    Default The Sea of Starry Night [closed]

    There is a tense silence as the two groups of adventurers square off ...


    The half-orc rattles his flail restlessly while a gaudily-dressed ranger stands ready by his side. A human fighter stands beside them, his longbow drawn back and ready to fire. Small flames flicker at his arrow's tip.

    Behind them, a heavily armored human carries an unconscious robed girl in his arms, flanked by an elf and a gnome. The elf wields a rapier and main-gauche; the gnome holds her crossbow locked and loaded, ready to fire. In the very back is a small halfling holding a glowing spear that illuminates the area.

    A quartet of dancing lights swarms distractingly in front of this formidable party.


    Thirty feet away a lizardman blocks the center of the passage with bared teeth and sharp claws. The replilian humanoid hisses threateningly as he stands protectively in front of a battered and bloody dwarf, who struggles to his feet and readies a massive sword that seems to be coated with some kind of black ichor.

    Behind them stands an exceptionally tall and fair woman with long, straight white hair. Her regal appearance is marred only by stringy webbing that dangles from her robes and arms. A pair of elf twins stands nearby, literal mirror images of each other.

    Almost unnoticed at first is a small gnome rogue wielding a scaled-down shortsword. Scarlet blood drips down his arm from a nearly foot long laceration.

    Though battered and bloody, this group of adventurers is clearly experienced and battle-hardened and not to be trifled with.


    Seconds tick away as each side waits for the other to make the first move ...

    Halfling, Into the East

    The Halfling in the middle of the bunch shifts uneasily, peering around a few of his companions' waists to see the other group.

    His blueish garments are whole, though certainly not clean, and he seems uninjured.

    We outnumber them, but I still don't know if we can afford a fight... but it's not up to me. I'm just here to follow.

    He hoists the spear a little higher, watching the other group carefully.

    Well dammit, somebody's gotta talk.

    Female gnomish rogue, East group

    The crossbow-wielding gnome's eyes widen as she takes in the scene before her, but the crossbow doesn't waver. Her gray studded leather armor and cloak are decidedly dirty and travel-stained; her long blonde braid is looking rather dull and her brown-skinned, sharp-featured face is smudged with grime. Evidently this group has been traveling for quite some time. Fatigue is evident in her movements, but she looks around the tunnel alertly.

    After Darius speaks, the gnome clears her throat. "I agree with Darius. I've had quite enough for one day already, and we need another set of enemies like we need a plague of stirges. I'm Lissa Quicksilver... at least, that's what I go by in most places." Lissa's voice is a pleasant soprano, albeit a bit hoarse. "Oh, speaking of enemies, there's a whole lot of angry drow back there-" she jabs a thumb back the way her group came- "and they'll probably be coming this way as soon as they figure out how to get across the chasm. I strongly suggest that we resolve this quickly so we can get out of here!"

    The Orc give his flail a shake, the steel head rattling the chain, but he makes no other hostile moves. After a moment, he speaks, his voice gruff and rustic, "This is pretty simple. I'm coming through, and all ya gotta do is clear a path. After that.. I don't care, ya can follow us if it makes ya happy, and that'd probably be a damned fine idea on yer part. Or ya could not move, and I could clear a path, through, or die trying."

    He pauses a moment, his rough visage creasing in thought, as if he's forgotten something, "Oh, right.. Lumpy." He offers no other explanation, settling back a bit, waiting for them to clear out.

    Halfling, Into the East

    The halfling gives a short, grim laugh at Lumpy's statement.
    Rather arrogant of him... I don't think we even trust him yet, and he's not helping his cause with them...

    Then, not moving from his safe spot towards the middle fo the group, he begins to speak.
    "My name's Achkby. I want a fight about as much as the rest of them. And we think that we need to get down this tunnel, to the Glimmersea. And there are a bunch of angry drow and Grimlocks across a huge chasm back there."
    He jerks his tumb over his shoulder.
    "So I don't advise trying to go that way. I recommend turning back and going back down that tunnel with us. And then we can decide if you're going to come with us or not."
    He pauses for a moment, and glances at Aeroz.
    "But that's not up to me. All I'm saying is that if you aren't on friedly terms you;d probably be better off turnign back around."
    He ends grimly, with a deep sigh, and his spear trembles a bit in his grip. He lowers it, and sets one end on the ground.

    Aeroz, Elf Swashbuckler

    "Sorry buddy, I dont speak your language. " The elf comments as the lizardfolk belays his message. "Perhaps we could understand each other if we spoke in this tongue. I .." Aeroz stutters as he tries to think of a goblin equivalent for the word "reckon that we can talk to each other easier. Or do you speak common? If you're travelling with a band like this, it seems sort of like a necessity."

    Aeroz's goblin is a little rusty, but if the lizarfolk can understand it, it should be understandable

    Linda the White, mage.

