Dark Rider – Corwick’s Wish
“I have lead you wrongly Dark Rider… The Work appears to be little, and the Mercenaries Plentiful…” The Dark Rider put his hand on Largoth’s shoulder “You Worry too much old friend”. Just then an Elven
“I have need of your services… And your friend if you wish” “I wish…” Dark Rider replied. “You see this woman…”
“Corwick eh…” “The Girl’s Father” the Priest replied. “Alright… That wont be a problem” Dark Rider replied. “How much?” Largoth stepped forward. The Priest smirked, and handed Largoth a bag of gold “That should suffice…” Largoth looked to the Dark Rider, then back to the Priest. “Indeed… But why so lofty a sum?” The Dark Rider smacked Largroth on the arm “Let the man pay what he like…”. The Priest smirked again “Because of him…” the Priest pointed behind the Dark Rider where a huge Man Golem stood.
“GIVE ME THE GIRL HUMAN!!” the Golem demanded. “Right… Largoth get my Horse… And Grab one for yourself” spoke the Dark Rider… “I’ll deal with this” Largoth grabbed the girl, and took her with him to the stables. The Great Man Golem’s Eyes followed after. “Thank You Dark Rider, and Farewell…” the Priest spoke as he ran and disappeared into a nearby alleyway. “Grrr” Grunted the Man Golem.
“I can see you’re not much of a conversationalist…” the Dark Rider spoke to his Opponent. The Man Golem moved at the Dark Rider, but he was much too swift. As he avoided the blow, he drew forth his two swords and hit there sides against the Golems back throwing him off balance. The Man Golem made one more attempt at him, but was out maneuvered once more. “OTO SMASH LITTLE MAN!!” “Hmm… Being Six Foot Three, I can safely say I’ve never been called a “Little Man”" Suddenly Largroth appeared riding a tan horse, the girl was on Tribune. “RARRRGG!!” The Man Golem spewed as he charged once more, but the Dark Rider tripped the Golem, and used it’s back to mount Tribune. “Yah!!” he yelled, and the two horses fled. Atop a near by building The White Owl watched all, and quickly followed.
