Tales of The Dark Rider – Kin

THE MOUNTAINS OF EDECK

Some 7 or so miles from the Dark Cave where The Dark Rider is being held captive… The Grey Ranger Flynn Rider and his Party Track their way up the mountain…

With him, the Young Ranger Theliad Rider… Nephew to Flynn.

And his trained Wolf, Earqui.

And Bringing up the rear…

The Gentle Warrior, Axxafor.

“All of this climbing, makes Axxafor a very sad Warrior…” exclaims Axxafor as he trudges along.

“Come along Axxafor… You’re putting us behind schedule… Soon the Sun shall set…” replies Theliad.

“That is my intention…” interjects Flynn… “Send the Wolf ahead Theliad, we need not be ambushed by Troglodytes and such…” Flynn issues.

“GO EARQUI!!” Theliad Commands, and Earqui runs off ahead.

 

 

A DARK CAVE FURTHER UP THE MOUNTAIN

The Dark Rider tries his best to break free of his Magical Chains…

To no avail…

“WHY DON’T YOU KILL ME COWARD!!” he yells out, barely able to maintain his consciousness, as he has been wounded, and under fed.

“OR DO YOU FEAR THE WRATH OF MY GHOST, WHO WILL SURELY TAKE YOU IN YOUR SLEEP!!” he continues, but The Scarlet Bandit does not come.

THE SOUTHERN VALLEY

HOME TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF MEDUN

Ukorian and his Comrades of The Brotherhood of Medun, Eat, Drink, Sing and make Merry…

“Ohhhh… The Roads Shall Come… And The Roads Shall Go… The Nights Are Long… And Enemies Shall Come…”

Ukorian senses something, and walks away from the fire where he finds Iloh.

“ILOH! IS THAT YOU” he is very happy to see her, and takes her into his arms and swings her about… Until he notices her somber brow.

“What is it Iloh?” he inquires.

“Ems and Largoth are dead… Slane by Assassins from the North…” she replies.

“What… That’s impossible… Why me and my men just saw Ems a week ago… He was alive and well” Ukorian insists.

“Largoth was killed four nights ago, at his home… Fortunately he had sent his Wife and Sons away… But I fear for them as well” she explains, as Ukorian looks on in utter shock.

“And Ems was taken down within his Tavern three nights ago, along with the Patrons that were there at the time… It doesn’t appear that they’re shooting for discreet… This smells of Revenge…” she explains.
