Thokk's Lands XX

Far from the town there is a small coastal village.  It is quaint and unremarkable save for a single thing.  Over looking the village is a magnificently large castle on a hill.  These are Thokk's lands.

At least they were.  Currently the castle and surrounding fields are controlled by Nadine and her kids.

Nadine and Elyea live here.  They're rather sweet.

Somewhere around here Dei and Jeska live in sin with a teenager.  Good for them. Not anymore they don't! She buggered off.

----

Ary looks at her now bitesize sandwich.

That's a little too small.
Who

"Bleh. My magic must be out of whack or something."
Metakirb

But you feel okay, right?
Who

"Yeah I feel fine."

She sits down, chowing down on her giant sandwich.
Keledrath

(As my first post in a new iteration thread since my return, I felt it necessary to make this one epic.)

Anglor eats his sandwich.
Metakirb

Ary godpowers her sandwich to decent size and starts eating her own.
Who

Much sandwich eating is done then. Elyea merilly bouncing on her chair all the while.
Metakirb

Are you sure you're okay?
Who

Elyea smiles, Ary's adorable when she's worrying.

"Yeah I'm fine. Hey didn't you have a dragon or something?"
Metakirb

Yeah! I hope he's okay.

She gets up and goes to look for him.
Keledrath

Anglor will follow her out.
Who

Elyea watches her go, still chowing down.

----

Ary'll find her terribly ineffective bodyguard lying in front of the castle, the occasional twitch of his tail the only sign of life.
Metakirb

She tries to heal him with her god powers, though she's not very good at using it for healing.
Who

With a groan is eyes, slowly open.

"Did we win..?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Good..."

With that his eyes close again, loud snoring emitting from his snout.
Metakirb

Ary smiles a little and she heads back inside.
Keledrath

She'll pass Anglor on her way in.
Hold for a moment. There's something I need to talk to you about.
Metakirb

Yeah?
Keledrath

You and Thokk were friends?
Obscurejones

The castle audibly groans.
-------------
Since I was a young girl.  Why?
Metakirb

Ary nods a little.
Keledrath

He's dead. I didn't like it, but I did it to protect the innocents he terrorized, and given the choice, I would do it again.
Metakirb

Ary tries to move past him.
Keledrath

Anglor won't stop her, but he will follow her.
Metakirb

She heads back to Elyea.
Keledrath

Anglor just follows her.
Metakirb

Before she gets to Elyea she stops.

Quit following me.
Keledrath

No.
Metakirb

I said quit following me. If you persist I'll make sure you can't.
Obscurejones

The castle begins to move between them.
Keledrath

Anglor looks at the castle.
Don't.
His attention returns to Ary.
I owe you a blood debt, and until it is repaid, I wil defend you with my life. The last time I ran from my actions, it nearly cost me far more than I knew I had to lose. It will not happen again.
Metakirb

I don't want your protection. Just go away.
Keledrath

What you want is irrelevant. You have my protection until the blood debt is repaid.
Metakirb

Get this into your thick skull. I don't want you near me, I couldn't care less what you think, but if you stick around You can pay this stupid "Blood debt" By emptying yours onto the floor. Don't even think about following me any more.

And with that she starts walking again, putting up a barrier behind herself in Anglor's way.
Keledrath

Anglor follows, and collapses to dust, reforming on the other side of Ary's barrier. And following.
Metakirb

She spins around and fires a blast of divine energy at him.

I gave you your chance.
Keledrath

Anglor leans to the side, avoiding the blast.
Metakirb

It detonates when it gets level with him.
Keledrath

He doesn't flinch as a barrier of stone appears to shield him from the blast.
Metakirb

I don't give a damn what you think. Stay away from me.

She starts walking again, throwing up another barrier.
Keledrath

Anglor continues to follow, dusting past the barrier again.
Metakirb

This time he won't be able to dust past the barrier, as soon as he tries he'll be forced to reform with a debilitating headache.
Keledrath

Failing that, Anglor simply vanishes, reappearing on the other side.

(Planar travel through a plane that is actively helping him bypass Ary's barrier)
Metakirb

Except he'll still be blocked and he'll still get the headache, she's a goddess. He isn't getting past.
Keledrath

(And at the moment, Anglor is the functional avatar of an elemental plane. That puts them on par, and on said elemental plane, Anglor has home field advantage in a major way. but whatever.)

Anglor looks at the castle.
Let me through.

