A Clandestine Meeting

Post by Order of Atrum Veneficus on Mon Feb 22, 2016 2:47 am

The magis of Atrum Veneficus have been reaching out to their magic using brothers in Cruor, to try and help them in their struggle. They had set up a meeting to discuss terms for an alliance to send aid in the form of supplies, volunteers, and soldiers to help defend them and their borders from the other dominions of Cruor who would steal their throne.

Korvir sent word that a representative of the Alesius family would meet the magis of Atrum and Druids. Raknir hesitantly agreed to attend himself, unsure of what the intentions behind the Druids involvement was. He was accompanied by a unit of Blood Guard.

The Dominion of Nastis responded, having no idea that the there would be a party from Korvir attending, and agreed to meet with the Druids and Atrum.

The party from Atrum Veneficus arrived at the secret meeting place before the Drui, Nira IvoryWolf, the middle sibling of Sorac and Karos, was leading the group. She had a group of Umbra Guard with her, as well as a two generals and a man in charge of much of Atrum's trade, Otoen Nightseer.

Raknir would arrive soon after, the division of Blood Guard led by his most trusted guard Israk who scanned the area for potential threats and took note of any visible weaponry the party from Atrum may have on them. Among the guards are a slender one wearing robes over Blood Guard Armor with a tattered red cloak veiling all but the eyes. This one stood aback from the group, as rear guard as they traveled.

Nira IvoryWolf approached the group and bowed respectfully "Hello, honorable magi of Cruor. We are pleased you could make it to this meeting. As you know Atrum has been very willing to aid you and your people against those who would do you harm, we would like to finally discuss this in official terms here today."

Raknir bowed curtly before stepping forward, Israk fluidly moving out of his way and into the ranks of the other guards. Raknir was a tall man with hair black as night, and eyes silver as starlight, dressed in black and gold suit covered with a silver fur lined cloak. Around his neck he wore a bloodstone, the symbol of the blood magi whick has been outlawed in the territory of the other dominions.

"I am honored to attend. Any help in this perilous time is appreciated."

"We are willing to give quite a bit of help, anything you and your people need to strengthen your position and military aid."

Otoen walked up and bowed "I am Otoen Nightseer, in charge of Atrum Veneficus' exports and trade lines. While Nira here is in charge of aid, I am here for more of an economic purpose. Our king wants to set up economic ties between your dominion and our nation in the form of trade routes."

In the mists of the nearby forested border a small group of cloaked figures would emerge from the fog and and the tree's moving silently and clad in simple brown cloaks covering them mostly head to toe, now and then glimpses of simple leather and metal armors from beneath. the one in the for front had a staff in his hands, and the others some had swords or daggers, Bows, and other martial weapons all stowed and not threatening. They walked meaningfully toward the group neither rushing nor slowly.

Israk instinctively draw his blade as the others appeared from the mists. He raised his free hand baring a claw gauntlet signaling the others to hold their positions as they approached.

"Who is it that approaches without consent? Answer honestly and your lives may be spared." Israk said spoke calmly with no hostility in his tone.

Nira smiles slightly and shakes her head "These must be our Drui friends, emerging silently out of the mist could be seen as threatening my friends."

:: the Drui came up to the group, or to the single man if he was significantly ahead of them, the man at the front with the staff spoke calmly and quietly but his voice seemed to carry a weight::
These lands are neutral, there is no consent needed to travel upon them, and as Miss Nira Ivorywolf stated, we are the other party that invited you here. :: looks at the drawn blade:: I would appreciate you putting that weapon away these talks are to be peaceful and amiable.

Israk slowly slid the blade into its scabbard and stepped back into the ranks of the others. He spoke no words to the man, untrusting still of his intentions in this affair.  

Raknir watched the event unfold without word or command to his soldier, knowing Israk understood the risks of his actions and would only act if necessary.  When things settle Raknir briefly acknowledged the man with a single cant of his head before turning back to Nira.

