Post The Traveler's Return / IOM Bar and Grill
For what seemed 100 ages he had traveled the far lands of the world, speading the word of ISONIA and telling the oppressed of his home island of Mastabas.

He had held his home up to all as the a land of hope and freedom, but this was before he and his small fleet had landed on the shattered stone warf.
He wept as he looked at the ruble that was once the proud fortress he had built for his lord.

One of his servents asked My lord Dethwatch do we go or do we stay, the servent cowered at the look of rage that flooded Dethwath's face, he screemed GO? NONE MAY GO, WE STAY, WE REBUILD, WE DEFEND NO ONE WILL DEFILE THIS LAND AGAIN.

It was perhaps an hour until another servent asked for orders, Dethwatch looked at the young man saying we build a stone Tavern, rooms on the second floor common room and kitchen below.

For a month they all worked servents, salors, Ships capitans even Dethwatch, at last the building was finished.
Dethwatch ordered 1 weeks rest, he then ordered his 5 most trusted men to find all who still and lived and invite them to this place.

Meanwile Dethwatch would begin to plan and build a new fortress that none could pull down.

After a week Dethwatches servents started to return, but all had the same news the lords were gone and none knew why or were.

As Dethwatch waited his consern grew with each passing day at length he only had 1 servent who as yet had not returned, it was perhaps 2 weeks before the last returned and with him came stunning news.

The servent was helped Dethwatch's presents by a soldier, it was plain that the man had been badly beaten, but he straitened with a smile "my lord I have news, the ones you look for are alive they have turned Pirate".

With a huge smile Dethwatch raced for the warf, once there he ordered his capitans to find his friends saying they were to fly ISONIA's banner as well as his own.
Tell them of my return and of this place and ask them to come.

I'm tired mumbled Batlord, so very tired.


The last week had been hard. I had to rebuild my land, my buildings, my temples and even my forts! The people from WRATH had sorcered my lands so bad that i could only watch it when everything was set at fire.
They had left me nothing...

Maybe there will come a time that i can take revenge..

It has been a long week and Batlord went to the center of the Isle.

At his surprise he noticed a new building AND it was in stone...

Hmmm that might be an idea for my new fortress...

Batlord approaches the new building and reads on the front door

'No weapons allowed inside
Warm and cold meals
Beds and hot water!
Enter at own risk'

This is my home!!

And then he opens the door...

Post Lying on his belly
2 longboats almost danced over the water towards the harbour of dethwatch. These longboats are the latest "toys" for the men of Uhl. Most men ly on there belly not to get seen by dethwatch guards. It was a sort of game like hide and seek. Not thinking about the consequence what happened they could be seen as the enemy.
Why...do they play such a dangerous game. Simply because no one thought they would be seen.
Last war they used this "trick" serveral times. This time is was to surprise an old ally. It was a long time since they seen each other...

Winterhawk enters Dethwatch's tavern , orders twelve shots and starts drinking them as fast as he can.
Dethwatch asks, "Dang, why are you drinking so fast?"

Winterhawk says, "You would be drinking fast if you had what I had."

Dethwatch says, "What do you have?"

Winterhawk says, "75 cents."

Alamar entered the stone tavern, tired and confused. Strange things had been happening lately. The war with WRATH had been suddenly stopped but before that all of his groves were destroyed. Damn those spies, he knew some people couldn't be trusted and yet he went to war with his kingdom unguarded from scum attacks.

Up to now the slow work of rebuilding the groves had been going well and finally they were all rebuilt. However, something else started happening during that time.

Something very strange...

Some of his people said they had heard some giggling noises while they were at work. At first, he thought these were products of their wild imagination, but one day Alamar heard them himself. Was it possible that these were the island spirits?

The mystery still remained unsolved, when one day, he received news that all of the money of the weekly income had been stolen. Alamar howled with outrage and again doubled the posts and provided triple escort for every caravan. He was sick of this business and that's why he sought refuge in Deathwatch's tavern.

When he entered he found it sparsely filled due to the early hour. He went to the bartender and asked for a pint of ale. He drank it fast and asked for another one. After the third pint, Deathwatch eyed him suspiciously:

"Heeya, you schouldn't be drinking so much you scrawny fellow. The next pint will sent you right under the table and I'll have to clean up your mess."

Alamar eyed him with a strong determined face and answered :"Wanna bet!"

"Wow, you challenge me to a drinking contest?"

