Sasha sat at a table in a large rather fancy looking inn waiting to see who would be in her battalion for her first official mission. The urchin girl enjoyed a small glass of elderberry wine, swishing it in the glass a bit boredly. She was wearing the green and gold fatigues that the non-magic using knights wear, and had a large(for her size) backpack, her maul and her green and gold shield beside her on the floor. Sasha stared at her cup thoughtfully after taking a dainty sip of her wine.
The newly recruited Knights of the Order of the rose Citadel or any one else hired, were told to meet at this inn and await further instructions of the current mission. Here was where the new recruits were assigned to their new battalions from which they'd be sent out on various missions.
Suddenly the doors to the inn burst open with tremendous force. Standing at the doorway (or rather, hovering) was a tiny girl, barely a foot in height. Her wings rapidly flapped as she floated, her arms crossed and a look of determination on her face. Despite her round face, her body was well toned and hugged by her dark orange thigh-length shorts and matching shirt with mid riff.
"I demand a drink!" She yelled out. Her voice was tiny but strong. The other inngoers looked at her in confusion and she fluttered over to the table, standing on the bar itself. Grabbing a bag of coins nearly as large as her off her back, she slammed it to the table.
"You! Dork! I'm thirsty and there's a pretty piece involved if you hurry up and get me something with nectar in it!" She said, pulling out a gold coin and waving it with one hand despite its size.
*the bartender gave her a look of disbelief then quickly reverted to his usual bored demeanor* "calm yourself fey, this is a high class establishment not one of those dingy taverns where everyone yells and breaks shit, am i clear?" *he pushed a tiny cup the size of a thimble filled with mead*
*sasha glanced back at the bit of commotion, but continues enjoying her drink, waiting for the others working with her to show up and be briefed*
Looking down at the tiny drink, she rolled her eyes when the bartender turned his back and plopped down, gulping the whole thing down in an instant.
"Some high class establishment, you give me half a drop of the good stuff, taking my money..." She grumbled under her breath, but loud enough for Sasha to overhear, "I come all the way out here for a mission and I get barked at by some twerp like I'm six...."
*the bartender just calmly cleans a glass* "if your with the rose citadel the tables over there with the urchin girl ..." *mutters something about no discipline like they had back in his day or something along those lines*
*sasha waves the pixie over over hearing the pixie and the bartender*
Gorvan Vaskarian, the human knight captain of the Rose knighthood enters the inn dressed in full official attire. Rose inlaid plate armor and bristling with rose and flower themed weapons. Raven hair framing his hard face and plethora of scars.
He notices sasha, an up-and-coming initiate of the order and sidles up to her.
"Private, I've finally gotten you one of those jobs you've been asking for. Looks like you won't be dealing with "rat infestations" anymore." He says the last part with a slight smirk.
"Here, I wasn't told you had a time limit, but it would look good on your record if you can settle this matter in due time.", he hands Sasha a document with the mission details written in a fancy, swaying handwriting style. "I'll save you the trouble, Higher ups want a delegation to improve relations with A count in Dvargbergen. You'll also note specifies you have the right to now introduce initiates to our order if you feel they are up to par. In addition, you have been allowed a 300 gold budget for various supplies and if needed, mercenary coinage."
With the message handed off, Gorvus salutes the young recruit and heads off, likely back to the academy(or whatever the rose knighthood headquarters is).
*before sasha could answer the pixie her captain had briefed her* "yes sir!" *she salutes the man before he leaves for the Rose Citadels guild house* *she turns back to the pixie* "sorry about that, yes im a private in the Order of the Rose Citadel, are you in the order or were you hired to help?"
OOC: Just curious, how long do pixies normally live? The last guy who had fairies in his RP said they live three thousand years, so I keep thinking Nelly is old enough to have sat behind Jesus in the third grade. >.>;
Nelly grabbed the finger with her whole hand and shook. There was a surprising amount of strength in it for someone her size.
"Damn right I want to join! I just finished my training, this would be my first big mission." She said proudly. "What about you? You're one of those Rose knights, yeah?"
(they live a few hundred years but the pixie queen is 300 and like 3 feet tall, nelly could still be like 20 since pixies mature fast) *she giggles proudly* "mhmm! i recently came out of training as well! im hoping if i do well enough i can become a Knight of Golden Thorn!" *she sips her wine quite happily enjoying her weak girly drink*
Serena had allowed the commotion to die down somewhat, she shook her head with a soft smile 'How could such a small creature make such a ruckus?' she mused to herself. The inn had finally got enough people in it that it might be worth her while to take up playing and she'd already secured the best seat near the fire with a small glass of water near at hand. A soft chord played out, and then another, and another, each slightly different than the one before as she tuned it gradually getting more melodic until the tune changed into an intricate piece, a Elven folk song.
Though she seemed to sway gently with her eyes closed she took every opportunity to look around the inn, attempting fleeting glances at some of the men and soft smiles to the women. The song was loud enough for those who wanted to hear to listen in and drown out their discussions but quiet enough to be easily ignored by those who didn't. She began to hum softly to the warm tune of her strumming.
OOC: Ah, that works. And yeah, I saw about the pixie queen. Nel's only a foot tall, so I think she's still tall for her race, according to the wiki at least. I envisioned her with the body of a mid-twenty year old, so I guess 25 works. Not enough time to become a high level monk, but enough time to train as a first level monk.
And Serena, I hope this is the start of a beautiful partnership.
As Serena began to play her flute, Nelly flinched and shuddered.
"Ugh, what the Null is that noise?!" She said, looking around until she saw the elven bard in the back. She groaned.
"Argh, it's one of those pointy eared jerks...." She grumbled, "And that noise! Gods, it's like cats being used as a weapon! I swear, if she's part of the group....."
*sasha glances over at who nelly was grumbling about and absentmindedly states* "i wouldnt mind if shes in the group ...shes kinda cute" *she then quickly shuts up not wanting to discuss her thing for elves* "i mean ... she seems nice" *decides she probably shouldnt finish her wine before she spouts off anymore embarrassing quips*
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character
Jan 19, 2016 18:28:55 GMT
Doublewhip: Saw your Reddit ad. Don't forget to reach out to and affiliate with other similar forums!
Jan 20, 2016 1:29:36 GMT
Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.
Jan 20, 2016 14:50:50 GMT
Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.
Jan 20, 2016 14:51:58 GMT
shogungari: Really? I have a few if you wanted to borrow them
Jan 20, 2016 16:32:44 GMT
shogungari: Also, welcome Doublewhip
Jan 20, 2016 16:32:51 GMT
Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back
Jun 30, 2016 19:00:30 GMT
Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games
Jun 30, 2016 19:05:52 GMT
shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
