Bedivere wakes up after a lovely dream, smiling and ready for a new day. He then remembers he’s stuck in the sick bay. He also remembers that Tarquin wants him dead. Bedivere decides to feign sleep again, so that he MIGHT be able to fight back if Tarquin tries to take advantage of his weakened state.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

After talking with Natanya, Tarquin starts to realize that…. he shouldn’t have attacked Bed like that. I mean, you cant hold grudges, right? He got a bowl of soup from Beman and walked over to the sick bay.

“Hey…uh… sorry about yesterday. I was… really mad, and I shouldnt have done what I did.” Tarquin placed the soup next to Bed. “I don’t know if you’re awake to hear this, but just know that I’m sorry and I brought you some soup. All I ask is a second chance. I didn’t mean for any of this to happen.” Then, he started to walk out.(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere manages to remain “asleep” through this apology, but decides to mention it later. If he’s telling the truth, Bedivere supposes he can forgive him. And besides, he’s comfy. No point ruining that…

Bedivere waits for Tarquin to leave and begins wolfing down the soup. Can you wolf down a liquid? Bedivere isn’t sure, but doesn’t particularly care.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman was taking a hike down the trail nearby, small animals have gathered around him as he walked

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin was exhausted. Some much had happened those past few days, he couldnt believe it. He just wanted to sit down and relax. He was about to sit down, when he saw Beman. Tarquin hesitated, as he had done a lot of mean stuff to Beman.

After a little bit of thought, Tarq approached Bem and said, “H-hey Bem, how are you?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

The animals all scatter

“Hm? Oh Hey Tarquin.”

“Nothings happening so I guess I’m fine”

“How about you?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“I’m fine.”

Tarquin started walking with Beman.(edited)

bemoney- 04/02/2016

((Beman’s walking))

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hey, listen, I know I’ve been a huge jerk to you lately, and I’m sorry, it’s just I’ve had a lot going through my mind lately.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Eh don’t worry about it.”

“We all have those days I suppose”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Still though, I’m sorry and I’ll try not to do it again.”(edited)

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“I hope you succeed”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“So do I.”

Tarquin looks around.

“You knowm it’s very peaceful out here in the woods,”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“It is…”

some of the animals return to their original positions on beman’s head

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“It’s just… I feel like nothing could go wrong here, like I could sleep here for all of eternity, don’t you?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Hmm, I can see things going wrong here.”

“But naps are nice”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“I feel as though the atmosphere is a lot better than down at camp.”

“There’s no tension or blood here, just nature.”

“…I’ve only felt this safe one time since I left home.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Well, there’s nothing that wants to kill me here, I feel… safe, you know?”

“And…uh…the other time..”

Tarquin started blushing heavily, and he tried to hide it in his shirt.

“T-that was when I was talking with Nat.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

(so he has feelings for her after all…)(edited)

“You never know when something wants to kill you until it tries.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“A while back I was attacked by a bear.”

“We wrestled a bit.”

“Now we fish together”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin chuckled. “I’m not surprised you wrestled a bear with your strength, but you FISH with it?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Sure, why wouldn’t I?”

“I fish, bear likes fish.”

“Everybody wins”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm, you have a point. Still, now that you said that, I can’t stop imagining a bear with a fishing rod.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Hah, that’s a funny image.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin laughs. “Heh, yeah.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Hmm, now I’m in the mood for fish tonight.”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hey, how about we go fishing together?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Sure, you got a rod?”

@ColdToiletSeat ((any day now))

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Here, I’ll go get mine, hold up.”

Then he ran to his room.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya was simply meandering around, kicking up dirt and doing anything to sate her boredom.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh hey, Nat!”

“Bye Nat!”

Tarquin kept on running to his room.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Huh?” she muttered as she snapped out of her trance, I swear I just heard Tarquin or someone nearby

She proceeded onwards, noticing something in the corner of her vision, she turned to see Beman. Right in front of her.

She jumped in her boots before uttering “O-oh hi Beman! Didn’t notice you there!”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh, Hey Natanya.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin ran back and saw Nat and Beman together.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

birds fly away

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh, hey guys! I got my fishing rod!”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh we’re going fishing, wanna join?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Yeah, it’ll be fun!”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Uh, sure.” she replied, looking at the two of them

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Let’s go, there’s a river bank nearby. Follow me”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright!” Tarquin followed Beman to the river bank.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

suddenly a bear appears, but it appears docile.

*it follows Beman, paying little attention to Nat and Tar

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya’s eye widens in surprise at the sudden appearance of said bear

“U-uh…” Natanya trailed off, dumbfounded and scared

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Uh, is this that bear you were talking about, Bem?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Hm? Oh yeah, Tar and Nat, this is Gruh, Gruh, Tarquin and Natanya.”(edited)

“When I asked for his name, that’s the sound he made so I stuck with it”

“Gruuh.”

((That’s the bear)

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm, interesting. I like it!”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

the group arrives at the fishing spot

gruh runs into the water and fishes as bears normally would(edited)

Beman pulls his rod out of his bag, and begins fishing

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin puts some bait on the hook of his fishing rod…except he doesnt have any.

“Hey, uh, Bem? You have any bait?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh you don’t have bait?”

Beman digs out some dirt nearby with his hand

and unearths a bunch of worms

“Here ya go.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya simply sat back while the both of them went to work

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hey, thanks!”

Tarquin saw Nat sitting there, and said, “Hey, Nat, wanna come fish with me?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“I guess I could, never really could get the hang of it though”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright, here just grab on.”

Tarquin cast the line into the water and waited for a fish.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Wildlife regathers around Beman

Birds use his head a nest

Other animals use his shade to nap

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright, now we wait for a fish, Nat.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya stared with intent as the line was casted out, waiting for the fish to come. She simply nodded at Tarquin’s statement

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“OOF!” Tarquin felt a strong pull on the line.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

gruh has caught a couple fish with his mouth and placed them beside Beman

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright Nat, we got one! We just gotta keep pulling back as hard as you can!”

