Everything was ordinary in Gloomdiamonds. Well, ordinary for a Gloondiamonds standard. Vampires seemed to be behind every corner these days, for one thing. But, nothing was too
out of the ordinarya. Except for the giant shadow. But no - one noticed that.
No - one ever does.
Ryukan was in his teensy room, playing with a trinket. In reality, he was merely distracting his hands, while his mind was whizzing away, thinking about plans. Things. Then he noticed something strange. He didn't know what it was, but he knew that something was wrong. He got up, and walked out the door, immediately walking straight into Airith, who seemed just as distressed as himself.
"Can you feel it?" Said Airith.
"Yes. Something's wrong." Replied Ryukan.
They walked through the coridoor, peering backwards and forwards, unsure of what was wring.
Suddenly, they came to the main hallway, and they realised what was wrong.
Time had stopped.
Everyone was simply standing there, frozen beteween one heartbeat and the next, between two gulps of ale, simply stopped.
And they suddenley realised why.
At the end of the coridoor, there was a bunch of humanoids in full plate armour, with helmets obscuring their faces from the two dwarves. They had long blue cloaks, and one of them carried a large banner.
It was tall, and blue. On it was a semicircle, with teeth in it like a gear, the curve pointed downwrds, and a sword over it.
"There's no running. We've surrounded the place, and anyone else whom we've found to be a black arrow besides yourselves has been taken into the cages in our ship."
The knight took off his helmet, revealing a round face, with grey hair and a short grey beard, as well as deep blue eyes which flashed with surpressed fury. He had a scar on his cheek whichhandn't been there the last time. It was Imic, a slight rival of Ryukan. Not in a cosmilogical sense, but he tried his best.
He leaned on his hammer.
"You shouldn't have left you tablet bahind, it had lists of all the spies inside of Undarak. Several of them even confessed to being spies. We found all thevidence we needed, though. In the end every single one of them ended up confessing. Well, not all of them. But sometimes actions speak louder then words."
"If you're quite finished giving me a lecture on interrogation, could we cut to the chase?"
"We're taking you to prison."
"A prison with many magical barriers."
Imic eyed him. Suddenly the stern face turned slightly softer, and he sighed a long, long sigh.
"Just get in the ship."
After some hassle, they succeeded in getting them into cages, to be grought to Undarak. It was a long, long ride.
I'm going to stop there, because I'm tired. More larpter.
Sorry about the decrease in quility at the end, I need bed. Please imagine it was more realistic for now, 8'll eiditl it larter.
