Bedivere wakes up, feeling icky. His stomach is in some pain, so he decides to stay in bed for now.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya gets up, not feeling too bad. Maybe I’ll do some shield practice today… she thinks as she braids her hair(edited)

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman is about to start his daily workout, but his head is pounding from yesterday’s incident

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Slinging her shield and a practice lance over her shoulder, Natanya makes her way over to the training field, doing basic arm stretches as she’s walking

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Morning”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“G’morning”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin gets out of bed and starts stretching.

He gets dressed and starts to head out to the training ground.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman begins his workout. As of recent, he’s added more weight than his armour. He begins with normal sit ups to get started

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

He sees Beman and Natanya at the training ground and runs up to them.(edited)

“Morning guys.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Mornin'”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Finishing the rest of her stretching, Natanya looks over at Tarquin “Hey Tarquin”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin starts to stretch and get ready for the day.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya stepped closer to Tarquin, an idea in her mind “So… I hope you don’t mind, but would it be alright if we trained together?”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Hm? Yeah, no problem! I just need to get ready.”

Tarquin finishes the rest and of his stretches.

“Alright, let’s do this!”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Sounds good,” she smiled, picking up her practice lance and shield “So, did you wanna do anything else before we start?”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Not if you don’t, I’m ready!” He pulls out his practice axe.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit walked through the camp toward the mess hall, an empty mail bag strapped to her shoulders. She pulls the hat off her head and wipes her forehead with the back of her hand.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Wolf, chilling at the mess hall, spots Rabbit walking towards the building ((tent?)). He gets up and greet her, “Hello Rabbit, what are you up to today?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Oh! Hello, Mister Wolf. I just finished with a new job here at camp today. I’ve been delivering letters for a bit of pay.” She smiles at the man as she peers around looking for his dog.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Sounds like something productive for you to do. Its helps everyone, y’know?” he pauses and Zeus comes running out from a table and jumps around for a bit, excited.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Ah, there you are! I was wondering where you ran off to.” She kneels down and extends a hand toward the dog. “Yup. I do a lot of running around anyways, too.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He laughs, “Excited to see people, as always. Hm.. I believe I made a promise with you, do you remember what it is?” he askes after a pause.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

As she’s playing with Zeus, “You promised to take me to the forest! Beman tried, but I think he was too tired to do much or something.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Ah, well, thats Beman for you, always finding something to mess up. He’s a nice guy though. Anyway… what are you doing now that you’re done with your work for the day?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Nothing. Not yet, anyways. Could we go to the forest today, Mister Wolf?”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Today? Sure, I don’t see why not. Is there anything you need before we go?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Umm. What all would we need for it? I can’t think of anything I need to bring.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“I dunno, water, a bag for stuff you want to carry or pick up..,” looks at Zeus, “I need to bring stuff for him, thankfully I always carry that kinda stuff around.”(edited)

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She thinks for a moment. “I don’t have a lot of stuff to carry that I don’t already have. So just water and we’ll be okay?”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yup, I have some though, probably enough.” He pulls out a pouch with some stuff in it, “Yep, its enough. We can go now, if you’re ready.” he puts the pouch back

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Giving Zeus one last ruffle of his head, she stands back up, “I’m ready then. Let’s go to the forest! For real this time.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Okay then, this way is probably the best,” he said facing towards the direction with the rive in the forest, “this is the way I know best. We better get going.” He starts to head in thar direction, and Zeus follows.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She gives Wolf a nod before calling out to the cook, “If anyone asks, we’re going to the forest, Miss Cook!” Hoping the woman had heard her, she turns around and runs to catch up with Wolf.

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Pan peeks through the kitchen window and nods.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Okay, so, is there anything you wanna see for sure while we’re out?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Most of the books I’ve read just talk about how pretty the forest can be when it’s not busy being scary. I know there’s a lot of animals in there, but I don’t know what all is in this forest.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Pretty huh? I bet I know a place to show her. “Well, the forest is full of lots of things, Rabbit. I know of some things you may want to see, if you have no idea. We’ll see alot on the way there too.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Sure thing!” She followed behind the man, her eyes tracking Zeus. Maybe I can get Zeus to be a friend to me for next time…

Mappy- 04/13/2016

And with that, they came up to where there started to be more and more trees. “So here we are. Seems like a good day for seeing the animals, I can already see a few,” he said, pointing to a figure in the distance

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Tilting her head away from Zeus to the direction Wolf was pointing, she strained her eyes, “You can?” She spots a bush rustling. The wind? A critter?

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yep, and you’re looking right at it.” the bush rsutles some more, “Its eating, I think. It’ll move soon. If we’re quiet and fast, we could probably see it before it runs.This way,” he walked not towards it, but at angle.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Meanwhile in the woods, Romulo was sitting down somewhere, relaxing… if you wanna call it that “Never again, never again, never again…”, Romulo mumbled kind of madly as he attempted to relax

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Her eyes fixate on the bush as she follows the man, occasionally shifting to make sure where she was stepping.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“… is there something in the bushes?”, Romulo yawned, clearly needing a bit more sleep

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Wolf seemed concentrated… “I hear something else. Its gonna run before we get a chance. We have to hurry,” he whispered

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

As Romulo stood up, he saw two familiar figues walking towards him A small one and a tall one in compariosn… maybe I should approach them…

“Hey!”, Romulo called out to the two figures

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

The sudden voice startles Rabbit, “Ack! I thought you said it was an animal Wo-… Mister Wolf.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Nah, thats Romulo, and hes behind us.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Hello!”

“So that wasn’t just me that heard that animal”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

The animal in the other direction ran off in a non-visible direction

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Ah son of a-“

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She faces the man with a frown, “You again. Why’d you scare it off, for!”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Oh so she doesn’t like him?

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Sorry”, Romulo rubbed his head, “I’m not in the right state at mind at the moment…”

“What? I’m tired”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“You can’t just go yelling at people sneaking around like that, you buff-” She stops herself and let’s out a low growl. “I could have seen a wild animal!”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Its okay Rabbit, we’ll see more.”

“Anyways, Romulo, that was a little rude to sneak up on us, you scared her.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I wasn’t sneaking around actually… I was trying to take a short nap. Then I heard a bunch of squirrels”

I think one even walked over me

“Yeah, sorry”, Romulo genuinely apologized to the two for the second time

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Squirrels! I could have seen squirrels! Couldn’t you have just… I don’t know, waited?” She crosses her arms and turns around, “Maaan. We don’t even know if we’ll get to see them again.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Rabbit, I doubt those were squirrels, but please calm down, Its alright, he apologized”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

… Was she this sheltered?, Romulo thought curiously as a voice passed through his mind

“Ello little brother”, called out to him

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She let’s out a sigh, “I still wanted to see them…”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Sam, stop doing that please…., Romulo sighed, it gives me the hibby jibbies man

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Its alright Romulo, just be carefuller next time. Anyways, we’ll be off now, I’ll see you later. Lets go Rabbit, I can assure you we’ll see squirrels”(edited)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“It’s fin-“, Romulo said as he saw something in the corner of his eye

Son of a…. he’s actually here…, Romulo looked straight at the tree, seeing a figure in yellowish robes hiding behind it

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She glances towards Romulo and narrows her eyes for a moment before turning back towards Wolf with a faint smile, “Okay, I guess it’ll be okay.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

they walk off past Romulo.

