Strange Lands, a tale of Shadows and Heroes

Post  Drago765 on Sun May 04, 2014 2:40 pm

Our tale begins in a town named Kerosta. A small village stationed between the nations of Verulk and Korthek, not too far from Kanorek, not that the locals would know that, or at least tell you that if they did, but that's not all that surprising. It is truly small, one of those villages where almost everybody knows each-other and there's barely a tavern. Though it has found a fair number of new faces as of late, and the presence of Derakan is growing ever closer... Luckily, it hasn't quite reached here yet, as far as you can tell.

In this place, we find ourselves a couple of the new faces, an odd sort of pair, not very often you see a Kobold and a cross-breed between an Eladrin and Drow, very odd indeed... They find themselves in this town in search of hints towards what happened to the Kobold's tribe, and to maybe figure out a few things about the powers the strange cross-breed had come across in the process.

We also find a small Pixie has come across this town, riding a mechanical Corgi and accompanied by what looks to be an Eladrin, although with a few slightly different facial features. This pair has found themselves here after a rather mysterious incident involving the Pixie's friends and lots of blood, which has left them aimlessly wandering without any real direction. I'd say it's quite fortunate they've found themselves here rather than lost.

Just wandering into town is a particularly mysterious figure, she looks almost like a hunter, but she's definitely not a local face. She's very pale, and her hair is a very dark black, though the most noticeable feature is her eyes. They look like purple orbs just resting in her eye-sockets. This, combined with her hunting gear and giant Boomerang, looks rather strange... Though most chalk it up to her being from "Those weird fae lands.". Those that know of the coming darkness, however, keep a wary watch on her...

And finally, we have a nondescript Tiefling male with light red skin and deep red hair, who currently finds himself being chased by a very angry mob.

Shiera starts walking in the direction she thinks the tavern is, looking around as she walks.

"Okay, look reeeaaally closely," urged the kobold as he stretched as much as he could over a market stall to show the seller a ripped red rag with some coal markings on it. It doesn't look like much, but these were the markings of Zyn's tribe. "Are you reeeeaaally sure you haven't seen any markings like this go by in the last month?"

Nistriele, riding her giant spider mount, notes that they are now properly "in the town" and decides she should probably stop riding so she can be somewhat less intimidating by at least being at eye level with anyone she chooses to speak to. She swings her left leg over the spider's body and slides off down the right side. She tosses back her long golden hair to keep it out of her way, as it had gotten a bit displaced as she slid, and pats her mount on the side. As the kobold is occupying the attention of the closest other person, she goes over and pets her other less large but still giant spider. As she moves around, a tiny silver thing that currently looks somewhat like a bearded dragon (the lizard, not an actual dragon) climbs around her body with no apparent goal. Anyone who looks closely (though I can't imagine they are what with the other distractions presented here) might note that her shadow's head seems to be moving around, as if she were looking around at the people in sight.

"Be good girl's ok?" she says, presumably to the spiders, as she adjusts the holster hanging from her belt that holds her strange two headed axe that looks more like a larger than regular hatchet than it does a battleaxe. Then she looks around to see if there is anything or anyone interesting.

Twinkle Toes rides Roomba over to the Eladrow with the spiders, then flies up to eye level with her, about a foot from her face. Hazelnut is not far behind her, though is keeping a distance more relative to his size. "Hi!"

Nistriele's first reaction to something flying up in her face it to swat it away, but she stops, hand half-way to the pixie when she realizes that it spoke. "Oh. Hello." she says, a little embarrassed to have almost potentially murdered someone on accident just for the crime of surprising her. "I didn't expect to see any pixies this far south. What brings you here....." Nistriele says and trails off after noticing Roomba and Hazelnut and blurts out before she can think of how rude it might be, "And what are those?"

TT turns to look at what the spider-lady is indicating. "Oh, that's Roomba, my mechanical corgi steed, and Hazelnut, my bodyguard and good friend." As they are introduced, Roomba barks happily and Hazelnut waves his hand hello. "And I'm Twinkle Toes!"

Nistriele starts to say, "That didn't really answer-" but is cut off by bursting into laughter after processing what the pixie said her name was.

Meanwhile the silver thing that previously was in the shape of a bearded dragon crawls up onto Nistriele's shoulder, looks at Twinkle Toes, and changes its shape to look roughly like her. Though it's still entirely silver, like someone made a statue of TT out of silver and then animated it.

Draxxin runs, thinking, Who doesn't like a nice game of three-card monty? Just my luck, I end up beating the priest. Draxxin looks at his surroundings as he runs.

"I told ya' before! I ain't never seen that symbol in all me life! Now are ye' gonna buy sometin' or not?" The shopkeep replies to Zyn.

Shiera, while walking towards the tavern notices the aforementioned group and a male Tiefling running from an angry mob hot on his heels. The group also notices this.

Draxxin, looking around, notices a group who look like they've seen both travel and possibly combat, although he's not quite sure with that last one, but they look shady enough with those spiders. Might not work, but any chance to get away from that crooked priest of Moradin.

"Uh.... hold that thought." Nistriele says to the pixie as she notices the mob and moves to mount her riding spider.

Shiera rolls her eyes and throws her boomerang between the crowd and the Tiefling. Before walking over and shouting "And what would be the meaning of this?!" To both parties.

"What?" TT turns to look at the mob, then mounts Roomba and gets them as far out of the way of it as she can manage. After all, not like there's much a pixie can do against an angry mob.

Draxxin stops in front of the group and says hurriedly, "I can-!" But stops at Shiera's exclamation. "I beat their crook of a priest at Three-Card Monty and now I'm a heretic. Well, wouldn't be the first time."

"This ere crook cheated our priest in a game of Three-Card Monty! He's a thief!" A voice from the crowd shouts, the rest roaring in agreement and chanting "Thief!" over and over.

TT rides Roomba over to the hopefully less-violent mob. "What's Three-Card Monty?"

Nistriele just stares blankly at him (and unbeknownst to her, her familiar transforms itself into an Ace of Bishop) and after a pause, ignoring the pixie's question, letting the tielfing answer if he chooses to, says, "Have you considered that giving back the money would be less costly than being assaulted by a mob?"

"Oh, I was hoping for something different then just your average cheat. Go ahead." Shiera says, walking in the direction of the tavern again.

"Oh... I see. Well good luck with that." Nistriele says and looks over to Zyn and says, "Hey, Zyn, I'm gonna go to the tavern and maybe have a chat to that girl." and without waiting for a reaction she walks off in the direction of the tavern.
