-Market district-

"Heminad are we ready?" a man dressed in expensive robes asked from another person who sat on great dark brown horse.

"Yes my friend, we can be on our way whenever you wish" Heminad said to the man named Brandyn.

"Good....very good....I believe we should go right now, the city is getting too dangerous for me" Brandyn said and continued "I've heard those cursed peasants have found out about me"

"Don't worry, we'll be on our way before noon." Heminad calmed down his friend. "There is no reason to be afraid, they'll never hear about the incident"

"Are you sure....I believe that..." Brandyn said but was interrupted.

"Be silent! Remember who brought you this far. If I hadn't you hadn't just killed those peasants..." Heminad said with strong deep voice.

"You know they deserved it, no one remains unpunished if they even touch my horse without permission" Brandyn repplied.

"Enough with this! We'll handle this later but now we should be on our w..." Heminad stated but his last words were never heard as an arrow struck right into his neck.

Heminad gasped for air as he fell to the muddy ground but he knew that he wouldn't make it. His last toughts were "Brandyn you fool.."

Brandyn stared towards his bleeding companion for a mere second before his eyes were filled with horror and he quickly started to run straight away from the direction the arrow had come from.

He looked forward and saw an guardsman closing in "Help! Help!" he yelled but when he was just about to reach the guard he saw an halberd rise up into air. Brandyn dodged the guard's halberd and kept running.
He had lost all hope but then for a short moment he regained it as he saw an open door in front of him, he could lock himself in until guards would arrive but then he felt a strong grasp on his neck. Immeaditly he was brought down on the ground and an leg covered in thick armor kept him down.

He looked towards the man who had tripped him and saw an knight dressed in slightly darkbrown suit. "Who....who are you?" he asked with so small voice that only the knight could hear it.

"I am known as Gareth "The Huntsman" , and I and my friends are here to deliver justice" The knight said before Brandyn lost his consciousness.

So now when I have my little start made up it is time to introduce........
The Righteous Sword

The Righteous Sword is a small group of peasants and ex-bretonnian nobles. They all seek out to correct the wrongs of the Bretonnian system of power (economy etc.). The Righteous Sword usually seeks out possible ways to increase peasantrys rights and punishes those who have done evil without proper reason for it. In combat they are excellent warriors at range and melee distance. The group can cause a lot of damage with their well coordinated attacks behind enemy lines. Almost everyone in the Righteous Sword wears darkbrown colors and that is one of the few ways to regonize them.

Gareth "The Huntsman"
Gareth Marchand is a former bretonnian noble who was born in Nez on year 2497. Gareth spent most of his time with other nobles but in his youth he also met several peasant class persons and formed a strong pond with many of them. Soon Gareth wanted to change bretonnian economy so that peasants would have more rights but it took several years for him to take action. When Gareth was 17 years old he took up a knightly oath and became a errant knight. Later on he proofed to be worthy to be called knight of the realm and not soon after that he finally desided to tell his father about his feelings towards the bretonnian economy. His father was a wise man and he knew that system should be changed and he promised to drive forth the peasant rights. And soon 22 years old Gareth took up the quest to seek out lady of the lake and to proof himself forthy to be called grail knight. Just few months later his father spoke about rights of the peasantry and the lacks of bretonnian system, for those words a young noble stabbed him in the middle of a speech. The man had been drunk but that didn't protect him from the law, the man lost his head for what he had done. It took years but finally on 2523 a message about his fathers death reached Gareth who immeaditly returned to Nez. He understood that the nobles of Nez would never loose up the leash they had on peasants....he decided to act. After some time Gareth contacted some of his noble and peasant friends and asked them a serious question.....would they be willing to stand up for what his father belived in.....and so on autumn 2524 the Righteous Sword was born.

Lionel "Oathbound"
Lionel is one of Gareth's noble friends. Lionel was born into a noble family far away from Lyonesse but before he could even walk they moved into Nez. Lionel and Gareth have known each others from early childhood and Lionel has always followed Gareth where ever he went. Lionel followed Gareth even during his quest for the grail even tough Lionel was not a questing knight himself. Lionel is a knight errant who never got the change to proof himself on the battlefield and so he is still knight errant. During their childhood Lionel gave an oath of friendship to Gareth and from that moment he has been known as "oathbound". Tht oath was put into a test when Gareth asked if Lionel was filling to take up the cuse to help peasants....he agreed. Lionel wears the colors of the Righteous Sword and he prefers to use chainmail instead of the normal heavyarmor. In combat Lionel prefers skill and speed over strenght and so he mostly uses either shield and a sword on the battlefield or he takes up more agressive path and wields a small axe with his sword.

