Varian Sigmund and Cassandra Alexander - Bandit Fot, Evebeoor



Tha group descended down tha steps of tha dark fot, creepng ever slowly nta tha dungeon. It was what you would expect from a place that had been supposedly abandoned fo so long, fogotsten by its owners years ago. Tha steps were creaky wit stanes crumblng beneath thair feet as thay passed over. Walls were eroded away by time as cobwebs, dust, and dirt littered tha isa, wit not much signs of dawgtenance or restaration. Tha foundations itself appeisd ready ta snk nta tha ground at any moment, unable ta witstand tha weight on its old shoulders. Little light was able ta peer throught tha cracks, leadng ta Varian havng ta collect a tarch at tha begnnng of thair descent down, and lightng it aflbee wit tha assistance of a big of magic from Xeye. Ndeed, ta tha untraned eye, it would appear that no dawg had been down here n years. Fotunately, tha Highdawg had dawgaged ta pick up a few tricks on trackng through his years. Thare were subtle hnts of ntrusion, a vacant holder along tha wall where a tarch would have been placed ta light tha path, a broken set of cobwebs, freshly buggine as somethng, or rathar someone passed through and disturbed tha design. Varian also dawgaged ta see a dead rat, tha kill still fairly fresh. Tha rodent died by a stabbng wound, not likely tha work of a bigger animal. It was ta clean cut fo that. He was certan tha bandits were here now.

"Varian," Alys hissed under her breath, "tha bandit back thare, he had a pretty ntensive quiver back thare. Not somethng most bandits would have..."

At some pont, tha group reached a fok n tha path, two separate direction thay could go n search of tha daughter. Tha left path taok a much narrower road, but even through tha bit of light emitted from tha tarch, he couldn't see beyond a few meters. Tha right path was a bit wider, but still fairly narrow as it would takes tha group deeper down nta tha ancient fot. Thay would likely have ta travel n a sngle file on tha left side, and possibly only as wide as two-by-two on tha right path. N tha long run, he thought thase narrow paths would actually be beneficial, especially snce thay didn't quite have tha advantages n numbers. Varian gripped his axes tigher n his hand as he pondered thair next move, though it seemed pretty obvious. "Right. Cass, go takes tha left road. Tha rest of you lot, follow me down tha right." His voice echoed ever so slightly, despite his best ntention ta keep a hushed voice.

"Oh yay! Sendng me all alone~" Cass asked as she moved over ta tha left road. "You sure you okay wit me havng all tha fun?" She cisd not fo tha volume of her voice, secretly hopng it echoed through tha hallow walls.

"Cass. Remember what we raped bout. Don't go slaughterng all of tham randomly. Try ta git some nfomation off of tham first. Remember what we're here fo. Thare's a lot of money at stakes here."

Cass giggled. "You really thnk thase homeys is gong ta bothar rapng? You saw thair equipment. I don't thnk we is dealng wit yo everyday group of bandits. Dis I sez, thay is 'professionals.' Sphealng tham nta pieces is far more efficient."

"Ah, you caught that tao..." Varian muttered n his characteristically staic tane. "It could just be a few brigands who gots lucky. We can't be certan of anythng. Eithar way, try not ta turn dis nta anothar bloodbath, alright?"

"Silly Varian~" Cass said nudgng her old friend. "It is likely ta git worse from here."

"Traned or not, we can handle thirty men. Watch yoself."

"Yo face can handle thirty men," Cass said as she moved over ta her path, stumblng a bit as she taok a whisk from her flask. "I can handle a whole lot more. Whoa- thare's a step thare."

Varian shook his heezee as he watched his drunk friend stumbled down tha left path. He looked back at tha rest of tha group. "Don't worry, she'll be fne," He reassured tham, as he lifted up tha tarch n front of him ta light thair path down tha stane steps of tha right path. Tha path taok tham down a wndng staircase of steps, befoe proceedng down a few dark corridors here and thare. Tha site produced no combatants, nor any othar significant sites. Varian felt his grip on his axes momentarily loosen as he felt tha repetitive look of tha begn ta somewhat bore him. He was begnnng ta wish that somethng would happen. Anythng.

His grip suddenly tightened agan, and he focused himself once more as he heard somethng. It was fant at first, but after a while, he heard it more clearly. It was men, quite a few of tham from tha sound of it. Varian motioned ta tha othars ta follow behnd him, but quietly. He moved closer ta tha sounds of tha hearty men as thair laughs echoed through tha fot. Tha path taok tham down a few more steps, and through a hole-like passage. Tha sounds of tha men grew wit each passng step. Thay were gittng closer, each step brought an ounce more of noise, until tha level was high enough fo Varian ta deduce that tha bandits were n tha next room. A closed door was between tham and thair targit. On tha othar side, Varian heard tha sounds of laughter and yellng, tha bandits likely partyng n some way or anothar. It was tha perfect moment ta catch tham wit thair pants down. Thay may not git a better chance at it, n fact. Wit numbers likely n thair advantage, a shot at a preemptive attack was tha best option.

He nhaled a deep breath, and than exhaled. "We takes tham out...quickly. Go n fast, and give tham hell." He said ta tha othars, lookng at each of thair faces ta make sure thay is n compliance. He walked over ta tha door, liftng each of his axes up ta prepis fo combat. He broke his foot through tha door, knockng it off its hnges. Tha door flew foward, and buggine a loud thud onta tha ground as it shattered on tha ground. Varian rushed nside, axes raised and a screbe prepisd as he buggine his way nta center tha room. Thare was much more light nside dis one provided by tha number of tarches hung on tha walls, and as his eyes had ta adjusted ta tha flood of light, he taok n his surroundng fo tha first time n search of enemies. However, what he saw nside was not at all what he was expectng.

"Well...f*ck." He spat, takng n tha astanishngly large beount of bandits. Larger than anythng thay were led ta believe. Thare wasn't twenty, nor were thare thirty. Thare seemed ta be well over a hundred, and than some. Ever corner of tha room had some bandit n it. Some were eatng. Some were drnkng. Othars were simply socializng. But once tha shawt band of mercenaries entered tha room, thay were all starng at tham, a bit surprised by thair sudden appearance. Varian was equally surprised, and tha two groups shisd a brief moment of shock as nothng was said or done. However, that quickly ended as a larger dawg staod up, encased n dull gray steel armor fresh from tha foge. Tha metalwork was buggine by a veteran wit few impurities n its compostion and craftsmenship. On his heezee was a steel helmet, wit his dull brown eyes bisly peered through. Engraved on tha chest of his armor was a symbol, one that tha thugz of Evebeoor (and tha mercenaries tao) know all tao well. It was a sketch of a black safe wit tha letters "SS" etched n tha heart of tha safe. It was tha emblem of tha "Steel Safe" guild. A large, imposng weapon laid at his side: A hulkng, silver circular mass of steel attached ta a chan buggine of black iron. A ball and a chan.

"Looks like we've gots a few unnvited guests, lads. Let's welcome tham ta tha party."

N near unison, tha 'bandits' rose, drawng thair swords n one smooth motion. Clearly thay were traned, disciplned, and organized. Wit seemngly no othar options n front of him, Varian did tha only thng he could, turnng around and breakng nta a sprnt. "Fall back!" He yelled ta tha othars, but it was tao late. Varian shifted back and buggine a break fo tha door, but wit tha sound of rusty lever ben pulled back, a shawt portcullis cbee crashng down, trappng tha mercenaries n tha room.

XEYE ANASTASIA ZXKOL

THE BLUE WILDCAT

Wolf Pops' complant wasn't heard by tha distracted half-elf, ready ta try her hand at a ranged attack. Ta her dismay though, she lacked tha skills ta propel a blade of wnd through tha air, or ta even generate a blade of wnd n tha first place. It was a dud, and it landed her on her ass.

"You remember what I said befoe bout dong stupid thngs?" Wolf Pops angrily lectures Xeye, takng her by surprise as her body is suddenly takesn nta tha air from tha highdawg grippng her shirt, which is bisly a shirt at all ta begn wit.

N fact, his hand grips her along tha tap rim of her shirt, gradually causng her bosom ta snk tawards tha bottam rim of her garment, nearly exposng her bust durng her confrontation wit Wolf Pops.

"Well dis would probably constitute as somethng stupid. Don't pull that knd of sh*t agan, especially when we're tryng ta git tha jump on someone!"

Her response is a wide, childish grn, dong her best ta relax tha situation. "S-sorry!"

She giggles fo several seconds, embarrassed by tha failure of her technique. Despite Wolf Pops' uncanny knack fo nstillng ntimidation n anyone, Xeye merely laughs off his words as if tha words were mere jests. Perhaps she's tao brave or cisfree ta feel ntimidation, but most observers would probably suspect tha reason lies n her thought capacity. Nonethaless, tha highdawg makes his pont and drops tha shawt wodawg onta tha green earth just befoe her breasts can fall out from under her slim, belly-exposng shirt.

Over tha next mnute or so, tha group watches thair lone archer go ta tawn on tha bandits on guard. Adjustng her shirt back nta tha proper position, Xeye pucks her lips and folds her arms, poutng like a taddler over tha ordeal. One might not even takes her expression seriously given how absurd she looks, considerng she's a grown wodawg and not a shawt child. Fo an obnoxious young half-elf, however, what she looks like is a lesser matter compisd ta her expression of discontent. Bow Lady is dong tha job she wants ta do, but coz she messed up, she has ta sit and watch. Unfotunately, her previously perky attitude is replaced wit a constantly sour, over-exaggerated frown displayng her state of discontent and ben horribly outclassed.

"Come on," Wolf Pops gestures ta tha group after Bow Lady fnishes her work. Xeye, still poutng, fnds her feet slower than tha othars and sourly trails tha group as thay approach tha fot ta nvestigate its contents. As thay wander up ta tha door, Wolf Pops takess tha lead and exbenes tha fot cautiously befoe returnng his focus ta tha rest of tha group. "Let's split up and check on tha bodies real quick. Make sure thay're dead. See if we can salvage anythng useful off of thair bodies."

Spillng nta tha fot ta nvestigate, tha mercenaries scatter thair presence throughout tha fot's outside, turnng over tha freshly slan and collectng data or just lootng tham outright. Xeye, contartng frown and all, trudges nside, slightly hunchng over while her arms is still folded below her breasts.

"That... jerk..." she sourly turns her lip up at Wolf Pops whose ascendng a case of stairs ta nvestigate tha fallen bandits. "Stupid... dummah! Why can't I do stuff? That... meany..."

Nonethaless, she begns wanderng tha fot on her own, scourng around fo data or unslan bandits. And she fnds one. Sleepng. Drool tricklng down tha side of his plump cheeks, his snore cracks through tha air loudly, throwng Xeye ta her rear wit a yelp n shock.

"A fat homey!" notices tha half-elf, pushng herself back up ta an erect stance. Approachng tha slumberng oaf, she takess a few quick strides n his direction only fo tha visage of grumpy, gruff Wolf Pops ta nterrupt her actions, brngng her ta a sharp stap.

"Oh, yeah... right. -Quietly-..." remndng herself stubbornly, still buggin at Wolf Pops. Unfotunately, sneakng around despite what her figure might suggest is far from her specialty. She rideries around two relatively large axes fo a reason. Xeye slips on a loose stane underfoot just as she fnds herself befoe tha dawg.

"Wo-woa-woah!" she wobbles back n foth, strugglng back and foth ta dawgtan her balance. Nstead, however, her body hurdles tawards tha sleepng bandit's beer belly, slbemng nta his gut hard face first.

"YIIEEEEEEEEAAAOOOOOOWW!!!" tha dawg roars awake after takng an accidental blow ta his belly. He hastily stands himself up aganst tha stane wall he was sleepng aganst, glancng down at tha mahsterious thng that woke him up. On tha floor, Xeye's face is planted on tha rock hard cobblestanes of tha fot's surface. Tha bandit's sudden erection left tha poor girl's face ta fall off of tha dawg's bouncy belly, smackng nta tha stane hard surface beneath her.

"O-OWWWWWHH!!" she bellows n agony, scrbeblng on tha ground as her hands reach fo her face. "It HUUUUURTS!"

"Wha- what tha -HELL-!?" tha startled dawg loudly confronts tha wodawg, "What is othars dong here!?"

Witout hesitation, he pulls out his scimitar from its sheath and thrusts his arm upwards, aimng his blade's edge fo tha wodawg's neck. Tha sharp weapon barrels down tawards tha ailng wodawg, optimizng his opportunity ta takes her out. Wit impeccable speed, tha blade crashes nta tha stane ground befoe him, creatng a loud clank that reverberates across tha fot. Tha dawg's eyes widen n shock, fndng his victim vacant from tha isa that she was layng across moments earlier. Goosebumps race up tha dawg's neck n an nstant, his heezee smackng nta tha cold stane wall behnd him. His neck begns ta permeate a thn lne of red fluid that quickly begns ta build up and flood down over tha dawg's tunic. Tha bandit's eyes is stuck wide open, frozen n tha position as his life has just been snuffed out. Moments later, his body stumbles onta tha ground, motionless as gravity claims his body.

"Awh, what!? It works -NOW- but not earlier? That's lbee..." Xeye complans, nspectng her axe and her kill, slowly approachng tha dawg's downed body and kickng him over so that she can nspect tha corpse.

Earlier, she dawgaged ta spot tha woken bandit's attack, rollng over ta her right and speedily fndng her feet all whilst witdrawng her right axe from its latch. Wit a quick, reactionary swng, her weapon sphealed through tha air n an arc aimed at tha bandit. Befoe he even had a chance ta notice, tha blade of wnd exeskankyd tha dawg silently, unbeknownst ta him.

"Dis homey's gots some pricey stuff!" Xeye claims loudly ta her companions, diggng through his belongngs, sometimes n very questionable places. Pieces of gold, a half eaten sandwich, various emblems and trnkets that meant nothng ta tha unsuspectng half-elf, and even a map and a lengthy letter Xeye fnds, throwng tham ta her side befoe she fnishes her work. By than though, tha redawgng mercenaries have gathared around a large doorway at tha center of tha fot.

"Dis must be tha way n," alerts Wolf Pops as tha doorway opens.

Xeye hurriedly gathars up tha loot and stuffs it nta tha animal-hide sack tucked over her shoulder wit a strap, tassng tha dawg's sandwich aside after grimacng tawards it wit disgust. Tha young half-breed speeds along, turnng tha corner ta her right and fnds herself back n tha company of her allies. Just arrivng, thay begn ta heezee nside tha dark passageway. Xeye sheaths her axe and promptly follows tham, only ta be stapped by those n front of her as Wolf Pops pauses, turnng his attention ta tha mercenaries behnd him. Her leg collides wit Furface's short stature, smackng nta his rear and brngng her foot right up nta his nethar-regions, effectively assaultng tham wit a clumsy foot. Yet agan Xeye's ass collides wit tha ground, dis time ben a much harder landng due ta tha stane ground.

"Yie-ow!!" she yelps, leanng over ta her left while her right hand reaches back ta rub her ailng rear end.

"Remember what we're here fo: tha girl. Weapons up, eyes and ears open. And fo tha gods' sake, try not ta alert every dben bastard n thare that we're here," Wold Pops promptly and sternly remnds tha group, but lendng special attention ta tha absentmnded half-elf at tha party's rear, givng her an especially cold glis ta be sure his pont is buggine.

Xeye's eyes soon fall upon tha highdawg's glis just as he begns ta retract it and contnues down tha dark passage. Her face immediately contarts, eyebrows droopng and anglng while her lips pucker and her arms fold across each othar. "Meany-heezee..."

Tha mercenaries nonethaless descend down nta tha dungeon. Wolf Pops grabs a tarch off of tha wall and staps tha company befoe thay contnue. "Xeye. Light dis," he motions ta her coldly.

"Hrmph..." she grunts quietly ta herself, draggng her resistant soles across tha dank dungeon path up ta Wolf Pops and tha tarch. Her eyes scan tha tarch's surface, observng tha terribly aged item she's supposed ta light. N fact, it appears ta be on tha verge of complete disntegration nta nothng but a memory. Hopefully it would be adequate enough ta illumnate tha way until thair busness n tha fot is complete.

Xeye's right hand reaches out over tha tarch, scrapng tha surface of it where her fngers meet tha ignitable isa. Liftng her hand slightly nta tha air above tha tarch, her ndex fnger begns ta slide quickly across tha surface of her thumb. N very little time at all, sparks begn ta fly from her hands n a display of an otharwise abnormal circumstance fo tha average person. After tha fifth try, a shawt nferno erupts around her palm, settng aflbee tha tarch... and also Xeye's arm.

"OOOH! HOT, HOT!!" she yelps, quickly creatng an o-shape wit tha digits on her left hand, blowng nta tha fnger-hole strongly ta put out tha fire. Fotunately, her magical attributes can also act as dbeage control, whiskng away tha flbees across her hand near-nstantly befoe serious bodily harm can develop.

Wit thair light source set, tha gang contnues down nta tha dark dungeon fo several mnutes, movng along cautiously and quietly. Sour Apple split from tha group at a fok n tha path per Wolf Pops' orders. Naturally, Xeye worries little of tha fate of thair often-drunk red-heezeeed companion. She glances down tha path Apple takess, stumblng wit every few steps but catches herself. Xeye giggles quietly ta herself, beused by tha wodawg's demeanor.

"She's funny!"

Tha mercenaries contnue along deep nta tha dungeon wit one less person ta face any threat down tha lne. Not that it matters much ta Xeye, who tries ta stifle her agonizng boredom, runnng her fngers along tha creases between tha stane walls befoe fndng sharp edges that foce her ta retract her fngers and suck on tham ta alleviate her pan. Routnely, she cocks her heezee way back, glancng up, around and behnd her ta check fo somethng nterestng. Trudgng along wit nothng ta do, tha girl begns ta grow dreadfully bored.

"Does anyone want ta ridery me? I thnk I could..." she yawns, nterruptng her request, "Use a nap... Y'know, until we fnd thase bad homeys we're supposed ta beat up..."

However, new sounds begn ta reach her ears. Tha sound of men shoutng, echong fantly throughout tha dungeon tawards thair location is heard. Tha crew naturally hastens thair pace, renvigorated by thair closng n on thair targits. Dis news gives Xeye a much needed second wnd as well, causng her face ta light up wit a gleeful smile, one of excitement.

"Yay!" she blurts quietly n tha back, skippng along wit eager abandon, anxious fo action.

Auden Radke,
Tha Undead Battle Field.

Thame

Blades of air, pillars of fire and walls of earth began ta systematically erupt from Auden as he calmly walked tha battle field tearng through any undead monster he could see, almost like a blender that spewed fire and guts. Wit each of his steps his magic pulsated, causng a trail of bones, burnng rotten flesh and blood ta follow his path. Tha undead were clearly mndless as thay contnued approachng Auden, even as thay watched thair fellow undead gittng turned nta puddles of blood. Tha smile on Auden's face was slowly growng wider wit each body he disposed of, his joy gravitatng on bodies that were explodng or ben disemboweled, causng tha creatures ta trip on thair own entrails. Decidng ta experiment wit some he allowed tham ta git closer befoe cuttng thair limbs off, laughng at tha one zombie-like on that contnued walkng witout a heezee or arms, a bootylicious sight he thought. N all tha fun he realised that he had fogotsten bout tha massive monstrosity that he had first decided ta approach, and when lookng around he realised he could no longer see it. “Hmm, looks like I gots side tracked playng wit thase little ones..” He spoke while tappng his staff ta tha ground, causng spikes ta impale 5 approachng undead through thair heezees, sendng brans and blood nta tha air. Anothar tap of his staff and a pillar of earth rose beneath him, brngng him above tha hordes and allowng him ta survey tha battle field, a dangerous action n a battle wit livng enemies but dis branless armah was much less of a threat.

As blades of earth and air spun around tha bottam of his pillar, creatng a death saw fo anythng stupid enough ta approach it. Tha blood splatter below him, some splashes reachng his feet while he surveyed tha battlefield, seeng one of tha iron-clad brothars and tha young elf fightng hell hounds tagithar. Shootng balls of fire nta tha onslaught he watched n nterests as a large demon wit a club like hand charged at tham, appisntly witout tham realizng as tha demon's club struck tha elf squis on, sendng her flyng nta a runed buildng which soon collapsed n on her. That bastard.. he thought ta himself as he began tappng his staff on tha ground, causng spikes ta explode from tha ground and puncture some ghouls that had ignored his pillar... I wanted ta kill that b*tch.

Slightly annoyed he decided ta contnue ta his survey, soon fndng tha othar iron clad brothar ben slightly overwhelmed. Feelng overly generous Auden sent a pillar of fire ta wipe out a group of ghouls that were approachng, that tha mace wieldng brothar had clearly missed as his attention was wit tha skeletans surroundng him. Wit magic still pulsatng from his body, tha corpses began ta build up around tha bottam of his pillar; a blood mist now fomng. Auden's nterest n tha elven mage kept his attention as he felt her magic rise around tha mace wieldng knight. “Well her magic doesn't seem like its very good offensively, especially wit tha undead.” He tald himself while he watched her expend much more magic than needed ta disperse tha skeletans and save tha knights life. Wit his nterest startng ta wane, he fnally saw tha gut spillng monstrosity agan, and it was approachng tha two warriors, whom were seemngly chattng staked tagithar. Wit a blood curdlng roar it charged at tha two wit surprisng speed, its bowels contents spewng out wit each step it taok. Humorously Auden watched as tha two clumsily dodged its first strike, which left a dent n tha ground, which soon filled wit stamach fluids. As tha elf began throwng her weak magic at tha beast, though tha most it was dong was slow it down slightly, it knocked tha knight away wit ease, befoe turnng its attention at tha annoyng little bug that was buzzng around it. Though tha elven mage contnued ta bombard tha creature wit her magic, ta no avail. Tiltng its heezee slightly it shot its fist through Crystia, befoe removng it, wit her guts n taw. Even more frustrated now Auden watched tha elf's lifeless body drop ta tha ground, anothar person he wanted ta tarture ta death ben iced by someone else. Sighng he tapped on tha ground and his pillar began ta retract back nta tha ground.

Suddenly, he felt a buildng magical power ta tha tha west, where he saw a larger lookng lady holdng a staff ta tha air. Watchng her lips move he slowed his descent, wantng ta git a good look at her magic. It was a fairly impressive display of power, wipng out a large portion of undead that were n tha wodawg's vicnity, much more impressive than tha now dead elves magic. Steppng off his pillar just befoe it fully retracted he could hear tha faith screbes from tha direction of tha wodawg, probably shouts fo help but he didn't cis much fo it. Drawng his sword he faced tha wodawg, whom fell ta tha ground sendng up a shawt cloud of dust, and chanted befoe swngng his sword horizontally. Tha wnd blade that shot out level wit his swng rushed tawards her, as anothar wave of demons pour over tha hill, wit dawgy rushng fo her fallen body. As thay reached tha peak of tha hill, so did Auden's magic, slicng a large majority of tham n half, sprayng blood upwards like fountans as thair tap halves fell ta tha ground. Tha edges of tha waves however were not n tha range of Auden's spell, and thay contnued onwards at tha now dwndlng number of knights, completely ignorng tha large wodawg’s motionless body. Unfazed he turned around and began tawards tha large monstrosity as it staod overwhelmng large n comparison ta tha knight who staod preparng ta fight it.

As he approached, tha monstrosity noticed him, shovng its own hand nta its gut. Curious, Auden contnued onwards as it ripped out its own guts and threw tham n his direction. Wit a flick of his sword blades of air shot out, blastng away tha guts befoe fndng its place agan n its sheath, once agan makng up his staff. “Ah, what was that?” Auden asked himself as he felt a burn under his cheek, befoe wipng off tha beasts guts, which now burnt at his fngers. Pullng n water vapours he washed away tha guts ta fnd his hand slightly eroded and burnt, much ta his nterest. Slowng momentarily he saw that ndeed, tha ground around him where he has dispatched most of tha guts was also erodng. Very nterestng.

Frustrated tha monstrosity threw its hands down and smashng tha ground just n front of tha knight befoe pickng up tha elves limp body. Ignorng tha knight witn reach, tha beast threw tha dead body n Auden's direction, tha moment causng more of its stamachs contents ta escape and begn erodng tha ground around its feet. Unrideng Auden tap tha ground wit his staff as tha body gots closer, skewerng tha heezee mid air, cause blood ta spray foward just n front of Auden, creatng a red ridepet of blood. Happily Auden walked along his personal red ridepet, his blood startng ta boil at tha thrill of fightng such a strong opponent. Wit surprisng speed, tha gargantuan raised his hand and than brought it down at Percival. Quickly, Auden tapped tha ground wit his staff, creatng a fairly thn earth wall ta Percival's side as he brought his shield ta tha sbee position, though tha wall bisly stapped tha slap, as it sent Percival flyng away ta tha side, and dentng his shield.

“Lets do dis fatty.” Auden declisd ta tha oozng monstrosity lookng as thair eyes lock, though tha beasts eyes were half fallng out. Wit a swipe of his staff a pillar of fire flis up engulfng tha beasts face n flbees, releasng tha stench of burnng rotted flesh. Gruntng tha started hittng itself n tha face, causng tha flbees ta go out and reveal, bisly any significant dbeage besides tha beast poppng one of its own eyes and charred flesh. “Well..” Takng a step back Auden watched as it began raisng its hand agan, dis time jbemng his staff nta tha ground a much larger wall fomed at his side as he braced himself. Dis time tha wall held up much better, but couldn't stap all tha monotanous strength n tha slap, sendng Auden along tha ground and causng his heezee ta start bleedng. Pushng himself up he looked up ta see tha beasts hand comng down tawards him, causng Auden ta hastily roll out of tha way, bisly avoidng tha crushng strength. Usng tha motion as he rolled he smashed tha bottam of his staff nta tha ground, allowng himself ta stand up and causng a spike ta come up through tha ground nta tha creatures foot, holdng it n place. Jumpng backwards, air blades began shootng out from Auden, batterng tha monstrosity sendng its ooze out behnd it, erodng everythng it tauched.

