Witch's Garden

Witch's Garden

0 INK

With their kingdom in turmoil, can a small group of peasant heroes save their land from a deadly evil poised to destroy everything they've ever known?

1,955 readers have visited Witch's Garden since Lurelle created it.

Introduction

The Witch's Garden ...

There's a kingdom, obscured by trees and mountains, where they said magic things happen. That much is true. Now, they say the land is overrun with darkness and death and evil. This medieval fantasy world is inhabited by humans as the single race. All the fantasy creatures are there, though (unicorns, faeries, dragons, Ect). The Evil comes in the form of death and decay. Crops are dying, water turned foul, animals disappearing to escape the plague. Human life is at great risk. The cause: a witch in faraway lands, high in her tower. Allandria is intent on destroying the lands in order to create a sustainable dragon roost. In other words, the death of all living things within the lands. With these dragons, she will overtake the rest of the world. The witch is exceedingly powerful. The tower in which she resides is protected by a single shadowy dragon, whom is named Sethekk.
   The Kingdom of Light is a trading center, and well known for it's hospitality. But now the gates are closing permanently. The king is desperate, and will do anything it takes to keep the city from falling into the plague's grasp. No knight or adventurer dares leave now. Hope is lost; who will save these people?
Some 'unlikely heroes' meet each other by chance, and find out that they share similar views. They want to kill the witch and destroy her base of magic, to end the threat of plague and death. But it's not as easy as that. They're poor, yet have certain skills that, together, make them a team.* Also, the creatures that roam the forests and land from the city to the tower are corrupt and bloodthirsty. Trees seek human blood. Glowing moss will devour you whole. Pretty flowers release a deadly puff of poison into your bloodstream. The group must escape the city, and find their way safely through the now deadly land, also voiding the plague.  Will they be able to make it to the tower and end the witch, against all odds?

Alphonse hated this situation. Elenie was letting emotions get the better of her, which wouldn't end well if it came to blows. Their leader, Alyss, had upset the mage to an extent where he had bound her. Alphonse had to act now. He swallowed a dosage of a suggestion drug. He approached the space between Elenie and Safir and, without showing his intentions, whispered in mangled Elven to Elenie, "Just play along." Without stopping, he chuckled. "You will have to forgive the Elf, milord, but it is has been poorly misinformed." He turned to Elenie, "It seems you haven't seen through the lie yet. It seemed that the drug worked swimmingly. Well, no point in hiding it. I lied about the witch killing your tribe." Pulling actual fact from his family history, he began to spin his tale.

"You see, you poor poor elf, my Family has been at odds with your kind for generations. In order to build on some of the more fertile land, my family had to expel some of you out. Now, knowing the threat of your kind's potent arrows, my family enlisted corrupted druids to attack." He walked to a corner of the room, his eyes still focus on Elenie. "When we met, I was trolling around for anyone who would join me in answering the bounty on the Witch. When I saw the Elven archer, she had told me that her village was attacked and she was seeking the perpetrators. I only had to hint of the rumors of a supposedly malignant witch of the woods to insinuate her clan's attackers." Thanks to the suggestion drug, he had believed every word he had said, just in case the mage would try to discern the truth from his mind.

#, as written by Lurelle
Safir turned his eyes on the alchemist as he stepped forward to speak. The elf had lost her temper and it was apparent she was refraining. And her friend, this man, was telling her the truth..? Safir could not tell. He ignored it. The elf would not be allowed to lash out after this information again.

But he had also noticed that the alchemist had just injested something. He didn't like that.
"Hold your tongue, elf. Insulting the Queen will do you no good, especially here." He spoke with a dark tone, not openly revealing his irritation. Safir then addressed the rest of the party. "I'm not getting answers out of any of you.." he shook his head in mock disappointment and felt his anger slip away quietly. "Perhaps I won't, but the Queen can. She's requested that she speak with all of you. I shall not keep her waiting."

Of course not with them grasping their weapons, so they could kill him and be done with it. Keeping the weight off of his leg, he casted a complex spell that dealt with the mind - the desired affect was their "guests" following him passively. The spell should make their mind desire to follow him without harming themselves or him. The mage took a step back to see what would happen.

---

Alyss looked in shock at Alphonse. Was he..really? It made sense if he was, and even more so if he wasn't. But then it wasn't her business to interfere with another's family. She rubbed her neck, growing angry. Tension was high, and if she and her friends didn't comply then.. the mage could kill them all. And she was the only weaponless one.
"I didn't agree to see your Queen, I-" .. she stopped and thought. She'd better. Or they would all get hurt. It just made sense to go.. it was safer anyways.. they could run.. no. Running would only make him mad. They should just follow.. she took a step toward Safir, her eyes round.

Elenie felt anger bottle up inside her as Alphonse told unbelievable lies. If that was the truth she would punch Alphonse straight in the nose. Not caring about anyone else around her. After the idiot stopped talking she shot her head to focus on Safir. We had to speak to the queen? Elenie felt like going with Safir. Joining him and talking to the Queen. She had no clue why. She wanted to truthfully run away and not even see the queen. Yet she really wanted to at the same time. Her eyes widened as Alyss joined Safir. Alyss was the last person Elenie would think to go up to Safir. Soon after she took her first step towards Safir and others followed until she was by Safir and Alyss ready to see the Queen.

