Unusual Activity: ????????

Post  Ragdoll_Knight on Tue Jun 17, 2014 12:58 pm

As his vision clears, Meladranim is sitting on his bottom in a chamber of some kind, his back to a similar pyramid.

Looking around, the tower is made from some unidentifiable metal, same as the pyramid.  There are a few balconies that provide quite a view. You are on the top of a tower, built on a lone mountain in the middle of a desert. To the east, you see a small town on the outside fringe of the desert, and to the west and north an ocean.

There are about 3 miles (or 4.828km) of desert between you and it, though there are few landmarks visible.  Beyond the town is a forest.

The town has two roads leading away,  one of simple dirt, the other (from what you can tell from here) has some sort of track, as if for some oversized mine cart.

There is an open door in the chamber, leading to some stairs down.

"Uhm...this ain't Esrogoth...or Dohral...or Tivook, or any of the smaller Provinces...shit.", grabbing his bow in his left hand, and the halberd in his right, he turns aroung, thinking what to do, his helmet lay with those cats in the citadel, the cloak was half torn anyway and of no use at the moment, so he would best store it in his backpack.*

"Well...the other way I have the skinchangers, probably hunters, and the citadel that is a little bit cranky looking for a demon to skin his hide off, probably, but best not take any chances...and this....oh fuck it, maybe I can find some work here as a mercenary."
*With that he touched the pyramid again with his tail, and then starts walking down the steps, his wings seen on his back and his face, head, everything openly and proud*

On the next floor, you are greeted with nothing, save for wall and l a small tunnel where the wall meets the floor. It is just big enough for you to crawl through.

*Looking about, and at the tunnel, Meldranim stops for a moment, rubbing his chin, then simply shrugging he walks back up again, leaning over the edge of the balcony to look at the ground, trying to make out what is to be seen down there, before shrugging and just jumping off that edge, spreading his wings and soaring down slowly, aiming for somewhere away from the tower, towards the city* "You never know"

As you fly off, you notice the tower is pretty much abandoned.
After half an hour, you land in the desert with still a mile (1.60 km) of desert before the town. Wings sore, and unable to fly any longer today, he begins walking the remaining distance through the desert to town.

It doesn't take long to notice something odd sticking out of the sand.

*He walkd a bow around it, keeping quite some distance between himself and the thing that sticks out of the sand, drowning a haste potion to start running a bit faster, to keep distance and get forward faster*

With your enhanced speed, it doesn't take long before you hit the edge of the desert, the town is within sight now. With no walls, and no guards stations, it doesn't take much work to infiltrate without anyone spotting you. Close to the desert, and close to the middle of town, you find a tavern labeled "The Spotted Frog"

*Grinning about his own slyness he taked out his cloack from his backpack and forms a sort of turban to wear on his hat as he enters, his tail hidden under the armor now, in the right leg of the chain legs, his horns below the cloak, he simply opens the door to the "Spotted Frog" and steps through, halberd shouldered and bow strapped over his shoulder, his thin blanket thrown around his shoulders before he walks in*

Entering the tavern, you find it empty save for a few groups of people enjoying their drink. The busty barmaid (because aren't they all) flashes you a quick grin despite your odd attire. It's not quite late enough for drunken antics, but the sun is down, so who knows.

*The Tiefling smiles back although does not show his teeth and nods as he turns towards a table and takes a seat placing it in a corner of the room where he sits down, looking about, taking in the details of his surroundings, how the people look, how they talk, what they do, how the room is decorated and so on.*

The inn is a rather modest 30.48 meters by 15.24 (100 feet by 50 feet) and sparsely decorated. Behind the bar is the usual assortment of kegs, as well as an oven and cooking pit. The wall to your left is decorated with a few hunting and war trophies, mostly animals and some monsters you don't recognize that would be from the local cross of habitats. (From the desert to the west to the forest to the east)


Far to your right, the woman stands behind the bar, cooking food you assume is for the small group of people gathered here tonight.

Said men, and a few women, gather and settle in at the table on the opposite wall,  speaking in hushed voices.

(Listen DC 5 Roll 5+8=13)

From across the otherwise empty tavern, it's not hard to make out bits of the conversation over the sound of the bar maid cooking meat.


"... I don't like the idea of them being so close. It's one thing to want to drive the blood mages and their demons from our lands, it's another to put innocents in danger." Says one man.

"This one claims to be from the old blood. Decended from the last King. Do you know what that could mean? " says another, his tone displaying his wonder and joy clearly.

"What difference does it make? Soon as the mages find them in the forests this rebellion will be put down before it even starts, just like all the others over the last 60 years."One of the women says.
"I'm telling you both, this one is different! The magic of our kings is alive in this one, if the rumors are true." The second man says again.

"Even so, what business do they have being so close to our town and putting us in danger?" The first man responds.

The five people at the other table look up, shocked as if they had just noticed you. One man cuts a look at the woman and shakes his head once, quickly, and looks back at you.

"I'm sorry stranger but we're only getting our food and leaving. Sorry we disturbed the peace of your night."
He looks back to the bar woman, and says "we'll take our meal to go please," and looks back to you.
"Do you plan to stay the night in our town? We don't get much in the way of visitors, in this far away corner of the Empire."

