The Dragon Feasts Alone…

Golden worth thoughts

Sharpened Fangs…

Eyes Fixed Brightly on the prize

The Prize So Sweet…

It’s soft Breath

And Warm Tone…

Leaves him wanting so badly…

So badly it hurts

The Plummeting begins…

Her Soft, warm, inviting eyes

How can he eat Such a thing…

Dragon wait, there is more…

And So it Sleeps, and Sleeps

She touches him Softly while he sleeps…

He does not know this

And when Sun rises…

He is angered…

Angered that She dost live on

Not digested…

Love contested

Pride is on the rise…

He Stomps and Flaps

Smoke Fire Rises…

And than She Sings her Song…

And he is young…

His eyes are Small

She quietly Snaps the Chains…

And approaches his heart…

He is afraid…

He is always afraid

Except when She is near…

black and white 17New Boy

Far atop the Kildo Mountains, Olock, the young dragon rider, sits upon his black dragon Spellbor’s back, looking down over the vast forests of Nedill.

And as he does, great bellowing smoke rises from the elven city of Qu iie.

The last of the elven cities has fallen… I don’t know why some part of me would hope to be surprised… But… I’m not.

This final blow places the Orc Leaders of Rok No Tu fully in control of the Land of Nebtoran.

It’s been a long, blood spilled campaign of pain and suffering for both the Humans, and Elves.

But the truth is, the Rok No Tu got the upper hand in the beginning, and have never looked back.

“Come on now Spellbor… Home,” speaks Olock as he pulls lightly on Spellbor’s reigns.

“Hardly a home if you ask me, Olock…” replies Spellbor as he takes to the air in a great swoop.

“Well I didn’t ask you, now did I…” replies Olock, and both the dragon rider, and dragon have a laugh.

One day from now, Spellbor and I will be on our way to the northern territories.

There are many small villages in the forests there, and so I won’t have a problem finding any sort of supplies.

And by night I will stay with Spellbor in the over looking mountains.

The northern villages are of little, or no importance to the Rok No Tu Orcs, so they’re likely to leave us alone.

At least for a while anyway.

The Humans had their reign, and have faltered…

Sad that the Elven Kingdoms got involved, and at what cost… The last of their cities destroyed.

Spellbor and Olock arrive at their home in a large cave, and both lay down to go to sleep…

Spellbor, of course, taking up most of the cave.

The Dwarves have returned to their mines… Hell, they did that as soon as the Humans went to battle with the Orcs… They knew what was coming.

They certainly aren’t impressed with anything the Humans do, or have done.

And with the Four Warlocks Of Manbetu in their great sleep, the Orcs should have a long and prosperous reign.

And so I and Spellbor will leave…

Why should the Orcs care… Right?

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress Of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

Chapter XXVIII – Shadow Wizards

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

KING ETERR’S CASTLE

THE NORTHERN TOWER

The top of the Northern Tower, blown off by The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd’s great lightning, which he had summoned from his staff… King Eterr looks upon The Great Black Dragon Moskk…

On the Dragon’s back, King Eterr’s Queen Sorceress Olamna, her hands tied behind her back, and mouth gagged.

“RELEASE OLMANA MOSKK!!… THIS IS NOT A DRAGON’S AFFAIR…” bellowed King Eterr to Moskk…

“YOU DARE TELL ME WHAT A “DRAGON’S” AFFAIR IS NOW, EH… MORTAL…” replies Moskk in a Dragon esq growl…

Suddenly the second Shadow Wizard, the one with the eye patch, in a flash of lavender light, appears upon the back of Moskk…

“EEM KNYY” he speaks, and Olamna’s binds and gag disappear.

“NO…” Hemmingbyrd speaks under his breath.

With this Queen Sorceress Olmana stands straight up upon Moskk’s back, and raises her hands into the air…

“FREE!!” she yells.

And before Moskk can react, she teleports both her, and the Shadow Wizard, off of the dragon in a flash of blue green light.

King Eterr sneers, and raises his great black blade above Hemmingbyrd “And now to dispatch with you…”

But just as he goes to strike Hemmingbyrd down, The Blue Wizard teleports himself onto Moskk’s back…

CHINGG!!” his sword strikes the tower rock where Hemmingbyrd had only moments ago stood.

“NOOO!!!” Eterr lets out, and casts his gaze of rage towards Hemmingbyrd who is now on Moskk’s back.

Just then Moskk starts to take a deep breath in…

King Eterr realizing what is about to happen, jumps down the stairs, but before he strikes the ground one level down, the Great Ice Breath of Moskk fills the better half of the tower with Ice, freezing King Eterr mid fall…

THE ROYAL COURTYARD

Meanwhile the remaining six Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom stumble out into the Royal Courtyard, only to come face to face with the Second Male Golem, and his Great Axe…

SWOOOSHH!!!

HACKKK!!” he strikes two of the Knights, cutting them completely in half.

