Canamarth unfolds a piece of parchment and starts reading:<BR>"The TTT (The Themedes Tax) is as follows: 25\% of all your cutlery. Maeglin will take care of the forks, Themedes gets the spoons and I will look after the knives." <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Volcanus watches as an arrow flies right past his head. legolas jumps out of a tree. "raising taxes are you? Well if you dont stop I will kill all of you that arrow was just a warning, and Gandalf(my other name) is excellent with fireworks, so give me all the taxes you have now that spoon and fork and all or die!"

Maeglin gets down and walks up to the man.He draws his sword and then the fight starts.Meaglin finally kills the man who is only trained in archery and not in sword fighting but still Maeglin is hurt a little.<BR>He mounts his horse and they set of for the town of Winderwane for their quest for taxes.<BR><BR><BR>OOC-thats the best i can do for a fight.

OOC: That wasn't very nice, Volcanus. It's not considered good behaviour to kill off other roleplayers. Most of the time you can come to better arrangements. I said most of the time. Not always. If this is the alter ego of one Gandalf1000, I'm not so sure. What say you, Legolas14? Should Volcanus edit his message, thus giving you another chance? I was just about to show you the knives I have... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-devil.gif"border=0> You wanted to see our cutlery, didn't you?<BR><BR>

Ok then, if legolas is unwilling to turn up again, let's move on.<BR><BR>The party of three rode on into the next village. It was a small hobbit settlement. <BR>"I wonder what's to be gotten here," Canamarth muttered and demounted in front of what looked like a cozy inn. The sign said <i>The Mad Cow</i> and featured a mad cow (obviously) jumping over the moon.

Themedes eyes warily of the peasant folk of the inn. His hand resting on the dark agate pommel gem of his sword, Themedes moves forward, to protect Maeglin and Canamarth from any possible attacks.<BR><BR>"Easy SpineCutter...", he whispers to his sword "...let´s just wait and see."<BR><BR>The dark gem on the sword seems to pulsate with inner power. Themedes grins.

"Er ... guys" - the voice from waist-height again, this time behind them - "actually it was me who remarked on the sword, not the gent over there in the corner. I'm down here!" As they turn, a hobbit steps forward, smiling a little sheepishly.
