Briz shoots Sab a cold glare and grits her teeth as she makes a fist. "How dare you, you worthless male!" She shouts at Sab then turns her attention to her other cousin cuts off the fight in an instant, her anger rising from Zeb's actions, Briz gives Zeb a silent glare as she walks past and gives a low growl. "You owe me a new guardian cousin." Briz huffs out before approaching and healing her remaining guards. "Ignore her invitation, accept it and I'll see to it you receive punishment." She growls out to her male guards then glances at the lead one. "I want my brother found and brought back to me instantly. I appear to have need of his services again...and I need someone to give Sabmice a very good beating for his words and causing all of this in the first place by bringing that demon here....he also should be the one cleaning up this mess." Briz says coldly before turning to leave to look for the Librarian herself.

Retreating Wizard

The soft foot falls and swirling of sturdy fabric lend speed to Sabmices feet. Ducking behind a book case he sees one of the triplets leading the head Liberian. The blind eyes of the half Drow women seem to linger on his hiding place before moving on.
Once sure he is safe Sabmice and Pookie make there escape.
In the open hallway Sabmice and Pookie find the nearest servant to direct him to his Aunt Yas'Er-raen. After a brief exchange of words Sabmice heads for the kennels. Once out in the yard Sabmice can't help but still look over his shoulder, sure the blind old women is waiting to jump out and tan his hide for having a hand in what happened.
Snarls and barking fill the air as he draws closer to the kennels. Drow men and women on foot and lizard back are seen bringing the hunting dogs and retrieving them. On seeing his clothes and the House insignia they all bow their head and step out of their way before going about their business.

Laughing Rouge

"To the city? Why should you wish to go there my laughing Darkling?" the Ride Master ask turning back to face as his daughter it thrown for the sixth time.
"Yes daughter of mine. Why do you wish to go there? You have but one day of rest and you would spend half of it traveling there and back?," a deep voice says from behind Avi-lorla Isuch. Even seated on her new vantage point Avi-lorla Isuch still finds her self having to tilt her head back to look up at her father.
"You will have plenty of time to go to the den of blades. If you will pardon us Mater Alakolg'eyl." lord Vor-lav says and the Ride master bows before leaving the father and daughter to speak.
"So you are home less then a few hours and already you seek trouble or 'fun' as your Wean Mother said you called it." Vor-lav says as he leans against the gates and pulls out a package and places it on her lap.
At his nod she opens it and finds a lovely grey crushed velvet vest. Lining the inside is a number of pockets, each one lined with velvet to protect any object inside as well as muffle an sound that lose coins or other things might make. In one pocket she finds a small polished, palm sized piece of metal. When she hold her hand to and take it away it holds the heat for a time before fading.
"Its a signal mirror." her father says as she pulls it out before putting it away again.
"All tools that I hope you use well in the service of the Matron and your self."
He gives her sometime to look over each item she finds among the pockets. She finds a set of fine throwing knives(+1), a bag of polished stone marbles and a fold recite.
"Take that to the leather workers. The last of your gift is there. But I have another matter to speak to you of child. Your cousin Zebeygin'riia, she is my twins child but has the wildness of your Uncle Elv-nol. I have spoken with her mother and we both agree that, like your Uncle, she needs some one to help balance her and help to keep her from disgracing her self and more importantly the House. We both feel that you would be the best person for that task. There is no need to try and get her use to a Guardian Twin like your Uncle, his twin and he fought more then not, when the Matron first paired them. But you two should get along fine. And here is one more piece of advice, save this trip to the city another day. Rest and gain back your strength. Find your Master who will teach you the path you have chosen." he says as he pat her shoulder, the look on his face leaves no room for argument.

The Hidden Warrior

The spider clicked its large fangs together as Kron called to it. Eight unblinking eyes regarded the young warrior as he saddled it before climbing up and heading out.
The rushing, thunders sounds of the fall can be heard not far down the fiver from were Kron lays in wait. Each second that pass seems agonizingly long as thought of what will happen if he fails scuttle about at the back of his mind. Any silent fear and doubts seeking a foot hold to weaken him.
"So, what are we waiting for?", such a simple question breaks the unending wait.
As Kron turns to look to his left he see a very handsome male Drow kneel down beside him.
"Hi." he says as he smile at Kron.