AHHHHH!!!!” they yell, as the other four dive behind Royal Bushes.

“Great Scott!!” speaks Sir Elm who can see what has occurred from the fountain where the Female Statue turns to face him, after whacking Agatha some hundred feet away.

SWOOSH!!” just then Tu Masa swoops down, picks up Sir Elm with one of her Dragon Claws, and tosses him onto her back…

“HOLD ON HUMAN!!” yells Tu Masa, as she quickly heads straight into the air, just barely avoiding being whacked with the Warrior Statue’s Spear.

Meanwhile one hundred feet away, Morr tends to Agatha, who is knocked unconscious from the Great Golems mighty blow… Her Black hair, once again golden blond, and face bloodied slightly…

He touches her face “You have to wake Agatha… We need you…” a blood tear comes to his eye, and he quickly wipes it away.

“How Touching…” Morr hears a woman’s voice speak from behind him, and he quickly turns to see that it’s Queen Sorceress Olamna, and by her side the one eyed Shadow Wizard…. Morr’s eyes glow a fierce yellow, as he exposes his fangs and claws.

“A Vampire in love with a Mortal…” she continues.

“How quaint…” she finishes.

Just as Morr moves to attack Olamna, The Shadow Wizard brings forth a beam of what appears to be sunlight…

Morr jumps back as the light strikes between Olmana and Agatha.

“HaHaHa!!” Olmana lets out a cackle, and then pulls Agatha to her with her staff… Agath hovers over to her, and Morr, not thinking comes at Olamna again, and this time The Shadow Wizard’s beam of sunlight strikes him down…

“SCREEETCCHHH!!” he lets out a scream, and falls to the ground.

“Bring him…” she speaks as she then teleports herself and Agatha out of the courtyard.

The Shadow Wizard bows slightly in agreement.

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XXII – Into The Belly of The Beast

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

KING ETERR’S CASTLE

Inside the Left Tower of King Eterr’s Castle, Agatha’s Party all stand ready…

“What are we going to be dealing with here Hemmingbyrd…” Agatha plainly states, her Glowing Blue Eyes Full of Fire.

“The Archers Agatha and I slayed at The Path of The Forsaken’s bodies are gone…” Morr interjects.

“Which means we’re dealing with some sort of “Necromancer”…” replies The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd with a scratch of a chin.

“Or Shadow Wizards…” interjects Iliad.

Hemmingbyrd looks at Iliad “Hopefully not Shadow Wizards… But Iliad’s right, it could be Shadow Wizards… In which case, be extra careful”.

“Other than that… It is hard to say who King Eterr has summoned to do his bidding” Hemmingbyrd concludes.

“Enough Waiting!!” Growls Jodan in his Dark Wolf Man Form, and he starts to head down the spiral staircase.

“Right” replies Sir Elm who then begins down the stairs, followed closely by the 7 Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom…

Agatha’s next, followed by Morr and Hemmingbyrd…

Iliad is now alone in the tower “Oh dear” he says to himself, and then starts down the stairs.

THE THRONE ROOM OF KING ETERR

The Clawed steps of Jodan enter the now Empty Throne Room of King Eterr…

Though it is empty and dismal, The Great Green Orb of Da-tok hovers as it always does, before the throne…

Jodan starts to move slowly towards it, knowing that there is always a hidden exit behind the Throne, the only sound he can hear is that of his Claws, and his Deep Barreling Breath.

Hissssss” when suddenly a harrowing Hisssss comes from somewhere in the shadows.

THE NORTHERN HALLWAY OF THE THIRD LEVEL OF THE CASTLE

Sir Elm, Two Handed Great Sword Drawn, edges his way down the curved Hallway… Never knowing what might be waiting for him…

Just as he comes around a bend he hears something of the “Sound of Death”, and comes to a sudden halt…

FOOMMMMPHHH!! FOOMMMMPHHH!! FOOMMMMPHHH!!

Just as he does, Three Dark Arrows Strike the wall across from him, where his chest would have been…

Each dripping with a glowing green liquid poison.

“Good God” he says under his breath, and suddenly starts to run in the opposite direction…

CLANK CLANK! CLANK!!” makes the sound of his Armor as the “Sound of Death” can be heard some thirty feet behind him.

THE CASTLES CENTER COURTYARD

Morr has found his way out into the Center of the Castle, which is a Great Courtyard…

Within it are Many Large Carefully, and “Royally” Cut Bushes… Each in some Form that seems to take on a life of it’s own.

When he reaches the center of the Courtyard, there is a Huge Fountain, and by it’s side, one on the left, one on the right, are Two Great Metal Statues… One of a Female Warrior with a Great Spear, and the other a Warrior Man, with a Great Axe… Each standing maybe 15′ Tall.