    The white haired, white robed woman in the back of the newcomers stands on her staff wearily and studies the other group. Her eyes scan the tunnel left and right but she can't see many things apart from the other group due to lack of any ability to see in the dark. Shaking her head she attempts a smile when three of the strangers speak. Deeming it polite, she also begins to introduce herself:

    It is fortunate to meet anything other than enemies in these caverns if-from what I gathered of your speech-they are indeed part of the Underdark. My friends and I traveled through a portal here after a fight with a powerful demon. Though admitting it pains me, we lost more than one friend there-we would not like to fight again so soon. My name is Linda "Whitestaff" Endareth but you can call me simply by my first name. If you were fighting drow and other creatures of darkness, would I be right in assuming you are a noble group? If that is so, we could possibly join forces for a time-this place must be dangerous and I would like to live to see the light.

    Fizahn eyes the other group warily, looking at each one and evaluating them, he spends the longest time evaluating the other gnome. He then looks at his own group and evaluates them. Pressing his hand to his arm, he begins to speak, "I'm Fizahn. I agree that fighting is not the best option. I assume you're fleeing from those drow back the way you came, but if not it would be best to combine forces and find a place to rest as quickly as we can."

    Lumpy

    The orc begins to walk towards the other party, intending to push his way through if they won't move. As he nears, it becomes clear that he's in rather poor condition himself, dirty, beaten up, and looking like he hasn't had a proper meal in quite a while. He does manage a derisive snort, "Rest? In the underdark? Good luck with that. I've been down here fer a while and I ain't had the pleasure yet."

    As Lumpy approaches, the dwarf raises his sword in warning, point ready. Fresh demon blood, black as tar, drips from its blade.

    "I'm in no mood for yer disrespectful tone, half-breed. Ye'll be answerin' our questions an' politely too before we say ye can pass!"

    The two elves step forward in an attempt to defuse the tense situation, revealing themselves on closer inspection to be half-elven. They roll their eyes at the dwarf's racial slur, then both bow as one respectfully.

    One speaks in a gentle voice, "Greetings and well met, friends. I am Elthan Moonshadow."

    "As am I," adds the other.

    "We have no wish to fight nor would we hinder your travels, but we are somewhat disoriented and could use your help," says the first.

    "First of all, where are we?" asks the second.

    "If this is truly the Underdark, is there quick passage to the surface?" asks the first.

    "How far are we from Mimleth and the Orsrauns?" asks the second.

    Seeing the blank looks they get in return, the first Elthan asks, "Are we even still in the Vilhon Reach?"

    The other continues, "And we have seen that girl you are carrying in a vision," indicating Sheyra, "Who is she?"

    "Is she alive?" inquires the first, an eyebrow cocked in curiosity.

    Achkby, Halfling

    After Aeroz speaks, Achkby says quietly, trying to make himself audible only to his friends, "I understand him. Or at least I think that I do." He frowns for a moment, puzzled. "I think that he asked us where 'ssethra' is, though he hisses so much that he can't tell if it is ssethra or just ethra."

    -----Present-----

    This is insane! Why do some people always want to fight? At least one of them is going to die if there is a fight.

    Speaking to the elf/ves, Achkby says, "Thank you for keeping your heads."
    The he talks directly to the dwarf. "I'd thank you to keep your weapons down, Dwarf. Even if Lumpy is out of line, you have no place starting a fight when none of us want it.
    "We brought him, so if he does try anything, we'll take care of him oursleves. If he attacks you, I see no problem with your defending yourself or even killing him, but don't touch him until he does so. And we'll stop him from doing that.
    "
    He stares grimly at the dwarf, but then looks at Lumpy instead. "Lumpy, I know you've been down here for a while, but this is not the time to start another fight. Come back here and put down that flail."

    He shifts a bit uneasily after challenging the two people in the tunnel with the biggest weapons, but doesn't say anythign more.

"Is a vision not specific enough for you? Very well, we saw her in the portal that brought us here." Fizahn laughs as Achkby reprimands Lumpy. "That's right Lumpy, listen to your brains."

    Lizardkin Druid

    The lizardkin looks slightly baffled as the pinkskins around him exchange greetings and begin to co-operate. the knowledge that a confrontation was no longer imminent relaxed the lizardkin until a tall, smelly pinkskin took steps forward and started being belligerent. The lizardkin drew himself to his full height and stood toe to toe with him, flexing his clawed wrists & hissing dangerously thru clenched teeth. His manner indicating that if the strange pinkskin attempted to push his way thru his party, it''d have to go thru him..first.

    I will share my pain with this pinkskin if he tries to be stupid..

    As the elthans burst into an attempt to defuse the situation and the stranger goes no further, he attempts to digest the conversation that passes around him.

    Even with his increasing grasp of pinkskin-speech, the words while intelligble did not make sense to him. He was further puzzled that the others were not seeking what errand these strangers had with Sethra and why the others weren't eager to retreat back into the mountains and rest so as to relaunch the attack on Sethra.

    Lumpy

    Lumpy actually does stop, though he doesn't look eitherr intimidatec by the resistance put up, nor swayed by their attempts at persausion. Instead, his thick features flex into something approximately incredulous, "Yeah, sure, let's all sit down, put aside our weapons, put a pot'a tea on the fire, and compare notes. That way when the dark elves cross the chasm with some other bridge or whatever, we can all be unprepared with our backs to a dead end, and die properly."

