A Party For Spring (The Rise of Curulan)

Reply A Party for spring.…

Midway was over joyed that DSPY has allowed her party to happen.
Winter was slowly giving ground to spring around the caste and the wild flowers were starting to bloom. When Midway approached the commons she was glad to see that people stared arriving. As she looked over those gathered she saw a few new faces, and a some that she has know since she first joined Titan so long ago. This was the first party the Titan has seen this time of year.
As she walked the room she over heard the planing of countless ideas that need to be passed by her love DSPY before they would ever be able to start acting on there plans.
Midway was glad to see the more people were slowly join in the party, but she had yet to see her sister Lemac or even Doggy_Style_PY anywhere in the crowd. Hoping Midway disappears to see if she can find either one of them.

*The man walks through the party, greeting his friends. He mills around until he finds Midway.*
Midway? I haven't seen you in ages. You're usually not around the Palace. How have you been?

As Midway roamed around the party looking for Lemac or DSPY she paused to talk to one of her old friends. Suddenly out of know where a voice comes at her from behind, causing her to jump and nearly spilling her drink.
Careful not to spill her drink as she turns around to yell at the person who made her jump, "Didn't your mother ever tell you to make more noise when approaching a person from behind? Oh its you Curulan, I am sorry for that, I have just been a little preoccupied that is all. But yes most of the time I am back at the family estate tending to matters there. I try to get back here often, but sadly when I am here I spend most of my time with DSPY, and the rest with Lemac. That's beside the point, I have been well. This party is just what the clan needs I really hope is goes over well with the others. But how are you doing, did you get to finish you talk with DSPY?"

Curulan
Re: A Party for spring.…

The man smiles slightly.
"I apologize for that. It's hard for me to abandon my old habits. Alas, I never got a response. He has been very busy and other things were more crucial at the time. But hopefully things won't turn out as badly as I feared."

In a corner to the side a young red-haired woman is standing observing the proceedings intently. She is obviously uncomfortable here and yearns to be outside. She stands with her arms crossed leaned against a pillar of the ball-room. Next to the woman stands a young man with blond hair slowly sipping from a beverage. The woman turns to the man and says:
"Elias, will you do me a favor by taking a look in the tavern to see if Kiraco has been found yet." The man looks at the woman in adoration and replies: "Yes Mistress." and wanders of in the direction of the tavern.

Dranon quietly slips in among the guests, flitting through the crowd to reach a darkened corner off to the side of all the happenings. He solemnly studies the scene for some time. Deciding that he lost his pursuers in the woods, he squats down on his heels and digs through his pack, bringing forth a bottle of Silvanesti wine. He deftly uncorks the bottle and fills his mug. Quickly he replaces the cork on the bottle and stows it away into his pack. He remains squatting in the corner, sipping at his drink, seemingly unnoticed by the party goers. He settles down to a seat on the floor and watches the proceedings with interest, making sure to keep his eyes on the entrance.

- A figure measuring only 4 inches in height and adorned with butterfly-wings comes fluttering into the ballroom. People who have met this kind of being before can recognize the build of a faerie. Inside the room he gains some height flutters over the crowd below and settles down on the chandelier while carefully avoiding the candlesticks.
On the chandelier he stands for a while peering around the room before taking to the air again in the direction of the punch-bowl. He lands on the edge of the bowl and takes a small wooden bowl out of his belt-pouch, dips it into punch and sits down facing the ballroom while sipping from the punch with great delight.

Throrin steps out of the shadows of the Palace, He has been busy exploring his new home, and recognizes instantly that something is afoot. He walks into the ballroom and finds a full blown party going on. Hurriedly he grabs a drink and starts striking up conversations with the nearby party goers. Not seeing anyone he recognizes he returns to drinking off in his corner.

Re: A Party for spring.…
The man sees that his conversation with Midway isn't going very far as it is, so he changes the subject. "Anyway, about your sister: Lemac. I haven't seen her lately either. How is she doing?"

Dranon2001
Reply Re: A Party for spring.…

Peering about intently Dranon notices a man dressed in the maroon cloaks of the Utem guards. Quickly he stows his belongings in his pack and searches frantically for the nearest exit. Seeing one far across the way trough the crowds, he makes a go for it. Dashing in among the people he does his best to avoid jostling anyone, so as not to draw the attention of his pursuers. The guards are too keen however, and spot him as he is trying to make his escape. Ever fleet of foot Dranon dashes out the exit and turns, throwing an orb of darkness only a couple of feet outside the exit. The guards rushing towards are blocked out momentarily as he makes good his escape. Unbeknownst to Dranon, his cowl fell away from his face during the chase, and one of the nearby peasants points and him and screams something in the common tongue. He quickly pulls his cowl back over his features, and makes for the woods. "They act as though they have never seen a dark elf before," he mutters, as he races through the woods.