“Ok… Suddenly I don’t feel as if I’m alone…” he says under his breath, and with this the Woman Warrior begins to move…

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XXI – Infiltrate

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

KING ETERR’S CASTLE

As Tu Masa Sweeps in to the Left Tower of Kink Eterr’s Castle, Agatha takes note of Morr who is scaling the side of the tower at an ungodly rate of speed…

Tu Masa holds flight mid air by the Window of the Tower…

“GO!!” yells Agatha to the 7 Knights of the Dark Fortress of Doom… And one by one they leap into the window, and go inside the Tower Chamber… By now Morr is at the window, clinging to the wall with one hand, and guiding the Knights through the window with the other…

Immediately upon entering the Tower Chambers, each of the Knights Draws their Long Swords… And readies their selves for anything.

Meanwhile outside the window Agatha nods at Morr, who nods back in return…

“I’ll call you if I need you” she says Tu Masa, as she holds up the Horn that Tu Masa had given her…

“Oh… You’ll need me” Tu Masa replies in return, in her now Dragon Voice.

Agatha then leaps through the window, followed by Morr, and Tu Masa flies away to let Moskk fly beside the Window.

Inside Morr approaches Agatha, reaches inside his shirt, and pulls off the Silver Necklace with the Blue Amulet that Agatha had placed upon him at the Path of The Forsaken…. Where they Captured The Queen Sorceres Olamna.

“Here… And Thank you” he says as he hands it to her… She reluctantly takes it.

“You’re welcome Morr” she replies.

Next through the Window comes Jodan in Dark Man Wolf Form, His Red Eyes Glowing, sending a jolt of fear through the Dark Fortress Knights.

And Then Sir Elm of TardenwhalHello” he says with a wave at Agatha…

Without thought Agatha jumps to Sir Elm’s Side, and places the Protective Necklace around him… “You may need this more than I” she says.

He touches the necklace and “Why… Thank You” he says with a smile.

Morr is not thrilled by this…

“What is wrong with me” Morr thinks to himself.

Meanwhile outside the Window a Bustle can be heard as Iliad does not want to leap through the Window.

“Go You Fool!!” Hemmingbyrd yells at Iliad.

“I’M OF NO USE TO YOU!!” Iliad yells as he looks way, way… Way down below.

“I AM BUT A FOOL!!” Iliad proclaims.

Suddenly, without warning, Agatha comes leaping through the air, landing on Moskk… She then grabs Iliad, and tosses him through the Window, where Morr catches him.

“OOFFF!!” he sounds as he lands.

He then pulls away from Morr very quickly, and adjusts his “Fool’s Attire”.

“No trouble here… I’m just fine” Iliad informs everyone, who all basically stand there staring at The Fool… Fearing he might be the end of them all.

Save Agatha who doesn’t doubt Iliad at all.

Agatha then leaps back through the window, followed by The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd, who in a Glow of Blue Light, Floats into the chamber, landing gracefully.

“You know you could have thrown some magic my way out there” Iliad suddenly says to Hemmingbyrd as he points his finger accusingly at him.

Hemminbyrd pays him no mind.

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XX – The Game

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

King Eterr’s Black Castle of Noarawyn sits upon The Great Mountain Rock, with two tall black towers sticking out of the middle of it…

Beneath it Forests and Snow…

Agatha, upon the Great Grey Dragon Tu Masa, is the first to arrive in the skies just south of The Castle… Also upon Tu Masa’s back, are the remaining Seven Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom…

As the Castle comes into view Tu Masa brings forward movement to a halt, and holds their position in the southern sky…

Agatha’s hair has stayed black for all of the flight, and her eyes Glow Bright Blue northbound, towards the Great Castle…

Moments later Moskk arrives, carrying Hemmingbyrd, Iliad, Jodan, Sir Elm and the tied up and gagged Queen Sorceress Olamna…

Moskk flies up besides Tu Masa, and Agatha can feel the warm wind of his great wings…

Morr on the other hand is making his own way to the castle, and should be here soon.

“THERE IT IS!! KING ETERR’S GREAT BLACK NORARAWYN CASTLE!! speaks Jodan loudly.

“AYE!” Sir Elm replies.

Agatha then points at the left tower “THERE!! THAT IS WHERE WE WILL ENTER THE CASTLE!!”.

Hemmingbyrd simply nods in agreement.

“WE’RE LEAVING QUEEN SORCERESS OLAMNA TIED UP UPON MOSKK’S BACK!!” Hemmingbyrd exclaims.

“MOSKK HAS GIVEN US THIS HORN SHOULD WE NEED TO CALL UPON HIM!!” with this Hemmingbyrd holds up a great horn.

He’s about to toss it to Agatha, but then she holds up a horn as well “KEEP IT!! I HAVE A HORN AS WELL FROM TU MASA!!”…

Hemmingbyrd nods again, and straps Moskk’s Summoning Horn across his back.

“LETS GO!!” Agatha hollers, and Tu Masa continues her flight, sweeping through the air heading towards the Left Tower…

Mossk follows right behind…
