Ok, this is my first time. You'll find my character's info in INTRODUCTIONS. Umm, I'm not so sure what this will be about, but if someone joins in, hopefully it will develop. Okay?
____________________________________________________________
Selena had been traveling through the Khalkist Mts. for three days and hadn't seen a soul yet, except for a few scurrying animals. Her whippik had taken care of a few of them which she had eaten at camp. She had been hoping to find someone for companionship on her way to the city of Sanction, but she hadn't. She wasn't exactly sure if she was making her way through the maze of the Khalkists' correctly. She had few maps, and most of them came from Kendermore. And, like most humans, she couldn't make heads or tails of kender-made maps. After 4 attempts, each leading her somewhere she didn't want to be she had found Flotsam, where she had bought a new map before doing anything else. She was now walking along a narrow ridge about three or four feet wide, while trying to figure out her map. Suddenly, her leg slipped off the side. Her arms flailed in circles; she dropped her map. It fell and fell into the bottomless chasm before her. She fell, but managed to cling on to a small tree protruding from the side of the cliff about four feet below the edge. She couldn't reach the top. She knew it was hopeless, but didn't see what other choice she had... "Help!!!"She cried over and over again...

Okay, I'm gonna get kinda upset if someone doesn't at least try to save her and start an adventure, because she's new and she's too young to die anyway...Thanx, Tamara (a.k.a. kenderdefender)

Thunder walked along a narrow ridge, quite bored. Somehow, being a druidess had seemed like a good idea a few years ago. She looked down at her brown robes edged in green and sighed. Suddenly, she heard a cry for help. Peering over the side of ride, Thunder saw a female human clinging to a small tree. "Hey!" the half-elf druidess called. "What are you doing down there? Not very safe, you know, you'd be much better off if you were up here on the trail." With a knowing nod, the druidess lifted a length of rope from her pouch and looked around for something to tie it to. Thunder tied an end to a small stump and threw the other end over the ridge.

Joe had been enjoying a well earned vacation in the wild mountains for a few weeks now. Soon the charges against him in Flotsam would be forgotten, and he could return there. Suddenly the man hears a cry for help."Well well well." Joe muses to himself. "Who could that be? One of those weird druid types who seem to infest these hills, or somone else? Perhaps somone with a bit of cash..."
With those last words Joe had already began to walk towards the direction the cry had come from. As he walks he dons the druidic outfit he had brought along, just in case. Brown edged in green was certainly unlike the black Joe preffered, but a disguise is a disguise. "Allright, what else to complete this? Oh, of course, how could I forget." Joe changes his expression as he picks up a long stick and begins walking with a limp. His face becomes stony and grim, with a trace of anger running through it.
As he arrives he notices that somone else had already begun to save the woman in trouble. He shrugs and watches from the side, hoping that oppurtunity would strike.

Thanx for replying you guys; I didn't know if anyone would! Okay, here goes nothin'. [concentrating deeply]

Selena was startled to hear the humanoid's voice, so calm and nonchalant. She wondered for a moment if it could be speaking to her, until she saw the short legnth of rope dangling down beside her. She only spent a second eying her rescuer before she reached for the rope. Testing for a moment to make sure her new acqaintance hadn't misjudged her weight, she climbed the rope with trembling muscles. (She must think I'm such an idiot)she thought. She leaned against the wall, panting, and then remembered her manners. "Umm...thanks." she mumbled, averting her eyes.

I couldn't think of anything else to add after that, so I guess it's Thunder's turn.

"Hey, no problem!" The druidess leaned over and looked down. "Don't feel bad, you caught onto that tree, right? Once I fell all the way down!" This statement was accompanied by wide-eyed nodding. "It's true, my teacher caught me at the bottom however, by conjuring a whole pile of..." Thunder mumbled something and blushed. The druidess twirled the rope around her arm and stuck it in her pouch. She held out her hand, "My name's Thunder Whiteraven! Yours?"

Selena's look was skeptical at first as she listened to the druidess's declaration, then a hint of a smile played on her lips. She felt unusually comfortable in the presence of this new aquaintance. She reached out and grasped the hand Thunder had extended to her.
"Selena Arrowbaum." (Maybe I should have given her another last name instead of Arrowbaum, she thought. She might reckognize it as a kender name and start asking questions). She tried to act natural as she shifted to make sure her whippik was completely hidden.

