2006-12-20 [The Red Baron]: "You're welcome," he gets up and heads off to his room, "G'night."
2006-12-20 [Cia_mar]: G' night
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion rolled his eyes "don't get me started on her. Yah I am flattered that she likes me but have you any idea how much trouble she has caused me. Remember the dwarfs’ caves you had to spend the winter in 5 years ago? Well I had to spend last years winter in though same caves."
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria gave a wide smile as she said" Of course I remember them. Such lovely people all I had to do was sing while they worked and tell them stories in the evening. They gave me everything I needed.” Elyria grin widened as she continued “Why did she give you some thing she was not supposed to?"
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion sat down and leaned on the bar and said, “Yes a blasted sword. Sure it was beautiful and I wouldn't mind haven' it but the damn thing all most cost me my head! Only after on of her scouts intervened did they let me go. Dwarfs are so hot headed about their weapons
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria almost fell on the floor luaghing.Then conmposing her self again she said "Aw you poor thing "
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion said mockingly “Owe shut up”the leaning more in to his hand he said “Why don’t you be a good sister and sing me our mother’s song like you used to after she died,"
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "Elyria smiled lightly and kissed Albion on the forehead “ Alright dear lord brother for all your troubles I will sing you our mothers song. “as she sat next to her brother Elyria began to sing in a light motherly voice
“Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more
Men where deceivers ever
One foot in sea, the other on shore
To one thing, constant never
Sigh not so, but let them go
And be you blithe and bonny
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hay nonny nonny"(the song is continued at sigh no more )
2006-12-20 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion hums along and the towards the end joins in "Into hay nonny nonny.I t has been a long time since I have heard that song"
2007-01-10 [Cia_mar]: *cia packs up her lute and finishes her meal...looks for the proprietor to ask for a room for the night*
2007-01-11 [Elisha Kelly]: *** The sun slowly rose until it's golden rays pierced the murky tavern windows, bathing all within in a soft golden glow, while outside the rattling of wagon wheels passing over rough cobblestones signaled the start of another long day. ***
2007-01-11 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery snorted awake, from his short nap inside the kitchen, and stretched his long skinny arms above his head, feeling a lot better for his rest. He gave a crooked grin to Daniel [Danboo] before tottering out to the bar in search of his cane, which he had misplaced earlier*
2007-01-11 [Danboo]: (this daniel or and else who daniel)
2007-01-14 [Kurda]: ~Kurda opens the door and steps inside, but upon realizing that there are still people asleep, she turns and catches the door before it swings shut and closes it quietly.~
2007-01-14 [The Red Baron]: Alissius wakes up, takes a shower, then dresses up and goes downstairs, hoping to find someone else awake.
2007-01-14 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen descended from the first floor and continued out of the tavern, oblivious to the occupants as she did so.*
2007-01-14 [The Red Baron]: "'Morning," Alissius greets her.
2007-01-15 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery snorts in laughter a Alissius, who he was sure was more than a little drunk, as he had spent the last hour sleeping under a table, and had used a half empty tankard of ale to wash himself "Listen lad" he called out "ye room be upstairs... UP THE STAIRS!" *black arrow tavern:upstairs* "mayhap ye oughta get yerself up em and give ye self a proper wash like... "
2007-01-15 [The Red Baron]: (Alissius isn't drunk; he doesn't drink) The Varastrian laughed, "It IS morning, I have descended from upstairs, and I take a bath on a daily basis."
2007-01-15 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery merely rolled his eyes, and wrinkled his nose, before contiuing his search for his stick*
2007-01-15 [Cia_mar]: *cia walks into the room, she slept little, being unused to a "proper" bed, but looked refressed enough to be pleasant. smiling she scaned the room for her new friend*
2007-01-15 [The Red Baron]: "Now," Alissius slouched across the counter, "Caffeine, kindly."
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *Marten enters the door, shutting it behind him. His mail shirt clinking lightly, he makes his way over to a table near the stairs. Stretching his legs from the weary ways of the road, his big brown boots stick out from under the other side of the table. With a yawn and a stretch, he half heartedly waves for the bartender and leans against the backrest of the chair.*
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *Martens eyes wander about the room, and he notices a flash of red, and blinks, noticing the girl sitting at the bar for the first time. Getting up slowly he tries not to be self concious as he walks toward her, and politely sits a stool down from her.* "Hello miss," he says in a youthful baritone, "my name is Marten."
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: The young girl bowed her head slightly and her faced blushed. "'ello good Sir." she smiled, "Oh, I am Helena" she giggled and sipped her water.
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: "It's a pleasure to meet you Helena." *after an awkward pause, Marten manages to ask* "Well, do you live aroud here Helena?" *smiling with innocent charm, Marten leans over the bar, feeling more relaxed as the conversation seems to move forward*
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: "Me, I mostly sell herbs and spices to the bar keep here as well as some of the other local shops. It won't buy be a mansion by the sea but, it gets me by."
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: "That sounds like a nice occuption." Marten says amiably. Looking across the bar he asks, slightly shyly, "Do you like music?"
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: "Oh, I love music. Where I come from, folk singers are held in high regard. It is how my people keep track of their history. Each family has a song to sing and a tale to tell."
