2006-10-29 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery raised a thick iron grey brow "Hey don look at me" he said grumpily pointing one long finger at Keyurg "he done and drunk yours an paid fer it t'boot"
2006-10-29 [Sylvia Rote]: ~giggles lightly into her drink as she takes another sip~
2006-10-29 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery winked at Sylvia, then got a whiskey for Zypher "tha'll be three coppers lad"
2006-10-30 [Ryuk Kannagi]: -hands Avery the coppers- Thank you -sips at the whiskey-
2006-10-30 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery smiled blandly, and limped away into the kitchen area once again muttering about the lack of a tip. The sounds of pots clanging drifted out from the Kitchen, followed by a few colourful curses as something large clattered to the floor*
2006-10-30 [Keyurg Kirosake]: ~ Keyurg sat at the bar and called for Avery ~ Avery, I have a present for you...
2006-10-31 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Walking in to the tavern she looks around a quietly takes a set at the bar looking around she waits for the bar tender to finish his arrends*
2006-11-01 [Elisha Kelly]: "Bah!" said Avery returning to the bar "what need ave I of gifts... " He stopped upon seeing the quiet lady sitting at the bar and grinned. He turned half away from her, licked his hand and run it over his hair to smooth it flat, before casually making his way over to her "a nice even'n to ye me lady" he said in a wide grin, showing off his brillantly white teeth "wha can I do ye for?"
2006-11-01 [Ryuk Kannagi]: -notices Avery's behavior whenever a women is around, he talked quiet enough for only Sylvia to hear- Little ladies man for a tender heh.
2006-11-01 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Smileing Elyia nodding her head in greating says * Good evening to you sir.I was wondering if there was any rooms avalble .I would perfer aprivate but if there is none I would gladely share aroom with one of the other weman.
2006-11-01 [Sylvia Rote]: ~smiles softly~ He's from a generation of Casanova's, I'm guessing.
2006-11-01 [Elisha Kelly]: "I am sure thar be at least one room available" Avery said scratching his chin thoughfully... "cost ye three silvers though"
2006-11-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: That sounds reasonable.I'l
2006-11-02 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery waggled his fingers at her waiting for the three silvers "payment in a'vance luv"
2006-11-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: * she handed him three silvers* Of curse here you are sir.How much would some bread wine and cheese cost while where at it if you do have some
2006-11-02 [Elisha Kelly]: "for you... a single silver sweetheart" he replied*
2006-11-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Blushing as she handed him another silver*Thank you
2006-11-02 [Elisha Kelly]: "now jus let me show ya to yer room" Avery said as he hobbled out from behind the bar "Then I'll get you tha grub"
2006-11-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Fallowing Avery* thank you
2006-11-02 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery made his way back down the stairs in an ungainly fashion, then made his way into the kitchen, where more clanging and banging was heard, as well as a few choice cuss words*
2006-11-02 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *As she made here way back down the stairs Elyria looked about the tavern again smiled and made her way to the bar and quietly sat down and waited for avery to return*
2006-11-02 [Elisha Kelly]: *The kitchen went silent for a few moments, before the banging and clanging started up again... then a short while later Avery hobbled out of the Kitchen carrying a tray with a tray with a bottle of wine, a platter of cheese and several thick slices of bread "ere ya go luv" he said carrying the tray towards her with great difficulty*
2006-11-02 [Ryuk Kannagi]: -laughs and nods his agreement to Sylvia- Personaly most women are to troublesome... You excluded of course, but thats why I choose not to flirt, less I be a bit bored or really interested... -he continues to watch Avery until the man went into the kitch, he kinda admired the man's obvious difference from himself, flirting so easily-
2006-11-04 [Sylvia Rote]: Well, I don't notice when guys flirt with me. All I notice is how they treat other people. ~finishes her whiskey~ Now, to pack!! ~stumbles off her stool~
2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: *The tavern door opened up ever so slightly as a young woman stepped through. A gust of wind from the outside blew her wavy red hair all about as she let the heavy door close on its own. She looked around the tavern, it was full of new faces and most definatly more busy than she had remembered. Nonetheless, she searched for a familiar face. When she didn't recognize anyone, she made her way past the numerous tables and stools. She chose to take a seat at the bar, letting her obviously heavy nap sack fall to the floor with a thud. It was louder than she expected and felt a little embarassed. She used a leather strap from her pockett to pull her long red hair back to reveal a bright-eyed freckled face.