Wolf then notices something in a tree, “Hey Rabbit, look,” he points

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo runs past Rabbit and Wolf, towards the robed figure “You…”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She follows Wolf’s finger as Romulo runs by, a frown on her face as he stomps through the ground, unknowing of what he was doing.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

[???] “Oh! I feel so sad! Weren’t you looking forward to meeting me?”, the older man teases Romulo casually, and in a sibling like manner

“…Why are you even here? I thought you had something to do in Thrandia?”

[???]”Well that’s why I’m here”, the older man twirls a wand like object in his hand

“Explain yourself Sam”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Hearing Romulo speaking with someone – and especially the name ‘Sam’, she quickly turns to Wolf, “Can we go? I’d really like to go!” She looks worried, excessively so almost.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

[Samuel}”Well you see, I was supposed to meet up with our good ol butt buddy, Angelo and well…,” Samuel cleared his throught, “he didn’t show up in our meeting place”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Is Romulo okay? I can hear him “I think we should. I think we should quickly. Follow me.” They start running off in the opposite direction

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I don’t know where he is dude,” Romulo yawned casually, “I haven’t seen him since I left to search for Neo”

[Samuel]”Oh yeah… THAT…”, Samuel grimly replied, seeming depressed, “how’s your progress?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit follows on the man’s heels, occasionally speeding up ahead of him.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

[Romulo]”Within the span of 3 years, I’ve only gotten a lead here in Mategaus and I got involved in a little… war I guess”

[Samuel]”Ah…”, for a second Romulo could swear he saw Samuel shed a tear, “well I gotta go now before I get late. Ta ta”

Samuel runs off fast in the distance, in the opposite direction of Rabbit and Wolf to his destination

Mappy- 04/13/2016

After a few minutes, Wolf directs her, “We should be good now. Whatever he’s doing, I think it’ll be dangerous. Anyway, I think we can keep going safely now.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Like running would get him to Thrandia any faster than walking…

Romulo sighed as he began to think on his current situation

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Whatever has spooked Rabbit, she still looks scared. She keeps her eyes on the direction they came from.(edited)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Might as well…, Romulo sighed as he continue to walk through the forest, ignoring the surprise appearence that his brother, Samuel made

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He can tell something’s wrong “You okay? I know that was probably a rush and really sudden, but its over now, we’ll be fine.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“No progress within 3 years…”, Romulo muttered under his breath, wondering what Samuel was going to do in Thrandia

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She pulls away from Wolf, her breathing heavy. She takes a few moments before nodding, “Y-yeah. I’m okay. Could we… Could we go through the forest that way and get to wherever you wanted to go?” She points in a direction, any direction.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo walked briskly in the opposite direction of his brother. The two people that went ahead of him could probably see him in the distance. Where the hell did you go off to, Neo? Are you dead? Did you get amnesia?(edited)

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Uh, sure we can…” Is she okay? She seems really worried. “Its this way”(edited)

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Her eyes stayed on the direction they came from, no longer paying attention to where she was stepping. Rabbit speaks almost in a whisper, “Thanks.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“…No problem. Romulo’s kinda odd, huh. Always talking to himself..,” Wolf thinks back to the several times he’s heard Romulo talk to himself, and then looks around for something to distract Rabbit

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

I really need more sleep… Romulo thought tiredly as he continue walking, trying to not reminiscence over the last time he saw his eldest brother in person

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She opens her mouth as if to say something before simply nodding, finally comfortable enough to look back to where they were going, “Y-yeah. He’s… weird.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo ignored the two people that were ahead of him, as he began to trail off into his own thoughts

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Spotting something, Wolf changes the subject, “Let’s try this again. See that over there?” he pointed again

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Once again, she’s trying to catch sight of whatever Wolf was pointing at.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Then, Romulo spotted something by his feet And it’s a squirrel with it’s food. Wonderful…

The squirrel runs past the man, into the woods

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“See, its much bigger this time.” It pokes its head over the bush. It a deer in the distance. “Look, you can see it.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Seeing the deer has Rabbit transfixed. “They hunt those, don’t they? That’s what it usually says in the books.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yeah, they do, sadly. They make farm animals for a reason, yet people continously hunt the poor things anyway.” Wolf steps a bit closer, doesnt run.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She stands still, watching Wolf do Wolf things.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Wolf continues to get closer. This is the point where animals would run away from anyone else. He’s silent

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit inches closer, unsure if she should stay still or follow.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Wolf now approaches the animal. It looks wary of him at first. “Easy, easy… yep, we’re good.” He is actually stroking the deer’s fur on its neck like it was a horse. “Come over here slowly if you want”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin went to the nearby tables and sat down.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Well then…”, Romulo yawned as he started to walk back towards the camp

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya followed, her practice lance and shield slung behind her shoulder

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She takes a few steps closer and stops for a moment, glancing between it and Wolf, before she finally gets close enough to get a good look at it. “I thought they ran away whenever you got close to them.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

I hope Wolf and Rabbit weren’t too suspicious of Sam. The guy’s a practical pacifist…

He wouldn’t even hurt a fly…, Romulo thought kind of blissfully, trying to keep his mind off his own family

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Wow, that took a lot out of me.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

I should REALLY address some things though…, he thought as he walked back to camp (which took a long while)(edited)

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“They do,” he responded calmly, “Unless you’re like me, i guess. I mean, spending time in the woods lets me get to know animals well.” Making sure of the area, he told her, “You can come closer if you want. But its up to you,” he smiled

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I agree,” Natanya nodded, suddenly noticing her deeper breathing

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit reaches a hand out to the deer, cautious about scaring the thing.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He guides her for a moment. “See, its not too bad. People overexaggerate these kinds of things”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She let’s out a laugh as she pets the deer, “They’re pretty. I’ve only ever gotten to eat one before, I’ve never seen one in person.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“So… we haven’t talked very much lately, how are you?” she asked, inching closer to Tarquin

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Most people never get to get this close. You’re lucky” he smiled

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit simply smiles, “Thanks Mister Wolf.” She pulls her hand back as she eyes the trees, “What other things are in the forest?”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

