"Heh...sorry." Tierria blushed a little, and started to untie Phiona. "How did I come to be captured? Well basically I was walking with Elranaria and this dwarf we met when all of the sudden these men approached us. They said that if I didn't come with them, that they was going to hurt you and Severine. So of course I had no choice but to go with them. I didn't want anything to happen to either of you..."

Tierria sighed as she finished untying Phiona. "So...what's the story with these people? Do you know?"

Ardan was silently sitting in this chair when he heard several noises coming from the walls of the house. He slowly stood up, and looked at Julia.

"Did you hear that?" he asked.

Julia nodded a little. "A few times I did, yes." Another sound was heard as the woman stared at the walls. "Do you think someone is making a pathetic attempt to spy on us?"

"It's probably Severine's allies, trying to rescue him and his two female companions." Richart gave no hint of amusement as he said the last part of his sentence. "There's no doubt in my mind that they followed the girl."

"If you ask me, we should go out there surprise them," Julia's eyes began to burn with passion. "And make them pay for what they did!"

"No." Karla moved away from the wall she was leaning against, and made her way to the center of the room. "We wait for them to come to us. We make ourselves look like we're off-guard. We act casual. If they are in fact working for the Legion, then they have no problem bringing soldiers here. I want a few archers to stand by the wondows. If you see them leaving...then shoot them. If nwe can't, then we'll follow them and make sure their message never reach Blackwine."

Darman nodded. "Karla's right. They probably want to try to take us out and get some kind of special reward from Marlus. That's how bounty hunters are. They're all greedy."

Julia tried her best not to roll her eyes. "So we wait?"

Karla nodded. "We wait."

*Dray watches as his cold gaze is returned equally by the man but keeps his on him*

"Whats the story with us? Well I can tell you what my old friend told me, but that is about it...as for the whole story you will have to ask them. You are right about those mercenaries you supplied the weapons too. They are lead by a man who wants to control this city and many others not protect them...the protection is just a ruse for him to get on the peoples good side before he takes over the village. Those people who attacked you were trying to keep those weapons from the Mercenaries in order to tyr and get their town back. They fight against them...and I am here to help them...Now I spoke with your female friend in the other room and I know where she stands and what her spirit says...what about you? Are you the kind who only cares for the money will you not put your great skills to a good cause for the defeat of injustice and evil....or are you just a mercenary.

"What?  Tierria!  You should know better than to put yourself in danger like that!" Phiona replied with a hiss, in an attempt to keep her voice down.  She rubbed her wrists, standing up for the first time since she awoke as a prisoner in the small house; she immediately began to pace the small room like a panther in a cage.  Although it felt good to stretch her legs, it was very apparent that she was angry with the young healer just then...   "We would have gotten out sooner or later... now I have to make sure you are safe, too, which is a hell of a lot harder than just looking after myself!"

Remembering the handle she spied earlier, Phiona went over to the dresser and moved the towel.  It was a straight-razor that sat next to the shaving bowl.  She grabbed it up and slipped it into her right boot, just in case.  The towel, she rearranged so that it looked like no one had touched it.  Looking back to Tierria, Phiona realized this was the first time she ever spoke to her friend in anger.  Suddenly she felt bad about that so she grumbled a lame apology, "Look, I'm not really mad at you... more just angry about this stupid situation." She crossed her arms and sighed in frustration.  And Phiona wasn't about to tell Tierria that she fell in a well before getting captured by these goons!  Keeping her voice low in case anyone was eavesdropping, she said,  "They sent in a man to interrogate me.  Dray is his name and I don't think he is really one of them.  He may be a wizard, too, but anyway, these people think we are cold-blooded killers because we defended ourselves against their people!  Unbelievable!"  

Phiona started pacing again.  Still talking in a hushed way, she asked, "You said you were with Elraralia?  Did she follow you?  And what's this about a dwarf?"

Putting her own feelings aside for the moment, Elraralia looked at the newcomers whom had arived with Luca, but she had failed to properly notice until now.  A dark elf..and a human.  Well, the dark elf would be a nice addition, she may be dark but at least she was an elf.

Once everyone had scaled the wall, she motioned for them all to crouch down so as to be out of site.

"Alright, any ides on a plan?" she asked them all, hating the fact that she needed to.

"Me? I'm just someone who wants to make some honest coin while being on a personal journey. This is just some mess I got myself caught up in." Severine didn't bother to see if Dray looked like he believed him or not, and was staring at the wall instead. "If you want to know what's so personal about it...well I'm looking for the murderer of my family. My childhood friend Tierria and I had set out from Uderza to find the killer. As fate would have it, we found out the an assassin by the name of The Ivory Fox might be connected or know something about the murder of my family. Then, after helping out a merchant to try to have some amount of funds for my journey...we end up in a suspicious village, and I'm now captured by a group of rebels who i thought was bandits...and they think I'm the enemy..."

Severine finally looked up at the man. "And that's my story. Now that I'm starting to come to my senses, I feel like the both of us want the samething. To bring down these so-called 'mercenaries'."

Luca stared out over city and after some thought, said aloud "Y'all do know that the element of surprise was never ours, right?". Turning now to look at the group, the half-elf continued "These people know she has friends, and that we wasn't too happy seeing her off. I'm not saying they know we up here, but I am saying that you cant expect them sitting around for midday tea!"

