The Bandit's Folly


With the majority of Camelot still being ravaged by bandits and financial strife, Vaterra had remained relatively safe during this time. Well, that is, until three moons ago.

A cloud of smoke erupted from the other-side of Grubor's, a lone rider came running from it, his mare drenched in sweat and near exhaustion -- he rode away from the clashing of sword and whistle of loose arrows.

The Calderon men-at-arms that did not travel with the Dominus to Camelot were putting up one heck of a fight. Outnumbered by atleast thirty, the men-at-arms formed a shield wall and allowed citizens to flee behind it, though many citizens were being targeted directly by the numerous rogues that poured into the square.

Once most of the citizens had made it behind the shield wall or into the Calderon Manor, the men-at-arms began to advance towards the insurgents that were engaged with them. It was quick to see that they would have to break formation to fight these brigands and so they did. It seemed nearly hopeless as the number of Calderon fighters was reduced to no more than twelve and the rogues encircled them. The guard's sergeant called them to form a testudo, the few guards still standing followed their orders and the fighting suddenly stopped.

The rogues seemed confused, they dropped their arms and began to drop to their knees one by one. The terrified and blood drenched guardsmen began to pry for quick glimpses of what was going on until they heard a familiar voice: the Dominus.

They stood idle as their arms fell to their sides, though their grasps were, indeed, tight. As they looked around the square they saw familiar faces; Calderon men-at-arms had taken positions at the entrance of the square: several archers followed behind a shield-wall at each entrance.

"Find their leader, kill the rest; tend to our wounded, citizens first, yourselves after." Tommen said as he entered the square.

Hours passed and the majority of the rogues had been executed, the citizens tended to and the guards recovering. Tommen sat upon his balcony, hands covered in drying blood, a corpse laying behind him.

"Send me the next candidate, sergeant."

A man, clad in steel, looked down to the corpse and then back to his Lord. "Yes, Dominus." He nodded to two other guards and the corpse was carried out. Moments later, the enlisted soldier returned with a single, scrawny rogue, shackled and bloodied; the guardsman kicked him in the back of the knees and he fell onto them before Tommen.

"Who sent you?" Tommen said quietly as he cracked his knuckles, the dimly lit hall barely revealing his face.

"I don't gotta tell you nothin', mister. We'z just making a living like all the other fol-" He was cut off as Tommen interjected with a light nod, which summoned the guardsmen to press an arming sword against the rogue's throat.

"Wrong answer, friend. I'll give you one more shot. I fear that I've killed the rest of your people, so if you don't talk; I may never get an answer." Tommen shrugged bored-like.

The rogue looked down at the blade briefly and then to Tommen, a tear running down his face, this followed by another and then several more. "Chief's name is Jovil, he's a big tall feller with a bronze arm, das' all I know, I swear it! Now, please, please, don't kill me, my lord."

Tommen smiled lightly as he nodded to the guardsmen. The blade was removed from the rogue's throat and he was allowed to stand, though still shackled and under the control of the guardsmen.

"Break his kneecaps, take one of his eyes, his thumbs and take his ability to speak. A filthy robber and traitor; there's no good for him in this world anyways."

The poor soul attempted to scream, his pleas only met with a pommel to the back of the skull.

"Yes, Dominus." the sergeant said quietly as he dragged the unconscious brigand away. The last thing the poor chap saw was the Count of Vaterra calmly washing his hands and returning to his chair.

The Bandit's Folly


This plot will be played out whenever enough people are interested. Bandits from the north have raided Vaterra; Tommen and his guardsmen on set on a path of vengeance, there is a very slim chance that much fair-justice will be involved.. there will, however, be blood.

I'm looking for someone to play the bandit leader: Jovil Elkskin and atleast ten bandits.. please post whether or not you're interested blow.

The only application I ask for: Username -> Character Age -> Combat Class -> Time-zone.
