OOC: I hope that I can get more people into this thread than my last one that I tried to start....ok...lets see......


The Elf turned her head, her Lavender colored eyes glowed briefly in the firelight, as her Platinum-Blonde hair fell back to shadow those eyes back to a deep violet.

She Hugged her leather clad legs, chilled through her light-weight green tunic. Her name was Kista, Kista Starblade. Born of the Silvanesti elves, raised by the Wild Kagonesti, She held the best of both. She was tall and slender, her aristocratic looks would pass as a courtier, but her silence, and stelth, made her an accomplished hunter. She even had a talent for the Wilder magics.

Kista glared at the Dark Knight that towered over her. His dull, black armor seemed to absorb the firelight before him. the hated black armor covered his face, blocking all hope of Identifying her Captor.

The Knights' Dragon, a large Blue, lay curled up behind them, Its bright yellow eyes watched Kista intently. She sensed the Knights gaze and returned it in prideful silence. He chuckled and gestured to the Blood Bay battle mare that stood not even ten paces away from Kista.

"Why don't you try to run?" The knight asked pointedly. Kista gave a derisive snort and fixed her eyes on the Blue.

"I dont think THAT-" she replied pointing to the Dragon- "would allow me get very far..."your village just called, their Idiot is missing

Ulthan sat completely still wedged between a natural V made by the branches of the tree.
Making sure he was up wind of the dragon the Kagonesti looked down at the Dark knight. His arrow was nocked and aimed at the back of the dark knight's neck.
What his arrows would accomplishes against an armoured knight and a dragon he was unsure but still he sat there his bow drawn back ready to loose.

Two barnches above Ulthan stood Mirror. The Kagonesti balancing lightly on the branch, arms in pouches, words of magic on the tip of her tounge. Her long silver hair billowed around her as she prepared to let loose her power.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Mylar sat under the tree with two people above him. His back leaned against the large trunk relaxed. His sword still in his sheath. He was a sellsword and until he saw some steel he would not battle. The only reason why he was with the other two was because they intrested him. Mylar's eyes started at the blue dragon. The dragonfear bit into him, but he would not let anyone else know that. He only wanted everyone to know that he was dangerous and that is all they would know if it killed him.

Kethryveris, the large Blue Dragon glared down at the Elf in front of her partner. A cruel and deadly smile played at the dragons mouth, while little sparks of lighning played amung the wickedly sharp teeth.

Keth, glanced at Galen and sighed at the pleasure his visage brought her...Truley this was a human with the heart of a dragon.

"I advise you to rid our little 'guest' of her pendant there...but careful not to touch the stone...or you will recieve a nasty surprize." Keth hissed, stretching her wings, easing some of the ache from the damp weather out of them.

Kista started at the Dragons' words, and instinctivly clutched at the silver neclace and pendant that hung around her neck. of all things...this was not something to be let out of her sight. If this pendant where to fall in the wrong hands.....

"No!!" Kista cried and tried to back away from the Knight, backing herself up against a tree, trapping herself.Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

Ulthan watched as the knight reached for what from his vantage point looked like Kista's throat.
He was about to shoot the knight when he hesitated. If he killed the knight the dragon would undoubtedly kill the Elf, if he shot the dragon his arrow would just bounce off.
Just then Kista screamed again. He could now see the knight was trying to take a pendant from the elf's neck. Both were pulling on the thin chain, his mind made up he fired.
The arrow flew straight catching the knight on his armour hand the keen point piercing his flesh. With a cry of pain the knight jerked his hand back, the sudden movement causing the chain to snap. The glittering pendant flew from Kista's neck to land on a bed of dead leaves a few feet away.

"You are surrounded Knight. Call off your dragon and you may well live" Ulthan shouted hoping the Knight would fall for it.

"No!" Kista screamed as she felt the silver chain snap. She watched as the triangler silver pendant and the glittering inhabitant embedded in the center sailed a few feet away from her.

Oblivious to the events around her, she scrambled to find it.

Kethryveris, the Blue, stared around her. keen Dragon sight, swept over each of them in turn. The dragon turned her amber colored gaze back to her Knight. Keth, growled softly and Galen stood up a bit straighter.

Kista sifted through the dead leaves, finally finding the pendant. with a cry of releif she clutched it tightly. then she stared up, to see another elf.... Quickly she looked away, for fear of revealing him. She turned saw that both the Knight and the Dragon where no longer paying any attention to her...so she Tried to make a break for it.Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

Aldra made his way though the forest as he looked up at the blue dragon feeling the dragon fear sweep over him. The runes on the cloth that covered his eyes glowed brightly as Aldra smiled knowing this was where he was supposed to be. Aldra whispered a few words hoping the dragon would feel the magical heat through it's body almost turn cold as ice.

