Scioto goes Out Of Character. Sep 13, 2019 at 7:47 p.m.
Adrian heads down the west path. Sep 13, 2019 at 8:54 p.m.
The hares have traveled, a lot and had some stops that lastest longer than they should, and maybe got lost a couple times...finally...FINALLY the Castle in Southsward is in sight, they will be there after going down or maybe its up a path....well after they deal with one issue first Sep 13, 2019 at 10:17 p.m.
A group of cloaked beasts have watched the hares and now strike, 3 foxes and a stoat jump out from the path behind trees, weapons already drawn! Sep 13, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.
Elbio frowns, he had fallen behind a little as he frowns "I have blisters on blisters....hey walk slower guys..."Then he yelps as a fox is in front of him sudenly and he sidesteps rolling clear of one very sharp blade"GUYS!!!" Sep 13, 2019 at 10:20 p.m.
Adrian had been amiably chatting with his friend Monty, the two hares laughing as they talk. One could almost make the mistake of assuming that their guard is down... Which couldn't be further from the truth. Adrian has his rapier out in a moment, and Monty has blade drawn as well. Yerna is nowhere to be seen. "Well, jus' when I was startin' ta think tha' Southswahd was goin' t' be bloody borin', wot!" Sep 13, 2019 at 10:23 p.m.
The stoat just smirks and starts to fight one of the hares, while a couple foxes go after Adrian, the last one slices at Elbio and grins "You won't find him" This should be an easy kill the fox assumes, he is a trained assassin after all. Sep 13, 2019 at 10:28 p.m.
Elbio may not be as well in a fight as his friends but he has learned some while being with them, his sleeve his cut but no injury as he got lucky as he has a dirk he found and stabs the fox in the shoulder . Sep 13, 2019 at 10:29 p.m.
Adrian has about lost his patience with vermin on this journey. He sighs, easily parrying one fox's lunge, slicing the beast's shoulder with the tip of his sword. "Lissen, mate, we're bloody Long Patrol 'ares... Ya can't possibly 'ope ta bloomin' well win..." Sep 13, 2019 at 10:39 p.m.
(One fox asks "Long Patrol...who's that---"And the fox's life ends at the paws of one of the hares, the other fox tries to slice at Adrian again as the stoat is fighting Monty now, and that leaves a fox for Elbio.) Sep 13, 2019 at 10:41 p.m.
Elbio sidesteps, slices. sidesteps stabs and rolls out of teh way of the fox who he has injuried fairly good, the fox grabs the hare by the ear as Elbio tenses up in pain "Ow..Ow....thats me ear....." The fox thinks he has won now "Last words?" The hare frowns at first and then grins....oh theres the haremaid and the now headless fox..Elbio smiles "Guess I have a lot more words ha ha" He looks around 2 dead foxes so that leaves one fox and one stoat. Sep 13, 2019 at 10:44 p.m.
Adrian lunges forward, his rapier slicing at the fox's weapon paw. The beast screeches in pain and rage, and drops his sword. Adrian has him disarmed, and he presses his advantage, pressing his sword against his foe's throat. "Alright, yahr goin' ta speak, or 'm goin' t' kill yah, undahstand, wot?" Sep 13, 2019 at 10:56 p.m.
The stoat looks over "Release him...or join the captive" The stoat frowns as he has 4 hares here, well 3 seeing as Adrian is busy, The stoat in rage goes to try, thats try and behead Adrian....but doesn't even get a chance before falling over dead....and the fox has 4 hares to deal with now, will he speak? Sep 13, 2019 at 11:01 p.m.
Elbio pants a little tried and stands better "Well couldnt bally well expect the joyney to be too quiet for too long wot"He chuckles a little, picking up on the hare talk bit more too, he keeps his dirk out, yes he still has his longbow and arrows but he didnt use them. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:02 p.m.
Adrian becomes aware of the downed stoat, and he preses his blade in closer, forcing the fox to back against a nearby tree. "Wot 'captive'? SPEAK!" Adrian's voice is growing angrier and louder. "Don't MAKE me ask you again!" The fox, who was so confident before, is beginning to look frightened, having completely underestimated this party of hares. "Th-th-th... The PRINCE! LEMME GO, PLEASE! I BEG OF YER!" Sep 13, 2019 at 11:11 p.m.