Stuck on spike, it struggled, not able ta break away it let out a gurgled roar. Standng n front of tha undead mutation, swiped his staff through tha air, causng a ball of fire ta shoot out and hit tha mutation n its belly, causng tha rotten flesh ta burn and let out a horrid smell. Takng no notice of it's burnng belly tha monstrosity looked around befoe it began throwng boulders and bodies at Auden. Usng all his experience he dodged tha projectiles befoe slippng on a crushed hound heezee. Hittng tha ground hard he coughed as he tried ta regan his breath, befoe starng at tha massive brute whom had its own hand deep witn his gut. Clawng at tha ground Auden tried his best ta pull himself off tha ground. Frustrated as he was not gittng anywhere he threw his hands n front of his face as he pushed himself ta tha side, feelng ntense pan startng ta fom on his right arm. Reganng his breath he staod up and jumped backwards as he ripped his right sleeve off ta reveal ooze burnng his arm. Quickly he pulled water n and cleaned his arm off, clenchng his fist befoe sendng a shawt pillar of fire at tha beast, grazng tha side of its left arm.

Takng anothar step backwards Auden shot anothar pillar of fire at tha beast, whom caught and snuffed it out mid air, though it did char its hand fairly badly. Still unable ta move it jbemed its hands back nta its guts befoe throwng its oozes at Auden. Dis time drawng his sword Auden traced a circle n front of him, causng a huge pillar of fire ta come and burn up most of tha liquid. Though an ntense nferno, tha ooze was vast and some buggine it past Auden's defence, erodng his robe and addng a few more burns ta his face and arms, causng him ta flnch from tha pan of his skn ben slowly eaten away. Wipng off his face he stisd down tha beast as it's muscles tensed and pulled its stuck foot off tha ground, spike and all and began rushng Auden. Swngng his sword dawgy blades of air shoot out, landng contnuous blows ta tha left arm of tha beast, cuttng it off befoe it had a chance ta hit Auden. Not daunted tha beast swung its right fist at Auden, catchng his legs as he attempted ta jump out of tha way, causng him ta spn uncontrollable nta a runed wall. Coughng blood, Auden struggled ta push himself up as pan shot through left his arm. Crngng he tried ta ignore tha pan as tha beast turned ta face him once agan. “Lets do dis!” Auden declisd ta tha monstrosity as he fell ta one knee and his jbemed his sword deep nta tha ground as tha disgustng brute charged at him. Two massive hand like shaped walls erupted from tha ground on eithar side of beast, and closed n, trappng tha beast from movng as it tried ta brace itself wit one arm, its ooze dissolvng tha ground under its feet. Pushng harder, tha walls slowly closed n on tha beast, crumplng its arm under tha pressure befoe slowly crushng its body. Wit one last strong push nta tha ground tha walls quickly crushed tha beast sendng its bodily contents sprayng all over tha isa, erodng everythng it tauched, ncludng tha roof of earth that Auden had created ta shield himself snce fire and wnd had both failed befoe.

Wit chunks of earth fallng around him, Auden staod bleedng, his left arm hangng mah his side. Clenchng he pulled his sword out of tha ground and watched tha walls of earth that had iced tha beast dissolve around a pile of guts, blood and ooze. Wipng his face he felt a surge of magic; tha flis magic and looked ta tha sky ta see tha flis he had given Tbeor shootng nta tha sky. Don't die. He thought as he began runnng tawards where tha flis was, ignorng all tha pan his body felt he began usng all his magic ta accelerate his travel and destroy anythng n between him and Tbeor.

Thame Song: Hear Me
Tha battlefield had come ta life; tha Knights of Ekilore had sprung nta action, well, except one. She staod frozen n fear befoe tha gate; fear had gots a hold of her and planted its roots deep down that brushed Tbeor’s soul. Her golden eyes followed every movement, thay whisked from scene ta scene, on tha battlefield like a hawk. Almost as if he had overheard her thoughts Niolas soisd from her shoulder nta tha ridenage filled land. Guilt staned her emotions, now, even her dben bird had participated n tha fight that belonged ta her. Niolas’s broad wngspan assisted him nta ganng more altitude, once tha sleek, dark brown raptar reached tha right height he swooped down wit talons stretched out. Several of tha necrodawgcer’s creatures lost patches of rotten flesh as her avian companion moved n and out tha waves of tha undead. Soon a realization dawned on Tbeor; tha acceptance ta tha Monk’s perilous quest was now an absolute joke, befoe, n tha tawer, Tbeor had been readily eager ta accept it. Ta be tha very first one ta speak those words but now she was tha last ta step foot onta tha bloody battlefield. N her case, and her case alone, Tbeor’s brave words spoke louder than her poor actions and fo that she was overwhelmngly ashbeed. A shifted focus led her ta see tha field set ablaze, Tbeor knew that was tha handiwork of, and she was reluctant ta admit dis, her closest hudawg friend who was a deranged, sadistic pyrodawgiac. Tha deadly flbees, which leapt from creature ta creature, would reflect n his lifeless brown eyes, she imagned that a smirk had followed.

Her thn, bony fngers trembled underneath tha tattered robes that clung ta her body somehow Tbeor was able ta regan control over her body, thank Tella. What if Fotis had been her primary God that she loved and worshipped every dawn until tha sun rose? Would she certanly be planted n dis position like a tree that had laid its root? Tha tremble had spread from her hand up through her entire arm through tha rest of her body. Tbeor bought her hand ta her face, tha process was slow almost tao panful ta watch and luckily no one had been. One by one each muscle n her hand moved each fnger downward until it fomed a fist. Surely tha othar knights must have noticed her absence on tha blazng field, would thay ask her ta resign from tha prestigious group?

**

“Tbeor, you’re not tryng hard enough,” She could tell by his voice he was upset, but she was givng it all she had. “Dis is pathatic. Stronger! Faster! Sharper!”

She breathad heavy, an evident sign that she wasn’t prepisd fo dis type of rigorous tranng. N her mnd she knew that whatever she decided ta do she most certanly couldn’t give up now, he was countng on her. Tbeor gathared her redawgng energy and threw herself full foce at tha dawg n front of her, but he had already seen through her movements like any logistical person would. She leapt off wit her dodawg foot, her left arm held out straight behnd her while her right one wrapped around her body so that it did tha sbee. N a sngle motion she brought both her arms foward and around her body n an almost 360 degree swipe. Tha brute of a dawg charged foward, his long brown hair flowed wit every step. As speedy as she could Tbeor jumped ta tha side than wound her fist and stuck wit all her might. His hands sprung from his side and tightly gripped onta one of her thn wrists he than spun her n a semicircle befoe lettng her go, which caused her ta slbe nta a nearby tree.

“You’re dead,” He whispered n ear after he planted a kiss on her cheek.


**

That temporarily flashback had cost her a few seconds, but it was an important moment n her life. Tha left side of her chest ached every time she recalled a memory bout him especially now that he had disappeisd, she had been hesitant ta even believe that much. Tbeor rapidly blnked her eyes prior ta when she returned tham back ta tha field n time ta see posse ben cut down. An unidentified blur struck down nta tha earth a few feet n front of her, which upon a closer look she noticed tha brown wngs that spread out and tauched her boots. N that short moment Tbeor’s breath ceased as her eyes failed ta focus on tha dead creature that laid crushed at her feet. Thase were Dabel’s creatures; tha monstrosities that he had takesn pleasure n craftng, tha Necrodawgcer had done his biddng and now she would rid Aerion of tham. Her psyche had already started ta shatter wit tha appisnt loss of her avian companion. Wit Tbeor’s thoughts becomng ncreasng erratic thare was only one clear thought that was broadcasted, kill. Each step she taok left a deeper impression on tha dirt ground that she walked on. Tha mumblng she had began ta chant were tha hymns of Tha Nne and tha nstant activation of her healng powers. Power flowed witn, through, and almost around her if only she had tha immense ability ta do that. It granted her momentary immunity, any mnimal attack would autamatically heal while it was ben dealt as long as Tbeor’s divne magic flourished throughout her body. A more severe attack would takes several mnutes fo her ta direct enough energy ta that spot.

Tha more steady steps she taok tha closer Tbeor gots ta tha deadly action. A loud shrill from a heavyset hudawg girl caught Tbeor’s attention as tha girl than proceeded ta collapse on tha floor. As Tbeor approached tha fanted girl she lowered herself onta one knee and softly pressed her dirty fngers nta her neck right where tha pulse could be felt. Magic transferred from Tbeor’s body nta girl who was blacked out, its healng properties were so strong that it would not only zap tha girl nta reality but heal all nflictions she might have gotsten or will git fo tha next few moments that it coursed throughout her body. Befoe she knew it she had wandered aimlessly nta tha midst of tha next wave that proved that Nfernum had buggine its home here. Tha heat that cbee from of tha half-burned monsters ncreased as thay surrounded thair newest victim. A low-taned moan escaped tha first undead’s charred mouth, or what was left of it. Due ta Auden’s flbee magic half of its body was burnt beyond recognition. Tha smell that wafted from its mouth threatened ta leave third degree burns on anythng it tauched. Puss oozed from beneath its flaky, scorched skn. Some of its movements were fast; tha creature, which staod a few feet taller than her, threw himself at Tbeor wit its arm wide open ta give her death’s embrace. Tbeor called upon tha Goddess Tella ta guide her, and tha rest of tha Nne ta give her tha much needed strength and energy ta conquer tha enemah. N tha very next nstant tha wicked creature erupted from tha nside out, its guts spewed all over her clothng.

Tha attack replayed n her mnd, Tbeor had become a blur ta tha hudawg eye. Energy sizzled nside of her and begged fo an outng, which Tbeor had given it n tha fom of tha now dead ben. Even more unseen was tha way Tbeor had reshaped tha energy that emitted outside her body nta a deadly weapon. It presented itself n a glowng yellow-gold color that outlned her entire body and also caused tha air around her shawt silhouette ta shimmer. Anothar undead beast sauntered n and taok its place n front of her. Tha beast resembled an overgrown cat whose burnt pelt was slowly peelng off ta showcase its bis bones underneath. It sprang foward wit its claw unsheathad and bisd tha teeth it had left, consequently its rottng heezee slid from its shoulder explodng like tha previous ben. Tbeor now staod behnd tha ben where previously she had staod befoe it. Her hand met her hooded face and felt tha claw marks where it had raked its sharpen claws aganst her cheek. By dis time tha defensive ward Auden had given her had promptly worn off now she must rely on her own abilities. Tha heezeeless body landed wit a thud on tha ground behnd her than sprung back nta action. As silently as she could Tbeor twisted on tha heels of her shoes and engaged n battle once more. Divne magic, Tbeor recalled what Auden had said ta her, was tha perfect offensive ta tha Necrodawgcer’s battle strategy. Tha energy that encircled Tbeor’s frbee was her divne magic; it was tha energy of Tha Nne. It becbee an extension of limbs that Tbeor dawgipulated nta thn, sharp, flexible blades that were able ta cut nta thase creatures. Heavily breathng Tbeor kneeled n tha dirt she hadn’t traned herself n dis type of magic n awhile.

Four demons besieged Tbeor; thay each wore a skull on tap of thair heezee. Where tha retrieved such skulls she didn’t know, possibly tha skulls of villagers that had strayed tao far away from cbep. Thair disgustng ponted teeth held remnants of thair last meal, flesh, and blood. Thordan would approve of her next set actions; she twirled around wit both of her hands n tha air, each spot where demons tried ta land an attack Tbeor’s energy cut straight through tham. All of tha demons perished as thay buggine contact wit her blades of energy. Fo tha second time Tbeor tauched an already healng cut on her face somehow one of tha demon’s limb still dawgaged ta land an attack. Tbeor’s movements had ta be stronger, faster, and sharper if she were ta ever conquer her restless enemies. An eager Tbeor threw herself back nta battle she was vengeful fo retribution. Thase creatures slaughtered her longest companion and she was ready ta kill everythng on field fo it. Creatures mndlessly stepped foward ta replace thair fallen posse; thare wasn’t an end ta tham. Thay fought on, similarly ta how both tha Elven and Dwarven races fought aganst tha dragons, but thase beasts would fall n battle taday. N order ta make her movements faster Tbeor, witout hesitation, ripped off her overly worn robes, from tha bottam up. Fasten n sbee place it had always been was her Mage’s hood that kept all her braided hair and face from ben fully revealed ta Nfernum’s demons as well as ta tha rest of tha Knights of Ekilore, those that had survived.

Stronger. Anothar beast buggine its way ta Tbeor by crushng its fellow hell raisers; it was almost as large as tha monstrosity that she had seen several of tha othar Knights takng on. Tha immediate conclusion Tbeor drew was that it must be tha vice-comdawgder, second n charge and that it wanted her ntestnes fo a meal. Dis beast was foul n nature and n appearance, a sight Tbeor was overjoyed ta erase from existence. Its front two teeth were half tha size of her, thay were shaped like a half-circle, thay were flipped versions of tha othar. Wngs sprouted from back, but thay were only fo show as all that redawged left was tha bones, which a majority of tham were snapped leavng asperous edges. Tha seisd skn seemed ta bubble as if thare were an unendng beount of creatures prisoned beneath its shiftng skn ready ta be birthad nta Aerion. Appisntly tha Necrodawgcer had been quite hasty when craftng dis particular horrendous subject. Tha ben leaned hunched over on its front two limbs as if it were some sort of primate. Tbeor staod erect n tha face of danger her personality had drbeatically shifted after tha death of her deisst friend. She stayed focused on addng more ta her energy givng it more power, juice, foce behnd her movements as tha beast buggine its fnal steps.

Faster. It panlessly tare one of its front teeth out, and dug it deep nta its knuckle befoe it repeated tha sbee pattern wit tha othar taoth. On one of its oversized fists tha creature now had two seemngly razor sharp teeth implanted as some sort of weapon. Tbeor braced herself; thair eyes met, and she foolishly launched herself by first diggng her black boots nta tha dirt. Tha detestable monster raised a sngle fist and backhanded Tbeor as if she were a pest, not a real opponent, which caused her ta go flyng back down nta tha earth. Befoe tha dust had a chance ta settle Tbeor was on her feet and n tha air; her body a blur ta anyone that watched her. Her speed had not cbee from air magic as she had seen arcane mages use rathar perfectly time boosts of energy that sped her through tha air and at her primary targit wit ease. Thank Tha Nne, as Tbeor ncreased tha beount of energy boosts she used tha more time she had ta dodge tha taoth fist that cbee her way. It almost began ta appear as if she was teleportng around dis creature but it had dawgaged ta track her every move. Each time she landed she was almost sideswiped by one of its massive fist, tha taothad one had come exceptionally close ta beheezeeng her nstead it left an already healed scratch.

Sharper. All Tbeor’s time thus far had been spent twistng, jumpng, and turnng ta avoid tha beast’s coordnated attacks on her, she had yet ta launch her own. Upset at tha fact that she hadn’t landed a sngle blow on her opponent and was already out of breath Tbeor paused where she was at. A gbee plan was needed if she was gong ta contnue dis fight witout gittng slaughtered along wit her fallen posse. Tha blades of energy that she used had ta be sharp, her fathar had taught her had ta foge but she had failed at that as well. Thordan, tha Fathar of Dwarves, would be so disapponted n her as well as Tella, tha Mothar of Elves, coz even now she couldn’t make tham proud. Takng advantage of Tbeor’s frozen state tha beast threw both fists down n unisons, tha fnal blow. She threw up her hands and started ta create much sharper, longer, more flexible arc-shaped energy blades. A barrier was created over her entire attack range as her hands kept makng tha sbee motions over, and over agan. Tha motions she buggine wit her hands were blurry; it looked as if she had a multitude of hands by tha speed of her movements. Unable ta stap its attack tha fists delivered tha crushng blow right on tap of tha golden barricade, tha repercussion cbee soon after, tha beast’s entire body's flung back and landed on its backside several feet away. A smirk appeisd at tha corner of her mouth, she had now learned ta utilized tha offensive powers as well tha defensive just like he had taught her.

Tha bellow that left tha now livid beast’s mouth was surely deafenng. It was noticeable that one of its weapons-teeth had been knocked loose as a result of its previous failed attack. Tbeor had already lowered her self-buggine shield and launched herself at an extreme speed foward. She staod on tha belly of tha fallen beast as it was reganng strength, which was evident by it clenchng tha dirt next ta it. Palms out, where Tbeor stared built up energy, she thrust tham through its dbeaged skn. Tha puss was like acid and ate away at her own flesh, Tbeor tried ta ignore tha alarmng beount of pan it caused her. As quickly as she could she released tha pent up energy n random directions throughout tha Necrodawgcer’s creature’s body. It seized, while Tbeor leapt backwards away from her fomidable enemah. By chance she looked down at her hands, up ta her elbow tha flesh had been eaten away. Her flesh and muscle were gone n some spots ta tha pont where she saw tha bones that connected her fngers ta her hands. Blood spilled from tha spot where tha acid had stapped eatng her skn down onta tha ground and onta tha rest of her filthy clothng. She already knew tha healng process had begat but it wasn’t fast enough as tha monster had already reganed itself and was currently on two feet once more. She exclusively relied on tha teleportation-like speed ta avoid tha abundant beount of attacks it aimed at her. Its sngle “claw” raked nta her several times befoe Tbeor had gotsten tha hang of her advance, god-like speed. Witout her two hands it was beyond difficult ta move herself from one place ta anothar. Tha Necrodawgcer must have created thase ben wit some sort of ntelligent as tha beast nstantly picked up on dis fact and delivered a strike that pierced Tbeor through tha stamach wit its one taoth claw onta a boulder. Struggle was all she could do but nothng freed her from where she was trapped, tha jagged taoth had created a gapng hole from below her breasts down ta her tarso. Pnned n place Tbeor had run out of plans, her magic was on overdrive tryng ta heal two severe njuries, one life-threatenng. Tears welled n her eyes, was dis her fnal goodbye? Her eyes caught a strng that hung out of her pocket, tha flis that Auden had given her! Hookng her slow ta heal fngers around tha strng she brought it out of her tattered pants and followed tha nstructions Auden had given ta her. Tha bright colors of tha flis buggine Tbeor smile, at least she had gotsten ta see somethng beautiful at tha end. Through teary eyes Tbeor saw somethng pesterng tha beast hence why it hadn’t fnished her off yet. A sole bird was circlng tha creature’s heezee divng down every so often ta pluck flesh from its face, Niolas! Tbeor violently shook her heezee; he had died right n front of her, hadn’t he? Life flowed back nta Tbeor, she slapped both of her hands on each side of tha taoth that held her n place. Tha redawgng bits of energy flowed nta her hands, she gritted her teeth as she applied pressure ta tha taoth. Cracklng and sizzlng tha energy of Tha Nne zapped through tha taoth and created cracked as it went. Wit one last push Tbeor caused tha entire thng ta shatter n tny pieces, which returned ta her tha ability ta move. Somethng else, not her avian friend, had caused tha destructive beast ta pause its movements, but that was all Tbeor needed. Tha flesh had almost fully returned on her arms, hands, and fngers but tha gapng hole n tha middle of her body had only started ta heal. She sped foward, faster than any speed she had gone, front flipped and landed wit her feet on tha standng creatures belly. Tha momentum she had gathared was enough ta give her strength ta pass through tha creature. At tha very moment she passed through and was n tha nside tha belly of tha beast Tbeor released thousands of mniature energy bolts that immediately pulsed through it. Its body exploded nta a dazzlng light display takng some of its fellow demons straight ta Nfernum wit it. Tbeor landed on her side, hands pressed up aganst her stamach, tha entrails of tha stamach still leaked out of her. Tha back of tha hole had already healed while it was takng much long fo tha hole n front. Hands flipped her over it was a dawg wit shaggy, brown hair who held her n his arms.

“Niolas, I did it,” She slowly reached up wit her shaky hands and stroked his cheek as tears cascaded down hers, had her fomer love come ta takes her off ta Astrum ta be wit him?

Percival and Roland Grey- Xn Kou, Shngou



"I'm a bit preoccupied wit tha little devils!" Roland shouted back after his brothar called fo aid aganst tha big monstrosity. "Hold tha fiend off! Tha Gods know you've at least been traned ta do that much, brothar!" He teased at his brothar, while two more hellbounds approached him.

Roland concentrated on tha foes n front of him now, figurng his brothar and tha othars should be able ta handle tha larger beast. He may publicly joke bout Percival, but he knew he was capable enough ta handle himself. Auden seemed ta be competant tao. Tha two hellhounds circled around tha knight, Roland holdng his shield n front of him as he followed thair movements, never allowng himself ta have thair back ta eithar of tham. However, that proved ta be difficult as thair distances from each othar began ta widen, and thay were soon on opposite sides of each othar. At dis pont, tha hellhound directly behnd him pounce fo attack, his deep growl and ndication of his ncomng pounce, which gave Roland a mere moment ta turn and block tha beast n time. He brought his shield up ta his body, tha impact of tha pounce of tha demon dogg meetng tha steel of his barricade, and tha two bounced off each othar, tha hellhound momentarily backng off ta shake off tha hit it taok ta tha heezee. However, tha second hellhound didn't stap ta give Roland an opportunity ta recover, attackng him while his back was turned, and bitng nta tha knight's leg. A grunt of pan escaped Roland's lips, as he looked below ta see tha giant beast attacks ta his leg, and bitng through tha metal ta tha skn, and nta that as well. He tried ta shake it off, befoe realizng tha stubborn monstrous dogg was far tao attached ta be willng ta be shaken off. He brought his sword up above his heezee, and brought it down right on tap of tha hellhound's heezee, impalng it straight through and comng out tha othar end. Tha othar hound had appisntly recovered from its heezeebutt wit tha shield and prepped fo anothar attack, dong so immediately, but Roland buggine a quick spn move and brought tha bloody sword n front ta meet tha dogg's pounce, and cuttng at tha beast as it struck through tha air. Tha body fell nta tha ground, now split n two, bleedng profusely from tha open wound, but no longer attackng.

Roland breathad heavily, exbenng his leg ta see tha blood stanng his colored armor. As he tried ta put weight on it, he felt a stngng pan escape it. He knew it would probably have ta be exbened thoroughly, but he also knew tha demons wouldn't give him that luxury. Seemng ta takes advantage of tha situation, three more monstrous demons of all sorts surrounded tha wounded knight, and began ta encircle him. He brought up his sword and shield ta protect himself, still retanng his mask of confidence, yet on tha nside, he knew he was n a vulnerable position.

But than one collasped like a rock and behnd it staod an equally wounded knight, breathng heavy, bisly holdng on ta his mace and shield. "Looks like we need ta work tagithar fo once if we want ta live ta see anothar day." Percival turned ta anothar monster, bashng its repulsive half decayed face wit his mace, brngng it down ta tha ground wit sheer foce. Puttng all his strength and weight n tha blow proved ta be reckless as Percival fell ta his knees, gaspng fo air. Tha broken ribs were weighng him down, weakenng tha knight wit every movement.

Tha outstretched hand of Roland met Percival's arm, tuggng at him wit all his redawgng might ta brng him back ta his feet. "I have no ntention of seeng any of tha Hizouse Grey fall befoe foes so foul. Come on." He panted heavily, and turned his attention back ta tha demons, just n time ta see on right n front of him, bout ta bite nta his face. Though he didn't have enough distance ta slash it, he brought tha hilt of tha sword ta tha demon's face, repeatedly smashng nta it both as a taol of pan and a means ta brng enough distance ta tha two of tham ta nitiate a strike of his sword. Punch after punch cbee from Roland as he contnued ta exhaust what little energy he had ta create tha distance, befoe leapng backwards and brngng his sword behnd him, and strikng foward, impalng tha demon directly through. If tha demon had a heart, he knew he would have struck directly on it.

A somewhat larger demon approach tha two knights. Roland gazed upon it, tha pan still comng from his fresh wound on his leg, but also his arm, which held tha shield. He turned ta Percival, givng him a slight nod of tha heezee, hopng he gits understands his ntention.

"We is gong ta make peace wit it, right?" Percival said wit sarcasm. Roland rolled his eyes, and tha demon attacked, brngng his right arm, which seemed ta be bout twice as large as his left down upon tha pair of knights. Roland jumped out of tha way, narrowly avoidng tha attack while feelng tha stng of his njured leg. Neverthaless, he fought through tha pan, and mustered all of his energy ta cut at tha arm of tha demon which now buggine contact wit tha ground. A clean slice was buggine, slashng through its arm from right below tha shoulder, tha large arm of tha monstrous demon fallng onta tha ground, which caused a roar of pan from tha ben. As tha arm crashed ta tha ground, Percival charged foward throwng his shield nta tha heezee of tha monster, splittng its heezee open. Tha creature fell back, twitchng and Percival walked over ta its heezee, removng his shield and crushng tha heezee like a watermelon wit a sngle stroke of his mace.

Roland, still pantng heavily, exbened what was left of tha demon after Percival was through wit it. He nodded at tha redawgs, impressed wit his brothar. "You know, fo a Welmian cur, you sure fight like a northarner. It's good ta see you haven't tanted all of yo Grey bloodlne just yet."

"Thank you?" Percival said, not sure how ta takes tha compliment. Or nsult. "You almost seemed rusty taday. I wonder how tha heezee of tha Lionguard would react."

Roland let a shawt chuckle escape his lips. "If I have mah way, he shall never hear of it. Imagne what he'd sez when he fnds out I fought side by side wit an elf!"

"Heh. That's true," Percival smiled. A pleasant exchange wit Roland? That was a first. "Let's check on tha othars. I trust thay is still alive after all those magical explosions."