A young Kagonesti sprinted through the underbrush, she brushed her way through the small bushes and let her sensitve ears lead her to the calls of distress. Jumping out of the bush and onto a small lonely trail at the edge of a cliff, she sees two people; a kender, and a human dressed in a druid's garb. The kagonesti walked light-footed to the pair, raises a lightly tattooed hand to brush away the long bronze hair from her shoulder.

"I heard someone calling for help." She asked in a melodic voice, which sounded much like singing birds. "Oh nevermind that" She said glancing over the cliff, she raised her dark silver eyes to the human and kender. "You both look like you are alright."

The Wild elf studied the pair intently, "My name is Khalara MoonshaƩl. What brings you two here?" "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin. The scimitar's pointy tip dug in, and how Errtu howled!"- Passage to Dawn

Just for the record, Selena is a human, and I'm pretty sure Thunder is a half-elf. You can look up Selena's (my character's) info in the thread titled INTRODUCTIONS. :-)
____________________________________________________________

Selena was startled to see the Kangonesti errupt out of the bush. She noticed how pleasant her voice sounded, and was breathtaken by the young elf's beauty. She had seen her share of elves before, but... Momentarily forgetting Thunder, she turned to Khalara.
"I'm Selena Arrowbaum. Yes, I was, umm... having some trouble, but I'm fine now. I'm on my way to see the city of Sanction. Oh, I don't believe you've met Thunder, have you? She's the one that helped me."
Selena turned to Thunder and smiled shyly. She turned back to Khalara.
"I tell you, it's because of these maps; I never was good at reading them, but the kender-made ones are especially hard to read. But at least now I know not to try reading them while walking along the edge of a cliff... By the way, do You know how to get out of these Mts.? It's an awful maze."
Selena bit her lip. She knew she was talking too much.

Thunder nodded at Selena. "Of course! I'm never one to miss out on an adventure." Thunder turned and smiled at the elf that just showed up. "Hello, guess what? We're going on an adventure! Sanction is a pretty fun place." The half-elf trails on about the city which, apparantly, she had never been to before but had some very reliable sources about the character of the city.

Khalara smiled and turned her back, "Its easy really to get out of the mountains. We'll follow this trail until it begins to descend, and turn down an old hunting trail that will, within two days time lead us from the mountains."

Khalara began to lead, falling into her soft-footed tread. She turned back around to face Selena and Thunder, "Do you know the way to Sanction? Or are you lost without your map? Because I happen to know a way there too..." "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin.

Khalara turned a light crimson, "This is Selena Arrowbaum" she smiled lightly and indicated the human with blond hair "...and this is Thunder" Khalara said nodding her head in the druidess' direction.

Khalara turned to the armored elf standing a few paces behind her," I'm sorry Clayne, when I heard someone cry for help I got distracted...I didn't mean to leave you behind. I knew you wouldn't be that far behind me." Khalara walked over to Clayne and rested a soft delicate hand on his tanned forearm, she gazed up into his light blue eyes.

"I am showing Selena and Thunder a way out of the mountains. And possibly to Sanction, will you join us?" she reached up and played with a strand of his copper hair that ran over top of his light-weight armor. She looking pleadingly into his eyes, hoping that he would agree to join them. "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin.

Joe slips away, moving in the way a ranger friend of his had once tought him. He would have some fun with this party...as soon as he arranged a few things.

Khalara's eyes brightened, "That's great!"

She slipped away from the fellow Wild Elf and began walking. The hair at the base of her neck rose, and she glanced around cautiously her hand coming to rest on her sword hilt.

"I'll go ahead, I thought I heard something. Keep following this path, I will meet up with you, I'm sure Clayne knows the way to Sanction if you happen to miss the old hunting trail..." with that said she slipped into the undergrowth, noting the grim expressions of the two humans.

She made her way through the forest and slipped through the undergrowth, making no sound. She scouted the perimeter around the trail, and was disappointed that she found no signs of anything that had made her edgy.

