    With the man now a little calmer, Pedivere continued the questioning, taking the waterskin back off him and hooking it onto his belt.

    Yes, the church. The Paladin smiled warmly. What faith do you belong to so that we might escort you to your place of worship?

    If able to, Pedivere would then help the man to his feet. If he seems unable or unwilling to stand, he will continue to talk softly and assuredly to him.

    Mikani, do you know the location of this man's, Pedivere stops for a second.

    Forgive me, sir. I have yet to ask your name. I apologize for my lack of decorum.

    Pedivere then mouths the word "church" to Mikani.

    Bishop rolls his eyes at the bible thumper, he grew tired of this ones continuous need to bring up the gods. He knew exactly what kind of hell this one had been through and that God was a fancy word convenience, there to take credit for sitting back but never around to help out. Just thinking about it left a bitter taste in his mouth spitting on the ground Bishop looks directly at the Holy man "This man doesn't need God or any of those illusions, what he needs is a drink and a hell of a lot of time to come to terms with what he just lived through. That's all you preachy types do isn't it? Cram religion down the throats of those who are desperate or vulnerable, bah you people are worse than drug merchants and slavers. Whether this man pulls through or offs himself is up to him and not any God, they keep to themselves from I have seen."

    He turns his gaze to the burly primative "Hey, you give me a hand here and lets get this unfortunate soul to a warm bed with a stiff drink. He the poor sap needs a good rest and the only way he's going to get one is by either being knocked out or blacking out."

    Bishop frowns as he ponders over the statement, it came out as a plea but at least the man had opened up enough to give them something coherent. Smiling, Bishop made one of his rare jokes "You see? Just at the mention of a good drink the man begins to smarten up! Now lets get him out of here the last thing he needs is to be interrogated in the same bloody room his comrades were slaughtered in."

    Pediveve turns on Bishop, his voice calm and measured.

    If I were, as you say "cram religion down his throats", would I not try to cram my own? The man has been traumatized, and whether you worship or not, others do. People find familiar comfort and routine in worship and that can aid a man in times of stress like this more than dulling his wits with booze.

    Gingerly he helps the man to his feet and begins taking him to his church.

    Truly, Bishop was a man of self-loathing and ignorance. For someone as old as he was, he didn't know much about the world, or the people in it. Too much self-pity obviously had taken its toll on him.

Then as everyone starts heading up stairs, Vash'iar finds the guard houses manacles and goes to shackle the unconscious creature. At first he tries the wrist, but the manacle just slides over the tiny appendage. Instead he wraps the metal bracelet around it's ankle, secure the second end to the bolted down holding bench. Alright, well it's not going anywhere now. Well, unless it chews off its foot. At least we'd have a trail of blood to follow in that case.

    Once upstairs, most of the group moves to attend the helpless victims. On the far wall, Vash notices several built-in wardrobes. As he checks each one to ensure nothing his hiding there it's apparent that these were used for the guards to store their personal affects while on duty, and to put their equipment when they were off. That d**n priest isn't going to let me load this stuff up, I guess I'll just have to come back later. (OOC: if there is a window to this room, he would open it. if anyone questions it, "This room needs air, it stinks of death.")

    Vash moves over to the guards, and with a heavy sarcastic tone in his voice, Vash adds his sentiment, Amen my brother. Praise the gods and all their glorious deeds.

    Mikani, do you know who these men are? We should check to see if they have any personal affects on them that could identify them so their families can be informed."
    Vash then kneels down to remove anything that could contain a letter, name, or clue about who they are; to include a small coin purse that vanishes into his sleeve about the same time his fingers first touch it.

    Bishop promptly ignores Peddibear or whatever those half orc call themselves and smiles wryly at Vash's statement. A look of sorrow crooses his face for a moment "Death is no joking matter, I have seen enough of it to last several lifetimes. As for me being a 'cleric of death' I suppose that is as accurate a statement as one could imply, my bible is my gun and my roseries are my bullets. One can only rely on themselves at the end of the day, no patron saint of bull is going to save the world from itself."

    He turns his attention to the uppity priest "Spoken like a true moron, who knows nothing about the world, you religious types closet yourself in your fancy churches and dare to say you know the people? Don't make me laugh, you say a few lies mixed with honey and dole out a scrap of bread and promises when it suits you. Don't fool yourself with the lies and crap the church spews, for it won't save you when you are facing an opponent it will be your wits and from what I see you haven't developed any yet. Now enough of this crap, lets get this poor sap out of here and rally anyone left in this God forsaken town. We need to get to the bottom of this and it woon't get done if people stop to pray every five minutes."

    As La Siréene watches the conflict between his comrades, he cracks his broadest smile yet.

    Ahhh. Conflict. Friction between factions. The very essence of life itself. You embody it beautifully, sirs. Now, while I'm not what you would call a scholar, I have spent some time with overdramatic sods that have spent a bit too much time with their upper parts within their lower parts, if you catch my drift. Therefore, I'm pretty sure "mortem" refers to death, so the "cleric of death" thing could well have deeper meaning than just referring to our mate Bishop, here. Speaking of witch, we actually agree that this poor sod should be helped out of here, so let's move out, my lovelies.