They walked back toward slightly less wooded area, “There’s lost more here, streams, squirrels, rabbits,” laughs, “Probably too much to count.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Elsewhere, in the Library of Riverfast, an old priest is sitting at a table with pen and paper. On one side of him is a Flux tome that he picked up from an enemy shaman during a battle. The tome is dead and void of any magic, but its texts remain intact. On the other he has a tidy stack of research books borrowed from the library. He’s cross-referencing the texts with the tome, occasionally scribbling something down in his notes, or hitting the tome with magic to try and produce some sort of result… Whatever he’s doing, it’s clear that he neither wants nor needs to be disturbed at the moment, and likely won’t be back in town until the evening.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

As they move through the trees, she picks up one of the many sticks laying about and holds it out towards Zeus, “Too much to count? What do you mean?” She’s barely paying attention as she tries to coax some play out of the dog.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He watches her for a moment. “Well, the place is huge y’know? Nearly surrounds camp. Theres tons of animals, sceneary and the like…, Speaking of sceneary, hear that?” (to clarify its a waterfall further than the one on the map))

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She lifts her head from her attempts to bribe a dog with a stick. “Water? I think?”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yeah, there’s a waterfall over here, Wanna see it?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Yes, please!” Rabbit moves toward the sound, slightly ahead of the man.

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere has been well rested, and feels better now. He walks out into camp, looking for something to do.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He follows her over, letting her take the lead. “You see it yet? It should be right over here.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Well… that could’ve been worse, Romulo yawned as he finally got to the camp

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Now running into the clearing, she stops just before the water and stares at the waterfall. “It’s like one of those giant fountains!”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo looked up at the sky, seeing how much daylight was left in the day Well then, I have plenty of time…, Romulo yawned as attempted to make his way to his tent(edited)

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yep, a waterfall, there’s an other one close to camp, but I like this one. It leads into this pond instead of the stream. Theres probably some fish if you look closely”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She keeps her eyes on the ‘giant fountain’, “I’ve seen fish before, though. They aren’t that special. Not as nice as the waterfall.”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Thats right.” he looks as well. Zeus gets very close to the water. “Zeus, dont even think about it. You remember last time.”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Wow, I am so bored. There’s nobody around, and I don’t fancy going to Riverfast today, even if a trip to the library could get me some interesting books… What to do here then…

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Does Zeus like to swim? Hmm… She turns around and faces Wolf, “What do you mean, last time?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Maybe…I could write a story? Yeah, that sounds interesting. Bedivere heads back to his tent, gets some paper and ink, and heads to the mess hall.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“At the old camp, Nora and I went to a river, and he jumped in after her. Then it became a huge splash fest and we had no clue where he went.” Wolf laughs again thinking back.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit let’s out a giggle and a large smile appears. I’ll need to remember that. “Sounds like it was a lot of fun.”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Alright, so…ideas…ideas… Bedivere chews on his quill and thinks intensely.

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“You could say it was. I don’t want him to make it happen now, though.” He sneaks up on Zeus and picks him up, “Hah! Not this time!”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

After dropping off his bag in his tent, Romulo decided to go to the mess hall out pure boredom I wish I could do something more productive right now…(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

How about… A guy that has his family slain, and is out for revenge? Wait, that’s literally Tarq…Umm… A group of mercenar… Wow, I have no unique ideas…

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She’s still laughing as she stares at Zeus, “I wish I could have seen that! I think I’m ready to go back, though, Mister Wolf.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Then, Romulo sees Bediverewith a quil in hand and some paper in front of him. He decided to approach the cavalier(edited)

“Oh hi ” ((Massive derp on my part

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Sounds good to me, its getting kinda late anyway. Lets head back then.” He put Zeus down and let Rabbit go ahead

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“We came from this way, right?” She runs towards the direction they came from before making sure with Wolf, “We can keep going and we’ll get to camp, right?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere hears someone behind him, and guesses the voice. “Hello, Romulo. How are you doing?”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Yep, should be a straight shot back too.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Alright.” And off Rabbit went at a light jog. Nothing that couldn’t be kept up with easily. Zeus likes to play in the water. That might be worth something.(edited)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Doing well Bedivere. I just got back from a random walk in the forest”, Romulo replied

Mappy- 04/13/2016

He follows her for a while, not much happens

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Random? …whatever floats your boat, I guess.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I encountered Rabbit, and Wolf there. My brother also made a surprise appearance,” Romulo explained what he did, “He said he’d be in Thrandia around this time but here he was”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

They get to the exit, “So did you enjoy yourself Rabbit?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere finally turns around. “Your brother? What was he doing here? Joining us?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Yeah, the waterfall was really pretty! The deer was nice, too. Thanks for taking me to the forest, Mister Wolf.” She crouches down to pet on Zeus, “And you, too!” Especially you!

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“He said he was looking for an old friend of ours that didn’t show up at the place said person and my brother were supposed to meet at”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

God, he has an awkward way of saying things. “Hmm. Suspicious. Anyway, I’m trying to write a short story.”

Zeraion- 04/13/2016

Elsewhere, Quarender is meditating. He sits cross legged, atop a rock in a clearing. He feels a great disturbance in the Force

Mappy- 04/13/2016

“Okay then, if you need me or wanna go anywhere let me know. Make sure to eat dinner before the mess hall close”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Sure thing, Mister Wolf!” She gives him a wave and dashes toward the mess hall.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“A short story…”, Romulo said as he stood there for a few seconds, “Yeah I got no interesting ideas in mind”

Mappy- 04/13/2016

Hmm… She’s a great kid. Kinda sneaky though. Hopefully she doesnt try the incident at the town again.

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere sighs. “Yeah, me neither. I’m just gonna get some food right now.” Bedivere gets up and heads to the counter.

He returns with a plate of crumbed chicken and vegetables.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo also heads to the counter. Mainly because he’s hungry “So what are you guys serving today?”

Then, Romulo got a bowl of soup “Err…” “You said you wanted soup earlier today” “Uh thanks Julian…”

Romulo sat at Bedivere’s table

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere tucks in, eating slowly but surely. He looks at Romulo. “So, what did you think of those tunnels?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Err…. which ones exactly?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Umm… The ones we escaped from a few days ago?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Oh those…”, Romulo said, “Well… they were… well maintained?”

