Raveran||The ruins of Kem´Shandar [[PRIVATE]]

The beast raised its head eying the both of them, laying outstretched on the ground, the cheat moving heavily and the breath more a whuffing then a controled breath, it lowering its head again on the stone, closing its eyes... and resting again. The darkness around it seemed to have gone... aswell as the aura that acompanied it most of the time before. By now it was just looking like an oversized stonetiger... or more like a ridingcat of the clan Sullisin´rune. The black fur moist and smelling from the melt water, the beast opening slightly its snout letting hang out its tongue breathing heavily, ignoring the words between them two by now. They were in the underdark.. somewhere... in the middle of nowhere to be exactly... there was a trail... a faint trail... of many drowlings. But how long it´d need to get them. Who knows? And the beast somehow doubt there was any sort of food on the way. At least no food that would maintain its current state. He could only feed on the two around him... nothing he´d appreicate. But for now, the cooling stone and rest after a long run was its only desire.

In the very far the ground still quivering under the rage of the lava beast. Small lizards running nervously here and there between the mushrooms as if feeling there was havoc in some distance.

Hours pass in silent rest, the breathing of them three the only noise around them. In the air resting the fine scents of mushrooms, and maybe the smell of an animal. But no smaller predator and nothing even bigger that lives from mushrooms and moss dare to come near the three... the beast still reducing in size as it rested... by now really having the size of a Sullisinrune mount. Aswell as it lost much of the intimidating shape it had. The claws and fangs still sharp and most probably deadly if approached careless have lost though something of their demonic shape. The dark mist vanished aswell the only thing covering teh cat the deep black rather thick fur.

After hours of resting it riased again nudging Vlos with its nose to urge the small drow to move on. It had no problem in hunting in the wild.. but the drowlings without support might get trouble.

Come... have to go.. can´t remain here... you will die by hunger and thirst... The thoughts stroking vlos like a whisper as the beast raised to its paws. By now its head was about in the height of Thorgirs chest insteat of looking down at him. Still muscular it seemed to have lost two third of its original size.

No food... saving strength... The answers to the maybe question of why it might have shrinked. It felt even weakened. But it was the only way not to die by hunger or get insane and devour the only food close to it. To reduce the need of its mana to a minimum.

It let Vlos climb onto its back... and after a few moments it allowed even Thorgir the same. At least then noone would get lost and it would only need to follow its senses. Those were still very sharp.. and somewhere were beings. Drowlings... manasources... though it might be a long way from here.

The beast entered another tunnel following the faint scent.. letting it lead through the darkness, the only companions animals and mushrooms.

The travel was long... for days nothing but tunnels. The cat followed tunnels and the scent of other drowlings. And not to say.. he got lost sometimes... The only thing to eat was what the beast and Thorgir could hunt, or what maushrooms are there to eat. Small streams and ponds serve as watersource. The other time... long travels, partly on the beasts back, partly walking alongside it. The time the best used... the silent time to remember of what or who it once was. And at the end of it, it could identify itself again as what it was. Math... It was the closest it could think about.

Feeling well? the thoughts wandering towards Vlos together with a slight growl as they travel.

Math speeded up a little sniffing more loudly... then they all reached a wide cavern... a long cavern.

A strong scent small one.. Math nudging Vlos with his nose... a road.. this is a road... yet.. I am too tired to walk any further.. there is a strong scent of drow.. ahead.. or still coming.. i cant tell...

Math curled up near a stone on the side in teh smaller tunnel eying the "road" as such... eying Thorgir... What do you think?... The thoughts carefully touching Thorgirs mind.. not to scare the drow...

Thorgirr had been around his share of empaths before, in fact, one of his few friends at Orthobbae had been mute, and had to converse by means of telepathy. While he felt queasy at the concept of having someone else's thoughts wandering around in his head, he was used to it and could converse telepathically. If he had to.

Well, roads are built for a reason. This will eventually lead somewhere, probably some city. Maybe dwarven, maybe drow. we don't know. But, it's probably our best bet. ...oh. Even though it's a small road, we should keep a lookout for bandits. But that goes without saying, doesn't it?"
