[Closed] Strike

Post  Ketic on Fri Aug 20, 2010 8:28 pm

First topic message reminder :

The Hunter moved with down the hallway with uncanny grace. He passed two guards with jet black arrows in their chests, then he came to a door. It was not locked. He crept in and looked at the sleeping lump in the large bed. Boring ending for a boring man. Three arrows left The Hunter's bow almost in unison, the thwang of the bowstring a continuous noise.

The Hunter left the room quietly, and stood in the hallway. He counted to five then prepared to run.

"Lord Alister! The lord has been murdered! Come quick!" A voice rang out from inside the lord's chambers. The Hunter ran quickly down the hall, opposite of the way the soldiers were rushing to see if their lord really was dead.

deGray awoke to a flickering yellow light. At first he thought it was his fire, then he realized it was coming from the window. The battlemaster rose quickly and jogged to the window. What he saw made him gasp.

From his spot near the top of the third and smallest tower, deGray had a clear view of what was going on. Fire spread along the courtyard, obviously goaded on by oil or gunpowder. Hundreds of soldiers flanked the castle, and were climbing up the walls on siege ladders. Fights were already breaking out down below on the castle grounds, but deGray had no idea where Hadrian's soldiers could have come from.

Not good! Those battle plans must have been a decoy!!! deGray burst out of his room holding a two handed claymore. He looked around for any enemies, and not seeing any he began to sprint towards the stairs that would lead him to the fight below.

-

Chivel was already awake when she heard yelling. She nimbly rose from her spot in an armchair next to the fire and opened the door of her small cabin. Her face had no expression as she watched the battle.

The ranger lived in a cabin about a kilometer from the castle. The castle was on a large hill, so all Chivel could see was the mass of soldiers climbing the walls. In seconds she was wrapped in a cloak and a bow was in her right hand. She sprinted over to her horse Cab and quickly mounted. Lets see if we can get in without being noticed...

"I know the way. We have a flint and tinder but I don't want to use that until we are far away from Hadrian's men." deGray moved along the wall of the dark crypt, knocking every so often to show Muradin where he was. "It shouldn't be far now."

-

Chivel sighed. "You are right but arent there like 50 of you in the corps? Couldn't you have helped with the battle?" She admitted she was wrong but she still felt uneasy that these rangers had just stood by while people were killed. Isn't that what I did?

Muradin grumbled, he never did like the dark mostly because he could hardly see. "Where is the end to this blasted tunnel?" Muradin stumbled over some bones and they clattered across the cobblestone floor.

-

"There are 20 of us including us three." Barley replied. "Now we should really get going before any of Hadrian's men spot us standing here." Barley made for the forest. Azreal followed.

deGray pulled a root handle and the exit passage swung open. Harsh light burned into the damp crypt and deGray had to shield his eyes. "Well the sun came up." The Battlemaster opened the door the rest of the way and stepped into the cool morning air.

Hills stretched out for miles, and in the distance there was a dense jungle. Just past the jungle a large hill was visible. Atop the hill there was an epic gray blot.

That must be Lord Cromwell's castle. deGray sighed and watched with amusement as Muradin climbed out of the crypt. "We are going to head south-west to the plains. I don't know if you can make it out, but Lord Cromwell has his castle built on the only hill in his lands... Look past the jungle there." deGray pointed.

-

Chivel gritted her teeth uneasily as she followed the ranger into the forest. As she walked she slowly caught up to Azreal. "Okay when we reach the camp let me do the talking. I've never met Coventry, he leads Mossfield's Rangers, but I've heard stories. Hes a fair man." Chivel whispered into the boy's ear. She felt stupid afterwards because she knew rangers all had exceptional hearing.
