Endgame


featuring Tzilan, Étain, Ket and nearly everyone else in Windborne!

Winter, Year 760 of the New Age, Windborne, the edge of Gumtree Hollow



The morning was quiet and the wind was still - strange, for a day in the depths of winter. The sky was clear where there should be a thick carpet of grey cloud and there was no movement in the treetops or the grasses. There should be rain and thunder, the trees should be shaking themselves to pieces, and yet there was nothing. Only the sound of marching hooves.

The Alliance, a group held together by the thinnest of agreements, was marching. There were no fawns with them; this was not a migration, not a return to their former homes. Here strode soldiers and stormbringers, hardened warriors and powerful mages and their eyes glittered like steel.

Now, at last, they were strong. They were united, as they had not been before; they were an Alliance in spirit as well as name now. What had been created to claim back some land jealously guarded by the Main Herd had become something more; the attacks by the Main Herd, designed to cow and weaken them, had made them stronger, united them, turned them into a silent storm that would grant no mercy.

Quietly, groups broke away as they strode towards the hollow. Small units of soldiers and stormbringers, working together, would steal towards the herd from all sides as the main force came to them from the front. They would worry at the herd, making them anxious, uncertain until the main group arrived. Until they brought the storm.

The dark figure of Étain, the warrior doe who led the Point, strode ahead of her soldiers, ragged ears pinned back and her head low. Her very presence was a threat and it seemed that she led by sheer force alone. The soldiers looked to her, and it was at her gestures they ran to their tasks. Her second in command, Ket, despite her smaller stature was no less threatening. She walked with the power of the wind about her, lending her magic to the storm.

Tzilan, silent, moved along side Étain at the head. His mane and tail were dark and thunderous, and lightning crackled between his hooves and the ground. He held the storm by its neck, aided by the magic of the stormbringers behind him, waiting until at last it could be unleashed. He could feel the magic enraging it, feel the winds becoming stronger as they struggled against their constraints, and he smiled. There was no guilt now, the aching remorse and pain was buried between a sudden and uncontrolled anger he had never felt before. It was the anger of a hurricane and it filled him completely.

The Main Herd would suffer for what they had done.

There would be no escaping this storm.

    3. Make sure you read what others have written before you add your part in!

    4. Your responses will be included in the next part of the RP (to be posted by mule-deer soon) but remember that sadly not all responses can be included. Sad dummy 

    5. Finally - remember NO POWERPLAYING and inappropriate responses will be ignored.

Alliance Soldiers 
Most of you are in small groups with other soldiers, running around the edges of the Main Herd and making lightning strikes on them! You're seeking out soldiers and knocking them out as quickly as you can before turning tail and running - and then doing it again! A handful of you are staying with the main force to provide some backup.

Alliance Stormbringers
Most of you are lending your magic to Tzilan to support the immense storm that he is summoning and currently containing. You are in a group with Étain, Tzilan, Ket and a handful of soldiers there to protect you should the Main Herd spot you ahead of time! A few Stormbringers will be out with the groups of soldiers, making lightning quick attacks on the Main Herd!

Other Alliance Adults
You can either stay home and guard the babies - or join the fight! Magically strong adults can stay with the Stormbringers and help to summon the storm, and those who are physically stronger can run with the soldiers!

Main Herd Soldiers
AGH! Where did this attack come from? The herd is being attacked from all sides at once, by enemies that disappear just as soon as they've attacked. You knew something was coming, but you didn't quite expect this... and what's this? There seems to be another force on the horizon! Either stay and challenge the attackers, or run to meet the main Alliance force!

Other Main Herd Members
You're under attack! Run! Or stay! Or help with the fighting! It's up to you to keep yourself safe, it seems - so you can either help the soldiers defend the herd, try to hide or just get out of there altogether. Remember, if your fawnling is under 5 they won't be able to help much in the fighting :ohnoes:

Captured Alliance Babies
Something is going on - again! It looks like the guards who were guarding you are slowly going off to do other things, and there's lots of panicky shouting. Now's your chance - either run for the hills or you could try to cause some trouble for your captors!

“M’lord Svetlkin!”

The shout rang across the clearing and was met with a decidedly indifferent silence. Kin was not talking to anyone who called him ‘Lord’ today, least of all some child whose voice broke in the middle of a simple greeting.

He had heard the rumours - he always heard the rumours, even though he tried to keep away - and he was trying to avoid hearing that they were true. Sending a child-guard, as this creature picking its way through the snow appeared to be, was pretty much confirmation without even needing to hear the words.

“My’lord, I have been sent by the King!” the staglet called again, dipping his hornless head in some kind of facsimile of respect when he drew near.

“Well it must be important if they sent a child of what… three? Four? No, you don’t look to be four yet,” he muttered, dropping his head to the snow, snuffling at the frozen surface and starting to scrape away at the ground with a hoof, deliberately ignoring this fool creature and feebly hunting for grazing instead.

There was, to his surprise, an uncomfortable silence for a moment, until the youngster’s breaking voice broke out again.

