Forsaken Knight

Post by flower » Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:18 pm

Always on the road, the drow settled to the campfire. Curved blade in scabbard laying aside, and she reached for a small notebook.

It had been many years since my harper lover left me. Because i refused to follow her, sticking to questionable duty to my god. Vance has fallen and, days ago i was to pack my things up. But he came to power once again. The raids are now intense, daily I listen how many people were slained. I desire to leave, to return home. But i cannot. The will of his, wishs me to stay and fight. No, he demands it, he commands it.

I hate him. I hate all he represents. He took from me my future and future of my kind. Doubtful duty to him took my lover from me. He made me to stay lonely. The more and more, I am persuaded it was not a gift ages ago, but some kind of curse, playful one, forced on me to drive me mad.

Days are dragging slowly on. Every single moment is test of my own self control. I am commanded to learn and train, but every bit i gain in skills, make my anger and shared wrath to grow. What of it belongs to him, and what is my own? Can i ever figure out, what feelings are mine, and what are his? Is this how a slave feels? Entrapped,locked up, unsure what feelings are own. Is being a god's vessel just another form of enslavement?

I met another, who is like me. But he does not appear to suffer from same, and perhaps chose his path on his own. I like his company. He brought me to one seldarine priest. It took time for us to travel together. It feels good to be in normal company. I have been missing it nearly ten years now. The eilistraeen priestess who handled Temple of Lloth is gone, did i fail to protect her? I read on boards she had been killed in llothite scheme against some men. Does masquarade come at price of life?

I spent time by side of madman, a warlock, and his companion. The stench of walking dead was unbearable, and fiends he brought up pushed my inner limits. His constant boasts of dark powers...our party struggled against a huge giant. I managed to stop the giant a moment in his track, and held him up. My act saved life of that orog, warlocks and of llothite priestess. This is not the way I should be using my powers. Did he enslaved me so much, i am unable even of symbolic mockery of him?

Travelling with my elven priest and his friends. Finally fighting and protecting the right people. With him, i felt again the strange urge. Urge to protect him, as I had with the priestess. Maybe it is my fate, the god demands of me. To protect clergy of seldarine. Or is it just an illusion i pull on myself? Made up feelings? Perhaps madness begins to swallow me.

Second encounter with pirates within few weeks. Before, I would not go for the clash, but Mach mentioned the two behind are his enslaved companions. He had been so indecisive...fight or leave? You do not abandon your friends, so i decided it for him. Sadly, neither of us was ready for the skirmish. His wards, supposed to ward us from inferior orcs, faded right at the beginning. And I forgot to channel half of my powers, didn't I?
We have gotten badly cut. And just hours ago, when i laughed at Rivis for hiring longboat with no below deck, to move drow companion around on seas, we got boarded. Only Rivis was warded. The best i could do would be maybe show a vulgar gesture with hand, but the priest put up furious fight.
If i had any doubts, they are dispelled now. I already know my place, and my purpose. My shield will serve to any priest of Seldarine, and my sword will be taken on their foes. I will begin with Rivis. Lots of practise still ahead, and my gear is nearly falling apart, but my place is to protect that priest with my own life. And to protect elvenkin, children of my god, be them elves or my brethen who abandoned old paths. A true, formal oath is to be taken.

Note: Practise and practise. And learn teamwork with Thel.

When you get older, plainer, saner
When you remember all the danger we came from
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Long before the days of no surrender
Years ago and well you know

Smoke 'em if you got 'em
'Cause it's going down
I'll never get to Arvandor
'Cause I don't know how
'Cause i am not welcome

Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost of you,
My god,
Just that you could cut me loose
My god,
After everything I've lost of you
My god
I'll raise your banner,
I'll make a stand.
