Re: Hunting the Sword of Nytos (Mythic Artifact Hunt)

Post by Beleg on Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:39 pm

Beleg's boots crunched softly in the snow as he slowly climbed Saridel in an attempt to find a specific cave. The cave itself was supposedly quite spacious, but it was the tunnel at the rear that interested the Knight-Commander of Ridbrad. According to a group of dwarven miners, they had stumbled upon it during a blizzard in an attempt to find shelter, and had felt an odd draft coming from the tunnel, burning hot yet with a refreshing edge of coolness. By the time they had tried going back, however, they were unable to find it again. An odd occurrence to be sure, but nothing particularly special to anyone with access to some of the wonders one could find within the hollow mountain. Beleg, on the other hand, had been interested to note that it was supposedly in the same area that he had mapped out to start searching for the Sword of Nytos, an area that had a largely-unexplored cave system that was rumored to go even deeper than the Dragon's Maw. He really needed to get down there, and something in him told him he was going in the right direction.

His knights were told he was going on a personal quest when he left three days prior, which understandably shocked them. He had not gone on a quest in several decades, as there was not necessarily a need for someone of his strength to do so. For him to feel the need to do so meant that they would be out of their ken, no matter how much they wished to help, to see him actually have to put effort into a fight. He loved his men. They were his family, and he himself had no idea what he was walking into, and he had appreciated it deeply when none of them asked to come with him, only asking him to come home safely. No matter how dysfunctional his merry band of misfits actually were, no matter if the rest of the world viewed them as the greatest warriors in the five realms, all of the Knights of Ridbrad knew that Beleg would gladly give his life for any of them, and that if they had tagged along in this endeavor he would spend more time worrying about them than what his actual purpose was.

Trudging through the snow, the Seraph came upon a crag in the rock that he nearly fell into. Peering inside, he let out a genuine smile at what he had discovered. A cozy cave, with a small tunnel at the back that let up a warm draft. It was certainly smaller than the dwarves had made it out to be, but then again he was far larger than the average dwarf. Wedging his pack inside before squeezing in himself, he began to sit for a moment and rest. The tunnel would be rough on him, as it seemed to be around three foot by three foot, so he wanted to regain as much of his energy as possible. Nytos knew he'd need it later.

Positioning himself at the entrance to the small tunnel, Beleg crouched and grimaced at the awkward position. Damned dwarves and their problematic size. Making his way forward slowly, he found the slight incline and winding turns slightly disconcerting. He had no idea what was waiting for him ahead, but the few hints he had gotten from the holy texts had spoken of several tests that had to be completed. Knowing his luck, he probably had to complete these while fending off any number of the cavern's denizens. Cursing under his breath, he inhaled deeply, then exhaled as slowly as he could to settle his nerves. This wasn't like him. Normally, he was deadly calm during a fight, preferring to stay relaxed instead of getting emotional. After what felt like hours, the tunnel began to expand, something that both relieved him and made him wary. Stepping out into a cave large enough to hold him in his draconic form, his clear blue eyes widened in shock. Before him stood a massive door made of mithril, inlaid with adamant, gold, and precious stones, all placed to show an inscription in a language that he had never seen before. The second thing he noticed, however, was that the entire arrangement also made up the holy symbol of Nytos.

The sigils were dull and lifeless, something that bothered Beleg immensely. Stepping forward, he scanned the door for any sign of what needed to be done before he noticed something odd. A small voice in the back of his head, hardly a whisper at the edges of hearing, that sounded so familiar it hurt. Eyes the color of glacial ice flicked over the inscriptions before noticing that, despite never having seen the language, he was able to read it plain as day. Something told him that this was the language of the Divine, the language supposedly spoken in Heaven. A language that began flowing from his mouth naturally, as if all Seraphs were born to speak it.

He must have stood there for another hour, absentmindedly pulling some jerked venison and bread from his pack as a quick meal as he read. The translations were fairly complex, but it came to him even easier than Common. It seemed to be fairly straightforward, although it was slightly vexing attempting to figure out what it meant. Supposedly, the prophesied Warrior of Light was considered to be Nytos' firstborn, and could be considered some sort of divine prince. Only he would be able to open the door by providing proof of his heritage, and then would be subjected to three tests before being able to claim his birthright in order to judge his worthiness.