Uther "The Broken Heart"
Uther was born in a rich family within Nez. In his childhood he met Gareth and together they grew up into knights of the realm but when Gareth took up the quest Uther had to stay in Nez and handle family affairs. It didn't take long before Gareth's father began to talk about peasant rights and Uther was willing to support that cause but then his father who was a powerful within Nez heard about it. Uther had no family expect his father. There was a fight between Uther and his father and it happened so that Uther was thrown out by his own father. Because Uther didn't leave the cause without warning his father unherited him and on one morning his father had thrown everything Uther owned onto the muddy streets of Nez. Uther was furious and soon after a new fight his father challenged him into a duel. Uther refused to fight against his father but how could he have known what was to come. It took just a few days before his father went crazy and stabbed Gareth's father to death and soon after that he was publicy executed. Uther cried for a long time but then Gareth offered him the change to join the Righteous Sword......Uther couldn't understand...his father had killed Gareth's father and still he didn't bear a grudge against Uther. On that day he rose up against the bretonnian system.

Reynard "The Pure"
Reynard is an old man who met Gareth a long time ago but their ways were separated when Mark took up the quest and Reynard decided to take up the ways of the pilgrims. Reynard spent several years following grail knights across the realm of Bretonni but in one point he had a vision. In his vision he saw a city called Nez, his home town. The town was burned to the ground by dark figures and in the burned cities peasantry cried out for thei fallen. Then a woman came to him and told him to prevent it. Some say that he was just hallusinating but he himself believes that he saw the coming future of Nez. It took several months but on one certain winter he met Gareth who asked if Reynard was willing to join the cause of the Righteous Blade......he saw it as his way to prevent the coming chaos and so he agreed.

Oh No!!! Turn ended and I hadn't writing finished up my character profiles yet!!!! Shocked
well just have to deal with it.

Justin "The Flying Arrow"
Justin met Gareth later than others....he met him after Gareth had took up the quest. Justin was a skillful longbowman in a castle at the outskirts of Lyonesse. He was fast runner, he knew hot move in cities and he was more accurate with a bow than anyone else. He lived a good live in there but then on one day while he was walking on the castle yard and tripped right infront of his lord. The lord stated that he couldn't have such clumsy warriors in his troops. Justin was thrown out and great rage rose within him. It felt unfair....if a nobleman had tripped nothing would have happened but because he was a peasant he was thrown out. Justin was going to join a band of mercenaries to gain his living but then he met Gareth who has returning to Nez. Gareth met him sitting by a road and invited him to have a drink with him. That was not a normal thing for a knight to do but Justin accepted the invitation. After some moments Gareth asked Justin how he felt towards the system and the nobles of Bretonni. Justin didn't spare words while he stated his mind. Then Gareth made a question: was he willing to stand up against the system.....the answer was yes.

Estelle "The Rose"
Estelle was born in a poor peasant family which had almost nothing at all. Even tough they lived in poor conditions Estelle bacame a beautiful woman. She helped her parents in daily chores and didn't complain about the poor conditions. Back in her early youth he met Gareth. It was a whole new experience for her....noblemans rarely spent time with paesants but somehow Garteh even seemed to think them as equals. As years passed these two persons grew and formed a strong bond between each others and few years before Gareth bacame errant knight they fell in love. They spent lots of time with each other but they had to keep it in secret due to the common habits of Bretonnia. Years passed and finally Gareth took up the quest and these two lovers were separated for a long time. It didn't take long after the death of Gareth's father that some noblemen came to Estelle's home and demanded that the family paid their taxes. The family claimed that they had no money but they promised to pay on next week. The noblemen laughed at this and took action. One of these three men started to wreck the place up while another pushed Estelle's parents away and grapped her in his strong hands. Father tried to stop the man from harming Estelle but paid it with his live. Estelle would never forget that moment when she saw her father get pierced by a sword and her mother was slain by another man. Estelle cried out but no one was there to help her and horrible thing would have happened but then suddenly there was a sound of a blade unsheating. It was Gareth who had returned from the quest and now he was going to help his lovedone. The men turned towards Gareth and combat started. The battle was unbalanced but Gareth had learned many things on his quest and was very skillful with blade. Gareth won and came to Estelle. After burying her mother and father it took some time to Estelle fully recover but after that she wanted to help Gareth and join the recently formed Righteous Sword. Even tough she was a woman Gareth saw her as equal and so he taught Estelle to fight and finally she stood with Gareth on the field of battle.

-Somewhere near Nez-

It was dark evening as Gareth and the others were sitting by several fires.
They had faced almost no resistance at all when they had arrived to the area.

Gareth looked towards his friends sitting by the fires. There was about twenty of them and his most trusted friends sat by the same fire as he. They all had come here for good reasons. Then suddenly Gareth noticed that one of his friends was missing, where was Lionel?

It took a couple of moments but soon Lionel came to him and told that one of their men had arrived from an urgent mission Gareth had give to him. "Tell him to wait for me by the horses. I'll be there soon." Gareth said and Lionel left the warmth of the fire.

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

It took a couple of moments but soon he was aware of the information they had gathered. Gareth walked back to the fires and spoke.

"Dear friends, as you all know we need to prepeare for the coming battles against...." he said but then a loud crack from the bunring fire covered up the last words so that only those within 10 yards could hear it.