Tarquin started pulling back with all his force.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya’s eye narrowed as she saw the fish catch on the line. Heeding his instruction, she grabbed onto the fishing rod and backpedaled, digging her heels into the ground in order to pull back the line

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oooh.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Suddenly, a huge forced was on the line, pulling both Nat and Tarq into the river.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman watches for a bit before going back to fishing

“Oh my”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

It turns out Gruh was eating the fish on their line.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

*Gruh hurries over and picks up the two from the water *

He grunts apologetically

He carries them over to the river bank

“You Okay?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin’s face was covered was covered by his drenched hair, but there was a bit of blood trickling down his face. He was knocked out cold.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh my”

“We should get you back to the camp.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya let out a scream before hitting the water, she had hit the river bed but turned to her side to cushion the fall. A second later she stood up in the water mostly unscathed.(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin slumped agaist the tree, unmoving.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“You okay Nat?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Yeah, I’m fine, It’s Tarquin you should be worried about”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Yeah…”

“Sorry Gruh, but we’re gonna have to leave early.”

Gruh takes half the fish and waves goodbye

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Meanwhile, in the sick bay, Bedivere is mind-numbingly bored. Due to the fact he hasn’t shown any symptoms of illness for a day, he is considering discharging himself.

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev comes to visit Bedivere again. “Hey Bed, how are you feeling?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman takes the other half, and carries Tar back to the camp

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is startled yet again. “You know Mev, maybe you should try and make your presence more obvious before surprising people. Anyway, I’m SO bored.”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Haha, saying in bed for a day will do that to you. About what I was proposing about yesterday, do you want to spar?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya follows Beman, her clothes completely soaked

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere considers this. He’s far less stressed than he was when he last sparred, so it’s probably fine. “Uh, sure, but… I don’t have Corian’s permission to leave yet. And I think he knows best for me..”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

they arrive at the sick bay

“Yo we need a medic”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev places his hand against his forehead. (Dear gods, not another injured.)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Is that… Tarquin? Welp, sorry Corian. I’m pretty sure I’m fine now.” Bedivere leaps out of bed. “Look, just get him into a bed, and put bandages wherever he’s bleeding. I need to do something.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Sure”

Beman looks around for bandages

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“I’ll go with you Bedi.” The two exit the tent.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere walks out if the tent. “Uhh, Mev, I just wanna change into my proper armour back at my tent. This is kinda… windy.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Oh Nat, we should get you changed, you’re gonna catch a cold like that.”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Oh, sure. Are well still going to spar?” Mev looks insistent.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Wow, you’re really desperate for revenge after that bet, huh?” Bedivere laughs heartily. It occurs to him how much he’s done that lately… “Just kidding. I’ll definitely spar with you today, just maybe not for an hour or two. I wanna make sure Tarq’s OK.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere runs off to his tent.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman grabs a change of clothes from his bag

“Not sure if it’ll be too big on you…”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev watches Bed leave. (I knew it, he’s too nice to kill a teammate. Now I just need to prove it.) He walks off the the training grounds and gets ready for the fight.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is changing. It may take him a few minutes because the narrator is hungry.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“I think it’ll fit well enough, thank you” Natanya said warmly

Accepting the change of clothes from the other knight, she quickly made her way into a separate room to change.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

meanwhile, a cleric appeared and began treating Tar

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin could feel the healing through his body. He started to regain concsiousness and started open his eyes… well, the eye that wasnt bandaged over, at least.(edited)

Zeraion- 04/02/2016

Quarender wanders through camp, aimlessly practising sword forms. Looking at his companions running about energetically, injuring each other in their overenthusiasm..

It fills him with DETERMINATION

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman leaves after making sure tar and nat are fine and well to begin preparing the fish for dinner

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Uugh…. Wha…Where am I?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

The shirt’s a bit tight, but the pants are wonderful Natanya thought, patting down the new clothes she was wearing, grabbing a cloth to dry her hair with

Walking back into the room where Tarquin is at, Natanya was delighted to know that he’s finally conscious

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is finally finished changing. He walks out of the tent comfortably. “Man, sometimes I think that I’ve broken some ancient law that makes socks hate you…”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm? Oh, hi Nat! Uh, mind telling me where we are right now?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“We’re in the sickbay right now, you hit your head on a rock after we got pulled into the river”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh, I guess that’s how I got this bandage on my eye.”

“Hey, are you fine? You feel in too, right?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Yeah, I’m alright, but I’m more concerned about how you’re doing”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“I’ll be fine. I think I hit my head and scraped my eye, but I’ll be fine.”

“That bear was a lot stronger than I thought it would be.”

Suddenly, some blood starting coming down from Tarq’s face.

“Uh oh, thats not good.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya’s eye widened in surprise at the sudden bleeding

she quickly approached him with her drying cloth and took the initiative to start cleaning his face.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarq started to blush a little and said, “H-hey, thanks.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Not a problem” she replied, giving him a smile

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin then tried to stand up, but felt an immediate pain in his whole body and started to collapse.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya noticed him start to fall, she reactively dove to catch him and put him back on the bed

“Oh no you don’t”

“I guess there’s more to your injuries than that”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Ugh, I’ll b-be f-fine.”

Tarquin tried to stand up again.

…but failed.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

Natanya stifled a chuckle before it could escape and proceeded to force him back onto the bed. “I’m serious. You need to rest”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere comes to the sick bay, partially looking for Mev, partially wondering about Tarquin “Hello? Anyone here?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Hi Bedivere” she greeted, directing her attention away from Tarquin

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Taquin sat in the bed. “H-hey, Bed.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Well. This is awkward. What to say…? “Hello there, Tarq! Hey, Natanya. Sorry about the other night. That wyvern did bad stuff to me, and I had to go home.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“So, what brings you here, Bed?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Uhh, Mev wanted to spar with me, but I can’t find him.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora wakes up her muscles are aching but she is determined to train with Mev

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh, I haven’t seen him lately, have you Nat?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/02/2016

“Yeah, I haven’t seen him either” she said, standing up to meet Bedi at eye level

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora walks out of bed and gets her shirt and pants on

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere considers what to do now. “Well, I guess I’ll just stay here. So, Tarquin, how’d you end up here?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm, well Beman, Nat, and I were fishing.”

“And Beman’s bear friend was there.”

“So Nat and I were using the same line.”

“And we got a fish.”

“But then the bear got a hold of it and yanked us in.”