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: "That sounds like my people as well, I have a little flute, if you'd like to hear it." Marten offered with a smile, producing a wooden flute with brass ends.
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: *Helena clasped her hands together in her lap and grinned from ear to ear, "Of course, that would be lovely!"
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *putting the flute to his lips, Marten blew a low tone to start with, and then let the tune flow out a lively, but quiet tune that invited the listener to clap, tap their feet or sing. Swaying with the bouncing time of the music, he tapped his foot and carried it into a forceful and attentive tune, stopping the flute, while his heavy bootheel kept time he began to clap along with his stomp, and began sing in a clean even voice that lifted up to the sky in a simple song*
"Merrily we sailed along,
Though the waves were plenty strong,
Down the twisted river Rhine,
Following the song.
Legend's faded storyline
tried to warn us all,
Oh, they called her Loreley,
Careful or you'll fall...
Oh, the stories we were told,
Quite a vision to behold,
Mysteries of the seas
In her eyes of gold.
Laying on a silver stone,
Such a lonely sight,
Barnacles become a throne,
My poor Loreley...
And the winds would cry,
And many men would die,
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...
And the winds would cry,
And many men would die,
And all the waves would bow down to the Loreley...
You would not believe your eyes,
How a voice could hypnotize,
Promises are only lies,
In a shade of mossy green, seashell in her hand,
She was born the river queen, ne'er to grace the land...
Oh, the song of Loreley
Charms the moon right from the sky,
She will get inside your mind,
When she cries 'Be with me,
Until the end of time,
You know you will ever be
With your Loreley...'"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion nugged Elyria"So the day has come what shall we do?"
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: Helena was awstruck. She blushed slightly and grinned. "That was beautiful. Where are you from?"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria looked at Alboin as she rubbed her side lightly where he had nugged her and seid "Well how sould I know" Then punching him in the arm she continued "And that heart why do you hit so hard all the time"Then as she sat up and pushed her hair back she seid "I am a girl you know"
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: "Well I'm originally from a little town that didn't have a name, but now I have a little house in a town called Brindle." Marten replied. "I pick up tales here and there, I heard that one about a month ago, in a town called Karellin."
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion grabed his arm and in a mocking voice cried out "Ow I have been woonded oh spair me great Elyria"Then with a luagh he seid more quietly "Elyria you may be a woman but you will all ways be my sister which gives you allthe benifits of being a man to me ecsept when it comes to you being with a man then I have to give you some trouble there" Albion held her by the shoulders "Besides if I don't do that what are bi brothers for hum?"
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: "I do miss home," she sighed but quickly changed the subject, "let me buy you breakfast"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "Yes" Elyria seid with an annoyed look on her face "What are you for if not for tormenting me."
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "See now you got it Elyria"Albion seid as he patted her on the back allmost makeing her fall off the bar stool
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *looking out the window at the sun, Marten grinned* "That would be lovely, so you aren't from here originally?" *smiling at her slightly, he found himself admiring her red hair, which was darker than his own, and not in such furious and untamable coils, or choked with road dust*
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria balaced her self back on to the barstool as she seid "Thats great Albion why don't you try to push me down the stairs next time?"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion raised his hand to his chin as though he was in deep thought then shakeing his head he seid "You know trhats not a bad Idea I could make it look like an accedent and every thing shure you may break a leg or even die but then I could take you back home with little or no fuss"
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: "No, no I am not," her voice was a bit more sullen than before, "would you like to take a walk then, if you are not hungry?"
2007-01-16 [Cia_mar]: watching the new group of people, cia sets her bag down at a table a bit removed, still shy about being around so many people in one place, and listens appreciatively to the singer...while doing this she takes out a smudge stick, pot of charcoal and parchment paper and begins to draw the scene before her
2007-01-16 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *taken aback, Marten stammered* "Did I say I wasn't hungry? But if you wish to take a walk my lady, certainly, I'll accompany you..." *confused by her manner, Marten tried to sound as accomodating as possible, and stood up, extending his hand courteously to her*
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "Albion you will never take me to Arien Fëfalas agenst my will"Elyria seid prodly as she sat staight up in the bar stool makeing her slightly taller than Albion
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion Sat up as well he towered almost a full 3 in. over Elyria then with a cocky smile he looked down at her and seid "Oh yes I will one day when I am tiered of playing this little game of hide and seek with you even if I have to carry you over my shoulder the whole time I will"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smirked as she put her hand on her hip and looked up at her brother"Hide and go seek is that what you think this is?Besides I remember being much better than you at that game."
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion smiled "We are older now and I am much better at traking now.And you used to cheat any way"
2007-01-16 [Lothuriel]: "Oh, I am sorry," *she felt a bit embarassed by her fumbling words* "We most certainly may eat. I am starving"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria placed her hand on her chest as though she was hert "Albion I never cheated"then with a cheshire cat smile she seid "bent the rules a bit maybe but never cheated"
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "I don't remember hideing the palace being allowed when playing woodland hide and go seek"Alboin seid as he crost his arms over his chest
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "Yah and I don't remember Queen Tamuríl's legons being allowed either"Elyria seid as she mockingly crosted her arms like her brother"Beside
2007-01-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion shugged his shoulders as he seid"Its not my fault that the woodland faeries liked to talk to me "Then turnig more toward Elyria he continued "Besides the garden is in the palace walls there for it is the palace end of story you cheated"
2007-01-16 [Cia_mar]: looks up after drawing for awhile... the room ahd changed a bit since she sarted the pic, but for the most part it looked the same...
her stomach grumbled and she started to put away her art suplies in favor of ordering breakfast...