Pulling off his cloak for the moment, the knight pondered his predicament. How was he supposed to open the door, if it could only be opened by someone with "proof"? For the first time in this quest of his, he began to despair. This, of course, was when the whispering voice spoke up once more. Beleg was unable to hear any words, but a warm feeling entered his heart. In something akin to a trance, the Seraph stood up, removing the glove from his right hand and walking forward. Stretching out his arm, he placed it upon the sigil in the center of the door before it sank in, as if by magic. The door began to glow red, and extreme pain shot through the Knight-Commander as he snapped out of whatever was influencing him and began to panic. His eyes hurt as they glowed brighter than they ever had, and his wings tore from his back hard enough that it hurt even more than the first time he had done so. They spread to their full span, wracked with spasms as the pain increased before letting up in a sweet and blessed moment, his arm being released from the door as it glowed once more, opening itself for the panting swordsman. Groaning, he stood up and retracted his wings, deciding to think about the full implications of the door's opening later. Picking up his cloak and putting it back on, Beleg left his pack where it was. From here on out, it was no longer camping or dungeoneering. There was going to be something ahead, and he had no idea whether or not he would make it back alive. In that case, a bit of food and a bedroll would only slow him down.

Stepping through the door, Beleg's hand began to twitch. Whether out of excitement or nervousness, he wasn't sure, but it was a sure sign that his training was kicking in. There was a battle to come, and he would be damned if he wasn't ready for it.

Re: Hunting the Sword of Nytos (Mythic Artifact Hunt)

Post by Beleg on Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:08 pm

The cavern Beleg found himself in was utterly massive, with beautiful, smooth white marble making up the walls and floors, and pillars made of glowing crystals illuminating the area. The glow from the pillars was gorgeous, hinting that it was enchanted sapphire. Entranced by the beauty, Beleg was startled when he heard the wailing of a newborn. Turning around, he found two young women facing him, incensed with each other with both holding onto a babe that must have only just been born. One was still alive, disturbed by the bickering, and the other looked to have been stillborn. Saddened by the poor child's untimely end, Beleg walked over, quieting both of the mothers as he said a quick prayer for each of the babies, one to ensure safe passage to the afterlife and one to wish a happy life upon the newborn. One of the mothers spoke up as he stood easily in front of them. [color=green]"Hello, handsome! From the spurs and belt, I can tell you're a knight, aren't you? Well then, Sir, could you possibly help us here? This utter BITCH is trying to steal my baby since hers was born dead!"[.color]

Understandably, the other woman, the one holding the stillborn at the time, was infuriated by the insinuation that she had anything but good intentions. "Sir Knight, please don't believe her lies! She stole my child away from me in the night, and left her own in his place! You MUST believe me!"

Beleg, for his part, immediately saw the issue. With two distraught women, there was no way to truly tell who was telling the truth and who was lying. In order to do the right thing, in order to be just, he needed more information, whether that was proof of one's words, a witness, or hard evidence. Reaching over, he took both children from the mothers, kissing the lost one on the forehead before stomping his foot against the floor. Placing the corpse in the hole created by his immense strength, he carefully built the rubble up around him to create a small grave, once more giving him a prayer. Turning his attention to the babe still crying in his arms, he bounced the young one back and forth while making shushing noises, getting a happy gurgle and some giggles in response. Thinking on the current predicament, he adjusted himself so that he could draw Vigilance in a moment, purposefully making the motion noticeable and drawing attention to his sword. "Ladies, please settle down. I have a solution. Would it not make sense for you to share the child, if there is no proof of either of your claims? It is quite simple. He merely needs to be cut into two equal pieces, and each of you will get exactly half. That way, there is no more arguing."

The woman who had spoken up first scoffed, and replied to his rather callous approach to the situation, even if he had spoken calmly and with a certain level of wisdom. "Yeesh, a little harsh, don't you think? Fine. If I can't have the child, then at least she won't."

Appalled at both the suggestion and the casual response from the other woman, the second mother panicked, beginning to cry and beg the Knight-Commander to let the child live. "Please, Sir Knight, give her the child! I do not want for him to come to harm simply because this issue cannot be resolved otherwise! Please, I'll do anything! Just let him live!"

Smiling, the Seraph looked down at the child and cooed, getting another cry of joy before handing him to the second mother, her tears ending and a confused look appearing on her face. "You have shown that you truly care for the little one, and would willingly give him up if it meant his own happiness and safety. Those are the traits of a true and loving mother, and it is all the proof I need that you are the right choice to raise him."

Smiling at him, the first mother spoke up, startling him as the three began softly glowing blue, along with the small grave he had dug. "The wisdom to solve an issue where the right thing to do is unclear, and the will and desire to bring justice for even the least of us. We hereby declare you worthy, Your Highness."

