    The choice to leave was not considered lightly. for many years i have toiled with the idea that perhaps the caves are not wear we were meant to be. everyone can find piece with the darkness wear ever they go all they must do is close there eyes and the gods are with us once more.

    250 women and children. only 6 men, my royal guard are confident mages. we are whats left of a tribe of thousands. what once was piece in our lands has turned to blood shed. 200 men volunteered to stay within our territory the battle will wage on in my absence, they will fight to the bitter end.

    today we began setting our camp. defenses have been put in place as well as cloaking spells. it wont stop anyone from wandering in nor will it stop noise but with echo spells we have been able to redirect many travelers away from our camp. it sits between the capital city of the furless folk and the home city of the elves. we are away from roads and hope to stay hidden till we can find some allies. we once long ago were allied with the elves to help with the eradication of the inferior lionmen that plagued these lands. unfortunately those ties have long since been forgotten. ive sent two of my best women worriers to try to open diplomatic ties with both the elves and the humans.

    "my lord our scouts are having trouble navigating these woods they are far too thick what shall we do?"

    i sigh so is the curse of supreme command every idiotic question is sent to you.

    "clear the trees, i suggest wither to dust spells or if we need use of the wood cut them down your self just dont come to me with questions on HOW TO DO YOUR JOBS!!" i yell the last part. one would think skill full mages would know what to do in any situation. i cant blame them well i shouldn't. everyone here was raise in deep caves never seen a tree in there lives.

    i stand from my make shift thrown and begin pacing in the tent. "SERVANT!" i bark a young lad comes rushing into the tent.

    "yes sire"

    "inform the hunters to kill any animal that moves i want a feast tonight. i believe this land will be our claim for the future of our people."

    "yes sire!" he says before bolting out from the tent.

    i sit back onto my thrown. in the back of my mind i could sense a presence this land made me feel at home but something was lurking something i had not encountered before.

    Jair was passing through the same forest, stomping through it rather than just passing. It was all part of being a giant, there was no such thing as subtlety. Trees cracked as they were pushed aside, animals scurried from him small things like stags, and horses. Birds too, mostly when their trees were disturbed. His movements were a steady thump thump thump as stepped over obstacles that normal people tend to have trouble with.

    Even among giants, Jair was a big boy, he was twenty feet tall if he was an inch, and tipped the scales at better than a ton. His shaggy hair blew in the slight breeze, Hanging off his shoulder, and swaying off his legs was a one hundred five pound anchor. It brushed the tops of scrub oak, and other smaller trees, and brush. He wasn't going any where in particular as he often searched out magical lore on his own. Very few things harassed the giant as he journeyed. There was an easy swish, swish swish sound as his anchor swung.

    i sat on my thrown writing down a few spells i have been working on. nothing spectacular just need to get the wording right for a light spell. when crafting spells the words and what they mean is everything.

    one of my royal messengers enters. she bows before speaking "my lord i have news"

    "i have ears to hear the news" i say not looking up from my notes.

    "our scouts spotted a rather large creature heading straight for the barrier. general gau'ah insists that we send the 3rd and 4th squad to apprehend the creature, here are the request forms"

    he hands me the forms.

    "have we identified the creature to be of mind and soul or only mind"

    "the scouts spotted the creature and claims its equipped with a rather large metal object i would wager that the creature is of mind and soul however weather they be sane or not is unknown"

    "tell general gau'ah to hold off from starting a war with an unknown...GIANT!" i look at the report of close to 20 feet.

    "never mind tell general gau'ah to peacefully confront the giant i dont want any trouble"

    i write the order down and put my seal upon it. i hand it to the messenger and she bolts from the tent at top speed.

    i look out the flap of the tent as she goes.

    Large lionmen, powerfully built, and savage in appearance, and they were positioning themselves for a fight..with him. ~Foolish kitties~ Jair thought to himself, well if they were dumb enough to pic a fight with him, than he would fight. Hell they might win, there was enough of them. He started swinging his meteor hammer back and forth building its momentum until it started performing full vertical orbits on his right side as he looked from side to side gauging who might be the first group to strike. He was building up momentum when a harold showed up.

    She talked to the leader of the opposing group, and then with a few signals, the drawn bows, and readied weaponry was lowered. Jair breathed a sigh of relief not really wanting to kill any one he didn't have to, and let his anchor swing to a stop. The harold, and the general talked to one another, and there were deliberate looks toward him, and back towards their camp. They were talking about him the giant mused. He waited patiently as the pair of cat people spoke to one another. Waited for their next mover.

    the very nervous messenger spoke into the generals ear the general shook his head in anger hissing to himself before he let out a huge sigh. he mutters to his second in command who began yelling orders in cat speak. all the soldiers are female except for the general there seemed not to be any other males in sight. all the soldiers in the area began moving about.

    a moment later they were in line standing at attention on either side of the giant. a few people had stepped out from there tents to see what the commotion was. many of them had swords in hand expecting a fight from the giant but didn't look like they could give one if they tried. a pregnant mother stood behind her young daughter who dawns a bow and arrow drawn and ready.

