NIGHTINGALE

by Doragon

CHAPTER I – Shadowfell

DEEP WITHIN THE DARK ENCHANTED FOREST OF ELDWYLL

50 MILES WEST OF GLOOMWROUGHT

WITHIN THE PLANE OF SHADOWFELL

A young (Well, young for Elves) Grey Elf girl sits high in the branches of a dark twisted tree…

Her hair a light grey, her skin grey as well, but a bit darker, and her eyes a dark, dark blue

Clad in a long dark blue cape and hood, her father’s finely crafted longbow upon her back…

…she is a Gloom Stalker… A… Ranger

She waits

The night and forest is dark, save the blue light cast upon the glades, like the one before her

She waits for the familiar clanging sound of gold against gold, within a pouch, upon the waist of the Shadar Kai Soldier whom comes to her

‘CLANG CLANG CLANG’

He arrives, three other soldiers behind him…

He steps into the…

THAYDES BLACK RAVEN – THE NECROMANCER

by DORAGON

Episode One – Departure

Thaydex’s upbringing, was… well… challenging

The son of a Human girl/woman, and a High Elf/Gray Elf man, his surroundings were of two worlds…

…and his look, stark black hair, fair skin, with light blue gray eyes, 5’8″ height and 140lbs at the age of 15

Thaydex’s mother, being Human, the most prevalent Race in their land…

…looked down upon by, well, High Elves/Gray Elves

She desired a simple, well lived life for herself, and her family

Where Thaydex’s father was an intellect, his face often buried in books, he wished only to be left alone, leaving Thaydex’s mother to raise him

Obviously his parents did not truly know one another before getting married, and having a baby

Thaydex was what many might call, dark

His meaning and intent was not to hurt anyone, but he carried with him…

The Barbarian Proud

by DORAGON

EPISODE ONE

Episode II – To Find A Warrior

Proud and Seya made their way east through a white gray rocky terrain, Proud on a large brown mare named Heiress, and Seya on her grey stallion, Spirit.

‘So are you going to tell me about this dream?’ she asked him.

Proud was quiet for a moment more, then ‘We have to find a great warrior in a dark cavern east of here…’

‘The dream Proud?’ she repeated.

He looked over at her, ‘He was in it.’

She shakes her head, trying not to laugh, ‘This is so unlike you, you have no idea how strange this is,’ she replied.

‘I know.’

********

That night they set camp amongst the rocks.

Seya being a ranger, did all the cooking whilst traveling…

…while this night, Proud sat and looked at the sky.

Seya noted his odd behavior…

EPISODE ONE – The Rise

“I Woke From A Dream, Covered In Sweat…

…this has never occurred…

…not to me”

Rising from his bed in a tavern in ‘Rusk’, is the formidable form of ‘PROUD’, a 7′ tall, golden haired barbarian.

Though he is muscular, he is more long and lean, than bulky.

Naked, with two girls passed out (Also naked) in his bed, he clothes in soft white armour, retrieves his enormous two handed axe, which is leaning against the corner, near the door…

…tosses two silver coins on the bed, and leaves.

********

‘BAM BAM BAM!’ Proud stands outside a door to another room, pounding away on it.

‘Seya! Rise!’ he hollers, awaking many other tenants, several opening their door to yell at whomever had woke them…

…then slowly closing their doors with one look at the enormity of Proud.

Meanwhile, inside the…

The room of the inn was spacious, decorated in rich, natural colors. It emulated the rest of the Wood Elf village of Willant. The nights were quiet here, but for the occasional expression of life from the nocturnal critters who let their presence be known outside.

Vilven laid in bed, moving onto her back to stare at the rough, wood ceiling. She was restless, her mind unable to calm despite the peaceful environment. She was exceedingly thrilled Jo Jo Bar the Bard had agreed to join them in their travel. A smile coming to her even now thinking of his exceptionally warm music and presence. Another companion. It felt good to not feel so alone, as she had felt…

At Beaden’s disgruntled request they made their way to the tavern of Willant, Beaden pushing his way past them to lead like a dehydrated horse.

Vilven stared at his back as he rushed through. She went along with the group decision, though she wasn’t sure she was all that excited about it. Vilven had never seen a tavern before the one in Warden, and after that experience she felt taverns were nice enough, but she found herself more fascinated by the people of Willant. It was as Grid had told her, these elves seemed to hold no initial resentment toward them. Instead, they looked pleasantly toward them with gentle, peaceful eyes. Though, Vilven noticed, they did look at her

EPISODE III

The Rogue Girl appointed herself as ‘on watch’, being the Paladin Sir Stalos had laid down and gone straight to sleep.

“He hasn’t even asked me my name yet, what kind of Knight is this…” She spoke, as she sat and leaned back against the main tree that kept them from the rain.

An hour or so later, her gut told her she was being watched…

…when suddenly a crossbow bolt struck the tree right by her head!

Her eyes went wide, “Sir Stalos! We have company!”

With this the Paladin systematically rose from his slumber, clutching his long sword with both hands, and eyes glowing white glancing at the bold in the tree, “Hobgoblins…”

At his feet is his breast plate, but he’s still wearing his chainmail.

He looks over at the girl whose climbing the…
