It was the second day of the first month and a merchant Caravan caring various goods and carog was headed to Arthose port to sell their goods. The caravan had crossed the border into thormast not but a half hour ago when there was a high pitched yell from inside the thick shrubs that they were now travelling through. No soon than the yell begun did a group of thirteen raiders emerge from the large shrubs decending onto the Human guards.

"Raiders, To arms! protect the cargo lads!" said the commander of the guards.

it was then when the second wave of minotaur burst through the shrubbery and slammed into the wagons that carried the cargo and the slaves flipping them to one side. Then they too turned to confront the guards. Holding their ground the best they could the Guard rallied to one side of a wagon and began to defend themselves with shields from the onslaut of arrows and axe blows from the raiders.

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

Jarymn gripped his wrist irons and began to tear at them yelling at the guards to let him free. He began shaking the cage so much so that the wood where the bars rested began to buckle under the stress of his power.

Morin Oakenirons hid behind a crate that had fallen loose from one of the wagons trying not to get killed when he heard the booming voice of the Giant Jarymn who was shaking his cage and screaming as he knew he would be simply killed by these raiders. Morin found just enough couraget to sieze the cage keys from the dead commander now laying on his back with his skull split in two. Morin sped off dodging an arrow that fell just under his beard and then he hid just to the side of the Slaves cage.

"Shut up you stupid Giant! I am going to get you out i have the key but you have to promise to help get me out of here." Morin held the key out so the Giant would see his truth.

"Get me out! I help you." Jarymn not let go of the side of the cage and waited for Morin to help him.

Opening the door and un-cuffing the Giant Morin stepped aside and waited for the large creature that stood nude before him to crawl out the small door.

As Jarymn got to his feet he scooped up the dwarf placing him on his shoulder and gribbed the chains that only moments before had bound him. He torn them from the wagon and used them like a whip at the ground to clear three minotaur from his presence. Smiling Jarymn swung once more the chain and released it to fly through the air and into the raiders posistion from where they assaulted the guards. Jarymn looked at his nakedness and frowned. He went to work picking up a sword from one of the guards and began to skin some of the raiders using the sword as a knife letting Morin climb down one of his arms.

Only a single guard remained bloody and battered laying against the wagon amongst the bodies of his comrades. He knew he would not last long without the help of some of the passengers of the caravan.

Morin approached the guard and knelt offering him a hand to hold.

"I have no magic my friend you might die out here it is best you make your peace with whom ever you may worship as you are soon to be no more than a corpse here on the path."

Eragon was riding Narolth to Arthose. It is beautiful out today, is it not? Eragon thought to Narolth. It truly is, Narolth replied. Narolth flapped twice and rose farther in the air, look, over there, he thought. Eragon strained his eyes, [i] what is that? A traders caravan? Eragon thought back. Yes, it is. Something seems to be going on down there.

Morin let go of the now dead guards hand and looked towards the gleeful Giant sewing together various different skins of the raiders to make himself some clothing.
"Hey Giant. How does freedom sound? I need to get to Arthose and there are likely more bandits along the way."

Jarymn nodded thoughtfully and then pointed towards the sky at a dragon and it`s rider.

"A Dragon Rider probably a royal guard too best we just say you are my slave for now Giant. call me master until we know if we can trust him. Anyone else who isn`t dead and wants to get to Arthose is welcome to come with us."

Morin began to instruct Jarymn to pick up the wagons and move what he could to the carts which he would pull until they got to Arthose. Jarymn managed to put the cargo into three wagons which he could pull by the reins which the dead horses were hooked to. Morin looked towards the others who had survived the attack.

"I would advise you salvage what you can from here we will likely be attacked again that was far to few bandits for that organization." Morin climbed up the wagons and sat down up front to talk to his new Giant Friend.

Teller sat atop his friend Thrull's shoulder as he walked heavy footed forward down the road.

"Well can you believe they just left it sitting there? I mean out in the open?" The kender Teller said laughing.
Thrull gave a hearty deep chuckle that was booming before speaking "Well I'd hardly say their pocket is in the open my friend."

As their conversation carried on and they moved forward they came upon a caravan that had obviously been recently attacked and the blood and bodies showed signs of quite the outstanding defeat. Thrull sniffed the air vigorously "Smells like some of mine Teller." he spoke with a grimace. Teller nodded "Well lets call out for survivors." He said ever unafraid of consequences.

