|The Long Journey
I left from Tesoria to travel forth to the Wastelands and check on the Shanatu Tower established there.
After a long journey, I finally saw the Tower and several old familiar faces greeted me. They were friends from long ago, the last I had seen them was back at the old Temple.Shanatu X
returned from a his office after a long while. After the initial greetings things got to business pretty quickly.Creverex
Dude, so what are you working on thats kept you so busy?
Oh that, I'm getting ready to head out.
Great! So you're going to help me battle with the Tyrany Witch Alliance?!?
Oh.....shit.... no dude. The General contacted me and asked me to hold a position for him at Outpost 24.
Oh....well who's holding the Wastelands Tower then?
Sup Bud! I am!
Oh hey! I thought you were here but I didn't see your postion on the way in!
Remember? Its only visible at night.
So are things ready for when I'm in charge?
Yeah... things should be set.
Sweet! Although, I still hate this place.
I still can't get over that you're leaving to Outpost 24. I'm heavily outnumbered there and you outrank everyone there. You'd also be a boot in for a promotion.
Yeah, I'm just not as in to that as you were. Supposedly the post I have there is pretty sweet though.
Right. Well that's cool....
We decided to go out that night to celebrate the Day of Changes.
Everyone else was being fags and continued in their practices of isolation so they didn't go out and celebrate with us. I guess I can't really blame them. The strict White Fist control over the region is aggravating after awhile.
So, I went out with X and B to a bar that was a bit more sympathetic to multiple tribes as opposed to the many White Fist establishments that monopolize the area. There were several women there that were totally hot. I was macking it up with this one chick. X found this other chick. B was just chillin.
It was the Day of Changes. Things seemed to be going well. This cycle had been prophesized for years. I wondered if it began that day or the new moon. As I was wondering this, this one chick comes over and gives me a cheap replica princess crown. As it was placed upon my head, beer was accidentally poured over me. I guessed that it hadn't, but then I thought that maybe it was kind of like an annointing.
Later that night, my chick left, but X got this chick to come back to the Tower with us.
Everyone left and I took my time getting back. Upon my arrival, X and B left somewhere and I was left with this chick.
She was a Society of Light
chick all the way.
After just a little bit of talking, my mask was going crazy. I can't fully remember what happened, but somehow birthdates were mentioned. We were completely compatible. She even had markings on her body that fit with mine. From there on she was completely onto me.
I later noticed X was being kind of weird about it. I completely pulled away from Tenessa
, but she kept making hints and advances. We all hung out and everyone word and interest out of my mouth connected with her. Damn mask.
X and I talked briefly and I told him to just hang out alone with her.
She left the Tower soon afterward. That was a hard night that followed.
I reached an epiphany that night about women.
She ended up contacting me and we arranged another meeting with X and I and she and another friend. I was hoping that X bonded with her friend but that didn't happen. X played it cool though and left when Tenessa's friend left. I felt like crap.
Things evolved between Tenessa and me.
The next night we continued the celebrations and had the rest of our friends show as well. We decided to go to a small White Hat bar as it was right next to the camp. Things were going well until a large White Fist brawl started.
Small contingents of mixed tribes against a full capacity of white fist is never a good thing. Tenessa's contempt for the White Fists was high. She hated them. Like I said, years of oppressive regime will do that. Tenessa
Isn't there someone can do? Like a song or something?
I sang the song of White Fist brotherhood. The rest of the bar chimed in and it calmed the fight.Tenessa
I was joking. How did you know the White Fist song of Brotherhood?
Dude! He once sneaked in a found the old charts....
Its alright, dude. Thanks though. The truth is, I'm half White Fist.
I'm actually from this region. I haven't told anyone that for a long time.
After the Wontok War, the Shanatu were all but forgotten. My father was raised during this time. After he was separated from his parents, he ended up making his settlement here in the Wastelands. It was during the white fist rule that I was raised.
I never felt at home with the White fist, but I was raised as one of them. That's actually how all of us met. We just had a separatist feeling from the Fists. Crevnerek and I both learned their ways habits and traditions. Although over the years, it only intensified our disdain for their kind.
After begining my studies in military tactics and combat training, I soon surpased the other white hats. That only increased my distance from them.
After that, I'd hear of the legendary Emperor's return to power. I didn't believe it. I'd begun to hate the Shanatu as a result of my feeling ostracized for so long. I wanted it to just die. Also with them disbanded, maybe several others would become White Fist too so I had a larger regiment myself. I gathered five of my closest allies who were also disenfrachised with the White Fist with hopes of strengthening our contingent. With that, we left for the Temple Grounds......

