melorion would come to visit Trip once he got information of the location, he would wait until trip is strong enough to speak before he begins asking the questions

Asking him about what he saw and what he found while offering Trip basic treatment also calling for the guards to bring a healer. While he's asking the questions he makes sure to not overexert him keeping check of his health

This time she chose to climb up to one of the trees. She found a nice well hidden place on a high branch and sat there quietly.
She has been there for more than a day now, the place is well hidden it seems.
Luckly for her, she knew the area...well at least to some extent. She has been here before during skirmishes against the drow, but never stayed that long.

She was bleeding again from the last assult. The tree was covering her well enough with it's leaves but she could still somehow see through them. Tay'lin was letting her wounds to heal slowly bearly humming a calm tune to speed her healing. She was concetrating hard to make it as quiet as possible so she could bearly hear it, she was using the sounds of the animals and the nature to comoflage her tune blending with it, completing it.

She was in terrible pain though, the poison from their arrows still lingered in her blood. But Tay'lin had experience such conditions before.
She thought of her old master Eliorean and his harsh ways. She remembered the weeks she had to stay in such conditions, practicing her mind and body at the same time.
Thankfully her equipment helped her to overcome the poison too, so she even thought to herself it was easier this time.

Tay'lin was deep within their territory..and there was no obvious way out.
She imagined they were looking for her, they seeked vengence against her for sure.
She attacked few of their patrols when she felt in danger, but she could not take much upon herself. She could ,in fact, kill many of them if she rounded them up together, but using her music would draw much more attention that she could possibly handle. She will have to wait for the right moment to make a break for it..but why would she really?

She is so close to the elven court..almost too close. Maybe she could learn something here? Maybe she should tempt her luck a little further and try to...
"Something is wrong" She whispered to herself. Tay'lin heard the drow shouting something she could not fully understand from her hidden spot. They started moving towards someplace or maybe someone. She was well enoug now to move. Tay'lin casted few wards as quietly as she could to enhance her abilities and changed her tune to something that would aid her stealth and survival skills. At last she casted an invisibility and moved on. Trying to jump from one tree to the other in the dense formations of Starwood and the Elven court towards where the drow are going, hoping that their attention would be drawn.

blue would seek the small group forming behind the inn after hearing of such being spoken by the guards..

he would ask questions of the others to find out what they know before asking the injured man himself for further details..

Trip would awake, a little disoriented but would soon smile grateful to be in the company of friendly folk once again.

He is famished, pale, and shakey, and has crossbow bolt wounds that aren't healing well do to the uncleany conditions he's endured nearly the past week or so.

He would be quick to tell them all he knew about Tay'lin's trail, how far he got, every river, stream, hill, great tree he could remember that he came across as well as the positions and numbers of drow.

With warm demeanor he'd finish speaking to save his strength.

"You're going to need an army if you go after her... and I'll be glad to come along. I just need some water, some wine, a bowl of stew and a couple more hours rest."

He has trouble getting up of his own accord.

Celovar would greet Blue and see to it that Trip was well taken care of. He would give him a hearty trey of food including some pork and some elven wine.


Tay'lin was overzealous attempting to go after the drow,. She moved to deep on her own and put herself in a dangerous position. I will not ask nor order anyone to come along, but I will not leave her out in the woods to die. Any volunteers are welcome, but I will not leave her to pass.

Melorion would nod then think a while befor he speaks with determination and bluntness

The keeper gave me permission to lead a search and rescue operation Celovar if that is of any assistance. Since you are my superior in rank you will be the one leading. Of course you do have my assistance in this task. But i highly advise we only take those that are able to stay focused on a task and can follow orders. If she's in deep enemy territory we need a disciplined and organized group.

I was going to form a rescue group myself but seeing you're the one more seasoned around that territory.

Tay'lin hated the healings more than anything. Every night she was tortured with magic, metal and poison and every morning she was healed...to some degree at least. They didn't want her to feel so well again after all. it was all a part of trying to break her.
The healing spells were different to her. It was nothing like the soothing, pleasant sensesions she remembered from her people or her previous lady of luck. No, they were cold, stingy, like putting an ice shard on an open wound. She lost limbs, fingers, eyes, teeth and bone only to have them again the next night for more torture.

Her throat was scorched and mouth filled with acidic rugs. But why would they do that? She was once the Armathor! The first Keeper of the rebuilt city! She oversaw herself the reconstruction of the new walls! She knew so many secrets and they had so much to squeez from her. But did they?
Tay'lin was born to the stage. Once an actor, a politician, a musician, an actor and a warrior. Could she have fooled them? Or maybe it was herself she was fooling all along. Who could resist such an assult for so long and not break? A hollowed husk of her true self! Or was she? The problem with being such a good liar is that sometimes you are not quite so sure what is true anymore. For only when you truely believe your own lies, others will believe them as well.