Khalara soon returned to Clayne and the others, she sprinted up behind Clayne. Picking up her light footfalls with his sensitive hearing he turned around to greet her.
"I thought I heard something, but I found no sign of anyone passing of late." she explained in a hushed whisper as she pulled his head down to face hers. "It must have been a false alarm...but still we should be carefull."

Khalara turned to Selena and Thunder, "We should reach the old trail soon, then we can rest for the night." Khalara informed them noticing that daylight was fast diminishing.

Selena strained her ears to hear what Khalara whispered to Clayne upon returning from her scouting. She couldn't make out the words, but she could feel the tension in the air and noticed the hint of worry on the elf woman's face. Her new aquaintance, Clayne, seemed nice and all, but she lightly fingered the hilt of her sword all the same. She was never one to trust another with her own safety. If a surprise attack came from somewhere in this maze of bushes, ridges, and hills, she wasn't about to be caught off gaurd.

Khalara led the way to the old hunting path in the waning night, they moved off the trail and made camp. Khalara decided that they should make a fire, she knew that it would be dangerous if there was anyone out there the small group would be in plain sight. But it had to be done, it was the only sure thing they had to ward off the chill of the oncoming night.
Soon a small but warm fire was burning. Khalara sat beside Selena, her back resting against a trunk.
"So why do you want to go to Sanction,Selena? What is there of value?" "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin. The scimitar's pointy tip dug in, and how Errtu howled!"- Passage to Dawn

Thunder watched the elves interact together for a while, then yawned and turned her attention elsewhere. There were some very interesting looking leaves on the ground and Thunder bent down and examined each one, stuffing a few into pockets in her robe. Thunder straightened and dusted her robe off, wondering if she really was leaving her home, the forest. She looked over the mountains and wondered briefly if she should abandon the group and change herself into a bird, cutting a lot of time of the journey. Shaking her head, she headed over to Selena and smiled, "Shall we start?"
P.S. I took your advice and posted my char is introductions.

. Khalara sat beside Selena, her back resting against a trunk.
"So why do you want to go to Sanction,Selena? What is there of value?"

Selena looked at Khalara and smiled, then looked up at the sky wistfully. "It was the closest major city on my map.I just want to see the sights and find new adventure. I want to learn about new people and places. But I won't stay for long; I'll be off to somewhere new after having my fill of whatever's there." Selena lay back on her bedroll and put her hands behind her head, looking up at the stars. Then she heard the half-elf druidess's voice...

Khalara nodded, "I see, I've always dreamt of doing that. The only other place I've really have been is Silvanesti. I didn't see much of it though, and I didn't quite enjoy it. It wasn't a pleasant experience." Her expression shadowed and she gazed at Clayne who was sitting beside her.

By the next day, they could see the Lords of Doom rising up on there right. The sun shone brightly through the leaves, giving the sun's rays a bit of a green tinge. They trunged on through the moutains, the Lords of Doom rising higher and higher as they neared. Khalara hadn't expected for them to be in Sanction for another day, but there quickened pace allowed them to reach Sanction by the time Solinari rose.

"We'll stay with you in Sanction, Selena and Thunder. Maybe Clayne and I will even join you if you decide to go elsewhere." Khalara smiled and turned to Sanction, breathing in the putrid air that made her gag. "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin.

Khalara wrinkled her nose and gazed around Sanction, the smog made her eyes water and she couldn't see much. "Where shall we go? A tavern? Maybe the air won't be as putrid in there." Khalara clamped a hand over her mouth to prevent herself from breathing in the air. Khalara's eyes drifted among her new companions, they nodded in agreement to go find a tavern. Khalara looked around, through her blurred vision she tried to make out the signs on the wooden buildings. Tears were running down her cheeks and she shook her head and looked at Clayne.

"I can't see Clayne, I'm not used to this air it hurts my eyes. Can you lead us to a tavern?" she asked in elven.

Khalara stretched out her hand and grasped his, so she wouldn't get lost when they started walking. "Twinkle gashed against the fiend's calf, while Drizzt launched his other blade higher, aiming for Errut's groin. The scimitar's pointy tip dug in, and how Errtu howled!"- Passage to Dawn

Thunder walked with disdain in Sanction. She hated towns, would much rather be alone in the woods. But a part of her needed the companionship and the adventure that came along with traveling with others. "Someone should clear up this air." Thunder announced with a gleam in her eye. "Chislev!" she cried and lifted her arms up. Almost immediatly a wind began soft at first then harder, blowing the smog away, but making it almost impossible to stay standing. "Oops," the druidess muttered as her bag of herbs flew off her belt and down the street. She instantly began chasing after it.

