Time of trouble (IC)

A cool brisk breeze fills the night air, as the first day of winter brings a small dusting of snow.  The wind is howling, and it is cold enough to chill even the most seasoned of adventurers. The streets of Winterhaven are all but deserted as the smart people are holed up in their houses for the evening.

Inside of Ye Boar's Nest, the fireplace is blazing and the crowd is a bit rowdy.  During winter there is only two things to do in such a small sleepy town, fight and reproduce.. since it is a tavern the second is not happening very much.  The tavern keeper, one Bo Williams has his trusty 'peacekeeper' (a quarterstaff with extra weight on one end) nearby.. just in case.  A retired guard ((read high level)), he knows how to settle things down right quick if needed.  His girls, Kelly Jo, Patrice, and Amanda are helping the barmaids out tonight, his wife Amber Lynn is cooking in the back.  His lone boy is gathering more firewood for the fireplace.

Rumors fly that the Knights have been seen in the area, as have several people wearing goat masks.  The 'adventurers postings' are scarce, but the three best paying are of a similar bent.  The first is about mysterious lights coming from 'the old hags swamp' to the southeast on the border between Wilderkin and what was once know as the Kreights Kingdom.

The second is investigating rumors that a small band of orcs have taken possession of a coal cave.  The owner wants them cleared out.

The last is also a 'fact finding' mission.  Rumors have surfaced that a old mage tower has suddenly just appeared about a mile out of Winterhaven. The mayor is offering a reward for any information that proves useful.

Witold was sitting by the bar of the inn, finishing his tankard of ale. The smells coming from the kitchen indicated that the food would be served shortly.

The town of Winterhaven seemed nice enough little hamlet. If no other work would present itself, Witold planned on staying here and possibly getting a job as a town guard. But deep down, he hoped that it would not come to such an occupation, for Witold had already tasted the life of adventure, and anything besides that would be dull and quite frankly, pointless. He saw some jobs posted on the bulletin board, but hesitated to take one, for he thought that he should have someone to watch his back first.

Kelly Jo comes up to Witold.  "The lass over there," she points to a Red haired lady who is wearing Studded Leather armor, and has several daggers visible on here "sent you this." It is a mug of the high end priced ale.

The door opened and a green-skinned man in a dark red robe came in. He didn't appear to be wearing anything except his robe and was shivering. Without wasting any time he approached the bar.

"A tankard of ale and something hot to eat. Quick as you can, I'm freezing here."

Witold took the tankard, took a sip from it and went to sit by the woman who bought him this drink.
- Thank you for the drink. - He said. - I'm Witold, called the Red. What's your name?

Brugd

The bartender serves you a mid shelf ale ((Since you were not specific)),  "Amanda will bring you some house broth in a minute good sir. Two silver please."

Before you can fish out the silver pieces a balding mild aged man slaps down a gold piece "You can do better then that for our friend Bo.  This one is on The Shadow's Eyes." The man is about 5'7", wearing chain mail, with a Mace strapped to his side.  Around his neck is a pendent of Tyr ((The original not the 'True Tyr' of the Knights)). He looks at you "Don't see many Red Cloaks in the area, but anybody who wants to tweak the Knight's noses is ok in the Shadow's Eyes book.  My compatriot," motions to the female that Witold sat down by "and me are looking for people who might want to cause said Knights mischief.  Join us if you are interested."

Bo replaces the mid shelf ale with a top shelf one, and Amanda brings you a whole roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots, and various other side items.

Witold

The female looks you right in the eye, and leans in "Names Jade." She looks you over.  "You realize you are the most interesting person in here?  You have the look of somebody who has seen some action. I like that." She takes out a dagger and spins it on it's point while talking to you.  "Before we go further, however, ask yourself one thing." She grabs the dagger and puts it to your chin. "Can you handle me?" She grins.

Witold grabbed Jade's arm, the one with the dagger, and moved it away.
- I believe so. Had the pleasure to work with one of you rogue types. Although she didn't handled the goat shagers(The Wild) that attacked us few weeks before we reached this town. And that's pretty much the only thing that appears interesting, other than my height- He said smiling.

Brugd took a big gulp from the tankard and looked at the man in front of him and at the pair in the back (Witold and Jade). He then turned back to his food.

"Thank you, mister Eye. I'm always for smashing some Knight skulls. However, I'm still cold, so if you don't mind I'll get to eating while you explain who you two are and what exactly did you have mind. Then we'll see about joining forces."

With that Brugd dug into the roast.

Brugd
  The man chuckles "The Shadow's Eyes is an adventuring party, registered even.  Name is Randall, folks just call me Ran.  Woman sitting with that stranger is Jade.  She is a ... acquisitions specialist.  We happen to know that the Knights are sending some forces to check out the Strange Lights in the swamp, and the Mysterious tower." He gestures toward the bulletin board.  "We would like to get there first. We have another member, but they don't do well in cities.  Her name is Saphire, Jade's sister.  She is a Druid." He pauses.  "Why don't we go talk to Jade, and any more questions you have, I think we can answer."

Witold

Jade sits back, eyes twinkling.  "I thought today was going to be boring, just looking for help after a run in with a Dragon.  Out of 8 only three of us survived.  They should have known better then to attack a dragon, they don't need magic to be dangerous." Food and drinks arrive as you two are talking."

- Well, I'm here for the same thing. To find someone to go along adventuring with.- Witold said after drinking some of his ale.- And if that involves smashing some heads of the True Tyr followers and goat shagers, even better.

