(Crossing, Zoluren: 296 Skullcleaver 363)
A new face walks into the bar looking cautiously left and right. After a few moments of gazing he sits down at the almost empty bar. He orders a Grog that seems a bit stronger than usual.
"Greetings Prydaen!" Baresh Exclaims. "You’re a new face here, what brings you to these parts."
The Prydaen looks up at Baresh with a shimmer of coldness in his eyes. He takes a sip of his grog and settles himself in a state of relaxation. Baresh glares down at him with confusion.
"You’re a quiet one boy, what do you have to day. Isn’t a silent night of peace. Usually people have stories to tell," says Baresh.
The Prydaen blinks and looks up at the barkeeper and exclaims, "Stories! Why I love telling stories. Name’s Kelbel. How are ya?"
Baresh looks down at him and says, "Well tell me a story. Tell me about the war, how’s it goin’?
Kelbel begins his story with, "Well as you know, The Elpalzi and S’lai teamed up under control of Sorrow and his Sidekicks. The rumor has it that Sorrow died on the stones, but the Elpalzi and S’lai were still under control. They had a barricade put up on the Northen Trade Route that killed many people. It was a strong Steel barricade that cost lives to destroy. At first we were completly outnumbered on the power of that thing. The barricade came complete with oil rocks and Archers. Every time someone played with it, Mages, Officers, Archers, Crossbowman, Commanders, Warriors, and Screamers launched out, it was terrifying."
"Today, all the fighters joined. We digged and chipped that ole peice o dirt to ruins. Of course enemies flew out after it but we took em to the ground. Some thought it was the end since Sorrow was dead, but it wasn’t. So ahead we went up the long road until we reached the company. It was a Suprise, Hundreds of enimes swarming while hundreds die, it seemed like the beginning. So here we are this blasted war not over yet!" he slams his fist on the counter while releaseing a platinum coin.
"Keep the change," Kelbel says as he walks out the door. Baresh grins and takes his glass and continues wipeing the counter.