2006-11-04 [Ryuk Kannagi]: -blinks and looks at Sylvia- Can a ghost get drunk?
2006-11-04 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery carefully placed the food laden tray down in front of Elyria "enjoy me lovely!" he said with a grin before hobbling over to the freckled lass with the heavy sack "An what, my sweet can I do fer ye?" he said not believing his luck... so many pretty young lasses about*
2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: *The girl smiled cheerfully, "Ah, um, could I have a cup of water please?" she thought for a moment, "Where is the old barkeep? I have something for him."
2006-11-04 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery gave her a sharp look and went and got a glass of water " 'e is Away on business" He said returning with the girls water, and placing it in front of her*
2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: She took a sip of water, "That's too bad. I had a surprise for him. Oh, well. Perhaps another time. Are there any rooms open?"
2006-11-04 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery's cheeky grin returned "thar's always a room available fer a lovely young lass such as ye self!"
2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: Her cheeks blushed, "I am Helena, and you are?"
2006-11-04 [*(.Randi.)*]: Faíán came grumbling down. "Avery? I gave you the money you needed for a single room, but I didn't get a key!" She held out her hand to Avery, asking for a key. "Might I have it now? I am very tired, you know."
2006-11-04 [Sylvia Rote]: Sure I can, if I wish to be drunk.
2006-11-04 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery frowned at Faian "Tha's cause ye took off before I'd finished" Avery grumbled at her "Thars only so much an ole chap like meself can do ye know!" Avery drew out a key and handed it to her "Firs single room next ta the common room" he said stiffly*
2006-11-05 [*(.Randi.)*]: Faíán hugged Avery over the bar (which is very hard to do, you know) and thanked him before she walked upstairs to her common room.
2006-11-05 [Lothuriel]: Helena giggled, "you seem to be rather popular around here."
2006-11-05 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery chuckled as Faian released him and returned upstairs "Well I do seem ta ave a ways with tha lassies!" He said turning back to the charming redhead.*
2006-11-06 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *as Elyria nibbled on some cheese she giggled and took a swig of wine *
2006-11-11 [Juiced]: *lelan walks in and takes a quick look around and then walks over to the bar and sits down* barkeep do you have some water?
2006-11-11 [Lothuriel]: *Helena looked to the man next to her. She gave a quick grin and then looked down at her glass of water*
2006-11-11 [Juiced]: *lelan sat there pondering about where to get some infomation next and where to earn some money*
2006-11-12 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery grabbed a glass from under the bar, then ladled some nice clean fresh water into it before handing it over to the newcomer "ere you go" he said with a wide grin*
2006-11-12 [Ryuk Kannagi]: I wonder how that works.... -shrugs- Well lets get going then.
2006-11-12 [Sylvia Rote]: ~picks up her large bag of purses~ Yes..where to?
2006-11-12 [Ryuk Kannagi]: I thought I told you.....
2006-11-12 [Sylvia Rote]: yes..but are we getting orses?
2006-11-12 [Ryuk Kannagi]: Ah yes yes I forgot -chuckles- Lets get some horses.
2006-11-12 [Juiced]: *takes the glass and downs it quickly seting the glass back on the bar table* barkeeep i need to ask you something *pulls out a picture and holds it in view* have you seen this man at all *the man looks to be in his late 40s with some faceal features that Lelan has*
2006-11-13 [Sylvia Rote]: (you'll have to create a wiki, pal)
2006-11-13 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery reached out and took the picture, looking at it for a long time, before handing back the young man "'e family o'yours?"
2006-11-15 [Juiced]: in a way yes
2006-11-15 [Elisha Kelly]: "an fer wha purpose do ye seek this fellow?"
2006-11-15 [Juiced]: *Lelan closes his eyes for a moment and then opens them* he's my father i'm looking foir him to ask him some questions about my mother
2006-11-15 [Elisha Kelly]: "oh.. " Avery said with a wry grin "well in tha case I might well ave seen this chap about tha place" Avery watched the lad carefully, before continuing "I seen a chap vera much like tha one a wee while back now, said 'e 'ad business in town 'ere somewheres"
2006-11-16 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: * Elyria quietly got up from the bar and started for the stairs as quietly as she could*
2006-11-16 [Juiced]: where would this town be and how far from here
2006-11-16 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery loaughed out loud "My Lad... your in tha town! I know we look a wee bit rural ere on tha outskirts, but we are still part o the town nonetheless!"
