  1. Enk headed back outside to grab something for the quick hunting trip. He already knew all his stuff was in order and he wasn't worried about the short period of time that passed. Checking the front of the wagon Enk looked under the seat and grabbed his mace; just a regular, tapered mace for self defense. It sure helped crack the skulls of crooked con-artist. He thought about grabbing the mace and heading inside, but he thought that would be a rather odd thing to do since people might get the wrong idea. It would be awkward to go inside and not bring anything but he thought it would be better to head inside with something. He tried to think up of something that he could take inside, plotting to pick up the mace on his way out. There was no concealable weapon or something with a sheath to take with him. He didn't even have a knife for cutting because he has been using the great-sword in the wagon to cut just about anything he could hold in his hands. Papers, meat, wood, chains, locks, sometimes even lifespans. The weight proved to be hinder to use in battle but the sharpness was something Enk wanted to be able to replicate one day, something that could just cut through armor as if it were a a tissue. After pondering a bit about what he would bring he though he might as well just bring his time dial and canteen in his satchel. Enk felt a like the satchel was a bit empty and in the way, so he just took out the time dial from the bag and instead pocketed it so that he could keep track of the time. After all, he wanted get food for Luke and move on with the day, he could imagine the hunger that his companion had after what seemed like a rough night. Enk headed back in to the Rebellious Rose Inn and took a look at Luke. "I got what I need. I just want to keep track of time, I imagine after the waking hours there are all sorts of hunters out there." Enk said. Maybe there were a few early birds that would already be there but that shouldn't matter too much with the size of the forest out there. @LukeRipstine
  2. "Not to worry, I won't be getting in the way." Enk said, assuring Luke that he wouldn't be in the way. If he was hunting for a meal surely it was something that he would be able to either eat in one sitting or preserve for a few days. As long as it wasn't some horrendous creature it isn't like it would be something out of the ordinary for him. "I should probably should grab something from the wagon, for my sake." Enk mentioned. He really didn't think the mace would help much against a wild animal but it was sure better than being bare-handed. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  3. "So does everyone go hunting around here or something?" Enk asked, noticing the pattern. Perhaps Luke was from here, or maybe not but it was worth asking to see how much he knew about the area. It was pretty interesting to see that Luke was capable of surviving on his own. That sword must see the light of day pretty often. And that made Enk think about how he was just rather decent in the woods. Sure, he knew a bit of fencing and archery, but not enough to survive off of or defend himself from some of the gnarly bandits that roamed the land. Enk was curious about leaning how to fight a bit better as well, deep at the back of his mind. He was always thinking about how much more he could do if he knew how to fight, going so many more places without worry, being a much better caravan in general. "You mind if I come along?" Enk said shyly, a bit worried that he might be a bit of a liability. Maybe the subtle suggesting to meet him at the Library was a way for Luke to announce him going alone, but Enk felt that he might be able to benefit from the observation of Luke's swordplay. @LukeRipstine
  4. Enk could tell that him and Luke had more or less a similar response to the situation. Perhaps it was one of those areas where there was a grey area, just a haze instead of a clear line but the overall concept. Regardless Enk was looking forward to going to the Library today. Perhaps a capable pair of hands and eyes were lost, but it wasn't something that taking a bit of time to look through couldn't do. For some reason Enk's curiosity wondered why exactly Luke might want to go to there. He figured whether it was to help people, for personal benefit or just for adventure it would help a bit in the direction of what to look for. "So did you check out the food?" Enk asked, curious if he had already exited while he was outside or passed a while ago. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  5. Luke seemed to have already been some distance down the hall, almost as he had elusively slid through Enk's busy mind. Luke commented that a friend passed by and tried to get her to leave, expressing that he rather not meddle in the situation. Enk grew slightly concerned. It could be a friend, or it could be a foe. Sometimes being an adventurer had its downfalls, like bounties and the innate enemies made from the results of the choices made or the consequences of bad decisions. "A friend you say?" Enk questioned. Then again who was he to get involved in the affairs of others? It might be more trouble trying to find out than to just let it be. But Enk wasn't about to lose his head for someone he just encountered. "I guess I could see your point on not wanting to get in the middle of things though." Enk responded. "Maybe I am thinking of it too hard, I just wouldn't want anything bad to happen, you know?" He spoke, trying to subtly suggest the possibility of something not being right. