Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XXI – Infiltrate

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

KING ETERR’S CASTLE

As Tu Masa Sweeps in to the Left Tower of Kink Eterr’s Castle, Agatha takes note of Morr who is scaling the side of the tower at an ungodly rate of speed…

Tu Masa holds flight mid air by the Window of the Tower…

“GO!!” yells Agatha to the 7 Knights of the Dark Fortress of Doom… And one by one they leap into the window, and go inside the Tower Chamber… By now Morr is at the window, clinging to the wall with one hand, and guiding the Knights through the window with the other…

Immediately upon entering the Tower Chambers, each of the Knights Draws their Long Swords… And readies their selves for anything.

Meanwhile outside the window Agatha nods at Morr, who nods back in return…

“I’ll call you if I need you” she says Tu Masa, as she holds up the Horn that Tu Masa had given her…

“Oh… You’ll need me” Tu Masa replies in return, in her now Dragon Voice.

Agatha then leaps through the window, followed by Morr, and Tu Masa flies away to let Moskk fly beside the Window.

Inside Morr approaches Agatha, reaches inside his shirt, and pulls off the Silver Necklace with the Blue Amulet that Agatha had placed upon him at the Path of The Forsaken…. Where they Captured The Queen Sorceres Olamna.

“Here… And Thank you” he says as he hands it to her… She reluctantly takes it.

“You’re welcome Morr” she replies.

Next through the Window comes Jodan in Dark Man Wolf Form, His Red Eyes Glowing, sending a jolt of fear through the Dark Fortress Knights.

And Then Sir Elm of TardenwhalHello” he says with a wave at Agatha…

Without thought Agatha jumps to Sir Elm’s Side, and places the Protective Necklace around him… “You may need this more than I” she says.

He touches the necklace and “Why… Thank You” he says with a smile.

Morr is not thrilled by this…

“What is wrong with me” Morr thinks to himself.

Meanwhile outside the Window a Bustle can be heard as Iliad does not want to leap through the Window.

“Go You Fool!!” Hemmingbyrd yells at Iliad.

“I’M OF NO USE TO YOU!!” Iliad yells as he looks way, way… Way down below.

“I AM BUT A FOOL!!” Iliad proclaims.

Suddenly, without warning, Agatha comes leaping through the air, landing on Moskk… She then grabs Iliad, and tosses him through the Window, where Morr catches him.

“OOFFF!!” he sounds as he lands.

He then pulls away from Morr very quickly, and adjusts his “Fool’s Attire”.

“No trouble here… I’m just fine” Iliad informs everyone, who all basically stand there staring at The Fool… Fearing he might be the end of them all.

Save Agatha who doesn’t doubt Iliad at all.

Agatha then leaps back through the window, followed by The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd, who in a Glow of Blue Light, Floats into the chamber, landing gracefully.

“You know you could have thrown some magic my way out there” Iliad suddenly says to Hemmingbyrd as he points his finger accusingly at him.

Hemminbyrd pays him no mind.

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XVIII – The Grey Dragon Tu Masa

THE PLANES OF BOLON

CAVERN OF MOSKK

The White Haired Young man who had fallen out of the air, and slain The Dark Fortress Knight has yet to turn and face the rest of the party…

Sir Elm of Tardenwhal looks at Hemmingbyrd, and then takes two steps towards him.

“Ithnik… Ormta Elno” Sir Elm speaks to him in his best Dragon Talk.

The young man than kneels down, and takes the stolen gold from the fallen Knight.

“Aster… Amla Forten” replies the young man, who now turns and faces them… His Eyes more of a Glowing Fog, than an Eye Color.

“What did he say?” Hemmingbyrd whispers to Sir Elm.

The Young man now slowly circles the party tossing one gold coin at a time back into the piles of gold surrounding them.

“He says… “I Should Surely Kill You All”” replies Sir Elm.

“Lellum Breeno Gor Tzzze Tro Brillum Rorr Sshe” The Young Man hisses at the lot of them.

Hemmingbyrd looks at Sir Elm.

“You’re not going to like this…” exclaims Sir Elm.

“The Words… Sir Elm!” demands Hemmingbyrd.

“Leave your guts smeared across these Ancient Walls” replies Sir Elm.

“Good Lord” Iliad says without thinking.

Hemmingbyrd quickly looks at him with eyes of daggers.

“Speak your Tongue Mortal” The Young Man suddenly insists.

“We mean you no harm… Illustrious one…”

“Moskk” replies The Young Man.

