- The fool, he is now trapped! –

-HA! Now we only need to search for him, and the Glory will be ours! –

-The Glory will be for the first one to catch him. He is hiding somewhere, so stop wasting time and move on already! –

-Yes, sir… -

-And remember, we must get that demon alive, so we can cleanse his soul with fire! -

No questions then? Yea, will be better ask questions when I`m in a safer place.
Seems Clear for both sides. But I can hear knights on the surroundings, for better or for worse, they seem to be searching away from each other.

I don`t have any night vision spell or something similar, yet this place is pretty well illuminated, so I don't think that light will be a problem.

That`s... Actually a very good idea.

Take one of the pickaxes if you don't already have an anti-armor weapon. Yes, you'd prefer solutions other than fighting your way out, but inflicting some attrition with sneak attacks might make your life easier.

Yea, I just have to continue trought the Main road, until I arrive at the exit.
Right now, I am wearing a reinforced leather suit wich covers mostly of my body, and I have a fine straight sword.
Other than that, I have my last health potion, and two unknown mineral ores. I used to have a lot more of alchemic tonics and potions, but I think I ended up using them before I got here...

I think my stright sword may be useful enough. A pikeaxe may be too bulky for me. Also they seemed old, and they may break at the first hit. Yet I will consider that idea.

Yes, in fact, I heard one coming this way. He seems to be wearing a more light arsenal that his other companions. Than would mean that he is either smarter, or poorer than them.

Ok, One thing to do would be hide, going back to where I was may be the correct thing to do.

(Author: That`s all for now, see you later)
No. 628307 ID: 9ddf68

hiding is probably a good thing. If we're running away you don't want to give them more of a reason to keep chasing you. That and hiding a dead body can be a pain if blood is involved and any fighting might attract more of his friends to come say hi.
No. 628323 ID: f5705c

There seems to be two entrances that I can reach before he sees me. One Is darker, and I don`t really know what could be there, the other one is the room where I was and I know pretty well.

Sir Mark: I have been waiting for more than twelve hours, Because the kids I was asked to babysit, are some stupid glory seekers. Some other wardens may like it, but I don't.
Sir Mark: I have been drinking for passing the time, because some stupid and undisciplined initiates have entered this caves and started looking for something that may even not be there, without my order.
Sir Mark: So what do you have to say to that?!

Knight: ...I... I am sure that... The demon must be using some kind of dark magic for blind us...Making you... unable to... detect him, Sir!

Sir Mark: So do you still believe on that? Well then, go back in there, and find this demon! and when you surrender, seek for your friends, and report back to me. Did you understood?!

Well, My name Is Sheik (and I am a guy), A commander Graduated from the military academy of the old empire, at the age of 16. But all of that went down when The inquisition indicted me of being a demon. Who would have thought I would retire so soon...?

My Actual goal is... well, With surviving I will be quite satisfied, But right now, I would like to escape as far away as I can, until the knights get tired of their search.

Those Weren't knights for hire... They were members of the order of the "Knights of the inquisition". That order was born because of the numerous demons and Dark magic users that were threatening the old empire, centuries ago. Now they believe that it is their duty to protect everyone from anything that looks suspicious. Including me apparently, Because of the fact that I dont want to show my face to anyone. They have a hall on almost all the kingdoms, but their influence varies. They use Holy Magic(or sacred, whatever you prefer), and is based more on the devotion to their gods, than the magic affinity or magic power of each of them.

What do I normally eat...? I prefer meat, or cheese, also apples are nice... Though I don't know how would that help.

I Had some friends, but i would prefer to stay away from them for now, They could be in Great danger around me, And I can travel faster on my own. As for minnions... I would prefer to call them soldiers, or subordinates, for example, and I had them too, with luck, they managed to escape, and are working under someone else command, maybe for better. Also, Squad... I like that word.

...I am not longer in the effects of that herb, you know? Also there is no music.

HA! "nobody trying to gut me"... You all know little about this world then... The knights won`t give up easily and there are bandits that may want to rob me, and while at it, kill me, and those are only the Human threats. the only difference now, is that I can go on almost freely, let me make a simple map of what I can remember of the local area.

There is a small village at the south, there is little to be said about it, and I could buy some supplies, or I could go directly to the Republic of Soria, a city under protection of the king, but with government of merchants. A Fancy, but dangerous place. Right now, anywere is nice.
No. 628850 ID: d3be40

Buy some supplies. The road to the republic looks like a long trek.
No. 628854 ID: 8d0e32

Hit up the town, pretend to be a prospected who might have found a potential mining spot and want to see what kind of oar you dug up. Sell oar you have on you and buy supplies with cash. Then leave before you're knightly shadows show up again.

