The_Hooded_One
06/18/2001 8:33 PM

*Hooded looked up at the sky with a scowl on his face. Thinking that the gods only lived to make his life a misery. Somehow the gods had pulled Hooded out of the realm he had been living in for the past few centuries. As Hooded's anger at the gods increases, the tingling of magic returns to his blood. Despite himself, Hooded can't help but close his eyes for a moment to fully appreciate the ecstasy of magic coursing through his veins once more. The gods gave Hooded no explanation as to why they had pulled him back into the realm of Krynn, as is their way. Although Hooded knew exactly what they had in mind. No doubt there was some quest to chase after. Of course, Hooded would be forced to work with people he hated once again. Knowing the god's sense of humour, they'd probably throw an elf into the equation just to make it all the more unpleasant. Hooded feels a slight cold tingling near his ankle and nearly (I said nearly) smiles for the first time in his life. Snapping his fingers, Hooded's dagger materializes instantly into a tight grip. Turning to talk to his dagger.*

"Well, they obviously want the best since they summoned me..." Hooded says to his dagger conversationally. "Hopefully the others will be as professional as you and I."

*Knowing his fate is sealed, Hooded sits down to meditate and wait for the others to show up. Hopefully they would be able to reveal more of whatever quest he was required to help out with.*

(Quite an entrance,man. Welcome back. To all the newbies out there...meet Hooded One, the greatest murderer and all around bastard in all o' Kyrnn)
Ghostbuster Lillypad, kender, cleric, and undead exterminator, suddenly drops clean out of the sky and falls on Hood. He jumps to his feet happily.
"Oh, that was so much fun!" he enthuses to himself. "Fiz, you are the best God ever!" the kender shouts up to the sky. "What a way to travel..."
Ghostbuster finally looks at the man he had fallen on. "Hooded! Hey!" he greets the killer gladly. "I haven't sen you in quite a while...where've you been?""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Panting, the short figure in black robes comes rushing across the grass. "Master, I have finally found you," cries Wart. The goblin had had a vision, given to him by some greater power, that his master would return once again. The goblin had been sent to protect and serve him just like before. Only, this time, Wart knew who he had to protect Hooded from."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

06/20/2001 1:48 AM

"And Darkness comes from the Enfolding Chaos, that is the mind of Mertonius..."

A cloaked figure appears before The Hooded One, a figure wearing an emerald mask.

"At last, we meet again my old friend... It has been long since we fought as comrades at arms... Such a long, long, time.... I had endeavored long to find your whearabouts for far too long. It is good for you to be back..."

An unholy gleam glittered within Mertonius eyes.

"We have so much to talk about, and so much to plan..."And darkness took his soul and made it it's own, forever trapped in the endless nothingness that is the heart of darkness...

*Hooded sits meditating on a particularly difficult acidic faerie summoning spell. Hooded feels close to grasping the spell after years of effort when he feels a weight crashing on his head, his annoyed expression turns into one of resignation when he sees the kender. All kenders look alike to Hooded, but he could tell this one apart from the rest. Ghostbuster Lillypad no less.*

"Of course, who else would the gods send to torment me but a kender-cleric of Paladine?" Hooded sighs to Ghostbuster with grudging admiration. The gods craft was torture and they knew that craft all too well. "Let's keep our verbal exchanges to a minimum kender. My patience has thinned over the years."

*Hooded turns around to hear a familiar panting sound.*

"Wart make yourself useful and fetch me some herbs." Hooded says as if the last time he saw Wart was at lunch an hour ago. "Make it snappy, take too long and I'll beat you to death."

*Hooded walks away from the kender. Happy to catch even a few seconds away from the child-like figure. Sensing and then seeing someone new appear, Hooded looks at Mertonius.*

"Ah. Mertonius, no doubt you can shed some light on why I'm here. Whether you will share it or no is another question."

A you man comes riding up on a horse quickly stopping suddenly pulling hard on the reins. The horse lifts up in protest as it sets back down as turns the young man looking at the two cloaked figures and the kender. The young man flashes a smile as he finally calms the horse down. His short hair barely hanging beneath his ears giving the impression that it was once cut to look nice. His was scarred with the looks of a wilded animal had beaten him nearly to death. His cloths were mostly leather and torn and very dirty. A tattoo could be seen on his neck marking this young man as a criminal. The look in his eyes casting a cold and calm look to others around him as a fire deep within burned.

