Title: Resistence against Waugriff
Description: I'm not dropping dead...yet...
Ezekiel - June 20, 2005 05:04 AM (GMT)
Ezekiel sat in a dark corner of the bar, in front of him sat a glass of red liquid. Ezekiel occasionally dipped a finger into the drink and licked his finger clean. Ezekiel was waiting for people who would help him. Waugriff would not stop him, he didn't die just to lay around. He had a purpose he knew his purpose. Waugriff was just making things harder. Ezekiel had a sheet of paper in front of him. His name was written at the top of the paper in a red liquid. Ezekiel sat and waited, he had all the time in the world to wait. Waugriff had to come through here to get to Granseal. His armies were full of stupid demons. None had the skill in Guerilla warfare, Ezekiel had. He had spent years in the forest, his life was the forest. Ezekiel would not stop until Waugriff's armies were dead. He didn't care too much about Waugriff himself, leave that to the Princes or Nong. Ezekiel's concern was the people, they were his food, his crops. He needed them as much as they need him. Ezekiel only needed help, lots and lots of help.

Riding to the front of the bar, he dismounted as his sister kept going on the horse, he kicked open the door with his hood down and a pale face, his sister followed, he sat down next to the vampire and looked him in the eye
"There is no way in hell this is going to come through, in the matter of fact, waugriff knows hell... very well..."
Malys called for rose pedal wine and his sister sat next to him calling for the same thing, Malys turned to Ezekiel
"I dont imagine your going to just let this happen are you, well for the wellfare of my sister, i am in this war as well, we will stand next to each other with whatever ounce of glory I have after all the things i have done..., we wont stand next to eachother... We will battle side by side with others, more will come... they must..."

After seeing the fight at the bar Wulfgar went down because he heard of an alliance against Waugriff."I want to destroy Waugriff's army at all costs im in." and he sat down.
Ezekiel - June 20, 2005 10:56 PM (GMT)
Ezekiel looked at the two young men in front of him. Sighing he pushed he piece of paper forward. "Sign this and we'll get started."
Vrail - June 20, 2005 11:04 PM (GMT)
"Wait. I have to check something out." and with that he ran out of the room and got on a ship near by.

Ryant strolled into the bar, not giving much notice to the people inside. Ryant took an unoccupied seat and laid his newspaper across the table
|Granseal overtaken by hellish army|
"No way! He destroyed Granseal!? This is bad. Very, very bad." Ryant shook his head and continued reading the article
|...Although both Waugriff and Nathan declined to be interviewed, it is probable that their intentions are to destroy the free peoples of Dark Forest and warp the souls of the innocent into becoming their dark servants...|
Ryant closed his eyes. I should've been able to stop them, I should've destroyed them no matter the price. Nathan was in a bad condition when I was at their citadel, he wasn't fully recovered when we fought. Should have I forsaken my values and murdered him while he was unable to fight back?
Ryant knew the truth, but he didn't want to admit it to himself. He had the opportunity to prevent this catastrophy, but was too proud to take it.
"What does it matter?" Ryant muttered as he looked around the bar. At one table sat a man Ryant recognised from that time eight years ago.
Ryant smiled broadly, in Ezekiel he saw an answer he had been searching for. An undead vampire, both were considered dark beings, but Ezekiel broke this stereotype, becoming one of the saviours of Dark Forest.
Ryant's smile became a grand grin.
"Hey, man. Wanna save the world again?"
Aenarion - June 21, 2005 05:47 AM (GMT)
Malys pretended not to notice, his sister sat next to him as she reached for the paper, Malys grabbed it, he called for a pen and some ink, he signed his name and passed it back to Ezekiel Jen scolded him
Jen"Hey! Im going too!"
"You are certainly not, you are just a...."
Malys caught himself before he said it, he knew Jen would kill him if he said it, he closed his eyes and said gently
"You arent going, it is to dangerous"
Jen"Yes I am!"
"End of discussion"
Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 05:48 AM (GMT)
"Hey, man. Wanna save the world again?"
Ezekiel looked up at the young man in front of him, his face changed from cold to bright and happy with the same speed as Ryants arrows. "Ryant, how are you" said Ezekiel jumping up to shake the younger mans hand "Still feeling the pinch of our little sparring match?"
RealmKnight - June 21, 2005 06:02 AM (GMT)
(OOC: Technicly, that didn't actually happen, but...)
"Yeah, I thought I'd never thaw out." Ryant took Ezekiel's hand firmly and shook.
"Judging by these forms you're handing out, I'd say you are familiar with the recent tragedies, so let's get down to business." Ryant took a seat next to Ezekiel.
"Alone, the Brother's warriors are cause of little concern to ones with any skill in combat. However, their true power comes from sheer numbers. Master - Farian - and I were overwhelmed by the hordes of demons thrown at us. I beleive if we are going to take them on, we will need an army like Dark Forest has never seen." Ryant stared Ezekiel in the face with a look that grave would be understating.
"This army will be comprised of every person on the planet"
Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 06:11 AM (GMT)
Ezekiel though about what Ryant had said to him, armies were in short supply, he could think of a few places were someone could...rise an army. "Waugriff attacked Necro Mourn, making it useless to fight against him. But I know that some soldiers that are there might help us, I know you hate their kind but I'm one of them and if I get them..lively they'll help. But more importantly, the people are coming here are in some way weak, we need Farian's help. I can only do so much but if we had Farian's help we could make Waugriff send some soldiers to hunt us down. We know the forest, your the best shot I know and I can hunt as well as any elf." Ezekiel sighed slowly "I'd ahve to say we ahve three options. 1 go as we are, 2 get help from some less likely allies or we ask Farian for help."

