THE MOUNTAINS OF EDECK

WITHIN A NORTHERN CAVE

“Release Dark Rider Bandit or you shall face a Fate worse than Death…” demands The Grey Ranger Flynn Rider.

 

 

 

 

 

“You do Talk more than your Brother I dare say…” The Scarlet Bandit mocks.

“A Fate worse than Death… Pray Tell” he questions half amused.

 

 

 

“A Fate Worse Than Death Be Me!! AXXAFOR!!” suddenly Axxafor appears off to the left  some 15 feet from The Scarlet Bandit.

“I see… So a Ranger and a Brainless Oaf are going to end my 2 year plot against your Precious Dark Rider, ehh” The Scarlet Bandit spats.

Just then an arrow strikes the Scarlet Bandit’s left shoulder.

FUMPPPHH!!

“ARGHHH!!!” yalps the Scarlet Bandit…

And out of the shadows steps Theliad Rider, and his Wolf Earqui…

“Make that two Rangers…” Theliad spats back, as The Scarlet Bandit recoils, trying to stop the blood from coming out of his arm.

“YOU SHALL PAY!! IF IT’S THE LAST THING I DO… YOU SHALL ALL PAY” and he disappears into a secret passage in the side of the cave wall.

“Theliad…” The Dark Rider is barely able to mumble out…

Theliad runs to Dark Rider’s side, as Axxafor checks for the secret passage, but can find nothing.

“Hello Father…” Theliad says with a half smile.

“No time for Family Reunions, The Scarlet Bandit Thugs will be here soon–” Flynn Rider exclaims but then the sound of death comes from the Entrance of the cave and out of the darkness steps Iloh and Ukorian.

“Hello Dark Rider…” Iloh speaks as she wipes the blood off of her sword.

Dark Rider can hardly believe his eyes “Iloh??”.

Just then Elsya steps into the light as well, and kneels before Dark Rider…

“Elsya… It can not be…” The Dark Rider speaks in disbelief.

“Lets see about these “Magical Chains” shall we…”

She then stands and waves every one back “BACK!!” and speaks some Ancient Elven Words, and Sparks of Yellow and Green Light shatter the chains.

Tales of The Dark Rider – The Captive

Our Tale now takes us Two Years later into The Dark Rider’s Life…

Two years beyond the Defeat of Lord Embul’s Dark Army at the Walls of Wogtay’s Kingdom…

Two years beyond parting from Elsya.

A DARK CAVE WITHIN THE MOUNTAINS OF EDECK

The Dark Rider is chained up and bloodied by some sort of Dark Conjuring…

Have you had enough?” questions the all too familiar voice of The Scarlet Bandit

Because we’ve only just begun…” The Red Bandit quietly proclaimed as he circled his Capture.

So… After Wogtay’s Defense, you, Iloh, Largoth, Elsya, Ukorian and Ems parted ways…” he spoke, knowing full well that, that was indeed the case.

The Dark Rider did not reply.

Largoth returned home to Rodomor I’d imagine…the Red Bandit continued.

Yes…” The Dark Rider finally replied, his voice gravely, and worn.

And what became of Iloh and her companions?” the Red Bandit mockingly questioned.

They Slayed Lord Embul…” Dark Rider replied.

I see… But Ems–” The Scarlet Bandit started, but The Dark Rider interrupted.

Was badly wounded…” Dark Rider spoke.

And is no longer a Merchenary… Tsk, Tsk… Such a shame” the Red Bandit continued to mock.

I believe that is so… Yes” replied Dark Rider.

And Iloh and Ukorian?” the Red Bandit questioned.

They each went their own way… As far as I know… Beyond that, I can not say” The Dark Rider explained.

Well then… Let me fill you in…” spoke the Red Bandit…

Ukorian, soon there after, having aquired the taste for “Heroism”, joined the Ranks of The Brotherhood of Medun… Where he is now very well liked, and established” spoke The Red Bandit.

And Iloh I hear about from time to time… It seems she has become very involved in High Profiled Secretive Missions… Much to do with King Wogtay’s reference I dare say…” with this The Red Bandit grabs Dark Rider by the face.

Oh yes… She does make a pretty penny indeed…” he then discards his face.

But Elsya… Now that is a different story… I must say I haven’t heard hide nor hair about her…” he finishes then turns towards The Dark Rider.

But being a Rendolyn Elf… I can not say I am surprised…” he continues.

He then puts his dagger under Dark Riders throat…

Pehaps you can tell me more…” the Dark Rider does not reply

Ah come on now, the more interesting you make this, the longer you stay alive…” the Red Bandit threatens.

Elsya was to be mated with one of her people… It is not likely that she will be seen again in the Human Lands…” the Dark Rider explains.

The Scarlet Bandit removes his dagger from Dark Rider’s throat “I see… So she’s off making little Elven Babies somewhere, eh…” the Red Bandit turns away and scratches his chin.

I suspect… I do not know for sure…” The Dark Rider continues.

Interesting… Interesting”  the Red Bandit faces him once more “This is good stuff” he continues.

Meanwhile you retired your Blade… Or… Blades I might say” he walks towards Dark Rider once more.

