The Fall of Zweis

Well, that was enough of a confession to clarify what happened here, Saeth thought to herself. To be honest, though, it didn’t really matter; the one that was attacking them was the enemy, that was what mattered now. (And that he was evil, softly insisted the poet in her.) The Elf threw herself back into the fight, certain that she could fell her wounded and distracted foe.

Quickly realising that they were indeed enemies and this was not some Radu ploy to confuse him Maruc launched himeself at the surprisingly adept fighter. “You won’t surrender will you, foolish Radu. Throw down your sword and you shall have mercy should you wish it!”

Nicolai continued to attack Zweis from the rear. He slashed at the backs of his knees and shoulders, attempting to incapacitate him, but still doing damage.

The brothers fought on with renewed vigor. Antonito was getting sliced up by his brother’s sword, which seemed to cut through his leather armor like butter. Nonetheless, Zweis was surrounded on all sides. Eventually, he succumbed to the accumulation of wounds and collapsed into a heap upon the floor.

Miklos threaded his way though the carnal house of corpses and the unconscious he caught the sounds of combat from a doorway at the top of the stairs. Miklos swore to himself, he shouldn’t have left on that fools errand. He scrambled up the corpse strewn staircase to the tunnel where the nosies were coming from.

    Feldard: 1970/2200

  2. Feldard (Dwf 1)

    Feldard who had resumed his attacks from behind alongside Nicolai, steps back as the man collapses. He takes a moment to ease his heavy breath and puts pressure to the worst of his wounds.
    He then looks to the younger man, Antonito, then to the fallen Zweis and lastly to Maruc with puzzlement clear on his dwarven face. “So these two are brothers? And both are sons to that one there?” Indicating the Veiled leader, dead in the middle of the floor. “What kind of messed up family relationships do you humans have?”

  3. Saeth Tegau

    “My father always said this sort of thing was what happened when people left the trees and lost touch with nature,” Saeth opined. Still, she was a bit disappointed. A sibling to the fallen man did limit the possibility of salvaging and selling his kit.

    The swordswoman focused her attention on the Radu still standing. Oblivious to his shock and sorrow, she pressed him for explanation. “So your father was chief among the Veils? What issue did Zweiss,” she motioned at the man, “take with him? And what are you doing down here?”

    Neither of the younger Radu are dressed in typical Veiled Society outfits, right?

  4. Maruc

    As alway Maruc felt a pang of regret at the taking of life. The man had fought like a tiger, a foolish tiger but a tiger none te less. Seath had put her finger on it though. “Yes Antonito, why are the internal politics of the Radu spilling out on to the streets? What has the Duke done to your family that you should oppose him so?”

    And something else didn’t seem to fit, “Why slay the Vorloi girl? She was no threat.”

  5. Miklos (Mu 1)

    Miklos sagged against the wall of the chamber. “The Tribune will be summoned soon so if we are to gain any knowledge of these events for our protection I suggest we gather it now.” he turned to Antonito, “Not that we wish to be disrespectful of your deceased family members but we have just wittness a lynching and we have ambushed and shot at so you will have to forgive us.”

  6. Nicolai (T2)

    Nicolai stops to clean his blade, and then seeing that the others are asking the questions, proceeds to make a detailed survey of the room.