|The Long Journey - Interlude
</b>We charged into the army of the West.</i>Ace of Spades</i>
They've commenced the attack! Surround the enemy!
Stick together team!
Keep close, protect the retreat!
Ditreberex cover my back!
Ace of Spades
Now! Begin the plan!
The Ace charged his forces inbetween my squad and Ms. Pain's. Ms. Pain
Retreat back to the compound!
My troops put in their heels to their horses and we formed a charge to the exit.Ace of Spades
Everything was going to plan. I was charging through to the West with the group of Shanatu moving to Tesoria. We were breaking through the final troops when I noticed the Hahirer
barely following along. He was barely holding onto his horse by the saddle. The Hahirer
Ditreberex, the Hahirer
My feet can't touch the bottom!
I rode up next to the Hahirer and grabbed him and pulled him up onto my horse. We continued riding away towards the west.
My plan went perfectly. Well, that is with the exception of the Hahirer....but that's to be expected I guess.Shogun of Tyranny
What kind of BULLSHIT is this!?!
A lone runner is charging through!
Shogun of Tyranny
Crunch! Go get his ass! I want to talk to this coolie personally!
Shogun Troop, Crunch
Sho nuff! He's coming right this wa......
Shogun of Tyranny
What the hell?!? Get back here!
Yeah right! You can suck on my diznik, Biznitch!
Shogun of Tyranny
Get this clown ass!
Several troops make attempts to catch him but Nezzeret blazed past them.Nezzeret
As we were travelling towards the City of the Ancients, the Hahirer asked how I knew we'd been able to escape so easily.
Well, I'll try to explain it without being a tard about it. The Ace of Spades surely guessed of an attempt to breakthrough. He knew that by keeping his troops small, that the appearance was that his troops made for the easiest breakthrough. What I gambled was that he guessed that I would lead the charge and then retreat towards the compound after giving space to my messengers.
What he didn't count on was my doing the dumbest thing possible and actually leaving the Outpost altogether. So, he sent his crack troops in to close off our retreat and separate us from Ms. Pain's troops. While the troops moved to obtain that position, we were free to just charge on through.
Okay.....errrrerrrrerrr so then why are you leaving the compound? I mean if it's so stupid?
Actually, it was the only choice I had. After obtaining the weapons, we're rendezvousing with Nezzeret and he knows the plan how to smuggle the goods back into the compound. After that, I'm escorting you guys back to Tesoria.
You're leaving the compound in its time of need to make sure that we're safe? Wow...ererrre thanks!
Uh no.... Actually, I'm going with you to Tesoria so I can request reinforcements from Keronasha, the Tesorian Commander.
Well, wait... if she sends reinforcements that would put me and the others back under your control, right?
heh heh......that's right.
The Hahirer promptly shut up and didn't say much to me for the remainder of the trip.
I met with Nezzeret. He'd obviously been successful in his attempt. I sent him through the North army because I knew that the Shogun had been looking for a good fight. I knew that he'd be able to capture and beat a large force, but Nezzeret by himself was too fast for the heavily armoured soldiers to catch and the witches wouldn't have time to prepare their spells. And I didn't want to risk him going southward only to encounter a problem with B-2000
pulling some time distortion or something.
After a shitty stormy and rainy trip we acquired the weapons and found the rations Nezzy had been talking about. It was huge. The camp could go for months on the amount of supplies there were. I gave Nezzeret the horses to use to transport all the goods. The Hahirer was about to bitch, but I shot him a glance and he shut the fuck up.
I lead my former troops into Keronasha
's encampment. The Hahirer quietly filed into his new position and we parted with just a few words and without much pomp. I could sense though, that we would cross paths again.
Unfortunately, Keronasha wasn't able to send troops to relieve the Seige of Outpost 36. I was too late. She had sent out a large contingent to patrol the large regions of Tesoria. She did agree to send a small squadron to investigate the surrounding area to inquire of signs of Zarnack
's whereabouts. Current Mood: satisfied

|The Long Journey - Interlude
I decided to just put the Ms. Pain
scenario on the bottom of things to worry about. I was losing members, time and Zarnack
was still nowhere to be seen. My falchon even came back with no news of any reinforcements.
