Outcasts and Refugees
IN THE ASTRAL SEA
“His might is true and he is the rightful heir to the lost kingdom!” a voice from the east shouted.
Correlon scratched his brow. “But he is not disciplined enough, he is a murderer, too susceptible to Shar’s charms, and his warrior’s spirit that now serves you, could easily be swayed toward the will of Bane.”
“I’m aware of this, but his heart IS TRUE!” Tempus’s fists pounded with a frustration that caused a thunder storm in the North of Faerun.
“Calm yourself, rebel.” Corellon replied.
“Bah!” Tempus’s back turned, “You’ve grown soft arcanist-lord. You favor the moon worshippers impartially and it can doom us all.”
“STOP!” He called to Tempus. “Might you remember that I am the one who downed the vile Gruumsh!? Is it not I who am responsible for the civilized races knowledge of the ‘one-eyed God’?”
Tempus froze, in respect, “Aye.”
“There are many others who can deliver this blow to their deceipt.” Corellon added.
“Who? The Dark ones who’s heritage betrayed you? The ranger of Mieliki? Or perhaps the travelling scoundrel of the west? Or would you have the chosen representatives of Silverymoon fight for this honor?! They would surely tear the city apart for a chance to wield the Nai-Rutha!”
Corellon let forth a great sigh, that came forth as a breeze across the dessert of Calimshan.
“Perhaps you’re right.” Corellon admitted. “I will observe the warrior further.”
Tempus nodded with something close to a smile, “At least he’s got that Templar of death’s mercy at his side. A blessing for the lot of us.”
Corellon nodded “Indeed. Where is Kelemvor in all of this anyways? I did request his presence here, considering his involvement.”
“Would you really expect anything less than his absolvement of the situation?” Tempus answered.
Corellon turned and paced away. “Thank you for your time Tempus. It’s been… enlightening.” And just as quickly, he vanished from the space.
Tempus, alone, cast a look toward the realm below. “God-speed warrior. Your prayers have been light, but I cast the fate of the realm on your spirit.” He chucked a stone that sent several Griffons on a mountain spire into flight. “So help us all that I’m right.”
