Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: a vision?


The horrifying scene of the deaths of his comrades - and Arien's own fate, one worse than death - faded, leaving the knight and his companions confused and fighting with a field of corn. How real it had seemed! He had been chosen by Heironeus, Winston had shown his wings (which were clearly no longer evident), the battle had been terrible...

At first, Arien believed that he had been in the throes of some sort of dream or vision of his own, but the bewildered looks on the party's faces - coupled with the damage done to the cornfield - proved that they had all shared the experience. The young man shook his head to clear the cobwebs and opened his hands in a gesture meant to indicate peaceful intentions to the poor farmer. "Good sir," Arien spoke, "allow me to offset the damages we have caused here." With that, the knight reached into his purse and withdrew a generous sum for the damaged crops.

As the party rode on, he wondered. What could it all mean? Was this some sort of foul charm, designed to sway the party from their course, to make them believe that their enemies could not be killed?

Firm resolve flooded the knight. No. I will not be swayed. Those monsters must be defeated. These people must be protected! I will not back down, not like those cowardly priests. Even if it costs my life...

Suddenly, Arien Aston Thedell the Third could hear his grandsir's irritated voice as the memory came flooding back.



"Sir Gunraud was a hero! He gave his life in a hopeless battle against Duke Ragnin's forces, and bought the king enough time to rally his men to defeat the villain!"

Arien the younger had been about to continue when he felt the old man's icy glare on him. He looked up, impassioned speech cut short.

"Don't be a fool, boy," Grandsir spat. "Gunraud was, and it didn't just cost him his life in some romantic notion. Innocent people were killed, women were raped, and the town was put to the torch because he was a fool. He had walls, and Ragnin had no siege tools. The king would have been there in days, but Gunraud thought himself divinely blessed, and many families paid for his pride and folly."

Arien gaped, open-mouthed, as his grandsir sullied the name of a local hero. "Shut your yap before you start catching flies in it, boy," the old man snapped. "Listen Arien," he continued, his tone softened ever so slighty, "a true knight may well be called to lay down his life if there is no other choice. Even so, don't mistake idiocy for bravery. Better to make your enemy die for his cause than for you to do the same."




The heir to House Thedell grew quiet. What day was it, indeed? How much had they imagined - the fight only, or the refugees, the scouting, and all of it?

Arien felt shame of his own hubris. Was he as deluded as Gunraud, to think that he was chosen by the gods, and so willingly walk into some terrible fate... all the while, expecting the gods to intervene? He felt shame burn his cheeks. Those priests of Herioneus had to be brave and of good character, at least by and large, else they would never have been in the priesthood. Yet the young noble had been more willing to believe in their cowardice, coupled with his own divine destiny, than to consider that there might be a reason they shied from conflict.

Did they know something that he did not? If these demons truly were impregnable, perhaps they knew this - or knew of the cause.

Shamefaced, Arien voiced his thoughts. "Perhaps, before we again engage these monsters, we shoud speak to these priests. If they know some vital secret as to what we can do to harm the demons, we would be fools to not learn it."

Heh, it's funny - I have always planned to live to 100, anyway. Never thought about the year to repent.

I probably need it.

It is, indeed, a vicious cycle. Games are slow, so we are slow, which makes the games slower...

Okay, Merideth, I hear you.

**makes mental note to have undead abominations find religion - preferably one that includes eating the living**

I will improve this aspect of the game.

Yay for billions!

I've noticed that what Admiral says is largely true. If I'm not active, the site's activity drops.

Which is curious to me... I'm personally involved in very few games and such.

I didn't mean slow, as in, the site is functioning poorly - I meant slow, as in, there are tumbleweeds blowing through here.

Topic: Some Secrets are Best Left Buried...
Subject: uninvited...


18th Olemra (Thirkday), 452 E.R. - evening
Fin and Feather tavern, Filwood, Ertain

Shianna, sick with worry over Meera, disregards any possible meaning of the banging, and rushes towards the door. Neri recognizes the potential danger and takes to her feet, prepared to stop the shy woodswoman from doing naything rash.

Before the cleric can reach the door, before Neri can intervene, the wood gives way with a groan, admitting three pale, mottled figures that groan as they move threateningly into the building!

In the light of the tavern, the living dead are much more unsettling to view. All wear tattered, rotted clothing, and their flesh hangs from the bone. One is missing most of its face, another has naught but bones for fingers. Their eyes - or empty sockets, as the case may be - certainly cannot possibly see, and yet, their gazes fix upon the living.

Tessa screams in abject terror as the undead abominations force their way into the previously cozy tavern.

Love the song, Merideth - I can some some Audails canon, here.

ROFL!

This whole situation worries me. If we are still faced with fighitng demons in open ground, I'm not sure of a better way to do it.