“I dont remember anything from there.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Walking past Nat,Bed and Tarq she goes to the training ground

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh? Hey, Nora!”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Yawn Too early dont respond

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is utterly confused by this statement. “Beman’s… bear friend?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“I’m… not really sure how it happened, but it had something to do with them fishing.”

“Anyways, how’re you, Bed?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere tries to find a cunning way to imply forgiveness, but can’t. “I’m great! Now that I’m out of here, I can go back to my hobbies and training.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin hesitated and looked down. “Did… did you hear me this morning?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is not willing to discuss this matter with Natanya in the room. “I don’t know what you’re talking about. Anyway, I’m gonna go look for Mev and Cross. Buh-bye!”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

sigh (I just want you to forgive me. I know I did some bad stuff, I just want a second chance.)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

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

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

God, why does everyone in this damn camp have a tragic past they want to share. I can’t deal with it!

“S-so I guess our spar is cancelled?”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Sorry Bedi, it’ll have to be tomorrow. Cross is gonna take me back.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

*Beman puts Mev on Cross’s back

“Bedi, if you want a partner, I’m up for a spar.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“I’ll look over him…”

What are you going to do?

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Nora, I did offer you a ride when we first met. How about it? You wanna hop on?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“A-alright..”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev pulls Nora up Cross, and the two take off.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Thanks.”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“So bedi, about that spar…”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

In the air, Mev looks at the horizon. “It’s always so nice to flew around. The very is gorgeous. What do you think?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora looks absent “It looks nice”

“Really nice”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“I always come up here to think. Something about the air clears my head.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Wish you could say the same

“It’s calming”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Yeah. There’s nothing here but your thoughts and the clouds.”

Though there isn’t a lot of room, Mev turns around.

“What do you want to hear first?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Oooooh thoughts whatch- “Your master… He seems like someone you loved, Please tell me more”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“He…I met him twice. the first time I met him, he was trying to get his weapon repaired in Dakbery. He saw me playing outside with one of my father’s spear. On the second day, he was so mad about how I was handling it that he came over and started yelling at me.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is busy looking at Nora and Mev way above him. So busy that he completely ignores Beman.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin dashes up behind Bed and says, “WHAT’RE YOU DOING.”(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev deepens his voice, making it rough and gravelly. “Do you have any idea what you’re doing! You’re gonna stab your own eye out!”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“He taught you how to fight…”

“Thats nice of him”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman shrugs and goes back to his workout.

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Taught me how to fight might be too generous. He just made sure I wasn’t dangerous to the kids around me. I was 10, and really stupid.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Everyone makes bad decisions when there young”

“Don’t be hard on yourself”(edited)

“At least you didn’-“

Do you really trust him?

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Oh? Hey, Beman! Wanna have a spar?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“You know what never mind”

“I got to ask a question”

“You get one”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Huh? Did someone call me?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

((In combat grounds

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Another back and forth huh? Let me think.” Mev recalls by something Nora said earlier. “What did you mean by “You just want to talk to him one more time?””

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“I just wanted to know if you wanted to see him again…” Nice save(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Fair enough. Is that you’re next question?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Yes”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“It’s been along time since I’ve thought about how he disappeared. Sometimes things he told me or techniques he taught me would pass by, but never his face.”

“I wouldn’t want to see him just yet though.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is still staring at the orange tinted sky, and the wyvern flying across it. He wonders how his parents and sister are doing back in Mategaus. Maybe he’ll get to visit them?

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“When did he disappear?”(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“After a year or so of training Cross and me, he took a job in the city. He never came back.”

“We waited months, but at some point, we realized that we’d never see him again.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“You should keep searching…. any questions for me?”(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev smiles sadly. “You have to be willing to tell me first.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“tell you what?” Please…Don’t….

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

You know Bedi, everything’s gonna be OK. You’ve got friends here, and a family waiting at home. Don’t give up now. You have to keep going. For Maya. And for everyone here. They’re all relying on you, like you’re relying on them. … Bedivere walked back to his tent to continue reading.

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“That’s fine then.” Mev turns around. “I hate three kinds of people the most. First is cruel bandits. Second is greedy merchants.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“And the third?”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“The third…is straight-faced liars.”

“I love talking to you, you make me feel like I can tell you anything.”(edited)

“I guess you didn’t feel the same.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“N-no… i just…. I can’t… I”

Sniff(edited)

“I..”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“It’s fine.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Cmon sis you gotta tell someone

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“If you don’t want to talk, that’s on you.”

“But do not lie to me.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Alright”

“When i said before do you miss him…”

“I lied”

“When i was 9 i…”

“Something happened”

“It’s something that I carry with me”

“No matter what happens”

“It’s always there”

You’re right i’m always here

Tarips- 04/02/2016

You can’t see the look on Mev’s face.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

You. Are. Useless.

“Shut up!”

Nora realising what she had done

“Oh…. Gods…”(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev listens, but doesn’t speak.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“I’m sorry Mev..”

Wow. You really are an idiot

“This really does leave you to your thoughts doesn’t it”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Without turning around, Mev says “Yeah. It really does.”

Mev taps Cross on the neck. “Bring is back buddy.” Cross circles down, landing in front of Nora’s tent. “I’ll see you at training tomorrow?” He smiles.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Thanks…”

“And yeah i will see you at training”

Nora enters her tent

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Once he could no longer see Nora, he drops his smile. He leans forward, wrapping his arms around Cross’s neck. “This is why we’re travelers, aren’t we. It’s just you and me again Cross.” Cross nuzzles Mev’s head, and the two go off into the woods.

Aaron- 04/02/2016

Aaron is walking through the woods when he eyes Mev through the trees.

“Hey, Mev! What’s up”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora jumps on her bed and hugs the pillow

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“…Mev? Hey! Mev!!”

Huh… He’s ignoring me… Something might’ve happened with him… Or is it just me?… No… He hasn’t even noticed me… Something had to have happened then…

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev and Cross walk past Aaron.

Aaron- 04/02/2016

Huh… Hope he’s alright… Wonder what happened…?

Aaron, pondering Mev’s attitude, decides to do some more archery training. He goes off deeper into the woods, pulls out his special training bow, and begins firing off some arrows.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere hears crying from a tent near him. Wanting to help a possible new friend, he puts his book down and leaves his tent, following the sobs.

He finds the tent the noise is coming from.

