Title: Its time
Dracon Malik - June 19, 2005 01:11 AM (GMT)
As Dracon walked into the bar faces turned in all directions to see who it was. There mouths almost dropped as both the Malik brothers walked towards the barkeep. The twins had never ventured too far away from the castle and if they did they often flew very high to avoid sight.
Dracon sat at the bar and closed his eyes trying to seense where the others were. They could have been too far behind considering that he was only going half speed the whole way here.

Dracos sat tapping his finger on the bar. "So why exacly did we come here again?" he asked. as he swirled an ale that the bartender gave him around in his glass! Waiting for th women to arive, Dracos ordered a room from the barkeep and flipped him a gold coin!

"Must you be so impatient brother?" Dracon said with his usual irritated voice. "We need to get to claudes temple, and the only way is threw the heart of Galam. The library there will be able to tell us where that symbol on the assasins chest came from.
"We rest for a day, then we set out for Claudes Temple. I feel a great power though, coming from the south. Its almost familar and I fear that if we allow it to grow it will exceed anything this planet has ever seen before." Dracon said while staring blankly at the bar.

Dracos began to snikker. "Impatience wasnt the issue brother, Curiosiity alone was" he replied. Looking around he tapped the bar for another round. Buying his brother one as well!
"I wonder whats taking the women s long?" he said, taking a sip of the ale. Galam had better ale then Yeel and dracos was going to make sure he savoured it. But not to excess!
Destiny - June 19, 2005 09:57 PM (GMT)
Destiny wondered into the bar as after many days of walking without rest, he was exhausted and had half a mind of getting a room and going to bed straight away, that was before he saw the malik brothers that is. He was instantly curious of what they were doing here and he also saw it as an opportunity to gather info, which he lacked. He want over to them and sat down next to Dracon on the bar and ordered a glass of ale. The barkeeper nodded and hurried off. Destiny then turned to Dracon and Dracos "I was wondering what 2 princes of such power and wealth were doing down here in an ordenary inn? Also i know this may be a delicate subject for you two at this time, but i lack the information i need. I was wondering whether you could give me news on the assassination of the king, for i dont know much and i wish to learn as much as i can for i fear that the person behind it all could indeed be very dangerous."

Dracos looked at Destiny. "Our buisness is our own, Hero of Old!" he replied not letting his gaze falter as he looked at the mage. "And indeed you can assume the one who sent him is dangerous. That bit would be obvious!"
Dracon Malik - June 20, 2005 02:42 PM (GMT)
Dracon motioned backwards putting down his ale. "We dont know who he was, or who he was working for. But he was one of the most powerful mages to ever walk to the planet...thats for sure. He could cast super nova as if it was a backwater spell, something a child could use."
Dracon took another sip, "We only found one thing before we tore him to shreds." Dracon stopped and grabbed an ink pen from he bartenders chassey. He began to draw a W in the exact shape he had seen it on the mans chest.
"Have you seen this symbol before?" he stared at Destiny extremely curious as to why he looked familar.
Destiny - June 20, 2005 03:40 PM (GMT)
Destiny looked at the sign for a few minutes, taking in every bit of the detailed. Deep in his mind he recognised it, but it had been 6 years he last saw it. It suddenly clicked, that was the sign that was on Drakes neckles when he died, that was the sign that lay hidden in the shadows of Methos, biding its time, that was the sign of Waugriff. Destiny looked up at Dracon, his voice slightly shaking at the memory of Drake, for it bought back painful memories he did not wish to remember. "That is the sign of Waugriff, He along with Nathan rule the city of Akara, the ruler of the dead. They spread their hands over all good in this world, they will not stop until everything perishes. That explains all the rumours of armies and the tragic destructions of the cities. I thought he had gone into hiding after the defeat of Methos, but it seems he now emerges, spreading his disease like wildfire over this world."
Dracon Malik - June 20, 2005 04:21 PM (GMT)
Dracon's eyes went wide and pale, "Waugriff?!" A cold dry feeling swept threw his body at the mention of the name. He no longer needed to go to Claudes Temple, he needed to go to Granseal to report the news and mobilize the Imperial Army before it was too late.
He quickly looked at Destiny and his brother, "You two think you can scout Akara? Find its weaknesses?" He waited for a reply then deciding not to wait, "Scout Akara please, I am heading to Granseal, and on the ninth moon of this year we will lay siege to Akara."
Dracon quickly got up and turned around, "See you in a month" Quickly he launched himself into the air outside the bar and broke the sound barrier with his body.
Flying high in the skys he pushed himself like he had never done, he needed to get to Granseal, he needed to mobilize the army. What he needed most though...was his mothers guidence.
Blood God - June 20, 2005 08:15 PM (GMT)
Dracos nodded and took another sip. "Scouting it out wont be a problem" he replied. Looking at the mage destiny he replied. "I have read the historical documentation on the armies of Waugriff, They are demon based. Not the undead. He rules over the hellish being, no the damned! He is ruler of the demon army, and from what I heard through my network. He attacked Necro Mourn and failed to take it. The armies of the dead beat him back! But I wll scout it out brother! and relay what I find to you!"
Destiny - June 21, 2005 01:26 PM (GMT)
Destiny nodded "Scouting should be no problem, from what i can imagine there arent many demons left there anyway, and what there should be no problem if we are spotted" Destiny stood up and payed the bar keeper and headed for the door "we should get going, Akara is far from here, thankfuly i have some transport" he walked out the door and pulled out Soul Calibur, pointed it towards the sky and a beam of light appeared, which exploded seconds later, revealing the dark form of Cervantes. The dragon swooped down and landed next to Destiny and Dracos. Destiny hopped onto its back and then looked at Dracos "We should go"
Blood God - June 21, 2005 10:15 PM (GMT)
Dracos nodded, as if impressed. Getting up on the dragons back he looked down at Dracos. "Tell ashley and her companion we will be back soon. Im going scouting! shouldnt be more then a couple days!" Nodding to his brother one last time he awaited for destiny to command the beast off
Destiny - June 22, 2005 12:55 PM (GMT)
Destiny nodded and looked at the dragon and said "Akara". The dragon took off the ground with incredible speed and flew off into the distance.
Wyndre - June 25, 2005 10:23 PM (GMT)
Wyndre arrived a bit later, just in time to see the dragon take off. Her injury had slowed her down, but she was healing quickly thanks to her elven blood. She stood in awe as she watched it fly away. As it disappeared into the clouds in the distance, Wyndre turned jumped into a nearby tree. She took off in the direction that Dracos was headed without another word.
