Ravenhurst ST Posted June 23, 2016 Share Posted June 23, 2016 “Gather round little Princes and you too Princess. I have another tale for you.” The old scribe settle into the cushions as the children took places near him. Princess Iradea sat right next to the ancient storyteller “Is the Arrow of Shadows in it?” She asked excitedly. The great Scribe chuckled. “Perhaps...” Neeva sat tending the fire, she would have rather been with Tharra and Aridha hunting but with the men, Yngvar and Alberich, getting supplies in the village, someone had to stay and tend the camp. She didn't waste her time she had a fire going and the big copper pot had water on to boil, and now she settled back to compose her latest song. Suddenly a loud creaking sound drew her attention to the old Oak behind her. Her eyes sought the origin and fell on one of the largest limbs just as it cracked and fell. She deftly rolled out of the way as the huge limb crashed to the ground and smashed her fire spilling the water from the pot dousing the flames. Neeva got up saw that the end of the limb was rotten. She frowned and went to the tree it appeared healthy her gaze traveled up to the jagged end where the limb broke. In a fluid motion she scaled the tree and peered closely at the place where the dead limb had been. The tree had fooled her it looked healthy and strong but the insides were dead and rotting. Saddened at the revelation Neeva climbed down and went about moving the fire to a place where further falls would not prove a danger. When she went to retrieve the pot she saw that it had been bent badly by the impact of the limb, she chuckled, no worry we have a dwarf he can beat it back into shape. But then she noticed something. A crack in the bottom, turning the pot over she saw that the bottom of the pot had split from edge to edge. The split running straight thru the Qudeth tax stamp. She looked at the tree, at the dead limb on the ground and at the pot in her hands. Her frown returned. Alberich and Yngvar waited in the pisshole these people called a tavern for their supplies to be gathered and delivered. The village was a sight better than other they had seen in recent weeks, it was situated on the road leading out of the forest before the hills of Ammurath. They traveled this way mainly because of the wizard and the ha;fling both had heard that the men they sought had traveled this way and had convinced the rest to come in search of riches and hoped for glory. And also because they had little else to occupy them. Alberich drains his mug of the beer which was surprisingly good his eye still on the man sitting a few tables away. The man was Ammuranth Hillman who had been casting his eye their way for a good long time now. “Wot!?! Do I got something in my beard?” The Barbarian Hillman stiffened and Yngvar looked up from the parchment he had been scribbling on. “Pardon my lord, no offense was meant but correct me if I am wrong. Are you not the The Freeblade Alberich of Kal-Zinan, from the songs? I ask be cause of the mace-axxe you carry Lord.” Alberich sits a bit straighter,Yngvar stifles a laugh. “I am he but no Lord am I.” Announces the stout dwarf. The hillman bows his head “As you say my...sir.” He stands and moves to their table Both tense a spell coming to Yngvars mind while Alberich readies to defend. “My name is Bearn Tuham, a warrior sworn to service of my warlord Evarr Hallborn. May I sit?” Alberich relaxes and gestures to a seat. Yngvar folds up his parchment and leans forward to listen. “Evarr Hallborn is a powerful lord amongst our clan, and a good man to have on your side or in your debt. My chief has need of mercenaries from outside our clan. Your exploits have traveled far Freeblade Alberich and that of your companions. If you might be interested in gold and making a friend among the clans. Meet with him in his long house it is less than a days travel. If you need time I can wait here for you to gather your friends. Spoiler welcome to episode two Aridha and Tharra nothing out of the ordinary happens to you all you can roleplay your hunt or simply return to camp. Alberich and Yngvar you should return to camp and tell the woman about the job offer. this is just a prelude to give you some rp time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
