Trillion

Trillion fell in with the others also curious but not overly concerned who kept the skeletons away form them. That the skeletons did was more important to her. Beside just then Selunine asked who it was so she would soon know anyway. She kept a sharp lookout around the group paying attention to the city that seemed to be totally destroyed as far as she could see anyway. What could have done that, the skeleton army? Only who lead them. There had to be a controlling intelligence. Unfortunately she knew so little about the local area, or any of this area, who were their enemies? So many question so few to ask them from.

Trillion had questions and after Selunine asked who was keeping the skeletons away and got her answer Trillion asked. "Did you see who destroyed the town other than the skeletons? Who are this land's enemies?"

Kandar

Kandar felt impelled to grab at the bow, like an external force was acting on him. So he reached out and tried pulling the longbow free. All of a sudden a rush of thoughts hit him, he hadn't really taken in what the girl said, the apostle wasn't what they were looking for the weapons 'ah' he thought to himself these must be equipped to someone who can harness their power this mastermind between these simple assasins must know how! So he will have 10 masterful weapons and a dragon!! He must hurry, He tuggged harder to free the beautiful bow.

Mora


Mora looked to the young elf who had flown in to join them. Greetings, I am Morasennarion, this is Ninian and Hector," she points to the young teen girl at her side and the the beefy young man with the hammer, "and this is someone we meet on the road." she points to the one who had been disguised as an old man. "I do not know his name."

A though suddenly hits Mora, "Hector, were the animals affected as well?"

Game Post... Sorry About the Massive Delay.

Badon
Morasennarion led the way towards her home, with Selunine, Trillion, Achilles, Hector and Ninian following behind her. With the rapid pace which they had been marching, the skeletons soon were left behind, and were lost from view.

"What power do you possess that repels these skeletons?" Selunine asked the four not knowing which of them would answer.
Ninian spoke in response to Selunine's question. "My lady... Selunine I believe it was? ... I wish I knew the answer to your question. I myself was afraid when we approached the city's borders, and though we saw people within, I was afraid to enter because of the walking dead. However, I was confident that with Mora's power we would be alright. There was no need to test that power though, as they never approached us."

A though suddenly hits Mora, "Hector, were the animals affected as well?"
"I don't really know Mora... haven't seen any out and about, but I haven't seen walking dead ones either, so I'd say they got killed, but not enchanted to walk again. I hadn't been out of the city though, so I don't know for certain how the world around us is affected. Scary sight though... all happened with some bright light. I was down in the cellar picking up another thing of ale since we had just run out. Came back up, and the walls were gone, bodies all over the place. And then, the rest is history."

The walk through the forest was strangely silent. There was no chirping of birds, and sounds of what was the city of Badon. The only sound that was slightly audible was the sound of the water lapping on the cliff face where the city had been built.

Mora, leading the way, soon found her way to her home. The house was still intact, and it seemed as though sound had returned. The birds could now be heard chirping, and there was the sound of footsteps every now and then of a creature walking just out of sight.

And old man and woman are sitting on the porch, speaking with each other. A small dog lays on the porch between them, lazing in the sun. They have not noticed the group yet, but Mora recognizes them as her parents and pet. At least they aren't dead. Or worse.


The Holy City of Alimar - Weapons Room
As Kandar grasps the bow, his vision begins to fade, and power rushes through him. Slowly his vision fades to black, and Kandar's mind stops working.

Seconds later though, Kandar wakes. Finding himself holding the bow in his hands, and ten arrows standing in front of him. But where was he? Looking around he noticed he was in a closed room, but there was grass growing like the outdoors. Trees were abundant, but not impossible to navigate. Further down, Kandar though he could see... a target? Two targets? Maybe more? He couldn't be sure.

"So you've come, Kandar Tailsad. It is good to see you. I knew that you would come. It is time, after all."

Whipping around, you can see a small elven woman wearing clothes of the plains, and with her hair in braids, with beads woven in to them. Her bronzed skin seems vibrant against her raven black hair. She also holds a bow in one hand. Along her arm though, you can see the head of a bird tattooed in. This must be the person from the painting behind the bow!

"My name is Mia. I go by 'The Eagle'. In times past, I used that bow to fight in the great war. And now, it moves to you. However, are you truly worthy? If you wish to prove your worth, I propose a game." Mia walks over to you. Her yellow eyes fix on you, and a smile forms on her face. She picks up five of the arrows before you. In her hand, they turn white, while the ones which she left turn black.

"Here's how this works. In the forest, there are five targets. We each have thirty seconds to go out and shoot at the targets. You can use my old bow, and I will use this one which I have just made. If you win, or tie me, you can keep the bow. If not, then I'll have to take it back. What do you say?"

MY NAME IS UNIMPORTANT.

"Aye' my name is Achilles. So uhhh, what's keeping these skeletons at bay?" (As they walk to the woman using his staff as a walking).

"I do have two horses i know must still be safe and in their position, they are stone. We ever head back to Badon I'll have to get them." "Off to your parents house then?"

Achilles decides he will remain silent most of the time. He will talk just he plans not to initiate conversation since it's not really necessary.

"O, Hector is your name? You should really watch where you send those thigh bones flying, one hit me right in the head."

Mora


Mora hurries forward her heart had been pounding all the way here for fear that the curse that had infected Bado had reached her home. Catching sight of her parrents she runs forward.

"Mom, dad you're ok!" she gasps. "You have to pack and leave, something terrible has happened to and in Badon."

