Guild: The Crimson Knights
Bracket: 1. Melee
2. Heraldry/Foot Combat
Hi! For the Tourney, I'm using my LOM character, though I changed the skin color from flesh to yellow.
Yesterday, I left for Carthal to meet up with the other Crimson Knights for the Tourney. That evening, I stopped at a small tavern.
I tied my horse to the outside of the tavern, and walked inside.
I got a drink and chose a corner to sit in, not wanting to attract unwelcome attention to the Crimson Knights.
Inside, there were characters of all sorts, from one-eyed barkeepers to Mythronians angry with the previously mentioned barkeeper.
Suddenly, two orcs walked in the door. I guess they were outlaws, from the ragged clothing they wore.
They stared at me, and one of them whispered in his partner's ear.
They found the barkeeper, and, from what I could hear, were talking about the Tourney, and what sounded like the Crimson Knights.
I finished my drink, and went outside to leave, not liking the uncanny attention that the orcs were giving me.
I began mounting my horse, but then...
...the orcs burst out of the tavern and charged!
My horse reared, and then bolted. I was knocked off of the horse, and I...
...fell into the river! Rivers are very cold in winter, did you know that?
I began heaving myself out of the river, but, sadly, was too slow.
One of the orcs hit me with his mace. Luckily, it didn't seriously wound me, although I did go flying into a snowdrift.
I quickly pulled out my sword, and blocked the sword of one of the orcs.
I was cornered against the river, but, by some stroke of luck...
...I shoved the orc into his companion.
They fell, and rolled into the door of the tavern, which opened with a bang.
I snuck in after them, bypassing them and the Mythronian who was attempting to seperate them.
I managed to find a cloak. I didn't want to steal, but hopefully, I'll be able to atone for it sometime. Plus, I needed it, or I'd freeze, due to the amount of water that I had amassed in my water-absorbent clothing.
I exited the tavern, only to find that I had forgotten one important fact...
...my horse was gone! Oops.
The credit for the stone path technique, I think, goes to David FNJ.