WallyBasher, having not been inside the walls of the Titan fortress for a long time, since the winter started. Finally has been able to get out and once again and he missed seeing his friends in Titan. So once again, on the back of his donkey he has made his way to the Titan fortress.
As he slowly get closer to the gate of the fortress, he can hear the music playing, and the sounds of a large gathering... a party maybe. Quickly he dismounts his donkey, and heads towards where all the merriment and laughter is coming from, and as he passes thru one of the large portals into the Titan fortress... all of his senses are suddenly ALIVE!! there progressing in front of his was a party the like of, he has never seen, so many people, so much happiness and fun... Quickly he rushed down, to join in the festivities, and hoped to bump into someone that he knew.

Re: A Party for spring.…

*The red-haired woman concentrates and transforms into a black cat and rushes along the wall towards the same exit the dark elf has used, hoping to overtake him* "Meow?"

Reply A Dark Elf in the midst

Throrin looks around, startled, a cowled figure dashes for the door with several guards just behind him. But suddenly the man's cowl falls off, revealing his face, He is a Dark Elf, but how did he get here? More importantly, WHERE does this man come from. He dashes out before Throrin can catch him, but before he is out of earshot, Throrin lays a Spell of Searching upon him, hoping that he can track this man down later. After the excitement is passed, he turns to Curulan. "I don't suppose you saw his face did you?" Throrin whispers as he pulls Curulan aside. "He was a Dark Elf, like me. I don't understand though...most Dark Elves were murdered when Undead Legion fell, unless there was a colony somewhere where the Legion didn't know about, I had always assumed that I was part of an almost extinct race. I see now that Dark Elves were spread more then we thought. I'm going to find him, and see if I can approach this man to see where he comes from, I'll be sorry to miss this party, but this is far more important."
Turning to leave, Throrin spots Midway, Lemac's younger sister, Throrin approaches her and introduces himself. "Hello m'lady, I've been looking for your sister, I wish to speak to her about the Library she runs. Please tell her to find me once I get back, I think I need to have a word with our mysterious guest."
With that, Throrin is gone, searching for one of his kind and possibly an old friend who survived his past.

GuyverNight
umm…

LordGuyver walks in the party, looks the place over and ponders if he should stay or go. "hmm... I do believe I will go. Anyway I have an assassination to plan." Guyver thought aloud. With that Guyver walks back into the corridor he came from.

Gerasimos
Reply Party

Gerasimos looked around in merriment. Humans, elves, even a dark elf? 'Well, this is a strange collection of people if ever there was one...' Then his eyes spot the fairy. A look of sheer amazement comes to the elf's face as he looks at the small creature. Taking a drink he moves toward the fairy. He signs to the fairy trying to get his attention over the noise. "I have seen many many strange things today, but a fairy, here???" he thought. A friendly smile adorned the elf's face.

Midway Samporna
Reply Answers to questions…

Midway was getting swamped by her fellow clan member all asking were either Doggy and Lemac where.
To Curulan: "Well she is fine as well, she has been busy with the library and catching up making sure all the new books a put in there proper places."
Suddenly with out any warning Throrin pulls Curulan away and exchanges words.
To Throrin: "I have yet to see my sister around yet. But I am sure that we will not miss her entrance, she likes to make big entrances and all. She is the Clans Head Courtesan after all."
To both: "If you'll excuse me I need a little personal matter that needs tending to." With that Midway is disappears in to the crowd, she is then seen running off in the direction of her and Doggy's quarters.

Curulan wonders around, waiting for Lemac to join.

DSPY
The Arrival...…

The trumpets begin to sing as DSPY can be seen entering through the entrance above the stairs. Everyone present hears the trumpets begin and look up to see DSPY and his lady Midway at his arm. DSPY can be seen wearing his black dress uniform with gold trim around the lapels, and across the bottom of his jacket. He is also wearing black pants with a gold stripe down the middle of the outer seam of both pant legs. He also has on a pair of glossy dress black shoes. Midways hand can be seen attached to his black sleeve on his jacket followed by white gloves at his hands.
They begin to walk down the stairs both walking slow to let the people watch them enter and to make sure everyone knows DSPY is with the prettiest lady in the whole place. Both of their faces seem to have a glow of finding love that was thought to be lost.
As they reach the bottom of the stairs, the crowd disperses leaving them a path to travel through. DSPY walks many shaking the hands of the warriors and others alike. All the warriors are dressed in their best which is something DSPY expects at such a formal occasion as this. They continue to travel down the path and the trumpets stop playing, but are soon followed by a small band which is playing slow dance music. When the two reach the middle of the room, the crowd seems to close in on them and without noticing anyone else, DSPY looks at Midway and says, "M'lady would you have this dance with me?" She gladly accepts and the two begin to dance. They dance throughout the whole instrumental song and when it is done they gently kiss each other and embrace.
Then in the corner of his eye DSPY sees a friend he has not seen in a long time. It seems Wally has come to visit the Titan Palace. DSPY begins to move towards Wally, but can't help but notice the gold in the etched into the ceiling and the pure white linens that hang from the ceiling and continue down until they touch the floor. And the soft glow the lights upon the wall give off. But making haste, he moves towards Wally. Upon reaching Wally, he introduces him to Midway and asks how his life is faring since he has not seen him in some time.

