Kel turns away from Mivara as the Watcher shows his open palms to her. "I do beleive,what this fellow is trying to say is that he is just here to observe and record." He reaches into his robes and pulls out a flask, taking a deep swig. "You see I've dealt with Watchers before. A strange group they are, lots of customs and such, and most of them don't talk."
He walks a bit, milling around the group. "So I guess it is time for my story. Well, there isn't much to say really. I work at a weapons shop and provide security for a local tavern in my city. I have a shaded past that I am not always proud of but, I welcome the knowledge and wisdom I gained from it. As for why I am here, I heard a child's voice in a dream telling me my assistance was needed and calling me by a name I have not heard for what seems like ages. I came to figure out what the situation was and I'm still here because I haven't found the answer and duty binds me."
He walks over to Rethia and stops before her, a slight grin spread across his lips as he bows slightly before her. "Huntress, would you join me in hunting down some food. We need to rest and eat before we continue on"
Rethia looks at the Elvin women. " To be honest I don't know what drew me to that place. I guess I saw it in a dream with a young girl playing and laughing in the inn. Then I saw that she was trapped. It was dark and the smell of old rotten food was over whelming. I walked till I found the inn but when I got there all I found was ghosts. Then when I went on a hunting trip and circled back to the inn I noticed that apparently you and your companion had entered. I heard you scream and you sounded so much like the girl in my dream."
Rethia looks at the Elvin women then at the watcher, who was writing in his book again. " Please good watcher may I see your book to see what it is that you have observed. It might explain the weird dreams we all have had for this place and what the gods want with such a unique party at this place in the middle of nowhere long since forgotten."
It then accord to her that she was asked to go get food. she reaches into her pack and pulls out the deer meet that was in her pack and starts salting it down. Then she turns to the man that addressed her " I think this will help some but as you said we need to go hunting I'd be more then glad to join you.
She then produced a small figurine that looked like a tiger “inthuul Z'RESS.”
A Large mist starts to form then a large tiger with two heads stands before Rethia. “ Come lets go hunt”

“This is good a place as any to set up a small camp, But perhaps we should move closer to the forest, for better cover.” Mivara walks over to the edge of the forest and slowly starts to set up a small area for herself. Then she slowly starts to create a camp fire for the group. After she gets the fire to where she thinks it should be, she sits down next to it. She removes a couple of small viles from her robes, one a thick black liquid the other a red translucent. She mixes them the drinks the mixture. She replaces the viles into her pockets and begins to meditate while she waits for the hunters to return.
She slowly sinks deep into her own mind. Memories swirl in her mind, she cant seem to grasp a single one. They fly around her, confused and lost. As she takes her time and her breathing becomes shallow and slow she slowly begins to focus on one memory.
The image of the little girl slowly comes into focus, her face is twisted in pain and sadness. Then another image appears. A man laying dead on the ground covered in his own blood, his face is unrecognizable to her at this point. She can see the little girl crying over his dead body. His body was laying directly in front of the abandoned inn. Only the inn is still intact and looks as if it is still in use. A group starts to gather around the body, she cant see any of there faces. Then a loud roar can be heard from the skies and the people on the ground scatter. The scene cuts to darkness and all that can be heard is the screams of people in pain. The scene reappears, bodies lay massacred all over the dirt paths, and the inn is on fire. The small girl stands alone among the dead bodies, She is alone, the last known to be alive. She is unharmed, but cries for the pain of her lost loved ones.
Mivara slowly comes out of her meditation. She looks around to see if the hunters have returned yet, and who else was around. She motions for Seloust to come to her side….
((0oc: if everyone could please go to the Q&A and put there race and class it would be very helpfull.. Thank you everyone... ~Mivara~ ))

