DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin walks up to Bed. He saw him sleeping, so he decided not to wake him up.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman is also checking on Bed, remembering that he wasn’t able to enjoy any of the soup from last night

“Oh hey”(edited)

Beman is holding a smaller cooking lot filled with a similar soup

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin looked over and saw Beman. “Oh, hey Beman.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“You came to check too?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Yeah. I get this bad feeling that it was my fault this happened to him. Did you here what he said?”

“He told me to get away from him. That one statement just doesnt sit well with me.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I can see why it wouldn’t sit right.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

The entrance to the hospital tent opens. In enters Corian, holding a small medical journal. He looks surprised to see the two here.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Oh, hey Corian.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Hullo”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Here to check on Bedivere, I take it?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Yeah, he wasn’t able to get any soup last night so I made some more, but I don’t know if he’s okay….you want some?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…no, that’s quite alright. But thank you anyway.”

“Bedivere is still unwell, but stable. He’s been slipping in and out of consciousness, but I haven’t been able to rouse him long enough to get any meaningful dialogue.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin stayed quiet, not knowing how to respond.

“Mm, I see. Thank you for everything Corian.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin. I didn’t get a chance to ask you before, but is there anything you can tell me about your fight with Bedivere?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin flinched a little.

“Uh….”

He remained silent.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He knows something, after all.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman carries the pot and exits

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian’s gaze turns icy and focused.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Well I’ll check again in a bit, Bye”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Promise you won’t tell anyone?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You have my confidence, Tarquin, but I must hear what you know.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, fine.”

“When we were fighting, I noticed something… Strange.”

“He seemed enraged, like he was going try and kill me at any point.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian tilts his head, listening intently.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“After the battle, I went to go tell him that it was a good match, and…”

He paused.

“He… Reached for his sword.”

“I don’t know anything past that.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…he didn’t already have it? I thought you were sparring.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I knocked it out of his hand and he put it in his holster afterwards.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian puts his finger to his chin in thought.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel Bedivere is hiding a lot from us.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So you had a sparring match. He lost and was disarmed.”

“Then you say he reached for his weapon again, and that he seemed ready to kill.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“And then… he fell ill?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I know the look of death when I see it.”

“And he had it all over his face.”

“I don’t know how he got sick, but that’s all I know.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Hm…”

Corian starts walking toward the back of the tent.

He flips open the journal and starts writing something down.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Corian?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I would ask you to stay here a little longer, if you don’t mind.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I wasn’t planning on going anywhere else honestly

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“If Bedivere wakes soon I will have questions for him, but I will also want to run a test or two.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sure, anything to help.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“U-ugh… Aww… That was… a really good…(yawn) dream…” Bedivere stirs and finally starts to gain a clear consciousness. He looks around and notices Tarquin and Corian near his bed.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian looks over.

“Speaking of.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Oh. Hello, Tarquin! And you…Corian! Wh-where am I?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Good morning, Bedivere. You are in a hospital. Do you know why?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“You’re in the sick bay. You passed out when you starts barfing.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…Thank you, Tarquin.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“No problem!”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian sighs, and moves beside Bedivere.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere starts to remember the previous day. He was… Sparring with Tarquin… He lost… He was angry… “Barfing? Huh. I guess that elbow did a hell of a lot of damage, huh?” Bedivere laughs weakly.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Bedivere… I’d like to ask you some questions, if you think you are well enough for it.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I…uh… I don’t remember last night very well, but I’ll do my best to oblige you. I just need the toilet first.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…Very well. I doubt you’ve regained your strength, so I will walk you there.”

Corian holds out his hand.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere grabs his hand, and gets out of bed. Immediately, he feels his legs shaking under the pressure of his body. What the hell happened to him?

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Easy. There’s a latrine just at the other end of the tent.” He puts Bedivere’s arm over his shoulder and guides him over.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Thanks, Corian. Umm… I kinda… Don’t want an audience.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Okay, don’t worry, I’ll leave for now

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian waits outside.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

While doing things I’d rather not write, Bedivere remembers more. He had reached for his sword after losing to Tarquin. He had been disgusted with himself, and then…? “Alright, I’m finished. You can come in now!”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, all done?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Alright, Bedivere.”

Corian starts helping him back to bed.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“So, what were you gonna ask me about, Corian?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I need to ask you about your fight yesterday.

“Please, tell me everything you can remember up until you fell ill.”

He sits down while waiting.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bed, please tell everything.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin, please let me handle this.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry, I stepped out of line.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere strains to remember the facts. “OK. So, I met Tarquin and he challenged me to a spar. We went to the training grounds, and watched Natanya fight…someone? After that, I saw some other people… They were, Uhh… Placing bets. So, then we went to the battlefield.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Mhm.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is really struggling now. “I remember that I was really stressed, and that I was kinda fighting… aggressively. Tarquin elbowed me to the ground, and declared victory, and then… Bedivere pauses for a couple seconds. He realises how much people could hate him if he told the exact truth here. He quickly came up with a lie. “I reached to my sword, planning to place it at his neck, to signify how, in the battlefield, that situation wouldn’t mean safety. But, I realised that could be…misinterpreted. So, I accepted defeat.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian shoots a warning glare to Tarquin, warning him to keep quiet.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin winced at that statement. Was it true then? Did he really mean to attack him?

“I… I need to leave.” And he ran out.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin? You OK buddy?”

Buddy? What is this, primary school? Rein it in, Bed. You’re acting suspiciously nice.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Yeah, I’m.. Fine. Just, dealing with some unpleasant thoughts.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere knew EXACTLY what he was implying. He was still revolted by what he had planned to do… “OK then…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Tarquin…

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look, Bed, I have a question for you, and I need you to answer honestly.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin . . . You look like you could use some air.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Do you… Do you hate me?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Calm down. “What? No! Why on earth would I hate you when I barely even know your name? And I’m not so petty as to hate someone over a game.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“….”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin. Let me handle the patient.”

“he is still unwell. You can work out your differences later.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Fine.” and he left.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Calm down, Bedivere! Showing more of your temper is NOT helping your case.(edited)

Loyal- 04/01/2016

……

“Now then.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Yes?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You tell me that after a friendly sparring match, you stuck your sword to his neck. As though he needed a reminder of what would happen in a real battle.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“No.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“That sort of behavior would be … egregious, even as an act of passion.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I said, I was planning to.”(edited)

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So you didn’t actually do it?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Of course not. Like I said, people could interpret that VERY badly.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“They could. They would. But all you did was … reach for your sword.”

“A perfectly innocuous gesture given the circumstances.”

“Why would Tarquin feel as … threatened and uncomfortable as he showed himself to be here, just now?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considered this genuinely. Why was he still so uncomfortable? “Well…I guess I looked pretty angry. I kinda was.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Perhaps you didn’t feel you could speak truthfully while the source of your aggression was still around. But there are two things you need to consider.”

“The first, is that after that you fell ill – violently so, to the point of threatening your life – and there’s something more at play there than a shot to the gut.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere studied Corian intensely.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“The second, is that I am a priest and your doctor, and you have my utmost confidence. If there is anything you need to get off your chest — and trust me when I say there is little you can offer that would phase me — you can rest assured I will neither judge you nor betray your trust in doing so.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considers this proposal. Tell him. Why? It could fix everything. If you just let it all out. But I don’t want to. Why? Come on, Bedivere, why is this so morbid and secret? You didn’t even do anything wrong! But, I still don’t want to talk about it. About my home…about… Her… “…I’m fine, thank you. Now all the grim talk is over, let’s move on to happier topics. How long til I’m out of here?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Disappointing, but not surprising.

“As it stands, it will be another few days before I can clear you for discharge.”