2007-01-17 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria narrowed her eyes then turned her head away from Albion "I do not wish to continue with this convertion"
2007-01-17 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion smiled and shook his head"As you wish lady sister"Then paceing his hands on her shoulders he gentle turned her back towards him "So tell me how did you servive all this time?"
2007-01-17 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *still confused, Marten resumed his stool, and looked at her* "Do you feel alright?"
2007-01-17 [Lothuriel]: Her cheeks flushed red from embarassment, "Yes, yes of course I am alright," she smiled trying to hide her nervousness, "now, about that food."
2007-01-17 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *not quite convinced, but deciding to leave it alone, he agrees* Yes, I'm a bit starved!
2007-01-17 [Lothuriel]: *Helena waves at the bar keep and looks back to her new friend*
2007-01-17 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *looking at Helena with a smile, Marten keeps his mouth shut, not wanting to make her any angrier*
2007-01-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smiled "Now why would I tell you anything?"
2007-01-18 [Danboo]: Daniel comes downstairs to see this happening,"hmm
2007-01-18 [The Red Baron]: ALissius drained his first mug of caffeinated beverage, "Another, please," he said as he laid the huge mug on the bar.
2007-01-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion leaned on the bar a bit more and smiled as he seid "Becuase I am your brother and you love me pluse.I just want to know"
2007-01-23 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery finally found his stick, tucked away near a large keg of ale, and with a smile of triumph he returned to the bar "now who wanted what?" he asked*
2007-01-23 [The Red Baron]: "Ale for someone else, and caffeine for me."
2007-01-23 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery grunted in acknowledgemen
2007-01-23 [The Red Baron]: "Roger roger," Alissius paid up.
2007-01-24 [Elisha Kelly]: *those three coppers disappeared into Avery's and, then with a nod and a smile he hobbled back to kitchen to get breakfast started*
2007-01-25 [Danboo]: Daniel walks to the kitchen and asked Avery"Do you need any help?"
2007-01-25 [Elisha Kelly]: "whaddya think lad!" Avery said with a grumble "get ta peelin some spuds will ya... and don't cut yeself, none o the customers wanna be taasting ye blood!" Avery turned away from the boy and began searching amongst the pile of pots for the one he wanted, throwing the ones he didn't like over his shoulder, some barely missing Daniel*
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smiled as she shook her head "all right Albion name the place and I will tell you how I survived there"
2007-01-26 [The Red Baron]: Alissius scanned around and spotted Cia, "Cia!" he called out and waved.
2007-01-26 [Cia_mar]: hearing her name she looks up from her pack seeing Alissius she waves and smiles, puts her stuff away securely
"Good Morrow, M'Lord Alissius!"
2007-01-26 [The Red Baron]: "Lord?" he laughed, "Hardly. I'm just your typical roguish Woodland Watcher; I'm no glen-dweller to be schooled for lording."
2007-01-26 [Cia_mar]: laughs lightly
Oh i know that, but is sure sounded fun to say!
2007-01-26 [The Red Baron]: "Let's have some music!" he hollered to her in Varastrian forester fashion, "Nothing like a good Varastrian folk ballad to wake the sleepy heads up!"
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albions head popped up with all most a childesh grin "Good"Then puting his hand on his chin albion thought"Well you allready told me how you survived the dwarfs caves.Lets see"Then clasping both his hands together he continued"I know how did you get though the Black Dragon forest?"
2007-01-26 [Cia_mar]: *nodds, and takes out her lute* Any requests?
2007-01-26 [The Red Baron]: "Nothing specific," he approached her, "Lousy as my voice is, I'll sing along."
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "None of our kind has ever survived the journey through it and yet you went stairght through."Albio
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria gave Albion a slight smirk"well if you would let me tell you. I traveled by night first off to avoid the orce troops comeing down from the Black Dragon Montains.Last thing I wanted was to be ripped apart and who knows what else by them.As for the wairwolves I slepted in the trees yes wair wolves can climb but I am much lighter than them and if they tryed to climb the same trees I did the branches would have snappd not only wakeing me but causeing them to have a rather nasty fall.You should know this you defeated Wolfgar alfa male of the cresent moon pack.And I hate to tell you brother but the rumers are true there are still dragons in the montains yes they are smaller than their ansesters but they live."
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: At Elyrias last comment albion looked down and thought for am moment the looking back up again"How do you know the dragons have returned?"
2007-01-26 [Cia_mar]: "how about 'dark and stormy night'?"
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria stared her brother strait in the eye and seid "Becuase Albion I saw them pass over the moon at night I herd the sould of their wings and I herd their crys.i saw them walk though the trees by day and smelled them when I was down wind of them.Their only large a nof to take a small child and they are fully grown but the dragons have returned."
