Moon quickly pushed open the front door with a loud thud and an ever louder slam of the door. " good day to everyone... Nice to meet yall! " she said with a wave and a big grin, she did not waste much time standing around as everyone starred at her. She made her way to the sign in sheet writing her name in a mess of a quick pace. Her name read Moon Eldercroft. That last name she really hated so much. " hey " she said as she scanned the people near her, now knowing that no real threat could be found she settled at the table marked 'New Recruits'.

Upon setting down, she set her daggers on the table and took a deep breath. Moon was a bit short on cash so she really needed some kind of well paying job to pay the dept that seem to pile up over night. " Let this get over with fast... I have no time for this gathering" she muttered to herself as she began to get annoyed with it all.

Moon came back to the world when the short man began to talk to her. A short yet somewhat charming little man that he seemed to be. Listening to what she had to say, she gave a little thought before she gave her answer. " well I believe that I was the last one to sign that sheet right over there " the pointed over her shoulder " why do you ask? Also how long is the hole ordeal going to take I need money like yesterday " Moon wondered if he was someone important or something.

So that was everyone then. An elf with no self confidence, a nervous cat who talked funny and an incredibly impatient young lass. Saying they survived the first few weeks they'd fit right in. "Well now that we're all gathered I'm Drake and I'll be showing you around. Over there" Drake pointed at the job board. "where you signed up is where we grab jobs. We used to fill out paperwork but nobody bothers with that anymore. Over there" Drake pointed behind him to what looked like a bar "is where we get alcohol and meet clients. Most importantly we get alcohol. Upstairs is optional quarters, in case you can't pay for your own place. They are incredibly cramped and you will have no privacy whatsoever. Downstairs we have trophy cases and sparring rooms. Any questions?" It was probably obvious Drake was rushing through the process. Normally you'd take the recruits downstairs and test their capabilities before you even thought about taking them on a job. But they all looked capable enough, so what was the harm in skipping a step?

I thought carefully before answering Drake's question. Maybe I was over thinking things but this might be a test of intelligence. A stupid question may make it so you aren't accepted. "Um, I know the jobs each guild gets are different so, what kinds of jobs do you get here?" I asked quietly as I fiddled with the arrow missing a feather. I hope my question was good enough, it was something I was curious about. I placed the arrow back in the quiver and waited patiently for Drake's reply.

Her head was tilted to the side slightly, her gaze flickering between the people at the table as they talked, observing them. The three of them seemed nice. Absently, Willow wondered if they would like to be her friends, but pushed that thought to the back of her mind for now as she heard Feather's question and then turned to Drake for his answer. She tilted her head further to the right, her cheek almost brushing her shoulder as she watches him in curiosity.

" I am sorry for being so impatient but can we hurry this up I have thing that NEEEED! to be delt with soon, so If you do not mind can we get a move on.... " Moon really did not want to be so forward but this was taking to long " question... " she sneared "when can we start are first job?" she tapped her fingers on the table trying to hold back the erge just to get up and leave. Moon knew that if she walked out on this day she might not ever join another guild, for who would take in a shape shifter if not this place. This was the only guild that was willing to take a risk an her and she did not want to have it blow up in her face.

Drake normal calm dropped into a death glare at Moon. "I need you to understand something Miss.." Drake looked across the way trying to read the sign-up. It took him a moment to make out the far off writing but Drake had pretty good eyesight. "Eldercroft. If you do not curb your impatience you will die in the field. This isn't sparring. This is combat." He let that sink in a moment before allowing his cheerful expression to return. Addressing Feather's question was a little harder. "Our guild...pretty much takes whatever we can. We are a diverse people, all capable of doing different things. It's the advantage of allowing anyone to join. It also means that we don't get offered as many jobs. The elven lands are more likely to go to an elven guild if they need something. We don't have the luxury of turning down certain types of jobs. This sometimes even means conflicting jobs. Like one member will be protecting a government official while another member takes a job to assassinate that official. In cases like this our only rule is to never kill another member of the guild." He thought for a moment. His answer didn't really feel satisfactory to him but he wasn't sure how else to put it. "Simple answer. Here in Blackfang we take anything we can get our hands on. I think its time for some action." Drake shifted his crossbow a bit and turned to the one who called herself Whiskers. "Why don't you go up to the board and grab a job that looks like it needs four people."