“Since you’re conscious,” Corian procures another vial of that unpleasant-smelling medicine, “Perhaps you can take this yourself.”

“Your illness left you severely dehydrated. This stuff helps with hydration, nutrition, water retention… and perhaps the taste will remind you not to get into this kind of trouble in the future.”(edited)

He offers it to Bedivere.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere takes it nervously. “Well Corian, you could work on your advertising, but thanks anyway.” Bedivere takes a swig from the cordial. He makes retching noises, but isn’t actually sick. “Ewwwwwwww. Eww. Yuck… I thought this was supposed to help me stop vomiting, not cause more!” Bedivere laughed at his joke. He starts to feel stress and fear loosening their grip on him, and is feeling content.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Truth hurts sometimes, son. No sense hiding that.” he chuckles with Bedivere.

“You should get some more rest for now. I’ll see about bringing you something solid to eat later, and see how your gut’s feeling then.”

Corian stands up carefully.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I think it was the elbow to the ground that did my stomach trouble, honestly.”

Yeah, it totally wasn’t your body going to shit after you contemplated killing an innocent person.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“If you say so. I have other duties to attend to, but… if you find yourself ‘thinking’ it might be something else, I will remain all ears.”

Corian bows slightly. “Get some sleep, Bedivere.”

He turns, about to leave.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is slightly annoyed by Corian’s constant tampering in private affairs, even if he has Bedivere’s best wishes in mind.

Bedivere decides to head to sleep, and after a few seconds, does so.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

((exit))

Mappy- 04/01/2016

================================================================

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin walked off to the area near the battle fields. Could it be? Had He finally found one of THEM? He almost completely denied it before, but Tarquin was having second thoughts about Bed. He sat at the table and thought to himself.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere has woken up again, and is reading a book. He wonders if people were visiting while he was asleep.

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Sometime in the evening, Mev and Cross go to visit Bedi. “Looks like you’re well. Well enough to enjoy a book at least.”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is startled by a voice above him. He peers out of his thick book and looks up. “Mev! Nice to see you again!”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev smiles. “You too. What are you reading this time? It always seems to be something different.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Mm. I’m reading a comedic book now. It follows a casual thief, a pigtailed, eccentric cleric and a stern knight through an adventure for their lord. Anyway, enough about that. How’s it going?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“Nothing much has happened. I did some training with Nora, she’s really insistent on learning how to use a sword.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Nora? I…don’t think I’ve met her. Although I’ve forgotten bits of last night…”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“That’s understandable, she showed up around the time when we were eating Beman’s food. You must have just missed her.”

“I never asked how you’re feeling by the way.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considers this question for a few moments. “I…I feel kind of scared. I really lost my temper last night, which I think might have caused the illness. And I’m worried about sparring with people again, in case I hurt them.” Bedivere starts to wonder whether his illness was stress. It being shame doesn’t make much sense, medically…

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“You…you lost your temper?” (I was there most of the time, when did he do that?)

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“During the fight, I was really angry, and I don’t know why. I didn’t tell Corian or Tarquin that, because… I think that they believe I was going to kill Tarquin. They definitely don’t trust me. So revealing that I was angry wouldn’t have helped my situation.”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

(I’m honored you feel that way.) “I have an idea, if you’re up for it.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Hey, I’m back, Bed! How’re you felling?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Speak of the devil… “Hey there, Tarquin. How’s it going? I was just talking to Mev. By the way Mev, you can tell me about that later.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, good to hear.”

“Anyway, I know you just came from being sick but…”

“Is it rude of me to ask of your past?”

“I have some questions that need to be answered, and i feel you might know them.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

What the hell? Does this guy…know my history? I guess if he spoke to Romulo, maybe… “Yeah, it is kinda rude, but I’ll answer them anyway. I reserve the right to remain silent, though.” Bedivere chuckles.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, first off, I have to know. Were you invloved with any… bandits?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is tense, as this is very familiar to him… “By involved, do you mean…affiliated with bandits?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin started to tense up and lowered his head. “Can you… can you promise not to tell ANYONE what I’m about to say?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Hearing Tarquin, Mev walks outside. “Call me back when you two are done.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere starts to feel uncomfortable, just like when Romulo shared his troubled past. “Look, I wasn’t in a bandit group, if that’s your question. You…if you don’t wanna talk about this, don’t. But if you do, fine. Just, uhh, ask Mev to get out if you do.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry Mev, this has to be just me and Bed.”

Tarquin breathed a little and started.

“About two months before I came here, I used to be a prince of a very small island nation, not far from here.”

“I lived happily there and learned many things, until I was asked to be married.”

“Of course, knowing me, I was not okay with that, so I picked up my stuff and left the castle.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“That does sound like you…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I told myself I would live off the land, and use my survival skills and live out there.”

“But.. after a while, I started to miss my parents and realized what I did was selfish and wrong, so I went back to the castle.”

“But when I got there, everything was in shambles.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere put two and two together easily, but allowed him to continue.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bandits that were cruel in nature starting burning the town and killing people, it was terrible.”

“I ran quickly up to the castle to see if my parents were safe, and…”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin started to choke up a bit.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Stop.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“They were being TORTURED.”

“And once they saw me, they killed them, right in front of my eyes.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I…”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I killed them.”

“I killed them all.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Nonsense.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Any of them in the castle, not a single one escaped.”

“The next day, there was no crowning ceremony.”

“No one was alive to do it.”

“I left, to go and take revenge on any who had been invloved.”

“And, here I am.”

“That day, I saw someone who looked very much like you.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere looked up at Tarquin, and made his voice determined. “I feel for you. You’ve lost everything, and you think it’s your fault. But unless you’re leaving something out, this is not your fault. And it doesn’t concern me, so…”

“…what?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“It IS my fault, BED! I KILLED THEM! If I hadn’t left, they’d be alive right now and… and..”

Tarquin burst into tears.

“…Bed…I…I just want them back. I’ve tried to make a new life with you guys, I tried to put on a brave face but I, I can’t do it anymore.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere felt pathetic. He couldn’t find the words or actions to comfort a broken friend. “Tarquin, just…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“My entire life, taken away because I was selfish and stupid.”

“If I… If I had just stayed, I could have saved them and the whole town.”

“But what do I know? I’m just a stupid, self-centered idiot.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere wracked his brains for some kind of comfort. “Look, I don’t know who these people were, or what they were like. But I know that if they gave a damn about you, they wouldn’t want you to be like this, blaming yourself and moping. What happened to Tarquin the Proud?”

Bedivere started to feel very ill again, but stays silent.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin the Proud is an idiot. I killed an entire NATION, Bedivere. There is no justification for that.”

Tarquin buried his face in his arms.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere loses patience with Tarquin and his self pity, and starts to lose his temper again. “Gods, just STOP! What is moping doing? Huh? And more importantly, WHY are you dragging ME into this?! I’ve already told you, I didn’t kill your family, or your servants, or your civilians. So just STOP…” Bedivere retches slightly. “Acting as though the ENTIRE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND YOU!” Bedivere throws up again and runs out of the tent.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“….I knew it.”

“You’re just like them.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere runs out of the tent to a nearby plain, and throws up again.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“…shit.

“Hey, look, don’t push it. I won’t mope, just get back in the tent.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is starting to lose consciousness again, as he walks away from the tent absentmindedly and sloppily.

Bedivere manages to find the strength to realise what he’s doing, and he stumbles back to the tent. “Just…get out. I’m sick. I can’t deal with this RUBBISH right now.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I’m sorry, Bed. I got what I wanted. But, I shouldnt have pushed you. Just walk with me back to the tent.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“What you wanted? What was the point of that conversation… Just…Ugh… I’m only a couple metres away. Just…go… Anywhere else, and find another shoulder to cry on.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I wanted to see how you would react.”

