Located on the eastern most point of the city, the main entrance to the city is always full of travellers coming and going, thus it is the highest patrolled gate of all the other gates. Numerous guards stand at attention at the top of the gate, gazing off yonder and keeping an eye on the oncoming travellers from a distance and passing messages to the guards on the ground of how many travellers are approaching and when they should approximately be at the gate for inspection.

Once at the gate, travellers are asked to submit their packs for inspection for anything suspicious, yet they take into account tools of ones trade and will merely question the person about the items found to be in question. No painful interrogation is performed unless their is resistance and other problems. No one is allowed through without some sort of inspection and the required questions. If a guard does allow someone in without fulfilling the requirements, he is put on probation from the guard for 6 months.

Takashi wanders about the city walls, until reaching the large main gate. The shanty town on the walls is odd, though not unheard of.
He walks up to the guard.

Hello. Takashi Logan, traveller, seeking entrance.

A long travel had it been indeed… But he had finally reached the great city of Voldar, Enormous walls where protecting the downtowns from any outsiders, Guards patrolled around the gates and would recognise the man with some very bad luck; who lured in solitude from out of the forests.

Darién Gulath, The lord of the Shadows. The Shadows of Death… It could very likely be that his men where hidden somewhere and he feared that it might take a couple of days, maybe even weeks to get in contact and muster his forces once again. So what was it he should do this early in the morning, Would the pubs be open already? Darién doubted it.

He took his money pouch and started to count his money. Only some coins and a few valuable jewels that where stolen from some kind of poor guy who crossed paths with Darién. Not only was he robbed of his valuables; But his life too…. But that was already 3 days ago.

Darién slowly started to walk towards the main gate using a dark green cloak to cover up his identity.

Takashi wanders over to the green cloaked figure, droping his pack on the ground, though keeping his weapons close at hand.
So, when do you think this guard is going to get his act together.
His black cloak conceals most of his body, though anyone who knew of his trademark weapon, would see it slung across his back. The hood conceals his tell-tale ears, as well as his piercing green eyes.

As the many travellers come and go, Especially in the early morning he is quite sure that he will not be noticed as the assassin who was so highly wanted  here in Voldar. And it had been over 2 years since he was here for the last time, He doubted if these guards knew him from appearance since he was barely seen; operating trough stealth… And the city was so big that you could even lose a person the size of a dragon in here.
As he wandered closer he met a man who walked from near the gate towards him. For a moment he thought it was one of his enemy’s, maybe a angry cousin of one of his victims who had recognised him on this early morning. But he quickly shook his paranoia off when he heard the man talk.
So, when do you think this guard is going to get his act together. Darién noticed the piercing green eyes, however it where his eyes that pierced right back. A killers-look that almost spoke for themselves telling; You mean nothing to me! Infidel! I have killed dozens of your kind only for fun!
The 2 different eyes; The left Dark-blue  and the right light blue eyes also caused a shivering effect. It was like if he had a glass eye or it would even look is if he where blind with one eye. Even tough he was not. The scar crossed vertically over his right eye as if it was a war-trophy from the old days. Darién had indeed been into a small war;… but that was so many  years ago….
What act, why is this fool talking to me? He wondered. The gates where open,.. all he had to do was go past the security, which should not be a problem for any “normal civilian” without criminal record. What is it you want? Speaking on an unfriendly tone. He had to keep moving; he hated the rising sun (he is a man of the night) and people who tried to socialise with him; since he was more a solitude man…

Nevermind. Hey Guard! You going to hurry up and let us in or what?!
He walks over and picks up his pack.

Yeah foolish pig, Draw the attention of the guards to us,… That’s just what I need, he mumbles unhearable on a sarcastic tone. But since the main gate is so well guarded he probably has no other choice then to go trough any guard check. So he follows the foolish wanderer towards the guard. He knew that if he would walk straight trough into the city he might face an interrogation and that is the last thing he wants…
Once he is close to the guard he stops; I am a traveller visiting here for a couple of nights to perform some of my business and then be on my way after a week. May I pass the gate? He isn’t a friendly person and it almost shows in his eyes that he would do nothing rather then strangle the guard and move on just for not having to be friendly… But why do it difficult when it can be so easy to access the city. There must be tons of travellers gaining entrance to the city every single day. Even tough not for the reason he is here. If the guard only knew or could know that he was responsible for so many deaths. And already caused so much chaos in the days he was here only some years ago… But what would be the odds? There where so many guards in this huge populated city and so few who could really identify him.