Also why did they mark you a demon?

I don´t think I will be able to act as an prospector, If they asked, I know near to nothing about minerals or stones...

-"Also why did they mark you a demon?"-
I don`t know, and I wasn`t going to stay put until the trial to find out, especially since I could smell a trap. As soon as I saw my chance, I escaped.

Well, "Voice of the many" Sounds good, or at least better that what was I thinking, "Advisors".
Partner sounds good, but I would prefer to give that title to someone who is physically present.
Wind may also be good, if it wasn´t an element of the "spiritual magic".
So I think it will be "The voice of the many", for now at least.

ok assuming the wolves haven't gone completely mad they're probably going to have one distract you and the other is going to try and get behind you so keep an eye on both of them. Stick near the tree since that can't sneak up on you that way and you'll be able to protect the girl easier and when the close in pick on and finish it off quickly so you can deal with the other.

Intimidate the wolves, you don't want to risk the girl getting killed in the crossfire!

Try using acid or alcohol to clean the wounds. Having a giant scar on your face is preferable to your BRAIN EXPANDING FROM INFLAMMATION AND YOUR MIND RIPPING ITSELF APART FROM THE STRAIN. Rabies is a serious disease if the cure isn't administered in a few minutes.

With luck, that may make them focus only on me.

They won´t do anything... They just stand there...

Also, let me show you. Thanks to my trained senses, I can get some basic information about the battlefield on my surroundings. helping me locate friendlies and foes alike. But with this, I can´t show you details. In this case, there is not much details to be said on wolves.
Or at least I don`t know much about them. The point is, if I were fighting a man, I could show if he is afraid, or enraged, or if they are trained or not. But I can tell where are them. It may come in handy after.

Here is my plan:
First of all, once the girl is behind the tree, I will strike the one on the left. I will only use my right hand for the strike, the other one will be for moving my cape for confusing the other one, that may come after me. he will try to jump and bite me in the neck, With my cape moving, It may commit a mistake.
Then I will turn and kill it. And then I will take care of the other wolf.

I clean off some of the blood on my sword and after that, I try to clean of the girl wounds, Sasha puts her away.

Sasha seems to doubt for a second, but then she let me examine the girl... Her wounds don´t seem to be letal, but I fear for the Disease those Wolves may had. I do the best to apply some healing herbs to the wounds.

I don´t think she likes me...

Girl: What is it? Don´t worry, Sasha won´t hurt you... at least for now.

Sheik: wh... where is she going?

Girl: She dislikes being seen, especially when she feels more than one person around... She is weird sometimes.

Well, even with her white fur, I can't even see her through the forest, but at least I can hear her

Sheik: What were you doing here? Isn´t dangerous to be here, even with Sasha?


Suddenly Sasha stays quiet. Time to change the approach.

Sheik: don´t feel sorry, I just want to know what made you come here in the middle of the forest.

Girl: I was... playing with Sasha when those wolves appeared...

Well... That´s a rather simple answer... But I understand why wouldn't she tell me the truth. Sasha continues moving around... Does she know I can hear her?


Sheik: Those wolves... they seemed to carry a disease... Maybe you...

Girl: Don´t worry, I already survived that. And the doctor said I was inmune now.

Sheik: what do you mean?

Girl: Every one in the village is sick from this, and I was one of the first ones that was cured.

Sheik: So you came here to see what was causing the disease, isn't it?

Girl: ...

That seem to have hit the spot... But Sasha seems to be somewhat angry...

Girl: Wait... Have you eaten anything from here, specially from the river?!

Sheik: No... I haven´t eaten since yesterday... I was trying to cook a Fish but it may be ruined by now...

Sheik: I will help you, for now at least.

Girl: Yes, Thank you!

Sheik: But, I haven´t eaten since yesterday, would you have some food that is not infected?

Girl, Yes, have some of the bread that they gave me for eating, I am already full... As far as I know, it´s not infected, so you should be fine.

...oh this bread tastes good, And better save it for now, Who knows when I will be able to eat something else... -HALF EATEN BREAD added to inventory.-

Sheik: So What do you know about the disease? Any clue about its origins?

Girl:...The Villagers say that it is dark magic...

Sheik: They always say that.

Girl:... It was the Monk of the chapel... and The doctor, they Where the first ones said that...

