit slowly because they were sore. "Yeah, they'll be okay with a few more healing spells... they'll be right as rain when i'm done with them." Xander said with a smile looking over to Telgar clasping his hand on his shoulder. "Wake up, we have defeated the lich, and i'm sure whatever you are looking for is in here some where friend." Xander whispered a few words under his breath as a white light flowed from his hand and into Telgar's body. The white light covered him quickly healing the rest of his wounds and some of his bruises. "Well, that should at least help you get up to search about for this item." Xander look over to Brom who was laying on the ground not moving. Xander reached up rubbing the back of his head where the little Gnome struck him with a hammer. Xander walked over to where his body was infront of Katyr. Kneeling down beside it Xander checked if any life was still within the gnome friend of their's.


OOC: Thorn if you want Brom left dead or something over what ever you have planned for him tell me. Because its sad to say I didn't make Xander have the spell to bring some one back to life, but i'm sure we could find someone to do it. Thats if you want him to come back. I was just asking this only because while checking Brom to see if he's alive or dead. Though, I really think the cheerful gnome is really alive just out of it right now."We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

07/08/2001 4:24 AM

(ooc: Sorry ive been off for awhile but Im back, thanks for looking after Katyr and keeping the story going guys! Oh and sorry I wasn't there to stop Brom from attacking you Wynter!)

Katyr stared down at Brom's lifeless body with shock. Only moments before the gnome had been aiming for her with the screwdriver, now it lay on the floor next to his cold little hand.

She looked around at her friends who were standing unmoving around her, some in shock others in mourning. It was then that she realised the complete silence. The battle was over, at least for now, and they had to take advantage of the time they had.

She looked around and found her sword lying a few feet from her, she picked it up and slid it back into its sheath. The sharp sound of the metal sliding into the sheath broke the silence bringing everyone back to reality.

She turned to Telgar "Well, what do we do now?"

OOC: I think Brom is dead. I enjoyed posting in this thread though. I just felt that I had hit a road block and I wanted to make the storylines more creative. This certainly helped (I think). See you all soon (if yer' lucky)."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

Telgar
07/09/2001 6:51 AM

Telgar stood with a groan. He looked around the ragged group before his eyes settled of the small figure of Brom. Shaking his head sadly he walked over to the door of the tower and looked out.

"We are going to have to enter the city properly. Rumour has it that the city's wealth was hidden in a large chamber underneath the palace so I would suggest that finding the palace would be a good start"


The Hook collapsed against a wall, slowly sliding down to a sitting position. Rubbing his arms he took in his surroundings.
He was in what looked like a main street. Many of the buildings had fallen years ago, the remaining buildings looked as if one good sneeze by the Minotaur would send them tumbling. His men, the eleven that survived huddled in small groups tending to their wounds. Rising above the ruined streets three large spires reached into the sky.

"that's were well go lads" the Hook said pointing.



Ooc see you around Thorn

Tiver_Neehigh
07/09/2001 11:28 AM

Xander looked up at the sky bit of grief in his eyes as Tiver woke up seeing his fast talking friend not moving on the ground. Tiver walked over to Brom his chin shaking as he tried not to cry, but then a smiled formed on his face. "Well, Brom you finally out smarted that damned curse i'll see you when its time for my last adventure." Tiver said this out loud trying to break the silence that had settled within the group. Xander just smiled to the Kender as he stood up sheathing his sword. "I hate to ask this at such a crutical moment, but shouldn't we give him a place of resting? I can only see this proper in doing this for such a great friend." Xander looked towards everyone waiting for an answer. "We are the makers of music, the dreamers of dreams." -Willy Wonka

Autumn stood and turned to Xander, "It seems right to me. He was the greatest gnome I knew." She bowed her head in respect and gave a salute to her friend.You are a genius monkey!

Katyr
07/11/2001 4:31 PM

Katyr nodded silently, still a little shocked over what had just happened. She couldn't help thinking that if she hadn't insisted on going back and finding Brom before, that he would be alive now still lying on the grass scribbling his notes at the entrance to the woods.

She knelt on her knees and bundled up his notes into a neat stack meaning to have them buried with the gnome. But as she looked through the sketches she realised that some of the ideas were incredible and that it would be a crime to bury them far beneath the earth. She placed the notes carefully into her own pack vowing that when she finished this adventure she would journey to Mount Nevermind and present Brom's notes and tell his story.

