[open] Erased Through Time (Mossflower) Act1



  • OOC: LOL black vixen, Nova’s a white vixen.
    BIC: Nova watched the scuffle that ended almost as soon as it started taking note of how Skor used two swords, one for each paw.
    [“What is your name, vixen?”]
    Nova snorted sending mist out into the air from her breath “Name’s Nova, what’s your name sea otter?” she folded her arms and tapped at her right elbow as she continued “Of course I suppose it might be easier to talk in some cover from this dreaded downpour.”
    She cringed as a drop landed in one of her eyes “Hmph… what’s your name stripedo… badger sir?”



  • OOC: Heh, stripedog, Rev's a honey badger.
    BIC: [“Of course I suppose it might be easier to talk in some cover from this dreaded downpour.”]
    "I'd say so."
    [“Hmph… what’s your name stripedo… badger sir?”]
    "Oh, name's Reverrek. Rev, if you like. We should find some cover soon, but first we need to take care of this…" he gestured with his hands as he struggled to find a fitting word, "mess. What do you lot do with your dead around these parts? And then there's the matter of this tablet." He picked up the tablet before continuing, looking back at the hare, "...However, we should probably get that taken care of first before we worry about this tablet."



  • “My name is Skor. Skor Axehound,” Skor said.  “Do either of you know what happened here? This tablet looks to be important, especially if an old Long Patrol captain was taking it somewhere.
    “Let’s put some rocks on top of the captain,” said Skor. “Then let’s get back into the trees to talk.”



  • OOC: Sorry if it comes across as rude but I'm trying to play Nova's "unstable" personality a little.

    BIC: Nova snorted as she looked at the deceased hare in front of them “Bury him… out here? Don’t you think the Long Patrol would want bury their Captain rather than leaving him in the middle of nowhere to rot in his own stone oven?”

    She cringed slightly but not from the rain but rather her own words “Agh, what I mean is don’t you think someone’s going to want to give him an honorable burial? Besides, there could e something else on him relating to the tablet.”



  • OOC: I don't mind. It's in character, isn't it?  😉

    BIC: ["Don’t you think the Long Patrol would want bury their Captain rather than leaving him in the middle of nowhere to rot in his own stone oven? Agh, what I mean is don’t you think someone’s going to want to give him an honorable burial? Besides, there could be something else on him relating to the tablet."]
    Rev turned to Skor, "I've got a feeling she's right, mate."
    The badger took another look at the hare. "Do you think somebeast at Redwall would know how to get in contact with the Long Patrol? I don't fancy logging around a dead beast for what looks like a day and a half."
    Reverrek bent over and fished through the Captain's pockets for anything relating to the tablet. He found a scrap of paper with some writing on it. He quickly put it into his own pocket, not wanting the rain to ruin the only thing that could shed any light on the situation. He stood back up and looked up at the sky. "This rain is a menace."



  • ooc: I'm sorry that i haven't posted.  I can't think of anything for me to post so Bel can post next



  • ["Do you think somebeast at Redwall would know how to get in contact with the Long Patrol? I don't fancy logging around a dead beast for what looks like a day and a half."]
    Nova glanced at the body for a moment as she considered Reverrek’s point. She imagined lugging the damp hare around in the warm daytime and cringed “Ugh, just thinking of the smell makes me want to gag… and we’re supposed to enjoy that?”
    She turned her attention back to Reverrek and nodded thoroughly though she spoke a little too fast for her tongue to keep up with her thoughts “Yeahhhh thatmightbeagoodideatocheckandsee.”
    Nova watched as he took a small piece of paper from the hare’s pocket and stuff it into his own apparel out of sight. She opened her mouth to inquire about the find however she was beaten to speaking by the badger ["This rain is a menace."]
    The vixen tensed her left lips making a quizzical expression, of course you wouldn’t leave something like that out in the rain. Even as the thought ran through her head she answered Reverrek in a rather blunt yet sarcastic tone of speech “Ya don’t say.”



  • Reverrek took a moment to reflect on the day's events so far. He had gone from being completely lost and almost drowning in a swamp to having two dead beasts on his hands and finding himself in the company of an old friend and an unexpected acquaintance. Not to mention the larger mystery of the tablet and its importance. 'Stranger things have happened, I suppose,' he thought to himself.

    "I'm assumin' this tablet must be mighty important, if its enough to have a beast killed over." Reverrek looked up again at Skor and Nova. "It'd probably be best if one of us stayed behind to keep watch over it. I don't mind stayin' if neither of you wants to."

    OOC: and with that, I make a return after three-million years of not being here. 😃



  • ?I?ll stay,? said Skor.  ?But you may want to take the tablet with you and leave it at Redwall, for safe keeping. Possibly one of the Brothers or Sisters may be able to tell what it is for, I don?t know though, I have never actually been there, but all the stories say that they are very knowledgeable about this sort of thing.? Secretly, Skor was wondering why someone had killed an old hare, and left the tablet lying around. He was sure that the others were thinking the same thing.



  • OOC: I think the coding's glitched again all the commas are showing as question marks.

    BIC: ["I'll stay,? said Skor.  ?But you may want to take the tablet with you and leave it at Redwall, for safe keeping. Possibly one of the Brothers or Sisters may be able to tell what it is for, I don't know though, I have never actually been there, but all the stories say that they are very knowledgeable about this sort of thing."]
    Nova glanced at the motionless hare for a moment then grunted "Skor's right, no need for anybeast stick around here when we can just take the tablet with us. Might as well make a temporary burial for him so nothing gets at him. Need to leave a marker for whoever comes to gather his remains though."
    The white vixen thought on Skor's idea of taking the tablet to Redwall for inspection and gave a light shrug "Don't see how it could hurt to let them have a look at it, so long as it's not out here in this!"
    She opened her arms indicating the pouring rain before turning back to Skor and Reverrek "Question is who wants to carry a giant stone tablet around? It already fell to the ground once, don't want to find out if it falls again and it ain't exactly light."



