"That is what we have been dogged by since that damned Bear started chasing us. We have been lucky, incredibly so... unless there are only a couple of packs of these things in this part of the North. Why didn't we hear about this... oh. I get it."
But there is no time for Raimius to explain what he thinks.
That perks Rita up, but Raimius makes a negative noise in the back of his throat. And again, he does not explain. Instead, he nods and gets ready to make the dash.
Rita leaps up onto Sven's back so smoothy that the magical beast barely notices she is doing it until she is settled in place. "Okay boy" Rita whispers in his ear, "Just like she said, but we are giong to circle back if anyone gets in trouble. Right?"The Rookie wrote: ↑Tue Sep 12, 2017 6:20 am"Come on, pup. I just need you to keep being brave a little longer, ok?" Sylvi says in her more motherly tone while moving along side Rita's mount. "Here, how about you take Sven for me? You'll have to abandon the horses to get inside, so how about I take the horses to the stable and lock them up safe?" she continues while dismounting from her buck. "Just make sure you two stay a few meters behind you know who, but don't ever let him out of your sight."
On the second try, she also takes a small bit of her own hair with the draw. This may require a little more practice.DarkTheImmortal wrote: ↑Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:33 amShe quickly takes off the coat, slips on the sheath, and then puts the jacket back on. She reaches behind to slip her dagger into it.
"Now I just have to remember it's there" She said as she was practicing taking the dagger out and putting it back in.
"Ahhh... snooping?" Raimius is watching the corner that the big Birds disapeared around to make their kill. "I was thinking more like a sudden dash, right now, to find that door and get inside before the beasties can stop us! Lets get going."DarkTheImmortal wrote: ↑Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:33 am"well" She said kind of guiltily but kind of not. "I kind of pilfered it off of one of those templar thugs back at the inn. I played around with it that night, getting the feel of it ya know? and I found that the handle can come right off and reveal this key." She flashed the key into the air.
"If no one is around yet, I kinda wanna go snooping. They deserve it for sending someone with the key after us." She shrugged.
Raimius rolls his eyes at the girls. "Or... the stealthy approach? I don't know about that. It will take time, and we will be out in the open and visible, unless we stick to the trees ((see map)) and if we stay in the trees, we won't be able to see any of these birds until we are very close to them."
"The only thing I see that looks like a stable is that shed near where they Cow just died. Now let's - Freeze!"
Another bird appears, in the cluster of buildings to the right, just where Raimius was about to head towards. It is looking around, and seems to look straight at you from a few hundred feet away. Then the sound of cracking bones comes from where the others are feasting on the Cow. This new bird cackles and runs that way, across the bridge to the north side of the river.
"Okay, maybe a slight pause was for the best." Raimius has to admit."
((I might re-open this to a player soon, if that is alright you you two?"))
