Once the gryphon landed, Liar could tell that some sort of understanding had come between Dahkore and the beast. Judging by the emanations from the minotaur it was definitely a trained swordmage, elven style. That made him a curiosity, and dangerous. Despite the calm demeanor of the paladin, Liar decided to help even the playing field just in case the creature became violent. He focused his feelings into a sense of calm and serenity and guided them toward the beast. He smiled as he did so, in part because the calming effect influenced him, but also because this particular talent had saved his life a few times before.

DM:

Note: I forgot to mention it earlier, but when you send a PM to someone who has successfully "thought-sensed" you, please send the PM to me also.

Dahkore, your check exceeded the Easy DC, but only by 1. So, Ololamin, your reaction is really up to you, BUT Dahkore was very polite and diplomatic, and that should be taken into consideration. Keep in mind that every character reacts differently to intimidation or diplomacy!

Sigil, your Empathy check pierced through Ololamin's SHLD, so Ololamin, you are beginning to feel relaxed and at ease.

"Right. Since ye seem to be able to talk to 'im, maybe ye can translate fer me." Liar nodded at the paladin and looked over at the white minotaur. "I know yer a swordmage. I can sense ye was trained by the elven folk. That says somethin' about ye but I don't know what, yet." He puts down his crossbow. "Now if'n yer willin' to talk. We are as well. Ye can start by tellin' us who ye are, where yer from, and why yer runnin' like all blazes down the side of a mountain with spears in yer back. Tell us that and we'll see if we can help ye." Liar sits down in the wet grass, the storm not seeming to bother him.

---

OOC: I know that Dahkore doesn't really need to translate so if Ololamin wants to reply directly that's just fine with me.

Also Shawna is threatening to be mean and I don't want to give her the chance. Razz

The minotaur slowly pulls out his Broadsword from his sling on his back, and holds it in both hands. It is pointing directly up, with the width part of the blade facing him and away. The sword has etched elven script with in it glowing blue. The Script read, Sword of Journey. He then pointed the sword up toward the mountain with the sword held in one hand, and the other over his chest, presumably where his heart is. Then pointed to his head.

Elven-
I know nothing of any of your kind. I know only of the Elves whom have taught me. They have know of our kind, and rarely speak of it. Why, You would have to ask them, they kept mum. I beg of you please, I must proceed with my journey. My mind is foggy, and I don't remember much of where i'm from, the elves just told me i'm from lands much further to the west, and that I would find some answers where ever my calling guided me. I was in a battle with some goblins upon that mountain, I tried to sneak around them, but they were very unwilling to let me pass. I'm just glad I had not awoken any monsters that might be in them hills, I had heard one of them grumble within their slumber. If you go with me. Be warned. The Terrain is worse than the goblin's spears. for the Icy terrain has killed more goblins, than I have within the stone walls they made their home. Chances are I know them hills better than any of you could, please follow me if you wish to come along.

Dahkore looks at the faces of those around him, clearly not understanding what is going on. He turns back to the beast.

Elven: "Many of my friends are elves too. Going into a battle with a foggy mind though will not clear it. If you are a true warrior, then you will wait a minute, let us gather ourselves for a fight, and then continue. You won't live long if you do not sit for a moment."

The gryphon translates roughly what the creature has said to him.

He motions to Sigil. Elven: "This is Sigil. He senses that you are a swordmage, and also mentioned that you were taught by elves. He wants to know your name. What are you called by? If we could get some information about you and your intentions, I know that many of us would feel better about helping you. As it is, you've got an entire village in fright, and I'm afraid my letting you live has turned them against me. Help us understand so that I can send my Fledglings back to the town and reassure them that you mean no harm. Are you able to understand the words of my comrades, so that I can stop translating both of our words?"

Elven-
My intentions have nothing to do with any of you, or your homes. A Raised blade or talon toward me could be the last thing you ever do, harming others without a reason seems to be against your nature Dahkore, I thank thee. Prepare yourselves. I shall wait right here for your return. I shall Approach no further inland. A foggy mind hasn't made me any less of a warrior. I Shall gain my memory in due time. Steel your swords and your minds, for you don't want those Mountains to be your grave. Bring Rope.

He motions them to head back toward the village, he sits on the ground, with himself knelt with his blade held across both of his hands, as though he's preparing for battle, for his back is now turned to you all, and he's staring down the mountain.

OOC: Are we still right outside the inn? Kai was still leaning against the door frame when she attacked, I thought.

