OOC: This charming story is Dawn's idea, I just made the thread for it.
Sighing, Reverrek closed his bag, having tucked away everything he would need for the journey. "If Pen weren't so squeamish around those stupid worms," he began, "Still, I suppose it's for a good cause." Earlier that day, He and the royal family had been nearly killed by a group of giant, blue worms. Mountain worms, as he had been reliably informed. The worms quickly left, at the command of their leader, but not before giving the group a warning that they would all be killed, and that Dawn the Badger would be the one leading them to victory. Dawn seemed to oppose this idea, but he didn't exactly make himself clear on where his true loyalties lied. Dawn had suggested that a peace offering might appease the Mountain Worms, but this was no guarantee. Dawn had the ability to command a different race of similar worms, called Forest Worms. One of these worms had chosen Penblade, the bard of Queen Kiara and King Vikenti, to travel with Dawn. Pen, however, did not wish to come, so Reverrek had volunteered to go in his place. The two had agreed to meet up at the north-west edge of the royal palace, where they would then set off for the mountains that the Mountain Worms called home. While he did not trust Dawn, he knew that going with him was the only option available at the moment. He took one last look around to make sure he had gotten everything, and set off to where he had been instructed to meet Dawn, who would be accompanied by Dusk the Assassin, an apparent friend of his. Based off of previous experiences, he did not trust Dusk very much either. Still, going with the two of them gave everyone a better chance of living than not. Letting out a sigh, Reverrek continued walking. He soon came to the clearing where he had been instructed to meet the others. He could see Dawn, but he did not see Dusk. This more or less worried him. "Have you seen Dusk about?" he asked Dawn, hoping the badger would have some idea.
