    [end of ch. 3]

    Danica has finally revealed (confessed) that she has magical abilities, and with this, there is a noticable change in her demeanor. She is standing taller, her shoulders are a bit more relaxed, her chin is steady, and she is no longer hiding herself from the world. She is wearing a dark blue silk bouse that shows off her figure, tucked into traveller's pants, with leather boots rising to her upper calf. Her dark hair, still cropped short, has at least been evened out.

    She carries a crossbow at her side, and a backpack over her shoulder.

    Her smile is still there, and there is a spark in her eyes, thatm for some, will suggest ambition.

    [Beg. of Ch. 3]

    Danica is currently dressed as a young boy, serving as a crossbowman. Her disguise is far from perfect, but she thinks it helps avoid attention. She is small and pretty, but this is hidden by the fact that her clothes are plain and not especially clean and she keeps a pet rat. Her hair has been cut, roughly, to shoulder length, but she continues to take care of it.Still, most people would not take a second look at her, which is apparently what she wants.

    But occasionally, she changes. It is sometimes clear, only in passing, that her natural posture is excellent, even though she often slouches. When she smiles, at you, well, it sticks with you for days, as you try to understand what it was she meant by that. And occasionally, when she's mumbling to herself about something or other, she momentarily can seem like the only person in the room.


    [ch 1]

    Danica is a 16-year-old girl who has worked for the past 18 months cleaning up for Randal's Ruffians. It's a job, and she does it tolerably well--her smile means they like her, and generally treat her well, even if she is not particularly good at it. The men joke with her, and have taught her some fighting tricks--self defence, how to use weapons, etc. -- because it amuses them, and she seems to have a good eye for such things. But she is not indentured, and has lately been thinking that she should try something new. Like most of the girls in Fair Creek, her body has been going through changes recently. In Danica's case, though, they have been more extreme: she is a spellcaster, it seems, though this is something she has not told anyone. It's not a secret, and she suspects that Hector has figured it out though he hasn't said anything to her. But she doesn't want to make a deal of it. She has discovered that she has ways of fending off the unwanted advances of the occasional drunken Ruffian, and that has made her job a little bit easier.

    When she hears about the Baron's call for assistance, she decides to offer her services. Danica brushes her hair, puts on her cleanest dress, and presents herself.

    [between chapters 1 and 3]

    More recently, Danica has been working as a courier, carrying messages between the various factions of this temporary alliance. Much of her time has been spent alone, waiting for a message or for a reply that she is to bring. This work has expanded her horizons immensely--even in seeing the camps of other races, she has been introduced to new aspects of life. On her own, though, she has felt her magic developing. It will not be easy to keep it secret much longer, she thinks. She feels the powers of life, but with them comes the powers of unlife. This has her scared, but she is emboldened to see what she is now capable of.

    Rix is a runt, but a brilliant and talented runt. He stands a meager two feet in height, although if he stretched his double-jointed legs out, he might make two and a half. His limbs are long and spindly, his finger tips reaching almost to his knees. His scales are like polished steel which has been rusted and pitted, a subtle glisten remains. He carries a small backpack, a longspear and a light crossbow. Covering his eyes are a pair of smoky goggles. A yellow bandana runs around his reptilian forehead.

    Brilliant, shy and coordinated, Rix is thoroughly sure of his ability to deal with whatever comes his way. Whether if thatís by knowing when to run away, or when to take advantage of the situation, heís capable of it. The loss of his clan has left Rix without the social hierarchy and structure that heís used to, something which he yearns for. Preferring to keep out of the midst of any conflict, he prefers to set traps and then ambush his opponents from afar with his crossbow. He has a misplaced dislike for the typically brutish orcs, blaming them for the fall of his clan.

    Recognized as a dragonwrought egg before he was born, Rix was taken, as all dragonwrought eggs are, to the holy shrine to be blessed and born there. Recognized for his incredible intellect and aptitude with things mechanical, he was trained by the local trapmaster. He picked up his teachers skills incredibly rapidly, learning about placement, concealment, anatomy, and all other manner of clever tricks and schemes.

    As all kobolds grow incredibly quickly into maturity, his apprenticeship was nearly finished by the time his clan made an agreement with a local orc tribe for providing iron and other metals for weapons and armor. Charged with the duty of protecting the mines along with the others of his clan, he set to work setting up razor-wire, fusillade and the occasional deadfall traps.

    The kobold clan began to flourish with the gold lining their pockets from the orc tribe, but soon the orcs came to resent the dragonkin for their wealth. With their envy, the orcs started demanding more and more of the kobold clan for less and less compensation. Noting this, the kobold clan decided the agreement had reached its end and cut the orcs off from their mines.

    While the kobolds felt that it was the appropriate end to a business deal, the orcs were insulted. They harassed any hunting parties or expeditions that the kobolds set out on. Slowly the food supply dwindled, yet their population was still growing. They decided that a number of them would set out to populate new locations, dig new mines and forge new communities.