* * *
Kai remains silent throughout most of the exchange, her attention focused intently on the minotaur. After several moments, her eyes flicker briefly to Dahkore, then to Sigil as he speaks. Finally, she pushes the hood of her cloak back and unfastens the clasp, packing the thick material into her travel bag with a fluid efficiency. She wears nothing but thin cloth underneath, sparsely reinforced with leather, but a massive falchion rests easily across her back, and a well-used crossbow hangs from her hip. Her pale skin nearly glows in the darkness, lending her an ethereal, wraith-like quality. Piercing green eyes, as clear and deep as cut peridot, alight once more on the holy defender.

"I require no other preparation, so I will remain here until you return."

With that, the mysterious woman slides gracefully into a crouch, resting on the balls of her feet with her back against the door frame and her crossbow resting easily across her lap. Despite her seemingly relaxed pose, however, a seasoned professional could see that her eyes still flit restlessly about, alert to any impending threat, and that controlled tension sings through her muscles, ready to launch her into action, should the need arise.

OOC: I believe we are prob about 30 feet from the door of the inn, rough estimate, as we felled him pretty quick when he took off

Sorry, right before work, don't have time for a proper post at this very instant Smile

As Kai disrobes, Liar glances over and begins to blush. "Err... lass? Tween the rain and the fact that yer wearin' gauze... ye ain't leavin' much to me imagination." He smiles broadly. "Don't worry, though. I'll try me damndest to imagine anyway!"

OOC: Okay, 30 feet is still well within range of that attack, and she's been keeping her distance from the minotaur, lest he be unfriendly, so I'll keep my post the way it is. Thanks, Shawna. Oh, and just to clarify, since Josh *obviously* has his mind in the gutter, all the important parts are either thicker, reinforced, or she's wearing a slip or a shift under them, lol.

"Well, at least we have him settled, then." Dahkore looks back at the small village, and the garrison that he could just make out between lightning strikes.

"Paladins, attention! Please report to your posts at the garrison that we were instructed to attend. I do not want a report coming back to the Aerie that you abandoned your orders. Please inform the Captain what has transpired here, with my intent to take responsibility if this creature has deceived us and is not as good natured as I believe him to be, and let him know that it has vacated the village. Also, send word to the Aerie that I have gone ahead to investigate the disturbances first hand. The Battlemaster will want to know."

He watches the paladins head towards their duties, and again faces the grouping. "I should have reported their myself; though you all seem relatively capable of keeping the situation under control, and the beast seems to have relented to at least sit a moment, I do not want to risk a sudden change of heart. Shall we be off? Does anyone have the rope that this fellow requested we bring?"

"Aye. I've got a good length of it. Maybe fifty feet or so." He pats his pack. "I'm eager to be off as well. Need somewhere nice 'n dry where we can stop for a bit to do a ritual. Was gonna take care o' it in me room but that ain't gonna happen now." He stands up and slings the bag onto his pack. "Rune, I don't want ye gettin' lost. Back ye go." The dragonfly alights on Liars shoulder and sinks into his skin with a flare of light. "Looks like we'll have to hold off on that conversation, Ruby."

DM:

Okay, everything seems to be going well so far, but I do feel the need to stress on certain fact: If a race is NOT mentioned here, then it technically does not exist on Elaria, or if it does exist it does so in myth and legend only.

Anyway...

The path out of the village is cut through a cleft in the mountains, with a trail leading steeply upward into the foothills of the Cadal Mountains. The path itself is fairly well maintained for the first couple of miles, for the garrison in Dyna does send a regular patrol up into the hills, but after that it grows much more difficult, and what the path is like closer to the old fort is unknown, as no one has traveled up that far in ages.

If the group is certain that it is going up into the foothills, let me know and we will move on to a Skill Challenge. If you aren't ready to go yet, continue with this RP thread, and when everyone's ready just post that you're finished with this thread.

OOC: Oi, lemme see if I can squeeze something into here after getting caught up...

Rubicon had waited with Liar, looking forward to a chat with the shorter man, but was dissapointed when he said it would have to wait. He patiently waited outside by the minotaur, deciding to keep a fellow rare creature company. He didn't have much preparation left on his part, having all he felt he needed with him. "Hmmmm... you know Cubert, judging by how our short friend turned a shade of red... I recall fleshy creatures did that when embarrased at times... or a show of wanting to..." Cubert interrupts with a bubbling noise. "Oh, heavens NO! I would hope he wouldn't want to do THAT."