"We must be prepeared when the day comes that we must engage with the powers roaming around the city, we can't avoid the coming struggles my friends." He said and continued "We will discuss about our plans tomorrow but now we need to rest"

Others did as Gareth said and slowly began to sleep but before Estelle had the change to get to sleep Gareth asked her to join him.

They walked away so that others couldn't hear them speak.
Gareth told Estelle about the information he had gathered about one certain happening within the walls of Nez. They both knew that digging thing up would be dangerous but they had still decided to furfill that goal.

Before going to sleep they looked at each others and memorised the old days but past was long gone and they could never get it back. The lovers kissed before Estelle walked towards the extinguished fires. Gareth looked towards this woman he had met so long ago and wondered how would the coming days affect their relationship.

(sorry for bad start couldn't really come up with anything)

The camps were empty and west road was under attack....it had not gone well for the Brotherhood.The Brotherhood had not worked perfectly recently but now it would change.

Gareth stood next to the burning landing boats and wondered if it was any use at all, the sons might or might not return but that wasn't Gareth's worst concern, he was worried about what was to come.

He wondered were they ever going to win this war....if they would gain control of Nez the king's troops could take it back on any moment....there was a need for a plan B.

Right now he could not attend to that matter due to the recent conflict at west road but soon he might take up that cause.

As Gareth prepeared to tell his men to move again he memorised one thing.

"Uther tell the men to prepeare to move but don't make them rush, I need to write one letter concerning our new job" He said.

Two men wearing dark colored cloaks were walking towards the market district.

"We shoul pick up the pace we have dropped off" one of them, the larger one, said.

"Don't worry fella there is lots of plundering for us even tough we did drop off" the another one with brown curly moustache said and continued "They won't have a change against this attack. We surely got more troops than them."

The larger one laughed a little but then he stopped when he hear a silent crack.

He stopped the another one and said "What was it?"

The other repplied "Surely it was just a rabb...." but those words were let unheard as an arrow flew from the trees and pierced his chest.

Larger one pulled his sword and shield. "Why did we drop off..." he thought.

A man dressed in dark leather armor dropped off from the trees and pulled his sword. It was Justin.

The large man started a charge towards his enemy but suddenly he saw a knight behind Justin and then suddenly there was another one.

The man turned around and ran. He dropped his shield so that it wouldn't slow him down.

In front of him he saw a gap between two tall trees. If he just would make it in time he would escape to the woods.

But then a new person appeared....a hooded woman in leather armor armed with two swords.

The man struck his sword towards her but with a smooth move she dodged and cut a deep wound into his back.

The man fell and never rose again.

The warriors grouped up and Estelle revealed her face and said "Well atleast we know they came this way"

"Several tracks lead to the market district. Shall we pursue?" Justin asked

"Not yet. We aren't faster than them, pursue would be pointless right now. Lets clear this area and then we can move on" Gareth repplied and continued "Lets move out we will get our revenge on later date"

Somewhere within Military Ward

Gareth watched down from top of an small roof and wondered when would Thierful arrive?

Never had he guessed that he would end up fighting fallen grail champion on the streets of Nez but tht was the truth.

Gareth gazed down on the streets and saw peasants walking around...he would do it for them.

He could feel his armor warming up in the sunlight and his weapons were ready.

Then he saw a woman riding a beautiful horse approching towards him by the street. He had been expecting her.

Gareth started to land down back on the street and while doing so he wondered would he ever see his friends again...

Somewhere Outside Nez

In chill wind Estelle, Justin, Reynard, Uther and Lionel stood next to a small stone monument.

The monument was a picture of a knight wielding a sword in his hands.
Small statues which looked like peasants stood next to the knight, and on a small gold tablet read "Gareth "The Huntsman" The one who stood among the common men".

Silently Gareth's companions watched the statue and soon after one by one they left, first Uther then Reynard followed by Justin and Lionel until only Estelle stood next to the statue.

Tears filled her eyes. She tought about all those years she had spent with Gareth...her love. So fast it had happened...too fast.

Even tough Gareth had fallen against his foe his sacrifice had not been forgotten, perhaps if Gareth hadn't fought Thierfulf would have never fallen.

Estelle began to turn around but then she felt a strange warm feeling on her shoulder and as she turned around she saw a mist like figure.

First she was shocked but then she realized that there was something familiar on that creature and then she undertood it was Gareth...

Mist took a more physical form and Gareth's figure could clearly be seen.

There he stood in glowing armor carrying a helmet in his hand.

Hands reached out around Estelle and for a long moment there was a deep silence as if the whole world had silenced.

Gareth kissed her lovedone and backed down.

He put on his helmet and silently watched Estelle deep into her eyes.

Then a fog rose and slowly Gareth disappeared into the mist.

Estelle now knew that her love was in a better place.

After Gareth was gone Estelle stood there for a few moments and made her decision. After looking at the statue once more she turned around and walked away.

In her head she thinked about her future and how would she continue to pursue their cause and maybe someday she would see a free peasantry.