“I really didn’t have too much to say about the tunnels. Since, you know I was trying to not get overwhelmed by a bunch of New Republic troops”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Mm. I heard the other groups had a lot of trouble. Although I did go back to try and help you guys… Anyway. Do you have any hobbies?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I read books, occasionally I attempt to write stories but that never goes well…” Romulo took a breath from a moment as a took a spoonful of soup, “Also, I train on the off chance I have the time to, I also play games with some of my friends here and there”

“I also make an effort to write to my aunt and uncle, since they’re the only part of my paternal half of my family I can really tolerate. Other than my grandpa, but he’s a busy guy”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere takes a mental note of all this and continues eating.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“So what’s your hobbies?”, Romulo asked curiously as he also continued to eat some of his soup

((brb gotta eat irl))

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“So… we haven’t talked very much lately, how are you?” she asked, inching closer to Tarquin

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Oh, you know… Reading… Taking walks, Training… All the classic hobbies of a warrior who’s well studied.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“No, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“It has” Natanya agreed, taking her shield and lance off of her shoulder and onto the ground

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“It’s been so busy around here, yet it feels like all the hostility has left.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

beman’s daily routine was now finished and he heads off to do some resting*(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Anyway, how’ve you been? It’s been a while since we actually talked.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

((back))

“Ok,” Romulo said as he continue to slurp (if that wording is “right” I guess) some of his soup, “I also occasionally study the arcane arts.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I’ve been good, I’ve been training. Looks like I still got a lot to learn about the different types of style”

Natanya clasped her hands together, steepling her fingers

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“It’s not that hard, really. All you have to know is how you want to fight.”

“Your comrades should be able to cover your weaknesses, but try and practice covering them yourself, too.”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere thinks momentarily. “What do you mean by arcane? Dark magic?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“All 3 basic schools, after all my family is full of anima mages, monks, and shamans”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman finds himself nearby Tarq and Natanya

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I’d be damned if I at least didn’t know something about magic”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya nodded as she stared at her hands

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Interesting. I used to be a mage, you know. A Sage accepted by the Bachlumyan Scholars.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Ah Bachlumya, that’s where I’m from”(edited)

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere thinks about his time in Bachlumya. “I don’t like Bachlumya. Lot of… Bad memories there.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Hey, you okay? You seem…. Distant.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I lived in a peaceful village with my immediate family. and not with my extended family in the mountains”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“H-huh?” she jumped in her seat “I’m alright, I swear”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev, after a long break from exercise due to his injuries, heads off to the training grounds.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I’m… just wondering about all this peaceful time and stuff, how long it might last until the next fight”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I don’t have a lot of good memories with my extended family. Save for my direct aunt, uncle, and cousins”

“and my grandparents”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Hopefully a long time, but I doubt it.”

“It’s just…. I feel like I’m fighting a pointless war.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Having no innate magic potential really hurts your place within a family who’s dedicated to the arts, y’know?”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“I know both sides are in the wrong, yet here I am fighting for one.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

He sees Nat and Tarq, and decides to stay hidden. (I wonder that they’re talking about.)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo said sadly, and sorrowly as if bad memories reemerged

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Really, if it weren’t for you guys, I would’ve left here a long time ago.”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Hmm. I understand. Look, you ever want to talk, come find me. I gotta go.” Bedivere stands up and walks out.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Alright,” Romulo said as he also stood up, “later!”, Romulo called out to Bedivere, waving good bye

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere heads down to the training grounds because people are there because he wants to practice with swords.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Yep… never really cared much for politics” she said somberly “…I probably would still be travelling with that caravan…” she trailed off

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Hm? Caravan?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo heads into some part of the camp, where he says Tarquin, and Natanya talking about something.

Should I approach them?(edited)

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Her face perked up, “The caravan? Oh it’s nothing too important. It’s just how I started my adventure across the continent”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere notices a familiar silhouette hiding behind a tree. He lowers his voice and walks up to him. “Lookie what we have here! Ahh, spying? I didn’t expect that, Mev.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev instinctively pulls out his dagger before realizing who it was. “Gods Bedi, don’t sneak up on people.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo hears a familar voice, calling out someone Huh… didn’t notice him being there…

Wait…, Romulo thought as he looked at some of the buildings by him

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere sniggers quietly. “Sorry! So, who are you sneaking up on…?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Oh yeah, I could train

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“Nat and Tarq are over there chatting. I was going to train, but this seems a bit more interesting.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo stood there, dumbfounded at what he could possibly do

bemoney- 04/13/2016

beman’s head begins to ache again

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I might as well, to kill some time”, Romulo said under his breath as he approached Tarquin and Natanya, not noticing the conversation going on between Bedivere and Mev

bemoney- 04/13/2016

past memories are flooding in, but nothing makes sense

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere is slightly perturbed. “Kinky. Anyway, maybe we should… Stop hiding? Trust me, sneaking around never ends well.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“This isn’t sneaking, it’s waiting. If something goes wrong, we’ll interrupt. Otherwise, nothing’s happening.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Coming down south from Riverfast, Corian approaches the base camp from his day trip in Riverfast. After clearing his identity with the guardsmen, he returns the horse to the stable, and retrieves his things.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

They must be busy… Romulo sighed as he decided to train at the training grounds

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Alright then.” Bedivere sighs. “I’m tempted to just shout: KISS! at the two of them…”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Pack full of books and parchments, he makes his way to his own tent.(edited)

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“…But yeah, that’s not too important.” she quickly added “I may still be bothered by something”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo passes by Bedivere, noticing him at the last second

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Huh? Well, you can tell me.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Oh hi again”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere is exasperated.

“I’m kinda busy right now, Romulo.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

(I need to find a different tree.) Mev begins climbing climbing up the tree.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I still can’t stop thinking about that play and how Sigurd’s story came to an end”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Oh…”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman sees Mev and gives a little wave

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere whispers intensely. “What the HELL are you doing, Mev?!”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Look, don’t worry about it. I doubt it will happen to us. We’re too smart for that.” Tarquin grinned.(edited)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Wait.” Romulo says as he looks at Mev, What is HE doing?(edited)

Tarips- 04/13/2016

He sees B waving and waves back. “I need to find somewhere less populated. It’s no good if I’m noticed.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

(What are they doing?)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Why the hell is he climbing up a tree

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman noticed Romulo, and Bedivere earlier

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Uh Bedivere, do you know why that guy is climbing up a tree?”

Romulo said, deadpanned

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere decides to walk away a little to avoid bring near Mev when he inevitably gets caught. “I…don’t have a clue, honestly.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I understand that, but the thought of it scares me. That and Sigurd’s death, i-it just seemed too real,” she spoke shuddering slightly

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin gives her a hug.

“Hey, don’t worry. I won’t let that happen to anyone, alright? Not you, not Mev, not Nora, no one.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo also walks away a little, to make sure he doesn’t get stomped on by Mev

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“I promise.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“I just told you why, listen.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Bedivere, you know what I want to happen right now?”

Romulo said as he pointed to Tarquin and Natanya

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Him getting caught?” Bedivere points to Mevardan.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Besides that”

Romulo points to Tarquin and Natanya

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Thank you…” Natanya blushed, slowly making eye contact with Tarquin

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“A kiss between those two?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I want them to kiss already dammit”, Romulo said quietly

“Tarquin’s told me about his relationship with “A Knight that was with us during that tunnel raid and whatnot” and it sounded cute”

“It even looks cute right now…”

Romulo said all this quietly

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“I mean, your fantasies are your own, I ain’t judging.” Bedivere sniggers again.

