Dark Fairytale IC

Kalveen moves through the house and exits out back. His scampers from shadow to shadow until he gets to his lord.

"Awake lord," he whispers and nudges the man.


As he passes he "marks" on of the children so he can track it.

Stealth = [roll0]

Casting Hunters Mark on one of the kids for the tracking bonus!

Wake Colember

Kaleth watches the square. The haunting music floats through the air and he scans for it's source. As he scans he turns to see Kalveen approaching. He turns to the man.

Have you seen the source of the music? It is not visible from this angle.

He watches as Kalveen awakens Colember. He hadn't even noticed that the man had dozed off. He chides himself and returns his attention to Kalveen.

"Aye, a creature both man and beast, a satyr I think." Kalveen whispers. "I have marked one of the children with a spell to help me track it. They should lead us to the missing children."

Colember is roused as the group move silently towards the man goat. Passing the children shows them to be giddy skipping along smiling even trying to stifle gigglez.

Tracking the children and remaining hidden is easy, the second the children hit the woods the begin to laugh and scream doing cartwheels, clearly they are having fun the satyr walks at a leisurely pace in front of the pack.

After around half an hour there is a clearing in the trees all the children rush towards it as they approach lights flicker into existence and music begins to play. As you draw closer to the clearing renaming a little further back where the trees are denser to not be seen you see an odd scene unfolding.

There is a large darkwood table covered in a brightly coloured cloth with stools sized for children. Then there are toys Rocking horses, spinning tops, wooden swords and shields all manner of things, perhaps the most important thing there are the four children waiting you can only assume are the missing children.

Leonan comes in from the side and remains hidden.

He is good negotiator and would prefer this to be non-violent encounter, not the least because the kids might see some violence. The fey doesn't seem malicious, he may just need some company although it's not clear why he would keep the kids from returning. But still, they are here to resolve the mystery and return the children so that's what they will do.

He settles down to see what happens when the play time is over. He remains vigilant of his surroundings, it wouldn't do to be surprised when he's the one doing the surprising.
OOC:
If you imagine the clearing as a clock with the party coming at 6, Leonan is somewhere between 8 and 9, no further than 10 (depending on available hiding places)

"It might be best to wait a moment, lord," Kalveen whispers. "However, this doesn't bode well and may require action sooner rather than later."

The children continue there party for a couple of hours and a women finally appears they all stop and sit down cross legged in a circle waiting in anticipation.



The new comer straightens her long white flowing dress, moves her long black hair out of her face before sitting down. As soon as her bum hits the floor the children erupt in a mass of noise."Tell us the one about the witch. No no the one with Azabalachean. No no tell us about Sir Geoff"

OOC: Ill pause here just incase anyone wants to jump in. Any position is fine the woods are fairly thick.

The names seem to be children story characters the kind meant to teach leassons. Azablachean was a dragon who lived atop a mountain, his greed lead him to always want more until one day when he was asleep the weight of his horde caused the mountain to collapse killing him. Sir Geoff was the greatest Knight in the kingdom but his pride lead to him being defeated by a simple farmer.
 
Kaleth watches the scene. Something is not right and he suspects that thing might turn quickly. Kaleth prepares himself to intervene if any action is taken to harm the children.

Leonan looks at the scene in wonder. But then remembers this is fey business. He focuses his will trying to see past any glammer faun might have prepared to avoid unwanted followers.

OOC: You have to realise, there is no spoon

The scene unfolds a story is told of a wizard who was killed by his own simulacrum and no one noticed for years. The children go back to playing as the sun begins to rise it looks as if things are coming to and end and everyone looks as if they are getting ready to leave bar the missing children, they appear to be staying with the woman.