To make matters worse, the Shogun of Tyranny
had laid seige to the Outpost. It was the clone Ace of Spades
' idea I'm sure. We quickly realized that we couldn't hold the fort much longer with the small rations that we had in the encampment. With the seige in place, we also lost contact with the outside world. That being so, we had no idea as to the whereabouts of the priest, Terenox
, and my assistant, Walentra
remembered hearing of a large cache of provisions and supplies. It got me to thinking. I remembered hearing of a large stockpile of weapons hidden in the City of Ancients not too far from here.
The Ace of Spades would have probably anticipated a break-through of some sort. The four armies surrounding us were lead by the Shogun of Tyranny, the clone B-2000
, the clone General
, and the clone Spades himself.
Of these armies, the Shogun's in the north were the most disorderly but a good mix of incredibly strong fighters and the back up support of the witches.
To the south were B-2000's troops. They were small in number, but in good formation. They also held a good defensive base and were well regulated.
The clone General mantained the Eastern army. Although of average skill, this army was by far the largest and most menacing.
The clone Spades held the Western army. In spades form, the army was the smallest, but broken down into small formations that were tightly regulated and in perfect form.

Your sex is like R&B!
Is there anything like getting freaky with Barry White's deep, sexy voice purring in your ear and raising up the heat?
For you, sex is about sensuality, passion, and indulging yourself in making sweet, sweet love all night long.
You savour every sensation, and every love-making session is likely to leave you sweaty, exhausted, and spent.
Some might call you hedonistic and self-indulgeant, but they're probably the same ones who have scheduled sex every Tuesday night at ten on the dot, missionary position only--they don't understand the joys and ecstacies of sex the way you do!

|The Last Prophecy
Chapter 7 - Intro - The Long Journey
During the course of the night the White Fist consorts became irritated and insisted that they and the Master of the White Fist, Vernexus
had to leave. (Which is suprising considering the vast amount of drinks and provisions we provided) The White Fist consorts became distraught at the large numbers and the merriment of the Shanatu so they demanded to leave. So far things have been amicable with the White Fist because of the lack of a power struggle, but with the Unified Shanatu Nation
growing in numbers and in strength, dissention crept into the alliance. I am still on good terms with the White Master, but I related to him that if any of his White Fist subordinates got out of line, that I'd be quick to drop them. He agreed. So I guess the alliance is officially over but good relations still exist.
With such close contact with Vernexus, I keep forgetting that the White Fist on the whole are annoying as fuck and piss me off to no end.
In the morning, Ms. Pain
actually stuck around. Also, the Hahirer
had had a rough night and he had imbibed a little too much of the beverages. He was still hurting quite a bit.
The former members of Tetrix
's army escorted him back to his encampment. They were eager to resume their preparations for their relocation to Tesoria. Fags.
I was going to advise one last time that they continue on here in Seraphin City. But, then I decided to just let them go. I was going to request they stay and advise me about fighting this clone of the Ace of Spades, but then I remembered that they were just regular soldiers and knew little of the Duke's strategies.
I began preparations to escort them and to leave my Outpost. I didn't want to leave things as they were, but I needed to in order to ensure their safety. I was pissed about going, but then I realized that Zarnak
may have headed there too. There hasn't been any sign of him for the longest.
So, I began assigning rank and duties to the outpost members in order to keep the Outpost safe. I gave Nezzeret
hand-crafted swords as his sign of authority in my absense. Terenox
and my assistant, Walentra
, left to guard the outer-perimeter as they didn't want to be around the Outpost with Nezzeret in charge. It was unfortunate too. I had made a sword for Terenox as well, but he left before I had a chance to bestow him with it. He usually just rolls with his staff and bare knuckles, but I was giving it to him as a sign of entrance into the Shanatu and a sign of his prestige. Because Terenox was gone, Nezzeret chose Wenero
as his aide.
During all of this Ms. Pain decides to drop a huge load on me.Ms. Pain
I'm ready to date you exclusively now.
In my travels I have encountered many difficulties and I have seen many hard-ships. I'm also ready to be a full on member of Outpost 36 and follow rank and protocol.
Actually, that's not a decision for you to make.
You offered me the position once before. I only assumed that it would still be open.
That was a long time ago. Things have changed. You can't just wander about and cause dissention, only to return and expect things to be the same. When this outpost was under daily attacks and almost lost, you only came when it suited you. Now, that we are strong and heavily guarded, you want the security that it provides.
There was a reason that I was gone so much.
I was with someone else and another tribe. Things went poorly and now I've realized how important you are and how great the Shanatu are.
