The Grey Mouser smiles, letting the verbose barbarian do the talking while he readies Cat's Claw and watches their back


Dang it boy! Put that knife away before ya hurt yerself.

Little Kiba strikes true and latches onto the goblin's throat. The goblin squeals in terror as LK's fangs sink deep. Blood squirts freely through air. As splatters of dark ichor strike Trisan, he drops his shiv, shocked at what a single grey puppy can do.

A single grey dire were-wolf puppy that is... >:)


Nailz the Backbitter wrote:

"Interesting. More to this than meets the eye. Stand back boys! I'll handle, ...the puppy."

The larger goblin unsheathes two obsidian blades from his back-scabbards and moves forward towards Little Kiba in an unorthodox battle stance.

Even as goblin blood drips from his mouth, Lk's eyes never leave Nailz. His experience in the competition for the shiney gave him new insight into fighting. And since this was a fight for not only his life, but the life of the boy Allura was worried about, Lk was going to do anything to win...


A small grey bird watches it all from a nearby roof, ready to intervene should it be necessary...

Hey, the little pup rolled a natural 20. What else was I suppose to write? >:)

The goblin warrior swings his blades close to his body, then moves forward to lunge. He rolls past Little Kiba and takes another swing against his hind-quarters. Missing, he backflips, but leaves an opening for opponents. LK gets the feeling the large goblin warrior is toying with him.


"If that goblin wants to play, then I'd better take the game to the next level." Lk thinks to himself. Waiting for the goblin to have his back to the wall, Lk makes it obvious that he's going to jump for another throat bite.

Making it obvious so Nailz can dodge, that is...

Fafhrd is quick to take advantage of any opening. He weilds his large greatsword with a surprising grace as he weaves a net of steel around the large goblin warrior

"Ho villian! Pups and tots are best left to their own devices! Come play with your peers!"

Nailz whistles loudly and three more goblins descend from the overhanging of the Bazaar. Gibbering and Gabbering with wicked blades drawn, all five rush Fafhrd. They guess five on one seems fair.

Nailz turns his attention towards Little Kiba and springs from the wall towards the little wolfling. He swings and scores a slash across Little Kiba's flank. It's not a deep cut, but it draws blood. Kiba realizes his blades are not metal but made of obsidian glass. The cut is going to leave a scar.

5 points of damage

the architect may still alive and somewhere within the vicinity of the Bazaar. The seal appears to be gnomish in origin.[/i][/ooc]
Muulsh calls upon certain of his contacts in the lower orders of the Bazaar to find out any information on this architect. Meanwhile, he contracts for two lieutenants to coordinate his security, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. The two have wandered into the Bazaar after wandering the Interthereal Sea after the destruction of Club Calistria. Low on specie, they have hired out as consultants to the fat wealthy merchant

His contacts deliver good news. One gnome, Pipkin Blackthrone, is indeed alive within the Bazaar. His contact is a rather loyal Aasimar paladin named Ashara Gyvadoux. It is through her Muulsh can set an appointment. The gnome, however will not visit Muulsh, as he is nearing the status of elder gnome and is very reclusive. His unsurpassed skill at designing safes and vault is legendary in and out of the Bazaar. One fact remains about Pipkin. He is honest is his business dealings and very secretive about his trade.


With his back to a wall, a terrified Tristan looks like he is going to make a break of it. A break in between the combatants if necessary...


Run Forest! Run!


G'morning all....busy little bit of streetfighting we've got here, isn't it? :)

But is it considered silver?

Risking a quick glance at the boy, Lk thinks he is about to run. He backs up, keeping himself between Nailz and Tristan.
"If only he'd run already, I could shift..." he thinks to himself. "And here I thought this was going to be easy."


Run Forest! RUN!


Tristan curls into a ball, tucks his head, and begins trying his best to hide away from the dangers before him.

His blades are magical. They don't burn but they cut pretty good.

Risking a quick glance at the boy, Lk thinks he is about to run. He backs up, keeping himself between Nailz and Tristan.
"If only he'd run already, I could shift..." he thinks to himself. "And here I thought this was going to be easy."

"Are you waiting for me to run?" chuckels Nailz. "I can hear your thoughts. Trust me, I won't spoil your secret. Go ahead. Change into a more fearsome beast. I look forward to it."

LK notices something about Nailz. He appears to be two to three inches taller.


About to run, Lk remembers something Jh said to him once.

Jack Hammer wrote:
"Don't fear what you are, lest your enemies use it against you. It's what's in your heart that matters."

Shifting to his human form, Lk stands before Nailz eyes blazing and the axe he draws from his belt glowing.

"I am more than a 'fearsome beast', more than one of the Lunars. I am Kiba, son of Kiba the Guardian of the Ancoran Forests. This boy is under my protection and you, whatever you may be, will either die here or leave the Bazaar for good."

Holding his axe above his head, Lk slips into a strange stance.

:Fighting Style: Shifting Sands!:<-thought, though if the connection Allura made are still active, she and/or Devlyn may hear it and recognize it is Lk

This style is based on the trecherous sand that appears solid but can collapse under you. It is made up of dodges, blocks, and devastating counterattacks.


Actually, Allura stopped using the mind link every single day once the silence over the shop went away.