"Kethryveris the Blue Dragon I believe, that is your name am I not right?" hoping this would give everyone else a little more time to plan things out. "I remember the fear I gave your mother when I told her that I wanting nothing more than to make a pretty pouch out of you when you hatched. Oh, how lucky you were when I decided to use your sister instead. You should of heard her screamed." Truely Aldra didn't see that much of the dragons past, but he did see its name. Aldra only hoped the information he was putting forth was true since his magic could stand the dragon's breath. Aldra pulled a pouch from his side holding it up so the dragon could see it. Aldra only wanted them to escape it only amused him more to fight with a dragon. Though Aldra was even more happy to see the dragons head whip around to look straight at the blind mages face.Tiver Neehigh

Mirror
05/09/2001 1:22 PM

Mirror decended from her vantage point in the boughs of the tree. She sent a short telepathic message to Aldra, thanking him and telling him to be careful, for she knew what he was trying to do. The kagonesti landed softly in front of Kista and Ullen (was that his name?), speaking to them softly and quickly. She noticed the shape of the warrior hidden in the trees, and acted quickly in order to try not to arouse his attention."We must depart now, we are not safe here. Aldra is buying us some time, but we must leave now!" with that she grabbed the hands of the other two and told them to close their eyes, it was easier on the stomach. She muttered the words of magic and when they colud see staright again, they found themselves at a small house built beneath a huge vallenwood, it's boughs and leaves obscuring most of it from view. As they reached closer, they could see that the house was not built beneth, but actually inside the huge tree.
Mirror walked up to the door, took a key from out of her pocket and opened up the front of her abode. "Please, come in, make yourselves at home, and you, cousin Kista," she said, turning to her fellow Kagonesti, "You can tell me all about that necklace you hold..." You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

(((OOC: I haven't figured this all out so I may need some help from all of you.....)))

Kista staggered forward, and sat down wearily. Her silver-blonde hair covered her face, and she made no move to brush it out of her eyes. she sat there silent and still, all but the slight shaking of her shoulders. Her hand was clenched tightly around the silver pendant. slowly she opened her hand, and the pendant an the gem within, was clearly visible to all within the room.

The pendant was a rounded triangle. the stone in the center was trianglar in shape too, and sparkled with a life of its own.

But it was not the shape or the sparkle of the gem that made everyone gasp in awe. the crystal was of a pale lavender, that slowly shifted to indigo, to red, to yellow, to blue and back again.

Kista looked up slowly, tears in her lavender eyes, as she stared at each in turn. "this," she said slowly, pain evident in her voice. "this is all that I have left of my Silvanesti mother...what it is, I am not sure, all I know is the power that lies within it. no matter what, I cannot allow this to be placed in any hands but my own........"

05/09/2001 11:11 PM

Mirror sat down, placing glasses of elven wine before both of her guests. She stared at the pendant in awe as it changed, the colours reflected in her mirrored eyes. "It is only right then, that you should not let it be taken by anyone else, for the sentimental reason alone. But it obviously holds some great power, otherwise the dragon and his rider would not be interested in it. The obviously know more about it that you do. The problem is, how do we find out it's power?" she mused, half to herself as she went to stack wood on the fire.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Kista remained silent for a moment, tears showing in her lavender eyes. finally she took a deep breath and told what she knew...

"My parents where killed when I was little, aound five or six....all That I know...is that they where attacked...buy the Knights of Takisis..." she paused for a moment struggleing to gain control of her voice.

"My mother was an acomplished white robe magi, my father was a cleric for E'li. when the attack began my mother cast a sleep spell on me to keep me from being found, and all that I know is that she slipped this pendant around my neck. the next day, I awoke, alone...or so I thought, I was only five, and was terrified. eventually, I stumbled upon a scout for the Kagonesti...the Pathfinder to be exact...he took me in and raised me...but now..these knights, have been attacking villiages, giving a description of me, demanding that I be found. I am not sure of the true power of this pendant, what little I know, is enough to make anyone want it"

She stopped and took anther deep breath..."I have reason to believe that this pendant holds the soul of my mother....when I wear it, since am not a mage, I am protected from all but the most deadly of spells, and it will heal me of all but the most minor, and the most greivious of wounds. that is all that I know at this point...but it must be something much much more for those two to want it so badly."Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

*Meanwhile, back at the ranch.........*

Keth and his dragon (I'll be damned if I can't remember it!) Stare in angered awe as Kista, Mirror, and Ullen (sp?) diseappear in a small flash of light. The dragon is pissed, trying to find the little !@#$%& (kender?) and the knight leaves disseapointed, trying to mount his dragon. Over the horizon, like a bronze bolt of lightning, comes a large Bronze dragon with two riders. The blue turns, angry and aggressive, as the Bronze ducks and flys low, stirring up a small whirlwind of grass and dirt. Within the small maelstrom, a cloaked figure jumps off the back of the dragon.

"Thanks for the cover Duncan! Say hi to your brother when you see him!"

The cloaked man runs for the cover of the trees. The Bronze swoops up and the two dragons circle each other anxiously, waiting for the command to attack.

"No.....I'm too late.....I missed her! Damn it. Damn it damn it DAMN IT!"

The cloaked man hides deeper in the trees, eyeing the dragons in the sky.

Aldra looked up at the blue dragon with a big grin as his smile quickly turned to a frown seeing the knight approach him with his sword draw. Aldra waved his hand uttering a simple command as the knight fell to the ground prone.

"Well, since that is taken care of..." looking back up to see the anger in the dragon's blood boiling to the point of explosion. "I want to know what it is about the girl you want so bad, and to be honest the elf seemed farely plain to me."