I nodded as I listened to Drake's answer, it made perfect sense. My kind did tend to be a little prideful and only send jobs to elven guilds. I have do admit, I was a little excited to be able to go on a job and show off my skills as a sniper. I get underestimated because of my looks and my shyness, but I'm as good or even better than any other elf. I waited for Whisker to go pick a job, trying to hide my uncharacteristic eagerness.

Willow gave a quick nod before jumping from her chair and going over to the board, weaving past people on the way. Blinking a few times, she allowed her eyes to wander over the requests that were posted on the board, seeing if she could spot one that would take for people. Upon spotting one, she took it from the board before skipping back over to the table and placing the paper in front of Drake to get his approval. The request was to get rid of a small group of bandits that were harassing travelers. "How's this one?"

Drake looked over the paper. Bandit hunt. Drake didn't like bandit hunts. More times than not there was too much bloodshed. But the job was perfect for a group of four and most people didn't have the same qualms as him. "Great job Whiskers. This will work marvelously." Drake looked at the paper more closely. "We'll be hunting a group of bandits that's been terrorizing a nearby village. We do not have a location for the bandit's base of operation so we'll need to come up with a way to track them down." He looked over the newcomers. Whenever working in a group it was good to have a chain of command. Everyone doing their own thing often leads to uncoordinated attacks. It was also an important learning experience for new recruits to have a chance at leadership. But which one? A smirk appeared on his face as his eyes found the shy Feather. "Feather, you'll be leading the operation. You'll need to figure out how to find the bandits and the best way to launch an attack using the skills of your teammates."

"M-me?" Though I was freaking out, my brain started working. "Well, the best place to gather information would be either a tavern or a marketplace. A marketplace would be better but there's almost always a tavern present. We'll need someone with good social skills to gather the information . Even the general area of the hideout would be useful, because I'm a really good tracker. Do we have anyone who's good at stealth? We'll need to find out as much as we can about the bandits, numbers, weapons, who the leader is, things like that. Then, um, I guess the attack with depend in the bandits themselves." I trailed off at the end, realizing that I had caught the attention of quite a few people in the room. I guess they aren't used to a new recruit knowing so much. I looked down at my lap, refusing to meet anyone's eyes. "I'm uh, considered old in human years. I've traveled around a lot a know this sort of thing"

Moon was happy to see that Feather had gotten the task of leader of there rag tag band of misfits. " I have social skills that could best even a lady of the theives guild would be no match for me..... thoe I dont act like it... but they are." she stood up and grabing her daggers and smiled " and I can not do stalth to save my life " Moon laughed a bit out of embarrassment. " the name is Moon, Moon Eldercorft by the way........" Moons face turns a light red color.

The smirk stayed with Drake. He was pretty sure he'd made the right decision there. Forcing Feather out of her comfort zone would be both benficial to the guild and beneficial to Feather. "I can sneak up on an elven seer in broad daylight, can stick a squirrel at a hundred and fifty yards and once tricked a mage into thinking his powers were just a parlour trick." The mercenary boasted when Feather asked about stealth. "If we can figure out where one of the recent attacks took place you and I might be able to follow the tracks back to their camp." He suggested. Villagers were more likely to know where an attack took place than they were to know the actual location of the camp.

First I smiled and adressed Moon. "Moon Eldercroft, that's a very pretty name." Then I spoke to Drake. "That would work as well, but you are underestimating villiagers. They listen at taverns, bandits will go to a tavern in a town they've attacked, one or two at a time, and they have very loose tongues when they are drunk." I looked up from my lap and directly into Drake's eyes. Some of my old personality was coming out again. The way I was before a string of awful events happened and I was forced back into a shell. "You also underestimate me, because I am simply a new recruit. But you forget that I have been doing this longer than you have been alive. I think I know a thing or two about bandits." Then I went back to being the new me, the me that was weak, that was pathetic, the kind of person that the old me hated.

Willow bit her lip nervously for a moment before smiling at the group. "Whisker isn't very good at stealth, but Whisker is a good listener," she blinked a couple of times before looking towards Feather, "Whisker could listen and see what everyone says if you want." A small smile slipped onto her lips, she decided that she liked these three, she just hoped that she didn't start getting clingy while they were taking out the bandits.