Sheik: oh... Well...

Girl: And they all think it´s Sasha´s Fault.

Sheik: What?

Girl: Well, every villager does, and the monk and the doctor Haven´t said it, But I know they think that she did it, they think that she may be a demon in the form of a wolf, or at least a demonic familiar.

How interesting... How people starts blaming of everything they dont understand or they dont know, to someone without any proof... Only because of fear. Well, Maybe is not dark magic, I have my doubts that somebody will go so far as to use dark magic just to cause a disease, or even use any kind of magic...

Sheik: Well, Follow me, We will go to where I was camping, maybe the disease is coming from the river?

Girl: Maybe, it´s a possibility...

Sheik: Also, before I forget, My name is Sheik, What's yours?

Rose: My name is Rose, but you can call me whatever you want, everyone does.

I don´t think she likes that Though.

[Rose and Sasha Have joined Temporarily to the party]

Yea, maybe, first we will see how everthing ends. Also I am not Flat broke, I have 120 gold coins!... which is enough to buy some food and... maybe staying in some inn for a night or two.

Wait a Second... Now that I think of it... Did I ever told you about my skills or general knowledge? I mean, I dont remember you asking that, and I don't remember mentioning it...

I have some basic knowledge about fighting hand to hand and with weapons.
My Favorite weapon is the spear or some other polearm, but a Sword is also nice. Yet I know how to use other kind of weapons, but I kind of dislike maces and axes.

I have basic knowledge about all kind of magic (Alchemy, Holy magic, spiritual magic, pyromancy and Dark magic) but I am not a Natural magic user, my Magical power does not regenerate naturally, and I only know how to use alchemy, The magic that allow us to improve or reduce some of the properties of elements surrounding us, like making an healing herb more powerful.

I also have some knowledge about herbs and other natural resources that may come helpful for making good medicines or dangerous poisons.

And I know some of strategy, But I don´t know how that may help.

And i don't think I am forgetting something else... maybe.

well may as well head back to camp and see if the girl wants that fish since she said it wouldn't bother her anymore and you can have some bread. then if the day isn't to late you can try to follow the river and see what you can find.

It can regenerate If I take ot from other sources, such as a magic potion or an ingredient, while someone with a natural affinity to magic power can regenerate it, most of the time they just need to wait, But their magic normally is a bit weaker.
My Actual Magic power balance is... 0/100?! I don't remember using magical power for anything since I started to flee... well, I think it dosen´t matter for now, I don´t depend on magic.

Sheik: Emm...This fish looks well?

Rose: You don't know how to cook, right?

Sheik: Well, I never cooked a Fish before, from where I come from, fishes are only brought by merchants...

Rose: Well, For a start is ok... But next time, Try at least to spin it...

Sheik: Wait, that's it? Just like any other animal?

Rose: yes, and remember to take out it´s scales, or at least that´s all they showed me.

Sheik: oh, ok...

She takes the fish, Though she reminds me that she is not hungry. I think it still is early, more or less 11:00 a.m.? I Think we have time to search along the river for anything suspicious.

Which reminds me you all know little about this world... Well In summary, Dark Magic is a kind of magic only used by demons and their helpers, Being a minion or a human who made a deal with them. If it is truth that this disease was made thanks to dark magic, We may expect some nasty surprises.

Well, I don´t know much else we can do for preparing ourselves, but I don´t think that a sword will be enough to deal with a dark mage. Maybe you have some ideas?
No. 629642 ID: bd8b82

well if you DO have some demon blood maybe you can just... suck it up? find the dark magic and steal it's energy.

Sorry about that. We may not know much about this world, but there might be things in your world that are unexplainable to you but pounded into our heads since elementary school. Take us with you and we might be able to sabotage the source of the black magic, without even casting ANY magic (other than whatever we're using to communicate with you)!
No. 629655 ID: f75cf9

Yeah, we don't know much about dark magic... but if the disease isn't magical in nature, we just may be able to figure out what is causing it.

First thing to figure that out would be, what are the symptoms? We already know it can infect both humans and wolves, and it can apparently be transmitted by food and/or water... oh yeah, you should boil any water here before drinking it.

...So if they have a cure, you can't get the disease more than once, and everyone in the village already has it... why is it such a big deal where it came from? Your effort might be better spent on curing anyone who still has the disease. Mind finding that out is still good, but it doesn't seem like the highest priority. Well, unless the villagers are on the verge of lynching Sasha... which they probably are... okay, yeah, disregard that.

Rose: What are you staring at?

