Blood raised is arms in glory, basking in the cheer of his legion of soldiers. The warmth of his fortress filled his nostrials and heated his thick fur. The solders hauling the captive village made it's way around blood and into a large hallway, they were to be taken to the caves, a large holding area for prisoners and captives. The Overlord made his way down a large isle to his chamber followed by the cart with Kaylee and Crimson. His large door opened and slammed shut as he and his two special captives entered it.
"Release them." Bloodbane said calmly as he sat down in his large throne, waiting to see the two. "Also, prepair my son for his company."
'This is quite the festival,' Liam thought as he idly munched on a hot scone he'd picked up at one of the stalls. A lot of creatures had shown up, mostly otters it seemed. As he walked past a vendor hawking 'the best tea bread you'll ever taste north of Redwall!', he noticed a long line of creatures, stretching all the way to the main pavilion. The excitement in the air was palpable.
"What's all this about?" he asked a nearby otter, a burly fellow who was carrying a harpoon.
"The whole reason reason we have this celebration in the first place!" he exclaimed, looking Liam over. "'Tis the annual Fishing Competition!"
"So I was right. Kind of," Liam muttered to himself, then turned his attention back towards the otter. "Can anybeast join?"
"Of course, matey!" the otter grinned widely. "You've got three days to find yourself the biggest fish you can find! Course," he winked, "you have to compete with everybeast else. But that's the fun of it!"
Liam looked at his spear, wondering if it would be enough. "Well, it couldn't hurt. Where do I sign up?"
"Over there," the otter pointed towards the end of the long line.
"Thanks," Liam replied, feeling the beginnings of a headache, and made his way towards it.
(Yes, but I need to pose out @.@ had a couple of old friends pass away over the last few weeks, it was expected because they were old / one had cancer, but still kind of energy draining. It's time to face the music and realize I can't keep up xD so I'm going to pose Dylan out for a while sorry .w. Ty for the rp! It was fun!)
The lizard blinks in shock as the hare has the gall to take his hat. HIS hat. "Get back here you lilly livered swine! You want a fight? I've got a fight for you!" he begins to leap over the ledge when a stray rat beans him across the back of the head, "But I don't wan to wear de long pants momma…" he says in confusion as his eyes roll upward. He spins as he falls. Tongue sticking out of his unconcious mouth the lizard is dragged away by a pair of rats.

Despite the danger to the shrews presented to the carivan there was no safe way to move the wounded so quickly.
It was settled among the drivers to bunker down and set up in a defensive position for an attack that never came. Although many had been set to watchmen duty it was doubtfull most would find sleep easy tonight.
The setting sun found the camp set at the entrence of the broken bridge. There were no camp fires tonight. The usual songs of mirth were absent tonight.
When Jack returned from his patrol all eyes of the camp fell upon him. It was not a pleasent look they gave him and even the most jaded of beasts could feel the bitter sting of their eyes upon him.
"Bandit. You got a moment?" The hare found the fox sitting upon a tree stump near the side of the road. The fox was sharpening his blade with a stone to idle away the time.
"Sure thing, how did the patrol go?" The fox replied.
Jack growled as he took off his hat and ran his paw through his fur. "Not a bleedin sign of them. I don't know where they went but we couldnt find hide or tail of them."
"You think they will come back?" the fox asked bluntly.
"Maybe…maybe not." Jack kicked at the dirt. "Blazes! Where did they come from? I've gone over this trail three times before and I've never seen them before! And now that the bridge is out...blazes we will need to back track until we reach the north land rout. It will be a few days longer but..."
Rubbing his eyes the hare put his hat back on. Adjusting it he said, "Let all the guards know that we are leaving at first light."
"I think they already know. The guards seemed much more capable than the money used to hire them suggests..."
