OOC: I don't know if this will be anygood. But what the hell. The time line on this is before istar was thrown to the sea. please feel to jump in


The first memory of life that taris madwistle remembers is a picture of a giant man in black looking over him. Thats when it all began for the little kender. At that time he was no more then 3 months old. He had no idea what was going on at the time but he was given a specail gift. The gift of magic. Taris was the first kender to be instaled wih the art of magic. Though he had no idea at the time (Or now for that matter)what he had. Years passed. Taris continued to learn the art that his master had taught to him. his master was the great mage Kantor the crazy. Kantor vowed never to let the kender out of his towr. (cause who would want a kender mage running around.) But as happens with all Kender Taris got wanderlust. He eventually broke out of the tower and started through the woods to the nearby city. This is were our story begins.

Taris was skiping through the forrest surrounding the tower. He was in wonder of all. He had never seen such things before. Oh he had heard of them but he but never actually seen them. Slowly he noticed that the trees started to thin out. Soon he found him self looking upon a great city from a large hill. There were scores of people around. He did not evan know that there that many people alive. He set back and watched the people bustle in and out of the city. Maybe somthing interesting would happen he thought......

OOC: How did the mage acquire a baby kender??? Did he kidnap him? :-)
Anyway, I'm gonna try to think of a new character; I think Selena is getting old... Here goes nothing...
____________________________________________________________
IC: Carryall Smallstep had just gotten to Palanthas from Hylo, his hometown. He had been on Wanderlust for years, but he liked to go back to Hylo to check up on things every now and then anyways, just to make sure everything was okay. (He was unwontedly worried and cautious for a kender.) He was still stretching his legs from the long voyage when he noticed a short figure standing on the top of a hill. Normally, he would continue walking, but he wondered what a kender was doing standing outside of the city instead of coming in hurriedly and getting a piece of all the everyday action. So he came up the side of the hill, and, sure enough, it was another kender. Carryall kept just enough distance to be safe (there was an aura about this kender that didn't feel...normal) and introduced himself.
"Hullo, I'm Carryall Smallstep from the Hylo Smallsteps. Who are you? And where do you come from? And why are you standing on top of this hill? Why don't you come down and see the rest of the town? I admit this does give you quite a nice view of the city, but the best part is being *inside* the city and seeing all the awfully nice things they have there" Carryall panted, having said all this in one breath. He waited for a response. 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 he-... {Blushes} Hold that thought...

OOC: i don't know how he got ahold of the baby kender. The kender does not remember. :)

Taris looked at the new creature in front of him. It was a kender just like him. Taris got very excited. This was the first kender he had ever seen. (Except himself of course.)

"You are a kender are you not. Wow this is so exciting. I've never seen a real live kender before. Whats it feel like to be a kender. Of course i should know that because i am on i guesse. What is that big city down there. Were are you headed to. I don't know were i am going. I have never seen so much in my life. Of course i've never been outside either. So i guesse that would explain it."

Running out of breath Taris was forced to stop.

OOC: yeah, but if you're the author of the story, then you should know everything about it. Make it up! I wanna know! :-0 :-)
IC:
Carryall looked at the kender, amazed. Was he joking? How could he have never seen a kender before? He took step back. Something about this kender wasn't right. Never been outside? Perhaps he had just started out on Wanderlust and he meant he had never left home before. He took a few more steps back before he felt safe.
He started to answer the first few questions that Taris asked him, but they just kept coming. He finally waited for the questions to stop. He didn't remember all of them, but he tried to answer as many as he could anyways.
"This is Palanthas," he said, "one of the biggest cities on all of Ansalon...And what do you mean you've never seen a kender before? Where do you come from?" 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?!

"Oh well i come from this really nice tower on the other side of theses woods. I've lived there my whole life or atleast as long as i can remember. The man that i lived with siad that he caught my mom sneeking around his tower with one of his spell books. As penence for "borrowing" it. He made her give me to him. Atleast thats what he told me. You know you are the first kender i have ever seen. There were never any other kender in the tower. It was pretty boring alll i ever did was sit around and make things move or blow up or somthing. It was fun at first but then it really got boring. But you should know what its like. I'm sure you used to the same thing all the time."

Taris then turned and looked at the city. Thought of all the adventures he would have floated through his head.

(That's sick!) thought Carryall. He couldn't imagine someone taking him away from his parents like that. He looked at Taris, wide eyed, while he gave him his account of his life and where he had lived. So *That* was why something wasn't right about this kender; he worked magic! Carryall would have to help the kender get as far away from the evil mage as possible.
"Come on; I'll show you around Palanthas." he said, and grabbed Taris' arm and dragged him into the city. He started weaving through the alleyways with him, hiding in the darkest shadows so they wouldn't be seen. He made sure Taris was following him. Then, he asked, "How would you like to leave Palanthas and go on an adventure somewhere else?" It wouldn't be safe for the kender to stay here while the mage could still be after him. They would have to leave...soon. 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?