2006-11-16 [Juiced]: ahh so i see and where might be the last time you've seen him
2006-11-17 [The Red Baron]: (in walked a Wood Elf, soaking wet because of the rain) He stood by the counter, and said in an audible voice, but to no one in particular, "A nice warm bowl of vegetable soup, kindly; and if you have an apple or two, my unicorn outside could use them."
With that, he moved to a secluded table, and began tending to an arrow sticking out of his leg...
2006-11-18 [Sylvia Rote]: ~sees the arrow~ Can i have that?
2006-11-18 [The Red Baron]: (removes the arrow, applies some betadine, compresses the wound with gauze, and bandages it) Sure, here you go. (hands Sylvia the arrow)
2006-11-18 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery raised a thick bushy brow at the newcomer before turning back to Lelan "come see me later lad, we'll discuss it then, in a more private locale m'thinks" He then ambled into the kitchen, where once again the patrons could hear odd bangs and clangs sounding within*
2006-11-18 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya slipped inside the door and headed over to an empty seat at the bar. She looked around for a bar tender and saw none. The feline spun on her stool and surveyed the room, waiting on the bar tender to return.
2006-11-19 [Sylvia Rote]: ~shrugs~ meh...one not arrow is not very handy...unless you have a bow to go with it?
2006-11-19 [The Red Baron]: "I can help you make one," the wood elf said as he unslung his bow and showed it to Sylvia. "I made it myself, arrows shot by it have killed many things, from small birds and woodland creatures to heavy Undead cavalry and red dragons."
2006-11-20 [Elisha Kelly]: *The commotion in the Kitchen suddenly stopped, as Avery re-emerged holding a tray of food. He limped over to the wood elf, and placed the tray down and held his hand out saying "tha'll be 3 coppers me lad!"
2006-11-20 [Elisha Kelly]: **Outside the clouds began to clear and a smudge of light on the horizon signalled that dawn would soon be upon them**
2006-11-20 [The Red Baron]: "Copper?" the Wood Elf was perplexed, "I'm afraid I'm all out of copper, but do accept some rare Erdalan gemstones. Ah! The fantastic realm of Erdalan; destroyed long ago by the Death Knight armies... Erdalan was magnificent for one thing; its subterranean ponds whose bottoms were so rich in minerals that they produced gemstones almost spontaneously.
He sighed with longing, "We did what we could, but the Undead were simply too many. Erdalan was destroyed, and with it, its gem-producing lakes."
He handed Avery a handful of gemstones and turned his attnetion to his soup.
2006-11-20 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya cocked her brow at the wood elf and shrugged, “Excuse me, bar keep?” She asked as she flagged the iron haired man down, “Could you please get me a fire water? It has been a long day.” She turned 'round to face the bar once more and let out a small huff.
2006-11-20 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery looked at the gems perplexed, before handing them all back to the elf "These ain't no good to me lad, tha meal's on th house... an get yerself some coin yer don wannabe flashing those gems about, yer likely to attract some unwanted attention!" With that said, Avery made his way over to the bar, where a young anthro woman had claimed his attention "What ho! I havna seen one o your kinda about fer a vera long time lass" he said as he poured a shot of fire water "Tha'll be three coppers my sweet"
2006-11-20 [moonscale]: Elysia entered and sat next to Kileaiya. She scowled at the flirtatious bartender and placed a single small coin on the table. "An Elderberry." she ordered curtly. "I've been thinking," she murmured to her neighbor. "There is something wrong with Elysia. I got this feeling that someone or something is affecting her actions, or maybe her thoughts. I think I would have detected an obvious curse, but I sense nothing of the kind. It may simply be something foreign to me. Have you noticed anyhing of the sort? It may be something subtler as well. As you yourself are a powerful magic user I thought you might have noticed something I missed."
2006-11-20 [The Red Baron]: "Thank you," the Elf drained the bowl, left his seat, went to the bar, and continued gratefully, "Name's Alissius Nalaron, Lieutentat Alissius Nalaron of the Woodland Watchers of Varastria; at your service. I've been travelling long and hard; you did unto me a good deed, now I am in your debt. Name your boon and you will not find me ungrateful. As for unwanted attention, I can handle that very well." he patted the scabbard in which his sword rested.
2006-11-20 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya winked at the roguish bar keep, and pulled out her coin pouch. “That’d be because you won’t find another one like me.” She said playfully as she pulled 3 copper from the purse and handed them over to Avery. She smiled at him before turning her attention to Liura. Kileaiya nodded at Liura, “She said she physically couldn’t rid herself of the diary, it seems like some type of persuasion. And she said she wanted to trust me, but couldn’t. It may be some type of lingering magic that effects her perception. She seems awfully paranoid at she refuses to entertain the possibilty that you will not hurt her.”