The Ranger in the Temple

The soft taping a slipperd foot can be heard as a impatient looks crosses the young priestesses face as she waits for Shriune reply.

A Book and a Prary

Briz guards got to their feet with all hast and struggled to keep the pace their mistress set.
"As you say Priestess but if you send one of to search your Lord brother out I beg you to return to the safety of your room or the temple.", the female guard says.
The full face of her helm is dinged and scuffed from Briz cousins blows in several spots. And it is obvious she is limping despite receiving healing.
As Briz searches out the Librarian she see down a isle what could only be the twin of the assistant librarian that was gathering the books she had asked. Following behind her silent as sin was a hunched figure that mover with surprising speed for one so old. Even from this distance Briz could tell she was only half Drow but she still wore the symbol of a librarian a pone her tunic. Briz had not spent much time in the library before the her trial in the underdark but she did recognize the figure of the blind librarian.

Blooded

Still overjoyed at the new blood Zebeygin'riia leaves with high spirits. As she and her pets departed the library a new sound greeted Zebeygin'riia ears. The loud protest of her pets empty bellies were soon joined by hers.

Kron lets out a snort of surprise as he is startled by the sudden voice next to his head. Kron's red eye watches him as he takes tally of any blades pressed against his back or sides. He breaths out slowly as the lack of sharp objects pressed against him makes him feel a bit better as he goes back to watching.
"Hunting...and looking for someone new to serve so I survive longer." He fingers the ring and wonders about if the deal is worth it or just a ruse to get more out of him before his death. He keeps looking at the other male out of the corner of his eye as it bothers him his animals, mounts, or him self never heard this man come up. He clenches his teeth at the painful dismissal of his sister and his thoughts on the other Lolth follower. Surely he can't survive for very long with all his failures with his sister. Maybe gallivanting into the wilderness or into the ranks of the solders might be his best choice since He can not think of any one who would take him in.

When Sabmice gets to the Kennals he steps lightly as he looks for his aunt, Yas'Er-raen. He makes a face as they step out of his way and shakes his head slightly as it reminds him of the time he was in the city and feels pity for them as they move out of his way seeing he knows what it feels like. He lets his eyes rove around the faces of the people at the kennels before asking about for his Aunt. He keeps glancing back at Pookie to make sure he is staying close at hand. Once he locates his aunt he bows to her respectfully and says, "I wish for you to be my mentor, If you will take me on Yas'Er-raen."

Briz glances back at her guard then gives a slight nod. "Very well then, allow me to finish up my business here then I shall return to the temple." She says with a wave of her hand before approaching the assistant gathering her books and the Librarian. "Excuse me, but I would like to inform you both of a mess and fight caused by my cousin Sabmice, in the family records area of your precious library. He had brought...a furry demon in the library and it attacked me and my guards here...due to this one of them wound up dead from my other cousin." Briz explains while growling softly to herself about the loss before speaking up again. "I shall leave one of them behind to help clear up the mess. I can assure you the family records are safe, and my cousins are not in positions to harm your library any longer at the moment.

Briz turns to eye her head guard. "Leave your surviving male here to aid the clean up of the family records area. You shall escort me to the temple before locating my brother." Briz says before turning to leave but waiting to hear what the librarian and/or assistant have to say to her.

As Shriune watches one of the spider-lings leave the temple he approaches the young priestess and asks her if she has seen his Aunt he has a message from some one he met while they were away for the year and a day.

as he waits for her response he makes a plane to go see the ride master and explain how he is not going to follow his worthless cousin and become a part of the temple. he is merely delivering a message that had been implanted into his skin as well as trying to avoid any of the other details that goes along with that.

"Yes, that sounds more... sensible."
Avi hugs the Ride Master and heads to the leather workers.
Then she must meet cousin Zeb. Duty is important.
Doing one's duty presents parties.

The Warrior and the Stranger

"Hmmm. You have the look of House Jhan'aste-iv. I would know the look of my beloved wife's bloodline." he say as he hunkers down next to Kron.
He gives Kron a thoughtful look as he thinks on what he said.
"Hmm. This seems a poor place to hunt game. Someone new to serve? Has something happened to my lovely wife? Do her daughters now fight to see who shall lead the House?"
As Kron looks the stranger over it is hard for him to tell if this male is making a jest or not.