“Then you are the Ancient One…” Hemmingbyrd interjects, but Moskk does not take his eyes off of Sir Elm, as he continues to circle the group.

“Speak again Wizard and you shall quickly meet your Maker” Moskk says to Hemmingbyrd without giving him a look.

“Illustrious– I mean, Moskk… Contrary to that Knight you just slayed, we have not come here for your “Great Treasure”” Sir Elm explains.

With this Moskk flies across the room, and pins Sir Elm by the throat, up against a cavern wall.

“Why have you come here Mortal??!!” demands Moskk.

“I’ve brought them here…” suddenly Agatha’s sweet voice enters the chamber.

Moskk releases Sir Elm, and turns towards Agatha and Morr who have just entered the Chamber.

Morr has the gagged, and hand tied Queen Sorceress Olamna in front of him.

Agatha’s Hair is Blond White, but quickly turns Black as she approaches him.

“That’s right Moskk… It’s been a long, long time” exclaims Agatha as she now stands some eight feet from him.

Iliad, Jodan and Hemmingbyrd all look a bit nervous by this.

“Daughter of Elias…” Moskk suddenly speaks as he approaches her, and takes her hand into his…

“It has been a long time” he speaks, and then kisses her hand, never breaking his gaze into her bright blue eyes.

“The day My Father introduced me to his Kingdom… You were there” Agatha explains.

“Aye… Indeed… Though I am surprised that you would remember such a thing, as you were just an infant” replies Moskk, who has now begun to lead the party into a great dining hall, where there is a large wood and golden table.

All of the party sit at the table at Moskk’s Insistence, via multiple hand waves indicating such.

Agatha reaches up and taps the side of her head “I don’t lose a thing” she then sits next to Moskk, who sits at the end of the long table.

“Well that’s not exactly true now is it…” insists Moskk who is actually smiling a bit now, as his eyes go from foggy, to silver.

He pours himself and Agatha a glass of Red Wine, and notices that no one is eating, even though the table is covered from end to end in food.

“Eat!” he announces, and so all of the very nervous party, then begins to eat… Save Hemmingbyrd, who is too busy listening to their conversation to bother with food, and Morr, who prefers blood.

“I hear you spent the last many years in another plane… That’s losing something a bit now, isn’t it” with this he and Agatha begin to laugh.

“Ha ha ha”

Iliad the Fool tries to eat, but is still mortified “This is very odd indeed” he says under his breath… Which is quickly met with Jodan hitting his shoulder.

“OWW!!” announces the Fool.

“Mind your manners Fool” Jodan demands, his eyes glowing slightly red.

“I’m afraid you are right Moskk… I have been lost for some time now… But I am home now” explains Agatha.

“You didn’t tell me you were having Guests Moskk… I would have worn my Black Dress” suddenly another woman’s voice enters the Dining Chamber… All look at the other end of the room, only to see a Beautiful Silver Haired Woman, barely dressed, other than silver strands of fabric, barely covering her… Well… You know.

With this Moskk stands “Tu Masa My Sweet… Let me Proudly introduce to you Princess Agatha… Daughter to none other than King Elias…”.

With this Hemmingbyrd leans back in his chair where Morr stands against the wall, the Queen Sorceress close by.

“Two Dragons… This could be a problem” he speaks to Morr, who nods slightly.

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XVII – The Dragon Truth

THE PLANES OF BOLON

CAVERN OF MOSKK

The Blue Wizard Hemmingbyrd, Jodan, Sir Elm of Tardenwhal, Iliad The Fool and The Eight Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom arrive at the Entrance of The Cavern of Moskk… The Black Dragon.

“Ok, now what…” Jodan speaks at Hemmingbyrd who adjusts his hat, and dismounts.

“How is it again that you intend to “Open a Dialog” with The Man Eating, Gold Hoarding Black Dragon of Bolon?” Jodan then questions.

Hemmingbyrd in turn glances over at Sir Elm of Tardenwhal who is dismounting as well.

“I speak Dragon Tongue” Sir Elm replies.

Jodan does not look amused, nor impressed.

“You do??!” replies Iliad the Fool, in a surprised tone.

“I do… And if this Dragon is to be My “Brother” in Arms… Than there’s definitely a discussion to be had” replies Sir Elm.

“Now I best go in there and talk to him” Sir Elm proclaims as he approaches the entrance.

“I shall accompany you” announces Hemmingbyrd as he steps forward staff in hand.

“So shall I!” Iliad suddenly interjects to everyone’s surprise.