Tarquin pulled out his axe and pointed it at Bedivere. “And I got all the info i needed.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere’s exhausted mind took a few seconds to register the situation. “Y-you…? You think… I’m one of the bandits?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman is wandering aimlessly and sees the commotion

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Maybe, maybe not.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Heh…heh…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I just want to know.”

“Were you trying to kill me in our fight?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

begins to walk over

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere notices someone. “Tarquin… be-BEHIND YOU!”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Don’t play games with me! ANSWER MY QUESTION!”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Uh…”

“If you want to spar…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“STAY OUT OF THIS!”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere laughs at himself for trying that.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Okay…”

Beman turns and starts to walk away.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bed, you know you’re weaker than me.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Alright. I wasn’t trying to kill you. I did consider it, because I was angry.**

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Thank you. That’s all I needed to know.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“But a murderer is not who I am.”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin sheathed his axe and walked away.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“That’s it?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I have nothing more to say to you.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“You just threaten to kill me, and then just…walk away?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“You were too, right? Call it even.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

…(edited)

“I…need to get back. Go do what you need to do. Whatever the hell that could he…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Stay safe while you can. I know what guys like you used to do. Your past won’t stay behind you forever. It’ll come back, and when it does, you better be ready.”

“You better have friends to back you up.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere completely ignores him and heads to the tent for recovery.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin starts heading away, but not before saying, “Cause Elimine knows I won’t.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“C-corian?! Anyone here?! Hello?”

“Ugh…..”

Bedivere lies back into his sickbed.

And he contemplates the last few moments.

Maybe… Maybe I can find some way of making him trust me…?

Whatever. I’m just gonna sleep.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin was furious. He went to the training grouds and kicked over the table. Then, he threw his axe into the tree and sat on the ground and bawled into his arms.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman walks in, grabs axe out of the tree, and places it beside Tarquin

“I think that’s yours”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

sigh “Hi Beman.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Sup”

Beman walks over and picks the table back up

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Thanks, I kinda had a rage moment rigtht there.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“That’s a kinda rage moment?”

“Hate to see an actual rage moment”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Heh, that’s a good one.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I make those time to time.”

Beman sits in front of Tar

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

sigh “I just… had a ton of bad memories come flowing back.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Oh?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I… I remembered my past when talking to Bed today.”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“My condolences…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I just need someone to talk to…”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Hello”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“…”

“I… Beman, I need a friend, can you do that for me?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I can do many things. I don’t judge.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry, I..I can’t. Im sorry Beman, I’ve only met you a little while ago. This is very personal.”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev arrives at the sickbay with Nora in his arms. She’s sleeping soundly and not bleeding through the nose at all.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I promise you I’ll do something for you later, okay?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman shrugs

“Fair enough, and you don’t need to do anything for me. I didn’t do anything for you after all.”

Beman sees Nora being carried off.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

In the hospital tent, Corian has been attempting to tend to Bedivere, who somehow seems to have gotten himself out of bed and sick all over again.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Oh the combat grounds are open”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He is not pleased with this development.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Hey, who’s that being carried off?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He does not immediately notice the wyvern rider nor the girl in his arms and will likely need to have his attention captured in some way.

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“Sorry Father Corian, we went a bit too far again.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Please never let this end

fuck my nose hurts

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He turns, annoyance in his eyes from the situation with Bedivere spilling over.

“Good … evening, Mevardan… What’s the problem?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev is afraid of the look Corian gives him. “Uh…. Nora! She passed out from exhaustion. I’m going to leave her here for now, so she can rest.”

“I need to clean up the arena, so I’ll be going.”

Runs out

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…I see. Thank you, I will take care of he–“

“…Goodness he’s faster than he looks.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

I know

I was training with him

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So, Nora.” He starts setting an end table near Nora with water. “What brings you here today?”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

What? He knows i’m faking?

This guys good

“Urgh…. Where am i?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You are in a hospital tent. Water?” He points to a pitcher and a small bowl.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“T-thanks… Ouch..”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian pours out a small measure for her. “I’m guessing the two of you were training. How did it go?”

Besides that some part of it apparently brought you here.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“It was fun!”

“I think i have overworked myself though” Nora skulls the water

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Wait, Beman!”

“Come back!”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Well, training is about learning your limits as much as it is about pushing them, I suppose. Did you at least learn some of those limits, today?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look, I’m sorry. If you want to go fight Mev, that’s fine. I shouldnt have taken your spot like that.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Don’t try to sing while running…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

……

Really?

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Or sing while doing jumping jacks”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Oh heavens.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Or do triple of what he set”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Huh? Oh, nah nah. I was just finding something to do…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He nods sympathetically.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Well, if you have nothing, would you like to spar?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Eh sure, why not?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Well then. Try not to do … those things, in the future.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, cool.” Tarquin walks off to the combat zone.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Nora giggles

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I’m just going to do a cursory check up to make sure you didn’t sprain anything… After that, if you’d like to rest for awhile before heading back out, I’d see no reason not to let you leave.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright. Do you need me to get up?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Yes, just a few simple stretches.”

“Do as I do, and if you feel any outstanding pain, tell me.”

Corian begins a series of slow stretches, starting from the arms and working his way down.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Its just aching

I don’t think he would be interested in that

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Ahem.”

“You aren’t going to make an old man stand here like this all day, are you?”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Oh… Sorry my body just kinda… Aches”

“Its no pain”

“But my nose does kinda hurt…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He stands back up straight.

“I see. Exhaustion tends to do that… but…”

He leans in closer, and prods her nose experimentally.

“Doesn’t seem to be broken.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Ouch!”

“It hurts like hell”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Hrm… Alright, let me get you some ice. You can rest here awhile.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He quickly returns with a small bag filled with ice, and hands it to her.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Thanks”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Just keep this held to your nose for a short while, and keep your head elevated.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Nora puts it on her nose

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I’d say about a half hour for now, and we’ll see how it feels after.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright thanks Cor”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Anytime. I’ll be in the area if you need me, Nora.” He bows, and steps out of sight.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Well at least now i have some peace and quiet

Nora starts singing a song she’s working on

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin ran to the tree and sat under it. He tried to remove the thought from his mind, but to no avail. He sat there, looking dark and depressed.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya was making her way to the sparring field, that was until she noticed an under-the-weather Tarquin sitting by a tree.

“Hey! You alright?” Natanya questioned, crouching to get to eye-level with the man

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Sigh “I’d be lying if I said yes.”

“I’ve had a lot of… bad memories come to me lately.”(edited)

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya tilted her head slighty, intrigue making her lean closer

“Well… talk to me about it, I don’t know how I can help but I can certainly try”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Nat… Can I trust you? This is something that I dont usually tell people. Bed is the only other person I’ve told this to, and that was for special circumstances.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

“Look, you helped me out there. I think I should help you and repay that debt, no?” she replied(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, I need to get this off my chest.”

“About two months ago, I was a prince at a small island not too far from here.”

“There I lived with my family and learned many things there.”

“However, one day, my father tole me I was to be married to a girl to expand our power.”

“Now, knowing me, I did NOT take this well.”

“So… I ran away from home, taking an axe, some food, and other survival supplies with me.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya was at a loss for words

She looked at the ground before looking back at Tarquin, contemplating how she should form her words

“U-uh… I… don’t know what to say to that.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“After that, I was thinking about going back.”

“It was selfish and rude of me to leave, and I felt as though my parents were worried sick, so I started my trek back.”

“But… when I got back …”

Tarquin paused for a second.

