Calis:
Still feeling out of place the minstrel finally spoke up again, "South it is then? Aye? Unless we decide to journey to Faerie but that might not be a good idea..."


I know not what thou hast discussed regarding Faerie.  Pray, tell, know thou of a dragon in such parts?

Re: Dragons
Kymberly. I believe you mentioned that you think some of your learned companions here in the mountains may have some knowledge? If south is where we needs go, then south it is.

"Unless it's the full moon and a druid circle is nearby or we find the other entrances to Faerie that are in this tower, it's best to head south...."

Re: Dragons
Then it is settled.  Let us depart without delay!  With that said, the knight turns on his heels and moves to depart.  Before mounting his horse, he draws his sword, places the point on the ground and kneels.  He prays silently, kisses its hilt, and returns it to its scabbard.  He then mounts and waits for the others before departing

Re: Dragons
In the sunlight of the morning the group made its preperations to leave.  The knight seemed to believe that a dragon of some kind could be found in the south.  It was fortunate that he had come along, given Fillian's untimely demise and the need for the ingredient to Norway's salvation hung in the balance.   Kimbery supplied that she knew that some of her order lived south of Fillian's tower and there was a chance that one of them could be found to help with information.

   Divvying up the findings of the tower before closing the door securely, the group rode south, their yeoman taking the lead as was his role...

Re: Dragons
Fr. Rys secures various scrolls and books to his mount and begins to walk beside Equus, as he doesn't want to greatly overburden him.  A hawk then comes to rest on the pommel.

Ah, Buteo, good to see you again. Did you find any mice?

  The hawk chirped and screeched in response, fluffing its wings being settling on its perch, it's head bobbing and turning to examine it's surroundings, the sharp talons of it's feet gripping the wooden pommel.

  The first part of the valley floor is merely long grases and fragrant and colourful wild flowers.  Bees and dragonflies buzz about their business while meadow larks' cries can be heard as the group approaches and they issue their warnings.

OODM:  Everyone does have a horse, just to remind you all :)

Sir Vailario, what is the best strategy when dealing with dragons?

Sir Vailario, what is the best strategy when dealing with dragons?


That is, indeed, a question, Father. They are all different as people are different, although sharing some common traits.  Began Vailario.  He speach began to grow in passion and zealous fervor, Deceit and trickery are the ways of some such creatures.  Blatent violence the way of others.  Believe not the lies of the Evil One spoken in dragon form!  Their voice can charm the unwary!  But guile is not the last of their arsenal.  Thou hast surely heard of their breath?  A wind of death, often in the form of fire, spews forth from their mouths as the mouth of hell itself!  Claws like spears!  Teeth like rows of swords! (OCC:  nasty sharp pointy teeth!) And a tail that slaps with the force of a battering ram made of stout oak and wielded by giants.  I've found little value in talking with such creatures.  Match violence with valor!  Match guile with the Truth of the Lord! Bellowed Sir Vailario.  Then pausing, he continued.

But, it is more than speech making I would offer Thee, Father.  I would say this.  It is best that those best at fighting, move to close on the beast.  My armor will grant me great protection and the Lord is my shield.  My sword arm, the vengence of the Lord.  Our Yeoman would do best to keep his distance and pelt the beast with arrows, while those with other skills aid us in our battle.  Again, it all depends on the beast we find.  They are all different.  Doth he hide in rocky terrain?  Doth he hide in swamp?  All these are to be considered.  We shall see, Father, we shall see.  But, with the Blessing of the Lord, we shall be victorious.

Re: Dragons
After taking one of the daggers, Calis followed the others. He listened to the take of the new knight while wondering how his friend is doing now that he was called back. Shaking off his thoughts he concentrated on the words that were being spoken.

I find this troubling as well. Yes, Lucifer was the Dragon cast out of Heaven. Yet I can't believe that all such creatures are evil. Surely there are those who uphold the tenets of honour.

Re: Dragons
OCC:  I'm a bit concerned that people are taking this a little too seriously.  This guy, as I see him, is a dragon slayer.  I rememeber the story of St. George and his battles against the dragon (metaphore for satan).  Swim, feel free to reign me it, but I cant see a guy who bills himself as a "dragon slayer" to ask too many questions of the beasts.  "Scuse me?  Are you a nice dragon or an evil dragon?"  So, please dont take my comments as personally offensive or even as my opinion about church Tradition, but I see this guy as a religious crusader.  His crusade is against dragons and evil, IMHO.

BIC:  Hearing the rise of protests from his fellows, Val shakes his head.  How many dragons hast thou known good priest?  I shall let you judge, then, when we find it.

The knight, now apparently "finished" with this conversation, his opion made obvious by the sudden hard look on his face, nudges his horse with his spurs.  Let us be off, then?

Re: Dragons
As the discussion continues, the riders move south, leaving the valley of flowers and tall grasses and riding back into the ferns, shrubs, chesnut and oak trees that surrounded it.  Colm lead the way, his years of experience in the hills of Eire and forests of Britain had sharpened his skills.
   He found a deer path that made the movements of the horses easier.  Kimberly walked beside him, her lifetime in the forests made her movements as graceful and easy as the deer that had created it.  Behind them followed the priest, the knight, the hermit, and the singing minstrel.  Calis' dolcett tones keeping them in good spirits as he filled the air with tales, jokes, and songs...

   Morning became mid-day, and mid-day the afternoon, the air became warmer, but the canopy of trees helped blunt the worst of the sun's heat.  As the group's travelled them up and over and down and then up and down a second mountain, cries of distress could be detected...

OCC:  Assuming he knows the direction fo the cries.

BIC:  As soon as he could discern the direction of the call, the knight was off as fast as his horse would carry him.  he prayed quietly as he rode Lord have Mercy on me and grant me victory if achieved by word or deed, to Your Glory

I have never met a dragon. However, I can't believe that there is a creature race that is wholely evil...every member of said race in league with the Devil. The Good Lord preaches redemption, and every sentient should be give the chance.

Softly, almost to himself, Inpetuous knight! So every one can hear, I fear our new companion may be in need of our help!. With that, Fr. Rys mounts Equus as best as he is able and rides off after Sir Vailario.

The knight raises as eyebrow at this and smiles.  Blessing himself he continues May the Lord teach me of His Mercy in Truth!  I truely hope Thou art right, good Priest.  I pray the Lord Have Mercy on me for my lack of faith, for I am the greatest among sinners. he says earnestly.

He then continues We shall learn together.  Perhaps the Lord shall teach me of His Mercy.  Perhaps he will teach you of the ways of the Devil.  Let us hope, he does not wish to teach us of humilty in defeat.he says with a frown.

Surely you are to hard on yourself Sir Knight. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. It is through His redeeming grace that we and blessed.