Wait. You've been with another.....tribe?
Yes, but it never went how I wanted it to.
And now all of a sudden you just want to become part of Outpost 36?
I was hurt. It wasn't just you...it was the Shanatu in general...
Wait....you're a Southerland recruit aren't you?
At first I was angry at the Southerlands inclusion into the Shanatu. I didn't like the alliance as it was, but to actually be joined as one tribe was just too much. I hated you and this tribe. But as I've watched I've realized what you are fighting for. Now I realize how important that decision was and how great the Unified Shanatu Nation is.
That's very flattering, but....
I'm not asking for an officer position in the Shanatu or to be in an exclusive union with you. I'm only saying that I'd like to be considered for both. Current Mood: confused

|The Last Prophecy
Chapter 5 - ContinuedTerenox
stopped for a minute as if reflecting on something. Terenox
Yes, he was my father.
After your father left the Children of Pain, he turned over the manuscripts to the Shanatu Council. No one could figure out how they completed the summoning without your father or the scroll.
Well, they found a way.
Yes. I was there. The Emperor and I were the first to face him when he arrived. When all seemed lost, fortunately the prophecy revealed itself and Crevnerek became Shanatu X and was able to bring down the Aities Man for good.
I wasn't there as I was still being hunted.
I waived off the guards and helped Terenox up. We walked towards my quarters.Creverex
So how was it that they were able to summon the Aities Man without your father or the manuscript?
It was impossible. My father and I burned all the scrolls and his translations. The only one that was left was the one he gave to the Shanatu Council.
We took that scroll and 96'ed it. There's no way that it could have been stolen.
Someone from the Council gave it to them.
That's Impossible. Dark Prax tried to take advantage of the Tribal Tournament but he died shortly afterwards......
I heard them say it when.....
They told me to shut up. They told me that my father was a traitor and that my mother was a whore. They said that I wasn't a Child of Pain and that I was a half-breed and scum.
They used his body for the sacrifice.
I'm sorry to hear that. At least he is finally resting now.
So who is the supposed Council Member?
I don't know. He always kept himself hidden. Dark Leader was just a figure head.
That was hundreds of cycles ago. How is it that you've survived this long?
Well after my father and I turned over the manuscript we were on the run. During that time, he taught me well.
I see. I wonder how this bodes for the Council. I think whoever mentioned a "Council Member" as being the culprit may have been trying to deceive you.
I wondered about that, but I could never figure out how they got a manuscript to perform the summoning. I could think of no other possibilities. As a result, I've been wandering ever since. I couldn't trust the Children of Pain or the Shanatu.
Well, the Shanatu are solely credited as the ones who defeated the Aities Man. I assure you that betrayal will not happen here.
What does my father have to do with all of this? Why is it that I have been invited?
Well, I wasn't anticipating your arrival until later, but since you're here......
I pulled out the manuscript that I had found at the witches encampment.Terenox
What is this?
Some witches gave it to me.
They didn't give you this.
Yeah.....so what is it?
I can't believe they would try this again! They were trying to summon Zaranatok!
Wow. Lord Chain's big brother. I had so forgotten about him.
The spirits have been restless for a long time. Dark forces have been stirring them ever since the new Pharaoh came into the scene.
(Dammit...It always comes back to Zarnak)
Nothing....Any ideas of what this is?
I showed him the two halves of the flute that I had found.Terenox
This is the legendary witch flute that is said to have the power to kill the mighty El Horno! That must have been quite a fortress to house such artifacts!
Actually, it was relatively unguarded. I don't think that they had anticipated an attack or an alliance between the Shanatu and the Temple of the Tiger Mistress.
You two have an alliance?
Well...maybe... I don't know. Either way, we can't allow this union between The Tyranny and the Witches.
We must stop this deadly alliance.
Would you like to join us in this cause?
Strange that we should meet today.
Tomorrow is the Shanatu holiday.
(Dammit, I need to watch the stars closer)
Wow. So it is. I can't believe that I have forgotten about it over the years.
Have you also forgotten that you and the new Pharaoh were both crowned on that day as well?
That's right. I've been so stressed with dealing with everything that I haven't noticed the calender.
I thought that that was the reason for my invitation. I had no idea of what was going on. Too bad there isn't a celebration. I haven't been to a Shanatu holiday in so long...
Well, maybe it would be good for the morale of the troops. Besides, I know two Shanatu that could use some "Cleaning duties."