He smiled as his hand slowly moved to the finely crafted dagger at his side. "You know I have seen some weird things in my life on the streets, but nothing compares to the look of you two. Oh yeah, the name is Kristaz, and don't ask for a last name... you won't get it." From the way the young man spoke he was barely past his 15th year, and had the arrogance of a noble elven brat. The young man's hand circled around his daggers handle as he watched the two black cloaked figures. Tiver Neehigh

OOC: Oh dear...multiple chars already, Tiver? I advise you not to do it...especially not when Hood's around.Might remind him of a certain guy whose name starts with a P...
Ghostbuster giggles at Hood."Aw, you know you love me! Admit it!" he says happily."By the way, you've dropped your dagger, good thing I picked it up." The kender holds Hood's beloved dagger up, examining it with care."Nice edge."
He looks around, seeing Mertinious and Wart both. "Wow, this is some reunion, isn't it. Mert, I think I still have your ball thingy, holy relic, whatever it is." He checks in his pouches and jacket for a bit. "No, too bad. Its gone somewhere.""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Insano
06/20/2001 4:45 PM

A Gnomish tinker walks down the road and stumbles upon the reunion occuring around his eyes. The Gnome's full name being Insanonovavert......
(on and on and on, I dont wanna get the mods mad at me):)
or Insano for short sees his two adventureing companions, Wart and Ghostbuster. Suddenly Wart turns and is off like a shot into the brambles searching for something.
Insano sees that he was sent off by a rather imposing looking figure, who is cloaked and hooded.
Insano approached the figure

"Oh hello Sir, I saw you sent one of my friends off into the woods there. How did you do that? Are you magic? Or do you perfer the ways of technology, and have created some sort of mind control device? You look like quite the well traveled man. Currently I am working on a new figures for a brand new Gnomeflinger. I was wondering if you have seen any prints, or have any information that would help me with this.''

Suddenly Insano turns about, and sees Ghostbuster going through his pack. "GET OUT OF THERE YOU LITTLE DEAMON, I HAVE SPENT A LONG TIME MAKING THOSE PRINTS....Oh dear, now look, you've made them all dirty. Ah well, I suppose thats the way it goes. Hey Ghostbuster, I just can't wait until I introduce Taylor to that big spooky looking guy. I'll bet he'll just love Tay to bits!"True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

Araguz
06/20/2001 5:48 PM

OOC: I'm new to the form, so I think I'll start with the best.

He'd been watching the party for some time, waiting to see if there were to be any more of the strangers coming. Not sensing anyone else in the woods, he advances into plain sight of the odd company.

"I present myself as Araguz of the Crimson Dagger. I offer my blade, tainted as it might be, to your cause."

Mertonius
06/20/2001 6:36 PM

Mertonius let his mind speak for him, directly to his old friend...

Ah... It seems we have ready tools for our trade my friend. Things have changed since you left.
Nevertheless, the one called The Thorn is of no consequence to me. I can crush him like the
pathetic insect he is...

Mertonius removes his emerald mask, revealing the burnt and scared visage of undeath.

"There are so many who we must count as enemies now, my friend... Many enemies..."

A grim, equally demented look glazed over Mertonius's dead grey eyes...And darkness took his soul and made it it's own, forever trapped in the endless nothingness that is the heart of darkness...

06/21/2001 11:45 AM

OOC: Yeah thats true. I'll just make Kristaz make a swift exit to the forest, and bring him in to a different story some time from now. Oh, Joe i'm still considering myself a newbie at this man so I don't know what you mean by by, "Might remind him of a certain guy whose name starts with a P..." Trust me I did consider the possiblities so I have my ideas. Other than that i'll just go back to what I was doing.

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

Kristaz watched the mask leave from one of the black robed figures. With a sneer, and a few choice words whispered beneath his breath he kicked the his heels into the sides of his horse. With a sharp twist of the reins the horse turned heading towards the west in full gallop. Kristaz never saw anything frighting in his life, and why he was running from this he didn't know why. The thought was placed in his head though, that it would be better to find a new town to make money in then stay there.

*Hooded watches a young man approach on a horse. Hooded sees the criminal tattoo on the horse riding man and considers him unproffesional instantly. He obviously had some balls to perform whatever crime he did, but he got caught... very slack Hooded thinks as he looks at Mertonius with an expression conveying his thoughts. Turning back to the boy, Hooded notes his young age of fifteen. Not even a pup, although Hooded knew the god's warped sense of humour enough to know that often they chose young humans as favourites. Hooded turns to listen to the kender's comments and then addresses Ghostbuster.*

"No. I have tried to kill you on many occasions as you know well Kender. If it wasn't for the hand of Paladine you would be dead now." Hooded says to Ghostbuster in a frustrated tone.