“M’lord, I have six years and three as a guard!” he yelped.

Now, that got Kin’s attention. Lifting his gaze, but not yet his head, he looked the stagling over more closesly. He certainly didn’t look six - Kin hadn’t been joking about not looking four. He was a lanky creature made all of legs and tail, with no meat or muscle to speak of. And there was the lack of antlers, too.

“Oh?” he asked, before a sudden memory of whispered cruelty bloomed in his mind. “Oh. You’ll be Feddle, then.”

With a disappointed sigh, the middle aged lord straightened up and looked the young Guard Feddle straight in the eye. It was very, very like that foolish King to send Feddle on this task. Feddle and Kin were very alike in one way only: neither Feddle nor Kin fit.

The story went that Feddle had been selected as a companion guard for some Lordlet when he was two or three, as they were, but as it turned out the Lordlet wasn’t a fan, and the chestnut colt had been shipped off to train with the regular guards. Even when he was younger Feddle had been small and unimpressive; the late onset of his maturity had made it even clearer he was never going to make it to the top ranks of the Guard.

There was a lot of rather unpleasant gossip about Feddle - that he was really a doe, that his father had castrated him for reasons unknown, that the Lord he was guarding had castrated him for reasons unknown, that the King had castrated him for reasons unknown… and then a whole host of rumours about the reasons unknown. Essentially, similar rumours to the ones that had dogged Kin as a young stag. Feddle’s problem was that he was trying to overcome them. Feddle’s problem was that he was trying to fit where he didn’t.

It was exactly like Drustan to send this one.

“Yes, m’lord, I am Guardsman Feddle,” the lanky stagchild replied. “I bring marvellous news for you.”

Well, his voice was finally breaking. That would at least prove he was not a doe, even if it did rather reduce the impact of using him as a messsenger.

“Marvellous, is it? Do tell,” Kin replied, blinking lazily.

Feddle straightened up now, drawing himself into the most impressive pose that he could. It wasn’t very impressive.

“The King has decreed that the Princess Myrna, daughter of Lord Yorik, is to be betrothed unto you on the first day of Autumn in the next Year of the New Age, seven hundred and sixty one. Under Oganach’s shelter you shall be wed. Aillté blesses you with her daughter. Earran blesses you with the strength to carry his line,” he announced, his eyes closing with genuine reverence as he spoke the names of the gods.

Kin sighed, and was about to reply before Feddle suddenly, and rather unexpectedly continued.

“The King had these words for you, personally, m’lord. You shall take this betrothal and honour it, and not desecrate the sanctity of Aillté’s daughter. If you refuse this daughter of Aillté, you shall no longer be of his family, and shall be exiled from the Kingdom.”

There was silence between them as Kin, open-mouthed, stared in shock at the child in front of him. Exile? For not wanting to marry a sodding Princess? Did he have no other lords he could punish with this?! He’d heard the rumours they would do something if he refused this one, but exile was really going too far, wasn’t it?

The silence was yawning between them, becoming more and more awkward with every passing second. At last, Feddle finally spoke again.

“Oh, and he also asked me to ask if you understood?”

Shocked and bemused, the little Lord nodded, his mouth finally falling closed.

“Yes. I understand.”

Kin shook his head, sighing, before glancing back to the young Guard.

“Now go away.”
The Bearer of Bad News

featuring Svetlikin


with mentions of Drustan and Myrna


Year 760 of the New Age, Early Winter, Glenmore, Outskirts of the Glenwood




Three Hours Previously...

Genology Lord: "And for Princess Myrna, my leige?"

Dru: "The troublesome one? I think most Lords would not thank me for her. Hurm, how about Lord Svetlikin?"

Lord: "The one that infamously rejected a princess in the past? Are you sure my King?"

Dru: "Yeah, why not. Maybe it'll teach them both some manners"

Lord: "And what if he refuses this one, my liege, it would certainly cause a stir...?"

Dru: "Oh, threaten him with exile or something like that."




So, apparently, a lot of you guessed what was going to happen to Myrna. Kin isn't happy about it either ;)

aaaaah I finally posted this! Tzilan's response to the recent events... and it's just to stand there, looking on. After he set fire to everything last time he wanted to hang back. He's full of guilt, remorse and fear here. There will eventually be a story to demonstrate this. Not now though xP

Happy New Year! And other things

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 11, 2015, 10:55 AM
What with Christmas and New Year I've been a bit busy.. and now I've just started a new job :dummy:

While that's awesome, it's meant that I'm a bit tired and I don't really have as much energy for dA and related activities when I get home in the evenings. As a result, I've not been around that much and I probably won't be around as much until I've settled in a bit.

I will be trying my hardest to answer RPs, notes and comments, and doing my darndest to keep on top of the ever swelling tide of Fawnlings related admin business, but I am not going to be replying every single day. I know some people (particularly relating to admin things) have found that a bit frustrating, but please be patient with me and hopefully I'll be properly back soon :)
