- Thieves' guild eh? - Domerth said. He heard about such a syndicate before, but compared to some of the smuggling operations present, the Thieves' guild was like a pincher in front of a mastiff. Wherein smugglers often clashed with the authorities in open combat, the members of this Thieves' Guild were far more docile. As far as Domerth could remember from the reports and interrogations of captured thieves, not a single member of the Thieves' Guild syndicate hasn't commited the crime of murder. They'd break in to steal, not to kill.
But as part of his duties as the future Captain of the Brotherhood, and Duke of North Shandra, Domerth had issued several punishments of public lashing to the captured thieves belonging to this organised crime group, and carried out the punishments himself on several occasions.

- I'm not in favor of the idea of consorting with thieves.- Domerth said. - But as for you... We'll make a man out of you yet.

- "It's not there is much of a choice in the matter. I could've become a fighter, but my ma', the guildmaster, had objections towards that." Larkas recalls his mother didn't approve of him becoming a warrior, mostly because he'd have to serve as the law enforcement, and that could clash with the interests of the thieves' guild. "Besides, being a thief is way more interesting and challenging. Anyway, if someone needs my services, I'm available."

- Is that so..? - Domerth said. - Well, your talents could be of use to us, just not in the way you used to work before. Remember, all your previous loyalties and afiliations are forfeit. You are a part of the Brotherhood, the last of the Nine.

The Company continued the trek on the main road. Soon enough however, disaster struck.

Someone had fired a crossbow bolt at one of the wagons.
Nivera had fired a volley from her musket at the direction from which the enemy projectile came.
The company heard a battle cry in a strange and foreign to most tongue. Only John, MAgnus and Nivera had recognized that warcry. Mere moments later robed cultists armed with simple crossbows and warschytes, which seemed to be remade from farmers tools, some even retaining their original handles, emerged from the surrounding orchards.
Domerth swung his massive axe at the ones charging at him, nearly cutting one in half. Magnus was manning one of the wagons, and was picking them off with his repeating crossbow.

"Come and have a taste of my Ripper", Alder bellowed as he jumped out of the wagon he was sitting in.  In his hands was his trusty weapon - an ornate chained sickle, and the only faithful companion he had.  
A trio of the attackers noticed him and charged forward hoping to take Alder down, but ended up mutilated by Ripper's sharp blade.  He noticed another trio of crossbowmen getting ready to fire at him, so he quickly grabbed one of the corpses below and used it as a meat shield against their bolts.  As the bolts hit the corpse, Alder dropped it and rushed straight towards the shooters with his weapon at the ready.  He swung the sickle sideways with so much force that it cut straight through two of the men.  The third one ended up getting chained and quickly kocked out by a single punch from Alder.  Amidst all the confusion, Alder grabbed a crossbow from the ground along with a quiver of bolts and hid among the bodies from where he tried to shoot down the attackers.

"WHA HA HA HA HA HA! THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!" Brynhildr shouted, charging in head first. With shield in hand, she deflected arrows before impacting with a 'SMASH' sending the hit cultist flying backwards as she spun around, burying the axe in the one previously to her right. With her back now to them, she brought her shield up, deflecting a hit from her right before yanking out the axe and jumping at the assailant, pinning them to the ground with the shield but quickly got up and bashed another incomer with it before finishing of the laying one with the axe.

"COME ON! GIMME' A REAL FIGHT, YE COWARDS!" she shouted at them, arms outreached in mockery before catching an incoming scythe with her arm, punching the holder with her hand still holding the axe and kicking the holder to the floor.

Yelling caused everyone to get on their feet. Larkas came out and saw some men charging at them. Larkas takes out his dagger, then takes a deep breath for the battle.

He points at one of the cultists and shouts: "Hey, you are so fat the Earth rotates around you!"

The cultist charges towards Larkas. However, Larkas takes out his knives and throws two of them at the cultist's arm, causing him to drop the weapon. Next, Larkas throws a knife at his face, causing the man to scream in pain before his throat being slit by the dagger.

"Whoa!" Larkas nearly dodges the incoming bolt from one of the crossbows. Seeing Alder, Larkas also takes up the body to protect himself. Creeping up to the shooter, Larkas throws the body onto the shooter, causing him to drop the crossbow.

"Say hello to my little friend." Larkas shows the dagger and stabs the cultist. With the matter resolved, Larkas hurries up to join the others and make quick sneak attacks.

Hahn was little worried about regular arrows and bolts.. his training allowed him to deflect both with his bare hands..or to dodge those who he could not deflect..so he closed in on the melee fighters.  One barely missed, ripping his robe down the front, and others closed in on the unarmored weaponless man.