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion bit his lip slightly as he nodded his head"i beleive you.Only large anoff to take a small child you say?"The nodding his head again Albion continued" We might be ale to use our once feared enemy.If we cought a few and trained them the could be our horses of the skys.I sure Dresden would just love that another one of my ideas going to straingthen his army."
2007-01-26 [The Red Baron]: Dark and stormy night is good.
2007-01-26 [Cia_mar]: cia starts to strum the lute to begin the song, and realized suddenly that she forgot the tune...
oh dear, she stammers um maybe not that one... how about "Cat and the Fiddle" instead...she changes the chords and begins an upbeat tune and then sings....
Monday mornin' standin' on the corner,
Pardon me if we're getting in your way
We'll tip our hats, be you native here or foreigner,
Drop a coin if you're likin' what we play
Singin' hey diddle dee
Answer me this riddle,
Hey diddle do
Tell me what you will,
Dance all day with the Cat and the Fiddle,
Come and lay with the heather on the hill
full lyics/credit found at cia's bardic efforts
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria plced her hand apon his shoulder"Albio
2007-01-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion grabbed her hand and pushed off"Don't pretend to understand how it is to be the second prince Elyria you'll never understand.You
2007-01-27 [Elisha Kelly]: *meanwhile Avery had found the particular pot he had been searching for, and placed it down upon the stovetop, pouring oats, some fresh milk within*
2007-01-27 [Lothuriel]: *Helena walked in and sat down with her basket of herbs and spices. She let out a yawn followed by a heavy sigh as she looked around. Her tired eyes begged for sleep. She propped herself up on the bar and cleared her dry throat*
2007-01-27 [The Red Baron]: Alissius accompanied her, in his more than lousy singing voice.
2007-01-27 [Lothuriel]: *Helena smiled, as the song warmed her heart a bit. It was nice to see people happy and cheerful*
2007-01-27 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smiled trying to cheer up her brother "Albion you know Dresden would not do that to you .If any thing he will keap you as one of his consols.Then again you can all ways form a rebelon againest him."
2007-01-27 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion laughed a bit"Could you see see me and him fighting on the battle feild .We would look more like two fighting school boys than two princes of Arien Fëfalas"
2007-01-28 [Kurda]: ~Stands at the entrance of the tavern and softly clears my throat to gain a little attention.~ I need a tracker, a good one, for an endeavor I am undertaking. I will pay for any expenses and equipment that is needed as well as a sustantial fee upon finding my quarry!
2007-01-28 [The Red Baron]: "Tracker?" Alissius looks up at her, "How much are you planning to pay?"
2007-01-29 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria nugged Albion "Soands like a job for you brother"
2007-01-29 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion smiled and seid "While nothing would pleaser me more than leading some woman I do not even know all around the country side"Then leaning in more towards Elyria he continued"You forget lady sister Than I am to keap an eye on you and I could not leave in such a place alone.I know you to well."Then ending with a sarcastic grin he sat up again.
2007-01-29 [Kurda]: I can pay two hundred now, plus another three when I find him. That's not including any equipment or supplies, but I must warn you, the man I'm seeking is particularly..
2007-01-29 [The Red Baron]: "I'm game," Alissius said, "He's not going to be worse than the Undead heavy cavalry. Tell me more about my quarry."
2007-01-29 [Kurda]: His name is Illemar Dahranni. He suffers from a curse that makes any source of bright light painful or even harmful to him, thus it is unlikely that he will remain in a town for very long. He's a master of stealth and can cover his trail easily. If he's gone into the wild he'll need supplies so I'd either check the armory or the mageware shop.
2007-01-29 [The Red Baron]: "Very well," Alissius stroked his beard, "Got any clearer description of physical features, any distinctive markings, attire, etc?"
2007-01-29 [Lothuriel]: *Helena over heard the others talking. Their conversation sent chills up her spine. The thought of someone that ill-natured lurking around made her feel quite unsafe. She glanced at the man and quickly looked away. She kept scanning the tavern anxiously. The old man was suppose to meet her over an hour ago. It wasn't like him to be late. She tried to hide her fretful look.*
2007-01-29 [Cia_mar]: *had stopped singing and was listening to the conversation..
2007-01-29 [Lothuriel]: *She gave a quick smile to the man they call Alissius and quickly looked away. She had an uneasy feeling in her stomach and it was making her quite ill. She decided to walk outside to get some air. On her way out, she rushed right into a rather rough looking man who wasn't very pleased with her doing so.* "Watch where you're goin' wench!" He yelled at her, as he kicked her basket of herbs a good e feet in the air. Not wanting confrontation, she queitly and hurriedly tried to gather up her things. The man only laughed and went back to his drinking
2007-01-30 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *following Helena, Marten snarled at the rough looking man, tipping his chair backward with a deft kick, and continuing outside, not caring if the man would try to settle with him later* "Helena! Hey, wait!"
2007-01-30 [Lothuriel]: *Helena turned just as she was about to walk outside, "I'm sorry for rushing out like that. I, well come with me and I will tell you. This place just suddenly has a bad air about it. I just have to get out of here."
2007-01-30 [Lothuriel]: Just then, the drunken man grabbed Marten by the arm and attempted to swing him around, "you got somethin' you want to say to me, bard?"