    Making a joking bow and a wave at the path to the stairs, La Siréene attempts to lead the way down to the entrance.

    You know, he's likely right on that one. After all, post-mortem means after-death. Sorry B, you're not the god of death... maybe it's angel though Vash smiles to himself as they work on getting the surviving guard the assistance he needs. Mikani, were are we taking this broken SOB? I'm bored here.

    Enough of this!

    An argument based on religion has never been brought up while Makoa lived with his brethren. The idea is completely foreign to him.

    La Siréene has it right. Let's get out of this place before those things' friends come back. All of this religious talk has left Makoa in a bad mood. This group needs a leader to get things done, Makoa believes he fits the bill.

    Let us at the very least get to the main road, hopefully the guard will be in a better state not surrounded by a bloody mess and a group of fighting children. He can make his own decisions from then on.

    Mortem is the god that rules over the Imperial Realm, he is portrayed as an old man with no eyes and a long gray beard with a skeletal staff with scales. His staff is a tool to judge dead souls on the Wayward Path, if he judges that a soul is deserving he sends them to the Imperial Realm, if not he sends them to the to one of the Damned Realms, consistent with the damned souls crimes or evil. He is uncaring to any mortal affairs unless they affect the afterlives. His apathy towards mortals leads him to be unresponsive to prayer or religion. He has churchs all over the Archipelago dispite his Apathy.

    Ah, finally my beautiful memory kicks in: Mortem is the apathic, I would say psychopathic, god of death, worshiped beyond reason all around the Archipelago, despite not being swayed at all by prayer or sacrifices. He cares not for the acts of the living; despite being one to decide whether a person’s soul should be rewarded or punished post-mortem. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a location to strive towards. Mikani, you would not be as wonderful as to know where the closest church of Mortem is located, would you? Because, if we knew where that was, I would say that it would be a good idea to take him there. Do him that service, at least, considering what he has been through.

    Bishop doesn't even bother responding to the long winded droanings of the bard he simply grabs the man underneath his shoulders and waits for someone to grab his feat. He looks at the loud and rather dense half orc "Where have you been, I have been trying to get this one out of here for the past five minutes when all of you have been sitting twiddling your thumbs. Also, stuff your orders junior, you want to play leader then do so on your own time, right now we have work to do so shut up and help me get this one out of here. If you would rather stand around and dictate may I suggest you get the hell out of here because that isn't very useful and right now my tolerance for fools is very thin."

    As you carry the still insane man, you arrive at the church in the middle of the town, the tall grey towers of the church stand over you in the rain, the gargoyles sit on the top of the tower, staring down at you. as you enter the church you come into a room with a statue of old man with no eyes and a long gray beard with a skeletal staff with scales. A young man with dark brown hair rushes over to you with a dagger drawn as he sees to lug the man in, "Halt, what has been done to this man?"

    Yes. That is correct. We can't find the local captain of militia. Do you have any ideas where we'll find him.

    Makoa is visibly uncomfortable in the church, silently he prays to his gods hoping that they will accept his sacrifice in penitence later tonight.

    Thr priest looks over the man's body, fliping through his clothes, finally showing a patch on the underside of the guards vest.

    Priest

    "If your looking for the captain, you've found him. Here maybe this will help."The priest chants some lines over the man while waving over wounds and injuries, a flash from the priest's hands, and the captain's wounds heal.

    The Paladin nods when his companions speak. He had ignored Bishop, it is probably the best thing to do, at least for now. Something, sometime had obviously upset him, distressed him or caused him grief, and people, the church or family had failed him. Regardless, Pedivere didn't really worry if Bishop didn't want to worship the Gods, a God or his own sense of self-worth, the same could be said about the Half-Elf Vash. Everyman was free to make their own decisions, Bishop just didn't realise that yet. And though he thought he was trying to remove imposed will on others, he himself was trying to impose his own will. Ironic. Pedivere smiled.

    At the Church of Mortem the God of Death, Pedivere wasn't concerned. Each and every god had a place. It wasn't the Gods or their places of worship, or indeed the majority of their followers that concerned him. No, it was what certain of their followers would do in worship. But death was natural and came to all in time, Mortem and this place of worship had no baring on Pedivere as a person or as a follower of Iomedae.

    He nodded when his companions spoke to the temple guard, but chose to add nothing to the conversation, nothing needed to be added at this point.

    La Siréene watches as the priest heals the captain of the guard, looking around this temple of the god of Death. The previous argument about gods and their clergy controlling the actions of others had interested him greatly, as he saw the freedom of thought of others for what it really was: a falsification, crafted by a mind that would never be able to move beyond its set limits. It is a defense mechanism, La Siréene decided. The mind functions best when it believes it is in control. It is a flawed system, sure, since it means the violent regarding perceived loss of freedom becomes so destructive, but that is not really anything new, is it.

    Regarding Mortem, the God of Death, La Siréene wasn't worried. He knew gods were just as limited in their thought process as humans, elves, half-orcs and every other existence. Except himself, obviously.