Sheik: uhh.. oh! nothing, I am just thinking.

Rose:... You are weird...

Well, Even if they managed to cure the disease, and get themselves inmune to that, animals may spread the disease faster that the villagers may be able to spread the cure.
Also if there is dark magic involved, once the mage sees this, he could just make some changes, and there you have it, a new disease spreading. Stopping him or her may be the only way to stop the disease permanently.

Sheik: So... How did the doctor cured you?

Rose: The doct... yes the doctor cured me

Sheik: well... How did he?

Rose: I don´t know.... Using his doctor skills?

Either she is lying or or she is not paying much attention. I Think that it´s the first one.

Anyway, As I said, My sword may be not enough because mages love to be as far away of their foes as possible, usually. Getting close may be my only option, But I may need to be ready in case of it not being possible. He or She probably doesn't wear any armor aside from his clothes, Mages always do that for some reason.

No. 629681 ID: d3be40

Well, imagine how much it would hurt if you set your armor on fire. Or cast a thunderstorm with metal armor. Or froze your chainmail to be unresponsive AND brittle. Or caused a chemical reaction that was NOT compliant with health and safety regulations. And then there's all the hassle and risk when inscribing pre-programmed magic into heavy armor, compared to enchanting small threads throughout a robe. And THEN there's the physical encumbrances of weight, equip/unequip time, blind spots, maneuverability, etc. Which are dangerous when you need to perform actions that require dexterous hands.

Some mages are capable of wearing armor, but it takes skill to prevent that armor from working against them.

If you know alchemy, could you find something to turn into a bomb? Or if you have experience with making bows, you could try carving one.

Hmm... Maybe Sasha cured her?

Probably don't press it for now. If you do ask her about it, be sure to let her know you're only asking to find out where it came from. Also that you won't assume Sasha started it because she can cure it.

As for the dark mage. I don't suppose there's any magic-resistant material you might find nearby? Barring that, ranged weapons are your best bet, yeah. A sling is relatively easy to make and get ammunition for, if you know how to aim one. Otherwise a javelin may be your best bet. Bows are highly effective but you'd need something to make a bowstring from. Plus unless you get fletching the arrows aren't going to be very accurate.

Of course if you can visit the village and get some real weaponry there, that'd be ideal, but I suspect that won't be an option.

I asked mages of all over the world why they used clothes instead of some armor when going to battle, And all they would answer me is "My master used them" or "In the arcane books, every mage appears with them" And they would never give me a logical Reason! And to think that we needed someone from another world to figure this out...

Well, Point taken!

Sheik Trust in "the voice of the many": 17%


Well, I think you may be confusing alchemy with Herbology, wich is actually pretty common, The difference is that Alchemy needs an reaction to work with, and once you have it, you add magical power to it in order to make the reaction more powerful without need if adding more ingredients. While herbology works on the reaction that every ingredient has, and how they could combine.

Right now, without any magical power at hand, I can´t do much, and making a bomb strong enough would require me to have some tools to work on that.


I don´t know how to make a Bow, And even if I knew, I dont have anything to use as a string, But some improvised javelins will do the trick, I think. I will have two for be sure, and small enough to have them hidden behind my cape.

I don´t think there are many magical resistant materials around here, and i don´t know how would they look like.

Also, the village is not an option, the knights of the inquisition may, or may not, be there, and I hope they don´t, because if they feel any kind dark magic, they are capable of burning the entire village to the ground, and me being there will be an interesting coincidence. I intend to go to the village but once it is secure.

Dark Mage: O really? Well, "Great" Hero, You wouldn´t kill inocent villagers who are just being controlled by me, Right? They are still alive, but they can control themselves...

Sasha: *Howl

Dark mage: AH!

Villagers: oh.. what?...

Did the villagers managed to control themselves?

Dark mage: Argh... You bring that wolf with you?! Well doesn´t matter, Once You are under my control, I will use you to kill it.

The Villagers are back under his control. Looks like the dark mage needs to be concentrated in order to control them.

Dark Mage: anyway, it is your choise. Will try to kill me, but having to kill innocent in order to do it?

I don't intend to lose here, I dislike killing innocet, But if I have no otehr option, I will do it... Looks like It´s time for some planifications...

I am mostly surrounded by villagers, Most of them are carrying tools instead of weapons, and the Dark mage is straight ahead. If he loses control over the villagers By losing his concentration, I may be able to advance without needing to hurt anyone but him.

