Are you Shor about this? (Zenke)

Post by Orgoth on Thu Mar 07, 2019 8:59 am

It was late in Zadartis as a lone figure trudged along one of the city's main streets. The figure wore a hooded cloak, with a harness over it that carried a bow and quiver. The figure reached the fountain that marked the center of town, and stopped to look around, pulling down her hood in the process. The figure was young woman, and Eldari. She had her brown hair tied back, and her green eyes glinted in the light of a nearby torch. Faylandrea Shor sighed as she looked around. She needed to find a place to stay for the night, and soon. The journey back had been busier than normal, as if every bandit crew ever had decided to show up just as she was heading home. Now she was just tired and hungry, and she was headed to her preferred inn to solve these issues.

Fayla knew the most direct route would take her through a side street notorious for crime, but she was far too tired to care. Ideally, she would make it through without incident, but much like the rest of her journey and indeed her life, things didn't go smoothly at all for Fayla Shor. It started when she entered the side street and heard movement from behind and in front. She sighed in resignation as a hooded figure stepped in front of her, barring her way in what she imagined was supposed to be an ominous manner. She glanced over her shoulder to see another two figures step out of the shadows, grinning triumphantly. Fayla shook her head in annoyance before turning back to stare a hole through the first man.

"Seriously? After the trip I've just had? Unreal." The man grinned as he slowly approached her. "It's okay sweetie. We'll help you relax and... take a load off." The men behind Fayla laughed coldly, but the Eldari just rolled her eyes. "Did you think of that all on your own? Or did you all have to put your pea-brains together to come up with that crap?" The man's grin vanished and was replace by a look of mild anger. Fayla had a habit of talking her way into people's bad books very quickly, and she was happy to note that she still had the gift. The man continued to approach until he was almost in striking distance. "Look kid, I don't think you understand what's happening here. There's three of us and only one of you. So here's the deal. Either you give us what money you have, or you get a knife in you and we take what we want and leave you for the rats. Your choice."

The man produced a knife from under his cloak and stepped forward again. Right into her range Fayla thought. She grinned evilly at the man as he hammered the final nail in his coffin. Although she doubted he would get one really. "What are you smiling at?" Fayla's expression suddenly turned serious, surprising the man for a moment. "Oh, nothing. It's just... that's not a knife." Fayla suddenly draw her sword from under her cloak and pointed it at the man in front of her. "This is a knife." The man suddenly shrunk back in terror. "B-B-But, that's a sword!" Fayla looked at her sword, Grace, as if only seeing it for the first time. "Huh, so it is." Then, without warning, Fayla spun and sliced the man's arm off at the shoulder. He fell to the ground screaming. "Aaargh! My arm!" He then yelled to his goons. "What are you waiting for you apes?! Kill her!" Fayla turned around to face the two other goons. One had a mace and the other wielded a nasty-looking sickle. Fayla sank into a combat stance and smiled at them. "Alright then, me against you two. Though you might wanna get some more men to make it a fair fight." The goons gestured behind her, and she glanced over her shoulder to see three more goons approaching from behind. Fayla smiled in full bravado. "That's more like it!"

Re: Are you Shor about this? (Zenke)

Lilian walked through the quiet streets of Zadartis. She would be resplendent in her white armor if it wasn't covered in mud, and she needed a bath. Rivers and streams had not done the trick. It was late, she was tired and she had no idea how to inn. She'd expected to arrive much earlier, but was delayed by heanta. Always heanta. They cut off her arm, tried to kill her in a forest, and made her arrive to cities she knew nothing about late at night. She grumbled under her breath as she stalked through the streets.

"Well, look on the brightside, your alive, and your in Zadartis. And probably going to end up sleeping on the street at this rate. Or meet another heanta. Ha." She said to herself. As she walked, she heard a noise, and stopped to listen. She swore she heard a man say in hushed tones, "What are you smiling at?" A few seconds later, she heard screaming. Painful screaming. Lilian tore down the street, and as she passed an alley she spotted a bunch of men surrounded the cloaked form of a girl with a sword almost the same size as her. Lilian slid to a stop, noticing the man with the severed arm, and three more thugs round the corner on the stranger.

