(OOC:I'm starting all these threads because I'm testing storylines that I think would be good to write, but I don't have any outcomes for them. If this and Knights of Black Armor turn out well, you can expect within the next few years two books I'll be writing. If they can get published, so if you wanna help join up and make these interesting. Do whatever you think would work good in a book and that people like you would read.)

Erinz Frostbringer walked with Justin Swyftsword down the roads of Solace. The human mage was but an apprentice of the Red Robes, his specialty was spells dealing with ice. Winter was his favorite time of year, for then his spells excelled beyond most human ability. His old friend, Justin, was a Silver Robed mage with magic in his blood and sword at his side. They walked with speed to the forest around Crystalmir Lake.
"Do you think anyone followed us," Erinz asked.
"If they did, my hearing didn't pick anything up." Justin looked back and pushed a few branches out of the way. "I don't see anyone either."
"You're the one with the good seeing and hearing so..." They exited the forest and looked at the sandy beach before them.
"Here is where that wizard said to meet him. Did he say anything more than come to the lake this night?"
Erinz shook his head. The red hair he kept tied on his neck swung loosly around his head. He reached into his pouch for his spell components. He cast a spell for light and a ball began to float above his head. It shone with an eerie blue light, and it was cold to the touch.
"Look, something is lying by the lake over there." Justin followed his companion and looked at a sword of dwarven make, with amythest(OOC:i think that's right. how am I suposed to be a writer when i can't spell...hehe), sapphire, and a ruby within the hilt. Words appeared, written in the wind that only Justin could read.
"The wielder of this sword asks the assistance of the souls who find this on the beach. The mage, Apollyn Trojek, is held within the valley of Nereka, forever doomed to face torment. Drawn by the promise of more magic, he stepped into a trap of the Dark Queen. May the ones who find this take pity upon this mage, and save him from the horrible life that awaits him..." Justin stopped speaking. The words disappeared from his vision and he looked at Erinz, who looked back with a concerned look.
"We will need help." Justin nodded. They took the sword, Justin strapping it to his pack, and they journeyed back to Solace, to find the help they needed for such an adventure...Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Mirror
05/26/2001 10:00 PM

Mirror walked out of The Inn Of The Last Home, chuckling to herself and shouting farewells and goodnights to friends. She walked down the steps that wound around the mighty vallenwood the inn was balanced in and headed towards her own home.
Mirror was a Kagonesti elf, tatoo's adorning her body. She was also a mage, as well as being a fairly decent archer. She belonged to the order of silver robes, and as she walked along, the velvet robes gently rustled around her boted feet. Her eyes were what she had been named for. They were like the surface of a mirror, reflecting everything they saw perfectly. Many people found it difficult to look he in the eyes. They found it disconcerting to see their true selves reflected back at them whenever they looked at the elf maiden.
Suddenly, she noticed two figures walking towards her, one of them wearing a silver robe like her own. She recognised the mage instantly.
"Justin!" she called out to him, running towards the two, her white hair which had been braided at the temples flowing about her like soft clouds on a summers day. When she reached Justin she hugged him as he spun her round in a circle, making her giggle even more. "How are you my friend? I haven't seen you in such a long time! What have you been up to?" she asked the other elf when she had got her breath back.
You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Justin spun his good friend and let her down easy. She was a beautiful elf in his eyes, and Erinz didn't disagree at all. "I am troubled, dearest Mirror. We have a problem." He saw her eyes cloud with fear, the mirrors that no man could look in without feeling strange...no man but Justin. His own sky blue eyes were intriguing to most, and they reflected his mind, not the world.

Erinz stepped forward to speak, his red robes gathering dust on the bottom of them from his walking. "M'Lady, I am Erinz Frostbringer. The problem that is troubling Justin is that of a magical matter. A mage came to me a fortnight ago and said to meet him at the north side of Crystalmir Lake this night. He said it would be worth my while. I felt it would be dangerous, but I knew for some reason I had to go so I called Justin to help me. What happened here took a strange turn..."

"...We went to the lake, as the mage asked. There we found this sword," Justin said, indicating the sword strapped to his back. "Words written in the wind appeared as we approached the sword. They spoke of a mage, trapped in the Valley of Nereka because the Dark Majesty made a magic trap for him. It didn't tell us how, but it said to please take pity on this mage and save him. We decided to take the charge, and save this mage, Apollyn Trojek, from the Dark Queen's grasp. I just hope it is not some trap to capture two low level mages."