I don´t hear any other villagers coming, it looks like all of them rushed and are already here, but they seem to not had time to organize themselves.

Sasha and Rose are Hiding in the forest at my back, I don´t know what are they going to do, but at the moment they don't seem to have been spotted.

I think the first thing to do is throw a Javelin at him, I am pretty sure that I will get him, But it won´t kill him, not instantly at least...
No. 630009 ID: d3be40

Reverse psychology:

Yell at the dark mage to shoot you in the face. Make your point across that you want him to hit your face with as many mutilating and painful spells as possible.

While he's confused, Sasha dives across the left and aims for his throat.
No. 630010 ID: f75cf9

Yes! Throw the javelin, then lunge between those two villagers and try to get a good stab in on the mage. If that doesn't work try and get around to his other side so Sasha and Rose can flank him. Keep his attention on you and try to back him up and disrupt his concentration as much as you can.
No. 630012 ID: fef726

You don't have to kill the villagers to get at him. They are untrained peasants, parry their blows, and get by them to strike at the mage.

If you do have to harm them, aim for their hands or legs. Try for debilitating wounds that won't immediately lead to death. Maybe even aim for tendons and such if healing magic can heal it.

The Villagers seem to be moving in order to stay between the Dark mage and me, So whatever we do, We better not take much time on doing it, or there will be more obstacles on the way.

But, Will Sasha understand what I want her to do? Then again, those plans are good if we manage to do it...

But on my own, I better throw a Javelin at him and then charge straightforward, unless you have a better idea.

[Quest Completed]

Well, Here we are. This village is rather small and scattered, almost all the business and services are in the center of the town, After all, This Town is comonly visited by merchants and travelers moving between the Castle of Aldiamir, The Republic of Soria and the West - East barony.

There is the INN of "Uncle" Ray, an Blacksmith, and it sounds like he is already back to work, A general store, A Medical Consultory, and a Chapel.

There is almost no one around, Which is normal, after all it's harvesting season, almost all of them would be working at their farms.

So, where should we go first?

Doctor: oh, Wait, wait! You are the one who helped us! Are you in need of medical supplies?

Sheik: Well...

Doctor: Don´t say anything, first, I have to say thanks, Who knows how many lifes you saved. Here, it´s not much, but take them.

I Recieved 3 health potions.

Sheik: Thanks.

Doctor: Now, What do you need? With all the problem with the disease and the dark mage, my consultory is a mess...

Sheik: you see, I was hurt during the battle against the Dark Mage. I used a health potion, but I feel a bit of annoyance in my shoulder, could you Check it?

Doctor: Certainly, Hold still...

He start inspecting me with his magic Staff.

Doctor: Yes... I see what the problems is...

He Hits me with his staff...

Sheik: Ouch!... Why was...?

Doctor: There! One of the bones was a bit out of place, all fixed now.

Sheik: I... See...

I don´t feel any annoyance now.

Doctor: Well, that´s settled then. So, you want to buy something? See what I can offer now, though I still have to make an inventory check.

I have 120 gold coins.

He has (for now at least):
- 2 bandages, useful for taking care of bleeding wounds. - 10 gold coins
- 1 Disinfectant, for making sure wounds not get infected - 20 gold coins
- 1 Health potions, you know what it does. - 50 gold coins (already have: 3)
- 2 Medicines, For curing, or debilitating, poison - 20 gold coins
- 1 resist disease potion, for weakening a disease (Not curing it) - 15 gold coins
- 1 magical potion, for restoring magical power - 40 gold coins
- 1 bottle of remedy, used for curing instantly diseases (Though they say it is dangerous to use it in battle) - 80 gold coins
- 1 potion of the Warrior... A fancy one. I don´t think I have enough money to buy it. It´s effect grants an superior resistance to Whoever drinks it, Giving them strength, health, speed, and willpower. Though it is said that it doesn´t help a lot to the mages. (also, they say it is addictive...) - 200 gold coins

Before buying anything, I think it will be better to see in other places first.
I will write down a list for now...I hate shopping, but i guess I will have to accept it for now.

Sheik: Well, I will be leaving for now.

Doctor: Sure, Do come back, I might find something interesting then.

Merchant: So, Sheik, What it will be today?

Sheik: I am just watching, trying to organize my spends Before buying.

Merchant: But of course! What could anyone do without money? Well, This is my stock, take a look around!

From all what he has, there are only few things that I consider useful...
I have 270 gold coins

Food for a day. - 5 gold coins

a 10 meters length rope - 30 gold coins

1 meter of wire - 10 gold coins

If you think there is anything specifically that would be useful, we might as well ask him, I am not an expert about traveling alone after all.
If there is nothing, I think we might as well see the blacksmith.