“Hello? Who’s in there? Are you OK?”(edited)

Lawls- 04/02/2016

hearing the man Nora pretends she’s asleep and stops crying

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Hello? Umm… I guess you’re OK then? Just… Uh.. Tell me if you need anything. I’ll be in the tent next to the white rock.” Bedivere is very unsure this is the right thing to do, but he abandons the crying woman anyway.

He walks back to his tent and continues reading his book.

Mappy- 04/02/2016

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

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin walked over to a river to wash off. He had multiple scratches and scrapes from the fight with Beman, and it stung to go in the river with his legs.(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere tires of waiting, and decides the woman must be fine. He heads down to the river beside camp, and notices someone. He skulks in the shadows of the dense foliage, trying to see who it is…

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Ah! Geez, that stings. I need to be more careful, I can’t keep endangering my body like this.” Tarquin keeps cleaning his wounds and doesn’t notice Bedivere.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere stays silent and hides behind a tree. What to do? If he comes out, it’ll be suspicious and potentially dangerous. If he tries to leave and is heard, it’s suspicious and definitely dangerous.

He decides to wait, and listen.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin started thinking about all that had happened so far and sighed. “God, I can’t believe all of this has happened. I like Bed, but I messed it up cause I thought he was gonna kill me! How am I gonna tell Nat that I threatened his life? She’d never like me then. What to do, what to do.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere finds it very suspicious that Tarq is saying all this to “himself.” He decides on a way to try and regain his trust. Alright, Bedivere… Time for the stupidest idea you’ve ever attempted.

Bedivere moves closer to Tarquin, using small amounts of wind magic to clear the ground in front of him. He did NOT want to step on a twig right now…

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Brr! It’s getting cold! Ah, and I’m not even close to done. Better hurry.”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere tiptoes up behind Tarquin, preparing to leg it if this goes badly… He reaches out into the river… And taps Tarquin’s shoulder.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“GAAH!” Tarquin jumps up and falls straight into the river.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Pfffttt… Ha ha ha ha ha! Bedivere falls onto the ground laughing.

“Well, there’s your…(snort) proof. If I really wanted you dead, you’d be gone right now.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Ugh… Are you sure there wasn’t less…. painful ways to make me certain?” Tarquin stood up. “Anyway, I’ve beleived you for a while, it just felt awkward to say it.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“I know you SAID that, but I didn’t believe you. I mean, you go from ” Prepare to die” to “yay friendship” in the blink of an eye? I wanted to make sure you weren’t lulling me into a false sense of security. “

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Well, despite what you might think, I’m not the type of guy to decieve. I tell it as it is. But, uh, any actual reason you came here?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere thinks. Why did he come here?

“That’s a good question. I suppose… I wanted some peace and quiet?”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

Noticing the commotion, Aaron puts his archery practice on hold and listens in from the woods, out of sight

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin thought. “Here, sit by the river with me.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere is very unhappy with this proposal, due to Tarquin’s current status. “Umm, maybe, if you put some CLOTHES ON! Eugh. I only just got over my illness man, don’t traumatize me!” Bedivere laughed hysterically.

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“oh, right, one sec, I’ll go get my spares.” Tarquin walked to a nearby tree and got his spare clothes and put them on. Then, he sat on the banks of the river.

Aaron- 04/02/2016

Phew, he didn’t notice me…

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright, lets talk a little bit.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere sat by the river, careful not to get his feet wet. “Talk about what?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Well, if we’re gonna be friends, we need to know each other. We can’t just be in the dark foever.”

“Since I already poured my heart out to you, how about you tell me about you?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere feels harsh for this, but he still isn’t comfortable enough to tell his secrets. “Well… Let’s see…”

“I come from northern Mategaus. When I was 13, I moved to Bachlumya, and started studying Anima Magic. Met a lot of nice people, there including…” Bedivere pauses. “Uhh, a boy named Edmund. He was nice. Anyway, one day, not long after I graduated as a Mage, and was recognised by Bachlumya, I started to find that my temper was a problem. I’d try to use Fimbulvetr, but I’d freeze metres around me, with no control of it. I decided to abandon magic, and I took up the sword and lance. Then, I ended up here.”

((There you go. Bedivere’s backstory with all the secrets cut out.))

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm, I see. Very interesting. I’ve never seen such a drastic change in fighting style. Have you considered using physical AND magical weapons?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere considers this. “No, not really. I abandoned magic, because I couldn’t control it anymore. I didn’t just get bored of it. Although, if we found a Levin Sword or a Shockstick, I could do well with that.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Ah, yes, those. I’m sure you could do well with those.”

“Anyway, it was nice talking to you. Now, how about we talk to that man hiding in the trees?”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

!?(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin runs over and grabs Aaron and brings him over to Bed.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Excuse me?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright, buddy, mind explaining why you’re here?”(edited)

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Hey! No need to get physical.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere looks him up and down.

“Hold on, Tarquin.”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Okay, I’m sorry. I was out doing some training, and I overheard you guys.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Hm?”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Huh?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Alright, then why were you spying on us?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Alright. Who do you know in this camp? Tarquin, just..hold on.”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“I… Guess I have no real reason. I was simply curious. I had no idea that you guys would talk about such things.”

“In this camp? Not many, really.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“So, nobody can vouch for your legitimacy?”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“There’s Wolf, that cavalier…. And Nora, the archer… Romulo’s a cool guy…”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Nora?”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Yes, why?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Wolf…”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Alright. That’s enough.”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“…?”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“I believe you. What’s your name?”

Bedivere smiles gently.

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“I’m Aaron. You two are?”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

Tarquin let go of Aaron.

“The name’s Tarquin, and this is Bedivere.”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“I am Bedivere. As he said. Dangit, let me do a cool introduction!”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Well, I’m happy to meet both of you. And I apologize for spying.”

“Although, it is strange that you changed your opinion of me so suddenly… Why is that?”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“I…am still not happy about that, but whatever. Listen guys, I’m heading back to camp. It’s getting dark, and I swear I heard something. I’m gonna go.”

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“Mm, I agree. I hope Beman cooked something good for dinner!”

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

“Oh, that? I’m just… I don’t know. You seem trustworthy. If you want me to change my mind… I’ve got my sword right here.”

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“Well, I’ve got my axe here too.”