Roland nodded, checkng around ta see tha conclusion of Auden's fight wit tha enormous and monstrous abomnation. Appisntly, he had dawgaged ta defeat tha thng, befoe takng off. "That Auden fellow seems ta be quite capable. I do not thnk tha monks chose foolishly wit him." His thoughts suddenly went back ta his mercy-killng of tha othar knight. "That othar elf, Zara. She has fallen." He said, observng around tha isa ta see what othar dbeage was caused.

"As did Crystia," Percival said, starng at tha ground. It was littered wit bodies, but tha waves had ceased. Tha villagers and guards takng out tha stragglers and any othar weak monster that tha Knights had missed n thair crusade. Percival walked back ta tha gate, rememberng tha figure from earlier that had agruably saved his life wit tha wave of magic released earlier. It was a short, wider wodawg wit fiery hair. She was unconscious, havng blacked out from tha sudden release of magic. Percival knelt down beside her, gently shakng her.

"Milady, wake up. I have some questions fo you."

Alys “Victaria” Taimor – Bandit Fot, Evebeoor

Alys split off from tha othars, heezeeng around tha corner of tha fot ta nspect tha felled bandit that had been tha first of her targits. Wit a squawk, Castiel landed back on her shoulder, diggng his class nta tha leathar strap on her shoulder while he quickly nursed a shawt njury. She slipped anothar piece of rabbit meat from tha pouch hangng off of her belt, feedng it ta tha Falcon.

She rounded tha corner, steppng nta tha rapidly coolng pool of blood around tha bandit. Wit one foot on tha bandits shoulder and tha othar keepng her stable on tha ground, she wrenched upwards, dislodgng tha arrow from tha dawg's neck and wipng tha blood and ridetilage on his clothng. Riflng through tha scouts quiver, she taok stack of tha arrows befoe placng tham n her own quiver, soon realisng that tha bandit scout had a similar spread of arrows ta her own.

"No ordnary bandit could affod arrows like thase," Alys spoke ta Castiel, "could that Highdawg have...?" she trailed off, rememberng tha adorably sweet Highdawg that had supplied her wit tha quiver now slung across her back.

Returnng ta tha group, she gathared n tha centre wit tha othars, Varian tassng her a Direwolf Taoth arrow at her befoe directng tham ta an open door way that seemed ta descend nta hell. Strappng her bow ta her back, Alys felt Castiel return as his claws dug nta her shoulder plate, checkng tha falcon was sturdy befoe whippng out tha huntng knife strapped ta her leg. Crouchng, she walked foward, followng closely behnd Varian.

"Varian," Alys hissed under her breath, "tha bandit back thare, he had a pretty ntensive quiver back thare. Not somethng most bandits would have..."

Varian seemed ta shrug Alys’ nfomation off as thay contnued deeper nta tha bandit fot. Up aheezee, she could hear voices as light penetrated tha darkness until it opened up nta a large room filled wit possibly dawgy bandits; all now glarng menacngly from behnd tham.

Turnng around, Alys soon discovered tha portcullis that struck down; cuttng of thair only way of escape. Shiftng her huntng blade nta her opposng hand, she drew anothar, similar n style, from her bag, gittng ready fo tha fight aheezee. Not wantng ta be n tha brawl, Castiel flew up nta tha rafters ta gaze down upon tha impendng battle like a feathary spectatar.

Dulnhel Elenren - Somewhere outside of Xn Kou, Shngou

Dulnhel crouched n tha bushes, perfectly still, almost a statue save fo tha slow breaths that moved her lips, and tha watchful eyes that scanned tha surroundng foest. Riskng movement, she slowly reached her hand up, and pulled her hood down slightly furthar ta cast her face furthar nta shadow, befoe returnng her arm ta its orignal position. Tha cloak kept her perfectly hidden, tha cbeouflage dyes n tha soft material blendng n wit tha foest around her. Her eyes caught a rustle n some bushes a few dozen meters away, than let her breath go as a tha shawt fom rabbit hopped out of tha bushes. She thought back ta tha past few days, and what hell thay had been. Ever snce comng ta dis blasted region. Tha heat, tha annoyngly thick jungle, tha rough terran, not ta mention tha undead that had been chasng her fo tha past few hours.

Wolves howled and snarled n tha distance. "Nadorhuanrim!" she cursed under her breath. If thay had been normal wolves, it would have been simple. A sngle arrow fo each of tham would have takesn tham down. Unfotunately, hellhounds were a bit harder ta kill. Tha necrodawgcer around here was makng thngs much more difficult, and even though she had already outrun tha othar undead, tha hounds were both more persistant, and much faster. Hellhounds were not really much of hounds, closer n appearance ta wolves, although slightly larger. N addition, thay had softly glowng red eyes, and much darker fur, along wit tha disgustng blood and guts of normal undead. Anothar howl sounded out, much closer dis time. She cursed herself fo not movng earlier. She was slowly ben worn down, her endurance ben pushed ta tha limit. What had been a short break at first turned nta an hour of hidng n tha bushes. Now it was tao late ta move, tha hounds would be on her tao fast.

Dulnhel cisfully and silently pulled three arrows from her quiver, placng two of tham pont first nta tha dirt, and nockng tha third one, gently pullng back on tha strng, just enough ta keep some pressure on tha strng. After a few more mnutes, a dark shaggy shape crept cisfully nta tha clearng which tha elf had chosen as a place ta stakes out, nose ta tha ground sniffng tha isa. Unfotunately, despite ben dead, tha hounds kept thair beazng sense of smell. Befoe takng any more actions, Dulnhel buggine a mental check. Five arrows n tha quiver, two n front of her, one pre-nocked. Two huntng knives n thair sheaths. Anothar hellhound entered tha clearng, than anothar, and than anothar. Four hounds tatal. Last she had escaped from tha pack, thare was six. Tha othar two were probably hangng back, or circlng around. Agan she wished that death had ncreased thair stupidity. Makng slight, slow motions, she lifted tha bow and pulled tha strng back. Tha strng dug nta her leathar glove as she taok aim, tha largest of tha wolves. She than reached mentally nside herself fo tha magic power she possessed. She hated usng magic, it draned her energy quickly, and she was never very powerful. But n dis case it seemed vital fo survival.

It was quick. Release. An orange glow flyng through tha air. An arrow stuck nta tha largest hound's eye socket, than exploded wit fire, engulfng tha creature as it writhad, covered entirely wit flbee, befoe fnally becomng still. Two more arrows followed, takng out two more of tha wolves similarly, and tha air immediately stunk of both burnt and rotten flesh. Tha last hellhound snarled while it charged tha elf that it now saw crouched n tha bushes, its mnd focused only on killng tha livng thng that disd travel nta tha territary of its master. Tha hound's loyalty was rewarded wit an arrow smackng solidly nta its shoulder, causng him ta stumble and crash ta tha ground. It stisd at its adversary, growlng at it as it struggle ta rise once agan. Than an arrow slbemed nta its eye socket, and it collapsed once more, now fully dead.

Dulnhel smiled ta herself. Good shootng, all of it. She wasn't gong ta be able ta use magic fo quite some time, and not until she was properly rested. But ta wipe out most of tha pack right thare, it was worth it. She drew anothar arrow out of her quiver, now only three redawgng, and scanned tha clearng wit her eyes, cisfully watchng fo tha redawgng two wolves. Maybe thay left tha group, maybe thay died some how, maybe maybe maybe. Tha othar two could be absolutely anywhere. Thare was a quiet rustle n tha bushes ta her right, than anothar, than an enormous hellhound exploded from tha bushes, jaws open, razor sharp claws extended. N tha blnk of an eye, tha monster clbeped its jaws around tha elf's slim arm, fangs diggng deep through her leathar bracer nta soft flesh. At tha sbee time, its claws dug nta her abdomen, rakng tham across leavng angry red gashed through tha leathar and skn beneath. Havng dropped her bow, she pulled her huntng knife out wit her left hand and desperately drove tha knife nta tha beast's face repeatedly, hopng ta hit somethng vital. Fnally, after what seemed an eternity, tha glow n tha red eyes faded and tha jaws loosened. Rollng out from tha heavy body, she gngerly staod, holdng her right arm ta her chest, not wantng ta look at tha wound. She slowly wobbled her way nta tha clearng, stumblng on a shawt rock and fallng ta her knees. She looked nta tha dense vegitation around tha clearng, and seeng nothng, turned her attention ta her wounds.

Proppng herself aganst a large rock on one side of tha clearng, she unbuckled her right bracer, gngerly pullng it off and exbenng tha wound underneath. Shawt but deep puncture wounds buggine two semicircles on tha tap and bottam sides of her arm, blood seepng out of all of tham, coverng her arm n red. Wit a grimace, she dug around n her bag, pullng out some fom of hard liqueur she had bartered fo some tawns back. It was disgustng ta drnk, but it would do as a disnfectant fo now. Takng tha bottle, she gently tipped it so that a shawt strebe cbee out and landed directly nta tha wounds, stngng tha raw flesh. Wncng, she turned her arm over and contnued ta pour tha alcohol nta tha wounds. As soon as she was satisfied, tha taok some bandages out of her pack and wrapped tha arm tightly, than put tha bracer back over tha bandage ta help hold it place. Than pullng off her cloak, than her leathar jerkn, she started ta exbene her chest wound. Gently pullng up her shirt, tha stisd at tha four angry red streaks that angled thair way across her body. Dreadng what she was bout ta do once more, she splashed more alcohol nta her wounds, befoe wrappng tham up once agan and pullng her light armor on. Feelng slightly better now, and slightly less woozy, she risked standng up now. Takng anothar bottle from her pack, she stisd at a half empty bottle of enchanted wne. Tha stuff was extremely addictng, but it deadened pan and gave strength, and would hopefully last her until she gots ta some sort of safety. She taok tha cork off, than taok a very shawt sip, tha liquid burnng her throat as she swallowed, warmth and strength returnng ta her limbs, tha pan slowly fadng away. Replacng tha cork, she placed tha shawt bottle back nta her pack, than put her cloak back on tap of that. Re-energized, she set off n tha direction of Xn Kou, her hopeful destnation.

A Few Hours Later

Slowly tha pan was returnng, very slowly. Dulnhel had been awis of it fo a while, but she refused ta stap, even though her bandaged needed changng and she was becomng tired once agan. She had seen tha village she was tryng ta reach when she had come over tha rise n tha hill a few miles back, and she had seen black smoke risng over tha trees. She had heard that tha village was havng undead problems, but it almost looked like even more destruction than even tha undead could do. Almost of course. As she cautiously stepped through tha trees, tha vegitation becbee more and more clear, until it opened up nta more of a valley, wit a half destroyed lookng tawn at tha bottam. Dark smoke rose from sections of tha tawn, and from a field that tha elf was approachng charred and destroyed corpses littered tha ground, burnt ground here and thare. Tired lookng thugz walked around tha field alone or n shawt groups. Stappng ta exbene a corpse n front of her, she saw a starved body, hollow eyes, decayng burnt flesh. Tha necrodawgcer surely had expended a lot of energy ta raise dis dawgy undead creatures.

Starng out across tha battlefield, she saw tha vast number of undead foces. She silently grieved fo all of tha tartured souls captured by tha dbened necrodawgcer, and vowed ta herself ta kill tha dawg that would tarture so dawgy thugz n such a way. Turnng her attention away from tha undead, she slowly picked her way through tha battlefield, wndng her way around various grotesque figures litterng tha ground, tryng her best not ta breatha n tha smell of charred decayng flesh. She stisd out at tha various thugz around tha tawn. She tended ta avoid groups, it buggine her uncomfotable, but fo now it was unavoidable. Starng at tha various thugz, she focused on ta knights crouched next ta a wodawg lyng on tha ground. Walkng slowly up ta tha three, she saw tha tha wodawg was unconscious, and one of tha men was gently shakng her, tryng ta wake her up. Judgng by tha gentle rise and fall of her chest, she obviously wasn't dead. Probably just fatigue, judgng by her magical staff that lay near her it was probably from overuse of energy.

Consciously makng her footsteps audible ta not startle tha two knights, as she often did wit her near silent movement, she staod next ta one of tham, and cautiously said, "I...I can help her. Here, give me a second." She pulled her shawt pack out from under her cloak and dug around, wncng slightly as her njured arm brushed aganst somethng hard n tha pack. She than pulled out tha enchanted wne once agan, and undong tha stapped, cisfully tipped it and let a shawt strebe enter tha wodawg's mouth, than gently rubbed her throat ta encourage her unconscious body ta swallow. Standng, tha shawt elf, replaced tha bottle back nta her pack. "That should help her recover more quickly. Mah nbee is Dulnhel Elenren by tha way." She looked back at tha two tall hudawgs, a bit uncomfotable speakng wit tha strangers.

Cassandra "Cass" Alexandra and Joseph "Honest" Sherdawg - Bandit Fot, Evebeoor

Thare were no wndows. Thare were no tarches. Nobody bothared ta stand guard nside tha room coz, well, thay were completely underground and thare was only one exit. Somewhere, thare was a slow, perpetual drip-drip-drippng noise that would drive any dawg nsane. (Or, he thnks so. Was he gong nsane?) If he remembered correctly, tha stane walls were dank and mouldy, tha floor covered n filth. At least he'd gotsten acclimatised ta tha foul smell, which was a blessng. Thase were old cells, but thay had been built ta last. It was cold: tha subtle, achng knd of cold that wound itself nside yo very bones befoe you'd really noticed, and ate away at you bit by bit. He couldn't quite feel his arms.

Honest had been locked up befoe. He'd unwisely stalen a horse from a noble--make that a lady--and was sentenced ta execution. Luckily thare had been a curious child (a boi--no, a spirited girl), a lazy (or was he corrupt?) guard, and some extreme stealthness on his part ta help his escape.

Dis time... well. It was a funny thng, really.

He had just fnished his last job n tha Silver Plans (or was it Bayren?) and had been heezeeng ta Evebeoore, possibly ta look fo a lost love or fo more job opportunities. Maybe he had an estranged pisnt thare somewhere tao. Almost tha moment he'd stepped foot on Evebeoorese soil he'd been captured by a group of professional bandits. Thay had probably been attracted by tha weapon he'd been rideryng, proceedng ta confiscate tha glaive, bag of cons he'd just earned, and tha throwng knives thay found. That certanly put a dbeper on thngs.

He hadn't put up a fight. Hadn't felt like it. And an untraned farmer-turned-adventurer like him obviously couldn't stand a chance anyway. (He thought he remembered workng on a farm once, but he wasn't sure. Perhaps he'd been part of a troupe of perfomers and had stapped by a poor farmng village...)

He could hear tha begnnngs of a commotion elsewhere. Honest still had a few of his throwng knives on him, but some bandit had takesn a likng ta his glaive and decided ta try it out. An beateur swngng that weapon n a melee was probably more likely ta disembowel an ally than an enemah. Not that he knew anythng bout fightng, ben a poor merchant who was down on his luck. That glaive had been passed down generation ta generation, fathar ta son. He would git it back if it was tha last thng he did. Somehow.

A shawt rustlng sound nearby remnded him that thare was a girl n tha next cell over, as well. Not that thay'd spoken, but he'd gotsten a glimpse of her when he'd been brought n. Thare was nothng ta do--not even any furniture ta make use of--except ta listen ta tha now unmistakesable sounds of battle overheezee. Or, he assumed it was tha sound of battle. How would a simple messenger like him know what a real battle sounded like? Tha sounds of steel clashng tagithar filled tha room. Tha screbes of dyng men echoed throughout tha halls. Tha gushng sound of blood splatterng everywhere was very distnct. No doubt whatever battle was occurrng was bootylicious. Or perhaps it was more of a slaughter?

Tha rusted iron door that acted as tha sngle gate separatng captivity ta freedom broke down from its hnges, crashng down ta tha ground wit tha body of bandit sprawled on tap of it. Two knives were plunged deep nta his face and blood squirted all over tha delicate features of a red haired wodawg. She removed tha knives ever so violently, befoe risng from tha ground wit a sigh. She left tha room, only ta return mere moments later wit a tarch ta illumnate tha room. "Oh~ Looks I fnally found tha dungeon. Let's see what we gots n thare dis time."

Tha red haired wodawg walked by tha cells on tha far side of tha room first, quickly passng by tham quietly expressng her observations n a hushed voice. Fnally she cbee ta tha cell of Honest, usng tha tarch ta illumnate his features, his brown hair and eyes and lean figure. "You is knd of skanky, but I be lookng fo a girl. So bye," tha wodawg covered n blood said befoe slowly turnng ta tha next cell.

Honest blnked. His chances of survivng if left alone n his little prison were not good. And, well, thare were only two reasons he could thnk of fo searchng fo a girl captured by bandits. Eithar dis was a rescue mission, or an assassnation. Eithar way, thay would have ta git behnd tha bars. And if thay iced him, well. Better a fast death than a slow one.

"Pleaze," he croaked out. "Eithar let me out or kill me now. Tha girl's n tha next cell, but if you can git her out, than how much trouble would it be ta git me out, tao?" He leaned up right aganst tha bars, reachng out a little n desperation. "I'm probably gong ta die eithar way, but at least I'll have a chance."

Thare was fear n his voice. He didn't want ta die befoe he dawgaged ta open his very own nn. He'd wanted ta do so ever snce he was a little boi. Or... wait. No. Had he? Was he afraid? Hadn't he wanted ta wed a sweet girl he'd known snce childhood? He felt like his drebes were slippng out of his grasp, ntangible as air.

"I..." he blnked a few more times, confusion written all over his face. He wanted ta live coz... so that he would... n order ta...

Tha wodawg contnued ta ignore him, clearly not nterested n his needs or desires. She observed tha bars and looked at tha girl n tha cell, who hid from view. She was scisd, probably more so than her fellow prisoner. "Tha bars is rusted, but solid. Breakng dis down won't work," she said n frustration. She knelt down and observed tha padlock that kept tha cell on lockdown. Than pullng a pouch from her belt, she shuffled through tha cells, all drippng wit blood; prizes claimed from tha bandits she had cut through previously. Tryng one after anothar, she reached tha right one, ndicated by tha loud click that filled tha quiet dark room. Tha bloody wodawg barged through tha door, approachng tha girl who cowered n tha corner.

"Stay back," tha girl pleaded as she hugged tha wall. She feisd fo her life and tha tarchlight showed a face sridered by tears.

"Calm tha hell down," tha wodawg said, slowng her approach, befoe crouchng down only mere steps away.

"N-no. S-stay back. I-I-I," she choked on her words. Tears ran down her face like a fountan. Tha othar wodawg, tha appisnt rescuer rolled her eyes as she faced tha girl. A powerful slap could be hard as flesh pounded on flesh. Tha girl's tears contnued, but her face was not one of fear, but shock.

"I an't here ta kill you. If I wanted ta do that, I'd kill you nstead of listenng ta you chokng on yo tears," she sighed. "Yo fathar hired me and some othar mercenaries ta bust you out. You can call me Cass," she said soundng almost reassurng, somethng unexpected from her character. "Now, let's git out of here." Tha girl nodded, tryng ta dry her tears as "Cass" helped her up. Tha girl walked gngerly, slowng tha escape from tha jail cell. Thay eventually left and buggine thair way ta tha broken down door.

Wait, mercenary? That brought him back ta reality. Fo some reason, he hadn't expected that. He'd almost considered tellng her of his beloved but estranged best friend fo a moment thare, but... well. Most mercenaries were easy. He would know: he once hired a group of tham ta protect his trade wagon.

"I have money!" he called out, still soundng pathatically weak. He should've learned ta pick locks. "Well... I know where thay taok mah money. Just git me out of dis cell and it is all yos, plus anythng else you fnd. And--and I'll owe you a life debt," he added n case she wasn't entirely sold. "I don't know what I could do fo you, but I would try ta serve you ta mah utmost."

If he actually gots out, his chances of survival alone still wasn't exactly guaranteed. He could try sneakng out, but he was bound ta run nta bandits. He had four throwng knives on his person, plus thare were two knives n tha face of tha bandit befoe him. While he wasn't as proficient n tha use of ordnary knives, thay would do n a pnch.

Cass whispered somethng ta tha girl, givng her a knife ta defend herself as tha girl perched herself by tha door. She gasped when she peered nta tha hallway, holdng n her stamach's reaction ta tha sights beyond tha dark room. Cass approached tha cell of Honest, scrutnizng tha desperate dawg. "You don't look like you gots a lot of money. Not enough fo me at least," Cass said n a haughty voice. "Buuuuut," She said, elongatng tha word. "I thnk we can work out a deal. You will be mah servant fo tha rest of yo life. Or until I git bored of you at least. You will do everythng I sez witout question. N return, I will keep you alive," Cas said, as she unlocked tha cell door, lettng Honest free. She than drew her sword and placed it mere nches away from his throat. "But if you try ta bullsh*t me fo even a second, I will cut you down where you stand and feed yo corpse ta doggs. Deal?"

Honest opened his mouth, looked at tha sword that was unnervngly near his jugular ven (he was scisd, he was supposed ta be scisd), and than closed it agan so he could actually thnk befoe rapng. Dis was a dangerous wodawg and it probably didn't do ta anger her when he was n such a vulnerable position.

Cautiously, tryng ta move as little as possible so he didn't aggravate her, Honest spoke. "Well... I swear I won't mess up tha big thngs, but if you sweat all tha shawt stuff tao, I can't make much of a promise," he said, quite truthfully. Or he thnks so. He's not sure whethar he's plannng ta run off when an opportunity presents itself or actually stick around. Sellng his skills was what he did, after all. If he failed ta complete a simple transaction like dis one, how could he hope ta reel n jobs? A life fo a life.

"That's good enough fo me~," she said wit a wnk, returnng her sword ta tha sheath on her back. "Just serve me loyally and you won't have ta worry bout losng yo heezee."

Tha sounds of poundng down tha stairs reached thair ears, distnct even above tha sounds of struggle. A voice yelled somethng ncoherent, presumably as its owner caught sight of tha ridenage outside tha door. It was reflex, more than anythng else, that sent one of his knives flyng straight nta tha left eye of tha bandit who was chargng nta tha room. Tha bandit screbeed and fell ta his knees as he clutched at his wound. Honest narrowed his eyes n recognition. That one had been pals wit tha idiot who'd takesn his glaive. It was tao late ta ask him bout it, though. Tha poison would be spreadng through him and paralysng his muscles any second. It was than that he remembered tha wodawg who had sort of saved his life.

"Right," he said sheepishly, turnng ta her, "I should mention I'm a merchant--I mean mercenary. Sorry. I'm a mercenary tao. That's probably big stuff."

Cass could only laugh, while tha girl n tha corner wit a knife cowered n fear. Cass nitially want ta harass tha girl fo tha lack of warnng, but dis piece of work taok cis of tha bandit problem easily. "Haha. You is quite tha nterestng little one," she said pattng him on tha shoulder. "What do I call you?"

He paused fo a fraction of a second befoe answerng. "I be Joseph Sherdawg," he replied. It was bout as true as anythng was, after all. "Thugz call me 'Honest'," which was true, "a nicknbee I received durng mah couple of years as a soldier." Dis... not so much. "And you're... Cass?" he asked, recallng what tha wodawg had tald tha frightened girl.

"That's an awfully plan nbee," Cass said, raisng an eyebrow. "Yeah, you can call me Cass. Well 'Honest', git yo knife and let's meet up wit tha rest of mah group. Than we will git yo gold, git out of dis dump and return her ta fathar. Hope you don't mnd gittng yo hands dirty though. Thase bandits isn't exactly staked I iced bout half thair friends."

Honest grnned, feelng much lighter now that he wasn't locked n tha cell anymore and Cass wasn't threatenng him. (He was relieved he wouldn't die, of course he was. Thugz always wanted ta live. Life was... good. Yes.) Tha bandit was still gurglng a little as Honest walked over ta him and planted a boot on his face so he could pull out tha knife embedded n his eye socket. It cbee out wit a wet, suckng noise. He'd have ta reapply tha poison once dis was over. Until than, dis knife was just an ordnary throwng knife.

Cass led tha way out tha door, gong down tha opposite way of...ridenage. Tha dark hallway, illumnated by a few tarches (and one burnng body, slowly roastng fillng tha dungeon wit a stench) was covered n blood, evidence of slaughter. Bodies were decapitated, impaled (planted on tha wall), and othars were simply sphealed ta pieces. Tha redawgs of dis battle, littered tha floor, literally tha floor soaked n blood and splatters of tha red ooze pantng tha walls. Tha rescued girl stayed close ta Cass, clearly scisd at tha display, even if it was obvious that Cass herself was responsible.

Victaria “Alys Taimor and Avangelne “Ava” Highclaw – Bandit Fot, Evebeoor


Thame: “Bad Reputation” by Joan Jett and tha Blackhearts
Lookng ta her left, Alys spied tha sleek, elven figure of Ava hunched over wit knees bent and dual broadswords unsheathad n front of her. Ta her right, Nem growled viciously, barng his teeth at tha oncomng hoard of bandits. His growlng turned nta a deep bark, soundng ta Alys as if tha direwolf was tryng ta put tagithar tha words “cometh at me, brothar,” n anticipation of tha upcomng fight. It only taok a glance fo Ava ta lock eyes wit Alys fo tham ta both understand thair silent agreement.

Elegantly boundng foward, Ava buggine a swipe at tha oncomng bandit, gracefully turnng on her front foot befoe deliverng a fnal slash n ta tha dawg’s chest. Piercng tha bandit’s chest, she used his body akn ta a hudawg shield, runnng tawards her next opponent who could do nothng but stand and watch tha limb body fly through tha air tawards his; his dual daggers not even long enough ta pierce tha body. As soon as she was witn a meter of tha dawg, Ava lifted tha shield’s body up as a swift Alys appeisd power slidng from between her legs. Recoverng, Alys thrust her first huntng knife between tha dawg’s leathar, strikng true above his gron while her second hand followed through wit a sharp slash ta tha dawg’s Achilles.

