Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Mysteries Can Wait


"Yes, let's go!" Linnix says, a little bit nervous in anticipating the case that the party would actually end up fighting an ogre, and just slightly on edge in general.

The racous door had left Linnix unsettled; surely some person or something would've heard such a noise. Either that, or they were surely warned of intruders. In any case, the fact that nothing acted on it was unnerving alone, but the anticipation was driving Linnix a bit crazy.

When the party reaches the final door on the side of the hallway, Linnix murmurs, "Can you be sure first that this one won't be so loud as that other one?"

Subject: Keeping Watch


While Xaris and Artanis check the rooms on either side of the hallway, Linnix stands with her crossbow ready in the hall, watching in both directions. She noticeably winces at the racous noise caused by the door Xaris opens, and quickly glances along the hall. When nothing seems to occur, Linnix breathes out; she didn't realize she was holding her breath again.

"Anything?" She asks softly, her voice hardly above a whisper.

Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Item Creation - The Search for Materials


The girl awoke to the dawn, as the sun's warming rays touched her invisible form. She yawns and stretches, but then something catches her eye. There is a glimmer below, in the marketplace. Curious, the girl flies over, just above the people below.

One merchant in the market decided to display a beautiful gem, and it was its sparkle in the sunlight that caught the girl's attention. The sapphire was cut exquisitely, the angles catching the sunlight just perfectly. However, the gemstone was only being sold on its own; it was not within a ring or pendant, or other type of jewellery. This didn't bother the girl in the slightest; she was a craftsperson after all, but now how to buy the gem?

It was a simple matter for her, being used to doing this sort of thing, as she flies over to a deserted alley. She makes sure that it is indeed empty and there was no one watching, looking all over the alley methodically; she was used to this. Pulling out her belt pouch, which actually held considerably more than a normal pouch should. Still invisible, she lays out a few articles of elven-sized clothing for her to wear as she places what she is currently wearing in the bag. With calculated thoughts, she concentrates and brings her form to change. Her dragonfly wings retract into her back as her size increases. Putting on the clothing she had chosen, she allows herself to become visible.

She now had the appearance of an elven woman, with autumn-red hair and blue eyes, dressed in a relatively plain purple dress. Putting her pouch back on her waist, she confidently walks back out of the alley and proceeds to buy the gem displayed by the merchant, for a lofty sum. Placing the gem carefully in her bag, the woman strolls through the marketplace, searching for inspiration or other materials she could use. Finally getting a bar of silver and a circlet mold, she now wanders through the town, searching for a place where she can start her craft.

Subject: Oooh, that sounds good


It might be nice to do everything in one trip (i.e. grab all the treasure and kill all the monsters) but remember, we're wearing ourselves fairly thin with this, and have exhausted a lot of our supplies, with regards to healing anyway. If we come across the mother and the daughter, then our objective would be complete, and we could come back at a more leisurely pace, if we wanted to; don't forget we're supposed to be doing the main quest as well.

If we see something very interesting and desireable, we can still pick it up this way, but we'd also be going as fast as possible, and hopefully run into the mother and daughter sooner with less encounters... and traps...

Well, that's my 2 copper pieces on it anyway

Subject: Well


If Linnix can catch anything in terms of hearing muffled cries for help or anything, that'd also help pinpoint where the mother and daughter is... even if that is a bit much to go for.

Well, Linnix is two-minded about the doors: checking all of them out could provide more treasure, and they could potentially run across the mother and the daughter, but at the same time it takes up a lot more time, and they might run into too many enemies. So, in the end, Linnix just follows the group

Subject: Let's Get Going ^-^


"Oh, don't worry about me!" Linnix says quickly, sheathing her blade at the same time, "I know I'm a bit battered, but it's not as big of a deal as some of the others, namely the fighters."

Linnix says this with a reassuring smile; in her mind, she already began to doubt the next time she'd be right next to an attacker. She didn't expect it to occur again with the party reunited after the unfortunate separation earlier. It could happen again, but Linnix really felt that someone else could use the healing far more than her, or maybe it should just be saved for later.

"Right, let's get after what we came here for!" Linnix says, drawing her hand crossbow, and obviously waiting for the party to continue.