Aldra shrugged as he walked up closer to the dragon. "Well, are you going to tell me or do I have to force it out of you dragon?" The cloth beneath Aldra's eyes flaring up into a deadly glow. Both the dragon and the mage were mere seconds from a fight as they both eyed each other measuring each others strenghts. Tiver Neehigh

Mirror
05/10/2001 2:47 PM

Mirror walked over to Kista and held her protectivly, letting her cry on to her shoulder. She rememberd what kista had been like when the Pathfinder first brought her to Mirror's village. She had been so quiet, so withdrawn. She could not believe that she had turned into such a confident elf maiden. She lifted the younger elf's face from her shoulder and looked into her lavender eyes. "There is nothing we can do tonight. Get some rest, you can have my room-I'll sleep in here. We will try to sort everything out tomorrow."You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

OOC: the Dragon's name is Kethryveris, Keth for short, the black knights' name is Galen...maybe....I am hoping for someone to step in and help me on his character......


Kethryveris stared at the elf mage anger vivid in her eyes, and haterd boiling her blood. Lightning crackled amung the Blue's teeth, murderous rage held in check for fear of her rider, her partner.....

"What we want is of no concern of yours...as for that pretty little elf, her days are numbered...make no mistake of that..." the Dragon Hissed, as the air around Kethryveris and her rider shimmered and wavered like the air above hot stone. The Dragon laughed cruely as they faded from sight.

The now invisible dragon and rider flew off into the twilight.Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

Aldra smiled to himself seeing the faint glow of magic all around him as he his hide his smile beneath the hood of his robes. "All but cheap tricks Keth as a young child I was able to do things like as you do. Dragons are merely the big oops of the Gods none of you have any real magic." Aldra yelled into the night air not quite satisfied about the turn of events. Aldra only wanted to see the dragons breath not really knowing if the spells he had with him would stand against it. Aldra merely shrugged as he walked away trying to decide which way Mirror actually went.

Aldra looked up at the stars smiling to himself as he choose his direction walking in a different direction then where Mirror and the others were. Tiver Neehigh

Kista nodded wearily, and allowed herself to be led by Mirror. She sighed as she examined the silver chain, and shook her head as she noticed that a good portion of the chain was missing, it had probably broken off when the chain snapped. she could hear Mirror and the others murmering outside of the room, but she payed them no mind.

she looked up to notice a polished metal mirror in the corner of the room, cautiously, Kista walked over to it. she examined herself carefuly, her eyes where a clear, lavender blue...her features where fine, and evenly placed, beautiful to the causual onlooker... though one might say that her eyes where too big and that her nose was too straight and narrow. but in her eyes, she saw only someone who was unsure of her true abilities, although, she held herself confidently enough, her heart was constantly doubting herself.

Kista brushed the silver and blonde hair out of her face, and made a halfhearted attempt to comb it. finally deciding that it was hopeless at the moment, she turned and lay down on the bed, clutching the amulet tightly, confident in its' strength, and the fact that all of her wounds would be healed by morning light.Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

Ulthan listened politely as Kista told her story. Occasionally rubbing the oakleaf tattoo that covered his right eye. Remaining silent as Kista left the room.

Turning to Mirror his tattooed face a picture of concentration.

"I know nothing of magic but I will help. I will sleep out side" with that he left the room.

The bronze dragon lands again, and the cloaked figure runs for it, mounting it's back.

"Duncan, we have to look for her. Let's head west."

The dragon and it's two riders take off in a blast of hot air.

Mirror stopped him in his tracks, one hand firmly on his fore arm, the other gently tracing the dove tatto on her left cheek. She smiled at him and said, "I would not hear of such a thing. You are my guest, and I don't let my guests go to sleep outside the front door, especially not on a clod night such as this one. Let me make up a bed over here by the fire for you."You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Kista tossed and turned unable to sleep, her minor wounds had already been healed, and the aches had faded. She kept her eyes closed, in hopes that sleep would come, when suddenly a flash of bronze interrupted her hopes of sleep.

She opened her eyes.....nothing there. she shrugged, and tried to go back to sleep. "OUCH!" she yelped, as the pendant in her hand grew hot to the touch. the stone in the center was changing rapidly through the cooler colors, from green to blue, to purple.... "Mom?" Kista whispered softly... She got the sudden impression that someone was looking for her, somone who truely wanted to help. she sat up and looked outside.Your Idiot just called, he said his Villiage was missing!

From outside a knock could be heard on Mirror's door along with the cursing of the weather and forest lands. Aldra stood outside the door wondering how he, even by taking the wrong way, ended up back here where everyone was. Aldra smiled hearing peaple talk as he decide just to walk through the door.

Aldra whispered a few words as he became a ghostly image that slide right through the door. Aldra only smiled wondering what everyone would do when they saw him. Tiver Neehigh

Kalan snorted. He was a merc, and working for the dark knights was not paying as well as it used to. The minotaur scratched the fur on his chin. He was supposed to go with several other dark knights to babysit some elf. The minotaur was not overly fond of elves, but in the past he had met a couple who were okay. Just before Kalan and the party were to leave blue with an injured rider landed in their camp. The riders hand had been injured. The knight ducked into the command tent. Several of the knights behind Kalan began to whisper that the knight they were supposed to rally with was the one who just landed. The minotaur waited like the rest of the crew, waiting to see what their new orders would be."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

Mylar took a seat in the corner watching everyone else with delight. he liked to see them worrying trying to fight for their lives, but he would help them. They seemed like a good adventure to them, but the price wasnt right for him. Free he said he would never fight for free, but at the same time he never went against a dragon, and the chance to will arise again he knew it. When it did he would be ready. He looked down at his sword as if to see if he was truely ready. He smiled to himself then noticed something was coming through the door with it closed. Mnn he said to himself then thought maybe I am too tired and need some sleep. He closed his eyes, but something told him sleep was not what he needed. He pulled his sword close and keep a eye slightly adjar ready to battle. Well maybe he hasnt decieded yet.

