Why did you force your sister to wear a mask when you aren't wearing one? LOL

Damn! I thought I'd got away with that one....
Hang on... you notice THAT but not my cute Rudolph T-Shirt???




Queen of The Squirrels aye, well you must be a squirrel then mate? Now did you have Merlin enchant this lovely maiden who has the sense to retrieve to a magical place? Does she know who you are?
What a grand family Gordi, thank you for sharing


You are most welcome. I believe that she was indeed enchanted... almost 30 years ago!
But not by wizardry or magic.... although.... it may have been my big bushy... tail??


(The squirrel thing refers to what she does for a living by the way... she runs a "forest school" teaching kids about making safe campfires, dens, outdoor cooking, crafts and wildlife in the forest among the squirrels! And I HAVE to test out all of the hammocks! Obviously!!!)

I know why...
you sensed the scent of the next part of my tale...



As we walked into the main gates Eleanora looked at me, seeming a little concerned, probably worried that I wouldn't
know what to do in such a huge city,
"Hey Livi, while you go to the Cathedral I'm going to split off and go take care of some business of my own, I'll
meet up with you this evening at The Gilded Rose, I know Allison the Innkeeper personally and she'll give us
a good discount. Just tell her you're with me."

"Ok, that sounds fine, don't worry about me I can handle myself. I'll see you tonight than, goodbye El."
I told her as we went our separate ways.





Finding the Cathedral seemed simple enough, I could see it's spire from miles away. Getting there through
the hustle and bustle of such a huge city was the challenge. I hadn't been there in such a long time and there's
so much I wanted to see and do, getting distracted would be easy. The fact I had no money would help keep me on
track, because everything here costs something.

I remember how excited I was walking down the streets towards the great Cathedral, anticipating what was awaiting me
there.



As I passed by the florist shop Fragrant Flowers, I just had to stop in, the scent emanating from the displays out front
were too enticing to resist.

"Good afternoon ma'am, welcome, I am Bernard Gump, and this is my wife Felicia, how can we help you today?"
"I am just looking sir, I haven't any coin so sadly cannot afford your bouquets, but they are beautiful..." I muttered
reluctantly. "I wish I could get something for my best friend however".

Mrs Gump reached down and picked up a single black rose, and said "Do you think she'd like this? You may have it
at no charge".

"Are you sure?" I responded in surprise, "Yes, this city is for more than the wealthy my dear" she said with a pleasant
smile. "Thank you Mrs Gump! I know El will absolutely love this!" I said as I took the gorgeous rose.

"I'm going to the Cathedral today to recieve my first Quest! I'm so anxious." I stated without realizing.
"What is your name child?" Bernard asked inquisitively.
"I am Livias Lightbringer", and to this I saw a distinct look of shock and surprise upon both of the Gump's faces.
"We are honored by your presence Lightbringer, and will always be in your service if you call upon us" Felicia quickly retorted.

"Your grandfather came here often years ago" Bernard said, looking a bit despondent.
"He will be missed".

"Are you following his footsteps as a Paladin Miss Lightbringer?" Felicia asked.
"Well, I don't know where he stepped exactly. They don't tell me much about him, I just know he is well liked by
everyone." I replied. "He left me his codex, the Libram of the Lightbringer. It's amazing! There are so many prayers
in it, and nothing makes me happier than to carry it".
"Now that is a true honor Lightbringer, we have great Faith in you!" Bernard exclaimed.
"Might we ask for a Blessing dear Paladin?" Felicia asked, her eyes darting to the rose she gave me for a split second.

"Yes, one moment let me find one for you" I said, opening the book flipping through.
"Here we are, the Blessing of Wisdom! Undoubtedly you'll do well with this one."
And with a short prayer, the room filled with small glitters and sparkles and Light surrounded the Gumps and I could
see the Blessing had lifted their Spirits a little bit.
"You give us much Hope young Lightbringer, our confidence is in you, go now and receive your Quest" Felicia said, waving goodbye as I walked back out into the great city, and continued on my way.