Hey Guard! You going to hurry up and let us in or what?

A man, large in both height and weight came strolling over to the two men at an amazing pace for his size. The bright armor of the Erpheronians was dulled by evident skirmishes he had had during the day with other travellers. With numerous stains, it seemed some did not turn out to have gone well for the opposing party. Red hair hung down his back, tied messily in the back by a rouch piece of leather. His helmet was no where to be seen, so he evidently had no fear of anyone taking a shot at his head, or much less living to even dream of such a task. His sword hung dutifully on his left side, for he was right handed. HIs left wrist rested uppon the tip of the hilt, relaxed, yet ready to strike if need be.

"I would suggest, my good sir, that you not order us around. We have the power here to do away with your life if we see fit to, you do not have that same option."

His black eyes glared down at the elf, tapping his fingers on the hilt of his sword. His eyes then passed to a man standing not far from the elf.
"Both of you, give me your packs and follow me!"

Takashi takes his back and hands it to the guard. He makes sure the bladestaff is tied down to his back, and checks for the stilleto in his boot.
"alright then. By all means... Lead on."

Darién gave his bag towards the guard. He was prepared for an inspection of his processions and he luckily didn’t carry any war-trophy’s (like guild-member Tiroki’s chopped off head wrapped in some cloth; at the last city…) and was relieved that it would indeed go as easy as he thought. The guard would lead him into the city and he would retrieve his bag and be on his way. He was slightly annoyed by the seemingly impatient man. There was something in his attitude he couldn’t stand… (But eyh,.. Darién is a very critical person with lots of eye in people’s behaviour, And the person that would be save for any of his critiques had yet to born…) As he followed the guard he made sure that he wasn’t too close to the other man and instead of building his anger he focussed him on the surrounding area...

The guard led them both, with their packs in his hands, to a crowded area with other guards who sat in a circle on the ground going through other's packs and checking for suspicious materials. Items of all different walks of their material lives were thrown into a pile in the middle of the circle. It was evidently the pile in which the suspicious items were placed for closer examination later. The guard dropped their packs roughly on the ground, giving them a gentle kick into the circle before squating down and opening them and emptying the contents one at a time.

"Is this all you have on your possession men? If you have any weapons or other hidden items, I must ask you to remove them and place them in full view for the time being. They may be replaced once you enter the city." The guard rose to his feet with their packs in hand, with all contents replaced into their respectable packs. He did not hand them to the men, but threw them across his own back and motioned for them to follow him once more to a secluded area. He held out his hand, expressing his wish for them to take a seat on the ground. Once they were both seated, he took a seat across from them with their packs still on his back.

"I just have a few traditional questions to ask you boys. What is your purpose in coming to Voldar? What are your plans once you enter the city? Do you need board? Or are you staying with family? Are you seeking employment of any kind? And if there is any other information you wish to tell me, it will make your time here in the city much more enjoyable."

"Is this all you have on your possession men? If you have any weapons or other hidden items, I must ask you to remove them and place them in full view for the time being. They may be replaced once you enter the city."

Darién kept his head cool; This was the moment of truth. He had 2 Warswords on his back hidden underneath his cloak. He mastered the swords like a god. Nobody would ever separate him from his swords…. But what if they found out? What if they searched his body and found them? That would mean a awkward confrontation with too many guards… He quickly shook these thoughts off. He was Darién, The Predator of Milkengrad. He had faced more combat then all of these guards together, He was sure of that… And could he really give off weapons with dried blood on it? That would move him into an even more awkward position. But in these times of criminality it would seem rather obvious to carry a weapon, especially being a lone traveller. The decision was made after some hesitation and Darién gave up one of his knifes to the guard. “I need that back” He spoke when he gave up the weapon.
And as he was led trough towards another secluded place. The guard expressed his wish to let them take a seat on the ground and started to talk.

“I just have a few traditional questions to ask you boys. What is your purpose in coming to Voldar? What are your plans once you enter the city? Do you need board? Or are you staying with family? Are you seeking employment of any kind? And if there is any other information you wish to tell me, it will make your time here in the city much more enjoyable."


