"Stay Back"

Post by MacLeod on Sun Oct 02, 2016 7:53 pm

McLeod can be seen running from something. His hand is on the hilt of his sheathed sword as if he is trying to defend himself. He stumbles over his own feet and falls to the ground. He begins back pedaling as he gets back up.

"No.... Stay back.... Stay Back!!!!"

Aubrey de Vere, walking by, looks around confusedly. He looks to the man walking behind him, armed and armored. The Ghoul moves immediately to MacLeod's side, one hand extended in aid, the other on his sword.

"MacLeod! What ails you, childe?" Lord De Vere looks genuinely concerned. "What danger?"

Both Aubrey and the Ghoul look around carefully for sign of a threat. ((The Ghoul has the Danger Sense Merit.))

"The Legion.... So many.... I...."

McLeod is obviously very shaken. He has stopped running but now seems to be looking around every corner as he continues on his path, his hand still on his sword ready to draw. Almost looking like he will strike anything that surprises him.

Aubrey and his guardsmen fall into step with MacLeod. The Ventrue seems to have had his curiosity piqued, but his annoyance starts to show after only a few moments of MacLeod walking off. After a bit, he stops, holding up a hand.

"Wait, friend. Stop. Breathe. Explain your circumstances."

The guardsmen, twenty of them who have fallen into step to protect the small group as they walk, close ranks to keep anyone from overhearing the discussion, or walking away.

"They march.... The legion.... Wraiths.... I could hear them... I went to investigate...."

As the gaurdsmen close in McLeod's hand on his sword is shaking. The look in his eyes is of pure terror.

Aubrey turns to face the Brujah, smiling disarmingly.

"Where did you go to investigate? What did you see there? Where did the legion march? Be descriptive, friend."

"(Location not to far from here and what direction they were heading in broken shakey voice.).... You wont see them.... II could hear them... They spoke to me.... Told me to stand down.... I tried to reason.... then they did something to me."

He looks down at his hand not on his sword. It is shaking like a leaf.

Aubrey looks concerned.

"Come with me, Sir Knight. We will deal with this, I promise you." ((OOC:Sorry to interrupt with chops, but at this point I'm going to be Charming enough to Entrance you with Presence. Chops are below, please respond with a trait and RPS. I really don't want you to say no.))

Aubrey gestures back toward another street, intending to lead Macleod in another direction.

Ok have no idea how to do that but the second you mentioned chops paper came to my mind so you win.)

"Aye .... this is beyond what I can handle for now."

His hand slowly lets go of his sword and follows.

((I'll take it. The purpose was just to largely calm MacLeod down anyway.))

The group makes it way on foot through the streets of York to a large stables on the outskirts of the city. All the while, Aubrey discusses only idle chatter with MacLeod. He makes no mention of the Wraiths or any such matters. He talks of his business in the city, collecting payments on several large loans. Anything to change the subject.

The building at which they arrive is a small inn with a large stables on the outskirts of town. A small sign outside bears the arms of a minor Knight vassal to the Baron of York Castle. Aubrey holds up a hand for the majority of the retinue to wait. He and his Ghoul bodyguard enter the Inn alone, and after a brief exchange a few drunken patrons are ejected.

When the small common room is emptied, the Bodyguard steps back out the front door long enough to bark orders at a guardsman to saddle the horses, before beckoning a few guardsmen to escort their guest inside.

Within the inn is a small but well-appointed bar, some stools, and a few small tables. There is a staircase behind the bar leading upstairs to several private rooms, and a door leading into the stables at the rear. Though care is clearly put into covering the smells of the Stables, which are larger than the entire inn, the odor of horse is still noticeable.

Aubrey is just sitting down at a small table in the middle of the room, as a small simply-dressed serf pours three glasses of wine on the table before him. "Sit. Drink if you will. May I offer you any other refreshment?"

McLeod still looks very shaken up but no longer seeming as paranoid as he was.

"Thank you though I think i just need to reprocess what happened. I've never experienced anything remotely like that."

"I understand. I have very little experience with these matters myself. I have... invited... an expert to join us. In the meantime, now that you are a bit more in control might you explain better what happened to you?"

"Aye. I was out and about looking for inspiration for my craft. suddenly I could hear the sound of marching. as if a hundred men or more were moving in rank. Seeing that nobody else was reacting I summed up that it must have been my ability to hear and speak with spirits. my first reaction was to investigate. I found a way to speak with what I assume was it's leader. during our conversation i was threatened and as they continued on their direction... It was if... my body was emptied of all emotion and then filled with pure fear. Not even the abilities of some of my brethren have effected me that much. Thinking about it now even gives me a bit of a chill."

Aubrey nods slowly.

"I see. That is certainly an interesting event. Our guest will be here soon, I hope, and I'll have to ask that you explain the circumstances again when he arrives. In the meantime, what direction were they marching? Was any indication given of where their eventual destination was?"

"They were moving in the direction of a cathedral. And overhearing some of the general talk within I believe I heard them say something about Lord John's fetter and not being able to be stopped."

Aubrey nods. "Perhaps Mors will be able to shed some additional light on the matter. What cathedral?"

Aubrey nods. "I see." He waves a hand at his Ghoul. "Thomas, see to it that the Cathedral in question is observed from afar for signs of unusual events."

As the Ghoul runs off to do his master's bidding, Aubrey turns back to Macleod with a shrug. "I suppose that now we wait."

::A few minutes later sounds of the guardsmen whimpering can be heard outside, followed by a heavy set of footsteps approaching inn door and Mors lets himself inside::

"Lord De'Vere, I had a thought I could find you here, I needed to speak to you on..."

::Mors notices the Macleod and glances towards an empty space near him as well::

"That can wait, is something the matter?"

The Ghoul bodyguard enters again with Mors. Aubrey stands to greet him, but turns first to his Ghoul. "Thomas, kindly go round up the men. Undoubtedly the guards have run off again."

Turning back to Mors, he smiles. "Welcome, my friend. Yes, there is a matter that requires your attention, but first tradition must be maintained. May I offer you wine? Food? Other refreshment?"

"No, but thank you for offer of hospitality."

::To Macleod::

"Your presence is not a hindrance, merely a sign of more important tasks at hand. What is the situation?"

Aubrey clears his throat.

"Macleod here has spoken at length of a legion of ghostly warriors who are, even now, descending upon York Minster. Apparently they seek something of Baron John's. Something called a fetter. I am unsure what exactly that is, but the Baron was a great fan of the northwest belltower. If they seek something of his, it is likely there. Apparently they feel that finding this item will make them unstoppable. During his observations, the ghosts did something to my new friend here, but we have been unable to determine what."

Turning to Macleod, Aubrey adds "Have I forgotten anything?"