“But we can do that another time.”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere stares at him. “I need to work on my sarcasm…”

**He laughs, and runs off. “

Aaron- 04/02/2016

“That dinner does sound good, so why don’t we just focus on that?”

Aaron heads to the mess hall for dinner

DuffleBag- 04/02/2016

“That sounds like a GREAT idea! Off we go!” And Tarquin was running back to camp.

jddaepicboss- 04/02/2016

Bedivere skips supper, and just falls asleep in his tent.

Mappy- 04/02/2016

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

Tarips- 04/02/2016

After his journey through the woods, Mev returns back to the camp. Bleary-eyed, he starts a fire and begins to cook some meat over the fire. Cross surrounds Mev, comforting him.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Yawn “Is it morning yet?”

Nora looking out and seeing its dark she tries to go back to sleep

She can’t

Nora gets up out of her tent

Tarips- 04/02/2016

(This isn’t what I wanted. I would rather be talking to me, goofing around like she always does. But I’m not wrong here.) The meat is fully cooked over the fire. Mev ignores it.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Oh nice someone cooked food at least i might get mind off him if i eat.

Where is that smell coming from…

I wonder if i should say….

Tarips- 04/02/2016

The meat is half burnt by the time he picks it off the fire. Mev sighs and hands it to Cross before setting up a few more sticks of beef.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Hows that song go again…

How to find the key to unlock that door, You’ll see that maybe you could be stronger than before

A slight smile goes across her face

Wait why am i walking this way the food smells coming from over there

She walks until she find smoke

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Even next to the fire, Mev feels somewhat cold. He pulls a blanket out of his sack, and wraps it around himself.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

I’m close

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora notices the fire and a man. She can’t make out the face

Tarips- 04/02/2016

(I…I…) Mev stops thinking and grabs some of the food, chewing slowly.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“B? That you? Didn’t think you cooked meat..”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

((Im surprised you didnt notice the hulking wyvern surrounding me

Mev hears Nora speak and freezes. He simply nods in response.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Could i have this bit?” she points at the smallest one

Tarips- 04/02/2016

He nods again and turns away from Nora.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“T-thanks..”

Mev ain’t here

Nora eats as fast as possible

“Tastes… good B”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev smiles away from Nora. He poorly tries to copy Beman’s voice. “Yeah, it is.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Your voic-” The trees rustle

Is something up there?

“B is there something up there?”(edited)

“You got a better view”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman is carrying a plate of fish.

“I don’t see anything.”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

((brb

“Wait then…”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Who is that?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“I lost my glasses”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora tries to pick up the spear beside the camp fire(edited)

“What is your name!”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman squints

“Looks like a wyvern”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Huh? I don’t think its a wyvern..”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“A bear”

?

Tarips- 04/02/2016

((what part of brb is confusing

Lawls- 04/02/2016

((the b was probably

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev, panicking at Beman’s arrival, gets up and runs away.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Get… Oh don’t worry”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Hm?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora puts down the spear and tries another food item?

Tarips- 04/02/2016

NitoriBOT- 04/02/2016

Tarips- 04/02/2016

He stumbles on a branch, but quickly recovers and runs(edited)

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman sits besides Nora, opposites of where mev was sitting

((Its fried fish

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Can i have one?”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“Go for it”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora scoffs one of the down

“Thanks.”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Eventually, Mev stops running and sits against a tree. He balls up in a blanket and just sits.

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“How was the flight?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Nice, I guess”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“You guess?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“it was good”

bemoney- 04/02/2016

“That’s good”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora picks up another and tries to scoff it down but slows down

Loyal- 04/02/2016

Elsewhere… Corian is sitting on a rock by the lake, his journal in hand. His old robes have been repaired by a supplier in the camp, and he looks like his old self again. A pen glides across the surface as he collects his thoughts over the last few days. The soft sounds of wildlife and the water lapping on the shore lends him a sense of clarity. For the time being I continue to align myself with the Mategaian monarchy. Though I continue to tell myself this conflict does not concern me, I nonetheless feel… a pull of sorts. My compatriots are safe for the time being, and in good hands. They have chosen their path, and know how to walk it. There is nothing stopping me from continuing my journey and trusting that they can handle themselves, and yet… I feel compelled to stay, at least awhile longer.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

after eating the fish she picks up her bow

“I’m going after him”(edited)

“Thanks for the food”

Nora walks into the woods in hopes to find The mysterous man

Loyal- 04/02/2016

Perhaps there’s something greater at play here than I can afford to ignore. Perhaps the spark of adventure I’d so long thought extinguished has some life in it yet. Perhaps I’m not immediately ready to give up the little companionship I’ve regained. Whatever the reason, I look on my fellows, training, talking, sparring, fighting… and some small part of me longs to join them. During the last battle I found myself openly directing tactics, without hesitation. Like I were thirty years younger again. As if I’d never stopped…(edited)

bemoney- 04/02/2016

Beman eats his fish in solitude

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora hums to herself

We made a vow, a promise… Whats the lyrics after that…

Nora groans

Loyal- 04/02/2016

Then again, perhaps I’m also giving my new friends too much credit. As many times as one or more of them have shown up in my field hospital in just the last week, perhaps staying here is all I can do to keep them from getting themselves killed by a rogue tree or something. Heh.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Where are you…”

Noticing a cloth wrapped body she sneaked behind it

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev shivers, hungry and alone.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

!roll 6

NitoriBOT- 04/02/2016

@Lawls you rolled 1.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

noticing it is just a bunch of leaves she starts hunting again

Loyal- 04/02/2016

Which reminds me. My patient, Bedivere, has been discharged from sick leave despite reports that an individual by the name of Tarquin has continued to aggravate his condition. I’m still curious as to the root cause. He reported that he took a bad shot to the gut during sparring practice, but … that wouldn’t leave him bedridden for days at a time. He’s hiding something else. Perhaps an especially weak constitution, perhaps difficulties with some sort of “recreational” substance, or perhaps some malady of the soul. At any rate, it bears further investigation. If Bedivere goes back into battle without addressing his underlying troubles, he won’t last long on the battlefield.

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev looks up and sees Nora, walking around. (Did…did she come looking for me?)