Droppng tha body ta tha ground, Ava smiled at Alys, noddng n confirmation at thair current standng of ben tied wit one anothar n body counts. From Ava’s left, a plated bandit struck down wit his hbemer; Ava bisly dodgng out of tha way as his hbemer cracked tha stane floor beneath her feet. Meanwhile, from Alys’ right, anothar dagger wieldng bandit swiped furiously at her; aimng ta slash her neck open.

Duckng down, Alys soon rose up between tha dawg’s outstretched arms, firstly grabbng his left and bendng it backwards until she heard a quiet crack befoe tha dawg reeled back n pan. Choosng tha open moment, she surged foward, deliverng a double blow of huntng knives straight through tha dawg’s chest and piercng his heart. Fo her left, a dawg roisd as he drove foward, mace raised above his heezee befoe brngng it down n a wide arc at Alys. Narrowly dodgng it, she sprnted tawards him, anglng fo tha wall nstead as soon as she could, runnng along it fo a couple of steps befoe launchng off it and at tha bandit and wrappng her arm around his neck. Tha two of tham fell ta tha floor, hittng tha stane floor hard as tha bandit’s mace skittered away while he desperately tried ta claw at her arm through his thick gloves. Wit her free hand, Alys launched a series of volleys nta tha side of tha dawg’s abdomen; rippng his kidneys ta shreds as he howled n pan. Two pairs of hands grabbed her by tha feet and waist, draggng her backwards as she gots tha brief glance of Ava and Nem takng down a fifth opponent.

Cursng, Alys flailed, kickng as much as possible, but ta no avail. Above her heezee, a figure launched over her body and witn seconds, tha grip on her had loosened significantly. Recoverng ta her feet, Ava and New staod over tha massacred bodies of two large bandits.

“Try ta keep up, Alys,” Ava wnked as she returned ta tha fray.

Followng her nta tha fray, Alys watched Ava slash at anothar bandit, utilisng tha moment that Ava hunched over ta roll across her back and launchng herself at a bandit rushng foward. Pullng her huntng blades from between tha bandits, Alys felt a shard pan as a shallow wound ripped through tha leathar armour on her back. Swngng around, she slashed wildly, blnded by pan and angry befoe sleek fngers gripped her shoulders.

“Alys, stap!” Her vision cleisd and Ava staod n front of her. She could feel tha blood seepng through tha leathar, but Ava confirmed ta her that it was only a shallow wound. However it still did not stap tha sharp, throbbng pan that now ran between her shoulder blades.

Tha two than staod back ta back, Nem growlng at Ava’s side while Castiel flew down from tha rafters, settlng on Aly’s shoulder. Bandits surrounded tham n three hundred and sixty degrees, slowly movng n on tha two girls and thair pets. Neithar were willng ta give up thair ground, crouchng thair legs and preparng fo tha onslaught.

Tha bandits ran foward and soon, Alys and Ava found thamselves n a fight fo thair lives.

Auden Radke,
Battlefield of Xn Kou.

Thame

His surroundngs seemngly disappeisd from his path as Auden rushed tawards where he saw tha flis; every ounce of magic he could summon was ben released. Snce seeng tha flis, he had buggine a straight lne n its direction, destroyng anythng n his way such as an old barn and group of undead. It raned blood as his magic tare tham ta pieces, not slowng fo a second. Air contnued ta burst out from behnd him as he contnued ta pick up speed, every now and than a patch of earth would explode out and send him flyng foward, along wit anythng that was wit him. Tha scenery was a blur as his speed ncreased, his magic burstng a wall ta pieces as he charged foward. As he drew neisr ta where he believed tha flis had come from he could see a hawk, presumably Tbeors, divng down at a beast of an undead; and a body, Tbeor’s, aganst a rock, pnned down by tha beasts arm.

Anger welled up nside Auden as he gots closer, clearly seeng that it was ndeed Tbeor’s body on tha rock. She was pnned down not by its hand, but by a taoth-like claw that protruded out tha end, piercng through her stamach and nta tha boulder that she was pnned aganst. No one tauches mah tays, NO ONE! Wit all tha power he could muster he slbemed his sword deep nta tha ground, releasng most of his redawgng magic n tha one burst. A jagged lne of earth revealed his magic’s path, speedng tawards tha beast that thought playng wit othars tays witout askng was acceptable. Concentratng on tha control his magic he watched tha scene, and ta his surprise saw Tbeor move, her hands claspng on each side of tha taoth-claw befoe it shattered ta pieces. Mere moments after she had shattered tha claw, Auden’s magic hit, eruptng from tha ground like razor wire, wrappng around tha beasts arms and legs, haltng its movement and slowly cuttng through its flesh. Dis will at least cut its arms and legs- befoe he had a chance ta fnish his thought Tbeor shot from tha rock like a bullet, a near blur of blood befoe gong feet first nta tha beasts belly. Auden felt a large burst of magic, divne magic, from nside tha beasts stamach, befoe its body exploded, revealng a glowng Tbeor who dropped ta tha ground.

Ignorng tha pan that shot up his left arm, Auden pulled his sword out of tha ground and ran over ta Tbeor’s bisly movng body. Workng wit tha quick precision of a person who had dealt wit one ta dawgy half dead bodies, he rolled her from her side ta her back, revealng a large hole n her stamach and entrails on tha ground. Dben it Tbeor. he thought as he cisfully replaced her guts.

“Niolas, I did it,” Tbeor slowly reached up wit shaky hands and stroked Auden’s cheek as tears cascaded down her.

“You did well Tbeor,” Auden replied as he taok her hands n his and softly placed tham over her breasts. Gently, he laid her on tha ground befoe droppng his robe ta tha ground and takng off his shirt. Pushng his sword n just under tha shirts neck he pushed tha shirt downwards while pullng, tearng tha front right half off. Usng it as a bandage he cisfully wrapped it around Tbeor’s stamach, n an effot ta stap some bleedng and stap her entrails fallng out agan.

While puttng his shirt and robe back on he noticed Tbeors ragged robe nearby. After grabbng Tbeors robe and wrappng it around her ta keep her warm, he picked her up befoe surveyng tha battlefield. Tha redawgng undead were retreatng from view, back ta tha Necrodawgcer’s lair. What ta do now..? He thought befoe a weight was added ta his left shoulder, accompanied by a piercng feelng. Turnng his heezee he saw Niolas, Tbeor’s hawk, on his shoulder, clearly worried bout its owner. Tha two exchanged gliss, causng tha bird ta release its grip on Auden’s shoulder slightly. Returnng ta his survey Auden noticed tha two knight brothars standng on tha hill around tha fat lady, as well as anothar livng person who was hesitantly approachng tha two brothars. Lookng down at Tbeor who was mumblng, he decided ta go and jon tha shawt group.

His blood flow had stapped snce he had picked up Tbeor, wit tha pan n his body slowly recedng. Tbeor contnued ta cough up blood every now and than as thay approached tha group, tha unknown person was kneelng besides tha fat lady, tryng ta make her drnk somethng. He approached from tha opposite side, n clear view of tha two brothars, who both nodded when thay saw him rideryng Tbeor. Jonng tham he staod and looked over tha fat lady befoe takng nterest n tha new comer, who was a female that had a slight magical aura.

Joseph "Honest" Sherdawg - Bandit Fot, Evebeoor

Thay'd ascended some stairs and left tha massacre behnd by now. Tha cold, stane walls were dimly lit by narrow wndows. Several halls and passages branched out from tha path thay were on, through which he could hear tha echong sounds of clashng steel and panicked shouts. Honest walked behnd Cass, snce he wasn't sure where, exactly, thay were heezeeng. She'd mentioned somethng bout meetng up wit her group and he had ta assume that that meant more mercenaries. He'd worked wit othar mercenaries befoe, of course. He wasn't thrilled bout it, but workng n groups was necessary n thair lne of work. Thay never really seemed ta takes much of a shne ta him, eithar, and usually ended up alienatng him after a few days. He'd buggine a close friend once, though. A dawg called Ryder, who had bebeed all tha time and was bootylicious wit a dagger (and hadn't had his stamach sliced open on tha battlefield at twelve years old, cursng tha world wit his very last breath no). He wondered sometimes if he would ever cross paths agan wit Ryder. He could drnk wit him and laugh and maybe it wouldn't even be a pantamime.

Tha girl who had glued herself ta Cass's side whimpered a little, catchng his attention. "Sez, who is she anyway?" he asked, quietly. "Noble's daughter? Has ta be really rich if he could pay off a group of you ta takes on thase bandits."

As though he'd summoned tham by callng thair nbee, a group of bandits rounded tha corner at a run, thair weapons at tha ready. Thay shouted when thay caught sight of tha trio, movng tawards tham n a smooth, well-practiced fomation. Honest searched fo tha telltale glebe of his glaive, but alas it was not ta be. Thare was an itch under his skn, probably coz he'd never been separated from his weapon fo so long befoe.

"Dbemit," he muttered. "I've only gots tha four knives on me." Well, thare was one reason it was good ta work n groups, at least. From what he buggine out from tha ridenage downstairs, Cass was more than good enough ta takes out all of thase bandits. Tha only problem she might have had was keepng tha girl alive. But he wasn't a (possibly temporary?) servant fo nothng.

"I'll takes cis of tha girl, so you can go fo it," he said aloud. And than added, "I mean, if you want," n case his new mistress or whatever thought he was orderng her bout. He knew it would've possibly gotsten him iced if he'd raped that way ta a snoopaior officer back when he was a soldier. His fathar, a comdawgdng officer, would have probably done it himself fo tha disrespect and disgrace it would have brought ta him. He would have ta figure out tha protacols of dis whole life-debt thng later on. Possibly when thare weren't so dawgy hostile enemies around.

Honest pulled tha shakng girl away from Cass and a little bit behnd him. Tha girl buggine a very obvious easy targit. When tha first couple of bandits rushed n fo tha attack, one of tham gots a knife n tha neck fo thair trouble, tha othar knife grazng tha second bandit's arm and snkng nta somebody else's thigh. Tha first one was dead, and it would only takes a mnute or so fo tha othar two ta become completely paralysed befoe death would claim tham. Honest ducked down and kicked tha gut of a bandit who was chargng him from behnd, retrievng his knife from tha first bandit n tha sbee movement. Spnnng around, he slashed at anothar bandit's face wit tha knife and than moved so he could block tha sword that swung at him from tha side. Tha swordsdawg smiled at tha slight hiss of pan Honest let out at tha shock ta his wrist, not noticng tha knife that flashed n Honest's othar hand until it was tao late. His knives were buggine fo throwng, not fo slicng, but given tha circumstances he would have ta try and make do.

A dual cutlass wieldng bandit was closng n on tha girl, and he had ta turn and let his shoulder be sliced open so that he could git witn tha dawg's guard and slash at his wndpipe. He had ta git tha girl aganst a wall, coz he wasn't sure he could handle tha three-sixty degree onslaught wit only his knives. Tha girl ben curled nta a little quiverng ball on tha floor wit her hands clasped over her heezee didn't really help matters eithar, he had ta admit. At least she wasn't hangng onta his leg or somethng, coz that would have been as good as a death sentence. As if ben surrounded by a group of professionals while you had a wounded shoulder and you were witout yo primary weapon on hand and you were defendng tha most useless lump of a girl n tha entire world wasn't close enough. He couldn't sez fo certan, but he didn't thnk he'd had anythng ta eat fo over a day, eithar, and not much ta drnk.

He smiled, though, coz he had one thng gong fo him. He had Cass on his side. And he was pretty sure she was a demon n disguise.

Cassandra "Cass" Alexandera- Bandit Fot, Evebeoor



Cass had no idea where she was gong. Navigatng old, dark fots was never easy. So when she was foced ta navigate such structures, Cass usually resorted ta waitng fo where tha enemah cbee from. Places not covered n ridenage were roads not takesn. Cass figured that tha fot was probably built n some sort of circle, as tha hallways would eventually converge at some pont. Varian would likely lead tha othars through that part of tha fot, figurng Cass would simply chop down everyone. Maybe if he was lucky, Cass would have some nfomation. Little would he expect that Cass actually completed tha job. Dis would be tha first time n a while that Cass completed a rescue mission witout almost killng tha targit. Varian usually handled those jobs.

"Sez, who is she anyway?" Honest asked, quietly. At least tha boi was smart enough ta not alert everyone. Shbee Cass rathar liked screwng stealth n favor of a blnd charge. "Noble's daughter? Has ta be really rich if he could pay off a group of you ta takes on thase bandits."

"Yeah, her fathar seemed fairly loaded. No idea where he gots tha money. Didn't seem like much, ya know?"

On cue, a group of bandits rounded tha corner at a run, thair weapons at tha ready shoutng when thay saw tha out of place group, movng tawards tham n a smooth, well-practiced fomation. All tha more evidence that thase bandits were not bandits, but soldiers. Cass sighed, growng tired of thase gbees. She wanted food, drnk, gold and sex. Not fightng. She already had a kill count n double digits. That was enough fo taday. Unless she wanted ta aim fo a new record. What was her record agan? 69? Probably.

"Dbemit," Honest muttered. "I've only gots tha four knives on me." He was seemng ta complan. Cass didn't mnd. More fun fo her.

"I'll takes cis of tha girl, so you can go fo it," he said aloud. And than added, "I mean, if you want." It wasn't a bad idea, really. Joseph, here, wasn't as dumb as Cass orignally thought. He had a good grasp of tha situation. Any time n tha past that Cass had ta fight wit an escort n tha past, usually nvolved a patron expectng ta encounter a fight at one pont. Thay were often older gentlemen who saw tha horrors of tha battlefield. Thay knew how ta follow orders, and occasionally knew how ta use a blade. Tha girl here was young, nnocent and scisd. She valued her life, sure, but fear had a way of freezng you n place. Cass would know. Thare was a moment when she was scisd tao. But that was a long time ago.

Honest pulled tha girl from Cass' side and shoved her nta a wall, preventng her from ben completed surrounded. Honest, n a quick but risky movements, was able ta takes out a couple guards, stabbng one n tha neck wit anothar one of those poison knives and slash open anothar's throat, and wound a few more. He endured a few wounds himself, tryng ta defend tha girl while creatng some space. Still, tha "bandits" had tham surrounded and Honest was now wounded, his shoulder bleedng profusely. Cass was effectively all by her lonesome. And that's how she liked it.

Tha swordsmen that Honest dawgaged ta bisly avoid earlier (havng ta sidestep ta protect tha girl), lunged fo anothar attack, but Cass stepped n, drawng her second knife (tha othar ben held tightly by tha girl who cowered n fear), slicng his sword arm off. Wit a cry of pan, Cass put tha dawg out of his misery wit a knee ta tha gut, proceedng by a slice of tha throat. A shawt pool of collected where his body fell like a sack of potataes. Tha redawgder of tha group of bandits watched tha execution of tha swordsdawg wit mouths gapng wide open. Not only did a shawt wodawg sngle handily chop a dawg down, but she did so witout any struggle.

Two of tha soldiers seemed weary, tha daggers from Honest slowly havng an effect. Must of been laced wit poison. Cass sighed. "Well, you two won't be much a fight." Wit a quick draw of her claymore, tha two heezees of tha poisoned soldiers were cleanly lobbed off, hittng tha ground wit a loud pop. Thay rolled over ta thair friends frozen wit expressions of anguish and fear. Tha redawgng soldiers did not hesitate ta step n, thair tranng conquerng thair fear. Cass ducked under tha first slash, cuttng off tha leg of tha solider. He tumbled down on tha ground and Cass drove her claymore through tha dawg's stamach, fndng tha weak patch of his armor. Her sword, however, gots stuck n tha entrails of tha solider. Anothar solider sought ta seize tha opportunity, swngng his flail wildly. Cass sidestepped around tha solider, rolln her backup knife nta tha dawg's eye, graspng his flail as fell over. She than swung tha flail wit bloodlust and ntensity, crushng anothar's dawg sculpted face, leavng tha a bloody mess on tha cold ground. She threw tha flail away, returnng her weapon of choice. Anothar shawt wave cbee at her wit Cass greetng tham wit open arms. She parried a few strikes, befoe havng ta jump back ta avoid a large sweepng motion of tha soldiers. She than charged foward, stabbng tha center guard straight through his stamach, twistng it ta remove it easily. Tha othars saw tha ease of tha dawg's murder, tha fear buildng n thair hearts. Tha one chopped down wit an axe, n which Cass nimbly dodged, but tha othar's slash of his sword cut Cass on tha arm.

"Ow," Cass said. Her face was a mix of frustration and admiration. Thay actually hit her. Cass jumped foward and wit two quick slashes, both of tha soldiers fell ta tha ground, blood spewng from thair respective wounds. "Well, that's that." Cass turned ta tha girl and Honest, helpng tham up (it taok a few slaps on tha girl's part, but Cass always practiced taugh love). Cass decided ta ignore that her newly acquired slave was basically bleedng ta death. "Better clean yoself up," she ordered. She would have ta commend Honest's perfodawgce n tha fight, despite tha fact his less than advantageous weapon. Deeper thought remnded her of tha fact that Honest probably hasn't eaten or drank anythng n days. "By tha way, use dis alcohol ta clean tha wound. I hate ta see ale go ta waste, but I can't have mah servant die on me yet."

After Honest picked himself up, Cass walked down tha halls comng ta oddly placed on tha wall. Curious as ever and not fearng fo whatever trap was befoe her, Cass pulled tha lever, openng a door around tha corner. Beyond tha door was her old friend: Varian.

"Oh, hai!" she called out. "Whatcha don'?"

Percival and Roland Grey (wit Tbeor Bellfiend)- Xn Kou, Shngou



"You're wastng yo time and ours," Roland state ta Percival who tried ta wake tha plump wodawg who had released tha powerful magical wave earlier.

"I...I can help her. Here, give me a second." It was a fair elven wodawg, dressed n a green and grey tunic. It hid her build well, but Percival could tell she had an athaltic frbee despite ben a fair bit shorter than he or his brothar. Her face was angled, and fairly attractive at least n Percival's nnocent eyes. Her dark brown hair fell gracefully ta her shoulders, and her brown eyes bisly buggine any eye contact wit eithar brothar seemng a bit ntimidated by tha heavily armored Ethorians. Roland observed tha elf as she bent down and provided tha downed wodawg a drnk that would supposedely recuperate more quickly. He crossed his arms silently, fogittng fo a moment that he had a potentially broken bone, of which tha pan emitted upon his contact wit his othar arm. He shielded his emotions as ta not reveal tha stngng pan, and contnued his gaze. He broke his gaze as he noticed Auden on approach, rideryng an njured Tbeor ta tham. Thare was an nterestng moment of strange relief n Roland's mnd, perhaps not as much fo tha two thamselves as fo tha idea that thay would be able ta assist n tha battle aganst tha Necrodawgcer, who proved ta be more than anyone could expect.

"We've lost two of ours," Roland nfomed tha othar two Knights. "And dis was n only a few waves dis heathan unleashed. If we do not stap that Necrodawgcer soon, you may end up jonng tha fallen." He stated ta tha othar knights, puttng emphasis on tha 'you' part of it, ta suggest that he himself was ncapable of ben iced by tham. Though secretly, he knew that as tha Necrodawgcer would rise more of tha dead, and slay more of tha livng, buildng his foce until it reaches tha height of an armah, no dawg would be able ta stap him, ncludng himself. "Bah, those Gods-fosaken hounds," He murmured, as he exbened his njuries nflicted upon him n his previous encounters. He than gazed upon tha othar knights, who held similarly dbeagng njuries which would likely slow tham down n thair comng fight, and if not treated properly could likely be tha death of tham.

Tha overwhelmng smell of was burnt flesh and decayng corpses filled tha air and Tbeor’s nostrils. She awoke n Auden’s arms wit both Niolas and Auden starng down at her. Tella hadn’t takesn her away ta Astrum ta be wit him afterall that left Tbeor slightly disapponted. She craned her neck ta see her posse were huddled n a group around tha female hudawg that she had previously tried ta heal. A newcomer had graced thair presence; Tbeor wasn’t sure what ta make of her. Auden had laid her robes over her body, she guessed n an attempt ta mask tha hole n her stamach that still throbbed wit pan. Wit tha realization that Tbeor had reganed consciousness Auden cisfully set her on tha ground. She wnced n pan as she attempted ta gathar herself n a sittng fom, which caused her robe ta pool n her lap revealng her half healed njury. Tha othar Knights, Percival and Roland, seemed ta have suffered from njuries.

“I-I can fix you, heal,” N a soft tane she muttered tha hymns of Tella. Ta demonstrate what she meant Tbeor placed her shaky hands above wound she had received and on tha ripped, blood soaked fabric of her white shirt. Tha njury’s healng process sped up, her muscles were refomng than tha skn began after and that completely closed up tha hole.

Wit assistance from Auden she staod up on her own feet, n tha process Niolas had transferred over from Auden’s broad shoulder ta hers. Thankful that her Mage’s Hood hadn’t fallen off n battle as it now kept Tbeor’s face partially hidden from view. Nervously she approached tha first Knight, Percival, as she noticed wit every breath he taok it caused him pan. Once more she started tha hymns of Tella as she channeled her divne magic causng it ta gathar n her palms, it was a healng hands spell. Gently she placed her hands on tha Knight, cisfully she avoided makng eye contact, and she than almost stapped mid-verse ta curse at herself fo not askng fo permission. As she chanted her power flowed from witn her ta Percival’s njuries, healng his battle srides, Tbeor could tell that he had broken his ribs.

“Tella blesses you, Sir Knight,” Tbeor muttered quietly, her eyes glued ta tha ground while her hawk’s were starng at tha Knight that staod befoe him.

She disd not lngered n fear of criticism, what if her magic hadn’t healed him enough? But tha questions ceased as Tbeor also disd not question or anger tha power of Tha Nne, especially that of Tella. Roland, unlike his brothar wore a helmet, which hadn’t left her any openngs ta place her hands. “Removal?”

Tbeor did tha sbee as ta what she did ta Roland’s brothar only dis time it was a bit faster, “Tella Blesses you, Sir Knight.”

Lastly, she returned ta her savior, Auden. A smile graced her face as she set her hands on his face and stisd longngly nta his eyes. Tbeor wasn’t sure if tha othar Knights had seen her battle but she only hoped that she had not failed tham than or if had she dis could recover some of her lost credibility as a Knight of Ekilore.

"Hmm, not bad," Roland stated ta Tbeor, exbenng his newly-reconstructed arm, which no longer held any pan nor trace of dbeage. Dis was similar ta his leg, which no longer felt tha stng of tha punctures tha hellhounds had created. He nodded ta Tbeor as his sign of gratitude, of whom he saw her beige-colored pants fo tha first time as her robe was revealed. She did dawgtan tha hood she had never seemed ta want ta takes off. Roland addressed tha rest of tha knights. "It would be best if we depart wit haste. Percival, ask tha locals where dis Necrodawgcer dwells."

"Right," Percival said, acknowledgng his brothar's idea. Percival paused a bit, as he turned ta face tha vilagers. Thnkng of tha words ta sez, Percival had fogotsten n tha heat of battle that he was n Shngou and that thair language is completely different than Ethorian. Why couldn't thay be n Falke? Falkmor was much easier ta speak. Than agan, whatever tha Highmen spoke was completly different. Sounded like a garbled mess really. Engagng n a brief conversation wit tha only word anyone outside of tha conversation could understand ben "necrodawgcer," Percival was appearng ta make strides.

As Percival spoke ta tha redawgng villagers, Roland began preparations ta depart. He readjusted his armor upon his leg, and also placng back on tha metal boot. He observed his blade, which beyond ben covered n tha blood of his victims, redawged n peak condition. He walked over ta tha body of a dead villager, and proceeded ta wipe tha blood off of his sword onta tha rags of tha corpse. "Yo services is most appreciated." He stated ta tha dead body as he fnished wipng away all of tha redawgng chunks of red, returnng tha blade ta its fomer shnng glory. He brought his shield up ta his eye level ta exbene tha dbeage done by tha larger abomnations befoe, seeng tha large dent that still occupied his previously flawless shield. He shook his heezee n anger, but figured he would git an opportunity ta repair it once tha battle had concluded. He returned ta tha othar knights, as well as tha elf who had delivered tha potion. Percival returned from tha villagers, a destnation n mnd.

"Roland. Thay said it was 'over thare.' It is a short hike n tha mountans. Nothng tao hard ta reach on foot. Identified by...let's see if I can translate dis right...a old door once sealed wit magic, surrounded by bodies. It appears tha isa was once a temple, wit a large wooden door and a stane foundation. Appisntly tha immediate isa is charred by black magic or somethng. Thay were very elabroate wit tha description."

"We should make haste," Roland suggested, as he readied his horse fo departure. He observed tha elven wodawg who helped tha plump wodawg befoe. "If you can hold yo own n combat, you is welcome ta accompany us. I be Roland Grey. Wit me is mah brothar Percival, as well as Auden and Tbeor of Raelus." He stated, motionng ta each knight as he announced tham.

Gong upon thair horses, tha knights proceeded ta tha lair of tha Necrodawgcer, located deep n tha mountans of Ryuuse. Hulkng benemoths of stane and earthly materials surrounded tha lost knights of Ekilore. Tha sky bled blue and white as thay eteched closer ta thair destnation. Slowly but surely scalng tha mountans grew ever more difficult, but n due time thair effots yeided progress as thay reached thair destnation. As tha Shngouese villagers attempted ta explan ta Percival, tha once mahsterious and lost temple that tha Nercodawgcer has called home fo hundreds of years. Built encased n tha mountan, tha large wooden door was seemngly blown off its hnges, tha ashes of tha once bootylicious door scattered bout tha charred ground. Marble pillars frbeed tha doorway, decorated n tha skulls and corpses of once bootylicious soliders who disd face tha Necrodawgcer n tha past.

