The Castle town of Linness

A castle town in the middle of nowhere, it's well fortified against invasions.

Aryna and Elyea appear on the streets not from from the entrance.
Who

Elyea stumbles a little and Birdie's head twitches a few times as they get their barrings.

"Woah, that was weird."
Metakirb

You get used to it.
Who

"I don't think he liked it."

She gently pets Birdie's head as he lets out a little coughing burble.
Metakirb

Aww, I'm sorry Birdie.

She tries to pet his ehad gently aswell.
Who

He's happily burbling pretty soon.

"So, wanna go look around?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Come on then."

Elyea begins to head towards the foreboding keep ahead of them.
Metakirb

Ary follows.
Who

"So, do we knock or something?"
Metakirb

I'm not sure, I could teleport us in?
Who

"I don't know, that might be a bit rude."
Metakirb

Yeah, but I don't see anywhere to knock or anything.
Who

"We could just bang on that?"

Elyea points to the large drawbridge barring their entrance in to the keep/
Metakirb

I guess we could try.
Who

Elyea nods, knocking on the door, muttering a few syllables of truespeech in order to amplify her knocking. A voice yells over the battlements.

"Who goes there?!"
Metakirb

We're wondering if you have an adventure or something.
Who

"You want what?"

The voice sounds a might perplexed.
Metakirb

An Adventure.
Who

"Oh, you're one of them sort."

Slowly the drawbridge is lowered, allowing them a short distance in before they'll be stopped by a much smaller metal gate.
Metakirb

Ary walks over to it.
Who

She'll be met by two guards.

"Any weapons?"
Metakirb

I've got a sword. But I can't really let go of it.
Who

"It just needs to be logged, present it."
Metakirb

She takes the sheathe off her back and shows it to them, though she won't let anyone take it.
Who

They seem happy once they've seem it.

"Any other weapons?"
Metakirb

Does this gauntlet count?

She holds up her left hand.
Who

They nod, marking it down. That done they turn to Elyea.

"We'll have to hold that animal for the duration of your visit."

"What? No."

She scoops Birdie off her should and holds him protectively.
Metakirb

Please? Birdie's harmless.
Who

"Law's the law. All drakelings and such to be caged."
Metakirb

Please?
Who

The guards shake their heads.

"Them's the rules. If you wont hand it over you're going to have to leave."
Metakirb

Sorry Elyea.
Who

"No. He's staying with me."
Metakirb

Maybe I could go in on my own?
Who

"Sure, if you want."
Metakirb

See you soon then.
Who

Elyea heads back the way they came as the final gate baring Ary's passage in to the keep opens.
Metakirb

Ary heads inside.
Who

The gate leads to a large courtyard, bedraggled peasants stop what they're doing as Ary enters. Recent events have taught them to mistrust strangers.
Metakirb

She looks for a guard.
Who

There's the one that just let her in as well as a few more scattered about the place. Everyone who was watching slowly gets back to their business now that Ary doesn't seem to be a threat.
Metakirb

Um.. Who do I need to go see about the adventure?
Who

One of the guards approaches her.

"You talking about the dragon?"
Metakirb

A dragon? Cool! Yeah.
Who

The guard's a little taken a back by her enthusiasm but nods.

"Follow me."

He leads her in to a small room, a dog eared map of the surrounding area pinned to the wall, a few other guards stands around it.
Metakirb

Ary follows.
Who

"How much do you already know?"
Metakirb

Nothing, I just got here.
Who

"A dragon has taken roost nearby, we're not quite sure where but it's close enough to mount regular raids with its minions."
Metakirb

So you want it found and killed?
Who

He nods.

"It recently managed to capture one of the royals too. We don't know why or what for though."
Metakirb

Right, Any ideas where to start looking?

A man in a mask walks over.

You're sending a little girl to hunt it now?



And since I've not shown it yet, Ary in her current age.

Who

The guard sighs at the newcomer, he's really sick of having to deal with him.

"We're not sending more guards out there and she volunteered."
Metakirb

I never expected you to send out more guards. It's not your job. His majesty has put out the reward for this, true, but take a look at who you're sending off to her death.

Hey. You don't know who you're talking about. I'm strong. Really strong.
Who

"We can use all the help we can get. She has a friend with a drakeling waiting outside."
Metakirb

And you think someone who keeps a little one of those thigns can be trusted?
Who

"She cooperated with the guards, at the very least they might be able to find its lair."
Metakirb

Tell his Majesty I'm going with them.
Who

He nods and heads off to do just that, grumbling about being bossed by someone younger than him.
Metakirb

Sodan starts walking to the gates, Ary following behind him.
Who

Elyea's waiting for her outside, Birdie perched on her head.

"That didn't take long."
Metakirb

Nope. We're going Dragonslaying.

I fail to see why you're so enthusiastic about this.
Who

"Ooo, fun. Any idea what kind?"
Metakirb

It's a Blue Dragon.

He starts walking in the way he believes it's lair to be.
Who

Elyea thinks for a second.

"Breathes lightning right? Very territorial."
Metakirb

He nods.
Who

"Might want to lose that mask then."
Metakirb

He shakes his head.
Who

"Sure? It's going to be a pretty good target for it."
Metakirb

Surely it's likely to go for you and that little dragon with you if it's territorial.
Who

"Well technically he's not a dragon and anyway it'll probably go for whoever looks the most threatening."
Metakirb

He shrugs and keeps walking.
Who

They might be able to see a small set of hastily assembled shacks off in the distance.
Metakirb

Ary starts running towards them.
Who

Elyea chases behind her, not quite able to keep up. There's about three or four of the buildings, no windows just a door and they all smell rather damp and musty from the outside.
Metakirb

Hello?
Who

No response, Elyea stops behind her, panting heavily to catch her breath.
Metakirb

She shouts louder.
Who

Still nothing.

"Call it a hunch, but I don't think anyone's home."
Metakirb

Guess not.
Who

"Think this has anything to do with the dragon?"
Metakirb

We don't know.
Who

"We should probably take a look inside still. Everyone pick a door."
Metakirb

Ary picks one, Sodan picks another.
Who

As the doors swing up our heroes'll be met with an absolutely foul stench, though they wont be able to see exactly what's making it right away. If they dare venture inside the structures they'll find the rooms to be covered in cobwebs the individual strands much larger than what could be produce by your average spider.
Metakirb

Ary's regular enthusiasm turn to nervousness as she spots the cobwebs, and as such she doesn't head inside, Sodan on the other hand heads in to find what's causing the smell.
Who

He'll discover the smell is coming from a partially eaten corpse tangled up in some of the webbing.

"Come see this!"
Metakirb

He heads over, Ary heads over cautiously.
Who

Elyea's dragging a large shed carapace out from the building she chose, it's distinctly arachnid but also rather blue and scaly.

"Weird huh?"
Metakirb

Ary looks away very quickly.
Who

"I guess they really will breed with anything. Ever seen one of these before?"
Metakirb

Yeah, They're with the dragon whenever it attacks.

You could've said there'd be spiders...
Who

Elyea looks to her friend with some concern.

"You don't like spiders?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head.
Who

"You've got nothing to worry about, honest."
Metakirb

But they're so creeeeeeepy!
Who

"Don't think of them as spiders, think of them as giant eight-legged dragons instead."
Metakirb

That doesn't help...
Who

"It doesn't? You don't like dragons either?"