The years have passed. In her dreams and thoughts she was elsewhere. Thinking about her previous lives. When she was called Gode bye some people - Not nothing her true name *Slam*. When she discovered her soul volunteered to serve another god before she was even born *"WHERE IS IT"*. When her spirit grown powerful enough to actually leave her body and to finally do what she was meant to do *Scream*. Her short returning to the forests of Arvandor and discovering the truth *Whips*.

In truth she was the victim of her fallen egoistic crusade, for no one elf could ever hope to match the might of those who truely shadow the forest. She was not sure how long it has been. She did not know the time or the place. Her life served to purpose and she was wishing it would just end.

One of her eyes was missing, the other terribly gouged. But does a bard truely needs her eyes to see what around her? The voiced were clear and the sounds frightening.
Something was wrong. She could tell from the squeaking sound of the door of her cell. It was...trembling, moving slightly forward and backward but it did not hit anything. Almost as if...
There was no sound of breathing, no gracefull steps she was used to. What has happened?
She tried to walk slowly and sliently towards the door, trying to move it without making a sound. She sniffed the air around her, trying to determine where the air is fresher and moved that way. On her way she stumbled as something soft and slim was laying on the dark floor infront of her. A corpse, she could tell by the smell and warmth of it. Most likely a drow by how slim it was. There was no blood...hmmm poisoned. She moved sliently above it and kept going.

A sound of a distant battle outside. Quite distant and not too loud as well. She could her drow cursing and the sound of spells hitting whatever not. She cared not why some of them where fighting among themselves, for all she knew it was quite common. Listening quitely she tried to determine where more animals are. Birds? Wolves? Anything....and then there was a howl. Damn she was lucky!
She started moving towards it trying to lay low and being as quiet as poss *Bang* she ran into a tree.
The forest was so damn thick here the moon light could possibly get across. She stopped to gather herself for a moment, panicing on the thought that she was spotted.

She knew the area well enough to understand her only true way to escape. The Elvenflow, River Duathamper was to the south of the court. It was deep and wide, it will be difficult for them to follow her there. She could drown but she would probably prefer it even on escaping whole.
But how a blind deformed elf could make it that far alone in their territory? Previously she survived here but keeping to the trees. Jumping between branches and watching from a bove prooved itself quite well but she can't do that anymore. So she walked....Where the animals are, humanoids usually aren't - that is all she had. Tay'lin could not believe she was not followed. She thanked Tymora and Erevan Ilesere for each free step! But she was followed. A ranger spotted her from afar in the forest and went to investigate. "Hah! what an amusement!" He thought to himself. He will let her think she has escaped for now.

After some time the sun has risen. She has not seen it for 3 years now, not that she knew exactly how long it has been. She could start seeing shadowy images with her left gouged eye, but more importantly, she knew where the south was! She could move at increased speed now, traveling as fast as she can. It was quite surprising for her to witness her shape even after all this time. She ran and ran and ran for hours. No food, no water, just one leg after the other. Then a distant sound...Washing, splashing..."Wata!" She tried to say, her throat still buring. It can't be far now, must be a mile away or less *Thung* an arrow in her left shoulder. She started running once more, faster now! Another arrow passed and missed her, he was aiming for her legs! She moved left, behind a tree, it will cover her for some time. She must keep running...and running...and...and....no more arrows? She was getting dizzy now...poison!

Her time was short! She kept moving...vomiting now too. She could feel some water in the air now, she heared the river so well...she made it..."Well well...what do we have here?"
He was infront of her, between her and her freedom. She could hear his bow string streches.
She was bearly standing but determined to end it. She will not return to that place!
A step after the other she came close...trying to gain some speed listening closely to his bow string. *Flung* it cried and she gambled left, moving her weight to the her right side and plunging towards him! She hit him and pushed them both to the raging waters of the Elvenflow, not letting go!
Tay'lin knew she had to finish it somehow, the advantage was hers for a small moment and it must ended here! You can't choke one with only 6 fingers remaining but with her arm pit she can!
Quickly her hands locked around his throat. She was used to holding her breath from the tortures back the Elven Court. Holding ones breath in raging water is much more pleasant and easy to do than in dissolving acid! He stopped resisting after some time...she tried to swim above but...the poison in her blood was too strong...she finally let go...trying to get some peace.

She woke some time later. At the shores of the Moonsea.

Some healers here and there...her gouged eye looked a bit better now. She could at least see a bit clearly now. She made the long voyage to the dales again.
Some time later, Tay'lin found her way to Shadowdale once more.