Lawls- 04/02/2016

” I know you’re here just give up… I’ll find you eventually”

Nora aims her bow, realising its Mev she drops it(edited)

“M-mev?”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

He takes a step forward, but then stops. You can tell that he wants to run.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Mev.. I… I’m sorry”

“I just…”

She collapses

JUST TELL HIM(edited)

TELL HIM YOU DID IT

Loyal- 04/02/2016

All of these people, bound by no common thread save for a job they’ve undertaken… they’re ragtag, disorganized. They fight amongst each other as often as they cooperate. But at the same time, they’ve found themselves pulled into a conflict greater than they could imagine.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“I’m sorry i lied…”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

He stops, waiting for her to finish. When he sees her collapsing, he grabs her before she falls.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Thanks…”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

His face crumbles. “Nora, I’m sorry too. I just…I didn’t mean…”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora gives Mev a hug

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“I’ve been going around for so long, only talking to myself and Cross, and I just…”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Its lonely…”

“even when you have people”

“You are still alone”

Loyal- 04/02/2016

And now they all follow that common cause, come what may. Finding friendships and more despite the circumstances. And I, among them. For the time being, my duty shall be to aid them as best I can, on the battlefield or off. But … I must also make sure to keep my newfound urges in check, as well. Let this journal entry serve as a reminder to myself, of what I’ve fought to instill in myself, and what I continue to try and put behind me. May my faith guide me.

Tarips- 04/02/2016

He breaks down “I really needed someone I could trust.” In seconds he’s a sobbing mess.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“I’m so sorry I did this”

Nora tries to be strong but ends up breaking down aswell(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

And in the woods, two idiots cried their hearts out.(edited)

Loyal- 04/02/2016

Until next time.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

After a good long sob the two idiots got up

“H-Hey mind if we have another ride… My mind wasn’t in the best of places when we were up there”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“It’s pretty dark right now. Maybe a walk in the woods would be better?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“If you would like that..”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev puts out his hand “Let’s go!”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora takes his hand

“Alright lets go”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

It’s the dead of night. A waning moon is high up in the sky. The two are left with nothing but each other.

“You don’t have to tell me if you’re uncomfortable. But you didn’t have to lie.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“N-No it’s more like.. I want to tell you or I need to tell you”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“And I’ll listen when you do.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora lets out a breathe

“My brother taught me a song when he was alive”

Her eyes look away

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev squeezes Nora’s hand.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora looks to Mev

“He…. I….”

“I killed him Mev”

“It was all my fault”

Nora starts breaking down

Tarips- 04/02/2016

The two stopped, and Mev wraps his arms around Nora.

“I’m sure you didn’t mean to.” (She’s not that type of person. I know she isn’t.)

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“It…. Was all my fault…. I….. I just want to see him again Mev….”

Her hands starts shaking

“I Try to get rid of his voice.. But it still haunts me”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev picks Nora up and gives her a piggy-back ride “Tell me about him.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Sniff “Hehehe thanks Mev”

“well you know how i said alot of people do dumb stuff when they are young?”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Yep. I thought you were referring to me.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Well when i was 9 my family went to this town…”

“I can’t remember the name for the life of me”

“But me and my brothers job”

“Was to take out some of the rats in the alley”

“The royals actually gave us that job”

“They were so sweet… They gave me and my brother cookies!”

“Then later that night..”

“My mother and father had been given orders”

“To kill the royal family”

Noras breathing gets rapid

Calm down you are with Mev… Everything is fine(edited)

“And… Well…”

“I went out and warned the Royals”

“A girl my age thanked me and said she would never forget what i did”

“That morning”(edited)

“A fight broke out between the people who hired us”

“and my family”

“My family all defended… except me…”

Noras breathing gets more and more rapid

Tarips- 04/02/2016

Mev uses one of his hands to pat her head.

(Her explanations aren’t the best, but she doesn’t want to remember.)

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“He…. He went out… and…”

“He swore he would defend me with his life”

Nora starts tearing up

“I didn’t think he meant that literally”

Nora goes to Mevs neck and cries on it

Tarips- 04/02/2016

(So it wasn’t her fault. Not at all.) He remains silent as Nora cries, occasionally patting her head and giving her words of comfort.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“We.. We found his body”

“He was….. I’d rather not go into it”

“But my family”

“Defended me and my family”

“And what did i do to him?”

“I killed him.”

“He never enjoyed performing”

“He mostly enjoyed using the bow”

“and he always kept a smile on his face”

“There was one song that he loved though”

“He was teaching it to me right before he…. You know..”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“What was the last thing your brother said to you?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“… Don’t worry, I’ll keep you safe and if you get scared just close your eyes, Cover your ears and hum the songs you’ve learnt”

Nora realises she’s crying again and wipes her tears on her shirt

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“…and how did he look when he said it?”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“A smile from ear to ear…. as always”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“I’m sure he’d be happy to know that he protected his sister.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora hands shake “I…. I could of helped.. I should of… done something… anything!”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Maybe you could have. Maybe you couldn’t have. The most important thing is that you’re brother did what he wanted to do: protect his family.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora breaks down again not being able to speak and crying uncontrollable

Tarips- 04/02/2016

(There’s been enough crying to last a decade, from both sides.)

Lawls- 04/02/2016

I should try to look better for Mev(edited)

Tarips- 04/02/2016

((Not that he can see you right now

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Mustering up the courage to hold back tears and speak again

“Mind if i sing what he taught me?”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“How about you teach it to me? So we can sing it together.”

Lawls- 04/02/2016

Nora laughs “That would be really fun”

“I really want to teach you it now but…”

“its getting late”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Of course. And we’re off.” Mev runs back to camp with Nora on his back.

Lawls- 04/02/2016

“Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”

Tarips- 04/02/2016

“Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”

((eyeballed the length, got it first try!))

Combat Zone

Lawls-04/02/2016

Waiting on Mev she sits down

She starts singing

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman enters the area, looking for something to do

Lawls-04/02/2016

“With me our son- Oh hey Beman”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Hey Nora.”

“Doing more training?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Yawn “yeah…. Did you hear my singing?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev does not notice the two enter, and continues running drills with Cross.

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Yep, Oh Hey Mev.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Oh hello Mev”(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev does not notice their greeting, as training a wyvern is intense business

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Guess he can’t hear us.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Why wont he notice us….