Before Thrull could begin to poke holes in the idea or protest Teller sounded off using a tiny bit of magic to project his voice. "Hello anywhere there? Is anyone still breathing is anyone in danger? We can help if you need we do not intend to harm you so please make yourself known." Teller said in his kind and sweet manner.

A little voice quite magnified sounded into the air and peeking Morin`s interest and concern perhaps more Raiders come to end the fight once and for all.

Jarymn put down the chains which he was using to hold the wagon and would pull from to stand tall holding a recently uprooted tree over his head like a spear and scooped Morin up in his free hand to bring him into visibility.

"Speak now friend"

Morin quite surprised by the Giant`s kindness stood proud as any Dwarf and relied to the call now in clear visibility of the speakers.

"Hello there we were attacked but we are okay now we are heading to Arthose port to sell what goods we have left. Would you like to accompany us? We could use some extra hands on board."

Morin held out a recently commandeered sword.

Eragon told Narolth to go and land down near the traders caravan. After she landed Eragon lightly jumped off and walked up to someone holding a sword. "You need an escort?" he asked, hearing the last statement.

Morin looked at the Dragon Rider with a mixture of concern and delight

"That we do but might I ask by what terms are you offering such aid? Not many Dragon Riders wonder about I am rather concerned you might be on the run from the Three king and their Assassins whom would surely be following you."

Jarymn looked at the dragon puzzled before he turned his head to Morin

"Why does the dragon not eat him he look tasty enough to me? Is he Sick?"

Morin laughed some and the crawled down of the Giant`s large body to greet the new companions more formally.

"I am on patrol, and this will help me patrol the land, while also giving us company. Narolth is not eating any of you because he is polite. So do you accept our aid or not?" Eragon said.

Morin deemed this answer agreeable enough and motioned for the Dragon rider to join them. He looked forward to the now setting sun wondering what the future may hold for this group and himself. He new he would require ambition from his newly found companions as well as himself. Perhaps only time would tell. Morin drew closer to the Dragon Rider and shook his hand before polite-fully bowing to him.

"Morin OakenIrons dwarf merchant and Forge Master from Thormast herself. The Giant is my slave never mind him I find it best that he does the lifting while I do the talking."

Jarymn speared the tree into the ground jut as he held it leaving it upside down before reclaiming his position of pulling the wagons and waiting for the command to continue.

Eragon bowed his head, "greetings Forge Master Morin. My name is Eragon Kramer, my dragon's name is Narolth the Fast. What is your name Giant?" Eragon called out, interested.

Morin never even thought to ask the Giant his name before the question was posed perhaps he could lie his way out of this one yet.

"Giant speak your name the Dragon Rider wishes to know it"

Morin began to sweat a little in silence hoping that the Giant would not cause any unnecessary violence to occur here.

Jarymn looked up from is crouched position in front of the wagon before standing tall holding the chains at his waist lifting the wagon from the ground and spilling a crate off the back before addressing Eragon

"Jarymn is name. I Called Jarymn the Giant. I from Elven forest."

Morin interrupted before the dim witted Giant said anything more.

"Aye that is him my slave. Now go back to work and pick up that crate you idiot!"

Morin turned and addressed Eragon once more

"Nice to meet you. you mentioned a patrol who might you be patrolling for Eargon master Rider?"

"Trouble is who and what we are looking for. Have you seen any lately?" Eragon asked as Narolth came forwards.

Morin knew he would not be able to take the Dragon Rider in a fight of arms nor the dragon but he knew he could talk a Kender out of his topknot so he rested his hands on his belt and smiled.

"Only what happened here my good sir."

He chuckled as he motioned his right hand towards the bodies and wreckage.

"What exactly happened here?" said Eragon as Narolth moved closer and closer to the dwarf...

Morin sighed as he recalled the events that landed him here talking to this man who was now questioning everything he was saying and doing.

"Well I was travelling with this group of merchants to Arthose port so I might sell my wares and gain some more wealth as many Dwarves to but while we crossed this foliage we were attacked by raiders. They stormed out of the bushes and began firing their bows while minotaur charged the caravan`s and tipped them over. It wasn't until I let Jarymn out that they let up."

Morin satisfied with the story and turned to make more preparations to leave as well as greet the Kender and His Minotaur friend more properly.
