Michael wishes to speak with the knights.

Post by Micheal Grayflow on Wed Mar 21, 2018 4:45 pm

Michael walks out of the bunkhouse and walks up to the notice board and pins a small note up, it reads.
" Hello friends, I wish to speak with the knights, mainly Degeren as I wish to join/help the knights or anything related."
Michael steps back and smiles as he realizes the potential of joining the knights.

Noticing the note pinned to the notice board, Datura takes a quick gander at what it says.
"Join? Help?" he mutters to himself. "I swear, these people have no idea what that even entails."
Datura pours himself a frothing tankard of ale and sits at the nearest available bench in the inn.
"...and why Degren only? Doesn't this guy realize that Degren isn't even in town at the moment? Hell, not even our second in command is around right now. I'm sure Pierre would love to introduce us... but would he even bother to explain all the shit that we have to go through? All the political nonsense that comes with being a defender of this town?" he thinks to himself.
Taking a huge swig from the tankard and wiping his mouth on his sleeve, he slams the tankard down on the tabletop. "What makes this guy think he even comes close to resembling Knight material? The battles we face, the losses we take, the people we kill... it takes a certain kind of person to be able to even come close to fathoming that kind of shit."
Standing up from the table, Datura opens his hand and lets the cold essence of water mana flow freely around his hand, as if he were flexing his ability to use it. "Sometimes... I wish i could just show them what it really takes."

Michael walks in to the inn and looks at Daturas hand to see the water mana flowing around it.
"I didn't take you as a water mage Datura, how skilled are You? If I'm allowed to ask that is." Michael asks, pouring up a tankard of ale and sitting down across from Datura.
"Is any of the other knights coming or is it just You, I would like to speak to one about joining, I know I may not have what it takes, but I'd like to try and defend this town if possible." Michael asks before taking swig of ale and setting the tankard down.

Krond, who had been sitting silently in the corner of the room all morning, perks up at the mention of defending the town. He looks over and says, “what makes you think you HAVE to be a knight to defend the town. Lots of people defend the town who are not knights and they do alright. So why do you wanna be a knight?” He shifts in his seat in a more upright position, his meal still fresh in his belly. He sees that Datura has started his day with a cup of alcohol and shakes his head, “god damnit Datura, I’ve told you about drinking too early in the day.”

Michael turns to face Krond.
"I know I don't HAVE to be a knight to defend the town, I'd just like to be a part of something greater than myself. While I was gone, I thought about making myself more useful, and I thought joining the knights would do that. But I'm not as combat oriented as the rest of you. " he says before taking taking another swig of ale and setting the tankard down.

Krond speaks up, “well, it’s one thing to join the Order of Iron; it’s another thing entirely to become a knight. While anyone is welcome to join the Order, you have to pass a series of trials to become knighted. That’s just the way it goes. If you still wanna give it a shot then you need to join the Brigade first; but, in order to do that you need references from either the people in town or a knight to get you in. Think you can do that?”

Michael ponders the question, but his mind wanders off for a moment, the idea of joining the knights fade and the thought of starting a magic college becomes much more prominent in his mind.
He looks back at Krond with a new goal in his mind and stands up. "Actually, come to think of it, I don't think I'm all that cut out for that kind of thing, but I have something in mind that may be better for me as an individual."
And with that, Michael turns to the door, leaving the two knights alone together.

Lady Val, who has been studying in the corner with a pot of tea smirks at the short exchange. Once Michael has left she speaks up. "Its fine Krond, Michael seems far to intellectual to take on the martial tests required to become one of the knights. However, a Magic College or at least a collective could be very useful. The circles need protecting from those giant Mana Turtles and I am sure if us magic uses organized ourselves better we could be more efficient in combat or at least in preparing the fighters for combat." She gazes at him over the top of her book.

"Besides, there are several people still striving for Knighthood and as you say, it takes a certain kind of person to be Knighted, isn't that right Datura?"

"Its merely an idea that Torvallis! mentioned last summer. A mages guild or college or whatnot is generally how people refer to an organized collective of people who delve into the arcane arts. We have one back in Tor'Jadin that is quite well established. Michael told me he is a former Professor from what I understand, ergo, to quote him 'something that may be better suited for [him] as an individual' is likely something more scholastic in nature."

"Of course, he might simply mean he has decided to go and make a library, who knows?" She shrugs.

“Oh . . . Alright then. Doesn’t sound too dissimilar to what the knights have, just filled with mages. I never took to the arcane arts; no interest. The closest interaction I had to the arcane arts, before coming to Holdfast, was the shaman from my tribe. She was the one to go to for arcane magic.”

