the rogue walked over closer twords them as plans were formulating. clearing her throat softly before speaking some extra bits that might help, "[i:1iw2xrkc]if[/i:1iw2xrkc], and thats a big [i:1iw2xrkc]if[/i:1iw2xrkc], should anything appear to be disrespectful, Lothir, or possible any one of us ilythiiri, may have to punish you, for appearance sake. [i:1iw2xrkc]any [/i:1iw2xrkc]females, particularly nobles and especially a priestess you must remember to never look at them. eyes averted to the floor as well as move from their path. many a priestess has killed a goblin or kobold for just doing its job in one of their paths. being in the bazaar, right? we shouldnt have as many problems."
she then pulled her pack off and began digging thru it. pulling out a couple vials she handed one to the bard. the container was rather [url=http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o125 ... g:1iw2xrkc]fancy[/url:1iw2xrkc]. the liquid inside was dark as midnight, and thick like a syrup. the smell would be unearthly.
"this, will be a great help. extremely rare, no thanks to Mae'Vir." she looked down to the ground a second, then continued, "my house was known for it. its technically a dye, yet its properties are like controlled shadows. and I know many of us here probably are not much into the darker arts of poisons, but i do keep some should they be needed. [i:1iw2xrkc]Khaless [/i:1iw2xrkc](drow sleep poison) and some stronger ones also."
she looked at the costumes then to the bard, then with a gesture twords them, "you want me to dance again for you dont you," she said in an attempted seriousness while crossing her arms, then winking. for those who knew her, she was rarely serious, and if unsure, a glance to the color of her iris would be clue enough.
"well, i see we have folks here i have not met. would possible introduction of these that i may possibly have to put my life into their hands," she whispered to the leader.

"Ah, yes, thank you Zarae. I was just about to get to that." He nods, and looks around at all those present. "Alright, anyone who's going needs to speak up now, and it would be nice if you'd let us know what talents you might possess to aid in this endeavor."

He turns back to the rogue, with a grin. "Zarae, I'm insulted that you would think I was trying to get you to dance for me again. I have much better things in mind for you. How good is your balance?" He asks, a mischievous and almost devilish look on his face. He moves to the cart, and holds up what looks like a ladder, a pair of long collapsing poles with some sot of wooden platform at one end, and some heavy rope. He glances over at Kalannor, and eyes him up and down. "You might be good at this, too, if you're familiar with scurrying around in a ship's rigging."
By the Dark Maiden''s grace do we meet. May she guide and protect us.

"oh?" she asked clearly interested by the things he pointed out. a few things ran thru her mind of what possibilities. she didnt carry the jesting too far remembering that she'd met Vara and the twin back inside.

she then looked to each who indicated that they were traveling down, a few surprising.

Krom shrugs, through much of the ensuing discussions in fact. He had never fancied himself much of a leader, and had long since become accustomed to working alone... fewer allied heads in the way if and when his raging blinds him to the difference. Discipline? Some have tried to teach him such things, few had the patience for it. But asked to introduce himself, and speak of his talents, he puffs up a bit, chest pushed out a touch more, hefting and propping his large great axe upon his shoulder, [color=brown:1mjg2stf]"Krom, am I. Talents?"[/color:1mjg2stf] Another shrug, [color=brown:1mjg2stf]"Aside from the obvious abilities? I've picked up most goblin and goblinoid dialects, and can exploit the confidence some folk, elven kind accounting for most, take, in believing me some dumb oaf with a three word vocabulary, on account of race and upbringing."[/color:1mjg2stf]

[i:36n7bzs0]Oh really? And there I thought I was ...rather manly.[/i:36n7bzs0] She finished the phrase in a lower tone as if tried to sound more masculine, failing at that, then snickered. The white soft cotton of the cloth wiped any trails of blood upon LiNeee's obsidian cheek, then was tucked away as Luexena smiled and motioned with her hand. [i:36n7bzs0]Lead on then, sister. Let's find a place to we could talk some.[/i:36n7bzs0]

She casted a quick sidelong glance at the lythari which was ready to offer the blessings. [color=darkblue:36n7bzs0][i:36n7bzs0]Perhaps you could just bless our mission, friend.[/i:36n7bzs0][/color:36n7bzs0] The priestess said via the telepathic link. [i:36n7bzs0][color=darkblue:36n7bzs0]As everyone is just too concerned with preparing for the trip. Yet your kind offer is appreciated.[/color:36n7bzs0][/i:36n7bzs0] A sweet smile was offered to Ariali and Delrum, and then another to Kalannar just before she turned and walked off with the other drowess.