Luca looked at them "I be figuring that I can work a rope or lock faster than any you, so when we go in, I'll get the others as to boost the odds while you kids do...whatever it is you do best" the half-elf concluded, with a wink to Marmalan.

*Dray cracks a little smile as the mans story reminds him of his own reason for setting out from his village*

"Well we do want for the same thing....in more than one area...then you will help take down these mercenaries...this legion with us...I know I would rather have some one of you skill as an ally than as an enemy.....My father was murdered by bandits when I was but a child myself...the bandits were fended off and he made them retreat, but the wounds they caused him killed him. I set out from my village much for the same reason you did in an attempt to find his killers and do unto them what they did to him....we appear to have kindred souls....will you give your word that you will help us...fight on the side of good and rescue this city....and if you do I give my word as a warrior that I will help you find this Ivory Fox to get clues as to your parents killers."

All right -Said Sable- That looks pretty like my idea. You unlock the doors and during that I'll cover your back. The others entertain them while we take Tierria and the others out. Protect the door but, if you meet too much problems, go out and attack them as the get out of the house. We'll try to make our way through the window -Sable looked one by one at all of them- Don't run risk. Just distract them while we rescue the prisoners. Are you ready?

OOC: Sev do you want us to enter right now or do you need more time with Dray and the others?

Crawling across the roof, Elraralia peeked into the window, and was surprised with what met her eyes.  Right there, were all the people that they needed to rescue, except for Severine, that is.  But they weren't alone, the room was filled with gaurd like people, and three others that appeared to be in charge.

Crawling back over, Elraralia crowched down next to them all.

"Ok, minor set back, Severine isn't in the room with the rest of them, so we are going to have to find him.  But everyone else appears to be in the room right next to us..conveniantly enough.  But there are also nine others or so gaurding them. " she concluded, and then turned to Luca
"Since you are so wonderful at the lock picking, your going to be the one who is going to have to go and look for Severine, as the doors are all going to be locked.  The rest of us can take on this room, some acting as a diversion, as Sable put it.  But now we have to decide, are we going to get them out through this window, or the door.."

Tierria backed away a bit to give Phiona her space. She knew the woman wasn't having a good day, and Tierria was hoping there was something she could do to make it better. But that would have to wait.

"Well knowing Elrararia, she would follow me. As for the dwarf known as Fflewdur, he was someone we met in the tavern. He said he saw some blood at the gazeboo. That's what led us to going there, and me getting captured by these men." Tierria sighed, and stared at the door. "Is Sevy okay?"

Severine nodded. "I guess we're much more alike than either of us thought. And thank you for your offer good sir."

Severine immediately started to feel comfortable around this man, a total turn around to his feelings towards him a few minutes ago. If everything went well, his group could merge with the rebels to get rid of Blackwine and his men once and for all.

"Talk to your allies about this. Let's see what they say. I'll be more than happy to aid you all as long as your intentions are good. I am deeply sorry that my companions and I can't make up for what we did in the past, but we'll surely help you all with a brighter future."

*Dray cracks a smile with Severine's words*

"I will discuss this with those in the other room, I believe I can sway them over to letting you help us, they need all the help they can get"

*Dray opens the door and leaves the room....as he does he gets a funny feeling that something is up, but looks around and sees nothing out of place so he shrugs it off and goes over to Ardan*

"My friend your captives know not what they did....and they regret what happened to your men and the fact they supplied a evil man with weapons. They want to atone for what they have done and have agreed to fight the legion with us. The female has a warriors spirit and she will help us as for the man....him and I have something in common and I know he is genuine in wanted to help us take down Blackwine."

*Dray turns to the rest of the room to speak to them*

"Would you not rather have these 2 as allies than captives or enemies...they did defeat 30 of your men...they wish to help and we all could use great warriors like them in the upcomming assult...put your personal feelings aside and look ahead towards the greater goal and see what needs to be accomplished and how these 2 can help get you there."

*Dray scans the entire room watching and waiting for the reactions on those inside*

"Severine?  I wouldn't know, but I hope so.  He's taken a lot of hard knocks to the head lately..." She stopped pacing and looked at Tierria.  "You mean you didn't see him when they brought you in here?  He was right out there when they carried my chair into this room." Phiona pointed toward the front room.  "Damn them!  What did they do with him?"

She paused for a moment and then went to the door and placed her ear against it, listening, while motioning to the healer to stay quiet.

Ardan nodded briefly at Dray. He believed the words of his long time friend, for he knew that Dray was one not to tell a lie. And even if he did, he wouldn't lie to a friend. He felt bitter inside that such a misunderstanding would be taken so far, but in order to stop Blackwine and his men, they had to concetrate on the matter at hand. Afterwards, they would mourn for their lost comrades.

"Dray speaks the truth," said Ardan. "Our plan was to have them fight for us...but now we have a divine purpose. And besides, it's the least that Severine and his party could do for us. We must focuse ont he future...always. That's what got us this far, hevn't it?"

Karla nodded. "Spoken like a true hero" she said. "I feel fortunate to have someone on your side. As well as someone like Dray. In a few minutes, we'll take Severine, Phiona, and Tierria out their rooms. Right now, I'll need someone to report to the others while the rest of us get into action with planning."

"I'll take someone with me and report" said Julia. "I'm also going to inform William of our situation. He should be somewhere around the village."

"Right." Richart walked away from the wall. "Take the prisioners from out their rooms."
