Belsar's Lament
Helgha sat patiently, waiting for Belsar to finish his rest. She didn't like that he was so careless and it grated on her instincts heavily, “Must you do this now? We are in hostile lands.”
Belsar dove a bit further into the water and swam out a bit, “What are you worried about, Helgha? Some wolves sneaking up on us? Everyone knows wolves don't hunt these areas.” he smiled knowing the words he spoke to be ironic considering the visions Aelred had seen just a few days ago. The news disturbed him, of course, but this wasn't the time yet for morbid moods, “Besides, these are my lands, Helgha. I'm not going to cower in them.”
“We've already been seen, lad, are you going to take the risk that they take action?” she snapped at him with quite a bit of venom.
The Marquis laughed it off, however, as he continued his swim, “Helgha, those cowards know better than to attack us. I'd have killed them by now; Even naked.” he slapped the wate

Itrivyr's Story II
                                                                        - Two Weeks Ago -
"Blasted demon! For the love of all that is holy, get OFF of me!" He picks the creature up and sets it off of him for the SIXTH time. He had pushed it once, but it made him have feelings of guilt, which were inevitably followed by embarrassment and frustration. "I have to finish repairing this BLASTED sail!" He began to focus on mending the canvas through magic. He didn't have much time. Divination had detected a major storm inbound and he was already bound to be caught in it for a day. He did not want to make it two. "If you wish to show your false affection, then be useful!" He felt a thump on his boot. He looked down and saw a piece of broken wood lying against it. The dragon looked up and its tail swayed gently. "You

Intrivyr's Story I

"Are you all ready? Remember, keep your eyes open and your wits about you. I am going to open myself up to to the energies around here and find it. If you let me die I will come through the Aether and butcher you families for generations to come... Is that clear?" the young blade-mage, Itrivyr, made the threat and it wasn't taken lightly.
He closed his eyes and let go of everything, he felt his consciousness melt like ice, extending his perception. It was a new trick, but he wanted to take it through another test. Last time he had used it to find a Rider, this time it was different. He figured that without its blood he would not be able to scry on it. That was okay, he had an alternative. He tested the area for fear. Sure

Three Brothers
Three brothers, one nightmare, together they would bring light. That's what everyone had said. They were always close growing up, each grew distant when two of the brothers moved to the city.
Steven grew up around small town of Greengate. It was quiet and each resident had something to hide. Steven lived outside of Greengate and wanted to learn exactly [i]what[/i] was being hidden, that's when he met Elijah Callahan. He was rather separate from the otherwise tight-nit community. Something made him different and Steven could feel it.
The two met when Steven, who had managed to sneak past security and the towns perimeter, came across Elijah while he was reading. He inquired upon the subject. Elijah began to explain that it was a story of old. A tale of glorious heroes, charming damsels, and ferocious beasts. They were ten. The book was large and intimidating for their age group, yet Elijah read it casually. Steven began to have Elijah read it to him.
One day Elijah could not read with St

Under a Stolen Sun: Chapter 1, Scene 6
   He scoured the immediate area for any signs of Dianne. Upon getting a hint of her location he threw himself to the ground next to her as if to protect her from any remaining flame or shrapnel. It was a pointless endeavor, as the damage was done. He felt the burns on his hands throb as his palms cushioned the fall. He shrugged off the pain, focusing on Dianne. She wasn't moving. All of the terror in his heart was realized, what would he do without her? How could he survive? Only after the questions were asked in his mind did he understand the true nature of the event. He had caused it.
   "No! Dianne! Please tell me you are alright! Are you awake?" Sweat now covered his face and hands, it seemed to compliment the smoke and ash in a morbid manner. "I did not mean to! I made a grave mistake, that source should not have reacted in that manner!"
   The sound of Master Callahan came clearly from behind him, "Look what you did. You made an error

   A two-sided intentional blow to pride was attempted by her words. He was not a Djinnic seeking freedom like many, nor was he completely subservient.
   "No, ma'am." I replied swiftly, perhaps a bit fool-hardily.
   "Then perhaps the Djinnic of a freshman Artuul can explain the first tier of Praeconius's Magical Formula."
   It wasn't a question, it was a statement. He hated statements. Looking over towards Dianne who was focused towards the front trying to avoid further embarrassment. He was unsure of how to respond as he couldn't be as reckless as he was at Dianne's previous school.
   "Which aspect, ma'am?" he looked up to the front where the instructor was waiting.
   With a surprised and expecting look, she retorted, "The six components and their uses in alchemical and thaumatological applications."
   He looked forward a moment, although it felt like ages, thinking about how