(I actually kind of missed bickering about the capabilities of our blatantly OP characters Razz)
Metakirb

Ary heads back to Elyea, looking very angry now.
Who

Elyea's feeding crumbs of sandwich to her familiar as Ary walks in. The mini-jaberwock flaps over to Ary, burbling cheerfully.
Metakirb

She walks past birdie and over to Elyea.

When you get a moment could you ask your mum to tell that moronic new barbarian of yours to leave me the hell alone before i break his skull in?
Who

Birdie lands on her shoulder, burbles some more.

"Um..sure. Are you okay?"

----

Rabbit shrugs.

"Just wondering."

He thought Nadine's childhood hobbies would be more in line with torturing small animals and throwing rocks at the other children.
Metakirb

He won't leave me alone!
Who

"Come on, we'll lose him."

Elyea heads for one of the doors leading out of the kitchen.
Metakirb

And Ary follows.
Who

With a few twists and turns they'll end up back at Elyea's room. Birdie returning to his perch.
Metakirb

Ary sits down and sighs.
Who

Elyea sits next to her with a bounce.

"Come on, cheer up. He's not getting in here."
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"So you're in control of that claw now?"
Metakirb

She nods again.
Who

"Awesome. What can you do with it?"

Birdie flaps back over, landing in Ary's lap.
Metakirb

She shrugs.
Who

I Ary doesn't want to talk Elyea's fine with that, petting her familiar as it chirps for attention from Ary's lap.
Metakirb

Ary smiles a little and joins in petting him.
Who

That's one happy jabberwock, burbling cheerily at all the attention.

"You staying tonight?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Obscurejones

Anglor will find the castle cheerfully leading him in circles.  Any further attempts at Planar travel will also fail.

Y'all may have OP Characters, but I've got me an OP setting. Cool

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

So, what do you need?
Who

"Nothing. I just wanted to spend some time with you."

----

Elyea shrugs, flopping back on the bed.
Metakirb

Ary continues petting Birdie.
Keledrath

(Sorry about the slow post, big news! see happiness thread for details)

How is it that a building is this manipulative?
Obscurejones

Had the castle shoulders it would shrug.  As is, it just subtly rumbles.
Keledrath

Aren't you made of stone? Why is it that you aren't subject to the Elemental Plane of Earth?
Obscurejones

A mirror slides into place.  The castle's nondescript communication face appears in it.
I'm made of stone like a painting of an apple is made of fruit.
Keledrath

I assumed that was the reason. Now, why don't you let me do my job?
Obscurejones

Your job as you see it at the moment is to creepily harass a young girl.  The reasons for its prevention would seem self evident to someone with a better grasp of social grace.
Keledrath

I am doing nothing more than paying my blood debt to her. Once it is paid, I may leave.
Obscurejones

... How is such a thing repayed?
Keledrath

When I lay down my life in her defence.
Obscurejones

You are a silly little man.  What if you need your life for something else later?
Keledrath

A voice eminates from some pebbles near Anglor.
We shall return it to him.
Obscurejones

Well that's quite helpful.  Also, my cleaning subprograms must be out of joint.  Apologies.
Keledrath

Not really. Anglor tends to have pebbles on the ground around him. They're a bit like the dead skin constantly flaking off of your body, except they come from the scars.
Now will you allow me to repay my debt?
Obscurejones

Soiently.  Just not right now.
Keledrath

Anglor grimaces.
Then can I at least go back to the kitchen? I'm still hungry.
Obscurejones

A door pops open to the kitchen.
Keledrath

Amglor goes through and resumes eating.
Obscurejones

He should have access to anything he wants, up to and including whole animals.
(Btw, congrats on the scholarship.)
Who

How are Elyea and Ary doing? I'm sure there's only so much fussing they can do over Elyea's freaky pet.
Metakirb

Well Ary's starting to look tired.
Who

Birdie flaps off back to his perch.

"Need a nap?"
Metakirb

Yeah.
Who

"You can stay here. That weirdo might still be outside."
Metakirb

Thanks.
Who

Elyea moves off the bed to give Ary more space.

"I'll keep it down."
Metakirb

Thank you.

She lies down on the bed and closes her eyes.
Who

And Elyea is as good as her word, sitting on the floor and reading.
Metakirb

Ary wakes up several hours later.
Who

Elyea's still there, leaning against the door and...I don't know, Painting her nails?

"Hey sleepy."
Metakirb

Morning...
Who

"You okay?"
Metakirb

She nods and stretches, yawning.