I remember when I finally reached the great Cathedral feeling a sensation of incredible awe at it's size and stature,
it was imposing and magnificent. Entering it's huge doors and seeing what was within was equally astounding.

The place was very busy, there were people everywhere.
I wasn't even sure where to go or who I was looking for...

"Afternoon child, may I help you?" and older man asked me.
"Um... I'm not sure. I'm Livias Lightbringer and I'm here to see someone from the Silver Hand to receive a quest?"
"Lightbringer, we have been waiting for your arrival. Tiresias Sundragon will speak to you immediately. Right this way please."

So I followed him through several corridors, marveling at the stained glass windows and the architecture, trying to keep
up. Then I saw him walking towards me dragging his massive mace, and was a bit terrified to be honest!




"Tiresias, she is here." the doorman said to the impressive Paladin. He was wearing some strange armor, but I liked it.
It seemed to have an aura of Judgment about it that would strike fear into the empty hearts of evil, and it must have been imbued with powerful enchantments.

"Livias Lightbringer!" his voice boomed.
"That is me Paladin," I said with a bow, "Why have you called upon my service?"

"As you know by now, our world is under siege by a pestilence. This is no typical plague, this is something much
more sinister, it reeks of dark magic. It is a Scourge of Undeath. We need everyone to help repel it, and hopefully
defeat it."

"But how do we defeat an army that is bolstered by our fallen comrades Paladin? I am afraid and confused." I said,
my voice trembling, realizing I was truly still just a mere child.

"That is why I have called upon you Livias, you represent a Legacy, your family has done many great deeds for mankind
and I, among others, was gifted by the Light with a vision of your Destiny. You were entrusted with your grandfather's
Libram for a reason - you will use it on your Quest to discover who is behind this pestilence and we are entrusting you
and a select group of individuals who shall accompany you - to put an end to it."

I was literally blown away by this, and fell upon my knees again, knowing I had no choice but to fulfill the Duty entrusted to
me by my peoples. "Yes my lord, I will do as I am asked by Stormwind."

"Excellent" he continued, "First I want you to speak with Katherine the Pure, she will teach you a few things that you need to know. I realize that more time is desired but we are in haste and I know that you are an exceptionally fast learner."

"Secondly we shall equip you with a set of armor and a good weapon, and then I will have you meet a few others that have
been called to your side. You must Trust in them with your life and protect them with yours. You will be a team and together you will investigate this pestilence and bring the evildoers behind it to Justice," he said.

"But be warned, I fear there is a demonic presence at play and I am only sending you because I believe you show the most promise and because you are Pure of Heart. You shall lead them to Victory".

I was in tears, why me I wanted to ask. But I knew that everyone has a Duty to uphold and so I was ready to face mine without complaint.
"I will investigate and then quell this Scourge lord Tiresias, I will not fail Stormwind. I admit I am afraid but I will do as I must."

He looked at me and said "You have Courage as fierce as your grandfather, we are in good hands".

I wasn't exactly sure what to do. At that moment he raised his hands and Light surrounded us, and he prayed a Blessing upon me, the Blessing of Kings. I had never actually heard it recited before, but now I knew it by Heart. It was eloquent and simple, and I felt power coursing through my entire body.



"Now Livias, child, go speak to Katherine the Pure, she has a lesson for you and someone to introduce you to. Then speak to
Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker to recieve your equipment. When you are ready to leave, go to Stormwind keep and speak to the King, he will issue your next orders. May the Light be with you, for Stormwind!"

And with that I dried the tears from my eyes thanked him, and went to find Katherine.

Nice one! Love the latest entries in Your Tale Flash! Keep em coming!

Evil.

In the story In what is being corraberated by Me and some others, the evil came from a rip in the sky. Opened by a couple of The Sarn. 15 foot tall four armed/handed Behemoths. A warring race in general from a planet in the Orion star system...

The evil came in the form of a Mist. Some Wizards here cast a spell on it that turned the mist into more of a solid form. Easier to battle that way!

Thought I'd let You know that in case You wanted to join the fight!