Reply Re: The Arrival...…
- The tiny person looks up from his bowl of punch and looks up at Gerasimos. "Oh....hi, faeries, where?" "Who me?? No...I am not a faerie...I am a Titan !"
- The small man rummages around in his belt-pouch again and withdraws an important looking scroll. You have no trouble recognizing a Grant to Join since you have similar one. This one is signed by both Doggy_Style_PY and Eisirt. "You see...Eisirt, that's me...Titan...here at the top."
- Eisirt extends a small right hand offering it to Gerasimos to shake.

Gerasimos
Reply Newcomers

Gerasimos takes the tiny hand and shakes it lightly. His smile broadens even more. "Well, I'm a new-kid-on-the-block myself. .I've only been here for about two days... And, since we're at the Titan party, it figures you're a Titan first and foremost... Well, I'm sorry, I forgot my manners. I am Marquis Gerasimos of Tuarhievel. Forget the former and latter part, it is just for reference purposes . Absolutely enchanted to meet you, Elsirt. I was looking to meet the other Titans and I figured there could be no better place or time for socializing…"
The elf pauses for a second, takes a sip from his drink.
"So, how long since you joined? And, how did you decide to be a Titan, anyway?"
Gerasimos turns around to the sound of trumpets. He raises an eyelid spotting the various important-looking people entering.
"So, who are these, Elsirt?" he asks, then spots the insignia's and the medals. "Hmmm... The leader of the clan, and members of the Council. What do you think? Maybe we could try to steal a little of their time to introduce ourselves?"

Curulan
Re: Newcomers

The man walks around the party – giving up his search for Lemac for the time being – in hopes to meet some the newer members of Titan he has yet to meet. As Captain of the Guards, it would do him well to know his fellow members by face.

Reply Re: Newcomers

Throrin walks in through the doors, just in time to see DSPY's grand entrance, his meeting with the other Dark Elf went well, and his smile only broadens at the hundreds of people drinking and dancing the night away. Throrin slowly takes a sip of his Mead and walks around, introducing himself to everyone he has not already met. As the hours wane, he takes his drink to one of the tables at the side and watches the party with a soft smile creasing a face that has not had much reason to smile lately.

Courtesan Lemac
The Courtesan arrives.…
Lemac was surprised by the large number of people gathered in the ballroom of the castle to celebrate the coming of spring party which was planed by her sister Midway. Lemac was not wearing her usual maroon and green dress for the occasion, she was wearing only a white dress and her red rose, she was also carrying her weapons and armor.
When she reached the top of the stairs that led down to the ballroom she stopped in full view of all that was gathered and threw her weapons and armor down the stairs, the noise of there descent down caught the full attention of the crowd. They all looked up at Lemac standing at the top of the stairs, a hush fell over the room. "Looking down these stairs, the ground a million miles from me. I can see leaping from this ledge, A leap of faith is all I ask to remove myself from all that used to be, the fall to set me free. As the candles burn each night a twisted face in the mirror is all I can see. My sight is blinded by his darkness, it doesn't mean a thing to me. Turning from these halls, I have found this perfect little place for me."
She removed a dagger that was being used to hold her hair up. As her long flowing red hair fell over her shoulders she plunged the dagger into her chest. She stood there with her own blood running down her chest and on her hands, she walked to the railing at the top of the stairs, she removed the dagger the bloody blade was held in full view. "Now here I am for all to see, my life pouring out of me. It's too late to drown in all my doubt, too much too late to sort things out."
She then fell helplessly over the railing and descended to floor of the ballroom below. But as a few from the crowd rushed forward to save her from landing on the polished stone floor of the ballroom, she vanished from the room. All that was left was the bloody dress she was wearing and the bloody dagger, both fell helpless to the floor of the ballroom. Her weapons and armor vanished along with her.

Curulan
Re: The Courtesan arrives.…

The man turns around after hearing the metal hitting the floor. As he sees Lemac plunging the dagger into her chest, he breaks one of his own rules and teleported to the stairwell, hoping to catch her. Before she lands, however, she disappears, and only her dress drifts down in front of him.
He thinks about this for a moment, then mutters, "Why did this have to happen now? I'm nowhere near ready to handle this yet." He sits down on the bottom stair and starts to ponder where to go from here.

Midway Samporna
Reply Re: The Courtesan arrives.…

Midway was stunned, her sister didn't make any sense. Why did she do this, where did she go. She pushed her way threw the crowd where Lemacs' dress and dagger landed holding them close to her she cried over the loss of her sister. It was to much to bare, she couldn't take losing her last living family member. She was the last of the Samporna family now. As she cried, she desperately wanted be with her sister again.
She stood up holding both dagger and dress, her hands covered in her sisters blood. Mindlessly she walked up the stairs, paying no notice to Curulan. As she reached the place where her sister fell over the rail, she planed to fall over the rail hoping that what happened to Lemac would happen to her. But as she climbed over the rail a loving hand fell upon her shoulder, preventing her from falling and keeping her safe.