Under a Stolen Sun: Chapter 1, Scenes 1-3
   Mondays, how Tariil hate Mondays, and now Dianne had school... School! He grabbed the clock next to the cot. Six forty-five! He slung his overcoat over his body and dashed up the stairs, nearly taking out another servant.
   "Sorry Gruhnda!" he said, deftly evading the clothes basket she carried.
   He pounded on Dianne's door. "Dianne! School, you will be late! I cannot have you late on the first day!"
   The door opened slowly, almost invitingly, but he knew better. He had been caught not using proper conduct just a few nights ago and was punished accordingly. Dianne looked sleepily through the cracked door. She then nodded, confirming she was awake. Tariil then leaned, back against the door frame and waited. It only took about twenty minutes and she exited her room. Her long black hair brushed out straight and her dress clear of wrinkles.

Helgha sat patiently, waiting for Belsar to finish his rest. She didn't like that he was so careless and it grated on her instincts heavily, “Must you do this now? We are in hostile lands.”

Belsar dove a bit further into the water and swam out a bit, “What are you worried about, Helgha? Some wolves sneaking up on us? Everyone knows wolves don't hunt these areas.” he smiled knowing the words he spoke to be ironic considering the visions Aelred had seen just a few days ago. The news disturbed him, of course, but this wasn't the time yet for morbid moods, “Besides, these are my lands, Helgha. I'm not going to cower in them.”

“We've already been seen, lad, are you going to take the risk that they take action?” she snapped at him with quite a bit of venom.

The Marquis laughed it off, however, as he continued his swim, “Helgha, those cowards know better than to attack us. I'd have killed them by now; Even naked.” he slapped the water, spraying the woman, “Lighten up. If it's that big of a worry, go kill them.”

Rolling her eyes she sat and began to prepare food, “No. They will leave shortly, no need to bother with them.” she didn't even raise her head as the founds of footsteps rushed away from the pond and the sound of bows being released were heard, “It appears you are right as always. How do you do it?”

He took a stern look as he considered his answer, “To know a man is to look at all the options in front of you and choose the rock.” when she looked at him confusedly he burst out laughing, “As my father would say 'I have no damn idea!'” slowly he moved to collect his clothing before dressing and moving back to the camp. A few of the soldiers there made their salutes as he returned the favor. He was never one for formalities, but he would leave them their honor; It was all some folks had and all others sought.

Once inside the tent he saw a rather irate old man, “Where the hell have you been? I have been waiting for nearly two hours.”

“To be truthful, and I should as lying to you is an act of treason, I was avoiding you.” he didn't so much as smile as he moved to take a seat at the planning table. He was less than thrilled that Kythos had proclaimed that the Inquisition would be following them into the territory. It did solve several problems at once, however, and he would deal with it however he needed.

“The nerve- Very well. What are your plans for the assault. I wish to have this handled by nightfall.” he seemed confident in their situation which made Belsar raise his eyebrows.

“If you think I am going to send my men into this before we have scouts report properly then you are mistaken, your grace.” he sat, lied out over the chair lazily. He wasn't willing to send his men into a potential trap, “As you very well know, every loss is a potential enemy later. I will not risk losing this fight simply because you require expediency.”

The inquisitor looked at him with malice in his eyes, “What treachery. This must be handled immediately. You have withheld this information for long enough and now you wish to delay the extermination of this blight?”

Belsar sighed before taking a drink from his special flask, “If you wish to send your men in, then do so. I will send my rangers to assist you. They are quite skilled as I'm sure you've heard. They can make certain the flanks are covered and that none escape to spread this disease.” he took out a blade and fiddled with it.

