Val'Raveran | Yurun'hiir outpost (Sarghress domain)

Vithar rode past the gate into the fortress. He dismounted his wolf at the stables and headed over to the quartermaster's office. One of Vithar's subordinates approached him. "Hey, what's up? Sure makes you feel good, don't it, sir? Helping the clan rescue some girls from their virginity."

"You pump the neighbor's dog again, or are you always slack eyed and silly in the afternoon?" joked Vithar.

"Looks like you could use a little lift, Vithar. Why don't you suck on one of these," said the Sarghress soldier, holding up a cigar from the surface. "Smooth as a Val'Sullussin'rune's thigh but not as risky. Gotta pal over in Machike'shigumo in supply. We do each other favors. I've got lots of friends. Of course, I could always use another friend."

"What, so we can do each other favors?" questioned Vithar.

"Sure. See, if your pen wasn't quite so sharp and your eyesight not quite so clear around here I could make your lot in the military a lot more comfy. Not to mention down right rewardin'." said the other Sarghress.

"Soldier, you get that contraband stogie out of my face before I shove it so far up your ass you'll have to set fire to your nose to light it." replied Vithar as he walked away and entered the quartermaster's office.

"Quartermaster, I'd like to requisition equipment for a month's worth of travel on the surface."

Trinita practiced with the pole arm using a dummy horse and rider, he thought about why Durlyn left and the cold shoulder he gave him maybe he did take it harder than he thought or he insulted him by buying him a harme, that stupid.

He hoped Vithar got the ada and the message. Trinita prayed Vithar didn't spend his money but he thought it would be a way strange way to signal him that something was seriously wrong without telling the Harms at the White Lion.

There were few soldiers in the training room, most of them where working out or sparing.

After filling out a form for supplies, Vithar headed to the training center to spar. He usually went to the training center twice, once at the beginning of the day to lift and do cardio and again at the end to practice the martial arts. His sparring partner this time was a female Sarghress officer; it was often a good idea to train against someone stronger than yourself who was just as skilled. Both donned the lead mock armor and swords that resembled the actual ones used by Sarghress soldiers. The lead training equipment was weighted to be twice as heavy as the actual arms and armor.

After bowing to one another, Vithar's sparring partner initiated the combat with a high swing of her training weapon to Vithar's side. Vithar brought up his shield to block the attack, and stabbed at his opponent's temporarily exposed torso. The other Sarghress quickly pivoted her own scutum to block the attack, but Vithar brought his sword up and slashed at his opponent's head. The female Sarghress parried the attack and hacked at Vithar's unprotected side, winning the fight.

The two bowed to one another and prepared for a second round. This time, they would use double-handed weapons in lieu of swords and shields. Vithar initiated combat with a low swing to his foe's midsection. His sparring partner brought her double-handed hammer down to deflect the blow, and retaliated with a strike at Vithar's face. Vithar jumped back as the hammer passed less than half an inch from his face. The weapons were padded as to avoid lethal injury, but being struck by them still hurt a great deal. Vithar noted that his opponent had over extended herself with that attack, so he spun within her reach and struck at her neck with his axe. The two bowed to each other and decided to take a break for now.

As Vithar went to get a drink of water, he noticed Trinita practicing with a naginata on the other side of the gym. The guy looked busy so Vithar decided to wait a little while to talk to him.

Durlyn arrived at the fortress on Molva, feeling better now after his shopping spree and feeling ready for anything with his new axe and golem knife equipped gauntlet. He waved to the guards and exchanged words briefly, Durlyn being on good terms with many of the base's personel, and dropped Molva off at the stables, the red wolf whining softly and tugging on his blue cape, reluctant to let him go at first.

"Now Molva, be good, I'll be sure to ride you again another time. See ya later girl, take it easy, thanks for keeping me company all day" Durlyn told his favorite amongst the Fortress's mounts before leaving her side, waving at Chezz and a few other wolves he favored.

"Hmm, guess Trinita beat me home. Oh well, I'll drop by and say hi later, I just wanna go take a bloody nap already. I'm bea....BY THE ABYSSE!!! GET BACK YA DAMNED BEAST OR I'LL MAKE A FUR COAT OUT OF YA!!" Durlyn suddenly hissed in outrage and shock as Old Grizz, the eldest and strongest alpha male amongst the Yurunhiir's wolf mounts snarled and snapped at him, nearly siezing the highland raider's leg in his mighty jaws.

"Damn you mutt...I swear, one of these days the officers are gonna get as sick of you as the rest of us and when that day comes I'll be there to watch them put you down you grouchy old bastard..." Durlyn grumbled, the grey, scar covered beast of a dire wolf snarling at him even as he passed out of sight, many of the other weaker wolves whimpering in fear of the big brute.

The Yurunhiir only tolerated Grizz's aggressive nature because he was one of the old breeds and a veteran of many battles, in short, good breeding stock. Many of the fortress's strongest mounts were sons or daughters of Old Grizz and one of the alpha females, and the vicious animal only permitted the highest ranking of the Yurunhiir officers to ride him, quick to snap and bite at anyone else foolish enough to try.