*Noting the kender has once again stolen his dagger, Hooded retrieves it with a single snap of his fingers. Seeing the gnome appear, Hooded's eyes light up at the mention of technology. Although his expression soon turns sour when he sees the blueprints to a gnomefliger. With a wave of disgust, Hooded turns back to Mertonius and listens to his mind voice.*

"Yes... there will always be enemies. Although the way you describe it makes it sound as if the enemy has new tricks to call upon..." Hooded says and considers. After a time Hooded gives Mertonius a quick glance. Indicating the two would discuss the issue later.

*Seeing the young criminal depart on his horse, Hooded sighs. He was obviously some god's pet. But which god? For what purpose?*

"Let us depart. To the nearest town for now. I wish to hear the tales passing travellers have to share."

"Wyrm Warts INDEED", Kilborne was just bending over to pick the wonderous toadstool when he found himself in a field with some odd looking people... three who he knew from previous encounters. The herbalist sneered. "What now? I'm too old for all of this, why can't I just have some peace and quiet!?"
Looking down Kilborne saw that it was the same annoying kender who had dragged him off onto a quest again. Grumbling the Red Robe sat down to examine some strange grass roots...

Araguz
06/22/2001 9:24 AM

Araguz was frightened by the true appearance of Mertonius, and at Hooded's mention of murdering the small kender, but he nonetheless stayed where he was. He saw the other youngster turn and head away into the forest, and was determined to prove his true worth to the company.
"Just what exactly is it we must do?"

Joe_Ghostbuster
06/23/2001 7:12 PM

Ghostbuster giggles."He's just kidding,everyone." he whispers loudly. "He really loves me, deep deep inside."
He then looks at Kilborne and Insano. "Hey, guys! Good to see you again, but we're not saving the world this time. Hooded and Merty are just going to plot and scheme,and i'm going to stop them. Its this game we play, you see.Paladine told me all about how they really love the world and wouldn't really destroy it, and i'm just an excuse. Its really very fun!"
The kender cleric smiles at the shocked assembled people."Anways, lets go to the inn! I need a bit of dwarf spirits."

Wart emerges from the forest before they take off for the bar. "Here, master, I got this of some crazy old mage who knows a lot about herbs. I can make a poison out of it if you want," says the goblin to Hooded."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

06/24/2001 1:21 PM

The slight smell of copper and exotic perfumes combined was the only thing left to mark the passings of the man. If he could even be called a man. He watched the group sliently. Not silently as a thief would watch, but silently as if the man really wasn't there. When finally he heard something that must've pleased him, a smile appeared on his face and two rather large and pointed canine teeth protruded. With that smile, he looked at the goblin and his mind pierced into the goblin's mind.

"Let me in you smelly bastard."

And with that Wart seemed to stand a little taller, smile just the slightest bit and his eyes no longer portrayed his feeling of worthlessess.

06/24/2001 2:43 PM

"Hey Ghostbuster, do you mind if I....join you? I mean it....its a little wierd to be off adventuring all about in the world without the acompanyment of a Kender, I mean since.....I havent seen Taylor around."

Insano glances at the hooded man over his shoulder.

"Are you sure that man likes you? I dont think it's possible for a man that ugly and mean can gave friends, or like anyone" Insano says to Ghostbuster in hushed tones.True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

*Hooded snatches the herb out of Wart's hand and studies it with a critical eye. Hearing Wart say he can make a poison out of it, Hooded gears up to unleash a backhander across Wart's face, but reconsiders at the last moment.*

"Alright then, Filthy Goblin. You make your poison." Hooded says in unreadable tones and tosses the herb back to Wart. "Make it with haste. Be sure the kender notices you make it and takes an interest."

*Looking back around, Hooded notices the large crowd that has suddenly arrived. Most of them gathered around Ghostbuster. Hooded follows the adventurers who appear to be heading in the direction of a tavern. On the way, Hooded looks at the surroundings. The tall darsap trees indicative of south eastern ansalon. A start at least to figuring out this puzzle.*

"How does a tavern help us to complete this quest?" Hooded asks the gathering in general.

