Rise of Kyrien
16 Finding Nualia pt 3
Next room has a big hole in the centre of the floor with 6 guys chanting around it and yellow smoke. We attack and next thing I know some big beasty shows up through the crack. I ran up and killed 3 dudes before I turned and went for the big thing. There was the hole between me and the beastie so I jumped over the balcony, ran up, jumped over the chasm and plunged my sword into the beast and it fell down. How amazing that must have looked! Had a moment where danced on the body because that was awesome!
Next room has a fire giant attached to a couple of chains. He wasn’t going anywhere. Seems he was in charge here before some people took over, currently Nualia. We agree to let him go and help defeat her and in return we are allowed to leave. I hit the pillars holding the chains a couple of times and it shatters. He breaks free and walks the way we came.
Next room we wander in and see a number of characters, Nualia and an altar. 2 big earthy rock guys show up and start attacking. Beat them then head up to the bridge. See the fire chick from Weathertop dead at the front of the bridge. She was under some spell that allowed her to speak and tell us we had to be honest or kill someone. Monkie boy admitted to sleeping with the general. Holy hell! What the crap is that all about??! She’s not even pretty! When did he have any bloody time for that shit anyways?
Other monk says she killed her mother. Witch says her mother was a hag. Holy crap! Who the hell are these people? What the hell have I gotten myself into? After this I’m getting the hell outta here, apply for leave or something. How the hell do I get myself into this shit?
I just want to survive this so I run headlong into the battle. We kill the minions then turn on Nualia. She hit hard but we swarmed her and she went down. Only the elf chick seemed to not get back up but no one seemed to be very upset about that. Had a look around and saw the 7 swords and tried to sort out how to get them out.
We manage to get out and head back to the general. Didn’t even get a chance to get my shit unpacked before we were summoned. Not even time for a drink or two!
We head out there and I tried to keep my mind off the thought of her and monkie sleeping together. So I just said whatever came to mind about the mission. She told me to stop talking which helped because I really wanted to say something. A number of times I had to keep in my mind that she said I wasn’t allowed to talk in order to not blurt something out.
NOW I know why she doesn’t like me – she’s just jealous that I get to go on missions with him and she can’t! Makes sense now. I’ll just have to try not to say anything or I could get in a world of trouble.
Speaking of, wasn’t too happy that monkie seemed to say that my drinking was affecting the mission. I don’t see what the problem is with having a few drinks every now and then. Who am I hurting? Not like I have anyone to keep me warm at night. I didn’t say anything about him banging the boss, so why should he say anything about my shit?