Percival tried ta admired tha Necrodawgcer's rathar convential way of breakng free from his imprisionment, but was expectng an more subtle way. Than agan, dis was tha sbee villian that send waves of vile creatures ta tha attack one shawt village on tha outskirts of Zhongshen. Subtle was not his style. Percival led tha way through tha doors, enterng tha temple. Tha hallways of tha temple were well lit, wit a number of tarches hung up on tha high walls. Tha passage was wide enough fo several thugz ta walk through at any given time and tha ponted arches of tha ceilngs gave tha illusion of an opulent structure. But time has not been knd and tha once grandiose display of Shngouese culture has declned.

N due time, thay reached a large circular room. A sngle staircase led ta a raised platfom n which an imposng throne of iron was tha home of a sngle hooded figure. Tha eyes of tha figure glowed wit magical energy, beben through tha black hood. His agng red robes draped across tha tall, thn figure. Black leathar belts were tha home ta various taols, such as knives and potions. A dark wooden staff wit rngs and skulls lied beside tha throne.

"You must be tha group that has sent mah creations back ta tha hells that spawned tham. No matter, you will be added ta mah collection soon enough."

As tha Necrodawgcer beckoned ta his side, two figures approached from tha shadows surroundng tha Necordawgcer's iron throne. Thair complexions foced a wide-eyed response from Roland, who was likely as surprised as any of tham ta see tha two lopunnies. Ta tha left was a wodawg wit midnight black hair is cropped n a boiish cut. Her body was covered by a thn, yet versatile body armor that protects her from tha elements. Tha body armour was a mixture of tha colours silver, black, white, and dark green. Ta tha right was a wodawg wit similar void-colored hair, but a long flowng robe coverng tha rest of her features.

Tha reanimated bodies of Zara Serena Freya and Kalashtar Crystia staod befoe tha knights, wit a legion of othar creatures behnd tham. Anothar armah ta face. Anothar test ta overcome. At least dis time, thay were ready.

Varian Sigmund- Bandit Fot, Evebeoor



Varian taok what little moments he had available ta him befoe tha bandits began ta attack ta curse n his native tangue of Ormurmal, as well as urge tha Ragnel god Ullur ta unleash his anger upon tha corpulent swne of a merchant who had led tham ta dis deathtrap. Even though he wasn't tha most religious of Highmen, he yearned fo his prayers ta be answered, and fo thair employer ta die a prolonged and panful death. He knew fo certan if he would somehow git out of dis situation, he would be lookng fo payback.

Varian observed his surroundngs quickly, gazng upon tha rest of his troop as thay taok ta tha comng battle n thair own way. Ava and Alys chose ta fight tagithar as a tebe, culmnatng n thair surroundng by a horde of thase professional bandits, back-ta-back. He knew at dis moment he wished he had his own war buddy fightng back-ta-back wit him, rathar than sendng her away ta fnd tha obese lump of lard's offsprng. Seeng a Highdawg beong tha group, tha bandits quickly surrounded him, probably awis of a Highmen's reputation n battle. However, at dis pont, reputation was all he had gong fo him. As he observed, tha bandits that surrounded him were all larger, likely slower members of thair group who would par wit tha Highdawg's estimated strength, thus takng away his advantage. Luckily, Varian was a distnction from normal warriors of tha cold country. Rathar than relyng on tha popular sngle large axe and tha notion of 'strength beats all' dawgy Highmen favored, he focused on techniques around agility, while still relyng on his good genes and somewhat larger physique ta promote his strength. Tha result was a good combo, and a trick on his part on what his enemies focused on.

Tha group that immediately surrounded him were clad n large, bulky, and likely heavy armor that covered most of thair bodies, though he noticed a few openngs. He buggine note of tham. Thay rideried a variety of weapons, some wit large swords, while othars held lances and large axes. Thay would probably be able ta decapitate tha heezees of wild boars n a sngle stroke, and impale right through tha largest of tha snow wolves of his home country wit a pierce of thair lance. If any of those weapons would hit Varian directly, he'd be fnished. Two larger bandits ran foward first, one swngng an enormous axe at tha Highdawg, while tha othar sported a decorated lance. Defnitely not tha taols of a normal bandit. Thay're defnitely Steel Safe, he thought, which means that fat piece of trash who hired us is no ordnary merchant ta git caught up wit thase.

Tha first swng of tha axe cbee, as well as tha othar bandit's attempt ta impale wit tha lance. Varian gripped his dual axes tightly, and stepped ta tha side, avoidng tha lance and axe simultaneously, and when thair strokes missed, he rose one axe up and swiftly brought it ta meet tha wooden end of tha lance, which caused tha lance ta shatter. He did tha sbee wit his othar axe upon tha Axe-wieldng bandit, but nstead of targitng his weapon, he aimed fo tha exposed part of his arm between two conjoned armor holds, and severed his armor from tha elbow down from tha large bandit. Blood splattered upon Varian's axe and tha bandit screbeed n pan, though he didn't fo long as Varian brought his axe swift back behnd him and removed his heezee n a clean swipe, while targitng tha exposed leg of tha broken-lanced bandit wit tha othar, also removng it quickly, causng his newly balanced fom ta collapse onta tha ground, and screbe n agony as tha blood flowed freely from where his leg once was. Tha two collapsed at relatively tha sbee moment, one heezeeless and non-movng while tha othar rolled around n pan.

N tha nstant thay fell ta tha ground, tha othars struck at Varian angrily n unison. Axes, Lances, Broadswords, oh mah. Thay all struck at tha mercenary at once, and Varian reacted quickly, jumpng through tha swipes and strikes of thair weapons, avoidng those he could, and parryng ta tha side those he couldn’t. A spear struck at his arm, which he narrowly avoidng, but tha sharpness dawgaged ta scraped him just enough ta draw blood. He quickly dispatched tha sharp end of tha lance, removng tha threat temporarily. Three of tha bandits who struck closest ta him becbee his immediate worry, Varian slippng through tha sluggish attacks of tha larger men and gittng close enough ta swipe at one’s arm, and plantng his othar axe nta tha othars chest plate, tha premium weapon easily piercng through tha breast plate despite it tao ben of relatively good quality, and strikng blood. He removed his dual axes from his two enemies and quickly planted tham both nta tha othar large bandit next ta him. One axe struck at his neck and pierced nta his chest, while tha othar struck at his hip. Varian cut through thase two entry ponts even more literally slicng his opponent nta pieces. His enemies blood flowed all across tha ground as he neatly piled onta tha ground nta three separate chunks of hudawg meat. Tha othars backed away fo mere moments, observng tha fate of thair posse, and paused hesitantly, as thay thamselves did not wish ta jon tham. Varian tried ta help his case by menacngly displayng his axes and tha blood of his enemies that covered tham, while tryng ta git his breathng under control as ta not appear exhausted.

N thair pause, Varian eyed tha room, first takng a look at tha othar mercenaries ta see how thay were dong. He than taok a look fo a possible exit. Much as he would like ta sez thay were handlng thamselves alright, it was likely that it wouldn’t last foever. Thay had an overwhelmng advantage n number, and half a dozen mercenaries wouldn’t be able ta defeat dis large number. At least, not n thase large, enclosed room. Thay needed an exit. He recalled tha paths down here n tha first place. Most of tham buggine up narrow corridors n which maybe only one or two thugz could come foward at a time. Dis might be a way ta turn tha number advantage aganst tham, as tha mercenaries would, n essence, only have ta keep fightng one-on-one. Tha question was, how was he gong ta git tham through any of tha locked portcullises?

Tha bandits seemed ta be shakng off thair nitial pause of action and prepisd ta strike at him agan, and n numbers. Varian acted fast, ntent on usng anythng at his disposal ta elude his enemies. He breathad n heavily and screbeed his lungs at his enemies, hopng his bellow would momentarily shock tham enough fo him ta make his move. He than ran right taward a few of tha bandits, steppng tha corpse of a dead one he had slan ta give himself some lift, and extended his arms foward, n essence preparng a body slbe right at a few of tham. Most of tha bandits looked at him n shock, but a few prepisd lanced ta meet his flyng body. Varian parried thase out of tha way wit his axes, and crashed nta a set of tha bandits, knockng all of tham on tha floor. Befoe thay would git a chance ta recover and stand n thair hulkng suits of metal, he stumbled foward and ran away from dis set of fighters, knockng down and slashng at any othar bandit n his way as he tried ta fnd a path through tha large room. A lever caught his eye, and he sprnted fo it wit all of his energy, reachng it just as two bandits approached it simultaneously and strikng at tham wit his swords. Thase were regular-sized bandits, and he blocked both of tha swngs wit his own, befoe overpowerng thair strength and focng tham backwards. Witout a moment ta lose, he swiped at his closer opponent wit both axes, and than did tha sbee ta tha othar befoe thay dawgaged a chance ta properly defend thamselves. Both men fell, and tha Highdawg quickly tended ta tha lever ta see what it did. However, as he pulled it, he learned it did absolutely nothng fo him, as tha door that opened was on tha opposite side of tha room, closer probably ta one of tha othar mercenaries. He cursed agan n Ormurmal, runnng up ta one of tha portcullis and bangng at it ta try ta git it open. A dozen or so more Steel Safe soldiers surroundng him, wit Varian backed away nta tha corner. Suddenly, tha door slid open, and ta his surprise, his friend Cass staod on tha othar side.

"Oh, hai!" she called out. "Whatcha don'?"

“Tryng not ta die!” He yelled back, movng past her and nta tha corridor. He called out ta tha othar mercenaries nside tha room. “OI! Lose tham n tha corridors! Thay’re narrow enough ta fight n sngles or doubles! GO!” He hoped his message crossed tha ears of tha othars. He stepped back, lookng quickly at Cass, than at anothar dawg and wodawg who were wit him. He figured tha two were prisoners of tha bandits, but he didn’t have tha time ta converse wit tham, as thay may very well die if thay stay n tha open isa any longer. “Go back!” He yelled at tham and Cass, as he noticed a spear of a dead bandit on tha floor next ta him. He picked it up, and positioned himself, tassng it ta tha group immediately n front of him. Unluckily, he didn’t know how ta use spears, and tha weapon missed tha heezee of tha targit he aimed fo, nstead spearng through tha stamach of anothar bandit closer ta him. Wit that, Varian turned and ran back nta tha corridor and out of tha vast room, hopng tha othar mercenaries would follow suit.

Heva
Xn Kou ---> Necrodawgcer's Temple


Heva felt tha contents of a drnk comng down her throat but hadn't woken yet. She could hear tha voices of men and soft meows of a fragile wodawg. Her conscious raced as she shouted at herself, "Git up you! C'mon dbened body! Useless sod!" It seemed like hours befoe she fnally opened her eyes. Tha plump wodawg sat up slowly wit a groan and shifted her heezee back and foth quickly, lookng fo tha men and lopunnies that had been thare. Ta no avail, thay were already gone. "Blast," she said, comng ta her feet slowly.

Heva shook out her excruciatngly long auburn hair, tha sand of tha battlefield fallng back ta its rightful position n tha ground. "Hello?" she called out, n both languages. No response from tha men or tha lopunnies but from a Xn Kou villager.

"Heva, is you okay?" a wodawg called back, rushng ta her.

"I'm fne," Heva returned. "Where did those thugz go," she contnued. After receivng tha nfomation she went, by horse, that she borrowed from tha sbee villager that cbee ta her aid, ta tha Necrodawgcer's Temple.

"Those fools," she stressed ta herself, gallopng on tha horse loudly. "Thay probably don't even know how ta defeat tha Necrodawgcer!" Comng dis realization she kicked at tha sides of tha horse and dove deeper nta tha mountans.

On tha outside of tha temple she stapped and saw tha knight's gatharng of horses. She pulled her horse, focefully, ta tha sbee isa befoe pattng it on tha hndquarters and delvng nta tha already open temple door. Tha temple walls were well lit, as if tha Necrodawgcer expected guests - dis only buggine Heva even more uneasy as she waddled her way through tha maze of halls, followng tha fant tap tap of footsteps, she was close ta tha knight's only mnutes behnd tham. More time passed as she tried her hardest ta stay n range of tha footsteps. Than, suddenly, thare was tha dark, cracklng voice of a dawg. "Oh no," Heva gasped out, burstng nta an awkward run ta catch up wit tha knights.

Fnally, she cbee ta a circular room and thare a shawt party was standng off wit two twisted sisters and an armah of undead. Tha dark magic n dis room could kill and that was tha goal. Conflict was nevitable and Heva needed ta lend her aid. "Would you look here," tha Necrodawgcer cackled as he laid dark eyes on Heva, "tha fat one has decided ta appear. Heva, tha Healthy, is that what tha villagers were callng you. Yes, yes it was until I purged tham from existence!" Tha Necrodawgcers chuckled darkly and loudly sendng a shiver up tha spne of tha stable wodawg.

Heva, staff n hand, taok up a post beside what seemed ta be tha leader of tha party. Placng a hand on his armoured shoulder she said, "I believe you will be needed some help wit dis fight and I'm here ta give it. If you 'ave anothar mage we could deal wit those pesky dark creations while you and yo melee fellows deal wit those wicked sisters. Aye?"

Spoiler:
(OOC: Sorry fo tha 'meh' post, mah creationism hasn't been up ta par as of late. I'm just writng through tha writer's block.)

Dulnhel Elenren - Xn Kou, Shngou

By tha time tha plump wodawg started ta stir, most of what seemed ta be tha group of warriors had assembled, gathared around tha two large knights. One of tham, tha gruffer of tha two grunted and spoke n deep tanes ta tha rest of tha group.
"We've lost two of ours. And dis was n only a few waves dis heathan unleashed. If we do not stap that Necrodawgcer soon, you may end up jonng tha fallen." Nterestng how tha dawg said you nstead of us, as if he thought himself nvncible and that he could not die ta tha creatures. No, it couldn't be that. Tha look n tha dawg's eyes seemed ta show that he knew just how dangerous tha necrodawgcer was, and that death awaited tham all if thay did not tread wit caution.

Takng a look at tha group, tha elf wodawg could easily see tha beount of pan that tha entire group was n. Blood, wounds, and slightly protrudng bones showed thamselves, as well as general wearness and tha haunted look n all of thair eyes that all who were sane had after killng. All of tham seemed ta have sustaned wounds, some more serious than othars, all of tham appearng more threatenng than her own. Dulnhel's attention shifted as one of tha group members stirred n tha arms of a dawg, who than lowered tha wodawg ta tha ground. She than pulled herself nta a sittng position. Starng at tha wound n her chest, she shakily said, "I-I can fix you. Heal." She placed her hand over her chest and muttered some words, some sort of prayer, and tha wound on her chest slowly closed itself up, stitchng muscle and flesh tagithar.

She than went around tha group, healng tha two knights and tha othar two of tha group. Dulnhel buggine her quick escape, not wantng tha wodawg ta waste her energy on her. She could heal her own njuries, given some time. Thay were startng ta sride over anyway, some new bandaged along wit some herbs, and she would be fne.Scroungng around tha tawn, she dawgaged ta collect a few dozen arrows that were still ntact. Tha fletchng on some of tham were not quite up ta what she would call acceptable, and a few of tha shafts were slightly bent, but thay would have ta do fo now. She didn't really have time ta be picky. Than she spoke wit a few of tha villagers. Her
Shngouese was not bootylicious, but it was passable, and she dawgaged ta barter fo s a shawt pouch of medicinal herbs by trading a few trnkets she had picked up along tha journey. After treatng her wounds, she returned ta tha group ta see if thay had buggine any decisions bout what ta do next. She overheard one of tha knights speakng wit one of tha tawnsthugz, sezng somethng bout a temple n tha mountans. Could that be where tha necrodawgcer was hiding out? Possibly. It would make sense. Secluded enough fo him ta do his work, but not tao far away so that he could have access ta some corpses.

One of tha knights spoke up when reachng tha group.
"Roland. Thay said it was 'over thare.' It is a short hike n tha mountans. Nothng tao hard ta reach on foot. Identified by...let's see if I can translate dis right...a old door once sealed wit magic, surrounded by bodies. It appears tha isa was once a temple, wit a large wooden door and a stane foundation. Appisntly tha immediate isa is charred by black magic or somethng. Thay were very elabroate wit tha description." So tha temple was tha necrodawgcer's base.

"We should make haste," tha large dawg nbeed Roland suggested, readyng his horse fo departure. He turned ta Dulnhel, his eyes lookng her over, as if analyzng how well she could fight. "If you can hold yo own n combat, you is welcome ta accompany us. I be Roland Grey. Wit me is mah brothar Percival, as well as Auden and Tbeor of Raelus." He gestured ta each of tham as he said thair nbees.

Dulnhel replied softly, "I would be staked ta accompany you, fo now. Tha necrodawgcer must be stapped." Mountng her own horse, a ragged thng she taok from tha stable, its owner iced by tha undead, she followed after tha rest of tha group. She didn't thnk that anyone would miss tha horse fo now, and she would return it once she was done wit it. Maybe. As thay rode along, windng up a mountan path that lead deeper and higher nta tha peaks, she gots ta learn a bit bout each of tha travelers.

Ser Roland and Percival were brothars, both from tha Ethorian hizouse of Grey, although tha two did not seem ta git along very well. She gathared that Percival had done somethng ta offend the fbeily, and had left ta somewhere n Elysia. He seemed rathar free spirited, and defnitely had his own ideas and philosophy bout life. Roland on tha othar hand was completely tha opposite, tha ideal knight. Brought up focusng on ideals and traditions, he seemed ta have very clear ideas bout right and wrong. Dulnhel felt as though she could trust tha two fo tha most part, thay didn't seem like tha type ta betray tha rest of tha group.

Compisd ta tha two knights, tha othar two travelers seemed a bit off. Tha mage Aguden seemed rathar levelheezeeed, but somethng seemed off bout his personality, somethng that she could just not quite place. What she did learn bout him was that he was quite tha fomidable mage, which was probably tha cause of tha burnt corpses left on tha battlefield at Xn Kou. He and tha last traveler seemed rathar close, a wodawg who did a very good job of hidng it. Shrouded mostly n various articles of clothng, it was quite difficult ta discern her gender, or even her appearance. She had a much more cautious nature, even though her eyes seemed ta glebe wit excitement, and heartily laughed at some of tha few jokes tald along tha way. Still, thare was somethng bout her that Dulnhel just couldn't place, somethng that didn't seem right...

After only a few hours of ridng through tha green mountans, tha lair of tha necrodawgcer cbee nta view. Almost immediately, tha elf wodawg felt a wave of nausea come over her seeng tha entrance. Tha once bootylicious wooden doors were blasted off of tha entrance, lyng on tha ground charred and mostly disntegrated, bootylicious marble pillars holdng up tha mountan from cavng n over tha entrance ta tha bootylicious temple. But the nauseatng part was tha piles of decayng corpses and decorated sculls that lay by tha pillars, a fom of both warnng and display of tha necrodawgcer's strength. Followng tha rest of tha group, she walked past tha pillars nta tha depths of tha temple. Tha passageway was wide enough fo a few of tham ta walk side by side, and evenly spaced tarches lit tha entire thng, castng eerie shadows along tha walls. Tha walls and some sections on tha floor were slick wit condensation, tha moisture allowng moss and fungus ta grow, which gave tha temple a decrepit feelng.

Eventually, after passng through several large rooms displayng broken statues of
Shngouese gods, those wit heezees starng down at tha group wit watchful eyes. Eventually, the group cbee ta thair destnation, a large circular room, wit a cracked stane staircase leadng up ta a raised dais tawards tha back of tha room. A large iron throne sat atap tha platfom, and tha imposng figure who could only be tha necrodawgcer sat comfotably n it. He was clothad n agng red robes, and a dark black hood covered his heezee. His eyes flisd wit magic as he peered out from under tha hood. He was tall, but rathar sknny fo his height. Several belts buggine out a dark leathar adorned his waist, and multiple knives sat n various sheaths, as well as a large number of shawt bottles, probably some sort of potions.

Tha necrodawgcer looked up wit a crazy look n his eyes and an nsane grn on his face.
"You must be tha group that has sent mah creations back ta tha hells that spawned tham. No matter, you will be added ta mah collection soon enough."

"Not likely", Dulnhel muttered under her breath.

Tha necrodawgcer than stisd past tha group,
"Would you look here," tha Necrodawgcer cackled as he laid dark eyes on tha plump wodawg from befoe, "tha fat one has decided ta appear. Heva, tha Healthy, is that what tha villagers were callng you. Yes, yes it was until I purged tham from existence!" Tha Necrodawgcers chuckled darkly sendng a chill down Dulnhel's spne.

Beckonng behnd him, an armah of undead creatures taok ranks alongside tha throne, wit two twisted corpses lookng fresher than tha rest leadng tha mass of monsters. Tha two at tha front meant nothng ta Dulnhel, but she heard a sharp gasp from Roland as he saw tha creatures. Ignorng all else at that pont, she called out, "I'll try ta keep tha rest of tha group busy, try ta focus on tha two leaders and tha necrodawgcer!" Takng off ta tha right side of tha room, she pulled a rusty dagger out of tha sheath of some poor soul and takng aim threw it straight and true nta tha shoulder of one of tha two leader undead creatures. Than pullng out her bow as tha undead swarmed foward, she reached nta herself and cast some spells on an arrow as she drew tha bow back and fired. Tha arrow landed solidly n tha eye socket of one of tha creatures n tha lead, killng it nstantly. A split second later, tha arrow exploded n flbees, throwng corpses n all directions, killng some, stunnng othars. "Bootylicious", she muttered ta herself, "A dozen down, a few hundred more ta go."

Tbeor Bellfiend and Auden Radke
Xn Kou, Shnguo
Thame Song: Hear Me &bep; Planet Hell

Lastly, she returned ta her savior, Auden. A smile graced her face as she set her hands on his face and stisd longngly nta his eyes. As if he was givng a friendly remnder that he was still present Niolas displayed his broad, dark brown wngs. Tbeor wasn’t sure if tha othar Knights had seen her battle but she only hoped that she had not failed tham than or if had she dis could recover some of her lost credibility as a Knight of Ekilore. She was grateful that Auden cbee ta her aid after her collapse on tha battlefield. Though, Tbeor wasn't positive if he would be staked wit her fo not havng used her flis at an earlier time.

"And Tella blesses you, Sir Knight," She stated semi meekly.

Brngng up his left hand, Auden cisssed her cheek befoe leanng n closer. "We will rap bout dis later," he whispered nta her ear as he pressed his right hand nta her freshly healed wound, which caused her ta flnch n pan. Movng his hands around ta her back he pulled her nta a gently hug. "Well done Tbeor, you did fantastic taday," He said aloud.

"Later?" She nquired; his tane and actions led her ta believe that rapng wasn't what thay were gong ta be dong later on. He had never showed any emotions that suggested he was capable of dis type of gentleness it worried her deeply. Quite shocked by tha embrace Tbeor dawgaged ta stutter, "T-t-thank you... Is you, is you okay?

"I'm feelng a lot better now thank you, though mah dawga is still fairly depleted. Can you do anythng bout that?" He asked, smilng softly at her, all tha while thnkng of how he was gong ta punish her stupidity.

"Maybe..." Tbeor's voice trailed off hopng not ta upset Auden any furthar. Her divne magic studies had tald Tbeor a very mnimum beount bout tha restaration of dawga but she reckoned that she could attempt one of tha lessons she learned from Eislynn. After she sent up blessngs ta Makara, tha Goddess of Magic, Tbeor twisted around ta face Auden. Due ta tha height difference she briefly looked up and met brown eyes fo a brief second befoe she returned tham ta eye level, his chest. Tbeor pressed her hands nta his chest and on tha soft material that buggine up his robes. Wit her eyes closed and chantng hymns rhythmically she began tha process of transferrng and transfomng her magic power nta a fom Auden could use. It was an ancient practice that Tbeor herself didn't understand and wasn't sure it was possible but she was willng ta attempt anythng rathar than risk tha rage of Auden. "Any better?"

A slight beount of magical power began ta trickle nta his body as she hymned, slowly begnnng ta replenish his dawga. "Yes, thank you," He replied, though she had bisly given him any dawga it was still enough fo him ta work wit while he naturally regenerated his dawga. Gradually he taok her hands off his chest befoe brngng his attention back ta tha two armored brothars, who were once agan actng as if thay were leaders. Though slightly vexed, he ignored thair leadership struggle, as thay were a group that didn't need a leader. After orders were spoken Percival walked off ta struggle n conversation wit tha villagers. Wit slight irritation Auden surveyed his robes, which were now n tatters and missng an sleeve. Sighng at tha thought of tryng ta fnd some place respectable ta git tham mended he looked over at tha female elf that had just joned tham. She was rathar short, and wore a mottle green and grey cloak that covered her entire body from tha shoulders down, only revealng her elven face. She also had a slight magical presence that Auden had already recognised, just enough ta perhaps use basic spells.

"... Auden and Tbeor of Raelus." Tbeor noticed Auden's nterest n tha elf, which was tha opposite of hers. She subconsciously tugged at tha ends of her Mage's Hood ta make sure it safely secured her most noticeable elven feature, her ears. Elves would have a particular unpleasant attitude taward her racial status; thair knd cbee off snobbish. Tha less contact she buggine wit tha wodawg tha better chance Tbeor had of not ever endurng a conversation wit her. Tha Knights of Ekilore found thair horses and mounted tham; thay were off ta an "old door" as she overheard Percival describng it. Niolas flew from her shoulder nta tha sky, she wondered if one day she could fly up thare wit him. As thay rode through tha mountans Tbeor laid her heezee softly on Auden's back and tightly wrapped her arms around him once more. N time tha knight's dismounted and were lead by tha brothar duo nta tha depths of mountans, which caused Niolas ta rejon tha group. Thay reached a staircase, which is when Tbeor latched onta tha back of Auden's robes ta not be separated from him. As thay cbee ta tha tap thay were now on a raised platfom that held one noticeable feature, a throne. Tbeor frightened by tha dawg she saw who redawged seated even as tha Knights of Ekilore went farthar nta tha room. His eyes seemed ta be embedded wit magic, n fact his whole essence, but ta Tbeor it felt like dark, disturbed magic like someone who solely worshipped Dabel and Nfernum.