DSPY
Re: The Courtesan arrives.…

DSPY places a hand on Midway's shoulder just before she plunges to her death. DSPY pulls her away from the balcony and holds her close to him. The blood begins to gather on both of them, but that is the last thing on his mind.
Such a horror has just happened and DSPY does not know of a single way to make whats wrong right. A true test of faith and a true test of love can be foreseen in the future and DSPY begins to shake for he is not sure he can handle such a test. Being a veteran of many battles, he has never had to deal with emotions just dead bodies. But this is on another level unfamiliar to DSPY.
All he can do is hold Midway and whisper to her that everything is alright, but deep down inside DSPY knows no more than anyone else present.
He begins to lead her to their chambers. Taking one last look at the scene, he stills sees the people staring at the blank area that should have been Lemac's resting place. DSPY motions to Curulan his Colonel of Palace Defenses and orders him to take care of this for he has matters of the heart to take care of. With that DSPY leaves the ballroom and heads for the chambers.

Curulan
Re: The Courtesan arrives.…

The man turns to the crowd after being given his order. With a pained expression on his face, he changes his voice so that it can be heard in all corners of the hall. "Fellow Titans and allies, I'm sorry, but we will have to postpone the party for now while we investigate this. We are not dealing with a common suicide, I fear. Please leave in an orderly manner. Do not worry; I will not allow this to be the end of our friend, if at all possible." With that, he summons the guards to assist the departure of the guests.

Gerasimos
Reply Re: The Courtesan arrives

Gerasimos just stood there staring stunned as the beautiful woman with the red plunged the dagger into her chest. Then, failing miserably to reach the bottom of the balcony, he tried to get his bearings. The events that followed made him even more amazed, but then something inside him awoke. 'I had not thought that strange events would follow me here, I was merely planning for a vacation. But if these people need help, I am not going to stand here gawking like a fool'. Then, in a determined pace and as Lord Curulan was asking people to leave the place, he approached him.
"My Lord, I see by your insignia that you are a member of the High Council. I understand that it is by no means the place or the time for introductions, but I am Marquis Gerasimos, and I have been here for very little. But I can see that something truly strange has happened here, and I can also see that you have no more clue than I about what it is. So I would like to offer my help to you, be it a sword arm, a magical skill that I posses, an investigation, an ear to listen to a soul's problems. Whatever you may need."
The elf then walks a little farther to allow Lord Curulan room for his work, whatever it may be.

Eisirt
Reply Re: The Courtesan arrives.…

- Eisirt looks at the scene just played before his eyes and shrugs indifferently, then comments to Gerasimos "I sure hope that wasn't someone important...come let's talk outside."
- Eisirt glares at Gerasimos. "And my name is Eisirt, not Elsirt...and I hail from the lands of Faylinn."
- Eisirt drinks out the last bit of punch from his bowl, stashes it in his belt-pouch and flutters towards the door. While softly muttering to himself. "Boy, I sure hope that was a magic trick...that lady was way too pretty to die like that."
-Eisirt deftly evades the chandelier and flies outside.

Reply A suicide?

Throrin watches from a distance...A young, beautiful lady, pulling a knife slowly from her hair, prepares to stab herself, Throrin looks up in surprise as she raises the blade. He cannot hear her words, but he is sure on what she plans to do...He immediately prepares a teleportation spell, trying to reach her before she used the knife...but Throrin is too late...her hands and chest bloody, she approaches the balcony, right as he disappears to reappear by her side, she falls to the marble floor...But suddenly she disappears a few feet from the ground. Throrin looks down to see her beautiful dress fall to the floor in a bloody heap...Slowly..Throrin walks down the stairs, face grim with agony..He looks to Midway, her face full of sorrow as she climbs the stairs...DSPY following behind her..He sits next to Curulan and ponders what to do next
He whispers "Its almost as if...." He trails off, unable t continue, Curulan is issued an order by a DSPY, and the guards are summoned to usher the guests out...Needing no second bidding, Throrin walks slowly towards the exit, unable to think of anything better to do then get very very drunk.
He walks to the local bar, drops a heap of money on the table. "Bartender, something has happened tonight, anyone that comes in wearing a symbol of Titan are covered by that *he points to the money*...if you need more, ask." Throrin orders the strongest ale on tap and finds a corner to search through his misery.

Andrew Staff
Re: Newcomers

After joining the party for a few minutes Andrew began to feel uncomfortable, he noted that it seemed he was the only one carrying a sword or any weapon for that matter, he straightened Hywelbane across his back, he became more relaxed as DSPY had finished blowing his own horn,( making his entrance).
He walked through the crowd mingling for a few moments then stopped to talk with an old friend, the next thing he new there was some commotion and everyone was looking and pointing to the top of the stair case. There at the top he saw Lemac the fiery redhead he had grown quite fond of even though he never was able to admit it to himself…
He smiled a slight smile at her not know the grave series of events that were about to unfold. He was too far back in the crowd to hear what she was saying, he felt a sudden chill run down his spine, he glanced up at Lemac once more just in time to see her fall over the banister. It took a full three seconds for him to realize what had happened, and as soon as he did he rushed over to the scene, because of the surge of people fleeing Andrew was only able to within a few feet. As his eyes prepared for the horrid sight of Lemac's body on the ground, the only thing he was was her blood soaked clothing and a dagger. He followed the wave of people flooding the doors and ventured outside trying to find answers to this enigma…