And with that, they disappeared, the damage from his impromptu burial even repairing itself as the glow in the pillars dulled to a subtle light that danced along the room, as if in approval. Shaking his head at the odd occurrences, Beleg walked towards the opening that had made itself clear, keeping an eye out for whatever was to come next.

Re: Hunting the Sword of Nytos (Mythic Artifact Hunt)

Post by Beleg on Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:03 pm

Walking into the next chamber, Beleg was amazed to find what appeared to be a shrine, a gorgeous affair of gold and rubies, with veins of the gemstone running through the marble of the room. Walking up the steps, he hesitated as a similar glow to before began to occur, before the sensation of an earthquake rumbling forced him to stumble backwards before he gained his footing. The Knight-Commander of Ridbrad fell into his normal relaxed stance as a figure appeared further up the gargantuan steps, a familiar being that stood larger than even he did when he took on his draconic form. His mentor, friend, and someone very dear to the hearts of both himself and his brother Alucard...

"Lord Akatosh, what are you doing here? Is this another test?" Beleg was understandably confused. The red dragon was not anywhere near Saridel, and it would have been impossible for the eldest of the five dragons to get down here. It wasn't that he wasn't happy to see him, something was just grating on his nerves. That something caused his muscles to move without his permission, dodging the massive tail that had lashed out and crushed the stairwell next to him. "Lord Akatosh! Why are you attacking me?!"

Smoke billowed from the ancient dragon's mouth as he laughed at his old student, the Seraph's blood boiling at the promise of a fight despite himself the moment he spoke. "Little dragonling, do you still not understand? It does not matter at the moment why, only that in a fight you must DO. Your reaction speed has improved, certainly, but you are still slowed by your stubborn insistence upon needing a purpose. FIGHT ME!"

Drawing his blade in less than a second, his muscles moving him forward faster than the untrained eye could hope to see, Beleg ducked under the return stroke of his teacher's tail, lifting Vigilance in order to block a massive claw that came down in an overhead strike that drove him into the marble stairs, quite literally. Groaning, the Seraph heaved the dragon's mighty paw off from him and pulled one leg free from the hole it found itself in down to the knee. Getting a footing on the edge, he jumped out and did a flip over the tail that swept towards him. Catching his balance, he brought his sword around to face the smirking dragon, and called out to the blood that was burning within his arms. His eyes began to change as his muscles swelled, but they immediately reverted themselves. He understood the meaning perfectly. He had to do this under his own power, and not the power granted to him by Dragon Magic.

Thinking through the fight ahead, he realized that the movements themselves were too lazy, even for Lord Akatosh. The dragon had started getting more and more violent with his two students as their training progressed towards the end, pressuring them into using the full weight of the power singing in their veins. This was more of a casual spar compared to those desperate days, something he would have done early on. It was all wrong, and Beleg realized that he could finish this in an instant. He had progressed far beyond those days, and it showed in the subtle shift of muscles that were all the warning that the dragon would get before the knight flashed in, getting in close before swinging upward in a massive strike, nearly bisecting him. The chuckling began once more, and this time it was in a voice of pride as he glowed crimson. "Well, my little dragonling, you certainly have improved. You saw through my behavior, and acted on instincts to make a tactical decision that ended a battle before it could truly become devastating. You have my blessing, Your Highness."

As Lord Akatosh disappeared, Beleg sheathed Vigilance and walked up to the shrine, listening as the whispering voice in the back of his head finally became clear. "My firstborn, you are finally able to hear my voice, and thus the third test will be completed as you take up your blade. You are the leader of my armies, my heir. Remember who you are, and listen to your heart. Congratulations, my son..."

As Nytos' words echoed in his mind, the knight looked upon the shrine, pulling aside the curtains to find the same seal that was on the original door. Placing his palm on it, a golden light began to spread outward in ripples as he pulled back, a hilt appearing. Grasping it, he drew out a weapon the same size as Vigilance itself, with a balance that seemed perfect despite it's unwieldy appearance. What would be considered the blade was a tapered cylinder made up of three rotating segments that blended smoothly with each other, the only indication of this being that the center rotated in the opposite direction of the base third and the end third. Red runes glowed along the odd weapon, and Beleg gave it an experimental swing, being shocked when it carved effortlessly through the shrine that had held it.

Letting it dissolve into golden light, Beleg turned around and began making his way back out of the caves. He needed to return to Hilnadreg Peak, as he had been gone too long. He was almost positive something was going to go horribly wrong, since he wasn't there to ensure that the others weren't going to brain each other in a freak accident involving a soup spoon and a litter of kittens. That, however, was a story for another time...