    He shakes his flail again impatiently, pausing in his speech long enough to rattle of a few colorful curses in orcish, then continues, "Or, if the prospect of being alive appeals ta ya somehow, we should, say.. move and talk all at the same time. Not too complicated fer ya, is it? Because otherwise, whether I die fighting all'a ya, or a pack of drow ain't gonna make any difference in an hour or so."

    Always talking.. you'd think they were on the surface the way they waste time.

    Lissa, rogue

    Lissa sighs audibly and rolls her eyes as Lumpy and the dwarf butt heads (metaphorically speaking.) She giggles at the other gnome's comment, and replies in the same language. {Fighters, go figure. I mean, 'half-breed'? I can come up with a better insult than that half-asleep!}

    Seeing that a fight is (hopefully) not imminent, Lissa snaps down the safety catch on her crossbow and slings it over her shoulder by an attached strap. "I speak Draconic, too," she pipes up. Looking at the lizardfolk, the gnome speaks in the same hissing language. <Well met, warrior. Do you understand the trading-talk of humans?> She looks back up at Darius. "I just told him hello, and asked him if he understands Common. And I second the motion to talk while we walk! Or better yet, run!" Lissa eyes the wounded dwarf. "Hmm, he doesn't look like he can move very fast at the moment. Baravar's black cloak, that must hurt! Oy, Sedryn! Got any cure spells handy? The dwarf here looks like he can use 'em."

    Fizahn, gnome:

    "I know what you mean, I've said worse half-asleep."

    Fizahn sheathes his "short sword", and looks at the passage the other group came from, and then looks the way his group is preventing them from going. "I agree with her. We'd better start moving. I don't think anyone is in any shape to fight, and definitely not an outnumbered battle."

    Fizahn turns and starts walking down the passage. He turns back to look at everyone, and shouts back, "Well, does anyone else want to live? Let's pick up the pace here!"

    "Whoa there. You guys look pretty roughed up. Moving around here in your condition would be dangerous. Do you guys have any healing or something? If not, I'm sure that Sedryn will be able to help you out" Aeroz points the cleric in the full plate, who seems to be standing idly.

    Lizardkin Druid
    The momentary spike of rage ebbs into a palpable knot of cold fury. An emotion more familiar to the cold-blooded creature.

    Feh..I begin to forget myself. Perhaps pinkskins are not as weak as 'the people' thought they were. Perhaps the ones i hunt with are worthy of some respect but.. I AM lizardkin.. and must remember 'my people' belong to a balance while these.. pinkksins.. easily upset it with their ignorance and embrace corruptive magic..... I CANNOT become attached to them...packmates though they are.. and i cannot take on their weaknesses as well

    Although still standing before the tall strangely smelling pinkskin, his shoulders drop and the lizardkin seems less aggressive.
    Yet the loss and anger I hold do not seem any less
    His brows furrow.

    His attention is diverted by a smaller pinkskin a short distance behind the one he blocks. Like the small scarred one with the spirit of a wolverine, this one has a big snout as well.

    His eyes widen as it sheathes it weapon and stands close and begins talking in draconic.

    It can't come above my hip but here it stands fearlessly while unarmed within reach of one such as I

    He glances at a clawed hand, which he finds himself lowering, before turning to it and replying:
    "I do"
    Do all big-snouteded pinkskins carry this muchf coutrage?, he muses.

    As his awareness shifts to the presents and away from his emotions, he realises that his instincts are guiding him away from where the strangers had come from.
    Remembering that the strangers were fleeing from some creature called 'drow' in pinkspeech. He could not recall any beast which bore that name as part of the balance.

    While he felt no fear, a glance behind reminds him his packmates were in dire need of rest. Sethra's death was a certainty.. but it would be delayed for now.

    Achkby, Halfling

    In spite of myself, I find Lumpy's arguments winning me over. The Underdark is a dangerous place. I can't afford to just follow these people around anymore. Survival takes work here, and while it doesn't matter if these people find whatever it is they're looking for, I want to get out of here alive. We had better get moving.

    "Ay, the gnomes have the right of it. Let's get moving."

    He walks forward until he is closer to the strangers than he is to his own party, slipping the spear away as he does so. Its light radiates from just behind his head, throwing long shadows all around the tunnel.
    He looks back at all of the tall people standing behind him, and nods slowly.

    Lumpy, Half-Orc Warrior

    Lumpy looks almost relieved that they've decided to get moving, if not a little irritated that everybody attributes the idea to the gnomes. he remains silent, however, letting his flail drop slightly as he passes through the gap left by the lizardman's departure, taking long strides in his uneven gait.

    Elthan the Second, Twin Sorcerer

    *Elthan follows the lizards lead and begins to march beside him. He walks beside him for a while without saying anything.*

    *In Draconic, quite softly.*
    "Lizard, I saw the way you looked back there when they spoke. The unknowing glance of a foriegner to another speech. You have been showing this or quite some time now. I understand that you do not have as much knowlage of common speech as a natural would, but if you would allow me, I would help you better understand that language."

    *Elthan back up behind the lizard to his position beside Elthan, and lets the lizaard consider his offer as the groups walk.*