“Everything was destroyed.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin…” Natanya said before she cupped her hand over her agape mouth.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I… I ran to the castle as quickly as I could. I needed to see my parents.”

“I… was too late to save them.”

“The people who were attacking held them hostage and were beating them for info about the money and metals.”

“When they… when they saw me… they killed them, right in front of my eyes.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya grimaced, keeping her hand over her mouth. She had felt it, the feeling of tears had started to well up in the back of her throat and she wouldn’t be able to hold them back.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin walks up to Bed. He saw him sleeping, so he decided not to wake him up.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman is also checking on Bed, remembering that he wasn’t able to enjoy any of the soup from last night

“Oh hey”(edited)

Beman is holding a smaller cooking lot filled with a similar soup

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin looked over and saw Beman. “Oh, hey Beman.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“You came to check too?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Yeah. I get this bad feeling that it was my fault this happened to him. Did you here what he said?”

“He told me to get away from him. That one statement just doesnt sit well with me.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I can see why it wouldn’t sit right.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

The entrance to the hospital tent opens. In enters Corian, holding a small medical journal. He looks surprised to see the two here.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Oh, hey Corian.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Hullo”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Here to check on Bedivere, I take it?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Yeah, he wasn’t able to get any soup last night so I made some more, but I don’t know if he’s okay….you want some?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…no, that’s quite alright. But thank you anyway.”

“Bedivere is still unwell, but stable. He’s been slipping in and out of consciousness, but I haven’t been able to rouse him long enough to get any meaningful dialogue.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin stayed quiet, not knowing how to respond.

“Mm, I see. Thank you for everything Corian.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin. I didn’t get a chance to ask you before, but is there anything you can tell me about your fight with Bedivere?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin flinched a little.

“Uh….”

He remained silent.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He knows something, after all.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman carries the pot and exits

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian’s gaze turns icy and focused.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Well I’ll check again in a bit, Bye”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Promise you won’t tell anyone?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You have my confidence, Tarquin, but I must hear what you know.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, fine.”

“When we were fighting, I noticed something… Strange.”

“He seemed enraged, like he was going try and kill me at any point.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian tilts his head, listening intently.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“After the battle, I went to go tell him that it was a good match, and…”

He paused.

“He… Reached for his sword.”

“I don’t know anything past that.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…he didn’t already have it? I thought you were sparring.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I knocked it out of his hand and he put it in his holster afterwards.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian puts his finger to his chin in thought.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel Bedivere is hiding a lot from us.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So you had a sparring match. He lost and was disarmed.”

“Then you say he reached for his weapon again, and that he seemed ready to kill.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“And then… he fell ill?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I know the look of death when I see it.”

“And he had it all over his face.”

“I don’t know how he got sick, but that’s all I know.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Hm…”

Corian starts walking toward the back of the tent.

He flips open the journal and starts writing something down.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Corian?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I would ask you to stay here a little longer, if you don’t mind.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I wasn’t planning on going anywhere else honestly

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“If Bedivere wakes soon I will have questions for him, but I will also want to run a test or two.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sure, anything to help.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“U-ugh… Aww… That was… a really good…(yawn) dream…” Bedivere stirs and finally starts to gain a clear consciousness. He looks around and notices Tarquin and Corian near his bed.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian looks over.

“Speaking of.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Oh. Hello, Tarquin! And you…Corian! Wh-where am I?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Good morning, Bedivere. You are in a hospital. Do you know why?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“You’re in the sick bay. You passed out when you starts barfing.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…Thank you, Tarquin.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“No problem!”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian sighs, and moves beside Bedivere.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere starts to remember the previous day. He was… Sparring with Tarquin… He lost… He was angry… “Barfing? Huh. I guess that elbow did a hell of a lot of damage, huh?” Bedivere laughs weakly.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Bedivere… I’d like to ask you some questions, if you think you are well enough for it.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I…uh… I don’t remember last night very well, but I’ll do my best to oblige you. I just need the toilet first.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…Very well. I doubt you’ve regained your strength, so I will walk you there.”

Corian holds out his hand.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere grabs his hand, and gets out of bed. Immediately, he feels his legs shaking under the pressure of his body. What the hell happened to him?

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Easy. There’s a latrine just at the other end of the tent.” He puts Bedivere’s arm over his shoulder and guides him over.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Thanks, Corian. Umm… I kinda… Don’t want an audience.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Okay, don’t worry, I’ll leave for now

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian waits outside.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

While doing things I’d rather not write, Bedivere remembers more. He had reached for his sword after losing to Tarquin. He had been disgusted with himself, and then…? “Alright, I’m finished. You can come in now!”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, all done?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Alright, Bedivere.”

Corian starts helping him back to bed.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“So, what were you gonna ask me about, Corian?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I need to ask you about your fight yesterday.

“Please, tell me everything you can remember up until you fell ill.”

He sits down while waiting.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bed, please tell everything.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin, please let me handle this.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry, I stepped out of line.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere strains to remember the facts. “OK. So, I met Tarquin and he challenged me to a spar. We went to the training grounds, and watched Natanya fight…someone? After that, I saw some other people… They were, Uhh… Placing bets. So, then we went to the battlefield.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Mhm.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is really struggling now. “I remember that I was really stressed, and that I was kinda fighting… aggressively. Tarquin elbowed me to the ground, and declared victory, and then… Bedivere pauses for a couple seconds. He realises how much people could hate him if he told the exact truth here. He quickly came up with a lie. “I reached to my sword, planning to place it at his neck, to signify how, in the battlefield, that situation wouldn’t mean safety. But, I realised that could be…misinterpreted. So, I accepted defeat.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian shoots a warning glare to Tarquin, warning him to keep quiet.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin winced at that statement. Was it true then? Did he really mean to attack him?

“I… I need to leave.” And he ran out.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin? You OK buddy?”

Buddy? What is this, primary school? Rein it in, Bed. You’re acting suspiciously nice.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Yeah, I’m.. Fine. Just, dealing with some unpleasant thoughts.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere knew EXACTLY what he was implying. He was still revolted by what he had planned to do… “OK then…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Tarquin…

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look, Bed, I have a question for you, and I need you to answer honestly.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin . . . You look like you could use some air.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Do you… Do you hate me?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Calm down. “What? No! Why on earth would I hate you when I barely even know your name? And I’m not so petty as to hate someone over a game.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“….”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin. Let me handle the patient.”

“he is still unwell. You can work out your differences later.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Fine.” and he left.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Calm down, Bedivere! Showing more of your temper is NOT helping your case.(edited)

Loyal- 04/01/2016

……

“Now then.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Yes?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You tell me that after a friendly sparring match, you stuck your sword to his neck. As though he needed a reminder of what would happen in a real battle.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“No.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“That sort of behavior would be … egregious, even as an act of passion.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I said, I was planning to.”(edited)

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So you didn’t actually do it?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Of course not. Like I said, people could interpret that VERY badly.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“They could. They would. But all you did was … reach for your sword.”

“A perfectly innocuous gesture given the circumstances.”

“Why would Tarquin feel as … threatened and uncomfortable as he showed himself to be here, just now?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considered this genuinely. Why was he still so uncomfortable? “Well…I guess I looked pretty angry. I kinda was.”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Perhaps you didn’t feel you could speak truthfully while the source of your aggression was still around. But there are two things you need to consider.”