Gave up being a Mercenary… Avoided the Fame and Glory that seemed to be growing around you…” he stops in front of Dark Rider.

Something like that” Dark Rider replies, his head dropping from exhaustion and dehydration.

But lucky me, I just happened to be one of your last “Hurrah’s” before your Retirement…” the Red Bandit spits at him, his anger growing.

How kind of you” he finishes.

The Red Bandit than stabs Dark Rider’s right shoulder with the dagger.

Arghh!!” The Dark Rider exclaims.

He then pulls The Dark Rider’s left ear right to his mouth “Do you realize how hard it has been to rebuild my Fortunes… Regain my Respect…” with this he twists the dagger in The Dark Rider’s Arm.

For this you shall pay Dark Rider… You… And your Friends” with this he tears the dagger out of The Dark Rider’s Arm, and leaves.

The Dark Rider’s Deep Blue Eyes following after.

“You shall regret the day you entered our Wood, human…” the Drow spat at Ukorian.

“Your people are nothing more than a Pack of Thieves… Drow” Ukorian replied, and so the fighting continued… “CLANG! CLANG!”

Until…

“Stop you fools, or you shall alone start a War that neither of you will live to see” a voice came from above the Drow and Ukorian, and a great wind… As if something had flown over them.

To Ukorian’s surprise, it was Elsya… She had returned. But she was not alone…

Sweeping down upon a Dragon, she landed near the two of them.

“The two of you are acting above your position, which is basically none existent…”

“For who are you to stir such a thing between two Humanoid Nations…”

The two of them looked at one another at a loss, as they thought of it more as a common Bar Brawl, then a National Crisis.

“I have seen enough…” the Drow spoke, then ran off.

“So you’re a Dragon Rider…” spoke Ukorian.

Elsya mounted once more “Only when I need to be…” she lifted again into the sky, and disappeared.

Meanwhile the guide had lead Iloh and the Dark Rider back to camp, where Elms snored away, and Largoth greeted him most warmly. “You’ve returned…” Largoth exclaimed.

“Aye… that we have” Dark Rider replied.

“Where are Ukorian and Elsya?”

“I am here…” Ukorian replied as he stepped into the firelight.

“I see…” Dark Rider replied. “And Elsya?”

“Here Dark Rider…” Elsya too stepped into the firelight.

“With this Iloh smiled deviasly…” The two of you have been up to no good… I can smell it”. Ukorian looked at Elsya, then Iloh. “Meh…” and geared his horse.

Suddenly a Nobly dressed Drow appeared.

“I bring word from the High Priestess Androna…” with this the Drow holds out a Scroll.

Largoth takes it, and reads it. “It’s the location of the Scarlet Bandit?” Largoth looks at Dark Rider, then Iloh.

Iloh stepped forward “But the High Mistress–“she is then interrupted.

“It appears as though one of our kind attacked one of your party…” with this the Drow looks at Ukorian, and Ukorian back at him with a grimace “Meh”.

“…and as an act of… “Continued Peace” lets call it…”

“I get it…” the Dark Rider interjected. “Thank Androna for us” with this he mounts, as do all the others.

“Lets move out… As he will not be in the same spot for very long…” and so they do.

Dark Rider – Scarlet Bandit

The next morning the Dark Rider and Largoth were approached by Iloh, her disgruntled Warrior friend and a Dwarven Warrior. “Dark Rider…” she spoke, as the Dark Rider and Largoth prepared their horses. “We  have a proposition for you…”. Largoth replied “What is it?” the Dark Rider continued to ready their horses. “We’ve been hired by the Mayor of Trone to capture a man known as The Scarlet Bandit… Perhaps you’ve heard of him…”. Largoth looks at Dark Rider, then back at Iloh. “The Scarlet Bandit has many Allies… And he is not an easy man to locate”. “No… He is not… Which is why we’d like you and the Dark Rider to join us, we are but three, and I fear it will not be enough”. “So that would make five of us, I still don’t–” Largoth was suddenly interrupted by an approaching Elven Girl. “Six… I will accompany you as well…” Dark Rider turned and was stunned by the Elven Girl’s beauty. “You? You were the one in the Fallen Wood… The one that warned us of the Man Golem…” “I am Elsya, of the Rendolyn Elves. I’ve been sent to aid you, should you require… Aid”. “Great… Another Elf…” spoke the

Dwarven Warrior. “My day couldn’t get much worse… Lets be on our way before the “Faerie’s” decide to join us…” With this he mounted his steed.

Largoth shrugged, and mounted his horse. Iloh did not appear pleased, but mounted her horse “Yah!!” she road off.

Within the day the six travelers reached Ordaon Valley, and were making good time.

Iloh and her Human Warrior friend, Ukorian as he was called, road in front. Largoth and Dark Rider in the middle, the Dwarven Warrior Ems brought up the rear. Elsya road off to the right of the party, seemingly on her own.

“I did not ask about the reward for this task, but then again, it must be unimaginable…” spoke Largoth. The Dark Rider looked over at Elsya, who met his gaze. “Tell me about this… Scarlet Bandit” he spoke to Largoth.