Seloust listens to what everyone has to say then sits on the ground. Great, now im even less likely to find out about my childhood now the inn is off limits he thought to himself.
He saw Mivara set up a camp fire then sink slowly to a seated possition. She took to vials and dranks from them and then began to meditate. Funny, she drunk from viles just like those in the inn while we were stuck in the baasement.i shall have to inqure about them sometime.
She appered to be in destress, something in the meditation was bothering her. She opened her eyes and signaled for him to come over. He walked over and said you wish to speak with me Mivara?
Seloust walks over to her. “Yeah I need to speak with you. I think I have discovered something interesting while I was in my meditation. I’m starting to think the young girl is…well I think it’s me. She looks for Seloust reaction…
Jason Looked around the group as the Watcher turned to Mivarna hands open and palms facing up. Unable to see the watchers hands take a deep breath and thinks out his current situation...
Jason Listens as Kel walks about the group speaking of his past at a weapon store and being a guard for a local tavern etc and then goes to start to talk about a girl at which Jason’s side starts to go cold so he just pulls his robes tight around himself trying to keep warm while he listens to the stories as he waits to tell his chance to tell his...
Kel then walks over to Rethia and asks her to accompany her upon her hunt she agreed but after given the story of herself and just explains that she is unknowing truly as to why she came but that she truly only came because of a dream of a girl... At this Jason’s side really starts to become cold. All the time the watcher was simply writing away in his book as rethia asks to read it. Jason stands and starts to pace to try and get warm now his whole body was feeling cold as if covered in ice then he looks across seeing the elf pull out a small tiger figure and speak causing a sudden mist from which a ravenous tiger with two heads emerged At this Jason took a step back and stopped pacing Rethia then says to go hunt...
Mivara then sets up a small fire Jason comes quickly to be near the fire and it makes him feel warmer.....Slightly.... she signals for Seloust to to come over and says somthing to him but Jason doesn’t hear it he seems too cold to listen so...
Jason finally decides it’s best to tell his tale. He sits. He speaks in a calm slow voice “Well my tale isn’t much of an adventure either.... I was born under the stars as is custom with my father’s clan ‘The Star Hunters’ and from a young age have been forced to learn the ways of hunting and remaining out of sight my father is a master Fletcher (ooc i think they are the ones who make bows correct me if I’m wrong) and my mother a simple hunter. I was out hunting a boar for Mother to put on a spit roast when i saw the watcher go by and i felt as if something was telling me to follow him.... The rest you know” At this point Jason has become very cold and starts to shake violently.

The Watcher immediately steps away from Rethia holding the book away from her with a very disapproving expression on his face.
Kel steps back a bit at the mention of the Watcher's book. "That book is his record. All he knows and sees is in there. However, Watcher's are observers and musn't interfere. He has sworn a sacred oath. If he shows anyone that book, fate would hang in the balance, and his oath would be broken." Kel paces back and forth a bit then continues. "This is for all of you, I know it may be tempting to want to see the Watcher's book. It is not a wise idea, and would most likely lead to your death."
He sits down cross legged near the fire Mivara makes. Rethia summons an amazing tiger. Jason tells his story. It is strange but Kel has noticed Jason's temperature dropping during the telling of everyone's tales.
After Jason's story is over and the elven man goes over toward Mivara, Kel stands and stretches. He walks over toward Mivara leans close to the man's ear and whispers, "When Rethia and I return, I would like to know your name as I am sure the rest of us would as well." Turning away he walks back toward Rethia with an almost feral smile as his eyes begin to turn black. "Yes, I believe we shall hunt now." With that he dances a bit around Rethia and her animal companion then dashes into the woods. this is going to be fun

