CHAPTER I – Return To Jor

CHAPTER II – Laris

The trip to Polus from Jor, the southern Port of Galdur, would be an 8 to 10 day journey, depending on the winds…

Kinner and Chi played cards, and slept for the most part…

…while Ren peered out at the sea ahead of them.

In the drinking hall aboard ship, there was music and dancing, and on the first night of their trip, Ren at last entered…

In the middle table, surrounded by many a drunk man, was a quite unusual site…

A dark haired woman, in green with gold trimmed armour, and golden leaves all about her chainmail…

…as well as a glorious shield that was propped up against her table green, and gold trimmed like her armour, but with a golden oak tree in the middle of it.

She seemed to be out drinking them all, but held her wits…

…she sang as the musicians played music.

Though she could not hardly hold a tune, her spirit was truly into it.

Ren approached the bartender, “Pardon sir, might you be able to tell me who that girl is?”

“Ah, yeah, that’s LARIS… She’s a Green Knight,” he spoke unfamiliar words, then went back to work.

Ren sat on a stool and watched, “A Green Knight…” he spoke under his breath.

An hour or so later the girl approached the bar near where Ren was sitting, “Haren, could you grab my tab for me…” she spoke, then turned and stared at Ren, who was likewise staring at her.

“You’ve been watching me for a quite a while Tiefling… If you’re looking for a night, you won’t be getting it from me,” she spoke.

The bartender brought her, her tab, and she paid, plus a few silver in tip.

“Could you tell me, what is a Green Knight?” Ren boldly asked.

She paused, then sat down beside him, “Well, that’s what some call us Paladins of the Ancients.”

“Paladin of the Ancients… I can’t say I have much familiarity with that Order…” spoke Ren.

“It’s not an Order, it’s an Oath… And most haven’t… Though we go back as far as the Elves beginnings, most Paladins take an Oath of DEVOTION… And on occasion, an Oath of VENGEANCE, CONQUEST or REDEMPTION…”

“Interesting…” replied Ren.

“I need to sleep…” she begins to walk away, then turns to face Ren, “What’s your name Tiefling?”

“It’s Ren…” he replies.

She nods, then disappears into the sleeping quarters of the ship.

OUT OF GAME

“Alright Sis, would you tell us a bit about your Paladin, Laris…” speaks Johnny.

“Sure… She’s a 3rd Level Paladin of the Ancients… She has long black hair, which she normally keeps in a braid… Green eyes… She has fair skin, she’s 5’7″ tall, and weighs about 130 pounds… She looks to be in her mid twenties,” she describes.

“Thank you Sis, we can continue,” replies Johnny.

The next morning Ren finds Chi and Kinner playing some more cards…

“May I join?” he asks.

“Of course, always enjoy taking money from a friend,” replies Kinner playfully.

“Would you look at her,” speaks Chi…

…Ren and Kinner look back, and it’s Laris.

“Don’t get your hopes up, she’s a Paladin,” speaks Ren.

“You know her?” questions Chi in surprise.

“I can’t say I ‘know’ her, but I did have the honor of meeting her last night…” replies Ren.

“An honor, eh,” comes Laris’s voice from behind Ren.

“Care if I join you boys,” she adds.

“Surely,” replies Chi enthusiastically.

The four of them play for hours, telling stories, drinking, eating and making merry.
