hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.
Karathinel 7/30/2014 3:21 AM
*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

    Cloak could not manage to hold back his sly grin. "Iplay yes. As for the regulars. Well they leave reasonable uneventfuland depressing lives outside of here. The drowned there painfulrealities in the frothy fantasy that is ale. This momentary escape fromthe pains that plague there life are but memories as they live in therehere and now and not think about 'What next'." Cloak showed no remorseor sorrow as he spoke the words.
    Cloak notices the change as Reven draws looks fromaround. "If you would like to take this back to my table I'm sure itwould be a little more private? I could introduce you to one of the'regulars' who isn't quite the same as the others. She may be able toanswer some of your questions as well. What do ya say?" Cloak asked ashe got up and opened the way with hand lead out to the table in theback corner.

As Ralthoin made his way back through the crowded bar he caught himself pondering the elf he was returning to. He had practically offloaded his life story to Keiri but in return she had given away absolutely nothing about herself. All he knew was that she was a friend of Ranaewens but her purpose for being here had been well hidden. Something did not sit right and this irked the dwarf. Always lookin' fer answers aint we? he thought as he approached her.

He gave the girl a reassuring smile as he settled back into his chair his hand reaching for his mug yet again.

"Excuse me if I overstepped the mark earlier missy," he started, " its just I cannae help noticing yer discomfort. A friend of Ranaewens is a friend o' mine so im just concerned for ye." He smiled again, something he found himself doing more and more in the company of the lithe elf. "Onyway ye dinna have tae tell me if ya dinna want to, Im more interested in you and Ranaes business in here. This place is dangerous at the best o' times, mebbes I kin help ye?" It was an obvious change of subject but the dwarf was genuinely wanting to help the elf if she was in any kind of trouble. "Efter a', Im yer friend right?"

Kramer opened his eyes, he was greeted with a blurry sideways view ofthe bar, the bottles of dwarven rum he aquired earlier lay about him,empty. Slowly, with what seemed a supernatural effort and a few blinks,his eyes adjusted and brought the room into focus. He sat upright onthe stool, his body swaying , face pale, eyes struggling to stay open.His mind was as clouded as ever, even the simplist of thought struggledto come to light and  under this intense daze, he continued tosway.
Gripping the bar firmly he slowly regained balance, his eyes focused on the floor.
"Welcome back"
said the barkeep.
Kramer lifted his head, hands still gripping the bar tightly.
"Same again?"
Kramer nodded,

Keiri looked up with wide eyes and smile. "Of course you're my friend!" She glanced back over her shoulder at Ranaewen, who seemed to be drinking heavily. "She never told me why we were to meet here, Ralthoin. She just said that if I wanted to meet up with her, this is where she would be. I just arrived in town..." The elf lifted her shoulders slightly, unconcerned.

"I'm not sick, just...tired," she finished with a small yawn and a stretch that made her cringe again briefly. As she looked back up, her young face suddenly showed fatigue in the dark circles under her eyes and lines across her brow. Ralthoin realized that she was not as young as she first appeared. She studied his face as well, and saw kindly concern etched across his features.

"I had to leave my home, you see. I husband..." her voice caught at the words and she looked down for a moment before continuing softly, "he is...he was a knight. He did not return from his last journey.  I needed to get away." Stark grief masked her face. She fumbled with a pouch at her waist and finally opened it, withdrawing a small packet of herbs. She hopped off her stool and moved somewhat awkwardly along the bar toward the barkeep, asking him in a soft voice for some hot water. She glanced at the other dwarf sitting there, obviously quite inebriated.

"Hello, friend," she said in her high, soft voice, placing a hand gently on Kramer's arm. "Is there some way I can help you?" Keiri murmured quietly after speaking to him, her gaze fixed on him intently. A brief soft glow of light passed from her hand into his arm.

Ranaewen knew she should try to keep her wits about her. And yet, the elven spirits were quite...good. Better than anything she had ever spent money on, certainly. She grinned at Whisp and took the offered spirits gladly. I'm fine, she thought, no problem...this is gonna be...

She blinked slowly. The room was spinning a bit, wasn't it? Or... She shook her head slightly and glanced around the tavern. She saw Keiri at the bar. And her acquaintance was still seated quietly, waiting patiently. He would know she had to be careful how she approached. to go about this...

"Oh, me? Oh, I'm just, you know," she shrugged in what she hoped was a casual manner at Whisp's question, "out to have fun." The half elf smiled roguishly. "What could be more fun than drinking and gambling, I say. And you, Whisp?...You frequent this tavern..?" She let her gaze drift over the elven woman, thinking that since she did not seem to be a wench, she must be a thief or worse. I really need to keep my wits here, she thought.

“Me?” her eyes batting wildly, “Oh I’ve been here longer than most but less than some.” Yes she was definitely here for something restlessness was giving that away. But what was she here for? “I’m a hostess of sorts for Cloak special guests. And you my dear would definitely qualify as that.” A hunger quickly flashed across her eyes. “But you have not been formally introduced to Cloak have you. Where are my manners?” She again filled the cap and placed it in her companion’s hand, aiding her hands off the table and towards her mouth in a gentle and caring motion, like a mother helping her dying child drink one last sip of water before the end. She then quickly scanned the room to find Liolin. Spotting him talking to someone who appeared to be a musician or bard of some sort based upon the lute lying on the table in front of him.

She then let out a shrill whistle to get Liolin’s attention. Then in a voice that seemed to ooze confidences and familiarity yet cut through the buzz of the tavern background noise called to Liolin, “Cloak, do be a dear and come over and meet my new friend. She just told me she can beet anyone, anytime, at any game of chance,” she gave wink to Ranaewen, the kind of wink old friends in the know gave to one another, “and I new right the two of you had to meet.” She turned back to Rawaewen and smiled, then motioned for her to quickly finish the drink in her hand.

