OOC: I apologize for my tardiness. Had a server crap out yesterday and
it's been a fun 24 hours...
>> "Alex, one of them is Oz alright." she says over the radio. "But those
>> others, they don't look so friendly.
>> Over the loudspeaker, Louissa says "Tell you what, on the count of
>> three, Ted and the guy in your ATV will both point the railguns into
>> the sky. Is that okay, Ted?" she asks.
>> In the midst of all of this, strange man on the tower stairs takes a quick bow
>> " I am Miles Sebastian, entrained and magician extraordinaire! My
>> companion is Thodin the Stout and we are at your service. We came down
>> this stairwell chasing a shadow with evil intent but are so glad to
>> see you. Where might you be heading and would greatly appreciate any
>> assistance you might be able to lend us in our journey to the next
>> civilized town."
>> Mile makes an elaborate flourish with his hands and bows again.
>> The Dwarf bows slightly, then turns to his companion and says "Friend
>> Miles, I think we may have just stepped out of a bee hive into a
>> hornet's nest."
> Oz didn't look in the man's direction, but he did say over his helmet
> loudspeakers, "Now really isn't the time."
>> The Borg turns to Oz and says, rather loudly so all can here, "Clearly
>> some of these people know you, Knight. That being the case, why are
>> they aiming their gun at me. This does not some at all the kind of
>> reception I expect from the King's friends."
> "I am going to be very unhappy if I get shot because you two can't
> follow simple directions." Oz turned and pointed at the gunner on his
> ATV. "I don't care who does it first, but you're going to point your
> cannon away from them now or I am going to come up there and throw you
> out of that seat." He looked at the Borg.
"Point the gun away." Jacek growls to the man at the railgun. "And
keep it that way... unless they open fire."
> "We're here to kill the monster who killed your people." He gestured
> at Louissa's ATV. "These aren't them." Oz turned back to Louissa, Alex
> and the rest. "But that would be easier to demonstrate if you would
> come out. This is their village and you're threatening them when
> they've just heard that something is here killing their friends. Let's
> not turn this into a fight when we don't need to."
> "I saw your evil shadow very fast , you are in the Kingdom of Camelot
> if you wish safe haven that place is as good as any. Keep your wits
> about you though Miles and Thodin the entire realm here is fighting a
> war against slavers."
> Vesper looked to Oz, "I would speak with you about that monster."
> He waits for the weapons to be turned away. Then walks over, "It
> seems that it was none other then the little girl that had been in your
> groups company though that is just a guise for something much worse."
> "I am not sure why we took her / it with us either," Alex responds. "I
> don't really have that clear an idea on what is going on."
> Miles is a bit bewildered but listens intently to what is going on.
> "Slavers you say?"
> He looks back from Thodin to this new company.
The Dwarf nods. "Aye, the Splugorth, friend Miles. I think we have
much to discuss with these people, but this seems a profoundly awkward
place and time."
The dwarf turns to Alex. "M'lady, I'm afraid Miles and myself are even
more confused than you. But we do know something of the Splugorth
> Oz shook his head. "My group? You were with them when I picked you all
> up in the forest. In any case, I think we can all agree we're not
> friends with the monster child who eats people?" The German turned
> British knight gestured at the full-conversion borg.
> "This is Jacek. This is his village. He'd like to know why you seem to be
> attacking it. Please tell me you aren't actually attacking his village."
Louissa turns to Ted. "Point the gun down." she says.
She looks back at Oz. "We didn't attack the village." she says. "Your
Borg friend's mates kidnapped me, held me hostage, and Ted came along
to rescue me. We saw the carnage, and I confess, we used the
opportunity to grab a vehicle to escape. We met up with Alex and
Vesper and managed to stop the creature from killing anyone else."
"Whatever your business with this Jacek, the Hood and anyone else at
that village, Oz, I just want out of here. We didn't kill anyone."