"STOP EVILDOERS!" She announced, and the men looked at her. "Ha. I've always wanted to do that." One of the men glared at her. "Piss off, this aint nothing to do with you!" Lilian slid her crossbow from her back. "Six guys surrounding a girl in an alley? Na your right that's not my business." She said, cocked her crossbow and shot one of the men behind the girl in the gut. "Bitch you'll pay for that!" one of them men shouted as his buddy fell down screaming. The two men closest to her turned and lunged at her. "Now it's my business!" She said smiling brightly.

"You'll die before you reload that crossbow!" One of them shouted as he came in swinging. Lilian sidestepped her attacker, slid the lever on the crossbow forwards and back in a swift motion, reloading it, and shot him in the back of the knee. He screamed, but swung around blade slashing. Lilian caught the blade with her metal hand and pulled it from his grasp. "What-" She threw the weapon away and smashed the butt of the crossbow into his nose. The second man rushed her, and before she could reload he smashed the crossbow from her grip with his mace. "My child!" Oblivion peircer bounced across the cobblestones, and she backpedaled as he took a second swing at her.

Lilian dodged his third swing, as lightning lit up around her hand. She stepped in and punched him in the side of the head and he spun away, collapsing to the ground twitching in pain. Lilian kicked him in the leg. "If you broke my crossbow I'll break you!" She said, and scooped up the weapon from the ground. And then kicked him again.

Fayla was getting excited at the odds before her. But before she could begin, a shout echoed through the street. Fayla looked in disbelief as a young girl stood nearby, hefting an expensive-looking crossbow. The girl yelled about evil-doers or something, but Fayla was just annoyed that this wannabe warrior was interrupting her fight. One the men told the girl to piss off, and Fayla agreed. "Yeah, back off kid. I've got these goons exactly where I want them." The men exchanged confused gazes, but they straightened up when the girl pinged one of them in the gut with a bolt from her weapon.

Fayla cursed loudly when two of the men charged the girl. "For the love of GrĂ¡inne." One of the men dropped with a bolt in his knee, and Fayla used the opportunity to plant the man in front of her square in the proverbials with a brutal punt, nearly lifting him out of his boots. The yelp alerted his friend, and he lunged at Fayla. The Eldari deftly side-stepped the swing of the brute and smashed him in the face with the pommel of her sword, breaking his nose. She then turned to see the girl kicking a man on the floor.

Fayla wiped her blade on her cloak as the miscreants gathered themselves up and fled, or hobbled away at least. She sheathed her weapon as she approached the kid and then folded her arms impatiently. "What the hell, kid? I was looking forward to that, after the journey I've had." Despite calling the girl "kid", Fayla then pouted like an eight-year-old. "What are you doing out this late anyway? Do your parents know you're out here?"

Lilian was surprised when the other girl told her to back off also, and seemed to be annoyed when Lilian distracted half the goons for her. After the fight, Lilian studied the crossbow as the thugs scampered away. fortunately for them, Oblivion piercer was a sturdy weapon, though she seen some scratches on the rail. Those thugs got lucky, anyone else and they probably would have all been killed but she was happy with a beating. If they were quick they could probably save their two wounded freinds. If not, the others might learn a lesson from their mistakes.

Lilian wasn't looking for a thank you but when the other girl came up and started giving out to her for helping, she tilted her head to the side and frowned. "Excuse me? You wanted them to beat you up in an alley?" She said, very confused. She studied the girl before her. They were the same height, and looked around the same age so she didn't understand why the other girl was calling her a kid.

Lilian was taken aback when the girl reacted like she was a fourteen year old school child running around the streets at night with a crossbow. She thought about giving her a smack in the head, but was also unsure what that would prove. Instead she took the high ground, and resorted to childish insults. "I'm pretty sure we're the same age, but if you want to keep calling me kid, I'll start calling you toddler because your pouting like one right now."

She let that sink in before continuing. "Did you go looking for trouble or something? What if someone else came along and got hurt? Even if your mad I stepped in to help you, I didn't do it just for you, but maybe thats not something you think about." She said.