You know i have this strange feeling as if there wouldn't be anything else i would rather do. Were do you want to go. I feel like i could walk all day and all night. But why are we always walking in the shadows. It would be mudch easer to look at stuff if we were in the sun light."

With this he started out onto the streets.

Carryall almost laughed at Taris' latest statement; he had to be joking. Even a kender who had been locked up in a tower with a mage all his life *had* to know how the general population felt about them. He turned around; Taris had started for the street.
"Stop!" he hissed, but he was too late. He dashed to hide in the shadows and see how Taris would fare. Shouts of "Kender!" were already starting to come from a few vendors, causing quite a commotion in the marketplace. A deputey was already starting to make his way towards the oblivious Taris.
"Do *something*!"Carryall shouted to him, at last not able to bear watching him be carried off into a jail or worse. He hoped, for both their sakes, that Taris' life spent with a mage would be beneficial to them right now.

Taris turned to see the deputy coming.

" Oh can you help me. This is my first time in the city. And i really don't know my way around. It is a large city isn't it. And quite beutiful."

Taris stopped and waited for the man to answer. But he didn't. He just walked up and grabbed the kender by the arm.

" Your going to jail for a very long time. You won't see the light of day for a while. Damn kender."

Well as much fun as that seemed Taris had seen enough of the inside of buidings for a while. So he started to squirm. But by that time the gaurd had a good hold on his clothes. Taris remembered in the tower once his master had pitted him up against a bear and the animal had latched on to him much like this. Taris tried to remember what he had done. But he just couldn't bring it up.

While he was thinking he didn't notice it but his figure slowly started to become a little foggy. It then became a cloud of mist. The guard so scared ran away. Along with almost all of the crowed. Taris feeling himself be released turned back to were Carryall was standing. Not knowing what had happened.

" gee what was that all about"

Carryall just looked at Taris wide-eyed, in amazement. Finally, he shook his head to clear it and sorted out his thoughts.
"How...How did you do that?" he asked, amazed.
His kender mind was thinking of thousands of questions, but his small mouth wouldn't let them all out, so he just stood unwontedly quiet, waiting for a response.

" how did i do what."
Taris asked still not aware of his state.

kenderdefender
09/29/2001 10:04 AM

Carryall spluttered. Taris had to be joking.
"How did you turn yourself into a puff of smoke and float around?!" He rifled through his pouch until he found a small looking glass and held it up to Taris so he could see himself. 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?!

Taris laughed. " Oh that. I learneed to do that along time ago. What you don't know it?"
Taris changed back to his kende form.
" so what do you want to do now."

Carryall knew that it could be more difficult to get the kender out of the town, especially if he was a magic user. And so oblivious to the way people felt about kender! Then he came up with an idea...
"I know what we can do!" he said, " Let's play a game of hide and seek! Let's see who can get out of the city first, without anyone seeing them!" He knew it was lame, but hoped it may interest the other kender. Hey, if he had been locked in a tower his whole life, this *had* to be interesting.
He looked earnestly at Taris. 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?

" Alright it sounds like fun." Taris made a funny symbol with his hand and blinked out of site. He reappeared outside the city wall. He looked around expectantly. Looking for his friend.

Taris looked around expectantly. his new friend was still not there

OOC:

{Blushes} Sorry; I've just been really busy with school and stuff and I don't have time to get on every day. And when I do get on, I don't have time for all the posts! Sorry!
IC:

Carryall blinked; Taris was gone in a puff of smoke.

"Hello?" he asked hesitantly, thinking maybe his new friend had just performed a dissapearing act or an illusion. No answer.

"He must have gone to the outskirts of town; no fair, he cheated," Carryall mumbled to himself. Still, it was awful interesting to know a kender who was also a mage.

Carryall made sure the coast was clear, then sneaked out into the street. Suddenly, just as he was about to go through a secret entrance/exit to the city known only to kender, a rough hand grabbed him from behind.

"You again?!" asked the man, his voice like acid.

Carryall looked up; the man was the same guard that had apprehended Taris earlier.

"You'll not be escaping this time," he said, and, before Carryall could object, he had shackles over his wrists, ones just small enough for a kender.

Carryall was just about to explain to the deputy (OOC: deputies and guards are the same thing, right?) that he was just leaving, when the man pulled him along towards the jail. Carryall started to shout for Taris, but the man gagged him. However, as he was led down the street, a great commotion started upon the crowd seeing the kender. A commotion enough to pique the interest of anyone...especially a kender. (Especially one who has been locked up in a tower all his life ::wink, wink:: ) 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...