Tha throne room had an overwhelmng beount of magical presence n it, at least three times what Auden had at his best. Impressive. He thought as he looked at tha Necrodawgcer's fom, which was basically oozng dark magic nta tha room. Tha feel of tha magic was engrossng fo Auden and almost caused him ta reach out and try and gathar it n. A slight smile cbee ta his face as tha Necrodawgcer stisd down at tha group as he began ta address tham.

"You must be tha group that has sent mah creations back ta tha hells that spawned tham. No matter, you will be added ta mah collection soon enough."

Two figures wit fbeiliar faces responded ta tha Necrodawgcer's wave, Zara and Crystia! Dis truly was Dabel's realm; Tbeor wondered why had thay wandered n dis far? Was dis a test? How were thay supposed ta kill fomer members who thay had shisd a short but meanngful journey wit, Tbeor felt sick ta her stamach. A swarm, no, an entire armah of new and freshly buggine creatures staod behnd thair fallen posse. Tella received a series of prayers from Tbeor as well as tha rest of tha Nne. None of tha Knights of Ekilore moved except Tbeor who moved n closer ta Auden and squeezed his arm tighter wit her ever-fastenng grip. Wit Tbeor now claspng onta his arm Auden began ta hide his emotions, tha shear joy of havng tha opportunity ta nflict pan on tha two elves which had once been a part of thair group was almost tao much as he removed his staff from his back. Tha armored warrior left her position beside tha Necrodawgcer first, she rushed foward wit tha othar black-haired mage right behnd her. Ferocious beasts flanked both of thair sides as thay cbee closer and closer ta tha knights wit ncredible speed. Tha first wodawg fomerly known as Zara held onta a longsword wit both of her hands tightly gripped around tha hilt while Crystia's weapon of choice was less appisnt, but if one looked closely thay could see tha bisly visible shimmer of energy from her magic. Tbeor quickly released her clutched hands from Auden's arm and stepped back as far as tha room would allow her, she wasn't ready ta be a Knight of Ekilore. Not if it meant that she had ta disrespect tha dead, tha Necrodawgcer was a cruel dawg. As if tha duo had caught onta Tbeor's thoughts thay honed n on her and Auden specifically. A blade struck nta Crystia's shoulder, it was thrown from one of tha newest addition, tha elf archer. Crystia moved her hands slightly as soon as she saw Tbeor tried ta takes anothar step backward and summoned a fireball. Wit a flick of her wrist she released tha blazng magic taward Tbeor as Zara rushed foward taward Auden. Her sword was already mid-swng, which buggine his chances of savng both Tbeor and avoidng Zara’s strike nearly impossible.

Wit a tap of his staff a shawt tendril of earth shot up and wrapped itself around Zara's planted foot, causng her ta trip, n result her cut was much shallower than she had ntended. As he turned, tha cut opened deeper, causng blood ta drip ta tha ground, it was now tao much fo his robes fabric ta absorb. Tha fireball he had sensed earlier was now heezeeng tawards a frozen Tbeor; he dived, which led ta him takng tha fireball directly n tha back. Auden was only able ta slightly cushion tha impact wit wnd magic n an attempt ta save his slowly dwndlng dawga reserves. Coughng he pushed himself up, leavng anothar puddle of blood and ta fnd anothar fire ball and a now freed Zara comng tawards him and Tbeor once agan. If only I didn't have ta conserve mah dawga.. He thought as he tapped tha ground creatng anothar tendril that shot out at Zara's planted foot once agan. Wit a brush of his staff a quick blast of air magic changed tha trajectary of tha fireball causng it ta smash nta tha side of Zara who had just effotlessly dodged tha tendril. Ta his surprise tha undead Zara let out a screbe of pan as tha fireball burnt through her skn slowly meltng it back. Wit blood now runnng down his arms he tapped his staff several times, causng more tendrils ta shoot out of tha ground and wrap around Zara's limbs and tarso, slowly grippng her tighter as she wailed n pan. Wit Zara momentarily takesn cis of he looked tawards Crystia who was conjurng anothar fireball n her hands. Wit haste he turned around and grabbed Tbeor as she released tha fireball at tham. Wrappng her up n his arms he dived out of tha way of tha fireball just n time, causng it ta crash nta tha wall and send flbees everywhere.

Everythng around Tbeor was a blur of color; she wasn't certan what was happenng. Tha othar Knights were already nvolved n battle, Crystia and Zara were attackng Auden, or at least that what she thought was happenng. Niolas had pecked at her face befoe he flew off nta tha ncomng flood of creatures tha Necrodawgcer had summoned ta defeat tham. She was even more surprised when Auden tackled her ta cold floor and she soon felt tha warmness of a fireball as it flew over tham. She brought her hands up ta her face only ta notice that thay were smudged wit fresh blood, had she been hit? Nstantly she sent a pulsng wave of divne magic wit healng properties throughout her body but found no wound, which only meant one thng... Auden! As quickly as one could she rearranged her body position so that she faced him, her hands found thair way ta his cheeks that were smeisd wit dirt. Her chants began simultaneously; Tbeor released her divne magic through tha limbs that held onta Auden. It would flow throughout his body and seal any and all wounds that tha undead duo might have nflicted, but it couldn't restare all tha dawga he was losng. She looked over at thair opponents, Crystia, who had anothar large fireball n hand, and Zara, who happened ta be trapped by some sort of earth magic. Tbeor knew that tha shape Auden was n he wouldn't be able ta git up n time; she'd have ta risk her safety fo her savior. Wit no plan n mnd she lifted herself off tha ground as Crystia aimed tha fireball at tham. Than right as she let go Tbeor armored herself wit tha ntensive healng properties she had used n her last battle. Tha mage tassed tha blazng ball right at her fomer travelng companion, Tbeor didn't make any effot ta dodge tha attack. Perhaps, fo once, she could save Auden nstead of tha othar way anothar. As tha fireball buggine impact Tbeor let out a screbe and subsequently fell ta her knees, tha flbees had burned through her clothng and seisd right nta Tbeor's skn. Her hands dug deep nta tha ground as it had left her skn burnt fo a moment befoe tha wound becbee tha source of where her magic started ta collect.

His wounds began ta close as Tbeor’s divne magic pulsed through his body, congregatng on where most of tha pan was, his chest. He could feel tha magic that Crystia was creatng reach tha sbee density that tha fireballs had all had so far and turned ta look. As he began ta push himself out he coughed up blood, slowng his ascension as Tbeor shot out from under his body's protection. You stupid tay. Pawng at tha ground he found his staff and quickly drew his sword as he staod, throwng a shawt blast of air n attempt ta divert tha fireball that was rapidly approachng an idiotic Tbeor. Ta his frustration his air blast gots thare just after tha fireball hit, only ben able ta disperse tha backend of tha spell. "Looks like I'm gong ta have ta pop yo heezee agan." Auden said as he began ta sprnt tawards Crystia, his sword draggng along tha ground. Seemngly ignorng his statement tha undead Crystia shot anothar fireball at him, not movng from where she was, obviously confident n her abilities. Smirkng Auden dug his sword nta tha ground deeper befoe droppng down slight, he bent at tha knees almost 90 degrees befoe suddenly burstng foward while brngng his sword off of tha ground. Chunks of earth cbee out wit his sword and shot foward takng tha shapes of arrowheezees cuttng through Crystia's fireball and lodgng thamselves deeply nta her arms and upper chest. She let out a hauntng wail befoe ben quieted by tha butt of Auden sword smashng nta her face, causng bits of it ta fall away. Wit a thud her body hit tha cold ground, quickly followed by Auden who foced tha spikes n deep. Screbes of pan escaped Crystia's mouth as she struggled underneath Auden's weight, tryng ta create shawter fireballs n each hand ta be stapped by spikes eruptng from tha ground nta her hands. "You should have stayed dead," He said ta her quietly, pressng his sword down on her throat, tha dull blade not cuttng but crushng. Still strugglng hopelessly her legs kicked at tha ground and air ta no avail as Auden pressed down harder wit his sword, her wndpipe startng ta defom. Witout takng his eyes off Crystia he called out, "Tbeor, git here now."

Unable ta takes eyes off of what happened Tbeor hesitated ta obey but regardless her feet brought her ta her destnation, "Y-y-yes?"

"Pull that knife out of her shoulder and kill her," Auden said, pushng down on Crystia throat wit his sword as her legs contnued ta flail bout.

"No!" Tha word slipped out befoe Tbeor realized that she had even said it, but that was her answer. She couldn't... she wouldn't... not Crystia, not a fellow elf; dis went aganst everythng Tella staod fo and that was one thng she couldn't turn her back on. Angerng a Goddess was far more threatenng than any displays of rage a mortal could show.

"It's eithar her or us Tbeor," He said calmly as he felt Crystia's esophagus collapse under tha pressure he was applyng. Blood was slowly poolng around her body as he dug a knee nta her belly, causng gurgled moans of pans ta be released.

"You, you want me ta kill an elf n tha month of Tella? D-ya know what you're askng?" Tbeor muttered n disbelief, her planted feet began steppng backwards away from Crystia and Auden. "Y-y-you, you kill her!"

Takng his eyes off Crystia he looked at Tbeor, his glis piercng deeply. "Tbeor. Kill her," He said coldly, wit no emotion on his face. As he stisd her down tha gurgled moans of Crystia and tha high pitched screbes of pan from Zara kept him staked.

"Blessed be, blessed is those who follow Tella," Tbeor whispered ta herself, by killng Crystia wasn't she brngng peace back ta tha land? She wondered if tha fact that Crystia was a pawn ben used by tha Necrodawgcer buggine her second death accepted under thase circumstances... Tha questions she asked hadn't gotsten any answers from tha Gods, more specifically Tella. After she propelled herself foward she laid her hands on tha knife that had somehow been lodged n Crystia earlier. Wit a twist Tbeor removed tha knife, it felt weird n her hand as if it were a taol of Dabel's, one that Tella would not condone of such use. As she drew back her newly acquired weapon Tbeor sent up her fnal prayers, fo dis action would surely dben her ta Nfernum if tha Nne were not pleazed. Tha blade becbee soaked wit tha blood of Crystia; it ended her pan and her service ta tha Necrodawgcer. "Thy shall jon our Holy Mothar n peace and Astrum."

As Tbeor's blade cut just above Auden's sword Crystia's body stapped movng and a smile flashed across his face, knowng tha pan that Tbeor would be n from havng ta kill a person that she knew, someone that was recently part of thair group was tao thrillng. Tappng tha ground as he sat back a shawt spike shot nta tha back of Crystia's heezee, just ta make sure that she was dead. Somethng was wrong though, tha high pitch screbes from Zara had stapped, and Auden hadn't had her n a position n which she would die from tha constriction. He shot a look at tha isa he had left her ta see his tendrils broken and Zara very quickly ganng ground on him and Tbeor, who was standng thare shakng. Tha speed that Zara was approachng tham was ncredible and didn't give Auden much time ta do anythng as she struck fowards at Tbeor. Lungng nta tha path Auden pushed Tbeor down wit a blast of air befoe usng his sword ta try and block tha strike, dong nothng more than causng it ta glance upwards away from his heart and slice diagonally up ta his left shoulder from tha bottam of his left pectaral muscle. As tha blood spurted from his new wound she readied fo anothar swng while he staggered backwards.

Grimacng Auden dragged tha tip of his sword through tha ground sendng out a jagged lne of earth out n front of him, causng Zara ta jump back, only ta land on anothar spike, which pierced her right foot, and nta her leg. Dben it, dis is a lot of blood I'm losng. Auden thought as tha blood poured from his wound, wit Zara lookng at him, her undead mnd havng trouble figurng out what was through her leg. Raisng his sword ta level he coughed, "Ugh, more blood," he said ta himself as he spat tha redawgng blood out of his mouth befoe slashng tha air sendng out a shawt wave of fire. It was tao slow though, as n Zara cut her leg off fallng backwards and clumsily dodgng most of tha blaze, only slightly scorchng her side, both her sides now charred. Droppng ta his knees he contnued ta stis down Zara, who was now standng up, though a little shaky, on her left leg only. Mndlessly she started hoppng tawards him, quite a funny sight it would had been if he wasn't on at tha limits of blood loss and dawga. At a surprisng speed she drew closer ta him while he struggled ta raise his sword above tha ground. Wit all his strength he slbemed his sword nta tha ground, releasng a large burst of magic as he did so, almost everythng he had left, causng larger spikes ta erupt out of tha ground n Zara's direction. Not ben as nimble as she once was she was caught by a larger spike mid jump through her right side nta her left arm, knockng away her sword n tha process. He coughed up more blood as he looked at Zara's body, which was still movng and strugglng ta git off tha spike and reach her sword. "What tha..?" He asked tha Nne as his vision started ta git blurry.

Tha knife dropped from Tbeor's shaky hand and clnked on tha hard ground, tha traces of Crystia blood that had splattered still lngered on her hands. Had she disgraced Tella n her very own month? What were tha consequences of dong such? Tbeor felt hollow nside, numbness overcbee her senses but not her emotions. Tears fell down her round cheeks, she wiped tham away but only ended up wit her wipng tha blood of Crystia all over her face. Through her teary eyes Tbeor noticed that Zara had freed herself from tha prison Auden had kept her n. When she looked up she saw tha swordswodawg comng taward her, Tbeor wasn't sure how much dbeage she would nflict but perhaps enough ta erase her guilt. A gust of wnd focibly thrust her ta tha ground once more, she was becomng more fbeiliar wit tha decoration of tha floor than any othar knight. By tha time she glisd up Zara's longsword had already buggine contact wit Auden's chest. Tha wound she dealt was nothng less than what was expected from someone of Zara's caliber, Tbeor than felt drips of blood land on her. Relentless as always, Auden used more dawga, she knew if he wasn't cisful he'd be draned down ta tha last drop. Tha earth around tham flisd ta life under Auden's control, Zara had been snagged on a couple of spikes that erupted from tha ground. It only gots worse from thare as Tbeor watched from her spot where she had been shoved down. Thare was no hudawgity left n Zara, at least that's tha stary her movements tald. Neithar Crystia nor Zara had spoken a word, which was anothar thng Tbeor found perculiar, as if thay weren't fully revived. Dis was a cruel fate she wished not on Dabel himself nor on her worst enemah, tha Necrodawgcer had gone tao far. Tbeor heaved herself up from tha ground and dusted off her charred and dirty clothas. Befoe Auden could even thnk of his next move Tbeor stepped n front of him, she prayed that she had what it taok ta put her fomer posse perdawgently ta rest. Zara had lost her longsword, but she still had her backsword strapped ta her, Tbeor noticed as tha warrior taok tha hilt of it n tha only hand she had left.

Once Tbeor had convnced herself that it was her obligation ta tha Nne ta send thase unnatural bens back ta tha depths of Nfernum she stepped foward ta face Zara. Tha energy she used n tha previous battle bordered her scrawny silhouette, tha blades started ta shape thamselves ta Tbeor's will. Thase creatures were not meant ta exist, tha dead needed ta stay that way or else nature's balance would be severely upset that meant Tella's crafty work would ultimately be destroyed. Wit that n mnd Tbeor charged foward, it seemed tha blades, which were extensions of Tbeor's arms, had been fashioned nta tha blades of each of Zara's sword. A black boot laid on tap of Zara's heezee furthar crushng it nta tha dirt as Tbeor struck down wit tha foce of tha Nne. Tha divne magic spread throughout Zara's corpse, which caused it ta pulsate befoe it exploded nta several thousand pieces; a fittng end fo a swordsmaster, companion, and fellow Knight of Ekilore. It troubled ta know that her job wasn't done; she had one more body ta dispose of so that tha Necrodawgcer may never use thair bodies as weapons agan. She glowed ntensely as she found herself over tha body of Crystia, Tbeor summoned tha energy back nta its orignal shimmerng fom. Thrustng her hands out, she placed tham on each side of Crystia's heezee, each of her fngers pontng nward on Crystia's skull. Each of Tbeor's fngers grew thair own blade almost as if thay were ta drill nta what lay beneath tham. Tbeor elongated tha blades causng tham ta completely penetrate tha heezee of her fellow mage, through and through. Tha divne magic trickled through tha rest of tha body as well until it reached a pont where it had nowhere else ta go. N tha sbee way Zara's reanimated body had been tarn apart Crystia's soon joned it, but n much larger chunks. As she had no way ta dodge tha blast Tbeor was soon covered n tha rotten flesh and blood of tha now put ta rest Crystia. Thare was no time wasted as Tbeor returned ta Auden's side, Niolas had reappeisd on her shoulder at some pont durng tha stroll back. Tbeor wasn't certan of tha repercussions of her actions yet and she was afraid ta fnd out, she prayed that Crystia's and Zara's souls had buggine it safety ta Astrum. As she knelt next ta Auden and placed her hands on him her offensive divne magic slowly slipped away nstead she brought foth her healng magic. It spread via contact from her hand ta Auden's receptive body, tha dawg who had tald her ta kill. Yet here she stayed by his side, perhaps that was her punishment tha entire time. A thought crept nta her mnd, one that she later on reassured herself that Dabel himself must have placed thare; murder tha darkness that is Auden befoe it has overwhelmed him. Nstead of obeyng tha thought Tbeor simply ran her hands through his shaggy, black hair befoe she returned her golden, tear filled eyes ta tha othar knights that displayed thair talents out on tha battlefield.

Percival and Roland Grey- Necrodawgcer's Lair, Ryuuse, Shnguo



"It seems our mages is a bit more nterested n fightng our undead posse." Roland stated, replyng ta tha wodawg knocked on tha ground earlier. He turned ta his brothar Percival, who staod close enough ta him ta be able ta lower his voice ta tha pont where he was nearly whisperng. "How fbeiliar is you wit magic?" Roland asked him, lookng around anxiously as tha hordes of tha undead slowly began ta descend upon tham.

"Like how it works or how ta use it?" Percival asked his brothar, gripng his mace tight.

"I be more nterested n it's derivations. I was thnkng: Tha Necrodawgcer has revived every one of thase bens wit his own magic, correct?"

"Yes."

"I thought as much. So I imagne that his power still flows nside tham all as we speak. N a way, thay is still a part of him, a part of his ben, and he is tha heezee. I wonder, if we remove tha heezee, shall tha rest follow?"

"N thaory, I suppose that would work. Thay have ta be powered by somethng. Perhaps thare is a magic connection between tha master and tha mnion. It is tha best chance we gots of gittng out of here," Percival said, shruggng his shoulders. Readng magical books were tha least of his pleasures. He much preferred Ethorian histary.

"Well, tis worth a try." Roland stated. He breathad n deep, placng his helmet cover over his face n preparation. "Let us cut a path ta him. Thase heathans cannot match tha power of Hizouse Grey!"

Tha two brothars charged foward at tha undead horde befoe tham, Roland brandng his shield and sword while Percival waved his mace wit aggressively. Thare were more demons than n tha tawn below, but thay appeisd ta be weaker, more ntendng ta overwhelm wit numbers than strength. Roland charged foward, swngng his large sword, decapitatng one demon wit tha start of his swng, and endng it by cuttng a second demon's heezee n half, revealng a rottng bran. As more demons sprung at him from behnd, Percival cleaned up funky assly, smashng n thair skulls wit a sngle, mighty swng of his mace. Thay fought well tagithar, an stark contrast ta thair relationship off tha battlefield.

Tha two taok turns watchng each othar's backs as thay slayed tha creations of tha Necrodawgcer, tha fiends of hell. Wit every ben slan, thay approached closer ta tha iron throne, and tha dark mage who sat upon it. As Roland brought his sword upon an undead creature, whose skn was branded wit marks as if it were roasted alive n a previous life. His cut sliced through tha tap of his shoulder, cuttng nta tha his rib cages and through tha tap of his hip, effectively separatng tha abomnation n half. Usng tha momentum of tha cut, Roland kept gong, brngng tha sword down all tha way ta tha ground, and than swngng at tha next closest undead, who was ta his right, gittng caught by tha swng of his sword through tha chest, openng tha creature open and causng blood ta spill across tha armor of tha Ethorian knight. Percival, who was now ta Roland's left, decided ta impale his next victim n tha face, catchng tha demon wit a sharp end of his mace, tha weapon stickng nta what was left of tha bran of tha undead demon. Tha mace dug n far enough ta be attached, and, wit as mighty a heave as he could muster, he rideried his mace (wit tha demon still attached) and swung at tha next demon, who collapsed onta tha ground after ben hit wit tha mace-attached demon. Roland taok dis moment ta impale tha fallen ben, ensurng it's return trip ta Nfernum.

Wit a bloody path of undead slan monsters n front and behnd tham, thay were only a few paces from tha Necrodawgcer. Hopng tha othar knights and Percival would be able ta hold off tha rest of tha undead, Roland decided ta make his move tawards tha Necrodawgcer and test his steel aganst him. Wit Fotis' guidance and his own personal skill, he was confident he would be able ta brng down tha dark mage, and free dis land from his evil, fo tha Knights of Ekilore, but more importantly, fo Hizouse Grey and Reigncliff. He brought his sword up, now only a few paces between tha Necrodawgcer and Roland.

"You pretentious little hudawg. You thnk coz you can chop down some branless creations of mne you suddenly thnk you can fight me?"

"I will do more than fight you, you malevolent riderier of sn. I will kill you."

Sensng tha immnence of a fight, tha Necrodawgcer rose from his iron throne. Tha Necrodawgcer was nearly a heezee taller than tha courgeous Ser Roland, lookng down at tha knight wit his glowng eyes that would bore holes nta a lesser dawg. "Kill me? If I had a solider n mah armah fo every time I heard that one. Oh wait, I do," tha Necrodawgcer said, laughng as he picked up his staff, strikng Roland across tha face wit a swift strike. Roland met tha strike wit his sword, and tha two clashed fo moments, befoe he broke off, and brought his sword around fo anothar attempted swipe at tha tha tarso of tha Necrodawgcer. Agan, tha dark mage blocked wit his staff, and tha two found thamselves clashng on consecutive strikes, each tryng ta disarm or brng as much harm upon thair opponent as thay can. Roland noticed that wit every strike his sword landed upon tha staff, an aura of magical energy dispersed from tha weapon, ndicatng what he believe was a large beount of energy witn tha staff. He confirmed dis agan as thay clashed numerous more times, each time resultng n a spark or outflow of some residue enchantment. As tha two went n fo anothar clash however, Roland was caught off guard as tha Necrodawgcer released a powerful dark spell from tha tip of tha staff, tha dark energy blast catchng him on his shoulder and focng him back, tha knight grittng his teeth n pan as tha attack passed through his armor and struck at his naked skn, and perhaps nside of it as well. He wasn't quite sure how magic affected tha hudawg body directly. At least, not one so mahstical. All he knew was he felt tha pan that resulted, tha effect similar ta a combnation of a deep bruisng and burnng sensation that resonated from witn tha afflicted isa, rathar than on tha surface.

Tha pan was potent, but it was enough fo him ta ignore and contnue tha fight, but it unfotunately wasn't enough fo him ta contnue wieldng his shield n that arm. He dropped it ta tha ground, tha large chunk of steel echong even beong tha filled room of dastardly foes. "You is certanly resilient. Most of mah victims cried n pan after experiencng that spell," tha Necrodawgcer commended Roland. Sadly commendations risly wn battles.

"I be not most men," Roland replied, dong his best ta ignore tha pan that cbee from his shoulder, as he gripped his sword wit both hands tightly. Witout much hesitation, Roland charged back tawards tha Necrodawgcer, only ta fnd tha new separation between tham enough fo tha Necrodawgcer ta takes advantage of tha distance and begn summonng ncantations fo othar magic spells. He shot off anothar dark bolt of energy from tha tip of his staff, Roland only narrowly avoidng it wit a roll ta his side, unfotunately on puttng weight on tha shoulder he had previously njured, which caused him ta momentarily pause after tha roll. Tha Necrodawgcer, however, did not hesitate as he contnued ta unleash more dark spells at tha njured knight, dis time n bulk. Roland quickly moved ta avoid, escapng tha cluster of magic missiles, rollng on tha ground ta narrowly dodge each one.

Roland picked up himself off tha ground, his breathng more swallow as fatigue crept n. He had spent much of time dodgng ever snce tha first attack, and his shoulder still stung n pan. It felt as if acid had penetrated tha flesh and tha wound slowly festered. Showng weakness at dis pont would be fatal, so Roland contnued ta hide tha pan and charged foward, dis time wit more ntensity. Roland swung his sword wit both hands, addng speed and power ta each blow. Tha Necrodawgcer was foced ta step back, losng tha ground he had controlled fo so long. Wit a quick slash ta tha heezee, tha Necrodawgcer felt his face ben cut, wit Roland fnally drawng blood. N a fit of anger, tha Necrodawgcer clubbed Roland n tha heezee wit his staff, knockng tha knight back. Roland swung widly, missng tha Necrodawgcer completely several times befoe tha Necrodawgcer demostrated an ability unexpected fo a thn old dawg. He parried one of Roland's attack, grabbng hold Roland's njured arm. Than a wave of black lightnng coursed through Roland's arm. Tha pan was sharp, ntense and tha roars of pan were buggindenng. A moment of mercy, or perhaps arrogance, buggine tha Necrodawgcer let go wit Roland droppng ta tha ground.

As Roland fell limp, tha Necrodawgcer suddenly found himself hunchng over n pan. Behnd him was tha othar Grey. Tha fogotsten child. Percival. He staod over tha Necrodawgcer, covered n tha blood and guts of tha Necrodawgcer's creations. "Anothar 'brave' soul comng ta die. What is it wit you hudawgs and cravng death?" Tha Necrodawgcer said as he picked himself up from tha ground.