Cadbury66
Re: Newcomers

WallyBasher was standing there, enjoying the fanfare and the grand entrance of his good friend, DSPY, and his lady.. *sorry never met Midway before*. Then as they both ascend the stairs, and once the reach the bottom, so many people are reaching out and shaking hands with them.
Then as the couple reaches the center of the room, the orchestra strikes up a beautiful melody, and all eyes are entranced on the couple dancing in the middle of the room. They are in their own world, in a world of Love, and each other. Wally smiles as he see's this happening, for he too has found Love. Then as the music dies down, he looks around again, and wipes a tear from his eye. Watching that beautiful moment..
Then his ol' friend DSPY is heading towards his, and he is bringing his beautiful lady friend with him. Wally suddenly stands a little straighter, and presses his clothes down neat. Then they are there together, Wally reaches out his hand and heartily shakes DSPY's hand, and then he turns slightly and is introduced to the beautiful Lady Midway. Wally is astounded by her beauty, but at the same time, awed by her presence. He has heard a bit about the Lady Midway, and now what he heard, has done her no justice.
Just as Wally is about to comment, a sudden clatter, and a lot of noise distracts him, and he stares at the stairs where the sound originated from. Then before his eyes, a horrible sight unfolds… Wally's heart drops faster the Lady Lemac's body falls towards the ground, only at the last moment to disappear. Wally, still standing there is absolute shock and horror, can not move. He is planted to the spot, his eyes as wide as saucer's. People are being shuffled out of the hall, but still Wally can not blink, can not move.

Re: Newcomers

The man turns to Shane with a grave expression on his face. "The blood is Lemac's. She just committed suicide, by all accounts. However, her body and equipment disappeared, leaving only her clothes behind. I believe this is more than a suicide, and will investigate it. Thank you for your concern, and I will send a message to you if I need your help."
That said, the Colonel of the Guards smiles to Shane, and offers to escort her out of the Hall.

Courtesan Lemac
Meanwhile in another realm..…

Lemac awoke to find her self inside a small room. The only things in this room was a bed and small wash basin. She was wearing her armor, her weapons were in the corner of the room. The last thing she remembered was falling over the railing at castle Titan. This was defiantly not castle Titan, the room was far to nice to be there dungeons. She realized that her actions had worked she was going to see the face that was tormenting her in her sleep, this would be that start of a new time for her. She had done what was necessary to join this man that she felt a need to be with and his powers brought her to this place. She stood to leave the room and was surprised that the door was unlocked. She wandered around the halls aimlessly until she found a door at the top of a set of stairs. The room on the other side of the door was large, the ceiling was high enough that even a large giant could walk the hall and not hit its head.
An elven female dressed as a jester came up to her from the shadows, "Ah I see that you've recovered. Please follow me, his majesty has been wait for you, Courtesan Lemac. Come, come we must hurry." the Jester spoke with an accent that Lemac had never heard before, she knew that she was not near any place she had been before. The Jester also seamed like someone she knew or at least should know, Lemac planed to find out more about this Jester, but that would have to wait.
The Jester led Lemac in to a chamber even grand then the one she just left, the walls of this room seamed to be made of pure fire, but the room was not hot. There was a dais with two thrones that each looked like they were cut from a single gem, the one on the left look to be of black obsidian and the one on the right to be made of a deep green emerald. On the throne to her left there was sitting a man dressed in black armor. She had found the man that was in her dreams, the one who promised to bring her love back to her and give her even greater power. But what did he want with her in the first place. As they approached the thrones the man stood.
Lemac thought to her self as she knelt before him, ‘What is this, that stands before me, A figure in black, points at me. Am I the chosen one. This black shape that hides from light and tells people there desires. He stands there and smiles.'
The man looked a Lemac and spoke, "I am very glad that you chose to come to me. Do not fear my fortunate one. I am the shadow with the eyes of fire, I will fulfill your every desire. Come and sit on this throne here beside me and be mine." He then thinks to him self, ‘Your god can not help you now, Curulan.'

Midway Samporna
Reply Back at Titan Castle..…

Three day have passed and still now sign of Lemac anywhere in the realm. Midway had gone against DSPY and sent out members of the clan to go and look for Lemac, only a few have returned all had learned nothing regarding Lemac's location. Midway begins to fear she will never see her sister again. Midway was having nightmares about what happened, over and over she watched helpless as her sister fell over the rail. But recently the dreams have been different. In them behind Lemac was a man wearing black armor, he seamed to be making Lemac move as if a puppet. And below the balcony stood an elven female that was bathed in a bright light, as if she was pure and good. She kept trying to save Lemac but each time, Lemac still disappeared.
It was late and Midway didn't want to bother DSPY as he worked, she walked around the halls not knowing where to go, just to wander. She turned a corner and bumped in to Curulan. "Oh I am sorry, I wasn't paying attention. I was only trying to walk myself asleep as to prevent the nightmares that keep plaguing me." But rather then move on and walk the halls more alone she stared to follow Curulan, "Curulan these nightmares have worried me I keep seeing a man in them, making Lemac move like a puppet, and he is wearing the blackest of armor. But there is also a elven lady trying to save Lemac. Do you know what this could mean?"

