"Ah, but I am a man sworn to secrecy." Milter said.
"To who?" asked Gregory.
"To whom, boy! To whom. You did not go to lessons only to speak like a commoner." Milter tried to change the subject. "What about the beautiful Milly? Will she be at the wedding?"
"Whom have you sworn secrecy to?" Gregory replied, ignoring the rest.
"Ah, that is part of the secrecy." Milter said, with a sly grin. He pointed his simple
walking staff at the mess, and the fluid drew back into the casket. The casket magically seamed to never have broken.
Jayden smiled "I'm sure Auntie Jan would be very pleased to know your where abouts this evening. I'm sure she would arrange for a night time visit, if she knew where you were." The boys both laughed at this.
"You'll do no such thing!" He said with a nervous smile
"I will tell you boys of your Uncle's circumstances, but you must swear to tell no one. Any idea of searching for him would be futile."
"I swear by my name and the name of my father." Jayden and Gregory echoed.

Mitler bowed his head for a moment. They both to a step back at the gaze he raised to them.
"Your Uncle is on a quest for the sun stone." Mitler said gravely.
"But, that's just a myth." replied Jayden.
"A bed-time story." Gregory agreed.

Milter shook his head, his grey eyes sparkled dangerously. He hesitated in telling them anything more for a moment, he knew very well what they would do once they heard the truth. Yet there was a detemination in their eyes, thesame determination their uncle had bore on the day he set off on his quest and he knew that he would not escape until he had told them the truth, well part of it anyway. Sighing with defeat he began to tell the tale.

"It all began one evening, when a group of starngers had come to the city looking for a place to stay ...

Hagard and emaciated, they were turned away at all the inns. A stranger, finishing his mead at one of the inns, happened to hear their plight and followed them outside.

"I hear you be looking for lodging." He inquired.

"Sir, we have been turned away at every inn in this village. We are just travelers looking for a place to lay our heads out of the elements for one night." Replied the apparenty leader of the group.

"I may be able to help you but, it be no inn. Mayhap you will find it better than a bedroll on dirt. What be your name's, Sir?" Replied the Stranger.

The leader replied. "I am Gavner. These men with me are Dovim, Miron, and Welling." They greated the stranger in kind.

"I be Jarvin Wilmen." I have a farm just outside of town. How be I assured that you will not bag me, and take what be mine?" Jarvin

"Sir, i could not bag you even if i wanted to" Gavner shrugged his thin shoulders, smiling ruefully ... "You have it on our honour, it might not be much especially given our appearence but its yours if you choose it"

Jarvin led Gavner and his men to his quaint farm on the outskirts of the village. Upon arrival, it was clear that Jarvin was not the most tidy man in the region. If the mud wasn't enough to disuade the gang from staying there, perhaps the stench of rotten game and animal feces would. But, still, there was no where else to go.
"This be your palace for the night, boys.", said Jarvin.
The men peered into a dark, dusty barn which seems to have been neglected by both man and animal alike. The only creatures bold enough to occupy this small slice of netherworld were the rats and roaches that fed off the darkness. Even the spiders abandoned this area in fright.
Gavner looked at his mates. "Well, fellas, I hope you're tired enough to sleep through the night. You'll be better off that way."
Just then a woman called out from behind the men. "Papa!" Gavner and the boys turned around swiftly to see a vision of angelic proportions, a glowing maiden with skin as fair as goat's milk and bright blonde hair accented by the full moon. Was she a goddess sent from the clouds to bring happiness to the world? Possibly. But around here she was better known as Krystna, Jarvin's teenage daughter.

Jarvin smiled proudly at the image of his almost perfect daughter, her only flaw was her love of dark magic. A curse she would one day bring upon herself, so said the bickering wives of the townsmen. Yet this didn't stop Gavner and his group of men taking a fancy to her. "Papa"" Krystna called again. Jarvin looked at his daughter, an air of impatience about her. "what is it Krystna?" he enquired. Lifting a hand Krystna pointed towards the humble house across the small yard, which lay soaking in the light of the moon. Jarvin peered across, studying the house. He could see nothing wrong. sighing with irritation Krystna lurched into what she was trying to say, before her father peeled off every layer of the house by scanning it with his quick, mobile eyes. "There's a man papa, a man in the kitchen. He says he wants to speak with you. I - I think he is an important man." Jarvin's eyebrows furrowed deeply. A silhouette he had not noticed before now stood in the kitchen window. from what Jarvin could see, he was clearly a powerfully built man. Hastily Jarvin escorted the men into the barn, apologised for his bad hospitality and took Krystna by the arm.

Jayden interupted, "Now wait just a minuit, Milter. What does any of this have to do with the Sun Stone and our uncle?"

Gregor said, "Yeah, you're just trying to distract us with a story about a pretty girl again. We've had enough of your tricks."

Milter waved his hands in protest. "Not at all boys. I just have to make sure you know all the facts. If you're going to bully me into telling my secrets then I'm going to tell them my way. If you'd prefer I can just keep my mouth shut and we can go downstairs."

The two brothers looked at each other and shrugged. Jayden said, "Okay, but get to the point."

Milter said, "I was about to before you two interupted me. Now where was I?"

I'll begin, its a fantasy story. The rest of you just add what you want and let's see where it goes.

"They're coming." Jayden intoned as he and his brother, Gregor, looked out over the castle walls. The sun shone down hot and heavy and inside his armor Jayden felt as though he were cooking.
"Don't sound so ominous." Gregor said, giving his brother a playful nudge. "What's it been, 10 years, 20 since last they came?"
"15 then. And what happened last time?"

a wizard comes on the parapet."they are not what you think they are boys. they are shape shifters, of the race of rek-kar. they are deadly." then with a sudden whirl , he was out over the wall charging at the shape-shifters howling.as he did that other wizards flew out of the sky. the wizards and shape-shifters met with a defining roar.

Agreed. Can we roll back this to something that won't end in deus ex machina?