“The first, is that after that you fell ill – violently so, to the point of threatening your life – and there’s something more at play there than a shot to the gut.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere studied Corian intensely.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“The second, is that I am a priest and your doctor, and you have my utmost confidence. If there is anything you need to get off your chest — and trust me when I say there is little you can offer that would phase me — you can rest assured I will neither judge you nor betray your trust in doing so.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considers this proposal. Tell him. Why? It could fix everything. If you just let it all out. But I don’t want to. Why? Come on, Bedivere, why is this so morbid and secret? You didn’t even do anything wrong! But, I still don’t want to talk about it. About my home…about… Her… “…I’m fine, thank you. Now all the grim talk is over, let’s move on to happier topics. How long til I’m out of here?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Disappointing, but not surprising.

“As it stands, it will be another few days before I can clear you for discharge.”

“Since you’re conscious,” Corian procures another vial of that unpleasant-smelling medicine, “Perhaps you can take this yourself.”

“Your illness left you severely dehydrated. This stuff helps with hydration, nutrition, water retention… and perhaps the taste will remind you not to get into this kind of trouble in the future.”(edited)

He offers it to Bedivere.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere takes it nervously. “Well Corian, you could work on your advertising, but thanks anyway.” Bedivere takes a swig from the cordial. He makes retching noises, but isn’t actually sick. “Ewwwwwwww. Eww. Yuck… I thought this was supposed to help me stop vomiting, not cause more!” Bedivere laughed at his joke. He starts to feel stress and fear loosening their grip on him, and is feeling content.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Truth hurts sometimes, son. No sense hiding that.” he chuckles with Bedivere.

“You should get some more rest for now. I’ll see about bringing you something solid to eat later, and see how your gut’s feeling then.”

Corian stands up carefully.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I think it was the elbow to the ground that did my stomach trouble, honestly.”

Yeah, it totally wasn’t your body going to shit after you contemplated killing an innocent person.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“If you say so. I have other duties to attend to, but… if you find yourself ‘thinking’ it might be something else, I will remain all ears.”

Corian bows slightly. “Get some sleep, Bedivere.”

He turns, about to leave.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is slightly annoyed by Corian’s constant tampering in private affairs, even if he has Bedivere’s best wishes in mind.

Bedivere decides to head to sleep, and after a few seconds, does so.

Mappy- 04/01/2016

================================================================

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin walked off to the area near the battle fields. Could it be? Had He finally found one of THEM? He almost completely denied it before, but Tarquin was having second thoughts about Bed. He sat at the table and thought to himself.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere has woken up again, and is reading a book. He wonders if people were visiting while he was asleep.

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Sometime in the evening, Mev and Cross go to visit Bedi. “Looks like you’re well. Well enough to enjoy a book at least.”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is startled by a voice above him. He peers out of his thick book and looks up. “Mev! Nice to see you again!”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev smiles. “You too. What are you reading this time? It always seems to be something different.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Mm. I’m reading a comedic book now. It follows a casual thief, a pigtailed, eccentric cleric and a stern knight through an adventure for their lord. Anyway, enough about that. How’s it going?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“Nothing much has happened. I did some training with Nora, she’s really insistent on learning how to use a sword.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Nora? I…don’t think I’ve met her. Although I’ve forgotten bits of last night…”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“That’s understandable, she showed up around the time when we were eating Beman’s food. You must have just missed her.”

“I never asked how you’re feeling by the way.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere considers this question for a few moments. “I…I feel kind of scared. I really lost my temper last night, which I think might have caused the illness. And I’m worried about sparring with people again, in case I hurt them.” Bedivere starts to wonder whether his illness was stress. It being shame doesn’t make much sense, medically…

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“You…you lost your temper?” (I was there most of the time, when did he do that?)

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“During the fight, I was really angry, and I don’t know why. I didn’t tell Corian or Tarquin that, because… I think that they believe I was going to kill Tarquin. They definitely don’t trust me. So revealing that I was angry wouldn’t have helped my situation.”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

(I’m honored you feel that way.) “I have an idea, if you’re up for it.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Hey, I’m back, Bed! How’re you felling?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Speak of the devil… “Hey there, Tarquin. How’s it going? I was just talking to Mev. By the way Mev, you can tell me about that later.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, good to hear.”

“Anyway, I know you just came from being sick but…”

“Is it rude of me to ask of your past?”

“I have some questions that need to be answered, and i feel you might know them.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

What the hell? Does this guy…know my history? I guess if he spoke to Romulo, maybe… “Yeah, it is kinda rude, but I’ll answer them anyway. I reserve the right to remain silent, though.” Bedivere chuckles.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, first off, I have to know. Were you invloved with any… bandits?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is tense, as this is very familiar to him… “By involved, do you mean…affiliated with bandits?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin started to tense up and lowered his head. “Can you… can you promise not to tell ANYONE what I’m about to say?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Hearing Tarquin, Mev walks outside. “Call me back when you two are done.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere starts to feel uncomfortable, just like when Romulo shared his troubled past. “Look, I wasn’t in a bandit group, if that’s your question. You…if you don’t wanna talk about this, don’t. But if you do, fine. Just, uhh, ask Mev to get out if you do.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry Mev, this has to be just me and Bed.”

Tarquin breathed a little and started.

“About two months before I came here, I used to be a prince of a very small island nation, not far from here.”

“I lived happily there and learned many things, until I was asked to be married.”

“Of course, knowing me, I was not okay with that, so I picked up my stuff and left the castle.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“That does sound like you…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I told myself I would live off the land, and use my survival skills and live out there.”

“But.. after a while, I started to miss my parents and realized what I did was selfish and wrong, so I went back to the castle.”

“But when I got there, everything was in shambles.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere put two and two together easily, but allowed him to continue.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bandits that were cruel in nature starting burning the town and killing people, it was terrible.”

“I ran quickly up to the castle to see if my parents were safe, and…”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin started to choke up a bit.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Stop.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“They were being TORTURED.”

“And once they saw me, they killed them, right in front of my eyes.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“I…”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I killed them.”

“I killed them all.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Nonsense.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Any of them in the castle, not a single one escaped.”

“The next day, there was no crowning ceremony.”

“No one was alive to do it.”

“I left, to go and take revenge on any who had been invloved.”

“And, here I am.”

“That day, I saw someone who looked very much like you.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere looked up at Tarquin, and made his voice determined. “I feel for you. You’ve lost everything, and you think it’s your fault. But unless you’re leaving something out, this is not your fault. And it doesn’t concern me, so…”

“…what?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“It IS my fault, BED! I KILLED THEM! If I hadn’t left, they’d be alive right now and… and..”

Tarquin burst into tears.

“…Bed…I…I just want them back. I’ve tried to make a new life with you guys, I tried to put on a brave face but I, I can’t do it anymore.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere felt pathetic. He couldn’t find the words or actions to comfort a broken friend. “Tarquin, just…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“My entire life, taken away because I was selfish and stupid.”

“If I… If I had just stayed, I could have saved them and the whole town.”

“But what do I know? I’m just a stupid, self-centered idiot.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere wracked his brains for some kind of comfort. “Look, I don’t know who these people were, or what they were like. But I know that if they gave a damn about you, they wouldn’t want you to be like this, blaming yourself and moping. What happened to Tarquin the Proud?”

Bedivere started to feel very ill again, but stays silent.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin the Proud is an idiot. I killed an entire NATION, Bedivere. There is no justification for that.”

Tarquin buried his face in his arms.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere loses patience with Tarquin and his self pity, and starts to lose his temper again. “Gods, just STOP! What is moping doing? Huh? And more importantly, WHY are you dragging ME into this?! I’ve already told you, I didn’t kill your family, or your servants, or your civilians. So just STOP…” Bedivere retches slightly. “Acting as though the ENTIRE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND YOU!” Bedivere throws up again and runs out of the tent.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“….I knew it.”

“You’re just like them.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere runs out of the tent to a nearby plain, and throws up again.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“…shit.