Chapter 6 - Holiday Treat
I hosted the party within the compound. I sent my blue falchon to deliver an invitation to The Master of the White Fist
but I didnt' hear back from him. I also went to the Temple of the Tiger Mistress, Valerna
to invite her. Unfortunately, I didn't hear from her either. I felt like an ass.
I had my lookouts on full patrol. Terenox
even placed a few sentry spells around the compound so that we couldn't be taken by surpise again. Having a former priest around may not be such a bad thing afterall. Even if he is a former Child of Pain
, I guess he has enough Shanatu
in him to compensate.
I put the lookouts on revolving shifts so that everyone could enjoy the party. Everyone that is, except for Nezzeret
who were on K.P. the whole time.
The rest of the troops seemed to be having a good time including Terenox who seemed to have taken an interest to my apprentice, Walentra
. One of my guards came to me and told me that a guest had arrived with an invitation and wished to see me privately. My heart skipped a beat. I could only guess that it was Valerna.
I went to my private courtyard behind my quarters. The schematics for the Sword of Dimentia
hung on the wall. The guards escorted a woman wearing the robes of the Temple of the Tiger Mistress. They guards left and I went towards her.
She lowered her hood. I was taken back. It was Valerna's servant that we had rescued the day before.Temple Maiden
Its nice to see you again.
Uh... it's nice to see you, too. How is your Lady?
She's good. You know how she is....always from one crush to another.
I wanted to thank you for your rescue yesterday. It was very brave.
No problem. It wasn't anything really....
No really, thank you. You were very courageous and gentlemanly.
I ah... was just doing what came naturally.
Awww. You're humble and bashful too. You're also very attractive.
Thank you for my cloak, too.
Her comment had her desired effect. My mind immediately went back to seeing her lying nude on the table. I tried not to think about it but my head was kind of spinning.Creverex
Err.....its really hot for this time of year isn't it?
I feel wonderful.
That's uh... that's great. I guess.
You don't even know my name do you?
No, we haven't exactly been formally introduced.
(I was finally glad to have an answer that didn't require me squirming)
I'll not forget it. I'm...
Creverex... I know who you are.
Well, Creverex, you are incredibly cute. I have to get back to the Temple, but I'm sure that I'll see you again.
Zalantra left and I stood there for awhile afterwards. Did the witches hit me with an 'Idiot Spell' the other day? Dammit, I can't even think straight. So, obviously, Zalantra likes me, but was she telling the truth about Valerna? Is Valerna really like that or was Zalantra just telling me that because she likes me? Did Valerna even get the invitation for tonight? She obviously had to know about it, though. Zalantra does have a great figure. Dammit. I shouldn't be thinking like that. She did say that I was 'attractive' too, didn't she? So can I trust her? Is she really trying to warn me about Valerna or is she just trying to get my attention?Creverex
Goddammit! I'm a fucking Pharaoh! I'm the Shanatu Executioner and I've received four purple triangles! I've defeated thousands of foes and conquered entire nations! I've read countless texts and scrolls of ancient history and lore! I've out-strategized and won seemingly hopeless battles when I was seriously outnumbered!
So why the hell can't I figure out women?!?
I finally came to the conclusion that I should just follow my own advice and just avoid getting involved with anyone right now. I figured that I should just concentrate on matters at hand and continue my operations against the Alliance. My head finally cleared a bit and I endeavoured to just enjoy the night and have fun with the troops.
I ended up having a great time and there were no disturbances during the night of celebration. There were many toasts and speaches and everyone had a good time. Even Wenero and Nezzeret were able to enjoy things for a little while.
I was sitting on my throne at the head of the Outpost. My thoughts were on the party and of having good friends. I started to get even optimistic about my chances against the Alliance. It dawned on me that I had inadvertantly saved the Shanatu, yesterday. Had Zaranatok
actually been summoned without Lord Chain
alive, we could have all been destroyed. Also, Zarnak should be here soon. Terenox might prove to be a valuable addition. Wenero is becomming a good hunter and fighter. Nezzeret is on kitchen duty. Things were good.
Then I saw Ms. Pain
. She looked freakin' hot. She had her short black hair pinned back. She was wearing a black sleaveless top and a short plaid skirt. She was wearing high boots and tight white stockings that came up to her mid thigh.
She walked over towards me. I was sitting on my throne with my left hand at my chin and my right hand on my thigh as I normally do. Ms. Pain put one arm around my right shoulder and sat down on my right hand and straddled my knee.Ms. Pain
I'm not wearing any panties....
