Jason Ukiah slowly came back round to what was going on he kept hearing muffled voices and guessed it was best to make sure that he meant no harm to anyone, even though moments before he was ready to loosen an arrow into one of em....
With the daze leaving him he looked up towards his hunting knife and now saw, beyond his knife, what appeared to be an old inn covered in plants which Jason couldn’t work out how he didn’t see it earlier it was as if by magic he had been blinded from seeing it....
He began to crawl now he heard a voice call to him he guessed that there were now at least four people a Women, a monk, a ranger and now another man for his voice seemed deep. Jason Ukiah now realised that his bow had broken underneath him and was utterly useless. Now up Jason looked, vision still a blur but could see someone looking towards him in a rush he crawled reaching for his hunting knife now his only protection against what is to come...
He started to stand, looking up towards the tree he just fell from the cant see where his hooded robe is but he knows it is up there. He deems it best to make himself known to all “I Am Jason Ukiah Of The Star Hunter Clan I Mean You No Harm I Am Simply ....”He cut himself off not knowing how to explain why he followed the monk for he himself didn’t know why he had ....it just seemed.....just seemed like something he ... something that he would have to do ... even though he left much of his hunting gear behind, Jason felt as though he should pretend that he could still do some kind of damage without His silver yew bow ..”My father will kill me for breaking my bow again after it took him a whole week to make...” he thought to himself.
So there he Stood All muddy and bloody with a hunting knife in his right hand being placed back in its sheath and his left hand being used to try and help himself focus again. He shouted out again “I Mean No Harm” And started to walk forward towards the inn.
(0oc: My internet was shut down, i just got it back i will be posting sometime tonight, sorry for the delay.. But really quick i will try to clear up some confusion about assumptions. My charater is a half elf, the other half i cant really tell you yet, but my charater can feel the aura's and the presence of others. The reason i said i could see light through the door was because the basement was pitch black and upstairs was lighter because of the red moon and i could tell the difference.. I hope that helps out a little bit. I'm jumping off to finish working, but i will be back later tonight...)
Now what? She heard many voices from the top of the stairs. She picked up her large demonic sword and headed up the stairs. “Alright I’m here, Mivara SilverShadow to those who don’t know” She glances at Seloust. She can’t help but wonder what so many people are doing at this unknown inn, in the middle of nowhere. She slams her blade tip against the ground and looks around. She can feel the presence of 4 other people, Why would all these people appear on a night like this.
This has to be more than peer luck, something doesn’t quite sit right with her. She feels the ground begins to shake again. “now what?” A large dragon flies over the heads of the unsuspecting adventurers. She looks up to see a large red dragon circling over there location. …

Counting fates pawns
The Watcher points at each person in turn for a moment as if counting before returning to writing in his book.
When the dragon appears high above, a large grin instantly shows on his face. He scribes down a bit more and then closes the book, making it vanish as he does so.
That being done he stands slowly, stretching his legs and looks up once more, his analytical mind piecing together all of the actions that have occurred in the last few minutes. The Strands of Fate are in this, that much he is certain. But even his Watcher's eyes cannot discern how these people and the creature above are tied together. Strange... never before has Fate seemed so cloudy to him. The eyes granted to him by the Ritual should have allowed him to easily see the interwoven destinies of all involved. Confusion and interest show clearly on his face as he backs slowly into a corner of the ruined inn, beginning to feel the first tingles of dragon fear, but showing little, as of yet, of its effects.
Jason Froze he heard someone call out “alright I’m here, Mivara SilverShadow to those who don’t know” a female by the sound of her voice but he can’t see them so if unsure. All of a sudden Jason feels a rumble and looks up..... O the terror that strikes his heart it takes him a moment to do anything....
“O By The Midnight moon If I but Had My bow Intact ....(a few curses but are mumbled so can’t be heard)” Jason quickly leaps up the tree to retrieve his hooded robe and quiver though what use it is now without his bow to send them flying....
He heard the sound of a book being closed as he jumped down he looked and guessed that the monk had got up and ran away. Though cared he didn’t for the monk anymore he was more concerned with the matter at hand The big red dragon circling above It appeared to be waiting for something...
Rather than be caught out in the open without any real defence other than a hunting knife and his 3 remaining arrows then he remembered His robe and put it on as he darted towards the inn’s door.
Jason side stepped the elf just inside the door and then stopped behind him and turned and said “O Forgive me my rudeness but the current situation needs quick thinking I am Jason Ukiah Of the star hunter clan, I mean you no harm”
Jason looked about the room trying to see if the inn had any bows of any sort lying around or hung up.....