Kista got up and sat down next to the window...there was something about that flash of bronze color that would not let her sleep, and her pendant though no longer scalding to the touch, was still warm and the colors where still shifting irradically.

She lookded out, and stared at Krynn's two visible moons, Solinari, and Lunitari, the two moons shed an erie silvery-puple light that bathed everything in odd looking shadows.Books that we will never see:

Kista noticed the Flash of moonlight against metalic bronze....her lavender eyes widened. feeling the heat of her pendant, she didn't bother to look down at it...instead, she pushed the window open and crawled throuh...

Landing lightly on the other side, she paused long enough to whisper "sorry Mirror, thank you for your help...but if you follow me now, I will not have your lives on my soul..." She paused and called out to her "companion" A large GrassCat got to its feet, a few feet away...

"Hello my friend...will you look after Mirror and my friends, if they insist on following me, lead them my way...."

the Large Cat nodded once and walked around to the front of the tree.

Kista sighed and pulled the hood up on her cloak, and started down the trail to the highest vantage point around.Books that we will never see:

The knight pats his dragons head and whispers to it gently. The dragon lies down and begins to rest.

"Hey Ambral, we're gonna camp for a little while. Do me a favor and go get some wood for a fire. I'll go get us a rabbit or something for diner."

The knight drops his bag and drops his gear. He straps on a hunting knife and takes a longbow.

"I'll be back in a n hour or two. Have the camp set up by then."

The knight walks away into the forest, the opposite direction of Ambral and Kista. When the knight is out of sight, Ambral drops his gear and changes out of his dark grey traveling cloak and pulls out a light red cloak embroidered with brown.

"I swear Duncan...If I weren't best friends with your Brother......I'd send you up in a cloud of smoke you arrogant bastard......"

Ambral dons the cloak and begins into the forest towards Kista. He follows the path that seems to be used the most, (which just happens to lead right under the tree that Kista is in...;) ) mumbling to hiself.

"Damn it you know how important this is to me but nooooo.....you gotta rest the dragon, the most powerful creature on the planet......dick. I'm never gonna find her now, especially with nothing to track her with."

Mirror leads Ullen over towards the fire where some cusions have been arranged and bids him to sit down, smiling back at the half elf. She felt some kind of bond with him, though she knew not why. She was about to ask Aldra about the pendant when there came a soft mewing sound and a slight skratching coming from outside the door. She went and opened to find a grass cat sitting there, looking up at her forlornly. She reached down and petted it, stroking it's soft fur as it begins to purr loudly.
"I wonder where you came from? You sure are pretty aren't you!!! You've got the most beautiful........." she stopped dead in mid sentance, staring at the cat. She then ran into the room she had given Kista and stared around the empty place, noticing the curtain billowing in the open window.
"She's gone!!!!!" she cried running into the main room. The cat stred at them knowingly with it's beautiful lavender eyes........You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Kista watched the man walk towards her, picking up pieced of wood...she watched him closely, and listened to him mutter under his breath:


"Damn it you know how important this is to me but nooooo.....you gotta rest the dragon, the most powerful creature on the planet......dick. I'm never gonna find her now, especially with nothing to track her with."


She narrowed her eyes a the man, though she needed help, her heart was wary....Suddenly, a Piece of back came loose under her feet, and she lost her balance. Falling, she fliped, and managed to land on her feet...less than five paces from the man. She stared up from her kneeling position, alowing herself the moment to study the mans face, then she turned, she was afraid that she had made a mistake......

The pendant in her hand was suddenly red hot, and she yelped in surprize and dropped it. The gem landed face up, blazingly bright, and stuck in a royal blue color....the color of peace and healing...

Kista stoped for a moment and looked back at the man, fear still evident, but a willingness to stay...gingerly she picked up the pendant, and dropped it into a leather pouch that hung at her waist.

BACK AT THE "TREE HOUSE"

The grass cat stared at the sudden Hub-Bub in the house...The cat,(Some what built like a Cheetah, with the spots, and a few strips on the face and the legs. for some reason, this particular cat is mind bonded with Kista, they know each others thoughts, and know where each other is...) Warrl (THats his name) stood, stretched his long legs, and turned from the door, looking over his shoulder.

"New orders minotaur," said a knight, "you are to take your crew and recover the stolen girl. Thorn Knight Daltigum will be your second in command. He will divine where she is at, then you will lead the party to where she is at."

"Understood," said Kalan, knowing he wouldn't be paid until after he had completed the task.

"Sir Daltigum will be with you shortly," said the knight as he left. The minotaur sauntered off to the mess tent to grab something to eat, thinking that the thorn knights had an uncanny ability to find anyone they wanted to speak with."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Ambral jumps to his feet, tossing the dagger over his shoulder in his elation. He is so happy he almost hugs her.

