The Run of Friendship (thysbae)

A city thrust in a land of magical corruption, where survival isn't taken for granted, Yaralon is a jewel on Eastern Idalos. It is world renown for its mercenary companies, for their spiritual culture that appears a bit backwards and counter intuitive to more "civilized" types. Yaralon is where the strong go to discover that they are anything but, and mercenaries learn that only Yari mercs are true mercs.

The Run of Friendship (thysbae)

The ship arriving from Desnind made port just as the sun began to set. Making his way of the boat for the first time in what felt like forever, Rabu was greeted with a completely different world. Hardly any trees to be seen and the ones that were present were alien to the Tunawa. This new place seemed so empty compared to the dense greenery that covered nearly every part of Desnind.

“Were deh people?” Rabu called back to the crew as he finished riding his donkey driven cart of the descending slope.

“Yur it, the closest city is that way” One of the crew men pointed to a far of location that Rabu had to squint to see.

“Good luck little guy,” Another crew man chuckled. “Yur gonna need it!”

The crew man ignored Rabu after that, as they got to work preparing to sail away. The Tunawa’s eyebrows tensed up as the unsettling feeling that he made a dire mistake creeped in. He watched the ship depart feeling his hope go with it. He stood there at the empty docks set up in the middle of nowhere, afraid to go forward but also of being alone in the dark wilderness. It didn’t take long for one fear to overpower the other and for Rabu to get back on his wagon and set a corse for civilization.

Terrifying noises echoed in the distance that inspired Rabu’s tiny heart to pound in his chest and his eyes to dart in each direction. The Tunawa could hardly think straight as his mind conjured up terrifying imagery of what might be prowling in the night. He began to feel a tinge of hope when he heard the sound of horses in the distance. They got louder and Rabu could see men riding them and it brought a smile to his face.
It wasn’t until Rabu witnessed them drawing weapons and aiming their bows at him did he know the dangers he was about to face. Before the mortal born could get away he was surrounded by gruff looking people aiming their weapons directly at him, making it impossible to leave.

“Ya fucking try one bloody thing and yur as good as dead, eh?” Growled a massive beast of a man with a gaping scar that tore into his left eye. Rabu shook his head in compliance and reluctantly followed them. His mind was racing with methods of escape but the only one that could work involved betraying his donkey friend and he could never do that.

After a long ride they arrived a the stone entrance of a group of crumbling ruins. One of the men walked up to Rabu and thats the last thing he could remember before he woke up in a cage made of bones.

One of Rabu's Mortal Born abilities involves emean creatures called Dooglewogs doing pranks and causing misfortune for the Rabu. I roll a dice every time Rabu receives a compliment or uses his other powers and whatever it lands on will happen in the thread he's in.
If a Grader or Mod wishes to add a misfortune as a reward that would be wonderful but please be sure that it's only temporary and isn't too disruptive or disturbing (I'm mostly going with light and silly) look on my character sheet for examples.

Adjusting from the rocking of the boat to solid land took Thysbae a moment, and for whatever reason, that displeased Huyr. The woman had been upset with him for much of their journey. Perhaps it had to do with the fact that he was neither a child nor a mage and she would need to relay this news to the person she had intended to bring him back to. Her sour expression left him cowering as his legs wobbled slightly, steps unsure. The dark haired woman went on to bark orders at the men around her, voice strained with stress.

“Where’s the city?” He’d been told he’d be taken to a city; he was seeing quite a lot of open space. ”You have to ride out to it.” The answer was given to him by a man who seemed slightly sympathetic to his plight. He’d been with them aboard the ship, one of the crew. One of his eyes was closed, shut by a scar that ran over it. His smile was rueful as he continued. ”Yer lady’s taking you on the Run.”

“Run? What’s that?”

”You’ll be seeing it, soon.” The seriousness of his voice was unhelpful in calming him. The man had also seen to deciding that he was done helping him, head down as he returned to his work. The mortal born might have thought he’d heard the man offer up a silent prayer to an immortal. That didn’t bode well.

”Get moving - on the horse.” Her grip on him was tight, steering him towards the horse.

“But I don’t know how to ride a horse.”

”What do you know to do?” Before he could answer, she held up a hand and turned him in another direction, this time to a wagon. ”Just sit in the back here, then, and don’t try anything.” Huyr made her to the front of the wagon, seated beside the driver.

”We’re going to meet up with a few folks and then into the city we go.”

That seemed like a simple enough course of action. Bae nodded, though he realized soon after that she would not be able to see him or care that he agreed. Silent now, he pulled his knees up to his chest and leaned against the side of the wagon.

He wasn’t sure when he had fallen asleep or when they had begun to move, but their abrupt stop was what had woken him. Something was stuck in the wagon beside him, voices speaking though he couldn’t quite make out what was being said. But he could see that there was something in the cage - someone?

“Hello?”

The cage Rabu found himself in was clearly made with smaller tunawa in mind, leaving little room for him to move around. He could hear the sound of a moving carriage and the clopping of horse hooves in the dirt as well as the bumps of rough terrain underfoot. It wasn’t until he heard the muffled sound of captor that he remembered the dire situation he had found himself in. He looked through the bars of his cage and could clearly see that he had been placed in the back of the carriage and someone else was here. Rabu eyed the figure suspiciously, they didn’t seem like the others but how could he know for sure. The mysterious person looked to Rabu and gave a hesitant greeting. They visibly lacked the aggression and hardened look of the other bad men, rather baby faced and innocent looking in fact.

“Hello..I Rabu” Rabu whispered back while pointing to his chest.
“You not wid deh bad men… dis truth?” Rabu smiled faintly to the stranger. “Work wid me to be free, yes?”

Rabu didn’t know how they possibly could, he didn’t know who had the key to the metal lock on the door of his cage. Though if there was enough force put on the cage it might break, it was only held together with woven leather string after all. Then there was the matter of escaping a moving cart without bing seen. Rabu wasn’t a very good fighter and his new partner in crime didn’t seem like he was one ether. they might have to wait for the right opportunity, for the cart to stop and for them to be distracted with something.

“Any idea’s in head dat might help? Rabu asked hoping for some inspiration.