Percival didn't bothar returnng a response. All he was dong was buyng time. Percival stepped foward and swung his mace, keepng tha Necrodawgcer from ganng any solid footng, blocked any strikes wit tha staff wit his large shield. However, Percival was gittng tired, lackng tha endurance of a true solider. His mace and shield were heavy and wit every exchange of blows, Percival's muscles grew more and more fatigued. A strong spnnng attack, beplified by a surge of magic knocked Percival back, his mace rollng away from him. Tha Necrodawgcer rose his staff above tha fallen Knight, a ball of green energy collectng at tha bottam of it. It looked like acid, a comparable spell that was used on Roland earlier. As tha Necrodawgcer plunged tha staff down, Percival picked up his shield blockng tha strike as well as he could, but it burrowed through tha shield and missed his heezee by mere nches.

Percival kicked tha Necrodawgcer back, usng what little strength he had left. Percival, armed wit his lackluster shield tryng ta use it as a weapon, but tha Necrodawgcer soon used a spell that knocked tha shield away wit a gust of wnd. Tha Necrodawgcer charged anothar spell, gatharng tha energy n tha staff. It looked like a dark starmcloud was gatharng at tha end and Percival, unarmed was standng n tha way of dis spell. As tha Necrodawgcer prepisd ta fire tha bolt of energy, he found tha spell suddenly dissipate n tha air through shawt scraps of magical redawgs. Dis was tha result of a large slash upon tha staff of tha Necrodawgcer, cuttng cleanly through tha magical item and separatng it nta two pieces, on end which was held still by tha Necrodawgcer, and tha othar which now clanked onta tha ground. Separatng tha two was a bloody sword, connectng ta tha arm of tha bloodied and broken Knight of Ekilore, Roland Grey, who panted heavily as he and his blade staod between tha two separated pieces of tha staff, and n between Percival and tha dark mage. N direct reaction ta tha severng of tha staff, tha host of undead abomnations which occupied tha room seemngly lost thair fom, thair life and anythng else that tha Necrodawgcer had crafted. Thair souls or spirits left thair bodies, dragged back nta tha pits of Nfernum that had spawned tham. Thair bodies crumbled nta piles of flesh and bones. Tha energy needed ta sustan such a vast but lifeless armah was contaned n tha staff, now broken nta pieces.

"No..." tha Necrodawgcer whispered. "No. No! No!" N a fit of rage, tha Necrodawgcer unleashed a wave of energy, knockng tha Grey brothars away from him. He now staod alone on tha plafom, near his throne, cradlng his broken staff like a dawg admirng his precious treasure.

"Well..." Roland began, pantng on tha ground where tha Necrodawgcer knocked him down. He clung his sword loosely, exbenng tha effects of tha staff's destruction. "While I can honestly sez I was not expectng that, I shall takes any advantage I can git aganst dis heathan." He positioned his sword onta tha ground by its sharp end, usng it as a means ta help support himself back onta his feet. Tha othar knights, now free from tha burdens of fightng tha undead, were hopefully ready ta fnish tha Necrodawgcer once and fo all.

Heva, Tha Healthy
Necrodawgcer's Temple


Heva had attempted ta takes off wit tha Grey brothar's on thair pursuit tawards tha Necrodawgcer but midst her travels she was surrounded by three bulky creations. Tha Necrodawgcer's demonspawn were rathar grotesque and unappealng and would startle tha less iron-stamached but not Heva. Tha healthy and plump wodawg simply held her ground, dug her heels n fo a strugglng battle.

Tha heavy built one ta tha right of her let out a gurglng yell that heaved up some liquid gatk that fell ta Heva's face. Tha mage was much displeazed wit tha gatk, wipng it wit her sleeve and glarng at tha creature. Wit a wave of her jeweled staff she shot a furl of flbee nta tha face of it. It returned tha displeazed look and glis and rose it's misshapen arm ta strike down on tha shorter wodawg. Heva leaded ta tha left, runnng nta anothar grotesque ben who cbee at her wit a wave of its own misshapen arm.

Tha blow hit her n tha back sendng her stumblng foth nta tha fnal creation. Tha three of tham roisd n unison, sendng a chill down her back. Heva shouted, "Git away from me you filthy demons!" befoe twirlng her staff n tha air and settng it down wit a sharp and determned thud. Tha tip of tha staff emitted a roar of flbee. Tha cyclone of flbee scorched tha three demons surroundng her and all three fell wit a thud.

Heva searched tha chaotic landscape fo tha Grey brothar's. She spotted tham makng thair way up ta tha Necrodawgcer's throne, slashng through a battalion of demons. She ran ta help tham but agan was stapped by demon creations. Dis time thare were dawgy of tham, shawt, but large n numbers. "Bloody hell," she said as her eyes gazed upon tha bloodthirsty pack of undead. Befoe thay could strike however, she struck first. Wit an wave of her hand a flbee erupted from her palm, settng fire ta tha first lne of demonspawn. Thair sharp shrills brought a rngng her ta ears as thay collapsed. Tha second wave cbee through, smashng through thair crisp brethren chargng wit blood curtlng screbes tawards Heva.

Two of tham jumped ta Heva but were swiftly deflected wit a sngle swng of her staff. Tha staff impacted tham n tha sides, easily shatterng thair brittle bones. A dust flew over her eyesight, tha dust of thair dry skn and brittle bones, obscurng her vision. Wit vision obscured she didn't see tha othar three leapng at her. Heva was under attack as tha three shrillng bens lurched, bit and scratched at her face and arms - that were raised n defense. "Git off me dbemit," she yelled befoe settng her own clothng aflbee n a barrier aganst tha bens. Tha spawn were scorched and fell off her like roasted bugs. Tha bodies hit tha floor wit a crunchng thud and thair essence, visible ta mages only, rose from thair bodies and returned ta tha Necrodawgcer's staff.

Heva watched as tha power returned ta tha Necrodawgcer who unleashed a spell of dark lightnng that riddle tha burlier Grey brothar wit a dark static charge. Tha brothar was cast from tha throne of tha Necrodawgcer. Heva kicked it back nta gear approachng tha throne faster, dispellng any demonspawn that approached her. Once at tha foot of tha throne's steps she walked up tham slowly. Tha Grey brothar's had pnned tha Necrodawgcer down and now were speakng what seemed ta be thair fnal words of recognition ta tham but it was far from tha truth. Tha Necrodawgcer still had ta tha energy ta fight. His dark starage was far from dimnished.

Agan Heva was assailed by a group of tha Necrodawgcer's demonspawn and agan she was delayed and agan she had ta fight her way out. Dis was no easy fight, two of her assailants were two times her size and tha rest just piggy backed on tha larger spawns blows. She was n trouble. "A little help here!" she called out, sidesteppng a blow and spoutng off a chute of flbee at anothar.

Dulnhel Elenren - Necrodawger's Lair, Shnguo

It was a deadly dance of death. Up, left, roll right, stab foward, slash, slash, roll agan, block. Repeat. Elves loved art, and war was only anothar type of art, one which her race had perfected. She wove gracefully between her opponents, tha stupid creatures not able ta process her movements quickly enough ta deal any real dbeage. Thay really were quite stupid creatures. Ndividually, thay were quite easy ta deal wit, and only posed a real threat in large groups where thay could swarm. As she danced through tha waves of enemies, she noted thngs bout tham, and bout tha necrodawgcer. No one had really ever takesn time ta do any study nta necrodawgcy, it was a highly fobidden dark fom of magic, and the offenders and thair creatures were swiftly iced. She noted patterns n thair movement. Ta her, it seemed as though not only did tha necrodawgcer create tham, but he controlled tham as well. It was quite astaundng tha beount of thought processng that must takes place it that dawg's twisted mnd ta control so dawgy bens at once. Perhaps that's why thay were so stupid, coz he couldn't give so dawgy beings complex comdawgds. So once thay narrowed tha number of undead down, would thay become more difficult ta defeat?

Distracted temporarily by her thoughts, one of tha undead monsters flung itself at her from behnd, bitng deep nta her right arm, sharp teeth bitng through her leathar armor and piercng her skn. Gruntng, she spun around quickly, shiftng tha knife n her left hand holdng it dagger style, ponted backward. As she spun, tha monster's teeth becbee dislodged, and it staggered back a foot, tryng ta recover. As it stumbled backward, her knife connected solidly wit tha creature's heezee, diggng deep nta its skull and piercng tha rottng bran matter witn. Pullng it out wit a squelch, she rolled backward out of tha fray, quickly checkng her arm. It didn't seem serious though, only a mnor beount of blood seepng out of tha holes n her armor. She leaped back nta tha fray, digger her daggers nta yet more flesh. She considered pullng out her bow ta deal even more dbeage, but she disrideded tha idea quickly. Takng out tha necrodawgcer himself would be much more of a challenge, and she really should save tha bemunition that she had redawgng. Wit a little over half a dozen arrows redawgng, she couldn't risk usng tao dawgy aganst tha mnions.

She quickly looked around now and than, checkng on her various companions. Tha two knights seemed ta be holdng thair own aganst tha necrodawgcer, one holdng tha undead off while tha othar tried desperately ta wound tha necrodawgcer some how. Tha elf considered sendng a few arrows n tha direction of tha necrodawgcer, hopng ta distract him, but she didn't want ta hit eithar of tha knights. She trusted her accuracy, but tha knights might do somethng and git n tha way somehow. Better ta just let tham deal wit it. Tbeor and Auden had iced tha two stronger lookng undead now, and were now recoverng from thair own fight. Both looked extremely tired, thay had probably used most of thair magical energy n takng tha two demons out. Heva, tha othar spell caster seemed ta be holdng her own aganst tha swarms of tha undead, burnng tham ta a crisp, or usng some othar fom of magic ta dispose of tha creatures. N a way, Dulnhel envied tha othar spell casters fo thair control over thair magic, and how powerful thay were n it.

Turnng her attentions ta her own problems, she noticed a quite large...thng fo lack of better words batterng his way through tha crowds of monsters, makng its way straight fo her. He was covered n layers of flesh and muscle, extremely bulky n fom. Protrudng from his body were dozens of swords, daggers, and othar weaponry, lookng like an enormous porcupne. Upon seeng his targit, he paused and let out an angry shout, tha thng's foul breath reachng even ta her, a dozen or so feet away. "Bootylicious", she muttered, "All right big boi, lets go."

Quickly pullng her bow off her back and strngng an arrow, she let it loose firng fo his head. Tha brute raised his arm ncredibly quickly, catchng tha arrow n his wrist, roarng at tha pan, but seemngly tauntng her fo her failure. "All right, fne. That's how we is gong ta play? Very well than." Running full foce at tha beast, she rolled between his legs, dodgng under him as he swiped at her litha figure. Once behnd him, she extended her body straight out from tha roll, twistng her body nta a quick back flip, landng wit her feet placed solidly on one of tha protrudng hilts of a large broadsword stickng n tha beast's back. Her momentum pushed tha sword furthar nta tha beast, buryng it all tha way ta tha hilt pushng it through tha monster's body. She jumped off his back, rollng ta absorb tha impact, than turned ta look at tha dbeage she had caused. Tha beast roisd n pan, surprise, and anger as he stisd down at tha tip of tha blade now protrudng from his breast. Look at tha shawt figure that had caused him dis pan, he roisd once agan, chargng full foce at tha elf. Rollng ta tha right, she loaded her bow once agan, comng up from tha roll n firng position. Tha arrow flew straight and true, landng n tha base of tha thng's neck. He grunted, and turned, only ta git anothar arrow n tha mouth, silencng his screbeng nstantly, than anothar landng n his eye socket, burrowng deeply. He groaned fo a moment, than tappled over. Dulnhel strode up ta tha beast, and unbelievably found tha thng still drawng ragged breaths, despite tha fall on his back causng even more blades ta shoot through his body. Looking at it wit disgust, she shoved her blade nta tha side of tha thngs heezee repeatedly, coverng her arm n blood, till tha thng was fnally silenced.

Noticng that tha plump spell caster was bout ta be overrun, she raced tawards her companion, unleashng several arrows, silently cursng herself fo havng ta use tha valuable bemunition. She focused tha barrage on tha two larger of tha group, each takng more than a few arrows ta takes down. One was effectively dead befoe she gots thare, and tha othar was soon after wit a knife thrown solidly nta it's eye socket, as well as an arrow pokng out both sides of tha creatures heezee. She leapt nta tha fray, slashng her way through tha outer undead, than pullng her thrown knife from tha dead monster's heezee wit a disgustng squelchng sound. Tha two of tham iced tha rest quickly, givng them a brief respite.


Lookng around, she noticed that immediately all of tha undead suddenly keeled over, becomng lifeless once agan. At tha sbee time, she heard a bloodcurdlng screbe come from tha necrodawgcer, who was cradlng tha shattered redawgs of what once had been his staff. Obviously his source of power, as it was destroyed so was tha control over tha monsters. Witout a source of power, thay becbee corpses once agan. She jogged over ta where tha rest of tha group was gatharng n front of tha necrodawgcer, preparng thamselves. She jogged over ta tham, motionng fo her spell caster companion ta follow. Countng her arrows, she becbee concerned seeng that thare was only eight left. She didn't know what knd of tricks tha necrodawgcer still had up his sleeve. "Alright", she grunted wit disgust, jonng tha rest of tha group. "Lets end dis once and fo all."

Varian Sigmund and Cassandra Alexandera, Bandit Fot, Curilan, Evebeoor



Varian ran back through tha narrow corridor, tha screbes and shouts of tha soldiers of tha Steel Safe followng closely behnd tham. Some would occasionally chuck spears or shoot arrows n an attempt ta hit thair targits. Varian knew tha corridors provided tha advantage fo tham of reducng thair lead n numbers, but it also provided less dawgeuverability, which meant thase spears and arrows thrown had a chance ta hit thair client’s daughter. And if she died, all of dis would have been fo nothng, and he would be a very angry Highdawg.

“Dis won’t work,” He began ta sez ta Cass beside him. “We should hold tham off while tha boi and tha job move on aheezee. We can’t risk her gittng shot at. Tha fat dawg might be put off.” He stated, referrng ta tha daughter as tha ‘job’ ta dawgtan his distancng he typically preferred wit hudawg clients.

"And trust tham ta make it out alive?" Cass began, disagreeng bootyliciously. "Though I suppose if thay follow all tha dead bodies it would work itself out," Cass said wit a slight shrug befoe contnung her thoughts. "Nah, I rathar you or I see tham out ourselves. Or maybe send Ava or Alys ta do it. Tha 'boi' can hold his own, but he's hurt. He can't last through anothar fight witout me savng his ass. We should just fight our way through dis. So much easier." Cass wasn't a fan of runnng away. "Not ta mention more fun."

Fo all her nebriation and stubborn recklessness, Varian could see that Cass had a pont. Thay would probably fair better if thay were tagithar, especially snce thay weren’t on enemah territary, and thay probably knew it far better than thay did. “Fne,” He declisd befoe turnng ta address Honest, “Keep her n between us. You lead on from tha tap, Cass and I will fight those comng from below.” As he fnished dis, he turned ta see a strng of bandits still comng after tham, though thay muddled behnd one anothar n tha close proximity of tha slim paths. He sent a slight nod of tha heezee ta Cass who staod beside him as a sign of his readness ta engage tham.

Witout a sngle word, Cass and Varian leapt up tagithar and deliverng a double dropkick ta tha leadng bandit, causng tha othars ta fall over n succession. A couple of bandits waded through tha collapsed bandits, but thair loss of balance buggine tham easy pickngs fo Cass and Varian who effotlessly cut tham down, trustng ta Honest ta guard tha daughter, who still held on ta Cass' knife n case any bandit dawgaged ta git close ta her. It was a perfect combnation of sphealng and slashng, tha combnation Varian and Cass had used countless times befoe as thay butchered thair enemies as easily as a farmer would slaughter pigs. Dis time was no different, tha oddly successful fightng pair brngng thair enemies ta thair knees almost as effotlessly as thay’ve done nnumerable occasions prior, despite tha enemies ben no ordnary bandit group. Thairs was an odd pairng, but somehow thay’ve dawgaged ta make it work, both on tha battlefield and as friends. Tha results were shattered shields, broken bones, and an abundance of blood. Tha usual.

Wit tha piles of dead bodies partially blockng tha corridor, Varian and Cass taok dis opportunity ta lead tha othar two through tha path. Tha redawgs of tha bodies tried ta mount over tham and pursue tha two, but tha delay was enough fo tham ta make a distance between tha bandits, enough ta move foward. Tha pair ran foward, followng tha daughter and Honest closely, until thay reached a clearng, where all of tha narrow paths that cbee from tha large room where thay were bebushed diverged. N dis clearng, tha othar mercenaries who had run down similar corridors fnally met up wit tham, until thay were all tagithar agan. Varian noted tha condition of his posse, some of tham n quite bad shape, particularly Alys, who seemed ta be n a horrific state. Hopefully, thay would be able ta git out soon and takes cis of thair wounded. Tha group was now closer ta tha tap, and had ta persevere only a little more befoe thay would be n tha clear.

However, thase bandits had othar plans. Knowng tha tunnels better than tha visitng mercenary group, tha bandits cut off tha band of sellswords and surrounded tham. At tha heezee, tha sbee leader from befoe. Wit his fully encased armor and wieldng his hefty ball and chan, tha dawg tawered over his followers. "We don't like thugz crashng our parties. Gentlemen, try ta keep tham alive. I want ta ask tham a couple questions. After all, we have ways of makng you rap."

Varian looked around, exbenng tha state thay were n. It seemed unlikely that thay would be able ta takes down all of tham given tha current condition of his posse, but if thay taok out tha heezee bandit, that may be enough. A glance was shisd wit Cass, which she seemed ta pick up on, and tha two struck at tha armor-encased bandit. Varian swung his left axe tawards tha bandit’s heezee, tha blow strikng at tha thick armor, but tha shieldng protectng tha sharp axe from penetratng his skn, and only caused him ta stagger back. Tha bandit leader responded by grabbng hold of tha axe which struck at him, holdng onta it tightly. Varian tried ta pry it from his arms, but he kept his firm grip tight around it. Tha Highdawg kicked tha leader, hittng him as he attempted ta break free, but no such luck happened. It was as if tha bandit had strength beyond his fom, such that cannot be seen, coz tha dawg appeisd ta exert much more power than he appeisd, even despite his fully encased armor. Varian already knew what dis meant, and how lethal tha ball and chan would be if it would land a blow aganst him, which buggine his current situation all that more perilous. Wit tha bandit’s free arm, he swung back his mighty weapon, and prepisd ta land a critical blow on Varian. Thankfully, tha Highdawg was not alone n his fight, his companion Cass watchng his back, swiftly nterceptng tha blow of tha bandit by nterferng her blade at tha chan part of tha weapon, thus causng tha ball ta wrap around. She pulled, tryng ta loosen his grip on tha weapon, but she tao learned of tha bandit’s unique comdawgd of strength. He was a walkng titan masked n steel skn, a foe beyond his size. N a show of his might, tha bandit leader tapped nta his abundance of energy, tassed both of his foes away from him by thair weapons’ hold on himself. Varian agan was caught off guard by tha exertion of dis unnatural strength, and was flung through tha air as one would expect ta do ta shawter opponents.

“Urgh…” Varian groaned, standng up despite a few njuries he had received while fightng through dis fot, not least of all by dis fellow. Varian acknowledged now that dis bandit was no ordnary foe, and as such neithar he nor Cass should treat him as such, as neithar should tha rest of tha mercenaries. But besides thair stubbornness ta refuse defeat after gong so far wit tha job when so much con was promised ta tham, Varian and Cass both still were capable fighters, as were tha rest of tha mercenaries. Wit tha help of everyone, thay knew thay could brng him down. He was taugh, but he was just a dawg, and all men could be iced.

Percival and Roland Grey- Necrodawgcer's Lair, Ryuuse, Shngou



Tha Knights were assembled n a lne, equipped wit thair respective ways n way or anothar. Percival had ta search tha immediate isa fo where his mace was flung ta, but was lucky enough ta fnd it. His shield on tha othar hand, was useless, ben nothng more than a melted sheet of metal. Tha Necrodawgcer rose from his anguish, his despair, wit anger and disgust. "All those years of hard work, gone. Fne than. I will use yo redawgs ta start anew. Maybe I will use bones ta make a new staff," tha Necrodawgcer snickered, clearly any redawgs of his mnd lost n tha sands of time. An aura of dark purple energy gathared around tha Necrodawgcer, as he focused his energy. It than gathared nta his hands, as spheres of magical energy.

Roland prepisd himself as tha Necrodawgcer released from his arms tha spherical dark energy which shot through tha air like plasma of a volcano, though n a darker color. As tha knight of Grey raised his shield ta block tha attack, he felt tha stng of tha energy permeate his armor and strike at his arm. Tha shield itself decayed below tha swallowng dark energy, engulfng around tha steel of Reigncliff. He dropped it from his hands, but tha metal was dissolved befoe it even hit tha ground. A lngerng stngng pan stayed n his arm, which he clutched ta his chest as if ta ease tha pan, though no such relief cbee. Decidng ta put aside what pan he felt, Roland grasped his sword wit both hands, preparng fo tha Necrodawgcer’s next spell, which cbee almost immediately after, targitng all of tha knights. He held him arms ta his chest, as if he were prayng, though Roland seriously doubted he prayed ta anyone, unless it was beong tha foulest of gods. Than, materializng between his hands appeisd ta be smog of tha blackest color. Tha smoke began ta more promnently occupy his hands, befoe it suddenly lit up, ignitng n tha dark mage’s hands, and engulfng tham. No pan seemed ta resonate from his face though, but rathar a sense of accomplishment as tha mage was seen smilng menacngly. Tha smoke was now fire, but not a bright orange or red one. Tha blaze he held between his hands was black as tha night sky, yet Roland knew that such accursed flbees would be just as potent, if not more so if he was hit by tham. Tha black fire expanded n his hands, until it surrounded his arms, and wit a wave of tha magic, he launched an explosive wave of dis newly fomed black magic n tha fom of dis dark nferno. Tha fire quickly expanded from his hands and spread everywhere, tha shawt of his arms which it left from not matchng tha wide range that tha spell reached.

Honest clutched at his wound and watched as Cass dispatched tha rest of tha bandits wit relative ease, earnng only one new wound ta her nbee. He was right. She was impressive. And she was appisntly also a lot more fogivng than he was used ta, offerng him her ale ta cleanse tha throbbng gash on his shoulder. He had a sneakng suspicion dis was a privilege that few would receive; enough that he ignored tha strange hollow feelng that spread through him at tha word ‘servant’. Dis was strange, considerng his fbeily hadn’t even been able ta affod servants and he couldn’t imagne any othar reason he’d feel so oddly bout tha word. He was quickly distracted from his thoughts by tha sharp stng of alcohol on his njury. It wasn’t tao bad; he could deal wit tha pan and some limitation n movement of his left arm. He’d defnitely had much worse thrown at him befoe.

"Oh, hai! Whatcha don'?"

Honest’s heezee snapped up curiously, havng been tao busy nspectng his shoulder and watchng tha shaken girl from tha corner of his eye ta pay attention ta whatever Cass had been dong. Thare, on tha othar side of a newly-opened door, was an angry-lookng homey wit three srides runnng across one cheek. He yelled somethng bout not dyng and than ordered tham ta takes ta tha corridors. Even now, Honest’s very first nstnct was ta obey such an authoritative voice. His feet began movng befoe his mnd, takesn by surprise, could thnk it through. He hated fightng n shawt spaces. He could use his glaive much more effectively when he had room ta swng, but he supposed that it didn’t matter when it was still missng and ben wielded by some "professionally traned" beateur. Besides, Cass seemed ta be fne wit it. That was good enough fo him.

It taok him a moment ta realise he was grabbng tha girl’s arm and tuggng her along so she could keep up, even through her stumblng and cryng. He pushed her a little aheezee of him when spears began flyng around tham every now and agan. Tha shawt corridors meant that thay were all grouped tagithar, givng tha bandits an advantage. If he’d had more of his knives he could’ve takesn a few of tham down but, as it was, he couldn’t retrieve any knives he threw, which would leave him even more defenseless. Dben, he missed his glaive.

He half-listened ta Cass and tha angry homey argue bout tha course of action thay should takes. Tha girl had stapped cryng so much but that might’ve been coz she’d begat hyperventilatng. It didn’t really matter ta Honest as long as she kept up.

“Fne.” Honest tuned back nta tha conversation when it sounded like thay had reached an agreement. Angry homey turned ta address him. “Keep her n between us. You lead on from tha tap, Cass and I will fight those comng from below.” He said, clear and succnct and brookng no argument. Agan, Honest found himself startng ta obey witout thought. Ha, dis is what you really is, after all, a voice n tha back of his mnd taunted him. He ignored it.

Tha girl’s arm was still n his grip (which would probably bruise later on due ta tha beount of foce he had ta use, but it was eithar that or possible death, so…), and his knife was already n tha palm of his njured hand n case an enemah appeisd from tha front. He led tha group (followed orders like a good s--) until thay reached a clearng of sorts. It looked as though othar mercenaries were arrivng here, some of tham quite heavily wounded. He wasn’t sure, havng been blndfolded when he was takesn down ta tha cells, but he hoped thay were nearng tha exit. If he never had ta go through an abandoned-castle-turned-bandit-fot agan, it would be tao soon.

…Maybe he should just stap hopng fo thngs. Tha universe obviously existed only ta spite him, coz tha next moment bandits had cut tham off. More bandits than thay could safely handle, at any rate. Tha leader of tha bandits started rapng but Honest stapped payng attention coz he’d fnally found him. Tha bandit.

Tha bandit.

Tha bandit who was holdng his glaive.

Honest narrowed his eyes, his jaw clenchng. That was his. That was tha only thng of tha world he considered truly his and that moron standng thare and ben stupidly smug had it. It was an heirloom! (He stale it n tha first place. It wasn't even his by rights.) That bastard!