(Ooc: I'm trying to make this a bit more simple for me. Everything I say will be in blue, things i hear or other people say will be in green, and any personal thoughts of mine will be in black. I'm hoping this will make things a bit easier. Just let me know if anyone is bothered by it. I'll also make my Ooc's bold)
Kel uprights a barstool at the back of the inn and sits down. A robed half-elf, holding a large black sword, appears from the basement introducing herself as Mivara Silvershadow. she seems kind of interesting and bedable too, just like the Huntress.
Before he can speak the ground begins to shake and everyone looks up to see a large red dragon. "Oh great, just what we need!" especially with people whose skills I don't know, and don't know if I can trust.
The watcher puts away his book and stands, slowly backing toward a corner. "What have I gotten myself into?" I should have stayed home with Riniel.
He can feel the fear creeping in, as someone runs in the door side stepping the Huntress, and babling about who he is. Then the newcomer starts searching the walls. "Jason, I assume you are looking for a weapon since you seem not to have one other than that dagger. I'm not sure you will find one here with the condition of this place."
Kel looks aroung the room as he jumps off the stool and lands nimbly on his toes. He reaches under his cloak and pulls out his swords. "Well, does anyone have any suggestions. This will be a terrible fight if we have to engage that monster."
He looks toward the watcher, but speaks to the whole group. "I can get one of you out of here maybe two, but I fear that may be all the time I have. My honor prevents me from doing that, so I vote to fight but we need a plan, now."

Selost stood their at the door to the inn and awaited the strangers reply. I Am Jason Ukiah Of The Star Hunter Clan I Mean You No Harm I Am Simply ....” But then Jason stopped himself. For what reason he didnt know.
Jason walked into the inn, dirty and bloodied and said again I mean no harm
Then Mivara emerged from the basement and adressed them all. Alright I’m here, Mivara SilverShadow to those who don’t know She looked at seloust and he replied. nice of you to join us. Don't look at me like that, i'm as confused as you are. He looked around the room pointing out various people. This is jason, he just fell out of a tree, This monk here is erm, well... all i know is he is a monk... This huntress here is rethia, his is Kel and you know me! What where you doing down there?
Then the ground began to shake and a huge dragon flew overhead. Everybody looked at and starting shouting things but he couldnt make them out over the noice. He tried his best to call to the others. EVERYONE TO THE BASEMENT, I DONT KNOW ANY OF YOUR CAPIBILITYS BUT I SURE AS HELL KNOW I COULDN'T TAKE ON A DRAGON. THE BASEMENT WLL BE SAFE FOR NOW, WE CAN PLAN OUR NEXT MOVE THERE At this he ran to the basement door and signaled for them all to get inside.
Mivara quickly listens to what Seloust has to say to the group. The Dragon fear slowly starts to set in as the dragon circles lower and lower. She can see everyone else start to shake. She quickly makes her way into the basement with Seloust. She waits for the rest of the group to gather in the basement before she speaks. “Ok, I have a plan, but I need to know that I can trust all of you.” Mivara look around at the group, she doesn’t know these people all that well and doesn’t know if they are capable of taking down a full grown red dragon. She needs to get these people out of here. She remembers that this inn had an escape tunnel at one time. She could only hope that it was still there and intact. She starts knocking on the stone walls of the basement, she reaches the wall where the little girls image used to be, and slowly pulls open the hidden door. The path is dark, and over run with plant life. “Alright, we need to get out of here while we can, I have a feeling that this isn’t going to be the only dragon that’s going to show up. It’s just like her childhood memories all over again. She goes first, the tunnels are complicated and she knows them well. After about an hour of walking single file Mivara stops at a small ladder and slowly climbs up. The ladder leads into a small opening deeper within the forest. She waits for the group to gather…….