Xander and Tiver helped to dig a grave, although it was a shallow one from the hard ground, quickly so that the group could carry on with the troubles at hand. Xander took the white cloak covered with traces of blood off his back wrapping the little gnome in it. Xander lowered him into the grave were would be the gnomes final resting place. Xander moved to the head of the grave as his with drew his sword swinging down with its point slamming into the hard ground. Xander knelt down next to his sword one hand on the handle as he pulled a small vial of water from his belt swinging drops on it above the grave as his mouth moved in a silent prayer.

Xander sword glowed brightly as the grave bagan to fill itself up the dirt harding to a grey colored stone. Just as writing appeared on top of the flat top of the stone telling of Brom's deeds and adventures. Xander stood up as his prayers finished he threw what was left of the vial upon the grave as golden arcane cirlce surround the grave. "Now, no evil shall disturb your rest without bringing up their own death." Xander said proudly as he sheathed his sword. Tiver mimicing the same as Xander as the little kender tried to be light hearted in such a dark place and time."If you think these are the sayings of insane mad man, then you've nevered messed with a kender with a cold." - Me

"Rest in Peace, my friend," Autumn said as she threw a handful of dirt over the grave. She stood and looked at her quiver. Damn, 13 arrows, she thought. She picked up her bow and attached it to her back.
"Well, Telgar, lead the way."I don't wanna waste my time becoming another casualty of society. Don't wanna fall in line becoming another victim of your conformity and back down.

Telgar
07/19/2001 2:50 AM

Telgar took one last look at the little grave before turning and walking towards the centre of the city.
He did not know if anyone was following. Frankly he did not care. About them, about the treasure, about anything. Where had it all go wrong? He thought to himself as he kicked a loose stone.
It should have been so easy. Lure the Hook and his crew to a prearrange ambush site and destroy them. That ambush site should have been a good couple of day's march away from the city. Funny how things turn out
He chuckled dryly to himself
Where did the hook get so many men? He should have had only 50 or 60 not a complete bloody army. Now he had lost everything, his crew, his one true friend and first mate, his ship was probably gone now too.
He has probably killed the rest of the group who had travelled with him as well, just like the gnome. Only they don't know that they are already dead. It is only a matter of time. Hopefully he will be the next to die and get away from the guilt.

Katyr
07/22/2001 3:51 AM

Katyr watched Telgar as he walked darkly towards the centre of the city, she sensed what he was feeling and hurried after him.

As she caught up to him she grabbed his arm gently but firmly and pulled him round to face her. He looked at her in surprise, then he looked away frowning. She spoke to him quietly "I know what you are feeling, that all this was for nothing, that you are to blame for what we've gone through, Hey you probably think you've condemmed us all!" he looked at her incredulously as if she had read his mind "Telgar you can't do this, you can't give up now I won't let you. You never forced us to follow you, everything we have done has been from our own decisions and I for one don't regret a thing." she looked back at the rest of her companions who were now like her family "We have come this far, we owe it to ourselves to keep going, we owe it to Brom's memory." she looked back to Telgar and smiled warmly with her hand still resting on his arm.

Autumn ran forward and stood beside Katyr, who over the days had become a sister to her. "I'm not leaving this damn place without something to show for it. If it's not treasure, then it's Hook's head. I'm behind you the whole way, Telgar. If death is our fate, so be it. At least it was a hell of a journey." She smiled and placed her hand on his shoulder.I don't wanna waste my time becoming another casualty of society. Don't wanna fall in line becoming another victim of your conformity and back down.

Ooc sorry I have not been around for a while but work has been busy and I could not get on to the net for any period of time. It might be a while until my next post. Depends on work. I will try and keep this thread alive if you do.


Telgar rubbed his hand over his face and sighed.

"So be it, we will head towards the palace. It is said that there is four large chambers built under the palace. Sounds likely that the treasure will be there"

He looked back at the grave before addressing the whole group.

"Come if you want to, if you don't then I can't blame you"

Turning he began walking down a rubble strewn street.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The hook and his men custiously walked down a dark stair well. Some one had lit a torch and left it burning in its holder.
Taking it the hook grunted, he should be suspicious but he was confident he could deal with what ever they found.
Reaching the bottom of the stairs the small party came across a door covered in flaky gold leaf.

Wynter hurried forward, lost in her own studies. "Telgar, if you don't mind, let me go first. I can sense magic and hear footsteps."I don't wanna waste my time becoming another casualty of society. Don't wanna fall in line becoming another victim of your conformity and back down.
