Tales of The Dark Rider – Blood Shall Fall

RODOMOR

HOME OF LARGOTH

Largoth stands outside his home with his two sons, and his wife… All but Largoth is mounted.

I don’t understand why you are sending us away my love… When shall you join us?” questions his wife Lila.

Soon Lila… Soon” Largoth kisses his Wife’s hand.

Now off with you… The three of you” Largoth swats Lila’s horse on the rear, and it rides off.

Goodbye Father…” speaks Alaynon, his youngestThough both are strong full grown Elves now.

Goodbye Father” speaks Fleenon, Largoth’s Eldest.

And they both ride off, catching up to their Mother.

TWO NIGHTS LATER

Largoth sits in the pitch black in the middle of his living room.

Fully armed… Sharpening his Ornate Dagger, a Family Heirloom, and gift from his Father.

Suddenly he stops sharpening it, grabs his bow, and heads to the top of the house.

There he leaves through one of the bedroom windows, and is now on the roof.

From there he scours his property with his Elven Night Vision.

Suddenly he looks behind him, and he is no longer alone.

Looking for me Elf…” the Assassin speaks almost in a whisper.

Largoth attempts to draw his bow, but is quickly disarmed and knocked down, his lip bleeding.

Who are you? Why have you come” Largoth speaks.

The Assassin laughs a bit “Lets just say… The Scarlet Bandit gives you his regards” he then cuts Largoth’s throat before he say another thing.

“And now for his Wife and Boys” he says, and then disappears into the cold night.

FAR TO THE EAST

THE DUCK’S WIND TAVERN

Em’s cleans his bar, as he is the Inn Keeper and Owner of the Tavern.

There are a few very drunk customers, but they are just about passed out.

A slow night, but Em’s doesn’t mind… Money is not something he needs.

Through with cleaning, he sits with a Tankard of Ale to finish up a long night.

As he sips slowly upon his drink, he suddenly takes note of a hooded figure standing in the rain outside the Tavern’s great front window.

What in thee hell…” he speaks under his breath.

 

None in the Tavern would survive that night…

Including Ems.

 

 

 

 

 

THE ELVEN KINGDOM OF TORUM

Iloh meets with the Elven Prince Venopree.

Then we have a deal…” she questions the Prince.

Suddenly a Messenger comes into Prince Venepree’s meeting chambers, and hands him a scroll message.

Hmm…” the Prince says out loud, then looks at Iloh.

Bad News My Prince…” Iloh questions.

It seems that two of your Old Companions, Ems, and Largoth, have both been slane” Iloh just stares at him…

At first tears start to well up in her eyes, then stop…

Sadness quickly becomes Rage.

She turns and walk out of the room.

Wait there woman! You dare walk out on a Prince!!” he calls after.