She stood up and walked over towards my quarters. When she got to my door she turned around and said,Ms. Pain
Thought you'd like to know....

|The Last Prophecy
Chapter 5 - The Big Brawl
When I got back to my compound, I noticed a ruckus going on inside. The guards seemed to be distracted by a disturbance from within. I rushed to see what the comotion was.
I came in to see Nezzeret
and my apprentice, Walentra
, engaged in an 'altercation.' Walentra
What did you guys think you were doing?!?
Hey I wasn't the one who even started it!
We were just training that's all!
Don't pass off you guys fooling around as training!
Well, technically it is training. We are developing our skills to....
Don't even say that! You were screwing around and wrecking everything as usual!
What in the Hell is going on?!?
Walentra is in the reading phase of her apprenticeship. She spends most of her time reading and learning the Shanatu texts so she can begin her combat training. So, it was unusual that any disturbances much less any arguments would be coming from her quarters.Walentra
I was trying to get some work done and this tiger comes bursting into my quarters and wrecked my entire room!
I was just hunting Nezzeret. I didn't mean anything by it.
Yeah, fool, we were just practicing. Its just like training!
Don't even try that! That tiger is evil!
Waitaminute. Why the hell was Wenero hunting Nezzeret in your room in the first place?
That's where you were hiding?!?
Well, I wasn't hiding there, I was just trying to get a better position on Wenero. I wasn't going to actually....
You were enticing this?!?
So what actually happened?
I was reading my scrolls as I should be and I see Wenero creeping into my room! I asked what he was doing but he ignored me and then began rampaging through my things!
I wasn't really thinking about it. I just smelled Nezzeret and I wanted to catch him by surprise. I dunno, I guess instinct took over and I charged.
Did you try to stop him?
No, I wanted to see what all he was going to do! He should be thrown out of here! He's not my responsibility! The two of them have been wrecking things ever since he got here!
Godammit! He's just a cub he doesn't know any better. You should have just stopped him. You knew that he was on the prowl!
See? It could have easily been avoided.
Don't start! You shouldn't have been there either!
Right then a stranger with a black cloak and light blue robes shows up.Stranger
Hey, I don't mean to be prying or anything but.....
What the...!?! Who is this?
Oh hey, that's Terenox Keloni. He's that guy that I was telling you about.
Well, I got a invitation and showed your guards. They.....
Who sent an open invitation for you to enter this outpost?
I've got it right here.
That's an official seal! Who the fuck used my seal?
Well, we had already talked about it, so I went ahead and sent the invite. You're not pissed are you?
We last left on foul terms and now I see that you're still doing this crap!?! You've brought me into a trap with this bogus invitation and now you're harrassing this young woman!?!
Terenox folded his sleeves back. Wenero sensed his anger and preemptively attacked him. Terenox was taken a little off-guard as his attention was solely on Nezzeret. After a split second struggle, he threw Wenero behind him and leaped after Nezzeret. Nezzeret dodged out of the way. Wenero rolled and got up to lunge at Terenox again. Walentra grabbed him from behind and began to wrestle him to the ground.
The whole thing ended up being one big brawl. I shouted for the guards to seize all of them. The guards came rushing. The hunt had taken Wenero and he was lashing to and fro with Walentra grabbing him tightly by the neck. Nezzeret tried to stop Terenox. Terenox thought that Nezzeret was trying to capture him, so Terenox began fighting fiercely to avoid capture.
Eventually with enough guards and enough mayhem they were all finally separated.
I went over to Terenox. Everyone else was somewhat responsible so I wasn't as concerned with them. Terenox had come in on seemingly friendly terms and got pulled into this huge ordeal. I guess that it's a good thing, because otherwise, I might have been much more cold with a former member of the Children of Pain
. The guards were holding him but not tightly as he was much more relaxed now. As I approached him, I suddenly realized....Creverex
Now I remember. You said your name was Keloni. I knew an Orizan Keloni once. We met in Nessengar, a great summoner and a friend. He was to summon the Aities Man and his legions. With him the Children of Pain hoped to create an invincible army. He realized the danger of this and tried to steal the scrolls of summoning. Tell me. Could he be your father?

Chapter 4 - ConclusionValerna
threw one of the witches into a corner. I noticed one of the witches was standing back to cast a spell. I rushed her and gave her the serious Kung FU! foot. She went down and I rushed the last one. Valerna delivered a strong punch to her gut and I came crashing in with a clothesline to the back of her head. She crumbled like a leaf. Creverex
Well right the fuck on!