Fayla laughed when the girl asked if she wanted to get beat up in an alleyway. "Of course not. But they obviously did, that's why they started on me." The girl questioned why Fayla was calling her a kid, when they appeared to be the same age. She suggested calling Fayla a toddler, because she was pouting. The Eldari was confused for a second, then realized that she still had her hood up. "Because you look really young. Maybe nineteen or twenty? I forget how fast you Humans age." Fayla then pulled back her hood to reveal her pointed ears. "I am actually forty years old."

The girl then asked if she went looking for trouble or something, and asked what she would have done if somebody else got hurt. Fayla shook her head in annoyance. "There shouldn't have been anybody else to get hurt. The chances of one girl wandering down Stab Alley is small, never mind two." Fayla looked the girl up and down. "What are you doing out here anyway? You look like you fell in a bog on the way here."

By this point, the adrenaline and excitement of a fight had worn off, and Fayla now just felt tired and hungry. She looked at the girl again, feeling bad for snapping at her, but didn't let it show on her face. "Look, I don't want an argument. At least, not at this hour." The Eldari yawned and looked towards the end of the street, beyond which lay her destination. "I'm heading to the inn just up the street here. That's where I was going when those goofs attacked me. This street just happens to be the most direct route." Fayla put her hood back up as it began to rain. "I'll cut you a deal. I presume you're looking for a place to stay too, so you can come with me and we can share a room instead of you wasting money on a different one. Then, once we're fed and rested, if you're still mad at me, we can beat each other up if you want. Sound good?" Fayla extended a hand to the girl. "We might want to get going though. I don't know about you, but my hair doesn't agree with moisture. I'm Fayla, by the way." Fayla glanced at the regalia the girl bore. "You a Knight-in-training or something?"

The girl pulled down her hood and revealed her face, saying she was fourty years old. Lilian wasn't sure, but she though she remembered something about Eldari aging slower than humans, meaning she was still considered quite young at fourty. Even so Lilian didn't push it. "Fine your older, just don't call me kid." She replied. The girl said there shouldn't have been anyone out, and Lilian frowned. "That doesn't really make sense. We're in the middle of a city. There's houses everywhere. Anyone could step out to see what's goingo on." She said.

The girl brought up her dirty armor, suggesting she fell in a bog. "Turns out travelling in white is a bad idea." She replied. The girl said she didn't want an argument and Lilian shrugged. "I never wanted one. Your the one who got mad because I helped. I didn't know you could handle yourself against six guys, and there's no force on Asmir that would stop me from helping people in danger." She said.

the girl offered to show her to an in and share a room with her. Then if she was still mad, they could sort it out. Lilian wasn't actually that mad, just a little annoyed about being condesended to. "Are you going to go down any more thug filled alleys?" She asked. But she smiled slightly and nodded. "You know what, sure." She said. "just as long as you remember i'm not a lost child. I don't need you to help me find my mommy or anything.."

Lilian started walking and the girl introduced herself. Lilian didn't think much of it, probably because her brain was starting to shut down unnessary functions, and nodded. "Thats a nice name. I'm Lilian Toral." Fayla asked if she was a knight in training, and Lilian shook her head. "That would be a squire. And no, i'm not. I'm a knight of Mondolin." She said. As they walked, Lilian examined Fayla. "Your a long way from home. I suppose I am too, but I'm on my way to Sunshield hold. What has you all the way out here?" She asked as they reached the inn. She couldn't wait to have a bath. And clean the mud off her armor.

Fayla gaped at Lilian when she mentioned that she was, in fact, a fully-fledged Knight, rather than a squire. "You're a full Knight? But you're so young! You must have some serious skills." Lilian questioned what Fayla was doing so far from home, mentioning that she was heading to Sunshield Hold. "I'm actually coming from home, heading for the Free Lands. I'm meeting someone in Zendar." They reached the inn and Fayla entered holding the door open for Lilian. "The Hold, huh? What brings you there?" The inn was relatively quiet, and Fayla just hoped that they had a room left. She turned to Lilian. "I'll sort out the room. Back in a second."