“Oh guess not”

“Hmmmm maybe if i throw this rock…”

bemoney-04/02/2016

((Depends on who you’re talking to))

Tarips-04/02/2016

((throw the rock))

((do it))

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Hyuh!” she throws the pebble at mevs shoulder(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

Cross recognizes that his rider is being targeted and blocks the attack. “Huh? What’s? Oh, hey you two, when did you get here?”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Nice aim”

“Before you”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“I am an archer”

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman starts walking over

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Thank you”

starts walking

Tarips-04/02/2016

(What do you mean before me? I’ve been here for hours!) “Sorry for not realizing. Nora, are you sure you’re up for training?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Nice block cross!”

“I have been here for awhile… So i know i’m ready”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere arrives, looking for Mev. “Mev? Mee-eev? Hey! Mev! There you are!”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev waves at Bedi “Hey! It looks like our spar is being postponed, Nora and I have training first.” Mev looks at Nora. “I’m going to change into some fresh clothes, you start with your stretches.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

“Alright.”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Hm, I can train Nora, and you two can have your spar.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora stretches… They’re getting better(edited)

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere walks over to Nora and Beman. “Hey there. I saw you two a couple days ago, but I never asked your names.”

“You know, when I..got ill.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Oh woops, i’m Nora pleased to meet you”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Oh, I’m Beman.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

“Great. I’m Bedivere, and I’m a Cavalier. What weapons do you two use?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

She finishes her stretches

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Lance and shield”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Bow and Song” Nora laughs

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere chuckles too. “So, you like music? Me too. I wouldn’t mind learning to use a bow, but the lance and sword are tough enough.”

Especially seeing as I’ve barely started using them…

Lawls-04/02/2016

Noras eyes sparkle(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev returns with Cross, wearing a plain shirt and loose fitting pants. He waits just outside the training grounds for the three to finish their conversation.

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Do you play anything!?”

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman goes off to do his own workouts.

“If I’m needed just call.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere immediately notices her sudden enthusiasm and smiles. “I once learned the piano, but I’ve kind of lost that. I can play the tin whistle, but I prefer to sing.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Another singer! we should so do a duet some time!”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere thinks of how nervous he would be, but decides to ignore that. “Maybe we should. Anyway, my keen musical ears hear the out of tune roar of a wyvern outside, so you’d better prepare yourself. I hope I see you again, Nora.”

Bedivere waves and walks off.

Lawls-04/02/2016

‘See you bedi”

Noticing Mev “I’m ready”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev walks by Bedi. “Sorry, we’ll be done in an hour or so.”

He continues to Nora and smiles “Looks like you two had a nice conversation.”(edited)

Lawls-04/02/2016

((beman left

bemoney-04/02/2016

((Kinda, he’s in the area doing his ownnthing

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Bed is a singer mev!”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Is he? That’s so cool! Do you think we’ll get to hear him?”(edited)

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Hopefully!”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Okay, let’s start training. Did you do your stretches properly?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Yep!”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“We’re gonna start with 3 laps around the arena, to see how you’re holding up. Let’s go!”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Nora starts running to try to keep up with Mev*

!roll 6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@Lawls you rolled 4.

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora feels like shes going to trip but adjusts her legs so she doesn’t

“How many laps has it been?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Only 1.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora groans “Whats this gotta do with sword training again????”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev speaks in a practiced tone. “A strong body is a strong mind. And you need both to fight.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Can’t i just i don’t know”(edited)

“Just swing a sword around”

“This is way to much work for me…..”

Lazy nora is lazy

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Only… if you want to get stabbed…”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“That… Doesn’t sound fun”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Right…training is a must…” The two complete their second lap.

“When I think you’re ready…will practice swings…”

The last 3 hours of training are catching up to him.

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora notices he’s getting tired “You should practice what you preach”

bemoney-04/02/2016

(Oh snap)

Tarips-04/02/2016

“That’s why I train…even though I haven’t seen him…in so long.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Oh shit…

“Oh fuck..That wasn’t… I didn’t…”

Nora just shut the fuck up

Tarips-04/02/2016

“It’s fine…just memories…” They finish their third lap.

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Now?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Same as yesterday. Push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, and some squats.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“We didn’t do squats yesterday”

“Adding something new huh?”

Nora gets on the ground and begins to do push ups(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev drops and does push-ups with Nora. “It was a suggestion Beman gave me. And stick to 20 this time.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora nods

Nora keeps quite

She keeps doing push ups til mev tells her to stop

Tarips-04/02/2016

Once Mev reaches 20, he stops. “How many have you done?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“15”

“I think..”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“That’s fine, you can stop early if you need to.”

“Don’t push yourself too far like yesterday. There won’t always be a priest at the ready.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Alright”

She starts doing jumping jacks

Tarips-04/02/2016

Taking a shot break, Mev watches Nora go through the excercise. (She should be ready in a few days. How am I going to teach her how to swing?)

Lawls-04/02/2016

“100”

She goes down and does sit-ups

“How many again?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev laughs to himself. “100 was correct, but you skipped sit-ups.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“How many sit ups?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“It was 50 I think.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Alright”(edited)

She does the sit-ups

On each raise she trys to speak

“I”

“Am”

“Sorry”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“I told you, it’s fine. It’s just been a long time since I’ve thought about my master.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“I

“Still”

“Feel”

“guilty”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“I…I miss him.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“50”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev tries to speak, but his voice won’t come out.

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora gets up immediately and hugs Mev

“I… Know you do…”

Not… Your… Fault…

Was….Your…. Fault…

Noras grip gets tighter and tighter

“You… Just want one more talk with him… Don’t you?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

Mev hugs Nora back and doesn’t speak. After a few moments he lets go. Tears are welling up in his eyes, but he’s smiling. “He would have killed me if I interrupted training. I’ll tell you about him later.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Fair enough”

“Now for the new training”

“How do i begin?”

It was your fault Nora(edited)

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere was walking by the training grounds, and noticed the two hugging. He decides to stay away for now.

Tarips-04/02/2016

“It’s…it’s squats. Just squats. We should do 50 or so.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora begins her squats

Why did you do it?

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora begins humming in a forceful way(edited)

“45….”