As he related the story, he watched Mirror face change in many expressions. Erinz spoke again. "Would you like to journey with us?"Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Wynter walked the streets of Solace as she did when she was in the town. It was beautiful at night and she enjoyed the tree-town. She saw many people walk by, and she smiled and greeted them with joy. She saw three mages standing in the road and decided to walk by to see if she knew them.

Oh, did she know them!

"Justin! Mirror! What brings you to Solace? Why hello," she stated to the red robed mage, the odd-ball compared to the three silver robed mages. Her deep silver eyes, like that of silver cooled from the forge and before it was cleaned, lit up in curiousity. She noticed the human mage was very handsome, even for elf standards. The Silvanesti smiled her most charming smile and extended her hand. "Wynter Firecaster, at your service." 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.

A kender sees a group of mages gathering and runs up the street to them. "Hi, my name is Thistledown Kendergnome. I'm actually a kender but I was born and raised in Mt. nevermind. There sure seems to be a lot of mages in Solace today! Are you having a convention or something?A kender born and raised in Mt. Nevermind? And it didn't blow up the mountain?!?

Grog sat in the Inn of the Last Home. Some tattooed elf lady in shiny robes had just left. The ogre sat eating his meal with his left hand. The ogre had become very good at using his left hand over the past two years. He had to for survival. An ogre with only one hand has limited options after all. Adapt or perish.

Grog had lost his hand a couple of years ago. He was locked in a prison, in a place he knew not where for a crime he didn't commit. There were others in the prison, his little kender buddy Ghostbuster, an elf lady different from the one that had left earlier, a female kender, and the evil man. They had eventually escaped but it had cost the ogre his hand. Grog had made his way to the Silver Tower to talk with the head of the silver robes, the Thorn. The powerful mage had been unable to fix the ogre.

Now, after two years of travel and many failed attempts, Grog had come to Solace hoping there was someone who could fix his lost hand. So far there was noone who could help him so the ogre had stopped to eat. Maybe something would come along."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 was in a very good mood (or maybe she was just a bit tipsy, she wasn't sure!), so she went around and hugged each of the newcomers and old friends in turn, making sure to retrieve her pouch of rose petals from the kenders belt. She looked back at the human mage, "Of course I will travel with you, if you would have me!!!" she said, her good humour showing through. "Now, why don't we go to the Inn and drink to our new adventure? I'll buy the first round!" she yelled, "Race ya!!!!"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

"Justin, remind me never to let an elf-maiden get drunk," Erinz commented as the Kagonesti took off toward the Inn of the Last Home.

"I will make sure, my good man." Justin gave Wynter a hug and spoke again. "I'll explain everything in a minute."

"Hello, Thistledown. Would you like to join us?" Erinz asked, bowing slightly to the kender and taking his pouch of sulfur before it entered the kender's pouch.

Erinz and Justin both followed the drunken Mirror, Wynter and Thistledown following them to the Inn of the Last Home to save Mirror from coming close to a drink.Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

Wynter nodded and followed the other to the inn. A drink would hurt her.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.

Mirror
06/03/2001 1:35 PM

Mirror ran back up to the inn, silver robes flying about her ankles as she did so. She slamed bodily into the door and as it swung open she yelled "I beat you, I beat you!!! And I know I said that I would buy the first round, but since I won the race i think that Justin should buy! Hey everyone, the drinks are on Justin!" a resounding YAY!! went up from all in the inn, all except a figure in the corner, an ogre by the looks of him. She went over to him and plonked herself down in the seat next to him. Seeing his serious expression, she pressed her face close to his and asked in all drunken seriousness, "What's wrong friend, why so glum?"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

"Grog need new hand," explained the ogre. "Noone fix. Not Thorn, not Mertty, not little friend Ghostbuster. Noone.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Mirror
06/04/2001 11:47 AM

Mirror looked at the ogre, now a little less drunk and put a hand to his stump. "I'll see what I can do," she said, "though, I can't promise anything though! I'm not a cleric, and know only a few rudiments of healing magic, but I will try for you." She closed her eyes and began to chant, some words spewed forth in the language of magic, some in the language of the elves. Suddenly Grog felt a surge of heat hit the stump where his hand once was, and a strong light erupted around it and seemed to be eminating from Mirror's hand. The light grew to such an intensity that it blinded the ogre for a few moment. In his handicapped state, he could not see, but felt that the heat had gone, and heard the sound of the kagonesti elf collapse onto the table. He blinked his eyes to see if the spell had worked............................. You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Justin ran up the stairs and stood in the entrance to the inn. Erinz was right behind him. He looked over and saw Mirror weaving a magic spell. Before he could do anything, Mirror and healed an ogres hand. He looked in astonishment at it and smiled. The elf had pulled something he never knew she could.