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  6. After taking a moment to think Enk decided to go get a plate and come back. It seemed like a pretty basic inn breakfast, with a few meats probably being rather fresh from the forest. Not exactly the what Enk was in the mood for, so he just took some of the muffins and eggs to eat in the peace of his room. On his way to the room Enk noticed the room was still open, and still felt a rather odd amount of energy in there. He felt the presence of the two before, but this was either more entities or one or both of the growing in power, and that was something that could make the trip awry. Enk knew Luke was likely to have some hidden power, but if he sounded slightly fatigued then perhaps it wasn't him, but Andromeda instead. With the plate in hand Enk nudge the door open a bit more to nice that they weren't inside the room. He could still feel their presence, and he "Is she doing alright?" Enk asked. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  7. Hearing Luke respond from the room was something unexpected. Luke sounded a little beat, maybe a rough, restless night . Or he was interrupting something that he shouldn't have. Who knows, maybe he was there all night and kept Andromeda company, he would like to imagine. "Well, I guess you guys might want to see what they have there since I'm not too sure what you might like. I'll wait for you guys there." Enk shouted back, seeing as how he was either far into the room or in the bathroom. Enk picked his jug back up and headed to his wagon to put the jug back. Some of the people in the lobby looked at his a bit odd as he wobbled carrying the moderately heavy object, a ceramic water urn was probably obsolete in this day in age but it was the way he preferred, to remember the way it was done traditionally. The graphics on the side depicted a ranger with a bow feeding the animals and another ranger with a sword in one hand and magic in the other. The ranger with the sword seemed to either be using his open hand to heal a fairy or receive magic from the fairy, Enk really wasn't able to tell. Within a few moments of reflecting he had already reached outside, and it was still dark. He went into the back of the wagon and put the jug down, with its weight gently rocking the wagon a bit. Prepared to go on his trip Enk headed back inside and went toward the lobby area to take a seat for a moment. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  8. From inside Enk could here speaking, which was distinctly female. He wasn't able to discern what was said but he could sense a rather strange energy from inside the room. It was a bit odd since Enk wasn't too sure whether he should check inside or continue to call out and possibly be disturbing the other guest at the Inn. He leaned towards the slightly open door, almost as if he was going to poke his nose in and take a peek around. "Hey, I think the Inn might have breakfast if you want to come." Enk announced, waiting for a response. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  9. Enk made it outside and looked at his oxen still sleeping, in what would be the start of sunrise in perhaps less than an hour. He climbed into his wagon and hastily grabbed the jug of water to take it back inside. Oddly enough at this hour he could hear the people who were still in the pub. Perhaps not as lively as before, but people still were having their chattering and having the occasional laugh. Maybe there was complimentary breakfast though, for the early birds. It was worth checking out in a bit. Heading back to the room Enk walked to the sink in his room. Enk place the opened the top and placed the mouth of the urn at the faucet and angled it since it was just slightly too big for the sink. while waiting he brushed his fingers through his dense hair. It was a bit mangled from the lack of care but the hair itself was fine and smooth, like a silky spool left hanging around. A few light strokes later and his hair was a bit more flowing, and he turned off the faucet. The jug was about three-fourths full, and he didn't want to over-fill it and make it too heavy to comfortably carry. He closed urn On his way back outside Enk noticed that the door of Andromeda's room was open. It was pretty odd considering that she was the first one to go rest. Perhaps she was in a rush and didn't close the door, but he didn't recall it being open in the night when he went to bed. He was sure Luke would've closed the door while he helped her get to the room. He put the urn on floor and cupped his hands over his mouth as if to project his voice toward the door. "Anybody home?" Enk asked, from outside the door. He learned not too peer in, considering her temper at the Tavern over the chair. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  10. Awakening from a nice rest Enk laid down for a bit, not really wanting to get up immediately. It was a bit odd to Enk that he rested for four hours and feel well rested while a lot others needed a full eight hours of sleep. Perhaps it was one of the benefits of being an Elf but it also put him in the awkward spot of waiting for establishments to open or for people that he was travelling with to prepare, so he usually slept a bit later to speak with the folks at night. Occasionally he would sleep when most did and he would wake up early to prepare, but that usually didn't take a whole four hours to do. With what he had learned from the night before Enk knew he should really get a map of the town and add it to his pack. It would be a pretty helpful thing for the future. Maybe Luke was familiar with the place, so it wasn't too much of a priority but he wanted to get on later. Enk wasn't sure what the place had for breakfast but he was in the mood for some onion bread. A nice little treat with some ground meat, whether it was beef, venison or some other red meat from a four-legged creature. He decided to go fill up on water, so he walked out his room and towards the entrance to go to his wagon for the jug. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  11. After a while of the fellows making their way out Enk had a feeling that the second fellow was seen recently as well. It was likely that he saw the familiar faces in the Tavern, since that is where he met Luke and Andromeda and where the staff of the Inn traveled to. He found it a bit odd that the staff would be travelling to another establishment but it could just be to re-direct the crowd towards their own place, which would make a lot of sense. Whether it was transporting goods or finding someone who owed their debts, Enk was sure he could hear out an opportunity to travel and work. It seemed like the people of the town were self-sufficient. Many built their own homes and hunted for their own food, which meant that the typical and mundane help probably wasn't needed. They defended themselves against the creatures of the forest, and the occasional wanderers from the deserts up North, there probably wasn't much they needed locally. After getting an idea of what is around town Enk decided that he would go and rest up. The Library was sure to be something that would take a lot of his day, and he wanted to that he wasn't tired and able to focus. The town could be looked at later after they went and searched through the library if they had time that day or perhaps within the next few days. There was no rush, afterall. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  12. Enk laughed at the comment made by the second fellow entering in. To see the urgency in. It seemed like people were familiar to each-other around here and that he would stick out like a sore thumb but he knew with a little bit of time the suspicion around him would fade. "Oh no, I didn't even get to ask if you were thirsty." Enk commented, a bit disappointed of the short encounter. He still wasn't exactly able to figure out were he had seen the fellow but it would have seemed to make sense if it was in the Tavern, considering that that is were he met Luke and Andromeda as well as were the staff for the Inn went. To think that the Inn had a portal somewhere was a rather astonishing to Enk. Many towns had portal stations, but for an Inn to have on directly in it was something that he had heard about but never seen. It must've been a special venue for it to have the resources and need to make a portal, and that was something that just sparked curiosity in Enk's mind. "Wait, there is a portal in the Inn?" Enk shouted, trying to catch the angel before he left. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  13. Within a a few moment Enk felt someone draw close and a slight gust followed. "Have we met, good fellow? Your face looks more familiar to me than the doors of this building."The fellow said with a grin. Not exactly the toothy kind, but more of a sly or prideful one. "Passing wind I see" He said, jokingly, making the situation as light as possible. The thin-haired blonde man had a sense of grace, in a way which Enk could not explain. It was almost like seeing an angel, but with webbed wings rather that feathered ones. He felt like he had seen the man somewhere. "Met, perhaps not." Enk responded, trying to recall. It could've been any number of marketplaces which he visited within the last few days, but he felt it was rather recent. "Perhaps I've seen you around though, you do seem familiar. Do you do a lot of travelling?" Enk asked curiously. @Victorious @Crossbone @LukeRipstine
  14. Enk noticed Andromeda seemed to be in the struggle to get walking, possibly from all of that walking through the whole day.Luckily Luke was there to help carry her, and with what seemed like more-than average strength he was able to lift her up. Enk might've been able to lift up a person in such a way, but to be able to swing her around and carry her like he was cradling a baby was a pretty coordinated effort with his movement. With the two already heading towards their rooms Enk thought it would be a good idea to check out what the locals might have to say about the area. Sure, the time might have to sacrifice a bit of rest it would be well worth it for finding a bit of loose change around. With the courtesy of Luke paying he thought it would be fair to help him make back the expenses of the night. Enk walked to the bar close by and checked for a bartender. It was a bit odd to see a person or two with drinks but a bartender to be nowhere in sight. "Hey, where is the bartender?" Enk asked one of them. It seems like he wasn't in a stable mindset but he was able to ramble a bit about how some of the folks who ran the inn headed to the Tavern of Legend. He thought it was somewhat ironic, but while inquiring about the drinks he was able to find out that someone was still running the inn while others were gone. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
  15. Enk looked at Luke and tried to lighten the situation. "Maybe it takes a while to change back. You know how complicated magic can be sometimes." Perhaps it was better to settle down and enjoy the scenery. The stone building he stood in front of seemed like it was the work of the people themselves. No architect or experts, just a normal sort of building that was from the hands of your average laborer. Although it might not have been as grand as the tavern it certainly had its charm as a welcoming place. It was pretty odd that Enk had never anything of the place. He didn't meet anyone from here on his travels, nor did anyone he ever spoke to mentioned it. It seems like Luke was the first person to bring it up, and even then there wasn't too much said. For somewhere so new it seemed like it had to be rich in history and resources to have risen in such a short time. Perhaps people were getting tired of the towns and gentrification was genuinely making the city life much harder than it needed to be. The comfy town in the woods would have been a perfect getaway from that kind of lifestyle Or it could have been as simple as the area being rich in some resource itself. Perhaps there were gems and metals that the people aimed to covet, or the wildlife was rich in variety. If logging was a popular thing around the area maybe he could see if there was something he could trade or do for a bit of repair work on the wagon. "Maybe we should reserve the room for her. She can go in when she is ready" He suggested, trying to be courteous and considerate. @LukeRipstine @Victorious