The Partier and the Wildling

Zebeygin'riia's nose had lead her and her pets to the great kitchens of the House. All sorts of smells danced on the air, roasting meats, spices and herbs. The smell of a hardy mushroom stew drifted from a number of stew pots as well as the smell of roasting meats from the spits as they slowly turned above the fires.
A shriek goes up and as Zebeygin'riia turns to look she can see her wild haired uncle Elv-nol descending on a slab of uncooked meat. His twin is standing patiently by as a few deep gnomes run from her uncle's savage attack of the meat. Standing next to him is her aunt Lir'Rath, who laughs at the spectacle of her brother and the slaves. The head cook, a lean grey skinned red eyed Drow woman, glares at the brothers as she delivers a swift kick to a fleeing deep gnome as she yells at them to prepare another game lizard to replace the lost one.
Zebeygin'riia's pets are drawn to the raw, bloody meat and lash out, snagging a few mouthfuls before her Uncle drive them off.

Avi-lorla Isuch receives another spinning hug from the Ride Master before he sets her down and she dashes off. Once she presents the recite the head leather worker present her with a finely tailord leather armor.
A few question soon leads her to kitchens and her cousin.
"Well hello niece." Lir'Rath says as Avi-lorla Isuch comes through the door closest to her aunt.
Across the tables she see her cousin and her pets.

The Ranger in the Temple

"As you say my Lord." the priestess says and bows before departing.
It feels like a long time passes as Shriune waits. He can see that the temple has been cleaned recently and as the priestess left she had sent the slaves back in, to finish with some the last of the cleaning.
"Well, well. I had not thought to find a convert among my sibling children."
As Shriune spins about he see that his Aunt Am-Om. One slender finger taps her lips as she looks her nephew over well her elbow rest on her other hand. Behind her waiting silently is the young priestess. Shriune can see a trickle of blood coming from scratch marks on her face.
"Away with you girl." she snaps and the girl bows and backs out of the temple.
"So my nephew. What do you want? Be quick about it, I have little patients."

The Crown and her books

Unblinking eyes turn towards Briz as she approaches the librarian.
"It would seem to me that the Lord Url-ul has passed the creature onto his son. But be that as it may you were involved. So your guards and you, shall help. If not it will merely go into the daily report that I send the Matron. And she does take a dim view on those that do not respect the books and the knowledge they hold in their pages." the old half breed says as she turns and leaves Briz to decide.
Brizs guards turn to her to await her command.

Kennels and Master

Sabmice hears a snickering sound behind him. As he strains and looks a male and female Drow of similar age cover their mouths and give a quick bow.
"I'm sorry m'Lord, but Lady Yas'Er-raen won't take much notice." the girl says as she walks up next to him.
"My sister right. She and the Kennel Master been waiting fer this litter." the boy says as he steps next to his sister.
At this Sab looks at his Aunt and Nullrysn'as attention is on the whelping bitch. Only his aunt's Imp familiar turns his gaze up at Sab before making a rude gesture at him.
"Nasty little thing Lady Yas'Er-raen got fer a familiar. But if ya care to wait my Lord you could be one of the first to seen a new breed of hunting dog. It will be smaller of build with a longer body and if luck is with us the pups will be able to climb like a sticky pad lizard." the girl say before she dashes off to gather a buck of water the Kennel Master yells for.
"Or if not M'Lord can wait outside or I can show you about the kenells." the boy offers.

Kron goes quite still as he feels his stomach drop before pulling back in a sickly half living hope. He grimaces as he looks over at the male then back to the road and says, "I am a son of one of the priestesses and my sister has dismissed me. I am as good as dead unless I find another person to serve under. Which is what i'm doing. " Kron silently considers the stranger's position as he watches the path, hoping the male understands the spot he is in. He says softly, "I would like protection from the matron but I am willing to find anyone stronger to pledge my allegiance to right now." He struggles with not wanting to ask for help before reminding him self he is walking on limited and questionable time, begging for help is not above him at the moment, since this gambit he is taking probably still will end in his death. "Can you ask your...wife if she can take me on? I will do anything to ensure that you would do so." He looks over at the male drow with a strange hopeful but beaten gleam in his eyes before turning back to watch the path. He listens for an answer intently as he plans on taking as many paths out of death as he can.