  • OOC- Noticed. I'll bring it up with RL.

    Funny, it only seems to be happening in this thread.



  • "I'm the biggest beast here, so I may as well." Reverrek reached down and lifted the tablet. It was heavy to be sure, but he felt confident enough that he could carry it to Redwall without issue. He set it down again and looked back up to his companions, "Right, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. In the meantime, I'll go hack down some bushes we can use to cover this poor beast up until we can contact the Long Patrol. Does that sound good to everyone?"



  • OOC:  I'm stuck and not able to make a good post with only talking going on.  Could you guys do a fast forward?



  • OOC: Alright then fast forward to Redwall Abbey. All three of us correct?



  • OOC: Sounds good to me.



  • BIC: Will it ever stop? was all Nova could think as the lightning flickered briefly showing Redwall for a brief moment through the rain that made it hard to see anything past a hundred paces. Wiping the rain from her eyes as she darted up to the gate Nova to cover in the archway and looked at Reverrek and Skor "Not sure if anybeast'll hear us through all this racket but I'd rather be honest and say we knocked…"
    The vixen turned and knocked on the doors of the gate with one claw as she kept her other at her side "Might have to bump the bar with me sword. Got shouted at last time I did that but I'm not sitting out in this downpour any longer than I have to."
    She knocked again and started looking for the gap between the two doors of the gates while waiting for any answer that may or may not come. She grabbed for the hilt of her sword about to draw her blade when a muffled voice called down to them from the wall-tops "Ello zur's who ee knockin at ee gates?"
    Nova looked up and blinked to get a view of the beast before closing her
    eyes, it was one of the abbey moles "Oi, its me Nova and err... umm... Skor Axehound and Reverrek..."
    The white vixen shook her head after a raindown found its way into her nostril "Ack, can you open the cursed gate so we can get out of this... river from the sky? It's getting on my last nerve!"
    The mole nodded "Dat ee can do ferr ee tree of ee marm!"
    Nova cringed as another heavy drop landed on the top of her skull but unlike any of the previous ones this one hurt causing her to rake a claw through her fur. She brought her claw down in front of her and glanced at the pea sized sphere of ice in her claw "Ehh?"
    The gate shook as the bar was removed and three moles opened the gates. Nova bolted by them in a blurr of white "Thanks, I can finally get out of 'this'!"

    OOC: ?



  • Reverrek grunted as he lifted the heavy stone tablet. It hadn't been too difficult at first, but after carrying it for a while, his arms were beginning to get sore, and the heavy rain certainly didn't help any. Making his way through the gate, he was greeted by a front view of the main abbey building. Though it'd probably be easier to see in clear weather, Reverrek couldn't help but marvel at the sight. The famed Redwall Abbey, and here it was right before him. His marveling was quickly brought to a halt by a chunk of ice that pelted him on the head. Startled, he almost dropped the tablet, but quickly regained his grip before hurrying inside the main abbey building. He hadn't expected hail this far south, but thought no more of it as he set the tablet down and caught his breath.



  • Skor was watching the rear of their small group.  He shook his head in annoyance with rain trying to see father down the path they had come from.  turning his head for a second he saw the fabled abbey of Redwall ahead, and increased his speed a little to get there with Nova and Reverrek.  Coming through the gate he felt a piece of hail on his head, "Blasted hail."  He muttered as he hurried inside to get out of the storm.  "I should see about getting a cloak here."  He thought to himself.



  • Huffing and snorting for a second in the Great Hall Nova scowled a little as she glanced around at the few beasts around besides Reverrek and Skor. Fixing her composure and losing her scowl she looked at one of the brothers, a slightly plumped mouse who was adjusting his spectacles as he fiddled with one of the windows of the Great Hall "Wish we had put shutters on right about now, it's starting to rain ice and the last thing I'd want to see is our own windows shredding the tapestry."
    The mouse brought his face almost against the stained window to inspect a tiny crack that had been there since forever concerned that any weakness could make it just that much easier for the window to shatter.
    Nova folded her arms and grunted, here she… they were soaking wet and he was more concerned about some tapestry. She cringed and squeezed her eyes, Bel would've grilled her tail if he could read her mind sometimes. It wasn't just some tapestry, it was the focal point of the abbey and it would be more than a little painful it the centerpiece of the abbey was lost. Taking an open claw with its palm facing up towards the ceiling she motioned to the tapestry "If you're so worried that you're going to smack your face against the window…  hmph! If it's a concern why not just move the tapestry out of the Great Hall?"
    Nova glanced at Reverrek and shrugged sarcastically "We're inside, might as well put that down someplace. Vulpez slay me if the tapestry gets a little cut up."
    The aged mouse turned to her and stepped down off the stool he had been using to get up to the window "It'd take some gentle work to do that, but it could be done... Where to put it though?"

    OOC: Meh?



  • Reverrek sat down next to the tablet and shook himself to dry. He let out a sigh of relief to finally be indoors and at his destination no less. He set down his bag and his sword before gazing around the abbey building. His eyes came to rest on the remarkable tapestry and he sat in wide-eyed wonder of it like a dibbun. "It's incredible…" he said as he stood up to fully admire it. So this was Redwall Abbey, it was just about everything he'd imagined it to be, and he'd just barely seen it so far! He turned his attention to the plump mouse. "This place really is fantastic, but he haven't come just to admire. There's a Long Patrol hare thats been killed, and we think this tablet here has somethin' to do with it."