“Hey, look, don’t push it. I won’t mope, just get back in the tent.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere is starting to lose consciousness again, as he walks away from the tent absentmindedly and sloppily.

Bedivere manages to find the strength to realise what he’s doing, and he stumbles back to the tent. “Just…get out. I’m sick. I can’t deal with this RUBBISH right now.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I’m sorry, Bed. I got what I wanted. But, I shouldnt have pushed you. Just walk with me back to the tent.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“What you wanted? What was the point of that conversation… Just…Ugh… I’m only a couple metres away. Just…go… Anywhere else, and find another shoulder to cry on.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I wanted to see how you would react.”

Tarquin pulled out his axe and pointed it at Bedivere. “And I got all the info i needed.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere’s exhausted mind took a few seconds to register the situation. “Y-you…? You think… I’m one of the bandits?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman is wandering aimlessly and sees the commotion

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Maybe, maybe not.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“?”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Heh…heh…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I just want to know.”

“Were you trying to kill me in our fight?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

begins to walk over

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere notices someone. “Tarquin… be-BEHIND YOU!”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Don’t play games with me! ANSWER MY QUESTION!”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Uh…”

“If you want to spar…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“STAY OUT OF THIS!”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere laughs at himself for trying that.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Okay…”

Beman turns and starts to walk away.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Bed, you know you’re weaker than me.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“Alright. I wasn’t trying to kill you. I did consider it, because I was angry.**

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Thank you. That’s all I needed to know.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“But a murderer is not who I am.”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin sheathed his axe and walked away.

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“That’s it?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I have nothing more to say to you.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“You just threaten to kill me, and then just…walk away?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“You were too, right? Call it even.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

…(edited)

“I…need to get back. Go do what you need to do. Whatever the hell that could he…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Stay safe while you can. I know what guys like you used to do. Your past won’t stay behind you forever. It’ll come back, and when it does, you better be ready.”

“You better have friends to back you up.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

Bedivere completely ignores him and heads to the tent for recovery.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin starts heading away, but not before saying, “Cause Elimine knows I won’t.”

jddaepicboss- 04/01/2016

“C-corian?! Anyone here?! Hello?”

“Ugh…..”

Bedivere lies back into his sickbed.

And he contemplates the last few moments.

Maybe… Maybe I can find some way of making him trust me…?

Whatever. I’m just gonna sleep.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin was furious. He went to the training grouds and kicked over the table. Then, he threw his axe into the tree and sat on the ground and bawled into his arms.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman walks in, grabs axe out of the tree, and places it beside Tarquin

“I think that’s yours”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

sigh “Hi Beman.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Sup”

Beman walks over and picks the table back up

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Thanks, I kinda had a rage moment rigtht there.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“That’s a kinda rage moment?”

“Hate to see an actual rage moment”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Heh, that’s a good one.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I make those time to time.”

Beman sits in front of Tar

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

sigh “I just… had a ton of bad memories come flowing back.”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Oh?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I… I remembered my past when talking to Bed today.”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“My condolences…”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I just need someone to talk to…”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Hello”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“…”

“I… Beman, I need a friend, can you do that for me?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“I can do many things. I don’t judge.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Sorry, I..I can’t. Im sorry Beman, I’ve only met you a little while ago. This is very personal.”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev arrives at the sickbay with Nora in his arms. She’s sleeping soundly and not bleeding through the nose at all.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I promise you I’ll do something for you later, okay?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

Beman shrugs

“Fair enough, and you don’t need to do anything for me. I didn’t do anything for you after all.”

Beman sees Nora being carried off.

Loyal- 04/01/2016

In the hospital tent, Corian has been attempting to tend to Bedivere, who somehow seems to have gotten himself out of bed and sick all over again.

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Oh the combat grounds are open”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He is not pleased with this development.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Hey, who’s that being carried off?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He does not immediately notice the wyvern rider nor the girl in his arms and will likely need to have his attention captured in some way.

Tarips- 04/01/2016

“Sorry Father Corian, we went a bit too far again.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Please never let this end

fuck my nose hurts

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He turns, annoyance in his eyes from the situation with Bedivere spilling over.

“Good … evening, Mevardan… What’s the problem?”

Tarips- 04/01/2016

Mev is afraid of the look Corian gives him. “Uh…. Nora! She passed out from exhaustion. I’m going to leave her here for now, so she can rest.”

“I need to clean up the arena, so I’ll be going.”

Runs out

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“…I see. Thank you, I will take care of he–“

“…Goodness he’s faster than he looks.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

I know

I was training with him

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“So, Nora.” He starts setting an end table near Nora with water. “What brings you here today?”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

What? He knows i’m faking?

This guys good

“Urgh…. Where am i?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“You are in a hospital tent. Water?” He points to a pitcher and a small bowl.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“T-thanks… Ouch..”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Corian pours out a small measure for her. “I’m guessing the two of you were training. How did it go?”

Besides that some part of it apparently brought you here.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“It was fun!”

“I think i have overworked myself though” Nora skulls the water

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Wait, Beman!”

“Come back!”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Well, training is about learning your limits as much as it is about pushing them, I suppose. Did you at least learn some of those limits, today?”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Look, I’m sorry. If you want to go fight Mev, that’s fine. I shouldnt have taken your spot like that.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Don’t try to sing while running…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

……

Really?

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Or sing while doing jumping jacks”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

Oh heavens.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Or do triple of what he set”(edited)

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Huh? Oh, nah nah. I was just finding something to do…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He nods sympathetically.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Well, if you have nothing, would you like to spar?”

bemoney- 04/01/2016

“Eh sure, why not?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Well then. Try not to do … those things, in the future.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, cool.” Tarquin walks off to the combat zone.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Nora giggles

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I’m just going to do a cursory check up to make sure you didn’t sprain anything… After that, if you’d like to rest for awhile before heading back out, I’d see no reason not to let you leave.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright. Do you need me to get up?”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Yes, just a few simple stretches.”

“Do as I do, and if you feel any outstanding pain, tell me.”

Corian begins a series of slow stretches, starting from the arms and working his way down.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Its just aching

I don’t think he would be interested in that

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Ahem.”

“You aren’t going to make an old man stand here like this all day, are you?”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Oh… Sorry my body just kinda… Aches”

“Its no pain”

“But my nose does kinda hurt…”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He stands back up straight.

“I see. Exhaustion tends to do that… but…”

He leans in closer, and prods her nose experimentally.

“Doesn’t seem to be broken.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Ouch!”

“It hurts like hell”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Hrm… Alright, let me get you some ice. You can rest here awhile.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

He quickly returns with a small bag filled with ice, and hands it to her.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Thanks”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Just keep this held to your nose for a short while, and keep your head elevated.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Nora puts it on her nose

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“I’d say about a half hour for now, and we’ll see how it feels after.”

Lawls- 04/01/2016

“Alright thanks Cor”

Loyal- 04/01/2016

“Anytime. I’ll be in the area if you need me, Nora.” He bows, and steps out of sight.

Lawls- 04/01/2016

Well at least now i have some peace and quiet

Nora starts singing a song she’s working on

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Tarquin ran to the tree and sat under it. He tried to remove the thought from his mind, but to no avail. He sat there, looking dark and depressed.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya was making her way to the sparring field, that was until she noticed an under-the-weather Tarquin sitting by a tree.

“Hey! You alright?” Natanya questioned, crouching to get to eye-level with the man

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

Sigh “I’d be lying if I said yes.”