Sabmice looks at the dog with curiosity before smiling, "Its fine. Quite understandable." He pauses as he watches his aunt with the stable master before smiling softly, "I wouldn't mind helping but I'm afraid I would be more of a hindrance then any thing, besides simple tasks. Also I would not like to pull away needed help. You can be really important to the little ones coming." He smiles and bites the inside of his lip as he figures any of his mixture of bad and good luck should probably sit away from the new breeds and current ones. "I will wait out side since I do not believe I can be of much help here at the moment. I will stay out of your way." Sabmice smiles softly at them before leaving as he sits out of the way of any one's path with Pookie. He shifts uneasily as he keeps an eye out for any Spiders or spiderlings, seeing he has no wish to encounter them again.

Briz pauses at the Librarian's words then softly sighs to herself. "Very well Librarian, we shall stay to assist in the clean up. Do not wish for you and your assistants to keep up after our fights. I do not wish any dis respect to the knowledge and books of the house here." She says with a nod to her guards before heading back to where the fight took place to begin putting things away herself while grumbling softly.

Stranger and stranger happenings

Powers that be, be kind. Let this desperate, beaten male not be my grandson., the stranger thinks as he listen to Kron.
"Who is your parent?" he ask once Kron finishes talking.
He waits patently, absently cleaning his well manicured nails as he waits for his response.
"Hmm, I think your prey is here." the stranger says and a few moments later Krons hunting dog tenses showing that something is approaching.
Soon a trio comes into view, there are two riding lizard mounts well the third rides a spider and appears to be having some trouble with it.
"Sister, do you need help?" the young priestess May'aceolin ask her sister as she fights her spider mount.
"Shut your mouth! You are no sister of mine, mother only took you in because she has no other children but me." the older girl snaps as she kicks her mount viscously in the side.
May'aceolin dose not respond but glares at the other priestess. riding point the male turns his head back to look at them as he nears Krons hiding spot to see if he needs to come to his mistress aid.
As he nears Kron hart beat slows and at the back of his mind a small voice says, 'Now.'


Clean up, isle 5

Briz's two remaining guards help gather the books and replace them on their shelves. As Briz picks up book after book she comes across the book she had been searching for.

- Lirdnolu'diira was the head of the minor house when it first joined House Jhan'aste-iv. It had been one of the larger warrior house till its fall. During the two hundredth and ninety year it was discovered that Lirdnolu plotted to steal a number of fertile lizards and break away and found her own House. After an intensive investigation by the Matron, House General and House Adviser it was discovered that the whole of the Lirdnolu'diira bloodline, save her youngest daughter who was attending the Lothen church, new of the plan and aided in it. After that the Matron had the family put to death. Lacking sufficient evidence the Matron allowed Ilph'thrae to live and take over as the head of her house. She has taken a number of consorts but only has one true born daughter and an adopted one.

"Lady Briz'Erthe." says a voice behind her.
As she lowers the book she is reading and looks she sees the Head Librians assistant bowing as she holds out a number of books and scrolls.
"The books and scrolls you asked for my Lady."
" Mistress Briz'Erthe, we are done here and the Head Libran says she allows us to leave. what do you wish to do Mistress?" Briz's female guard says. Briz can hear the suppressed anger in her guards voice at being ordered around by the old half breed.

A Wizard and a magically enhanced rabbit walk into a kennel

AS Sabmice waits with Pookie he see the two Drows running in and out of the room fetching varies things. Well Sab waits Pookie sniffs about the chages and kicks them if the hunting dogs inside snap at him. As he waits a group of male Drow returning with some hunting dogs and hunting bats walk in.
"Hey ya hear about that young Lord Kron'Amaloyss? My brother says he say him head to the spider stables. Saddled that wreched vermin his mother gave him and rode off."
"Ha! Can't blame him running off back ta the wild. I would if my mother was like his."
"Yeah, make good and split fer that sister of his dose what his mother did to her twin an-", their conversation comes to an abrupt halt as they see Sab sitting their.
Their eyes go wide as they see his close and insignia. Fear is painted plainly on their faces since they do not know how he will take their less then respectfully talking of his cousin and aunts.