"We...We...We...need to hurry, come with me! You have Dark Knights and expert mercanaries coming after you. They want that pendent! We need to hurry! Oh my Gods.....Oh my Gods......." He says as he turns and runs back towards the camp.

"Hurry, we need to find Duncan and get our asses out of here! You're in danger!"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kista stared dumbfounded at the man, if not for the seriousness in his voice, she would've laughed. Quickly, and silently, she ran after him.

"What is going on?!" She cried, running with one hand on her sword. "and what do you know of this pendant???"


Back at the "Tree House" Warrl stood near the door, looking back at the people within. A pleading growl errupted from his throat, as he stood facing away from the house. finally giving up, the grass cat walked over to the tall silver-haired elf. As lavender eyes met silver Mirror could hear a soft whipery voice in her mind....

"Come with me now...Kista is in trouble....she is with a friend now...but if we don't hurry....we may be too late....."Books that we will never see:

"I know nothing of the pendent that you wear, of what it does, where it came from, or what purpose it has. I only know it holds within it great power and that the Dark Knights are coming after you for it. They'll try to take it with whatever force they are required to use. We must hurry!"

Ambral plows back into the camp, yelling,

"Duncan! Duncan come quick! I found her!"

Out of the trees a few minutes later comes the knight carying a small rabbit.

"What the blazes is all the yelling about? Who did you find?"

"Her!" He says pointing towards Kista. "I found the one we were sent for!"

"............Her..........." The knight is stupified. "How in the blazes did you find her?"

"Pure luck I might say. We need to mount up and get her out of here! We need to hurry or she may die!"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kista looked back and forth between the knight, and the man...confusion evident in her eyes, The man's words infecting her with a fear that she seemed to feel more often than not lately...

Kista turned her Lavender eyes to the knight..."DO you know what is going on here??" she asked softly, brushing her silver-blonde hair out of her eyes. just then, she reached down to the small pouch that hung from her waist. She held the silver pendant in her hand, the gem in the center was a dark blood red, and glowing dully, and the stone raidiated such an intense cold that she gasped....

"I think that you are a little too late my friends...."

Mirror stumbled forward from the force of the grass cat pulling on her tunic. She stared down at it, and made up her mind in one quick motion. Turning to the others inside her house she said, "I'm going after Kista, this grass cat wil lead me to her. She's in trouble I know it!!!! I must go now! If any of you want to come with me then feel free, otherwise stay here, I won't be long I hope!" she said, mumbling the last part under her breath as she chased off after the grass cat.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Warrl ran ahead of Mirror, trying not to out-run her by too much...His odd, purr-roar cries kept Mirror notified of his location. His mind link was getting stronger with Kista as he ran. his eyes breifly met Mirrors, and his voice rang clearly in Mirror's mind.

"She is with a knight and another man, the knight rides a bronze dragon, she is safe with them...for now..but danger is coming, and they all know it...Kista's pendant is warning them all." Running on they came upon the clearing, Warrl crouched down, keeping out of sight, his tail twitched anxiously.

Up ahead Mirror (And whomever came with her) and Warrl could see the knight, the man, and the bronze dragon, standing next to the cloaked man stood Kista, holding onto the pendant, whos gem was glowing a dull blood red...a color of danger and death.....With love and free will to all....

OOC: Sorry Kalia, had something else in mind.

Kalan continued to push his way through the green. "Damn forrest, are you sure they are this way," roar the minotaur angrily at the cloaked knight behind him. "I can find anything in this crap at night, let alone an elf. I'm a fighter not a tracker, can't one of you knights find their trail."

Sir Daltigum continued to follow the minotaur in silence. After a while he spoke, "If you don't want to be in our service anymore, then you can take your payment to this point and leave. I doubt if I'll need your smelly hide anyway."

Kalan turned and stared at the knight. He seriously considered cutting the knight down there, but he knew the other knights would attack him and he wasn't sure if he could take them all. Instead the minotaur turned and headed into the brush, parting ways with the kinghts.

Sir Daltigum continued on his way, leading the knights in the direction they were previosly headed. "Quiet know, we are close," was all he said."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

Mirror came to a halt behind the grass cat. She could not believe she had mananged to keep up with him!!! She hunkered down next to the cat, restin her arm and some of her body on it's back, trying to make herself blend in. She pulled up the hood of her cloak and she seemed, to the casual viewer, to have dissapeared. She spoke directly into the animals mind. "What do we do now? Where is the danger that you speak of?"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Aldra came through the forest behind Mirror after almost loosing the sounds of their movement. Though Aldra was making enough noise himself as he seemed to find every low hanging branch through the forest there was. Cursing to himself loudly in his mind for being the old fool he was though if he tried to leave something told him he would end right back up with Mirror and her friends. "Why is it I seem to attract every low hanging branch in this god forsaken forest..." Aldra stopped suddenly hearing the quieted breathing and the air around them and the smell of a dragon nearby.

Ambral begins to pipe up, stumbling over his own words.

