At last Dark Rider and his party reached the Shores of Evalon, and the very modernized Village of Trone. Once they had slain the Man Golem Ogo, the rest of the journey was a bit more at ease. Though they were quite looking forward to dropping off Dylia.

“You shall be missed Dylia…” Largoth kisses her hand. Ok, maybe just the Dark Rider was looking forward to unloading her. They brought Dylia to her father Corwick, and made their way to the local Tavern “Evalon’s End” as it was called. “I shall get us some Ale…” spoke Largoth, as the Dark Rider sat back and eyed the place. Many Merchants were here, negotiating deals, or telling Tall Tales of Adventure. The Dark Rider laughed to himself, as he heard them unreal lies of great adventure, when in truth most of them had never left the Village. There was one Merchant in particular that caught the Dark Riders ear view.

“When I spent my days in Daven Por, I was renowned as the Great Wolf Slayer…” several laugh at this “What!! You do not believe me, I was there I tell you… And I was Great!” he bared a great teethy smile.

And that’s when she appeared.

“To them, life beyond this border is simply an Adventure… Silly Merchants”. The Dark Rider heard these words from behind him, and turned to see a striking Warrior. “Perhaps” he replied. “I am Iloh…” just then Largoth arrives with two large tankards of ale. “Should I get a third…” he spoke as he takes note of the Warrior.

“Come Iloh… We are leaving” spoke a Warrior Male who stood some twenty feet away from the Dark Riders table. With this, she nods at the Dark Rider, and bows slightly to Largoth. “Perhaps another time” she heads towards the Tavern exit, and the Man Warrior gives a sneering glance at the Dark Rider. The Dark Rider smiles at him, and curtsies with his upper body, and a slight bow from his seat. The Warrior grimaces, turns and leaves. “Making friends eh” Largoth speaks as he sits, and takes a drink of his ale. “Lets hope so” the Dark Rider replies. The White Owl sits on the window cell outside the Tavern, looking in. Watching.

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…
