OOC:From those of you from Escape from Wayreth the dragon firegold barrowed his name in exchange for a magical pouch.

"Im bored," Douglas moaned. He was a kender that just got wonderlust and well he didnt have any place to go. "I could always go to Palanthas because tas always thought fondly of it or maybe it was solance? hmmm, i guess ill go to palanthas. He headed toward the ruins to the east of kendermoore. As he walked farther into the ruins he was ambushed by 5 goblins. After squashing a coachroach he said "oops i stepped on your mother," That got all five of the goblins mad. "is that a lock because your picking it all the time," He said as he ran into the forest. The goblins ran into a clearing with Madfoot gone. *Crack! A rock slammed into the neck of the goblin he died with in seconds. As they turned around there was Douglas aimming another rock in a tree. Thud! The fourth goblin started taking a dirt nap bleeding from the head. The ground was covered with goblin blood. As he was aiming the third rock he slipped from the tree. "This is interasting," Douglas said with a grin." Struck blind, by the gods!!"

Selena had been wandering in search of adventure near the ruins east of Kendermore. She knew this was where many a kender started out when they got Wanderlust, so all she had to do was wait. Suddenly, she hears a commotion. There is a kender fighting with five goblins. He appears to be doing pretty well for himself, though. She hides behind a tree, and watches to see how he fairs...
Suddenly, there comes a sickening shriek, then a gurgle, then a thud. The fifth goblin is laying on the ground, dead, a small arrow protruding from his back. A human girl with a topknot comes out from behing a tree, her whippik in her hand. She comes over to Douglas and helps him up,"You did pretty well against those goblins," she said, "It's too bad that you fell from the tree. Here, let me help you," she helps him brush himself off. Then, kneeling to his height, sticks out her hand, "Selena Arrowbaum, from the Kendermore Arrowbaums," she said, "and whom might you be?" 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? Fizban, what are you doing?! What do you mean you can't find your hat? It's right on your... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

"Hullo. My name's Douglas Madfoot and well I was thinking about a good place to go would you perhaps know a place? Oh yeah thank you for saving me its my first time but i heard that my uncle Trapspringer once killed three goblin with one stone." Douglas said as he shaked Selena's hand, "Oh yes would you like to come with me it'll be a great adventure, we'll fight all sorts of monsters escape death and we may have time to sleep so what do you say?"
Is dead really worse than alive?

Selena looked down at the kender, amused. She knew how excited kender could get when they first started off on Wanderlust.
"Oh, I know a great place to visit; how does Palanthas sound?" she said.

Selena looked at Douglas, alarmed. She would think that a kender starting out on Wanderlust would have thought to bring at least a few maps with him. After all, weren't all kender expert map readers? Because if there was one thing she couldn't do well, it was read a map. She sighed; she would have to try all the same. She opened her pack and got out a crumpled old map. She began scratching her head perplexedly and mumbling to herself, pointing and shaking her head.
Finally, she jumps up.
"I've got it!" she exclaims.
"Since the sun sets in the west, then this way is north and this way is west, so we should go this way," she says, pointing to the northwest. She starts off at a brisk trot.

OOC: Hey kender fender we ever gonna finish the kender in sanction thread. I thought it was really good.

IC: Hammer Bentiron watched the battle from the edge of the ruines.
he thought to himself.
As the two figures in the distance started to walk away Hammer yelled.
" Hey wait up. Don't leave just yet. I would like to talk to you."
Hammer started to run towords them as fast as his dwarven feet could carry him.

Selena whirled around to face whoever was calling them. Her hand went instictively to her sword. She saw the dwarf and gripped it even tighter. She knew how dwarves felt about kender. She eyed him warily and motioned for him to come no closer. He looked harmless, but she would take no chances when it came to protecting a kender.
"What do you want," she asked, eying him warily. 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?

Turning away the dwarf started off in the other direction humming an old milatery march to himself.

Turning away the dwarf started off in the other direction humming an old milatery march to himself.

Selena relaxed, then got a worried look on her face. Had she misjudged the dwarf? She hesitated, then said, "Hold on just one moment there. Don't go! I didn't mean to offend... It's just that...well..." She looked at Douglas, then back at the dwarf, hoping that he would infer that dwarves usually weren't kind towards kender. She didn't want to be rude, though. There were few enough people in the world who actually liked kender, she didn't want to make it one less. "If you want some travelling companions, I'm sure you'd be welcome to join us." She looked at Douglas, not waiting long for a response before turning back to the dwarf(I forgot his name...) and nodding. She blushed, embarrassed at her previous display of mistrust towards someone who meant them no harm. She would have to stop being so quick to judge...

"hullo My name's Douglas Madfoot," he said as he stuck out his hand. "we where just about to head out to palathanthus. You know i saw a dwarf once and he had a huge beard, like five times the size of yours. Now that i think of it yours is a little small even by human standards, but any way where are you headed!"Is dead really worse than alive?

The dwarf turned around and looked at the pair. He tried to ignore the comment about his beard. His precious beard had been singed in a fire a week ago and it had just started to grow back.

"Hello there Douglas. My name is Hammer Bentiron. Palanthas huh. Well that sounds as good of place as any. You don't mind an ol dwarf taggin along with ya do you."