Apothecary: Buy disinfectant. You can make bandages from the clothes of your enemies and some disinfectant. Buy some medicine, since poison users seems like a theme in this area.

General Store: 7 Days of rations should be sufficient. Buy the rope so that you can tie up enemies rather than constantly kill them.

Blacksmith: Buy some metal wire, copper or iron will do; we can teach you how to use it with magic to make cool stuff. And chains, for reinforcing rope ties.

I suggest buying a day's worth of rations. You appear to be capable of feeding yourself in the wilderness, but rations could be useful in an emergency. Also rope, since you don't have any just yet.

And, once he finished his work, he comes.

Sheik: HEY!

Blacksmith: Oh... I was getting carried away, isn't it...? Sorry for that...

Sheik: It's ok, I suppose.

Blacksmith: Well, Anyway, You saved us all, I don´t know what the others think, but Let me give you a reward, You can choose one objet of my store, And I will give it to you for free... Except that sword and shield of over there, They have been already requested by a knight.

Sheik: I see, well what do you have?

Blacksmith: Well:
-"That other shield there was requested by a knight whose shield was broken on his way here. But he rejected it because it was lighter than he expected, (I don´t understand those knights sometimes) But I can assure you, it is sturdy."
-"Those Axes are mostly made for woodcutting, but i think they will last in a fight, and they are easy to reapair."
-"I also have some spears and halberds, easy to maintain and easy to use (Most of the time, at least). Many of those are already requested by the Captain of the guard in the Republic of Soria, But I can make one for you."
-"I have some tools too, hammers, shovels and that kind of things, if you want one."

Well... What should I Choose? The shield looks interesting and small enough to put it in my arm, and hid it inside my cape (But it may be a bit uncomfortable), and those polearms seem to be very reliable.
I am not that good using axes and I don´t think I will be needing tools, not for now at least.
No. 630583 ID: 08de76

You want a shield, don't you?

I'm not against that, beside it may expand your options in battles and if you can hide it you can surprise the enemies who didn't notice it
No. 630587 ID: a9753c

Can you request armor? Be sure to pay for it, since it's a stretch from getting a free weapon.

If not, then ask about shovels. Did you know that some wars involved using Battle Shovels? They're designed for archers and defenders; if you don't care about dealing damage, you can knock your opponent silly with the flat end, and then DIG THEIR THROATS OUT by stabbing them in the neck and stepping on one of the shovel guards. Scary effective, AND it makes a good tool for digging out obstacles!
No. 630589 ID: f75cf9

Shield's a good defensive option. We're talking the square shield, right? It looks a little small, is it meant to be worn with the long end down the arm or something? If so that would probably make it easier to conceal.

Polearms aren't as defensive but reach is still pretty defensive. Halberds are the most versatile, but complex; don't take one unless you have experience. A glaive is a bit more versatile than a spear without being too complex so my vote's on one of those.

A hatchet isn't much good in combat but it's pretty great for wilderness survival. You ever read the book about a city kid that survived a summer alone with one of them? Me neither but the point stands.

Tools aren't gonna do you much good unless you have something specific to do with them. So unless you get a job in town, not much use. And if you did, you could probably borrow them.

Mi armor right now is good, I would prefer to not have more, it may make me go slower and, especially with a chainmail or something similar, I might make much noise even when I am moving carefully. But maybe you were thinking of other kind of armor?

Also, about the shovel, I am well aware of the military use that they have, But right now, a shovel might not be what I am looking for.


Sheik: I will take the shield.

Blacksmith: oh, good. Here you have it.

He was not lying, it is light and it seems sturdy enough to resist many attacks.

Blacsmith: Now, Would you want to paint it or you would take it like that?

Considering I will conceal it beneath my cape, I don´t see why would I paint it with a simbol or some kind of pattern, especially since I am not representing anyone right now, not even my mercenary band. Maybe you want to do something about it?

Sheik: Maybe... But first, Do you know why the republic is requesting more spears? I thought they had their own blacksmiths.

Blacksmith: I really don´t know, all I heard is that the republic is demanding more guardsmen and soldiers, and their blacksmiths aren't capable of supply all of them... Now that I think of it, they have not come for this shipment yet.

That sounds like trouble, Bandits maybe, but either not common bandits or they have the worst guards of any republic.

