Before the Empire
Before the coming into the Empire, Krutikov was travelling towards the lands that some of said had a great army. So acquiring his items being sent by the leaders he marched off alone. Walking countless leagues to arrive in a war torn land that has lost its unity and from what he understands its purpose. ...
Arriving recently from the far lands of his ancestors, Krutikov arrvies into the unknown lands, of the multiple adventures that traveled from his peoples and the ally clans none of come back with any word or news of the lands. But with the desperation of finding new allies and armies to assist in destroying the horde that came into the ancestors homes. Now with just a crude map obtained of one of the forsaken's bodies, Kruitkov walks. After a multiple day journey staying more to the outside edges of the map, he hears a voice call to him by a little tiny creature, it was strange that the voice spoke in the language of historians. It said something so Kruitkov decided to follow for the time, well he followed after taking a arrow to the neck, kindof. Apparently the two other with him are men by the name of Kaghar and Rufus. Both apparently can use the parapsychological arts. But after leaving the forest they met with a boatman that wasn't a boatman, and invited them to meet some random prince guy.
So after we get to this prince, we find this weird figure wearing a mask, squeaky voice sounds like a rat. He afford a slave army, should of killed him were he stands slaves are worthless. But he talked to the two other ones for awhile. Afterwords he gives the one named Rufus a letter to give to some other person apparently part of a rebellion against the ruling nation. You would think they would learn a lesson or two but guess all the nations are like this. Damned fools if you ask me. But otherwise he hands the letter to the Rufus one and leads us to a weird stone which we had to slice our finger and atone ourselves to it, of course it was so close to the floor a ant could touch it.
But after going through the portal we arrive in a cave, and walking out of the cave we find ourselves on a cliff. Them noticing a friend of theirs we decided to climb down the cliff. Once we got down we were met by their friend and two fools, the one thinking I am a mere animal, should of killed him were he stands. But I don't think the other two would like that too much, will have to screw with the fool later on. Didn't take too long for it to happen either, once we got to the cabin they decided to lay a trap for some poor bugger, but when the two of them went to go wash dishes with the Manah one, Rufus decided to say to start a fire, didn't say where, so I built it behind the cabin. Foolish of me, I forgot to get a big stick to trap the fool and his friend into the cabin to let them cook for awhile. But as said I was a fool and forgot. After the burning business they woke me up, and decided they wanted to go take a walk in the forest, while walking we walked into a little bit of a tangle with some thorns. While fighting the bugger had to do some runnin work, hate the runnin work, getting buggers out of a trap like normal. But we managed to beat up the thing, and it decided to leave us alone. Afterwords we decided to go back to the cabin, which once we got back the two fools were still not there.
Starting a watch with Manah, we went to sleep, she woke me up in the middle of the night and started talking about some guy that needed some help killin a mask figured, thought she might be talking about squeaky. Apparently I was wrong, but anyway. In the morning the group started discussing what we should do, they started arguing about everything. Bah, I was sick of listening to it, walking outside noticed what I assumed was the man Manah was talking to, seemed like a decent fellow. Wanted to get something down to protect his homeland, know the feeling. Afterwords we started to follow'em up to the mansion. When we got inside it was dead inside, and apparently met a friend of Rufus, who wanted to mess with'em. It was quite a fight that is for sure, most of them went down. Khagar and I managed to stay standing, got a good swing and this globe which managed to dissipate whatever the bugger was at the end. All of us managed to survive, except the woodsmen. But from what he said I doubt that was he actually form. Especially with the flowers.
Season Two Episode One.
Receiving a message to guard and protect a Lascarii by the name of Sansangda? Heads out to meet with Manah and these two others which went by the names Leo and the other by the name Ellios.
Arriving and the meeting place of the Lascarii Manah meets a man and she talks with him for a while, after that we met the “Lady” who was quite a nuisance the whole entire time bitching about needing wine, needing water for her feet bla a bla a bla. Arriving at the next stop for the child we stop at one of the training grounds of some of the Empire’s Regiments, complaining about wanting to see some people fight and die. So going up to one of the captain’s Kruitikov asks if they have any prisoners or whoever that he wouldn’t mind getting hurt enough to make them look “dead”, but not be able to convince the captain to let him have some, but also asks if the captain would fight instead of saying he would the captain leads Kruitkov to a man named Antipedes a sword master for the Empire training the soldiers. Trained in the powers of the Eldtrich, Antipedes and Kruitkov have a short conversation while walking out to the center of the area between the common soldiers and the Lascarii.
During the battle Leo sends an insult at Antipedes almost instantly during the fight, Kruitkov watches Leo get brutally cut down almost right after the battle starts, like a mere child he went down pathetically. Thought Antipedes does call a medic for the bugger. After taking Leo down Antipedes focused on Kruitkov while casually attacking Ellios here and there, Antipedes attack fast and often lighting fast attack at least what seemed as if by a gods speed hitting six times. With a couple getting passed Kruit’s speeds but not many, but when they pass they did a large amount of damage. But not being able to get enough hits against Kruit, Kruit and Ellios were able to chip away against Antipedes until finally he was hurt enough that it was time to stop the battle. Bowing Antipedes finishes the battle, and asks if Kruitikov would like to join him for a drink, and asks is the other two deserve to have one as well, Kruitkov says the one does also deserve the drink, the other can sleep.
