[IC] Chapter 2.1 - Ordanestyu
Ordanestyu steps, with light feet, outside the temple for a final relief before the ritual. The sun can be noticed to being really dim and small even. It is not just because of the clouds but it is really dark. This darkness strengthens the visibility and magnitude of the Red Moon. Yelm is going to lose two sons today.

Ordanestyu finishes and takes a good look at his new emperor, The Red Moon. The sack that is pulled all over him comes as a total surprise. It is quickly tied up around his legs, arms and mouth. There must be at least three attackers working on him.

Caught totally by surprise  Ordanyestyu does nothing at first. After the initial shock, his next thought was that this was part of the ritual, so he waited to see what might happen. If it was in fact a kidnapping, there was little he could do at the moment.

At least they let me finish my piss...Could have been rather embarrassing otherwise, he thinks

You are hauled quickly away from the temple. "Well this was easy snap", you hear them say. They drag you to a some kind of a wagon and start transferring you somewhere in Serris.

The warrior, begins to suspect that this indeed was a kidnapping, another embarrassment to add to his recent defeat...

Straining against his bonds he spends the next while trying to get his bearings, recognise his abductors and possibly free himself.

In reply to Ordanestyu (msg # 5):

Having patrolled the city for years Ordanestyu begins to pay attention to the sounds and smells of the streets. He recognises the change of ground when the cart moves from district to district, the paved roads giving way to packed earth and gravel. Sounds change too and it's not long before they're entering the Old city with it's hustle and bustle that's missing in the better off areas.

Ahh Executioners square if I'm not mistaken.

As the "passenger" is calm and the streets busy the wagon takes its time to reach the final destination. Apparently, they have somehow disguised the intention of the wagon as passer-bys don't act on it.  After the executioner's square, it enters the Old City and heads north. The Market area can clearly be heard but the route extends from there. All the time the hijackers are quiet or whispering vaguely.

Finally, you arrive at the destination after a trip that feels like taking ages. You have a good idea of the approximate location you now are in the north. They unload you from the wagon and walk you somewhere inside. You go down a couple of stairways. The smell of pleasurable herbs is getting stronger. You feel a strong vibe of your soon to be former gods.

The sack still over your head someone greets you. "Welcome, my lord and apologies for the unconventional measures. Your situation requires haste actions and this was the final hour to save you from the impending doom."

You are freed completely from the sack finding yourself in a small temple that is heavily decorated with Solar pantheon regalia, bright yellow color, and runes. The man who just addressed you stands before you with a long braided beard and some kind of a priestly like suit that clearly belongs to a yelmic tradition but is still uncommon in day to day worship ceremonies. The actual hijackers are behind you wearing their awfully familiar black cloaks.

After seeing you the only words he can stammer out are: "Who.. the hell.. are you?"

Ordanestyu finds himself bowing, despite himself, for it was still a Solar Priest who stood before him

"A follower of Polaris, an officer of the city and a member of the The Five Trees of Bounty Association, that's who. It seems that you were expecting someone else. I'd say you are in a whole load of trouble... Tell me, how do you think you can avoid the certain divinations that would be performed if you had got your real quarry and what makes you think that they won't be performed to find me?"

Turning ever so slightly the warrior takes in the black cloaked men behind, and from then on keeps them in his field of vision.

"You fools! The deal was to get me Yanis", the priest yells to your kidnappers. "Now I have to deal with this another converted... converted..", he now looks you more interest in his eyes. You see the black cloaks shoving and blaming each other.

"I can save you too, lord. The red cancer that is spreading in our city is the pathway to doom. It is replacing the old customs and destroying the city. I can feel that you haven't tainted yourself yet. Let me purify you of the Chaos that has already touched you", the priest preaches seemingly hoping to save yet another lost soul.

"I think they can live side by side quite nicely" answers the warrior calmly.

"That is Lunar talk!" he shouts startled. "This man has lost it already. Yet another son of Yelm has gone mad from the Moon. When does it end?" The thugs behind you are not sure if they should answer the rhetorical question presented.

The priest addresses the black cloaks.
"Take him away from here and get me Yanis. He can still be saved. Use whatever bands you have to get him here. Time is of the essence. Do not screw this up!"

The henchmen ask what should they do with Ordanestyu. "He is lost soul anyway. You can sell him to Pentans for what I care" the priest instructs unconcernedly.

"Let you go? And run straight to Yanis and Vania to warn them. You would be safe if these fools would've picked the correct person. And you wouldn't go with the path you chose, of course."

He turns away and heads to the chambers.

"Now, take him away and bring me Yanis."

The black cloaks now clearly remembering you mutter to themselves: "Luckily his missing that bloody squirrel...". They start to approach you with the intent of tying you up for transfer.

At the black cloaks' approach Ordanestyu flings both hands at the two men, summoning the power of his god to blind them with his magical starlight...

"You really think you can do that here, now?" the priest points out laughing from the dark corner where he still stayed observing the situation. As you wonder what happened to your hands they are caught with a force and quickly bound together by the henchman behind you.

"Okay soldier, let's go", they say as they lift you up and start to walk you away.

Odanestyu accepts his fate stoically, trusting in his friends finding him.
