The Third Trial: A Bit of Knowledge. First Entrance.

Ibani's third trial, a 'trial of knowledge', has been given to her. Harkun's expression of malicious glee when he ordered her to retrieve a holocron from the tomb of Marka Ragnos betrayed just how much he wants her dead.

The rules prohibit him killing her out of hand, but assigning a deliberately impossible trial is perfectly permissible. Great Lords of the Sith have tried to retrieve that holocron from its stone prison for more than a thousand years without success, but if Ibani does not produce it within 24 hours she will fail her trial.

And Harkun will take great pleasure in killing her. Slowly.

So it's hardly surprising that her thoughts are heavy with anger and despair when the door to her quarters leads instead to Milliways.

She startles, reaching for her weapon, as the Door closes behind her. This....this isn't Korriban! There is no feel here of the Dark Side, and the gravity is far too light, only about one standard gravity.

Would someone care to explain what's going on?

A bearded man in rustic clothing tilts head at the woman, and raises his mug in greeting; a fine steel sword rests close at hand. "Greetings."

If she was not being actually expected, at least her sudden arrival is not surprising?
nordthuum: (maybe)

Oh, Spellswords do, and they are not the kind one wants to mess with.

"Hm, no, I'm not; you fell into Oblivion and ended here, just as I did a while ago." The man takes a drink of mead. "I have yet to meet the ones responsible for the existence of this place, but the place itself does not seem hostile."

"...well, not unless you consider hostile the way it picks me up every time I try to enter an Inn; its fond of my septims, I guess."
nordthuum: (yes)

"Oblivion." He points to the Observation Window and its panorama of universe-ending. "I come from the province of Skyrim, in the continent of Tamriel and the world of Nirn."

"Guessing you, well, don't." Her attire might resemble a spellsword's, but the style is definitely... not.

Einar is... amused.

"Believe me, after the last few days, I'd need something much more... drastic, to be startled." Is that a hand on her waist? "Have a seat, and a drink on me?" She did move very close, very fast after all.

Einar is glad to not be killed by lightning, even if he does not know he was almost force-shocked. Even if he is likely to survive the experience, it would not be something the least bit enjoyable, much the opposite. "Then, we need to change that." He catches the attention of a waitrat and orders Alto wine for her, and a refill of mead to himself.

"I'm Einar of Grimseth."

Very much so.

"A beautiful name, fitting to you." He nods, smiling, apparently deciding to keep the conversation turned to nicer topics.
nordthuum: (think)

[personal profile] nordthuum 2013-12-11 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
"It seems to be rather common, from my experience... too many people are completely blind to where beauty lies." The scarification makes her look more fierce, and thus, desirable; he likes strong women.

The capital-spelling in noted and acknowledged, but the man decides to leave any comments about that for later.

"Hm. No, not if I can avoid it; marching as part of an army and fighting the fights other people pick for me..." He shakes head. "Every Nord learns how to use a blade, if they are worth the blood in their veins."
nordthuum: (talk)

[personal profile] nordthuum 2013-12-11 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
"I can use a bow, crossbow and such, but they are cumbersome to carry all the time; and break easily." He pats the hilt of the sword. "Good honest Nord steel works just as well, if you know what you're doing."
nordthuum: (wary)

[personal profile] nordthuum 2013-12-11 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
"Steel." He raises a brow. "Iron and corundum, smelted at the right temperature, heat-forged to a good edge; if done right, and used right, it will never need sharpening."

"The Orsimer prefer Orichalcum, the thrice-damned Altmer and their slightly-less-damned cousins use Glass, Moonstone and Quicksilver. I trust in Nord steel." An artisan, perhaps?
nordthuum: (right)

[personal profile] nordthuum 2013-12-11 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"If you don't mind." After all, he knows the feeling of not being comfortable with strangers handling his weapons.
nordthuum: (think)

[personal profile] nordthuum 2013-12-11 06:36 pm (UTC)(link)
He knows better than to touch the edges. "Hm. Interesting, and very different." After some careful examination, he offers it back. "Nothing like anything I ever saw."

"...well, maybe old illustrations of Daedric weaponry." But that's silly, this pretty young woman is not a dremora.

He hopes.
nordthuum: (right)

A nod. "There are two kinds of divinities in Nirn, the Aedra and the Daedra. The Aedra are beings of order and good, the Daedra are chaos and evil. The favored servants of the Daedra are called Dremora, and legend says they carry special weapons and armor made from the stuff of Oblivion."