Elbio listens "Prince?" He is curious, welll they were going to the castle as he frowns but quietly listens to see what else is said. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:16 p.m.
Adrian pushes his sword in tighter, nicking the fox's neck, and drawing blood. "The Prince of Castle Floret?" he asks, his voice low and dangerous. The fox meekly nods, as blood drips onto his shoulder. "Where is he? WHERE IS HE?" The fox babbles incoherently. "I-I-I d-d-d-dunno! PLEASE DON'T KILL ME!" Sep 13, 2019 at 11:20 p.m.
Its not like the foxes friends will help him, they are dead. Everyone is quietly letting Adrian question the fox. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:22 p.m.
Elbio frowns, "This is bad right?" He asks the other two hares, well he wanted adventure and he has gotten it. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:23 p.m.
Adrian huffs angrily. "Yah don't know, eh? Well... This is yahr lucky day, *fox*. I'm not goin' t' kill ya... I'm goin' t' keep you alive, an' we're goin' t' tie your paws togethah... An' then we're goin' t' march y' ovah to tha' bloody castle." He calls over his shoulder, "Elbio... Bring me th' rope..." The fox gulps, looking both relieved that he won't die, but also still terrified of Adrian. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:29 p.m.
Elbio nods and gets the rope, he goes to hand it over to Adrian "Here ya go sur" Sep 13, 2019 at 11:31 p.m.
Adrian takes the rope, and ties the fox's paws firmly, then lets him step away from the tree. "Okay, change o' plans everyone. Was intendin' ta stop in town f'r th' night, an' 'ead ta Castle Floret in th' mornin', but we've got a prisonah now, an' info about a royal kidnappin'. Like as not, th' King'll wanna hire us. Castle Floret is 'alf a mile from 'ere, by my estimate. So let's get movin'." Sep 13, 2019 at 11:41 p.m.
The fox will hopefully be wise as there will be guards at the castle and likely a couple look out beasts on the road. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:43 p.m.
Elbio follows as he is sort of rear guard, they seem to not run into any more bandits or assassins and the hare is happy for that as he ajusts his quiver a little and looks around as they walk closer and closer.It's not a bad walk at least and a half a mile is not too far at all. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:45 p.m.
Adrian and Monty keep a close eye on their captive. Yerna meanwhile blends into the treeline again, as they follow the road toward Floret. The sun is dipping closer toward the western horizon by now, though the heavy forest surrounding them makes that harder to see. The castle looms ever closer, however... Sep 13, 2019 at 11:50 p.m.
Elbio stays close as they draw closer and finally get to where they can be at the gates. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:52 p.m.
Adrian gives the rope a harsh tug, as they near the castle gate. "There it is. Keep quiet and behave..." Sep 13, 2019 at 11:55 p.m.
Any guards are on clear alert when the hares and thier fox captive come towards the gates. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.
Adrian heads down the north path. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
Elbio heads down the north path. Sep 13, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
Adrian bristles visibly at the implication from the squirrel. "As I stated before, sirrah, I am a Corporal in the bloomin' Long Patrol, an' I'm th' commandin' officah o' this party." He is not going to bring up Monty at this time, who no doubt is already pulling the accused thief deeper into the forest until such time as Adrian can ascertain the truth. Which he certainly cannot do right now. "Elbio here will be dealt with... *privately*, at *my* prerogative." He is uncharacteristically gruff, as if asserting his dominance to another military beast. "We c'n offah our 'elp to you ta find th' beast y'seek, but it'll be undah our own terms, as membahs o' the Long Patrol, wot." Oct 9, 2019 at 1:02 a.m.