In Sylvan

A high pitched scream rings out from the edge of town, followed closely by a rumble and muffled shouts for help. A huge hole has opened up where the grand old oak of the town used to stand. On the bottom lies a man in robes completely entangled in vines and roots. His cries for help have been silenced by a firm foot on his throat. Above him stands the owner of the said foot, a dark skinned dryad with a look of disdain in her eyes.
"You desecrating larva, you will pay for what you've done!", she leans down close to his face. "I am going to have you make up for your mess, lie here contently and become the next oak that keeps watch over the travelers on this road.", she notices a few gold pieces that have escaped from a bag on the man's waist. Ignoring the pleading look in his eyes she grabs the bag. "I will be needing this too." She turns back to the man and draws her nail along his cheek, drawing a slight string of blood. "Consider this your penance for meddling with things you do not understand.", as she steps off the man roots sprout forth from the ground and start filling the hole, repairing the damage that was done to the nature. She balances on them as they get higher and soon the hole is no more. Just the dryad with a bag of gold and a small wooden box in her hands. She walks to the man's horse.
"Now to find a proper witch, you wouldn't know where to would you?", after a small pause she adds: "Hmph, of course not, you're a stupid horse aren't you? Just want to eat plants all day.", the horse neighs as in agreement.

Ytil has been staring at the campfire.
It has been one day and one night since the pursuit begun. Once more a fey is causing trouble in the civilized world, we cannot have that.

A finger caresses the edge of a knife.
I will take from you what you hold dear. Your favourite lock of hair shall be mine!

It is always possible that the human had it coming, having provoked the sylvan fury - Ytil snickers at the thought of a pissy treehugger - but that didn't matter much. Who could pass the opportunity to mess with a fey? Not this one. Ytil had made it a habit of messing with fey for over a century and that was not going to change anytime soon.

The dawn is fast approaching, the hunt continues. Tracking a dryad in the forest is all but impossible but she must have alerted a few creatures to her passing.

Inside town

Witold and Jade are joined by the two from the bar.  Introductions are made, and Witold is filled in about The Shadow's Eyes.  Though he is having a bit of a hard time concentrating as one of Jade's hands is on his leg.  The half-orc, learning that they are wanting to investigate the strange light is more then happy to tag along.  Jade looks at Witold "How about you, up for some .. action?" Witold is not sure if she means the lights, with her, or both.

Outside town

Ytil finds Elinia, but seems somebody else has found her first.  A woman with red hair, that looks a little .. wild, is standing in front of the dryad.  Ytil feels soft, warm breath on the back of Ytil's neck, and the is gently prodded by a cold wet nose to come out from where Ytil is.  The wild looking woman speaks to Elinia "For one of the forest spirits you seem not to mind leaving your trash to pollute it." Elinia's horse whinny's "I know.  Also, Trodder says he is not a 'stupid horse', and knew right where to take you to get some help."

The dryad swiftly steps close to the woman, grabs a strand of the red hair in her hand and looks up to her with an honest, questioning look on her face.
"Why is it still red?", she then waves her own, already brown, leaves with her other hand.
"See? Winter, already.", she seems to contemplate on it for a brief moment before snickering and looking up smiling playfully.
"Humans are weird. Many seasons, same leaves.", pointing at the hooded figure she continues: "The telella isn't mine.", her smile turns into a devious one.
"Yet."

Inside the town

"Excellent,then gather your things. We should go see what Sapphire is up to." Randall says.

Jade turns to Witold.. "Don't bother packing a tent, you won't need it." she grins.

As soon as she is out of earshot. "Hope you are not the jealous type," cautions Randall.."she is a very free spirit." he chuckles and shakes his head.."and flirts with anything that has a pulse."

Outside the town

The wild woman seems not to have a clue about what you are talking about ((Just because the wolf knew Ytil was there, doesn't mean Sapphire does)).  "The forest said that it was you who left that mage in the hole.."

Aiya. Ytil breathes a sigh and stays still for a moment. Turning around slowly, the form of a grey wolf comes into focus. Well, it cannot be helped.

"Who's a good wolfie?"

Animal empathy had always been one of Ytil's strongest traits but usually contact was established before coming face to face with a dangerous beast. Knowing that the wolf would have already attacked had it willed so, Ytil relaxes the muscles and assumes a non-threatening stance with the hands slightly outstretched. If only there was some jerky in the backpack..

Not taking eyes from the wolf, Ytil addresses the red-haired woman.

"For a druid you seem to be lacking in awareness but I am not one to talk, am I? What do you want with that Fey'ri?"

Outskirts of Town

Witold

Randall keeps a pleasant conversation going, just idle chatter, but Witold can tell that the cleric is keeping an eye out for trouble.  In the distance, the three can make out two forms in the middle of the road.  One is on a horse, and the other has the same hair color as Jade.

Outside of Town

Sapphire seems startled when Ytil talks, but quickly comprises herself.  "She left some trash in the forest, I am just reminding her to be more careful where she leaves things."  The wolf trods up to Sapphire.  "Good girl Tala, you best get back to your pack.. this winter will be a bad one.. and they will need your help to survive." The wolf licks her hand, then bounds off to parts unknown.

"It isn't trash!" The dryad snaps at the woman. "It's nutrients."
The smile has vanished from her face and stern, almost scolding look has taken it's place. "No living being is ever trash, we're all important to something." Her mouth turns into a warm smile.
"Even Red-Leaves."