Iliad then holds  up the hand with the Yellow Stoned Ring on it “This works against Dragon Fire… Right?” he questions.

Hemmingbyrd staring at him merely replies “Hmmph…” and follows Sir Elm.

Iliad trippingly stumbles in behind them.

THE PATH OF THE FORSAKEN

Morr and Agatha are riding Morr’s horse, Agatha holding onto him from the back… While attached to a rope following behind is Agatha’s Horse, with Queen Sorceress Olamna, hands tied and mouth gagged, being thrown all about.

Agatha’s hair is white blond once more.

“Tell me again why you didn’t let My “Darker” Self kill her??” she speaks to Morr while holding tightly onto him.

“She is our bargaining tool to get back your Father…” Morr replies.

“Do you really think The Dark King EterrSomeone of such Pure Evil, can be bargained with?” she questions.

Morr smiles menacingly “Sure”.

INSIDE THE CAVERN OF MOSKK

“It’s dark” speaks Iliad softly.

“Shoosh!” replies Hemmingbyrd.

“Not for long my good friend… Not for long” replies Sir Elm to Iliad.

It’s then that the cavern ahead begins to take on a slight golden glow.

“Moskk’s Treasure…” Jodan’s voice can suddenly be heard from behind them, as he and The Eight Knights of The Dark Fortress of Doom suddenly appear.

“What are you doing here Jodan!!” Hemmingbyrd says in a quiet hiss.

“You mean it’s true what they say about Dragon’s Treasure?” Iliad speaks more to himself than the others.

“Well, we couldn’t let you have all the fun now could we” replies Jodan to Hemmingbyrd.

“Of course it is” Sir Elm leans over and replies to Iliad, whose eyes are suddenly a glow at the idea of seeing a real life Dragon’s Treasure.

“A Dragon’s Treasure is its Pride and Joy… Its Glory” Sir Elm finishes.

Hemmingbyrd then waves his hands about shushing everyone “Shussh!!”.

They all then continue to move forward, Sir Elm leading, with Hemmingbyrd, Iliad and Jodan right behind, and the Knights coming behind them.

Suddenly they come around a corner in the Cavern, and there it is… Moskk’s Glorious Treasure… Piles, upon piles, upon piles of Gleaming, Glimmering Gold.

“Well now, would yah look at that” exclaims Jodan quietly.

Meanwhile all of their eyes, save Sir Elm and Hemmingbyrd who seem quite comfortable with the massive amounts of treasure, are opened as wide as they can possibly be.

Hemmingbyrd leans back so that all may hear “No matter what you do… Don’t touch anything…”.

They all sorta nod in half agreement.

“Not A Thing!!” Hemmingbyrd reiterates with another harsh hiss.

“Now wait here” Hemmingbyrd says as he and Sir Elm step further into the Gold Laced Chamber.

Meanwhile, the previously wounded Dark Fortress of Doom Knight, whose arm is in a sling, and who hadn’t really been paying attention to Hemmingbyrd, begins to drift over to one of the large stacks of gold.

Hemmingbyrd and Sir Elms are nearing the middle of the Chamber, peering left, then right, with no sign of The Black Dragon Moskk.

The wounded Dark Fortress of Doom Knight then starts to slowly, oh so quietly, stick some gold into one of his leather pouches.

Jodan’s Keen Lycanthrope hearing picks up on it immediately, and with a quick look and sneer “NO MAN!! HOLD!” he says as his eyes begin to Glow His Wolf’s Red.

“Oh no” are the last words that are mumbled by Hemmingbyrd before a young man in his twenties, with white blond hair, and dressed majestically in all white clothing, suddenly drops from the air, and tears the Knights throat out.

The White Knight

(Be Sure to Check Out The The Black Knight First)

High atop a Nearby MountainCorandero, The White Knight, watches as Jorando leads The Evil Prince Me-Choey‘s Army towards the North, where they will surely defeat The People of Breenum.

“Jorando… Your Dark Deeds Need Come to an End” he thinks to himself.

“But I can not defeat an Army… No… Not alone”.

He then Mounts his Great Grey Stallion, and makes his way down the other side of the Mountain.

The Black Knight

The Black Knight, on one knee, sat within his old gods cathedral…

His Black Winge-ed Helm sitting on the floor beside him.

His hair was straight out white, his eyes piercing green, staring directly into the gaze of the large statue of his once followed god…

As if trying to stare him down, knocking him right off his great thrown of marble and wood.