"Sure I do. Let's see who'll be the first under the table."

People who heard that were already gathering, expecting the outcome of the duel. Alamar and Deathwatch smiled at each other and started emptying th pints.

Dethwatch bows to Bat, saying "it is good to see you agian my lord, many was the time I thourght of you in my travels.
Welcom the foods hot the beer cold and the beds soft make your self at home.

The alarm sounds on the warf, Dethwatch and his men charge for the warf to see 2 longboats heading in, with no banners flying Dethwatch orders his archers to fire when they come in range.
1 of Dethwatch's magi arive and is ordered to burn the rigging of the first boat, the canvas catches and burns quickly.
Dethwatch see's someone stand and wave madly, looking through a spy class Dethwatch see's his old comrad Uhl he mutters something under his breath and turns to his magi and says " please burn that mad mans eyebrows off just his eyebrows mine.
Oh and when he lands bring him to the tavern."


Dethwatch had just returned to the taven when Winterhawk burst in and all but ran to the bar there he downed drink after drink.
Dethwatch bit and was hooked with 1 of the oldest jokes around, he laughed and said " well my freind I'll make your day then, drinks and food are free to all IOM members so go for your life".


After the fist few rounds Dethwatch yelled for a servent to bring him 1 of the small barrels with the flame stamp on it, he smiled at Alamar saying you'll like this lad.
I got this in a little village as far north as you can go coldest place I've ever been the barrel arives and Dethwatch brouches it with a sharp tap, alright lad I must warn you this stuff is a bit strong.
Alamar smiles saying lets get on with it Dethwatch hands him a pint and dips 1 for himself Alamar knocks back his drink in one swollow and says that stuff isn't going to get us drunk, Dethwatch shugs and says Oh yes it will slowly sipping his drink.
Alamar dipped himself another pint but drank it a bit slower commenting on how sweet it was and asking what it was made from, Dethwatch finished his first drink and said "it's made from honey and a fruit thats a bit like an apple", he dipped his second pint still drinking slow.
Alamar knocked back his 3rd dipped his 4th and knocked that back to but he was very glassy eyed he put his mug to his lips and begain to drink, tiping his head back he finished his drink but kept going and by the time he hit the floor Alamar was out cold.
Dethwatch smiled shook his head and said you'll feel this in the morning lad, Dethwatch finished his second pint, looking at Alamar said YOU WIN hehehehehe.

THUD...THUD...THUD...THUD

The punding in his head seemed to contunie forever. It was almost like an army of dwarves was marching in his head, striking with its hammers. He slolwy opened his eyesd, when the light of the morning sun blinded him almost to death.

"Ahh"

Alamar covered his eyes with his hand and tried to get up but he banged his head in the ceiling, which was very low and the blow sent him straight to the bed again.

After ten minutes of contemplating what had hit him, Alamar finally decided to open his eyes to explore the surroundings again. He was in a small room with a low ceiling(apparently), which was neatly arranged and warm. He tried to remember where this could be, but the more he thought, the more his head hurt, so he decided to abandon the complicated brain processes. He got up more carefully this time, but he hadn't made two steps, when his knees faltered and his head swirled and he found himself on the floor.

"WHOAAH"

Again, it took him some time to regain his composure but finally he managed to get himself up and walk to the door in the "sailor" style. He opened the door and was greeted by the morning sun yet one more time.

He looked around. He was obviously in an inn of some sort. He remembered something about drinking bets and a lot of ale. And that stuff, whatever it was. Boy, oh boy, it was strong. He could still feel it inside his head and stomach.

When he saw the man at the counter, he finally remembered. He had had a bet with Deathwatch and the man had obviously tricked him into drinking too much. He secretly smiled to himself. The guy was obsiously no layman in drinking issues -- he had his own tavern, for one. Yet, Alamar believed he could get even with him in a way. For the purpose, he went ouside of the inn to the forest nearby, the plan already forming in his head.

Winterhawk was pleased to be informed he wouldn't be getting another good beating for trying to get his drinks by trickery....

Free drinks for members..........I would have join years and years ago If I had know that.......mind you ...I'm not sure I would want to be a member of something that would let me be a member

I thank ye for the drinks dethwatch.

