The icy winds of Frosthold pierce through my skin.  The chill runs all over my body.  I hold my arms close to warm myself but it still remains.  The thought of Mitsu’s regicide just worsen the coldness in me.  Still I cannot believe it.  I have been with her for a short time and all I see in her is a very good and righteous friend.  I assume that if Mitsu really did it she must have a better reason, better than how I did mine and all I want to know is why.  

A sudden rush of blood flows in me.  I feel so eager to see Mitsu and seek some answers but this is Frosthold.  I should not be seen loitering around the place that sees me as an enemy particularly now that the king is dead.  I sigh slightly seeing that I can’t do any but to wait.  I move closer to the group (especially to Onyx, it’s warmer besides him ) and stay silent but observant.

I ponder an idea and decide to act on it.

I look at the group and say:

"Wait here, I'm going to see if I can sneak my way into the prisons."

I look at Shady and say:

"Well boy, you know what I'm thinking, right? Let's do this...this should be fun."

I smirk as I morph into cat form and have Shady chase me ((the old cat and dog routine ) into the vicinity of the prisons, trying to take advantage of the confusion to find a way in somehow.

I also dust myself off. I also move around some. My body feels strange after that, and I want to make sure everything still works.

“Well, that was a bit unpleasant. But it was needed, I guess. At least we are here.”

I turn to the entrance of Frosthold, and step a little closer.

“Okay. Now that we are here, let’s go see what we can find out about what happened during your absence. Not much I can do stealth-wise now, though. So, I think I'll just head in.”

So, I head in.

"Good idea buddy" Saphire says cheerfully as she locks her left arm in Vlad's right.  She begins to march him off to the closest bar.  "And I'm buying for anybody who can outdrink me" the bard says with a playful smirk.  

Jade follows in tow.  "The gods only know how that woman hasn't died of liver failure yet" she mutters.  "I sw- Agh!" The dog and cat run playfully through her legs, towards the castle.  

The three find a small tavern a few feet after the gate of the castle.  Around a roaring fire dance buxom beer wenches to drunken stories of glory.  The trio can not recall being in a more inviting bar or a better place to find out about the regicide.

Outside, the rest of the group stirs in the cold.  "There are some things that even the Gods do not know" Moon says with a toothy grin.  Various citizens and guards start to form around the goddess, drawn to her majesty, yet fearful of approach.  

Onyx observes the growing crowd, eyeing each member with suspicion.  "Looks like the citizens haven't ever seen a goddess before.  A useful distraction for paying a visit to my apprentice.  If you'll excuse me."  Onyx begins to walk off towards the crowd but turns back to Moon with a smile.  

"Blake!  Ceres!  Why don't you two join me.  I think Moon will find a way to keep herself busy.  After all, It's not every day people have the opportunity to meet a goddess!" he states loudly, inciting the crowd to begin to move in to meet the ranger.  

Moon grits her teeth.  "That son of a-Hello, Hello" she greats the crowd warmly as she eyes the magi slink away towards the castle.  "It's too late for me Elvin!  Run!" Moon orders to the warrior before he is engulfed in a sea of admirers.

Within minutes, the castle doors and exasperated guards stand before the three.  Two streams of people trickle into the castle; one in and one out.  The guards are proving to be poor dams, and more and more people file into the castle, with complaints and opinions about all sorts of matters.  Onyx, being the opportunist he is, uses the pandemonia to slip the three inside.

Hundreds of people mill about the great hall, demanding this and arguing that.  Nobles, merchants, serfs, soldiers, and everybody in between argue feverishly about who will lead.  Such debate and passion allow the Shady and Fate to dart towards the lower levels.  

"I have to give him credit.  That was a good idea." Onyx says with a wry smile as he steals after the ranger.  

Echoes of the madness bounce up and down the dungeon walls, bringing unintelligble word of the outside world to Mitsu and her unidentified ((OCC:  You may want to identiy who you are Azagal, why you are in the dungeon, and how you can help out the cause)) cell mate.  As the beats resonate through the prison, curious noises spring to life in the shape of meows and barks.  The guards lumbering outside the door are startlted by the sight.  

"Eh?!  What's this?!" shouts one he draws a halbred on Shady.  "A runty dog and a mangey cat?"  

"Put your halbred down" shouts the other "before you cut someone in twain!"

"That would be a wise idea gentlemen" a cold voice suggests.  "It's been a long day and I have very little patience for fools like you."  Onyx says as he, Ceres, and Blake stand before the two guards.  

"Would you like to explain what you are doing in that cell, Apprentice?" asks Onyx as the two guards pull their weapons on the three.

Mitsu chuckles half-heartedly.  "Thought I needed a vacation.  Thought hanging from a jail would be a nice break.  What do you think I am doing here?  My duty.  Seems there were some vermin in the palace, and they needed to be cleared out.  You know as well as I that is all I can say."

The scene before her does not catch her as unsual.  She would have done the same in Onyx's place.  She also knew that she would get an ear full, even though he would know she was correct.

"Everything OK back there?" I chortle at Jade's startlement.

I quietly chant a dirty marching cadence to myself until we get to the tavern. I then tell Saphire in a half-whisper, "Alright here's the plan. We, are going to pack in as much drunken revelry as a place like this will allow."

With that, I immediately signal the barkeep for the first round of drinks...

((I assume I can walk through gaps in the prison bars, right? ))

I walk through a gap in the prison bars, Shady close behind and I crawl up to Mitsu's ear and whisper, looking at Azagal.

"Can he be trusted? I could care less about how the guards would react to me morphing, but I don't know him."

I slowly walk up to the bars slowly and stare at Mitsu for a few moments. "Why did you leave like that? So it's true you assassinated the king?"