    HOW DID THIS END WITH HALF THE PARTY BUYING PROSITITUTES

    Once the guard has been healed and fully calmed, Pedivere will direct his attention to the priest.

    We went to the guard post to inquire about the abductions when we found that it had been attacked by these, Pedivere throws the unconscious creature to the ground. It's legs and arms had been bound with rope before leaving the outpost.

    These are the creatures responsible for the murder and desecration of this mans colleagues.

    Have you seen them before, or know what they are? We fear that there may be more of them around, or that they may be in league with or under the power of some other force.

    My concern, is this. he said. Then, gripping the creature by the chin, Pedivere forcibly turned the face towards the priest. He was not gentle.

    Do these not look like they could be debased and corrupted children? I have heard that undead creatures can spawn lesser variants of themselves after feeding. Could this be one of the missing children spawned into a nightmarish creature to terrify the very people who look and grieve for them?

    With a thud, the Paladin returned the head to the ground.

    I will dispose of the creature as you suggest, but I will not befoul your church with its blood. We will take it outside and slay it there.

    Once sure that the Priest had seen much of the creature, Pedivere took it away from the church grounds and with a dagger he pierced the brain through the eye.

    Weeeeeell, says La Siréene Dorée after observing the execution of the corrupted child, We have freed and saved the captain of the watch house. In addition, the signal should have reached the other watch houses. Finally, we have cleared out and killed the corrupted children attacking the watch house. Our original reason to venture to the watch house was for information about the disappearances of children, which the captain might have something to say about when he feels better. That said, Does anyone have any preferences for our next course of action? Personally, I would like to know if any of the other watch houses have been hit. Any other suggestions?

    Bishop stays outside the church not overly concerned for the guard at the moment. He leans against the building watching the rain fall upon the earth, normally he enjoyed watching the rain but this was just too unnatural. His gaze shifts as the paladin drags the helpless creature out back and dispatches it So he can kill? Though only when something can't fight back.

    He could never forgive the clergy for what they had done to him and his companions. Yes oddly enough he had friends in his youth, shortly after fleeing his home town but it was short lived. He was hired by a mercenary group and for a spell, travelled with them doing odd jobs here and there. He grew to trust and like the men he fought with, see them as brothers though he never knew what they did before coming. He didn't bother asking, it wasn't his place. It rained like this on that day too... Sorrow dawned on the man's pale blue eyes as he remembered. His band was hired to escort some priests going on a pilgremage through some back water land. His band kept to themselves but cautioned the priest to keep a low profile. They inisisted they had to save the souls of the 'Heathens' living in the outlands, most people simply ignored them but not that day. The priests had been stupid enough to try to convert a tribe of cannibals, these people thought by consuming what they saw as sacred that they were actually taking god into themselves. So the priest became the menu for the day after they began blabbing. Most tried to run with no success, the ones that did escape stole all their horses and crippled some of his friends, leaving them as bait so they could escape with their wretched lives. Bishop had hesitated when the mob had descended upon him and his friends, it cost him the life of his best friend. He watched as his his friend's throat was torn out by some savage's teeth, that was the first time Bishop had every lost control over himself. After shooting at killing a handfull of the villagers he managed to drag the corpse of his friend to a hidden copse. His gun had scared off the remaining cannibals so he was at least able to bury his friend.

    A grim smile formed on Bishops face as he remembered hunting down those murderous bastards that left he and his friends to die like cowards, after they had provoked the attack. The first few were easy, unaware that death was on their trail, they had even had been kind enough to group themselves together. After he had taken out the first half, the second had already fled then went underground. It took a year to flush the rest out and send their wretched souls to hell, Bishop didn't care it was a sin to kill a priest, these men had a blood debt and he was the collector.

    His gaze focused on the templar and his smile was replaced with a scowl, would Bishop have to take down this one as well? He doubted it, this one was one of those idealistic sorts, less sense and brains more blind faith. He knew everyone walked their own path to the same destination but could he trust his back to this one, that was the more important question. He pushed the thought from his mind, the whelp could do as he pleased which was so far only flapping his gums.

    I apologize for my absence, I am still adjusting to the chaos that is graduate school. Know that I am still alive and hopefully can find time to get back to posting.

    Pedivere wiped the blood and gore from the dagger and returned it to the sheath on his belt. The creature looked pitiful and disgusting and he had to resist the temptation to stab it once more. To think that this may have been a human child was truly depressing. But what it was when Pedivere and his associates had found it was no longer even truly alive, it was an abomination and thus no longer worthy of mercy.

    With the bard nearby asking about next moves, the Paladin nodded his assent. I too agree that we need to find out if there have been any other attacks. Nobody has responded to your alarm, and considering the grim disposition and situation that this place finds itself in I admit that I find this concerning.

    To the priest the Paladin then spoke, his tone soft. We need to find out if there have been further attacks. Could you direct us to another guard post, or perhaps send one of your acolytes to guide us on our way? It is likely that this was a planned assault given the nature of the outpost when we found it.
