Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
I began to blink my eyes a bit to regain focus. I look carefully again at the necklace as I stare at the small glow I ask the thief, "where did your mother get such a fine necklace like this my dear?" but before she could answer I look up to the knight and toss the necklace to him, "I believe this is worth your troubles."

I catch the necklace and shove it in a pouch. "Then it shall suffice. Now leave here woman" I then look to the elf and grab a gold from my pouch " For your trouble freind." I toss him the gold.

Eladrasa seems to breath a sigh of release when she is released and quickly makes her way to the door. She looks back only slightly to grin before exiting the establishment into the cold night air.

I catch the Gold from the Knight and smirked. "Do you mind I join you?" I asked the Knight. "I believe there may be more to that Necklace."

"I need more liquor on a night like this."  I call the barmaid over and order the strongest cheap liquor they have. "We don't get paid enough for the booze we need to put up with this job."

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
Crash watched as the situation deescalated and breathed a sigh of relief. "I am glad they were able to solve that."

He took a swig of the ale that had been brought fresh on Lunas request, and then rubbed his hand across the bald top of his head "I'm a lover not a fighter after all"

He chuckled at his comment but then looked to Luna seriously "Ya know, we should strike out on our own. With both of ours penchant for entertainment there should be no reason we couldn't make a good business of it. You saw how the patrons reacted to our show earlier. And, well hell, we'd definitely make a lot more without Talvin breathing down our necks" he scoffed the word Talvin to show his disdain for him, "So, what do you say? Up for a little adventure?"

"I play a mean fire flute. We could pull it off. I wonder if this place has anyone booked for tomorrow night." I approach the bar and ask to talk to the owner.

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
stands there in silence as the exchange of the necklace is happening. when the thief decides to leave after the bribery happen anoroc thinks to himself "if she has a family and there in need why not sell the necklace and avoid the trouble and the chance of leaving her family to fend for themselves" anoroc turns to the two and as they talk of the necklace he says to the person in Shiney amor. "that seems like a very valuable jewel dont you think? For someone to have that in there possession one may consider if such item was truely theirs to give away, if she was stealing from you whats to say she didnt stole that from someone else. anoroc extends his arm and asks for 3 drinks Of spirits from the tavern girl. bring us a drink to so we can wet our minds

"I saw a quickly Flash of a large sleeping blue dragon, and around the dragon stands a gathered group of Dragonborn and Kobolds all worshipping her." I said while I lean back into my chair to receive the ale I order from the barmaid.

"What makes you say it was in this lands? Did you see any particular location that made you think it was here? Anoroc pauses for a moment " Did you see anything that could determine the location of your vision?

I wipe my lips after taking a big gulp of my ale and look towards D'loc, "No, I do not recall any land marks in the vision I received form that rather queer necklace."

"Are there any tales or legends of this dragon or the shrine" as I say this I look around to all that have gathered.

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
Zhan stands behind the counter of the bar cleaning a cup with a rag when he hears Luna's voice on the other side of the bar. He puts the cup down and leans over the bar to get a good look at her.

"Ahh, the flute player" he listens to Luna's query and shakes his head slowly from side to side, "No, nothing yet. We don't normally have live entertainment here, we usually leave that to the Sword and Sash. However your company master was quite, insistent that this play be held here instead of there. A decent amount of coin was exchanged for the use of my space. I like to run a quiet establishment without too much attention you see." fearing that he might have given off the wrong impression he follows that up quickly with "Not that we have anything to hide, just that my normal patrons enjoy quiet after a long day in the fields; or on the roads is all"

He stands up and begins stroking his sideburns in contemplation on whether live entertainment would in fact be welcome or not then leans back over after a few moments, "The patrons seemed to enjoy your show, and it's not as big a production as Talvin's troupe so I don't mind. But know I don't pay for this kind of service, I am just allowing the use of the space, understand?"

Zhan smiled to show that despite his words holding their firmness he was indeed still saying them in a friendly manner.