2007-01-30 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *tightening his bracers and rewrapping the chain over his knuckles in his approximation of a nervous habit, Marten followed* "Alright, you seemed upset, I was just, well, worried about you..." The word tumbled out of his mouth awkwardly, as if they had to come through a very small door in his brain.
2007-01-30 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *turning into the man's motion without a word, Marten delivered a stunning blow to the man's cheekbone that made a thunderous crunch, the thick chain linking that covered the young warrior's knuckles would leave a neat pattern of bruises*
2007-01-30 [Lothuriel]: Helena gasped as the drunken man fell to the floor. It took her a moment to realize what had happened, "Yes, yes, erm I mean no, I am not ok," her voice was nervous, "Come one," she grabbed his wrist gently without thinking, "let's just get out of here, please."
2007-01-30 [Wulf Skjaldr]: *taking a few steps backwards, and then turning to follow her, Marten looked at the man, mentally cursing his lack of self control* "Sure, I think it's best, where shall we go?"
2007-01-30 [Lothuriel]: "I don't know, outside is fine with me," she didn't realize she was pulling at him.
2007-01-30 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery snorted and poked his head out of the kitchen to see what all the fuss was about and after taking in the sight of the drunk knocked out upon the floor he bellowed to the departing couple "Oi! Take that fella out with ye! Don leave 'im on tha floor!! Ye knock em out, yer responsible fer em!"
2007-01-31 [Kurda]: You couldn't possibly miss him. His skin, where you can see it, is as pale as death, his eyes are purple and catlike, and when he grins you can see his teeth are filed into needle points. His clothes are dark and protective and he wears a blindfold, but don't be fooled by it, it's only to protect his eyes from the sun. He WILL see us before we see him, his actions after that will be based entirely on his mood at the moment.
2007-01-31 [The Red Baron]: "Right," Alissius had his hands in a steeple position as he leaned forward, "Don't worry about seeing and not being seen, smelling and not being smelled. I can be any part of the forest I choose to be; I am a master of camouflage and my arrows almost never miss; the last time I missed my mark was waaay long ago, when I was 12 years old; at 223, I think I've had enough practice not to miss again. I won't take any payment now; though I expect to be fully paid when I do find and bring him. Do you want him dead or alive? And if alive, intact or "damaged"?"
2007-02-01 [Kurda]: I need him alive and unspoiled. I really should go with you, but ~indicates my pale skin and hair~ I am a step away from glowing in the dark. As for being a marksman, your arrows may not miss, but they can still be diverted. Illemar is a mage and has certain tricks he uses to keep himself safe from harm.
Also, beware of his miasma. If you happen to breathe any of it in you will have a maximum of two minutes to live, if you're lucky. If you can focus through the pain long enough drink this ~places a phial of amber-red liquid on the table~ it will counteract the effects.
2007-02-01 [Cia_mar]: *realizing all that was taking place, Cia placed her hand on Alissius' shoulder tentitively and with an alarmed look asked* "are you sure you should do this?"
2007-02-01 [The Red Baron]: "I must, Cia, it's a matter of honour now. I have accepted this job, and I must either accomplis it, or die trying. You can come with me, I could use your company along the way."
He turned to the mysterious woman, "Very well then, I shall depart when I get matters here sorted out."
2007-02-01 [Cia_mar]: *the prospect of a real adventure, and not just wandering like a gypsy both scares Cia and excites her...hesitant
2007-02-01 [The Red Baron]: "I don't want you to go against your will or to endanger yourself, this will be risky, but I would sure enjoy another Varastrian's company."
2007-02-01 [Cia_mar]: well one cannot hang about a tavern all her life, especially when i am used to wandering, besides this will give me somthing to write a new song about!
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion leaned on the bar and beggein to mumble to him self
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria raised her hands "now Albion don't get mad.Your the one that desided not to speak up not me .I could have just stayed here"
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion tured his head towards Elyria "yah and I could have barried my sword in you stumick to make sure you would stayed too.You forget sister I am your brother not some common foot solderyou would have ran as soon as stepped out of here"
2007-02-02 [The Red Baron]: "Wow? A song about me, Lieutenant Alissius Nalaron of the Woodland Watchers of Varastria. What're we waiting for?"
Then he remembers, "Just let me get my unicorn ready, he's in the stable."
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria staired at her brother for a moment "You wouldn't realy do that to me would you?"
2007-02-02 [Cia_mar]: *blushes* well i could write one... it has been awhile since i have been inspired to compose...
*looks up suddenly*
a unicorn!!! oh i have not seen one since i was a little girl!
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion tilted his head slightly as he sighed and seid"no Elyria I will not stab you in the stumic.But you may drive me to drink my dear sister."
2007-02-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria claped her hands and seid"oh goody let me be the first to buy you a drink."
2007-02-02 [The Red Baron]: "Well, don't let this one shock you, it's one of the king's cavalry; armoured and draped."
2007-02-25 [I have left]: *A tall half-orc walks into the tavern wearing hard leather armor. An axe hangs from his right leg and a dagger strapped horizonally on his lower back. He moves over to an empty table and sits down, back against the wall. He removes his dagger and places it in front of himself on the table.* For private conversation with him go to Black Arrow: Geth's Table.
