The Training Yard

As you go out into the sunlight, sounds of steel on steel and of magic fill your ears.
As you follow the sounds, you see men and women in mock battle, some sporting bruises, others busy at work with their training.
A few young boys sit, watching and mumbling about their wishes to be able to fight like that.
There are a few people barking out orders and a man and women sporting a few scars between them come forward to speak with you.

2007-01-20 [Silver Moon]: A man stands fighting a fake target

2007-01-20 [absent-minded]: *walks over to the man* "sorry to disturb you, but could you tell me who the head fighter of this place is?"

2007-01-20 [Silver Moon]: "That would be Grenivic or Roke."

2007-01-20 [absent-minded]: " are they here?"

2007-01-20 [Silver Moon]: "Roke I balieve is in the tower,I am not sure about the general. I could get you the third in command."

2007-01-20 [absent-minded]: "that would be great, thankyou" *bows slightly*

2007-01-20 [Silver Moon]: *Bows and goes to fetch the other*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "May I help you?" *A strong woman asks.*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: "yes, I undersnad you have experiance in fighting sorcerers and magical creatures? I was wondering if you could teach me how to fight them" *looking hopefully at the strong woman*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *Woman studies you carefully.* "Do you have confidence in others as well as yourself?"

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *looks her stright in the eyes, tightening my fists* "I know who to trust yes, and I am confident"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *Smiles* "Will you be willing to give up your hatred?"

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: "I... I don't know if I can" *sighs*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *Looks sympathetic* "I know it is hard but you must try or you will be unable to reach your true potential.I had to give my anger up I believe you can too."

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *closing my eyes, taking a deep breath and letting out*
"what will have to do?"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "Calm yourself and place yourself in a medetative state find every thing that makes you hate and realease it, but remember we will bring them to justice and remember the wrongs,but don't let the hatred take over."

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *looks terrified, looks down in order to hide it*
"alright..I'll do it"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "It will be all right." *sounds soothing.*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *looks up at the woman* " but how will I know?"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "Now what?"

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *changing my mind* " nevermind, it wasn't important, all I want is justice for my people and if this is what it takes I'll do it, where do I go now?"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "You can start to defend yourself with this training sword." *Gets one out and throws it to you,gets one for herself and gets in a crouch.*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *grabs the sword and gets into a defencive possition*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *Starts to drill you on defense and offence.* "In a bit and I won't tell you when I will stop calling the moves, and you will have to act on instinct and skill."

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *listens carefully and follows instructions, nods head*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *Stops calling out commands and starts goin g into intricate move in a type of dance.*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *follows her moves and blocks the attacks*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: *As the moves increase a few slip through and you can feel minor stings and know you will have a few bruises.*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *struggeling to keep up*
*flash of memories from when my father used to teach me swodfighting as a little girl, he is laughing and smiling, and so was I*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "Do wish to rest for a moment?"

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *whipes the tears away* " Yes, thankyou" *smiles, short bow* "thankyo for the lesson"

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: "When you are ready to continue let me know." *says kindly*

2007-01-21 [absent-minded]: *smiles* " thankyou I will, seems I've got a bit of thinking to do now,I'll come back later" * smiles and waves before leaving the training yard*

2007-01-21 [Silver Moon]: Nods and goes to train others

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: A man barks out orders as a young boy and girl spar.

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *appears from the shadows and walks on to the training yard*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Put your backs ionot it children!" The man shouts, not noticing her.

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *looks interessed and walks closer to observe* " I shouldn't disturb him, they look busy, best find someone else" *mumbeling to myself*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: The kids break apart as another man calls rest. He turns to you with sparkling blue eyes. "Need any thing lass?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "um, yes I was wondering if anyone here knew anything about werewolves and how to kill them"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Yes. I could speak with you on it. As a matter of fact we had an attack about four hours ago. Everyone thank the gods, is all right though. So what do you need to know?'

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *smiles and bows slightly* " thankyou. I just need to know where I can find them and how to kill them"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Depends on the type of werewolf, contrary to what many believe, there are several species of werewolves, they each have different weaknesses. What type is it?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *looks down* " I don't know, all they said was to bring two werechildren, they never said what kind"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Who?" Looks uneasy.

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *sighs* "they said if I gave them the werechildren I'd get what I've been looking for in return, I know I shouldn't trust them but what they are offering means alot to me"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: The man's frown depends. "Who offered this deal to you?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: " they were demons by the look of it" *looks down* " I just wanted to know"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "You would take a deal with a demon?!"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: " how could I turn down what they were offering!? I'll do whatever it takes to get the answers I seek, even if it means dealing with a demon" *determind looking the man straigh in the eye*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: His eyes turn icy. "Are you a fool? Demons bring about destruction and grief!"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *clenches fists* " what would you do if the one thing you lived for and desperately wanted to find was put there right infront of you?! I highly doubt you'd let it slip through your fingers!"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: The man looked down sadly. "but...I was...and I did. I was offered my family..."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *looks suprised loosening m fists* " I didn't know...I..I'm sorry" *looks down in shame* "I just want to badly..and it hurts" *notices my eyes are wet, dries them off quickly hoping the man didn't notice*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "What did you lose?" he whispered sadly.

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "everything" * still keeping my head down holding my mothers pendant tightly and biting my lip so I won't cry again* " they came at dawn and slaughterd everything in their path"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Than we have a lot in common..' He whispered.

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *hesitating* " what happened?...who did it?"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "The warlord." *Sets down looking at his feat* "Hem demanded us to surrender to his tyranny. when the villagers refused he ....slaughtered them. I...was hunting...when I returned..I found three month old four year old daughter...and my wife....and all the villagers, except some that were missing...I pray they arte safe."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *a shiver runs through me* " I'm sorry" *whispering*
"I swear I'll find him and kill him" *looking at my fathers sword*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: The man looks up at you sadly. "Yell me...what was your home city?'