“I’ve had a lot of… bad memories come to me lately.”(edited)

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya tilted her head slighty, intrigue making her lean closer

“Well… talk to me about it, I don’t know how I can help but I can certainly try”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Nat… Can I trust you? This is something that I dont usually tell people. Bed is the only other person I’ve told this to, and that was for special circumstances.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

“Look, you helped me out there. I think I should help you and repay that debt, no?” she replied(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“Alright, I need to get this off my chest.”

“About two months ago, I was a prince at a small island not too far from here.”

“There I lived with my family and learned many things there.”

“However, one day, my father tole me I was to be married to a girl to expand our power.”

“Now, knowing me, I did NOT take this well.”

“So… I ran away from home, taking an axe, some food, and other survival supplies with me.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya was at a loss for words

She looked at the ground before looking back at Tarquin, contemplating how she should form her words

“U-uh… I… don’t know what to say to that.”

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“After that, I was thinking about going back.”

“It was selfish and rude of me to leave, and I felt as though my parents were worried sick, so I started my trek back.”

“But… when I got back …”

Tarquin paused for a second.

“Everything was destroyed.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

“Tarquin…” Natanya said before she cupped her hand over her agape mouth.

DuffleBag- 04/01/2016

“I… I ran to the castle as quickly as I could. I needed to see my parents.”

“I… was too late to save them.”

“The people who were attacking held them hostage and were beating them for info about the money and metals.”

“When they… when they saw me… they killed them, right in front of my eyes.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/01/2016

Natanya grimaced, keeping her hand over her mouth. She had felt it, the feeling of tears had started to well up in the back of her throat and she wouldn’t be able to hold them back.(edited)

Combat Zone

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora waits at the training ground for Mev

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev arrives at the training grounds and sees Nora. “Hey, you’re here early! Guess you’re excited.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Well Yeah!”

Nora picks up her sword and gets into position

Nora bows

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev laughs. “Maybe a bit too excited. First you need to stretch so you don’t pull anything.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Woops”

Nora drops her sword

“What stretches should we do?”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Just simple ones. Legs, arms, back, and whatever else you can think of.”(edited)

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora starts stretches… shes doing it really badly

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Okay…how about this. Repeat what I’m doing.”

Wii fit trainer pose

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Oh, alright”

Nora stretches like Mev

Tarips-04/01/2016

After 10 minutes of stretching, Mev relaxes. “Okay, I promised Corian we would start with simple training, so that’s what we’re gonna do.” “We’re starting with simple sword swings.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Damnit… “Alright then” Nora picks up her sword and stands next to Mev

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Start with a simple downwards slash. I’ll make small corrections every few swings.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora breathes out “Ok…” Nora swings 3 times and the fourth time she accidentally lets go of her sword and hits the ground

Tarips-04/01/2016

(Oh gods what have I gotten myself into.) “I’ve realized my mistakes. We’re not starting with swords training. WE’RE STARTING WITH RUNNING. LET’S GO.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman has absolutely nothing to do, so he wanders in, and sees Nora getting some training from Mev.

he sits and watches

Lawls-04/01/2016

Huh? “Alright” Nora keeps a steady pace with Mev

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Lawls you rolled 4.

Tarips-04/01/2016

((ayyy))

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora tries her hardest to overlap Mev. She trips, luckily Mev catchs her shirt(edited)

Tarips-04/01/2016

“WE’RE NOT STOPPING.” Mev pulls Nora along while running.

Lawls-04/01/2016

“I WON”T”

Nora runs even faster and trys to overlap Mev…. She doesn’t learn her lesson

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Lawls you rolled 4.

Lawls-04/01/2016

Even though Nora is trying to get infront of Mev she is barely keeping up

Tarips-04/01/2016

“WE’RE GOING FOR 10 LAPS AROUND THE TRAINING FIELD.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Good luck!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora losing her breathe “h-how many have done!?!?”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Think of the progress and not the goal! Or something like that!”

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev gives Beman a thumbs up.

“5 MORE LAPS.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman returns the thumbs up

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora groans “alright……”(edited)

While on the 7th lap Nora sings even with being exhausted

Tarips-04/01/2016

“NO SINGING, ONLY SHOUTING.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora starts shouting the song(edited)

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman leaves to check the commotion outside

Tarips-04/01/2016

After the tenth lap, Mev walks around once more to cool off. “Now comes push-up! Drop and give me 20!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora faceplants out of exhaustion

Then tries to do push ups

“3…..4…..”

Tarips-04/01/2016

(Oh shit, maybe I’m pushing her too hard.) “Don’t give up! Your legs are tired, but not your arms! You can do it!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“7!….8!….9!……10!”

“18… 19. 20! 21… 22!… 23…. 24…. 25!”(edited)

Nora jumps up

“Whats next!”

Tarips-04/01/2016

(I haven’t thought this far yet.) “Sit-ups! 50 of them!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Time passes “74…. 75!”

“NOW?”(edited)

Tarips-04/01/2016

(How is she doing so well?) “J-Jumping jacks. 100!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

More? Seriously… she starts shouting the song in beat to her doing jumping jacks

Time passes

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Nora is one sweaty chick rn))

Tarips-04/01/2016

((she needs more TRAINING))

Lawls-04/01/2016

“And i’m cool like the rain and i’m hot like the sun. Im a neon rainbow and you’re no fun….”

“300”

bemoney-04/01/2016

((She about to sweat off all the exp she got so far))

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Now?”

Oh fuck i’m going to vomit…

Hold it….

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Now, you go clean yourself up. It’s going to be several days of this before you can use a sword.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora face plants again

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev looks at the ground, astonished. (I’m going to need to tone this training down. A lot.) Mev picks Nora up and takes her to the sick bay.

Lawls-04/01/2016

Broken nose…. Totally worth it…

Tarips-04/01/2016

((no it isn’t))

Lawls-04/01/2016

Ouch it really fucking hurts(edited)

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Someone fight me))

Tarips-04/01/2016

((be there soon))

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman has already mopped up the blood left behind by Nora’s broken nose

Cause it broke

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev arrives at the training grounds to clean up the swords and notices Beman.

((STAHP

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Beman cleaned the place up already

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Oh, is that Mev?”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Oh”

“Hey”

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Hey. I heard you wanted a battle. Mind if I join, Mev?”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Oh”

Beman moves to the sidelines

Beman wanders off to do things

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“NO, wait, come back!”

(Dammit, Tarquin! You can’t get anything right.)

Tarips-04/01/2016

“I was just here to clean up after the training. Looks like Beman was way ahead of me.”

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

Runs after Beman.

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Speaking of which…and he’s gone.”

Sigh (Mev goes off to play with Cross.)

bemoney-04/01/2016

enters with Tar

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Alright, you can go first.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman picks up his lance and shield.

and walks over to one side of the ring

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

Tarquin unsheathes his axe.

“Alright, at your ready.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Let’s go.”

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Your move.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

((1-2 is my win, 3-4 is a draw, 5-6 is your win))

“Turns don’t exist in combat”

Beman raises his guard and advances slowly

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

sigh “Oh boy.”

Tarquin raises his axe and charges at immense speeds towards Beman.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 1 for a total of 1.

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

Though he charged towards him quickly… His attack bounced off of Beman’s sheild and he was sheild bashed.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman took the opportunity to throw out a stab, seeing as Tarq has no armour, Beman uses the wood end of the lance

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@bemoney you rolled 3 for a total of 3.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman was a second too slow as Tar already jumped back out of range.

Beman raises his guard again

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Alright, no more fooling around.”

Tarquin strides back and forth to try and fake out Beman.(edited)

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 6 for a total of 6.

bemoney-04/01/2016

((How do you face someone out?))

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

Tarquin faded left, but returned right and slashed at Beman, getting a solid hit.