Yori had fallen asleep on that hill way too long and had lost track of time.

He ran over to the room where he knew that the new members were recruiting and knocked on the door before coming in.
He yawned, "Sorry I'm so late. I lost track of time." He said as he rubbed his sleepy eyes.

He may have just ran for a good five minutes, but he didn't seem winded at all.

"Honoo kei kougeki jumon no hitotsu. Jimen kara magma wo fuki ageru ." The chanting can be heard. To an experienced mercenary's ears, those are the sounds of a mage casting a spell. However, a VERY experienced mercenary would instantly realize that the speaker is only practicing, as there had not been any passion or seriousness as the incantation had been said. Asher Evans was reading striaght out of a book of spells that were left behind be his foster father- or at least, foster grandfather- who was a poweful mage. Years of training from a young age had allowed Asher to excell in both physical and magical abilities, and now Asher is at least a decent, if not an amazing, Spellsword.

The lone man walked through the streets of a town that has a name of no meaning to him. In a few days, the silver haired Spellsword would leave town once more, as a vagrant would have. However, there was always a longing in his heart.... a longing to be in a family. Asher never had one, not in his early age, and not when the two people had adopted him. The father and son ewre more like teachers and trainers instead of fathers. Asher sighed as his heart ached once more for the absence of a true family.... Until his head ached from slamming into a sign.

Asher shook his head to get out any dizzyness that messed up his vison. He opened his eyes and read the now clear sign. "Blackfang...." Asher muttered the words of the sign. The word was familiar. Many people had been talking about it, but most of them talked about it badly. However, Asher did hear the word "Guild." From his knowledge, Asher knew what a guild was like. A group of people that take in jobs, working hard to live. The members would support each other, and treat each other like a family. Family. That's what Asher needed the most. His heart jumped for joy as he realized that he was in front of the entrance to the guild.

This was it. He had thought. No more living alone. It's time I go into a setting in which people actually care for me like family, not just a student or an apprentice. Without hesitation, and holding back some tears that nearly flooded his eyes out of happiness, Asher opened the doors to the guild. Air of many scents rushed at him as he opened the door, scents that he knew from his travels, and smells of unfamiliar things, places, or people. It wasn't expected, but you know what they say. Always expect the unexpected. Asher entered the room, careful not to bump into the man who had entered a fwe minutes before him. The Spellsword looked around for something, a sheet of paper maybe, but only found a table marked "New Recruits." Asher got a bit nervous, mainly because of the number of people in the table. Taking a second to catch his breath and to build up some courage, Asher walked to the table, and said, "Hey guys. I'm looking to get into this guild... Do you know where and how I can join?" They seemed to talk about something important, most likely battle plans or spying, as far as Asher could tell. He blushed, because he had probably interupted an important meeting. There goes his confidence.

Moon tried to make a comment to the group but was interupted twice by the two new people wanting to enter the guild " Both of you need to sign the New Recruits request paper over there " her arm quickly moved to pointat the job board " then you can come back and sit with the rest of us ...... ok.. " Moon was getting tired of all the formalities and now with two new recruits this would take a bit longer...... she was not that happy " lets get this over with " she huffed as she droped into her seat.

She was underestimating bandits. The guild wasn't hired to deal with groups of angry farmers who decided a life of crime would be better. The Knights would take care of them for free. The guild was hired to deal with bands of deserters, usually led by someone who was intelligent and knew how to avoid trouble. If the villagers knew the location of the camp then the bandits wanted the villagers to know. However Feather would need to learn on her own that experience didn't mean you should pass of the opinions of your allies. Seeing that further council was unwelcome Drake merely responded with "Carry on then." If things went South he was confident he could recover the operation.
Drake looked up as the new faces approached. Moon handled them fine, if rather rudely. To be fair Drake wasn't too excited about their arrival either. Meant they had more people to split the money with. "Welcome. As Miss Eldercroft said the sign-up sheet is right over there. We are currently briefing for an attack on a group of bandits. You shall be joining us for that."

Yori walked over to the table with silent steps and wrote his name on the piece of paper.
He could tell they were mad he was late, but it wasn't his fault he was always tired.
He sat down and just decided to quietly listen to them, not wanting to piss them off more.
