The Ancient Archives (DM Rinji79. Players Rukiryo, Zeon, Mark, and Rf)

So it begins. Orolon village, outside of the Galan capital city of Zenewark has had many misfortunes in recent times. From the edge of town, it seems to be a quiet enough place, considering how tiny it was. There were only around nine prominent buildings along the main road. Out of those, only four had specific signs to mark their occupation. The first being the Inn, along the road there was a tavern, tailor, and a general supplies store. It was dark, with only a sliver of sunlight still over the horizon. The day was ending, and several of the shops were closing down. 

Among them, only the inn and the tavern were still open, and lit quite well. Smoke bellowed from their chimneys as dinner was cooked for their tennants and patrons. As peaceful as it seemed, there was a blaring noise from the tavern. It seemed that an old man shouted from his seat, obviously not happy with one of the younger customers sitting across from him. He spoke of a scroll, one that was especially precious to him, and he had searched for his entire life. 

"You young bastards would never understand! You will never know what true power really is! If you ever even tripped over this scroll, you'd just as soon wiped your bums with it! Because you're all a bunch of cretins!" The old man shouted, pointing an accusing finger.

"Ey! Anyone ever tell ye pointin' fingers ain't nice ye old sack!?" The young man stood up from his seat, his other three friends also no longer in good humor of the old man. "Might I have to teach ye a lesson, ye old gas bag?!"

It was obvious that he was ready to draw his large dagger, waving it in the air in a very threatening manner.

Evren left his sword in the armor. I am getting so tired of this, he thought angrily to himself, and simply decided to go for the simple solution: from the part of the blade that was embedded into the knight, he released a massive burst of pure magical energy in the hopes of frying whatever was inside there, and hopefully the armor along with it.

Seeing that the knight had turned to Hermes, Luke put the dagger away and took the bow off the ground, running backwards while doing so, and taking one of the enchanted arrows.

"Note to myself...", he thought, aiming to the armor's back, "... look for my elven arrows after the battle is finished."

Hermes looked down at his wound, wincing a bit. 'Just ignore it for right now.. I can tend to it later.' He thought as he grabbed his blade with his other hand. Hermes then proceeded to attempt a final blow, coating his blade in the darkness, thrusting it straight into the former gash caused by himself and Hermes.

"You all right over there kid?" Jerry called over his shoulder. Without waiting for an answer, he charged the armor again and started pounding at the large gash that Lesper had made, trying to widen it and force the rest of the smoke to vacate its residence.

Evren's attack blasted straight into the Knight's armor, and all of the evil inside of it felt the light emitting from the blade, and fizzled away into nothing. The armor went limp, started to rust all over and fell to the ground in many pieces, some of the armor pieces shattered. The evil knight was no more.

Jerry's attack bashed the gash and made it into a much wider hole, with shadow pouring out. As the Knight began to rust with just an ounce of shadow left, Lesper sliced into the knight's rust, and dissipated it into nothing.

As both knights fell, the travelers were safe once more.

"Awesome, it worked!" Evren said joyfully as he almost hugged his wand-blade, "what would I do without you, little guy?"

Jerry turned to Lesper. "Seriously, do you need some help? I've got a health potion right here, you look like you could use it," he said, taking out said potion and offering it to the bleeding knight.

"My shot wasn't needed, then." Luke said, as he approached the fallen armor and looked for his white elven arrow on the floor. "What is written on the scroll we took?"

"I. Hate. Armour." Hermes put bluntly.

The two suits of armor fell, and from them, the broad sword was left from one of them for Lesper, and from the other, there was a very large gold nugget that was dropped for Hermes. An enchanted Quiver was found among the rubble of the ancient library for Luke. This quiver is able to add mild poison damage to all arrows that it holds. After that, there came an enchanted bag for Jerry, one that can hold up to 300 lbs without hindering him.

Lesper gave the scroll to Evren, and as it turned out, it was a page from one of the great Grimoires. Out of all of the Grimoires in the world, this one was among the 10 that were legendary in their making. With this single page, it told the user about a spell, one that was able to locate very powerful magic. Essentially a homing spell that specialized in locating Evil Magic such as Black Spells and Necromancy. It was a single page, and it also made it possible to find the other pages to construct the whole Grimoire.

And so the travelers travelled on, exiting the now vanquished library as all of its books turned to dust in the wake of the hauntings leaving. Their journey, however, had just begun.