Entering the tent, Kruit obtains a drink from Antipedes(or wine bearer) after which Kruit sits and starts talking to Antipedes about how he learned to fight as he did, as some other things for about 30 minutes, till Kruit tells Celeborn that while this would be a great place to stay and let the child sit for a while, that duty does call and sometimes the best training is to listen to someone complain about everything.
Getting back to the chair, Kruit listen’s to Sansangda bitch for x amount of time, that just tells her that it is advised for soldiers that where amour to clean up so that the armour doesn’t stain or get destroyed, like cleaning a ship deck every day. Afterwords takes her to whichever locations that she also wants to go.
Season Two Episode Two.
After a long week of training with when he could with Antipedes, Kruitkov goes and speaks with the Captain that he had spoken with before, and thanks him for letting him fighting Antipedes instead of wasting someone else’s life, after stating this he asks if he could train with any of the units to further learn more how the Empire works within itself as a military, given the opportunity to do so he will train with the unit that the officer assigned him to during the week.
Afterword hearing about a group going into the woods to fight some bandits, Kruitkov assimilates himself into the unit that Antipedes advises is heading up, to go into the forest. Assisting some of the newer soldiers to pack their bags better, making sure they have enough provisions/checking to make sure their swords are sharp enough.
During the travel there Kruitkov will travel on the left side of the unit, keeping that side safer from potential surprise attack. Being a quiet observer except when any of the other officers would casually ride by or ask him anything.
Arriving at the camp, Kruitkov will dig himself a foxhole on far end on the camp where possible danger could come from, afterwords he will go and check the fortifications making sure any defenses can withstand a surprise assault

Seeing a Charcoal Grey man taking off his armour for the fear of drowning in some mud, and being touched by Samsanga, after a bit when Samsanga started walking away Kruitkov walks up to the group and pokes a bit of fun at the one they call Nazdrak, who apparently is being accompanied by Kaghar, and the woman Jaedis. Following the group to the bank of the swamp, listens to them bicker more about which way to go and how to get over there, ending it Samsanga casts some magic for the group to be able to walk on water and if it were land and the group heads over the water, after a bit once the group makes it over they notice that no one is around, Kruitkov decides to walk over to the one building that was said to have supplies in it manages to not notice a trap and falls into a small pit, swinging his hammer he obtains some of the spikes that were not destroyed using them a pitons climbing out of the hole trying to get to the group with them stating and yelling about getting attack. But with no signs of any enemies about except a couple arrows in some of the party, Kruitkov goes over to the building he was trying to already get to, and obtains some of the items that were there.
Season Two Episode Four.
While drinking from a cup while Manah and Samsanga walk back over the water, they talk together for a bit before getting across that lake to easier talking distance. They talk about how the Lascari can communicate better with themselves, while land dwellers cannot normally. After a bit she says a thing about following your leads, and asks Nasdaq agrees with the emperor and if he would kill him if it was it was for the greater good. Then questions Jaedis the same question saying she wouldn’t be able to do it because she has known him for long enough to trust him while Nazdrak wasn’t sure.
Krutikov asks her what she would do for someone that you love, would betray your own people for someone you love, not everyone has the same knowledge your people of what everyone else feels at times.
She states how that people being different can be a danger to her people. How her people are one of the strongest and that humans are fractured and are brutal. That they do whatever they can for their own advancement. How the Orcs are the closest to the land species to the Lascarii. Krutikov picks up a flower starts rambling. Do you know something, you have things in the water like this, I have things like this in my lands. To some people it represents something, hope. I have seen things that I don’t want to see again, I have done things I don’t want to do again. I came to these lands for hope, my people can destroy whatever menace back there, but I was sent there to obtain help to where we will not be utterly messed up doing, where there is only a couple left. I don’t know your people well, I probably never will. I don’t like water that much, you have to realize you are on something that you don’t like much. But you were sent here for a form of hope, yes your people can probably destroy whatever your facing, but what cost will it be, how many will die, how many will never hear again.
Samsanga goes on how we don’t lack solidarity, and that she crossed a line that we let her just cross just because. That they are still weak and that they need to learn. That they still have a chance, that they can still prove that they are worthy of their aid.
They investigate a body for a while, believing that it was magical, while Kruit just stands over it rather confused. How they should just cut off a piece of him that is magical but believed that it could explode. Kruit throws the body parts into the pit. After which they get lost in the forest for quite a while. Follows random invisible voice for quite a long time, making it to a strange area with dark shadows crawling in the trees. He calls out if there was anyone that and that they would like to speak to whoever is there. Standing there for way to long of a time, talking about random things, giving Jaedis an amulet to give to the queen, and being told to run for whatever was there wasn’t nice. But they were given the information to reach the bandit camp.