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev starts quietly singing. “There you see her Sitting there across the way She don’t got a lot to say But there’s something about her And you don’t know why But you’re dying to try You wanna kiss the girl.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Well fuck you too!”, Romulo said jokingly, trying to surpress a laugh as he saw Mev on the tree

I hope he falls… Romulo thought

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Jeez, shut up!”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin looked back and blushed.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Hey Bedivere”, Romulo whispered

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere walks out of his hiding spot casually, as if he hasn’t been hiding at all. “Hey, Nat! Hey, Tarq!”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya sat there for what seemed like an eternity, enjoying the warmth of Tarquin’s embrace. “Y’know… I don’t really say this often, but…” she paused

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Just passing through.”

“Be gone in a second…”

Bedivere positively sprints away.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman tries to get up, but is too damn tired

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo walks by the 3, as he stands by a tree, sitting down, as he reads a book

“Don’t mind me, just reading a book”

Then, he looked up and realized Mev was there

Romulo looked at Mev with the expression of “u better not fall on me goddammit”

and he walks away from the tree and back to the training grounds

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere runs faster worried about possible consequences.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

RIP Bedivere, Romulo thought as he entered the training grounds, taking a quick look at Tarquin and Natanya before going in

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere is well away from the training grounds at this stage.

But is still running.

Tarips- 04/13/2016

(Mental note: Ruin Bedivere.)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

As Romulo stood inside, by the doorway he had Mev in range

Then, he looked up at him, and stared at his soul at him

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“…I-I think I’m falling for you” she finally whispered, disregarding the distractions going on around

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin blushed madly and whispered back. “Yeah, me too.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

(Was it not obvious?)

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev continues his singing. “Sha-la-la-la-la-la My, oh, my Look at the boy too shy He ain’t gonna kiss the girl “

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya slowly inched herself forward, tilting her head slightly

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Is he… singing a song?! Romulo looked at the man in the tree, dumbfounded

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin starts closing his eyes and comes toward her as well.

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“You’ve got to kiss the girl Why don’t you kiss the girl You gotta kiss the girl Go on and kiss the girl”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

JUST KISS HER ALREADY!!!! Romulo yelled at his mind as took a quick glance and went back inside

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman closes his eyes and takes a nap, giving the lovers the little privacy that they could possibly get

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Their lips finally connect, Natanya’s face turning a light shade of pink.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, Romulo thought happily

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere is on the opposite side of the camp. He decides he is far enough away.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian makes his way out of his tent, and sees Bedivere nearly out of breath.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

realizing that the ground isn’t a good place to sleep, especially with a head injury, Beman arises

Beman grunts

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo took a quick glance outside, as he sees both Tarquin and Natanya engaged in a kiss. Then he does a thumbs up at the man in the tree. For no reason

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman scratches his head

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin blushes as their lips connect, and he savors the moment.

Lawls- 04/13/2016

Nora tossing and turning in her sleep “He kissed….The girl”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Is everything all right, Bedivere?” he asks cautiously.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“He kissed her!”, Romulo said as he looked up and saw the guy in the tree

“Please I think you can go down now”

Lawls- 04/13/2016

Nora goes back to sleep(edited)

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo said quietly

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Hi, Corian! So, umm, Mev was spying on Nat and Tarq, and I got involved, and Romulo got involved, and I think I got seen, and Tarquin might be annoyed, he might not, but I wasn’t sticking around either way. Clear enough?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit shows up near Corian’s tent, seeing Bedivere and the other near each other. Walking slowly toward Corian, she keeps quiet as Bedivere talks.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian pauses, and stares blankly.

“…Take a deep breath. And then please try again.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman sits back down, he’s too dizzy to even stand

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross lands by Corian and coos, greeting him.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo then clapped as the kiss happened. It was a weird slow clap, so they couldn’t hear it

Loyal- 04/13/2016

His head turns to greet the sudden newcomer. “…Cross…?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere gasps, and sighs. He talks slower this time. “Basically, I got dragged into spying on Natanya and Tarquin, and Tarquin might be annoyed so I ran away.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“And… why were you spying on them?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit tilts her head. I don’t think I know Natanya.

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Hell if I know. Ask Mev.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian’s leaning on his quarterstaff, not yet takign his eyes off Cross.

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere walks over to Cross, and pets his head.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Finally breaking away, Natanya whispered “You make me feel so safe…” as she hugged him

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross looks and Corian inquisitively. “Breee?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

“Hello, boy… Long time no see…”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Don’t worry, I won’t let anything happen to you, I promise.” He hugged her back.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He looks down at the wyvern’s torso. “I … see your wounds are healing well, Cross.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross nods slightly.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo walks out of the Training Ground, casually walking by Tarquin and Natanya

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere notices Rabbit at the side. “Oh, hello there, Rabbit! How’s our brand new postgirl doing today?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman gestures at Romulo

“Hey”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Hello there, Mister Bedi.” She steps closer to the group, “Tired, but good.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian gingerly reaches out to rub Cross on the snout. “Good, good…”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Hello Beman”

“By the way, I also saw it”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Think you can help me?”

“My head is killing”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Err what do you need help with?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“And it’s hard to stand”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Ah”

“You need a shoulder to lean on? Or do you actually need someone to carry you?”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross lets himself be pat, then looks at Rabbit and Bedi.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Just a shoulder should be fine.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Rabbit, how’s the job been going?”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere smiles. He considers hugging her, but that could be…interpreted unfortunately. “So, no post for me?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman attempts to stand up, but needs help

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“…I love you, Natanya.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“I’ve been really busy. It’s a lot harder then I thought it was going to be. I’ve gotta remember so many people.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I got ya”, Romulo says he helps Beman out

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“…i-I love you too”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“You know magic, right? A little bit at least?”

“Is there anything about memories that has to do with magic?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Well, that’s not too bad, is it? Get to know the people around camp!”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I can’t cast it myself, but I do know the basic principles”, Romulo replied

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“…Foster friendships, and trust.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Yeah there’s magic related to memories. Creating fake ones. Forgetting some. Remembering some. Yeah there’s a whole bunch of it”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Yeah, well…” She shrugs and takes her hat off, “It’s just hard remembering all the faces and names and not getting them mixed up.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Huh”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Let’s get you to the infirmary first”

jddaepicboss- 04/13/2016

Bedivere laughs. “Yeah, I’m terrible with all that.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Sounds good.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo walks with Beman, helping him to the infirmary as they pass by Tarquin and Natanya(edited)

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He nods. “Well, hard is not impossible if you put your mind to it.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Deciding that they had hugged for long enough, Natanya detached herself from Tarq’s embrace and got up

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“I know, I know. Just like learning about how to use a staff.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He thumbs in the direction of Cross. “I certainly didn’t find it easy to take care of Cross here, but here we are.”