Little Kiba wrote:

I don't know if Allura put up a link with anybody or not, to be honest. Besides, this battle seems to be a bit crowded already... :P

Shadow Lodge

True, but they could wonder why he would think that. But now I know the link isn't up, so it doesn't matter, does it?


I'm off to work. I will post again tonight.


Heading out myself. G'night all :)


Fafrhd and his diminutive companion fight back to back, using their sword skills and acrobatic training to create a net of ringing death about them. The five goblins try to get close, but get sliced to ribbons


These ill-formed wights put up a good fight, but I feel they will be tiring soon Fafhrd!


Aye! Reminds me of when we fought those magically-enlarged ratkin from Lankhmar Below during the Rat Seige of Lankhmar! Now those were cunning opponents!


Good Morning All :)

Holding his axe above his head, Lk slips into a strange stance.

"This one is more than you can handle," whispers a strange voice to Nailz, "fall back and report to me. I have another task for you."

"You amuse me little one. We will fight another day."

Nailz whistles again and more goblin crawl out from the alley to defend Nailz.

"Cover my exit," he snaps at them, "then return to the Tunnels. There are other slaves to be captured and sold." He then flips away from his opponents and makes a rapid break up the alley walls. Within seconds, he is over the top and disappears from view completely.

And a good morning to you. I'm sending my old truck to the scrapyard today and getting some cash for it. Once that is finished, Ill nap and remain on-line for the bulk of the day.


Tristan the Waif wrote:

Seeing the goblin(s?) flee, Lk puts away his axe and shifts back into a wolf pup. He goes over to the boy and nudges him, even placing reassuring a paw on his side.

Gotcha. May they recompense you well for your truck, sir :)

The day's work had gone well, if cautiously. It paid off though, as the spellcasters' craft appeared to have taken hold successfully, and the gardens were now ready for planting. But that would be work for another day, as he thanked everyone for their help as they went home.

Devlyn noted that Kiba was not around, and most likely keeping a discrete eye on LK, so he wasn't too concerned that they hadn't returned yet - Kiba had a communication ring, and would use it if the need arose.

There were still a few dozen things to do before he could return to the Oasis, and they weren't going to get done by just sitting around musing. After sending off the workers, he started to wrap things up for the day, with Aidan and Oroth pitching in.

Of course. Why wouldn't the chaotic pally and his little bro help out?

Never said they wouldn't - just 'siting' everyone so we know who's where (and allow for some dialogue if we need it) ;)

A slightly familiar voice floats down from above. Looking up, Lk sees the lichling from the competition sitting on a roof.

"Oh my, you caused the nasty goblins to run away before I could have any fun. It seems I underestimated you, little Shango, and your abilities. Until we meet again...
She floats away before Tristan can look up to see who was talking(hopefully).


"What was she doing here?" Lk thinks this over and decides to ask Devlyn about it when he got the chance.

She floats away.

The small grey bird flies after swiftly after her, causing her to stop when Kiba shifts and narrowly misses her with his earth breaker.

Spoiler:
"How do you know him?"
"Know who?" Despite almost being hit, Corona seems calm.
"The little werewolf back there, I know you where there."
"Ah, now I see, your his father, the one he doesn't trust. He is angry with you know. I meet him while spreading small evils one day a while back."
"You will leave him alone, for if you should harm him in anyway, you will answer to me."
"Temper, temper Ancient God of Lycanthropes. I wouldn't dream of harming him. This conversation has grown tiring, so I think I'll be leaving now." She utters a word of power and disappears.
"How did she-, nevermind, I must get back to Lk." Turning once more into a grey bird and flies back to his son.

The kobold gasps. A member of the Crimson Crime guild? He had thought them all dead. Yet he recognized this one...from long ago.


Time for me to wrap up for the day. See everyone tomorrow :)

BP, where are youuuu? Hm, that must be a really long nap... :P

I'm here, just got caught up in the day's RL melodrama. Be ready for a nearly all-villain/dungeon delve thread next week, something that will have Nailz, Zhalail, and other nasties. Something I'm going to call "The Tunnels."

I am currently only aware of who Nailz is, but I like surprises... I think I'll have to bring in Lk's other three fighting styles though.

Tristan places his hand and strokes the pup. Tears flowing freely, LK notices something different about the boy. He's unusually silent.

What are Faf and Grey Mouser going to do next? I need to know. I also left something for Muulsh's player too.


I'm off to work. See ya again tomorrow.


Happy Friday All :)

Alright - I hate to muddle timelines up again, but I'll see if I can keep the headaches to a minimun ;P

After finishing the day's cleanup and securing everything, Devlyn leaves Aidan and Oroth to keep an eye on things (and an eye out for LK) and tells them he's going to the Oasis, and will be back in the morning.

He then stops by some of the food vendors on the way out to get a few things for an impromptu dinner, and returns to the Oasis of Still Water.

Muulash sends servants with an invitation to Ashara to have her and her secretive gnome associate meet him for dinner at his palace

LOL they all is me -Monkey

Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser watch bemusedly as the goblins flee, but do not follow. They stride up to Tristan and Lk.

"Ho urchin, did those vagabond sprites do you any lasting injury?" The seven-foot tall red-haired barbarian says in a deep voice

The invitation is excepted, but there will seating for only one. Ashara Gyvadous arrives alone. Inher possession is a flat glass disc.