Knight Commander: I will go south, to the barony. If he could choose, he would have gone there as he would be closer to the border. But if he, by any chance, went to the Republic of Soria, you and a smaller group will go there. If you find any track of him, send a messenger to me quickly!

Sir Mark: Yes sir.

They start moving, It seems that they had left the horses way back, but once there, they start riding away, separing into the two roads... I no longer hear them...

sheik: Are you fine?

Blacksmith:...I think...a-and you?

Sheik: Well, I am alive thanks to you... Can you move?

Blacksmith: I... don´t... know...

Well... I think he will be fine... Now... what just happened was just interesting... in more than one way... I might need to go to the INN and talk to "Uncle" Ray about this. And We should be thinking about where should we go now...
No. 631134 ID: f75cf9

Okay, so the one that's sympathetic to you went to the Republic. That's a good point in favor of going there... I don't suppose there's somewhere else entirely we could go, though, so as to not have to evade knights at all?
No. 631137 ID: a9753c

The barony might be a good place to run. It looks like the Republic has some civil war issues or something, so going there might land you in a war zone. If you go to the barony you could buy some new clothes and keep running south.
No. 631155 ID: 296917

If you go to the Republic, Mark should be able to divert forces away from you... It's probably a bit safer than trying to sneak past the warzone, too.

How about we get some stuff from the doctor? One thing of bandages, one medicine, and a magical potion. Then the other stuff from the general store.
No. 631167 ID: 8e8341

I suppose you could go to Soria if you want to move but if not you could stay in the inn for a while until you hear news that may help you to decide where to go.

On the other hand you could also stay away from civilization for a while after buy enough food for a week more or less

I don´t really know... The barony right now would be infested by knights, And the two "Barons" (The "east baron" and the "west baron") aren't particularly in good terms with each other... I wonder who was the one who got the great idea of splitting the barony in two...

Well, the other direction we could go by the road, is going back trough the tunnels, until we arrive outside, in the territory of the Castle of Arldiamir, which is the place where they started to chase me. All of the guards of the other side of the mountain are probably looking for me.
another choise may be just traveling blindly through forests and plains, and hope to end in a better place. This idea it´s not particulary good on my opinion.

I don´t know about that... Mark may attract attention, But most of the time, no one wants to mess with the knights of the inquisition. I could use them as some kind of escort and bandits and other dangers won't pay attention to me, but if the knights saw me, I would be in a great trouble.

As for the buying, Yes, I should buy some basic supplies for now.

Acquired: 1 bandage, 1 medicine, 1 magical potion, 1 disinfectant, 2 rations of food, 1 rope ( - 130 gold coins)

I have 140 gold coins now.

Stay away from civilization? I don´t like that idea, What if I become crazy? Wait... Nevermind.

Well, The INN, Looks quite bigger than other buildings around here, But it doesn't seem to have many clients today, and it´s getting late.
I may be able to get some information about the roads here.

"Uncle" Ray: Ah, You are back, welcome to my INN.

Sheik: Hi, Have you seen those knights that passed recently?

"Uncle" Ray: Yes, And when they asked, I knew they were looking for you. I don´t know what you did, or even if you did anything, but you saved us, and all of the village cooperated in order to distract them. I Hope they did´t give you much trouble.

Sheik: No, they haven´t, But I will be leaving soon, I don´t want to be of any trouble, and who knows what would happen to you if they discover what you all did. Do you know anything about the roads ahead?

"Uncle" Ray:... These are bad times I tell you, In the republic of Soria there is a fight between two of the most respected and wealthy families, while a great group of bandits are destroying most of the caravans. Also, thanks to the new king that has allowed internal fights between lords, The East - West barony is a war-zone, the two barons went on fight each other, They both claim that the barony should be theirs, and they are too coward to simply fight a duel with each other. As for the Castle of aldiamir is in an alert state, looking for some kind of fugitive. That may be you I presume?

Sheik: Maybe.

Oh great, Wherever I go, there seem to always be conflict... It wasn't a trouble when I was a mercenary.

"Uncle" Ray: Well, It´s getting dark outside, Here, have some drink while I fetch something for you to eat.

Sheik: I thank you, but I don´t drink wine.

"Uncle" Ray: Oh, then I will bring something, just hold on.

I Wait, but it doesn't take him long to come back.

"Uncle" Ray: Here you have, enjoy.

Well, let´s eat.

"Uncle" Ray: Well, It´s getting dark outside, As I said earlier, My house has the door open for you, if you want to sleep, I have a room available, just in the second floor, right door.