“I am sorry to have bothered you Aunt Am-Om but I was looking for Aunt Zed'yas I have a message for her” was all he said in tone that was as respectful as he could possibly be without making her too mad at him for not telling the young priestess sooner.

Sabmice hisses slightly at Pookie to stop trying to fight before sighing if the creature does not listen and grimaces at his mixed present. He pauses as he hears Kron's name being uttered as he watches those two curiously and listens intently. He ponders Kron leaving for the wilds and wonders if that is why he did not see the beaten shadow of a drow lurking about earlier. He smiles grimly at them and tuts softly, "You know you are not suppose to talk ill of the nobles but you stay my hand for now since I wish to know more about Lord Kron'Amaloyss leaving. As well as any other rumors shadows like you might of heard about the spiders?" He smiles at them as he adds, after checking that no followers of lolth are about "Care to indulge me what else have flitted about among you shadows about the ill fitted cousins of mine and their predatory mother? It may stay a lashing from the spiders and the guard-less spiderling." He smirks at them with a half cocked smile at the vague threat he may alert the priestesses of their ill talk, or treat them by conveniently forgetting about the back talk against one of the other nobles. He notes down their looks and wonders if he can use them as shadows about the house to find things out about those that cross him.

Kron whispers out in a dead voice as he says, “Zed'yas, the first priestess of Lolth, Seventh child of the matron, is my mother.” When alerted to his prey arriving he stiffens and eyes the male for a moment before looking about for the male he is ment to kill. He curls his hands about the reigns and bristles as he hisses out softly, “I will wait for your response, if you give one. I will be serving in the stables for month’s time after today. ”
(16+4) He urges his spider mount forward as he hears the voice in his head. He uses it to spring at the side of the guard to slam into his lizard mount .
(20) He quickly draws his sword to slice into the male Rider to quickly remove him from the fight, intent on keeping the Lizard for him self if he can kill the rider, and save the mount from his own beast.
(20) Once he dispatches the rider he pulls his own mount off the lizard mount so it does not devour the lizard mount. He lets his spider feed on the male drow though to treat it. (15+4) He then reaches for the reins to catch he coos the reptile into a controllable state. No need of losing a prize of a fight. He eyes the women to see who may be winning in their fight.

Threats and Masters

The two drow males go wide eyed at the threat before bowing low.
"We meant no offence m'Lord." the first stammers.
"Tis true. It was all in jest. But if it is your Lord cousin you wish to know about we can tell you." the second says quickly.
The hunting dogs snap and tug at their leashes but both males give them a kick to quiet them.
"Your Lady cousin, the young priestess, she reprimanded him in the open before those of the lesser house. She dismissed him." the first one says and glances about nervously as if expecting one of the High Priestess to appear from somewhere.
"Yes, yes, she said she had no use for one who failed her so and wanted him away from her sight till she could find a proper use for him." they look about nervously and jump as the two young Drow Sab had met earlier run through the doors to Sab's right and dash out.
They stubble out of their way as they each return, one with an armloads of clean blankets and the other fresh clean bedding.
"Oh m' Lord, Lady Yas'Er-raen demands your present." the female Drow says as she bows before disappearing through the doors.

Ranger's blessed and cursed

"My sister? You seek my sister?" Am-Om says.
The smile she gives Shriune is sweet and pleasant and sends a chill down his spine. She gently places a hand on each of his shoulders and draws Shriune to her, he hears her chanting in a low voice in an unknown tongue, that sends another shiver down his back. He feels a terrible cold as she kisses his forehead. It is a chill so cold it burns and the skin tingles as she steps away from him.
"I may not be the High Priestes you were seeking so I shall leave the honor of bringing you to Lolth's worship to her. But I shall leave you with a blessing my sweet nephew." she says as she raises a hand and gently stokes his left cheek.
She moves past him and snaps her fingers as her consort and personal guard appear from their hiding places to surround her.
"Oh before I forget sweet nephew, my dear sister is currently not within the House Boundaries. After she met with her children she had business to attend to in the city. So it will be some time before she returns. Do as the Matron suggests. Rest and search for a Master while you can." she says as she leaves him standing in the temple with another sweet, chilling smile and a wave of her hand.
And with the gentle swirl of spider silk Shriune is alone in the temple.