Yeah, that did kick some ass.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Valerna went over and untied her servant from the sacrificial table. I went over and grabbed one of the hooded capes lying around. I threw it over her to give her some cover. I tried not to notice, but she did have an excellent figure. She smiled and covered herself with the cape and cowl.Valerna
Cool, well thanks for your help.
No problem. Anytime.
Well, I'm going to head back to my temple.
Cool. Would you like some company?
Uh...its not that far away. See ya.
She left with that and I kind of stood there looking and feeling stupid. I was hoping for even a 'look back' from her but there was none. Maybe I had just misinterpreted everything. Maybe I just got used. Maybe its just that I'm a dumbass when it comes to these things. Maybe.....Witch in the corner
The fucking witch in the corner had been conjuring a spell while I was contemplating my stupidity. With her final words she flicked some wet stuff onto me and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
After I was done coughing, I searched around but there was no trace of her. I kept wondering when something was going to change or happen to me, but I didn't feel any different. That is until I went back to thinking about Valerna and remembering what an ass I was.
I looked around the encampment but found nothing but witch ornaments and medallions. As I was about to leave I decided to check around the where the witches were doing their summoning. I turned over the table that Valerna's servant was tied to. I found a weird manuscript and a broken flute. I determined that I should keep both of these just in case they could come in handy.
I went back to my Outpost in a lot lower spirits than I had left. I didn't understand it, either. I'd totally kicked ass with a beautiful woman who kicked ass. We'd destroyed an encampment of witches. We saved a damsel in distress. So why did I still feel like crap? Current Mood: confused

|Uh.... I'm going the other way actually
I AM 10% GOTH!
I wanna be a GOTH. But I'm not. Smoking cloves and too much eyeliner a goth does not make. I'll go home and take your Cure CD's with me.

Chapter 4 - Shanatu Romance
I decided that looking up this Terenox
character might be a good idea. In fact he sounds almost familiar. Once some of this is settled I'll review some of the old scrolls to see if I can find anything.
Before we could go I wanted to eliminate the Witches outpost that was troubling the Tiger Mistress, Valerna
's, Temple. A good three pronged attack. We could lessen the witches power while also adding an ally....and yes, I'd get to see the Tiger Mistress again. So, I figured that we should begin that mission first.Nezzeret
arranged the meeting. I gave orders to Wenero
to keep a look-out for the witches. I ordered the guards to keep a look-out for Wenero so he doesn't do anything stupid.
Once all the preparations were set, I left with Nezzeret to the Temple of the Tiger Mistress. Once we got there her assistance announced our arrival. Valerna ascended down the stairs. Nezzeret took one look at my face and saw that I was totally enamored with Valerna. Valerna
You guys ready to go?
Uh, actually, I've got to go and watch Wenero. The outpost needs constant surveillance these days and we've got to be prepared for a counter-assault.
Oh Okay. See you.
After Nezzeret left, Valerna lead me to where the witches encampment was. I began my own assessment of the compound and then asked Valerna what she would suggest. She suggested that with the two of us, that we could take a head on assault and if we were quick about it, then we could eliminate the guards without alerting the rest of the coven and then burst in and catch them with a surprise attack.
Amazingly, that was exactly what I was thinking, but I was unsure if Valerna was that adept at combat. Her assuredness was quite attractive. As I was looking at her admiring her ability, confidence, and appearance, she further increased my attraction.Valerna
Which one of those witches do you think is the hottest?
uh.. the... uh.... the one on the far right in the stilettos.
Wow...you have the same taste in women.... That's attractive.
At this point I'm thinking, "Holy Shit, you think your
attracted. My attraction to you just went through the fucking roof!" But what came out was, Creverex
So... do you want to take her then?
I was thinking that we just rush in from the sides and catch the four of them in a pincer. So, yeah I guess I'll start with her and then we'll crush them in the middle.
*God, I think I'm in Love*
Okay, then I guess I'll go ahead and approach from the left.
I crept around to ensure that our attack was a surprise. I was just beginning to realize that we hadn't decided on a signal to coordinate the attack when the signal became quite apparent.BOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM!!!!
Unoxthius Glaed patha Asxinos!
I almost failed to attack due to my awe. The Tiger Mistress spoke the foreign language of Threntaria. The only reason that I knew what it was was because Daxantra and I used to muddle through the language when we didn't want to be overheard. We also used it as our 'romance language'. It was apparently Valerna's native tongue.
