    Default Ode to the Last God of Man - Game

    The day is a bleak gray, the sky bodes a storm, and the horizon bears the last of the blue sky that was held in the early day. As each of you approach the Precipice district, the many groups of merchants and citizens slowly become vacant. The houses on either side of the streets are mere shells of the once rich district, and soon the rushing waves fill your ears and echo against each of the towering buildings, as well as the smaller homes.
    The day is the 3rd of Desnus, and each of you arrives to this deserted part of the great city of Absalom to answer the summons of the Inquisition of the Fallen.

    Each of you please describe your arrival, either alone or with another character.

    A young lady walks slowly through the generally vacant area. She tugs every so often at the scale mail, clean and polished and showing little wear. A dog hops and runs along, barking at her every so often as if to urge her faster. "Oh hush Copper. You try walking with a ton of metal draped about you." The mock scowl betrays a certain levity, despite her clear discomfort with the armor.

    Hey Lupé, you want to be my friend and walk with me as we answer our calling together?

    @Melina: you got it!

    Having just parted with a stranger, Lupé walks, holding her wild wolf by her side with a makeshift flowery bow-collar, which is odd given the wolf has a saddle on her back.
    "Melina! Copper!" the curly haired halfling calls in excitement - thank goodness somebody she knows is here too."Greeting!"
    She runs with her wolf in her hand, her creased invitation dangling in the other. a burgundy material runs along her cheeks and brow like tribal paint - supposedly it's part of her idea of dressing for the occasion.
    "You come church too?" she inquires in her basic common tongue.

    Alise wanders the vacant streets, still a little wishy-washy on the deal in the letter. She spots a familiar face, however, and heads over waving her hand ecstatically, though more for the wolf than the woman. "Lupé! It's good to see you. It's not often you come into town, what gives?" A sly smile creeps across her face as she notices her friend's companion. "And hello to you, too, miss."

    "Alise?" Lupé looks about after hearing the young witch calling, with the help of her wolf, who looks to the right direction. Once Alise comes into sight she is met with a merry embrace.
    "Good too see too! -What...gives?"
    She gives not a second's thought before smiling and showing the invitation.
    "Oh gift! Church gift me writings, Yommis Elf teacher me writings now. Yommis good writings teacher!" she seems to be really excited about this "Yommis" fellow as she opens up her invitation.
    "'Ga...there.... Toh–Gather to- th-the choor-ché of tea fol....ling' see? I say writings! I gather to church, help church as thank gift you"

    Roparten

    Roparten, a tall dark haired man, walks along the increasingly empty streets alone. He doesn't mind much as his thoughts travel their own paths looking at the buildings around him. Then he turns the corner from one empty onto another seemingly empty street, only to see before him a scarfed wolf being dragged by a running halfling woman. She seems be chasing after a woman and her dog. Roparten chuckles to himself at Lupe's antics, for he knows the Halfling from times spent traveling or exploring together. He figures that for these two to be headed this way down the deserted streets that they must be headed toward the church as well, so he continues his slow pace and plans to meet up with them once they reach their destination.

    "Lupé!" Melina greets the halfling warmly as they meet up, and Copper barks at the pair enthusiastically. She smiles at Alise and introduces herself. "Any friend of Lupé is a friend of mine." Turning back to her friend, she exclaims, "What brings to into the city!" She listens and notes the similar invitation the halfling received. "You too? I..."

    Suddenly she breaks off and looks over towards a tall dark-haired man. She grins as she turns to Lupé. "Psst, don't look now, but I think that man is looking at you."

    "man? Who man? Not see." Lupé shifts her gaze to no avail, he must be too far away. Not an uncommon matter with Lupés eyes.

    @Roparten: How far away are you from us? Lupé is near-sighted and will likely not see you. Lemme know if you are within 30 feet, in which case I could make changes.

    Arrisan

    Arrisan walks slowly and cautiously. He was never one for paranoia, but the note was certainly cryptic in it's brevity and lack of reason or author. A tall dark man with bright green eyes who seems smaller than his actual size as he approaches the church trying to be unseen, bow in hand. What is the reason for the call and who called him? He didn't really suspect danger, but there was the air of excitement as the time finally approached. He stalked the empty streets and the church itself.

    As you stealth through the alleyways, you spot a lone man in a cloak of gray lined with gold. He is holding a mace and seems to be preparing for something, and then you see a smaller man wearing dirty leather come up behind him with a dagger: What do you do? (they are both 6 squares from you, also, everyone else is hearing the start of what is going to happen, also the person yelling in the next part for everyone else is not assumed to be you.)

    "C'mon! Something's wrong!" Melina shouts back as she races towards the commotion. As she does, she grunts against the tug of her scalemail, pulling at her every move. "Why, if you weren't a gift from Tallak..." she complains to no one in particular as she plods along.

    Copper yelps and barks as he hops along, constantly having to stop to keep from running into his companion cleric.

    As the man in robes is attacked, you hear behind you footsteps, and when you look there stand two burly, dirty, half-orcs, each with a club in their hands. "Welcome to the wrong neibhorhood, the toll to leave alive is everything you got," one of them calls.

    Round One Start:
    Lupe arrives on the scene where she spots 4 men slowly surrounding a man in gray robes, each of them spouting random threats. Each of them has ruddy leather armor on, and various weapons such as clubs and shortswords. One of them, standing taller than the rest, points at you calling: "'ELLO LASS, YOU LOST?"