Bitter, the second mouse, has taken off back towards Southsward at a run to fulfill her captain's orders. The squirrel scans the forest with a deepening scowl, his breathing still ragged from exertion. He does stop to give a bark of higih-pitched laughter. "Some warning shot!" He pats the dent in his shoulder plate with a wink. Coming from anyone else, this tale would be dismissed - but these are hares of the noble Long Patrol! Therefor, the guards go with it. That is, until we get into military posturing. The captain bristles in return and rounds on Adrian. "Well, /Corporal/, ye aren't in th'bloody mountain. /Your/ underling attacked one of mine - and as captain of this guard, I'll have yer respect if ya want t'step a single toe in /my city/." Oct 9, 2019 at 1:07 a.m.
(Elbio earns an eye-roll from the squirrel, who steps off to the side with him and Yerna. He speaks in a whisper. "It was a good shot." He laughs. "Look, here's th'deal: about three weeks ago, we saw a... Spike in crime in Southsward. That doe, Selena, seemed t'be at the forefront of it. Mostly... Petty things, until today." He sighs, glaring down the trail. "Small cons, some gambling wins stolen - but today, she went too far. Cleaned out a local tavern and then lit th'place on fire. It took th'whole town t'get the thing contained again - she could have killed us all! Instead, there was only one casualty. The owner - she was... Trapped." He slams the butt end of his spear into the dusty ground. "She /will/ answer for this.") Oct 9, 2019 at 1:07 a.m.
Monty had indeed been given the task to keep an eye on the doe, and for the most part he'd been doing a pretty good job. Then, a noise in the forest briefly caught his attention, and the second he turned his head to investigate, the doe had simply vanished...leaving the buck standing there staring at the spot she had just been moments ago. Paws hanging down at his side, Monty blinks, head moving from side to side as he tries to pick up and indication of where she might've done. "...oh bloody 'ell," he mutters. "Just fantaaaastic...." With a sigh, he trudges back in the direction of the others, now empty-pawed and a little ashamed that he had let it happen. Oct 9, 2019 at 1:15 a.m.
done=gone Oct 9, 2019 at 1:15 a.m.
"Respect goes both ways, *Captain*," is Adrian's reply. "Those are serious charges yahr levellin'... 'Ave you th' proof she absolutely *did* staht th' fire?" Oct 9, 2019 at 1:17 a.m.
Elbio just is quiet, either way he is likely getting a lecture, he hates lectures as he had one a couple weeks ago for sleeping in too late, yep extra laps were not fun. Oct 9, 2019 at 1:18 a.m.
"/Her/ crimes are out of your jurisdiction, /corporal/. Th'only crime that /you/ need t'worry about, is the attack on my guard." He growls and shoots a /look/ to the squirrel growing buddy-buddy with the hare that shot him, and Bayshoot straightens, clearing his throat awkwardly. And then there is Monty. "And ya lied about the number of beasts with ya -" A vein is fit to burst at the side of the mouse's neck as he bubbles with rage. "This doesn't smell right - you're t'come with us. Will you do so peacefully, or are we going to do this th'hard way?" Oct 9, 2019 at 1:20 a.m.
Monty comes to a stop at the scene, the compact hare looking from one face to another, then back in the other direction as he attempts to ascertain what exactly is happening. A paw lifts, rubbing at the back of his neck awkwardly, as he stares at the mouse who looks like his ears are about to burst into flames. "Uh. Might I suggest a few breathin' exercises, mate? They really c'n help with all th'stress y'look like yer dealin' with. An' just lookit me. I know allll about that. Heh. Uh. Yeah." He gives a shrug, looking back to Adrian for an explanation as to what is going on. "An' doin' things th'hard way unfortunately is a way'o'life, so, uh, I'm totally fine goin' down that road if you are...." Oct 9, 2019 at 1:26 a.m.
Elbio looks to Adrian as well, he is the higher ranking hare after all, what ever he says..he will do. Oct 9, 2019 at 1:30 a.m.