Unaware she'd done anything wrong, Thunder happily followed the group wherever it went.

Selena had to admit, the air was a lot fresher once Thunder ... cleared it. But they had to walk back into the smog in order to find a tavern. Hopefully it would be cleaner in there. She strained her watering eyes to see. "There!" she said, after some time, pointing to a ramshackle tavern across the street from them. There was no sign in front, but the smell no doubt indicated it as a tavern. Forgetting to wait for her companions, she ran light-footedly to the tavern and slipped inside. The smell of rotting meat caught her nose. She gagged. Even after being out in the smog, her eyes still had to adjust to the dim light. "What you want?" came a voice. Selena looked up, saw nothing, then looked down... "Rat stew good; you try? Two silver." said the gully dwarf, walking towards her with a dish of something that looked not in the least edible. Then she noticed there were more short, thick shapes lurking around in the dim light. Gagging, she tried to respond. "Um, no thanks.." She said between coughs. She slowly started backing towards the door... I will bring justice to those who dare to oppress the kender race, for I am the kenderdefender, and with Fizban's divine help I will... Fizban?

Khalara saw Selena run to the tavern, she quickly followed with Clayne on her heels; she turned her head and saw Thunder running behind them. Khalara stopped at the broken door of the pitiful smelling tavern, a horrible stench of rotten meat and filth burned the inside of her nostrils and made her eyes water. She stepped forwards and opened the door she took one step forward and nearly bumped into Selena.

"Sorry Selena, I didn't see you there. What is that awful stench?" She wrinkled her nose and looked down at the little filthy creature standing infront of Selena with his grubby hands holding out a bowl with a lumpy looking substance in it. "What is that?" she paused "Is that a gully dwarf?"
she sounded perplexed, like she had never seen a gully dwarf before. Her almond shaped eyes widened as far as they could go, her silver orbs stared down at the gully dwarf.

" She smirked a little.(Maybe we need some more of Thunder's magic here, she thought... even if it blew the place down, it would still be an improvement.)

Khalara nearly bumped into Thunder and Selena once she was back outside. "Well, lets try avoiding inns such as that. There is bound to be others here..." She squinted off into the smaug (sp?). "I found another one, it looks suitable."

Khalara walked off into the direction of the tavern she had spotted, assuming the others were following behind her.

Selena could barely see which way Khalara gestured. She definitely couldn't see any tavern, but then her eyes probably weren't as good as the elf's. She stumbled forward with watering eyes and nearly tripped over some rubbish in the middle of the street. "People should be more careful" she said to herself. She nearly bent down to remove it from the street, but then again, who knows what kind of stuff is lying around outside a gully dwarf tavern? She then realised she could see the others. Not wanting to draw attention to the group, she decided against running around shouting everyone's name. She walked quickly in the direction she had last seen Khalara, a concerned look on her face.

Khalara stopped, deciding to wait for the others. Once they were behind Khalara she pointed to the tavern to where she was heading.

"That one looks like it might be run by some humans."Khalara said with a sigh, "At least it'll be somewhat better than the gully dwarf tavern, even if it's run by filth." She added, in her own language so Selena and Thunder couldn't understand.

She continued walking and reached the tavern, she could already smell the ale wafting through the door. She winched, she truly hated the taste of ale it was to strong and pungent. She prefered wine, the wine imported from Silvanesti wasn't bad. She reached out with a tanned tattooed hand and opened the door, she was nearly knocked over by the smell and sight of the place. It was truly nasty, but with a sigh she thought that it would do. She held open the door for the others and walked in behind them.

"Lets go to that table in the back," she said. "Yes, the one in the shadows." she added noticing their expressions.

Selena was the first to waltz over and pull up a chair at the table. It was a little wobbly, and she almost lost her balance. Luckily there was a nice sturdy table there for her to grab onto...or not. Selena, chair and table went to the floor. Before the party had been in the tavern for two minutes, they had the attention of every single person there. Selena got up, set the table and chair back upright, brushed off her clothes, mumbled something about needing sturdier furniture, then looked sheepishly at her companions.
"What?"

