    "Fiery is she not?"
    "Meerrgh." replies Granderog.
    I laugh a little. I suppose you only understood half of that?
    I look back at Vash as she walks away and let out another furry smile.
    "I lion cannot become a deer no matter how much it may want. The deer will always run and the other lions will see it as a fool."
    I hop back into Granderogs' hood and get under the small blanket.
    "Sleepy time Granderog."

    OOC::
    Bloodfort-Belaphont Highway, Cadkis Province
    Night passes and morning passes. The party spends some time progressing along the highway. Soon, they can see the road disappear into a hill in the distance, a hill dotted with dark structures. More pressing, however, is that just up ahead, a villager (assumedly) couple appears to be breaking camp besides the Twin Bees Road (the Highway). The party will be upon them in minutes, and they both glance over to your group often (you are walking with two Belaphonts).

    "Granderog hungry." says the giant walking next to the cart. He has an extremely irritated face this time however.

    The day before Granderog had to skip dinner because of the attack and breakfast because all the food was stolen.

    The giants stomach growls and he puts his hand over it looking down.
    "Merrrgh"
    He looks at one of the Belaphonts and sniffs it a bit before letting out a loud grunt and smashing its back leg. The legs lets out a sickening crack as the bones snap and then an unpleasant ripping noise as Granderog wastes no time tearing the leg off and biting into it like a chicken leg.

    Arthas immediately stops in sudden shock. D:

    "What the f*** are you doing?!?" Arthas was happy that the belaphont couldn't really feel the pain, but he still felt bad as it now struggled to keep up with the group.

    "Granderog eat." Was the only reply as he continued to walk and eat the leg like it was a hot pocket.

    I won't forget this... Arthas thought to himself...

    OOC: What the f*** Ethan?!?! XD

    Vash set her hand gently on Arthas' shoulder. "Don't worry for them, they are the dead and you will find their presence much less comforting than the living." Vash smiled, "After all you can't have a good conversation with a creature that can only fight. Look at Ganderog for example." Vash pivetted on her heel and began jogging lightly towards the couple ahead of them. "You guys stay here, I'm going to go talk with the people ahead of us."

    As Grand rips Himself off part of my fluffy bed to eat, the Behemoth falters a bit to the side and drops my now woken corpse on the dusty ground.

    The hell is going on?..

    I notice our company and dart behind the wobbly behemoth and quickly form back into a human.

    Bloodfort-Belaphont Highway, Cadkis Province
    Vash trots over to the couple, a man and a woman. They own a small cart, and, judging by their clothing, they appear to push around more wealth than your average citizen. They do appear as citizens, however. Other than these possesions, it seems they have nothing else.

    They stop what they're doing, and walk out to meet Vash. As far as can be told, they carry no weaponry between the two of them. As they reach conversation distance, the man speaks up. "How are you doing? My name is Maximillian."
    "And I'm Vier." The woman introduced herself.

    "I'd offer my wares, but we were recently just stolen from," Max continued on. He then noticed the contents of the party's wagon as the others drew closer. "I see that you were too."

    "It would mean the world to us if you'd allow us to travel with you towards Belaphont," Vier was straight to the point. "You're military right? You can keep the bandits away." By now, the party had caught up to their leader.

    "My name is Vashantier of the monastic Elderborne" Vash shook hands with them and bowed slightly."I see no quarter not to let you travel with us my good folks. However i must tell you that our group is rather odd. If you do not mind walking with the undead or the mentally challenged giant, then we can offer protection." Vash waved back to her group happily. "You wouldn't happen to have a lute on you by chance would you or perhaps a harp?"

    OOC: Of coarse they don't Vash! What do you think being lute ed is anyway?

    IC: I bow with a half-assed smile.

    Granderog stands there happily chomping on his food not noticing that Arthas has been giving him dirty looks the entire time.

    Bloodfort-Belaphont Highway, Cadkis Province
    Vier's body lost its tense posture, and Maximillian gave a weak yet friendly smile. Vash, skilled with people, couldn't but help notice a nervous element to the two. "I'm not one to question you nonhumans," replied Maximiliian. "So long as you don't want to eat me."

    Vier stepped forward. "As for the instrument, Maxy is a skilled craftsman. Perhaps later, he can make you one?" the statement came out as a question, and Vier's eyes went to her partner of the road.
    "Perhaps," was his answer. "Well, let's be off! Er, if you and your group are ready, Vashantier of the Elderborne."

    Vier was already gathering her things and stepping in line with Arthas. Sorith noticed that food was not amongst her things, or Maximillian’s, for that matter.

    Oh good, more people to travel with. They seem nice..

    "He-Hello." Arthas greeted Vier, with a nervous tinge in his voice.

    "Hello." Vier replied. ... Awkward moments passed as everyone got into formation in preparation to head out.

    Well, I guess it's not her fault she doesn't want to talk to me. I never was good with the ladies...

