The Gathering of Power
Zalius was in the Fiery Flagon enjoying a hard earned meal with his comrades after doing a special project for the Mages Guild. The look of disgust on his face said it all when a large green-skinned half-orc with two blades charges towards him. “Zalus!!!!” the orc screamed and rushed over to Zalius and gave him a great big bear hug, lifting him off his feet in the process. “Zalus saved Aaks life, Zalus is Aaks friend.” Aak said. “Greetings Aak….why are you here?” Zalius said with a bit of disdain in his voice. “Zalus saved Aaks life from octopus face people. Aak stays with Zalus until Aak saves his life.” That is not necessary Aak, there is no need to stay with me….please.” Zalius pleaded. Zalus is Aaks friend, Aak will help you. Aak hope we fight something soon.” “Who’s your friend Zalius?” Said Rhogar, the large but quite lovable Dragonborn Paladin. “He’s nobody” said Zalius. “I don’t know Z.” said Killian the clepto ranger with a smirk of sarcasm in his voice, knowing Zalius’s dislike for orcs. “You guys seem like the best of friends.” No were not, he….I….was asked to do an assignment by the mages guild. They hired him and a few others to help out. We ran into some Ithilian and I stopped them from chewing on Aak’s brain…what little he has…and now he thinks I’m his friend and assumes he‘s going with us. “I don’t know Zalius” said Rhogar. “With Greevus out of the picture for the time being and a trip to the Feywild coming up, having a fighter with us could be quite useful.” Yea I agree“ said Killian. “It’s decided then, he comes with us. Any friend of Zalius is a friend of mine.” Rhogar stated. Zalius, knowing that there seems to be now way out of it nods his head in disgust. “We fight together!!!!, Aak have fun with his friend Zalus. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!” “Ioun save me” Zalius whispered.
