Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Love, Story, Writing with tags , , on September 21, 2011 by darkjade68

The Morning couldn’t have come soon enough… Mira was there, that meant there was more competition for Work than Largoth had forseen.

“I have lead you wrongly Dark Rider… The Work appears to be little, and the Mercenaries Plentiful…” The Dark Rider put his hand on Largoth’s shoulder “You Worry too much old friend”. Just then an Elven

Priest appeared. “You are the one they call Dark Rider?” Dark Rider looked first at Largoth, and then the Priest. “Yes?”

“I have need of your services… And your friend if you wish” “I wish…” Dark Rider replied. “You see this woman…”

“Uh… Yeah… I see her” the girl smiled at Dark Rider and Largoth. “She needs reach the Shores of Evalon as the third morning passes… It is Corwick’s Wish”.

“Corwick eh…” “The Girl’s Father” the Priest replied. “Alright… That wont be a problem” Dark Rider replied. “How much?” Largoth stepped forward. The Priest smirked, and handed Largoth a bag of gold “That should suffice…” Largoth looked to the Dark Rider, then back to the Priest. “Indeed… But why so lofty a sum?” The Dark Rider smacked Largroth on the arm “Let the man pay what he like…”. The Priest smirked again “Because of him…” the Priest pointed behind the Dark Rider where a huge Man Golem stood.

“GIVE ME THE GIRL HUMAN!!” the Golem demanded. “Right… Largoth get my Horse… And Grab one for yourself” spoke the Dark Rider… “I’ll deal with this” Largoth grabbed the girl, and took her with him to the stables. The Great Man Golem’s Eyes followed after. “Thank You Dark Rider, and Farewell…” the Priest spoke as he ran and disappeared into a nearby alleyway. “Grrr” Grunted the Man Golem.

“I can see you’re not much of a conversationalist…” the Dark Rider spoke to his Opponent. The Man Golem moved at the Dark Rider, but he was much too swift. As he avoided the blow, he drew forth his two swords and hit there sides against the Golems back throwing him off balance. The Man Golem made one more attempt at him, but was out maneuvered once more. “OTO SMASH LITTLE MAN!!” “Hmm… Being Six Foot Three, I can safely say I’ve never been called a “Little Man”” Suddenly Largroth appeared riding a tan horse, the girl was on Tribune. “RARRRGG!!” The Man Golem spewed as he charged once more, but the Dark Rider tripped the Golem, and used it’s back to mount Tribune. “Yah!!” he yelled, and the two horses fled. Atop a near by building The White Owl watched all, and quickly followed.

Dark Rider – Dragon’s Claw Tavern

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

It wasn’t too long before Largoth and the Dark Rider reached the Outskirts of Bas’adia, and the Acclaimed Dragon’s Claw Tavern…

In All it’s Warm Fire, Hot Food and Large Ale Glory. “I shall venture inside, get us a room, and check out the Local Clientele as it were…” spoke Largoth. “Aye…” the Dark Rider replied. “And I shall board Tribune and find the Blacksmith”. The two parted.

All seemed as it should be… The Dragon Claw was packed with the typical Weary Road Wanders. Largoth smiled slightly. They would fit right in. After a bit, the Dark Rider would arrive, Cloaked, and Newly Armed.

“How’s it looking…” he spoke to Largoth who had begun to look a bit tired, potentially Ale Induced. “All is well… We will find work… If not tonight, then in the morrow…”

Just then an Elven Mercenary Started to bellow at a drunken fool at the bar. “KEEP YOUR HANDS NOT ABOUT ME HUMAN, OR YOU WILL FIND YOUR PITIFUL LIFE AT A QUICK END BY THE HANDS OF MIRA!!  “Uh oh…” The Largoth spoke under his breath. And quickly the soothing comfort of the Inn became a Glass Shattering, Sword Handle Thumping, Blood Brew Tainted Roaring Brawl…

Twas to be expected…

Dark Rider – Return To Bas’adia

Posted in Blog Series, Dark Rider, Fantasy, Fiction, Love, Story, Writing with tags , , on September 19, 2011 by darkjade68

…after a Long Walk Down the side of the Mountain, the White Owl following close behind,

The Dark Rider would not return to his his Village… And he would not retrieve his Ebon Blade.