“Hm… yes, the staff.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin got up too. “So… I’ll see you around?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Also, why did you ask about magic related to memories? Did some bad ones surface up or…?”, Romulo asked as they pass by the Tarquin and Natanya

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Not sure, I’m getting memories, but I haven’t seen them in so long, it’s almost as if they’re not mine”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Is that Mister Mevardan’s dragon? What happened to Cross?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Describe them for me” Romulo said as he and Beman continued to walk

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross nods at Rabbit.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“He got hurt pretty badly in the forest awhile back. Still not sure of the details, but…”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“I guess I’ll see you around” she responded with a smile, picking up her belongings from the ground

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian pats Cross’s side. “He’s a pretty sturdy fellow.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Figures, dark. They’re surrounding me, beating me, not taunting, but reminding me of my weakness.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Good news is, Heal Staves work as well on dragons as they do on humans.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

He puffs up his chest, proud.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“I haven’t gone through that since I was a kid, so I don’t know why I’m remembering it now”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Oh! Well I’m glad Cross is okay. I don’t know him that well just yet, but I like him. He’s the friendliest dragon I’ve ever met.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Maybe it’s because of what happened yesterday…”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Yeah…”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

She adjusted her eyepatch nervously

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Oh yeah.”

“That may be it”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin kisses Nat on he cheek.

“Bye.” and he left.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“I think we’re al-“, Romulo was about to say when he realized how long they might have to walk

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev jumps out of the tree and runs to Tarq.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“At any rate, I’m guessing you’re here to begin your staff training?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Hm?”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“Walk her back you idiot!”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“This’ll take awhile”, he yawned as helped Beman walk towards the infirmary

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya’s face lit up as he gave her a kiss

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She nods, “Yeah, I’m ready. I really want to know how to use those staves!”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo sees Mev and Tarquin talking

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“…bye” she responded, seconds later

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Thanks, by the way.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Hello!” Romulo called out to the two

“No problem. Just helping a friend”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Good, good.” He nods, solemnly, before turning to Cross. “I’m afraid we have to part ways here, boy. Take care, alright?”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Cross nods at Corian before taking off.

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Wha? Wait, how long have you been sitting up there?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit waves at Cross as he leaves and turns to Corian and Bedivere, “What do I need to do to start learning?

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Hey Beman”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He turns back to Rabbit. “I’ve got all I need to get started, but this isn’t a good place for it.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“1000 gold says that Tarquin will kick Mev’s ass”, Romulo jokingly wagered

Tarips- 04/13/2016

“That doesn’t matter, just walk her back.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Wait a minute, were you spying us?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“What?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya slings her shield and lance over her shoulder before starting her trek back to camp

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Not even sure I have that much.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev gets behind Tarq and pushes him towards Nat. “Walk. Her. Back.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Just joking”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Oh. What would a good place for it be, then?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Oh”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Alright, sheesh.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Most of the camp’s been rather rowdy lately,” he says, casting an accusatory glance toward the direction Bedivere had come from, “but there’s a larger tent elsewhere which should offer some privacy so we can … concentrate.”(edited)

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin runs up to Nat.

“Hey, wanna walk back to camp together?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“It’s a good place for study in general. This way.” He waves his hand, motioning for Rabbit to follow.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya turns around is he back for round two? “Would love to” she responded

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Ah, okay.” Rabbit dashes after him, walking along side him and giving Bedivere a wave as they leave. “What will we be doing first?”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Alright.” he extended his arm to Nat.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Let’s continue on Beman”, Romulo gestured at the armor knight as the two kept walking towards the Infirmary

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Sounds good”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

While they are walking, he replies, “Tonight – and perhaps the next while, depending on how long it takes – we’ll be working on fundamentals. You have to crawl before you can walk, you know?”

“You can wave a staff around all you like, but the magic – literal and figurative – comes from within.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Gladly accepting his offer, she smiled as she got closer to him

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She tilts her head, “What would that be though? Is it like… going to be a bunch of reading tonight or something?”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“So… Beman, do you have anyone back at your home that misses you?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“People who miss me? I know of one who wants to kill me…”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He shakes his head. “Surprisingly, the text stuff comes later. This is more … soul-searching, I suppose you could say.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Holding Nat’s hand, they walk back to camp.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“But there’s somethi-no someone who I’ve been meaning to meet.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Shortly thereafter, they arrive at a large tent on the northeast side of camp.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit felt confused. Looked confused. “Umm…” As they arrive, she kept trying to wrap her head around what he was saying.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Who?”, Romulo asked Beman as they approached the infirmary

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“We’re here. Just trust me a moment.” He parts the opening, allowing her to go through first.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“The one that wants me dead is my sister, or I guess my family”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She heads in, still as lost over the comment as ever. “How do you ‘soul-search’?”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“The one I’ve been meaning to meet is someone who I’ve wronged, a long time ago.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Inside the tent is a small collection of low tables, cushions, and bookshelves, dimly lit by numerous candles.

The books themselves cover a number of topics, but this being a military camp the depth of their coverage is a bit limited.

Corian sits down on one of the cushions, and gestures to another opposite him. “Please, take a seat.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“How did you wrong her?”, Romulo asked curiously, since he had a good relationship with his 2 brothers and even his she-devil of a sister

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“I killed her.”

Tarips- 04/13/2016

(My work here is done.) Mev enters the training ground and begins stretching.

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Why?”, Romulo asked, not looking shocked. But inside, he was

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit stares at the bookshelves, curious of their contents as she sits across from the man. “Alright, so how do I start this stuff?” She seems impatient if not confused.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

beman’s head begins to hurt, he winces

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

That’s surprising… Romulo thought to himself

“Ah shit, we should be getting there about… now I’d say”, Romulo said as he looked at the bulding/tent

“Well we’re here”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian speaks slowly and deliberately. “Rabbit. If you are to take up the way of the staff, there are two fundamentals you must grasp:”

“The first is learning to recognize and reshape the flow of magic, so that you can actually command the energy needed to heal.”

“This is the first step for anyone studying any form of magic.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Y’know my feet were hurting earlier, but now it feels like I’m floating on air she thought to herself as they walked

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin and Nat approached Nat’s tent.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He pulls out a Heal Staff, and holds it out for Rabbit to take.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit stares at Corian, a flat look on her face. But howww? She reaches over to take the staff, surprised it wasn’t as light as she thought it would be.

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Alright, here we are.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Do you feel anything from that staff, right now?”

