[Part 1 - JOURNEY TO THE CRYPT] 2: Eyes in the Dark

Post by admin » Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:18 pm

As you all sit back, bellies full and your gear stowed away, a light breeze ruffles the leaves on the surrounding trees. More leaves float to their resting place on the ground, yellowed by their expired usefulness. You realize that from here, you are quite far from civilization. You are definitively far from the cozy home you call Kassen village!

The sounds of the forest is all around you - branches squeaking, leaves being stepped on as if a giant was running through them - but further observation reveals that this racquet is generated by a couple of squirrels, moving about in the forest. You still hear howling in the distance, although this seems nearer as you are listening to it and not walking yourselves.

You also realize that sleeping on the ground would have been quite an ordeal, as you see that it is still humid from previous rains. The tents, although heavy to transport, will afford you much shelter from the natural elements at this time of year. And your blankets will serve you well to protect you during your slumbering hours.

You also were able to find plenty of dry wood nearby, enough to keep your campfire alight all night! This will come handy to keep the fire going, and provide illumination, as the sky is darkened by many clouds.

You also realize the pure pleasure that this simple campfire grants to each of you - far from the dirty smells that seems to always linger over populated area, or the noisy activity of everyday life in the city. This is your first taste of adventuring... shared around a warming campfire...

OUT OF CHARACTER
You estimate your position (on the trail map) do be somewhere between The Broken Glade and the The Grey Lake. If all goes well, you should arrive at the Crypt tomorrow evening!

 

[ooc]You are free to discuss anything you wish before my next validation in a couple of days!
Also, as a reminder, English is not my primary language - I try to write as best I can, but if some phrases seems weird or unnatural, blame my birthplace! lol[/ooc]

After eating and giving a little to sneak, Ezren takes a look through his spellbook to figure out what he is going to learn for tomorrow.
He wonders what else the village has in store to test are skills in getting the everflame. Ezren states to the group,
[talk]This does not look like it will be easy, not your simple go light the lantern and come back.[/talk]

Merisiel shrugs [talk]If those illusions were anything to do with this quest, then I expect we'll be taxing our minds more than our brawn.[/talk] She grins at Valeros. [talk]Looks like you might be made redundant...[/talk]

Valeros looks to Merisiel and grunts [talk]Pack mule is all I'll be if that’s all that’s out there.[/talk] [talk]But when we find who's casting those illusions cold steel is what you will need and I'll be there[/talk]

Ezren says to Valeros [talk]Sorry that you are a pack mule, but they did not provide us one. But I am sure we will need your skills in some way down the road and then we would be glad that you were with us.[/talk]

and then looking to Merisiel says [talk]How are you feeling of lately? Has your stomach finally calmed down?[/talk]

As the sun begins to set, Kyra murmurs, [talk]Safe journey, Sarenrae. We will pray for the return of your warmth tomorrow.[/talk]

She interjects in the conversation about the illusions, [talk]If Ezren's observation about the pipe smoke is correct, then it's our own mentors who test us. Wisdom may indeed be of more use than cold steel.[/talk]

Ezren Interjects [talk]Yea, I think it might be more brain then brawn. Who knows though, we still might need some muscle somewhere down the line.[/talk]

Sneak moves about on Ezren's shoulder and says [talk]Good to here, Merisiel. Yea, good chance our mentors will be testing us on this journey Kyra.[/talk]

After sneak being restless on Ezren's shoulder he moves into the robe to settle down for the night and Ezren then let's out a big yawn. Ezren says
[talk]I think sneak has the right idea. So good night everyone. Hope our night is uneventful and everyone gets a good rest.[/talk]

Valeros gets up and can be heard grumbling something but nothing intelligible. Just before he goes into one of the three tents he turns and comments [talk]I think all of us will be tested and Kyra be careful when you wake me, least you lose a finger since I sleep with my weapons drawn.[/talk] Valeros is seen crawling into his tent.

Kyra nods at Valeros' warning as she heads for the last tent. To Merisiel, she comments, [talk]Stay alert. And don't forget to wake me when it's my turn.[/talk]

[talk]Yeah, yeah...[/talk] Merisiel waves Kyra's concerns away. She sits down on the log by the fire and almost immediately gets bored.

Indeed, the night is very boring for Merisiel, half an hour after her companions went to sleep.
As expected, Valeros, Kyra and Ezren did not take long to find their dream state, and Merisiel is very alone with her fire.

Luckily, the campfire helps to keep her warm, as she scans the area back and forth. The only sounds she can hear is those annoying rodents moving through the dry leaves of the forest floor, and the occasional Owl, which might be hunting those nasty pests. The night is dark, but thankfully the fire gives much illumination to Merisiel's elven eyes. From time to time, Merisiel gets up and walks around the camp, checking the area as her duty demands... how boring!

SUDDENLY...

Suddenly, Merisiel hears a noise and spots see 3 wolves trying to sneak up on her!
They are lean, starving predators looking at Merisiel for a quick meal!

[ooc]I did some research on Wolf behavior...[/ooc]
The sounds of battle awakens all the sleepers who are now prone in their respective tents. Getting out of a tent is a move action, and you exit prone

[ooc]Since Merisiel has a clear picture of what is happening, only she gets a Map this round![/ooc]

ROUND 1:
  1. Merisiel :valid:
    [talk]Ahh![/talk] Merisiel cries out. [talk]Everyone wake up![/talk] She then moves to L13 K13 and opens the 'door' to Valeros' tent. [talk]Come on meat shield! Up and at 'em![/talk]
  2. Wolves :valid:
  3. Valeros <- Single action only
    Note: When prone Valeros raises his head to looks at his toes, toward the tent's exit, he sees Merisiel directly in front of his tent (blocking the exit), being attacked by some type of quadruped!
  4. Kyra <- Single action only
  5. Ezren <- Single action only
ROUND 2:
  1. Merisiel
  2. Wolves + VALIDATION
  3. Valeros
  4. Kyra
  5. Ezren
[ae]ALLIES:
  • Ezren: 7/7
    Kyra: 10/10
    Merisiel: 10/10
    Valeros: 12/12
FOES:
  • 3x Wolves
ACTIVE SPELLS:
  • none
HERO POINTS:
  • x1: All players

[yell]Nyah![/yell] You hear Merisiel cry out, but whether it's from pain, shock, confusion or hunger you couldn't tell. You hear the swish as her rapier starts moving in an attack routine.