Curulan
Re: Back at Titan Castle..…

The man changes his course to circle back to Midway's room, knowing she needs sleep. "Your dreams? I'm a warrior, not a diviner. As for the elven lady, I have no clue who that could possibly be. But the man in Black…" They arrive back at Midway's room, and Curulan holds the door open for her and motions her in. "You needn't worry about that now. I'm sure they're just nightmares." He bids her goodnight, and smiles at her with eyes that seem to betray that he suspects more than he is telling.

Andrew Staff
Re: Back at Titan Castle..…

Andrew seemed to have lost himself in the past three or so days, ever since Lemac had disappeared all sorts of rumors were floating around the castle. He had spent the past few days searching for answers but could find none, he had searched for DSPY or even Midway but could find neither in this state of mind. 'How could I have let this happen I am the protector of the people and yet I allow this to happen' he thought to himself as he walked aimlessly through the castle courtyard. Night came and still he was infuriated with himself. 'I am not fit to walk under the banner of Titan unless I am able to recover her.' His fanatic enthusiasm at being 'A knight in shining armor' for everyone was eating him alive. "I must rescue her..." he thought aloud, just then he seemed to snap back to reality and noted the passage of time. He ran as fast as he could to DSPY's chamber and knocked on the heavy door hoping to find DSPY inside…

DSPY
Re: Back at Titan Castle..…

DSPY sat at the table he had been sitting at for days. The bags under his eyes getting bigger by each breath. He had not slept in the three days and the stress was becoming to much for even someone of his stature. There was a loud boom at his door. He thought he had fallen asleep for a minute until he could see the shadow of a pair of feet under the door.
DSPY stood up and began heading for the door. He hoped it would not be someone who wanted to discuss clan business with him. He had not visited his office in three and a half days and did not see him being able to make it there anytime soon. Perhaps if he did return to his office he could get some sleep.
Curulan had brought Midway back earlier and DSPY did not even watch as Curulan opened and closed the door. His mind has been a blur lately..he had not eaten, slept or drank a single drop in three days. He was mentally worn down and physically as well.
Finally reaching the door which seemed like hundred of steps he opened it slowly. Once the door was completely opened he saw Colonel Staff standing outside. He did not seem his usual self. Before Staff could speak he told him that he would have to speak while they walked to his office. Midway was resting and he did not want to wake her. With that the two men walked to DSPY's office with DSPY leading.

Shane
Reply Re: Back at Titan Castle..…

*At the third evening Shane reported at Curulan's Office in the Palace*
Curulan, me and Elias have been sweeping the area around the Castle within a 50 mile radius for the past 72 hours, Elias during daytime and I during the night, but no sign of Lemac. Have you found out anything that could be useful. Or should I check on Parlik and see if he has found anything?

Andrew Staff
Re: Back at Titan Castle..…

The two men walked in silence for a few minutes while Andrew gathered his thoughts. He stepped heavily as he followed DSPY to his office. "I must find her immed... we must find her immediately." he said as he corrected himself, they continued there stride and he continued "First we must find the Arch-mage, there must be magic involved, and he is the best to go to for answers on that topic. Shane amungst others have been scowering the surrounding areas since she disappeared, can you imagine what shame this could bring to Titan if word got out that Lemac was kidnapped? That we allowed her to literally vanish before our very own helpless eyes?" He tried to disguise his own inner grief that Lemac was missing and he was helpless.
Without another word they reached DSPY's office, Andrew stood in front the desk and waited for a reply from DSPY as he watched him sit down and light his cigar…

Midway Samporna
Reply More nightmares…

Midway was having trouble sleeping, the nightmares were still plaguing her slumber. She sat up in the bed and looked to see DSPY comforting face, but he was not in the room. She looked around and didn't see him anywhere in the room, she walked out there balcony and looked up at the night sky. "Oh sister where are you, are you safe? alive? do you remember your way home. Please, gods make sure that Lemac is safe. I miss her and want to see her again." Midway turned and looked at the roses growing on Lemac's balcony, the sprites and fairies from the fores frequent the little garden each night, why she doesn't know. But seeing the roses she turned from the balcony and ran out of the room crying.
Midway ran around the halls crying until she came to the door of DSPY office. She felt safe when she was near him, but he might be busy and not want her there. But she didn't care she only wanted to be close the her love. Wiping the tears from her face, she quietly opened the door, but the door was in need of a bit of oil to quite the hinges. Blindly walking in the room Midway turned for her favorite chair near DSPY's desk, it's the big over stuffed one. Curling up in it and pulling a blanket out from under the chair she turns to Doggy and Staff. "Don't mind me I just need to be close is all, it helps me feel safe and fall asleep." With that she closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep.

