Dark Rider – Certain Death

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Story, Writing with tags , , on October 20, 2011 by darkjade68

The next day Dark Rider and his party woke up to the strangest thing…

“Ornast come for payment… Ornast want it now” or rather the largest Orc, any of them had ever seen.

“Uhh…” Ems drew forth his axe, and nudged Ukorian, apparently both of them had fallen asleep on guard. Ukorian jumped up and drew his sword.

“What the??!” spoke Ukorian. There Ornast, a giant Orc, sat on a rock in front of them like he’d been waiting for a while for one of the party to awake. By now Iloh, Dark Rider, Largoth and Elsya had woken as well.

Dark Rider stepped forward “How may we be of service Orc…” with this Ornast stretched, and rose. “We capture Drow that follow you… Ornast come for payment”

With this Largoth stepped forward “We were being followed by a Drow?”

Ornast scratched his head “Ornast thought he already say that… You make Ornast’s head hurt, want gold now, or will let her go”. With this Iloh stepped forward and handed the Orc a small bag of silver. “There you go…”.

Ornast looked inside “Thank you woman… We hold Drow for three days, then let her go…”. Ornast started to walk away, and then turned back “Or we eat her…” with this he smiled, bearing his large, sharp yellow teeth. And then he was gone.

“The Drow of Nowynhall are tracking us…” spoke Ukorian. “So it would seem…” replied Dark Rider. “Lets move out…” spoke the Dark Rider, and so they all mounted and headed on.

Soon they reached the Shenn Village of Mond… It seemed quiet enough… Perhaps too quiet… “Ems, Ukorian… Check the perimeter of the Village…” ordered Dark Rider, and so they did. “Iloh, Largoth, watch the streets, Elsya and I will head into the Tavern…” Iloh and Largoth nodded and looked for spots to watch the streets. As Elsya and the Dark Rider headed into the Tavern, the Villagers scuttled along, and looked very nervous. But before Dark Rider and Elsya could enter the Tavern a voice came from behind them.

“You really wont be needing to go in there…” it was him. The Scarlet Bandit.

“So you are the famous Dark Rider I’ve been hearing about… Interesting…” spoke the Bandit. Dark Rider moved into an attacking position and drew his swords, as did Iloh who had now approached.

“And you are the ever illusive Scarlet Bandit…” Iloh spoke antagonistically towards the Scarlet Bandit.

“Well, well, the Ranger Iloh too… Oh I am honored… Who would have thought little ol me would draw so many Noble Opponents”.

Ems, Ukorian and Largoth now approached, as the Village Streets started to clear.

“Lets finish this…” Ukorian spoke, his hood drawn, and sword ready.

“Not so quickly…” suddenly a voice came from behind Dark Rider.

“A Drow Ranger…” Elsya said in a surprised tone.

With this Iloh turned and faced the Drow Ranger.

“But, the Priestess Androna–” spoke Iloh, but she was interrupted by Largoth “Wanted us killed far away from Nowynhall…” spoke Largoth.

Just then another Drow appeared behind Ukorian and Ems.

“An Assassin” Dark Rider spoke when he saw the second Drow approach. Ukorian and Ems turned to face him.

“You see” spoke the Scarlet Bandit “There’s no point in you going in the Tavern… When a most certain death awaits you out here…”.


Three more Drow appeared.

Dark Rider – Ambush At Fallen Wood

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Story, Writing with tags , , , on September 26, 2011 by darkjade68

As the Dark Rider, Largoth and Corwick’s Daughter Dylia made there way into The Fallen Wood… All was cast with an uneasy quiet.

Even the White Owl flew Above the Wood itself. No good would be found here, and the sooner they got through it the better. Though The Dark Rider himself did not seem overly concerned, Largoth and Dylia seemed exceedingly alert.

“This place makes me uneasy…” spoke Largoth. Hearing this did not please Dylia. “Perhaps it’s time I armed myself” she spoke, stopped, and started to put on some Warrior Gear.

“How’s this…” Largoth looked at her and nodded. The Dark Rider was not as easily impressed. “Eh…” he replied. Dylia smiled “You don’t like a Woman that can defend herself, eh… Might put you out of the Hero Business”.  The Dark Rider did not dignify this with a reply.

As the Nighttime Fell Upon them, the Forest seemed to swallow them up. It was at this point that they came across the Elven Village of Nah. “We’d best move on, The Elves of Nah will not appreciate us being here” spoke Largoth. “Hmmph…” the Dark Rider replied. And so they kept moving. Near the midnight hour, they decided to stop and make camp, being they weren’t likely to make it out of Fallen Wood before morning, it was probably best that they traveled by day. Though it wasn’t much Lighter during the day. “I’ll take First Watch” Largoth spoke. “No, we’ll do only one watch, and then move on… I’ll take the watch, you get some sleep… Both of you”, and so Largoth and Dylia went to sleep as best they could.

It wasn’t until late into the Night that “whack!” a rock hit the Dark Rider on his shoulder from above and behind him. He was surprised to see an Elven Woman up in the trees.

Apparently she had tossed the stone at him to get his attention, as she motioned with her Bow off in the distance, indicating he should make his way over there… And quickly.

He did not hesitate. By now a solid Snow had Covered the ground.

As he made his way through the thicket of wood beyond, the Attack Came.

“TIME TO DIE LITTLE MAN!!” it was the Man Golem. The Dark Rider was quick to draw his swords. SWOOSHH!! the Golem Swung his Giant Axe. But the Dark Rider was much too Agile. “Back for another round, eh” the Dark Rider spat. “YOU WILL GIVE ME THE GIRL, THEN MAYBE OGO LET YOU LIVE!!” SWISHHH!! the Golem swung at him again. Suddenly several Arrows Struck the Golem, as the Elven Girl in the trees aided the Dark Rider. He looked up and nodded at her when– THUNKK!! the Golem shoulder first knocked him against a tree. “Ouch… Ok, that hurt” as he slumped to the ground. VOOMP VOOMP VOOMP!!! several more Arrows strike the Golem, and suddenly Lagroth and Dyria were there and stabing at him. “ARRGGHH!!” it howls as it attempts to gimp away, but the Dark Rider would have none of it, as he tossed both of his Blades into it’s back, and it fell dead. SCREECH!!! the Dark Rider looked back behind to the trees where the Elf had vanished, and the White Owl Toar away.