[OOC: They're exclamation marks, but Linnix is still keeping the volume down a bit, although she doesn't know whether or not it is necessary still]

Subject: An Unexpected Light


(sorry this is going to be a quick post, since I have to go to bed soon)

Stepping away from the hole in the floor, Linnix's eyes adjust as her vision returns. However, in glancing down to watch her steps, she sees a light blue light seemingly coming from her new sword, which stuck out a bit from the sheath because of the webbing still on it. Drawing the sword, Linnix carefully wipes the rest of the webbing off, and if it sticks to her hand, she smears it against the wall with her mouth curled in disgust. The now relatively clean blade definately has a blue glow about it, and Linnix holds it up to inspect it more.

"Why is it glowing like that?" She asks of no one in particular, as intrigued in the blade as she was with the orbs of light when she first came across them.

Step outside, looking at the sky, only to find that it is an incredibly sunny day. In any case, warp back to your house to grab the toothpaste. Finally, open the package and pull out the new toothbrush. Now just make sure you have the toothbrush in your dominant hand, and the toothpaste in your other hand, and proceed to Step 12.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Mixed Words


“I could be better,” Aelistae replied simply, although she was touched at the concern Linnix had shown for her welfare. “If it were not for you I would have fallen. I owe you my life.”

Linnix's eyes, although she couldn't really see anyway, look away, as mixed feelings spark in her mind. "Don't..." Linnix begins, but then hesitates, uncertain of how to say what she felt. Her emotions were in turmoil, a part of her accepting and acknowledging the praise, but another part questions not the praise, but the person whom it was for.

"You shouldn't be so quick to look at me..." Linnix finally says, and quickly adds, "I mean, it was you who was actually fighting the thing... I didn't do all that much..."

Linnix bites her lip; she realized she was rambling, and saying a bit much. However, it unsettled her. Was she really as reliable as the notion suggested? Linnix had no doubt in the reliability of her skills, and what few combat strengths she had, but when it came to her as a person, she didn't yet know. She had broken people's trust before, and she had aided some that needed it... Linnix realizes she has one other thing she really should say.

"You don't owe me anything." Linnix says with sincerity, turning back towards the Drow Priestess with a smile, "Your blade saved both of us; I only helped. In any case, you were defending me, and so, if anything, it should be the other way around."

* * *


"Helloooo down there. Are you okay?” a voice from above suddenly called out. “I have a rope to pull you out. Aelistae, Kas has been injured badly. If you have any healing left it would certainly help or if you don't I hope you have good healing skills we going to need it up here."

Linnix looks and nods at Aelistae, "You should go first and help; it'd be easier for them to help one person up at a time."

Appearance/Description: Cracking her knuckles inside of their spiked guantlets, Kenaria Minqann strides up to the army registration office, her dark toned studded leather armour giving her appearance a dark outlook. If her blue-green eyes, elegant silver circlet and soft tan skin were any sign of kindness as read by the officer, this was quickly proven false by her actions. Her rough short-cut brown hair sways just slightly as she glances around the room swiftly, with obvious discontent. Her eyes show her nature, going flat with hostility.

"Hurry up!" She says sharply, her tone altogether serious and threatening, "You know what people come here for, so where's the sign up already?"

The officer stiffens; he was used to some of the rough recruits, but this woman was something else, "I don't like your attitude recruit! Being in the army is not about how rough you are, but requires discipline!"

"Discipline?" Kenaria asks, her tone bordering on the sadistic, "You're talking to me about discipline?" She laughs, "Let me tell you, a lot of the missions I've done as a paid assassin or just general mercenary required more discipline than this war crap!"

The officer suddenly gets a chill, now fully realizing just what he was dealing with. This woman is a mercenary, or at least was from the looks of it, and one that had no qualms about killing at that. This was dangerous, but if she was in the army, on their side, her capabilities might be worth enduring her hostile behaviour.

"Very well then," The officer says in a resigned tone, "Here is the sign-up sheet." He prayed that this wouldn't be an issue that would get his superiors on his case.

Kenaria scowls, and signs swiftly, but neatly, "There you go." She says seriously, "That, my dear officer, is a contract, and I know what I need to do to fulfill it." With that, she exits the room, leaving the officer shivering.

"That woman is crazy." The officer mutters to himself, regaining his composure.

* * *


Kenaria Minqann is an ex-mercenary, often a paid assassin. She comes across with a very strong attitude, and often hostile actions. However, she does know how to deal with negotiations, but prefers intimidation to get her way. In a battle, she is relentless and merciless, killing an opponent as swiftly as she can so she can move onto the next one. Despite her brash behaviour, she does understand when subtlety is needed, again mainly from fulfilling assassinations. However, despite her rough exterior, there does appear at times that she does have kindness, however these times are brief, and many who pursue these instances wind up dead; she trusts no one, and will kill anyone.