In Rabbit’s hands, it is nothing more than a lifeless hunk of wood.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She shakes her head but stays silent.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian nods. “This is because there is no power inherent within it. The staff will reshape and focus magic… into the effect you desire. But as I said before… the magic comes from you.”

“Magic in, is magic out. A staff, a tome… those are nothing more than foci to produce the desired effect.”

As if to demonstrate, he puts his hand toward the staff, and focuses his magic into it. It glows slightly, and tingles in the smaller girl’s hands.

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“Okay, I’ve gotta do some stuff before the day is over, I’ll see you around, Nat.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Natanya moves towards the entrance to her tent and turns around

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“So… Romulo was it? Why is Beman here?”Mica asked as Romulo explained quickly(edited)

“Ah, alright. He’s in good hands” Mica replied smiling, as she started to treat Beman(edited)

“Later Beman”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit let’s out a quiet giggle at display, “So I’ll be able to do that someday? Make it glow and make cuts go ahead?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

Corian smiles slightly at the explanation, but nods. “Correct.” He holds his hand out again, to take the staff back.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

She gave him a peck on the cheek “See you around” she said before turning back around to her tent

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

Rabbit surrenders the staff freely.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“But that’s for later. The second fundamental thing about healing magic… is far more important.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

“Thanks again.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Romulo headed out of the infirmary as he ran to his own tent

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin blushed a little and said, “yeah, see you.”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

“Huh, it’s almost dinner…”, Romulo noted as he’s back at his tent

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Healing requires a very particular mindset to accomplish freely… But regrettably, it’s a quality you lack at the moment.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Tarquin walked away, smiling from ear to ear.

bemoney- 04/13/2016

the medic leads Beman onto the bed, and goes to attend a sudden issue, the medic checks if Beman is ok before heading off, and calling in a certain cleric

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She frowns, “What quality is that?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“In order to heal… your thoughts, your desires… your being must flow in a particular way. Until we correct this, we can’t go forward.”

“That quality…”

NeoFire- 04/13/2016

Then, Romulo took out his journal and he started to write in it

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“Is conviction.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Like… Really wanting something really bad?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Oh my…” said a familiar cleric, making her way into the room

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“…close. But more … intrinsic than that.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman is in a bit of pain

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

Then, something popped into Tarquin’s head, and he suddenly got mad, and stormed to the training ground.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“It is conviction required to take a wounded man, and undo his injuries… It’s conviction that you need to stand tall in battle, and stop the wave of death coming for your allies… with but the power of your indomitable will.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

He arrived there and saw Mev. He approached him and said.

“Alright, buddy, were you spying on us or no?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She mulls over the words for a moment before speaking, “Don’t I kinda do that already? Is trying to find things for others to use to help themselves not good enough?”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

Mica walked over, grimacing at the sight of Beman in pain

Tarips- 04/13/2016

Mev stops swinging the practice lance. (I need different weight.) “Spying is such a harsh word. More like observing. I don’t hear anything you said.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He shakes his head sadly.

“Anyone can practice a modicum of altruism, Rabbit. Yet you don’t see very many healers, do you?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“No, I guess not…”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

“So you WERE watching us! Mev, I thought I could trust you more than that!”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“I say you lack conviction, because unfortunately… I know it to be true.”

DuffleBag- 04/13/2016

((Aight))

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She keeps her mouth shut, but it was easy to see she wanted to say something. A frown pulls at the edges of her lips.

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Don’t you worry, I’ll make you feel better!” Mica shined, grabbing her heal staff from a table nearby

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“You say you want to take up the staff to help… and yet you think nothing of stealing from those trying to make an honest living.”

ColdToiletSeat- 04/13/2016

“Please tell me,” she added “where does it hurt?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“That self-serving self-interest is a lack of conviction.”

“You lack conviction… when you seek the trust of your allies… yet lie freely to them, having no trust yourself.”

bemoney- 04/13/2016

Beman points at his head

Loyal- 04/13/2016

The words come out of his mouth resolutely, yet sadly.

He does not enjoy having to speak of a child in this manner.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She mumbles something under her breath, too quiet to be heard, and glances away. Upon hearing the accusation of lying, her head snaps back, “I didn’t lie, though!”(edited)

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He ignores her initial plea.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“I promised I wouldn’t steal here, and not once have I stolen here.” She looks angry, but she sits still.

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“You lack conviction when you come to ask your friends for help, yet shut them out when the help offered is not exactly as you expected.”

“You lack conviction…”

“Because you hide your intentions with every step. You fill our ears with half-truths and lies of omissions… with exact words that tell no direct lies… yet which serve your own selfish agenda…”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She backs down from his words, her teeth grinding against each other. “… So what if I do. I still haven’t lied.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

I’m sorry…

“Not lying… is not enough. Does this camp not provide for your needs?”

“Is there something so pressing which requires you to go behind your allies backs… just to steal that little bit extra?”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Of course there-” She snaps her mouth shut and takes several breaths, trying to calm herself down. Time to think about her words before saying them. “I can’t talk about that.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“…I would be lying… if I said I did not have secrets of my own to keep buried. Obviously this does not stop me from doing my job.”

“But I am not convinced.”

“When we ran into you in Riverfast – by sheer happenstance – …”

“You fled us. On reflex. On instinct.”

“Your friends.”

“As though we were as much the enemy as the authorities who might object.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Then don’t be convinced. I’ll have the conviction to make this happen without telling you a da-” She pauses again. Rubs her face. Takes a few more breaths. “It’s a personal matter is all I can say. You might not like it. The whole camp may not like it. But I’m not saying a word about it.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He leans forward slowly.

Staring directly into her eyes.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She stares back, her eyes refusing to blink. “You said you had secrets and you can still heal. If you can do it, I can do it.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“…we will see.”

“As I promised, I will do what I can.” he leans back a bit again.

“And we will see… if your actions can back up your words…”

“If you can prove to me that you are more than some common pickpocket.”

“If you can prove you have the conviction,” he holds the staff up again, “to breathe life into this noble instrument.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

“Maybe I won’t today. Maybe not tomorrow, or the next day. But I’ll get there.” She huffs and crosses her arms, “I’ll keep pestering you until I do.”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

“And I shall do the same. Until I know why you do this… until I can take away that ‘why’…” He closes his eyes. “…Until I can instill in you the conviction to trust your allies.”

He sighs.

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She leans forward, “I already trust you people!” She tilts her head for a moment and corrects herself, “… Most of you people. That’s why I wouldn’t steal from anyone here!”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

He shakes his head. “…It seems we have very different definitions of ‘trust’. But that’s … enough of that unpleasant subject for tonight.”

“Tonight.”

“We shall teach you about the currents of magic… and see what progress we can make in the next two hours.”

Rabbit- 04/13/2016

She takes a deep breath, obviously relieved the subject has passed. “Okay. Where do I start?”

