Lost along the road

Post by Mana Link »

Even with Sara leading, and being on one of the main roads, somehow Al and the others managed to stray too far off course and found themselves lost somewhere between Dragon Scale and Dragon Eye. Due to the nature of their current predicament Al called for a full stop so he could check the map to see if they could find their bearings.

"How can anyone find their way around in all this green? Everything looks the same to me!" He exclaimed exasperatedly. With Flaim it was easy for foreigners to get lost in the dunes, but even the constantly shifting dunes of the Storm and Fire desert would seem more pleasurable than the dank, moist forest air to the two Flaimites.

"I think I saw a farming village a little ways back, master Al." Ellaine piped up. "Although that may have been hours ago, and I'm not sure if it was on the map. I also swore I saw a tower to the west a shortly before we...lost our way."

Almelchaya grimaced and ruffled up his hair. "West...west...which way is west exactly?" Al was frustrated at being lost on his first trip to Moss.

Zylanthian Baratoice, by contrast, was at home in Moss. Unfortunately for everyone, a blind man was useless in identifying the area around him. Moss was not the dynamic landscape that some others were and the old man not a good enough hermit to identify the land by soil.

"If you wouldn't mind being led about by the blind, sir Knight, I may be able to find you what you need..."

Aroal looked to the sun, peeking out from behind the trees. It answered Al's question, but she would have to translate; "That way is west," Aroal jerked her thumb to her left.

"Oh." Al grumbled. I should have realized that. He helped down Zylanthian from his horse. His ego couldn't possibly be more bruised than it already was, so getting led around by a blind man might as well lead them in the direction of some semblance of civilization. "Lead the way Zylan."

ooc there's the tower to the north west, and a small farming hamlet about an hour's walk north.

Zylan lowered his head, looking down at the ground with his eyes closed. "Good Madame Nature, pick up on the wind the warmth and smell of the closest hearth for these old bones to rest by..." It sounded more like shamanism than the magic of humans, but the smell of wood burning assailed the nostrils. The smell of fresh baking followed.

"Huh..." the old man huffed. "Two different directions," he muttered. The wolves were examining the distinct scent trails, easily navigated even without the accuracy of a canine sense of smell. "Baking or fire burning. It is up to you, sir knight."

Mieijha sighed inwardly. My preference would be the baking. Where there is baking there is usually accommodations, and that means a bath, possibly. Oh, bathing, how I long for your soapy caress of my skin, to ease the aches of these bones and fill my body with warmth.
Miejha is sweet
Lilly is hot
Penna is seductive

Sara stuck her nose up in the air and tried to catch a whiff of the sent, but was unsuccessful. She started roaming around the group try to find it, until one of the horse broke wind.
She fell flat on her butt from the shear smell of it.

"Well I guess my nose will never be as keen as it was." She said rather randomly.

Aroal chuckled slightly at Sara, then tried to sample the air herself. She couldn't smell smoke at all, which was to be expected. "Well, I vote baking," she replied. "If there's a town, then we can get directions."

Al nodded. "Yeah, good idea. Wood burning does not necessarily mean 'helpful people' are around it. Lead the way towards the baking scent, mister Zylan."

Following the lessons he learned from nature, Zylan pointed about down a side road towards the direct north. Though he could only give a direction, they pressed on through whatever obstacles got in their way. Eventually, passing through a large hedgerow, they found a quiet hamlet. A few houses, gathered together, and made in the same fashion, surrounded a tiny town center and what looked to be a small temple. "Scones," the old man declared, taking a big wiff. "Someone is baking my favorite tea cake." He turned his head back to no one in particular. "Does it look hospitable, good knight?"

Al looked around. While there was the smell of baking it seemed like no one was outside to greet anyone. The streets, what little could be called streets, were as silent as the wood around. In the outlying forest there was very slight movement, but no songs of nature or sounds of man were to be heard from the huts. "It's too quiet." Al growled lowly. "Regardless of the time, there should at least be some people out and about. Ellaine, dismount and guard Myel and Mieijha. Sara, scout around the outskirts of the village but stay out of sight. Aroal and I will start checking houses. Zylan, I'd prefer if you'd stay with Ellaine and the others, but if you'd like to seek out the baker, take them with you. I trust that if the scones don't smell burnt, then the people here wouldn't have gone far, or not left the village at all." Al stated, and waited for any complaints from the group.

"I think I'll take to the hunt, myself. Old habits die hard and my companions itch to be on the prowl." Concentrating for just a second, he informed Ludwig and and Wolfgang of the concerns. In a second, they were front and center at his side. The old man almost fell out of his saddle to get out, shortness of old age made him feel more like a dwarf on a dragon than a man on a horse.

Patting each on the head, and nodding without a word, the wolves turned and ran off through the hedgerows. "Fine ladies, shall we dine?"

Aroal nodded to Al and silently went about the duty of searching. She took the closest door in town, which seemed to be a residence and knocked on the door.

OOC: So, is the town deserted or are people just hiding?

ooc: If I step ahead feel free to edit my post.

Sara took off quickly and quietly. She roamed the tree tops as only she could. Her eyes were steady and sharp.

Then she saw it, a path had been trampled from the forest to the village. Sara wasn't sure what did it just yet but the pattern was violent and chaotic. She decided to stay put for a while to see if anything would emerge.
