    >"A mysterious stranger once sold me a magical set of armor. His price was my own flesh and blood. I graciously accepted, for I would sacrifice anything for king and country."

    >"I still remember my own horrid screams as I donned the armor, blood pooling at my feet as my flesh was consumed, and my soul bound."

    You are Sir Hadrian Blackhand, all that remains of a shattered kingdom and her people. Your soul bound to a living suit of armor, and entombed in the fallen capital of your kingdom. Recently however, you have regained your freedom, and set out for find the cause of the apparent cataclysm that rocked the world while you were imprisoned.

    You traveled east, only to find a blasted landscape seared by a massive fire elemental, and the sick cult that worshiped him. Bringing the very fury of winter itself to the island, you dealt with this false God and his prophet, saving what was left of a family and fleeing the burning hell that soon crashed down to the earth.

    Living armor (Your body)
    You can heal minor damage such as gashes and holes punched through
    >Arcane hearing
    You can hear significantly better than your average mortal, but even that has its limits for the moment
    >Arcane sight
    You can see things that are normally left unseen. (Magic, spirits, ect.) Has its limits.
    You can consume things to gain power. The only thing you have tried it on was a normal steel sword.
    You gave birth to a horse fueled by the souls of the damned. You might be able to do similar things.
    Your Glaive is now covered in the same substance as the armor, increasing its power tenfold (Can cut through rock, its as unbreakable as your armor. The blade glows a ghostly white)
    >Flames of manipulation
    Your newest power. Surrounds your body in flames that you can control completely, even the temperature. You mainly use them for defense at the moment, but you can do anything with them. When inactive, it appears there is a cloud of shadow around us. Mercy also gets this to a lesser extent, it surrounds his legs protecting them. (But a flaming hoof the the face will probably hurt a fuck of a lot more than a normal one.)

    Your Cloak (Crimson)
    >Has hammer space storage. (Enough for half a shark)

    Mercy(Your Horse)
    A horse you gave birth to, who has the soul of a young boy we killed a short while after the entombment. Fueled by the souls of the damned who inhabited the ruined city.
    >Can use the flames to a lesser extent
    Uses them to walk on water, and shield his legs from harm.
    >No other upgrades

    Glaive (Your weapon, no name currently)
    >Converted into the same material as your body.
    >Blade has a ghostly white glow and can cut through stone
    >Same regenerative properties as your armor.
    >Can imbue it with the fire that surrounds you

    Vengeance (Your Metal snake)
    >Born from the tortured soul of a creature you found in the tower, it begged you for a chance at revenge, to strike down the ones responsible for its plight.
    >Can extend very long
    >Very quick (Spring at the old mage quicker than you could even catch)

    Turning away from the fallen elemental, you point your attention towards the little head now peaking out from in your cloak, staring at the snake with the flicking tongue

    >How are you going to explain this to the girl?
    >> Anonymous 01/08/12(Sun)18:54 No.17467311
    First things first, land somewhere safe and check on the girl. Then we need to get her dropped off in civilization somewhere because I don't think having a young girl traveling with us will be a very good idea.

    Where we ride we bring nothing but punishment and death. We saved her from the cult, I hate to see her get wrapped up in our vengeance and die in a crusade that is not hers to carry out.

    There's going to be complications no matter what we do at this point.

    She may not have any family left alive, but we've given her bloodline a chance at retribution through Vengeance. We are not capable of bringing much that is pure or good into this world, only eradicating that which is evil, but we could give her this gift of rebirth at least.

    What? No. Absolutely not. We gave that choice to the elder sibling (was it male or female, I forget if we found that out), because she was already dead. We are not bringing a child, a LIVING child who survived this ordeal into our crusade.

    We wanted to save her from darkness and death and by serving us, we will only bring her more of that. Her sibling had nothing left but vengeance, this girl has so many more opportunities and possibilities open to her yet, and we will not take that away from her.

    She will not travel with us.

    Holding a plated hand out in front of the snake, it obeys and coils around your arm, head in your palm. Speaking directly to the snake, you tell her that she will speak for you, for you do not take pleasure in frightening a child.

    You beckon the girl out, and with even more reluctance she climbs out of your flowing cloak, seeming to stumble on something inside. You offer her vengeance who hissed silently, and she took the snake up gently, barely able to hold its weight, she fell backwards with another squeak when its form sucked into something much smaller, and coiled itself around her arm.