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "I'm from the north from Sol" *tear falls* " theres nothing left of it now"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I am father was from Sol.."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "what was his name?" * voice shaking*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Kyat..."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *can't hold back the tears any longer* " I knew him"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: Looks at her startled. "you...knew him?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "he was a good friend of my father...I used to call him uncle..he was always smiling, making everyone around him happy even if they werent" *smiles sadly*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "You...were the girl that always watched him train the young combatants...weren't you?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "..Yes" *looks down* " I miss them"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: he looks down too. "I do too...I saw you a couple of times...when father trained me."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: " he talked about you alot, he was really proud of you" *smiles* " I had given up all hope of ever seeing any of my kind again, I thought I was alone"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I thought I was....he was proud of me?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "Yes..he used to say my son, how brave and strong he father could have been more proud of their son than I am of him, even if he is a rascal at times" *smiles and looks up to the sky*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: *Wistful smile spreads on his face* "he...never said it....It is good to know I din't let him down.."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *looks at the man suprised* " you could never let him down"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I am glad I am not the last..."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *smiles* " so am I..I never thought I'd see anyone of my own kind again...may I ask what brought you here?"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I was struck mad with grief.....I don't remeber. Next thing I do remeber is I was in the healers, being treated for wounds I had no memory of receiving. They said when they found me I was surrounded by the bodies of The warlord's men.."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: *sad sigh* " I see.." * mumbles* " it doesn't feel like he is dead" 

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Who?"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "the one who did all of this..the one who took everything and everyone away from us, I can't rest untill I know for a fact that he is dead..I just can't"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "Neither can I! I want him dead, so he can no longer harm others."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "then help me find him!"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "How do you want me to help? *Eyes glint with excitement as he gets to his feet*

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: " ever since I came here I've tried to find out where he might be. Some seem to know more than they are telling me, theres something in the air here, no one have yet wanted to give me a true answer as to where he might be, but somehow I'll get them to tell me" *looks down* " its not much of a plan I know, and I'm not a very strong shadow walker, but I have to try...some say theres a war comming, I think he is the one leading it, for all we know he might come to us" *looks at the man* " will you help me fight him if he does come here? your father said you were the strongest shadow walker and I believe him"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I will help. But,,there is one ,more powerful than I.."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "who?"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "his Saverad....he is a soulforger too."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: " maybe he'll help us?"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "if we could find him....he is a friend of mine. He is the Leader of the Shadow order"

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "we'll find him" *smiles*
*feeling my legs becoming heavy, its hard to stand up straight* " I haven't rested propperly in a while it seems" *looks curiously at the man* " he never called you by name, it was always my son..what is your name?"

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: "I am named after him Kyate. You can rest in the healers."

2007-03-20 [absent-minded]: "ah, thankyou" *smiles and bows slightly, walks away dissapering in the shadows*

2007-03-20 [Silver Moon]: *********************************************************

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *walks up, takes a swig form his flask, and becomes immediately intoxicated, weaving slightly* OY! Any of you crazy people want to challenge me to a practice fight? I won't even use any weapons! I'll fight you with only me fists!

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: A dwarf with a black beard and hair comes forward smiling

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *looks over at him with glazed over eyes, still weaving* So, there are other dwarves in this elfy place. So, you want to fight? *puts fists up, stumbling around*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Laughs* "Your not steady on your feet"

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: "Is ok, I alwaysh fight like thish. It'sh called a false senshe..of...luring your enemy into securi..tricking the guy. Now come on."

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: Ok *Starts to attack carefully*

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *pulls his arm back for a punch, but loses his balance, bends over backward. He leans forward again, and turns the motion into a headbutt*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Dances around him quickly*

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *loses his balance, and falls on his face*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Laughs and kicks him in the butt*

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *stands up again* "Oh, you think you're shoooo good, since you can kick a man in the arse. Try this shmart man. *starts spinning around in a circle, arms outstretched, but vomits after 3 revolutions*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Laughs harder* "You'll slay me by making me laugh!"

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *wipes his mouth with his hand* Thatsh the idea...I think. I can't remember. *lurches forward with surprising speed, aiming a fist at the dwarf's stomach*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Pulls back in shock* "Good one you almost got me."

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *still stumbling around* "Shee? Most people don't think a drunk can't fight, but I turned into a style all my own. Now, if you'll excuse me... *falls down on his back, passed out drunk*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *Laughs and sets down next to him*

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *wakes up after a few minutes, holding his head* "Oof, what happened." *looks at the dwar next to him* "I remember you. Sorry about what happened. What I said about my fighting style is true, but I was a little too drunk. I don't believe I caught your name?"

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *laughs louder and tried to catch his breath* "I have never seen anyone fight like that."

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *chuckles a bit* "Yeah, that's the usual response from peopel watching me fight drunk." *holds up his flask* "This is my own special recipe. Gets me instantly drunk. However, I too it too soon after a couple tankards of ale, and it pretty much smashed me up beyond wha I normally do. I can't remember if you gave me your name or not."

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: "It's Berkler, mind if I have a bit?"

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: "Tell you what, you get me a bed to sleep this headache off, and I'll let you have a drink. It isn't easy to make.

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: "let's get you to the healers than, they gots extra beds there."

2007-05-02 [Breenn]: *stands up unsteadily* "Which way?"

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *leads the way to the hall. and helps steady him*

2007-05-02 [Silver Moon]: *************************************************************