Malys notices that Ezekiel is ignoring him and sets the paper down in front of his seat, gets up, and leaves, he will be ready when he is called upon, for now he has other buisness to attend to, Jen Followed behind argueing to no avail
Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 06:31 AM (GMT)
OOC: Badarnin I can't talk to everyone straight away give me time.
Aenarion - June 21, 2005 06:37 AM (GMT)

Ryant observed two of Ezekiel's recruits leave the building. Shrugging, Ryant spoke "How about four..." Ryant took a pen froom the table and turned over one of Ezekiel's sign-up forms. "Excuse my lack of any skill in artistry" Ryant drew a quick map on the overturned paper, showing the Iridian continent and most of the major places of interest. "Over the past eight years, Farian and I set up a school of sorts, should we need to train new heroes." Ryant circled the place on the map representing The Guardian's School. "I have no doubt that the army you speak of would be mighty, but the Brother's power, combined with the souls 'gathered'," Ryant practicly spat the last word. "from Granseal, I am certain we could not be victorious with such an army. My plan involves, like I said earlier, an army comprised of every person on the planet."
Ryant had been lost lately, but he was adamant about this. "We send envoys to all the towns and cities that Waugriff is yet to assault, and we gather the people of this world together, and we prepare to throw, literally, everything this word has at Waugriff and Nathan. It's gonna be tough, but this will forge a future for the world without fear of such monsters as them..."
Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 07:18 AM (GMT)
Ezekiel looked at the map hard. He knew the Iridian continent well. The people were bright and didn't enjoy the company of evil. Ezekiel tapped the map at the point where Ryant had said the school was. "Here is the last and first plae we go to. I'll go to the towns, raise some of their guards. I'll get people ready even if it kills me I'll make sure they know he's coming. You go to Farian and tell him that we need to defend the school and him. Waugriff is going to hunt him down. When I'm finished I'll come to the school Farian might like what I am, but I'm still alive in my head and I'll never die as long as I have the will to live" Ezekiel picked up his glass and drained the liquid from it. "Yes the army I speak of is great but I've got a feeling I won't be allowed to use it until it's at full strength. Give it a week or two hopefully"
RealmKnight - June 21, 2005 07:37 AM (GMT)
"We will need an amount of time to train the people for this - the battle to end all battles. I'm planning to have the civilian men trained in swordsmanship and offensive magic, the women trained in archery and alchemies, and possibly some of the children will need to be employed as defensive mages." Ryant's voice trailed off. "Children should never be exposed to conflict, but there might be no option for us here. If utilised as defensive mages, the children could be kept as far from the front lines as possible, which I'm sure you have no doubt would be for the best"
Ryant sighed deeply.
"The Guardian's School was not intended to host the entire population of the world, but I think we'll be able to manage, so long as the people bring tents or something." Ryant half-joked.
"Farian and I are currently... Separated... But I'm sure his next destination will be to return to the school. I can inform him of this plan when we next meet."
Getting to his feet, Ryant said "If the plan is set in stone, I guess all that's left is for us to prepare. You're taking care of getting the word spread, right? Oh, one more thing - The Brothers must not find out about the school at any cost. ANY cost, ok?"
Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 07:49 AM (GMT)
"Yes your right the children must be kept away from the battle. I can train the men to fight with swords and axes. I'll move the sick first to the school, Waugriff won't have a batch of soldiers waiting for him." said Ezekiel standing up "I send a messenger to the school. Farian might not like it but he has to help the sick, they are the first charge. Should we become somewhat lacking in numbers I'll create some uh ghouls from those who are too sick or injured to fight. They will only be used if they have no hope of survial." Ezekiel held out his hand "Let us hope we can fight the brothers. If we fail Ryant, we have to be ready to ask Necro Mourn for help, the price they ask might be great but I did help save that blasted city they won't ignore me forever." Ezekiel picked up his weapons off the wall and looked to the Bar. "Someoneght have overheard us, I suggest we ensure that no spies ever leave this place Ryant, I will do it if it is against your beliefs."
Aenarion - June 21, 2005 07:49 AM (GMT)
Malys heres these words and walks in, he was about to state a fantasy idea but it could certainly be done with alot of willpower, he grabbed hold of ryant and spun him around
"Levitate the school and alot of the land around it into the air, then levitate people that need to get in and out up or down, crazy idea, im talking many mages... MANY mages... but it could certainly be done"
Malys looked into his eyes to see if he either cared, thought he was insane, or was about to agree
RealmKnight - June 21, 2005 08:09 AM (GMT)
"That is certainly an interesting idea, sir, but if we use our mages to do that, we couldn't use them to train the militia. I beleive we will be safe at the school as the forces of Waugriff and Nathan have no idea of it's existance, so there would be no need to use our energy in such a way." Ryant smiled slightly at the man, then turned back to Ezekiel. "I would certainly appreciate if you took care of any..." Ryant looked around suspiciously "spies"
Ryant wandered over to the counter and asked for a water to go. He explained "In case I need to defend myself." This raised a few eyebrows around the room.
Ryant stuffed the bottle of water into his cape pocket, then walked back over to the other two.
"I'm gonna head to the School now, like it says on the map, the quickest way from here is through Pacalon." Ryant bowed slightly and opened the pub door, pausing in case his new allies had anything left to say to him.
Aenarion - June 21, 2005 08:16 AM (GMT)
"Quite honestly, i believe Waugriff will find it, his massive bulk of an army has many eyes..... but if you think so"
He walked outside to meet Jen, he pushed open the door and looked at the picket, he went pale, his horse and Jen were both gone, he felt light headed and fell on his knees, he couldnt breath, he gasped and fell down unconcious, not only wasnt she safe, but she was, for the first time in their many years togethor, a long way away from him, she would be slaughtered, by bandits, thiefs, waugriff maybe even.... for that he stared lifelessly at the picket only waiting to regain his senses which may take time
RealmKnight - June 21, 2005 08:28 AM (GMT)
"Many eyes are little use without knowing where to look" Ryant said to the man as he pushed through the door Ryant stood beside. Ryant watched the man look around outside, and Ryant noticed that his female companion was nowhere to be seen.
Ryant felt sorry for the obviously greving man, but he couldn't let that stop him in his path. Ryant walked past the man, following the road to Pacalon...
Aenarion - June 21, 2005 10:15 AM (GMT)
ooc: Hes unconcious... not only that but he was on the ground... also, please dont ruin my plot, its part of my plot...