Fayla returned shortly after with a rusty looking key. "Okay, you probably want to get cleaned up. You go up to the room, and I'll sort us out something to eat." She handed the key to Lilian. "Any funny business and I'll kick your ass. It's up the stairs and the last room on the left." Once Lilian left, Fayla would arrive around fifteen minutes later with two bowls of steaming soup. She put them on the small end table and shrugged.

"We were too late to get any of the proper food, so soup will have to do. It's warm and non-lethal at least." Fayla chuckled to herself, remembering Kairi and her obsession with soup. "I actually have a friend in the Order who'd be loving this." Fayla sat on the bed and smiled warmly.

Lilian smiled confidently. "Well I like to think so." She replied to Fayla's shocked expression. When Fayla asked why she was going to the hold she said, "expanding my horizons. I was given leave to do with as I liked, and considering my hobbies mainly include fighting and enchanting I decided to skip the holidays and visit the Hold, to see if I can help out. Plus I have friends there."

when they entered the inn, Fayla offered to sort out the room and soon returned with a key. She then said she would go to get food, and told Lilian to head up. Lilian nodded in thanks and handed Fayla a few silver to cover her share of the meal and inn, the ended up to the room. She asked a serving girl for hot water for the bath. Undressed and removed her mechanical arm, leaving it on the bedside table. She didn't like getting it wet, no matter how slowly Aurilium rusted. By the time Fayla arrived with soup, Lilian had bathed and was now dressed in a short sleeved nightgown that fell well past her knees, and was sitting on the bed applying a salve to the stump of her left arm which had been chaffed red because she hadn't removed it since she'd left.

Lilian put the tin of salve to one side and grabbed her bag, pulling a small loaf of bread from it. Lilian offered it to Fayla. "Soup is great, but even better with bread. And don't worry I have more." She said smiling. Fayla mentioned she had a friend in the order who loved soup, and Lilian laughed. "I do too. They must all eat soup in sunshield hold." She said as she picked up her bowl of soup and balanced it in her lap and started to eat. "I prefere something more solid, but as my friend Kairi would say, 'its nutritious, easy to make and you can put anything in it.'" Lilian said.

Fayla took the bread and put it next to the soup on the nightstand, and stretched with a yawn. She chuckled when Lilian mentioned a friend of her own in the Hold who loved soup. "Yeah, makes sense." Fayla picked up her soup and began to eat. She looked at Lilian in surprise when she mentioned Kairi. "You know Kairi too? I was on a mission with her not too long ago. Nice lady. Really strong fighter, but she doesn't like fighting all that much."

Fayla downed a mouthful of soup and looked at what Lilian was doing. She seemed to be eating rather awkwardly. "I like her though, and she really does love her soup and-" Fayla suddenly stopped talking when she noticed that Lilian was lacking her left arm. "Wait a second, what happened to your arm? You had two when I saved you from those guys in the alleyway." Fayla looked from Lilian to the arm on the bedside table and back again in confusion. "Um... wut?"

Lilian nodded enthusiastically. "Yep I've known Kairi for a few years know. Its crazy that we'd meet here though, such a coincidence." Lilian said. She was about to go on, when Fayla noticed Lilian's arm was missing. "I technically save you but alright." She said before shrugging. "Do you wan't to know what how I lost the original one, or why its sitting on a table?" She asked with a cheeky smile. "Its an enchanted mechanical prosthetic designed by yours truly and her very talented little brother."

She explained. She put down her spoon, and reached out, placing her on the end of the arm. She wiggled the fingers. "Humans don't have access to the same levels of magical healing the eldari do, so when we lose a limb its kind of permanent unless we travel very far and pay lots of money." Lilian explained. "I found a solution. Also its badass and it makes my lightning abilities better." She smiled.

She didn't tell Fayla how she lost it, but if Fayla asked she would. However something just occured to her, and she'd almost forgotten because Fayla had distracted her with her question. "So, you know Kairi. How about a boy named Rex?" She asked, watching her reaction before smiling. "Your Faylandria Shor aren't you! Rex told me your freind's with a Heanta! Is that true?" She asked. She'd met two heanta now, three if you counted the dead one. One was a ruthless monster, the other she wasn't quite sure about, but the girl hadn't attacked her so it was a start.