His hands moving like lightning, he hit the one up close with him in rapid succession.  First he took out a knee, then as the figure started falling, the next target was the chest, and then finally the figures head.. the figure fell .. not moving.  Unfortunately that limited his ability to dodge, and he winced as a scythe dug into him.

'Elepaio was tucked in between sacks, reading, in one of the carts as usual. She was startled to hear a bolt hit the cart wall. She leaned up and lazily climbed out of the cart.

“Perhaps I owe Alder an apology”, she muttered.

She was going to have to be reserved with her flames, would not want to nick the carts. Stretching, she summoned two snakes of fire. She twirled them around in a needless show before sending them straight into the war crying maws of two cultists. Their war cries turned to screeches of pain as they boiled in their own organs.

A trite display, “But it would not be fun otherwise”, she thought, sending a wave of flame into pack of cultists.

"Ambushes, so cheap..." Rodrigo thought, not having time to don his armour he just put his bascinet on and his cloak, and charged with his zweihander.
-Today isn't a good day to die friend, why would you force me to work now?- he told a cultist moments before headbutting him. -Whoops, forgot I am a goat.- "Heh, that never gets old." he smirked, then he proceeded to cleave at a running foe.

Orryth was a bit slow to respond, but respond he did. Upon leaving the wagon's light cover, however, he was almost immediately welcomed by a crossbow bolt grazing his arm. It was only deep enough to draw blood, but with that he hoped that these enemies weren't dealing with any poisons. He shrugged it off for the time being, and stepped out fully. Seeing a couple cultist wielding crossbows in the distance, he decided to deal with them. Chanting and staring, Orryth called upon his magical abilities. With an action akin to throwing a ball, he sent a glob of green goo flying at the two. From the look upon his face, it was obvious that it was not what he had intended on doing.

Domerth reached for one of his wheellocks, and released a shot at the cultist which had struck Hahn. Part of the cultist's head exploded due to the large bore projectile.

Mgnus was covering Halfman with his crossbow, while the miniature wizard was incanting a spell of some sorts. The red crystal in the sorcerer's staff glowed with an dim light, which brightened as Halfman was nearing the completion of the spell.

Nivera had finished reloading her musket, as Halfman completed his incantation. Red beams of energy bursted from the crystal, hitting several cultists, igniting them from the inside. For his next spell, Halfmann resorted to blood magic, which learned several decades ago. He took controll of one of the cultist's body, and started attacking the other ones.
This created chaos amongst the cultist ranks, which gave the company much needed edge.

When the cultists began their assault John was unimpressed. There were many of them, certainly, but it didn't look like they have the equipment or training to seriously threaten the group. So, he took out his huge shield and took a defensive position, guarding some of the Brotherhood's ranged fighters and observing the new recruits in battle.

Larkas was clearly new to this kind of battle, but his sharp wit helped him get by and he was adapting quickly. He wished Alikha, the company's old master-in-arms was still here, he would've given Larkas all the training he needed.

Alder was... something different altogether. It was a rather rare sight to see someone wielding a sickle on a chain. Especially so effectively. It was clear he was no stranger to a fight, including fighting multiple foes. His skills would prove useful on certain missions.

At this point John saw Hahn getting hit by a scythe. He left his position and ran towards the monk. Domerth took care of the attacker, but another one was on his way, trying to finish what his comrade started. John changed his direction to intercept the new threat and swung his shield so hard that the cultist flew several meters right into another group of foes, breaking his ribs in the process. John carefully picked up Hahn with his free hand and retreat back to the wagon, defending them from crossbow fire with his shield.

"That's not right, someone's gonna pay for this" Rodrigo thought as he observed his shoulder bleeding, his linen tunic was getting red by the minute, after debilitating his foe he started pulling back to the wagons, even if the cut wasn't deep enough he wouldn't want to risk passing out from the sight of his own blood.

As he reached the wagons he took a strip of cloth and bandaged the cut, then he sat down, trying to fight back the nausea.

"Hopefully there isn't a second wave or something." Larkas thought, as he ran towards others. Since a dagger is too tiny for this battle, Larkas grabs one of the scythes and charges at one of the attackers.

The opponent also waves the scythe and intercepts Larkas, who evades the attack. They both clash with their weapons, though the opponent has the advantage. Larkas stares at this man while trying to suppress the attack.

"Eat my dust!" Larkas spits in the man's face. The man is surprised and is obviously disgusted. With his guard down, Larkas slashes the man, leaving a wound at his chest. The man, who is knocked down also dropped his weapon down and is quickly subdued.

The half-orc approaches the man and takes out his dagger. Just as he is to stab the man, Larkas stops for a bit. He sees a lot of fear in the man's eyes. Larkas is surprised and withdraws his dagger.