Afraid Douglas may try to give too thorough an answer to the dwarf's question, Selena stepped up and said, "Of course not. But we've got to get going soon; we don't have much daylight left.

"What's going on?!" Selena shouted. Who would cause harm to an innocent little kender. He had just started off on Wanderlust, so he hadn't had a chance to make any personal enemies yet...
She dragged Douglass to a clearing to the side of the path where he would be safe. Then she hid behind a tree. She got her whippik ready, fitting a small, kender-made arrow into the loop on the end. "Who goes there?" she asked. Her anger at harm coming to a kender overpowered her fear of any harm that may come to herself.

In the trees, and all around us that is where they are, douglas madfoot thought as he clenched his wound. All around the travelers orges came out of the bushes and jumped from the trees. They biggest one pick up the dwarf and threw him into a tree, and said, "Kender you took what is ours give it back!" he screamed as he rushed forward. (ME) What do you like to do?

Selena's eyebrows furrowed; no good would come of fighting. She leapt into the ogre's path, sticking the pointed end of her whippik out to keep him at bay. She looked around to make sure none of the others made any false moves, either.
"Now," she said authoritively," what's the problem here?" 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...

Hammer pulled himself from the ground. His side hurt like mad. but he stood there. There were goblins everywere. He steped back into the woods to watch what happened.

There were goblins everywere. He steped back into the woods to watch what happened.

Goblins? I thought they were ogres? He may have spelled it wrong, but...anyway, since no one else is posting, I'm gonna make something up.

IC: Selena warded off the attackers and gave them a fierce stare. It was hard to look into the ugly faces of the ogres. She actually gave a half-smile as she thought of some taunts she would like to shout at them. But they were outnumbered, and she knew she couldn't outrun them, especially not with Douglass to help. She just hoped these Ogres weren't too dumb to be reasonable.
"Now," she warned, holding a small, steel-tipped arrow fitted in the loop of her whippik, " the next one to move gets it."
The ogres looked at her skeptically; was this puny human girl threatening them? There were six of them, each one uglier than the next. The bloodlust could be seen in their eyes as they looked not only at Selena, but at Douglass, whom she protected. He must have something awfully important to them, she thought. She hoped his wound wasn't too bad. She wouldn't look back over her shoulder at him, though, lest the ogres make a move while her back was turned.
"Now, what's so all-fired important, that you had to come rushing out of the trees like a bunch of gully dwarves running from a lobo wolf and nearly scare my topknot off?" she asked, trying to sound angry.
"That damned kender!" shouted the ogre that had charged Douglass before; he started to step forward, "He st-"
He got an arrow in his throat. He clutched helplessly at it, fell to the ground, twitched for a few moments, then died. Before the others could recover, Selena had grabbed another arrow from her back and fitted it into the sling. They were no farther that a few yards from her, very close range.
"Whose next?" she asked fiercely. They looked at each other as if wondering if they should charge her and mangle her body. She knew she couldn't take them all at once, which meant...she would have to lie.

"I just want you to know," she said, "I'm a, uh...mage. That's right, a renegade mage. Your fellow here was lucky, he died swiftly from an arrow. If all of you don't put your weapons down right now, one snap of my fingers will have you dying an excruciating, burning death that will take days. "
As Selena had expected, the ogres were truley cowards at heart. They took only a moment to decide to put their weapons down and step back from them. two of them ran off, the other three stayed; whatever had been taken was that important to them.
"Now," she asked," what is it that was taken from you, and what makes you so sure it was my friend here that took it?"
She chanced a quick glance back at Douglass, making sure he was still alright. 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? Fizban, what are you doing?!

Pavillon Half-Elven (No relation to Tanis Half-Elven) was walking down the path when he hear some noise. He looked over and saw some ogres, a human girl, a dwarf,and a kender who was terribly wounded. Pavillon being a wizard of the white robes and a cleric of solinari thought he could help. He thought he saw the kender from somewhere before but he couldn't remember. He walked over with his staff and started chanting. A lightning bolt struck an ogre. Then he remembered the kender from an adventure with the wizard Taryis. "DOUGLAS MADFOOT! what have you done now? Wait don't answer that I'll have to cure you before you give me answers." Pavillon rushed over and started praying. The wound was starting to seal up. "Now get up"A local boy kicked me in the butt last week but I just smiled at him and turned the other cheek in fact I wish him well cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell.

"WE WANT OR STAFF" the ogre screeched. Douglas just getting up was grogy and started to wobble. "What staff?" Douglas said.
"The firely staff from the skies!" The ogre said in calmer tone.
"Ohhh, I traded that for this nice feather! Want to see it?"

(Uh-oh) thought Selena (So he *has* made some enemies). When the ogre started to charge towards them like a juggernaut, she pushed her new companions out of the way; the ogre was running with too much force to stop. When he ran past them, Selena sliced him in the back of the knees with her sword. (That has to hurt!!!) But his cries didn't last long, she finished him off within seconds.
Once all the other ogres were taken care of, she turned to Douglass.
"Now," she said,"what's all this about a staff?" 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?

"They wanted the staff that I carry." announced Pavillon. "You crazy kender always getting into trouble. Just like the time we went on the quest for the gem for Taryis." "Who are these other people your traveling with now?"A local boy kicked me in the butt last week but I just smiled at him and turned the other cheek in fact I wish him well cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell.
