This is a new story that me and my buddy cooked up in less than half an hour. We expect it to continue onwards with as many other people as possible so invite your friends!

here's the scoop(keep in mind this is just a draft and may not have much to do with the actual roleplaying):

reality_man1: My leige! My Lord Marcelius! Oh how am I humbled by your very presence.
Lord Mark: oh, Sir Matteus!
Lord Mark: how be ye?
reality_man1: I fare quite well, save for my servant, I had to put the pitiful thing down, the smell!
Lord Mark: Say no more, I just underwent a similar procedure with my mistress. Caught her stealing from my vault.
reality_man1: Tis so hardy these times to find good followers. What are we gentlist of men to do?
reality_man1: I dare say!
Lord Mark: There be only one such a  thing and that is to find a good executioner
reality_man1: ah I must agree, my fair lord, but my subjects whine and bicker such... We are deciders... Do they not respect our mandate?
Lord Mark: My thinking is that they aren't punished enough. They believe that just because they are free in their daily routine they can rise against anyone who makes them feel unworthy.
reality_man1: Yes quite... and what of these recent rumours of an usurping bunch? I've had my men comb the city for conspirators... They have yet found anything... Oh they are as incompetent as all the rest... Mikrai!
Lord Mark: The same rumours I have heard, sadly. If there are conspirators among us, they certainly are good at hiding. Perhaps they have risen among the ranks of our men and earned our trust?
reality_man1: Trust! My lord... You don't pertend to think... The very foundation of our order! A lack of trust, will tear down everything your forfathers have put in place!
Lord Mark: That is what ails me, my friend. I was hoping you could have one of your men infiltrate their group if it even exists, so we could learn the reason to their uprising.
reality_man1: My best man, Tyve, a pupil  of mine from a young age. I have even taught him to fight with martial scything knives... The only one I trust fully... I send for him.
Lord Mark: Very well, I only hope he will not be recognized as your pupil or worse, be convinced to join their cause.
reality_man1: His true colours come to surface in the quiet of the night. So unnoticed he is, that his own shadow can't find him. And fear not... His loyalty is to me, as mine is to you.
Lord Mark: Excellent. Now I must go, for I am to prepare a feast in honor of my daughter's new engagement. Fare thee well and send thy pupil my best.
reality_man1: With humility my lord, a good evening to you and your fine family
reality_man1: Good... He suspects nothing
reality_man1: Tyve... Follow him, report back in the twilight.
reality_man1: This dominion will be mine... hehe... heheheh.. Ha HAHAHAAHAH!!!! RAAAHAHAHHA!!

Elwinn Amaroth

Trapped in a world that is not his own, Elwinn hides amongst ordinary people so that he may blend in long enough to figure out how to get back home.
Describing him as an ordinary man would be far from the truth, however he does his best to act normal in the eyes of others.
His athletic abilities are unmatched and he is often scaling the walls at night to get in and out of the castle.
His friends think him a mystery, yet they enjoy his company because he is charming and skilled in many ways including the art of entertainment.



Tyve, the Invisible

Always around but no where to be found. No one sees him unless he has purpose to. He can hide from even his own shadow, and therein lies his true mysterious power...

But he's not completely unseen. He is the citadel's head of the Black Guarderie and the right hand of the Dominion's infamous Inquisitor, Sir Matteus.

However... at unpredictable occasions no less... He is a loud drunkard. We never see him enter or leave the taverns, but when he's had a few pints, Tyve's true colors surface. He is arrogant, a show off and above all, a womanizer. But townsfolk will generally let him do as he will, perhaps even join in on the evening ruckus, for even as a slurring drunk, his blades can strike the throats of any who aggravate his ego...

Tyve the invisible was assigned by Inquisitor Mattaeus to follow the Grand Lord Marcelius on his way to the Northern Keep and spy on His Lordship's delegations.

You could walk in the same corridor, but never even notice the man in the shadow pass you by, watching you.

Tyve followed the Dominion Lord Marcelius and his aides. They were heading down the Grand Sky Hall with purpose towards the imposing Northern Keep.