LiNeee giggled gleefully at Leuxana's fail attempt to be masculine, her head tilting; wondering if the priestess had ever gotten into anything more than prayer squad. She nodded than; flashing a large smile as she lead the way out of the clearing and down the small hill to the creek' side. [i:3d7fn6yg]"Thanks for your time, I won't hold you up too long."[/i:3d7fn6yg] She said to the other Drowess as she dipped her bare toes into the water; [i:3d7fn6yg]where are my shoes?[/i:3d7fn6yg] She suddenly thought, looking down at the crystal-clear water that lapped at her small, ebony toes. She shrugged and turned towards Leuxana-

[i:3d7fn6yg]"I've been thinking over the last couple of hours, since myself and the twins met you,"[/i:3d7fn6yg] LiNeee began, fiddling with her hair- twirling it around her fidgeting fingers. [i:3d7fn6yg]"I just really wanted to apologise to you, and as I will to the rest; express my loyalty to you... Since I was twelve I was hammered with the idea that everything would go my way; and if it did not, I would have to make it."[/i:3d7fn6yg] LiNeee sighed and let her hair slink down her chest to her waist; her cloak pushed back to reveal her face.

[i:3d7fn6yg]"I've learnt; or tried to learn- to work together, to be a team-mate instead of making my [b:3d7fn6yg]own[/b:3d7fn6yg] decisions. On my way here, I picked up Phoebey, she'd lived in the village closest to me."[/i:3d7fn6yg] LiNeee figured she could be open with the priestess- so she continued in a low voice; fighting the urge to cry- [i:3d7fn6yg]"I killed my family, my father first. He was the one who taught me to get what I wanted, and I didn't want to be under the ground any longer- I broke free."[/i:3d7fn6yg] Her voice thickened and she pushed forwards; [i:3d7fn6yg]"I just want you to know that I [b:3d7fn6yg]will[/b:3d7fn6yg] change... and my girls and I will be an asset to the team."[/i:3d7fn6yg]

She blinked into the night sky; pushing her tears back- [i:3d7fn6yg]"guess what I'm trying to say is sorry, and that I'm going to try so much harder..."[/i:3d7fn6yg]

Listening in on Lothir and Zarae, the clone merely crossed his and nodded to what Zarae said.
"So any of us misbehave and that person gets the lash, huh? Sounds all to familiar to me," he said, his voice on a slight edge, as the clone remembered back to his training, where his instructors had taught him and his brothers how to resist interrogation to a very high degree.
"But whatever works, and gets us into the city I suppose."

Onix turned to Lothir; "well, you already know that I'll follow orders to the letter, so I think we're good there."

To Zarae's comment, he actually snickered a bit; "With all due respect, Zarae, I don't think I'll have to worry particularly about looking a drow female directly in the eye. If by anyone's guess is, I would say that I would have to look [b:1xdyjy42]down[/b:1xdyjy42] anyways to look them in the eye."

[i:1xdyjy42]Which for you, would not be the that hard at all,[/i:1xdyjy42] came an all to familiar, sarcastic voice in the clone's head. An eagle's cry echoed across the sky as Valor streaked down, his huge wings extended outwards. With three massive flaps, the harpy eagle slowed himself to a near halt in mid-air, extended his huge talons, and landed on Onix's shoulder, his feathered head eying everyone gathered around.

[i:1xdyjy42]I see the carnival has gathered here,[/i:1xdyjy42] he remarked dryly to the clone through their mental link.