2007-02-25 [I have left]: From his table, the half-orc calls over a bar-maid for some of the special.
2007-02-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smiled sweetly as she glanced at Geth.
2007-02-26 [I have left]: Meeting her gaze, Geth nods a hello but makes no other moves.
2007-02-26 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion turned to see what his sister was smileing at .Finally senting his gaze on Geth he shook his head and begain to lightly chuckle "Elyria you have a strange taste in men I must say."
2007-02-26 [I have left]: Geth, in seeing the other man's look, averted his eyes. He went back to his food.
2007-02-27 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria narrowed her eyes as she turned to Albion "And what is it to you who I choose brother.I am younge,able,an
2007-02-28 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion laughed lightly again as he watched his sister make her way accross the room.
2007-03-02 [Elisha Kelly]: The mid-morning sun shone merrily through the dusty windows of the tavern, bathing all in it's warm golden rays, an early indicator that a very hot day lay ahead.
2007-03-02 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery backed out of the kitchen carrying a large tray, full of delicious food that would serve as breakfast this hot morn. There were mountains of bacon, fried tomato, eggy bread and hash browns, platters of fresh fruit including grapes, apple and the exotic passionfruit, a giant pot of porridge as well as jugs of milk and cream. In smaller bowls there was honey, raisins, butter and jam. The tray seemed very heavy as it teetered back and forth on Avery's quivering arms, but somehow it made it the table safe and sound, where Avery then proceeded to arrange it just so before turning and bellowing "OI! come an get it you lot! 'fore it gets cold... hurry along hurry along!" he set some plates and eating utensils to the side of the table, before hobbling back behind the bar*
2007-03-02 [I have left]: Geth stands from his table says something to his companion, then walks out the door.
2007-07-25 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Brijco Humbledwarf strolls in with a rolling gait and sidles up to the bar. He carries an axe in one hand and cradle his helmet in the Other. He looks around as he sets both on the ground. Placing a foot on his helm, the road weary dwarf looks for thebartender to order a stout.
2007-08-10 [Elisha Kelly]: **Avery eyed the newcomer with little interest, just another weary face, in a crowd of weary faces albiet a bit shorter than most "An wah can I get ye this fine morn?" he asked**
2007-08-10 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Brijco sized up the bartender as he climbed into a stool. "Rock Ale,friend. Keep em coming as well, Need to be washing the road out o'me throat before I can'joy the special" This last part was said with a grin as he fished a stack of coins out from under his beard and set them on the bar.
2007-08-10 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen entered the tavern and made her way toward the bar. She breathed in deeply as the scent of the food laid out teased her nostrils.*
"How much for a plate of that divine smelling food?" she enquired, "Oh, and a cup of chicory tea?"
2007-08-11 [Elisha Kelly]: **Avery gave Ranewen an overly obvious wink as he poured a generous mug of rock ale for the Dwarf sitting before him
"for you sweets tha'll be two silver"
He deftly slid the frothing mug of ale to Brijco and eyed the collection of coins placed carefully upon the bar speculatively "will ye be wantin a room in this fine establishment fer a day or two sirrah?"
2007-08-11 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Humbledwarf drained his ale and slid it foreward for a refill,"I might be, " He slid the coin for his first drink and a refill forward,"If there is any available. Set me up a refill, good man, then I'll try that special. Could ne'er pass up a good mutton."
2007-08-11 [Elisha Kelly]: **Avery raised one of his hairy grey brows "bit early fer mutton sirrah, jus served up the mornin fare.. and as to the room, it depends on what ye be after, there's always a bed in tha common room, if ye want somethin private, it'll cost ye a bit more"
2007-08-11 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Humbledwarf set his face, contemplating his decision,"Bett
2007-08-11 [Elisha Kelly]: "tha'll set ye back 7 silvers, an 2 coppers fer the two ales, the buffet and tha private room" He grinned at the Dwarf as he held out his withered hand**
2007-08-11 [The Dog you Kicked]: *The Dwarf looked at the stack he had set on the bar, then picked it up and deposited in the Barkeep's hand,"There you go, friend,"Then he dribbled out two more coins,"and some for yerself and two more ales. Guess I should be checkin' out this room soon.
2007-08-11 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen raised an eyebrow at Avery's wink but said nothing, simply placing the two coins on the countertop and nodding.*
"Thank you," she murmured, turning to the buffet table.
2007-08-12 [Elisha Kelly]: **Avery grinned even more, as the coins all disappeared into some secret pouch he had hidden on his person "let me know when ye ready, an I'll show ye up ter the room" with that he hobbled back into the kitchen, only to return moments later with a small wooden tray carrying white ceramic tea set, that was a little battered and worn, but clean nonetheless.
"ere ye go Luv, ye chicory tea" he said to Ranewen "where will ye ave it? the booth by tha window's always nice this time'a day."
2007-08-12 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Humbledwarf drained another ale before he began to eat. As he ate he listened to the exchange between Avery and Ranewen and smiled. He gave a look to the door once, then went back to his food and drink.
2007-08-12 [Yuriona]: "Thank you," Ranewen replied, "the booth by the window sounds perfect." She moved towards it and sat down.