Mitsu almost cried when she saw Elvin, and how hurt he looked.  Almost.  "Yes, it is true.  I left because I had to, but I can not explain further.  It is a matter of honor.  Please tell me you understand."

Mitsu hangs her head.  "You know I would not leave unless I had to.  Just as you knew that I would return when I could.  If it is too much for you I understand.  Without my honor I am nothing..without you I will be better off in the hands of the executioner." She has a look of pain as if admiting that was harder then anything she had done before.

Mitsu nods.  "Of course.  It is our way.  As for getting out, that is not a problem.  It is getting out and not being hunted after.  There is something that I can get that will explain everything without me having to break my vow.  Unfortunately, I will have to depart to get it."

She shrugs, and looks at the group.  "You all will have to come with me, or they will believe you aided my escape.  At least until we find the proof I need.  What say you all?"

Azagal who was out from the poison he was given earlier slowly regained his consciousnes. "Uuuuuuuuuugh" he moanend while he was still lieing on the floor.Blake, Mitsu, Ceres, Onyx, Elvin, WinterFate turned towards him.
"Uuhhh... My head... autsch" He stod up with his back towards the group who had just entered. He takes a quick look at Mitsu haning in front of him and then looks across the room (without turning arround). "This doesn't really look like home.... Hi there" he talks to Mitsu dangling from the wall in front of him. "Nice to meet you I'm Azagal. You wouldn't by any means know how I landed here would you?"

Mitsu: "Well you came flying through the door and knocked your head pretty bad.

Azagal: "So I've gathered..." He scratches the wound on his head with a unhappy impression. "Let's see... For some reason the master had invited me to join him for dinner... after drinking a bit they told me that the king got assasinated. Ha... they must have druged me during the dinner.... no wonder I was invited for dinner"

He sighes "Well see you lady I have to be making my escape now because I'm not inparticulary interested in geting executed. It was nice knowing you. Enjoy yourself! Bye B..."
He couldn't get the last words out of his mouth when he turned around and faced 3 warriors and 2 animals.
"...ye?" He saw the broken door and the two guards lieing next to it... they didn't seem to be in the best condition.

Boy today really isn't my day! My order dismisses me because I've failed to protect the king which means I'm as good as dead... But why did they throw me into this joke of a cell I don't even have any enchanted chains on my hand and feet? They know that a bird cage like this wouldn't hold me for 5 seconds... Prehaps it has something to do with the lady hanging from the wall

He looks back at Mitsu, then at the group in front of him, then back to Mitsu and back to the group again.

Azagal: "Are these your friends charming-lady-who-hangs-from-a-wall?"
Mitsu: "Yes"

HA! I knew it! Hmm but that doesn't really help me does it...Hmmm no... Anyways

Azagal: "Well it was nice to meet you all and now have a pleasant stay. I really apreciate it that you've opened the door for me eventhough it wouldn't have been necessary."
He starts to walk past the group in the direction of the door. He's almost out when he hears a voice: "Not so fast."

Azagal: "I'm sorry but I must be going now! There is a secret organisation which I have failed my duty to, thus it is now going to kill me in ways more excrushiable than you could possibly imagine. Maybe you understand that I'm not toooo eager to just sit here with you guys and wait for them to decide whether to cook me alive or to shred me into tiny bits. Some other day prehaps? But not today! Goodbye again."

He turns and want's to step out of the door. Suddenly his body does not move.

"I said: Not so fast". The voice was a bit unfriendlier than before.

Azagal lets out a loud sigh.

Azagal: "You don't really seem to realize the deepness of the snow I'm in do you? Ok let me explain it again:
I'm Azagal I am.... well I used to be the highest ranking templar the Order of Frosthold. This is a secret organisation which has existed since the beging of this land. It is our duty to protect this land and therefor we have to protect it's rulers aswell. The order itself consists of: The council of 9 (they are the big bosses), there personal protegés the agent commanders (I was the highest ranking one), our agents and many more. As I was the highest in command it was my duty to protect the king from any harm. Wasn't really exciting nevermind. Now the King has been killed while I...
Well that doesn't matter the fact is that I was uncareful and someone killed the king and now the order is going to kill me (as I've allready tried to explain to you...) for failing them. Funny story isn't it? And now I would really like to be off because I have some unseatled business to attend to and I don't feel like dieing today."

I reach into my pack and pull out a vial of vial of some sort of liquid. I raise it above my head, ready to throw it at the guards. All of a sudden, the guards are down and the door is broken, for some unknown reason. I put the vial back into my pack.

"Well, that saves that, I guess."

I move over to the guards, looking down at them, then back to Ceres and Onyx.

"I either blacked out for a bit, some time magic has been used, or something really weird has just happened..."

About this time would probably be when Azagal starts heading out. I head into the cell. I see Mitsu hanging around.

"So your the supposed assassin friend of the group's? Well, I can't free you from the chains very easily, right now, but I can probably get you off that wall."

I cast Acid Arrow at the section of the chains attached to the wall.

"We rune mages don't need to prepair spells.  We just can not cast as many as the traditional mages.  If everybody will gather around.  Oh yes, I almost forgot." She invokes Knock which should open the chains.  "Now gather close, and I will cover everybody in invisibility."  ((If she can cast a Mass Improved Invisibility, she will.  Otherwise it will be just a normal Mass Invisibility.))

Azagal says to Blake as he enters. Blake seems to ignore him.

Blake: "So your the supposed assassin friend of the group's..."
...
Mitsu: "Now gather close, and I will cover everybody in invisibility"

Azagal: " Woooow hold on a second!I'm still here remember?! Everybody that includes me doesn't it? I...ehhh...did you just call her "Assassin friend"?!? The charming lady on the wall wouldn't be the one that got me in here in the first place would she?"