"Yes, the consolidation of mages into guilds and whatnot is a relatively new thing for most humans from what I understand. We Fae have had them since before we left the Mists but since access to magic seems to be a new thing for the people who are native to this plane of existence it makes sense that there would be fewer mages in smaller towns."

"On a more serious note," she looks specifically at Krond "Do people in the Iron Brigade still strive to become knights? And more importantly, do the Knights still enjoy being my Knights and Knights of Holdfast? I ask because I am curious. I don't know how many members of the Iron Brigade are trying to become knighted."

Asher, unaware that shes walking into any sort of serious discussion, nods a friendly hello to everyone in the inn, and sits in the corner near the wood stove. She begins carving at a long piece of wood which she appears to be fashioning into an arrow.

She quietly and intently listens to whats going on.

"Vell, I'm part of ze iron brigade und I have no intention of becoming a knight."

Krond also nods at Asher as she enter the room, though not nearly as elegant as lady Val. Then he turns to look at Val and says, "Well, Degren has contracted me to oversee the training of all the members of the Iron Brigade. The point of the Iron Brigade, from my understanding, is to train it's members in martial combat to better enhance their fighting capabilities. Those who want to learn how to better defend themselves and the town are more than welcome to join. If they want to later become knights then they must meet my seal of approval before attempting the trials required to be knighted. As of right now I think Talia is the only member of the Brigade who has expressed interest in becoming a knight. So there are those who do wish to become knights if that answers your question."

Krond leans forward in his seat now, resting his elbows on his knees as he looks at lady Val with great intent, "As for whether or not the Knights 'enjoy' being your knights and knights of Holdfast, here's what I think. First off, I'm not a knight so I'm not privy to all the discussions the knights have. I'm simply helping out Degren with a minor role in the Order because he's a good friend. Second off, all of the knights, including this one . . . " Krond points to Datura, "are always willing to put themselves in harms way for the sake of everyone in the town. Everyone. I don't think they'd still be here doing what they do if they didn't at least care for the town and its people. But I think a lot of the apprehensiveness, that's a word I learned recently, they've been feeling lately is due to the fact that they've been betrayed before; and, there have been times when people pointed their fingers at them and blamed them when shit hit the windmill, even though all they did was do what they thought was right to protect Holdfast. Like what happened after those band of elves came here a year and a half ago; the ones that had Teek in chains. I can't answer for sure whether or not the Knights 'enjoy' being your knights after all thats happened because I don't know where they stand and I can't speak for them; but, at the very least I know they care deeply for this town and it's citizens. Hell, Pierre gave his own life for this town . . . because this is his home, and we are his family."

"If you wish to know where the knights stand then you should talk to Degren when he returns from his journey. This is simply the opinion of someone from the outside looking in."

Krond stands up and stretches out his legs after sitting for a long time, "as for me, I'll keep doing what I do best and beat back anything that threatens my comrades."

Lady Val nods. "Good. I am glad that they are happy to continue serving Holdfast. I asked simply because like you I am not privy to the conversations the Knights have in private and since they are technically Knights of my March I wanted to check in on things, see how people felt, which, to be fair may be better assessed through Degren. With the Rift being so quiet and the threat of dimensional war upon us, I wanted to examine the current emotions running through Holdfast, see where people stand and if there are bridges to be mended, mend them. I think that this is the calm before the storm, and if so we will need to work together to win against the Rift beings."

Pierre stumbles through the door, some snow covering his cloak. He brushes it off as he enters. He over hears the tail end of the conversation. He has a puzzling look on his face. He places a rock at the bar and takes a small drink with him.
"Whats this about your March Lady Val?" the puzzling look still on his face as he approaches the conversation.

"Sir Pierre! Perfect timing! The territory owned by a Marquess, such as myself, is called a March. Holdfast is not a part of the land that I govern, that is, naturally, back in Sinciput, but as a Knight that has been Knighted by myself you are therefore a member of my March and can be called to protect it at any time. In return, if you were interested, I could, in theory, give you your own plot of land within my territory in Sinciput to do with as you please if I was satisfied with your service."

Lady Val smiles. "But that is besides the point, you look like you are freezing and could use a warm drink. If I am not mistaken I think I can smell some mulled wine on the stove next to Asher."

Pierre's face still showing facial expression of confusion. He opens his mouth about to speak, but stops and looks around the inn. Eyes back to Val, "Do you mind if we continue this conversation in private for a couple minutes?"

OOG: Maybe PM on forums, or FB?