    Looking gazing down at the snake, tears welled in her eyes as they had a reunion you choose to stay out of, for you knew what conversation was passing between the two just by the body language alone, made ever clearer when she fell to her knees embracing her previously lost sibling.

    Her voice was still shaking when she looks up to you "T...thank you....thank you so much..." You are this girls savior, you are sure if you asked it at this point, she would do anything with little objection.

    Holding out your hand to Vengeance once more, she coils back up your arm. Giving her a command, she jerks her head back in alarm.


    You throw the snake into the ocean with a single command.


    The girl seems rather alarmed you just tossed her sibling into a giant body of water, but you place a hand on her head soothingly, and reach into your cloak looking for something you just remembered you had.

    Ah, there it was. You were rewarded with a silver goblet, one of your plunder from the orc ship, and hold it out letting the rain fill it up. You calmly present it to the girl, and she accepts, gingerly taking it from your hands.

    You take a seat on a rock, and look back to her sipping on the water.


    Your voice booms out, causing her to almost drop the cup. "I...its....We were never...never given names. He...the speaker had just called us by numbers."

    You are waiting for Vengeance to return.

    Our armor may be as black as the abyss, and what is left of our soul frosted over with a rage that would make a god cringe in fear.

    But we are not heartless. We are an asshole yes, that comes with being filled with HATE. But we are still human at heart. Capable of great things, capable of horrible things. We may never be called a "hero" in good light.

    But one thing is certain.

    We are not the villain.

    If this world needs a hero, we shall be the hero it needs, if not the hero it wants.

    In a way, although we didn't create her like Mercy and Vengeance, we gave her a second chance at life.

    I agree with offering her a chance to choose herself, but "Hope" is very fitting if she can't decide. It's not right for a person to live without a proper name. She's just had everything taken from her, I want to give her something that she can own wholly and without restriction.

    Staring at the small form before you, noticing the wispy white cloud flowing away from her face with every breath.


    Your question doesn't startle the girl as it did last time, instead she looks expectantly at you, almost anxiously. You gaze thoughtfully for a moment. Your actions had given this girl a chance at a new life, something to hope for as opposed to the horrid life she lived before. The answer was clear.


    She thinks on it for a moment, repeating the name over under her breath. Frowning, she looks back to you. "I will keep the old name I was given. Even if it was a number, I will not forget what I came through to get where I am now. My name shall be Drei."

    The girls fire surprises you, still giving a you a fierce look, you can't help by chuckle. As close to chuckling as you can anyways, it escapes your shell like grinding sheets of metal causing the girl to look confused.

    >"VERY WELL."

    Hearing a wet dragging noise, you feel that Vengeance is approaching, burdened with something.

    It seems to be rather large. Dropping his burden he quickly slithers up your leg staring you in the face.


    You now have food and water for the girl.

    And so your journey across the blasted landscape began leaving behind that wretched place, you continue heading along the coast, in hopes of catching the sight of a harbor town or some sign of civilization.

    Drei had taken up residence in your cloak, for she was unable to stand the bucking of Mercy and the blinding speed at which you rode. On the night of he rescue, after apologizing to Vengeance, you had both agreed to was to dangerous to have the girl travel with you, and resolved to find her a more permanent residence than your cloak.

    Sadly neither of them had rarely stepped foot outside the tower, and could provide no directions towards civilization.

    You search seemed fruitless until one day, the landscape changed from barren to yellow grass and overcast clouds. Riding further along the coast, you come across a road, leading from a dock that seemed very recently used away from the shore further inland.

    Also, does it seem that we have a fuckmassive soft spot for children? We gave Mercy what he/she asked for and it became our steed, Vengeance cried our for her vengeance and the chance to protect her sister. And we are protecting this girl until we can find her a home.

You are venturing into a civilized place now for all you know, and I doubt people would take the minor of the evil knight into their homes.

    1. Shift into a more standard knight. That is, make it less fricking obvious that we're not actually magic. This applies to Mercy and Vengeance as well (maybe Vengeance should just lay low for a while)

    Step 2: Acquire a quill and parchment. We should write out a letter explaining the girl's situation, that also explains we have lost our tongue; we cannot speak.

    Step 3: Let the girl speak for us until we get the above items, and bring her into town on our shoulder, NOT in our cape. Nobody will think we're evil if we're carrying a small child on our back.

    Finally, hopefully you wont have to kill everyone this time. However, first you have to do something about your appearance, as riding into town on a felsteed wreathed in fire would not help your chances at finding information at and Drei a place to stay.