“Can we stop…”

Tarips-04/02/2016

In the middle of squats, Mev closes he eyes, remembering his master. “Do you call those squats! You have to drop down lower. Give it your all! No, not like that. Start over! We’ll keep exercising until you do it right!”

“Yeah, you can stop. I need to keep going.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“A-Alright”

“I’ll wait for you”

Nora sits down on the arena seats

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman finishes his push ups and moves onto squats

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora humming gets louder and louder

I thought you loved me….

Nora clenches her fists

Tarips-04/02/2016

“That’s better. You have to make sure it hurts! That’s it for today, come inside and we’ll have some tea. I might have some good leaves somewhere.” “You have to try to bit harder than that to hit me! Do I need to send you back to the basics?! We’re doing squats right now!” “You’ve almost-“

Mev’s legs give, and he falls over.

Lawls-04/02/2016

You hated m-

“Mev!”

Nora runs over to Mev..

“Oh my… Are you alright…

“Please…”

“Anyone please!”(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

“I’m fine.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Tears are in Noras eyes

Tarips-04/02/2016

“No need to yell, my legs are just tired.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere hears someone cry from the battle grounds. He runs over to the grounds and notices someone on the ground.

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Please… Don’t do that ever again”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

“Hello? Does someone need help?”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“You scared the hell out of me…”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

“Is that… Mev?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Nora, please. It’s just some exercising. I’ll be fine in the morning.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere runs to their side.

“Mev! Nora! What happened?”

Tarips-04/02/2016

“What have I told you over and over! Stop pushing yourself so hard!” “It’s fine, I know my limits.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

this wouldn’t of happened if you just kept your mouth shut

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Hey Bedi, I’m fine. Just fell over from too much exercise, that’s all.”

“I’ll be more careful next time.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

“I’m sorry…”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere furrows his brow, suspicious. “Well, if you’re sure?

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman stops his workout to check on the others

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Look, I’m fine! I-” “Let me check up on you. You might have gotten-.” “I just need some help up.”

Lawls-04/02/2016

Nora tries to help him up

“I might need help.”(edited)

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman lifts Mev with ease

Lawls-04/02/2016

“Thanks…”

Couldn’t even do that(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

“Thanks you two. Cross, I need you buddy.” Cross comes over, concerned, and licks Mev’s face. He laughs “Cross needs to-” “You remember him, don’t you? Master.”

jddaepicboss-04/02/2016

Bedivere stands there, listening to Mev.

God, why does everyone in this damn camp have a tragic past they want to share. I can’t deal with it!(edited)

Tarips-04/02/2016

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

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman picks up his armour and starts running laps with it on his back

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Oh! Hey, Bem! Wanna spar?”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Hm? Sure.”

Beman stops running, and drops his armour, creating a powerful thud.

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Woah.”

“Alright, but go easy! I still havent got this bandage off yet.”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Then instead of weapons, why not hand to hand combat?”

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Hand-to-Hand? Hm, if you insist. That’d actually be pretty fun!”

Tarquin threw his axe sheath onto the groud.

“Alright, let’s do this!”

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman removes his glasses

“Bring it”

he raises his arms as a boxer would

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

((1-2 for you, 3-4 draw, 5-6 me))

bemoney-04/02/2016

((Gotcha

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

Tarquin starts running towards Beman and balls up a fist.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 6 for a total of 6.

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

Tarquin blocks some of Beman’s counter-strikes and punches him in the gut, sending him back.

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman pivots his foot and goes in with a good ol’ one-two

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@bemoney you rolled 2 for a total of 2.

bemoney-04/02/2016

his first jab worked as a decoy to make Tar block his head while Beman got a solid punch at his gut

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Ack!” Tarquin coughed up a bit of blood and spit it on the ground.

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Woah, you okay?”

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Y-yeah, fine. GET READY!”

Tarquin charged towards Beman, moving left and right to try and fake him out.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 3 for a total of 3.

bemoney-04/02/2016

((First to 3 btw

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

((i know))

Tarquin goes left put spins and kicks right, just in time to be blocked by Beman’s arm.

He then jumped back and got in position.

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman blocks the hit and ducks in for more jabs, followed by a hard hook.

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@bemoney you rolled 5 for a total of 5.

bemoney-04/02/2016

((You write this

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

Tarquin predicts the hook and grabs Beman’s arm. He uses all his strength and flings him to the other side of the battlefield.

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman tucks and rolls, standing up after he slowed down.

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“You’re on your last legs, Bem! Time to finish this!”

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@DuffleBag you rolled 3 for a total of 3.

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

Tarq runs up and sends a barrage of punches towards Bem, but he blocks them all, and Tarquin stpes back, preparing himself.(edited)

bemoney-04/02/2016

Tar was right, Beman was exhausted from the workout he was just doing, this next hit will have to be it.

((Let’s just make it 1-3 and 4-6 I gtg soon

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

((okay, next hit wins?))

bemoney-04/02/2016

he ducks under again, throwing rapid punches, but instead of a hook, he finishes with a leaping roundhouse kick

!roll 1d6

NitoriBOT-04/02/2016

@bemoney you rolled 3 for a total of 3.

bemoney-04/02/2016

Tar got into the habit of preparing for the hook, that he wasn’t prepared for the powerful kick that beman did.

Beman lands on the ground and rolls into his back

“Don’t know about you…. But I’m done.”

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Augh!” Tarquin flew backwards and landed hard on his back.

Blood flew out of his mouth when he landed, and he sat there, bleeding.

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Ah sugar.”

“Hey, you alright there?”

Beman gets up and walks over to Tar

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“U…….Ugh….”

“G…..Guess…. I wasnt in the best of shapes for this, huh?”

“But… I c-cant move myself

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Oh boy”

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“H-here, wait.”

“I got this.”

Tarquin shook as he stood up, but he eventually got there.

“Alright, I…I need to get to my room. I have some vulneraries there. C-can you help me?”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“Here, give me your arm.*

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

Tarquin extended his non-bloodied arm to Beman.

bemoney-04/02/2016

Beman puts Tar’s shoulder over his back and helped him to his tent

DuffleBag-04/02/2016

“Heh, thanks, B-bem.”

When Tarquin reached his room, his applied some bandages to certain areas and drank a vulnerary.

“Ah! Much better! Thanks a lot, Beman! Couldn’t have done it without you!”

bemoney-04/02/2016

“No problem”