A road diverges in a cavern, a Warriors chooses.

"Well at least he is not my grandson." the strangers mutters softly to himself as Kron attacks the other Drow Male.
The stranger turned his eyes from Kron to the two priestess'. The one on her spider mount seems to have lost all control of her beast and before anything else happens an orb of darkness enveloped the two of them.
As Kron turned to watch he see an area of darkness that even his eyes can not see through.
"Orb of darkness boy. Don't bother to squint, won't do you any good." the stranger says as he gracefully jumps and lands near Kron and walks towards him.
A shrike of pain barely reaches their ears over the deafening sound of the Wailing Falls.
Soon after the spider mount staggers from the area of darkness, rider less and very shaky. Without a rider it attacks the first thing that its eight dark eyes settled on.
It clicks its mandibles as it charges the Stranger.
"Oh bother." the Stranger say as he pivoted at the last moment and the spider goes charging past him and stumbles.
"Well that enough hunting for me. I hope your hunt ends well for you. As to your request young Lordling. I shall do all in my power to see that as many paths are open to you. But only you can chose which to walk." he says with a wave and departs as quickly and quietly as he arrived.
As Kron turns his gaze back to the area of darkness he sees it has begun to fade. Crawling on the ground towards him is the elder sister. Standing towards the center of the evaporating area of darkness is May'aceolin. Though the elder sister seems to have had the worst of the fight May'aceolin has not emerged unscathed. She holds her hand to a wound on her side but turn and calls for her lizard mount that had fled the opposite direction of the spider. She stumbles towards the lizard and reaches into her saddle bag.
"YOU!", Kron hears yell at him and he looks back down at the elder sister.
"Defend me!" she shrieks at him.
Across the way May'aceolin has found what she sought in her saddle bag. Kron recognizes the eight bladed sacrificial dagger his mother and Aunt Am-Om have used to rip the still beating hearts from the chained sacrifices.
"Defend me you fool!" the Drow female screams as she pushes herself to her feet as her sister comes at her.

Briz glances the book in her hand over briefly before setting it down on a nearby table and looking at the assistant. "Thank you, we shall take our leave now. I have other business to attend to. But I will be back later for this book to read it here." She says while tapping the family records book before motioning her male guard to take the books and scrolls from the assistant. "We shall return to the temple then you shall seek out my brother." Briz says while eyeing her head guard and leaving the library with her and the male carrying what she requested and makes her way to the temple to find a place to read in peace.

The Priestess and her guards

The Drow Liberian hands the books to the male guard then bows and backs away. Briz's head guard bows and snaps out a quick order and soon Briz is escorted to the temple at a fast pace.
As the small group turns down the hallway leading to the temple Briz sees her Aunt Am-Om sweeping down the towards them with her consort, personal guard and some slaves. Her Aunt doesn't seem to recognize that Briz and her guards are there and she and her guards are forced to one side as her Aunt passes.
As Briz and her guards continue on their way she remembers her Aunt four children. She had an elder daughter and the last three were triplets, one girl an two boys, but none had survived the year and the day.
As her head guard pushes the doors to the temple open Briz sees a cousin that did make it through the year and a day. Standing in the temple is Shriune.

Sabmice rubs his chin as he considers what he is told as he looks thoughtful on the new information. Kron ran away from his sister who may kill him for his failures... the underdark was not nice to him with his return then, how can i use this to my own advantage. He snaps out of his thoughts as the two run out and pass as they give their message to him. "Ah yes well, I'm willing to forget this time for speaking ill of a family member, even if he is a less liked one. But go on. I'm sure you have other things to do." He looks down at Pookie and wonders if nudging it is a good idea before clicking his togue against the inside of his teeth and saying, "Come Pookie and keep close." You crazy rabid creature, he adds in his head. He leaves the two males as he notes down what house they are from to see if he has any thing to worry about more then one would worry about. He slips into the room and keeps out of people's way that are rushing about as he approaches his Aunt. His eyes follow her as he waits for her to address him. Even though he is home he has become wary of females because of his time in the city.