"The pendent that you hold. It holds great power and apparently there are at least two Dark knights after it. Don't ask how I know, I just do. You have to beleive me. We're not here to hurt you, just help."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, please, feel free to take over Sir Daltigum and his troops. I'd just like to play around with Kalan for a while."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Mirror
05/18/2001 10:50 PM

Mirror was half dragged by the grass cat towards Kista. She grabbed hold of Ullen who was sitting next to her and pulled him forward with her. Aldra walked forward behind them. Mirror, seeing that her cousin was alright, was filled instantly with relief, and went forward to give her a hug. "Don't ever run off like that again child, you had me so worried!" She then noticed the two humans. Her hand quickly went to one of her spell component pouches and she fixed her reflective eyes on them. The words of a spell were on the tip of her tounge when the grass cat nudged her hand and speaking into her mind again told her that these people were not enimies. She looked down at Warrl and considered it's lavender eyes for a moment before relaxing. "Who are you people?" she asked the two humans.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

05/20/2001 5:07 PM

Warrl made sure that Mirror wouldn't hurt anyone here, then bounded over to Kista, and pushed his head into her lap, purring. Kista hugged him tightly and smiled.

"thank you my friend." Kista and Warrl sat there for a few moments, pleasanly enjoying each others presence.

In the distance, un seen by all, silver and red moonlight, glinted off of blue, blue wings, attatched to large blue dragons. the lead dragon was Kethryveris and her knight, Galen.

Kethryveris looked back to her rider, eyeing his right hand, the wound was all but completely healed, but she was sure that it would cause him no problem. Quikly she glanced at the two other, smaller, blues that flanked her. Each had their own rider. The one to her right had a knight of the thorn on his back, the knight had a look of deep concentration on his face, trying to divine where the elf witch was.

The one to her left carried a man, dressed entirely in black, from cloak to boot. he kept his face hidden, and Keth did not trust him.

"Ambral, you'll need to stay with the rest and help them out. Don't worry, I'll take her to Solomnia, the knights can help."

Meanwhile, back on the ground...Ambral turns to the remaining group.

At that moment, someone grabs Mirror from behind and yanks her into the forest. "If you want your friends to live, you better follow me," says the minotaur. Kalan had taken a roundabout way to the clearing and had still beaten the knights he was previously leading. "Not only are there the dragons, but you have a dozen or so knights on foot and one of them is a thorn knight." With that, the minotaur pushes her back into the clearing to see what she would do."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."

She looked around, her eyes bright, and her elven sight picked out the red outline of the minotaur receding back into the bush. She motioned her companions towards her, and relayed what the minotaur had told her. She didn't trust him, but she couldn't afford to run the risk of him being right. "What's the plan then?" she asks.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

She knocked the thought out of her mind, realising that she had the libido of an army of trained mercenaries. "Thankyou Ullen," she smiled, adding a sexy twist to her voice. *Damn* she thought to herself, *I really need to get that seen to!!!!* "Do you have any suggestions about what we should do now?"

We were asigned this by the head of our order, and he let slip that he was repaying a favor to an elven friend of his. All we were supposed to do was find her and protect her until we figured out what was going on. As for Duncan, well, he'll take her back to Solomnia, it's not that long on Greabolt.

With that decided, she grabbed hold of Ulthan's and Ambral's hand's (if there's anyone else here, I'm sorry I forgot you!!! *blush* We'll just say you tagged along!!!!! :D), and began to chant words in the strange and ominus language of magic.

Kalan blinked. One moment they were there and the next they were gone. The minotaur took off. He had no intention of sticking around and seeing a thorn knight thwarted. The mercenary trudged through the forest. He had a friend he could meet anyway. The grump should know what was up. He seemed to always know what the dark knights were up to.

In a fit of rage from loosing her quarry, Kethryveris and the other two Blues detroyed the forest, using spell magic and their own breath weapons, the surrounding area where the group once stood, was nothing more than a smoldering wasteland.

"I will find you!!" She Roared, spitting lightning into the sky, as the thunder roared back. "I will find you, you pittiful elf, if it is the last thing that I do!" with that Keth launched herself into the air and flew south, the direction that she was sure that they went.With love and free will to all....

She was concious of his nearness, and the smell of woodland and leather made her stomach turn over on itself. She really needed to get that seen to! She tried to concentrate on something else. She looked around them.
"Well, to be perfectly honest Ulthan, I'm not entirely sure where we are. The place kind of looks familiar, but it's deffinately not how I remember it! What's going on here Ambral?" she asked the mage, who was busy looking rather scared.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

05/31/2001 3:56 AM

"Thanks Mirror I feel OK now"

Ulthan said as he straitened up. His eyes locking with mirrors. His breath stuck in his chest. How he had not noticed how attractive she was he did not know, even more so after casting her spell, which had left her slightly flushed. Hurriedly looking away before he made a fool out of himself, he pulled out an arrow to examine making sure it would fly straight.
Every now and then he would find himself looking over at her. Shaking his head and returning the arrow he had not really looked at.

"So what do we do now……any Ideas?"

suddenly he looked up eyes wide.

"I must warn my Tribe.we live just north of where we meet the minotaur, they must be warned of the knights and dragons."

Kalan cleared the edge of the forest in time to see the blues descending upon it. Lightning bolts laid the forest to waste. The minotaur didn't stay long. After watching several seconds of the devastation he turned and hurried away. Better to be elsewhere right now, he thought.