But, like I said, I almost
failed to attack. I quickly snapped out of my daze and rushed towards the witch on the right. She had her back turned to me to face the rushing threat that was Valerna. I charged towards the witch and bum rushed her from behind. She went flying so far she actually tumbled into the middle witch and they both slammed into the witches that were being attacked by Valerna.
We made short work of the witches and I felt a sense of security. No matter what else happens, one thing that I know for sure is that these particular witches wouldn't bother us again.
I took a lingering glance at Valerna and she looked at me. I brushed a strand of her hair out of her face and behind her ear. She smiled and then nodded towards the downstairs where the rest of the witches were.
We went side by side down the stairs. We were quickly dispatching these witches as we moved. We even started making a game of it by seeing how we could do it. Valerna would whisper something and when the witch would come closer to hear what the sound was, she'd come slicing down with her blade. I'd tap one on the shoulder and when she looked around I'd continue turning her head until it snapped or one time I actually sent ones head into the wall afterwards.
We finally reached the very bottom of the dwelling where we found 5 witches surrounding the cauldron and a naked woman sacrifice who was tied to the platform. Valerna let out a quick gasp. Apparently, the sacrifice was one of her servants.
The head witch continued her chanting.Head Witch
Koyo Navacte, Creto Savas, Novo Neanto, Deacto Navasa cekte devos navas yen.
The sacrifice's eyes rolled back into her head. The head witch raised her dagger to prepare to strike.
I leaped forward onto the sacrificial table tipping it over. As it tipped I held onto the would-be sacrifice and rolled so that she wouldn't be crushed by the fall. I assumed that Valerna would take advantage of my distraction. I wasn't disappointed. No sooner had I pulled the girl to relative safety, the Tiger Mistress was plowing into the witches.
Valerna was doing well, but there were four highly trained witches against her. The fifth one had come behind me and grabbed me. She had wrapped herself around my back and was coming down to stab me in the chest with her dagger. I caught her hand before the blade had pierced my chest. She was clawing at my face with one hand and still trying to stab me with the other. I ran backwards and smashed her against the wall. I used the bounce momentum to flip her over my head and smashed her back into my knee.
That witch was done for. I leaped in to help Valerna.

Chapter 4 -IntroPones
left and I began Wenero
's training. He and Nezzeret
have taken to each other and are actively destroying just as much shit as they are contributing. Just the other day, they were sparring and the two of them burst through the barracks and wrecked everyone's beds. The other warriors weren't too pleased.
I decided to try and keep them separated as much as possible. I told Nezzeret to get ready for another patrol. I left Wenero with strict instructions to survey the terrain and get familiarized with the local surroundings.
Nezzeret and I left to patrol and discuss additional recruits. Creverex
You mentioned knowing a couple more people as possible recruits for the Shanatu. I'd like to meet them and get a new team ready.
Dang Crevy. This whole thing has got you all riled up. Why are you so worked up about this? We've managed to win every engagement so far.
The more I think about this situation the more disturbed I become. Not only are we facing this onslaught of the Tyranny but they are teamed up with the Witches. And the witches have had enough time to mold their clay and form clones of B-2000, the Duke of Spades, and the General. With the General to lead their troops, the Ace of Spades to develop the strategy and B-2000 and the Shogun of Tyranny on the front lines, we don't stand a chance.
So it's the Shogun, and a handful of old clones. What's the deal? So the "General" is just going to come out rip up his clothes and lick our heads? What's so scary about that?
The General...the REAL General is unlike anyone that you've ever faced and for your sake I hope you never do.
Well, at least you already took out that big fucker.
I saw you jab his eyes out!
Those clones...they're not like you and me. You've got to cut their heads off.
So who's the next recruit?
His name's Tenerox. His father used to be a Priest for the Children of Pain.....
I have no use for priests!
Don't worry! Jeez! His father was a priest and Terenox was his assistant. Well, the Children of Pain tried to force his father to summon some creature to turn the balance in their favor. He realized the danger of this and tried to flee. They captured him and killed him but not before he got word to Terenox about the situation. Terenox was able to get his father's notes and spells and leave before the Children of Pain could find him. Since, he's wandered the lands and looked for ways to avenge his father and improve his skills.
Hmmm..... He could prove useful after all...
Yeah, just talk to him and he may be all about signing up.
Don't you know him?
Uh...yeah, but uh... he may not want to talk to me.
Ha! I guess he knows you like I know you.