Ezekiel - June 21, 2005 10:53 PM (GMT)
Ezekiel sat alone in the bar, people laughed and some cried. Tonight was the end for them all though. Ezekiel stood up and summoned an orb of Fire into his hand. Looking around to make sure nobody noticed Ezekiel luanched the orb into the bar where the alcohol was kept. Wines and brandy exploded covering the Innkeeper in balls of flame. Ezekiel drew his blade in the pandimodium and lunged forward ripping a mans head off from his shoulders. Ezekiel slit the throats of children and their mothers. Blood rained from the ceiling as Ezekiel killed the occupants of the Inn. He sent Fire into the bar destroying the wooden floors. Ezekiel drained the bloo dof the strong, creating Mindless Ghouls their only commander was him. Ezekiel, left the bar to hunt down those who fled his butchering. The hunt was clean it was powerful. The hunt was...good.
3 DAYS LATER
Ezekiel was standing in the town square. The town was there, he ahd made sure of that. Ezekiel gazed over the town, some people were still in shock. Ezekiel wouldn't let them mourn for much longer though. "People of Moun, There is a threat coming towards you, You need to be prepared, Waugriff is coming this way with an army that will destroy you. Fear is his weapon. I ask of you to prepare, I want you to train youself, The men to use swords, pikes, weapons of war. The women to use arrows and the children to be trained to use magic. Thge sick will be transported to a place of safety but I beg you, prepare for the end." A ripple of fear run through the crowd. His message was sent. Ezekiel stepped down off the platform and walked to a large War horse. Time was against him.
Aenarion - June 23, 2005 07:14 AM (GMT)
Malys slowly gets up and looks at the burnt down tavern, he reaches for his staff and ponders on where to go, at the edge of the town, he shed a tear and continued his first steps out of a town leaving behind his last glimpse of his sister, and all love he had, after about 4 miles from town, he stopped at the edge of a cliff, he saw the whole town, he saw men,w omen, children being rallyed, his sister wouldnt live if she was found be Waugriff, what also worried him is that she knew the plans, If waugriff found her, He would torture her, then get all info about it, throw her to his demonic hordes and let them deal with her, now, all fate lyed in her hands, this last hope was not to be discovered.... not until it was time, he turned around and continued his journey aimlessly looking for his sister.... and what little chance they had remaining
"The people of this earth are farmers, cleaners, workers, peasants, very few were the fighters we needed, even with our numbers, Waugriffs army would destroy us... and whatever hope we have, those children who played in the fields will not be able to defend from a demon, much less a demonic horde..."