Khalara put a hand to her mouth to cover her smile, but the smile could be seen within her dark silver eyes. She sat down beside Selena, her face burned, she noticed that everyone was now looking at them. She rubbed her arms assuming that they were all staring at her tattoos, the people of Sanction had probably never seen a Kagonesti elf before. She felt a hard caloused hand on her shoulder, Khalara cringed at the touch. She slowly turned around to see a drunken man standing behind her. Her eyes widened at the sight of his massive chest and huge arms.

"Heyy-loo little pritty elf maiden," he said staggering visibly. The stench of ale wafted over to her nostrils, making her gag. His moved his hand and took hold of her arm, his fingers digging into her skin.

"Ouch, let go of me your hurting my arm." Khalara tried to yank her arm away from the human but his grip tightened and he was starting to walk away with her.

Khalara tugged and pulled but each time she did, his grip kept getting tighter and tighter. Khalara looked back at her companions, with pleading eyes.

Since all of the other companions seemed a bit too busy (or lazy) IC: (where are you guys?)
OOC: to help Khalara, Selena got up and grabbed the hilt of her sword. "Unhand the elf, lest your true might be tested." she said.
The man just laughed at her. Furious at the indignation to her friend and herself, she kicked the man in the back of the knees, causing them to buckle and him to fall. When he got up, he had long ago let go of Khalara, but he had such an infuriated look on his face, that Selena decided that this wouldn't be as simple as walking away. She unsheathed her sword, and got in her battle stance. As it turned out, though, the man had some connections. Out of the jeering and overly exited crowd (wow, like we don't see a fight in Sanction every day...) flew a sword that the man caught by the hilt. Selena laughed nervously. She gulped. She hadn't had a chance to practice her sword skills in over a month.
Sure enough, after only a few moments of fighting with the now sober man, she found her sword knocked out of her hand. The crowd became louder than ever at the climax of the battle. The man came forward, she backed up, but tripped over a chair strewn on the floor. She was sitting on the floor, backed up against the wall, with the man's sword to her throat when...

OOC: So Sorry KD!!! I've been kinda busy with school, and I haven't had much time on the computer. I don't know where Haplo is in this. I think he dropped out of posting, I'll get him later *winks*

IC: Khalara fell back a step, her butt hitting the edge of the table. Her hand shot down to her sword, she drew it; and it gleamed with anticipation. She jumped forward and knocked the sword from the drunken man's hand. It fell to the ground and skittered to the floor, Khalara turned and lifted her leg and kicked him in the face sending him sprawling backwards with a, "UGH" Khalara dropped down into her fighting stance and held her sword out protectivly in front of her.

Selena looked embarrassed at her poor attempt to help her friend. (At least it was more than the others were doing...) She took a few moments to get back up on her feet.
She had seen Khalara fight. She was a very good fighter; Selena hoped to be able to do that some day. Yet at 17, she was young still. She stood next to Khalara and nodded. She had a few cuts and bruises, but that was nothing. She stood upright. Her battle stance wasn't as good as Khalara's, but it would have to do.
Selena may have been clumsy, lacking in skills and talents, but if she had one good feature it was loyalty. She stood by her new friend and waited...and waited. She craned her neck to look at where the man had landed. He still lay there. His eyes were closed and he didn't move.
"Is he dead?" asked Selena. Without waiting for an answer, she went up to investigate. She felt for a pulse and listened to his breathing. Then she caught a whiff of his breath and gagged.
"Nope, just dead drunk." she said and giggled at her "clever" joke all the way back to Khalara.

Khalara sheathed Taril and walked up behind Selena. "Is he dead?" Khalara looked at the drunken man with disqust. When she heard Selena's response she just shook her head.
"Uh oh.." Khalara looked behind her and saw the tavern keeper start walking towards them. And he did not look happy..."I think we'd better get out of here Selena..."

Selena smiled at Khalara, "Hmm?" she asked. Then she got a glance of the tavern keeper coming towards them. "Oh..." she said and motioned for the others to follow as she followed Khalara.
