The sky was clearing up, night was fading away. But deep under the ground life went on like any other time of the day, sun doesn't dictate lifestyle to children of Shillen, creatures of the dark...
Some of the villagers were sleeping, some were just waking, but moajority was up to it's normal activities. The Dark Elf Village never trully sleeps, words "day" and "night" lost their meanings since there is no sun upon.

The village is not a big one. neither small, but there is one thing that makes it very unique. Not like in any other you will not see any sun elves, dworfs or orcs here. Even humans seem being missing. Everywhere as the eye can see there are dark elves. Among them guards, watchmen, sentry and sentinels. Not even a mouse could hide from their eyes...

But yet, there is one thing hiding in the shadows.

As Fethrane is walking towards the wharehouse located in Dark Elven Village, he is also having a discussion with himself in his head that goes something like this:
"I was selected to be the Cardinal of the Shillien Empire, this is a big responsobility, don't you think? Yeah, I guess... I should act like an example to others to motivate others... But how can I do this? All my life I was expected to be a mercenary. Maybe I should show more tolerance to these low life humans? Even if the history shows to never trust one... Ah-.. It's very hard to deci-"

And his thoughts were interrupted by some kid nerviously mumbling to himself, he seems angry... or even disapointed?

Fethrane walks towards the young dark elf and asks:
- Hey kid, why the sad face?
The kid flinches and looks toward Fethranes face.
- What do you mean why? Haven't you heard about me by now?
Fethranes thoughts: Is this kid important? Doesn't seem so.
- No, care to introduce?
<The Kid sights and starts explaining>
I failed again... I failed the Dark Mage test more than ten times, and now I keep failing the Dark Fighter test too... Why am I such a loser?
Fethranes thoughts: His story is kind of similar to Hrubes...
- You know, I have a friend that was in a similar situation as you are right now. But he kept strong, trained hard and he finally overcome the test of Dark Fighter. You should train hard and with passion, and eventually you will overcome this obsticle.
- No... You don't understand... I am a failure... I don't know what to do...
- Stop blabering, ofcourse you will be a failure if you cannot overcome the weakness inside you. What is your name, kid?
- J-.. Jughead...
- A'ight Jughead, for the time being you will go with me. I'll teach you a few tricks about swordsplay that should help you.

So Fethrane forcefully dragged Jughead to the north-west exit of the village, teaching basics of how to properely wield a sword, how to use it, and popular tactics how to approach your opponent using a shield and sword.

For the time being Fethrane can be spotted outside the village at the north-western gate, sparing with some kid.

Gabriel sits in the DE village. He's trading trinkets with locals as he usually do during last few weeks. His little privat store is set next to village's grocery store.

Just as the day woke up outside the Village, it turned out that this isn't gonna be a nice day. (That is to say if u like worm and dry days...). At first it started to getting dark in oposite to the sunset. The air was heavy and smelled of excitement. Dark massive clouds began to arrive from the west. But then, at one second, everyone on the surface and beneath, could hear a powerfull roar! Thunder struck so powerfully that it shook the ground...

- What in the darkest abyss! - Someone shouted, standing on the market, next to finger-statue.
- Dear Shillen... this is some kind of wild storm comming! - Others were talking...

It began to be clear: anyone who stays under the sky is going to get wet in few minutes.

Lerdan was just walking towards the dark elven village to inform one of the nobles that he has failed. His contract to kill a berserk tree ent has just expired, as he didn't find it in the dark forest for two weeks. As the cloud darkens before the storm he puts up his gloomy face.

Lerdan: I'm punished by some deity, now I'm certain.

Idemona was heading back to Dark elven village from south when she noticed dark clouds corrupting the sky. She starts running towards the south western entrance of village. When Idemona enters the village she looks around to make sure that noone was folowing her. She makes sure that she does not attract unnecesary attention. She slowly starts going towards armory.

You can find Idemona browsing in the armory.

Storm increases in power. Each subsequent roar seems to be more powerful.

The first heavy drops of rain begin to lap the ground.

As soon as the weather has given itself felt, guards got doubled at the exits from the village.