The older gentleman that brought me to Tiresias then lead me back through the corridors to a room with an altar adorned
with many symbols and covered in gold, and behind it stood who could only be Katherine the Pure.




She stared at me, inspecting me for awhile, and then spoke.
"Livias Lightbringer, grandchild of Uther, I have much to teach you. How much of that Libram have you studied so far?"
she asked me.

"Not much yet, I regret." I replied.

"That is fine, I will show you a few pages that might interest you. They will come in very handy on the road ahead
as you face your trials and tribulations, as there will be many trying moments."

"Turn to the chapter on Auras, there are several prayers listed there."

She took her hand and pointed to one after I found the correct page, "There, these have different effects and if
you look at the subtext it explains what it does. Try one now."

I spoke the prayer of Devotion, and a very subtle blue hue surrounded me, I felt funny.

"With an Aura like this, everyone around you will harden their will with a shield that will deflect some attacks" Katherine
said, "the others can increase your parties abilities in different ways, one allows you to Concentrate better, one grants you
Swiftness, and so on".

"The chapter after this one teaches you how to call upon the Divine for an impenetrable shield of protection, but it only
lasts a few seconds and you must not overuse it, only use this in moderation I must stress. Also you may lay your hand upon another with this prayer and it will grant them protection inside of a bubble for a few seconds, use it sparingly, I warn you overuse can be very detrimental."

She continued teaching "in the first chapter there are many prayers for healing listed, you must learn each of them. Some are difficult so study diligently when you have time,".

I had already learned a few of the simpler prayers in this chapter so I responded with a question I had been wondering about "I am halfway into this chapter and I am confused about the Word of Glory, how do I make use of it?"

She looked at me and responded "as you pray throughout a battle, you gain more Holy power, after you have filled your Heart with the Light's Glory you speak this word upon either yourself or a friend and it will cover them in that Light and increase their resolve to fight onward by regenerating wounds, like other healing prayers but this one can become exceptionally powerful."

"Near the end of this chapter it will teach you how to Lay Hands upon an injured brother or sister and it will heal them completely as well as grant you increased Spirit to pray on. It is exceptionally potent and so I warn you also not to overuse this one like you might continually repeat the simple prayers."

I had more questions, "What is the Guardian? How does it work? And what does Redemption do?"

She smiled and said "Dear Livias, your Guardian is an Angel that will come to protect you and aid you in prayer, when you need her and call, she will arrive in the Light."

"And Redemption is a very long prayer but it will revive a fallen comrade from death and grant them a reprieve, but it must be spoken over their corpse within an hour of their demise."

I was struck in complete awe, my jaw must have been hanging wide open. Guardian Angels? Raising the dead? How is this even possible? No wonder Grandfather was so popular! Even the great Mages couldn't achieve this! This Libram is very powerful indeed!

"One last thing Livias, learn the prayer to Shock others with the Light, it is short and simple to repeat and you can also use it against the undead or demons to burn them in Holy flame. It is almost as powerful as the prayer to Exorcise evil. Please study your Libram diligently and master it's entries."

I couldn't believe that I had been ignoring this book for so long, it was full of so many amazing things, I felt foolish for
letting it sit and collect dust as I played outside those long summer days.

"Now dear, I want to introduce you to someone very special who will accompany you on your Quest. Livias, this is
Angela Wheatleigh, she is a Priestess and will Discipline your party and your foes."

I turned to look and saw her, she was radiating Light and she wore an impressive garment that indicated she was very
advanced in her training. I knew she had much to teach me just by looking at the glow in her eyes.




"Hi Angela" I said, almost giggling. "Lightbringer, it's time to remove those rags and gear up, come with me" Angela said.
She led me to another room across the hallway to see Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker.

"Hello Paladin, I see you need some equipment for your upcoming journey. It will be perilous and it is of great import, so the order has decided to give you a very valuable and powerful set of armor and a great mace to match it."

He pointed to a stand with armor pieces laying about, and walked out of the room so that I may undress and slip on
the order's clothing and this new armor atop it.

After a few minutes I was dressed to impress. I had never looked so good, so ready to lead a party into battle in my entire life!!