    "make way for his Majesty king dac'are"

    all of the non soldiers in that area of the camp throw them self's to the ground bowing noses almost to the ground. this is why the camp seemed so big the areas around each tent were more like little roads with plenty of room for all the huge beasts to bow at a moments notice


    -------------------------------------

    i had wanted to see this thing for myself. my tent was some what in the middle of the camp. the camp was a good size and do to the trees position my tent was not in line of sight so i did not see the giant at first. but when we met the clearing at the edge of our border i saw it. a magnificent creature to say the least no doubt one of the gods best worrier races, one of is the operative word. he would make a great fighter in any army. though my mages would have him down in a heart beat.

    the four guards in front of me part ways signing me a salute witch is a fist held to the heart. i step into the field and i hear the forty soldiers all salute in unison. my general approaches me fist still on chest he bows his hes slightly.

    "the other generals will not like this." he growls. "i dont answer to the other generals" this is all done in whispered hisses in our native tongue. he sulks off mad barking an order for his second to follow him as they re enter camp.


    i turn to the giant.

    "ahndrkiae" i say under my breath. if the spell worked the giant should be a tad bit at ease a trick used to aid in diplomacy used many times by our ancestors when dealing with other races

    "i am king dac'are rightful ruler of the three tribes, i do hope that this is not your territory. ive got 250 women and children who are tired of long journeys we hope to make stake here between our ancient allies the 'pourantie' which means pointed ear or elves as they are now known now and the new race hu mans that have become a plague on this land. we hope to make allies were ever we can and we ask that you stay and feast with us tonight. ill order my men to hunt a very interesting animal you have here i believe they are called cows"

    i look up at the giant wondering if he even heard what i said.

    Jair was taken to meet with the leader of this particular sect of cat people. As he waited, he let his hammer swing by his ankles. He was a patient kind of guy really, and could wait for some time, his species was quite long lived, and he was young among his kind. As he waited, he began to feel a kind of pressure in his head, and could feel the runes on his face, and arms start to tingle. The the regal Simba leader of the cat people appeared, and Jair put two, and two together, and smirked.

    "I am Jair, this is not my territory." He said most amiably at the lion the smirk on his face, "I am looking for magic, and or magical lore. Maybe the occasional relic." He said with a nonchalant shrug, he was a simple being really, not one to be trifled with, but still a simple being, and didn't need any pomp, or ceremony. "Cows are a heard animal, typically tended by humans. I would recommend purchasing the meat from the ranchers, rather than steeling their cattle. I tends to upset any locals." The Giant remained noncommittal about his allegiance to any one especially amongst a group this large.

    (Ooc. Srry on phone many typos.)



    I smile. "Food was gifted to us by the gods for all to enjoy" i say side stepping his warning in a way that i hoped was not laced with dismissivness.

    I raise a hand makeing a follow me gesture. 20 soldiers fell in line behind the giant. The other 20 on eather side guiding the giant along the path.

    "I do belive you have found the right camp. Our people are born into magic. It runs through us like a river runs through soil. Stay for the darkness cellebration. it begins at high sun." i say pointing up. We reach my tent. People have gathered gawking at the giant. Some in fear others in awe but mostly fascination fills the air. Most of the camp is childeren. In fact most of the hunting partys are children with a single adult soldier. We are too weak in some partys eyes. An agreement with the giant could bode well for us. Though i hold the throan by divine right there are those that would like to see me hung for moveing our people so far from the gods.


    I raise my arms to the growing crowd.
    Im in a hill over looking the camp. My tent was put here so that i could adress the people below.

    "Do not fear we have not a beast in our mists but a soon to be friend, now go get ready for high sun we are feasting in the fields."
    The crowd disperses as everyone returns to there work at my order.

    I wisper to a messenger to dismiss half the guards as well. I figured if the beast were to attack he would be fighting every woman and child in the camp as everyone here has been trained. There was no need for a show of force.

    I motion for a messenger.

    "Tell the hunting partys to stay in stealth formation we cant have farmers noticeing whos hunting there cattle." i smile at the giant who is within ear shot of my command.

    Jair was deadpanned for a moment, the Lion King would not listen to advice, especially blatant common sense advice. He was gonna take a seat, but then shook his head. "Young King" he said slowly "I would enjoy very much like to stay for your celebration, but I am unable to. I must move on," The Giant shook is head "I have business to attend to, and if I do not keep my appointment it would be rather jarring to all parties involved." Which was the true enough though with multiple cows disappearing, enough for nearly three hundred large leo-oids to feed on daily, combined with a very overt giant in the area, it wouldn't take long for the locals to put two and two together, and come up with seven. In short Jair felt as if he would soon be hunted. He wanted to be out of the area before suspicion arose about him. "I shall take my leave of you now." He said with a nod.

    "I bid you, and your kin a farewell, and hope that your journeys are safe." He cinched up his meteor hammer so it wouldn't swing too much as he moved. Go on try to stop him as he moved away from the camp. The giant nodded once more, and started making his own way out of the camp. He was his own man, and wasn't going to be blamed for a crime he did not commit.