DSPY
Re: More nightmares…

DSPY listened to Staff and what he was saying. When Staff had finished his speech, DSPY just leaned back in his chair. He liked to make people wonder and was hoping Staff was wondering what DSPY was thinking. He removed a cigarette from his left breast pocket and placed it to his lips. He then lit the cigarette with the ever burning candle which the mages had acquired for him.
Then just as he was about to speak, his office door began opening letting out an ear piercing squeak as it opened. Then the face and body of Midway appeared. Her face red from crying...DSPY wished he could do something, but there was nothing he could do but make sure she was safe. She went to her favorite chair..her bed of sorts since DSPY never slept in his quarters and often wondered why he didn't just move a make shift bed into his office. Midway grabbed her blanket from under the chair and DSPY couldn't help but chuckle thinking she must be thinking the same as he was at this moment.
When she was sitting comfortably her chair DSPY began to speak. "Staff I know you wish to do well and I would wish you the same, but you are the Colonel of the Titan Warriors. Anything happening in the palace falls under Curulan who is the Colonel of Palace Defenses. However I have a feeling something is amiss. I want the Palace well defended just in case. I don't want anyone who is not Titan to enter the Palace at this time and the Palace does not have enough troops to be able to do so. I want you to bring in some of the warriors just in case. I will compose a list of people who are allowed entrance into the Palace and who are not Titan members. Those beginning with Frost Knight members. They have many good knights residing in their clan and if push comes to shove I am sure they will have our backing. I am sure Lemac will be found in due time. We have no idea if she was kidnapped or if this is the working on some devilish mage. So we cannot overreact and put out a search that may be useless. I want to see Lemac back probably more than anyone else because I hate to see my beloved Midway in pain, but I also know there is not much that can be done.”
DSPY put the cigarette out in the ashtray and stood up and walked over to Midway. He gently stroked her face. His heart in turmoil and his mind as well. He tried to act like he had always done, but the burden on his heart was something no mortal man should ever have to withstand. He sighed as he gently stroked Midway's face. IT seemed she had begun to doze off which was something he had hoped for. He then turned to Staff and said, "if there is anything else that needs to be brought to my attention then please do so now, if not then I mus find some rest. I fear the days to come may be a true test and we all must be prepared."

Re: More nightmares…

WallyBasher, who has been wondering around and helping with the search for the last few days, was getting very worried himself. He hadn't seen hide nor hair of DSPY, or Midway since they had left the party, and it had been three days. So he started to wander around the castle, and as he was traveling around, he ask direction's to DSPY's quarter's. Once he reaches the door, he places his ear to it, and listen's to see if he can hear any activity, just in case they are sleeping. He hears nothing, not even the creaking of a bed from a restless body moving.
Quietly he knocks on the door, hoping to alert anyone awake, and not disturb anybody sleeping, but after a few minutes, there is still no answer. Wally thinks to himself, that possibly DSPY is not here, and that maybe he is in his office. So he once again set's off, in search of DSPY's office, he asks a few helpful Titan member's on the way, and is soon standing in front of DSPY's office door. Just as he was about to raise his hand and knock, the door is opened, and there is a haggered looking DSPY, just showing Colonel Staff out. Wally was pleased to see his old friend once again, but was worried from the look of DSPY. It seemed to Wally that he hadn't slept or eating since Lemac disappeared.
Quickly he entered the office and took a seat, that's when he noticed the beautiful Lady Midway, sleeping, semi-peacefully in the chair. He smiled to himself, for he knew how hard it was on them both, especially Midway, for Lemac was her sister. DSPY was standing protectively over Midway's sleeping form, but he was relaxed, he knew that there was nothing to fear from Wally.
Wally just reached out his hand, and shock DSPY's hand heartily, and smiled at his friend, asking is there was anything that he could do, or if he needed anyone to talk to. He took a seat and listened…

DSPY
Re: More nightmares.

DSPY was delighted to see Wally. He was not in the mood to conduct business and honestly did not plan on it, but Wally wasn't here on business. DSPY went to the liquor cabinet which he kept in his office and poured two scotches from a bottle that age had taken its toll on. He handed one of the glasses to Wally warning him the stuff was quite potent and he would not advise gulping the whole glass. HE then took a sip of his scotch and felt the burning sensation all the way into his gut. DSPY then turned his back to Wally and looked at Midway for a second.
DSPY them moved across the room to a suit of armor sitting on a rack. DSPY then said, "see this armor here Wally, it was the first set ever given to me. A long time ago when I arrived at Titan I needed assistance and they came to my aid. I didn't wear it long and haven't worn it in ages, but I still remember when I ventured forth from the Palace with the armor on. I thought I was the knight in shining armor which was expected of Titan when I was nothing but an inexperienced warrior in a big bad world. I didn't think life was important and I didn't expect to live long. Now I have the face of an experienced old warrior and my thought of life is so much more now. I fear death more than anything, I fear what Titan would be or wouldn't be if I left. I may not be the best leader they have ever had, but I like to think I have left my impression on some of the inexperienced warriors."
DSPY then moved back over to Midway and began speaking again, "Now I feel like an inexperienced warrior again. But this time I am fighting a battle which I cannot be sure to win. My life is no longer important to me." DSPY looked down at Midway, "Her life means so much more to me and to see her in this pain is taking the life from me. I am not sure what I am to do, do you have an answers for me?"