When the call goes out to flee to the basement the Watcher looks casually at the dragon descending from the sky, then to the others in the area.
Without a word he descends the staircase and follows Mivara into the darkness.
The constant scratching of quill on parchment accompanies him as he walks through the dark, writing in his book and never glancing up even when the group turns corners, yet somehow managing not to run into anything or anyone. His body heat has returned so he has become clearly visible to those who can see such things.
When the group reaches the ladder he makes a final notation in the book and closes it once again. His book simply ceases to be. The Watcher then glances around and up, then gives Mivara a questioning glance, as if to ask "What's next?" without saying a word.
O if anyone is confused about the sword pm me if you want to know where i got it from.
Jason Ukiah span about trying to see any kind of weapon now he didn’t intend to rush straight into anything without a real weapon. Face the dragon outside or run into the basement of an old inn with people he has never met before.....
And then Jason saw out of the corner of his eye a sheathed sword lying against the wall. He wasn’t taking any chances he grabbed it and ran into the basement seeing the open tunnel he kept on running. He stopped when he reached Mivara and the watcher.
“ Ok what the hell are we gonna do” He slips the sheathed sword onto his belt looking at the hilt he gives it a bit of a wipe revelling a sapphire in the hilt he quickly hide his weapon with his robes and looks to check that no one noticed him doing so.
He looks back to see if anyone is coming and shouts “Hurry up if your coming this tunnel doesn’t look to safe” he can’t make out what’s at the other end of the tunnel so just waits.

Kel watches as the others start heading toward the basement. He slowly backs toward the basement door, while keeping his eyes toward the sky. Blending into the shadows and nearly disappearing he waits. All the others are below but Jason. Kel hears someone pounding on the walls below and then hears the distinct sound of stone grinding against stone. Perhaps there is a passage down there. Then he swears he hears Mivara say something about more dragons. Now how exactly would she know that? Jason spins about still searching. All of a sudden he dashes toward a wall and grabs a sword lying there. I don't remeber seeing that before. After grabbing the sword Jason runs down into the basement. Kel takes one last look up, steps out of the shadows, and heads down himself.
The basement is empty and a tunnel is open in the back wall. Kel welcomes the darkness as he steps into the tunnel and draws his swords. He doesn't expect trouble, but he isn't taking any chances. He takes his time reveling in the dark as he slowly makes his way toward the group. He stays back a bit from the main group. If anything happens to follow them down this tunnel, it will have to make it past him first.
Finally he can see Mivara start to ascend and the others follow closely behind. When he gets to the ladder he quickly climbs up and comes out into a clearing with the others standing around. It seems now everyone is looking toward Mivara for answers.
"Mivara, you have gotten us away from the immediate threat. For that I at least thank you" He pauses a moment looking at each of the others. He stares at the Watcher a bit longer before addressing the group. "We are past the immediate danger. However, I think we need to know a bit about each other before we can continue with anything. Why are we each here, what are our skills, and how we can best work together?"
He stops talking and walks up to Mivara, taking her a bit aside from the rest of the group. He is speaking to her but low enough so the others can't hear.

So let me get this straight...
(Jason... you stayed behind in order to grab a sword that no one else could see... then plowed through the entire group in order to run in front of everyone and urge us to on? Hmmm... I might have to take insult to being bowled out of the way...)
The sun slowly begins to rise as the group exits the tunnels...
Mivara waits for the group to gather and listens to what they each have to say. She answers Kel's question to the group first. She looks down lost in thought as she addresses the group. “The abandoned inn was a childhood memory of mine, I came here because I have been drawn to this place my entire life. I have seen it in my dreams, every night sense I left.” She looks at the group and waits for each person to tell their tale. In between Kel pulls her aside and asks her a question. She takes a moment to think before she whispers the answer back to him...
(ye my guy did kinda barg passed you when going into the tunnel back at the inn, and then tell you all to hurry up also the sword incase anyone is unsure about it is cursed and was left there by the weird little girl but in character i dont know that and i dont think anyone else will unless they can sense evil or somthing from my robes. Also you all notice that jason is very shifty)(will post my thing later busy)

He Joined the group a little lates and saw that Mivara was just finishing a story. She asked the others why they were there also.
At this point he decided to chip in. My story isnt great. he said. I lost all my memories prior to my 16th birthday except for the fact i knew that the ruined in behind me was were i was born. I came here to see if it would shed some light on my situation
He then stepped back and listend to what the other had to say.
(Ooc i know its a little short but im a little 'out of whack' right now.)