Kron watches the darkness as he looks perplexed at the shadows he can not see through but keeps his eyes open for danger coming out of it. He cocks his head slightly at the other male warning him about the darkness. He perks up at the wail as he wonders if the woman he followed failed or succeeded in her mission.
Kron watches the other male leave for a moment before turning his attention back to the fight. His eyes watch them both with the chill of an alter as he sees the sister merge wounded. He frowns as he starts to turn to leave before stoping as he sees the darkness letting up. He pauses as he watches the women continue the fight and notes who is the most wounded and who is not giving up. His dark eyes lingers on the one on the ground as he continues to watch her. He eventually pulls his eyes to look at the younger sister. He shifts his stance to see how this plays out and keeps his distance from the others as he keeps an eye out for the spider mount potentially charging him. He considers the males words as he stands down content not attacking and threaten his other paths. He ponders on what he can do before silently admitting to him self that he prefers the wilderness over the house. Maybe he should spend the rest of his free day out here.
(20) Once the spider gets back up he soothes the vermin to slow its attack and become reasonable for him to get it to stop and come up to him so he may check on it.
(16)He frowns as he sees two legs missing on its left side and softly coos to it as he gets some webbing from it. The legs had a clean cut that either sister could of caused with the weapons they have. He slowly wraps the missing limbs with the webbing as he listens for his current mistress to ask something of him.
(19)He frowns slightly as he wonders what the male may of done since it was the side the male ducked towards. He glances in the direction the other male went and frowns as he wonders if he should take the male on as a master since he is up for sacrifice with his own family. He has no strong connections to the house since his sister dismissed him, besides he is a lord there. As far as he can see death and punishment is waiting for him back there.

Apprentices and Masters

Before heading in to see his Aunt, Sab notices that the clothing the two males were wearing had the symbol of the second animal handling house, a roths footprint with two staves crossed in the middle of it.
"Change into these." Yas'Er-raen says and tosses a buddle of clothes at him.
"No need to ruin your House finery. You would be a poor sight, showing up at the feast the Matron is holding in honor of her grandchildren returning. And I will not have my apprentice showing up in stained and soiled garments." she says as she turns back to the group of whimpering and hissing pups.
"They have been cleaned and weighed. Your task is to put these caps on their tails then feed them." Yas'Er-raen says as she looks back to the mother.
Now that his Aunt has turned Sab can see the Kennel master and some of his daughters bent over the hunting dog.
"And should Master Nullrysn'as and his daughter fail to save the mother you will be responsible for all their feeding. I expect you to keep a detailed log of feeding habits and growth.", she says. Then she turns and the two Drow Sab first met when he came in step up.
"This is Aun'jssoyss and her brother Quevrak' Zez. They will see to the pups training. They are among the youngest of Master Nullrysn'as bloodline and well versed in the training of the hunting dogs." as Yas'Er-raen says each of their names they bow respectfully to Sab. Then with a wave from Sab's Aunt they take a basket and begin to collect the pups.
She watches the two of them before turning back to Sab. She reaches out a hand and rests the tips of her fingers on his House insignia. Her eyes close as she mutters something under her breath. Sab can feel the tingle of magic dance across his skin and soon his Aunt's eyes open again.
"I have unlocked the first of the abilities of your House Insignia. We are known for the animals we breed and train and so all the insignia's first ability helps us with these creatures. I will expect you to show up once you have had breakfast to begin your studies. I expect you to keep up with your studies and the care of the pups, neither tasks can have less then your full dedication. Do I make my self clear? Good, then about your tasks. I shall send my familiar for you when its time for you to get ready for the feast."
With that his Aunt turns and begins speaking with the Kennel Master and soon he sees his Aunt use a spell to levitate the mother and move her to a different room. As Sab looks around he finds he is left alone with the pups and the Drow girl and boy. By the look of them Sab can guess they are about his age.
The basket between them is well padded with blankets and they have wrapped each pup in a separate blanket, so that their basket is filled with five wiggling bundles. Sab can see there are still four more pups to be wrapped up and Pookie is sniffing at one that hisses at the long ear creature.