Sheik: Well, Thanks again.

I think I will take that, I haven't slept in two days. Maybe if you have some questions you want to ask him.
No. 631410 ID: 296917

Ask about Sasha and Rose.
No. 631481 ID: f75cf9

>Go back to the castle the knights came from
>Wander aimlessly through forests and plains
Yeahh, both those options suck. Republic looks like the best option by far, then.

>entire territory is in alert state looking for fugitive

...What did you do (or what do they think you did) to attract so much attention?
At first I thought they were just after you because they thought you were a demon but this is way too organized and broad-reaching to be a monster hunt.

...mmm, You are right, The knights of the inquisition don´t ask for help from the local lords, for "Keeping everyone Safe". Well, maybe they are looking for someone else entirely...
Maybe... No, nevermind.

Sheik: So, How are Sasha and Rose doing?

"Uncle" Ray: Well, Sasha is in the forest right now, doing her thing, Now Rose has been very happy, heh, I don´t know why, but she tried to help me with the INN, even if there was little to help. She wanted to learn new ways to cook food and that kind of stuff, but she got tired and she is probably sleeping right now.

Sheik: I see. Is she alright? She was hurt by some wolves when I found her...

"Uncle" Ray: Don´t worry, the doctor already chek on those wounds, He said that those were mostly cured, thanks to "whoever" treated those wounds.

There is silence when he stops for a drink.

Uncle Ray: Well... I will be going for now, I should get some sleep too, and it doesn´t seem We will get any visitors. Good night.

Sheik: We see us tomorrow.

Well, I already finished my meal, and ate my bread too, so Maybe I should get moving into my room too.

When I get closer to the door, I hear someone running, judging by the sounds, It was Rose, eavesdropping through the door, probably. And now I hear a door closing. She probably doesn't want to be annoyed.

Well, Here I am... And now that we have time, I have to say:

Thanks for saving my life when I was Hurt that badly. I don´t know if I would have made it if you did´t remind me of the health potion in time...

Sheik Trust in "the voice of the many": 37% (Cooperative, Sheik Will no longer lie, but he eill still try to evade some questions.)

And, I have to tell you, that I lied to you. About the knights, They are as any other order or group, there are the ones that follow a code, or the ones that only want to be remembered as Great demon slayers. The ones that actually want to help, and the ones that don´t even know anything about the order, but you have already seen that probably.

And, I lied About my Friends... The ones I had are probably dead by now, most of them were with my mercenary group. But in the end, they were more followers than friends, for me at least. I learned to not make many friends, especially in this job.
Maybe some lords that I known may want to help me, but it will be better to not risk it.

I am sorry for that...
No. 631817 ID: 9297f4

Everyone has secrets or things they don't want to say, doesn't make you a horrible person, unless it means the lives of innocents.
Unfortunate about your friends. There may be chance a few are still about, but hope is only a feeling, not results.
Thinking away from that, a map would be nice to see what we're dealing with here. My sense of direction is a bit thrown off with all this news. That can wait for tomorrow. You are all kinds of tired and you said that you haven't slept in two days. But keep a weapon under your within arm's reach. You can never know when someone will sneak in.
No. 631824 ID: 296917

Followers, huh? So you were the leader? I gotta ask again, now. Why do they think you're a demon?
No. 631827 ID: d3be40

You may want to take a nap, it's been a stressful day.

One question though:

Where do you want to go?
No. 631870 ID: d62d16

I don't really care if you keeps secrets from us. We only want to help. Just tell us the important things that could hurt you and we will try our best to help.

Sleep for now and we will talk once you're relaxed

Yes, I was a leader of a mercenary group, and most of the time I was Hired for commanding another Army, with mine as auxiliars, against another kingdom, other times, as an Warfare advisor, or teacher... Like if I were old enough for that. My Mercenary group was mostly like my personal army, I had around 290 soldiers, and my "followers" were the most skillful and Trustworthy of them, serving me as advisors and personal bodyguard.

Why do they think I am a demon?... As I already said, I don´t know. Also They aren´t very influential in this kingdom. Maybe they thought that by "bringing me to justice" They will get more influence in this area?... I don´t think it's healthy to have such thoughts outside my line of work...

Where do I wan´t to go?... That´s a very good question... I don´t really know where to go, or what I want right now... curious.

Yes, It will be better If I sleep for now... I keep my sword near, But I will be sleeping with my improvised javelin at hand if by any chance someone gets closer without making the slightest noise.

Well, Good nights...