Darién kept standing refusing to lower himself towards the ground. He was slightly annoyed by the guard. Did I not just answer your questions at the gate? I’m here for business, Supplies, some drinks, to meet some people and to charge up; to be on my way after a week or 2. I’m just passing trough!

Damien Scar

Damien sat in his customary chair listening to one of his guards ask the customary questions to those who want to enter into Voldar.  He stood up, his black cloak flowed gently as he walked to the door, opened it up and walked into the room.

He closed the door behind him, stepped a ped into the room  The guard was about to stand, but Damien raised his hand and the guard sat back down.  Damien didn't even look at the two men sitting there.  He leaned over the guards shoulder and perused their papers.  Then he straightned up, looked at the men and spoke softly with a deep bass voice each word rang with the authority of "steel" behind them.

"I am Damien Scar.  I am the Gate Commander of Voldar.  The questions that my guard is asking are normal ones for anyone entering Voldar for the first time.  Then after we get to know you, you may get a pass and not be required to go through these questions, as tedious as they may seem to you."  

He paused, giving each man a very careful look over.  He continued, "If you hide anything from this man or me.  Any information requested, or weapons of any sort.  The consequences when and if we find out will be severe!!"

He paused again, peering at each of them men seperately.  His dark eyes searching their faces for the tinyest bit of deception. "Just look at the heads of those who tried me. They adorn the tops of the spires that encircle this city.  Do you understand?  He asked both of them.

He casually waited for their answers.

Takashi reaches down and removes the stilleto from the inside of his boot. The only other weapon he had was the bladestaff across his back... which was painfully evident.

He tosses the stilleto across the table.

Backup weapon, you never know. There is a pair of daggers in the pack as well, but other than this, Takashi pats his bladestaff, thats it.

Takashi checks his memory and then realizes his bow is digging in to his back.

Oh and this... and the arrows that go with it.
Takashi removes the black longbow, and his black quiver from under his cloak when a gap in the cloak allows the iron breastplate to show, the insignia there on painfully evident.

Thats it.

Takashi squirms nervously in his chair as the guard scrutinizes the weaponry, he keeps the bladestaff, his only memory of his adopted parents on his back, and his hood up, hoping not reveal any of the significant features that might denote his identity if the guard didnt already know who he was.

The man that showed up was taller then Darién and muscular looking; Dressed in a nightly black just like himself. Even tough this man was equipped with armours which made his thin frame a tad more intimidating. Battle scars could be seen on the rough man’s hands. This was certainly not a weak coward like some of the other guards and the traveller that where with him; Who immediately took off his weapons when the big black clothed man started to threaten them…
"Just look at the heads of those who tried me. They adorn the tops of the spires that encircle this city. Do you understand?

Weren’t his guild members crossing the borders of the gate on a regular base? How would they be able to do “that” with a commander giving close inspections on every traveller that passes by…. Darién could not remember such severe safety measures when he entered and left Voldar about 1 year ago… But then again Darién outlived so many things and remembered only what “he wanted to remember”. He had quite a selective memory.
How would Julian, Kiseria, Yggrasillas, Borgan or the others have managed to ship the weapons, trophy’s and stolen money over? Their wanted status is not much less then “his”, And they would carry out “tons” of missions;… even past the borders of Voldar. Would there be another entrance or some kind of way to get in by the Shadows?
Questions and no answers;… And it is all of later concern since he was now dealing with a commander who takes his job very seriously…. Could it be that Julian, Kiseria  and Yggrasillas’s heads where already pierced upon these spires that encircled the city; As failure getting past this man?


The soulless black eyes are inspecting, looking and observing the reactions of both travellers; But when Damien’s eyes cross Darién’s he can find no other suspicious behaviour then another soulless pair of eyes staring right back. Darién never lowered his head as this was seen as avoiding confrontation by the nearby person; And he provoked many of people who stared them in the eyes;,.. Only by staring back. Darién did not fear this man,.. Not at all; No he slightly respected him for wat he was, And if it would have been under better circumstances he might have even bought the man a ale, But this was not occasion;.. This was his enemy now; It was this big man who stood between him; and entering the city…

“Yes I understand”
Was Darién’s answer and he hoped that the man would stop this “act” and would finally let him pass. Even tough he kept his soulless arrogant –different coloured- eyes focussed on the dark black eyes of the Commander.
