A kender's telling
I had taken some time from my exciting travels to relax in the stunning clan
hall of Nonla Arahanala. It really is a fine place, lots of dragons, shiny
things, very exciting. Well just as I was having a seat in the sanctuary of
the clans past leader, I heard a shout about some ruckus near the
executioner! Being the inquisitive kender I am, I immediately made my
presence known. Tripping over myself in my haste to reach Mirza, I almost
fell on top of a tired looking fellow by the name of Maeglin. He looked
quite the spiffy chap, though he was bleeding quite badly. I noticed that
there were others there as well. Lord Glaykor Fawson, Lord Cedrick, and
Saul, that butcher guy, and from what I could tell Saul's business as a
butcher wasn't going so well, his money pouch wasn't very full. Apparently
Maeglin and his daughter Allasse, who by the way is a very pretty girl, had
been traveling in their coach from Xantheus to Gedhron city with their
servant Daeron when they were ambushed by a band of orc raiders! Maeglin
said he and Daeron fought the orcs off while the pretty girl escaped. At
this point Maeglin seemed to lose consciousness, perhaps the heat had gotten
to him, but I grabbed my hoopak and skipped off in search of the pretty girl
singing a merry traveling tune.
It seems I had gone the wrong way though as a shout from Glaykor announced
that the ruined coach was in the completely opposite direction from where I
had skipped off to. When I arrived at the coach the first thing I noted was
that Glaykor didn't have such a large pouch of money either. Then I saw the
mangled body of Daeron the servant and the severely damaged coach. Maeglin
had woken up and made his way to us at the Crossroads and told us his
daughter had run south, so that's where I headed.
After getting lost several times and playing on the beach for a while I
returned to the Crossroads to find that Saul and Maeglin hadn't moved. They
finally started south in search of the man's daughter and I was forced to
chase after them, as they seemed to have forgotten I was there. We all met
up at a crossroad that seemed to be covered in blood of all things, and we
questioned a dark looking knight. He refused to tell us anything without
payment, so thinking he apparently needs the money I gave him back his pouch
of gold. To my surprise he then told us his spies saw the girl head south
and then east. Well after some confusing twists and turns and a couple
backtracks we made our way towards the ogre swamps.
Ogres are actually very interesting people. They can't quite carry a
conversation, and their eating habits aren't exactly pretty, but they can
break some really big things! After Saul, Maeglin, and myself wandered
around in a mist for several minutes we finally found our way out only to
see that Glaykor had already come across the girl and killed a wight that
was guarding her. Boy was she pretty. I do admire the lovely girls and she
was quite the looker. Pretty doe eyes, a dainty form...Well she seemed
scared so after a touching family reunion we brought her back and met up
with everyone at Mirza again. Once there, Maeglin asked us to seek revenge
on the orcs and bring back his ring that they stole. He said they stopped
chasing him at the east gate and went north from there.
Back on the road again, we wandered around, backtracked, and finally found
the party of orc raiders and their captain. A vicious fight ensued and it
was quite exciting! I myself single-handedly fought off the advances of the
orcs, whacking their dumb heads with my hoopak and dodging their clumsy
blows! I dodged in, spun, stabbed out! BAM! DEAD ORC! Dodge! Parry! HA! DEAD
ORC! It was quite thrilling! Oh yes, Saul and Glaykor helped too. I
retrieved Maeglin's ring from the corpse of the orc captain as Glaykor laid
the badly mangled corpse of a bunny rabbit to rest. Sadly, the poor bunny
had gotten caught in the crossfire and was trampled to death during the
fight. We will miss him.
Unfortunately upon returning to Maeglin I was forced to give the ring I
found to him. It really was a nice ring, shiny and smooth, and it fit well
on my finger. On the bright side though, Maeglin paid the three of us for
retrieving his ring, getting revenge on the orcs, and rescuing his daughter.
As the two prepared to depart I was so distracted by the beautiful Allasse
that I somehow had acquired Saul's share of the reward as well! Not wanting
to embarrass myself I returned it to him without him noticing and then waved
goodbye to Maeglin and Allasse.