The minotaur traveled for some time, heading north. The merc new there were roaming tribes about, but in the foothills in the not to far distance was where Scuttle lived. The dwarf would be able to help the minotaur out of his current predicament. Kalan headed for the dwarfs home, keeping a wary eye out for any of the tribesmen."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Mirror let go of Ulthans shoulders and walked away from him, trying to ignore what she had felt inside her a moment ago. Every now and then she would look up at him, and find him looking back at her. Every time he quickly averted his eyes and studied an arrow lying in his lap. At his sudden exclamation, she went over to stand next to him again. She placed a delicate hand on his shoulder and spoke to him.

"Um, I hate to seem rude, but, are We there yet???" she asked softly, not wishing to truely annoy the knight. Warrl growled softly and rested gingerly on her lap, claws digging tightly into her legs.

Mirror looked form Ulthans eyes which she had been transfixed by down to his hand that held her's tightly, yet tenderly at the same time. She looked back up at him, saw him flush and he quickly discarded it. She said softly, "No, my tribe is not in danger, for I am the last. I am the only elf left of my clan." She dismissed the talk and began to concentrate on her spell.
She began to chant the words of magic and a portal opened before them. Through it they could see the *un-named* priest of Ulthans tribe sitting in front of a fire, praying to Mishkail be the sound of it. Mirror stopped chanting in the words of magic and began to takl to the priest.
"Priest *blank*, it is I." They all witnessed the shocked look on the priests face as he bowed to what he believed to be an image of the beloved Mishkail. "I have a warning to give to you. You must flee the land that you have made your home, for it is about to be laid waste to by an army of Dark Knight's (OOC: I've just got the irony of that name!!!!!!! *blush*). You must move your people on, or they will surely all perish. Do you understand?" The group watched the priest bow again and again to the vision and as he hastily ran off he proclaimed that he would tell them. As the portal began to dwindle, they heared a trumpet call from the location of the tribe. Both Mirror and Ulthan recognised it as the call to evactaute.
The spell complete, Mirror slumped to the floor, her energy spent.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

OOC: Ambral, the up until now silent mage is the half-elf ;) sorry for the confusion!

Ambral scoops her up quickly, and lays her out gently, throwing his cloak over her. Though he was not sure what was going on, he had to help.

OOC:I am so lost in this story! I'm going to screw it up, I just know it!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ooc
don't worry about it Glasswalker. I am sure you won't mess up.


Ulthan moved over, knelt down beside Mirror and brushed a lock of hair from her face.

" I am in your dept. ask what you will, if it is in my power you will have it."

Leaving her to rest he stood and turned to Ambral.

"What do you suggest we do now? Did you and friend have a plan? Perhaps we can meet up with them somewhere."

"You've gotta realize something about us. We don't plan that far ahead. We didn't even know what we were going to do before we got here. We like to wing it."

Ambral chuckles, trying to smile.

"I have no clue what I'm doing. I guess we should find your tribe and warn them."

*Meanwhile, back in the clouds...*

Duncan turns to Kista, and smiles.

"We are almost there. Don't worry, I'll make it quick because I have to use the bathroom."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Suddenly sleepy, Kista nods and rests her cheek on Duncan's armor, while Warrl began to purr softly.

meanwhile. Kethryveris, although very far behind, is following the bronze, using the knight of the Thorn to guide them. Keth looked over at the other man, still clothed in that uniform black still silent, and still she did not fully trust him.

((OOC: I am thinking that they have another Traitor in their midst, if any one would like to take that role...um we'll say the man is an elf, a dark one obviously, but only in name, like Alhana Starbreeze...Lets say that he is related to Kista in some way...like her brother or something a reletive from Silvanesti, which would explain why she won't know him. sound ok????)))With love and free will to all....
Blessed Be! ;)

Mirror

At the words of Ambral, Mirror stirred. "Hey, you little wizard over there, didn't you just see the spell I did!!!!! I didn't just do that for fun you know!!!!" She looked over at the half elf wizard and saw how afraid of her he seemed to be. She retracted her claws. "I'm sorry, I'm just worn out I guess. I always get tetchy after casting a major spell like that one. I just hope the priest warns everyone in time!!!!" She tried to get up, but found that she was still too weak. She looked up at Ulthan. "Could you give me a hand please." As her fellow kagonesti extened his hand to her she once again rounded on Ambral. "And what exactly had you and your friend planned on doing with Kista once you'd got her here anyway?"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Ulthan stared at mirror as if she was a complete stranger.
Which is exactly what she is he thought to himself as he watched Ambral recoil from Mirrors words.
Well it is about time that I stopped acting like a child who has never seen a woman before he reasoned to himself as he placed a hand on Mirrors shoulder.

"Mirror calm down. We need to think this through logically. How sure are we that we are in the right place. I mean you said earlier that you recognised the place but it was some how different. Are we sure that this is where Duncan is taking Kista?
Ambral do you have some way of contacting your friend? If so it may be a good idea to find out where he is.
Mirror I would suggest that you get some rest. That last spell looks to have tired you out.
I will see if I can rustle us up some food. I am sure we could all use some.
Once we are all rested and know where Kista is then we can see if we cannot solve this puzzle of the pendant."

Kalan had been traveling for several days. On the far distant horizon he could still see the destructive dragons. They were traveling in the same direction as he, at about the same rate as the minotaur.