Now where was her friend the nymph. She looked to where she had last seen her, and was taken aback, to the point that she quickly scanned the room one more time. The nymph no longer seemed to radiate youth. She had seemed to almost age. At first glance Whisp had thought the nymph had an older sister or a young looking mother take her place at the bar, but no it was definitely her. Tavern lighting was never flattering on anyone, but this was more than that. The nymph seemed almost sickly now, as if she was wasting away before her very eyes. Magic? Maybe a glam spell? If this was the case the nymph was definitely not who she seemed to be and deserved even more attention. She needed to get Liolin over to her side now. Firstly so she could protect him if need be and secondly she needed someone she could trust by her side to watch her back. Something  was about to go down, her keen senses were screaming, and all the players had not made themselves know, and those that had were changing before her very eyes. This was not good. Not good at all!

Good, he thought to himself, amidst all of the commotion no one has noticed my arrival.


Standing a darkened, shadowy corner of the room Aristoblis surveys the scene before him.  Pleased with his silent entrance he takes quick note of the room’s occupants, his keen, ancient eyes missing nothing.


Quite an interesting mix in here.  This should prove to be most interesting, Aristoblis observes to himself.  Dwarves and elves exchanging sorrows, and yet others drowning theirs.  However the most interesting bit is taking place just feet away.  An elf intentionally trying to get a half-blood drunk, and all while a drow apparently running the show.  No doubt the self proclaimed ‘master’ of this establishment…typical Dark Elf fashion.


Apparently none of the rooms occupants have noticed his arrival, which suits him fine.  Gives me longer to observe them, he says silently to himself.  When one travels roads few mortals even know about, seldom is one’s passing even noticed.


Aristoblis folds his arms silently into his robes, his staff held close to his body in the crook of his arm.  Listening, watching, absorbing, he continues to take in the surroundings.

Who was this female denying me my drink? thought Kramer, his anger starting to swell up inside him.
He stared at her intensly, his wild eyes expressing the rage he felt inside. How dare she. He thought.

 Now breathing heavily through his clenched teeth he reached foran empty bottle off the bar. Kramer was especially intimidating for aDwarf, his heavy musclebound body moved suprising quickly and thoughshort in stature he had an air about him that told most people its bestto avoid speaking let alone confrontation. He acted quickly or so hethought, 

Gripping the bottle by the neck his initial thought was to swingit, with some force, into her ..... smiling .....friendly .....face?
 Kramer hesitated.
Her smiling friendly face? thought Kramer. Why is she smiling at me?
Woman, or people in general smiling at him was not a frequent feature in Kramer's life. Not since, since...
Kramer started to think about his late wife, he used to love her smile,its what he lived for, he longed for.  With thoughts of his wifeKramer began to assess the situation.

His anger subsided suddenly, replaced by a mix of guilt and sheerhorror at what could of been.  He was in disbelief with hisbehavouir, he sat there stunned for a moment, unable to speak, ashamedof what he could of done. Did he not see that this stranger was actingnot with hostitlity, but with the intention of friendship?

"I....I..." he found it hard to speak
"Im sorry" was all he could muster.
He placed the empty bottle slowly back onto the bar
"Its not often people reach out the hand of friendship towards me"
he said,
Something about this person reassured Kramer, he felt calmer, more atease with the world. Something he rarley felt around elves.
Arcane trickery prehaps?
Kramer didnt care, he felt better .
"I..." Kramer hesitated again, embarrassed by the whole situation.
"I'm Kramer... Kramer Forgebrew"
He extended his hand.

"That would be excel-" Jabari's response to the drow trails off as a whistle comes from across the tavern, causing his attention to switch to finding the sound's origin.

Finding the source, he listens to the voice following the whistle. Hearing it's completion, Jabari raises his eyebrows and looks to Cloak, "Sounds like you may have some competition..."

Amused by the situation, Jabari smiles and waits for the dark elf's next move.

"Haha oh no my friend. Thats the table we are heading too. And thatlovely lady is an associate of mine. Please come to meet her." Cloakwore his ever-confident smile on his face as he walked over to Whisp.With a hug and a peck on the cheek upon arrival, Cloak listened to whatthe lady had to say.
     "Hello love. Ahh yes. I met with this younglady a bit earlier. I see she's taken a liking to your special littlebrew eh? It is quite nice isn't it? Some may even say its to diefor...." Cloak looked at the half elf as he spoke the last phrase,twisting his face in a grin that was a cross between wicked amusing andcocky. With a wink to the Half-elf, he turned his focus back toWhisp."The game will have to wait til another time I am afraid. Whisp mydear, would you be so kind as to make as to assure that Master Revenhere gets a nice safe place to stay tonight? He seems to be a travelingman and would love our friend here to have a comfortable bed to rest infor at least one night. Free of charge of course. As for me, I havesome business to attend to yet this eve, I'm sure I will speak withmany of you at a later date. Until then..." He bowed to the strangersand leaned in close to Whisp once again.
    Instead of a peck on the cheek this time though, heplaced his face right next to hers and spoke to her quietly in a tongue that only people of their ilk would comprehend.. "I havesomething to attend to. Be sure he has a nice room, he could prove ofvalue later on. And keep your eye on this one, get what you can fromher but be careful not to push her much, she is strong. I'll leave thetwo here posted for you at the bar. Meet back at the hall when you arefinished. And make sure you have an alliby for your whereaboutstonight." Cloak pulled away then and shared a smile with Whisp."If you'll all excuse me.." Cloak gave yet another slight bow and thenmade his way for the door.
