PART THREE OF A DULL ADVENTURE GETTING EVEN WORSE
axlkoegoskyeg: a men with a sword that comes in at a very convenient time... ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: And, he turns around, you can see it is one of the other peasants... Marcus Whiskey( Just made it up, still open tosuggestions ), a reliable cowboy who, as far as you know, was suppose to be a pacifist... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: Is this man with a sword my good friend Bill Tenkay? That long-locked redhair of a man?
To axlkoegoskyeg: A cowboy? Like, cowboy hat cowboy?
To axlkoegoskyeg: I ask if he has a gun
axlkoegoskyeg: ( Well, I had to make up something... Ironically, I was intending to make it a old friend of yours in a visit, but... ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( Ah well, never mind. Had to improvise a bit. Hope it will do. (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: The men( Running behind you, althought, you become suddenly very aware, your newfound speed means he is much slower then you ) Hey( arf, arf )... Where are you going? (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: As for a gun, well, yes, I have one, but trust me: It wont help you much against that guy... I tried, but he is, like... Definitively NOT the common raider... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: I stop and turn. Marcus, were you just barking?
axlkoegoskyeg: No, just tired... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Shut up, Marcus. You know who that is? Tell me on the way, we need to get to the Temple of the Wind God... I know Lord Bill Tenkay. He can help us."
axlkoegoskyeg: I know, I know... Well, the Wind God was never one of the Nine, but I have utterly no idea of what these guys can be... Not more then what the rumours say, anyway... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Judging for the clothes, they must be the Dark Fang Clan, or just DFC. They are the servants of Darkus, a extremely powerfull drow mage... They usually like to pillage small villages and enslave the population... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: However, I am no specialist, Gris, but I think there is a considerable difference between a farm, even a large one such as yours, and a village... And he was also yelling something in the lines of Find it, what means they were looking for something… (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( Again: Where was it cut off? ) (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: My character keeps talking, barely hearing what poor Marcus has to say. "Good old Bill. We had a long, and very DEEP friendship, you see. Long and hard roads together, the two of us. Knew him better than any other man. VERY close. Special friendship, and all that, long and hard roads."
Kongregate Notice: Part of your message was cut off because it exceeded the 250 character maximum.
To axlkoegoskyeg: Long and hard roads together, the two of us. Knew him better than any other man. VERY close. Special friendship, and all that, long and hard roads."
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Wait, Marcus, that actually sounded important. What were you saying?"
axlkoegoskyeg: ( He repeats what he says, as I dont currently have the patient to rewrite it, nor you to reread it. ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Marcus: Do you have any idea of what it can be? (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: I take out the dagger and look at it carefully
axlkoegoskyeg: Marcus: Yep, never seen it before. To me, it sounds like just a old, rusty dagger... Except for the fact that it has this weird, dark aura around it, you know... That, now that I think about it, you seem to have too... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "I suspect, Marcus, that this is the Foehammer. We need to move quickly, before Goblins come after us as well."
axlkoegoskyeg: Marcus: Wait a- Foehammer?What do you mean by- Bah, never mind. Typically, when there are a bunch of dark clouds arising from the sky where a mage just attacked( points at the sky above your old farm ), it is a sign that you have to run faster... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ... And here am I, still talking rather then RUNNING, as these are extending in our direction... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Then don't tire this time, Marcus! Let us flee! TO THE WIND TEMPLE!"
axlkoegoskyeg: ( You run, and fast... In the very rare occasions where you stop to look behind, you see the clouds are extending faster and faster... With the mage in its front, fliyng around like a freak, and below it, the grass seens to wither and die... ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( Eventually, you get to what seems to be A wind temple... It isnt themain one,just a sanctuary in the road, but it will have to do. Besides, Bill is a big traveler, anyway, and this is a sanctury in the road... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( AS you enter the temple, when you turn back to close the door, you see the clouds reached above the mage... And the stare on his face, to your surprise, was a stare of fear... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Mage: PLEASE, LET ME IN, I WILL SO ANYTHING, JUST LET ME- (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: I point and laugh
To axlkoegoskyeg: Then I elbow Marcus. "Are you SEEING this?!"
grislygus: "Come on, let's go inside"
To axlkoegoskyeg: whoops, lol. "Come on, let's go inside"
axlkoegoskyeg: ( But he didnt got to finish that sentence, as a bunch of tentacles of darkness came from the clouds and immobilized the mage, breaking his staff, and slowly suffocating it... And then, from where the tentacles are coming, a weid figure comes out… (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( Again: Where was it cut off? ) (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: And then, from where the tentacles are coming, a weid figure comes out…
axlkoegoskyeg: too... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "too"... what?
axlkoegoskyeg: ( It seems like a male drow, for the gray skin and eyes, but definitively different of anything you saw. It wears some kind of heavy armor, of a model similar to the ones of ancient Illmaterian mages... He was quite tall, with a very long hair...… (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: (Again: Where was it cut off? ) (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: He was quite tall, with a very long hair...…
axlkoegoskyeg: His face seemed serene, even happy, as if killing people was some sort of hobby for hin... ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Mage: Please, no... I wont fail you again, I... I SWEAR it... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Men: You swore it the last time, too... And the last... And the last... Honestly, it doesnt mean much anymore... If you really cant beat a mere farmer... Perhaps you would be better devoured... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( A last, loud screan was heard, vefore a torrent of dark energy came fromthe dark mage, to this... Drow. ) (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: ( And then, when he fell, from his body, there was nothing but ashes... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Men: AS for you... Perhaps, one day we shall meet... Or perhaps not... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: I patiently wait until he's done feeding his pet, then wave at him. I turn to Marcus; "Why the hell aren't you inside?! Do you want to die?!"
To axlkoegoskyeg: I hit Marcus and shove him inside, closing the door behind us.
axlkoegoskyeg: Marcus: Oh, yeah( jumps in ) (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Allright sheepsbrain, keep an eye out for A tall man with bug eyes and long red hair"
To axlkoegoskyeg: "With the DREAMIEST smile."
To axlkoegoskyeg: I cup my hands and bellow Bill's name, ignoring the glares I get from the wind acolytes"
axlkoegoskyeg: Marcus: So... This must be Darkus, I assume...He sure was... Powerfull. I mean, that mage could, and did, rip one apart as ifit was some kind of doll, but that drow killed hin as if his magic was some kind of joke... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Also... Dreamiest smile, you say? Now that I think about it, you always have that dreamy look whenever you talk about Bill... (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Shut up, Marcus!" I grab one of the acolytes, and ask if he's seen "Bill, or, I mean, Lord Tenkay"
axlkoegoskyeg: Acolytes: Well, he said he was going for a visit,because he believed some sort of extremely powerfull dark force would come here in a couple of days... (reply)
axlkoegoskyeg: Acolyte; However, he isnt here ye- (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: "Where is he? WHERE'S MY FRIEND BILL"
axlkoegoskyeg: ( All in the sudden, a small whirliwind of wind comes out in the middle of the room... When it dissipates, well... There is hin. ) (reply)
To axlkoegoskyeg: I grin and act like I wasn't about to beat up one of the acolytes
IT'S A GOOFY BALL, MATTHEW. NOT A SUPER COMPUTER.