Oh, Elbio is *certainly* getting the lecture of a million lifetimes, and if it was possible, a demotion would be in the mix, too. "I nevah lied," Adrian says, through gritted teeth. "*You* didn't *ask* 'ow many beasts I 'ave wi' me, an' I didn't tell." He's taking a sharp dislike of the captain. However, he gives Monty a sharp look. Now is not the time. "If you will cease being *antagonistic*, sirrah, then I think you'll find the Long Patrol will be cooperative, 'owevah... We are not going to cooperate with an interrogation. The only *crime* is that a greenhorn hare accidentally fired an arrow without lookin'... Somethin' 'e *will* be punished for. I frankly find yahr bloody insinuations to be extremely insultin'. Indeed, I am bearin' a lettah from our Lord Ciocan to yahr Squirrelking Garheld, sent in good faith and friendship. I would strongly suggest yah don't allow a misundahstandin' ta to ruin that friendship..." Oct 9, 2019 at 1:36 a.m.
"One." The captain growls, lifting a claw. "My /antagonistic/ behavior might have somethin' t'do with yer green hare's actions. Bayshoot could have been killed. My antagonistic behavior might /also/ have summit t'do, with th'bloomin' self-proclaimed corporal that comes bustin' out tryin' t'prove how big in 'is boots 'e is. I haven't /insinuated/ anythin' - /my guard was shot/ by one'a your beasts. I'm not insinuatin' a thing - only statin' th'facts. Now, I would /love/ t'have a civilized conversation about this, but the only way that happens now, is in th'holdin' cell of my jail. Ye aren't in th'mountain, /Corporal/ - yer in Southsward, an' the crimes done here, those are /mine/ t'handle." He points at Monty. "An' who're you? Why were ya skulkin' around?" The squirrel stands awkwardly, his spear held in both paws. Oct 9, 2019 at 1:44 a.m.
Monty simply staaaares for a moment or two, the hare blinking as he looks between the captain and Adrian. "Whoa. There's a whooole big chunk o'somethin' I totally missed here, fellas." His gaze settles on the captain, and he scratches at an ear. "Uh. Was I skulkin'? Hrm. Pardon me then, mate, been tryin t'work on my non-skulkin' walk but I guess I'm not doin' a bloody good job of it, eh?" he shrugs. "An' th' name's Montgomery Reginald, bloody 'ell, forget it, the name's Monty. Of th'Long Patrol. If...he didn't already tell you..." he waves a paw towards Adrian. "Was escortin' a doe out fer some questions, an'...she just poofed inta thin air." He snaps his fingers. "So happened t'be in that direction, so...that's th'direction I came from." The hare gives a shrug. "Wot's this about crimes n' holdin' cells n'such?" His brow furrows. Oct 9, 2019 at 1:52 a.m.
That settles it, Elbio is getting a demotion. Adrian frowns. "I'm afraid that is not going to be happening. The hare shot at you, t'is true, but 'e 'as already explained it was an accident. If you can't undahstand *that*, then I'm afraid yahr thickah in th' 'ead th'n I gave yah credit for." He glances over at Yerna and Elbio, making surreptitious gestures directing them back into the brush. "If you treat all visitors to yahr land by throwin' 'em the dungeon, then yahr Southswahd's a fah less 'ospitable land than I was told..." And then Monty mentions the doe. Adrian facepalms. Now the Captain does have proof that he lied. "Monty, ix-nay the oe-day..." Yes... They're about to make a run for it... And in different directions. Three guards cannot possibly catch four hares, and the four will be in the wind by the time back-up arrives. "Lovely speakin' to yah, *Captain*. Monty, *RUN*!" Oct 9, 2019 at 1:56 a.m.
Escorting a doe to be questioned... The captain stares at Monty and then slowly turns his gaze on Adrian. "Are ya comin' peacefully or not?" The answer... Is not! When the hares start running, the captain and Bayshoot leap to chase after them - but it's helpless. Diplomatic relationships may have just gotten a biiiit more complicated! Oct 9, 2019 at 1:57 a.m.
Monty gets the impression that he more than likely shouldn't have opened his mouth, judging by Adrian's reaction. "Oh! I mean, doe? Wot doe? Never heard o'such a thing in all me life...." Then Adrian gives the command to flee, and Monty turns and does just that in the direction he had come from. "RETREEEEAT N'SUCH!" The small hare is fast, if anything else, and is soon done into the forest along with his companions. Oct 9, 2019 at 2 a.m.