Alphonse could tell how angry Elenie was. It was understandable; he had tried to completely butcher her reputation and her reasons for revenge. Although after the mage was done speaking, he noticed that Elenie grew two heads, and that the walls were suddenly made of gelatin. Every step Alyss was taking, non-descript flowers seemed to start springing up. His stethoscope had developed speech and started singing shanties. The mage was suddenly a banana with a rainbow colored peel. Alphonse's eyes dilated, and he felt the strangest urge to giggle. Feeling very hungry, he followed the suddenly banana-like mage through what appeared to be a the gaping maw of a turtle. Strange... This didn't happen during testing. Alphonse was only highly suggestive when he consumed the suggestion drug during testing. The only time he saw strange things under the influence of his suggestion drug was under magical hypnosis. Of course! There's something magical affecting my mind. Oh well. Lead on Mr.Banana! He tried to say. However, all that came out of his mouth was gibberish. He stumbled forward, tripped, and said semi-coherently,"Holy Cow, Mr. Banana! " He began giggling uncontrollably, and followed the others.

Rest in Peace Br'nard...

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Weep your manly tears well while your little inventor is held captive :P

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

I'll be crying manly tears for a such a barbarian. Too bad Alphonse won't. A pity.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Cheers mate... A Barbarian has to go out in style, ya know? ;D

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Oo, I haven't had a good battle scene in a while.
Yes, that can be arranged.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Is there any point in posting here?
No one seems to respond...

Anyway it has to be said, I'm hoping Br'nard can have a decent battle scene here with the Witches Mage, as I'm not keen on the idea of simply being put to sleep and passively transported;
Just thought I should make that clear, I'd like Safir and Br'nard to be a good encounter and not simply over and done with in a few spells.
It also gives us the chance to post a great and memorable Battle before the others go on to fight the Witch.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Yeah, I can do that, no prob.

It's alright, we understand ... we don't want to cause any class-failing so please take your time. We'll look especially forward to any posts you want to make. :)


The witch is an NPC, but for the moment I'll take control, and Safir as well if needed.
So I suppose I'll post ASAP.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Hey, Lurelle. Do you think you could skip the rp ahead to where the heroes have been taken to the Dark Tower/Castle and are being confined in one particular area? While there, they could scheme and plan ways to attack the witch. I'm not going to be able to post regularly from now on. I'll probably have to withdraw Safir from the rp for the foreseeable future.

Really sorry to do this to you, but I'm really overworked and I can't afford to fail any subjects again... life is stressing me out.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Sorry that was for Katelyn no need to pay attention to it. :P

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Hope you get better.

Basically, Safir came and summoned three huge wolves, which were all killed in a timely manner ^^
Now Alyss needs to choose between death and .. Facing the witch.
I shall post POSTHASTE!

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Sorry everyone I have been struggling with somethings with my family and myself. Dealing with depression is taking a lot of time out of hands. Anyways enough with my lame excuses I was wondering if someone could help me get back into the story again, maybe fill me in on what's happeneing as well. Thank you Katelyn.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

*stares at last post* O.O Okay... that was odd.

Lurelle, sorry for holding up the rp. My semester started this week and what with work and all, I've been really busy and stressed. I've had like four hours sleep in the past two days and I don't understand any of my lectures :'(

So my posts will be a bit shorter and less regular than usual. Sorry about that. Also, if you need to skip my turn or take control of Safir to move the rp forward, you have my agreement.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

So I was all lurking around on the interwebz, as I tend to do.
And then I found dis are pee, called 'Wizard's Lawn' or something like that (insert trollface.jpg here), and was all "Dood, aweshum."
And then I was all "-Reads moar- -approves-"
And then went like "-Reads member's posts- -approves-"

And then the interwebz was all
Interwebz wrote:Note: no longer accepting.


And somehow I ended up here.

On a more serious note.
Like the role play, like the writing, keep it up. 8D Nice to see a role play that is decent and not DEAD.

*Shadowsteps off*

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

KT: Lies, lies, lies!
If our characters indeed meet their end: it will be in the most epic, badass way possible. I will personally see to that.

Unlucky: HOW DARE YOU. Do NOT give up so easily! :O Alphonse still has a good bit of fight in him. Also.
Remind me to make Alyss slap your character after this <3
You pessimistic quoting sillyhead.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Well, I don't think I'm dying, maybe. Well, seeing that you guys haven't gotten the attention of the number two guy, I don't think any of you are dying for a while. But that's me being optimistic.

Here's me being pessimistic! "Oh no, my character is dead. No more cheesy one liners or quotes stolen from the internet being refashioned for the setting!"

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Who said anything about the end of the RP meaning our characters dying?
>:D

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Thanks to being one of the first people in this role-play I cant seem to choose Jinx's death already. I am torn that this might end this way. Welcome back everyone that decide to join this role-play once again. We sure did miss you all. Sorry that I can contribute to my, and other characters, death.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Right, everyones favorite Barbarian is back on his feet!
Sorry I missed a chunk of the story, something came up, life does that, if anyone wants to hold it against me, tough.
But that said, I am glad to be here again and equally glad to see this Roleplay is still alive!

Point is I'm back now, and so is Br'nard, and he's heading into town, having missed the fight with the Demon he's pretty much at full strength and in no mood to get 'Pwned in a few hits' so I'm going to vote for the big fight scene as he'll most likely attack on sight, perhaps giving the wounded the chance they need to get clear.

Re: [OOC] Witch's Garden

Hmm, well as you guys probably know, my character Alphonse is partial to negotiations over fighting. So, I am inclined to have my character try to open negotiations. However, I am fine to go with anything you guys want, and will fully go with anything. Though, I'm not sure what Safir's reasons would be if he does capture us. After all, he only has a soft spot for mages, meaning my character, Elenie, and possibly Ira won't be in his good graces. Maybe the witch will want our characters for their various skills, and thinks that they will be useful for whatever world dominating plot she has.