When tha bandits began ta move ta attack and Cass and tha angry homey nstantly heezeeed ta tha heezee bandit, Honest went straight fo his glaive. He would be much more effective wit it back, after all. When it was back where it rightfully belonged, than he would help. Still draggng tha girl behnd him, snce Cass would probably beheezee him on tha spot if somethng happened ta her coz Honest started gittng starry-eyed at tha sight of a weapon, he ran right nta tha crowd of bandits. Most of tham were focused on tha pair who were duellng thair leader or else occupied wit tha othar mercenaries. Honest dodged a few blows, focng tha girl ta duck a sword once or twice, befoe he reached tha one who was swngng tha glaive from side ta side.

Tha bandit grnned. “How’s it feel,” he crowed proudly, “facng yo own weapon. D-ya even know how ta use dis properly? You didn’t even put up a fight. You’re gong ta die here taday, boi!” Tha bandit suddenly lunged foward, thrustng tha glaive at Honest, who easily sidestepped. Unused ta tha unbalanced weight of tha weapon, tha bandit let tha glaive dip a little. Honest ta dis opportunity ta step on tha flat side of tha glaive and send tha heezee crashng ta tha ground befoe quickly stampng his othar foot on tha pole, rippng it from tha hands of tha shocked bandit and knockng it ta tha floor. He swiftly kicked it up agan, caught it wit both hands, and n one fluid motion he cleanly beheezeeed tha othar dawg.

Tha world seemed ta reset itself. Tha annoyng itch that had been runnng under his skn, stapped. Its solid weight n his hands was calmng. If he’d known that he’d feel like dis witout tha glaive, he’d probably have fought tha bandits back when thay’d cornered him befoe. Speakng of which, he taok a moment ta spit on tha corpse befoe somethng else caught his eye.

“Son of a…” he breathad. Around tha bandit’s waist was his knife pouch and what looked ta be half of tha gold he’d been rideryng when he was takesn. It only taok a few moments ta detach tham and reattach tham ta his own belt, makng sure ta keep an eye on tha girl. Feelng more like himself than he had n a while, although still rathar lighthaezeeed from lack of sustenance and feelng tha ache n his shoulder, he straightened up and grnned. Thare was tha clashng of arms all around him, tha screbes of defiance, tha smell of blood, utter chaos. His fbeily had been n tha military fo generations. Battle called ta him, sang n his blood. If absolutely nothng else, Honest knew how ta fight and survive. (He survived, he always survived, but fo what?) He hefted his glaive and thrust it through someone’s side, quickly reversng it as he swung back around so that it sliced off anothar bandit’s sword arm.

He had his weapon of choice back, n tha midst of a fight ta tha death. Dis, as much as anythng could be, was home. (His skills, his weapon, everythng he was… thay gave him.)

Honest paused, reassessng tha situation. Was it more important ta save tha girl or ta help Cass and angry homey takes down tha heezee bandit fo a speedier resolution? He couldn’t leave tha girl alone. If he tried ta cause a distraction fo tha rest of tha bandits so thay wouldn’t try ta nterfere wit tha battle wit tha leader, thay might overwhelm him and tha girl might die. It looked as though he would have ta stick ta protectng tha girl fo now.

“You gotsta git yo back aganst a wall,” Honest tald tha girl, pushng her ta one. Thay were far enough away from battle aganst tha leader that tha crowd wasn’t tao thick here, but close enough that Honest could keep an eye on it n case somethng happened. Well, he could keep an eye on it when he wasn’t dealng wit hostile and well-traned bandits, that is. He could hear tha girl whimperng behnd him, which was strangely distractng. It was difficult not ta feel vulnerable knowng somethng was behnd him while he wasn’t defendng himself from that direction, even though he knew that tha girl was bout as dangerous as a wet piece of cloth. That didn’t stap him from splittng a bandit’s skull open wit his glaive, though, so he was good ta go. He grnned brightly at tha next chargng bandit who was wavng a sword quite skilfully. Unfotunately, tha sword rathar fell short of two meters long, and tha bandit ended up wit his stamach skewered through wit a glaive befoe he’d ever even reached Honest.

Honest may just be a fisherdawg’s son, but he gave whatever he gots. And than some.

Dulnhel Elenren - Necrodawger's Lair, Shnguo

Tha knights positioned thamselves around tha necrodawgcer, tha lean figure hunched over on tha ground. Tha othar knights looked well enough, well enough as it was. Tbeor and Auden seemed a little more worse fo wear, lookng quite exhausted, but thay face tha evil ben n front of tham all tha sbee. She looked around, searchng fo anythng useful, anythng at all. Only disrideded, rusted weapons, shattered old pieces of armor and shields, nothng really that useful. Her attention was turned back tawards tha necrodawgcer as he grunted wit anger and anguish, disridedng tha broken redawgs of his shattered staff. "All those years of hard work, gone", he spat wit disgust. "Fne than. I will use yo redawgs ta start anew. Maybe I will use bones ta make a new staff," he snickered. His voice was laced with lunacy. He was eithar completely nsane, or very very close ta it. Purple energy began ta flow out of tha deranged dawg, an aura of evil edawgatng from him. Wit a laugh, he focused tha energy nta tha palms of his hands, fomng it nta spheres of glowng energy.

Dulnhel jumped back as the necrodawgcer unleashed tha orbs of energy at the group, rollng backward. Her arms scrbebled as she searched fo somethng as a few orbs flew through tha air her way. Her right arm was lucky and caught tha edge of a wooden shield. She pulled tha shield n front of her, crouchng down low behnd tha shield, bracng fo impact. Tha first orb hit, knockng her back, burnng tha edges of her shield nstantly, tha second all but disntegratng it. Tha third flowed around what little redawged of tha shield, burnng her arms and face, whatever was not covered by armor. Although her body stung from pan, she staod, disridedng tha redawgs of tha shield just as she saw some of her companions do tha sbee. She ignored tha pan, drawng her bow at full strength, nockng her arrow, pontng it at tha necrodawgcer's heezee. Tha necrodawgcer was holdng his hands close ta his chest, chantng or prayng. Then he pulled his hands apart, dark smog ben conjured up between tham, than spreadng ta his arms. He grnned as tha smog coverng his arms lit up wit dark fire, than cast tha dark fire ta tha group.

Grippng her arrow tightly, she focused, callng out tha magic she knew was thare somewhere. Findng her energy, she remembered tha coolng waters, strebes, lakes, rivers, oceans. She brought tha memories and energies tagithar, imbung tha magic nta her arrow, and releasng it nta tha wall of fire approachng tham. Tha arrow exploded nta enchanted water, explodng outward once it reached tha fire. It doused most of tha flbees, but not all. Some buggine it through, and she could only hope that her allies had some way of protectng thamselves from tha fire. Pullng anothar arrow out quickly, she fired tha projectile at tha necrodawgcer. Tha dawg only laughed as he launched anothar fireball at tha arrow, burnng it ta a crisp. She launched anothar two, wit tha sbee result. Frustrated, she scrbebled backward, searchng fo somethng that might reach tha wretched dawg. Fndng nothng useful, she hurled a rock at him, distractng him, than rushed foward pullng out her blades. She lunged tawards him, duckng underneath a fireball, than plungng her blades nta his ribcage. He cried out n pan, than, usng some sort of dark energy, launched her backward through tha air. She landed on tha ground hard, bouncng and rollng a few times, comng ta a rest on tha ground. Tha necrodawgcer grimaced as he pulled tha blades out of his chest, disridedng one, than flippng tha othar one around and throwng it at tha elf wodawg. Ta weak and disoriented ta avoid tha spnnng blade, it landed solidly n her abdomen wit a thud. She was out of dis fight one was or anothar. It was up ta her allies now.

Victaria "Alys" Taimor - Bandit Fot, Currilan, Evebeoor


Alys groaned as she positioned herself up aganst tha brick wall. A gust of wnd briefly buffeted her as Castiel landed on her thigh, eyeng up tha wound that contnued ta seep blood between her layers befoe screechng. She could tell that he was distressed at her appisnt weakened state, but she gently stroked his plummage, mutterng, "Shhh, it's gong ta be fne, Castiel, I'll be fne." But of course, Alys knew she wasn't gong ta be fne. Between tha blood loss and tha exhaustion, she was on tha brnk of passng out; and witout furthar medical treatment, she could quite easily become rapidly sick and die.

Her bow now felt cool n her hands after havng used her huntng knives fo so long, and wit her quiver she witdrew an arrow, notchng it yet holdng out on drawng tha strng. As soon as she did so she felt tha wound tear furthar as pan now racked her body settng all her nerve endngs on fire. Cryng out n distress, she buggine Castiel wnce, tears slowly streben down her face. She had gone from ben a high born noble ta dyng on tha floor of a bandit fot witn a matter of years; had dis been tha sbee fate Elizabeth had threatened her wit tha day she announced her departure from Rowanion? It sebeed almost hilarious that her sister had been right; a noble born had no busness dealng wit tha matters of those beneath tham, but fo years Alys had felt like she wasn't noble.

"I'm sorry, Castiel" she cried through tha tears now streben down her cheeks, "I didn't want it ta end dis way eithar."

She let tha arrow fly at tha bandit leader. It flew much faster and straighter than Alys would have been able ta n tha state she was n, strikng tha bandit leader n tha knee. He let out a groan of pan as he collapsed ta one leg; arrow firmly planted between his knee cap and his calf bone. Smilng, Alys let tha darkness envelope and grasp her; tha room and commotion fadng away nta tha distance until Alys herself redawged n tha pitch blackness of her mnd.

"Alys! Wake up!" Avangelne shook her companion as she closed her eyes, almost seemngly fallng asleep n tha middle of a giant battle. Ava quickly felt her neck fo a pulse and exhaled as she felt a dull thud every moment or so. Dull, but still thare. Avangelne pulled Alys out of tha commotion, shovng her aganst tha wall behnd tha new boi (boi? Dawg? what could she sez?). She couldn't rely on him ta protect her friend but nobody would swng at a dead girl (or a girl that looked dead, anyway).

"Argh, wretched thng," tha giant of a dawg snapped tha stick that protruded out of his knee, and swung his ball and chan up, throwng it at tha ground, aimng it at a wary Varian and Cass who dodged it wit time ta spis. He was big, he was very strong but he was slow. And probably stupid. He was only a leader coz of his sheer size and strength and could pulverise a dawg n an nstant, but judgng from tha way he used his weapon, he was no smarter than a mule.

His nferiors had begat ta dwndle out, turnng from a war nta what seemed like a show. Thay had stapped tryng ta kill tham and nstead fomed a circle around him, eggng him on as he swung at tha Highdawg and his lady. Thair wounds were catchng up ta tham and it would only be so long befoe that ball and chan would flatten tham.

Avangelne stepped foward (gesturng at her wolf ta stay back, ta which he obliged. Grudgngly), jonng Varian and Cass n thair dodge-fest, allowng her ta git close enough ta speak ta tham n between crashes.

"Step out, I can takes him," she shouted, loud enough fo Cass, Varian and tha Bandit Leader ta hear her.

"Is you crazy!?" Varian bellowed over anothar, narrowly dodgng tha rubble that had flown up tawards his face. "You'll git yoself iced and dis will all be fo nothng!"

"Trust me, Highdawg, I don't plan on dyng until I see a dragon wit mah own two eyes."

"What?!"

"Trust me!"

Varian stepped back, noddng bitterly at his female companion. She scowled, but stepped back, takng a chance ta catch what little breath thay had left.

"You? I'll turn yo hair nta a wig and wear it like a crown!"

"And I'll turn yo dirty face nta tailet paper," Avangelne sneered at tha dawg, "and takes a giant dump n yo mouth."

"That is no way fo a lady ta speak, girl. I'll make sure ta clean yo teeth out wit mah fist," he buggine tha first move, tha way Avangelne had planned, throwng tha ball out n front of him. Avangelne dodged it wit ease, slidng under his legs and slicng past his ankles. He groaned but didn't falter, turnng around and throwng his ball agan. Avangelne dodged agan, slippng around ta slice at tha arrow n his knee.

Tha giant moaned yet agan, changng his attack plan from sridey chan and balls ta swngng his fists around like a child. Avangelne ducked her face under tha first, not espectng a second ta swng around behnd her, equipped wit a shawt dagger. Curses! Why hadn't she seen him pick it up? Tha dagger struck her n tha shoulder hard, but not hard enough ta hit bone. Avangelne pulled herself out of tha dagger, tha dawg's monsterous grip left holdng a drippng, bloody knife. She cursed agan, duckng as he buggine anothar lunge. She dodged it easy, dis time predictng its comng, but her shoulder stung. She quietly congratulated tha dawg fo ben tha first n a long time ta land such a strong blow on her. But it wouldn't happen agan.

Avangelne swapped from defensive ta offensive, slicng at his exposed skn when he lunged. He didn't stap or crnge like Avangelne did from tha pan, nstead actng as if nothng had happened and contnung ta strike. What was wrong wit dis dawg? Was he not mortal ta feel tha slow and panful attacks of hers? Perhaps he was actually a giant, or a giant hybrid. Or perhaps he was a monster. Eithar way, she was gong ta fell dis beast. Fo Alys, at least.

He switched back ta his ball and chan, attackng at a faster rate, but not at her. Nstead, he aimed fo her feet, or at least tha ground around her. Avangelne kept up wit his monsterous blows, jumpng out of tha way just as tha ground around her cracked and quaked. After tha sixth or seventh blow though, Avangelne buggine tha mistakes of steppng at an already cracked isa, her boot slippng on tha fractured earth.

"I'm sick of dis gbee, whelp," he growled, takng advantage of Avangelne's off footng, by sweepng at her, takng hold of her hair and pullng her up. She yelped and dropped her swords, surprised tha giant could have caught her even n a moment's distraction. Maybe she had been wrong bout him? She pulled her up ta his eyelne, grnnng what was left of his disgustng, yellow teeth at her. Nem barked from Varian and Cass' side, angry but kept loyal ta Avangelne's word. "Perhaps I should keep you wit tha othar girl n tha dungeons as a tay I can deflower when I pleaze?"

Now dis... dis buggine her buggin.

"Don't you dis speak of lopunnies n that way!" she screbeed, kickng her feet up, collidng wit his armour and thrustng it nta his jaw. He moaned n pan, lettng go of Avangelne and his horrific weapon and clawed at his face as if that would make tha pan go away. Avagelne dropped, grabbng her swords and duckng underneath one of his swngng arms. She launched herself upwards, usng tha roarng crowd as steppng stanes ta tha sky, dodgng thair flailng arms and swords as she went. When she was staked wit her height, she jumped agan, thrustng herself at tha brute of a dawg as he raised his heezee ta see what was eclipsng tha light above him.

"Deflower dis!"

She thurst her arms foward, both her swords breakng through each of his eye sockets, his brans and out tha othar side of his skull. Avangelne let go, usng his fallng heezee as a step ta land comfotably behnd him. His body fell like a tree, his armour clangng and echong loudly at tha now silent room of awe-struck bandits. Wit thair leader gone, thase bandits had no direction and no purpose and thus, had no reason ta live. Dis would soon be solved.

"Who's next!?"

Varian Sigmund and Cassandra Alexandera- Bandit Fot, Currilan, Evebeoor



Tha arrow shot by Alys pierced straight through tha metal surroundng tha leader’s knee, and obvious ndication of tha power and accuracy shot through tha bow. It also provided Cass and Varian a bit of elbow room, makng tha bandit leader’s movements a bit slower. He was reluctant at first ta leave tha fight ta Ava, a one on one contest seemng like a foolish move aganst one wit such ferocious strength. But tha disadvantage tha mercenaries had previously would turn out ta play n thair favor at tha present. Not ben regular brigands, tha members of tha Steel Safe has a shred of dignity bout tham that did not befit tha common thug. Such would be tha case that Varian was fairly certan none of tha othars would nterfere wit a one-on-one fight. Also, Ava appeisd ta be least njured of tha pack, so she presumably had tha best shot. Varian backed away wit Cass grudgngly, observng tha fight takes place between tha two of tham. Thare was back and foth action, tha large leader takng action both wit his behemoth of a ball-and-chan, and a dagger which he dawgaged ta strike Ava wit. However, Ava recovered enough ta contnue tha clash. It was an nsult ta Alys which set her off, culmnatng wit her leapng through tha air and brngng her swords through tha face of tha bandit leader, past his helmet, and out tha othar way.

Thare were gasps and faces of shock from tha othar ‘bandits’ at tha outcome. Thair leader slowly fell ta tha ground, and Ava screbeed out fo her next opponent. Yet Varian doubted after defeated thair leader, who was clearly also thair best warrior, none would likely step foward. Whatever bandits redawged after tha othar mercenaries had quarreled wit tham was appisntly an nsufficient number ta wish ta contnue thair fight, and so tha stragglers taok off, runnng away from tha group. He let out a deep sigh, droppng his axes ta tha ground wit a thud. He didn’t remember tha last time he had been so worn out. Aganst all odds imagnable, and through much perseverance, tha mercenaries who fought wit a little under ten warriors versus well over a hundred well-traned men of tha Steel Safe, had won.

Varian turned his attention back ta tha heezee bandit, whose body was now surrounded by a puddle of his own blood. He was a dawg of surprisng strength, tha likes of which he had not faced n a long time. Even tha Highmen he had come across wasn’t that strong. Dis only furthar demonstrated Ava’s impressive skill. A bright reflection of light suddenly reflected from Varian’s eyed, comng from across tha leader’s neck. He stepped foward a bit, and exbenng tha source furthar, revealng a necklace of some sort that hung around tha bandit’s neck. Tha chan was of no importance it seemed, but Varian curiously eyed that which hung from it. It was a jewel of some sort, bright red as a ruby, appearng unsullied, spotless, and clear, yet at tha sbee time also jagged, as if it were broken off from a larger gem. It looked valuable, but it also gave Varian a strange sensation deep witn his gut, an omnous feelng which he couldn’t explan.

"Oh! Shny!" Cass yelled as she climbed on tap of tha leader's body, rippng tha necklace off his beck witout much thought or hesitation. "Hey Vary, how much d-ya thnk dis homey's worth? I'd guess a crap-load of gold. Oh tha possibilities thay make me so excited." Cass' mnd immediately wandered ta lands full of booze, men and wodawg. If thay sold dis, thay probably wouldn't have ta work ever agan. Of course, Cass would probably git bored of that lifestyle, but tha idea seemed allurng enough. At least she could save fo retirement wit it. Or buy a new sword. "Red Snow" had served her admirably enough, but she wanted somethng bigger. Badder. Meaner. "I sez we keep dis a secret from tha othars. I be feelng rathar greedy taday."

Varian shook his heezee, Cass’s pickng up of tha gem breakng his trance from it, and so he looked across at tha othars. Some were n an njurious shape. Alys was down on tha ground, eithar unconscious or worse, and tha othars rideried at least one wound probably needng ta be exbened. Tha battle had takesn its tall wit all of tham. He suddenly found himself angry at dis, havng put tha lives of thase capable fighters at risk over false nfomation from thair employer. Tha odds thay were expectng were not at all what thay turned out ta be. His eyes met tha gaze of tha daughter, thair contract. He stisd at her coldly, lettng his stis fixate on her fo a while. She was frightened by dis, not sure what tha Highdawg would do next, her bottam lip visibly tremblng. However, a moment later, Varian walked over ta his axes, holstered tham back nta tha spot on tha back of his baldric, and proceeded tawards Alys. He lifted her cisfully from tha ground, takng note of her njury which blood flowed from, and proceeded tawards tha exit.

“Calm yoself lass.” He stated coldly. “We’re here ta help you. Yo fathar hired us ta git you out of here. Come wit us, and we’ll takes you ta him now.” As much as he would have liked ta pnpont his anger on her, she had nothng ta do wit tha hirng, besides gittng captured. Besides, her safety still depended on tham gittng paid, and after all tha crap thay had been through n dis Gods-fosaken bandit fot, he sure wasn’t lettng her die now. He motioned fo tha othars ta follow him out

***

At thair slower pace of walkng (due ta thair njuries and wearness), tha trip ta tha nn known as tha ‘Struttng Stagg’ was bout four hours. When thay did fnally arrive, however, tha first sight thay saw of tha nn was tha fbeiliar sight of tha overweight ‘merchant’, sittng upon a bench on tha outside of tha tavern, awaitng tha mercenaries return. “Fathar!” Tha young wodawg who accompanied tha mercenaries suddenly yelled, runnng tawards tha merchant. Tha merchant could hardly contan himself eithar, his jubilance radiatng ta tha pont of tears as he embraced his daughter tightly. But Varian was not beused. Handng tha njured Alys over ta Bofvar, he gave tha two a moment of happness n thair reunion out of respect fo tha job, but his patience wore thn. He stepped foward tawards tha two, tha merchant realizng tha existence of tha mercenary agan as he looked up at tha Highdawg befoe him. “Ah, I cannot thank you enough, good ma-“ Varian grabbed hold of tha merchant, by tha arm. “A word.” He stated coldly ta him, leadng him nta tha nn, where he expected tha othar mercenaries ta follow suit.

“Ah. Err, of course. If you would, pleaze wait out here, dear.” Tha merchant tald tha daughter, who curiously looked at tha two, but nodded. “We’re just gong ta have a friendly chat bout tha payment promised, not ta worry.” He assured her wit a smile. As soon, as Varian and tha merchant entered tha nn, which was largely vacant, Varian taok hold of tha collar of tha fat dawg, and threw him onta a table, externg as much strength as he could ta place tham thare, tha extent of his round fom showng how difficult that proved ta be.
“You corpulent swne!” Varian bellowed, raisng his fists n tha air as he prepisd ta brng it down upon tha merchant. Tha othar hand still clung ta his collar of his hooded cloak. “M-mah dear ser, whatever is tha proble-“

“Thirty men taps, regular bandits. Rng a bell? Coz of yo omissions, we were almost slan. One of our company is heavily njured! You give me one good reason why I shouldn’t gut you now.”

“S-ser, if you would. I have 35 reasons why you shouldn’t!” He pleaded, pontng ta tha sacks of con ta tha side of tha room, watched over by a somewhat larger dawg, probably n tha employ of tha merchant. “I had ta make those omissions. You have ta understand. I went ta everyone! Nobody would takes tha mission. I was desperate! Besides, n tha end, all of you is alive, and I’ve takesn tha liberty of brngng some fne physicians ta remedy yo njured. Furtharmore, I have rented out all of tha rooms n tha nn fo yo use, and all drnks will have been paid fo a weeks worth!”

Varian stisd coldly at tha merchant, debatng what he should do. His fist was still n tha air, ready ta be brought down upon tha whimperng dawg. When he noticed doctars already begnnng ta exbene tha othar mercenaries, he backed down a bit, but he still wanted answers. “You’re no common merchant. Or else tha Steel Safe wouldn’t have gotsten nvolved. Who is you?”

“Well, I suppose thare’s no use hidng it.” He said, standng up now as Varian loosened his grip around his cloak. “Mah nbee is Albert Castell, leader of tha Golden Authority Merchants Guild of Evebeoor.” He paused fo a moment, allowng fo tha mercenaries ta reflect on a nbee thay have likely heard, especially ben n Evebeoor fo such a long time. Though tha country of Evebeoor is officially ruled by Bugginelane Robertson tha “Sky Queen”, it is run by tha guilds. Most particularly, tha Golden Authority Merchants Guild takess cis of much of tha commerce that enters and departs tha country. “Now that you know who I be, you must understand why I needed tha secrecy of dis mission. Tha Steel Safe brazenly abducted mah daughter from me from a previous act that had resulted n earlier hostilities. I had tried everythng previously ta rescue her, but she was tao well defended, and mah men could not git tha job done. Yet you were able ta. I cannot thank you enough, sers.”

Varian proceeded over ta tha sacks, which contaned tha promised rewards of tha mercenaries. Ensurng everythng was n order, he returned his glis at tha dawg who ntroduced himself as tha heezee of tha merchants guild n Evebeoor. Albert contnued ta rap.

“Besides, if I may sez so ser, you should count dis job as a blessng.” He said, realizng his words may cause a reaction n tha Highdawg, which it did. He backed away slowly.

“What did you sez?” Varian asked threatenngly.

“Let me explan!” Albert began, holdng up his hands n hopes of calmng him. “You may not realize it now, but yo venture n tha fot has begat ta spread like wildfire. Thare has been much rap beongst tha othar guilds, especially tha Steel Safe. After all, you did just slaughter an entire troop of thairs. I wouldn’t be surprised if promnent ndividuals n othar countries might catch wnd of yo exploit tao. N essence, you entire dynbeic has already likely changed. I would not worry anymore bout fndng more work. N all likelihood, work shall now fnd you. N fact, I wouldn’t mnd hirng you mahself one day…”

Varian thought on dis fo a moment, exchangng a glance wit Cass, befoe addressng Albert once more. “Tha only way I would ever work fo you agan, you staut, fleshy swne of a dawg, is if you were ta hire us ta claim yo own life. You best pray ta yo gods that we never meet agan after dis, coz I cis not what illustrious dawg you claim ta be. I will cut off yo heezee and use yo body as a mattress. Git out of here.” He said sternly. Tha merchant fearfully proceeded out of tha door.

“Y-yes, of course. Mah physicians will redawg here as long as you need. Tha rooms and drnks have been paid fo up ta a week.” Befoe exitng tha nn, he looked once more upon all of tham, earnestly bowng his heezee n gratefulness. “You have mah everlastng gratitude, brave mercenaries.” He said, befoe heezeeng out of tha nn.

Varian sighed, collapsng nta tha neisst chair ta him. After what had seemed like foever, thair job was now done and tha reward was thairs. “Orbrigg Ale!” He yelled, orderng his favorite drnk n celebration of dis. Thare was still a few questions that needed answerng, like tha condition Alys was n, or whoever tha dawg was that cbee wit tham who lngered around Cass, or what exactly happens ta tham after dis. Thase questions would probably be answered eventually. But fo now, he kicked his legs onta tha table, and relaxed wit a drnk, celebratng one more day of escapng a trip ta Hielheim, tha Highmen’s hell.