"Trades routes within the Dominion will not be a concern, however to guarantee routes that cross into Fulgur or Nastis domain is not something I can promise.  Fulgur has outlawed the Magi from their lands, even the sight of a Blood Stone end in death for the individual carrying it.  I cannot in good conscious agree to allow passage through territories whereby your lives may be in danger."

Otoen and Nira nodded, Nira spoke first "That should be fine, Atrum's position allows us to avoid the other Dominions and get to you rather easily. I will make sure to tell King of Nights Banesinger, I'm sure he will be pleased. Now about Military aid, we are willing to offer as much as you may need, within reason of course, but we don't know too much about your situation. If you could perhaps explain more about your place right now."

:: the majority of the Drui stayed back the one older gentleman moved up to the other leaders::My name is Cloch' I've come at the behest of Killian, High King of Spero to offer any humanitarian aid that either of your 2 kingdoms may need, aswell as any type of protection while travelling in area's under the Kingdom of Drui's purview. And obviously amicable trade relations would be welcome aswell, but is not a condition of aid

Raknir looked down at the man as he spoke, his brow furrowing slightly as the speaker came to a close. He glanced to Nira briefly to see if her face would confirm his suspicions. His silver eyes pierced through the Druid when he turned back to him.

"There is only one Kingdom in Cruor, it stands in the Dominion of Mount Korvir. So tell me, which insurrectionists have you called to these grounds behind our back."

Nira and Otoen both looked at Raknir and then to the Drui, they had no idea that Drui had also offered another kingdom of Cruor an audience "We had no idea another group of cruorians were coming..." Nira said with a diplomatic tone.

We invited a group from Nastis aswell. They have had their lands attacked and Pilaged by her neighbors, they too require aid. And nothing is done behind the backs of anyone, we sent invitations detailing our intent to both the Kingdoms of Korvir and Nastis

Raknir furrowed his brow but said nothing more on the matter, knowing that Nastis was much closer to this location than Korvir and must have been nearby by now.  He debated the threat briefly, looking to Israk who immediately moved to the back of the road where they have come from.  

In the distance the Nastis party was indeed approaching, only one man riding up on a blood spattered horse.  He stopped at a distance, the horse exhaling heavily and treading the dirt with its hooves.  Israk made note not to draw but kept his hand close to his blade as the man looked over the group.  

"What is this?  You invite us to dine with our enemies?" the man asked from afar as is horse stamped the ground anxiously.

The Atrumites stayed cautiously uninvolved with the new comers, allowing the Drui to explain themselves to the people they invited. Though Otoen did decide to address them politely "You have no enemies here, we wish to have talks of aiding one another against a common and much more threatening enemy, the third domain within Cruor."

The rider turned pulled the reins to stay the horse's temper, still the stallion turned the dirt beneath its hooves. The horse was barded with thin, tattered and red with fresh blood, the man's leather riding clothes stained dark with dripping blood. He reached from the sword at his side in anger, holding the hilt but hesitant to draw.

"No enemies here?" he asked, his voice seething with fury. "What of the men, my men who lay dead on the ground this day?"

Raknir said nothing but never broke the piercing gaze laid upon the rider, his eyes almost daring the man to come closer. Israk did not stay his hand when the man reached for his weapon, taking his own blade from its sheath once more, cutting his palm with the small blade edge jotting up from the back of the blade. The grooves in the tang allowed the blood to flow seamlessly down the blade as he brought it to the ready at his side.

Cloch' walked between  Israk and the  Rider. "We invited you here because you aswell have a need for our aid.  Please come so we can  tend to any wounds, and tell us what happened to your party. No one here will harm you, and you are not to  attack anyone her. this territory is not claimed by   either of your peoples nor Atrum. it is Neutral." Cloch' turned and looked squarely at Israk and again just as before, his voice was low and calm but at the same time it felt  powerful as if the earth trembled. " Israk, isn't it? please sheath your weapon now"

Otoen and Nira were near Cloch when he stopped forward, obviously being more protective of their magic user friends. Nira spoke first saying in a soft voice, the opposite of Cloch "Let's not have any bloodshed here so that we can speak as equals, at least for the time being? Nothing bad can come from that, I promise you. So lets all be calm and collected, shall we?"