2006-11-21 [Elisha Kelly]: *With a quick wink at kileaiya, Avery turned his regard back to the tall and somewhat earnest elf "So yer 'andy with a sword then are ye lad, or is it tha I be the lad?" Avery chuckled as he poured a goldenberry wine for Luira. Then while waiting for the elf's reply he placed it before her and snatched up the coin she had left and bit into it, making sure it was genuine gold before tucking it away in his coin pouch.*
2006-11-21 [The Red Baron]: "I'm 327 years old," Alissius replied, "My people usually live for about 1000-1500 years on average, so this makes me rather young by Varastrian standards. What about you?"
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: * Elyria came down the stairs in a rather plain blue dress stretched for a minute*"Good morning all.*She said with a smile and took a seat at the bar*Good morning Avery. May I have some grapes please? *Putting three silvers on the counter she said*And here is payment for the room to night
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *As he walked in walked in he gazed around the room and begain walking to the young lady in the blue dress*Hello Elyria.
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *as elyria turned her eyes became wide and she wispered*Albio
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Albion Smiled *Yes Lady sister I'm here father sent me to find you and make sure you don't get in to any danger while your out* As he put his hand on his chin he said* oh how did he put it oh yes finding your self * then taking a seat next to Elyria he said *Bar keep is there a room available *Motioning to Elyria* preferably next to this lady’s room
2006-11-21 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery chuckled at the Elf's candour "well I'll still be callin ye lad then, as fer meself" he said cheekily "I be auld fer a man, to auld if it must be known, so ye better mind yer manners youngin!" he turned still chuckling to himself and scooped up the silvers Elyria had left and put them in his coin pouch "No if ye'll fergive me kind sir " he said to the elf "I had best be gettin back ta work, this place don run itself ye know" and with that he hobbled into the kitchen were once more the banging and clanging was to be heard*
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Elyria turned to Albion*You can't be seriouse the whole reason I left the kingdom in the first place was to get away from you and the guards!
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *As Albion leaned in he smirked*Now you know you don't mean that my lady sister. Besides *he said as sat up strait again*as far as I am concerned you can become the public whore of this town if that’s what it takes to find your self I'm just here to make sure your not killed or maimed ect. and to escort you home after your done frolicking around the countryside .
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: You would just love it if I Became a whore. Something else to tell father.*the turning in her chair she stared at the bar *And I know my legion miss me but there warriors they be all right.*Elyria sighed*How long until father sends the whole army after me?
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Albion placed his arms around his sisters shoulders and gave her a little shake*come on cheer up of course their all right. *Then sitting up again*hopefull
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Elyria smiled*I knew there was a reason you took the job I bet you gave a big speech in front of father about how you would protect my virtue and every thing*she said as she gave a light laugh and looked around the bar*It isn't a bad spot is it *just the wood elf at the bar caught her eye as she leaned toward Albion she whispered have you ever seen that elf be for?
2006-11-21 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Albion took a quick glance at the wood elf*no I haven't
2006-11-22 [moonscale]: Liura considered Kileaiya's observations. "That does seem to account for her contradictory behavior." She pulled a small book out of her sleeve and leafed through it. "You are a potion maker are you not? I believe there is a way we can help clear your friends mind and body from any lingering magics." she suggested, looking up briefly, "It can be risky if there are too many spells on her but she seems to be naturally healthy..." ahe continued paging through the dry leaves as she muttered to herself.
2006-11-22 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Elyria whispered back to her brother*No have not I thought you would since we have trade agreements with a wood elf kingdom and you have been to the trade meetings.
2006-11-22 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Albion laughed and said*Just because we have trade agreements with a wood elf kingdom does not mean he is the master tradesmen nor that he is from the some kingdom you silly girl*nudging Elyria*Besides didn't father try to match you up with a wood elf prince once* he said as he laughed again*
2006-11-24 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya gave Liura a nod, “I am indeed a potion maker and I understand the damage spells can do, but I do not think she has many on her. Just the persuasion magic, I believe. Anything you need made, potion wise, I am happy to help.”
2006-11-24 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Elyria turned to Albion and narrowed her eyes*Stop that its not my fault that father only allows me to know about kingdoms we have treaties with.