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
Sevain's question empties into an eerie silence as glances are exchanged. Their are plenty of tales of Dragons out of Cormanthor, specifically Myth Drannor that everyone has heard, but not one of any particular dragon that would be of interest in this area. Then again the group gathered mostly hails from areas outside the cities, outside the areas of common lore, or outside the dales themselves.

A new round of drinks is brought, as well as any food that was requested, and coin is exchanged in response. The noise of the room has begun to die down as the night has progressed and those who were boisterous under the effects of alcohol have drunken themselves into silence, fallen asleep, or left the establishment altogether.

The door to the tavern swings open loudly and bangs its solid wooden frame against the stone wall of the establishment. In the doorway a large man stands, shadowed by the torch next to the door. He is holding a long sword in one hand, and loosely holds a shield in the other. He staggers a few feet into the establishment and it becomes apparent to the remain patrons that it is a Mairhar, one of the dales defenders. His face wears a pattern of sweat, dirt, and dried blood.

"They have taken...the Sharburg" his words escape his lips just before his body slumps to the floor in a heap. Now visible as he lay upon his belly are six black arrows with Black Feathers which have pierced the chain mail beneath his Mairshars tabard and one which caught him in the back of the leg.

A man also wearing the Tabard of the Mairsharss stands quickly from his table near the back of the tavern and rushes to the fallen man's side. "Drahn Ek!" he yells as he crosses the room. He turns the soldier over to his side and begins to attempt to tend to his wounds. Realizing they are outside of his knowledge he quickly calls to the tavern "Are there any blessed with the faith, this man needs healing!"

From outside the open door sounds can be heard from the streets, first a dull roar similar to that of the hearth in the establishment, then a few screams rising into the cold night time air, the crash of a few windows. Someone is attacking the town.

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
I shoot up from my seat knocking my chair to the ground. I finished my ale in one huge gulp and rush to the open door of the tavern. My eyes peek outside to see if any danger is coming while I reach in to my coat to grab my rapier.
"Well This night just keeps getting better and better," I thought to myself.

"As long as lodging is provided, we'll survive well on tips. You've seen that for yourself," I say.

Then I get distracted by the man bursting through the door.

Sitting calmly in the table drinking his ale when the man colapses on the entance of the tavern. Anoroc wipes his lips and puts his mug down. Looks around to the reaction of the crowd to see how there taking the situation at hand. He walks up past  the guys and takes a look outside after timothy and comes back in side. "looks like itsbgetting very ugly those of you who are able to walk best you get moving to safety" anoroc the starts to flex his musscles and streches out.

Re: Chapter 1: The Royal Flagon Presents....
The crowd inside the tavern watches as Sevain's touch restores color to Drahn Ek. His eyes open slowly and look up at Sevain. "Lead, them, they will follow. Do not let Tegals Mark fall" his eyes close again as he slips into a restful slumber.

His fellow Mairshar looks to Sevain "My name is Eldrai and you have earned my respect. I will follow you into combat as soon as I can get Drahn Ek somewhere to rest."

"He can stay here, bring him to the back. All of you listen to that man." Zhan points to Anoroc."Gather your things, go to your home and grab whatever you feel comfortable with. It's time to defend our city! Zhan says to those remaining in the tavern as he assists with getting Drahn Ek to his personal room in the back of the tavern.

The people inside tavern begin funneling into the streets heading for their homes, or into battle with the invading forces. The roar seems to be getting closer, and now there is a feint scent of smoke on the bone chillingly cold air.

Crash steps up beside Luna "Well, looks like the hordes have descended. You ready?" He looks on with a stern grimace at the thought of going into combat as his hands instinctively notch a bolt into his hand crossbow.

OOC: That brings us to the end of Chapter 1. I will post up XP for Roleplaying in the roleplay tab. Sevain and Luna have earned the Inspiration award for this Chapter. I will post up the rules for inspiration in the rules thread so you can see what that awards you. I will also be posting Chapter 2 here soon which will call for initiative and actions for the upcoming battle. Things are going to get a fair bit more technical but I don't want to sacrifice the roleplay aspect so remember I award extra xp for good roleplay even during combat. So be descriptive!