Erinz smiled and tossed a bag of steel coins to the innkeeper. "Take good care of that and the drinks it will buy."

ooc:i hope this goes a while. I was really leaning towards this one for a story.Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

The_Thorn
06/07/2001 9:53 PM

OOC: Sorry Justin, but I'm not quite ready for Grog to have his hand back.

Grog looked down and realized why he felt the heat. The metal cap that a dwarf had put over the stump had become heated by the magic. "Not work," says Grog. "Thanks. Nice and toasty now." The ogre continued to eat his stew."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
06/08/2001 11:54 PM

Mirror, feeling fatigued and woozy and also somewhat sober now, looked up at the ogre. "I am truly sorry that it didn't work friend," she said to him, placing her hand on the stump. She saw the other two mages, Justin and his friend enter the inn and said to the ogre whilst waving for them to join her, "Maybe these two mages can help. Will you let them try?"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

The_Thorn
06/09/2001 6:21 PM

"Sure," says Grog, "but they might not fix either.""Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

ooc: no problem thorn. I don't even know why i said it.

Justin saw Mirror waving them to her and he walked over, Erinz quickly behind. Wynter followed and they all sat down with the ogre.

"Well, what is this about magic and a hand?"Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

"Magic? Where?" Thistledown struggled through the crowd of people to the Ogre. "Wow, an Ogre! I've never met an ogre before. How did you lose your hand, and why is that metal cap glowing red like that? (It's still hot, right?) Bye the way, I'm Thistledown Kendergnome. I'm actually a kender but I was born and raised in Mt. Nevermind.Free the flame and sear the grasses,

"Well, I believe a drink is in order for myself." Erinz waved a barmaid over and ordered some dwarf spirits for the table he sat at. Something was oddly strange about everything around him and he was intent upon figuring it out...after a few drinks of course.Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

"Save little friend like you," Grog said to the kender. "Warm and toasty," he said waving his stump."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

06/10/2001 10:45 PM

Mirror looked up at Justin. "This is my new friend Grog. I tried to give him a new hand, but my magic did not work. I wondered if you would be able to try something?" She flashed her eyelashes prettily at Justin andgave him a look like a wounded puppy dog, "purleeeeeeeezzzzzeeeeeeeee!!!!!?!?!?!"You are the Weakest Link......Goodbye! :D

Elven_Ranger13
06/11/2001 7:53 AM

Justin looked into Mirror's eyes and he couldn't say no. He looked around for Erinz and Erinz nodded. Two mages would be better than one.

"Alright, Grog, let's see what we can do." Justin placed his right hand near the stumb and Erinz placed his left. With the other hand they pulled out a few spell components and started to speak, Justin in elven and Erinz in magic. A blue frosty light appeared around Erinz. Out of his left hand a phantom image of a ogres hand appeared. As it placed itself near the stumb, Justin erupted in a silver light, blinding the whole room.Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

06/11/2001 1:50 PM

Wynter was in a trance for the most of the time. She was kicked out of it when a silver light erupted from Justin. The young man beside him fell to the floor and Wynter ran over, trying to help him. Justin still stood and fought to stay up.

Erinz opened his eyes to see Wynter. "Hey, are you ok?"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.

Mirror lept up from her seat and put her arms around Justin, supporting him as much as she could. She wiped a stray strand of hair from his eyes and looked into them. "Are you alright Justin?" she asked, worry etched into her finely moulded features.If people could have it all, there would be no need for a Jerry springer Show...................................:D

06/11/2001 3:19 PM

Grog blinked. Too many lights, he thought."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

06/11/2001 4:17 PM

Justin looked back into Mirror's eyes as the light died down. "I'm fine, now that I can see you."

Erinz looked at the elf hovering over him. What did I do to get this elf over me and how can I do it more often, Erinz thought. He smiled and spoke wearily, "I'm fine. Thank you."Hold your head high cause you never know what you are gonna hit if you don't.

06/12/2001 4:04 PM

Wynter nodded and helped the handsome mage up, slightly bumping into him on 'accident'. She laughed as did he and they looked over at Justin and Mirror, looking deeply into each other's eyes and they laughed again. She looked at Grog's hand and gave a sympathetic look to the ogre. "I'm sorry, Grog, but that didn't work either. It's not red anymore, it's blue and shiny now."This time I'ma let it all come out. This time I'ma stand up and shout.