06/25/2001 2:30 AM

"At least we are away from them damned elves," says the goblin, moving closer to the kender. It was tough to make the the poison while he walked. "This poison would even be strong enough to kill a dwarf," said Wart loud enough for Ghostbuster to hear him. The tavern sounded good to the goblin. He would be able to get something to eat, and maybe even slip the poison into the gnomes drink. He hated gnomes more then anything."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

Joe_Ghostbuster
06/25/2001 5:31 AM

Ghostbuster smiles a little smile as he blesses the poisin, turning it into dwarven spirits. What could you do, he liked dwarven spirits.
He then enters the tavern, and sits in an easy chair by the fire. Most of the other patrons of the tavern are now at the other side of the place of course. Now, only to wait until Hooded started scheming."I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Insano
06/25/2001 4:27 PM

Insano sits beside Ghostbuster, in a nice comfy chair near the fire.

"Oh dear, this simply wont do" cries the tiny gnome.
Insano leaps to his feet, and runs across the room, grabs a table and drags it across the room to where his chair is, the scraping sound is almost unbareable to the other patrons of the inn.

"Ah, this is much better" exclaims Insnao, who promptly sits in his comfy chair, before the fire. He pulls a quill and parchment from his pack and pulls his chair up to the table.

"No rest for the weary....." mutters Insano as he starts to draw up more plans for a Gnomeflinger.

"Hey Ghostbuster, remeber the real good gnomeflinger I made that we smased up in Flotsam? That was really neat!!!! Maybe I'll try to make another one like that!!!"True honour is bowing to the person whom has bested you.

Colthor
06/25/2001 5:16 PM

A man sat in the darkest corner of the room, in the shadows, where he could see all but none could clearly see him. He watched these newcomers in interest. He had heard a voice earlier that day that he had almost forgotten. "So this must be what he was speaking of " he mused,"interesting. Yes I must watch these..."

The skilled assasin leaned back in his chair, holding his two long sharp daggers by the hilts. His eyes were a strange grey color, they took everything in but let nothing out.

Araguz
06/25/2001 6:45 PM

Araguz was confused, wholly and thoroughly. First the poison, then dwarf spirits, now an inn, and then there was the man in the corner he was sure kept glancing in their direction. He wasn't quite sure of their purpose, and he wasn't fully accquainted with everyone. Nevertheless, he was on a quest of redemption, and he was determined to stay until the bitter end. Deciding to get one question out of his mind. He stood up to make sure everyone was paying attention and cleared his throat.

"Does anyone at all know why we're here?"

Mertonius
06/25/2001 8:06 PM

"This is getting out of hand, my friend..."

Looking at The Hooded One, Mertonius sent his words...

"I have no choice now, my friend. It seems that I have to this task on my own..."

At a simple gesture of his left hand, he faded from sight.

------------------Near Pax Tharkas-------------------------------------------------------

Mertonius made his way towards the command post of his army, an army composed of legions of undead skeletal warriors and assortments of other foul creatures of the night. Using his ancient arts, Mertonius the Masterlich summoned forth creatures from the planes of shadows and beyond. His dark disciples, twelve death knights mounted upon nightmares and dracoliches led the vanguard of his army. He made his way onto his strangely reanimated undead dragon, a composite dracolich made from the remains of various poweful dragons that he bound and animated by his will. His dark magic created clouds of deep darkness, shrouding the land in an eerie corruption of night, a demented dream of darkness and pulsating, living shadows... And darkness took his soul and made it it's own, forever trapped in the endless nothingness that is the heart of darkness...

Insano turn as so that he can scold the little bugger who had wrecked his precious work and comes face to face with a smiling little Kender.

"TAYLOR" screams Insano. "Where have you been? You know I shouldnt be off adventuring around by myself!! Have a seat, let me buy you a drink old friend!"

At the head of the shadowy host, Mertonius dropped a gloved hand, signalling the "Advance to engage"

Skull catapults launched burning death upon those who manned the walls of Pac Tharkas as countless scaling ladders went up. Using dark magics, several of Mertonius's lesser liches prevented the defensive mechanism of the gates. The defending force of the humans within the fortifications fired a volley of arrows at the swarming undead, others shoving the scaling ladders.

"This is child's play for me... I could have torn that gate appart by now... Nevertheless, I must conserve my strength..."And darkness took his soul and made it it's own, forever trapped in the endless nothingness that is the heart of darkness...

