Drow Dragon Summoning

Posted Image

Continued from: Meet at the Cottage, Beginning the Journey




The events leading up to the dragon...

Posted Image

We rode our steeds swiftly and silently through the Rakath Mountains. We would've been quieter than a hobbit's footstep, had it not been for that dreadful cart. It was louder than a Warg with a rusty knife in it's backside!

Posted Image

"I say we abandon some of the load, or I fear the Drow'll hear and attack us!" warned Nathan.

"The Nocturnians who stand up to the Drow need all the help we can give." I replied. "We abandon nothing."

Still, Nathan stayed wary of every little sound in the rocks. I'll admit, my mind was on Reina. I could practically hear her breathing. Wait...I could hear her breathing!

"Reina...I told you not to come! Hide from me no longer; though I'm mad, I'll do you no harm."

Posted Image

She'd buried herself under all the armour! As she dragged herself out, Nathan surveyed the area. "We're making too much noise."

"Would you forget the noise?" I was annoyed. I had Reina mount my horse behind me, and we rode onward for two more days.

Posted Image

We took a brief break and set up camp. I used the time to talk to Reina.

"Just like all the old times," she joked. "You know, adventuring! Except now we have a real purpose."

"As I recall, I had a real purpose. You snuck along, like a hitchiker." I teased. "And those adventures as children...I doubt anything will be better than that."

"Nothing? Nothing could be better?" She asked.

"Well, those evenings beside the fire. At the cottage. Me with my guitar, you with your paints, and all of Kaliphlin unaware of our own little world. That's what I want again, after this war."

I walked away. It was cold in the mountains. I drew my cloak about me closer, and closed my eyes.

I woke to the sound of Reina screaming. I swore, should anyone hurt her, I'd kill them. Man or beast, they'd feel the sting of my blade. Rats and the like scrambled out of my way as I hurtled toward the noise of scuffles.

Posted Image

It was the drow. Dressed in all black, they must've been scouts sent to investigate our noise!

Posted Image

They didn't speak a word. I began to fight them off.

Posted Image

I really was more of the type to sing songs about these battles, not fight them! But for Reina, I'd do anything.

Posted Image

I plunged my blade into a Drow's chest. Night fell, and it became hard to distinguish Nathan or Reina from the Drow. Suddenly, Nathan crumpled as a Drow struck him across the head. Now I could barely see at all!

Posted Image

Posted Image

I caught a glimpse of Reina disappearing with a Drow kidnapper. The whinny of a horse was obvious, and I heard it gallop off. Reina's screams faded into the night.

Posted Image

I dropped to my knees in defeat. I couldn't even see my hands in front of my face! How dark did it get here? And now it was raining. Or...no, not rain. Tears were streaking down my face.

Many hours later, Nathan was finally roused. We quickly made a plan; He'd go on and deliver the supplies, while I'd go after the kidnappers.

Posted Image

It was midnight as we bid farewell. I could only see the faintest silhouette as I said, "May all the speed of Historica go with you."

Posted Image



Posted Image

Many hours later, Nathan pulled up to the border of the Rakath Mountains and Nocturnus. He was greeted by a single Avalonian, obviously part-elf.

Posted Image

"Greetings, and the best of tidings from Kaliphlin!" said Nathan. "I am Nathan Francis, brother of Nariek Francis, and he has sent me to deliver these supplies to aid you in the war."

"Well," said the Avalonian, "actually Avalonia has been called back from the war. Deliver those to the loyal Nocturnians instead."

"That was planned as well," replied Nathan, "but why do you return to Avalonia? The Drow are still a threat."

"You haven't heard then? There's a much worse threat than them. Remember Victor, the old historian? Well he-"

Suddenly the Avalonian was interrupted. There was a dark mist and neither could see. But suddenly it cleared, and there was a gigantic dragon! Ridden by a Drow Witch, it was incredibly menacing.

Posted Image

With a single stomp, the dragon sent all of the supplies flying.

"A worse threat than this?" Nathan cried.

Posted Image

"There's nothing worse than us." said the Drow witch.

"Go to hell where you came from!" shouted Nathan. It seemed like the Francis brothers were fond of saying that.

Posted Image

The two warriors began attacking in vain, arrows and sword not even piercing the dragon's scales.

Posted Image

Suddenly a claw flashed came out of nowhere, pinning the Avalonian to the ground.

"So this ends our short time fighting as allies." He said. "Well, you Kaliphlins aren't all as bad as you seem."

"Wait! Maybe I can help you out!" Nathan cried.

The Avalonian closed his eyes as the dragon pushed, and Nathan heard a sickly crunch of ribs snapping.

Posted Image

Nathan mounted his horse, knowing he could do no good if he too died. He rode off to warn Nocturnus that the Drow had at least one witch and dragon. And what had the Avalonian said about a greater threat?

To be continued...

Thanks!

I realized I forgot to name the mountain range between the Siccus Badlands and Nocturnus...my computer won't load the images of the map, but is it the Rakath Mountains? That's what I'll put until someone can let me know for sure.

Indeed the notorious Rakath Mountains :classic:

Considering you are somewhere at the border of Nocturnus and Kaliphlin, you must be close to Everlast :classic: you are always welcome here. But as you maybe know, the I.A.M.S. support the Drow :classic:
But because you are a Kaliphlin member, as long as we host you, no one will harm you :classic: (perhaps maybe we will try to convince you :devil:)

We can also arrange a meeting at Everlast with Donke (an important Drow) where you can discuss the release of your girlfriend...

A very good idea...I'm sure Nariek will make his way to Everlast soon.

That's a scary-looking beastie.  I hope it's coldblooded so that it wouldn't be able to survive a trip up into Mitgardia!  I'm interested to see what happens next.

Thank you! Let's hope the Drow keep their beasts in Nocturnus. But if they make an alliance with Victor I wouldn't be so sure...
