Shadi tries to keep her eyes on the darkness surrounding them. Rashad has the man covered, and if it's to be fight with him then the weight of numbers will tell.

But right now, there might be a dangerous beast creeping back to take advantage of their distraction. Better that someone keep watch!

His father cuts in at that point, "Three days," he grunts, "That's what hospitality buys you and not a moment more. After that you sleep in the woods if you mean to continue haunting my lands."


Ru-ude.

"Believe me, we would like nothing more than to see this matter wrapped up within three days." >_>

Leufroy groggily mutters a prayer. "Jesus, I will arise. Do thou accompany me? Do thou lock my heart into thine? And let my body and my soul be commended unto thee? The Lord is crucified. May God guard and protect my senses so that misfortunes may not overcome me. In the name of God the father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen! Now, my lady, you wouldn't happen to know how we got here and by whom?"

After turning from her cousins, Adele runs into Lady Ermeline. "My Lady, you haven't happened to have seen Sir Leufroy?" Not waiting to hear what the Lady has to say, Adele tells the Lady "Stay back!"

Dagobert draws his sword, cautiosly eyeing the knight - mindful of Rashad's warning.

Rosamund's Fate

The tide of kobolds seems neverending, though they just can't seem to overwhelm Rosamund or Hecate. Right when it starts to look as though the little buggers were rallying for a renewed attack, a strangely soft, sibilant whisper can be heard from above. The kobolds flee in an inelegant mess, opening a path that leads up to a cave. Inside the cave, sitting at a simple table swirling what looks to be a glass of mulled wine, a man bathed in pure shadow waits.

He stands, moving closer, a nebulous hand extending from the dark pausing just short of caressing the young knights' chin. "Ah, you've arrived... finally. I've been waiting so patiently... You look like your mother, has anyone ever told you that?" she hears, more as a wisp of memory than a voice. "I knew her, once."

Hunt for the Devil Wolf

The meal is filling and once the lord leaves for his chamber they bed down in the hall for the night. Eingar junior, as his father's seneschal, also has his own room away from the guests and bachelor knights. Though its apparent after a few minutes of darkness that most of the knights are married after a fashion as the hall fills with the sounds of marital duty.

After the post meal entertainment finishes it is long hours until midnight before any significant noise is cause for concern.

And though it is minor Renier, bleary as he is, notices Ulfgar furtively passing through the hall and out toward the gate.

The Jewel Knight

Despite the clear advantage the knights have, and their prowess, the knight fights on undeterred. Having been knocked down and repeatedly bested, he continues to react as though possessed by a great need. It's not until Rashad sunders his shield that the combatants see any difference in the fellow knights' reaction as he throws down his sword and dives for the jewel, doing everything in his power to maintain his hold on the precious item.

Adele and Ermeline

With the young heiress in hand Adele turns back toward her companions and after no more than a dozen steps she hears clashing steel ahead.

Its almost loud enough that she fails to hear footsteps and turns just in time to see Lady Gisele stumble out of the forests. Her dress is torn by thorns and brush and her breathing is heavy and fast but she otherwise seems to have escaped any harm. There are no obvious scratches or injuries that Adele can see.

"Oh, Sir Adele, I am so glad to have found you, quick, we must get Ermeline to safety."


Leufroy and the maid

Nothing seems to be happening once his prayer is finished aside from a sharp pain in his lower back as he sits up. Its unlikely he'd be able to run with his muscles beaten and bruised as they are. But when he shifts he sees a flash of silver in the firelight and quickly realizes that he has been thrown down on top of a reliquary box.

It is made of pure silver engraved with a crucifix and has a simple latch. As he lifts the cover he sees it is nothing else but the golden pendant that holds the finger bone and hair of Saint Marcius. His fingers brush against it for a moment and in that instant he can feel the pulse of the forest around him.

In the south he hears the baying of wolves answered by a terrifying roar that could well be the call of the Devil Himself. Much closer he hears the snore of a bear as it slumbers through the night in a nearby cave, its belly empty.

Renier rubs his eyes and stands up. The three knights walk out of the hall and after Eingar Jr as quietly as possible.

The robber knight takes no more notice of Rashad's questions than a wild beast, and attacks with as much ferocity and less restraint, continuing his mindless assault no matter how many times he is knocked down and without heed to his wounds or the overwhelming odds against him.

At first, despite his warning to the others, it's Rashad who is mesmerised by the brilliant green gem and stands idly by as Dagobert and Shadi knock their foe to the ground. At last he manages, barely, to master himself and snap out of the emerald's spell. It's still his companions who are doing the significant damage, but as the knight's abnormal savagery continues a realisation strikes him: surely this man too, is influenced by the gemstone he bears.

Seizing an opportunity as the robber knight tries to fend off Shadi and Dagobert at once, Rashad strikes at his damaged shield and succeeds in breaking it. As the wounded man scrambles for the dislodged stone, Rashad,not daring to pick it up lest he fall victim, hurries to kick it away from his grasp.

"Don't let him get to the gem!"

Leufroy slips the relic around his neck in case the reliquary is stolen again before he can return. He gets up, stretches his aching muscles again, and begins to explore the cave.

Dagobert dives for the gem, wrapping it in his cloak.

I am informed that I should make an Energetic roll? 1d20 = 13 vs Energetic16.