    You command Mercy to turn his flames off and do the same to yourself. Looking questionably to Drei, who will remain saddled on the horse with you for the rest of the ride.

    "You are still very spiky, and a normal knight doesn't have glowing red eyes." Focusing, you retract the spikes in, leaving metal bolts in their place. As for the eyes, well you can't really do anything about that, so you just pull part of your cloak over your head as a hood. It seems to work, as Drei nods approvingly.

    Taking a moment to rummage around in your cloak, you haul out an assortment of rings and necklaces, tossing all but the plainest necklace back in. It is a simple task converting the gold to an obsidian, and you place it around the girls neck.


    With those matter taken care of, you mount up and place her in front of you. Taking care to trot at a leisurely place, it is getting dark when you see the lights of a settlement on the horizon.

    As you approach the gate, you are pleased to see two human guards taking watch, and they wave you down as you approach.

    You dwarf the humans, the tallest of the two only reaches up to your chest. Perhaps the mortals of todays age are very short? You were an average height before your binding standing a head shorter than the king, but you grew the head when you were bound. No matter.

    The guards, still quite intimidated of the black armored giant, riding on a horse equally as black but speak to you all the same.

    This mission with the girl is a distraction, after this we have another mission: Find out what the fuck happened to the world since the last time we saw it (this will require some talking, I admit), and only THEN we will decide what to do with our live

    >We're a knight, idiot. We work in the service of king and country--the definition of law bound.

    A king and a country we murdered, remember?

    Placing a hand on Drei's shoulder, you speak through the necklace to her.


    With a bit of shy muttering, and a helpful poke, she finally speaks up. "Errr...You will have to forgive my...my...." Looking up at you, she tries to find words for what you actually are to her. "....I'm his Paige, he lost his voice due to an old wound." The older of the two guards looks grimly up at the girl, knitting his brow together. "More of you blasted Cinderfolk? Goddammit I thought we made it clear we didn't want your kind around any more!" He emphasis the last words stomping his foot.

    The younger of the two steps out in front of the man before he can continue his rant. "My apology's, my friend here is a veteran from the war, and has never quite warmed up to your kind." Making a grandiose gesture he continues "I can assure you all are welcome in King Kaden's halls." Pausing, he looks up to the girl "But sadly the city is closed for the next few days. The festival of lights is quite famous in this region you know."

    Looking back up to you, you urge her onwards, placing something in her hand. "We are only travelers passing through, and we only wish to find an inn to stay the night, we will be leaving soon after." She holds out what was placed in her hand, a gold ring and some of the silver coins you found. Both mens eyes went wide with delight and looked up to the two travelers.

    "Well, important guests are always welcome." Going over to the gate, he kicked it a few times, and with a shout the gate creaked open. "May I be the first to welcome you to the city of Grandal."

    Riding through the gate, you ponder over the thought of the war. Racism was still strong even in these times it seemed.

    What is a knight without a king?
    >> Anonymous 01/08/12(Sun)21:57 No.17469545
    We're not an actual knight you jackass, and we're definitely one in the moral sense either. We've committed genocide because we thought the people were depraved.
    Also, you're saying mute people can't figure out anything, pretty much. I've got a deaf/mute cousin who's currently taking an MBA, so yeah, fuck off you prat, or at least get some common sense.

    Read. The. Threads.

    The king and country that we were originally pledged to and sacrificed ourselves to become the living armor we are today. The blasted and damned country that we came across in the last thread was a different place entirely.


    For the record, it's spelled "Page".

    Same plan as before, find an Inn, send Drei on her way.

    No sense dicking about.

    Bring the girl to the King.

    Who better to protect the girl?

    And swearing ourselves to his service (keeping in mind we shall still uphold our principles) is payment above and beyond what the King could hope in raising the child.

    Best of all, maybe the King raising a Cinderfolk child may hope to undo some of the racism in the city.

    we became a knight to do what is Right what is Just and to Protect the Innocent, not to be some kings goon or a wandering demon. were centurys old, I think were mature enough to deal with the fact that we are fricking scary

    Thanks again. As for the fighting, it makes me think the quest is successful? One half wants to be batman, while the other wants to be a brutal force of nature, while others want to be something in the middle.

    No....the place you were entombed in WAS your kingdom. You were part of the kings royal guard before you went to seek out something that could put a stop to the mage.
