'So this is the Baron... Interesting... I thought he'd be taller.'


I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE STUCK WITH 6'2. Not even gonna lie though, laughed out loud when I read that. Good post Grizz!
If y'all wanted to do a big collab post in the pirate pad I think that wouldn't be a bad idea, just to get a lot of the dialogue out of the way!
Now if only some of my Owl homies could post >:(
@Emma Welcome back! Not too much has happened, just trying to rally everyone at the tavern! Looking forward to having the Owls unite 乁[ᓀ˵▾˵ᓂ]ㄏ (that's an owl)
Happy New Year all! Looking forward to seeing where our characters go next.
The pursuit persisted through the winding streets of Ardent's Fall, with Ser Merek becoming visually winded. Though he wasn't out of shape, per se, the baron certainly had an aversion to long runs, especially down crowded streets of drunken men and men making merry; he'd much rather be amongst their ranks than scrambling through the city on a wild goose chase. Still, he needed that damn letter. No way he would be turned to ash the moment he met the woman of his dreams. As he doggedly persisted after the thief, Merek noticed him swipe a coin purse from a tall figure with blazing red horns sprouting from their head, a bold move on the thief's part. It took only a brief moment before his fellow victim gave chase after the fiend, in a notably much swifter fashion than Merek. The slim, tall figure fell back to his ragged pace for a moment to exchange a few words, it seemed, though once the baron saw her face, these words went in one ear and out the other. By the Gods...

The lithe woman was a tiefing, there was no doubt, and a rugged, yet beautiful one at that. Merek had met only a few in the past, though they left a strong impression upon him, especially the wild one with whom he shared a room with while on his travels. Though all their majesty paled when compared to the one before him. He was too enamored with the woman's flowing ebony hair, sweeping, gorgeous horns, and her graceful stride upon powerful legs to take in all the words she spoke, but he picked up bits and pieces. When she held up her hand, though, he saw the same scar that marred his own, and someone else's who he barely remembered. His eyes widened, though no words came out of his mouth, only panting. The two rounded a corner after the thief, certain they were close to catching him, only to realize the man led them in a giant circle around the city and returned them to the crowded town square. He was gone, slipped into the revelry of the festival. Merek was almost grateful for this, as any more running would have left him crawling on the ground gasping for breath, an embarrassing position to be in before his new tiefling muse. Even so, Merek bent over and took a few deep breaths, hands placed firmly on his knees. After a moment, he looked up to his red companion and spoke, trying to compose himself as much as possible. "Oh, that devil stole a letter from me, but it doesn't really matter right now," the baron panted, standing up straight. He had a strange cadence and accent to his deep voice, like a southern peasant attempting to sound like a nobleman, though a low one at that. "I was told I'd be lit aflame without the letter, though if the last thing I see before turning to ash is you, that fate doesn't sound as terrible anymore," the baron mused with a sorrowful grin.

Merek was rapidly composing a sonnet in his head as he took the tiefling's scarred hand into his own and gave it a gentle kiss. Skin like setting sun... Elegance of.. Deer? No, no... Something horns... In his frazzled state, he settled for an introduction. "Sir Merek the Brave, Baron of Ashenfield and Champion of Armond, at your service." The baron reached from his belt and handed the tiefling the small coin pouch he'd gathered from his stunt on the square before the thief made off with his letter. "It's not much, but I hope it'll make up for some of what that damned thief made off with."

Before Merek could launch into another round of flirting, he spotted a familiar face on the side of the street, a door freshly slammed in his face. "Well well, if it isn't my old friend, Bram!" Merek shouted out as he approached the man like an old friend, both arms outstretched for an embrace. In truth, the two had brushed shoulders in the past, in a few royal courts and business dealings, though they were far from old friends. In Merek's world, however, he knew no strangers, and everyone was an old friend. He hugged the nobleman in an aggressive bear hug and left him with a heavy pat on the back. "Care to join my friends and I at Minnie's? We're trying to solve the mystery of the scar," Merek asked jubilantly, showing the strange scarred glyph on his ungloved hand.
Merek watched as the thief dashed away with his enchanted letter, mouth agape like much of the crowd he’d gathered. It didn’t take long for him to stumble down from his makeshift stage and begin sprinting after the barefoot rogue thoughtlessly, shoving his way through the dense crowd. Even though he didn’t know the contents of the letter, he did know that there was a good chance he’d be incinerated if he didn’t follow its instructions, a fate Merek very much wanted to avoid. The throng thinned after escaping the square and he dashed after the hooded figure, barely able to keep his eye on the short thief through the crowd. Merek’s already tenuous focus was further drawn from the task at hand when the rogue jostled a rather fetching, though bewildered, blonde woman during his escape down the narrowing alley. Time crawled to a stop, as if the gods were blessing him a longer glance at the specimen before him. Her long, golden locks flowed through the air, shimmering from the light of the dying sun. Eyes brighter than a full harvest moon that seemed to burn through the rabble of the busy street and lock with his own. Her modest dress served only to further accentuate the natural beauty of her body, for even the finest silks and linens in all the land couldn’t outmatch this goddess.

This is the woman I marry.

In a grandiose, overly-chivalric movement, Merek swept the staggered woman into his arms as if she were a dainty flower in danger of blowing away with the wind. Everything was lost in this moment for Merek; no thieves, no letters, his only concern was what he held in his arms as his eyes eagerly absorbed every inch of her being. However, this eventually lead to her hands, and his eyes couldn’t help but soak up something in the palm of her hand. A scar, very much like his own. The scar that threatened to incinerate him. If he didn’t have something?

The letter.

The words that came out of Merek’s mouth weren’t nearly as charming as the sonnet he’d been composing in his head, but they served roughly the same purpose. “Minnie’s Tavern! Later! Scar!” With these scant words, Merek righted the girl and dashed off after the man in possession of the letter that might dictate whether or not he turns into ash.
@GrizzTheMaulerWhat do you mean by introduced?
@Avanhelsing You might want to get your character down to the main square to enjoy the festivities like the letter suggested, and then you notice the commotion Merek and company are causing. He might catch a glimpse of one of their hands with the same scar he has, and then join the chase to talk to them.
<Snipped quote by Avanhelsing>

You guys are wayyy too tame, imo! ^_^

On another completely unrelated note, Merry X-Mas errybody!!! xD


I'm not sure what you mean by this but I will fight you to the death to defend Merek's honor >:(

@shivershiver
Your character is a treasure to this rp and I intend for best friendos between him and Bram. Because opposites are hilarious.


Goddamn right, we could totally pull off a Don Quixote/Sancho Panza dynamic. Bram totally despising Merek, and Merek totally oblivious and believing them to be best friendos.