“Is that all you can offer Dhamria? Pathetic. Here I was told you were courageous, prodigious even. Nothing like your father, I see.” he sneered as he tossed his insult. He saw that it struck a cord within Belsar, something that was rare, “I'm certain you will answer to him when the time comes, however. It's not too late to dedicate yourself entirely, my boy.” the Inquisitor left the tent after he said his part and Belsar slung a dagger at the post where his head would have been next to had he been inside. Sighing and calming himself, the young Marquis stood and moved to call for a meeting with his scouts and officers.

After giving out his orders Aelred looked to him, “Sire, those orders... You are going to lead the Inquisitor's men to their slaughter.”

“I cannot stop the High Inquisitor from sending his men, but I won't take those losses when we know what will happen. It will lose us this fight and you know it as well as I. What must be done will be painful...” he hung his head and placed both hands down on the table to steady his heavy shoulders. Aelred, seeing his pain placed a hand on his head, “My boy, I know the choice you make. You father would have struggled with it, too. He was your friend; Your mentor. It can't be easy. Not to mention all of the innoc-”

“Enough!” the Marquis tossed several cups from the table in a sweep, “I know, I know. Please. Don't remind me...” he reached his hand over to grasp his friend's, “One more time, Aelred? I know it taxes you, but I will do it this time.” as the man nodded both of their eyes glazed over as they seemed to be wracked with pain. Only a moment later Belsar jerked back and fell to the ground tears in his eyes, “No... You said she would be safe! You said they were meant to travel north! Damn it all, Aelred! I was so careful!”

Aelred's own confusion punctuated the conversation. The older man never so much as swayed after the vision, however, “I- There is something wrong, they should have been safe. The vision was quite clear. I am truly sorry, my boy.” he knew not what to say. It had been a long time since Belsar had cried and he didn't like how emotional the Marquis had been lately, “Are you certain you do not wish for Helgha and I to organize this attack?” he immediately held his tongue as he saw the Marquis's expression. He nodded and left the tent.

Drawing out a blade from under his tunic he turned it in his hand, this time it was made of wood, it almost seemed to be a wand. It depicted a pattern of briar wrapping around its length, all the way to the handle, “How could you, Algav? All of this? For what? The war is far from won...”
Belsar's Lament
Just a small post from a role-play I GM. It's been a lot of fun and the NPC Belsar, Marquis of Jarnwickm, has been a patron for the party for some time. While he has a bit of personality, few know of his flaws and motivations. It was fun getting to show that a bit.

New projects and work have me quite busy. That and trying to get my rank up in League of Legends. Currently doing a pretty large world-building RP with some friends to make a setting for later, but need to figure out how to make a website in order to gather our thoughts. Otherwise, doing pretty well, you?

Sounds like fun there. ^^ 
I'm doing well thank you. :) 
Been busy with a number of events here and there, 
which had kept me delayed from making any progress with
my creative works. It kind of bugs me sometimes, considering how
super consistent most artist here online are. I don't know how anyone even manage
the time. I could barely make time to write and draw even on a free day. It just end up
being spent taking care of other priorities. And I haven't started working yet. So I could
imagine how much more backed up I would be when I do start working. How do you guys do it?
That's incredible time management. I'm impressed. :baffled: In my case, I'm either too tired, unmotivated, 
or too easily distracted. Somehow it's always one or the other or some combination there of, but rarely
do I ever manage to write or draw anything. And when I do, it's a miracle, in my case. I practically always have to
fight for it. My situation can be ridiculous sometimes. I wish I could make sense of it all. Only one thing is certain, and that's
there is never a dull moment for me. XD Eh, I'll make it happen somehow. I've gotten this far, so it's best that I keep pushing
forward. When I really do think about it. My situation generally has gotten better over time. It's just that sometimes, it's easy to forget what we already have. but that's all the more reason for me to take a moment and reflect every now and then. :)

You tend to get more work on here than I do. Most of my stuff is motivated by friends and such. My girlfriend finds it annoying that I'm ALWAYS busy and I DO feel bad for her, but if I don't stay busy my depression kicks my rear, so it IS a struggle.

I commissioned the piece from: whiteraven90.deviantart.com/

She did a fantastic job and has fairly affordable prices. She also did the icon you see me using. Not sure if she has commissions open or not. As for references, I pulled from a LOT of sources for inspiration, including the Tau from Warhammer 40k. (I like the segmented plates they use)
