    Sands of Time IC Chapter 1:Shadowpuppets

    Post by Draded on Wed Jul 29, 2015 8:38 pm

    The world is pain and a ringing in your ears. Staggering, you hit something, hard, and careen to the ground, knees sinking into the blood soaked sand of the arena. Blood drips from a viscous head wound, sizzling as it makes contact with the sand, the supernaturally hot liquid filling your mouth. You hear, faintly, the screaming of the crowd. " JELNI!JELNI!"

    I brace myself the best I cant, and will myself back to my feet. I gaze around for any opponents. I struggle though, noticing that it is hard to see through my right eye. Cautiously, i bring my sword back up, readying myself to continue. "It's all part of the adventure" I mutter to myself.

    Your gaze for your opponent is guided by the sounde of clanking chains. Stinking of blood and what you think is grog, the half orc is 7.2ft of tattoos, muscle and rage. Your eyes, however, are on the 6 foot chains he has in each hand, metal welded onto the links and sharpened to a razors edge. He grins, bearing the charisma of a death grimace. He wears no armor, hide a mass of scars and burns. The circles the 15 foot pit, dragging the chains behind him, murder in his eyes. Above,  the crow roars and a man robes of garish colour comments on the action.Poor Jelni dosen't know what he's in for ladies and gentlemen, because the crowd is roaring and you know how that gets Gruzugs blood up

    "Jelni's just gettin started" I breathe to myself, as I dash in towards the towering orc. I plunge the rapier towards his left shoulder, in hopes off rendering his arm useless.

    Your blade sinks deep into the flesh of his left shoulder, blook spilling from the wound. The chain falls from his grasp, but not before he punishes you with a viscous slash of his chain.

    I duck below the chains as I hear it whistle past my ear. Using momentum I plunge upwards towards his right arm.

    Too close now to hit, he drops the chain as your blade sinks in, pulling you into a vice.

    As he pulls you closer, you feel the hot warmth of his blood mingle with yours, and the stink of his breath is hot with some drug, pupils dilated madly as he pulls you into a death grip.

    Your mother always warned you about coming here. You now understand why. Youre surrounded by the haze of pesh and the stink of sweat, but can only look at what can only be called murder. A young ifrit, desperately struggling to free himself from what you, as a hunter, recognize as a death latch. The crowd screams for blood. If both of them die here tonight, the better that no one pays bets for the show

    You have no idea why the proprietors of your travel south would contact you in a pesh den, but they specified the Dragon Lung, so here you were. The duel had become ugly, with no ending other than a tie being plausible. Fortunately, the den was dark, and you could watch unafraid of anyone spying your... unique traits.

    I had come to the arena originally to check if they had any records of previous sylph contenders. Mother had said long ago that my father left toward the big city after their hook-up, and surely there aren't too many adventuring sylphs out there. It seemed reasonable to me to start here, but the large drunken men at the entrance were far from helpful. After I had asked they sat there stupefied by my questions until a burp seemed to jump ones brain. He told me there was a sylph fighting right now.

    "He seemed too drunk to be lying. That just leaves stupid." I sighed and rested my hand on Duscaes head. His ears were back and his face betrayed how distrustful he was of the men around. His eyes were locked on the dangerous looking fellow down below and a low growl emanated from his massive jaws, nearly drowned out by the commotion.

    I went to turn away when I had a thought. What if he knew a sylph? What if he knew my dad? I mean, it's not like I could ask him right now, or ever if he died here. But I can't exactly jump in, right? What was dad's name even..?

    My thoughts were cut off as the atmosphere changed slightly. Where was Duscae? I turned just in time to see him jump from the railing.

    "Well, shit."

    I reach my gloved hand into my coat pocket and withdraw the sealed letter that had beckoned me to Katapesh. The blackened envelope is sealed with an ebony wax seal depicting a serpent like dragon. "But a week has passed since The Shatter, and they have managed to find me? Not even a week, letters take time to travel by courier...its almost as if the Pactmasters predicted that I would succeed and timed this letter as if to reach me the day of The Shatter." I return the envelope to my coat pocket and continue to gaze around the Dragon's Lung, paying little mind to the fighting. "Barbarous fiends. Is this what Katapesh holds? Plebeians unenlightened by Academia and vulgar with ale and spirits?"

    I stand, pushing up my darkened spectacles to veil my eye. "Katapesh may accept many breeds of man, and the many quirks they bring, but I must be careful, still. Bigotry is still common, albeit frowned upon in these desert straights." As soon as I stand, a great tiger leaps just past me, inches from my face. Startled, I fall back into my seat, my tea spilling over the side. "Gods!"

    In between the feeling of my ribs being crushed, and the air escaping my lungs. I notice something vault into the air from the stands. I hear the screaming of the people getting louder, and louder. almost as if its a roar? In between breaths I spit out"What tha hell?"

    Duscae leaps down into the dueling pit, making his way towards the dying orc gladiator,leaping mid stride to imbed brutal curved claws into the orc, throwing him off balance and causing him to release Jelni in a spasm of pain

    Feeling the tension release I stagger away coughing. I spit a wad of blood to the side. I begin running towards the orc " Time to die ya bastard!" I angle myself to the left of the animal and thrust my sword towards the orcs head.