2006-11-28 [The Red Baron]: (Alissius decides to go outside and feed his unicorn the two apples)
2006-11-28 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Besides if he didn't try to use me as a trading piece to seal treaties all the time I wouldn't be hear no would I *Said Elyria still scowling at Albion *
2006-11-29 [moonscale]: "This is just supposed to clear onens mind," Liura shrugged. "I don't think she's bespelled either. I never really figured out what this was good for, but I don't think it can hurt. Its relatively harmless- mostly mint." she frowned at the page and passed it to Kileaiya.
2006-11-29 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya looked over the potion recipe, “I recognise this. I can brew it up no problem. I have all the ingredients in the shop.”
2006-12-04 [The Red Baron]: Alissius walked back in with a saddlebag, went to the bar, and asked the bartender, "A Mug of your heaviest caffeinated beverage please."
2006-12-04 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: *Then with a sigh she said*Oh well it doesn't matter does it?
2006-12-08 [The Red Baron]: "Oi! Where's that caffeine! You're not growing the coffee beans in there, are you?"
2006-12-08 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery returned to the bar with a bit of a grumble, and handed a hot mug of steaming coffee to Alissus "ere you go ole boy, that'll be 2 coppers"
2006-12-08 [The Red Baron]: (hands you 10 copper from the saddlebag and one silver) For my meal, and a compensation. Found 'em in my saddlebag, luckily.
2006-12-08 [Elisha Kelly]: "thankye" Avery smiled, and the coins soon disappeared into his coin pouch*
2006-12-10 [moonscale]: "Good, if you do not mind I will leave this book in your care while I return to the watchhouse." Liura drained her cup with a nod to Kileiya, departed.
2006-12-10 [The Red Baron]: Alissius drank his coffee slowly, "Anyone knows of a job opportunity in these parts?"
2006-12-12 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery nodded at the elf "the guards are always looking for new recruits" he smirked a he said the word new, but did not elaborate*
2006-12-12 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya nodded at Liura and took a sip of her fire water.
2006-12-12 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: At this Elyria rased her eyebrow and turned to her brother "Sounds like a jobe for you Albionn no?"She seid smileing then turning to Avery "Is there any work for a woman in these parts"
2006-12-12 [The Red Baron]: "Rapid turnover I see," Alissius replied knowingly, "Always seeking new arrow fodder? Fresh meat for the grinder so to speak? They might find me a tough nut to crack. I've been through quite a lot."
2006-12-13 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery seemed to swell slightly as he realised he was now the center of attention "Well our town guards can be a tough lot, aye they can, and you young missy, I am in need of a barmaid I am, these ole bones o mine need a break now an then!"
2006-12-13 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyuria smiled and seid "Is there any special talents I need to be a barmaid?"
2006-12-13 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen entered the tavern and glanced around, her eyes widening briefly at the sight of the new bartender. Nevertheless she approached the bar and tapped a silver coin on the counter top.*
"Herbal tea please," she said as the barkeep looked at her, "And I am looking for a male feline by the name of Jared. He told me that I could find him here. Would you happen to know where he is?"
2006-12-13 [Danboo]: *walked in and said* Yay, I'm finally back
2006-12-13 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery gave her a casual grin "Ain't 'eard o no Jared Love, but we could go an search upstairs.... together" Avery winked at her, as he took up her silver piece and returned 3 coppers to her in change, he then turned to Elyuria "right then youngin, get yourself in the kitchen out bak and whip this fine lady up some 'erbal tea... get to it get to it! can't expect to do everythin meself!"
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: *Daniel responds with a"Yes Ma'am" and walks fastly to the kitchen*
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: *Daniel Starts getting the herbal tea ready*
2006-12-14 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery raised a brow and the young fellow who had presumed the responsibility of the the tea, and shrugged he spoke to Elyuria again "don worry bout it love, seems the young fella has taken it upon hisself to make tha tea... no idea oo 'e is though"
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: (oh sorry thought you were talking to me, and i work here)
2006-12-14 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen raised an eyebrow at Avery's suggestion but otherwise her expression remained unchanged.*
"After my tea," she replied, "once that is done, your help would be greatly appreciated."
2006-12-14 [Kileaiya]: Kileaiya scooped up the potions book and with a nod to Avery exited the tavern.
2006-12-14 [The Red Baron]: "Pish!" Alissius dismissed the matter of their being a tough lot, "I've fought packs of red dragons, columns of Undead heavy cavalry, legions of Dark Elves, and many other foes back with the Woodland Watchers; I can handle a town's simple once-in-a-whil
He took a sip of his coffee and removed his hood, revealing a scar runnign along his forehead, "Yep, there was lots of action in the Woodland Watchers back in the Great Undead Wars."