Curulan
An attack?
Curulan walks from the barracks back to his room in the Palace. He had been drilling the Guards twice a day for the past three days. Is he worried about an attack? Or is this just a way for him to vent out his frustration of not being able to do what he must. Only time will tell…

carnelianfire
Reply Outside Titan Palace:
There is a commotion near the palace's main gates as two guards bring in a kicking and biting mass of clothing and hair. "Grrrr... put me down you big oafs! I'm a lady and can walk on my own two feet just fine." Suddenly, one of the guards keels over as a blow from the fiery young elf knocks the wind out of him. Not wanting the same fate, the other guard drops his grip on her clothing and backs away. In a triumphant yelp carnelianfire falls to the ground before standing up and dusting herself off. "Much better," she says with satisfaction. Then, she flashes a quick smirk directed at the guards and quickly turns about.

Courtesan Lemac
A surprise attack.…

Lemac was stunned by the power given to her from this Dark One. But he still hasn't brought back her love. He told her that she would have to take a few actions to prove that she was worthy to have him brought back to her.
Lemac was sent to lead his troops in vast wars in the Dark Ones realm. Each time she fought she could feel her new powers growing inside her. She was slowly gaining more land for the Dark One. She continued to fight and gain lands, for one year in his realm, but due the different rate of time in his realm it was only a few days that passed at castle Titan. In that time she had become one of the most feared generals of the Dark Ones realm, but that would not prepare her for what she was about to do next.
The Dark One sent Lemac back to her realm to make an attack against the castle of Titan, and to find and kill Curulan. If her attack was successful then he would return her love to her. She was sent back with a large mass of troops. These troops were not human, not even a demi-human, but demons of pure evil and hatred breed only for war and destruction. When the time came for the attack against castle Titan, Lemac did not hesitate to attack the castle. She had been blinded by the new powers that she was given, her ethics were shattered by the new powers, and right and wrong did not exist to her. All that was left was doing what ever she believed was necessary to bring her love back to her, and to please the Dark One. She stood on a hill near the center of the open field in front of the castle. Her troops lined up behind her waiting for the order to attack.
Lemac looked upon the gate, as the guards ran inside to sound the alarms to warn those inside of the attack, she turned to her troops, "I once lived here, but none of them that lived inside those walls could return my love to me, they will all pay for that. This castle shall fall, Curulan will be dead by my sword, and my love will soon be returned to me. Attack!!" The troops swarmed the field and charged to the front gate of the castle, Lemac walked calmly behind them, and awaited Curulan to step on to the battle field.

regent stockboy
a not so subtle sign

* The drow slinked quietly into the ballroom. He moved quickly to the spot. There was still blood on the floor that the servants had failed to remove. Yes, the feeling was stronger here. stockboy was drawn to this place. He could feel her. He was sure that she was still alive, but her life force seemed far away. He went into a trance, focusing on her essence, trying to divine anything he could as to her whereabouts. The rush of sensations overwhelmed him and he was thrown backward, landing with a loud thud on his rear. It was as if the door he was reaching for was slammed open in his face. "She's alive!" he exclaimed, "and nearby, too from the feel of it."

Andrew Staff
Re: A surprise attack.…

Andrew had left that night after speaking with DSPY and headed for Nightstar Keep, home of the OSS, where he had a legion of troops waiting which he had planned to move to the NOD. He spent little time speaking with the soldiers there and just issued orders for their immediate departure, he gave them only a few hours to pack and be ready to march.
'If is more troops DSPY wants at Castle Titan I will have the halls bursting with loyal soldiers.' he though to himself. He had almost drifted of to sleep, the past few days he spent many a sleep less night, when he felt something, a strange sensation which seemed to be emanating from Hywelbane who was strapped to his back. Something was wrong he felt a slight pull and energy radiating from deep within the enchanted blade. He knew something was wrong but what could it be? He lept from his chair and grabbed the nearest stable boy. "Listen to me," he said in a somewhat eager tone "I need your fastest horse. Something is not right, and I fear it may be a Castle Titan. Bring me your swiftest horse and tell the highest ranking officer here that you can find I need to see him this very minute!" With those words the boy ran of to complete his new duties.
In under a minute a Sargent came running to where Andrew Staff stood "You asked to see me sir?" he asked. "I must leave." he replied as he lept on the back of the horse brought to him by the stable boy "I need to be back at Castle Titan, but alas the troops are still not yet ready. They may need to be there now, I am not sure of what events are taking place, I can feel the balance of power shifting and I am afraid it may not be in our favor." He looked down at the man and for a split second stared in his eyes. "No later than first light. The troops MUST be there before the sun lights the east. I know it will be hard to get them there that quickly seeing Castle Titan is a days march from here but this is how it must be, and I am depending on you to get them there." The Sargent nodded and ran off without a single word, and Andrew gave a slight smile. 'Such dedication is what makes this clan so great.' a voice echoed in his head. He pointed the horse towards Castle Titan a set off at full gallop…
