    "Dry enough to survive the night, and that is all that it needs to be." Gothard nods. "Though...I would apprecaite it if you took first shift. I am still quite a bit exhausted from the ordeal."

    "That is fine and understandable, after all you did just almost drown,"
    Niklaus gave him a friendly smile as he filled his belly with another bite of meaty saltless rabbit.

    "Yes, let's not bring me to life only to die in our sleep, shall we?" Gothard retorts, stretching his body out, already feeling the wear of the day heavy on his back. "Just wake me when you need to sleep." He concludes, as he slides into his bedroll and wraps himself in his blanket for a good night's sleep.

    Niklaus watched as Gothard laid himself to sleep, as he, the ranger kept himself vigilant and watchful of the setting sun and the area around him. He occupied himself with his finishing of his food, tossing the bones in the fire, etc He quietly hummed to himself a song of his village, one about mead. It was a silly song.

    During his watch, Niklaus hears only the shrill howl of the wind against the craggy cliff-face, and the crackling of the fire behind him. The darkness obscures everything beyond the radius of the firelight.

    The wind starts to pick up. The howling sounds almost unnatural, and the firelight begins to flicker and slowly die down. If it is not fed and tended soon, it will die out just before Niklaus' shift ends.

    There are some fallen branches nearby. Breaking them up to feed the fire will mean lowering his guard and hampering his guarding abilities, though.

    Niklaus collected the few branches of firewood within close proximity, but it would not be enough, not to keep the fire going all night. He walked over to Gothard and shook him a little.

    Just as Niklaus rouses Gothard from his slumber, the wind picks up dramatically, howling around them fiercely.

    The campfire is blown out, leaving the two men in pitch blackness. There are some glowing embers, though - if they hurry, they can get a new fire started.

    Hopefully.

    "...Get those timbers onto the embers, we need that fire now." Gothard says this as he is rousing himself out of his bedroll, taking some of the kindling and doing his best to help his friend bring the fire back to life.

    Niklaus froze for a moment, his eyes searching for the glowing embers in the darkness. He took a step toward the fire pit and offered up firewood in tribute to the great fire gods.

    The two vikings crowd around the embers, feeding them fresh kindling and shielding them from the harsh wind.

    The kindling catches, and the fire quickly crackles to life. The men shield the fire from most of the wind, and the breeze that does hit the fire manages to stoke it. The blaze flares to life, illuminating the whole campsite.


    Crouching a few feet away from Niklaus and Gothard, almost at arm's length, are three bloody skeletons. The creatures are hunched over and crouched low, in some sort of primal, feral pose. While strips of old sinew and rotted muscle cling to their bones, fresh pieces of flayed skin and bloody flesh hang from their joints and limbs, leaving their bodies glistening red in the firelight. Their eye sockets are empty, but stare directly at the two viking youths with what seems like undying hunger and hate. Their jaws hang loosely open, and their teeth are jagged and sharp, like malformed fangs. Likewise, the finger-bones of their hands are distended and sharpened into the form of talons; fragments of fresh, tattered meat dangle from them, dripping blood on the pure white snow.

    The moment the firelight illuminates the beasts, they let out hideous shrieks and retreat, their movements jerky and unnatural as they scamper back into the darkness, disappearing as their howls echo into the cold, black night.

    Upon seeing the monsters before his eyes, Gothard wastes no time in arming himself. His sword all the way back over by his bedroll, he instead takes hold of an unused branch of wood, a primitive club of sorts, and sets the end ablaze in the roaring fire, swinging it at the abominations that have appeared before their eyes.

    Niklaus froze in horror, his face white upon seeing the horrible visage of such creatures that managed to come upon them in moments while the fire was out, unheard. Such unholy blights were only the sort of creatures found in legends....but...legends...had to start somewhere, right? His hand was on his bow as he slowly came to.

    "I...very well.....just be very, very careful Gothard,"
    He said with a slight tremble.

    Gothard's attempt at a flaming club did not turn out well. All he has is a big, slightly smouldering branch.

    The screeches fade away, and are soon drowned out by the shrill howling of the wind...

    "...Niklaus, watch the camp, while I go to gather more wood." Gothard says, taking a small burning branch in his hand, preparing to gather more wood for the fire.

    "Yes...I got that, understood when you first said it...but ah...are you sure that...will do? Your torch doesn't seem very illuminating Gothard," Niklaus frowned seeing the smouldering make-shift torch and worried about his friend's safety.

    "Alright....I suppose...Just do not go too far, if you cannot see..."
    Niklaus glanced around. "If you cannot see my bedroll from where you find yourself at, you have walked too far." The image of those....creatures were branded into his mind.

    Gothard nods, the image as fresh in his own mind, and with one last look back, goes to the edge of the forest to search for more wood.

    Gothard manages to break off several branches from a nearby tree. As he does so, though, he can hear the soft crunching of footsteps in the snow, slowly drawing closer.

    Niklaus can hear the crunching too - all around the campsite.

    Gothard waves his makeshift torch in the direction of the crunching sound, as he continues to break off large branches, until he has an armful to carry back to the fire.

    Gothard's torch illuminates the area around him, but reveals nothing in the darkness. No movement, no footprints, only snow.

    The wind continues to howl.

    Once he has gathered what he will need for the night, he returns to the campfire, nodding to Niklaus.

    "There's no room for disagreement there," Niklaus said with a relieved smile seeing his friend safely returned. "I could hear them around the campfire." Or so Niklaus presumed that's what it was and who could blame him. "It would seem they dislike the fire."

    "Then it is good that we have wood to keep it going through the night." Gothard says with a smile and a nod, though it is a slightly forced smile.

    "Get some rest, friend. We will need all our strength for tomorrow."