Durlyn traveled through the fortress on the way to his sleeping quarters, hoping he wouldn't run into anyone, friend or officer or otherwise. He just wanted to sleep before going to the White Lion and meeting with Maria for the trip.

Trinita happy with his practice, turned and saw Vithar. He grin seeing a frendly Highlander for once, waved and walked over to him. "Sir how was it at the white lion? did Harme get you the message that I sent you" He waited for Vithars answer.

after hearing Vithars answer he would explain about Durlyn, not spending an evening with the Harme he requested, Durlyns very terrible mood, he paid for the ada for the harme and sending Vither the message and the ada to prove that something is wrong and finally ask nicly if he could have his ada back.

after the brief recap

"Well Sir, this isn't like him. That fox.. well to fully understand why I acted the way I did Sir. The both of us met her earlier along with the Wardin we kinda know and a little Sullisin'rune brat who we had a bad scuffle with any ways, I was watching her and she was eying Durlyns ada very closely. Honestly when I came back to the white lion and met you, I thought Durlyn could handle himself with one, then the other one came in and It seemed the two foxs where partners working together and...(he clenched one of his fists) I was afraid one of them would slip something in his drink while the other distracted him, I couldn't let that possibility happen to him while I could help it..."
He paused for a moment to gather his thoughts "I tried to make it up to him for interrupting him, for better or worse. I can understand why hes mad at me and gave me a cold shoulder but at lest hes alive ... I'm sorry sir, I'm making an excuse for what happened. I owe you apology for bringing you into that and embarrassing you." It didnt strike him rightaway but he felt comfortable enough around Vither, he guess it was because he was old enough to be his dad and telling him his thoughts seemed alright.

Durlyn finally made it to his room, removed his armor and put it away, put on a pair of spider silk pants to sleep in and went to bed, knowing he would need the rest for tomorrow when the time came for all of them to meet at the White Lion and begin their journey. He prayed he would dream of Sabryna tonight, and that she would tell him what to do in regards to getting the info he needed out of Maria.

Vithar nodded as to indicate that it wasn't a big deal. "Hm, just remember to be a bit more careful in the future. Say, tomorrow I'll be heading on that trip to the surface. If you've got no other obligations, we might need the help. Durlyn told me that in addition to a couple drowhir pilgrims that crazy Sullusin'rune son of a bitch is apparently hitching a ride too. If anything, they'll be paying big for the escort."

Trinita nodded back and seemed to relax a little, when Vithar mentioned about the trip. "No sir, in fact" he went through his pocket and got the papers that gave Durlyn and Trinita permission to the surface and handed it to Vithar "funny that you should mention that sir. Althougho there isn't any charge to escort them up to the surface, I believe Durlyn has a reason but you would have to talk to him yourself, I haven't talked to him personally yet but I plan too. I over heard somethings while he talked to her at the bar but i didn't try to listen to their business. I have some herbal gathering and a little study I wish to do and some scouting for ruins and such. I kinda now the greys and I didn't offer a price since i was going that way ." He flipped to a section of a few surface plants that helps with deadly fevers.

"as for the Sullusin'rune sir, hes trouble and invited himself I have no care for him and is dead if he starts trouble, Me and Drulyn had a bit of a chase in the bar with that bastard. Hes really quick and hard to catch, got away for the moment.."

"If you aren't tried from any sparing sir, can I have a turn?" he grinned.

"No reward, huh? Ah, might as well come along. There's not much for me to do here at the moment that I can't get someone else to do. Scouting for ruins sound like a good excuse as any to go to the surface. As for sparring, sure thing."

The two walked over to the ring and bowed to each other before drawing their swords and falling into ready stances. Vithar initiated with a left-side feint which turned into an underhanded swing from the right. Trinita blocked the attack with his shield and stepped to his side whilst slashing at Vithar's left. Vithar parried Trinita's blade wide and sliced at Trinita's neck. Trinita was too fast and ducked out of the way of Vithar's sword. Vithar adjusted his grip and made a quick strike downwards towards Trinita. Trinita parried with his shield and jabbed at Vithar's face, causing him to leap back. The two circled each other for a few seconds before Trinita charged forwards. Vithar quickly stepped out of Trinita's path and struck him across his left armpit, thus winning the battle.

"That wasn't bad at all. You're pretty good, just remember to stay aware and you won't have a repeat performance when it counts."

Postby Durlyn Val'Sarghress » Wed Feb 18, 2009 6:15 pm

Durlyn woke up the next day feeling refreshed after the wild day he'd have, and he had indeed dreamed of his lost love Sabryna...Though they had been constantly interrupted by thieving, oversexed fox women, a perverted sullisin'rune, his friend Trin and superior Vithar, that uptight blacksmith, and the lovely but stern drowussu girl Maria.

"Weirdest. Dream. EVER." Durlyn said to himself just as he heard a knock at the door to his room, got up from his bed and was greeted by a light elf slave girl dressed in a plain blue dress with mini skirt (picture what Liriel wears only blue and on an adult).