“You couldn’t just leave well enough alone… Could you” his  thoughts went out, as if holding conversation directly with Cuez himself.

Suddenly a Most Malicious Prince entered the chamber “All Done Praying??” he spoke disrespectfully to The Black Knight, who picked up his helmet, placed it on his head, and walked right past the Prince with a Harrowing shift of air…

…leaving the Prince Alone in the Gods Chamber

Waiting outside some 10,000 Men In Arms, as The Black Knight steps out into the Cold Morning Light, Mounts his Steed, and Raises his Great Axe “TO VICTORY!!!” he Bellows, and Rides Directly Through The Many Soldiers who Cheer him as he goes.

Chess With Agatha…

And The Dark Fortress of Doom

A Novel by DarkJade

CHAPTER XIV – Queen Sorceress Olamna

THE MOUNTAINS OF KREE

Far to The North upon the Mountains of Kree, The Dark Queen Sorceress Olamna, reluctantly makes her way down the Snowy Mountains upon her Great Grey Steed, Called Melancholy.

Accompanying her on Horseback Are The Eight Black Archers of Norawyn.

THE KINGDOM OF NORAWYN

IN THE NORTH LANDS

The Dark King Eterr sits on his throne, as his two Shadow Wizards circle The Great Green Orb of Da-tok…

“Queen Sorceress Olamna makes her way down the mountain My Lord, she shall intercept Agatha and her Party in two to three days I’d say” speaks one of the two Shadow Wizards, this one marked by an Eye Patch… Otherwise King Eterr could never tell the two apart.

King Eterr does not reply, but rather seems to go deeper in to Pensive Thought… His Blood and Hatred Surely waiting for Olamna to fail.

THE OUTSKIRTS OF YOKADE LABYRINTH

Outside the Entrance of The Yokade Labyrinth, Agatha’s Party mount their horses.

“I shall ride ahead” proclaims Morr who looks at Agatha, nods, she nods in return, and he rides off.

Meanwhile The Blue Wizard Hemingbyrd makes sure that the wounded Dark Fortress of Doom Knight, as well as the newly saved Sir Elm of Tardenwhal, are well secured to their horses, and are ready to ride.

The Great and Strong, and yet still weak, Form of Sir Lem of Tardenwhal rides his Great White Steed over to Agatha…

“I am forever in your debt My Lady” with this he reaches down and pulls her left hand to his lips, and kisses it.

Agatha smiles slightly, but is mostly a bit overwhelmed by all of it.

“YAHH LET US BE OFF!!” bellows Jodan, and so the Eight Dark Fortress of Doom Knights, Jodan and Sir Elm of Tardenwhal ride on in the direction in which Morr had already gone.

Leaving Hemingbyrd and Iliad The Fool back with Agatha.

Hemingbyrd rides up next to her as she gets on her mount.

“You did well Agatha… Your Father would surely be proud” he says with a smile.

“Yes Indeed–” Iliad starts to say as he rides by, but can’t get his horse to stop once more, and so he is gone.

“Silly Fool” speaks Hemingbyrd under his breath as he too rides off.

“Indeed I am proud of you Agatha… But remember, always stay several steps ahead of your opponent…” speaks Agamemnon in her mind.

“Yes Father…” she replies.

“Olamna” Agatha suddenly speaks out loud to herself… “YAH!” she calls out to her Steed, and rides off.

Dark Rider – Champion of Wogtay

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Entertainment, Fantasy, Fiction, Knights, Story with tags , on January 4, 2012 by darkjade68

And so Dark Rider lay there upon the ground, Iloh standing between him and the Mighty Prouhl

“You’d best be on your way Woman Warrior, I have unfinished business with your Dark Rider…” he spoke at Iloh menacingly.

But she stood strong…

“Go back to the Foul Hell in which you were born, Dark One… You’ll take no life today…” she spat at him.

“HAA!!” this seemed to amuse him more than anything else…

“So Be It Wench, I’ll send thee on your way first then” and he raised his great Sword above him…


When suddenly, a Gold Knight struck at Prouhl, knocking his sword to the ground…

“BACK BEAST OF FIRE!!! TODAY BE YOUR LAST!!” it was King Wogtay…

And then another Gold Knight appeared, this one a Woman…


 

 

 

 

“LET ME HAVE AT HIM MY LORD!!” it was the King’s Champion, Wynoah.