Loyal- 04/13/2016

And then Corian put on his best Teacher Face and tried to awaken Rabbit’s senses, so that she could detect the magic already inherent within her.

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

bemoney- 04/13/2016

After Mica cast a heal, she left him alone to rest

As he laid there, his memories became clearer

The day he ended her life

Beman’s family was on good terms with the Lord of the land he lived in

This Lord was a good Lord,(edited)

But when one commits a crime, this Lord knows not of mercy

One day, it turns out a small village hasn’t been paying their taxes, as a recent drought destroyed the farms, and thus, their income.

One of these farms, was owned by a young girl, who happened to be one whom Beman admired, and of course, had feelings for

This young girl’s parents both perished a while ago, and she was forced to use the farm to provide for her younger siblings

Now

Because this village didn’t pay their taxes, the Lord was furious

He demanded that the head of each family in the village be killed

Now as a favour

Beman’s father said that he will take care of the killing

Beman’s father was also planning on using this as a rest of sorts for Beman

To see if there was hope for their useless son

So Beman was sent, with orders to execute the head of each family

Most of them already commit suicide, seeing no other way out of the situation

All

But

One

Tears streamed down beman’s face as he faced the first girl he’s ever loved

No matter the pleas from her family, the girl understood the situation, and simply requested that Beman takes the second chance he receives from his family

That he supports his peers no matter where he ends up

And that he lives happily

She was buried beside her parents

Beman left to the mountains, his parents believed he was training himself, but in reality, he was finding his resolve

He returned after a few months, his family welcomed him home, only to realise he hasn’t in fact, been training.

They beat him, to realise that their strikes no longer pain Beman anymore

In anger and frustration, they enlist him in the infamous NR army, as another test to see if Beman is indeed worthy of their family name

And now

There he lies

In the bed of a medic tent

Belonging to the monarch’s army

Combat Zone

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Alright, you ready?”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

“I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. How do you wanna decide when to end? First to three strikes?”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Sounds good to me.”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

“Alright” she grinned, preparing her shield and readying her lance

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

Tarquin readied himself for Nat’s attack.

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

Natanya slowly stafed her way around, occasionally taking a step forward

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Hm, won’t approach, huh? I guess I’ll go instead!”

Tarquin runs towards Natanya.

Tarquin swings his axe down onto Nat’s sheild and it flies out of his hands. Nat counters with a sheild bash.

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

He picks up his axe.

“Okay, that was a bit careless.”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

Natanya lets out a light chuckle from behind her shield, lowering it slightly to let out her response “A tad bit” she teased

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Mm. How about you try?”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

“Can do.” she ended the temporary respite, raising her shield back up and advancing with her lance at the ready.

When she got close enough she narrowed her eye and went for a cheeky shield bash

Tarquin charges forward and pretends to do a normal axe swing, but instead sweeps low and knocks Nat off her feet.

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

Natanya’s cheeky grin quickly faded from her face as she was knocked off of her feet. Grimacing as she hit the ground, she recovered quickly using her shield for leverage “Eheh, I wasn’t expecting that one” she grinned once more One for one

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“I’m full of surprises,”

Tarquin grinned.

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

“Certainly” she replied, readying her lance and shield once more

Staring at Tarquin’s stance, Natanya calculated how she should approach and go about attacking. When she found her target she narrowed her eye on him and stepped forward, her lance in tow aimed towards Tarquin’s chest

“-gah… Once again, you just keep on surprising me”

She refocused her attention on Tarquin and prepared for another blow

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“I think you’re playing too much by the book. Don’t be limited by what others do, do what you want.”

Tarquin charged.

Right before he was at Nat, Tarq spun around and hit Nat from behind.

“Case and point.”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

A look of surprise enveloped Natanya as she lost her balance

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

Tarquin extended his arm to Nat.

“Well, that’s 3. Good match.”

Tarquin gave Nat a warm smile.

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

Natanya caught his arm before she almost fell over

Regaining her balance, she shook his hand and grit her teeth

“Well fought.” she responded, quickly returning the smile

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“But yeah, like I said, you’re a good fighter, but try doing some things differently. It wouldn’t hurt to try, right?”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

Natanya smirked, “Well, the last time I did that I had my ass handed to me.” she laughed “…But you bring up a fair point, I gotta mix up my fighting to keep it from being predictable”(edited)

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Alright, I don’t know about you, but I think I’m gonna go sit down somewhere.”

ColdToiletSeat-04/13/2016

“Mind if I join you?” she added, wiping some sweat from her forehead

“Mev, please, tell me why.”

Tarips-04/13/2016

“Oh course I was watching, everyone was watching.” Mev pauses. “Remember when I teased you before the trip? Nora and I said we’d help you out.”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“EVERYONE?!” Tarquin blushes like mad and tried to hide it.

Tarips-04/13/2016

“…did you not see B? or Rom? or Bedi? Fuck Bedi, by the way, almost ruined everything.”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Oh god, everyone saw that…”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

Tarquin was now blushing even more, somehow.

Tarips-04/13/2016

“Should have found a quieter time to confess your feelings. So are you two dating or not?”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

Romulo, deciding that he’d actually train this time goes to the training grounds and sees Mev and Tarquin engaged in a conversation

This is awkward he thought

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Ugh, I don’t know.”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Uh. Hi Mev. Hi Tarquin” Romulo said as he approached the two, practice axe in ahd

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Hi… Romulo.”

“That’s not a lot of conviction for someone who just had his first kiss. You did a pretty good job.”

“Hey Romulo.”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Dude, I was rooting for you the entire time Tarquin”

sigh

“Mev, did you really have to?” Romulo asked Mev, both people knowing the context

A image of Mev up in a tree as he attempted to see if Tarquin and Natanya would kiss or not played in Romulo’s mind

“Guys, come on. Couldn’t you have just given is some privacy? We did with you and Nora, Mev.”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Huh they kissed?”, Romulo asked bewildered, clearly having not been told this

“Mev, did you…?”

Tarips-04/13/2016

“Our privacy came from everyone else being asleep.” He leans on his lance. “And having your time in front of the training grounds wasn’t your best idea.”

“Rrrrr….”

“Fine, fine. Just don’t do it in the future, okay? It’s embarrassing.”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Alright, who wants to go first?”, Romulo asked

Tarips-04/13/2016

“With enough time, I’ll be less embarrassing, don’t worry.” He thumps Tarq on the back. “We’ll go get you a drink later, to celebrate!”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Yep. Amon to that”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

“Heh, alright, sure thing. Try not to get too drunk, Mev.”

NeoFire-04/13/2016

“Hey Tarq,” Romulo called out to Tarquin casually, “Let’s spar”

DuffleBag-04/13/2016

((Can’t, gotta sleep soon))

((well rip))
