The mercenaries rode on without another conflict. They exited the forest and rode out into the grasslands as the sun fell at their backs. Ahead of them, vibrant green spring grasses mixed with dead, taller winter grasses. Large boulders, short trees, and bushes rose in scattered places above the grass.

"Looks like it be time to break camp," Anisa told Ultarik.

Alm hopped down from, the back of Toan's horse and kissed the dirt. "LAND!!" he exclaimed loudly. "I love you, don't ever leave me again!!" He lay on the ground completely sprawled out. After being on a horse for so long Alm craved the non-moving earth.

Ultarik stopped his horse when they reached where they would camp, the grasslands were a welcome sight to the rough terrain of the initial part of the shortcut they had taken. Where would he have to lead them next, what kind of path would their journey take that fit with the plans of the wizard he was helping.

"Finally, a chance to rest. Still we're too open, we should take turns standing watch tonight."

Coras dismounted and helped Ooke down. "I'll take first watch." he said clearly. He went over and kicked Alm in the side. "Get off the ground all sprawled out and make yourself useful. Get some wood for a fire or something."

Ooke touch the floor and kneeled down for a second. He then stood up straight and planted his hammer into the ground. “I will help Alm gather wood for a fire, and take darkest watch.” Ooke said. He knew he need to make a sacrifice tonight and the wood gathering would give him a chance to find a small woodland animal, the darkest watch would allow him proper setting.

Alm scowled a little at Coras's rough treatment of him. "I'll go get some goddamn wood you mudwallowerer." He got to his feet and grabbed Ooke's hand. "Let's go get some wood to make Coras happy. Maybe we can find some goblins to skin as well." he started to pull on Ooke's hand to get him away from Coras and get the task he was awarded with done and over with.

Ooke gripped Alm's hand tight but didn't move right away. He then let go of Alm's hand and began his walk in to the woods with Alm. "Yes goblins; that's what I would like to run into." Ooke said softly while thinking of the proper thing to kill for his next sacrifice.

Anisa hopped off Ultarik's saddle and watched Ooke and Alm go off together. Even though she didn't care much for the annoying grassrunner, she realized that he could probably be helpful. The way Ooke dragged Alm off almost gave her chills up her spine. Something about Ooke chilled her to the core.

However, she wasn't the one to spend much time worrying. The half-elf turned her attention to setting up camp. It was obvious this road wasn't used often, and there were no used campsites. There was a large boulder near the road, with a few stunted trees and bushes nearby. The boulder seemed like a comfortable object to have in camp, so Anisa strode over to it.

A crow was perched on one of the twiggy trees and it stayed put until Anisa walked too close. The bird flew away, but oddly, it landed on a tree only a short distance away, on the other side of barely worn road. It kept it's attention focused on the mercenaries. It felt eerie. Anisa was starting to feel the sense of dread Brahms mentioned earlier.

Granite had quickly scrambled off of Brahm's horse, and almost fell on her butt in the process. The dwarf woman was glad to be back on her own two feet, as were the other two members of short stature in the party.

She watched with disappointment as Ooke and Alm went off together. She worried about Alm, at one moment he was acting like a playful child, and at another he was as cold as ice, or screaming in terror. She shot Coras an icy glare after Ooke and Alm walked off. He treated the grassrunner terribly and she was sick of it.

Dismounting soon after, he noted his horse wasn't particularly happy. Not that he blamed it to much for it. Patting the horse lightly on the nose, he watched as Ooke and Alm ran off to get fire wood. He didn't like the way the dwarf had said 'darkest' shift. Not likely he was going to get any sleep after that.

Tying a horse to a tree, he noted Anisa was watching something. On closer inspection, it was a crow that... wouldn't fly off. Crows were intelligent birds, linked as harbingers of death, and often used by wizards as familiars or scouts. Although his rational mind told him the creature just wanted food, his irrational mind told him to get that bird out. "Shoo! Get out of here!"

He said, waving his staff in the air, and kicking at it. He had no real will to actually harm the creature, just in case it was the former. When it didn't fly away, he stalked after it. Under his breath he chanted a prayer to Cha Za. He wasn't a priest, but hopefully the deity would listen just this once. "Cha za, god of fortune... smile upon us and drive this creature away..."

Alm went off with Ooke, but as soon as he was out of sight of the camp, he spoke to Ooke. "Coras wasn't himself for a little while. You did it, didn't you?" Alm started picking up sticks that could be used for kindling. he kept talking. "I'm sure the others can't hear me right now, but you can. Watch what you do. There are few precious things that can escape my means." He shot a glare to Ooke. "That means you, as well, and whatever, or whomever you serve, be it light or dark, life or death." Alm went silent again and continued to pick up sticks. His nightmares were haunting him durring the daylight hours as well, and it wasn't something he wished revisited, at least, not now.

Ultarik saw the crow and did not seem unnerved by it, instead he went about normally, making sure that he made no contact with it so that it could do its job.

"I'll take third watch, allow me to get some sleep before we move on. After that last incident I am going to make sure we are not attacked before dawn..."

Karla had her eyes and ears here, he was the guide and the crow was the spy. Things were going to be interesting, very interesting.

OOC: Coras called first watch.

IC: Anisa watched as Brahms tried to further drive off the unnerving raven. It finally flew off towards the forest they had left, but Anisa had a feeling it was still watching.

The half-elf turned toward the campsite. The place she selected was grown over, so it would take some preparation. They couldn't have a fire in the grass, after all. She took hold of a hand full of grass and began to rip it out of the ground where the firepit would be.

Ooke smiled, “You caught me good. I told you that I could tell you be a strong one.” Ooke had no reason to hide from Alm if he already knew the truth and it didn’t seem to bother him. Although he would tread these waters softly because he wasn’t sure how much Alm knew. “Now that you know, what is it you like to do about it? Would you like to learn more? How about, how? “ Ooke tried to draw more from Alm as he gathered larger stick and kept his eye on a near by squirrel.

Watching as the bird flew off, he frowned lightly. Even animals used to humans wouldn't be that calm, something was most definately with that creature. Maybe it was the dwarf, the manifestation of a great many things he mistrusted. Watching the place where it had flew off, he half expected something large with many teeth to come out. When it didn't, he sighed.

While Anisa cleared a place for a fire pit, he himself just stamped out the grass. When it was flat enough, he brought out some of his supplies, which consisted mainly of food items. He wasn't fond of the idea of hunting, especially with that bird around. And bread and salted beef didn't need much to eat. Fires were optional.