The Rendolyn Elf had given him back his life, and so the life he knew before was no more. He would seek out a Purpose, A Cause, a Meaning to his existence. In other words, he had absolutely no idea what he was going to do, nor where his Life Path would Lead him.

“You look tired… Old friend” A familiar voice came to him. It was Largoth, the Elven Thalon Mercenary he had befriended in Rodomor. “You are a site for soar eyes my friend…” The Dark Rider was quick to greet him warmly Arm and Arm. Largoth looked about, “But where is your Steed Tribune… Tell me you did not lose him in some foul bet at Cards…” “Ha, no my friend… I sent him on his way, I suspect he shall never return”. Just then a Naying could be heard from behind Largoth.

“I think perhaps you are wrong my friend…”

Tribune had returned. “I am heading to Bas’adia if you’re interested… See what kind of Work I can drum up for the Winter…” Largoth spoke. The Dark Rider scratched his chin and “Sounds like a Plan… Is there a good Weapon smith there, I’m in need of a New Weapon”. “Indeed there is…” he replied. The two of them head East, and Largoth quickly takes note of the White Owl that appears to be following them. “A friend of yours?” he asked the Dark Rider. “Ha, lets just say, they’ve helped me into this New Life, and for that, I shall not abandon them”.

Dark Rider

The Dark Rider left his Village early that morning, as not to disturb anyone. Strangely he left his Ebon Blade behind, something he’d never do.

Into the Nordok Peaks he would head, and with any luck, avoid the forth coming Snow Storm all together. But he would not be that lucky, as in the 5th hour of his travels, the storm would strike.

The Rider trudged on, grasping at the Silver Chain about his neck as if to harness some power from it to push him on. By Midnight the Storm had passed, but left the Nordok Peaks covered in Frost.

His Black Steed tired, but the Rider patted him on the side of his neck and spoke “Soon Tribune… Soon”. Soon the Rider entered a valley of Snow and Rock, and winded his way up, his Horse slipping from time to time on the loose, and Frost Covered stones.

Finally he seemed to reach his destination, at a high peak over looking the snow covered valley. At this point he dismounted, and slapped his Horse on it’s rear sending it on it’s way. “Yah!!”

The Rider than removed his Dark Helm, and sat it on a nearby rock. His hair was dark brown, his eyes glistened of true blue. From underneath his cloak he pulled forth a silver box, and opened it with gentle hands. Inside it, a stunning dagger.

A gift from the Rendolyn Elves, for he was their friend. He then removed the Silver Necklace from around his neck, which had a Black Stone Rock shaped in the form of a Heart on the end of it. Tears came to his eyes as he drew forth the dagger in one hand, and the Silver Chain in the other. “If not in this life… Perhaps in the next my love.” With this all seemed to slow down, as his left hand tossed the chain over the side of the Mountain, his right brought the Dagger towards his chest… But then

Suddenly a White Owl swooped up over him, the necklace wrapped tightly around it’s claws! And at that very moment, an Arrow struck his hand holding the Dagger, causing it to fall to the Icy Ground, as the Arrow and his hand strike a large rock beside him. The Arrow pierces the Rock, securing the Rider’s Hand to it. “Ahhhh!!!” He yelled, as the Owl Screetched “Screetch!!!!”.

Suddenly a White Clad Elf appears, a great cat by her side.

“Tsk Tsk..” She spoke slyly as she held open her hand. Suddenly the White Owl flew over and dropped the Silver Chain into it. The Dark Rider attempts to pull the Arrow from the Rock, but the Elf approaches and does it for him. She then tosses him a thick rag to wrap his hand. “You know what your problem is… Human women” she spoke as she walked away. He glares up at her his Bright Blue Eyes unable to ascertain where she came from. She then looks back at him, and then at the Necklace. She tosses it over the side of the mountain. “She’s not worth it… Try to find yourself a nice Elven Girl next time… And try to take better care of that Knife, we Rendolyn Elves take our Gifts very seriously. And are friends too”. With this she was gone. The Rider’s hand wrapped, he stood,  walked over and picked up the Dagger. “Do you have a name!?!?”

All he could hear were two words yelled back in the distance. “I’m Taken!”