2007-08-13 [Elisha Kelly]: **Avery hobbled along after, and placed the tray down carefully upon the table, he looked back at Ranewen and said "there ye go luv, if ye need anythin else just shout out" he looked at her a moment, but not with his usual leer, instead he seemed almost thoughtful, thewn the moment passed and he ambled away, back behind the bar, where he poured yet another Rock Ale for the dwarf**
2007-08-13 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen nodded graciously at his words.*
"Thank you again," she said quietly, watching him a moment before he turned away. A slight frown crossed her features as he did so but she quickly shrugged it off, pouring herself a cup of the fragrant, steaming tea.*
2007-08-13 [The Dog you Kicked]: * The Dwarf nodded his thanks as another ale was set before him, since saying thanks was impossible through a filled mouth. After successfully washing down the food with more Ale as he pondered the rest of the crowd>,"Quiet Today?"
2007-10-01 [The Dog you Kicked]: * Humbledwarf slid his empty tankard forward on the bar, placing his hand palm down over it to indicate he was finished. Then he slipped down out of his seat, crammed his helm back on his head. Brijco produced more coins from under his beard and stacked them on the bar,"That should cover it" He said with a grin as he gathered up the rest of his belongings. Slinging his axe across his shoulder, he stifled a yawn and asked Avery "So where be this room I purchased? "
2007-10-12 [Elwyne]: Interesting place. I might try to join when I figure out which of my characters would fit the best.
2007-10-12 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery turns to the stranger with narrowed eyes* Now none o tha' thinkin aloud in here... go to black arrow tavern:characters fer tha stuff 'n nonsense! *he limps away mumbling about people not reading the house rules, then returns with a key* Come along dwarf, I'll show ye to ye room! *he hobbled along to the stairs, where he found his walking stick, and made his careful way upstairs*
2007-10-13 [The Dog you Kicked]: *Humbledwarf jams his helm back on his head and follows Avery, his gait a casual rolling style. "Lead the way," He says, plodding up after the Barkeep.
2007-10-25 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria watched Avery escort Drawft as she walked back to the bar.
2008-01-16 [dragon of death vally]: *sits down in the darkest corner in the back of the room far away from the bar and watches everyone in the room*
2008-01-17 [dragon of death vally]: *leans back agenst wall*
2008-01-21 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery returned to the bar, his breath coming in weezing gasps*
2008-07-08 [Danboo]: (I am so sorry for running off last time, i spent a great deal in depression over the loss of my godson and other family members that died, like 3 of them, i guess it wasn't a good year for my family to live, omg lame attempt to joke, anywho, im sorry for not being here and i will be on more often, and again sorry)
2009-04-24 [travs the bean]: The old barkeep walked into his tavern which now looked quite empty and dusty. He had been gone a long while and had found that things were not quite the same as they had once been. Quietly he found a broom and began to clean the main hall, sweeping the floor, and picking up fallen chairs. His inn was dark and cold, and with so much too do he sighed and returned to work.
2009-04-25 [Thaylian]: *awakening with a start, Thay hears the wind's call. Someone has returned to the tavern She opens the door to the small cottage she had called home for so long. She walks to the door. She looks a wild mess; her hair a tangle, her clothes worn and dirty* Hello? Who... Who's here? *A dagger in hand, she ventures to stick her head in the door*
2009-04-26 [travs the bean]: ** the barkeep, kept working, now somewhere in the kitchen, pilling discarded pots and pans here and there. He had filled the sink, loaded with suds and started to scrub, he was amazed at how quickly the inn had fallen into disarray.
A voice in the main hall caused him to pause for a moment. It was a young lady's voice, one that sounded of unease. He quietly put the dish back into the sink and wiped his hands. He bound his apron about, and stepped out into the main hall.
"Can I help you miss?" the old barkeep spoke in a calm cold voice.
2009-04-27 [Thaylian]: *Thay jumps at the sound of the voice and stares wide-eyed at the source. She curtsies, blushing feriously at her frayed nerves* Forgive me... I don't mean to intrude. I heard someone was here and... *she fidgets a bit, her daggers disappearing into thier hiding places* Would you like some help?
2009-04-27 [travs the bean]: **the barkeep looked around at the messy room, and the task that lay before him. He smiled warmly, and pulled a apron from under the bar. Dusting it off first he tossed it the young lady.*
"if your up to it. There is a lot to do here." he said," you can start in the main hall, I'll continue in the kitchen,"
2009-04-27 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen tentatively pushed the door to the tavern open and peeked inside. She had been passing by on the way to her own shop when she had noticed that there seemed to be life within the inn after the place had stood empty for so long.*
"Hello," she said, moving inside as she spied the bartender, "I thought that there was something different about this place." She glanced around the room.
"It would seem you have your work to cut out for you," she remarked, "My business has been very slow of late as well. I can assist with the cleanup if you so wish it." She gave the young woman there a polite nod as well.
2009-04-27 [travs the bean]: "well as you can see there is much to be done, and though neglected and broken down this place is still salvageable, so i would guess my dear it how much you would like to put into it." The barkeep smiled and tossed the young lady a mop and a bucket. "Though I think this place will be busy again once we get things all cleaned up."