    Belaphont, Cadkis Province
    The party came upon Belaphont's crop fields, heavily irrigated parcels of bailey and wheat. Thatch and tree homesteads were spaced far from another, as if each were its own fortress, safeguarding their lands. Every house featured its own set of additions and repairs, signatures of adaptation. The village itself rested on a smooth, rising slope which bended and became hilltop in the directionality of the Cadkis-Safron-Ravil border.

    It was on the hilltop that all the action occurred. Here the space between homes narrowed and all the buildings required to support large populations began to appear. Storage houses, common areas, armories, watch towers: all recently constructed and composed chiefly of thick wood. That same wood was stood on its end around the hilltop, forming a low yet practical wall. Belaphont had received obvious military investment since the invasion of Cadkis.

    Walking besides Vash, Max smirked at the sight of those wooden palisades. “You’d think, with all these soldiers, Belaphont wouldn’t have to deal with thieves, but no; all they’re good for is eating and buying.” Max briefly recalled the image of Granderog eating thigh meat. “No offense, of course,” he quickly added.

    Behind him, Vier found that her curiosity had grown too great, that her eyes had flickered to silent Arthas one too many times. “What, are you?” she asked. “Were you, human? Are you human?”

    The children of Belaphont, unlike her, were completely unabashed. Nonhumans were not such a rare occurrence in their lives, here at the border. They ran to the group, many of them gathering about Granderog. They shouted out at him, inviting him to their games: “Throw me!” “You’re it!” “I bet I’m stronger than you!” Silis chuckled as kids yelled to him atop the cart. “Sorith,” he called out. “You should give them something to really be excited about.”

    Granderog got a little confused as the kids ran up to him without fear.
    "Now Carful, these children are just as fragile as I am." I say smiling at their innocents.
    Granderog picks up one boy by the collar of his shirt and examines him. The boy laughs unafraid of the giant as he spins there slightly in the air. One could almost see the question mark above Granderog's head.
    "Gently now."
    Granderog slowly lowers the boy back to the ground.

    Arthas quickly glanced at Vier, then after seeing her still looking at him, he looked away. His head lowered down as he replied, "Honestly, I don't know what I am now... But I can assure you, I used to be normal... I still even feel normal at times, but clearly it isn't the case. The reactions I get from other people... hmm.."

    Arthas lost his train of thought as his voice drifted off. His chest clenched as memories creeped into his head, from before the accident. "I used to be normal." Arthas said quietly.

    "Alright then. I'm sorry I asked, I was just curious." Vier replied, seeing that the question had hurt Arthas. "It's okay, I need to get over it eventually." Arthas said as he looked back at Vier. "No harm done." A slight smile came over Arthas's face.

    "What's the plan from here, Vash?" Arthas shouted up towards the front so the officer could hear him.

    "We take whats left of the goods to the army and then we find a tavern or inn to stay at if we can't bunk at the barracks. Then we can relax and explore the town, do whatever it is you might want to do." Vash began to wonder ahead and look through the crowd sniffing for some form of vampiric blood, but she couldn't find any. She strode through the streets with Silis at her side heading toward the Barracks at the central area of town.

    Belaphont, Cadkis Province
    Maximillian reviewed his escort nervously. He had yet to get over the fact he had traveled with two undead belaphonts and a giant that ate their festering legs for breakfast. Vier had a different attitude, her hand rubbing her chin ponderously. “Hey, Max. You could use a few strong arms couldn’t you?” Vier had an eye for business.

    “Yes, yes I could.” As each word came out they progressively got louder. “You three looking for paying jobs by any chance? Real money? I know the military only pays in benefits.”

    Military Barracks, Belaphont
    The barracks, like the wall protecting Belaphont, was made entirely of a dark wood. The inside was filled with numerous bunks, storage chests, and equipment racks. Whoever had constructed the place did so without a floor plan, for there was no order to the positioning of any of the bunks. Yet amidst it all one feature demanded attention.

    Somewhat near the center stood a thundercat, a humanoid being with a lithe bone structure and skin covered in brown and black striped fur. “Really? Nobody? Man this guy is getting’ tah me!” he whined.
    One of the nearby soldiers laughed. “I think he likes you Warmaster Leo, he left your favorite food.”

    Another soldier spoke up, “Leo’s already got a woman! This guy’s intrudin’.” This spawned more laughter from the room.
    Leo made a nasty face. “Yeah, it IS like he likes me.” The face disappeared, replaced with one of mirth. “Well, I’d like nothin’ more than to go datin’! Men! Leave notes for the master thief! Warmaster Leo would love a little one-on-one.” With that final joke and a smile, Warmaster Leo headed for the door.

    When his eyes caught Vash and Silis, however, he stopped. He regarded them, hands on his hips. “Well you ain’t one of mine, how can I help ya?” he asked.

    OOC: It didn't tell me a new post was here.

    Vash salutes the man in a relaxed manner. "Sir we bring supplies from the bloodfort to restock your inventories." Vash said, "Unfortunately we ran into some problems with belaphonts and some sort of imps. During the fray about half the material had gone missing and there were no tracks to follow." Vash stood there for a second, "If there's anything you need sir we'll be most likely at the tavern, inn, or blacksmith."