"Aw and I thought someone was up for a good time this night, ah a peaceful night, I had plenty of them, sometime I just like a bit of...excitement." *He flashes them a short thin lipped smile before pondering for a moment*

"You know, I was thinking of staying late, and maybe one or two days before I go on to the next town, trying to find some work as a guard or so..."
,with that he nudges the halberd slightly and visibly.
"But I do not think I will stay for long, those people with the carved skin creep me out, I don't like them prowling about if you get my drift, to take a common phrase from where I am, they give me the screaming willies"

The man who hadn't spoken yet looks your way, and gestures for the others to go collect the food, which is being plated up on two polished metal trays big enough for two plates each.

"I'll stay with you stranger, my friends have jobs to do at dawn and I do not." He moves to sit at your table, and the other woman from the group brings him his meal. The says goodbye to him, and touches his shoulder as she leaves with the others.

"Tell me friend," He gestures towards your outfit, "you look like you just came through the desert. Find anything interesting in your journey?"
He looks to you, his eyes serious and leans back in his chair, crossing his and not touching the food yet.

*He just leans backward a bit, looking at the trophies then looks back at the man, flashing him a small smile and a wink* "Yes, a whole new country I have never seen before, and something sticking in the sand I preferred not to take a closer look at it, that and that big tower I passed as quickly as I could because THERE I saw that man with the carved symbols, and as said, I don't like the look of that, that and the tracks of some sort of giant wagon"

The man analyzes your words, then replies back "First time on the Island then?" He nods to himself, as if confirming something.

He looks confused at your talk of giant wagons, then he says "You live dangerously sir, to speak so loudly of spying on the mage's activities. I hope you don't mind me asking you to keep this town out of it."

"Yep, and I know what yer thinking, and yes it most likely is right. I ain't from the island, I probably am from an entirely different continent aswell, got here by accident, rather vague, bit oh drink, bit oh wench, bit o' whacked over wit' a club. Oh, dangerously, yeah, always have, people aren't fond of me most of the time, I just seem to draw trouble onto my like shit lures flies. But can shut my cake mouth while I'm here, no skin off my arse. Now tell me one thing, is there anything around here where I can find a job as a guardsman, or fighter, or armed escort or such, I got 18 seasons of training when it comes to fighting."
*He smiles again as he waves over to the barmaid*
"Eh, some ale and some water please, if ye could swing yer pretty shaped pears an' apples over here"

After a minute or two, the barmaid brings over the requested drinks and sets them in front of you before heading back to the bar to continue to clean her work station.

The man seems lost in thought, evaluating you... he finally speaks, pushing his plate across the table towards you.
"If yer looking for action, you can take the railway south around the forest to Southport, then from there to Thornhill or cross the sea... Thornhill is across the forest to the east of here, but you can save a day if you go through Southport instead. Being a harbor town, I bet it's be easy to find work there"

*Whispering, Meldranim just mutters with a toothed grin before he grabs some of the meat off the plate to stuff it into his mouth*

"And here I sat hoping to get to open the bellies of some demonspawn and splatter their insides across a few walls."

The man recovers from the shock of your words quickly this time, leaning towards you to whisper quietly, eyes hard.

"You've made it pretty clear that your not from around here, but your in the Empire of Blood now. We may be far from direct influence, here on our island in the outer reaches, but they have eyes and ears everywhere. You need to be more careful with your words or death will find you with your pants down."

He leans back in his chair once more, seeming to be thinking about his next move.

"Tell you what, I'm heading in the morning through the forest. Why don't you accompany me, and we'll see if I can find suitable work for you."

*Meldranim leans towards him aswell, his eyes hardening aswell, his voice just a silent hissing whisper*
"I fear death less than imprisonment, less than control, and when I die I will take anyone close enough with me that is for sure, but I will remain quiet, for your plan's sake, oh and, if they have eyes and ears everywhere, check the barmaid more closely."

*Then he grabs the cup of water and drowns it before setting it down and burping*

"I am looking forward to find some work, I might take the path over the railway lateron, but I think not before in a week, I need a rest from all the walking, and before I forget it, whos tower is that in the desert area anyway?"

"The tower is a relic of a dead age. The kings of old had them constructed on each continent and island. It's been more than 60 years since we've had a king, and it's doubtful there ever will be one again."

"The rails will be moving again in the morning. If you need a place to stay, I recommend the inn on the other side of town. The food there is terrible, but the beds are decent. It's across from the rail station and also near the exit east to the forest."

He stands to leave.

"Well I think I am going to see you tomorrow then, oh I am sure not to get into more trouble than I already am anyway"

Outside the tavern, the man responds before leaving you

"Wouldn't know. The desert is too dangerous to brave alone, and no one remembers enough about them to show interest."

He turns, heading down the road towards a few homes that you passed on your way into town. The same road continues the other direction, east into the forest.

"If you plan on coming with me in the morning, don't be afraid to sleep in. Unlike others, I don't much care for waking at dawn."
