    The last thread from last night:

    You've been far from home, but have returned. The town has managed to get by without you, the choices you made before you left allowing it to thrive despite losing protection from the neighboring city.

    The only casualty it seems of your choices has been the Were-Wolf who tried to kill you, but ended up saving your life over a year ago on your first "Adventure".

    You kept her condition a secret to protect her, and decided to let her exist with her "controlled" condition.The biggest and most fearsome looking Orc of those you hired is standing there wearing your friends Were-wolf form's flesh on his back as a prize.

    How will you deal with the situation?

    ( If we can keep things little more on topic, so we don't end up with 3 threads like we have the past few nights due to Auto-Sage. Not sure how much it will help, but haha.)

    Nobody to blame for ourselves. At which point did we let the orc guards know "hey there is a wolf-girl out there, throw her some meat every now and then would you"? At no point.

    Getting angry at the man will achieve nothing but pettiness and it could undo much of the goodwill that has been garnered here.

    Blame ourselves or God.

    >> Firstquest 10/22/09(Thu)21:46 No.6390990
    You cannot be positive, but the pelt looks dead on her. You stand there thinking, knowing the Orc likely didn't do it out of spite, an unlucky turn of events to say the least.

    Part of you still wishes to confront him while another thinks it is best if no one knew you had a were-wolf cohort.

    Re-birth from death in a whole body, as you once were is unheard of. The only thing you know about such arts involve Necromancers and dark magic.

    You take a deep breath and Tell your little party of Dwarfs that you will join them at a table after you've spoken to the Town Guard leader.

    They move off without you, and you walk up to the Trader and his large warrior Companion, they stop talking and look at you, giving you a warm greeting.

    "S'glad to see ya Man! You've done good, I saw some of that haul ya brought back eh! Gonna make this little town into somethin fancy? Gonna kick us greenies out after right?" The trader laughs and slaps you on the arm, you don't look like you found it too funny with the death of your friend in your mind, still you must be sure.

    "Thats a nice new pelt you have there, how did you get it friend? Such a big beast hanging around these parts?"

    He smirks at you and gestures for you to sit on the stool next to him. His massive sharp-toothed grin shows how much he loves to tell this story, and how glad it is you asked.

    You ask to know where the grave is, and he tells you, but asks why. Your hot tempered nature has cooled slightly, as you are bummed, but still understand that no one really was at fault. You tell him that you are just suspect it might of been someone you failed to protect and their death needs an apology from you.

    He looks a little somber, but nods as if he understands what that feels like.

    You ask him about what weapon he might want, and his eyes grow wide. He says he will get back to you on that, because he's still thinking about it.

    You grab an ale from the bar-tender and tell your compatriots that you will be back. Thoughts swirl in your mind about what it might mean to take on the responsibility for the whole town's well being. It takes only a half hour to walk out to the unmarked grave, take out the necklace and bury it a foot or so down.

    You whisper your apologies into the wind and sit there for a few minutes in contemplation, before heading back. You didn't know her very well, but you know her life was hard, she once saved your life, and she did not deserve to die like that.

    It is uneventful, but at least lets you feel some sort of closure.

    The shrine would take about a days walk, and horse ride would still be hours. If you wish to go on see them right now, it should likely be after a night of rest, and letting your crew know what you want them doing and where you are going.

    So you spend the night with Yezta ( The princess), and realize that you might want to change this place into -just- your workshop, and actually build a home here with her, even if she does not mind sleeping in a Blacksmith shop you're unsure if she really thinks it sings of her royal upbringing.

    The horse you take from town is fast, healthy and strong. The weather is fair, and the roads are clear. It is actually a good trip through these once dark woods compared to your bloody memories of them.

    The shrine has changed so much, it seems the Elves take their work very serious. The tower is still dark, heavy stones covered in moss and disrepair, but all around the courtyard are small buildings and artwork of clean white stones.