2006-12-14 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen smirked at the elf's bragging, accepting her tea with a slight nod of her head.*
"Yes, much action indeed," she remarked, "I was kept quite busy. Too bad the pay wasn't as plentiful as the bodies."
2006-12-14 [The Red Baron]: "Red dragons do take quite a pounding to go down," he stated matter-of-fact
2006-12-14 [Yuriona]: "Well of course they do," Ranewen replied dryly, "Dragons are known for their tough scales as well as their hoards." *She sipped at her tea.*
2006-12-14 [The Red Baron]: "You know Undead cavalry? They can fight for weeks on end, they don't need rest, they don't need food, they don't know fear, they don't know pain, terrible. They cost me most of my friends." His mood turned sour, "Then suddenly, when that happens, all the spoils and victories in the world don't amount to crap."
2006-12-14 [Yuriona]: *Ranewen shrugged nonchalantly*
"I guess you did not have any clerics among your troops," she noted, "They could have easily turned or defeated Undead. even dipping your weapons in holy water would have helped." *She set down her teacup, laying her hand on the cloth wrapped object she had with her.*
"Still, they all end up in the ground as we all will some day," she stated flatly, "I have never understood those who place riches before their own mortality. It won't do much good other than to buy a fancier casket. Now if you will excuse me, I have a parcel to deliver." *She got up from the bar and moved towards the stairs to the upper levels of the inn.*
2006-12-14 [The Red Baron]: "Clerics? Nah! Never gave much thought to these matters," he said almost to no one, "Off you go, see to your business."
His thoughts went back to a better time, a time when Varastria was a happier land, when his friends were still above the ground. "Ashes to ashes and dust to dust," he said solemnly as he drained his coffee.
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: *Daniel Brings the tea to avery*
2006-12-14 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery raised an eyebrow at the lad* "An whats yer name youngin?"
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: *daniel looked at avery and said*"Daniel ma'am"
2006-12-14 [The Red Baron]: "Any chance there's a vacant room around here?"
2006-12-14 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery frowned at the boy "Do I look like a ma'am to you boy!" with a grumpy huff he turned around to The elf who had addressed him "there be a room or two available, cost ye three silvers a night though"
2006-12-14 [Danboo]: *Daniel looked sorry*"Sorry sir, my eyes are still messed up."
2006-12-14 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery glanced back over his shoulder and nodded "well then that's alright then ain't it"
2006-12-15 [The Red Baron]: Alissius rummaged through his saddlebag and handed him the coins, one after the other, "I'll go crash now, g'night."
2006-12-15 [Cia_mar]: *an apparently young elven girl walks in and looks around*
2006-12-15 [The Red Baron]: Alissius looks in her direction, scans her, then proceeds to leave, dismissing the idea that he saw in her familiar features, attributing it to tiredness.
2006-12-15 [Cia_mar]: *notices a person leaving.. he looked familiar and even had a fleeting look on his face that said so.. taking a chance Cia positions herself so that he will have to make a real effort to get by with out looking at her and asking her to move out of the way....all the time racking her brain for where she knew him from...*
2006-12-15 [The Red Baron]: "Do you mind?" Alissius asked levelly, "Kindly let me get to my room."
2006-12-15 [Cia_mar]: *suddenly it comes to her... his voice, the accent.. *
"actually i do mind.. "she pauses pitching her voice to be heard only by his ears ..."that is no way to greet ones fellow Varastrian... no matter time of war or peace!"... *she softened her words with a smile hoping that he was who she thought*
2006-12-15 [The Red Baron]: Alissius cleared his tired brain, "Of course! The features! Everything is Varastrian about you!" his tone lightened, "War? We've not been at war for quite some time now. You obviously haven't been in Varastria for some time."
2006-12-15 [Cia_mar]: smiling she shook her head... "no i have not... i sort of got the wonderlust and took to the road as a gypsy of sorts.. it suited me though and i have learned much that i do not think i would have if i had stayed home" she looks at him questioningly " so th e war ended... how did it faire for us?"
2006-12-15 [The Red Baron]: "We won," he said proudly, "But the Undead allied with the red dragons, they took a terrible toll on our boys; especially in the Woodland Watch. In the end, we stood triumphant. Let every invader know that any attack on Varastria is painfully expensive, in lives and resources."