Kalan had found water through the plains and had been tracking it for some time. Eventually he came upon a deserted village near a waterfall. He had lost his direction and needed a place to rest before he once again went looking for Scuttle. The mintoaur crashed in the largest hut, which appeared to have been used by a shaman. He slept through the night, filled his waterskin and took off in the correct direction the next morning."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

Mirror

Mirror looked up into Ulthan's eyes, and the fatigue and worry for her cousin was evident in her face. For some reason, when she looked into Ulthans eye's, she felt clamer, and she found reassurance from the touch of his hand on her shoulder. She smiled weakly at him. "I am sorry, you're right I do need some rest." she looked over his shoulder towards Ambral. "I appologise to you too sir mage, I did not mean to act so harshly towards you, it's just that........." she halted as she fell forwards, feeling weakened, and found herself caught in Ulthans strong embrace.You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Ooc well there's nothing I can do from here, I think we my need a mage to do something………


Catching Mirror he gently laid her down. Sitting down he took out some dried venison, finding a restful position he settled down to wait.

Kethryveris growled angrily, she had been so close to catching that elf...She hissed in frustration, tail lashing against the dusty earth. Galen sighed and ignored her. The knight of the Lilly stood, and walked over to the Thorn Knight.

"anything yet?" He asked, his voice tense.

The Thorn Knight just shook his head and barely grumbled a reply. Galen frowned and looked over to the other man, the Dark Elf. "what about you Dark Elf...Why are you here...?"

The elf looked up at the knight "the name is Mellis, you will call me that. I am here on the interest of the Dark Queen and nothing more..I am HER majesty's Personal Cleric...Do you have reason to doubt me?" Mellis smiled, a sickeningly sweet smile, one ment to choke the life from one's chest.

Galen frowned and shook his head. Kethryveris raised her head and fixed her Amber eyes on the Dark Cleric, Her mistrust for him doubled.With love and free will to all....
Blessed Be! ;)

Kista frowned, realizing that the knight was going the wrong way. Without hesitating, she lept from the back of the bronze, calling upon the spirits of the Air to slow her fall. Warrl Yowled fearfuly as she held him close.

"Sylph, spirit of the air, guide my decent, and allow me to come to no harm..."

she floated down, and touched the gound lightly and began to run. Dropping Warrl. He ran ahead, scouting out the trails, leading her to the best ones.

As she ran, she tried to project images to Mirror, hoping that the distance between them wasn't too far. As Kista followed Warrl, she clutched at the silver and platinum pendant, the Gem glimmered with a warm light. Smiling, she followed warrl into the depths of the forests.

FInally she stopped, in a grassy clearing, with a still pond in the middle.

"Guardian!! Ancient ally, I ask a favor of you!!" Kista called, hoping that her friend was near. a rustle in the brush behind her was all the sign she needed...

"Guardian, I beg you...an Oth, sworn by my own blood-" she paused and pulled out her dagger, and slashed her left palm.

"A blood oath to you, a Blood oath from you....Together, we can try to put an end to this pointless destruction that is plauging your forests!!"

For a moment she stood there, blood dripping freely from her clenched hand. For a moment she feared that her summons would go unheard, when a pristine White figure stepped out of the trees.

The Unicorn, The Guardian lowered her head and, with the tip of her silver horn, she cut a gash in her own shoulder. "Kista StarBlade of the silvanesti, I would gladly oath myself to you to help stop this destruction plauging our planet....."

Kista smiled and stepped forward, and rested her injured hand over the gash on the Unicorns shoulder. "Edea, I thank you for your help...I will not dissapoint you..."

Edea tossed her mane and a laugh, like musical chimes sounded... "and I you Elven Guardian...shall we be off?" Edea kneeled slightly to make it easier for Kista to mount...Bare back, Kista settled herself as best she could.

"the next town we manage, we should pick up some light tack....."

Edea whinnied and trotted off....Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

Goddess Bless! ;)

Sorry all.......too much stuff going on in my life

Duncan turns around to veiw the girl, only to see her falling rapidly towards the ground.

"What the Hell?!"

He sends the Bronze into a dive, trying to catch her, but the Bronze pulls back.

"I'm sorry Duncan, there's a greater power than mine at work here....."

"Get her!"

"No, let her go.....Let's find Ambral......it's all we can do now."


OOC:Were you trying to imply that I'm the traitor?! Well, that's ok I guess. I'm not, but I suppose she can think I am.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OOC: no I wasn't glass, I was only trying to get the story rolling, sorry if I implied that...


Edea pranced nervously as Kista searched their surroundings. She closed her eyes and nodded...

"We should head north, there is a town there, and we can pick up what we need, and then find my friends...."

Edea nickered, and nuzzled Kista's shoulder. "so, do you mind telling me why you need my help here??" The Unicorn snorted delicatly

Kista sighed... "I don't know, all I know is that i am being guided by something more powerful than I can even imagine...This pendant is all I have to link myself to my own past...a past and family I know nothing about..." she showed the pendant and its crystal to Edea.

Edea nosed it gently, and stepped back with a snort of surprise... "There is power there, my friend, a power that rivals that of the gods themselves. Kista, where did you get it?"

Kista frowned, trying to remember... "I don't know...my parents where killed when I was very young, this pendant is all that I have left of that life...what it is, or why they left it with me, I don't know...I am out here journeying for just that purpose...Come on lets go..."

Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....
