Chapter XVIII Of Kait’s Retelling or our 3+ Year Dungeons & Dragons Campaign, ‘Adventures of Vilven Ledsong’

Adventures of Vilven Ledsong

His serene yet wild face appeared nearly frozen despite the strong wind dancing into him.

She felt cautious of his presence. Why was he here? Though she had lived most of her life in solitude, she learned to rely on her instincts and insight. She had been gifted with perceptiveness, something she had always been grateful for.

The talking from the other passengers became a distant hum behind her, darkness surrounded them as if they were the only two on the boat.

“Hello, Vilven” He said with some humor, a slight smile coming to his darkly striking face. That smile she had seen a few times in his bookstore that always seemed unexpected.

There was something else, Vilven could tell beneath his disarming introduction. For the first time, she was coming into an awareness she must be more careful. She loved bringing new comrades with her, even with the limited…

Chapter I – Oz Ryder

Chapter II -Allone

CHAPTER III – Magnanus

High within a darkened tower, within the Ohr’Dra Peaks, scrambling his way through scrolls and items of importance, the Shadow Mage (Sorcerer) Minotaur, Magnanus, gathers his things and any proof he can get his hands on…

…but proof of what?

Magnanus stands 7′ tall, with dark brown fur, and though his form is large, his power lays within his blood more than his body

His form covered in a light purple glow with black smoke as he moves through the hallways, and makes his way out of his Master’s Tower

With one look back, he then heads north through the peaks towards the Great Woods

But even though she helps with so many aspects of her village during the day, at night… she trains

CHAPER I – Oz Ryder

In the ‘Kandria Woods’, south of the ‘Two Cities’, there lay a Rabbitfolk in the middle of a sun shiney field…

His arms behind his head, he gazes at the sun in the sky above…

…blue skies, and billowy clouds

‘What a perfect day,’ he spoke in a knightly manner, his soft yellow eyes filled with the wonders of nature… including a coolish warmish breeze that made its’ way through his light grey and white fur

‘Oh Ander, must you leave?’ came a voice from a nearby cluster of yellow and purple flowers where a brownish furred Rabbitfolk girl by the name of ROSAIA picks a grouping of flowers, and makes her way back to her male companion

‘Oz Ryder, Rosaia… I told you, I’m not taking my father’s name into my new profession… My…

CHAPTER I – War At Dawn

Ghost sits by himself, between many a dark, tall tree, looking down upon the valley filled with enemy knights…

From the darkness behind him, one of the woman Fighters crawls up beside him

‘You really shouldn’t be so far away from camp…’

Ghost is silent

‘The battle isn’t until sun break, what good is it losing sleep and just watching them?’

He looks at her, his elven grey eyes piercing her blue human…

…his focus then returns to the army below

‘Alright, alright, I can take a hint…’

She starts to crawl away when-

‘It’s my fault that she’s dead…’ he speaks

Aladra is confused by this, ‘She? Who is she…’

He doesn’t reply

NIGHTINGALE

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…

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…