Two of them were talking with each other in excitement.
- Previous such a storm took place over 40 years ago. - Said man, who accidentally hit a passer-by with his elbow during gestures. - I am sorry.
- You shoul be. - Hit man hissed something under his breath and walked away with grumpy face.
- So you say 40 years?
- Yes, it has been 40 years, since... - Rumble of thunder drowned out the conversation for a moment.
- Dear mother, i didn't know!
- Yes, imagine all those people washed ashore. At first nobody knew why this has happened. But then bishop opened an investigation, interviewed hundreds of people, some obviously died in the dungeons awaiting their turn to make a confession of guilt. - He chuckled merrily.
- But how he managed to find out?
- I guess someone trully confessed.
They both chacled.
- What do you think, did someone celebrate the ritual of sacrifice last night or is this just an ordinary storm?
- It would be nice to hear that there is someone who still worships Shillen in the town od Gludin.
- Yes, this would be nice. I hope they sacrificed a lot of filthy children.
- Last time it was 15 little shitty elves. Imagine that they sunk like stones.
Talking about the murder of elven children lasted at best.
In the meantime Ildemona passed around, so she could hear almost the whole story.
But she wasn't the only one to hear it. Since men spoke rather loudly, Fethrane, Gabriel, Lerdan and everyone who wanted to enter or exit the village at that moment might listen in a little too.



//Im not shure about the exits fron the village. Some wrote west, some south. On the map it looks like south-west :P. So i put u in one exit. If i am wrong, forgive me :P, but lets move on :P.

Gabriel's thoughts:
Hell, it's exciting ! Since I saw School of Dark Arts for the first time I was always wondering what would happen to it in case if heavy rain. After the storm ends I should get there. Must be one hell of a lake !
*Wizard barely holds smile on his face.*
Also I wonder if this underground town is anyhow protected from flooding.

Gabriel to nearest town guard:
- Would you, please, tell me what would happen to this town in case of heavy flood ? How is it protected from such emergency ?

player:

Corridor leading to the exit was winding and dark, but she managed to get in here without arousing one's interest - this was half the battle. Of course the weather did not inspire positive, but this was nothing, she was rather affraid of getting in trouble with dark elves. Thank Goddess, she was not the only human spinning around the area. She assumed her hood deeply, hiding face in the shadow.

- Now or never. - She whispered to herself. - Dear Mother of Light, hide me if you do not want to hear dark elves blaspheme against you. Why giving them the opportunity... If they don't find me it would be better not only for myself, you know... I suppose you prefer compliments and prayer, right?

She took last deep breath and she walked out from the shadow of corridor, when the guards started to chat about those drowned children in some kind of rittual. Her heart stopped.
"Oh my Goddess, what the hell! I must get to temple now! If they find out, i'm not there, i am fucking doomed! They will burn me alive... Fuck, fuck, fuck!"

She made her first step on the straight road to the guards.

Wet by not only sweat, but also by heavy rain, Fethrane decides that it's enough training for the time being and travels back to the village. Upon entering, he notices a familiar face.
- Greetings my wannabe-dark brother!
With a big fake smile he greets Gabriel
Fethranes thoughts: oh goddess, I feel so stupid, how does Grazzt pull stunts like these?

Guards stopped chatting. One of them turned toward Gabriel. His expression suggested that he was not happy that some shrimp dare to catch him on duty.
The weather had made the atmosphere tense. Guard took the weapon from its sheath. It was short sword with parsimonious ornaments showing spiny tentacles. He smiled badly.

- What were you doing in there? Speak now. - His voice was calm, he stood gently like a dancer, but something in his eyes was burning alive.

At the same time out of the shadows came the short and completely hooded figure.

Guard added immediatelly:
- Are you together? Have you tried to fool me out?

The second guard took his weapon and aimed at the hooded person.
- You better stop where you are!

Guards threw a look at Feth but they did not react in any way that would suggest that the situation is less dangerous now. They seemd like ignoring him, for now.

Completely soaked by water, tho his spiky hair is still spiky, Fethrane notices that Gabriel might be in a bad position. He cautiosly walks closer to the men, ready to block an incomming attack with his parrying dagger for Gabriel if something bad would happen.
- hey... whats wth all the fuss?
He cautiosly asks with a very serious face expression

// if someone attacks gabriel or feth roll for me, i have high dex and specialize in melee combat without shield

The guard a little calmed down, but frowned. He gaved wordless permission for Feth to come closer to the Gabriel. Yet the second guard did not moved, he watched over hooded person.

First guard:
- So you two know each other? Show me that permission of yours than take off your bag and open it.

Rain got stronger, but they were almost safe under the roof of cave corridor.

- Open which one exactly ?
*as always Gabriel encumbered by all types poches and pockets*
Giving the guard a moment to chose the pouch he likes more wizard takes a look at hooded person.
- No, I believe I don't know this one.

Fethrane a bit nervous in his thoughts:
- hope this won't cause a ruckus, it would be bad if there would be rumours that shillien empire is fighting sentries...

Fethrane silently watches how Gabriel is searching for his permussion