Death by the River

The spider clicks its fangs together as Kron tends to it. As he wraps the legs a shrill scream cuts through the roar of the Wailing Falls.
As Kron looks over he can see May'aceolin standing over her sister. It is plain to see that the elder sister is dead since her heart is held fast in the eight blades of the ceremonial dagger. She turns to call over her lizard mount but only a horse, squeak escapes her lips. After one more attempt she walks over to her mount and grabs hold of the reins and pulls the lizard over to the corpse.
With a simple gesture the lizard stands stills with its eyes fixed on the corpse. May'aceolin is not gentle as she strips her former sister looking for anything that maybe of use. Once she has the body striped of clothing she goes about striping all the jewelry. Anything that is not distinctive goes into the saddle bag while anything that could be identified as her departed sister is thrown into the river an soon swept over the falls and gone.
As Kron turns back to tend to the spider with the missing legs he sees the saddle. It is a fine saddle with very intricate scroll work and fine lizard leather. The saddle bags are made of the same fine leather and have some basic rations, two skins one with water init and the other some of the mushroom beer that is common in the Underdark. The sound of bone cracking makes Kron look up and he sees that May'aceolin has smashed in her sisters head with a large rock before letting her lizard mount begin to ravage the body. Once the lizard is done, May'aceolin shoves the bits and pieces into the river to be carried away. She cleans her hands in the shallow water before turning to Kron. She tosses the belt pouches at Kron and it lands at his feet with a thud. Inside he finds five gold pieces, three silver and a handful of copper. Wrapped up careful is a glass vile that looks similar to the healing potion his mother had given to him earlier.
"You kept your end and I will keep my end Lord Kron'Amaloyss." she coughs out as she gets back onto her mount.
"I shall find you when I have my Mistress's answer for you. You'd do well to get rid of any evidence that this fight happened." she says with a nod of her head before leaving him.
Her coughing is swallowed up by the roar of the river as he finds himself alone to decide what to do with the spider and lizard mount and the remains of the dead Drow male that his spider did not eat.

Kron watches her silently before they turn to the bag at his feet. He arches his eyebrows at the gesture and seems considerably puzzled as he bends to take it. He looks through before looking back at the priestess. He nods slightly as he looks at the body he has to deal with before loading it onto one of the mounts in his care. Afterwards he loads his spider up with the left over gear then leaves with the animals he gained. He rubs his head as he considers heading back to the house before walking about the house to find a good place to stay out side the house. As far as he can tell he is a failure in all their eyes except for that one priestess.
(17) He locates partway down the cliff face there is a decent set of holes that are hidden by the sheer cliff face. He ties off the lizard as he gets the spiders to head down to it. Before he starts the decent he unsaddles the lizard to stole the saddle away in the cave. (16 +4) He leads the wounded spider down he sees if he can get it to a cave to start nesting there. He rides his own spider back up after unsaddling the wounded spider. (20) Looks over the lizard before clicking his teeth to have it follow him and his spider as he finds a hidden spot for it to house with his hunting dog for the night. He heads back to the cave and settles in for the rest of the day as he makes it more livable for him and his spider mounts. He considers heading into the Mushroom forest to see if he can find a large mushroom he can possibly hollow out and have his spiders live in the cap. He frowns slightly before reminding him self this spot is pretty good. Away from deep waters, up on a cliff, and not far from the house. He clears out his area so the bat can rest in a smaller hole near by so the spiders don’t snack on it because they are hungry. He quietly starts to train him self to become better then he was at hand to hand combat and work on his speed. He has no wish to show up at the house unless needed such as his punishment with the ride master. He quietly considers bringing the lizard to the house and caring for the lizard there.
His eyes fall to the floor after a few hours as it hits him that he has no master any more to train him. He stares at the floor as he hopes for something to come to him before deciding he has to rely on him self. He frowns slightly as he mounts up his spider again and heads out. He sends his bat out to hunt for it's self. The body of the other male drow can provide food for one of the spiders for a few days but he would need more for the others. He whistles for his dog to follow as he heads out to hunt and forage for food. His eyes linger on the mushroom forest as a source of food for him self before heading to the roth farms to hunt any thing preying on the herds, sentient or not it is still food. Maybe be can request milk or meat periodically from the herds for his preying on those that may take the flock. If prey proves to be scarce then he will move his hunting else where.

Briz eyes Shriune before looking at her head guard. "Send your man to look for my brother, I intend to stay here and read up on what I can." She says before walking past Shriune with her reading materials then pausing. "And what are you doing here cousin? What business have you in the temple of the spider queen?"