Great windows lined the hall, looking out over a sheer cliff and the ocean waves crashing far below. In the distance beyond, the imperial capital shined brilliantly under a darkening winter sunset, and the flowing sails of ships can be seen as traders and travelers were settling into or leaving port. The city that never rests.

Tyve has always been one to appreciate scenery like this; he allowed himself a moment to take in the view. While Inquisitor Mattaeus has him do all the despicable tasks better left un-muttered in the face of public scrutiny, Tyve is at heart an admirer of the dramatic and serene. "You are irony in and of yourself, old boy," Tyve dared say aloud as he stood at the foot of the many three hundred foot high windows. A passing nobleman glanced back trying to spot the source of the disembodied voice. Tyve payed little caution; the nobleman simply walked away, bewildered and confused.

Returning to his assigned task, Tyve moved forward regaining pace with the humble Lord's convoy of advisers and servants. It was a long walk down the Legendary Hall. The enormous Northern Keep stood alone out in the sea, connected by a massive leveled bridge that allowed access from the plateau on which the Citadel was built.

The Grand Sky Hall is renowned for its marble floored promenade, gloriously decorated with drooping velvet drapes, fresh water fountains and gardens and pieces of art representing the Imperial Heroes and Kings of old, while congregating lords, merchant kings and scholars from all over the Dominion contemplate fate or business as they traverse the Hall. It was a peaceful stride from one end to the other, while the Heavens' Beacon at the peek of the towering Keep bears down night and day through the skylight ceiling high above.

This was not however the only way to make one's way across the mighty bridge. Beneath the Grand Sky Hall were levels of markets and streets running the course the bridge for the Dominion's merchants and craftsmen to sell wares at and walk or ride on the speedier horse or carriage on their way to the Northern Keep. Soldiers of the army or of Tyve's very own Dark Guarderie marched the length of the bridge, constantly keeping order and maintaining a vigil watch on all.

This construct is truly the backbone of the Dominion, thought Tyve as he silently tailed his Lordship. The Citadel is powerful on its own, but it is merely a fortress for the peasants. The Northern Keep, now, that is the jewel.

It is more than a seat of government... It is more than an archive of ancient knowledge... Its what lies deep within the Tower that gives untold power to any who can control it. Tyve wondered if even the Dominion's most elite understood what lay deep beneath its feet. He wondered, what the Inquisitor was ultimately planning, and what he really knew...

Even Tyve, the invisible, the shadow, was beginning to feel unease and apprehension at the coming storm. It was unusual he felt this way, he was accustomed to complete control, but that luxury was fading away...

Regardless, he shrugged those thoughts away for now. He and the Enlightened Lord's group were approaching the end of the Hall, the vast Northern Tower looming ahead. Tyve had a task entrusted to him and he would see it through.

Finished working for the evening, Elwinn Amaroth scanned the market with his eyes for any kind of information he could get on the people of the city.

Elwinn stood in the middle of a crowd, watching as all the villagers gathered around stalls. They seemed to be under some kind of spell, rushing towards some kind of ultimate goal that had been written into their minds. He took a moment to study a specific individual. A young woman who was running from stall to stall looking for something.

Following her through the market without being noticed, Elwinn examined the items she picked up and placed in her sachel. Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary - she had gathered some fruits and vegetables, a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine. Why these things were causing anyone to be in any sort of hurry was beyond him. Where he came from, time had no meaning, no purpose. He could spend years doing absolutely nothing without caring about anything around him. However, he preferred the company of others, spending his time enjoying frivalties of life. The woman he had been following disappeared into a dark alley near the market and Elwinn did not think that stalking her would be of any further use to him so he backed off and returned to the market.

The crowd had dissipated quite a bit since he last saw it and a stall merchant was packing up for the evening. For some reason, Elwinn felt that he needed to approach the lonely merchant and ask what they had been selling. "Pies," the man said quietly without looking up for even a second. "Are there any left unpacked? I'll take them off your hands." said Elwinn with a grin, looking around the stall and back to the man. "I'm afraid not. You'll have to come back tomorrow." he replied, still not looking up.

Elwinn disappeared from the stall without a sound, taking to the wall behind the stall. Nobody saw him leave nor did they suspect anything was wrong. The stall merchant finished packing up and did not think twice about the man who asked him about his pies.