    You see Eosri, the elven priestess who first asked to have this place running daintily up to you in her flowing white and gold gowns.

    "You have returned! Oh how nice to see you! By the gods in the sky it looks like you've been through much!"

    She would be happy to teach you what she knows, but she thinks the most learning could be done on the Elven Isles where he people reside.

    You explain your encounter with the Vampire as you walk around the courtyard with her, and eventually end up inside the tower. The silver sword stuck into the ground half melted with the green shards of crystal scattered about, armed elven guards stand around the room, apparently to keep people from touching the blade.

    She lowers her voice to speak to you after you've explained your adventure.

    "No doubt you have met the Vampire leader, or one of his top men. Its been said that dark forces have decided to stop tearing at each other as they tear into the innocent. That they all at once act upon the good of this world so they may battle over it once we are vanquished. Vampires move among the humans, twisted assassins and Wizards move among my people... with slews of other beasts. No doubt that vampire showed to keep the aide of the Black Dragon mother, and harm the people of the mountains."

    "There are many ways to hold against such tactics and creatures. I do not wish to boast, but it would take a terrible creature to kill us all in our sleep with this shrine here, and the prayers of my sisters and I.

    "Vampires are a strange breed. Many follow a nameless dark god. A vague deity that...strangely enough seems to exist. We don't know much, but that their goal is to drain a world dry of more then just blood. To eat the world as if it is a living thing, to turn a realm into a hollow undead thing as themselves. They think if they manage to do this, their god will transport them to a new land to begin all over once more. Some vampires start out as themselves, but grow blood thirsty and dark losing their minds. Others go mad from their endless lives, and grow so bored the destruction seems viable just to see a new world and repeat the process. Silver and sunlight Kills them. Objects through their heart can but them into a state of "Slumber", but once it is removed if it is not silver it will awaken them, elder vampires are immune to this."

    Silver for the whole town guard would likely be too expensive and too risky, as you only have 5 dwarfs bound to serve you, these people could abandon the town if they wished, or trade the weapons for gold. Any number of things.

    Silver and Gold are expensive, Black-Steel is VERY expensive, and what your arm is made out of is priceless. Weapons being made from things like that can't be given out en mass.

    What you want to build in the town, what you want to do with it, who you want in charge of the town, what items you wish to build for yourself, your hunters, the people and how much you wish to train with the priestess?

    Also at any time you can say "Fuck sittin around." There are dark woods to explore, towns to visit if you wish, a neighboring city, or an Elven city to see and train as a paladin.

    If the main focus is your town and you plan to stay here till trouble comes to you however just say what you wish to do with your time like this.
    1.Build home
    2.Work in shop for public
    ( Spare time)3. Train with Priestess.

    Increase the size of the town's vault. Make it more secure. Underground if possible. All that.

    Same with storehouses for food. Meat, grain, etc. We need to have a whole lot of supply in case we're put under siege.

    And some sort of fallout shelter. A communal safehouse. Well built. Maybe an escape tunnel.

    You lay out your plans, and begin to fall into a routine, your main focus is to make sure the town is up and running. You run ideas past the Mayors son and let him stay in charge, but he never questions your ideas.

    You forge weapons for the town guard, and do special requests when they come along. The town gets plenty of people in looking to buy from you personally or have your keen eye just look over a blade they've found in some god forsaken dungeon.

    Boredom does set in after a while, you do love the tiny break and not feeling the taste of blood in your mouth or broken ribs, but you know that it might be hard to just be a "normal" man again. You train with the Princess and with The Elf whenever you can.

    Things turn out "Okay". You've learned a bit from your lover, and are a decent fighter, from all the combat experience you've gained from being in the thick of it and from training with her, you finally feel like you could take her in a straight fight, something that could not be said a year and a half ago.

    The town is well equipped and slowly growing, it is changing from a town to a city as farms begin to flood you with food.