((0oc: I was kinda waiting for Seloust reaction but i'm gonna post ahead a little bit.. Feel free to back post..))
Mivara sits next to the fire as she is lost deep in her own mind. How could something like this happen? Is what she saw true? Was that her father, laying dead in the streets? She remembers the exact date her father died, but she could never remember how it occurred. Could this be the answer she is looking for, or is it some sort of trick from a dark presence? It has been almost one hundred and fifty years to the day that her father died. She takes a moment to take a deep breath and try to sense any evil that might be lingering around. Her head quickly snaps up and she looks directly at Jason. Something is wrong, she can sense evil coming from him. She stands and walks over to his side and sits. She leans over and whispers to him. Then waits for his reply.....
Rethia watches as the other dark elf runs into the forest. Is this a challenge? she wonders to herself.
She then turns to VELDRIN "Lets show him how to hunt shall we?"
The tiger gives a loud roar in agreement and in a flash is gone with Rethia close behind. They quickly gain ground on the dark elf and just when Rethia and Veldrin get close Veldrin morphs into mist and reappears on the other side of the drow and reappeared. Then it started chasing the other dark elf back to Rethia.
“Now do you like my way of hunting?” Rethia asks
Just then a loud crash came from the other side of Veldrin. She turned her head just in time to see a rhino plow through and hit her square in the chest. Veldrin quickly claws at the creature.
Rethia turns her head to the other drow “ Looks like dinner to me care to help me kill it before it kills my tiger.”
Rethia quickly runs up to the rhino and draws out her twin axes.
He had been traveling through the woods for days now. Exhausted, he had laid down next to a fallen tree for cover to get a few hours of shut eye before continuing on his way. He covered himself with his blanket to help hide him while he slept.
Sometime through the night, he was awoken by the sounds of hugh wings. He jumped up and quickly gathered himself. As he watched the dragon continue south, he finished packing everthing back up into his pack. He knew he would be needed where ever this beast decided to land. Using his might, he restrang his iron bow to make it ready for service. Slipping his quiver/pack back to its usual place, hepicked up his helm and said his prayer to start the day and then slipped it back on to hide his true form from the rest of the world.
He was quickly making his way through the woods when him thought he heard the sound of screaming. Under his helm, his wasn't sure it had obscurred distant sounds in the past. When he saw the dragon quickly change course, he guessed he had been right. He too changed direction and started running to the east.
After a short distance through the forest, he could only watch as the dragon swooped in over an old building. Then it climbed back up and began stocking its prey from above. He eased himself next to the wall of inn and he prepare his attack on the dragon. He knew his best shot was going to be when it swooped back in on its next attack. He nocked an arrow and waited. From the sound of the people instead this building, they needed his assistance with this beast.
As his calmed himself to make his shot, the sound of his own heart racing in his ears gave way to the sound of people fleeing into the basement. A moment later, it was him and the dragon left here as the people instead obviously had left by secret means. He eased himself around the building to to door on the far side. He entered the building and went to the basement. The smell of fear within this room was relentless. It almost hid that the scent of that one female that caught his attention, it was that most exotic scent he ever smelled. Tracking her scent, he entered the hidden tunnel. It wasn't long before he was forced to give up this chase. The passageway got to the point it was to small for him to follow anymore.
He was forced to turn back to the dragon again. The paintings on the basement walls were the first thing to seize his attention this time. Although the scent of thhe people that had fled was dissapating, the smell of fear was still here. His stomach churned as he watched these paintings, oblivious to the dragon above. The fear was emminating from these paintings. Following a hugh bellow of a warcry to clear himself of the effect these paintings were having on him, he began to bless and exocise this place to free these souls.
Kel sprints through the trees on alert for prey. He knows Rethia is close behind with her tiger. Suddenly the tiger is in front of him. He drops to a roll and springs back up in the opposite direction. He's sprintnig back toward Rethia with the tiger close behind. “Now do you like my way of hunting?” Rethia asks. Kel opens his mouth to respond when he hears a loud crash behind him. He skids to a stop a few yards from Rethia, turning his head to take in the scene as a rhino hits the tiger.
A cloud passes over the sun, casting deeper shadows over the forest. Kel fades from sight and reappears behind Rethia with a whisper in her ear before he is gone again. "I like your hunting style, my dear, but if you are hunting me you'll have to do better than that."
Kel reappears a few feet away, his swords drawn. The huntress notices him and turns her head. “Looks like dinner to me care to help me kill it before it kills my tiger.” Kel watches as she rushes in with her axes. I knew this was going to be fun. "Yes, lets save your friend."
Kel rushes in toward the rear of the rhino and slashes at the soft tissue of it's legs as he passes behind it. His blades bit deep on both rear legs and he hopes it was enough to sever the muscle there and hinder the rhino's movement. He skids to a stop, slowing his momentum as he turns to see the results.

Jason whispers something back to mivara then he appears to pause mid sentence.
His head quickly turns to the sound “what in the.....” upon fearing a creature heading straight for them Jason pulls out the sword he had acquired earlier.
The moment Jason hand touches the hilt of the blade a queer glow starts to emit from him He himself doesn’t see it he just notices that the darkness suddenly seemed to become more clear He eyed the blade it was about 3 foot long double sided but one side glowed more than the other . Jason whirled it above his head and stabbed forward with it. It was lighter than it had been in the sheath as Jason was swinging it he could feel himself getting colder and colder.
He guessed that whatever made the sound was scared off by his might blade He took a better look at his new weapon It appeared to have some kind of runes he had never seen before on it ( by that i mean he can’t work out what they say) He sheaths it and walks back towards the fire which seemed to be slowly dying down and finished whatever he was saying to mivara Gave a big yawn and went to sleep inches away from the fire as if the heat wasn’t effecting him at all.