"Would you give it a rest already?" Onix replied to Valor, not at all impressed with the eagle's antics.

the lythari chucked to herself while adjusting the passagner on her back more comfortably.
"[i:1rvpk9zg]very well. i can see they are rather busy[/i:1rvpk9zg]."
Ariali began the blessing/spell, tho no words were heard from her specifically. she was able to still cast her spells while in lupine form.
when finished, each would feel the effects tingling on them, some in a form of courage, some strength, wisdom, agility; as well as warmth of a deity on them.
wanting to say good bye to old friends, but realizing that they all had pressing business, decided to move on.
finished she looked to those following her to the prominade and made a link with them, "[i:1rvpk9zg]ready to go?[/i:1rvpk9zg]"
as soon as that was the case, the black wolf was moving off in (which ever direction).

Luexena's gaze lingered on the sparkling in moonlight calm waters of the lake, her expression was serene right now. Then she turned her head, listening to LiNeee quietly, her lips curled in a somewhat distant, vague smile. Her eyes took in LiNeee's expression and the lithe young woman nodded then, replying in a soft voice.

[i:1vlv8xfr]Apologies accepted, sister. Just understand, please. My attempts to direct do not come from my hunger for power. Just for the several last years I've been leading an enclave of the Lady in Deepingdale and got used to making decisions and bearing responsibility for those.[/i:1vlv8xfr] Her dainty left hand slid up and the fingers touched the ring on the chain, subconsciously. [i:1vlv8xfr]I feel the Dancer expect me to take care of Her people. That is what I try to do. And it is a burden, sometimes too heavy.[/i:1vlv8xfr] - It was her turn to open up some, and so she did, speaking candidly in return to LiNeee's show of trust. [i:1vlv8xfr]Please, do not take my words as an insult. Do not take me teaching as arrogance. Because it's not what moves me... I just want to be of help. Forgive me if I upset you.[/i:1vlv8xfr] She smiled and offered her right hand to the other drowess. [i:1vlv8xfr]Peace?[/i:1vlv8xfr]

Still holding the hand out, she whispered quietly.[i:1vlv8xfr] I am happy to see a feeling born between you and Onix. Don't miss it... Don't waste time. Sometimes I feel like I'd wasted too much of it with m--[/i:1vlv8xfr] Luexena bit at her bottom lip softly, silencing herself, then smiled again.

she looks to Onix, "yes," her hand on her chin in mock contemplation, "maybe we need to fix this height thing? shrink the tin can? those tunnels get a bit tight in there," her tone clearly in a jesting mannor.

she then nodded to the minataur, "Krom? vendui. I am Zarae Zyne Kilanatlar. but i go by Zarae. what caused your interest in such a journey?"
not one to speak of herself, left out the intro on the talents and skills.

"Ha! just remember to keep your head low, your eyes on the ground, and grovel in front of any female who speaks to you, and you'll be fine!" the bard chuckles, grinning at hte clone.

Delrum gave one last wave and then headed off aas well, disspaearing with the wolf into the horizon. Once he was out of view, Kalannar would slink up and placed an arm about Luexena offering her a bottle of his pilfered brew. [i:7gv3gqq0]Well the'. It be lookin' like it jus' be me an' ya now lass. An' I jus' 'appen t' 'ave a fresh stoc' o' ale an' rum curtesy of ou' stunty frien'. [/i:7gv3gqq0]He grinned at her and then slipped away glancing to the others. [i:7gv3gqq0]So, when do we leave?[/i:7gv3gqq0]

LiNeee listened quietly as Leuxana spoke; admiring her almost. [i:bnrwb7w6][color=blue:bnrwb7w6]"Apologies accepted, sister. Just understand, please. My attempts to direct do not come from my hunger for power. Just for the several last years I've been leading an enclave of the Lady in Deepingdale and got used to making decisions and bearing responsibility for those."[/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6] The Priestess said. LiNeee gave a small nod as the other drowess continued on; almost like she was opening up, allowing LiNeee to see how trustworthy she was. LiNeee nodded once again and gave a small smile, taking Leuxana's offered hand and winking; [i:bnrwb7w6]"peace, indeed."[/i:bnrwb7w6] She said.