Yeah, Linnix wouldn't be that interested in identifying it at this point; she was only making sure the blade was intact and sharp. If she saw an inscription or something with the dim light, however, she might make a mental note to look at it again later.
As it is though, Linnix is unfamiliar with short swords, and so she wouldn't really look at it again until she drew it later (whether for practice or in battle), and even then, it's hard to say whether she'd be paying attention to the actual blade or not.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Whew, time for a breather


Linnix breathes a sigh of relief when the spider ceases to move; she didn't realize she's been holding her breath for a moment.

"Are you alright, Aelistae? It looked like it hit you fairly hard." Linnix asks, her voice tense and nervous from the battle.

Carefully, Linnix retrieves both the light orbs and her dagger. She holds one of the orbs in front of her as she looks around the room.

"This is so annoying!" Linnix says in exasperation, "I can hardly see anythi-" She is cut off in mid-sentence as she trips.

"Ow..." Linnix mutters as she lands on the unforgiving stone floor.

Thankfully, the fall didn't break the light orb in her hand, so she sits up and moves the orb toward the thing that tripped her. With disgust, she finds herself nearly face to face with the decaying skull of evidently one of the spider's prior meals. She instinctively kicks out at it, causing it to be knocked back a bit. However, in doing so, Linnix hears the distinct sound of of rattling coins, or was that just the armour she can see on the body?

In spite of her disgust with the dead body, her curiosity got the better of her. Carefully inspecting the body for a pack of some kind, Linnix smiles when she finds a pouch beside it, with the unmistakeable weight and feel of coins. Deftly opening the bag in one hand with the light orb in the other, a smug grin appears on Linnix's face as she sees the yellow shininess inside the bag. She quickly stuffs the bag inside her own; there'll be time to count and split it later. Judging from the weight of it, Linnix can easily guess there to be at least 50 coins in the pouch.

Now thinking about wealth, Linnix also consider's the body's armour and sword. From the dim light of her orb, she can see that they're still in fine condition, but given the weight of the armour at least, it might not be worth taking. She considers the sword though; these ruins have already shown that Linnix could expect close range combat...

She picks up the sword experimentally. The weight isn't as bad as Linnix had thought it might be, but the weapon feels very foreign in her hand. She stands up and tests out the blade, swinging it deftly. It is heavier than her dagger, but she can still use it as easily as her dagger. Now seriously considering the weapon, Linnix decides that since it weighs about the same as two daggers, which isn't that much, she might as well take it for emergencies. Linnix inspects the blade carefully with her dim light; if she was going to take this blade, she'd better be sure that it is alright.

Passing Linnix's inspection, she takes the sheathe off of the dead body's belt, and sheathes the blade. She attaches the sheathe to her own belt. It is definately awkward for her, not used to having the weight on her hip, or the strangeness of the sheathe, but she could get used to that. Afterwards, Linnix looks around the room for Aelistae and walks up to her, careful to watch where she places her feet this time.

"Did you find anything?" Linnix asks.

Subject: Sneaking along through the air


Much to her own amazement, she realizes she must have dozed off a bit even while flying. The girl stretches her arms and legs, yawning slightly. Yet, even though she fell asleep, she did not appear in view.

Rubbing the sleep from her eyes, she glances back below, only to find no one there. "Huh? Where'd they go?" She asks quietly to herself. She picks up the trail of the most recent one to move, and breaks a couple of speed limits flying to the town.

A spirit of the air, she had never really touched the ground before. Yes, sometimes her wings grew tired, but even then she would stay close to the sky. Watching the flickering lights of people wandering back and forth, she decides to stay up here, where no one usually looks. Seeing the inn roof to be one of the highest upon the buildings below, she softly lands on it, her invisible yet small form hardly disturbing it.

The girl leans back, resting on the rooftop, watching the stars above. She did not need to sleep at all, but she liked to. The dreams in the twilight or the night can be quite pretty... and so, still invisible, the girl closes her eyes and sleeps on the roof.

The fall itself can be quite neat depending on the circumstances, the stop just hurts, so I'd say the fall.

Take your pick:
1) Be charged with the responsibility for saving a world (you'd get the potential to do so, but you'll still be the one that has to put in the effort and work to do it)
2) Be the one that chooses and charges a person to save a world

In both cases, the charging is quite public, and so everyone would know and see (even over TV and the internet).
