Well it Finally happened! I have been chosen for a quest of the upmost importance. I guess that I really showed my Master and his Brother what I was capable of the other day while they were meeting in the Inn with the other Masters. How I beat most of the Cultist that attacked the Inn with little help from the Windling and the one eared Ork. Well OK maybe more than a little help, that Windling Eramos is starting to affect me, and I only was able to Shoot one of them that fled, but we were still able to capture two of them and I did not even kill one, this time. Boy it is hard to pull my blows, I would rather just go in with Arrows flying and Swords in a blur. I am just glad that I was not asked what I was doing in the back hallway of the inn when the attack started. Or for letting the one with the bowl get away, but that will not happen again, I went to the weapon smith the other day for a new Bola. The next Idiot that tries to run from me will find himself flying through the air as my Bola wraps his legs up.
But anyway I digress, I was talking about the Quest I was asked about. It started right after breakfast when The Two Brothers asked if I could join them to find the bowl, I jumped at the offer even though they suggested that the Windling, Eramos the Fallen, and One Eared Ork, Gerneck, could help. I mean the Gerneck is alright, dresses like death and hardly talks but I can handle that, but that Eramos is like a rushing river, his mouth never stops, NEVER! But I was not about to let this chance pass me by because of an annoying 18 inch pest, so I went the Inn where they were staying to ask them if they wanted a little fun.
Eramos was recounting the tells of Heroes past at the bar, and of course getting it all wrong. If he would just focus more on the facts instead of his sword play he might be able to make a good story teller, but for now he is lucky that he does not hurt himself with that little sword. Anyway after he was done I flagged him over and explained that we were needed to help find the bowl, hoping that after the last beating he took that he would say “No”, but he didn’t. I have to admit for being so Small He sure does have a Big desire for Adventure and once you get past the Cocky nature he is not too bad in a fight or to be around.
We then went and found Gerneck in his room, I think he was meditating or something when Eramos just opened the door to his room. After a brief discussion he decided to join us and I was grateful. I was not too sure that if I went on a quest alone with the Windling that Eramos would survive the day. Gerneck and I was poking fun at Eramos on the way back to my Masters, but Eramos did not mind, of course he probably could not hear us with all of his talking.
The Brothers told us of their plan to follow a Cultist back to their lair and how they would need us to follow the guy and report where the Cultist were hiding. Of Course they said that if required that we could engage in combat. For some reason they had a Tracker there to help us follow the guy, I am not sure why, this Jones guy would not have found anything without Gerneck and I. Plus he is useless in a fight. We ended up following the Cultist to the Deeps and finally found where he was meeting with some others. But we were not sure that was there hide out so we did the only thing that we could.
Eramos started the fight but telling me to cover him and then promptly telling the fools that they were “Ripe” beyond belief, it was pretty good actually, made me chuckle. Of Course as soon as the four Cultist, including one Mad guy that seemed to be there leader, started to come at us I wasted no time showing them my skills. While the Leader was ranting about the Horror and how he wants to give everything to the Horror, I shoot two warning shots at him nicking both sides of his face. Then pulled out my swords and made him eat dirt. While he was still picking himself up, I took the advantage and got behind one of the Three Cultists around Gerneck, boy for a Nethermancer he is tuff. The poor Cultist did not even know what hit him and fell beneath the two quick strikes of my swords. Knowing that Gerneck would now be ok, I turned back to the Mad leader, who was now foaming at his mouth with murder in his eyes. Well I could not let him live and If he acted…. Well I was faster and my swords felt like they were cutting through soft butter has he fell to his death.
One of the four cultist survived so we bound him, gathered the Bowl and found our way back to the Kaer. It was great, my Master did not even give me any grief and we were treated like heroes for a little while, I liked that. But with the Bowl back in the Master’s hands they will be leaving to see if the Horror is still there, and I will have to wait to learn more of my Discipline and right when I feel ready to take the next step.