[i:bnrwb7w6][color=blue:bnrwb7w6]"I am happy to see a feeling born between you and Onix. Don't miss it... Don't waste time. Sometimes I feel like I'd wasted too much of it with m-- "[/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6] Leuxana said as LiNeee shook her hand; forcing the petite woman to tilt her head in confusion. [i:bnrwb7w6]With who?[/i:bnrwb7w6] She thought, having no time to ask as a very [i:bnrwb7w6]'off-his-head'[/i:bnrwb7w6] Kalannar slunk up and draped an arm around Leuxana; or so LiNeee thought cosidering the bottle he offered to the maiden. [i:bnrwb7w6]"I'll leave you to it, sister. I'm glad we had this chat."[/i:bnrwb7w6] LiNeee told the other Drowess, letting go of Leuxana's hand and taking a step away from them; her smile never faltering as she hesitated- and than began her way back up to the clearing.


-------


Bella and Phoebey were still verbally fighting each other as the conversations went on below, the wolf had taken the assassin, [i:bnrwb7w6][color=darkred:bnrwb7w6]thank the Goddess for that, aye.[/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6] Phoebey had said, causing an already cranky Bella to hiss in annoyance.

[i:bnrwb7w6][color=darkblue:bnrwb7w6]What I want to know is why the Goddess cursed me with you,[/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6] Bella retorted, extending her ivory wings and launching herself from the tree; only to swoop down towards the ground. Phoebey watched as the owl exploded and Bella landed in a crimson, silk dress that fell to her ankles. She shook her head; [i:bnrwb7w6][color=darkred:bnrwb7w6]You love me Bells, you just don't wanna admit it![/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6] Phoebey countered, gliding off the side of the roof and darting down towards Bella, at the last minute, however, the bird sprang outwards and Phoebey dropped to the earth in a crouch; brown overalls clinging to her child-small form. [i:bnrwb7w6][color=darkred:bnrwb7w6]"Besides, we need each other to put up with LiNeee."[/i:bnrwb7w6][/color:bnrwb7w6]

[i:bnrwb7w6]"I heard that,"[/i:bnrwb7w6] LiNeee said as she strode into the clearing, hands on her hips. Bella and Phoebey both grinned and winked, causing the drowess to disolve into giggles as she made her way over to them and embraced each one lovingly. [i:bnrwb7w6]"We have to stick together girls, no more fighting."[/i:bnrwb7w6] She said, recieving a teary nod from each girl as they all hugged tightly.


-----

After that they all turned towards Onix and Lothir; inclining her head LiNeee gave a small cough; [i:bnrwb7w6]"so, Lothir. Still in need of a few [b:bnrwb7w6]dancers[/b:bnrwb7w6] on the road to Menzo?"[/i:bnrwb7w6] She said this with a sway of her hips, all three girls grinning widely.

He sighs, and gives the three girls a long, dubious stare. At last he shrugs, and nods. "Sure, might as well throw in with us. If you think you can handle it...." He replies, then turns away and slowly walks off to get back into the driver's seat of the small cart, muttering to himself.

"We're doomed...." he says in a very low, quiet tone. "All doomed..." After a moment, he turns in the seat and shouts out. "Well, then, let's head out. Ladies- you'll be up in the cart. I've left a nice little spot in front for you to ride. When we get to the entrance, we'll meet up with the other one, and a couple of you can hop on to it, since there's not much room on this one. All the fellows can walk as escort for one or the other. Let's GO!"


OOC: Annnnd- now's a good time to start up the thread. Those coming along- meet up in the thread coming up!

((room only for ladies eh? lol))

Zarae heard the call and hopped up onto the cart with the others. normally she would have rode her mount, but she needed to get in practice for the city. a mental word sent to Moonlight and he was off somewhere safe.
"not doomed, how about very unlucky?" she replied getting comfortable.