*Hooded follows the others into the tavern wondering where exactly Mertonius has disappeared too. No doubt paths would cross and part ways many times before the quest was over. Hooded walks to the corner of the tavern, irritated someone has already claimed the prize corner seat. Instead Hooded walks over and decides to join the majority of the companions at a communal table. Looking around to get his bearings, Hooded notes the man in the corner with a collection of knives. Beginning to get distressed by the large number of inferior of littl'uns such as gnomes and kender, Hooded snaps his fingers at a barmaid.*

"Get me a large mug of dwarf spirits Cow.... and make it snappy." Hooded says and turns his attention to Wart's poison. The poison certainly smelled potent, easily enough to kill a kender with just a small dose.

*Hooded looks over to Ghostbuster, unfortunately the child-like figure hadn't taken much interest in the poison. After many years, the kender had obviously developed some form of immunity against Hooded's scheming. Hooded shrugs it off, not too concerned as there are many other candidates for the poison. Drumming his fingers on the table, Hooded looks up at the ceiling.*

"Ye gods, what quest is it this time? Give me a sign at the least." Hooded whispers so noone else can hear him.

*The barmaid returns with Hooded's drink.*

"Traveller," the barmaid says to Hooded. "Pax Tharkan dwarf spirits. Very rare since it is not made anymore."

*Hooded's forehead creases in thought.*

"We must leave for Pax Tharkas." He says to the crowd at the table.

06/29/2001 3:18 AM

Mertonius waded into the pools of blood that formed on the streets of Pax Tharkas as he and his undead minions slaughtered the populace. He grinned a the foolish clerics, seeing their death approaching inexorably, called upon their gods. He can still remmember how his mace felt as it summoned the powers of the Greater Darkness, and struck down the fleeing priests.

Women, children, and the aged did not escape his wrath as his undead minions fell upon them, rending them limb from limb. Everywhere he look, all he can see is death...

A smile formed on his undead visage.

He raised his hands as the last of the populace was executed, sacrificed in the glory of his name.

A deep rumbling noise can be heard and felt as he started gathering the Greater Darkness around him, within him.

Then it started.

Slowly, but increasing in pace and numbers, the slaughtered citizens started getting up, taking any weapon or implement into their undead grip. He then stared south, towards the kingdom of the elves.

"Forces, Deploy!!!"

And the undead army swelled in numbers. Not one corpse was left in Pax Tharkas as Mertonius and his army marched towards the elven lands...And darkness took his soul and made it it's own, forever trapped in the endless nothingness that is the heart of darkness...

"Our quest must be to kill the army of undead." Hooded says and snaps his fingers, his dagger materializes instantly into a tight grip.

*Although the zombies seem uninterested in the questing companions Hooded notes, they seem to be heading to the elven lands in the south.*

"Actually, lets not be so hasty. The gods work in mysterious ways. We must be here to aid the undead army...." Hooded improvises, "on a journey to put their souls to rest." Hooded adds, almost drooling at the thought of an undead army walking into elven lands.

An elven contingent met the army as it stormed into Qualinost.

Already, its number has swelled as the army swallowed and assimilated any that it kills, may it be human, elf, dwarf, ogre, or animals. Even the living trees were corrupted in mobile perversities that stalked and slew as they went.

Again, Mertonius stared at his dead and lifeless surroundings.
Again, he called forth the darkest magics.
Again, the dead answered...

And, with a signal from horns blown by undead heralds...

"Advance to contact!"

The Army started making its way eastward, towards Thorbadrin....

OOC: Mert, you seem to forget that whenever someone marshals an army and tries to take over the world, the world rebels against them (even against Raist)."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

Mertonius
07/04/2001 2:00 AM

At the command tent of Mertonius, a day before the assault on Thorbardin.

He paced back and forth, walking the paths of his memories, memories that took him into the depths of the mountain kingdom.

"When Chaos bargained with the gods it was made that He would spare their creation if they left. However, since their return, He plots again for the destruction of all..."

Mertonius stared into the dark, moonless night.

"It has begun, His army is now marching, marching within the ancient halls of the dwarves..."

He stared towards the his still growing army, an army that is inumerable but still pitifuly few compared to the army that the Father of All and Nothing has in command.

Again he probed deeper into his memory, recalling the ancient spells that were lost to him in his banishment from Krynn after the gods left.


(OOC: Ha ha ha, I won't spill al the beans right now. Just try getting to Mertonius first. And as I said, pass by Qualinost and Pax Tharkas too.) I thought I was alone in the dark... Now, I Know I am Alone In the Dark... Marc

*Hooded scratches his chin thoughtfully.*

"Well killing elves is never a bad decision..." Hooded mutters to his knife and heads towards the elven realm.