A Wary Trillion

Trillion felt better as she heard the more normal sounds of the forest fauna as they travel to where Mora was leading them. None-the-less, she was on edge form the strange occurrences in Badon, but the nature and the wide spread destruction.

They finally reach the farmhouse. Mora moved forward and called out to her mother and father. Trillion hung back and examined the area, going so far as to cast detect magic and slowly turn around surveying the whole area. horizontally and vertically.

When she had started out on her journey of discovery of this world did she never thought it would prove to be so complicated by strange occurrences.

If she sees nothing out of the ordinary them she will move up towards the farmhouse and introduce herself to Mora's parents.

Silence and Sound

Ninian spoke in response to Selunine's question. "My lady... Selunine I believe it was? ... I wish I knew the answer to your question. I myself was afraid when we approached the city's borders, and though we saw people within, I was afraid to enter because of the walking dead. However, I was confident that with Mora's power we would be alright. There was no need to test that power though, as they never approached us."

The fey nodded. "The events are most strange. Something did hold the skeletons approach. If we are to free Badon from its necrotic hold we may need to find a way to harness that power. But all will be dealt with in time."

Selunine continued on in silence following the katana wielding woman through the forest. Her thoughts turned to the events at Badon and she shook her head in disgust. Some power had flowed through the old man in her vision to transform an entire city into an army of skeletons while another power held them at bay. The matter needed looking into and she would have to unearth what she could.

The sounds of life could not be heard inside the forest, and that unnerved her to no end. Selunine watched the wood shaded passage warily, her violet eyes watched closely for any sign of peril. She found none. The passage through the forest remained silent until they reached a house and the songs of birds could be heard again. Selunine narrowed her eyes and warily approached the house with the others.

Meet the Parents.

At the sound of Mora's voice, the dog stands up and lets out a yelp. Running out to greet her, it bounds along playfully, hopping, panting and nuzzling, then proceeding to move towards the others and sniff them, enjoying their new scents.

When Mora runs up to the elderly people, the woman cries out. "Mora! What's the matter dear? You seem so distressed. It truly is a beautiful day, and the birds are chirping. It's wonderful. What do you mean there's something that happened in the city?"

The man looks past Mora briefly, and then asks, "And who are your friends? Come now, introduce us."

As Mora speaks with her parents, Trillion scans the grounds for magical residue. As her eyes glow with a bright light, she looks around the field, and begins sensing some magical auras. However, as time goes on, she also feels that the most powerful aura is simply a faint aura. However, not enough time had elapsed to determine the location of this aura. Glancing back towards the city however, Trillion sees a brilliant glow. Whatever had happened to the city, it had been very powerful magic.

TrillionStill Wary

Trillion continues her detect magic to lean more about the source of the aura.

THe glance towards Badon showed the brilliance of powerful magic still lingering there. She is forced to look away from it, so that she focus pn the source of the faint aura of the area.

"Selunine, there is something about this place." a faint aura, that I have not yet identified, perhaps you can?"

To gaze at magic

Selunine looked to Trillion and nodded. She was still wary of this land and the walking dead had unnerved her to no end. Any knowledge of hwere they were would be welcome. The fey enchantress opened her awareness fully searching for the tell tale glow of a magical aura. Violet eyes begin to glow brighter as the power of the simple cantrip flowed through her. Soon magical auras began to appear before her. Selunine intensified her gaze studying the auras the matrices that bore them.

(OOC: Casts Detect Magic. Selunine will make a Spellcraft check to identify the nature of the auras detected. She will also make a Knowledge: Arcana check if applicable.)

Trillion

Trillion not quite understanding the reason for the residual aura of magic such as she found on the farm, Goes over in her mind what they might be usi9ng her knowledge of arcane things and the crafting of spells to work on what she found on the farm and the residue from Badon.

Auras

As Selunine stares about the field faint magical auras come fall into her arcane gaze. Hey fey eyes surveyed the auras, studying them each in turn. The many wet spots around the area glowed faintly and the enchantress narrowed her eyes as the many auras came into view. There were too many to identify individually but none were of great power so the knowledge of their basic nature would have to suffice for now.

Selunine sighed and gazed back in the direction of the pyre that had been Badon. She gasped as her eyes fell on the aura that emanated from the city. It glowed like a brilliant beacon in the sky vibrating with power. A slimy damp feeling came over her as looked at it, but Selunine gazed on searching for residues of the matrix that had called the magic. It was as if something had been made out of nothing. The faery returned her gaze to the field finding many of the auras were of a similar nature, though lacking the feeling of wetness. Were they the magical shrapnel of what happened in Badon?

She turned to Trillion and placed a hand on the woman's shoulder as she pointed to Badon. "My friend do your eyes see what I see?"

Just an ordinary horse.

Achilles seeing everyone doing their normal things, some casting spells and whatnot. (Can i even see if someone cast detect magic?) Noticing the large farm in the middle of nowhere he ask
"Seen any stone horses lately? What about some crazy dogs dash by? Seems as if i can't find my dogs nor horses after fire in Badon."
Achilles be ever so creative he decides to draw a map of all the entrances in Badon with a stick in the dirt.
(OOC: Because fire does not burn down fences right?)

Mora


Mora grabbed her father's arm.

"Dad, you have got to pack up and leave the area, a great arcane disaster has befallen Badon and it has been destroyed. Almost everyone is dead and the dead have been turned into undead. They have ripped off their own skin and flesh and are shambling skeletons."

"Please we have to hurry."