"But I have another wonderful idea." Larkas starts punching the man until he drops unconscious. With the man knocked out, Larkas drags him back to the wagons, so the superiors can intimidate the man to reveal some information about the attack.

"Whoa!" she shouted enthusiastically at the cultist flying through the air by the half-giant. she took a quick look around and found one of the cultists seemingly attacking it's own in the largest concentration and her mind was made up. She ran as fast as she could right at the confused mass and shoved several in front of her with her shield and letting them land in a pile before turning around and kicking one and cleaving another. She had gotten herself surrounded but her enemies were confused and disorganized both from the seeming betrayal and her charge and she reveled in the coming slaughter. An arm flew off, a leg and it's body felled down, separated, a head lobbed up in the air and blood spurted all over the ground and combatants and she started singing an old war-melody.

((Depending on the construction, not every war scythe is an effective stabbing weapon, esspecially those that were converted to a weapon from the agrocultural tool, since these have their blades curved inwards, for you know, mowing grass, or cutting grains. I'm sure that Mysty's character was cut and not impaled.))

Domerth had expended all three of his pistols, each shot killing a cultist. He had resumed to fight with his massive battle axe. There were few of the cultists left, however none showed their will to yield. From what Domerth learned from either his Father, other company veterans or the Company's annals, the soldiers of the Cult of Jagnir refused to surrender. During the war, only ones were captured by either knocking them out or otherwise incapacitating.


Domerth and the rest had successfully repelled the attack short after. This band of cultists, although superior in numbers, were inferior in their skill. It was not without casualties in the Company, as several members suffered injuries.

There was no need to order to tend to the wounded, as Nivera had already been tending to the wounds of Hahn. Mumbling words of the incantation used by dryad healers, she was trying to stop the monk from bleeding out.
- I need something to clean the wound! Fast! - She shouted. she had managed to stop the bleeding, at least temporarily. Magnus tossed her a flask with liquor in it.
- Tis be firewater lass! - The dwarf said, as he spat onto the corpse of one of the cultists. The roadsides were littered with their corpses.

After reloading his pistols, Domerth went to see Larkas, who had managed to knok out one of their attackers.
- Restrain him tightly. - Domerth said to the Half-Orc. - Make sure he can't escape.

"Very well. Let me do something, first." Larkas strips every piece of cloth from the man, whose wound was quite deep. Using some rope, the man's arms and legs were tied up in a knot.

Larkas comes to the nearest healer and points at the man. "Once you are done, please tend that man's injuries, but do not wake him up yet."

Seeing so many wounded, Larkas recalls how a lot of people in Manaar were mages. Whenever there was a battle in the town, from a tavern brawl to a jousting tournament, the Manaarri came out of the temples to heal every person, whether they lost or won. However, a lot of losers were demoralized and even demanded a rematch from their previous opponent. These mages never refused to tend to someone, though they tried to convert people to their faith.

Trying not to think about his hometown, Larkas looks at the man's valuables: a bag of gold, the robes and the scythe. Once the man is bandaged up, Larkas carries his unconscious body to one of the wagons.

'Elepaio was inspecting her hair with her mirror.

"If those cultists even damaged a strand!"

The ground wheezed and hissed as the blood around her evaporated. She put her mirror back. Her hair was alright, thank the gods! She tip toed across the bodies attempting to avoid stepping in blood. She approached Nivera.

"Want me to cauterize it?" she asked lightheartedly.

"Pathetic", Alder spat as he dragged the unconscious crossbowman towards the wagons.  He tied him up with some rope and put him down on the ground in a sitting position.  
Alder then went over to Domerth.
"I didn't expect to see Jagnir's cultists again, but it appears that my hunch was wrong.  These are initiates, I'd assume from the skill they've displayed here", the cloaked man said, "This doesn't bode well, I'll tell you that.  If they could afford to send men against us, that means they've recovered.  I advise proceeding with utmost caution from now on."

As the green goo went flying in the area, it suddenly expanded. The cultist crossbowmen went wide-eyed for a bit, knowing they could not get out of the way of whatever this stuff was. It soon splattered all over them, covering them from head to toe. They looked over each other, confused as to what this stuff was, and what it did. They decided it didn't matter and went back to the attack. As they did so however, the goo hardened, freezing each one in place. Unfortunately for them, suffocation ended up being the end result as well.

Orryth could see the others of the Brotherhood were finishing off the remainder of their foes, so he went over to study his work. Taking out his pickaxe, he gave the hardened shell a couple taps. It sounded as one would expect from the thing hitting rock.

"Well, sorry about that. It was meant to be a quicker death for you, but at least people can look upon these...well they are quite crude, but they're statues of you! Haha!"

Laughing a bit more, Orryth walked away, looking for something to wrap up his arm.