"Well hello there, what seems to be the trouble?" Durlyn inquired, leaning in the doorway with bare chest and toned stomach on display for the poor, blushing elven maiden to behold.

"Um...Well...This letter came in for you today with a package milord, here!" the girl stuttered, trying not to stare at the shameless drow male as he took the letter and said, "Thanks! Have a good day, cutie."

"Th..Than...Thankyou milord!" the girl exclaimed, her face so red it looked like a tomato as she rushed off down the corridor.

"hmm, nice girl" Durlyn said as he re-entered his room and opened the letter:

Dear Son,
Hope you are doing well and staying out of trouble, there's 80 ada in the package plus some presents from your sisters. I know thats more than I usually send you but I want you to buy something nice for your sisters the next time you return home on leave, and I've heard about how those qins keeping conning people out of their hard earned money down in Raveran, and know how much you like to go out with your friends so I figured this way you'd have plenty of money to get your sisters something nice and stil, l have fun with your soldiers pay. Do be careful with the Kyorls afoot, they've been acting bolder in Chel lately ever since we got word of that mad woman Senek'ha's execution. Durlyn, I'm sorry about what happened to your friend Izzril and your mate Sabryna, I know she was your first and you must be hurting but you're still a Sarghress and a Claddurden, I know you can fight your way through this. I know how strong you truly are and what you can do my boy, I raised you to be that way. Make me proud and don't forget about your sisters, be strong and make me proud son, as you've always have.
Love,
Your mother, Graereianna Claddurden Sarghress

Durlyn closed the letter and put it in his dresser drawer as he opened the package and discovered two gifts, one that made him beam and one that made him GAG. The one that made him beam was a fine looking wooden pipe carved in the shape of a snarling wolf's head, his sisters knew how much he enjoyed smoking the surface plants found in the overworld every now and again, plus it gave him an excuse to practice his fire sorcery wherever he went. Such a thoughtful and expensive gift must have come from Baldra and Haeldra, he could never imagine Nhile or Xune spending their money on anything more expensive than themselves, let alone a real wooden pipe. The second gift, the one that made him ill to look at, was a very well tailored azure blue, sleeveless longcoat with gold colored trim and a pack of wolves running inn formation on the back and a pair of indigo blue pants, all made from spider silk. Durlyn HATED wearing fancy "pretty boy" clothes like these but knew his sisters loved dressing him up just to see how handsome their "Scary Brother" looked in them, and he suspected they expected him to wear this ensamble when next they met, probably planned on dragging him to one of their friend's sullisin'rune parties...Sigh.

"Oh, well, its the thought that counts and I love this pipe. Besides, if we end up going to a town somewhere the locals might be less threatened by a drow in fine garbs than a suit of armor, I'll take it with me just in case. Better head out before Pariel convinces Maria to leave without me" Durlyn laughed as he packed the pipe and new clothes in the pack he kept in his room, put on his armor and weapons, pocketed his new money, and left the room to head out to the White Lion so they could begin their trip at long last.

"I'll find out who murdered you Sabryna my Sunflower, no matter what..." he thought inwardly as he walked down the hall.

The next morning, Vithar woke up, bathed, packed up his gear for traveling, and went to meet Durlyn and head out to the White Lion. He expected Trinita to come along too, hopefully they'd meet up on the way. "So Durlyn, what lead you to accepting this job? Personal reasons? Something up on the surface that I should know about? Trinita should be along soon, if you're wondering."

(Thalar I gave Alric permission to use Trinita for the fight)

"Thank you sir, I remember that" he wide smiled back like it was a dream come true, He saluted Vithar and headed to bed for the night.

The next morning, Trinita woke up alone in his room, his bunk mate was on a surface mission so he had it to himself, he washed up and picked up the both his Gear and Durlyn Gear he Stored in his locker. It was Heavy but he managed. He made his way to the exit to meet the others at the white lion but came across the both of them, his luck he thought.

He wondered if Durlyn was still mad at him, he walked over there. Maybe like six seconds after Vithar said Trinita should be along soon.

"Morning Durlyn, Morning Commander Vither" he greeted and nodded at the both of them, then Saluted to Vithar. He slung off Durlyns pack and handed it to him "this is for you"

"I'd rather not talk about it just yet Commander. And thanks Trinita, you get all this stuff yourself? Sheesh, the officers were generous! Please tell me we can take the wolves..." Durlyn said to his two fellow soldiers as they walked down the corridor.

Trinita shook his head "..The wolves have to stay, the main force will needed fresh wolves." he followed them down the hall adjusting his pack properly to his back.

"Great, wonderful! so we gotta travel ALL the way to the tavern on foot, bloody wonderful. Here's to hoping there are some lizard mounts left at the tavern for us to use instead of those bleedin horses. Oh, how much surface cash do we have? Should we stop by the bazaar and exchange what we have for gold?" Durlyn inquired as he saluted some officers passing by.
