Re: [The Lord of the Rings RPG 2] Xelin and Kye
- Mascatarma glared at Xelin until she was finaly dragged away by Carag
to the inn, which was populated mainly by hobbits. Mascatarma eyed
each one threateningly and they had quite some trouble getting a room
with her suspiscious behaviour. After a while argueing Carag finaly
managed to sort out a room for them all and he marched Mascatarma
upstairs and ordered her to sleep. She didn't put up any resistance
and fell asleep immediatly, with eyes wide open in the typical elf
way. Carag left them shortly and returned with some soup, he handed
it out to all except Mascatarma who still slept. He ate his hastily,
even this thick vegetable soup was tasty compared to the orc meats he
had been raised on. After finishing his food he sat on the window
seat and stared out at the Shire, looking sorrowful and troubled.
- ooc: finally i got through all those posts! sheesh...
ic: Gwenhwyvar was relieved to finally reach the Shire. Though she
was happy for Xelin and Kye, she was very disappointed in the way
Mascatarma behaved when they met Kye. While they stood there
watching the happy reunion of Xelin and Kye, she was surprised to
hear Carag tell her that he longed for the same thing. But he also
said that he didn't believe it was meant for him. That puzzled her,
why would he think that he should be denied the love of another if it
was something he desired. She pondered the notion for a moment while
she followed Carag and Mascatarma to the inn where, after much
arguing and reassuring of the innkeeper, they got a room and some
food. The four of them, Carag, Mascatarma, Enil and Gwenhwyvar, sat
in silence eating soup and making sure Mascatarma stayed asleep.
After they ate, they made small talk, discussing various aspects of
Enil's kingdom and the like. Then they lit a fire in the fireplace
and just stared at it for awhile, each of them deep in their own
thoughts, all of them wondering what the morning would bring...
- Carag moved from his window seat and pulled a chair over to the fire
and warmed his hands above the flame. He looked at Gwenhwyvar
curiously until he finaly brought himself to ask her what had been
bothering him, he was afraid that she would take it the wrong way
though. He took a deep breath and began, "Gwenhwyvar, I must ask you
something now and I don't want you to feel that I am accusing you of
anything, for I am not but my curiousity drives me to ask this." He
paused and ran his fingers through his hair in his usual manner and
continued, "Why is it that you help myself and Mascatarma. You could
just leave and live a happy life instead of being stuck with us, us
freaks. It is just that I have learnt you never get anything for
free, and since you help us much I fear the price will be too great
for us to pay." He put his head in his hands and golden strands fell
foward, "The truth I suppose is that I've never been able to trust
anyone, it is just one of my many weaknesses. I dread that my
weaknesses will cause Mascatarma's and my downfall." He sat up and
flicked his hair back, revealing his pointed ears and spoke even
more, "I fancy that I will bring nothing but trouble to all I get
close to, just look at my mother."
OOC: Argh...how depressing was that post!
- Morra lazily swung her blade beheading two other hobbits.Several ran
at her waving their daggers and swords. She chopped one in half with
her sword and began chanting in elvish to the others. They stoped
confused and looked around to see where the loud voice speaking
elvish was coming from. The little shack grew dark as her voice
intensified. The ground under the hobbits began to shake.
Theywhimpered and tried to move but they were stuck. With a loud
crash the earth directly under the hobbits split and they tummbled in
the deep hole. THe hole closed as soon as they slipped through so no
one else could get near and fall. Morra closed her eyes for a moment
and sighed. "Let's go now." She said opening her eyes looking around
at her friends huddled in various corners of the room.
- Gwenhwyvar listened carefully to what Carag had to say. As she
listened, her face took on a troubled expression. When he was
finished she paused for a moment and then spoke, "Carag, I know it's
very hard for you to understand, but let me try to help you." She
paused again before continuing, "My purpose in life is to help
people, wherever they may be, whatever help they may need.
Mascatarma has hurt alot of people and I was not able to help them
all, in fact, I was unable to help hardly any of them. But, now, I
have the opportunity to help you and your mother. If Mascatarma can
change and give up her life of hurting people, then just think of all
the people I am helping by keeping her from hurting them." She
stopped realizing she sounded somewhat confusing. She looked at him
and sighed. "My help will not cost you or your mother anything.
Because if I don't help you, it may cost thousands more much more
than they are willing to pay. And as to whether or not you deserve
it, it is not my place to decide who deserves what. I just do the
best I can." Then she fell silent and leaned back in her chair,
staring at the fire.
- Destiny blinked a few times in astonishment after that incident. She
was still shaking but smiled weakly.
"Yes...lets go...must .. leave" she attempted to crawl out from under
the bench and hit her head.
"I'm gonna be blue even when this paint washes off" she muttered as
she more carefully stood up, ready to walk out the door
- OOC: *Waves at Gwen and picks a Hawaii soveneir off the floor* Gee!!
I always wanted one of these, whatever it is!! Lets see, I think we
dragged you along so your somewhere near the Shire...Mascatarma
Gwenhwyvar and Xelin...I think thats all...Are in the Shire, while
Morra, Delphine Aduial and Destiny got captured by Evil Canibal
Hobbits With Mutant Sticks, but now they're on their way out of the
evil canibal place..Oh yes, and Morra gave you a pony which we
pretended that you gladly accpeted...So do what you will with that!!
Or if you want us to find you, just say the word!!
IC: "Yes yes!!" Said Delphine cheerily and darted through what used
tto be the door, before turning around and rushing back, grabbing a
mutant stick off of a headless Hobbit, running back and hitting
everyone on the head with it. (watch out! Delphine's back in
business!!) "Where are we going?" She asked quizically.
- Carag listened to Gwenhwyvar carefully, he knew she was right even if
he didn't understand this whole helping people idea. "Well
Gwenhwyvar, I'll tell you this. You are a better person than I." He
got up and lay on the bed that was next to Mascatarma's and pretended
to sleep, for it is nearly impossible to tell if a elf is asleep or
not due to its open eyes. Throughout the whole night he lay thinking
about things and watching over Mascatarma, he didn't dare sleep with
her around. At sunrise Mascatarma began to shuffle around and Carag
sat bolt upright, his dagger hadn't moved from his hand all night.
Mascatarma thought her son was becoming paranoid, too paranoid to be
normal she was beginning to think.She sat up and began to brush her
hair, "You alright Carag?" Secretly he thought 'Like you care' but
all he said was "I'm fine, thankyou." Mascatarma smiled and went to
get a wash, she returned looking happier and refreshed, "Are the
others awake yet?" Carag shrugged and carefully cleaned his dagger
- Carag was having a fitful nights sleep. He knew Enil from
somewhere before but couldnt remember. And this was keeping
him up. He also felt that his mother and Enil were connected
somehowThe next morning he sought out Xelin and told him
of what he felt.
"Your mother was in Mirkwood"
Maybe its a repressed memory"
maybe nut I do know we have to help Enil get back his throne