And a great Battle Ensued…

Prouhl, of course, had a Second Weapon, a Large Axe on his back…

Wynoah and King Wogtay fought valiantly, and as they did, Iloh saw to The Dark Rider, who was now beginning to wake.

And just as Wynoah thought she had Finished Prouhl…

“DIE VILLAIN!!” she bellowed…

He took one last Fatal Swing, knocking the King’s Champion’s Head Clear off…

“NOOOOO!!!” Dark Rider Howled as he bounded to his feet, took both of his Swords from his back, and hurled them deep into Prouhl’s Chest!!

Killing Him Instantly, and sending him back to the Hell He Had been Brought Forth From!!

Listen To As You Read…

PROLOGUE;

“No One Loves The Fool…”

“No, Indeed Not”

“But I shall Change This…”

“It Is Within My  Power to Change This”

A Young Girl Sits alone in the Dark Morning Light, of an abandoned apartment Full of trash filled boxes… Trash to her… Remnants of a Former Life… Of a Life… No more

Her Hair Long and Golden… Eyes so Blue, it Hurts the Sea

To Herself… She Speaks

“For The Sake of Verse… I shall call him… Agamemnon…”

“And Every Day when the Sun Cracks The Sky… He comes…”

“His Coming is Sharply Marked by the Limp and Slide of his Injured Leg… And the Tap of  his Black Cherry Wood Cane…”

“And When The Door Cracks… “Agatha” he says… “Come”

“And Everyday I walk Beside Him… Never catching his eyes… No… He would not allow… I merely watch his Foot Slide, and his Cane Tap… “Tap…” “Tap…” “Tap…”

And Then the Voices Come… Like Bees In My Head… They Will Not Relent

“You Shall Need a Knight… “TWO KNIGHTS!!” the Voice corrects itself

“You Shall Need a Magician… “TWO!! TWO YOU FOOL!!” it corrects itself again

And then Agamemnon speaks to me… But not with words… Nor Does he Gaze my way

“There is… Another Life Agatha…”

“A Much… Harder Life”

“Tell Me” I say… And he stops just in front of my school…

Turns… And looks at me

His Eyes are Dark… And Deep “There will be no turning back…. You must be sure” he says, but does not speak.

“Please Tell me Elias…” I speak his True Name.

“Very Well… But first you must Play Me A Game…”

One Knight – Formal Invitation

Posted in Fiction, Knights, Novel, Story, Writers, Writing with tags on October 15, 2011 by darkjade68

I just wanted to take this moment to Formally invite my Subscribers, as well as any other Readers and/or Reader/Writer’s who happen upon my site today, to come and check out my One Knight Site (Site Info Link). As I’m not Advertising this Post in the Forums.

On October Sixth, I did Create a Thread Announcing it, but beyond my About The Writer Page, have yet to mention it here at The Written Word. As I prefer to keep the two Sites a separate thing, as they are completely different from one another.

The One Knight site has become a Two Fold thing, first of which is a place for me to work on my Fantasy Novel Concept One Knight (One Knight Story Link). Something I came up with as a child.

Secondly as a home for The Writers of the Realm, which are Guest Writers who have agreed to Write some of their own Original Work, and Post it. This has gone very well, and when I say that, I mean the Writer’s that have partaken have put up some nice Pieces. Four Writers were invited to be Authors, two have posted Pete at Evolution of Insanity, who has created Insanity’s Ascension, a very provocative piece, and Pdk at Simple Observations, who has shared a couple of his Previously Written, though I don’t believe Previously Posted Pieces, The Life of William Conrad Chesterton and Forever.

I have to tell you, both of these Writers Posts are very Heart Felt, and well worth a gander.

Well enough of all that, I will finish by saying I have with my most recent Chapter of One Knight hit the “Edge of the Cliff” so to speak, as anything beyond this point is beyond the original concepts and ideas that I had as a youth, and thus I am in Fresh Unknown Territory. Or as my Favorite Writer would have said, “The Undiscovered Country” (Act III, Scene I Hamlet).

Also, as only two of the Four Writers invited to join the Writers of the Realm were able to partake, there are two openings for participants, and/or if you’d just like to Post a Random Piece, just let me know on this Post, and I’ll get you access to the One Knight Site. The Content of your Piece is completely at your discretion, and doesn’t need to go with the Site’s “Knightly” Theme, lol.

Thanks for your time, and continued patronage of The Written Word, I love Writing, and I love that you have all decided to join me on this Quest of mine, the Journey of Imagination that is Writing.

Something to leave you with…

TRON: LEGACY

Let the Games Begin…