    You've had a nice home constructed and you personally helped craft your vault, your winnings and most prized possessions are held down there. Given more time this town will become something special, perhaps something to rival its nearby neighbors after years have passed.

    A letter arrives to you by messenger with a noble seal from the neighboring city, asking for you to pay the Lord there a visit as trade meetings and land lines need to be drawn.

    The other city is basically a human settlement that grew and grew. It eventually began setting up smaller towns in untamed areas with the promise of no governing nobles or taxes. Once those towns become profitable enough they provide protection as long as laws and taxes are obeyed once more and their nation's colors are displayed.

    They wish to see the Mayors son technically, since they asked to see the leader, whom they assumed was you. It does feel suspicious, they likely just want to ream you for all you are worth until you back down and pay them like a good town should.

    You call together the hunters and tell them they will come with you. What orc would you like to bring and what elf the priestess? Only one of you will be allowed to actually attend the meeting it seems.

    You get a small group together, the priestess refuses to leave the shrine, so you are short an elf.

    The Trader Orc Rad'samaz, says he would just LOVE to come to the big city with you, and that he would wear his finest robe-things and make sure to rub it in human's faces that he is there on "Important diplomatic matters". Something tells you he'll be fun to have along.

    The princess and your guard set out with you as well. You tell the mayor he is once more in charge of things while you make the big big decisions, and that way if anything does happen to you, it won't be a failing blow to the town.

    It is important to remember that while this City is run by greasy greedy nobles, that does not mean they are totally bloodthirsty and would end you at the drop of a hat. Remember that they did come to your aid that night, and cost themselves one of their most famous paladins.

    You move into the hall, and are greeted by what looks to be a clerk behind a large desk covered in books, pens and papers.

    The hall extends past the desk and the building breaks off into lots of meeting rooms, courts and dining halls. The ceiling is high and the roof is painted with designs depicting humans holding up flags and such symbolizing conquest over savage lands.

    The Orc scoffs at them, as he looks up. Some of the corpses show Orcs as savages along with beasts of the forests.

    Looking down the hall shows many nobles in their stupid wigs and fancy robes. The younger ones not wearing wigs, but they looked so doctored up it makes you a little sick.

    The dark haired man catches your eye for some reason. He seems... familiar. His skin is a strange shade of pink, almost as if it was painted on. The way he carries himself, and the fact that he does not look to be over weight or out of practice as the others do. Perhaps he is the fat man's guard or son...

    The man stops and turns to look at you, as if he could feel you eying him.

    He grins as if the two of you are sharing some kind of secret joke. And you suddenly know exactly who he is.

    A Vampire who owes you a couple of teeth.

    Your mind races as you react in several different ways, you want to go over and expose him for what he is right away, but you have no idea what this is all about.

    You start to say something to your party, but then realize it might be best not to let him know who is with you and most important to you, as the thought of him tearing out the neck of Yetza makes you want to hurl.

    A casual conversation begins between the Princess and the very fat noble. She is a nice girl and it is clear she has met the tub of lard several times on missions. You find out he is the Lord you were sent here to see, and this is his newest protege as he gestures to the vampire Elder.

    As the conversation continues you mouth to the vampire "I will fucking END you." And he tries to stifle a laugh. He speaks quietly and it seems to the others as if you are just hitting it off nicely.

    "Oh yes that worked SO well for you last time didn't it? I'm glad to see you brought your bite sized snack woman this time. Why did you pick a dwarf by the way... was she the first woman to make you feel adequetly sized?"

    This continues on for several minutes as idle chat takes place, finally introductions are made, and the sleazy painted snake takes his time to bow to the Princess and give her a showy delicate kiss on the back of her hand, while grinning smugly at you.

    It seems they wish to take your party to one of the meeting rooms to talk over some very important matters. The Noble acts as if the Orc is not even there. Rad looks rather pissed about the fact as he holds out his hand to shake the fatty's fist and it is ignored.