Batlord had watched all this from a distance. A drinking contest...shakes head...well i never....free drinks...in Deathwatch newly builded tavern...shakes head again...this can never go well

Lord Deathwatch, can i please taste some of the delicious steaks with onions and hot ULLIE sauce? I also want a bed for this week and a long breakfast in my room

In a dark corner sits Lady Hannah, one of the most unknown reputated thief in the lands of the Mastabas. Mysterious as she is she informs me over the last scoutings she did in the last few days.

They both talk in silence and from time to time there is a big smile on both faces.

Winterhawk and Alamar are listening but they never heard the details...

Then suddenly Batlord stands up, gives the lady a hand a says 'Well thank you for your efforts and your money taken from the heathens will be donated to the church.

Then Batlord goes to his chamber

The Assasin sat idly sipping her dark purple wine. She was very well trained but not even her skills were the best; just merely second rate as most would say. Hell she followed Isonia; how could he skills be good? She smiled as Bat the almighty and powerful Batlord quietly shared news of his kngdom and the power it h gained and lost in the war with Wrath. Also she made sure to note the scouting and activities her "Hate Evoker" Stealth organization was running. She rattled off the statistics to Bat who seemed to both be listeningand elsewhere at the same time, "3,567 temples corrupted, 12,543,222 moneys borrowed, 234 Guildhalls destroyed, and hundreds of town watchmen...hanging from the trees....."

She was very beautiful and as diplomatic as she was deadly. She sat eyeing the Great Warrior Bat as if annylzing his weaknesses and strengths in the mere convrsation. Finally Bat arose to leave; she smiled once more; "And where to now M'lord? My fingers grow numb with the lack of movement these past eves. My Body is stiff and I am very weary of having nothing to do."

Matt gets up and casually walks over to the bar. "Shoot!" he says. He stubbed his toe on the way bar. A drink will cure that he thinks. He sits up at the bar and orders some vodka. I'll feel fine in a while he thinks.
He looks around and notices the bar is slightly empty. Were is everyone?

The lady enters the bar with in her left hand a sack full of golden coins.

She hands the sack to Batlord and offers her services once again at the start of the new year.
"Please sir, accept this gift for a new start and i will hand some more tommorow when i scout a second time"

In one of the corners sits a hooded figure.

She walks towards the man and sits down.

Please bartender give this man a drink.

Gem enters the tavern with a smile on her face. She worked hard to do well last age and she will work harder this age. She was much pleased with the results. She walks to the bar and orders a pint of ale. She then makes her way to a table with her drink and sits down to watch what goes on around her.

The front door slams open and Dethwatch enters, blood matting his gray hair and bellows for Alamar.

It seemed that the day after his little drink with Alamar, Dethwatch had been brained and stuffed in a bag to set adrift in a row boat.

After a week of rowing Dethwatch made shore only to find he had to fight his way back to his tavern, needless to say he wasn't in a good mood.

Now he knew he couldn't blame Alamar, for he very much douted the man had recoved enough to even think strait, but he definitely wanted a word with some of the man's retainers.

Not seeing Alamar, Dethwatch walked to the bar and pored himself a very large brandy and looked around the room, he spots a face from his youth.

Dethwatch strode over to greet 1 of his mentors he bows as he arrives at the table Lord Shed you are most welcome in my humble tavern, it has many ages since we stood shoulder to shoulder against the heathens.

You are most welcome indead, smiling Dethwatch heads for his rooms for a very hot bath.

Batlord overwatched the improvements made by Deathwatch in the tavern.
A new hot water tube is in the backyard, a new bar and some new meals on the menue...


And most of all some old friends returning. Shred you have been promoted to warlord. May you bring a lot of prosperity and welfare on our island.

Bartender a round of ale for all the people in the bar!

Gem took a sip of her ale and turned toward the window. She stared absently out at a field. After some time had passed she turned at removed a leather bound book from a bag she carries with her at all times. She opens it and begins to write fruriously, seemingly lost in her own thoughts.

I can smell blood in the air and I fear that soon another war will burden my people. It is however neccessary inorder to please Isonia. It is for only that reason that I dare ask my people to follow me through another war. I can only hope that tommorrow brings less sorrow.

Well what a day it has been.

I walked with a heavy heart back to my lands where I have asked my people once again to follow me into battle in the coming days. At first their was a terrible silence and then there began a slow whisper of Isonia's name. The whisper grew until it was a chant and finally the crowd was roaring for war in Isonias name.

Now we bask in ale and feast now, for in the coming days, we will destroy many a heathen.