2006-12-15 [Cia_mar]: "i had many friend in The Watch when i was younger... "smiles sadly then shakes her head... "tell me what are you doing here in this place... have you too left Varastria?..." then takes note of his tired look... " or have i just interupted your date, with your pillow? " *she laughs softly tilting her head down, eyes shining with mirth*
2006-12-15 [Elisha Kelly]: *Avery shook his head at the impatience of the Elf and took it upon himself to interupt the conversation "Oi! you forgot ye room key, and no skirts up in the rooms, unless you pay fer a double!" He held the small room key out in front of him "Last door on the right straight from the stairs."
2006-12-16 [The Red Baron]: Alissius took the key, "Praised be He who never forgets." Returning back to the woman, he said, "Well, I'm just doing some travelling myself and at the moment I felt like crashing. I can hold out against sleep much longer if I wanted to."
2006-12-16 [Cia_mar]: Cia snickers under her breath trying not to laugh outloud...
"No m'lady, that will not be necessary though i would very much like a meal and a bed for later...and not his..." she smiles easily as she reaches for her money purse to pay
2006-12-16 [The Red Baron]: "Allow me," Alissius offered.
2006-12-16 [Cia_mar]: *cia looks up surprised* "well, ok, if you insist..."
2006-12-16 [The Red Baron]: "Order your meal if you want; I recommend the soup, it's excellent."
2006-12-16 [Cia_mar]: well then soup it is! *grins broadly*
2006-12-16 [The Red Baron]: (pulls a chair at a table for her) "Come, tell me, how's life been outside the forest these days?"
2006-12-16 [Cia_mar]: *sighs as she sits down* feels good to be off my feet...
well for the most part it seems that things are good... for other smaller places i have heard rumors of trouble and unrest... it is hard to decern how much is rumor and which is truth... so i travel from town to town as a bard, learning what i can and sometimes it is good info, though *she smiles sneakily* for a good price i can tell a good "story" too
2006-12-16 [The Red Baron]: "Right," he smiled as he say down, "Tell me a story and if it's good you might get something out of a red dragon's treasure hoard."
2006-12-17 [*(.Randi.)*]: Faíán walked up to the bar and asked, "What's for breakfast?"
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion let out a booming laugh "Well Elyria it seems you are a serving wench" Then lowering his voice a bit "Not ecsactly the grand traveling singer any more are we?"
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: *cia takes out her Lute and begins to tune it while thinking of a good story...*
"perhaps one that i learned from another bard who traveled in the far north... she heard many tales and this one always had a feeling of home to it for me..."
she says all this while tuning and once satisfied with the sound begins to hum a little while strumming ...
i will make a wiki with the song in it.. i do not wish to take up alot of comment space with it...
...go to: cia's bardic efforts
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: At this Elyria stood up and towered over her sitting brother"Albion if I wanted to I could walk out of the bar and you would never see me again and no amount of trakeing would help you"
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion snorted as he stood up from the bar towering almost 5 in. over Elyria he looked down at her then with a swift movement he grabbed her arm and pulled her close then whispering in her ear he said “I have been tracking you for 2 years now. I even tracked you though the troll lands I will not let you escape again. You can be a great singer or a serving wench it does not matter to me but you will remember that you are the crowned princess of Arien Fëfalas and that your legions are counting on you to return.Besides
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria scowled at her brother."only two years.Wow I've been jone for over twenty and now father sends some one."
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: cia sings with a clear strong voice..."In the forest of the northland..." she has a presence about her as she sings... her face loses it's timidness and a reall inner beauty shines forth
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion smiled” Now lady sister your an important part of Arien Fëfalas' future .Did you really think you where alone the whole time you where gone" then sitting back down he said "Lady sister you where being watched as soon as you set foot out of our borders. Though you probably never saw them they where watching you can you guess who they where?"He said as his smile widened.
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: Alissius enjoys the song as, surrendering his ears and mind to it...
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smiled and shook her head "Damn sprits"then she seid as she looked down at Albion "No wonder why father sent you Queen Tamuríl would not allow her legoins help any other"
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: as she sings images of a beautifull white maiden, strong an d pround are conjured to mind, and the plight of Alexi when his love is revealed as a werewolf queen...her secret revealed and him no longer able to see her... Cia ends the song with Alexi left to search for his love through the snow laden forests, always searching, though never finding...
finished singing, Cia looks down shyly and fiddles with her lute to re adjust some imagined flaw....