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Oof”

Beman stepped back, reeling not from the pain, but the force of the blow

Beman recovers quickly to shield bash Tar

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@bemoney you rolled 1 for a total of 1.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman lands a solid bash, landing squarely on Tar’s upper chest

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

“Augh!”

Tarquin gets up and tries to shake it off, but feels a huge pain on his chest.

(Gah, I can’t focus. I’m sorry Beman, but I cant give you an honest spar right now, there’s too much going on.)

Tarquin lunges forward and brings his axe down on Beman.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 5 for a total of 5.

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

Tarquin jumps and slams his Axe home onto Bem’s armour, knocking him back a little.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman steps back a couple of times, at the brink of losing his balance.

(This guy is strong, wayyy strong)

Beman regains balance and approaches cautiously with his shield and lance raised together

Seeing an opening, Beman steps forward with a shield bash to end it all.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@bemoney you rolled 6 for a total of 6.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman’s opening was but an illusion, as Tar…

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

As Tar dodged with ease and slammed the side of his axe into Bem with all his force.

Suddenly, something came to him.

“NO!”

He stopped.

“I…I have to go.” And he left.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman fell to the ground, a bit disoriented from the force of the axe(edited)

“He is strong…”

Beman slowly stood up, tired from that bout, but can go another round of he pushed himself.

“Doesn’t even say goodbye, must be having a rough day…”

“Oh well.”

Beman remains in the area, doing a workout where he removes all his armour, and benchpresses it

As well as other workouts that involve using his armour as a weight

AOMRocks20-04/01/2016

lets fukin fight @Loyal ill rek u

SnuggleBug-04/01/2016

LOL

DuffleBag-04/01/2016

((So, are you like croosing dimesnsions or…))

AOMRocks20-04/01/2016

((i don’t know, they’re just having a staff fight

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Heal each other to death

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev arrives at the arena and sees Beman working out. “You’re gonna need to teach me some of those exercises.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Hm?”

Beman was in the middle of squats

“Oh these aren’t that complicated, but they require a bit more strength, I would start lighter”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“I’m trying to train Nora and I ran out of excercise after…4? But anything would be useful.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Oh for Nora? These exercises will kill her.”

He says as he drops his armour on the ground, creating a really loud thud

So you did jumping jacks, running, pushups, and sit ups?

Well

She can do lunges, those are good for legs

Squats are good for her abdomen

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev flinches at the sound of dropped armor. Cross, who is also here, flinches as well. “Those are pretty good ideas.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Nora is an archer, so perhaps legs strength would be a place to start so she can run quicker,

Tarips-04/01/2016

Cross growls softly. “Air chair? That could work too.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

But archers require different talents from a knight so I may be wrong

Beman shrugs

((Cross is the wyvern?

((And he speaks?

Tarips-04/01/2016

“She’s an archer, but she wants to use a sword.”

((He is a wyvern, he can’t speak, but I get him

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Kk

“I noticed

“And I can see why, archers have no way to defend themselves”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“She can’t even hold the sword right. Stabbing them with the bow would be more effective.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Everyone starts somewhere”

“She seems enthusiastic about it, at least.”

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev smiles reminiscently. “Yeah, see does. She works to the point where she passed out.”

“But that’s a topic for another time.”

“Do you want to spar? To make up for interrupting your training.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“You interrupted nothing, I’m just occupying myself at this point.”

Beman puts his armour on

“Ready when you are.”

Beman equips his lance and shield and makes his way to the opposite end of the ring

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Do you want to fight me alone? Or…” Cross roars. “Do you want a challenge?”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Hmm, let’s make it a challenge, I haven’t fought a wyvern knight yet.”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Then let’s go!” Mev leaps onto Cross and grabs the lance on the wyvern’s side. He charges forward.

((first to 3. Do you want 1-2 or 5-6?))

bemoney-04/01/2016

((1-2

Tarips-04/01/2016

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Tarips you rolled 3.

Tarips-04/01/2016

Cross jumps at Beman, throwing his feet out like a hawk.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman blocks the claws, turning his shield to push off the wyvern

((Considering the circumstance, you’re gonna do a lot of rolling m8))

Tarips-04/01/2016

Jumping back, Mev shallowing stabs at Beman.

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Tarips you rolled 2.

Tarips-04/01/2016

Beman was prepared however, and effortlessly knocked the lance out of his hand.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman follows up with a stab

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@bemoney you rolled 3 for a total of 3.

bemoney-04/01/2016

The wyvern screeched, startling Beman, making him fall back a little

He tosses mevs lance back at him

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Thanks, but next time, let me handle my own weapons.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Whatever you say.”

Beman raises his guard

Tarips-04/01/2016

Cross turns quickly, attacking Beman with his tail.

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora runs to the practice area and sits down

Tarips-04/01/2016

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Tarips you rolled 3.

Tarips-04/01/2016

Beman blocks the tail, but is pushed back, leaving a trail in the ground. “You’re pretty good!”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Cmon! Mev you can do it!”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman acknowledged the compliment and steps forward

His shield raised. He can’t find a good opening, he’s too slow and he doesn’t have the reach

Tarips-04/01/2016

Cross slowly circles Beman, attempting to find his own opening. Unable to find one, Cross charges in with his foot again.

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@Tarips you rolled 3.

Tarips-04/01/2016

((stalemate for days))

bemoney-04/01/2016

((I think it would be good modding if I grabbed))

((Gdi roll something good))

Tarips-04/01/2016

((if we get 2 more stalemates, then we increase the range to 1-3 and 4-6))

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Just apply it now, I’m getting sleepy))

Tarips-04/01/2016

Beman takes the hit unfazed and Cross latches on. In a feat of gargantuan strength, the throws the wyvern to the side, leaving it open.

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman ignores the searing pain coursing throughout his body and charges in for a lance stab

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/01/2016

@bemoney you rolled 1.

bemoney-04/01/2016

((Ayyy

Tarips-04/01/2016

((AND HE’S DOWN))

bemoney-04/01/2016

Seeing that neither mev nor cross could react, Beman tapped mev on the head with his lance

“I think I win”

Tarips-04/01/2016

Mev scratches his head, laughing.

Lawls-04/01/2016

Knew he would win

Tarips-04/01/2016

“You just threw a wyvern!”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“I did”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“I guess all that strength training pays off.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman falls over onto his back(edited)

Tarips-04/01/2016

(And there he goes. There’s something about this arena that injures people. Or maybe it’s me.)

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Man, I am exhausted

Tarips-04/01/2016

“B, are you okay? Wait, I think I have a vulnerary somewhere.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Yeah I’m fine, don’t worry, just tired”

Lawls-04/01/2016

Nora walks down to them(edited)

“Great fight guys”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Do you need help getting back to your tent/room?”

((covering all my bases))

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman doesn’t notice Nora as he takes off his armour

“Nah I’m good”

“I just need to catch my breath”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Oh no I’m fine”(edited)

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Ok, I guess you’re a lot tougher than I imagined.” (He took a wyvern came out unscratched. What is he made of?)

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Oh, Nora? Hey. How are you feeling?”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“My nose has gotten better and i am feeling alot better”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“That’s better”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Nora, you should rest. Your muscles are going to hurt like hell in the morning.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

“Same goes for me, I’m gonna turn in for the evening, sweet dreams.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“I’m fine Mev.. I kinda want to spar you again!”

“Oh good night B”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Night Beman.”

bemoney-04/01/2016

Beman carries his armour and belongings and heads to his tent

Tarips-04/01/2016

“This is an order Nora. If we spar, you won’t be able to move in the morning.”

Lawls-04/01/2016

“Urgghhh Fine…”

Tarips-04/01/2016

“Thank you. I’ll walk you back.”
