CHAPTER XIII – North To Drudgek

On the 5th night since Zahn and Tor-Armitus’s arrival to the Warrior City of Jor, the two of them decided to drink quite a lot as they looked over the Map of Galdur, trying to determine their first destination.

While doing this, Tor-Atimus caught wind of the conversation between two individuals at the nearest table.

“Stacy… Conner, do you mind describing your Characters at the table,” spoke Johnny, the Dungeon Master of the game.

“Uh… My Character is a Female, Blue Dragonborn… She’s about 6′ tall, 230 pounds, with dark emerald green eyes… She looks to be about 20… She’s wearing dark brown leather Armour, and has a Long Bow on her back. At her sides are two Hand Axes.” (Full Character Description Here)

“How about you Connor,” speaks Johnny.

“Sure… My Character is a Moon Elf… He has violet eyes, bluish white skin, and bright fire engine red hair. He’s about 5’10” tall, around 130 pounds, so he’s lean… Though he’s 95 years old, he looks only to be in his low twenties to Humans.”

“He’s wearing a long dark green cloak with a hood, currently pulled down… Leaning against the table is a Short Bow, and at his side is a Short Sword. He’s wearing light brown leather Armour.” (Full Character Description Here)

“Alright, lets continue,” speaks Johnny.

“Both the Dragonborn, and the Elf are laughing, though they are not speaking in a Common Tongue…” continues Johnny.

“My Paladin Tor-Atimus will attempt to recognize what Language they’re speaking by rolling against his Intelligence Score,” continues Johnny.

“He rolls a 19+ his Intelligence Modifier of +2, so he rolled a 21,” Johnny concludes

Tor-Artimus recognizes the Language as Elven, but he does not speak it… He nudges Zahn as he points to locations on the Galdur Map…

…this gets Zahn’s attention, he looks up at Tor-Atimus and sees him gesturing to try and listen to what the Dragonborn and Elf are saying.

Zahn, who speaks Elven, listens.

“So you came all the way south from Speahr Torn seeking Adventure, eh,” speaks the Dragonborn.

“Well, Jor is the place to be if you’re seeking Adventure,” replies the Elf.

“What about you, you say you come from Krieg, can’t say that I’ve ever traveled there, though I’ve heard Oto’ra Port has a decent tavern,” continues the Elf.

There conversation peaks Zahn’s interest, he turns, and faces them, “Hello there…” he speaks in Common Tongue.

This seems to disrupt the Dragonborn and Elves conversation…

…they ignore him, and continue talking.

“Do you not speak Common?” Zahn asks now in Elven…

…this seems to bug the Dragonborn, and so she stands, “Listening in on our conversations, eh,” she growls more than speaks.

The Elf laughs, “It’s alright,” he gestures to the Dragonborn to sit.

“Do you mind if we speak Common, my friend here does not speak Elven,” Zahn gestures towards Tor-Atimus.

“Sure…” replies the Elf.

“May we sit?” Zahn asks, but neither seem interested in the proposition.

“Very well, my name is Zahn… I am of the Apollo Order from an Island called Torm, in the land of Despa.

“So you’re a Cleric,” speaks the Dragonborn.

Zahn nods.

“I am STIGUS, and my friend here’s name is CHI,” the Dragonborn explains.

“I don’t know if you saw my poster,” Zahn points to his poster on the job/wanted wall across the tavern.

“I couldn’t help but hear what you were talking about, and sounds like, at least you,” he gestures towards Chi, “Are seeking Adventure,” Zahn finishes with a slight smile.

Chi takes a longer look at the poster, “Two to three months? Where are you heading?”

“Well, to start, we thought we’d head to the Barbarian Lands of Drudgek… I heard you say you were from Speahr Torn?” speaks Zahn.

Chi nods, “I thought you, and your friend here as well, might like to escort us north… Interested?” finishes Zahn.

Chi looks fairly enthralled… Stigus shrugs…

“Why not… 20 Gold a week isn’t something to wince at… We’re in,” proclaims Chi.

The rest of the night the four of them swap stories a bit, then turn in.

In the morning Tor-Atimus notifies the Tiefling Wizard Ren, and as they all get their horse ready to leave, Kinner, the Drow Bard appears, and joins them as well.

“North then,” speaks Zahn, and the 6 riders are off.

OUT OF GAME

“And that’s it for our Second Session… I hope you all enjoyed it… Same time next week, hope to see all of you there!” speaks Johnny.

All seem tired after a four hour Session, but excited as well.