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion smiled ”Let just say me and her majesty have an understanding. Anyway go find you happiness."The
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "That was brilliant!" Alissius praised, "Our Etaljian cousins have a different version though. Now time for me to keep my promise."
(he rummaged through his saddlebag and extracted a cloak made of golden threads) "I hope you find this to your liking."
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: cia's eyes nearly pop uot as she sputters in surprise adn unbelief!
"that is ... oh... wow..." she stammers over herself trying to think what could have possibly prompted such a generous gifting
" you are so kind..." she blushes" but it was just a song... um not even one of the best out there.. i mean... " she tries to think of a way to say thank you but no words seemed to come to mind other than stammering...
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "A song out straight out of the mouth of a Varastrian bard is worth a thousand times more than this."
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria scowled and seid mocingly "May be I will brother who knows this is a bar I just might have to much to drink"
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: she blushes and graciously acecepts the gift..." has it been so long for you since you have heard the voice of another Varastrian?" she looks at Alissius wondering what tales his adventures have to tell
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Albion’s eyes flashed with a fierceness as he rose and said "You wouldn't dare.Lady sister Its one thing to go woundering around the country side but its another to become a common whore"
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: cia glances nervously at the arguring pair by the bar... their voices had raised to become audible and that last remark when she heard it, made her wince ....
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "Haven't heard the voice of a Varastrian who wasn't issuing an order, in pain, dying, or asking for help on the field. This sends me back to the days of the festivals. I wish we had more Varastrians here, to liven the place up."
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria smerked as she said"It was your idea brother ."She seid with a luagh"besides I never seid anything about getting payed."
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: 'Well then go and have your men "Albion seid as he slapped her behind.
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: Elyria turned in shock"Albion!"
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: hearing the pain in his voice over the ill fates that had guided him so far in life, Cia's heart softened a bit and she placed her hand over one of his in a gesture of empathy
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "We get by, it's not easy protecting the woods we know as calm and joyous, but at least such things pay off. Send me against anything except those Undead heavy cavalry, they have an eerie presence around them."
2006-12-18 [*~`Lady of Avalon`~*]: "Yes"Elyria said with a touch of annoyence
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: shudders... i do remember hearing tales of the undead... they were told to the gypsy children to keep them from wondering too far from the encampments...
cia chuckled and yet still shudered a bit too from her own memory of the tale
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "Did she tell them that the Undead used that hand as their insignia? Their black bony hand on a field red is something that can't be easily shaken."
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: wel i knew she was old... but i had no idea...!!!
2006-12-18 [The Red Baron]: "Forget them, pray they never return."
2006-12-18 [Cia_mar]: "hear hear! " cia agrees
2006-12-18 [Danboo]: Daniel walks to the kitchen and sees the pile of dishes starting to grow so decides to do the dishes
2006-12-19 [*(.Randi.)*]: Faíán waits near the bar, listening intently.
2006-12-19 [Danboo]: *starts humming a song while doing the dishes*
2006-12-19 [Remial]: Ralk ambled down the stairs, looking for a face he recognized.
2006-12-19 [Cia_mar]: "Shall i sing another song then? perhaps a traditionsl one..." *she tunes her lute again and the begind to sing a baudy song called "bedlam boys"....*
2006-12-19 [Remial]: the song brought a smile to Ralk's face. "Been a while since I've heard a good lutist," he said in her general direction.
2006-12-19 [Cia_mar]: *bows head in acknowlegment.
i know a fav..."Seven Drunken Nights"...
begins to play...and then sings:
"As I went home on Monday night as drunk as drunk could be
I saw a horse outside the door where my old horse should be
Well, I called me wife and I said to her: Will you kindly tell to me
Who owns that horse outside the door where my old horse should be?
Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk you silly old fool,
So drunk you can not see
That's a lovely sow that me mother sent to me
Well, it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more
But a saddle on a sow sure I never saw before..."
2006-12-19 [Cia_mar]: she finishes the song and then yawns...
2006-12-20 [The Red Baron]: Alissius' elbow was on the table, his head nodding slightly, clearly he has dozed off...
2006-12-20 [Cia_mar]: cia puts down her lute and smiles... then taps him gently on his arm... " you best go to your room... i think it is past your bedtime"
2006-12-20 [The Red Baron]: "Go away, Alexei! I don't have your werewolf queen here," he mumbled in his sleep.
2006-12-20 [Cia_mar]: cia chuckles to herself... and pokes his arm abit harder....* wake up! you need to find your bed!!!
2006-12-20 [The Red Baron]: wakes up, rather drowsy, "What?"
