Lai-Xeng and the Emperor's Avenger


One day as Lai-Xeng was sitting by the road side dining on a bowl of plain rice, his old childhood friend, Mah-Waon came riding by on his fettered mount, armor ablaze in the morning sun, his helm and shield depiciting a fiery pheonix, symbol of his beloved Emperor!

" Lai-Xeng, is that you? It has been ages seen our paths last crossed, and still you sit by roadsides eating plain rice! As for me, I am one of the Emperor's chosen avengers now! I have done well for myself eh old friend?"

"greetings childhood friend", was all Lai-Xeng said in response, as he continued eating from his bowl.

"You know, Lai-Xeng", continued the proud Mah-Waon, "If you would just learn to cultivate your subservience to the Emperor, you would not have to live on plain rice"

"Learn to live on plain rice, Mah-Waon, and you would not have to cultivate the Emperor", Lai-Xeng calmly replied.

"Hrrmmphh", exclaimed Mah-Waon, and rode off in a cloud off dust, feeling none the wiser. Go to Comment

"Bastard!"

"There be talk that the Queen's son is a bastard! Since all good-folk know it couldn't be the King himself thats responsible for that huge hairy child! That frail husband o' hers is incapable. Some say the blacksmith himself is responsible! The Queen always liked em' big afterall! Others claim the father is that slimy, shameless bard, Jemrolio. The little boyo has his sickly-green eyes, no less. Wouldn't that be a hoot! Throw down your coin and bet on who the father is! we're bound to get to the truth eventually! Pay attention I'm talkin' to ya'!"

"Singing Manticore"



"Did ya' hear about the singing manticore of Pefwen's Wood? I heard this from a halfling mind you, so shake some salt on it, but the little fellow swears up and down he heard the filthy beast singing with a beautiful woman's voice. Well no, I guess I dont believe that one either, but you never know! I heard a few fellas are heading out next week to see for demselves. Eh?..Yes, I said a Manticore! By the gods, I wish you would pay attention, so I wouldn't have to repeat myself!"

"Crows and Ravens"

" They say a murder of crows and ravens, huh..what?...yes both! Stop interrupting me! Flew in with the setting sun, they did, and headed for the Cathedral's spires. I saw a few myself, circling the tower of Gau'rrane, the high priest, circling with a purpose they were! Couldn't tell what that was all about, but they were no ordinary birds, those blackwings! Next day, I here from one the Cathedral's stable-boys, that Gau'rrane left at dawn, travelling west, with full retinue in tow. Thats all I know...wait, they mentioned something about a war. What do you mean 'how can i forget the war part'? Dont make me reach over and slap you!"

"Poisoned Wine"

" I wouldn't drink that if I were you!...why not? I'll tell you why not, because there's been talk. Remember that vintner's son? The one that died in that boar-hunting accident a year back? Rumor says twas no accident. At least not as the vintner's wife tells it! She's friendly with my Gladdys, you see, and according to her, the vintner says it was the king's arse-of-a-nephew's fault that the boar gutted poor young Haller. Whats my point? I'll tell you my point! according to Gladdys, who heard it from the vintner's own wife, the vintner has been plotting his vengeance, while deep in his own cups. On the King hisself no less! Somethin' bout poisoning every bottle in the realm if thats what it took! He wont rest till some kin o' the King dies, to make up for his own boy's death! Aye! now your spitting that wine up arent ya' boy? hehhe"

"Crying Swordsman"

" I heard from Pohg, who heard from Uyta, that the greatest swordsman that ever lived, is coming this way. Should be here on the morrow! He's travelling alone, and tears stream from his eyes as he rides. Must be real upset bout' somethin'. Uyta told Pohg, who told me, that they say he's challenging any man or woman he comes across to a duel. He tells them that if they kill him, they would be doin' him a favor! Can you believe that barmy bastard! Says you'd do im' a favor if ya' kill him! No one's managed it yet though, as ye' might imagine. Who?..you? hehehe, you couldn' kill him if he lay down in front of ya' and went to sleep!"

"Evil Baby"

" Seems they found the body of a man and his wife, by the lake. Not a scratch on em'. No blood no nothin'! Nobody can figure out how they died, not even the coroner, though that one is so deep in his cups he wouldn't know a dead cat from a flying pigeon. Anyway, the couple had a baby with im' according to my Gladdys when they went to the lake, but the toddler wasn't found! What do ye' make of that? It gets stranger too. They say they found the tracks of a crawling baby, heading away from the corpses, to a willow tree, but they stop there. If ye' ask me the baby's a killer! Eh?.. you heard me you trout-headed lout! Remember when he was born? Had a caul, he did! And one eye closed. Gladdys says he was evil from birth that one! Keep laughing you twit! I hope he comes for you next!"

"Fish Tale"

" Well, well, well, head hurtin ya'? I told ya' not to drink that dwarven swill! Look at ya' boy! I've seen better looking corpses in the grave! Anyway, get this. Was talking to the river-boat captain. Know what he tells me? They caught a gar last week, the size of a horse she was! Twelve feet long if she was an inch, he tells me. What?...yeah, I know dem' fisherman lie, but the captain wouldn't lie to me. Shut up an listen will ya'! They say they gutted this monster, know what they found? A man's hand holding a key. I wonder what that key opens, I do. Some great teasure I wager! Captain says he's keeping it on his barge now for safe keeping. He says the hand had a brand on its palm, but the cap' aint talking further! What?...you heard that one? Then why didn't you stop me you mangy drunk!"

"The Shipment"

" Mindin' me' own business as usual I was, when I here two chaps talking in Stabbin' Spoon alley. What was I doing there? never ye' mind. And dont be telling Gladdys either! Anyway, these two are talking real quiet-like, and I hear em' talking bout' some shipment comin' in next week. Dont know nothin' from nothin', but these here boys don't strike me as glassblowers, if ye' catch my meaning, so I keep listening...pass me that cheese rind...where was I? Oh so this shipment is due to arrive at the Glassblower's Guild, but dem' boys got other plans! Wonderin' what I should do with this one...eh? Ofcourse I think there's coin to be made here. And if ye' stop whistling like an idiot, I might be able to think of a way!"

"Wizards"

" Here comes Wuther the barkeep. Know what happened to him? Three of dem' wizard types, stroll into this here inn two days back, and talk to him real quiet-like. Then, wouldn't ya' know, Wuther turns, without another word, and takes em' down to his cellar. Now there I was, countin' the minutes, but I musta dozed off, cause when I wake up, there's Wuther shaking me and tellin' me to go home to Gladdys. Not bein' the nosy type I..eh? Keep quiet pebble-brain and listen! So off to home I go, but the next day I'm back, and there's dem wizards again, talking to Wuther all nicey-nicey, like he got somethin' they want. Its a mystery I tell ya'...wait shhh. here comes Wuther.