    Rix remained behind with his original clan, destined to become the next trapmaster. He continued his work in the mines. The orcs however had other plans, enlisting the aid of goblinoids they laid a network of

    Combat Preferences
    Rix prefers to avoid melee combat at almost all costs. If anything he'll resort to using his longspear from behind a meatshield (ally). If he gets closed on, he'll Withdraw (35 ft. speed) or Tumble away. He will try to work anything to a tactical advantage (cover, concealment, high ground, rough ground, etc.). If he can he'll attempt to maximize sneak attack potential (hit-and-run hide tactics with his crossbow preferrably, although flanking with his longspear works too). He always focuses his attacks on important figures letting his companions deal with lackeys (spellcasters are often his primary target). He uses his small size to his advantage, he is only 2 ft. tall basically so will hide under tables, chairs or get up on the top of dressers, beams, etc. He likes putting something between him and his enemy that keeps his enemy from getting to him, whether that's companions, rough ground, a wall, climbing whatever.

    Basic Story: Born at a small hamlet in middle of the forest where his mother moved to give birth to a half orc, in search of a medium where said kid could fare better. When she left he was still young, and was left under the care of the local priest of the Huntress, a man who went by the name of Ravil. Alexander trained as hunter for the hamlet, and everyso often did scouting assignments requested from Fair Creek. One day, after a week's scouting he returned only to find the hamlet in ruins, the shrine desecrated, everything he had known burned and brought to floor level.... and the corpses gnawed upon...
    Aberrations under the command of the enemy stormed the hamlet, undead, those who corrupt the undending cycle, as the Huntress taught it. He picked up two things, a broken blade, which he affixed to his left wrist with a leather cord and some leather to protect his flesh, and a holy symbol of Artemis, which was still held by the amputated hand of whomever.
    *He has a brownish mark on his throat, reminiscent of a near encounter with death at the jaws of a wolf.

    Constrictor snakes hunt by grabbing prey with their mouths and then squeezing it with their powerful bodies.

    Constrict (Ex)
    On a successful grapple check, a constrictor snake deals 1d8+10 points of damage.

    Improved Grab (Ex)
    To use this ability, a constrictor snake must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict.

    Silas' history
    Silas Eyrstan, known as the Caernite, was born amidst blood and tears in the town of Fair Creek to a mother who did not long survive his birth. Weeks later his father, a skilled stonemason, returned to Fair Creek from the Dorinthian capital where he had been employed in making repairs to the High Temple to find his wife buried. When the midwife placed the robust baby boy in his arms he found he could hold no resentment in his heart but only love for his child.

    The next years were tough. A succession of cruel or indifferent housekeepers left Silas disinclined to leave his fatherís side and the elder Eyrstan disinclined to forbid his son anything if it were within his power to provide. Luckily, Silasí only desire was to be at his fatherís side. Throughout his childhood Silas learned a fair amount of the stonemasonís trade by doggedly following his father as he travelled the lands repairing the great structures of Dorinth or building new architectural wonders.

    It was the intent of both father and son for Silas to apprentice in the stonemasonís craft. That is, until the elder Eyrstan was hired to work among the crew expanding the keep of Baron Karadore. The stonemasons were instructed to salvage stone from a nearby ruin. Silas found the ruin a site of endless fascination and spent countless hours roaming through it. Fascination became near obsession when young Silas discovered runes carved into the walls deep within the ruin. Though the runes were totally foreign to him he spent hours studying them, tracing their shapes in the dirt, and finally begging, borrowing, or just plain stealing what paper he could to make rubbings of the runes before the stonemasons could come to take the stone.

    Totally absorbed in the making of one of his rubbings, Silas was discovered (and, quite frankly, nearly startled out of his wits) by a short fellow, stocky as stone. The fellowís irritation and gruffness melted away when he discovered Silasí passion for the runes and it was only a short time after that Silas was able to convince his father to apprentice him to the odd scholar.

    Silasí apprenticeship was one of excited discovery. Language, history, architecture; the scholar encouraged Silasí passions for it all, provided method for the young manís researches, and awakened and trained his latent talent for manipulating the forces of magic.

    Years passed, his apprenticeship ended, and Silas became known (in a very small circle, however) as a promising young Caernite scholar. He married, had a child of his own. And then disaster: the Tallione Empire invaded Dorinth. Unable to let other men bear the brunt of defending his family and country, Silas charged his aging father with taking his wife and son to safety in Fair Creek and set off to war where his education allowed him to take the position of adjunct to a low-ranked officer.