2009-04-27 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen easily caught the mop and bucket, giving the barkeep a quick grin as she did so*
"Then the sooner the cleanup is finished, the sooner I may enjoy some tea," she answered. She filled the bucket with hot water that had been steaming over the fire and quickly set to work.
2009-04-27 [Thaylian]: *Thay smiles warmly and starts to rearrange the main hall, looking up at the walls and tisking softly. She runs home and comes back with her arms laden with repair suppiles. She starts to scrub the walls, patching weak spots with a practiced hand. She hums a slow, soft song to herself, loosing herself in her work.*
2009-04-28 [Igorina]: A smoker's low cough comes from the open tavern door. A skinny albeit rather short shadow is standing there with one arm leaning against the door wreathed in a plume of foul smelling smoke. " Ye gods, this place is a dump, " says a husky female voice. " I want to complain to the barkeep..." The shadow moves and the rather haggard looking face of Jynx comes into the light. The halfling strolls into the tavern, chewing the end of her cigar. She removes it and glances around. She looks a great deal thinner, ragged and hollow eyed and has more gray hairs than a halfling her age ought to have but as her eyes alight on Travs, a slight smile comes to her face. " H'lo old fellow..." she says quietly. " Sorry I've been gone..."
2009-04-28 [travs the bean]: "i take it you want your job back?" the barkeep spoke" very well, you can start with the storage room, most of it will have to be tossed and such, which means we are going to have order new supplies."
2009-04-28 [Igorina]: Jynx grinds out her cigar on the fireplace stones and grins. " Travs don't be so sentimental. I might cry, " she says and rolls up her sleeves and heads off to the storage room. There's a few minutes filled with rummaging noises, a crack of something being broken open and a hoot of disgust. " UGH! How long has this barrel of pickled herring been sitting here in the corner?!? " Jynx calls from the room.
2009-04-28 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen looked up as a third person entered the tavern. She gave a slight smile even as she righted a chair and continued her mopping.*
"It is reassuring to see some things remain the same," she murmured, "as if to spite the passage of time itself."
2009-04-28 [Thaylian]: *Thay checks her patch work and smiles* Some of us have not but time. Others... *She trails off, looking slightly troubled as she pulls out a pale of white wash to conceal the plaster. It isn't until this point that Thay notices her appearance, shrugging to herself* Some of us just take note of such things for reasons of our own. *She softly sings in elvish*
2009-04-29 [Igorina]: In the storage room Jynx hauls another bag of sprouting seed over by the door and then stops. She cranes her head out the door to see that no one is nearby and then crosses over to a corner of the room. One of her arms has been bandaged up, a nasty and infected looking mess. As she unrolls it, however, it soon turns out that infection and blood was mostly artfully applied theater paint over an old wound, making it look worse than it actually was. She slips a small pendant out of the bandages, an old and plain looking thing on the end of a frayed leather thong. She wipes it off and removes a small brick from the wall, an old hidey-hole. " I went through hell to get you, handsome, " she whispers to the pendant. " You'll be safe a little while. " She places it in the hidey hole, moves a few barrels and boxes around until she is satisfied and continues working.
2009-04-29 [travs the bean]: ** the barkeep said little, as the others worked. He kept to himself as if scarred by old wounds, reflecting on past moments, while dropping another load of dishes into the sink**
2009-05-03 [Thaylian]: *Thay makes quick work of white washing the entry way, moving into the kitchen. She stops behind the bar keep and tilts her head slightly, face smudged with a bit of white.* I've done with the vestibule. Would you like help in here?
2009-05-04 [travs the bean]: we'll need to get the rooms done upstairs first, i can handle the kitchen- maybe the halfling needs help in the storage rooms
2009-05-04 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen quietly worked at her job, beginning to hum softly a harmony to Thay's quiet song. She sighed as she finished, giving a quick nod of satisfaction turned to clean up any stray drops of white wash that had managed to find their way to the floor.
She stood silently listening to the barkeep and Thay or a moment before taking the dirty water out back and dumping it. She quickly refilled her pail with hot water and without a word, went up the stairs to begin working on the upper floors.*
2009-05-07 [Thaylian]: *Thay nods and heads up stairs, looking up at the ceiling and shaking her head. She goes to the nearest window and climbs out and up to the roof. She sees that the roof needs bolstering and decides to help with the rooms before playing with tar and tack paper. She swings herself back in through the window and retrieves her own cleaning supplies and taking a room*
2009-05-12 [travs the bean]: **the barkeep mumbled to himself, and tossed another set of pots into the big bin of soapy water. It took a bit, to work his way through it, but the work went quick. He was thankful for the help as the inn seemed to slowly look like it had in all of it's glory.
When the last of the dishes were done, he grabbed a mop, and cursed about the halfling prob falling asleep in the storeroom. HE decided he would go wake her up later as he drug the dirty mop across the stone floor. Soon the inn would be ready to open.
2009-08-07 [Thaylian]: *Thay goes from room to room then takes a bunch of shingles, tar and roofing paper to the roof, singing to the winds and repairing the bad spots*
2011-03-23 [Akayume]: ....Hello?
2011-05-07 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: Yes...?
2011-05-07 [Akayume]: *tumble weed*
2011-05-16 [Jino "ChaoS" Silver_flamE]: ::catches it::
