The house that Zelosse, Sven, and Raivis were in groaned as the fire spread, licking hungrily at the walls and ceiling as they tried the door. The knob turned easily in Raivis' hand, but he wound find the iron knob heating up under his touch, and the door didn't move. It was jammed, and the children's crying grew louder from behind it. The fire on the roof was growing quickly, and the smoke inside was growing thicker and darker by the moment.
The children gathered around their beloved pets, sobbing. The oldest, a girl, held onto her two little brothers as they cuddled the puppy and it's mother. "Thank you very much sir, for helping us. These dogs are our livelihood. They're bred to be famous hunters for the nobility." She gave him a grateful smile, but turned white as a sheet when he asked what had caused all the devastation. "I'd... I'd rather not talk about it. You should go see the mayor. He should be by a great old oak at the edge of the woods. That's the town's emergency point."
The children dashed off the minute Ralun let go of them, and as he returned to the town again, his path would be impeded by a burning building collapsing before him. The town was beginning to come down completely.
Tobi would find the village square, which was really more of a circle, empty. The center of town was a ring of smoldering ruins, with not a soul in sight. There were no answers to be found there. Only that the fire was not started by any sort of obvious means.
The horses began to whicker nervously as Tyler began to walk away, and one by one began to follow him. There were nine horses, one for each of the party members. They plodded through the silent center of town, waiting for their rescuer to steady their nerves.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.
