Age of Retribution Part V: The "Special" Force

"What a coincidence! That happened to my family and friends before!" admired Miller and began a dramatic story, "Many times ago and still happening today, the kids rebelled against their parents about eating dinner first before dessert! Because they had no patience to wait to eat their sweets, so they sneaked to the kitchens and eat their sweets first before their parents tell them to eat their meat and vegetables! And then after that...they all got punished. The end!"

"Eh heh, yes. Very nice story my good man," the hooded fellow replied, not sure of the polite way to respond to that.

"He's not good, he's my uncle," Naeleen corrected him.

"So what leads you to these parts," Gort asked as he sat down at the table.

"Just passing through," the man shrugged, "On my way home from a job, really. How about yourself? Family holiday?"

"Yes... we just finished visiting a few family members," Gort sighed.

"That was after the revolution," Naeleen said as she bit into an apple.

"Yes... the revolution where the kids decided to eat their pastries before supper. Which reminds me; Naeleen, you're grounded. Now off to bed."

"My inability to fly is not a reason for me to go to bed early," Naeleen countered. "But Al probably needs my help, so... goodbye!"

She grabbed a few more rolls and ran up the stairs.

"Heh, children, am I right?" the man laughed as Naeleen disappeared up the stairs.

"Well, alas Naeleen. You're now at the part of being punished." Miller replied softly.

"I'm what!" Naeleen yelled as she stomped down the stairs. "Okay, who's punishing me? I demand an explanation and a trial! And a lawyer! AL! I NEED YOU! RIGHT! NOW!"

"I am only licensed in Westinburg!" Al shouted back from upstairs.

"You hear that!" Naeleen snapped at no one in particular, "We're going to Westinburg! Now if you'll excuse me, I must go discuss the case with my lawyer!"

She then stormed up the stairs in a fury.

"I'm sorry," Gort said, returning his attention to the man, "You were saying?"

"You wouldn't happened to have seen a blind girl lately?" Gort asked after a moment of thought, "She had a walking stick, and was heading... away from here."

"No, I can't say I ha-- oh! Do you mean the Witch of Tau? I passed one on the road to from Westinburg this morning. An odd sight in these parts for sure," the man mused, "My guess is she's in the city by now."

"Oh great, Westinburg..." Gort sighed, then looked back at the man."You said she was a Witch of Cow?"

"Tau, one of the more obscure of the southern gods," the man shrugged, "The witches are even more obscure than their god too. Doubt anyone would know about them if it weren't for their involvement in the war."

“The war? You mean the last Veridean war?” Gort asked.

"Hmm? Oh, yes. My apologies," the man laughed, "In the Acrylia, if you say "the war", everyone knows exactly what you're talking about. Heh, twenty years gone and they still call it "the war"! You'd think there'd never been another any other!"

He laughed, then took a deep swig of the bottle of tankard of ale on the table in front of him, before wiping his lip and continuing.

"Come to think of it, you seem the type to have fought in a few wars yourself, Master Halfling. Any interesting stories to tell?"

Gort stared blankly at him, "My name is Gort, and I am a leprechaun."

The man immediately smacked himself upside the head.

"Forgive me! Force of habit you know? We call your race halflings in the south," he then said.

"Don't worry, but you might want to watch that now that you're in Noverth," Gort said, "What's your name again?"

"Appreciated, and you might call me Lux. A pleasure, Mister Gort," the hooded man replied, finally pulling back said hood to reveal youthful, fair features and shortened elven ears (probably indicating he was only half-elf).

"The pleasure's mine," Gort said, extending a hand toward the man. "So then Lux, will you be staying in the area long?"

"No, I'm afraid I won't be. I'll be setting out again as soon as my partner arrives, which could be any minute now. I'm simply attempting to pass the time, as it were."

"I see," Gort said, "Well if I may offer a word of advice, people in Noverth aren't as accustomed to the ways of the Acrylian people, so be wary of who you trust... and don't step on any frogs."

"Don't step on frogs, eh? And why might that--"

Just then, there was a loud pounding on the door.

"Ah! That must be my partner! COME IN!"

The door was suddenly kicked open, and a hulking giant of a man, decked-out in full plate armor, burst into the building. His heavy greatsword was held in ready position as he turned and faced-down Gort and the others, posed to strike.

"You do not appear to be held captive," the armored individual deadpanned in a deep, baritone voice.

"Hm? No, I'm afraid I am not," Lux responded, standing up.

The armored man looked between Lux and the others in the room, then at the feast laid-out on the table, as well as Gort's position seated near the half-elf.

"We've talked about this."

"So we have, and we may talk about it again on the road!" Lux waved his hand, "Well, Mister Gort, I'm terribly sorry to have to cut-out on our conversation. You and your compatriots seem like quite the charming family. Alas, my friend and I are have a long journey ahead of us, so we must be setting out immediately. Do have a pleasant rest of your evening!"
