The Ruffian Encampment



  • Dusk settles at the tavern. Avatara, theKestrel, and the others prepare for their journey...

    ------------------



  • As everyone is now ready, they start off....

    ------------------
    Ferazel Rocks!



  • theKestrel looks up from a whole pile of books, and says he will be with them in a bit.

    ------------------
    And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they had all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that the trees had been a bad move and that no one should ever have left the oceans. - Douglass Adams



  • Avatara hits him with a book and tells him to hurry up and post. Avatara then goes back to the tavern to wait.

  • Rio looks around at those assembled, "Hell yeah!! Let's go kick some ass!!" With that, he spurred his steed and galloped towards the ruffian encampment, the others behind him.

    They stood overlooking a squat collection of tents and semi-permanent buildings. They could see many figures moving among the camp. There was a log wall perhaps ten feet tall surrounding the encampment, with an iron bound gate on one side of it. From their vantage point on a small hill above the encampment, they could see within it. They estimated there was perhaps 100 men in the crowded camp.

    Rio turned and smiled, he dismounted. "Let's do this the fun way, huh?" He strode towards the camp, and as he got closer, a party of perhaps 20 men hurried out of the camp and stood at the gate awaiting him. Rio loosened his sword, and looked back at the others, who were hurrying to catch him. It was gonna be some fun stuff today.......

  • Rogan draws his sword and Korax is right behind him, running towards the ruffians with his large clawsword...

  • Rio slowed as he came within ten feet of the ruffians ahead of him, he cracked a crooked smile, "Hey there, how are you doing? I just thought I would stop by and kill a few of you. Don't mind me." With that, he leaped forward, and the first ruffian fell like a sack of flour. Rogan plowed in behind him, taking out another, before the second had fallen, a third was on his way. Korax bounded in and felled a fourth, and it was on! Ruffians surrounded them, slashing with swords, and throwing the occasional dagger. The rest of the party fell upon the ruffians, and before you could say, "Peter picked a pick to pick some pickled peppers so he could have his son pick some out of his pickled pepper stew....." Well, all in all, it took awhile longer than they might have expected. The most dramatic event of the moment was the really loud sound the gates made as they slammed shut, and shortly after, the sound of whistling arrows replaced the gate sound as most interesting. As I dived behind a wagon, I caught sight of a large 10 x 10 (big piece of lumber, coincidentally, it has a startling resemblance to a battering ram ;) ) resting in its bed........

  • (PRIEST) "We are gathered here today, to mourn the loss of a dear topic." (pauses for a second, listening to crowd) "Oh, well why didn't you say it wasn't a dear topic? (Topic shoves open coffin and starts to protest that it's not dead) (Priest shoves Topic in coffin and closes lid.) I pronounce it dead. (Priest pours gasoline over coffin and lights it while laughing, then pushes it into a hole) I also pronounce the Ruffian Encampment destroyed. Yay! Let's all celebrate by getting drunk.

    ;) ;) ;) (Young children: Disregard that getting drunk part, getting drunk is really evil and you shouldn't do it.)
