The Silver Tongue Tavern

Post by Margurka on Tue Jan 27, 2015 3:28 pm

I sat in the tavern with my drink, reflecting on my new lead on the Guild Leader, 'Naomi' as she called herself.  She had to be a Colagartrune that travelled with Tavarius.  I wasn't aware that the Guardian of Justice had left with him; but the whole thing had been hushed well.  It wouldn't surprise me if the Guardian on Colagart was a quietly promoted Apprentice of hers.

I walked into the tavern alone, expecting to meet Justice here soon. It was unfortunate that I had left my jacket in my dorm, as it could have been useful to block the awful odor emitting from the men in the tavern. I saw two fighting off towards the back. Though I would have loved to join a fight, especially with my new found ability, I decided to keep low and to myself as I waited for Justice. It would be rude for my appointment to be delayed by a pointless bar brawl. By the way Justice had spoken to me, it seemed that she meant business. I took a seat half way into the tavern and waited patiently. I could still feel the tendrils flicking about my back like a phantom pain. I ignored it and sat quietly.

Justice entered the tavern, her good obscuring her face, and swiftly made her way to Jason.

"Good to see you're here," Justice said softly, "I'm sorry I'm a tad late.  I won't offer excuses, we have things to discuss.  First though, I need to know; where do you stand on the war?  The Scourge War"

"What do you mean? The one on Lacie's planet?" I asked.

"The overall war.  When it's ended on Lacie's world, what would you do?  How do you even see it ending?" Justice's veins writhed, "things are moving very fast right now.  I've been given orders to prepare my network for an exodus.  We are leaving on a moment's notice, soon; meaning I won't be able to be around anymore.  That also means you need to make some pretty big decisions; which means you need to ask yourself some important questions.  Like if you could choose how this all ended, how would it end, and how do you most realistically get there?"

"I honestly couldn't tell you where I stand at this point." I admitted. "I want this war to end for Lacie's sake, but this power..." I shifted my eyes around, as if looking at the tendrils that were on my back today. "I wouldn't want this to be wasted. What those dark dragons are doing on her planet I can't blame them for. I've never felt this powerful before, and to just let it die out would be..." I thought about it more and looked back to Justice. "In short, killing each other is going to get us nowhere. Maybe there could be a way to negotiate with the dark dragons, maybe convert others in a more peaceful manor."

"You can use that power for good," Justice responded, "it's harder, I admit; there's a thin line between control and madness, but you can do it."

Justice looked away for a moment as if bothered by her thoughts, the conflicting desire to inform Jason and the knowledge that it'd be for the better he didn't know, were leaking off of her.

"Things are going to be a bit confusing for a while," she finally found her words, "I can't tell you anything significant; but I couldn't leave you without explaining something. The reason I asked about your stance, your allegiance, is because you're going to need to know it, know yourself, and remember those things in the coming days. Things are going to get clouded, and I don't want you to lose yourself. You say you want a peaceful spread of the darkness, you want to use its power for good? Then remember that; and remember ANYONE who threatens that is your enemy. Don't ever forget those values, because one day if things get out of hand, they'll be the best thing to guide you back from the grips of insanity."

I sat back in the ripped leather booth seat. "Lacie isn't too fond of the idea of darkness spreading. I could tell from her expression when she saw the tendrils." I said. "She was horrified. What do I do about her? I can't call her my enemy."

"She is still just a child," Justice said, "and all too few know what good it is capable of, because when bad things happen, people need a scapegoat; and right now, too few know who's really to blame, so they blame the scourge.

When magic first manifested on Colagart, it didn't take the darkness to make people want to use it to kill each other; but on Colagart, being a dragon is still considered a curse. On earth, there isn't even any magic, and yet with the little power they have, they still commit atrocities on massive scales. One day, people WILL realize the scourge is just another power, that can be abused in the wrong hands; but also of great help in the right hands. And at the head of that enlightenment, Lacie will stand. She's a good girl. She wouldn't step away from doing the right thing. You don't have to worry about that."

I thought about Lacie for a few moments, remembering when I met her as a child. The war was just starting then. "Why did The Scourge target her planet in the first place? Out of all of the planets, why did they choose Pruina?" I asked.

"I wish I knew that kiddo," Justice responded, "in all honesty, I want to say dumb luck; but they haven't let up on their assault for a long time. I feel like there's something there. So does Faith, and he lived there, so honestly, who knows. Tavarius hasn't been too concerned with it so my intel is limited. We've been busy with a lead we are sure of."

"Well, Ice planets are typically the wealthiest; could just be the money honestly," Justice continued, "the weather of cold planets like that, just creates the perfect environment for it to literally rain diamonds."

"We fight back," Justice answered, "the only answer to force is force, as idealistic as we all like to be... listen to me, preaching.  I've said all I needed to.  Look, you can't do anything about Pruina right now, so don't worry about it just yet.  Worry about getting to a place where you can do something about it.  If you need anything, I'll be at the Bunkhouse until I receive my orders to leave."

"Relax Jason," Justice began, before elaborating, "I just mean a position of power, influence. Getting up there in the world, becoming someone who others will follow."

I settled down, sitting back in the booth. How can I just sit around and wait? I thought. Lacie's planet is doomed. I sighed, rubbing my forehead.

I waved a hand, not even looking up to see her leave. Something must be done. I thought.

(New day)
"I really need to stop wasting my time drinking..." I groaned to myself, resting on the table surrounded by mugs. I hadn't looked into any of the leads I'd come across for days. Part of me wanted to, but for some reason, I couldn't bring myself to find the motivation any longer. Was it enough to know he was alive? Had I simply let go? Or by Volum, was I going native? I threw my full mug across the room as I cringed in disgust.

(New new day)
Danarius looked over his account statement and sighed. He was somewhat disappointed with this job. The money had been too great to pass up, but playing body guard to an entire school was... boring, there was just no other way to put it. It was boring. Day in, day out, sitting in the Tavern or exercising out in the forest. Luckily it sounded like some Seviis had been running amok for a few years, putting smaller settlements in danger. Maybe he couldd find something a little more exciting to do in the meantime. Maybe he'd go see how the "kids" were doing. Maybe he'd go find a fight to pick.

Chandler walked into the tavern, not particularly worried about being recognized. Nobody from the school had seen him in his human form. He sat at the bar with a heavy sigh. Kingsley could be difficult to get along with at times and today was one of those days. He ordered himself some beer and stared glumly out the window, lost in his own thought.

Glancing out the window and back into my empty cup, a waitress came by and filled my cup with my favorite berry tea. I'm sitting at the bar and my tail was wagging side to side. I stretched my wings and rested my cheek on my hand.
"Training is tomorrow, or is it next moon? Bah, doesn't matter"
I sipped my tea and stared into my cup again

Danarius watched the stranger enter the bar and take a seat.  The man was armed to the teeth.  Probably another warrior.  You didn't see too many of those around here.  Danarius thought he might even be another privateer.  Maybe out of his mind from the boredom, maybe a little drunk, Danarius stammered over to Helix.

"How you doing tough guy?  Don't think I've seen you around here before."