    After Dorinthís Last Stand Silas wearily made his way to Fair Creek only to find the town deserted. In exhaustion and despair for his family, Silas collapsed. Found by one of Radnalís Ruffians, Silas was led to the refugee camp in the Silver Forest where he was reunited with his family. With the looming threat of the Tallione and their dark allies, Silas will do what it takes to find a safe haven for his familyÖ

    The Shield of Kings, small Shield +2 of arrow catching, can be activated 3 times a day for a +4 charisma bonus that lasts one turn. 
    The shield is round, and small; something fit for a warrior on horseback. Around the edges, in script amazingly similar to that used by ancient Dorinthians, are the words: 'The King of All Men' along with engraved laurels. A portrait of a man wearing a breastplate and furs has been hammered into the center of the shield, the exact bearing of a willful and handsome warrior-king from the old barbarian times before Dorinth was ever established. What is more stunning is that the face is an exact twin of Commander Sassarius.

    Appearance: Dartis is a young man whose bearing has all the hallmarks
    of his aristocratic upbringing. His blond hair is short in the manner of the archers.
    He keeps a sword by his side as he tends to be too close to the enemy when he runs out of arrows.

    Background: Dartis was the youngest son of the Baron of Kalnian,
    a small Barony located in the south. Like his brothers Dartis was raised
    to join the cavalry. He was taught to ride and shoot at a young age. When
    he reached majority, Dartis joined the army just as all the Kalnian's had
    before him. But unlike his ancestors, times were troubled and the Tallone
    were always a threat. Dartis was stationed on the southern border and
    watched for Tallione incursions becoming involved in minor skimishes along
    the border. The real trouble began when the order came to move north to
    quell the riots. Dartis was glad when his commander told them they weren't
    moving as he didn't believe that they should leave the border updefended to
    support the corrupt rule of Rasnen. Once the Tallione invaded soon after
    things changed, Dartis was first and foremost a Dorinthian and he would
    defend his country from the Tallione. His unit was pushed back, and further back.
    The losses were very hard and his unit was disbanded and he was reassaigned
    to a unit from the small town of Fair Creek. This was a small bit of good fortune
    for him on a foul day as he found out that after a long seige his father's keep
    had finally fallen in the south and his family slain.

    Dartis was there at the Lost Battle of Kalden and followed his commander back
    to the town to report the massacre. Dartis rode his horse so hard getting back
    the the poor beast that hea had had since he was a boy, died from the run, But
    the warning was sent. Dartis followed the town watching over the
    migration and awating orders from the only current leige he had, Baron Dorin,
    on how to proceed. Meanwhile he lost most everything he had in the flight from
    Kalden, but his weapons he had with him.

    I am a soldier, as was my father before me, and his father before him. Legionaire's all, we did battle as men, on foot, face to face with our enemies. Our lives for the Empire.

    I was born while my father was away, fighting for the glory of Tallione. He was there during the during the final push of the last Dorinthian War. He was one of the few who made it back at all, even if he was no longer the man he used to be. Often in my youth he would sit by the fire at night, looking at the space where his leg should have been and he would tell me tales of his service. The battles and the glory, and the terrible losses that the Dorinthians wreaked upon his comrades. It was always my destiny to follow in his path.

    When I came of age, I entered the service of my Empire. The night before I left my home to begin my new duties, my father took me aside and handed me his sword. A legionaire's sword, decorated with the Tallione eagle. It was the sword of my grandfather, blessed by the gods, an heirloom of the Ventus line. Not a noble's weapon, not gilt or jewels adorn it. It is the sword of a soldier. Sharp. Made to be used. I wore it with pride as I joined the legion. Two years later I marched for Dorinth with the sword at my side.

    The war seemed to be in our favor at first. We marched on Dorinam as conquerers, and quickly defeated their weak king. But the people themselves proved more of a challenge. As the war continued, our losses increased. True to my father's tales, the Dorinthians were fierce in battle. I reveled in the conflict, eager to prove myself on the field of battle. But as the fighting grew more fierce, I began to notice changes in the character of the legion. Discipline broke down, and often the troops were allowed. . . or encouraged to commit horrible deeds in the name of the Empire. This was not two armies meeting on the field of battle with honor, this was not the way of my father.

    I stood victorious at the Battle of Kalden. The fighting had been fierce, and our victory won at a terrible cost. But we had held the day. After the battle though, the mood turned dark. My fellow soldiers, and the officers meant to be their guidance, all turned upon the civilians and refugees. The innocent and the helpless were slaughtered. . . in the name of the Empire. Sickened, I turned away from the massacre and tried to flee. My commander noticed my motion, and moved to confront me. We argued over the bloodshed, and I decried the legions' atrocities. He drew his blade on me and I was forced to defend myself. I left his body on the field of battle as I stumbled away in a daze. I gazed down at the blade of my sword, red with blood, Tallione blood. I had betrayed the memories of my father and grandfather. . . or perhaps the Empire had betrayed their memories . . . or perhaps both.

    I found myself alone, outside of the town, covered in the blood of my own comander. I threw aside the trappings of my service. The shield and the cape and the spear of a legionaire were all cast aside, but the blade stayed with me. I could not bring myself to abandon it. I replaced my shield with that of a fallen Dorinthian soldier and fled into the night. I had no direction, and no concept of what awaited me, but I could no longer return.
